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. 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.

Moreno, Juan Joseph.
In the 18th century Mexico saw a birth of great biographical writing focusing on important figures in its history, especially its ecclesiastical history. Vasco de Quiroga (1470-1565) was an imposing and perhaps quixotic figure during the early post-Conquest decades. A learned man, he arrived in Mexico in 1531 as one of the first four judges of the high court (i.e., oidores) and became the first bishop of the far western province of Michoacan. In that "out of the way" region of Mexico he devoted himself to establishing European culture, ensuring fair treatment of the indigenous population, creating towns and cities, and building the first utopian community in the New World. => Not the least of his accomplishments was the creation of two pueblo-hospitals for native Americans, and appended and integral to this biography are his "Reglas, y ordenanzas para el gobierno de los Hospitales de Santa Fé de México, y Michoacàn," which occupy the final 29 pages. Historians still consider this to be the definitive biography of Quiroga. The => engraved portrait of him, handsome and from the burin of José Morales, adds a face to the words of the biographer and to the account of the deeds of the biographee.

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.

PAULUS DE SANCTA MARIA
Strasbourg, Johann Mentelin 1470 - In-folio [285 x 201 mm]. Collation : (218) ff., les feuillets 72, 217 et 218 blancs. 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.

Petrarca, Francesco.
. Klein-Oktav. Mit 3 Holzschnitt-Druckermarken, 6 halbseitigen Textholzschnitten und 1 doppelblattgroßen Holzschnittkarte. 27 nicht nummerierte Blatt, S.7 - 400 (mit diversen Fehlpaginierungen, aber so komplett), 64 nicht nummerierte Blatt. Flexibler Pergamentband der Zeit mit altem handschriftlichem Rückentitel.. Kommentierte Zusammenstellung der "Canzoniere" und der "Trifoni" des Francesco Petrarca in einer illustrierten Ausgabe des 16. Jahrhunderts auf Italienisch. - BM, Italien Books S. 505; Adams P - 826; Brunet IV,551. - Zum Inhalt: Teil 1: Die "Canzoniere" - eine Bezeichnung der um 1470 erschienen Lyriksammlung, die erst im 19.Jahrhundert üblich wurde - beschreibt die Liebe des lyrischen Ichs zu einer Dame Laura. Die Geschichte, die die Begegnung, das Liebeswerben, die unerfüllte Sehnsucht des Liebenden und schließlich den Tod der Geliebten beschreibt, gliedert sich in zwei Abschnitte: der Verherrlichung der lebenden und der toten Laura. Teil 2: Die Dichtung "Trionfi" gliedert sich in sechs Teile, in denen "die charakteristischen Schicksale der Seele des Dichters und die Historie des Menschengeschlechts erzählt" werden (siehe KNLL - P 181). Auch hier spielt die Figur der Laura, von der angenommen wird, daß ihr Petrarca wahrscheinlich im April 1327 begegnete und die im April 1348 verstarb, eine Rolle: "Am Jahrestag des Beginns seiner Liebe zu Laura [...] defilieren wie in den militärischen Triumphzügen des antiken Roms sechs allegorische Figuren an dem Dichter vorbei" (KNLL a.a.O.) und zwar: die Liebe, die Keuschheit, der Tod, der Ruhm, die Zeit und die Ewigkeit.
