Descrizione libro: Basle, J. Froben,1520. FIRST EDITION thus. 4to. pp. 115 (i). Roman letter, some Greek. Fine white on black woodcut historiated initials (one eight line), superb woodcut title border by Hans Holbein the younger, "at head, boys playing, and at foot, the story of C. Mucius Scaevola and King Porsenna. On the right hand Mucius, a young Roman who had made his way into the Etruscan camp, is represented slaying the secretary of Porsenna in mistake for the king himself; on the left he is seen thrusting his hand itto the fire in order to show his indifference to the order that he should be burnt alive. In the background is Rome, during the siege of which by Porsenna the incidents are said to have occurred. [Livy ii 12]" (McKerrow and Ferguson 8, on the copy used in England.) Froben's large woodcut Asclepius device on verso of last, some contemporary marginalia, two contemporary ms. ownership inscriptions on verso of last, "Edmund Pulleyn. his book." and "codicis estis possesor nomine dritos", Chatsworth library bookplate on pastedown. Some light, mostly marginal, waterstaining, large light oil splash on two ll, verso of last browned and dusty, occasional marginal thumb mark. A very good, well margined, copy in English mottled calf c. 1800, covers bordered with double gilt rule, spine with raised bands, richly gilt in compartments, inner dentelles gilt, a.e.r. First separate, best and definitive edition of the Epigrams of St. Thomas More, beautifully printed by Froben with superb woodcut decoration by Hans Holbein the younger. More translated epigrams from the 'Greek Anthology' of Maximos Planudes into Ciceronian Latin which, after circulating in manuscript, were collected by Erasmus and twice printed by Froben in 1518 (with the third edition of More's Utopia and a different collection of epigrams of a more sober and religious nature by Erasmus). They were first published separately in 1520 in this edition which was substantially revised by More for its first independent appearance and presents quite a different text. Three of the epigrams which appeared in the 1518 printing are omitted and thirteen new ones added. This is the edition on which all subsequent editions were based. More's Epigrammata is divided in two parts; in the 'Progymnasmata', the first part, he vied with Lily for the aptest rendering of epigrams from the 'Greek Anthology' into Latin and in the 'Epigrammata' proper he composed his own epigrams. In the dedicatory letter to the German humanist Willibald Pirckheimer, Beatus Rhenanus (a well known editor of classical texts, an associate of Froben, and a friend of both Erassmus and Pirckheimer) writes glowingly about More and his epigrams praising his wit, language, style, learning and ability as both translator and composer. Little is known about when and why the poems were first written or how they first circulated though they seem to have been written over a period of as much as twenty years. In them More reworks material from many classical writers and weaves in biblical texts, adapts traditional jests, Aesopic fables, and translates two near contemporaneous English love lyrics. His topics are extremely diverse and his range much broader than his fellow humanists, though he eschews a favorite renaissance type, the erotic epigram. At one extreme he writes about foolish astrologers, prostitutes, cuckolds, a frenchified courtier; at the other there are reflections upon kingship, government, the brevity of life and death. In mood too the epigrams vary tremendously. There are jokes, slapstick comedy, scatology, satiric jabs, expressions of friendship, ironic reflections, lyric moments and epitaphs. More also enjoyed writing variations upon a theme as in his seven epigrams upon two beggars, one blind and one lame, who are each others support. There are a wide range of addressees including several to Henry VIII, humanist friends, his children, a fat priest, a woman More loved long ago, the Archbishops of York and Canterbury an.

A little soiling to paper boards, slight bump to head of spine, but quite an excellent copy, and pristine internally. Calling it "a marvellous book," Franklin includes the "Utopia" in a group of five Ashendene productions of medium proportions (mostly small folio) "which in scope and skill have as much appeal as any Ashendene books." This is the first Ashendene with marginal notes in red, and the elegant initials, which constitute one of Eric Gill's earliest commissions, are also in red. One always hopes to find special press books like this one in immaculate internal condition, as here, but achieving this is more and more difficult now.

Title within typographical border, fine additional engraved architectural title page with portrait of More within oval above, with figures of Prudence and Eloquence to sides, signed 'W. Marshall sculpsit', small woodcut initials, typogrphical head-pieces and ornaments, Imprimatur on verso of title page and on leaf M6 verso, 'April. 12. 1638. Imprimatur. Th. Wykes.', leather bookplate of Vernon Watney on pastedown. Light age yellowing, upper margin cut a little close, fractionally trimming a few headlines. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in English straight grained morocco c.1800, covers gilt ruled in a panel design, flat spine gilt ruled and gilt lettered, extremities slightly rubbed. a.e.g. Second separate edition of the Epigrams of St. Thomas More, the first to be printed in England, and one of the rare editions of any works of More to be printed in England after his death. More translated epigrams from the 'Greek Anthology' of Maximos Planudes into Ciceronian Latin which, after circulating in manuscript, were collected by Erasmus and twice printed by Froben in 1518. They were first published separately in 1520 in an edition which was substantially revised by More for its first independent appearance and presents quite a different text. Three of the epigrams which appeared in the 1518 printing were omitted and thirteen new ones added. Remarkably this is the only separate printing of these epigrams since that edition of 1520, and even more remarkably it was published in England where St. Thomas More status as a Catholic Martyr would normally have precluded publication; it is the only edition of the Epigrammata listed in STC. More's Epigrammata is divided in two parts; in the 'Progymnasmata', here placed at the end, he vied with Lily for the aptest rendering of epigrams from the 'Greek Anthology' into Latin and in the 'Epigrammata' proper he composed his own epigrams. Little is known about when and why the poems were first written or how they first circulated though they seem to have been written over a period of as much as twenty years. In them More reworks material from many classical writers and weaves in biblical texts, adapts traditional jests, Aesopic fables, and translates two near contemporaneous English love lyrics. His topics are extremely diverse and his range much broader than his fellow humanists, though he eschews a favorite renaissance type, the erotic epigram. At one extreme he writes about foolish astrologers, prostitutes, cuckolds, a frenchified courtier; at the other there are reflections upon kingship, government, the brevity of life and death.

More also enjoyed writing variations upon a theme as in his seven epigrams upon two beggars, one blind and one lame, who are each others support. There are a wide range of addressees including several to Henry VIII, humanist friends, his children, a fat priest, a woman More loved long ago, the Archbishops of York and Canterbury and in some instances himself, along with dramatic dialogues and monologues. The epigram on Wolsey is remarkable as a dedicatory epigram by proxy, begging the Cardinal's acceptance of Erasmus' New Testament of 1516. "(it is the) vivid interest in life in all its aspects that makes More's Epigrammata incomparably the best book of Latin epigrams in the sixteenth century" Leicester Bradner. STC. 18086.

Tiny ownership blind stamp to title page, typewritten catalogue slip tipped-in to front free endpaper. Spotting to frontispiece and title page, occasional light spotting to contents. An excellent copy, handsomely bound. Portrait frontispiece, engraved title page. First Dibdin edition. Editor Thomas Frognall Dibdin (17761847) was a lawyer and then deacon with a passion for books and antiquities. In 1802 he published his first bibliographical volume, An Introduction to the Knowledge of Rare and Valuable Editions of the Greek and Latin Classics. It was well-received and brought him to the attention of George John, second Earl Spencer, a serious book collector who became his patron. Dibdin catalogued the Earl's library, and "Seymour De Ricci commented that it was 'the handsomest and most elaborate catalogue of a private library yet issued' (De Ricci, 75). Its principal value lay in Dibdin's careful establishment of the principle of first-hand examination of books, an important advance in the study of bibliography" (ODNB). Dibdin published an additional 46 books, many on bibliography and collecting, founded the Roxburghe Club, and popularised the term bibliomania. "His main contributions seem to have been his zealous enthusiasm in promoting book collecting generally among the aristocracy, as well as putting forth the principle of first-hand examination of books in the compilation of bibliographies" (ODNB). This copy of his edition of More's Utopia is particularly handsomely bound. Codice libro della libreria 81488

Descrizione libro: Glasgow, 1743. Leather. Condizione libro: Good/No Jacket. Octavo, 139pp., Leather binding has some scuffs. Gilt lettered spine label has a chip. Folding frontispiece illustration of Thomas More. Translated from the Latin by Gilbert Burnet D.D. The translator Gilbert Burnet (1643 1715) was an erudite Scottish theologian eventually becoming Bishop of Salisbury. He was fluent in Dutch, French, Latin, Greek,and Hebrew and respected as a preacher and academic, as well as a writer and historian. This celebrated and influential work was first translated into English in 1556 by Ralph Robinson and Burnet points out in his Preface that he himself tries to give a more accurate and complete version than the earlier one. Burnet suspected that Robinson's translation was actually the work of More himself which would account for its freedom and deviations from the original Latin text. Codice libro della libreria 024274
