Book Description: Johannes Janssonius van Waesberge for Gotfried Schultze, Hamburg & Amsterdam: 1674., 1674. 8vo. 2 parts in 1 vol. )(- 2)(8, 3)(4,A-2D8; *-2*8,a-d8,e4 (e 3&4 blank]. [42], 7-338,[94];[32],66 [4]p. Contemp. vellum, title in ms. on spine. Engraved extra-title by H. von Hensberg of balm man pointing at various heads on shelves, engraved t.p. vignettes. First Scheffer Edition. "Gaius Julius Hyginus (ca. 64 BC Ð AD 17) was a Latin author, but whether a native of Spain or of Alexandria is not sure, a pupil of the famous Cornelius Alexander Polyhistor, and a freedman of Caesar Augustus, by whom he was made superintendent of the Palatine library, according to Suetonius.Fabulae consists of some three hundred very brief and plainly, even crudely told myths and celestial genealogies, valuable for the use made by an author characterized by his modern editor as adulescentem imperitum, semidoctum, stultum of the works of Greek writers of tragedy that are now lost. This school-boy compilation represents in primitive form what every educated Roman in the age of the Antonines was expected to know of Greek myth, at the simplest level. The Fabulae are a mine of information today, when so many more nuanced versions of the myths have been lost. In fact the text of Fabulae was all but lost: a single surviving manuscript from the abbey of Freising, in a Beneventan script datable c. 900, formed the material for the first printed edition, negligently and uncritically transcribed by Jacob Micyllus, 1535, who may have supplied it with the title we know it by. In the course of printing, following the usual practice, by which the manuscripts printed in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries have rarely survived their treatment at the printshop, the manuscript was pulled apart, and only two small fragments of it have turned up, significantly as stiffening in book bindings" [WKPD]Scheffer (1621-1679) held the chairs of eloquence, politics, and later, natural law at the University of Uppsala. He was the first librarian of the university, as well.He edited numerous editions of Greek and Latin texts. VD 17 12:625735U (including 1:1047298F). STCN 167408. Schweiger I,464.

Book Description: Johann Hervagius [Herwagen], Basle: 1549., 1549. Folio. a4,a-z6,A4. [8],261,[23]pp. Handsome modern blind-tooled 1/2 morocco over incunable covered boards, paper label; t.p. repaired in blank margin, occ. foxing, nice crisp copy; old owner's name "Mariani Ruele, Carmelite, Rome 1737" on t.p, old owner's stamp; small circular dampstain on t.p, minor repaired wormhole in inner margin of last few leaves Printer's device on t.p., 48 astronomical woodcuts. Hyginus, commonly confused with the freedman of the emperor Augustus, compiled this handbook of mythology, probably in the second century A.D. He was ignorant of Greek, which accounts for some of the absurdities present in his work, and the usual title Fabulae is due to the editio princeps of Micyllus who remains the only authority for the work since his manuscript is lost; this is the second edition of Micyllus, first published in Basel in 1535.Palaephatus (fl. late 4th cent. B.C.)rationalized myths in this, his only extant work. It held considerable influence during the Byzantine period.Fabius Planciades Fulgnetius (ca. A.D.467-532), probably the bishop of Ruspe exiled by the Vandals to Sardinia for his orthodox views, wrote the present offering in dialogue form, through which the muse Calliope reveals the meaning of the myths and Virgil the allegory upon which the Aeneid was composed.Lucius Annaeus Cornutus Phurnutus (fl. A.D.50), the freedman of Seneca, was a teacher of philosophy and rhetoric at Rome, counting Lucan and Persius among his disciples. Only one of his works, the present offering, is extant: in it he expounds the traditions regarding Greek mythology, using principles of Stoic criticism of such and incorporating allegory.Aratus (ca. 315-240/39 B.C.) was a stoic who under the patronage of the Macedonian king Antigonus Gonatas composed the present work. It is his best known work and concerns the northern and southern fixed stars, circles of the celestial sphere, the rising and setting of stars, and weather signs. As an astronomical poem, its style is based upon that of Hesiod and it incorporates Homeric terms.Proclus (A.D. 410/12-485)was a neoplatonic philosopher, a prolific author, and the last great synthesizer of the Greek philosophical inheritance. He bore a great deal of influence upon Medieval and Renaissance thought.The Aratos and Proculs are printed in Greek and Latin. VD 16 H6480. Adams H1252. Houzeau/Lancaster 762. Zinner 1958.

Book Description: per Eusebium Episcopium, 1570. Couverture rigide. - per Eusebium Episcopium, Basilae (Bâle) _1570, in Folio (32,2x21,5cm), (8) 251pp. 24., Un Vol. relié. - Une édition illustrée similaire, mais avec une collation différente, a été éditée en Suisse en 1549 chez un autre éditeur. La première édition des fables date de 1535 et celles de l'astronomie poétique de 1475. Demi Veau chocolat milieu XIXe. Dos lisse, filets dorés et à froid. Plats de papier à la cuve refaits récemment. Une mouillure claire sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage partant de la marge supérieure et s'étendant sur un court tiers de la page. Texte en grec et en latin. Illustré de 48 vignettes. Un des plus célèbres livres de mythologie dans lequel Hyginus décrit les constellations et leurs corrélations mythologiques. Les Fables et L'Astronomie poétique sont les principales œuvres d'Hygenus, un érudit du Ier siècle. Hyginus a travaillé sur des sources grecques aujourd'hui disparues, notamment Arastus et Erathostène, ce qui en fait toute leur valeur. Le livre rassemble quelque 300 mythes et généalogies célestes, illustrés de 48 vignettes représentant les figures du zodiaque, le soleil et la lune, et les planètes. Un des cratères de la Lune a été nommé Hygénis, en hommage à son livre sur l'astronomie. Hyginus vint d'Espagne ou d'Alexandrie à Rome comme esclave ou prisonnier de guerre, il fut plus tard affranchi par Auguste puis nommé directeur de la bibliothèque Palatine selon Suetone. On le compte parmi les amis d'Ovide. (8) 251pp. 24. Bookseller Inventory # 10012

The Phaenomena of Aratos (fl. 275 A.D.) are of special importance for their lasting influence on Roman and Renaissance thought.

Book Description: Basel: Johann Herwagen, March 1549., 1549. folio. pp. 4 p.l., 261, [25]index & colophon. some Greek text. numerous woodcut text illus. woodcut device on title. woodcut initials. A nice copy in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden bds., dated ‘1571’ on upper cover (some wear to spine, joints & corners, some spotting to upper cover, clasps lacking but brass catches present, small marginal tear in last leaf with slight loss of headline on recto, paper label on upper spine). from the Fürstenberg Court Library at Donaeuschingen, with small rubberstamp on title. Second Enlarged Edition of this collection of mythological and astronomical texts edited by J.Mycillus. The first edition of 1535 marked the first appearance in print of the Fables, a handbook of mythology compiled from Greek sources, probably in the second century, and based on a manuscript which has since been lost. The Poeticon Astronomicon, an elementary treatise on astronomy and the myths associated with the constellations, was first printed at Ferrara in 1475. Ratdolt’s illustrated edition of 1482 contained the earliest representations of the personified figures of the sun, moon, planets, and stars. There is some doubt as to the attribution of both the Fables and the Poeticon Astronomicon to Caius Julius Hyginus, a learned man and friend of Ovid, who was appointed librarian of the Palatine Library in Rome by Emperor Augustus, and the works are sometimes ascribed to another Hyginus from a later period. Among the other Greek and Latin texts included here are the Phaenomena of Aratus, the De Sphaera of Proclus, and the mythological handbooks of Palaephatus and Fulgentius. Adams H1252.
