      Nürnberg, Anton Koberger,, 1493 - Kreuer, W., Imago Civitatis, pp. 176-180. - Aus "Liber chronicarum". - Sehr große Holzschnittansicht von Venedig aus der lateinischen Ausgabe von Hartmann Schedels berühmter Nürnberger Weltchronik, gedruckt 1493, dem Jahr als Kolumbus nach Europa zurückkehrte nachdem er Amerika entdeckt hatte. Blattnummer XLIIII. Rückseitig die Ansicht von Padua. Die Ansicht basiert auf dem Plan von E. Reuwich aus Peregrinatio bei Bernhard von Breydenbach, Mainz 1486. Der hier angebotene Holzschnitt stellt eine der ältesten authentischen Ansichten von Venedig dar und ist realistischerweise die einzige große Ansicht des 15. Jahrhunderts, welche für Sammler verfügbar ist. Die Holzschneider der Illustrationen zur Schedelschen Weltchronik waren Michael Wolgemut und sein Stiefsohn Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Albrecht Dürer war zwischen 1486 und 1490 in Wohlgemuts Werkstatt zur Lehre, womit der damals noch junge Dürer höchstwahrscheinlich an den Holzschneidearbeiten beteiligt war, da einige seiner Illustrationen zur Apocalypse eine bemerkenswerte Ähnlichkeit aufweisen. - Bugfalte hinterlegt, zwei kleine Einrisse in Rand hinterlegt, zwei Wurmspuren im unteren Rand gerade bis zu den unteren Ecken des Bildes reichend hinterlegt, winziges Loch im Mittelfalz hinterlegt und nachgezeichnet. Nicht geteilt und mit Verlust zusammengesetzt wie dieses Blatt oft zu finden ist. Sehr gutes Exemplar. - Decorative incunable double-leaf in folio showing Venice (Venezia) by Hartmann Schedel. From the famous Liber chronicarum or Nuremberg Chronicle in Latin edition published in 1493, the year that Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America. Leaf number XLIIII. On verso the half-page view of Padua. The view is based on the large woodcut plan of E. Reuwich in Peregrinatio by Bernhard von Breydenbach, Mainz 1486. This offered Schedel view is one of the oldest authentic plans of Venice and realistically the only large format 15th Century view obtainable to collectors. The woodblock cutters were Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wohlgemut was Albrecht Dürer's tutor between 1486-90. Since the young Dürer was active in Wohlgemut's printer shop during the time the woodblock for the Nuremberg Chronicle have produced, he may also have collaborated, since some of the cuts bear a remarkably close resemblance to his Apocalypse illustrations. - Centrefold backed, two marginal tears backed, two worm traces in lower margin backed just touching the lower image corners. Tiny hole in centrefold backed and retraced. NOT cut in two part and glued together with major losses as seen often. A very good copy.

        Opera

      Philippum Pinzium Mantuanum, Venice 1493 - RARE THIRD EDITION Folio. ff. 118 [last blank] leaves 5-117 numbered I-cxii, cvi. [*] 4, a-t6, 44 lines and head-line. Roman letter a little Greek. Capital spaces with some guide letters, red printed title on a1 recto, early marginalia. Expert paper restoration to upper inner corner and gutter of the leaves of the first quire, a few letters on verso of title probably perfected in facsimile, small oil stain on three leaves, marginal marks and occasional light browning in places. A good clean well margined copy in early sheep, covers blind ruled to a panel design, outer panel with blind roll, sympathetically rebacked to match, later pastedowns, lower edges restored, a little worn. Rare third edition edition of the works of Apuleius derived from the first, published in Rome by Swyenheym and Pannartz, edited by Joannes Andreae, Bishop of Aleria. Apuleius is one of the rarest of the relatively major classical authors to find in incunable editions. Despite his continuing popularity down the ages, only four editions of the opera were printed before 1500 and none could be described as common.A philosopher, teacher, and rhetorician, his literary reputation rests principally on the Metamorphoses or Golden Ass, an elaborate romance interspersed with magic, miracles and plentiful Egyptian and oriental hermeticism; it is a work of great entertainment, invaluable as an illustration of the manners of the ancient world and is the only Latin novel which survives whole. The most famous and poetically beautiful portion is the episode of Cupid and Psyche which has inspired, not just writers and poets, but painters and sculptors ever since.Cervantes' Don Quixote is demonstrably indebted to Apuleius, parts of Gil Bas are directly borrowed from him and several of the humorous episodes reappear in slightly different guise in Boccaccio.The works also include The Asclepius, a Latin paraphrase of a lost Greek dialogue (The perfect discourse) featuring Asclepius and Hermes Trismegistus, though there is much debate as to its origins. The Asclepius is one of two philosophical books ascribed to the legendary sage of Ancient Egypt, Hermes Trismegistus, though the Greek original, lost since classical times, is thought to date from the second or third century AD. Amongst Apuleius’ other philosophical works are a speech on demonology, ‘De deo Socratis’; a summary of the life and the doctrines of Plato, ‘De Platone et eius dogmate’; and a translation of a Pseudo-Aristotelic cosmological treatise ‘De Mundo’. Little of Apuleius' work was truly original but he portrayed his characters with a new vigour and versatility which ensured its future appeal.He isthe only example in Latin literature of an accomplished Sophist - in the proper sense of that term - which has come down to us and the loss of most other ancient romances has secured for him an especial influence in the development of modern fiction. He also stands as one of the last exponents of Platonic and one of the first of neo-Platonic philosophy. BMC V 495. ISTC No. ia00936000. Goff A936. Pell 925. Polain(B) 286. Bod-inc A-371.

        Arte del navigare.

      Pedro de Medina's (1493-1567) Arte de navegar (originally published in Spanish in 1545) was a ground-breaking work on compass navigation, and became a standard manual translated into many languages. Medina was famous as a mathematician and cosmographer, and the king of Spain placed him in charge of examining pilots and masters for the West Indies. This second Italian edition (the first was printed in 1554) was translated by Vincenzo Palentino; it has a title-page in red and black with a woodcut printer's device, and woodcut initials, tables, and illustrations, many showing how to make celestial observations. => Also included is a woodcut map showing Europe, the Atlantic, and the New World.

        Four full-page woodcut leaves from the "Liber chronicarum" (Nuremberg Chronicle)

      Anton Koberger, Nuremberg 1493 - Four illustrated leaves, uncolored (one mounted). 1) One leaf from chapter "Tercia etas mundi" (fol. XXVII) depicting in woodcuts the lineage of Christ (Linea Christi) and the Kings of Egypt (Reges Egipti) and vignette of Joseph interpreting dreams before the Pharaoh. On verso, kings and lineage continued and a vignette of an imaginary view of Athens or Minerva. The earliest obtainable view of this period. Three leaves from chapter "Sexta etas mundi" 2) (fol. CV) depicting authors, Seneca, Lucanus, Persius, and the martyrdom of Apostle Philip. On verso, bust portraits of the Popes Linus, Anacletus, and Appollinaris and the martyrdom of Apostle Bartholomew. 3) (fol. CXL) bust portrait of Euthices hereticus and right portion of view of Strassburg. On verso, bust portraits of Popes Simplicius, Felix, Helasius, Anastasius and bishops, Mamercus and Remigius. 4) Mounted (fol. CCLIII). Verso only visible, circumcision of Simon the Sellig child of Trent. One of the most anti-semitic illustrations of the entire book, Simon of Trent was at the center of a suspicious kidnapping case where the Jewish community of Trent was subsequently severely punished. The woodblock engravers of the famous ‘Liber chronicarum’ were Michael Wolgemut, the famed teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Recent scholarship has shown that Albrecht Dürer may also have collaborated on this work given his associations, and since some of the cuts bear a remarkably close resemblance to the Apocalypse illustrations. The printing was carried out under the supervision of the great scholar-printer Anton Koberger, whose press was famous throughout Europe. While it is purported that these leaves are all from the same editions they may have come from different disbound copies. Still, an opportunity to own the illustrated pages of this most famous world chronicle. (Size: 18 x 13 in.) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        ?The Dance of the Deat? (La danza della morte, Imago Mortis).

      Norimberga, 1493. Dal ?Liber Chronicarum Nurembergensi?, xilografia in b / n, cm 31 x 47,5 (il foglio), testo in latino. La monumentale opera dello Schedel, il "Liber Cronicarum", rappresenta uno ?dei più straordinari lavori mai realizzati? dall?editoria del XV secolo. Gli incisori erano Michael Wolgemut, famoso maestro di Albrecht Dürer, e il figliastro Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wolgemut fu il tutore di Albrecht Dürer tra il 1486 e il 1490; recenti studi hanno dimostrato come Durer abbia collaborato alla realizzazione di quest?opera, poiché alcuni dei tratti hanno somiglianze stupefacenti con quelli dell?Apocalisse; alcune opere sono infatti attribuite al maestro di Norimberga e l' ?Imago Mortis?, è una tra queste. La stampa venne supervisionata dal grande stampatore Anton Koberger, le cui opere erano famose in tutta Europa. La prima edizione, in latino, fu stampata a Norimberga il 12 luglio del 1493, la seconda edizione, con testo in tedesco, fu stampata sempre a Norimberga nel dicembre dello stesso anno. Un?altra versione, in edizione ridotta, fu pubblicata in Augsburg nel 1496 da Johann Schonsperger. Mentre nelle edizioni veneziane della cronaca del Foresti il rapporto tra editore e illustratore, e tra testo e immagine configura la dominanza del primo termine, nella cronaca di Norimberga i ruoli tendono a rovesciarsi. È Michael Wolgemut, designatore, pittore e incisore, erede della bottega di Hans Pleydenwurff e maestro di disegno silografico del giovane Durer, che in società col figliastro Wilhem Pleydenwurff si procura i finanziamenti, coopta l?importante tipografo Anton Koberger, e alla testa di un buon gruppo di collaboratori produce circa seicentocinquanta silografie, per un totale di milleottocentonove illustrazioni che costituiscono il fondamento editoriale dell?opera. Il testo è affidato al dotto medico e umanista norimberghese Hartamann Schedel, già studente a Padova, il cui nome non compare né in incipit né in colophon. L?ingente corpus grafico è assai disomogeneo per stile del disegno e peripezia d?intaglio, ma nel suo complesso fornisce ?una nuova espressione delle possibilità espressive e rappresentative della tecnica silografica? (E. Panofsky). Se le silografie veneziane che illustrano il Foresti sono di piccolo formato, di stile squisitamente grafico e tendenti alla stilizzazione decorativa, le vedute disegnate dal Wolgemut sono al contrario di stile pittorico, di dimensioni medio - grandi, ricche di modellato e complicate di arditi scorci prospettici. Di circa centotrentaquattro scenari urbani solo una trentina è più o meno verosimile, e di quelle italiane solo Roma, Firenze, Venezia e Genova; i restanti tre quarti sono figure arbitrarie, come Pisa, Ravenna, o l'inglese Towered Town, ?metafisico? assemblaggio di moduli architettonico - urbanistici e paesaggistici estratti dal formulario di un tedesco; strutture fortificate a sezione prevalentemente cilindrica, con torrini a sbalzo, caditoie e casematte, edifici con facciata a dentelli, tetti spioventi con abbaini, multipli addossati a schiera, una visione iconografica del tutto scollata dal testo dello Schedel che invece si attiene diligentemente alla cronaca del Foresti. Rara rappresentazione tardo quattrocentesca della morte, una delle più rare e curiose di questo tema, per assurdo ?viva? espressione di una danza divertita: tre scheletri danzanti, accompagnati da uno sulla sinistra del foglio che suona una sorta di flauto, mentre in basso, un quinto sbuca da una tomba; curioso il particolare dello scheletro sulla destra, l'unico con i capelli lunghi, i quali discendono lungo la schiena e sembrano risbucare dal ventre.

Books bound in half brown morocco and marbled boards (Author's Autograph Edition, No. 404 of 500 sets). Spines slightly toned. 'two aspiring demagogues, ambitious of the command of a petty fortress' Manuscript leaf from the The Life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus, the passage in chapter XVIII describing the fate of the Fortress of La Navidad (1493). The section begins: "Such is the story of the first European establishment in the New World. It presents in a diminutive compass an epitome of the gross vices which degrade civilization, and the grand political errors which sometimes subvert the mightiest empires. All law and order were relaxed by licentiousness; public good was sacrificed to private interest and passion; the community was convulsed by divers factions ..." The present manuscript (numbered 21?) continues Irving's indictment of those left in charge of the settlement: "until the whole body politic was shaken asunder by two aspiring demagogues, ambitious of the command of a petty fortress in a wilderness, and the supreme control of eight and thirty men. "This account of the catastrophe of the fortress satisfied Columbus of the good faith of Guacanagari; but circumstances concurred to keep alive the suspicions entertained of him by the Spaniards. Columbus paid a visit to the chieftain, whom he found in a neighboring village, suffering apparently from a bruise which he had received in the leg, from a stone. Several of his subjects, also, exhibited recent wounds, which had evidently been made by Indian weapons. The cacique was greatly agitated at seeing Columbus, and deplored with tears the misfortunes of the garrison. At the request of the Admiral, his leg was examined by a Spanish surgeon, but no sign of a wound was to be seen, though he shrunk with pain whenever the leg was touched. As some time had elapsed [...]".

        [Istanbul, Constantinople]

      Nürnberg, Anton Koberger, 1493. 23,8 : 22,9 cm.. Aus "Liber chronicarum". - Dekorativ Inkunabelblatt in Folio-Format von Istanbul während des Gewitters am 12. Juli 1490 aus der lateinischen Ausgabe von Hartmann Schedels berühmter Nürnberger Weltchronik, gedruckt 1493, dem Jahr als Kolumbus nach Europa zurückkehrte nachdem er Amerika entdeckt hatte. Der kleine Holzschnitt darunter zeigt einen Kometen welcher am 7. November 1492 in der Nähe von Ensisheim im Elsass niederging. Blattnummer CCLVII. Die Holzschneider der Illustrationen der Schedelschen Weltchronik waren Michael Wolgemut und sein Stiefsohn Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Albrecht Dürer war zwischen 1486 und 1490 in Wohlgemuts Werkstatt zur Lehre, womit der damals noch junge Dürer höchstwahrscheinlich an den Holzschneidearbeiten beteiligt war, da einige seiner Illustrationen zur Apocalypse eine bemerkenswerte Ähnlichkeit aufweisen. - Papierergänzung in der linken oberen Ecke ausserhalb der Darstellung. Kleines Wurmloch im Rand. - Decorative incunable leaf in folio showing Istanbul (Constantinople) duringthe lightning strike on July 12, 1490 by Hartmann Schedel. From the famous Liber chronicarum or Nuremberg Chronicle in Latin edition published in 1493, the year that Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America. The small woodcut below shows the fall of a comet on November 7, 1492 near Ensisheim in the Alsace. Leaf number CCLVII. The woodblock cutters were Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wohlgemut was Albrecht Dürer's tutor between 1486-90. Since the young Dürer was active in Wohlgemut's printer shop during the time the woodblock for the Nuremberg Chronicle have produced, he may also have collaborated, since some of the cuts bear a remarkably close resemblance to his Apocalypse illustrations. - Upper right corner outside of the printed area torn off and restored. Small wormhole in margin.

        Liber Chronicarum (Single leaf)

      Anton Koberger for Sebald Schreyer and Sebastian Kammermeister, Nuremberg 1493 - Title: "De regno polonie et eius initio." This is an original uncolored woodcut depicting the Kingdom of Poland from the Latin issue of Liber Chronicarum (or Nuremberg Chronicle) by Hartman Schedel (1440-1514). Maybe the earliest printed map of Poland. "De regno polonie et eius initio" made with great fantasy. Showing townviews, waterways, buildings, ships etc. This chronicle was the most extensively illustrated book of the 15th century and a milestone in printing history. It contained hundreds of illustrations, ranging from portraits and Biblical scenes to human monstrosities. But it is for the town views, often the earliest views of the cities depicted, that the Chronicle is best known today. Just a couple of small marginal stains; some red underlining; margins and edges very nice. Overall, very good. Size: (HxW) (including margins): 15.5 x 10.8 inches / 40 x 27 cm Aritists: Michael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff Source: SCHEDEL, Hartmann. Liber Chronicarum.

        Liber Chronicarum

      Nuremberg: Anton Koberger, 12 July, 1493. Imperial folio (433 × 302 mm), 323 leaves (of 326; without first and last blank, and leaf CCLXI which is blank except for the printed headline and folio number). Seventeenth-century Italian mottled calf, rebacked with original spine laid down, spine divided in seven compartments by raised bands, gilt lettered in second, others gilt with a wide decorative roll enclosed by a smaller roll, sides with decorative roll border, marbled endpapers, edges decoratively sprinkled in red and blue. 63 lines plus headline, Gothic letter, xylographic title-page, 645 woodcut illustrations by Pleydenwurff and Wohlgemuth repeated to a total of 1,809, some full-page, others double-page, including a double-page map of the world and double-page map of Europe. From the library of the Trappist monastery of Buonsollazzo in Tuscany, part of the Italian Congregation of St Bernard, with ink ownership inscriptions to first page of text (fol. 1r) at foot, one of the intermediate blank leaves (fol. CCLVIIII), and at foot of fol. CCLXVI, the latter inscription dated 1618; very occasional minor ink marginalia, a few capitals supplied in black ink in what appears to be a 17th-century Italian hand. Some skilful leather repairs, the xylographic title skilfully extended at outer and lower margin, a little thumb-soiling to the lower outer corners, a few minor marks or stains, a very good copy, the paper generally strong and fresh. First edition of the Nuremberg Chronicle, the most extensively illustrated book of the 15th century, a universally acknowledged masterpiece of complex design. Compiled by the Nuremberg doctor, humanist and bibliophile Hartmann Schedel (1440–1514), the text is a year-by-year account of notable events in world history from the Creation to the year of publication, including the invention of printing at Mainz, the exploration of the Atlantic and of Africa, as well as references to the game of chess and to medical curiosities, including what is believed to be the first depiction of Siamese twins. The book is especially famed for its series of over 1,800 woodcuts depicting religious subjects from the Old and New Testaments, classical and medieval history, and a large series of city views (including Augsburg, Bamberg, Basel, Cologne, Nuremberg, Rome, Ulm and Vienna), as well as a double-page map of Europe including the British Isles, Iceland and Scandinavia, and a Ptolemaic world map apparently sourced from the frontispiece of Pomponius Mela's Cosmographia (Venice, Ratdolt, 1488). The work was carefully planned, with manuscript Examplar volumes being made for both the Latin and the German text version that followed closely afterwards: the sketches in these confirm the active involvement in the project of the young Albrecht Dürer, then just completing his apprenticeship in Pleydenwurff and Wohlgemuth's workshop. Wilson, The Making of the Nuremberg Chronicle (1976), approves Dr Peter Zahn's count of probably 1,500 Latin copies printed.
