Konrad SCHWEYNHEIM & Arnold BUCKINCK
1478. Un anno dopo la pubblicazione della Geographia di Bologna, due tipografi itineranti di origine germanica, Schweynheim e Buckinck, stampano a Roma una nuova edizione dell'atlante bolognese. Il libro contiene una carta in più ma le carte conservano l'identità di disegno del Crivelli, risultando meno pittoriche ma più essenziali e cartograficamente più rilevanti. La letteratura individua nel Codice Ebneriano, conservato presso la Public Library di New York, la fonte di questa carta, nella quale sono presenti tutte le caratteristiche del modello tolemaico. Nelle carte sono infatti presenti stessi dettagli orografici ed idrografici riscontrabili nel Codice Ebner, con medesimi errori di posizione e nei toponimi. Della Geographia di Roma furono stampate nuove edizioni nel 1490, 1507 e 1508. Incisione in rame, stampata su due fogli di carta vergata coeva uniti, piccoli interventi di restauro perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Carta a proiezione trapezioidale, di grandissima rarità. Dimensioni 440-495x265. A year after the Bolognese edition of the Geographia, two German travelling typographers, Schweynheim e Buckinck, printed in Rome a new editino of this atlas. The book contains one extra map, but all the others have kept the original design created by Crivelli, becoming less pictorial and more essential, especially under a cartogtaphical point of view. Very likely, the Codice Ebneriano, kept nowadays in the Public Library of New York, might have been the source of inspiration for this map, in which can be seen all the main characteristics … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ludolphus (Ludolf von Sachsen) de Saxonia):
Ulm Johann Zainer d Ä nicht vor Type 7, 1478. Einspaltiges, 40-zeiliges O-Inkunabelblatt mit einer 5-zeiligen Holzschnitt-Initiale und einem ¾-seitigen altkolorierten Holzschnitt (11,7 x 14,5 cm). Blattgröße: 18 x 25,4 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. - - - Die geistliche Auslegung des Lebens Jesu Christi ist eine freie deutsche Bearbeitung von Ludolf von Sachsens 'Vita Christi'. Ludolf von Sachsen (um 1300-1377/78) war Dominikaner und Magister der Theologie. Er lebte in den Kartausen von Straßburg, Koblenz und Mainz (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, G-63). Der "Biograph" der Inkunabelholzschnitte Albert Schramm schreibt 1922: Die "Gaistliche ußlegong des lebens Jhesu Cristi", die schon immer wegen eines Teiles seiner Holzschnitte die Aufmerksamkeit der Bücherliebhaber auf sich gezogen hat, ist wegen seiner Seltenheit freilich nur Wenigen zu Gesicht gekommen (Insel-Bücherei, Nr. 350). Die Ausstattung der Bücher mit Holzschnitten wurde zumeist einem Reisser anvertraut. Ausnahmen sind selten. Die Holzschnitte der "geistlichen Auslegung" waren ursprünglich für andere Bücher oder Einzelblätter, die heute nicht mehr nachzuweisen sind, bestimmt gewesen (F. Winkler: Dürer und die Illustrationen zum Narrenschiff 1951). Diese hier vorliegende mittelalterliche Darstellung orientiert sich, wie alle Inkunabelholzschnitte bis etwa 1490, sehr stark an vorgeprägten Mustern. Individueller Ausdruck war den Künstlern des Mittelalters weitgehend fremd, da der Zeitgeist allgemeingültige und verständliche Ausdrucksmittel verlangte. Eine Eigenart dieses Holzschnitts ist die Schnittrahmung, die rech … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Pannonien um 515 - 580) trug wesentlich zur Christianisierung der Sueben in Galizien bei (Jöcher). "Daß sich in dem kleinen württ.

Der Drucker Conrad Mancz hat nur einen einzigen Druck aus dem Jahr 1475 mit dem Druckort und seinem Namen versehen.. Seine Tätigkeit als Drucker in Blaubeuren endete um 1478/79.

Several small but persistent worm holes, several early marginal notes. A very nice, large copy of an important edition. Noted scholar Boies Penrose's copy, with his bookplate on the front free endpaper.

This handsome Venetian edition is one of two printed in the city in that year, and they are among the earliest published geographical works. The publications of Mela and Ptolemy were incentives for further exploration, and in particular Mela's descriptions of Africa were used by the Portuguese navigators who were venturing far out into the Atlantic for the first time.

Nuremberg, Koberger, 14. VI. 1478. Large folio (280 x 360 mm). Including Menardus monachus. (1), CCCCLXI, (6) ff., with two coloured historiated initials. 16th century blindstamped pigskin binding over wooden boards, wants clasps. Koberger's third Latin Bible, printed with the same types as the second: in the splendic Gothic typeface which Koberger used exclusively for his Bibles; at the same time, the earliest type he is known to have used (cf. Klemm, Bibliogr. Mus., 722). The initial on fol. i shows the evangelist Mark with the lion; the tendril decoration reaches from the upper edge (slightly trimmed) to the lower one, ending in a coat of arms bearing the monogram "S-A-B". The second historiated initial on fol. iiii shows the Fall from Grace (Adam and Eve in paradise, with the apple tree and the serpent in the centre); here, the tendrils reach as far as the lower third of the page and also end in a coat of arms. Very exactingly rubricated throughout; signed at the end: "91 Jo fec". Several handwritten ownerships to fol. A1r, some contemporary, others as late as 1876: the name and printed bookplate of "C. R. Earley, Ridgway, Pa." (1823-98). Several manuscript marginalia. Some slight browning to the gutter of the first few leaves, staining to upper edge of fol. i. Insignificant waterstaining to upper edge of several leaves; occasional foxing or tiny smudged inkstains. Handwritten marginalia trimmed in places, but altogether a crisp, wide-margined copy. Some staining to the hefty binding; edges as well as a crack to the upper cover have been unobtrusively repaired. Hain 306 … [Click Below for Full Description]

PICCOLOMINI, Aeneas Sylvius
1458-1478 1ed Epistles of Pope Pius II Incunable Papal Letters Turks Bohemia Catholic Better known as Pope Pius II, Enea Piccolomini was an important 15th-century Pope who began his papal reign in 1458. He is remembered today for his collection of letters and commentaries and held a conservative political reputation; for instance, he condemned those who owned slaves. His ‘Epistles’ were an important source of historical information and offer a clear description of Bohemia and Emperor Frederick III. The letters in this incunable printing are concluded with a date of 1458 and have a wide variety of topics including: letters to French bishops, orders set out against Turks, how to ensure child safety, proper ways to wage war against wickedness, and much, much more. Note on dating: it is exceedingly rare to find 15th-century rubricated incunables dated in the 1450s. This printing has a dated colophon of 1458! However, it is likely that it was not printed until at least 1472, perhaps 1478. According to Proctor, Johann Koelhoff the elder did not begin printing in Cologne until 1472. Proctor also dates this work at 1478. According to Quaritch, “There is so much irregularity in the typographical composition of this book that it looks like Koelhoff’s earliest book.” Item number: #3562 Price: $7500 PICCOLOMINI, Aeneas Sylvius Enee Silvii Senensis poete laureati imperislisque secretarii viri omnium facile perstantissimi Rex Familiarum incipiunt epistole peramene.

Ulm, Johann Zainer d. Ä., nicht vor 1478. Type 7. Einspaltiges, 40-zeiliges O-Inkunabelblatt mit einer vierzeiligen und dreizeiligen Holzschnitt-Initiale und einem dreiviertelseitigen Holzschnitt (11,6 x 13,6 cm). Die Kopfbedeckung zweier Soldaten auf dem Holzschnitt sind schwach ankoloriert. Handschriftliche Eintragung der Seitenzahl von alter Hand. Ein Wurmloch. Blattgröße: 18,8 x 25,4 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. - - - Die geistliche Auslegung des Lebens Jesu Christi ist eine freie deutsche Bearbeitung von Ludolf von Sachsens 'Vita Christi'. Ludolf von Sachsen (um 1300-1377/78) war Dominikaner und Magister der Theologie. Er lebte in den Kartausen von Strassburg, Koblenz und Mainz (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, G-63). Der "Biograph" der Inkunabelholzschnitte Albert Schramm schreibt 1922: Die "Gaistliche ußlegong des lebens Jhesu Cristi", die schon immer wegen eines Teiles seiner Holzschnitte die Aufmerksamkeit der Bücherliebhaber auf sich gezogen hat, ist wegen seiner Seltenheit freilich nur Wenigen zu Gesicht gekommen (Insel-Bücherei, Nr. 350). Die Ausstattung der Bücher mit Holzschnitten wurde zumeist einem Reisser anvertraut. Ausnahmen sind selten. Die Holzschnitte der "geistlichen Auslegung" waren ursprünglich für andere Bücher oder Einzelblätter, die heute nicht mehr nachzuweisen sind, bestimmt gewesen (F. Winkler: Dürer und die Illustrationen zum Narrenschiff 1951). Diese vorliegende mittelalterliche Darstellung orientiert sich, wie alle Inkunabelholzschnitte bis etwa 1490, sehr stark an vorgeprägten Mustern. Individueller Ausdruck war den Künstlern des Mittelal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ptolemaeus.
Engraved map of the Arabian peninsula, printed (as usual) on two joined folio leaves (together 563 x 396 mm). Matted. Highly important early map of the Arabian Peninsula and adjoining regions, from the extraordinary 1478 Rome edition of Ptolemy's "Geography", created under the direction of Conrad Swenheym (who apprenticed with Gutenberg). The second map of the Peninsula ever published, in its first state, this is the earliest obtainable printed map of Arabia, preceded only by the less detailed and crudely engraved specimen in the Bologna edition of Ptolemy, which is generally regarded as unobtainable. - The present map is an excellent example of Swenheym's finely engraved map of Arabia, based upon Ptolemy. Among the towns shown are Medina (Lathrippa) and the archaeological sites of Zubarah (Catara) and Al-Dur (Domana). The association of Macoraba with Mecca is disputed. Shirley notes that "[t]he new copper plates engraved at Rome for the 1478 edition of Ptolemy's 'Geography' are much superior in clarity and craftsmanship to those of the Bologna edition. There is evidence that work on the Rome edition had been started in 1473 or 1474, and several of the plates may well have been engraved before those printed [by Taddeo Crivelli] at Bologna in 1477. The printing was carried out by two skilled printers of German origin: Conrad Sweynheym and his successor Arnold Buckinck; the publisher was Domitius Calderinus. Many consider the Rome plates to be the finest Ptolemaic plates produced until Gerard Mercator engraved his classical world atlas of 1578" (p. 3). - Until the 1477 editio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Biblia latina].
Nuremberg, Koberger, 14. VI. 1478. Large folio (280 x 360 mm). Including Menardus monachus. (1), CCCCLXI, (6) ff., with two coloured historiated initials. 16th century blindstamped pigskin binding over wooden boards, wants clasps. Koberger's third Latin Bible, printed with the same types as the second: in the splendic Gothic typeface which Koberger used exclusively for his Bibles; at the same time, the earliest type he is known to have used (cf. Klemm, Bibliogr. Mus., 722). The initial on fol. i shows the evangelist Mark with the lion; the tendril decoration reaches from the upper edge (slightly trimmed) to the lower one, ending in a coat of arms bearing the monogram "S-A-B". The second historiated initial on fol. iiii shows the Fall from Grace (Adam and Eve in paradise, with the apple tree and the serpent in the centre); here, the tendrils reach as far as the lower third of the page and also end in a coat of arms. Very exactingly rubricated throughout; signed at the end: "91 Jo fec". Several handwritten ownerships to fol. A1r, some contemporary, others as late as 1876: the name and printed bookplate of "C. R. Earley, Ridgway, Pa." (1823-98). Several manuscript marginalia. Some slight browning to the gutter of the first few leaves, staining to upper edge of fol. i. Insignificant waterstaining to upper edge of several leaves; occasional foxing or tiny smudged inkstains. Handwritten marginalia trimmed in places, but altogether a crisp, wide-margined copy. Some staining to the hefty binding; edges as well as a crack to the upper cover have been unobtrusively repaired. Hain 306 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mela, Pomponius
Venice: F. Renner de Hailbrun, 1478. 48 leaves. Small quarto. Handsome brown morocco, tooled and paneled in gilt, spine gilt, raised bands, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Front hinge repaired. Several small but persistent worm holes, several early marginal notes. A very nice, large copy of an important edition. Noted scholar Boies Penrose's copy, with his bookplate on the front free endpaper. Pomponius Mela is often taken as an accurate sum of European geographical knowledge before the discovery of the New World. This handsome Venetian edition is one of two printed in the city in that year, and they are among the earliest published geographical works. The publications of Mela and Ptolemy were incentives for further exploration, and in particular Mela's descriptions of Africa were used by the Portuguese navigators who were venturing far out into the Atlantic for the first time.

MELA, Pomponius (ca. 50 AD). -
Venezia, Franciscus Renner de Heilbronn, 1478. In-4. Rilegatura del primo '900 in mezzo marocchino marrone. Con 4 belle iniziali silografiche. (48) ff.; caratteri romani, 26 linee con note marginali. Esemplare abilmente rinfrescato, con qualche macchiolina e tre piccoli restauri nei margini delle prime due carte. La Cosmographia del Mela è la più antica opera geografica scritta in latino. La descrizione dell'Europa, dell'Asia e dell'Africa - con riferimenti alla Cina, all'India, all'Arabia, al Mar Rosso, all'Etiopia - era assai apprezzata nel '400 e stimolò molto i viaggi di scoperta del periodo, specialmente quelli dei navigatori portoghesi lungo le coste dell'Africa e nell'oceano Atlantico. All'edizione originale del 1471 seguirono una ristampata nel 1477, e due edizioni veneziane pressoché identiche nel 1478: questa è la quarta. DSB XI, 74. BMC V, 195. Klebs 675. Goff M-450. Mela's Cosmographia, a description of Europe, Asia and Africa, is the earliest surviving geographical work in Latin. It was very popular during Europe's great Age of Exploration. This is the fourth edition (first edn.: 1471). With 4 nice ornamental woodcut initials, white on black ground; title (2 lines) and chapter-headings printed in red; Roman type, 26 lines with marginalia. A skilfully washed copy with a few pale spots here and there and three small repairs in the blank margins of first two leaves not affecting the printed surface, bound in early 20th century half brown morocco, gilt lettering on spine.
