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]

[Skånelagen]
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]
