Schedel, Hartmann; Wolgemuth, Michel and Pleydenwurff, Wilhelm (ills)
Germany: Anton Koberger, 1494. First edition. Good + overall. This work by Schedel [1440-1514] is an illustrated world history which is based on the Bible, which follows the story of human history related in the Bible and includes the histories of a number of important Western cities. Written in German by Hartmann Schedel it appeared in 1493. It is a well documented incunabulum, one of the first to successfully combine illustrations and text. This epic history divides human history into 7 ages. Published and printed by Anton Koberger, the godfather of Albrecht Durer and the most successful German publisher of his day. The woodcut illustrations were made in the workshop of Michael Wolgemut [1434 - 1519], with an unpredcedented number of 1,809 illustrations. These woodblocks include views of cities and towns, battles, kings, and saints. Some images represent actual cities, and other images are purely imaginative. This print adjoins with Plate No. CLXXXIIII and together describes the German Electoral College. This plate shows images of the towns and shields of Salzburg, Constance, Ulma, Hagenau, Aquisgranum. The verso describes Popes John XVIII "came to the pontificate through neglectfulness; and he did nothing memorable", Sergius IV, Benedict VIII, John XIX, and Benedict IXX. Approximately 11.75 x 16.5", b & w, cropped very close on left side, a discoloration at center of image, bottom and long edge dusty, otherwise good.

SENECA, SENEQUE
Paris, [Pierre Le Dru] pour, Claude Jaumar, 27 Mars 1494/1495. ____ Edition très rare. Très peu d'exemplaires de cet incunable sont conservés dans les bibliothèques. 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. Cette édition a été ainsi partagée entre Claude Jaumar et Durand Gerlier. En fin d'ouvrage on trouve les "Lettres à Paul" et une table des matières. Colophon : "Explicit epistole morales Senece. Impresse Parisius pro Claudio Jammar (sic) librario comorante in vico sancti Jacobi ante coronam aureas Anno dmi mllllxciiii. Die vicesima septima mensis Martii." Ex-libris manuscrit sur le titre de l'époque d'Antonio Pasturelli : "Pertinent domino Antonio Pasturelli & Choquet, Incorporato et (??). A. Pasturelli." Quelques marginaliae à la plume, rares rousseurs. Très bon exemplaire, grand de marges. Goff S381. ISTC : is00381000. GW M41281. ***** Very rare edition. Only one copy in UK (Aberdeen), two copies in America (Collection of Phyllis and John Gordan and Library of Congress), four in France, none in Belgium. This edition of "Letters" by Seneca was for the use of students, typography is very elegant and lines are well spaced.

BOCCACCIO, Giovanni [BOCCACE]
Paris, Antoine Vérard, 4 Novembre 1494. ____ 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). Colophon : "Cy finist le neufviesme & dernier livre de Jehan Boccace Des nobles hômes et fêmes infortunez translate de lati(n) en frâcois Imprime nouvellemt a paris le quatriesme jour de novembre mil iiiic quatre vingtz et xiiii par âthoine verad libraire demourant sur le pont nostre Dame à lymage sainct jehan levangeliste ou au palaiz devât la chappelle ou on chant … [Click Below for Full Description]
