        Octava Asiae Tabula

      Venice: Bernado Sylvanus, 1511. unbound. Map. Original woodcut print with printed color.. Page measures 16 3/4" x 22". 1511. This rare Ptolemaic map of Central Asia features the regions east of the Caspian Sea with northern India and western China. Includes Scythia, Tajikistan, Xinjiang Uygur Zizhiqu (China), Kyrgyzstan. Geographic features include the Ganges and the Himalayas. Relief is beautifully rendered pictorially with places and natural features labeled. The margin includes notes on climate and latitude. The unusual perspective of the geographical and topographical elements is the highlight of these great map and the rugged terrain is wonderfully suited to the medium of woodcutting. This map, one of the earliest obtainable maps of the region, was published in Sylvanus' "Claudii Ptholemaei Alexandrini liber Geographicae", and is one of the earliest to exhibit printed color. Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477, and Sylvanus followed not long after with his own edition in 1490 and again in 1511. Sylvanus was the first publisher to include updated information to the original maps. This map is in very good condition. Originally printed on two sheets, here joined on verso. Minor foxing and offsetting with minor creasing in top margin over the centerfold. A beautiful example of this rare map.

        SUMMA angelica de casibus co[n]scientiae correcta s[ecundu]m primum exemplar.

      Imp. Nicolaum Wolff. Lugduni (Lyon), 1511 - . 20,7 cm. [15], CCCLXVIII hojas (sign. 2a-2b8, a-z8 [a-s8, t6, v10, x-z8], [et]8, [cum]8, [rum]8, A-U8). Letra gótica, texto a dos columnas. Friso xilográfico en hoja I, capitulares. Enc. en piel sobre tabla, deslucida y con pequeñas pérdidas en lomo y plano anterior, restos de antiguos cierres, cortes rotulados. Leve señal de óxido en margen interno, sin afectar al texto. Notas y señales marginales antiguas en algunas hojas. Ex-libris manuscrito de Francisco Díaz, capellán de San Luis de Villagarcía. Anotaciones manuscritas en guardas anterior y posterior. Ejemplar falto de la portada; las hojas 149-150 traspuestas entre las 146-147. * El impresor y la fecha constan en recto de h. CCCLXVIII. La portada, de la que nuestro ejemplar está falto, era a dos tintas y presentaba la marca tipográfica del editor, Jacques Huguetan (1505-1544) junto con una nota que aclaraba que la obra podía encontrarse en sus establecimientos de París y Lyon. Aunque la primera signatura que encontramos es 2a4, al comienzo sólo falta la portada, puesto que el cuaderno consta de siete páginas de las ocho que debería tener según el registro. Lo hemos corroborado consultando un ejemplar digitalizado de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid que presenta la misma particularidad en la signatura pero que además conserva la portada. Angelo Carletti (1411-1495), bautizado como Antonio cuando nació en Chivasso, en el Piamonte, fue un franciscano doctorado en derecho civil y canónico por la universidad de Bolonia. Ejerció como senador en su tierra antes de dedicarse por completo a la tarea evangelizadora. Dicen que en 1520 Lutero quemó, junto a la Summa de Santo Tomás, la Summa Angelica de Angelo de Chivasso por considerarla "más que diabólica". La "Suma de los casos" fue, junto a la Summa silvestrina de Silvestre de Prieras, el código medieval de derecho canónico que mayor presencia tuvo a lo largo del siglo XVI. Se enmarca en un género práctico (e influyente) del ámbito canónico que, aunque pueda parecer más religioso que jurídico, alcanzó una gran importancia en cuanto a la divulgación y la aplicación del ius commune. No en el catálogo online de la Biblioteca Nacional de Francia. derecho canónico, suma de casos [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Decretalium liber accuratissime emendatus.

      Basel, J. Amerbach, J. Petri & J. Froben, 1511.. Folio. 10 nn. Bl., 336 num. Bl., 24 nn. Bl. (davon das 6. weiß). Mit großer Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf dem Titel u. 3 großen Textholzschnitten. Blindgeprägter Schweinsleder d. Zt. über Holzdeckeln.. Sehr schöner und sauberer zweispaltiger Druck, durchgehend in rot und schwarz, wobei der Text durch die in etwas kleinerer Type gesetzten Kommentare eingerahmt wird. Die Basler Drucker-, Verlags- und Buchhandelsgemeinschaft Amerbach/Petri/Froben gab im selben Jahr und in gleicher Ausstattung auch das Decretum Gratiani, den Liber decretalium sextus Bonifatii VIII., die Constitutiones Clementinae und Extravagantes Johannis XXII. heraus und lieferte damit die erste vollständige und für längere Zeit letzte im deutschsprachigen Raum nach 1500 gedruckte Ausgabe des Corpus Iuris Canonici. Für den Druck waren Amerbach und Froben zuständig, während Petri sich vor allem um das Verlagsgeschäft kümmerte. Der mit Reuchlin befreundete Amerbach war einer der bedeutendsten frühen Buchdrucker nicht nur Basels. Von 1478 bis zu seinem Tode 1513 druckte er u.a. "glossierte lateinische Foliobibeln, wissenschaftliche Folioausgaben der Kirchenväter, der Scholastiker, antiker Klassiker und zeitgenössischer Humanisten in höchster Qualität" (LGB I, 77). - Mit der großartigen auf den Druckort Basel bezogenen Druckermarke des Monogrammisten 'Meister DS': das von einem Basilisken gehaltene Basler Stadtwappen (vgl.

Der dritte Holzschnitt stammt von Urs Graf (Monogramm an der Stirnseite des Baldachins) und zeigt Papst Gregor IX. bei der Entgegennahme des Liber decretalium aus den Händen seiner Rechtsgelehrten und Theologen. Er wurde auch für die anderen Teile des Corpus Iuris Canonici verwendet, wo derselbe Holzschnitt dann jeweils einen anderen Papst vorzustellen hat (vgl. Muther 1290 u. Taf. 220). - Beschabt und etwas fleckig, einige Wurmstiche, Schließen fehlen. Etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig, stellenw. mit leichtem Wasserrand im Kopfsteg.

        Comoediae

      1511. PLAUTUS, Titus Macchus. Comoediae. Commentary by Bernardus Saracenus and Giovanni Pietro Valla. 228, "189" [i.e., 89], [1 blank] ff. Text in roman type with commentary surround, a few passages in Greek type, title in gothic type within fine woodcut Renaissance border decorated with putti, grotesques, and a procession of classical sea figures, full-page woodcut of a theater, 316 small woodcut illustrations of scenes from the comedies, assembled from smaller blocks (including many repeats), the characters' names printed in roman type inset in banners in the block; a variety of fine white-on-black floriated initials and small border cuts. Venice: Lazarus de Soardis, 14 August 1511. BOUND WITH: OVIDIUS NASO, Publius. Epistolae Heroides. Commentary by Antonius Volscus and Ubertinus Clericus. Parma: Octavianus Saladus and Franciscus Ugoletus, 15 May 1517. Collation: aa6 a-m8 n10; [6], 106 ff. Text with commentary surrounding, title within fine woodcut border, large woodcut illustration of Ovid and the two commentators, 22 small woodcut illustrations in the text, each with three scenes, printer's sun device at end. Together 2 works in one volume, folio, 311 x 207 mm, bound in contemporary blind-tooled Italian brown calf over pasteboard, sides paneled with triple (two thin, one thick) fillets, two borders of different foliate rolls enclosing two squares each composed of a floral roll around a central lozenge, sewn on three double cords, spine tooled with triple fillets to a saltire design. An extremely fine composite volume bringing together two early Italian illustrated editions of classical texts, preserved in its original Italian blind-tooled binding. Plautus: First fully illustrated edition of Plautus' comedies, second edition with the commentaries of Saracenus and Valla. Lost during the Middle Ages, 20 comedies, plus one fragment, of the 150 plays attributed to Plautus were rediscovered during the Renaissance and widely translated, influencing Shakespeare and later Molière. Filled with jokes, puns, alliteration and often rowdy word-play, bordering on musical comedy with their consistent use of song and recitative, Plautus' plays were free adaptations from the slightly earlier Greek "New Comedy," a pure comedy of manners using stock characters and turns of plot. Plautus' "flow of wit and vigour of language" revived the genre and account for his "supreme popularity on the Roman stage" (Oxford Companion to the Theatre). His surviving plays still provide almost the only extant evidence for spoken Latin during the 3rd and 2nd century B.C. The illustrations of this edition provide some of the earliest visual testimony to Renaissance performance practice. Commissioned by the printer Lazzaro de'Soardi for his 1497 edition of Terence, the striking full-page woodcut of a "coliseum or theatre" unusually depicts the stage and circular seating area from the actors' point of view, showing on either side the curtained compartments from which the players emerge. Prince d'Essling, the eminent scholar of early Venetian book illustration, considered this woodcut among the finest work of the time. Showing from two to six characters, the charming text illustrations are composed of separate small blocks of figures, trees and the same curtained doorways as those depicted in the large theatre cut. This manner of assembling cuts was first used by the Strasbourg printer Johann Grüninger for his 1496 editions of Terence, and seems to be associated with theatre in early Italian book illustration. It is a graphic device that is particularly appropriate for Plautus, whose plays were built up from a variety of stock plots, incidents, scenes, characters and passages of dialogue taken from a hodge-podge of different sources. (Mortimer notes that "there was a certain amount of adjustment of blocks at press," and individual copies vary in the blocks used for the illustrations.) This copy has the first state of the title and its conjugate leaf (aa1.10): the title is found either in a longer version printed in Gothic type, as here, or in roman type and considerably shortened, as in the Hofer copy at Harvard. The editors' dedicatory epistles on the title verso also differ in the two states, and the conjugate aa10 was reset, with several variants of spelling, some described by Mortimer, who states that the "roman-title setting" is more accurate. Ovid: Rare and beautiful edition of Ovid's Heroides. Ovid's elegiac letters written from the heroines of legend and history to their lovers read like dramatic monologues, and the woodcut illustrations in this edition are similar to those of the Plautus in their three-part format, showing the characters of each poem engaged in different actions, as if scenes from a play. Like the cuts of the Plautus, the illustrations of this edition of Ovid exemplify the conservation and repeated reuse of woodblocks in the first century of printing, passed from one printer to another throughout several decades, for use in often unrelated editions. The text illustrations were previously used by the Venetian printer Tacuino's 1501 and 1512 editions of Ovid. The marvelous title border with stylized dolphins is one of the most attractive and frequently imitated woodcuts of the 16th-century book. First recorded in a 1511 edition of Vitruvius printed by Tacuino in Venice, it may have been used previously in editions now lost. "There are a number of variations on this dolphin composition, and… it was one of the most influential pieces of ornamentation of the sixteenth century" (Mortimer, p. 755). Countless copies, some close, as here, others either more crudely cut or diverging stylistically from the original model, appeared from presses all over Italy during the next few years, and its influence extended as far as France, Switzerland and Germany. This edition is exceptionally rare: other than the Modena copy listed by Sander we can trace only one other copy, at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. No copies are listed in RLIN, OCLC, COPAC, or Edit-16. PROVENANCE: contemporary inscriptions on lower endleaves [regarding binding?]. Petrus Buoninsegnus, Siena 1814, typographic booklabel (examples of this bookplate are known with different dates, e.g. 1802). Marginal dampstaining to first and last few leaves, some discreet paper repairs to outer page edges at end and occasionally elsewhere, tear in leaf i7 of the Ovid; binding rubbed in places and with a few small wormholes, otherwise a fresh copy. I. Adams P-1481; Essling 1724; Sander 5748; Harvard/Mortimer Italian 387. II. Sander 5279.

        Significance of Electromagnetic Potentials in the Quantum Theory" AND "Further Considerations on Electromagnetic Potentials in the Quantum Theory" in Physical Review Volume 115 (3) Aug. 1, 1959, pp. 485-491 AND Volume 123 (4) August 15, 1961, pp. 1511-1524

      - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE FIRST TWO PAPERS ON THE AHARANOV-BOHM EFFECT, the assertion that a that a magnetic field affects the quantum properties of an electron in a way that is forbidden by classical physics. In the first paper they write, "?contrary to the conclusions of classical mechanics, there exist effects of potentials on charged particles, even in the region where all the fields (and therefore the forces on the particles) vanish" (PR 115, 1959).The American physicist David Bohm, and his Israeli graduate student Yakir Aharonov discovered "a quantum phenomenon in which a particle is effected by electromagnetic fields even when traveling through a region of space in which both electric and magnetic field are zero" (Kregar, Aharonov-Bohm, 1). More specifically, their work demonstrated that "an electrically charged particle is affected by an electromagnetic field, despite being confined to a region in which both the magnetic field and electric field are zero. The underlying mechanism is the coupling of the electromagnetic potential with the complex phase of a charged particle's wavefunction" (Wikipedia).In the 1961 paper, Aharonov and Bohm extended their prediction to include the sources of potentials quantum-mechanically, and confirm the results obtained in their first paper. CONDITION & DETAILS: Two first editions, both in original wraps. Lancaster: American Physical Society. Slight wear and light creasing at the edges of the wraps. Very good condition.

        Eigenh. Berichtschreiben mit U.

      Sibenik, 15. VIII. 1511. - ½ S. Italienische und lateinische Renaissance-Kursive in brauner Tinte auf feinem Bütten (Anrede lateinisch, Text italienisch mit lat. Einsprengseln). Wasserzeichen einem Hammer mit Amboß ähnlich. Rückseitig Adresse und papiergedecktes Siegel Venedigs (Markuslöwe). Folio (320 x 220 mm). Als "Capitano" von Sebenico an den Rat der Zehn von Venedig, unter dessen Herrschaft die dalmatinische Stadt seit 1412 stand, zur Abfassungszeit im Spannungsfeld zwischen Ungarn und Osmanen. Emilianus sieht eine lokale Revolte ("scandalo") aufziehen, über die er dem Rat bereits berichtet habe. Sein "cancellier" ermittle "con ogni dexterita e secretezza". Er hoffe auf Unterstützung des weisesten Rates, "perche altramente io credo la total ruina, e desolatione di questa terra, ne si trova alcun che veramente mi tema, perche i vede io non haver forza alcuna". Die "insolenti" hätten "l'animo de dir e far quel li piace". Dies mißfalle zwar "assai homeni da ben", keiner aber wolle "contrastare cum questi che sono facti quodamodo signori di questa cita". Alle sähen voraus, daß ein Funken das Pulver zur Explosion bringen würde: "el piccol mala da principio col tempo si fa irremediabile, nec plura". - Tatsächlich gelang es dem Rebellenführer Juraj Prokic nur Tage später, die Stadt Sibenik einzunehmen. Der gegen die venezianische Adelsherrschaft gerichtete Bürgeraufstand, bereits im Vorjahr unter der Führung von Matija Ivanic auf der Insel Hvar ausgebrochen, wurde 1512 von Sebastian Zustignan (Giustiniani) grausam niedergeschlagen; Ende 1514 beendete eine Flotte von 15 venezianischen Kriegsgaleeren die kroatische Bürgererhebung endgültig. - In den Falten und Rändern etwas gebräunt bzw. angestaubt, sonst wohlerhalten. Volltranskription beiliegend.

From Bernardus Sylvanus's 'Claudii Ptholemaei Alexandrini liber Geographicae.', published in Venice in 1511. 'The editor - according to his apologia in the introduction - deliberately decided to amend the construction of Ptolemy's maps to take account of modern discoveries. This bold step, needless to say, met with only partial success principally because Sylvanus relied on already out-dated information, or felt unable to depart radically from long-standing geographical conceptions.

        Historia de bello Judaico, sceptri sublatione, Judaeorum dispersione, et Hierosolimitano excidio

      Joss. Badius, Paris 1511 - Historia de bello Judaico, sceptri sublatione, Judaeorum dispersione, et Hierosolimitano excidio. (Translated) S. Ambrosius, Ed. Jacques Lefèvre d'Etaples, Michael Hummelberg et Josse Bade ~ A Paris, J. Badius Ascensius, 1510-1511 ~ In-fol., post-incunable, LXXVII feuillets chiffrés, 10 feuillets non chiffrés. Reliure plein vélin estampé richement orné, première édition très rare. Colophon fol. LXXVII Liber V (Finis Rurfus Inedibus Afcenfianisad Calendas Ianuarias M.D.XI.). Selon Renouard, « cette adaptation latine du « De Bello Judaico » de Flavius Josephe (c.37-c.100) fut faite vers 367-374 par un auteur anonyme. Une erreur du copiste qui a sans doute confondu Josippus et Hegesippus est à l¿origine du nom. » Cette version fut très peu diffusée car elle donne le peuple juif responsable de la mort du Christ, mort qu¿il paiera par la destruction de Jérusalem. Badius donnera une nouvelle édition 2 ans plus tard (30 décembre 1511 ¿ Renouard, Badius, II, 488) et une autre en 1524. Cette première édition de 1510 se trouve, en France, à la Mazarine et à la bibliothèque de Chartres, d¿après Renouard, et aussi Deventer, Gand, Genève. (décompte 1908) ¿ Autres exemplaires localisés à ce jour (2009) : BM Toulouse ¿ Poitiers ¿ Besançon. Friedlaender library, part II, 2001, n°343. Adams H-144. Moreau, Inventaire chronologique des éditions parisiennes du XVIe siècle, I, 1510, 97. D¿abord élevé chez les frères de la vie commune à Gand, Josse Bade poursuivit ses études à Louvain puis en Italie, où il fut l¿élève de Battista Guarino et brièvement de Philippe Béroalde l¿ancien. Il enseigna à Valence et à Lyon et commença à publier (notamment ses Sylvae morales) chez le libraire Jean Treschel, dont il devint le correcteur puis l¿associé. En 1499, il s¿installa à Paris et à partir de 1503 à son propre compte sans doute avec l¿aide du libraire Jean Petit. Il poursuivit ses activités d¿éditeur scientifique tout en imprimant. Son atelier était le rendez-vous des humanistes. Gravitait autour de son atelier tout un cercle de collaborateurs (Bérauld, Dubois), les Ascensiani. Il entretenait par ailleurs des relations avec la plupart des grands humanistes européens. Josse Bade édita durant toute sa vie les classiques latins, en fournissant des commentaires. Dès 1500, parurent ses commentaires familiers sur les épîtres, les satires et l¿art poétique d¿Horace dont des fragments avaient déjà paru dans les Sylvae morales, la première édition des épîtres date d¿octobre, celle des satires a dû la précéder. L¿ensemble de ces commentaires d¿Horace est réuni en 1503 (avec ceux d¿Antonio Mancinelli). On trouve déjà dans les éditions de Josse Bade, outre les gloses d¿Acron, Porphyrion et Mancinelli, des annotations d¿Alde Manuce, et de M. Bonfini (dans l¿édition de1519). En 1543, sont ajoutées les annotations d¿Henri Glarean, en 1546, celles de Parrhasius, d¿Erasme, Politien, Sabellicus, de Cælius Rhodiginus, de Pio, de Crinitus, de Robortello, etc., dans une sorte de processus additionnel qui réunit l¿aréopage humaniste le plus large et le plus européen. L¿anticaire Suisse Daniel Good attribue ce livre à Hegesippus (¿¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿) (c. 110 ¿ c. April 7, 180 AD[1]), was a Christian chronicler of the early Church who may have been a Jewish convert and certainly wrote against heresies of the Gnostics and of Marcion. The date of Hegesippus is insecurely fixed by the statement of Eusebius that the death and apotheosis of Antinous (130) occurred in Hegesippus' lifetime and that he came to Rome under Pope St. Anicetus (Bishop of Rome, ca 175-189) and wrote in the time of Pope St. Eleuterus. Eusebius says that St. Hegesippus was a convert from Judaism, learned in the Semitic languages and conversant with the oral tradition and customs of the Jews, for he quoted from the Hebrew, was acquainted with the Gospel of the Hebrews[8] and with a Syriac Gospel, and he also cited unwritten traditions of the Jews.

        Claudii Ptholemaei Alexandrini liber Geographiae cum tabulis et universali figura

      Venice: Jacobus Pentius de Leucho, 1511. THE FIRST CORDIFORM MAP AND ONLY THE SECOND WORLD MAP TO DEPICT AMERICA Folio, first Venetian edition, translated by Jacobus Angelus, edited by Bernardus Sylvanus of Eboli, title printed in red text (in double column) and 28 full-sheet woodcut maps printed in red and black, all but the last printed on both recto and verso, the last being the world map by Sylvanus, woodcut diagrams in the text, spaces for initials with guide letters. Nineteenth-century limp vellum, in modern cloth chemese and morocco-backed slipcase Provenance: Tross; Samuel Latham Mitchell Barlow, bookplate; long autograph inscription by Henry Harrisse (who acted as Barlow's bibliographical advisor) References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 55; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 32. The celebrated 1511 edition of Ptolemy's Geography represents a major stride in the intertwined histories of cartography and of printing technology. Bernardus Sylvanus was one of the first to produce a version of the Geography that sought to bring Ptolemy up to date rather than simply to reconstruct the ancient scholars maps. His Venice edition of Ptolemy was, therefore, the first to sound a rallying cry that would ultimately inspire later mapmakers to bring the science of cartography into the modern era. Sylvanus's version consists of twenty-eight maps as opposed to the canonical twenty-seven described by Ptolemy, the additional item being his "modern" representation of the world. The maps are among the earliest known examples of two-color printing in cartography, with the major place names in red, lesser ones in black. The large cordiform (or heart-shaped) map of the world is the earliest of its kind, and it was only the second map included in an edition of Ptolemy to show America, after Ruysch (see above, n. 3). Sylvanus, however, was less thorough in his nomenclature than his predecessor, identifying, for example, only three names on continental Europe ("magna germa," "Italia," "dalma") and labeling the New World as "Terra Sanctae Crucis" but signaling no additional place-names. The summary nature of Sylvanus's map also extends to the other side of the world, as the eastern coastline of Asia is left largely open and thus hypothetical. At the same time, Sylvanus's map is particularly striking aesthetically in light of its unusual chromatic contrasts, the curvilinear projection with flamboyantly undulating lines of longitude and latitude, the graphic prominence of rivers and stylized mountain ranges, as well as decorative elements including the wind-heads that surround the borders. When Sylvanus published his Ptolemy edition, Venetian printers had not yet begun to compete with their counterparts in Florence and northern Europe in the production of cartographic material, despite the fact that Venice was then the dominant European commercial port. Sylvanus's Ptolemy remained an early and isolated signal of the prominence that Venetian publishers would eventually claim much later in the sixteenth century.. Book.

        Quarta Europae Tabula.

      1511 - Venice, 1511. Woodcut on two sheets conjoined, printed area 370 x 480mm. A rare map of Germany, from Sylvanus's edition of Ptolemy's Geography. Having many names printed in red makes it one of the first examples of two-colour printing, achieved by printing the sheet twice. It is also what Shirley calls 'an isolated example of Venetian cartographic enterprise', forty years before Gastaldi's version of Ptolemy. It was never reissued. As the maps were printed on both sides of the sheet, this has half of the two maps of Austria and France on the reverse.

        Duodecima et ultima Asiae tabula

      Venedig, J. Pentius de Leucho, 1511. 37,5 : 37,5 cm.. Karrow, R.W. (16 c.) 75/54. - Frühe, in Rot und Schwarz gedruckte Holzschnittkarte von Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Aus der Ptolemaeus Ausgabe 'Claudii Ptholemaei Alexandrini liber Geographicae ...' von Bernardus Sylvanus, auch bekannt als Bernardo Silvano von Eboli, welche 1511 in Venedig gedruckt wurde. Sylvanus schuf eine einzigartige Mischung aus klassischer und moderner Information in den Karten für seine Ptolemaeus Ausgabe, wobei er die Ptolemaeus Liste der Provinzen und Städten den modernen geographischen Umrissen der Küsten, Flüssen und Bergen anpasste. Die Karte ist in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt, einem der frühesten Beispiele für einen Zweifarbdruck. Rückseitig mit der rechten Hälfte der Indienkarte mit dem Chinesischen Meer und Südost Asien, betitelt 'Undecima Asiae Tabula'. - Auf zwei Blättern gedruckt und zusammengefügt, Kritzeleien von alter Hand in Tinte, sehr gutes Exemplar. - Early woodcut map of Ceylon / Sri Lanka printed in red and black. From Bernardus Sylvanus also known as Bernardo Silvano of Eboli Ptolemy edition 'Claudii Ptholemaei Alexandrini liber Geographicae...', printed 1511 in Venice. Sylvanus created a unique hybrid of Classical and modern information on his maps for his 1511 edition. He fitted Ptolemy's list of provinces, towns, as they existed in the Classical period to the modern geographical outline of the coasts, rivers, and mountains. The map have been printed in two colours - black and red, one of the earliest examples of two colour printing. Each of the map sheets of Sylvanus printed on both sides, so halves of two different maps are on the back side of this map. As a result, Sylvanus maps are very rare on the market and certain maps virtually never appear on the market, where they appeared on the verso of maps which were more heavily soughtafter by collectors. In this case, verso right half shows the map of India beyond the Ganges with the description of the Chinese Sea with Southeast Asia, titled 'Undecima Asiae Tabula'. - Printed on two leaves which have been rejoined, some scribble in ink by an old hand, very good conditions.

      Sibenik, 15. VIII. 1511.. ½ S. Italienische und lateinische Renaissance-Kursive in brauner Tinte auf feinem Bütten (Anrede lateinisch, Text italienisch mit lat. Einsprengseln). Wasserzeichen einem Hammer mit Amboß ähnlich. Rückseitig Adresse und papiergedecktes Siegel Venedigs (Markuslöwe). Folio (320 x 220 mm).. Als "Capitano" von Sebenico an den Rat der Zehn von Venedig, unter dessen Herrschaft die dalmatinische Stadt seit 1412 stand, zur Abfassungszeit im Spannungsfeld zwischen Ungarn und Osmanen. Emilianus sieht eine lokale Revolte ("scandalo") aufziehen, über die er dem Rat bereits berichtet habe. Sein "cancellier" ermittle "con ogni dexterita e secretezza". Er hoffe auf Unterstützung des weisesten Rates, "perche altramente io credo la total ruina, e desolatione di questa terra, ne si trova alcun che veramente mi tema, perche i vede io non haver forza alcuna". Die "insolenti" hätten "l'animo de dir e far quel li piace". Dies mißfalle zwar "assai homeni da ben", keiner aber wolle "contrastare cum questi che sono facti quodamodo signori di questa cita". Alle sähen voraus, daß ein Funken das Pulver zur Explosion bringen würde: "el piccol mala da principio col tempo si fa irremediabile, nec plura". - Tatsächlich gelang es dem Rebellenführer Juraj Prokic nur Tage später, die Stadt Sibenik einzunehmen. Der gegen die venezianische Adelsherrschaft gerichtete Bürgeraufstand, bereits im Vorjahr unter der Führung von Matija Ivanic auf der Insel Hvar ausgebrochen, wurde 1512 von Sebastian Zustignan (Giustiniani) grausam niedergeschlagen; Ende 1514 beendete eine Flotte von 15 venezianischen Kriegsgaleeren die kroatische Bürgererhebung endgültig. - In den Falten und Rändern etwas gebräunt bzw. angestaubt, sonst wohlerhalten. Volltranskription beiliegend.

        Kanzleibrief mit Unterschrift ("Carl"), 1 Seite, in-4, Schloss Ambras, 25. 12. 1600.

      . In Geldangelegenheiten an den Bankier Marx (Marcus) Fugger, Freiherr zu Kirchberg und Weißenhorn, in Augsburg. "Von Gottes genaden Carl Marggraff des hey: Rö: Reichs Zu Burgaw, Landtgraue Zu Nellenburg ... Wie Wir Euch, wegen das Ir Vnns auf dißmal mit dem begerten anlehen niht wilfahren künden, so wol der von Euch in Euerem schreiben an Vnnß vom 26. pass. eingefüerten, alß auch von dem Vessten unserm Pfleger zu Vilß undt liben getreuen Hannß Thomasen von Triembach, Vnnß gehorsam angefüegten erheblichen Vrsachen, Zu genüegen für entschuldigt halten.

". Adressblatt mit gedecktem Siegel. Oben geringfügig beschnitten, Schrift etwas blass.. Bemerkenswerter Beleg für die enge Verflechtung zwischen den Habsburgern und den Fuggern, denen bereits Kaiser Maximilian ausgedehnte Landstriche in Vorderösterreich verpfändet hatte und die hier auch Herrschaftsrechte beanspruchten. 1511 wurde die Familie in den Adelsstand erhoben; sie ermöglichte Karl V. 1519 seine Wahl zum Kaiser, doch konnte dieser seine immensen Schulden nur teilweise zurückzahlen und brachte damit das bedeutendste Bankhaus des Frühkapitalismus in erhebliche Schwierigkeiten; erst Marx Fugger (1564-1614), dem 1598 die Geschäftsführung der Gesellschaft übertragen wurde und der auch kaiserlicher Rat sowie Präsident des Reichskammergerichtes zu Speyer war, konnte das Unternehmen wieder konsolidieren. Karl, der letzte Markgraf von Burgau, lebte seit 1597 auf Ambras, später in Günzburg; er war mit den von seinem Vater Ferdinand II. angehäuften Schulden erheblich belastet. Zehn Wochen nach der Abfassung unseres Briefes heiratete er Sibylle von Jülich-Kleve-Berg, die jüngste Tochter Herzog Wilhelm V. des Reichen.

        Die Beschneidung Christi" (The Circumcision of Christ)

      (Germany, c. 1511). Woodcut measures 12 1/4 by 9 inches, in a handsome 18 1/2 by 15 1/4-inch frame. This original woodcut print by one of the masters of the Northern Renaissance is part of a series of illustrations depicting scenes from The Life of the Virgin. According to Meder, this separate print was made after the 1511 Latin text edition of The Life of the Virgin. The print’s paper bears the fischblase (fish bladder) watermark, which indicates that the print dates to the sixteenth century; this is Meder's state e. In “The Circumcision,” a sorrowful Mary watches as Christ, her child, undergoes the sacred rite. A man carrying a tall, braided candle stands on the left side, while Mary and the crowd of people in attendance fill the right side of the temple nave. Dürer’s signature monogram is incorporated into the design, located on a slate in the bottom right of the scene. Dürer is known for his masterful, detailed wood engraving, and is recognized as one of the first European landscape artists. A few faint crease marks present. A rare, extremely fine example of the artist’s virtuosic technique.

        Comoediae. Commentary by Bernardus Saracenus and Giovanni Pietro Valla. [Bound With] Epistolae Heroides. Commentary by Antonius Volscus and Ubertinus Clericus

      Venice [and] Parma: Lazarus de Soardis [and] Octavianus Saladus and Franciscus Ugoletus, 14 August 1511 [and] 15 May 1517. First fully illustrated edition of Plautus' comedies, second edition with the commentaries of Saracenus and Valla. A rare and beautiful edition of Ovid's Heroides, other than the Modena copy listed by Sander we can trace only one other copy, at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. The Plautus with text in roman type with commentary surround, a few passages in Greek type, title in gothic type within fine woodcut Renaissance border decorated with putti, grotesques, and a procession of classical sea figures, full-page woodcut of a theater, 316 small woodcut illustrations of scenes from the comedies, assembled from smaller blocks (including many repeats), the characters' names printed in roman type inset in banners in the block; a variety of fine white-on-black floriated initials and small border cuts. The Ovid text with commentary surrounding, title within fine woodcut border, large woodcut illustration of Ovid and the two commentators, 22 small woodcut illustrations in the text, each with three scenes, printer's sun device at end. folio, (311 x 207 mm) , bound in contemporary blind-tooled Italian brown calf over pasteboard, sides paneled with triple (two thin, one thick) fillets, two borders of different foliate rolls enclosing two squares each composed of a floral roll around a central lozenge, sewn on three double cords, spine tooled with triple fillets to a saltire design. 228, "189" [i.e., 89], [1 blank] ff.; Collation: aa6 a-m8 n10; [6], 106 ff. Marginal dampstaining to first and last few leaves, some discreet paper repairs to outer page edges at end and occasionally elsewhere, tear in leaf i7 of the Ovid; binding rubbed in places and with a few small wormholes, otherwise a fresh copy. An extremely fine composite volume bringing together two early Italian illustrated editions of classical texts, preserved in its original Italian blind-tooled binding. Plautus: First fully illustrated edition of Plautus' comedies, second edition with the commentaries of Saracenus and Valla. Lost during the Middle Ages, 20 comedies, plus one fragment, of the 150 plays attributed to Plautus were rediscovered during the Renaissance and widely translated, influencing Shakespeare and later Molière. Filled with jokes, puns, alliteration and often rowdy word-play, bordering on musical comedy with their consistent use of song and recitative, Plautus' plays were free adaptations from the slightly earlier Greek "New Comedy," a pure comedy of manners using stock characters and turns of plot. Plautus' "flow of wit and vigour of language" revived the genre and account for his "supreme popularity on the Roman stage" (Oxford Companion to the Theatre). His surviving plays still provide almost the only extant evidence for spoken Latin during the 3rd and 2nd century B.C. The illustrations of this edition provide some of the earliest visual testimony to Renaissance performance practice. Commissioned by the printer Lazzaro de'Soardi for his 1497 edition of Terence, the striking full-page woodcut of a "coliseum or theatre" unusually depicts the stage and circular seating area from the actors' point of view, showing on either side the curtained compartments from which the players emerge. Prince d'Essling, the eminent scholar of early Venetian book illustration, considered this woodcut among the finest work of the time. Showing from two to six characters, the charming text illustrations are composed of separate small blocks of figures, trees and the same curtained doorways as those depicted in the large theatre cut. This manner of assembling cuts was first used by the Strasbourg printer Johann Grüninger for his 1496 editions of Terence, and seems to be associated with theatre in early Italian book illustration. It is a graphic device that is particularly appropriate for Plautus, whose plays were built up from a variety of stock plots, incidents, scenes, characters and passages of dialogue taken from a hodge-podge of different sources. (Mortimer notes that "there was a certain amount of adjustment of blocks at press," and individual copies vary in the blocks used for the illustrations.) This copy has the first state of the title and its conjugate leaf (aa1.10): the title is found either in a longer version printed in Gothic type, as here, or in roman type and considerably shortened, as in the Hofer copy at Harvard. The editors' dedicatory epistles on the title verso also differ in the two states, and the conjugate aa10 was reset, with several variants of spelling, some described by Mortimer, who states that the "roman-title setting" is more accurate. Ovid: Rare and beautiful edition of Ovid's Heroides. Ovid's elegiac letters written from the heroines of legend and history to their lovers read like dramatic monologues, and the woodcut illustrations in this edition are similar to those of the Plautus in their three-part format, showing the characters of each poem engaged in different actions, as if scenes from a play. Like the cuts of the Plautus, the illustrations of this edition of Ovid exemplify the conservation and repeated reuse of woodblocks in the first century of printing, passed from one printer to another throughout several decades, for use in often unrelated editions. The text illustrations were previously used by the Venetian printer Tacuino's 1501 and 1512 editions of Ovid. The marvelous title border with stylized dolphins is one of the most attractive and frequently imitated woodcuts of the 16th-century book. First recorded in a 1511 edition of Vitruvius printed by Tacuino in Venice, it may have been used previously in editions now lost. "There are a number of variations on this dolphin composition, and… it was one of the most influential pieces of ornamentation of the sixteenth century" (Mortimer, p. 755). Countless copies, some close, as here, others either more crudely cut or diverging stylistically from the original model, appeared from presses all over Italy during the next few years, and its influence extended as far as France, Switzerland and Germany. This edition is exceptionally rare: other than the Modena copy listed by Sander we can trace only one other copy, at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. No copies are listed in RLIN, OCLC, COPAC, or Edit-16. PROVENANCE: contemporary inscriptions on lower endleaves [regarding binding?]. Petrus Buoninsegnus, Siena 1814, typographic booklabel (examples of this bookplate are known with different dates, e.g. 1802).

        La Beffa

      Xilografia, circa 1511, senza il monogramma. Magnifica prova, secondo il Meder nel secondo stato di due, dalla prima edizione della Grande Passione con il testo latino, impressa su carta vergata con filigrana ?fiore con triangolo? (Briquet 6485 databile 1471-1524), due piccole macchiette di inchiostro nella scritta latina in basso al di fuori dell?immagine, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La serie della Grande Passione è composta dal titolo e suite di undici tavole realizzate tra il 1406 ed il 1511, anno della prima edizione latina. Sette delle dodici xilografie di questa serie, sono state disegnate prima del 1500, le restanti quattro nel 1510. Già le prime sette tavole, mostrano una profonda innovazione stilistica rispetto alla contemporanea produzione grafica in Germania alla fine del quindicesimo secolo. Questo nuovo modo di disegnare e modellare, con il quale il Durer interpreta i drammatici eventi finali della vita di Cristo, ha rivoluzionato lo sviluppo della xilografia nel sedicesimo secolo. Tornando dal suo secondo viaggio in Italia (1507), influenzato dagli artisti Italiani di quel periodo, il Durer sviluppò ulteriormente e significativamente il suo modo di disegnare. Egli cominciò a concepire le forme come contrasti di luce ed ombre, e sostituì all?esagerato vigore delle linee la delicatezza del segno. Le ultime quattro tavole della Grande Passione risultano quindi stilisticamente molto differenti da quelle disegnate prima del 1500. L?armonia nelle composizioni che riuscì ad esprimere in queste, è frutto di molti anni di studio della teoria Rinascimentale di prospettiva e proporzione. Al verso timbro di collezione di K.F.F. von Nagler (Lugt 2529), del Gabinetto delle Stampe di Berlino (Lugt 1606), e timbro duplicato del The Art Institute of Chicago. Bibliogrfaia: Bartsch 4. Dimensioni 275x395.

        Die Beschneidung Christi" (The Circumcision of Christ)

      (Germany, c. 1511). Woodcut measures 12 1/4 by 9 inches, in a handsome 18 1/2 by 15 1/4-inch frame. This original woodcut print by one of the masters of the Northern Renaissance is part of a series of illustrations depicting scenes from The Life of the Virgin. According to Meder, this separate print was made after the 1511 Latin text edition of The Life of the Virgin. The print’s paper bears the fischblase (fish bladder) watermark, which indicates that the print dates to the sixteenth century; this is Meder's state e. In “The Circumcision,” a sorrowful Mary watches as Christ, her child, undergoes the sacred rite. A man carrying a tall, braided candle stands on the left side, while Mary and the crowd of people in attendance fill the right side of the temple nave. Dürer’s signature monogram is incorporated into the design, located on a slate in the bottom right of the scene. Dürer is known for his masterful, detailed wood engraving, and is recognized as one of the first European landscape artists. A few faint crease marks present. A rare, extremely fine example of the artist’s virtuosic technique.
