Flora : the Aztec herbal by Martin Clayton( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume catalogues Cassiano dal Pozzo's copy of the Codex Cruz-Badianus, an Aztec herbal prepared for the son of the Viceroy of Mexico in 1552 and the earliest medical text to have survived from the New World. The original codex was presented to Cassiano's patron, Cardinal Francesco Barberini, during a papal legation to Spain in 1626, and was copied on the Cardinal's return to Rome for Cassiano's fellow members of the Accademia dei Lincei, who at that time were completing their own vast illustrated natural history of Central America." "Cassiano's copy of the Codex Cruz-Badianus is preserved in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle together with the larger surviving part of his 'Paper Museum', an encyclopaedic collection of prints and drawings of antiquities, architecture and natural history subjects, acquired by George III in 1762." "Each folio of the Windsor manuscript is reproduced here in colour together with full comparative illustrations of the Codex Cruz-Badianus. The Latin text is transcribed with a parallel English translation, and each of the 184 drawings of plants is analysed. The catalogue is preceded by general introductions to the Paper Museum and to the natural history drawings, and by two thematic essays: Luigi Guerrini discusses the Windsor copy in the context of the Lincei's researches into the natural history of the New World; and Alejandro de Avila reviews the current state of research into the original Codex Cruz-Badianus, including the fieldwork and linguistic researches in Mexico that are changing our understanding of the manuscript." "This book has 264 pages, 194 illustrations, including 184 in colour."--Jacket
Flora : Federico Cesi's botanical manuscripts by Federico Cesi( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This three-volume catalogue presents five manuscripts containing some 780 mainly botanical drawings, now in the library of the Institut de France. They were produced for Federico Cesi in the 1620s to further the researches of the scientific society he had founded in Rome, the Accademia dei Lincei, of which Cassiano dal Pozzo was a member. The manuscripts were acquired by Cassiano in 1633 following Cesi's death, together with three companion manuscripts dedicated to drawings of fungi (published in Part B.II of the catalogue raisonné). Many of the drawings depict plants such as ferns, bryophytes, mosses and liverworts, which had been considered 'imperfect' because (like fungi) they seemed to lack reproductive structures - flowers, fruit or seeds. In 1624 Galileo gave his fellow academicians a microscope, and with this novel 'aid to the eyes', wrote another Linceo, 'our Prince Cesi saw to it that many plants hitherto believed by botanists to be lacking in seeds were drawn on paper'. Indeed, these drawings constitute some of the earliest microscopic studies in the history of science. One manuscript is dedicated to illustrations of seaweeds and is the first known sustained study of this subject, while another is a miscellaneous volume that includes 30 prints as well as drawings of fungi and lichen, insects, a bat, a hermaphrodite rat and other curiosities. Introductory essays discuss the importance of these drawings to Cesi's researches and how the manuscripts made their way into the collections of the Institut de France, their botanical content and place in the history of botanical illustration. All drawings are reproduced as full-plate colour illustrations and accompanied by botanical identifications and commentary."--Front inside flap of dust jacket

Un pellegrinaggio secolare : due studi su Enea Silvio Piccolomini by Luigi Guerrini( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in Italian and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il volume ripercorre alcuni dei momenti salienti della biografia di Enea Silvio Piccolomini (1405-1464), incrociando i contenuti delle opere e quelli del poco conosciuto, ma ricchissimo, epistolario. Grazie alla ricostruzione delle tappe del lungo pellegrinaggio laico dell'umanista attraverso le corti e le città dell'Europa del primo Quattrocento, esso ricostruisce la genesi dei principali interessi di questo autore. La cultura del futuro Pio II è fortemente nutrita di conoscenze e di curiosità storiche, geografiche, naturalistiche e politico-religiose. Negli anni trenta e quaranta del XV secolo, il giovane Piccolomini percorre l'Europa occidentale e il Sacro Romano Impero, venendo a contatto con culture, figure, ambienti urbani e naturali che segneranno per sempre il suo modo di interpretare le lettere e la vita. Proprio in quegli anni prende corpo nella mente di Piccolomini il vasto programma culturale che porterà alla stesura dei suoi grandi trattati storici e geografici degli anni cinquanta, sui quali l'umanista continuerà a lavorare anche dopo l'elezione al pontificato (1458). Il libro riporta a galla gli aspetti oggi quasi dimenticati, o comunque più trascurati, della vastissima opera di Piccolomini, cercando di rendere ragione delle molteplici e anche contrastanti sfaccettature della cultura e della visione dell'uomo di questo autore

Cosmologie in lotta : le origini del processo di Galileo by Luigi Guerrini( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in Italian and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'opera ricostruisce la storia del conflitto tra Chiesa cattolica e sostenitori della teoria astronomica copernicana nel periodo che va dalla stampa del "De revolutionibus orbium caelestium" di Niccolò Copernico (1543) al primo processo di Galileo (1616). Fin dai tempi del papato di Paolo III (1534-1549) il copernicanesimo è considerato eretico per la Chiesa di Roma a causa della sua netta incompatibilità con la cosmologia sacra del Genesi. La prima opera anticopernicana di ambito cattolico viene scritta nel 1547 dal domenicano Giovanni Maria Tolosani e i motivi cosmologici e teologici che la caratterizzano continuano a ispirare la lotta contro l'eliocentrismo fino ai tempi del primo processo di Galileo. Nella prima parte del libro vengono analizzate le idee di Tolosani e la loro influenza sui successivi dibattiti cosmologici e teologici fra '500 e '600. Nella seconda parte sono presi in considerazione gli snodi dottrinali del processo contro Galileo del 1615-1616. L'appendice contiene la prima traduzione italiana dell'opuscolo anticopernicano "De caelo supremo immobili et terra infima stabili."

Nuovi saperi e antichi primati : studi sulla cultura del primo Seicento by Luigi Guerrini( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in Italian and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I primi decenni del Seicento costituiscono un difficile e problematico periodo della storia della cultura europea. Filosofia e scienza si rinnovano profondamente grazie alle opere di autori come Galileo Galilei, Pierre Gassendi, Renè Descartes, Francis Bacon, William Gilbert, Tommaso Campanella, Federico Cesi. I contenuti delle loro teorie mettono in crisi l'Aristotelismo e la Scolastica e il primato delle antiche istituzioni e dei secolari poteri che su di essi avevano fondato la loro legittimità. Il conflitto tra nuovi saperi e antichi primati diviene uno dei tratti più caratteristici della vita culturale del tempo. Il libro ricostruisce alcuni dei più significativi momenti di questa lotta, attingendo sempre a fonti originali e portando alla luce documenti inediti e sconosciuti
