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).

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.

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]

Only four fifteenth-century editions of Augustine's spiritual autobiography are recorded, each printed in a different city.

This was the first and only dated edition of three produced on the second press of Johannes Bonus, who identified himself as a German Augustinian in his verse colophons. He had worked previously for the Augustinians in Savona, near Genoa, where he printed at least two editions in 1474.

MUNDINUS (or MONDINO DEI LUZZI)
[22] leaves, Gothic type, 43 lines. Folio (301 x 213 mm.), disbound (some worming towards end). [Padua (not Pavia): Pierre Maufer, about 1475]. First edition, a remarkable discovery of the third known copy of the true first edition of the first modern book devoted solely to anatomy. The other two surviving copies are in the Biblioteca Corsiniana (Rome) and the Biblioteca Comunale (Viterbo). The rarity of this book is well-known: it is revealing that Castiglioni, Choulant, and Garrison all cite the 1478 edition as the first printing. Its influence was great: "The first outstanding anatomist worthy of the name…the Anathomia of Mondino was the most used anatomical text up to the end of the sixteenth century, probably because it contained the most important technical indications in brief and concise form."-Castiglioni, A History of Medicine, pp. 341-43. Mondino (ca. 1275-1326), a native of Bologna, was the son of an apothecary and the nephew of a professor of medicine. He attended the University of Bologna where he studied under Alderotti (Thaddeus of Florence), an early dissector, and took his medical degree in 1300. Mondino soon became a professor of medicine at the university. "Mondino's chief work is his compendium of anatomy, Anatomia Mundini, completed in 1316, which made him, in Castiglione's [sic] words, 'the first outstanding anatomist worthy of the name.' Mondino's book dominated anatomy for over two hundred years. The major reason for Mondino's great popularity was the simplicity, conciseness, and systematic arrangement of his book, which is divided into six parts: … [Click Below for Full Description]

PONTANUS, Petrus (Pierre de PONTE).
Bibl. Belg. P317 (IV, p. 714: 1 copy); Moreau III, 887 (2 copies). Richly and beautifully hand-decorated copy of a very rare edition of a Latin school grammar by Pierre de Ponte (1475-1539). The decoration goes beyond mere colouring and the application of gold. Some of the initials have flowers or figures painted in that do not seem to be present in the printed initial, so that two initials that were probably printed from the same block sometimes appear different in details of form. Born at Bruges, De Ponte was blinded at age three but became a school teacher at Paris. The title-page calls him caecus Brugensis (the blind man of Bruges). His Latin grammar distinguished itself by its methods and scholarly qualities, teaching children by questions and answers in prose, with examples taken from classical authors. The first part treats Latin grammar and the second part Latin syntax. Only two other copies of the present edition are known.Title-page with a faint early owner's inscription. Some restorations and water stains in the title-page and it and the following leaf somewhat browned, but the rest of the leaves are in very good condition. The binding has cracks in the hinges and scuff marks mostly at the corners, but is still good. Very rare edition of a classic Latin school grammar, beautifully coloured and decorated with extensive use of gold.

Augsburg Johann Bämler 20 März Type 1a 2 1475 - Einspaltiges, 30-zeiliges O-Inkunabelblatt mit einem farbig koloriertem Holzschnitt (7,7 x 6,9 cm) des Heiligen Sankt Eustachius. Blatt fingerfleckig und knapp beschnitten. Blattgröße: 20,4 x 13,7 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Seltenes Inkunabelblatt! Der italienische Prediger und Schriftsteller Jacobus de Voragine (Viraggio) aus dem heutigen Varazze bei Genua lebte von 1230 - 1298. Der Dominikaner Jacobus de Voragine fügte aus der Bibel, den Apokryphen, verschiedenen Akten sowie überlieferten Geschichten, die Lebensgeschichten der Heiligen zur Legenda Aurea. Das Werk in volkstümlicher lateinischer Sprache geschrieben, wurde zum populärsten religiösen Volksbuch des Mittelalter. Die deutschen Übersetzungen der Legenda Aurea wurden das Leben der Heiligen oder Der Heiligen Leben genannt. Zahlreiche Anzeichen deuten heute darauf hin, dass zwischen 1384 und 1421 im Umkreis des Dominikanerordens in Nürnberg eine neue Kompilationen der Heiligenlegenden entstand, die unter Einbeziehung der Legenda aurea, stärker auf den deutschsprachigen Glaubensraum bezogen waren. So wurden in diesem Legendar Bonifazius, Gallus, Kilian oder Magnus von Füssen aufgenommen. Dieser deutsche Legendar übertraf in seiner Verbreitung die Leganda Aurea. (Becker; Overgaauw: Aderlass + Seelentrost 2003, 219). Die Legende berichtet von Eustachius (Der Standfeste; Tod um 118), der vor seiner Bekehrung Placidus hieß und Jäger und Heermeister einer Legion in Kleinasien unter Kaiser Trajan war. Eines Tages erschien ihm bei der Jagd auf einer Felskuppe ein Hirsch … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anonimo
1475 - Bulino, 1475-1500 circa, privo di data e di iscrizioni. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini, in perfetto sttao 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 tra … [Click Below for Full Description]
