[Illuminated manuscript leaf on vellum].
1490. Naples: late 15th century. A cutting, 173 mm x 182 mm, with historiated initial 'E' (doubtless the introit 'Ecce advenit... for Mass at Epiphany), 147 mm x 152 mm. Slight spots of rubbing. In an elaborate gold frame. § The Virgin and Child seated on the right with Joseph behind, set among green and yellow hills, painted in full colors and liquid gold, the initial itself in elaborate leafy design in dark red with pink and white heightening entwined with green leaves at the top and bottom, set on a burnished gold ground with colored trefoils in each corner, flecked blue surround, traces of text and music to the right of the initial, verso with parts of 2 lines each of text and of music on a 4-line red stave. Large miniature in the style of the Neapolitan illuminator Cristoforo Majorana, documented in Naples from 1480 until 1492 (cf. F. Avril, Dix siecles d'enluminure italienne, 1984, pp. 176-7, no. 156). The standing kinds are painted with splendid robes, fringed with pearls. The blue flecked border, giving the effect of the whole initial hovering above the vellum, derived from the classicising illumination of Mantua and Padua, and became a feature of Neapolitan manuscripts of the late fifteenth century.

SCUOLA TEDESCA
1490. Xilografia, ultimo quarto del XV secolo, finemente colorata ad acquarello. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata priva di filigrana, con margini, pieghe di carta e piccoli restauri, perfettamente eseguiti, visibili al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione presenta al centro la figura di Cristo seduto su una pietra, con i polsi legati e il capo coronato di spine e circondato dall'aureola. Intorno, 7 episodi della vita di Cristo, disposti su 3 lati, così che, rispettando la forte simbologia cristiana legata al numero 3, le illustrazioni sono 3 per ogni lato. Gli episodi, ad eccezione di uno raffigurante la Circoncisione di Gesù, sono tutti ispirati al ciclo della Passione di Cristo: Gesù nel giardino degli Ulivi; Gesù alla colonna; Gesù deriso dai soldati; Gesù spogliato delle vesti; Gesù inchiodato alla croce; e infine Gesù morente. La disposizione delle scene non segue un ordine cronologico, secondo un uso riscontrabile anche nell'iconografia cristiana più antica. L'opera non è censita dalle bibliografie consultate. Woodcut and watercolour, last quarter of the fifteenth century. A beautiful impression, printed on laid paper without watermark, with margins, paper folds and small repairs perfectly executed, otherwise in excellent condition. The composition has a central figure of Christ sitting on a rock, with his wrists tied and his head crowned with thorns and surrounded by the halo. Around 7 episodes from the life of Christ, arranged on 3 sides, so that, respecting the strong Christian symbolism linked to the number 3, the illust … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anonimo Maestro Milanese (attivo tra il1480 ed il 1492)
1490. Bulino, databile all'ultimo quarto del '400. Buona prova, ben impressa, in tiratura ottocentesca, con margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Non sono conosciuti esemplari di tiratura coeva. Opera molto rara, conosciamo solamente gli esemplari conservati al KC di Berlino; Florence (Galleria degli Uffizi), Milano (Castello Sforzesco), Minneapolis Institute of Arts e ZB di Zurigo. Virgin and Child enthroned, between St Catherine and St Francis; the Virgin sitting on a decorated throne and holding Christ Child on her lap, flanked on the left by Saint Catherine carrying a wheel and a palm, and on the right by Saint Francis holding a book and a cross; a 19thC re-strike. c.1490 This engraving, catalogued by Hind among a group of miscellaneous north Italian prints from about 1460-1500, is a modern one, deriving from a worn plate. Characterised by a double border and horizontal striations on the ground, it seems a product of the late fifteenth-century Milanese school. Other impressions (all modern) are in Berlin; Florence (Galleria degli Uffizi), Milan (Castello Sforzesco), in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; Zürich. A good XIX century impression, with margins, in very good condition. No contemporary impressions are known. TIB 24.2411.015; Hind 1938-48 E.III.70.

Prayer Book; illuminated manuscript on parchment in Latin. ILLUMINATED LATIN PRAYER BOOK FROM THE MIDDLE AGES, France, Lyon, c. 1490-1510. Dimensions, 180 x 125 mm., 58 folios on parchment, complete, written in brown ink in a cursive bookhand on 23 lines, capitals highlighted in yellow throughout, 1-line initials in gold, fine 2-line foliate initials, two fine 4-line foliate initials, ONE SMALL WOODCUT illustration pasted into the book, TWENTY-SIX 7- to 9-line FINELY EXECUTED MINIATURES depicting saints flanked by Renaissance architectural frames. BINDING: Bound in the 18thcentury for Michel de la Cour d'Amonville in brown calf, gilt ex-libris on the front cover, gilt title on the spine, marbled endpapers and edges. TEXT: Delightful Prayer Book illustrated with an extensive cycle of miniatures of saints illustrating the Suffrages the Master of Keble 7, as well as a pasted-in woodcut. As interesting as its origin is its continued active use in the eighteenth-century, witnessed by the binding and elegant title page. Lyon was an important center for illumination at this time and has traditionally been neglected in the scholarly literature. PROVENANCE: The manuscript was written and illuminated in Lyon, c. 1490-1510, as indicated by the style of the script and illumination. Later, it belonged to Michel de la Cour d'Amonville (1690-1756), parliamentary jurist and poet, as per armorial bookplate, inside cover, coat of arms, and gold-tooled name on cover. The manuscript later belonged to Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex (1773-1843). There is evidence of a book plate, now removed … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOOK OF HOURS (USE OF ROME); illuminated manuscript on parchment in Latin with some French, 1490. CHARMING BOOK OF HOURS WITH CLEAN MARGINS, A SOFT PALETTE, AND A LOVELY ARMORIAL BINDING. Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in Latin, calendar and some rubrics in French, France, Loire Valley or Central France (?), c. 1490-1510. Dimensions 143 x 84 mm., ii (modern paper) + 214 + ii (modern paper) folios, lacking 2 leaves, written in brown ink in a cursive bookhand, on 18 lines, ruled in red ink, thirteen 3-6-line blue initials with white highlights, FIVE SMALL MINIATURES, FIVE FULL-PAGE MINIATURES in architectural frames. BINDING: bound in eighteenth-century red morocco, spine with five raised bands gold-tooled with filets, fleurons and crowns; gold-tooled covers with double-fillets and corner fleurons stamped with the arms of Charles de Baschi, binding restored in the nineteenth or early twentieth century, with a box covered with marbled paper. ILLUMINATION: an interesting and hitherto unknown French artist who deserves attention painted this Book of Hours. His miniatures exhibit a certain freedom with traditional iconography and formal arrangements similar to that of artists in Central France and the Loire Valley. Notable are his softly painted landscape vistas, varied architectural frames, and an especially engaging use of detail in the Annunciation . PROVENANCE: It is challenging to localize the production of this French Book of Hours. Certain material aspects suggest Loire Valley or Central France (Tours, Bourges or Angers). However, since motifs and artists frequently … [Click Below for Full Description]

Northeastern France, Metz, c. 1490. ILLUMINATED LATIN PSALTER FROM THE MIDDLE AGES. Dimensions 133 x 95 mm., 190 folios on parchment, lacking four leaves, catchwords, written in brown ink, calendar in cursive bookhand and the remainder of the text in a gothic textualis bookhand, 1- to 2-line initials alternating in blue and red throughout, NINETEEN ILLUMINATED INITIALS, 9- to 3-line in raspberry red, blue or liquid gold, decorated with flowers, acanthus and strawberries. BINDING: sewn on four bands, but unbound (spine bare, lacking front and back covers). TEXT: Small-format illuminated Celestine Psalter likely from the Celestine monastery of Notre-Dame in Metz. Celestine manuscripts have not survived well, and this book thus provides rare insight into Celestine manuscript production and liturgy, a study that remains to be written. The Psalms were essential to the prayer life of all Christians, lay and religious, in the Middle Ages. PROVENANCE: Written and illuminated in Northeastern France very likely at the Celestine convent of Notre-Dame in Metz c. 1490 as indicated by the liturgical contents and the style of the decoration. The calendar and the Office of the Dead indicate that the manuscript was prepared for use in the Celestine Order. The manuscript was later in a private European Collection. CONDITION: ff. 104 and 118 excised vertically in half with loss of text, first and last leaves very stained and darkened, first quire detached from the uppermost sewing, some original defects of parchment in the outer margins, some stains and thumbing, otherwise in good condition. … [Click Below for Full Description]

1490. sehr selten, Wiegendruck, sehr guter Zustand, phantastische Karte. Sehr seltene historische Hozschnitt- Karte von Nordafrika nach Claudius Ptolemäus, Wiegendruck, Rom, 1478 oder 1490 A.D. HERAUSGEBER unbekannt, Karte nach Claudius Ptolemäus ( um 90 n.Chr.- um 168 n.Chr.) BESCHREIBUNG Wir bieten Ihnen hier eine seltene und sehr ansprechend kolorierte Holzschnitt-Karte nach Claudius Ptolemäus, herausgegeben in Rom um 1478 oder 1490. Ptolemäus beschrieb in seiner Geographike Hyphegesis die bekannte Welt im 2. Jhd. n. Chr. mit etwa 8000 Ordinationsangaben durch ein Koordinatensystem. Die Geographike Hyphegesis ist der erste bekannte Versuch in der Geschichte, Teile der als Kugel erkannten Erde in einer Kartenprojektion richtig abzuzeichnen. Auch wenn die Angaben auf den Karten heute z.T. als falsch angesehen werden, ist die hier angebotene Holzschnitt-Ansicht ein Spiegel des damals geltenden Weltbildes. Die Herausgeberschaft dieser Karte um 1478 oder 1490 zeugt ebenfalls davon, dass es sich hier um eine Ansicht des frühen modernen Buchdrucks handelt. Die Karte zeigt den östlichen Teil Nordafrikas mit dem Roten Meer, Ägypten mit dem Flusslauf des Nils, Libyen und das Mittelmeer bis hin zur Sinai-Halbinsel. Die Ansicht ist mit Koordinaten und entsprechenden Bezeichnungen versehen und bildet zudem die in der damaligen Zeit bekannten Flussläufe, Gebirgszüge, Inseln und Städte ab. GRÖSSE DER KARTE ca. B 55,2 cm x H 41,4 cm ZUSTAND Die Karte befindet sich in Anbetracht des Alters in einem sehr guten Zustand mit schönem Kolorit. Sehr gute Druck- und Bütten bzw.

WOODCUTS - INCUNABULAR). (SAMMELBAND). BERTHOLDUS
[Basel: Johann Amerbach not after 1490]; Cologne: Heinrich Quentel, 1505; [Basel: Johann Amerbach and Johann Petri. [Basel: Johann Amerbach not after 1490]; Cologne: Heinrich Quentel, 1505; [Basel: Johann Amerbach and Johann Petri, not after 1490]. Only Separate Edition of "Speculum Divini Amoris.". Housed in a near-contemporary binding and in remarkably fine condition throughout, this theological sammelband consists of one early 16th century and two incunabular works, one of the latter containing numerous woodcuts by a known engraver, pleasingly colored by a contemporary hand. Our engraver, the "Master of the Haintz Fool," so-named for his memorable illustrations in Sebastian Brant's "Das Narrenschiff" ["Ship of Fools"] (1494), was active in Basel around 1490 and contributed to several publications of this period (including, notably, the 1494 Basel edition of Christopher Columbus' "Epistola de insulis nuper inventis"). The woodcuts in our copy of Berthodus' "Horologium Devotionis" are attributed to his hand by the Bavarian State Library (BSB). The Horologium was a popular devotional work containing prayers for every hour of the day, each celebrating a moment from the life of Christ--in this case, with accompanying illustrations, from the Annunciation to the Last Judgment. Though most of the woodcuts here are only about 70 mm. tall, the specificity of location and number of figures packed into each scene is impressive. The coloring, no doubt by a contemporary hand, is vivid, favoring bright greens, golds, pinks, and oranges, with occasional splashes of blue and purple. Thi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Speyer, Peter Drach, 29. Juli. Einspaltiges, 52-zeiliges Original-Inkunabelblatt mit zwei klaren Holzschnitten ( etwa 11,7 x 8 cm) auf festem Papier. Blatt wenig fingerfleckig. Blattmaße: 21 x 29,7 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Der Autor des Werkes Bernardus de Braitenbach auch Breitenbach oder Breydenbach, besaß nach seinem Studium den Titel eines Dr. iur.. Geboren wurde er 1440 und starb am 5. Mai 1497 in Mainz. 1450 war er Canonicus und 1484 Domdekan in Mainz. Er unternahm vom 25. 4. 1483 bis Ende Januar 1484 eine Reise nach Palästina, auf die Halbinsel Sinai und nach Alexandria. Er begleitete dabei den Ritter Philipp Bicken und den jungen Grafen Johann von Solms, der auf der Rückreise starb. Eine Grabplatte von Breidenbach befindet sich heute im Mainzer Dom. Der Dominikaner Martin Roth gab seinem Reisebericht die endgültige stilistische Fassung und erweiterte ihn durch historische und theologische Beigaben. Die Ansichten der wichtigsten auf der Reise berührten Städte und Sehenswürdigkeiten, die Holzschnittansichten verschiedener Völker deren Alphabete und die Stadtansichten gehen auf die Originale des Künstlers Erhard Reuwich zurück, der Breidenbach auf seiner Pilgerfahrt begleitete. Peter Drach verwendet in dieser Ausgabe von 1490 die originalen Mainzer Holzschnitte von 1486. Die O-Holzschnitte wurden in der Inkunabelzeit zuletzt nach Spanien verkauft und erschienen 1498 in einer Ausgabe des Werkes in Zaragoza.

PIETRO D'ABANO.
Eighth printing, but the fifth separate edition. The first printed book on toxicology, treating of poisons and their antidotes. "The topics considered in its six main chapters are: the classification of poisons, how they act upon the body, how to guard against them, the effects and cures of a long list of particular poisons, and finally the problem of a panacea or bezoar against all poisons" (Thorndike). The poisons considered are wide ranging, and include arsenic and hemlock, narcotics, and animal poisons. The author makes reference to the loadstone as a poison if taken internally, and to two kinds of magnet (see Mottelay, p. 501, referring to this edition).Pietro d'Abano was born near Padua in 1250, and wrote De venenis in about 1316. First printed with his Conciliator at Mantua in 1472, the same year as Bagellardo's book on paediatrics, it was one of the first books on a specific medical speciality to be printed.Klebs 774.8. BMC IV, 91. For a full account of this book, and of Pietro d'Abano's life and other works, see Thorndike, II, pp. 874-947, and for the more bizarre aspects of his life (and death), see the Biographie Générale.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH TWO MINIATURES OF FEMALE SAINTS, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Southern Netherlands: , ca. 1490. Southern Netherlands, ca. 1490. This extremely well-preserved leaf features the images of St. Barbara and St. Margaret, two saints whose beautifully painted figures belie their memorably gruesome deaths. The historical existence of these saints is dubious, yet both were extremely popular in the Middle Ages and often appear together in Books of Hours. Barbara is said to have been shut away in a tower by her pagan father, during which time she became a Christian and was consequently condemned to death. Her father, meanwhile, died suddenly from a lightning bolt. For this reason, Barbara is known as the protector of those in danger of sudden death. Margaret of Antioch has one of the more unusual hagiographical stories. Because of her Christian beliefs, she was subjected to numerous tortures including, at one point, being swallowed by a dragon. She tore open the beast from within its stomach and survived (only to be beheaded later on by Diocletian). She is the patroness of childbirth, and, according to the "Oxford Dictionary of Saints," she promises an "unfading crown in heaven" to "those who invoke her on their deathbeds." In a society obsessed with death--sudden or otherwise--it is no wonder the two saints depicted here enjoyed such popularity and reverence in the Medieval imagination.. Visible leaf: 185 x 120 mm (7 3/8 x 4 3/4"); frame: 335 x 255 mm. (13 1/4 x 10"). Single column, 24 lines in a batarde book hand.

AN ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT LEAF ON VELLUM WITH A MINIATURE OF A GROUP OF SAINTS, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN AND FRENCH
Bruges, ca. 1490. This appealing and unusual leaf features a particularly lovely border as well as a miniature opening the Litany, a section of the Book of Hours not typically illustrated. The central figure can be identified as St. Stephen, the proto-martyr of the Christian Church, stoned to death for blasphemy after denouncing Jewish authorities. He wears a pink robe with an unusually bright yellow overlay, the instruments of his martyrdom in one hand and an open tome in the other. The two other easily identifiable saints are Catherine, with her wheel worn around her neck, and Lawrence, who holds the gridiron upon which he was tortured over hot coals. The full border here is particularly delightful and exuberant, featuring a veritable garden of flowers and fruit, with no fewer than 12 birds perched within it. The present painting is almost never seen in anything except a Book of Hours with a very large program of miniatures.. 104 x 99 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 7/8"). Verso with 14 lines in a gothic book hand. Several one-line initials and line fillers in painted gold on blue or magenta ground, one two-line initial in green on blue ground, WITH A HALF-PAGE MINIATURE SHOWING NUMEROUS HALOED SAINTS SURROUNDED BY A FULL BORDER featuring a plethora of different flowers, berries, greenery, numerous songbirds and owls, all ON A RICHLY PAINTED GOLD GROUND. One face rather chipped (with features affected), border with a hint of darkening, otherwise a charming, bright, and colorful leaf with only trivial defects.

AN ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT LEAF ON VELLUM WITH A MINIATURE OF THE AGONY IN THE GARDEN, FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN AND FRENCH
Bruges, ca. 1490. This leaf--full of somber content but delightful aesthetic qualities--features a particularly exuberant border with tangles of flowers, fruit, acanthus leaves, several birds, and even a small snail. The central miniature depicts the Agony in the Garden, a scene from the life of Christ said to have occurred just after the Last Supper. In the foreground sit three sleeping apostles--Peter, James, and John--and slightly higher in the picture plane is a kneeling Christ, praying before the image of a chalice. The colors chosen by the artist are quite vibrant and feature an unusually bright yellow for the robes of one of the apostles and lilac for the robes of Christ. This leaf has some additional interest on the verso, with another bright border in the outer margin, painted an intense pink and filled with more flowers and a small bird. These kinds of borders, approaching an illusionistic style, were a specialty of Flemish artists of this period. The present leaf, with its teeming, richly gold border, is a particularly fine example of the excellent work coming out of this region at the end of the 15th century.. 104 x 99 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 7/8").

BESCHREIBUNG Wir bieten Ihnen hier eine seltene und sehr ansprechend kolorierte Holzschnitt-Karte nach Claudius Ptolemäus, herausgegeben in Rom um 1478 oder 1490. Ptolemäus beschrieb in seiner Geographike Hyphegesis die bekannte Welt im 2. Jhd. n. Chr. mit etwa 8000 Ordinationsangaben durch ein Koordinatensystem. Die Geographike Hyphegesis ist der erste bekannte Versuch in der Geschichte, Teile der als Kugel erkannten Erde in einer Kartenprojektion richtig abzuzeichnen. Auch wenn die Angaben auf den Karten heute z.T. als falsch angesehen werden, ist die hier angebotene Holzschnitt-Ansicht ein Spiegel des damals geltenden Weltbildes. Die Herausgeberschaft dieser Karte um 1478 oder 1490 zeugt ebenfalls davon, dass es sich hier um eine Ansicht des frühen modernen Buchdrucks handelt. Die Karte zeigt den östlichen Teil Nordafrikas mit dem Roten Meer, Ägypten mit dem Flusslauf des Nils, Libyen und das Mittelmeer bis hin zur Sinai-Halbinsel. Die Ansicht ist mit Koordinaten und entsprechenden Bezeichnungen versehen und bildet zudem die in der damaligen Zeit bekannten Flussläufe, Gebirgszüge, Inseln und Städte ab. GRÖSSE DER KARTE ca.

Bernardinum de Cremona & Simonem de Luero(IS). 1490 1ed Nonius Marcellus Encyclopedia Incunable Greco-Roman Literature Accius An exceedingly rare, complete Incunable Nonius encyclopedia! Nonius Marcellus was a 5th-century Roman grammarian known for his only surviving work, a dictionary of Greco-Roman Latin literature ranging from Plautus to Apuleius, the tragedies of Accius and Pacuvius, works of Varro and Cato, and the satires of Lucilius. Nonius organized the work in such a manner that each entry includes a short definition of the words found in the plays followed by a quotation using the word, perhaps from the play itself. The title of the work has varied since its first printing, but the most commonly accepted title is ‘De proprietate latini sermonis’. The vocabulary terms that Nonius decided to feature include mythological terms, descriptions of weapons, food, theatre and literature terms, and much more. This 1490 first edition was published by Bernardino di Cuori, and for the first time, in conjunction with Simon of Lovere. (Proctor).

A fine, substantial edition of the voluminous letters of the fourth century scholar whose translation of the Bible from Hebrew into Latin became the received text of the Catholic Church.

That copy nevertheless realized even then a price of over $1,000. The Preface and Table are by Theodorus de Lellis; the latter, usually found in the second volume, is bound in this copy immediately after the Preface.

Initials painted in red, rubricated in red ink throughout. Late eighteenth-century quarter-vellum, covers backed with marbled paper. Smooth spine with title inked on paper label.

A contemporary hand has inked the title on the recto of the first leaf, 'Rosaeum sup[er] bibliam'; two blind impressions on the same leaf. Leather leaf-tabs on the outer margins of the first and last leaves, suggesting the copy was originally bound in a composite volume.Provenance: Wigan Free Public Library, United Kingdom (bookplate on the front pastedown, and embossed stamps on fols. a2 and f8; small label on the upper cover, with shelfmark 'Case 13:2'; the note on the recto of the front flyleaf 'Bought January 1908', and a signature now barely legible, probably in the hand of the librarian Henry Tennyson Folkhard (1850-1916); deaccessioned by 2002 at the latest.

Masters of the Dark Eyes »
Circa 1490. Feuillet sur peau de vélin (170 x 115 mm), enluminure extraite d’un livre d’Heures. Encadré d’un décor architectural gothique en camaïeu d’or et de pourpre, la scène représente l’arrestation du Christ, entouré d’une nombreuse foule de gens en armes à la mine rustaude et hilare. Plusieurs portant armures ou chapeaux de fer. St Pierre tranche l’oreille de Malchus tandis que Judas embrasse le Christ. En arrière plan se trouve une belle ville médiévale se détachant sur un ciel étoilé dans un dégradé d’or et de bleu. Cette peinture originale est l’œuvre d’un atelier portant le nom de « Masters of the Dark Eyes » dont l’œuvre principale est un missel détenu par le Walters Art Museum (MS 175). Ce groupe d’enlumineur actif dans le nord des Flandres travailla de la fin du XVe au début du XVIe siècle, pour une riche clientèle aristocratique, ainsi que pour des membres de la cour royale d’Angleterre. Son style se caractérise par une occupation foisonnante de l’espace, servi par des marges tout aussi exubérantes, faites de trompe l’œil ou de motifs architecturaux La palette sourde dont use l’artiste se charge d’un or liquide utilisé tant dans le ciel que sur le reflet des armures et le pli des drapés. L’expression des personnages est lui aussi surprenant, tous sourient et certaines des trognes de la soldatesque frôlent le comique. Cette foule entoure un très étrange couple Judas-Jésus, presque gémellaire, qui occupe le centre de l’image. L’ensemble donne un mouvement sinueux à la scène, que vient renforcer en premier plan une palissade tressée placée en oblique.

With an international clientele--among whom may be numbered royalty, giants of industry, and leaders of state--it is no wonder that interior designer and decorator of renown Alberto Pinto feels himself best suited to the shadows--albeit the shadows of the great. From this privileged position he subtly shapes lifestyles and, to a certain extent, the images of princes.

We are shown the magnificent interiors of apartments in New York, mansions in Paris, villas on the Riviera, country houses in England, and palaces in Cairo. We are also brought to a ranch in the deserts of New Mexico and to the ocean-side hills of Long Island's elegant Hamptons.

[PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius]
[Rome,: Petrus de Turre, 1490]. [Rome,: Petrus de Turre,, 1490].. Double-page engraved map, on two sheets joined, watermark of a T within a circle, and crossbow within a circle. The map shows Eastern Europe including parts of Ukraine, Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Iran. Although the area around the Crimea is depicted with a high level of detail, the area to the north and east of the Caucasus Mountains is underdeveloped. Map from the beautiful second Rome edition of Ptolemy's Geographia. “This handsome edition is a reprinting of the copper-plate maps of the 1478 Ptolemy [the first Rome edition by Conrad Sweynheym and Arnold Buckinck, whose] maps are considered the finest Ptolemaic ones produced up to the time that the great Mercator engraved his Ptolemy of 1578... It is believed that Sweynheym was the one who first thought of applying the very new art of copper-engraving to the printing of maps, and he might have taken a hand in the actual engraving of them himself” (World Encompassed). While the Bologna edition of 1477 was the first atlas to use copperplate maps, the present series is generally regarded as superior for its clear captions, accurate projections and overall design. Also, there are indications the Bologna edition was hurried through the press: the captions were not engraved but stamped into the plates. The early Italian Ptolemys, particularly the Rome editions, are "superb testimonials of Italian craftsmanship without the picturesque but unscientific monsters of the medieval maps or the addition of the adventitious decoration of later work, relying … [Click Below for Full Description]
