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]

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]

[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]

"The illuminator, Antonio da Monza (active ca. 1480/1505), brought a Renaissance fascination with antiquity to the art of manuscript illumination at the end of the 15th and early 16th century. Identified through his signature on a miniature from a liturgical book made for Pope Alexander VI and now in Vienna, he was a native of Monza, outside of Milan, and a member of the Franciscan Order. Antonio's artistic style was influenced by Leonardo. Scholars have attributed to him several liturgical books, as well as some miniatures in the Sforza Hours and in Antonio Minuti's 'Life of Muzio Attendolo'. The recent discovery of villa of the Golden House of Nero and its Fourth Style wall paintings influenced Antonio's work, supplying him with a rich visual vocabulary of ancient motifs." - Getty Museum.

Identified through his signature on a miniature from a liturgical book made for Pope Alexander VI and now in Vienna, he was a native of Monza, outside of Milan, and a member of the Franciscan Order. Antonio's artistic style was influenced by Leonardo. Scholars have attributed to him several liturgical books, as well as some miniatures in the Sforza Hours and in Antonio Minuti's 'Life of Muzio Attendolo'. The recent discovery of villa of the Golden House of Nero and its Fourth Style wall paintings influenced Antonio's work, supplying him with a rich visual vocabulary of ancient motifs." - Getty Museum.

MASS OF ST. GREGORY
1480. Gregory, the papal saint, kneels celebrating Mass with an attendant as the naked figure of Christ appears to him on the altar surrounded by the Instruments of the Passion. 108 mm. X 60 mm, sixteen lines of text in brown ink in a lettre batarde on the verso. From the collection of the Marquess of Bute, formerly loosely enclosed in Marquess of Bute MS. 96 (G. 22). ?According to legend, the sixth-century Pope Gregory the Great was celebrating Mass when one of his assistants doubted the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. During the service, the Saviour himself miraculously appeared at the altar, allaying any doubts as to the true nature of the Communion wafer. This miniature accompanies a prayer to the Eucharist said at the Elevation; this picture translates the prayer's message into visual form. Christ is shown as the Man of Sorrows, bleeding and exhausted, nearly dead; he is surrounded by the Instruments of the Passion.? Roger S. Wieck, Painted Prayers, the Book of Hours in Medieval and Renaissance Art (1997), p. 104.

VARRO, M Terentius
Jerome, Epistolae, 1480. Folio, ff. (iv) 46. Roman letter, a little Greek, guide letters, spaces blank. Extensive early marginalia in at least two early hands (one contemp) throughout, final blank page filled with annotations in Italian (c.1600); uniform light age browning, waterstains to edges of some ll., mostly marginal but slightly affecting the text in places, ancient marginal ink splashes to a couple of ll. A very interesting, not unattractive and well margined copy, if well used at an early date. In modern vellum over boards. A rare edition from an almost equally rare press; the identity of the printer is unknown, the style of his Greek type may indicate he came from Venice; the total known output of the press is only six titles, however the layout and typeface are handsome and accomplished. An early edition of Varro's pioneering work on Latin grammar (including inflexion and syntax) or more accurately of books V to X (of 25) which are all that have come down to us. It was regarded as a work of considerable importance by no lesser authorities than Cicero (the dedicatee), Quintilian and St Augustine, who wonders at the author's learning in the De Civ. Dei, book VI; the text was edited for the press by Pompinius Laetus and Francisus Rolandellus and first printed in that form by an unknown press in Venice in 1478. It has a comprehensive index. "Varro's treatise is the earliest extant Roman work on grammar. This great work, which was finished before Cicero's death in 43 BC, owes much to the stoic teaching of Aelius Stilo, and also to that of a later grammarian who combin … [Click Below for Full Description]
