Ptolemy/ Fries Claudius/ Laurent ( Lorenz) ( 1490 - 1531 ) Lyon
Artist: Ptolemy/ Fries Claudius/ Laurent ( Lorenz) ( - 1531 ) Lyon; issued in: Strassburg; date: ca 1525, 1490. - technic: Woodcut; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 31 x 45; - description : Map shows as trapezoid projection the Caspian sea with Russia, Turmenistan, Kasachstan, Usbekistan and Hindukusch; - vita of the artist: Lorenz (Laurent) Fries was born in Alsace in 1490 or thereabouts, describing himself on one occasion as from Colmar, one of the towns of the region. He studied medicine at university, or rather at universities, as he seems to have had a peripatetic education, apparently spending time at the universities of Pavia, Piacenza, Montpellier and Vienna.Having successfully completed his education, Fries established himself as a physician, at a succession of places in the Alsace region, with a short spell in Switzerland, before settling in Strasbourg, in about 1519.By this time, he had established a reputation as a writer on medical topics, with several publications already to his credit. Indeed, it was thus that Fries met the Strasbourg printer and publisher Johann Grüninger, an associate of the St. Die group of scholars formed by, among others, Walter Lud, Martin Ringmann and Martin Waldseemuller. Gruninger was responsible for printing several of the maps prepared by Waldseemuller, and for supervising the cutting of the maps for the 1513 edition of Ptolemy, edited by the group.This meeting was to introduce a important digression into Fries' life, and for the next five years, from about 1520 to about 1525, he worked in some cap … [Click Below for Full Description]

Artist: Ptolemy/ Petrus de Turre Claudius; issued in: Rome; date: ca. - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 30 x 55; - description: Rare trapezoind projection map of the Caspian Sean with the bordering countries. - vita of the artist: Petrus de Turre puchased Conrad Sweynheyms plates in 1490 to reissue the maps based on Claudius Ptolemy notes. 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.

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.

Catholic Church. Liturgy & Ritual. Psalter.
1490. From a large, magnificent Benedictine Psalter, this is the start of Psalm 1, "Beatus vir . . ." ("Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the chair of pestilence But his will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he shall meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf shall not fall off: and all [whatsoever he shall do shall prosper]. . . . "). The text appears here in sepia ink in a large Renaissance rotunda hand, set forth to the point of our bracket above, illuminated and featuring a large miniature of King David filling the center of a large initial B. Along the bottom margin in three medallions are Saints Mark, Benedict (center bottom), and Laurence; the right margin has two additional medallion portraits of unidentified female figures. The margins are garnished with gilt and bright-colored flowers, among which hides the small image of a deer; "As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God"?

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
Good with no dust jacket. c1490. Vellum. [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 Chron … [Click Below for Full Description]

SENECA.
Bernardinus de Choris de Cremona et Simon de Luere, Venice, 1490. 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.

ALLIACO PIETRO (PIERRE D'AILLY).
Augusta, Erhard Ratdolt, gennaio 1490. In - 4°; 56 cc.; alcuni schemi incisi nel testo. Grande e bella figura incisa in legno a piena pagina al verso della prima carta: un astrologo di fronte al teologo indica il cielo stellato. Iniziali grandi e piccole su fondo nero e grande marca tipografica stampata in rosso e nero all'ultima carta. Legatura del '900 in tutto marocchino, titolo e filetti in oro ai piatti e al dorso, tagli dorati. Piccolo ex libris stampigliato al contropiatto (Lauria, Paris). Buon esemplare a grandi margini, leggera brunitura a poche carte. Prima edizione di questo famoso trattato astrologico introdotto dalla grande e bella xilografia a piena pagina raffigurante un teologo e un astronomo che discutono sulle questioni celesti. Pierre d'Ailly (1350 - 1420) fu professore di teologia all'università di Parigi, commentatore di Aristotele e uno dei promotori del Concilio di Costanza, dove favorì l'elezione di Martino V, riconosciuto unico Papa, e dove ottenne la condanna a morte di Jan Hus come eretico. Noto per i suoi studi di geografia e soprattutto di astrologia e cosmografia, il d'Ailly influenzò nel secolo successivo, tra gli altri, Cristoforo Colombo. "Ailly was a good popularizer of Ptolemaic astronomy, chiefly in the form of a commentary on the Sphaera mundi of Sacrobosco; he prepared for the council (of Constance) a memoir on the reform of the calendar, the necessity of which became more and more obvious as the divergence between the Julian year and the seasonal one increased.

"Contains the first references in print to Portugal's maritime discoveries" - Rogers, p.6. The oration includes a summary of explorations in Africa, deeds against the Turks, and a pronouncement of Portugal's imminent discoveries in the East: "Lastly, to all these things may be added the by no means uncertain hope of exploring the Barbarian Gulf, where kingdoms and nations of Asiatics, barely known among us and then only by the most meager of information, practice very devoutly the most holy faith of the Saviour.

JACOBUS DE VORAGINE [Giacomo or Jacopo da Varazze] [c1230-c1298].
[Colophon on h8r:] Cologne: Johann Koelhoff, the Elder, [22 July] 1490. First Edition to include the martyrology of Usuardus. The Archbishop of Genoa's popular collection of legendary lives of the saints was one of the most widely read books of the Middle Ages. Over a thousand manuscripts of the text have survived, and in the incunabula period the Legenda Aurea was printed in over 100 editions, not only in Latin but in every major European language. It was one of the first books printed by Caxton in the English language (1483). The appended famous martyrology of Usuardus, a Benedictine monk of the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Carolingian scholar, served as the basis of the Roman martyrology (1583), the official martyrology of the Catholic Church. The last two lines of the colophon is dated 'in vigilia sanctissimorum trium Regum' (here erased), interpreted by A.Labarre as 22 July, correcting previous interpretations of 5 January (cfGutenberg-Jahrbuch 1975, pp. 77-80). Goff cites only the Library of Congress copy in America, without the Usuardus; Worldcat adds a second copy held by Columbia University. BMC I 229. Copinger 6465 (Jacobus de Voragine only).

Rome: Petrus de Turre, 1490. Engraved map (392 x 522 top/538 bottom mm). Early coloring, retouched in places. Backed with paper, repairing a 7-in high section varying from ¼ to 1½ inches in width, with skillful pen facsimile; title abraded at top. From the second Rome edition. '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). Conrad Swenheym's finely engraved map of Persia is the earliest obtainable map of the region, preceded only by a virtually unobtainable map published in Bologna in 1477. Shirley, World 4: "Many consider the Rome plates to be the finest Ptolemaic plates produced until Gerard Mercator engraved his classical world atlas of 1578". Despite the condition issues, the map presents very well, with handsome early coloring.

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.
