About this Item: Roterodami, Ex Officina Arnoldi Leers., 1649. Couverture rigide. Condition: Bon. Page de titre : Francisci Petrarchae Poëtae oratorique clarissimi, De remediis utriusque Fortunae, Libri duo, Ejusdem De Contemptu Mundi Colloquiorum Liber, quem secretum suum inscripsit. Editio nova ac melior. Cum indicibus duobus, altero Dialogorum, altero Rerum. Pétrarque (1304-1374). Dans l'Italie savante et cléricale du XIVe siècle, Pétrarque est à l'avant-garde de l'esprit humaniste renaissant. Très tôt initié aux textes classiques de Cicéron et d'Ovide, sa culture cléricale a su très tôt s'ouvrir aux grandes idées philosophiques. L'oeuvre de Pétrarque retentit de ces différents échos. Des ouvrages en latin tels que Africa (1338-1342), Secretum meum (1342-1358), De vita solitaria (1346-1356) et De otio religiosorum ont certes contribué à la célébrité de l'humaniste, mais sa postérité, Pétrarque la doit à son Canzoniere (Rerum vulgarium fragmenta). Le recueil, qui va marquer l'histoire du lyrisme pour très longtemps. Le De Contemptu Mundi ou Secretum est la plus ancienne (vers 1342). Il se compose de trois dialogues où le poète se fait reprocher par saint Augustin sa vanité, son ambition, son amour même pour Laure. Nul n'a mieux décrit que lui-même cette mélancolie sans cause qui venait assombrir ses plus beaux jours, ces vaines aspirations vers le bien. Dans le premier livre de De Remediis utriusque fortunae (écrit vers 1360-66) l'auteur fait connaître les remèdes contre la prospérité; dans le second, ceux contre l'adversité. Chaque livre se divise en un grand nombre de brefs dialogues entre des personnages allégoriques (Joie, Espérance et Raison, dans le premier livre. Douleur, Crainte et Raison dans le second). en latin [36] + 824 pages + [26] Plein vélin à rabats en bon état, dos lisse avec le titre écrit à la main. Etiquette de bibliothèque en bas du dos. Lacets apparents. Frontispice pleine page avec le titre inséré en cartouche dans le haut de l'illustration. Vignette gravée sur la page de titre. 8 x 14. Seller Inventory # EAL-240608-09

About this Item: LUTETIÆ, APUD GULIELMUM CAVELLAT, SB PINGUI GALLINA, EX ADVERSO COLLEGIJ CAMERACENSIS, 1557, 1557. coeva in piena pergamena. Condition: Buone. Solida legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, dorso a tre nervi rilevati con autore e titolo breve manoscritti a uno scomparto, tagli spruzzati. Antica nota manoscritta la recto del foglio di carta bianco; 811 pagine numerate, compreso il frontespizio che presenta una lacuna verticale di qualche millimetro (lontano dal testo) lungo il lato interno con riattaccatura mediante linguetta di carta; 1 pagina bianca; 11 pagine non numerate di indici; 1 pagina bianca con antiche annotazioni di possesso. All'interno, a pagina 428, angolo superiore destro riattaccato a seguito di lacerazione e rinforzo lungo il lato esterno mediante linguetta di carta. Testo in latino e carattere corsivo, inquadrato all'interno di filetti a penna con inchiostro  color mattone. " Consta di numerosi dialoghi divisi in due libri: il primo (122 dialoghi tra Ragione, Gaudio e Speranza) presenta i rimedi contro i pericoli che derivano dalla fortuna favorevole, il secondo (131 dialoghi tra Ragione, Dolore e Timore) quelli contro i mali della sfortuna. E' un'opera in cui è pressoché assente l'intento di sistematicità: in essa, ricollegandosi all'antica etica stoica, Petrarca precisa il senso di quel rapporto tra virtù e fortuna che avrà grande rilievo in tutta la cultura umanistica e che troverà una esemplare rielaborazione in Machiavelli." (Italica). Esemplare in buone condizioni complessive, salvo i due piccoli difetti segnalati al frontespizio e alla pagina 428, qualche lieve gora marginale a poche pagine, macchia di cera (?) al piatto  anteriore della legatura. 0.

About this Item: Rotterdam (Roterodami), Ex officina Arnoldi Leers, 1649., 1649. 12mo. (XXXVI),824,(26 index),(2 blank) p. Overlapping vellum. 14 cm (Ref: STCN ppn 840099045; Brunet 4,567; Graesse 5,235) (Details: 5 thongs laced through the joints. Woodcut printer's mark on the title, the motto reads 'Labore et Vigilantia'; the mark depicts a woman, Vigilantia, holding an open book in her left hand and an oil lamp in her right; At her feet a crane; the element 'labor' is represented by a ploughing farmer in the background. Leers used 8 different versions of this mark) (Condition: Short title in ink on the back. In smaller and fading type has been written on the upper board 'Sc. et Fort'. Bookplate on the front pastedown. Ownership entry on the front flyleaf. Stamp on the verso of this flyleaf, and 2 stamps on the title. Paper slightly yellowing) (Note: Petrarca, 1304-1374, is of course known as the father of the Renaissance and for his Italian poetry; still most of his writings were in Latin. His 'De remediis utriusque fortunae' is a collection of 254 Latin dialogues. 'The dialogues, completed towards the end of Petrarch's life, are treasure-chests of wisdom and humour which, despite the passing of six centuries, have not lost their relevance. They display remarkably lucid ideas that are cogently expressed. Drawing on classical sources, Petrarch expounded on refinement in taste and intellect, on finesse and propriety in speech and style. The writing is a bouquet of moral philosophy, set out to show how thought and deed can generate happiness on the one hand, or sorrow and disillusionment on the other. In a recurring theme throughout the dialogues, Petrarch advises humility in prosperity and fortitude in adversity'. (Wikipedia). Petrarca's model was Boetius' 'De philosophiae Consolatione'. § At the end of our edition has been added the 'Secretum', or 'My Secret', a dialogue between Petrarca and the Church Father Augustinus, which may considered to be an attempt to reconcile his Renaissance humanism with his christian faith. The 'De remediis' is preceded by a short biography. This biography contains a bibliographic riddle: page **1 recto of the preliminary pages, repeats partly in smaller type, part of the text of the preceding page *12 verso) (Provenance: This book is linked three times to the French city Lyon. The oval armorial stamp on the title, 'Ex bibliotheca J. Richard M.D.' belongs to Jacques Richard, 1744-1812, M.D (Medicus Doctor). 'Il fit ses études à Paris, où il fut reçu docteur en chirurgie. Il exerça à Montbard, Avignon, puis à Lyon. Sa bibliothèque fut vendue aux enchères en 1812'. (Source: 'Numelyo - bibliothèque numérique de Lyon', 'Collections', 'Provenance des livres anciens'). In an obituary published on the 10th of March 1812 in the 'Journal de Lyon' we read that this learned medicin spoke Latin fluently. § The bookplate on the front pastedown, 'Ex libris Joannis-Baptistae Marduel, ad S. Nicetium Lugdunensem Vicarii', belonged to Jean-Baptiste Marduel, 1762-1848, who was one of the most enthusiast book collectors in Lyon at the beginning of the 19th century. From 1803 he worked as 'premier vicaire' at Saint-Nizier, one of the main churches in Lyon. His private library, which filled the whole presbytery, consisted of 13 to 14000 volumes. In 1836 he sold his collection to two religious orders for a symbolic price, and on the condition that they would never sell them. (P. Woetmann Chistoffersen, 'French Music in the early sixteenth century', Copenhagen, 1994, p. 10/12) § A small oval stamp on the title, 'Domus Lugdunensis S(ocietatis)' indicates the next owner, the order of the Jesuits at Lyon. The order was banished again in France in 1880, and had to close its schools and institutions. § On the front flyleaf in ink the name of an earlier owner: 'Bartholomaeus B. Cromhout, Ao 1662, Octob.' Part of Cromhouts library was auctioned in 1703, in which year was published in Amsterdam: 'Bibliotheca Cromhoutiana sive Catalogus Elegantissimus, Rarissimorum and Curiosissimorum omnis Generis Libroru.
