Thomas Aquinas
Nurnberg: 1496. Complete and in good condition. Thomas Aquinas Summa Theologiae Pars prima secundae Printed in 1496 in Nurnberg, Germany, by Anton Koberger Language: Latin Folio, 300x200 mm Offered for sale is a beautiful example of early renaissance book making, the first part of the second book of Thomas Aquinas' famous Summa Theologica, a huge piece of work dealing with the philosophical foundations of christian faith. This book was printed by the famous book printer Anton Koberger in Nurnberg, present day Germany, in one of the largest printing houses of the time. The printing year and the printer do not appear in the book, since they were printed only on the last (fourth) part of the series. The pages are of thick and strong rag paper that has stood up to the ravages of time remarkably well. The pages are generally clean and free of tears, bends, etc. Some minor water damage on part of the pages. The binding is probably from the 17th century, all pages are bound and the binding is solid. Leather boards with guilt ornaments in the back. The boards are quite worn on the edges. The book is complete with the collation matching to the ones found in the internet. The pages are rubricated throughout. The title page has many inscriptions, one of which states that the book is from the Monastery of St. Maurice. Please take a good look at the images and ask questions. More images are available on request, for instance. And please note that sending books of this size from Finland is very expensive, so expensive in fact, that with the quoted shipping costs, I will still be on the m … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gregory, also known as Saint Gregory the Great, is credited with founding the medieval papacy and is famous for instigating the first recorded large-scale mission from Rome, the Gregorian Mission, to convert the pagan Anglo-Saxons in England to Christianity. The present work was written between 578 and 595, begun while Gregory was at the court of Tiberius II at Constantinople, and probably finished after he returned to Rome, perhaps as early as 591. It served as a sourcebook for many of the great Christian teachers of the Middle Ages, including Hugh of St. Victor, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Saint Bonaventure. The first incunable edition was published in Nuremberg in 1471. The present edition is the seventh incunable edition. Folio. 361 of 364 leaves, complete except for three blanks (iii6, a1, HH8), which have been excised. Text in double columns, rubricated throughout in red and blue.

Albrecht DURER (Norimberga 1471 - 1528)
"Xilografia, 1496 circa, monogrammata in basso al centro. Terzo stato, con l'occhio destro della figura femminile danneggiato. Tiratura del 1580 circa. Splendido esemplare, stampato su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Si tratta dell'unica xilografia a soggetto mitologico realizzata da Dürer. Panofsky inizialmente identificò il soggetto rappresentato come Ercole che uccide Caco, per poi riconoscere correttamente che Ercole qui è raffigurato mentre combatte i gemelli, figli di Molione. Secondo la leggenda, i corpi dei gemelli di Molione, Eurito e Cteato, erano uniti e la loro forza combinata superava quella di qualsiasi essere umano. Ercole indossa la pelle di un cinghiale perché questo episodio precede l'uccisione del leone Nemeo che viene mostrato sullo sfondo. Winkler ha trovato questa xilografia ""piuttosto poco attraente, i dettagli forti e interessanti sminuiti dalle vaste aree bianche"". Dodgson ha osservato che l'uso di un cartellino in una xilografia è piuttosto raro, ma che il soggetto sembra essere stato prontamente compreso dal pubblico di Dürer, come dimostra la xilografia di Geoffrey Tory che è ovviamente ispirata a questa. L'influenza italiana è stata sottolineata da diversi studiosi, ma i Tietzes hanno notato che la posizione di Ercole corrisponde a quella di San Giorgio in un dipinto che si trovava a Bergheim, vicino a Colmar, dove è probabile che Dürer l'avesse visto. Il dipinto è ora nel Museo Unterlinden. La punta della barba di Ercole è l'esatto centro geometrico della scena. Il blocco di legno originale è stato presentato al British … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gregorious I, Pope
Basel: Nicolaus Kesler, 1496. Full pigskin. Very good. Folio. 361 (of 364) leaves, complete but for the 3 blank leaves (2 blanks after the Index at front, and a blank before the final section, "Tabula Auctoritatum Biblie." Double column. Rubricated throughout in red & blue. The decorative two line title is printed from a woodcut. Some occasional staining. Pin hole worming, moderate at front and back sections, but mostly absent in the middle portion. No loss of text or readability. Bound in contemporary full pigskin over oak boards. Covers with ornately blind tooled panels and floral tooling. With the original engraved brass bosses to all corners and centers of both covers. Brass catches, but lacking the fore-edge clasps. Spine with 4 ruled raised bands. Cont. manuscript notes on front pastedown. Some contemporary text marginalia. Evidence front & back of a vellum medieval manuscript leaf used as binder's waste. Gregory's (Pope 590-604) moral homilies on Job, one of his greatest works. These homilies are a "summa" of Christian doctrine and served as a source book for the great Christian teachers of the middle ages; Hugh of St. Victor, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Bonaventura and many others. Although this copy has some worming and lacks the blank leaves, it is a particularly good example of a 15th century book for teaching purposes, being an impressive folio in its original binding, still with almost all of its brass fittings, with text marginalia, and vellum manuscript binder's waste evidence.

MEXIA, Pedro.
Very rare first Antwerp edition of six dialogues in Spanish by Pedro Mexia (1496-1552), a humanist who lived in Seville. The first edition appeared in Seville in 1547. The work is dedicated to Perafan de Ribera, Marques de Tarisa, and includes a verse note to the reader by Gaspar Lupus. The six dialogues, in a very lively style, cover: "Dialogo de los medicos" on the advantages and disadvantages of the physicians; "Colloquio del combite" on comets; "Colloquio del sol" on the sun (and moon); "Coloquio del porfiado" on stubborn people; "Dialogo de la tierra" on the earth; and "Dialogo natural" on natural phenomenon such as the variety of clouds, thunder, earthquakes, etc.The coat of arms on the binding is that first used in 1548 by Philip I, Landgrave of Hesse (1504-1567), but the general style of the binding suggests the 17th rather than the 16th century.With a tear across one leaf, repaired, but otherwise in good condition. The first and third of the 3 integral final blank leaves have been removed from the final quire and inserted as endleaves before the title-page. Ties lacking. A collection of six dialogues mainly on natural phenomena.Belg.

PTOLEMY. Johannes REGIOMONTANUS (Johannes MÜLLER) [and Georg PEURBACH].
Venice: Johannes Hamman, 31 August 1496. First edition. First edition, and a beautiful, large and fresh copy in an outstanding contemporary Italian binding preserved in its original state, of this epochal work by the leading astronomer of the fifteenth century. "The importance of this book lies in the fact that it enshrines, within the editor's commentary, the first appearance in print, in a Latin translation from the Greek, of the monumental compendium of Claudius Ptolemaeus of Alexandria known as the Almagest" (PMM), the foundation of ancient astronomy. "The Almagest of Ptolemy (90-180 AD) had been known since the late 1100s only through a poor Arabic translation until Cardinal Bessarion charged the eminent Georgius Peuerbach with the task of properly editing the text. Only the first four books were completed when Peuerbach died in 1461 and the work was finished by his pupil Regiomontanus. This handsome volume again brought Greek astronomy and the accepted version of the universe before the Western world in Latin, a language all learned men could read. The xylographic portrait of Regiomontanus is considered authentic" (Dibner, Heralds, 1). "The Epitome of the Almagest was a new astronomical treatise. It paved the way for future investigations on the basis of fundamental observations and findings of the past, and his pointing out defects stimulated new research. Both Copernicus and Galileo used it as their textbook" (Zinner, Regiomontanus: his life and work, p. 54).

The main reason that most literate people have heard of Sebond, as he is called in French, is because of Montaigne, who translated the book into French (1569) and indeed in his Essais (ii,12) wrote the 'Apologie pour Raymond Sebond', but in its day, and for a long time later, it was a celebrated text. The title translates 'Natural Theology or the book of [living] creatures, in particular about man and his nature inso far as he is man, and about those things necessary for him to know both himself and God, and about every duty by which man is held and obligated both in respect of God and his neighbour'. The scope is therefore pretty wide. The main point of Sebond's work is that that faith can be taught, att … [Click Below for Full Description]

GREGORY THE GREAT, ST
Basel: Michael Furter, 1496. Containing the only authentic biographical work on St. Benedict, this dialogue between Gregory and his deacon, Peter, on the lives of bishops, monks, and other religious is one of a series of short works by our author printed by Michael Furter in 1496. Composed ca. 593 and first printed in 1473, the work devotes the second of its four books entirely to the life of St. Benedict, for which Gregory had consulted men who actually knew the founder of Monte Cassino: Constantinus, who succeeded Benedict as abbot; Valentinianus, head of Lateran Abbey; Simplicius, the third superior of Benedict's order; and Honoratus, Abbot of Subiaco. Books I and III feature sketches of bishops, abbots, monks, and one nun, as well as various devout laymen and the gardener of an abbey. Book IV is a more mystical discussion of death, the soul, and the afterlife. Pope, saint, Doctor of the Church, and one of the four great Latin Fathers, Gregory (ca. 540-604) was, in the words of Britannica, "the first exponent of a truly medieval, sacramental spirituality." His works were more accessible than those of other great Church Fathers, and his influence reached beyond the rarefied circles of scholarship to ordinary Christians. The "Dialogues" were so revered in the Eastern Orthodox Church that the saint is known as "Gregory Dialogos." The present copy is exceptionally bright and fresh.. 210 x 150 mm. (8 1/8 x 6").

Albrecht DURER (Norimberga 1471 - 1528)
"Xilografia, 1496 circa, monogrammata in basso al centro. Terzo stato, con l'occhio destro della figura femminile danneggiato. Tiratura del 1580 circa. Splendido esemplare, stampato su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Si tratta dell'unica xilografia a soggetto mitologico realizzata da Dürer. Panofsky inizialmente identificò il soggetto rappresentato come Ercole che uccide Caco, per poi riconoscere correttamente che Ercole qui è raffigurato mentre combatte i gemelli, figli di Molione. Secondo la leggenda, i corpi dei gemelli di Molione, Eurito e Cteato, erano uniti e la loro forza combinata superava quella di qualsiasi essere umano. Ercole indossa la pelle di un cinghiale perché questo episodio precede l'uccisione del leone Nemeo che viene mostrato sullo sfondo. Winkler ha trovato questa xilografia ""piuttosto poco attraente, i dettagli forti e interessanti sminuiti dalle vaste aree bianche"". Dodgson ha osservato che l'uso di un cartellino in una xilografia è piuttosto raro, ma che il soggetto sembra essere stato prontamente compreso dal pubblico di Dürer, come dimostra la xilografia di Geoffrey Tory che è ovviamente ispirata a questa. L'influenza italiana è stata sottolineata da diversi studiosi, ma i Tietzes hanno notato che la posizione di Ercole corrisponde a quella di San Giorgio in un dipinto che si trovava a Bergheim, vicino a Colmar, dove è probabile che Dürer l'avesse visto. Il dipinto è ora nel Museo Unterlinden. La punta della barba di Ercole è l'esatto centro geometrico della scena.

Impressus Venetijs: Optimaq[ue] castigatione eme[n]datu[m]: per Georgi, 1496. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Michael de Carcano was a 15th-century Franciscan preacher who is best remembered for his role in the establishment of the 'Montes Pietas' banking system - a money lending system aimed to reform the corruption of money lending. He also published a collection of sermons, entitled simply 'Sermonium', which, consequently, were given in support of his attempts at loan reform. In his sermons given in Perugia, Carcano adamantly preached against using Jewish money lenders - a stance which would empower those already persecuting Jews. It is speculated that his anti-Semitic sermons were the direct cause of his murder. This September 1496 printing of 92 Carcano "sermons" was published in Venice by Georgius Arrivabenus and is entirely complete.

Basel: Michael Furter, 20 September 1496. Edited by Sebastian Brant. Basel: Michael Furter, XII. kal. octobris (= 20 September) 1496. First Latin edition.The legend of a Swiss saint and the foundation of Einsiedeln Abbey. This small incunable contains the account of the life of St. Meinrad of Einsiedeln. Sebastian Brant's rare Latin edition is based on a 12th-century manuscript. Twenty-one fine large woodcuts illustrate the story of the saint and his martydom. Meinrad became priest and monk on the Reichenau island (Lake Constance), and decided to live as a hermit. First he settled at Etzel Pass, but in 835 he retreated to the 'Finstern Walde' (Dark Forest, in today's canton Schwyz), where he was assassinated by two robbers on 21 January 861. According to the legend, ravens revealed the identities of the murderers, who thus were caught and executed. At the place of Meinrad's hermitage Benedictine monks founded the monastery of Einsiedeln (the name signifying 'hermitage'), whose abbots were elevated to the rank of princes by Rudolf of Hapsburg in 1274. Einsiedeln Abbey, whose present buildings date from between 1704 and 1720, developed into one of the world's most important destinations for pilgrims till these days. The present Latin edition of the Passio Meynradi was edited by Sebastian Brant and was probably commissioned by Albrecht of Bonstetten (deacon of Einsiedeln from 1470 onwards). The redaction of the text was likewise attributed to him - erroneously, as we know now. As P. Gebhard Müller found out, the text is based on cod. 249 of the Stiftsbibliothek Einsiedeln, (In … [Click Below for Full Description]

It is regarded as one of the most influental texts of western literature and the best work of Thomas Aquinas.

This is the second book (pars prima secundae) of a set printed in 1496 by the famous printer Anton Koberger in Nürnberg, Germany.

Hermann Nitzschewitz
Zinna, Zisterzienserkloster, 1493, 1496. Zwei O-Inkunabelblätter mit jeweils einem 15-zeiligen Text und 6 Holzschnitten. Jeweils kleiner Einriss (17 mm) im Rand. Blätter knapp beschnitten. Blattgrößen: 13,8 x 19,3 cm und 13,6 x 19,6 cm. - - - Ältester Druck von Brandenburg! Der Anlass zum Druck des Marienpsalters war der Kampf gegen die Türken im 15. Jahrhundert, die nach dem Fall von Konstantinopel 1453 eine akute Gefahr für das katholische Europa darstellten. Der Psalter hatte somit nicht nur eine geistliche, sondern auch eine politische Zielstellung, die vom Verfasser und den Sponsoren als so wesentlich angesehen wurden, dass sie gleich im Titel mitgenannt wurde (ad Turci). Inhaltlich ist der Psalter ein Erbauungsbuch, ganz dem durch die Mystik erneut angeregten Marienkult gewidmet. Ein Holzschnitt zeigt eine ungewöhnliche Darstellung: Ein Kruzifix schwimmt in einem See, drei Männer am Ufer speien das Wasser, das sie zu trinken versucht hatten, wieder aus. Der Holzschnitt illustriert die Geschichte vom See zu Mara, dessen bitteres Wasser die Israeliten nicht trinken konnten. Moses süßt das bittere Wasser von Mara durch ein Holzkreuz. Die Darstellung richtet sich gegen die Widerwilligen, die das süße Leben der Frommen ablehnen. (Erik Hühns: Der Marienpsalter des Klosters Zinna, Inkunabelkunde 1975).

Small 4to 8" x 5", mostly in 6s except last quire which is in 4s. unnumbered 46 ff (including final blank), 30 lines. Handsomely and romantically bound in 19th century vellum spine over older wooden boards. Spine has hand inked title in red and black in best 19th century medieval style, remains of clasps with tooled metal catch. Wooden boards have some letters scratched in on the front but we can't make out what they say. Interior has modern very low key bookplate with pencil bibliographic information. Title page has older monastic pen ownership inscription as well as an earlier owner inscription that is hard to make out. Title page has some marginal staining and small worming, paper is strong, some foxing and browning, damp stain at h2-h4 top gutter and small worming in h3 upper margin, old marginilia mostly in f quire.

It sees the Arab conquests of the Christian communities as God's punishment but predicts the rise of a messiah in the form of a Roman emperor to crush the Turks and Sa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nicolaus de Dinkelsbühl.
Straßburg [Georg Husner], 1496. 195 Bl. (a8 weiß). Mit zahlreichen rot eingemalten Lombarden. 4° (20,5 x 14 cm). Blindgeprägtes braunes Leder der Zeit auf Holzdeckeln. Erste Ausgabe. - Nikolaus von Dinkelsbühl (um 1360-1433), Lehrer und Rektor an der Universität Wien, zählte als Berater und Beichtvater Herzog Albrechts V. zu den einflußreichsten deutschen Theologen seiner Zeit, unter anderem war er Delegierter des Herzogs am Konstanzer Konzil. "In der Leichenrede bezeichnete Petrus von Pirchenwart N. als 'zweiten Gründer der Wiener Universität'. Der Ehrentitel 'Lux Sueviae' und die Urteile Enea Silvio Piccolominis (Papst Pius II.), Gabriel Biels und Jakob Wimpfelings bezeugen die hohe Wertschätzung N.s durch die Nachwelt. Er war ein Mann von ernster und tiefer Frömmigkeit, dabei ein geschickter Universitäts- und Kirchenpolitiker. Seine Theologie ist die einer Umbruchszeit: N. verbindet Methoden der Scholastik mit dem Bestreben, die Kluft zwischen Wissen und Glauben zu schließen. Er verfügte über ausgezeichnete Kenntnis der Bibel, die er weiten Kreisen zugänglich zu machen und zu erklären versuchte. Sein Bemühen um die Reinheit des Glaubens ist gepaart mit dem Versuch, ausgleichend und mäßigend zu wirken. Der Wille zur Reform der Kirche an Haupt und Gliedern ist verbunden mit der Überzeugung, daß auch den Laien religiöses Wissen zugänglich gemacht werden muß. Die immense Verbreitung seiner Werke spricht für seinen Erfolg bei den Zeitgenossen" (Freimut Löser, in: NDB XIX, 271). - Komplett, es fehlt lediglich das weiße Schlußblatt. - Teils gering gebräunt und wenig fleckig, di … [Click Below for Full Description]

Albrecht DURER
Xilografia, 1496 circa, monogrammata in basso al centro. Terzo stato, con l’occhio destro della figura femminile danneggiato. Tiratura del 1580 circa. Splendido esemplare, stampato su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Si tratta dell’unica xilografia a soggetto mitologico realizzata da Dürer. Panofsky inizialmente identificò il soggetto rappresentato come Ercole che uccide Caco, per poi riconoscere correttamente che Ercole qui è raffigurato mentre combatte i gemelli, figli di Molione. Secondo la leggenda, i corpi dei gemelli di Molione, Eurito e Cteato, erano uniti e la loro forza combinata superava quella di qualsiasi essere umano. Ercole indossa la pelle di un cinghiale perché questo episodio precede l'uccisione del leone Nemeo che viene mostrato sullo sfondo. Winkler ha trovato questa xilografia "piuttosto poco attraente, i dettagli forti e interessanti sminuiti dalle vaste aree bianche". Dodgson ha osservato che l'uso di un cartellino in una xilografia è piuttosto raro, ma che il soggetto sembra essere stato prontamente compreso dal pubblico di Dürer, come dimostra la xilografia di Geoffrey Tory che è ovviamente ispirata a questa. L'influenza italiana è stata sottolineata da diversi studiosi, ma i Tietzes hanno notato che la posizione di Ercole corrisponde a quella di San Giorgio in un dipinto che si trovava a Bergheim, vicino a Colmar, dove è probabile che Dürer l'avesse visto. Il dipinto è ora nel Museo Unterlinden. La punta della barba di Ercole è l'esatto centro geometrico della scena. Il blocco di legno originale è stato presentato al British Mu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Albrecht DURER
Bulino, 1496 circa, monogrammato in lastra, in basso al centro. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "Grande porta di città" (Meder n. 260 – usata da Dürer a partire dal 1511), completa dell’impronta del rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Meder 54, e/f San Giovanni Crisostomo, era un eremita paleocristiano famoso per la sua eloquenza (il suo nome significa "la bocca d'oro"). Secondo una leggenda, mentre viveva in una caverna da anacorea, peccò con la figlia di un imperatore che si era rifugiata nel suo eremo. e da eremta vivea in solitudine in una grotta fino a quando un giorno non incontrò la bellissima figlia di un re da cui venne sedotto. Giovanni, pieno di rimorso, giurò di camminare a quattro zampe come penitenza finché non avesse pttenuto il perdono divino. Sebbene il penitente errante dia il nome a questa stampa, Dürer lo ha raffigurato come uno dei personaggi minori, sullo sfondo, mentre la madre e il bambino, in primo piano, catturano l’attenzione dello spettatore. La storia di S. Giovanni Cristostomo è illustrata da xilografie tanto nella Vite dei Santi di Günther Zoiner (1471) che in quella di Koberger del 1488. Ma nessuna di queste mostra il motivo della principessa col bambino. Secondo Vasari Dürer avrebbe liberamente aggiunto la donna e il bambino perchè „volle mostrare che sapeva fare gl’ignudi", oppure, come ritiene W.L. Strauss "Nel sopprimere quasi completamente il triste monaco in favore di questo gruppo commovente, Dürer trasformò una storia spuria di "Peccato e castigo" in un idillio di tenera umanità e innocenza primordia … [Click Below for Full Description]
