SUMMARY: Boethius (Boetius) Anicius Manlius Severinus was a Roman statesman and philosopher (ca. 480524 CE); son of Flavius Manlius Boetius, after whose death he was looked after by several men, especially Memmius Symmachus. He married Symmachus's daughter, Rusticiana, by whom he had two sons. All three men rose to high honours under Theodoric the Ostrogoth, but Boethius fell from favour, was tried for treason, wrongly condemned, and imprisoned at Ticinum (Pavia), where he wrote his renowned 'The Consolation of Philosophy'. He was put to death in 524, to the great remorse of Theodoric. Boethius was revered as if he were a saint and his bones were removed in 996 to the Church of S. Pietro in Ciel d'Oro, and later to the Cathedral. The tower in Pavia where he was imprisoned is still venerated. Boethius was author of Latin translations of Aristotle, commentaries on various philosophical works, original works on logic, five books on music, and other works. His 'The Consolation of Philosophy' is the last example of purely literary Latin of ancient times a mingling of alternate dialogue and poems. His 'Theological Tractates' are also included in this volume. Sm.8vo. **Extra postage needed.

B001VETN3E 1695 first edition, Printed by J.D. for Awnsham and John Churchill, at the Black Swan in Pater-noster-Row; and Francis Hildyard bookseller in York (London), 5 x 7 3/4 inches tall red buckram cloth hardbound, gilt lettering to spine, engraved portrait frontispiece, xxxii, 246, [1] pp. Slight soiling, rubbing and edgewear to covers. Ex-theology library copy, with call numbers in gilt and white to spine, presentation bookplate to front pastedown, ink accession stamp and perforated name stamp to title page, check-out slip to blank rear free-endpaper and card pocket to rear pastedown as evidence of this. Slight foxing and offset from frontispiece to title page. Otherwise, apart from a bit of creasing, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this scarce first edition of Preston's English translation of Boethius' immortal Consolation of Philosophy. Includes Preface (p. iii-xiv), 'The life of Boetius' (p. xv-xxvii) and 'The testimonies of several writers concerning Boetius translated' (p. xxviii-xxxii). With a final errata leaf. References: Wing (2nd ed., 1994), B3433; Arber's Term cat., II 540; ESTC No. R3694. ~V~ First edition of one of the best early modern English translations, by Richard Graham, First Viscount Preston (1648-1695), an English diplomat and politician who sat in the House of Commons in two periods between 1675 and 1689. He became a Jacobite conspirator, but his reputation in the Jacobite community suffered when he gave evidence against his co-conspirators in exchange for a pardon. His translation was first published after his death at London in 1695, and is remarkable for the allusions with which the preface is filled. In figurative language Preston complained that his judges had been more lenient than the friends who had sneered at him for giving way under trials which they had never undergone - all of which carries a certain level of irony, given the work under translation. The author of The Consolation, Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius (circa 480-524/525 AD), was a scholar and philosopher born in Rome to an ancient and prominent family which included emperors and many consuls. His father, Flavius Manlius Boethius, was consul in 487 after Odoacer deposed the last Western Roman Emperor. Boethius entered public life at a young age, was a senator by the age of 25 and became a leading counselor to Ostrogothic king Theoderic, who ruled Italy from 493 to 526. In 523, at the height of his influence, Boethius was accused by fellow-senators of plotting against the king, imprisoned in Pavia and executed in 524. While jailed, Boethius composed this, his De Consolatione Philosophiae, in which he sought through philosophy to come to terms with the vicissitudes of fortune and the apparent triumph of evil. Written in Latin prose interspersed with more lyrical passages in verse, it takes the form of a dialogue between Boethius and philosophy, personified as a woman. It became one of the most popular and influential works of the Middle Ages. Several manuscripts survived and these were widely edited, translated and printed throughout the late 15th century and later in Europe. Seller Inventory # V-1061-6650

About this Item: London: Printed by J.D. for Awnsham and John ChurchillÉ[et al.], 1695., 1695. BoethiusÕ De Consolatione Philosophiae, which was written in prison shortly before the authorÕs death in 525 A.D. was long considered the last great classic work of ancient literature. It was one of the most popular literary works of the Middle Ages and was translated into many languages. Preston justifies this fourth English translation on the grounds that two seventeenth-century predecessors were too incomplete and imperfect, and that Geoffrey ChaucerÕs early translationÑitself an imitation of Alfred the GreatÕs Anglo-Saxon versionÑwas to incomprehensible to late seventeenth-century readers. Preston intended his translation to bring BoethiusÕ treatise on worldly suffering and the goodness of God within the understanding of ordinary people. He therefore compressed and minimized his notes so not to distract from the text. A life of Boethius and translations into English of early comments about him by Greek and Latin authors are prefixed to the text. Octavo. xxxii, 246, [1] pp., including the errata leaf. Engraved frontisportrait. Contemporary calf, rebacked, with gilt black morocco spine labels, gilt coat-or-arms on front cover Some browning to portrait, and small chip at fore-margin, last few leaves with uneven brown spotting, one leaf with chip at fore-margin, not affecting text.

Ejemplar algo corto de márgenes. Ligera señal de óxido. Marcas de anterior poseedor. * Primera edición moderna de la obra más conocida de Boecio (480-525), que tuvo un importante impacto en la teología medieval, a pesar de que no se trata propiamente de una obra teológica sino filosófica. Y es que el autor respondía a cuestiones religiosas sin hacer referencia explícia al Cristianismo y basándose únicamente en la filosofía natural y la tradición griega clásica. Para él, seguro de la armonía entre fe y razón, las verdades derivadas del Cristianismo no debían diferir en exceso de las proporcionadas por la filosofía. La Consolación se plantea como un diálogo entre el propio Boecio y la Filosofía, con quien discute acerca de la naturaleza transitoria de la fama y la riqueza y la superioridad del alma, en la que se halla la verdadera felicidad. La virtud personal es todo lo que el hombre posee, pues no está sometida a los riesgos y vicisitudes de la fortuna. En la obra, el filósofo trata temas como la naturaleza del libre albedrío en contraposición al determinismo, la predestinación, el porqué del triunfo de los malvados y la ruina de los hombres buenos, la virtud, la justicia y la naturaleza humana. boecio, filosofía clásica, filosofía natural.

Numerous woodcut initials and woodcut printer's devise to title-page and verso of last, otherwise blank, leaf. (16), 394 pp. Second work: First few leaves evenly browned, and some general brownspotting. A few leaves lacking very small parts of lower marging, far from effecting text of leaf-signatures. woodcut printer's device to title-page, woodcut initial. (24), 287, (1) pp. First editions, both published in the same year, of two highly esteemed commented editions of Boethius' seminal "The Consolation of Philosophy", which together make up an important contribution to Boethius-scholarship and the understanding of this most central text of both Antiquity, Christianity, and the Middle Ages. In fact, the collection of the two present editions, collected and bound at the time of their appearance, almost constitute a singular pre-edition of the famous and important so-called "Variorum Boethius", which appeared more than 60 years later, in 1671, and unites the commentaries and notes of Bernartius and Sitzmann. The 1671 edition, which was printed in Leiden, became very popular. According to Dibdin, "The first edition is a very good one, and is emphatically styled, "the Variorum Boethius.". The notes, chiefly by Sitzmanus and Bernartius, are numerous and pertinent." (II:352-53).The beautiful and elegant Plantin-edition constitutes one of the most important commented editions of Boethius' work. It is renowned for Bernartius' excellent and extensive commentaries and the correctness of the text.The Marnius-edition is of great value due to the learned commentaries and notes by Sitzmann, which include an apparatus of classical and post-classical sources.It is of great interest to see the two works collected in this manner, many decades before the commentaries by the two renowned scholars were collected officially and printed together. Apart from the difference in notes and commentaries, the two works complement each other in other respects as well, contributing to the value of having them together. For instance, the Plantin-edition contains Julianus Martianus Rota's "Life of Boethius", whereas the Marnius-edition contains Theodore Peolman's foudational study on Boethian metre and verse.As such, the present book unites two works of the most excellent complimentary value, greatly contributing to the understanding of one of the most important, influential, widely discussed and studied works of Antiquity and the Middle Ages. As a philosopher Boethius (480 - ca. 525) stands tall in the middle between Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Time-wise he clearly belongs to late Antiquity, but he is a Christian and he writes in Latin. Still being a Christian, he also comes to represent the actual centre of a tradition that goes directly back to Plotinus and thereby indirectly back to Plato and Aristotle. Boethius was imprisoned and later executed, accused of treason against the gothic regime as well as of sorcery, though he himself claims that it was caused by his political activity, where he as a court official defended the weak; caused by his uprightness, his enemies were too many. The most plausible explanation is that Theoderic doubted the loyalty of the Roman aristocracy and thereby especially the frank Boethius. While in prison, Boethius wrote this his main work, which is without a doubt the most widely read, commented and influential of his works. The work is atypical for the time and is written as a philosophical conversation between Boethius himself and the goddess of Philosophy. Though always a Christian, in this work he is first and fo.

Nach den vier in Venedig gedruckten Werkausgaben von 1491/1492, 1497/1499, 1523 und 1536 ist dies die insgesamt fünfte und erste nördlich der Alpen gedruckte Gesamtausgabe. Ihren besonderen Wert erhält sie durch neue und erstmals als Quelle herangezogene Handschriften, die der im glarnerischen Mollis geborene und im katholisch gebliebenen Freiburg im Breisgau als Universitätsprofessor lehrende Heinrich Loriti benutzte. In Basel selbst wurden Glareans Interessen als Herausgeber von Sebastian Münster wahrgenommen. Ihn erwähnt der Herausgeber in seinem an den kaiserlichen Rat und reichen Augsburger Kaufmann Anton Fugger gerichteten Vorwort. Glarean verweist auch auf die durch den Basler Drucker Johann Walder begonnene, durch dessen Tod 1541 aber nicht vollendete, Edition von Boethius' Texten, auf die offenbar Henric Petri zurückgreifen konnte. - Glarean bearbeitete die De institutione arithmetica (S. 1295-1370) und die De institutione musica (S. 1371-1481) auf Grund der neuen Handschriften, wobei Glareans editorische Anmerkungen im Rand kursiv gedruckt wurden. Nebst dem philologisch korrigierten Text enthält die Ausgabe gegenüber den vorausgegangenen venezianischen auch Ergänzungen. Während die Giunta Ausgaben von 1523 und 1536 nur die Texte der Ausgabe von 1497/1499 wiederholten, enthält dieser Basler Druck auch Giulio Marziano Rotas und Jacques Lefèvre d'Etaples' Uebersetzungen der „Analytica priora" und „Analytica posteriora", der „Topica" und „Sophistici elenchi" des Aristoteles. «The Petri print thus embraces not only one of Boethius' modern advocates but also one of Glarean's most influential contacts during his stay in Paris between 1517 and 1522» (Inga Mai Groote). Auf S. 965-967 findet sich auch das nicht von Boethius stammende Traktat „De unitate et uno", das tatsächlich der im 12. Jhdt. in Segovia u.a. als Avicenna-Uebersetzer wirkende Dominicus Gundisalvi aus diversen arabischen Quellen zusammen kompilierte. - (Kleiner Fleck auf Schnitt. Eintrag von alter Hand auf Vorsatz und Titelblatt. Ab Seite 1227 mit winzigem Randausriss). - Sonst sehr schönes Exemplar dieser meisterlich gedruckten und seltenen Gesamtausgabe, die 1570 erneut aufgelegt wurde. - Page 739/740 is missing. - Excellent copy of Heinrich Glarean's and Sebastian Münster's edition of the works of the last great philosopher of Roman antiquity. - After the four venetian editions published in 1491/1492, 1497/1499, 1523 and 1536 this is in all the fifht and first edition being printed north of the Alps. The Swiss humanist, musical scholar and professor of theology at the university of Freiburg i. Br. based his editorial work on three new manuscripts. His explanations are printed in italics in the margins. While he stayed at Freiburg (which remained a centre of Catholicism on the Upper Rhine) his interests as editor were safeguarded by Sebastian Münster in Basel. - „Apart from estab.
