Book Description: Hardcover. Hardcover. A suite of eighty-nine (89) full color pastels, painted on boards, 9 ¾" x 12 ½" created by Goor (1902-77) in the 1960's. The suite is based upon a famous episode, "The Ephebe of Pergamum" from the Satyricon by Petronious. Each image is painted on a black background, with representations of boys and young men engaged in various sexual activities. Many involve multiple participants, as well as background erotic devices. All the images are fully realized and painted in a full palette of colors. The artist has framed each image with a double border painted in contrasting colors. The images also contain a painted inscription in Latin relating to the text near the top border. The images were commissioned by Roger Peyrefitte, who describes them in his memoir, L';Innominato, as "a masterpiece of pederastic illustration that will never be surpassed". The works are housed in an extraordinary wooden box made by the artist, which incorporates various images from the text in relief. Undoubtedly a modern classic of erotic art. Please inquire for images and details. Bookseller Inventory # 5820

Book Description: s.n.t. (Helenopoli (Frankfurt am Mein), Ioan. Theobald Sconwetter) 1610, 1610. Rilegato. Book Condition: buono. 8vo (cm 15.5), 2 opere rileg. ins. In pergamena settecentesca con tassello al dorso, genuino esemplare pur se notevolmente brunito per la qualità della carta (quella tedesca tipicamente ricca di sedimenti ferrosi). Bel frontespizio inciso con scene allegoriche, pp. (12, incl. front.), 238, (1 di errata + 1 b.ca); pp. (6 + 2 bb.), 784. Interessante e non comune edizione del capolavoro di Petronio (giunto a noi frammentario) qui in edizione provvista di un ricco apparato critico di note ad opera di diversi autori. Nelle carte preliminari v'è un elenco dei codici e delle edizioni più antiche che sono state utilizzate dal curatore per redigere la presente edizione. In aggiunta si trovano giudizi di autori antichi e moderni su Petronio, dapprima quelli a suo favore e a seguire quelli contro. Il Satyricon ha infatti attirato su di sé nel corso dei secoli accuse di immoralità, legate soprattutto agli episodi erotici che punteggiano la trama del "romanzo". L'episodio centrale, quello della cena di Trimalcione,  corredato dalle peripezie del protagonista, Encolpio, che viaggia in compagnia di Ascilto e del giovinetto Gitone, con cui instaura un triangolo amoroso. La rivalità omosessuale tra Encolpio e Ascilto precipita proprio in occasione della cena trimalcioniana, con un violento scontro che si conclude con il "rapimento" di Gitone. Un secondo terzetto amoroso  quello formato da Encolpio, Gitone (che nel frattempo  ritornato) e il vecchio Eumolpo. La tematica amorosa non viene letta da Petronio in chiave spirituale; non c'è spazio alla castità, nessun personaggio  un credibile portavoce di valori morali. Il protagonista  sballottato tra peripezie sessuali di ogni tipo (eterosessuali, omosessuali, orge), ma il suo partner preferito  maschile; il sesso  trattato esplicitamente ed  visto come una continua fonte di situazioni comiche. Non a caso tra i giudizi contro Petronio viene citato un decreto del Concilio di Trento che recita così: "Concilii tridentini decretum nihil aliud vult, quam id genus scripta pueris esse interdicenda". Graesse IV, 238 "Nouvelle récension faite sur 3 mss et 11 anciennes éditions par Melch. Goldast, qui s'est caché sous le pseudonym de G. Erhard. et don't l'apparatus au PŽtronius est conserve dans la bibliot. de la ville de Breme. Dans plusieurs exempl. il manque parmi les pieces preliminaries la 'Disseratiuncula sciagraphica de Nerone Antichristi typo' de 8 ff. de prelim. (che infatti non  contenuta nemmeno in questo esemplare, certamente 'ab origine' data la genuinitˆ del ns. esemplare). Bookseller Inventory # TRtivo1433

Book Description: Amsterdam, edited by Michael Hadrianides, Latin, with Latin and Greek notes and one note in Arabic printed from type by Joan Blaeu I in several layouts and fonts including italic, his pictorial printer's mark on the title page with motto in Latin, Indefessus Agendo (Unceasing Action), the text with catchwords, headings, and footnotes, the separate title page for the Priapeia with its contents on verso, illustrated with 2 b/w engravings in the text, 1 table, and 12 b/w woodcut decorations (no repeats), printer's logo on title-page, seven decorated initials, three footpieces with horticultural motifs, and one small illustration, 1669. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. AVAILABILITY: Far closer textually, to the work we know today than any edition printed to that time, surviving copies are cherished and scarce. A worldwide search finds 59 institutional holdings including Cambridge, Princeton, Harvard, Columbia and the University of Texas. PROVENANCE (label and bookplate on endpaper): 1) Label of Librairie A. Durand of Paris; believed featured in his 1856 catalog. Auguste Durand [1830-1909] was a noted French organist, composer, and bookseller-publisher. 2) Pictorial bookplate of Willard H. (Herbert) Carr [1904-1974]. A member of APSA, he is remembered for his exquisitely composed landscape prints, some exhibited at St. Lawrence University and the Grolier Club in group shows, several preserved at Yale, including "Accents on Snow". His classics library was sold at auction (Christie's, 1998). CONDITION DETAIL: Pages: bright and clean, except some pages with light fox spots at a top edge or fore-edge, a few pages towards rear with light toning: substantial humidity cockling from p. 435: a few pages with creased tips. / Endpapers: Front Pastedown with tear, two chips and a seller note in pencil. / Covers: minor corner bends and soiling, short title in neat script at spine head. / Binding: solid and reliable, but tightened, and for many pages, book can't be laid flat. PAGINATION: As noted, lacks Leaf II, the often missing extra engraved title page by Romeyn de Hooghe, and is otherwise, confirmed complete. [1] leaf, preliminary blank; the first section numbered by leaves, (1) leaf, title page and 17 numbered leaves (34 pages); second section, the Satyricon, numbered by pages, 1-558 pp, the Fragmenta on pp. 513-558; third section, Satyricon indices, unnumbered, but 21 leaves (42 pages); fourth section, Priapeia, numbered by pages beginning with its separate title page, 1-168 pp; fifth section unnumbered but 4 leaves (8 pages), Priapeia index; [1] leaf, rear blank, [4] leaves, additional rear blank leaves. Text decorated with 12 woodcuts with 1 small illustration on p. 57. Other Illustrations: 1 table in text, p. 99 + 2 b/w engravings in text, p. 61 and p. 333. BACKGROUND: The Satyricon, one of the most influential works of literature from Classical antiquity was ravaged by censorship and only a scattering of accepted authentic fragments from the larger lewd work have been rediscovered. The most important is the Cena Trimalchionis manuscript, a fragment variant discovered in 1423 by Poggio Bracciolini in Cologne and the first accepted as authentic manuscript to contain the principal surviving fragments of Books XIV-XVI, with the extant Satyricon's centerpiece, Book XV, The Dinner of Trimalchio. The manuscript was 'misplaced' in Florence, before it could be published. In one of the few fortunate moments of the Satyricon's long, convoluted history, it was rediscovered, in 1650, in the library of Nicolaus Cippicus in Trogir, Dalmatia by the scholar, Pierre Petit, aka Marino Statileo. First issued without the other fragments (1664), the printing was carelessly executed. For the first time in 1669 all fragments accepted as authentic to that time were published in a corrected text edition with an anthology of the most significant commentary on the work since the beginning of the Renaissance. SIZE: Covers: 199 x 126 mm (7.83 x 4.96 inches) / Pages (with full margins): 189 x 113 mm. JOAN BLAEU I [1596-1673]: Born in Amsterdam, eldest son of Willem Blaeu, he studied law and became a doctor of law, but in the 1630s' he was made a partner in his father's highly successful printing business and upon his father's death in 1638, he became head and greatly expanded it. Although primarily remembered for the family's pre-eminent twelve volumes world atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, under Joan I, the Blaeu printing firm became the largest printing press in Europe, noted for their beautiful typography and engraving work.

Book Description: Traiecti ad Rhenum Utrecht Apud Gulielmum vande Water, 1709. First edition. 2 vols. in 1. 4to., pp. [xl], 688, [iv], 368 [cxvi]. Engraved title page, 14 small engraved illustrations in text, errata leaf at rear, title page in red and black with woodcut printer's device. A little very sporadic foxing, light offsetting to pp.612-13 (vol.1), slight marginal staining pp.255-61 and paper repair to p.261 (both vol. 2) not affecting text, top margin trimmed a little close. Vellum prize binding, spine and boards tooled in gilt, Amsterdam coat of arms in gilt to both boards, remains of green ribbon ties to upper board, edges sprinkled dark brown and red. A little darkened and smudged, two small patched repairs to upper board. Two short anonymous catalogue descriptions pasted to preliminary blank. First Burman edition of Petronius's 1st-century 'Satyricon'. "The main characters are the homosexual pair Encolpius (the narrator) and the younger Giton, who undergo various adventures in a southern Italian setting. They encounter a number of characters, some of whom, such as the unscrupulous adventurer Acyltus and the lecherous poet Eumolpius, try to divide the lovers; Giton is not particularly faithful, and this, like the sexual orientation of the lovers, and many other elements in the novel, constitutes an evident parody of the chaste fidelity of the boy-girl pairings of the ideal Greek novel" (OCD). Burman (1668-1741) of Utrecht and later Leiden, is credited with bringing into vogue the variorum edition (see Sandys II 444-5). Dibdin (4th edn.) II 276; Schweiger II 724-5.

Book Description: Köln (d. i. Amsterdam? Paris?), Pierre Marteau 1694., 1694. Book Condition: 0. VD17 12:626584N, Gay /Lemonnier 3,721. Weller,Druckorte II,55. Kindler 19,8458. NBG 38,168 - vielleicht frühester Druck dieser v. Francois Nodot (erw. 1695-1700), übersetzen u. "ergänzten" zweisprachigen Ausgabe des "Satyricon", erschienen mit dem falschen Druckort Köln u. dem häufig verwendeten fingierten Verlegernamen Marteau. Der erste Band enthält außerdem einen Brief Nodots an die Academie Francaise "Lettre ecrite par M. Nodot a Monsieur Charpentier", die Antwort Charpentiers, sowie die Vita des Petronius. Die Ergänzungen der nur fragmentarisch erhaltenen Satyren des Petronius durch eine, angeblich 1688 von einem französischen Offizier während des österreichischen Feldzuges gegen die Türken in Belgrad entdeckten Handschrift mit Satyricon-Fragmenten, wurden bald als Fälschung verdächtigt. Ungeklärt bleibt, ob Nodot der Fälscher gewesen ist oder selbst irregeführt wurde. N., " auteur qui n’est connu que par des Fragmens de Pétrone " stand in militärischen Diensten, dürfte über einige philologische Kenntnisse verfügt haben u. gab noch einige andere Schriften, auch zu militärischen Themen, heraus. Interessant auch die Provenienzen des schon editionsgeschichtlich bemerkenswerten Exemplars, der Band stammt aus dem Nachlaß v. Charlotte Wolter, verheiratete Gräfin O`Sullivan, gefeierte Heroine des Burgtheaters im 19. Jh., danach gehörte er zur Bibliothek d. Dr. Simon Popper, Vater d. bekannten Philosophen Sir Karl Popper .

Two volumes complete - Volume One - [40], 688pp and Volume Two - [4], 368pp, [116]. Full contemporary calf, raised bands with seven panels, each with a double fillet border, lacking author labels, volume numbers lettered direct, remaining panels with a central gilt device. Leather browned and rubbed, outer joints split with small amount of loss, though holding well on cords, corners bumped, worn and chipped, occasional small amounts of loss to leather, spine ends chipped. Internally quite bright and clean, H4 in volume two is slightly misbound, top-edge is slightly proud. Previous owner's armorial bookplate (Dogmersfield Library) to front pastedown of volume one, bookplate removed from front pastedown of volume two. Engraved frontispiece, title in red and black. Harwood notes that this edition is "one of the best edited of the Dutch quarto classics. Burman by his immense erudition and critical sagacity has so wonderfully illustrated this difficult writer, that it is almost impossible for the best scholar to read Petronius in any other edition" (Harwood pages 191-192). Dibdin prefers the 1743 second edition (Dibdin II: 276). Well produced Variorum edition with notes and commentaries by Heinsii, Goesii, Dousae and Gonsali de Salas. Latin text.

Book Description: Pr. for Sam. Briscoe (colophon: Pr. for George Strahan), London, 1713. Petronius Arbiter (?A.D. 65) was a consul and court official under Nero. Noted for his sybaritic life-style, he committed suicide after being falsely implicated in a plot against the Emperor. His Satyricon, which exists only in fragments (books 14?16) and describes the amoral adventures of two youths in the Greek cities of southern Italy, incorporates a series of amorous adventures and misfortunes that make it a classic of erotic literature, but it is also a humorous critique of the immorality, vulgarity, and corruption of Roman society by one who knew that side of things all too well. The present example is the fourth edition of this English translation done by Thomas Brown and others, with much matter added to the Satyricon: a life of Petronius Arbiter by Charles de Saint-?vremond, English translations of a number of poems by additional Roman poets (mostly rather earthy, vigorous works), a piece by William Cavendish, 1st Duke of Devonshire, inspired by the Archbishop of Cambray's Telemachus, and a verse-form essay on poetry by John Sheffield, 1st Duke of Buckingham. The volume is illustrated with => 11 copper-engraved plates by various hands, which accompany non-erotic portions of the text and depict a wedding, the siege of Troy, a shipwreck, the Ephesian matron removing her husband's corpse, the death of the holy goose, etc. Binding: Contemporary mottled calf panelled with plain calf, framed in blind with blind-tooled corner fleurons, spine with gilt-stamped red morocco title-label, outer edges with gilt roll. Provenance: Front pastedown with bookplate of John Thomas Ambrose (1798?1881), a philanthropist and solicitor in Mistley and Manningtree. 8vo (19.6 cm, 7.75"). [16], x, [6], 111, [3], 111?360, [8] pp.; 11 plts. (lacking add. engr. t.-p.). ESTC T17788; Lowndes 1843; Schweiger, II, 727. Binding as above, rubbed and spine leather cracked; joints strengthened, portion of headband replaced, extremities subtly refurbished with toned long-fiber tissue. Bookplate as above. Varying degrees of age-toning, with a few signatures (only) browned or foxed and some leaves showing sometime exposure to water with no plates affected; additional engraved title-page lacking and index pages bound in incorrectly, interspersed with two poems towards the back of the volume!.

Book Description: Joannem Baptistam Langlois, Parisiis [ Paris ], 1693. 1st edition thus. Contemporary full calf, G+. tp+[xxii]+288pp, engraved frontis, printers device to the title, binding rubbed & worn at the edges, with a little loss at the head of the spine, upper hinge cracked but firm, old library mark in the lower compartment of the spine, text clean & bright, title & frontis a little grubby, a previous owner has partly copied the frontis on the recto of the sheet in pencil, pages yellowed a little, a good copy. A new translation of Petronius' picaresque novel, which had survived in fragmentary form. This edition, edited by Nodot [ 1650 - 1710 ], contains passages which he claimed had been discoverd in Belgrade during the siege of that city in 1688 ( he describes the discovery in the preface ) but were in fact from his own pen. The 'rediscovered' passages here are printed in italics. Nodot himself was soon exposed as the source of the new material but despite this his passages remained in translations for many years before being fully expurgated. The Satyricon, written around 61AD & first printed in 1664, stands alone in classical literature in that it touches on all matters connected with the everyday luxuries, vices & social manners of the Imperial Age in Rome. The characters are most likely based on real people. Trimalchio, the vulgar & ostentatious millionaire of the Satyricon is the literary model for F Scott Fitzgerald's Jay Gatsby - it's original working title was 'Trimalchio's Banquet'. The book contains in chapter 62 an early Werewolf story. Fellini based his film of the same title on the book. Petronius [ 27 - 66 ], Nero's adviser in all matters of luxury and extravagence [ which earned him the title Arbiter Elegantiae ] However Petronius fell foul of his capricious master & was forced to commit suicide. 200 grams.

Book Description: Claude Audinet, Paris: 1677., 1677. 12mo. a12, A-R12, S6. [S6 blank, present]. [20].417,[3]pp 18th c. polished black morocco gilt, spine banded, gilt, headcap lacking, leather cracked in center of spine, a.e.g., marbled endpapers, contemp. marginal line notations; 3 pages of early notes on rear blanks. Engraved extra-t.p. with a multitude of amorous excesses being studied by the author under the light of a heavenly host. Petronius (d. A. D. 65) "according to Tacitus was at one time consul and governor of Bithynia, and subsequently was admitted by Nero to the inner circle of his initiates and chosen by him as his arbiter of taste.Petronius is probably the author of the satirical picaresque Latin novel known as the 'Satyricon,' a compartively small portion of which survives. Like the Menippean Satires it is in prose intersperced with verse, and describes the disreputable adventures of two rogues Encolpius and Ascyltus, and their serving-boy Giton, as they wander about the semi-Greek cities of southern Italy. There are passages of gross indecency, but the spirit of the whole is the hunorous satire of writers such as Rabelais." [OCCL]This edition adds a 'Priapeia' of other classical erotic verse.
