AILLY, PIERRE D', [PETRUS DE ALLIACO]
Strasbourg, [Georg Husner], 1490, 15 avril. ______ Format : In-folio. [284 x 198 mm] Collation : (200) ff. Reliure : Demi-basane brune, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure du XIXe.). ____ Seconde édition, la première a été publiée à Bruxelles vers 1483. C'est un commentaire sur les "Sentences" de Pierre Lombard, commentaire qui n'a toutefois que des rapports partiels avec l'ouvrage dont il a pour but de faciliter l'étude. C'est l'ouvrage le plus important de Pierre d'Ailly, représentant de la philosophie nominaliste; il y soumet les dogmes de la foi à une analyse logique. Pierre d'Ailly (Compiègne, 1351 - Avignon, 1420), Chancelier de l'Université de Paris en 1389, a été le maître de Jean de Gerson qui sera son disciple préféré. Il prit le parti de l'antipape d'Avignon Benoît XIII, qui le nomma Cardinal. Par la suite, il abandonna son protecteur lors du concile de Constance (1414-1418) au cours duquel il joue un rôle capital en favorisant la nomination de Martin V (qui rétablit l'unité de l'Église) et en obtenant la condamnation de Jean Hus. Il est l'auteur de très nombreux ouvrages dont une cosmographie, "Imago Mundi", qui a influencé Christophe Colomb dans son estimation de la largeur de l'océan Atlantique. Bel incunable, imprimé par " l'imprimeur du Jordanus de Quedlinburg de 1483", que l'on identifie aujourd'hui comme Georg Husner. Cet important imprimeur de Strasbourg, dont on ne sait presque rien, a publié à partir de 1481-1482 et on lui attribue plus de 80 éditions au XVe siècle. Exemplaire rubriqué en bleu et rouge, toutes les grandes initiales ont été tracées au pinceau dan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Statham, Nicholas; Pynson, Richard
1490 - First Edition of the First Printed Abridgement [Statham, Nicholas (d.1472)]. [Abridgment of Cases]. [Rouen: Guillaume Le Talleur, for Richard Pynson, c. 1490]. [ii], [190] ff. [380] pp. Collation: Pi2, A-Y8, Z6, [et]6. 11-line initial space, 50-line text and headline, side notes. Large Talleur device to verso of final text leaf. One-leaf manuscript index. Chancery folio (11" x 9"). Period-style blind-tooled calf with gilt ornaments, raised bands and gilt title to spine, endpapers renewed. Light toning to interior, occasional dampstaining and minor worming to margins, finger smudges and light soiling to some leaves. Contemporary marginalia throughout, affected by trimming in places, two-page index in fine contemporary hand, interesting later bookseller annotations to front and rear endleaves. An appealing copy. * First edition. The first printed abridgement of cases, it is generally assigned to Nicholas Statham, who was Lent reader at Lincoln's Inn. Its time period covers the reigns of Edward I and Henry VI. As Holdsworth notes, it contains "some long reports that are not to be found in the Year Books." Later editions were published in 1585 and 1679, and it was the standard abridgement until it was supplanted by Fitzherbert. Printed by the first printer in Rouen, this imprint is highly esteemed for the quality of its book design and typography, which mimics a contemporary court hand. Duff speculates that the 2-leaf index may have been printed later and added only to some copies. A study of OCLC and other library records supports his claim. We located 15 copies of this … [Click Below for Full Description]

Franciscus de Retza:
Basel, Lienhart Ysenhut, ca. 1490. Type 1, 2, 3.. Einspaltiges, 32-zeiliges O-Inkunabelblatt mit zwei Holzschnitten (6,2 x 7,4 cm), im Rand etwas fleckig, hälftiges Wasserzeichen: Stierkopf mit Standarte, Blattsignatur "ciii", Blattgröße: 14,3 x 21,4 cm.. Lienhart Ysenhut aus Heydeck erwarb 1468 das Bürgerrecht in Basel und kaufte 1471 ein Haus in der Weißen Gassen. Überwiegend war er als Formschneider, Briefdrucker, Heiligendrucker, Kartenmacher und Buchdrucker bis etwa 1510 tätig. Da Ysenhut in Anbetracht der wenigen erhaltenen Drucke über verhältnismässige viele Typen verfügte, drängt sich die Vermutung auf, dass manche Erzeugnisse seiner Presse ganz verloren gingen. Sein Druckersigne zeigt unter anderem einen Eisenhut (vgl. Geldner I, 123). Das Blatt ist online einsehbar: http://daten.digitale-sammlungen.de/~db/0002/bsb00027057/images/index.html?seite=41

Lyon, J. Trechsel, 17. VI. 1490.. (1), 159, (2) Bll. Mit roter Druckermarke auf Bl. 159 sowie zwei in braunen Tintenumrissen eingezeichneten Lombardinitialen. Halblederband des 18. Jahrhunderts mit goldgepr. rotem Rückenschildchen. 4to.. Einzige Inkunabelausgabe, besorgt von Jacobus de Maude und Johannes de Lalanda. "Believed to be a series of lectures given by the author at Montpellier on the 9th Book of the treatise dedicated by Rhasis to Almansor, the Prince of Chorosan" (Stillwell). Der Verfasser (geb. um 1329, gest. vor 1396) war Lehrer der Medizin in Montpellier sowie Leibarzt der Päpste Gregor XI. und Clemens VII. Hier vorliegend seine Vorlesungen über das neunte Buch des Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Zakariya ar-Razi (auch Rhazes; 850-923 oder 932), das die spezielle Pathologie unter Ausschluß der Fieberlehre behandelt und bis weit ins Mittelalter hinein als eines der beliebtesten Lehrbücher an den medizinischen Schulen und Fakultäten galt (vgl. Hirsch/H. I, 171). Rhazes gilt als neben Avicenna bedeutendster Mediziner des Mittelalters. Er beschäftigte sich außerdem mit Philosophie und Alchemie; nach seinem Biographen al-Gildaki wurde er geblendet, weil er sich weigerte, seine alchimistischen Geheimnisse preiszugeben. - Umfangreiche Marginalien und Anstreichungen in lateinischer Sprache, nicht später als 1540er Jahre, bei der Bindung im 18. Jahrhundert teils etwas angeschnitten. Stellenweise unbedeutend gebräunt (das erste und letzte Blatt außen stärker); einige kl. Papierdefekte fachmännisch ausgebessert.

ALEXANDER DE VILLA DEI
With Commentary by Gerard Zerbolt of Zutphen. Major initials (I: a4r; II: a5r; III-IV: a2v) in several colors on grounds of gilt (I), green (II), or bright red (III-IV). Remaining initials & paragraph marks alternately red & green. First page of quires b-i of Pars I the capitals with a yellow-orange wash. Headline & 42 lines, Gothic type. 144; 130; 52 leaves (complete). Chancery 4to (205 x 147 mm.), cont. blind-stamped calf over wooden boards (see below for a more detailed description), brass center & corner pieces, single brass fore-edge clasp & catches, stamped "M M." Strasbourg: M. Flach, 19 July 1490; 5 February 1490; & 1491. A really lovely and complete copy with all four parts, with a fine initial in gold and colors, in a handsome contemporary binding, very probably bound at the Benedictine monastery at Melk. "The 'glossa notablilis' of Gerard Zerbolt of Zutphen was the most published commentary in Germany on Alexander's Doctrinale, and it highlights the moral and religious intents which defined education for both Alexander and Gerard. The Doctrinale, written in hexameters about 1199, was a standard Latin grammar for advanced students which very nearly divorced the study of Latin from the study of classical (pagan) literature. For the purpose of protecting pupils from the purported moral dangers of such reading, Alexander wrote many of the examples of usage himself."-Ford, Christ, Plato, Hermes Trismegistus. The Dawn of Printing, 7. Binding: The copy is very probably a binding from the Benedictine monastery at Melk. It has the following inscription on the … [Click Below for Full Description]

France, probably Paris, ca, 1490. A Calendar Leaf with a Most Unusual Array ofApril Saints within Wonderfully Charming Borders. 337 x 267 mm (13 1/4 x 10 1/2").

One-line initials in burnished gold on blue and red backgrounds, two-line "KL" in blue with white tracery on a ground of burnished gold, BOTH SIDES WITH A STRIKING THREE-QUARTER BORDER of brushed gold decorated with swirling acanthus leaves, flowers, and fruit in multiple colors, and POPULATED WITH FIGURES OF SAINTS whose feast days are celebrated during the month, that on the verso showing Saint Leonard as an abbot, Saint Mark and his lion, and Saint Eutropius as a bishop, the recto with Saint Mary of Egypt (her long hair covering her nakedness), Saint Jerome with the lion, Saint Apollonia with the pliers that pulled out her teeth, and Saint Macarius with a book; RECTO ALSO WITH A LARGE ARCH-TOPPED MINIATURE framed in gold and divided into two panels by a golden column, the panel on the left WITH THE LABOR OF THE MONTH (two women gathering flowers and making daisy chains), AND that on the right showing TAURUS THE BULL, peacefully grazing in a meadow with wooded hills and a densely-spired city in the distance. One tiny wormhole barely touching one letter (no loss), paint faintly rubbed in a couple of spots, but A VERY FINE LEAF, clean and bright with vivid colors and shining gold.

ca. 1490, France - 146 x 95 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 3/4"). Single column, three lines on the recto, 16 lines on the verso, in a pleasing, careful bâtarde hand. Verso with two one-line initials in blue with red penwork, one pink and blue line filler, and two two-line initials in burnished gold on pink and blue grounds, recto with a three-line "D" in blue on a pink ground with white tracery, the center with four trefoils of burnished gold, the same side WITH A FULL FLORAL BORDER featuring blue and gold acanthus leaves, sprays of pink, blue, and red flowers with green and gold leaves, and numerous burnished gold berries, the border ENCLOSING AN ARCH-TOPPED MINIATURE OF PENTECOST (measuring approximately 72 x 58 mm.), the Virgin sitting on a low dais at the center of the scene, an open book in her lap, the Apostles clustered around her, two of them kneeling on the tile floor at her feet, another (perhaps Saint John) standing on the right, his hand extended, apparently after opening the shutter of an arched window in the back to admit the dove of the Holy Spirit, which hovers in front of a pink sun radiating gold beams, the miniature and text within a thin burnished gold frame. Much of the blue rubbed off the "D" and small patches of paint flaked off the green robes of three Apostles, otherwise a fine leaf, very clean and bright, with shining gold and ample margins. All eyes are on the Virgin in this Pentecost miniature, the scene most frequently used to begin the Hours of the Holy Spirit, one of the basic texts in the typical Books of Hours.

ca. 1490, France. 133 x 191 mm. (5 1/4 x 7 1/2"). Single column, three lines on the recto, 16 lines on the verso, in a pleasing, careful bâtarde hand. Rubrics in red, verso with one two-line initial in burnished gold on a pink and blue ground, recto with three-line "S" in the same style, recto also with A FULL FLORAL BORDER containing blue and gold acanthus leaves, sprays of red and blue flowers with green and gold leaves, hairline stems and burnished gold berries, this frame ENCLOSING AN ARCH-TOPPED MINIATURE OF ALL SAINTS showing at least a dozen figures standing on a white tile floor with blue and white sky above. A hint of pigment loss in one or two areas of blue, but IN ESPECIALLY FINE CONDITION, entirely fresh, clean, and bright. Although this is well composed and well painted, its figures are not identified in the usual way. Except for Saint Paul, who has his sword and book, none of the saints depicted here is accompanied by an attribute, so it is difficult to be certain who is being pictured. In the front row of saints, the artist seems to have given Paul an uncanonical full head of hair, while (presumably) Peter sports a monk's tonsure to Paul's left. The other three men near the front are all youthful, the bearded figure on the left in ample robe and cloak, the remaining two figures young and clean-shaven; the blond on the right is probably meant to be John the Divine. The cap on the youth in the middle is intriguing, being a tall red cone, so narrow that it seems likely to topple off, and the young blond has a bizarre red feather(?) protruding from his halo (or p … [Click Below for Full Description]

The cap on the youth in the middle is intriguing, being a tall red cone, so narrow that it seems likely to topple off, and the young blond has a bizarre red feather(?) protruding from his halo (or perhaps this is meant to be a flame of inspiration). This uncommonly-seen All Saints miniature appeared in the Hours of the Days of the Week, an infrequently included Office that would only appear in a very substantial Book of Hours containing many parts beyond the basics. When this image does appear, it will represent not only major, readily identifiable figures, but also various categories of saints: prophets and patriarchs, apostles and evangelists, martyrs, confessors (those who suffered but did not die for the faith), saints of the various religious orders, military saints, virgins, and other female saints.. 133 x 191 mm.

[Mainz: Jacob Meydenbach, 1490. Hardcover. 191 x 146 mm (7 1/2 x 5 3/4"). 88 leaves. Single column, 30 lines, gothic type. Second Printing. Modern boards covered with what appears to be part of an enormous late 17th or early 18th century Roman Missal. Initials painted in red throughout, paragraphs and capitals marked with red. Goff G-720; BMC I, 45. Third and fourth leaves abraded and with small repairs (some losses of paper, with damage touching a few letters, but no real loss of legibility), very neat early repair on blank verso of final leaf (scarcely noticeable on recto), leaves generally just a little darkened, otherwise quite an excellent copy, the text fresh and clean, and the binding unworn. This is an early edition (the second listed by Goff under "Baufet") of a manual of pastoral theology in dialogue form for simple priests, dealing with the seven Sacraments and how to administer them. According to the detailed bibliographical research of Amédée Teetaert, internal evidence indicates that the work was written between 1298 and 1323. Although its popularity prompted at least 13 incunabular editions, only seven are recorded in Goff (only one of these is noted in more than three locations), a fact that suggests the heavy use to which the book was normally subjected. The work is generally attributed to Guillermus Baufet (d. 1319), royal physician to Philippe de Valois and then Bishop of Paris from 1304. But since Teetaert has shown that none of the extant manuscripts of the work mentions the author as bishop of Paris, it seems at least as likely that a different Guillel … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small folio, 17th-cent. red morocco (small marginal repairs to 2nd & 3rd leaves), sides panelled in gilt, spine nicely gilt, green morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. Venice: Jacobus de Paganinis, 24 December 1490. Second edition (1st ed.: 1483) of the collected verse of Statius (ca. A.D. 45-96), the great Latin poet. Present here are the Thebaid, a mythological epic with commentary by Placidus Lactantius; the Achilleid, a fragment of an uncompleted epic with commentary by Franciscus Mataratius; and the Silvae, a collection of mostly occasional poems, of which the shortest, nineteen lines addressed by the insomniac poet to the god of sleep, is deservedly well-known. Domitius Calderinus has provided the commentary for Silvae. A fine copy from the Macclesfield library. Rather scarce. Some marginalia washed when rebound in the 17th century. ❧ Goff S-692. .

PTOLEMY, Claudius (90-168 A.D.)
[Rome: Petrus de Turre, 1490. Copper-engraved map, in very good condition. Sheet size: 16 1/2 x 21 inches. A highly important and elegant map from the second edition of the Rome Ptolemy, showing nearly the entire Balkan Peninusula, including northern Greece, as well as the Bosphorus Strait with the location of Istanbul named.This map is one of the earliest and most important printed maps of Northern Greece and a number of other Balkan states, being one of the trapezoidal tabulae, or regional maps of the Classical world, contained in the 1490 edition of Ptolemy's Cosmographia. The map embraces an area including Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, the northern Aegean, the Hellespont, the Sea of Marmara, Istanbul, and the western part of the Black Sea.The maps from the 1490 Rome Ptolemy were printed from the same plates as the first edition of 1478. It is believed by R.A. Skelton 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.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 Johann Guttenberg. After Mainz was sacked in 1462, Swenheym fled south to Italy and arrived at the Benedictine monastery of Subiaco, likely at the suggestion of the great humanist and cartographer Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa.

PTOLEMY, Claudius (90-168 A.D.)
[Rome: Petrus de Turre, 1490. Copper-engraved map, in very good condition apart from expert repairs to left and right lower corners. 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 France and Belgium, being one of the trapezoidal tabulae , or regional maps of the Classical world, contained in the 1490 edition of Ptolemy's Cosmographia .. The image embraces an areas extending from southern England down to the Mediterranean. France is shown traversed by major rivers, and curiously features an exaggerated mountain range linking the Pyrenees with the Alps. It is most fascinating as one of the last Classical-medieval maps of France and Belgium, before the advent of modern surveying techniques would dramatically modify the cartographic appearance of the region. 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.

[Rome: Petrus de Turre, 4 November 1490]. Copper-engraved map of the Balkans and the Adriatic, in very good condition apart from small repairs to the lower corners, an old repair to the lower blank area of the centre fold and some surface abrasions with a little loss to the 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 the region embracing the Balkans, Albania and the Adriatic, being one of the trapezoidal tabulae, or regional maps of the Classical world, contained in the 1490 Rome edition of Ptolemy's Cosmographia. The image embraces modern day Albania, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, and most of the Adriatic Sea, including part of the opposing Italian coastline. This map is also fascinating as one of the last representations of the region to be published before the advent of modern surveying techniques that would dramatically modify the depiction of the region. Geographically, the depiction is somewhat curious, as the coastlines are quite abstracted from their true form, and the region's actual complex topography is simplified into a neat line of mountains. As part of the 1490 'Rome Ptolemy', this map was printed from the same plates used for the first edition of 1478. R.A.
