(ALDINE IMPRINT). PONTANUS, JOANNES JOVIANUS
Venice: Aldus Manutius, 1505. FIRST EDITION y. This is an especially crisp copy of the first printing of Pontano's poetic works, handsomely set in Aldine italic type. Rivaled only by Poliziano as a Latinist, Pontano (1426-1503) is often called the most elegant and fertile writer of the 15th century. A greatly trusted and respected figure in his time, he had a distinguished career--apart from his literary achievements--in the service of the Aragonese rulers of Naples as a soldier, historian, mediator, royal secretary, and head of the academy formed by Alfonso. But it is his philosophical works and his poetry for which Pontano is justly famous. His collected philosophical works were first published in 1501 by Vercellensis, and are notable for their elegant and natural style and for their freedom from bias. Our volume contains the first collection of his poetry, which has a wide range, from "Urania" (hexameters on astrology) to "Lepidina" (a mythological account of the marriage of the god Sebeto to the nymph Parthenope) to personal lyrics and elegies. In addition to those works, our volume contains "Meteorum," "De Hortis hesperidum," "Meliseus," "Mæon," "Acon," "Hendecasyllaborum," "Tumulorum," "Neniæ," and "Epigrammata." Pontano writes as if Latin were his native language and graceful, harmonious verse his natural means of expression. His most attractive poems are often those expressing the intimate joys and sorrows of family life, perhaps because of his own devotion to his wife and children. Pontano had first sent some of his poems to Aldus in 1502. The publisher was enthus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Renouard, p. 46; Ahmanson-Murphy 75. First three and final two gatherings with dampstain along inner margin (not affecting text), trivial soiling to vellum, a few insignificant smudges and rust spots, otherwise a very fresh, clean copy with ample margins, and in a bright and solid binding.

Alfonso D'Este
Il Bulino. New. Hardcover. <p>Illuminated manuscript on parchment, dated between 1505 and 1510, 17 × 26 cm, made up of 199 folios. The first 12 are dedicated to the calendar, 29 completely illuminated, with border, coat-of-arms, text and initials, 10 show small illuminations, while all the text, in lower-case Gothic script with regular characters, is decorated with gold initials. The 14 folios detached from the original codex and now kept in Zagreb are without the external border but have illuminated framed boxes in the centre. The binding is based on that of the Lisbon fragment, in Russian calfskin with gold frames on the sides and spine, dating back to the 18th century. </p><p>Alfonso I d’Este’s Book of HoursThis codex, known as ‘the last really extraordinary creation of the Ferrarese illuminators’, was commissioned by Duke Alfonso I to Matteo da Milano. It belonged to the Modena Library until 1859, when it was taken away by the Estense – along with the Bible of Borso and the Breviary of Ercole d’Este, which together made up a trilogy of illuminated masterpieces of the highest excellence – and conserved as patrimony of the House of Austria-Este in exile in Vienna. The body of the manuscript, without the 14 detached illuminations of Zagreb, was bought by the Armenian collector Gulbenkian for his Foundation, now in Lisbon.   </p> .

Vergilio, Polidoro (a.k.a. Polydore Vergil, Polydorus Vergilius Urbinas)
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 Germa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Augurelli, Giovanni Aurelio (Augurellus, 1456-1514)
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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARTIAL (or MARTIALIS, Marcus Valerius)
Woodcut publisher's device on title. 158 numbered leaves, one unnumbered leaf, one blank leaf. Folio (305 x 205 mm.), fine cont. Milanese binding of blind-stamped calf (minor worming, ends of spine a bit worn), sides panelled in blind with elaborate knotwork stamping, ties gone. [Milano: J.A. Scinzenzeler] for Joannes Jacobus & Bros. Legnano, [20 February 1505]. A handsome and rare edition in a most attractive contemporary Milanese blind-stamped binding of the epigrams of Martial (born ca. 38/41-d. 102 A.D.), the Roman author whose poetry "embraces the whole range of the life of a man about town. From this point of view their value to the student of Roman life and manners is inestimable. They bear witness alike to the nobler aspects of that life and to the more ignoble."-Encyc. Brit. Many of his epigrams are obscene and written to titillate. The epigrams are accompanied by the extensive commentaries of Domizio Calderini (1447-78), and Giorgio Merula (ca. 1430/1-94). Calderini, part of the circle of humanists whose center was the Greek Cardinal Bessarion, also wrote commentaries on Juvenal, Ovid, Ptolemy, Virgil, and other classical authors. Merula taught in Milan and was responsible for several editions of Latin authors as well as commentaries on such authors as Cicero, Juvenal, Martial, Virgil, and Pliny. This is a most handsome book, finely printed in Roman type. The printer, Johann Angelus Scinzenzeler, was active in Milan from 1501 to 1526 and printed extensively for the Legnano brothers. A crisp and tall copy with many lower edges uncut. Early ownership inscription … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hesse, Johannes Witte de:
Paris: Robert Gourmont for Olivier Senant, [ca. 1505].. [20] leaves. Small quarto. Early 20th-century speckled calf, tooled in blind, spine gilt, leather label. Extremities lightly worn. Minor soiling. Very good. A rare edition of this early travel narrative, giving an account of the journey of Johannes de Hesse, encompassing the Holy Land and other regions, in 1389. In a similar vein with Mandeville's travels, Hesse's work provides the reader with a fantastic and extremely engaging narrative - he encounters cannibals, pygmies, and a unicorn; sees a parting of the sea, which enables him to reach a holy shrine; finds and visits the Garden of Eden; and spends a significant amount of time visiting the legendary (and mythical) Prester John in his oriental palace. Like Mandeville's travels, Hesse's ITINERARIUS is significant for its place in the development of travel literature. It was popular enough to have been printed in seven editions from about 1490 to 1500, in Cologne, Antwerp, and Deventer. Includes a full-page woodcut printer's device on the verso of the final leaf. GW M07739. GOFF H-148. TOBLER 1389.

PLATINA, Bartolomeo [Sacchi]
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. 0, Nielsen Dansk bibliografi 134. Thesaurus librorum Danicorum 170. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 8141, noten: "den nu för tiden högst sälsynta uplagan af Skåne lagen tr. i Köpenhamn, år 1505". 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 1777 efter tryc … [Click Below for Full Description]
