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]

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.

Ferrara, ca 1475. 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 Bianchi … [Click Below for Full Description]

PSEUDO-CYRILLUS. [BONIOHANNES DE MESSANA]
[Basel: Michael Wenssler, ca. 1475]. This is a rare copy of one of the earliest printings of a fable collection, a book that predates the first appearance of Aesop by some three years. The work is divided into four books: an overview with fables promoting virtues, followed by three sections with tales warning, in turn, against arrogance, greed, and love of luxury. As in Aesop, various animals--lions, monkeys, roosters, crows, foxes--are used to embody human traits. Long attributed to the fourth century bishop Cyril of Jerusalem, it was determined by Thomas Kaeppeli to be the work of 13th century writer Boniohannes de Messana. "The Mirror of Wisdom" was apparently first printed in Strassburg no later than 1474; ISTC notes that the Bamberg copy was rubricated in that year. Our edition emanated "about 1475" from the workshop of Michael Wenssler, a Strassburg-born printer who was active in Basel for nearly 20 years. Wenssler entered the University of Basel in 1462, and started his press in that city 10 years later, with Friedrich Biel. According to Haebler, "Wenssler introduces in his type a series of new and quite peculiar forms. . . . He seems in his earliest types to have had a great affection for ornamented" letters. Wenssler flourished for many years, but his business ran into difficulties in the 1480s and he was forced to flee his debtors in 1491. Still, he did not abandon his trade, and there are records of him working as a printer in the South of France and in Lyon until about 1496. Former owner Victor de Guinzbourg (ca. 1906-76) was an Allied intelligence agent during … [Click Below for Full Description]
