        [Epistola contra Judaeorum errores].

      [Naples, Francesco di Dino, 1478-1480].. 4to. 40 unnumbered ff., including first and final blanks. Roman type in single-column, 26 lines. Contemporary limp vellum.. Rare Neapolitan incunable: an important polemical treatise against Judaism in the form of a letter written in the twelfth century by Rabbi Samuel Abu Nasr Ibn Abbas, a Moroccan Jew converted to Islam. The work was translated from Arabic into Latin in the fourteenth century by the Spanish Dominican Alfonso Buenhombre and became one of the flagships of anti-Semitic literature, reprinted for over two centuries, translated into several languages disseminated all over Europe. "Alphonsus Boni Hominis claims only to translate the Epistola of Rabbi Samuel but 'it seems he himself was the author, drawing largely from another tract in Arabic' (Encyclopaedia Judaica)" (ISTC). - Printing in Naples began only in 1471. Francesco di Dino, born in Florence, moved to Naples around 1474 and probably worked in the printing shop of Heinrich (Enrico) Alding. His activity as a printer in Naples is attested from 1478, when his name appears for the first time in "La divina dottrina di S. Caterina da Siena", on April 28. He remained in Naples until 1480 and during this period produced some five or seven volumes, some of which, such as this, do not mention his press. Some bibliographers have attributed this to the press of Georg Herolt in Rome. - Vellum wrinkled and shrunk; occasional brownstaining to the wide margins; insignificant worming near end. A good copy. - HC 14264*. Goff S-868. BMC VI 868. Proctor 349. Ohly-Sack 2516. IGI 8578. ISTC is00104800.

        PLANISFERO CASTIGLIONI WORLD MAP (CARTA DEL NAVEGARE UNIVERSALISSIMA ET DILIGENTISSIMA) Fine Facsimile Edition of Hand Coloured Map

      Il Bulino. New. Hardcover. <p>The Castiglioni World Map is a large nautical map drawn on four sheets of vellum joined together to make up a single 81.5 × 214 cm sheet. &#145;Universal&#146; indicates the description of the whole then-known world, and &#145;accurate&#146;, the particular technical care employed by the cartographer. The map has been attributed to Diego Ribeiro, head cartographer of the Casa de Contratación in Seville &#150; the office of the Spanish crown authorised to compile innovations in official nautical maps deriving from discoveries. It is of great interest in that it is the first document of this kind to visualize the theories of the sphericity of the Earth. </p><p>An authoritative geographic mapThe Planisphere originated from an outstanding cultural milieu, producing maps destined to the control of trade with the Indies rather than to a popularisation of geographic knowledge. The maps signed by Ribeiro, of which this one is among the oldest examples, referred to a prototype called &#145;Padrón Real&#146;. The map was donated by Emperor Charles V to Baldassarre Castiglioni (1478-1529) , author of the Corte­gia­no and apostolic nuncio; it remained the property of Counts Castiglioni until 2000, when the Italian State acquired it and assigned it to the Estense Library. </p><p>Facsimile editionThe world map has been placed in a specially made showcase and displayed in the &#145;Campori&#146; room of the Estense Library, together with other important objects relating to the history of cartography, on the occasion of the event &#145;Discovering the World. The Art of Cartography from Ptolemy to Mercator&#146; (January-May 2002). The Castiglioni Planisphere has been thoroughly studied by Ernesto Milano in his historical essay &#150; completed by a transcription and identification of geographical names by Anna­lisa Battini &#150; which forms the commentary volume of the facsimile edition, produced under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Culture.

        POMPONII MELLE COSMOGRAPHIA DE SITU ORBIS

      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&#39;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&#39;s descriptions of Africa were used by the Portuguese navigators who were venturing far out into the Atlantic for the first time.

        World map from Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini philosophi Geographiam Arnoldus Buckinck e Germania Romae

      Rome: Conrad Sweynheym and Arnold Buckinck, 1478. THE FIRST PTOLEMAIC MAP TO BE PRINTED FROM A COPPER PLATE. Copper-plate engraving: 151/2" x 211/2" References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 36; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 4. The importance of this seemingly simple, elegant world map from the 1478 Rome edition of Ptolemy&#39;s Georgraphia is impossible to overstate. It is considered by most historians to represent the apex of cartographic and technological progress in the fifteenth century (a time of major strides in the development of both printing and mapmaking). In terms of accuracy, beauty and graceful engraving, it remained the finest printed Ptolemaic map for nearly one hundred years after its publication. Ptolemy, the great Greek geographer, mathematician and astronomer, lived most of his life in Alexandria, the cultural center of the Hellenistic world. In about 160 A.D. he completed his "Guide to the Delineation of the World," which--after the New Testament--was the most enduring document of Christian doctrine, lasting for over 1400 years. Although he based much of his work on the information and learning of his predecessors, Ptolemy was the first to systematize geographical knowledge and to approach cartography in a scientific, systematic manner. His projection showed the sphericity of the earth and stressed the importance of determining exact latitude and longitude. Ptolemy, in fact, laid down principles of cartography almost two thousand years ago which in their essentials are in use to this day. Northern European immigrants to Rome, Conrad Sweynheym and Arnold Buckinck engraved this world map in the Eternal City in 1478. In 1465, Sweynheym had set up the first printing press in all of Italy, and with the help of mathematicians, he was the first to apply the new art of copper-engraving to the printing of maps. This innovation was a true landmark in the history of map printing, and the copper-plate medium soon became the standard on which all map publications were based. Only thirty-nine copies of the first 1478 edition were known to exist in 1952, perhaps even fewer today. This represents a rare opportunity to acquire an early modern map of outstanding significance.. Book.

        Quaestiones in quattor libros Sententiarum.Part 2. [bound with] Quodlibeta

      Venice:, 1478, 7 January & 1477, 7 October.. Folio. 2 works in 1volume.. 19th century vellum-backed paper- boards,fore-edge rubbed; title in old hand; contemporary ownership inscription of ?Brother Antonius d?Asralo OM? on blank before first t.p. and on last leaf of second work, also ownership inscription of Franciscan library at foot of first text leaf; some contemp. marginalia; a very fine crisp copy with ample margins. First initial letter in contemp. manuscript and decorated in red ink, a few leaves rubricated. Duns Scotus, John (c.1265?1308), Franciscan friar and theologian.tThe great commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard contains most of Scotus? important contributions to Medieval scholastic philosophy. These volumes are based on his Oxford Lectures and are sometimes referred to as the Opus Oxoniense. Each of the volumes stands alone. ?It was part of the duty of a regent master to conduct quodlibetal disputations, so called because ?they could be about any topib whatever (de quodlibet) and could be initiated by any member of the audience (a quodlibet). Scotus?s quodlibetal Questiones were disputed in either Advent 1306 or Lent 1307. Scotus then revised the questions, completing the revision up through the last question, q12.? [Cambridge Companion To Duns Scotus] ?Though less extensive in scope (than the commentary on the Sentences), Scotus? Quaestiones Quodlibetales are almost as important; they express his most mature thinking as regent master at Paris.? [Ency. of Philosophy] Penketh, Thomas (d. 1487), Augustinian friar and theologian, describes himself in his theological notebook as of the Warrington convent in Lancashire, and evidently studied theology at Oxford before (probably immediately before) 1466; on the basis of his Oxford study he was granted leave to incept at Cambridge in the academic year 1466?7, and took the degree of DTh on 31 May 1468. He must have already had some repute within his order, since he was confirmed as prior provincial of England on 22 October 1469; but he evidently returned to Oxford, where he was permitted by his order to study and teach, until in 1474 he vacated the provincialship to study at Padua. He was appointed lector in metaphysics in the university there, almost certainly being the Master Thomas Anglicus confirmed in that post on 22 September 1475, and very probably holding it already in 1474, when he published in Venice his edition of the quodlibetal questions of John Duns Scotus. By 1477, when he brought out an edition of Scotus's commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard, he was holding the post of lector in theology, which he still held in 1479 according to his confrère, Brother Iacopo Filippo da Bergamo. He was re-elected prior provincial in 1480 (confirmed 15 March 1481) and again on 1 April 1485, presumably until death. At Easter 1484 he preached a sermon in praise of Richard III, which, according to Sir Thomas More, was afterwards excoriated, but which brought him an annual pension of £10 from the king. He died in London on 20 May 1487. Penketh's principal achievement was to be the first to publish scholarly but usable printed editions of the chief works of Duns Scotus and the Scotist theologian Antonius Andreae. His editorial work was crowded into the five or six years he spent at Padua, where he could be in touch with experienced printers; but it originated in the Scotist teaching of the Oxford and Cambridge theological faculties, as a surviving notebook in his hand shows (Oxford, Corpus Christi College, MS 126). It contains questions on universals by Brother William Russell, probably the Augustinian friar who incepted at Oxford in 1430, some unattributed questions on God and creatures, possibly Penketh's own, and a text of the commentary of Antonius Andreae on Aristotle's Metaphysics which he edited at Padua. All these texts are explicitly Scotist, one of the unascribed questions citing Scotus as doctor noster subtilis; together, they provide evidence of the theology taught at the Oxford Augustinian house from the 1430s to the 1470s, and of the Scotist learning that lay behind Penketh's editions of Scotus and Antonius Andreae. The editions ascribed to him are Scotus's Quaestiones quodlibetales, printed by Albert de Stendal (Padua, 1474), with the text emended by Penketh, and printed again from Penketh's text for Johann of Cologne (Venice, 1477) and reissued both in Nuremberg and in Venice in 1481; Scotus's Quaestiones super secundum librum sententiarum, printed by Stendal and emended by Penketh (Padua, 1474); Antonius Andreae's Quaestiones de tribus principiis rerum naturalium, printed by Laurentius Canozius and emended by Penketh and Laurentius de Lendenaria (Padua, 1475); Scotus's Quaestiones super libros sententiarum, edited by Penketh with Bartolomeo Bellati and printed for Johann of Cologne and Nicholas Jenson (Venice, 1477, and reissued there in both folio and quarto editions in 1481); Antonius Andreae's Quaestiones super ?Metaphysica?, printed for Nicholas Petri of Haarlem and emended by Penketh (Vicenza, 1477, and reissued in London for William Wilcock in 1480). These editions, especially of Scotus, circulated widely and for some time were the standard texts; they were made more useful by the inclusion of the early additamenta of Scotus's pupils which some editors omitted.
