        Historia da America Portugueza, desde o anno de mil e quinhentos do seu descobrimento, até o de mil e setecentos e vinte e quatro.Lisbon, Joseph Antonio da Sylva (printer of the Academia Real), 1730. 4to. With 5 woodcut headpieces (plus 6 repeats), 2 including the arms of the dedicatee, King João V. Contemporary sprinkled tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine with owner's name "G.P.C. Medeyros".

      Alden & Landis 730/211; Borba de Moraes, p. 678; Rodriques 2112; Sabin 72300; cf. Boxer, The Golden Age of Brazil, p. 160. First edition of the first general history of Brazil, covering the period 1500 to 1724. Though Robert Southey in the widely quoted preface to his History of Brazil dismissed the work as meagre and inaccurate, "the Historia does not deserve this censure. For all its Gongoric turgidity, it contains some valuable and authentic information, being on some points more fair-minded and accurate than Southey's better written but more prejudiced work" (Boxer). Sebastião Rocha Pita (1660-1738) was a Brazilian historian and member of the Royal Academy of Portuguese History. He based his history on Jesuit chronicles and a variety of other sources, and included noteworthy information on Brazil's foundation and its successive governors. He also includes several references to gold, silver and salpeter mines, and a short note on pirates. "This first edition is becoming rare, and is much sought after by Brazilians" (Borba de Moraes).One leaf with small hole in foot margin, one leaf with tear, some insignificant water stains, binding slightly worn, front board with some wormholes, otherwise in very good condition.

        USE OF PARIS

      Northern France, probably Paris, ca, 1500. n. Hardcover. A Complete Book of Hours Associated with Jean Pichore,With 13 Large and 39 Small Miniatures. 184 x 127 mm (7 1/4 x 5"). 129 leaves, COMPLETE, written out in a very clean, rounded book hand (combining elements of the gothic and bâtarde). In an appealing period French calf binding with very elaborate strapwork designs on both covers (rebacked in the 20th century using original portions of the spine, new endpapers). With 24 small double calendar miniatures (the labor of the month and zodiac sign for each month within separate gilt borders but tangent to each other on the recto of each calendar leaf), 15 additional small miniatures showing the Virgin and Child, the Evangelists in the Gospel lessons, and then various saints in the Suffrages, and 13 FULL-PAGE ARCH-TOPPED MINIATURES accompanied by particularly lavish full borders of brushed gold and much acanthus and floral decoration. The gilt on the binding slightly rubbed or dulled, isolated trivial soiling, smudges, or other blemishes internally, but IN REMARKABLY FINE CONDITION, the paint and glittering gold virtually as they were at the time the manuscript was produced, and with consistently comfortable margins. In a very appealing contemporary binding and exceptionally well preserved, this is an excellent example of a complete mainstream Parisian Book of Hours produced by a highly skilled workshop at around the close of the first decade of the 16th century. While much remains unknown about Parisian manuscript production during this period, it seems likely that multiple illuminators would have worked on a book like this. And here the large miniatures seem to have been painted by at least two, and perhaps three, artists; the first two and maybe the final one are close to the style associated with Jean Pichore, whose recognizable artistic elements include small heads but rather big hands, little downward turned eyes, and soft colors with rather good zig-zagging gold highlights in the drapery. Known to have been working in Paris from at least 1502-20, Pichore was a major figure among illuminators of the period, though his name evokes a style as much as a person. The other miniatures here could well have been executed by members of Pichore's workshop. (Pichore also co-published printed Books of Hours with Rémy de Laistre, and presumably designed their woodcuts.) The contents are as follows: 1-12v Calendar; 13r-17r Gospel Lessons (with a full-page miniature of John on Patmos on 13r); 17v-20r Obsecro Te; 20v-22r Intemerata (22v blank except for rubric at bottom); 23r-71v Hours of the Virgin, with a full-page miniature of the Annunciation (for Matins) on 23r, of the Visitation (for Lauds) on 41r, of the Nativity (for Prime) on 49v, of the Shepherds (for Terce) on 54r, of the Magi (for Sext) on 57r, of the Presentation in the Temple (for None) on 60r, of the Flight into Egypt (for Vespers) on 63r, and of the Coronation of the Virgin (for Compline) on 68r; 72r-74v Hours of the Cross (with a full-page miniature of the Crucifixion on 72r); 75r-77v Hours of the Holy Spirit (with a full-page miniature of Pentecost on 75r); 78r-91v Penitential Psalms and Litany (with a full-page miniature of David praying on 78r); 92r-123v Hours of the Dead (with a full-page miniature of Death with a spear on 92r); 124r-129v Suffrages (with small miniatures of the Trinity, Saint Michael, John the Baptist, John the Evangelist, Peter and Paul, Saint Nicolas, Saint Anne, Mary Magdalene, Saint Katherine, and Saint Margaret). Although there is anecdotal evidence that our manuscript once was in the eminent collection of Martin Schøyen, we have been able to find no definitive record of an appearance of it in the marketplace. Whatever is to be said about where and by whom the manuscript was produced and owned, it is remarkable in its flawless condition, huge margins, and bright, crisp illumination.

        14TH/16TH C. ORIGINAL RENAISSANCE OIL PAINTING - BLACK MADONNA OF CZESTOCHOWA, POLAND WITH JESUS

      c. 1300-1500. Art. Painting size: 14" x 14"; Frame size: 21" x 21"; This painting has cracklature, please see images. There are no holes, tears, or other damage to the canvas or painting and is in very good condition for its age. It is in a modern frame. This painting had been a larger painting originally. The actual painting wraps around the top and bottom of the stretcher and the top and bottom of the painting were trimmed off at the edge of the back of the stretcher. On each side of the stretcher, a piece of early 20th century canvas has been professionally added to each side to allow enough canvas to secure to the sides of the stretcher without cutting off more of the painting. By looking at the back side of the painting and carefully pushing the canvas away from the stretcher, one can see the added piece of canvas which was added in the 20th century. Because the top and bottom of the painting had been cut off, and because this is clearly a professional restretching and mounting to a later stretcher, the painting presumably had damage and was trimmed to make it a displayable painting. Close up photos of what I have described are available upon request. .

        EVANGELISTARIUM STRAHOVIENSE (EVANGELIARIUM STRAHOVIENSE - THE STRAHOV EVANGELIARY) Fine Facsimile Edition

      Tempus Libri. New;. Hardcover. <p>A priceless manuscript from the Early Middle Ages, it dates back to around 860 in Tours (France). It is written in Latin. It contains 222 folios (444 pages) measuring 270x168 mm. The evangeliary is written in uncial script (Latin alphabet of capital letters) with the headings written in Roman capitals. Rubrication is used in the manuscript, and it contains some marginalia. Parts of the text, some of the headings, and the illuminations are decorated with gold. </p><p>It contains four figural illuminations of the evangelists St. Matthew (with the symbol of an angel) , St. Mark (with the symbol of a lion) , St. Luke (with the symbol of an ox) , and St. John the Evangelist (with the symbol of an eagle). As for the style, it is a pure example of the Ottonian style, the pictures of the evangelists are an early work of the most famous Ottonian painter, Master of the Registrum Gregorii. Originally, these were presumably separate leaves, bound into an older codex later. The quality of the painting is exceptional, the rendering highly sophisticated. Purple background is often used in the text, painted over with vermilion. Inscriptions in gold are written over such background. At some places, green background is also used, besides the purple. </p><p>The covers and binding of the manuscript are supposedly of Czech origin, from around 1500. The front is covered in red velvet, and richly decorated. There are four dominant gilded figures in high relief. A silver figure of the Crucifixion is positioned in the centre, with the Virgin Mary and St. John the Evangelist, and two saint bishops on the sides. Furthermore, there are four silver medallions of the Evangelists. The top and the bottom of the cover are decorated with Romanesque enamel discs. Between them, there is a figure of Christ Benedictory on the throne at the top, and the Madonna and Child at the bottom. The composition is completed with cut crystals and semi-precious stones. The binding is protected with decorated silver book corners (on both the front and back covers) , the body with gilded gauffered edges is clasped with two decorated clasps. </p><p>The manuscript originated sometime around 860 in the scriptorium of Tours. Later it passed into the ownership of the Church of St. Martin in Trier where paintings were added. The evidence of the manuscript&#146;s presence in Trier can be found, for instance, in the entry from 1097 describing the consecration of the altars in the Church of St. Martin in Trier with the names of the Trier bishops. </p><p>The original manuscript is kept at the library of the Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians at Strahov in Prague under the book number DF III 3. The Tempus Libri company has obtained the exclusive rights to facsimile the manuscript. The facsimile of the Strahov Evangeliary will be published in a limited edition of 199 copies. </p> .

        DS ("Henry").

      Tournehem (Pas-de-Calais), 20. II. 1500. - Oblong 8vo (106 x 162 mm). 1 p., address panel to verso. In French, to the Knights of the Golden Fleece. In 1499 Henry&#146;s uncle, count Engelbert II, invited him to the Burgundian Netherlands as his heir. On the death of his uncle in 1504, Henry inherited the Nassau possessions in the Netherlands, including the wealthy lordship of Breda in the duchy of Brabant. He was an important confidant of the young Emperor Charles V, serving as his chamberlain and as ambassador to Francis I. In this short letter Henry acknowledges receipt of a letter from the Knights of the Toison d&#146;Or, via Maistre Laurent du Blioul ("greffier" or registrar of the order), to whom he has rendered a report and he declares himself at their service. The address panel gives "Les ch[eva]l[ie]rs confreres de lordre de la thoison dor." The Order of the Golden Fleece had been founded in 1430 by Philip III, Duke of Burgundy to celebrate his marriage to the Portuguese princess Infanta Isabella of Portugal, daughter of King John I of Portugal. It became one of the most powerful European chivalric orders and exists to this day. Henry of Nassau was elected to the Order in 1505. - Old dampstaining, slight fraying at right-hand margin, just touching one letter, left-hand margin cut close, just affecting flourish of initial "T" and one other letter, neat paper repair/reinforcement to all margins at verso. - Provenance: Charavay, Paris.

        TEXT FROM VESPERS

      Gilles Hardouin, Paris 1500 - 222 x 140 mm (8 3/4 x 5 1/2"). Single column, 30 lines of text, gothic typeface. Attractively matted. Verso with elaborate metalcut compartmentalized border featuring mischievous putti and grotesques, the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian, and a woman shearing a sheep; the same side with 18 one-line hand-painted initials in gold on a blue or red ground, two similar two-line initials, and one three-line foliated initial in gold on a red ground; recto WITH A RICHLY PAINTED AND ILLUMINATED WOODCUT OF THE MASSACRE OF THE INNOCENTS, with a glimpse of the flight into Egypt on the left side of the scene. A touch of wrinkling to lower outer corner, verso with remnants of mounting tape, otherwise A VERY FINE LEAF, the printing clear and fresh, the colors vivid, and the gold lustrous. The massacre depicted here appears to be taking place in Herod's throne room, as if he had ordered it for his own entertainment. Seated in the center of the piece on a massive gold throne, he views the heartbreaking chaos before him impassively, ignoring an angry women who is lifting her bleeding infant up to him as if to say, "See what you've done!" The mothers here are not wailing in grief, but are angrily fighting for their sons' lives. In the foreground, a soldier pushes a golden-haired woman out of the way, in order to finish off the dazed and wounded infant she and her companion are attempting to shield. On either side, soldiers have raised swords to smite the helpless tots, and to the right of Herod, a bleeding infant looks pitifully up at the armored solder who holds him by the arm, ready to deliver the fatal blow. In the upper right, we see a baby impaled on a spear. A glimpse of hope through an open window mitigates the horror of the gruesome scene: we see Joseph leading a donkey bearing the Virgin and the Christ Child as they flee to Egypt, blessed by golden rays streaming down from heaven. The action here is dramatic, intense, and memorable; the colors are vivid, the heavy use of gold adding light to an overwhelmingly sober subject. The Book of Hours from which this leaf came must have been extraordinarily sumptuous.
