Brant, Sebastian.
Basel, Johann Bergmann, de Olpe, 1. III. 1498. 4to. 146 (instead of 164) ff., wanting fols. 1, 9, 15, 51, 56-58, 81-82, 96-97, the four unnumbered leaves after 144, 157-159, and the final blank. With 108 (instead of 117) woodcuts in the text and printer's device at the end. Early 19th century half calf over papered boards with giltstamped spine label. Edges sprinkled. Early, if incomplete Latin edition of the famous "Narrenschiff", originally published in German verse in 1494 - also by Bergmann - and translated by the author's student Jacob Locher. One of literature's most famous satires and a milestone in the history of book illustration: many of the woodcuts depicting human foibles (here printed from the original blocks) are now attributed to the young Albrecht Dürer. Before Goethe's "Werther" arrived on the scene, this work was the most successful book ever published in Germany, immensely popular and read until it fell to pieces, and complete copies of the incunabular Basel editions are nearly unobtainable. - In his "Ship of Fools", Brant describes the voyage of a ship bearing one hundred fools, to the fools' paradise of Narragonia, thereby satirizing the follies of his time including representatives of every human and social type. "[T]he first original work by a German which passed into world literature [. it] helped to blaze the trail that leads from medieval allegory to modern satire, drama and novel of character" (PMM). Erwin Panofsky called the book "a remarkably complete mirror of human life", based upon the "universality of Brant's self-righteous surliness [.] and … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOCHMAIER, MICHAEL. - [THE FIRST HANDBOOK FOR PARISH PRIESTS - PRINTED BY THE FOUNDER OF PRINTING IN HAGENAU]
(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. … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALDINE IMPRINT). POLITIANUS, ANGELUS
Venice: Aldus Manutius, July, 1498. FIRST EDITION of the collected works. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Theodore DE BRY (1528 - 1598). / Jan Huyghen van LINSCHOTEN (1563 - 1611). Frankfurt, 1601. Copper-engraving (Very Good, some toning along original folds, small stabilized tear just entering image from left with no loss, very minor marginal staining), 39 x 43 cm.
This beautiful bird’s-eye view is one of the most iconic historical images of any Indian city. It captures Goa, the capital of Portuguese India, in its historical prime, when the city had a population of over 200,000 and was the largest European base in Asia. The scene is captured from a southward-looking perspective, with Goa lying on the south bank of the Mondovi River, near where it enters the Arabian Sea. The city is centred on the Vice-Regal Palace, while neat, yet uneven, blocks of houses comprise the urban areas, which also featured several large churches. Prosperous plantations and country churches are shown in the countryside beyond. Numerous trading vessels ride in the harbour, some having arrived from Portugal, while others were engaged in commerce with far away lands, such as China, the Spice Islands and East Africa. For good measure, a mahout is shown riding an elephant near the port. The composition is further adorned with mannerist strapwork cartouches, while St. Catherine, the city’s patron saint, looks down on the scene from a cartouche in the upper right. The view was created by the prominent engraver Theodore De Bry and is based on the view of Goa made by the Dutch spy and adventurer Jan Huyghen van Linschoten. Historical Context: The Rise and Fall of Portuguese Hegemony in India The Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama was the first European in modern times to make the sea voyage from Europe to India in 1498. Within only a few years, Portugal became a great force along the West Coast of India, establishing numerous coastal outposts. The old town of Goa was … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura settecentesca in tutto marocchino rosso, cornice impressa in oro ai piatti, titolo in oro al dorso, dorso e labbri decorati in oro con motivi floreali, tagli dorati. Annotazioni marginali di due mani umanistiche contemporanee; qualche rara piccola e lieve macchia ai margini, prime e ultime carte leggermente brunite. Ottimo esemplare proveniente dalla biblioteca Sormani Busca Arconati Visconti (tassello di collocazione al dorso ed al contropiatto). Ristampa veneziana della princeps bolognese stampata dal Faelli nel 1495-1496 delle Opere del filosofo emiliano, edite dal nipote Giovan Francesco Pico della Mirandola. Le opere di Pico: l'Apologia, l'Heptalus, il De ente et uno, le Disputationes adversus astrologiam divinatricem, sono qui riproposte in un elegante carattere romano, con belle iniziali floreali; vi si trovano per la prima volta l'epitaffio, il carme pasquale di Cipriano e la lettera di Salviati al Lorenzo de' Medici intorno alla pubblicazione dell'Eptaplus.

Cm. 14,5, cc. 96. Vignetta al front. e graziosi capilettera xil. Ottima legatura del tempo in piena perg. molle con titoli ms. al dorso. Antica firma di possesso al frontespizio, trascurabili fioriture. Esemplare ben conservato. Giovan Battista Gelli (1498-1563), letterato fiorentino, non abbandonò mai la professione originaria di calzolaio; fu membro dell'Accademia fiorentina e autore di numerose fortunate operette, che si distinsero per indipendenza di pensiero. Quest'opera, certamente il suo capolavoro, consiste in un dialogo tra Circe, Ulisse e undici suoi compagni trasformati in bestie, i quali, alla prospettiva di tornare uomini, scelsero di rimanere animali tranne uno, che era stato filosofo nella sua prima vita "umana" e non poteva rinunciare alla ricerca della verità.

POLITIANUS, Angelus.
( In fine, f. 450 verso, colophon:) Venetiis, in aedibus Aldi Romani mense Iulio M.IID (Aldo Manuzio, 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. BMC V,559. Goff P-886. HC 13218. Polain B 3233. Renouard, p.17: "Cette rare édition, l'une des plus belles qui soient sorties de l'imprimerie Aldine". IGI P-886.

RHAZES, ARISTARCHUS, EUCLID, ARISTOTLE, GALEN et al. (Giorgio VALLA, tr.).
[Colophon:] Venice: Simon Bevilaqua, 30 September 1498.. First edition, very rare, of this remarkable collection of twenty-two Greek texts translated by Giorgio Valla (and one translated by his adopted son Johannes Petrus Valla), some from the Byzantine period, and others earlier, most on scientific subjects from mathematics and music to medicine, but also including rhetoric, theology, and ethics, with the majority of the texts appearing here in print for the first time. Among the most notable such ‘firsts' in this volume are: <i>De pestilential</i>, the most important work of the great Persian physician Rhazes, the first medical description of smallpox and the most important early work on epidemiology – Rhazes' explanation for why the disease does not strike the same individual twice is the first theory of acquired immunity; five works by Galen (listed below); the only extant work by Aristarchus of Samos, who proposed a heliocentric cosmology almost two millenia before Copernicus; book XIV of Euclid's <i>Elements</i>, generally ascribed to Hypsicles, the first 13 books having been printed by Ratdolt at Venice in 1482; <i>De astrolabio</i>, by the Byzantine scholar Nicephorus Gregoras, on which were based several later texts on the astrolabe, notably those of Apianus and Stöffler; and Aristotle's <i>Poetics</i>, the most comprehensive work on literary theory and criticism surviving from the classical period, which came to play a foundational role in the history of scholarship. These translations are accompanied by one work of Valla himself (‘Ratio argumentandi') and each i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Voraigne, Jacobus de.
Westminster: Wynken de Worde, 1498. 6 1/2 x 10. Double columns of 47 lines with a quarter-page woodcut of Saint Peter. Printed on paper from the Hertford Mill of John Tate--the first English papermaker. Tate's watermark--8 pointed star within a double circle--is clear and centered in this leaf. The top edge and corners are severely browned, with some paper loss, just barely touching the text on one corner. There is a closed tear in lower margin. A prior owner has enclosed the leaf in a paper "frame," which masks the dark areas. That said, the leaf looks handsome when matted. The leaf bears "Of the seven Machabees on one side, and the Lyf of Saynt Peter" on the other, in Caxton's English translation. This leaf was item 302 in Maggs' Catalogue 952.

FICINO, Marcilio
[Johann Amerbach], 1498. 4to. 100 unnumbered ll. [a-l8, m-n6]. Roman letter with Gothic head-lines. Contemporary annotation to a few ll. including index hands. Light age yellowing, occasional oil splashes to the margins of a few ll., a very crisp, clean and well-margined copy in contemporary ruled and blind-rolled half-pigskin over oak boards, ink stain to lower pigskin with small hole, slight tear to spine at tail, original brass clasp. A handsome copy of the second Basel edition of Marsilio Ficino's (1433-99) 'Three Books on Life', dedicated to his patron Cosimo de'Medici. For the famous translator of Plato, and of the hermetic philosophers from ancient Egypt, this was a slight departure from high scholarship into the realm of popular writing that blended folk remedies with the classics, or as the author himself writes, 'Galen, physician of Bodies, and Plato, physician of souls.' The first book 'On Healthy Life' considers black bile, the cause of madness and melancholy, but as Ficino argues, the only bodily substance that engenders profound thought, and thus the origin of genius. In this way Ficino's book is not only a 'Treatise on Healthy Living for the Learned' as he calls it, but the first to defend the temperamental genius because "it sometimes helps to be a little crazy"(Kaske cit. infr.). After arguing "Why Melancholics are Intelligent" Ficino's final chapters of Book 1 provide remedies for rheum, phlegm, stomach aches, and headaches: the side-affects of melancholy. The second book 'On Long Life' continues in this vein with a advice on diet, exercise, and daily habi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philelphus, Franciscus (Francisco Filelfo).
[Basel, Johann Amerbach, nicht nach 1498]. - Eine von nur sechs Ausgaben des 15. Jahrhunderts; die einzige ausserhalb Italiens gedruckte. - Filelfo (1398-1481) war einer der streitbarsten italienischen Humanisten seiner Zeit. Nach brillanten Studien in Padua, wurde er als Dozent nach Venedig berufen. Als Sekretär des venezianischen Gesandten am kaiserlichen Hof in Konstantinopel - kurz vor dessen Fall - erlernte er ausgezeichnet Griechisch. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Italien ließ er sich in Florenz nieder, wo ihm Cosimo de’ Medici eine Lehrkanzel für die Interpretation von Dantes Commedia eingerichtet hatte. Eine Fehde mit Cosimo vertrieb ihn aus Florenz, schliesslich ließ er sich in Mailand nieder, wo er in den Diensten zuerst der Visconti, dann der Sforza stand. Später lebte er in Rom, wo er an der päpstlichen Universität Griechisch las. Filelfo kehrte nach Florenz zurück, als Lorenzo de’ Medici den gegen ihn ausgesprochenen Bann aufhob. - Der Band enthält sechs Grabreden, dabei die für Francesco Maria Sforza und dessen Gattin Bianca Maria, acht Hochzeitsreden, dabei die für Beatrice d’Este, und weitere Reden. Die beiden Übersetzungen des (Pseudo-)Aristoteles und des Plutarchs stammen ebenfalls aus Filelfos Feder. - „Ambizioso e millantatore, astioso e violento con i suoi avversari, ipocrita e adulatore, bizzarro e calcolatore astuto, il Filelfo è figura rappresentativa di un costume del suo tempo, dell’umanista dispensatore di gloria, che compra i favori e le richezze con i suoi scritti" (Dizionario enciclopedico della letteratura italiana, II, 46 … [Click Below for Full Description]

GELLI GIOVANBATISTA
Venezia, presso Giordano Ziletti, 1498. Cm. 14,5, cc. 96. Vignetta al front. e graziosi capilettera xil. Ottima legatura del tempo in piena perg. molle con titoli ms. al dorso. Antica firma di possesso al frontespizio, trascurabili fioriture. Esemplare ben conservato. Giovan Battista Gelli (1498-1563), letterato fiorentino, non abbandonò mai la professione originaria di calzolaio; fu membro dell'Accademia fiorentina e autore di numerose fortunate operette, che si distinsero per indipendenza di pensiero. Quest'opera, certamente il suo capolavoro, consiste in un dialogo tra Circe, Ulisse e undici suoi compagni trasformati in bestie, i quali, alla prospettiva di tornare uomini, scelsero di rimanere animali tranne uno, che era stato filosofo nella sua prima vita "umana" e non poteva rinunciare alla ricerca della verità.
