Unknown painter
1490. RECTO: FULL PAGE PORTRAIT ON VELLUM OF THE MADONNA AND CHILD and an unknown saint together with the Donor who is a Cistercian nun. Mary is enthroned with the Child seated on her lap on a green tasselled cushion and holding a modestly placed cross. Above her, two angels with multi-coloured wings draw aside the curtains of a green tapestry canopy. Standing to Mary's left is a saint - note the faint nimbus - one that the donor would have been particularly devoted to, and kneeling before her is the Cistercian nun, seeking blessings from Mary and the saint. Mary gazes compassionately at the nun, blessing her, while the saint also raises his hand in blessing. The artist has depicted the kneeling Donor with her simple habit and pious expression as a devout servant of Mary and the Church, the image that she wished to convey through the ages. VERSO: Blank. SOURCE: Probably France. DATE: c.1490 CONDITION: This richly coloured and detailed miniature is in fine condition. The vellum miniature has been mounted on to a backing paper, marginal sections of which are lost and discoloured, but within the window of the mat the image is virtually blemish free. The leaf is unconditionally guaranteed genuine. SIZE: Leaf: approx. 175x135 mm. Image: approx.155x105 mm. NOTES: A Donor is a person who donates a book - and often commissions it as well - to an ecclesiastical establishment. Portraits of donors are found throughout the Middle Ages, but became increasingly popular from the 13C on. Such portraits collapsed time and space, enabling people to imagine themselves occupying the same space … [Click Below for Full Description]

DAVID KIMHI (KIMCHI, QIMHI).
[266] of [1 blank], [287] pp. + [4] pp. in manuscript.Rare Hebrew incunable, the second (1490) edition of the classic treatise on the roots of Hebrew words, forming a grammar and a biblical dictionary of word roots, by David Kimhi (ca. 1160-ca. 1235) a rabbi and biblical commentator from Provence, whose biblical commentaries even influenced the King James English translation of the Bible. The present second edition is the first edited by Samuel ben Meir Latif. The book of roots is an important contribution to the literature about the Hebrew language both as a practical reference work for biblical scribes, well organised and clearly written, and as a study of etymology, drawing comparisons with other languages. It was first published at Rome ca. 1469/72, but the ISTC records only 11 copies of the first edition and nearly all are incomplete. The book heavily influenced both Jewish and Christian scholars, including Johannes Reuchlin in his Rudimenta linguae Hebraicae (1506), Santes Paginus, Sebastian Münster, Elias Levita (who wrote commentaries for the Giustiniani and Bomberg editions of 1546) and his protégé Giles of Viterbo who translated it into Latin before 1517 (though not for publication).With a typed label mentioning Schocken on the inside of the wrapper, from the collection of Salman Schocken (Sotheby, 6 December 1993). Lacking alef 1-2 (11-2, supplied in manuscript at an early date), and bet 1 and the final quire yod het 1-8 (21 & 181-8, supplied in lithographic facsimile).

[VERVOORT, Frans].
[88] ll.Rare enlarged third edition of a well-illustrated work by the often overlooked Franciscan mystic author Frans Vervoort (ca. 1490-1555), "one of the greatest religious lyrists" (Schmitz) and generally said to be "the greatest follower of Ruysbroeck in the 16th century". In 16 chapters he describes how the human soul is threatened from all sides by the enemy's net ("vyants net") and he urges the reader to be careful.Vervoort's works circulated in manuscript until at the end of his life he was "discovered" by Henricus Helstanus, his Franciscan superior who sent some of Vervoort's manuscripts to his friend the Archbishop of Trier (this letter is added at the end of our edition). Vervoort did not want his works to be published under his own name, therefore they appeared under the names of the editors - here Jan Verbrugghen, who also lived at Malines. Before his death, three of Vervoort's works were published, including the present one, first published in 1552 at Antwerp by Hans van Liesveld with 14 woodcut illustrations by the gifted Flemish Renaissance artist Pieter van der Borcht (ca. 1530-1608). Simon Cock published the second edition at Antwerp in 1556, adding the letter by Helstanus and with a revised text. Both of these editions are extremely rare. The present third edition follows the text of the second but adds 8 additional woodcuts by Pieter van den Borcht.Title-page with restored margins, just touching the woodcut border, leaf a8 with a small hole, affecting text on recto and woodcut on verso, final leaf restored in the foot margin, browned and with some occasi … [Click Below for Full Description]

[MANLIO, Giovanni Giacomo (Johannes Jacobus MANLIUS or MANLIIS)].
77, [2], [1 blank] ll.Seventh known copy of an early edition of an important treatise on pharmacology and medical botany, by Giovanni Giacomo Manlio di Bosco (fl. 1490-post 1500). It is a commentary on ancient Arabic and Greek pharmacological works, especially the Arabic treatises of Yuhanna Ibn Masawayh (ca. 777-857), a Nestorian Christian physician from Assyria who taught at the academy in Gundeshapur, Iran, and was personal physician to four caliphs. It gives instructions for preparing numerous medicines, indicating the quantities of the ingredients (simples, each derived from a single plant) and describing each ingredient. The present edition includes Manlio's preliminary note addressed to Bernardinus Niger.The title-page indicates that the book also contains Lumen apothecariorum, a work by Quirico de Augustis de Tortona of Milan (fl. 1486-1497). But it is not present here or in any of the other seven copies we have traced. With contemporary and later marginal manuscript notes. With the text area of B2.7 somewhat browned, an occasional small and unobtrusive stain, and a few small worm holes in the last few leaves, but generally in very good condition. Some of the manuscript notes have been shaved. The binding is slightly dirty and the boards slightly bowed, but the binding is still good.l Durling 2938; ICCU 29621 (same copy); KVK & WorldCat (5 copies); Emiliano Sordano, Il Luminare maius di Manlio del Bosco, thesis, University of Torino, 2010, p. 41; USTC 840112 (2 copies); cf.

HESE (HESSE), Johannes Witte de.
[19], [1 blank] ll.Rare third Deventer edition, in the original Latin, of a popular account of the fictitious travels supposedly made by one Johannes Witte de Hese, a cleric from the diocese of Utrecht in the Netherlands, often compared to the classic account of the travels of Sir John Mandeville. It was first published at Cologne ca. 1490, but Jacobus de Breda published the second edition at Deventer in 1497. Witte de Hese's travels start in Jerusalem in 1389 (in this edition updated to 1489) when he departs for Egypt, observing many curiosities, including monstrous flying fish in the Red Sea, a hermit feeding on manna, and a unicorn detoxifying a stream poisoned by desert serpents. From Damietta, Egypt, he boards a ship to Ethiopia ("interior India"), meanwhile observing pygmies fighting against storks, one-eyed cannibals and a sea of sand, and he is briefly taken captive. Six weeks later he and his entourage arrive in Prester John's capital of Edissa, and marvel at his enormous palace. During their stay they visit the city of Hulna, with the Church of Saint Thomas, which is a four-day walk from Edissa. Before returning to Jerusalem, Witte de Hese spends more than a year roaming the remotest parts of the seas, during which he visits Purgatory and even catches a glimpse of Eden.The main text is followed by a treatise on the ten nations of Christianity, a letter from the putative sultan of Babylon "Joannes" -- here addressed to Pope Pius II (1458-1464) but actually written at least a century earlier --, a brief papal response to that letter, the popular 12th-century letter … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gothic types. 2 full-page woodcuts and 51 woodcuts in text (each circa 75-62 mm). Rubricated in red. Blue morocco gilt. Lower blank margin of a2 and d6 replaced. Provenance: Fritz Kreisler (his sale Sotheby's Parke Bernet, 27 January 1927, lot 141); purchased from Maggs Bros., 1966. EXTREMELY RARE EDITION CONTAINING A REMARKABLE SERIES OF WOODCUTS. The third edition of this curious text in Latin and German, which compares the relative improbabilities of mythical events and natural phenomena with that of the Immaculate Conception, illustrated with a striking series of early Basel woodcuts. The half dozen known productions from this rare Basel press are all illustrated and Ysenhut may have been a wood-engraver as much as a printer. The two full-page cuts of the Virgin were copied from the first Strasbourg edition of a decade earlier (Armin 132). According to Fairfax Murray the first leaf of this book was blank when first issued, and it was only after some copies were distributed that it was thought necessary to add a title-page (supplied in facsimile here and bound at end).

Synthen taught in the domus pauperum during Erasmus's school years in Deventer and probably knew him well. This commentary, mostly the work of Synthen, enjoyed a certain authority in educational circles and was reprinted at least 10 times before 1500 in Deventer alone. The text together with the commentary was first published by Richart Pafraet in 1477-1479.The present copy, recorded in the literature as Lansberg-Velen-Gemenbibl., Balve, Germany, lacks the first four leaves of the first quire (fols. a1-4; the inner lower corner of a4 is still present), including the title-page with woodcut and the prologue.

Northwestern France, Normandy (Bayeux), c. 1480-1490. BOOK DESCRIPTION: BOOK OF HOURS BELONGING TO THE CHIEF MISTRESS OF FRANCE IN THE 15TH CENTURY. In Latin and French, illuminated manuscript on parchment, Northwestern France, Normandy (Bayeux), c. 1480-1490. Dimensions 186 x 132 mm, 81 folios, lacking one leaf, written in brown ink in gothic textualis bookhand on 20 lines, 1- to 2-line champie initials in burnished gold, nine 4- to 5-line initials on burnished gold grounds, FOUR FULL-PAGE ARCHED MINIATURES WITH FULL BORDERS. BINDING: splendid sixteenth-century Parisian binding, gold-tooled à la fanfare by the royal "atelier du doreur à la première palmette" of Henri III of France; modern fitted case. ILLUSTRATION: The engaging miniatures are by an artist who painted another Book of Hours localizable in Bayeux. PROVENANCE: The localizable feasts in the calendar are characteristic of Normandy, especially of Bayeux. The original patron was probably a woman, or perhaps a couple, due to the use of both masculine and feminine prayers. Later, the manuscript belonged to Françoise de Foix, Countess of Châteaubriant and mistress of King François I (c. 1495-1537), who composed her personal prayer to the Virgin Mary on ff. 77v-78. The initials beginning each verse spell out "Honneste femme Françoise La Cointesse," suggesting that it was written by Françoise de Foix herself. In the second half of the 16th century, the manuscript belonged to Marguerite Fresneau; her name "Marguerite / Fresneau" stamped on the front and back covers of binding. The book was later owned by her granddaught … [Click Below for Full Description]

BINDING: refined 18th-century(?) paneled gold-tooled brown morocco, 19th-century clasps and catches. ILLUSTRATION: Illuminated by the Master of the Chronique scandaleuse, a masterful artist who often received prestigious commissions from King Charles VIII and other members of the royal family. The successful illuminations in this very tiny manuscript demonstrates the Master of the Chronique scandaleuse's utmost mastery of color at a microscopic scale. Characteristic of his palette is a preference for strong vibrant colors, as well as the abundant use of liquid gold for the depiction of drapery and scenic elements. PROVENANCE: Written and illuminated in Paris before 1494 for Charles VIII, King of France (r. 1483-1498). Unquestionable evidence of the personal use of the present manuscript by Charles VIII is provided by the ex-libris and motto "plus. quautre." followed by his name "charles. viiie." (f. 41v).

FREYDANCK
[Leipzig: Konrad Kachelofen], 1490. Gilt-ruled crushed brown morocco with a blind inner frame and gilt corner fleurons (Bedford, c. 1870), gilt spine and title, all edges gilt. FIRST EDITION, A CORNERSTONE OF MEDIEVAL GERMAN LITERATURE. Originally composed about 1230 and reworked in the 1380s for school use, these Latin and German proverbs, moral maxims and satiric observations are sharp, short and skilled. They are the world of Everyman - farmer and knight, laity and clergy - and guide his conduct with prudence the primary virtue. In homely, pithy language, they wield popular imagery and traditional wisdom against the ecclesiastic and secular hierarchies' lust for power and money, while acknowledging the unalterable fate of the humble.  This is the only antiquarian printing of the 14th-century text. The market quickly turned to Sebastian Brant's humanist version (1508, etc.), then to the explicitly Protestant revision (1538, etc.). I have not traced another example of this edition for sale in the past fifty years. In good condition, offsetting from an oval leather bookplate. ¶Montandon, Bibliographie des traités de savoir-vivre I: 283; Moll, Sprichwörterbibliographie 3655; Gratet-Duplessis, Bibliographie parémiologique 533; Bernstein, Catalogue des livres parémiologiques 1189 "of the greatest rarity" (tr.); ISTC if00310000; Goff F-310.

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.

[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.

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]

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.

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.

(Straßburg, Johann Prüss, nach dem 6. April 1490).

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. Papierqualität, B … [Click Below for Full Description]
