        Krönung der Maria mit Engeln. Altkolorierter Einblattholzschnitt.

      Straßburg oder Freiburg, um 1500. - Größe 13x10,8 cm. Vor einer halb hohen Steinmauer sitzt Maria, frontal gesehen, auf einer Steinbank. Sie hat langes lockiges Haar mit einem Reifennimbus und hält in ihrer linken Hand ein Lilienzepter; auf ihrem rechten Knie steht das nackte Kind, dessen Rücken sie stützt und das nach einer Brosche ihres Gewandes greift. Über ihr schwebt ein Engel, der ihr eine Krone mit sehr hohen Zinken auf das Haupt setzt; rechts hinter der Mauer befindet sich ein zweiter Engel, der ein Notenblatt mit der Aufschrift "Maria" hält. Neben dem Steinsitz rechts eine buschige Blattpflanze. – Der Holzschnitt fand Verwendung für ein Notenblatt mit 11 fünflinigen Notenzeilen, die für „Altus, Discantus, Bassus, Tenor" bestimmt sind und mit dem dazugehörigen gedruckten Gedicht (zweizeilige Überschrift und 5 Verse zu je vier Zeilen): "Carmen in laudem et honorem virginis Mariae.". Der Holzschnitt ist eine seitengleiche Kopie eines Ende des 15. Jahrhunderts entstandenen, der jedoch weder Mauer noch den zweiten Engel zeigt (vgl. Schreiber 1116). Dieser Holzschnitt wurde eine Zeit lang dem jungen A. Dürer zugeschrieben, Schoch sieht ihn aber – wie schon Schreiber- eher in der Schongauer-Nachfolge und scheidet ihn aus dem Werk Dürers wieder aus(Schoch/Mende/Scherbaum Bd. III, A 45.1). - Äußerst selten! Nach Schreiber sind nur zwei unkolorierte Exemplare in Eichstätt und Hannover bekannt. An drei Seiten bis zur Einfassungslinie beschnitten, oberhalb des Holzschnittes Fragment einer der 5-linigen Notenzeilen mit Quadratnoten. Randbeschädigungen an den Längsseiten sorgfältig restauriert. Links unten im Abdruck etwas flau (im unkolorierten Eichstätter Exemplar ebenso). In Passepartout. Schreiber (Handbuch) 1115; Weis-Liebersdorf, Inkunabeln des Formschnitts in den Bibliotheken zu Eichstätt, S. 12 + Tafel 10 (mit Abb. des Gesamtblattes).

FINE CONTEMPORARY BLIND-STAMPED CALF, covers with central panel composed of five vertical floral rolls enclosed by two swirling floral-roll frames (see Gid 27 for a very similar example), raised bands, two original openwork silver clasps incorporating the initials "J M," original catch-plates and anchor-plates (these incorporating the initials "A M," no doubt for "Ave Maria"), remnants of velvet beneath the catch-plates and anchor-plates (see below), vellum pastedowns, all edges gilt, (probably some small repairs to the binding, but, if so, done with very great skill). In a modern brown clamshell box with leather spine label. Rubrics in red, one-line initials throughout with gilt letters against a blue or red ground, many blue and red line fillers with gilt decorative embellishment, Calendar leaves with a two-line "KL" ("Kalends") in gold against a blue or red ground, one-line Dominical letter "A" similarly depicted, Golden Numbers and important feast days in red ink; numerous two-line gold initials against a blue or red ground; and WITH 14 LARGE AND 23 SMALL FINELY EXECUTED MINIATURES, the larger miniatures inside an architectural border approaching a trompe-l'oeil style, some with marbled columns and many with a golden chain or tassle extending into the margins, the scenes depicting St. John on the Island of Patmos writing the Book of Revelation, the Agony in the Garden, the Annunciation, the Visitation, Pentecost, the Nativity, the Annunciation to the Shepherds, the Presentation in the Temple, the Adoration of the Magi, the Flight into Egypt, the Coronation of the Virgin, King David in Penitence, Job on the Dung-heap, and the Mass of Saint Gregory, the text (underneath the miniatures) on these pages incorporating a large three-line embellished gold initial against a blue and red ground and an assortment of one- and two-line initials in the same style as elsewhere in the text; the smaller miniatures (nine lines high and framed by three thick gold bars) depicting Saint Luke, Saint Matthew, Saint Mark, the Virgin praising the Christ Child, the Virgin enthroned holding the Christ Child, the Throne of Mercy, Saint Michael, Saint John the Baptist, Saint John, Saints Peter and Paul, Saint James, Saint Stephen, Saint Lawrence, Saint Christopher, Saint Sebastian, Saint Nicholas, Saint Claudius, Saint Anne, Saint Mary Magdalene, Saint Katherine, Saint Margaret, Saint Apollonia, and Saint Barbara.

Gid 27 (for the binding). A few marks and a little rubbing to the leather, small stain affecting the top margin of one gathering, trivial erosion to paint and light rubbing to one or two of the miniatures executed on the hair side of the vellum, but all of these imperfections very minor, and the volume IN OUTSTANDING CONDITION, the original binding showing surprisingly little wear, the text remarkably fresh and unsoiled, the vast margins as large as one ever hopes to see in a book like this, and THE RICHLY PAINTED MINIATURES EXCEPTIONALLY BRIGHT AND CLEAN. This is a very beautiful late 15th or early 16th century Book of Hours which features, among other notable elements, condition that is absolutely remarkable and an original binding decorated in such a way as to identify the owner for whom the book was made. The manuscript boasts a particularly well-preserved program of miniatures that can be attributed to Jean Coene IV (active ca. 1490-1520), an artist who hailed from a long line of manuscript illuminators originally from Bruges but active in Paris from the early 15th century. Identified by Isabelle Delaunay and Eberhard König and dubbed the "Master of the Paris Entries," Coene was a prolific artist who, according to Peter Kidd, "was perhaps particularly known to contemporary patrons for his ability to create new compositions." His versatility as an artist is demonstrated by the variety of volumes to which he contributed, including histories, voyages, and Royal Entry books (the latter earning him his sobriquet), in addition to devotional works such as the Book of Hours seen here. Although the artist is known to have collaborated with famed Parisian illuminator Jean Pichore on several occasions (see, for example, British Library MS Sloane 2418), Coene had his own style, readily identifiable through his unique use of sharp, black outlines, minimal modelling, and gold highlights (particularly on garments). Like most professional workshops of the period, the Coene atelier was capable of producing work of varying quality, which often depended on the wealth and needs of the patron; this work, almost certainly done by the master himself, is clearly a premium production. The harmonious composition of each scene, the use of vibrant color combinations, and the confident line strokes clearly indicate the work of a practiced hand with none of the shortcuts one might expect in a more hurried execution. As indicated above, the original owner of this Book of Hours was Jean Martin, an official in the French government (according to notary records, the Contrôleur Ordinaire des Guerres), whose name and important genealogical dates are written in the back of this volume. Two devotions to St. Martin and his Translation, added to the end of the Suffrages in a slightly different hand than that of the main scribe, are further evidence of the owner's identity, as is the design of the openwork hasps, with their prominent initials that seemingly must refer to "I[ean] M[artin]." Remnants of purple velvet under the anchor-plates and catch-plates indicate that the book was once covered in a chemise of this precious material. According to Szirmai, it was not unusual for Medieval books to consist of a primary leather binding with an overcover added for extra protection and, especially in the case of textile overcovers, as a luxury material befitting the sumptuous contents.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Salzburg - 8vo. 2½ pp. With monogrammed letterhead and two oval stamps (Jakob Schwarz). To the German writer and autograph collector Eugen Wolbe, concerning the acquisition of a manuscript of the great Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi, which is to be auctioned off by S. Martin Fraenkel in Berlin and which Zweig is determined to have. In full: "Verehrter Herr Studienrat, vielen Dank für Ihre Freundlichkeit die mir diesmal besonders wertvoll ist. Denn ich möchte den Leopardi um jeden Preis haben. In der Auction wird er wahrscheinlich (da ihn Fränkel nicht beschrieben hat) hoffentlich nur auf etwa 1500-2000 Mark gehen. Ich möchte Sie aber bitten, mir ihn auf jeden Fall zu erwerben, im Notfall bis 12.000 (Zwölftausend) Mark zu gehen [.] Mir liegt an diesem Leopardi, weil ich L. sehr liebe und gerade Verse selten sind; vor dem Krieg habe ich einmal einen, der 100 Lire kosten sollte (einen herrlichen!) um einen Tag versäumt. Sie wissen nun wohl aus eigener Erfahrung, dass man wenn einem einmal ein Stück entgangen, mit besonderer Leidenschaft dann ein ähnliches erwerben will. Ich hoffe mich dann bei Ihnen für Ihre Mühe revancieren zu können, auch ein Rolland ist Ihnen gewiss: nur aus meiner eigenen Correspondenz will ich nichts nehmen , weil ich da ein kostbares Ganzes nicht zerstören mag: nur ihn bitten kann ich jetzt nicht, weil er mir eben schreibt, er sei vom Schreiben sosehr übermüdet. Aber es kommt schon eine Gelegenheit [.] Hoffentlich glückt es, das Stück billig zu erwerben (denn das Höchstlimit ist ja nur für den undenkbaren Fall, dass gerade aus Italien ein Leopardinarr so viel bieten würde, ich hoffe mit 1500 Mark davonzukommen und das Geld für die Henrici Auction zu sparen, deren Katalog ich noch nicht habe, die ich aber vielleicht persönlich besuche, wenn besondere Stücke für mich dabei sind) [.]". - The manuscript in question is the poem "XXXVIII. Del greco di Simonide", today Zweig MS. 167 in the British Library, London. Cf. Matuschek, Zauber der Schrift, p. 268, no. 453.

        ASIA: ASIAE NOVA DESCRIPTIO. CUM PRIVILEGIO.

      - This highly decorative first state of the map of Asia by Abraham Ortelius shows the Middle East, Russia, India, China, South East Asia with Indonesia and Philippines, New Guinea a part or Australia, with misprojection of Japan and very distinct Northeast Passage. This classic map was based upon a rare early map of Asia by Giacomo Gastaldi (c. 1500 - 1566) and geographical researches of a Kurdishhistorian and geographer Abu al-Fida (??? ???????; 1273 – 1331). Ortelius published it in his work Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, one of the most famous atlases of all times. This first edition of the map, which distinguishes itself from the second edition only by faint printed words ‘Cum Privilegio’ in the lower left corner and two names of places (Frarfana in th upper right corner, written with a capital letter, and the town Ara above Aden, which disappears in the second state) was published in the earliest editions of the atlas between 1570-1574. This map was issued in one of the first four Latin editions. References: Van der Broecke, 6. _______________________________________ Höchst dekorative Karte zeigt Asien. Herausgegeben in Theatrum Orbis Terrarum von Abraham. 1. Zustand (von 2), herausgegeben in einer lat. Ausgabe zwischen 150-1574. Abraham Ortelius (16.3.1527 in Antwerpen – 29.6. 1598 ebd.) war Geograph, Archäologe und Sammler, vor allem aber einer der erfolgreichsten Verleger des niederländischen Handels- und Druckzentrums Antwerpen in der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts. Seine herausragende Rolle im Bereich der Druckgraphik bzw. der Kartographie basiert vor allem auf seinem 1570 erschienenen Werk Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, das als der erster Atlas gehandelt wird und Ortelius zum Begründer der modernen Kartographie werden lässt. Ortelius entstammte einer von Augsburg in die südlichen Niederlande eingewanderten Familie. 1546, im Alter von 19 Jahren, wurde er hier alsafsetter van carten - als Kartenkolorist – in das Register der Lukasgilde von Antwerpen eingetragen. Zunächst als Kartenmaler tätig (u.a. bei Christoph Plantin (1520-1589)), widmet sich Ortelius spätestens ab den 1560er Jahren dem Buchhandel und dem Druck großformatiger Karten. Die erste namentlich von ihm verlegte Karte, eine 8-blättrige Wandkarte der Welt Typus Orbis Terrarum, ist auf das Jahr 1564 datiert. Im Mai 1570 erfolgte die Publikation seines zentralen Werks Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, bei dem es sich um eine umfangreiche Sammlung hochwertig produzierter Karten im einheitlichen Format handelt, die auf innovative Weise mit erklärenden Begleittexten versehen und in Buchform zusammengefasst worden sind. Das durch die Kombination von Text und Bild verkomplizierte Druckverfahren - hierzu mussten verschiedene bzw. verschieden schnell arbeitende Pressen eingesetzt werden – macht das Theatrum zu einem inhaltlich wie technisch anspruchsvollen Zeugnis der Buchdruckkunst sowie zu einer Gesamtschau des kartografischen Wissens am Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts. Zu Ehren seiner "Weltschau" wurde Ortelius zum Hofkartographen Philipp II. von Spanien (1527-1598) ernannt. Neben dem Theatrum gab Abraham Ortelius auch den Thesaurus Geographicus (1587) heraus, bei dem es sich um ein Register antiker und moderner geographischer Bezeichnungen handelt. In einer jüngeren Ausgabe dieses Werks (1596) behandelt Ortelius in einer kurzen Passage seine Theorie über die Kontinentaldrift, die als erster schriftlicher Beleg für die Grundlagen dieser modernen These und der daraus entstandenen Plattentektonik gilt, die faktisch erst im 20. Jahrhundert etabliert worden ist. Abgerundet wird das Oeuvre des humanistisch gebildeten Kartographen und Historikers durch Werke wie das Deorum Dearumque Capita (1573), eine auf numismatischen Studien basierende Antike Götterkunde, und das Aurei saeculi imago, sive Germanorum veterum vita (1596), ein Traktat über die Kultur der antiken Germanen. Die zentrale Position des Antwerpener Verlegers im europäischen Wissenschaftsdiskurs Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts wird durch

        Statutes and Ordinances of the Order of St. Michel; Renaissance illuminated manuscript on parchment

      RENAISSANCE ILLUMINATE MANUSCRIPT IN FRENCH ON PARCHMENT, France (probably Paris), c. 1500-1530 (perhaps c. 1523-1528). 265 x 185 mm. 40 folios, complete (collation, i7 [of 8, lacking 8, possibly an illuminated frontispiece, with no loss of text] ii-iv8 v6 vi3 [of 4, lacking 4, canceled with no loss of text]), some leaf and quire signatures, written in an elegant bâtarde script on 27 long lines (justification, 180 x 125 mm.), ruled in red ink with the top and bottom rules full across and with full-length single vertical bounding lines, red rubrics, one- to two-line initials in liquid gold on burgundy and blue grounds heightened with scrolling foliage, dots, and floral sprigs in liquid gold, six-line blue initial infilled and on a burgundy ground, both heightened with liquid gold scrolls (f. 33), added nineteenth-century flyleaf carefully copied in roman letter in black, red, and blue (possibly using stencils). BINDING: Nineteenth-century elaborately gilt-tooled black leather over pasteboards incorporating earlier purple velvet binding as center panels on the front and back covers, gilt-tooled spine with five raised bands, purple silk doublures. TEXT: This is a fine copy of the document that defined the practices and rules of the royal Order of St. Michel. Monarchical orders or royal orders in particular were created to assure the loyalty of the knights to the king by serving as an ingenious supplement to (or replacement for) the feudo-vassalic ties that once bound the leading members of the nobility to their sovereign. In addition, they were long important as expressions of the secular ideals of chivalry that were at the heart of the international court culture during the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. Founded by King Louis XI of France in 1469, the Order of St. Michel was founded in devotion to these ideals but also, more pragmatically, to serve as the French equivalent of the Burgundian Order of the Golden Fleece, founded in 1430. Its membership was initially restricted to thirty-six knights chosen from among the most powerful men in France, though by the sixteenth century the Order was growing less selective. The statutes for the new Order were closely modeled on the statutes of the Order of the Golden Fleece, originally containing sixty-six articles. The present manuscript follows the text of the version from 1476, which added articles sixty-seven to ninety-two. Written in an elegant script and adorned with illuminated initials, this example was probably copied at the Renaissance court of King Francis I. Although copies are not rare in public collections, they seldom come on the market. PROVENANCE: The layout, script, and decoration all support an origin in France, most likely in Paris, in the opening decades of the sixteenth century. The similarity of these aspects of the manuscript to those of copies of statutes now at UCLA (formerly our TM 49) and London, British Library, Harley MS 4485 suggests that it may have been one of the manuscripts documented as having been ordered by the court of Francis I, king of France (1515-1547), for distribution to knights of the Order, dated in documentary sources between 1523-1528. These manuscripts were illustrated by a Parisian artist named Etienne Collaud; the manuscript described here no longer includes an illuminated frontispiece, and therefore its connection to this group of manuscripts, although likely, is not certain. Belonged to the Barons Monson in Burton; their MS CLXVII. Probably acquired by William John Monson, 6th Baron Monson (1796-1862). CONDITION: Some spots on the first few leaves and small stains on the upper edges, cockled, but otherwise in excellent condition with wide and clean margins; binding in very good condition apart from small splits in the spine and scuffs to the velvet. Full description and photographs available (TM 742).

      Adams C-1240; Besterman, Old Art Books, p. 23; Cicognara 273; Honeyman 659; Schlosser 398-399; BMC STC Italian, p. 164. First edition of the treatises on the arts of the goldsmith and the sculptor by Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571), one of the most important artists of Mannerism. Cellini divulges the wonderful secrets and methods of the goldsmith, designing medals, enamelling, minting coins, soldering, tinting diamonds, etc. and also the techniques of the Florentine sculptors of the `quattrocento', like those of Donatello who attacked the block directly without the use of large scale models. There is also a crucial passage on Michelangelo's sculptural technique: how he outlined the figure in charcoal on the block, made large scale clay models, and the kind of chisels and drills Michelangelo used. Oddly enough Cellini's treatises were not republished till 1731, nor translated until the 19th century. With an ownerships' inscription of Domenico Martinelli di Lucca on the second blank page, lacking a blank leaf, some slight foxing and a few marginal stains. A very good copy.

First published around 1474 in Basel, this highly respected reference 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). The second work is a well-known formulary (vocabulary and form book) on procedure in the papal courts produced for the German market.

        50 Photographs

      New York: Duell Sloan & Pearce. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, one of only 1500 copies initialed by Weston. In the rare original dust jacket in exceptionally good condition. With essays by Robinson Jeffers, Merle Armitage, and Donald Bear. Illustrated with folio reproductions of fifty of Weston's photographs. "Though [50 Photographs] includes all of Weston's genres--landscapes, nudes, still lifes, and portraits--it is an unusual selection, more edgy than iconic... The overall effect... is to make visible the real legacy of Weston's work, the way it influenced so much of what would come after. The 50 photographs are followed by a portrait of Weston himself, taken by his son Cole in Point Lobos in 1946, in which the old man is shown wedged between boulders: alert, watchful, mobile, and as sound as stone" (David Levi-Strauss in The Book of 101 Books). Roth 128. Open Book 150. 

 New York: Duell Sloan & Pearce, 1947. Folio, original cloth, original dust jacket. Owner bookplate and stamp on front free endpaper; owner stamp also on rear pastedown and at bottom of limitation page. Cloth very clean; dust jacket with light edgewear. An excellent copy in the rare dust jacket - one of the finest examples we've seen of the notoriously fragile jacket.

With 59, 7 full-page woodcuts & 52 smaller cuts assembled to form 10 more full-page illustrations, the woodcuts colored by a contemporary hand in red/orange and yellow. Initials in same colour. 57 lines & headline; double column. Folio. 312 leaves. Bound in contemporary dyed halfleather with renewed wooden boards and clasps. 31,5 x 22 cm.. First Nürnberger edition, the most important Scandinavian religious work in the late Middle Ages. The 1500 edition produced in Nuremberg by one of the giants of the early printing period, Anton Koberger, is notable for the likely participation of another famous native of Nuremberg, the artist Albrecht Durer (1471-1528), who was Koberger's godson. It is generally accepted that Durer at least designed the illustrative woodcuts, even if another hand performed the actual cutting of the blocks. Compared with other Northern European book illustrations of the period, the Birgitta woodcuts show a readiness to move away from strict geometric patterning towards a more naturalistic grouping of figures and to endow these figures with individual expressions. Durer had visited Venice in the mid-1490s and been deeply influenced by the humanism of Italian Renaissance painters. Thematicly and compositionally the illustrations are similar to the Lübeck edition from 1492.Birgitta, or Bridget, was a Swedish mystic, born in 1303 and married, at age thirteen, to the wealthy nobleman Ulf Gudmarrson, to whom she bore eight children. Having experienced religious visions since early adulthood, she devoted herself wholly to the worship of God and imitation of Christ after her husband's death in 1344, establishing a convent in the town of Vadstena by Lake Vattern. In 1350 she moved to Rome, where she spent the rest of her life, apart from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in her last years. She died in 1373 and was canonised by Pope Boniface IX in 1391. A blend of theological meditation, biblical lore and spiritual autobiography, her 'Revelations' were dictated to her confessors over a period of more than twenty years.Hain-C. 3205
