VD16 S5000. - Kuczynski 2445. - NDB XXIV, 63f. - Nicht bei Knaake. - Der Reformator und Mystiker Caspar Schwenckfeld (1489-1561) bekleidete nach juristischen Studien ohne akademischen Abschluss zunächst das Amt des Hofrats unter Friedrich II. von Liegnitz-Brieg-Wohlau, welches er 1523 wegen seiner zunehmenden Schwerhörigkeit aufgeben musste. Im Laufe der Abendmahlsstreitigkeiten entwickelte er im Austausch mit Luther und in der Auseinandersetzung mit Zwingli und Erasmus seine eigene Konzeption und spiritualistische Abendmahlstheologie. Zusammen mit anderen "Sakramentsverächtern" aus der Liegnitzer Bruderschaft feierte er in Liegnitz ab 1526 kein Abendmahl mehr, was zum Bruch mit Luther und Angriff durch diesen in der hauptsächlich gegen Andreas Karlstadt gerichteten Schrift "Wider die himmlischen Propheten vom Sakrament" führte. Der Streit eskalierte und führte schließlich zum Exil, zunächst nach Straßburg, später nach Ulm, Augsburg und Esslingen, wo Schwenckfeld inkognito im Franziskanerkonvent lebte und schrieb. Bis zu seinem Tode wirkte er vor allem im Verborgenen, da die Verfolgung seiner Anhänger mit der Zeit weiter verschärft wurden. - "Zahlreiche, v. a. zum Adel und Patriziat zählende Anhänger von S. sammelten sich nach seinem Tod in Gemeinschaften in Süddeutschland und Schlesien, wo die Schwenckfelder zu einer starken Volksbewegung avancierten, doch infolge der Verfolgungen durch Lutheraner und Katholiken dezimiert wurden. 1735 flohen etwa 500 Schwenckfelder nach Nordamerika, wo in Pennsylvania noch heute eine Denomination existiert, die das "Corpus Schwenckfeldianorum" veröffentlichte" (NDB). - Erstausgabe der zusammengefaßten vier Sermone. Verfassername am Schluß zeitgenössisch durchgestrichen mit dem Vermerk "1579. Soli Deo gloria". Am Bund vereinzelt Wurmspuren. Einige wenige Seitenstege fachgerecht hinterlegt. - Insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar des seltenen Werkes.

Provenance: Hilprand Brandenburg, with his hand-colored woodcut armorial bookplates (Warnecke 245) in each volume, part of his donation to the Carthusians at Buxheim, with contemporary ex-dono inscription in the hand of the prior, Jakob Louber, in each volume: Liber Cartusiensium in Buchshaim prope Memmingen proveniens a confratre nostro domino hilprando Brandenburg de Bibraco / Donato sacerdote / continens primam [secundam / tertiam] Quinguagena Augustini super Psalterio / Oretur pro eo et pro quibus desideravit, Buxheim library stamps at foot of first text pages and stencilled shelfmark labels on spines; Graf von Otstein; Graf Hugo von Waldbott-Bassenheim, sale, Munich (Carl Förster), 20 September 1883.*** Second edition of Augustine's commentary on the Psalms, and his most important exegetical work. The Amerbach correspondence provides a date for the edition. Augustine's commentaries on the Psalms were not conceived as a single work; later exegetes collected his sermons and treatises on the subject to form the work as we know it. "Under the influence of Ambrose, Augustine turned to the Old Testament, which he had rejected earlier as a Manichean, to find the authority of faith. Within the framework of the Psalms, expressing the individual's personal relationship with God, Augustine developed a theological explication which went beyond Biblical exegesis. According to Butler, the Explanatio psalmorum contains Augustine's most complete description of a mystical experience" (M. Ford, Christ, Plato, Hermes Trismegistus, Catalogue of the incunabula in the Bibliotheca Philosophical Hermetica I:30). This copy was among the approximately 450 books donated by Hilprand Brandenburg to the library of the Carthusian monastery at Buxheim. The son of a patrician family from Biberach in Swabia, Brandenband studied in Pavia and Basel. After his ordination in 1473 he held a number of ecclesiastical preferments in southern Germany, and in 1506 he became a priest-donate (sacerdos donatus, or oblate) of the Carthusian monastery at Buxheim. He had acquired books since his student years, for himself and for donation to churches. By the end of his life he had given the monastery a total of 450 manuscripts and printed books. All of the known books from Brandenburg's Buxheim donation bear, as here, the famous woodcut bookplate, one of the earliest printed bookplates, as well as a contemporary monastic inscription recording the donation to the monastery. While Brandenburg's collection and his striking bookplate have deservedly received much scholarly attention, somewhat less attention has been paid to the writer of the ex-dono inscriptions, who was none other than the Prior of the Monastery, the brilliant curator-librarian Jakob Louber (d. 1513). Louber had served as Prior and Librarian of the Carthusian Monastery at Basel for twenty years before becoming Prior at Buxheim in 1502, where he remained until 1507. Having built up the library of the Basel Carthusians from scratch, through his energetic and politically astute solicitation of donations, from local notables as well as local printers, Louber carried over the same curatorial practices to Buxheim. It is likely that his influence was a not negligible factor in attracting Hilprand Brandenburg and his book-donation to the Buxheim Charterhouse (cf. Auge, p. 414). Indeed, Louber may even have had some involvement in the insertion of the Brandenburg bookplates. Victor Scholderer noted that while the style of the bookplate woodblock probably indicates an earlier creation date, the actual impressions of the bookplate seem to date from the turn of the century, at the earliest: Scholderer pointed out that some of the bookplates are printed on the reverse of printer's waste from the shop of Albrecht Kunne at Memmingen, near Buxheim, and that the types used for the unidentified waste text include Kunne's type 7, one of the last types adopted by him before 1501. Scholderer added that "it is impossible to say why the block, which was doubtless made for Brandenburg himself, should not have been used until it became the property of Buxheim" (p. 221).

        De trinitate contra Arianos. Aurelius Augustinus. De trinitate.

      Leonardus Pachel, 1489. In - folio, 163 carte (di 166, mancano *1 e *2 contenenti l'epistola a Guidantonio Arcimboldi, Arcivescovo di Milano; e l'ultima carta bianca). Cartonatura del XVIII secolo con piatti marmorizzati. Ilario di Poitiers, teologo, filosofo, padre e dottore della Chiesa, proveniva da una aristocratica famiglia pagana. Ricevette il battesimo da adulto e padre di famiglia, e, nel 353, fu acclamato dai religiosi della sua comunità Vescovo di Poitiers. Prese parte al sinodo di Béziers nel 356 e al concilio di Seleucia nel 359. Lottò strenuamente contro l'arianesimo tanto da essere considerato l'Atanasio dell'Occidente. Nel 356 venne mandato in esilio in Frigia dall'imperatore Costanzo II. Durante il suo esilio S. Ilario continuò, attraverso le sue lettere, a dirigere la sua chiesa, e approfittò del tempo per comporre il suo capolavoro, De Trinitate in 12 libri, opera importantissima dove difende la consustanzialità del "Figlio" con il "Padre", in opposizione all'idea ariana. S. Ilario morì nel 367 dopo essersi ritirato nella sua diocesi. Pio IX lo proclamò Dottore della Chiesa nel 1851. Cfr. Goff H269; BMC IV, 777; Hain 8666.

        Summa de ecclesia contra impugnatores potestatis summi pontificis. Rome, Eucharius Silber, 1489

      Silber Eucharius, 1489. in - folio, ff. 218 (senza numeraz. né segnatura, ma: a - e8, f6, g - h8, i6, k - l8, m6, n - q8, r6, s8, t6, u - x - y8, z6, A - B8, C6, D8, E - F6, *4), legatura coeva in pergamena, titolo ms. sul piatto ant. e sul taglio inf., il dorso rifatto nel XVII sec., con titolo in oro. Precede la lettera al lettore di Gerolamo Scoptius; in fine il registro e 4 ff. di Indici. Importante opera del teologo domenicano e Cardinale, nato a Valladolid nel 1388 e morto a Roma nel 1468, zio di Tommaso Torquemada; relativa al governo della Chiesa ed alla autorità del Pontefice, fu scritta in risposta al ''De concordantia catholica di Nicolò Cusano'' e venne a lungo sfruttata dai difensori dell'autorità pontificia contro ogni forma di conciliarismo. Il f. a1 reca al recto il titolo in grandi caratteri impresso in rosso su 9 linee: "Joannis de Turre cremata Cardina/lis s.xisti Aurea e legans suma contra impugnatores pote/statis summi pontificis .."; al verso la prefazione dello Scoptius. Questo titolo fu impresso in pochissimi esemplari, ma su un foglio aggiunto, bianco al verso, con la prefazione al verso di altro foglio bianco al recto; infatti Hain è in 219 ff., e Pellechet in 220 ff., con il sesto bianco. In tutti gli altri esempl. (BMC, Polain, Oates, 2 Pellechet, 3 Vaticana, Choix d'Olschki) il recto della prefazione è bianco, con 218 ff., e i 4 ff. d'indice posti all'inizio; la nostra variante li deve invece avere alla fine, come chiaramente dichiarato sul titolo. Questo titolo fu impresso in rosso in pochissimi esemplari; apparentemente solo quello citato da Hain, uno di quelli citati da Pellechet, e 2 su 5 della Vaticana. Entrambi gli esemplari della B. Nazionale di Firenze non hanno il titolo in rosso. È chiaro che l'edizione ebbe dei problemi tipografici dovuti alla difficoltà di stampare in rosso sullo stesso foglio. Straordinario incunabulo romano di grande formato, di notevole rarità. Bellissimo esemplare a grandi margini, nitidamente impresso su carta forte (lievi fioriture marginali a pochi ff., forellino di tarlo nel margine inf. degli ultimi ff.).

The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. 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 Manuel 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.

        SERMONES DE LAUDIBUS SANCTORUM

      Neapoli: Per Mathias Moravus, 31 January, 1489. FIRST EDITION y. This collection of sermons in praise of various saints was the final book of Caracciolo, who could claim to be the most widely printed living author of the 15th century (ISTC records more than 70 editions of his works in print before his death in 1495). A celebrated and wildly popular preacher, Caracciolo was lauded by popes and princes, but regarded more critically by his fellow Franciscans and by Erasmus, who was particularly disapproving of his rather flamboyant practice of dressing as a knight, complete with sword, when addressing crowds in support of a new crusade. A native of Olmuetz in Moravia, Mathias Moravus (fl. 1472-94) had worked as a scribe and illuminator before turning to printing, as evidenced by his work on a manuscript of the Epistles of Saint Jerome dated 1468, done for the Bishop Moses Buffarello (Schoenberg Database ID #61548). Haebler suggests that Mathias started his printing career as an apprentice to Antonio Mathiae in Genoa, before going out on his own. He moved to Naples in 1475, becoming the leading printer in that city after the departure of Sixtus Riessinger. Over the next 20 years, he produced about 60 works, as recorded by ISTC. In the dedication here, Mathias notes that he has printed 2,000 copies of this work--a risk Haebler observes was mitigated by the protective rules of the kingdom of Naples, which granted him "the safeguard of a privilege which forbade the reprinting and importing of another edition of the work as long as his edition was on sale." Despite this unusually voluminous printing, only six copies of the present edition have appeared at auction in the past 40 years, the last in 1991, and only four North American libraries hold copies.. 204 x 160 mm. (8 x 6 1/4"). [224] leaves. Double column, 50 lines, gothic type. FIRST EDITION. Later limp vellum with gilt lettering on spine. In a green linen clamshell box. Title in ink on recto of first leaf (18th century?); page numbers in ink added by an earlier hand; page numbers in pencil added by a later hand. Goff C-143; BMC VI, 864. Small tear at head of spine, minor wear to covers; two blanks not original, repairs to last three leaves affecting portions of about a dozen lines of text, some foxing to first two leaves, minor dampstain to first few gatherings, occasional small mildew spots to about a dozen leaves, otherwise an exceptionally clean and well-preserved copy.

Ludwig von Renchen aus Baden erwarb 1485 ein Haus in Köln und begann im gleichen Jahr seine Druckertätigkeit. Da er sein Haus 1490 wieder verkaufte geht man davon aus, dass es ihm ab diesem Zeitpunkt finanziell schlechter ging. Er ist bis 1505 als Drucker nachweisbar. Die in diesem Plenarium verwendeten Holzschnitte waren davor im Besitz von Heinrich Knoblochtzer in Strassburg. (vgl. Geldner 1968, 99)

      Durling 2993; Hirsch IV, 160; ICCU (9 copies); Waller 6300. Third(?) edition, by the printers and publishers of the first, of a famous treatise on syphilis by the Italian physician Niccolò Massa (1489-1569), professor of anatomy in Venice. It stresses the important role sexual intercourse plays in the contraction of syphilis, though he also believes it could arise spontaneously without sexual contact. He gives a comprehensive description of the symptoms and effects of the so-called French disease (the French sometimes called it the Neapolitan disease), including its neurological manifestations, and discusses the role of diet, sleep and exercise, together with the use of drugs, bloodletting, leeches and guaiac in the treatment of syphilis. The first edition is dated 1507, but was actually published in 1527. It is Massa's best-known work and remained popular throughout his life.With numerous early manuscript annotations in the margins. These have been attributed to the pioneering French surgeon Ambroise Paré (ca. 1510-1590) but we have not confirmed the attribution. With the title-page border and some of the manuscript annotations very slightly shaved, but otherwise in good condition, with some water stains in the lower inside corner of the last 3 quires and a darker marginal stain in the last. The binding is rubbed and the boards slightly warped.

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.

(Nürnberg, Petreius) für Hans Metzker (Johann Singriener d. Ä.) in Wien, 1534. VD16 T 1213. STC 243. Apponyi III, 1691. Dodgson I, 527. Denis 387. Röttinger 2-11. – Erste deutsche Ausgabe der berühmten ungarischen Chronik des Johannes de Thurocz (1435-1488). Die seinem Vorgesetzten, Kanzler Thomas von Drag gewidmete Chronica Hungarorum hatte Thorucz nach dem 29. Juli 1485 zur Einnahme von Tulln begonnen und vollendete sie kurz nach dem 14. August 1487, dem Tag der Einnahme der Wiener Neustadt durch den Ungarischen König Matthias Corvinus (1458-1490), der 1485 Wien erobert hatte. Die Herausgabe der Ungarnchronik in Brünn veranlasste der Olmützer Bischof Johannes Filipecz. Gleichzeitig Bischof von Várad und Kanzler des Königs, saß er mit Thomas Drag im Kronrat; beide wollten mit dem schön illustrierten Buch ihrem König und seinen Einzügen in Wien und Wiener Neustadt huldigen. Übersetzt wurde die Chronik "durch Hansen Haugen zum Freystein" und auf den neuesten Standt gebracht, in dem etwa auch schon die Schlacht bei Mohacs im Jahre 1526 Erwähnung findet. Sie ist eine der prächtigsten Holzschnittbücher der Zeit mit den Illustrationen von dem Nürnberger Baumeister, Dekorateur, Goldschmied, Maler und Illustrator Peter Flötner (1490-1546), der insbesondere eine wesentliche Rolle bei der Einführung der italienischen Renaissancemotive und -architekturen in Süddeutschland spielte. Von seinen teils wiederholten Holzschnitten tragen fünf sein Monogramm "P.F" und andere auch seine Zeichen, einen Klöppel und ein Balleisen. Der berühmte Titelholzschnitt zeigt König Ferdinand im Krönungsornat auf dem Thron mit Krone, Szepter und Reichsapfel, hier in grandiosem Kolorit in leuchtenden Farben und mit reicher Goldhöhung, einem schweren grünen Mantel über der hellroten Tunika mit weißer Schnürkrause und darüber der Goldkette mit dem Orden des Goldenen Vlieses. Ferdinand empfängt einen Gesandten, während sich rechts unten ein Hund mit goldgelb-braunen Fell auf den Schachbrettfliesen räkelt. – Vorsätze erneuert, Titelblatt mit größeren Fehlstellen oben und unten (nur geringer Buchstabenverlust) und komplett aufgezogen, die folgenden Lagen mit sorgsam angesetzten Fehlstellen, vor allem oben rechts, durchgehend leicht, nur wenige Blätter etwas stärker gebräunt und braunfleckig, sonst sehr sauber und kaum fleckig, abgesehen von den hier und da durchschlagenden Flecken des Kolorits. Ein Wurmgang im unteren Rand durch ein paar Lagen, sonst kaum Papierschäden oder sonstige Läsuren. Insgesamt ein sehr schönes, durchgehend wohlerhaltenes Exemplar in bemerkenswert schönem Altkolorit mit außergewöhnlich nuancierten Farben und Farbverläufen. So sind nicht nur die Holzschnitte auf feinste Art koloriert, sondern auch alle der zahlreichen Initialen. Der möglicherweise aus einer Augsburger Werkstatt stammende zeitgenössische Einband zeigt neben Ornamentrollen und Blindfileten eine sehr hübsche Profilmedaillonrolle mit Kandelaberfüllungen und auf dem Vorderdeckel die noch recht gut im Streiflicht sichbtare Wappengoldprägung mit dem Titel "Der Hungern Chronica". Das Wappen mit Streifen, Doppelkreuz, Löwen und drei Löwenköpfen. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First edition of a richly illustrated history of the Dutch East Indian Company, including the lives of all 28 Dutch Governors-General arranged chronologically from Pieter Both, appointed in 1609, to Jacob Mossel, appointed in 1752. 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 view are by the artist, engraver and print-seller Jacobus van der Schley (1715-1779), a pupil of Bernard Picart. He based many of his charts on those of J.N. Bellin, Ingénieur hydrographe de la Marine at Paris, a chartmaker whose high standards provided for 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.

With the range of 1224 pages and 116 wood-engraved decorations (a picture engraved into wood and hand painted) , it is one of the rarest incunabula in Czech history. </p><p>It is being published in a limited edition of 199 pieces. </p><p>Kutna Hora Bible was printed in 1489 (first-print &#150; incunabula) by Martin of Tisnov, Master of the craft guild of bookmakers. He did not apply himself to the printing craft until quite late age (at the time of the Kutna Hora Bible he was around 70 years old). Originally he was a copy clerk and writer, who even at his advanced age let himself be seized by the new book-printing technology, which turned the book market upside-down at that time. </p><p>The creation of this remarkable book was marked by a great rivalry between Prague and Kutna Hora in the late 15th century. Kutna Hora was in the bloom of prosperity and its citizens did not hesitate to support the generous loan of 10 threescore groschen to Master Martin in order to get their own printed Bible as soon as possible. In the end Prague had its &#147;Prague Bible&#148; one year ahead of Kutna Hora, but Kutna Hora Bible excels in all other attributes. Not only it is richly illustrated, but also has a few more pages, which means that with its 612 sheets it is the largest Czech incunabula. What is fascinating on Kutna Hora Bible from the very first sight is the book&#146;s unity, consistency of writing with painted initials, the overall harmony of composition and particular details. </p><p>Foil size, i. E. Approximately 30 cm in height and 21 cm in width, the Bible in its 612 sheets is 9 cm thick, 10 cm including its wooden book cover. Only very rarely would the leather upholstery be original, usually the books were rebound later. </p><p>The facsimile accurately reproduces not only the content, but also the craftsmanship and original technology (hardware, tooling leather, bookbinding, etc. ). The whole set is placed in a wooden chest with a richly ornate hinges. An accompanying book is placed in the bottom cushion of the chest. Facsimile alone weighs 5 kg, the whole set more than 8 kg. </p> .

Titt. correnti talora interessati dall'ultima rifilatura ma nell'insieme margini più che soddisfacenti; es. discreto e completo delle due cc. bianche.
