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.

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).

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.

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius]
[Rome,: Petrus de Turre, 1490]. [Rome,: Petrus de Turre,, 1490].. Double-page engraved map, on two sheets joined, no watermark in either sheet, trimmed to upper right margin with loss to title, several small wormholes to gutter skilfully repaired, manuscript annotations to verso. A beautiful map of the ancient Scythian lands in Central Asia, to the east of the Pamir Mountain range, and north of the Himalayas. From the 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 for their beauty solely on the de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Trapezoid projection of the Caspian Sea Double-page engraved map, on two sheets joined, with a watermark of an open 'T' within a circle in both sheets, large part of lower gutter skillfully repaired in facsimile, right hand margin with loss, skilfully repaired. This striking map on a trapezoid projection shows the Caspian Sea and bordering countries. Ptolemy's work was the first to draw a distinction between geography and chorography: between the mapping of countries and the mapping of regions within those countries. In the latter, the mapmaker should strive to recreate as closely as possible what the landscape actually looked like, explaining the perspective views of trees and mountains in this map. A 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]

Claudius Ptolemy ( arround 100- 160 a.C.) Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.

One of the earliest printed books on astronomy! filled with incredible woodcut astronomical engravings including clouds, zodiac, an armillary sphere, and Ptolemy's view of the Universe! Sacrobosco's 'Sphaera' was the most popular medieval textbooks on astronomy. It was widely read and was important for being the first book to describe the defects and issues with the Julian calendar. Sacrobosco was the first scholar, astronomical or otherwise, to use Arabic sources. He made astronomical knowledge available to the western world through the use of clear language. This helped propel its popularity - a popularity that would not cease until the late 17th-century. This work is extremely rare and lacks only 4 leaves. It contains the majority of the text intended by Sacrobosco. 'Sphaera' consists of four main sections: · 1 - definition of a sphere, elements of the world, and movements within the heavens (astmosphere) · 2 - giving examples of circles: heaven, celestial circles, equinoctial, horizons, zodiac, ecliptic, world meridians. · 3 - rising of the cosmos, signs of the ascension of the sky; explanations for global zones, equator and north and south poles · 4 - causes of the lunar and solar eclipses, movement of the sun and other planets [from DSB] This book is one of the earliest known examples of descriptions of eclipses and planetary activity, and it still holds value to modern day astronomers. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, "In spite of the numerous revisions which Sacrobo … [Click Below for Full Description]
