CORNELIUS NEPOS
Venice: Nicolaus Jenson, 8 March 1471. EDITIO PRINCEPS. This is the first appearance in print of the earliest surviving biographies from Classical antiquity, a work that continues to be of interest to modern scholars. First century B.C. Roman polymath Cornelius Nepos lived in the final days of the Roman republic, where his friends and admirers included Cicero, Catullus, and Atticus; he died early in the reign of Emperor Augustus. His major, ambitious work was the present "Lives of Famous Men," a collection of biographies of great (mostly Greek) men from a variety of professions. Its aim was to provide Romans with role models and guides to success. Only the present section, on foreign military commanders, survives. For many years, it was falsely attributed to a copyist from late antiquity, Aemilius Probus, whose name appears in the title headline here; it was only in the 16th century that Cornelius' authorship was established. One can appreciate the role of printing in preserving and disseminating the work of Classical authors by considering how breathtakingly close this work came to being lost to the ages: by the 12th century, just one manuscript copy survived. BMC records this as the fifth publication by Nicolaus Jenson (1420-80), arguably one of the three most renowned printers of the incunabular era (with Gutenberg and Koberger). Born a Frenchman near Troyes, he set up shop as a printer in Venice in 1470, and went on to print in excess of 100 works. He is best known today for his perfecting of the roman typeface, something that he used early in his career, something on … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARCUS TULLIUS CICERO with commentary by PIETRO MARSO
INTRIGUING MANUSCRIPT BASED ON TWO EDITIONS OF CICERO'S DE OFFICIIS, COPIED IN THE CIRCLE OF THE EMINENT HUMANISTS WHO FOUNDED THE SORBONNE PRESS IN PARIS. Decorated manuscript on parchment, in Latin, France, likely Paris, certainly after 1471-2, likely between 1481-1491. Dimensions 179 x 118 mm. 149 folios preceded and followed by 2 paper flyleaves, missing 3 leaves (the first leaf of the three books), in brown ink, COPIOUS INTERLINEAR AND MARGINAL COMMENTARY, parchment ruled in light red, rubrics in red with some in blue, paragraph marks in alternating red or blue, some guide letters, numerous 1- TO 3-LINE HIGH INITALS in gold and cardinal red grounds with calligraphic decoration, some capitals touched in yellow, a few marginal annotations in darker brown ink added in the margins of the first leaves added in a later cursive hand. BINDING: Bound in brown calf over pasteboard, rebacked c. 1800, 19th c. marbled paper pastedowns. TEXT: The core text is a copy of Cicero's De officiis (On Duties), in three books, a philosophical and pedagogical treatise on moral goodness and the conflict between right and expediency, written circa 40 B.C. and addressed to his son Marcus. It is enhanced by a copious and profuse marginal and interlinear commentary composed by the Italian humanist Pietro Marso (1443-1512), one of the oldest, yet least known, disciples of Pomponius Leto in Rome. The copy is undoubtedly the refined and erudite work of a French humanist, whose identity has yet to be unveiled. The oddity is that the present manuscript associates elements from two early imprints, one P … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dionysius de Burgo Sancti Sepulcri.
1471. Folio (225 x 306 mm). 371 ff. (instead of 372: wants last blank f.; first blank glued to flyleaf). 36-38 lines. Roman type, 1:103R. Contemp. blindstamped half pigskin over wooden boards on three raised double bands with later giltstamped label to spine. Remains of a clasp (with attractively tooled brass boss on back cover). Only edition; variant with misprinted incipit ("heremitarnm"). Principal work of the Augustinian Dionysius de Robertis (c. 1280-1342) from Borgo San Sepolcro in Tuscany, Bishop of Monopoli in Lower Italy since 1340. The Humanist was a close friend of the younger poets Boccaccio and Petrarca (he even presented the latter with a ms. of St. Augustine's "Confessions"). "He was the first scholar to interpret classical authors at the University of Naples. Of his works written during this period, the only one to survive is his commentary of the 'Facta et dicta memorabilia' of Valerius Maximus, much appreciated by contemporaries and by posterity (some 30 mss., printed in Strasbourg c. 1470)" (cf. A. Zumkeller, in: LMA III, 1088). An abridged German version of the commentary was published in Augsburg in 1489. The collection of historical anecdotes (mainly from Roman history) was assembled by Valerianus Maximus for purposes of rhetorical training and remained popular throughout the Middle Ages. The present edition is a splendid example of the first Roman type used in Germany, introduced by Rusch in 1467 (cf. LGB² VI, 424). The printer is also referred to as "the R-Printer" or the "printer with the bizarre R"; his identity was revealed only by the research of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Impresso in grande carattere romano su 32 linee. In fine il colophon recita ''Eutropius historiographus Rome impressus/ Anno d[omi]ni. M. cccc. lxxi. die lune. xx. Mensis/ Mai Ponti. S. in [Christ]o pr[im]is ac d[omi]ni nostri domi[s]/ Pauli diuina p[re]uidentia Pape Secundi. Anno/ eius Septimo Explicit''. I primi 8 ff. comprendono la Tabula ed il Registro: gli indici sono due, uno sequenziale su 6 pagine ed uno alfabetico su 8 pagine. Si tratta di uno dei primissimi esempi di indice alfabetico nella storia della stampa. Il "Registrum Quinternorum" su 11 linee non riporta la parola iniziale dei quaderni, ma quella di ogni bifolio, quindi 52 incipit, mentre non sono menzionati i fogli corrispondenti. Editio Princeps del più fortunato compendio di storia romana, dalla fondazione della città fino alla morte di Gioviano; diviso in dieci libri, più che alla vicende interne dell'Urbe, si rivolge alla politica estera ed alle campagne di conquista. Eutropio visse nel IV secolo ed ebbe incarichi di estrema importanza a Costantinopoli, al servizio dell'imperatore Valente (364?378), di cui fu segretario e storico (magister memoriae) e su richiesta del quale scrisse questo testo. Nel 371/372 fu proconsole della provincia d'Asia e poi prefetto del pretorio dell'Illirico nel 380 - 381.

CYPRIANUS
Rome: Sweynheym and Pannartz, [Jan. or Feb.], 1471. EDITIO PRINCEPS. This is the first edition of the writings of Saint Cyprian, which fortuitously came to press because the prototypographers of Rome needed to fill a gap in their printing schedule and to avoid having their workshop sit unprofitably idle. According to Hall, the printers were at work on their Latin Bible when they ran out of the royal folio paper required. Desperate to keep the presses productive, they turned to their friend and editor Bussi, urgently requesting "a text suitable to a smaller format." Bussi searched through his impressive personal library and found a manuscript of Cyprianus he had copied from an ancient codex during his student days at the University of Paris. The editor said he "ran rather than walked through the book," rapidly readying it for publication. Aside from Gutenberg and his immediate associates, there are no figures more important in the early history of printing than Sweynheym and Pannartz, the earliest printers outside Germany. First at Subiaco and later in Rome, they produced an imposing catalogue of first editions of ancient authors, which for the first time systematically exploited the potential of the new printing technology as a means for disseminating humanistic texts to a large audience. From a wealthy and educated pagan background, Thascius Caecilius Cyprianus (ca. 200-58) was a lawyer, orator, and teacher who converted to Christianity as an adult and gave away his fortune to the poor. He was eventually made bishop of Carthage, the place of his birth, from which position … [Click Below for Full Description]
