Description:
Hardcover. Fine. 4to. Bound in 20th-century 1/4-vellum over marbled boards. Strasbourg: Matthias Schürer, July 1510. Second Strasbourg edition of Erasmus heavily annotated collection of Greek and Latin proverbs. Printed in Roman and Greek types. This is the original version, containing 818 adages, which is considerably shorter than the later expanded versions published under the title Adagiorum chiliades. (Adams E-420; Bezzel, Erasmusdrucke, 50; Van der Haeghen, Bibliotheca Erasmiana, p.25-6; Bibl. Belgica II, 276: no. E.61; Muller, Strasbourg II, p. 179, no. 45.) The Adagia could only have been possible in the new world of European education, in which careful attention to a broader range of classical texts produced a much fuller picture of the literature of antiquity. Its impact has been long lasting. Such popular expressions such as one step at a time, between a rock and a hard place, break the ice, an iron in the fire, looking a gift horse in the mouth, and many other sayings can trace their… Read More

Description:
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… Read More

Description:
1571 Fabricius Virorum Illustrium Famous Lives ROME Josephus Tacitus Strabo

"Death comes to all, But great achievements raise a monument, Which shall endure until the sun grows old."
– Georg Fabricius

Georg Fabricius was an important 16th-century Protestant German author who is responsible for some of the best editions of Greek and Roman classics such as Terence, Virgil, and Horace. And while his commentary on classical literature is without a doubt his best work, he is also known for a study on the history of Christian religion. He published a number of sacred poems as well in which he sought to completely avoid all traces of paganism.

This 1571 printing of 'Virorum Illustrium' includes many of his sacred poems, but is desirable for his biographical sketches of notable church fathers, historians, and Roman rulers including:
·
Africanus
·
Appian
·
Florus
·
Josephus
·
Justin Martyr
·
Thucydides
·
Prudentius

1686 IRELAND 1ed James Ussher Life & Letters Archbishop Irish Bible Sermons

"What is it which all men especially desire? Eternal life and happiness?" ­
– James Ussher, Body of Divinity
James Ussher was an early 17th-century Archbishop in the Church of Ireland who is most remembered for giving an exact date to the beginning of creation. His full body of work includes letters, sermons, dissertations, and exegeticals, but this work focuses solely on improving the Christians life and strengthening their faith. A biographical sketch of Ussher's life was written by Richard Parr in 1686 in which he included hundreds of correspondence letters, including those from William Camden and Edward Stradling.
