About this Item: Ex Typographia Josephi Marelli,, Mediolani, 1666. In 24? (cm 6,6 x 11), legatura piena pergamena coeva con titoli in oro su tassello al dorso, minuscoli radi tarletti, pp 354, impresa del Marelli al frontespizio (uomo con vela su globo in mare, motto: "Fortunae bona"), errori di paginazione ma completo; esemplare in buone condizioni, radi arrossamenti. Versione espurgata dalle oscenit? e dalle turpitudini verbale, ad opera del teologo gesuita Frusi, dell'opera dell'A. latino i cui temi sono vari: accanto a quelli pi? radicati nella tradizione, altri riguardano pi? da vicino le vicende personali del poeta o il costume della societ? del tempo. In lui coesistono due volti diversi: accanto al poeta mordace, scanzonato, talvolta volgare e lascivo, quello pi? diffuso e noto, vi ? un M. pi? intimo, che permette a se stesso l'effusione dell cuore; in questi versi pi? che sono dispersi nella grande massa degli epigrammi convenzionali, egli tocca vette di autentica poesia: questo, soprattutto, appare in questa raccolta censurata. SBN censisce tre esemplari senza data, stesso titolo e dati tipografici, ma paginazione diversa. Seller Inventory # 8776

About this Item: London - Jacob Tonson & John Watts, 1716. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First edition. A decorative First Edition of Martial's poetical Epigrams. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and decoration. Includes a frontis, and decorative initial letters and head- and tailpieces. With notes in ink on the second blank. In Latin. Edited by Michael Maittaire; information from the ESTC. Michael Maittaire (16671747) was a French-born British classical scholar, bibliographer, and typographer in England and was a tutor to Lord Philip Stanhope. Marcus Valerius Martialis (b. between 38 and 41 AD - d. between 102 and 104 AD), was a Latin poet from Hispania(the Iberian Peninsula) best known for his twelve books of Epigrams, published in Rome between AD 86 and 103, during the reigns of the emperors Domitian, Nerva and Trajan. In these short, witty poems he cheerfully satirises city life and the scandalous activities of his acquaintances, and romanticises his provincial upbringing. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The rear board is attached byone cord only, and may become detached during postage despite our best packing. The front inner hinge is very slightly strained after the blanks, but still good and firm. There is only some mild wear to the extremities, with just some mild bumping, rubbing, discolouration, and some slight marks to the boards. Internally the pages have light scatteredfoxing andoccasional spots,with mild browning. Overall the condition is good. Seller Inventory # 019831

About this Item: Amsterdam (Amstelaedami), Apud G. Gallet, Praefectum Typographiae Huguetanorum, 1701., 1701. 8vo. (XXXII),600;56;142 p., 22 plates Vellum. 20 cm (Ref: STCN p.p. 175529442; Schweiger 2,599; Brunet 3,1492: 'Édition assez recherchée'; Dibdin 2,231; Moss 2,303: 'A valuable edition, and ornamented with very elegant figures'; Graesse 4,425; Ebert 13261) (Details: 5 thonghs laced through the joints. 'Martialis' in old ink written at the head of the spine. Woodcut ornament on the title. 126 engravings of ancient Roman coins on 22 plates) (Condition: Vellum soiled. Occasional pencil crosses at the beginning of an epigram. Small stamp on the front flyleaf. Same stamp on the title) (Note: The Roman epigrammist Martial, ca. 41-104 A.D., embraced in his 14 books of epigrams 'many topics: flattery of social superiors, satire of man's foibles, eroticism'. (The Classical Heritage, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 565/66) Contemporaries valued his work for its frankness and wit. Later Renaissance authors mined his work and sparked a resurgence of Neo-Latin and vernacular epigrams throughout Europe. This book was originally published for the education of the Dauphin (Delphinus), the young crown prince of France, the future king Louis XV. Great care was bestowed on the editing and printing of the series. 39 editions of Latin authors, from Cicero to Ausonius, also difficult ones like Festus and Manilius, were published by leading or promising French scholars. They were also meant for a broad public and offered introductions, reliable and readable texts, easy interpretations, and philological, educational and historical notes without too much philological niceties, or textual criticism. The series was a huge success. This particular edition of Martial was a weak link in the series, and had consequently little success, for it was reissued only once, in 1701. It was originally produced by the otherwise unknown French jurist Vincentius Collesso, or Vincent Collesson, and was first published in Paris in 1680. 'Cette édition ne représente (.) pas un progrès dans l'histoire du texte de Martial, puisque'elle s'apparente, aussi bien pour le texte que pour le paratext, à une compilation'. ('La collection Ad usum Delphini', Grenoble, 2000-2005, vol. 2, p. 227/235) It is in fact a compilation, or better a Variorum-edition. Collesso based his edition on the work of the Dutch latinist Hadrianus Junius (1511-1575), published in 1559 and 1568. Martial's obscenity created a dilemma for editors. Censors banned and expurgated the poems. The solution of Collesson concerning this moral danger was elegant, he omitted from the main text, without any explanation, 151 'pornographic' epigrams, the socalled 'Obscoena', and hid them at the end of the text before the index. The obscene poems were however only accompanied by notes, and were printed without the 'interpretatio' in easy Latin. This in order not to hurt the tender soul of the Dauphin, and the taste of the civilized reader. This edition of 1701 is the only reissue of the Martial of Collesso. It was produced by the Dutch scholar Ludolf Smids, who enriched and elucidated the text with engravings of numerous coins. At the end, as in the original edition of 1680, we find on 56 pages the 'epigrammata obscoena'. Ludolf Smids, 1649-1720, became Doctor of Medicin in 1673 in Leiden. He went to live in Amsterdam, where he spent more time on the study of history, antiquities, poetry and numismatics than as medical practioner. He wrote plays, poetry, and several books on numismatics. (Van der Aa, 17/2, 760) (Provenance: Stamps on the title and front flyleaf: 'Bibliotheca viri F.J.
