Schedel, Hartmann
Anton Koberger, Nuremberg, 1493. First and only Latin edition of the most fully realized illustrated book of the fifteenth century and one of the most impressive volumes ever published. Tall folio, bound in full blind-tooled calf, metal clasps, raised bands, copiously illustrated with more than 1,800 woodcuts throughout with the xylographic title and double-page map of Europe present and hundreds of splendid illustrations depicting the beginning of the world as told in the biblical narrative up until the establishment of the major cities and towns of the fifteenth century. Text complete with 20 unnumbered preliminary leaves with leaves 1-299 each numbered and present, 6 unnumbered leaves at rear. Minor wear and contemporary marginal notes and a few small repairs. A near fine example of this monumental achievement in the history of printing which has survived over five centuries. Hartmann Schedel was a medical doctor, humanist and book collector. He earned a doctorate in medicine in Padua in 1466, then settled in Nuremberg to practice medicine and collect books. According to an inventory done in 1498, Schedel's personal library contained 370 manuscripts and 670 printed books. He compiled this elaborate history of the world from "the first day of creation" to his own time in an effort to correct what he felt was a slight to German history by other chroniclers. He divided his work into the usual six ages of the history of mankind, adding a seventh in which he foretold the coming of the Antichrist, the destruction of the world, and judgment day. The invention of printing is men … [Click Below for Full Description]

AL-FARGH N , A mad ibn Mu ammad ibn Kath r [ALFRAGANUS].
Ferrara: Andreas Belfortis, Gallus, 3 September, 1493. First edition, extremely rare, of this foundation work of early modern astronomy, the Kit b f Jaw mi Ilm al-Nuj m, now usually known in the West as the Elements of Astronomy. This is an exceptional copy, in an untouched contemporary binding, with numerous annotations and calculations in a contemporary hand. "This book marks the beginning of the period during which Arab astronomers introduced new elements into the science of astronomy, and exhibited an attitude of healthy scepticism and caution toward the contents of Ptolemy's works" (Sezgin, p. v). "The influence of the Elements on medieval Europe is clearly attested by the existence of numerous Latin manuscripts in European libraries. References to it in medieval writers are many, and there is no doubt that it was greatly responsible for spreading knowledge of Ptolemaic astronomy, at least until this role was taken over by Sacrobosco's Sphere. But even then, the Elements of al-Fargh n continued to be used, and Sacrobosco's Sphere was clearly indebted to it" (DSB). The great French historian of science Pierre Duhem summarized the influence of al-Fargh n 's treatise as follows (quoted from Sezgin, p. vi). "Everything which Robert Grosseteste, a leading figure in the thirteenth-century Aristotelian school of Paris, attributed to Ptolemy in his Summa Philosophiae, was in fact taken from al-Fargh n . We note further that the Italian astronomers from the thirteenth until the beginning of the fourteenth century depended completely upon the book of al-Fargh n when they referre … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARTIALIS, Marcus Valerius
1493 1ed INCUNABLE Martial Epigrams Roman Poetry Epigrammaton Corruption in Rome "I live in a little cell, with a window that won't even close, In which Boreas himself would not want to live." – Martial, Epigrams Martial was a 1st-century Roman poet from Spain most-known for his ‘Epigrams.’ This important, early piece of Roman literature expresses details of life in Rome focusing in on the brutal daily life during the Roman Empire. Martial describes living conditions of Rome, corrupt physicians and senators, cruel treatment of slaves, and secrets and rumors of emperors. Because of the style of Martial’s writing, he is often considered the first insult comic, as he used humor to disguise his disdain for the life with which he was so familiar. This 1493 incunabula printing of Martial’s works is not only a first edition, but it is one of the earliest printed editions of this work. It is complete with all 159 numbered leaves, each of which includes the text surrounded by the commentary of Georgius Merula. Merula was a well-known Italian classical scholar who published commentaries on Cicero, Plautus, Cato and Martial, which first appeared in 1471.

Hartmann SCHEDEL (Norimberga 1440 - ivi 1514)
1493. La monumentale opera di 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. La stampa venne supervisionata dal grande stampatore Anton Koberger, le cui opere erano famose in tutta Europa. Xilografia, in buone condizioni. Schedel's monumental Liber Cronicarum was "one of the most extraordinary works ever produced" 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 and like recent scholarship has shown, Albrecht Dürer may also have collaborated, 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 printing were famous throughout Europe.

CICERO, Marcus Tullius
1493 De Officiis CICERO Rome Political Philosophy Latin Incunable Paradoxa Marsi “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” Marcus Tullius Cicero This work, “De Officis,” describes the best way to live, behave, and work. It also depicts Roman politics and way of life during the Roman Republic after the overthrow of Julius Caesar. This work is notably famous for being the third book ever printed and that “during the 15th-century, ‘De Officiis’ was the pinnacle of moral philosophy” (Baldwin, 590). This work was an important work in English schools through the start of the 18th-century and was a major influence on the works of John Locke. This extremely rare 1493 Pincius edition of the works of Cicero includes ‘De officiis,’ ‘De amicitia,’ ‘De senectute,’ and ‘Paradoxa.’ This printing is based on the 1482 Venice edition, and the Latin text is supplemented by commentary which surrounds the text on each page. Commentaries are of Pietro Marso, Omnibonus Leonicenus, and Martino Filetico.

SCHEDEL, Hartmann
Koberger 1493 Nuremberg. A rare original double printed leaf of incunabula printed in 1493 from Hartmann SCHEDEL'S. Liber Chronicarum (Book of Chronicles) known as the Nurenberg Chronicle. The Chronicle was first published in Latin on 12 July 1493 in the city of Nuremberg. The publisher and printer was Anton Koberger, the godfather of Albrecht Durer, who in the year of Durer's birth in 1471 ceased goldsmithing to become a printer and publisher. He quickly became the most successful publisher in Germany, eventually owning 24 printing presses and having many offices in Germany and abroad, from Lyon to Budapest. Albrecht Durer was an apprentice with Wolgemut from 1486 to 1489, so may well have participated in designing some of the illustrations for the specialist craftsmen (called "formschneider"s) who cut the blocks onto which the design had been drawn, or a drawing glued. From 1490 to 1494, Durer was travelling. A drawing by Wolgemut for the elaborate frontispiece, dated 1490 is in the British Museum. Any examples of works pre-1500 incunables are extremely rare.

Michael WOLGEMUTH (Norimberga 1434 - 1519)
Xilografia, 1493 circa. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Tratta dalla monumentale opera di Hartmann Schedel, il Liber Cronicarum (edizione tedesca), che rappresenta uno "dei più straordinari lavori mai realizzati" dall'editoria del XV secolo. Gli incisori erano Michael Wolgemuth, e il figliastro Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wolgemuth fu anche il tutore di Albrecht Dürer tra il 1486 e il 1490; recenti studi hanno dimostrato come Dürer stesso abbia collaborato alla realizzazione di quest'opera; alcune opere sono infatti attribuite al maestro di Norimberga. La stampa venne supervisionata dal grande stampatore Anton Koberger, le cui opere erano famose in tutta Europa. La danza di scheletri, posta nella settima età del mondo, verso la fine del libro costituisce una sorta di scherzoso memento mori. Mentre uno scheletro suona il flauto, altri tre danzano intorno ad un quinto che è posto entro una fossa. Il disegno preparatorio all'opera, delle sole tre figure danzanti, è conservato al Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum di Braunschweig. Wolgemuth fu uno degli artisti che riscrisse i canoni della xilografia nella Germania del suo tempo, fornendo ai molti editori di Norimberga illustrazioni per libri, le più attraenti delle quali venivano vendute anche separatamente. Le sue opere rintracciavano i progressi fatti nell'incisione, che permettevano di rappresentare i volumi e le ombre con un dettaglio molto maggiore di quanto non fosse stato fatto sino ad allora. Dimensioni 195x225 (il foglio 280x435). "Woodcut, 1493, without the signature of the art … [Click Below for Full Description]

He published the famous Nuremberg Chronicle 1493, Schedel's library has been sold in 1552 to Hans Jacob Fugger. Schedel's Nuremberg Chronicle must have been one of the most popular of incunables, judging by the number of surviving copies. Some 800 copies of the Latin edition have been traced and 400 of the German. This is not surprising considering that this compilation of sacred and profaned history was the most elaborate printed book of its time, illustrated with more than 1800 woodcuts. Among these were a number of double-page city views, a folding map of the world and another of northern and central Europe. The text is an amalgam of legend, fancy and tradition interspersed with the occasional scientific fact or authentic piece of modern learning. Hartmann Schedel, a physician of Nuremberg, was the editor-in-chief; the printer was Anton Koberger, and among the designers the most famous were Michael Wolgemut and Hanns Pleydenwurff, masters of the Nuremberg workshop where Albrecht Durer served his apprenticeship. The first edition of the Nuremberg Chronicle in July 1493 was in Latin and there was a reprint with German text in December of the same year.

The Nuremberg Chronicle is the most extensively illustrated book, and one of the most important, of the 15th century. The text is a universal history of the Christian world from the beginning of time to the 1490Õs. Written in Latin by physician and humanist, Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514) on commission from Nuremberg merchants Sebald Schreye (1446-1520) and Sebastian Kammermeister (1446-1503). The Chronicle was printed by Nuremberg printer Anton Koberger (c.1440-1513), owner of the largest 15th-century German printing house. The Latin edition was printed in KobergerÕs shop between May 1492 and October 1493. In the meantime, a German translation was commissioned to George Alt (c.1450-1510), a scribe at the Nuremberg treasury, and the German edition was printed alongside the Latin one between January and December 1493. The Chronicle was illustrated by German artists Michael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, with the assistance of studio apprentices, including a young Albrecht Durer.
