THE ILIAD OF HOMER FROM THE TEXT OF WOLF WITH ENGLISH NOTES AND FLAXMAN'S ILLUSTRATIVE DESIGNS 1834 Antique Epic Poetry Plates

by National Book Auctions

May 31, 2015, 12:00 PM GMT

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $70 - $200

Description: Title: The Iliad of Homer, from the Text of Wolf. With English Notes and Flaxman's Illustrative DesignsAuthor: Homer - Homer is best known as the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey. He was believed by the ancient Greeks to have been the first and greatest of the epic poets. Author of the first known literature of Europe, he had a lasting effect on the Western canon.Whether and when he lived is unknown. Herodotus estimates that Homer lived 400 years before his own time, which would place him at around 850 BCE. Pseudo-Herodotus estimates that he was born 622 years before Xerxes I placed a pontoon bridge over the Hellespont in 480 BCE, which would place him at 1102 BCE, 168 years after the fall of Troy in 1270 BCE. These two end points are 252 years apart, representative of the differences in dates given by the other sources.The importance of Homer to the ancient Greeks is described in Plato's "Republic", which portrays him as the protos didaskalos, "first teacher", of the tragedians, the hegemon paideias, "leader of Greek culture", and the ten Hellada pepaideukon, "teacher of [all] Greece". Homer's works, which are about fifty percent speeches, provided models in persuasive speaking and writing that were emulated throughout the ancient and medieval Greek worlds. Fragments of Homer account for nearly half of all identifiable Greek literary papyrus finds in Egypt. (Courtesy of Wikipedia)Editor: Cornelius Conway Felton - Cornelius Conway Felton, the twentieth president of Harvard College was born in West Newbury, Massachusetts, November 6, 1807. His early education was gained in spite of obstacles which would have discouraged a less enthusiastic scholar; and although he had the advantage of good instruction in the classics only one year and nine months before he entered college, his slender opportunities were most conscientiously improved. When he entered Harvard College in 1823,—according to the testimony of an intimate friend and classmate,—“his acquisitions, especially in the Greek and Latin classics, were far beyond the requirements of that institution, and, under the circumstances, quite astonishing.” He graduated in 1827, with high rank in his class. After teaching school two years in Genesee, New York, he was appointed Latin Tutor in Harvard College in 1829, and Greek Tutor in 1830. From 1832 to 1834 he was College Professor of Greek, and from 1834 to 1860 Eliot Professor of Greek Literature. He was made President of the University in 1860, and held this office until his death, February 26, 1862.Publisher: Hilliard, Gray, and CompanyCity: BostonYear: 1834Printing Information: Second EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: xiv/476 pagesWidth: 5.75" Height: 8.75"Book Details: "The text ... is an exact reprint of the Leipzig edition published by Tauchnitz in 1829" (C. C. Felton's preface, p. iii)Condition / Notes: This antique half leather volume with marbled sides has a detached front board and detaching cracked spine cover. The spine displays loss at the top edge. Minor loss of material is visible at the corners. The text block is intact. The pages exhibit faint water markings and minor rippling at the top and bottom edge. Scattered light foxing can be seen throughout. This work is illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Homer and numerous other plates. The title appears in Greek at the top of the title page.For lots which include only books, our shipping charge applies to any address within the fifty United States. For lots which are not books, the stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states. Within those parameters, the shipping cost for this lot will be: $4.50

Milano, Italy

Estimated Price: €300 - €400

Description: 1. HEINECKE'S HISTORY OF ROMAN AND GERMAN LAWHeinecke, Jo. Gottlieb. Historia Juris Civilis Romani, ac Germanici, qua utriusque origo et usus in Germania ex ipsis fontibus ostenditur [...]. Venetiis, Ex Typographia Balleoniana, 1742.12mo (150x87 mm), stiff velum binding, gilt framed titles on an orange label at spine, visible joints, gilt edges, pp. xxxij, 612. Xylographic decorations at first leaves, four folding plates with family trees.History of German and Roman Law by Heinecke, where he traces back in the classical sources the origin of both laws, the convergences of customs, and the uses of these jurisprudence in the present and in the past.The work reports many quotes from Latin and Greek authors, (in original language) and provides the etymology of many terms later entered in the common juridical lexicon.Johann Gottlieb Heinecke, (Eisenberg, 1681-Halle, 1741; Latinized Eineccius), teacher of philosophy and law at Halle and Frankfurt , was a renown German jurist, follower of the juristic current named «philosophical», connected to the thought of Thomasius and Pufendorf. As opposed to the jurists that believed that jurisprudence was formed by a series of rules, derived from customs, Heinecke considered it as rational science, ascribable to series of principles to be considered during the activities of making laws. 2. HEINECKE'S ELEMENTS OF GERMAN LAWHeinecke, Johann Gottlieb. Elementa Juris Germanici tum Veteris, tum Hodierni. Tomus primus [& Secundus ] .

Xylographic headletters and decorations at first leaves. Scarce edition of Heinecke’s treatise on ancient and modern Germanic Civil Law . Germanic jurisprudence is considered to have been originated by written and unwritten customs of the barbarian tribes living north of Alps at Roman times. Germanic Laws were described in Germania by Tacito, but also by Julius Caesar, Pomponius Mela and Strabo, that highlighted differences and similarity with the roman customs. Heinecke starts from ancient times, to track back the origins of the national law, following all the evolutions up to his age.Johann Gottlieb Heinecke, (Eisenberg, 1681-Halle, 1741; Latinized Eineccius), teacher of philosophy and law at Halle and Frankfurt , was a renown German jurist, follower of the juristic current named «philosophical», connected to the thought of Thomasius and Pufendorf. As opposed to the jurists that believed that jurisprudence was formed by a series of rules, derived from customs, Heinecke considered it as rational science, ascribable to series of principles to be considered during the activities of making laws.

Condition Report: 1. Usual foxing due to the paper's quality, some waterstains to covers, but overall a good copy. 2. Light foxing, but a good copy.

[Sources of Law in Greek] Theophilus, 1657

Milano, Italy

Estimated Price: €500 - €600

Description: JUSTINIAN'S INSTITUTIONS IN GREEK WITH THE ORIGINAL PARALLEL TEXTTheophilus Antecessor (Fabrot, Charles Annibal -translator). Theophili Antecessoris Institutionum libri IV. Parisiis, Apud Viduam Mathurini Du Puis, via Iacobaea, sub signo Coronae aureae, 1657.4to (243x175 mm), full stiff vellum, sepia ink handwritten titles on second spine section, edges sprayed in blue ink, pp. [16], 720. Red and black title page with engraved printer device with a Crown and the motto Donec totum ambiat orbem . Text in greek, roman and latin types, xylographic headletters and decorations.Second edition of Justinian's Institutiones edited by Teophilus, one of the compiler of the work, appointed by Justinian himself. In the same period in which it had started the Law reorganization in the Pandectae, Justinian asked the jurists Trebonianus, Theophilus e Dorotheus to create a manual that summarized the items of the Roman Law to be used by the students of the Empire. The Institutiones remained, along the centuries, a cornerstone of the matter because of the clarity and completeness, and for that reasons were utilized by the most important scholars as a skeleton to build their own commentary on it. Charles Annibal Fabrot (1580-1659), French jurist, translates Theophilus’ Institutiones proposing the original greek text with the latin translation on the front column.Theophilus was a byzantine jurist that lived around VI century. His fame is related to the compilation of Justinian’s Institutiones and to the Parafrasi that he edited on that work. His operas gained a huge fame and a great diffusion with the coming of the printing, published with the Corpus Iuris Civilis or with Paratitla . References: (ICCU, IT\ICCU\ FOGE\015726). OCLC, 53372144 locates only 3 copies in USA (Boston College, Duke University Libraries and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary).

[Manuscripts, Justinian Institutions] 17th-18th cent

by Bibliopathos

June 10, 2015, 5:00 PM CET

Milano, Italy

Estimated Price: €1,500 - €1,800

Description: UNPUBLISHED COMMENTARY ON JUSTINIAN’S CODE CONCERNING CIVIL LAWFOLLOWED BY A BRIEF HISTORY OF CIVIL LAW[LAW MANUSCRIPT]. C[ode]x Iure Civili Libri II. [TOGETHER WITH:] Iuris Civilis Historia. [Italy: before 1760-1768].4to (240x180 mm), 18th century vellum on paperboards binding (a bit worn), with many handwritten notes to covers, the title written in brown ink to front board, visible joints at spine, pp. from 3 to 240 [actually, 241], [6], [2, blank], [1, title], 24, [1, index], [1, blank]. Text in Latin, handwritten in brown ink. The Institutiones had been requested by the emperor Justinian I to the renowned jurists Trebonianus, Teophilus and Doroteus in order to resume the Roman Civil Law for the students of the empire. They worked as a fundamental reference for the ancient law from that moment on, becoming the skeleton on which all following jurists would base their commentaries.The present manuscript is precisely one of those commentaries, written by an 18th century jurist and never published. The text follows step by step the structure of chapters and titles of the Institutiones, giving for every excerpt a clear and in-depht account.Provenance: I. Many contemporary handwritten inscriptions on the vellum binding. At front cover, mention to different religious authorities such as Mons. Tomaso Ant.nio Scotti and Mons. Card. Moriggia di S.ta Maria Maggiore; the names are followed by the place, Pavia. On the very same cover, the title of the volume was written in brown ink. On the back board, a different hand traces in brown ink: Carolus Antonius Nervianus Persius Papiensis, Venerandi Seminarij Alumnus sub disciplina D. B.ris [?] Francisci Bernerij eiusdem Rectori dignissimi Anno Domini 1701 4 nonas Mensis Martij. Just after, the signature by a different hand Aloysius Persi Pomus Papiensis. II. At front paste-down, inscription in brown ink concerning the sale of the manuscript, quoting the place and year of the transaction: Dato a Lacello gli 11 Luglio 1768.III. Just before the index if the first work, handwritten note Atti seguiti a favor della Com.ta di Cavaglio per l’anno 1760 de’ quali è dovuto l’emolumento. 14 7mbre Bando con imbig.ne di far la vindemia prima del tempo ordinato. The present and the former indications, act as a temporal mark for the datation of the manuscript, whose text was copied for sure before both notes.

Condition Report: Normal traces of use, but overall a fascinating and well preserved manuscript in its first binding.

Medieval Gold Ring with Octahedral Diamond

by TimeLine Auctions

May 29, 2015, 10:00 AM BST

Brentwood, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £800 - £1,200

Description: 14th-15th century AD. A delicate round-section hoop with piecrust bezel and inset natural octahedral diamond with natural graphite inclusions. Cf. Taylor, G. & Scarisbrick, D. Finger Rings from Ancient Egypt to the Present Day, Oxford, 1978, Profile Type 21, and Tillander, H. Diamond Cuts in Historic Jewellery: 1381-1910, London, 1995. This lot is accompanied by a copy of Richard Falkiner's 1972 article The Early History of the Diamond which deals with the setting of diamonds from a historical perspective. The first literary reference to diamonds occurs in the works of the Roman author Marcus Manilius (fl. 1st century AD) and his contemporary Pliny who describes a probable diamond as 'the most valuable of gems, known only to kings'. Supplied with a positive X-Ray Fluorescence analysis certificate. Diamonds naturally form octahedral crystals and medieval diamond 'cutting' consisted solely of polishing the natural pyramidal faces, as in this stone. The stone was introduced to the Roman world from India, and the Latin name adamas arrived in English from that source, giving rise to such medieval variants as 'adamant', 'diamaunt' and 'diamant'. The Latin term was itself derived from Greek for 'unconquerable', relating to the stone's hardness. This quality caused problems for the artificial shaping of the stone, and medieval jewellers were content to take octahedral diamond crystals and place them in purpose-made settings. Truncated forms of octahedron were created by skilful splitting, and in the 15th century the practice developed of cutting the stone with pulverised fragments and diamond dust. This skill was especially associated with the court of the Dukes of Burgundy; Gilbert of Metz mentions La Courarie, the diamond-cutters' quarter of Paris, in his description of that city in 1407. An appreciation of diamond's special refractive qualities led to the development of the customary 'rose cut' in the later 16th century. Cardinal Mazarin (1602-1661) is associated with the development of this style. The modern 'brilliant cut' was devised by the Venetian Vicenzo Peruzzi around 1700, and remains largely unchanged to this day. 1.20 grams, 22mm overall, 18.31mm internal diameter (approximate size British Q, USA 8, Europe 17.49, Japan 16) (3/4"). Property of a Suffolk lady; formerly in the Deago collection, by descent from the vendor's mother.

Condition Report: Very fine condition. Extremely rare.

Superb Hallstadt Bronze Situla

by ArtemisGallery LIVE

June 11, 2015, 8:00 AM PST

Erie , CO, USA

Estimated Price: $50,000 - $65,000

Description: Central Europe, Danube River Basin, ca. 1000 to 800 BCE. From the Hallstadt area of influence that spanned from Western Gaul to central Europe just North of Greece, composed of Gallic and Celtic tribes, existing contemporary to the Greek Geometric Period. A large situla, from the Latin for bucket or pail, a term for a variety of elaborate bucket-shaped vessels from the Iron Age to the Middle Ages. Composed by hammering flat three pieces of bronze and riveting them together. Two looped handles are attached on either side, gently flared rim, and flat base. Across center of vessel are subtly impressed geometric pattern, framed on the top and bottom by a row of large domed bumps, and another row of small domed bumps. There are two distinct layers of patina, one almost river like patina, which is very smooth with a mix of dark and light greens. The second patina is primarily located around the base and lower levels of the piece. This patina is a much more vibrant green and indicative of being under the ground for an extended amount of time. It is quite possible this piece was found in a river or other body of water, with the base buried in the mud or sediment and the top being exposed to the water. Size: 11-1/2"H x 14"W handle to handle.Cf. Christie's June 6, 2013, Lot 660, Est. $150,000 - $250,000. Provenance: Ex-private east coast USA collection.
