PRINTED IN VENICE; PUBLISHED IN VIENNA. Probably the second edition. 4to., [144] including the blank b4. Mid-sixteenth century German or Viennese binding of blind rolled calf over bevelled wooden boards with a flower and knot tooled pattern to the front board (rebacked in the late nineteenth century and corners restored more recently); nineteenth century endpapers; lacking clasps (front board lightly wormed). Some very light waterstaining to the lower blank margin throughout; small wormtrack to the lower blank margin of the first two gatherings; small single wormhole to the blank lower right corner throughout, otherwise a very good copy. First printed in Haguenau in 1499 (Goff S-869; locating Burndy Library (now Smithsonian), Huntington Library, Newberry, and Yale University) with the text of Aristotle translated from the Arabic, this commentary on the VIII books of Aristotle's physics is the only known work of Fridericus Sunczel, the 'magister' at the gymnasium in Ingolstadt. Sunczel writes in the preface that he has undertaken this work to counter the circulation of all of the bad commentaries that have obscured the meaning of Aristotle. Sunczel seeks to make Aristotle more intelligible through a process of clarification by 'bringing together those things which are scattered and necessary into one body and to cut away the superfluous'. In this edition, unlike the first, the text of Aristotle is translated by John Argyropulos of Constantinople (c.1415-1487) influential Byzantine humanist who along with Manuel Chrysoloras, George of Trebizond and George Gemistius had the largest share in making known to Western Europe the treasures of ancient Greek literature. Until the late fifteenth century, Aristotle was known only through translations from the Arabic, but with the rediscovery of many early Greek manuscripts, scholars could now consult Aristotle in the original Greek or in translations that were one step closer to the original. The original Greek text of Aristotle was first published between 1495-98 by Aldus Manutius. Argyropulos studied at Padua before lecturing, at the urging of Emperor Constantine XI, at the university in Constantinople (1448-1453) where he commented on Aristotle's Physica and Logica. After the fall of Constantinople he travelled to Greece, Italy and France before settling in Florence to teach Greek language and philosophy with the support of Cosimo and Pietry Medici, and later, by the invitation of Pope Sixtus IV, at Rome. He was a renowned teacher and friend of Latin and Greek humanists (his students included Platina, Michael Apostolios, Donato Acciaiuoli, Cristoforo Landino, and Angelo Poliziano). He was one of the major promoters of the formation of philosophical thought in the Florentine Renaissance, from which the mature thought of Marsilio Ficino grew. He is especially known as a translator of Aristotle's writings -- Aldus Manutius printed his translation in 1518-20 -- but his commentaries appeared much later: Ethics and Politics were published in 1541. This edition is also of interest on account of the light it sheds on the international aspect of the early booktrade. The colophon indicates that this work was printed in Venice by Petrus Liechtenstein of Cologne at the cost of Leonardus Alantse a bookseller in Vienna whose device appears on the colophon. This edition is very rare. We could not locate any copies in America and only the National Library of Sweeden, British Library, Universitat Heidelberg Institut fur Geschichte der Medizin, Augsburg (SuStB), and Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Munchen world-wide. Provenance: Book label of the noted nineteenth century collector George Dunn on the front pastedown. N° de ref. de la librería 2008
