Description: SUMPTUOUS EDITION OF ST. CYRILL'S COLLECTED WORKS WITH THE ORIGINAL GREEK TEXT Cyrill, Saint. Tou en agiois patros emon Kyrillou Ierosolymon archiepiskopou Ta euriskomena panta. S. Cyrilli archiepiscopi Hierosolymitani Opera quae exstant omnia, et ejus nomine circumferuntur, ad manuscriptos codices, nec-non ad superiores editiones castigata ... Cura & studio Antonii- Augustini Toutte, presbyter. Venice, Typografia Sansoniana, 1763 [Venetiis : exudebant Franciscum Sansoni et Antonius Zatta, 1763].Folio, full vellum, pp. [4], XIV, ccl columns, ccli-ccxlii [i.e. cclxii], 411, 412-419 col., 420-473, [3], [1 plate]. Greek-Latin parallel text. Head- and tail-pieces engraved by Francesco Zucchi and Francesco Sansoni. Between col. 413-414 the engraved plate with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, also called the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, or the Church of the Resurrection by Eastern Christians, is a church within the Christian Quarter of the walled Old City of Jerusalem. It is a few steps away from the Muristan.The site is venerated as Golgotha (the Hill of Calvary), where Jesus was crucified and is said also to contain the place where Jesus was buried (the Sepulchre). The church has been a paramount "and for many Christians the most important" pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century, as the purported site of the resurrection of Jesus. Today it also serves as the headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, while control of the building is shared between several Christian churches and secular entities in complicated arrangements essentially unchanged for centuries. Today, the church is home to branches of Eastern Orthodoxy and Oriental Orthodoxy as well as to Roman Catholicism. Anglican and Protestant Christians have no permanent presence in the Church "and some have regarded the alternative Garden Tomb, elsewhere in Jerusalem, as the true place of Jesus's crucifixion and resurrection". Beautiful second absolute edition of Saint Cyrill's «Collected Works» in the original Greek language, edited by Dom Antoine-Augustin Toutte (1677-1718), a Benedictine of the Maurist Congregation. This second edition of the works of Cyril of Jerusalem follows the first printed at Paris in 1720, also edited by Toutte. The scholar also wrote three dissertations on the life, writings and doctrine of Saint Cyril, bishop of Jerusalem and Doctor of the Church, which here precede the Greek/Latin text of Cyril himself.References: IT\ICCU\RMLE\033814. Graesse II, 317. Ebert I, 495.

Milan: Fontana, 1831-43.23 vols in large 8vo, half calf on blue paper, gilt titles and decorations at spine. Greek and Latin on facing columns. Important Milan critical edition, edited by Bernard de Montfaucon, edited b of the collected works of Saint John Chrysostom, archibishop and patriarch of Costantinople, probably the finest preacher of every time. John Chrysostom (c. 347-407, Greek: Ἰωάννης ὁ Χρυσόστομος), Archbishop of Constantinople, was an important Early Church Father. He is known for his eloquence in preaching and public speaking, his denunciation of abuse of authority by both ecclesiastical and political leaders, the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, and his ascetic sensibilities. After his death in 407 (or, according to some sources, during his life) he was given the Greek epithet chrysostomos, meaning "golden mouthed" in English, and Anglicized to Chrysostom. The Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches honor him as a saint and count him among the Three Holy Hierarchs, together with Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzus. He is recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church as a saint and as a Doctor of the Church. The Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria also recognizes John Chrysostom as a saint. John is known in Christianity chiefly as a preacher, theologian and liturgist. Among his homilies, eight directed against Judaizing Christians remain controversial for their impact on the development of Christian antisemitism. Of none of the other Greek Fathers do we possess so many writings, that can be divided into the "Opuscula", the "Homilies" and the "Letters". The chief "Opuscula" all date from the earlier days of his literary activity while the following writings deal with monastical subjects. The "Homilies" count with commentaries on books of Holy Scripture, groups of homilies on special subjects and a great number of single homilies.References: IT\ICCU\TO0\0551040. OCLC, 2411066.

Red and black title-page with copper-plated illustration. Text in Ancient Greek and Latin. Rare and sumptuous Parisian edition of the Collected Works of Saint Basil, with Greek-Latin parallel text.The teachings of St. Basil the Great, who fighted against the Arianism during the 4th century A.D. The works include the dogmatic treatises against the heresy, homilies on Psalms, doctrinal, moral and panegyrical sermons, ascetical treatises and letters.Bishop of Caesarea and one of the most distinguished Doctors of the Church, Basil (probably 329-379 A.D.) ranks after Athanasius as a defender of the Oriental Church against the heresies of the fourth century. With his friend Gregory of Nazianzus and his brother Gregory of Nyssa, he makes up the trio known as "The Three Cappadocians", far outclassing the other two in practical genius and actual achievement. Physically delicate and occupying his exalted position but a few years, Basil did magnificent and enduring work in an age of more violent world convulsions than Christianity has since experienced. By personal virtue he attained distinction in an age of saints, and his purity, his monastic fervour, his stern simplicity, his friendship for the poor became traditional in the history of Christian asceticism.

Estimated Price: €500 - €700

Description: THE BEST EDITION OF ST. JUSTIN'S WORKSIustinus, Saint. Tou en agiois Patros emon Joustinou philosophou kai martyros ta Euriskomena panta ... Justini philosophi et martyris Opera quae exstant omnia. Nec non Tatiani adversus Graecos oratio, Athenagorae ... Cum Mss. Codicibus collata, ac novis interpretationibus, notis, admonitionibus & praefatione illustrata, cum Indicibus copiosis. Opera & studio unius ex Monachis Congregationis S. Mauri. Venetiis : apud Augustinum Savioli, 1747. Folio, contemporary stiff vellum, pp. [4], CXX, 668, XL. Title-page printed in red and black, text in Greek and Latin. Sumptuous and important Venetian edition of St. Justin's collected works, the best philological edition ever published. Justin Martyr, also known as Saint Justin (c. 100-165 AD), was an early Christian apologist, and is regarded as the foremost interpreter of the theory of the Logos in the 2nd century. He was martyred, alongside some of his students, and is considered a saint by the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Church, and the Eastern Orthodox Church. Most of his works are lost, but two apologies and a dialogue did survive. The First Apology, his most well known text, passionately defends the morality of the Christian life, and provides various ethical and philosophical arguments to convince the Roman emperor, Antoninus, to abandon the persecution of the fledgling sect. Further, he also makes the theologically-innovative suggestion that the "seeds of Christianity" (manifestations of the Logos acting in history) actually predated Christ's incarnation. This notion allows him to claim many historical Greek philosophers (including Socrates and Plato), in whose works he was well studied, as unknowing Christians.References: IT\ICCU\MODE\027997. Dibdin I, 181 (quoting the Paris edition of 1742): «This is by far the best edition, in all repects, and [...] was reprinted at Venice in 1747, folio». Hoffmann II, 503. OCLC 6270688.

Errors in numbering of some initial pages. Title-page with a richly figured frame. Xylographic head-pieces and initials.Beautiful work of historical chronicle prepared by Eusebius and Hieronymus (the "Chronicon"), with the subsequent contributions from other writers, like Simon Millanges, Arnauld de Pontac and San Prospero Aquitano.The Chronicon or Chronicle was a work in two books by Eusebius of Caesarea. It seems to have been compiled in the early 4th century. It contained a world chronicle from Abraham until the vicennalia of Constantine I in A.D. 325. Book 1 contained sets of extracts from earlier writers; book 2 contained a technically innovative list of dates and events in tabular format.The original Greek text is lost, although substantial quotations exist in later chronographers. Both books are mostly preserved in an Armenian translation. Book 2 is entirely preserved in the Latin translation by Jerome, who continued the Chronicle until the year 378 A.D..Eusebius Caesariensis (Eusebius of Cesarea)(265-339/340) was a Roman historian, exegete, and Christian polemicist of Greek descent. He became the bishop of Caesarea about 314. Together with Pamphilus, he was a scholar of the Biblical canon and is regarded as an extremely well learned Christian of his time. He wrote Demonstrations of the Gospel, Preparations for the Gospel, and On Discrepancies between the Gospels, studies of the Biblical text. As "Father of Church History" he produced the Ecclesiastical History, On the Life of Pamphilus, the Chronicle and On the Martyrs.Saint Jerome (Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus; ca. 347-420) was an Illyrian Latin Christian priest, confessor, theologian and historian, who also became a Doctor of the Church. He is best known for his translation of the Bible into Latin (the Vulgate), and his commentaries on the Gospel. His list of writings is extensive. He is recognised as a saint by the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Lutheran Church, and the Church of England (Anglican Communion).References: IT\ICCU\BVEE\039690 (8 copies).

Antoine Arnauld (1612-1694) was a French priest whose family was closely related to Jansenism. His theological works echoed his propensity for going upstream. His first important work on The frequent Communion followed Saint-Cyran idea that it was not right to receive the sacraments if not completely free from sin and was fiercely attacked by the Jesuits for its effect of keeping people far from the Church. The most important part of his career was then spent for defending Jansenius' critiques against the Catholicism and the prerogatives of the Gallican Church on French clergy and laymen. The present work, which obtained the praise of the popes Clement IX and Innocent XI, was the treatise he produced just after the so called Clementine Peace, that is a strong attack against Protestantism for reassuring Rome he had left his revolutionary ideas and thus deserved the absolution. Even if the work gained huge esteem, his everlasting Jansenist attitude forced him to exile in the Netherlands, where he continued to write polemically against Catholicism, Protestantism and Jesuits.References: IT\ICCU\VIAE\023320.

Some finger-staining in places of margin. Lower margin with one wormhole.Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514)Schedel enrolled at the Leipzig University at the age of sixteen in 1456, he completed master studies of liberal arts and attended lectures in jurisprudence and Canon law. In 1461 he joined the circle of humanists around Peter Luder and followed him to Padua in late 1463. Next to medicine, he also studied anatomy and surgery at the University of Padua and eventually earned a doctorate in 1466. Next to lessons in medicine, he also attended lectures in physics and Greek and thus was one of the first Germans ever to gain experience in the Greek language. Between 1470 and 1477 he was active as physicist appointed by the city of Nördlingen and joined the fraternity of the 'Kartäuser im Christgarten' (Cartusians in Christ's Garden). Up until his death Hartmann Schedel was a well-respected Nuremberg citizen and had a successful medical practice. Together with other physicists, he was in an influential circle of medical scholars with great humanistic ambitions. However, his reputation neither originated from his profession nor from his social status, but is owed to his main work, the so-called 'Schedel'sche Weltchronik' (Nuremberg Chronicle). Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

Amazing Carved petrified Fossil stone statue of Diplodocus

Lot 435: Amazing Carved petrified Fossil stone statue of Diplodocus

by Eternity Gallery

March 8, 2015, 2:00 PM EST

Tampa, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $100 - $500

Description: Amazing Carved petrified Fossil stone statue of Diplodocus Length: 11 cm; Weight: 74.54 g; Genuine carved petrified fossilized stone; Literature: Diplodocus is an extinct genus of diplodocid sauropod dinosaur whose fossils were first discovered in 1877 by S. W. Williston. The generic name, coined by Othniel Charles Marsh in 1878, is a Neo-Latin term derived from Greek Ï (diplos) "double" and Ï (dokos) "beam",[1][3] in reference to its double-beamed chevron bones located in the underside of the tail. These bones were initially believed to be unique to Diplodocus; however, they have since then been discovered in other members of the diplodocid family and in non-diplodocid sauropods such as Mamenchisaurus. This genus of dinosaurs lived in what is now western North America at the end of the Jurassic Period. Diplodocus is one of the more common dinosaur fossils found in the Upper Morrison Formation, a sequence of shallow marine and alluvial sediments deposited about 155 to 148 million years ago, in what is now termed the Kimmeridgian and Tithonian stages (Diplodocus itself ranged from about 154 to 150 million years ago[4]). The Morrison Formation records an environment and time dominated by gigantic sauropod dinosaurs such as Camarasaurus, Barosaurus, Apatosaurus and Brachiosaurus.[5] Diplodocus is among the most easily identifiable dinosaurs, with its classic dinosaur shape, long neck and tail, and four sturdy legs. For many years, it was the longest dinosaur known. Its great size may have been a deterrent to the predators Allosaurus and Ceratosaurus: their remains have been found in the same strata, which suggests they coexisted with Diplodocus.   Low Estimate: 100 High Estimate: 500 Orignal: Yes

by Myers Auction Gallery

March 8, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Estimated Price: $600 - $800

Description: Bibliothecae Historicae Libri Quindecim - 1559 ex. Borghese Bibliotheque Library Book. Henri Etienne, Geneve 1559. Hardcover book bound in period vellum binding with ink lettering on spine. 847 pages. Preface in Latin by Ulrich Fugger, who was at the time protector of Henri Etienne. Text in Greek by Diodorus of Sicily. Diodorus' work contains numerous historical facts which aren't found in any other work by an author from Antiquity and would otherwise have been lost without him. A first edition of1539 contained only books 16 through 20 which were at the time believed to be the only ones surviving. A beautifully printed and impressive volume, in the tradition of the magnificent Greek folios printed by Robert Etienne in Paris. In good condition with some scattered foxing and some wear to the original vellum binding. There is a small piece cutout from the very first page. Measures 13.3 inches by 9 inches. One of several early books and manuscripts from a collection of rare early Latin and Italain vellum books, including incunabula (1478) from the Borghese Palace library in Rome.Provenance: Prince Camillo Borghese, 6th Prince of Sulmona (1775-1832), married to Pauline Bonaparte in 1803. Remained in Borghese estate until 1892. Prince Paolo Borghese, 9th Prince of Sulmona (1845-1920) was forced to sell the contents of the Borghese Bibliotheque and Borghese Palace apartment, grounds and property to the state due to the financial crash of the Bank of Italy in 1891. The collection of manuscripts and several paintings being offering were purchased by Bradford deWolf at the renowned Borghese Bibliotheque and Palace sale in 1892.The collection was later inherited by Dorothy 'Doda' deWolf of Washington, DC. She was born Princess Dorota Drucka Lubecka, the daughter of Countess Hegwige Opersdorff and Prince Francis Xavier Drucki Lubecki, a member of one of the oldest princely families of Europe. When the family's ancestral estate in Baltow, Poland was occupied by the Nazis at the beginning of World War II and later taken by the Russians, they fled to Paris, and in 1952, emigrated to the United States. Princess Dorota, known simply as 'Doda,' found employment in Wisconsin as an au pair, and later moved to Washington, DC where she worked for Elizabeth Arden. She eventually embarked on a very successful, 30-year real estate career at Begg - now Long & Foster - winning numerous awards in her field, as well as remaining very active in Polish affairs, including spearheading a Polish Cultural Center in Washington.In 1960, Doda married Francis Colt deWolf, Jr., known as 'Colt,' and for 34 years, Doda and Colt deWolf were a prominent couple in Washington Society, known for their constant hospitality and infectious vitality. Colt was a direct descendent of Chris Colt, a wealthy textile industrialist whose brother, Sam Colt, invented the Colt 45 revolver. Chris Colt's grandson, Bradford deWolf, was a purchaser at the great sales of the contents of the Borghese Palace, which took place in Italy in the 1890s. The property that Bradford deWolf purchased from the Borghese Palace passed down to his son, Francis Colt deWolf, I, who came to Washington in 1922 to work for the State Department as one of the first heads of the newly created Communications Department. The deWolfs, with their impressive Borghese furniture, moved into the largest private residence in Georgetown, the Bodisco House. Colt and Doda deWolf inherited these historic objects.
