LUCIAN OF SAMOSATA [A.D. 120-180].
[Colophon on p6v:] Venice: Simon Bevilaqua [for Benedetto Bordone], 25 August 1494. First Edition of this collection of prose works in Latin translation by the second century Greek satirist Lucian of Samosata, edited by Benedetto Bordone. Except for the 'Vera historia', printed in Naples as early as 1475, and the 'Asinus aureus', which was first printed c1477, all the writings appear here for the first time in print, including 'Scipio', 'Hercules', 'Timon [the Misanthrope]' (the inspiration for Shakespeare's tragedy 'Timon of Athens'), and the 'Calumny of Apelles' (the source for Botticelli's painting of the same name). With its descriptions of interplanetary travel and extraterrestrial life forms the 'Vera Historia' is generally considered to be the earliest known example of science fiction writing. It is also the earliest detailed account of a trip to the moon in Western literature. The work served as inspiration for writers such as Sir Thomas More's ('Utopia') and Jonathan Swift ('Gulliver's Travels'). Editor Benedetto Bordone (c. 1460-1531) is known first and foremost as a book illuminator and as cartographer (his 'Isolario' was first published at Venice in 1528). The beautiful black-ground woodcut border with flowers, masks and animals on the recto of the second leaf is attributed to him and is the earliest extant evidence of his work as a designer of woodcuts. "While scholars divide themselves over whether Lucians greatest contribution lies in his preservation of classical rhetoric or his innovative force as a satirist, in either case what continues to interest casual … [Click Below for Full Description]

Norman with their printed book plates on inner front cover. In a cloth box. Nuremberg, Anton Koberger, 17 March 1494. First dated, and first Koberger edition of the world-famous and most notorious book on witchcraft and demonology, a revealing early document "in the history of psychiatry" (Norman) which remained for a very long time the standard work on witches, particularly in Germany. No book in the whole range of literature contains such a mass of pernicious and obscene imagination combined with theological and legal ingenuity as this monument of superstition, widely accepted for over 200 years. All 15 editions have become rare. This work is an important document of the inquisition by the Dominican and witch hunter Henricus Institoris (i.e. Krämer) with the alleged co-author Jacobus Sprenger. The authors Heinrich Krämer, latinized Institoris, together with Jakob Sprenger, were the first inquisitors of heresy and witchcraft appointed for Germany.

Cette édition des "Lettres" de Sénéque était destinée aux étudiants, la typographie est très élégante et les lignes sont bien espacées. Exemplaire rubriqué : de grandes initiales et les marques de paragraphe ont été peintes en rouge. On ne connait pas de livres imprimés par Pierre le Dru avant 1494-1495. Cependant il est certain qu'il était installé comme imprimeur en 1488, rue Saint-Jacques, à Paris. Il a imprimé surtout pour les autres libraires.

(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).

Manzoni I/351; Senato V/220ff. *PARMA, Stadt in der Emilia-Romagna, beiderseits des gleichnamigen Flusses gelegen, Hauptstadt der gleichnamigen Provinz, Bischofssitz, Universitätsstadt. 1973: 176.000 Einwohner (1881: 44.492 E.) Parma, ursprünglich eine etruskische Siedlung, wurde 183 v.Chr. römische Kolonie und entwickelte sich an der Via Aemilia zu einem bedeutenden Handelsplatz. Nach der Zerstörung im ersten vorchristlichen Jahrhundert erlebte Parma unter Theoderich dem Großen und dann unter byzantinischer Herrschaft (ab 553) einen neuen Aufschwung und nannte sich damals nicht ohne Grund Chrysopolis (=Goldstadt). Seit 774 n.Chr. unter der Herrschaft von langobardischen Grafen unterstand dann die Stadt der Regierung ihrer Bischöfe. Im 12. und 13. Jahrhundert war Parma intensiv in die Auseinandersetzung von Kaisertum und Papsttum verwickelt, verlor dabei 1303 seine Unabhängigkeit und seine republikanische Verfassung. Seit 1512 war Parma Teil des Kirchenstaates. Der romani … [Click Below for Full Description]

Primera edición en italiano de las Epistolae ad Lucilium, traducidas por Sebastian Manilio. La Pistole es el único libro estampado por este impresor.Lucio Aneo Séneca, preceptor, colaborador y finalmente víctima de Nerón fue sin duda el más distinguido intelectual de la Roma del siglo i de nuestra era. Incluso puede decirse que responde na mayor medida que cualquier otro clásico latino a la moderna figura del intelectual: a la del hombre de estudios que sólo en razón de ellos llega a tener influencia y poder político en la sociedad de su tiempo. Para la posterioridad la obra de Séneca ha quedado consagrada como el más amplio e ilustre corpus de filosofía estoica. Dentro de tal corpus ocupan un lugar de privilegio las ciento veinticuatro cartas que el filósofo dirigió a su amigo Lucilio y que son algo más que un epistolario privado. En efecto, pertenecen a un género literario consagrado ya en la propia Grecia -Platón, Epicuro, etc.- como uno de los vehículos capitales de la exposición filosófica, al lado del dialogo y de la diatriba, y por ello trascienden del estrecho marco de la correspondencia personal; no sólo se dirigen a su destinatario formal, ni se quedan en la temática contingen … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAVALCA DOMENICO.
FIRENZE, (BARTOLOMEO DE LIBRI, 1494 CA.). In-4°; 142 cc. compresa la prima con la grande xilografia; bella legatura ottocentesca in tutto marocchino oliva a grana lunga con doppia cornice di filetti in oro ai piatti, titolo e filetti in oro al dorso, merletto interno, tagli dorati. Qualche lieve macchiolina ma bell'esemplare. Seconda edizione di questo noto trattato dello scrittore domenicano. La prima fu stampata sempre a Firenze nel 1493. Quest'opera sui pregi della lingua riveste una sua importanza per il "volgare" usato dall'autore (1270-1342) che lo colloca tra i primi scrittori della lingua italiana. Di rilievo in questa edizione è la grande xilografia, diversa da quella che appare nella prima, e considerata come una delle più significative tra le fiorentine della fine del '400. HC 4777. GW 6401. IGI 2625. BMC VI 658. Goff C-332. Sander 1849. Kristeller, Early Florentine Woodcuts, 96a e fig. 32. Martini, Incunaboli n° 119.

APPIANUS Alexandrinus
Mazzali Francesco, 1494. in-folio, ff. 136 n.n. (privo dell'ultimo bianco), car. romano; legatura del XVII secolo in pergamena, tassello con titolo in oro al dorso liscio. Dedica del traduttore Pier Candido Decembrio a Alfonso V, Re d'Aragona. Si tratta del primo libro uscito dai torchi del Mazzali a Reggio Emilia e del quarto in assoluto stampato in questa città; un suo parente, Alberto de Mazalibus, aveva introdotto la stampa a Reggio Emilia pochi anni prima. Seconda edizione del De bellis civilibus, la parte più importante di ciò che ci è giunto degli scritti di Appiano. L'opera di Appiano, storico greco vissuto a Roma nel II sec. d.C., ebbe il merito di mutare l'usuale struttura annalistica della storiografia romana, dividendola sistematicamente per argomenti: in questa prima parte in cinque libri, narra la storia interna di Roma dal 133 al 35 a.C. Importante edizione per la storia della tipografia di Regio Emilia. Ottimo esemplare, con belle annotazioni di mano coeva nei marginalia. Al titolo antico timbro ripetuto color seppia della famiglia Colonna con inziali "IC".

Gregorius I.
[colophon: Parisiis: Udalrici Gering et Berchtoldi Renbolt, 1494/5]. 4to (21.2 cm; 8.375"). [79] pp. Lacks final blank (only). Discussion of the miracles and works of various 6th-century Italian holy men, including an entire book dedicated to Saint Benedict, as well as thoughts on the immortality of the soul. Pope Gregory I (540–604), described as "one of the most commanding figures in ecclesiastical history," turned his father's mansion into a Benedictine monastery before becoming pope following Pelagius II's death from the bubonic plague. In the mansion-turned-monastery he worked to improve the lives of Roman peasants and coordinated an expansion of Catholicism through massive amounts of correspondence (Holweck, F. G., A Biographical Dictionary of the Saints, pp. 446–47).    The text is printed in Gothic type in a single column with marginal notes. A scribe has => completed all of the capitals which had been left blank with guide letters still visible. He has also provided guidance to the reader via underlining, paragraph markers, alternating use of red and blue, and touches of yellow; the first initial below the incipit is accomplished in a combination of the first two colors and every "C" in the word "Capi[tulum]" at the beginning of a new chapter has been highlighted in the third. A red silk fore-edge tab marks the first page of text and a blue one marks the Tabula. => Not only was this book carefully printed, it was afterwards embellished with remarkable, even lovingly careful consistency.    The title-page contains a woodcut printer's device with two men in front of … [Click Below for Full Description]

PIRCKHEIMER, Willibald.
Alden & Landis 530/33 (4 copies); USTC 659536 (5 copies); VD16, P2904 (same 5 copies); Sabin 63017; for Pirckheimer: Contemporaries of Erasmus III, pp. 90-94. Rare second(?) edition (published in the same year as the first) of a Latin treatise on the geography of "Germany", interpreted very broadly to include the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and some regions in eastern Europe, where "Germans" lived or had lived. The last three pages discuss recent Spanish discoveries in America (suggesting some may have been discovered by the Carthaginians but kept secret), including the island Hispaniola (noting the observation of an eclipse there in 1494, in fact by Columbus) off the continent that Pickheimer says the Spanish call "Sanctae Marthae". He also mentions Mexico, Temistitan (Mexico City) and not far from them the island[!] Yucatan and other newly discovered islands ("à qua etiam non longe remota est insula Iucatan cum aliis nuper repertus").The title-page is tattered and restored, very slightly affecting the right edge of the border, but otherwise in good condition and nearly untrimmed, preserving most point holes and some deckles. An important early geographic treatise as well as an early Americanum.
