        Omnia Opera Angeli Politiani, et alia quaedam lectu digna, quorum nomina in sequenti indice videre licet. ( In fine, f. 450 verso, colophon:) Venetiis, in aedibus Aldi Romani mense Iulio M.IID (Aldo Manuzio, 1498)

      Aldo, 1498. 2 vol. in - folio 8(mm.320x200), ff. 451 non num. (manca K4 bianco), impresso in carattere. romano, con passaggi in greco ed ebraico (carattere usato da Aldo per la primissima volta). Legatura moderna in pieno vitello decorata in oro, eleganti astucci mezza pelle e tela. Editio princeps delle opere latine del grande umanista e filologo fiorentino, dedicata a Marin Sanudo, curata dal bolognese Alessandro Sarti e dallo stesso Aldo Manuzio, forse il primo tentativo di edizione collettiva di un autore loro contemporaneo (il Poliziano era morto da soli 4 anni). Di notevole rarità, valore ed importanza anche tipografica, in quanto vi è contenuto il primo specimen di carattere ebraico usato da Aldo ed è una delle più belle e monumentali edizioni uscite dalla stamperia aldina. Angelo Ambrogini, detto Poliziano (1454 - 1494), fu discepolo di Marsilio Ficino, amico di Aldo, di Pico della Mirandola e Raffaello, istitutore in casa di Lorenzo de Medici, dal cui mecenatismo fu sempre protetto. E' considerato ancor oggi il miglior poeta del Rinascimento italiano, tra il Boccaccio e l'Ariosto, e colui che meglio d'ogni altro espresse la concezione ideologica ed estetica dell'Umanesimo. Bell'esempl. a grandi margini.

      Minuziano Aless, 1498. 2 volumi in - folio, ff. (16, primo, e l'ultimo bianchi), 144, (2, di errata); ff. (18), 157, (1, bianco); 2 ff. inseriti dopo il f.n. 6, che contengono 2 lettere di Luigi XII. Legatura in mezza perg. secentesca per il primo vol., in piena pelle 800esca decorata a secco per il secondo. Seconda edizione degli Statuti di Milano, e prima degli Statuti riformati da Lodovico il Moro. Impressi con lo stesso elegante carattere (R.109) seppur a 4 anni di distanza: anche il primo volume, seppur senza indicazioni tipografiche, fu impresso da Ambrosius de Caponago per il Minuziano, letterato ed editore, il quale si servì di vari stampatori milanesi. Lodovico il Moro intraprese l'ultima riforma generale degli Statuti Civili, già riformati da Gian Galeazzo Visconti nel 1396. Gli aggiornamenti furono promulgati il 20 Ottobre 1498, ma l'occupazione francese, nonché la morte del Moro, interruppero il lavoro di revisione, che fu ultimato dal re di Francia Luigi XII d'Orléans; i senatori ed i giureconsulti incaricati terminarono l'opera il 23 aprile 1502. Opera di straordinaria importanza storica, giuridica e politica per la città di Milano e di insigne rarità a reperirsi completa delle due parti. Bell'esempl., fresco e con grandi margini; seppur in legatura non uniforme. Di notevole importanza, in quanto il primo vol. appartenne al giureconsulto Gregorio Panigarola, vicario generale del ducato, con note di appartenenza e chiose marginali di mano sua e del figlio Antonio; mentre il secondo volume reca sul primo f. num. un'iniziale dipinta con stemma dei Visconti, ed in basso un medaglione con ritratto di profilo di Ludovico il Moro, con estensioni nei margini (miniatura non coeva ma di notevole pregio decorativo).

        [drop-title] Expositione di frate Hieronymo da Ferrara sopra el Psalmo L, Miserere mei Deus.

      [Florence: Printer of the 'Caccia di Belfiore' Small 4to (18.7cm; 7.5"). [14] ff., with final blank.. after 23 May 1498] Vernacular, Italian translation of Savonarola’s highly personal commentary and meditation on "Miserere mei Deus," the Penitential Psalm (50 according to Septuagint numbering, 51 in Masoretic numbering), in which he implores God to "do what He will" to him (our translation, f. [13]r), accompanied on the final page by a => speech Savonarola delivered on the day of his execution, 23 May 1498, wrestling with his conscience and asking God, and everyone, to pardon the temporal and spiritual errors he had unwittingly committed — the priest's final sad statement following his having confessed, after standing three trials and under extreme torture, to crimes he originally believed and swore he did not commit, i.e., heresy and promoting schism within the government. Following the speech on the same page is Psalm 1 in Latin (first line) and Italian. Savonarola wrote this painful document in prison, completing it on or before 8 May 1498. Significantly one of the => most widely read and reprinted of Savonarola's works, it was in its original Latin version immediately distributed in Florence and quickly translated into Italian, this particularly early version at the instance of “certain devoted women” (our translation, f. [1]r). Indeed Giovannozzi lists a total of 32 printings in four languages from 1498 to 1581, ISTC noting of this one that it is "printed in a later state of the type associated with the Printer of the Caccia di Belfiore, who is identified as Lorenzo Morgiani and Johannes Petri by A. Tura, in La Bibliofilia 101 (1999) pp.1–16." => A neat, handsome incunable production. Provenance: Probably from Lathrop C. Harper (its binding style, see below). ISTC locates 8 copies in libraries in the U.S., 5 in Britain, 15 on the Continent, and 1 in Australia. 20th-century grey boards, lightly discolored, with caramel-color leather label on front board. Text very clean.

        OPERA

      Venice: Aldus Manutius, July, 1498. FIRST EDITION of the collected works n. This is an unsurpassable contemporary copy of a beautiful incunabular edition of a foundational work in the field of classical philology, written by the foremost classical scholar of the day and printed by one of the greatest humanist printers. In addition, this edition marks the first publication of the collected works of a modern author. Angelo Ambrogini Poliziano (1454-94) was the son of an Italian jurist who was killed defending the cause of the Medici. In recognition of this loyalty, Lorenzo the Magnificent took the young Poliziano under his wing, bringing him to Florence to be educated, and later making the talented young humanist a tutor to his son Piero. Poliziano was a groundbreaking scholar who had lasting influence on how we study and understand language and literature: Anthony Grafton tells us that he brought about nothing short of "a revolution in philological method" through his "conscious adoption of a new standard of accuracy and precision." Poliziano was adamant that the earliest available manuscript must be considered the most accurate, and he was scrupulous about identifying and citing sources. A significant portion of the text here represents another important innovation introduced by Poliziano: the use of lectures or essays to teach philology--a far more palatable alternative to the tedious line-by-line commentary employed by earlier scholars. Aldus Manutius did a brilliant job presenting the works of his fellow humanist in elegant roman and Greek typefaces, and the text here is notable for the first use of Hebrew type in Venice (on the recto of H8). Renouard considered this "one of the most beautiful" productions of the Aldine press. Having any 15th century artifact from Aldus' printshop is a special pleasure, and having a copy as tall and as nearly pristine as this one is a once-in-a-decade experience. The 1498 Politianus is not remarkably scarce, but it is very rarely seen textually complete, without inserted leaves, and in a contemporary binding (ABPC lists such a copy in 2005 but nothing previously until 1984). At 335 x 220 mm., our copy is larger than any we have found among various institutional copies as well as those recently in the marketplace: the Nakles copy that sold at Christie's New York (in modern morocco) for $32,900 in 2000 was 313 x 205 mm., and the contemporary copy trumpeted by Christie's as "A LARGE COPY" that sold in 2005 for a sterling price in excess of $36,000 still measured significantly smaller than ours at 324 x 210 mm. The provenance here is also of some interest. Holding an office called fiscal of the bishop, our early owner Gervais Sopher (d. 1556) represented the interests of the diocese of Strassburg and prosecuted ecclesiastical offenses. In that position, he leveled 24 charges of heresy in 1522 against Matthieu Zell, the first open proponent of Lutheranism in Strassburg. However, by 1525, Sopher's fervor had apparently subsided to the point where he himself embraced the reformed religion (and not coincidentally a wife).. 335 x 220 mm. (13 1/4 x 8 1/2"). [452] leaves. Single column, 38 lines, roman type.Edited by Alexander Sartius. FIRST EDITION of the collected works. Original pigskin-backed wooden boards, the pigskin on the covers decorated with four foliate rolls, raised bands, apparently original hardware (two pigskin thongs with brass clasps, catch-plates, and anchor-plates) ink titling and shelf numbers on spine and fore edge. Front pastedown with early ink ownership inscription in Latin of Gervais Sopher (see below), indicating that the book was purchased on 18 October 1512 at a cost of four gold coins; occasional neat underlinings and calligraphic marginalia in two early hands. Ahmanson-Murphy 23; Renouard 17:4; Goff P-886; BMC V, 559. Pigskin trivially soiled, one corner slightly gnawed, first and last gatherings with a scattering of small wormholes, one leaf lightly foxed, four leaves with insignificant marginal stains, but A MAGNIFICENT COPY, THE TEXT ESPECIALLY FRESH, CLEAN, AND BRIGHT, THE MARGINS EXCEPTIONALLY BROAD, AND THE ORIGINAL BINDING IN OUTSTANDING CONDITION.

Collection of the New York Bar Association. ISTC # ig00477500; Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke Index (11495) By the Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke Index, the earliest effort by Baptista de Tortis on the Decretals was a joint printing with Franciscus de Madiis in 1484. Tortis made a sole issue again in 1486, 1489, 1491, 1494, 1496, and 1498 (the last, this copy, is with the number 11495 in the Gesamtkatalog). In 1498, Andreas Torresansus and Baptista de Tortis both produced editions of the Decretals, March fourth and October tenth respectively. Tortis still revised further, and another copy appeared in September 1499 and a final in 1500. Other glosses of the Decretals gain printing interest in Venice after 1500, but Tortis, by far, made the largest contribution, especially of the Venetians, during the late fifteenth century. This is a beautifully produced Venetian incunable that was refined over a period of intense printing activity and interest in the text.

        POMPONII MELAE COSMOGRAPHI DE SITU ORBIS

      [Venice, 1498. Small quarto. 19th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Boards lightly edgeworn and rubbed, small separation at lower joint of front board. Bookplate of David P. Wheatland and Kenneth Nebenzahl on front pastedown. Small inkstain in upper margin of first four gatherings. Early manuscript notes on four pages, including at the colophon. Very good. Eighth edition, and the third edited by Barbarus, of the most popular geography text of the Renaissance. Pomponius Mela is often taken as an accurate sum of European geographical knowledge before the discovery of the New World. Mela's text is the earliest surviving Latin work on geography, and the only Roman treatise devoted exclusively to that subject. Barbarus, the editor of this edition, was a professor of philosophy at Padua and Venice. The publications of Mela and Ptolemy were incentives for further exploration, and in particular Mela's descriptions of Africa were used by the Portuguese navigators who were venturing far out into the Atlantic for the first time. This edition was issued just five years after Columbus returned to Spain from his first voyage to the New World.

        Comoediae Novem

      Apud Aldum, Venice 1498 - EDITIO PRINCEPS. Folio. 346 unnumbered leaves, lacking two blanks. Text in Aldus’ large Greek type 146, 41 lines of scholia surrounding in smaller (type114), Aldus’ preface in Roman. Woodcut strap-work initials in two sizes and headpieces. Early Greek marginalia in brown ink mostly to first quarter of volume. Title page very slightly soiled and strengthened at gutter, two leaves slightly browned (probably damp at printing), couple of minor marginal tears, last leaf with small old marginal repairs, strengthened at gutter, slightly soiled on verso. A very good copy, crisp, clean and well margined in C17 vellum over boards C18 mottling, gilt red morocco labels and gilt thistle motif on spine, C19 ms. bibl. notes on front pastedown, Walter Hirst’s charming bookplate and Sir Thomas Philip’s pencilled shelf mark beneath, earlier ink lettering (press mark?) on rear pastedown, Quaritch pencil note beneath. A very handsome copy of the beautiful first printed edition of Aristophanes comprising the first nine plays (10 & 11 were not published till 1525) and one of the chef d’oeuvres of Aldus’ early Greek press. The editor was Marcus Musurus, the celebrated Greek humanist, who also contributed an excellent preface on the reasons for studying Greek and the stylistic beauty of Aristophanes. Aldus founded his career on the publication of Greek texts - the first printer to do so - with this type designed and cast on new principles which he perfected over a period of five years. To his scholarly care we owe more of the editiones principes of the major Greek classics than to any other printer and the Aristophanes, texturally and artistically, was one of his finest achievements. Aristophanes was the greatest of the Athenian comic dramatists and one of her greatest poets. For richness and fertility of imagination probably only Shakespeare is comparable and Aristophanes’ direct influence on English literature was considerable; the comedies of Jonson, Middleton and Fielding derive from him. Apart from constituting one of the surviving glories of hellenic culture Aristophanes’ comedies are an invaluable source for its social history. His surviving plays - out of a probable forty or fifty - provide us with an accurate if satirical commentary on the political, religious, sexual, economical and domestic life of Athens over a period of thirty six years. His changes in style and content match the concurrent constitutional and social changes in the State itself. The plays’ themes are invariably contemporary, a mocking mirror to the condition of the city. This edition has the benefit of the scholia of Thomas Magister, John Tzetzes and Demetrius Triclinus themselves incorporating much of the more ancient commentaries of Appolonius, Callimaches, Didymus and others, which were superseded in later editions by much newer but also much inferior work.

        Meditationes vitae Christi

      Augsburg: [12] March [14]68. Super-chancery folio (293 x 217 mm). Collation: [110 2-48 5-710 88] (1/1 blank, 1/2r table, 1/3r text, 8/8v colophon). 71 (of 72, without first blank) leaves, text of 1/9 printed on 1/10 and vice versa. 35 lines, table in two columns. Type: 1:117G. Augsburg illumination: opening initial in gold with orange and yellow ribbon infill and three-quarter border of intertwining foliate extensions incorporating leaves, fruits and flowers in maroon, green, blue, purple and red, and with gold bezants with red filigree tendrils; 2-line pearled Lombard initials supplied in red, paragraph marks, underlining of chapter headings, and capital strokes in red. Variant readings on 1/3r, line 1 as GW main entry; 4/5r, line 1 as GW Anm. Small vellum strips from a 15th-century ms. on vellum affixed to upper inner margins of all sheets in quire 6 and to upper and lower inner margins of bifolia 7/1.10 and 7/2.9, for an unknown purpose. 20th-century brown pigskin over wooden boards stamped in blind to a imitate a 15th-century binding, single fore-edge clasp, modern cloth box. Provenance: a few neat 16th- and 18th-century marginalia (a few washed); Hieronymus Baumgartner (1498-1565), woodcut armorial bookplate (Warnecke 139) preserved on front pastedown; unidentifed later monastic inscription (washed) on first page (Monasterij Gru?? or Gei??).*** first edition of this widely influential medieval devotional text; the first dated book printed in augsburg, an excellent, wide-margined copy. Although it incorporates a genuine Bonaventuran tract (Meditationes de passione), the bulk of this spiritual narrative of the life of Christ was the work of an unknown Tuscan Franciscan of the early decades of the 14th century. One of the most beloved and influential writings of the Franciscan movement, the work has been called the "culminating point" of pseudo-Bonaventuran literature (Dictionnaire de Spiritualité I, 1848). The impact of the text can scarcely be overstated: not only did it exert a profound and lasting influence on devotional literature and mystery plays until well into the seventeenth century, but specific and significant iconographic imagery in art has been traced directly to it: such images as the Virgin adoring the Christ child on her knees, or the appearance of Christ to the Virgin after the Resurrection, being first explicitly described in the present text. The authorship of the text, which was probably originally written in Latin (cf. Verfasserlexikon 2 6:284), has not been settled. Recent attributions to Johannes de Caulibus and Johannes de Laudibus are without foundation. Widely read and translated in Italy and to a lesser degree in France and England (where it circulated under the title Speculum vitae Christi), the text was hardly known in Germany and the Low Countries, where its role as principal guide to contemplation of the divine mysteries was filled by the closely related Vita Christi of Ludolphus of Saxony. Of 66 recorded incunable editions this first edition was one of only four printed in Germany. Unlike most later incunable editions, Zainer's edition, which contains the complete text (in 95 chapters instead of 40), follows the manuscript tradition in presenting the text anonymously, with no attribution to Bonaventura. No further Latin editions are known to have appeared until the mid 1480?'s, when Antoine Caillaut reprinted the text in Paris, attributing it to Bonaventure. Günther Zainer of Reutlingen and his brother Johann, Ulm's prototypographer, lived in Strassburg in the early 1460s, and both circumstantial and typographic evidence point to the likelihood that the two worked for Johann Mentelin. Günther Zainer maintained commercial relations with his native city: several of his early editions, the present included, are printed on Reutlingen paper, watermarked with Crossed Keys, the arms of the city. Zainer produced nearly 100 editions, of scholastic works, classical texts, popular religious texts, grammars and almanacs. Certain visual and textual characteristics of early Augsburg printing were established by Zainer: typefaces influenced both by the Italian founts and by the local scribal tradition, a predilection for woodcut initials and illustrations (whose use was for a time forbidden to letterpress printers by the woodcutters' guilds), and a fairly large representation of vernacular texts (cf. Geldner I, p.134). The illuminated border of this copy and the red capital strokes are typical of Augsburg work; the spiral initial I and gold bezants recall the style of the scribe and illuminator Heinrich Molitor, the most important and influential of several local illuminators who worked closely with Gunther Zainer (and the other early Augsburg printers) in his capacity as illuminator for the Benedictine monasteries of Tegernsee and Scheyern and for Peter von Schaumburg, the reforming archbishop of Augsburg (cf. J. McQuillen, ?" Fifteenth-Century Book Networks: Scribes, Illuminators, Binders and the Introduction of print,?" Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America 107:4 (2013):494-515, esp. pp. 503-6; and E. König, ?"Augsburger Buchkunst an der Schwelle zur Frühdruckzeit?", Augsburger Buckdruck und Verlagswesen (1997):172-200, esp. p. 187). The identity of the first owner of this volume is sadly no longer identifiable, its binding having been replaced and the inscription on the first leaf effaced. The copy bears the bookplate of the Nürnberger patrician and statesman Hieronymus Baumgartner, a powerful proponent of the Reformation. Baumgartner's engagement with Protestant education at all levels led him to support the foundation, in 1526, of what became known as the Melanchthon-Gymnasiums, and is the origin of his crucial involvement with the Nürnberger Stadtbibliothek, to which he bequeathed a large part of his library.

        De Divina Proportione

      Aboca Edizioni[Facsimile - Pacioli] Il manoscritto De divina proportione di Luca Pacioli è uno straordinario compendio di matematica, architettura, teologia e filosofia del Rinascimento. Redatto nel 1498, in lingua volgare per favorirne la comprensione e la diffusione, si compone di quattro parti: nella prima, dopo aver celebrato l'importanza della matematica, l'Autore tratta anche di teologia, di filosofia e di musica; introduce la proporzione divina spiegando che è divina perchè per noi incomprensibile, magica, sovrumana: "Commo Idio propriamente non se po diffinire ne per parolle a noi intendere, così questa nostra proportione non se po mai per numero intendibile asegnare, né per quantità alcuna rationale exprimere, ma sempre fia occulta e secreta e da lì mathematici chiamata irrationale". Nella seconda parte espone il libro XIII degli elementi di Euclide e la genesi dei 5 corpi geometrici regolari. Nella terza descrive i corpi dei poliedri regulari e dependenti, con considerazioni filosofiche tratte dal Timeo di Platone. Nella quarta, i corpi oblonghi (piramidi, coni e parallelepipedi) con le regole pratiche per il calcolo della superficie e del volume. L'opera ha suscitato e susciterà profondo interesse non solo negli ambienti matematici, ma anche nell'ambiente dell'arte pittorica e dell'architettura. Selezione di tavole disegnate da Leonardo da Vinci "a tutti gli ingegni interessati alla filosofia, alla pittura, scultura, architettura, musica e alle altre discipline matematiche" Luca Pacioli. Del manoscritto De divina proportione di Luca Pacioli esistono due soli esemplari originali nel mondo. Uno è conservato nella Biblioteca Ambrosiana di Milano (ms. 170 sup.), l'altro nella Biblioteca Universitaria di Ginevra (ms. Langues Etrangères 210). Il trattato nasce dalla volontà dell'Autore di diffondere la conoscenza delle proprietà del numero aureo e delle nuove esperienze algebriche e geometriche dell'epoca. Il suo pregio è quello di raccogliere e spiegare gli studi sull'argomento, tenendo in gran considerazione le lezioni di Piero della Francesca. Il trattato di Ginevra, il più importante in quanto preparato per il duca Ludovico il Moro, non era mai stato riprodotto in facsimile a causa di evidenti danni da microrganismi; un sapiente lavoro di restauro virtuale ha permesso una fedele ricostruzione del testo, dei seducenti poliedri disegnati da Leonardo da Vinci e delle splendide miniature esclusive, che potranno così essere ammirate nella loro bellezza originale. Concedendosi una "licenza artistica e legatoriale", Aboca Museum ha sostituito la coperta moderna del volume originale con quella che, in una miniatura dell'opera, viene rappresentata nella scena del dono a Ludovico il Moro.Un facsimile di gran pregio, che impreziosisce le migliori collezioni.

With 1 printed uncial initial and one space with a guide letter intended for a manuscript initial that has not been added. Set in rotunda gothic types, with a few headings in textura and occasional words in a Greek type in the pre-Aldine style. Brown half morocco (ca. 1900).

      NCC (The Hague copy); Nijhoff & Kronenberg 305 (The Hague copy); USTC (The Hague & Brussels copies); WorldCat (The Hague copy); not in BMC STC Dutch. Third copy located of a Deventer post-incunable edition of one of the most elegantly written Latin schoolbooks from the turn of the 15th century, first published at Bologna by Benedict Hector in 1498. It teaches children through comprehensive and entertaining stories based on proverbs and sayings of the Seven Wise Men. Fillipo Beroaldo, the elder (1453-1505), a celebrated Italian literary author, opened a school at Bologna when he was only 19 years old. He taught at Parma and Milan, and later at Paris University, where he inspired French youth for classical literature. He was recalled to Bologna to take the chair in literature at the University. He remained there until his death. Beroaldo edited a large number of classical authors, which made him famous throughout Europe, but the present attractively composed schoolbook received no less fame, being published in the early 16th century at Paris, Deventer, Basel and many other cities. Although the USTC lists copies at the Royal Libraries in The Hague and Brussels, the former also reported in the other references, it adds a note: "no known surviving copy". The copy at The Hague certainly survives, however, and the catalogue of the Brussels library lists its copy with no indication that it is lost.With a few contemporary manuscript notes in the margins. Slightly thumbed and some marginal restorations in the first and last leaf, but still in good condition.

        De orbibus libri quattuor.

      Bologna, Benedictus Hectoris 1498 - In-folio [304 x 210 mm]. Collation : 51, (1) ff., [a-h6, i4]. Veau brun, dos à nerfs, encadrements sur les plats. (Reliure récente dans le genre de l'époque.) Première édition de ce très rare incunable d'astronomie. Alessandro Achillini (1463-1512), professeur à l'Université de Bologne, a très certainement compté parmi ces élèves Nicolas Copernic qui étudia à Bologne de 1496 à 1501. Surnommé le "second Aristote", Achillini se livre à une attaque virulente de l'astronomie de Ptolémée. Partisan d'Averroes, de nombreuses fois cité dans cet ouvrage, il expose le systéme des sphères homocentriques. Les efforts de tous les "Averroïstes" de cette période pour restaurer l'astronomie des sphères homocentriques a été un stimulus certain pour le progrès de l'astronomie. Ils habituèrent les esprits à ne plus considérer le système géocentrique de Ptolémée comme le seul possible, ni comme le meilleur. Cet ouvrage a donc été publié durant le séjour de Copernic à Bologne. C'est aussi à Bologne que Copernic fait sa première observation astronomique connue, une occultation d'Aldébaran, en 1497 avec Domenica Mara Novara. Exemplaire annoté par un érudit de l'époque. On trouve une trentaine de notes à la plume dans les marges et de très nombreux passages soulignés. Ces notes qui corrigent le texte, ajoutent quelques mots à l'aide de renvois ou donnent des commentaires. Ce volume a donc été lu et étudié avec beaucoup d'attention par un savant de l'époque, dont l'identité serait intéressante à découvrir. Cachet ou signature gratté sur le titre. Très rare. Goff A-37. GW 191. BMC XII, 60. ISTC : ia00037000. Klebs 7.1. First edition of this very are astronomical incunabula. Alessandro Achillini, "the second Aristotle", had most probably Nicolas Copernicus amongst his pupils. "Copernicus would have been aware of the presence at Bologna of one of the most celebrated philosophers in Italy, 'the second Aristotle', Alessandro Achillini who published a scathing Averroist attack on Ptolemy while Copernics was resident at the university. In his 'De orbibus", published at Bologna in 1498, Achillini presents Averroes's three main routes to negative conclusions about Ptolemy. The first is from the uniqueness of the centre of the world - the Ptolameic tradition introduces unacceptably many different centres. The second is from the nature of the celestials bodies, which could not be perfect spheres if they were made into orbs corresponding to epycycles and eccentrics, and would also require the introduction of physically superfluous bodies to exclude vacua. A third group of arguments begins from the consideration that circular motions define a single centre. (.) Achillini proposes to save the planetary motions, and explain eclipses and the waxing of the Moon 'without penetration of bodies, whithout vacua', and 'without divisions' in the substances of heavens. Before giving a basic homocentric construction of nested spheres with offset axes, he sketches theoricae for the planets, Sun and Moon. These are not detailed models but are largely concerned with the times of revolution for the major homocentric spheres. Achillini concludes with a rebuttal of opposing positions conducted in the manner of a disputation, for exemple that stationnary points and retrogressions can only be accommodated by epicycles or eccentrics. His discussion does not employ mathematical arguments like those found in the Ptolameic tradition, but he shows himself to be well versed in the technical details of Ptolemaic astronomy which he attacks broadly and at its foundations. At least one recent writer [Mario di Bono] has suggested that Copernicus may have been obliged to attend Achillini's lectures. We may adduce further reasons from the changes in Copernicus' s course of study. (.) The challenge of reconciling astronomy and natural philosophy was the central challenge of the Averroists to the Ptolemaic tradition. This challenge was longstanding, but it was raised particularly acutely and by hig [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Quaestiones in libros metaphysicae Aristotelis.

      Venice, Simon Bevilaqua 1498 - In-folio [303 x 205 mm]. Collation : (204) ff. Basane brune, plats estampés à froid, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure du XVIe siècle.) Edition princeps. Ces commentaires sur la "Métaphysique" d'Aristote, l'un des sommets de la philosophie occidentale, sont rédigés sous forme de questions et de réponses. A noter que le terme de "métaphysique" n'est jamais employé dans les quatorze livres publiés sous ce titre. Aristote emploie le terme de "philosophie première", la science des causes premières. Paolo Barbo, un des plus fameux théologien de son temps, était un thomiste convaincu. Né à Soncini, mort entre 1494 et 1499, il a enseigné la philosophie à Milan puis à Ferrare, Sienne et Bologne. Il devint par la suite prieur d'un monastère à Cremone. On a de lui des commentaires sur les textes d'Aristote et de Pierre Lombard. Il a aussi édité les 'Opuscula' de Thomas d'Acquin en 1488. L'imprimeur Simon Bevilaqua (1450-1518) se nommait Simone Gabi. Il signait sous ce nom les premiers livres qu'il a imprimé, à Vicenza. Installé à Venise, il utilisa son pseudonyme de "Bevilaqua", que certains lui aurait donné à cause de son penchant marqué pour le vin. Travaux de vers en marge intérieure des quatre premiers feuillets de table sans atteinte au texte, traces d'humidité dans la marge supérieure en début et fin d'ouvrage. Complet du dernier feuillet qui est blanc. Manques aux coiffes, reliure frottée. Bel exemplaire dans une reliure très décorative du XVIe siècle, probablement espagnole. GW M30270. ISTC ip00208000. Goff P-208. Not in BMC. Editio princeps. Paolo Barbo, born at Soncini, died between 1494 and 1499. His age called him "the most glorious theologian, and the eternal ornament of the order of preachers." He taught philosophy at Milan, and then at Ferrara, Siena, and Bologna. Finally he beccame prior of the monastery at Cremona. He wrote commentaries on Paulus Lombardus and Aristoteles and edited the 'Opuscula' of Thomas Aquinas in 1488.

        Vocabularium Iuris [Vocabularius Juris Utriusque]

      , 1498. 1498. Fifteenth-Century Venetian Imprint of an Important Law Dictionary in a Handsome Contemporary Binding [Jodocus of Erfurt, Attributed]. Vocabularium Iuris. [Venice: Bernardini Stagninus de Tridino, 1498]. 73 ff. Text in parallel columns. Collation: A-B6, C7, D-M6. Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary half-calf with elaborate blind tooling over wooden boards, raised bands to spine, clasps lacking, buckles present, earlier liturgical musical manuscript on vellum used as endpapers, leaves from an earlier manuscript used as pastedows, early hand-lettered title to head of text block. A few cracks to spine, small chip to head. Text printed in 71-line Gothic type on wide-margined paper, large woodcut capital at beginning of text. Light toning to text, faint dampspotting to a few leaves. Later annotations to front pastdown, partially erased early owner signature to title page, interior otherwise clean. * A work of great authority, the Vocabularius, as it is popularly known, is attributed occasionally to Jacobus of Erfurt. First published around 1474 in Basel, it went through more than seventy editions over the following 150 years. (It had a second life as the first section of the 1559 edition of Elio Antonio de Nebrija's Lexicon Juris Civilis, a work that was reissued into the seventeenth century.) A useful and highly respected reference work, the Vocabularius is a collection of terms dealing with the Ius Commune taken from such late- scholastic texts as the Vocabularius Stuttgardiensis (1432), the Collectio Terminorum Legalium (c. 1400) and the Introductorium pro Studio Sacrorum Canonum of Hermann von Schildesch (c. 1330). OCLC locates 1 copy of this imprint in North America (at the University of Michigan Law Library). We located other copies at George Washington University and UNC-Chapel Hill. The collation listed in the GW indicates 6 leaves in Gathering C and a page count of 74 ff. Our copy is complete, however, matching the collations of the copies held at GWU, Michigan and UNC.

      New York: Dauber & Pine Bookshops, Inc.. New York: Dauber & Pine Bookshops, Inc. 1498. () [4]. Very good. Quarto. Original leaf from the Golden Legend mounted and bound into quarter leather and marbled paper-covered leaf book. Gilt and brown morocco spine label to front board.

Darin auch als Erstdruck vier Predigten von Meister Eckhart, gefolgt vom "Meisterbuch" des "Großen Gottesfreundes aus dem Oberland" Rulman Merswin: "die hystorien des erwirdige docters Johannes Thauleri". Erste Ausgabe.

      Leipzig, Conrad Kachelofen, 17. III. 1498.. 8 Bll., fol. 281 (recte 282; 6 Bl. in Faksimile). 4° (19 x 13,5 cm). Blindgepr. Kalbslederband d. Z. auf Holzdeckeln, mit 3 Bünden und 2 Messing-Leder-Schließen.. GW M45246; HC 15346; BSB-Ink T-62. Das Hauptwerk J. Taulers (ca. 1300-1361) mit 84 Predigten und das einzige mit sicherer Zuschreibung; Tauler war zusammen mit Seuse (Suso) in Köln (1325) Schüler Meister Eckharts; anders als diesem ist für Tauler entscheidend "die sittlich-religiöse Erneuerung durch das mystische Erlebnis" (Ziegenfuß II, 679f); durch diese Wendung der Mystik ins Praktische sowie seine Ablehnung der Werkgerechtigkeit wird er gelegentlich als Vorläufer Luthers betrachtet, der ihn hoch achtete. Entschiedener als Tauler wandte sich der Verfasser des Meisterbuches, der "Große Gottesfreund aus dem Oberland", gegen die Mißstände in der Kirche (ab fol. xxvl); es handelt sich bei ihm um Rulman Merswin (1307-82), einem Straßburger Patrizier, der als Biographie Taulers die Bekehrung eines gelehrten Theologen durch einen frommen Laien beschreibt, indem er vorgab, vom "Großen Gottesfreund" dazu Weisungen und Texte erhalten zu haben. "Um die Feststellung dieser geheimnsivollen Persönlichkeit (z. B. mit dem Einsiedler Johann von Chur, +1382, gleichgesetzt) haben sich Mit- und Nachwelt bemüht, bis Denifle den Nachweis führte, daß der "Große Gottesfreund" mit R. M. identisch sei und es sich also um einen groß angelegten und folgerichtig durchgeführten Betrug handelte: Dasein und Schrifttum seines Meisters sind M.s eigene Erfindung." (RGG² III, 1027f). Der Lothringer Kaufmann K. Kachelofen (vermutl. 1450-1529) erwarb 1476 als "Contze Holtzhusen alias Kachelofen" das Leipziger Bürgerrecht; während seiner Druckertätigkeit (von 1487 bis 1516) avancierte er durch insgesamt über 400 Drucke zum bedeutensten Leipziger Inkunabeldrucker und begründete den Ruf Leipzigs als Buchstadt; zu seinen Titeln gehörten Almanache, Prognostiken, Grammatiken, Wörterbücher, Philosophie und Theologie, Akzidenzdrucke für Städte, Stände und Fürsten, antike und zeitgenössische Literatur, darunter in Deutsch "Der Ackermann von Böhmen" von Johann von Tepl (1490) wie auch die vorliegenden Predigten Taulers (vgl. NDB 10, 718f). Einband in neuerer Zeit unter Verwendung des meist erhalten gebliebenen Materials restauriert; Vorsätze fehlen; auf beiden Innendeckel mit Makulatur eines Pergament-Manuskriptes; 2 Bl. des Registrum (c7, c8) und 4 Bl. gegen Ende (fol. cclxxvi, cclxxvii, cclxxx, cclxxxi) durch Faksimiles ersetzt (vor allem kenntlich durch Siebrasterung des Büttenpapiers); fol. lx doppelt vergeben; Kopf knapp beschnitten; Titelblatt beidseitig mit zeitgenössischen Glossen in brauner Tinte; wenige weitere zeitgenössische Glossen oder Unterstreichungen; erste 3 Bl. und fol. cclxxix mit Wurmlöchern (teils Buchstabenverlust); erste 2 Bl. angerändert; zu Beginn gebräunt und etwas fleckig; bis fol. xlii mit schwachem Wasserrand.

        POMPONII MELAE COSMOGRAPHI DE SITU ORBIS

      [Venice: Simon de Bevilaqua, 1498].. [38] leaves. Eighteen woodcut initials. Small quarto. 19th-century three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Boards lightly edgeworn and rubbed, small separation at lower joint of front board. Bookplate of David P. Wheatland on front pastedown. Small inkstain in upper margin of first four gatherings. Early manuscript notes on four pages, including at the colophon. Very good. Eighth edition, and the third edited by Barbarus, of the most popular geography text of the Renaissance. Pomponius Mela is often taken as an accurate sum of European geographical knowledge before the discovery of the New World. Mela's text is the earliest surviving Latin work on geography, and the only Roman treatise devoted exclusively to that subject. Barbarus, the editor of this edition, was a professor of philosophy at Padua and Venice. The publications of Mela and Ptolemy were incentives for further exploration, and in particular Mela's descriptions of Africa were used by the Portuguese navigators who were venturing far out into the Atlantic for the first time. This edition was issued just five years after Columbus returned to Spain from his first voyage to the New World. GOFF M454. PROCTOR 5411. WALSH 2535. SHEPPARD 4491.

      (On colophon:) Hagenau, Henrich Gran for Johannes Rynman, 1498, 20. August. Small quarto. A copy with wide margins. Newer (late 19th century) brown half calf w. gilt red title label and gilt ornamentation to back. Corners bumped. First leaf a bit soiled and with many old owener's names. Repair to upper part of first leaf, due to worm-hole, far prom affecting printed text. The two following leaves with small worm-hole to upper margin, far from affecting text. Occasional soiling and minor brownspotting. Many leaves with contemporary marginal annotations and occasional contemporary underlinings. The marginal annotations have been fully preserved when the book was rebound, and the margins have not been cut. Printed in double columns with 34 lines to each, and headlines; rubricated throughout. (12 (being title and Tabula), 1 (blank), 139) ff. - i.e. with all 152 ff., including the blank, which has been lacking in other identified copies.. Exceedingly scarce incunable-edition (the first printed by Gran) of the first general handbook for parish priests, i.e. the first official parish handbook. Before Lochmaier's "Parrochiale curatorum", parish handbooks were usually written by the individual parish priests for their own use, as no reliable, official or general handbook existed. The "Parrochiale curatorum" describes all that a parish priest needs to know, and as such it is the first work to remedy the great lack of such a work, which had otherwise occasioned merely individual efforts.The first printing of the work appeared without place and without date, but not earlier than 1493. A reproduction of this edition appeared in Leipzig in 1497 (by Kachelofen), and in 1498 this, the third edition of the work, appeared in Hagenau. In 1499 Lotter produced yet an edition of the work, in Leipzig, and in 1500 Furter produced one in Basle. All these editions are scarce. The work continued to appear into the 16th century.Heinrich Gran (active en Hagenau 1489 - 1527) was a highly important German printer, who introduced printing to the German city of Hagenau, which in the 15th century was a city of much greater importance than it is today. Together with Mentelin and Eggestein, he was one of the pioneers of book-printing in Alsace. The great pioneering publisher Johann Rynmann of Augsburg was one of Gran's most important clients, and the present work constitutes one of their very early collaborations. Between 1501 and 1527, Rynmann financed 174 out of the 213 works that Gran produced during this period. Incunables by Gran are of great scarcity.Graesse IV:243. Hain II:10169
