ORIGEN
ORIGEN. Quae hoc in libro continentur... Venice: Aldo Manuzio, 1503. The first Aldine edition of Origen's commentaries on various books of the Bible, including Genesis, Exodus, and Leviticus, among others. Origen, a native of the Egyptian city of Alexandria, is considered the father of Biblical exegesis and his influence on later biblical interpretation can hardly be overestimated. Nevertheless, certain doctrines which he espoused were later deemed suspect, and theologians approached his work with a certain ambivalence. Many of his works were later destroyed, but the commentary published here managed to be preserved in manuscript, and Aldus must have certainly appreciated Origen's contribution to Chrisitan scholarship by editing and printing this impressive folio. The edition is also of great importance from a bibliographical standpoint as it is the first time that Aldus's large, bordered printer's device of dolphin and anchor appears in one of his books. The book is also the first time that Aldus' financial partnership with his father-in-law, Andreas Torresanus, is alluded to (in the anonymous preface). Folio (28.7 x 19.5cm), [6], 182 leaves. Leaf 85 is in facsimile. Title-page and first ten leaves have marginal repairs with occasional slight infringement to a few letters. Some occasional staining and worming. Bound in later quarter calf over boards. [CNCE 55859. Renouard, 44.11. Adams O-29. Ahmanson-Murphy 72.]. [Attributes: First Edition]

Gebetbuch
Rheinland, frühes 16. Jh. (nach. 109 Bll. (von späterer Hand in Bleistift foliiert I, 108); so offensichtlich komplett. Lateinische Bastarda auf Pergament. Durchgehend mit ein- bis fünfzeiligen blauen und roten Lombardinitialen, einige wenige (Bll. 31r, 49r, 69r, 71v, 74v) mit Federwerk. Holzdeckelband der Zeit (Rücken fehlt; Hinterdeckel gebrochen). 12mo (65 x 90 mm). Hübsches, keiner bekannten Sammlung zuordenbares Gebetbuch im Taschenformat, nach dem wenig aufwendigen Fleuronnée und der Litanei wohl in den (nördlichen) Rheinlanden entstanden. Titel Bl. 1r: "Exhortacio salutaris terrorem iudicii ac timorem incutiens divinem ul[tionis]; incipit "Expergiscere o miserabilis homo" (zum Beginn, aber nicht zum weiteren Verlauf vgl. Nicolaus de Saliceto, Antidotarius animae). Enthält viele Ablassgebete; unter anderem Bl. 80r/v von Papst Alexander VI. zu Ehren der hl. Anna (1494; diese Bl. 38v auch in der Litanei an erster Stelle der weiblichen Heiligen genannt). Die Datierung kann mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit nach 1503 angesetzt werden, weil der Ablass für das Beten des Gebetes "Ave sanctissima virgo", den Papst Sixtus IV. gewährt hatte, gemäß Rubrum von Papst Julius II. (1503-13) verdoppelt wurde (Bl. 67r). Nach den Bußpsalmen (ab Bl. 31r) folgen Kyrie und Litanei (37v-38v: mit hl. Gereon und hl. Odila); auf Bll. 88r-97v Heiligengebete (u. a. für die Heiligen Rochus [Bl. 93v], Odilia [Bl. 95r], Gertrud [Bl. 95v], Apollonia [Bl. 96r], Maria Magdalena und Ursula [Bl. 97r]). - Im Rand des ersten Blatts recto späteres Zitat aus Maleachi 4.2 ("orietur vobis timentibus Deum sol iusti … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORIO, Bernardino (1459-1519). -
(Colophon:) Milano, Minutianum, 1503. In-folio. Pelle del '700, piatti con fregi oro, dorso con titolo e fregi oro; cerniere e cuffie restaurate. Una tav. f.t. che mostra il Corio al suo scrittoio ed una illus. n.t. con le armi dei Corio; ambedue le silogr., di ottima fattura, sono attribuite al pittore pavese Bernardino de' Conti. 426 (di 428) ff.; manca il secondo foglio al principio che ha sul verso l'effige della Virtù, ed il foglio aa1 su cui è ripetuta la raffigurazione del Corio allo scrittoio; esemplare altrimenti fresco e marginoso, con alcune antiche e nitide postille a penna. Prima edizione e «l'unica veramente completa, perchè molti luoghi furono tolti nelle ristampe; si crede comunemente che la nobiltà e i Duchi stessi che vedevano in troppi punti compromesso il loro prestigio e il loro buon nome, ordinarono queste soppressioni e in parte la distruzione dell'ed. già uscita, onde molti bibliogr. spiegano la grande rarità del libro» (Hoepli, Milano, 647). «Corio, storico (milanese)... caro agli Sforza... Lodovico il Moro lo incaricò di scrivere una storia di Milano... E' la prima scritta in Italiano... per i tempi più recenti, specialmente dai comuni in qua, è ampia, minuziosa, diligente, evidentemente condotta su fonti d'archivio... Nei sec. XVI e XVII l'opera fu ritenuta dai Milanesi una gloria nazionale, e faceva testo nelle questioni di precedenza, di nobiltà e simili» (Treccani XI, 411-412). Fossati-Bellani II, 1919. Brunet II, 273.

Guido, de Monte Rocherii; Hugh of Saint-Cher.
Stephani Balan {for Simon Vincent}. Rare edition of Guido's oft-printed Manipulus curatorum and Hugh's Speculum Sacerdotum -- two works designed to aid parish priests in their work and increase their understanding of the Mass -- here as an early output of the Baland (a.k.a., Balan, Ballain, Ballan, Balam) Press, which was active 1503-15. Spanish priest Guido de Monte Rocherii (a.k.a., Guido de Monte Rochen or Guy de Montrocher) first presented this handbook explaining how to administer the seven sacraments in the 14th century, and it quickly gained popularity and widespread distribution. Here his text is supported by a commentary on the Mass from a 13th-century French Dominican, Hugh of Saint-Cher, who may be best known for his biblical commentaries and for starting the first concordance of the Latin Bible. The portable text is printed in single columns of black letter with decorative initials (and a four-page index) in Guido's section, as well as unaccomplished guide letters in Hugh's; a printer's device, possibly Vincent's, appears on the title-page -- with a different Vincent device following the text preceding four blank leaves. This latter mark incorporates the Shroud of Turin, flanked by Saints Peter and Paul with key and sword. Estienne Baland seems to have begun printing in Lyons in 1502 with only one work surviving from that year. So, this 13 February 1503 imprint is clearly => a very early example of the press. Though the Manipulus curatorum was printed numerous times throughout the 15th and 16th centuries, searches of WorldCat, COPAC, and the NUC Pre-1956 … [Click Below for Full Description]

SOLINUS Caius Julius
Iehan Petit, 1503. In-16 gr. (mm. 197x135), cartoncino rustico mod., 4 cc.nn. (frontesp. e indice), 44 cc.num.; al frontespizio grande vignetta silografata con la bellissima marca tipografica su fondo nero; al verso dedica del curatore Jodicus Badius e la data "ad idus iulias Anni. M.D.III." L'opera è suddivisa in 65 capitoli. Giunta sino a noi col nome di "Collectanea rerum memorabilium" è nota anche col titolo di "Polyhistor" e "De memorabilibus mundis". "L'opera è una specie di descrizione della Terra o di corografia. Essa inizia con un'introduzione (cap. I) che si può dividere in due parti: la prima dedicata a Roma e alla storia romana fino ad Augusto; la seconda all'uomo (antropologia e fisiologia). Col 2° capitolo comincia la vera e propria descrizione: sono esaminate l'Italia, la Grecia, le regioni intorno al Mar Nero, la Germania, la Gallia, la Britannia, la Spagna, le province dell'Africa, l'Arabia, l'Asia Minore, l'India e l'impero dei Parti. L'opera non vuole essere rigorosamente scientifica, ma piuttosto una raccolta di 'curiosità', con speciale riferimento ai caratteri fisici e sociali dei popoli esotici, agli animali, ai vegetali e ai minerali. L'autore si è proposto di scrivere un libro di piacevole lettura: ma in realtà lo stile è freddo e artificioso. Sebbene Solino non citi mai le fonti, i tre quarti del trattato appaiono desunti dai libri III-XIII e XXXVII della "Storia naturale" di Plinio il Vecchio. Oltre a Plinio il Solino ha tenuto presenti la "Corografia" di Pomponio Mela e altre opere perdute. Non mancano nei "Collectanea" notizie a noi altrimenti i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Foresti, Jacopo Filippo, da Bergamo
Venice: A. Vercellenius, 1503. 452,[9] leaves. Folio. Medieval vellum manuscript over boards, rebacked in vellum at an early date, manuscript label. Boards rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Titlepage lightly soiled and with contemporary hand-coloring. Minor soiling and foxing to text, contemporary underlining and annotations throughout, sometimes trimmed closely with loss to annotations. Very good. An important illustrated history of the world, containing in this edition some of the earliest published references to Columbus' voyage and the discovery of the New World. First published in 1486, this is the fifth illustrated edition to be produced in Italy, but the first to contain any of the Columbus references. The original text, tracing world history from Adam, was written by Philip of Bergamo (1434-1520) and later brought up to date by other hands. The Columbian references, which occur on leaves 441-442, briefly describe the first voyage of Columbus and the lands he discovered for Spain. It places this work among the handful of texts to describe the discovery of the New World in the first decade after Columbus' return and the publication of his Letter in 1493. Besides the New World references, this work is a magnificent example of Italian woodcut printing, with four impressive full-page woodcuts of the Creation, Expulsion from Eden, the Death of Abel, and the Tower of Babel. There are also ninety-five smaller woodcuts of city views, forty-seven of which are repetitions, but with larger views of Verona, Genoa, Rome, Milan, and Venice.

SOUSA, João de.
Palau 320779; Schnurrer, Bibl. Arabica 186; not in Atabey; Blackmer. First and only edition of a collection of letters written in Arabic during the reigns of Kings Manuel I and João III of Portugal (numbered 1-58 in chronological order, the dated letters from 1503 to 1528), from the official Portuguese state correspondence, with the original Arabic and a parallel Portuguese translation. The letters came from North Africa, the Gulf, East Africa, India and the East Indies. The writers include kings, princes, governors, wazirs, sheikhs and noblemen, including Kings "Mahomed Xáh" and "Mir Abanasar" of Ormus, King "Azarkam" of Barus in Sumatra, and kings of Fez, Malindi and Calicut/Kozhikode. They are especially important for the light they shed on Portugal's East Indian trade, but also provide a rare primary source of information about Islamic leaders for whom little documentation has survived. The original Arabic appears in the inside columns with the Portuguese translation in the outside columns, and the apparatus and notes are in Portuguese. João de Sousa (1734-1812), born in Damascus, came to Portugal in 1750 and was appointed the first professor of Arabic at the University of Lisbon.Some minor spots in the margins of the first and last few leaves, otherwise in very good condition.

SOUSA, João de.
Palau 320779; Schnurrer, Bibl. Arabica 186; not in Atabey; Blackmer. First and only edition of a collection of letters written in Arabic during the reigns of Kings Manuel I and João III of Portugal (numbered 1-58 in chronological order, the dated letters from 1503 to 1528), from the official Portuguese state correspondence, with the original Arabic and a parallel Portuguese translation. The letters came from North Africa, the Gulf, East Africa, India and the East Indies. The writers include kings, princes, governors, wazirs, sheikhs and noblemen, including Kings "Mahomed Xáh" and "Mir Abanasar" of Ormus, King "Azarkam" of Barus in Sumatra, and kings of Fez, Malindi and Calicut/Kozhikode. They are especially important for the light they shed on Portugal's East Indian trade, but also provide a rare primary source of information about Islamic leaders for whom little documentation has survived. The original Arabic appears in the inside columns with the Portuguese translation in the outside columns, and the apparatus and notes are in Portuguese. João de Sousa (1734-1812), born in Damascus, came to Portugal in 1750 and was appointed the first professor of Arabic at the University of Lisbon.Some minor spots in the margins of the first and last few leaves, otherwise in very good condition. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities, some wormholes along one hinge, recased, but still attractive. A remarkable primary source for numerous Arabic-speaking leaders and their relations with Portugal in the early 1500s.

(BINDINGS - EARLY). MANCINELLI, ANTONIO
Basel: Nicolaus Kesler, 1503. This handsome volume contains the pedagogical writing of an Italian humanist educator, printed by a guild master in Basel, bound in Erfurt, Thuringia, and once owned by the first Duke of Saxony-Meiningen. Antonio Mancinelli (1452-1505) taught rhetoric and grammar in Venice, Rome, Orvieto, and at a school he founded in his hometown of Velletri. His textbooks on the subjects, and his scholarly commentaries on Roman and Latin literature were widely printed, making him one of the most published humanist authors of the 15th century. The present collection of his texts bears the neat ink annotations of a 16th century scholar. Our book made its way to the Thuringia region in central Germany, where it was bound by an Erfurt workshop active from 1490 to about 1520. The book was still in that region more than a century later, when it became part of the collection of Bernhard I, Duke [Herzog] of Saxony-Meiningen, a scholarly man who built an impressive library at his residence, Schloss Elizabethenburg. The duke marked his books with the initials of his motto, I. V. C. T. ("In vulneribus Christi triumpho," or "I triumph in the wounds of Christ"), and his name and title, Bernhard Herzog von Sachsen-Meiningen, as well as the date of acquisition. Apart from a little soiling to the pigskin, our volume is little changed from the days it graced the ducal library in Meiningen.. 211 x 140 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 1/2"). [294] leaves.

Titolo silografico in grandi caratteri gotici, due imprese tipografiche (Kristeller 100) in fine, alcune grandi splendide iniziali istoriate con stemmi e scene sacre; nei margini centinaia di maniculae silogr. ad indicare i passi più importanti. Il volume è illustrato al r. del f. 2, da una magnifica silografia a piena pagina raffig. S. Gerolamo in penitenza, entro elaborata bordura con putti, fregi e stemmi di Saluzzo e della Marchesa Marguérite de Foix. Talvolta attribuita a Jacopo Bolognese, è certamente di ambito milanese e rimanda ad alcuni legni pubblicati dagli stessi Le Signerre a Milano.

Immer wieder wurde die Ausgabe u.a. Albertus Magnus (1193-1280) zugeschrieben, erst in neuerer Zeit wird davon ausgegangen, daß Hugo Ripelin von Straßburg (1210-1270, auch Hugo Argentinensis) das Compendium wohl 1260 oder 1268 verfaßt hat. "Da bereits das 1. Buch seines 'Compendium (Summa) theologicae veritatis', das 'Breviloquium' Bonaventuras als Quelle verwertet, kann es nicht vor 1257 abgefaßt sein.

CÓRDOBA, Alfonso de; REGIOMONTANUS, Johannes.
Petrus Liechtenstein; ibid 28 December 1503; February 1504, [Colophon:] Venice; ibid. First edition, the fine Doheny copy in an untouched near-contemporary binding, of Alfonso de Córdoba?s rare astronomical tables, an important source for Copernicus who referred to them in the Commentariolus (the first draft of his planetary theory, which remained unpublished until the late 19th century). They are here bound with the second edition of Regiomontanus?s astrological tables, the Tabulae directionum, compiled in 1467 and first published in 1490; according to Zinner (p. 95), these tables were also used by Copernicus. The Tabulae directionum contain the first table of tangents for use in astronomy. Córdoba?s tables are divided into two parts: the first includes a dedication to Ferdinand V (1452-1516) and Isabella (1451-1504), King and Queen of Spain (who, most famously, sent Columbus on his voyage to discover a route to the East Indies) and a set of canons in sixty chapters explaining the use of the tables, with several examples; the second part contains the tables. ?In the Commentariolus, Copernicus refers to the length of the year, and mentions the values given by four astronomers: Hipparchus, Ptolemy, al-Battani and a fourth referred to as ?Hispalensis? whose identity remained a mystery until the 20th century, when he was identified as Alfonso de Córdoba, a Spanish astronomer and doctor of arts and medicine probably born in 1458 in Seville?

Im Hintergrund die Belagerung von Gotha, oben rechts Wappen, der Porträtierte unter einem Bogen nach rechts blickend, darunter ein Engel und das Monogramm, rechts unten die Titelkartusche. - Aufgrund des Monogramms wurde das Porträt lange Paul Reffler zugeschrieben, seit Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts wird es Rodelstedt zugeschrieben, über dessen Herkunft und Werdegang wenig bekannt ist. "Seit 1547 ist er als fertiger, vielseitig beschäftigter Maler in Weimar nachweisbar. Es ist daher anzunehmen, dass er schon vor 1547 in der Werkstatt von Lukas Cranach dem Älteren als Schüler und Gehilfe tätig war. Vermutlich hat er dort überhaupt seine Ausbildung erfahren. Am 25.7.1553, noch vor dem Tode Cranachs des Älteren, wird G. zum Hofmaler der sächsischen Fürsten und damit zum Amtsnachfolger Cranachs ernannt."
