Stoker was inspired by the folklore of his native Ireland and by the Gothic novels of his countryman Sheridan Le Fanu. As DNB observes, the "complex and highly symbolic" plot here "illustrated [the author's] fears about a world approaching a new century, about the unspeakable things which could happen to ordinary people, and about male insecurity and the dangers of subservience to another person. This is not an especially rare book, but it is not common to find a well-preserved copy, and our appealing morocco binding provides a welcome alternative to the publisher's yellow cloth, which invariably shows up very soiled.

With four full-page chiromantic hands and several zodiacal and planetary illustrations in the text. Some light browning, but a very good copy. All the most famous subsequent authors on the subjects are somehow indebted to Tiberti cf.
Sabbatini, Bio-bibliografia chiromantica, Reggio Emilia, , pp. The original dedication by Tiberti to Ottavio Ubaldino, earl of Mercatello, is followed by a new dedication addressed by the editor Johannes Dryander to the Mainz nobleman Johann Furderer de Richtenfels. The text of the two Mainz editions differs significantly from that of the first Bologna edition, a thing that can only be explained by the fact that Dryander had not access to the first edition or to the manuscript used as a basis for the first edition; he probably had at hand only a defective manuscript and on several occasions he had to intervene to complete the incomplete text.
Tiberti defends palmistry and tries to prove it as a science. In the arrangement of the seven planets on the lines of the palm, he significantly deviates from his predecessors, creating a new system that had a long-lasting influence on his successors. The work was later put in the Index. Antioco Tiberti was born into a noble Cesena family. After completing his studies in France, he came back to Italy, published his treatise on palmistry, which made him famous, and had the temerity to go to Rome at the invitation of Pope Alexander VI to defend his case.
He did it so well that he was exiled, but not convicted. In he went to Rimini, where he was arrested by order of Pandolfo Malatesta. While he was in prison, the latter visited him to learn about his future. Tiberti predicted him that he would lose his lordship and would die in exile and in extreme poverty. Later, during an attempt to escape, Tiberti was captured and beheaded his corpse remained unburied for almost a year.
Shortly after Malatesta was ousted by Cesare Borgia and died in exile and extreme poverty as predicted. The only source about Tiberi's life is an eighteenth-century manuscript Diatribae caesenates written by a certain G. Braschi and now preserved at the Malatestiana Library of Cesena.

Louvain, Pieter Martens van Alst, March, Title within an ornamental woodcut border including the printer's device. Title printed in red and black and a full-page woodcut at the end showing the author with his patron and his wife kneeling in prayer. The two works are bound together in a blind-stamped calf binding made by the Flemish Jacob Clercx de Geel from Antwerp active from about to He was succeeded by his son Gheert who was married with Abraham Ortelius' sister Anna.
Gheert used the same panel with the first name of his father erased. In the same period, Jan Tys from Mechelen used a panel with the same design and the same text border but with his own name cf. Evidence and Principles, New York, , pp. On each cover there are two impressions of a panel divided into two rectangles each occupied by three animals above: dragon, rabbit, dog; below: cattle, eagle, deer enclosed within the curves of a vine branch.
Between these two panels is another panel figuring dancing peasants and a piper cf. This seems to be the only surviving specimen of the two panels in combination with the frieze of dancers signed by Jacob Clerx see also L. Indestege, Boekbanden iut vijf eeuven. Catalogus van de tentoonstelling, Gent, , no. Paris, , p. The work has an immediate success and only five months later a second edition appeared with thirteen new dialogues. It was mostly used in Northern European schools and was reprinted many times at Antwerp, Cologne, Paris and Lyon until the middle of the century cf. Daxhelet, Adrien Barlandus, humaniste belge, In the dedicatory letter to his pupil Charles de Croy , later bishop of Turnai , he pays reverent tribute to Erasmus and Mosellanus as his literary models.
The possibility of the dialogue genre led Barlandus to use the colloquies increasingly as a vehicle for the critical and often satirical and polemical discussion of the major preoccupations of his age, moral and religious topics far beyond the horizon of the schoolroom. His Dialogi are of great interest not only as examples of the Latin used in the schools, and the methods of teaching it, but also as a source of information concerning school and university life in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries e. The Dialogi are historical documents of great value to those who would picture not only the various aspects of student life at that time, but of culture generally cf.
Brunken, Handbuch zur Kinder- und Jugendliteratur. Vom Beginn des Buchdrucks bis , Stuttgart, , cols. He continued his studies at the University of Louvain, probably in Having studied at the College of the Pig, Barlandus received the degree of Master of Arts in and began teaching Latin.
In he was appointed professor of philosophy. In June he was elected procurator of the Dutch nation, a position he hold again in , , , and He also served terms as quodlibetarius in and and as dean of the faculty of arts in and He became one of the most ardent supporters of Erasmus and the new learning at the University of Louvain.
In autumn he composed a catalogue of Erasmus' writings for his Brother Cornelius. In he was offered the chair of Latin in the new Collegium Trilingue, but resigned in November , partly because the friction with the faculty of arts, of which he was still a member. In he was appointed to the chair of eloquence, a post he held until his death. For the use of his students he composed a Compendiosae institutions artis oratoriae and De amplification oratoria Barlandus was a prolific writer and published a collection of elegant sayings in , several historical works, among them De Hollandiae principibus , De rerum gestarum a Brabantiae ducibus historia , numerous paedagogical and moralistic works such as De ratione studii and Institutio christiani hominis His merits as a teacher and Latinist were especially recorded in Erasmus' Ciceronianus cf.

Champier was in Italy three times: in , in and in During his last travel he spent some time at Pavia, where he was admitted to the 'collegium artistarum et medicorum'. The speech by Pietro Antonio Rustico, lecturer on logic and medicine, held on that occasion and printed toward the end of the volume, shows how proud Champier was about this honor. Rustico also alludes to Champier's family-ties in Italy, which he sees in the Campeggi families of Bologna and Pavia.
At the end of the speech Rustico enumerates and praises the hitherto books published by Champier, important as an early bibliography. The main part of the volume consists of a 'epistolary duel' with Girolamo da Pavia, an Augustinian monk from Asti, with whom he had for five years an intensive correspondence through the Lyonese publisher Balthazar de Gabiano cf.
Ijsewijn, eds. He also sees in many Italian writers detractors moved only by jealousy and malice and mentions Valla, Merula, Poggio, Pico and Girolamo Balbo. Fierce of his Lyonnais origins he praises the antique origins of his native city on the authority of Berosus, which however was rightly questioned by Girolamo da Pavia cf. The volume contains furthermore various letters by Champier to others, e.
But the book also contains letters addressed to Champier, mainly from other scholars and physicians, among them Alessandro Benedetti and Robert Cockburn, bishop of Ross cf. MacDonald, et al. The volume closes with Catalogus preceptorum, patronorum, familarium et auditorum, in which Champier lists his teachers, patrons, friends and students. The few libraries, which hold a copy of this work and the few scholars who mentions it in their articles, all pretend the work to be printed either at Basel or at Venice.
They even printed another work containing letters by Champier Duellum epistolare see J.

Baudrier, Bibliographie lyonnaise, VI, Lyon, , p. Symphorien Champier, was born into a bourgeois family at Saint-Symphorien-sur-Croise, near Lyon and studied at the University of Paris before , when he matriculated at the medical school of Montpellier, which granted him his doctorate in He taught liberal arts in Grenoble and took a doctorate in theology in In he was appointed physician to Antoine Duke of Lorraine, who brought him to Nancy.
Champier followed the duke several time to Italy, where he was involved in the battles of Agnadello and Marignano During his stays in Italy he won recognition as an academic teacher from the University of Pavia. In he became an alderman in Lyon, and for the last twenty years of his life he was at the center of the cultural Renaissance of that city, while simultaneously promoting the study of medicine by helping to found the College of the Holy Trinity and sponsoring translations of, and writing commentaries on, the works of Hippocrates and Galen.
In the s he was involved in a controversy on the merits of Greek and Arab medicine with the German physician Lorenz Fries and also with the botanist Leonhard Fuchs. Defensio pro Symphoriano Campeggio Champier became more and more hostile to Arabic medicine and in Clysteriorum campi contra Arabum this work was ironically put by Rabelais in his library of Saint-Victor , he even goes so far to advise his readers to refrain from reading the Arabs.
With over fifty titles to his credit, Champier was a very prolific author, editor and compiler. His most important writings were in medicine, pharmacy, philosophy, and occultism, but he also worked in theology, history, biography, genealogy, poetry, patristics, and many other fields. From all sides this serried band of doctors made such inroads into the camp of the barbarian that, wherever they stood, no place was left to the enemy' cf.
