1554 Ancient Encyclopedia By Pliny Froben Gorgeous Calf Binding Huge Folio


Monte_Cristo_Rare_Books Store
1554 ANCIENT ENCYCLOPEDIA by PLINY Froben GORGEOUS CALF BINDING Huge Folio PLINIUS (PLINY) SECUNDUS (The Elder), C(aius) Historiae mundi libri XXXVII ex postrema ad vestustos codices collatione cum annotationibus et indice. 1554. 18 p. l., 663, [214] p COMPLETE! HUGE FOLIO measures 15 3/4 inches by 12 inches.

The Historia naturalis of C. Plinius Secundus (the Elder, 23/4 – 79 A.D.) is the largest extant prose work of Latin antiquity; basing his work on Greek authors such as Aristotle and Theophrast he was able to create a relatively rigid system within his work: After the index follow 18 books devoted to nature as such (e.g. cosmology, astronomy, geography, anthropology, zoology and botany) and 18 on the relationship between man and nature (e.g. medicinal substances, natural resources). This work became a model for later works of this nature (see DNP 9, Sp. 1135-1141).

The device used in this book is Froben’s bigger one and designed by Holbein. The majority of the larger initials, eight-line high, are taken from an Alphabet with scenes from the old testament and mythology (Mueller No. 140), a number from the Hercules-Alphabet (Mueller No. 139), some of the smaller with mythological and genre scenes (Mueller No. 141), all designed by H. Holbein the Younger and of which the first two are cut by J. Faber. Four of these initials are copies of the Holbein Alphabet depicting children and putti (Mueller No. 133).

Binding is rubbed and scuffed. Heavily on the edges. Calf over wood boards. Gorgeous stamping to boards. Pages are age toned especially to the margins. A small amount of wrinkling to a few pges.
