In questo trattato l?'A. propone l?'ideale di una conversazione libera e aperta, capace di alleviare gli aspetti piu?' ingrati e severi della vita quotidiana. Rarissima "seconda edizione" (la prima è del 1508). Cfr. Choix de Olschki,VIII,12246 - Brunet,IV,807. Antiche scritte margin., solo qualche lieve fiorit., altrim. esempl. ben conservato. "Giovanni o Gioviano Pontano (Cerreto, Umbria, 1422 o 1426 - Napoli 1503), poeta, fecondissimo scrittore e uomo politico. Padrone della lingua e del verso latini come forse nessun altro umanista, il Pontano non ebbe nel Rinascimento chi lo uguagliasse come prosatore; a lui poeta solo il Poliziano può esser messo vicino". Così Diz. Treccani,IX, p. 621.

According to Sarton, it contains also a chapter on anatomy including a description of the brain" (Stillwell). This chapter appears on f.

He is one of five anatomists between Mondino and the beginning of the sixteenth century to be listed by Baas (Outlines of the history of medicine, p. 297), the others being Petrus de Argelata, Montagnana, Achilini, and Gabriel de Zerbis.Stillwell, The awakening interest in science, III, 313 and IV, 602 (1509 edition).4to, ff.

        DE CHRISTIANE FIDEI ET ROMANORUM PONTIFICUM PERSECUTIONIBUS.

      Basel: Nicolaus Kesler, . 1509 - [6],156,[2] leaves. Folio. Early 18th-century Danish royal binding of speckled calf, spine elaborately gilt with crowned double monogram of Christian VI at head, bottom four compartments gilt with Danish royal arms; front and rear covers gilt and stamped in blind, with a central inlay of speckled and plain calf cut to a lozenge and semi-circle design. Royal stamp on front pastedown, pencil note ("Dupl bibl R") on front free endpaper. Internally crisp and clean except for some worming throughout and waterstaining on lower corner of final few leaves. A fine copy. Second Latin edition of Simonetta's principal work, following the first edition printed in Milan in 1492/93. The mention of the West Indies on the verso of leaf 101 is of interest in documenting early published references to the New World. This mention is found in one of 179 letters written by the author interspersed throughout the text, which is primarily concerned with a history of Christian persecution. Simonetta's correspondence is addressed to a wide circle of Simonetta's contemporaries, including close acquaintances, family members, and renowned figures of the Renaissance such as Lorenzo de Medici, Ludovico Sforza, and Pico della Mirandola. The topics of the letters range over a variety of topics including classical history, mythology, geography, medicine, physics, and astronomy. Although not cited in EUROPEAN AMERICANA, the reference to the New World is also found in the first edition, published in Milan (not before 11) January 1492. The Milanese year was reckoned in the modern style from the mid- 15th century, though still from Christmas prior to 1500, and perhaps the Milanese printer simply forgot to update the year accordingly. Still, the appearance of a reference to the New World in the pre-1500 edition is puzzling, as there should not be any mention of the West Indies before the first publication of the Columbus Letter in March 1493. A very good copy of this early 16th-century Americanum, in a fine 18th-century royal binding. EUROPEAN AMERICANA lists only four copies (New York Public Library, Hispanic Society, University of Wisconsin, and the British Library). EUROPEAN AMERICANA 509/10. ADAMS (CAMBRIDGE) S1184.

        [Horologion syn Theo, periechon ta katothen gegrammena.

      Venedig, Zacharias Kallierges f. Jacomo di Penzi, 23. VIII. 1509].. 162 (statt 192) ungezählte Bll.; 14 der fehlenden in Fragmenten vorhanden (vollständige Kollation: A 2, alpha-psi 8, omega 6). Durchgehend in rot und schwarz gedruckt. Zeitgenössischer venezianischer Ziegenlederband über Holzdeckeln in Alla-Greca-Manier mit schlichter floraler und Streicheisen-Blindprägung an den Deckeln und 8 (von 10) Messingknöpfen. Kapitale mit grünem und rotem Bindfaden umstochen. Schließen fehlen. 8vo.. Erste gedruckte Ausgabe des Horologions; zugleich "the first entirely Greek liturgical book" (Staikos). Einstmals prächtiges Werks der griechischen Liturgie, aus der Presse des größten griechischen Druckers seiner Zeit, Zacharias Kallierges (geb. nicht nach 1473 in Rethymnon auf Kreta, gest. nach 1524). Die herrliche griechische Type, 1508 von Kallierges selbst geschnitten, ging später in den Besitz der Drucker Zanetti und Giunta über. "The designs of the initials and headpieces [...] are based on the illuminations in his manuscripts [...] The balance between the red of the decorative designs and the black of the letterpress [...] create[s] an exceedingly attractive overall effect with a distinctive style of its own. The headpieces, consisting of guilloches with ornamental cusps, are printed in red and in most cases extend across the full width of the text. The illuminated initials, though small, are distinctively calligraphic in style and are notable for their fine craftsmanship and simplicity" (Staikos). - "Wahrscheinlich angezogen von der großen kretischen Kolonie in Venedig, kam Kallierges mit 20 Jahren in die Lagunenstadt und gründete eine rein griechische Druckerei. Sein erster Druck war das [...] 1499 vollendete 'Etymologicum magnum Graecum' [...] Aber noch im Jahr 1500 verließ Kallierges Venedig und begab sich nach Padua, wo er seinen Lebensunterhalt als Kopist grischischer Handschriften verdiente; dort lernte er u. a. Erasmus von Rotterdam kennen. 1509 begegnen wir ihm wieder als Drucker liturgischer Werke in Venedig" (Lex. d. ges. Buchw. IV, 133). "This delightful book was the last product of Kallierges's second spell as a printer" (Staikos). "On remarque dans ce livre [...] l'absence de la marque de Callergi. Cette edition de l''Horologium' est d'une insigne rarete" (Legrand I, S. 96). Sogar die Existenz dieses Druckes wurde lange angezweifelt: "Nous nous rappelons avoir entendu feu Ambroise Didot exprimer des doutes sur l'existence de cet 'Horologium', dont un exemplaire etait a vendre chez Quaritch, de Londres, en 1874, au prix peu eleve de 6 10 sh." (ebd., S. CXXVIII f. Dabei handelte es sich übrigens um das Exemplar des Humanisten Willibald Pirckheimer, wie vorliegend im ursprünglichen venezianischen Einband - es gelangte offenbar hernach in die Bibliothek des Fürsten Mavrokordatos). "Ce livre, imprime aux frais de Jacques Depenio, de Lecco, personnage qui ne nous est pas autrement conni, est precede d'une preface, dans laquelle Callergi annonce qu'il se propose de publier plusierus autres livres liturgiques, tels que la 'Paraclitiki', les 'Menees', le 'Triodium' et le 'Pentecostarium'. Ce projet n'eut probablement pas de suite, du moins on n'a pas encore signale d'ouvrages pareils sortis des presses de Callergi. Il est probable que, comme Alde, il fut force, par la ligue de Cambrai, de fermer son imprimerie" (ebd., S. CXXIX). Jacomo de Penzi aus Lecco am Comer See war einer der letzten Inkunabeldrucker Venedigs. "Presumably Kallierges had to ask Penzi to back him because he had used up all his savings [...] The Horologion was the first book of its kind ever printed, namely an entirely Greek book intended exclusively for use in church services" (Staikos). - Der charakteristische Einbandstil "a la grecque" kam nach dem Fall Konstantinopels 1453 mit den Legionen griechischer Gelehrter in die Zentren westlicher (Druck-)Kultur, allen voran Florenz und Venedig. Seine Merkmale sind die hochstehenden Kapitale, der durch eingesägte Bünde erzielte glatte, runde Rücken und der mit den Deckelkanten bündige (manchmal sogar vorstehende) Vorderschnitt (vgl. z. B. Geldner, Bucheinbände aus 11 Jhdtn., Abb. 53, 67 u. 69, sowie v. Arnim, Kat. Otto Schäfer, Nr. 42). Das Papier gebräunt und teils stärker fingerfleckig. Es fehlen vollständig: der (zweiseitige) Titel (Bl. A 1), die Lage kappa, die Bll. lambda 1+8, my 1+8, ny 1+8, ypsilon 4+5, omega 6 (recto Kolophon, verso vacat). Nur in (teils schmalen) Fragmenten erhalten sind darüber hinaus die Bll. A 2 (die bei Legrand vollständig abgedruckte "curieuse preface"), alpha 1-4, eta 8, zeta 1+2, theta 1 (bloß der unbedruckte Innenrand), omega 4+5. Die Lagen zeta und eta sowie chi und psi gegeneinander verbunden. Im Faksimile liegen bei Bl. A 1r , alpha 1r und omega 6r (Titel, Textbeginn und Kolophon). Der schöne Einband an den Kapitalen lädiert; Kapitalbänder defekt; Leder am Rücken gesprungen; am etwas beriebenen Hinterdeckel fehlen zwei der fünf Messingknöpfe.

        De quattuor heresiarchis ordinis Predicatorum de Observantia nuncupatorum, apud Switenses in civitate Bernensi combustis Anno Cristi etc. MDIX.

      [München, Hans Schobser, 1509].. (54) SS., l. w. Bl. Mit Titelholzschnitt. Pappband. 4to.. Einer von vier lateinischen Drucken im Jahr der Erstausgabe. Dem Magistrat von Bern gewidmete Schrift über den sog. "Jetzerhandel" und den Streit zwischen Dominikanern und Franziskanern um die Lehre der unbefleckten Empfängnis Mariä. 1507 trat der Schneidergeselle Johann Jetzer aus Zurzach als Novize ins Predigerkloster in Bern ein und simulierte Erscheinungen. Nach seiner Entlarvung beschuldigte er die Mönche, ihn mit Hilfe des Teufels mißbraucht zu haben. Im anschließenden Ketzerprozeß wurden die beschuldigten Mönche verhaftet und nach Folterung zum Tod auf dem Scheiterhaufen verurteilt. Murner, von den Franziskanern als Prozeßbeobachter entsandt, verfolgte die Endphase des Prozesses und war auch am 31. Mai 1509 bei der Hinrichtung der vier Verurteilten zugegen. Erst im 19. Jahrhundert stellte sich heraus, daß die Mönche Opfer eines Justizmordes geworden waren (vgl. Steck, Der Berner Ketzerprozeß. Bern, 1902). - Gutes, sauberes Exemplar; komplett mit dem letzten w. Blatt. Der Titelholzschnitt zeigt die Verbrennung der Vier auf dem Scheiterhaufen. - VD 16, M 7052. Panzer IX, 110, 38. Nicht bei Adams oder BM-STC German.

        Tractatus de Virtutibus Herbarum. (colophon:)

      1509. Venice, Joannes Rubeus and Bernardinus Vercellensis, March 15 1509. 4to (210 x 150 mm), ff. (4), 150, (18, including terminal blank), with 150 woodcuts in the text; title torn with lower margin renewed at an early date, not affecting text, first gathering and final blank strengthened at inner margin, some occasional minor stains and finger soiling, some early annotations, generally a very good copy in eighteenth-century Italian vellum, a little worming to spine. This is the third edition of the 'Herbarius Latinus' printed in Venice, and the fourth printed in Italy. With two exceptions, these are the blocks cut for the 1491 Vicenza edition, which were transferred to Venice and used by Simone Bevilacqua for his 1499 edition; two of the blocks are copies of the originals, with one reversed. The blocks were used again for the 1502 Giunta edition, which the above is a page-for-page reprint of. The preface attributes the work to Arnoldus de Villanova, as does the 1502 edition, which was copying an error in the text of the 1499. Despite the fact that the 'Herbarius' originated in Germany, it 'sold as well in Italy, as it did in Germany, if not better. There its second section may have contributed to its success, for it was concerned with materials of medicine that were commonly available in the shops of apothecaries and spice merchants... The second section has 96 chapters, though many of them are very brief. They deal with the following: laxatives; aromatics, fruits, seed, and plants of garden and orchard; gums and resins; salts; minerals and stones; and a variety of animals and their products, such as goose-grease, cheese, honey, and ivory''(Anderson, An illustrated history of the herbals p. 86). The Italian woodcuts are based on the German 'Herbarius' cuts 'but all are newly designed, being finer in execution and the lines more delicate, and for the greater part quite different' (Klebs). Nissen considered them more delicate and Arber 'more ambitious... and, on the whole... more naturalistic' (Herbals p. 192).

        DE CHRISTIANE FIDEI ET ROMANORUM PONTIFICUM PERSECUTIONIBUS

      Basel: Nicolaus Kesler, 1509.. [6],156,[2] leaves. Folio. Early 18th-century Danish royal binding of speckled calf, spine elaborately gilt with crowned double monogram of Christian VI at head, bottom four compartments gilt with Danish royal arms; front and rear covers gilt and stamped in blind, with a central inlay of speckled and plain calf cut to a lozenge and semi-circle design. Royal stamp on front pastedown, pencil note ("Dupl bibl R") on front free endpaper. Internally crisp and clean except for some worming throughout and waterstaining on lower corner of final few leaves. A near fine copy. Second Latin edition of Simonetta's principal work, following the first edition printed in Milan in 1492/93. The mention of the West Indies on the verso of leaf 101 is of interest in documenting early published references to the New World. This mention is found in one of 179 letters written by the author interspersed throughout the text, which is primarily concerned with a history of Christian persecution. Simonetta's correspondence is addressed to a wide circle of Simonetta's contemporaries, including close acquaintances, family members, and renowned figures of the Renaissance such as Lorenzo de Medici, Ludovico Sforza, and Pico della Mirandola. The topics of the letters range over a variety of topics including classical history, mythology, geography, medicine, physics, and astronomy. Although not cited in EUROPEAN AMERICANA, the reference to the New World is also found in the first edition, published in Milan (not before 11) January 1492. The Milanese year was reckoned in the modern style from the mid- 15th century, though still from Christmas prior to 1500, and perhaps the Milanese printer simply forgot to update the year accordingly. Still, the appearance of a reference to the New World in the pre-1500 edition is puzzling, as there should not be any mention of the West Indies before the first publication of the Columbus Letter in March 1493. A very good copy of this early 16th-century Americanum, in a fine 18th-century royal binding. EUROPEAN AMERICANA lists only four copies (New York Public Library, Hispanic Society, University of Wisconsin, and the British Library). EUROPEAN AMERICANA 509/10. ADAMS (CAMBRIDGE) S1184. PROCTOR 14078.

        ALBRECHT DURER: LA PICCOLA PASSIONE XILOGRAFICA - NORIMBERGA 1511 (THE SMALL PASSION) Fine Facsimile Edition of 16th Century Graphic Work

      Il Bulino. New. Hardcover. <p>The Small Passion is one of the most famous works of Albrecht Dürer. Made between 1509 and 1511, when it was published in a book by the same artist, publisher himself of his great graphic works. </p><p>The work consists of 36 woodcut plates, plus the title page, "vir dolorum", and a further table, already repudiated by Dürer, but included for documentation, the average size of the woodcuts is 128 x 96 mm, printed on sheets of 21 x 15 cm. </p><p>The original volume was completed with the comment to the tables of Philip Chelidonio.  A few years after, the entire suite was sold by Dürer to the engraver Marcantonio Raimondi in Bologna, with whom Dürer then came into conflict, accusing him of plagiarism.  In fact, Raimondi used the tables  to do the same work in etching, as well as copied other works - particularly the leaves of the "Life of the Virgin" - to sell them on the Italian and European market. </p><p>Such was the popularity of Dürer&#39;s work in the first decades of the sixteenth century, that many artists were inspired fortheir works: Romanino by Pontormo, but also many German and Flemish illuminators, as Nicolaus Glockendon and Simon Bening. </p><p>The original drawings reappeared in Venice, and after an edition in the mid-sixteenth century, in 1600 the work on the initiative of the cartographer and engraver Donato Rasciotti, was reprinted by the publisher Venetian Daniele Bisuccio with a dedication to the Archduke of Austria, with a new title and with the new commentary in Italian by Maurizio Moro. </p><p>The facsimile edition of the work wak taken by one of the rare examples of test printing of the seventeenth century, from a private collection, withaout the text by Maurizio Moro, but with all the original woodcut apparatus: the title "Vir dolorum", the 36 tablets of the Passion, preceded by two woodcuts dedicated to Progenitors in Eden, and the first version of the table "Christ on the Mount of Olives", then repudiated by Dürer and replaced with the new one . </p><p>The format (21 x 15) and the number of pages (76 + VIII endpapers and imprint) are similar to the original work. </p><p>The work is printed on Fabriano Gentile paper, the leather binding with a frame engraved on the plates, is by Ancient Bookbinding Gozzi of Modena. </p><p>Facsimile editione is completed by a volume (in Italian) about life and work of Albrecht Dürer.  The author is the same publisher, Mauro Bini, who has re-read the story of the artist of Nuremberg in an innovative way: a long journey to the "modernity."  Since its first youth in Germany, the two journeys in Italy and Venice, to the last stay in Flanders in 1520-21, Dürer went to the discovery of new trends in the Renaissance and the new dimension of man and of scientific knowledge as in Anversa, capital of trade and balance of political world, discovered the new European bourgeois society. </p><p>The Small Passion wood and this commentary volume are kept in a brown silk box. The print run consists of 199 copies, numbered and certified, + 26 signed from A to Z reserved for Bulino. S friends. </p> .

        La penitenza di San Girolamo

      Xilografia, 1509, datata e monogrammata in lastra in basso a destra. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, completa della linea marginale, restauro perfettamente eseguito nella parte superiore sinistra ed inferiore destra, lievi tracce di colore, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione.Heusebius Hieronymus Sophronius (342 ? 420), poi divenuto San Girolamo, nacque a Stridone nella Dalmazia. Uomo di notevole vigore intellettuale, viaggio molto da giovane e si recò in pellegrinaggio in Terra Santa. Si ritirò poi per quattro anni nel deserto siriano a vivere da eremita, dedicandosi allo studio. Come scrive lui stesso nelle sue lettere, il rigoroso ascetismo della vita quotidiana lo portò a subire le più forti tentazioni della carne, inducendolo a percuotersi il petto con una pietra. Nell?iconografia della penitenza è solitamente raffigurato come un vecchio con barba e capelli bianchi; vestito parzialmente di cenci o pelli è inginocchiato davanti al crocifisso in un paesaggio desertico, reggendo una pietra e spesso con accanto un teschio ed una clessidra. La scena ideata dal Cranach rappresenta un insieme di momenti dell?iconografia classica. Lo descrive nell?atto della penitenza, un libro nella mano ed una pietra nell?altra, con accanto un leone. Il libro rappresenta uno dei suoi attributi più comuni, in quanto studioso erudito, come dimostra l?altra iconografia classica che lo ritrae nello studio intento a scrivere e leggere. Altro elemento che lo caratterizza è il leone; come narra un racconto popolare, Girolamo estrasse una spina dalla zampa di un leone e da quel momento l?animale divenne suo amico. Stilisticamente l?opera denota l?infuenza della pittura italiana; il gruppo di figure in primo piano è fortemente inserito nel lussuregiante paesaggio, nel quale quasi si perde. Si è vicini al vero e proprio quadro di paesaggio, che sembra essere la reale intenzione del Cranach, in questa che rappresenta una delle sue opere migliori.Bibliografia: Hollstein 84; Bartsch 63. Dimensioni 230x348. Woodcut, 1509, dated and signed with monogram on plate on lower right. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with full margin line, perfectly executed repairs on upper left and lower right, light signs of colour, in general in very good condition. Heusebius Hieronymus Sophronius (342 ? 420), afterwards known as St. Jerome, was born in Strimone, Dalmatia. He was famous as an intellectual man; as a young boy, he travelled a lot and went also on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. He then lived for four years in the desert of Syria, as hermit, studying. As he wrote on his letters, the harshness of this life led him on the verge of falling into temptation and for that reason he used to beat his breast with a stone. In iconography he is usually depicted as an old man, with white hair and beard; wearing leathers and rags, kneeling down before the Cross in a desert landscape; holding a stone; beside a skull and a sandglass. Cranach?s print depicts almost all together all the iconographical elements, for he is doing penance, holding a book and a stone, beside a lion. The book is one of the most common characteristics, as he was an erudite (another classical iconographical representation is St. Jerome reading and studying). The lion derives from a popular tale, in which Jerome pulls out a thorn from a lion?s leg, becoming his friend. From a stylistic point of view, the influence of Italian painting is quite evident: the figures on the foreground are put inside the luxuriant landscape. This can be defined as a landscape painting, and without any doubt can be considered one of the best works from Cranach. 238 348

(4), 150, (18, including terminal blank), with 150 woodcuts in the text; title torn with lower margin renewed at an early date, not affecting text, first gathering and final blank strengthened at inner margin, some occasional minor stains and finger soiling, some early annotations, generally a very good copy in eighteenth-century Italian vellum, a little worming to spine. This is the third edition of the 'Herbarius Latinus' printed in Venice, and the fourth printed in Italy. With two exceptions, these are the blocks cut for the 1491 Vicenza edition, which were transferred to Venice and used by Simone Bevilacqua for his 1499 edition; two of the blocks are copies of the originals, with one reversed. The blocks were used again for the 1502 Giunta edition, which the above is a page-for-page reprint of. The preface attributes the work to Arnoldus de Villanova, as does the 1502 edition, which was copying an error in the text of the 1499. Despite the fact that the 'Herbarius' originated in Germany, it 'sold as well in Italy, as it did in Germany, if not better. There its second section may have contributed to its success, for it was concerned with materials of medicine that were commonly available in the shops of apothecaries and spice merchants... The second section has 96 chapters, though many of them are very brief. They deal with the following: laxatives; aromatics, fruits, seed, and plants of garden and orchard; gums and resins; salts; minerals and stones; and a variety of animals and their products, such as goose-grease, cheese, honey, and ivory''(Anderson, An illustrated history of the herbals p. 86). The Italian woodcuts are based on the German 'Herbarius' cuts 'but all are newly designed, being finer in execution and the lines more delicate, and for the greater part quite different' (Klebs). Nissen considered them more delicate and Arber 'more ambitious... and, on the whole... more naturalistic' (Herbals p. 192).

        Divina Proportione

      Venice: Paganino de Paganini, 1509. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio [29.25 x 19.25 cm], (66) ff., including integral blank (E10), 87 plates (unsigned). A6,b-d8,E10, a-b8, c10, (unsigned plates), including title and final leaf printed in red and black and numerous geometrical diagrams printed in margin of text section, as well as floral and criblé initials in text.

Repair to initial P on D1, with some letters or partial letters restored on verso; minor repair to clean tear in blank upper margin of illustration XIIII. Generally a very large and attractive copy with clear and bright impressions of the illustrations. First and only edition of one of the richest sources for studying the interplay of mathematics, art and architectural theory and typography during the High Renaissance by the mathematician Luca Pacioli, with illustrations designed by Leonardo da Vinci. For height and amplitude of margins, this is among the finest copies we have encountered in 30 years, two cm taller than the excellent Schaefer copy. A copy with a fine, and for a work of typographical interest, appropriate provenance, having belonged to the great American collector and printing magnate Robert Hoe (1839-1909), the founding President of the Grolier Club. The Divina proportione is one of the most remarkable illustrated books published in the sixteenth century. In it, the author sets forth a way of describing the visible world in terms of its common geometrical elements, what he calls the "divine proportion." Based on the writings of Plato, Euclid, and Vitruvius, and arguing his thesis by means of exegesis and the generous use of evocative illustration, Pacioli claims that this proportional element is shared by a variety of solid bodies, from human anatomy to architectural forms and even to the composition of the letter forms in the Roman alphabet. The work treats stereometry & related subjects and includes 61 remarkable illustrations by Leonardo da Vinci, which form the earliest work from the artist&#39;s hand to appear in print. "Pacioli formed a close relationship with Leonardo da Vinci when both were at the court of Lodovico il Moro in Milan. Pacioli&#39;s treatises and Leonardo&#39;s notebooks testify to their association. Pacioli knew Leonardo&#39;s work during this period in great detail," and he acknowledges that Leonardo was responsible for the designs of stereometric bodies appended to the Divina proportione. -Daly, Piero della Francesca&#39;s Mathematical Texts, p. 5. According to Marinoni, Leonardo studied Euclid under the tutelage of Pacioli in order to acquire "some deeper knowledge of geometry before undertaking the splendid drawings of solid bodies" for his book. (DSB VIII. 235)
