Item Description: Apud haeredes Andr. Wechelus, 1582., Francofurti, 1582. 8vo. [xvi], 1129 [i.e. 1139], [1], [xcii] pp. Title-page vignette, a few diagrams, figs. in text (map on p. 176), index, printer’s device on final leaf; minor waterstaining, and also some minor worming affecting the upper margin of the Epistola and the final four leaves (no loss). Original full dark calf with blind-embossed devices on either board; some worming to spine, bottom head cap loosening, light wear to covers which are generally very good. Signature on title-page of early owner, possibly “[Thomas?] Osborne”. Leeds armorial bookplate “Pax in Bello” [Peace in War]. Very good copy. First issued in 1557. “Following its target, the works ranges over the whole of natural philosophy. In astronomy Scaliger ridiculed Cardano’s stress on the astrological significance of comets; and he denied that the world’s decay is proven because the apse of the sun was thirty-one semidiameters nearer the earth than in Ptolemy’s time. Scaliger also rejected several of Cardano’s beliefs in natural history: that the swan sings at its death; that gems have occult virtues (“a flea has more virtue than all the gems”); that there exist corporeal spirits that eat; that the bear forms its cub by licking; and that the peacock is ashamed of its ugly legs. Like Cardano, Scaliger was aware that lead and tin gain in weight during calcination, although he preferred to explain the increase as a result of the addition of particles of fire to the metal.” (p. 135) “The Exotericarum exercitationum won a celebrity that survived the author’s death. Lipsius, Bacon and Leibniz were among its later admirers; and Kepler, who read it as a young man, accepted its Averroist doctrine of attributing the movement of each star to a particular intelligence.” DSB XII, pp. 134-136 (by Paul Lawrence Rose). “In 1557 he became the object of the most savage book review in the bitter annals of literary invective. Julius Caesar Scaliger, another vain and articulate natural philosopher of Italian origins, devoted more than nine hundred quarto pages to refuting one of Cardano’s books, [On Subtlety] De subtilitate, and promised to return to the subject at still greater length. Though Scaliger died without producing more than a fragment of this promised polemic, his Exercitationes became a standard work in university curriculums â€" perhaps the only book review ever known to undergo transformation into a textbook. “In his last years, finally, Cardano faced the Inquisition. Having already ceased to teach in the vain hope of propitiating the Inquisitor of Bologna, he found himself first imprisoned, then held under house arrest, and finally condemned, in 1571, to abjure his heretical views.” Grafton, Cardano’s Cosmos, p 4.

(48),159,(1 blank),1-411,(2) pp. + N.p., (1682?). 8:o. 60,(4 blanks) pp. Contemporary vellum with neat MS title on spine, sprinkled edges. Slight foxing and a few rust stains. A nice copy from Biby Manor in Sweden. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet does not mention this edition. Possibly VD17 23:686483U and VD17 23:686485K, respectively, which probably were published together. "Pacifici a Lapide" is a pseudonym for the legal scientist Philipp Andreas Oldenburger. In 1661, Pufendorf became professor of natural law in the Calvinistic town of Heidelberg, where he wrote the present work, first published in 1667 under the pseudonym "Severini de Monzambano". The book was a critique of the old-fashioned constitution of the Holy Roman Empire. Pufendorf was suspected to be the author of the work and his position in Heidelberg therefore became somewhat insecure. Through his brother Esaias he was offered the chair of natural and public law at the University of Lund in Sweden. Bookseller Inventory # 40198B

Felipe III, dado su prestigio, lo mandó a Nápoles en 1613, introduciéndose allí en la camarilla del conde de Lemos. Fue nombrado presidente del Consejo de Santa Clara de Nápoles y miembro del Consejo de Italia, entre otros destacados cargos. De vuelta a España, acabaría sentando plaza en el Real y Supremo Consejo de Castilla el 7 de enero de 1633, siendo vicario general del obispado de Cuenca. latín. Bookseller Inventory # 36056

Item Description: Per Hier. Forbenium et Nic. Episcopium, Basilae, 1554.

Troisième édition de la version latine de Sigismond Ghelen publiée une première fois par Froben à Bâle en 1540 et 1548. Le Livre des Machabées fut revu par Erasme lui-même. Le philologue allemand Sigismond Ghelen (Prague 1477-1554), en latin Gelenius, fut longtemps attaché comme correcteur à l'imprimerie de Froben à Bâle - dans laquelle l'avait fait entrer son ami Erasme, où il donna la plupart des traductions d'ouvrages grecs, latins et hebreux, et en corrigea les épreuves. L'imprimeur Jean Froben avait donné en 1544 l'édition princeps (grecque) de Flavius Josephe. Ghelen publia une première fois en 1540 sa traduction latine des ?uvres de Flavius Josèphe, dont il offrit la dédicace à Jean Fugger, protecteur de la typographie savante à cette époque - reproduite dans l'édition de 1554. Exemplaire réglé à grandes marges. Cachet ex-libris du XIXe siecle, sur le titre, d'une congrégation religieuse. Reliure frottée, quelques travaux de vers. Brunet, Supplément I, 702.

Epistolarum libri X. Panegyricus Traiano principi dictus.: PLINIUS SECUNDUS, Gaius.

Item Description: Adams P-1541; BMC STC German, p. 704; VD 16, P3485; for the binding: cf. Devauchelle I, p. 60; S. Fogelmark pp. 86, 88, 126, 151, 171, 178, 185, 218, and plates XI, XXXVII R 81 (variant), and XL R 104; Gruel II, 85-87. Fine 16th-century Flemish panel-stamped binding, signed by Anthoine de Gavere. The family De Gavere were bookbinders at Ghent and Bruges between 1450 and 1545. The panel-stamped bindings from Ghent and Bruges are among the most delicately engraved and the most carefully executed of all. According to Weale, Anthoine was active at Ghent from 1459 to 1505, but the archives of Lille contain documents proving that from 1495 to 1505 Anthoine worked at Bruges, not Ghent, and that he was the binder of many of the beautiful manuscripts from the library of Philip I ("the Handsome"), Duke of Burgundy (1478-1506). A binding with similar panels signed by Anthoine de Gavere, and containing another Plinius edition, also dated 1526, is cited by Leon Gruel. Contents: three works by Plinius II, forming the main historical source for Trajan's ill-documented reign: his letters, presenting with considerable charm a richly varied picture of the life of the more cultured Romans under the Empire; his famous rhetorical essay, the Panegyricus to Trajan; and the lives of illustrious men of that period. At the end follow the biographies of literary men by Suetonius, and Julius Obsequens's work on prodigies. With several early inscriptions in the endleaves, including owners' names, and a later inscription dated 1729, early annotations in the margins. In very good condition, with only the title-page rather dirty and small corners torn off the first 2 leaves (not approaching the text). Binding with some damage to the spine and the joints cracked, brass fastenings lost (4 pins remain), some restorations, but still in good condition, the panel stamps on the front board very good and those on the back with only a crack and a few small pock marks.
