NICOLAUS GERMANUS.
1482. 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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Donnus Nicolaus GERMANUS (? - ante 1490)
1482. 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. Le incisioni su legno sono di Johannes Schnitzer di Arnheim. L … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIBLE IN LATIN
Venice: Franciscus Renner, de Heilbronn, 1482-83. This item is a major achievement for a printer whose work was distinguished by the production of a number of important Bibles. Renner was responsible for at least two biblical firsts. In 1475, his folio edition was the first Latin Bible printed in Venice, and his 1480 Bible was the first quarto Venetian printing (it seems from Goff to be only the second Bible to be printed anywhere in that format). The present set is of considerable interest as a very well preserved incunabular Bible, and it is textually important as being only the second Bible with the "Postillae Literales" of Nicholas of Lyra, originally printed by Sweynheym and Pannartz in 1471. But apart from its condition and text, our Bible is of extraordinary interest because of the striking rubrication and especially the elaborate pious drawings seen here. The two illustrations of bleeding crosses constitute rare and striking manifestations of the tradition of what is known as the affective piety movement of the late Middle Ages, when there was an increased identification among mystics with the pain felt by Christ on the cross, and an attempt to experience the stigmata through meditation. Many of these mystics were women, often nuns. The devotion to Christ's passion evinced by our illustrations, combined with the naïve style, which argues that the artist had not received as much formal training in painting as men received in monasteries, make it not unlikely that they are the work of a cloistered woman. The decoration here is closely related to a group of German colo … [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 p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Polycronicon; [English Incunabula; Early Printed Historical Works]; Higden, Ranulph
[Westminster]: William Caxton, [after 2 July, 1482].. THE FIRST EDITION, Caxton's longest and most ambitious printing project. A COPY WITH OUTSTANDING PROVENANCE AND IN A SUPERB AND IMPORTANT BINDING OF FULL RED MOROCCO. 40 lines & headlines; bastarda type 4:95; Double column, black letter, beautifully rubricated throughout in red, including six and seven line initials. Small folio, in a rich and quite extraordinary mid 18th century binding unquestionably bound for James West, to his designs, in full red morocco. The boards feature a large ornamental gilt framework border identical to that used on his copy of the Caxton Chaucer (now called the Remington Chaucer and one of the most valuable English books to have ever sold at auction). This binding is known to have been replicated on at least 5 Caxton printings from West's collection of English incunabula and for his personal collection and library. The elaborately gilt tooled spine features five raised bands separating magnificently designed gilt compartments executed in the architectural "Gothic Window" pattern designed by Mr. West and identical to those used on a number of his books. The design most likely was established to mimic the windows of the owner's library at Alscot. Two gilt lettered and gilt decorated green morocco labels fill two compartments, there is giltwork to the board edges and gilt dentelles at the turn-ins, and all edges are gilt. The original blue endpapers and silk marker are intact. This is clearly a binding of importance and once a part of one of the greatest Caxton collections ever assembled, much … [Click Below for Full Description]

ENGEL, Friedrich & STÄCKEL, Paul (eds.)
First edition, Engel's own annotated copy, of this important collection of texts in the pre-history of non-Euclidean geometry, covering the period 1482-1837, and including works by Euclid, Wallis, Saccheri, Lambert, Gauss, Schweikart and Taurinus, many of which are virtually unobtainable in their original editions. Also included are extracts from letters between Gauss, Wolfang Bolyai, Bessel and Schumacher. Engel's notes were perhaps made in preparation for a second edition, which never appeared.<br/><br/> Engel & Stäckel include a facsimile of the historic letter from Gauss to Taurinus, written at Göttingen on 8 November, 1814, in which Gauss describes his own prior discovery of non-Euclidean geometry: "The assumption that the sum of the three angles [of a triangle] is less than 180° leads to a curious geometry, quite different from ours (the Euclidean), but thoroughly consistent, which I have developed to my entire satisfaction, so that I can solve every problem in it with the exception of the determination of a constant, which cannot be designated <i>a priori</i>. The greater one takes this constant, the nearer one comes to Euclidean Geometry, and when it is chosen infinitely large the two coincide. The theorems of this geometry appear to be paradoxical and, to the uninitiated, absurd; but calm, steady reflection reveals that they contain nothing at all impossible. For example, the three angles of a triangle become as small as one wishes, if only the sides are taken large enough; yet the area of the triangle can never exceed a definite limit, regardless of how great the … [Click Below for Full Description]

DA VINCI, LEONARDO
Paris: Jacques Langlois. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, the preferred issue in Italian, of Da Vinci's first published work, the major art treatise of the Renaissance and one of the first attempts to define and understand the scientific laws of painting. A beautiful, wide-margined copy in full contemporary vellum. "Leonardo's writings and notes long remained in manuscript. Shortly after his death an industrious compiler brought together those passages from his posthumous papers dealing with painting and combined them into a Treatise of Painting (Trattato della pittura); but this important manuscript, which also preserves much that is no longer to be found in Leonardo's own notes, was only edited and published in the 17th century in France" (E.H. Gombrich, The Literature of Art).    Begun in 1482, when Da Vinci's creative powers were reaching their peak, the Treatise of Painting represents the fullest expression of the master's aesthetic theory. The first edition of the Treatise is an exquisitely printed book, with engraved portraits of Leonardo and Alberti (whose work is addressed in the second part of the book), over seventy engraved illustrations and diagrams (believed to be the work of the great Nicolas Poussin), and numerous engraved initials and vignettes.    Provenance: With bookplate on front pastedown of Lady Frances Scott, presumably the owner of Douglas House (Petersham), the daughter of Francis Scott and wife of Archibald Douglas, 1st Baron Douglas.

Johannes de Nordlingen et Henricus de Harlem 3 Oct. 1482 HUGO, SENENSIS (Ugo Benzi). Consilia ad diversas aegritudines. (Bologna). Johannes de Nordlingen et Henricus de Harlem, 3 Oct. 1482. In - folio, pergamena ottocentesca. 104 ff. Testo a due colonne, 44 linee, tipi 180 g e 91 g. Prima iniziale miniata, le seguenti libere con lettera guida. Bell' esemplare completo dei due ff. di indice che mancano quasi sempre. Edizione bolognese estremamente rara, pubblicata a cura di Lorenzo Gozzadini, sconosciuta a Hirsch (I, 465) che cita soltanto la ristampa del 1518. UGO BENZI (c. 1370 - 1439), called Hugh of Siena, was Professor of Medicine at Siena, then at Bologna and at Parma, and appear to have give lectures at the Sorbonne. Returning to Italy, he was called by Nicholas III to Ferrara, where he took part in the celebrated Council of 1417. He was perhaps the best interpreter of the ancien medical writers amongst his contemporaines. His Consilia are of interest on account of their clinical reports. (Lier). H. - C., 9020. Klebs, 1001.1.

EUCLID.
An exceptional copy, in unrestored contemporary binding, of the second edition of the oldest mathematical textbook extant, "much more uncommon than the <i>edtio princeps</i> [1482]" (Thomas-Stanford, p. 5), and especially rare such fine condition as here. This book "has exercised an influence upon the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible" (DSB). Euclid's <i>Elements</i> is the only work of classical antiquity to have remained continuously in print, and to be used continuously as a textbook from the pre-Christian era to the 20th century. It is the foundation work not only for geometry but also for number theory.<br/><br/> Euclid's <i>Elements of Geometry</i> is a compilation of early Greek mathematical knowledge, synthesized and systematically presented by Euclid in ca. 300 BC. Books I-IV are devoted to plane geometry, Book V deals with the theory of proportions, and Book VI with the similarity of plane figures. Books VII-IX are on number theory, Book X on commensurability and incommensurability, Books XI-XII explore three dimensional geometric objects, and Book XIII deals with the construction of the five regular solids. Later non-Euclidean additions include Book XIV, which is thought to have been contributed by Hypsciles (ca. 200 BC), and Book XV, which may have been added by John of Damascus, or by a 6th-century pupil of Isadoros of Miletos.<br/><br/> This edition is much rarer than the <i>edition princeps</i> (Venice: Ratdolt, 1482), which it closely follows. It only omits the dedication to the Doge of Venice. The border of the incipit page is … [Click Below for Full Description]

Im oberen Randbereich etw. gebräunt und im unteren Bereich etw. fingerfleckig. Wasserzeichen: Stern auf Standarte. Blattgröße: 14,3 x 20,4 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Es steht noch ein weiteres Blatt aus diesem Werk, mit der Darstellung der Venus zur Verfügung; zu einem Preis von 380.- Euro.. Blatt der Editio Princeps. Das Poeticon Astronomicon war eine der ersten antiken Quellen der Sternenkonstellationen; es war die erste gedruckte, rein astronmische Schrift, die hier in einem Blatt der Erstausgabe vorliegt. In der Renaissance wurde das Werk dem römischen Historiker C. Julius Hyginus zugeschrieben, der im 1. Jahrhundert vor Chr. lebte. Heute wissen wir, dass es von einem anderen Hyginus zusammengestellt wurde. Die Ordnung der Konstellationen folgt dem Katalog in Ptolomäus "Almagest", sodass das Werk im dem 2. Jahrhundert n. Chr. entstanden sein kann. Das Poeticon wurde erstmals 1482 gedruckt.

Der Dominikaner mußte sich auf einem Generalkapitel in den Niederlanden 1330 gegen den Vorwurf ketzerischer Lehren verteidigen, widmete sich ganz der Seelsorge, besonders in der Schweiz u. am Oberrhein. "Seuse ist der Dichter unter den dt. Mystikern, dessen Schriften einen großen Bilder- u. Gefühlsreichtum bezeugen.... Die Kenntnis seiner Werke verdanken wir hauptsächlich seiner geistlichen Tochter Elsbeth Stagel in Töss, die an der Redaktion seiner ,Vita' beteiligt war, Gespräche mit ihm niederschrieb u. seine Briefe sammelte. Seine ,Vita' ist die erste geistliche Selbstbiographie in dt. Sprache." (BBKL IX, 1482).- Tls. leicht fleckig, vorderer Innendeckel mit großer Bezugsfehlstelle, Ebd. fleckig u. etw. knittrig, vord.

Housed in a flat back cloth solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. White-on-black woodcut border and red printed headline to a2r, white-on-black woodcut initials, geometric typemetal marginal diagrams throughout. First two lines of a2r (printed in red) follow BMC's transcription for the copy at IB.20513; line 45 of o8r has the corrected setting of the text: "culi prostrati sed non sunt adinuicem equales. hoc aut scies si perpendiculares a" - cf. Curt M. Bühler, "A typographical error in the editio princeps of Euclid", 'Gb Jb' (1966), p. 102-104.

First edition of 'the oldest mathematical textbook still in common use today' (PMM) and one of the earliest printed books with geometrical figures. The text is the standard late mediaeval recension of Johannes Campanus of Novara, based on the 12th-century translation from the Arabic of Adelard of Bath. The text is preceded by a dedicatory letter by Erhard Ratdolt to Giovanni Mocenigo.
