DANTE ALIGHIERI
- Alde, Venise 1502, petit in-8 (9,5x15,5cm), a-z8 A-G8 H4 (soit 244f.), relié. - Prima edizione aldina de La Divina Commedia e prima edizione di Dante in piccolo formato. Stampa in corsivo (30 righe per pagina). Questa edizione è la prima ad indossare il famoso anchor aldine su un piccolo formato. Sul retro del frontespizio: "Lo'nferno el Purgatorio e Paradiso di Dante Alaghieri", colophon: "VENETIIS IN AEDIB. ALDI ACCVRATISSIME. MEN. AVG. M.DII ". La Fondazione Barbier-Mueller per lo studio della poesia del Rinascimento italiano chiarisce che non ci sono stati due problemi, ma diversi stati di alcuni volantini. Pertanto, alcune copie si distinguono per il marchio della stampante sul retro dell'ultimo foglio; questo marchio era davvero pronto durante la stampa. 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. Pernetti (XVII secolo) in vitello marrone screziato, torna con cinque nervi decorati con scatole e florets dorate, tutti i bordi rossi. Schiena, punte e angoli abilmente restaurati.

DANTE ALIGHIERI
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. A very light, non-gravelly wetness in the low margin of the leaves at ii , a iii and a iiii .Handwritten ex-libris surmounting a flourish on the title page: "Amando the virtuous presto is spread out and not the ama presto if disimpara".

SCHONHEINTZ, Jacob
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. Montandon, "Pour une histoire des traités de savoir-vivre en Europe" (1994), p.194. [Attributes: First Edition]

Dante Alighieri
Venetiis in Aedib[us] Aldi. Accuratissime men. Aug, 1502. Octavo volume, cc. [244]. Hardbound in full contemporary parchment, with visible tabs. The spine with three raised bands. 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. Downing on verso of frontispice; most recently in the children's book collection of Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.    WorldCat locates only three U.S. libraries reporting ownership (Yale, Free Library of Philadelphia, AAS).         Shoemaker 2310; not in Welch; not in Rosenbach, Children's. Buff printed paper covers; text block recased. Wrappers and text age-soiled and with stains; still, a (now) solid and appealing period piece.

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).

Herodotus; Edited by Aldus Manutius
Venice: Aldus Manutius, September, 1502. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

ALIGHIERI, Dante (1265-1321)
Venice, Aldus Manutius. In 8vo (mm. 158x95); pergamena rigida coeva o di poco posteriore, dorso a tre nervi, tagli dorati e goffrati (taglio superiore un po' iscurito); cc. [244]. Segnatura: a-z8 A-G8 H4 . La carta l2 è bianca. Marca tipografica al verso dell'ultimo foglio. Carattere corsivo. Ottima copia marginosa. Questa PRIMA EDIZIONE ALDINA della Commedia vanta numerosi primati. Oltre ad essere la prima edizione cinquecentesca e la prima edizione tascabile del capolavoro dantesco, in essa appare per la prima volta la celebre marca tipografica di Aldo Manuzio dell'ancora con delfino. Il curatore Pietro Bembo trascrisse il testo (oggi Ms. Vat. lat. 3197), servendosi come base dell'esemplare (oggi Ms. Vat. lat. 3199) della Commedia che il Boccaccio aveva mandato in dono al Petrarca, fra l'estate del 1351 e il maggio del 1353, e che aveva avuto come ultimo proprietario e postillatore Bernardo Bembo. Voltando le spalle alla tradizione rappresentata dalle monumentale edizione con commento di Cristoforo Landino (Firenze, Niccolò di Lorenzo, 1481), il Bembo fissò una nuova vulgata del poema dantesco, tanto che l'aldina del 1502 divenne il testo di riferimento di tutte le altre stampe cinquecentesche fino all'edizione della Crusca del 1595. "The poetry of the Comedy emerged from beneath a sea of exegetical commentary for the first time in more than twenty years in this edition produced by the most celebrated printer and publisher of Renaissance Italy, Aldus Manutius. The text differed radically from the Landino vulgate which had established itself during the last decades of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAPTISTA MANTUANUS, GIOVANNI
Argentinae [Strassburg]: Johann Schott, 1502, 1501, 1500. This sammelband combines two works by humanist poet and Carmelite reformer Baptista Mantuanus with a treatise on Roman law, in a binding by an Esslingen binder who flourished between 1480 and 1524. Baptista Spagnuoli of Mantua (1447-1516) was one of the most prolific poets of the Renaissance and someone whose verse became enormously popular and influential in the early modern period, particularly after his eclogues were translated into English. Shakespeare referenced some of his poetry in "Love's Labour's Lost," and both Milton and Spenser also found inspiration in his work. The first work here, on various calamities of classical and contemporary times, was quite popular in the 16th century; it includes an attack on papal corruption that Luther included in his "Against the Roman Papacy." The second work, containing verses in praise of the Virgin Mary and Saint Catherine of Alexandria, introduced a form of epic poetry on religious subjects that would influence writers from Sannazaro to Milton, and led Erasmus to dub the Mantuan a "Christian Virgil." The final work in our volume is an influential manual on Roman law dating from the 12th century known as the "Exceptiones Petri." The binding here is from an Esslingen workshop dubbed by Kyriss "Kinder spielend" ["Children playing"] for the stamp which appears on the lower cover. Kyriss examined 61 volumes from German libraries in Esslingen, Stuttgart, Tubingen, and other cities that may be traced to this atelier. More than 90 percent of the bindings are on white pigskin, … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

NICOLAS DE LYRE, or HENRICUS DE FRIMARIA.
retro fratres Minores Anno dominice geniture, 1502. The printer's name is not mentioned, but it is likely the work of Martin von Werden. The Retro Minores press operated from 31 July 1497 to 1504. Proctor attributed the work of this press to Martin Von Werden. BMC, however, suggests that, as the Retro Minores used three of Heinrich Quentell's types and 2 of the same woodcuts, it might have been a branch of Quentell's business. However, following the custom of the time, Quentell and Zel each gave the location of their shop as retro fratres, behind the friars, and identified themselves as the printer. Books printed by von Werden between 1498 and 1506 do not bear his name. However, they do indicate they were produced at the same location as that used by Quentell and Zel, or, as is the case with this book, retro fratres Minores, behind the friars minor. After 1506, von Werden indicated both the location and his name. Von Werden used the same typed as Quentell and Zel, and reprinted woodcuts which originally appeared in their books. The book has been attributed to Nicolas of Lyra (1270-1349). In modern times it has been assigned it to Henry of Friemar, circa 1245-1340 (Cf. Buchberger. Lexicon f. Theol. u. Kirche. 2nd ed.). Nicolas of Lyra had the greater reputation and is known as one of the great Biblical exegetes. He emphasized the literal meaning of scripture and his work was a strong influence on Luther. Nicholas was a Franciscan.Henry of Friemar belonged to the same order as Luther, the Order of Hermits of St. Augustine. He was master in theology at the Univ. o … [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 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

MARTIALIS, Marcus Valerius
n.d. 8vo, ff. 192. Roman and Italic letter, blank spaces with guide letters for initials. Light age yellowing, title and rest a little ink soiled, small marginal worm trail to first three and last four leaves. A good, crisp copy in elegant C19 polished calf, spine gilt stamped, a. e. g.; joints rubbed; Syston Park and Graf L. B. D. Pahlen armorial bookplates on pastedown, later label to verso of e. p. A first rare counterfeit of the 1501 Aldine edition, without the Greek passages and the colophon, at end, printed in Lyon. The typographical innovation of Aldo’s octavo editions of Latin and Greek classics and Italian poetry was immediately and widely imitated in Italy and beyond.  Marcus Valerius Martialis (between 38 and 41 – between 102 and 104 AD) is considered the father of the modern epigram. Knowledge of his origins and early life are derived from his works. Originally from Bilbilis, a Roman colony in Spain, he moved to Rome in 64 and lived here for 34 years. His life in the capital was always overwhelmed by financial difficulties and concerned with the search for patrons. Nevertheless, he managed to own a home in the city, on the Quirinal Hill, and one in the countryside. He wrote a total of 1561 epigrams, most in Elegiac distiches, then in hendecasyllables and iambic metres, which were published during the reigns of Domitian, Nerva and Trajan. In this poems he satirised city life and the scandalous activities of his acquaintances. Books 1-12, published between 85 and 102, embrace a large range of topics: jokes among friends, birth or marriage parties, re-enactments of … [Click Below for Full Description]

MATHEOLUS (chierico)
1502. Manoscritto di fine '700, vergato in lingua francese (142X98 mm.), di pp. (16), con molte bianche in fine. Primo capolettera miniato in rosso e nero, capoversi rubricati in nero con stile imitativo di caratteri incunaboli. Carattere corsivo di piccolo modulo. Raffinata legatura in pieno marocchino rosso foncé, piatti incorniciati da filetti e ricco merletto in oro, dorso a 4 nervi con scomparti decorati in oro ai piccoli ferri, titolo inciso in oro in senso longitudinale, tagli in oro. Ottimo esemplare. L'impianto di questi versi proviene dai "Lamenta", esametri spesso ricordati per la loro estrema virulenza misoginica scritti dal chierico trecentesco bolognese Matheolus (detto "il bigamo"), che oggi sono conservati in un unico testimone latino presso la Biblioteca Universitaria di Utrecht. Questi suoi versi vennero in seguito voltati in francese da Jean Le Fèvre de Resson, il quale vi inserì un suo lavoro, "Le Livre de Leesca" (traducibile gorsso modo come "Il Libro delle gioie femminili"). Di lì in poi le le opere del Matheolus e le interpolazioni del suo non fedelissimo traduttore Le Fèvre sopravvissero come unica lezione. In stampa, con sensibili cambiamenti, abbiamo traccia di questi versi nei "Notables dictes des philosophes à l'obprobe des femmes vicieuses et à l'honneur des bonnes", opuscoletto impresso a Lyon da Balsarin nel 1502. Una recente edizione critica dei Lamenta è stata fatta da Tiziano Pacchiarotti ("Le Lamentations de Matheolus /Jean Le Fèvre de Resson", Alessandria, 2010). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
