Southern Netherlands, Ghent of Bruges, c. 1460-1470. SUBSTANTIAL BOOK OF HOURS IN GOOD CONDITION WITH MANY LARGE AND SMALL MINIATURES. 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]

Livre d'heures à l'usage de Bourges. Manuscrit enluminé en latin, sur parchemin;
Bourges, 1470. 115 ff. sur peau de vélin, précédés et suivis de deux feuillets de garde de papier; manuscrit lacunaire, il manque toutes les grandes miniatures, écriture bâtarde bourguignonne de deux modules, encre brune, réglure à l?encre rouge pâle (justification: 62 x 45 mm), 18 lignes par page, rubriques en rouge pâle, majuscules peintes à l'or bruni parsemant le texte, très nombreuses initiales peintes (2 lignes de hauteur) en brun et camaïeu d?or avec un bestiaire et hybrides zoomorphes variés; au calendrier, 12 petites miniatures figurant les signes du zodiaque, peintes en camaïeu d?or. Dimensions: 134 x 78 mm. Reliure de velours brodé à motifs floraux, avec manques au dos et au plat inférieur, deux fragments de ms de remploi (reliure du XVIe siècle). Ce très beau manuscrit est d?origine berrichonne. Le calendrier fait la part belle aux saints honorés à Bourges, avec plusieurs évêques de Bourges cités. On soulignera la mention rare au calendrier de la Fête des miracles de Notre-Dame de Déols (Indre), suggérant que le manuscrit fut peut-être prévu pour un usage à Déols (diocèse de Bourges), peut-être lié à l?église de Saint-Etienne de Déols, vu l?importance des entrées au calendrier pour saint Etienne. De plus, l?église de Saint-Etienne de Déols conservait au XVe siècle une copie de la statue de la Vierge miraculeuse (voir texte ci-dessous). L?Office des morts est clairement à l?usage de Bourges. Ce manuscrit étant incomplet de ses grandes enluminures, il est difficile de suggérer un atelier ou l?autre actif à Bourges. Toutefois, le décor rappelle clairement les manus … [Click Below for Full Description]

A HANDSOME ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN AND FRENCH, FROM THE WORKSHOP OF THE MAÎTRE DE L'ECHEVINAGE DE ROUEN
Rouen: , ca. 1470. Rouen, ca. 1470. This is an exceptionally lively and beautiful Book of Hours illuminated by a leading French atelier for a woman of obvious means, heavily illustrated with miniatures and extremely pleasing borders incorporating drolleries and related scenes. Rouen rivalled Paris as the center of illuminated manuscript production in the later 15th century, with particularly prolific output in the middle of the second half, when the present manuscript was produced. The dominant style was that of the so-called "Master of the Echevinage de Rouen" (also known as the "Master of the Geneva Latini"), an immensely popular and successful artist who took his name from several commissions he illuminated for the Echevinage (council of city aldermen) of Rouen. All the hallmarks of his style are here: pale-skinned women with oval heads on long necks framed by cascades of gilt-enhanced tresses, men with rugged faces shaded in tones of gray, draperies delicately hatched and cross-hatched with fine lines of liquid gold, backgrounds frequently including gilt brocade textiles, and landscapes depicted with an almost childlike simplicity and charm. By contrast, the panel borders are highly refined, and each displays a colorful arrangement of fruits, flowers, and acanthus leaves, while the borders around the miniatures show even greater variety. In fact, no two are the same: some seem to experiment playfully with color combinations (e.g., the attractive lozenges of acanthus around the Visitation), others utilize whimsical patterning (e.g., the quilted appearance of the Present … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rouen: , ca. 1470. Rouen, ca. 1470. Complete, well preserved, and skillfully executed, this is a very pleasing example of the work of the highly esteemed workshop of the Maître de l'Echevinage, illuminated for a woman sympathetic to the mendicant orders and with a carefully selected program of miniatures displaying excellent craftsmanship. The so-called "Master of the Echevinage de Rouen" (also known as the "Master of the Geneva Latini") was an immensely popular and successful artist who took his name from several commissions he illuminated for the Echevinage (council of city aldermen) of Rouen. His compositions have recognizable features: his colors are bright; his draperies are highlighted with delicate strokes of liquid gold; his female figures (and angels) have oval faces on long necks and very pale skin, their hair often cascading over their shoulders; shadows are conveyed with a gray wash, especially in men's faces; landscapes often have trees shaped like clumps of cotton-candy and dark blue skies dotted with a regular pattern of stars. The Crucifixion miniature here shows off this style to best effect, and is perhaps the most accomplished image in the entire manuscript. The composition and detail work is excellent, while the careful molding of Christ and the two thieves beautifully emphasizes the gauntness and delicacy of their bodies. The style of illumination seen here leaves no doubt that this book was produced at Rouen, while the final miniature reveals the image of a woman who was its first owner. The calendar confirms that she lived in Rouen and had iden … [Click Below for Full Description]

Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in Latin. Florence, ca. 1460-1470. 275x180 mm. i + 238 + ii leaves. Complete (with the replacement leaves, see below) but the volume evidently originally included at the beginning sixteen leaves with the Eclogues (an erasure on fol. 1r was probably the end of the Eclogues). Twenty-five quires (one quire of 10 leaves presumably lost).

At the beginning of each work titles in red capitals (fols. 1v, 45r).

Augustine, of Hippo, Saint
Ulrich Zell c, 1470. EDITIO PRINCEPS, gothic type, initials supplied in red (one corrected in black), rubricated throughout, a few marks by a contemporary reader including the correction of one word, a few smudges of red ink, notably on [b8], both sides, that on the recto a fingerprint?, text on [b5r] slightly out of kilter, last page very slightly soiled, gatherings [a] and [c] guarded, 24 leaves [a-c8], 8vo, 19th- or early 20th-century light brown hard-grained cloth, old blue edges. 'The first four works written by St. Augustine after his conversion to Christianity are dialogues that have influenced prominent thinkers from Boethius to Bernard Lonergan. Usualy called the Cassiciacum dialogues, these four works are a "literary triumph", combining Ciceronian and neo-Platonic philosophy, Roman comedy and Vergilian poetry, and early Christian theology. They are also, arguably, Augustine's most charming works, exhibiting his whimsical levity and ironic wryness. In this second, brief dialogue [De vita beata], Augustine and his mother, brother, son, and friends celebrate his thirty-second birthday by having a "feast of words" on the nature of happiness that includes a bittersweet metaphorical birthday cake. Using a process of reasoning that is philosophical as well as theological, Augustine and the group conclude that the truly happy life consists of "having God" through faith, hope, and charity' (blurb to Michael P. Foley's forthcoming Yale translation, vol. 2). As issued with 2 other texts: Augustinus [pseudo-; Caesarius Arelatensis]: De honestate mulierum.

Provenance: First leaf with 17th century inscription of the Carmelits Santa Barbara at Würzburg; Bookplate Victor von Stedingk.

The first printed book mentioning chess, comparing man's life with a chess play (Mundus iste totus quoddam scaccarium est). The more famous book on chess by William Caxton was printed some years later, in 1476. (Ehn/Kastner). The dating of the editio princeps is difficult as no such details are printed in the colophon. The dating by Historians range from 1466 to 1472 (see V. Scholderer and Voulliéme). John of Wales was a Franciscan theologian who wrote several well-received Latin works, primarily preaching aids, in Oxford and Paris in the late-thirteenth century.

PLUTARCH, Pompei viri illustris vita [Life of Pompey]
1470. HUMANIST MANUSCRIPT OF ONE OF PLUTARCH'S LIVES IN A LATIN TRANSLATION OF THE GREEK ORIGINAL. Decorated manuscript on paper, in Latin, Northern Italy, Lombardy, perhaps Ferrara or Mantua?, c. 1470-1480. Dimensions 215 x 155 mm. 71 folios, on thick paper with watermark of the type Briquet, "Basilic," no. 2671: Ferrara, 1471 or nos. 2672-2673: Mantua, 1478-1483, written in an Italian humanistic slightly sloping cursive script on up to 21 long lines, headings in margins in pale red ink, contemporary marginal annotations in brown ink. BINDING: Nineteenth-century English brown Russia binding, smooth back with blind tooling and gilt lettering: "Pompei Vita / Plutarchus / MS.", blind-stamped and gilt with monogram and motto on upper board, and arms on lower cover, brown paper endleaves, edges gilt. TEXT: This manuscript contains the life of Pompey the Great (106-48 B.C.), the distinguished military and political leader of the late Roman republic and Julius Caesar's military rival, included in Plutarch's Lives. This is one of about 50 recorded Renaissance manuscripts of the Latin translation from the Greek original by either Antonius Tudertinus Pacinus or Jacopo Angeli da Scarperia. The present manuscript provides testimony that the lives continued to circulate independently in manuscript form, even after their assembly into one common collection. PROVENANCE: Script and watermarks all point to an Italian origin for this manuscript, likely Northern Italy, Lombardy. It was later in the collection of John Broadley, F.S.A. (1774-1833).

PAULUS DE SANCTA MARIA, [Paul de Burgos]
Johann Mentelin, (pas après 1470), Strasbourg. ______ Format : In-folio. [285 x 201 mm] Collation : (218) ff., les feuillets 72, 217 et 218 blancs. Reliure : Peau de truie estampée sur ais de bois à décor floral. (Reliure de l'époque.). ____ Première édition. Pablo de Sancta Maria, dit aussi Paul de Burgos, (1351-1435), de son premier nom Solomon ha-Levi était rabbin et se convertit au catholicisme à la lecture des oeuvres de Thomas d'Acquin. Il passa plusieurs années à Paris, où il fut reçu docteur en théologie, séjourna à Londres et entama une carrière ecclésiastique en Espagne, et finit archevêque de Burgos. Il s'employa activement à la conversion des juifs et composa cet ouvrage l'année précédent sa mort. Le texte se présente sous la forme d'un dialogue entre Saul, un juif, et Paul, un chrétien. Cet écrit servira de base à toutes les publications ultérieures contre les juifs jusqu'à Martin Luther et au delà. Johannes Mentelin ou Jean Mentel (Sélestat,1410 - Strasbourg, 1478) a été le premier imprimeur de Strasbourg; il est très probable que Mentelin avait appris le nouvel d'art d'imprimer auprès de Gutenberg. Il existe deux tirages de ce volume, tous les deux sans date, avec de légères différences typographiques. Dans le premier, selon le BMC, la collation des trois premiers cahiers est : a10, b10, c12. Dans le second, la collation est a10, b12, c10. Cet exemplaire est bien du premier tirage, le second cahier en 10 feuillets et le troisième, 12. Piqûres de vers sur les premiers feuillets. GW M29971.

CICERO Marcus Tullius
1470. Large illuminated opening white-vine initial 'C' in gold and colours, initials in red and blue of various sizes, one or two with additional penwork, some corrected and overlaid presumably at the time; spaces left for greek letter. Folio (305 x 220 mm). 182 leaves (last blank). Early 18th century English panelled red morocco, covers with double gilt fillet, inner frame of fillets, decorative alternating fleur-de-lys and fleuron roll, large flower tools at corners, spine richly gilt in compartments and lettered not only with the title but also the printer's name, small paper label at head (spine faded, joints starting at head and foot, extremities rubbed). Venice, Nicolaus Jenson, 1470. The Macclesfield copy of one of the first Jenson printings in his ?perfect? roman type. One of only four editions published by Jenson in 1470, of which the Eusebius is now firmly considered to be the first (see Lowry, pp. 52-54). Dibdin notes that this edition is, ?very rare even upon paper? Although fairly well represented in libraries (ISTC lists 43 complete copies) it is extremely rare on the market, only the Stonyhurst copy at Sotheby's 2003 has appeared at auction since 1937, according to ABPC and RBH. This copy has the full colophon on 18/5v (f. 181v) as transcribed by BMC and GW - copies are known with the colophon lacking the two lines of prose stating the contents of the book. One of the two earliest editions of Cicero?s letters to Marcus Brutus, to his own brother, Quintus Tullius, and to Titus Pomponius Atticus.

Johannes Chrysostomus
Cologne: Ulrich Zell, 1470. Half morocco. Very good. Sm. 4to. ff.(22) complete including the final blank. Gothic letter. Rubricated throughout with the capital guide letters filled in. A few early marginal notes. The bottom blank margin of the first leaf and the blank verso of the final printed leaf with the old rubber stamp of "The Saint Brides Foundation, the William Blades Library" (deaccessioned, see below). 19th century black morocco over marbled boards, spine extremities rubbed. With the signature in pencil of the previous owner, William Blades. The first edition of this homily on Christian ethics. When it was translated into English in 1542, the title read "A Compendious Treatise... Proving That No Man Is Hurt But By Himself." Although the ISTC records "about 1470", this undated imprint has also been dated earlier. An old catalog description in the book states "after 1466" and the copy at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, states "1467." The Glasgow Incunabula Project records "(ca. 1468)." Zell, the first printer in Cologne, learned to print from Johann Fust and Peter Schoeffer. Many of his early books are not dated. This copy was deaccessioned and sold at auction by The St. Brides Library in 1952, to raise funds to support the library. There are only 3 holdings in the U. S. recorded by the ISTC (Columbia, Univ. of North Carolina, and Yale). See ISTC ij00291000; Goff J291; HC 5052; BMC I, 182.
