Hesse, Johannes Witte de
Paris: Robert Gourmont for Olivier Senant, 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.

Battus added the cookery book, apparently his own compilation, for the second Dutch edition in 1593. It is the third printed Dutch-language cookery book known and the first published in what is now the Netherlands.With bookplate and bookbinder's ticket. With the title-page somewhat worn, some minor water stains in the preliminaries, and some repairs to the folds of the first and last few leaves (not affecting the text), but otherwise in very good condition, with only an occasional minor marginal defect. Important medical work, including the second edition of one of the first Dutch cookery books.

PINCIO, Giano Pirro (fl. 1st half of the 16th cent.)
Mantova, Venturino Ruffinelli 0, 1505. THE FIRST IMPORTANT HISTORY OF TRENT AND SURROUNDING REGIONS, INCLUDING SOUTH TYROLTwo parts in one volume, folio. 16, 104, (2 blank) ll. Contemporary limp vellum, outer corner of front panel skillfully repaired, short inscription on the first title page inked out, a genuine and attractive copy.RARE FIRST EDITION of the first printed important chronicle of what today are the South Tyrol and Trentino regions, especially under its prince bishops Georg Neideck (1505-1514), Bernardo Cles (1514-1539), and Cristoforo Madruzzo (1539-1567). The work is dedicated to Aliprando Cles, nephew of the bishop, and was translated into Italian by Carlo Zanetti in 1648 (cf. A. Chemelli, Trento e le sue Stampe. Il Seicento, Trento, 1983, pp. 6-8).In June 1511 the two principalities of Trento and Brixen had received the status of ''perpetual confederate'' states among Austrian possessions. The peace of 1516 with the Republic of Venice, however, reduced the principality to a discontinuous enclave between large Habsburg possessions. During the war against Venice, in 1509, the territory had been ravaged by Landsknechts returning from a failed expedition against Vicenza. This was followed by pestilences in 1510 and 1512, famines in 1512, 1519 and 1520, and an earthquake in 1521: these grievous happenings spurred the beginning of forms of resistance against Habsburg rule.A true rebellion broke out in 1525, called Bauernkrieg or 'peasants war'. The rebels were led by Michael Gaismayr, who had devised a complex plan of liberation of all the territories of Brixe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pontanus, Johannes Iovianus:
Venedig, Aldus Manutius, 1505.. 242 nn. Bl.. Mit 2 wiederholten Holzschnitt-Druckermarken und 1 Holzschnitt-Initiale. 8°. Späterer Lederband mit reicher Blind- und Goldprägung im Stil der Renaissance; marmorierter Schnitt.. Gering berieben; bio-bibliographische Glossen auf Vorderspiegel und Vordervorsatz (in Französisch); Besitzvermerk eines A. de Belloy auf Vorsatz und Titelei, auch die Glossen möglicherweise von ihm; teils wasserrandig; Bl. p8 und q1 etwas fleckig; letzte Bl. mit winzigem Eckausriss (professionell restauriert). Der italienische Humanist Giovanni Pontano (1427-1503), Philosoph, Poet und Historiker, war Staatssekretär, Schatz- und Kammerpräsident unter den neapolitanischen Königen Ferdinand I und II, Alfons I und II. Vorliegende Werkausgabe ist die erste bei Aldus erschienene. Einer Untersuchung wert ist die mögliche Frage, ob Pontano um 1500 mit N. Kopernikus (1473-1543) in Rom zusammentraf, der dort Vorlesungen zur Astronomie hielt. Zweifelsfrei fest steht, dass Kopernikus in seiner italienischen Studienzeit umfassende Kenntnis des humanistischen Gedankengutes erwarb, d. h. auch mit den Schriften des Pontano bekannt war, dem das eleganteste Latein seiner Zeit nachgesagt wird. Vielleicht war die Befruchtung gegenseitig und Kopernikus somit der Anreger für die astronmischen Hexameter des Pontano. Jöcher II, 706f; Poggendorff II, 499; Brunet IV, 807.

Each woodcut is approximately 85 x 115 mm. The woodcut has a dark, crisp impression. The leaf has some minor marginal toning. Very nice example of D?rer's earliest woodcut designs. One of the most famous and popular works during the early years of printing was Brant's Ship of Fools, a satire on the many then current ecclesiastical abuses as exemplified by his imaginary character, Saint Grobian, the patron saint of vulgarity and coarse manners. A substantial part of the Ship of Fools' popularity was no doubt due to its marvelous woodcut illustrations, most of which were created by Albrecht D?rer, then a young journeyman woodcut designer working in Basel. His work in these woodcuts, Durer's first significant commissioned effort, is not as impressive as his later efforts as a master in Nuremberg; e.g., the hatching consists of only simple parallel lines and contours are crude, thick, and without much variation. Still, they are superior to other illustrations in the book done by an assortment of masters. Thirteen editions were published between 1494 and 1521 (six authorized and seven pirated).

Brant, Sebastian
Paris: Jodocus Badius Ascensius (Josse Badius), 1505. The leaf is approximately 5.25" x 8". Each woodcut is approximately 85 x 115 mm. The woodcut has a dark, crisp impression. The leaf has some minor marginal toning. Very nice example of Dürer's earliest woodcut designs. One of the most famous and popular works during the early years of printing was Brant's Ship of Fools, a satire on the many then current ecclesiastical abuses as exemplified by his imaginary character, Saint Grobian, the patron saint of vulgarity and coarse manners. A substantial part of the Ship of Fools' popularity was no doubt due to its marvelous woodcut illustrations, most of which were created by Albrecht Dürer, then a young journeyman woodcut designer working in Basel. His work in these woodcuts, Durer's first significant commissioned effort, is not as impressive as his later efforts as a master in Nuremberg; e.g., the hatching consists of only simple parallel lines and contours are crude, thick, and without much variation. Still, they are superior to other illustrations in the book done by an assortment of masters. Thirteen editions were published between 1494 and 1521 (six authorized and seven pirated). Although initially published in German, this leaf is from the second Latin edition. This leaf contains two woodcuts (most only have one) featuring Dürer's fools who always wear cowls with ass-ears and a coxcomb of bells (a convention Dürer established). The first, Learning from Fools, illustrates careless fool who has stumbled while following in the same path of a foolish predec … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aldus Manutius, Venice, 1505. 170 x 105 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). [242] leaves. FIRST EDITION. Old vellum over paste boards, ink titling on flat spine. With Aldine anchor device on title and last page. 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. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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> .

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.

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]

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.
