Johannes von Cube (Johann Wonnecke from Kaub) - attributed
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 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.

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.

Se trata de los primeros comentarios bíblicos impresos.De Lyra estuvo familiarizado con el Hebreo y resaltó la necesidad de ir a las fuentes bíblicas originales, más que confiar en las versiones latinas. Usó el Talmud y otros escritos Judíos del siglo !!, para entender las prácticas judías. Siempre hizo énfasis en el sentido literal de los pasajes de la Biblia, más que en explicaciones místicas y alegóricas. REF. Hain, 10365. - Goff N-132

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.

GAY, Claude.
Bradley I, p. 346; Nissen, BBI 695; Nissen, ZBI 1488; Palau 100869 ("Es muy dificil reunir la obra complete"); Sabin 26779; Zimmer, p. 237. Complete set of the first edition of a monumental overview of the natural and civil history of Chile, splendidly illustrated, often in fine hand colouring. 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]

Johannes Von Cube (Johann Wonnecke From Kaub) Or Peter Schoffer
1488. 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; from CCC … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

FairMur (G) 215; Machiels H475; Proctor 9872; VD16 H 6346; for the author: Bietenholz, Contemporaries of Erasmus II, pp. 216-220. First edition of a collection of five famous satirical dialogues by the German humanist Ulrich von Hutten (1488-1523), a friend of Erasmus and one of the most ardent supporters of the Lutheran cause. Von Hutten was also the first prominent victim of syphilis, which adds an interesting detail to the titles of two of the dialogues attacking the Roman church: "Febris prima" and "Febris secunda", that is "First fever" and "Second fever". "Trias Romana" continues in the same vain, just as "Inspicientes", in which Apollo and Phaëton look down upon the Augsburg Diet of 1518, the imperial diet of the Holy Roman Empire. The opening dialogue "Fortuna", on marriage, is illustrated with a lovely allegorical woodcut on the title-page. A few manuscript numbers in the margins. Title-page slightly thumbed and a couple spots, otherwise in very good condition. Vellum a bit soiled and the spine partly cracked, but still firm and good.

Schäfer 294; ein Pergamentexemplar liegt in der BN in Paris); der illuminierte Holzschnitt befindet sich auf der verso-Seite. - Die beiden frühesten Ausgaben des „Rudimentum novitiorum", die erste – lateinische – bei Brandes in Lübeck (1475) und die zweite, die französische unter dem Titel „Mer des hystoires" bei Le Rouge, sind in ihren Illustrationen teilweise aufeinander bezogen, besonders bei der Anlage der Stammbäume hat sich der Formschneider von Le Rouge durch die Lübecker Ausgabe anregen lassen (Details in Katalog Schäfer und bei Baer). Trotz dieser Anregungen gelten die Holzschnitte der Le-Rouge-Ausgabe als eigenständige (E.A. Wright:"The most impressive features of the illustrations of the Mer des Hystoires are entirely new"), und so unterscheiden sich die Holzschnitte, die Alexander d. Gr. in beiden Drucken ins Bild setzen, unverkennbar voneinander (ein Vergleich lässt sich am einfachsten über die jeweiligen Digitalisate der BSB München bzw. der BN Paris durchführen). Wenn E. Spencer – bezogen auf Vérard – schreibt: "None of the woodcuts inked and printed in the vellum copies are ever merely coloured" (in: Trapp [Hg.], Manuscripts in the fifty years after the invention of printing, London 1983, S. 67), so gilt das auch für unsere Alexander-Darstellung auf Papier: Der Illuminator hat über den eingedruckten Holzschnitt eine eigenständige Miniatur gemalt, die der Linienführung des Holzschnittes nicht immer folgt.

Anm. im den Marginalien vers. Hände. Zustand im Preis berücksichtigt. - "The De Astronomica was not formally published until 1482, by Erhard Ratdolt in Venice, Italy. This edition carried the full title Clarissimi Viri Hyginii Poeticon Astronomicon Opus Vtilissimum. Ratdolt commissioned a series of woodcuts depicting the constellations to accompany Hyginus's text. As with many other star atlases that would follow it, the positions of various stars are indicated overlaid on the image of each constellation. However, the relative positions of the stars in the woodcuts bear little resemblance to the descriptions given by Hyginus in the text or the actual positions of the stars in the sky. As a result of the inaccuracy of the depicted star positions and the fact that the constellations are not shown with any context, the De Astronomica is not particularly useful as a guide to the night sky. However, the illustrations commissioned by Ratdolt served as a template for future sky atlas renderings of the constellation figures. The text, by contrast, is an important source, and occasionally the only source, for some of the more obscure Greek myths." (Zitat) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

HYGINUS, Caius Julius.
(In fine:) Venetiis, Thomas de Blavis de Alexandria, 7 giugno 1488. in-4, ff. (56, segn. a-g8), leg. modern m. marocch., dorso a nervetti con tit. oro. Al verso del primo f. figura della sfera astronomica, framezzate al testo 47 belle figure allegoriche delle principali costellazioni, dei pianeti e dei segni zodiacali, per lo più legni in controparte di quelli usati nelle edizioni di Ratdolt del 1482 e 1485; due grandi iniz. e molte altre più piccole ornate su fondo nero, al v. del f. a4 iniz. in inchiostro rosso mano poster., testo in car. rom. Quarta edizione (la prima Ferrara, 1475) di questo testo di mitologia astronomica desunto da fonti greche ed in particolare dai ''Phaenomena'' di Arato, prima raffigurazione delle costellazioni che per oltre un secolo influenzò l'iconografia degli atlanti celesti. Dell'autore (I secolo d.C., detto lgino l'Astronomo per distinguerlo da un altro Igino detto il Bibliotecario) si sa assai poco; egli dedica l'opera ad un certo M. Fabio (forse M. Fabio Marcellino). Ottimo esempl. a pieni margini, in alcuni dei quali si leggono delle chiare postille di mano coeva. ''The woodcuts derive from medieval sources, and depict figures in medieval European costume. these figures were reprinted, and copied in numerous incunable editions, and were the source for the engraved images of Jacon de gheyn and via the latter many of the images in Johannes Bayer.''

TOMMASO D'AQUINO.
Venezia, Johann Lucilius Santritter e Jeronomo de Sanctis, 1488 (XIX kalendas Martii). In - 4°; 30 cc. non numerate; legatura ottocentesca in mezza pelle con tassello e titolo in oro al dorso. Una grande incisione xilografica nel testo alla carta Bii recto; 2 grandi capolettera ornati e altri 39 di minore dimensione, su fondo nero. Marca tipografica in fine. Alcune postille marginali d'antica mano. L'angolo inferiore bianco della carta D sapientemente restaurato (ben lontano dal testo). Assai lievi gore al margine inferiore bianco di poche carte. Buon esemplare (15 x 20,8 cm). Assai rara prima edizione di questa dissertazione, da alcuni attribuita a Tommaso d'Aquino, dedicata a temi di alchimia ma che include anche passaggi relativi alla mineralogia e all'ottica (vd. lo specchio ustorio). Il volume è illustrato da una splendida xilografia (carta Bii, recto), di eccezionale qualità ed importanza in quanto uno dei primi esempi ad illustrare il funzionamento di uno strumento scientifico; l'immagine mostra un uomo con una lente che riflette i raggi solari convogliandoli su del legname per produrre il fuoco: si tratta del cosiddetto "specchio ustorio". Questa xilografia fu incisa da Girolamo De Santis, uno dei pochissimi artisti del suo tempo a non rimanere anonimo. "Cet opuscule est particulièrement intéressant, non seulement par son insigne rareté, par la qualité exceptionnelle du bois dont il est orné, mais encore et surtout parce que l'auteur de ce bois est le seul des graveurs exerçant à Venise à cette époque, qui ne soit pas resté anonyme. Cet artiste, d'un talent si affin … [Click Below for Full Description]
