Die erste selbständige Druckschrift.

Item Description: [Geneva] 1595., 1595. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. apud Iacobum Chouët 4to, [40], 191, 32, [28], 315, [13] p., with the blank leaf h2, margins at end a little worn and browned, no major defects but printed on indifferent paper, contemp. calf with large blind-stamped decoration in centre of each cover, rebacked quite impressively but sewn rather tightly into the gutter, nothing lost but would be wearisome for extended reading, corners repaired, one quite extensively Adams S2053. First edition of Casaubon's Suetonius, one of his more important commentaries (cf. S.Weinstock, Divus Julius, Oxford 1971), and quite scarce (apparently not in BL). The typograpical ornaments show it to be one of the books printed by the Geneva press of the Estiennes for other publishers in their period of financial difficulty, though Chouët is not one of those publishers known to Schreiber (p.233: libri Stephanorum latentes). The preliminary poems include (besides one by Scaliger) one by Paul Estienne, with a very oblique reference to the Estiennes' device: this 'second Suetonius' should be crowned with laurel from the same tree as a triumphator.

Selten zu findende Ausgabe, einziges Werk überhaupt, das der Verleger Gamonetus im Jahr 1605 veröffentlichte. * Isaac Casaubon (* 1559 - 1614 ) war gelehrter Protestant und bedeutender Humanist. Er wurde vor allem durch den Nachweis berühmt, dass das sogenannte Corpus Hermeticum nicht vor dem 1. nachchristlichen Jahrhundert entstanden sein konnte ( in" De rebus sacris et ecclesiasticis exercitationes XVI", 1614, London ). Bis dahin hatte man angenommen, der Verfasser der sog. hermetischen Schriften sei Hermes Trismegistos , eine Verschmelzung des griechischen Gottes Hermes mit dem ägyptischen Gott Thot. Bis in die frühe Neuzeit glaubte man, Hermes Trismegistos hätte tatsächlich gelebt. Casaubon jedoch entlarvte die Texte als Traktate einer Gruppe hellenistischer Autoren der o.a. Epoche. ** Das vorl. Werk "Suetoni libri" enthält lange griechische Passagen in den "Animadversiones" sowie mehrere sehr ausführliche Register. 17. - 18. JAHRHUNDERT. Bookseller Inventory # 31797

Auli Persii Flacci Satirarum liber. Isaacus Casaubonus: PERSIUS.

Item Description: Paris (Parisiis), Apud Hieronymum Drouart, 1615., 1615. 8vo. 2 volumes in 1: (XV),(1 blank),43,(4),(1 blank); (XXXII),558,(26 index) p. Vellum 17.5 cm (Ref: Schweiger 2,711; Graesse 5,212; Ebert 16282; Smitskamp, 'The Scaliger collection', no. 116) (Details: 5 thongs laced through the joints. The first title shows an engraving of a 'thiasos': a drunken Bacchus is carried off by a bunch of satyrs, accompanied by some revellers. The second title has an oval woodcut printer's mark; it depicts a thisle flank by the initials A and D. of Ambrosius (Ambroise) Drouart, the brother of Hieronymus (Jerôme). Hieronymus kept using his brother's printer's after his death in 1608; the motto, in fact 2 mottoes, reads: 'Nul ne s'y frote', 'patere aut abstine' ('let no one meddle', and 'bear of forebear'). The first volume contains a preface, the Latin text of the Satires and 18 pages with 'Glossae veteres in Persium'. The second volume contains the commentary of Casaubon) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned and somewhat soiled. All four ties gone. Endpapers worn and somewhat soiled. First title dustsoiled, and its right margin is very thumbed) (Note: The well-born and well-to-do Roman poet Aulus Persius Flaccus, 34-62 A.D., produced during his short life one book (libellus) with 6 satires, together 650 hexameters. 'They are well described as Horatian diatribes transformed by Stoic rhetoric'. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 805) The first is 'on the decay of literary taste in his own time and the neglect of the manly Republican authors, the second on vanity of wealth and luxury, the third on idleness, the fourth on self-knowledge, the fifth on true liberty, the sixth on the proper use of riches'. (H.J. Rose, 'A History of Latin Literature', London, 1967, p. 377) The style is obscure, contorted and crammed with allusions to Horace and Lucilius. He was much read in antiquity and admired as a moralist in the Middle Ages, but now he is found dull, too difficult, cryptic, too far fetched, and too complicated. 'So fühlte sich zumal das 19. Jh. von seinem vielschichtigen Stil abgestossen, während sich erst neuerdings eine gerechtere Würdigung durchsetzen beginnt'. (Neu Pauly, 9, 619) A specimen of this new appraisal is the following quote: 'The elements of composition in Persius' satires - words and ideas, images, steps in the argument, registers of speech and literary style, speeches in dramatic dialogue- are abruptly or peculiarly, even bizarrely, combined. One is faced by an unpredictable, surprising series of conceptions; continuous attention is necessary if one is to understand. However, the surprises and incongruities are often observably intelligent, apt and curiously artistic. From a literary point of view, the quality of continual surprise in Persius' style makes the Satires amusing to read'. (J.R. Bond, 'Persius, the Satires', Warminster 1980, p. 5) § This 1615 Persius edition is a reissue of the edition previously published in 1605, also from the presses of the Drouart brothers. The Latin text was based on that which was edited by the French scholar Pithou in Paris in 1585. The edition of 1605 and its extensive commentary were produced by the French protestant scholar Isaac Casaubon, 1559-1614, the first critical commentator of Persius. His preface is a vigorous defense of Persius' Stoic earnestness end philosophic constancy. 'The ethical interest is strong in his Persius (1605), on which he had lectured at Geneva and Montpellier, and his commentary on the Stoic satirist, of which Scaliger said that the sauce was better than the meat, was reprinted in Germany as late as 1833, and has been ultimately merged in Conington's edition' (of 1872)) (Provenance: On the front pastedown the name: 'E.A. Groenman, 1839'. We found an Albertus Groenman, 1814-1861, member of the 'Provinciale Staten van Groningen' from 1851 till 1859, elected for Zuidhorn, profession manufacturer and merchant. He might have been the owner once) (Collation: a8, A8, b-c8, â8, ê8, A-Z8, 2A-2NO8, 2O4) (Photographs on request) 1000 gr. Bookseller Inventory # 120143

Item Description: Book Condition: Antiquarian. Apud viduam Antonij de Harsy, Lugduni, 1612/21. 2 vols in one. (44),811,(48);(10),998,(38). Leather bound. Title pages printed in red and black. Vignettes. Front and back cover loose. Last pages bit wrinkled, with small tear. Pen and pencil markings and underlinings. Greek text and Latin translation in parallel columns. The work is invaluable for providing fictionalized information about the Hellenistic literary world of the leisured class during the Roman Empire. To the majority of modern readers, even more useful is the wealth of information provided in the Deipnosophists about earlier Greek literature. In the course of discussing classic authors, the participants make quotations, long and short, from the works of about 700 earlier Greek authors and 2,500 separate writings, many of them otherwise unrecorded. Food and wine, luxury, music, sexual mores, literary gossip and philology are among the major topics of discussion, and the stories behind many artworks such as the Venus Kallipygos are also transmitted in its pages. In addition to its main focuses, the text offers an unusually clear portrait of homosexuality in late Hellenism. The eminent Huguenot humanist Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614) established the definitive text of Deipnosophistae in 1597, when it was first printed alongside the Latin translation of Jacques Dalechamps. Casaubon's commentary on the work appeared several years later, and was frequently bound together with the bilingual text. The copy offered here is the second edition of Casaubon's text and commentary. From the library of the late Prof. W. Geoffrey Arnott. Antiquarian. Bookseller Inventory # 24931

Item Description: Paris (Parisiis), Apud Ambrosium & Hieronymum Drouart, 1603., 1603. 4to. 2 volumes in 1: (XX),375,(1 blank),(55)(1 blank); 576,34,(2 blank) p. Overlapping vellum (Ref: Schweiger 2,384; Sandys 2,209; Fabricius/Ernesti. 'Bibliotheca Latina' 3,101/02; NP Suppl. 2, p. 298; Graesse 3,303; Ebert 9827) (Details: 6 thongs laced through the joints. 2 titles, the first is in red and black, the title of the second part is black only. Woodcut printer's mark on the title, a thisle within an oval banner a French and Latin motto, reading: 'Nul ne s'y frote' and 'patere aut abstine', 'let no one meddle', and 'bear of forebear'. 1 text engraving) (Condition: Vellum age-toned. One of the thongs gone. Endpapers renewed, probably in the 19th century before 1879. Some slight foxing. Right lower corner partly and lightly waterstained) (Note: This collection of biographies of Roman emperors, Caesars and usupers was published for the first time in Milan in 1475. It formed part of a bigger collection of historical texts. It was preceded by 'De XII Caesaribus' of Suetonius, and followed by work of the late antique historians Eutropius and Paulus Diaconus. The French classical scholar Isaac Casaubon, or Isaacus Casaubonus, was the first to publish the biographies written by otherwise unknown authors Aelianus Spartianus, Iulius Capitolinus, Aelius Lampridius, Vulcatius Gallicanus, Trebellius Pollio & Flavius Vopiscus, separately in 1603, under the title of 'Historiae Augustae Scriptores Sex'. The first part contains the text, the second the exhaustive commentary of Casaubon. The 30 surviving biographies in this collection were probably written between 293 and 330 A.D. They cover the period from Hadrian to Carinus (roughly 117-284/85). The beginning of the collection seems to be lost, and the original title is unknown. It seems obvious that the biographies written by Suetonius, sometime after 100 A.D., are the example for these 'vitae' of later emperors. The collection is one of the most debated and controversial sources for the history of the Roman emperors. The historic value of the 30 biographies is diverse, some seem to be trustworthy and offer useful information, others seem to be fiction, full of wondrous tales, anecdotes and short stories. Some tend to having been written in the tradition of the ancient novel. The obvious falsification of sources and documents rendered the entire collection suspect. Such caution and some of these observations and were already made by Casaubon. 'He revealed some of their inconsistencies and improbable statements. He used considerations of style and content to argue that the works ascribed in the manuscripts to Aelius Spartianus, Aelius Lampridius and Julius Capitolinus could more plausibly be ascribed to a single author. He showed that the collection had been edited and revised, though the job had been done by an incompetent. He denied that the date or purpose of the revision could be precisely fixed: 'Only a prophet could divine what moved the maker of this collection to arrange it in this form'. (A. Grafton, Defenders of the text, Cambr. Mass. 1991, p. 148) Nowadays it is believed by most scholars that the collected biographies had only one author, writing for the Roman senatorial aristocracy. 'Generell wird die Geschichte des 2. und 3. Jahrhundert aus dem Blickwinkel der nichtchristlichen stadtrömischen Senatsaristokratie betrachtet und das Kaisertum nach dem Verhalten zu diesem Stand bewertet'. Some believe that the biographies are propaganda for the Roman emperor Julianus Apostata, and his pagan revival ca. 360. The Dutch version of Wikipedia refers to the interesting theory of the historian Jona Lendering, stipulating that the collection is an amusing mockumentary, meant to show that christianity was a un-Roman ideology. Nowadays the collection of the 'Scriptores Historiae Augustae' is referred to as the 'Historia Augusta', and used with care by ancient historians.

Item Description: apud viduam Antonij de Harsy, ad insigne Scuti Coloniensis, Lugduni (Lyon), 1612. Rilegato. Book Condition: molto buono. In-folio (225x345 mm. ), pp. (48), 811, (49). Segnatura: [ast]4; 2[ast]-4[ast]6; 5[ast]4; A-3C6. Frontespizio in rosso e nero. Marca tipografica in xilografia al frontespizio. Testatine, fregi e iniziali xilografiche. Legatura in piena pelle coeva, piatti inquadrati da filetti in oro; dorso (anticamente restaurato) a 6 nervi con fregi in oro agli scomparti.Celebre opera greca latinizzata da Jacques Dalechamps ed assistita editorialmente da Isaac Casaubon, preferibile a ogni altra edizione per la sobria eleganza della traduzione e per il ricco apparato esegetico che la correda. Divisa in 15 libri (i primi due, parti del terzo, undicesimo e quindicesimo, esistono ab antiquo solo in epitome), i Deipnosofisti è strutturata in forma di dialogo fra ventinove filosofi radunati a banchetto.La conversazione che si tiene presso l'intellettuale simposio è una miniera di informazioni sulla musica, la danza, i costumi, i giochi, il tempo libero, la sessualità e, in modo particolare, le abitudini culinarie del mondo antico. Per questo particolare aspetto essa è oggi ritenuta una tra le fonti informative più precise ed estese per la storia della gastronomia. L'autore, retore e grammatico, fiorì verso il tramontare del II secolo dopo Cristo, probabilmente all'epoca dell'imperatore Commodo. Bibliografia: Paleari, 66. Per la fortuna del testo si veda anche: A. L. di Lello-Finuoli, Per la storia del testo di Ateneo, in Misc. Bibl. Apost. Vatic. VII, Città del Vaticano, 2000. Una recente prima traduzione italiana, con note bibliografiche e testo greco, è stata recentemente pubblicata su progetto di Luciano Canfora (Salerno Edizioni, Roma, 2001).
