Description du livre : In aedib, Aldi, et Andreae Asulani Soceri,, Venice, 1513. Small 8vo. Full-grained red morocco, spine ribbed with gilt title, richly gilt inner dentelles, g.e. (CHAMBOLLE-DURU). With Aldus' woodcut dolphin and anchor device on title, with the legend "AL" and "DUS" on either side. [16], 373, [1], [2 blank] pp. Editio princeps (Brunet: "très recherchée") of Pindarus' poetry together with the "Hymns" of Callimachus, Dionysius's "De Situ Orbis", and the poem "Alexandra" by Lycophron. The preface by Aldus to Andrea Navagero is of great interest. After giving a survey of the war that ravaged Italy and had caused Aldus to suspend his printing activities, Aldus discusses the work he has already done for literature and reflects on his future plans. We also learn from it that he is already active as a printer for twenty years, so he must have started around 1493. The edition princeps of Pindarus is one of the most beautiful and important works produced by Aldus Manuzio the Elder. The book is printed in a fine Greek type, slightly larger than Aldus usually choose for his small pocket editions, with 26 lines to a page, and with the headings printed in capitals, as are the titles inbetween. The pages are numbered on rectos only, skipping a number so counting pages, not leaves. The collation is - unusual as well - given in numbers. Small guide-letters are printed in the in initial spaces. It was also a very good text-edition. The present and the edition of 1515 with the scholia was used for almost all subsequent Pindarus-editions. Our copy is furthermore most elegantly bound in gilt red morocco. Fine copy.

Description du livre : In aedibus Aldi et Andreae Asulani Soceri, 1524. Hardcover. État : Fine. Octavo: I. 16.2 x 10 cm. II. 15.9 x 10 cm. [1-7]8, A-Z8, AA-LL8, MM6 II. A-z8, A-H8, I4 THIRD ALDINE EDITION. The first volume, the Iliad, also includes Herodotus' life of Homer. The second volume comprises the Odyssey and Homeric Hymns. This edition reprints Aldus' letters to Girolamo Aleandro from the first Aldine edition. This set was once the property of the Greek diplomat, scholar, and book collector Johannes Gennadius (1844-1932), whose 26,000 volume personal library forms the core of the Gennadeion, the library of the American School for Classical Studies in Athens. Volume II once belonged to the Scottish antiquary and librarian David Laing and sold as lot 1529 in his sale at Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge, 12 May 1879, to Gennadius, who had it rebound to match his copy of Volume I. The set was sold as lot 1525 in the Gennadius sale at the same house, 28 March 1895. With the bookplates of Giorgio di Veroli (sale, Parke-Bernet, 28 February 1956, lot 433). Adams H-745; Ahmanson-Murphy 226; Renouard 98:1; Brunet III, p. 269; Graesse III, 326; Hoffmann ii 460 The first volume is bound in contemporary Italian black morocco, rebacked, the boards blind-ruled in compartments, with the central compartment framed by a scrolling floral roll and decorated with additional gold tools at the center and corners. The single word ILIAS in Greek is tooled in gold at the head of the upper board. The second volume is bound to match in 19th c. black morocco. The edges of both volumes have been gilded. These are both tall copies; the Iliad volume being a few millimeters taller. The first volume is particularly fresh, and both volumes have only minor blemishes. The title and final few leaves of the second volume are lightly soiled and there are minor paper repairs to the tips of the upper blank corners of the first few leaves. With the Aldine anchor and dolphin device (A6) on the title page and the verso of the final leaf in each volume. The text is printed in Greek throughout, except for the two Latin letters by Aldus.

Description du livre : Venise Alessandro Paganini 1515, 1515. In-24 (95 x 50 mm) de 202 ff.ch. et 1 f.n.ch. ; demi-veau brun, dos lisse orné de filets, chaînettes et rosettes dorées, plats recouverts de papier marbré, petits coins de vélin (reliure du début du XIXe siècle). Mambelli, 26 : "Rara ed." ; Brunet, II, 502 ; Sander, 2323 ; Essling, 540 ; voir aussi le catalogue de l'exposition "Alessandro Paganini tipografo a Toscolano (1517-1538)", Toscolano, Fondazione Valle delle Cartiere, 2008, p. 43, n° 36. Édition très rare de la Divine comédie, la première de très petit format. Cette petite merveille typographique sort des presses d'Alessandro Paganini, illustre imprimeur italien à qui l'on doit l'invention de la notion de collection éditoriale, c'est-à-dire d'ouvrages conçus dans le même format et avec la même présentation typographique. L'ouvrage a été imprimé en caractères minuscules, italiques et semi-gothiques, dessinés et fondus par Paganini lui-même. Il en existe deux tirages, l'un paginé en chiffres arabes – c'est le cas de notre exemplaire –, l'autre en chiffres romains. La courte dédicace latine de l'imprimeur au cardinal Giulio de' Medici, futur Clément VII, nous apprend que le De remediis de Pétrarque dédié par Paganini à Léon X le 30 novembre 1515 – imprimé dans le même format et avec les mêmes types – avait paru peu de temps avant ce "dantino", qui a sans doute été publié au début de l'année 1516. L'ouvrage est illustré de quatre jolis bois gravés occupant les trois derniers feuillets : un plan de l'enfer sur double page, et trois schémas des péchés et des punitions correspondantes dont on attribue l'invention à l'humaniste Pietro Bembo (1470-1547). Le plan de l'enfer est signé des initiales I.A., sans doute Iohannes Andrea, ce qui permet d'attribuer ce bois à Giovanni Andrea Vavassore, célèbre graveur et imprimeur vénitien qui, au début du XVIe siècle, passa de la réalisation de cartes géographiques à l'imprimerie, domaine dans lequel il s'illustra jusqu'en 1573. "The remarkable distinguishing characteristic of Paganini's first collection was their small format. In fact, the 1515 edition of Dante in the very compact 24mo is unique among editions of Dante in the Renaissance. It was part of a series begun in the same year which included Petrarch's Rime, Jacopo Sannazaro's Arcadia and Pietro Bembo's Neoplatonic love dialogue, Gli Asolani. This editorial program can be considered an elaboration on Aldus' innovations at the beginning of the century, both for the small format and for the elegant characters which are midway between italic and roman. The choice of works also follows Aldus. Their intended courtly audience is clearly indicated by the persons to whom the individual titles are dedicated, embracing some of the most prominent figures of the Italian High Renaissance courtly society, including Isabella d'Este, Giovanni Aurelio Augurello, and Pietro Bembo" (cf. "Renaissance Dante in Print", cat. d'exposition en ligne). Alessandro Paganini et son père se transférèrent ensuite de Venise à Toscolano – la Benacum des Romains, sur les rives du lac de Garde –, où ils exercèrent l'art typographique entre 1519 et 1538. Ils y imprimèrent notamment une autre édition de Dante, de format in-8. Le Dante de Paganini se rencontre généralement en état très moyen et dans des reliures tardives. Notre exemplaire, sobrement relié au début du XIXe siècle, présente quelques taches et rousseurs sans gravité. Suite à une erreur d'imposition, le couteau du relieur a effleuré les premières lettres du texte imprimé au verso du feuillet 201, et la marge intérieure du premier feuillet a été renforcée. Le plan de l'enfer est un peu court de marges, comme toujours. Quelques annotations et soulignures anciennes à la plume. N° de réf. du libraire 13832

Description du livre : [Venice, House of Aldus and Andrea of Asola, September 1513]. Folio. A lovely late 17th or early 18th century full calf, beautifully re-backed to style with raised bands and elegant blindstamped ornametations. Boards with lovely blindstamp-decorations, in style constituting a forerunner of the Cambridge-style binding. A very nice, clean, and fresh copy with the often lacking final leaf with the large woodcut Aldine anchor-dolphin device to verso. Woodcut printer's device to title-page as well. Without the blank A9 (almost always removed when bound). (4), 3-281, (3) pp. The scarce editio princeps of Alexander of Aphrodisias' extremely influential commentary of Aristotle's "Topics", which is responsible for our understanding and utilization of this most fundamental text for the thought of mankind. Aristotle's "Topics" occupies an absolutely central place in the development of science and philosophy since Antiquity. It is this work that sets the boundaries for what we can meaningfully talk about, and even how to talk about it. Through the "topics" mankind will be able to state the true premises that form the foundation upon we build science and philosophy. Alexander's commentary on this fundamental work is the most important and influential that we have. It was of the utmost importance to Renaissance philosophy, science, scholarship and learning, and it greatly influenced the path of Aristotelian scholarship as well as almost all original thought and philosophy within this period. Alexander came to influence all reading of Aristotle in the Renaissance and with his commentary on the "Topics", he came to profoundly influence our understanding of the first principles of thought as well as the dialectical and philosophical training that is necessary for our understanding of them. Without the "topics" of Aristotle, we cannot be certain that we are discussing that which we ought to be discussing. Aristotle's "Topics" provides us with the general basis for all forms of inquiry; as he himself states: "Our treatise proposes to find a line of inquiry whereby we shall be able to reason from opinions that are generally accepted about every problem propounded to us, and also shall ourselves, when standing up to an argument that, avoid saying anything that will obstruct us." (Topica 110a18-22, in Ross' translation, Oxford, 1928). "Alexander of Aphrodisias was the leading ancient commentator on Aristotle in the Aristotelian school. He wrote around AD 200, more than five hundred years after Aristotle's death. His commentaries had an immense influence first on the Neoplatonist school and then on Medieval Philosophy in Islam and eventually in the Latin West. His commentary on "Topics" Book 1 opens the door on a major argument between the Stoics and the Aristotelians on how to think of syllogistic. He discusses how to define Aristotelian syllogistic and why it stands up against the rival Stoic theory of inference." (Richard Sorabji, Preface to Ophuijsen's Translation of Alexander's commentary, in the "Ancient Commentators on Aristotle"-series, ed. by Sorabji. p. (IX).).It is a curious but generally accepted conception that with the rise of the Renaissance came the fall of Aristotle. Whether this is actually true can be disputed, but it is a fact that with the recovery of many lost works of ancient literature, the widening of the range of classical studies and the renewed interest in Plato, Aristotle was no longer the sole authority on a huge number of fields. That this should mean a total ignorance of the teachings of Aristotle must be considered somewhat of a myth (though a very frequently repeated one), and in fact with the grand humanists of the late 15th and early 16th century, the study of Aristotle fits perfectly with the broader comprehension of scholarship. The great humanists like Ficino, Pico and Pomponazzi had not forgotten about Aristotle, and the revival of learning did not mean the neglect of the prince of philosophers. On the contrar.

Description du livre : Venice: Aldus Manutius, November 1503, 1503. Aldine octavo (149 × 93 mm). 19th-century French red straight-grained morocco by Thouvenin, covers panelled with gilt fillets and blind foliate tooling, gilt spine, gilt edges, green silk marker. Extremities lightly rubbed, occasional very light browning at head, an excellent copy. Collation as Ahmanson-Murphy. Woodcut device on title, repeated on final verso. Greek type 4:79 (text), roman 10:82 (title, register and colophon only). First Aldine edition, a handsome copy. Based on the 1494 editio princeps edited by Janus Lascaris, this was the second edition of the anthology assembled by the early 14th century Constantinopolitan monk Planudes, with additions including the editio princeps of the 6th-century Byzantine poem "In Thermas Pythias et aquarum miracula" by Paulos Silentiarius. Planudes' recension of the Anthology was the only collection of ancient Greek epigrams known to the west until the discovery of the Palatine codex in 1606. The Anthology is based on the lost compilation of Meleager of Gadara (1st century BCE), whose title, The Garland, reflected the common comparison of small beautiful poems to flowers; hence the Greek anthologia ("flower-gathering"; Latin florilegium), which metaphoric use led to the modern sense of the English "anthology".

Description du livre : Venezia Agostino Zani 1511, 1511. The Rare First Illustrated Edition of the Caesar's Commentaries, a core classical text of the Roman period. With a fine woodcut on the title leaf (92 x 120, from the 1493 Livy, within red woodcut border), repeated on the first leaf of text (within an altogether different woodcut border, in black), and one of the approximately the same size on f. 51; twelve smaller woodcuts (each appx. 56 x 74 mm), one at the beginning of each chapter. Folio (mm 314x210) , contemporary Italian half goatskin over wooden boards, goatskin on the sides with blind-ruled geometric designs, a pair of scallop-shaped brass fore-edge catches on front cover, vellum half pastedowns cut from a 14th-century theological manuscript, without the claps. A very handsome copy of this rare illustrated work. RARE AND IMPORTANT FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF ONE OF THE GREAT CLASSICS. The title woodcut depicts a battle scene; the second large woodcut shows Lentulus seated addressing the Senate. The woodblocks depicted, were first used in Giunta’s 1493 edition of Livy and were immensely successful and consequently passed on from printer to printer. Considered very rare. A superbly illustrated edition of Cæsar, apparently the first illustrated Cæsar published in Italy. The title woodcut is strongly reminiscent of Uscello's great tryptich, "The Battle of San Romano," and the spare line of the woodcuts at the head of each chapter is perhaps inspired by Aldus' HYPNEROTOMACHIA POLIPHILI (1499). The text was edited by L. Panaetius. The Duc de Rivoli (Livres a figures Venitiens, p. 160) records a similar edition printed at the same press in 1517 but does not mention this one. A highly important book and a very desirable copy. N° de réf. du libraire 25712

Description du livre : Venice, Aldus & Asolanus 1513 (following the Venecian calendar; according to the usual European calendar 1514)., 1514. Hardcover. État : Fine. 1st Edition. 8vo. (8), 99 lvs., (1) leaf, 152 lvs. With Aldus’ device (Fletcher Nr. 5) on title and last leaf verso. 16th century gilt-stamped vellum (darkened, soiled, rubbed); new end-papers and fly leaves, lacking ties. First Aldus edition of Strozzis’ poems, first edition of most of the complete works; scarce. PROVENENCE: The reverse of the title page has an autograph in the form of a six-line dedication to the two Strozzis from Daniel Finus; leaf A8 verso also has a longer laudation to Aldus Manutius by him written in manuscript. Both were published only in the 20th century (A. della Guardia: Tito Vespasiano Strozzi. 1916, p. LVIII, and S. Pasquazi, Poeti estensi. 1966). Daniele Fini, born in Ferrara 1470, son of an Fini „Hadrianus" Fino. Like his father before him, he took on political functions in his home city (Chamberlain and University Chancellor) but his main interest was literature. His principle writing activities were chiefly in composing poems in Latin and Italian (see Michaud XIV, 138 and Barotti / Barotti / Baruffaldi: Memorie istoriche de letterati Ferraresi. Vol. I. p. 133 ff). He was a member of Ferrara's humanistic circle and was one of Strozzi's closer friends. The copy of the work here is very likely to be a VOLUME OF DANIELE FINI'S POSSESSION, in which he wrote his poems. FOR FULL DESCRIPTION PLEASE VISIT ON OUR WEBSITE "THE SPECIAL OFFER". The decoration of the binding presents an outer frame with a closely set, slightly spirally winding pattern, copied from Greek art. Centrally there is a floral design, and also floral decoration in the corners of the frame. Light browning throughout (a few leaves somewhat more so) and finger marks mainly concerning the bottom outside page edges; occasional mould or water stains (but mostly to outside edges), two pages with small amount of damage to paper at the lower bottom white margin. On the whole, an unusual document with reference to Humanism in Ferrara and in an extremely rare contemporary binding. Censimento 16 CNCE 37457; Renouard / Ald. I, 98; Fletcher p. 111; Cat.

Collation: *4, (lacking blank *4), a[alpha]-z[zeta]8, aa[2alpha]-tt[2tau]8, uu[2upsilon]10 FIRST ALDINE EDITION. This is the second edition in Greek, following the editio princeps printed by Giunta in 1517. The text was edited by Francesco Asulano, Andrea Torresani's son and Aldus' brother-in-law. Renouard, citing Johann Jacob Reiske, reports that there are apparently two editions of this date that differ in a number of textual points. The first Aldine edition appears to have been formed on the preceding of Giunta; the second differs greatly from it, exhibits a purer text, and was the basis for the Basel and Stephanus editions.' It is unclear which of the two variants our copy represents. Plutarch's Parallel Lives, a series of paired biographies in which the lives of famous Greeks and Romans are compared, is one of the signal achievements of classical literature. Renouard, p. 87, no. 9; New UCLA 182; Hoffmann III, 175; Schweiger p. 259, col. 2 Bound in eighteenth-century mottled sheepskin with a citron morocco label, gilt. A fine copy of the Aldine Plutarch with minor faults. The text is printed throughout in Greek, with capital spaces and printed guide letters at the beginning of each life. With the Aldine anchor and dolphin device on the title page and the verso of the final leaf. The title is a little soiled and there are discreetly backed tears in the margins of the first three leaves. A short worm trail has been expertly repaired in the final three signatures, very slightly affecting the text. There are also discreet repairs to the blank, upper corners of the final leaves. The margins of many of the lives have been heavily annotated in Greek and Latin by an unidentified 16th c. reader. N° de réf. du libraire 2105D

Venice: apud Aldum, April 1502. 296 x 201 mm. 18th or early 19th cent. gilt-ruled calf, a little rubbed, rebacked preserving original gilt spine. Fine copy.Editio princeps. Pollux, a Greek grammarian and sophist from Alexandria, was appointed professor of rhetoric at the Academy in Athens by the Roman Emperor Commodus (son of Marcus Aurelius). According to Philostratus's Lives of the Sophists, Pollux was given this post on account of his melodious voice. Pollux was the author of numerous rhetorical works, of which only a few titles survive, and the Onomasticon, a thesaurus of Attic Greek synonyms and phrases arranged thematically in ten books. "It supplies in passing much rare and valuable information on many points of classical antiquity- objects in daily life, the theater, politics- and quotes numerous fragments of lost works. Pollux was probably the person satirized by Lucian as a worthless and ignorant person who gains a reputation as an orator by sheer effrontery, and pilloried in his Lexiphanes, a satire upon the affectation of obscure and obsolete words" (Encyclopaedia Britannica [1999]). The editio princeps of Pollux's Onomasticon, issued by Aldus Manutius in 1502, made the work widely available to Renaissance scholars and antiquaries, and anatomists of the period drew on the Onomasticon for obscure Greek words to describe parts of the body. The Onomasticon was a valuable source of information for several important nineteenth century works of classical scholarship, and has continued to attract the interest of researchers in a variety of fields-in 2004, John H. Dierkx published an article on "Dermatologic terms in the Onomasticon of Julius Pollux" in The American Journal of Dermatopathology. Adams P-1787. Ahmanson-Murphy 54. Renouard, pp. 32-33.

Description du livre : Aldus & Andrea Asulani Sorceri,, Venice, 1522. 8vo. Contemporary limp vellum with title in ink on spine, parts of ties preserved. Woodcut Aldine printer's device on title and verso of last leaf. [12], 262 [=260], [2] ll. Rare first and only Aldine edition of the first printed work on ancient Roman coinage and weights & measures, written by the great French humanist Guillaume Budé. This pioneering study of Roman coinage was the best book on the subject written up to that time. It was this work which gained Budé the greatest reputation. Though his activities were varied, his reputation as a humanist of the greatest erudition was established in 1515 with the publication of De asse et partibus eius: a treatise on Roman coinage. The treatise, however, also contains a manifesto arguing for the necessity of humanism in a Christian education. Budé argues that the truly educated Christian must study not just the Bible and the writings of the church fathers, but all types and forms of knowledge (also on coinage) so that he may recognize truth when he sees it. Although recognized by Budé's contemporaries as a valuable restatement of humanist aims and principles, De asse also attracted criticism because of its heavy, obscure, and ornate style. According to Brunet and Renouard a copy of this work was printed on vellum for the famous bibliophile Jean Grolier (1479-1565), to whom this book is dedicated. This Aldine edition was preceded by two others, printed in Paris in 1514 and 1516 respectively by Badius Ascensius. A French extract of this work appeared in 1522 at Galliot de Pré in Paris, the Italian translation was printed in 1562 at Giunta in Florence.Guillaume Budé (1468-1540) was a French scholar. He went to the University of Orléans to study law, but for several years, being possessed of ample means, he led an idle and dissipated life. When about 24 years of age he was seized with a sudden passion for study, and made rapid progress, particularly in the Latin and Greek languages. He was held in high esteem by Francis I, who was persuaded by him, and by Jean du Bellay, bishop of Narbonne, to found the Collegium Trilingue, afterwards the Collège de France, and the library at Fontainebleau, which was removed to Paris and was the origin of the Bibliothèque Nationale. He also induced Francis to refrain from prohibiting printing in France, which had been advised by the Sorbonne in 1533. Guillaume Budé corresponded with the most learned men of his time, amongst them Erasmus, who called him the 'marvel of France', and Thomas More. Fine copy, with contemp. ms. annotations ink.

Description du livre : Paris: Josse Bade for himself and Jean Petit, 27 May 1518, 1518. Folio (336 × 237 mm), complete with final blank. Contemporary blind-stamped calf over wooden boards with partially bevelled edges sewn on four double cords, metal clasps and catches. Skilfully rebacked with original spine laid down and corners repaired, front free endpaper renewed, occasional later pencil or ink marginalia, small worm trace (diminishing in size) to outer margin of first 4 leaves, a few small stains, occasional minor spotting, but generally crisp and clean internally, a handsome copy in a contemporary blind-stamped binding, probably of Parisian execution. Title and woodcut printer's device within elaborate woodcut architectural border, handsome criblé initials. Provenance: (1) from the library of Johann Rudolph von Erlach (1577–1628), with ink presentation inscription to lower outer corner of title recording its gift in 1609 by Michael Augspurger of Bern and with letterpress book label "Bibliotheque de Spietz" (Schloss Spietz, seat of the von Erlach family) to front pastedown; (2) ownership inscription of Fritz Baur of Basel, dated 1878 to front pastedown, above (3) ink inscription recording posthumous gift from W. Baur to (4) Dr. S. V. Rasmussen of Basel, dated 2 April 1925. The first Plato published by Josse Bade (Jodocus Badius Ascensius) and Jean Petit (Parvus). One of the four important librairies-jurés to the University of Paris, Petit helped Bade, an associate of Erasmus, establish his own press in 1503 and the partnership flourished, producing a stream of finely printed translations of the classics and editions of contemporary writers in the first three decades of the century. Bade's printing shop and bookshop on the rue Saint-Jacques became an important meeting place for French humanists and for foreign scholars like Thomas Grey and Thomas Lupset, who had been Erasmus's students. The text is the famous Latin translation of Marsilio Ficino which, on its first publication at Florence in 1484, was the first printed edition of Plato's works, long preceding the Greek editio princeps published by Aldus in 1513. The volume also includes the pseudo-Platonic dialogue Axiochus by Rodolphus Agricola, and Agostino Dati's version of the pseudo-Platonic Halcyon. "Marsilio Ficino (1433–1499) [was] the great Renaissance champion of Plato from a Christian point of view and the leader of those who wished to effect an accommodation between Platonism (or more accurately Neoplatonism) and Christianity, as the most distinguished of Plato's several Medicean apologists His enthusiasm for Plato and the Platonic tradition did not blind him to the various differences with Christianity, even to their irreconcilability on certain fundamental issues. Indeed, his willingness openly to confront these differences made him all the more credible and persuasive as an apologist for Plato and for the value of the Platonic tradition as a philosophical propaedeutic to the study of Christian theology" (Michael J. B. Allen, "Marsilio Ficino on Plato, the Neoplatonists and the Christian Doctrine of the Trinity", Renaissance Quarterly, vol. 37, no. 4 (winter 1984), pp. 555–584).

Description du livre : Rome: Zacharias Callierges, 1516. a little light toning and spotting, ff. [88], [116], 8vo, early nineteenth-century mid-brown polished calf, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco lettering piece, edges red, marbled endpapers, corners slightly worn, joints near-invisibly strengthened and front flyleaf re-attached, bookplate of Thomas Gaisford and letter from Earl Spencer to Gaisford glued to front endpapers, Gaisford’s ownership inscription and manuscript table of contents to blank endpapers, good The first edition of Theocritus to include the scholia (the fourth edition overall), and also the second book ever printed in Greek at Rome. Callierges, a Cretan native, printed initially at Venice but in the early 1510s moved to Rome, probably at the invitation of Pope Leo X, and had a fount of Greek type cast. With it he printed Pindar in 1515, and then this edition of Theocritus in January 1516. ‘As a printer of Greek, the achievements of Callierges are second only to those of Aldus. As an engraver of Greek type, he is in a class by himself. Only the potent commercial force of the Aldine press and the magic homogeneity of Griffo’s types have obscured its fame’ (Barker, Aldus Manutius and the Development of Greek Script and Type, p. 75).This copy belonged to Thomas Gaisford (1779-1855), Regius Professor of Greek and later Dean of Christ Church, Oxford. It was given to Gaisford in January 1815 by the collector George John Spencer, 2nd Earl Spencer - the prime mover in the creation of the Roxburghe Club - and his letter presenting the volume is tipped in. He writes: ‘Having understood from Mr Grenville that you are desirous of referring to the edition of Theocritus printeed by Callierges & having fortunately a duplicate copy of that book by me; I have desired Mr Bliss who is returning from here to Oxford to take charge of the volume, & beg you would do me the favour to accept it. The copy was in my original library here & formerly belonged to Dr George the headmaster of Eton. It is not in very firm preservation, but will I hope be looked upon by you as a mute testimony of the respect with which I remain, sir, your very obedient humble servent, Spencer’. Gaisford was then in the process of editing Theocritus for his collection of Poetae Minores Graeci (1816), in which he also printed the scholia and added a useful critical apparatus. He presumably arranged for the current binding to fix the ‘not very firm preservation’ that Spencer describes. (Adams T460; Dibdin II 485; CNCE 32693). N° de réf. du libraire 51683

Complete with blank leaves i2 and H7. SECOND ALDINE EDITION (first 1502), the first illustrated Aldine edition. The first Aldine Dante appeared in 1502, edited by Pietro Bembo. Aldus himself is believed to have prepared this second edition of Dante, which appeared shortly after his death in 1515. The title page announces the inclusion of the new map (the location, shape, and size) of the Inferno. The map -a cross-section of the Inferno- was inspired by the illustrations in Girolamo Benivieni's (1453-1542) Giunta edition of 1506. Aldus also incorporated variant readings included by Benivieni in the Giuntina. The volume opens with a dedicatory epistle by Andrea Torresani, Aldus' partner and father-in-law, to the celebrated Vittoria Colonna (1490-1547). Renouard, p. 73, no. 8; Ahmanson-Murphy 136; Adams D-88 Bound in 19th c. green morocco, paneled and tooled in gold, with a large central stamp of the Aldine device in gold on both boards. The contents are in fine condition. The top margin is cut a bit close in the final signature, just shaving the woodcut rule of the diagrams and illustration. With the bookplate of the Reverend Edward Francis Witts (1813-86). With woodcut schematic diagrams of the sins punished in the Inferno and the moral scheme of Purgatory, as well as a double-paged woodcut illustration of the Inferno, based on the researches of Antonio Manetti (1423-1497).

[Colophon:] Venice: Per Simonem de Luere, 1506, final blank discarded, ff. 73, folio, later vellum, spine and fore-edge lettered in ink, a little bit darkened and rumpled, very good The first Aldine edition of Origen, containing homilies on the Old Testament in a Latin translation by Jerome. A couple of incunable printings of various short works preceded this edition, but Origen was a dangerous author to be associated with, since Jerome himself had alleged him to be a heretic. When Pico della Mirandola attempted a revival in 1486 it resulted in his own arrest for heresy, and only in 1493 was Pico pardoned, freeing other humanists to investigate Origen’s works. This Aldine edition marked the beginning of the new understanding and was immediately followed by a number of other printings of works by Origen, including the first collected works in 1512 and Erasmus’s edition, published shortly after his death. For Aldus the edition is significant in containing the first appearance of the large-format dolphin device, and also a preface acknowledging the partnership of Aldus’s father-in-law for the first time.Bound with it is a rare printing from this significant period of another exegetical work by Origen, also printed in Jerome’s Latin translation, by Simon de Luere of Venice. This text, on Romans, does not survive in the original Greek (the homilies in the Aldine edition saw their Greek editio princeps in the seventeenth century). An early owner has taken advantage of the new freedom around Origen’s works and read substantial sections of this copy carefully. A number of leaves have frequent annotation in a careful hand in the margins on both sides of the text. Many appear to be keywords but the quantity is greater than usual and others add details or summarise passages. If nothing else, the interests of the reader are made relatively clear: in the table of contents of the first work, every reference to the Pope in the contents of the homily on Leviticus is called out.

Description du livre : Aldus, 1501; Paris: Simon Colines, Venice, 1501. Hardcover. The First Octavo Juvenal, and one of the Earliest Books in Aldus' New Italic Typeface. 165 x 102 mm (6 1/2 x 4"). Juvenal: [78] leaves; Catullus: 167, [1] pp. Two separately published works in one volume. First Aldine Edition of Juvenal; reprint of Aldine 1502 Edition of Catullus. Pleasing early--and very probably contemporary--calf, covers with a blind-ruled mitered frame, lower cover with 19th century blindstamped coat of arms (probably German) at center, raised bands, top compartment and a thin strip at bottom of spine expertly renewed, ties missing, PASTEDOWNS FROM A MID-13TH CENTURY MANUSCRIPT with extensive contemporary marginalia (see below). Front free endpaper with early ink inscription "Antonius Dulworth(?) ex dono fratris . . . " and with modern bookplate of Gerald Mander of Tettenhall Wood in Staffordshire; front flyleaf with inscription of Henry Bracegirdle (who bought this volume in Oxford on 6 December 1660); title page with 17th century inscription of Edward Palmer, King's College Oxford; marginalia throughout in Bracegirdle's hand, including an index at the end. Juvenal: Renouard, pp. 29-30; Ahmanson-Murphy 36. Catullus: Renouard, "Simon de Colines," p. 132; Schreiber 52. A handful of small abrasions to front cover, joints and extremities a little rubbed, but the binding sound and rather appealing as a lucky survival without much wear. Two leaves with short closed marginal tears, half-inch wormtrail at tail of gutter on last four leaves, other trivial imperfections, but A REMARKABLY FINE COPY INTERNALLY, the leaves clean and fresh, the Juvenal notably bright. This is a fine copy of the first octavo edition of Juvenal and one of the first books in the new italic typeface, instituted in imitation of the cursive hand in fashion at the time and perfectly suited for the small format editions popularized by Aldus. The collection of 16 satires by the great Roman poet Juvenal (ca. 60 - ca. 130) and six satires by the short lived Stoic Persius (34-62) has provided inspiration for a number of poets intent upon denouncing the vices of society. Among many other examples, Johnson's "London" clearly borrows from Juvenal's third satire, which shows Megalopolis (i.e., Rome) as the seat of vice and corruption. Reflecting Aldus' sustaining commercial goal of providing modestly priced portable editions of the classics to a wide audience, our volume apparently represents the first octavo edition of these satires, and Schweiger points out that the volume comprises a new recension of the text, taken from manuscripts and earlier editions. The work is typographically important as one of the earliest books to appear in italic type. Updike says that "the first books printed in the new font were the Virgil and Juvenal of 1501," and he reproduces the opening page of our text as an example of the new typeface, instituted in imitation of the cursive hand in fashion at the time and perfectly suited for the small format popular editions mentioned above. (In addition to the Virgil, issued in April, and our Juvenal, published in August, Renouard lists a Horace, issued in May of 1501 as the earliest italic printings.) Renouard indicates that there were two Aldine editions dated 1501: our printing (without the printer's famous anchor on the title) and one with the anchor present; the latter edition actually appeared several years later (STC Italian suggests 1515). Like the 1995 auction copy (in 19th century boards, sold at Christie's for £3,910) our copy has two stocks of paper; one bears an "A" watermark very close to, and perhaps identical with, Briquet 7919, while the other matches Briquet 9547. The Juvenal is preceded by a reprint of the 1502 Aldus edition of the Latin elegiac poets Catullus, Tibullus, and Propertius (all first century B.C.) from Parisian printer Simon de Colines (1480-1546). Colines married the widow of the remowned printer Henri Estienne and operated the Estienne press until 1526, when Henri's son Robert took over the busi. N° de réf. du libraire ST12442

Modern speckled brown calf in 16th-century style, frontcover with Aldus' printer's device stamped in gold, ribbed spine lettered in gilt. Title and final page with Aldus' woodcut printer's device. [242] ll. Second edition, published posthumously, of Pontanus' collected works. The first edition was published in Venice, during his lifetime, in 1501.Giovanni Pontano (1429-1503) is an Italian poet, historian, and statesman, who used also the Latin form Jovianus Pontanus. He was protected by Alfonso of Aragón, who made him his chancellor of Naples (1447) and later his secretary. He was one of the leading statesmen of Naples, serving the Aragonese kings as tutor, secretary, councillor and diplomat. Pontano personally surrendered Naples to the French invaders. A noted humanist, he discovered Donatus' commentary on Vergil. His verse, in Latin, is notable for its grace, harmony, variety of subject matter, and natural expression of sentiment, reflecting the diversity of interests and knowledge of the Renaissance. His supple and easy Latin style is considered, with that of Politian, to be the best of Renaissance Italy. He wrote Latin as if it were his native tongue, with unusual flexibility, smoothness, and humour. Pontano studied language and literature in Perugia. From 1447 to 1495 he served the Aragonese kings of Naples as adviser, military secretary, and, after 1486, chancellor, an office he handled with great distinction. He was dismissed in 1495 for negotiating peace with the French and, though pardoned, did not return to power.Pontano became a major literary figure in Naples after 1471 when he assumed leadership of the city's humanist academy. Called the Accademia Pontaniana, it became one of the major Italian literary academies of the 15th century."Un des écrivains les plus élégants du quinzième siècle italien, . Pontano fut un très grand poète néo-latin. Certains lui ont reproché d'avoir dans ses poésies amoureuses introduit autant d'obscénités que les Anciens, mais personne ne lui conteste la pureté de son style, sa fécondité et la grande varieté de ses conaissances" (Oberlé). "Pontano, the most important humanist of fifteenth-century Naples, composed many works of poetry, social commentary, and philosophy. His poems . celebrated human love and the wonders of nature" (Bietenholz). In the Ciceronianus Erasmus himself praised Pontano profusely, but denied that he was truly a Ciceronian, for he used many words not found in Cicero. Apart from a few unobtrusive small defects a fine, well-bound copy.

Description du livre : Antonius Dumaeus,, Antwerp, 1542. 8vo. Extraordinary well preserved contemporary blind tooled pigskin binding; rolls with square and oval portraits and panels with passion scenes and saints on both covers; floral motives are stamped in the central spaces of the covers and in the four compartments of the spine; in the middle of the front cover, between two paragraph signs, the initials 'E' and 'K' are stamped and decorated with black ink. Some woodcut initials. 3 fly-leaves, 494, (40) pp. and 3 fly-leaves. This rare Antwerp edition of the Letters by Plinius Secundus is virtually a reprint of the edition by Johannes Sichardt published in 1530 by Andreas Cratander at Basel. Sichardt (ca. 1499-1552) was since 1527 professor in Rhetoric in Basel. His dedicatory letter to Georgius Ilsungus (ca. 1510-1580), dated Augsburg, March 1530, is reprinted here also. Although the editio princeps of these famous letters was printed at Venice in 1471, all later editions, including the 1530 edition at Basel, are based on the Aldus edition of 1508 which added many new letters. Also the dedicatory letter by Aldus Manutius to Aloisius Mocenicus, a Venetian senator who had brought some manuscripts of the letters from France to Venice, is re-printed in our present edition.Writing in the first century AD, the younger Pliny (ca. 61-112 AD) was in a position to provide essential information for historians of a poorly documented period: the reigns of Domitian, Nerva and Trajan. In his letters he comments elegantly on social, domestic, juridical and political events. His remarks on the early Christians are well-known and are very important. Nine books of his personal letters - 247 in all - survive, as well as his official correspondence with the emperor Trajan, posthumously published and later added as the tenth book. These official letters are a major source for understanding Roman provincial government.Of his speeches delivered during his successful senatorial career only the one of thanks to Trajan for his consulship in AD 100 survives and is known as the Panegyricus Traiano Augusto dictus, and is added on p. 321-405 of our edition.Also included are:On p. 405-448: SUETONIUS TRANQUILLIUS, De viris illustribus liber. Suetonius (c. 69- c. 130 AD) was a contemporary of Pliny the younger and is refered to in the letters of Pliny through whose patronage Suetonius had a military cereer in Britain and Bithynia. His De viris illustribus, a now incomplete set of biographies of Roman men of letters is arranged in categories: poets, orators, historians, philosophers. On p. 449-468 follow the categories grammarians and rhetoricians, published separately.On p. 468-494: JULIUS OBSEQUENS, Ab anno urbis conditae quingentesimoquinto, prodigiorum liber imperfectus. Obsequens, the tabulator of Roman prodigies most plausibly lived in the 4th or early 5th century AD. His collection, based on the historical works of Livy, covers prodigies from 249 to 12 BC and is extant for 190-12 BC.Further are added on 40 unnumbered pages:p. (1)-(8): Latina interpretatio dictionum & sententiarum Graecarum quae hoc in volumine habentur.p. (9)-(17): Index of the letters and famous men, grammarians and rhetoricians.p.

Description du livre : Vinegia Figlioli di Aldo (Aldus) 1545, 1545. A very early and rare printing of Castiglione by Aldus in the original folio format mirroring the 1528 printing. Elaborate Aldine device impressed on the title and at the end on the verso of the colophon leaf. Dedication to Michel de Selva, vescovo di Viseo. Folio, handsomely bound in fine Italian vellum. 122 ff. pp. A beautifully preserved copy, handsome and clean. RARE ALDINE EDITION OF THE CLASSIC LANDMARK IL CORTEGIANO. Castiglione’s great work is one of the most famous books of the Italian Renaissance and represents the highest level of committment to the prince and the new political and social order. The Courtier is the prototype of the courtesy book, written as conversation between members of the court. At the time of its composition Castiglione was at the court of Guidobaldo de Montefeltre and Elizabetta Gonzaga at Urbino, together with Bembo, Giuliano de' Medici, Federico Fregoso and other Renaissance luminaries; members of that court feature as speakers in the conversation. Castiglione, after serving the Sforzas at Milan and the Gonzagas at Mantua, came to the Court of Urbino in 1504 where de Montefeltre and his consort Elizabetta Gonzaga were the center of the most brilliant court in Italy, which counted among its members Bembo, Bibbiena, G. de’Medici and many other eminent men. This brilliant book is based on Castiglione’s experience of life among these dazzling figures. ‘The Courtier’ depicts the ideal aistocrat, and it has remained the perfect definition of a gentleman ever since. It is an epitome of the highest moral and social ideas of the Italian Renaissance and is written in the form of a discussion between members of the court. The fundamental idea that a man should perfect himself by developing all his faculties goes back to Aristotle’s ETHICS and many of the Aristotelian virtues reappear---honesty, magnanimity and good manners. The ideal man should also be proficient in arms and games, be a scholar and connoisseur of art; he should develop graceful speech and cherish a sense of honour. Relations between the prince and the courtier, forms of government, and rules for the conduct of a lady are also discussed and the book ends with the celebrated pronouncement on platonic love by Bembo. This Renaissance ideal of the free development of individual faculties and its rules of civilized behaviour formed a new conception of personal rights and obligations in Europe. The book was translated into most European languages and between 1528 and 1616 no less than one hundred and eight editions were published. It had great influence in Spain where traces of it can be found in DON QUIXOTE and in France in Corneille’s writings. But its most potent influence was probably in England. Its influence can be seen in Shakepeare, Spenser, Ben Jonson, Sir Philip Sidney, Robert Burton and Shelley. It had a great impact on the development of English drama and comedy. The beautiful and highly important printings of the house of Aldus are exceptional and revered in their own right. This, one of the most exceptional of Italian Renaissance works published by the great Renaissance printer of Italy. N° de réf. du libraire 25180

Description du livre : Hard cover. Engraved vignettes on titles & numerous engraved head- & tail-pieces throughout. Six vols. Large 4to, cont. half-calf & boards (boards with some wear or rubbing, Vol. III with some dampstaining and mildew — now dormant — towards end), spines gilt, red & green morocco lettering pieces on spines. [Amsterdam]: 1776. A nice set of this rare and famous catalogue, privately printed in three hundred copies; it is one of the most highly appreciated 18th-century catalogues of a private library. Crevenna (d. 1792), a passionate and scholarly Italian bibliophile from Milan, spent most of his life in Amsterdam where he assembled his collections, rich in rare and excellent editions of the Greek and Latin classics and other important books and MS. including over 1000 incunabula, books printed by the Aldine and other presses, and important groups of Italian and French literature. By trade, he was a tobacco merchant who married Antoinetta Maria Bolongaro, the daughter of a very wealthy Italian merchant also living in Amsterdam. Assisted by his librarian, the Milanese author Carl’Andrea Oltolina, he himself compiled this richly annotated catalogue, well-known for its many learned bibliographical notes. The catalogue also serves as an early catalogue of autograph MSS. The last volume comprises extensive indices, including incunabula arranged according to date, a list of the Greek and Latin authors, chronological lists of books printed by Aldus, the Giunti, Gryphius and others. Very good and large set with all the errata leaves. Two spine labels partly flaked away and one head-cap a little chipped. From the library of Duke Albrecht of Saxe-Teschen with his characteristic binding style and endpapers. ? Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 593–"Ouvrage recherché, assez rare; les descriptions des premières éditions y sont faites avec grand soin." Peignot, p. 92–"Excellent ouvrage, assez rare, les descriptions des premières éditions y sont faites avec exactitude. On y relève quelquefois Debure." Pollard & Ehrman, Table XXXII. Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 8–"Crevenna assembled a gentleman’s library of expensive standard works and, as the preface relates, took much pleasure in the task. The catalogue lists more than a thousand incunabula and was important for that reason in a time before the appearance of larger and better bibliographies" (& see pp. 100, 129, 135, & 238).

Description du livre : Zacharias Callierges (para Cornelio Benigno), 1515, 13 de agosto, Roma:, 1515. 4º. (21,9 x 15,6 cm.). 244 hojas, incluyendo las dos blancas. Las primeras hojas de la Olympia y Pythia, impresas en negro y rojo. El comentario están impresos rodeando al texto. Encuadernación del siglo xix en piel con gran supra-libros dorado en ambos planos. Adams 1219. Censimento 16. El primer libro impreso en tipos griegos en la ciudad de Roma.Los textos de Píndaro que han llegado a nuestros días son en su mayor parte estos epinicia, odas corales en honor a los ganadores en los juegos. Están agrupadas por juego: Olympia, Pythia, Nemea e Isthmia. Aldo publicó la editio princeps en 1513, pero con un texto reducido y sin las scholia aquí presentes.Zacarias Callierges habia trabajado como impresor previamente en Venecia, donde realizó cuatro obras en griego entre 1499 y 1500 y cuatro más en 1509; entre 1500 y 1509 trabajó como escribiente en Venecia y Padua. A requerimiento del Papa Leo X se trasladó a Roma en 1514 para que enseñara en el Gymnasio Griego. La imprenta de Callierges fue financiada por el Cardenal Chigi a través de su canciller, Cornelio Benigno y se estableció en Villa Chigi, donde imprimió obras literarias y litúrgicas hasta 1523.Los tipos utilizados para este libro fueron utilizados posteriormente por la imprenta de Giunta en Florencia."The first Greek book printed at Rome and the EDITIO PRINCEPS of the Greek Scholia, it remains the most splendid edition of the Olympia, Pythia, Nemea and Isthia of Pindar, greatest of the lyric poets of Ancient Greece. The works comprise the 'Victory Odes' celebrating the four great festivals and games of the Hellenic calendar. This is the second edition of the text proper, first printed by Aldus two years earlier but the readings for three of the works (which may be partly based on different ms. sources) are preferable to the Aldine. It is also the first production of Kallierges' Roman press, then just established by the wealthy financier Cornelo Benigno, chancellor to Cardinal Agostino Chigi in the Villa Chigi itself. It was probably the prize in the great race with Lascaris and Angelo Coloni to establish the first Greek press in Rome and it is a magnificent example of early Greek printing. Kallierges' fonts were based on those he first used at Venice in the Etymologium Graecum of 1499 "one of the most beautiful Greek books ever produced", Mortimer, Harvard It. C16 II p688 and which demonstrates Kallierges' ingenious solution to the problem of Greek accents which had bedevilled all earlier Greek types. His early scribal training must have helped considerably. Pindar was the star of the Alexanidria Pleiade and an inspiration not just to his Greek successors, but to many moderns, among them Ronsard, Pope, Goethe, Holderlein and Foscolo." [Socal].

Description du livre : (Venice), Aldus (In aedibus Haeredum Aldi, et Andreae Asulani Soceri, 1536). Small 8vo. Contemporary full vellum with remains of ties to boards. Some soiling, but a nice, sturdy copy. Pasted-down end-papers with annotations and calculations in ink. A bit of light brownspotting and top edge with an ink stain that touches numbering on a couple of leaves (still legible), but no lettering. Printed in Latin and Greek. Woodcut Aldus printer's device to title-page and last leaf (which also has a contemporary owner's name: Guillielmo Curgaz?). 28 + 26 + (2) ff. (2 final leaves being index, errata, colophon, and printer's device). Exceedingly rare first edition of the tremendously important publication that marks the beginning of Aristotle's influence in literature, being the first separate edition of Aristotle's "Poetics" (which had only previously been published in the collection "Rhetores Graeci" in 1508), together with the first printing of Pazzi's highly influential Latin translation and the two important prefatory letters. It is this publication that inaugurates the humanist interest in Aristotle's "Poetics" and creates the influence that this work is to have upon modern literature and poetical scholarship, ruling the field of literary theory until the time of the Romantics. This milestone publication constitutes a key event in the development of literary theory during the Renaissance. "[T]he modern influence of this famous work dates from the memorable year 1536." (Sandy's II:(133)). The present publication constitutes a work of immense importance to not only Renaissance thought and literary scholarship, but also to the entire modern development of literary theory and literary criticism. Having been rediscovered around 1500, Aristotle's "Poetics" came to play a foundational role in the history of scholarship - beginning with this edition, which for the first time bases the text upon the three newly discovered manuscripts not previously known, which has for the first time the "Poetics" on its own as (as opposed to being printed in a bigger collection of various Greek texts), as well as the Latin translation that came to be by far the most influential. "In composing this valuable and very rare edition, Pacius consulted three ancient MSS. One of which was in the Vatican. From the account of Buhle, this appears to be a very valuable work. The Latin version was published in 1538 (this is erroneous - in fact it was published together with the Greek text in 1536. Presumably Dibdin has not seen a copy of the work himself, due to the great scarcity of it): to which two very interesting epistles, by the two Pacii, are prefixed." Dibdin I:320). "Almost all that we now have of the Aristotelian Corpus was available by the close of the thirteenth century, but by the early fifteenth century the humanist search for ancient texts had turned up two important and previously little-known works bearing the philosopher's name - the "Mechanics" and the "Poetics". Both these short treatises were copied in 1457 for Cardinal Bessarion in an important Greek manuscript that was to help shape the printed tradition of Aristotle's non-logical works. No work of Aristotle's is more unlike the "Mechanics" than the "Poetics", which entered Europe's consciousness at about the same time and with even more dramatic effect. Lorenzo Valla (possibly), Angelo Poliziano, and Ermolao Barbaro knew the "Poetics" before Giorgio Valla made his defective Latin translation in 1498, superseded in 1536 by the version of Alessandro Pazzi. Once accessible, its impact was extraordinary. Even in its partial state, the "Poetics" was the most comprehensive work on literary theory and criticism surviving from the classical period, and it soon came to dominate literary discussion. Since the "poetics" bears the stamp of Aristotle's authority, it is unsurprising that modern critics regard its reappearance as a key event in the development of literary theory during the Renaissance and no wo.

Description du livre : (On colophon-leaf:) Haguenau, in aedibus Thomae Badensis, 1521). Small folio. Beautiful full calf binding over wooden boards. Recently rebacked. Beautiful blindstamped ornamental borders to boards and remains of clasps, ties missing. A few smaller wormhols to boards, and two drilled holes of ab. the same size to lower part of front board (for a chain?). Ornamented incunable-leaves with red and blue initials used as pasted-down end-papers. Front free end-paper soiled, with neat 19th century inscription (stating editions of the work), and with a beautiful large, engraved armorial book-plate (Collection of Bryan Hall). First leaf with a larger damp-spot to lower part (not affecting any text). Otherwise a very nice copy with only some minor light marginal soiling, a small dampstain to lower inner corner of last ab. 8 leaves, far from affecting text, and a bit of light spotting to a few leaves towards the end. Beautiful large woodcut printer's device to last leaf. (1) f., 776 columns (i.e. 388 pp/ 194 ff.), (1 - colophon) f. The rare 3rd edition of Hesychios' extremely important Greek dictionary, one of the most important works of philology and linguistics ever printed, this edition constituting the first Greek work to be printed in the famous Renaissance printing-city of Hagenau/Haguenau (in Alsace).The first edition of the work was printed by Aldus in Venice in 1514, and in 1520 a re-impression appeared. The present third edition, edited by Marcus Musurus and printed after the edition of 1514 of Aldus Manutius, constitutes the second re-impression of the work, but it is the first to be printed in Hagenau and the first by the notable printer Thomas Anshelm, who had settled in Haguenau in 1516, being the first to seriously rival Henry Gran here. Anshelm is regarded as one of the most important printers of what we now call the Humanist period of the Renaissance. All three editions are rare and important.Hesychios of Alexandria was a highly important grammarian and lexicographer, whose only surviving work is the present lexicon of unusual and obscure Greek words, the richest of its kind ever. It is assumed that the work was executed by Hesychios during the 5th century. The work is extraordinary in that it constitutes a huge and unique listing of peculiar Greek words and phrases, with explanations and often references to the originator or place of origin. As such, the work is of the greatest value to the both the student of Greek dialects as well as for the ongoing work of restoring the texts of classical authors, for which the present lexicon it still an indispensible tool. But Hesychios' work is not only of the utmost importance to Greek philology, it is also a main work in the study of lost languages and obscure non-Greek dialects (e.g. Thracian and ancient Macedonian). Furthermore, the work was instrumental in the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European, one of the most, if not THE most, important philological tasks ever. Only in the late 18th century did Jones determine the connection between the Indo-European languages, thereby founding comparative philology. Only a very corrupt manuscript, from the 15th century, of the work survives, and it is this manuscript that Marcus Musurus used as the basis for the first printing of the work by Aldus in 1514. As stated, two re-impressions (with modest corrections) appeared of this Aldus-edition (ours being the second), and since then no complete comparative edition of the manuscript has been published, bestowing on these three scarce early editions a huge importance. A modern edition of the seminal work has, however, been in intermittent publication since 1953. The editor of the last wolume states the following about Hesychios' Lexicon: "Hesychius of Alexandria lived in the fifth century A.D. and compiled a dictionary of unusual or difficult Greek words with explanations in Greek. Approximately 51,000 entries make it the richest surviving Greek lexicon compiled until the invention of printi. N° de réf. du libraire 42911
