Polycarp, Saint, Bp. of Smyrna; & Ignatius, Saint, Bp. of Antioch.
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 archiep … [Click Below for Full Description]

MEDER, JOHANNES
Basel: Michael Furter, 1495. FIRST EDITION. 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 a 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 Heintz-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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

LYRA, Nicolas de.
GW M26693 (2 copies incl. the present copy); Hain & Copinger 3726; ISTC in00147400 (1 copy). Second copy recorded of the first Paris edition of a notorious anti-Jewish treatise by Nicolas de Lyra (ca. 1270-1349), a French theologian and Franciscan friar minor best known for his biblical exegesis. Some say Nicolas de Lyra himself had Jewish parents. The present scholastic work is based on a disputation held at Paris University in 1309. Summarizing the anti-Jewish polemics of Christian theology, De Lyra's disputation became a standard work of Christian apologetics and a point of departure and "source of inspiration" for many anti-Jewish books during the next centuries. With a couple contemporary annotations. With a hole in the margin of one leaf and an occasional minor smudge or stain but otherwise in fine condition. The sheet for quire b was creased before it went through the press and flattened afterwards, leaving white gaps in 3 leaves but with no loss of text. The binding with minor wear to the hinges and extremities but otherwise in very good condition. An extremely rare French incunable.

INCUNABLE PRINTING OF EMPEROR JUSTINIAN'S CODEX. The Codex Justinianus [first printed in Mainz 1475]was the first of four parts of what became known as the Corpus Juris Civilis, a collection of fundamental works on Roman law that was issued from 529 to 534 AD by order of Justinian I, Eastern Roman Emperor. It has been called "the most notable and enduring achievement of the age", in which "the old (Roman) imperium displayed its full powers" (George Ostrogorsky, History of the Byzantine State). The codex was a compilation in Latin of the existing imperial constitutiones (imperial pronouncements having the force of law), back to the time of Emperor Hadrian in the second century. Although the other parts, the Digest [Rome 1476] and the Institutes [Mainz 1468] and the Novellae [Mainz 1477], were arguably more original, containing an important anthology of jurisprudence, a handbook for t … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARISTOTELES (ARISTOTLE). - [ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE BOOK]
Venice, Aldus Manutius, 1495. Small folio. Lovely contemporary full leather binding (presumably French) with blindtooled borders and ornamentation to boards. Magnificently rebacked, perfectly matching the boards, with 6 raised bands and blindstamped ornamentation. Leather ties to boards expertly renewed. Handwritten title to bottom edge. Some wear to boards, but all in all very nice indeed. Smudging to first two words of the first leaf and some occasional light minor soiling or browning, but otherwise a very nice, clean, and fresh copy, with large margins. A single, small marginal wormhole, far from affecting text. Contemporary marginal annotations in an elegant humanist hand, in both Greek and Latin. Final blank with neat annotations in Greek and Latin and a diagram. (234) ff. ¶ Editio princeps of Aristotle's logical works (as well as the editio princeps of Porphyrios' "Isagoge"), arguably the most important publication in the entire history of printing.

[ALDUS].
Ahmanson-Murphy 112; Hoffman 3, p.167; Kallendorf & Wells, Aldine Press Books 99; Renouard, pp. 60-62. Very important first edition of most of the Attic orators, the works of Demosthenes having been published earlier. It is one of the most important and beautiful books printed by the famous Aldine printing office, two years before Aldus Manutius's death. It includes texts by Aeschines, Lysias, Alcidamas, Anthisthenes, Damades, Andocides, Isaeus, Dinarchus, Antiphon, Lycurgus, Gorgias, Lesbonax, Herodes, Isocrates and Aristides. There are two important dedicatory letters by Aldus Manutius: one to Francesco Fasolo and one to Giovanni Battista Egnazio. The main texts are set entirely in Aldus's ligatured Greek type, a style he introduced in 1495 that established the main stream of Greek printing types that reigned for two hundred years. Provenance: British Museum Library (duplicate sale 1814); Charles P. Burney; Charles Bloomfield (on his death in 1857 his heirs returned the book to Charles Burney, who had given it to him); William Foyle. The leaf with a 2-line instruction to the binder, in volume 1, has been removed as intended (as in nearly every copy). Very occasional slight browning or faint stains, the lower margin of quire ff extended. In very good condition. The bindings are somewhat worn on the spine, hinges and edges, but still in good condition. Beautiful first edition of the Attic orators, rarely found in such good condition.

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.

FRENCH ILLUMINATOR
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.

His principal work, Vita Christi (Life of Christ), was written in 1374. It had significant influence on the development of techniques for Christian meditation by introducing the concept of immersing and projecting oneself into a Biblical scene about the life of Jesus which became popular among the Devotio Moderna community, and later influenced Ignatius of Loyola.

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."

Basileae: Per magistrum Ioannem De Amerbach, 1495. Hardcover. How to Write a Letter to your Son in 1495. 229 x 165 mm (9 x 6 1/2"). 159 unnumbered leaves, lacking the final blank. Single column, 35 lines, roman type. Pleasing contemporary pigskin over wooden boards, original clasp plate and catch (thong lacking), remnants of manuscript pastedowns. Initials hand-painted in red (but only a few called for). Contemporary ownership inscription on title, earlier inscription obscured by dark strip of ink. Goff P-623; BMC III, 756. Top of spine a bit worn, lower joint with crack from bottom of spine to lowest band (small loss at band), pigskin somewhat darkened and slightly chafed, but the contemporary binding entirely sound and still quite appealing, even with its imperfections. Fore margin of title page expertly renewed with old paper, the same leaf with small hole caused by inked-out title inscription on recto (partial loss of two letters on verso), minor marginal wormholes through a couple of quires, intermittent faint dampstains in margin, other trivial defects, but quite a fresh copy internally with ample fore and tail margins. All in all, an excellent contemporary copy. A practical work of considerable utility, this volume contains summaries of rhetorical precepts to be applied to the art of letter writing, a study of 24 different types of letters, instructions as to the proper forms of address, and a series of sample letters. These samples show how to write letters of congratulations or vituperation, how to arouse one to action or to encourage the acceptance of peace, and e … [Click Below for Full Description]
