PALLAS, Peter Simon.
- BMC NH, p. 1505; Nissen, ZBI 3074; Wood, p. 511; DSB X, pp. 283-285. First edition of Pallas's monograph on rodents. Peter Simon Pallas occupied himself with botany, zoology, geology, and geography, searching constantly for "causal interrelationships and hidden regularities of natural phenomena. . He was one of the first to use anatomical characteristics in classifying animals. His research in comparative anatomy provided the foundations for animal taxonomy" (DSB). His descriptions of rodents in the present volume are accompanied by attractive and accurate plates of animals and animal parts. A highly desirable, clean and wide-margined copy.

No place, no publisher, 1505. 16mo (12,1 x 8,7 cm). 4 lvs (lf 4 blank). Modern blind-tooled leather. Spine with 3 raised bands. 30 lines to the page; text-size 9,6 x 7.0 cm. With 10 decorated 5 to 6-line initials and 1 minuscle for initial. This small treatise is about the arrangements between the ten Christian religions that have permanent presence in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem (the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, the Church of the Resurrection). The control of the building is shared between a number of Christian churches and secular entities. Those arrangements have remained unchanged for centuries. Several editions of this small treatise have been printed from the 1490s till the first decade of the 16th century. All these editions have been printed at Rome; and only a few copies of each of these editions are known with certainty. In the Dutch Low Countries, a fictive account of a pilgimage to the Holy Land, "Itinerarius per diversas mundi partes", by Johannes de Hese, a cleric from Utrecht, was very popular. In some of these editions De Hese's text was directly followed by the "Divisiones decem nationum", although sometimes with a slightly different title. In our view this is a post-1500 copy (ca 1505 - 1510), but we have not been able to identify the printer (not quoted in Adams, BNP, BM, Pettegree, Nijhoff-Kronenberg &c and not present in any public library). A nice, well-bound and well-kept copy of this rare post-incunable edition. For a full description and more images please visit: www.zaalbooks.nl .

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 inscriptions on … [Click Below for Full Description]

HIRSCHFELD, Christian Cay Lorenz.
BAL 1505; Berlin Kat. 3353; Springer, Bibl. Overzicht, p. 65. First edition of a work on English garden design, written by the German professor in philosophy and art Christian Cay Lorenz Hirschfeld (1742-1792). Hirschfeld, professor to the University at Kiel in Germany, was specialized in the art of the garden, and wrote a number of books on country-houses and country-gardens. The present is generally seen as the author's most important work, introducing English garden design to the European mainland. It led to garden renovations all over Europe, disposing the baroque elements and replacing them by neoclassical architecture, sculptures and ruins. As Hirschfeld loved nature, he much preferred the more natural English school of garden architecture above the stylistic French and the too abundant Italian schools. He did much to promote the English garden in Germany, and paved the way for the new ideas that a garden, though cultivated, should be in harmony with nature. This work, in which he treats the whole history and theory of garden architecture, is a classic in its field, and is still of importance. Bindings slightly rubbed and corners bumped. Some occasional spots, overall a good copy.

QUINTUS CALABRUS Smyrnaeus
Aldo, 1505. in - 8 (161 x 97 mm), ff. 172, deliziosa legatura di inizio ottocento, in marocchino blu a grana larga, piatti decorati con duplice bordura floreale e geometrica stilizzata, dorso liscio con fitto motivo a piccoli ferri e duplice tassello, uno in rosso con l'indicazione ''Calaber'', l'altro verde con il nome dello stampatore, il tutto impresso in oro. Ancora aldina al titolo e al verso dell'ultimo f. Editio Princeps dei tre poemetti epici relativi all'epopea omerica; l'opera di Quintus Smyrnaeus (detto Calabro perché il manoscritto fu ritrovato dal Cardinale Bessarione a Otranto) in particolare riguarda gli avvenimenti intercorsi tra la fine dell'Iliade e l'inizio dell' Odissea. Nella vita che precede il Coluthus, Aldo dà atto a Bessarione della scoperta dei manoscritti. Questa edizione aldina, veramente di notevole rarità, è databile con certezza 1505, facendo seguito alla mitica edizione di Omero del 1504, anch'essa senza data. Sul catalogo del 1503 conservato presso la Bibl.Nazionale di Parigi, Aldo stesso aveva aggiunto di sua mano alcuni libri impressi nel 1504 - 5, e tra questi il Quinto Smirneo. Bell'esemplare elegantemente rilegato da un raffinato legatore francese di inizio Ottocento, fresco, molto marginoso (provenienza: ex libris al contropiatto Bibliothèque de M. Renard; interessanti postille ms. nella parte finale del volume).

Albrecht DURER (Norimberga 1471 - 1528)
1505. Bulino, 1505, datato in lastra il altro al centro e monogrammato in basso a destra. Esemplare della quinta variante di sei descritta dal Meder. Bellissima prova, nitida e contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "armi di Memmingen" (Meder 237, Briquet 931), con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il titolo Il grande cavallo è legato non alle dimensioni della stampa, ma alle proporzioni dell'animale. La stampa è coeva a quella del Piccolo cavallo e riflette la fase in cui Dürer studiava e si cimentava nelle proporzioni dei corpi e in particolare su quelle dei cavalli, fino a pubblicare nel 1525 il Manuale delle misure e nel 1528 quattro libri delle Umane proporzioni, dai quali però rimasero esclusi proprio gli studi dell'artista sulle proporzioni del cavallo, poi riprese da Hans Sebald Beham dopo la morte di Dürer. Sono stati individuati quali precedenti per questa stampa due disegni del 1503 (Winkler n. 360 e n. 361). Mende ha proposto che in questa stampa sia in realtà rappresentato Bucefalo, il mitico cavallo di Alessandro Magno. In quest'opera il cavallo è ripreso dal dietro secondo una prospettiva che ha l'effetto di rafforzare l'idea del volume, di mettere in risalto la sua forma e la monumentalità, e di ingrandire le sue dimensioni apparenti. Da questa prospettiva infatti, il cavallo riempie lo spazio da un margine all'altro. A quest'opera si ispirò Caravaggio per la Conversione di San Paolo, per ottenere il massimo di naturalismo e monumentalità. Bell'esemplare di questa affascinante opera.

AESOP
Apud Aldum, October, 1505. FIRST EDITIONS (in parts) Folio. 150 ll. A8 a8 B10 b8 C8 c8 D10 d8 e-h8 i6 k-_8, o4. Greek and Roman letter, mostly on alternating ll. partly double column, printer's dolphin and anchor device on t.p. and larger on verso of last. T.p. very slightly dusty, a very handsome, clean, large, thick paper copy in English late C18 straight grained red morocco, a.e.g. C18 armorial bookplate of Wilmot, 3rd Viscount Listburne on front pastedown, C20 of William Davignon on ffep. One of the rarest and most sought after editions of the early Aldine press and in practice the earliest obtainable of the author's original text. The volume comprises the Aesopian Fables in Latin and Greek, together with a life of the author, similarly the 34 fables of Gabrias, Phurnutus on the 'nature of the Gods', Palaephatus on disbelieving histories, Heraclides on the allegories of Homer, the hieroglyphs of Horapollo, a collection of proverbs drawn from Tarraeus and Didymus, Aphthonius and Philostratus' de fabula in Latin and Greek, those of Hermogenes translated by Priscian, and finally an Apologia for Aesop 'de Cassita apud Gellium'. Almost all of these, apart from the Aesop, are in their first edition or editio princeps, Praz p. 373 particularly notices the Horapollo.Aesop is the traditional composer of the oldest and most important collection of Greek Fables, which are probably the earliest examples of popular and maybe children's literature still extant. Herodotus, writing in the fifth century BC already knew of Aesop as an author from the past. Aesop's life has been overlaid … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHALARIS Pseudo
Luere Francesco de, 1505. in - 4, ff. 44 n.n. (segn. A4 B - F8), elegante leg. 800esca in marocchino verde, titolo e fregi in oro al dorso a nervetti, tagli dorati. Frontespizio silografico su fondo nero, una grande iniziale ornata, car. tondo. Precedono il testo l'importante proemio di Francesco Griffolini ''Aretinus'' a Novello Malatesta, signore di Cesena, nel quale afferma la maggiore veridicità storica del genere epistolare rispetto alle cronache; e la dedica del cremonese Niccolò Lugaro (1447 - 1515) a Corrado Stanga. L'editore Zavarisio utilizzava abitualmente la tipografia di Francesco Riccardi. Queste lettere, erroneamente attribuite a Falaride (VI secolo a.C., tiranno di Acragas), si devono probabilmente ad Apollonio di Tyana e Marco Bruto (I secolo a.C.). La traduzione si deve al Griffolini (1420 - 1490 c.) ''la più importante impresa versoria del G., per la quale egli conseguì grande fama in età umanistica grazie anche alla cospicua fortuna del testo, poi volgarizzato da Bartolomeo Fonzio'' (D.B.It vol. 59, p.383). Pur essendo rarissime la maggior parte delle numerose edizioni quattrocentesche, l'importanza di questa elegantissima edizione va ricercata nel legno che funge da frontespizio, tra i più raffinati del primo Cinquecento italiano: in grandi capitali intagliate su fondo nero, in alto il monogramma di Cristo, in basso un lieve fregio floreale. Le lettere sono state in alcuni casi accorpate per ottenere la stessa giustificazione delle 4 parole pur mantenendo le stesse proporzioni.

Brant, Sebastian
Paris: Jodocus Badius Ascensius (Josse Badius), 1505. Leaf. Very Good. Dürer, Albrecht. The leaf is approximately 5.25" x 8". Each woodcut is approximately 85 x 115 mm. The woodcuts have dark, crisp impressions. The leaf has some minor marginal toning. Very nice example of Dürer's earliest woodcut designs. Thirteen editions were published between 1494 and 1521 (six authorized and seven pirated). Leaves from these editions are very easily confused and many later printings are often listed as firsts; in all but the very first edition, the woodcuts were done by other craftsmen based on Dürer's original designs. This leaf is from the second Latin edition. It contains two woodcuts (most leaves 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 woodcut, "The Teaching of Wisdom," illustrates both wise men and fools reacting to a sermon. The reverse, "Stroking a Fallow Stallion," is depiction of a fool being trampled by a horse he feigned to respect which symbolizers the ultimate fate of false flatters. One of the most famous and popular works during the early years of printing, The Ship of Fools was a satire on the many then current ecclesiastical abuses as exemplified by Brant's 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 jou … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOOK OF HOURS PRINTED ON VELLUM, IN LATIN AND FRENCH
Paris: Thielmann Kerver, [colophon dated], 1505 [calendar covering the years 1497-1520]. n. This is a rare and appealing edition of a printed Book of Hours from a major Parisian publisher renowned for this kind of prayer book. Seven of the large miniatures--the Betrayal, Tree of Jesse, Annunciation, Nativity, Annunciation to the Shepherds, Flight into Egypt, and David and Bathsheba--are based on those created by the printer Pigouchet for his 1496 edition. The scenes depicting the Coronation of the Virgin, the Instruments of the Passion, and the Virgin with her emblems were created by the Kerver workshop for an incunabular edition, as was the diagram explaining the concept of the Trinity, which is based on an entirely different conception than that used by Pigouchet and other publishers. The Kerver blocks new to this edition are slightly larger, and depict the Martyrdom of St. John, the Visitation, Presentation, Crucifixion, Pentecost, and Raising of Lazarus. According to Mortimer, "the figures seem slightly elongated in contrast to those in the earlier blocks, and the more sophisticated style shows a German influence." In addition to the Hours of the Blessed Virgin, the text includes prayers to prepare for Mass, Hours of the Cross, of the Holy Spirit, of the Conception of the Virgin, and of Saint Barbara, Mass of the Virgin, the Seven Penitential Psalms, Suffrages, prayers of St. Gregory and St. Bridget, and the Office of the Dead. Thielman Kerver the Elder (d. 1522) came from Koblenz to Paris around 1497, and began printing works for Jean Petit, the preeminent Parisian pub … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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.

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). Although initially published in German, this leaf is from the second Latin edition.
