About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Dialogo di M. Iacomo Cabriele . . . by GABRIELE, Giacomo.

Description:

4to 62, [1] leaves, including errata. Wonderful woodcut printer’s device depicting a gryphon holding a stone chained to a globe in its claw, woodcut historiated initials. Later vellum; an excellent copy. First and only edition of this rare treatise written in the form of a dialogue between a group of some of the most prominent humanists and philosophers in the Italian Renaissance. Tryphon Gabriel (1470-1549), known as the Venetian Socrates, here identifies astrology as the most noble and true science. Holding an armillary sphere, he explains his theories, stating that "the doctrines are so clear that all we need is to use our eyes and through direct observation we can understand everything" (p. 13). The Earth is spherical, in the center of a spherical universe composed of rotating stars and planets with circular orbits. His eclectic perspective occupies the boundary between the philosophies of Plato and Aristotle, though remained firmly outside the contemporary views of academicians.This work is surprising as Tryphon is practically unknown for his interest in the sciences. He is, however, well known for collaborating with his dearest friend Pietro Bembo (1470-1547), the Italian Renaissance cardinal, to whom the book is dedicated. The two worked closely together in the codification of the Italian language. Further, the work is of particular interest inasmuch as Tryphon did not publish any of his own writings during his lifetime. That was left to Giacomo Gabriele (1510-1550), Tryphon’s nephew and heir. Giacomo here has created the critical edition of his uncle’s work on astronomy, astrology, theology and philosophy. It is a timely publication, discussing the validity of early theories of astrology in light of Renaissance approaches to science, especially given the recently published De revolutionibus by Copernicus. Tryphon is considered the model of the fifteenth century humanist, whose rare qualities make him an example of intellectual and moral authority, not yet contaminated by the incipient culture of the court. He refused all public offices he was offered, surrounded himself with the many intellectuals attracted by his wide culture. Ludovico Ariosto remembered him in Orlando Furioso as one of his dearest friends. The painting Giovanni Borgherini and his tutor attributed to Italian Renaissance painter Giorgione (National Gallery of Art in Washington DC) depicts Tryphon Gabriele as the tutor. The subject of the painting is confirmed in the book Della Repubblica de’Viniziani by Donato Giannotti (1540), set as a dialogue between Gabriele and Borgherini at Pietro Bembo’s house.
