[Theophrastus]
Aldus Manutius, 1497. Single Sheet. Near Fine. Matted and framed. Slight wrinkle, but overall extremely well-preserved - no tears, stains, chips, or other markings. 1497 Single Sheet. Pages 133/134 of the edition of Peri Phyton Altion, or On the Causes of Plants, printed by Aldus Manutius in 15th century Venice. Theophrastus was a successor to Aristotle in the Peripatetic school at the Lyceum, and is often considered the father of botany, though his writings treated a variety of other scientific and philosophical topics. This particular work was influential in Renaissance science: it and his other major work on the subject, Enquiry into Plants, are among the most important botanical works of the period, and put forward the first mode of systematization within the discipline. Equally important (if not more so) is the publisher of this edition: Aldus Manutius was a very important printer and publisher in 15th century Venice, known for his Aldine Press, the invention of italicized type, influence of our modern usage of the semicolon and comma, and the marketing of inexpensive, portable books which presaged the popularity of modern paperbacks. His publisher's device, a dolphin wrapped around an anchor, was instantly popular and widely pirated. It is still used by Doubleday. During his career, he made a number of innovations related to binding and design, and his efforts to publish Greek classics (such as this one), as well as Latin and Italian ones, played no small role in the survival of many works to the modern day that would otherwise have been lost to history.

St. Jerome (ca. 347-420), i.e. Eusebius Hieronymus
per Maestro Lorenzo di Rossi da Valenza (Laurentius de Rubeis, 1497. First Edition. Hardcover. Single leaf: Eiii = folio CCXVIIII (sic). 2 col., headline + 47 lines text. Roman type. From the "De Damaso Papa" section (Epistola 51 and parts of Epistola 50 and 52). Very good. Fine incunable leaf with 2 woodcuts by the so-called Pico Master (Venice and Ferrara). Both woodcuts measure ca. 75 x 50 mm, and two elaborate white-vine woodcut initials. "The first edition of St. Jerome's letters translated into Italian was one of the most profusely and elegantly illustrated books printed during the fifteenth century. Featuring full-page ornamental woodcuts surrounding the dedication and title pages, the book includes more than eighty illustrations of the life of St. Jerome. Reflecting both the Classical influences and the high quality of book illustration in Ferrara at this time, these woodcuts set a high standard for Italian illustrators throughout the Renaissance" (Highlights of the Bridwell Library Theology and Church History online exhibit, accessed 1/18/16). Literature: Daniel De Simone, "The Woodcut in Ferrara in the Late Fifteenth Century" in: Book Talk: Essays on Books, Booksellers, Collecting, and Special Collections, ed.

HIERONYMUS, (Saint Jérome)
Ferrare, Laurentius de Rubeis, 1497. ____ Première édition illustrée et première édition en italien. C'est un des plus beaux incunables illustrés imprimés en Italie. Cinq feuillets sont illustrés à pleine page avec un encadrement de bois gravés ( feuillets 2a, 5b, 6a, 253b, 254a) et l'on compte 188 charmants bois gravés dans le texte de la largeur d'une colonne. L'artiste, resté anonyme, a gravé, non sans humour, sur toutes les vignettes où figure Saint-Jérome, un lion dont l'expression faciale change suivant les événements auquel il assiste. L'ouvrage est élégamment imprimé en caractères romains, sur deux colonnes. Il existe plusieurs variantes du feuillet 5b. Celui-ci contient une dédicace à Augustinus Barbadicus datée de 1495. On connaît 30 ouvrages sortis des presses de Lorenzo de Rossi, alias Laurentius de Rubeis. L'année 1497 a été sa période la plus florissante. Il y imprima ses deux plus beaux ouvrages, le 'De claris mulieribus' de Bergomensis et ces "Lettres" de Saint-Jérome en italien. Au vu de la richesse du matériel xylographique utilisé dans ces deux ouvrage, on pense qu'il devait bénéficier du soutien d'un riche mécène. L'exemplaire est complet, ce qui est rare, des deux titres xylographiques et de la vie de Saint-Jérome en début d'ouvrage. Premier titre xylographique doublé et habilement restauré dans sa marge latérale avec trois lettres en fac-similé. Quelques piqûres de vers dans la seconde partie du volume sans gravité. Bel exemplaire. BMC VI, 614. Goff H-178. ISTC : ih00178000. *-------* First edition in Italian and first illustrated edition. One of the f … [Click Below for Full Description]

HORTUS SANITATIS
[Strasbourg, Johann Prüss, c. a. 1497]. ____ 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.

PONTIFICAL
Rome, Stephanus Plannck, 16 Aout 1497. ____ Très bel incunable imprimé en noir et rouge, avec musique gravée. Le premier feuillet de texte est superbement enluminé. Au centre d'une grande initiale à rinceaux, on a peint le portrait d'un pape Borgia, Alexandre VI (On retrouve le même grand nez sur son portrait officiel et cette miniature!). Il a été Pape de 1492 à 1503. De son vrai nom, Rodrigo Borgia, on lui connut au moins quatre enfants, dont Cesare et Lucrezia Borgia. Les marges de ce même feuillet sont ornées d'un beau décor floral et de deux écussons d'armes. Impression en rouge et noir, musique imprimée sur cinq portées et initiales gravées. Nombreuses grandes initiales peintes en rouge ou bleu. Ce volume est une prouesse typographique puisque chaque feuillet a nécessité deux passages sous la presse, le noir a été imprimé en premier, puis le rouge. Les portées de musique sont en rouge et les neumes en noir. Seconde édition incunable, la première chez même imprimeur en 1485. Ce sont les deux seules du XVe siècle. L'ouvrage contient les cérémonies et sacrements conduits par les éveques. Provenance : Les deux écussons peints dans les marges, sont probablement espagnols ou portugais. Un blason piriforme porte cinq châteaux d'or et un autre est d'or à la bande d'azur surmonté d'une mître d'évêque, avec la mention "dni nri ihu xpi mi absit gloa nisi in " [ Mihi absit gloriari nisi in cruce domini nostri Jesus Christi (Saint Paul, Epitre aux Galates)]. Auréoles d'humidité dans la marge inférieure des premiers feuillets, quelques manques de cuir à la reliure (coiffes, petits … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marsilio Ficino
Basel: J. Amerbach 1497. 4to (20,5 x 14,0 cm). 100 unn lvs. Two types; 25:87R and 26:148G. 33 lines to the page. Minuscules for initials. Later binding, covers with old antiphon leaf. De Triplici Vita, also known as De Vita Libri Tres (Three books of life) was the first time published in 1489 by Antonio Miscomini from Florence (GW 9882). This influential neoplatonic work on how to maintain health and vigor, is a rather curious mixture of different sciences of those times as e.g. medicine (Ficino was a physician to Cosimo), astrology, magic, hermeticism and philosophy. The first book "De vita sana &c" is the first work on the special health problems of scholars. The third book, "De vita coelitus &c", on the heavenly influences on man's life, discusses the influence of the planets on the intellectual's health, his body as well as his mind. Marsilio Ficino was an Italian humanist, neoplatonist, philosopher and head of the Academia Platonica, a refounding of Plato's Academy by Ficino's patron Cosimo de Medici in Florence. He translated Plato's entire corpus in Latin. This is the 4th edition of this work and the 2nd printed by Amerbach. It contains 3 tracts, as indicated on the first 4 lines of leaf aiii-r. Two contemp. handwritten ex-libri in ink. A great number of conttemp. marginal annotations in ink. First and last leaf bit fingermarked and stained, a few leaves with unobtrusive marginal dampstaining. A fine, very well-preserved incunable in attractive binding.

Melanchthon, Philip] Camerarius, Joachim.
Octavo. [20] pp 1-419 [1] pp 420-23 [18] Seiten. Hardcover. Wunderbare, lackierte Ganzlederausgabe des späten 18.Jahrhunderts / Frühen 19.Jahrhunderts, mit Verzierungen von Bayntun Riviere. Sehr guter Zustand mit nur wenigen Gebrauchsspuren. Einige Annotationen von alter Hand. Philip Melanchthon (Philippus Melanchthon) (16 February 1497 19 April 1560), born Philipp Schwartzerdt, was a German reformer, collaborator with Martin Luther, the first systematic theologian of the Protestant Reformation, intellectual leader of the Lutheran Reformation, and an influential designer of educational systems. He stands next to Luther and Calvin as a reformer, theologian, and molder of Protestantism. Along with Luther, he is the primary founder of Lutheranism. They both denounced what they believed was the exaggerated cult of the saints, asserted justification by faith, and denounced the coercion of the conscience in the sacrament of penance by the Catholic Church, that they believed could not offer certainty of salvation. In unison they rejected transubstantiation, the belief that the bread from the Lord's Supper becomes Christ's body when consecrated. Melanchthon made the distinction between law and gospel the central formula for Lutheran evangelical insight. By the "law", he meant God's requirements both in Old and New Testament the "gospel" meant the free gift of grace through faith in Jesus Christ. He was born Philipp Schwartzerdt (of which "Melanchthon" is a Greek translation) on 16 February 1497, at Bretten, near Karlsruhe, where his father Georg Schwarzerdt was armorer to Philip, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Locher, Johann Georg.
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.

Plinius Secundus, Caius.
Folio. 268 ff. Contemporary vellum with ms. title to spine. Fine incunabular edition of Pliny's famous encylopedic work, covering the entire field of ancient knowledge. With his "Natural History", Pliny gives a mathematical and physical description of the world, discusses geography, ethnography, anthropology, human physiology, zoology, botany, mineralogy, sculpture and painting. As "a purveyor of information both scientific and nonscientific, Pliny holds a place of exceptional importance in the tradition and diffusion of culture" (DSB). Through the present work Pliny "gives us by far the most detailed account of the coast of the United Arab Emirates that has come down to us. Chapter 32 of Book 6 (§ 149-152), beginning near the Qatar peninsula, proceeds to describe the Emirates islands, tribes, and coast right up to the Musandam peninsula, before continuing on south along the coast of Oman. As such, it is a mine of invaluable information on the UAE in the late pre-Islamic era" (UAE History, online). Pliny "completed his 'Natural History' in 77 AD and, to judge from his account of the peoples and places of south-eastern Arabia [...], the area of the UAE was full of settlements, tribes, and physical features, the names of which he recorded for posterity" (Ghareeb/Al Abed 54). - "This appears to be the first edition of Barbarus' recension, the note of a 1496 edition by the same printer being probably due to a confusion (Hain 13099)" (BMC).

Zt. m. einer Schließe. Eine von vermutlich nur vier Inkunabelausgaben dieses Textes; die zweite bei Johann Amerbach (zuerst 1485), der eine Abschrift besaß. - Amerbach (1443-1513), Magister Artium der Pariser Sorbonne, gründete seine Offizin 1477 und nahm zuerst als Schüler, dann als Partner (1491-1513) Johannes Froben auf. Er war Ästhet und Wissenschaftler genug, um seinen Drucken besondere Sorgfalt bezüglich Ausstattung und Genauigkeit angedeihen zu lassen - wie auch vorliegendes Beispiel zeigt. - Die „Institutis“ (Über die Mönchserziehung und über Heilmittel gegen die acht Hauptsünden) des Predigers Johannes Cassianus (ca. 360-435) sind Produkt seiner in Palästina und Ägypten gemachten Erfahrungen als Eremit; sie sollten in der Folge quasi kanonisiert die Lehre der acht Kardinallaster begründen. Außer den hier ebenfalls enthaltenen „Collationes“ (wohl fingierte philosophische Unterredungen mit ägyptischen Mönchen) verfaßte Cassianus noch eine gegen Nestorios gerichtete Schrift über die Natur Christi. Cassianus, begonnen als Mönch in Bethlehem, gründete um 414 in Marseille ein Mönchs- und Nonnenkloster und wird dort als Heiliger verehrt. - Einband leicht berieben bzw. bestoßen.

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. In - folio, pergamena recente. 132 ff. (l' ultimo bianco mancante). Tipi: 180G, 92G, 74G. Stampa a due colonne con iniziali ornate incise in legno. 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)."

Cassianus, Johannes.
Basel, Johann Amerbach, 1497. 4°. Durchg. mit zahlr. in Rot eingemalten Initialen. 220 nn. Bll. (Got. Type [vereinzelt eine griech. Type], 2 Spalten, 49-50 Zeilen), Blindgepr. Kalbsldr.-Bd. d. Zt. m. einer Schließe. Eine von vermutlich nur vier Inkunabelausgaben dieses Textes; die zweite bei Johann Amerbach (zuerst 1485), der eine Abschrift besaß. - Amerbach (1443-1513), Magister Artium der Pariser Sorbonne, gründete seine Offizin 1477 und nahm zuerst als Schüler, dann als Partner (1491-1513) Johannes Froben auf. Er war Ästhet und Wissenschaftler genug, um seinen Drucken besondere Sorgfalt bezüglich Ausstattung und Genauigkeit angedeihen zu lassen - wie auch vorliegendes Beispiel zeigt. - Die „Institutis“ (Über die Mönchserziehung und über Heilmittel gegen die acht Hauptsünden) des Predigers Johannes Cassianus (ca. 360-435) sind Produkt seiner in Palästina und Ägypten gemachten Erfahrungen als Eremit; sie sollten in der Folge quasi kanonisiert die Lehre der acht Kardinallaster begründen. Außer den hier ebenfalls enthaltenen „Collationes“ (wohl fingierte philosophische Unterredungen mit ägyptischen Mönchen) verfaßte Cassianus noch eine gegen Nestorios gerichtete Schrift über die Natur Christi. Cassianus, begonnen als Mönch in Bethlehem, gründete um 414 in Marseille ein Mönchs- und Nonnenkloster und wird dort als Heiliger verehrt. - Einband leicht berieben bzw. bestoßen.

Provenance: with Lathrop Harper, cat. 239 (1984), no. 5; Helmut N. Friedlaender, bookplate. *** Third (dated) Latin edition of the Ship of Fools, the most influential satire of the humanist movement. "The most important of a long line of moralizing works in which the weaknesses and vices of mankind are satirized as follies" (Printing and the Mind of Man 37), Brant's Ship of Fools relates the sea voyage to "Narragonia" of 100 fools, including representatives of every human and social type, not excepting the writer (in a chapter titled "On the uselessness of books"). First published in German in 1494, the poem was devoured by the reading public, inspiring the rapid appearance of unauthorized or counterfeit editions and imitations throughout Europe.

Cremona - MAZZOLINI DE PRIERIO Silvester
De Darleriis Carolus, 1497. in - 4, ff. (320), legatura del 700. p. pergamena rigida, tit. ms. al dorso. Testo su due colonne in semigotico, spazio bianco per le iniziali. Foglio 1 recto, titolo: "Egregium vel potius divinum opus in Johannem Capreolum tholosanum sacri / predicatorum ordinis. A fratre Silvestro prieriano eiusdem ordinis.. seu / additamentis complectentibus..". Al v. del titolo lettera dedicatoria dell'autore al nobile vicentino Giovanni Portensis senior. Prima edizione di questo raro incunabolo cremonese, una delle poche edizioni del XV secolo impresse in questa città. L'opera vuole essere un compendio, accompagnato da commento ed aggiunte, delle opere di teologia e filosofia tomistica di Giovanni Capreolo (1380 - 1444), il grande teologo domenicano, detto il "Princeps Thomistrarum", e spesso "Tholosanus" per essere stato reggente degli studi nel convento di Tolosa. Silvestro Mazzolini nacque nel 1456 o 1457 a Prierio, nelle vicinanze di Ceva, in provincia di Cuneo, Ducato di Savoia; entrò nell'Ordine di S. Domenico, insegnò a Bologna, ove ebbe come discepolo Leandro Alberti, a Pavia, a Roma, invitatovi da Papa Giulio II; dal 1515 fu nominato Maestro del Sacro Palazzo, carica che ricoprì fino al 1523, anno della morte. Oltre che di teologia, i suoi scritti riguardano l' astronomia ("In teoricas planetarum",), magia e demonologia ("De strigimagarum daemonumque mirandis libri tres", "Tractatulus quid a diabolo sciuscitari"), il primato papale (fu probabilmente il primo teologo ad attaccare pubblicamente la dottrina di Matin Lutero col quale ebbe una lunga cont … [Click Below for Full Description]

PETRARCA Francesco
Zani Bartolomeo, 1497. 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 cui sovente si trova una sola d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andrea MANTEGNA (Isola di Cartura 1431 - Mantova 1506)
1497. 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 rar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Grandi iniziali silogr. istoriate di modulo variabile; alla fine di ogni volume impresa tipogr. I quattro volumi contengono due importanti opere del filosofo e teologo francescano Duns Scotus (1265 - 1308): - vol. I) Scotus novissime cum emendatissimo codice parisino castigatus: Additis responsionibus ad argumenta locis suis: et annotationibus opinionum diversorum doctorum..; ff. 137, (1), di cui l'ultimo bianco alla fine del volume (A - O8, P10, Q - R8). - II) Scotus super secundo sententiarum; ff. 84 (A - K8, L4).

Locatellus ottenne il privilegio di stampare tutti i lavori di Scoto editi da Filippo Bagnacavallo; il lavoro fu completato intorno al 1496 - 97, tuttavia non fu possibile stamparlo prima del 1498 per via di una postilla del privilegio. Numerose annotazioni marginali e note di possesso di mani del Cinque - Seicento. Stampati su carta forte, a grandi margini.

Shorwell, Isle of Wight, 1497. This document is a manuscript lease for the manor of South Shorewell, made at Threxton the 8th day of May in the 13th year of the reign of King Henry VII (1497), in the county of Hampshire, written in a fifteenth-century set hand, which was the precursor to what became known as the secretary hand in England. It has been transcribed into modern English and with the original English text. Included is a transcription with expanded contractions by supplying the missing letters in italic. These are included with the document. Written in brown ink. Some spots of browning, fold marks, measuring approx. 9 ½" x 11 ½". South Shorwell or West Court Manor is one of three manor houses, along with Woolverton and Northcourt, that is located in Shorwell, in England's Isle of Wight. According to the Domesday Book, it was part of the possessions of Gozehne Fitz Azor, and had been held in the time of the Edward the Confessor by Ulnod in abeyance. At the time of the countess Isabella's record, we find that Sir John Lisle had this manor which he held by virtue of his service as a knight. Today it is a beautiful bed and breakfast on a spacious 200 acre property.

Savonarola, Girolamo.
Giovanni Stefano di Carlo da Pavia. Composed in 1497 and translated by the author himself from Latin into Italian shortly thereafter, this is Savonarola's => best and grandest work (Ridolfi), and one of his most popular, being endlessly reprinted until the 18th century. A letter from Domenico Benivieni, a Florentine priest, introduces this edition, which is comprised of four books defending Savonarola's faith. An index at the end lists all the chapters, including "Che la religione christiana conuenienteme[n]te parla della pene de dannati" (Libro III, cap. vi), and "Che la Secta de Mahumetani e' tucta irrationabile" (Libro IV, cap. vii). The => elaborate title-page, which is printed in reverse fashion against a black background, features a woodcut border in eight compartments -- flora, armor, and mythical creatures adjoining and surmounting a shield left blank, flanked by two falcons, in the bottom compartment -- all framing the title and a large woodcut Crucifixion vignette with God the Father above Christ on the cross and angels surrounding Him. (A different, smaller Crucifixion woodcut beneath the colophon features Mary and John as witnesses/mourners.) The text is in Italian, printed in roman with elegant white-line initials in various sizes.

Predominantly Roman letter, little Greek; lower outer corner of title slightly soiled, very light marginal water stains. A very good copy in old vellum, recased, gilt title and author's name on front cover; five marginalia, including a scholarly cutting remark (slightly cropped), in same contemporary probably French hand at head of title ‘Est Meij Jo. Baptis. Loms[?]’. First edition of the earliest scholarly account of syphilis, by Niccolò Leoniceno (1428-1524), a very influential physician, botanist and scholar of the Italian Renaissance. A skilled student of Greek, Leoniceno taught in Padua before settling in the university and court of Ferrara. Here, he accomplished pioneering translations of the Greek classics, such as Arrian, Diodorus, Appian, Polybius, Cassius Dio and, first and foremost, a large part of Galen’s corpus. Over the course of his extraordinarily long life, Leoniceno was well acquainted with the most prominent scholars of his time, including Pico della Mirandola, Ermolao Barbaro and Angelo Poliziano. Lending Aldus Manutius some of his prized manuscripts, he took an active part in the Aldine Greek editions of Aristotle and Galen. In 1497, he published De morbo Gallico, following the epidemic in the Italian peninsula after the arrival of the French troops of Charles VIII. The book, dedicated to Gian Francesco Pico della Mirandola, corrects several mistakes of the Arabic medical tradition in identifying and naming diseases and proved that syphi … [Click Below for Full Description]
