Harvey in Italia (Offrint from Arch Patol Clin Med
Zauli,Castrocaro Terme/-/i/A 1964. 1964 Jul;41:48-54). With 2 figures. Original Brochure, in good condition. - 7 S. (pages). William Harvey (1578 - 1657). Harvey, oldest of seven children, was born in 1578 in Kent, England, at the halfway point of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. He was a voracious student, earning his bachelor's degree in 1597 from Cambridge University. He continued his schooling at the University of Padua, the foremost medical school of the time, where he studied under the esteemed scientist and surgeon, Hieronymus Fabricius. Fabricius, an ardent anatomist, had observed the one-way valves in veins, but had not figured out exactly what their role was. The popular belief of the day held that blood was circulated by a sort of pulsing action of the arteries. His research into the circulatory system and his other lines of inquiry were generously sponsored and encouraged by James I's successor, King Charles I, to whom Harvey was later appointed personal physician. By studying animals given to him by his regal employer, Harvey eventually developed an accurate theory of how the heart and circulatory system operated. He published his theories in 1628 in his famous book On the Motion of the Heart and Blood in Animals, which made him notorious throughout Europe. (Wikipedia)

GELLIUS.
A. Gellii luculentissimi scriptoris Noctes Atticae. Nunc denuo ab infinitis quibus scatebant mendis, summa ac diligenti cura repurgatae, atque pristinae integritati restitutae.
Venice, (Venetiis), Apud Hieronymum Scotum, 1569. 8vo. (XVI),543,(1 blank) p. 18th/19th century half vellum 16 cm (Ref: Edit16, CNCE 20612; Not in Schweiger, Didbin, Moss, Ebert, Graesse, Brunet or Fabricius/Ernesti) (Details: Evidently a rare book. Not a single copy in Rare Book Hub (Americana Exchange). KVK (Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog) refers only to copies in Italian libraries. Marbled boards. Printer's mark on the title, depicting a winged leopard (a kind of griffin) carrying a winged orb or ball. Woodcut initial at the beginning of each of the 20 books. Printed almost completely in italics. At the end is a 35 page list of Greek passages found in the text with their translation into Latin, called dictionum graecarum interpretatio) (Condition: Cover slightly worn, especially to the extremes; back slightly spotted and soiled with some faint pencil stripes. Ownership entry on the lower part of the title erased. A pinpoint wormhole in the right upper corner of the last 4 leaves, far away from the text) (Note: The Venetian publishing firm of the Scotto family printed in the 16th century in 2 fields, it specialised in the printing of music and texts of the Latin classics. The Scotto firm contributed also in the area of Aristotelian studies. The most important of this printing dynasty is Girolamo Scotto, or Hieronymus Scotus. He composed music himself, but he is best known as the most inflential music printer of the Renaissance. He has even a lemma in wikipedia. When Girolamo took over in 1539 the firm had already earned great finance with classic texts, Latin translations and commentaries by various humanists. He made however a huge fortune with mass produced music. Still he continued to print texts of classical authors. An example is this Gellius edition. It has some remarkable features, it looks exactly like a Gryphius edition. It imitates the handy small format, the lay-out, the italic fypeface, the catch-words and the lectiones variantes printed in the margins, of the Gellius editions which Gryphius had published earlier. The books of this Lyonaise firm were often cheap pirated reprints of successfull texts, which were sold all over Europe. It seems that the Scotto firm tried to imitate the Gryphius edition to join in its success. Scotto even had the nerve of repeating verbatim the title of the Gellius edition of Gryphius which was published in 1556. Remarkable is that the editor of the Scottus edition very often took the trouble of swapping the lectio varians printed in the margin of the Gryphius edition and the reading in the text. The Scotus edition repeats almost verbatim the dictionum graecarum interpretatio of the Gryphius edition at the end, including the Ad lectorem. Scotus perhaps produced this edition solely for the Italian market, for KVK records only copies in Italian libraries) (Provenance: Old name on the lower margin of the title erased, difficult to read: Caesaris Crispoliti Perugini. We found one Caesar Crispolitus, or Cesare Crispolti, 1563-1608, a Perugian local historian, a jurist and canon of the Perugian cathedral. He is best known for his Perugia augusta descritta which was published posthumously in 1648. He was once the owner of a manuscript now in the Biblioteca comunale Augusta of Perugia, Manoscritti, 1058. He is described there as I.U.D., Iuris Utriusque Doctor. The library holds some manuscripts with lectures he held at the local Accademia. See manus.iccu.sbn.it//opac_SchedaScheda.php?ID=0000188440. His Raccolta delle cose segnalate, of 1597, one of the oldest guide to Perugia, was republished in 2001 by Olschki as «Raccolta delle cose segnalate» di Cesare Crispolti. La più antica guida di Perugia (1597). 1604 saw his dissertation Idea dello scolare che versa negli studi affine di prendre il grado del Dottorato) (Collation: *8, A - 2L8) (Photographs on request)

Hisce accedit locupletissimus omnium vocabulorum index, studio & opera Jo. Andr. Bosii confectus, curante Augustino Van Staveren, qui & suas notas addidit.
Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Apud Samuelem Luchtmans, 1734. (XVI including frontispiece),765,(187) p. Half calf 21.5 cm (Ref: STCN ppn 189887893; Schweiger 2,300/1; Dibdin 2,246; Moss 2,320; Ernesti/Fabricius I,107: 'Optima hodie et nitidissima est'; Graesse 2,271; Brunet 2,289) (Details: Back gilt and with 5 raised bands. Black morocco shield in the second compartment. Boards marbled. Margins preserved uncut. Frontispiece, executed by J. Visscher, depicting Clio with a pen in her hand, receiving advice from Kronos, scythe at hand, Fama blows her trumpet; title in red and black; printer's mark on title, depicting Athena, motto: 'Tuta sub Aegide Pallas'; small engravings of portraits and objects in the text on 11 pages) (Condition: Binding rubbed and scuffed. Head and tail of the spine damaged. Small library shelf number label on the upper board. Half of the front flyleaf cut off vertically. Flyleaf at the end gone. 12 gatherings are somewhat browning) (Note: This is an edition with commentary of the only surviving complete work of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, ca. 100-24 B.C., 'De excellentibus ducibus exterrarum gentium'. He is the author of the first surviving ancient collection of biographies. 'De excellentibus etc.' contains the lives of 20 Greek generals, and the Carthaginians Hamilkar and Hannibal. Nepos corresponded with Cicero and was close with Cicero's friend Atticus. The collection served probably as a model for Plutarch's Vitae Parallelae. In his own days and in late antiquity Nepos was considered to be a source of importance. The churchfather Hieronymus, included him in his 'De viris illustribus' (392 A.D.) in his list of great authors and historians. Already in late antiquity this collection was ascribed to the grammarian Aemilius Probus, and the 'editio princeps' of 1471 bears his name. The simple style of writing of Nepos has made him a standard choice for schools. The biographies provided the pupils also models of behaviour. Schweiger mentions numerous editions. This edition is a socalled Variorum edition, an edition which contained everthing a student required. Such an edition offers the 'textus receptus' which is widely accepted, accompanied with the commentary and the annotations of specialists, taken from earlier useful, normative or renewing editions. Editions like these, 'cum notis Variorum', were useful, but never broke new ground. The production of this kind of editions was the specialty of Dutch scholars of the 17th and 18th century. The compilers seldom were great scholars, but often hard working schoolmasters. The Dutch schoolmaster who skillfully excerpted, compared and contrasted the material of brighter minds is Augstinus van Staveren, 1704-1772. He was rector of the schola latina at Leiden since 1750. He is known for this edition of Nepos, which saw several later editions, and his 'Auctores Mythographi Latini', which was published in 1742. The frontispiece, or rather the copper plate for this frontispiece and the text engravings which belong to this edition, have a long history. The same plates were used for almost 150 years by different publishing firms. The plates were first used for by Hackius edition of 1658 and then the reissue of 1675. The next users were the Blaeu brothers, in 1687, thereupon probably Mortier, in 1704 (not seen by us), then Janssonius van Waesberge in 1705, and then by Samuel Luchtmans, who seems the last owner, in 1728. Luchtmans used the plates in 1734 again for his new edition of Van Staveren, next for the second edition of 1773, and finally for the 'editio minor' of Van Staveren, which was published in 1793) (Collation: *- 2*8, A-3N8, 3O4) (Photographs on request)

Editions like these, 'cum notis Variorum', were useful, but never broke new ground. The production of this kind of editions was the specialty of Dutch scholars of the 17th and 18th century. The compilers seldom were great scholars, but often hard working schoolmasters. Such an edition was published in 1658 in Leiden by the Hackius brothers. It was produced by the young Dutch scholar R. Keuchenius (1636-1673), who matriculated in 1654, and was later in life appointed professor of Roman History at the 'Athenaeum Illustre' of Amsterdam. The edition of 1654 was revised and augmented by an anonymous editor, and published in 1675 by the same Hackius brothers. The preface of Keuchenius to the edition of 1658 (and the testimonia) was repeated, but now anonymously. The anonymous editor seems to be Keuchenius, for the main body of his work and his own notes have been preserved. In a short 'ad lectorem' (signed 'Keuchenius' in 1658, anonymous in 1675) the editor explains that he based his edition on those of Lambinus and Longolius, and that he passim added selected observations of Gifanius, Savarus, Schottus, Boeclerus, Gebhardus, Ernesti and Bosius. He also elucidated the Lives with passages from ancient Greek historians, like Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon and Plutarch. The edition of 1675 became the model of a line of clones, including the frontispiece and illustrations. It was reprinted verbatim, line by line, page by page, with the same layout and the same kind of typeface by the Blaeu brothers in 1687, probably Mortier in 1704, by Janssonius van Waesberge in 1705, by Samuel Luchtmans in 1728. The frontispiece and the illustrations of the 1687 edition are however no copies, but they are exactly the same as in the edition of 1675. Blaeu had perhaps come into the possession of the plates which belonged to the edition of 1675 after the death of Cornelius Hackius in 1668, and used them for this 1687 edition. He also might have hired them) (Collation: *-2*8; A-2G8 (leaf 2G8 verso blank)) (Photographs on request)

Nevertheless he proudly announces in the preface that he also has consulted in his search for 'variantes lectiones' 4 manuscripts of the Library of the University of Leiden, and the collations of 2 English manuscripts. This second edition of Van Staveren's Nepos was published posthumously. In the short 'dedicatio' to the second edition, written by Carolus Antonius Wetstenius J.C., we read that Van Staveren, who was already halfway, asked him, short before his death to complete the second corrected and augmented edition. Van Staveren, whom he calls 'vir amicissimus' was once his teacher, Westein tells us. Van Staveren had already skipped 'quaedam, suaque non pauca', to prevent the book from being too overloaded. Van Staveren is known for this edition of Nepos, which saw several later reissues, and for his 'Auctores Mythographi Latini', which was published in 1742. Not much is known of Carolus Antonius Wetstein, 1742-1797. He was a Leyden lawyer and also an accomplished Neolatin poet. (Van der Aa 20,159) The bibliographers donot mention his involvement in the editing of his teacher's Nepos. The frontispiece, or rather the copper plate for this frontispiece, has a story of almost 150 years. It was first used in 1658, then 1675, 1687, 1704 (?), 1705, 1728, 1734, this book of 1773, and finally in 1793) (Provenance: The prize is for Henricus Oort: 'Ingenuo optimaeque spei adolescentulo Henrico Oort. Hoc virtutis ac diligentiae praemium in classe sexta nova decreverunt Ampliss. Dd. Coss. & Scholarchae Amstelaedamenses'. It is signed by the Rector R. van Ommeren, 29th of March, 1793. Young Henricus Oort, 1778-1849, received this book also for his diligence. That is what he was, diligent. He took holy orders in the 'Nederlandsch Hervormde Kerk' and worked tirelessly for his church. He was also a diligent member of all kind of Societies.

Amsterdam (Amstelodami), Prostant apud Wetstenios, 1707. 8vo. (XXXII, including frontispiece),439,(40 index),(1 blank) p. Modern half calf. 19 cm (Ref: STCN ppn 186438281; Schweiger 2,299; Dibdin 2,245; Moss 2,319/20; Fabricius/Ernesti I,105: 'quae locupletissima est editio'; cf. Graesse 2,270, ed. Keuchenius) (Details: The engraved frontispiece is dated 1704, and is executed by J. Visscher, depicting Clio with a pen in her hand, she receives advice from Kronos, who holds his scythe, Fama blows her trumpet. Small engraved illustrations on 12 p.) (Condition: Name on the blank margin of the frontispiece. Oval stamp on the title. Paper slightly warped and yellowing) (Note: This is an edition with commentary of the only surviving complete work of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, ca. 100-24 B.C., 'De excellentibus ducibus exterrarum gentium'. He is the author of the first surviving ancient collection of biographies. 'De excellentibus etc.' contains the lives of 20 Greek generals, and the Carthaginians Hamilkar and Hannibal. § Nepos corresponded with Cicero and was close with Cicero's friend Atticus. The collection served probably as a model for Plutarch's 'Vitae Parallelae'. In his own days and in late antiquity Nepos was considered to be a source of importance. The churchfather Hieronymus, included him in his 'De viris illustribus' (392 A.D.) in his list of great authors and historians. Already in late antiquity this Nepos collection was ascribed to the grammarian Aemilius Probus, and the 'editio princeps' of 1471 bears that name. § The simple style of writing of Nepos has made him a standard choice for schools. The biographies provided the pupils also models of behaviour. Schweiger mentions numerous editions. This edition is a so-called Variorum edition, an edition which contained everthing a student required. Such an edition offers the 'textus receptus' which is widely accepted, accompanied with the commentary and the annotations of specialists, taken from earlier useful, normative or renewing editions. Editions like these, 'cum notis Variorum', were useful, but never broke new ground. The production of this kind of editions was the specialty of Dutch scholars of the 17th and 18th century. The compilers seldom were great scholars, but often hard working schoolmasters. Such a useful edition was published in 1658 in Leiden by the Hackius brothers. It was produced by the young Dutch scholar R. Keuchenius (1636-1673), who matriculated in 1654, and was later in life appointed professor of Roman History of the 'Athenaeum Illustre' at Amsterdam. The edition of 1658 was revised and augmented by an anonymous editor, and republished in 1675 by the same Hackius brothers. The preface of Keuchenius to the edition of 1658 (and the testimonia) was repeated, but now anonymously. The anonymous editor seems to be Keuchenius, for the main body of his work and his own notes have been preserved. In a short 'ad lectorem' (Keuchenius in 1658, and anonymous in 1675) the editor explains that he based his edition on those of Lambinus and Longolius, and that he passim added selected observations of Gifanius, Savarus, Schottus, Boeclerus, Gebhardus, Ernesti and Bosius. He also elucidated the Lives with passages from ancient Greek historians, like Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon and Plutarch. The edition of 1675 became the model of a line of clones, including the frontispiece and illustrations. It was reprinted 'verbatim', line by line, page by page, with the same layout and the same kind of typeface by the Blaeu brothers in 1687, probably Mortier in 1704, by Janssonius van Waesberge in 1705, by Wetstein in 1707 (this edition), and by Samuel Luchtmans in 1728) (Provenance: On the frontispiece: 'B.L.W. Mensing'. Between In the second half of the 19th century B.L.W. Mensing exploited a boarding school in Schoonoord, an estate in the Dutch city of Rijswijk. (See Wikipedia, Buitenplaats Schoonoord) § On the title the stamp of: 'Huize Katwijk, De Breul, Zeist'. This school still exists, and is now called Katholieke Scholengemeenschap De Breul. (See Wikipedia) The school was established as a boarding school in 1831 in 'Katwijk aan den Rijn', and was in 1842 transfered to the Jesuits. The school moved to The Hague in 1928, then to Noordwijkerhout in 1941, and finally in1946 to 'De Breul', an estate between Zeist and Driebergen in the province Utrecht) (Collation: *-2*8; A-2G8 (leaf 2G8 verso blank)) (Photographs on request)

Basel (Basileae), In Officina Frobeniana, 1533. (Colophon at the end: 'Basileae, In Officina Frobeniana per Hieronymum Frobenium et Nicolaum Episcopium, 1533'). Folio. (LXXII),492,(24) p. Half calf (late 19th century) 30 cm (Ref: VD16 T 13; Neue Pauly, Suppl. 2, p. 574; Schweiger 2,998/99; Dibdin 2,449/50; Moss 2,641; Fabricius/Ernesti 2,395; Brunet 5,634; Ebert 22142; Graesse 6/2,8; USTC no. 681875) (Details: Gilt back with a red lettering label. Edges dyed red. Large printer's mark of Froben on the title and last page. Several woodcut initials in the text, some small, some larger) (Condition: Many contemporary marginal notes and underlinings on the first 170 pages. The notes have been slightly trimmed by the 19th century binder. The title leaf has been laid down, first 8 leaves neatly repaired at the top of the inner margin. Partly waterstained in the beginning, and at the end quite heavily. The last leaves have a few light spots of moulding. Paper yellowing and foxed in places. Inkstains and two scratches on the frontcover; a few scratches on the back) (Note: 'The best of 3 Tacitus editions of Frobenius'. The colophon on the recto of the last leaf specifies the title page: 'Basileae in Officina Frobeniana per Hieronymum Frobenium et Nicolaum Episcopium 1533' . Basel was in the 16th century one of the most important centres of humanism. 'Humanism was there fostered by the University founded in 1460, while classical texts were issued by at least 3 printing-presses, (1) that of Johannes Froben (1491), who was succeeded in 1527 by his son Hieronymus and his son-in-law Episcopius; (2) that of Cratanter(1518) subsequently managed by Oporinus (1544); and (3) that of Hervagius (1531). The texts were founded on MSS from the monasteries of Alsace and the Palatinate, and some of them are now the only evidence as to the readings of those MSS'. (Sandys, 'A history of classical scholarship', N.Y., 1964, vol. 2,262) § The text of Tacitus owes much to the corrections of the Alsace scholar Beatus Rhenanus of Schlettstadt, 1485-1547, 'who was distinguised for his fidelity to the readings of the manuscripts and for his critical caution in admitting conjectures'. (Idem, p. 2,263) His best editions were published in Basel, the 'editio princeps' of Velleius Paterculus (1520), Seneca's 'Apocolocyntosis Divi Claudii', also called 'Ludus de morte Divi Claudii' (1515), and his Tacitus, which was first published by the father of Hieronymus, Johannes Froben, in 1519. For the text of his Tacitus Rhenanus used the 'aeditio vulgata' of Beoraldus, published in Rome in 1515, in which the first 5 books of the Annals were published for the first time. For this second edition of 1533, Rhenanus tells in the preface (dated 1532), he thoroughly went through the text once more (percurri non prorsum indiligenter), and made some corrections (quaedam accuratius excussi). Rhenanus tells also that he made use for this second edition of a manuscript which king Matthias Corvinus, king of Hungary, 'Martis & Palladis studiis inclytus', had once donated to his friend Jacob Spiegel. (Preface laef aa3 recto) The text of the works of Tacitus is preceded by a learned treatise of Rhenanus of 64 pages: 'Thesaurus locutionum constructionumque vocum Tacito'. At the end we find 14 pages with the notes of the Italian humanist, jurist and classical scholar Andrea Alciato (Andreas Alciatus), 1492-1550. Alciatus is best known for his famous Emblematum liber (Augsburg, 1531), which saw numerous reissues and revisions, and imitations. The firm of Froben published in 1544 a reissue of our 1533 edition) (Provenance: From the Rostagni Library. 'The Rostagni private library has been built over a time of 133 years, between 1880 and 2013, by 3 generations of collectors: Augusto Gabinio (1863-1939), internist, his nephew Augusto Rostagni (1892-1961), classical philologist at the University of Turin, and his son Luigi Rostagni (1932), Operational Director. (.) Augusto Rostagni thaught Ancient literature in various Italian Universities. In 1928 he was appointed professor in Latin literature at the University of Turin, an office he fulfilled until his death in 1961. He became one of Italy's most authorative philologists of the 20th century. He held positions of President of the Turin Institute of Classical Philology, Dean of the Department of Literature and Philosophy, Editor of the Rivista di Filologia Classica, President of the 'Accademia delle Scienze di Torino'. He was a well-known member of many Italian and foreign academies and institutions, amongst them the Accademia dei Lincei. The Department of Philology, Linguistics & Classical Tradition of the University of Turin is named after him.'
