PIRCKHEIMER, Willibald.
1494. 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.

BRANT, Sebastiaen.
Belg. Typogr. I, 388; BKVK & WorldCat (3 copies); Rosenwald Coll. 1206; USTC 402039 (5 copies); not in Adams; Bibl. Belg. Rare first edition of Jan II van Ghelen's Dutch translation of Sebastian Brant's famous Ship of fools , a telling satire on the foolishness of men. The book really is a picture book, each act of folly depicted in a large woodcut in which the fool with cap and bells plays the main role, the text explaining the woodcut and its moral. It first appeared in German in 1494, in Latin in 1497, and went through hundreds of editions in many languages, as well as spin-offs of various kinds, including a song by The Grateful Dead in 1974. A Dutch translation appeared in Paris in 1500 and a few more in the following decades, including one at Antwerp in 1548, but the present edition was far more influential and was long even cited as the first.Sebastian Brandt (1457-1521) is famous largely for this verse satire, in which more than a hundred fools set sail in search of a fool's paradise. Each humourously satirizes one particular vice or folly of Brant's day, sparing neither clergy nor scholars, and each fool meets his death in an appropriate manner. Columbus's discovery of America, made only 2 years before the first edition, earns a brief mention. Brant satirizes men and women in all walks of life and engaged in various activities, so the woodcuts add not only humour and beauty, but also a view of historical clothing, implements and customs.Lower outside corner of title-page restored and a few leaves slightly browned, but still in very good condition. The binding is wor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Botanik
Nissen, BBI 1494.- Nr. 31/32.- Crispin de Passe der Jüngere, auch Crispyn II. (* 1593/94 in Köln; ? nach 6. Januar 1670 in Amsterdam) aus der flämisch-niederländischen Familie von Kupferstechern und Verlegern.- # The Hortus Floridus is widely known as a masterpiece and takes up an important place within the botanical iconography. The compiler of the Hortus Floridus, Crispijn van de Passe junior (1589-1670) came from a family of well-known draughtsmen and engravers. Van de Passe spent a part of his life in Utrecht. He drew and engraved the largest part of the copperplates; but his father Crispijn senior (ca. 1565-1637) and his brothers Simon (1595-1647) and Willem (1598-ca. 1637) also contributed to the book.

Johannes Parreut:
Nürnberg Friedrich Creussner 29 Mai Type 4 und 5, 1494. Einspaltiges Original-Inkunabelblatt (14,5 x 20,7 cm). Signatur p iiii. Blatt mit mehreren kleinen Wurmlöchern. Incunabula text leaf. "Im Gegensatz zu Anton Koberger, mit dem er seit 1472 wetteifernd, wenn auch in wesentlich bescheidenerem Umfange, in Nürnberg tätig ist, hat Friedrich Creussner in allen seinen Drucken einen deutschen, man kann fast sagen, einen fränkischen Stil festgehalten, während Koberger fast immer internationalen Anregungen nachgegeben, und damit auf eine selbständige Einwirkung auf die Gestaltung der Druckschriften Verzicht geleistet hat. . Diese Typen (Creussners) sind die Urahnen einer weitverbreiteten Familie, der wir noch bei einer ganzen Reihe von Druckern wieder begegnen." (Haebler 1927, S. 52f).

Augsburg Johann Schönsperger 17 Juli Typen 2 und 4 1494 - Zweipaltiges, 43-zeiliges O-Inkunabelblatt mit zwei kolorierten Holzschnitten der Heiligen Klara und dem Heiligen Tiburtius (6 x 8,3 cm). Blatt etwas fingerfleckig und im unteren Blattrand zwei Rissen. Blattgröße: 16 x 25,5 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Sehr rares Blatt aus der "Legenda Aurea", dem Heiligenleben des Jacobus de Voragine! Der italienische Dominikaner-Prediger und Schriftsteller Jacobus de Voragine (Viraggio) aus dem heutigen Varazze bei Genua lebte von 1230-1298. Jacobus de Voragine fügte aus Bibeltexten, den Apokryphen, verschiedenen Akten sowie überlieferten Geschichten, die Lebensgeschichten der Heiligen zur "Legenda Aurea" zusammen. Das Werk in volkstümlicher, lateinischer Sprache geschrieben, wurde zum populärsten religiösen Volksbuch des Mittelalters. Die deutsche Übersetzung der "Legenda Aurea" wurde das "Leben der Heiligen" oder der "Heiligen Leben" genannt. Zahlreiche Anzeichen deuten heute darauf hin, dass zwischen 1384 und 1421 im Umkreis des Dominikanerordens in Nürnberg eine neue Kompilation der Heiligenlegenden entstand, die unter Einbeziehung der "Legenda aurea" stärker auf den deutschsprachigen Glaubensraum bezogen war. So wurden in diesem Legendar u. a. die Heiligen Bonifazius, Gallus, Kilian oder Magnus von Füssen aufgenommen. Dieser "deutsche Legendar" übertraf in seiner Verbreitung die "Legenda Aurea".
