Caxton, William. Higden, Ranulphus.
1482. [Westminster]: William Caxton, [after July 2 1482]. Single leaf (266 x 193 mm), rubricated, text to recto and verso. The leaf has old manuscript notes in the margins. Mounted, in very good condition with a few stains and a small hole not in the text block. § Caxton leaves are not uncommon (there have been three Caxton leaf books published), and stray single leaves like this turn up.

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]

BEECQ, Jan Karel Donatus van (Jean-Charles-Donat).
Ad 1: Hollstein I, p. 192 (doesn't give a location); G. Schwartz, “J. van Beecq” in: Les échanges artistiques entre les ancien Pays-Bas et la France 1482-1814 (2010); KVK/WorldCat (1 copy); Wurzbach I, p. 68; not in Cat. NHSM; CCfr; Groot & Vorstman; Polak; SUDOC; ad 2: not in CCfr; Polak; SUDOC; WorldCat; for Poilly: Nagler XIII, pp. 68-69. Ad 1: Third (or second) copy located of an attractive print series by the Dutch marine painter J. van Beecq (1638-1722), a nearly forgotten master who had left the Netherlands when the art market collapsed in the "year of disaster" 1672. 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]

Unter Widmung an den Stiftsvogt von Quedlinburg, den Grafen Hoyer von Falkenstein, übersetzte Eike zwischen 1224 und 1227 sein stark erweitertes Rechtsbuch ins Mittelniederdeutsche und nannte es "Spegel der sassen". Die deutschen Drucke des 15. Jahrhunderts enthalten entweder nur das Landrecht oder nur das Lehnrecht, jeweils vermehrt um Glossen (GW).

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]

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.

NICOLAUS GERMANUS.
Silografia in proiezione trapezoidale, mm 362x552 (ma mm 520 in alto), coloritura coeva. Nel 1482 Lienhart Holle pubblicò ad Ulm un'edizione riveduta della celeberrima "Geographia" di Tolomeo con la collaborazione del cartografo Nicolaus Germanus Donis. E' il primo atlante pubblicato fuori dall'Italia ed il primo che utilizza la silografia come matrice per le carte. L'attività editoriale di Lienhart fu portata alla rovina da questa impresa, tanto che cessò l'attività e il materiale passò nelle mani di Johann Reger, che ristampò l'opera nel 1486. Oltre alle 27 carte tradizionali del mondo antico ricavate da Tolomeo, in questa edizione sono inserite per la prima volta 5 carte moderne: Italia, Francia, Spagna, Scandinavia e Terra Santa. E' inoltre il primo atlante con carte firmate (il mappamondo fu firmato da Johannes Schnitzer van Arnsheim), il primo che riporta il testo relativo alla carta al verso. Introduce inoltre la coloritura editoriale che presenta generalmente il mare colorato da un blu acceso ottenuto con i lapislazzuli, anche se si conoscono rari esemplari di carte della prima edizione in cui il mare è colorato in seppia, tipico dell'edizione del 1486. Si tratta sicuramente di esemplari rimasti invenduti in bianco e nero, passati nelle mani di Reger e fatti da lui colorare. Caratteristica del 1482 è la mancanza del titolo "Sexta Europe Tabvla" non presente nel margine alto, mentre esso appare nella seconda edizione, che elimina inoltre la decorazione del testo al verso.Questa edizione introduce poi Registrum alphabeticum e il De locis et mirabilibus mundi, che dive … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius [translated by ANGELUS, Jacobus, edited by GERMANUS, Nicolaus]
420 by 565mm. (16.5 by 22.25 inches).. Double-page woodcut map, fine original hand-colour. This striking map depicts Pakistan and Afghanistan as envisaged by the second century A.D, cartographer Claudius Ptolemaeus, and is one of the earliest obtainable prints maps of the area. The four areas depicted at the top of the map roughly conform to modern day Afghanistan. "Gedrosia" to the south western Pakistan, with the Indus river lying upon its eastern border. The map was published in the first atlas printed outside Italy and the first atlas illustrated with woodcut maps. In 1482 Lienhart Holle in Ulm published a revised edition of Ptolemy's Geographia with the reworking of the Ptolemaic corpus by the cartographer Nicolaus Germanus Donis. The atlas included five additional “modern” maps: Italy, Spain, France, Scandinavia, and the Holy Land. The atlas would be the first book printed by Lienhart Holle, however, it would appear that the venture proved ruinously expensive and his business would go bankrupt shortly after publication. The remaining sheets, the woodblocks and the types passed to Johann Reger in Ulm, who reissued the work in 1486. As well as the modern maps the atlas bears some other notable first. It was the first time that maps were signed by the artist responsible for the woodcutting; in this case Johannes of Armsheim, who signed the world map, and incorporated a backwards N into the woodcut text on each map. It is also the first to print the accompanying text on the verso of the map to which it refers. Another important feature of the Ulm editions is the introd … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMAEUS CLAUDIUS
1482. Woodcut, mm 320x540, original colour. One of the earliest printed maps ever produced. Claudius Ptolemaeus (known as Ptolemy) was a roman cartographer of the II century a.C. He records the Roman World and his maps are best displayed in the famous maps engraved for Leonhardt Holle's edition of "Geographia" published, in two editions in Ulm, southern Germany. The atlas was the first published outside Italy, the first in woodblock. This map shows the area east of the Caspian and north of India, identified by their ancient names - Scithia, Bactriana, Sogdiana and Sacha Regio. Restoration at centerfold, otherwise a very good example of the earliest period of cartographic history.

BARTHOLOMAEUS, DE CHAIMIS
4 p.l., CXII leaves (the first a blank) [lacking at end, as is often the case, eight leaves which is a separate work]. Gothic type, 34 lines, rubricated in red throughout with chapter initials, capitals, paragraph-marks, & initial strokes. Small 4to (216 x 155 mm.), cont. blue-dyed goat- or sheep-skin over wooden boards (some rubbing & fading), sides ruled with intersecting blind fillets forming lozenges, later clasp & catch. Nuremberg: C. Zeninger, 13 June 1482. A lovely and large copy from the Benedictine monastery at Lambach in Upper Austria, with their ownership inscription on the lower paste-down endpaper. Blue-dyed bindings of this period are extremely uncommon; woad was the chief source of blue dyes in the 15th-century and its manufacture was complex and expensive. Bartholomaeus de Chaimis was a Papal legate under Sixtus IV and a Franciscan monk at the convent of S. Maria de Angelis near Milan. This, a work on Christian ethics, is his only book. It was hugely popular and reprinted eleven times in the incunable period, predominantly in Germany. It consists of a treatise on confession and describes various professions and their associated sins including lawyers, doctors, shoemakers, goldsmiths (mentioning alchemical gold and silver), tailors (low cut dresses were not allowed), merchants, priests, actors and musicians, students, craftsmen, farmers, butchers, and tavern keepers. There is an early description of gambling: card and dice games were forbidden to priests but chess was allowed as it is not a game of chance. As is often the case (see ISTC), thi … [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, livemente rifilata al lato sinistro come illustra la foto, 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.

PTOLEMY Claudius.; BERLINGHIERI Francesco di Niccolo
[1482]. Double-page engraved map, 330 x 470 mm. Minor repairs to the centrefold and two small areas of purplish staining to the lower margin (not interfering with any part of the engraving). [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, with 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 Persia (modern Iran) 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. 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). Campbell, Earliest Printed Maps, 171.

1482. ELEGANT MANUSCRIPT CONTAINING TWO WORKS OF SPIRITUAL AND MORAL EDIFICATION IN FRENCH TRANSLATION. Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in French, France, after 1482, c. 1490. Dimensions 274 x 175 mm. 70 folios, written in a Gothic bâtarde bookhand, 18 large initials parti-colored in red and/or blue, inserted leaf in first quire with FULL-PAGE HERALDIC COMPOSITION IN GOLD, SILVER, RED, BLUE AND BLACK. BINDING: Bound in modern nineteenth-century blue velvet over wooden boards, pink paper pastedowns and endleaves, edges gilt. TEXT: Manuscript contains two works that reflect the spirituality of fifteenth-century Carthusians and their quest for the contemplative life. The first text, Sept fruits de la tribulation , is known in only five extant manuscript and is still unedited. A free French version, probably dating from the fifteenth century, of either the longer Latin Tractatus de tribulacione , or an abridged adaptation of the French Livre de tribulacion . The second text , Miroir d'or de l'ame pecheresse, is a work of spiritual edification which consists of seven sections: on human misery, sin (especially lechery), penance, rejection of the world, the vanity of human wishes, death and hell and heaven. There is neither a modern critical edition of the second text, nor a complete census of the existing manuscripts; the copy here was apparently made from an incunable edition of c. 1490. This manuscript begins with a remarkable added full-page illuminated frontispiece with the coat of arms and motto of Louis de Grolée (fl. late fifteenth-early sixteenth century), the abbot … [Click Below for Full Description]

SACROBOSCO, Johannes; REGIOMONTANUS, Johannes; PEURBACH, Georg.
Erhard Ratdolt, Venice, 1482. First printing, rare, of this assembly of basic texts of pre-Copernican astronomy, an exceptional copy in an untouched contemporary binding (this book, and its several fifteenth-century reprints, are almost always found in 19th or 20th century bindings). This is also the first book to use illustrations printed in colour from more than one block, a cornerstone in the history of colour printing (Graff) the book is often catalogued incorrectly as having contemporary hand-colouring. Sacrobosco’s De sphaera mundi (editio princeps 1472) was the first printed astronomical book, a synthesis of Ptolemy and his Arabic commentators, presenting an elegant, accessible Ptolemaic cosmology, and accepted as the most authoritative astronomical textbook of its time. From the time of its composition (ca. 1220), it "enjoyed great renown, and from the middle of the thirteenth century it was taught in all the schools of Europe. In the sixteenth century it gained the attention of mathematicians, including Clavius. As late as the seventeenth century it was used as a basic astronomy text" (DSB). Sacrobosco’s text is accompanied in this edition by two treatises by Regiomontanus (1436-1476) and his teacher Georg Peurbach (1423-1461), who were the outstanding astronomers of their time and their early deaths were "a serious loss to the progress of astronomy, [which] left the technical development of mathematical astronomy deprived of substantial improvement until the generation of Tycho Brahe" (ibid.). The tract by Regiomontanus is a critique of the Theoricae planetarum co … [Click Below for Full Description]

On ne sait rien de lui, sinon son nom et son lieu de naissance qu'il indique lui-même, la petite ville de Tingentera ou Cigentera dans la province de Bétique, dans la baie d'Algésiras. On date sa vie de la période de l'empereur Claude par déduction des indications géographiques qu'il donne dans ses ouvrages : la désignation de la ville d'Afrique romaine sous le nom de Césarée, nom que lui donna Juba II sous Auguste. la référence qu'il fait à Cornélius Népos, écrivain décédé sous le règne d'Auguste. Le triomphe qui fait suite à la conquête de la Bretagne, qui ne peut être que celui de Claude vu la remarque précédente et qui date de 424. Pomponius Mela est lauteur qui présente le tableau le plus complet de létat de la géographie vers le milieu du Ier siècle de lère chrétienne.

HORATIUS
1482. Folio (271 x 205mm.). 272 leaves (but folios CCXCVIIII and CCXXII duplicated - see below), roman letter. 45 lines of commentary surrounding text. Early 19th century English vellum, spine gilt in compartments, speckled edges (top of joint to upper cover restored). First edition of the works of Horace to contain the important commentary of Cristoforo Landino; the only earlier edition to contain a commentary was the 1474 Milan edition which had the lesser known commentary of Helenius Acron. Thomas Dibdin in Bibliotheca Spenceriana, no. 266 writes; ?All critics and bibliographers have united in their praises of this exceedingly rare and valuable impression . . . the printer has shown himself to be worthy of the poet and commentator; for a more tasteful specimen of early typography can rarely be seen? Cristoforo Landino (1424-92) was a Florentine humanist and a prominent member of the circle of Lorenzo de' Medici; although he was only a mediocre poet he became an in important theorist and he also produced important editions of Vergil (1487) which he presented as an allegorical poem and Dante (1481) who was cast as a Florentine patriot and opponent of the papacy. Provenance: Long 13-line note in a very neat contemporary humanistic hand on the verso of folio 257, elsewhere occasional contemporary annotations; unidentified faded oval stamps on a2.

NICOLAUS GERMANUS.
Silografia in proiezione trapezoidale, mm 362x552 (ma mm 520 in alto), coloritura coeva. Nel 1482 Lienhart Holle pubblicò ad Ulm un'edizione riveduta della celeberrima "Geographia" di Tolomeo con la collaborazione del cartografo Nicolaus Germanus Donis. E' il primo atlante pubblicato fuori dall'Italia ed il primo che utilizza la silografia come matrice per le carte. L'attività editoriale di Lienhart fu portata alla rovina da questa impresa, tanto che cessò l'attività e il materiale passò nelle mani di Johann Reger, che ristampò l'opera nel 1486. Oltre alle 27 carte tradizionali del mondo antico ricavate da Tolomeo, in questa edizione sono inserite per la prima volta 5 carte moderne: Italia, Francia, Spagna, Scandinavia e Terra Santa. E' inoltre il primo atlante con carte firmate (il mappamondo fu firmato da Johannes Schnitzer van Arnsheim), il primo che riporta il testo relativo alla carta al verso. Introduce inoltre la coloritura editoriale che presenta generalmente il mare colorato da un blu acceso ottenuto con i lapislazzuli, anche se si conoscono rari esemplari di carte della prima edizione in cui il mare è colorato in seppia, tipico dell'edizione del 1486. Si tratta sicuramente di esemplari rimasti invenduti in bianco e nero, passati nelle mani di Reger e fatti da lui colorare. Caratteristica del 1482 è la mancanza del titolo "Sexta Europe Tabvla" non presente nel margine alto, mentre esso appare nella seconda edizione, che elimina inoltre la decorazione del testo al verso.Questa edizione introduce poi Registrum alphabeticum e il De locis et mirabilibus mundi, che dive … [Click Below for Full Description]
