Hyginus, Caius Julius (fl. 2nd century)
Venice: Erhard Ratdolt, 14 October, 1482. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION of Hyginus' "Poeticon Astronomicon". Quarto: Illustrated with 47 half-page woodcuts of the constellations and the planets personified. The text of Hyginus was first published in an unillustrated edition in Ferrara in 1475. A very good copy in 18th c. stiff vellum. The initial blank is soiled and stained. Light stains to top of second leaf and leaves d1-2. Soiling to f1 and blank verso of final leaf, with faded inscription. The "Poeticon Astronomicon" (more correctly, the "Astronomica") is an ancient Roman work on the constellations chiefly based on the work of the Greek scientist Eratosthenes (3rd c. B.C.). The work was traditionally attributed to the first century writer C. Julius Hyginus, the Director of the Palatine Library under the Emperor Augustus, but the extant text is now believed, based on stylistic analysis, to be an abridgement of Hyginus' work made in the late second century. The fact that the order of the constellations in the poem follows precisely that of Ptolemy's "Almagest" further strengthens the case for a second century date. A remarkable aspect of Hyginus' text is his insistence on the use of astronomical models, in particular, a celestial globe, as an aid to teaching or explaining astronomical principles and phenomena, particularly for "discussions on the inter-relationships between the constellations and especially between the constellations and the celestial circles."(Lippincott p.4)Like Manilius' "Astronomicon" and Proclus' "Sphaera" (a text that Hyginus sought to improve upon), t … [Click Below for Full Description]

(INCUNABULA). A PRINTED LEAF FROM CAXTON'S FIRST EDITION OF THE POLYCRONICON IN ENGLISH
[Westminster: William Caxton, 1482]. 268 x 178 mm. (10 1/2 x 7"). 40 lines and headline, gothic type. Attractively matted. Paragraph flourishes, one two-line initial painted in red. Marginal annotations in red, apparently by the rubricator, one of them giving the date of 960. Duff 172; Goff H-267; STC 13438. Faint marginal dampstains (one entering a few lines of text on each side) a handful of small (but darker) spots, also in the margin, the leaf a little soft (but still quite attractive when viewed through its mat, which obscures almost all of the marginal imperfections). Not without faults, but about typical for Caxton leaves.From the press of England's first printer, this is a leaf from the "Polycronicon," a world history based principally on the Bible, written by the monk Ranulf Higden (or Higdon, ca. 1299-1363) of Chester. This popular work, originally in Latin, was first rendered into English by our translator, John of Trevisa, and his version is of considerable interest to scholars for its English usage. Caxton (ca. 1422-92) originally established a press in Bruges, where, in 1473, he issued the first book to be printed in English, the "Recuyell of the Historyes of Troye." In 1476 he settled at Westminster, where he printed more than 100 books, many of which he had edited or translated himself. For the "Polycronicon," Caxton revised the whole of the chronicle, continuing it up to the year 1460; this continuation is the only extant piece of Caxton's own composition. Our leaf, from Chapter Nine of the sixth book, relates the time at which Edgar, then "sixtene yere ol … [Click Below for Full Description]

Berenger of Landorra, Archbishop of Santiago de Compostela (circa 1262-1330), and Gregory of Vorau (ed. Matthias Farinator)
Strasbourg: 1482. Strasbourg: , 1482. FOURTH EDITION (first printed in 1477). . Folio: . Bound in contemporary blind-stamped calf over wooden boards from the bindery of the Augustinian monastery of St Zeno in Reichenhall (Upper Bavaria, active c. 1475-1528, EDBD w002516). The binding has been rebacked; the metal corner-pieces and perhaps a central boss have been removed. An original vellum label and shelf-mark are affixed to the front board. There is offsetting from now-removed manuscript pastedowns inside the boards, though there are still vellum manuscript strips used for spine lining. The text is in excellent condition throughout with trivial blemishes. The text is rubricated and there some nice are 3- to 8-line initials in red and/or blue, the first of which has marginal extensions.Provenance: A contemporary ownership inscription (obscured by ink) in red ink is to be found at the end of the table. "Ego cristianus [(?)] emi hunc librum decem solidis denariorum". The name is repeated on the penultimate leaf (also crossed through); Another inscription, "Cristiannus Shab 1491" is written on the same leaf. With the bookplates of Jean Furstenberg (1890-1982) and E.P. Goldschmidt (See his catalogue VII (1925), number 29). The arrival of printed books is so often regarded as one of the inaugural moments of the renaissance that it is sometimes forgotten that the first years of print also represented the last great flowering of the Middle Ages. The "Lumen Anime" (Light of the Soul), is testament to that. Formerly attributed to the Carmelite friar Mathias Farinator of Vienna … [Click Below for Full Description]

KNIGHTS HOSPITALLER
[Venice]: s.n., 1482. Late 19th-century vellum, flat spine lettered in manuscript, silk marker. ?First Edition: political intrigue on a grand scale. Seventh recorded copy.  This dispatch sets out the military and diplomatic condition of the Ottoman Empire in the summer of 1482, after Sultan Bayezid II suppressed the rebellion lead by his younger brother Djem (or Cem, 1459-95), who, in late July, fled to Rhodes seeking the protection of the Hospitallers. Grand Master Pierre d'Aubusson immediately dispatched knights to rescue Djem's wife and children from the mainland and offered to renew the war against Bayezid in exchange for perpetual peace with Christendom and territory in Greece and the Aegean for the Hospitallers. Djem refused, so d'Aubusson secretly signed a treaty with Bayezid for cash. In 1490 d'Aubusson transferred his "guest" to Rome. Pope Innocent VIII played host and extorted extravagant sums from Bayezid to keep his brother in custody.  Two other printings are known, both assigned to Cologne. Geographically, the Venetians would have had access to the text well before their northern neighbors. Of the three editions, a single example of one is held by a U.S. library. This important document is absent from the bibliographies of the Hospitallers. In good condition, bookplate of Charles-Henri-Auguste Schefer (1820-98), distinguished Orientalist, diplomat and bibliophile. ¶Schwoebel, The Shadow of the Crescent: The Renaissance Image of the Turk 202-3; Thuasne, Djem-Sultan fils de Mohammed II 68-72; ISTC io00089460; Goff I-171.

PECKHAM [or PECHAM], Johannes de, Archbishop of Canterbury (ca 1230-1292)
[Milan], Petrus de Corneno, [1482/1483?]. Small folio (270 x 196 mm), ff [30], with 77 woodcut diagrams in margins; lower outer portion of A1 recto [blank] restored, some small wormholes throughout, occasionally touching some letters but not affecting legibility, some marginal staining, overall a good unpressed copy, in later vellum, in a morocco box. First edition, rare, of the first publication on optics, and a crucial text that was studied by Leonardo da Vinci. Johannes de Peckham’s (England ca 1230-1292) Perspectiva communis, is illustrated with 77 woodcut diagrams depicting the human eye, the nature of vision, and the eye’s role in the representation of space. Published in Milan by Petrus de Corneno in the first years of the 1480s, this first edition is of particular importance to the history of art for its close connection to Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) during the artist’s period of activity in Milan. Leonardo’s friend, Fazio Cardan, ‘edited John Peckham’s Perspectiva communis, a major treatise on optics, which Leonardo had the opportunity on many occasions to study and discuss with him. It was through these readings and the long talks with Cardan that Leonardo expanded his thinking about perspective, mathematics, and the function of the eye. The eye was of particular importance to him, not only as an object of study in itself, but because it was the means by which all visible phenomena are brought into the mind’ (Sherwin Nuland, Leonardo da Vinci: A Life). Peckham’s work is considered the ‘the most widely used of all optical texts from the early fourteenth until th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Donnus Nicolaus GERMANUS (? - ante 1490)
Xilografia, 1482. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in splendida coloritura coeva, minimi restauri alla piega centrale perfettamente eseguiti, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rarissima carta a proiezione trapezoidale, tratta dall'edizione del 1486 della Geographia di Ulm. Donnus Nicolaus Germanus era un cartografo di origine tedesca attivo a Firenze nella seconda metà del XV secolo. Sconosciute sono le sue origini, ma il nome Donnus, diminutivo di Dominus, lascia intendere che si tratti di un monaco benedettino probabilmente originario di Reichenbach. Pioniere della cartografia, si dedicò allo studio della traduzione latina della Geographia di Tolomeo curata da Jacopo Angelo. Nel 1466 il Germanus (Nicolaus Laurentii), che lavorava a Firenze come cosmografo presentò in visione a Borso d'Este, duca di Ferrara, il manoscritto di una Geographia, come visto a base dell'edizione di Bologna del 1477. Nel 1468 Nicolaus produsse la sua terza edizione della Geographia, questa volta spostando la Groenlandia a nord della Scandinavia e l'Islanda a Nord Ovest, alla stessa latitudine. A partire dalle mappe di questa terza versione di Nicolaus, furono realizzate le edizioni a stampa della Geographia di Ulm del 1482 e 1486. Si tratta della prime edizioni stampate al di fuori dell'Italia. Il lavoro contiene 32 carte, delle quali cinque non di derivazione tolemaica, tutte realizzate, a differenza delle versioni italiane, in silografia. Le incisioni su legno sono di Johannes Schnitzer di Arnheim. L'opera è considerata come la più elaborata ed importante edizione … [Click Below for Full Description]

Donnus Nicolaus GERMANUS (? - ante 1490)
Xilografia, 1482. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in splendida coloritura coeva, minimi restauri alla piega centrale perfettamente eseguiti, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rarissima carta a proiezione trapezoidale, tratta dall'edizione del 1486 della Geographia di Ulm. Donnus Nicolaus Germanus era un cartografo di origine tedesca attivo a Firenze nella seconda metà del XV secolo. Sconosciute sono le sue origini, ma il nome Donnus, diminutivo di Dominus, lascia intendere che si tratti di un monaco benedettino probabilmente originario di Reichenbach. Pioniere della cartografia, si dedicò allo studio della traduzione latina della Geographia di Tolomeo curata da Jacopo Angelo. Nel 1466 il Germanus (Nicolaus Laurentii), che lavorava a Firenze come cosmografo presentò in visione a Borso d'Este, duca di Ferrara, il manoscritto di una Geographia, come visto a base dell'edizione di Bologna del 1477. Nel 1468 Nicolaus produsse la sua terza edizione della Geographia, questa volta spostando la Groenlandia a nord della Scandinavia e l'Islanda a Nord Ovest, alla stessa latitudine. A partire dalle mappe di questa terza versione di Nicolaus, furono realizzate le edizioni a stampa della Geographia di Ulm del 1482 e 1486. Si tratta della prime edizioni stampate al di fuori dell'Italia. Il lavoro contiene 32 carte, delle quali cinque non di derivazione tolemaica, tutte realizzate, a differenza delle versioni italiane, in silografia. Le incisioni su legno sono di Johannes Schnitzer di Arnheim. L'opera è considerata come la più elaborata ed importante edizione … [Click Below for Full Description]

ATHANASIUS
Vicenza, Leonardus Achates de Basilea, 1 Feb. 1482. In folio (cm. 28,8); sobria legatura in mezza pergamena; tassello con tit. in oro; carte 88. Bella copia. S. Atanasio, Padre e Dottore della Chiesa, il più celebre dei vescovi alessandrini e il più intrepido difensore della fede nicena contro l'eresia di Ario, che negava il mistero della SS. Trinità, nacque verso il 295 ad Alessandria d'Egitto da genitori cristiani che gli fecero impartire un'educazione classica. Discepolo di S. Antonio abate in gioventù, si consacrò al servizio della Chiesa. Nel 325 accompagnò come diacono e segretario il suo vescovo Alessandro al Concilio di Nicea radunato dall'imperatore Costantino, nel quale fu solennemente definita la consostanzialità del Figlio con il Padre. Nel 328 fu acclamato dagli alessandrini loro pastore. Di lui dicevano: "E' un uomo probo, virtuoso, buon cristiano, un asceta, un vero vescovo". Atanasio ristabilì l'ortodossia nicena e combatté l'arianesimo ufficiale che aveva trionfato nei concili di Seleucia e di Rimini (359). Riunito un concilio, prese decisioni improntate a misericordia verso coloro che si erano dati all'eresia per ignoranza, e anche sul terreno dogmatico fu largo e tollerante. Non lasciò più la sua fede fino alla morte avvenuta nel 373 dopo 45 anni di governo forte e alle volte anche duro contro i suoi avversari. Egli meritò a buon diritto il titolo di "grande" per l'indomabile fermezza di carattere dimostrata contro gli ariani e la potenza imperiale, sovente ad essi eccessivamente ligia.

THOMAS AQUINAS
Venice: Hermannus Liechtenstein and Johannes Hamman, 1482. An impressive and desirable book in terms of content, printing history, decoration, and provenance, this famous commentary by Aquinas on the four Gospels appears here as the first book printed by Hermann Liechtenstein at the press he founded in Venice and the only book he issued in partnership with Johannes Hamman. Born in Cologne, Hermann Liechtenstein (d. 1494) printed in Vicenza between 1475 and 1480 and then in Venice from 1482 until his death. In his 20 years of printing, Liechtenstein produced a substantial quantity of books, employing both roman and gothic typefaces, depending upon how appropriate they were for the content of the text he was printing. Bullingham (d. 1598) was domestic chaplain to Bishop Gardiner and was himself Bishop of Gloucester for the last 17 years of his life, during which time he was scurrilously attacked by Martin Marprelate as a "Massmonger" (i.e., Catholic sympathizer). Our volume was later in the library of the discriminating American collector Charles C. Kalbfleisch (1868-1943), who was particularly interested in early books and fine bindings and who was known for choosing only the finest copies available. In a sale entitled "The Arts of the Book . . . the Splendid Library Formed by the Late Charles C. Kalbfleisch, New York," Parke-Bernet sold much of his collection in January of 1944 (the present item was lot 34, fetching a hammer price of $150). The exquisite opening "A" in the ivy-leaf style is beautifully designed, artfully executed, and in a magnificent state of preservation … [Click Below for Full Description]

Caxton, William. Higden, Ranulphus.
1482. [Westminster]: William Caxton, [after July 2 1482]. Single leaf (277 x 210 mm), rubricated, text to recto and verso, old manuscript notes in the margins. Very good condition with wide margins, a few scattered stains and little worming close to the inner margin far from the text. § Caxton leaves are not uncommon (there have been three Caxton leaf books published), and stray single leaves like this turn up. This is a very pleasant example of the first English printer at work. The Polychronicon was compiled by Ranulph Higden, a fourteenth-century Benedictine monk of St Werberg's, Chester. For more than a hundred years it was one of the standard references for world history, widely circulated in manuscript form, before Caxton set in type the text of an English translation done by John of Trevisa in 1387. Higden divided his work into seven books, to echo the seven days of creation; this leaf is from the eighth section of the fourth book and the part describing the reign of Emperor Claudius, the naming of the town of Gloucester, the rebellion against Rome of the Briton King Arviragus, and the deeds of Herod Agrippa.

EUCLID
Venice: Erhard Ratdolt, 1482. First edition of the most important book in the history of mathematics. Euclid s Elements is the oldest mathematical textbook still in common use today and a model for subsequent mathematical books (PMM). The book s use of hundreds of complex geometrical diagrams makes this an outstandingly fine piece of printing (PMM), a landmark from the dawn of printing. The first printing of one of the most important texts from the Middle Ages and one of the very earliest mathematical works to be printed, posed a challenge to the new technology, requiring ingenuity, skill and innovation to replicate the all-important diagrams. Erhard Ratdolt, who printed works in Augsburg, his birthplace, and in Venice succeeded spectacularly, and this first edition is the result a true masterpiece of early printing technique. The first printing to use colours and a title page, this 1482 edition of Euclid s Elementa is technically brilliant in integrating the diagrams with the text. The inclusion of woodcuts and other design flourishes, such as the use of red in the headings and paragraph marks, as well as underlinings, all combine to make this intrinsically technical work both a joy and an immensely practical tool to own (Treasures from UCL 15). The 2,000-year reign of Euclid s Elements as the most widely used mathematics textbook attests to its enduring value. More than one thousand editions have been printed, and the book has been studied by the greatest thinkers including Descartes, Pascal and Newton. The Elements contains thirteen books: 1-6 on plane geometry, 7-9 on t … [Click Below for Full Description]

He first followed father and son Willem van de Velde to England, but soon moved to France where he became painter to Louis XIV, a member of the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture and a protégé of important patrons. In 1685, the art-loving naval official Esprit Cabart de Villermont wrote a letter to the Minister of Navy Jean-Baptiste Colbert, marquis de Seignelay, recommending Van Beecq to his attention: "He is the only here [in France] who excels in this genre". The only copy we could actually locate is in the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Schwartz also notes a copy in the Bibliothèque National, but the title is not found in their online catalogue.Ad 2: Only copy located of a naval print series by the French engraver Nicolas de Poilly (1626-1696). He was taught the art of engraving by his better known brother François de Poilly and mostly produced portraits and religious and historical engravings. The first plates show large war and merchant ships and the last shows several battered sh … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERLINGHIERI, Francesco de Nicola.
Florence, 1482. Two sheets joined, as usual, paper size 430 x 560mm. Trimmed to platemark top and bottom. Southern Russia, Ukraine and the Caucasus, from the third edition of Ptolemy’s Geography to have printed maps, the first to be printed in the vernacular and the first with ‘modern’ maps’. Francesco Berlinghieri (1440-1501), an Italian scholar and humanist, started work on a revision of Ptolemy in 1464, updating the Ptolemiac maps, supplementing them with modern maps (France, Italy, Spain and the Holy Land) and writing a commentary in Italian verse. The maps were engraved by Niccolò Tedesco, a German printer, unusually equidistant meridians and parallels, and rectangular borders rather than trapezoid. The completed work was published as 'Septe Giornate della Geographia di Francesco Berlinghieri' ('The Seven Days of Geography').

Philippus de Barberiis:
Rom, Georg Herolt und Sixtus Riessinger, um 1482. Type 2, 3 und 4. Einspaltiges O-Inkunabelblatt mit einem 3/4seitigen Holzschnitt von Sixtus Riessinger. Blatt mit einer teilkolorierten 8-zeiligen Holzschnitt-Initiale und einigen altkolorierten Schmuckelementen im Holzschnitt. Blattgröße: 13 x 19,8 cm. - - - Sixtus Riessinger erlernte den Buchdruck wohl bei Johannes Mentelin in Straßburg. Als er 1465 nach Rom kam, war er Geistlicher und Drucker. Zwischen 1470 und 1478 druckte er in Neapel und kehrte 1479 nach Rom zurück. Die 13 Holzschnitte zu Discordantiae sanctorum stammen wohl von Riessingers eigener Hand. Der Holzschnitt mit der Sibylle Persica trägt sein Drucker-Signe Pfeil im Bogen. Er starb nach 1502. --- Eine Sibylle weissagt die Zukunft. Die archaischen Ursprünge der Sibylle liegen vermutlich im Orient. Die Wurzeln ihrer Verehrung sind möglicherweise in Kleinasien im Umfeld von Mysterienkulten einer "Erdmutter", wie Kybele, zu suchen. Die ursprüngliche Verbindung der Sibylle mit Erdgottheiten zeigt sich oft an ihrem Aufenthaltsort, an einem Felsblock, Felsspalt oder in einer Felsenhöhle, der Sibyllengrotte. Es gibt zwei archäologisch erfasste Sibyllen-Grotten, wobei diese relativ jüngeren Datums sind, denn sie stammen aus römischer Zeit. Heute noch kann man in Cumae, in der Nähe von Neapel, eine Sibyllen-Grotte besichtigen. In der Orakelstätte zu Delphi in Griechenland findet sich außerhalb des Tempels und Sitz des Orakels, ein Fels, der "Fels der Sibylle". In Rom entwickelte sich der offizielle Kult der Sibyllinischen Bücher als weitere Form der Deutung. Sie sind … [Click Below for Full Description]

(INCUNABULA). LEO I, POPE. [ST. LEO THE GREAT]
Venetiis [Venice]: Lucas Dominici filius, 7 August 1482. This is an excellent incunabular edition of the writings of Pope Leo the Great, saint and Doctor of the Church, in which he expounds upon the Church's position on the dual nature of Christ and the papal succession from the Apostle Peter, among other subjects. Ever vigilant in his efforts to prevent schism and promote unity, Leo I (390?-461) was the greatest administrator of the ancient church, and second only to Gregory the Great in the impact of his papacy. During his term as pope (440-61), he acted decisively to suppress heresy, to come to terms on doctrine with the Eastern wing of Christianity, and to consolidate the institution of the papacy. Today, Leo I is best remembered for going unarmed to meet Attila the Hun in 452 and persuading him to turn back from his invasion of Italy. As a writer, Leo has been recognized as one of the last great stylists of antiquity. This volume contains all of the 96 surviving sermons, plus letters to Bishops Maximus of Antioch and Anatoly of Constantinople, Emperor Leo I of the Eastern Roman Empire, and the famous letter to Flavian, Bishop of Constantinople--a work known as "Leo's Tome"--explaining the fully human and fully divine nature of Christ. ISTC finds 21 works printed by Lucas Dominici between 1480 and 1485, the bulk of these issued in 1481 and 1482. Our volume bears evidence of careful study by a contemporary scholar, who has marked key passages--including those on the Manichean and Arian heresies--with neat shoulder notes and elegantly drawn manicles, giving us a glimpse … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMY Claudius.; BERLINGHIERI Francesco di Niccolo
[1482]. Double-page engraved map, 305 x 485 mm; minor repairs to the centrefold. [Florence: for Francesco di Nicolo Berlinghieri], Francesco di Niccolo Berlinghieri completed the Septe Giornate della Geografia in about 1479, as a paraphrase of Ptolemy's geographical text in Italian verse, in which he combined classical and contemporary texts. He illustrated the text with thirty-one maps, twenty-seven based on Ptolemy, and four modern maps. The volume was printed in 1482, and is regarded as the third printed atlas of the world, after the 1477 Bologna and 1478 Rome editions. This Ptolemaic map of Arabia is drawn on Marinus' plane projection; as such it is the only one of the early Ptolemaic maps to be drawn on his original projection, with equidistant meridians and parallels. The map shows the whole of the Arabian Peninsula, along with the Red Sea, the Arabian Gulf and parts of Persia (present-day Iran) and North Africa. This example appears to be from the third issue of the atlas, circa 1500. The majority of surviving Berlinghieri atlases are third issues; all of which have a distinctive title-page, printed in red. Complete atlases of any issue are scarce and individual maps are decidedly rare: ?It is also said that these maps were sometimes sold separately, or in sets without text. I've hardly ever come across single examples and only once a set? (Wardington Catalogue). The present map has not appeared at auction for close to a decade.
