BRUNI, Leonardo
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 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]

Superb Humanist "Sammelband" with the collected works of three classical authors, in a fine contemporary Strasbourg binding. The first work consists of the fifth-century pseudo-Acron scholia and the commentaries by the third-century scholar Porphyrion, and by two 15th-century humanists, Christophoro Landino and Antonio Mancinelli. The Persius appears here for the first time with the notes by three 15th-century Italians, Giovanni Britannico, Bartelomeo Fonti, and Giovanni Bonardi. The present Reggio Emilia imprint of the Juvenal is the second edition of Britannico's commentary, and is so rare that it was unknown to Schweiger.With 18th-century manuscript paper title label on spine; manuscript titles on fore-edge; 2 bifolia slightly foxed. Splendid copy, from the library of the Fürstenberg family.

'In studying nature we have not to inquire how God the Creator may, as He freely wills, use His creatures to work miracles and thereby show forth His power: we have rather to inquire what Nature with its immanent causes can naturally bring to pass' (De Coelo et Mundo, I, tr. iv, x). 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. L'influenza esercitata da Alberto sugli studiosi dei suoi tempi e su quelli degli anni seguenti fu, naturalmente, molto grande. La su … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jahrhunderts, die bei weitem größte Verbreitung gefunden hat.

Paratus; Kruttli, Johannes
Strassburg]: (Martin Flach), 1495-1500. Strassburg]: (Martin Flach). Good with no dust jacket. 1495-1500. Hardcover. 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 … [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]

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

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.

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.
