PONTANO (Giovanni Gioviano) ou PONTANUS (Ioannis Iovianus)
(Impressum Venitiis per Bernardinum Vercellensem) [Venise, Bernardino Rosso], 1501. In-folio (310 x 205 mm), plein vélin rigide, dos lisse, pièce de titre de vélin doré, tranches mouchetées rouges (rel. du XVIIe siècle), (148) f. dernier blanc [sign. a8 b-z6 &8]. Première et seule édition collective publiée du vivant de l’auteur contenant les dix traités et dialogues philosophiques de l’humaniste et homme politique italien Giovanni Pontano. Natif de Cerreto di Spoleto en Ombrie, Giovanni Pontano (1429-1503) entra au service de la dynastie d’Aragon à Naples, mais tomba en disgrâce en 1495 pour avoir négocié la paix avec les Français. Devenu directeur de l’Académie de Naples qui porte son nom ("Pontaniana"), il est l’une des principales figures de l’humanisme italien et l’un des plus éminents auteurs latins de la période. Cette édition a été imprimée à Venise par Berardino Rosso ("Bernardinum Vercellensem" au colophon) en caractères romains sur une colonne de 42 lignes. "Outre le mérite d’un style élégant et naturel, les ouvrages philosophiques de Pontanus offrent le premier exemple d’une manière de philosopher libre et dégagée des préjugés, qui ne suit d’autres lumières que celles de la raison et de la vérité" (Michaud, XXXV, 363). "Avec Pontano, on a affaire à une variante tout à fait particulière de l'humanisme italien, qui reflète bien l'ambiance de la cour de Naples, tout animée d'un goût pour le luxe et le plaisir et d'un véritable amour pour toutes les manifestations de la vie et de la beauté. Dans cette œuvre, la religion ne tient qu'une place très modeste et l’on a p … [Click Below for Full Description]

SALICETUS, Nicolaus
Venice: Lucantonio Giunta Florentini, 1501. 1501 Vision of St Bernard Clairvaux INCUNABLE Cistercian Salicetus Antidotarius Nicolaus Salicetus was a 15th-century German Cistercian monk known for his devotional prayer book ‘Antidotarius Animae’. This work was written at a time when the ‘Vision of Saint Bernard’ was at its height – a vision of a monk and a nun kneeling at the feet of Christ on the Cross covered in blood. This theme was popular during the 13th-century during Bernard of Clairvaux’s ministry; the story has it that he was praying in church alone when the figure of Christ in the church leaned down and embraced the monk. Salicetus’s ‘Antidotarius’ claims to reproduce the prayer that prompted Christ’s embrace of Bernard. The prayer includes devotions on each of Jesus’s wounds, focusing primarily on the blood of Christ. A portion of Salicetus’s devotion is as follows: “Wounds of blood-red ruby droplets, Driven deep-set as in goblets: These inscribe upon my heartbeat, Make my joining to you replete— At every moment loving you. Whoso comes to you to drink deep And embraces these your pierced feet, Healed of want, departs from this source Granted grace of lasting recourse; With kisses wets your feet anew.” A fascinating and truly remarkable incunable printing from Venice by Lucantonio Giunta Florentini. Item number: #3741 Price: $2500 SALICETUS, Nicolaus Liber meditationū : cōfessionuz̦ : ac orationum deuotarum : qui Anthidotarius anime dicitur : cum labula insertus.

Rosa, Giuseppe.
New York City & elsewhere: , 1902–18, 1501. New York City & elsewhere, 1902–18. . Here in the business archive of Sig. Rosa is the story of one Italian immigrant to the U.S. at the beginning of the 20th century, helping other Italian transplants to learn a skill and secure a decent livelihood in their adopted land, and at the same time participating in Italian immigrant social and benevolent activities — and gaining an international reputation as a teacher and tailor.    Sig. Rosa (born 1873) was an émigré who operated a tailoring school and mail-order tailoring instruction company with the main operation on McDougal Street, NYC, and branches in Newark, NJ, and Chicago. In 1914, he published a bilingual pamphlet, L'arte del tagliatore; trattato italiano-inglese, tecnico, pratico, professionale, per disegnatori e tagliatori sarti / The Cutter's Art; an Italian-English, Technical, Practical and Professional Treatise for Designers and Cutters (New York [Nicoletti Bros. Press]), without a doubt to aid in establishing his credentials as a teacher of tailoring. Only two libraries worldwide (NYPL, UChicago) report owning a copy.    The present archive (0.4 linear feet) contains hundreds of letters addressed to Professor Rosa from students in the United States and Panama; other letters from professional tailoring associations and individual tailors in Italy, Panama, the U.S., and Argentina; manuscript tailoring diagrams; manuscripts of his instructional manuals; and printed advertising ephemera from his school. There are a small number of photographs, including one of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Baldassarre Gabiano, 1501. FIRST COUNTERFEIT LYONNAISE EDITION. 8vo. Three works in one, ff. 188 unnumbered, a-y 8 z 4 A 8 , separate t-p to each. Italic letter, little Roman. Slight age browning, first gathering with small grease stain, occasional minor spots. A fine, well-margined copy, on thick paper, in contemporary polished vellum, yapp edges. Bookplates of Eduardo J. Bullrich and Pierre Bergé to front pastedown, 'A Barber 136 d' and '674' ms to first t-p. In folding box. Although the colophon at the end of the 'canzoni and sonetti' states that the edition was printed by Aldus in 1501, it was actually published by Baldassare Gabiano in Lyon, probably between 1501 and 1502. It is typographically superior to Aldus's edition (Brunet IV, 543), which was the first to feature his trademark italic type. Although Gabiano's edition lacks Aldus's letter to the reader and the 'errata', the latter were incorporated into the text. The lack of any information on the printer and city of publication suggests that it was intended for sale on the Italian market in the Veneto and the Papal states, where Aldus's typographical privilege was in force. This first counterfeit with unnumbered leaves differs from a second one published c.1502, with page numbers in both Roman and Arabic type. Fine copy of the first Lyonnaise counterfeit Aldine edition of Petrarch's vernacular works--foundational texts for the establishment of Italian as a prestigious literary language.

Boethius, (Pseudo-):
Köln, (am Ende:) Quentell, 1501. 66 nn. Bll. mit großem Titelholzschnitt. VD 16, B6423. Voulliéme, Köln 1184. - Bis zum 15. Jahrhundert galt der spätantike Boethius als Autor dieser Schrift. Vor dem 13. Jahrhundert wurde das Werk niergendwo erwähnt und es existierte auch keine Handschrift. Das Vorwort, in dem Boethius sich als Autor vorstellt, zeigt nur geringe Kenntnisse der Werke des spätantiken Boethius, auch deutet die Schilderung der universitären Einrichtungen von Paris auf einen mittelalterlichen Autor hin. In der Forschung wird davon ausgegangen, daß der Text um ca. 1240 in Paris entstanden ist. Der Text selbst ist eine gute und genaue Quelle zum schulischen und universitären Leben im Paris des Mittelalters. (vgl. Pseudo - Boece, De Disciplina Scolarium, edition critique par Olga Weijers. Leiden 1976). - Der hübsche Titelholzschnitt zeigt einen Lehrer mit 4 Schülern. - Zur Kollation: a - l6 (Lage e verbunden). - Hs. Besitzvermerk am Titel.

ST. THOMAS AQUINAS
ST. THOMAS AQUINAS. Aurea Divi Thome aquinatis de ordine predicatorum doctoris Angelici Summa contra gentiles. Venice: S. [Bevilaqua] for A. Calcedonius, November 7, 1501. Rare post-incunable of Aquinas' work 'Summa Contra Gentiles', perhaps the best known of his theological treatises after the Summa Theologica. Originally written as a kind of handbook to be used in Muslim mission territories, the work has been often cited throughout the centuries for its keen and clear theological insights. This early publication from the press in Venice is quite handsome, with a large wood-cut of the archangel Gabriel adorning the title-page. Large 8vo (21.5 x 15cm), [xii] + CCXLIII leaves (some misnumbered, but complete). Woodcut initials throughout, wide margins. Bound in vellum. [GW M46564. - Edit 16, CNCE 33852. - Sander 7298 (erroneously 1500). - Not in the BM STC and Adams.].

Generalmente conosciuto come Dittamondo, una volgarizzazione di ?Dicta mundi?, questo lungo poema in terza rima è l'opera principale di Fazio degli Uberti. Di ispirazione dantesca è il viaggio del poeta in Europa, Egitto e Terra Santa sotto la guida di Solino, un antico geografo. E L'opera rimase incompiuta a metà del libro IV, senza la prevista sezione sull'Asia. Cfr. Treccani, "Poeta e geografo della stessa famiglia fiorentina ghibellina di Farinata, nato a Pisa all'inizio del sec. XIV, morto nel 1367 circa. Fu al servizio dei Visconti e degli Scaligeri. Appartenne all'illustre famiglia ghibellina esiliata da Firenze nel 1267. Nel 1345 F. cominciò il Dittamondo, poema enciclopedico di sei libri in terzine incatenate; argomento è un viaggio attraverso l'Europa, le parti più vicine dell'Africa, la Palestina, pretesto all'esposizione di leggende, notizie geografiche e storiche, tratte da Solino, Plinio il Vecchio, Pomponio Mela, Orosio, Martin Polono, Isidoro di Siviglia, nonché da Ovidio e dalla Bibbia.

[Isabella I of Castille; Isabel de Castilla] [Clothes].
18 March 1501. Granada, Spain. Folio (310 x 230 mm). 1 ff., written on both sides with six-line endorsement signed by the royal secretary Pedro Almazan. Housed in a red cloth chemise inside quarter red morocco slipcase, spine lettered and tooled in gilt. Excellent condition.- Document signed "I the Queen" (Yo la Reyna), addressed to her steward, Pancho de Paredes, ordering additions to her personal wardrobe. Dated at Grenada, Spain, on 18 March 1501. Although Isabel (1451 - 1504) is more widely known for having enabled Columbus world-changing exploration, taking back Granada, seriously introducing the Inquisition in Spain, this is a curious insight to her personal side, her taste for clothing. Isabella I, Queen and unifier of the Spanish kingdoms, patroness of Christopher Columbus, and her husband Ferdinand were noted for the magnificence of their royal court. The queen was particularly fond of fine clothing and jewels and was famous throughout Europe for her superb wardrobe. She and her ladies in waiting set fashions for several decades. In this unique documented she orders a new supply of linen to be worn with various court dresses which are described in detail, showing the great personal interest the Queen took in her wardrobe and giving an unusual glimpse into the private life of a celebrated European monarch. At the time of writing, 1501, Isabella was fifty years old and had been on the Spanish throne for twenty-six years. Her characteristic state attire at the time has been described as a "gown with a tight bodice and a girdle tied in a looped knot at the fron … [Click Below for Full Description]

Villanova, Arnaldus de (1248 - 1314).
Venetiis, Bernardinus Venetus de Vitalibus, 1501. 4º (21,4 x 14,7 cm.) [12] leaves. Signatures: A-C4. Device to title page of an eagle looking to our left, holding a shielf, and with the initials 'F' and 'D' either side of its head. XVIIIth century marbled paper covers. Modern cloth case. Rare first edition. USTC records only seven copies in libraries. Arnald of Villanova is mainly known today for his scientific works on medicine and astrology. As Smith suggests, he war probably led to a study of the computus through its relationship to Astrology. "There was no other edition. In spite of the words "noviter impressum", I know of no earlier edition and indeed these words were not infrequently used when a book was first printed. This work is strictly a computus and covers only calendar computations (epact and golden number for finding dates of Easter, etc.) and does not directly address arithmetical calculation. It is 'among the prominent computi printed in the 16yth century. This is a good example of the works on the ecclesiastical calendar in use in the Middle Ages. It employs only the Roman numerals and gives no treatment of computation." Smith, History of Mathematics & Rara aritmetica. Palau 365596. Sander 609. USTC 801626.

QUINTILIANUS, Marcus Fabius.
, . . Adams Q52; Ahmanson-Murphy 106; BMC STC Italian, p. 546; Renouard, Aldus, p. 68, no. 5. The first Aldine edition (the only one produced by Aldus Manutius himself) of the complete text of Quintilian's De oratoria, on the teaching of speaking and writing. It covers not only the theory and practice of rhetoric, but also the foundational education and development of the orator himself. For Quintilian, the ideal orator or rhetorician was skilled in speaking and also a moral man. The Institutiones can therefore be described as a treatise on education, a manual of rhetoric, a reader's guide to the best authors and a handbook of the moral duties of the orator. Although much of what he writes is similar to Cicero, Quintilian emphasizes teaching. He was recognized by his contemporaries and strongly influenced the schools that the Romans spread throughout the Empire until the fifth century. The present edition is well printed and set entirely in one size of italic type, a style Aldus introduced in 1501.With an occasional early marginal annotation in brown ink and a later owner's inscription. Slightly browned throughout and with occasional water stains, but still in good condition and with generous margins. The binding has been rebacked and is chafed around the edges, but the gold-tooled centrepiece is well-preserved.

WANN, PAUL
Monaci [Munich]: Johannes Schopiser [Hans Schobser], [ca. 1501]. This is a collection of Lenten sermons "on preserving mankind from sin" by one of the most influential German preachers of the period, here in an uncommon colored blind-stamped binding. Wann (ca. 1420-89) received a doctorate in theology at the University of Vienna, and served as the cathedral preacher at Saint Stephen's Cathedral in Passau. His sermons were admired both for their erudition and for their inspiring rhetoric, and printed editions were popular throughout the 16th century. Printer Hans Schobser began his career in Augsburg, but moved his press to Munich in 1500. He was one of the most prolific printers of German-language material in the first half of the 16th century, and in the 1520s, he became one of the chief printers of Reformation material in Bavaria. We rarely see pigskin binding of this period that are colored; generally, any dyes have rubbed away over the centuries. Ours is no doubt faded from an original rich red, but is still appealing. We have not been able to identify the stamps, but it is likely of German origin.. 205 x 140 mm. (8 x 5 1/2"). [106] leaves (final blank).

1501. Original attractively matted and hand coloured numismatic print, titled: 'Isabella Regina Daniae Christierni VX Phil Hisp Reg Fil' an en profil portrait of Isabella of Austria (1501-1526) was the Archduchess of Austria, and Infanta eof Castille and Aragon, and was queen of Denmark, Sweden and Norway as the wife of King Christian II. The rear of the medal is also shown, with a nude woman standing on a ball on water, waving a shawl/banner. Etching / stipple engraving on a verge type handlaid paper, with modern handcolouring. Description: This print originates from Frans Van Mieris' 'Histori der Nederlandsche Vorsten Uit de Huijzen van Beijere, Borgonje en Oostenrijk' (The Hague: Pieter de Hondt, 1732-35). The plates in this work are not typically coloured. In recent times the finely engraved coins have been meticulously hand coloured, been given a black background to make them stand out and have been beautifully matted in expensive matting. Ready to frame.Artists and Engravers: This image engraved by an unknown engraver after the design of Frans van Mieris. Frans van Mieris (1689-1763) was a Dutch painter, like his father, grandfather and uncle before him. He was also an avid numismatic collector, which is clearly reflected in this work. Condition: Very good, given age. Professionally matted. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Not examined out of matting. Storage location: DPO86-04 The overall size is ca. 13 x 11 inch. The image size is ca. 5.3 x 3.5 inch. The overall size is ca. 33 x 28 cm. The image size is ca. 13.5 x 9 cm.

He 'uses names and examples from the past as protective covers for his exposés of contemporary vice and folly'. (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 501) His main theme is the dissolution of the social fabric. He had a lasting influence on neolatin and vernacular writers of the Renaissance and later centuries.
