CYRILLUS, pseudo-
Heinrich Eggestein, [Strassburg, 1474. First Edition. A fine copy on thick paper. Addressed to "my dearest son", THE MIRROR OF WISDOM IS ONE OF THE FIRST MEDIEVAL FABLE BOOKS TO BE PRINTED AND "THE FIRST AND ONLY FABLE COLLECTION OF THE MIDDLE AGES WITH AN EXPRESS MORAL PHILOSOPHY" (Stammler, tr.). Here we find some of the earliest fables independent of the Æsopic tradition to appear in print. Composed in the mid-14th century by Dominican Bonjohannes de Messina, the tales are organized into four books - on prudence, strength, justice and moderation. "The animals in these 'Fables' are not puppet-like factota acting out set pieces, but smart characters dispensing wisdom in well-chosen words" and through fateful actions (Grubmüller, tr.). The Speculum was printed across Europe in Latin and the vernacular. Its plots appeared in sermons, proverbs and story collections well into the 17th century. I have not traced a copy at auction in fifty years. Beautifully decorated, a few outer edges untrimmed (two inner margins with early reinforcement, a couple of smudges).

SCRIBONIUS LARGUS ( Jean RUEL ed.).
[9], [1 blank], 31, [5] ll.First edition, in the original Latin, of "the first actual dispensatory" (Schelenz), written in the Emperor Claudius's Rome in AD 47, prepared for publication by the French physician and botanist Jean Ruel (ca. 1474/79-1537). It describes the preparation and use of 271 drugs and other medicines and was a standard source for nearly all later dispensaries and pharmacopoeia far into the 17th century. It includes the first accurate description of the preparation of opium, the first known account of electro-shock therapy (using a torpedo fish, a kind of ray, as a source of electrical discharge to remedy headaches) and the therapeutic drinking of one's own blood.The colophon notes that it was published by Simon Du Bois in October 1528 and the tree device at the end may allude to his name. Du Bois and Ruel had apparently studied together but Du Bois came under fire as a heretic and had to flee Paris in 1529, moving to Alençon. With a couple long contemporary manuscript notes in brown ink. With some faint stains at the foot, reaching the text only in the first preliminary quire, and a couple very minor marginal defects, but otherwise in fine condition and with large margins (2-5.5 cm). Binding also fine.l Durling 910; Garrison & Morton 1785 & 1984.1; Schelenz, Geschichte der Pharmazie, pp. 165-166; D. J. Shaw, "New dates in the career of Simon Du Bois, ...", in: Yale University Gazette, 67 (1992), pp, 32-36; USTC 146032; Wellcome I, 5893.

[FACETIAE].
Rare collection of popular farcical texts, inspired by the Facetiae (1474) of the Italian humanist Poggio Bracciolini. Poggio wrote anti-clerical, bawdy and obscene stories, that enjoyed great popularity in the 16th century. He thereby showed that Latin was flexible enough to be written as a living language. His stories were soon imitated all over Europe. A collection of 12 titles, first published in 1600, was later placed on the Papal Index. The present collection, published by Augustin Ferber, increases the number of titles to 17. It mainly consists of mock medical dissertations and disputations and macaronic poetry about sex and drinking.Of particular interest are: Disputatio inauguralis, a mock disputation on the social law of drinking, with Bacchus as praeses and written by "Blasius Multibibus", a pseudonym often attributed to Richard Brathwait, who would translate this work into English in 1617 as A solemne joviall disputation, theoreticke and practicke; briefly shadowing the law of drinking; Delineatio summorum capitum lustitudinis studenticae, a burlesque and facetious macaronic Latin/German poem about students visiting brothels; and Discursus methodicus de peditu ejusque speciebus crepitus & visio (Methodical discourse on farting, and its species, sound and appearance), "this is the most elaborate case of intellectual in-joking on a scatological topic that I have so far found” (B.C. Bowen, "The 'honourable art of farting' in continental Renaissance literature", in: Fecal matters in early modern literature and art, 2017).With the bookplate of the neurologist Willem … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schleusinger, Eberhard (ca. 1430-1488)
Venice: Hans Aurl, 1474. FIRST DATED EDITION. Quarto: One of only two 15th c. editions. The priority of the editions is unresolved but this is generally considered the second (see below.) Bound in contemporary blind-ruled calf over thick wooden boards with small metal bosses. Lacking the single clasp but retaining the upper catch plate. The text is extremely fresh, with generous margins; the impression of the type is deep and clear. With manuscript waste guards inserted in the three quires. Extremely rare. 5 copies in North America (The Walters, LC, NYPL, Yale Medical, The Morgan.) The exceedingly rare first dated edition of one of the two earliest astronomical treatises on comets. This work is distinguished from the other by not only recording observations but also containing mathematical calculations to determine the size of the comet and its distance from the earth, making it the first printed book by a living author to employ pure science in the investigation of an observed natural phenomenon.On Christmas 1471, a huge comet appeared over Europe and remained clearly visible until March of the following year. The celestial object was observed by several humanist scholars, including Regiomontanus, and sparked interest not only in the usual fields of prophecy and prognostication, but also stimulated true scientific interest. This is one of only two contemporary accounts of the comet to appear in print. The other (ISTC ic00287600), by Angelo Catone Supinas of Benevento, was printed at Naples by Sixtus Riessinger, after 1 Mar. 1472.

In-4°; 128 cc.; 8 bordure ornamentali con motivi geometrici e floreali in corrispondenza dell'inizio delle varie opere e 10 disegni raffiguranti fiori, frutta ed elementi naturali entro riquadri, il tutto colorato a mano alla fine del Settecento. Legatura inglese in tutta pelle della seconda metà del '700, piatti con un'elaborata decorazione a secco (dorso rinnovato). Ex libris a stampa al contropiatto anteriore di G. Wentworth (1773-1834), membro del Parlamento inglese. Esemplare ad ampi margini. Prima edizione stampata a Milano degli Officia di Sant'Ambrogio e primo libro stampato da Valdarfer a Milano, dopo la sua partenza da Venezia. Qui il tipografo utilizzò per la prima volta il suo elegante carattere romano, derivato da quello usato da Giovanni da Colonia. Il volume contiene anche la prima edizione della prima biografia del Santo, scritta dal suo segretario Paolino da Milano ed erroneamente attribuita a Paolino da Nola. L'esemplare si caratterizza, come detto, per la presenza di una curiosa decorazione all'acquerello con bordure e vignette in corrispondenza dell'avvicendamento dei vari testi, eseguita nel XVIII secolo con motivi floreali, nature morte con fiori e frutta, paesaggi e architetture di campagna.

ANTONINUS OF FLORENCE, Saint.

Folio, ff. 366; printed in gothic type in double columns of 52 lines, 4- to 7-line initials in red or blue, red and blue paragraph marks, first leaf with a contemporary illuminated initial, framing and decoration with a blank roundel at foot, manuscript quire signatures; a superb, very wide-margined and crisp copy in contemporary Italian blind-stamped calf over wooden boards, four clasps; some surface wear, straps missing; very faint remains of an inscription at the foot of the first leaf, contemporary manuscript annotations in the margins in a single scholarly hand, contemporary manuscript list of contents on front free end-paper; exlibris William O'Brien, with book label on the front paste-down.First edition; a large, crisp copy of a rare and important incunable. This was the first appearance of any part of Antoninus's Summa theologica, or Summa moralis, an ambitious work in four parts exploring the entire field of moral theology; this, the Secunda, is the part which deals with the seven cardinal vices and related matters, including simony, lawful and unlawful acquisition, restitution: it is therefore the part which includes most references to what would later become a discipline in its own right, economics.A much-loved and respected bishop of Florence, close but not subservient to the Medici court, well acquainted with the dynamic developments of the mercantile society in which he lived, Antoninus finished writing this pastoral manual in 1459, shortly before he died; the complete set was first p … [Click Below for Full Description]

By Gregory the Great, translated from the Latin into Italian by Zanobi da Strada
Northeastern Italy, Veneto (Venice?), dated 1474. MEDIEVAL ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT IN ITALIAN ON PAPER, Northeastern Italy, Veneto (Venice?), c. 1474. Dimensions 328-332 x 230 mm., 188 folios, missing at least three leaves, written in brown ink in an Italian cursiva libraria script, EIGHT ILLUMINATED INITIALS of seven lines, one-line paraphs in red or blue , simple two- to four-line in red or blue initials. BINDING: re-cased using original binding materials of brown half leather over bevelled wooden boards with three double bands, remains of four straps present. TEXT: Italian translation of Gregory the Great's Moralia in Job , one of the most important and widely copied texts of the Middle Ages. Though forty copies of this translation survive, this volume is unusual in its incorporation of Venetian dialectal forms. All other copies are in European institutions and have not been on the market for the last century. PROVENANCE: scribal colophon on f. 190v provides a date for this manuscript's completion and helps localize its production within Italy: "Scripto per mi zuane de zane zoielier condam p[er?] simon et chi li lezeranno priegi dio per lo scriptore. MCCCCLXXIIII" (Written by me, Zuane de Zane, jeweler, once for (?) Simon, and may whoever will read it pray to God for the writer. 1474). There is no Zuane de Zane on record elsewhere as a scribe; the name itself is Venetian, and evidence of the manuscript's watermark and decoration also suggest an origin in the region of Veneto and possibly Venice specifically. The manuscript was later acquired by a private European collecti … [Click Below for Full Description]

With the bookplate of Robert Crewe-Milnes, 1st Marquess of Crewe (1858-1945), possibly by inheritance from his father Richard Monckton Milnes, 1st Baron Houghton; from the family library removed from West Horsley Place, Surrey.

In the preface Boccaccio talks directly to his imagined female audience, "by emulating the deeds of ancient women, you spur your spirit to loftier things... call on the powers of your intellect, in which you excel, and do not … [Click Below for Full Description]

Albertus Magnus (pseudo-)
Michael Wenssler not after, 1474. ff. 190 including the the final blank, 34 lines, Gothic type, chapter initials, paragraph marks and initial-strokes in red, minor spotting and damp-staining occasionally turning a whole leaf mildly brown, a few of the initials run or through-set, folio (in 10s), 19th century marbled boards, rebacked in modern calf, spine slightly faded, bookplate of the Law Society, good. Third edition of an anonymous thirteenth-century scholastic treatise on the Virgin Mary, attributed in the early editions and most manuscripts to Albertus Magnus. Editions printed by Ulrich Zel in Cologne and Johann Mentelin in Strassburg are both not after 1473. Probably a duplicate from the Munich Royal Library, with "Dpl" in pencil on verso of old flyleaf and "Nro. 1464" at head of first leaf. Above 'Dpl' is a pencil note by a 19th-century librarian giving the date as between 1476 and 1486, but the matter was settled by a rubricator's date of 1474 in the Buxheim copy - BMC (Ms note). The last 2 pages of quire [l] are shorter than the rest of the book, making it probable that it was set up on 2 presses. This text, known for short as Mariale (and so titled here on the spine), is the first systematic attempt at a theology of Mary, and includes chapters on metaphysics, on the quadrivium (music, astronomy, arithmetic, and geometry), hair colour, anatomical proportion, physics, medicine, and other aspects of the physical world. On the authorship, see A. Fries, Die unter dem Namen des Albertus Magnus überlieferten mariologischen Schriften (1954) pp.5-80, 130-131, and A. Kolpin … [Click Below for Full Description]

LACTANTIUS, LUCIUS CAECILIUS FIRMIANUS
Rome: Ulrich Han and Simon Chardella, 12 February 1474. From one of the first printers in Rome comes this collection of works by a teacher of rhetoric with an elegant flow of words (whence perhaps his name, which translates as "Milky," derives) who converted late in life to Christianity and became one of the ablest defenders of the faith in its early centuries. Lactantius (ca. 260-340) was much admired in the Renaissance for his style, and he was one of the earliest authors to be printed, first appearing in a 1465 edition issued by Sweynheym and Pannartz. The text here includes "Divine Institutions," which draws on the arguments of Stoic philosophy to present Christianity to educated pagans as the most logical, rational faith; "De Ira Dei," on the anger of God, a refutation of Epicureanism; "De Opificio Dei," on the handiwork of God, concentrating on the marvels of the human body and soul; and several poems by or attributed to Lactantius. A native of Ingolstadt, Ulrich Han was invited to Rome by Cardinal G. Torquemada (ca. 1420-98), and his first dated work appeared there at the end of 1467. Hawkins thinks it probable he was already working in Rome before Sweynham and Pannartz arrived from Subiaco. His roman typeface has a simplicity and grace that reflect the humanist sensibilities of his time and place. Han was a busy printer, producing between 80 and 100 works before his death in late 1478 or early 1479.. 332 x 232 mm. (13 x 9 1/8"). [258] unnumbered leaves; first and last blanks lacking; blank b3 replaced with later paper. Single column, 37 lines, roman type.Edited by … [Click Below for Full Description]

1474. Roman letter, occasional use of Greek (e10verso quotations). Folio (285 x 205mm.) 164 leaves (last blank), 34 lines. Later Italian vellum, ms on spine, wide margins (gaping at spine, text occasionally somewhat stained and soiled). Venice: Johann de Colonia & Johannes Manthen, 1474. Annotated copy with underlining various layers of annotations ranging from simple glosses in first few leaves written in a large, coarse hand to marginal highlighting of words or persons mentioned in the text, and (in a small hand) marginal references to Cicero (e.g. r5verso on Phalaris), Aulus Gellius, and Petrarch (s8verso). The book has evidently been carefully read by at least one intelligent reader. On the first free end paper are a number of jottings in various hands in Latin and Italian (one seemingly related to a hen): 'O fides alma: apta pinnis. [et] iusiurandum Iovis' (Ennius fr.184 quoted by Cicero De officiiis iii, 104); 'Proximus a libero patre intemperantiae gradus ad inconcessam venerem esse consuevit', a passage from Valerius Maximus about the avoidance by women of wine; 'Quicquid in excelso fastigio locatum est humili et trita consuetudine quo sit uenerabilius vacuum esse convenit' (Valerius Maximus ii.6.17); 'Analecta dicuntur reliquiae quae sunt sub mensa' ( allusion to Martial vii. 20.17) ; 'Cur nescire pudens praue quam discere malo' (Horace AP. 89 -'Why through false shame do I prefer to be ignorant rather than to learn?'). There is also a reference to Pliny's Natural History book 33 and a story about Aelius Tubero. Some leaves working loose, very light worming, consis … [Click Below for Full Description]
