[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.

A VELLUM MANUSCRIPT CONTINUOUS BIFOLIUM FROM PSEUDO-SERAPION THE YOUNGER'S "AGGREGATUS IN MEDICINIS SIMPLICIBUS."
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.

SOLINUS Caius Julius
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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.

Francesco Silva, Savona, 1503. Nani Mirabelli, Domenico (ca. 1455 - after 1528). Polyanthea opus suavissimis floribus exornatum . . . Folio. [12], CCCXXXIX, [1]ff. Title-page and dedication printed in red. Hand-colored woodcut on first leaf of text showing the author surrounded by important religious and secular figures; decorative initials, the first printed in red and hand-illuminated; rubrication and flourishes through leaf LXXX. Savona: Francesco Silva, 1503. 297 x 207 mm. 19th century full vellum gilt, all edges gilt, front cover a bit warped. Occasional faint dampstains, but a very good copy. First Edition of this enormously popular encyclopedic work, one of the first general reference works produced for the printed-book market. "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" (Blair, Too Much to Know: Managing Scholarly Information before the Modern Age [2010], p. 172). The work's compiler, Domenico Nani Mirabelli, was a rector of schools, archpriest of the cathedral in Savona, and also served as papal secretary. 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.

Euripides
Venetiis: Apvd Aldvm, 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.

(GREEK ANTHOLOGY.)
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".

CÓRDOBA, Alfonso de
Large printer'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' 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's father, Rodrigo Borgia (1431-150 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sessa, 1503. 32 ff. with elaborate woodcut on title, woodcut initials and diagrams throughout.  Bound in later marbled paper over boards.  Title and first 3 leaves stained at outer margin, scattered light waterstaining, cropped at top margin affecting running head and foliation, a handful of leaves reinforced in the gutter, repaired tear on ff. 30-31 not affecting legibility. Printed on exceptionally heavy paper; overall very good. First published Latin edition of De Mensura Circuli and De Quadratura Parabolae, containing Archimedes’ application of the method of exhaustion (the early form of integration) and the earliest theoretical calculation of Ï€; apart from Valla’s excerpts of 1501 in his encyclopedia, the first printed Latin texts of Archimedes (Rose, p. 50). The brief treatise On the Measurement of the Circle contains "one of the most popular results of [Archimedes’s] mathematical investigations" (Dijsterhuis, p. 222).  Archimedes calculated the ratio between the circumference and the diameter of a circle (not called Ï€ until early modern times) as being less than 3-1/7 and greater than 3-10/71. The average of these two bounds is 3.1418, an error of about 0.0002. Archimedes obtained his sophisticated estimate for Ï€ by circumscribing and inscribing a circle with regular polygons having 96 sides. "In the course of this proof [of Ï€] Archimedes showed that he had an accurate method of approximating the roots of large numbers.  It is also of interest that he there gave an approximation for √3, namely 1351/780 > √3 > 265/153.  How he … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dürer, Albrecht (1471-1528)
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. . Book.
