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. Encuadernación del siglo xvii en media piel roja sobre cartón. Copinger 1111. Goff B-794. BMC ix 67. GW 4552. Campbell 313. CIBN B-583. No en Hain. No en IGI. No en BAV. No en IBE. 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.

(Venezia, Bernardino Benali e Matteo Capocasa da Parma, 3 Marzo 1491. in-folio (mm 310x218), ff. 302, di cui i f. 12-301 sono numerati da II a CCLXXXXI (primo e decimo ff. n.n. da altro esemplare, anticamente rimarginati lungo il lato bianco inferiore), legatura in pergamena antica a capitelli passanti. 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.

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. Institutional libraries would fasten their most valua … [Click Below for Full Description]

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."

Initialen des Textes schwarzgrundiert Initialspatien (des Kommentars) nicht ausgefüllt. Die Bl. 11 und 12 sind vermutlich übernommen aus den venezianischen Capasca-Ausgaben von 1491 (erneut 1493), kenntlich durch den wiederholten Titel "Danthe aleghieri fiorentino" recto Bl. 11 und die Abbildung Gottvaters (mit Buch) im Tympanon des ganzseitigen Holzschnitts verso Bl. 11, was bei einigen anderen Exemplaren im Übrigen fehlt. Derselbe 'Gottvater im Tympanon' wurde von Capasca mehrfach verwendet wie z. B. in "Fiore de virtù" (1493 vgl. auch Pollard und Hind beide mit Abb.).

First leaf with an attractive three-sided woodcut border, very numerous woodcut diagrams in the margins, & woodcut initials throughout. First leaf with two lines printed in red. Roman types. 51 lines. 136 leaves (without the first & last leaves which are blank). Folio (315 x 212 mm.), fine morocco by Lortic, triple gilt fillet round sides with the arms of the Prince d'Essling in gilt in center of each cover, spine gilt in six compartments with "VM" in five of the compartments, a.e.g. Vicenza: L. Achates de Basilea & G. de Papia, 20 June (?) 1491. A fine copy of the second edition which is much rarer than the first edition of 1482; this copy, which is finely bound by Lortic, comes from the famous library of the Prince d'Essling, one of the greatest collectors in 19th-century France. The Vicenza edition is a page-for-page reprint of Ratdolt's, omitting the dedication to the doge of Venice. The border to the first page is of an entirely different nature from Ratdolt's. Instead of floral interlacements there are semi-grotesque animals, birds, and cupids. This text "has served, for almost 2,000 years, as the standard text of the core of basic mathematics…it has exercised an influence upon the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible."-D.S.B., IV, p. 437. A very good copy, lightly washed, with a distinguished provenance. The title-page has a short tear (50 mm.) carefully repaired, not touching the text. ? Goff E-114. Klebs 383.2. Thomas-Stanford 2.

Caviceus, Jacobus.
1491. 4to. (6) ff. (incl. final blank). Roman type 10:80R, 37-38 lines. With a woodcut initial. Later wrappers. All edges red. First edition of this fictitious homage to King Maximilian, offered by six cities of classical antiquity. Probably written in Pordenone, where Caviceo had lived for several years and was earned his doctor of laws in 1489 from the hands of Emperor Frederick III. The work begins with a reference to the eviction of the Hungarians from Austria: "The six cities are Babylon, Troy, Byzantion, Athens, Carthago, and Jerusalem. They all pay homage to Maximilian and bey for his protection [...] Interspersed with numerous references to contemporary events" (cf. Apponyi). The theologian J. Caviceus (1443-1511) studierd at Bologna and entered the services of Piermaria Rossi, Lord of Berceto, and his son Guido, Capitano of the Republic of Venice. After 1492 he served as vicar general to the dioceses of Rimini, Ferrara, Florence, and Siena. - Printer attribution follows GW (contested by BMC and Indice generale VI). Recto of first leaf has old border rules in black ink; an English note on the author (c. 1880) is mounted to the flyleaf. - Very rare; only the second edition is listed in German auction records of the last decades (Hartung Munich, 98 [2000], lot 103, EUR 4346).

DODOENS (DODONAEUS), Rembert and Carolus CLUSIUS.
Nissen, BBI 518; Stafleu & Cowan 1491; Wellcome I, 1812. Second Dutch edition of Dodoens's last, most important and most extensively illustrated work, with Clusius's extensive appendix of American and East Indian plants that adds nearly 100 woodcuts. Besides the usual herbs and medicinal plants, the book describes and illustrates seaweed, coral, sponge, mushrooms, grains, beans, peppers, thistles, fruit trees, cactus, nut, date, olive and other trees, coconut, pineapple, cacao, tobacco and papyrus. It also made an important contribution to systematic botany by defining the parts of plants in general.The Stirpium represents Dodoen's best and last great work: a monumental botanical study divided into 6 large sections, each containing 5 books, with the plants classified in 26 groups. This system was far superior to all his earlier classifications. Joost van Ravelinghen, Christophel Plantin's grandson, first published the present translation in 1608, adding extra information in a smaller type at the end of each chapter. These additions give information on the qualities of the plant as well as new information or descriptions of new plants taken from the work of other authors, including Carolus Clusius and Mathias de Lobel. At the end Van Ravelinghen added a whole new part on exotic plants taken from the works of Clusius, Garcia da Orta, Nic. Monardès, Chr. Acosta and others. The present edition includes the same woodcuts as the first Dutch edition, with some additions for the parts by Clusius. Slightly browned, with some minor spots throughout and the margins slightly thumbed. B … [Click Below for Full Description]

Der Schatzbehalter der wahren Reichtümer des Heils des aus Winningen in Württemberg stammenden Franziskanermönchs Stephan Fridolin gehört mit den insgesamt 96 ganzseitigen Holzschnitten des Nürnberger Malers Michael Wolgemut und dessen Stiefsohns Wilhelm Pleydenwurff zu den absoluten Höhepunkten des Nürnberger Holzschnitts im 15. Jahrhundert. "Mit einer ganz bedeutsamen Wirkung auf die allgemeine Entwicklung der vervielfältigten Künste . Dass der Schatzbehalter noch vor der Reise Dürers nach dem Süden entstanden ist und nicht ohne Einfluss auf den Lehrgang des Künstlers geblieben sein kann, verdient noch besonders angemerkt zu werden" (Karl Schottenloher). Verlegt wurde das Buch anonym, aber die Autorschaft Fridolins ist durch einen zeitgenössischen Eintrag in einem in der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek gehüteten Exemplar des Klosters Regdorf in Bayern gesichert.

Very rare Paris school edition of this very successful text, the &ldquo,Art of writing letters&rdquo, by Jacobo Publicio. Written around 1567, it was first published in Venice in 1482 as part of Publicio's Artis oratoriae epitome, which also included his famous Ars memorativa, the first manual on mnemotechnics ever published (first separate edition: Toulouse, 1475 ca.). Jacobus' rhetorical treatise became very well known in the last two decades of the 15th century. The three parts were often reprinted either together or separately. The first separate edition of the Ars conficiendi epistolas was issued in Deventer in 1488. The present is probably the fifth edition after three Deventer editions and one published in Leipzig. An earlier edition, issued under the title Epistolarum institutiones. Litterarum indices et inscriptions, ascribed by BMC to Toulouse, Henricus Turner, 1476 ca., is apparently an earlier draft of the &ldquo,Ars epistolandi&rdquo, and the &ldquo,Suprascriptiones epistolarum&rdquo, (cf.
