         Commentariorum juris civilis libri X. Tomus prior [-posterior] ... Accesserunt tres amplissimi indices

      ex officina typographica Antonii Tivano. Veneunt apud Franciscum Antonium Perazzo, 1724. Due volumi di cm. 37,5, pp. (36) 374; (18) 400. Frontespizi in rosso e nero. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli in oro al dorso; tagli spruzzati. Fioriture e bruniture naturali, tipiche della carta napoletana del tempo, trascurabili mancanze al margine inferiore bianco delle ultime 3 carte del primo volume, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. Francois Connan (1508-1551), studiò con Alciato a Bourges e partecipò all'affermazione del cosiddetto Mos gallicus. Quest'importante commentario di diritto romano ben definisce gli orientamenti dottrinali dell'umanesimo giuridico, rimarcando una netta distanza da Bartolo e dalla scuola dei commentatori tardo-medievali. Connan fu il primo giureconsulto a cercare una razionalizzazione e una sistemazione razionale dell'universo del diritto civile secondo le nuove istanze umanistiche. I commentari, stampati per la prima volta postumi nel 1553 furono implementati e completati proprio nel 1557 da Francois Hotman. Cfr. Iccu; Sapori, 708..

Edition originale. "Bien qu'anonyme, cet ouvrage est reconnu pour être de F. Colonna (.). Un des intérêts majeurs de ce livre est de comporter une clef capitale pour déchiffrer les 'Archidoxes' de Paracelse. Avant sa mort, il donna ce dixième livre qu'il voulait supprimer et qui est en quelque manière la clef de ses autres livres. Inspiré par le Grand Art, Colonna nous délivre ici un témoignage majeur autant par la richesse de son contenu que par la rigueur de ses textes" (Ed. Massanne, 2003).

        Asia secundum legitimas Projectionis Steriographicae regulas et juxta recentissimas observationes et relationes.

      Artist: Homann Erben ( - 1780) Nuremberg; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca 1744 1724 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Upper left corner replaced; - size (in cm): 48 x 51,5; - description: Map shows total Asia and partly Europe; -vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.
