Albrecht DURER (Norimberga 1471 - 1528)
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 mem … [Click Below for Full Description]

Before his death, Erasmus (1466–1536) divided his writings into nine ordines (categories) for posthumous publication. This is the second edition of his collected works, first published in nine volumes by Froben in 1540. Like the original, this set includes additions by authors from the Dutch humanist's international circle and portraits of the same, as well as => myriad engravings after Holbein. The printer, Pieter van der Aa (1659–1733), was an apprentice of Daniel van Gaasbeeck (fl. 1655–92) and primarily known for maps and travel books.    The text in all volumes is in Latin with some Greek, printed in roman and italic, mostly double-column with sidenotes and many large woodcut initials and tailpieces, as well as some engraved headpieces. Vol. I has both a general title-page and a volume title-page; each of the volume title-pages is printed in red and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jacob Gillberg & Carl Gustaf Gillberg (1724-1793 resp. 1774-1855). Efter Louis Masreliez (Paris 1748-Stockholm 1810)
Två akvatint-etsningar. 18 × 30 cm resp. 17,5 × 30 cm. (Bladstorlek 24,5 × 34,8 resp. 24,5 × 38 cm.) Motiven omgivna av flera ramlinjer, en bård akvarellerad i gult. Välbevarade exemplar. Signerade i plåten: "Dessiné par L: M: / Gravé en lavis par J. Gillberg" resp. "[...] par C. G. Gillberg". Litteratur: E. & C. Hultmark & C. D. 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

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 centuri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mayno, Jason de
[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 " … [Click Below for Full Description]

Louis Masreliez (Paris 1748-Stockholm 1810)
Etsning på blågrått papper. Med tillägnan etsad i plåten nedanför bilden i konstnärens handstil: "Premier essai dedié a mon cher père". 16,5 × 13 cm. Litteratur: E. & C. Hultmark & C. D. Moselius, Svenska kopparstickare och etsare 1500-1944 (1944), s. 232. Ngt dekorerad förgylld ram (Lövhammar). Syrafri passepartout.. "Ett första försök, tillägnat min kära fader." 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.

Pehr Nordquist (1771-Neapel 1805) eller Martin Rudolf Heland (1765-1814)
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

A KEY WORK IN THE HISTORY OF BOOK ILLUSTRATION AND A DEFINING WORK OF THE 1890's DECADENCE. John M. Dent commissioned the twenty-year-old Beardsley to produce this edition of Le Morte D'Arthur. 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..

Illuminated miniature on vellum
Bruges: 1500. Single leaf, image measures 98 x 68 cms with small margins, painted on vellum and heightened with gold, verso blank, framed and glazed in a standing frame. Slight smudge to the tip of the nose, otherwise in good condition. A lovely, haunting image of Christ the Savior, holding an orb of translucent crystal and making the traditional gesture of blessing with his right hand. ?'Salvator Mundi?", or Savior of the World, is a subject in iconography depicting Christ with his right hand raised in blessing and his left hand holding an orb surmounted by a cross, known as a globus cruciger. The latter symbolizes the Earth, and the whole composition has strong eschatological undertones. The theme was made popular by Northern painters such as Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling, and Albrecht DŸrer. There are also several versions of the theme attributed to Titian, notably the one in the Hermitage Museum. In France, Leonardo da Vinci painted the subject for Louis XII of France between 1506 and 1513. Christopher de Hamel writes: ?'Your leaf was illuminated in Bruges around 1500, by the workshop which produced Vatican Vat.Lat. 10293, Brussels Bibl.Roy. IV.237, Milan Ambrosiana, Ms S.P. 11.189, and others with distinctive architectual borders, described in B.

Sacon, Lyon, 1500. La mer des Hystoires ~ Traduction de Rudimentum novitiorum A Lyon, Jean Sacon, s.d. circa 1500. Incunable. In-fol., 1 feuille 6ème Age caractères gothiques, à deux colonnes, Chronologie et histoire de France avec une représetation du Pape Grégoire V et de l'empereur Otton III. Grégoire V (Bruno von Kärnten ou Brunon de Carinthie), originaire de Saxe, né en 973, pape du 3 mai 996 au 18 février 999. C'est l'empereur germanique Otton III qui l'a fait désigner permettant ainsi au premier pape d'origine allemande d'accéder au Saint-Siège. Dans les derniers jours du mois de septembre 996, quelques mois seulement après qu'il a été grâcié par l'empereur Otton III, l'ancien préfet urbain Crescentius entreprend de faire chasser Grégoire V de Rome. Crescentius complote avec l'archevêque de Plaisance et ancien conseiller de Théophane, Jean Philagathos, et fait élire ce dernier antipape sous le nom de Jean XVI. Les deux imposteurs sont cruellement châtiés par Grégoire V et Otton III en avril 997, mais ce châtiment exemplaire leur vaut la malédiction de l'ermite Nil de Rossano. Après un pontificat de 2 ans et 9 mois et demi, Grégoire V meurt ; il est enterré dans l'ancienne basilique Saint-Pierre. Belle page (recto/verso) sur les principaux évènements du royaume de Franceet des principaux évènements de cette époque. La "Mer des histoires" est une adaptation en français moyen du "Rudimentum novitiorum" publié à Lübeck en 1475, par un anonyme, qui fut chanoine de Mello en Beauvaisis [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Illuminated manuscript leaf on vellum
German: c. 1500. 132 x 155 mm. Matted. An intriguing painting, showing the instruments of the Passion, a crowing cock, the head of Judas, the thirty pieces of silver &c. A somewhat surreal piece, with the head and some of the instruments floating in the air against a rich blue background, Christ standing before a tomb clad in loincloth and red cloak with a blue cloak on the tomb, a ladder and pillar at each side. Some surface wear and damage within the image which is also cropped slightly, but an interesting and unusual painting.

. . Der "Amtliche Bericht" umfasste nicht alle Gruppen der Weltausstellung, die einen ihrer Schwerpunkte auf dem Erziehungs- und Bildungswesen gehabt hatte, sondern beschränkte sich vor allem auf die technischen u. gewerblichen Aspekte. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die drei über 1500 S. umfassenden Hefte über die Chemische Industrie, die von August Wilhelm Hofmann in Zusammenarbeit mit vielen namhaften Chemikern der Zeit herausgegeben worden sind. Außerdem erwähnenswert sind die folgenden Beiträger: Anton Springer: Die bildenden Künste der Gegenwart, Carl B. Lorck: Graphische Künste, Rudolf Weber: Papier-Industrie, Johann Wilhelm Schwedler u. Hermann Sternberg: Bau- und Civil-Ingenieurwesen, Oscar Paul: Musikalische Instrumente sowie Justus Brinckmann: Holz-Industrie. Vieweg Verlagskatalog (1986) S. 42f. - Vgl.

Straßburg oder Freiburg, um 1500.. 13x10,8 cm. Vor einer halb hohen Steinmauer sitzt die Jungfrau 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.

Referring to his best known character, Percy Dovetonsils, Kovacs writes to his M.C.A. agent regarding a Warner Brothers contract. He adds one holograph correction in the first line which reads, "I had a call today from someone in New York, a [ he crossed out 'the' and replaced it with 'a'] record company. The connection was not too good, however I asked them to contact you…they are of the idea that they want a Percy Dovetonsils thing, and I said that I would do it on the one condition that I do it exactly as I want it…Regarding the Warner Bros…I think it is time that they are contacted with this ridiculous letter that they have sent me…and are told that I have now consummated my part in the contractual arrangement…but if they will turn over the art-work which I selected and the tape they can forget the $1500.00, otherwise they owe me, $1,500.00…." He signs, "Ernie." This letter is accompanied with a letter to his agent from Warner Brothers. Uncommon and desirable. Percy Dovetonsils was one of Kovac's most popular and memorable characters. Condition; Two punch holes at top margin. Percy Dovetonsils, the lisping "poet laureate" character that Kovacs played, is one of his most well remembered ones. Created in 1950, Percy Dovetails is always introduced with a harp music and sips martinis when he reads his poetry. [examples can be seen on youtube] The record company telephone call that Kovacs mentions to his agent is probably from Vanguard Records. In 1961 Kovacs recorded an album of Percy reading his poetry for Vanguard, entitled "Perc … [Click Below for Full Description]
