'A small circular woodcut, diagrammatically representing the whole world, is the first map ever printed...' (Shirley, The Mapping of the World).This is a splendid copy, in its original fifteenth-century Venetian blind-stamped binding, of Isidore of Seville's great medieval Encyclopedia, with its illustrations including the extraordinary world map, the very first world map to have appeared in a printed book.The mapKnown as a "T-O" type from its shape, the map (f 68v) represents a medieval view of a spherical world and shows all that was known or could be imagined of the world. In his text Isidore describes the earth as round: his exact meaning has been debated, but he probably means spherical rather than disc-shaped. The map shows the top half of the sphere, everything else being unimaginably hot and obviously uninhabitable. In his text he says that 'Across the ocean, beyond … [Click Below for Full Description]

Modern boards, washed and remarkably clean, except that the final gathering shows faint waterstaining at outer margin and a small unobtrusive stain in the text; overall, a beautiful copy. Large hand-drawn initial capital letter. 38 lines, 2 columns, a6b8c-d6e8f-h6 [-h6]; 51 leaves, numbered [1]- 51 (lacking final blank). 1 vols. Folio. A Rare and Important Latin Dictionary, 1483. Sextus Pompeius Festus was a grammarian of the 2nd century A.D., who wrote this abridgement ("epitome") of the now lost encyclopedic dictionary of his contemporary Marcus Verrius Flaccus - which survives only in fragments and in occasional citations by other authors. Our primary remaining source of this important Latin dictionary is Festus' abridgement, of which there is only one surviving manuscript (mutilated, and consisting of only the letters M-V), and an 8th-century abridgment of Festus by Paul the Deacon. The printed editions from the 15th century, therefore, are of the utmost importance in the history of the transmission of the text. Vancil lists 10: (201-210), beginning with the first edition of Milan, 1471. This edition by Boninus de Bonini is the last edition printed in the 15th century, and apparently the last edition before the rediscovered mutilated manuscript was printed in 1559.

ALFONSO X (1221-1284), KING OF CASTILE AND LEON.
A very good copy of the work which is responsible for Alfonso X's "lasting scientific fame" (DSB), in a handsome strictly contemporary London or Cambridge binding. The 'Alphonsine Tables', as they became known, were a standard work of reference for astronomers, cosmographers, astrologers and navigators for nearly five hundred years. Essentially a translation of the Toledan Tablets of the Cordoban astronomer al-Zarqali (Archazel, c. 1029 - c. 1087), with some new observations made in the years 1262-1272, the work retained the Ptolemaic system for calculating celestial motions.<br/><br/> The tables were used to predict the motions of the planets and stars, and also to determine lunar phases, eclipses and calendrical information. They "utilized mean solar, lunar, and planetary orbits and equations; declinations of stars; ascension, opposition and conjunction of the sun and moon; visibility of the moon and of eclipses; and a trigonometrical theory of sines and chords to predict the motion of celestial bodies" (DSB I 122). <br/><br/> Alfonso el Sabio ('The Learned', 1221 - 1284), was the great-grandson of Frederick Barbarossa, and became Alfonso X upon the death of his father Ferdinand III in 1252. He was an enthusiastic sponsor of the translation of Arabic works, especially astronomy, into Latin and Castilian. The commission of a translation of the present work, which became known as the <i>Tablas alfonsinas</i>, was his most enduring achievement. In its Latin form it was widely popular throughout the Middle Ages, the Spanish text from which it was translated having been lost. … [Click Below for Full Description]

HIPPOCRATES
Translated & edited by Andrea Brenta. Roman type, 27 lines. 20 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to (198 x 148 mm.), attractive antique limp boards (minor foxing). Rome: E. Silber, 1483-90. First edition of this collection of texts by Hippocrates, translated from the Greek and edited by Andrea Brenta (d. 1484), professor of Greek and Latin in Rome and one of the first scholars to benefit from the opening of the Vatican library to the public in 1475. Two 15th-century books have claim to containing the first printing of the Hippocratic Oath, which has long been regarded as expressing the fundamental ethical and moral standards of the medical profession: the present work (printed sometime between 1483 and 1490) and the Articella (colophon dated 29 March 1483). Priority is not yet determined. The Oath is first mentioned in the first century A.D. and has maintained a central place in the European medical consciousness ever since. Fine copy. ❧ Bietenholz, ed., Contemporaries of Erasmus. A Biographical Register of the Renaissance and Reformation, Vol. I, p. 193. Goff H-278. Klebs 519.1. .

VALTURIUS, Robertus
Verona: Boninus de Boninus, 1483. * BMC VII.952; Goff V-89; Dibner, Heralds, 172; for the attribution of the woodcuts to Giocondo, see Rodakiewitz, “The editio princeps of Roberto Valturio’s ‘De re militari’ in Relation to the Dresden and Munich Mss.,” Maso Finiguerra XVIII-XIX (1940), 15-82; cf. Jonathan Alexander’s entry in The Painted Page, no. 63.. Scarce second Latin edition (first 1472) of this treatise on the art of war, containing THE EARLIEST TECHNICAL ILLUSTRATIONS IN A PRINTED BOOK. According to Sander, this edition contains an original set of woodblocks which appear here for the first time; they are very slight reductions of the blocks of the original 1472 edition and are augmented by a single woodcut (f. r1 recto, two men sitting inside a tent). Their differences from the original blocks are so modest that they are virtually identical. The design of the woodcuts has been variously attributed to the Alberti pupil Matteo de’ Pasti or Fra Giocondo, the Veronese architect who produced the first illustrated Vitruvius (1511). “The historical importance of De Re Militari lies in the fact that it is the first book printed with illustrations of a technical or scientific character depicting the progressive engineering ideas of the author’s own time. The woodcuts illustrate the equipment necessary for the military and naval engineer; they involve revolving gun turrets, platforms and ladders for sieges, paddle-wheels, a diver’s suit, a lifebelt, something resembling a tank, pontoon and other bridges, a completely closed b … [Click Below for Full Description]
