About this Item: Parisiis, Gulielmum (Guillaume) Guillard, 1559. Petit in-8 (155 x 102 mm), demi-basane fauve, dos lisse orné de filets ondulés et fleurons dorés, titre doré (reliure du XIXe), (1) f. titre, (28) p., (1) f. blanc, 123, (1) f. d'errata [sign. a8 e8 A-P8 Q4], 2 lettrines sur fond criblé, caractères romains ronds et italiques, qqs caractères grecs. Première édition du célèbre traité de Marsile Ficin, publiée par René Benoît sous le patronage du duc de Lorraine, enrichie d’une préface, de notes, de tables et d’un index. Angevin d'origine, René Benoît (1521-1608) fut ordonné prêtre en 1551. Il fit partie de la suite de Marie Stuart en Écosse, puis devint curé de Saint-Eustache en 1569. Son influence sur ses paroissiens et les marchands des Halles fut telle, qu’on le surnomma "le Pape des Halles". En 1566, il fit imprimer une traduction française de la Bible qui fut dénoncée comme calviniste et qui lui valut d’être exclu de la Faculté de théologie. Confesseur et intime d’Henri IV, il revint en grâce et fut désigné évêque de Troyes de 1593 à 1604. L’impression est due à Guillaume Guillard, neveu de Charlotte Guillard (1480-1557), première femme imprimeuse en France, qui avait associé son neveu à son entreprise à partir de 1553. Elle avait été l’épouse de l'imprimeur Berthold Rembolt, associé d'Ulrich Gering, lequel créa la première imprimerie en France à l’enseigne du "Soleil d’Or". Par cette œuvre capitale dans l’élaboration de la synthèse, alors proprement révolutionnaire, entre révélation chrétienne et "théologie platonicienne", Marsile Ficin aboutit à une nouvelle apologétique fondée sur la réconciliation entre théologie et philosophie, "docta religio" et "pia philosophia". Deux belles lettrines sur fond criblé. Caractères romains ronds et italiques. Quelques citations en caractères grecs. (Manque à Adams et aux principales bibliographies spécialisées. Un unique exemplaire dans les bibliothèques françaises [CCFr] : celui de la BnF). Petite étiquette au dos. Très bon exemplaire, imprimé sur beau papier, frais, très bien conservé.

About this Item: Basel Froben 1551 [colophon:] Basileae Apud Hier. Frobenium et Nic. Episcopium, An. MDLI Mense Martio, 1551. A highly important edition with the commentary of Simon Grynaeus, the celebrated Swiss astronomer and geographer. Replete with large historiated and figurative capital letters throughout. Folio, in a very handsome binding of antique calf over boards. (12), 952 + (48) index. A handsome copy in pleasing condition, well preserved, fresh and unpressed internally. A FINE AND HANDSOME COPY. Cited ‘for the elegance of the impression’ by Froeben. THE KING OF PHILOSOPHERS. ONE OF THE SUPREME TEXTS OF THE RENAISSANCE. Preceded with the dedication of the great curator S. Grynaeus, the proem dedication to Lorenzo de Medici and the important Life of Plato written by Ficino the original translator of the manuscripts into Latin; index at the end; 36 of the Platonic dialogues and works(the Dialogues, 10 books of the Republic, 12 books of the Laws and 12 of the Letters), edited and with the commentary of Marsilio Ficino. A highly important edition of the Opera of Plato with the translation of Marsilio Ficino, the first and most important of the modern epoch, in itself one of the primary movers of the humanism of the Renaissance. In 1462 by order and gift of Cosimo de Medici and with support of the Academy the manuscript translations were begun. They were concluded under the beneficence of Lorenzo the Magnificent. The translation, which was completed in the 1470's contributed in great measure to the rediscovery of critical thinking and of the disciplines of Greek scholarship. Ficino had began his translation under the patronage of Cosimo de Medici in 1463. The work was completed five years later and circulated in manuscript for several years before finally being printed in parts beginning in 1484. It wasn't until 1491 that and edition brought together for the first time the fundamental text of Plato with Ficino’s PLATONICA THEOLOGIA, the most important Renaissance interpretation of the great philosopher. In this groundbreaking work Ficino sets out to prove that a harmony can be found between Christian theology and Platonism. The conversion of these two modes of thought, the classic and the medieval was instrumental in the formation of the modern European identity. The importance Ficino placed on this work even extended to the printing and he was not pleased with the first edition which contained 7 pages of corrigenda. In contrast, Ficino was very pleased with the typographical correctness of the later 1491 edition and this printing in large measure comes with the most important of the textual corrections and emendations and changes. The editio princeps from the Greek texts was provided by Aldus in 1513. This edition was with the rich and important corrections of Grynaeus from one of the early Greek manuscripts. A beautiful and very pleasing example in a rarely encountered period binding with early ownership note on the title. There is no copy noted in either the British Museum catalogue or in Adams. A rare book and very important in the history of Greek and philosophical scholarship. Seller Inventory # 19411

About this Item: E Typographeo Academico, Oxonii, 1835. Condition: Covers worn. 3 volumes, large 4to, original blue cloth. Covers worn. Stephen MacKenna's copy, with his ownership signature and date "(St.) Petersburg ?05" on the title-pages, and his extensive annotations throughout the three volumes. And with the ownership signatures of B. S. Page, April, 1931, on the versos of the front free endpapers of the first and second volumes. It was Page who took over the last part of the translation when MacKenna (1872-1934) found it impossible to continue. Stephen MacKenna's translation of Plotinus, first published by the Medici Society from 1917-1930, is considered one of the great translations in the English language. It was MacKenna's discovery of the present set of Plotinus's work in a St. Petersburg bookshop in Russia that inspired him to embark upon what would become his life's work. MacKenna was working as the chief European foreign correspondent for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World, and covering the Russian Revolution of 1905. As John Dillon records in his introduction to the Penguin edition of MacKenna's translation of The Enneads of Plotinus, "In the course of covering this event (which produced many memorable incidents, including visiting Tolstoy, in company with the Irish nationalist leader Michael Davitt), he was brought first into contact with Plotinus in St Petersburg, where he chanced upon a copy of Creuzer's Oxford edition of the Enneads, which he then began to read while confined temporarily in his hotel room. One can only wonder how much progress he made, but by the beginning of 1907, as we can see from an entry in his journal for 29 March, he had already formed the idea of translating Plotinus into English. The idea grew on him, and later, on 5 December, he writers: "It seems to me that I must be born for him, and that somehow, some day, I must have nobly translated him." MacKenna embarked upon his translation, and in 1908 Bullen published his translation of Plotinus's "On Beauty" in a limited edition. It was this publication that came to the attention of Ernest Debenham, the wealthy founder of Debenham's Stores, who contacted MacKenna, inquiring when his translation of the complete Plotinus would be finished. By this time, the translation had become a great, and at times unwelcome, burden for MacKenna, who struggled throughout his later years with ill health and poverty. Debenham, however, arranged for a prospective publisher, Philip Lee Warner of the Medici Society to contract with MacKenna for the eventual publication of the entire series of Enneads, and pay him a substantial advance - the cost of which Debenham would secretly underwrite - and MacKenna felt compelled to accept. MacKenna would eventually learn that Debenham was his benefactor, and his champion, as Debenham would continue to encourage MacKenna, and provide him with the financial means, to continue his work. By 1928, MacKenna was finding it increasingly difficult to complete the promised work, and wrote to the Irish classicist E. R. Dodds : "I am in agonies over the Sixth, and not the difficulter parts . . . ?Tis all too difficult for me and I wish I were dead - tho' even that has its risks: I figure myself sometimes flying down the corridors of Hades pursued by Plotty and him roaring." Dodds introduced MacKenna to "a young scholar named B. S. Page who, in the event, relieved him (with Debeneham's grudging permission) of the translation of Ennead VI. I-3." It is clear that at this point, MacKenna must have given Page his set of Creuzer's Plotinus, which now bears Page's ownership signatures, dated 1931. In his memoir, E. R. Dodds commented on MacKenna's Plotinus: "Whether in fact MacKenna's Plotinus is worth the enormous price that was paid for it not only in effort and suffering, but in the sacrifice of other potentialities that lay in his rich natural endowment - is a question which I will not attempt to answer. But two things are certain: it is a noble monument to an Irishman's courage, an Englishman's generosity, and the. Seller Inventory # 23229

Plotinus' works, compiled by his disciple Porphyry, are the primary documents of Neo-Platonism and played an important role in the revival of Plato in the Renaissance. Ficino considered Plotinus the summus interpres of Plato. Ficino, encouraged by Pico della Mirandola, translated the works for his patron and financer of the task, Lorenzo de'Medici. Ficino completed the translation in 1486 and his commentary on them in 1491. Lorenzo died one month before their publication. Ficino's dedicatory letter to Lorenzo in this edition is an important document in the history of Florentine Platonism, as it recounts how Lorenzo's father, Cosimo de'Medici, having heard Gemistus Pletho's lectures on the mysteries of Plato, had commissioned Ficino to translate the Platonic corpus. In the midst of his labours the first works of Hermes Trismegistus came to light, and Cosimo requested that Ficino interrupt his work on Plato in order to translate Hermes. From the same dedicatory letter we find that Pico encouraged Ficino to translate Plotinus. In Plotinus, Ficino had found parallels not only to Asclepius, which he mentions in De Vita, but also a source of his beliefs on astral influences, the value of spiritual experiences, and the role of music as a tool for raising souls to God.
