AN UNUSUAL ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A SEMI-GRISAILLE HISTORIATED INITIAL AND INHABITED BORDERS, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
French Flanders, ca, 1470. Hardcover. 178 x 124 mm (7 x 4 7/8"). Single column, 16 lines in a pleasing, distinctively flourished gothic hand. Rubrics in red, two two-line initials in burnished gold on a blue and pink ground with white tracery, RECTO WITH A PLEASING FIVE-LINE SEMI-GRISAILLE INITIAL outlined in burnished gold, the "D" in shades of blue with dark gray medallion at center featuring a bird with a human head in shades of gray with a light touch of gold at the neck, wing, and feet, THE SAME SIDE WITH AN ANIMATED THREE-QUARTER BORDER with sinuous hairline stems bearing strawberries, blue and lavender flowers, green and brushed gold leaves, and many burnished gold circlets, a rectangular compartment in the head portion of the border with a pink bird on a brown background, another compartment at upper corner with a gray and white bird on an azure background, and a compartment at lower corner with a small gray man on a green and brown background. Prickings visible along fore edge. A trace of thumbing to lower corner, otherwise IN FINE CONDITION, with generous margins, rich colors, and everything fresh. This is a thoroughly distinctive leaf originating in French Flanders (the rubrics are in French), perhaps somewhere like Cambrai, Valenciennes, or Tournai. The unusual script and decoration here are noteworthy. The scribe added flourishes to the ends of words and even to some internal letters, giving the effect of a kind of transitional hand between the gothic and the bâtarde (at a time when such a transition would have been taking place). The initial is darker than the … [Click Below for Full Description]

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A CHARMING HISTORIATED INITIAL AND INHABITED BORDERS, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
France, ca, 1470. Hardcover. 133 x 89 mm (5 1/4 x 3 1/2"). Single column, 16 lines in an attractive bâtarde hand. Rubrics in red, two two-line initials in burnished gold on a pink and blue ground with white tracery, two line fillers in colors and gold, the verso with an ascender of a "d" curling into the head margin and forming a face, the same side with a quarter panel border densely filled with much vegetation, burnished gold ivy leaves, and a golden bird with spread wings, the recto WITH A FOUR-LINE HISTORIATED INITIAL in blue and burnished gold DEPICTING SAINTS PHILIP AND JAMES THE LESS, and with an animated full floral border in many colors and much gold, the upper corner with a man seated on a bench, twisting to peer at something in the distance, the lower border with a prominent hybrid beast featuring the torso of a man and the hindquarters of a lion. A touch of wrinkling to tail margin, but in fine condition--clean, fresh, and generally very well preserved. The text here begins with the conclusion of the Suffrage to Saint Peter, followed by the complete Suffrage to the apostles Saint Philip and Saint James the Less, who share a feast day (May 1). In the miniature here, the two latter saints are shown in an interior featuring a blue flagstone floor and a gold-embroidered red tapestry on the wall behind. Philip, who was sent to preach in Phrygia, is attired as a traveller, wearing a short tunic with a hat, a staff, and a pouch. James, the Lord's brother who headed the Church in Jerusalem, is wearing long robes and holding a cross. The space occupied by the actual … [Click Below for Full Description]

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH TWO CHARMING HISTORIATED INITIALS AND INHABITED BORDERS, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
France, ca, 1470. Hardcover. 133 x 89 mm (5 1/4 x 3 1/2"). Single column, 16 lines in an attractive bâtarde hand. Rubrics in red, one two-line initial in burnished gold on a blue and pink ground, EACH SIDE WITH A FIVE-LINE HISTORIATED INITIAL in blue and burnished gold, THE ONE ON THE RECTO SHOWING SAINT FIACRE WITH HIS SPADE, THAT ON THE VERSO DEPICTING THE HOLY TRINITY, AND BOTH SIDES WITH A FULL INHABITED FLORAL BORDER containing many flowers, fruits, and acanthus leaves, that on the recto with a human-headed grotesque flapping red wings, that on the verso with two creatures, a similar grotesque having blue wings and a golden moth. A faint hint of wrinkling to tail edge, but IN ESPECIALLY FINE CONDITION, very clean, fresh and bright. In this lavishly illuminated leaf taken from the same manuscript as the previous item, we find Fiacre in his monk's habit, standing outside on the grass holding his spade, as befits the patron saint of gardeners. Behind him is a red backdrop elaborately painted with gold floral tracery. In this typical Holy Trinity image, God the Father and God the Son are seated, holding an open book between them and casting sidelong looks at each other. Both are clad in white and wrapped in a pink cloak that joins them together. Christ holds a tau cross in his right hand, the Father holds an orb and wears a gold papal-style crown rather than a nimbus. A gilt embroidered green tapestry hangs behind them, flanked on either side by fiery seraphim. Unaccountably not pictured is the dove representing the Holy Spirit, perhaps because of the artist's desi … [Click Below for Full Description]

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A HANDSOME INITIAL, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN DUTCH AND LATIN
Netherlands, ca. 1470. 159 x 114 mm. (6 1/4 x 4 1/2"). Single column, 19 lines in a pleasing gothic book hand. Attractively matted. Rubrics in red, 11 one-line initials in blue with red penwork or burnished gold with black penwork, two two-line initials in burnished gold on blue and pink grounds with white tracery, recto WITH A HANDSOME SIX-LINE "G" IN BURNISHED GOLD delicately chased with scroll work, the initial on a blue background and infilled with pink and elaborately scrolling white vines, the text with a vertical bar border of pink and gold on either side, AND WITH AN ANIMATED THREE-QUARTER BORDER filled with acanthus leaves and much other vegetation and FEATURING A STATELY PEACOCK trailing gold tail feathers as he struts through the fore-edge border. AN EXTREMELY FINE LEAF, clean, bright, and sparkling with gold. With text from the opening of the penultimate Hour of the Virgin, this extremely pretty leaf clearly comes from a very decorative manuscript that was considered to be a valued possession by its owners. The Dutch text is by Geert Groote (Gerardus Magnus in Latin or, in other Dutch variants, Gerard, Gerrit, or Gerhard Groet, 1340-84). At a time when Books of Hours were almost exclusively in Latin (with occasional calendars, rubrics, or personal prayers in the vernacular), Groote sought to make the communication between the individual and the divine more direct by translating the Office of the Virgin into Dutch in or about 1385. A priest whose life was characterized by luxury and irresponsibility until he experienced a profound spiritual awakening, Groote had … [Click Below for Full Description]

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH TWO CHARMING HISTORIATED INITIALS, ONE OF SAINT ANDREW, THE OTHER OF ST. BARTHOLOMEW, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Paris, ca, 1470. 140 x 89 mm (5 1/2 x 3 1/2"). Single column, 16 lines of text in a fine early bâtarde book hand. Attractively matted. Rubrics in red, verso with one two-line initial in burnished gold on a blue and pink ground, EACH SIDE WITH A FULL BORDER filled with swirling blue and gold acanthus leaves, sprays of pink, red, and blue flowers, and numerous burnished gold bezants on hairline stems, and both borders INHABITED BY A CHARMING GROTESQUE with a long neck, a human face, and a jester's hat in the lower border, THE RECTO WITH A FIVE-LINE HISTORIATED "C" FEATURING SAINT ANDREW on a burnished gold ground, THE VERSO WITH A LARGE FIVE-LINE HISTORIATED "B" in blue and white on a burnished gold ground DEPICTING SAINT BARTHOLOMEW holding the knife of his martyrdom. Small black smudge to the lower edge of the initial on the recto, otherwise only trivial defects; a very fine leaf with generous margins and with paint and gold that are bright and fresh. The illuminator of this leaf seems to have had a mind of his own when dressing his subjects. It is a little surprising to find Saint Andrew, brother of Saint Peter and patron saint of Scotland, who normally is garbed in apostolic robes, encased here in a suit of armor, capped with a helmet, and wielding a sword. The "Ecclesiastical History" of Ordericus Vitalis (1075-1143) may be responsible, for in his pages Saint Andrew is transformed into a dragon slayer. On the reverse, Saint Bartholomew is scantily clad as a recluse whose wardrobe has given out, but he, too, wields a sword, or at least a dagger, probably that with whi … [Click Below for Full Description]

RETZA, FRANCISCUS DE
Nuremberg: [Johann Sensenschmidt and Heinrich Kefer], 1470. FIRST PRINTING. This is a very desirable copy of what is apparently the first work printed in Nuremberg (and certainly the first from that city with a date), a book printed on extremely thick, wonderfully textured paper, our copy in its original Nuremberg binding and with distinguished provenance. The text is the original printing of the chief work of Franciscus de Retza (ca. 1343 - ca. 1427), an Austrian Dominican theologican and professor of theology at Vienna, the work dealing with the seven deadly sins and the corresponding virtues. Thought by Haebler to be a native of Eger in Hungary who learned his trade in Mainz, Johann Sensenschmidt (ca. 1420-91) was the prototypographer in the important printing center of Nuremberg. His career was divided into four stages, during which he changed partners, backers, and location (he moved to Bamberg in 1478). The present work comes from his earliest period, when he worked in partnership with Heinrich Kefer to produce as many as 20 books and was financed by Heinrich Rumel. Hawkins says that our "Comestorium" was "probably the first book printed at Nuremberg. A strong reason for assigning it to Sensenschmidt and Kefer in partnership rather than to the former alone, and also for regarding it as the first production of the press, is the phrase 'patronarum formarum concordia et proportione impressus' in its colophon, the words being taken from that to the Catholicon of Balbus printed at Mainz in 1460, anonymously, but almost certainly by Gutenberg, Kefer's old master" (Kefer wa … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 taught at many … [Click Below for Full Description]

(BLOCK BOOK.)
[South Germany, , c. 1470?-80]. Quarto (248 × 188 mm). Single leaf from a block book, contemporary hand-coloured woodcut printed on one side of the leaf only. Mounted and framed. A few small repairs to verso. Excellent condition. An extremely rare block book leaf, one of only two known to survive from this edition of the Ars Moriendi (The Art of Dying). Block books were a short-lived book format that coexisted with the earliest books printed using movable type. They were composed of individual woodcuts (often hand-coloured), and were usually based on older works that had circulated as manuscripts. The Art of Dying taught Christians how to avoid sin on the deathbed, and the illustrations depicted devils competing with angels and saints for a dying man's soul. This leaf is the ninth in a series of eleven images, showing the dying man protected from despair by a vision of the Penitent Thief, St. Peter, Mary Magdalene (carrying her ointment jar), and an angel. The series of images to which this leaf belongs is first recorded in a manuscript of c. 1420?-1430 in the Wellcome Library. The images were then engraved by the Master E.S., an anonymous artist of the Upper Rhine, from which various blocks were cut and used for both block books and incunabular editions (GW 2571 ff). The text accompanying this particular series of woodcuts is known as "Quamvis secundum philosophum tertio ethicorum" and block book editions usually had a page of text and a woodcut printed next to each other on one side of the sheet, which may well have been the case with this leaf. The actual woodblock used … [Click Below for Full Description]

anonymous]
[monastery Scriptorium for Noble class]. circa 1470, Dutch / German. Two sided-leaf, in red, blue and black ink. Written in miniscule on vellum. 3.75" x 2.75" Anonymous; Psalters such as the one this leaf comes from were created in late medieval monastery scriptoria. Minor marginal toning, else about fine. When, in the fifteenth century, a King from the region would hold court in the numerous castles throughout his realm, the nobility would follow with their prayer books. These were intentionally manufactured on this miniature scale by the monasteries to allow the nobility to easily carry them on these journeys. This remarkably well-preserved red, blue and black ink two-sided page originated in one such psalter. Nice example of incunabula - printed artifacts originating prior to 1501. -eph1 [Attributes: Soft Cover]
