1495. Xilografia, fine XV secolo. Buona prova di questa rarissima opera, impressa su carta vergata priva di filigrana, rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Alcuni segni della matrice, mancanti, sono corretti ad inchiostro antico. Apparentemente sconosciuta alle bibliografie. Timbro di collezione al verso. Dimensioni 125x170. Woodcut, end on the XV century. Good example of a very rare work, printed on laid paper without watermark, trimmed to the marginal line, in excellent condition. Some lacking signs of the plate have been added with ancient ink. Apparently unknown to the main bibliographies. Collection stamp on verso.

Primo Incisore (Attivo a Mantova tra la fine del XV e l'inizio del XVI secolo)
"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." The triumph of Caesar, with senators walking in procession in front of a loggia. Engraving, 1495 circa, without … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Antoine Vérard, 1495. Condition: Gut. Moderner Leder-Einband -- 375 (von 280) Seiten -- Folio [307 x 233 mm]. 275 (of 280) ll. (lacking title, g2, &4, &5 and last blank) With printers mark. Modern leather binding.FIRST EDITION of the first volume of the greatest and most famous chronicle of French and English medieval history. Jean Froissart (1338-C.1410) is the supreme annalist of medieval chivalry, historian, poet, traveller, friend of Chaucer, and by far the greatest and most entertaining source for our knowledge of the Hundred Years' War. His chronicle has provided the source for the dramatic and chivalrous period of warfare which, through the plays of Shakespeare, is part of the folk legend of Britain. It is as much a profane romance, as a history book. It is filled with delightful stories and adventures reported first-hand.Froissart was born in Valenciennes. At the age of 18, he came to England where he entered the service of Queen Philippa of Hainaut, acting as her secretar.

Venice: Theodorus de Ragazonibus de Asula, 4 September, Third edition largely printed from the second (Verona: Paulus Fridenperger, 28 September 1486= ISTC il00333000) but with the addition of the verses at end by C. Lycinius addressed to Nicolo Priuli, a member of the well-known patrician family, and son of Girolamo, who is described as 'bonarum artium cultor' and apparently founder of an academy at Murano dedicated to virtue and posterity whence the verses are written ('ex foelicissima tua murani Academia. datum'). The Priuli family owned property on Murano, and Nicolo was podestà of Rovereto in 1487 (See note in Bodleian p. 2796). Who Lycinius was, is not at all established but he wrote similar verses for a member of the Corner family which survive in ms, and some 'ad candidum lectorem' in Petrus Ravennas Phoenix seu de artificiosa memoria, Venice : Bernardinus de Choris, de Cremona, 10 Jan. 1491/92 (ISTC ip00531000) reprinted shortly afterwards in Bologna[Bazalerius de Bazaleriis, about 1492]. The first edition of the text was printed in Brescia by Thomas Ferrandus in [1473-74] and is known in four copies only (ISTC il00332900). This edition is known in many copies in libraries.

It is as much a profane romance, as a history book. It is filled with delightful stories and adventures reported first-hand. Froissart was born in Valenciennes. At the age of 18, he came to England where he entered the service of Queen Philippa of Hainaut, acting as her secretary and private diplomat. In 1366 he set off again on his long travels, settling for a time in the Duchy of Brabant. Much of his great chronicle was probably written in his home town of Valenciennes, and he continued it throughout his life up to the events that followed the murder of Richard II in 1399. Froissart is said to have died at Chimay. Froissart began writing Book I sometime after 1370, possibly at the request of Robert de Namur, to whom the earliest version was dedicated. It covers the period from 1322 to 1377, including the accession of Edward III, his campaign in Scotland and his marriage to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Primo Incisore (Attivo a Mantova tra la fine del XV e l'inizio del XVI secolo)
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.

MESUE, Johannes (Yuhannah ibn Masawaih).
Penultimate and most complete of the incunable editions, and the first to include (as listed on the title-page) the commentary of St. John de Armand on the Antidotarium of Nicolas of Salerno, together with his text, one of the most widely recogniszed pharmacopoeias of the Middle Ages. Also included is the Complementum practicae of Francescus Pedemontanus; a commentary on the Canones of Mesuë by Mundinus, Expositio super canones universales; the Expositio super Antidotarium Mesue by Christophorus de Honestis; the Additiones ad practicam of Petrus de Abano on tumours of the breast and diseases of the stomach and liver; and the Compendium aromatariorum of Saladinus of Ascoli, generally considered the first really modern pharmacopoeia."The Grabadin [here called the Antidotarium] of Mesuë junior was for centuries the authority on the composition of medicaments. The book was not only in use in practically every European pharmacy but in addition became the basis of the later official pharmacopoeias. The Grabadin is, as Sudhof calls it, 'the pharmacological quintessence of Arabian therapeutics' and contains the entire armamentarium of compounded medicines which we owe to the Arabians. The arrangement is like that of the later pharmacopoeias. The compounded medicines are divided into groups according to their forms -- confections, juleps, syrups, etc. -- the monographs containing directions for the preparation of the respective products and also notes on their medicinal uses" (Kremers & Urdang, History of Pharmacy, pp. 21-22).Klebs 680.14.

Melchiorre Sessa, 1495. In 8vo (mm. 149x97); legatura del XIX secolo in mezza pelle, dorso a nervetti con fregi e titolo in oro, piatti e risguardi in carta marmorizzata; cc. [36]. Segnatura: A-I4. Titolo entro bella cornice geometrica su fondo nero. Carattere corsivo. Colophon alla carta I4r. Carta I4v bianca. Piccola mancanza nel testo, abilmente restaurata, all'ultima carta, per il resto ottima copia. RARISSIMA QUARTA EDIZIONE della traduzione italiana. Juan de Flores fu uno degli autori spagnoli più letti in Europa prima di Cervantes. La sua fama è soprattutto legata al racconto di Grisel y Mirabella, che, composto sul finire del XV secolo e pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1495, venne ristampato circa sessanta volte in varie lingue fino alla fine del Cinquecento. Insieme al Cárcel de Amor e alla Celestina, la novella del Flores rappresenta l'unica altra opera spagnola del tempo ad aver avuto una diffusione comparabile a quelle dell'Orlando Furioso o del Decamerone. La novella, che costituisce un importante documento femminista, fu letta soprattutto dalle donne e divenne una sorta di manuale per l'istruzione di corte nelle lingue moderne. Essa, attraverso il racconto della tragica vicenda di due amanti perseguitati da un destino crudele e uccisi senza colpa da leggi disumane, entrò con prepotenza nel dibattito sui sessi e si pose al centro della difesa della superiorità della donna. Partendo dal dibattuto tema della colpa d'amore, se sia maggiore quella dell'uomo o quella della donna, Flores affronta anche argomenti più generali come l'eguaglianza delle donne davanti a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Incredible, complete incunable printing of Bruni's 'Familiar Letters' Leonardo Bruni was a 14th-century Italian man of letters who was an important leader in the early movements of Renaissance humanism. He collected a plethora of letters from notable 15th-century Italian figures which helped him earn the moniker of 'the first modern historian'. Bruni's 'Epistlae Familiars' was published in eight parts, each containing his correspondence with various humanists and politicians including the following: · Coluccio Salutati (1331 - 1406) · Poggio Bracciolini (1380 - 1459) · Niccolò de' Niccoli (1364 - 1437) · Francesco Barbaro (1390 - 1454) · Guarino Veronese (1374 - 1460) · Cosimo de' Medici (1389 - 1464) These letters, along with his more famous 'History of Florence', were among some of the greatest contributions to the revival of Greek and Latin classicism in 15th-century Italy. This incredibly rare, incunabula printing of Bruni's letter was published in 1495; however, this third edition is notable for being published in two different presses in Venice. According to various sources, leaf gatherings a-f1 were printed by Damianus de Mediolano and the remaining leaves were completed by Petri de Quarengiis. [Attributes: First Edition]

Albertus Magnus fu teologo, filosofo e santo; venerato nella Chiesa come "Doctor Universalis", protettore degli scienziati. Compì i suoi studi a Padova e insegnò successivamente in vari conventi; fu poi maestro di teologia a Parigi, dove ebbe come discepolo San Tommaso d'Aquino, e infine insegnò presso l'Università di Colonia. È considerato il più grande filosofo e teologo tedesco del Medioevo sia per la sua grande erudizione che per il suo impegno a livello logico-filosofico nel conciliare fede e ragione, applicando la filosofia aristotelica al pensiero cristiano.

Paratus; Kruttli, Johannes
(Martin Flach), 1495. Small 4to measuring 8" x 5". This is the complete first part of the work -- de tempore -- with 178 leaves. (The "de sanctis" portion would add 96 leaves, not present here.) Rubricated initials throughout and touched with red throughout as well. Binding is probably a 19th century rebinding with leather spine and corners, cream paper boards, the spine with three raised bands and handwritten title and printer, along with a "1498" date -- ISTC dates it to 1495-1500 (ip00099000). Some normal wear to the binding, interior end papers have some oxidizing, light marginal soiling throughout, some scattered dampstaining in the bottom margins, occasional marginalia, one leaf has a tear in the lower margin, another leaf has a marginal restoration, a bit of gutter dampstaining at the rear, but otherwise clean and unmarked, very handsome. 157 short sermons "de tempore." Interesting because the sermons are more like outlines than full sermons, providing the division of a sermon, some commentary, biblical and patristic authorities and a number of examples. A preacher could readily expand the material into a full sermon.This anonymous collection of sermons, known by the words that open the book, "Paratus is judicare vivos et mortuos ...", was extremely popular in the Middle Ages because of its "exempla", tools then indispensable to the argumentation of a medieval preacher. The Sermones include an exemplum in a which a confessor can do nothing for a demon who comes to confession because he is not contrite. (Sermon 2). Beautifully printed by Martin Flach (the elder … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARISTOTE & ÆGIDIUS ROMANUS
1495. In-folio (315 x 212 mm) de 134 ff.ch. imprimés sur deux colonnes ; demi-veau fauve sur ais estampé à froid (bordures végétales et croisillons), traces de fermoirs (reliure de l'époque). Troisième édition. Cette élégante impression vénitienne contient les commentaires d'Ægidius Romanus sur les Seconds Analytiques d'Aristote - publiés d'abord à Padoue par Petrus Maufer en 1478 -, ainsi que la traduction latine de ces derniers. Une seconde édition, imprimée comme celle-ci à Venise par Boneto Locatello pour Ottaviano Scoto, a vu le jour en 1488. Le philosophe et théologien augustinien Egidio Romano ou Ægidius Romanus (v. 1243-1316), en français Gilles de Rome, étudia avec Thomas d'Aquin à Paris, où il obtint en 1276 le grade de baccalarius sententiarius. Lors de la condamnation de l'aristotélisme prononcée en 1277 par Étienne Tempier, évêque de Paris, son enseignement fut suspendu et ses écrits censurés. Il quitta Paris et ne revint y enseigner la théologie qu'en 1285, après avoir rétracté une partie de ses thèses. Cet ouvrage, l'un des nombreux commentaires d'Aristote composés par Gilles de Rome, témoigne de l'importance de son rôle dans le développement du raisonnement scientifique, rôle qu'il remplit "in a style distinctive enough to place him in the first rank of those thinkers who have made a positive contribution to the scientific thought of their time" (cf. Maier, Die Vorläufer Galileis, p. 2, cité par DSB). En outre, l'Expositio se situe dans le contexte sensible de la redécouverte d'Aristote au XIIIe siècle, quand les adversaires de la papauté puisaient dans les … [Click Below for Full Description]

ANTONINUS (St.)
1495. 8vo, 50 ll., gothic type. One beautiful full-page woodcut representing the «journey to Emmaus» and a small one of a sainted bishop, thrice repeated. Title printed in red with the device of L. Giunta below. Red heading on a3 and printer's device at the end. Modern green morocco, gilt filet on the covers, gilt spine, gilt turns-in, all edges gilt (Bound by Lloyd). PREMIERE EDITION. Elle est recherchée pour sa fameuse représentation de la marche vers Emmaus, considérée à juste titre comme un des grands chefs d'oeuvre de l'illustration vénitienne au XVe siècle. L'illustration comprend également un portrait d'Antoninus, délicatement gravé sur bois, et répété à trois reprises. Parti chercher fortune à Venise en 1477, Lucantonio Giunta fut d'abord employé de papeterie, avant de fonder en 1489 une librairie spécialisée dans les livres religieux, dont il commandait la fabrication à des imprimeurs de la ville. Bien que Lucantonio fonda sa propre imprimerie en 1499, ce livre demeure le seul connu à porter sa marque d'imprimeur. On trouve relié à la suite: une biographie d'Antoninus par Franciscus Castillionensis; les épitres de Uberti de Romanis; le Trialogus de Basptista de Finaria; ainsi que regula ad omnes religiosos par Hieron Savonarala, donné ici dans son édition originale. Charmant exemplaire, bien conservé dans une reliure signée par Lloyd. Goff. A-883; CW 2203; Hain 1274 (incl. 14361 and Cop. 9507); Essling 838. Français

Bernardus Claravallensis:
Zwolle Peter van Os 27 Mai Type 6 und 8A. Zweispaltiges, 40-zeiliges Original-Inkunabelblatt mit einem altkolorierten ganzseitigen Holzschnitt (12,5 x 18,2 cm) mit dem Spruchband "Speciosus forma pre filys ho(min)um". Blatt beschnitten und mit der Signatur "a ii" und dem Wasserzeichen "Hand". Rückseite mit zweispaltigem Text. Blattgröße: 15 x 21 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Dieser Holzschnitt wurde 1487 vom berühmten "Haarlemer Holzschneider", dessen Name unbekannt geblieben ist, gefertigt. Er arbeitete von 1483 bis 1486 im Auftrag von Jacob Bellaert in Haarlem. Im Jahre 1486 verschwand Jacob Bellaert s Druckerpresse in Haarlem und im darauffolgenden Jahr befand sich der "Haarlemer Holzschneider" in Antwerpen und arbeitete nun für den Buchdrucker Gerard Leeu. Schretlen schreibt über die Tätigkeit des Künstlers in Antwerpen: "We find here (in Antwerp) the same genial descriptive qualities which characterise his Haarlem works" (Schretlen 1925, S. 33). Nach Schretlen gehört dieser hier vorliegende, in Antwerpen geschnittene Holzschnitt zum Alterswerk des Haarlemer Künstlers. Schretlen schreibt: "In 1487 Gerard Leeu published a Ludolphus (C.A. 1181) which contains several folio-woodcuts by this artist (The Haarlem woodcutter). . The representation of Christ as Salvator Mundi too is characteristic of the artist s style. He made an entirely new picture of this conventional print; the gorgeous flowered carpet as background and the well chosen shaded parts produce an incomparably pituresque effect."

THEOCRITUS, HESIOD, and others.
Essling 888; Hoffmann III, 473-474; IDL 4302; IGI 9497; Renouard, p. 1495, no. 3 ("éd. très rare"); Sander 7235; UCLA 7. Rare first issue of the first and only edition of a collection of Greek works, many of the individual works appearing here in their first editions: one of the first books produced by the famous printer-publisher Aldus Manutius, published less than a year after his first book. In fact Aldus printed only one complete book before the present edition though he also issued the first parts of two others (all in Greek), and published Bembo's Latin De Aetna in the same month.The first editions in the present collection include 12 of the Ecloques of Theocritus, Hesiod's Theogonia (or De generatione deorum) and selections from the Greek gnomic poets. It is the most interesting of all Aldine Greek editions, containing a wide variety of linguistic forms and packed with mythological or moralizing passages, and as such highly interesting for the history of education and of humanism in general and the beginning of the study of Greek language and literature in particular. There are two issues of the present edition, and the present first issue is the rarer. With armorial bookplate on the last leaf, below the colophon. In very good condition and with large margins, with the first 2 and last 2 leaves somewhat foxed, a few leaves with small marginal worm holes along the foot edge or very faint marginal water stains, none approaching the text. One of the most important books, and nearly the first, printed by Aldus Manutius, in the rare first issue.
