DIOGENES LAERTIUS.
Les vies des plus illustres philosophes de l'antiquité. Avec leurs Dogmes, leurs Systêmes, leur Morale, & leurs Sentences les plus remarquables. Traduite du grec de Diogène Laërce. Auxquelles on a ajouté la Vie de l'Auteur, celles d'Epictete, de Confucius, ... & un Abrégé historiques de la Vie des Femmes Philosophes de l'Antiquité (trans. by de Chaufepied). 3 vols.
1758 With 3 engr. frontispieces by (Christian Friedrich) Fritzsch, 4 engr. title-vignettes, 1 vignette, and 28 engr. portrait plates. 12mo. Contemp. red morocco, flat spines richly gilt with tiny stars and dotted lines, wide gilt border composed of small stars and fleurons, fillets, dotted lines, and arabesques around sides, gilt outer and inner dentelles, edges gilt (by Derome le jeune?). Amsterdam, J. H. Schneider, 1758. Fine set in an elegant binding of the lives of the most famous philosophers of antiquity, by the historian and epicurean philosopher Diogenes Laërtius (fl. c. A.D. 222-235). Not much is know about him, he is also sometimes thought to have been a Christian. The work is divided into two sections, dealing with the Ionian and the Italian schools. The present edition is illustrated with 28 fine full-page portraits; the plates are not signed, but they might be the work of Christian Friedrich Fritzsch (c. 1719-1774) who was active for Amsterdam publishers for some time and did portraits. As to the translator, Hoefer knows one Jacques-Georges de Chauffepié (1702-1786) from Leeuwarden, a biographer and protestant minister, who translated mostly from the English; he maybe identical to the present assumed de Chaufepied. - Quérard, La France littéraire, II, 564 (mentions Chaufepied as translator); Brunet II, 721; Lewine 147; Barbier 1028 c (mentions Schneider as translator).

DIOGENES LAERTIUS.
Diogenis Laertii De vitis, dogmatibus et apophthegmatibus clarorum philosophorum libri decem, graece et latine.
Leipzig (Lipsiae), Impensis Ioannis Pauli Krausii, Bibliop. Viennens., 1759. (Colophon at the end: 'Lipsiae, Ex officina I.G.I. Breitkopfii'). 8vo. (XIV),756 (recte 736),(94 index) p. Contemporary calf. 19.5 cm The greatest known source of information about the philosophers of antiquity (Ref: VD18 10213392-008; Hoffmann 1,566; Dibdin 1,504; Moss 1,400/01; Brunet 2,720; Graesse 2,396; Ebert 6177) (Details: Printed in 2 colums, Greek text with facing Latin translation) (Condition: Binding scuffed & chafed, especially at the extremes. Back & boards rubbed. Paper foxing, yellowing and occasionally browning. Right upper corner of the last 80 p. is slightly waterstained. Some small and old ink annotations and underlinings) (Note: The 'Lives and Doctrines of the Philosophers' of the Greek author Diogenes Laertius, who lived probably in the first half of the third century A.D., is still 'our best indirect source of knowledge for classical philosophy'. The 'Lives' comprises both a biographical and a doxographical account, basically focused on Greek thinkers from the 6th to the 3rd century B.C. (from Thales to Epicurus), although references to schools and individuals extend to at least the 2nd century A.D.' (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass. 2010, p. 271) Diogenes Laertius drew his material from earlier compilations, and his doxographic account offers long excerpts from primary texts not transmitted elsewhere, for example Epicurus' 'Principal Doctrines'. Diogenes' reliability and value differ from passage to passage. Some give invaluable information, other passages offer mere caricature. His approach is not a 'systematic analysis, but rather a eulogistic narrative of the course of ancient philosophy, and of the four main classical schools, the Academy, Peripatetics, Stoics and Epicureans. Anecdotal and perhaps largely apocryphal in nature, still it gave to Renaissance humanists, like Leonardo Bruni, Machiavelli, Erasmus et alii, some conception of ancient philosophy, especially of Platonic and Epicurean thought.' (Ch.L. Stinger, 'Humanism and the Church Fathers: Ambrogio Traversari (1386-1439) and Christian antiquity in the Italian Renaissance', Albany 1977, p. 71) § The 'editio princeps' was published in Basel in 1533. The Latin translation was published much earlier in Rome in 1472. This translation was later revised several times and appears also in this book. It was made by the Italian Hellenist Ambrogio Traversari, also known as Ambrosius Traversari, 1386-1439. Our 1759 edition is a reissue of the edition of 1731 of Longolius, which in turn was a revision of the 1692 edition, which was produced by the Danish philologist Marcus Meibom, or Marcus Meibomius. The edition of 1731 was produced by the German philologist and historian Paulus Daniel Longolius, 1704-1779, from 1735 till his death Rector of the Gymnasium in Hof. He wrote on local history and was an editor of Zedler's Universallexikon. He also published three texts of classical authors: 'Plinii epistolae' (Amsterdam 1734), this Diogenes edition (Curiae, i.e. Hof, Saale, 1739), and a Gellius edition (Curiae, 1741). (ADB 19, 156/57) The 1731 edition contained, besides the Greek text and Latin translation, a preface, commentaries and engraved portraits. Because this edition was out of print, and there was much demand for it, the publisher Paulus Krausius decided to produce this Leipsic edition of 1759, which is in fact a reissue of the 1731 edition of Longolius, omitting however the portraits, the preface and the commentaries, and offering the Greek text, the Latin translation, and 94 pages of indexes. (Praefatio leaf *5 verso and *6 recto) (Provenance: on the front flyleaf in pencil 'RtK', this is Rijkel ten Kate 1918-2008. He taught classics at the Willem Lodewijk Gymnasium in Groningen. In 1955 he wrote his dissertation: ’Quomodo heroes in Statii Thebaide describantur quaeritur’, on the Thebaid of the Roman poet Statius) (Collation: *8 (minus blank leaf *8), A-3F8 (minus blank leaf 3F8); the pagination jumps between the gatherings 2Y and 2Z from 721 to 741, the catchword on leaf 2Y4 verso is correct)) (Photographs on request)

DIOGENES LAERTIUS.
Diogenis Laertii De vita et moribus philosophorum libri X. Recens ad exemplar Graecum collati, ex eiusque fide cura doctissimorum virorum restituti & emendati. Cum indice nominum ac rerum locupletissimo.
Paris, (Parisiis), Apud Hieronymum de Marnef, sub Pelicano, Monte D. Hilarii, 1560. 12mo. 596,(28 index),(2 epilogue 'Candido Lectori'),(1 woodcut illustration),(1 woodcut printer's mark of De Marnef) p. Later vellum 13 cm - The greatest known source of information about the philosophers of antiquity (Ref: Hoffmann 1,569; Graesse 2,397, erroneously dating 1561) (Details: 2 thongs laced through the joints. Woodcut printer's mark of De Marnef on the title (BaTyR no. 28133), depicting a pelican on his nest, feeding his young with his own blood; the motto is: 'In me mors, in me vita'. On the last page another version of De Marnef's printer's mark (BaTyR no. 2882), now depicting a griffon that holds in its claw a cubic weight to which is attached a winged globe. The cube stands for constancy and the globe for fortune; the motto is: 'Virtutis et gloriae, comes invidia'. Marnef used this version of his mark only at the end of the books he printed; This printer's mark very closely resembles that of the Lyonese printer Sébastien Gryphius, only the motto is different. Greek text and a Latin translation.) (Condition: Vellum somewhat age-toned. Short title in ink on the back. Front flyleaf removed. Stamp on front pastedown and on the title; tiny hole in outer margins of title; 4 tiny holes in last leaf; Binder's error: he bound leaf X7, p. 333/4, probably a cancel, before leaf X3) (Note: This is according to Graesse a repetition of the edition of 'De vita et moribus etc.' edited by Johannes Boulierius (Jean Boulier), Lyon 1556. We compared both works and conclude that Graesse is more or less right. The typesetter of the 1560 edition had most probably the 1556 edition before him. He repeats even the printed marginal remarks and annotations. But there are occasionally minute differences in the Greek text, and sometimes the 1560 edition adds an explanatory marginal remark. In book 7 p. 340, in the life of Zeno Criticus for instance, we found a printed 'varia lectio'. There 1556 has only therizonti, 1560 adds in the margin: '* Forte erizonti contentioso'. In 1556 the number 58 is quintaginta & octo, in 1560 Duodesexaginta. (p. 425 & 342) In the epilogue dated 1560, we read that we have here a text revised and ameliorated with the help of a manuscript 'cuius (quamvis mutili) veritate & fide non pauca restituenda, emendandaque curavit Hieronymus Marnefius Parisiensis Typographus'. (Leaf 2Q7). This activity is confirmed in the 'Extrait du Privilège du Roi', which grants Marnefius the exclusive right to publish this text 'Lequel auroit esté nouvelement reveu, visité, corrigé, additionné & augmenté', for the next six years. (Leaf A1 verso, which is the verso of the title) Immediately after this privilege, and preceding the Latin translation, we find a 3 page letter of Fr. Ambrosius addressed to Cosimo de' Medici. This letter is meant to assure the reader that this 1560 translation is a reliable old, and often printed one, based on the translation that was made by the Italian priest, theologian and Hellenist Ambrogio Traversari, O.S.B. Cam., also known as Ambrosius Traversari, or Ambrosius Camaldulensis, 1386-1439. He worked between 1424 and 1433 on this translation, which came to be widely circulated in manuscript form, and was only published in Rome in 1472. In this dedicatory letter Ambrosius Traversari tells us that he translated the 'Lives of the Philosophers' at the request of Cosimo de' Medici. ('Tibi (.) hoc opus dedicatum fuit, qui & autoritate tua in primis nos ad illud impulisti'. p. 5) The 'Lives of the Philosophers' of the Greek author Diogenes Laertius, who probably lived in the first half of the 3rd cent. A.D., is a compendium full of biographies of the ancient philosophers, from Thales to Epicurus, and their doctrines. Diogenes Laertius drew his material from earlier compilations. His reliability and value differ from passage to passage. Some give invaluable information, other passages offer mere caricature. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 348/49) It 'provides not a systematic analysis, but rather a eulogistic narrative of the course of ancient philosophy (.) of the four main classical schools, the Academy, Peripatetics, Stoics and Epicureans. Anecdotal and perhaps largely apocryphal in nature, still it gave to Renaissance humanists some conception of ancient philosophy, especially of Platonic and Epicurean thought'. (Ch.L. Stinger, 'Humanism and the Church Fathers: Ambrogio Traversari (1386-1439) and Christian antiquity in the Italian Renaissance', Albany 1977, p. 71)) (Provenance: On the front pastedown a green stamp of 'Univ. Doz. Dr. Mag. F.F. Schwarz, Professor. A 8810 Graz, Panoramagasse 2A' with a handwritten date of acquisition '1973'. Franz Ferdinand Schwarz was from 1982 till 1996 professor of classical philology at the University of Graz, where he was born in 1934. He died in his hometown in 2001 after a long illness. (See his wikipedia lemma 'Franz Ferdinand Schwarz') On the title an old almost illegible stamp of the University of Ferrara, showing a tree in its center, and part of the legend 'Università di Ferrara') (Collation: A - 2Q-8) (Photographs on request)

Diogenis Laertii de vita et moribus philosophorum, libri X. Recens ad fidem Graeci codicis diligenter recogniti. Cum indice locupletissimo.
Lyon (Lugduni), Apud Antonium Gryphium, 1592. 16mo. 670,(22 index) p. Vellum 12 cm - The greatest known source of information about the philosophers of antiquity (Ref: Hoffmann 1,569; Pettegree/Walsby, French Books III & IV. Books published in France before 1601 in Latin and Languages other than French', Leiden 2011, no. 65100) (Details: Latin translation of Ambrogio Traversari only. Woodcut printer's mark of Gryphius on the title, depicting a griffin, which mythological animal symbolizes courage, diligence, watchfulness, and rapidity of execution, used as a pun of the family name Gryph or Greif (of German origin). The motto is 'Virtute duce / comite fortuna', 'Virtue thy leader, fortune thy comrade', a quote from a letter of Cicero to Plancus (Epistulae ad Familiares, liber X,3). Apart from the title and headings the text is printed completely in italics. Very peculiar is that the first and the last gathering of another Diogenes Laertius edition, both numbering 8 leaves and comprising the title, preface, and the index, was bound before the Gryphius edition. These 2 inserted gatherings are from a Diogenes edition printed by Chouët in 1595: 'Diogenis Laertii de vitis, dogmatis & apophtegmatis eorum qui in philosophia claruerunt libri X'. N.pl., Apud Iacobum Chouët, 1595) (Condition: Backstrip severely damaged, and loosening. Vellum soiled and tanned. Corners bumped. Big ink stain on 3 leaves. Some light waterstains in the gutter of the first gatherings. Lower margin of title expertly repaired. Paper yellowing) (Note: The 'Vitae Philosophorum' of the Greek author Diogenes Laertius, who probably lived in the first half of the 3rd cent.

Stinger, 'Humanism and the Church Fathers: Ambrogio Traversari (1386-1439) and Christian antiquity in the Italian Renaissance', Albany 1977, p. 71) The Latin translation of this 1592 edition of the 'Lives of the Philosophers' was made by the Italian priest, theologian and Hellenist Ambrogio Traversari, O.S.B. Cam., also known as Ambrosius Traversari, or Ambrosius Camaldulensis, 1386-1439. He worked between 1424 and 1433 on this translation, which came to be widely circulated in manuscript form, and was only published in Rome in 1472. The Latin translation is preceded by a dedicatory letter of Traversari to Cosimo de' Medici, in which Traversari tells that he translated the 'Lives of the Philosophers' at his request.

DIOGENES LAERTIUS.
Kort Begrijp van Diogenes Laërtius zijnde het Leven, heerlijke Spreuken, loffelijke Daden, en snedige Antwoorden der oude Philosophen: waar by komen eenige treffelijke spreuken en gelykenissen: uyt verscheyden heydensche en andere schryvers. By-een-gebragt door P(aschier) D(e) F(ijne).
Tot Rotterdam, By Joannes Naeranus, 1655. 12mo (XXIV),407,(1 blank) p., frontispiece. Vellum 13 cm The greatest known source of information about the philosophers of antiquity (Ref: Geerebaert 31,1: first translation into Dutch; OiN. 164: 'reeks fragm.'; Sub Rosa 6254) (Details: 5 thongs laced through the cover. Engraved frontispiece, which depicts a gathering of philosophers, and the meeting between Alexander the Great and the philosopher Diogenes) (Condition: Vellum soiled & spotted, showing a real patina of age. The frontispiece has been reattached to the title in the gutter with a strip of paper. The left blank margin of the frontispiece is gone, the other edges of the frontispiece are thumbed and slightly chafed. Small wormhole in the gutter of the last 110 p. Tiny pinpoint wormhole in left upper corner. Lower margins a bit narrow) (Note: This book offers an anthology (kort begrijp) of the 'Vitae Philosophorum' of the Greek author Diogenes Laertius, who probably lived in the first half of the 3rd cent. A.D. The 'Vitae Philosophorum' is a compendium full of biographies of the ancient philosophers, from Thales to Epicurus, and their doctrines. Diogenes Laertius drew his material from earlier compilations. His reliability and value differ from passage to passage. Some give invaluable information, other passages offer mere caricature. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 348/49.) The excerpts from Diogenes fill the first 110 pages, in the rest of the book we find edifying proverbs and the like from other ancient sources, from Plato to Eusebius, followed by a collection of similes taken from unknown sources. Added is also a summary of 21 p. of the thoughts of Lucretius. At the end we find a bonus, 17 p. filled with wise and devote proverbs and sayings of Islamic heathens 'welke in deugdsame werken en treffelijke Leeringen, de Christenen niet en schijnen te wijken' (Preface *3 verso). The translation of Diogenes, here translated for the first time into Dutch, and the other collections are from the hand of the Dutch protestant minister Paschier de Fijne, 1588-1667. He wrote a number of books and lively pamphlets against the Calvinists to defend the branch of the 'Remonstrantse Broederschap'. In the preface De Fijne explains why he excerpted Diogenes, and did not translate the whole work. In the first place the 'Lives' were not interesting enough for devote christians, and in the second place they contained dangerous thoughts, 'om datter dingen in sijn ende van haar verhaald werden, die beter nooyt gedacht dan gedaan waren; en waar mede de meeste ende de geleerste besmet sijn geweest, selfs die de Beste Spreuken gesproken hebben.' (Preface *4)) (Provenance: Small name on front pastedown of 'H. de Koning') (Collation: *12, A-R12 (R12 verso blank)) (Photographs on request)
