CASSIODORUS, MAGNUS AURELIUS
Basel: Johann Amerbach, 1491. FIRST PRINTING. 298 x 210 mm (11 3/4 x 8 1/4"). [340] leaves. Pleasing contemporary wooden boards, later sympathetic sheepskin spine (diapered with enclosed floral stamps on the portions extending onto the boards), raised bands, brass catches and clasps (perhaps original), later leather thongs, 15th century ink titling on fore edge. Goff C-236; BMC III, 753. Two very minor wormholes in front wooden board, leather backstrip a bit worn, but the binding very solid and certainly without any significant defect. Final gathering vaguely soft, darkened, and creased, a single tiny round wormhole through first 40 leaves of the text (10 leaves near the middle of the volume with short elongated wormhole at very bottom of margin, well away from text), two inconsequential closed marginal tears, but A NEARLY FINE COPY INTERNALLY, the leaves rather bright, consistently clean, and unusually fresh. This is a very well-preserved copy with ample margins of the only surviving patristic commentary on the complete Psalter, a work with both a theological and a pedagogic purpose. According to scholar James O'Donnell, "Cassiodorus is visibly interested not only in the spiritual benefits to be derived from an enlightened reading of the Psalms, but also in the didactic benefits. He has made of the Psalter a textbook in the liberal arts." After a long and successful political career, Cassiodorus (ca. 487-ca. 584) founded a monastery and spent the final 30 years of his long life in the cloister, where he endeavored to improve the standard of monastic education, in part by e … [Click Below for Full Description]

CALANDRI, Filippo.
Extremely rare second edition of the first illustrated Italian arithmetic, containing the first printed example of the modern method of long division, and the first printed use of the word 'zero'. Calandri's work was used to teach elementary mathematical techniques necessary for business, both for craftsmen and merchants. This edition follows the first of 1491, with the same illustrations (although there are some reversals and rearrangements) but a different printer. A richly illustrated manuscript of the work is preserved in the Biblioteca Riccardiana in Florence. <br/><br/> One of the earliest printed works to teach commercial arithmetic, it gives the leading rules for integers and for lire, soldi and denari. Calandri is the first to give long division in the modern form, known to the Italian writers by the name 'a danda'. "Indeed Calandri gives only the 'a danda' method, omitting the galley forms, and is therefore fully a century ahead of his time" (Smith). <br/><br/> On the page facing the preface there appears a majestic, seated teacher in a classroom with students. The scene is labelled, 'Pythagoras, Inventor of Arithmetic'" The book then begins with a salutation that embedded the title of the work in a supposed network of patronage: "A small work of Filippo Calandri on Arithmetic, [dedicated] to Giuliano di Lorenzo de' Medici." The preface goes on to claim pre-eminence in commerce for Florence and to claim that the author went to a great deal of trouble to ensure that the book was printed in 'the Florentine style.' The exact meaning of <i>lo stile fiorentino</i> is u … [Click Below for Full Description]

KETHAM, Joannes de
Title in red and black with 4 large woodcut instruments (2 are repeated in text). Large double-page woodcut wound-man, smaller woodcut of a zodiac man, and 2 large text woodcuts; last leaf with printer's device. Old German paste-boards; some interior soiling, still a beautiful copy. Early edition of this rare surgical treatise, a cornerstone in the history of medicine. The initial sections on surgical practices and treatments are nearly identical with the corresponding portion of the author's Fasciculus medicine (Venice, 1491), a collection of writings by medical men for the use of practicing physician. Among the many medical concepts here are passages on injuries, goiters, cancer, phlebotomy, and recipes for various medications. This work is of major importance for containing the first detailed anatomical illustrations ever printed.& & Little is known of Johannes de Ketham, a name probably corrupted by the printers from Johannes von Kirchheim. In spite of extended research by Sudhoff and others, his identity remains unknown. This edition is extremely scarce.

AUGUSTINUS (PSEUDO).
Florence, (Laurentius de Morgianis and Johann Petri of Mainz), 10 November 1491. With a nearly full-page woodcut of St. Augustinus on the title, 1 large woodcut initial. Printed Lombard initials. Roman type. 28 lines. 44 unn. leaves. 4to (205 x 140 mm). Brown morocco with gold-lettered title on spine, richly gilt. In a slipcase. Florence, (Laurentius de Morgianis and Johann Petri of Mainz), 10 November 1491. First illustrated edition in Italian of a very rare Florentine incunabulum. The only European copies outside Italy are kept in the holdings of the BL London (1 copy) and in the BN Paris (2 copies). The BN copies have no table like this present one, and their 2nd copy otherwise is imperfect). The large title-woodcut shows Saint Augustine writing in his study, surrounded by his accoutrements, his mitre and staff. The illustration is an exceptional example of the outline style of woodcuts of Florentine imprints in the 1490s. This treatise was attributed in the Middle Ages to Saint Augustine. The book has the form of an "inner dialogue" in which questions are posed, discussions take place and answers are provided, leading to self-knowledge. The 4-page text at the end by Jacobus Mediolanensis (fl. 13th c.) describes the "ten grades by which man can reach perfection" and is a summary of his "Stimulus amoris" (the goad or prick of love), one of the most important Franciscan tracts of that time, frequently attributed to Saint Bonaventura. - A final bifolium containing the table may have been issued in a few copies only. First leaf with small hole and light soiling, occasional … [Click Below for Full Description]
