Sophologium. Lyon: Nikolaus Philippi, [um 1477]

Biography of Jacobus Magnus (Jacques Legrand)

Jacobus Magnus (ca 1365-1422) was born in Toulouse, France. He became an Augustinian

Friar. (Jacobus Magnus was the Latinized version of his French name Jacques LeGrand). Magnus was a scholar who studied the scriptures as well as the ancient philosophers. He held the position of professor of Philosophy and Theology at University of Padua. Magnus wrote commentary on Aristotle’s works as well as composing a number of other books. He was also a noted preacher and was noticed by the royal court of Charles VI. He criticized the conduct of the queen, Isabeau of Bavaria. Charles VI sent him to England as a negotiator with the English court since the French had been defeated at Agincourt.

The Sophologium is a collection of passages from the works of ancient and medieval writers including Muhammad Abu Mashar (Persian astrologer), Seneca, and Chaucer. The term comes from two Greek words “sophia” (wisdom) and “logos” (study). Basically it deals with the social aspects of morality (i.e., reflecting on vices and virtues) and science. The author Jacobus Magnus took passages from philosophers, orators, theologians, poets and scientists and used these as a guide to life. It may have been meant as an aid to preachers. This book was very popular during the Renaissance with 23 editions printed and was translated into both French and English. The famous printer William Caxton translated it into English in 1487 and named it “The Book of Good Manners.

This copy.

Folio, 28 cm (11 inch) The Lyon imprints are relatively rare. I found less then 30 copies worldwide. Condition: Modern vellum binding. It has 119 leaves, (same as the Digital copy, you can look at it online) The first blank is missing. On the last page someone, inexplicably cut out the word LYON. Else complete! The first 20 leaves and the last 5 carry a brown stain. There is some staing throughout. Probably grease. Not burned, or something like that. The paper is very crisp and not weak, Rubricated throughout. Large margins. Own a book, that is more rare then the Gutenberg Bible, with an interesting content. Of this book there is on other edition available through ABE books for 55.000 $
