ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAVES, OFFERED INDIVIDUALLY
ca. 1470, Spain. 172 x 122 mm. (6 5/8 x 4 7/8"). Single column, 17 lines in a rounded gothic script. Rubrics in red, each leaf with several one-line initials in gold on blue or red ground with gold stippling, and ONE MULTI-LINE INITIAL painted red, blue, purple, and/or green with white highlighting on painted gold ground, with highly decorative and colorful extenders of various lengths and shapes, decorated with acanthus leaves, floral sprays, and other floral elements with gold vine-stem. Vellum slightly yellowed and with a little offsetting, some leaves with a small dampstain to one edge, various instances of moderate rust-staining along the gutter and occasional marginal soiling, but the specimens mostly quite clean, the colors bright, and the excellent illumination more than making up for any of the minor defects. From a Spanish Book of Hours or related devotional work, these leaves are exuberantly decorated with colorful initials and extenders by a top-rate atelier. The scrollwork and color combinations, highlighted by painted gold, are always charming and sometimes dazzling, and each leaf is highly individualized--a testament to the creativity and technical expertise of the artist(s). Both the script and the illumination are Italianate in flavor, though on one leaf from this group is a rubric in Spanish ("Los versos de Sant Bernar"), pointing to its origin and the location of its intended use. Similarly ornate decoration can be found in two Spanish manuscripts from Toledo and Castille: BL Henry Davis 656 and BNF Espagnol 12, respectively. For additional leaves at diff … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLORES, Juan de (1470-1525), Amorosa historia de Isabella et Aurelio, by M. Lelio Aletiphilo of Castilian language in Italic translated idiom Venice Melchiorre Sessa In 8vo (mm. 149x97); half-leather nineteenth-century binding, ribbed spine with gold friezes and title, marbled paper plates and endpapers; cc. [36]. Shelf mark: AI4. Title within beautiful geometric frame on a black background. Italic font. Imprint to the I4r card. White I4v card. Small lack in the text, skillfully restored, to the last paper, otherwise excellent copy. VERY RARE FOURTH EDITION of the Italian translation. Juan de Flores was one of the most widely read Spanish authors in Europe before Cervantes. His fame is mainly linked to the story of Grisel y Mirabella, which, composed at the end of the fifteenth century and published for the first time in 1495, was reprinted about sixty times in various languages until the end of the sixteenth century. Together with Cárcel de Amor and to Celestina, Flores' novel represents the only other Spanish opera of the time to have had a diffusion comparable to those ofOrlando Furioso or del Decameron. The novel, which constitutes an important feminist document, was read mainly by women and became a kind of manual for court education in modern languages. Through the story of the tragic story of two lovers persecuted by a cruel fate and killed without fault by inhuman laws, she entered the debate on the sexes with arrogance and placed herself at the center of the defense of the superiority of women. Starting from the controversial topic of love guilt, whether it is grea … [Click Below for Full Description]

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH MARGINAL FIGURES
Poitiers: , ca. 1470. Poitiers, ca. 1470. 157 x 107 mm. (6 1/4 x 4 1/4"). Single column, 14 lines, in a neat, regular gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, with several one-line initials and one two-line initial in brushed gold on red or blue squares, WITH A VERY PLEASING PANEL BORDER ON EACH SIDE, featuring blue and gold acanthus leaves and flowers, and WITH A COLORFUL HYBRID MONK IN RECTO BORDER, AND A GROTESQUE IN VERSO BORDER.Vellum slightly yellowed and a touch wrinkled in margins, but IN FINE CONDITION OVERALL.This leaf contains two immensely charming creatures in the borders: on the recto, the torso of a monk in flamboyant pink robes and a green hood holds an open book and what appears to be a small scourge, while his lower body consists of the hindquarters of a hairy animal; the verso features an oddly shaped beast with a long snout, tail, and two hind legs. The parent manuscript from where this leaf originates must have been produced in Poitiers, given the appearance in red in its calendar of Hilary and Radegund, saints of special interest in that locale. The artist here has affinities with the leading painter in Poitiers, the so-called Master of Adélaide of Savoie, at work in that city from about 1450 to 1480, and also with one of the leading masters of the century, Jean Fouquet.

[colophon:] Explanatio in psalterium ...(Colophon: Augsburg, printed by Johann Schüssler), [1470/71]. Folio (30 x 22 cm). Set in a single type, largely a rotunda gothic but with some roman influences with 35 lines per page, with about 150 manuscript "Lombardic" initials in red ink, the lines introducing the commentary for each psalm underscored and with manuscript paragraph marks, both in red ink. Late 19th-century(?) half vellum, boards covered with 2 leaves from a Latin Vulgate Bible printed on vellum. [266], [2 blank] pp. ([133], [1 blank] ll.) Second(?) edition, in the original Latin, of the important and influential extensive commentaries on each of the 150 psalms, by the Spanish Dominican cardinal Juan de Torquemada (ca. 1388-1468). He brings together quotations from the Church Fathers (his sources include Chrysostom, Augustine, Cassiodorus and Remigius) and discusses the meaning of psalms for devotion to Christ and for the Church generally.Torquemada finished his commentaries in 1463 and dedicated them to Pope Pius II, but what is generally considered the first printed edition appeared posthumously, a quarto by Ulrich Han in Rome, dated 4 October 1470. Though the present Augsburg folio edition is undated, Schüssler set up his printing office after 22 January 1470 but well before 28 June 1470 (when he completed a book of 98½ edition-sheets), and one copy of the present e … [Click Below for Full Description]

A c. 1470 medieval manuscript of love casuistry and courtly love.[15th CENTURY MANUSCRIPT] [LOVE] The demandes d'amour and the venditions d'amour. Ms. on vellum, ca. 1470; 210 x 155 mm, 29 leaves .$62,500A medieval manuscript of love casuistry and courtly love. Neatly written French manuscript in parchment, French gothic bastarda, numerous initials alternating in red and blue, calfskin leaves set in mauve ink, 19th century vellum binding, large golden fleur-de-lys at the corners and in the center of the plates, blindstamp with gilding, two liturgical fragments of the 12th century used as paste-downs, manuscript title Dits et ventes d'amour, some initials reworked in the 19th century. It is possible the manuscript is a substantial fragment of a longer text, but that requires additional investigation. Collections of demandes d'amour appeared in the fourteenth century. The demandes d'amour was a courtly game played between man and women with the subject of particularly thorny problems of love with impossible definitive answers. The game evolved from the schoolroom and entered the world of late medieval courts, knights and dames. They consisted of a series of questions and answers dealing with the ideology, etiquette, and allegorical codification of love; presented in the form of a dialogue between a man and a woman. These 'love-problems' where intended to provoke discussion and encourage witty conversation and grew in popularity among the aristocracy especially in France and England between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries.The older attribution of this manuscrip … [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.

CLOQUET, Jules Germain.
WorldCat (2 copies); cf. Heirs of Hippocrates, 1470; Norman Library 490; Twyman, Lithography 1800-1850, pp. 50-56. The complete plates-volumes of the first anatomical atlas to be illustrated by lithography, by the professor of clinical surgery Jules Germain Cloquet (1790-1883), here in a very rare Brussels edition, not recorded in the standard literature. Cloquet, who reformed education through the use of pictorial aids, conceived the project together with A. Béchard (who subsequently withdrew): a huge anatomical atlas with more than half of the illustrations newly drawn for the publication, mostly by Cloquet and his sister Lise, and the rest copied from the best earlier ones. The Anatomie de l'homme is believed to have been first published in 51 parts, but is usually found in 5 volumes published from 1821 to 1831, with the plates printed in Paris by Charles-Philibert de Lasteyrie, Godefroy Engelmann and Léon Brégeaut and/or Auguste Belin. Each volume covers a different aspect of human anatomy. The volumes I-IV of this edition appeared shortly after the Paris volumes III & IV were published in 1828, and the fifth volume after soon after the Paris edition appeared in 1831. Most of the plates in this Brussels edition name the artists who transferred the drawings to the stones and the lithographic offices that printed them, but none match those of the Paris edition. So they were all or mostly printed from a new set of lithographic stones. The edges of some plates have been folded, some plates are slightly foxed, but overall in good condition.

OXLEY, John.
Ferguson 835; Saalmink, p. 1470; cf. Wantrup, pp. 180-184; not in Tiele, Bibl.; for the author: Dunlop, "Oxley, John Joseph William Molesworth (1784-1828)", in: ADB (online ed.). First Dutch edition of "the foundation work in the field of Australian inland exploration and the first detailed description of the interior of New South Wales" (Wantrup). It details Oxley's two important expeditions into the inlands of New South Wales, then as little known as the mountains of the moon. John Oxley (1784?-1828) had been Surveyor General in New South Wales since 1811. In March 1817 he was selected to lead an expedition to trace the Lachlan River and to determine whether it entered into sea or into an inland lake; the results were rather disappointing. Tracing the river into impassable marshes, Oxley was compelled to return, arriving back at Bathurt on 29 August 1817. In May 1818 he was sent on a second expedition to investigate the Macquarie River. He discovered Castlereagh River, Liverpool Plains, the Peel River and Hastings River. With bookplate on pastedown. Some browning, the plates with a faint waterstain in upper margin, but otherwise in good condition. The binding scuffed with a small piece of leather near the front hinge gone.

1470s/1480s. The Agony in the Garden, Christ kneels looking up at a chalice while the Apostles sleep in the foreground. A crowd of soldiers, led by Judas, enters the garden through a little gate; with arched scalloped top, richly illuminated in gold and colours. Size 105 x 84 mm, the versos preserving 12 (out of 16?) lines of text in two sizes of gothic script, with illuminated 1- and 2-line initials and line-fillers, each with the upper edge slightly cropped, with a row of sewing(?) holes, and some pigment loss, framed and glazed A highly expressive and unusual miniature from the renowned Burckhardt-Wildt album, showing the dominant figures of the scene in splendid detail, especially facial expressions. The figures, which often display big heads, high foreheads and snub noses, show links with the Master of Walters 222 who seems to have worked in Poitiers. As noted in Sotheby?s 1983 catalogue of the Burkhardt-Wildt collection, the subject of the illumination is extremely rare, taken from the life of Christ but illustrating the Office of the Virgin, in this case the surviving verso text of 12 lines is from Compline with a fragment of the antiphon Cum iocunditate. The present cutting was one of six offered at the sale (originally Burckhardt-Wildt album ff. 34-35) whose verso texts are ?consistent with the Use of Auxerre, Châlons, and Besançon, hinting at eastern French and possibly Burgundian origin? Although the miniature is cropped this is somewhat redeemed by the fact that it has such an illustrious Swiss provenance from the late 18th century, belonging first to Peter Birm … [Click Below for Full Description]

1470. ff. 172 (su 174), legatura inizio '500 in marocchino bruno decorato da bande trasversali alternate a secco e in oro; in testa ad entrambi i piatti impressione a secco "+S+ Emilia". Al primo f. grande iniziale "B" miniata su fondo oro, istoriata all'interno con una finissima figura di Davide in preghiera; la decorazione si estende su 3 margini. In assenza del calendario, l'esame della scrittura, dell'ornamentazione e del testo (litanie ed innario), conducono all'ambiente lombardo e più in particolare ad un ambiente femminile domenicano della regione bresciana. Di notevole interesse la legatura: un ferro assai simile, seppur altrimenti utilizzato, si ritrova su due legature che rivestono edizioni aldine (De Marinis I, 439 e 441, tavv. LXXVIII e LXXVII). Il manoscritto si compone di 17 quaderni di 10 ff. + uno di 4 ff., con richiami. Mancano due fogli tra le attuali carte 12/13 e 16/17. La miniatura misura mm 43x50; nel testo 9 capilettera (mm 40x40) dipinti in blu o rosso su fondo di elaborati e finissimi fregi calligrafici in rosso, verde e seppia.

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]

Jahrhundert auf und verdrängten den Psalter aus seiner beherrschenden Rolle als Gebetbuch. Im Spätmittelalter waren sie in Kreisen des reichen, lesekundigen Adels und Stadtadels das private Andachtsbuch. Im 14. und 15. Jahrhundert erlebte das Stundenbuch seine verbreitungsmäßige und künstlerische Blütezeit in Frankreich und Flandern - davon zeugt die noch heute bekannte Bezeichnung "Livre d'heures", wenig später kamen sie über die Niederlande auch in das deutschsprachige Gebiet. In der katholischen Kirche des Römischen Ritus heißt heutzutage das "Stundenbuch" (lat. Liturgia horarum) das früher "Brevier" genannte liturgische Buch für das Stundengebet in deutscher Sprache.

Livre d'heures à l'usage de Bourges. Manuscrit enluminé en latin, sur parchemin.
France, 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vergilius Maro Publius
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). Collation: 110 (1-6 lost), 2-810, 910 (1-2 and 9 missing, replaced and numbered 74A, 74B, 80A), 10-2310, 248, 258 (most of 6, blank except for the colophon, cut away; 7-8 canc.). Blanks: 1r, 44v, 235v. Text block: 170x90 mm, one column, 26 lines. Ruled with dry point. Catchwords written vertically from top to bottom in the inner margin of the last page of each quire (a system of catchwords which the scribe Nicolaus Riccius used in his earliest manuscripts). Text written in brown ink in a formal humanist script, signed in the colophon on fol. 238r 'Nicolaus riccius spinosus vocatus scripsit'. At the beginning of each work titles in red capitals (fols. 1v, 45r). Fols. 74rA, 74B, 80A written in 1925 in a skilful imitation of Florentine humanist script by the English calligrapher William Graily Hewitt (1864-1952). On fols. 1v and 45r large gold and vinestem initials with small borders to the left, with clusters of gold-rayed discs and penwork at bottom; vinestem washed in yellow, grounds in brownish red, blue-green and darkish blue, dotted in white or yellow. Thirteen smaller gold initials on square panels of vinestem decoration, and (for the argumenta) fifteen three-line gold initials on blue, green and pink gr … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
