JOHN CHRYSOSTOM, Saint
1470. Translated by Franciscus Griffolinus (Aretinus). 279 leaves (of 280, without initial blank). 33 lines, Roman letter, 5-line initial "C" on [b]6r in gold with white vine stem decoration on a red, blue, & green ground, [b]7v with a 7-line gold initial "Q" with white vine stem decoration on a red, blue, green, & gold ground extending into upper & outer borders, 2- to 3-line initials supplied in blue. Folio (339 x 225 mm.), early 19th-cent. brown morocco (last leaf a little defective & stained at edges), sides richly decorated in gilt, spine richly gilt, a.e.g. Rome: Georgius Lauer for the Monastery of St. Eusebius, 29 October 1470. First edition of this most attractive book, one of the first books from the fifth Roman press. It is dedicated to Cosimo de' Medici. St. John Chrysostom (ca. 347-407), Bishop of Constantinople, studied law and theology at Antioch. After living as a hermit in a cave for several years, he returned to Antioch where he became famous as a preacher, which earned him the name Chrysostom, or "golden-mouthed." His great powers of oratory were directed especially to the instruction and moral reformation of the nominally Christian city of Antioch. His series of homilies, here printed, established his title as the greatest of the Christian expositors. The homilies combine a great facility for seeing the spiritual meaning of the author with an equal ability for immediate practical application. The translator, Franciscus Griffolinus (14518-83), was also known as Francesco Accolti. He was known as "le prince des jurisconsultes des son temps" and … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAGNI, Jacobus
219 leaves (the last two blank). 35 lines, spaces for initials with guide letters in red & occasionally in blue. Roman type. Small folio (280 x 205 mm.), cont. blindstamped calf over wooden boards (minor wear) by the Fraterherren from Hildesheim, two orig. clasps & catches. [Strasbourg: the "R-printer" (Adolf Rusch), about 1470-74]. First edition, and a fine copy in a contemporary binding, of a book which is now rare on the market. Jacobus Magni (or Jacques Legrand)(ca. 1365-1415), was a French Augustinian who flourished in Paris at the beginning of the 15th century. The Sophologium is an anthology of science and philosophy taken from ancient writers. This text enjoyed considerable popularity with thirteen editions in the 15th century. This handsome book was printed by Adolf Rusch, the "R-printer," the son-in-law of Strasbourg's first printer Johann Mentelin. Rusch first introduced Roman types into Germany. For a long time he remained unidentified and was referred to as the "R-printer" from the peculiar form of that majuscule in his roman font. A handsome and large copy. Occasional minor browning. 18th-century ownership inscription on first leaf. ? B.M.C., I, p. 61. Goff M-38. GKW M17664. Klebs 595.2.

Third or fourth edition (see below) of the most important work of St. Augustine; this is a magnificent copy printed throughout on vellum and finely illuminated for Leonardo Loredano (1436-1521), doge of Venice from 1501 until his death, with his family's coat-of-arms at the foot of the first text page. This is one of nine recorded copies printed on vellum of the fourth book printed in Venice. It was begun by the city's first printer Johannes de Spira, who had possibly learned the art in Mainz and was completed by his brother Vindelinus. The colophon gives a brief and fascinating history of the press and of this edition, stating that Johannes had already produced two editions of Cicero and one hundred copies of Pliny within three months and that he had died duri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles de Valois-Bourgogne, "le Téméraire" ("the Bold"), Duke of Burgundy (1433-1477).
1470. 234 x 216 mm. 1 p. in a neat bâtarde hand, address to verso with trace of seal. A military order to Count John IV of Nassau-Dillenberg, addressing him as 'treschier et feal cousin', in which Charles declares himself well-pleased with news he has received in a recent letter regarding the "picquenaires" (pikemen) and orders that they should make their way to him (presumably at Amiens) "par le pluscourt chemin". He also authorises the use of the seal of Brabant. The document is drafted in a neat scribal hand (the clerk's cipher appears at the lower right-hand corner) and is neatly signed by Charles himself. - Charles the Bold, last Valois Duke of Burgundy, was one of the most powerful rulers of medieval Europe, vying with King Louis XI ('The Prudent') for control of much of France and the Low Countries. In the 1470s their feud was concentrated on the territories of Northern France and the Duchy of Brabant (covering large parts of the modern Netherlands and Belgium). - Old folds. Some minor staining and careful reinforcements. Provenance: Otto August Schulz, Leipzig. Published in the Kronik of the Gennotschap te Utrecht, 15 January, 1859 (an offprint and later manuscript transcript are included with the document).

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A MINIATURE OF THE CORONATION OF THE VIRGIN, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Rouen, 1470. This very attractive leaf features the ultimate moment in the image cycle of the Hours of the Virgin, depicted in a burst of patterns and colors by a workshop of obvious skill, and offered in a fine state of preservation. The Coronation of the Virgin portrays the moment that Mary is crowned Queen of Heaven by God the Father, shown here as a bearded man with a pointed crown. The artist of this miniature has enlivened our scene with a trio of attending angels in contrasting pink and light blue robes. One in flight crowns the Virgin, while another stands behind her in prayer, and off to the right a seated angel strums a harp. A particularly delightful aspect of this leaf is the joy, movement, and clever design in the surrounding border. Acanthus leaves and hundreds of tiny dots swirl and dance on the page, and of particular interest are the three creatures who inhabit the border. As they look up at the miniature, each of them seems to mimic the gesture or posture (prayer, kneeling acceptance, musical accompaniment) of one of the figures in the coronation scene.. 163 x 120 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 3/4"). Single column, 13 lines (four lines on verso), in a fine gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, verso with pink and gold line fillers, five one-line capitals in gold on a blue and pink ground, a fine four-line initial painted blue on a gold ground with a large central floral motif, recto with a quarter panel border of acanthus leaves, and blue, pink, and red flowers with a ground of hundreds of tiny black dots with highlights of gold, verso with a highly decorative border inhab … [Click Below for Full Description]

Petrarca, Francesco, & Pietro Bembo.
Illustrated edition of Petrarch's Rime and Trionfi, with => seven gorgeous in-text woodcuts, one of Petrarch and Laura, six others depicting personifications of the various subjects of the Trionfi riding into battle.The commentary is that of Italian scholar Pietro Bembo (1470-1547), who has added a brief description of Petrarch's life and the origins of Laura. Luca Antonio Ridolfi's Tavola di Tutte le Rime de i Sonetti e Canzoni del Petrarca, an index listing the poet's various rhyme schemes and where to find them, follows Petrarch's text with a separate title-page and pagination -- an extraordinary production and project. Fowler notes this is a reissue of Bevilacqua's 1562 edition, which is a reprint of Rouillé's 1558 edition; the illustrations first appeared in L. Avanzo's 1557 edition. Bevilacqua's device is present on both main works' title-pages and after the colophon.

PAULUS DE SANCTA MARIA, [Paul de Burgos]
Strasbourg, Johann Mentelin, (pas après 1470). ____ 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.
