Bible in Latin]
Nuremberg Anton Koberger 30 July, 1477. Very Early Printing of the Bible and only the second Latin Bible printed by Koberger, 51 lines and headline, double column, canon marginalia in the Gospels. With manuscript headlines in red, a beautiful opening initial of 10 lines with elaborate flourishes that flow from the very top to very bottom of the page in red, blue and green, numerous 6 line initials in red and blue, some with much longer extensions or flourishes, a profusion of 3 line initials in red or blue, red paragraph marks and additional rubricating throughout primarily in red. Royal folio (375 x 265mm approx), in contemporary German blind-stamped pigskin over thick wood boards, (probably a Nuremberg binding), the boards center-paneled and decorated in blind with a central tool within multiple borders, remnants of brass catches on the fore-edge. Manuscript lettering to the spine with wide tall bands. 468 leaves, complete. An unusually fine copy, especially well preserved and very handsome indeed. An important copy with full contemporary binding intact, and in great likelihood coming directly from Koberger¬ís workshop. A RARE AND EXTREMELY HANDSOME COPY, ESPECIALLY WELL PRESERVED. THIS BOOK REPRESENTS ONLY THE SECOND TIME THAT KOBERGER PRINTED THE LATIN BIBLE. This printing was issued in the second year after the first printing of 1475. Anton Koberger was for a number of years the leading publisher/printer of his time. The total list of his printings for the forty years from 1473 to 1513, when he died, comprises no less than two-hundred and thirty-six separate works, incl … [Click Below for Full Description]

TORTELLIUS, JOHANNES
Treviso: [Hermannus Liechtenstein] for Michael Manzolus, 2 April, 1477. Third Edition. This is a fresh contemporary copy of an elegantly printed and handsomely decorated secular work on orthography, issued in the 1470s as one of the earliest books from the press of an important Italian printer. First printed in Rome in 1471 and then in Venice the same year, the "Orthographia" addresses the important question of how to write Greek words in Latin. It begins with a discussion of how the various letters in the Roman alphabet should be used to represent both the spelling and the pronunciation of Greek words. A short discussion of diphthongs follows, and then the subsequent bulk of the volume is devoted to an alphabetical listing of the proper latinized spelling of Greek words from "Abacus" to "Zodiacus." This was a popular book, going through several incunabular printings (Goff lists eight), as it became an accepted reference guide for use during the editing of Greek classics for printing in Latin. A native of Arezzo, the humanist Johannes Tortellius (Giovanni Tortelli, 1400-66) studied Greek for many years before coming to Rome at age 47 to serve as librarian to Pope Nicholas V, to whom "Orthographia" is dedicated. He must have been a man of considerable means, because he provided patronage to scholars who had fled from the Byzantine Empire, and he spent lavishly on classical works (books from his personal collection ended up comprising a substantial portion of the early Vatican Library). Although he obviously admired the ancients, Tortelli was also interested in the modern in … [Click Below for Full Description]

INCUNABULA. Augustine, Saint, Bishop of Hippo.
Naples: Mathias Moravus, 1477.. Folio (266 x 209 mm), a8 b10; a-z10 aa-dd10, 298 leaves, a1, b10, dd10 blank, (this copy wanting the three blank leaves), 43 lines to the page, spaces for initials with printed guide-letters, a wide-margin copy, a few wormholes at beginning and end, 4 leaves repaired in margins just reaching text, nineteenth century blue polished calf, embossed in blind within gilt roll-tooled border, spine elaborately gilt in six compartments, a nice copy.Floral border on the inner margin on (2)a1 recto at the beginning of the text of Book I, with flowers in blue and dark pink, green leaves, extended with gold balls. Eight-line Initial I in gold on a squared background of pink and blue with small white penwork decoration. The beginning of each of the 21 following books is marked with a 6-line initial in gold with infills in pink, blue or green, all with white penwork decoration. The gold initial marking the beginning of Book XXI (aa 5 verso) is not filled in with colour. The painted initials are protected with tissue paper, probably inserted at the time of the present binding. Within the books each chapter is marked with a 3-line plain initial, alternating in red and blue. Comparison with other work by Mathias Moravus yields strong arguments for assuming that the illumination and decoration were carried out in his printing house. (see below). Some early notes, partly erased or washed. There are no marks of early ownership. After the colophon the figures '7,1 - 6 -' are written in a hand of the nineteenth, possibly late eighteenth century. This … [Click Below for Full Description]
