PLUTARCH
Entirely complete incunable printing of Plutarch! "The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled." ― Plutarch 'Plutarch's Lives' or 'Parallel Lives' is one of the most important and comprehensive collection of biographies of famous Greek and Roman figures. Plutarch was not so much focused on providing a historical account of these famous individuals as much as he was seeking to write of the type of person they were and the life in which they lived. He focuses on Alexander the Great, Romulus and Remus, Demosthenes, Cicero, Brutus, Julius Caesar, and many other important figures. This exceedingly rare 1491, incunable edition of Plutarch was published by Giovanni Ragazzo in Venice and features two full-page decorative title pages. It is one of the earliest and most charming examples of decorative woodcut friezes in 15th-century printing. Ragazzo also includes an empty escutcheon which was intended to be filled with the armorial bearing of the owner, which in this case was filled. (Lippmann, 94) This fine edition features the commentary and translations of various authors, including 'Lives' that were attributed to Plutarch that were later discovered to be written by other authors. According to the ISTC, this work Includes lives · of Hannibal, Scipio Africanus, and Carolus Magnus by Donatus Acciaiolus; · of Agesilaus by Xenophon (attributed to Plutarch); · of Cicero by Leonardus Brunus Aretinus (attributed to Plutarch); · of Evagoras by Isocrates; · of T.

DANTE, ALIGHIERI.
riveduto da Fra Piero da Fighino dell'Ordine de'Minori. (In fine, verso f.315, colophon:) ''Et fine del comento di Christoforo Landino ... E impresso in Vinegia per Pietro Cremonese dito Veronese: adi. xviii. di novebrio.

Car. tondo, di corpo minore per il commento che incornicia il testo; gran numero di iniziali ornate su fondo nero. Illustrato da 97 silografie piccole e da 4 grandi a piena pagina (quella relativa al Purgatorio è ripetuta) all'inizio di ogni Cantica entro belle bordure con figure e animali. Precedono il testo un'Apologia e la Vita di Dante; lo seguono il Credo, i Dieci Comandamenti, i Sette Salmi penitenziali, il Pater Noster e l'Ave Maria ridotti in terze rime ed attribuiti a Dante. Benché sembri ormai chiarita la precedenza tra le due edizioni del 1491 – alcune varianti testuali fanno supporre che questa edizione, datata 3 Marzo, sia in realtà del 1492, iniziandosi l'anno veneziano il 1 Marzo – è considerata la prima edizione con le figure ad illustrare il Paradiso, e la prima con le revisioni di Pietro da Fighine al Commento del Landino. L'illustrazione dell'edizione di Brescia 1487 si fermava infatti al secondo canto del Paradiso.

Ignatius von Loyola (San Ignacio) / Sebastian Izquierdo
Ignatius von Loyola (* 31. Mai 1491 auf Schloss Loyola bei Azpeitia, Baskenland, Spanien 31. Juli 1556 in Rom) war der wichtigste Mitbegründer und Gestalter der später auch als Jesuitenorden bezeichneten Gesellschaft Jesu (lat.: Societas Jesu, SJ). Er wurde 1622 heiliggesprochen. Das vorliegende Buch ist in seiner Muttersprache, spanisch, veröffentlicht. Ein hübscher Pergamenteinband, wellig und leicht verfärbt und dennoch von der Optik her erstaunlich frisch. Das vordere Buchgelenk hat sich gelockert, dadurch die ersten 12 Seiten ebenfalls, ansonsten ist das Buch in einem altersgemäß sehr erfreulichen Zustand. Der Herausgeber des Buches, Sebastian Izquerdo (1601-1681), ebenfalls Jesuit, war Mathematiker, Logiker und Philosoph. Mit diesem kleinen Büchlein hat er sein Hauptwerk vorgelegt. Ein schönes, sammelwürdiges Bändchen.

Plate 84: Portrait of Cammilus Ursinus. Camillo Orsini (1491 - 1559), Italian nobleman. German text on verso not referring to the plate. Etching/engraging on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This original antique print originates from 'Der Aller durchleuchtigsten und grossmachtigen Kayser Konigen und Ertzhertzogen Fursten, wie auch Grafen, Herren von Adel'. Elaborate full-page full-length portrait plates within ornamental architectural frame, elaborate wood-engraved text borders. Editio princeps (in Latin) published in Innsbruck, 1601. Grandly illustrated Mannerist catalogue of the Heldenrustkammer of Archduke Ferdinand II of Tirol at Schloss Ambras in Innsbruck - the first collection of armor assembled on historical principles, in the first purpose-built museum north of the Alps. The Roman Catholic Archduke Ferdinand II of Tirol (1529 - 1595) was an avid collector of weaponry and armoury, that had originally belonged to all sorts of princes and potentates. He assigned his personal secretary Jacob Schrenck von Notzing to write a catalogue of the collection of armory (Heldenrustkammer) housed at Schloss Ambras near Innsbruck which finally was brought to print in 1601 only. The magnificent catalogue (known as Armamentarium heroicum) shows very rare examples of armours from the 15th and 16th centuries which originally belonged to illustrious persons such as the Emperor Maximilian I or Prince Maurice of Orange. In 1582 the Antwerp born Augsburg engraver Dominicus Custos started to engrave the 126 portraits after the drawings of Giovanni Battista Fontana.

GERSON JOHANNES - KEMPIS, THOMAS (DA).
1491. In 4to antico (cm 10 x15,5), occhietto, (segnatura AII - LIIII), numerazione romana, pp. II - LXXXVII, testo latino, piccoli capolettera incisi e talora illustrati, talora piccole lettere guida su spazio vuoto, leg. originale in perg. floscia con nome di uno dei possibili autori manoscritto in alto al dorso (Thoma a Kempis), fogli ai contropiatti e di guardia originali. Manca l'ultima carta bianca su cui forse era impresso il registro, peraltro completo (la segnatura AII è però preceduta dal solo foglio di occhietto, pur senza l'evidenza di asportazione meccanica). Esemplare con dorso parzialmente scucito, al frontespizio il disegno di uno stemma con alcune non chiare annotazioni, uniforme ingiallimento con sporadici aloncini, ottima impressione di stampa. Nell'insieme trattasi di esemplare ben conservato. Edizione di incerta datazione ma quasi certamente da porsi a cavallo fra Quattro e Cinquecento, se anche non strettamente incunabola o quattrocentina. L'edizione per Bertolamio di Zani da Porteso, Venezia, 1491, risulta in volgare e un'altra posteriore edizione è quella, sempre in volgare, di Caesare Arrivabene Vinitiano, Venezia, 1518). Celebre opera di ascetica medievale di dubbia attribuzione. La "Imitazione di Cristo" (De Imitatione Christi) è, dopo la Bibbia, il testo più diffuso di tutta la letteratura cristiana occidentale. Il testo nasce in latino e ne resta incerto l'autore, pur che per lungo tempo lo sia sia attribuito a Tommaso Da Kempis (da qui il fatto che la legatura rechi il suo nome e non quello del Gerson). I nomi a cui attribuire l'opera sono sosta … [Click Below for Full Description]

La primera hoja remarginada sin pérdida de texto, manchas en el margen del primer cuaderno; la útlima hoja con el faldón remarginado. Papel sólido y fuerte. Ejemplar rubricado.

Posiblemente, el libro de filosofía más importante e influyente de la tradición posclásica. En él, Boecio define la filosofía como amor a la sabiduría y establece las bases para alcanzarla: a él se debe también la distribución de las ciencias subsidiarias en dos grupos. Como Quadrivium (aritmética, astronomía, geometría y música) y como Trivium (gramática, retórica y lógica) han pasado a la historia de la educación, de la filosofía y a partir del texto de la Consolación de la filosofía se ha organizado y ha evolucionado el conocimiento occidental. Esta edición lleva el comentario atribuido a santo Tomás de Aquino e incluye el texto, también comentado, del Pseudo-Boecio sobre la enseñanza escolar. Libro muy raro: sólo 2 ejemplares censados en Bibliotecas de Holanda. La primera edición de Boecio se publicó en 1473.

SAINT BONAVENTURE (Giovanni di Fidanza), 1221-1274; PETRUS LOMBARDUS, 1100-1160
A rare example of a finely preserved Renaissance chained binding. Nuremberg : Anton Koberger, (after 2 March) 1491. Two parts in one volume, chancery folio (315 x 213 mm); contemporary chained binding from the Carmelite convent of Bamberg, blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards, centre and corner brass bosses, two clasps; entire chain (98 cm), including the eyelet, attached to head of lower board; manuscript paper labels on upper cover and head of spine (both worn), lacking one strap and catchplate; mid fifteenth-century Latin manuscript on paper in a German hand used as pastedowns; inscriptions on flyleaf and A2, "Carmeli Bambergensis" (the convent was secularised in 1803); armorial bookplate of Richard Caton of Liverpool; ff 218, 272; many leaves retaining deckle edges. The first edition of the Sententiae (Sentences) of Lombardus (Peter the Lombard) with the commentary of Saint Bonaventure, the Italian Franciscan theologian and philosopher; edited by Johannes Beckenhaub. The Sentences was regarded as one of the most important theological works of the High and Late Middle Ages: all masters of theology were required to produce a commentary on it. This volume was bound at the Carmelite convent in Bamberg. The researcher of early bookbindings, Ernst Kyriss, associated this "shop" (Kyriss, K52) with a named binder, Fr. Johannes de Meien, but since that name-stamp appears on only three of well over a hundred bindings from the shop, it is more likely the name of an owner of a few of the volumes, than that of the binder.

MAYR, (Johann) Simon [Giovanni Simone] 1763-1845
Paris: Carli [PNs 1110, 1351, 1491, 1493, 1494, 1767, (1779), 1780, 1811, 1819, 1820, 1829-1832, 1838], 1823. First Edition. Medea in Corinto, to a libretto by Felice Romani after Euripides, was first performed in Naples at the Teatro San Carlo on November 28, 1813. Mayr "was a leading figure in the development of opera seria in the last decade of the 18th century and the first two decades of the 19th... Medea was the first opera that [he] composed for Naples following a long string of successes in such north Italian centres as Venice and Milan... [It] was a huge success at its première. The leading roles were performed by important singers whose status in Naples continued throughout the next decade: Isabella Colbran (later Rossini's first wife) created the role of Medea, Andrea Nozzari played Jason and Manuel García played Aegeus. A revival, for which Mayr made minor changes, apparently tailoring parts to new singers, was mounted in summer 1814. The composer revised the score more thoroughly for a later revival at La Scala in 1823, at which Teresa Belloc-Giorgi sang the role of Medea, 'modernizing' it by providing true cabalettas for the arias and replacing the short detached phrases of his earlier melodies with more expansive lyrical periods. Medea enjoyed continued attention in the 1820s as a vehicle for Giuditta Pasta, who performed the opera in Paris (1823), London (from 1826) and Milan (1829), probably in one of the early Neapolitan versions." Scott L. Balthazar in Grove Music Online.. Folio. Dark brown morocco-backed marbled boards, spine in compartments gilt with … [Click Below for Full Description]
