The original Greek manuscripts were brought from Constantinople to Italy by Giovanni Aurispa in the early 15th century and translated into Latin by Theodore Gaza around 1450. The editio princeps of the Greek came out only in 1497, but Gaza's translation, edited by Giorgio Merula, was first published in 1483. Gaza, scholar, scribe and teacher from Thessaloniki, translated many works of Greek science, literature and theology into Latin. He was renowned for the style and accuracy of his translations. Contains the 3rd Latin (1st Aldine) edition of Theophrastus' work on systematic botany which was first published in Latin translation in 1483. "An observer and collector of botanical data rather than a profound theorizer, Theophrastus was handicapped by lack of scientific language. Yet his description of the formation of the plant in the seed, the earliest account known, was the best made for 2000 years; it demonstrated excellent observation" (Dibner). This edition additionally contains Latin-Greek and Greek-Latin glossaries of technical terms found in Aristotle. The first edition is quite rare on the market. OCLC lists only 4 copies in US public libraries. Bookseller Inventory # 002037

Bound in later cloth backed boards, some marginal waterstaining, contemporary Italian marginalia (some trimmed close) throughout with a full page of contemporary notes on the verso of the final leaf. HC 15491; BMC VI 894; BM-Ital 668; Klebs 958.1; Garrison (1929) 12; Castiglioni (1947) 181-182; Stillwell T132; Goff T-155; Pritzel 9184;Osler 263; Stillwell, The Awakening . 72; Procter 648; Dibner, Heralds of Science, 18; Norman 266. Rare, this had not been to auction since December of 1967 (when it sold for $75,000), until it sold for $55,200 at the Haskell Norman sale (3/18/1998). Stillwell notes that this is the earliest scientific botany. A study of about 5 plants described according to a rather primitive classification which held, however, until the midsixteenth century. Its ninth section, on the medicinal properties of plants"the earliest extant herbal, except for fragments of a Greek herbal, c. 35 B.C."is believed to have been added somewhat after Theophrastos's time. Known as the founder of scientific botany, Theophrastos was born in Lesbos and was Aristotle's most highly regarded student and succeeded Aristotle as head of the Lyceum in Athens. He was a prolific writer, yet only these two works survive as major works. His De Historia Plantarum described and classifies several hundred plants while the De Causis Plantarum is a work of etiology: exploring a number of topics including generation, seeds, and the effects of cultivation on wild species. The Historia divides plants into four main divisions: trees, shrubs, undershrubs and herbs. The translation is by Theodoros Gaza, a Greek who became a leading figure in the Italian Renaissance. This translation was commissioned by Pope Nicholas V (1448-1455), a patron of scholars who wished to set up a library that included Greek texts in Latin. First edition, in Latin (later issued in Greek with the Aldine Aristotle editions of 1497 and 1498). Bookseller Inventory # 16243
