Mela, Pomponius
[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 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.

AESOP. (Giulio LANDI, translator).
1498. WorldCat (2 copies); cf. Fabula docet 14. Rare edition of the Italian translation by the philosopher Giulio Landi (1498-1579) of Aesop's fables and the Life of Aesop, including no less than 400 animal fables, some collected from other sources. The fables are illustrated with numerous small anonymous woodcuts that appeared for the first time in 1569 in the fables collected by Cesare Pavesi and became very popular through Landi’s translations of Aesop, beginning in 1580. They have been attributed to Johann Krieger, a German working in Italy, where he was known as Giovanni Chrieger. Several woodcuts are repeated, especially at the end, for the fables taken from other sources. All fables close with a moral, here called "Sentenza", intended for the instruction and amusement of the youth.With 2 holes in the last few pages, some water stains throughout, and some restorations with now discoloured tape. With the binding slightly stained, partly detached from the bookblock, and with 2 holes in the back board.

Albrecht DURER (Norimberga 1471 - 1528)
Xilografia, circa 1498 con il monogramma dell'artista in basso verso il centro. Splendido esemplare, con toni ricchi e ben contrastati, rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nella prima variante di tre descritta da Meder, avanti i fori di tarlo nella linea marginale. La datazione dell'opera, intorno al 1498, è basata principalmente sulla forza espressiva della composizione che è comune a quella dei fogli dell'Apocalisse. Caterina, figlia di Costis re di Cipro, fu condannata alla tortura della ruota uncinata in quanto si era rifiutata di rinunciare, come le era stato ordinato dall'Imperatore Massenzio, alla sua fede cristiana. Un'improvvisa pioggia di fuoco distrusse la ruota uncinata. Ciò non valse tuttavia a salvarle la vita in quanto successivamente Caterina venne decapitata. Si conservano due studi a penna relativi alla figura di S. Caterina inginocchiata (Winkler 73 e 74), datati ai tempi del primo soggiorno veneziano del Dürer, che hanno fornito la base per l'elaborata redazione della veste, che è un costume veneziano. La matrice origianle si conserva al Metropolitan Museum di New York. Woodcut, 1498 circa, signed in the bloc with the monogram AD. A very good Meder a impression, before the two thin gaps at the lower borderline. Pinted with a strong contrast, trimmed close to the border line, in very good condition. This print is closely related in style to the Apocalypse., so it is dated around 1498. The woodcut confirms the function of costume studies as independent source material, for here the saint appears in Venetian costume. St Catherin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Osiander, Andreas
10 Bll. Rücknebroschur. 4. VD 16 O 1128. - Andreas Osiander (1498-1552) war Theologe und deutscher Reformator. 1549 wurde Osiander von Herzog Albrecht von Brandenburg-Ansbach als Theologieprofessor an die noch junge, 1544 gegründete Albertus-Universität Königsberg berufen. Dort geriet er in heftigen Streit mit den Anhängern Philipp Melanchthons in der Auseinandersetzung ging es um die Rechtfertigungslehre, eine der Kernaussagen reformatorischer Theologie. Für Melanchthon blieb ein Sünder auch nach der Rechtfertigung vor Christus zutiefst ein Sünder, Osiander war dagegen - ähnlich der Position der Ostkirchen - der Meinung, dass die Gerechtigkeit Christi durch den Glauben dem Menschen eingepflanzt und somit ein Wesensbestandteil des Glaubenden wird. - Breitrandiges Exemplar mit alten Annotationen, sauberen Anstreichungen und gemalten Abschnittsanzeigern. Minimal fleckig, insgesamt wohlerhalten.

Savonarola, Girolamo.
Printer of the 'Caccia di Belfiore', 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.

1498. Folio (323 x 212mm). [348]ff, f. k8 and T6 blank (here lacking), 42 lines, Greek type and Roman type (Gk. 1; Gk 2) 18th century Dutch? red morocco, spine titled in gilt (binding rubbed, spine lightly faded) Venice: Aldus Manutius, 15 July 1498. Editio princeps of nine plays together with the scholia printed round the text. Until the 19th century it was this edition of the scholia which remained (in various reprints) the sole source for our knowledge of these ancient commentaries, which for the elucidation of Aristophanes are of great importance. As late as 1830 the great German scholar Gottfried Hermann described it as ?unicus fons scholiorum? The editor was the Cretan scholar Marcus Musurus who edited a number of works for Aldus, including the editio princeps of Plato. In his preface Aldus mentions Lysistrata but says that in his manuscript this play was very imperfect (?qui vix dimidiata haberi a nobis potuit?), and therefore not printed. In the same passage Aldus tells the story that Theodore of Gaza when asked what Greek author should be read by those wishing to learn Greek, answered ?Only Aristophanes?, and that St. John Chrysostom used a manuscript as a pillow when he went to sleep. In fact Lysistrata and Thesmophoriazusae did not see the light of day until published by Giunta in Florence in 1515/16. Provenance: Armorial book stamp on title-page with motto ?Doe wel en ziet niet om? (a Dutch proverb). Small marginal restorations to first and last leaves, a few leaves stained Goff A958. GW 2333.

Basel Johann Froben und Johann Petri 1 Dezember Type 1 4 6 7 10 11. Dreispaltiges Original-Inkunabelblatt mit zwei kolorierten Holzschnitten (7,2 x 7,3 cm), roten Rubriken und rotverzierten Versalbuchstaben. Der mittige Bibeltext wird von den Kommentaren umrahmt. Frisches und festes Papier. Blatt im Schnitt etwas gebräunt. Blattgröße: 21,8 x 30,5 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. Froben kam es bei seinen Drucken mehr auf wissenschaftliche Zuverlässigkeit, als auf die Ausschmückung seiner Drucke mit Bildern an. Eine Ausnahme macht allein diese Bibelausgabe mit der Glosse des Walahfrid Strabo und der Postille des Nikolaus von Lyra. Die Holzschnitte dieser Ausgabe ähneln der ebenfalls lateinisch kommentierten Bibelausgabe Kobergers von 1485 (GW 4288). Die Abbildungen in dieser Ausgabe von Froben wurden jedoch zumeist in einem verkleinerten Maßstab übertragen. Einige von Frobens Holzstöcken übernahm später der Drucker Amerbach für seine Bibelausgabe, die er von 1498-1502 im Auftage Kobergers druckte.
