GELLIUS, Aulus
Venice Bonetus Locatellus: for Octavianus Scotus, 1494. 1494 Aulus Gellius Attic Night Noctes Atticae Greece Philosophy Greek Incunabula"Truth is the daughter of time" ― Aulus Gellius, Noctes Atticae, XIIA very rare and beautiful edition of Aulus Gellius' 'Attic Nights'. This book was a compilation of notes and shorter essays on grammar, philosophy, history, and antiquities which offer a glimpse into the cultures of both Greek and Roman life and society. Gellius began the work while he was living in Attica, Greece, but concluded the work in Rome. The rather disjunct contents include Gellius's observations and unusual interests found in books or overheard in conversation.Incunabula printings of 'Attic Nights' are exceedingly rare, complete or otherwise, and this example is no exception. Printed in 1494 in Venice, this edition is an impressive folio printing with some leaves in double-columns, others without. A curious 15th-century printing of a famous 2nd-century book.Item number: #8212Price: $3500GELLIUS, AulusAuli Gelii noctium Atticarum libri Perquam diligentissime castigati ac nuperrime Impressi.Venice Bonetus Locatellus, for Octavianus Scotus 13.

[Inquisition] [Spanish incunable] [Miquel Albert (editor)].
16 Sept, 1494. Valencia. [Lambert Palmart for Miguel Albert]. Folio, (293 x 207 mm). 296 [of 302] ff., including the almost never-present leave D3, censored by the Inquisition; missing the first quire [a6], which is supplied by a manuscript copy in 16th century Spanish hand. Collation, a6 b-e8 f4 g3 h-z8 [et]10 A-C8 D6+1 E-M8 N O10. Contemporary or near contemporary Spanish limp vellum, spine with paper label, partially gone. A genuine and well-preserved copy, light foxing to first leaves, else in excellent condition.- First edition, exceedingly rare, of this important book; this is the first Spanish printedmanual on Inquisition, including a very rare description of the daily life of the Hebrew Spanish families in the Middle Ages. It describes the rites and customs of the Jewish community so that the inquisitor could recognize and denounce them. The whole book deals with the Jewish question, because, as explained by Benzion Netanyahu in 1995 (The origins of the Inquisition. In fifteenth Century Spain,chapter I),the main interest of the early Inquisition (re-started in 1480) was “to seek and punish converts of Judaism who transgressed against Christianity by secretly adhering to Jewish beliefs and performing Jewish rites and ceremonies”. It was not the Jews themselves who were targeted at the beginning, as they were separated from the Catholic communities, it was the conversos who posted a threat to the faith and at the same time a solution to the internal problems of Spain -a sort of scape goat, a portion of society who could be blamed for the troubled re … [Click Below for Full Description]

GERSON, Johannes de
Argentorati [Strasbourg]: [Flach], Anno d[omi]ni. Nativitatis, 1494. 1494 Jean Gerson INCUNABLE Medieval Defense of Joan of ARC Catholic MysticismAn extremely rare volume from the 1494 printing of the complete works of Jean Gerson. Gerson was one of the most prominent 14th-century French scholars and played an important role in the development of the Council of Constance. He was distinguished by adopting mysticism as a primary focus of his theology, though today, his works are held in high regard especially within the Catholic Church. In 1494, Strasbourg publisher Martin Flach printed the complete works of Gerson in three volumes over the course of a few months at the end of the year. Curiously, the third part is dated August while the first two parts are dated December of 1494.This incredibly impressive first volume of the complete works of Gerson includes the expected full-page woodcut engraving of Gerson climbing toward a castle. It also features sermons, the work "Inuentorium eorum que in operibus Gersonis continentur", as well as his commentary on Saint Bonaventure doctrines.However, the most desirable aspect of this work is the inclusion of the 'De Mirabili Victoria'. It was in this treatise that Gerson defended Joan of Arc's use of male clothing when the rest of the theological world was condemning her of sin. This is one of the earliest printed accounts of Joan of Arc!First Flach edition with large red and blue rubricated initials throughout.Item number: #6892 Price: $5999GERSON, Johannes dePrima pars operum Johannis Gerson + Inuentoriū eorū que in operibus Gerson … [Click Below for Full Description]

DURANTI, Guillelmus
Koberger Anton. Nürnberg, 30 september 1494. Quarto (8.9 x 6.6 inches). 305 (of 306, lacking final blanc) leaves, numbered I-CCCII. Double columns. 45 lines plus headline. Gothic letter, with 7 lines opening initial in red, blue and green with pen work infill and numerous red Lombard initials, a few in blue. Contemporary blind-tooled calf over wooden boards (restored, new spine, front cover with a tear in the leather, a few small wormholes, new endpapers). Two brass clasps (new clasp ties). Third Koberger edition. The Rationale Divinorum Officiorum is arguably the most important medieval treatise on the symbolism of church architecture and rituals of worship. Written by the French bishop William Durand of Mende (1230-1296), the treatise is ranked with the Bible as one of the most frequently copied and disseminated texts in all of medieval Christianity. It served as an encyclopedic compendium and textbook for liturgists and remains an indispensable guide for understanding the significance of medieval ecclesiastical art and worship ceremonies. - Very nice copy on thick paper in a contemporary, richly blind tooled binding with the title "Rationale" in the upper part of the front cover.

BOCCACCIO, Giovanni [BOCCACE]
Paris, Antoine Vérard, 4 Novembre 1494. ______ Format : In-folio. [350 x 235 mm] Collation : (8), 304 ff. [notés CCC] Reliure : Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné, encadrements à froids sur les plats. (Reliure récente dans le style de l'époque.). ____ Première édition d'Antoine Vérard. Elle est magnifiquement illustrée par 10 grands bois gravés. C'est une traduction en français du "De casibus virorum illustrium" par Laurent de Premierfait. Partant d'Adam et Eve, Boccace passe en revue les "cas et ruynes des nobles et femmes renversés par la fortune depuis la création du monde". On y trouve le récit des malheurs d'Athalie, de Denys de Syracuse, de Mithridate, de Philippe le Bel, de Pétrarque et de beaucoup d'autres, avec des considérations sur les songes prémonitoires, l'inconstance de la fortune, les dangers de l'oisiveté, etc. (Bechtel). Le texte de cette édition reprend, avec un style rajeuni, celui de l'édition de 1483, chez Jean Dupré, qui est le premier livre parisien illustré. Dans l'histoire de l'imprimerie parisienne, Antoine Vérard tient une place majeure. Libraire-éditeur, très actif, il est celui qui a le plus contribué au développement de l'art de l'illustration dans le livre français. Le premier feuillet (a1) est un fac-similé sur papier ancien. Il ne porte que deux lignes de texte : "Des nobles malheureux. Imprimé nouvellement à Paris", le verso est blanc. Il manque deux feuillets blancs (M10 et EE8).

Blatt mit einem Holzschnitt (11,6 x 8,2 cm), umgeben von Holzschnittrandleisten und einer 4-zeiligen Holzschnittinitiale "L". Blattgröße: 18,3 x 26,3 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Das Gesamtwerk umfasst 76 Holzschnitte, die aus der sehr seltenen Augsburger Ausgabe von Anton Sorg aus dem Jahr 1479 stammen, es sind seitenverkehrte Nachschnitte der Illustrationen des "Boccaccio-Meisters" für die Ulmer Ausgabe von Zainer aus dem Jahr 1473. Am 22. Oktober 1476 ist Paulus de Constantia (Paul Hurus, auch Hürus oder Hyrus) bereits als Drucker in Barcelona notariell erfasst, in dem er dort mit seinem Kollegen Heinrich Botel die erste in der Druckgeschichte bekannte Subscription protokollieren ließ. Um 1480 baute Paul Hurus seine Druckerei in Zaragoza aus, sodass sie mit ihren Produktionen an der Spitze aller spanischen Offizinen des 15. Jahrhundets stand. In Zusammenarbeit mit spanischen Gelehrten und Übersetzern gelang es ihm zahlreiche literarisch bedeutsame Werke im Erstdruck herauszubringen. Kein deutscher in Spanien tätiger Inkunabeldrucker hatte so enge Beziehungen zu seiner Heimat, wie Paul Hurus. Die Holzschnittblöcke zu diesem Werk hatte er offenbar auf einen seiner Reisen durch Deutschland erworben. Mehrfach reiste er nach Süddeutschland. Nach seinem letzten Druck im Jahre 1499 kehrte er in seine Vaterstadt Konstanz zurück und wurde 1505 in den Rat der Stadt gewählt (Geldner, 1970, … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIGER, FRANCISCUS
Deventer: Jacobus de Breda, 31 July 1494. This is a rare Deventer edition of the guide to letter writing by Venetian humanist and grammarian Francesco Negri, a text that remained one of the most popular manuals on epistolography for a century after its first appearance in 1487. Fine epistolary style was considered an essential mark of education and good breeding in the Renaissance, and this practical handbook offers instruction on composing letters for all situations, from personal to professional, including love letters and notes of sympathy as well as formal letters of introduction, congratulation, and persuasion. The first section sets out the necessary parts of such letters, and offers examples of ideal letters (many from Cicero). This is followed by a list of rules for writing various sorts of letters. For example, a letter of recommendation should begin by praising the person to whom it is addressed, then the person being recommended, before a request is made (for employment, lodging, training, etc.), ending with an offer of some sort of recompense to the addressee. One of Niger's recommended closing phrases--the rather extreme promise of "perpetuam servitutem" ["perpetual servitude"]--lingers on in the "I remain your obedient servant" closing often used in 18th and 19th century epistles. Negri (1452-1523) was a teacher of grammar and rhetoric who served as tutor to the children of the Duke of Ferrara, Alfonso I d'Este, and his wife, Lucrezia Borgia; he is noteworthy as an author from the incunabular period who got to see his works printed in his own lifetime.

GILLES DE CORBEIL (Aegidius Corboliensis).
FIRST COMBINED EDITION of the author's De urinis and De pulsibus, both of which had been published separately once before (in 1483 and 1484 respectively). This edition was edited by Venantius Mutius, with a commentary by Gentilis de Fuligneo.The twelfth century French physician Gilles de Corbeil transplanted Salernitan medicine to Paris and gave expression to its most important achievements in attractive form. He was a pupil at the medical schools of Salerno and Montpellier, and later went to Paris where he was physician to Philippe Auguste of France (1165-1213).He wrote two works in verse form on the two principal diagnostic tools available to physicians of the time, the pulse and the urine. The Liber de urinis constitutes a compendium of uroscopy mainly on the lines of the Regula urinarum of Maurus. It remained the authoritative textbook on uroscopy until the sixteenth century.Klebs 466.1. Goff A94. Osler 7403. Murphy, The history of urology, p. 38. For a study of Gilles de Corbeil, see Ann. Med. Hist., VII (1925), p. 362.

Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-1375):
Zaragoza Paul Hurus 24 Oktober, 1494. Zweispaltiges, 42-zeiliges O-Inkunabelblatt auf festem sauberen Papier mit der Signatur 'd'. Blatt mit einem Holzschnitt (11,5 x 7,5 cm), umgeben von Holzschnittrandleisten und einer 4-zeiligen Holzschnittinitiale "M". Blattgröße: 18,4 x 26 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Das Gesamtwerk umfasst 76 Holzschnitte, die aus der sehr seltenen Augsburger Ausgabe von Anton Sorg aus dem Jahr 1479 stammen, es sind seitenverkehrte Nachschnitte der Illustrationen des "Boccaccio-Meisters" für die Ulmer Ausgabe von Zainer aus dem Jahr 1473. Am 22. Oktober 1476 ist Paulus de Constantia (Paul Hurus, auch Hürus oder Hyrus) bereits als Drucker in Barcelona notariell erfasst, in dem er dort mit seinem Kollegen Heinrich Botel die erste in der Druckgeschichte bekannte Subscription protokollieren ließ. Um 1480 baute Paul Hurus seine Druckerei in Zaragoza aus, sodass sie mit ihren Produktionen an der Spitze aller spanischen Offizinen des 15. Jahrhundets stand. In Zusammenarbeit mit spanischen Gelehrten und Übersetzern gelang es ihm zahlreiche literarisch bedeutsame Werke im Erstdruck herauszubringen. Kein deutscher in Spanien tätiger Inkunabeldrucker hatte so enge Beziehungen zu seiner Heimat, wie Paul Hurus. Die Holzschnittblöcke zu diesem Werk hatte er offenbar auf einen seiner Reisen durch Deutschland erworben. Mehrfach reiste er nach Süddeutschland. Nach seinem letzten Druck im Jahre 1499 kehrte er in seine Vaterstadt Konstanz zurück und wurde 1505 in den Rat der Stadt gewählt (Geldner, 1970, II, 273ff).

Mit De civitate Dei gelangt die Apologetik des christlichen Altertums zu ihrem Abschluß. Das Werk als rein apologetisch einzustufen, verbietet freilich die besonders im zweiten Teil hervortretende umfassende Interpretation der Geschichte als Heils- oder Unheilsgeschichte. Diese Deutung, die das Geschichtsbild des ganzen Mittelalters prägte u. bis in die Neuzeit hinein immer wieder die Geschichts-spekulation beeinflusste, hebt De civitate Dei weit über das situationsbedingte, apologetische Motiv der Abfassung hinaus . Die großen Symbole dieses Werkes haben das Denken und die Phantasie von Jahrhunderts stark beeinflußt.

Bologna, impensis Benedicti Hectoris, 1494. In-folio; 36 carte (l'ultima Š bianca), marca tipografica su fondo nero in fine. Legatura dei primi anni dell''800 in tutto cartoncino., tassello in marocchino con titolo in oro al dorso (parzialmente mancante). Buon esemplare. Prima edizione, rara, dell'opera filosofica pi-- importante dell'Achillini, considerata un punto d'avvio della psicologia moderna. Questo suo trattato segna l'allontanamento dell'autore, sia pur parziale, dai dogmi aristotelici e l'assunzione di una propria autonoma posizione nell'ambito dell'averroismo critico riconducibile al pensiero di Sigieri di Brabante. Anche le sue successive opere, in particolare quelle anatomiche scientifiche, mostrano una forte indipendenza dalla tradizione. Di particolare importanza Š la sua visione cosmologica omocentrica, secondo la quale i pianeti ruotano intorno alla terra in sistemi di sfere concentriche. Non certo a caso egli ebbe modo di insegnare all'universit... insieme e in concorrenza con il Pomponazzi ed ebbe come allievi Gerolamo Fracastoro e Nicol• Copernico che nel 1501 si iscrisse alla facolt... di medicina a Padova. Le opere dell'Achillini (Bologna 1463-1512) nel 1590 vennero messe all'indice. ?Achillini was doubtless heir to the formal, analytical ways of argument?
