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 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]

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).

Faksimile Verlag Luzern. New;. Hardcover. <p>Prayer Book of Anne de Bretagne, 15th century - Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, MS M.50</p><p>A Queen´s Ornate Treasure </p><p>A very personal Prayer Book </p><p>The carefully designed prayer book was commissioned by Anne of Brittany, wife of two successive kings of France, Charles VIII and Louis XII and thus twice Queen of France, for herself and her son Charles-Orland. It was made in Tours from 1492 to 1495 and is now preserved in the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York. The book fascinates in its rich illustration and its 34 airy, light flooded miniatures which are among the most delicate examples to be found at the end of the 15th century. </p><p>They are the work of an excellent illuminator of the time, Jean Poyet, who is mentioned by contemporary authors in the same breath as Rogier van der Weyden, Hugo van der Goes and Jean Fouquet. His extraordinary talent is shown in his extremely spacious and vaporous landscapes. The soft carnation of his faces, the graciously presented figures as well as his bright and frequently unusual combination of colours used for clothing, and last but not least the architecture of Italian influence so typical of his miniatures, announce the advent of the Renaissance in France. </p><p>A Testimony to Motherly Love </p><p>The decoration of the Prayer Book reflects Anne's personal ideas. To live in faith was a great aspiration of hers which is widely expressed in this magnificent uvre. Anne obviously wished to pass on this philosophy to her son, the future King of France, as the sequence of pr … [Click Below for Full Description]
