John Major (or Mair) (1467–1550) was a Scottish philosopher, much admired in his day and an acknowledged influence on all the great thinkers of the time. He was a very renowned teacher and his works much collected and frequently republished across Europe. His “sane conservatism” and his sceptical, logical approach to the study of texts such as Aristotle or the Bible, were less prized in the subsequent age of humanism where a more committed, and linguistic/literary, approach prevailed.

Jodocus Badius (1462–1535) was a pioneer of the printing industry, and also a renowned grammarian and pedagogue. Badius’s shop was one of the most productive of the period 1501–1530.

We do not find this very rare book for sale elsewhere worldwide; however, we find other post-incunable works my John Major for sale elsewhere for $3,500! This particular book is extremely desirable due to the printer, Badius. Note, on the title page, the illustrated woodcut device in the center of the page. This illustration was a trademark of the Badius print shop which was one of the most productive and popular print shops in the world during the first quarter of the 16th-century. Many other Badius printings can be found for sale elsewhere for well over $12,000!

 

The colophon states: “Impressum est rursum hoc opus Parisijs sub recognitione et impensis Jodoci Badij Ascensij ad Idus Octobris Anni redemptionis humane MDXIX Deo gratie.
