[Medieval illuminated initial]
Italy, Lombardy, ca. 1475-1486. Parchment leaf from an antiphonary; 500 x 350 mm illuminated with a historiated initial 'S' (150 x 160 mm) on burnished golden ground. Written in an Italian Littera Rotunda, square musical notation on four-line bars with the lower line of each tetragram highlighted in red; elaborately decorated full border with tendriled foliage and flowers, incorporating some drolleries and medallions representing saints. One smaller illuminated 1-line initial 'B' on the lowest line, painted in mauve, red, blue and green on a square golden ground (770 x 570 mm). All headed by six lines of rubricated text. Trimmed to the edge of the decorated border, colours of the decorated floral border partly rubbed or flaked off, burnished gold of the initial square ground partly rubbed off and a bit tarnished. A few small retouches to the blue sky in the background of the initial. St John and King David in the borders a bit rubbed, letters of the text written in brown ink slightly faded.

Anonimo
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.

PETRUS LOMBARDUS Bishop of Paris
1475-76. Large opening initial in red with penwork decoration, other initials red, rubricated throughout. Chancery folio (315 x 224mm). 415 leaves, with the first blank, text within surrounding commentary. Contemporary blindstamped pigskin over thick wooden boards (EBDB Buxheim Hauptwerkstatt w004307 or Blatt-Palmette w002989) incorporating the large stamp Christ as Man of Sorrows standing in a tomb (Schwenke-Sammlung Christus 27), other stamps include a ?Maria? banderole, rosettes and an acorn, clasps decorated with ?Maria?, manuscript titles to spine and bottom edge, paper spine label with shelfmark (a few faint marks and small wormholes), early 12th century liturgical manuscript fragments, with music, used as binder?s waste. First edition of Peter Lombard?s commentaries on the psalms from the library of the Buxheim Charterhouse. A large, crisp copy extensively rubricated throughout, with initials of various sizes, capital strokes, underlining and occasional marginalia. Headlines also denote the psalm number for when each psalm was to be used in the Divine Office, whether weekday or Sunday, and sometimes the canonical hour, i.e. vespers (morning) or lauds (evening). As Marcia Colish states, ?Among the scholastic exegetes of Psalms in the first half of the twelfth century, Peter Lombard (1096-1160) holds pride of place. To be sure, his commentary on the Psalms is his earliest known work, having been completed before 1138. And it is a work which he did not, apparently, compose as a teaching text. Yet the Lombard's commentary on the Psalms ranks as the most frequently cited, … [Click Below for Full Description]

ANICIUS MANLIUS SEVERINUS BOETHIUS
RENAISSANCE COPY OF BOETHIUS'S CONSOLATION OF PHILOSOPHY IN ITS ORIGINAL BINDING. In Latin, manuscript on paper, Italy (Venice?), c. 1475-1500. Dimensions 210 x 140 mm, 70 paper folios, complete, two watermarks, vertical catchwords, ruled in lead, prose in one column, verse sometimes in two, written in an experienced Italian humanist minuscule, blank spaces and cue letters left for initials. BINDING: CONTEMPORARY ITALIAN BINDING of bare (beech?) wood boards with beveled edges, remnant of leather formerly pasted across spine and partially covering boards, original brass clasps inset on front cover. TEXT: The most widely copied work of medieval secular literature, Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy is nevertheless relatively rare on the market. This volume, lacking the gloss found in many contemporary manuscripts which marks them as schoolbooks, was perhaps copied for the humanist scribe's own use. PROVENANCE: Based on its humanist minuscule and watermarks, this manuscript was produced by a single experienced hand in Northern Italy, probably Venice, in the last quarter of the fifteenth century; large detailed manicula (pointing hand) on f. 3 added by a contemporary hand; early modern reader added a border of jagged scribbles around the textblocks of ff. 8v and 24v; inexpert hand adds "Jacopi – che qui anno 1693 i Viterbo 1693" in runny ink on f. 29v, presumably a later unidentified owner, placing the manuscript in Viterbo; an undeciphered three-word note in nineteenth-century German kurrentscript on pastedown (meaning is unclear), suggesting a period of German ownership … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOHANNITIUS (HUNAYN IBN ISHAQ), PSEUDO-GALEN (THEOPHILUS PROTOSPATHARIUS?), and Others
Spain (Catalonia, Barcelona?), c. 1475. RARE MEDIEVAL MEDICAL MANUSCRIPT IN A CATALAN TRANSLATION. In Catalan, decorated manuscript on paper, dimensions 290 x 204 mm, 24 folios, complete, unidentified watermark, horizontal catchword, written in a formal cursive gothic bookhand in two columns of thirty-two lines, openings of each section in angular capitals with some ascenders, two blue initials (7-line and 2-line), some rubrics with calligraphic penstrokes. BINDING: CONTEMPORARY LIMP PARCHMENT ENVELOPE with flap and leather ties. TEXT: the present volume contains texts from the Ars Medicinae used for the study of medicine in medieval universities in a Catalan translation, including a synthesis of essential texts by Galen. Only four copies of this translation survive, the other three in insitutions; this one is unrecorded, and there is no modern edition. PROVENANCE: written in Spain, in Catalonia, very likely Barcelona, c. 1475 based on the evidence of the language and script. Later, the manuscript was owned by Joan Gili i Serra (1907-1998), Anglo-Catalan antiquarian bookdealer of Dolphin Bookshop off the Charing Cross Road, London, and later in Oxford, as well as an important Catalan publisher and translator. CONDITION: small spots in places, otherwise in excellent condition. Full description and images available. (TM 1011)

The first 5 books (all that appeared in the author's lifetime) of a monumental work of Renaissance architecture by Sebastiano Serlio (1475-1554), with 3 books in their first editions (bilingual French and Italian), and the 2 that had been published earlier in their third editions (in Italian), all extensively and very beautifully illustrated with numerous detailed woodcuts.Ad 1: First edition of books I and II, published at Paris in Italian and French while Serlio was working as one of the architects of François I's palace at Fontainebleau near Paris. Book I is devoted to geometry as the scientific basis for art and architecture. Book II teaches perspective drawing and its principles. Besides the illustrations on these subjects in general, it includes perspective views of theatrical scenery. This makes the book the first published account of modern theatre practice.Ad 2: The third Italian edition of book III, describing and depicting antiquities in Rome and elsewhere in Italy. It illustrates not only classical Roman buildings, but also a large number of designs from the Vatican workshop, as well as buildings erected by Bramante and Raphael at Rome, by Peruzzi at Naples, etc.Ad 3: The third Italian edition of book IV, using the woodcuts of the first (1537) and the second (1542) editions. Book IV had been the first book printed, so it covers the five orders of columns, basic for all architectural plans and designs. It is the most beautifully illustrated of the five books, with many full-page illustrations, both of whole buildings and splendid details.Ad 4: First editi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anonimo
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).

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.

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.

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. With mostly marginal foxin … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]
