[ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT]
France: np, 1480. 1st Edition. Beautiful, richly colored illuminated 15th-century manuscript leaf containing the beginning of the popular prayer to Mary, "Obsecro te" ("I beseech you"). With miniature of Mary and the baby Jesus in the initial "O" and miniature of man at the bottom border. The historiated "O" (32x37mm, 6 lines), featuring Mary and Jesus, is painted with a blue outline surrounded by reddish-pink with gold leaves. Mary and Jesus have fine gold lines in their hair. The bottom figure (35x61mm), possibly the donor, has gold strands of hair and is placed before a stunning blue and green background. The text and images are handsomely framed on three sides by a brown border. The verso contains 17 lines of text. Full leaf size: 110x155mm (approx. 4.25 x 6 in). France: late 15th-century (c.1480). A few light spots, pieces of matting tape at top edge of verso (not near text); otherwise fine. An exquisite leaf with outstanding color. The text of the leaf (in Latin) contains the entire first part of the "Obsecro te", beginning with: Obsecro the, Domina Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, pietate plenissima, summi regis filia, Mater gloriosissima, Mater orphanorum, consolatio desolatorum... [I beseech thee, Lady Holy Mary, Mother of God, most full of piety, daughter of the Most High King, Mother most glorious, Mother of orphans, consolation of the desolate...] to "Ecce ancilla Domini. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum." ["Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done according to thy word."] (Full text available upon request.). Very Good.

FRENCH ILLUMINATOR
France: circa, 1480. Illuminated leaf on vellum, 145 x 95 mm., with one 2-line initial and eight 1-line initials in gold on alternate red and blue grounds, eight line-fillers in the same colours, decorative panel border on each side of leaf decorated with red and blue flowers and acanthus leaves; 16 lines of text in a lettre bâtarde; in very good condition. A fine and delicately decorated leaf from a fifteenth-century French Book of Hours. The text comes from the Penitential Psalms, the illuminated initial 'B' opening Psalm 31 'Beati quorum remissae sunt iniquitates et quorum tecta sunt peccata', ('Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered'). Usually following the Hours of the Cross and the Hour of the Holy Spirit, these Psalms were recited to help one resist temptation to commit any of the Seven Deadly Sins. The leaf is from the collection of the medical bibliographer Sir Edward Ford and the original French bookseller's mount still bears his stamp.

FRENCH ARTIST
France: circa, 1480. Large illuminated leaf on vellum, 342 x 262 mm., with a miniature upper right, 92 x 74 mm., depicting Christ with his hands held in prayer, framed in gold, with fourteen 2-line initials in gold on red and blue ground, infilled with white penwork decoration; intricately decorated panel border on all sides composed of coloured flowers and leaves on black hairline stems enclosing text on all; 28 lines of gothic text in double columns; the verso is stamped "Edward Ford" at lower left. A grand illuminated leaf, evidently from a most impressive Missal, with a fine miniature representing the Feast of the Assumption, depicting Christ with a golden halo dressed in red robes with his hands held together in prayer. The craggy landscape is planted with lush, green trees. The leaf is richly illuminated with a fine border on all sides and fine illuminated initials. The Missal was introduced in the Carolingian period and by the thirteenth century had supplanted the older Sacramentary, combining in one volume the various components for the performance of the mass. Its development was prompted by the custom of saying private masses and low masses, which were performed by the celebrant alone. This leaf is from the collection of Sir Edward Ford, author of Bibliography of Australian Medicine 1790-1900.

. 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 vo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Die Verbindung der Häuser Habsburg und Burgund durch die Heirat zwischen Maria von Burgund, der einzigen Tochter und Erbin Karls des Kühnen, und dem Sohn Kaiser Friedrichs III., Maximilian, war trotz dahinter stehender politischer Erwägungen ein romantisch-idyllisches Intermezzo und führte zu persönlichem Liebes- und Familienglück. Im Zuge dieser Verbindung aus dem Jahre 1477 entstand eine der schönsten Bilderhandschriften des burgundischen Fürstenhauses: Das Berliner Stundenbuch der Maria von Burgund und Kaiser Maximilians. Alle Miniaturen umgibt farbiger Bordürenschmuck, der in unerschöpflicher Phantasie Ornament und Naturbeobachtung verbindet, sodass aus Akanthus und Blumen, Schmetterlingen und Früchten sowie den Initialen von Maria und Maximilian eine unvergleichliche Pracht entsteht. Diese in viele Bordüren eingestreuten Initialen sowie die eingefügten Wappen lassen keinen Zweifel daran, dass die beiden den kleinen Band besaßen.

FRENCH ARTIST
France,: circa, 1480.. Large illuminated leaf on vellum, 342 x 262 mm., with a miniature upper right, 92 x 74 mm., depicting Christ with his hands held in prayer, framed in gold, with fourteen 2-line initials in gold on red and blue ground, infilled with white penwork decoration; intricately decorated panel border on all sides composed of coloured flowers and leaves on black hairline stems enclosing text on all; 28 lines of gothic text in double columns; the verso is stamped "Edward Ford" at lower left. A grand illuminated leaf, evidently from a most impressive Missal, with a fine miniature representing the Feast of the Assumption, depicting Christ with a golden halo dressed in red robes with his hands held together in prayer. The craggy landscape is planted with lush, green trees. The leaf is richly illuminated with a fine border on all sides and fine illuminated initials.The Missal was introduced in the Carolingian period and by the thirteenth century had supplanted the older Sacramentary, combining in one volume the various components for the performance of the mass. Its development was prompted by the custom of saying private masses and low masses, which were performed by the celebrant alone.This leaf is from the collection of Sir Edward Ford, author of Bibliography of Australian Medicine 1790-1900.

ANTONINUS FLORENTINUS
Venetiis: Johannes de Colonia and Johannes Manthen, 30 March, 1480. Hardcover. A Manual Containing the Best WaysTo Interrogate Penitents of Various Ranks. 235 x 171 mm (9 1/4 x 6 3/4"). 100 unnumbered leaves (of 102; without first and last blank). Double column, 40 lines of text, gothic type. Modern vellum over stiff boards, flat spine with ink titling in antique style. In a (lightly rubbed) vellum-lipped suede-lined slipcase. Capitals struck with red, paragraph marks in red or blue, three-line red or blue hand-painted initials throughout, and three six-line initials. First leaf of text with 17th century monastic ownership inscription. Goff A-807; BMC V, 236. Minor marginal thumbing and smudging throughout (two quires with more noticeable wax[?] stains at bottom, but well away from text), first gathering with four tiny wormholes in the gutter margin, otherwise excellent, the text still fresh and rather bright, the margins extremely ample, and the binding unworn. This is a rubricated copy of an uncommon edition of a guide for confessors, written by one of the most important moral theologians of the day, a man whose writings on Christian ethics were ranked with those of Aquinas. Antoninus, the Dominican Archbishop of Florence (1389-1459, canonized 1523) was one of the most revered figures of his time. Pious, simple in appearance and demeanor, self-denying, and devoted to his office, he displayed tireless courage in helping the Florentine populace through the plague and famine in 1448 and 1453, an effort of will that provided only the most public evidence of his abiding faith … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antonia Ida Fontana - Sebastiano Gentile - Angelo Cattaneo
Vallecchi. New. Hardcover. <p>The extraordinary antiquities fund of the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze (BNCF) conserves a work of exceptional beauty and historical interest, known as the “Grande Tolomeo” or “Codice Magliabechiano”. It is a manuscript collection of geographical maps based on the studies of Ptolemy and termed “Cosmographia Jacobo Angelo interprete, cum tabulis Henrici Martelli Germani”. The work consists of 39 plates and respective comments, that is, the introductory pages of each section which occupy 72 complete sheets of the codex for a total of 144 pages, in addition to the initial pages with dedication and incipit. Made in Florence by Enrico Martello Germano around 1480, it is one of the world’s most impressive and fascinating Renaissance geographical codices in existence. Not only an aesthetic masterpiece, this work constitutes a document of unique interest in the history of cartography, marking a decisive watershed. While on one hand, it is a painstaking elaboration of ancient Greek knowledge, ignored for a millennium and updated with then recent European navigations in the Atlantic and in eastern seas, on the other hand it is also the last collection of geographical maps before the discovery of America. An extensive introductory commentary thoroughly sets the work in history and in its own context, also by means of comparisons with other plates of analogous works. The result is an overall picture of the knowledge of the time, and of how the science of cartography took shape. Critical Apparatus Sebastiano Gen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Israel van MECKENEM (1450 - 1503)
Bulino, circa 1480/85, monogrammato in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con i ritocchi a bulino delle ombre. Magnifica prova di questa rara incisione, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, completa della linea marginale, minimo restauro all?angolo superiore destro, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L?opera rappresenta una delle cinque vergini stolte. Il tema è affrontato in una parabola evangelica raccontata da Matteo, in cui dieci fanciulle andarono incontro allo sposo portando con se delle lampade; ma cinque di esse improvvidamente non presero l?olio da bruciare. Quando a mezzanotte giunse lo sposo, le cinque vergini savie entrarono nella casa, mentre le altre trovarono la porta chiusa. La parabola delle vergini savie e stolte rappresenta la metafora del Giudizio Universale, con cui Gesù invitava ad essere sempre pronti per la Seconda Venuta. Le vergini savie vengono rappresentate con la fiamma della lampada accesa, mentre quelle stolte con la lampada spenta e capovolta. Israel van Meckenem iniziò la sua carriera nella bottega del padre, orafo ed incisore. La sua attività ebbe un notevole sviluppo lavorando a fianco del Maestro E.S., celebre incisore conosciuto solamente attraverso il monogramma con cui firmava i lavori. Il van Meckenem producendo oltre cinquecento lavori fu uno dei più conosciuti ed importanti incisori del Quattrocento. L?opera della vergine stolta deriva da Martin Schongauer, che fu il primo artista a creare nella grafica una serie di lavori dedicati al tema, che era invece molto f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ulm: Johann Zainer, [c. 1480] - Johann Zainer the Elder (fl. 1472-93) established the first printing press at Ulm, where his first book is dated 1473. Zainer's little pocket psalter is undated; the colophon gives only the printer's name and the city. ISTC gives a conjectural date of around 1480. The book's handy but fragile format doubtless guaranteed a low survival rate, and 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 (BIBLE, PSALMS) 8vo; 111 x 90 mm.

Rubrics in red, recto with one two-line initial, one one-line initial and one line filler in colors and burnished gold, and a quarter panel border with blue and gold acanthus leaves and sprays of red roses and blue violets, VERSO WITH A FULL BORDER containing much swirling vegetation partly on geometric grounds of blue, red, or brushed gold, one gold circle at the bottom containing a large flapping bird, the border ENCLOSING AN ARCH-TOPPED MINIATURE OF SAINT EUSTACE (measuring approximately 55 x 40 mm.), beneath the miniature a four-line "M" in brushed gold on a red ground. A hint of soil and wrinkling, but generally very well preserved, with little or no erosion in the paint and gold, and with especially ample margins. Saint Eustace, patron of hunters, is frequently depicted at the moment when a stag appeared to him with a cross between his horns. Our artist, however, has chosen to portray one of the long-suffering saint's worst moments, when his two little sons were savaged by a wolf and lion, as told in the story from Jacobus de Voragine's "Golden Legend." The episode took place at a river crossing, and in our leaf, the saint recreates that moment, standing in the river and dominating our scene. He raises his hands in alarm, but also in the early Christian orant position of prayer, signifying his acceptance of God's testing of his fortitude. Meanwhile, the two small, limp sons are in the maws of t … [Click Below for Full Description]
