AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A SMALL MINIATURE OF JOACHIM AND SAINT ANNE MEETING AT THE GOLDEN GATE, 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 in a fine gothic book hand. Attractively matted. The text similarly decorated as in the previous entry, but with the panel border on the recto inhabited by a charming bird in brown and yellow, the verso WITH A TOUCHING MINIATURE (measuring 35 x 33 mm.) OF SAINT ANNE AND JOACHIM MEETING AT THE GOLDEN GATE in Jerusalem, the white-haired Joachim gently embracing his wife, the pair standing before an impressive gate of brushed gold, with the towers of the city visible over the gray stone wall. One tiny smudge in the margin, otherwise in very fine condition. The miniature here contains the very uncommon image of Saint Anne and Joachim at what legend suggests was a crucial moment in the family history of the Savior. The story of the two figures in our miniature first appeared in the second century apocryphal Gospel of James, in which Anne is said to be the mother of the Virgin Mary. As such, Anne became a personage of great interest, and the legend that grew up around her life--a legend given credence in Voragine's 13th century "Golden Legend"--is certainly curious. The growth of Marian devotion in the Middle Ages prompted the thorny theological question of whether the Mother of God was free of original sin, and the obvious desire to see such a condition accepted nourished the notion that the Virgin Mary was "immaculately conceived" and therefore sin-free from the beginning of her life. Her parents, Anne and Joachim, were bitterly disappointed at being childless, and both pray … [Click Below for Full Description]

BENOIT, Pierre Jacques.
Muller, America 1460; Sabin 4737; Suriname-cat. UBA 0508a. First edition. The lively plates include topographic views, botanical, ethnographical and zoological subjects, and scenes from the life of the native Indians, the African-Americans and the white colonists. The plates are preceded by a historical survey of Surinam. According to the text on the title-page, there are one hundred plates (cent dessins ), but the list with illustrations in the book mentions only 99 illustrations, mainly half-page, on 49 plates. It is probable that the full-page lithographed title is included in the cent dessins. The Table des figures and the Table des matières have been bound in, in that order, after the plates. Binding rubbed, some browning or foxing. Good copy of this important work on Surinam.

HAIMO OF AUXERRE
1460. A BEAUTIFUL ILLUMINATED COPY OF THE COMMENTARY ON THE EPISTLES OF PAUL BY HAIMO OF AUXERRE COMMISSIONED BY Jean II Budé. Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in Latin, France, Paris, c. 1460-1480 and c. 1500. Dimensions 278 x 105 mm. 193 folios, catchwords, guide words, numerous small initial in red and blue, TEN LARGE DECORATED INITIALSin blue or red and gold accented with foliage and flowers, LARGE FRONTISPIECE MINIATURE with acanthus leaf border and bas-de-page the arms of Jean Budé. BINDING: Late eighteenth-century red morocco attributed to Bozerian, with fitted red slipcase. TEXT: This manuscript contains the commentary on the Epistles of Paul by Haimo of Auxerre apart from Romans and 1-2 Corinthians which never intended to be included. Haimo of Auxerre taught at the school of the Benedictine house of Saint-Germain at Auxerre in the ninth-century and is the author of many widely-read commentaries on the Song of Songs, Revelations, and the Minor Prophets, as well as of many sermons. He was best known for his pedagogical skills and anticipated scholasticism by three centuries. ILLUSTRATION: The manuscript opens with a two panel, three-quarter page miniature depicting Saint Paul, on the left, sending his letter via messenger to the Galatians, on the right. The frontispiece was added about 20 to 30 years after the text was completed. Stylistic analysis suggests it was painted in Troyes where it could have been completed by one of the sons of Jean Budé, who were canons at the Cathedral St.-Pierre in Troyes, perhaps at the behest of Jean Budé's son Guillaume.

Zustand: wie neu Einzigartige Prachtausgabe der Heiligen Schrift mit über 300 Buchmalereien aus Handschriften aus der Zeit vom frühen 12. Jahrhundert bis zum 15. Jahrhundert, die von der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek normalerweise zum Schutz vor Verfall und Beschädigung unter Verschluss gehalten werden. Die Wiener Bilderbibel wurde in einer strikt limitierten Auflage von 1.500 Exemplaren aufgelegt. Jedes Exemplar ist ein handgefertigtes Unikat mit Rundum-Goldschnitt und Ledereinband. Es erfüllt damit für Sammler und Liebhaber neben dem künstlerischen Anspruch auch die Voraussetzungen für eine sichere und nachhaltige Wertanlage - ein Familienerbstück für Generationen. Die Illustrationen stammen aus ca. 20 Bibelhandschriften, darunter die Neapolitanische Prachtbibel von 1360, die Soudenbalch-Bibel aus Utrecht von 1460, die Historienbibel aus Urach von 1463 und die legendäre Wenzelsbibel von 1389-99: die erste deutsche Bibelübersetzung, die bereits 140 Jahre vor Luther entstand. Ein auf Archivaufnahmen spezialisierter Fotograf hat alle 300 Illustrationen vor Ort aufgenommen. Mit großem technischen Aufwand wurden die Illustrationen dann reproduziert: Dank Golddruck und Patinierung wirken sie absolut originalgetreu. Etwa ein Drittel der Illustrationen wurde sogar im Zuge eines Spezialverfahrens mit Goldfolie bedruckt. Begleitet werden die 300 faszinierenden Darstellungen von der ökumenischen Fassung "Die gute Nachricht" dem einzigen interkonfessionellen Bibeltext.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH TWO LARGE HISTORIATED INITIALS DEPICTING THE CRUCIFIXION AND THE DEPOSITION, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Bruges, ca. 1460. n. The Crucifixion scene is simple but moving: the Virgin Mary and Saint John stand on either side of the cross, looking mournful, as Christ's head bows in submission to his fate. The Deposition has more action, with Joseph of Arimathea struggling to carry Christ down a ladder as the nails that pierced his hands and feet scatter on the ground. Nicodemus stands by to receive the body, and in an especially affecting touch, the Virgin Mary clutches her dead son's outstretched but lifeless hand.. 218 x 152 mm. (8 5/8 x 6"). Single column, 21 lines in a formal gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, one- and two-line initials in burnished gold on a blue and pink ground with white tracery, EACH SIDE WITH A SIX-LINE HISTORIATED INITIAL in pink with white tracery on a burnished gold ground, ONE DEPICTING THE CRUCIFIXION, THE OTHER THE DEPOSITION, BOTH SIDES WITH A FULL FLORAL BORDER alive with blue and gold acanthus, brightly colored fruit and flowers, and many tiny gold bezants.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A LARGE HISTORIATED INITIAL DEPICTING THE SCOURGING OF CHRIST, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Bruges, ca. 1460. n. The small but remarkably detailed scene here shows Jesus tied to a red pillar in the middle of a large room, its tessellated floor, stone walls, and barrel ceiling adding depth. On either side of Christ is a soldier in helmet, tunic, and leg armor with an upraised cat-o'-nine-tails. Tiny red welts have already appeared on Christ's body, but his expression is gentle and forgiving. One soldier shows enthusiasm for his task, while the bored expression on the face of the other brings to mind the phrase "banality of evil.". 218 x 152 mm. (8 5/8 x 6"). Single column, 21 lines in a formal gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, one- and two-line initials in burnished gold on a blue and pink ground with white tracery, recto with a pink and burnished gold bar border on the left of the text, with sprays of flowers bursting from either end, and a floral panel border on the right; verso with A SIX-LINE HISTORIATED INITIAL in pink with white tracery on a burnished gold ground, CONTAINING A DEPICTION OF THE SCOURGING OF CHRIST, the same side with A FULL FLORAL BORDER filled with blue and gold acanthus, sprays of flowers and fruit, and many tiny gold bezants.
