Pacioli Luca
Aboca Edizioni, 1498. [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.

Sidonius, Caius Sollius Apollinaris et Alia
Published by Uldericus Scinzenzeler for Hieronymus de Asula & Johannes de Abbatibus, 1498. TWO INCUNABLES BOUND TOGETHER. In Latin. Hardcover. A) SECOND (FIRST DATED) EDITION OF SIDONIUS, FROM THE GERMAN PRINTER ULRICH SCINZENELER'S MILAN PRESS. Chancery folio (283 x 194mm.), 144 leaves, 57 lines commentary surrounding text, Roman and Greek letter, woodcut initials. 19th century printed paper backing, Bookplates at front pastedown; near perfect conditions save for pen markings; no repairs. This is the first edition with a commentary by Joannes Baptista Pius and the second printed edition, preceded by the exceedingly scarce 1474 edition. Hain Copinger 1287; Goff S 494. Sidonius Apollinaris, born into an aristocratic Lyonnais family in the early Fifth Century, received an excellent classical education, and married the daughter of the future Roman Emperor Avitus. He was in turn a statesman, a poet, a bishop, and above all a master of the epistolary form. This work includes his letters and poems, which, along with Giambattista Pio's extensive scholia, provide insightful commentary on the difficult later years of the Roman Empire and life in the provinces. Born in Roman high society he ended up as a barbarian citizen in Clermond Ferrand, today's France, after the fall of the empire. His writings have earned Sidonius Apollinaris the title of "The last representative of classical Roman culture." Of the first edition of 1474, Goff locates a copy at the Chapin Library in Massachusetts, and another at the Huntington in California; this first edition had no notes or commentary.

Solino, Cayo Julio (s. iii dC).
Jacobo Británico,, Brescia, 1498. 44 hojas. Signaturas A6, B4, a8, b-d6, e8. Letra redonda del tamaño 102. Manchas de agua en las últimas hojas. Encuadernado en piel moderna al estilo de la Francia del siglo XVIII. Hain-Copinger 14884. Goff S-623. BMC vii, 982. IGI 9092. IBE 5309, sólo 1 ejemplar, el de la Real Academia de Ciencias Morales y Políticas de Madrid. La multihistoria de Solino titulada "Colección de hechos memorables" o Collectanea rerum memorabilium, también conocida como De mirabilibus mundi y finalmente como Polyhistor o "El Erudito" es una enciclopedia geográfica e histórica antigua que tuvo un éxito arrollador. Extracto de la gran enciclopedia de Plinio el Viejo; en esta obra, Solino ordenó los materiales de Plinio con un criterio geográfico.El texto describe el mundo conocido en aquella época, comenzando por Italia y el origen de Roma y recorriendo después Europa y el norte de África, llegando hasta Asia central y la India. No se trata únicamente de un compendio histórico o geográfico sino que recoge de forma sistemática fenómenos curiosos, noticias sobre pueblos lejanos y descripciones de prodigios y alcanzó gran popularidad, quizás por esa fascinación que siempre ha sentido la sociedad por las cosas extraordinarias. Se conocen alrededor de trescientos manuscritos desde los primeros conservados que se remontan al siglo VIII. La Edad Media disfrutó de la lectura de esta obra, por sus infinitas alusiones a animales reales e imaginarios; en el siglo XVI, aún gozaría de fama, como se desprende de la traducción que Cristóbal de las Casas dio a la luz en Sevill … [Click Below for Full Description]

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, vicari … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRUYTRODE, JACOBUS DE
[Augsburg: Johann Froschauer, not after 1498]. This "Bath of the Conscience" is filled with morally instructive stories intended to keep priests faithful to their vows and safe from worldly temptations, lest they suffer the "harshest punishments" of hell. Born in Gruitrode ca. 1400-10, Jacobus van Eertwach was a Carthusian monk who served as an abbot from 1440 until his death in 1475, during which time he produced numerous works of spiritual guidance for both clergy and laypersons. "Lavacrum" was first printed by Anton Sorg in 1489, and the present copy was issued by his fellow Augsburg printer, Johann Froschauer, best known for producing the first woodcut illustration of the natives of the New World in his 1505 edition of Vespucci's "Mundus Novus." This is a well-preserved 15th century imprint from an esteemed press, and offered at what is intended to be an attractive price.. 204 x 140 mm. (8 x 5 1/2"). 3 p.l., CV [105] leaves (two index leaves bound after title page, rather than at the end). Single column, 31 lines plus headline in gothic type. Once lovely and still appealing late 18th or early 19th century green morocco, gilt (a remboîtage), covers with delicate dentelle frame of vines, flowers, and palmettes, raised bands, spine compartments with central floral sprig, curling cornerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins gilt-rolled, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Title page with woodcut of Christ holding an orb, opening of text with 11-line woodcut maiblumen initial "L." Title page with contemporary three-line ink inscription in Latin; occasional early marginalia. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pacioli Luca
Sansepolcro: 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.

GELLI GIOVAN BATTISTA
presso Giordano Ziletti. 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.

Mela, Pomponius
Simon de Bevilaqua, [Venice, 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 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. GOFF M454. PROCTOR 5411. WALSH 2535. SHEPPARD 4491.

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]

(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]
