On the art of building in ten books by Leon Battista Alberti( Book )

10 editions published in 1485 in Latin and English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De Re Aedificatoria, by Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472), was the first moderntreatise on the theory and practice of architecture. Its importance for the subsequent history ofarchitecture is incalculable, yet this is the first English translation based on the original, exceptionally eloquent Latin text on which Alberti's reputation as a theorist is founded. Joseph Rykwert and his colleagues have been scrupulous in following Alberti's original intentions. Their version is based on the critical text published in 1966 by Giovanni Orlandi. It replaces the only other significant English version, by the Venetian architect James Leoni, whose source was not the original Latin but an Italian translation dating from the sixteenth century. Rykwert's substantial introduction discusses Alberti's life and career - as papal functionary, writer on a wide variety of topics, and architect and discusses the De Re Aedificatoria itself - its relation to the De Architectura of Vitruvius, its influence on contemporary and later architectural theory and practice, and its bibliographic history. The apparatus also includes an index and a glossary of terms. The translators were fortunate to have the help of eminent Alberti scholar Hans-Karl Lücke of the University of Toronto. Alberti set out to replace Vitruvius's authority, which had been undisputed for over a thousand years. In a Latin which was both more elegant and more precise than that of his ancient predecessor, he succeeded in framing a coherent account of the fragmented knowledge of antique architecture as it had survived through the dark and middle ages. His was the one book which established architecture as an intellectual and professional discipline rather than a craft and gave it a proper theoretical context; by showing how the great examples of ruined antiquity could be emulated in practice, it provided a theoretical basis for the architecture of the Renaissance. Alberti organizes the work of the architect according to solidity, use, and grace. The ten books begin with a book of definitions; there follow two books devoted to materials and constructional methods; books four and five discuss the uses of the parts of the building and the different building types. The bulk of the second part, books six through nine deal with grace: the problems of designing sacred buildings, the problems of beauty and ornament, of proportions. Book ten takes up problems of restoration, water supply, and minor adjuncts to building. -- Publisher's website
S. Gregorii Magni Moralia in Job by Gregory( Book )

5 editions published in 1486 in Italian and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Présente les commentaires de Grégoire sur le Livre de Job 38, 1-33 : Dieu y répond aux plaintes du juste malheureux. Les phénomènes naturels sont interprétés tantôt comme des faits d'Eglise et des épisodes de l'histoire sainte, tantôt comme des vicissitudes de l'âme cherchant Dieu. Grégoire passe ainsi sans cesse de l'Ancien Testament au Nouveau et centre son commentaire sur le Christ
De medicina by Aulus Cornelius Celsus( Book )

2 editions published in 1478 in Latin and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A. CORNELIUS CELSUS was author probably during the reign of the Roman Emperor Tiberius (A.D. 14-37) of a general encyclopaedia of agriculture, medicine, military art, rhetoric, philosophy, and jurisprudence, in that order of subjects. Of all this great work there survives only the 8 books on medicine (De Medicina) which followed on the lost 5 books on agriculture. Book I: after an excellent survey of Greek Schools (Dogmatic, Methodic, Empiric) or medicine come sensible dietetics or health preservation which will always be applicable. Book II: deals with prognosis, diagnosis of symptoms (which he stresses strongly), and general therapeutics. Book III: internal ailments - fevers and general diseases (much of the book is good). Book IV: local bodily diseases (from Head to foot; not so good). Next come two pharmacological books, Book V: treatment by drugs of general diseases; Book VI: of local diseases. Shortcomings in these books are caused by ignorance of modern anatomy and pathology. Book VII and Book VIII: deal with surgery. These books, parts of which have been much debated (for example the operation for stone), and parts much praised, contain accounts of many operations, including amputation
