Zweispaltiges, 40-zeiliges Original-Inkunabelblatt mit einer 5-zeiligen Holzschnitt-Initiale und einem dreigeteilten altkolorierten Holzschnitt (13 x 10,6 cm). Blatt etwas fleckig. Blattgröße: 19,8 x 28,5 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf.. Der berühmte "Haarlemer Holzschneider", dessen Name unbekannt geblieben ist, arbeite von 1483 bis 1486 im Auftrage Jacob Bellaert's in Haarlem. Im Jahre 1486 verschwand Jacob Bellaert's Druckerpresse in Haarlem und im darauffolgenden Jahr befand sich der "Haarlemer Holzschneider" in Antwerpen und arbeitet nun für den Buchdrucker Gerard Leeu. Nach Schretlen gehören verschiedene der Holzschnitte dieser Leeu-Ausgabe der "Vita Christi" zum Alterswerk des Haarlemer Künstlers. Schretlen schreibt: "In 1487 Gerard Leeu published a Ludolphus (C.A. 1181) which contains several folio-woodcuts by this artist (The Haarlem woodcutter). ... We find here (in Antwerp) the same genial descriptive qualities which characterise his Haarlem works." (Schretlen 1925, S. 33) Der Dominikaner und spätere Kartäuser Ludolph von Sachsen verfasste die Schrift über das Leben Christi in der ersten Hälfte des XIV. Jahrhunderts. Das Besondere am Druck Leeus ist die Verwendung der Volkssprache und die künstlerische Gestaltung der Holzschnitte in flämischen Ateliers. Das einfache Kolorit des hier angebotenen Blattes ist typisch für den niederländischen Stil der Zeit. Der zum Kapitel xiiii gehörige Holzschnitt zeigt den Kindermord von Bethlehem.

      [Speyer, Peter Drach, before April 1487].. Folio (215 x 294 mm). 129 ff. (wants final blank). 48 lines, double-columned, gothic type. Rubricated, with lombardic initials in red and blue, occasional pen flourishes, paragraph marks at beginning of chapter headings, some capital strokes. 19th-c. white paper boards with printed paper spine label. Stored in custom-made full green morocco gilt clamshell box.. First edition of the notorious "Hammer of Witches", which laid down procedures for finding out and convicting witches. Due to the innovation of the printing press, it contributed significantly to the early modern witch craze. "The most important and most sinister work on demonology ever written. It crystallized into a fiercely stringent code previous folklore about black magic with church dogma on heresy, and, if any one work could, opened the floodgates of the inquisitorial hysteria [... it was] the source, inspiration, and quarry for all subsequent treatises on witchcraft" (Robbins, Encyclopaedia of Witchcraft and Demonology). The book was published and republished in at least 13 editions up to 1520, then revived from the late 16th century, undergoing at least 16 editions between 1574 and 1669, as well as numerous editons in German, French and English. Complete copies of the first edition are rare, and only a few copies are found in American institutions. - Upper cover stained and soiled, first three pages of text with some soiling and staining, neat repair to final printed leaf. All in all, a remarkably fine, clean copy. - HC* 9238. Goff I-163. British Library IB.8581 (acquired in 1867 but not recorded in BMC). ISTC ii00163000. Coumont I4.1. Danet 16. Graesse III, 425.

        Fortalicium fidei contra iudeos saracenos aliosque christiane fidei inimicos].

      Lyon, Guillaume Balsarin, 22. V. 1487.. Got. Type, 2 Spalten, 51 Zeilen. 246 (statt 249) unnumerierte Bll. (a*3-8 [statt 8], a-r8, s-v6, A-K8, L2-7 [statt 8], ohne das letzte w. Blatt).

Rückenschildchen und hübscher -vergoldung. Kl.-Folio (195 x 275 mm).. Das "Fortalitatium fidei", das um 1458 verfaßte Hauptwerk des konvertierten spanischen Juden de Spina, gilt als "methodische und ideologische Grundlage der Inquisition. Das in fünf Kapitel eingeteilte Buch richtet sich v. a. gegen das Judentum und den Islam [...] Die Lösung des Problems sieht er in der energischen Durchführung der Inquisition, deren Ergebnis das Auslöschen jüdischer Traditionen sein sollte: die Vertreibung der Juden aus Spanien" (LMA I, 408f.). "It is divided into five books, the first directed against those who deny the Divinity of Christ, the second against heretics, the third against the Jews, and the fourth against the Mohammedans, while the fifth book treats of the battle to be waged against the Gates of Hell. In this last book the author dwells at length upon the demons and their hatred of men; the powers they have over men and the diminution of these powers, owing to the victory of Christ on the Cross, the final condition of the demons, etc." (Catholic Encyclopaedia). "Ouvrage fort curieux de ce theologien espagnol [...] il etait dit-on d'origine juive, c'est pour cela que son 'Fortalicium' peut etre classe dans une bibliotheque kabbalistique" (Caillet). - Einband berieben; Gelenke angeplatzt.

        Eigenhändiger Namenszug

      O.O., o.J.. 1 Bl., ca. 12 × 1,8 cm, alt montiert (Unterlage ca. 20 x 17,5 cm). Besitzervermerk (Iohannes Langius Erphurdiensis Augustinianus emit) auf ausgeschnittenem, montiertem Buchvorsatz. - Johannes Lang(e), (1487-1548): Der in Erfurt geborene Lange begann sein Studium an der Universität seiner Heimatstadt, wo er in Kontakt mit dem Humanistenkreis um Mutianus Rufus kam. Bald darauf zog er sich jedoch ins Erfurter Augustinerkloster zurück. Dort schloss er mit Martin Luther Freundschaft, den er 1511 nach Wittenberg begleitete. In Wittenberg erwarb er den Magistergrad, las an der Universität über Moralphilosophie und setzte zugleich seine theologischen Studien fort, die er 1519 mit dem Doktorgrad abschloss. Die Beziehung zu Luther, der ihm zwischenzeitlich zum Priorat im Erfurter Augustinerkloster verholfen hatte und dessen Stelle als Distriktsvikar Lange übernahm, blieb eng. Lange seinerseits stand Luther in Krisenzeiten zur Seite; er unterstütze ihn in der Leipziger Disputation und verhinderte die Verurteilung Luthers durch die Universität Erfurt. Der Erfurter Pfaffensturm gefährdete jedoch auch Langes Stellung. Lange, der um diese Zeit seine deutsche Übersetzung des Matthäus-Evangeliums fertigstellte, verließ 1522 sein Kloster und verehelichte sich wenig später, was ihm heftige Angriffe seitens seiner katholischen Gegner einbrachte. Unterstützt von Luther und den Wittenberger Reformatoren blieb Lange jedoch, trotz aller Anfeindungen, entschiedener Vorkämpfer der Reformation in Erfurt, die auf sein Betreiben dort schließlich in der Stadt und der Universität dauerhaft verankert werden konnte.

        Consilia et Responsa.

      1487. A Distinguished Collection of Legal Opinions [Ubaldis, Angelus de (c.1328-c.1407)]. [Sancto Blasio, Johannes Baptista, Editor]. [Consilia et Responsa]. [Venice: Johannes Rubeus Vercellensis, 27 February 1487. Table at end of text, Tabulas. Repertorium Consiliorum, by Sancto Blasio, dated 14 April, 1487. [178] ff. Text in parallel 77-line columns. Collation: a-d8, e6, E8, f-l8, m6, n-s8, t6, A-C8. Folio (16-1/2" x 11-1/2"). Nineteenth-century quarter calf over cloth, raised bands, gilt ornaments and lettering piece to spine, endpapers added. Some rubbing with wear to spine ends and corners, some scuffing to calf portions of boards, a few cracks to text block. Text printed in gothic type, initial spaces blank, wide margins. Light toning to text, occasional faint dampstaining to margins, a few small wormholes with minor loss to a few letters. Ex-monastery library. Recent small inkstamp to front free endpaper, early owner inscription to head of first leaf. * Angelus de Ubaldis was the brother of the great jurist Baldus de Ubaldis. Angelus was a highly regarded jurist as well. This volume is a collection of his civil and canon-law consilia, opinions on disputed legal points in an active case referred by a judge, and responsa, opinions on points of written law or decided cases. It was edited by Sancto Blasio, who added a useful index. Collections of consilia are important guides to the history of legal doctrine. As Pazzaglini and Hawks note, they "represent a body of precedent and reflect the underlying political, social, and economic tensions of the day. [They] merged legal theory with facts of a case to produce a constantly developing law on a wide range of issues, such as the status of women and Jews, laws of inheritance, statute legislation, court procedure, imprisonment and homicide. (...) There is always an element of casuistry in the consilia, as they apply general principles of doctrine to the particular cases of fact. Thus, consilia are as firmly grounded in reality as any historical source can be." Edited by Sancto Blasio, the first edition of Ubaldus's work was published in 1477. It went through three more editions in 1478, 1487 and 1498. All are rare. OCLC locates no copies of our 1487 imprint in North America. The ISTC locates copies at Harvard Law School, The Huntington Lib.

        GLOSA PSALTERII. [EXPOSITIO SUPER TOTO PSALTERIO]

      Strassburg: [Printer of the Jordanus von Quedlinburg (i.e., Georg Husner)], 1487. Hardcover. 305 x 216 mm (12 x 8 1/2"). 92 unnumbered leaves (the last leaf blank). Double columns, 92 lines of text in gothic type. Once fine and still pleasing contemporary blindstamped Venetian mahogany morocco over wooden boards, covers with foliate frame enclosing large knotwork cross, remnants of four brass clasps (two on the fore edge, one each at head and tail), former (ninth or 10th century?) vellum manuscript pastedowns removed, leaving vestiges of writing in a Carolingian hand (spine repaired and worming and abrasions on the covers recently and expertly filled in, with original binding decoration replicated by Courtland Benson). WITH A LOVELY ILLUMINATED OPENING INITIAL in colors on a burnished gold ground. Ownership inscription of "D. Barnabe à Parma" dated 1644 on title page, with three other inscriptions (relating to the book's purchase?) below it. Goff T-532; BMC I, 136. The carefully restored binding with some general moderate wear, but now solid and with much of its original appeal recovered. First three leaves with small, narrow stain to fore edge, a7 with half a dozen small ink stains to text, intermittent minor foxing and browning (never noticeable), last five gatherings with tiny round wormhole in text, final two quires with small, faint dampstain at head and tail of inner margin, but none of these defects significant, and an excellent copy internally, the leaves clean and fresh, the margins ample, and the illumination with rich colors and sparkling, intact gold. This is a very attractive folio edition of a book on the Christian significance of the Psalms, one of the major writings of Johannes Turrecremata (Juan de Torquemada, 1388-1468), a Spanish Dominican monk who attended several church councils, who became a cardinal in 1439, and who was known for his charity. Our printer is a figure of perplexing historical untidiness. Georg Husner is known to have been a goldsmith who married a citizen's daughter in Strassburg in 1470. We know further that he printed and signed his books in their colophons from 1473-79 and then again intermittently from 1493 on. But for reasons that have never been fully understood, books--like the present item--that are easily recognized as coming from his workshop between 1479 and 1493 do not contain his (or any other) name in their colophons. Within this period (and extending to 1499), there is an important grouping of Husner books, very similar typographically, the first one of which was the sermons of Jordanus of Quedlinburg, printed in 1483. As is the case with the present volume, Proctor has designated these editions as having been produced by the "Printer of the 1483 Jordanus de Quedlinburg (Georg Husner)." This second Husner edition is quite rare: Goff locates only one copy (at the Library of Congress), ABPC lists none at auction since 1975. This copy is not only well preserved in a period binding, but is also embellished with a lovely illuminated initial.

        Expositio Evangelii Secundum Johannem BOUND WITH De Victoria Verbi Dei

      Johann Amerbach & Anton Sorg, Basel & Augsburg, 1487. First Edition. Hardcover (Half Leather). Very Good Condition. Later half stamped pigskin over wooden boards, spine worn dry and soiled, a little shaken and separating, clasps intact, a few small worm holes, library mark to spine. 265 x 190 mm (sheet size). Augustine's Exposition of the Gospel According to John (205 of 206 leaves, lacking the final blank. 53 lines, [Johann Amerbach, not after 1491]), bound with the Edition Princeps of Rupert of Deutz's influential early 12th century De Victoria Verbi Dei (113 of 114 leaves, lacking final blank. 49 lines, Anton Sorg, Augsburg, 1487). The Augustine is trimmed a little close to the marginal annotations in spots, heavy dampstains to a few pages early on and a few light ones in the gutter a little later, a few minor worm holes including to the title page, title excised on the corner with extensive notes in pen, library stamp, soiling, two o iii and o iiii bound out of order, scattered annotations and underlining in an early hand. Generally quite clean otherwise. Undated, but the Munich copy has a 1491 owner inscription and the Tallinn copy has a buyer's date of 1491 (ISTC). De Victoria: mild dampstains scattered throughout,, largely in the margins, attractively rubricated, scattered notes in an early hand, a few minor worm holes in the margins. Rupertus was notable later on for the scrutiny his works received from the papacy in relation to the doctrine of transubstantiation - he had preached what the church called "impanation", a more literal transmogrification where the body of Christ was actually physically present in the Eucharist. Size: Quarto (4to). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Religion & Theology; Antiquarian & Rare. Inventory No: 042978. .
