Prima edizione aldina e prima delle edizioni di Dante impressa in formato tascabile. La lezione, curata da Pietro Bembo, servì di base a tutte le edizioni successive. La presente edizione è di insigne importanza filologica, assai rara ed ambita dai bibliofili: qui appare per la prima volta la celebre impresa tipografica di Aldo Manuzio dell' ancora con delfino al verso dell' ultimo foglio; la più celebre delle marche tipografiche della storia, che venne ultimata durante la stampa del volume. Bellissimo esemplare, abilmente rinfrescato all'epoca della rilegatura, con tre antiche provenienze nobiliari non ancora identificate, una con timbro e due manoscritte, sulla sguardia anteriore, sul primo e sul secondo foglio. In questo esemplare, di pregio particolare, la pagina iniziale di ognuno dei 33 canti dell'Inferno ha nel margine inf. un dotto riassunto manoscritto all'epoca su tre o più righe, vergato in  minuto raffinatissimo carattere, in una lingua italo-spagnola??? .

Lucanus, Marcus Annaeus [Lucan].
Venetiis: Apud Aldum 8vo (16.4 cm, 6.5"). [140] ff.. 1502 First Aldine edition of Lucan's Pharsalia, the greatest epic poem in Latin after the Aeneid, on the subject of the civil war between Pompey and Caesar. Born in Córdoba, Spain, Lucan (A.D. 39–65) was the grandson of the elder Seneca, nephew of the younger Seneca, and the brother of the Gallio mentioned in Acts 18. He published the Pharsalia in A.D. 62 or 63, but it seems likely that his poetic talent aroused the jealously of the vain Nero, as after its publication the emperor forbade him to write or even plead in the courts, and then later compelled him to commit suicide for alleged treason. The editio princeps of Lucan was printed in Rome by Sweynheym and Pannartz in 1469. This edition is based on the text of the Venice 1493 edition and improved upon by Aldus after an old manuscript given to him by Marco Antonio Mauroceno, who contributed the prefatory note. The short life of Lucan appended at the end is drawn from Tacitus. This is a => nice and early Aldine with spacious margins, printed in the famous Aldine italic with guide letters and space left for initials (unaccomplished). The famous anchor and dolphin device is not found here for it did not make its first appearance until late in 1502, when one issue of Dante's Terze rime introduced the image to the world presses — this dates to the earlier part of that year. A second Aldine edition was issued in 1515.

Aldus, Venice, 1502. BOOK HISTORY À LA GRECQUE EDITIO PRINCEPS, Folio, 124 unnumbered ll. AA8, AA-?O8 OP8. Greek letter, undecorated, guide letters, spaces blank. Contemporary 4-line Latin inscription signed "S.P" on pastedown, "15ff" (probably original price) in margin of t.p. and small inked symbols in title, a few tiny wormholes in early and final ll. Ink stain to extreme upper edge of early gatherings, very light waterstain to upper blank margin of a few final ll. A very good clean copy, well margined, on extra thick quality paper, in striking contemporary calf over boards originally a la Grecque, covers with triple ruled outer borders, inner ropework with fine roundels gilt at each corner and centre, surrounding panel of richly decorated blind lattice work with gilt roundel at each corner, double and triple ruled panels within enclosing panel with roof vault border, gilt roundel in each vault space and in the middle, two ropework wheels surrounding ropework multiple knots; spine, joints, and all corners worn, covers with some surface abrasions, head and tail of spine shaved to stand upright. A handsome and historic quality binding, probably Venetian. Editio princeps of the first and still most famous work in the Western historical tradition. Thucydides has been described as the father of ‘scientific history’ because of his strict standards of evidence gathering and analysis of events in terms of cause and effect. He has also been called the father of the school of political realism viewing relations between states as based more on might than right. His text is still st … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAMPANUS, Johannes Antonius
Andrea Torresano, Venice, 1502. Folio. ff. 118 [vi] 84 [2] 58 [iv] 26 [i]. Roman letter; some light marginal spotting, slight marginal water-staining to one or two quires, not affecting text. A very good, clean, well-margined copy in C16 vellum over boards. Second edition of the collected works of Johannes Antonius Campanus (Giovanni Antonio Campano; c. 1429-1477). Campanus, churchman, humanist and orator, led a varied career which took him to appointments in Naples and Perugia (as a teacher of rhetoric), before his election as Bishop of Crotone in 1463. From 1472-74 he was Papal Governor of Todi. A prominent figure of the day, Campanus was the subject of a Latin epitaph by Poliziano. The present edition reproduces the introduction by Michael Fernus from the first, Roman edition of 1495. The essays in the present volume demonstrate Campanus' rhetorical and theological expertise to the full, and are comprehensively indexed. They include orations on the Holy Spirit and St. Stephan; we are not told the occasions on which these were delivered - if, indeed, they were anything more than exercises in composition. Other instructive essays include 'De dignitate martrimonii' and 'Contra Turchos ad principes germanos'; biographies of Thomas Aquinas, Pope Pius and Archbishop John of Benevento also appear. The present volume is, however, dominated by a lengthier biographic work, Campanus' six book life of the famous condottiere Andrea Braccio Fortebracci, conte di Montone (1368-1424), who was fatally wounded by his fellow soldier of fortune Francesco Sforza near L'Aquila, northeast of R … [Click Below for Full Description]

THUCYDIDES
Venice: Aldus Manutius, May, 1502. Folio (290 x 198 mm), 122 leaves, without blank A8 and terminal blank P4. 18th-century red morocco, gilt border on covers, spine with gilt decorations and title, comb-marbled endpapers, red sprinkled edges. Text in Greek and Latin. Large red initials in first chapters. 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. 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).

Calepino, an Augustinian monk, “devoted some thirty years to composing his dictionary, which focused on classical Latin usage and on encyclopedic information and literary examples from ancient culture. In the years after his death many, mostly anonymous editors made modifications, corrections, and especially additions, often borrowing from other dictionaries . . . In the early modern period the Calepino not only became the most widely recognized brand of dictionary, still active in the early twentieth century, but it also came to stand for the entire dictionary genre . . .

SOPHOCLES
Venice: Aldus Manutius, August, 1502. Editio princeps of the seven surviving complete plays of Sophocles, the greatest of the Greek tragedians. This volume contains the first printing of Oedipus Rex, generally considered the greatest Greek tragedy. This edition served as the fundamental text for more than three hundred years. Sophocles (497-406 BC) was not only a playwright, but also a leading citizen of Athens during the greatest period of its history. This period brought the military supremacy of Athens after the defeat of Persia in 478 as well as the building of the Parthenon, the great Temple of Athena, and the stone theater of Dionysus. Sophocles was a general with Pericles during the revolt of Samosin in 441, a state supervisor of tribute from the Athenian empire, and finally one of the ten (probouloi) commissioners over the Council of Five Hundred of the oligarchy after the coup of 411. Sophocles wrote more than 120 plays; those in this volume probably owe their survival to their selection for use as an educational textbook. These seven plays contain some of the most powerful and timeless dramas ever written, including Oedipus Rex, a work in which “the poet attains the supreme height of dramatic concentration and tragic intensity” (Lewis Campbell). This play, Oedipus Rex, part of the Theban trilogy, is generally considered the greatest of the Greek tragedies. A LANDMARK IN THE HISTORY OF PRINTING. This book, printed in Venice by Aldus Manutius, is the first Greek book issued in the Aldine portable format and the first classical text printed in the smallest and finest … [Click Below for Full Description]

Istanbul, 908 AH [1502/03 AD].. 8vo (18 x 13 cm). 78 ff., naskh script with features of ta'liq, in several different hands. Half-leather Oriental binding with a flap and pasted boards.. A collective volume with texts in Arabic on Arabic manuscript paper (for ff. 43-45 and from f. 73 onwards European paper is used). It was copied by Ahmad b. 'Uthman al-Arzan al-Rumi in the city of Qustantiniyya (Istanbul) in one of the eight madrasas (colophon in a later hand on f. 78a). - 1) ff. 1v-13v. Fragment without beginning or end, and possibly misbound, of a gloss on logic (Qala-aqulu structure). Possibly this is the commentary by Qutb al-Din al-Razi al-Tahtani (d. 766/1364) on al-Risala al-Shamsiyya fi al-Quawa 'id al-Maniqiyya, by Nagm al-Din 'Ali b.

Gloss on logic (Qala-aqulu structure), apparently by al-Sayyid al-Sharif, whose name is mentioned variously. This is the gloss by al-Sayyid al-Sharif al-Gurgani (d. 816/1413), GAL G II, 216, on the commentary by Muhammad b.

Il Bulino. New. Hardcover. <p>It is unanimously regarded as the most beautiful among Renaissance geographical maps and it bears witness to the discovery of America. It was manufactured and illuminated in Portugal in 1502, right after Columbus’ and Vespucci’s voyages. It is drawn on six sheets of vellum joined together to make up a single 105 × 220 cm sheet. It was probably commissioned by ambassador Alberto Cantino to supply the Duke of Ferrara with documents showing the new dimensions of the world and the importance of the latest geographical discoveries. </p><p>The planisphere shows the coasts of the Caribbean and Brazil (it is the most ancient representation of the New World in Italy) , separated by the ‘raya’, the line that divided Portuguese colonies from the Spanish ones. Even though it is one of the first maps that represent the world without applying the Ptolemaic tradition, Cantino’s Map is still influenced by it, with reference to some stereotypes to which even after Columbus’ discoveries is still entrusted, such as the Tower of Babel, the realm of Prester John or Eden. In spite of the definition charta del navicare, that is to say a map used for sailing, it is for sure a planisphere realized for court geography, to be studied and contemplated. </p><p>Facsimile editionThis new edition of the Map, promoted by the Italian Ministry of Culture and presented by Laura Federzioni and Marco Cattini, is a joint-publication Il Bulino-Biblioteca Estense Universitaria.
