Schedel, Hartmann; Wolgemuth, Michel and Pleydenwurff, Wilhelm (ills)
Germany: Anton Koberger, 1494. First edition. Very good condition. 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 Latin 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 seven 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 (second stage of the world) is of Ninive - (Nineveh) showing a fortified medieval city. The entrance to the city has a statue of a king holding a scepter in his right hand. A castle like structure is at the top of a hill at left, mirrored by a church with dome on the right. Verso has a family tree beginning with Nehor and Melcha. Crisp images, approximately 12 x 17", b & w, faint tide mark on left border, not affecting image, two small fox spots in margin.

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."

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]

TRITHEMIUS (or TRITHEIM), Johannes
1494. 148 leaves, including the final blank), Roman letter (except for the two-line title in gothic type), 51 lines & headline, capital spaces with guide letters. Folio (290 x 188 mm.), late 17th-cent. panelled English speckled calf (rebacked with the orig. spine laid-down, minor staining to a few leaves in blank upper margins). Basel: J. Amerbach, 1494. First edition of the "first bibliography to be compiled as a practical work of reference."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 7. Tritheim (1462-1516), one of the leading polymaths of his age, was appointed the 25th abbot of the monastery at Sponheim in 1483. "One of the first of his many self-imposed tasks was the reorganization and cataloguing of the monastic library, if one can call reorganization the process of transforming forty-eight mongrel volumes into a splendid collection of 2,000 printed books and manuscripts, many of great importance and rarity... "It was during the progress of this work, no doubt, as his exceptional knowledge of books caused inquiries frequently to be addressed to him, that he conceived the notion of compiling a new and ambitious bibliography of ecclesiastical writers. He began work in 1487, and by the spring of 1492 he was able to send the complete manuscript to the bishop of Worms. He then revised it, and in 1494 the Liber de scriptoribus ecclesiasticis, a folio of nearly 300 pages, issued from the Basle press of Johann Amerbach... "From Alexander, bishop of Cappadocia, down to himself, Tritheim sets out in chronological order nearly a thousand writers, largely but not exclusively … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sachs, Hans, Adelbert von Keller (Hrsg.) und Edmund Goetze (Hrsg.)
8 (17,5 - 22,5 cm). Orig.-Leinenbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf braunen -schildern. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. Hans Sachs (1494-1576) war ein Nürnberger Spruchdichter, Meistersinger und Dramatiker. Vor allem seine Tätigkeit als Meistersinger machte ihn bei seinen Zeitgenossen bekannt. "Bis 1567 verfaßte er nahezu 4300 Meisterlieder, etwa die Hälfte davon geistliche. [...] Die Produktion von fast 130 Komödien und Tragödien begann 1527 mit dem Trauerspiel Lucretia, das in Kürze und Gestaltung dem Fastnachtspiel ähnlich ist und eines von deren zentralen Themen, Geschlechterverhältnis und Sexualmoral, aufgreift. Im Anschluß an die etwa gleichzeitig aufkommenden lateinischen Schuldramen erhielten die Schauspiele später Akteinteilung und deutlichere szenische Gliederung. Doch bleiben zwischen dramatisch durchgestalteten Szenen Elemente eines Erzählens mit verteilten Rollen, Zeitsprünge werden in Kauf genommen. Wie bei vielen protestantischen Dramatikern der Zeit galt Sach's Augenmerk biblischen, v. a. alttestamentlichen Stoffen. [...] Während die Meisterlieder nur handschriftlich weitergegeben wurden, konnten die übrigen Texte als Einzeldrucke verbreitet werden. Die Masse dieser Texte wurde allerdings erst allgemein zugänglich, seit 1558-79 fünf Bände der Nürnberger Folio-Ausgabe erschienen, die ersten drei in mehreren Auflagen. [...] Bei seinem Tod war Sachs in ganz Deutschland berühmt, in der Barockzeit dagegen verpönt. Wieland, Goethe und die Romantiker entdeckten ihn neu."

Louis XII, King of France (1462-1515).
1494. Large oblong 8vo. ¾ p. With address. Written as Duc d'Orleans to the Duc de Bar, thanking him and giving him instructions: "[...] delivrer et mettre hors de gallere par force Jean Lucas [...] Vueillez escripre a voz gens et officiers de pardeca Que Ilz vueillent mettre a pleine delivrance led[it] Jehan Lucas Et vous me ferez plaisir tres grant [...]". - Counter-signed by Jean Coterau, treasurer to Louis XI, Charles VIII, and Louis XII. One day previously, the army of King Charles VIII of France had crossed Mont Ginèvre and thus started the French army's first Italian campaign for the Kingdom of Naples, marking the beginning of the Italian wars, which were to last until 1559. Charles had detached Louis with an army of 10,000 men which were to support the efforts of the fleet. The French fleet defeated the Neapolitans, and on Sept. 8, four days after the writing of the present letter, the Duke achieved a decisive victory over the Neapolitan troops, which had landed at Rapallo east of Genoa. - Some brownstaining and with insignificant paper defects, some touching the signatures. Traces of a seal; slight edge damage.

BRONCKHORST, Jan van (Johann NOVIOMAGUS).
Ad 1: Smith, Rara arithmetica, p. 197; Typ. Batava 827 (1 copy); WorldCat (same copy); ad 2: Bierens de Haan 4389; STCN (8 copies); ad 3: Bierens de Haan 4148; STCN (7 copies). Second recorded copy of the fourth edition, the first published in the Netherlands, of a pioneering work on number systems and arithmetic. It discusses Roman numerals, Greek numerals (which use the letters of the alphabet), our modern Hindoo-Arabic numerals, a finger notation (with a full-page woodcut) and a supposed Chaldean (Syriac-Aramaic) system of linear symbols. It also describes and illustrates the use of an abacus. Jan van Bronckhorst (1494-1570), born in Nijmegen and therefore known as Johann Noviomagus, studied at Rostok and became Rector of the famous Latin school at Deventer. He probably arranged for the printing of the present Deventer edition for use at his own school.Bound with it are first editions of two early 17th-century works on numbers, especially on ancient monetary systems, both printed and published by Plantin's grandsons in Leiden. Snellius (1580-1626) professor of mathematics at Leiden, discusses the weights and values of coins of Greek, Roman and biblical antiquity. Scaliger, the leading scholar of his day, helped to break out of the traditional view of antiquity that centred on Greek and Roman classical civilizations. He never published his present work on ancient Greek and Roman monetary systems, so Snellius saw it through the press after his death.Very good copies, with corners torn off two leaves in the Bronckhorst, not approaching the text.

Strabo
Venice, Giovanni Rosso, 24 April 1494. Super-chancery 2° (314 x 209mm). Roman and Greek types, initial spaces. Late 18th-century vellum, flat spine titled in gilt. Fine copy. Small neat marginal tear to bottom of last leaf, single wormhole to last two gatherings, very light soiling. The Geographia “marked the first attempt to assemble all available geographical knowledge into a single treatise” (DSB). Third Venetian edition of the Geography, Strabo’s only surviving work: a geographical encyclopaedia of the known world. In book 5 Strabo recognises that the land of Vesuvius and Aetna share the same ashy soil suitable for vines: “Above these places lies Mt. Vesuvius, which, save for its summit, has dwellings all round, on farm-lands that are absolutely beautiful. As for the summit, a considerable part of it is flat, but all of it is unfruitful, and looks ash-coloured, and it shows pore-like cavities in masses of rock that are soot-coloured on the surface, these masses of rock looking as though they had been eaten out by fire; and hence one might infer that in earlier times this district was on fire and had craters of fire, and then, because the fuel gave out, was quenched. Perhaps, too, this is the cause of the fruitfulness of the country all round the mountain; just as at Catania, it is said, that part of the country which had been covered with ash-dust from the hot ashes carried up into the air by the fire of Aetna made the land suited to the vine”.

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".
