About this Item: Basel, Per Ambrosium et Aurelium, Frobenios Fratres, (1565, March, -on colophon). Folio. One cont. full vellum w. six raised bands on back. The boards have perhaps been covered with vellum a bit later. A few wormholes to upper and lower part of back. Inner hinges a bit weak, but binding sound. Some leaves brownspotted, but overall internally nice. Cont. inscription in ink on top of t-p. ("Domus Casa Professore Romana Socieded Jesu"). Woodcut printer's device on t-p. Woodcut initials, three of which are large (4,9 x 4,9 cm). 348, 279, 190, (2), (66, -Index) pp. The rare first Langi/ Langum-edition and third Latin edition of the Opera of Justin. The first edition of the Opera in the original Greek appeared in 1551 (Paris, Stephanus). The first Latin edition appeared in 1554 (Basel Dupuys), the second (the Galen-edition) in 1555 (Basel, Hier. Froben & Nic. Episcopius) and the third (the Langi-edition) in 1565. This is probably the best of the Latin editions, and the Latin version of the Opera by Jo. Langi was also used for the standard Greek-Latin parallel editions of 1593 and 1615. Justin the Martyr (100 - 165 AD) was a Christian philosopher, who was brought up a pagan. He is primarily known for his dailogues and his apologies, all of which are present here. The apologies constitute the earliest Christian ones of some length. He died a martyr in Rome after having been condemned a Christian by Q. Junius Rusticus. As a philosopher he dealt with Stocism, Aristotelianism and Pythagoreanism before he meant to have found the truth in Platonism. Philosophically he is most interesting in his attempt to unite Christianity with philosophy (i.e. Platonism), as Boethius did a few centuries later, and Justin actually anticipates the philosophy of history of Origin (ca. 185 - ca. 255) and Eusebius (ca. 260 - 340). He is very interesting when viewed as a thinker, who represents the union of philosophy and thought with the new religious attraction in the Eastern part of the Empire under Antonius Pius, i.e. Christianity.Graesse III:515, Adams J:497, not in Brunet.

Officia M.T.C. Ein Buch/So Marcus Tullius Cicero: CICERO, Marcus TulIius

About this Item: Augsburg, Heinrich Steiner, 29. April 1531., 1531. Hardcover. Condition: Gut. 1. Auflage. Fol. (8), XCI Bll., 1 w. Bl. Mit Titelholzschn., blattgr. Portraitholzschn. (Titel verso) und 103 Textholzschnitten (3 Wdhl.); 100 von ihnen und das Portrait stammen vom "Petrarca-Meister", einer wird H. Burgkmair zugeschrieben (Bl. 78r), zwei sind von anonymen Holzschneidern (Bll. 50r, 71v). (VORGEB.): CAESAR, Gaius Julius: Gaii Julii Cesaris des großmechtigen ersten Römischen Keysers Historien vom Gallier und der Römer Burgerische krieg: so er selbst beschriben: und durch sondere grosse manheyt seiner ritterlichen tugent gefüret hat. Mainz, Johann Schöffer, September 1530. Fol. (32), CLXIII Bll., 1 w. Bl. Mit 14 blattgroßen und 101 (3 wiederh.) Textholzschn., große Holzschn.-Druckermarke Schöffers. Dunkelbr. blindgepr. Ldrbd. d. Zt. mit Streicheisenlinien, Rollen- und Einzelstempeln (teilw. stärker berieben, Kanten und Kap. bestoßen, Vordergelenk angebrochen), Vorsätze entfernt. I: Zweiter Druck der ersten Steiner-Ausgabe, in der Übersetzung durch J. Neuber; wie immer mit dem ausgewechselten Holzschnitt BI. 71 v, hier auch mit dem geänderten Schriftzug "VLIZES" (BI. 86r). Die berühmten lllustrationen des Cicero waren früher H. Burgkmair zugeschrieben worden (so noch Muther 878-885), gelten aber mittlerweile fast ausschließlich als Arbeiten des Petrarca-Meisters (u.a. aufgrund des Holzschnitts BI. 53v mit den Buchstaben "HW", die man als Monogramm von Hans Weiditz las, glaubte man, diesen mit dem Petrarca-Meister identifizieren zu können; diese Auffassung ist aber bis heute umstritten geblieben). Entstanden sind die Holzschnitte in Augsburg schon aus den 1520er Jahren für Grimm und Wirsung, verwendet hat sie zum ersten Mal Steiner in seiner Cicero-Edition; 32 von ihnen waren ursprünglich für eine deutsche Petrarca-Ausgabe angefertigt worden, Steiner hat sie 1532 in "Von der Artzney bayder Glück" ihrer Bestimmung gemäß wieder eingesetzt. Die Holzschnitte dieses Buchs zählen neben den Petrarca-Illustrationen zum Hauptwerk des Meisters. Nicht selten stellt man seine Arbeiten neben die Dürers. Die besondere Sensibilität für soziale Probleme der Zeit, die man dem Petrarca-Meister zuspricht, zeigt sich in verschiedenen Illustrationen, in denen er Gegenposition zu den Morallehren des Cicero-Textes bezieht; so z.B. auf BI. LXVII v, wo der Text die Frage, ob Raub aus Not erlaubt sei, verneint, der Holzschnitt die Sache aber differenzierter darstellt: ein Ritter nimmt seinem Gefangenen noch das letzte Hemd, ein einfacher Mann stiehlt Brot, um es seinen zerlumpten Kindern zu geben. Darüber hinaus vermitteln die Holzschnitte ein anschauliches Bild vom Leben zur Zeit der Renaissance. Beeindruckend ist immer wieder die Feinheit der Strichführung, die den Figuren Leben und Ausdrucksstärke verleiht. (Lit. zur Diskussion um den Petrarca-Meister: M.J.Friedländer, Holzschnitte von Hans Weiditz, Berlin 1922; Th. Musper, Die Holzschnitte des Petrarca-Meisters, München 1927; W. Scheidig, Die Holzschnitte des Petr.-M.s, Berlin 1955). Das Schwarzenberg-Portrait entstand nach einer Dürer-Zeichnung. II: Erste Mainzer Ausgabe; übersetzt von R. Philesius. Die Illustrationen stammen zum größten Teil aus der H.-S.-Beham- Schule, die blattgroßen aus der Cäsar-Ausgabe Grüningers von 1508. Zwei Werke mit berühmten Illustrationen in einem Band, die Holzschnitte durchweg in guten Abdrucken. Der Einband zeigt auf beiden Deckeln ein rechteckiges, in der Waagerechten dreigeteiltes Mittelfeld mit geometrisch angeordneten floralen Einzelstempeln, umgeben von 2 Rollen: einer Kranz- und einer Salvatorrolle; letztere besteht aus Salvator, David mit Harfe, Paulus und Johannes, alle mit den üblichen Untertexten. Der gesamte Band etwas gebräunt (3 Bll. stärker) und stockfleckig, anfangs und im letzten Viertel mit Wasserrand, letzte 2 BIL des Cicero mit k1. Wurmfraßspur im weißen Rand.
