Jehuda (auch: Juda) ben Isaak Abravanel, oft kurz Abravanel oder Abrabanel genannt, italienisch Leone Ebreo, (* um 1460 in Lissabon + nach 1521 in Neapel) jüdischer Philosoph, Arzt und Dichter aus Portugal. 1483 Vertreibung wegen Hochverrats aus Portugal nach Spanien.

Nochmalige Rückkehr nach Neapel. Abravanel gehörte zu den prominenten Vertretern des Platonismus in der Renaissance. Er verfügte über eine hervorragende humanistische Bildung und kannte sich in der christlichen ebenso wie in der jüdischen und der islamischen philosophischen Tradition aus. Sein Hauptwerk, die Dialoghi d'amore ("Dialoge über die Liebe"), knüpft an Platons Konzept des literarisch kunstvoll gestalteten philosophischen Dialogs an. Wie bei Platon und in der traditionellen belehrenden Dialogliteratur bemühen sich in den Dialoghi d'amore die Gesprächspartner gemeinsam um Erkenntnis. Abravanel wandelt jedoch das herkömmliche Konzept ab, indem e … [Click Below for Full Description]

AN ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT LEAF ON VELLUM WITH ROUNDELS DEPICTING THE LIFE OF ST. ALEXIUS, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Paris: , ca. 1460. Paris, ca. 1460. Leaf: 195 x 144 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 5/8"); frame: 420 x 345 mm. (16 1/2 x 13 1/2"). Single column, 13 lines in a fine gothic book hand. With gold frame and cream matting, both sides with glass. Rubrics in burnished gold, one inhabited initial with the image of a winged beast painted pink and white on a gold ground, a gold and pink bar surrounding the text on three sides, EACH SIDE WITH EXTRAVAGANTLY DECORATIVE FULL BORDERS of acanthus leaves, flowers, vegetation, vinestem work, and gold bezants, INCORPORATING TWO ROUNDEL MINIATURES DEPICTING THE LIFE OF ST. ALEXIUS.Two of the faces in the roundels a little chipped, remains of mounting tape just visible on inner edge, otherwise A FINE LEAF, extremely clean, with sparkling gold.The extraordinarily lavish and animated full borders, coupled here with extensive use of brushed and burnished gold, suggest that this leaf comes from a Book of Hours that was commissioned for a person or persons of high rank, since it would have been very costly. It comes from a manuscript that included numerous roundels depicting the lives of St. Catherine and the more obscure St. Alexius, and it is possible that this Book of Hours belonged to a husband and wife for whom these saints served as patrons. The story depicted in the two roundels--one showing a king and a kneeling man with a spear, the other showing a spear-wielding man (the same?) walking along a path--is a little difficult to follow, especially as we have only one leaf to go on. According to legend, St. Alexius fled a life of privilege in order to live an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Joseph, in a red robe and brown tunic, stands behind Mary while an unidentified man in a turban stands behind the kings. The large star the Magi have followed shines above the scene in bright gold in the richly-painted blue sky. Above (or behind) the figures (and behind bushes) appear a donkey and two camels and to the right is a large green dragon, a familiar symbol included to ward off evil.The highly detailed scene forms the interior of the initial “N”, which is itself formed by a stout red column with tendril/floral motifs, as well as the body of the dragon (which is chained to the outer structure of the letter). The background is dominated by the blue sky and the entire image is contained within a gold border.The miniature is a cutting from a musical leaf; the verso contains a large red initial on a decorative blue-and-white background and part of an anthropomorphic border to musical notations.Miniature: 4.75x4 inches (100x111mm).

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A SMALL MINIATURE OF SAINT GENEVIEVE, 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 merry grotesque with the body of a goose and a long-nosed human face on a serpentine neck, verso WITH AN ATTRACTIVE MINIATURE (measuring 35 x 33 mm.) OF SAINT GENEVIEVE standing in a room reading, WHILE BEHIND HER AN ANGEL CHASES AWAY A BLUE-WINGED DEMON. Very minor flaking of paint in the miniature (not detracting from the image), two faint black lines (perhaps offsetting from the outline of a miniature on the opposite page) running across the text, one of the lines entering the miniature, otherwise a very clean, bright, and still quite pleasing leaf. In this well composed and complex scene, the patron saint of Paris, Genevieve, who saved the city from Attila the Hun, is protected herself by an angel who has flown in at just the right moment. This celestial guard has a stick in each hand, and pokes the disgusting demon into submission.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A SMALL MINIATURE OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER, 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 yellow bird about to take flight, the same side WITH A VERY ATTRACTIVE MINIATURE (measuring 35 x 33 mm.) OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER BEARING THE CHRIST CHILD ACROSS A RIVER, the saint in a short tunic and flowing red cloak, his passenger in purple, the blue waters of the treacherous river choppy, the approaching bank steep and rocky, and atop it, a hermit lighting their way with a lamp held high. Just a hint of soil in the fore margin, but especially well preserved in general. A very popular saint in the Middle Ages--and so a figure often appearing in the Suffrages--St. Christopher led a life that comprised one long quest to find and serve the world's greatest ruler. The present detailed and intriguing image shows the end of that search, as the saint carries the Son of Man across a swollen river. Even though Christopher is massive (measuring more than seven feet tall) and greatly strong, the Christ Child becomes a ponderous burden, as the saint is carrying, in the Child's words, "not only the weight of the whole world, but also of Him who made it." The crusty-looking hermit with the lantern, who told Christopher to serve Christ by being a human ferry, is a wonderfully charming element here. A very popular saint in the Middle Ages--and so a figure often appearing in the Suffrages--St. Christopher led a life that comprised o … [Click Below for Full Description]

A VELLUM BIFOLIUM FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN, WITH A DEMI-GRISAILLE MINIATURE DEPICTING THE FLIGHT INTO EGYPT
Low Countries [probably Bruges], ca. 1460. This is an extremely well executed and charming miniature painted by an artist clearly indebted to Willem Vrelant (active in Bruges ca. 1454-81), but far better than most of his routine imitators. The various Vrelant-style artists have never been fully defined, in part because--as copious documentation reveals--he worked with family members and apprentices, who doubtless collaborated with him on manuscripts, and probably also on individual miniatures. This particular bifolium comes from a Book of Hours sold at Christie's in 1994 (and subsequently broken up before we obtained the bifolium), the description for which notes that it was "also containing possibly some of [Vrelant's] own work." The same description also suggests that the rounded Italianate style of script found here could indicate an Italian or Catalan patron (or perhaps a scribe with these connections). The present miniature depicts the Holy Family en route to Egypt, with the Virgin carrying her son on the back of an ass, and Joseph on foot carrying their meager belongings. The grisaille technique used in this miniature points to the skill and quality of the artist, as silver was a notoriously difficult color to deploy. From the French word "gris," meaning "gray," grisaille refers to a style of monochrome painting, normally executed using a black pigment such as lampblack and an inert white pigment. The technique first appeared in the late 13th century and experienced its greatest period of popularity from the second half of the 14th through the end of the 15th century … [Click Below for Full Description]

A VELLUM BIFOLIUM FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN, WITH A DEMI-GRISAILLE MINIATURE DEPICTING THE CORONATION OF THE VIRGIN
Low Countries [probably Bruges], ca. 1460. This charming miniature was painted by an artist clearly indebted to Willem Vrelant (active in Bruges ca. 1454-81), but far better than most of his rather routine imitators. The various Vrelant-style artists have never been fully defined, in part probably because--as copious documentation reveals--he worked with family members and apprentices, who doubtless collaborated with him on manuscripts, and probably also on individual miniatures. This particular bifolium comes from a Book of Hours sold at Christie's in 1994 (and subsequently broken up before we obtained the bifolium), the description for which notes that it was "also containing possibly some of [Vrelant's] own work." The same description also suggests that the rounded Italianate style of script found here could indicate an Italian or Catalan patron (or perhaps a scribe with these connections). The present miniature depicts the Coronation of the Virgin within an architectural setting. Mary is shown kneeling upon a starry pillow with three angels attending her, and Christ enthroned in front of her. The grisaille technique used here also points to the skill and quality of the artist. Silver was a notoriously difficult color to deploy, and it was perfected by those artists in the Low Countries that were patronized by the Dukes of Burgundy. From the French word "gris," meaning "gray," grisaille refers to a style of monochrome painting, normally executed using a black pigment such as lampblack and an inert white pigment.

A VELLUM BIFOLIUM FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN, WITH A DEMI-GRISAILLE MINIATURE DEPICTING THE CORONATION OF THE VIRGIN
ca. 1460, Low Countries [probably Bruges]. the bifolium measuring 94 x 140 mm. (3 5/8 x 5 1/2"). Single column, 15 lines in an Italianate gothic rotunda. Rubrics in red, one-line initials in blue or gold with red or blue penwork, two-line initials in gold on blue and gold ground, a splendid five-line initial painted blue with branchwork decoration on a gold ground, A FULL-PAGE DEMI-GRISAILLE MINIATURE depicting the Coronation of the Virgin within an arched compartment, WITH FULL BORDERS of acanthus leaves, flowers, vine-stems, and bezants, along with a charming bird in both full borders, all painted in a demi-grisaille fashion (the miniature with no text below and blank on the back). Red letters in the script a little faded, a series of small rust stains in the margin between the attached leaves, tiny moments of trivial soiling, but A BEAUTIFUL SPECIMEN, WITH CRISP DETAIL AND IN AN VERY FINE STATE OF PRESERVATION, with virtually no sign of erosion in the paint or gold.

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]

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.
