Downs: Famous Books since 1492, no.82.FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, WITH THE MANUSCRIPT NOTES BY HENRY THOMAS BUCKLE [1821-1862] FOR HIS REVIEW OF J.S.MILL?S ON LIBERTY which appeared in Fraser?s Magazine May 1859Henry Buckle, author of The History of Civilisation in England 1857-1861, eminent chess player, and book collector [his library extended to over 20,000 volumes].Buckle regarded John Stuart Mill as the greatest living thinker, but he also learned much from Enlightenment philosophers such as Voltaire, Montesquieu, Adam Smith, and Kant. 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]

(BINDINGS - CLAES VAN DOERSMAELE). 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

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"). 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.The prominent … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jean Poyet
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]
