BOSSO MATTEO.
S.n.t. (Firenze, Antonio Miscomini e Francesco di Dino, 1492). In-folio piccolo; 158 cc.; 5 iniziali in oro: due di grande formato entro tralci di vite intrecciati dipinti in bianco su fondo azzurro e verde chiaro, che si estendono lungo il margine interno; le altre dipinte su fondo rettangolare azzurro, rosso scuro e con decorazioni in oro opaco; altre in rosso; tutte opera di mano fiorentina coeva. 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. L'intervento del Bosso sortì presso Bessarione l'effetto di fa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Augustine, Saint, Bishop Of Hippo.
London: (), 1492. Translated by John Healey, this is the first English version of The City of God. It includes the editorial apparatus of Juan Luis Vives (1492-1540) , a Spanish scholar who studied at Paris from 1509 to 1512 and who in 1519 was appointed professor at Louvain. At the insistence of his friend Erasmus, Vives prepared an elaborate commentary on Augustine's De Civitate Dei, the first to employ extensive collations of different manuscripts. The commentary was published in 1522, with a dedication to Henry VIII. Soon afterwards he was invited to England, where he acted as tutor to the princess Mary while residing at Corpus Christi College. He opposed Henry VIII's divorce from Catherine of Aragon, and so lost royal favor; retiring to Bruges, he died in 1540. 4to [20], 921, [11] pp

CARCANO, MICHAEL DE. - [THE VERY FIRST DESCRIPTION OF THE MOUNT OF PIETY BANKING SYSTEM]
1492. Venetijs [Venice], Per Joane & Gregoriu fres de Gregorijs [Joannem & Gregorium fratres de Gregorijs], [1492]. 4to. Bound in a beautiful contemporary blindstamped full calf binding with brass clasp, neatly recased preserving most of the old binding. First leaf browned, a bit soiled, and with a small library stamp. Back free end-paper with professional repair in lower outer margin. A bit of minor dampstaining to a few leaves, but overall very nice and clean (possibly carefully washed). A fine copy. 227 [numbered] ff. + 5 (last blank) ff. ¶ First printing of Carcano's posthumously published landmark work constituting the very first description of the Monte di Pietà/Mount of Piety banking system - an institutional pawnbroker run as a charity in Europe, developed in cities as a reform against Jewish money lending. Incunables relating to economics and especially banking are of the utmost scarcity; Kress listing only two works, both by Bernadino di Siena, and Goldsmith listing six works. <br><br>According to Christian belief, money lending or usury (usury, in the scholastic thought of the Middle Ages, referred to a lender's intention to obtain more in return that the principal amount of the loan. As a general rule this meant that any interest-taking was usurious and forbidden) was prohibited. This, however, did not diminish the demand for capital, and since it was acceptable for Jews to accept interest rates for money, they in effect soon became the bankers of the day. The disparity between the supply and demand of money consequently resulted in the interest rates soaring to … [Click Below for Full Description]

AESOP (circa 620-564 BCE)
Venice: Manfredus de Bonellis de Monteferrato, 31 January 1491 [1492?]. 4to (211 x 145 mm). 70 (of 72) leaves, a2.7 supplied in facsimile. Gothic type, 40-41 lines, initial spaces with printed guide letters. 64 (of 66) woodcuts within any of five decorative historiated frames; a single woodcut initial. Modern russet morocco. Some spotting and soiling. Provenance: Giambattista Giorno (early ownership inscription); some early marginalia at end, and a few early ink outlines of animals; sold by Philip Hofer to Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow in 1967. Bonellis' first edition of Aesop's Fables, illustrated with a superb series of woodcuts that were in part based on the first Venetian series, used by Bernardinus Benalius in his 20 November 1487 edition (GW 431, only a single imperfect copy known). "The book is charmingly illustrated; the designs being redrawn and improved from those in the Venice Aesop of 1487. There is so much artistic freedom in the treatment of the cuts, that they are fully entitled to be regarded as new and independent compositions. The animal-figures are full of spirit and are sketched with great boldness and precision; a more delicate grace marks the drawing of the human figures. Tasteful borders, composed of separate pieces frequently repeated in various combinations, serve as frames to the pictures. The engraving is executed in fine outlines" (Friedrich Lippmann, The Art of Wood-Engraving in Italy in the Fifteenth Century, London, 1888, p. 98). According to Giovanni Mardersteig, half of the woodcuts are based on those printed by Benalius, and the "other hal … [Click Below for Full Description]

HENRY VII.
Calais: 16 November, 1492. Oblong folio, 1pp, vellum leaf, initialled at head "HR", greater part of Royal Signet seal, two small holes. Mounted on a red velvet ground, glazed, and framed. Writing from Calais and styling himself "king of ffraunce and of England and lord of Ireland", Henry shows a characteristically keen concern with money. Henry had been in Calais since October, besieging Boulogne and on 3 November at Étaples obtaining peace with the French king Charles VIII on reasonable terms – a generous annual payment in compensation for his expenses in the Breton war, a French promise to expel Perkin Warbeck and his supporters, and French pensions for eight of his councillors. But financial matters in England were still preoccupying Henry. The king lays charges of fraud and what we would call creative accounting against "diverse abbeyes priouris collegies parish churches chapelles Gildes and Chauntries Within our counties of Warwik Northampton and Worcester … diverse of the said landes rentes and Ten[emen]tes bee put in feoffement for the Use and behove of the said places and the ministres of the same BY COLOURABLE WAYES OF AMORTISEMENT Without oure sp[ec]ial auctorite or licence therupon obteigned in defraude and abusion of Us …" Because "We ne Wol ner may suffre to bee soo Usurpantly touched", Henry authorises John Meautis [Mewtas], "our Secretary for the frenshe tong", and John Wylde and Benet Medley, clerks of the signet, to investigate the matter and seize lands in the king's name.

SAVARY, (Nicolas) Claude Étienne.
STCN (2 copies); WorldCat (4 copies, incl. 2 the same); cf. Blackmer 1492/977; Gay 1622; Howgego, to 1800, S53. Surprisingly rare first and only edition of the Dutch translation of a collection of literary letters published after Savary's travels in Egypt (1777/79). Claude Étienne Savary (1750-1788) was a French Arabic scholar and traveller, known for his translation of the Quran and his posthumously published Arabic grammar. The letters provide, in a polished literary style, a broad overview of the country, treating its rich history, (historical) inhabitants, agriculture, trade, politics, religion, etc. The first two volumes detail his travels, while the third is pure didactic and treats Egyptian mythology, etc. "Savary was the first Frenchman to cite Arabic texts in a work of this nature, and indeed his knowledge of Arabic served him well in his travels at a time when there were many difficulties for the European explorer in Egypt" (Blackmer)Only the flyleaves and title-pages are slightly foxed, otherwise in very good condition, nearly untrimmed. Bindings only slightly rubbed along the hinges, otherwise very good and attractive bindings.

FORESTI, Jacopo Filippo, da Bergamo
270 leaves, 60 lines & headline, Gothic type, two- to six-line initials supplied in red or blue, printed guide-letters, woodcut initial on a2r. Frontispiece comprising woodcut vignettes of the six days of creation enclosed within woodcut border, border repeated on first text page, 46 woodcuts from 39 blocks. Small folio (314 x 208 mm.), cont. Italian half goatskin over wooden boards tooled in blind, 4 clasps (see below), remains of paper label on front. Venice: Bernardinus Rizus, Novariensis, 15 February 1492/3. Third illustrated edition, augmented with chronicle entries up to 1490. Giacomo Filippo de Bergamo (1434-1520), was born into the noble Foresti family. In 1452, he joined the order of the Augustinian Hermits and lived in the monastery of Sant'Agostino in Bergamo. His major work is his large world chronicle, the Supplementum Chronicarum, which traces the history of the world from the creation to the present day. It was first printed in 1483 and became a great success. Illustration: Many of the woodcuts are from the first illustrated edition, printed by Bernardinus Benalius in 1486; they were copied from Rolewinck's Fasciculus temporum. In the second illustrated edition of 1490 the printer Rizius had several city views improved and recut, including Rome, Venice, Genoa and Verona, which he used again in the present edition. To the present edition he added the borders which had appeared earlier the same year in the Italian Legenda aurea printed by Bonellis. The large six-block cut of the Creation frontispiece and a small Noah's ark cut were taken from the Malermi Bible … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUGUSTIS, Quiricus de.
1492. 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 a Dutch edition of a practical handbook for apothecaries, first published in Latin as Lumen apothecariorum in 1492 and first published in Dutch in 1515, translated by Thomas van der Noot. 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.

Alciatus, Andreas
Small 8vo, vellum spine with marbled boards, 211 woodcut illustrations, 226, [5] pp. Binding worn at extremities, top of spine split at joint, a couple of leaves with chipped or torn corners, but not affecting text or illustrations, emblem index in the rear trimmed closed to numbers, foxing and aging throughout; still a good copy. Rather scarce edition of Andrea Alciato's Book of Emblems. The OCLC locates only one copy of this edition. Alciato, or Alciatus (1492-1550) was a very important legal scholar in his time, and became rather famous for his interpretation of Roman law. However, Alciato is probably best known for his Book of Emblems, which he composed in his spare time. Some scholars feel Alciato's Emblemata, which is a collection of moral lessons, were based on translations from Hellenistic poetry. A first and probably unauthorized edition of this work appeared in 1531, but a second authorized edition was published in 1534. Several editions followed, a couple even appeared without the illustrations. This edition was published in Lyons in 1564.

Konrad Botho:
Mainz Peter Schöffer 6 März Type 1 2 4 7 8 9, 1492. Einspaltiges Original-Inkunabelblatt mit Figuren- und Wappenholzschnitten und einem Holzschnitt (12,6 x 10,8 cm) der "Borch (Burg) Groenick (Gronigk) zu Halverstadt". Klarer Abdruck auf festem Papier. Im Rand etw. fingerfleckig. Blattgröße: 20,8 x 28,3 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Blatt aus dem letzten großen Holzschnitt-Werk von Peter Schöffer mit einer frühen Burgansicht. Das Werk beinhaltet die Chronik des Landes Niedersachsen in niederdeutscher Sprache. Der Verfasser Conrad Botho, auch Bote genannt, schildert den historischen Ablauf der Herkunft der Sachsen, ihrer Herrschergeschlechter, Kriege, Eroberungen und Städtegründungen. Die "Cronecken" versucht regionalsächsische und lokal-städtische Geschichtsinteressen zu einer (nieder)sächsischen Geschichtsidentität zu verbinden. (Brigitte Funke 2001, Veröffentlichungen aus dem Stadtarchiv und der Stadtbibliothek Bd 48, Braunschweig) Die Holzschnitte werden von R. W. Fuchs dem "Meister WB" zugeordnet, während Cornelia Fischer in diesem Zusammenhang den "Meister der Sebastianslegende" als Holzschneider nennt. (Fuchs, Archiv für Geschichte des Buchwesens 1960; Schneider, Peter Schöffer: Bücher für Europa 2003, 92) In der Legende heißt es: "Dysse greve Gero borchgreve to meydeborch de hadde eynen broder de het Sygefrydt de bawede de borch groenick unde starff. Dusse borch de licht in dem stichte to halverstadt unde is des stichtes houet borch." (Die Burg wurde durch den Bruder Siegfried des Marktgrafen Gero gebaut und liegt im Stift Halberstadt.)

As a general rule this meant that any interest-taking was usurious and forbidden) was prohibited. This, however, did not diminish the demand for capital, and since it was acceptable for Jews to accept interest rates for money, they in effect soon became the bankers of the day.
