Item Description: Jacobus Saçon for Ciriacus Hochperg,, Lyon:, 1517. 30.8 x 21.5 cm. Folio: Collation: Pt. I: 216 lvs. Collation:*10, a-z8, aa-bb8, cc6 (cc6 blank). Pt. II: 342 lvs. Collation: ??8, A-Z8, AA-QQ8, RR-SS6, TT10 The Lyon VergilIllustrated with 208 Woodcuts from the Grüninger Vergil These blocks were cut for Grüninger?s 1502 edition of Vergil, the first illustrated Vergil. The book, edited by Sebastian Brant, was extraordinary in the number and variety of its illustrations. ?Grüninger?s artist applied to the work a skilled hand and a lively imagination? The blocks must have passed to Saçon at Lyon shortly after the printing of the Strasbourg 1515 edition of Thomas Murner?s German translation of the ?Aeneid,? described in Murray?s catalogue of German books, vol. 2, no. 426? The block of Vergil and Calliope is from the title page of the 1502 edition.?(Mortimer) "The subtle detail of Sébastien Brant's woodcuts would certainly escape the spectator who could not read the text and seem, rather, calculated to appeal to one whose familiarity with the poems would allow him to appreciate precise visual allusions. In several cases, Brant's work incorporates details drawn from the commentators' interpretations. As a humanistic scholar, he is said to have placed the stamp of his own thorough knowledge of Vergil upon the book by providing master sketches for the illustrators."(Eleanor Winsor Leach) Brunet V 1282; Baudrier vol 12, pp. 344-346; Renouard, Badius Ascensius, vol. 3 p. 370-372, no. 11. Cf. Eleanor Winsor Leach, "Brant's and Dryden's Editions of Vergil" in "The Early Illustrated Book", pp. 176 ff.) and Rabb, Theodore K. "Sebastien Brant and the First Illustrated Edition of Vergil." in "Princeton University Library Chronicle 21", 1960: 187-99. A fine, complete copy, bound in 18th century calfskin. There are discreet repairs to the fore-edge and foot of the title, affecting two letters on the verso. Leaf CC1 has a tear in the gutter without loss. VERY RARE. This is the first complete copy that I have handled in 15 years of specializing in early editions of Vergil. The only other copy that I have handled lacked the full-page image of Vergil and his muse. FIRST LYON BADIUS EDITION. The third edition with these woodcuts and the last edition to include them all. Two parts in one volume with titles printed in red and black within fine architectural woodcut borders. Illustrated with 207 large woodcut illustrations (64 in the first part and 143 in the second part.) A full-page woodcut of Vergil with the muse Calliope appears on the recto of ?1.

"Sebastien Brant and the First Illustrated Edition of Vergil." in "Princeton University Library Chronicle 21", 1960: 187-99. Bound in near- contemporary quarter-sawn wooden boards with clasps and catches, the leather and clasps renewed in the 19th century (the catchplates are original.) This is probably the book?s second binding. Internally, this copy is in fine condition with a few instances of contemporary annotations in the first part. Aside from occasional light soiling, a fine copy of this beautiful production. The text is illustrated with 199 of the 208 woodcuts originally produced for Sébastien Brant and Jean Grüninger's edition of 1502. These blocks were used a second time, by Jacob Saçon for his Paris edition of 1517. The present edition is the last 16th century edition to contain a substantial number of these images.

The binding is in excellent condition with only light wear, the corners lightly bumped. Internally, the text is in very good condition, with occasional light foxing and toning. There is a small dampstain in the gutter in the first two signatures of the Aeneid. The engraved frontispiece, with a central scene showing Arion and the dolphin (an allusion to the Dauphin) and a medallion portrait of Vergil, is just a trifle foxed. Engraved vignettes introduce the Bucolics, Georgics & Aeneid. SECOND EDITION of the Delphin Vergil; this issue was printed ?Ex Typographia David Roger 1689.?. Bookseller Inventory # 2463D

Item Description: ex officina [Bonaventure & Abraham] Elzeviriana,, [Leiden]:, 1636. 11.9 x 7.1 cm. Duodecimo: *4, **4, ***12, A-T12 (with a folding map bound before leaf A1) The First Elzevir Vergil This edition of Vergil, edited by Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655), Dutch linguist and scholar and the pupil and friend of Scaliger, is considered, along with the Caesar and Pliny of 1635, one of the three masterpieces of the Leiden Elzevir press. "Vergil?s Nachleben is Western Literature. Anecdotal evidence suggests that already during his lifetime he was regarded not only by professional colleagues but also by many lay readers as Rome?s greatest living poet [.] For the Romans, with a speed and completeness that has few parallels in world literature, Vergil had already become a classic. His works are quoted so often in antiquity that even if they had been lost, they could still be reconstructed in large measure. During his own lifetime, fellow poets such as Horace and Propertius admired him, from a distance, and parodies of his works flourished, but apparently no poet earlier than Ovid dared to try to rival him?"Vergil continued to be read in Latin for centuries. Shakespeare probably knew at least the earlier books of the Aeneid in Latin, while Milton?s Paradise Lost attempts to provide an English equivalent not only for Vergil?s epic themes but also even for his syntax, diction, and as far as possible, meter. But in Britain he was also particularly well served by translations. In the sixteenth century the epic was translated into Scottish verse by Gavin Douglas, and into English by Henry Howard (Books One and Four); in the seventeenth-century the epic was translated by Dryden" (Conte, Latin Literature, A History) Copinger 4946; Willems 450; Berghman 2168; Rahir 442; Schweiger 1169; Brunet V, 1289. Bound in contemporary black morocco with light wear to the joints. The boards are ruled in gold; the spine is ornately tooled in gold and adorned with a citron morocco label, also gilt. The text is in fine condition; there is a small tear, without loss, at one of the folds of the map. Complete with the engraved title page featuring the ?Swan of Mantua? A folding map of the Mediterranean, illustrating the places visited by Aeneas on his journey from Troy to Italy, is bound after p.92. FIRST ELZEVIR EDITION, distinguished from the other 1636 editions by passages printed in red on leaves ***12v and D10v. Bookseller Inventory # 2481D

A good set, in handsome contemporary bindings (labeled "Martyn's Virgil. Vol. I [and] Vol II"). Second and third editions of Martin's heavily annotated translations, printed parallel with the Latin texts. Martyn (1699 - 1768) was a botanist of considerable accomplishment, with a substantial number of original and translated publications to his credit. "About 1737 Martyn received from Linnæus a copy of his ‘Flora Lapponica,’ published in that year, and thus began a correspondence between them. Reference is made to this work by Martyn in the first volume of the last great literary undertaking of his life, an edition, with translation and natural history notes, of the works of Virgil. Of this he published the ‘Georgicks’ in 1741, the astronomical matters being revised by his friend Edmund Halley, and the ‘Bucolicks’ in 1749; but only left some dissertations and notes on the ‘Æneid,’ which were issued posthumously" - DNB. The earlier and quarto editions often appear with a larger complement of plates, and with the plates colored. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 53039
