Frühe Ausgabe der zuerst 1493 erschienenen, von dem italienischen Humanisten Ermolao Barbaro (1454-1493) besorgten Ausgabe. - „Melas Werk gilt als das älteste geographische Werk, das auf Latein geschrieben wurde [...]. Es wurde von Gelehrten und Wissbegierigen [u.a. Francesco Petrarca u. Giovanni Boccaccio, die sich Abschriften anfertigen ließen] von jeher hochgeschätzt, denn in Melas Werk werden viele Örtlichkeiten, wie der Taunus, Trier, der Main, Teile des Bodensees und Skandinavien, Gebirge und Flüsse das erste Mal erwähnt.

Er berichtet realistische Details aus Fauna und Flora, in der aber auch phantastische Fabelwesen auftauchen, er stellt die Bewohner einzelner Gegenden vor, und erzählt ihre Geschichte, von ihren Bräuchen und den verschiedenen Religionen, vor allem rund um das Mittelmeer“ (Wikipedia). - Einband leicht fleckig.

Statius
Venice: Aldus Manutius, 1502. Very Nice Copy with Fine Binding: text in Latin and Greek: Excellent Condition : complete with Orthographia at rear and the Dolphin and Anchor Woodcut : Jacob Stuart *round* Bookplate. Very nicely bound copy of Aldus Manutius' early edition of Statius complete with Manutius' adjuration against plagiarism, the books of Statius' work and the Orthographia. This has a leather binding with gilt decoration and lettering on the front, a mirrored decoration on the rear and florets in the bands on the spine as well as a wonderful turndown with a repeating trefoil design. Gorgeous vivid marbled endpapers in deep maroon and blue front and rear are background at the front for the bookplate of Jacob Stuart (Jacobus Stuart Baronettus Carolus) which looks to have been trimmed to a circle. Jacob Stuart would have been the child of Sir James Stuart of Canada who became a baronet of the United Kingdom in 1840. There is also writing across the top of the title page, quite faint. All three edges are gilt with some slight discoloration on the top edge. There is some foxing within most noticeable at the front pages and the occasional spot. Printed in single column in Greek and Latin in the famous italic font designed by Pietro Bembo. Some pencil notations on verso of ffep, browning to the papers due to age.

Plein maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs orné, double filet d'encadrement et roulette dorés sur les plats avec des fleurons aux angles, tranches dorées (reliure du début du 18e siècle). 1). Précieux recueil d'opuscules juridiques, imprimés en caractères gothiques à Cologne dans les premières années du 16e siècle et réunis sous un même titre à la faveur du projet éditorial désigné par Stintzing sous le nom de "Kölner Sammelwerke" ("le recueil de Cologne"). Ce projet, peut-être unique en son genre, avait mobilisé plusieurs imprimeurs et libraires de la ville pour produire et assembler différents opuscules de droit très prisés des étudiants et des juristes. Publiés aussi bien séparément que sous la forme de recueils plus ou moins complets, ces opuscules ne portaient ni date ni adresse d'impression, et ils présentaient la particularité extraordinaire de paraître issus de la même imprimerie et de ne constituer qu'un seul et même volume, quand en réalité leur élaboration et leur réunion sous forme de recueil était le fruit d'une collaboration complexe entre plusieurs imprimeurs et libraires. Le typographe Cornelius von Zierickzee est le seul dont le nom apparaisse fugacement dans l'une des variantes du recueil, mais parmi les imprimeurs ayant vraisemblablement participé au projet figurent Heinrich Quentell et ses héritiers, Martin von Werden, Johann von Landen et Hermann von Bong … [Click Below for Full Description]

Caoursin, Guillaume
Strasbourg: Bartholomäus Kistler, 23 August 1502. Strasbourg: Bartholomäus Kistler, 23 August [1502]. Extremely rare polemic pamphlet about the Ottoman threat. This is the German translation of a treatise by the Franco-Flemish historiograph Guillaume Caoursin (c. 1430-1501). His account of the fictive correspondence between the Ottoman emperor Daglosius and his Beylerbeys (governors of major Turkish provinces) emphasises on the Ottoman threat, and, at the same time, confirms the power of the European countries and the church. Sebastian Brant edited this pamphlet as a favour to Cardinal Raymond de Gurck, who sojourned in Germany to raise money for a crusade. Caoursin was vice-chancellor of the Order of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem (Knights Hospitallers). The main seat of this order was in Rhodes from 1310 until 1523. Especially after the fall of Constantinople (1453) Rhodes and its neighbour island Cyprus became the most important Christian outposts in the Mediterranean Sea. When in 1480 the Knights of Rhodes succeeded in preventing a Turkish attack they were granted common attention and admiration. Already in the year of the siege the Master of the Order, Pierre d'Abusson testified to emperor Friedrich III the miraculous events that helped to fight and to overwhelm the Ottomans. The vice-chancellor Caoursin wrote a report of the siege, Obsidionis Rhodiae urbis descriptio (Description of the siege of Rhodes), which quickly became a 'bestseller' translated in many languages and repeatedly printed. According to that account the Hospitaller knights - in order to fright … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mais la Pharsale demeure également comme un modèle d'éloquence et d'émotion oratoire. L'ouvrage se termine par une brève biographie de l'auteur en fin de volume. Cet ouvrage est également l'un des premiers imprimés à avoir bâti la notoriété de l'éditeur vénitien. C'est en effet en 1501 qu'Alde Manuce introduisit l'usage du caractère penché, appelé italique ou aldino, dont le modèle fut donné par l'écriture de Pétrarque. Il commanda l'exécution de ces caractères au talentueux graveur Francesco Griffo. Ce fut d'ailleurs à cette époque que l'imprimeur commença la série de chefs-d'œuvre imprimés en petit format, que l'on pouvait emporter pour le voyage, initiative qui fut alors largement appréciée par le public. Agréable exemplaire en maroquin janséniste. Renouard, 33, Brunet III, 1198, Hoeffer XXXIII, 293-95

Elle fut confiée à l'humaniste Sébastien Brandt, l'auteur du fameux Narrenschiff. Celui-ci exhuma pour ce projet ambitieux plusieurs manuscrits retrouvés en Allemagne et joignit ses commentaires à ceux de cinq glossateurs, parmi lesquels figurent Cristoforo Landino et Antonio Mancinelli.

Dante Alighieri
[Venetiis: in Aedib Aldi, 1502. [252] leaves. a-z8, A-G8, H4. Small octavo. Full green French morocco, raised bands, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Set in Italic. Aldine anchor on colophon. One raised band nicked, careful sympathetic restoration of upper joint, light scattered foxing, faint old manuscript foliation of leaves, but a very good copy. Cloth slipcase and chemise. First Aldine edition, and the first edition of Dante in octavo format, based on a manuscript sent to Aldus by the Venetian humanist, Pietro Bembo. The edition is also notable for historians of typography as it marks the first utilization of the Aldine Anchor as Aldus's signature device -- although it does not appear in all copies, among them the earliest. The edition was such a success that it was soon counterfeited in such a faithful manner that close scrutiny of the final collation is necessary to distinguish the editions. With this edition, "it was as if the poem had never been printed before: the 15th-century vulgate was swept aside. Bembo's text was to become the basis for every subsequent edition of the Divine Comedy until the late 19th century" - Renaissance Dante in Print (1472 - 1629).

Pietro Mantegazza ad impensa Giovanni da Legnano. 4to, (190 x 136 mm). a-g8, h2, [58] leaves, with a large woodcut to title and woodcut initials throughout, text printed in double columns of 45 lines. Early 20th century full blue levant with spine lettered in gilt, all edges gilt, gilt dentelles, and double fly-leaves on Arches laid paper (one flyleaf detached, flyleaves with edge-tone), a touch of rubbing to extremities, old bibliographical clippings tipped on to pastedown and flyleaf, contents excellent with a mild and consistent age-tone and only a few minor instances of light soiling. 75,000 $ This edition appears to be the second edition in Italian of Mandeville s Travels to include a pictorial illustration. An earlier 1492 Florence edition also contained an illustrated title page but it was significantly different from the one in this Milan edition. The large wood engraving (Hazlitt) in this edition is divided by a river that runs through the middle of the woodcut, to the left there is a troop of cavalry while to the right a seated Roman emperor, protected by three soldiers, is faced by a kneeling figure attired in oriental apparel. The background consists of a fortified citadel facing towards the sea where several ships are depicted. The Travels of Sir John Mandeville first circulated in French, Anglo-French, and English, but was translated into many languages, from Danish to Gaelic to Latin.

Altri posseggono all'ultimo foglio una V rovesciata al posto della A di Aedibus nel colofone del primo stato; infine il retro del frontespizio che porta la colpa a "Alagueri" è stato corretto in alcune copie. La nostra copia ha l'impronta della stampante sul retro dell'ultimo foglio e la A di Aedibus non è corretta sul fronte e mantiene l'errore su "Alagueri", il primo stato dell'ultimo foglio e il primo stato del frontespizio.

First aldine edition of The Divine Comedy and first edition of Dante in small format. Italic printing (30 lines per page). This edition is the first to wear the famous anchor aldine on a small format. On the back of the title page: "Lo'nferno el Purgatorio and Paradiso di Dante Alaghieri", colophon: "VENETIIS IN AEDIB. ALDI ACCVRATISSIME. MEN. AVG. M.DII ".The Barbier-Mueller Foundation for the study of Italian Renaissance poetry makes it clear that there have not been two issues, but several states of certain leaflets. Thus, some copies are distinguished by the mark of the printer on the back of the last sheet; this mark was indeed ready during printing. Others possess at the last leaflet a V upside down in place of the A of Aedibus in the colophon of the first state; finally the back of the title page which bears the fault to "Alagueri" has been corrected in some copies.Our copy has the imprint of the printer on the back of the last sheet and the A of Aedibus not corrected on the front and keeps the fault to "Alagueri", the first state of the last sheet and the first state of the title page.Binding post (XVII century) in the mottled brown calf, back with five nerves decorated with boxes and gilded florets, all red edges.Back, bits and corners skillfully restored.Small wormhole without infringing the text of the first four leaflets.

Georg Schenck, 1502. Very good. Tight binding. Excellent condition of pages, no foxing and very light tanning. Two book plates from two different people are on front cover inside. I googled them and both had large collections of books from the 1500's. I have a dozen books or so I bought at an auction of this era. The people on the book plates were well known. One book plate is art itself and I have found auction sales for just the plate. I am not a book dealer so please ask questions and look carefully at pictures. I will be happy to send more pictures if you would like. Similar book on google $6500! I bought a collection of books from the 1500's and 1600's years ago. This is part of the collection. I have listed about six so far. There is a book exactly like it on line (google it) for $6,500.00. I am not a dealer, just a collector and I am selling some of my items now. This book has 24 pages, is in very good condition and I feel is very rare. The two book plates owners (names on them) attached to the interior of the front board are both on Google and were known book collectors. The Artistic book plate has been sold by itself. There is a lot of information about both of these people if you would like to research them. I feel I should have this examined by a professional, but thought I would try to see what the book collectors out there may know or want. SCHONHEINTZ, Jacob. Apologia Astrologie.

ISOCRATE.
(à la fin:) Bononiae, Benedictus Hectoris, 1502. in-4. 11ff. (1f.blanc). Demi-vélin à coins postérieur. Edition Originale très rare, imprimée à Bologne, de la traduction latine par l'humaniste italien Filippo Beroaldo le Jeune (1472-1518), de ce texte attribué à Isocrate et connu sous le nom de la "Lettre à Demonicos". Ce recueil de conseils destinés à un jeune étudiant constitua notamment l'un des fondements de l'enseignement humaniste de la civilité et du savoir-vivre. "Aux côtés de Cicéron et de Sénèque, il faut mentionner d'autres grands anciens, lus eux aussi avec ferveur par les humanistes: Isocrate, Quintilien et surtout Plutarque offrent en effet des textes fondateurs pour la civilité classique. D'Isocrate il faut surtout retenir le discours A Demonicos, qui se présente comme une série de préceptes pour la conduite de la vie que le vieil orateur adresse au fils d'un ami. Il est édité de façon isolée dès le début du XVIe siècle, et très souvent associé au discours A Nicoclès, qui concerne les devoirs du Prince" (Montandon). Neveu du célèbre humaniste Filippo Beroaldo l'Ancien (1453-1505), dont il fut l'un des meilleurs élèves et qui était natif comme lui de Bologne, Filippo Beroaldo le Jeune devint président de l'Académie de Rome en 1514 et bibliothécaire du Vatican en 1516. Le présent ouvrage fut sa première publication; elle est d'une grande rareté. Bon exemplaire, bien complet du dernier feuillet blanc. Manque à Brunet. Graesse, III, p.436. Cf.

Gold page edges with dry debossed decoration. The text set in elegant Aldine italic characters. Genuine example with wide margins. Complete volume in excellent condition. An extremely rare and exceptional volume: this is the first Aldine edition of Dante and the first edition of Dante produced in pocket format (the previous ones were all in folio). The publication, edited by Pietro Bembo, served as a basis for all subsequent editions. This work is of the greatest philological importance, and is very much sought after by bibliophiles: it is in this volume that the famous typographic logo of Aldus Manutius an anchor and dolphin printed on the verso of the last sheet appears for the first time. It is one of the most famous typographic logos in history, and was finalised precisely during the printing of this volume. It is therefore one of the most important books in the history of Italian literature and publishing. Graesse, Trésor de livres rares et précieux, t.

SCHONHEINTZ, Jacob
One large woodcut diagram in the text. 24 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern boards. Nuremberg: G. Schenck, 21 September 1502. First edition; this is the first of only two books known to have been printed by Georg Schenck and the author's only book. "In 1502 there was printed at Nürnberg a defense of astrology by Jakob Schonheintz, a doctor of arts and medicine and a Franconian. He signs his preface at Würzburg. The immediate occasion of this defense was 'the impudence of a certain man who wishes himself to be considered a theologian, although he is anything else than one, who had attacked astrology and its professors. Pity for the unlearned who may take his attack seriously has moved Schonheintz to reply. He furthermore regards this preliminary skirmish as a preparation for a future encounter, 'not with a cursed scribbler, but with the most learned and most eloquent Giovanni Pico Mirandola, most generous count of Concordia.' Schonheintz proceeds to say that no one has attacked astrology more bravely, no one more learnedly, no one with greater force and contention than Pico has."-Thorndike, IV, pp. 542-43. This book was much read and quoted in the early 16th century. Fine copy. ? Zinner 818. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[Taylor, John].
Philadelphia: Morgan & Yeager, [1821–24]. 16mo (17 cm, 6.75"). [12] pp; 12 plts., illus. The online catalogue at the American Antiquarian Society writes of this work: "An adaptation for children of the comic narrative poem Monsieur Tonson, by John Taylor (1757-1832). For his authorship see the Dictionary of national biography." It also notes that "Morgan and Yeager published together from 1815 to 1824" and that the work was "probably issued after 1820." Another observation is that the hand-colored plates "might be by William Charles, who worked with Joseph Yeager" but that the title is "not listed in Harry B. Weiss' William Charles: Early caricaturist, engraver and publisher of children's books (1932)."    The title-page (i.e., the front wrapper) informs that the publication price was "25 cents plain, 37 1/2 coloured." The text and illustrations are mostly printed only on one side of a leaf.    Provenance: 19th-century signature of Richard H.

HERODOTUS.
Adams H-394; Ahmanson-Murphy 62 & 62a; Dibdin II, p. 19; PMM 41. Splendid copy of the famous first edition of the original Greek text of the works of Herodotus (ca. 484 BC- ca. 425 BC), "the father of history," published and edited by Aldus Manutius at Venice on the basis of many manuscripts. By promoting Herodotus as a key to ancient history and society and providing a reliable text, it set the stage for his popularity in the 16th century. It covers the growth of the Persian Empire, the history of Egypt, Persian incursions into Greece, the defeat of the Persians in 490 BC, the Persian king Xerxes's attempt to avenge the Persian defeat and their defeat once again in 479 BC. But perhaps of greatest interest are the strange and fantastic tales and anecdotes, including the circumnavigation of Africa."Herodotus is the earliest historian; his predecessors were by contrast chroniclers. He was the first to collect his materials systematically, to test their accuracy as far as he could, and to arrange his story so as to appeal to, as well as inform, his readers. . Certainly for the Persian war his authority forms the basis of all modern histories; and, more than that, it is the stuff of legends. Herodotus is far more than a valuable source: always readable, his work has been quoted and translated ever since" (PMM).With extensive records of provenance. In fine condition and with generous margins, with only some light stains on the first page and last page, and a couple tiny marginal worm holes in the last 4 leaves (in the margins except for 1 in the last leaf). Magnificent copy of a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Herodotus; Edited by Aldus Manutius
Aldus Manutius September, 1502, Venice. Rare first edition of Herodotus' history of the Persian Wars, one of the most important texts edited by the great scholar-printer-publisher. Folio, bound in contemporary vellum, woodcut title in Greek and Roman letter, verso with dedication in Latin, text in Greek letter throughout with spaces for capital letters, woodcut device on title and last page. Aldus claims in the dedication that he corrected the text from multiple exemplars, one of the few instances where such a claim by him is justified and can be verified. He was the first to have access to the 'Florentine' codices, where Valla had used the so-called Roman family of manuscripts for his translation. The printer's copy was discovered in Nuremberg by Brigitte Mondrain in 1993 (Scriptorium 49 [1995], pp. 263-273). The History was designed to match the Aldine Thucydides of four months earlier: they share a paper stock, all types and the number of lines per page. Ahmanson-Murphy 50; Isaac 12782; Laurenziana 64; Renouard, Alde 35:8; Sansoviniana 67. In excellent condition with light rubbing and wear, bookplates to the pastedown, some light toning to the text, occasional Greek and Latin annotations in a c.17th-century hand, small repairs to the final four leaves. An exceptional example of this landmark work, rare and desirable in contemporary vellum. Herodotus is generally considered 'the father of history'. Departing from the Homeric chronicle, '[h]e was the first to collect his materials systematically, to test their accuracy as far as he could, and arrange his story in such a wa … [Click Below for Full Description]

2 ouvrages en 1 petit in-12. 1). XXIIIIff. chiffrés. + 31ff. (il manque peut-être un feuillet blanc à la fin). + 17pp. non chiffrées + 6ff. + 19pp. non chiffrées + 8ff. + 8ff. + 11ff. (1f.blanc). 2). 8ff. Plein maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs orné, double filet d'encadrement et roulette dorés sur les plats avec des fleurons aux angles, tranches dorées (reliure du début du 18e siècle). 1). Précieux recueil d'opuscules juridiques, imprimés en caractères gothiques à Cologne dans les premières années du 16e siècle et réunis sous un même titre à la faveur du projet éditorial désigné par Stintzing sous le nom de "Kölner Sammelwerke" ("le recueil de Cologne"). Ce projet, peut-être unique en son genre, avait mobilisé plusieurs imprimeurs et libraires de la ville pour produire et assembler différents opuscules de droit très prisés des étudiants et des juristes. Publiés aussi bien séparément que sous la forme de recueils plus ou moins complets, ces opuscules ne portaient ni date ni adresse d'impression, et ils présentaient la particularité extraordinaire de paraître issus de la même imprimerie et de ne constituer qu'un seul et même volume, quand en réalité leur élaboration et leur réunion sous forme de recueil était le fruit d'une collaboration complexe entre plusieurs imprimeurs et libraires. Le typographe Cornelius von Zierickzee est le seul dont le nom apparaisse fugacement dans l'une des variantes du recueil, mais parmi les imprimeurs ayant vraisemblablement participé au projet figurent Heinrich Quentell et ses héritiers, Martin von Werden, Johann von Landen et Hermann von Bongart.
