        Patria historia. Historia continente de l'origine di Milano tutti li gesti, fatti e dettagli preclari in fine al tempo di esso autore, con somma fedeltà in Idioma Italico composta con il Repertorio prontissimo.. Milano, apud Alexandrum Minutianum, 1503

      Minuziano A, 1503. in - folio (mm. 394x265), ff. (6 prelim.), (+7 con il "Repertorium Chronicae" ristampato nel XVIII secolo), (422); solida leg. 700esca. p. pelle marrone chiaro, dorso a nervi con tassello e tit. oro, tagli rossi. Impresso con nitido car. romano. L'opera è così illustrata: una silografia a piena pag. (al v. del secondo f. prelim.) con la Virtù che sostiene 2 stemmi, l'uno dei Corio, l'altro degli Ascanio; due altre a piena pagina (al v. del quinto f. prelim. e ripetuta al f. aa1) raffig. l'autore seduto allo scrittoio con nella mano destra una penna, ai suoi piedi un cagnolino, in basso i due versi del Dolcino «Bernardine tibi Insubres debere fatentur/ non minus ac magno Roma superba Tito» ed in alto i motti «E' bello dopo il morire vivere anchora», «Amica veritas» e «Sustine et abstine» ; ed una silogr. a mezza pag. (recto di ff3) con la Virtù che sostiene lo stemma dei Corio. Queste silografie sono considerate ("Illustrazione del libro in Lombardia nel '400 e '500" a cura di SAMEK LUDOVICI, 1960) opera di un artista di cerchia leonardesca, pur presentando influssi ferraresi - mantegneschi; alcuni le dissero opera di Bernardino de' Conti, pittore di Pavia, autore anche di un ritratto (Parigi, Jacquemart - André) che si è presupposto essere quello del Corio; KRISTELLER, invece, le attribuisce al Maestro del Melchiorre da Parma (cfr. Lombardische Graphic, pp. 54 - 6 e 100 - 101). Edizione originale ed unica veramente completa, poiché molti passi furono soppressi nelle edizioni successive a causa di alcuni giudizi negativi sui Duchi milanesi, i quali ordinarono la distruzione degli esemplari impressi, e ciò ne spiega la grande rarità. L'opera, in sette parti, è la più importante storia di Milano, dalle origini alla fuga del Moro in Germania e la principale del Corio, che la iniziò nel 1485 pubblicandola a proprie spese coi tipi del Minuziano. La notevole rarità di quest'opera già nei secoli scorsi fece sì che la gran parte degli esemplari venisse completata con fogli di testo impressi con caratteri lievemente diversi e con le figure copiate su rame, insostituzione dei legni originali. Questa particolarità è difficilmente riscontrabile senza poter confrontare più esemplari tra loro, ed è quindi possibile che non sia stata evidenziata nelle descrizioni di bibliografie e cataloghi di vendita. Il Sander, ad esempio, cita equivocamente un esemplare di un cat. Rosenthal del 1927 "dans lequel le portrait n'est pas gravé sur bois, mais à l'eau - forte". In alcuni rarissimi esemplari, vennero aggiunte all'inizio sei carte con un utile indice, impresse dai fratelli da Legnano pochi anni più tardi; questo esempl. assai bello, a grandi margini, fu corredato al momento della rilegatura di un "Repertorio" ristampato nel XVIII secolo senza la bordura silografica (margine basso o esterno dei primi 16 ff. e dell'ultimo restaurato o rinforzato; lieve censura a penna sul f. a5; rare chiose di mano coeva nei margini). figure in legno (Virtù, al v. del secondo f. prelim, 2 ritratti di Corio, al v. del quinto f. prelim. e ripetuta al f. aa, e figura allegorica con stemma, al recto del f. ff3), la prima tiratura della dedica ; il Repertorio, senza la bordura, in tiratura del ?600, doppia versione del f. a4.

        Aureum Opus de Veritate Contritionis. In quo mirifica documenta eterne salutis aperiuntur. (F. 158, v.:) Salutijs impressum.., Le Signerre fratres Rothomagenses, anno Salutis 1503, die prima Julij (Saluzzo, 1 Luglio 1503)

      Le Signerre, 1503. in - folio (mm 299x210), ff. 158 (erroneamente numerati 160), ff. 28 n.n. d'Indici, legatura secentesca in pergamena semifloscia. 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. Secondo Lippmann (Art of wood - engraving in Italy, p.147). ''the effect produced is one of concentrated power''. Dedica di Bernardino Dardano a Ludovico II, Marchese di Saluzzo ed al verso della silografia altra del giurista Francesco Cavassa, Vicario in Asti. L'arrivo del Dardano da Parma come precettore dell'erede e del Vivaldi da Mondovì come confessore del Marchese rappresentò ''l'anello di congiungimento tra la cultura teologica e la cultura propriamente umanistica'' (Vinay, L'umanesimo subalpino, p.107). Il primo libro figurato impresso a Saluzzo, e prima edizione dell'opera principale del frate domenicano. Vi esamina a fondo il sacramento della confessione, i dieci comandamenti, tipi di peccato, le quattro virtù cardinali, i precetti della Chiesa. In fine un'epistola all'autore da parte del confratello Girolamo Cervi da Bellano, del quale segue il vastissimo indice. Lodovico II del Vasto (1438 - 1504) ebbe una buona cultura umanistica ed invitò i fratelli Le Signerre per una stabile attività tipografica; ma a causa della morte del Marchese cedettero i torchi ed i tipi a Giacomo de Circhis di S.Damiano d'Asti il quale stampò l'"Opus Regale" nel 1507. Bellissimo nel colophon è l'omaggio dei tipografi francesi alla città che li ospita: "Sors mea Salutias postquam me duxit ad arces qua fluit e Vesuli vertice lympha Padi" Edizione di straordinaria bellezza, importanza e rarità. Esemplare assai puro, a grandi margini (alone marginale agli ultimi 3 fogli). Malgrado non sia censita in SBN, figura in una decina di biblioteche piemontesi (alcuni esempl. mancanti della silografia).

Tanto para transmitir el beneficio de los comportamientos virtuosos, como el peligro que comportaba claudicar ante los vicios, acudió a presentar diferentes situaciones por medio de noventa y nueve fábulas que parecen originales salvo en el caso del libro primero, donde parte de ellas están tomadas de Esopo. Una de las peculiaridades que ofrecen sus fábulas es que no se ciñen a situaciones y conversaciones entre animales, sino que también se presentan conversaciones entre entre una calabaza y una palmera (lib. 3, cap. 13), nada menos que entre la tierra y el motor inmóvil (lib. 3, cáp. 21) o entre el agua, el aceite y el fuego (lib. 4, cáp. 6), acudiendo al conocido efecto de la paradójica llamarada que se produce si se arroja agua sobre aceite ardiendo, para prevenir contra dejarse llevar por el inmenso, pero fugaz, ardor de la pasión.- // Refs.: Marsà, Rioja, 9A; Martin Abad, Post-incunables, 411 ; Norton, 372; Palau, 54886.

        Latin ms. on vellum.

      Rhineland, early 16th c. (after 1503). - 12mo (65 x 90 mm). 109 ff. (numbered i, 108 in pencil by a later hand); thus complete. Latin bastarda on vellum. With blue and red Lombardic initials throughout, a few (ff. 31r, 49r, 69r, 71v, 74v) with penwork decoration. Contemp. wooden boards (wants spine; lower cover cracked). A pretty, pocket-size prayer book, not classifiable as belonging to any known collection. Based on the unsophisticated penwork and the litany, it was probably created in the (northern) Rhineland. Title (fol. 1r): "Exhortacio salutaris terrorem iudicii ac timorem incutiens divinem ul[tionis]; incipit "Expergiscere o miserabilis homo" (for the beginning, but not the remainder of the text, cf. Nicolaus de Saliceto, Antidotarius animae). Contains numerous indulgences, including (fol. 80r/v) one by Pope Alexander VI in honour of Saint Anne (1494; she is also the first female Saint mentioned in the litany, fol. 38v). As the indulgence granted by Pope Sixtus IV for performing the prayer "Ave sanctissima virgo" was doubled by Pope Julius II (1503-13) (cf. fol. 67r), the date can be assumed with a high degree of certainty as after 1503. The penitential psalms (fol. 31r ff.) are followed by the kyrie and litany (37v-38v: with SS. Gereon and Odila); fols. 88r-97v contain prayers to the Saints (including SS. Rochus [fol. 93v], Odilia [fol. 95r], Gertrude [fol. 95v], Apollonia [fol. 96r], Mary Magdalene and Ursula [fol. 97r]). - Later quotation from Maleachi 4:2 in the margin of the first page ("orietur vobis timentibus Deum sol iustitiae"); the blank verso contains a longer note "Dum quis intrat Ecclesiam Auffer a nobis quis Domine cunctas iniquitates nostras" etc.; some additional early modern marginalia. Ownership "Co[.] Rabenau" (2nd half of 18th c.) on inside upper cover. Wooden boards show traces of a former calf binding, with the impression of an armorial stamp on the upper cover; lower cover split near the binding. Right edge of upper cover, as well as lower edge, show traces of gnawing (no loss to text). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        NOVISSIME HYSTORIARUM OMNIUM REPERCUSSIONES, NOVITER...EDITAE

      Venice, 1503. Folio. Medieval vellum manuscript over boards, rebacked in vellum at an early date, manuscript spine label. Boards rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Titlepage lightly soiled, 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 published 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 441-42, describe briefly 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. Some of the blocks were used in earlier printings, but the four large cuts are unique to this edition. A rare, very early Americanum with notable illustrations.

        CONSTITUTIONS, CEREMONIAL AND TONARY OF THE NUNS OF ST. MARY MAGDALENE OF SIENA Renaissance music manuscript with an important painted binding

      BOOK DESCRIPTION: DECORATED RENAISSANCE MANUSCRIPT IN LATIN AND AND ITALIAN WITH MUSICAL NOTATION ON VELLUM, Italy, Siena, after 1503-c. 1526, and c. 1539-51, 233 x 162 mm., 68 folios, complete (collation, i-iii8 iv10 v8 vi4 vii-ix6 x4), written by in a running gothico-antiqua script and in an upright gothic bookhand, later section in an italic script, square musical notation on red four- and three-line staves, red rubrics, six- to one-line red initials. BINDING: AN EXCEPTIONAL BLIND-STAMPED BINDING decorated WITH AN EARLY SIXTEENTH-CENTURY SIENESE PAINTING of the convent?'s patron, St. Mary Magdalene, in the manner of Siena?'s famous painted bindings from the Biccherna. On the back cover, a rectangular panel, measuring 210 x 90 mm., has been cut out from the leather covering, and a painting added on the wood of St. Mary Magdalene holding her jar of ointments; it is contemporary with the main text of the manuscript, i.e., c. 1503-1526; stylistically its draperies may be compared to works by Giacomo Pacchiarotti (1474-1539-40). There was a similar figure of Mary Magdalene also depicted full-length with one hand raised in blessing, the other holding the ointment jar, found in the Altarpiece in the Bichi Chapel in Sant?'Agostino painted by Luca Signorelli, ca. 1489-90. TEXT: This copy of the Constitutions and Ceremonial in Italian from St. Mary Magdalene in Siena sheds important light on the liturgical life of the convent; details concerning the chant, including noted passages, are of particular interest given the importance of music in Italian convents during the Renaissance: ff. 1-13v, Constitutiones monalium sancte marie magdalene de senis ordinis eremtiarum sancte augustini , twenty chapters related to the life of the Convent in Italian; ff. 14v-24v, Cerimoniale, describing the liturgy followed in the Convent, including the musical variations for the Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Agnus dei, Ite misa est, Benedicamus, and Deo dicamus, with musical notation, for different types of feasts; ff. 25-45v, a Tonary; ff. 47-67v, a faithful copy of ff. 1-13v in an updated version. PROVENACE: Written in Siena, Italy at the Convent of the Nuns of St. Mary Magdalene of the Hermits of St. Augustine; the original section of the manuscript, ff. 1-46v, can be dated after 1503, since Pope Pius III, Pope from September 22-October 18, 1503, is mentioned on f. 4v. It seems likely that it dates before 1526, the year the Convent of St. Mary Magdalene was destroyed, and the Nuns were forced to re-locate within the city walls. The Constitutions, found on ff. 1-13v, were re-copied in an elegant italic script on ff. 47-67v, while Girolamo of Naples was the Vicar General of the Augustinians; this Girolamo can possibly be identified as Girolamo Seripando (1493-1563), and the time narrowed down to between 1539-41, when he visited all the Augustinian houses under his charge. The Convent of St. Mary Magdalene, or Maddalena, in Siena was founded in 1339; from c. 1507, Pandolfo Petrucci (1452-1512), was the community?'s powerful patron. The Convent was destroyed in 1526, and was rebuilt inside the city walls, and continued to be a place where the nobility sent their daughters. Belonged to Richard Bladworth Angus (1831-1922), the wealthy Canadian banker and philanthropist. Sold at Sotheby?'s, November 26, 1985, lot 99, possibly to H. P. Kraus, N.Y. Belonged to Martin Schøyen (b. 1940), Norway, and London; Schøyen Collection, MS 34. CONDITION: text is legible throughout, some staining and soiling, especially in lower margins, ff. 8v-9, stain within the text space, occasional words within the text, ff. 1-24v, faded, erasures bottom margin, f. 20v.

        [Greek letters] Tragoedia septendecim

      Venice: Aldus Manutius,, February 1503. 2 volumes in one, Aldine octavo (159 x 98 mm). Nineteenth-century brown morocco gilt. All 5 blanks preserved. Woodcut Aldine device on last leaf of both volumes. With the morocco bookplate of Henry Huth (his sale Sotheby's 3 June 1913, lot 2749); pencilled collated note of Bernard Quaritch Ltd (Max Prewitt, 4 June 1913). Slight rubbing to joints and extremities, very minor mostly marginal staining, blank upper margin of last leaf of first volume renewed, very good copies. Editio princeps of most of the 19 extant tragedies: four plays had been previously published at Florence c.1495, and the Electra is omitted from Aldus's edition (it was not printed until 1545). Along with the Latin classics, Dante, and Petrarch, Aldus published Greek editions of Homer and the tragedians in his new "portatile" octavo format, in which the texts, unencumbered by commentary, were designed to meet the needs of an educated but non-scholarly public. Part of the copy-text for this edition has been identified (BnF suppl. gr. 212 and 393). The manuscript is in the hand of a member of the Gregoropoulos family, possibly John Gregoropoulos, one of Aldus's editors, who is thought to have been chiefly responsible for establishing this edition. In his preface to Demetrius Chalcondylas, Aldus announces the imminent publication of the scholia to seven of the plays, but these were not printed until Giunta's edition of 1534. The Aldine edition remained the most important printed text of Euripides until the 18th century.

        DE MEMORABILIBUS MUNDI Diligenter annotatus & indicio alphabetico prenotatus.

      Parisiis, 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 ignote; e perciò l?'opera ha ancora qualche importanza. Il trattato ebbe nel Medioevo, dal V al XV sec., grande fortuna. Di Caio Giulio Solino sono ignote la patria e l?'età in cui visse. Probabilmente nacque e dimorò a Roma e fiorì verso la metà del III sec. d.C.?". Così Enciclopedia Treccani,XXXII, pp. 77-78. Esemplare ben conservato, con antica firma di appartenenza al frontesp. Rara edizione.

        Florilegium diversorum epigrammatum in septem libros, in Greek

      Venice: Aldus Manutius, November, 1503. Edited by Aldus Manutius. Aldine octavo (149 × 93 mm). 19th-century French red straight-grained morocco by Thouvenin, covers panelled with gilt fillets and blind foliate tooling, gilt spine, gilt edges, green silk marker. Collation as Ahmanson-Murphy. Woodcut device on title, repeated on final verso. Greek type 4:79 (text), roman 10:82 (title, register and colophon only). Extremities lightly rubbed, occasional very light browning at head, an excellent copy. First Aldine edition, a handsome copy. Based on the 1494 editio princeps edited by Janus Lascaris, this was the second edition of the anthology assembled by the early 14th century Constantinopolitan monk Planudes, with additions including the editio princeps of the 6th-century Byzantine poem "In Thermas Pythias et aquarum miracula" by Paulos Silentiarius. Planudes' recension of the Anthology was the only collection of ancient Greek epigrams known to the west until the discovery of the Palatine codex in 1606. The Anthology is based on the lost compilation of Meleager of Gadara (1st century BCE), whose title, The Garland, reflected the common comparison of small beautiful poems to flowers; hence the Greek anthologia ("flower-gathering"; Latin florilegium), which metaphoric use led to the modern sense of the English "anthology".

        The Flight Into Egypt

      Albrecht Durer, 1503. AN EXQUISITE WOODCUT FROM ALBRECHT DURER'S GROUNDBREAKING LIFE OF THE VIRGIN SERIES Woodcut ca. 1503 Literature: Bartsch, Le peintre graveur, 89; Meder, Dürer-Katalog, 201, after text; Troyen, Life of the Virgin This exquisite woodcut entitled, "Flight into Egypt," was originally produced for Albrecht Dürer's famed Life of the Virgin cycle. Dürer began assembling the works for the series in 1501, publishing the first complete edition of it in 1511. Life of the Virgin ultimately contained 19 woodcuts by Dürer and a Latin text supplied by Benedictus Chelidonius. The series as a whole and this woodcut in particular marvelously demonstrate Dürer's unparalleled skills as a graphic artist. Indeed, this lush work, which remains in superb condition, beautifully demonstrates Dürer's exemplary and crisp modeling skills, keen awareness of human psychology, and consummate understanding of the Italianate one-point perspective system. .

Occasional faint dampstains, but a very good copy.</p><p>First Edition of this enormously popular encyclopedic work, one of the first general reference works produced for the printed-book market. &#147;The conception of the reference work compiled from a neutral stance, for the common good, to cater to a wide range of interests, and by multiple contributors working collaboratively at one time and over time was honed in early modern Latin reference works like the Polyanthea&#148; (Blair, Too Much to Know: Managing Scholarly Information before the Modern Age [2010], p. 172). The work&#146;s compiler, Domenico Nani Mirabelli, was a rector of schools, archpriest of the cathedral in Savona, and also served as papal secretary.</p><p> The Polyanthea contains selections from the writings of over 150 authors from Aristotle to Dante, arranged in alphabetical order and covering subjects in the fields of classical antiquity, medieval history, natural history and medicine. In the preface to the work Nani Mirabelli </p><p>"boasted that he had selected the best of literature, appropriate for the moral edification of young and old and of both sexes, and desired it to &#147;be useful to as many people as possible&#148; . . . He listed 163 authors excerpted and acknowledged that some of these had mocked the Holy Scriptures and taken positions contrary to the Catholic truth. But thanks to his careful selection, Nani promised safe passage through the shoals of pagan literature&#151;both the raciness of Ovid or Horace and the obscurity of Aristotle&#151;for the moral edification of Christians . . . At the same time as he played up the religious themes, Nani identified his principal audience as young people studying rhetoric. For them especially, Nani was proud to offer definitions and descriptions; Latin translations of all Greek expressions; sentences of philosophers, historians, and poets in Latin and Greek; and a tabular outline of the larger topics. The early Polyanthea served in part as a dictionary of hard words, offering in addition to the major articles, many very short ones, with just a definition, a Greek etymology, and one or even no quotation as an example" (Blair, pp. 177-178).</p><p>The Polyanthea went through at least 41 editions between 1503 and 1681, nearly all of which were revised and expanded by their successive editors. Like other popular reference works of the early modern period, the Florilegia tended to suffer hard usage and copies of the first edition, especially in good condition, are now scarce. Blair was able to locate 20 copies of the first edition cited in online library catalogues; most of these copies are in Italy. OCLC records 10 copies, three of which (Newberry Library, Harvard and U. Chicago) are in the United States. Collinson, Encyclopedias: Their History Throughout the Ages (1964). </p>

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Frowin von Hutten").

      [Landshut (?)], [16. XII.] 1503.. 1 S. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An Graf Wilhelm IV. von Henneberg-Schleusingen betr. eines diplomatischen Auftrages, geschrieben am Vorabend des Landshuter Erbfolgekrieges mit Erwähnung der Söldnerwerbung für Herzog Albrecht IV. von Bayern: "[...] ewer gnad haben mir Hans Fuxen halb schreiben laßsen | in aller unthertenigkeit hab ich gelesen und wil den jhen schreiben mit den ich solcher bestellung halb geredt hab | daß ich mich genzlich vorsehe | sie werden ein fyrzehn dag ein beiddungen haben | wie wol ich weiß daß etlich von Herzogs Albrechts wegen umb dienst ersucht sein | die dann noch auff mein anbringen kein zu sagung gethan haben | deß halb gnediger Herr ist an ewer gnad mein underdenig fleißige bit daß ewer gnad gemelten Hans Fuxen sonderlich schreiben lasßen | weß hie zu mein meinung ist [...] | wollen ewer furstlich gnad mein schreiben gnediglich und baß bedenken [...]". - Zwei Wochen vor diesem Schreiben war Herzog Georg der Reiche von Bayern-Landshut verstorben, um dessen Erbe dann der Landshuter Erbfolgekrieg (1503 bis 05) zwischen Albrecht IV. und Ruprecht von der Pfalz entbrennen sollte; dessen Ergebnis war die Vereinigung von Ober- und Niederbayern. - Am 13. Dezember war in Landshut der noch von Georg einberufene Landtag eröffnet worden; Wilhelm von Henneberg gehörte zur pfälzischen Kriegspartei, die er auch mit eigenen Truppen unterstützte. - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt, die Adreßseite mit kleinen Siegel- und Montagespuren, insgesamt sehr wohlerhalten.

        De laudibus sanctae crucis opus [...].

      Pforzheim, Thomas Anshelm, 1503.. (7 [statt 10]), 57 (statt LIX; ohne fol. I und VIII), (1), XIV, (1) Bll. Durchgehend in rot und schwarz gedruckt. Mit 27 (statt 30) ganzseitigen, in Akrostichen angeordneten, teils figürlichen "Bildergedichten" in Holzschnitt und zahlr. roten Initialen (ohne die beiden ganzseitigen Dedikations-Holzschnitte). Flexibler Pergamentband der Zeit auf 4 durchzogenen Bünden. Folio.. Erste, von Jakob Wimpheling herausgegebene Druckausgabe der Anfang des 9. Jahrhunderts im Kloster Fulda entstandenen berühmten Bildergedichte, eine drucktechnische Meisterleistung ihrer Zeit. Zugleich einer der frühesten Pforzheimer Drucke. "Die carmina figurata sollten es nach dem Willen ihres Autors dem Leser, der ihre dunkle Botschaft zu entziffern verstand, ermöglichen, Zugang 'zur Liebe des Kreuzes' zu finden. Sie sollten zu den geheimen Beziehungen, die zwischen den Zahlen, den Monaten und den Elementen bestehen, noch die göttliche Gnade offenbaren. Die Figurationen erfüllen eine etwas zweideutige Aufgabe. Indem sie mit ihrer Form den Text in den 'Hintergrund' drängen, stellen sie den Leser auf zwei Ebenen, auf eine irdische und eine übernatürliche. In der Tat erscheint der Buchstabe durch das geschickte Spiel seiner Anordnung in einem Gitter zum erstenmal isoliert und deutet so, obwohl unfreiwillig, die Zertrümmerung des Wortes an" (Massin). - Vorderer fliegender Vorsatz mit Wurmspur, hinterer fehlt. Etwas gebräunt bzw. fleckig. Aus der Bibliothek des Geistlichen Johann Stadler aus Hall bei Innsbruck (sein eh. Besitzvermerk, dat. 1588, am Titel; sein gest. Exlibris mit eh. Besitzvermerk und Datierung 1612 am vorderen Innendeckel). Hernach, wie durch ein um 1700 angebrachtes gest. Exlibris nachgewiesen, in der Haller Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek. Der kaiserliche Protonotar Florian Waldauf (auch: Baldauf; um 1450-1510; 1495 in Antwerpen Gegenzeichner des Vorvertrags zur habsburgisch-spanischen Doppelhochzeit) und seine Frau Barbara hatten 1501 der Pfarrkirche in Hall eine Marienkapelle, eine Reliquiensammlung und ein Predigtamt gestiftet. Die Stadt Hall als Verwalterin der Waldauf-Stiftung hatte dafür zu sorgen, "das alle jar etliche puecher nach anzaigen des predigers zum predigambt gekauft und in der heiligen capellen liberei an ketten gehangen und versorgt werden"; ferner sollten der Bibliothek Bücher aus den Nachlässen der Prediger und Meßkapläne zukommen. Entgegen der Anordnung Waldaufs wurde die Bibliothek kaum durch gezielte Ankäufe vermehrt, sondern größtenteils durch die zufällige Übernahme von Büchern und Schenkungen, hauptsächlich von Geistlichen, Stiften und Schülern. Der bekannteste Vorbesitzer ist Johannes Eck. "Nach 400 Jahren ihres Bestehens und nur fallweisem Zuwachs schien das Interesse am Fortbestand der Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek als geschlossener Sammlung verlorenzugehen. Obendrein war das Stiftungsvermögen im Ersten Weltkrieg vollends untergegangen. Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde eine unbekannte Anzahl wertvoller Handschriften und Drucke an Privatpersonen in Hall und Umgebung ausgehändigt, um sie vor der Beschlagnahmung durch die Nationalsozialisten zu sichern. Nach Kriegsende wurde jedoch keines dieser Bücher rückerstattet" (Hdb. der hist. Buchbestände in Dtl.). - VD 16, H 5271. BM-STC German 420. Adams R 3. Fairfax Murray 350. Panzer VIII, 227, 2.

        TEXT FROM CHAPTERS 457-61

      Italy, ca. early, 1300. Hardcover. From the Principal Medieval TextOn the Medicinal Properties of Natural Substances. 292 x 394 mm (11 1/2 x 15 1/2"). Double column, 55 lines in a rounded gothic script. Rubrics in red, paragraph marks in red and blue, four two-line initials in red or blue with contrasting penwork. Recovered from a binding, so with one side rubbed and quite browned (perhaps half the script on one of the four pages illegible), the bifolium bisected horizontally (with loss of one line of text) and reattached with four small pieces of clear tape, some significant stains and perhaps half a dozen tiny wormholes, but still a useful specimen of a desirable text, the lines on three of the four pages generally very legible. This leaf comes from the principal Medieval text on the medicinal properties of natural substances, commonly attributed to Serapion, but probably by Ali Ibn al-Husain Ibn al-Wafid, an 11th century pharmacologist and physician from Toledo known in Latin as Abenguefit. Our author was said to have extracted more than 500 medicinal substances from various plants. Present here in the translation of Simon of Genoa and Abraham the Jew of Tortosa, "De Medicamentis Simplicibus" was printed more than 50 times in Latin. Our text is from chapters 457 (on milk and butter), 458 (on dried meat), 459 (on animal skin), 460 (on bone marrow), and 461 (on lard and fat), corresponding to folios 165v-167r of the Venice edition of 1503.

        DE MEMORABILIBUS MUNDI. Diligenter annotatus & indicio alphabetico prenotatus.

      Iehan Petit (1503). In-16 gr. (mm. 197x135), cartoncino rustico mod., 4 ccnn. (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 ignote; e perciò l?opera ha ancora qualche importanza. Il trattato ebbe nel Medioevo, dal V al XV sec., grande fortuna. Di Caio Giulio Solino sono ignote la patria e l?età in cui visse. Probabilmente nacque e dimorò a Roma e fiorì verso la metà del III sec. d.C.?. Così Enciclopedia Treccani,XXXII, pp. 77-78. Esemplare ben conservato, con antica firma di appartenenza al frontesp. Rara edizione.

      ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM in Latin and French, French Flanders, Tournai or Lille, dated 1503, 150 x 107 mm., 177 ff., (collation: i4 ii-iii6 iv9 (8+1, 1, a singleton) v7 [6+1, 1, a singleton], vi2 vii9 [8+1, 1, a singleton] viii9 [8+1, 5, a singleton] ix8 x11 [10+1, 1, a singleton] xi2 xii-xiii8 xiv2 xv8 [-1 and 2, + 1, with current 6 a singleton] xvi9 [8+1, 2, a singleton] xvii6 xviii10 xix-xx6 xxi-xxii8 xxiii5 [6-1, missing 1, likely cancelled, no loss text] xxiv-xxv8 xxvi4), written in a littera cursiva in 3 hands, ff. 5-157, by Jean Markant who signed the colophon on f. 157, illustrations (donor&#39;s portraits), ff. 2 and 4, are the work of another, unidentified, artist, FIFTEEN LARGE (12 full-page, 3 half-page) and FIVE SMALL MNIATURES, folios facing the miniatures with marginal decoration, two and four-line initials (acanthus-like and painted on a golden background), liquid gold one-line initials on colored grounds, larger miniatures with Ghent/Bruges border decoration.

TEXT: Of capital importance for the history of miniature painting in the region of Lille and Tournai, this is the very manuscript around which the career of its artist-scribe, Jean Markant, is reconstructed. Considered lost, the reappearance of this manuscript known as the Le Sauvage Hours, signed and dated by colophon and with portraits and coats of arms of the donors, prompts a reconsideration of the artist and his place in the evolution of manuscript illumination in the southern Low Countries at the beginning of the sixteenth century.

        Tabule Astronomice Elisabeth Regine

      Large printer&#39;s mark, printed in red & black on verso of final leaf. Two parts in one vol. [52] leaves (incl. the blank B8). Small 4to, early 19th cent. calf, triple gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red & green leather lettering pieces on spine, a.e.g. Venice: Petrus Liechtenstein, 1503. First edition of this rare set of astronomical tables which were prepared for Isabella I (1451-1504), the Queen of Castile and Aragon. The book is divided into two parts: the first includes a dedication to Isabella and Ferdinand (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&#39; first draft of his planetary theory, which remained unpublished until the late 19th century, he refers to the length of the year. Copernicus mentions the values given by four astronomers: three of whom are well-known predecessors, Hipparchus, Ptolemy, and al-Battani. The fourth was referred to as "Hispalensis." Thanks to the researches of L. Birkenmajer in the early 20th century, "Hispalensis" has been identified as Alfonso de Córdoba, a contemporary of Copernicus. He was a Spanish astronomer, a doctor of arts and medicine, and probably born in 1458 in Seville. In the beginning of the 16th century, Alfonso de Córdoba lived in Rome and was employed by the powerful Borgia family, serving as physician to Cardinal Cesar Borgia (1475-1507) and was also working for Cesar&#39;s father, Rodrigo Borgia (1431-1503), who was Pope Alexander VI. Copernicus spent most of the period from 1496 to 1503 in Italy, and it is likely that he was aware of publications on astronomy that appeared at the time. Apart from the present book, Alfonso edited the 1502 edition of the Almanach Perpetuum by Abraham Zacut (1452-1515), the most celebrated astronomer in the Iberian Peninsula of his time, and a short treatise in Latin on an instrument for determining the positions of the planets. This treatise is entitled Lumen caeli, sive Expositio instrumenti astronomici a se excogitati (Rome: J. Besicken, 28 May 1498). "As was true for almost all European astronomers at the time, Alfonso de Córdoba faithfully adhered to the Alfonsine Tables and followed a tradition in the framework of Ptolemy&#39;s astronomy to the point that several of his tables are taken, whether directly or not, from Ptolemy&#39;s Almagest. Among the material used by Alfonso de Córdoba we have identified the editio princeps (1483) of the Alfonsine Tables... "However, Alfonso de Córdoba did not limit himself to reproducing the tables in the 1483 edition adapting them for the time of Queen Isabella, for there are significant changes in presentation; indeed, several of his tables have very different formats from the standard ones, indicating that he had real insights into astronomy and was able to compute competently using tables. Moreover, he constructed some tables adapted to the latitude of his city, Seville, and this bears witness to his considerable computational skill. In fact, Alfonso de Córdoba&#39;s Tabule astronomice Elisabeth Regine may be regarded as another form of presenting the Alfonsine Tables without departing from its underlying astronomical content... "The analysis of Tabule astronomice Elisabeth Regine shows that they cannot simply be reduced to a mere example of flattery, and that Alfonso de Córdoba produced astronomy at a level similar to that of the best astronomers of his time. This is probably why his tables were used by astronomers in the 1520s, notably, an unnamed author whose work is preserved in Vienna, MS 5303, and Nicholas Copernicus."-José Chabas, "Astronomy for the Court in the Early Sixteenth Century. Alfonso de Córdoba and his Tabule Astronomice Elisabeth Regine" in Archive for History of Exact Sciences, Vol. 58, No. 3 (2004), pp. 183-217-(& see the entire article for a detailed description of the book, its contents, and importance).

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. Sander I, 2170. Adams C-2632. Mortimer, Harvard, 137.

        Liber Phisionomie. - (Colophon:)

      Venezia, Sessa, 1503.In-4. Bella legatura coeva in pelle impressa a secco, dorso e margini restaurati. Marca tipografica sul frontespizio sotto una grande vignetta, due graziose iniziali e una diversa marca tipografica in fine. (32) ff.; i fogli nel quaderno C posposti; buon esemplare, accuratamente rinfrescato. Rara edizione del fortunato e importante trattato medico (prima ediz.: 1477). E? l?unico testo sicuramente attribuibile allo Scoto, uno dei maggiori eruditi del ?200 che, dopo aver studiato a Oxford, Parigi e Toledo, si trasferì in Sicilia alla corte di Federico II di cui divenne il consigliere scientifico. L?opera, forse scritta come dono di nozze per l?imperatore, è divisa in tre parti: la prima tratta la generazione, con informazioni di anatomia, fisiologia, e ostetricia; la seconda esamina i segni del carattere; la terza si occupa di fisionomia e include uno studio del corpo umano, dai capelli ai piedi, inclusi i denti. Cf. DSB IX, 361 e Thorndike II, 307-337. Essling, 1597, Sander, 6908 e Durling, 4163 citano un?edizione di Sessa del 1508 con le stesse silografie; non in BL STC, Adams, Wellcome, Waller, etc. Very rare edition of a noteworthy book in the history of science (first edn.: 1477). It is the only treatise which can be definitely ascribed to the Scottish philosopher, alchemist and astrologer. He was one of the great scholars of the 13th century and scientific adviser to Emperor Frederick II. The first section contains a detailed treatise on the process of generation with anatomical and physiological information on obstetrics and sexual behaviour. Books II and III contain the Physionomia proper, the signs of complexion and the meaning of every detail of the human body, from hair to feet, including the teeth. Large woodcut on title, 2 woodcut initials and printer's device at beginning and end. Neatly washed and leaves in quire C misbound but an attractive copy bound in contemp. blind-stamped calf, rebacked and extremities repaired.

        [Title in Greek] ... EURIPIDIS TRAG&#140;DIÆ SEPTENDECIM, EX QUIB QUÆDAM HABENT COMMENTARIA

      Venetiis: Apvd Aldvm, February 1503.. Two volumes bound in one. [268;190] leaves. Thick octavo (165 x 98 mm). Full red morocco, spine heavily gilt extra, gilt Aldine anchor device on each board, a.e.g. (unsigned). Italic (preface) and Greek letter. Aldine anchor device at end of each volume. Small shallow discoloration at extreme lower edge of 11 leaves in the second volume, occasional traces of foxing, minor rubbing at crown of spine, otherwise about fine. Cloth slipcase and chemise. First collected edition of the Greek texts of the tragedies of Euripides, preceded only by an edition of four of the plays printed in Florence in 1496. Although the title lists seventeen plays, Aldus added an eighteenth, the HERCULES FURENS, and in his prefatory dedication to Demetrius Chalcondylas, a distinguished professor of Greek at Padua, Aldus indicates the edition consisted of one thousand copies. Euripides was the last of the trio of great classic Greek tragedians, and although he is known to have written a significantly larger body of plays than are preserved here, many of the others are known only through incomplete fragments. The other titles included here include some of the masterpieces of classic drama, including MEDEA, HECUBA, ORESTES, IPHIGENIA IN TAURUS, ALECESTE, BACCHAE, etc. With the bookplates of Arthur Atherley and George Warren Vernon. "...recherchée, et les beaux exemplaires se trouvent difficilement" - Brunet. A small number of copies were printed on vellum. BM (ITALIAN), P.239. RENOUARD 43:10. GOLDSMID 63. ADAMS E1030. BRUNET II:1095.
