[Aesop's fables].
1502. Milan. Lazaro de Turate. 4to, (197 x 142 mm). 66 (of 68) ff., lacking d2 & d6. Nineteenth century half brown calf, spine flat tooled and lettered in gilt, just lightly rubbed. Probably contemporary drawing on f.aiii, a fine copy, overall clean and fresh.- Very rare, early and wonderfully illustrated edition of the fables of Aesop, one of the most influential literary works in history: "'Moralized', illustrated, quoted, copied, parodied and reprinted, they have been diffused over the whole western world and -who knows?- some of the oriental 'originals' may themselves be copied from still earlier lost Greek sources. Innumerable imitators, from La Fontaine to Thurber, have given new life to the form." (PMM, for the first edition of 1485). The illustration is comprised of a woodcut pictorial title page and 64 half page woodcut illustrations in text; the woodcuts seem to be taken from the 1498 Milan edition. OCLC locates two copies of this edition, both at the British Library. Provenance: Walter Ashburner Florence, his stamps on a couple leaves.

THUCYDIDES.
Venice: Aldus Manutius, May 1502. Folio (290 x 198 mm). Eighteenth-century red morocco, gilt border on covers, spine with gilt decorations and title, comb-marbled endpapers, red sprinkled edges. Housed in a red quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Extremities lightly rubbed, few marks to rear cover, a little light soiling and staining internally, but generally very good, with a few marginal annotations in Greek, 18th-century engraved bookplate of an English collector, Michael Smith, to the front pastedown. 122 leaves, without blank A8 and terminal blank P4. Text in Greek and Latin. Large red initials in first chapters. Editio princeps of the most important work in Greek historiography, edited by Aldus from a Cretan manuscript. As with his edition of Herodotus, the text had first appeared in print in the Latin translation of Lorenzo Valla. The recipient of Aldus's dedicatory letter, Daniele Renier, was a Venetian senator, procurator of San Marco and collector of Hebrew, oriental and classical manuscripts. The printer mentions how Renier frequently comes to his shop to see what Greek or Latin text might be under production. "The standards and methods of Thucydides as a contemporary historian have never been bettered He uses [reported speeches] to make clear, what would have been intolerably dry in the extract, the personal and political motives of the protagonists on either side Thucydides has been valued as he hoped: statesmen as well as historians, men of affairs as well as scholars, have read and profited by him" (PMM).

MELA, Pomponius.
De situ orbis Hermolai Barbari fideliter emendatus. [Venice], (colophon: printed by Albertino da Vercelli, 14 May 1502). Small 4to (20.5 x 15.5 cm). With printed guide letters left for manuscript initials (not filled in). Gold-tooled red half sheepskin (ca. 1820?). XXIIII ll. Rare 1502 edition, the third in the best and most important early recension of Pomponius Mela's description of the world, written ca. AD 43, the earliest surviving geographical work in Latin and one of Pliny's most important sources, perhaps the most important for geography. Pomponius describes Europe, Africa and Asia, the three together surrounded by the ocean. He was at born in southern Spain (we don't know where he wrote) and shows a more detailed and more accurate knowledge of Spain, France and the British Isles than earlier writers (giving us our first known reference to the Orkney Islands) and even knows of the existence of Scandinavia. But he also devotes book I, chapter VI to "Arabia", which includes not only the Arabian peninsula but also "Syria" (which includes what is now Iraq) and other parts of the Middle East, and his description of India in book III, chapter IV, gives further information about what seem to be the Arabian and Iranian coasts of the Gulf, Egypt, Iraq, the island of Masirah and the cities of Aden and Harran.With a few early manuscript notes and the armorial bookplate of the Bibliotheca Giustiniani, showing the (1773?) arms of the Padua branch of the family, but perhaps nevertheless referring to the library of the Venetian palace acquired in 1590 by the Genoese Giuseppe Giust … [Click Below for Full Description]

Illuminat latebras sic medicina tuas.Lumen apothecariorum cum no[n]nullis expositionibus noviter impressum.(Colophon:) Venice, Albertino da Lissona (Vercellensis), [ca. 1502/03 or ca. 1505]. 2 works in 1 edition. Folio (28.5 x 20 cm). With 4 woodcut decorated initials. 19th-century limp sheepskin parchment. [1], "94" [= 95], [4] ll., lacking leaf "80" [= 79]. Rare early post-incunable edition of two important treatises on pharmacology and medical botany, apparently the first edition to combine the two and the first edited by Hieronymus Surianus (fl. 1458?, d. 1522?). The first work, Luminare maius by Giovanni Giacomo Manlio di Bosco (fl. 1490-post 1500), is a commentary on ancient Arabic and Greek pharmacological works, especially the Arabic treatises of Yuhanna Ibn Masawayh (ca. 777-857), a Nestorian Christian physician from Assyria who was the personal physician to four caliphs. It gives instructions for preparing numerous medicines, indicating the quantities of the ingredients and describing each ingredient. The second work, Lumen apothecariorum by Quirico de Augustis de Tortona of Milan (fl. 1486-1497), complements it with descriptions of hundreds of medicinal preparations, including many oils and syrups. Little is known about either Manlio or Augustis. Surianus edited their treatises and prepared the first two editions of the two together for Lissona/Vercellensis in Venice.With an early manuscript note and shelf-mark on the title-page and a few early manuscript paragraph marks in the margins.

HERODOTUS.
[Historiarum] libri novem. Quibus musarum indita sunt nomina.(Colophon: Venice), Aldus Manutius, (colophon: September 1502). Folio (29.5 x 20 cm). With Aldus's anchor and dolphin device on title-page and the verso of the last leaf. Late 19th-century blind-tooled, polished tan calf, the central panel with the arms of the Dukes of Arenberg. [140] ll. 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 ev … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eiusdemq[ue] liber De mirabilibus mundi: & etiam de quibusdam effectibus causatis a quibusdam animalibus &c.(Colophon: Venice, Johan Baptist Sessa, 12 February 1502). Small 4to (21 x 15.5 cm). With a large woodcut portrait of the author at his desk. Gold-tooled maroon morocco (ca. 1870/90?) for James Carnegie, 9th Earl of Southesk (1827-1905), gilt edges. 16 ll. Rare early edition (one of perhaps four or five early editions with the main text set in a roman type) of two works written ca. 1300 by an unidentified follower of Albertus Magnus concerning the extraordinary properties (magical, astrological, medicinal, etc.) of 16 plants, 45 minerals or gems and 18 animals (including many birds), and concerning the "wonders of the world". The first includes means to become invisible, feel no pain, arouse love, interpret dreams and make prophesies. The second includes mental manipulation of matter, cures for diseases, magic made with fire or light, means of breaking charms, and seeing the future in dreams. The woodcut is remarkable for its depiction of both numerous books with bosses, clasps, etc., and numerous accoutrements, such as a wedge-shaped book stand, a copy stand in the form of a four-sided pyramid on a pedestal, pens, ink wells and penknives. Senna used it again in 1504 on the title-page of John Pecham's Perspectiva communis. Though this edition, like many others, attributes the works to Albertus Magnus (ca. 1194?-1280) on the title-page and at the end of the texts, the attribution is believed to be spur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schoenheintz, Jakob
Nuremberg: Georg Schenk, 1502. In Defense of Astrology: The Only Known Work by a Nuremberg Physician and IatromathematicianAmong Pico della Mirandola's literary remains was a long, disorganized, and unwieldy--not to mention unfinished--condemnation of astrology as a science.1 Pico's work, the Disputationes contra astrologos, was edited, finished, and titled by his nephew, Gianfrancesco,2 and appeared in print in 1495, a year following Pico's death. The present work, the Nuremberger Jakob Schoenheintz's Apologia astrologiae, is both an admiring encomium to the great Pico's intellect, as well as a vigorous defense of the practices and pedigree of astrology and the sublunary observation of the skies for judicial, divine, astronomical, and medical purposes. Schoenheintz, an early iatromathematician (student of the theory that the health of the human body is governed by mathematical principles), draws upon references ancient, medieval, and contemporary in his argument that astrology is not only an essential science, but a relevant humanistic endeavor. The Apologia, Schoenheintz's only known work (and the publisher Georg Schenk's second and last publication), is a succint and well-reasoned defense of astrologic science, which was much read and studied in the early part of the 16th century, and remains the cardinal witness to Schoenheintz.3 A good exemplar, illustrated by a woodcut of the transit of Jupiter in the zodiacal regions of Libra and Aries. Uncommon in North American scientific libraries.Quarto, 185 x 143 x 6 mm (binding); 183 x 142 x 4 mm (binding). a-c4; 24 ff. Bound i … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALIGHIERI, Dante.
Venice, in aedibus Aldi August 1502. Octavo (159 x 90 mm.), 244 unnumbered leaves with the blank leaf at the end of the Inferno, Aldus device on verso of last leaf. Title page reinforced in the gutter and with a stamp of a private collection, edges of the first quire lightly frayed, a few spots and contemporary marginal annotations; a good copy in early XIX century stiff vellum calf, spine in compartments with double lettering pieces.A good copy of the celebrated first Aldine edition of Dante by Pietro Bembo. This is the first and only time that Dante's Commedia was given the title Le terze rime, a decision of the editor.Pietro Bembo (1470-1547) was a young Venetian patrician and humanist who, thanks to his classical education and his scholarly interests, was closely involved as from the late 15th century with the Aldine Press. In July 1501 and August 1502, he edited for Aldus the first Petrarch and the first Dante to appear in the 16th century; these two pivotal editions appeared in the famous pocket-format series of Latin and vernacular texts Aldus launched in April 1501, after some years spent in printing Greek and Latin works. "The series set out to be radically and provocatively innovative. It used a completely new typeface, the first ever Italic. The format was octavo, unheard of for printed texts of this kind. It accorded to Petrarch and Dante the same status as Latin classics such as Virgil and Horace, and it presented the work of all of these authors uncluttered by commentaries and other extraneous matter for the first time in some twenty to twenty-five years.

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.

MELA, Pomponius.
Rare 1502 edition, the third in the best and most important early recension of Pomponius Mela's description of the world, written ca. AD 43, the earliest surviving geographical work in Latin and one of Pliny's most important sources, perhaps the most important for geography. Pomponius describes Europe, Africa and Asia, the three together surrounded by the ocean. He was at born in southern Spain (we don't know where he wrote) and shows a more detailed and more accurate knowledge of Spain, France and the British Isles than earlier writers (giving us our first known reference to the Orkney Islands) and even knows of the existence of Scandinavia. But he also devotes book I, chapter VI to "Arabia", which includes not only the Arabian peninsula but also "Syria" (which includes what is now Iraq) and other parts of the Middle East, and his description of India in book III, chapter IV, gives further information about what seem to be the Arabian and Iranian coasts of the Gulf, Egypt, Iraq, the island of Masirah and the cities of Aden and Harran.With a few early manuscript notes and the armorial bookplate of the Bibliotheca Giustiniani, showing the (1773?) arms of the Padua branch of the family, but perhaps nevertheless referring to the library of the Venetian palace acquired in 1590 by the Genoese Giuseppe Giustiniani, which dispersed some of its treasures in the late 19th century. With a small worm hole in the lower gutter margin of the first 6 leaves, a defect in the paper in the lower outside corner of the first leaf, sewing holes from an earlier binding visible in the gutter of 2 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

LUCAIN
(In fine) Venetiis apud Aldum mense aprili 1502 In-8 (90 X 155 mm) de 150 pages non chiffrées - (1 ff) - (sig. a-r8 et s 3, 8°), maroquin brun ancien, dos à nerfs muet. (Reliure début XVIIIe. Petites traces discrètes sur les plats, mouillure claire et quelques minimes rousseurs aux huit premiers feuillets). Première édition Aldine du poème épique du poète latin Lucain (39 - 65), né à Cordoue (aujourd'hui Andalousie, Espagne), consacré à la guerre civile opposant Pompée à Jules César. La Pharsale est un poème en dix livres, resté inachevé. Le récit donnant le détail exact des événements, peut également être considéré comme un ouvrage historique et Tite-Live notamment s'en inspira. 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

Première édition illustrée des oeuvres de Virgile. Sortie des presses de Johannes Grüninger, dont la marque typographique se trouve à la fin du volume, cette somptueuse édition est l'un des chefs-d'oeuvre de l'imprimerie strasbourgeoise à la Renaissance. 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. L'impression du texte a été réalisée en caractères romains, avec le texte de Virgile présenté au centre des pages et les nombreux commentaires disposés autour de celui-ci en plus petits caractères.

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). Online catalogue of Notre Dame, Newberry Library, and Univ. of Chicago collaborative exhibition. RENOUARD 34:5. GOLDSMID 43. ADAMS D82-3. BMC (ITALIAN), P. 209. BRUNET II:500.

Mandeville, Sir John
Wonderful illustrated Italian edition of Sir John Mandeville s Itinerarium. June, 1502. Milan. 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. A bestseller in manuscript and print, Mandeville s Book reflects far more than med … [Click Below for Full Description]
