PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius]
Petrus de Turre, 1490]., [Rome. 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 c … [Click Below for Full Description]

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...

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]

Some underlining, a few tiny marginal notes, well readable. Collection of 72 pamphlets and short essays, edited by Aquinas' biographer Antonio Pizamano (or Pizzamano, 1462-1512), a friend of Domenico Grimani and later bishop of Feltre. Attractive typography. Many detailed and lovingly drawn red lombards, partly with playful appendages. According to an inscription in red ink (dating from the early 16th century) this book was owned by the Dominican monastery of Wimpfen ('Wympina') in Baden-Württemberg, especially for the use of 'Michaeli Vhe', one of the most important monks of the monastery: Michael Vehe (1485-1539), an apologetic theologian, also the editor of the first Catholic hymn book with music. Wimpfen was Vehe's main residence in 1500-1506 and 1513-1515. Also with a 19th-century rubber stamp of the Grossherzoglich Hessische Hofbibliothek (Darmstadt). And with an inserted invoice (1929) of a Darmstadt antiquarian bookshop, with the name of typographer C.H. Kleukens (1880-1954), who was at that time professor at the Arts and Crafts School in Mainz. Goff T 258. In all, a clean and impressive incunable with a fine provenance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

SACROBOSCO, Johannes de
1490. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 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]

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.

Duns Scotus (Johannes)
text in double columns, rubricated for the first 22 leaves, mild damp-staining to top and fore-edges, ff. 62, folio (320 x 220 mm), [bound after:] Quaestiones in quattuor libros Sententiarum [Book I only]. [colophon:] Venice: Bernardinus Rizus, 17 July, 1490, contemporary Venetian blind tooled calf, rebacked, top and bottom compartments of spine renewed, as are patches of the upper cover and the corners, rubbed, endleaves are a pair of printed vellum bifolia with an early legal text with commentary, both works with extensive contemporary annotation. Though Quodlibeta and Quaestiones in quattuor libros Sententiarum are treated as separate bibliographical entities, they are often found together, though, not unusually, only one or two parts of Quaestiones (cf. the BL and Bodleian copies). Quodlibeta does not in fact have a proper colophon: the collation is given, but no printer or date.

Caesar, Gaius Julius;  [Ed. Hieronymus Bononius]. 
[Venice: Philippus Pincius (printer). Folio in 8s. An early work printed by Pencius (Philip Pinzi) who began publishing Galen's work in 1490 and then produced this important edition of Caesar's Gallic Wars. Raymond Marliano in the spirit of the Renaissance used this edition to identify the names of the Celtic and Gallic tribes and places which are noted in Caesar's writings. The results of this study were published as an Index urblum, fluminam & locorum to later issues. Note: using Pinzi's type another edition was printed at Venice for Benedetto Fontana in 1499. a-q8 r6 (*4) [d2 misbound after d4] (± q, q8, r, r6); 134 leaves. Bound in ¾ vellum over tan paper covered boards, hand lettered on spine. The ornamental woodcut initial and incipit on a2r are printed in red, all others are in black. Tipped onto front pastedown is an early German bookseller's catalog entry, citing Hain-Copinger, 4220; Proctor, 5304; British Museum Catalogue V, 496. Also see Goff, C24. (As noted in the collation, q, q8, r, and r6 are skillfully repaired at gutters. Early repair to half title. Some tiny worming of margins beginning at O2 through end with very minimal loss of a few letters only and a few small worm holes to upper margins only of a few leaves. The last page there is a marvelous printers mark of St. Anthony of Padua, with this legend, Defende Nos, Beate Pater Antoni. A very good copy.

de Lignamine, Philippus; Martinus Polonus; de Barberiis, Philippus
1490. [4],[ii], 81 ff. With index. A very scarce manuscript on paper in miniscule cursive in brown ink. It opens with 4 leaves of index, then two blanks which are covered with extensive notes in various hands from the 1500s and 1600s, then starts with fol.1 "Incipit Cronica summorum Pontificum imperatorumque..." Leaves are numbered but some of the numbers have been trimmed. It is nearly but not quite complete, breaking off at "nominat quolibet centesimo anno a Christi nativitate" (corresponding to line 11 on fol 127 of the printed 1474 de Lignamine Chronica). It is in good condition, rebound in old vellum with new spine label, new endpapers. Wide margined paper, the index has minor foxing and wear. The blank before the incipit has been repaired missing about 1/3 of the original page (it appears to have a Venetian genealogy written in Italian "francisco filio di Colantonio...nasci nel anno 1538...del mess di decembri..." etc.) The first leaf of the manuscript has notes written in Spanish referencing Braun's bibliography, there are occasional contemporary marginalia. Leaves 60-81 have damp staining at the bottom edge with old repairs to the bottom of the last few leaves, also old notes and some smeared ink at the bottom of the last leaf. The script is interesting, very small and neat with no corrections that I could see. No spaces for capitals and not as much paragraphing and separating as in the printed version. As well, dates are written out rather than being marked in Roman numerals.This is the famous Chronica of the Popes and Emperors often attributed to Riccobald … [Click Below for Full Description]

SENECA.
Bernardinus de Choris de Cremona et Simon de Luere, Venice. Folio. 8.5 x 12 inches. [3] + cxlvii + LXV leaves [= 215 pp.]. Separate pagination and register for the Epistles. Register at end. 62 line text except n4-5 which are 66 line. Capital spaces with guide letters. Final blank leaf not present. Text in Latin. Bound in later full calf, boards with blind stamped borders enclosing decorated panels; spine in compartments with raised bands with contrasting title label, gilt. All edges gilt. Outer side margins of first four leaves restored. Loss of lower corners of H6-9 with some words replaced in facsimile ink and paper restored. Occasional margin stains and some early attractive marginalia in Latin and some worming, largely confined to margins with no significant loss of text. Otherwise a fine crisp copy. A selection of the works of the Roman stoic philosopher, Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c.4 BC-AD 65). It includes a brief life of Seneca which precede the contents listed above; the Epistles to Saint Paul, beginning the second part, are generally considered to be spurious. A fine example of Venetian printing, this is a reprint of the Treviso edition of 1478, the earliest edition having appeared in Naples in 1475. These three versions were some of the first printed works to make available the ethical and moral philosophy of Seneca to a Renaissance audience. A fine copy of this rare incunable of 1490. Only 128 copies of this title exist in libraries world wide, of which nine are held in the UK. CLASSICS INCUNABLE PHILOSOPHY CLASSICS ANCIENT CLASSICS
