Historiae Juris Romano-Justinianei Volumen secundum, Cujus Pars: Hoffammani [Hoffmann], Christ.

About this Item: Apus Haeredes Joh. Grossi, Lipsiae [Leipzig], 1726. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. 208 pages plus index (complete). In Latin throughout. Fully covered in parchment. Cloth paper. A VERY RARE and MOST pleasing copy of this history of Roman Law from the busy jurist, Christian Hoffmann. Especially taking the book's age into account, this book is wonderful to hold, read, and to turn the pages. The boards have wear, scuffing and marks. They are benevolent, venerable. They are steady and sound. There is some wear to the spine seams, but the book's security and facility are unaffected. The contents are in excellent condition. There are, of course, age related marks, areas of tanning and foxing. In general, and by far, the contents are healthy, tidy, well maintained and preserved. The chapter, "Fragmenta Edicti Perpetui in Corpore Juris Romano-Justinianei Dispersa, ad mentem vir. clariss. G Vil. Ranchini, Jac. Gothofredi, Gerardi Noodtii aliorumque Collecta Atque Emendata", have antique ink annotations that add considerably to the character of the book. The pages are clear, very assured and certain, confident and delectably ancient. fk. Seller Inventory # cgdb

About this Item: Lutetiae Parisiorum. : Ex officina Roberti Stephani, 1544. First Edition. Very good copy in later, early 20th century binding of full aniline calf over bevelled boards. Gilt-blocked title. Raised bands with blind-tooled double cross-bands. Slightest suggestion only of dust-dulling to the spine bands and panel edges, with some very light surface marks and stains, mainly to back panel. Marginal shadow staining evident to leaves of final register (pp.130-185). Remains particularly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong. Lacks title and prelims - commences at p.1. - and final leaves which included a woodcut emblem. Scans, images etc. and additional bibliographical material available on request. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Description: 116, [1 blank], 117 - 353, 1 - 181 [182 - 185]p. , with register and colophon on verso of last leaf of text ; 34cm. Text printed entirely in Greek, notable for being the first use of Claude Garamond's font. Printed in Claude Garamond's "Grec du roi" type (second size) with decorations and initials designed by Geoffroy Tory. Summary: Eusebius of Caesarea (c. 263-339) wrote the first and most complete history of the Christian church, completed in 324 or 325. Its historical significance, both for Christianity and the western world, derives from the uniqueness of his material. In many instances, our knowledge of important religious and historical figures comes from the pages of this seminal title. Subjects: Church history - Primitive and early church, ca. 30-600 - Sources.

Historiae naturalis e quadrupeditus libri [I], de: Jonston, J.

About this Item: Frankfurt am Main, Matthias Merian, 1650-1653. Six parts in four. Folio (32.6 x 19.6 cm) with 249 engraved plates and six engraved title pages (four resembling frontispieces, engraved by Matthias Merian). Part I (no date, but 1650) 232 [iv] pp., 80 plates; Part III (AND) Part II (1653) 200, [vii]; 40, [iii] pp., 40 [28, 12] plates; Part V (no date, but 1650) (AND) part IV (1650) 228; 78; [xii] pp., 67 [47, 20] plates; Part VI (1650). 227, [vii] pp. 62 plates. Contemporary uniform full mottled calf. Spines with six raised bands, compartments with rich gilt floral patterns and two green morocco labels with gilt titles. = A nice set in the rare first edition of Jonston's famous "Historiae naturalis" depicting all then "known" animals including insects, snakes, "dragons", shells, birds, etc. This is the Frankfurt edition, which is much rarer than the second edition that was printed in Amsterdam (1657). With the fine plates of such animals as an elephant with its driver, famous different horses, a stranded sperm whale, but also the more dramatic "draco's" depicted after "aldro" (Aldrovandus) and the Hydra with seven heads. Most plates are quite accurate and the animals depicted are easily identifiable to the species level. Some, however, are rather vague; perhaps composites or entirely mythological. The "serpentibus" is bound after the "insectibus", the "exanvibus aqvaticis" after the "piscibus" (as usual). The part on snakes and dragons, and the one on molluscs, have a "regular" title page with a large vignette; all the others have a frontispiece-like title page, with the title as part of the engraving. Several plates bound out of sequence. A few pates with old paper repairs. The combined index to volumes IV and V much toned. Several text pages browned, the plates usually in much better condition. Rear endpapers of volumes II, IV, V, and VI with ink annotations in an old hand. A few plate figures, and several text page margins also with additional captions in an old hand. Provenance: "Prof Rey" handwritten on a few front pastedowns and title page margins. Very few complete copies of the first edition ever came to auction and the portrait is often lacking, as in this set. In all, a nicely bound, uniform set printed on rather thin paper (as usual) with age-toning, especially in the text and margins, and other minor defects being the result of over 350 years of use, but most engravings cleaner, with a strong impression and overall a good to very good set. Dean III, pp. 264-265; Nissen IVB, 482; Nissen ZBI, 2131-2135. Seller Inventory # 62236

[With:] Historiae Animalium Liber II. Qui est de Quadrupedibus Oviparis Frankfurt, H. Laurentius, 1617. pp. (6, 2 blank), 119, with woodcut on title and 19 woodcuts. Contemporary vellum, contemporary manuscript title on spine. A set of the complete 'Icones Animalium', which comprises the complete series of woodcuts from Gesner's 'Historia Animalium' (1551-1558), along with some that appear in this edition for the first time. This was the greatest zoological encyclopaedia of the sixteenth century and the greatest pictorial assembly of zoological illustration of its time. The illustrations are the first original zoological illustrations and the first naturalistic representations of animals to be published. As such they herald the birth of zoological book illustration. They are the archetypes of much subsequent animal illustrations, even into the eighteenth century. The woodcuts were cut after paintings by Lukas Schan, some of which survive as part of the Felix Patter collection in the Basle University Library.The 'Icones' utilizes the entire assembly of woodcuts, but largely eliminates the text, apart from the nomenclature.I. The 'Historia animalium de quadrupedium viviparis' dealing with mammals, was the first part of the zoological encyclopaedia on mammals. The present 'Icones Animalium Quadrupedum et Oviparum' incorporates the separately published 'Historia animalium liber II. De quadrupedibus oviparis' and is the 3rd edition.II. The 'Historia animalium de avium' woodcuts are the second important suite of ornithological iconography, being roughly contemporary with those of Belon published the same year. They are the precursors of many of Aldrovandi's illustrations, many of which were copied from Gesner. The present 'Icones Avium' is the 3rd edition.III. The 'Historia animalium de piscium & aquatilium' was Gesner's history of fish and aquatic animals. The woodcuts form the fourth great series of ichthyological illustrations, after Belon (1551), Rondelet (1554) and Salviani (1554), but are also the first general series of marine illustrations (including conchology), not confined to fish. The present 'Nomenclator Aquatilium Animantium. Icones animalium aquatilium' is the 1st edition.IV. The 'Historiae Animalium Liber II. Qui est de Quadrupedibus Oviparis' is not part of the 'Icones' but the second volume of his 'Historia Animalium' on amphibia and the 3rd edition. It is incorporated in 'Icones Animalium Quadrupedum et Oviparum' see no. I.'The title pages . bear subtitles in Italian, French and German, probably because they were aimed at a larger market and at people who could no longer read Latin. These are the only title pages of Gesner's original works with text in vernacular languages. The illustrations themselves also carry captions in all four languages' (Wellisch, Conrad Gessner. A Bio-Biography p 69).An attractively bound set. First few leaves with marginal brown spot.
