‎- ALDUS MANUTIUS. GERET, SAMUEL LUTHER / UNGER.‎

Reference : 28000,00

‎De Aldi Pii Manutii Romani vita meritisque in rem literatam liber Ungeri Singularis. Auctus cura et studio Samuelis Lutheri Geret A.M. - [THE FIRST BIOGRAPHY OF ALDUS MANUTIUS]‎

‎Wittemberg, Vidua Scheffler, 1the first real attempt at an Aldine bibliography&quot (Grolier, Aldus). This legendary publication constitutes not only the earliest but also one of the most important sources on Aldus and his publications. Written by Christian Gottlieb Unger (1671-1719), presumably in the early 1700'ies, it circulated in manuscript-form for decades until 1753, when Samuel Luther Geret, German theologian, lawyer and politician, took upon himself to edit the manuscript and have it published. Renouard mentions a 1729-edition, but this is a ghost (See &quotGrolier, Aldus Manutius: No. 135&quot).Grolier, Aldus Manutius: No. 135.Renouard, pp. iv-v. ‎

A bit ofopera&quot in the history of Western thought, namely the first edition of the original Greek text of the collected works of Sextus Empiricus, a body of writing that came to determine the course of much modern thought, influencing the thought of Bruno, Montaigne, Descartes, and many other pivotal thinkers of the modern era. The present collection of writings constitutes one of the the single most important texts in the history of skepticism, determining the course of modern thought. &quotNo discovery of the Renaissance remains livelier in modern philosophy than scepticism&quot. (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 338). &quotThe revived skepticism of Sextus Empiricus was the strongest single agent of disbelief&quot. (ibid., p. 346). &quotAs the only Greek Pyrrhonian sceptic whose works survived, he came to have a dramatic role in the formation of modern thought. The historical accident of the rediscovery of his works at precisely the moment when the skeptical problem of the criterion had been raised gave the ideas of Sextus a sudden and greater prominence than they had ever before or were ever to have again. Thus, Sextus, a recently discovered oddity, metamorphosed into &quotle divin Sexte&quot, who, by the end of the seventeenth century, was regarded as the father of modern philosophy. Moreover, in the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the effect of his thoughts upon the problem of the criterion stimulated a quest for certainty that gave rise to the new rationalism of Renà Descartes and the &quotconstructive skepticism&quot of Pierre Gassendi and Martin Mersenne.&quot (Popkin, p. 18).&quotThe revival of ancient philosophy was particularly dramatic in the case of scepticism. This critical and anti-dogmatic way of thinking was quite important in Antiquity, but in the Middle Ages its influence faded [...] when the works of Sextus and Diogenes were recovered and read alongside texts as familiar as Cicero's &quotAcademia&quot, a new energy stirred in philosophy by Montaigne's time, scepticism was powerful enough to become a major force in the Renaissance heritage prepared for Descartes and his successors.&quot (Copenhaver & Schmitt, pp. 17-18). The work appeared in three variants, the present with Orleans-inprinted, printed by the Chouet brothers, one with Genevaimprint, also by the Chouet brothers, and a third printed in Paris by Picard. No precedence between the three has been established, but the Chouet-printing is the one that is usually referred to in secondary literature (e.g. popkin, kristeller, Copenhaver & Schmitt). See:Kristeller: &quotRenaissance Thought II. Papers on Humanism and the Arts&quot, 1965.Popkin: &quotThe History of Scepticism. From Savonarola to Bayle&quot, 2003.Lohr: &quotRenaissance Latin translations on the Greek commentaries on Aristotle&quot, in: &quotHumanism and Early Modern Philosophy&quot, Edt. by Kraye and Stone, 2000.Schmitt: &quotGianfrancesco Pico della Mirandola (1469-1533) and his critique of Aristotle&quot, 1967.Copenhaver & Schmitt: &quotRenaissance Philosophy&quot, 1992. This splendid copy of the philosophy of Sextus Empiricus belonged to the noted Danish bibliophile Niels Foss (1670-1751) and bears his gilt coat-of-arms and crowned monogram on the spine. Niels Foss owned one of the most splendid Danish libraries of the 18th century. He was very particular about his bindings, and in his time it was said that almost all of his books which were in &quotEnglish bindings&quot (&quotligatura Anglica compacti&quot, which is what we now call &quotCambridge-style bindings&quot. The bindings he owned &quotwere exceptionally well made and many of them still look as fresh as the day that they came from the binder&quot (Elberling, &quotBreve fra en Bogelsker&quot, 1909). The great Danish jurist, author, and political thinker Ludvig Holberg frequented the library, which was particularly rich in philology and philosophy. The copy later entered the Bibliotheca Communitatis Regiae in Copenhagen (est. 1777 partly sold 1853) and bears the letters from the &quotRegensen&quot library, B.C.R., in gold on the front board.‎
