        Le ingeniose sorti

      With one - page index in contemporary manuscript on blank endleaf. A magnificent woodcut title designed by Guiseppe Porta [Salviati] depicting classical figures consulting Marcolini?s book. Full - page engraved frontispiece portrait of Marcolini framed by a pediment and caryatids on the verso of the title page (a composition sometimes attributed to Titian), and hundreds of beautiful text illustrations and tables. Elaborate colophon with printer?s device and mark (?Veritas Filia Tempris?) on verso of last printed leaf. Contemporary calf with blind - stamped floral decoration and fillets on covers, extremities and some interior corners carefully restored; a few small, unobtrusive wormholes on frontispiece, lightly age - toned. Overall an excellent copy. Extremely rare second edition with considerable alterations and additions (See Mortimer, 280). This extraordinary, rare work provides evidence that playing cards were used for divination in the sixteenth century. For this game of fortune and chance, players ask one of fifty provided questions, then draw a series of cards directing them to their personal answer (in the form of a tercet verse written by the well - known Renaissance poet Lodovico Dolce [1508 / 10 - 1568]). Virtues and follies, along with philosophers, are shown in the many fascinating emblematic illustrations, which strongly influenced Renaissance artists, most notably Bronzino (see Cole, Sixteenth Century Italian Art, p. 75). Because of its appeal to magic and often anti - clerical verses, the book was placed on the Church?s Index of prohibited books during the Inquisition. Marcolini (ca. 1500 - 1559) was a prominent Italian printer born in Forlì, a lover of the arts, architecture, and music. He worked in Venice, and was known for his fine printing, illustrations, and typography. ?Among the smaller houses the best printer at Venice in the first half of century was Francesco Marcolini . . . who . . . produced about 100 books between 1535 and 1559. He was typical of his generation in that he printed almost entirely in italic? (Wroth, A History of The Printed Book, pp. 124 - 125). Porta Salviati (ca. 1520 - 1575) was from northern Tuscany. He was the student of the renowned Mannerist painter Francesco Salviati, from whom he took his professional name.

        El veneciano Sebastián Caboto, al servicio de España y especialmente de su proyectado viaje á las Molucas por el Estrecho de Magallanes y al reconocimiento de la costa del continente hasta la gobernación de Pedrarias Dávila

      2 volumes: ix+634 pages with frontispiece, photostat copies of original manuscripts, plates and bibliography; 613 pages with index. Folio (13" x 9 3/4") bound in three quarter leather with red and gilt lettering to spine. First edition.Sebastian Cabot was born to Giovanni Caboto (John Cabot), also an explorer variously credited with Genoese or Gaetan origins, and Mattea. In 1508-09 Sebastian Cabot followed in his father's footsteps by leading one of the first expeditions to find a North-West passage, and indeed claimed to have found one, but was forced to turn back by his crew. He may have found the entrance to Hudson's Bay. By 1512 Sebastian was certainly employed by Henry VIII as a cartographer at Greenwich. In the same year he accompanied the English explorer Hugh Willoughby to Spain, where he was made captain by Ferdinand V. After Ferdinand's death he returned to England. In 1516, Cabot and Sir Thomas Pert, then Vice Admiral of England, sailed in two ships to explore the coasts of Brazil and the West Indies for Henry VIII.[1] After coming under artillery fire at Hispaniola, the expedition withdrew and returned to England reportedly because of Pert's faint-heartedness.[2][3] Subsequently, Cabot moved to Spain due to greater support for explorations by the Spanish king.[4] In 1522, although once more in the employ of Spain as a member of the Council of the Indies and holding the rank of pilot-major, he secretly offered his services to Venice, undertaking to find the Northwest Passage to China. Cabot finally received the rank of captain general from Spain, and was entrusted on March 4, 1525, with the command of a fleet which was to determine from astronomical observation the precise demarcation of the Treaty of Tordesillas and then to convey settlers to the Moluccas, in order to strengthen Spanish claims there. It was officially noted as an expedition "for the discovery of Tharsis, Ophir, and Eastern Cathay." This expedition consisted of four ships with 200 men, and set sail from Sanlucar de Barrameda on April 3, 1526. This voyage might have resulted in a second circumnavigation of the world. Upon landing in Brazil, however, rumors of the wealth of the Incan king and the nearly-successful invasion of Aleixo García caused Cabot to abandon his charge and instead further explore the interior of the Río de la Plata. Cabot had already earned the disapproval of his crew by stranding the fleet in the doldrums and running the flagship aground off Santa Catarina Island. His decision regarding the Río de la Plata led to open resistance from Martin Méndez (his lieutenant general), Miguel de Rodas (pilot of the capitana), and Francisco de Rojas (the captain of one of the other vessels). He dealt with the mutiny by marooning them and other officers on Santa Catarina Island. He then traveled into the Río de la Plata and spent five months exploring the estuary. He established a fort called San Salvador at the confluence of the Uruguay and the Río San Salvador. This was the first Spanish settlement in modern-day Uruguay. Leaving the two larger ships there, he sailed up the Paraná in the brigantine and a galley constructed at Santa Catarina. His party constructed a small fort called Santo or Espíritu Santo at the confluence of the Paraná and the Río Carcarañá. This was the first Spanish settlement in present-day Argentina; the town of Caboto was later constructed nearby and named in his honor. Losing 18 men to an ambush, he returned to San Salvador, passing Diego García's expedition as he went. Cabot sent one ship back to Spain, with his reports, accusations against the mutineers, and requests for further aid. In the spring of 1529, he returned upriver to Espíritu Santo, which he discovered had been overwhelmed and burnt by the Indians during his absence. He recovered the cannon and returned to San Salvador. At a council on 6 August 1529, it was decided to return to Spain. Cabot sailed with García to São Vicente. Purchasing 50 slaves there, he coasted Brazil and arrived in Seville on 22 July 1530, returning home with one ship and 24 men. He was arraigned on charges from the Crown, Rojas, and by the families of Rodas and Méndez. He was condemned by the Council of the Indies on charges of disobedience, misadministration, and causing the death of officers under his command and sentenced to heavy fines and a two-year banishment to Oran in North Africa. His banishment was later doubled. During these proceedings, however, the Emperor had been absent in Germany. Upon his return, Cabot presented him with descriptions of the region. Although no pardon is recorded and the fines were still paid, it is known that Cabot never went into exile and was pilot-major of Spain until 1547, when without losing either the title or the pension, he left Spain and returned to England, where he received a salary with the title of great navigator.Condition:Some light edge wear, rebound with original wrappers bound in a very good set.

A few small inkspots, otherwise clean. (10), 1 blank leaves,525 pp.. Scarce first edition of Aldus' Epistles of Plinius. The edition contains many Epistles never before printed."Containing ten books, with many Epistles never before published: It has also the Panegyric. These (editions from 1508-18) are the only editions of Pliny's Epistles that ever issued from the Aldine press, although bibliographers have erraneously mentioned an edition of 1504. The edition of 1508 is curious from being the first work in which the subscription announces the partnership of Aldus, and his father-in-law Asulanus. It is compiled from some MSS, which Mocenigo brought from France to Italy, and which Aldus says are "not only very correct, but which one would suppose to be as ancient as the time of Pliny himself."

        Libellus de Judaica confessione sive sabbato afflictionis.

      (Nuremberg, Johann Weißenburger, [150]8).. 4to. (20) pp. With a title woodcut and 4 woodcuts in the text (title cut repeated). Modern paper boards wrapped in vellum.. The rarer of two Latin editions of the "Judenbeichte", both published in 1508, after the "Judenspiegel" the second treatise by the fanatical convert Johann Pfefferkorn (1469-1522/23), in which he discusses his former brothers in the Jewish faith and their celebrations, asserting that the Jews were more corrupting than the devil himself and petitioning the Christian authorities to force all Jews to convert or emigrate. The woodcut illustrations in Pfefferkorn's work are the earliest prints depicting Jewish customs and ceremonies. They include a Kapparot scene, ritual bath, matzo preparation, jumbled together with imaginary representations of Jews telling their sins to crows and a Tashlich service during Rosh Hashanah when sins are cast into water. - Johannes (Josef) Pfefferkorn (1469-1523) was a German Catholic theologian and writer. Born Jewish, possibly in Nuremberg, Pfefferkorn moved to Cologne after many years of wandering. After committing a burglary, he was imprisoned and released in 1504. He converted and was baptized together with his family. Pfefferkorn became an assistant to the prior of the Dominicans at Cologne, Jacob van Hoogstraaten, and under the their auspices published several libellous pamphlets in which he tried to demonstrate that Jewish religious writings were hostile to Christianity, and argued for the destruction of all copies of the Talmud. As late as 1509, Emperor Maximilian empowered Pfefferkorn to confiscate all Hebrew writings in Jewish hands and destroy any he found dangerous. After wide-scale protests, the humanist scholar Johannes Reuchlin was commissioned to give an expert opinion on Jewish writings, which led to a long-running battle of pamphlets between Reuchlin and Pfefferkorn, who was defended by the Dominicans. - Upper margin waterstained at right corners, up to first text lines. Removed from an old sammelband, with no. "8" marked at head of title page in ink. Extremely rare: no copy in auction or trade records of the last three decades, not in ABPC. - VD 16, P 2311.

        Itinerarium Portugallensium e Lusitania in Indiam et inde occidentem et demum ad aquilonem.

      [Milan, J. A. Scinzenzeler], 1508.. Folio (248 x 197 mm). 10, 88 ff. (the two index leaves bound before text). Title with full-page woodcut map (second issue, with "Arabicus" replacing "P[er]sicus"). Early 20th century red morocco with title gilt to spine, boards and dentelles ruled in gilt, all edges gilt.. First Latin edition of the most important and "earliest printed collection of voyages and discoveries" (PMM). Also the only edition of this collection of travel reports to include the map showing Africa, Arabia and part of Europe, illustrating for the first time the new discoveries in the eastern hemisphere. This map, not included in the original 1507 Italian edition or any subsequent edition, is the earliest to show Africa completely surrounded by seas and, as one of the first non-Ptolemaic maps to include Arabia, definitely the earliest "modern" printed map to show Mecca. Published in 1508, it raises a controversy still with us more than 500 years later: it labels the Red Sea and the Gulf as a single body of water and calls it the Gulf, but in the first state of the block it was called the "Persian Gulf" ("Sinus Persicus"). For reasons unknown, the editor revised the block with a patch to rename it the "Arabian Gulf" ("Sinus Arabicus"). The map therefore exists in two different states in copies of this edition. Ours is the rarer second one, with "Sinus Arabicus". Considered a "vehicle for the dissemination throughout Renaissance Europe of the news of the great discoveries both in the east and the west" (PMM), the present collection contains reports of the voyages of Columbus, Vespucci, Cabral (Brazil), Cadamos (Africa) and, perhaps most importantly, "the earliest printed account of the voyage of Vasco da Gama" to India (PMM). This voyage to the eastern hemisphere is comparable in importance only to Columbus's in the west, as it "opened the way for the maritime invasion of the East by Europe" (PMM). - Da Gama's pioneering sea voyage ranks amongst the greatest historic events of the second millennium and as "one of the defining moments in the history of exploration" (BBC History, online). It is also considered the turning point in the political history of the Arabian Gulf region, followed as it was by a prolonged period of east-west commerce, conquest and conflict. For better or worse, the discovery of the first all-water trade route between Europe and India catalyzed a series of events that forever changed the political history and geography of the world. Portugal was the first European power to take an active interest in the Gulf region: "Vasco da Gama made the first known reference to this area when he traveled through the Strait of Hormuz to the sheikhdom of Julfar" (Romano). In Julfar, today known as Ras al-Khaimah and part of the United Arab Emirates, Da Gama made contact with the Islamic navigator Ahmed ibn Majid, still remembered as the "first Arabic seaman". On the basis of Portuguese and Arabic records, it has now been established that it was Ibn Majid who finally piloted Vasco da Gama's ship to India using an Arabian map then unknown to European sailors, who previously had been unable to cross the Arabian sea. By gaining trading access to Arabia and India, the Portuguese seized control of the whole region within a few years after Da Gama's discovery and were to dominate the Gulf area for centuries: "In less than two decades, Portuguese forces occupied Julfar and controlled the lower Gulf region. Eventually, the Portuguese extended their presence as far north as the island nation of Bahrein" (Romano). - Engraved bookplate of Dr. Samuel X. Radbill (1901-87) on pastedown. Radbill bought the volume at Sotheby's on 24 July 1939 (lot 176); it remained in his famous collection until it was acquired by us from his descendants in 2014. Foot of map creased as folded for binding, head of first 3 leaves with a stain and last 5 leaves with corner stains, binding slightly rubbed. Overall a very bright and clean copy. Of extraordinary rarity: our copy is one of only three complete copies of the present issue, with "Sinus Persicus" renamed "Sinus Arabicus", to have appeared at auction in the 20th century. - Borba de Moraes I, 580. Harrisse 58. Church 27. Cf. PMM 42. A. Romano, A Historical Atlas of the United Arab Emirates, New York 2004, 26. Sabin 50058 ("of excessive rarity").

Besorgt wurde die Ausgabe mit den Texten zu den blattgrossen Holzschnitten Urs Grafs durch Matthias Ringmann, genannt Philesius (1482-1511), daher auch Ringmann-Passion genannt" (Frank Hieronymus, Basler Buchillustration 1500-1545).Urs Graf hatte die Holzschnitte für die 1506 erschienene Erstausgabe geschaffen. "Urs Grafs erste größere Arbeit für den Holzschnitt, sogleich in einem nicht gewöhnlichen Grossformat; sie hat sich wohl über mehrere Jahre hingezogen" (Hieronymus). In unserer Ausgabe ist für die Auferstehung nicht der Holzschnitt der Drei Marien am Grabe wiederholt, sondern die Auferstehung aus der Passionsfolge von dem um 1480 in Straßburg geborenen Maler und Holzschneider Hans Wechtlin verwendet (zu der Folge vgl. Wilhelm Worringer, Urs Graf. Die Holzschnitte zur Passion. München 1923).

        Le ingeniose sorti

      With one-page index in contemporary manuscript on blank endleaf. A magnificent woodcut title designed by Guiseppe Porta [Salviati] depicting classical figures consulting Marcolini’s book. Full-page engraved frontispiece portrait of Marcolini framed by a pediment and caryatids on the verso of the title page (a composition sometimes attributed to Titian), and hundreds of beautiful text illustrations and tables. Elaborate colophon with printer’s device and mark (“Veritas Filia Tempris”) on verso of last printed leaf. Contemporary calf with blind-stamped floral decoration and fillets on covers, extremities and some interior corners carefully restored; a few small, unobtrusive wormholes on frontispiece, lightly age-toned. Overall an excellent copy. Extremely rare second edition with considerable alterations and additions (See Mortimer, 280). This extraordinary, rare work provides evidence that playing cards were used for divination in the sixteenth century. For this game of fortune and chance, players ask one of fifty provided questions, then draw a series of cards directing them to their personal answer (in the form of a tercet verse written by the well-known Renaissance poet Lodovico Dolce [1508/10-1568]). Virtues and follies, along with philosophers, are shown in the many fascinating emblematic illustrations, which strongly influenced Renaissance artists, most notably Bronzino (see Cole, Sixteenth Century Italian Art, p. 75). Because of its appeal to magic and often anti-clerical verses, the book was placed on the Church’s Index of prohibited books during the Inquisition.& & Marcolini (ca. 1500-1559) was a prominent Italian printer born in Forlì, a lover of the arts, architecture, and music. He worked in Venice, and was known for his fine printing, illustrations, and typography. “Among the smaller houses the best printer at Venice in the first half of century was Francesco Marcolini . . . who . . . produced about 100 books between 1535 and 1559. He was typical of his generation in that he printed almost entirely in italic” (Wroth, A History of The Printed Book, pp. 124-125).& & Porta Salviati (ca. 1520-1575) was from northern Tuscany. He was the student of the renowned Mannerist painter Francesco Salviati, from whom he took his professional name.&

        Vocabularium Pyladae.

      Venice: Giovanni Rossi 1508 - very light damp-staining in the upper margins towards the end, 42 leaves, the last blank, square 8vo (194 x 151 mm), recent half vellum, lettered in ink on the spine, a leaf of manuscript text in an early hand bound at end (quoting from Giraldi?s De Poetis nostrorum temporum, 1545), very good An early edition (first, Brescia 1484) of this ?vocabulary? of unusual Latin words, with reference to Horace, Vergil, Ovid, &c. Gianfresco Boccardo (d. 1505), who adopted the humanist name of ?Pylades?, also produced other educational aids which were often reprinted in the sixteenth century, including a Latin grammar in verse (Carmen scholasticum) and a fuller grammar, the Grammatica, to which this work could be used as an accompaniment.?The Vocabularium is apparently a small dictionary in Latin, each word followed by a definition in metre and a detailed description in prose, giving the various forms of the word and quotations from classical authors? (Plimpton, ?Grammatical Manuscripts and Early Printed Grammars?, Proc. ABA, 1933, p. 163). The first edition also included a short treatise on orthography by Valla, which was not then included in this or other later editions. (CNCE 6449; Vancil, Incunable Dictionaries, 633)

        Britannie utriusque regum et principum origo et gesta insignia,

      [Paris:] by Jodocus Badius Ascensius, [15 July, 1508]. ex antiquissimis Britannici sermonis monumentis in Latinum sermonem traducta: & ab Ascensio cura & impendio magistri Ivonis Cavellati in lucem edita: prostant in eiusdem aedibus. Octavo (196 × 130 mm). Regency polished calf, double black morocco labels, spine with blind and gilt tools in compartments, sides bordered in blind with a decorative roll, drab endpapers. Title woodcut vignette, 3- and 6-line criblé initials. Two small ink notes on title (one erased) and the early ownership inscription "Hasperg"; a manuscript note on the printer to a binder's blank, signed "E.K.C. 1866", noting the book's purchase by "Uncle Hugh" for £1. 11s. 6d. Lower joint starting at ends but holding firm, extremities rubbed, some early manuscript underlines and marginal notes, very light occasional spotting, a very good copy, the paper strong, fresh, and generally clean. First complete edition, edited by Ivo Cavellatus, a professor of the College of Quimper in Paris, from four manuscripts available in Paris, of one of the most important products of Anglo-Norman literature. The Historia regum Britanniae is "one of the most popular and influential historical works of the middle ages" (ODNB); it was written by Geoffrey of Monmouth (c.1100–1154/5), bishop of St Asaph. Completed by 1139, Geoffrey's history introduced such figures as Arthur, Merlin, and King Leir to an international reading public. "The fact that thereafter the Arthurian cycle was mediated primarily through the mid-fifteenth-century Morte d'Arthur of Sir Thomas Malory should not detract from the position of Geoffrey of Monmouth as its great originator. [The figure of King Leir [Lear] seems to have been Geoffrey's original creation, and arguably the most successful.] Indeed, Tatlock described the Leir story 'along with the vogue of Arthur' as 'Geoffrey's greatest contribution to the world'" (op. cit.) The Historia makes Britain's foundation contiguous with classical myth, in the person of Brutus, a Trojan émigré. It proceeds to an account of a series of royal dynasties, some of whose members enjoyed later fame, to the last glorious British kings, notably Uther Pendragon and Arthur, before the final victory of the Saxons. Geoffrey concludes his history in the seventh century AD, where Bede's Historia ecclesiastica begins.

        De cultu vinee domini liber innumere plenus commoditatis

      Paris, Udalricus Gering & Bertholdus Remboldt, 1508, March 8. (Colophon). 4to-format (recte 8vo). Later nice full calf binding (ab. 1900) with richly gilt spine and gilt borders to boards. Scratches to front board. Title-page repaired at margin (with very minor loss to ab. two letters on both recto and verso). Folio VIII and first leaf of index repaired at margin with early 16th century printed paper (no loss). Title-page and index-leaf with fairly heavy dampstaining, otherwise mostly faint dampstaining. Large beautiful woodcut printer's device and many beautiful woodcut initials throughout (the first depicting Adam and Eve).. The very scarce second edition of Suberti's (or Subertus') Manual of pastoral visitation, also called the "de visitatine episcopali", an important tool for Renaissance priests.The work originally appeared in 1504, also printed by Remboldt and Gerin, but the present second edition of 1508 is of special interest, as it constitutes the very final collaboration of the two great printers. Ulrich Gerin, who is famous for being the first printer in Paris and the founder of the first printing office in France, began a partnership with the excellent famous printer Bertold Remboldt during the last decade of the the 15th century. Out of this collaboration appeared some excellent works (that are now sought after), and the partnership lasted till Gerin's death (ab. 1509). The last work that they did together was the second edition of Suberti's visitation manual, which appeared on the 8th of March 1508. After the death of Gerin, Remboldt continued on his own.Another edition of the work appeared in 1514. All three editions are scarce.Adams, S:2018
