(INCUNABEL VENETIË). SILIUS ITALICUS
Venetië, Bonetus Locatellus voor Octavianus Scotus, 18 mei 1492. 31,5 x 20,5 cm. Flexibel perkament, waarschijnlijk 17e-eeuws. 156 bladen. Watermerk kruis, slang en ossenkop. Met inleidende brief van Petrus Marsus aan Virginio Orsini en een Leven van Silius Italicus. Tekst met commentaar op elke pagina. Verschillende mooie houtgesneden initialen en een groot uitgeversmerk 'OSM' aan het eind. 2e Venetiaanse editie. Met dubbele (oude) inscripties op de rug. Band wat stoffig en versleten. Titel in balpen op voorzijde. Alle sneden verguld. Enkele tekstpagina's verbruind. Twee oude inscripties in bruine inkt op de eerste blanco bladen.* Punica, het langste epische gedicht dat is overgeleverd uit de Romeinse oudheid, is geschreven door de politicus en dichter Tiberius Catius Asconius Silius Italicus (28-103 AD) en behandelt de Tweede Punische Oorlog (219-201 v.Chr.). Een der inscripties refereert aan een munt die Silius als proconsul in Smyrna liet slaan (in 77-79 AD) ter ere van zijn broodheren, de caesars Titus en Domitianus. Dit is een meesterwerk van strenge Venetiaanse boekkunst, gedrukt in ferme tekstblokken uit een mooie antiqua, die stoer standhouden in een zee van commentaar uit een harmonisch, kleiner lettertype. De eenvoudige titelpagina zegt alleen 'Syllius Italicus. Cum com-/ mentariis Petri Marsi'. Goff S-508.

AUGUSTIS, Quiricus de.
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..

(INCUNABLE). MARCHESINUS, JOHANNES
Venice, Simon Bevilaqua, July 12, 1492. 16 x 12 cm. Old vellum with written spine title. 273 leaves. Title page (just the word 'Mamotrectus') in photocopy. At the end, part of a benediction leaflet was used to fasten the book block to its binding. Two identical leaflets plus four strips of a woodcut decoration were used to fill up the binding. Some inscriptions at the beginning and the end (a.o. a drawing of a flower vase on one of the last pages). Although soiled and a bit damaged, this is an unpolished, authentic, attractive incunable. It is the 21st of the 23 incunable editions of this text, usually called 'Mammotrectus super bibliam', however, in this book consistently spelled with one M: Mamotrectus, without 'super Bibliam'. The meaning of this curious title is 'nourisher on the Bible', strongly suggesting 'the Bible's Breast Milk'. It's a handbook explaining words and notions of the Bible and other important texts, such as the letters of Saint Jerome to Paulinus and Desiderius, but also about clothes of priests, Latin accents and other practical subjects. The Mammotrectus would be useful if you were preparing a sermon or some other priestly act. In the colophon another version of the title is used: Mamotrectus tam bibliae quam aliorum plurimorum librorum, 'Mamotrectus from the Bible as well as from many other books'. Goff M252; BSB M-167. Extensive description on request (and in our catalogue 64). = Inkunabel Venedig 1492.

"Livius Patavinus, Titus ; Florus, Lucius Annaeus"
"16º: a-s#8, #2a-g#8 h#2, gepag.: 296 [ 8], 118 pp., op beide titelpagina's drukkersmerk ""Virtute duce, comite fortuna"" in houtsnede. Kartonnen band, klein stukje uit rand titelpagina.".Vroege druk van een deel van de vijfde decade (de boeken 41 t/m 45) van 'Ab Urbe condita' van Titus Livius (59 voor Chr. - 17 na Chr.). Livius beschrijft in wat waarschijnlijk het omvangrijkste werk uit de oudheid, is de geschiedenis van Rome. Bij zijn dood telde het 142 boeken. Daarvan zijn er slechts 35 in hun geheel bewaard gebleven, de eerste tien boeken (periode tot 293 voor Chr.) en de boeken 21-45 (tot 167 voor Chr.). Achter boek 45 volgt in deze uitgave een 'Epitoma' (Uittreksel) van het gehele werk van Livius, opgesteld door de Romeinse schrijver Lucius Annaeus Florus (circa 70 - 140 na Chr.). De geleerde boekverkoper-drukker Sébastien Gryphius (circa 1492 - 1556) was vanaf 1524 tot zijn dood in Lyon werkzaam. In de jaren 1530 introduceerde hij in Frankrijk het boek in klein formaat, waarvoor hij de cursieve letter ging gebruiken die begin 1500 door de Venetiaanse drukker Aldus Manutius was uitgevonden. Deze uitgave van Livius is daarvan een goed voorbeeld.

Pedro Brun and Juan Gentil, Seville, 1492. FIRST EDITION folio, 96 unnumbered ll, a6 b-h8 i10 k-m8. Gothic letter in two sizes, 48 lines plus headline to a full page, double column, ornate white on black woodcut initials; two opening 17-line paragraphs in red, final ll. with 47 woodcut shields, 3 herald's tunics and 15 pennants. Some ll. lightly browned, some probably washed long since; a very good, large copy in 19th C crushed crimson morocco, covers triple gilt ruled, spine with richly gilt compartments, inner dentelles gilt, a.e.g., two 20th C bookplates on pastedown. First and only early edition of the first book on heraldry printed in Spain in the only known production of this Seville press and one of a tiny number of Spanish secular vernacular incunables that have survived. About 850 Spanish incunable editions of all sorts are known, of which more than 70% consist of religious/philosophical/classical/humanistic/grammatical texts - the staples of university and church. By contrast, only 25 historical editions of the period are recorded in aggregate, in all 3 printed languages of the Peninsula - Spanish, Catalan and Portuguese - less than 3% of the total (see BMC X, G.D. Painter's fascinating 'General Introduction'). The present work in fact is not just heraldic, but also deals extensively with the rights, duties and attributes of the princes and nobility of Spain, illustrated with biographical exemplars depicting their chivalry, greatness and other noble virtues, generally categorised under 'history.' Beginning with the dedication to Fernando "el Católico", the first b … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

(INCUNABLE). SILIUS ITALICUS
Venice, Bonetus Locatellus for Octavianus Scotus, May 18, 1492. 31 x 20 cm. Flexible vellum, probably from the 17th century. 156 leaves. Watermarks: cross, snake and oxhead. With introductory letter by Marsus to Virginio Orsini and a Life of Silius Italicus. Text with commentary on each page. With several nice woodcut and metalcut initials and a large woodcut printer’s mark 'OSM' at the end. 2nd Venetian edition. All edges gilt. With double (old) spine inscription. A bit soiled and worn, title in ballpoint on upper cover. Some text pages browned. Two old inscriptions in brown ink on the first two unprinted leaves, one crossed out, the other reads: 'Vi sono monete di Smirne, che ricordano questo poeto consolare'. Punica, the largest epic poem that survived from Roman antiquity, was written in dactylic hexameters by poet and politician Tiberius Catius Asconius Silius Italicus (about 28-103 AD). In seventeen Books containing more than twelve thousand verse the Second Punic War is painted, from the moment Hannibal Barcas laid siege to Saguntum in 219 BC to the victory of Scipio the Younger at Zama (near Carthage, 202 BC). The epos contains many classical heroic accounts of large battles in Spain, Italy and Carthago, but also praise for Silius' contemporary employers, the emperors Vespasian and Domitian. Silius admired Cicero and Vergil so much that he acquired Cicero's property at Tusculum and set Vergil's birthday above his own. The inscription on the inside upper cover points to a coin occasioned by Silius when he was proconsul in Asia (minted in 77-79) honoring Titus and Dom … [Click Below for Full Description]

A bit soiled and worn, title in ballpoint on upper cover. Some text pages browned. Two old inscriptions in brown ink on the first two unprinted leaves, one crossed out, the other reads: 'Vi sono monete di Smirne, che ricordano questo poeto consolare'. Punica, the largest epic poem that survived from Roman antiquity, was written in dactylic hexameters by poet and politician Tiberius Catius Asconius Silius Italicus (about 28-103 AD). In seventeen Books containing more than twelve thousand verse the Second Punic War is painted, from the moment Hannibal Barcas laid siege to Saguntum in 219 BC to the victory of Scipio the Younger at Zama (near Carthage, 202 BC). The epos contains many classical heroic accounts of large battles in Spain, Italy and Carthago, but also praise for Silius' contemporary employers, the emperors Vespasian and Domitian. Silius admired Cicero and Vergil so much that he acquired Cicero's property at Tusculum and set Vergil's birthday above his own. The inscription on the inside upper cover points to a coin occasioned by Silius when he was proconsul in Asia (minted in 77-79) honoring Titus and Domi … [Click Below for Full Description]

CARCANO, MICHAEL DE. - [THE VERY FIRST DESCRIPTION OF THE MOUNT OF PIETY BANKING SYSTEM]
Venetijs [Venice], Per Joane & Gregoriu fres de Gregorijs [Joannem & Gregorium fratres de Gregorijs], [1492]. 4to. In contemporary worn full calf. The surface of the thick leather is worn off, so it appears as suede. Some surface-holes in the leather, and extremities and corners worn. Handwritten paper label to spine. Mideaval vellum leaves have been used as end-papers, giving us a front free end-paper and pasted-down front- and end-papers neatly and closely annotated in abbreviated Mideaval Latin. Half of the pasted-down front end-paper is from another Medieval Latin manuscript, of a larger and more stereotypical script. First blank with a contemporary hand-written (presentation-?) inscription and last two blanks with a couple of drawings, presumably by the previous owner, who was presumably a monk. The drawing on the final blank is of a monk holding up his hand, the drawing on the second-last blank is of the hand. Small stamp to first leaf ("Domus Studiorum"). Fist blank soiled, and first ten leaves with vague dampstain to outer margin, not affacting text. Last three blanks with small wormtrack. Otherwise internally a very fine, clean, and fresh copy. 2 blanks + 232 ff. + 3 blanks.. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was influenced by the work of Auguste Comte, but even more by that of the statistician Adolphe Quételet. From these various thinkers Buckle concluded that all human behaviour is subject to law, and therefore that there can be a science of human society. Many critics in his own day and later thought of Buckle as the English disciple of Comte, but, as Mill declared, Buckle agreed with the founder of positivism on little other than the basic notions of the regularity of human behaviour and the historical progress of … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOCCACCIO, GIOVANNI
Milan: Zanotti Castiglione per Andrea Calvo, 10 February 1521; Bologna: Franciscus Plato de Benedictis, ca, 1492-93. FIRST PRINTING OF BOTH WORKS. This is a fortunate combination of two Boccaccio first editions in a wonderful Renaissance binding by a known binder, and with distinguished provenance. "Amorosa" tells of a dream of love in 50 cantos of terza rima, the text here with Boccaccio's own revisions, as well as with additional work by the humanist editor Claricio, who includes a defense of Boccaccio's poetry. The tale follows a dreamer led by a female guide through a castle to the garden where his beloved awaits, plot elements that are clearly reminiscent of Dante, and modern critics now see "Amorosa" as having exerted influence on Petrarch. The bound-in incunabular text here, the novel "Urbano," was represented originally as a newly discovered work by Boccaccio, but it is now known to be a spurious work variously attributed to Giovanni Buonsignori, Buonaccorsi da Ginestrata, or Cambio de Stefano. The hero, Urbano, is the son of Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa and a peasant girl whom he raped. Urbano bears a strong resemblance to the emperor's legitimate heir, Speculo, and is tricked by unscrupulous Florentine merchants into marrying the daughter of a sultan who believes him to be the emperor's heir. After numerous dramatic twists that include the death of Speculo, the plot is resolved when Frederick acknowledges Urbano as his heir. The first dated work by our Bolognese printer Franciscus de Benedictis (known by the nickname "Plato") appeared in 1482, and he began prin … [Click Below for Full Description]

RIESE, Adam.
A beautiful copy, of "pobably the most popular commercial arithmetic of the sixteenth century. So firmly did it impress itself upon the schools that 'nach Adam Riese' is a common expression in Germany to-day, ... It was to Germany what Borghi's book was to Italy and Recorde's to England." (Rara Aritmetica). Adam Riese (1492-1559) was "the greatest of all the Reichenmeisters of the sixteenth century" (David E. Smith). "He was the most influential of the German writers in the movement to replace the old computation by means of counters 'auff der Linien' by the more modern written computation 'auff Federn'." (Smith: History of Mathematics, p.337). "His largest and most popular computation book of 1550, which, on 196 quarto sheets, was concerned especially with 'Practica': 'Computation on the lines and with the quill / set forth at length / including the advantages and speed of the <i>Proportiones Practica</i> / with thorough instructions in mental arithmetic. ...' This was considered the best computation book of its time" (Menninger: Number Words and Number Symbols). Erwin Tomash Library on the History of Computing R93; Norman 1834; Honeyman 2652.. 4to: 207 x 165 mm. Fine contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wood, with bronze corner-pieces and clasps. 196 leaves (complete). Various contemporary inscriptions to front and rear end-papers
