Bulino, 1475-1500 circa, privo di data e di iscrizioni. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Rarissima incisione anonima è ascrivibile alla scuola tedesca dell'ultimo quarto del XV secolo La scena raffigura la cosiddetta Messa di S. Gregorio, in cui il Cristo, con gli strumenti della passione, appare sull'altare al papa celebrante. L'immagine divenne molto popolare nel corso del XVI secolo, anche perché spesso associata alle indulgenze. In effetti, agli inizi del secolo, nel Nord Europa, la Messa di S. Gregorio, anzi le 30 messe gregoriane, ricorrono di frequente nei manoscritti tra le pratiche per ottenere l'indulgenza; a partire dal 1425 circa, le indulgenze sono spesso incorporate in stampe o altre opere che raffigurano la Messa di S. Gregorio. Esemplare dalla collezione del British Museum, due timbri al verso, compreso quello di dismissione. (Lugt 302 & 305). Engraving, 1475-1500 circa, unlettered. A very good example, printed on contemporary lad paper, with small margins, perfect condition. The scene depicts the Mass of Saint Gregory. This subject became widespread in medieval art. Such visual manifestations have a variety of precise forms, but they almost always show Gregory and his entourage, usually consisting of clerics, in a church before an altar, often with the saint saying mass. Christ as a Man of Sorrows appears on the altar. Because the St. Gregory Mass shows a bleeding Christ and the celebration of the mass, the image has been used as support for the idea of transubstantiation.

Holy Land] Suchen, Ludolphus de [Sudheim, Ludolf].
1475. One of the earliest travel books ever printed; and the first pilgrimage account to the Holy Land printed. S.d. [c.1475-80]. S.l. [Strassburg]. [Heinrich Eggestyn, i.e. Eggestein]. Folio, (255 x 180 mm). 34 ff. Recent vellum-backed boards, lettering piece on spine, tooled in gilt. Overall a clean copy, initials in red rubricated in red, trimmed somewhat close at the outer margin, occasionally affecting marginal manuscript notes, away from text, unobtrusive stain to a few ff., fore-edge tinted red, else very good; semi-Gothic type, 40-42 lines per page. 125,000 $ First edition, one of two issues; this incunable, printed between 1475 and 1480, is the first printed account of a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. It is also perhaps the first ever printed travel book and is ranked alongside the Travels of Marco Polo and the Travels of John Mandeville, both with earliest known printed editions in 1477, as the most important of travel accounts. Ludolf s vivid descriptions of the various monuments and shrines of Christianity and Islam and of life among the people make this a gripping book that even modern readers might enjoy. Ludolf was obviously widely read in his own time, since some fifty Latin manuscripts of his work survive Still, scholars regard this as the most valuable fourteenth-century European account of the Holy Land and an important source for geographical knowledge during the Middle Ages (John Block Friedman and Kristen Mossler Figg, eds, Trade, Travel and Exploration in the Middle Ages: An encyclopedia, Abingdon and New York: Routledge, 2000, p. 347).

Andalus de Nigro
Ferrara Johann Picardus, de Hamell 8 July 1475. Small folio (281x218 mm). Collation: [1-210]. 19 of [20] leaves, lacking the last blank leaf. Text in one column, 40 lines. Type: 1:101G. The first page decorated with a five line vinestem initial 'S', illuminated in red and blue on a silver background with extension in half of the margin; sixty-nine three-line initials alternately in red or blue, rubricated throughout. Eighteenth-century speckled boards, possibly recased. A tall copy, still attractive in spite of a waterstain in the lower right corner, heavier on the last quire, not affecting the text apart from the last two leaves. On fol. [2]/8v one initial was lost and a few words of lines of text retouched in ink. A portion of the right side of the last leaf was missing and skilfully laid on an ancient leaf; along the right side some words of twenty-one lines neatly supplied in brown ink. Some other waterstains or spots, old repairs to the penultimate leaf.One of the earliest printed astronomical texts, and one of the rarest scientific incunables to have appeared in Ferrara: the first and only edition of the Opus astrolabii, here exceptionally presented in the unique copy known with an illuminated initial. Only ten copies of this Ferrarese edition – a landmark in the history of astronomy, especially in the theorica planetarum – are recorded among the institutional libraries (four in Italy and two in the United States). The famous astronomer and traveller from Genoa Andalo de Nigro succeeded Cecco d'Ascoli to the chair in Florence, and, in about 1330, became th … [Click Below for Full Description]

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN, WITH A MINIATURE OF THE PRESENTATION IN THE TEMPLE
France [probably Rouen]: , ca. 1475. France [probably Rouen], ca. 1475. This beautifully rendered miniature can be attributed to the workshop of the Master of Robert Gaguin, and, in any case, it is full of charm. In our painting, the high priest Simeon holds the Christ Child on a long altar while the Virgin kneels before them in prayer. A handmaiden stands behind her, carrying a basket of turtledoves as a sacrificial offering. Although Christ often appears frightened in these scenes, He is here depicted as quite serene, reaching back toward His mother in a gesture that suggests both reverence and the closeness of their bond. Named for his work on an exquisite copy of Robert Gaguin's translation of "De Bello Gallico" presented to King Charles VIII, our eponymous artist is known for large historical works and occasionally Books of Hours made for members of the French royal circle. His style is close to that of the Master of Jacques of Besançon, although, as Avril and Reynaud note, the illuminations of the Master of Robert Gaguin tend to be more modern in appearance and less dependent on tradition. He was known to have collaborated with other prominent illuminators of the day and also worked with the publisher Antoine Vérard on illuminating special copies of printed editions for the wealthy elite.. 152 x 110 mm. (6 x 4 1/2"). Verso with 19 lines of text in a fine batarde hand. Matted. Rubrics in blue, line enders, six one-line initials in gold on blue or red ground, one two-line and one three-line initial in white scroll-work on gold ground and embellished with … [Click Below for Full Description]

It is also the FIRST BOOK from the press of Anton Sorg, the celebrated Augsburg printer (see NDB 24, p.598). Between 1466 and 1476 Sorg, like many early incunabula printers, practiced the profession of a letter and card painter. Before founding his own printing workshop in Augsburg in 1475, he worked in the office of the St. Ulrich and Afra Monastery, whose abbot Melchior von Stainhaim had decisively promoted the new technology. The first of his approximately 240 prints (Augustine, "Quinquaginta") is dated to 1.2.1475, the last (Thomas von Kempen, "Succession of Christ") appe … [Click Below for Full Description]

BEDA VENERABILIS (The Venerable BEDE).
Adams B452; Belg. Typ. 277; Index Aureliensis 115.647; USTC 400809 (erroneous collation). Second and most important edition, in the original Latin, of the greatest work by the father of English history, the Venerable Bede (672/73-735 AD), his Ecclesiastical history of the English people, completed ca. 731 AD. It begins with the Roman invasion of England in 55 BC and covers the introduction of Christianity to England and the entire history of England up to Bede's own day. Although nominally a religious history it remains the most important source for English history in general for its period. Few works have ever dominated a subject as much as Bede's history, which established the notion of English history, served as the most important source for his period for nearly every writer who followed, and remains today an essential primary source for any history of England before 735. This work even largely established today's practice of dating events from the birth of Christ and the use of the term 'anno domini' (AD). Although first published in or shortly before 1475, the poor quality of the text in that first edition (even lacking the last part of book V) ensured that the present edition served as the principal source. Both Catholics and Protestants turned to Bede's history for information and inspiration, so it is interesting to find it here in a ca. 1550 binding with Reformation iconography. This edition is also an impressive example of Renaissance typography in Antwerp, five years before Plantin set up his printing office. Lacking the blank leaf A4.

1475. LES HEURES (Book of Hours) It's time to let this gem go from my collection to make room for some recent acquisitions. This was the first of many Book of Hours that I've collected over the years. It has a wonderful personality about it, you can literally feel the love and devotion exude from it's vellum pages as you contemplate on the adoration and worship from it's many owners over the ages. A true piece of religious and art history. Original illuminated manuscript with 135 leaves hand-lettered on vellum--appears to be complete. Published in France circa late 15th century. Most of the text is in Latin, but the prayers are in French.

PLATINA (Bartolomeo Sacchi da Piadena)
Venetiis, 1475. Venetiis,, 1475.. In-8 gr. (mm. 271x183), mz. pelle settecentesca (abras. alle cerniere), filetti e tit. oro su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi, 93 cc.nn. (manca l'ultima bianca). Al verso della IV carta “Viri doctissimi Patynae opusculum de obsoniis ac honesta voluptate: impressum Venetiis Duce iclyto Petro Mocenico. Idibus Iuniis Mcccclxxv”. Esiste una variante con il nome dello stampatore: “impressum Venetiis labore & diligentia Laurentii presbyteri d Aquila : nec no Sibyllini Umbri Duce inclyto Petro Mocenico. Idibus Iuniis Mcccclxxv” (Così Hain,13051). "Prima edizione datata del primo libro a stampa di pratica culinaria.". “Il punto di partenza di Platina sono le ricette raccolte da Maestro Martino, cuoco del Patriarca di Aquileia. Benchè chiaramente copiate, Platina le reinterpretò in chiave umanistica e classica. Questo non fu un plagio, così tipico ieri come oggi nei libri di ricette, ma una dichiarata rielaborazione letteraria volta a dimostrare come un modesto soggetto possa essere nobilitato. Prendendo spunto da Catone, Varrone, Columella e Celio Apicio, Platina cercò di fornire a un pubblico elitario un compendio di dietetica e civiltà della tavola. Inizia con consigli generali per una sana vita quotidiana, su come selezionare il proprio cuoco e come determinare una vita equilibrata. Dal sedicesimo capitolo prende avvio una lunga lista di ingredienti e di preparazioni che occupano la maggior parte del testo. Enormemente popolare l'opera ebbe molte edizioni, oltre 50 sicuramente, in latino, italiano, tedesco e francese”. Così Benporat “S … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOOK OF HOURS (USE OF CAMBRAI)
1475. PAINTED IN SOFT SHADES OF SEMI-GRISAILLE FROM THE WORKSHOP OF THE "PRINCE OF ILLUMINATION". Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in Latin and French, France, Valenciennes, c. 1475-1480. Dimensions 158 x 110 mm. 84 ff., lacking an undetermined number of leaves rendering collation impossible, written in dark brown ink in BÂTARDE SCRIPT, ONE LARGE MINIATURE with FULL-PAGE BORDER and 14 SMALL MINIATURES by the workshop of SIMON MARMION. BINDING: Nineteenth-century French red morocco, gilt-blocked to a cathedral style, gilt spine, gilt edges, marbled endleaves, slight wear to joints and corners. ILLUSTRATION: This interesting and beautiful made-to-order Book of Hours, destined for a patron living in the western, French-speaking diocese of Cambrai, offers an excellent witness to the functioning of the atelier of the painter-illuminator Simon Marmion, both in its cycle of illustrations and in its marginal decoration. This manuscript is remarkable for its delicate painting executed in soft, pastel tones, known as "semi-grisaille," a technique Marmion perfected. The vignettes of text are framed by a gold filet and ornamented with plump, thick acanthus, whose numerous knobby stems with bare roots are of azure and bronze. PROVENANCE: The style shows that the manuscript was painted in the later 1470s in the workshop of Simon Marmion who was active in Valenciennes from 1458 until his death in 1489. It was then in a private collection in the United States. CONDITION: minor rubbing to a few miniatures and borders, around ten leaves remargined in gutter, some discreet modifications … [Click Below for Full Description]

[a-d10], wanting the first and final blanks (as common) and leaves [a]5-6, missing text supplied in near-contemporary manuscript (but omitting initials). 38 lines, 2 columns, 3- and 4-line Lombardic initials supplied in red, red initial strokes and paraphs. 19th century unsophisticated boards. One of the earliest editions of Vegetius's famous military manual. The book gives an account of the Roman military institutions, organization and science, and includes a discussion of naval warfare. Writing under Emperor Theodosius the Great around 400 AD, Vegetius aimed to counter what he perceived as a progressive decay of the Roman military strength. "The printing of this edition is not clean and somewhat rough in general. Exceedingly rare" (cf. Schweiger). Ebert and Schweiger both date this to "between 1474 and 1478". - Annotated throughout in a contemporary hand. The two missing leaves of text have been supplied in different handwriting, no later than the early sixteenth century (watermark of inserted leaves: couronne à diadème, 138 mm high, not identified but similar to Briquet 4900ff., 4950ff., Piccard I.VI, 27-29: various locations, but mainly 1490s to 1520s).

Folio (242 x 340 mm). Latin manuscript on paper. 160 leaves (complete including four blank leaves at the beginning and six at the end). Written in brown ink in a neat humanistic hand, double columns, 37 lines to each page, numerous two and three line initials supplied in red or blue. With one large illuminated initial and coat of arms of the Scalamonte family flanked by floral decoration on first leaf, painted in shades of blue, green and lilac and heightened in burnished gold. With altogether 231 full-page tables in red and brown, some marginal or inter-columnar annotations, and one extended annotation on final leaf. Fifteenth century blind stamped goat skin over wooden boards, remains of clasps. The so-called Toledan Tables are astronomical tables used to predict the movements of the Sun, Moon and planets relative to the fixed stars. They were completed around the year 1080 at Toledo by a group of Arab astronomers, led by the mathematician and astronomer Al-Zarqali (known to the Western World as Arzachel), and were first updated in the 1270s, afterwards to be referred to as the "Alfonsine Tables of Toledo". Named after their sponsor King Alfonso X, it "is not surprising that" these tables "originated in Castile because Christians in the 13th century had easiest access there to the Arabic scientific material that had reached its highest scientific level in Muslim Spain or al-Andalus in the 11th century" (Goldstein 2003, 1). The Toledan Tables were undoubtedly the most widely used astronomical tables in medieval Latin astronomy, but it was Giovanni Bianchini whose rigorous … [Click Below for Full Description]

A fine copy of the first Bible printed by Koberger, containing the complete text of the Bible, the first of several editions that he would publish in his lifetime; it follows the text of the Gutenberg Bible. Koberger could be said to be the first Bible-printer, having printed over 20 editions before 1513, no other printer can claim that in the incunabular period. Koberger (c. 1440 - 1513) started his printing career in 1470, the same year the printing press was introduced in Nuremberg; he rose to become arguably the most important printer of Nuremberg, and almost unrivalled by his contemporaries in other cities. Koberger was one of the most successful printing entrepreneurs of the first period of the printing history, known mostly for his Bibles -both in Latin and German- and Schedel's Liber Chronicarum or Nuremberg Chronicle. His business employed printers, typesetters, illuminators, and on occasions illustrators such as Durer. Later editions of the Bible published by Koberger contained preliminary or supplementary material, this, being his first edition in Latin, contains the text of the Bible in its entirety and pure form. Provenance: armorial bookplate on front pastedown of rJohn Cottrell Powell (1798-1834); Ampleforth Abbey Library, armorial bookplate on front pastedown. HC 3056. GW 4218. BMC ii 413. Goff B543.
