HOMER.
Florence: Demetrius Damilas for Bernardus and Nerius Nerli, 1488. 2 volumes, folio (312 x 216 mm). Late 18th-century red long-grain morocco, spine lettered and tooled in gilt, double raised bands; an English binding, decorated in the style of Roger Payne. 16th-century annotations throughout, mainly in Latin and Greek, perhaps some in Italian. Binder's mistake resulting in preliminary leaves for the Iliad bound at the start of the Odyssey; blanks E10 and ETET6 not preserved. A beautiful copy. Editio princeps of the writings attributed to Homer, including the Iliad and the Odyssey, two of the earliest, most important and influential works of European literature. "The Iliad and the Odyssey are the first perfect poetry of the western world. They spring fully grown, their predecessors lost, and the magic has persisted ever since. The legends of the siege of Troy and the return of Odysseus are the common heritage of all The form, the action and the words have had incalculable influence on the form, action and words of poetry ever since; the composition of the Aeneid, the Divine Comedy, Paradise Lost, and many others, has been determined by the Iliad and the Odyssey. Their popularity never diminishes" (PMM). The editor Demetrius Chalcondylas was professor of Greek at the Florentine Studio from 1475 until 1491. The type is that of Demetrius Damilas, a scribe who had previously been active in the printing of Greek books in Milan since 1476. It was based on the handwriting of Michael Apostolis, which was simpler and more distinct than Damilas's own elegant but elaborate hand. This mo … [Click Below for Full Description]

1488. "The Odyssey- Book XVII". Complete Book XVII from the first printing of the Works of Homer in 1488. The first printed edition of Homer, this is also one of the earliest printed editions of any ancient Greek author. The edition was edited by Chalcondylas, a key figure in the transmission of Greek to Renaissance Italy, and funded by two Florentine brothers, Bernardo and Nerio Nerli. Bernardo explains in the preface that the lack of books has proved troublesome for students of Greek literature and he decided to address the problem by publishing a Greek text. Bernardo does not identify the manuscripts used by Chalcondylas, but he mentions that the editor consulted the twelfth-century commentary of Eustathius [BHL A1]. Published by Bernardus Nerlius & D. Damilas, Florence, Italy, 1488. Incunable, printed in its original Greek language. Folio [9" x 13"], 9 leaves, 39 lines in Greek. Bound in modern cloth with paper label. The book is in fine condition. The leaves are clean and bright with pencil numbered pages. A rare opportunity to purchase a significant fragment from one of the greatest books ever written, from the first century of printing. The summary of Book XVII is as follows: Odysseus walks to town the next morning, joined by Eumaeus, who still thinks he is accompanying an old beggar. Telemachus precedes them, cheering his mother with his presence and the stories of his trip. With the prince is a seer, Theoclymenus, who tells Penelope that Odysseus is on Ithaca now, gathering information. The queen wishes that she could believe him, but she cannot.

Johannes von Cube (Johann Wonnecke from Kaub) or Peter Schoffer
1488. Hardcover. Possibly the herbal of Johann von Cube (Herbarius zu teutsch und von aller handt Kreuteren, Augsburg, 1488) as that contained cap. CLII on the dandelion, as does this volume. But lacking title page, this Hortus Sanitatus is hard to identify the specific edition. It is also possible this is the Hortus Sanitatus of Peter Schoffer published in Mainz in 1485. There are 182 leaves (364 pp.) of double columned gothic type descriptions of flora and fauna with woodcuts contemporary handcolored and 8 leaves of indices at rear. A poor to fair copy with remains of binding, but lacking rear board, text fair to good, first several leaves somewhat worn, with tide-marks from damp staining to some pages; the majority of pages are good, but last several leaves show wear and patching, numbers handwritten on tops of almost all pages and each colored woodcut also numbered by hand, moderate loss to the bottom margins of some leaves, some pages (and woodcuts) with holes in them, two or three pages repaired with old tape. If going by the 'Chapters' there may be some pages missing, although the printing of this was not meticulous as far as numbering went, to whit: a jump from Cap. V to Cap. XII, from LII to LV; from LXVI to LXIX; from LXXXI to LXXXVI; from XCIII to CI; from CIV to CVII (this portion of the book is quite scrambled); from CXLVI to CXLIX; from CLII to CLV; from CLXXX to CLXXXII; from CCLVI to CCLIX; from CCLXXVIII to CCLXXXI; possibly lacking CCCXXXIII but this portion of the book also has scrambled pagination, so it could be a printer's error; from CCCXCVII to CCCCI … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALLA, Laurentius [INCUNABLE]
Bartholomaeus de Zanis, Venice, 1488. Cartonnage d'attente de la fin du dix-huitième / début du dix-neuvième siècle Un volume petit in Folio (302x206 mm), (102) feuillets non chiffrés. Signatures : [A]6, [a-c]8, [d-e]6,[f-l]8, [m-n]6. Collationné complet Dos abîmé et décollé Annotations manuscrites marginales anciennes, de plusieurs mains (certaines un peu atteintes par le ciseau du relieur). Galeries de vers, assez nombreuses vers la fin du volume, mais heureusement bien perpendiculaires à l’ouvrage, n’affectant le texte que de manière ponctuelle d’autres, marginales, sont transversales. Oeuvre maîtresse de l'humaniste Laurent Valla. Il y présente une défense brillante du latin classique dans laquelle il oppose l’élégante prose des écrivains latins de l'Antiquité à la maladresse du latin d'Église médiéval. Ce travail influença le mouvement des humanistes de réformer le style de la prose latine vers une direction plus classique et cicéronienne. Diffusé d'abord sous forme manuscrite, il fut imprimé pour la première fois à Rome en 1471, se répandit dans toutes les écoles d'Europe et devint un manuel de référence pendant tout le XVIe siècle.

Possibly the herbal of Johann von Cube (Herbarius zu teutsch und von aller handt Kreuteren, Augsburg, 1488) as that contained cap. CLII on the dandelion, as does this volume. But lacking title page, this Hortus Sanitatus is hard to identify the specific edition. There are 182 leaves (364 pp.) of double columned gothic type descriptions of flora and fauna with woodcuts contemporary handcolored and 8 leaves of indices at rear. A poor to fair copy with remains of binding, but lacking rear board, text fair to good, first several leaves somewhat worn, with tide-marks from damp staining to some pages; the majority of pages are very good, but last several leaves show wear and patching, numbers handwritten on tops of almost all pages, moderate wear to the bottom margins of some leaves. With interesting provenance, noted in typed sheets inserted at the beginning of the book: the book came to a doctor Hagemann of Pittsburgh from a Mrs. Sartein; she and her husband were inmates of the Pittsburgh City Farm, an almshouse, where both of them died in 1884. While the book is in shoddy condition, it is gloriously housed in a full sprinkled calf clamshell slipcase. Fair.

"The Odyssey- Book XVII". Complete Book XVII from the first printing of the Works of Homer in 1488. The first printed edition of Homer, this is also one of the earliest printed editions of any ancient Greek author. The edition was edited by Chalcondylas, a key figure in the transmission of Greek to Renaissance Italy, and funded by two Florentine brothers, Bernardo and Nerio Nerli. Bernardo explains in the preface that the lack of books has proved troublesome for students of Greek literature and he decided to address the problem by publishing a Greek text. Bernardo does not identify the manuscripts used by Chalcondylas, but he mentions that the editor consulted the twelfth-century commentary of Eustathius [BHL A1]. Published by Bernardus Nerlius & D. Damilas, Florence, Italy, 1488. Incunable, printed in its original Greek language. Folio [9" x 13"], 9 leaves, 39 lines in Greek. Bound in modern cloth with paper label.

Telemachus precedes them, cheering his mother with his presence and the stories of his trip. With the prince is a seer, Theoclymenus, who tells Penelope that Odysseus is on Ithaca now, gathering information. The queen wishes that she could believe him, but she cannot.

Mandeville, John.
Strasbourg, Johann Prüss, 1488. Folio (197 x 260 mm). [89] (of 90) leaves, with the title supplied in facsimile on laid paper. Gothic type, with over 150 woodcut text illustrations. Late 18th-century white deerskin (likely a remboîtage). Seventh German edition of Mandeville's "Travels" (the third by Prüss, containing his earliest woodcut series). Purportedly an account by an English knight of his journey to the Holy Land, Mandeville's adventures around the Arabian Peninsula, Palestine, Egypt, India, and China were accepted as true throughout the Middle Ages and set the stage for the entire genre or travel literature. Compiled from various sources in the mid-14th century, probably originally in French, the book rapidly became one of the most popular secular texts prior to the invention of printing. The earliest recorded edition is a Dutch version printed ca. 1477; the earliest in German appeared in 1480, and all German inculabular editions are extremely rare. The present version is the work of the canon of Metz, Otto von Diemeringen (d. 1398). Nearly half the text deals with the Holy Land and routes there from Europe, and the remainder chiefly with Asia and Africa. - Binding rubbed and lightly soiled. Some marginal browning and staining, early marginalia imperfectly washed, scattered marginal repairs not affecting text or illustrations; two small wormholes in blank outer and lower margin of last few leaves. Provenance: formerly in the collection of Mary Schell Collins (1864-1948), wife of the Philadelphia publisher Philip S. Collins; sold by her descendants.

The massive study in 30 volumes covers the country its history (8 volumes), historical documents (2 volumes), agriculture (2 volumes), botany (8 volumes), zoology (8 volumes) and includes two plate volumes, illustrating these subjects.In 1830, the French botanist Claude Gay (1800-1873) was asked by the government of Chile to make a detailed description the country. Gay travelled through Chile during eleven years to do all the scientific research he needed for his work. The result was the present work, the first complete description of Chilean history and a model in modern historiography, with its meticulous examination of sources and documents. Gay carried out some of the first investigations about Chilean flora, fauna, geology and geography.The historical and cultural illustrations were made mostly made after drawings by Gay himself, but also some by Rugendas, the botanical plates are based on the drawings of Riocreux, the entomological on the drawings of Blanchard, and the drawings of the rest of the zoological plates are made by several artists, including Gay, Werner, Prevost, Prêtre, Delahaye and Oudart. Some occasional minor foxing (primarily in the text volumes), otherwise a very good and attractive set. [Attributes: First Edition]

A poor to fair copy with remains of binding, but lacking rear board, text fair to good, first several leaves somewhat worn, with tide-marks from damp staining to some pages; the majority of pages are very good, but last several leaves show wear and patching, numbers handwritten on tops of almost all pages, moderate wear to the bottom margins of some leaves. With interesting provenance, noted in typed sheets inserted at the beginning of the book: the book came to a doctor Hagemann of Pittsburgh from a Mrs. Sartein; she and her husband were inmates of the Pittsburgh City Farm, an almshouse, where both of them died in 1884. While the book is in shoddy condition, it is gloriously housed in a full sprinkled calf clamshell slipcase. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

PIO II (Enea Silvio PICCOLOMINI)
Plannck 1488-90 ca., Roma. In-4°; cc. (4), l'ultima bianca. In fine al testo una estesa nota manoscritta. Legatura in cartonato semplice.Molto raro.Il Tractatulus fu pubblicato autonomamente prima di essere incluso nella sua più ampia opera sull'Europa (Historia rerum Friderici?).Enea Silvio Piccolomini narra in questo pamphlet la storia dell'assedio di Costantinopoli da parte dei Turchi di Maometto II, evento che pose l'Europa sotto una minaccia militare e ne decretò una battuta d'arresto anche dal punto di vista culturale. Il resoconto dell'assedio descritto in queste pagine è piuttosto crudo (molti particolari in successive lettere verrano edulcorati); descrive tra l'altro la distruzione di Santa Sofia, la sua riduzione in stalla o lupanare: Iustiniani caesaris opus toto orbe famosum, nudatum sacra suppellectile ad omnes spurcicias patuit?sanctorum imagines aut luto fedate aut ferro delete: altaria diruta. In templis ipsis aut lupanaria meretricum facta aut equorum stabula. Parla di ignominia e irrisione della religione, di stupri e rapine.La politica durante il pontificato di Pio II ebbe come filo conduttore l'azione contro i Turchi ottomani che avevano conquistato Costantinopoli e stavano per espandersi nell'Impero Bizantino. Questo papa sentì fortissima l'urgenza di contrastare l'Islam e fondò per questo scopo anche l'ordine cavalleresco di Santa Maria di Betlemme.IGI 7755; BMC IV, 94.Very rare. The "Tractatulus" was published on its own before beeing included in a wider work about Europe ("Historia rerum Friderici"). Piccolomini tells in this small book the story of … [Click Below for Full Description]

JUSTINIANUS (JUSTINIEN ) & ACCURSIUS
s.l.|[Lyon]: S.n. [Johann Siber], 1488. Fine. S.n. [Johann Siber], s.l. [Lyon] [ca 1488/90], in Folio (30x42cm), 436f. Sig : a6 b-z8 A-P8 Q10 R8 S8 T8 U8 X8 Y8 aa-ff8 gg6., relié. - - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition incunable chez un rare éditeur de la Glose d' Accursius sur le Digeste du Codex de Justinien et du Digeste lui-même. Sous un autre titre et une autre collation, Siber avait auparavant édité des livres du Corpus en 1482 (Hain 9542 , GW 7659). Rare édition incunable entièrement rubriquée du Digeste. Grande marque de l'imprimeur au dernier feuillet, sans le nom de l'imprimeur. On notera par ailleurs qu'il n'y a pas de colophon. On sait que Siber a utilisé cette marque pour un autre de ses livres Lectura super I et II parte codicis , pour ses autres éditions, Jean Siber utilisait d'autres marques. En outre, on retrouve ce même dessin sur fond noir sur la marque de Teodore Ragazzone à Venise (Louis Polain : Marques des imprimeurs et libraires en France au Xve siècle). GW 7666. Absent à la bibliothèque de Lyon et à la BN de France , mais également aux catalogues anglais et à la British Library. L'édition de 1488 semble beaucoup plus rare que celle de 1482 et celle de 1500 qu'on trouve régulièrement dans les bibliothèques, notamment à Bourg en Bresse. On trouve un exemplaire de ce Digeste de 1488 à la bibliothèque de Zurich (collation 438f.) Impression gothique (Le caractère n'est pas le Gothique allemand, mais un caractère plus lisible, entre le Romain et le Gothique) avec le Corpus de Justinien dans un rectangle central (2 colonnes, nombre de lignes variable … [Click Below for Full Description]
