About This Item

ANTUERPIAE: APUD IOANNEM BELLERUM SUB AQUILA AUREA. In 24. Dim. 13x8 cm. Pp. (36)+370+(24).Rarissima edizione senza data ma del 1580 della nota leggenda "Barlaam Iosaphat". Il racconto, attribuito a San Giovanni Damasceno (676-749) e popolarissimo in età medievale narra la conversione di Iosafat per merito del Santo eremita Barlaam. Sembra che la storia venne in realtà ricalcata sul modello della vicenda della conversione del Buddha. San Giovanni Damasceno venne dichiarato dottore della chiesa nel 1890. Opera redatta a cura di Georges Trapezuntius. Alla fine del volume la breve opera "De comparatione regis et monachi" di Giovanni Cristostomo a cura di Germain Brice. Antica firma al frontespizio e sottolineature all'interno. Bella legatura in piena pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Rarissimo, solo sette copie censite su ICCU. Collazionato e risultato completo. Copertina in piena pergamena molle seicentesca con titolo manoscritto al dorso in buone condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso. Dorso coperto da pergamena. Lacci di chiusura mancanti. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con rare fioriture. Segni di tarlo al margine destro: a pag. (20), 43, 67, 113, 305, 329, 353 senza perdita di testo. A pag. 19, 91, 161 con perdita di qualche porzione di lettera. Gore d'acqua al margine inferiore delle prime 4 carte. Very scarce not dated edition but of around 1580 of the famous legend "Barlaam Iosaphat". The tale, attribuited to Saint John of Damascus (676-749) and very popular in Middle Age talks about the conversion of Iosafat for the merit of the Heremit Barlaam. It seems that the history was in reality compared on the model of the happening of conversion of Buddha. Saint John of Damascus was declaired doctor of church in 1890. Work redacted by Georges Trapezuntius At the end of the volume the brief work "De comparatione regis et monachi" by Giovanni Cristostomo by Germain Brice.
