Item Description: Apud Ionannem Bsarilettum, Venetiis, 1568. Hardcover. Book Condition: Gut. 278 Blätter+ 4 Blätter ( "Verba graeca latinis expressa" und "Errata": dieser Teil ist offensichtlich nicht in allen Ausgaben). Kleinoktav. Ledereinband der Zeit mit einer vollständigen Schliesse, die andere ist nur teilweise erhalten. Rückenschild mit Titel (handgeschrieben). Der Einband ist teilweise lädiert. Feste Buchbindung. Innen sehr sauber, keine Papierbräunung. Auf dem Titelblatt ein Stempel und einer Notiz. Titel auf dem Buchschnitt. Antonio Riccoboni (Rovigo 1541-Padua 1599) italinenischer Humanist und Literaturtheoretiker ist der Verfasser unter anderen von Kommentaren zur Ethik, Poetik, Rhetorik des Aristoteles). Er unterichtete Rhetorik in Padua; er wurde auch deren erster Stadtchronist" (vgl. Enciclopedia italiana, Trecani, sub voce). Das hier angebotene Buch vereint eine Abhandlung über die Geschichtsschreibung und die erste Fragmentensammlung der römischen Historiker überhaupt von Cato bis Varro (vor der des Antonio Agustín). Der Essay gehört zum humanistischen Genre der Abhandlungen zur Geschichtsschreibung ( "ars historica"). Bei dem Buch handelt sich um die erste Ausgabe von 1568. Im Jahr 1579 erschien eine letzte Ausgabe in Basel: nach dem Karlsruher Virtuellen Katalog sowie nach Cornell (siehe unten). Die Abhandlung wurde aber separat mit anderen ähnlichen humanistischen Traktaten ebenfalls in Basel 1576 abgedruckt. Die zweite Ausgsabe des hier angebotenen Werkes erlebte in Basel eine zweite und letzte Auflage, in der Riccoboni die Fragmente des Varro ergänzte und die Fragmente von weiteren neuen 22 Historikern hinzufügte. Zur Methode der Fragmentensammlung merken Pobjoy und Rich kritisch an: "Riccoboni supplied some explanatory comments to accompany his fragments but his collection of fragments for his chosen authors was very incomplete, in particular making little use of Greek sources and none of Dionysius of Halicarnassos, and he often merely summarized his sources rahter than quoting them verbatim" (S. 653). Anthony Grafton: "What was history? , Cambridge UP 200/. 81 erwähnt das Buch nicht ohne fehlerhafte Angaben und sagt nichts über diese relativ frühe Reflexion über die Geschichtsschreibung: grossartig! Vgl. zum angebotenem Werk . M. P. Pobjoy /J. W. Rich, in "The Fragments of the Roman Historians", T. J. Cornell (general editor), 3 Bände, Oxford UP. 2013: I 652-653. Vgl. allgemein zum Verfasser Giancarlo Mazzacurati: La crisi dell retorica umanistica nel Seicento (antonio Riccobono), Napoli 1961. Buch. Bookseller Inventory # 003037

Item Description: Sumtibus Jo. Friderici Gleditsch,, Francofurti & Lipsiae (Frankfurt and Leipzig), 1692. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fair. First Edition. Folio paper over boards binding with small illustration & blindstamped design. If not original binding than bound by original owner approx at time of publication. Pagination: [48], 84, 319, [1], 219, [1], 700, [98], [24], [24], [6] p. includes three indices, supplement & errata pages. An on-line source say of this book: ". occasioned by the Jesuit Maimbourg's Histoire du Luthéranisme (Paris, 1680), (Seckendorf's) most important work, and still indispensable to the historian of the Reformation as a rich storehouse of authentic materials." The author is identified as a "statesman and scholar" & at the time of his death (also publication year of this book) was Chancellor of the Univ. of Halle. Condition: fair with text block parting from binding. Front cover is detaching at top & old repairs have been made to upper spine. Front paste down has a beautiful calligraphic ownership, donation, or dedication inscription: "Herr Nicolaus Wilhelm von Seybothen, des Innern: und Herr Johann Philipp Winterbach, des Eusern Raths, beede Reichs Richtere: Anno 1693 (plus looping device). The sense of this old German may be that Seybothen was of the Council of the Interior & that Winterbach was of the Council of the Foreign (Affairs?), and both of them held those positions for the realm. Winterbach was the author of the 1680 book, Notae et observationes theoreticae, canonicae et practicae. I see a hint that Seybothen may have been related by marriage to Seckendorf, but that is a very tenuous deduction. Tiny modern ownership library label on upper corner of front paste down, which is placed over previous ownershp label. Upper front corner of half-title & engraved frontispiece are chipped back 1.5" x 3". First signature loose. Title page has some foxing; frontispiece less so, and very little if any foxing to text. Full illustration on preliminary page shows intriguing fight going on including pope or bishop, angels, Roman soldier, and others, with Christ apparently in the middle. Frontispiece is portrait of Seckendorf. The original 1692 first edition is particularly rare, it seems. Bookseller Inventory # MOR.9.082
