Panini
1492. Illuminated Facsimile Manuscript, 472 pages, in Like New Condition. The Book of Hours of Lorenzo de' Medici Limited Edition by Franco Cosimo Panini. Limited Edition of 980 almost Originals, numbered and certified. The original book is in Firenze, in the Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana. This codex is one of the five "libriccini delli offitii, di donna" (small books of the offices, for the use of ladies) of the inventory drawn up in 1492 following the death of Lorenzo de' Medici, who commissioned them for the weddings of his daughters. The description, "for the use of ladies", seems already to indicate that the works are small and also precious, like a jewel - each a work to be consigned to the loving care of a lady of the Renaissance. With its small 10 x 15 cm format, this Ashburnham 1874 codex is hardly larger than a postcard. Before even considering the content, one is struck by its extraordinary violet velvet binding, with gilded silver filigree work bosses and ferrules. The covers also feature a large lapis lazuli and four rose quartzes. In all its parts, this codex is most surely a work of the highest order. This is quite evident in its binding, the harmonious script and the marvellously refined illumination work, ascribed to the engraver, illuminator, cartographer and painter, Francesco Rosselli, who (like Francesco di Antonio del Chierico) was a major exponent of the Florentine school. Each of the 233 leafs of the manuscript includes at least one adornment, an initial or frieze, included with such artistry, awareness of the conventions, and harmony that it cannot … [Click Below for Full Description]

"The book is charmingly illustrated; the designs being redrawn and improved from those in the Venice Aesop of 1487.

JOHN XXI, Pope.
1492. Durling 2596; Thorndike II, pp. 488-513; USTC 697013; VD16, J674; cf. Hagelin, Materia medica, p. 23. Second Egenolff edition in the original Latin, of a mediaeval collection of medicinal recipes intended, as the title "Treasury for the Poor" suggests, to provide readily available and inexpensive remedies to common ailments, probably for medical practitioners of modest means, students and (when they were at least able to read Latin) common people who might need to take care of their own ailments. One of the most important sources for Mediaeval pharmacology, it makes much use of animal parts and common plants and gives a very intimate picture of medical practices among the common people from Mediaeval times until far into the Renaissance. Many recipes are said to derive from Hippocrates, Galen and Ibn Sina (Avicenna), and an appendix presents the Hippocratic oath. From at least ca. 1492 it was attributed to "Piero Spano" or "Petrus Hispanicus", but is now generally believed to refer to the Portuguese Peter Juliani (ca. 1215-1277), better known from his 1276 election as Pope John XXI, as the present edition suggests. With three with early extensive early manuscript recipes. There are also occasional early marginal manuscript notes on the text leaves. Browned throughout and with frequent marginal stains. The fore-edge is worn exactly where one might place one's right thumb when reading or flipping through the pages, so that the edge has been worn away and tattered at that spot in the last 30 leaves. A good copy.

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 Re … [Click Below for Full Description]

His synthesis was in turn based on Galen's Ars Medica (Techne iatrike) and thus became known in Europe as Isagoge Ioannitii ad Tegni Galieni (Hunayn's Introduction to the Art of Galen).

This counterfeit is even rarer than the first edition published in Venice in January 1491/92 by Bernardinus de Choris (Goff P-531). The volume was likely printed a few months after the appearance of the Venetian edition. The printing has been attributed to Bazalerius de Bazaleriis, Caligola's brother and a native of Bologna who was active there between 1489 and 1493 and who had already published another mnemonic treatise in October 1489, the Roseum memoriale by Petrus de Rosenhaym (see no. 24).

1492. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

, . . Belg. Typ. 5128 (1 copy); BMN I, p. 372; Durling 354; KVK & WorldCat (1 copy); for the panel stamp: Oldham, Blind panels, trip. 8 (p. 48 & pl. LX). Sixth copy located of the fourth known Dutch edition of a practical handbook for apothecaries, first published in Latin as Lumen apothecariorum in 1492. The text is divided into 15 chapters, each covering a different category of medicines: powders, syrups, oils, etc. For each medicine, it explains what ailments it can ameliorate and gives instructions for its preparation and use. Little is known about Quiricus de Augustis (ca. 1455?-ca. 1500?), physician from Tortona, Italy. He became personal physician to Marguerite, daughter of the Duke of Bourbon in 1480 and continued in service of her husband, Philippe, Duke of Savoy.The panel stamps on the binding were used primarily ca. 1525/35, and were probably transferred from another binding during one of the two rebindings.With owner's and book dealer inscriptions. Fore-edge of the title-page slightly shaved and a water stain at the foot of one quire, but otherwise in good condition. The panel stamps are worn, but since the same panel stamp appears on both the front and the back board, it can be identified with the help of Oldham. A rare practical manual for apothecaries with ca. 1525/35 panel stamps on the binding.

PEREYRA Benito (1535-1610)
LUGDUNI, EX OFFCINA IUNTARUM, 1492. Legatura del XVII secolo in piena pelle avana, dorso a 5 nervi rilevati con autore e titolo breve in oro su tassello rosso ed eleganti fregi fitomorfi in oro agli scomparti; tagli rossi; guardie marmorizzate. 1 carta bianca; 258 (i.e. 253 per molti errori di numerazione), compreso il frontespizio con titolo in rosso e nero, marca del giglio fiorentino e antico timbro tondo di possesso del Dr. Luigi Sylva; 8 pagine non numerate di indici e 1 carta bianca finale. 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. Buchdrucker des XV. Jhdts., Harrassowitz Vlg., S. 80. - Für die Angaben zum Titelholzschnitt: Meder, Dürer Katalog, S. 18 und Kat.-Nr. 220; Hieronymus, Oberrheinische Buchillustration, S. 50; Schramm XXI, S. 15f. u. Illustr.-Nr. 600. - Für die Angaben zu den Wasserzeichen: Piccard, Gerhard. 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. Die Briefe gelten als "eine wichtige Quelle für die Geschichte seiner Zeit" (Buchberger a.a.O.) Wieder wird nun von der eigentlichen Reihenfolge abgewichen: Nach de

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]
