LUGDUNI, EX OFFCINA IUNTARUM, 1492.

Seconda edizione, la prima nel 1591, di questo trattato contenente un attacco alla arti superstiziose, alle parole magiche e all'interpretazione dei sogni. Cfr. Cultura Barocca, "Pereyra fu un filosofo e scrittore spagnolo nato a Ruzafa (Valencia) nel 1535 e scomparso a Roma il 6 marzo del 1610 (in effetti, scorrettamente, alcuni biografi o studiosi usano le forme Perera o Pérez ed altri ancora l'esito Pereiro). Egli iniziò la sua carriera di studente universitario a Valenza e quindi, espletati i suoi doveri, nel 1552 entrò a far parte della Compagnia di Gesù. Recatosi in Italia molto tempo trascorse in Sicilia e quindi a Roma ove approfondì i suoi studi filosofici divenendo alla fine docente di Sacra Scrittura presso il Collegio Romano . Profondo teologo e discreto letterato fu soprattutto un grande fisico ed un eccelso filosofo che, sfruttando le sue incredibili energie fisiche e mentali, a lungo lottò contro il principio d'autorità introdotto dalla tradizione scolastica un po' in tutte le Università. Egli sempre si propose di valorizzare le qualità della ragione ed i risultati d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ambrosius. Opera. 2 Teile (von 3) in einem Band (Anfang von Teil 1; Teil 3 komplett, aber irrig gebunden). Basler Inkunabel mit beinahe blattgroßem Titelholzschnitt, den Kirchenlehrer Ambrosius (um 339 - 397) zeigend, wie er in seiner Studierstube an einem Pult steht und schreibt. – GW II, 1599; Hain I, 896; Lonchamp I,74; Heckethorn, S. 39 (mit Angaben über die Verwendung der Typen). - Für die Angaben zum Drucker: Heckethorn, S. 27 ff; Geldner I, 118f.; Voulliéme S. 25; Dt.

Die Wasserzeichenkartei Piccard im Hauptstaatsarchiv Stuttgart. - Die hier vorliegenden Schriften des Ambrosius, der Bischof von Mailand war, stammen aus der dreiteiligen und zugleich ersten Gesamtausgabe seiner Werke. Vom ersten Teil liegt nur der Anfang vor. Neben dem Titelholzschnitt, dem Inhaltsverzeichnis des Gesamtwerkes, einer Beigabe von Johannes de Lapide und der Auflistung der genauen Kapiteleinteilung des ersten Teiles sind dies Ambrosius "Schriften über die Pflichten". Ihre Bedeutung ist groß, da Ambrosius mit den `Libri de officiis` eine "zusammenfassende Sonderdarstellung der christlichen Ethik" versuchte, "die bis Thomas von Aquin der einzige Versuch blieb" (Buchberger I, 430). Der dritte Teil liegt vollständig - wenn auch in irriger Reihenfolge - vor. Hier leitet ein Zwischentitel Ambrosius moralisch-asketische Schriften über die Jungfräulichkeit ein (Kapitel XI - XVIII). Es folgt der eigentliche Anfang des dritten Teils mit Inhaltsverzeichnis aller Kapitel. Folgerichtig schließt sich das Kapitel I - das Buch der Briefe - an.

PETRARCA, FRANCISCUS. - [THE FIRST MAN OF LETTERS]
Venice, Johannes & Gregorius de Gregoriis de Forlivio, 13. September, 1492. 4to. Very nice contemporary full vellum binding with lovely later (ab. 1750) gilding to spine and boards. Spine with gilt title-label and gilt lines and boards with triple gilt line-borders and a gilt dotted line-frame with gilt cornerpieces. Upper margin shaved, sometimes cutting into the headline. Otherwise a very nice and fine copy. Clean and fresh with only a bit of light occassinal brownspotting or dampstaining. (6, -index), 117, (1, - printer's device) ff. With full-page woodcut printer's device on final leaf. ¶ Very rare first edition of the most important and influential of Petrarca's publications, his seminal "Epistolae Familiares", which constitutes one of the most significant works of the Renaissance - the first documentation of "modern man". The present publication constitutes the only separately published incunable edition of Petrarch's letters. Later on, in all 350 letters to his friends were published; the present work is made up of the first 102 and the publication thus marks the beginning of one of the most important enterprises of humanism, namely the publication of the letters that reveal to us the man Petrarca. Petrarca is the first modern man whose life can be traced accurately (due to the publication of his letters) and he is considered the embodiment of the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. The many outer and inner conflicts that we witness in the person Petrarca is a testament to the times in which he lived - a time in which the Middle Ages evolved into the … [Click Below for Full Description]

INCUNABULA. (HAEDUS, PETRUS) (=PIERRE/ PIETRO CAVRETTO).
(Tarvisius, per Gerardum (de Lisa) de Flandria, 1492, 13th of October). 4to. Very nice later (about 1600) full sheepskinbdg. w. gilt line-frames and gilt corner-ornamentations on boards. Back gilt. Corners and edges a bit worn (mostly due to wormholing). Wormholes to paper on inside of boards as well as to some leaves, though only marginally and not affecting text. Waterstaining throughout. All in all a well-preserved copy. ff. (6), I-XCII + XCV (lacking five leaves: Colophon-leaf and ff. XCIII, XCIV, XCVI, XCVII), in all 99 of 104 leaves. ¶ Rare first edition of the Italian moralist's main work, because of which the great humanist is remembered today. The full title of the work is "Anterotica sive amoris generibus", though "anterotica" is only mentioned on verso of the first leaf, whereas the work opens with the shorter title on the first leaf. This is the only edition to have appeared during the author's lifetime, the only incunable-edition, and the only edition to have existed untill 1608, when the work was printed for the second time in a rather defective and much less beatuful edition under a different title ("De Contemnendis Amoribus"). <br>The author, Petrus Haedus or Cavretto, was born in Pordenone, Italy around 1424 and died around 1501. The mystical work is written as a conversation between two of his friends, a priest and a poet, who hold opposing viws on the topic - love. It is a great representation of renaissance thought, and a valuable contribution to the study of this period. The typescript is a beautiful small roman one, which is very distinctive.<br>The pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venetiis: per magistrum Bernardinum Ricium de Nouaria: anno a natiuita te uni [1492, 15 February]. 1492 FORESTI CHRONICLE Incunabula City View Woodcuts Illustrated ROME Venice An incredible COMPLETE illustrated 1492 edition of the Foresti Chonicle! At the end of the 15th-century, universal chronicles were popular amongst readers and authors alike. Because of their popularity, authors such as Jacob Philippus Foresti created their own editions and supplements to these chronicles. ‘Supplementum Chronicarum’ was such a work, intended to be a supplement to the more regular universal chronicle work. However, parting from the norm, Foresti discusses mythological creatures and characters as true, historical figures. He also notes the events of the Trojan War and makes record of Giovanni Carignano’s lost work on the Popes and their visits with Ethiopians. This example is filled with 45 woodcut illustrations and initials throughout. Item number: #3337 Price: $25,000 PHILIPPUS, Jacobus [Foresti] Opus preclarum Supplementum chronicarum vulgo appellatum.

MANDEVILLE, Sir John.
Florence Lorenzo Morgiani & Johannes Petri: 7 June, 1492. 79 (of 80) leaves, lacking leaf a1 with woodcut; text printed in 2 columns, 39 lines, with good margins; woodcut capitals throughout, initial C in red; occasional minor paper repairs to margins, short marginal tear to g8; occasional very minor soiling/staining (mainly marginal). Small 4to (207 x 138mm). 19th-century leather-backed maroon boards, spine gilt. Rare 15th-century Italian edition of the world's first best-selling travel book, published in the year of Columbus' discovery of the New World. Although largely fictitious, the journeys are based upon travellers' tales extant in the fourteenth century and as such are of considerable interest. Purchas considered Sir John Mandeville to be akin to Marco Polo in terms of importance 'the greatest Asian Traveller that ever the World had' (Pilgrimes III, p65). His travels take the reader through Turkey, Armenia, Persia, Tartary, Arabia, India and China, and gave many Europeans their first taste of the Near and Middle East, as well as the East Indies. Little is known of Mandeville himself, however he claims to be an English knight who travelled between 1322 and 1356, serving under both the Sultan of Egypt and the Great Khan. Although traditionally attributed to Mandeville, in reality the work was an English version of a text known as Itinerarium, of which the original, ascribed to Jean d'Outremeuse, was probably written in Anglo-Norman French. All the pre-1725 editions of Mandeville are scarce, and incunable editions such as this, in a vernacular language, particularly so … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura moderna in tutta pergamena antica proveniente da un antifonario del secolo XV. Esemplare della collezione di Giuseppe Martini, acquistato all'asta Hoepli del 1929 (n° 82 del suo catalogo "Incunabuli"); ex libris a stampa al piatto anteriore e tre timbri di proprietà settecenteschi lungo il testo (Loci Veronae Capucinorum). Assai lievi aloni al margine bianco esterno di alcune carte. Prima edizione. "Interessante documento per la storia della tipografia, stampato, come osservò Proctor, coi caratteri di due diversi tipografi: il Miscomini e il Di Dino" (Cat. Hoepli). Dei trattati contenuti nel volume si segnala come di particolare interesse la Ne foeminea ornamenta Bononiensibus restituantur ad Bessarionem cohortatio, notevole per la storia del costume, nella quale Bosso sostiene la battaglia - non limitata alla sola Bologna - contro l'eccessivo lusso degli abiti delle donne, che aveva portato in quegli anni allo scontro tra Timoteo Maffei, uno dei più importanti predicatori dell'epoca, e le dame bolognesi, che si erano ribellate attraverso una petizione sottoscritta dalla dotta ed eloquente Nicolosia Sanuti.

Missing the last four leaves of table, else complete, including the very rare full-page woodcut. Late 17th or 18th century vellum, spine lettered in ink, loose, ties perished. Light soiling to margins of title and following, otherwise a very nice copy with very wide margins and clean, entirely unsophisticated. 18,000 $ Important Spanish incunable of one of the most important philosophical works; the translation prepared by Leonardo Aretino of Aristotelis´ Ethics, printed in Zaragoza in 1492. The Nicomachean Ethics is Aristotle´s best-known work on ethics, written wither to his son or father, both named Nichomachus; it explores a Socratic question previously explored by Plato, on how men should best live. Aristotle (384 – 322 BC) is arguably of the most significant figures in the history of philosophy and human thought, significantly influential to-date, and especially in the Middle Ages; he studied with Plato and taught Alexander the Great. Aretino (c. 1370 – 1444), Italian scholar, humanist and academic, famous for his Historiarum Florentini populi libri XII, and his translations of Aristotle (the Ethics, Economics, and Politics), is widely recognized as an important historian of the early Reinaissance and dubbed the first modern historian. The full-page woodcut, facing the first leaf of text shows an author -possibly Aretino- presenting his translation to the King, and is dramatically engraved. Paul Hurus [a.k.a.

(firmata Zaehnsdorf). Spazi per le iniz., molti con lettera-guida; due spazi bianchi per parole greche sul f. VII; piccolissimo carattere tondo, nitidissimo ed inusuale. I fogli preliminari contengono il titolo, l'indice del contenuto dei 137 brevi capitoli ed il ''Quinti Aemyliani Cimbriaci poetae Epos hendecasyllabicon in Petri Haedi Anterotica ad cupidinem''; in fine, sul f. XCVII del medesimo poeta Cimbriaco il ''Carmen epigraphicon in tres Haedi Anteroticorum libellos ad lectorem'', carme che prosegue al verso, ed in fine il colophon. Prima edizione, rarissima, di questo trattatello su ''Le forme dell'amore'' composto in forma di dialogo e diviso in tre libri, ristampato a Lipsia nel 1503 ed a Colonia nel 1607; in esso l'autore riprende alcuni temi già trattati nell'operettta giovanile ''Amores'' e, con numerosi riferimenti culturali ad autori antichi e recenti (da Cicerone a Petrarca), indica al nipote Alessandro i pericoli della superbia e dell'amore. Pietro Haedus (latinizzazione del vero cognome Capretto, o del friulano Del Zochul), nato a Pordenone nel 1427 ed ivi morto nel 1504, fu prete, poeta, volgarizzatore (sua la traduzione ital. delle ''Costitutioni de la patria del Friuli'' del 1484) e soprattutto dotto umanista; molte delle sue opere sono tuttora inedite.

INCUNABULA. (HAEDUS, PETRUS) (=PIERRE/ PIETRO CAVRETTO).
(Tarvisius, per Gerardum (de Lisa) de Flandria, 1492, 13th of October). 4to. Very nice later (about 1600) full sheepskinbdg. w. gilt line-frames and gilt corner-ornamentations on boards. Back gilt. Corners and edges a bit worn (mostly due to wormholing). Wormholes to paper on inside of boards as well as to some leaves, though only marginally and not affecting text. Waterstaining throughout. All in all a well-preserved copy. ff. (6), I-XCII + XCV (lacking five leaves: Colophon-leaf and ff. XCIII, XCIV, XCVI, XCVII), in all 99 of 104 leaves. ¶ Rare first edition of the Italian moralist's main work, because of which the great humanist is remembered today. The full title of the work is "Anterotica sive amoris generibus", though "anterotica" is only mentioned on verso of the first leaf, whereas the work opens with the shorter title on the first leaf. This is the only edition to have appeared during the author's lifetime, the only incunable-edition, and the only edition to have existed untill 1608, when the work was printed for the second time in a rather defective and much less beatuful edition under a different title ("De Contemnendis Amoribus"). <br>The author, Petrus Haedus or Cavretto, was born in Pordenone, Italy around 1424 and died around 1501. The mystical work is written as a conversation between two of his friends, a priest and a poet, who hold opposing viws on the topic - love. It is a great representation of renaissance thought, and a valuable contribution to the study of this period. The typescript is a beautiful small roman one, which is very distinctive.<br>The pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ardoynis, Santes de
Venice, Bernardino Rizzo for Johannes Dominicus de Nigro, 19. VII, 1492. Folio (420 x 280 mm). (4), 101, (1) ff. Later calf with gold- and blind-tooling. First edition of a work on poisons, compiled by Sante Arduino (or Ardoini) of Pesaro. "[T]he elaborate compendium on poisons in eight books which Sante Ardoini of Pesaro compiled in the years, 1424-1426, from Greek, Arabic and Latin works on medicine and nature, and which was printed at Venice in 1492, and at Basel in 1518 and 1562. ? Although Ardoini quotes previous authors at great length, his work is no mere compilation, since he does not hesitate to disagree with such medical authorities of Peter of Abano and Gentile da Foligno, and refers to his own medical experience or observation of nature at Venice and to what fisherman or collectors of herbs have told him. He also seems to have known Arabic, and his occasional practice of giving the names of herbs in several Italian dialects is of some linguistic value" (Thorndike). Arduino makes extensive use of the works by Avicenna (Ibn Sina), who "held a high place in Western European medical studies, ranking together with Hippocrates and Galen as an acknowledged authority" (Weisser). Among the numerous other sources he used are Galen, Avenzoar (Ibn Zuhr), Rasis (al-Razi), Andromachus, Albucasis (Al-Zahrawi), Serapion the Younger and Dioscorides. - A very good copy, with only a few marginal waterstains.

ALBERTANUS CAUSIDICUS BRIXIENSIS.
Ingolstadt, [Printer of Celtis 'Epitoma' (?Johann Kachelofen), c. 1492.] - 4to, ff. [8], gothic letter, initials supplied in red, capital strokes and underlining in red; some light, mostly marginal, spotting and staining, traces of old stamp in lower margin of first leaf; mid twentieth-century vellum, spine lettered in gilt; lightly soiled, two corners slightly chewed.Very rare Ingolstadt edition of this treatise on the art of speech, the most influential work of the thirteenth-century Brescian causidicus, Albertano.Printing was introduced at Ingolstadt in 1484. This is one of ten works assigned to the 'Printer of Celtis', the third (anonymous) Ingolstadt press, and may in fact be his first production: 'both forms of d are common in this book, which suggests a first effort by its bad press-work' (BMC). The printer may be identified with Johann Kachelofen, who matriculated at the University of Ingolstadt in 1490 and was evidently supplied with type by his half-brother Conrad, of Leipzig (see Ferdinand Geldner, 'Zum Ingolstädter buchdruck des 15. Jahrhunderts', Gutenberg-Jahrbuch, 1968, pp. 97–9).Provenance: from the library of Boies Penrose (1902–1976), with his bookplate and with pencilled inscription (in Eric Sexton's hand?)

ARETINO Pietro (?)
1492. Quasi sicuramente seconda metà del '700.16°, pp.68, cop. a fiori antica, l'opuscolo è contenuto in un astuccio in p. pelle 800sca, con ricche cornici floreali oro ai piatti, doppio tass. con tit. oro e ricchi fregi oro al dorso. Questa ediz. contiene la Prefazione (p.3: "Manifico utriusque ser Agnello, / Voi, qui scribere scitis quare, quia, / E spesse volte fate col cervello, / di Bartolo e di Baldo notomia, / Nella vostra bizzarra fantasia, / E le leggi passate col coltello, / Nella vostra bizzarra fantasia, / Questi dubbi, di grazia, mi chiarite / Ch'oggi in bordello han mosso una gran lite."); i primi 31 dubbi con relative risoluzioni (pp.4-25); "Altri dubbj amorosi di Pietro Aretino"(pp.27-35, con 17 dubbi e altrettante risoluzioni); "Sonetti lussuriosi di Pietro Aretino"(pp.37-64); "Nicolò Franco all'arcidivino Pietro Aretino flagello de' cazzi"(p.65); "Anacreontica estemporanea a Giovan Gastone de' Medici da alcuni attribuita al Crudeli, da altri al Buondelmonte"(pp.66-68). Dubbi amorosi è una raccolta di brevi componimenti poetici, in cui, tramite storielle licenziose, vengono presentati problemi comuni con la relativa arguta "risoluzione". Ad es. il 6° dei primi Dubbj: "Un prete, ch'alla punta del suo cazzo / aveva un panarizzo da crepare, / gli fu insegnato da un cotal ch'a guazzo / del caldo d'una potta el fesse entrare; / egli a Giulia gentil non per sollazzo / lo mise in potta, ed era sua comare, / sol per non più sentir nel cazzo affanni. / Or qui fece egli ingiuria a san Giovanni? - Risoluzione VI: S'al capitolo quinto voi notate, / decimo quinta, quaes … [Click Below for Full Description]
