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]

La prima carta (a1) è presente nel nostro esemplare, è bianca al verso e al recto porta solo il titolo "defecerunt" ma presenta una filigrana diversa dalle altre e forse è presa da un' altro esemplare? comunque è molto bella e perfettamente identica all' originale, tuttavia ingenera qualche dubbio a causa della filigrana.

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.

Sale Price $2795.00 with Christmas Discount of 30% until Dec 25th- Price $1956.00 Published by Bonetus Locatellus for Octavianus Scotus, May 1497., Venice,1497 Super tertio libro Sententiarum, Petri Lombardi. Peter Lombard's Four Books of Sentences, a systematic compilation of theology, was the standard textbook of theology at medieval universities. As a subject of Christian commentary, it was second only to the Bible. Bonetus Locatellus for Octavianus Scotus, May, 1497., Venice:, 1497. Scarce Venetian printing in Latin. Overall, leaves are in excellent condition. A chance to own a piece of theological and literal history. Thomas (Aquinas) came to grips with a great new task: commenting on Peter Lombard's Sentences. (in) his journey to becoming a master in theology followed his stint as a biblical bachelor in Cologne. According to an often-invoked parallel, the commentary on the Sentences was like the chef d'oeuvre that the apprentice was required to present in order to become a master artisan. Already a century old - since its definitive edition was published between 1155 and 1158. The Sentences would remain in use - they were quickly made obligatory - in the schools for three centuries. all the scholastic writers were obliged to pour their instruction into this mold, even if in reality the process became more and more of a fiction. A detail that affected Thomas reveals the considerable import … [Click Below for Full Description]

(INCUNABULA). JACOBUS PHILIPPUS DE BERGAMO
Ferrara: Laurentius de Rubeis Valentia, 1497. FIRST EDITION. One of the finest illustrated books of the Italian Renaissance, this encyclopedia of women contains brief biographies and woodcut portraits of famous women from the Bible, Classical mythology, European history, and 15th century Italy. Jacobus Phillipus, also known as Giacomo Filippo Foresti da Bergamo (1434-1520), was an Augustinian monk and the author of the popular world history "Supplementum Chronicarum" (1483). Influenced by Boccaccio's 14th century work-also called "De Claris Mulieribus" and first printed in 1473--as well as by Plutarch's "Lives," Jacobus constructed these short essays on real and mythological women, accompanied by woodcut portraits. He began, of course, with the Blessed Virgin Mary, continuing with women from the Old Testament (Eve, Sarah, Esther) and New (Mary Magdalene), before veering off into Greeks and Romans both mythological (Minerva, Juno, Diana) and real (Sappho, Nero's wife Sabina). Jacobus credits women with a surprising array of accomplishments: Isis is identified as the creator of Egyptian writing symbols, Dido is recognized as the founder of Carthage, and Nichostrata is honored for the invention of numbers and computation. Saints from the early Church through the Middle Ages are well represented, as are queens, empresses, and lesser-known noblewomen. Many of these are "archetypal" images--the warrior, the maiden, the queen, the empress, the saint, etc.-while others have identifiable accoutrements, as with the snake-haired Medusa, St. Catherine with her wheel, and St. Ursula sh … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRANT, Robert.
The Cambridge history of India: British India, 1497-1858, p. 631; Tuck, The East India Company 1600-1858, pp. 45, 183. First and only edition of a history of the relation between Great Britain and their possessions in the East Indies, written by the British lawyer and politician Robert Grant (1779-1838), son of Charles Grant, chairman of the board of directors of the British East India Company. "The projected work was intended to exhibit, first, a historical sketch, derived from authentic sources, of the past proceedings of the East-India Company: in the next place, a correct view of the actual nature and effects of their present system, both political and commercial ... and lastly, an investigation of the objections adduced or adducible against the present system..." (p. II). The main text consists of four extensive chapters, followed by 15 appendices, mostly tables listing officers, troops and commercial details. The work is mostly written in defence on the East India Company's conduct, believing in "the Company's ability to improve conditions in India" (Tuck).Slightly foxed and binding slightly rubbed, otherwise in very good condition.

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).

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.

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]

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.

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).

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.

PETRARCH, Francesco
Bartholomaeus de Zanis. 1497 Petrarch Canzoniere Italian Renaissance Poetry Filelfo Petrarca Incunable “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. Item number: #7132 Price: $5500 PETRARCH, Francesco Trionfi (comm: Bernardo Lapini da Siena) e Canzoniere (comm: Franciscus Philelphus and Hieronymus Squarzaficus).

1497. [Lyons?]: [Printer of Persius?], 1497. 14 cm 8vo. A Rare Guide to the Sacraments with Interesting Material on Marriage Guido, de Monte Rocherii (Rochen) [14th c.]. Manipulus Curatorum; Qui summe Quilibet Sacerdoti est Necessarius et Nucliam Virtutis Animarum Ipsasq[ue] Redimendas a Purgatorio & Eterna da[m]pnatione quo Modo ad Beatitudine Pertingi Valeant in se Continet: Summa cum Diligentia Correctus. [Lyon: Printer of Persius or Paris: Michel Topie], 24 March 1497. 148 ff. Collation: a-s8, t4. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3"; 14cm x 7.5cm). 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). The Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke (GW) identifies proposes, tentatively, Mic … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

There was another Strasbourg reprint (Strasbourg being Brant's native city) by Johann Schönsperger, 1 April 1497, which included the Basle colophon.

PETRARCA, Francesco.
Venezia, Bartholomeo de Zani, 11 Luglio e 30 Agosto1497. 2 parti in un volume in-folio (316 x 216mm.), ff.136 (il primo f. bianco) e 98 ff. (l'ultimo f. bianco), legatura antica piena pelle. (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.

K4r, see below). One of the highest achievements in print of the tradition of Ferrarese illustration, in a spectacular illuminated copy.
