APULEIUS, Lucius
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 Psy … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nuremberg. Anton Koberger for Sebald Schreyer and Sebastian Kammermeister, 1493. The Nuremberg Chronicle. Folio. Size of binding: 12 in. x 17 ¼ in. (30.48 cm x 43.8 cm); Size of pages: 11 7/8 in. x 16 9/16 in. (30.16 cm. x. 42.06 cm.) [20 ff.] 300 ff. (last one unnumbered); 6 ff. numbered by hand in pencil. The six folios following the 300 are unnumbered, and consist of one blank folio and five folios with the printed Supplement. This is a tall copy with wide margins on all edges. First Latin edition with two contradictory colophons, the second of which gives the date of July 12, 1493 as the date of completion. This copy begins with an index (table) of 19 leaves, preceded by an impressively lettered title page printed by xylography. The book contains 1809 picture-prints (645 individual woodcuts and 1164 repetitions). There are 26 double-page engravings of views of cities; some of these were apparently based upon sketches made on the spot. Sixty-nine other views of cities are based upon 22 woodcuts. Prints of individuals number 598, based on 96 different woodcuts. (This copy includes, unmarked, the famous portrait of "Pope Joan," which was removed from or defaced in many copies. It appears on the verso of leaf CLXIX [169]). There is no indication on individual prints identifying the artists, but Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Durer, and his stepson, Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, are mentioned in the second colophon (folio CCC). A map of Europe and a map of the World are included. There are two colophons; the first, at folio 266, does not name the printer; it gi … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Irving, Washington
1493. Pen and ink on paper, 22 lines. 1 vols. 12mo; books 8vo. '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 r … [Click Below for Full Description]

SCHEDEL, Hartmann
Anton Koberger for Sebald Schreyer and Sebastian Kammermeister, Nuremberg. 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. Nuremberg: Anton Koberger for Sebald Schreyer and Sebastian Kammermeister, 1493.
