  • [MEDICINE] ARGENTERIO, De consultationibus, 1551
    Lotto 3


    ARGENTERIO, GIOVANNI. Ioannis Argenterii Castellonouensis ... De consultationibus medicis siue (vt vulgus vocat) de collegiandi ratione liber. Florentiae : cudebat Laurentius Torrentinus ducalis typographus, 1551.
    8vo (170 x 110) XVIII century half calf binding, pp. 190, [2, errata, last page blank], signature a-m⁸, Medici coat of arms at title page.


    Rare First Edition of Argenterio’s treatise on consultation or collegiality in medicine, where Argenterio dismissed the study of the elements “secundum naturam”, as theorized by Galen.

    The book was printed by Lorenzo Torrentino, printer that held the ducal monopoly of printing in Florence for several years, publishing only works approved by ducal authority; printing major literary, scientifical and historical works he represented an important instrument for cultural diffusion across Italy.

    While discussing the importance of consultation between colleagues, debating about real cases, Argenterio attacks Galen theories: he argues that, when doing a consultation, the physician does not need to explain the natural temperament of the patient, as Galen prescribed, since often elements that are “praeter naturam” can be easily found out without recurring to those “secundum naturam”.

    GIOVANNI ARGENTERIO (Castelnuovo d'Asti, 1513 – Turin, 1572) was an Italian physician and author of countless works on medicine.
    He was a professor at the Medical Universities of Pisa, Naples, Turin and Mondovì. He became famous for his medical work "De Morbis", published in 1548, De consultationibus medicis, in 1551 and In artem medicinalem Galeni commentarii tres in1553.

    ALESSANDRO MASSARIA first ordinary professor of practical medicine at the University of Padua during an oration at university mentioned and detailed the three main contemporary schools of thought in medicine:
    •the adherents of the Greeks, and especially of Galen, among whom Massaria counted himself.
    •the adherents of the Arabs, especially Avicenna.
    •a third group, those who "are drawn to none of the ancients but in a remarkable way to some more recent doctrine.", and as main representant of this third group of innovators he quoted GIOVANNI AGENTERIO, probably the strongest contemporary critic of Galen.

    After his death, Argenterio's ideas continued to play a part in late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century endeavours to enlarge or replace Galenic explanations of disease.

    The most important criticism raised by Argenterio, is addressed to the physiology of the three spirits (natural, vital and animal) and to their hierarchical localization in the liver, heart and brain.
    The weakness not only of the Galenic theory, but also of valid empirical confirmations, pushed the Piedmontese doctor to prefer a conception more directly inspired by Aristotle, whose biological works were increasingly spreading from the beginning of the sixteenth century. He then replaced the three Galenic spirits with a single vital spirit constituted by the “innate heat” residing in the blood.

    He then criticized the physiology of the four elementary qualities (hot, cold, dry and humid), qualities that traditionally explained the multiple empirical properties of the organism by their various combinations.

    According to Argenterio, the four humors (blood, white bile, black bile, phlegm), still played an important role, with the prevalence of blood, responsible of the spreading of the spirit or vital heat throughout the organism.

    Furthermore, blood is no longer produced by the liver but directly by the veins and the vital spirit flowing through them, directs and conditions the various body functions and moods.

    Another significant difference from Galen’s theory is related to the action of medicines, no longer considered as carriers of elementary qualities mixing with the organism, but as principles not related to the organism itself, that will react with it on a principle of antipathy or sympathy.

    CONDITIONS: light waterstain at the top margin of few internal leaves; in general a very good copy of a rare treatise.

  • [Novel] Boccaccio, Corbaccio, 1569
    Lotto 5

    Rare Parisian Edition

    Boccaccio, Giovanni. Il Corbaccio. In Parigi : per Federigo Morello, 1569.

    8°, limp vellum, pp. [16], 122, [6], 127-173, [1], The name of the author is taken from the incipit at f. A1r.
    Contains the notes taken by Jacopo Corbinelli from the 1384 apograph manuscript by Francesco D'Amaretto Mannelli, on which Corbinelli himself conducted the edition, cfr its dedication to Vincenzo Magalotti.

    Corbaccio is the most famous of the works composed by Giovanni Boccaccio after the publication of his masterpiece, the Decameron, probably dating back to 1365, after Boccaccio chose to live in retreat in Certaldo. Corbaccio is written in vulgar prose, and the most evident innovation of the work emerges in the presentation of love and the female figure

    Corbaccio, disappointed by the rejection of a widow he was in love with, falls asleep and finds himself among the souls of those who in life have succumbed to the illusion of love, which are presented in the form of fairs. Corbaccio's "guide", not very Virgilian, is the soul of the widow's husband who, in exchange for the promise of the celebration of masses in his honor and the transcription of what he will reveal to him, tells Corbaccio all the defects, moral and physical, of the woman.

    The sanctuary of Santa Maria dell'Impruneta is located in the municipality of Impruneta in the province of Florence.

    The Madonna dell'Impruneta, although not remembered for particular miracles, is at the center of a heartfelt and very devoted popular cult, so much so as to make the church one of the most important , and probably the oldest in Tuscany, among the Marian Sanctuaries of Italy.

    A document issued motu proprio has its legal effect even if the reasons given for its issuance are found to be false or fraudulent, a fact which would normally render the document invalid. Its validity is based on its issuance by the pope by his own initiative, not upon the reasons alleged.

    In the present case the Pope issued new rules for the Papal University of Ferrara.

    Lotto 24


    Pouget, Francois Aime. Institutiones catholicae in modum catecheseos, in quibus quidquid ad religionis historiam & ecclesiae, dogmata, mores, sacramenta ... totum id brevi compendio ex sacris fontibus Scripturae & traditionis explanatur. Ex gallico idiomate in latinum sermonem translate; ... Auctore oedem et interprete Francisco-Amato Pouget ... Tomus primus -secundus. Venice, Balleoni, 1782.

    2 thick folio volumes, hald calf, red edges, pp. XX, 716 and pp. IV, 680. Red and black title-page.

    Fine Venetian edition of renowned Pouget's Cathechism, a perfect syntesis between Christian though and simplicity.

    Francois Aime Pouget (born 1666) was a French theologian, from Montpellier. Almost immediately after his ordination he was appointed vicar of Saint-Roche at Paris, and it was in this capacity that he administered the last sacraments to La Fontaine. He was made doctor, and entered in 1696 the Congregation of the Oratory. Colbert, bishop of Montpellier, gave him the direction of his seminary. He returned to Paris, and held at the Seminary of Saint Magloire public lectures on the conscience. He was appointed member of the commission charged with the liturgical reform of the diocese of Paris. The Catechisme de Montpellier, the principal work of Pouget, was published at Paris in 1702; it was at once adopted in all parts of France, has gone through many editions, and has been translated into several languages. At the time of his death Pouget was publishing a Latin edition of it, in which the passages merely indicated in the French work were extensively filled out. This edition, when in the printing office, was seized at the request of cardinal de Bissy, and was published after examination by doctor Clavel, with his comments. The work was completed by the P. Desmolets, and published under the title of Institutiones Catholicae(1725).

    There are few works of this kind in which the Christian dogmas, the religious morals, the sacraments, prayers, ceremonies, and customs of the Church are set forth with greater distinctness and simplicity.
