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.

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?

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."

Contemporary blindstamped calf over wooden boards. Extremely rare printing of the laws and statutes of Nuremberg, compiled in 1479 and the first of any city to be printed, constituting "the most important and most influential" such collection of its era (cf.

The fine woodcut by an anonymous Nuremberg artist is based on that of the first edition attributed to Michael Wolgemuth, the teacher of Dürer. The final chapter transcribes in its entirety the form of Jewish oath used in the medieval Nuremberg court. - A few early annotations to the title page; stamp removed from second leaf.

[Early English Printing]; Arnold Richard (d. c. 1521)
Adrian van Berghen, 1503. VERY RARE, known in only five institutional holdings (Huntington, Library of Congress, British Library, Pierpont Morgan (imperfect), and Pforzheimer Collection at Harry Ransom Center). A private copy, imperfect (lacking 7 leaves, none supplied in facsimile), sold at auction (Christies) in 2000. The last Arnold's Chronicle to appear at auction prior to that was in 1918, when William Morris' copy was sold, and which later became the Huntington copy mentioned above. Small folio (236 x 185mm), in 19th century full calf, sympathetically recornered and rebacked, preserving the original spine which is titled in gilt on a morocco label and tooled in blind between raised bands. Ex libris of the bibliographer E. F. Bosanquet to recto of front free endpaper. Ideal collation is A4, 2A8, B4, C-E8, F-Q6, R8, S-V6=132 leaves; the present copy lacking the 12 leaves of preliminary tables, G1, and the last 12 leaves of indexes, thus in all 23 text leaves lacking and two blanks, the text leaves now included in facsimile. RARE IN ANY CONDITION, the present copy quite well preserved. The binding sound and sturdy with some expected signs of use and age, unobtrusive notations in ink and pencil to endpapers, the text quite good with only general toning, some marginal damp staining and other minor scattered soiling, inner tail margins of first few gatherings bleached, three leaves cut close at the top margin, touching the text, burnhole to F1, touching two words recto and three verso, mend to outer head corner of S2, affecting two or three words recto and verso, leaves S6- … [Click Below for Full Description]

A5, G2 et O4, manque dans le coin inférieur du f. G5, restauration marginale au f° O2, trou de vers avec qqs atteintes au texte aux 2 derniers feuillets. 6 ff.n.ch., 156 ff. (mal ch. CLVIII), en caractères romains. Fairfax-Murray, German, 407. Adams, T-304. Belle édition illustrée des comédies de Térence avec les commentaires d'Aelius Donatus et de Calphurnius. Sortie des presses du célèbre et prolifique imprimeur-éditeur strasbourgeois Johann Reinhard, dit Grüninger, elle est remarquablement illustrée de 7 grands bois à pleine page (dont la célèbre représentation d'un théâtre au titre), et de 142 bois dans le texte. Il s'agit d'une édition scolaire, avec les commentaires en petits caractères encadrant le texte de Térence interligné pour que l'étudiant puisse ajouter des notes de sa main. C'est ce qui s'est passé dans le présent exemplaire pour l'Heautontimorumenos aux ff. LXV à LXXVII: un étudiant germanique a abondamment annoté à l'époque le texte de cette comédie avec les indications du professeur et a colorié les gravures sur bois. Il a indiqué son nom au colophon: « Ex libris Stephani Louice ( ?) ». L'ouvrage, dans sa reliure d'origine restaurée, a été ensuite acheté en 1583 par les Chartreux du Mont-Dieu (dans les Ardennes).

Venezia, Ioannes de Cereto de Tridino alias Tacuinus, 1503. - 4°, circa 20,5 x 15,5 cm. 68 ff. Neuerer Pappband mit Inkunabelpapierbezug "CNCE 34383; STC 720; Graesse VI, 283. Frühe, wohl dritte Ausgabe dieses seltenen Jugendwerkes von dem italienischen Humanisten Polidoro Vergilio aus Urbino, der etwa 50 Jahre seines Lebens in England verbrachte. Bekannt wurde er für sein enzyklopädisches Werk ?De rerum inventoribus?, das in der Mitte des 16.Jahrhunderts in denIndex verbotener Bücher aufgenommen wurde; spätere Ausgaben mussten in katholischen Ländern expurgiert werden und auch die vorliegende Sprichwortsammlung enthält verschiedene nicht ganz jugendfreie Sprüche mit Erklärungen, wie etwa: ?Hic corvus est. quoniam corvi ore coire dicuntur? Das Werk ist ein Vorläufer und in gewisser Weise auch ein Konkurrenzwerk zu der ganz ähnlichen Sammlung des Erasmus. In späteren Ausgaben wurde es dann auch tatsächlich unter dem Titel "Adagia" veröffentlcht und war der Anlass zu einer kleinen literarischen Fehde der beiden Humanisten darüber, wer wem zuvorgekommen sei. Die Freundschaft zwischen Polidoro und Erasmus blieb darüber jedoch bestehen und ist in mehreren Briefen dokumentiert.

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.

A5, G2 et O4, manque dans le coin inférieur du f. G5, restauration marginale au f° O2, trou de vers avec qqs atteintes au texte aux 2 derniers feuillets. 6 ff.n.ch., 156 ff. (mal ch. CLVIII), en caractères romains. Fairfax-Murray, German, 407. Adams, T-304. Belle édition illustrée des comédies de Térence avec les commentaires d'Aelius Donatus et de Calphurnius. Sortie des presses du célèbre et prolifique imprimeur-éditeur strasbourgeois Johann Reinhard, dit Grüninger, elle est remarquablement illustrée de 7 grands bois à pleine page (dont la célèbre représentation d'un théâtre au titre), et de 142 bois dans le texte. Il s'agit d'une édition scolaire, avec les commentaires en petits caractères encadrant le texte de Térence interligné pour que l'étudiant puisse ajouter des notes de sa main. C'est ce qui s'est passé dans le présent exemplaire pour l'Heautontimorumenos aux ff. LXV à LXXVII: un étudiant germanique a abondamment annoté à l'époque le texte de cette comédie avec les indications du professeur et a colorié les gravures sur bois. Il a indiqué son nom au colophon: « Ex libris Stephani Louice ( ?) ». L'ouvrage, dans sa reliure d'origine restaurée, a été ensuite acheté en 1583 par les Chartreux du Mont-Dieu (dans les Ardennes).

PETRARQUE (F.)
Venise, Albertino da Lissona Vercellese, Venise, Albertino da Lissona Vercellese26 Septembre 1503 ; 2 parties en 1 volume in-folio, ais de bois recouverts de maroquin brun estampés à froid de quatre encadrements de triples filets et décors floraux, restes de fermoirs en cuivre ciselé. (Reliure de l'époque). 115 ff. numérotés 116, le feuillet 66 manque, 10 ff. n. ch. (table et prologue), 128 ff. ch. - Grand portrait sur le titre et 6 bois gravés à pleine page in-texte à la seconde partie."Édition intéressante, faite avec beaucoup plus de soin que toutes les autres" dit Marsand. Le principal attrait de cette édition réside dans la gravure de la page de titre qui paraît ici pour la première fois. Essling 83 la décrit longuement en la comparant au titre de l'Ovide paru chez Sessa en 1502. Il attribue ces deux gravures au même artiste, probablement florentin, qui travailla surtout pour l'imprimeur Sessa dans les premières années du XVIe siècle et qui mérite une mention spéciale parmi les illustrateurs des ouvrages produits à Venise à la même époque. Il s'agit très certainement d'un portrait de Petrarque quoique Marsand, qui la donne bien comme un portrait de l'auteur dans l'édition de 1820 du Biblioteca, change d'avis sans donner d'explication dans l'édition de 1826 et donne ce portrait comme une représentation de Saint Albertino bénissant Florence. Hortis et Essling s'étonnent de ce changement, car la couronne de lauriers coiffant le personnage désigne plus le poète que le Saint.La seconde partie est ornée de 6 grands bois à pleine page pour pour illustrer les Triomphes.

Testo su due colonne. Tracce di minimo restauro cartaceo al primo frontespizio, per il resto esemplare genuino. Due ex libris applicati al foglio di guardia anteriore. Due parti in unico volume dell'opera principale del frate domenicano Antonino Pierozzi (Firenze, 1389-1459), meglio conosciuto come S. Antonino da Firenze. Figlio di un notaio fiorentino e discepolo del cardinale Giovanni Dominici, fu Priore di San Marco, e fu lui a commissionare al Beato Angelico i sontuosi affreschi che ancora oggi si possono ammirare nel convento fiorentino. Nominato Arcivescovo di Firenze nel 1445, fuggì in Maremma e, ricondotto a forza in città, vi fece ingresso a piedi nudi in segno di umiltà. Fondatore della prima biblioteca pubblica d'Europa, fu strenuo difensore delle istituzioni repubblicane contro le mire accentratrici di Cosimo dei Medici. Lasciò varie opere, che attestano la sua posizione preminente nella vita religiosa del XV secolo. La "Summa Theologica" si compone di quattro parti e vide la luce la prima volta a Norimberga per i tipi … [Click Below for Full Description]

EURIPIDES.
Venetiis, apud Aldum, mense Februario M.D.III (1503), manca il fascicolo X di 4 ff del vol.I. 2 volumi in 1 tomo in-8, ff. 264 (su 268, mancando il fascicolo [X] di 4 ff. posto come ultimo fascicolo della prima parte) + 190 n.n., (conservati 5 ff. bianchi), legatura di inizio novecento in vitello con elaborate bordure in oro e fregio centrale che copia "Apollo e Pegaso". Impressi interamente in greco, con ancora aldina al verso dell'ultimo foglio. Il primo foglio contiene il titolo (in greco e in latino) e l'elenco delle tragedie, e, al verso la dedica di Aldo a Demetrio Chalcondylas; gli ultimi 4 ff. del vol.I e gli ultimi 3 del vol.II contengono registro, colophon, privilegio ed áncora. Editio princeps delle opere del grande tragediografo greco (V secolo a.C.) il quale influenzò tutta la produzione tragica latina, cristiana ed italiana, sino a Racine: l'edizione comprende in realtà 18 tragedie, poichè l' "Hercules Furens" fu reperita da Aldo durante l'impressione del secondo volume, e non figura nel titolo; 4 di queste tragedie (Medea, Hippolytus, Alcestis e Andromaca) erano già state pubblicate a Firenze da Alopa verso il 1496. Edizione di grande eleganza, importanza filologica e rarità. Impressa nel piccolo minuscolo corsivo greco, con molti spazi bianchi nell'impaginazione, data la brevità di alcuni versi, è stimata tra le più aggraziate delle edizioni greche di Aldo. Bell'esemplare, purtroppo con mancanza, con alcuni fogli ancora chiusi.. RENOUARD p. 43-44, n.10: "Première et rare édition d"Euripide". DIBDIN, GREEKS e LATIN CLASSICS, p. 524-25: " This is an Aldine pub … [Click Below for Full Description]
