GELLI GIOVAN BATTISTA
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.

( 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.

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]

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. Cfr. D. E. Rhodes, Silent Printers. Anonymous printing at Venice in the sixteenth century, p. 103; Iccu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[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.
