AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF, FROM AN ENGAGING LITTLE BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Northern France [probably Paris], ca. 1460s. 130 x 98 mm. (5 1/8 x 3 7/8"). Single column, 14 lines of text in a very fine gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, with just about every line containing either line fillers or one-line capital in blue with white tracery, the initials on a burnished gold ground and infilled with ivy leaves in blue, orange, and white, WITH A PANEL BORDER ON EACH SIDE, ONE BORDER INHABITED BY A FANCIFUL CREATURE, the remarkably charming resident placed amidst a tangle of acanthus leaves, flowers, buds, thistles, fruit, and other vegetation painted in brushed gold, blue, green, pink, and other colors. A very few minor signs of use, but generally IN EXTRAORDINARILY FINE CONDITION, the gold sparkling, the paint uneroded, and the vellum almost entirely clean and fresh. This leaf comes from a large fragment of a beautifully executed little Book of Hours done by very sophisticated artists whose illumination in general--and zoomorphic inhabitation in particular--is extremely charming. The borders here are the source of considerable delight, containing carnations, thistles, roses, daisies, violets, strawberries, grapes, a variety of berries, and featuring appears to be some combination of fish and butterfly. Leaves from this group are certainly among the most attractive and delightful small Book of Hours leaves we have ever offered for sale.

Northern France [probably Paris]: , ca. 1460s. Northern France [probably Paris], ca. 1460s. 130 x 98 mm. (5 1/8 x 3 7/8"). Single column, recto with 18 lines of text in a very fine gothic book hand.

Though the recto and its roundel (depicting a man warming himself in front of a fire) are not without a little wear due to its vulnerable placement early in the manuscript, the verso is remarkably well preserved; its roundel depicts two fish (for Pisces) and is of very high quality.

Millet, Jean-François. (1814 - 1875)
Pencil on paper. 23.5 x 15 cm (9 1/4 x 5 7/8 in.) Stamped with initials 'J.F.M' (Lugt 1460), lower right, recto. In fine condition, tipped at edges to a period decorative French mat with gilt detailing. Millet made many beautiful drawings intended for collectors - "well turned-out drawings" Millet would write -  but his oeuvre also includes a large number of sketches, studies of nature, first thoughts jotted down in a notebook. They were found in his studio and sold at auction after Millet's death in 1875 and after that of his widow in 1894.  Sketches such as the present example were likely made in the open air, in notebooks, works rooted in his profound love of nature, particularly of forests, which he revealed in his letters on occasion, in a savage, almost violent lyricism.  Millet's drawings, like his engravings, had a significant influence on the generation of avant-garde artists that emerged in the 1870s-1880s - Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin or Vincent Van Gogh -,as well as on the official proponents of academic naturalism - Jules Breton and Léon Lhermitte.  [Attributes: In Dust Jacket]

Gonzaga, Francesco, cardinal (1444-1483)].
No place, ca. 1460s. 113 x 76 mm. Vesica-shaped red wax seal. Stored in a paper box. A cardinal's pointed oval seal of the 'aedicula' type often seen from the mid-15th century onwards: three figures with the Virgin Mary and the Infant Jesus, shown within elaborate Renaissance architecture (a single-compartment aedicula framed by columns; the Gothic screenwork canopies of the earlier Gothic fashion have here been replaced by a classical pediment). The seal corresponds precisely to the specimen preserved in the Upper Austrian Archives, Gleink, Urk. 1467 X 08; No. 14. - Cardinal Francesco Gonzaga served during the reigns of Popes Pius II, Paul II and Sixtus IV. The classical design of his seal ties in with his patronage of the arts and his penchant for collecting antiquities. - Lower point of the seal chipped with some loss to the coat of arms, otherwise well preserved.

Guido da Pisa
Italy, Tuscany, Florence(?), c. 1440-1460. BOOK DESCRIPTION: FIFTEENTH-CENTURY COPY OF GUIDO DA PISA'S HISTORY OF ROME, IN ITALIAN. In Italian, decorated manuscript on parchment, Italy, Tuscany, Florence(?), c. 1440-1460. Dimensions 260 x 182 mm., 83 folios, lacking nine leaves, horizontal catchwords, written in brown ink by two different scribes in Italian cursive mercantesca script in single column on 38 lines, penwork initials. BINDING: ORIGINAL dark brown calf over wooden boards blind-tooled with fillets, twisted rope and x-form motifs, fitted purple buckram case c. 1900. TEXT: Guido da Pisa is best-known for his commentary on Dante, and Dante is cited often in this work, a history of Rome composed within the format of a universal chronicle. This text is now remarkably rare; in fact this is the first copy to appear on the open market in over 140 years, and one of only a few copies on parchment. PROVENANCE: script and decoration suggest that the manuscript was written in Tuscany in the middle of the fifteenth century. The binding, decoration, the quality of the script and the choice of parchment support suggest it was made for a patron of some wealth and influence; several inscriptions from unidentified early modern owners; Gerali di Pontremoli (in Tuscany), inscription on front pastedown, records the acquisition of the book from his family on November 20, 1889. CONDITION: small stains, slight water damage outer margins ff. 65-68, clasps and catches missing, losses of leather especially at foot of boards and spine (the latter with modern conservation), worm holes, otherw … [Click Below for Full Description]

France, Paris, c. 1460-1470. BOOK DESCRIPTION: LOVELY BOOK OF HOURS BY ONE OF THE MOST SKILLFUL PARISIAN ILLUMINATOR OF HIS GENERATION. In Latin and French, illuminated manuscript on parchment, France, Paris, c. 1460-1470. Dimensions 176 x 123 mm., 147 folios, complete, written in brown ink in a cursive bookhand on 15 lines, SIX HISTORIATED INITIALS, FIFTEEN LARGE MINIATURES. BINDING: 16th-century(?) gold-tooled brown morocco, attachment points for two clasps (both lost).ILLUSTRATION: An undoubtedly Parisian Book of Hours attributed to an artist in the circle of the Coëtivy Master, as indicated by the rendering of faces and draperies, the decorative scheme of the borders, and the designs for the miniatures. The Coëtivy Master (perhaps identified as Colin d'Amiens, active in Paris c. 1455 to c. 1485) and his workshop illuminated a great number of Books of Hours and created designs for printed books and tapestries; this master has been called the "most important artist practicing in Paris" in the third quarter of the fifteenth century. The fifteen large miniatures comprise a complete cycle for a Book of Hours; their borders are particularly richly decorated. PROVENANCE: Copied and illuminated in France and almost certainly in Paris c. 1460-1470. The inclusion of French prayers (or poems) and historiated initials for the virgin Saints Genevieve and Avia before the Hours of the Virgin and the richness of the borders hint that it could have been made to order as a commission.

BALBUS, Johannes
1460. Gothic type, double column, 66 lines (33 line-pairs). [373] leaves. Decoration by a contemporary Dutch or Westphalian artist (see below). Eight pinholes to the sheet preserved. Royal folio (385 x 270 mm.), mid-18th cent. French red morocco over heavy boards, triple gilt fillets round sides, spine nicely gilt, a.e.g. Mainz: [Peter Schoeffer], 1460 [but ca. 1469].Second impression (of three) of the original edition, first printed in 1460, in which Gutenberg first used the revolutionary method of two-line printing slugs, thereby finding "a solution to the challenge of permanently fixing typographical compositions" (Needham, p. 432). The Catholicon was not printed with movable type, Gutenberg's first great invention, but with units of paired lines or "slugs." It is an early form of stereotyping or linotype setting. The method was as follows: as composition in type of the Catholicon progressed, a secondary casting was made in units of paired lines or "slugs" in order to allow future reprinting without the expense of resetting the text.As mentioned above, there are three distinct impressions of the Catholicon, all printed from the same setting of type - "down to the most minute details" (Needham, p. 423) - but on distinct presses and using different paper stocks: 1. the 1460 impression, by Gutenberg, is printed on vellum or Bull's Head paper; 2. our second impression, using the slugs created by Gutenberg, was printed by Peter Schoeffer on Galliziani paper from Basel; and 3. a third impression, probably printed by Schoeffer ca. 1472, on Tower- and Crown-watermarked … [Click Below for Full Description]

Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in Latin, Southern Netherlands, Ghent or Bruges, c. 1460-1470. Dimensions 179 x 124 mm., 118 folios, complete, written in brown ink in a textualis formata bookhand on 19 lines, one-line initials, 2- to 3- line champ initials, fourteen 6-line initials, one HISTORIATED INITIAL (5-lines), ELEVEN SMALL MINIATURES (6-lines), FOURTEEN FULL-PAGE MINIATURES, 28 FULL BORDERS. BINDING: nineteenth-century dark brown calf, gold-tooled, contains words in gilt (mostly rubbed out) MARIE (front board) and ROSARIE (back board), gauffered edges. ILLUSTRATION: Painted in the style of the Masters of the Beady Eyes, this Book of Hours is distinguished by its unusual and enigmatic details. The artist is eager to represent architectural and structural details, which sometimes lead to curious spatial arrangements and juxtapositions. PROVENANCE: The painting style situates the production of this book in Ghent or Bruges around 1460-70. Due to the inclusion of a suffrage to St. Quentin (venerated in Northern France), the manuscript was destined for use in the francophone region of the Southern Netherlands extending to the Northern France. It was probably made for an individual from Burgundy stationed in the Southern Netherlands, possibly in Bruges. Prayers in French and motets in Latin transcribed in the sixteenth century to the blank pages. François Legrand (d. 1716) of Burgundy probably owned the book in the seventeenth century, … [Click Below for Full Description]

[France, c. 1460-1470]. MINIATURE. Leaves from a Book of Hours in Latin, illuminated manuscript on parchment. [France, c. 1460-1470] Six single leaves (ca. 18×13 cm; 26×21 cm framed and glazed), plus one double leaf framed separately (31×24 cm), with 22 lines in a fine gothic bookhand with readings from the monastic offices for the various liturgical hours of the day. Five leaves (including the double leaf) with small initials in blue or liquid gold with contrasting red or black penwork; 3 leaves with larger initials in colour on gold grounds enclosing vividly coloured foliate sprays, the text enclosed within with gold and coloured text bars, border decoration of coloured swirls of acanthus leaves and single hairline foliage terminating in a wealth of painted flowers and golden leaves. These are leaves from perhaps the most fundamental and popular type of book produced during the Middle Ages: the Book of Hours. During the fourteenth century, the explosion of wealth and piety pushed the affluent secular classes to adopt the monastic liturgical hours – certain hours of the day which began with recitations of prayers and parts of the liturgy predominantly in Latin – and ever increasingly opulent copies of these texts were produced for secular patrons to keep with them at all times and to use when the local church or monastery chimed the correct hour. By the time of the production of this copy gold was frequently used to catch the light as the reader turned the book in his hands and heighten the visual impact of the page.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A SMALL MINIATURE OF SAINT ANTHONY THE GREAT, FROM AN ENGAGING LITTLE BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Northern France [probably Paris], ca. 1460s. This is a memorably animated miniature showing the father of Christian monasticism serenely ignoring the demons sent to taunt and tempt him. The patron saint of swineherds (thus the pig as his attribute), Saint Anthony withstood many years of demonic torments, and offered advice and encouragement to others in their own trials. While the artist was restricted by an expected reverence toward the saint, he felt no such constraint in depicting the devils, and the one on the left--with a chest resembling the red scales of an alligator--is a particularly successful expression of artistic license.. 130 x 98 mm. (5 1/8 x 3 7/8"). Single column, 14 lines in a fine gothic book hand. Attractively matted. The text similarly decorated as in the previous entry, but with the panel border on the verso inhabited by a long-necked hybrid beast, the same side WITH A FINE, SMALL MINIATURE (measuring 35 x 33 mm.) OF SAINT ANTHONY THE GREAT, the Desert Father seated on a broad wooden bench beneath a red and gold canopy, one hand upraised in blessing, the other holding an open book, the saint flanked on either side by a fierce demon, one raising a stick with which to beat him, and in the foreground, a pig sniffing around the saint's feet. Minor loss of paint in a small spot on the miniature, affecting the head of one demon, one initial faintly blurred, otherwise fresh, clean, and altogether pleasing. This is a memorably animated miniature showing the father of Christian monasticism serenely ignoring the demons sent to taunt and tempt him. The patr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Auflage (zusätzl. 80 röm. num. Ex., diese nicht im Handel).Karl der Kühne, Herzog von Burgund liess sich um 1460 vom Buchmaler Lieven van Lathem, dem Wiener Meister der Maria von Burgund sowie dem Schreiber Nicolas Spierinc ein Gebetbuch zum persönlichen Gebrauch anfertigen: das Gebetbuch Karls des Kühnen. Es legt Zeugnis davon ab, daß der mächtigste Mann in Europa auch als Mäzen nicht seinesgleichen hatte - ist doch das Buch Seite für Seite mit Gold ausgestattet! Auf 159 Blättern im Format 124 x 92 mm entfaltet sich in insgesamt 47 Miniaturen die überbordende Pracht burgundischer Bücherliebe. Die zeichnerische Fabulierlust setzt sich bis in die erfindungsreichen Bordüren fort, wo sich zwischen farbigem Akanthus und Goldpollen ungezählte Drolerien, Menschen und Vögel tummeln. Drei Porträts des Auftraggebers belegen die sehr persönliche Beziehung Karls zu seinem Gebetbuch.Auch die Textseiten beeindrucken durch reichen Schmuck. Die feine Kalligraphie wird von mehr als 360 Initialen auf zumeist ziseliertem Goldgrund gegliedert jede Textseite ist zudem mit einer ornamentalen Bordüre verziert. So spiegelt das Gebetbuch Karls des Kühnen Seite für Seite Pracht und Luxus Burgunds w … [Click Below for Full Description]
