[Illuminated manuscript leaf on vellum]. Master of Jacques de Besancon.
1480. Paris: c. 1480. 150 cm x 98 cm. Slight wear to inner margin, small hole in text portion. In an elaborate gold frame. § Arch-toped miniature showing the Virgin in blue holding the Child and a fruit, seated on a donkey, Joseph in front with a staff, a maidservant with basket behind, set in a landscape with city, an idol toppling from a column, and a full-page border with sprays of swirling blue and gold acanthus, red, blue and white flowers, on a paneled liquid gold and white ground, inhabited by a duck-faced Grotesque, with four lines of text in gothic bookhand with three-line opening initial with blue and mauve staves against a ground of burnished gold. Though not showing his trademark architectural frames, the subtle drapery folds, porcelain complexions, fine features and especially the fur-like, horizontally banded long runs of hair, in dark gold or gray, as well as the balanced composition, betray the influence, if not the hand, of the Master de Jacques de Besancon, whose dated works range from 1485 to 1498 and who took over both the style and the patrons of his predecessor Maitre Francois, active by 1473. The miniature includes the apocryphal detail from Pseudo-Matthew associated with the Flight into Egypt, showing an idol toppling from its column. On another miniature that survives from the same book, showing the Adoration of the Magi, there is a manger which derives from a model also used by the Master of Jean Rolin in a Nativity around 1450. Jean Rolin was probably the master of Maitre Francois, an artist with whom the Master de Jacques de Besancon has often be … [Click Below for Full Description]

Niello, 1470-1480 circa, nel nastro svolazzante l'iscrizione "SOL IN DEO SPERO". L'iscrizione consente di identificare il soggetto come un'allegoria della Speranza. La rappresentazione della figura femminile e lo stile molto delicato possono confrontarsi con altri nielli comunemente attribuiti a a Francesco Francia (Hind, Nielli, n. 242 e n. 247). Bella impressione, su carta vergata, due lievi ossidazioni e una piccola piega di carta nella parte inferiore dell'immagine, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Niello-print, 1470-1480 circa, inscribed in the flattering banner "SOL IN DEO SPERO". The inscription (Only in God I Hope) identifies the woman as an allegory of Hope. The feautures of the woman and the very delicate, but regular technique compare well with nielli usually attribued to Francesco Francia as: Hind, Nielli, n. 242 and n. 247. Fine impression, printed on laid paper, two small stains and a little paper fold lower in the image, otherwise in very good condition.

Southern Netherlands, Ghent or Bruges, c. 1480. BOOK OF HOURS OF CONSIDERABLE CHARM AND MODEST PROPORTIONS REFLECTING THE EVERYDAY PIETY PRACTICED IN A FLEMISH HOUSEHOLD. Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in Latin, Southern Netherlands, Ghent or Bruges, c. 1480. Dimensions 168 x 124 mm., 105 folios, lacking one calendar leaf, written in a gothic book hand in a single column of 18 lines, rubrics in red, many one-line initials in burnished gold or blue, a number of two-line (and a handful of four- and five-line) initials, 21 LARGE INITIALS ACCOMPANIED BY BORDERS of acanthus, fruit, and burnished gold ivy leaves, EIGHT CHARMING HISTORIATED INITIALS, and FOUR FULL-PAGE MINIATURES. BINDING: Bound in modern red velvet, signed S. Wiklander (?) on rear pastedown, in a fine red morocco folding box with gilt lettering.ILLUSTRATION:This Netherlandish Book of Hours is characterized by its charm and homespun realism. It was painted by three artists: a Dutch-influenced artist painted one miniature and a historiated initial, a Flemish artist contributed the other full-page pictures, and the animated and charming historiated initials are by a third hand. PROVENANCE: The appearance in the Calendar of saints venerated in Bruges and the style of the miniatures suggests the Southern Netherlands as the origin. The border decoration can be related to Ghent manuscripts by the Master of the Flemish Boethius. The very specific initials with foliage in liquid gold on red fields are found in the same group, but also in an Antwerp Book of Hours recently sold at Christie's (12 July 2017, lot 17). … [Click Below for Full Description]

1480. Der Arzt aus dem "Glöckner von Notre-Dame" The royal physician from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" COITIER, Jacques (1430-1506), französischer Mediziner, Leibarzt von König Ludwig IX. Brief m. eigh. U., Paris, 14. Juli 1480. Französische Handschrift auf Papier, 1 S. auf 1 Bl., c. 21,5 x 18 cm, Ränder beschnitten, hinterlegt, leicht angefleckt. An die Pariser Rechnungskammer, der er mitteilt, dass ihm der König als Entschädigung für die 500 Livres tournois, die ihm der Schatzmeister von Carcassonne, Arnoult Lullier noch schulde, die Hälfte der Schulden von Antoine Riboteau übertragen habe. Dieser war zur Zahlung des Soldes der Franc-archers der Chamapgne nach Langres geschickt worden, um die Zahlung des Halbjahressoldes für 1479 unter der Aufsicht des Franc-archers-Generals, Marschall Jean de Baudricourt (1435-1499) vorzunehmen, hatte das Geld jedoch veruntreut und war nun flüchtig. Coitier fordert die Rechnungskammer auf, das schuldige Geld einzutreiben, damit der König und er zu ihren Rechten kämen. Die Franc-archers waren die erste stehende Infanterie in Frankreich, die in Anbetracht der französischen Niederlagen gegen leichte englische Schützen (Crécy und Azincourt) 1448 aufgestellt, aber nach dem Schlachtdebakel bei Guinegate bereits 1479 wieder aufgelöst wurden. Coitier war nicht nur Leibarzt, sondern auch ein enger Vertrauter von König Ludwig IX. Die im vorliegenden Dokument bezeugte Schenkung einer solch beträchtlichen Summe - die Hälfte des Halbjahressolds für mehrere Tausend Soldaten - zeigt deutlich, wie groß die königliche Gunst war, die Coitier genoss.

Platina, Bartolomaeus
Cividale, Gerardus de Lisa de Flandria, 1480. 4to. (93) ff., wanting terminal blank. Bound in contemporary ornate blind-tooled calf over wooden boards, spine with two raised bands; remains of two metallic clasps with engraved devices. Initials calligraphed in red and blue throughout. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Scarce early edition of this landmark work of Western civilization: the first printed book on food and drink. "De Honesta Voluptate" is also an invaluable source for cultural historians tracing early trade routes with the East: Platina's use and discussion of ginger, rice, cinnamon, saffron, cloves, oranges, and so on indicates the already substantial commercial relationship between East and West by the mid-15th century, primarily via Arab traders. A classic text of the Renaissance, no other complete copy in an early binding has been seen in auction records of the last 50 years. - Platina, the future librarian of the Vatican, composed the present work in the early 1460s while on a summer retreat in the hills of Tuscany. The ten books of "De Honesta Voluptate" discuss the origin, properties, and uses of culinary ingredients ranging from herbs and spices to fruits, vegetables, and birds, beasts, and fish. Platina records some 240 recipes employing these ingredients; yet his guide is more than a mere cook-book, and contains much advice on 'the art of good living': of eating and drinking in moderation, of the value of sexual intercourse, and so on. - As the only such printed record of its time, the text of "De Honesta Voluptate" is a fascinating source on the use o … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRENCH ARTIST
A group of seven envoys, one of them black, present letters to a bearded king (presumably Gallic), seated on a throne in a gothic room; through the arched window are seen a large grassy hill and a castle, and in the far background another castle separated by water. With heading written in red: ?Le xvie chapitre Suetonius? Size of miniature: 122 x 97mm. Verso with 20 lines of text in black ink in a formal hybrid bookhand with one decorated foliate initial. A fine secular miniature once illustrating what would have been an imposing copy of the Romuléon, a work drawn from several classical and Christian authors that tells the story of Rome and the Romans from the time of Romulus and Remus to Constantine the Great. The original compilation, in Latin, was made by Benvenuto da Imola between 1361 and 1364, but in the 1460s, in response to the courtly taste for histories and chronicles in the vernacular, two writers independently undertook to translate the work into French (see S. McKendrick, 'The Romuléon and the MSS of Edward IV', Proceedings of the 1992 Harlaxton Symposium, 1994, pp.149-69). The present miniature illustrated a chapter of the translation of Jean Miélot, resident of Lille between 1453 and 1472, who was in the service of Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy, from around 1448 until the duke's death in 1467. Only six complete manuscripts of Miélot's translation survive, all of them luxury volumes made in the southern Netherlands for members or friends of the Burgundian court. The present miniature was part of a group of fourteen from the same manuscript, sold at Christi … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Bible, Psalms)
Ulm: Johann Zainer, [c. 1480]. [293 of 296 leaves; lacking first 2 leaves of the Calendar, and final blank. [•6 ••8 a-x8 y12 z8 A-L8 M3]. 1 vols. 8vo; 111 x 90 mm. An Incunable of the Utmost Rarity. Johann Zainer the Elder (fl. 1472-93) established the first printing press at Ulm, where his first book is dated 1473. This pocket psalter by Zainer is undated; the colophon gives only the printer's name and the city in which it was printed. ISTC gives a conjectural date of around 1480. The book's handy but fragile format, a thick octavo that would have been easily portable for late fifteenth-century users, doubtless guaranteed a low survival rate. Indeed the few copies which have survived are often incomplete fragments, or in poor condition. ISTC gives the following locations: France: Strasbourg BNU (imperfect, wanting Commune sanctorum); Germany: Bamberg SB; Berlin SB; Fulda HLB; Leipzig DB/Buch (fragment, missing); München BSB (2, imperfect); Stuttgart WLB (3); U.S.A: Washington DC, Washington Cathedral Library (this copy) The present copy -- the only copy in America -- is complete, save for the first two leaves of the Calendar, and the blank leaf at the end. Goff Suppl. P1041a; H 13475*; C 4927; GW M36206; ISTC No.: ip01041500. Bound in 18th-century paper boards, with remnant of morocco spine label, edges stained red. Spine defective and covers rubbed, but binding is sound; several leaves bear stubs at outer edge from former index tabs; first leaf of Psalter extended at inner margin; final two leaves slightly waterstained; some browning and occasional stains; text block seri … [Click Below for Full Description]

ZILBERTI, FRANCESCO:
1480. Two hand-written letters (22 x 30 cm) written in Italian (mercantesca), ink on paper. The first is dated Pera, March 1480 (duplicating letter sent from [Foça February 29, 1480 ?]) comprising one and a quarter pages. The second is dated Foça March 5, 1480 comprising one page. Both on single sheets with manuscript address panels penned on verso, old folds, well preserved. Both letters were sent to Constantinople addressed to Marco Bembo, a Venetian nobleman and merchant who at the time was based in Pera, by his business partner Francesco Zilberti. The letters were written at Foça (close to today's Izmir) on the Aegean coast of Anatolia. Zilberti reports about the negotiations for purchasing a cargo of alum, a valuable commodity used as a mordant for textile dyes which for centuries had been imported into Europe from the Byzantine Empire. After the Turks captured Constantinople in 1453, alum became more difficult to acquire. A decade later large quantities of alum were found in the vicinity of Tolfa, a small town not far from Rome. The mines were owned by the Papacy which was determined to ensure maximum profits from this source. The Papacy formed cartels of miners, bankers, refiners, and traders, and thereby tried to create a monopoly on alum in Europe. However, the Venetians, having signed a peace treaty with Mehmet II in 1479, continued to trade in Turkish alum, ignoring threats of deportation. In the first letter Zilberti explains that a dispatch of a cargo of alum has been delayed because the local pasha is away observing a local religious holiday bayram. Zilberti d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Smooth spine attractively gilt tooled, title and imprint in gilt on double lettering-piece. A good copy, marginal soiling and staining to opening leaves. The outer blank margin of the last quires waterstained.Provenance: the Florentine humanist Benedetto Varchi (1503-1565; ownership inscription on the recto of first leaf, marginalia and underlining in the first two quires in his own hand); the Florentine diplomat Pandolfo Attavanti (sixteenth-century ownership inscription on the recto of first leaf); the Tuscan scholar Alemanno Orsucci (eighteenth-century ownership inscription on the recto of first leaf); Kenneth Rapoport (ex-libris on the front pastedown). First edition of Greek historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus' narrative of the history of Rome from its beginnings to the First Punic War, in a precious copy once owned by the Florentine humanist Benedetto Varchi.

[ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT]
France: np, 1480. First edition. STUNNING FULL-PAGE MINIATURE OF SAINT BARNABAS FROM A 15TH-CENTURY BOOK OF HOURS. The full-page miniature on vellum, with fine detail and rich color, depicts the prophet dressed in a blue robe with a gold cape, (presumably) in the act of preaching with (as he is usually shown) a book cradled in his left hand. He stands before columns and arches revealing a mountainous landscape and blue sky in the distance. The image is framed by gold pillars and with "Sancte Barnaba" written in gold on a blue background in the base. Saint Barnabas, "son of consolation... stands first on the list of prophets and teachers of the church at Antioch" (Easton's Bible Dictionary). The reverse, with one large two-line decorated initial, contains the end of the text dedicated to Saint Matthias, with the heading for Saint Barnabas. Judging from the style, the leaf appears to be from a French Book of Hours, c.1480. Beautifully matted and framed under UV-protecting museum glass. Leaf size: 4.25x5.75 in (108x148mm); framed: 11.25x13.25 in. "Sancte Barnaba" at the base partially obscured by smudge; a few very minor spots of soiling. A beautiful, colorful leaf with sharp detail in outstanding condition. Very Good.

Platina, Bartolomaeus.
1480. 4to. (93) ff., wanting terminal blank. Bound in contemporary ornate blind-tooled calf over wooden boards, spine with two raised bands; remains of two metallic clasps with engraved devices. Initials calligraphed in red and blue throughout. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Scarce early edition of this landmark work of Western civilization: the first printed book on food and drink. "De Honesta Voluptate" is also an invaluable source for cultural historians tracing early trade routes with the East: Platina's use and discussion of ginger, rice, cinnamon, saffron, cloves, oranges, and so on indicates the already substantial commercial relationship between East and West by the mid-15th century, primarily via Arab traders. A classic text of the Renaissance, no other complete copy in an early binding has been seen in auction records of the last 50 years. - Platina, the future librarian of the Vatican, composed the present work in the early 1460s while on a summer retreat in the hills of Tuscany. The ten books of "De Honesta Voluptate" discuss the origin, properties, and uses of culinary ingredients ranging from herbs and spices to fruits, vegetables, and birds, beasts, and fish. Platina records some 240 recipes employing these ingredients; yet his guide is more than a mere cook-book, and contains much advice on 'the art of good living': of eating and drinking in moderation, of the value of sexual intercourse, and so on. - As the only such printed record of its time, the text of "De Honesta Voluptate" is a fascinating source on the use of exotics in European cooking at an earl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Juvenal is credited with sixteen known poems divided among five books; all are in the Roman genre of satire, which, at its most basic in the time of the author, comprised a wide-ranging discussion of society and social mores in dactylic hexameter. The sixth and tenth satires are some of the most renowned works in the collection.•The author makes constant allusion to history and myth as a source of object lessons or exemplars of particular vices and virtues. Coupled with his dense and elliptical Latin, these tangential references indicate that the intended reader of the Satires was highly educated. The Satires a … [Click Below for Full Description]
