KARL von Österreich, Markgraf von Burgau (1560-1618), Sohn v. Ehg. Ferdinand II. und Philippine Welser
. 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 wurd … [Click Below for Full Description]

Albrecht DURER (Norimberga 1471 - 1528)
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 Rinascim … [Click Below for Full Description]

L?argomento dei primi 8 libri è la guerra tra Cesare e Pompeo, negli ultimi due v?è il racconto delle imprese d?Africa e d?Egitto.. Più che di Cesare, che egli dipinge uomo settario, avido di guerre e stragi, Lucano è fervido ammiratore di Pompeo che eleva a simbolo della libertà repubblicana. Nei suoi ottomila versi la "Farsalia" riesce opera a vero carattere storico.. e vi attinsero anche storici posteriori, tanto più che le decadi di Livio corrispondenti a questa guerra civile sono oggi perdute?. Così Diz. Opere Bompiani,III, p. 301. Ultima c. restaur. per strappi e picc. manc. (non di testo); con uniformi arross. più o meno lievi e fiorit. ma complessivam. un discreto esemplare.

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius - SYLVANUS, Bernadus.
Venice Jacobo Pentius de Leucho 1511 - Woodcut printed in red and black on two leaves, leaf split and re-joined, backed with japan on verso, several areas of loss, skilfully infilled. Dimensions (sheet): 410 by 550mm. (16 by 21.75 inches). Scarce. One of the earliest examples of two colour printing. 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.

Sylvanus, Bernardus
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
