However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case. Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger .A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London - from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho - The Cuckoo's Calling is a remarkable book. Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is a classic crime novel in the tradition of P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, and marks the beginning of a unique series of mysteries.

        Large Fragment of a Bohairic Coptic Prayer Book With Arabic Headings [Manuscript on Paper]

      1500. Hardcover (Vellum). Undated, ca 15th-16th century manuscript on laid paper (judging from the use of Arabic headings but with no parallel text, it is much more likely to be earlier than this than later), rebound in modern vellum (possibly reclaimed vellum). 10 leaves, apparently continuous and the first leaf with an architectural border with the Greek phrase "with God" possibly representing the beginning of the book. The Coptic is in an unusual hand that is difficult to place with any precision, but it is likely Egypt and the book came with a note that stated that it was from the Wadi Natrun Monasteries. In any case, a very attractively written manuscript with rubrication and initial flourishes. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Religion & Theology; Antiquarian & Rare. Inventory No: 043832. .

[Basel: Johann Froben and Johann Amerbach, December 1, 1500]. Two parts in one, Part II is titled Constitutiones Clementinarum. [288] ff. Main text surrounded by linear glosses in parallel columns, printed in red and black throughout. Large woodcut depicting the presentation of the Liber Sextus to Boniface on fol. [8]v, woodcut tables of consanguinity and descent on ff. [3]v and [5]r. Collation: AA6, a-y8, z12; AA-MM8. Quarto (8" x 6"). Recent vellum, hand-lettered title to spine, endpapers added, edges rouged. Text in 72-line gothic type printed throughout in red and black. Light toning to text. Early annotation to title page of the Liber Sextus, marginalia to a few leaves, some affected by trimming. Light soiling to bottom inner margins on first 100 leaves, faint dampstaining to outer margins of a few leaves at end of text block, interior otherwise fresh. * With a register of titles and D'Andrea's Super Arboribus Consanguinitatis et Affinitatis. Attempts to codify the body of canon law began in earnest during the Carolingian Empire. These efforts reached fruition between 1020 and 1025 in the twenty-volume Decretum of Burchard, Bishop of Worms. The next great step was taken in 1234 with the Libri Quinque Decretalium of Gregory IX, which formed the basis of the Corpus Juris Canonici. The Liber Sextus of Boniface VIII (1298), the last great collection of the pre-Reformation era, consists of updates and modifications. The Clementinae Constitutiones (1313) is a collection of papal legislation that modifies portions of the Liber Sextus. It was followed by the Extravagantes Joannes XXII and the Extravagantes Communes in 1325. All of these texts were edited after the Council of Trent in 1582 under the collective title Corpus Juris Canonici. Andrea was an Italian canonist and professor of canon law at the University of Bologna. An eminent figure who received the highest tributes from Arithemius, Baldus, Fo

        GHENT-BRUGES OFFICE LECTIONARY, Illuminated liturgical manuscript

      ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM, Southern Netherlands, Ghent of Bruges?, c. 1500, 214 x 155 mm.,195 folios, complete (collation: i-iv8, v6, vi4, vii-xiii8, xiv6, xv-xxv8, xxvi6), written in bâtarde script (justification 137 x 93 mm.), red rubrics, Sanctoral foliated in red, small and larger initials throughout in red or blue, many on every page, often with elaborate flourishing or decorative scrolling, EIGHT LARGE ILLUMINATED INITIALS. BINDING: Bound in eighteenth-century mottled calf. TEXT: Deluxe professionally-made copy of a relatively uncommon monastic text, an Office Lectionary, of ample format with wide margins, expertly written in a beautiful calligraphic hand with much pen flourishing. Office Lectionaries include the lessons for the Divine Office from the Bible and the writings of the Fathers, here arranged beginning with the Temporal from the first Sunday in Advent to the 25th Sunday after Pentecost, and the Office of the Dedication of a Church, followed by the Sanctoral from the eve of Saint Andrew to the Feast of Saint Katherine. ILLUMINATION: Eight illuminated initials, ff. 1, 39, 108, 129, 152, 158, 167 and 178v, in designs of acanthus leaves in grey or brown heightened with white or liquid gold on colored or liquid gold grounds set within trompe-l’oeil frames and often enclosing flowers. These elegant initials are products of the Ghent-Bruges school of illumination and resemble those issuing from the workshop of the Master of the Prayer Books of c. 1500. PROVENANCE: Most likely for an unknown patron in a monastery in the southern Netherlands of Augustinian obedience, c. 1500, on the basis of the script, decoration, and certain liturgical features. The Sanctoral includes Saints Gertrude, Servatius (bishop of Tongeren), Amelberga (of Maubeuge), Lambert (bishop of Maastricht), Ghislain (especially Cambrai and Tournai), and others. The Birth of Saint Augustine begins with an illuminated initial (f. 159), and the translation of his relics is included (f. 172), both with octaves, suggesting the manuscript was initially destined for a monastery of Augustinian obedience. Belonged to Edward Duff Balken (1874-1960), of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania; sold with his manuscript collection to Maggs, c. 1930, and to Charles E. Roseman, Jr., of Cleveland Heights, Ohio. CONDITION: Fine overall condition, first pages a bit rubbed, upper joint a little split.

        Illuminated Manuscript: King David Kneeling Before God

      France: np. 1st Edition. No Binding. Very Good. Richly colored miniature of Kind David, with the text of Psalm 6, from a European (most likely French) Book of Hours, c.1500, on vellum. The recto depicts King David richly adorned with gold and blue robes looking up at an image of God in the sky. David is pictured in a meadow surrounded by trees and rocks, with his harp in a bag next to him. Framing the miniature are classical columns with cherubs on top. The text of Psalm 6 begins with a three-line gold and silver initial ("D") in a banner across the bottom of the miniature. The text, which continues on the recto, contains six additional single-line initials in red, blue, and gold. [France?]: c1500. One leaf on vellum, approx. 7.5 x 5 inches. A spot of dampstaining to the top of the miniature (in the sky), the image of God blurry. A few wrinkles to the vellum. A beautiful leaf with strong colors. The text (Palm 6) in Latin: Domine, ne in furore tuo arguas me, neque in ira tua corripias me. Miserere mei, Domine, quoniam infirmus sum ; sana me, Domine, quoniam conturbata sunt ossa mea. Et anima mea turbata est valde ; sed tu, Domine, usquequo ? Convertere, Domine, et eripe animam meam ; salvum me fac propter misericordiam tuam. Quoniam non est in morte qui memor sit tui ; in inferno autem quis confitebitur tibi ? Laboravi in gemitu meo ; lavabo per singulas noctes lectum meum : lacrimis meis stratum meum rigabo. Turbatus est a furore oculus meus English translation (King James): O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed. My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long? Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake. For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears. Mine eye is consumed because of grief Note: A frame is available for this item for an additional $150.

      Limited Editions Club, 0000. Two volumes, one reddish brown and blue leather, gilt decorated, all edges gilt. OF PARTICULAR INTEREST: laid in are two full-page letters from Alice Hargreave's (nee Liddell) son, one page each, consisting of dickering between the LEC and his mother about having her sign this edition. She was 80 years old at the time, but finally agreed to sign each copy of "Wonderland" for $2.50 a signature. I don't know if that is what she eventually received, or if the poor soul was able to sign all 1500 of them, a daunting task at any age, but she has signed this copy of "Wonderland." This is Number 278, NOT signed by the illustrator, who was probably dead by that time.The printing date (as evidenced on the title page) is 1932 on Wonderland (the one signed by Hargreaves) and 1935 on Through the Looking-Glass. Both volumes are fine, in near fine slipcases. Apparently an enormous amount has been written about the relationship between Carroll and Alice Liddell, some of it a bit accusatory. Who knows? But an interesting accompaniment to a book, at the very least! Each volume has the previous owner's bookplate.. Hardcover. Near Fine/No Jacket. Illus. by John Tenniel.

        East of Eden

      New York: Viking Press. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, one of only 1500 copies signed by Steinbeck. Essential to any Steinbeck collection. Steinbeck "considered Eden to be his magnum opus, the crowning achievement of his life's work. Similar to how Steinbeck spent years researching and reflecting on Zapata, and similar to how Steinbeck gradually put pieces together for The Grapes of Wrath in the 1930's, the writer let East of Eden gestate in his mind for decades. He thus 'nurtured' it 'all of his life and… [it] seemed to grow with him until the time of writing was at hand' … [To] one correspondent, Steinbeck placed East of Eden in the context of his life and work, concluding, 'That earlier work was practice for this… The rest was practice'. In another letter, Steinbeck asserted, 'I still think it is The Book, as far as I am concerned. Always before I have held something back for later. Nothing is held back here. This is not practice for a future. This is what I have practiced for…'" (Michael Price, John Steinbeck). New York: The Viking Press, 1952. Octavo, original green cloth, original cardboard slipcase. Book near-fine with spine gilt a trifle dull; a little wear to slipcase with fading at top edge. A beautiful copy- rare in such good condition.

        Het Achterhuis [The Secret Annex; Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl]

      Amsterdam: Contact. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. RARE FIRST EDITION, one of only 1500 copies printed, of one of the central works of the twentieth century. Complete with three photographic plates, including the frontispiece portrait of Anne Frank. "The diary written by Anne Frank is probably the single most widely read book to come out of the Holocaust (Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, 1952; first published as Het Achterhuis, 1947). Millions of readers have read the story of the teenage girl's two years in hiding. It has been translated into more than thirty-five languages and published in as many countries. Her diary was also the foundation for a successful drama performed worldwide (The Diary of Anne Frank, 1956) and a film of the same title (1959). Especially in the last twenty years, many schoolchildren and adults alike have had their first exposure to the effects of Adolf Hitler's war through Anne's writing. Anne's diary so captured the attention of the world that her name has become symbolic of the six million Jewish victims of the Shoah… "To many, Anne Frank has become a symbol of the strength and optimism of the human spirit in the midst of tragedy. In July 1944 Anne wrote what was to become the most famous line of her diary and the one most often used to symbolize her spirit. 'In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart'… Anne's writing put a human face to the unfathomable statistics of the millions of individuals who suffered and died" (Sarita Cargas, Encyclopedia of Holocaust Literature). Amsterdam: Contact, 1947. Octavo, original paper boards; custom silk box. In the original Dutch. Small, neat, early owner signature on front free endpaper. Toning to spine (as usual), and text edges a little browned (as always). Without the exceedingly rare dust jacket. A very good copy of a rare and fragile book that is notoriously difficult to find in collectible condition.

        Stemma araldico con leone e gallo

      Bulino, 1500 circa, monogrammato in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nella prima variante di sette descritte dal Meder. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ?alta corona? (Meder 20 tipica di questa prima tiratura), completa della linea marginale, piccoli interventi di restauro agli angoli, perfettamente eseguiti, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Sebbene presentata dal Dürer a Re Cristiano di Danimarca nel 1521, e ricordi alla lontana lo stemma nobiliare della famiglia Tetzel di Norimberga, l?opera sembra un lavoro di pura fantasia. Heller sosteneva che rappresentasse una sorta di allegoria di devozione, fedeltà ed attenzione verso qualcuno. Insieme alla successiva opera del 1503, Stemma con il teschio, questo lavoro nasce con il preciso intento, da parte dell?autore, di mostrare il virtuosismo tecnico e l?abilità nell?uso del bulino. Elementi stilistici inducono gli studiosi a datare questa lastra al 1500 circa, tuttavia sembra possibile che le due opere siano state realizzate nello stesso anno, nel 1503. Le due opere costituiscono un primo esempio di capriccio. Capolavoro dell?arte ornamentale. "Engraving, circa 1500, signed on plate at the bottom right. Example in the first variant of seven described by Meder. A magnificent impression, rich in tone, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark ""high crown"" (Meder 20 typical of this first issue), complete with the marginal line, small restoration at the corners perfectly executed, in excellent condition.Although Dürer made by King Christian of Denmark in 1521, and the memories away the coat of arms of the family Tetzel of Nuremberg, the structure resembles a work of pure imagination. Heller claimed to represent a kind of allegory of devotion, fidelity and attention to someone. Together with the subsequent work of 1503, Coat of arms with the skull, this work was created with the specific intent by the author to show the technical virtuosity and skill in the use of the burin. Stylistic elements lead researchers to date this plate from around 1500, but it seems possible that the two works were made in the same year, in 1503. The two works are a prime example of capriccio. Masterpiece of ornamental?s art." Meder 97 a/g; Strauss, The intaglio prints of Albrecht Dürer, p. 96,31; Panofsky 207; Salamon, Albrecht Dürer, Bulini, puntesecche, acqueforti, 25. 120 185

        The Pablo Eisenberg Collection of Native American Literature

      The Pablo Eisenberg Collection of Native American Literature comprises nearly 1500 volumes written by American Indian writers, from the 1700s to the 21st century -- including myths and legends, tribal histories, religious tracts, biographies and memoirs, fiction, poetry, drama and historical and political writings. It includes nearly 600 volumes of nonfiction and almost 900 volumes of literary work. ¶ 87 books of nonfiction dating from 1900 or before, going back to 1772. This is notable, considering that what is generally identified as the first Native American memoir, William Apes's A Son of the Forest, wasn't published until 1829. ¶ 13 books of fiction dating from 1900 or earlier: one of the important surveys of the field of Native American literature, Choctaw-Cherokee writer Louis Owens's Other Destinies, asserted that prior to N. Scott Momaday's Pulitzer Prize-winning House Made of Dawn in 1968, there had only been nine novels by Native American writers ever published. Definitions can vary, but this collection has 13 prior to 1900 whereas Owens saw only nine prior to 1968. One of the 13 is considered to be the first fiction published by a Native American writer -- an 1820 pamphlet containing a fictionalized life story of an Indian woman, written by a Christianized Indian as an inspirational religious tale. ¶ The collection includes not only the early and hard-to-find books by such writers as Mourning Dove, Zitkala Sa (Gertrude Bonnin), D'Arcy McNickle, Ella Deloria, Charles Eastman and Pauline Johnson, dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but also elusive books by a later generation of writers such as Leslie Marmon Silko, Linda Hogan, Gerald Vizenor, Maurice Kenny and Joy Harjo, whose early works were published in tiny quantities by small presses, or sometimes self-published, and which are virtually impossible to obtain. ¶ The collection expands this field of study by including a number of works and authors not found in the standard bibliographies of the field. A library acquiring this collection would immediately be one of foremost destinations for research in this field; only a tiny handful of institutions have more extensive holdings in this often overlooked area of American literature. Native American literature, far from being a small subset of American literature, in reality expands the boundaries of American writing, challenging the written word to meet with oral history and storytelling traditions, where distinctions between fact, legend, myth and history obey different rules than they do within the European literary tradition. From the 1820 pamphlet Poor Sarah to Sherman Alexie's 2007 National Book Award winner, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, the collection is the written expression of American Indian history and cultural identity from a time before America was a sovereign nation to the present moment. ¶ Frequently, the copy of a particular title included in this collection would be the "best" copy available if it were offered for sale on the open market: there are numerous inscribed copies, association copies, and copies that belonged to notable authors or scholars with their notes. In short, it is a virtually irreplicable collection with great research value, and also substantial historical value. .

Moselius, Svenska kopparstickare och etsare 1500-1944 (1944), s. 116, 117. | Gunnar Jungmarker, "Beskrivande förteckning över Jacob Gillbergs gravyrer", Meddelanden för grafisk konst, 8 (1929), kat. nr 48. | Jfr. Carl David Moselius, Louis Masreliez (1923), s. 94-95 & s. 220 (bilaga III:C, kat. nr 3). Tillsammans i ny ram, förgylld med bladguld. Syrafri passepartout.. Den tidigaste interiör som Masreliez utförde för Gustav III är från 1785-86, det s. k. yttre divansrummet eller divansförmaket på Stockholms slott, en entresolerad salong i kungens lilla våning. Det var det första rummet i pompejansk stil i Sverige. Dessa två gravyrer av Gillberg far och son återger de centrala rektangulära motiven ur fondväggens pannåer. Masreliez' originalteckningar finns bevarade i Nationalmuseum, den ena med konstnärens påskrift: "Peint au Chateau du Roy en Stockholm en 1785 par L. Masreliez / ce dessin est gravé par le Professeur Gilberg".Även Masreliez' väggmålningar har bevarats, men inte på sin ursprungliga plats. De ingick i en rekonstruktion av divansförmaket som ställdes ut på Stockholms slott 2006

        Under The Dome signed limited edition in case (+ reader's copy)

      New York: Simon & Schuster. F/F. 2009. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 10, 20, 24. 9781439173879 . Signed. 1st edition/1st printing. NEW BOOK, fine and unread. True 1st edition, released 11-10-09 by the publisher before other formats, editions, or the trade edition. SIGNED by Stephen King, this book is one of the unnumbered but limited to 1500 signed limited edition copies sold out by the publisher prior to release. This signed limited edition includes a set of 27 cards in their own box designed and drawn by Matthew Diffee, 4-color endpapers which depict the area in which the novel takes place drawn in map format by Paul J. Pugliese, wrap-around dustjacket art which is based on a photo by Ray Brown, an orange with gold flecks paper belly band which is affixed to the dustjacket, black cloth over boards binding with white spine printing and an embossed dog on the lower front panel, and a sewn in silk ribbon bookmark. The shrinkwrap with its publisher label stating what the book is and its price, and the original publisher's box the book was shipped in are included. A custom slipcase addressing the problems inherent in such a thick book where weak hinges develop from the text block sagging has been designed and constructed and now houses the book safely. This custom slipcase contains an ivory satin-covered text pages support block (very smooth, so the lower page edges can slide across it safely without snagging and yet rest on it while the book is in the case) with grooves on each side for the lower edges of the book's binding and lower spine edge, with the whole inside of the slipcase lined in the same ivory colored satin to prevent any rubbing or color transfer to the page edges. There is also a thumb-hole in the enclosed back end of the case so no vacuum lock is created when inserting or removing the book from the case. The case was built so the book could be safely housed outside of the publisher's shrinkwrap since shrinkwrap does nothing to prevent text block sag with accompanying weak hinges, and can also cause problems with moisture or mold trapped inside it. The book's shrinkwrap, with its publisher's label, has been preserved and folded into an archival glassine envelope, and it and the still shrinkwrapped (which should be removed eventually by the book's owner) box with the cards are now housed in a separate small compartment built onto the top of the book's slipcase - which has both a silver ribbon pull for removing them easily and also a silver ribbon with velcro fastener at the open end to keep them safely in the compartment. The slipcase is covered with a dark gray matt finish paper over boards, complementing the book's dustjacket, and has the front panel of a later printing hardcover trade edition on one side, which front panel is the same as the signed limited edition dustjacket except that it has no belly band. The unread later printing trade edition (without a dustjacket since used on the slipcase and bound in paper-covered boards instead of cloth) is included for your reading pleasure so the signed limited edition can remain unread and pristine. The signed limited edition has been opened only for photographing of signature and copyright pages, and its dustjacket is now safely enclosed in an archival, removable, clear dustjacket protector. The whole package - the signed limited edition book, its dustjacket, the slipcase, the cards and their box, the reading copy of the book - is all new, with no faults. The publisher's original shipping carton has slight surface scuffing from shipment, but the shipping label is intact, as is the carton itself. ; 9-1/2" x 6-1/2"; 1074 pages; Signed by Author .

      One of only 1500 copies of the 1893 2 volume edition. These books are in good condition. There is some staining to the bottom edges of the books and some yellowing to the spines. There is a signature in each as well as erased crayon markings to the endpapers of each book. Both books still contain their rare original sewn in markers, which are almost always missing. The bindings are tight and there are no loose pages. Widely considered to be Beardsley's masterpiece. Reasonable offers may be considered for certain books. Discounts available for multiple purchases.

        Epithalamion in nuptias Maximiliani regis et Blanchae Mariae reginae Romanorum

      [Paris]: [Georg Wolf and Thielman Kerver], [1500 per GW, but possibly earlier]. Disbound. Quarto; 6 leaves, Aaa\6. 41 lines per page. Disbound. Minor foxing. Small abrasion in AAA6, affecting one word of text. Reference: GW M2239610; not in ISTC; not in HC, etc. When the German ex-pat printer Georg Wolf died in Paris in 1499, having established no fewer than four presses in that city, his partner Thielman Kerver took over the equipment and the business. Kerver was known principally as a stationer (effectively, a bookseller) before he went into business with Wolf in 1497, and even in the sixteenth century his name sometimes appears in colophons as "bibliopola," or bookseller, as well as printer. He inherited Wolf's pioneering woodcut criblé initials, a technique of producing a white letter on a black background decorated with tiny white dots. The technique was popularized later in the sixteenth century by Geoffrey Tory, Philippe de Colines, and Henri Estienne. & It is not clear why Kerver published the oration that Jason De Mayno had delivered at the wedding of Bianca Maria Sforza and the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I at Innsbruck six years (and several printings) earlier. The epithalamion echoed around Italy in 1494 and 1495, and then it was revived in this printing before being picked up again for inclusion in several early sixteenth-century oratorical anthologies. & As in most other editions of the oration, there is a faux "colophon" that reads "Actum Ispurch die vii maii Anno a nata li christiano M.cccc.xciiii" (done at Innsbruck on May 7, 1494; the weird used of "Ispurch" instead of the city's Latin name "Oenipontum" appears in all editions, although the date is not constant). The criblé initial was diagnostic to determine the true printer and approximate year, which is confirmed in the Gesamtkatalog der Weigendrucke, based on a single copy in the library of Palma de Mallorca. &

Masreliez lärde sig etsa för Jean Eric Rehn och Per Floding på 1760-talet och dedicerade sina tidigaste blad till anhöriga och familjens vänner. Någon egentlig marknad för svensk originalgrafik hade inte utvecklats ännu; den hade fortfarande en intim karaktär och stannade huvudsakligen inom en liten krets av vänner och samlare.

      Akvatintetsning. 19,6 × 12,8 cm. (Bladet 28 × 22 cm.) Fint exemplar med råkanter. Litteratur: E. & C. Hultmark & C. D. Moselius, Svenska kopparstickare och etsare 1500-1944 (1944), s. 247. Ny ram, förgylld med bladguld. Syrafri passepartout.. Beträffande detta blad bygger attributionen till Nordqvist på Kungl. bibliotekets katalogisering, som återkommer i Hultmark & Moselius (1944). Frölich förmodar däremot att gravyren är av Heland (se Bröderna Elias och Johan Fredrik Martins gravyrer (1939), noten s. 92). Där redovisas även Gunnar Wengströms uppfattning att den är av Johan Petter Cumelin. Pehr Nordquist är fr. a. känd som satirisk och godmodig tecknare. Han utförde endast ett fåtal grafiska blad och hans mest kända verk, Kaffebeslaget från 1800, graverades av Martin Rudolf Heland. Nordquist reste utomlands 1801 med stöd av bl. a. Gustaf Trolle-Bonde på Säfstaholm och Pehr Tham till Dagsnäs. Han kom till Rom 1804 men insjuknade kort senare i lungsot och avled i Neapel dit han rest för att söka bot

The 351 designs appearing in the first edition required eighteen months for the artist to complete. Of this, Beardsley's first major work, John Lewis states: "In Le Morte d'Arthur Beardsley learnt his job, but .. if he had never illustrated another book, this edition of Morte d'Arthur could stand as a monument of decorative book illustration" [The Twentieth Century Book, pp. 148-149].

Venice 1500 Ambrosius Macrobius was a fifth-century AD Roman philosopher. His works had great popularity through the Middle Ages and his text refers to a world map which was first printed in 1483. "His neoplatonic commentary on Cicero includes, among many references to the pseudo-sciences, a geographic concept which is different from that of Ptolemy. The inhabited world north of the Equator is balanced by a southern continent and divided from it by water" (Shirley). First printed edition is Brescia, 1483. Our copy is the last of four incunabula editions and is by Shirley marked "Block 4" where the image represented by the incised surface has been reversed. It is a woodcut with handcut lettering. There are several later 16th century Venice editions which show the popularity of his works, but for a collector it is important to acquire one of the pre-1501 incunabula editions.. In a very good condition. Some light browning or fingermarks, a few leaves with contemporary marginalia. The leaves of quires e1 and e6 printed on thinner paper.
