SÁNCHEZ DE ARÉVALO, Rodrigo (Rodericus SANCIUS or ZAMORENSIS).
Speculum vit[a]e human[a]e. Rome, Joannes Philippus de Lignamine, 31 July 1473. Small folio (26.5 x 20 cm). With spaces left for 2 large (6-line) and about 80 small (3-line) initials. Text block 19.5 x 11.5 mm with 31 lines per page. Set in a single roman type throughout (Lignamine 125R). Limp sheepskin parchment (ca. 1740/50). [163] ll. Second Rome edition, published in 1473, of a popular philosophical, moral and practical work by Rodrigo Sánchez de Arévalo, bishop of Zamora (1404-1470). Known in English as the Mirror of human life, it is divided into two "books", the first (30 numbered chapters) devoted to secular life and the second (43 numbered chapters) to spiritual life, each dealing with various stages in human development. It discusses the benefits, responsibilities and dangers of various trades and professions, and was intended to help people choose a vocation. This makes it a valuable source for information about numerous occupations in a wide range of social strata. Lignamine's roman type used for the entire book first appeared in a book with colophon dated 3 August 1470 (ISTC iq00024000), making it one of the very earliest roman types, and it deserves more attention than it has received. Olocco convincingly argues that the earliest truly roman types were based on a style of humanistic manuscript hand that evolved in Padua, where Andrea Mantegna revived classical roman inscriptions in his frescos in the 1450s and where manuscripts took inspiration from classical Roman inscriptions for their capitals and adapted the serif structure of the lowercase to them.

Firenze Lorenzo Torrentino 1549 In 8vo (cm 14,5); legatura del XVIII secolo in mezza pelle con fregi e titolo in oro al dorso, taglio rosso; pp. 320. Carattere corsivo latino e greco. Lievi fioriture, margine superiore un po' corto, minimi aloni marginali, insignificante strappetto all'ultima carta senza danno al testo, ma nel complesso ottima copia.RARA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE pubblicata postuma per le cure del figlio dell'autore Giovanni Dazzi e da questi dedicata a Cosimo de' Medici. A pagina 5 segue un'altra dedica di Andrea Dazzi a Pietro Soderini. La raccolta si apre con numerosi epigrammi ed elegie: in quei versi nei quali egli canta il suo amore per una certa Fulvia si comprende come il Dazzi "seppe contemperare lo studio dei classici con quello dei poeti volgari e soprattutto del Petrarca" (G. Bottiglioni, La lirica latina in Firenze nella seconda metà del secolo XV, Pisa, 1913, p. 140 e inoltre pp. 136-144). Seguono otto selve in esametri, ciascuna dedicata ad un argomento diverso: lodi adulatorie, notizie autobiografiche, scene di vita contemporanea, ecc. Chiudono la raccolta il poemetto eroicomico in tre libri Aeluromyomachia, scritto in età giovanile, qui pubblicato da M. Serafini e da questi dedicato a P. Cattani da Diacceto, e un'orazione latina in lode delle lettere greche. Dall'esame dei componimenti emergono le fitte relazioni che il Dazzi intratteneva con i personaggi più importanti del tempo, tra i quali ricordiamo J. Naldi, P. Crinito, G. Rucellai, L. Albizzi, L.

Lignamine's type is also set with considerable sophistication (already in its earliest uses), with special characters for abbreviations and with T and V kerned to avoid white gaps in combinations like "To" (without overdoing it), something Jenson appears to have tried only in 1471 and quickly abandoned.

Gregorius IX
(Mainz: Peter Schoeffer, 1473). Single leaf. Gregory IX's Decretales completed the work of the Decretum of Gratian to systematize the mass of pronouncements issued throughout the Early Middle Ages. In his Decretales, first produced in 1234, Gregory IX paid particular attention to the doctrine of perpetual servitude of the Jews. This leaf, identified as leaf 65 of Schoeffer's edition, discusses this very subject, including how one might know that a person is Jewish, and the rationale for relegating the Jews to second-class citizens. The leaf is printed on paper in black ink, with markings in red and blue. Eleven two-line initials also in red and blue. Minimal soiled to outer edges of margins, else fine. (BSB-Ink G332, GW 11451).

1473. "Sermones Quadragesimales de Poenitentia." Which translated from Latin means: "Sermons for Lenten Penance." Or "Sermons for Penance During Lent" or something like that.

AUTHOR BIO INFO: Roberto Caracciolo (also known as Robertus Caracciolus) de Lecce (1425-1495) Caracciolo~128050 was Franciscan and, from 1475 until his death, Bishop of Aquino. He was one of the greatest preachers of his time and one of the first living authors whose works became popular during the development of the letterpress printings. (commonly called Robert de Liccio; from the city of Lecce, in the kingdom of Naples, where he was born, in 1425), while very young, embraced the religious life among the Observantines of St. Francis, but, :finding this rule too severe, entered the Conventuals. He became so celebrated as a preacher that he was called the second St. Paul. He was made bishop of Aquino in 1471, and pope Sixtus IV nominated him to the see of Lecce; but he died at Aquino, May 6,1495, the investiture not having been effected.

CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) [Venice]: Bartholomaeus Cremonensis, [not after July] 1473. A very large, crisp copy of the best known Confessionale of Antoninus, Archbishop of Florence. It discusses the powers of the confessor, the seven deadly sins (book 2, section 2), the manner of interrogating people of different social and professional status (including butchers, bakers, musicians, jewellers, physicians and pharmacists, book 2, section 3) , together with absolution and imposition of penance. Antoninus the Dominican Archbishop of Florence (1389-1459) wrote three Confessionalia which are distinguished by their incipits, one (GW 2075-2079 ) 'Curam illius habe' which is in Italian and sometimes known as 'Medicina dell'anima', and 'Omnis mortalium cura' or 'Specchio di coscienza', again in Italian, to which various other texts are appended (GW 2152-2176).The third 'Defecerunt scrutantes scrutinio ' (GW 2080-2151) is by far the most printed and is known not only in Latin, almost forty editions having the 'Titulus de restitutionibus', and some twenty having the Latin translation of St. John Chrysostom's sermon on penance. This Confessionale was translated into Italian, and Spanish, there being several editions printed in Seville, Burgos, Zaragoza, and Salamanca.

[Medieval Manuscript; Land Transfers]
Notary, Martinez de la Cuesta, from San Martin de Valdeiglesias. Cortesana Script, Spain, 1473. Bound in 16th/17th century parchment 1, 12, 1. No watermarks. Extremely well preserved, excellent condition. The year 1492 not only marked the voyage of Christopher Columbus to America, but simultaneously the forced departure of the Jews from Spain. With the disappearance of The Golden Age, during which Jews flourished under Moslem ruse, came the Inquisition and subsequent rise of anti-Jewish measure, including the confiscation of Jewish lands, forced conversion to Christianity, and ultimate expulsion. This manuscript contains two documents. The first addresses the request for an exchange of land by John of Ortega, prior of St. Bartholomew of Escalona, asking the monastery of St. Gerome to give the piece of land called "Santa Marina" (property of the monastery of St. Gerome and located in the village of Cardahal) as permanent ground rent to Juan Alfonso (son of Alfonso Sanchez, winekeeper) and his wife, Mayor Rodriguez. The prior and brother of the monastery of St. Gerome decide to grant John of Ortega's request in this letter dated April 17, 1473. In exchange, the previous owners of this land (Gonzalez Bruno, his wife, and son) are to be given a parcel of land located in the Dehesa de la Mata (Plateau of la Mata), near a river called Tortolas (Turtledoves). The second document, dated October 1473 grants the exchange to Pedro Gonzalez and his family, who are to pay rent in the form of quinces, olives, and fish-catch from the River Turtledoves.

PETRARCA, FRANCESCO
[Strassburg: The R-printer (Adolf Rusch), not after 1473]. FIRST EDITION. This is the first printing of Petrarch's autobiographical essay defending the solitary life, originally composed between 1346 and 1356. The ideal life, in Petrarch's view, was one spent in study and contemplation in a place of tranquility, far from the distractions of urban life. His treatise is considered the earliest example of psychological introspection in Western literature, and it gives the modern reader insight into the attitude and priorities of a humanist in the Renaissance. In addition to being a poet and a scholar, Petrarch (1304-74) was an ardent bibliophile, and one of the first known book collectors. The anonymous printer here is defined by the distinctive capital "R" in this typeface and has long been identified as Adolf Rusch of Strassburg, an apprentice for Johann Mentelin, the first printer in that city. Rusch married Mentelin's daughter Salome, and printed books for his own shop and for his father-in-law, before succeeding to Mentelin's press in 1477. He later gave up printing for dealing in paper. The typeface here was the first roman font to be used outside of Italy. While the present volume is entirely complete in itself, "Vita Solitaria" has more than once appeared in the marketplace bound with "Secretum de Contemptu Mundi," a related work by Petrarch published by Rusch at about the same time. ABPC records no separate copies of "Vita" at auction since at least 1975, while RBH finds four separate copies, all sold in the 1930s, one of them the present copy (at Anderson Galleries … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ulrich Zel not after 1473], [Cologne - 305 x 220 mm. (12 x 8 1/2"). [296] leaves (of 298, lacking blank leaves 19 and 298).Edited by Philippus de Bronnerde. FIRST EDITION. Excellent recent retrospective calf, with numerous blind rules and blind-stamps in the style of the period, convincing replica clasps. Paragraph marks in red, capitals struck with red, numerous three-line initials in red or blue, 21 six-line puzzle initials with penwork elaboration in light brown and, sometimes, green, two of these with extensions running the length of the column to form a bar border. Goff J-258; BMC I, 192. First leaf a bit soiled, with fore-edge margin reinforced on verso, final leaf with three-inch square (of blank space) at lower fore-edge corner replaced (to remove inscription?), a little dust soiling to head edge, one page with printing error causing loss to a couple of words, occasional small stains, smudges, short tears, or trivial worming to margins, but an excellent copy despite minor defects, the text very clean and fresh, with ample margins, in an unworn retrospective binding. This compendium of civil and canon law by an English Dominican friar was one of the earliest printed books to be indexed and cross-referenced, facilitating its use by preachers looking for sermon material. John Bromyard (d. ca. 1352) spent his career at a Dominican priory in Hereford, where, according to DNB, he "had a marked influence on homiletic literature in the later middle ages" by writing numerous handbooks for preachers, among them the present work, the first of his writings to appear in print.

[Cologne: Ulrich Zel, not after 1473]. FIRST EDITION. This compendium of civil and canon law by an English Dominican friar was one of the earliest printed books to be indexed and cross-referenced, facilitating its use by preachers looking for sermon material. John Bromyard (d. ca. 1352) spent his career at a Dominican priory in Hereford, where, according to DNB, he "had a marked influence on homiletic literature in the later middle ages" by writing numerous handbooks for preachers, among them the present work, the first of his writings to appear in print. His aim was "to displace frivolous material such as animal lore and exotic stories from the pulpit, and replace it with the solid moral doctrine of canon law." The work is today perhaps of more interest for its organization than for its sermonizing. Bromyard employed then-revolutionary techniques, including an alphabetical index, standardized divisions of the text, and cross-references, all important milestones in the history of information organization. Ulrich Zel (fl. 1466-1507) was the first printer in Cologne, where his initial dated book was issued in 1466. His was a very substantial output, including approximately 180 works, all in Latin and generally characterized by conservative typography and design. He is perhaps better known in printing history for his contributions to the anonymous "Cologne Chronicle" (1499), in which his testimony supports both Gutenberg and (more controversially) Laurens Janszoon Coster of Haarlem as the person responsible for the origin of printing in the West.

We offer a woodcut book illustration by the German artist Hans Burgkmair the Elder. The image is 3 3/4" x 6", printed on handmade laid paper that is 7 1/2" x 7", with text on recto and verso. Hinged on left side margin verso to a backing paper which has several pencil notations. Die Berufsahl, or the Career Choice, depicts a robed man surrounded by crests containing images of tools and animals. Behind him a weary frau stands with a large book on her head and under her arm. The print lacks any monogram or signature. The scholar Georg Hirth indicated this is quite common for the artist. Hans Burgkmair the Elder (1473–1531) was a German painter and woodcut printmaker. He was an important innovator of the chiaroscuro woodcut, and seems to have been the first to use a tone block, in a print from 1508. Condition: There is a small 3/4" tear at upper left margin away from the image, top of the leaf has been cut (not affecting woodcut), full margins on the sides and bottom, very good.
