DECORATED MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT IN FRENCH ON PAPER, France, Bourges, c. 1460. 212 x 150 mm. 139 folios, watermark in Briquet, missing some leaves at the beginning and end (collation, i8 [of 12?, the first four leaves now lacking] ii-x12 xi10 [of 12, missing the final two leaves]), written in a bâtarde script with elements of cursive on up to 24 long lines (justification, 144 x 98 mm.), ruled in leadpoint, painted initials in red or blue.

TEXT: This manuscript contains one of only three copies of this versified work, composed by an anonymous author at the end of the fourteenth century and still unpublished.

Set within the framework of a dialogue and dream vision, the poem recounts a cleric?'s visit to the Seven Deadly Sins and his rescue from Hell by Hope, who brings him to Heaven to encounter the virtues and God.

Schedel, Hartmann; Wolgemuth, Michel and Pleydenwurff, Wilhelm (ills).
Anton Koberger, ca 1460-1494, Germany: - This work by Schedel [1440-1514] is an illustrated world history which is based on the Bible, which follows the story of human history related in the Bible and includes the histories of a number of important Western cities. Written in Latin by Hartmann Schedel it appeared in 1493. It is a well documented incunabulum, one of the first to successfully combine illustrations and text.This epic history divides human history into seven ages. Published and printed by Anton Koberger, the godfather of Albrecht Durer and the most successful German publisher of his day. The woodcut illustrations were made in the workshop of Michael Wolgemut [1434 - 1519], with an unprecedented number of 1,809 illustrations. These woodblocks include views of cities and towns, battles, kings, and saints.This 4th age print is of Bizantium, with a smaller wood block of a man playing chess. Bononia (now Bologna) is on the verso. Bizantium is a walled city by the water with King Solomon's Temple prominent, with insets of kings on the left, including Nebuchadnezzar & Xerxes along with latin text. Bononia on verso sports many buildings and sailing ships. Approximately 11 1/2 x 17", b & w, slt dusty at edges and scant fox spotting on right edge, just barely touching right edge of image. Some marks at top of page by text. [Attributes: First Edition]

RENAISSANCE MANUSCRIPT ON PAPER, Northeastern Italy (Venice?), c. 1460-80, 192 x 138 mm., 30 folios, watermark, unidentified type, complete (collation, i-iii10), written in a small and very regular humanistic cursive bookhand, two blank spaces for four-line initials, small guide letters for one-line initials throughout. BINDING: Nineteenth- or early twentieth-century half leather and marbled paper binding, spine with title in gilt, rubbed with visible wear along the sides and top and bottom of the spine, but overall in good condition. TEXT: This is a military treatise from ancient Greece, in a Latin translation by an eminent Greek humanist and diplomat who spent most of his adult life in Italy, serving the city of Venice and the Pope. There is no modern edition or census of the surviving manuscripts of this important text (possibly surviving in only fifteen manuscripts, including this copy). It is extremely rare on the market, with only one sale since 1947 recorded in the Schoenberg Database: ff. 1-28v, Onasander, De optimo imperatore, translated by Nicolaus Segundinus; although scribe left two blank folios at the end of the quire, the text is complete. Onasander has traditionally been identified with a Platonic philosopher who lived in the first century A.D. The text included here was probably written c. 49-59 A.D. It discusses the moral, social and military qualities and attitudes expected of a virtuous and successful general, as well as his choice of staff, attitude to war, religious duties, military formations, and conduct in allied and enemy territories.

Illuminated manuscript leaf on vellum
Paris: ca. 1460. 4.75? x 3.5.? Attractively matted illuminated manuscript on vellum, full inhabited border, decorated and illuminated with miniature of Christ rising from the tomb. One trivial (wax?) stain in the right border, small losses of paint here and there (including minor erosion in the faces of Christ and the Angel), top edge of the border just grazed, otherwise very fine, the vellum fresh and bright, the paint rich, and the gold exceptionally lustrous. The verso with a full inhabited border featuring acanthus and other vegetation and fruit as well as two small birds, the border framing a richly detailed arch-topped illuminated miniature of Christ rising from the tomb (measuring approx 68 x 45mm.), the scene with a red banner attached, the empty sarcophagus cleverly angled across the middle of the scene so as to create the illusion of recession in space, two dozing soldiers in armor in the foreground, a third partially visible behind the sarcophagus, on the lid of which an angel has perched, and in the background the steep hills of Judea with a walled city, a forest, and two rock formations. This miniature seems to have been painted by a masterful artist. The tall figure of Christ, although placed to one side, commands the viewer?s attention because of the delicacy with which he is painted and the bright scarlet of his cloak. And this is just one feature of a painting that in every important way suggests a very high level of sophistication. The composition of the scene represents a considerable achievement in that the greatest narrative in Christendom is packed i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vicent Carcia / Bibliotheca Rara: deutscher Kommentarband Antonie Wlosok., Rom / Neapel um 1460 (Faksimile-Nachdruck jüngeren Datums).. Limitierte Auflage in 1380 Exemplaren. 552 Seiten im Format 31,5 x 22,2cm, mit 38 Miniaturen, davon 11 ganzseitig.. Um sein großartiges Heldenepos, die Aeneis, das er in Neapel begonnen hatte, zu vollenden, unternahm Publius Vergilius Maro, kurz Vergil, eine Studienfahrt nach Griechenland und Kleinasien. Auf der Rückreise mit dem Schiff wurde er krank und verstarb 19 v. Chr. in Brindisi. Von den unter seinem Namen überlieferten Werken sind die Eclogae oder Bucolica, die Georgica und die Aeneis die einzigen Texte, deren Echtheit unumstritten ist. Die Bucolica, die von Theokrits Werk Eidyllia inspiriert wurden, bestehen aus zehn kurzen Gedichten, wobei nur zwei mehr als hundert Verse haben. All diese zeichnen sich mit Ausnahme des vierten Gedichtes durch ihren dyllischbukolischen Charakter aus. Die Georgica, ein Werk von nicht zu übertreffender Schönheit, hatte zum Ziel, dem Herrscher Augustus dabei zu helfen, eine Rückbesinnung auf die Kräfte der Natur zu fördern. Sie ist in vier Bücher unterteilt: Im ersten Buch behandelt Vergil den Ackerbau und schließt einen Landsmannkalender und die Witterungszeichen ein, im zweiten wird die Baumzucht, vor allem der Weinbau dargestellt, im dritten die Viehzucht und im vierten die Apikultur: die Bienenzucht.

Northern France [probably Paris], ca, 1460. Softcover. 130 x 98 mm (5 1/8 x 3 7/8"). This comes from a large fragment of a very appealing Book of Hours with especially charming borders containing human and zoological inhabitants. On this calendar leaf, the labor of the month consists of the cutting of grain, seen here being accomplished by a peasant kneeling with a sickle in hand and dressed in a full-length red garment, a wide-brimmed straw hat, and a long white cloth hanging down from the back of the head, no doubt as a cooling device. This piece of attire as well as the shadows cast by the sun suggest a hot July day. One would expect the work here to be done by a male, but everything about the figure (the apparel, the lightness of the tool, the fair complexion) strongly suggests a female. The verso shows Leo the golden Lion seated in a field beside a large gray rock. The usual flaking to the gold around the initials, otherwise fine.

This comes from a large fragment of a very appealing Book of Hours with especially charming borders containing human and zoological inhabitants. On this calendar leaf, we see the labor of the month showing a peasant in a short white tunic and brown hat cutting hay, with one large haystack behind him and a towered town in the distance. Verso with a brown and gold crustacean (more crayfish than crab) representing Cancer. Most of the gold around the "KL" missing, otherwise a fine, fresh leaf.

This comes from a large fragment of a very appealing Book of Hours with especially charming borders containing human and zoological inhabitants. The labor of the month shows a man in a wide-brimmed hat herding swine, the pigs rooting about in mud for acorns at the edge of a forest; verso depicting Sagittarius as a half-man, half-lion archer. The painting of the gathering scene here is especially detailed--for example, in the leaves of the forest trees, the acorns on the ground, and the bristles on the pigs' backs. Apart from minor flaking, in very fine, fresh condition, the miniatures especially detailed and vivid.

This comes from a large fragment of a very appealing Book of Hours with especially charming borders containing human and zoological inhabitants. On this calendar leaf, the labor of the month on the recto shows two women in a meadow, one a servant who is gathering flowers and bringing them in her apron to her noble mistress. Her lady, dressed aristocratically in a purple robe with black trim and a tall, conical hennin, is weaving the blossoms into a wreath. The fashionable lady appears in other miniatures from this work and is almost certainly the person for whom this Book of Hours was intended. On the verso of the leaf, the sturdy bull Taurus stands majestically in a field. Apart from minor loss of gold from the "KL" background, the leaf is in fine condition, quite clean and fresh.

Minor loss of gold around the Kalends, a couple of tiny marginal stains, otherwise excellent.

This comes from a large fragment of a very appealing Book of Hours with especially charming borders containing human and zoological inhabitants. The labor of the month shows a man in a short red tunic stomping grapes in a large wooden vat, a small vessel (perhaps containing wine?) in his left hand; beside him, but behind two wine barrels, is another man pouring wine from a ewer into a bowl. The verso shows Libra as a handsomely dressed woman in blue and green holding a pair of golden scales. Treading grapes, appearing as an October activity as often as one for September, is frequently the most fully realized of the Labor of the Month scenes, and, in keeping with this fact, the present leaf is probably the most interesting--and at the same time the most carefully painted--of those offered here. Most of the gold surrounding the Kalends missing, two small smudges in tail margin of recto, otherwise excellent.

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. 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 dem … [Click Below for Full Description]
