Danica historia libris XVI, annis ab hinc: SAXO GRAMMATICUS]. SAXONE

About this Item: Frankfurt am Main, And. Wechel, 1576. Folio. Contemp. full vellum. Calligraphed title on spine. With a fine blindtooled and blackprinted Jesuit monogram on frontcover (IHS Maria) and with tiara and 3 weapons. (8), 342, (22),(2) pp. Last leaf with printers woodcut device (also on title-page). Internally clean and fine, and wide-margined. Lacking last leaf of Index (before the colophon-leaf, which is present). Third and last 16th century Latin edition of Saxo's "History of Denmark", edited by Philip Loncier, rector of the Frankfurt Gymnasium.Saxo Grammaticus (ab. 1150-1220) was probably a secular clerk or secretary to Absalon, Archbishop of Lund, the great Danish churchman, statesman and warrior. Saxo is remembered today as the author of the first full history of Denmark, in which he modeled himself on the classical authors (e.g. Virgil, Plato, Cicero) in order to glorify his fatherland. The work dates from the end of the 12th century and was edited by Christiern Pedersen, a Canon of Lund, and printed by Jodocus Badius Ascendius in Paris in 1514 (the editio princeps) with 16th century re-issues following in 1534 (Basel) and 1576 (the present). Only with the first printing of this seminal work did the work become known throughout academic circles. The work soon received international fame and is to this day renowned as not only being immensely important historically, but also being extremely well written (Saxo is praised by Erasmus, for instance, for possessing great power of eloquence). The work consists of sixteen books that cover the time from the founders of the Danish people (Dan I of Denmark) till Saxo's own time, ending around 1185 (with the submission of Pomerania), when the last part is supposedly written. The work thus covers the entire history of Denmark until Saxo's own time, seen under a somewhat glorified perspective, from heathen times with tales of Odin and the gods of Valhalla to the times of Absalon, who probably directly influenced the sections on the history of his own time, working closely with Saxo himself. Apart from that, the work contains the first known written narration of the legend of Hamlet (Amleth, the son who took revenge for his murdered father). It is most likely this narrative of Saxo's, which he based on an oral tale, that forms the basis for Shakespeare's "Hamlet", which takes place in Helsinore in Denmark. There is fairly certain evidence that Shakespeare knew Saxo's work on the History of Denmark and thus, from that, the legend of Amleth.The editio princeps was printed in Paris in 1514, the second edition being printed in Basel in 1534.LN 1450 - Adams S 532 - Thesaurus 190.

[30], 1194, [64] pp. Woodcut portrait of the author on title verso, two folding plates, folding table, woodcut initials, and several woodcut illustrations and diagrams in text (2 full page).

Provenanve: Giovanni Battista Pinelli (old ink inscription on title). ---- Norman 402; DSB III, p.66; Dibner 139 (note); NLM/Durling 844; Duveen 117; Wellcome I, 1298. The first octavo edition of Cardano¿s immense encyclopedia, published the same year as Petri's folio edition. De rerum varietate is a continuation of Cardano's 1550 De subtilitate; "the two works, written in an elliptical and often obscure Latin, contain a little of everything: from cosmology to the construction of machines; from the usefulness of natural sciences to the evil influence of demons; from the laws of mechanics to cryptology. It is a mine of facts, both real and imaginary; of notes on the state of the sciences; of superstition, technology, alchemy, and various branches of the occult. The similarities between the scientific opinions expressed by Cardano in these two works and those of Leonardo da Vinci, at that time unpublished, has led some historians, particularly Pierre Duhem, to suppose that Cardano has used Leonardo's manuscript notes; others insist that the similarity is entirely coincidental. Be that as it may, Cardano must always be credited with having introduced new ideas that inspired new investigations." (DSB). - Visit our website for additional images and information.
