1551 1ed ALDINE Aristotle Meteorology Weather Comets + Byzantine Olympiodorus "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." 鈥 Aristotle 'Meteorology' is one of Aristotle's most famous and important treatises. While the majority of his works stem from philosophy, this one is strictly from a scientific viewpoint 鈥 a view in which Aristotle sought to collect and describe all of the major weather patterns and properties including water evaporation, earthquakes, tornadoes, lightning and thunder, and wind and fire. This work is thought to be one of the earliest on hydrology as well as an early work on the earth being a sphere! In the 5th-century, Byzantine astrologer Olympiodorus the Younger wrote a commentary on Aristotle's 'Meteorology'. In his commentary and notes, he mentions a comet that he observed in the year 565. This commentary is notable because it is the only ancient commentary on meteorology that has survived in its entirety. It is curious though, th ... Read more

1853 Life of Blessed Virgin Mary Orsini English Catholic Ireland IllustratedA beautiful, rare English edition of Orsini's 'Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary.' This fine work of Catholic literature was translated out of the original French into English and is "a labor of love for a Catholic to celebrate the praises and publish the renown of our most dear Mother." Called a 'Superb Work' by the Lambruschini 'Treatise on the Immaculate Conception', this work was written to honor the Virgin Mary and hold her in the highest regard. Translated by Mrs. J Sadlier, this work "follows the course of the universal devotion wherewith the Church has honored, and does still honor, this Queen of angels and of men. It shows how from age to age that devotion has grown and prospected coequal with Catholicity and records the shrines and churches erected in every land under her invocation. It embodies the Eastern traditions concerning her with the conclusive testimony of the Fathers; the little which is related of her in Scripture b ... Read more
