BERNARDUS CLARAEVALLENSIS (BERNARD OF CLAIRVAUX - SAINT BERNARD) - EARLY INCUNABULA.
(Augsburg, Anton Sorg, ca. 1475-77). Folio. (29X20,5 cm.). Recent hvellum. With 44 (of 45) leaves. F. 42 missing. Rubricated throughout. With 3 large initials in colour, 12 small initials in red and blue. 3 leaves with a large ornamental tendril in red covering the whole lenght of the page. 4 leaves with a small narrow wormtract in outer margin. A small stamp on foot of F1. Otherwise a nearly mint copy, printed on heavy clean paper.. Scarce second (?) printing of Bernard's instructions to pope Eugene III., On Consideration. - Always a vigorous champion of papal reforms, Bernard of Clairvaux toward the end of his life saw one of his own monks raised to the papal throne as Eugene III. While acting as the new Pope's political and spiritual counsellor, the Great Cistercian abbot was tireless in advancing Eugene's policies and in defending his authority and prestige. Bernard sent him, at the pope's own request, various instructions which comprise the Book of Considerations, the predominating idea of which is that the reformation of the Church ought to commence with the sanctity of the pope. Temporal matters are merely accessories; the principles according to Bernard's work were that piety and meditation were to precede action.Hain, 2887. - Goff B-368

SAVOYARD ARTIST.
Southern France: circa 1475. Arched miniature depicting King David kneeling in prayer, 91 x 65mm., set in elaborate illuminated border on three sides; 4-line illuminated initial D (of "Domine" - O Lord), eight lines of gothic text on the other side;Mounted. A superb late fifteenth-century miniature of King David from a French Book of Hours. The image of David, with his harp, kneeling in prayer, introduces the opening of the Seven Penitential Psalms, of which King David was traditionally identified as the author. The quality of the miniature is very fine; the king's face, drapery and the naturalistic landscape in which he kneels are all delicately rendered. The intense colours, differentiated landscape, and the elaborate border decoration of acanthus and gold leaves and flowers on swirling hairline stems all point to an artist in southern France.The group of Seven Penitential Psalms (6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, and 143) is particularly expressive of sorrow and repentance for sin, and was first given the name by Saint Augustine of Hippo: the title was originally only associated with the fifty-first psalm, 'Miserere', the psalm which was conventionally used to close daily morning service.King David also appears here as a model of penitence: after his commission of the dual crimes of adultery, with Bathsheba, and the murder of her husband Uriah, by sending him to be killed in battle, David was rebuked by the prophet Nathan and reprimanded by God. He repented and withdrew to live in exile, devoting himself to prayer.The miniature dates from the end of the fifteenth century, and is … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paduano." [Strasbourg: The R-Printer (Adolf Rusch), ca. 1475-80]. First edition of this important herbal and pharmacological work, one of the earliest printed books with an exclusively medical content; the recipes are largely based on Greek and Arabic sources. This is a magnificent copy -- crisp, large, and rubricated -- in its first binding from the Episcopal Court Library at Eichstätt. Dondis (1295-1359), a native of Padua, was the municipal physician of Chioggia, a coastal town near Venice and later became professor of medicine at Padua. Dondis was also a mechanician who designed a complicated automatic clock for his native town; it was certainly one of the earliest tower clocks. Astronomy was another area in which Dondis worked; he wrote a work entitled Planetarium, a set of astronomical tables based on the Alphonsine ones but simpler and computed for the meridian of Padua. Dondis' "most extensive work was the Aggregatio medicamentorum, or Promptuarium medicinae, a work which contains a large collection of medical recipes based largely on Gre … [Click Below for Full Description]

A CHARMING ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT CALENDAR LEAF WITH ELABORATE DECORATED BORDER AND WITH ZODIACAL AND LABOR OF THE MONTH MINIATURES, FROM A FRENCH BOOK OF HOURS
France, late, 1475. 162 x 114 mm (6 3/8 x 4 1/2"). Single column, 16 lines of text in a fine gothic book hand. Text of saints' days in alternating red or blue (special saints in gold), headings and numerals in burnished gold, five one-line initials in burnished gold on a red and blue ground, the usual "K L" at top left of recto in the form of gray and white acanthus leaves on a background of brushed gold, verso with quarter panel border featuring blue and gold acanthus leaves and sprays of blue or pink flowers on leafy stems, RECTO WITH THREE-QUARTER BORDER of red and blue acanthus and various flowers on a brushed gold ground, THE LOWER BORDER WITH A MINIATURE OF A SCORPION (representing Scorpio, the Zodiac sign of the month), AND THE FORE BORDER WITH A MINIATURE SHOWING THE LABOR OF THE MONTH (a man sowing). A bit of browning right at fore edge on both sides, minor wrinkling to inner margin, otherwise IN FINE, BRIGHT CONDITION, with only the most trivial loss of pigment. Perhaps even more than in the previous three leaves, the artist here has made excellent use of gold in the labor of the month miniature, where it appears as the bright rain of seeds being scattered into freshly ploughed furrows as well as the leaves taking on their autumnal coloring on the trees in the background. We notice this in particular because the gold on this leaf is even a bit more glittering than on the others. The worker here is warmly dressed for the cool fall weather, and the contrast of the brown plowed earth to the green field behind it is appealing.

FRENCH ILLUMINATOR
France,: Paris or Rouen, circa 1475-, 1500.. Illuminated leaf, 215 x 139 mm., with an illuminated panel border on each side of the leaf, one 2-line initial, ten 1-line initial and eight line-fillers, 18 lines of gothic bookhand; in excellent condition. A beautifully illuminated leaf from a luxurious fifteenth-century French Book of Hours. On the recto the decorative panel border features a hybrid figure riding a grotesque animal with a human head and the body of a lion. The panel border on the verso is composed of blue and gold acanthus and coloured flowers and leaves in fields of liquid gold. The delicate initials suggest that it was executed in either Paris or Rouen. The extensive use of liquid gold in the margins forming unusual geometric forms is typical for manuscripts made in the second half of the fifteenth century.

: ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM IN LATIN AND ITALIAN, Italy (Florence?), c. 1475-1500, with eighteenth-century illuminated borders, 135 x 97 mm., 78 folios, apparently complete apart from the final added prayer (collation, i-vii10 viii8), written in a mannered humanistic bookhand, added prayers in italic (justification, 97 x 64-62 mm.), rubrics in text ink, often capitals highlighted with red diagonal slashes, red initials throughout, some with simple red pen decoration, FIVE ILLUMINATED FULL BORDERS, probably added in the eighteenth-century. BINDING: Bound in eighteenth-century (?) brown leather over pasteboard, with the original Italian, fifteenth-century blind-tooled front and back covers laid down, TEXT: This is an important small-format collection of prayers, together with formal liturgical texts, including the Office of St. Catherine, Mass of the Virgin and biblical readings, in both Latin (approximately sixty-nine texts) and Italian (seventeen prayers). The lengthy vernacular prayers are probably by contemporary fifteenth-century figures (including the Franciscan peacher, Cherubino da Spoleto (1414-1484) on ff. 11-12v, and a certain “Ser Pace patre de sancta felicita,”on ff. 16-19v) and deserve careful study. Dominican connections seem important, including a litany of Mary “composuit frater Margaretus OP,” on ff. 51-53. ILLUMINATION: Six illuminated borders, certainly added, probably in the eighteenth century: f. 1, full border of small red and purple flowers with thin stems and leaves, interspersed with small gold ball; a peacock and coat of a … [Click Below for Full Description]
