AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF SHOWING PENTECOST, WITH FOUR INSET MINIATURES DEPICTING VARIOUS ASPECTS OF THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Paris, ca. 1480. n. This leaf presents Pentecost, the usual image to begin the Hours of the Holy Spirit, in a highly creative way. The main scene of the Holy Spirit descending on the Virgin and assembled Apostles is conventional: the Virgin is at the center, with Peter and John the Evangelist flanking her on either side, and the other Apostles behind them. But the rest of the leaf has an unusual design. In place of a floral border with acanthus and bezants, we have four additional scenes that portray various episodes of the Resurrection, which, according to Christian tradition, occurred exactly 50 days before Pentecost. In the largest of those scenes, the artist has used the "L"-shaped space next to the left edge and bottom left of the main miniature in an inventive way, showing Christ rising into the air in the long vertical element of the "L," while employing the horizontal part of the letter space at bottom to depict his amazed followers, as they witness the event from the ground below. The other three scenes making up the rest of the very eventful frame show the Road to Emmaus (where Christ reveals himself to two of his disciples), then "Noli me tangere" (a favorite image of Western art, where Christ appears to Mary Magdalene and speaks the words "Do not touch me"), and finally the Incredulity of Thomas (where Christ invites the "doubting" Apostle Thomas to touch his wounds).. 174 x 123 mm. (7 x 4 3/4"). Single column, 19 lines on verso (five on recto), in a gothic book hand.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH AN HISTORIATED INITIAL DEPICTING SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST AND A SMALL MINIATURE OF SAINT ANTHONY, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
France, ca. 1480. 155 x 108 mm. (6 1/8 x 4 1/4"). Single column, 18 lines in a fine bâtarde hand. Attractively matted. Rubrics in blue, a two-line initial in brushed gold on a red ground, BOTH SIDES WITH A PANEL BORDER of alternating squares of purple with sprays of blue violets and brushed gold with pink lotus flowers, recto with AN EIGHT-LINE HISTORIATED INITIAL in red and brushed gold on a blue and gold ground DEPICTING JOHN THE BAPTIST, VERSO WITH A SMALL MINIATURE (measuring approximately 35 mm. square) OF SAINT ANTHONY. A little soiling and wrinkling to edges, tiny erosion to paint in the larger scene, otherwise a clean, smooth, altogether pleasing leaf. John the Baptist is shown here standing in a field in his ragged tunic, apparently lecturing the small white lamb lying on the open book held in the saint's left hand. Saint Anthony the Great, the hermit and Desert Father venerated as the founder of monasticism (and the patron saint of basket makers, brush makers, gravediggers, and those afflicted with skin diseases), is shown with a long beard and monk's robes.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH AN OUTSTANDING MINIATURE DEPICTING SAINT DENIS WITH HIS SEVERED HEAD, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Paris, ca. 1480. n. This is the most beautifully painted miniature in the present catalogue, and its paint and gold are in a remarkable state of preservation. Its rich colors and fine detail are the work of an obviously talented Parisian illuminator. The style can be attributed to an accomplished follower of the celebrated Maître François (about whom, see item #401, above). Given the stylistic qualities here, it is likely that this follower could be the so-called Master of Jacques de Besançon, often called the "Chief Associate" of Maître François and in his own right one of the most highly sought-after artists of the day. The precision seen in the application of paint, the convincing portrayal of attire and landscape, the discerning judgment in color choice, the intelligence of the design--all these point to the possibility that our miniature was done by an artist of the first rank. The central scene depicts Saint Denis a short time after his execution by decapitation when, according to legend, his corpse miraculously rose from the grave and carried its severed head down from Montmartre (the hill seen in the background of this image) for a distance of several kilometers. The spot at which the headless martyr finally stopped later became the site of the Abbey of Saint Denis (and present-day Basilica of Saint Denis), one of the most important religious monuments of the Middle Ages.. 135 x 88 mm.

AN ESPECIALLY FINE, BEAUTIFULLY PAINTED ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN AND FRENCH
Rouen, ca. 1480s. This lovely manuscript was very probably created at the leading atelier in Rouen at a time when that city was producing the most sumptuous manuscripts in Europe, and it is fine in every respect--from the aesthetic achievement of the scribes and artists involved, to its extremely pleasing condition. The illumination here strongly suggests that the manuscript was the product of the workshop of the Master of the Échevinage de Rouen (once known as the Master of the Geneva Latini), generally recognized as the most successful Norman illuminator of the period. And the work is of sufficiently high quality that the painting could have been done by the master himself. Active in Rouen for a quarter century, beginning in the late 1450s, the artist painted a substantial number of chronicles, including perhaps a dozen copies of the Bouquechardière, Jean de Courcy's ancient history of the Rouen region; these were done for municipal patrons, or "échevins," from which our painter takes his name. While he earned great prestige for providing these large manuscripts, his workshop made its way by issuing Books of Hours like this one. His work is characterized by detailed and richly colored miniatures occupied by figures with expressive eyes and carefully individuated skin tones (the women's faces are alabaster, the men's tend toward stucco). His compositions have distinct similarities (see, for example, Christopher de Hamel's comparison of several key details of four of the master's Nativity scenes in "History of Illuminated Manuscripts"). And the use of gray (not blue) acant … [Click Below for Full Description]

Modern red velvet, in a fine red morocco folding box with gilt lettering. Rubrics in red, a great many one-line initials either in burnished gold or blue (both with penwork embellishment), quite a number of two-line (and a handful of four- and five-line) initials in burnished gold on a blue and pink ground with white tracery, a total of 21 VERY LARGE INITIALS (six or seven lines high) ALWAYS ACCOMPANIED BY A FULL OR THREE-QUARTER BORDER of acanthus, fruit, and burnished gold ivy leaves, EIGHT VERY CHARMING HISTORIATED INITIALS, AND FOUR FULL-PAGE MINIATURES (the historiated initials accompanied by one of the three-quarter borders mentioned above, and the miniatures always with a facing page containing one of the full borders as well as a seven-line initial).

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]

It contains in the margins the 'glossa ordinaria' of Walafridus Strabo (a writer of the ninth century), and an interlinear gloss by Anselmus (apparently Anselm of Laon, who flourish c. 1100). A Rusch produced this Bible for A. Koburger of Nuremberg. This Bible contains 1208 printed leaves. The signatures are peculiar. They are not composed of any regular succession of letters, but repeat the same letter throughout a great number of sheets. Possibly they represent the seven or eight presses at which the work proceeded.This bible contains the First Printing of the Glossa Ordinaria: the authoritative Church-sanctioned commentary on the Bible. Incorporating 600 years of Biblical interpretation by the greatest Church Fathers. This is the Largest Incunable Ever printed. The publication of this Bible was the most ambitious printing project of its time, requiring the international cooperation of 3 of the greatest printers of the 15th century.

[Saint Augustine]
A single leaf (130 x 100mm) from a manuscript written on vellum, on the recto the first five lines in red ink, followed by a 3-line illuminated initial "G" in red, blue and gold and ten lines in brown ink, with an historiated border of scrolls, strawberries and a wyvern on a gilt ground, close cropped at fore-edge, the verso with fifteen lines in brown ink. This leaf is highly unsusual in that while it is a French manuscript it is written in the German language. The text is a prayer by Saint Augustine on the forgiving of sins, probably from a Book of Hours, but possibly simply from a book of miscellaneous prayers. Such manuscripts, produced in France for the German market, are not unknown but they are very rare indeed compared with the standard Livre d'Heures.

Type. - Erste und einzige niederländische Inkunabelausgabe, eines der ersten gedruckten Geschichtswerke in Holland. Die lat. Originalausgabe des berühmten Handbuches der Weltgeschichte erschien 1474 bei Therhoernen in Köln. - Der aus Würzburg stammende Drucker Jan Veldener, der auch Form- und Typenschneider war, ließ sich 1475 in Löwen nieder, wo er eine lat. Ausgabe des Fasciculus druckte. Um 1478 siedelte er nach Utrecht über, wo er die vorliegende Übersetzung verlegte. "Die Formschnitte derselben zeigen Veldeners Kunst in ihrer höchsten Entfaltung. Sie übertreffen durch Anzahl und Reichtum noch die Illustrationen der eben besprochenen Ausgabe [1475] bei weitem. Bekannt sind von ihnen besonders die interessanten Rankenbordüren, die man lange Zeit für die frühesten, graphisch hergestellten Pflanzenleisten gehalten hat . Eine Initiale G und die Umrandung des schönen, neuen Druckerzeichens mit dem wappenhaltenden Löwen sind im selben Stile gehalten . Zum ersten Male treffen wir in einer Fasciculus-Ausgabe Darstellungen richtiger Handlungen an . Von den Illustrationen des Anhangs sind besonders die zahlreichen Wappen erwähnenswert, die hier zum ersten Male in grösserem Umfange in ein gedrucktes Formschnittbuch eingefügt wurden. Es sind ganz kleine Schildchen, in die nur in Umrissen die Embleme der Könige von Frankreich, der Herzöge von Brabant, Holland, Burgund und anderer eingezeichnet sind."

A THOROUGHLY ORIGINAL BOOK OF HOURS, THIS CHARMING MANUSCRIPT WAS ALMOST CERTAINLY A MARRIAGE OR BETROTHAL PRESENT FOR THE COUPLE WHO COMMISSIONED IT. Illuminated manuscript on parchment in Latin and French, France, Amiens, c. 1480-1490. 160 x 110 mm. 94 folios on parchment, ruled in red, written in dark brown ink in an angular bâtarde script on 23 lines, 1-line initials in red, blue, and liquid gold, large initials in blue and liquid gold acanthus, scrolled, on red grounds, SIXTEEN LARGE MINIATURES, all with FULL BORDERS, some very unusual, containing flowers, birds, geese, owls, grotesques, some in semi-grisaille. BINDING: Bound by Capé in brown morocco, tooled and stamped with fillets and flowers in the corners, lined with red morocco, edges gilt, boxed. ILLUSTRATION: Densely illuminated with quite a large cycle of miniatures, all surrounded by imaginative borders, our manuscript displays an inventive style, characterized by an expressive use of harmonious, high-key colors and a vigorous manner. Features are outlined in black ink and heightened in liquid gold. Articulated in broad areas of color, the diminutive figures display large eyes and animated gestures. This is probably the work of an artist trained originally in Lorraine, perhaps in Metz, before moving to Picardy where he worked on commission for various families near Amiens. Surely made on the occasion of a marriage or a betrothal, our Book of Hours portrays the couple dressed in the costume of the high bourgeoisie and praying before the Virgin and Child, accompanied by musical angels, at the beginning of a pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Limitiert Weltweit 1480 Exemplare. Kommentarband in Deutsch. Das Book of Kells enthält so manche Miniatur des frühen Mittelalters, die zu den schönsten zählt, die je geschaffen wurde. Bis auf zwei sind alle Seiten dieser Handschrift mit einer fast unbeschreiblichen Fülle symbolträchtiger und mystischer Malerei ausgeschmückt. Die Handschrift beeindruckt sowohl in der Anzahl als auch in der Größe der Pergamentseiten, die durchschnittlich die Maße von 33 x 25 cm aufweisen. Es wurde nicht für den täglichen Gebrauch und auch nicht für das Studium gefertigt, sondern sollte ein geheiligtes Werk sein und an hohen Festtagen auf dem Altar das Wort Gottes repräsentieren. 680 Seiten, Format: 33 x 25 cm, Einband aus feinstem weißen Leder, mit Schmuckkassette Das Book of Kells wurde vermutlich im Kloster Iona um das Jahr 800 von unbekannten, genialen Künstlern geschaffen. Ein erster Hinweis auf seine Existenz findet sich in einem Bericht von 1007 über einen Diebstahl in der Kirche von Kells, in dem das Buch \"Das große Evangeliar des Columcille, die Hauptreliquie der westlichen Welt\" genannt wird.Bald darauf wurde das in Kells vergrabene Buch aufgefunden. Es blieb in Kells, bis man es während der Regierungszeit Cromwells aus Sicherheitsgründen nach Dublin brachte. Um 1661 übergab es Henry Jones, Bischof von Meath, dem Trinity College. Seither wird es in der Bibliothek des College in Dublin gehütet.Das Book of Kells enthält vor allem die vier Evangelien. Aber auch andere Texte fanden Aufnahme: etwa am Anfang der Handschrift Kanontafeln, die die Konkordanzverzeichnisse enthalten, die v … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Maynus de Mayneriis]
Gouda, Gerard Leeu, 3 juni 1480. 27,5 x 19,5 cm. Med avslutningen av den tredje dialogen "De stella transmontana" och början av den fjärde, "De hespero et Lucifero / Dyalogus quartus". Träsnitt inom enkel ramlinje föreställande två stjärnor, bladet med en stor röd handtextad initial och en mindre samt talrika typografiska accenter textade i rött och blått.. För en svensk läsare är "Dialogus creaturarum" (Skapelsens sedelärande samtal) liktydigt med den första boken som trycktes i Sverige (1483). Här föreligger däremot ett blad av den allra första upplagan, tryckt tre år tidigare av den holländske boktryckaren och utgivaren Gheraert (Gerard) Leeu. Han var född i Gouda omkring 1445-50 och dog i Antwerpen 1492. Sin första bok tryckte han i Gouda 1477, där han utgav närmare 70 tryck fram till 1484. Det året flyttade han sin verksamhet till Antwerpen, där han till slut dog för ett knivhugg från en av sina sättare! Den illustrerade fabelsamlingen "Dialogus creaturarum" tryckte han i flera upplagor, däribland denna 'editio princeps' 1480. Bokens 104 blad innehåller 122 träsnitt som är ovanliga på så vis att de faktiskt illustrerar texten, och inte bara dekorerar sidorna. Goudaupplagan av 1480 följdes tre år senare av Johann Snells stockholmsupplaga. Även Goudaupplagan är en stor raritet, som endast förekommit vid enstaka tillfällen på marknaden de senaste 200 åren. Kungl. biblioteket i Stockholm, som naturligt nog intresserat sig för allt som har med Dialogus creaturarum att göra, äger visserligen två exemplar, men båda är ofullständiga. William Morris hade ett exemplar av boken i … [Click Below for Full Description]
