      Oc ær wæl offuer seeth och rættelighe corrigeret. Köpenhamn, G. aff Gemen, 1505. 4:o. A6-Q6,R5 = (101) blad. Med träsnittsvinjetter på titelbladets båda sidor och på sista sidan samt målade initialer i rött i texten. Trevligt lätt nött hfrbd från 1700-talets andra hälft med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad rygg och röd titeletikett. Röda snitt. Försättsbladet saknas. Spridda fläckar och delvis med fuktränder, främst i marginalen. Delvis lite snävt skuren i övre marginalen. Titelbladet nära skuret och utbättrat i marginalerna i samband med bindningen. Lagning i nedre marginalen på blad I6. Det avslutande bladet ganska solkigt. Ett fåtal gamla marginaltillägg i bläck, främst på blad L6 och R2. Med Terkel Klevenfeldts namnteckning och krönt ryggexlibris "W. I." samt Ericsbergs biblioteks exlibris.. Nielsen 134. Thesaurus 170. Boktryckare Ghemens ej officiellt sanktionerade utgåva av Skånelagen är en av de äldsta tryckta lagutgåvorna i Norden och den första för Skåne. Boken har med sin fina typografi och handmålade initialer kvar känslan från de medeltida laghandskrifterna. Dansken Terkel Klevenfeldt (1710-77) var genealog och samlare av historiskt material, inte minst sådant med språkinriktning. "Dansk biografiskt lexikon" påtalar att han var en utpräglad samlarnatur och att han som sådan hade avsevärda svårigheter att få någonting själv ur händerna, vilket kom att förbittra hans ålderdom. Hans böcker och manuskript såldes på auktion efter tryckt katalog

        Platinae hystoria de vitis pontificum periucundae diligeter recognita: & nunc tantum integer impressa

      8vo. Dated Oct. 1505. ff. ccclii, [4], ff. [127]. With pictorial woodcut on the title page portraying the author writing his book in front of a group of past popes. 33 lines per page text with decorative initials. Lacking two blank leaves [vv7, 8]. Colophons on verso of vv2 and on Q8. Bound in 18th-19th century brown morocco over wooden boards (done after early 16th century style). Some rubbing to extremities. Pages are generally clean and crisp; occasional early marginal notation; name written in miniscule old hand in upper margin of title page. Title is printed in small letters on the fore-edge of the text block (in a very early hand). Bartolomeo Platina originally named Sacchi (1421-1481) Italian scholar who eventually became the first Prefect of the Vatican Library. Earlier, during the reforms of Pope Paul II, Platina and many other scholars lost their positions in the Roman College. Platina led a large outcry of protest. As a result he was imprisoned on two occasions. The second time he and twenty other humanists were arrested and tortured on suspicion of heresy and of conspiring against the life of the Pope. The charges were eventually dropped. His situation improved under Pope Sixtus IV. In 1475 Platina was appointed the first prefect of the newly founded Vatican Library. Sixtus IV also commissioned him to write a history of the popes. Platina’s “De Vitis pontificum” (first printed in Venice, 1479) however, is not pure hagiography. He portrays his enemy Paul II as a tyrant. He occasionally records pieces of lore which do not always place the Church in the best light. A brief history of the legendary female pontiff “Pope Joan” can be found under John VIII (Ioannes VIII). The Catholic Encyclopedia says” his "Lives of the Popes" is a work of no small merit, for it is the first systematic handbook of papal history.” Francis Regnault, the printer of this 1505 edition, was Royal Printer to Francis I. [Adams P-1413, BM STC French, p. 388; Potthast, Wegweiser, p. 931; Graesse V, p.312 – in note to listing of 1504 edition].

        Polydori Vergilii,... de Inventoribus rerum libri tres, operosissima nuper cura emendati et severiore lima... expoliti

      Paris: Jean Petit, 1505. Hard Cover. Quarto (20cm); 61, [3] leaves, last blank. Petit's leopard-and-lion device on title page. Woodcut frontispiece on verso of title page. Roman type; side notes. Bound in 18th- (or 19th-) century polished calf, triple-ruled at borders, rebacked in 20th century in period style, worn at edged and extremities. Marbled endleaves. Early marginal notes, with ownership inscription in same hand at colophon; 18th- (or 19th-) century bookplate of British bibliophile William Bolland (1771-1840). References: Moreau, I, 189; Ferguson, "Hand List of Editions of ... De inventoribus rerum," 4. First appearance of De inventoribus rerum with an illustration. The frontispiece is a direct antecedent of Albrecht Dürer's 1514 masterpiece, Melencolia I. A lone male figure at a lectern, surrounded by books and writing implements (including a tooled-leather cylindrical writing case), turns away from his desk and leans despondently upon his hand, the weight of his head actually shown to stretch the flesh of his right cheek. & & Dürer will flip the image, so that the figure leans on the left arm instead of the right, but effectively the pose does not change. Albrecht Dürer was a much greater artist than the craftsperson who carved the woodblock. Nevertheless, Melencolia I is clearly a visual and iconographical descendent of the woodcut. & & Of the early editions of De inventoribus rerum, this first illustrated edition is among the rarest. The Herzog August Bibliothek at Wolfenbüttel has accomplished an extensive census of early editions of this title in German libraries. In the century between the first edition of 1499 and the German translation of 1603, the Herzog August census counts 84 editions in a variety of languages, surviving in 479 copies in German libraries. Of those 479 copies, there is one single copy only of the Jean Petit 1505 imprint. The project also notes that no other Latin edition of the work has an independent illustration.

        I Aurelius Augurellus [Iambicus, Sermonum, Carminum libri]

      Venice: Aldus Manutius, 1505. Boards. Octavo (16cm); [128] leaves, including blank second and penultimate leaves, and last leaf with Aldine device on verso. Bound in 18th-century 1/2 mottled calf over mottled paper-covered boards, with red leather lettering piece. Modern owner's bookplate. Scattered light foxing, faint soiling on title. References: Renouard, page 49 #2 ("edition belle et rare"); Adams A-2152; Ahmanson-Murphy 73; Kallendorf-Wells 81; Edit.16 I-3340; IA 110036. Recognized in his day as one of the most cultivated humanists of his generation, Augurelli has fallen into near total obscurity. Standard Internet sources merely repeat each other's superficialities and factual errors. I found better information in 18th-century literary historians (Tiraboschi, Rambaldo degli Azzoni), and Roberto Weiss's 1962 article in the Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani. Born in Rimini, the 19-year-old Augurelli went to Florence, where he knew Poliziano and was close with Ficino. Ultimately, his mentor there was Bernardo Bembo, and his fellow student was Bernardo's son, Pietro Bembo. In his early 20s, Augurelli (with the Bembos) went to Padua to study law, but continued to excel in studia humanitatis, He studied Petrarch under Gian Giorgio Trissino, who praised him in print for being the first to make a rigorous linguistic analysis of Petrarch's language (a project later carried to perfection by Pietro Bembo). He published his first book of Latin poems to much acclaim in 1491, including quite personal poems about his friends, his life, his relationship with the Bembos and with his boss the Bishop of Treviso. In the succeeding years, Augurelli ascended the chair of Humanities at Treviso and continued to write excellent poetry in Latin. Aldus Manutius approached him in 1504, and the much augmented book of poems was published the following year. It includes verse directed to patrons, friends, and social contacts. Weiss calls it "elegant, demonstrating a mastery of the language and ease of versification...." The book also includes a small poem about alchemy. Ten years later, this poem would be published in an expanded version that would, I think, seal the author's obscurity. Contemporary tastemakers such as Paolo Giovio and, later, Julius Caesar Scaliger, publicly hated the poem on the art of making gold. Giovio said Augurelli "went crazy" and was "lost in pursuit of alchemy." The text of the poem itself, however, protests that it is just a fiction, a game. This is, in any case, the only Aldine edition of an elegant and effectively unrecovered text of Neo-Latin lyrics by one of the movement's principal practitioners.
