Die heute in Brüssel aufbewahrte Handschrift besitzt die prachtvollste Ausstattung. Sie wurde um 1455 in der Werkstatt des berühmten flämischen Buchmalers geschaffen, der als Girart-Meister bekannt ist. Auftraggeber war Philipp der Gute, Herzog von Burgund.

Facsimile. New reproduction. Author: Johann Gutenberg Language: Latin Date: 1455 Price: $599.99 History: Johann Gutenberg was born in Mainz, Germany, around 1400. He was the son of an aristocratic family, with ties to the local metalworking industry. He lived in Strasbourg (in present-day France) for a time, where he carried out experiments with movable metallic type, made from a mold. By the mid-1450's, he had perfected a system of printing with movable type. He used it to create what became the world's most famous book, the Latin translation of the Bible (Vulgate), otherwise known as, the Gutenberg Bible. Scholars have thoroughly researched all aspects of Gutenberg's work, including the elaborate typeface, with its 290 different characters derived from a Gothic missal script. The way he divided the text in the typesetting process, and the paper he used in the printing have also been thoroughly researched. However, certain fundamental matters about the Gutenberg Bible are still unknown, or remain matters of dispute. The date on which the printing was completed is based solely on the notation "1455" on the binding of the Paris paper copy. It is believed that 180 copies of the Bible were printed, but this information is based on a single letter of Enea Silvio Piccolomini (the future Pope Pius II), who viewed samples of Gutenberg's work, in Frankfurt in 1455. Gutenberg originally intended to print the headings of the books of the Bible in red, but he abandoned this approach, using instead a separately printed table as a pattern, for entering these lines by hand. Of the 49 ext … [Click Below for Full Description]

GUTENBERG, Johann; FAUST, Johann (publ.)
Johann Gutenberg and Johann Fust, 1455. Royal folio (369 x 256mm). Single leaf, on thick paper; 42-lines, double column; type: 1:140G. Bull s head watermark. Two initial I s, book headers and chapter numbers rubricated in alternating red and blue ink. Capitals highlighted with red strokes. Rubricator s guidelines in black-brown ink to upper blank margins in a neat German hand. Minimally dusty, very minor spotting to upper blank margin, tiny interlinear hole (f. 83r, lines 16-17); faint fading caused by the mount in the frame covering the outer margins by about 1 cm. A remarkably clean, well-margined and rubricated leaf from the 1455 Biblia Latina the first substantial European book to be printed with movable types and the symbol of the printing revolution. This Bible was produced in the course of five years, from 1450 to 1455, at the workshop of Johann Gutenberg and Johann Fust in Mainz, Germany. Each of the two volumes featured over 300 leaves of text in double column, the majority of which has 42 lines per page. Only 64 copies (several of which fragmentary) have survived out of approximately 158 to 180 originally produced, a quarter of which were probably printed on vellum. These copies all required the addition of initials and book headers by the hands of rubricators. In 1455, the then papal legate, and future Pope Julius II, wrote to the Cardinal Juan de Carvajal that he had seen quires from the Bible exhibited by Gutenberg in Frankfurt: The script is extremely neat and legible, not at all difficult to follow. Your grace would be able to read it without effort, and inde … [Click Below for Full Description]

Erste italienischsprachige Ausgabe dieser klassischen Geschichte der Stadt Florenz von 1350 bis 1455 (erschienen unter dem Titel "Historia Fiorentina" in Venedig 1476). - Gianfrancesco (oder Giovanni Francesco) Poggio Bracciolini (1380 - 1459) war einer der wichtigsten Humanisten der italienischen Renaissance. Er studierte in Florenz und ging um 1402 nach Rom, wo Papst Bonifatius IX. ihn zu einem seiner apostolischen Sekretäre machte, eine Position, die er unter den Päpsten Innozenz VII. (gestorben 1406), Gregor XII. (abgedankt 1415), Alexander V. (gestorben 1410) und dem Gegenpapst Johannes XXIII. (abgesetzt im Mai 1415) behielt. Die Absetzung des Letzteren und die Länge des Konzils von Konstanz (5. November 1414 bis 22. April 1418) gab ihm die Zeit, in den Bibliotheken und Klöstern Deutschlands und Frankreichs nach antiken Texten zu suchen, die den frühen Humanisten bekannt waren, aber in Italien nicht mehr existierten. Er entdeckte lange verschollene Texte von Cicero, Tacitus, Quintilian, Vegetius, Marcus Manilius, Ammianus Marcellinus, Vitruv, Statius und Petronius und spezialisierte sich darauf, Fragmente anhand des Schreibstils bestimmten Autoren zuzuordnen und so verlorene Werke zu rekonstruieren.

Second half of the nineteenth century - Watercolour with gouache over pencil and ink on buff paper, framed and glazed 82 x 63 cm. A fine pair of views capturing the hubbub and activity of the Grand Bazaar. The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, a network of 61 streets and thousands of shops. The construction of the future Grand Bazaar's core started during the winter of 1455/56, shortly after the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople. Sultan Mehmet II had an edifice erected devoted to the trading of textiles. It was named Cevâhir Bedestan ('Bedesten of Gems'). The word bedesten means "bazaar of the cloth sellers" The building lies on the slope of the third hill of Istanbul, between the ancient Fora of Constantine and of Theodosius. It was also near the first sultan's palace, the Old Palace (Eski Sarayi), which was also in construction in those same years. The present watercolours depict the Bazaar before the advent of shops as we know them, which were only introduced after the 1894 earthquake. Here we see traders sitting on wooden divans in front of their wares, with, in the foreground, prosperous visitors. In one, a merchant and his wife, in another a group of well-dressed, lightly veiled, Ottoman beauties. A native of Malta, Preziosi first visited Istanbul in 1842, and depicting the city and its people in their distinctive costumes and attitudes was to be the focus of his artistic career thereafter. In the 1850s he worked for the Illustrated London News, and in 1866 Preziosi was invited to paint the official portrait of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Riproduzione lussuosa delle poligrafiche Bolis di Bergamo su commissione della Banca popolare di Bergamo. Ex lilbris Ing. Evandro Terinelli all'inizio di ogni volume. Due volumi cm. 30 base e 41 di altezza, due astucci ricoperti di velluto. Stemma in argento finemente lavorato sui due piatti. Totale di circa 1300 pagine, circa 50 delle quali sono qui riprodotte a colori spettacolari che fanno magnificamente risaltare l'arte somma dei miniaturisti del '500 (Taddeo Crivelli e Franco del Russi della scuola ferrarese), mentre la scrittura gotica su due colonne fu opera del calligrafo milanese Pier Paolo Moroni. I due volumi che presentiamo sono in condizioni ottime. La magnifica opera, riconosciuta come un capolavoro assoluto del Rinascimento italiano, venne commissionata dal Principe Duca Borso tra il 1455 ed il 1461 e restò presso la corte Estense fino al 1859 . Con la fine del dominio estense, venne quindi portata a Vienna da Francesco Quinto. Finita poi in possesso dell'antiquario parigino ROMEUF, venne da questi comprata per una cifra incredibile nel 1923 dal padre della enciclopedia italiana GIOVANNI TRECCANI , che subito la fece rientrare in Italia donandola allo Stato, che ne decretò il ritorno a MODENA PRESSO LA BIBLIOTECA ESTENSE dove è tuttora custodita, proprio come ai fasti di Modena capitale.

(BIBLE IN LATIN). A NOBLE FRAGMENT, BEING A LEAF OF THE GUTENBERG BIBLE
Mainz: Johann Gutenberg and Johann Fust, ca. 1455. This is a leaf from the 42-Line (or Gutenberg) Bible, the first substantial book printed in Europe with movable type as well as the first printed edition of the Vulgate Bible. Though it was preceded by a few small printed items (e.g., two indulgences of 1454) and a few insignificant books (mostly copies of Donatus, and all of them now fragmentary), this is the book that traditionally marks the beginning of printing as we know it. Newton says in his essay included here with the leaf that Gutenberg's Bible "as an example of printing . . . has never been surpassed. Of all the arts, printing at its birth reached perfection more nearly than any other." The importance of this Bible in terms of the effect on Western civilization represented by the advent of printing in Europe can hardly be exaggerated, and the pleasure of owning even a fragmentary part of this singular production is proportionately acute. Our leaf is part of a fragment that was bought by Robert Curzon, Lord Zouche, in the duplicate sale of the Munich Royal Library in 1832; it was later sold by his descendants at Sotheby's in 1920 to Joseph Sabin, who, in turn, sold it to the bookseller Gabriel Wells, who broke it up into smaller fragments and individual leaves, partly for sale along with the Newton essay, as in the present case. Our leaf contains an important section from the Book of Judith (chapter 7:28-32, all of chapter 8, and chapter 9:1-12), in which Judith, at the request of the city governors of Bethulia, beseeches G_d to deliver the city and the … [Click Below for Full Description]
