        Super Authenticis

      , 1489. 1489. A Notable Commentary of the Authentica Ubaldis, Angelus de [c.1327-1400]. [Super Authenticis]. [Venice: Baptista de Tortis, 3 March 1489]. 39 of 40 ff. Folio a1, a blank, lacking. Text in parallel columns. Collation: a-e8. Folio (15-1/2" x 11-1/2"). Recent paper-covered boards (illustrated with copies of unrelated incunable leaves), endpapers renewed. Light soiling, corners and spine ends bumped. Text printed in 83-line Gothic type, guide spaces blank. Some toning, light soiling to first leaf, faint dampstining to foot of text bock reaching into text, minor worming to some leaves, first leaf (a2) dust-soiled, fol. b1 mounted on stub, internally clean. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown. A solid copy. * Angelus de Ubaldis, a renowned jurist, was almost as highly regarded as his brother, Baldus de Ubaldis. 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. OCLC locates no copies of this imprint in North America. However, the GW locates copies at the University of Michigan Law School and the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore.

Blattgröße: 18 x 26,8 cm. Incunable woodcut leaf. Selten! Erster Druck der ersten lateinischen Ausgabe in der Ausgabe "H 4411 Variante". Das vollständige Werk umfasst 82 Blätter mit 119 Holzschnitten. Die Fabelsammlung "Directorium Humanae Vitae" hat ihren Ursprung in Indien. Das altindische "Pancatantra" (Die fünf Weisheitsfälle) gelangte über Persien im 8. Jahrhundert nach Arabien und lautete nun "Abdallah ibn Al-Muqaffa" Diese arabische Übersetzung al-Muqaffa's wird in den darauffolgenden Jahrhunderten ins griechische (Simeon Sethis), spanische und hebräische (Rabbi Joel) übersetzt. Das "Directorium Humanae Vitae" ist nun eine Übersetzung der hebräischen Version ins Lateinische, die von Johannes von Capua angefertigt wurde. Johannes de Capua war als Konvertit, der hebräischen Sprache seiner jüdischen Vorfahren nicht sonderlich mächtig und schuf seine lateinische Fassung, die sich nicht selten über die Regeln der Grammatik und der Syntax hinwegsetzt, zwischen 1263 bis 1278.

Prüss erwarb die Holzschnitte in den achtziger Jahren des 15. Jahrhunderts und druckte die lateinische Fassung der Fabelsammlung dreimal um 1489 und noch einmal um 1490. Bisher werden diese vier Varianten mit der Hain-Bezeichnung angegeben, da die GW-Angaben GWM 13173-75 und GWM 13177 noch nicht überarbeitet sind.

Lienhart Ysenhut aus Heydeck erwarb 1468 das Bürgerrecht in Basel und kaufte 1471 ein Haus in der Weißen Gasse. Überwiegend war er als Formschneider, Briefdrucker, Heiligendrucker, Kartenmacher und Buchdrucker bis etwa 1510 tätig. Da Ysenhut in Anbetracht der wenigen erhaltenen Drucke über verhältnismässig viele Typen verfügte, drängt sich die Vermutung auf, dass manche Erzeugnisse seiner Presse ganz verloren gingen. Sein Druckersigne zeigt unter anderem einen Eisenhut (vgl. Geldner I, 123). Das Blatt ist online einsehbar: http://mdz10.bib-bvb.de/~db/0002/bsb00029502/images/index.html?seite=161

Folio [31 x 21.5], (254) ff.. two columns with 54 lines per page, with head-lines for day, subject and number of sermons and first lines; capital spaces with guide letters, capitals paragraph markers and underlining rubricated in red; two floriate initials on first textleaf. Bound in contemporary calf over wooden boards, raised bands on spine, covers ruled in blind, catches partially present, spine re-backed. Liturgical vellum ms leaves used as pastedowns on front and back covers; ownership inscription of the Carthusian house of Castermark on front endleaf. A very clean, fresh, and wide-margined copy, excellent. Scarce second edition (first, Utrecht 1475) of the Lenten sermons of St. Bernardino da Siena, whose scathing critiques of ostentatiousness and power-politics in Renaissance Italy earned him enduring fame among the masses. There is no copy of the first edition in America. The 66 sermons here represent Bernardino at his most vehement - those given during Lent to encourage penitence among his listeners. He discusses idolatry (sermon 11), the fear of God (sermon 31), and most famously, the vainty of women (sermon 47): divided into three parts, the sermon attacks the immoderate use of cosmetics and extravagant coiffures; the wearing of trains; and the use of elaborate hats and headdresses, ending with a darkly humorous comparison of the modern woman with the idealised vision in Revelation 12:1. Recognized as one of the most influential preachers of the 15th century, Bernardino (1380-1444) occupied a sometimes contradictory place in Italian affairs during and long after his lifetime. As Old remarks (p. 546), "for the theologian, what makes fifteenth-century Italian preaching most interesting is its struggle with the Renaissance.Neither Bernardino nor Savonarola could be called Renaissance preachers - they were thoroughly medieval. The preachers of the day were both nourished and challenged by the Renaissance, to be sure, but their preaching was medieval. And yet the two preaching orders, the Franciscans and the Dominicans, did so much to inspire the Renaissance.". Going further, Old has identified a strong tradition of itinerant preaching dating from Bernardino all the way up to modern American Protestantism: according to his recent analysis, "it was this kind of revival season that the Franciscans made such an imporant part of the spiritual life of Geneva a generation before the Reformation and that Calvin continued in his Holy Week sermons during his ministry in that city. This same approach was developed further in the communion seasons of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Scotland. From Scotland this devotional tradition was taken to the colonies, where the preachers of the Great Awakening popularized it on the American frontier." (p 564) The first edition of 1475 appeared under a different title (De vita christiana) and is exceedingly rare, with ISTC recording a total of 7 copies worldwide, none in America. ISTC locates copies of this edition at BPL, Yale, PML, Notre Dame, Free Library, Huntington, Bonaventure, and LC. * Incunable STC 1b00346000; BMC III.751; Goff B-346; GW 3882; cf also Old, Hughes Oliphant, The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church: The Medieval Church (1999) and Pacetti, D.

L?opera si compone di tre parti - o meglio quattro, poiché la ?pars secunda? è a sua volta divisa in due - che nel ?400 vennero per lo più stampate separatamente. La ?prima pars? tratta della natura e degli attributi di Dio, della creazione, del cosmo e dell'uomo; la ?prima pars secunde partis? è dedicata alle questioni etiche, alle passioni, al peccato, alle leggi (le altre due parti trattano le virtù teologali e cardinali, la vita di Cristo, la resurrezione, e i sacramenti).

        DE CONSOLATIONE PHILOSOPHIAE, De disciplina scholarium (with the commentary of Thomas Aquinus)

      Venice: (Bonetus Locatellus) for Octavianus Scotus, 24 December, 1489. Folio, printed in 8&#39;s; 102 leaves; text surrounded by commentary, double columns, first page with word "Boetius", printer&#39;s woodcut device on recto of final leaf, printed in Latin with gothic script; of interest are the contemporary manuscript margin notes in Latin, including a handwritten purchase entry in lower margin of the first page of Frater Matthaeus Dapyro dated, Venice, September 12, 1491, and many "pointing hand" icons or "fists", the use of which disappeared after the turn of the century. Contemporary quarter, blind-tooled calf over bevelled, Italian wooden boards, original head and tail bands over alum-tawed leather. Also of interest are the vellum end-leaves from a 14th-century manuscript complete with rubricated initials with an attempt, or maybe practice, at illumination on an initial "R" on the verso of rear leaf. Of importance are the remnants of four crude leather closures or clasps to the upper board (two at the fore-edge and one each at the head and tail), each recessed within the wood and still with their two nails or grommets, remnants of handwritten, vellum spine labels. Leather over spine cracking with pieces missing from head and tail, some worming to the leather and also some worm holes to the wooden boards, upper corners of boards rounded, front cover coming away from the spine, which offers a most interesting glimpse at the binding techniques used.

        Aphorismi...Secundum Doctrinam Galieni Medicorum Principis

      158 unnumbered leaves including the blank r6, 36 lines plus headline, Roman type, initial spaces with printed guide letters. Small 4to (207 x 147 mm.), a superb modern binding of brown morocco over wooden boards (first two leaves carefully rehinged at inner margin, very faint dampstain in margin of about a dozen leaves), covers blind-tooled in a knotwork pattern, spine blind-tooled in compartments, gilt edges gauffered in a similar pattern, brass clasps. Bologna: Franciscus (Plato) de Benedictis, for Benedictus Hectoris, 29 May 1489. First edition of the first important Jewish medical book, written by the most famous of the early Jewish physician/philosophers. It contains Maimonides&#39;s analysis and critique of Galen&#39;s medical theories, written in the form of 1500 aphorisms and 42 critical comments arranged in 24 chapters relating to anatomy, physiology, general pathology, the pulse and urine, gynecology, gymnastics, diagnosis, therapeutics, fevers, bloodletting, emetics, surgery, hygiene, dietetics, drugs, and so forth with a 25th chapter of critical matter (for details of the contents, see Sarton, II, pp. 371-73). At the end are added the Aphorismi of the Arabic physician Mesuë, the Liber de Secretis in Medicina of Rhases and the Prognostica of Hippocrates. Maimonides (1135-1204), was a famous Jewish philosopher and an erudite and experienced physician, a soberly observant clinician wholly free from mysticism, faithful to Galen but not averse to criticizing him. Maimonides was born in Cordova but when driven out of Spain for refusing to convert to Islam he settled permanently in Cairo. His erudition and medical skill earned him the appointment of physician to the court of Saladin, the sultan of Egypt. His medical writings deeply influenced not only Muslim and Jewish but also Christian doctors, for example Henry of Mondeville and Guy de Chauliac. From 1177, Maimonides was head of the Jewish community of Egypt. This work, created towards the end of his life, was originally written in Arabic, then translated into Hebrew in the thirteenth century, and into Latin to be published in print. It is the most important and influential work of the most revered early Jewish physician. Fine and crisp copy. Three very small stamps in lower margin of first page and deleted inscription in upper margin. &#10087; D.S.B., IX, pp. 27-32. Garrison-Morton 6495.7 (this first edition) and 53 (the 1500 reprint). Goff M-77. Klebs 644.1. Stillwell, The Awakening Interest in Science, 444. See Friedenwald, Jewish Luminaries in Medical History, pp. 7-11 etc. & Printing & the Mind of Man, p. 9. .
