The book ends with an interesting treatise on the actual state of the Dutch East Indies, the VOC and the means to redress the causes of its decline in the last 50 years or so, by the late Governor-General Gustaaf Willem Baron d'Imhoff (1705-1750 in Batavia), who was appointed Governor-Géeneral in 1740 and stayed in Batavia from 1742 onwards.The many interesting portraits, maps, plans and views are by the artist, engraver and print-seller Jacobus van der Schley (1715-1779), a pupil of Bernard Picart. He based many of his nautical charts on those of J.N. Bellin, Ingénieur hydrographe de la Marine at Paris, a chartmaker whose high standards assured the overall accuracy of these charts (Tooley, p. 27). The book gives a wide variety of contemporary information on the Dutch East Indies, as well on other Dutch colonies such as Ceylon, Formosa, Australia and the Cape of Good Hope.With the dated owner's signature, on the front paste-down, of Professor Charles R. Boxer (1904-2000), one of the best British historians of early European overseas expansion and empire building in Asia and elsewhere, who also made some annotations on the fly-leaves. In very good condition and untrimmed, with deckles intact, giving very large margins, with only a few minor marginal stains or defects in the last few leaves. The marbled paper sides are damaged, but the binding is otherwise good.

         Contra poetas impudice loquentes carmen. De suorum temporum calamitatibus.

      Bologna, Rome: Franciscus Plato de Benedictis for B. Hector, 1489. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 1. April 1489. 64 unnumbered leaves. Signatures: a4 b-c8 d-i6 k8. 25 lines, type 1:113R. Colophon on A4v ('Romae die. XX octobris M.cccc.lxxxvii') and on K8r. 4to (195 x 136 mm). Bound in 18th-centruy full vellum, spine with gilt-lettered morocco label (light spotting and browning of vellum), blue-dyed edges. Occasional neat contemporary ink marginalia. Text quite crisp and clean with only very little even browning, short tear at blank inner margin of first leaf. A fine, unstained and wide-margined copy. ----Hain 2386; GW-3246; Goff B89; IGI 1197; ISTC ib00089000; BMC VI 823 - FIRST EDITION, exceptionally rare. The Carmelite monk Baptista Mantuanus (became general of the order in 1513) was one of the most important and most prolific of the Renaissance poets. Vergil was his favorite model, and a monument in Mantua represents these two native poets. His works were read in all the schools of Europe and are a veritable source for the history of civilization during the Renaissance. Shakespeare had to learn him by heart at school (see Love's Labour's Lost, Act IV, Sc. 2.) For the importance and the influence which the author exercised upon contemporary Latin poetry, see Ellinger. Geschichte der Neulateinischen Literatur I, p.103 ff. - Visit our website for additional images and information. Very Good.

         QUADRAGESIMALE DE CHRISTIANA RELIGIONE

      Johann Amerbach not after 1489, Basel - 308 x 208 mm. (12 1/8 x 8 1/4"). [254] leaves. FIRST EDITION. Modern boards covered in incunabular leaves, with manuscript label on spine. Capitals struck in red, paragraph marks in red, numerous three-line initials alternating blue and red. A few contemporary annotations in the margins; title page with the inscription of the cloister of Saint Elisabeth in Runggad near Brixen, and with an erased stamp (of the same?). Goff B-346; BMC III, 757. Front joint with a two-inch crack to tail, head of spine a little tattered, edges a little bumped and rubbed, but otherwise an inoffensive and entirely sturdy binding. Title trimmed one-quarter inch at fore edge, with small open tears to edges, somewhat soiled, and with the erasure of the stamp just showing through on verso, first few leaves a little tattered along fore edge (one with a one-inch marginal tear), final leaf a touch stained and with a few small holes affecting text and margins, text block lightly toned, the occasional marginal blemish, but the bulk of the contents EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN WITH EXCELLENT MARGINS. This is a well-preserved and attractive incunable with text by one of the most renowned and popular orators of the 15th century. Known as the "Apostle of Italy," Bernardine of Siena (1380-1444), was a Franciscan preacher and missionary famed for his sermon-making and eloquent orations. As an ardent reformer, the subjects of sin and repentance were common themes in Bernardine's work; he was particularly concerned with the sin of usury, though he spoke out against all forms of "evil," including sodomy, vanity, and gambling. Although his writings were, as here, published in Latin, Bernardine gave his sermons in the vernacular and, according to the Catholic Encyclopedia, "everywhere adapted himself to the local dialect and parlance" in order to reach the masses. So great was his influence and popularity that Bernardine was canonized only six years after his death and remains one of the most highly venerated saints in Italy still to this day. An active preacher through to his last days, Bernardine's sermons were well-recorded and survive in numerous manuscripts (including several in the Saint's own hand). The present work, containing 66 sermons for the Lent and Easter period, is one of two major collections of Saint Bernardine's sermons printed in the incunabular period (the other is "Quadragesimale de Evangelio Aeterno," printed the same year, also by Amerbach). Several other minor works by Bernardine made their print debut before "De Christiana Religione" and the aforementioned cousin "De Evangelio," but these two are by far the most voluminous, ambitious, and important. According to Pollard, our printer Amerbach (1430-1513) issued the first book from his Basel establishment in 1478, and in his career printed about 100 incunabula, all in Latin and mostly works on theology or Bibles. He was the first printer in his city to use roman type. He also used several fonts that are nearly identical to those of Anton Koberger of Nuremberg, for whom he likely worked at some point in his career. Although this work is held fairly widely in institutions, it is surprisingly rare on the marketplace; we could trace only five copies at auction since 1940. This is a well-preserved and attractive incunable with text by one of the most renowned and popular orators of the 15th century.

      Adams S1461; Durling 4351; Parkinson 2410. First edition of a collection of four medical works, compiled by the Swiss physician Albanus Torinus (1489-1550). The main part of the work consists of De re medica, also known as Medicina Pliniana, a very popular medical text during the Middle Ages. Compiled in the fourth century by an anonymous author, it is generally ascribed to Plinius Valerianus, also called pseudo-Plinius, since it mainly derived from Pliny the Elder's Historia naturalis. Consisting of five books, it gives various medicines and treatments for different diseases, ailments, wounds, tumours etc. Besides Pliny the Elder, the work is heavily based on the works of Galen and Dioscorides, all highly esteemed in the Arabic world.The work also contains three other medical works from different authors. "The contents are all either spurious works or later compilations from genuine works of the authors to whom they are attributed" (Durling). It starts with an introduction to "the art of healing", ascribed to Soranus of Ephesus. The second text is by Oribasius, a Greek medical writer from the fourth century BC. According to Durling, the text is an extract from the first chapter of his Euporista ad Eunapium. The work closes with a botanical text, De virtutibus herbarum, ascribed to Lucius Apuleius Madaurensis, but written by an anonymous author from the fourth century, known as Pseudo-Apuleius.

      - Adams S1461; Durling 4351; Parkinson 2410. First edition of a collection of four medical works, compiled by the Swiss physician Albanus Torinus (1489-1550). The main part of the work consists of De re medica, also known as Medicina Pliniana, a very popular medical text during the Middle Ages. Compiled in the fourth century by an anonymous author, it is generally ascribed to Plinius Valerianus, also called pseudo-Plinius, since it mainly derived from Pliny the Elder's Historia naturalis. Consisting of five books, it gives various medicines and treatments for different diseases, ailments, wounds, tumours etc. Besides Pliny the Elder, the work is heavily based on the works of Galen and Dioscorides, all highly esteemed in the Arabic world.The work also contains three other medical works from different authors. "The contents are all either spurious works or later compilations from genuine works of the authors to whom they are attributed" (Durling). It starts with an introduction to "the art of healing", ascribed to Soranus of Ephesus. The second text is by Oribasius, a Greek medical writer from the fourth century BC. According to Durling, the text is an extract from the first chapter of his Euporista ad Eunapium. The work closes with a botanical text, De virtutibus herbarum, ascribed to Lucius Apuleius Madaurensis, but written by an anonymous author from the fourth century, known as Pseudo-Apuleius. In one of the manuscripts Torinus used, the text was ascribed to the famous Italian physician Antonio Musa Brassavola (1500-1555), an expert on the works of Galen and heavily influenced by his work.The editor of the work, Torinus, was appointed professor of practical medicine at the University of Basel after receiving the degree of doctor in medicine in Montpellier. He translated many Greek texts into Latin, or Latin works into the vernacular, including Vesalius's De humani corporis fabrica.From the library of the Russian tsars, with its letterpress library label with shelf number on paste-down and the coat of arms on the spine.

The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts , some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Deutsch, and David Kandel. It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe. His first geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). In 1540 he published a Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geographia with illustrations. The 1550 edition contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printed in Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographias.

First published in 1474, the Super Authenticis, also known as the Lectura de Authenticis, a commentary on the Authentica, a collection of 134 constitutions of Justinian, later included in the Novels of the Corpus Juris Civilis. It was believed to be a collection intended for Byzantine Italy, but this assumption is doubted today. Ubaldis's commentary was highly regarded; it went through at least 12 editions before 1500. Today, all editions are scarce. The ISTC locates 2 copies of this imprint in North America (University of Michigan Law School, Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore).
