LYRA, Nicolaus de
Nürnberg: Koberger, Anton, 1497. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An exceedingly rare volume from the famous 15th-century Koberger Bible. This Greek and Latin Bible includes commentary of Nicolas de Lyra, a 13th-century Doctor of Theology at Paris, and, according to Darlow and Moule, "[Lyra] may be said to mark the first beginnings of a school of natural exegesis." Lyra was the first printed biblical commentator and commentary was used by Martin Luther and influenced some of his writings. In fact, Luther is quoted as saying "Without Lyra we would understand neither the Old or the New Testament. Lyra's influence was most important to the future of Bible commentary, as he took literal meanings of the text rather than inferring mystical or allegorical teachings. Anton Koberger, most-known for his monumental work "Nuremberg Chronicle," printed this illustrated Bible set. He established the first printing press in Nuremberg in 1470 and went on to publish some of the most important printed works from the 15th-century. This volume is the third volume from the famed Koberger Bible, published in 1497.

GEMINIANO, Johannes, Sancto de [1260/70-1333]
Venice: Johannes and Gregorius de Gregoriis de Forlivio, for Stephanus and Bernardinus de Nallis, 1497. Most of Johannes de Sancto Geminiano's literary output consists of sermons (more than 500 in number, distributed among several books), but he is perhaps best remembered for the curious Summa de exemplis ac similitudinibus rerum, a kind of encyclopedia for the Dominican order, in which Johannes memorably discusses scientific subjects, such as the nature of plants and animals, the seasons, the medical benefits of precious and semiprecious stones, the nature of the human body, and the various constellations' effects on the free will of men. First published in Deventer by Richard Pafraet in 1478/9, then reprinted in Cologne by Johann Koelhoff (the Elder) about 1485, the present is the third edition, and the first to be published in Italy. The work is also attributed to Helwig (Helwicus Teutonicus), the case for which was argued by Martin Grabmann in the 1930s, however deutsche-biographie.de remarks that this is a misattribution arising from Grabmann's confusing this with a similarly titled work. Though the manuscript tradition for the Summa is rarefied (Schoenberg reports nary a single exemplar from any period), it is one of the more common incunabula, with 125 complete and fragmentary copies reported. Ours seems to be the 126th. Quarto, 227 x 163 x 45 mm (binding), 222 x 160 x 39 mm (text block).

Cirurgia magistri Petri de largelata. (Colophon:) Prestantissimi artium et medicine doctoris magistri Petri de largelata chirurgie finis. D' ARGELATA, Pietro (d. 1423). Venetiis, mandato et expensis Nobilis viri Domini Octaviani Scoti Civis Modoetiensis. Octavo kalenda, 1497. Un famoso trattato medioevale di chirurgia. Octavo kalendas Martias, 1497.

Esemplare eccezionalmente ben conservato di uno dei più rari e ricercati incunaboli di chirurgia. Alcune postille di un antica mano sul margine di poche pagine. "Pietro d' Argelata, professore di medicina e chirurgia nello studio di Bologna dal 1392 al 1421, tenne sicuramente assai elevato l' insegnamento e la pratica della chirurgia. La sua abilità di chirurgo è testimonianza delle operazioni che eseguì per ernie, mal della pietra, sul cranio e sulle ossa che resecò. L' opera principale da lui lasciata è la "Cirurgia" divida in sei libri e ciascun libro in numerosi trattati e questi in più numerosi capitoli. L' opera tratta del flemmone delle ulceri, delle fratture del cranio, delle ernie, delle ferite in generale, delle verruche, della scabbia, esponendo cause e sintomi con osservazioni ed ammaestramenti di sicuro valore clinico. Una edizione a stampa esiste presso la Bibloteca Comunale di Bologna (Venetiis, Bonetus, Locatellus, exp. Octaviani Scoti, 1497-1498)."

Hartmann SCHEDEL (Norimberga 1440 - ivi 1514)
1497. Veduta fantastica della città posta nella parte inferiore del foglio che contiene anche il teste descrittivo, tratto dal Liber cronicarum cum figuris et umaginibus ab initio mudi usus mit temporis rarissima edizione "tascabile" della celebre cronaca del mondo, edita ad Ausburg presso Johann Schonsperger, nel 1496. Prima edizione in tedesco dello Schonsperger. Egli abbrevia sia il testo sia il formato dello Schedel per produrre un edizione che fosse più maneggevole a commerciabile di quella di A. Koberger. Silografia, posta nella parte centrale di un doppio foglio di testo, leggero restauro alla piega centrale, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara. An imaginary view of the city, printed on the lower part of the sheet with the descriptive text, taken from Liber cronicarum cum figuris et umaginibus ab initio mudi usus mit temporis, a very rare "pocket" edition printed in Ausburg by Johann Schonsperger, in 1496. First German edition realized by Schonsperger. He cut both text and the size realized by Schedel to relize an edition that was to be more handy and saleable. Woodcut, printed in the central part of a double text sheet, minor repair on central fold, otherwise in good condition. Rare. Sconosciuta al Frutaz.

Andrea MANTEGNA (Isola di Cartura 1431 - Mantova 1506)
Bulino, circa 1497. Magnifica prova, dell'unico stato, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata all'interno del rame, lievi interventi di restauro perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Come sempre, per le opere del Mantegna, non si può parlare di esemplare completo; come per molte opere del XV secolo gli esemplari completi dell'impronta del rame sono pratiamente introvabili. La composizione deriva dagli affreschi del Mantegna nella Camera degli Sposi; il tema delle fatiche di Ercole era uno dei più popolari dell'arte del Rinascimento, in particolare in quella del Mantegna e della sua scuola. Oltre a questo lavoro e agli affreschi, ci sono pervenuti un disegno, conservato agli Uffizi, altre due incisioni della scuola e due firmate da Giovanni Antonio da Brescia. L'opera rappresenta uno dei lavori di maggior qualità tra le incisioni della cerchia del Mantegna, molto vicino alla tecnica del Maestro. Recenti studi di Landau e Borsch assegnano la paternità dell'opera ad un pittore, il cui nome rimane ignoto, denominato Primo Incisore. Si tratterebbe dell'autore di molte delle opere della scuola di Mantegna, ad eccezione di quelle firmate da Giovanni Antonio da Brescia, al quale vengono assegnate anche alcune in precedenza attribuite a Andrea Zoan. Engraving, 1497 circa. Magnificent work, sole state, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed inside the platemark, minor repairs perfectly executed, in general in excellent condition; like many works of the XV century, examples trimmed to platemark are rare to b … [Click Below for Full Description]

PIC DE LA MIRANDOLE (Giovanni Francesco)
(1497) Hain/Copinger 13002. BMC VI : 843. Goff : P644. Édition princeps, rare. Impression de 36 lignes en caractères romains. Giovanni Francesco (Gianfranceso) Pico della Mirandola (1470-1533), à ne pas confondre avec son oncle Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494), dédie son ouvrage à Savonarole, qui mourra sur le bûcher en 1498. Exemplaire singulier et unique, relié par Marius Michel à la fin du XIXe siècle, et illustré par Henri Régnault, en 1860, de nombreuses compositions originales. Peintre orientaliste né en 1843 et mort à l'âge de 27 ans, tué par une balle prussienne, Régnault réalise ici une illustration d'inspiration néo gothique, probablement un travail de commande. Reprenant à son compte la tradition médiévale de l'enluminure, il crée une page de titre sur parchemin, à la gouache, placée en tête d'ouvrage, et réalise lettrines historiées (17) ou ornées (34), culs-de-lampe ou vignettes (3), et deux illustrations hors texte. Les feuillets ont été lavés avant l'enluminure ; l'exemplaire est en bel état et complet.

Sebastian Brant; (Albrecht Dürer):
Basel Johann Bergmann 1 August Type 1 bis 4, 1497. Einspaltiges, 30-zeiliges O-Inkunabelblatt mit einem 3/4-seitigen O-Holzschnitt (8,5 x 11,8 cm) von Albrecht Dürer. Blatt mit hälftigem Wasserzeichen Ochsenkopf. Blatt in unterer Ecke etwas fingerfleckig. Blattgröße: 14,6 x 20,8 cm. Woodcut leaf. - - - Der Originalholzschnitt von Albrecht Dürer zeigt den Narren, der sich überall einmischt, um Zwietracht zu stiften und in der Folge zwischen zwei Mühlsteinen zerrieben wird. - - - Nachdem der junge Dürer bei Michael Wohlgemuth in Nürnberg das Maler- und Stecherhandwerk erlernt hatte, begab sich der 19-jährige Dürer im Jahre 1490 auf die Wanderschaft. Zwischen dem Frühjahr 1492 und dem Herbst 1493 arbeitete er in Basel, und am 8. August 1492 erschien dort sein erster von ihm signierter und heute noch in Basel erhaltener Eingangsholzschnitt zu den "Epistolae beati Hieronymi". 1493 erschien der "Ritter vom Turn" und 1494 das "Narrenschiff" mit seinen Holzschnitten. Da nicht alle Holzschnitte im Narrenschiff von Dürer stammten, blieb seine Autorenschaft lange verborgen. 1951 entdeckte der Kunsthistoriker Friedrich Winkler die "Signatur" Dürers in den Holzschnitten. Dürer setzte auf jede Narrenkappe" eine Reihe von Schellen, die sich wie ein Scheitel über den Schädel zwischen den Ohren" hinzieht (Winkler: Dürer und die Illustrationen zum Narrenschiff, 12). Diese Unterscheidung ist von einigen Einschränkungen abgesehen, bis heute gültig. (vgl. Cornelia Schneider, Das Narrenschiff 2004, 140). Die Besonderheit der Holzschnitte von Dürer liegt in ihrer realistischen Fassung. Niemals zu … [Click Below for Full Description]

PETRARCH, Francesco
Venice: Bartholomaeus de Zanis, 1497. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Books have led some to learning and others to madness." ― Francesco Petrarch Petrarch was a 14th-century Italian humanist known for his discovery of the letters of Cicero and establishment of the study of humanism. He wrote sonnets and poems, many of which were the model of poetry during the Dark Ages. One of his most unique works was 'Il Canzoniere', a work of sonnets and poems written in Italian rather than the more accepted Latin. These poems are often considered Petrarch's best works much in part to his use of references to Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' and Virgil's 'Aeneid'. This 1497 Venetian edition was published by Bartholomew de Zanis, one of the most notable printers in all of Italy at the end of the 15th-century. Zanis utilized the 1490 edition of Plasiis for the basis of this edition. And while the poems and printer make this work desirable, the draw to this incunable printing is the extensive commentary of Francesco Filelfo.

CLUSA, Jacobus de
Nuremberg: Georg Stuchs, 1497. 1497 Clusa Souls of the Dead Ghosts Occult Poltergeist Incunable SPIRITUALISMIncunabula with instructions on speaking to the dead!Jacobus de Clusa, also thought to be called Jacob of Jüterbogk, was a 14th-century Cistercian monk who was the author of a number of theological treatises on morality, the ecclesiastical canon, and an interesting work on the state of the human soul after death - 'De Animabus Exutis a Corporibus'. Clusa states that the soul is not always in an incarnate, physical form and discusses ways to communicate with lost souls. According to Koslofsky, Clusa wrote this book in response to various hauntings that monks experienced in a nearby monastery.This treatise is one of the earliest printed works to discuss poltergeists, ghosts, and speaking with spirits from both Heaven and Hell. It should be noted, though, that Clusa included these instructions so that living people could speak with their loved lost ones - i.e. husbands and wives, etc.This incredibly rare incunabula printing was published in Nuremberg; and, according to the ISTC, was printed in 1497. The ISTC also notes that only 3 examples of this book are known to exist in institutional holdings in the United States, and the only copy in the UK is in the British Library - none for sale!

Recent period-style vellum, large blind arabesques to boards, raised bands to spine, thong ties, endpapers renewed. 32-line text in single column. A few woodcut capitals, other capital spaces, some with guide letters, left blank. Moderate toning, some edgewear to text block, occasional faint dampstaining to margins, wear to corners of first two leaves, early annotations to front endleaf and title page. $7,500. * Intended for novice priests, this pocket guide to the sacraments (with notes on canon law) has a chapter on marriage that discusses sexual problems, "De impedimento ompotentiae coeundi." It was a popular work in its day, but the Council of Trent (1563) and the creation of the Roman Catechism (1566) made this book obsolete. There is some debate concerning the printer of our imprint. The Catalogue des Incunables (CIBN) differentiates a Printer of Guido de Monte Rochen from the Printer of Persius, who is there identified with Maillet (cf. CIBN S-334 and T-36).

JACOBUS DE CLUSA
Georg Stuchs, 1497. Very good antiquarian condition. Complete. [Early printing - Incunabula - Nuremberg] [Occult & Paranormal - Ghosts, Poltergeist] [Spiritualism] Printed in Nuremberg by Georg Stuchs, ca. 1497. Text in Latin. First Nuremberg edition. RARE: ISTC locates only about 30 copies worldwide, of which only 3 in the US and 1 in UK. A scarce incunable edition of "AN INTERESTING TREATISE ON THE CONDITION OF THE HUMAN SOUL AFTER DEATH." (Catholic Encyclopedia) This curious work "DEALS SYSTEMATICALLY WITH POLTERGEISTS AND MALEVOLENT GHOSTS, souls calling out for intercessory masses and spirits from Heaven and Hell. Jacob [...] wrote the treatise when asked for advice regarding a ghost haunting the Franciscan friary in nearby Leipzig." (Koslofsky, The Reformation of the Dead, p.26). "The Cisterciensian abbot Jacob of Jüterbogk (1381 - 1465) [...] in his treatise Tractatus de animabus exutis a corporibus [states] that the dead do not always manifest themselves visibly but attract attention by (the later termed phenomenon) a poltergeist. They throw stones, break pots, overturn furniture, terrorize people in various ways and horrify them by whistling, sneezing, groaning, crying, wailing, and clapping. [...] "The author explains procedures through which one enters into contact with the souls of the dead. The rituals he described are reminiscent of Johannes Gobi. Four or five priests after confession and mass go to the place where the spirit habitually appears. Then holy water is sprinkled and God is implored to enable the spirit to reveal who he is, why he has come, and what … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edizione veneziana dei "Facta et dicta memorabilia" di Valerio Massimo con commento di Oliviero d’Arzignano. Scrittore latino vissuto a cavallo dell’anno zero protetto dal console Sesto Pompeo, lo seguì nel proconsolato d’Asia; la sua opera, dedicata a Tiberio, fu pubblicata dopo la caduta di Seiano, la cui memoria è in essa esecrata. L’opera di V. M. è una raccolta di fatti e detti memorabili in 9 libri: fatti e detti sono raccolti in 95 rubriche, ciascuna delle quali è divisa in due parti, una per i Romani e una per gli stranieri. Le cose romane hanno la prevalenza: sono 636 contro 320 straniere. Il tono è patriottico e moraleggiante, con evidente finalità retorica: la raccolta vale come strumento da scuola di retorica. Nella compilazione V. M. si avvalse di precedenti raccolte analoghe (quali quelle di Pomponio Rufo, Igino, forse Cornelio Nepote), ma usò anche direttamente autori latini come Cicerone, Varrone, Ti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Puntos ocasionales de óxido y alguna hoja oscurecida por mala calidad del papel pero buen ejemplar que conserva todos sus márgenes originales. Hain-Copinger 9818. Goff L-13. BMC v, 522. IGI 5630. IBE 3422. En la primera y última hoja sello del siglo xviii de antigua institución religiosa. Lactancio Firmiano tiene el honor de ser uno de los primeros autores clásicos impresos (sus obras estampadas en Subiaco en 1465 y en Roma en 1468 son de una rareza legendaria) y uno de los más reeditados, no en vano se conocen trece ediciones incunables. La influencia de Lactancio (ca. 260 - ca. 325), llamado el Cicerón cristiano, fue enorme durante los primeros tiempos del cristianismo y su esfuerzo por equiparar la tradición del pensamiento de Cristo entre las grandes corrientes del pensamiento filosófico clásico acabó por dar patente intelectual a la filosofía cristiana al lado de la pagana.

(A causa di una inversione nella composizione tipografica, in origine, del primo quaderno al posto della pagina aa3 verso è stata impressa aa6 recto e viceversa; tale particolarità compare sicuramente in qualche altro esemplare). Testo racchiuso nel commento, caratt. romano, capilettera ornati su fondo nero. Incunabolo illustrato da 6 stupende figure silografiche ai Trionfi a piena pagina entro bordura architettonica, già utilizzate per l'edizione del Codecha del 1493. Gli indici dei Trionfi sono seguiti dal Prologo di Bernardo Lapini a Borso d'Este, quelli del Canzoniere dalla dedica di Francesco Filelfo al Duca di Milano Filippo Maria Visconti. Edizione molto rara, fedele ristampa dell'ediz. di Piero de Plasiis, Venezia 1490, corredata dei commenti del Lapini, altrimenti detto Bernardo da Monte Illicino da Siena e del Filelfo (1398- 1481), che terminano col sonetto CVIII, cui fanno seguito quelli di Girolamo Squarzafico; entrambi furono rivisti e corretti da Girolamo Centone. Le sei grandi silografie ai Trionfi (di Amore, Castità, Morte, Fama, Tempo e di Eternità), di eccezionale pregio e bellezza, sono ora attribuite al Maestro del Pico, anonimo illustratore e miniatore di incunaboli. Benché non stimata dal Marsand ("edizione assai brutta, quant'è alla parte tipografica, e di nessun pregio quanto alla lezione del testo") si tratta di un bell'incunabolo di poesia volgare figurato, di … [Click Below for Full Description]

1497. Veduta fantastica della città posta nella parte inferiore del foglio che contiene anche il teste descrittivo, tratto dal Liber cronicarum cum figuris et umaginibus ab initio mudi usus mit temporis rarissima edizione "tascabile" della celebre cronaca del mondo, edita ad Ausburg presso Johann Schonsperger, nel 1496. Prima edizione in tedesco dello Schonsperger. Egli abbrevia sia il testo sia il formato dello Schedel per produrre un edizione che fosse più maneggevole a commerciabile di quella di A. Koberger. Silografia, posta nella parte centrale di un doppio foglio di testo, leggero restauro alla piega centrale, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara. An imaginary view of the city, printed on the lower part of the sheet with the descriptive text, taken from Liber cronicarum cum figuris et umaginibus ab initio mudi usus mit temporis, a very rare "pocket" edition printed in Ausburg by Johann Schonsperger, in 1496. First German edition realized by Schonsperger. He cut both text and the size realized by Schedel to relize an edition that was to be more handy and saleable. Woodcut, printed in the central part of a double text sheet, minor repair on central fold, otherwise in good condition. Rare. Sconosciuta al Frutaz.

Locher, Johann Georg.
Strasbourg, Johann (Reinhard) Grüninger, [not before 15 May] 1497. 4to. 62 ff. 30-33 lines and heading line (Roman type 17:145G, 22:89G); several woodcut Greek interspersions (K6v & I3r). With full-page woodcut on reverse of title page, additional full-page woodcut on f. Jiv, and 17 half-page woodcuts in the text (with some repeats). Mid-18th-century boards using an 18th-century antiphonary. First edition of the author's first important work, an exhortation to fight the Turks, couched as a Latin tragedy. Jakob Locher (1471-1528) had been created poet laureate but months before. The volume is concluded by a "Dyalogus" against all forms of heresy (and including encomia and dedicatory addresses to the Emperor and the nobles of court and clergy). - Contains fine woodcuts, some of which were used previously in the Strasbourg editions of Terence and the Ship of Fools; at least six blocks were cut originally for this book. "The opening woodcut depicts the author and newly crowned poet laureate" (cf. von Arnim). This is the earlier impression without the armorial woodcut on fol. B6r (as in Schramm); the final line of fol. J3r still reads "tekos" (for "telos"). Typographical errors "Jacboi" on fol. L2r; "Daum" (for "Datum") in final line of fol. L3r; colophone reads "anno christo". A pinhead-sized wormhole throughout the blank margin (not touching text). Top edge trimmed rather closely in places; a few underlinings by a contemporary hand. Altogether a fine, very clean copy. Extremely rare; last seen in the trade more than a decade ago (Shipperdson-Field-Nakles copy, Christie's New Y … [Click Below for Full Description]

HORTUS SANITATIS
[Strasbourg, Johann Prüss, c. a. 1497]. In-folio. [29,5 x 21 mm] Collation : (349 ff. sur 360) Vélin à rabats. (Reliure de l'époque.). ____ Magnifique édition, illustrée de plus de 1000 bois gravés de ce "Jardin de santé", un encyclopédie médiévale de la Nature : plantes, animaux terrestres, oiseaux, poissons et pierres y sont traités successivement. Seconde ou troisième édition. (Il y a deux éditions chez Johann Prüss, non datées, qui ont été publiées autour de 1497.) Elles suivent la première de Mayence en 1491. L'Hortus sanitatis est la compilation la plus étendue des connaissance en botanique que l'on nomme "herbiers". Il est basé sur le "Gart der Gesundheit" (vers 1485), mais a été presque entièrement réécrit et très augmenté pour ce qui concerne les animaux et les minéraux. Ils n'étaient que schématiquement représenté dans le précédent ouvrage. C'est dans les éditions de Prüss qu'apparaît pour la première fois un grand bois gravé d'un squelette humain et il a été joint dans la plupart des éditions d'herbier qui ont suivies. Livres d'usages, les herbiers anciens sont le plus souvent incomplets. Il manque ici le Traité des urines (cahiers aa6 et bb4) qui n'a jamais été relié dans cet exemplaire et le dernier feuillet ee6 (fin de la table au recto, le verso est blanc) Quelques auréoles dans les marges, salissures sur la reliure, accroc à la coiffe, mais très bon exemplaire grand de marges. *-------* Splendid edition, illustrated by more than 1000 woodcuts, of this medieval encyclopedia of the natural world. Second or third edition. (There are two undated editions by Joh … [Click Below for Full Description]

HORTUS SANITATIS.
[Strassburg, Johann Prüss, not after 21 October, 1497]. Folio (299 x 200mm), ff 360, two columns, 55 lines, with large woodcut of scholar seated at lectern and four students on verso of title, one large woodcut of a human skeleton on verso of sectional title to De animalibus, one large woodcut of a physician and apothecary in an apothecary's shop on verso of sectional title to De urinis, and 1063 woodcuts of plants, animals, etc. in text, capital spaces with guide letters, with several capitals supplied in red, a large, crisp, uncut copy in its untouched contemporary blind-stamped calf binding over oak boards, although there is considerable wear to the binding it retains a lot of charm in its untouched state, a few pages possibly from another copy, in a fine half calf gilt fitted case. First Prüss edition, the first reprinting of the Hortus sanitatis (first Mainz 1491). This edition is rare, and was the prototype for all subsequent editions. The Hortus sanitatis, in its many editions and translations was the most popular and influential herbal of its time, and served as an encyclopaedia of the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms and the medical applications of their products.'Prüss was the man who really profited by the edition of the Latin Hortus (Meydenbach could not issue a second edition); for his editions are printed with wide economy of paper, the whole text of Meydenbach's book is brought on 360 leaves (instead of 453) by the use of 55 lines to the column and a smaller type. Instead of the 7 full-page woodcuts of the Mainz original, Prüss gives three other full-page … [Click Below for Full Description]
