        Tabula Prima Asie

      Straßburg, Johannes Schott, 1513 or 1520. 38,7 : 54,0 cm.. Karrow, R.W. (16 c.) 80/20. - Frühe Holzschnitt Karte der Türkei von M. Waldseemüller aus dem Jahre 1513 (1520). Mit Zypern im Süden. Das ptolemäische Karte stammt aus der ersten sogenannten 'Modernen Atlas' des berühmtesten aller frühen sechzehnten Jahrhundert Kosmographen Martin Waldseemüller. Der Atlas - betitelt GEOGRAPHIE OPUS NOVISSIMA TRADUCTIONE E GRECORUM ARCHETYPIS - wurde von Johann Schott in Strassburg im Jahre 1513 gedruckt und enthält neben den traditionellen 27 Ptolemäischen Karten aus der Ulmer Ausgabe von 1482 auch 20 detailierte Regionalkarten, weshalb der Atlas auch als eine der bedeutendsten Ptolemaeus Ausgaben angesehen wird. 1520 entstand die zweite Auflage bei Schott, gedruckt von den gleichen Holzstöcken. Wiederaufgelegt durch Laurent Fries und Johannes Grüninger mit kleineren Karten in den Jahren 1522 und 1525. - Papier leicht gebräunt, Mittelfalte hinterlegt, etwas knittrig im Bereich der unteren Bugfalte, Einriss in der unteren rechten Ecke hinterlegt. - Early woodcut map of Türkey from M. Waldseemuller of 1513 (1520). With Cyprus in the South. This ptolemaic map comes from the first so called 'Modern Atlas' by the most famous of all early sixteenth-century cosmographers Martin Waldseemuller, since it is the first Ptolemy edition with twenty new regional maps beside the traditional twenty-seven Ptolemaic maps derived from the 1482 Ulm edition. The Atlas is titled GEOGRAPHIE OPUS NOVISSIMA TRADUCTIONE E GRECORUM ARCHETYPIS published by Johannes Schott in Strassburg 1513 and is one of the most important edition of Ptolemy Atlases. In 1520 a second edition of the atlas was printed by Schott from the same woodcut blocks. It was reissued 1522 and 1525 by Laurent Fries and Johannes Gruninger with size reduced maps. - Paper slightly age toned. Centrefold backed, little bit wrinkled at lower centrefold. Tear in lower right corner backed.

ADB XXXIX 237 ff - DBE X 143) mit Datum von den 4. Iden des Juli 1500. Es ist der umfassendste Leitfaden des Tübinger Humanisten zum brillanten Gebrauch der lat. Sprache, zum Anbringen der richt. Zitate u. zum nützl. Verwenden v. Gruß- u. Dankadressen. Bebel war - über seine fundierten Kenntnisse in den alten Sprachen hinaus - ein 'witziger Schilderer der Torheiten der Zeit, vornehmlich des Klerus, die er ohne Schonung geißelte', und hatte deshalb 1501 von Kaiser Maximilian - zum poeta laureatus gekrönt - den Lorbeer erhalten (RE aaO). Im Titel dieser erweiterten Auflage ('recognita, emendata aucta') erscheint Schürer als Drucker, im Kolophon stehen unter dem Datum - und vor der Vertrauen u. Geborgenheit ausstrahlenden Dr.-Marke (abgeb.: Re I p 259) - die Buchstaben 'T.O'. Das ist die Abkürzung von Schürers Devise: Tempus observa (Achte auf die Zeit)! - ein großartig und herrliches Wort. Drucker und Autor kannten sich vom gemeinsamen Studium 1492-1494 an der Uni Krakau. - Fortsetzung:.

      Florenz, Philipp Giunta 1513.. 8°. (16), 301 (recte: 336) Bll., (1) S. (weiß). Mit Holzschnitt-Titelumrahmung und zahlreichen Initialen, ebenfalls in Holzschnitt. Moderner Pergamenteinband mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Frühe Ausgabe im 16. Jahrhundert; vor der ersten bei Aldus. Laktanz (ca. 250 - wohl 325 n. Chr.) war afrikanischer Herkunft. Diokletian berief ihn als Rhetorik-Lehrer nach Nikomedia, wo er zum Christentum konvertierte und dieses - auch während der Verfolgungen durch den römischen Kaiser - gegen heidnische Vorstellungen verteidigte. Um 315 holte Konstantin ihn nach Trier als Lehrer für seinen Sohn Crispus. In rhetorischer Eleganz, die an der Antike geschult war, sah er ein Mittel, das Christentum attraktiv zu machen. Trotz seiner Stellung als Kirchenlehrer war er im Mittelalter als Häretiker abgelehnt, die Renaissance schätzte in ihm den großen Stilisten (Pico della Mirandola bezeichnete ihn als "Cicero christianus"). Neue Vorsätze und Spiegel. Durchgehend leicht gebräunt, wenige Bll. stärker fleckig; verschiedentlich Marginalien von alter Hand. Ein gut erhaltenes und vollständiges Exemplar dieses seltenen und gesuchten Drucks.

        Fasciculus Medicinae

      Venice: Gregorio de Gregoriis, 1513. An attractive copy with good impressions of the blocks of the first medical work to be illustrated with woodcuts. The Fasciculus Medicinae is an anthology intended for the use of students and practitioners during the Renaissance. It includes both traditional medical lore as well as more recent writings, of which the most important by far is Mondino?s Anothomia, the first modern treatise on anatomy. The outstanding feature of the work, however, "is that it includes the first printed anatomic illustrations of any kind" (G&M 363) and contains "...among the best woodcuts of the fifteenth and early sixteenth century" (Heirs of Hippocrates, p. 46). In the northern Italian style of Mantegna, to whose school they have been attributed, the woodcuts depict the Zodiac Man, the Bloodletting Man, the Planet Man, a dissection scene, the female figure with uterus, and the full-page woodcut of Petrus de Montagnana teaching. The work was first published in 1491 and went through many editions, though as a book which saw constant use in some uncommonly messy places, it is now rare. Copies in good condition with margins around the many full-page illustrations seldom appear on the market. Little is known about Ketham. A German born in Swabia, he is thought to have been Professor of Medicine and Surgery at Venice, and to have prepared this work for his students.*Waller 5175; not in Durling; Choulant pp. 115-122; Garrison & Morton 363; Cushing K58; Charles Singer, ed., The fascicula de medecina, p. 40 ff.; Histoire de la medecine et du livre medicale, p. 49 ff.; see Dibner, Heralds 122; see PMM 36 (1493/4 ed.).. Small folio [30 x 20 cm] (32) ff. Bound in reverse calf. Handful of marginal comments in an early hand.

        ADAGIORUM GERMANIAE DECORIS, CHILIADES TRES,

      - AC CENTURIAE FERE TOTIDEM. Basileae, Ioannis Frobenii, M. D. XIII. [1513] In fólio (29,5x21,5 cm) com [xlviii], 249, [i] fólios. Encadernação da época em inteira de pele sobre pastas de madeira, com ferros decorativos a seco nas pastas. Fechos metálicos. Cortes das folhas carminados. Magnifico frontispício arquitectónico gravado. Com leves picos de traça, pequenos defeitos e restauros marginais. Adagiorum contém um trabalho de recolha de provérbios alemães e da antiguidade clássica (frases e expressões escritas em língua grega com comentarios de Eramus de Rotherdão) sendo uma das obras mais populares do séc.xvi. Constituem-se como expressões de uma sabedoria intemporal redescobertas pelos autores clássicos as quais obtiveram sucesso pelo espírito do Humanismo e pela facilidade com a qual a tipografia espalhou os textos clássicos, produzindo um quadro mais completo da literatura da Antiguidade, para além do possível ou desejado no período medieval. A primeira edição, intitulada Collectanea Adagiorum, foi publicada em Paris em 1500, in 4º com cerca de 800 provérbios. Por 1508, depois de sua estadia na Itália, Erasmo expandiu a coleção (agora chamado Adagiorum chiliades ou 'Milhares de provérbios ') para mais de três mil entradas, muitos acompanhados por comentários, anotados, alguns dos quais são breves ensaios sobre temas políticos e morais. O trabalho continuou a ser expandido até a sua morte em 1536 (para um total de 4151 entradas) fruto da vasta leitura que Erasmus realizou na literatura antiga. Entre este provérbios temos: Sociedade leonina; Andar na corda bamba; Lágrimas de crocodilo; Tal pai, tal filho; O carro à frente dos bois, etc. Entre as 24 edições da BNP (Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal), esta não está presente (as mais antigas referidas pela BNP são: Estrasburgo, 1510, e Basileia, 1523). [EN] Binding: contemporary full calf on wooden boards. Blind tooled on both cover boards, and label gilt at spine. Metal clasps. Papercuts carmine colored. Superb architectural frontispiece engraved with Greek literary allegories. Slight wormed, small defects and marginal repairs. A work of recollection of German and Classical sayings (sentences and phrases written in Greek language with comentaries of Eramus of Rotherdam) is among the most popular works of the 16th Century. These are expressions of a timeless wisdom first uncovered by the classical authors. It was well succeded by the means of new Humanism and typography facililities that spread a broader range of classical texts and produced a much fuller picture of the literature of antiquity, than had been possible or desired in the medieval period. The first edition, titled Collectanea Adagiorum, was published in Paris in 1500, in a slim quarto of around eight hundred proverbs. By 1508, after his stay in Italy, Erasmus had expanded the collection (now called Adagiorum chiliades or 'Thousands of proverbs') to over three thousand items, many accompanied by richly annotated commentaries, some of which were brief essays on political and moral topics. The work, which continued to be expanded right up to his death in 1536 (to a final total of 4,151 essays) is the fruit of Erasmus' vast reading in ancient literature. Among this proverbes we have: Lion society; To walk the tightrope; Crocodile tears; Like father, like son; The cart before the horse; etc. Amongst the 24 editions at BNP (Portugal&#146;s National Library) this one is not present (the oldest refered at BNP are: Strasbourg, 1510; and Basle, 1523).

        Paulina de recta Paschae celebratione et De die passionis Domini nostri Iesu Christi

      Impressum Forosempronii Octavianum Petrutium 1513 Testo del calendario stampato in rosso e nero e numerosi capilettera incisi in legno su fondo nero. Al verso del frontespizio silografia raffigurante uno scudo alle armi di papa Leone X sormontato dalla tiara e dalle chiavi di San Pietro e sorretto da due angeli. Quattro cornici silografiche composte da quattro legni e un legno a piena pagina. Alla fine del volume grande marca tipografica Paolo di Middelburg (1445-1534), astronomo, umanista e matematico alla corte dei Montefeltro, fu canonico nella città natale, insegnò a Lovanio e a Padova. Viaggiò molto in Italia; fu vescovo di Fossombrone. Scrisse opere di matematica e di astronomia, tra cui "Paulina de recta Paschae celebratione et De die passionis Domini nostri Iesu Christi", importante per la storia della riforma del calendario. Il testo fu stampato nel 1513 da Ottaviano Petrucci da Fossombrone, l'ideatore dei caratteri mobili per la stampa della musica. Rara prima edizione del primo libro stampato a Fossombrone. Lo stampatore Ottaviano Petrucci, già attivo nei primi decenni del secolo a Venezia, trasferì nel 1513 i suoi torchi nel paese umbro, dove era nato. A Petrucci si deve il merito d?aver introdotto l?innovativo metodo di stampare le note musicali in caratteri mobili. L?autore, originario di Middleburg, fu vescovo di Fossombrone e antepose alla sua opera sette lettere, tra cui quelle indirizzate a papa Leone X e all?imperatore Massimiliano, nelle quali viene evidenziata la necessità di un?organica riforma del calendario. La pregevole silografia a piena pagina, probabilmente da attribuire, insieme alle belle cornici silografiche, a Francesco Griffo, l?incisore del famoso corsivo aldino, è formata da tre legni congiunti, nel primo è raffigurata la Vergine in gloria con il bambino in un emiciclo di Papi, il secondo e il terzo rappresentano Cristo in croce. A monumentum typographicum of Italian printing, the first book printed in the little Umbrian center of Fossombrone. The book, concerning the Calendar?s reform, is adorned by beautiful woodcut borders and historiated capitals, probably cut by Francesco Griffo, the cutter of the famous Aldine Italic type Folio (cm 29,8x20) pp. 395 carte non numerate Rilegatura in mezza pergamena (Half vellum binding) Molto buono (Very Good)

        In topica Aristotelis commentarii [Graece].

      [Venice, House of Aldus and Andrea of Asola, September 1513]. Folio. A lovely late 17th or early 18th century full calf, beautifully re-backed to style with raised bands and elegant blindstamped ornametations. Boards with lovely blindstamp-decorations, in style constituting a forerunner of the Cambridge-style binding. A very nice, clean, and fresh copy with the often lacking final leaf with the large woodcut Aldine anchor-dolphin device to verso. Woodcut printer's device to title-page as well. Without the blank A9 (almost always removed when bound). (4), 3-281, (3) pp.. The scarce editio princeps of Alexander of Aphrodisias' extremely influential commentary of Aristotle's "Topics", which is responsible for our understanding and utilization of this most fundamental text for the thought of mankind. Aristotle's "Topics" occupies an absolutely central place in the development of science and philosophy since Antiquity. It is this work that sets the boundaries for what we can meaningfully talk about, and even how to talk about it. Through the "topics" mankind will be able to state the true premises that form the foundation upon we build science and philosophy. Alexander's commentary on this fundamental work is the most important and influential that we have. It was of the utmost importance to Renaissance philosophy, science, scholarship and learning, and it greatly influenced the path of Aristotelian scholarship as well as almost all original thought and philosophy within this period. Alexander came to influence all reading of Aristotle in the Renaissance and with his commentary on the "Topics", he came to profoundly influence our understanding of the first principles of thought as well as the dialectical and philosophical training that is necessary for our understanding of them. Without the "topics" of Aristotle, we cannot be certain that we are discussing that which we ought to be discussing. Aristotle's "Topics" provides us with the general basis for all forms of inquiry; as he himself states: "Our treatise proposes to find a line of inquiry whereby we shall be able to reason from opinions that are generally accepted about every problem propounded to us, and also shall ourselves, when standing up to an argument that, avoid saying anything that will obstruct us." (Topica 110a18-22, in Ross' translation, Oxford, 1928). "Alexander of Aphrodisias was the leading ancient commentator on Aristotle in the Aristotelian school. He wrote around AD 200, more than five hundred years after Aristotle's death. His commentaries had an immense influence first on the Neoplatonist school and then on Medieval Philosophy in Islam and eventually in the Latin West. His commentary on "Topics" Book 1 opens the door on a major argument between the Stoics and the Aristotelians on how to think of syllogistic. He discusses how to define Aristotelian syllogistic and why it stands up against the rival Stoic theory of inference." (Richard Sorabji, Preface to Ophuijsen's Translation of Alexander's commentary, in the "Ancient Commentators on Aristotle"-series, ed. by Sorabji. p. (IX).).It is a curious but generally accepted conception that with the rise of the Renaissance came the fall of Aristotle. Whether this is actually true can be disputed, but it is a fact that with the recovery of many lost works of ancient literature, the widening of the range of classical studies and the renewed interest in Plato, Aristotle was no longer the sole authority on a huge number of fields. That this should mean a total ignorance of the teachings of Aristotle must be considered somewhat of a myth (though a very frequently repeated one), and in fact with the grand humanists of the late 15th and early 16th century, the study of Aristotle fits perfectly with the broader comprehension of scholarship. The great humanists like Ficino, Pico and Pomponazzi had not forgotten about Aristotle, and the revival of learning did not mean the neglect of the prince of philosophers. On the contrary, with the appreciation of the knowledge of Greek and the invention of the printing, works were being printed like never before, which meant that the greatest of the humanists could be acquainted with the Greek texts of Aristotle and the Greek commentaries of "The Commentator", Alexander. The present editio princeps of Alexander's commentary on the "Topics" is a prime example of this fundamental development. We here have the first printing of the interpretation of the greatest of all commentators of one of the most important works in the history of philosophy. The importance of this printing can hardly be overestimated, as it came to influence an entire generation of philosophers, humanists and thinkers. Among the wide range of thinkers of the following centuries that were profoundly influenced by Alexander's exposition of Aristotle's "Topics", we count for instance Descartes and Vico, to mention a copule.Of course Aristotle's text was also read, but it was through the interpretation of Alexander that the influence of it was most widely felt. It was Alexander who modified Aristotelian doctrine in a more naturalistic and anti-Platonic direction that was more readily acceptable for the great "modern" thinkers."With reference to those works of Aristotle which were and remained the center of instruction in logic and natural philosophy, the most important changes derived from the fact that the works of the ancient Greek commentators became completely available in Latin between the late fifteenth and the end of the sixteenth centuries and were more and more used to balance the interpretations of the medieval Arabic and Latin commentators. The Middle Ages had known their works only in a very limited selection or through quotations in Averroes. ... When modern historians speak of Alexandrism as a current within Renaissance Aristotelianism that was opposed to Averroism, they are justified in part by the fact that the Greek commentators, that is Alexander and also Themistius, Simplicius, and many others, were increasingly drawn upon for the exposition of Aristotle." (Kristeller, Renaissance Thought and its sources, 1979, p. 45)."The group of innovating "Alexandrists" who appear at the end of the century derive their name from Alexander of Aphrodisias, the best of the Greek commentators on Aristotle, whom they studied and cited; ... but the Averroists had likewise cited Alexander; his views they found discussed by the commentator himself. ... And we find strong Humanistic interests." (Randall in: Cassirer, Kristeller and Randall, The Renaissance Philosophy of Man, 1956, p. 260)."Although the ancient commentators on Aristotle left a much larger literature than that surviving from Aristotle himself, only a few of their commentaries were known to the medieval West. In the four decades after 1490, the interpretations of Alexander, Themistius, Ammonius, Philoponus, Simplicius, and other Greek commentators were added to the familiar views of Averroes, Albert and Thomas, thus stimulating new solutions to Aristotelian problems." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, Renaissance Philosophy, 1992, pp. 13)."Equally important for the continued growth of the Peripatetic synthesis was the recovery and diffusion of the Greek commentaries on Aristotle. These treatises, about ten times longer than the works they discuss, were written by pagans and Christians, Platonists and Peripatetics in late antiquity, between the second and seventh centuries in the Greek world of the Eastern Mediterranean, and then again in twelfth-century Byzantium. The most important of the two dozen commentators were Alexander of Aphrodisias, Ammonius, Simplicius, Themistius and John Philoponus. Of these five, only Alexander and Themistius were Aristotelians..." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 68).This magnificent first edition of the text was possibly reprinted in Venice, 1526 (Graesse states that it "est douteuse"). The first Latin translation followed in 1520 and appeared numerous times thereafter. Sandy II: p. (104).Graesse I: p. 69

        GEOGRAPHIE OPUS NOVISSIMA TRADUCTIONE E GRECORUM ARCHETYPIS CASTIGATISSIME PRESSUM

      Strassburg: Johann Schott, March 12, 1513.. Two parts in bound in one volume. [Title-leaf], [dedication leaf], 5-60 numbered leaves, [14 unnumbered leaves forming an index], twenty-seven woodcut "ancient" maps (26 double-page), [supplement title-leaf], twenty woodcut "modern" maps (19 double-page, the final single- page map of Lorraine printed in three colors), [15 unnumbered text leaves]. Folio, 17 3/16 x 12 inches. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century red morocco, paneled in gilt on the covers, spine simply gilt in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in gilt in the second compartment. Margins of four of the "ancient maps shaved with slight loss to the printed marginal notes [3] or the image area [1], six of the "modern" maps shaved with loss (one with loss to the marginal notes, five with loss to the image area), unobtrusive worming in lower blank margins of text leaves to H1, single worm track from B5 to the end through text and image areas, a second track from title through to G2 through text only. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell box, spine gilt. Provenance: Occasional early marginal notes in two scripts, in red or black ink; S.L.M. Barlow (sale February 1890, bought by); Alfred T. White (pencilled inscription, noting purchase). A unique copy of the first modern atlas, including two maps in early proof states. A monumental and important work, containing critical New World information, derived from the latest voyages of exploration. "The most important of all the Ptolemy editions" (Streeter), including the earliest map devoted entirely to the new world. This copy has been carefully compared with the copy in the Library of the State University of Utrecht, Holland, that was used to produce the THEATRUM ORBIS TERRARUM facsimile in 1966. The present copy shows significant variation from the Utrecht copy and from the descriptions given in the standard bibliographies. At least thirteen pages of text are in a different setting: M2 recto and verso; M3 recto and verso; [N1] recto and verso; Nii recto and verso; Niii recto; Niiii verso; Nv recto and verso; Nvi recto and verso. Perhaps more significantly, two of the maps are in an earlier state: both maps normally include both woodcut and letterpress elements. The "ancient" map of Great Britain and Ireland "Tabula Prima Europae" is without all the letterpress marginal notes and some words from within the image area ("Oceanus Germanicus" and "et Britannicus"); in addition, the letterpress words that are present are all in a different setting. The final color-printed map of Lorraine is without the letterpress colophon to the second part, which is normally printed in the margin beneath the map (the Phillips copy, number 359, also shows this variation). In addition it includes one place name ("Walde Mone") printed in red that was removed in the Utrecht version. A third intermediate issue, with the letterpress colophon and the additional place name in red, is illustrated by Bagrow in HISTORY OF CARTOGRAPHY, plate LXXV. The present copy was in the collection of noted collector Alfred T. White, and contains his pencil ownership inscription on the front fly leaf. This masterful atlas is one of the most important cartographical works ever published. Known as the first "modern" edition of Ptolemy, it is usually accepted as the most important edition of the GEOGRAPHICA.... The first part of this atlas consists of twenty-seven Ptolemaic maps, taken from the 1482 Ulm Ptolemy, or perhaps the manuscript atlas of Nicolaus Germanus upon which the Ulm Ptolemy was based. Work on the twenty maps in the Supplement began around the year 1505 by Martin Waldseemuller and Mathias Ringmann, geographers based in Saint-Dié, and was partially funded by Duke Rene of Lorraine. The accompanying text was completed a bit later, and in 1508 all of the materials for the atlas passed into the hands of two Strassburg citizens, Jacobus Eszler and Georgius Ubelin, at whose cost the work was completed in 1513. Among the twenty "modern maps" (the maps in the Supplement are labeled as "Nova" and "Moderna et Nova") which appear in this edition for the first time, "Orbis Typis Universalis" and "Tabula Terre Nova," stand as important examples of early New World cartographica. Indeed, the latter is considered the earliest map devoted entirely to the New World, and depicts the coast of American in a continuous line from the northern latitude of 55° to Rio de Cananor at the southern latitude of 35°, with about sixty places named. The other map, "Orbis Typis," depicts the outline of northeastern South America, with five names along that coast, and the islands Isabella and Spagnolla, and another fragmentary coast, as well as an outline of Greenland. The text states that the New World maps are based upon geographical information obtained from "the Admiral," possibly a reference to Vespucci, Cabral, or Columbus. The latter is actually referred to by name on the "Tabula Terre Nova" map, and is described as a Genoese sailing under command of the king of Castile. With the twenty modern maps of the Supplement, compiled from the latest available voyages, this atlas holds rightful title to being the first modern atlas of the world. The atlas also contains the first map of Lorraine, which is one of the earliest maps to be printed in color, each color produced with a separate block (black, red and green).

This copy has been carefully compared with the copy in the Library of the State University of Utrecht, Holland, that was used to produce the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum facsimile in 1966. The present copy shows significant variation from the Utrecht copy and from the descriptions given in the standard bibliographies. At least 13 pages of text are in a different setting: M2 recto and verso; M3 recto and verso; [N1] recto and verso; Nii recto and verso; Niii recto; Niiii verso; Nv recto and verso; Nvi recto and verso. Perhaps more significantly, two of the maps are in an earlier state: both maps normally include both woodcut and letterpress elements. The "ancient" map of Great Britain and Ireland `Tabula Prima Europae&#39; is without all the letterpress marginal notes and some words from within the image area (&#39;Oceanus Germanicus&#39; and &#39;et Britannicus&#39;), in addition the letterpress words that are present are all in a different setting. The final colour-printed map of Lorraine is without the letterpress colophon to the second part, which is normally printed in the margin beneath the map (the Phillips copy, number 359, also shows this variation). In addition it includes one place name (&#39;Walde Mone&#39;) printed in red that is not present in the copy at Utrecht. A third intermediate issue, with the letterpress colophon and the additional place name in red, is illustrated by Bagrow, History of Cartography, plate LXXV. The present copy was in the collection of noted collector Alfred T. White, and contains his pencil ownership inscription on the front fly leaf. This masterful atlas is one of the most important cartographical works ever published. Known as the first "modern" edition of Ptolemy, it is usually accepted as the most important edition of the Geographia. The first part of this atlas consists of twenty-seven Ptolemaic maps, taken from the 1482 Ulm Ptolemy, or perhaps the manuscript atlas of Nicolaus Germanus upon which the Ulm Ptolemy was based. Work on the twenty maps in the Supplement began around the year 1505 by Martin Waldseemüller and Mathias Ringmann, geographers based in Saint-Dié, and was partially funded by Duke René II of Lorraine. The accompanying text was completed a bit later, and in 1508 all of the materials for the atlas passed into the hands of two Strassburg citizens, Jacobus Eszler and Georgius Ubelin, at whose cost the work was completed in 1513. Among the twenty "modern maps" (the maps in the Supplement are labeled as `Nova&#39; and `Moderna et Nova&#39;) which appear in this edition for the first time, "Orbis Typis Universalis" and "Tabula Terre Nova," stand as important examples of early New World cartographica. Indeed, the latter is considered the earliest map devoted entirely to the New World, and depicts the coast of America in a continuous line from the northern latitude of 55 degrees to Rio de Cananor at the southern latitude of 35 degrees, with about sixty places named. The other map, "Orbis Typis," depicts the outline of northeastern South America, with five names along that coast, and the islands Isabella and Spagnolla, and another fragmentary coast, as well as an outline of Greenland. The text states that the New World maps are based upon geographical information obtained from "the Admiral," possibly a reference to Vespucci, Cabral, or Columbus. The latter is actually referred to by name on the "Tabula Terre Nova" map, and is described as a Genoese sailing under command of the king of Castile. With the twenty modern maps of the Supplement, compiled from the latest available voyages, this atlas can rightfully claim to be the first modern atlas of the world. It also includes the first map of Lorraine, which is one of the earliest maps to be printed in colour, each colour produced with a separate block (black, red and green).

Provenance: Copious contemporary marginal scholarly annotations in Greek and Latin; Pierre S. du Pont III (1911-1988), his sale Collection of Navigation Christie&#39;s 8th October 1991, lot 214. THE FIRST "MODERN" EDITION OF PTOLEMY AND "THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL PTOLEMY EDITIONS" (Streeter Sale I:6) The first modern atlas, prepared by Martin Waldseemuller using the translation of Mathias Ringmann. This is one of the most important editions of Ptolemy, containing many new regional maps: twenty new maps based on contemporary knowledge "unlike many of the alleged &#39;new&#39; maps produced by earlier editors, [they] contained a great deal of new information, and in nearly every case they were decided improvements over anything that had been previously offered..." ("The World Encompassed", 56), were included in addition to the traditional body of twenty-seven Ptolemaic maps derived from the 1482 Ulm edition (or possibly from the manuscript atlas of Nicolaus Germanus that served as source for the latter). Schott&#39;s edition while initiated by the most famous of all early sixteenth-century cosmographers, Martin Waldseemuller and his associate Mathias Ringmann, partly at the expense of Duke Rene of Lorraine, was brought to completion by Jacobus Eszler and Georgius Ubelin. The atlas contains THE FIRST MAP IN AN ATLAS ENTIRELY DEVOTED TO AMERICA "Tabula terre nove". Often called the "Admiral&#39;s map" after Columbus, unlike its predecessor by Peter Martyr, it shows the continental Atlantic seaboard, with a continuous coastline stretching from the mouth of the Rio de la Plata to the St. Lawrence River. Although not to scale the depicts a complete Gulf of Mexico. The island of Cuba is here named Isabella after Queen Isabella of Spain, who was funded Columbus&#39;s expedition of 1492. The first issue of Waldseemuller&#39;s map published in 1507 introduces for the first time "America" to name South America, but in this atlas issue he acknowledges Columbus&#39;s discovery with the legend: "Hec terra cum adiacentib insulis inuenta est per Columbus ianuensem ex mandato Regis Castelle" (This land with its adjacent islands was discovered by Columbus, sent by the king of Castile). The map of Lotharingia (the first map of the Duchy of Lorrain), printed in black, red and olive, is one the earliest examples of color-printing. This edition was reprinted in 1520 using the same woodcut blocks. Fairfax Murray "German" 348 and 348A; Harrisse 74; Phillips 359; Sabin 66478; Shirley 34.

        Tabula Terre Nove" from Claudii Ptolemei... Geographie opus novissima traductione e grecorum archetypis

      Strassburg: Johann Schott, 1513. THE FINEST EXAMPLE IN EXISTENCE OF MARTIN WALDSEEMULLER&#39;S MAP OF THE NEW WORLD, WITH SPECACULAR FULL ORIGINAL COLOR Woodcut: 18" x 233/4" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 31-34; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 5. The "Tabula Terre Nove" was the most important map included in Martin Waldseemüller&#39;s 1513 Ptolemaic atlas. Completed just twenty years after the discovery of America, it was without question the best representation of the New World to date. Waldseemüller noted that the map was derived from observations made by "the Admiral," generally thought to indicate Christopher Columbus. In a map of the New World completed several years before, Waldseemüller had named the new lands "America" after Amerigo Vespucci, whom he mistakenly thought of as their discoverer. In the "Tabula Terre Nove," the cartographer attempted to correct his mistake, naming it simply "Map of New Lands," but to no avail, as his original name has clearly stuck. This map has long represented to scholars and historians the best and earliest state of knowledge regarding the New World. Furthermore, this example is especially notable for having original color. Most of the surviving examples of the map - and there are very few - are uncolored, or were colored at a later time. Martin Waldseemüller, a highly accomplished student of geography, merged the science of mapmaking and the art of printing in his 1513 atlas, one of the most groundbreaking documents in the history of cartography. He intended this atlas as a new edition of Ptolemy&#39;s Geographia and, like other cartographers, dutifully paid homage to Ptolemy with twenty-seven maps in the "ancient form." Yet he added a second part to his atlas: twenty "new maps" using the innovation of a quadratic plane projection, used to create "a representation.of the world more proper to our time." He was the first to recognize the necessity of moving forward and questioning the conclusions of ancient authorities, and thereby led people to recognize geography as an evolving science, as befit a world entering the modern age. The "Tabula Terre Nove" is one example of the twenty revolutionary "new maps" in Waldseemüller&#39;s atlas, and in general one of the most important early maps of the New World.. Book.
