         Prima etas mundi ab Ada.

      Artist: Schedel Hartman ca ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca1495 - - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Tears on lower margin perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 38 x 22; - description: Presentation of Eve, being created by God from Adam?s side, from the famous and riche illustrated Incunable: "Nuremberg Chronicle"; - vita of the artist: Hartmann Schedel (1440 -1515)settled in Nuremberg 1484. He published the famous Nuremberg Chronicle 1493, Schedel's library has been sold in 1552 to Hans Jacob Fugger. Schedel's Nuremberg Chronicle must have been one of the most popular of incunables, judging by the number of surviving copies. Some 800 copies of the Latin edition have been traced and 400 of the German. This is not surprising considering that this compilation of sacred and profaned history was the most elaborate printed book of its time, illustrated with more than 1800 woodcuts. Among these were a number of double-page city views, a folding map of the world and another of northern and central Europe. The text is an amalgam of legend, fancy and tradition interspersed with the occasional scientific fact or authentic piece of modern learning. Hartmann Schedel, a physician of Nuremberg, was the editor-in-chief; the printer was Anton Koberger, and among the designers the most famous were Michael Wolgemut and Hanns Pleydenwurff, masters of the Nuremberg workshop where Albrecht Durer served his apprenticeship. The first edition of the Nuremberg Chronicle in July 1493 was in Latin and there was a reprint with German text in December of the same year. World Map:His Ptolemaic world map with the figures simbolizing the three sons of Noah's: Sem, Ham and Jafet. The world map was included in the Chronicle of the Nuremberg physician, Hartmann Schedel to demonstrate the world after the Deluge. The hundreds of the woodcuts used for printing the illustrations of the famous German work were cut by Wolgemut and Pleydenwurff. The young Albrecht Dürer could contributed to the book as he apprenticed the Nuremberg printers.The panel to the left side, showing the monstrous races, is an illustration of the tales, fables and antique works, first of all Pliny the elder. Note that this panel is the best identification mark of our edition, there was another panel with the map of the 1493 edition.

         Quadragesimale de filio prodigo

      Basel: Michael Furter, 1495. Median 8vo (168 x 112 mm). 224 leaves (of 232, lacking table at end, as often). Gothic types. Double column, 34 lines (variable) and headline, initial spaces. 18 woodcuts printed from 16 blocks, woodcut device (Weil 45). 4- and 3-line initial spaces, some with printed guide-letters. Initials supplied in red and blue. Contemporary blind-tooled pigskin, one catch. Lacking clasp; some mostly marginal worming at beginning and end catching some letters, some occasional pale soiling. Provenance: 1590 ownership and presentation inscription by Hieronymus Komerstad; Wilhering/Oberösterreich Abbey (inkstamp SIGILLUM HILARIAE W title); Ernst Anspach; purchased from William Schatzki, 1963. FIRST EDITION of one of the most important illustrated incunabula printed in Basel following the publication of Sebastian Brant's Narrenschiff (1494) illustrated by Albrecht Dürer. The Franciscan Johann Meder resided in Basel from 1495 to 1502, and was a friend of Sebastian Brant, who provided a prefatory poem for this collection of Lenten sermons. He was closely involved in the printing of his work and requested that Furter include illustrations. The quaint, angular woodcuts done in a vernacular style are attributed by Friedrich Winkler to the Master of Haintz-Narr, Dürer's main collaborator in the illustration of Brant's Narrenschiff (Basel: Bergmann de Olpe, 1494, GW 5041 and later editions; see F. Winkler, Dürer und die Illustrationen zum Narrenschiff, Berlin 1951, p. 92). Each of the fifty sermons opens with a dialogue between an angel and the prodigal son; nearly all conclude with a parable or allegory that Meder explains in Christian terms. HC 13628*; Goff M-421; BMC III 783 (IA. 37781); Kaufmann & Nabholz II 635; Schreiber 4604; Schramm XXII, p. 43. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

         Quadragesimale Gritsch una cum registro sermonum de tempore et de sanctis per circulum anni

      Venice: Lazarus de Suardis, 1495. Paperback. Very Good . Venice: Lazarus de Suardis, 21 March 1495. 8vo (173 x 116 mm). [284] leaves. Collation: 1-8(4), a-H (in 34 gatherings of 4). Woodblock monogram printer’s device on colophon leaf. 48 lines, double column, Gothic type, with printed guide letters. Stamp of the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary Library (deaccessioned) and two library shelfmarks pasted in “Q83” and “K30.” Contemporary limp vellum; (lightly soiled with some dampstains, backstrip partly perished with partial ms. title and light edgewear; lower outer corner of l5 and D2 torn affecting a few words, but in remarkable shape given its extensive use; cloth folding case). Title extensively inscribed in Latin with two columns of a subject index for sermons. The annotator was interested in indexing themes like heaven (paradisus) and hell (infernus), or Virgin Mary and Evangelists, and easily being able to locate sermons for certain medieval virtues and vices or sins, like luxury, patience, love, anger, and justice. Early biographical inscriptions on rear blank date to probably to the mid-sixteenth century and “venetis” gives this book a probable Venice home at one point. There are further scattered annotations notes and references to the index, which reflect on sermons of interest. This book likely once belonged to preaching Franciscan monk from northern Italy. This monastic association is further evident with an ownership inscription in the lower margin of a1, “Iste Liber est fratus d(omin)ici.” Preaching was most closely associated with the Franciscans who also traveled extensively to reach audiences. The compact octavo format and lightweight wrappers of this volume would have made transportability much easier. Incunable edition of Johannes Gritsch’s register of medieval sermons called the “Quadragesimale” with an interesting period index of subjects probably added by a Franciscan scribe. Johannes Gritsch of Basel, himself a Franciscan monk, delivered his sermons in German and translated them in simple Latin, ready for translation and adaptation to the vernacular. He used scriptural passages, supporting texts from classics and fables, and exemplary stories to prove moral grounds. Two main themes have been recognized to dominate the medieval sermon: the awareness of death and the need for contrition. Preachers would have relentlessly implored their audience to come to repentance. “Brother Dominic,” the early modern friar who heavily used this book, was no exception. He leaves evidence of his moral preaching interests throughout the book. The preliminary subject index is an invaluable glimpse into a composing preacher’s mindset at the dawn of the sixteenth century. This is the twenty-first edition of Gritsch’s Quadrigesimale, which included fifty numbered sermons and additional sermons for specific church feasts; the first appeared in 1468 and a succession of printings appeared well into the sixteenth century. In fact, a Lyons edition of the "Quadragesimale" was produced just one month later after this one in 1495 by Joannes Treschel. Printed sermon compilations were especially popular in monastic communities where volumes of model sermons would have enjoyed wide circulation. ISTC ig00506000.

Duffs type 4 throughout, woodcut initials, printed music to leaf n5 recto, Higden's discussion of the work of Pythagoras provides the occasion for the printing of a musical example in the present edition, making this also the first English book to contain printed music. Chancery folio (256 x 178 mm.), in later full red calf, the panelled spine lettered in gilt between tall raised bands, bookplate of the family of Edward Norris. 220 (of 398) leaves, wanting those before fl, leaves gl and g8, and all after K1. A rare survival and substantial fragment, the leaves of gatherings f and g mounted at inner margin, with some additional small repairs, affecting small portions of text on 10 leaves, numerous other leaves (gatherings A1-1-18) neatly mounted at inner edges, a few minor tears and repairs elsewhere, light dampstaining and thumbing, heaviest to early leaves, the word 'Pope' and its contractions deleted throughout in sixteenth-century manuscript. Numerous early annotations, including the inscription (in two places) of Robert Crystyn. AN IMPORTANT EDITION OF THE POLYCRONICON, the most influential universal chronicle distributed in Britain during the 14th and 15th centuries AND The first English book to contain printed music. This is the second edition of the Polycronicon in English and was printed by Wynkyn de Worde. Caxton had died in 1491, at which time his workshop, types and printer's device were taken over by his foreman de Worde. The Polychronicon, first printed by Caxton in 1482, was composed by the fourteenth-century Higden, a Benedictine monk of St Werberg's, Chester, and was widely circulated in manuscript. Its longevity was secured by John Trevisa, who translated it into English in 1387, and it is Trevisa's text which is reproduced in Caxton and de Worde's editions.

Charles promised him a truly royal, appointed him his court mathematician, and made him a Reichsritter (a Free Imperial Knight) and in 1544 even an Imperial Count Palatine. All this furthered Apian's reputation as an eminent scientist. Apian's work included in mathematics?in 1527 he published a variation of Pascal's triangle, and in 1534 a table of sines? as well as astronomy. In 1531, he observed a comet and discovered that a comet's tail always point away from the sun. (Girolamo Fracastoro also detected this in 1531, but Apian's publication was the first to also include graphics.) He designed sundials, published manuals for astronomical instruments and crafted volvelles (Apian wheels), measuring instruments useful for calculating time and distance for astronomical and astrological applications.Apian was followed by his son Philipp (1531?1589), who, in addition to his own research, preserved the legacy of his father.

         Illuminated leaf from a Book of Hours.

      Paris or Rouen: circa, 1495. Illuminated leaf, 215 x 152 mm., with a panel border on both sides of the leaf composed of blue and gold acanthus leaves and coloured flowers and leaves on diagonal grounds of liquid gold, illuminated initials in white tracery on pink grounds, and numerous 1-line initials in gold alternately on red and blue grounds, naturalistic branch line fillers; 27 lines of text in gothic script. A beautifully illuminated leaf from a luxurious fifteenth-century French Book of Hours. This leaf is from the shorter version of the central text of the Book of Hours, modelled on the Divine Office and performed at the eight canonical hours of the day and which was called the "Little Office of the Blessed Virgin" (or Hours of the Virgin).The panel border on each side of the leaf is composed of fields of blue and gold acanthus leaves interspersed with mauve, red, blue and white flowers on zig-zag grounds of liquid gold. Additionally, there are four 2-line initials in white on pink grounds; five 1-line initials in liquid gold on blue or red and four line-fillers in similar colours.The delicate initials are typical of the work executed in Paris or Rouen; in tandem with the generous application of liquid gold in the margins, it places this work as hailing from the late fifteenth century.

         I Senatori

      1495. Bulino, circa 1495. Della serie I Trionfi di Cesare. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, comunque databile ai primi anni del XVI secolo, irregolarmente rifilata alla linea marginale, minimi restauri perfettamente eseguiti, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. I Trionfi di Cesare, dipinti da Andrea Mantenga su nove grandi pannelli tra il 1480 ed il 1492, descrivono la tipica processione militare dei Romani, soggetto tornato molto in auge nel Rinascimento. Il tema è probabilmente ispirato dal testo di Roberto Valturio, De Re Militari, edito a Verona nel 1472 e dalla descrizione del Trionfo di Scipione di Andrea Appian . Nel 1492 due dei pannelli risultano ancora mancare e sembra che il Mantegna non ebbe mai modo di completare il lavoro. Nel 1506 furono collocati nel palazzo vicino Porta Pusterla in Mantova, tra alcuni pilastri; nel 1629 furono acquistati da Carlo I ed ora si trovano ad Hampton Court. I pannelli del Mantegna furono l'ispirazione, probabilmente con suggerimento dello stesso Maestro, di sette incisioni contemporanee realizzate dai suoi allievi. I Senatori riproduce uno dei pannelli mai realizzati dal Mantegna ed è pertanto ispirato da disegni preparatori al soggetto. Dell'opera esistono due versioni, una copia dell'altra. Questa variante è, per motivi stilistici, attribuita a quello che viene denominato Primo Incisore, un collaboratore di Andrea Mantegna, autore di numerose opere a stampa. Bibliografia: Bartsch 11; The Illustrated Bartsch 019; Hind p.24, 16. Dimensioni 265x285.

      [Japan 19th century]. Hand scroll, silk brocade outer cloth,. ribbon tie, ivory clip, painted on fine hand-made paper some. with crushed mica powder, giving a sparkling look, very long. 27.5 x 6m.48 cm. length,very good, clean,22 color paintings.. A most charming and lovely Nanga school painted long scroll. The work shows the more tropical looking foliage of South China. The work is entirely devoted to Chinese beautiful women of the Ming dynasty. This work was done after the painted hand-scroll work done by the most celebrated Qiu Ying [1495-1522]. * THE SUBJECT/SCENES: It contains some twenty-two scenes depicting the most celebrated beauties of Chinese history. Each is delicately painted in pastels, with a steady and fine hand in very thin outline. The surrounding scenery is beautifully executed in much detail, as are the architectural accommodations. Each painting is preceded by the name of the lady, and a brief comment about her charms and celebrity. Each is clad the most stunning and beautiful garments, elaborate coiffeur, some hold various kinds of fans, One lady plays a long-thin flute while serenading a Phoenix. Another sits while playing her lute while a white crane observes, others draw and paint scrolls or screens, some write in books, Lovely altars are depicted with small Buddhist statues, Chinese books and other scholar's desk articles. One shows a most pious lady saying her prayers while on a lovely mat with a censor adjacent. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Andrew Pekarik: THE THIRTY-SIX IMMORTAL WOMEN POETS. Our item seems to be related to this, in that it reflects a common theme and bond. While the Japanese emulated much of Chinese culture and traditions, this book offers a good example of what and how the Japanese thought of such works as the Qiu Ying scroll. * Ho, Wai-Kam et al: EIGHT DYNASTIES OF CHINESE PAINTING: The Collections of the Nelson-Atkins Museum, Kansas City and The Cleveland Museum of Art. illustrations164, 165, 166 and the index for this artist, p.386 2nd entry from the bottom. * Color scans can be sent by email.

         Polycarpi et Ignatii epistolae: una cum vetere vulgata interpretatione Latina, ex trium manuscriptorum codicum collatione, integritati suae restituta. Accessit & Ignatianarum epistolarum versio antiqua alia, ex duobus manuscriptis in Anglia repertis, nunc primum in lucem edita. Quibus praefixa est, non de Ignatii solum & Polycarpi scriptis, sed etiam de apostolicis constitutionibus & canonibus Clementi Romano tributis.

      Controversies have stages and the Ignatian Controversy had three. In the period from the first printing of the Ignatian letters (1495) till 1644, the Longer Greek recension was all that was known and it was accepted despite early awareness of some spurious aspects. => The second stage began with the publication of the present work in which Bishop Ussher printed the letters based on the Shorter Greek recension as found in Latin manuscripts in Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and in the private collection of Robert Montagu -- the Greek text for which was soon found and published two years later. The final stage came in 1845 with the discovery of the Syrian ?extract.? The texts of the Epistles of Polycarp and Ignatius are here presented in parallel columns, in the Greek of the Longer recension and in Robert Grosseteste's mid-13th-century Latin translation. Ignatius' Greek text is printed in red and black; red for words and passages not appearing in the Latin version reproduced on pp. 195-238, and, in the "Emendanda," for words and passages not appearing in the Greek text on pp. 239-41. Besides editing and translating the letters, Irish-born Ussher provides notes and an essay, ?De Ignatii Martyris Epistolis, indeque . . . de Polycarpi quoque scriptis, atque Apostolicis Constitutionibus et Canonibus Clementi Romano tributis,? at the end of the volume.The ESTC record indicates that a portion of this work was salvaged from an edition of Ignatii, Polycarpi, et Barnabæ, epistolae atq[ue], martyria quibus praefixa est de Polycarpi & Ignatii scriptis Jacobi Usserii archiepiscopi armachani dissertatio: quae in hoc volumine continentur alia, operi praefixa synopsis indicabit that was accidentally burnt while being printed by Lichfield in 1642. Provenance: 17th- or 18th-century ownership signatures of "Will. Young" and of "John Dearle." In early 19th century given to Kenyon College by John Foster of Hertfordshire; in the 20th century in the library of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School (properly deaccessioned).

First Collected Edition of the sermons of St. Augustine, published in 7 volumes, consisting of parts 6 and 7 complete (Sermones de tempore and Sermones de sanctis) within a larger collection of sermons by Augustine (including Ad heremitas, De verbis domini, De verbis apostolici, In epistolam Johannis). There are a considerable number of humanistic manuscripts of Augustine, and among the early printed editions there are many which were the labor of humanistic scholars. Johannes Amerbach, the famed humanist printer, was the first of these to print Augustine?'s Sermones and notably, the humanist poet Sebastian Brant of Basel (1457?-1521), added a Latin poem of praise to this edition. There are several copies in North American and European institutions, this one closely matching the copy in the Arca Artium Collection at the Hill Manuscript Library.

         Quadragesimale Gritsch una cum registro sermonum de tempore et de sanctis per circulum anni

      Venice: Lazarus de Suardis, 1495. Paperback. Very Good . Venice: Lazarus de Suardis, 21 March 1495. 8vo (173 x 116 mm). [284] leaves. Collation: 1-8(4), a-H (in 34 gatherings of 4). Woodblock monogram printer?'s device on colophon leaf. 48 lines, double column, Gothic type, with printed guide letters. Stamp of the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary Library (deaccessioned) and two library shelfmarks pasted in ?"Q83?" and ?"K30.?" Contemporary limp vellum; (lightly soiled with some dampstains, backstrip partly perished with partial ms. title and light edgewear; lower outer corner of l5 and D2 torn affecting a few words, but in remarkable shape given its extensive use; cloth folding case). Title extensively inscribed in Latin with two columns of a subject index for sermons. The annotator was interested in indexing themes like heaven (paradisus) and hell (infernus), or Virgin Mary and Evangelists, and easily being able to locate sermons for certain medieval virtues and vices or sins, like luxury, patience, love, anger, and justice. Early biographical inscriptions on rear blank date to probably to the mid-sixteenth century and ?"venetis?" gives this book a probable Venice home at one point. There are further scattered annotations notes and references to the index, which reflect on sermons of interest. This book likely once belonged to preaching Franciscan monk from northern Italy. This monastic association is further evident with an ownership inscription in the lower margin of a1, ?"Iste Liber est fratus d(omin)ici.?" Preaching was most closely associated with the Franciscans who also traveled extensively to reach audiences. The compact octavo format and lightweight wrappers of this volume would have made transportability much easier. Incunable edition of Johannes Gritsch?'s register of medieval sermons called the ?"Quadragesimale?" with an interesting period index of subjects probably added by a Franciscan scribe. Johannes Gritsch of Basel, himself a Franciscan monk, delivered his sermons in German and translated them in simple Latin, ready for translation and adaptation to the vernacular. He used scriptural passages, supporting texts from classics and fables, and exemplary stories to prove moral grounds. Two main themes have been recognized to dominate the medieval sermon: the awareness of death and the need for contrition. Preachers would have relentlessly implored their audience to come to repentance. ?"Brother Dominic,?" the early modern friar who heavily used this book, was no exception. He leaves evidence of his moral preaching interests throughout the book. The preliminary subject index is an invaluable glimpse into a composing preacher?'s mindset at the dawn of the sixteenth century. This is the twenty-first edition of Gritsch?'s Quadrigesimale, which included fifty numbered sermons and additional sermons for specific church feasts; the first appeared in 1468 and a succession of printings appeared well into the sixteenth century. In fact, a Lyons edition of the "Quadragesimale" was produced just one month later after this one in 1495 by Joannes Treschel. Printed sermon compilations were especially popular in monastic communities where volumes of model sermons would have enjoyed wide circulation. ISTC ig00506000. Incunable edition of Johannes Gritsch?'s register of medieval sermons called the ?"Quadragesimale?" with an interesting period index of subjects probably added by a Franciscan scribe. Johannes Gritsch of Basel, himself a Franciscan monk, delivered his sermons in German and translated them in simple Latin, ready for translation and adaptation to the vernacular. He used scriptural passages, supporting texts from classics and fables, and exemplary stories to prove moral grounds. Two main themes have been recognized to dominate the medieval sermon: the awareness of death and the need for contrition. Preachers would have relentlessly implored their audience to come to repentance. ?"Brother Dominic,?" the early modern friar who heavily used this book, was no exception. He leaves evidence of his moral preaching interests throughout the book. The preliminary subject index is an invaluable glimpse into a composing preacher?'s mindset at the dawn of the sixteenth century.

         QUADRAGESIMALE NOVUM DE FILIO PRODIGO

      Basel: Michael Furter, 1495. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. An Illustrated Incunable from the Library of a Leading Bibliographer of Incunabula. 165 x 115 mm (6 1/2 x 4 1/2"). 232 unnumbered leaves, including the terminal blank, single and (mostly) double column, 28 and (mostly) 34 lines and headline, gothic type. FIRST EDITION. VERY FINE BROWN JANSENIST CRUSHED MOROCCO BY ROBERT JOLY, raised bands, covers WITH GILT ROYAL ARMORIAL DEVICE OF ANDRÉ MASSENA, Duke of Rivoli and Prince of Essling, and spine compartments with his cipher, turn-ins with dense gilt decoration, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Attractively rubricated throughout, with two- and three-line initials alternately in red, woodcut printer's device on colophon, and 18 VERY APPEALING FULL-PAGE WOODCUT ILLUSTRATIONS BY THE "MASTER OF HEINTZ NARR" (including two repeated images). The woodcut on K4 with a small area neatly painted in red, no doubt by an early hand. Goff M-421; BMC III, 783. A handful of leaves closely shaved at upper margin (though most margins quite ample), an occasional insignificant spot in the text, but AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, very clean, bright, and fresh internally, and in a lustrous, unworn binding. In a binding characterized by understated elegance and in outstanding condition, this is a very desirable copy of the first appearance of an incunabular collection of Lenten sermons on the parable of the prodigal son, held up here as encouragement to Christians never to despair of self-improvement and God's forgiveness. Each sermon begins with dialogue between an angel and the prodigal son, and all but one conclude with a parable or allegory that the author explains in Christian terms. Although he is a shadowy figure, we know that Meder, a Franciscan at Basel from 1495-1502, was intimately involved in the printing of this work and that he had his friend Sebastian Brant write a prefatory poem to the volume. He also asked Furter to provide illustrations, a request that was fulfilled by the inclusion of the quaint, angular woodcuts done in a vernacular style that are attributed by Friedrich Winkler to the Master of Haintz-Narr, Dürer's main collaborator in the illustration of Brant's famous "Das Narrenschiff." Michael Furter printed in Basel from the 1480s into the second decade of the 16th century, with many of his publications being undated. His typefaces are derivative, but he was important, as seen here, in terms of xylographic ornamentation and augmentation. Our aristocratic binding was done by one of the great bookbinding houses of France. After apprenticing in the provinces, Antoine Joly (1838-1917) moved to Paris, found employment with the celebrated Léon Gruel, later formed a partnership with Thibaron in 1874, succeeded him 11 years later, and, in 1892, turned the business over to his son Robert (1870?-1924). According to Duncan & DeBartha, "An excellent gilder like his father, Robert designed and produced a range of classical covers." Our original owner, André Prosper Massena, prince d'Essling, stands out among even the greatest of bibliographers because of his "Études sur l'Art de la Gravure sur Bois à Venise." As stated in the Martino reprint, "this monumental work is the most exhaustive bibliographic study of illustrated books of any country or period ever published." It collates, meticulously describes, and illustrates more than 3,500 books. Surely, in keeping with the fashion of 19th century bibliophilic expectations, the text here has been pressed, but it seems not to have been washed, and, in any case, it is very clean and fresh, with leaves that have plenty of texture. Our first edition is uncommonly seen: ABPC lists five copies at auction in 40 years, none in this century.
