Aur. Theodosii Macrobi v.cl. & inlustris Opera.: MACROBIUS.

Item Description: Leiden, Ex Officina Plantiniana, Apud Franciscum Raphelengium, 1597., 1597. 8vo. (XVI),697,(55) p. Limp overlapping vellum. 17 cm (Ref: Schweiger 2,587: 'Eine englische Handschrift ist für die Verbesserung des Textes benutzt'; Ebert 12718: 'the notes are valuable'; Graesse 4,330) (Details: Printer's mark on the title: a pair of compasses, motto 'labore et sapientia') (Condition: Vellum soiled and wrinkled. A small piece of vellum has gone at the head of the spine. New leaf pasted on the front pastedown. Paper yellowing. Edges of the title slightly thumbed. Upper margin of the first gathering slightly & faintly waterstained. Small wormhole near the blank lower edge expertly & allmost invisibly repaired. Pencil numbers in the margin of liber 5 of the Saturnalia) (Note: Ambrosius Theodosius Macrobius, a Roman senator and a classical scholar of the early 5th century A.D. 'was a notable link between the cultures of antiquity and the Middle Ages'. He left us 3 works, the 'Saturnalia', his 'Commentarii in Somnium Scipionis', the 'Dream of Scipio', a commentary on a part of 'De Republica' of the Roman orator Cicero, and a work on grammar 'De differentiis et societatibus Graeci Latinique verbi'. The Saturnalia are a learned compilation in 7 books cast in dialogue form, in which the cultural life of the former generations is idealized. Macrobius' aim is to provide his son with all the necessary, but hard to come by scientific knowledge. He did so in the form of a banquet. Macrobius was inspired by the Ciceronian dialogues 'De Oratore' and 'De Republica'. 'Set during the Saturnalia of 383 A.D. it gathers several (conspicuously non-Christian) members of the aristocracy and their entourage to discuss matters ridiculous (.) and sublime, (.) above all the poetry of Virgil. Quarried from mostly unnamed sources - including Gellius, Seneca, Plutarch, and the tradition of scholastic commentary today known from Servius, the discussion presents Virgil as the master of all human knowledge'. More influential in the Middle Ages and Renaissance was the commentary of Macrobius on the 'Somnium Scipionis'. Macrobius uses Cicero's text (De Republica 6,10 ff) as the starting point for 'a thoroughly Neoplatonic treatment of (especially) cosmology and the soul's ascent to the One, with direct debts to Porphyry and Plotinus.' Discussed are matters of mathematics, physics, cosmology, astronomy, geography, ethics. The third work is often left out in other editions of the Opera of Macrobius. It consists in fact of summaries found in several manuscripts from 'De differentiis'. It deals with the differences and the similarities of the Greek and Latin verb. Macrobius' categories of differences were later used and expanded by Isidorus of Sevilla. With this 3 works Macrobius forged a kind of compendium of science and philosophy, which transmitted classical knowledge to the medieval world, and which was to hold a central position in the intellectual development of the West during the Middle Ages. His books belong to the basic sources of the scholastic movement and of medieval science. His work left traces in the works of Dante, Chaucer, Vives and Spenser. (Source for M. and the quotations: 'The Classical Tradition', Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 553). The influence and popularity of Macrobius dwindled soon during the Renaissance. Schweiger records untill 1600 19 editions, and after 1600 till 1824 only 9 editions. The editor of this edition, the Dutch classical scholar and mathematician, Johannes Isaaczoon, better known as Johannes Isaac Pontanus, 1571-1639, was born at sea (hence his name), when his parents were on their way to Denmark. There he was for some time a helper of Tycho Brahe (NNBW I,1417, & ADB 26, 413/14). In a short 'Lector, amice' on the very last page Pontanus tells the reader that he has used the Stephanus edition of 1585, and an old Bologna edition of 1501. (The first one is according to Schweiger based on the edition of Camerarius of 1535, and the last one we could not trace in Schweiger, nor in KVK. There exists however a Macrobi.

Item Description: Lutetiae, apud Mamertum Patissonium Typographum Regium. In Officina Roberti Stephani, 1586. RARISSIMA PRIMA EDIZIONE PARIGINA, pubblicata sotto pseudonimo, di questo opuscolo satirico di Giuseppe Giusto Scaligero su Loci Controversi del letterato e filologo sansepolcrese Roberto Tito del 1583.Scalé gero, Giuseppe Giusto (fr. Joseph-Juste Scaliger). - Filologo francese d'origine italiana (Agen 1540 - Leida 1609), figlio di Giulio Cesare. Eccelse nello studio dell'antichité per la perfetta padronanza del latino e del greco cui uné anche la conoscenza dell'arabo e dell'ebraico. Dopo la notte di s. Bartolomeo, S., calvinista dal 1562, si rifugié a Ginevra e vi ebbe una cattedra (1572-74); nel 1593 successe a Giusto Lipsio nell'univ. di Leida, dove ebbe a scolari D. Heinsius, F. Dousa, U. Grozio. In qualunque testo classico egli mise mano, lascié la sua impronta: Varrone, Festo, Appendix Vergiliana, Ausonio, gli elegiaci, Teocrito, Bione, Mosco, Manilio. L'edizione di quest'ultimo lo porté ad affrontare problemi astrologici, astronomici, cronologici, donde il De emendatione temporum (1583), che pone su nuove basi l'antica geniale ricostruzione del Chronicon di Eusebio, e il Thesaurus temporum (1606); a lui si deve l'introduzione del periodo giuliano in cronologia. Sua é l'idea di un'ampia raccolta di epigrafi latine.Sembra che questo suo satirico pamphlet, criticando pungentemente la filologia di Roberto Tito, venne accolto con entusiasmo da molti scolastici e che miné la credibilité dell' avversario contro il quale era rivolto. 16°, cm 16,2 prima edizione; testo in latino con alcuni lemmi e frasi in greco; frontespizio con marca tipografica e alcuni finali incisi; alcune medaglie incise n.t.; errore di numerazione: pag. 83 ripetuta pagg.

Item Description: London printed by Adam Islip In aedibus Thomae Wight Cum privilegio Regiae Maiestatis, 1604. Small 8vo, ff. [x], 116, [17] tabula; bound in contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered in ink. (Library stamps of Minnesota State Library on half title, title and f. 25, but relatively faintly done.) Second edition: first published many years before, in about 1554 (STC 11905) in an edition by William Stanford; this edition has a new preface by the printer, pointing out the similarities between this book and Regiam Maiestatem, a treatise on Scottish law: no doubt in the wake of the accession of James VI to the English throne, there was political and legal will to demonstrate the congruence of the two kingdoms. The writer of the preface - presumably Wight rather than Islip - draws attention to the tables, designed to make comparisons between the two texts easier.This copy belonged to Richard Farmer (1735-97), scholar and book collector, and has his signature on the half title. Farmer is principally known as the author of An Essay on the learning of Shakespeare (1767), and this is just the sort of book which could be expected to interest him. STC 11906. This and the earlier edition are the only two STC editions of this important text. Bookseller Inventory # 15270

Metamorphoseos, siue lusus Asini libri XI. Floridorû: Apuleius

Item Description: Aldus / Andreas Torresanus, Venedig, 1521. Hardcover. Book Condition: Gut. Octavo, 158 x 91 mm 266 (recte 264), [28] Blätter; Lagenkollation: a-z: 8, A-I: 8; 1-3: 8, 4: 4. Handgefertigter, blind- und schwarzgeprägter dunkelroter Maroquinband des 20. Jh. (164 x 100 x 51 mm) auf drei Doppelbünden, handgestochene Kapitale in gelber und ockerfarbener Seide, Spiegel aus Marmorpapier, fliegende Vorsätze aus handgeschöpftem Bütten. Sprache: Latein, (Erste Lage leicht wasserrandig oder fleckig, bzw. fingerfleckig, sonst nur minimal fleckig; in der zweiten Hälfte ein kleiner, fast unmerklicher Wurmgang im unteren weißen Rand innen. Wenige Anstr. und Marginalien von alter Hand. Verblasster Besitzeintrag). Editio princeps des Alcinous-Textes. Apuleius wurde um 125 zu Madaura in Nordafrika geboren, nach Studium der Rhetorik und Philosophie in Karthago und Athen - er beherrschte sowohl die punische wie die lateinische und griechische Sprache - war er als Anwalt und Rhetor in Rom tätig, dann in seiner Heimat als Provinzialpriester des Kaiserkults und Wanderredner. Auf Reisen durch Griechenland und Asien ließ er sich in die Mysterien einweihen. Seine um 170 verfaßten und immer noch mit Vergnügen lesbaren "Metamorphosen", eine Bearbeitung der Verwandlungen des Lukios von Patrai, sind der erste vollständig überlieferte antike Roman und, wie Merkelbach in "Roman und Mysterium in der Antike" schreibt, selbst ein Mysterientext. In ihm wird neben einer Fülle von Abenteuern das berühmte Märchen von Amor und Psyche erzählt; den Abschluß bildet eine Verherrlichung der Mysterien der Isis und des Osiris. In der Apologie verteidigt er sich im Zusammenhang mit seiner Heirat gegen den Vorwurf der Zauberei. Seine philosophischen Schriften stehen in der Tradition des Platonismus, so berührt sich "De Deo Sokratis", worin eine Dämonenlehre enthalten ist, inhaltlich mit Plutarchs Schrift zu diesem Thema. Insgesamt zeigt sein Stil Raffinement wie Anschaulichkeit. Der "Asclepius", eine für den Neuplatonismus der Renaissance grundlegende hermetische Schrift, ist uns, bis auf griechische Fragmente bei z.B. Laktanz und eine erst im 20. Jh. entdeckte koptische Fassung, nur in der vorliegenden lateinischen Übertragung überliefert, die hier noch Apuleius zugeschrieben wird, sicherlich aber, da von Augustinus in "De civitate Dei" zitiert, vor 400 n.d.Z. entstanden sein muß. Alcinous (Alcinoos, Alkinoos, Albinus), ein Platoniker des zweiten Jahrhunderts n.u.Z., war Schüler des Gaius und Lehrer Galens; seine Einführung in die platonische Philosophie, die in einem Manuskript unter dem in der Aldine angeführten Verfassernamen überliefert ist, vermischt platonisches Gedankengut mit der Logik und Noetik des Aristoteles, und fügt Neuplatonisches hinzu; vgl. Sandys I,328. Der Alcinous-Text ist gesetzt in der schönen vierten griechischen Aldus-Type; cf. Nicolas Barker, Aldus Manutius and the Development of Greek Script & Type in the Fifteenth Century, p. 59 sqq. & ill. 25-27. - Wasserzeichen: Gegenmarke "A"; keines. Auf dem Titel das Holzschnitt-Signet 3; auf dem letzten Blatt verso das Holzschnitt-Signet 6. Editio princeps of Alcinous. Modern blindstamped morocco, three raised bands. First quire slightly dampstained in margins, some old annotations or unterlining, otherwise a fine crisp copy. The most important work of the great Platonist, Apuleius of Madura, second century e.v., the 'Metamorphoses' is the only surviving example of a Latin novel with the exception of the 'Satyricon' of Petronius. Bound with is a summary of Platonic philosophy by Albinus or Alcinous, second century e.v., a pupil of Gaius and a teacher of Galen. The work contains an amalgam of Platonism with Peripathetic and Stoic elements; specifically Neoplatonis doctrines are merely hinted at. With preface of Asulanus to Francesco Rubrio, French legate of Francis I at Venice. The publisher comments upon the quality of the edition and the teaching of Platonism at the universities of Turin and Padua and at Venice.

Item Description: Venice: the heirs of Ottaviano Scoto & C., 1530, 1530. Folio (293 x 208 mm). Nineteenth-century calf, spine gilt in compartments, dark red morocco label, sides with wide flower-spray border in blind, Prado Almaço watermarked endpapers, red edges. Boards slightly bowed, a few trivial marks, an excellent copy. Woodcut publisher's device to title and at end of text, woodcut illustration at head of index, woodcut initials, typographical diagram on d6v, printed sidenotes, text in double column. A scarce and attractive Venetian edition of Thomas Aquinas's commentary on Aristotle's De generatione et corruption, which was written in Naples in 1272 or 1273, during the last months of Thomas's activity. It is unfinished, ending at the fifth chapter of Book I, and was first printed at Pavia in 1488. The translation of Aristotle is by the Venetian humanist and classical scholar Pietro Alcionio, or Petrus Alcyonius (c.1487–1527). The woodcut at the head of the index depicts Thomas preaching to a seated audience, including the king of France, and Averroes (Ibn Rushd) on the floor among a group of scattered books (i.e. Thomas shown superseding Averroes as the great Aristotelian commentator). USTC locates eight copies in Italy and one in France; the edition is very scarce outside Italy, with no copy in Copac, OCLC, or available auction records. Bookseller Inventory # 119795

Item Description: Francofurti ad Moenum: ex Officina Wolfgangi Richteri, sumptibus Iohan. Theodori & Iohan. Israel de Bry fratribus, 1604. In-4 (29 cm) 2 opere pubblicate insieme (8) 127 (1), (2) XXVI c. Bell'incisione con veduta di navi che veleggiano affiancata da una veduta per parte con l'immagine di un nativo, tutte in cornice architettonica, al primo frontespizio. Numerosi capilettera testatine e finalini. Al secondo frontespizio marca editoriale e una veduta per ogni carta, 26 vedute totali. Piena pergamena coeva. Piccolo foro da tarlo al piatto posteriore e all'ultima carta bianca. Poche pagine arrossate. Prima edizione. L'opera fu scritta da Pieter de Marees e pubblicata ad Amsterdam nel 1602. Gotthard Arthus la tradusse, apportandovi delle variazioni. Pieter de Marees è stato un commerciante o esploratore olandese che è noto per aver scritto un'estesa relazione sul suo viaggio alla Gold Coast nel 1602. Questa è stata la prima descrizione approfondita di questa parte dell'Africa nella lingua olandese. E'stato tradotto in tedesco, inglese e latino e rimane il documento più importante sulla Gold Coast fino dopo l'opera di Willem Bosman sulla descrizione di Guinese Goud-Tanden Slavekust pubblicata nel 1703.heodor de Bry (Liegi, 1528 – Francoforte sul Meno, 27 marzo 1598) è stato un editore e tipografo belga che ha operato in Germania. Il suo primo maestro è stato molto probabilmente il padre, l'orafo Thiry de Bry "il giovane". Non sembra risponda a verità l'affermazione che si sia rifugiato a Strasburgo per motivi religiosi dopo essere stato bandito dalla città e condannato alla confisca dei beni per aver aderito alla Riforma protestante: si era infatti stabilito a Strasburgo già nel 1560, prima di questo bando. Strasburgo era allora una città prospera, che aveva accettato il Protestantesimo ed era divenuta un importante centro artistico per aver accolto, fra i profughi immigrati per motivi religiosi, numerosi orafi e incisori. A Strasburgo Theodor sposò Catherine Esslinger ed ebbe una figlia, Maria Magdalena, che nel 1617 sposò l'incisore e disegnatore Matthäus Merian. Soggiornò a Londra tra il 1587 e il 1588, prima di stabilirsi definitivamente a Francoforte sul Meno di cui chiese la cittadinanza. Morì a Francoforte il 27 marzo 1598, all'età di settant'anni. L'attività di editore fu continuata dal genero Matthäus Merian che completò fra l'altro le edizioni dei Grandi Viaggi e dei Piccoli Viaggi che erano state interrotte da Johann Theodor de Bry nel 1590.

Item Description: 1515. Title within fine one-piece white-on-black woodcut border after Urs Graf incorporating architectural columns, two fools at the top and at the bottom two putti holding an empty shield, white-on-black initials. Sm 4to. (208 x 145mm). [36]ff (last blank). 19th century marbled boards. A rare early Strasbourg edition published by Matthias SchÜrer of Maarten van Dorp's anthology of fables, chiefly by Aesop and Avianus, which was one of the most popular Renaissance collections and much used in schools. Initially a product of Dutch humanism, the collection was expanded in the 1520s and 1530s and became, for example, the standard school Aesop in England. The Latin translations found here in this early collection are by Dorp's friend and correspondent Erasmus and fellow humanists Hadrianus Barlandus, Guilielmus Goudanus, Angelus Politianus, Petrus Crinitus and Ioannes Antonius Cambanus. the 'Vita Aesopi' is that of Maximus Planudes. Our copy corresponds to the VD online copy which only has an imprint 'In Libera Argentina' on the title-page while another issue is known to also read on the title-page 'apud Matthia Schurerium' and hold the initials 'M.S.' in the shield. The fine title border is a version of one by Urs Graf used by Froben in Basle in the same year (see Hieronymus). In our copy Aesop's fable no. 50 De Adolescente & Cato of a Young-Man and a Cat' obviously caused offence to an early reader and has been neatly inked over. Light marginal staining and a few small wormholesat blank lower margin of last few leaves. VD16 A449. Ritter, Rep. I, 93. Schmidt VIII, 121. OCLC (USA: Harvard only).

Item Description: Colophon: Venice: In aedib. Aldi, 1503. some light foxing, thin dampmark to top margin of first few leaves, six gatherings with copious marginalia in an early hand (see below), final leaf with the partly-erased inscription of 'Antonii Larisi', ff. [vi], 182, [bound with:] Origen. Explanatio. in Epistola Pauli ad Romanos Divo Hieronymo interprete. [Colophon:] Venice: Per Simonem de Luere, 1506, final blank discarded, ff. 73, folio, later vellum, spine and fore-edge lettered in ink, a little bit darkened and rumpled, very good. The first Aldine edition of Origen, containing homilies on the Old Testament in a Latin translation by Jerome. A couple of incunable printings of various short works preceded this edition, but Origen was a dangerous author to be associated with, since Jerome himself had alleged him to be a heretic. When Pico della Mirandola attempted a revival in 1486 it resulted in his own arrest for heresy, and only in 1493 was Pico pardoned, freeing other humanists to investigate Origen's works. This Aldine edition marked the beginning of the new understanding and was immediately followed by a number of other printings of works by Origen, including the first collected works in 1512 and Erasmus's edition, published shortly after his death. For Aldus the edition is significant in containing the first appearance of the large-format dolphin device, and also a preface acknowledging the partnership of Aldus's father-in-law for the first time. Bound with it is a rare printing from this significant period of another exegetical work by Origen, also printed in Jerome's Latin translation, by Simon de Luere of Venice. This text, on Romans, does not survive in the original Greek (the homilies in the Aldine edition saw their Greek editio princeps in the seventeenth century). An early owner has taken advantage of the new freedom around Origen's works and read substantial sections of this copy carefully. A number of leaves have frequent annotation in a careful hand in the margins on both sides of the text. Many appear to be keywords but the quantity is greater than usual and others add details or summarise passages. If nothing else, the interests of the reader are made relatively clear: in the table of contents of the first work, every reference to the Pope in the contents of the homily on Leviticus is called out. (First work: Adams O291; Ahmanson-Murphy 72; CNCE 55859; Second: CNCE 31790; not in COPAC or Worldcat). Bookseller Inventory # 51957
