Ptolemaeus.
[Rome?, Petrus de Turre?, 1490? (engraved Rome, ca. 1478)].. Engraved map of the Arabian peninsula (topographic image 255 x 460 mm) printed, as usual, on two joined 2o leaves (together 395 x 560 mm). Mounted on paper board, in a modern gilt frame (505 x 670 mm).. Second map of the Arabian peninsula ever published, in its first state. It was originally engraved as part of the extraordinary 1478 Rome edition of Ptolemy's Geographia, and the map was preceded by only the one published in the less detailed and crudely engraved Bologna edition published in 1477. Among the towns shown are Medina (Lathrippa) and the archaeological sites of Zubarah (Catara), and Al-Dur (Domana). The association of Macoraba with Mecca is disputed. The map was reprinted unchanged in 1490 and 1507. These two Ptolemaeus atlases contain the earliest copperplate maps ever produced and the original printer's careful experiments clearly paid off. "Many consider the Rome plates to be the finest Ptolemaic plates produced until Gerard Mercator engraved his classical world atlas of 1578" (Shirley). - Some faint stains along the edges of the paper and in the gutter, small restoration in gutter of the lower margin and a very minor tear near the upper left corner. In good condition. - Al Ankary 3. Nordenskiöld 201.21. Tibbetts 4. For the atlas: Shirley, Mapping of the world 4.

Augsburg: Johann Schopsser, 1490. Versehung von Leib, Seele, Ehre und Gut. 4to. 166, [10]ff., including final blank. Xylographic title, hand-colored woodcut on verso, hand-colored woodcut initial. Augsburg: Johann Schobsser, 1490. 190 x 138 mm. Contemporary blind-stamped calf over wooden boards, probably bound in Augsburg, two lettered brass fore-edge catches (lacking clasps), traces of paper label on upper cover, rebacked, restored; sewing loose in signatures a and b. Marginal soiling, repaired tear in a5 just touching text, marginal tear to o8 touching 3 letters, occasional small light marginal dampstains, marginal worming in last few leaves, marginal restoration to final blank leaf. Very good copy. 18th-century shelfmark on title, modern bookplates of ?CH? and Niels Hansen Christensen. Second edition of a popular vernacular manual of physical and spiritual health, sometimes attributed to Heinrich von Lauffenberg (though this may result from confusion with Lauffenberg?s similarly titled Versehung des Leibs, printed in Augsburg by Ratdolt in 1491). The work is a compendium that owes much to the earliest practical medical manual in German, the late 13th-century Arzneibuch of Ortolf von Baierland, surgeon of Würzburg. The text includes extensive herbal and medicinal remedies, instructions for bloodletting, the fundamentals of astrology, advice on the signs of impending death, and a guide to the spiritual preparation for death. The woodcut on the verso of the title shows a man on his deathbed flanked by weeping kin while a priest places a lighted candle in his hands and an an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Quran
Spanish 1490 - A LARGE AND IMPORTANT QUR’AN;- 46 PAGES, IN MAGHRIBI SCRIPT ON PAPER, NORTH AFRICA OR ANDALUSIA, LATE 15TH. CENTURY;- Arabic manuscript on Paper 7 and 9 lines to the page written in large Maghribi Script with diacritics and vowel points in Gold, red, blue and green, illuminated devices to the margins and between verses. This is a fine example of Islamic manuscript production from the Muslim west, It was written on paper, which in medieval Islamic Spain was unusual, vellum still being the preferred material for the writing of the Qur'an; the script is a fine example of large scale Maghribi (the marking of the hamzas indicating a probable Andalusian origin) and the spacious arrangement of the script on the page allowed for the clear marking of the diacritics and vocalisation in colours and gold and the elaborate illuminated devices between verses. A particularly unusual aspect of the verse divisions is the use of abjad letters to mark the exact verse count of every verse. The illumination of the devices marking the verse divisions is of very high quality and the size of the devices allows the use of a relatively complex design. Due to the fine quality of the manuscript it can be assumed that it was made for a high ranking official or member of a Princely Family from one of the major cities of Southern Spain. It has generally been attributed to 15th century Granada, although the script and illumination bear close resemblance to a manuscript of the Shihab al-Akbar, dated 568/ 1172-3, written at Valencia. The large, rounded script was in general use from the … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Added finely engraved title by M. Merian (with a port. of Münster), woodcut port. of the author on verso of title, one folding plate (between pp. 1040-41), & 1490 woodcuts in the text (of which 26 are double-page maps & 72 are double-page plans & views). Printed title in red & black. 14 p.l. (incl. the engraved title, the 7th leaf a blank), 1752 pp. Large thick folio, cont. blindstamped panelled pigskin over thick wooden boards (some inevitable browning due to the quality of the paper), eight decorated brass corner-pieces & a central boss on each cover, orig. catches & two clasps (the leather of the lower renewed). Basel: Henricpetri, 1628. A very impressive and broad-margined copy in its original binding with all the metal "hardware" of the best, largest, and final edition (1st ed.: 1544) of the famous Cosmographia by Münster (1489-1552), the great cartographer, mathematician, and cosmographer. This was the first detailed scientific and popular description of the world in German and played an important role in the revival of geography in Europe. It was one of the most successful texts of the 16th century and enjoyed numerous translations and editions. Our edition has 400 more woodcuts than the 1614 edition and an additional 900 woodcuts when compared to the first edition. It contains two world maps, maps of Europe, England, Spain, France, Germany, the Rhineland, Swabia and Bavaria, Franconia, Silesia, Bohemia, Hungary, Transylvania, Dalmatia and Croatia, Italy, Scandinavia, Greece, Asia, Asia Minor, the Holy Land, Sumatra, Africa, and America.

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.

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

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.

Remaining initials & paragraph marks alternately red & green. First page of quires b-i of Pars I the capitals with a yellow-orange wash.

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.

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.

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.

GUILLELMUS PARISIENSIS [or] GUILLERMUS BAUFET, EPISCOPUS PARISIENSIS
[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]

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. .
