CALENZIO, Elisio. 1430-1502/3
J. Besicken 12 December, Rome, 1503. Only Edition: poems and prose representative of the brilliant cultural circle at the Aragonese court in Naples. Calenzio (1430-1502/3) was, first, King Federico's tutor, then his trusted diplomat and treasurer. His son Lucio enlisted his father's friend, the humanist Colocci (1474-1549), to shepherd his father's works through the press, including his Croacus or Battle of the Frogs and Mice, his most frequently reprinted piece. As editor, Colocci often radically intervened, rewriting entire passages. He did not, however, suppress the author's obscene poems, licentious letters, scandalous fable (Cineus and Philaeus retold) or erotic epigrams. (Some transgressive words have been censored by a later hand.) Other works include orations on the fall of Constantinople, royal epithalamia, amorous autobiographical lines and the earliest explicit account of THE FIRST SUCCESSFUL PLASTIC SURGERIES (performed by the Brancas in Sicily). Apparently, at the last minute, Colocci canceled one piece promised on the title (Satyra ad Longum), likely unwilling to face the repercussions. Intimate with book production, Colocci not only prepared Calenzio's manuscripts for this edition and worked with Besicken on two collections of vernacular sonnets and songs, but also, from 1516, hosted the Greek College in Rome, housed its press and oversaw its production. This folio's unusual quiring scheme may well reflect chaotic text preparation and stop-press corrections. Indeed, Colocci emended this, his own copy, in three places by hand. The four vellum leaves have their … [Click Below for Full Description]

[VARTHEMA, Ludovico di, Pietro Martire d'ANGHIERA and others].
[10], 466, [6] ll.First English edition of Ludovico di Varthema's famous account of travels to Arabia, Syria, Persia, Ethiopia, India and the East Indies: a highly important and adventurous narrative including his 1503 visit to Mecca and Medina, the first recorded visit of a European (probably of any non-Muslim) to the Islamic holy cities. "Varthema's Itinerario, first published in 1510, had an enormous impact at the time, and in some respects determined the course of European expansion towards the Orient" (Howgego). It is here combined with various other travel accounts, including some taken from a collection by d'Anghiera. Varthema's account became a bestseller as soon as it appeared in 1510 and went through about twenty editions in various languages in the next fifty years. It certainly provided many Europeans with their first glimpse of Islamic culture and of non-European cultures in general.With a contemporary manuscript table of contents and an occasional marginal manuscript note in the same hand, and the armorial bookplate of Sir Arthur Help (1813-1875). With the first 6 and last 8 leaves in a 19th-century facsimile, but otherwise in good condition, with the head or foot of 4 leaves extended and a few other marginal defects not affecting the text. Binding fine. First English edition of a seminal work on the Middle East.l Cox I, p. 2; ESTC S122069; Howgego, to 1800, V15.

Spanish legal manuscript), constructed or reconstructed ca. 1900. [268]; [190] ll. "Exceptionally important" (Lowry) first edition, in the original Greek, of most of the surviving plays of Euripides. It contains 18 plays, fourteen printed here for the first time and four for the second (and in a much more accurate text). This first edition of nearly all his surviving plays (Electra remained unprinted until 1545) certainly assured the survival of the greater part of Greek historical drama. Only 4 of his plays had been printed previously, by J. Lascaris in Florence, 1495, also in Greek. In Thomas More's 1516 Utopia, his hero Raphael gives a collection of Greeks books to the Utopians: Plato, Aristotle, Theophrastus, Plutarch, Homer, Aristophanes, Sophocles and Euripides, all in Aldine editions (Lowry, p. 262). Aldus's first Greek types, in 1495, set the style for the future by following a sloped cursive hand rather than the rounder upright hand that dominated the incunabula period.

Eckert's second edition of the Vita Christi, one of the most popular and influential devotional works of the later Middle Ages appearing in many languages by the end of the fifteenth century. Henrick Eckert van Homberch moved to Antwerp from Delft in 1500 and set up his business in the Huys van Delft, where he published until his death in late 1523 or early 1524. He published a continuous flow of works of quite varied nature-including classical authors, romances of chivalry and school books - though chiefly with a religious content. In 1503 he published this edition of Leven ons liefs heeren Ihesu Cristi. According to both title-page and colophon this is a second edition, but no traces have been found of an earlier edition by Van Homberch.

Nicholas deOrbellis 1400-1475
[Haguenau] : Impressum opera industrij Henrici Gran in oppido Imperiali Hagenaw ibidem cuius, expensis autem honesti [et] prouid, 1503. Nicolas de Orbellis' commentary on John Duns Scotus' commentary on Peter Lombard's Sententiae. He seems to have entered the monastery of the Observantines, founded in 1407, one of the first in France.He was professor of theology and philosophy in the University of Angers, where he enjoyed great reputation as an expounder of the teaching of John Duns Scotus. After 1465 he wrote his chief work, a commentary on the Four Books of Sententiae 'Sentences'.He died at Rome in 1475 and was interred in the church of the Ara Coeli on the Capitoline. Under the entry for the word Dorbel, the Oxford English Dictionary gives the date of his death as 1455. The meaning of Dorbel (based on the name of Nicholas de Orbellis) is given as: a scholastical pedant, a dull-witted person, dolt. Yet Wulf refers this book as "the classic handbook of the Franciscan school", furthermore , it went through at least 15 editions. See Stegmüller: Repertory, n. 592 (the following editions are recorded: Paris 1488; 1498; Rouen e. 1499; Hagenau 1503; Lyon 1503; Venetia 1507; Paris 1509; 1511; 1515; 1520). See also dict. Theol.

"The Postilla found in more than one hundred incunable editions as the work of one Guillelmus Parisiensis is apparently the same as the Postilla found in various manuscripts under the name of Johannes Herolt. A number of medieval authors went under the name of Guillelmus Parisiensis, but the Guillelmus who signed the preface of these Postilla, "sacre theologie professor minimus parisius educatus," can be identified with none of them." The Postilla was first compiled in 1437 for clergy members seeking commentary on the lessons read at services throughout the year.

Venice, in aedibus Aldi November 1503. Octavo (156 x 92 mm.), 290 unnumbered leaves. First two pages a little dust soiled, title page with an old restoration and with a collector's signature, head of spine restored, overall a fine copy in XVIII century mottled calf, spine in comparments richly gilt with red lettering piece.First of three Aldine editions of the Planudean Anthology, the only by Aldus the Elder (the others being that of 1521 and 1551), defined by Renouard "the most beautiful for the paper and the impression, and also the rarest one".Aldus realized it ten years after the Florentine editio princeps, given by the famous Byzantine humanist Janus Lascaris in 1494 under the title of Anthologia Graeca. Renouard held in his hands the copy of the Lascaris' edition annotated in Greek and Latin by Aldus himself, which served as the typographic basis for the 1503 edition, and, later on, for the 1521 one. Having decided to follow Lascaris' text, Aldus assembled in the last pages of the seventh book the textual variants recovered by other manuscripts, as well as 19 new epigrams and some other verses; moreover, he joined to the seventh book a short supplement, consisting of 2 other anonymous epigrams, a poem by the 6th century Greek poet Paul the Silentiary, and other minor works.The Planudean Anthology is a 13th century collection of Greek epigrams compiled by the Byzantine polymath Maximus Planudes, consisting of ca. 2,400 texts. It was based on the lost anthology realized in the 10th century by another Byzantine scholar, Constantine Cephalas, which also lay at the basis o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Only Edition: poems and prose representative of the brilliant cultural circle at the Aragonese court in Naples. Calenzio (1430-1502/3) was, first, King Federico's tutor, then his trusted diplomat and treasurer.  His son Lucio enlisted his father's friend, the humanist Colocci (1474-1549), to shepherd his father's works through the press, including his Croacus or Battle of the Frogs and Mice, his most frequently reprinted piece. As editor, Colocci often radically intervened, rewriting entire passages.

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.<br> 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.

OMAR TIBERIADES ('Umar ibn al-Farrukhan al-TABARI).
Venice, Giovanni Battista Sessa, 1503. 4to, ff. 32, roman letter, with a large allegorical woodcut on title representing Jupiter, Mars, Saturn and other astronomical bodies, several printed charts, a woodcut table (f. 30v), woodcut initials, and woodcut printer's devices at foot of title (Zappella 602) and beneath colophon (Zappella 277); title and verso of final leaf slightly dust-soiled, inner margin of title a little stained, some light foxing, trimmed rather close at head, but a good copy in modern red morocco.First edition of Omar Tiberiades's influential astrological treatise, edited by the renowned astrologer and mathematician Luca Gaurico (1475–1558); extremely rare.In its original Arabic, Omar's treatise is essentially a translation, with later interpolations, from the Middle Persian translation of the original Greek of Dorotheus of Sidon's Pentateuch (late first century AD). It is therefore one of our best sources for the study of Hellenistic astrology. As the title of Dorotheus's work suggests, it is divided into five books (Omar's third book in fact incorporates the final three of the Pentateuch), the first four dealing with natal astrology and the fifth with electional and inceptional astrology (katarchic astrology).'Together with Messahalah, the Persian astrologer 'Umar ibn al-Farru?an a?-?abari belonged to the earliest generation of astrologers active in Baghdad in the first decades of the Abbasid empire. Omar was involved in drawing up the horoscope for the foundation of Baghdad in 762, and apparently continued to have good relations to the court. He still l … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEFÈVRE D'ÉTAPLES, Jacques, BO[U]VELLES, Charles de, & CLICHTOVE, Josse
H. Estienne & W. Hopyl, Paris, 1503. First edition of this very rare collection of works, in an attractive Roger Payne binding. The individual works are all first editions with the exception of Lefèvre's Epitome of Boethius' De arithmetica (first, 1496) and an unattributed Opusculum de p[r]axi numerorum quod Algorismum vovant, actually the Algorismus of Sacrobosco (no earlier printing than this one in auction records). This latter text was the first to introduce Hindu-Arabic numerals into the European university curriculum, thereby greatly simplifying the procedures of practical calculation. The geometrical part of the volume comprises several works of Bovelles (ca. 1479-1567), which deal with the classical problems of the quadrature of the circle and duplication of the cube, and contain a highly original study of stellated polygons. Bovelles also gives here the first published account of the cycloid, a curve that was to be of great significance in the seventeenth century development of mathematics leading up to the invention of calculus and for Huygens' isochronous pendulum clock. The volume concludes with Lefèvre's treatise on astronomy. This is a very rare book on the market, with no other copies located in auction records. Provenance: Fol. XLVIIIv with two inscriptions in French, by Guillaume Lailo (?) (dated 1520) and Elisabeth Bowland (dated 18 October 1580); the classics scholar and eminent bibliophile Michael Woodhull (1740-1816) (initial blank with his signature dated June 7th 1783 and later pencil inscription indicating that the book was sold in the Woodhull sale, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Erste Ausgabe bei Aldus, zweite Ausgabe des griechischen Textes von Lucian überhaupt (EA: Jannus Lascaris, Florenz 1496). Editio princeps von Philostratus (von Lemnos oder auch der Ältere und der Jüngere) u.a. mit den „Icones" und Kallistratus, deren, hier erstmalig gedruckte Texte, Beschreibungen von Gemälden und Statuen eine wichtige Quelle zur antiken Kunst sind. Der unbekannte Herausgeber (möglicherweise Aldus selbst) griff nicht auf die EA zurück, sondern arbeitete mit anderen Manuskripten als Lascaris, so dass Moss ungenau schreibt: „It is printed on a very beautiful paper, but contains a very defective text." Die zweite Aldus-Ausgabe, herausgegeben von Asulanus, beinhaltet zwar einige Korrekturen, aber Thompson stellt in seinem Textvergleich heraus, „that the errors were mostly minor, being in accents and spellings rather than omissions or interpolations" (s. „The Translation of Lucian", Revue belge de philologie et d’histoire, XVIII, p. 878). Wie auch immer ist diese Folio-Ausgabe trotz aller vermeintlichen philologischen Unzulänglichkeiten die – im Vergleich zur ersten und dritten Edition – um ein Vielfaches einflussreichere Ausgabe, weil von ihr aus der Text in Nordeur … [Click Below for Full Description]

NOSTRADAMUS, Michel].
1503. VIII, 90, [1], [1 blank] pp.Rare first edition of a work containing 20 adapted prophecies of the French apothecary and seer Michel de Nostradamus (1503-1566). Nostradamus's predictions, first published in 1555 as Les proheties, are here edited by an anonymous author, giving an explanation of and opinion about each prophecy. Each prophecy is preceded by an oval emblematic engraving, 6 signed by the Antwerp-based engraver Pieter Balthazar Bouttats (1666-1756). Since the engravings don't relate to the text, they were probably originally made to illustrate an earlier work, and were reused in the present work.With bookplate.

SYMMACHUS, Quintus Aurelius.
First dated edition of Epistolae familiares containing 343 letters by the Roman statesman and orator Quintus Aurelius Symmachus (ca. 345-402), addressed to a wide circle of relations, friends, and acquaintances and all written in a refined style. Although many of them are only short notes, together they provide a fascinating window into the late Roman senatorial aristocracy. The priority of the editions is uncertain, but what is often considered the first was published in Venice between 1503 and 1513.The main text is followed by a spurious collection of letters from and to the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II (1432-1481), but actually written by the humanist Laudivius Zacchia. "The so-called Epistolae magni Turci begin with a letter from Mehmed ... to Zancassanus, 'King of Persia'. As in the rest of the collection, the exchange follows a set pattern: angry, menacing boasts from the sultan, followed by a reply from the threatened party, which parries the worst of the bluster and thus rhetorically disarms the Turk" (Meserve). The book, first published in 1473, was a success and reprinted numerous times well into the 17th-century, undoubtedly because many Europeans feared the advancing Ottoman Empire (the Battle of Mohács was to give the Ottomans a decisive victory in Hungary in 1526).The present edition is the first combined edition of the two works. Another edition including both works was published only two months later by another Strassburg publisher Johann Grüninger on 9 October 1510. A line for line reprint of the present edition was published in 1511.With some under … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORIGEN
aedibus Aldo I Manuzio. 1503 1st Aldine ed ORIGEN Bible + Commentary Aldus Aldo Manuzio Pentateuch RARE Origen was a 3rd-century Greek scholar and early Christian theologian. He was a prolific writer known for his biblical exegeses, philosophy, and sermons, and was one of the most influential figures in early Christian asceticism. (Finn, 100). This first Aldine edition of Origen s commentary on Old Testament books includes notes on Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Judges. While few early 16th-century printings of Origen exist today, this one is of even more importance because of the use of the Aldine printer device. Aldine would continue to use the dolphin and anchor device in volumes following this. Highly rare! Highly valuable! The scarcity of this first edition is exemplified by the number institutions that hold this work. According to the USTC, only three libraries in the United States possess this book.

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]
