Hieronymus, Saint
Venice: Bernardinus Benalius, 14 July 1490. Part 1: 183 [of 184]; Part 2: 229 [of 230] leaves. [i iii]5 v4 a-p10 q-s8; v4 A10 B8 C-E10 F8 G12 GG2 H-Y10 Z9. Lacking first blank of Volume I and last blank of Volume II. 1 vols. Folio. 397 270 mm. The Letters of St. Jerome, 1490. 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. It has only appeared at auction in ABPC two times since 1975: once, disbound and lacking 10 leaves; and, in 1982, in a later leather binding with defective spine, "dampstained & wormed" with one leaf "scorched with loss of text". 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. Goff H172; HC 8560*; BMC V 372; BSB-Ink H-251; GW 12432; ISTC No.: ih00172000. Early (18th-c.?) vellum, marbled endpapers, edges stained red, covers with hand-drawn rules and central arabesque devices in ink. Upper joint split, but cords sound, covers soiled; first leaf soiled, first and last several leaves of both volumes with marginal waterstaining. A good, sturdy copy, lacking only the two blank leaves. Bookplate.

PTOLEMY, Claudius (90-168 A.D.)
[Rome: Petrus de Turre, 4 November 1490]. Copper-engraved map, in very good condition apart from a repair to the lower right corner, light old dampstain to centre fold. 16 1/8 x 22 inches. A highly important and elegant map from the second edition of the 'Rome Ptolemy' This map is one of the earliest and most important printed maps of Egypt and Libya ever produced, being one of the trapezoidal tabulae, or regional maps of the Classical world, contained in the 1490 Rome edition of Ptolemy's Cosmographia. This map depicts the Alexandrian Ptolemy's home region, taking in all of Egypt and the Nile Valley north from Meroë to the Delta on the Mediterranean. The image also takes in Cyrenia, now the Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountains) region of Libya. In between the finely engraved mountain ranges, the Nile Valley features the numerous historically important cities and sites of Roman Egypt. From the Nile Delta the coastline features a great deal of toponymic detail, while to the south, the Sahara is shown to be an enigmatic expanse of mountains and isolated oases. As part of the 1490 'Rome Ptolemy', this map was printed from the same plates used for the first edition of 1478. R.A. Skelton stated that the 1490 edition was issued 'in response to the geographical curiosity aroused by the Portuguese entry into the Indian Ocean', with Bartholemew Dias's rounding of the Cape of Good Hope in 1488 (Skelton, p.X), and appropriately Christopher Columbus heavily annotated a copy of the 1478 edition. The 'Rome Ptolemy' maps occupy an extremely important p … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMY, Claudius (90-168 A.D.)
[Rome: Petrus de Turre, 1490. Copper-engraved map, in very good condition apart from a small marginal repair to the lower blank margin and a small rust-hole in the image area, rebacked centerfold, overall soiling. A highly important and elegant map from the second edition of the 'Rome Ptolemy' This map is one of the earliest and most important printed maps of the region embracing the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark, being one of the trapezoidal tabulae , or regional maps of the Classical world, contained in the 1490 Rome edition of Ptolemy's Cosmographia .. This map is also fascinating as one of the last representations of the region to be published before triangulated surveys dramatically modified the depiction of the region in the sixteenth-century. The image takes in the vast area of 'Magna Germania', the heart of Europe, running north of the Alps and extending up into Scandinavia. As part of the 1490 'Rome Ptolemy', this map was printed from the same plates used for the first edition of 1478. R.A. Skelton stated that the 1490 edition was issued 'in response to the geographical curiosity aroused by the Portuguese entry into the Indian Ocean', with Bartholemew Diaz's rounding of the Cape of Good Hope in 1488 (Skelton, p.X), and appropriately Christopher Columbus heavily annotated a copy of the 1478 edition. The 'Rome Ptolemy' maps occupy an extremely important place in the history of early printing, and the story of their genesis is most fascinating. It begins with Conrad Swenheym, who is widely thought to have been present at the birth of printing while an apprentice of … [Click Below for Full Description]

For a discussion of the beautiful full-page woodcut of the Crucifixion, see Rivoli, Missels, p. 61, where a German influence is noted (cfSander). The co … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMY, Claudius (90-168 A.D.)
[Rome: Petrus de Turre, 4 November 1490]. Copper-engraved map, in very good condition apart from a repair to the lower right corner, light old dampstain to centre fold, centre fold expertly re-backed. 16 1/8 x 22 inches. A highly important and elegant map from the second edition of the 'Rome Ptolemy' This map is one of the earliest and most important printed maps of Crimea and the Caucasus ever produced, being one of the trapezoidal tabulae, or regional maps of the Classical world, contained in the 1490 Rome edition of Ptolemy's Cosmographia. The map embraces the Crimean peninsula, the eastern Black Sea and all of the Caucasus Mountains over into the Caspian Sea. It includes parts of modern Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Iran. The depiction of the region around the Crimea is geographically well assured, highly detailed with rivers and typonomic details, while the regions on the other side of the Caucasus Mountains are shown to have been something more of a mystery to the Classical mind. Finely engraved ribbons of mountain ranges flow through the centre of the image, marking the boundary between the European and Asian continents. As part of the 1490 'Rome Ptolemy', this map was printed from the same plates used for the first edition of 1478. R.A. Skelton stated that the 1490 edition was issued 'in response to the geographical curiosity aroused by the Portuguese entry into the Indian Ocean', with Bartholemew Diaz's rounding of the Cape of Good Hope in 1488 (Skelton, p.X), and, appropriately, Christopher Columbus heavi … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMY, Claudius
[Rome: Petrus de Turre, 4 November 1490]. Engraved map. Good condition apart from repairs to the centre fold and at the lower margin. 16 1/8 x 22 inches. An important early map of north western Africa, from an edition of Ptolemy's 'Cosmographia' containing some of the finest Ptolemaic plates ever produced This important map is from the 1490 Rome edition of Ptolemy's Cosmographia:. It shows the majority of Morocco and Algeria, with Spain in outline to the north. All the maps are printed from the same plates as the Rome edition of 1478. 'The copper plates engraved at Rome ... [were] much superior in clarity and craftsmanship to those of the 1477 Bologna edition ... Many consider the Rome plates to be the finest Ptolemaic plates produced until Gerard Mercator engraved his classical world atlas in 1578' (Shirley p.2). Skelton echoes Shirley's sentiments: 'The superior craftsmanship of the engraved maps in the Rome edition, by comparison with those of the [1477] Bologna edition, is conspicuous and arresting. The cleanliness and precision with which the geographical details are drawn; the skill with which the elements of the map are arranged according to their significance, and the sensitive use of the burin in working the plates - these qualities ... seem to point to the hand of and experienced master, perhaps from North Italy' (Claudius Ptolomaeus Cosmographia Rome 1478, Amsterdam, 1966, p.VIII). A number of authorities have suggested an engraver from either Venice or Ferrara. In any event, the prints from these fine copper plates rank as som … [Click Below for Full Description]
