      Ugoleto e Saladi, 1513. in - 4 (segnatura in - 8), ff. 190 n.n., bella legatura d'amatore (firmata Brugalla 1947) in marocchino blu, filetti e medaglione impressi in oro ai piatti, tagli dorati. Al titolo raffiguraz. del sole, decine di iniziali vegetali su fondo nero n.t. Seconda edizione, di assoluta rarità come la prima (Parma 1508), dedicata a Lucrezia Borgia, censita in sole otto biblioteche italiane. Uno dei primissimi romanzi della letteratura volgare italiana, composto con abbondanza di dialettalismi e latinismi, l'opera principale del Caviceo (1443 - 1511) narra le avventure e gli amori di Peregrino e di Ginevra. I protagonisti, specie l'eroina, sono quasi figure allegoriche; i viaggi e le avventure dell'eroe, che in parte ritraggono l'avventurosa vita dell'autore, riprendono il Filocolo del Boccaccio e le vicende di Fiorio e Biancofore; la figurazione dell'oltretomba ricorda alquanto l' Eneide e la Divina Commedia. Ottimo esemplare di importante e rara opera.

        Sigeberti Gemblacensis Coenobitae Chronicon ad Anno 381 ad 1113 cum Insertionibus ex Historia Galfridi & Additionibus Roberti Abbatis Montis ....

      Paris: Ioannis Petit, 1513. Editio Princeps. Hardcover. Fine. 4to. (42)pp, 164ff. Title page in black and red, and printed throughout in black and red. Extensive index at the beginning. Recent full deep blue morocco, spine in six compartments with gilt titles, handmade paper endpapers. A few notes in an old hand, some corners of the textblock worn, but no losses noted. A very good copy. Sigebert of Gembloux (ca. 1030 - 1112) was a mediaeval historian whose best known work is this Chronicle, which covers the period 381 to 1113, but with additions bringing it up to 1210. This is the first printed edition of the Chronicle, which saw many subsequent editions. The index is particularly useful. There are several entries for King Arthur, Votigern, and a long discussion on folio 16 on the apparition of the stellar dragons in Britain and Merlin's interrogation by Uther about their meaning. No doubt there are other Arthurian references we have not located. The entry in the Arthurian Encyclopedia (p. 93) suggests that Geoffrey of Monmouth may have used Sigebert's Chronicle in his own History. In Latin.

        Olympia. Pythia. Nemea. Isthmia. - CALLIMACHUS. Hymni. - DIONYSIUS. De situ orbis. - LICOPHRON. Alexandra. (Graece). (In fine, verso ultimo foglio, colophon:) Venetiis, in aedib. Aldi et Andreae Asulani Soceri, Mense Ianuario MDXIII (1513)

      Aldo, 1513. in - 8 (160x104 mm), pp. (16), 373, (1 con il colophon, manca l'ultimo f. bianco), magnifica legatura di Roger Payne (celebre legatore inglese, 1739 - 1797) in p. marocchino granata con impresa aldina attorniata da cordone impressa in oro su entrambi i piatti, riquadro a filetto oro sui medesimi, dorso a nervi con tit. oro negli scomparti, tagli dorati. Ancora aldina al tit., impresso in grande corsivo greco, spazi con lettera - guida per le iniziali. Editio princeps, splendida e rarissima, delle opere di Pindaro e di Lycophron, seconda di quelle di Callimaco e Dionysius, dedicate da Aldo all'amico fraterno e protettore Andrea Navagerio, il quale lo aveva convinto, dopo una pausa tipografica di 4 anni, a riprendere il lavoro: "sono ritornato a Venezia, l'Atene dei nostri tempi, dove, tra i tanti illustri eruditi, riconosciamo il nostro amato Musuro". Curiosa è la segnatura dei fascicoli, che Aldo indicò con numerazione araba anziché con le lettere. Pindaro (Tebe 518 - 446 a. C.) fu considerato dagli antichi il più grande tra i lirici greci, il primo dei 9 lirici del cosiddetto canone alessandrino, e dai moderni amato e imitato, influenzando in maniera determinante l'opera di autori come Goethe, Holderlin e Foscolo. Bellissimo esempl. marginoso, interamente "reglé" in rosso, con ex - libris di Syston Park.

        Tabula Moderna et Nova Italiae ac Siciliae

      1513. Rara ed importante carta della penisola, tratta dalla prima edizione della Geographie Opus Novissima Traductione e Grecorum Archetypis curata dal Waldseemuller ed edita da Johannes Schott nel 1513. L'opera è considerata come il primo atlante moderno, preparato usando la traduzione dal greco di Mathias Ringmann; si tratta di una delle più importanti edizioni del Tolomeo, contenente molte nuove mappe della regioni. Sono 20 le carte aggiunte, basate sulle nuove scoperte e conoscenze, oltre al consueto corpo di 27 carte che compongono la Geografia di Tolomeo, basate sull'atlante edito a Ulm nel 1482. Il Borri la descrive: " Nell'Italia settentrionale l'orografia risulta assai semplificata; è del tutto inesistente nelle altre parti. I monti non hanno più conformazione a placca lineare ma sono rappresentati da coni accumulati, leggermente arrotondati e con ombra a destra. Le medesime semplificazioni si riscontrano per il sistema idrografico, anch'esso inesistente al centro ed al Sud, con la sola eccezione di un breve tratto del fiume Tevere. La carta deriva da quella del Berlinghieri e perciò in essa è stata introdotta la normale orientazione, con l'eliminazione delle imperfezioni tolemaiche e con l'aggiunta dei nuovi elementi tratti dalle carte nautiche". Xilografia, scala graduata con lieve coloritura coeva, pieni margini, in straordinario stato di conservazione. Eccellente esemplare di questa rarissima carta della penisola, una delle più importanti rappresentazioni a stampa. Bibliografia: Borri p. 17, 16; Almagià p. 11b; Perini pp. 22/25. Dimensioni 574x410. "A rare and important map of the peninsula, taken from the first edition of the Geographie Opus Novissima Traductione e Grecorum, 1513. 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 were included in addition to the traditional body of twenty - seven Ptolemaic maps derived from the 1482 Ulm edition. Schott's edition was commenced 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. It 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's map"" after Columbus. The map of Lotharingia (the first map of the Duchy of Lorrain), printed in black, red and olive, is one the earliest examples of colour - printing. This edition was reprinted in 1520 using the same woodcut blocks. Borri describes this work: " In Northern Italy orographic is much more simplified and it doesn't exist in other parts. The mounts have not the linear plate form, but are depictes like a bunch of cones, lightly round with shadow on the right. Extremely simplified also the representation of the hydrographic system especially in the South. The only exception is the course of the Tiber. This map derives from Berlinghieri's and thus it shows the common orientation, the cancellation of ptolemaic errors and the addition of new elements from sea charts". Woodcut, light contemporary colour, full margins, in excellent condition. Extraordinary example of a rare map, one of the most important prints ever realized on the peninsula." Strasburgo Strasbourg Borri p. 17, 16; Almagià p. 11b; Perini pp. 22/25. Dimensioni 574x410 574 410

Collation: A-N4 O6 -(114 pp.), woodcut title border of 4 blocks, 4 full-page woodcut illustrations comprised of two illustrations in duplicate, one of which coloured by a contemporary hand, 20 small woodcuts, all but one foetal illustrations.

The work is based on the manuscripts of Soranus of Ephesus who wrote in the second century AD and the ninth-century Moschion Codex in the Royal Library at Brussels. In all probability Roesslin got his inspiration for the illustrations of the foetus in utero from the Heidelberg Codex in the Vatican Library. Martin Flach had them cut in wood by the noted Formschneider Erhard Schön and they continued to be used by Roesslin's successors until the 18th century. - - "The earliest printed textbook for midwives. It underwent over 100 editions, being used as late as 1730. For the international market Rösslin's son Eustachius Rösslin translated the book into Latin. The Latin edition was translated into English by Richard Jonas and printed by Thomas Raynalde for publication in 1540. This translation, entitled "The Byrth of Mankynde" was the first book on the subject printed in English. There were three variant editions published in 1513, each printed from different type by different printers, with title pages with different wording and different woodcut borders on their title pages. Flach's edition, the first of the three, was dated and the other two were not. Georg Klein, Eucharius Rösslin's 'Rosengarten' gedruckt im Jahre 1513 reprinted in facsimile (Munich, 1910) the second undated but 1513 edition issued in Hagenau by H. Gran. This was titled Der Swangern frawen und hebamme rosengarte. The third undated but 1513 variant was also issued by Gran in Hagenau, but with the title Der Schwangeren frawen und hebammen Rosengarten. Other bibliographical studies include Sir D'Arcy Power's article in The Library, 1927, 4 ser. 8, 1-37, subsequently reprinted in book form, and A.M.

      Strassburg Matthias Hupfuff Typen: 2c2 4 11 1513 - Zweispaltiges, 49-zeiliges Postinkunabelblatt mit einem altkoloriertem Holzschnitt (10,9 x 8 cm). Blatt gebräunt. Kleine Fehlstelle in der oberen Blattecke ohne Textverlust. Signatur 'H'. Blattgrösse: 19,5 x 28 cm. Post incunable leaf, woodcut. Sehr seltenes Postinkunabelblatt aus dem am reichsten illustrierten Druck von Hupfuff! In diesem Druck verwendet Hupfuff zahlreiche Holzschnitte aus dem Bestand des sogenannten 'Drucker des Antichrist', der um 1482 seine 'Vitas Patrum' (vgl. Artikel-Nr. 5366 und 6670) herausgab (Oliver Duntze 2007, S.49ff). Der Holzschnitt wurde mit einer Holzschnittleiste und dem Bruchstück eines Holzschnittes an die Zeilenbreite angepasst. Der Drucker des 'Antichristen' ist nur zu Beginn der 1480-iger Jahre nachweisbar. Die Wiederverwendung des hier vorliegenden Holzschnitts nach mehr als 30 Jahren zeigt die Wertschätzung der Holzschnitte im Mittelalter. Mit den Heiligenlegenden des Athanasius (um 295 - 373) und Hieronymus (347 - 420) beginnt die, im Verlaufe der Jahrhunderte, ständig erweiterte Sammlung von Lebensbeschreibungen, Lehrgesprächen, Anekdoten, Parabeln und Ermahnungen der in den Wüsten Ägyptens lebenden Eremiten und Mönchsgemeinschaften. Diese Altväter gehören zu den grundlegenden Schriften der monastischen Bewegung des Abendlandes. So schreibt die Benediktinerregel für die Zeit nach dem Mittagessen vor: "et legat unus collationes vel vitas patrum aut aliud quod aedificet audientes" zur Erbauung und Erziehung aus der "Vitaspatrum" vorzulesen.

        Joha[n]nis Saresberie[n]sis Policraticus de nugis curialiu[m] et vestigijs ph[ilosoph]o[rum] [con]tine[n]s libros octo.

      Lyon: Constantin Fradin,, 1513. Octavo (168 × 100 mm). Contemporary calf, covers with elaborate blindstamped rule border with inner decorative panel gilt, all edges gilt, rebacked preserving the original spine, ruled and lettered gilt, new front endpaper. Title and running headlines of first 6 leaves printed in red and black, woodcut initials. Corners restored, final blank leaf pasted onto rear board. First gathering sometime repaired in the gutter with tape, now professionally restored with some residual staining in the gutter, title page a little soiled, occasional spotting and the odd stain; withal a very good copy. Second edition, first published in Brussels c. 1480, of John of Salisbury's Policraticus. Subtitled, De Nugis Curialium et Vestigiis Philosophorum (Concerning the frivolities of Courtiers and the traditions of the Philosophers), it has been called "the first medieval treatise on political thought" (David Knowles in The Encyclopaedia of Philosophy). The work "enunciates two political doctrines - the distinction of the legitimate prince from the tyrant and the subordination of the imperial to priestly authority. The prince is not absolved from obedience to law; his position is that of 'a minister of the public welfare and a servant of equity', since the state exists to promote equity. From the church the prince receives the whole authority he wields" (ESS). The fifth and sixth books are based upon a letter written by Plutarch to Trajan, "from which he draws a lengthy comparison of the state with the human body: the head is the prince, the soul the priesthood" (ibid). The judges and administrators are the eyes, ears and tongue; knights who protect society are the hands. He also touches on hunting, gaming, dreams, astrology and witchcraft and includes a variety of anecdotes and personal experiences making in all, "a pleasing and readable miscellanous compilation" (Catholic Encylopaedia). John of Salisbury was one of the most cultured scholars of his day. He studied under Abelard, and served as secretary to Thomas à Becket before becoming Bishop of Chartres. "Notwithstanding the engrossing cares of his diplomatic career, his great learning and indefatigable industry enabled him to carry on an extensive and lifelong correspondence on literary, educational, and ecclesiastical topics with the leading scholars of Europe. His collected letters (over 300 in number) no less than his other works, form an invaluable source for the history of thought and activity in the twelfth century" (ibid).

        Opera.[Colophon:] Venice: Bernardinus de Choris de Cremona & Simon de Luere, 13 August 1491.

      "A beautiful copy, bound by Johannes Zoll from Tübingen, of the second, but first obtainable, edition of Plato's works, one of the great books of the Renaissance. The Greek <i>editio princeps</i> was not published until 1513. Unlike the first, this edition includes the <i>Platonica theologia</i> of the translator Marsilio Ficino (first published in 1482), the most important Renaissance interpretation of Plato. Although 1025 copies of the first edition were printed, only around 100 survive today (a high percentage of which are incomplete), and no copy has appeared at auction since 1948.<br/><br/> <i>Printing and the Mind of Man:</i> "That Plato should be the first of all the ancient philosophers to be translated and broadcast by the printing press was inevitable. Plato's central conception of a universe of ideas, Perfect Types, of which material objects are imperfect forms, and his ethical code based on action according to human nature, developed by education, which represents the authority of the State, fitted in as well with the philosophical, religious and political thought of western Europe in the fifteenth century, striving to free itself from the shackles of scholasticism, as it did with those of the Byzantine Greeks, by whom Plato was re-popularized in the western world. His master Socrates had laid the foundation of scientific method in asking the essential question 'What is ... ?' rather than improvising theories, and this passionate belief in the answerableness of questions and the certainty that good came from knowledge was developed and idealized in the writings of Plato. Amidst a great diversity, both of subject and treatment, the dialogues are pervaded by two dominant impulses: a love of truth and a passion for human improvement. While nowhere is a definite system laid down, it has been truly said that the germs of all ideas can be found in Plato.<br/><br/> "The systematic co-ordination of Plato's ideas came from Aristotle, and subsequent philosophers have often owed more than they have known to the most fertile of philosophic writers. Nor has the influence ever disappeared: Zeno, Epicurus, Plutarch all depended on him; Clement and Origen brought him within the scope of the Christian religion; Plotinus and John the Scot, in different ways, gave him new life. One of the effects of the Council of Florence in I439 was the reintroduction of his philosophy through the lectures of Gemistus Pletho, among whose pupils were Cardinal Bessarion and Marsilio Ficino; the latter a central figure in the humanistic movement ... By fifteenth-century standards, his Plato was a best-seller; it is a fame which succeeding ages have not diminished".<br/><br/> The translation, which was begun in 1462 and completed five years later, initially circulated in manuscript before being printed in parts in 1484-5. It contributed in great measure to the rediscovery of critical thinking and of the disciplines of Greek scholarship. ". "Folio (313 x 216 mm), contemporarily bound in a beautiful gothic binding by the bookbinder Johannes Zoll from Tübingen (florished 1477-1501, cf. Kyriss 70 and EBDB w000021): pigksin over bevelled wooden boards, 2 brass clasps, richly blindtooled with nice single stamps, among them Vera icon, eagle, evangelist's symbol and a fish with lettering ""g h"" and ""ss"". 448 leaves, complete. Attractive printing in double columns, Gothic and Roman types with Greek insertions. - Partly slight waterstaining in lower margin, towards end with some wormholes, title with small marginal cut-off at top. Else fine and unrestored copy, inside clean and with wide margins, title with inscription of the monastery Schuttern in Baden, dated 1512."

      (Regensburg ) Abdruck Hamburg Froben 1604 1513 - O-Buchblattseite aus dem Froben&#146;schen Andachtsbuch mit dem O-Holzschnitt "Christi Crucifixi Exaltatio" von A. Altdorfer (72 x 48 mm). Holzschnitt mit Namenszeichen "AA". Blatt mit Text und floralverziertem Holzschnittrahmen. Blatt wenig gebräunt und rechts knapp beschnitten. Rückseitig ohne Text, nur mit Holzschnittrahmen und Signatur "H2" sowie "CHRI-". Blattgröße: 12,3 x 18,8 cm. Viele der Holzschnitte Altdorfers (1480-1538) gehören zu den vollendetsten Meisterwerken der deutschen Graphik. Außerdem sind die Graphiken Altdorfers sehr viel seltener, als diejenigen von Albrecht Dürer. Die kleinen Abmessungen der einzelnen Holzschnitte aus dem "Sündenfall und Erlösung des Menschengeschlechtes" täuschen leicht darüber hinweg, dass dieses Werk zu den genialsten Arbeiten Altdorfers gehört. Im Jahr der Fertigstellung der Holzschnitte kaufte Altdorfer ein Haus "samt Thurm und Hofstatt am St. Veitsbach bei den Augustinern" in Regensburg, in dem er bis zu seinem Tod lebte. Im Jahr 1513 herrschte in Regensburg Aufruhr, nacktes Faustrecht und Verfolgung. So wurden alte Männer, wie der Dombaumeister Wolfgang Roritzer und der schneeweiße alte Herr Bildschnitzer Loy, beim Schein der Fackeln vor dem Rathaus mit Anderen zusammen enthauptet. In diesen dunklen Tagen zeichnete Altdorfer die 40 Holzschnitte, von denen wir hier einen anbieten. Sie sollten als Schmuck für ein Andachtsbüchlein dienen. Bei Altdorfer gibt sich in dieser Zeit der Raum, nicht wie bei Dürer zuerst als messbares Volumen, sondern eher als sinnlich-atmosphärisches Element, welches die Gestalten in stofflicher Wirklichkeit umgibt. (Aus: Winzinger: Albrecht Altdorfer Graphik, Piper, 1963)

        Duodecima Asiae Tabula

      Straßburg, Schott,, 1513 - Frühe handkolorierte Holzschnittkarte von Ceylon (Sri Lanka) von M. Waldseemüller aus dem Jahre 1513. Diese Holzschnittkarte stammt aus dem ersten so genannten Modernen Atlas von 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. - Einriss von oberer rechten Ecke bis in die Darstellung hinterlegt, ansonsten gutes Exemplar. - Early handcoloured woodcut map of Ceylon / Sri Lanka from M. Waldseemuller of 1513. This ptolemaic map comes from the first so called Modern Atlas by 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 Johann 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. - A tear from upper right corner into the image backed, good conditions. [Attributes: First Edition]

      [Strassburg, 1513. Quarto. Dbd., leather tab on foredge of first leaf. Slight soiling and dampstaining in margins. A very good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. An extremely rare German translation of a newsletter first issued in Latin and published in Rome in 1513, reporting the Portuguese conquest of Malacca in 1511 and describing its rich potential as a commercial center. No copies of this seven-leaf edition are recorded in OCLC or RLIN, and only a single copy of another 1513 German translation, printed in Augsburg and consisting of five leaves, is located in the U.S., at the James Ford Bell Library. However, the British Library holds copies of both translations, and the imprint information for this edition is based on Robert Proctor's research on German books in the British Museum. The letter from Manuel I to Pope Leo X relates the conquest of Malacca by Portuguese military commander Afonso de Albuquerque in June 1511. In addition to providing details of this victorious battle, the report includes descriptions of the wealth to be found in the region and the importance of the city as a trading nexus. In particular, the text emphasizes how courteously the merchants were treated in order to ensure future commerce. Albuquerque's voyages and military exploits between 1503 and 1515 were instrumental in consolidating Portugal's expansion to India and Malaya. The present pamphlet also records his actions after he departed from Malaya and returned to Goa in 1512. These include descriptions of skirmishes with the Moors and embassies to other parts of India and Asia related to the payment of tribute to the Portuguese crown. As in the descriptions of Malacca, the potential wealth to be found in the region is emphasized. While the text of the pamphlet is entirely about the East Indies, the titlepage contains one of the earliest illustrations of an American Indian. The woodcut on the titlepage shows a native man and native woman on either side of an armorial shield immediately below a royal crown. The naked woman, with a flowering plant in her left hand, holds the bottom of the crown with her other hand as the man steadies the shield with his left hand and grasps a bow with his right hand. The man, with full beard, wears a feather crown, skirt, and leg decorations. This woodcut is exactly the same as that illustrating the titlepage of an earlier German newsletter reporting Portuguese activities in the East, Manuel I's GESCHICHTE KURTZLICH DURCH DIE VON PORTUGALIEN IN INDIA, MORENLAND, UND ANDERN ERDTRICH, published in Nuremburg circa 1507. This portrayal of the man, in turn, appears to be derived from images of South American Indians found in an illustrated Vespucci broadside printed in Nuremberg circa 1505-1506 (see EUROPEAN AMERICANA 505/11, and illustrated on the cover of the Wolfenbüttel exhibition catalogue) and broadsides based on Vespucci's third voyage printed in Augsburg circa 1505-1506 (EUROPEAN AMERICANA 505/13 and 505/14). The publisher of the present work also issued an illustrated edition of Vespucci in 1505, although not this one (see Church 22 for a reproduction). Of course, at this early time Europeans might well have supposed that the East Indians of Malacca and the natives Vespucci encountered in the New World were the same people. All of these broadsides and pamphlets, including the present work, were published within seven or eight years in three different centers of German printing. A remarkably rare early German newsletter reporting on Portuguese military and commercial activities in Malacca and India. No copies on OCLC, or VD16; a single copy located at the British Library.

      (Regensburg ) Abdruck Hamburg Froben 1604 1513 - O-Buchblattseite aus dem Froben&#146;schen Andachtsbuch mit dem O-Holzschnitt "Inventio Christi in Templo" von A. Altdorfer (72 x 48 mm) mit der Innenansicht einer Synagoge. Holzschnitt mit Namenszeichen "AA". Blatt mit Text und floralverziertem Holzschnittrahmen. Blatt wenig gebräunt, einseitig knapp beschnitten und im unteren Rand etwas geknittert. Rückseitig ohne Text, nur mit Holzschnittrahmen und dem Anfangswort "INVEN-". Blattgröße: 12,3 x 18,8 cm. Viele der Holzschnitte Altdorfers (1480-1538) gehören zu den besten Meisterwerken der deutschen Graphik! Außerdem sind die Graphiken Altdorfers sehr viel seltener, als die Holzschnitte von Albrecht Dürer. Die kleinen Abmessungen der einzelnen Holzschnitte aus dem "Sündenfall und Erlösung des Menschengeschlechtes" täuschen leicht darüber hinweg, dass dieses Werk zu den genialsten Arbeiten Altdorfers gehört. Im Jahr der Fertigstellung der Holzschnitte kaufte Altdorfer ein Haus "samt Thurm und Hofstatt am St. Veitsbach bei den Augustinern" in Regensburg, in dem er bis zu seinem Tod lebte. Im Jahr 1513 herrschte in Regensburg Aufruhr, nacktes Faustrecht und Verfolgung. So wurden alte Männer, wie der Dombaumeister Wolfgang Roritzer und der schneeweiße alte Herr Bildschnitzer Loy, beim Schein der Fackeln vor dem Rathaus mit Anderen zusammen enthauptet. In diesen dunklen Tagen zeichnete Altdorfer die 40 Holzschnitte, von denen wir hier einen anbieten. Sie sollten als Schmuck für ein Andachtsbüchlein dienen. Bei Altdorfer gibt sich in dieser Zeit der Raum, nicht wie bei Dürer zuerst als messbares Volumen, sondern eher als sinnlich-atmosphärisches Element, welches die Gestalten in stofflicher Wirklichkeit umgibt. (Aus: Winzinger: Albrecht Altdorfer Graphik, Piper, 1963). Bei dem hier vorliegenden Holzschnitt könnte es sich um die Innenansicht der damaligen Regensburger Synagoge handeln.

      Venice, Aldus Manutius and Andreas Torresanus, September 1513 - 2 parts in one vol, folio (292 x 192 mm), ff 488 [including the two blanks, 2/4 and ii4] paginated [xxxii] 502 [2, blank]; 439 [1], Greek type [with some Roman, i.e. on Greek and Latin title, Aldus' dedication to Pope Leo X, Latin table of contents, Greek and Latin colophon], initial spaces with printed guide letters, Aldine device on title and colophon; some marginal waterstaining on corners of first ten and last 20 leaves, not affecting text, otherwise a remarkably clean copy, bound in red morocco for King Charles II by Samuel Mearne, sides with gilt filleted panels with crowned royal cypher at corners, gilt panels on spine with same cyphers, 'C.[arolus] II. R.[ex]' at foot of spine, gilt edges, old repair to head and tail of spine, joints a bit rubbed, in a red-morocco-backed box. £165,000Editio princeps of Plato's Dialogues and of the other works contained, a magnificent copy bound for King Charles II by the Royal binder Samuel Mearne. Plato's dialogues and other writings are the foundation texts of Western philosophy and science and central to the intellectual development of the West. As Alfred North Whitehead remarked, all of Western philosophy can be regarded as 'a series of footnotes to Plato'.Besides the texts of Plato, the edition includes Timaeus Locrus, a Hellenistic paraphrase of the Timaeus, and Diogenes Laertius's Vita Platonis (in Greek) from Plutarch's Lives and sentences of the Philosophers.This work was edited by Marcus Musurus (ca 1470-1517), working closely with Aldus. Musurus apparently utilised manuscripts belonging to Cardinal Bessarion, along with others. Aldus dedicated this work to Pope Leo X.Charles II, upon his restoration to the throne in 1660, appointed Samuel Mearne (1624-83) Bookbinder to the King. Samuel, along with his son Charles, bound over 700 volumes for the Old Royal Library (later incorporated into the British Museum Library).Provenance: Charles II, King of England (1630-1685); British Museum, with eighteenth-century stamp 'Museum Britannicum', and 1804 duplicate stamp on title; early 1800s engraved Lowndes bookplate; tipped in note regarding the Aldine Plato sold at the Sunderland sale in 1882 for £31 but probably not referring to this copy; bookplates of Henry Arthur Bright (1830-1884) and his son Allan Heywood Bright (1862-1941)Adams P1436; Ahmanson-Murphy 97; Norman 1714; Renouard 1513.1 (62.4)

        Tolentinum F. Baptistae Mant

      In 4to (cm 18); bella pergamena recente con tassello e titolo in oro al dorso; cc. (53), (1 bianca). Piccolo restauro al margine inferiore bianco di alcune carte, piccoli timbri di biblioteca su alcune pagine, per il resto ottima copia marginosa.RARA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE ben completa dell'ultima carta, spesso mancante, che contiene l'errata ed una lettera del Minuziano, indirizzata al dedicatario dell'opera, Giovanni da Tolentino, riguardante la correttezza dell'edizione stampata da suo genero L. Vegio.Nella dedica dello Spagnoli allo stesso Giovanni da Tolentino l'autore narra brevemente le vicende della stesura dell'opera. Il Tolentinum è un poemetto in versi ambientato nelle Marche, che contiene la descrizione di diverse località  (Ancona, Recanati, Pesaro, Fermo, Macerata, Tolentino), racconta le origine mitologiche del Piceno e accenna più volte ad eventi della storia contemporanea. Alla fine del volume vi è un componimento di cira nove pagine di Lancino Curti, sempre indirizzato a Giovanni da Tolentino, in cui si tessono le lodi dello Spagnoli e delle sue opere e si espongono con tono accorato eventi recenti della storia italiana. G.B. Spagnoli, poeta carmelitano nato a Mantova da padre spagnolo, studiò grammatica sotto G. Tifernate e filosofia a Pavia sotto P. Bagelardi. Dopo alcuni anni di cattive frequentazioni e accuse di usura e calunnia entrò nell'ordine dei Carmelitani, biasimando nel De vita beata, la sua prima pubblicazione, i suoi precedenti errori di gioventù. Entrato nelle grazie del duca di Mantova, fu incaricato dell'educazione dei giovani rampolli di casa Gonzaga. Nel 1513 fu nominato generale dell'ordine. Considerato dai suoi contemporanei come un novello Virgilio, nel 1885 fu beatificato (cfr. W. Zabughin, Un beato poeta, Roma, 1918, passim). L. Curti, milanese, si formò nelle lettere classiche sotto Giorgio Merula. Legato al cenacolo umanistico sorto alla corte di Lodovico il Moro, dove fu anche Leonardo, strinse amicizia con poeti neolatini e storici come P. Piatti, A. Fregoso, P. Sassi e B. Corio. Poeta lui stesso, la sua produzione fu raccolta e data alle stampe postuma dal nipote G. della Chiesa nel 1521 (cfr. F. Malaguzzi Valeri, La corte di Lodovico il Moro, Milano, 1913 - '23, IV, pp. 154 - 157). Su Giovanni da Tolentino (m. 1525), frate agostiniano, vedi D.A.

Giovanni Pontano, in seguito Giovanni Gioviano, nome latinizzato Ioannes Iovianus Pontanus, fu poeta, umanista e uomo politico (Cerreto di Spoleto, 1429 - Napoli, 1503). Intellettuale di spicco della corte aragonese (da lui prese il nome l'"Accademia Pontaniana"), usò un latino duttile e moderno. Nella sua cospicua produzione emergono, oltre ai vivacissimi dialoghi, il poema "Urania" (1476), e l'egloga "Lepidina" (1496), in cui una serie di cortei di ninfe e numi minori rappresentano i bei luoghi di Napoli, con le caratteristiche di usi e feste a questi luoghi congiunti. Originale poema della vita familiare e suo capolavoro sono i tre libri di elegie "De amore coniugali", che comprendono le 12 "Næniæ per il figlioletto Lucio. Fu mandato a studiare a Perugia, ove dal 1441 fu cancelliere del Comune lo zio Tommaso, non oscuro discepolo del Guarino; di poi, rinunciando in favore delle sorelle ai beni che gli restavano, andò in cerca di fortuna. Condotto nel 1448 a Napoli da Alfonso il Magnanimo, protetto dal Panormita, entrò nella «sodalitas» da questo fondata, che doveva poi diventare l'Accademia Pontaniana, e in essa prese il nome di Gioviano. Dapprima alla corte gli fu affidata l'educazione di due principini, Carlo di Navarra e Alfonso, figlio di Ferdinando I; poi entrò e presto avanzò negli uffici della Segreteria Reale. Nelle lotte che Ferdinando dovette sostenere (1458 - 1464) contro il pretendente angioino, Pontano gli fu di valido aiuto con la penna e con la spada, e ne consacrò le gesta nel "De Bello Neapolitano". Più tardi (1481) accompagnò Alfonso nell'impresa per la riconquista di Otranto; negoziò la pace di Bagnolo (1484) nella guerra contro Venezia, nel 1486 trattò l'accordo tra Ferdinando e il Papa, dal quale nello stesso anno ebbe la laurea poetica. Giustiziato come ribelle Antonello Petrucci, Pontano gli successe nell'ufficio di Segretario del Re, che tenne con grande tatto e fermezza e acuto senso politico, in circostanze difficili. Morto Ferdinando, quando, dopo il breve regno di Alfonso, Carlo VIII entrò in Napoli (febbraio 1495) e il nuovo re Ferdinando II esulò sciogliendo i sudditi dal giuramento di fedeltà, Pontano, rimasto consegnatario del potere reale, fece omaggio al conquistatore. Tornato re Ferdinando (luglio 1495), Pontano naturalmente non rioccupò il suo ufficio, ma ebbe ancora qualche incarico. Scrittore fecondissimo, in volgare lasciò solo un gruppetto di lettere, di forte colorito dialettale, tra cui belle e robuste alcune dirette ai suoi principi. Per il resto non usò che il latino: un latino agile, duttile, moderno, personalissimo. In prosa scrisse numerosi trattati astrologici ("De rebus cælestibus") e filosofici ("De prudentia"; "De fortitudine"; "De fortuna"; etc.) e, artisticamente più importanti, dialoghi ("Aegidius", "Actius", "Asinus", "Antonius", "Charon"). Tra questi, il lucianesco "Charon" è coraggiosa denuncia delle superstizioni popolari e della corruzione degli ecclesiastici, e il bizzarro e vivacissimo "Asinus" (vi s'introduce Gioviano impazzito d'amore per un asino, che, in compenso delle sue moine, gli morde ambe le mani: il che lo fa rinsavire) è allegoria, si è detto, dell'ingratitudine di Alfonso per il suo maestro. Dei poemi, il più vasto e più ricco di fantasiosi miti, originali o originalmente ricreati, è l'"Urania" in cinque libri, sulle costellazioni celesti e i relativi influssi. Continuazione dell'"Urania" è il "Meteororum liber" sui fenomeni atmosferici. Altro poema didascalico sono i due libri "De hortis Hesperidum, sive de cultu citriorum" sulla coltivazione dei cedri. Anche in questi poemi si rivela il pagano e voluttuoso cantore della natura e del piacere e l'inesauribile creatore di mitiche figurazioni. Ma il suo temperamento più agevolmente si dispiega nei due libri "Parthe

        Elucidatio fabricae usuque astrolabii.Oppenheim: Jakob Köbel, 1513 [colophon: 1512].

      First edition, an exceptionally fine copy of the most influential Renaissance work on astrolabes, and also the first German work on astrolabes. "Johann Stoeffler was a leading authority on the methods of defining latitude and longitude in vogue in the beginning of the new era; cf. his <i>Elucidatio fabricae ususque astrolabii</i>, Oppenheim, 1513 (colophon 1512)" (Winsor, <i>Narrative and Critical History of America</i>, Vol. II, p. 99). "Stoeffler recognized that, in mapping, computation of the distance between two places whose latitude and longitude were known failed to take into account the convergence of the meridians" (Stillwell).<br/><br/> The astrolabe was an inclinometer, a device invented in c. 150 BC by the Ancient Greeks. It had a variety of uses such as locating and predicting the positions of the sun, moon, planets, and stars, determining local time given local latitude and vice-versa, and in surveying and triangulation. Used in Europe from the Middle Ages onwards, Stoeffler's work was a comprehensive manual of the instrument. The first part concerns the construction of the astrolabe. The full-page woodcut illustrations are extended by paper strips to almost double the page size and clearly show the various stages in the construction process. The second part explains the use of the astrolabe with equally remarkable woodcut illustrations. Stoeffler ends his work with a discussion of perspective and measurement. <br/><br/> Stoeffler (1452-1531), a leading mathematician, astronomer and cosmographer, and professor of astronomy at Tübingen, was the teacher of Philipp Melanchthon, Johannes Schöner, and Sebastian Münster. A key member of the generation who considered Regiomontanus the paragon of Renaissance astronomers, Stoeffler adopted a programme of astronomical observation and publication of tables, and promoted the importance of precision instruments and practical accounts of how they worked. <br/><br/> This work is printed at the first press at Oppenheim and is one of the rarest books from that press. The poem by Melanchthon on **6v is probably the reformer's first appearance in print. <br/><br/> There is no reliable published collation of this work, but our copy agrees precisely with the digitized copy in the Bavarian State Library. <br/><br/> Bound after the Stoeffler is a rare philological work, Angelo Ambrogini's <i>Omnia operum</i>, in two volumes, Paris, May 1512. This is the second complete edition, after the Aldine edition (Venice, 1498). The scholarship of Ambrogini (1454-94) - usually called Poliziano after his birthplace Montepulciano (<i>Mons politianus</i>) - was instrumental in the divergence of Renaissance (or Humanist) Latin from mediaeval norms and for developments in philology. Anthony Grafton writes that Poliziano's "conscious adoption of a new standard of accuracy and precision" enabled him "to prove that his scholarship was something new, something distinctly better than that of the previous generation." <br/><br/> VD 16 S9191; Adams S1886; Benzing, Köbel 27; Houzeau & Lancaster 3256; Macclesfield 1950; Stillwell <i>Awakening</i>, 892; Wellcome 6099; Zinner 991..

Giovanni Pontano, in seguito Giovanni Gioviano, nome latinizzato Ioannes Iovianus Pontanus, fu poeta, umanista e uomo politico (Cerreto di Spoleto, 1429 - Napoli, 1503). Intellettuale di spicco della corte aragonese (da lui prese il nome l'"Accademia Pontaniana"), usò un latino duttile e moderno. Nella sua cospicua produzione emergono, oltre ai vivacissimi dialoghi, il poema "Urania" (1476), e l'egloga "Lepidina" (1496), in cui una serie di cortei di ninfe e numi minori rappresentano i bei luoghi di Napoli, con le caratteristiche di usi e feste a questi luoghi congiunti. Originale poema della vita familiare e suo capolavoro sono i tre libri di elegie "De amore coniugali", che comprendono le 12 "Næniæ per il figlioletto Lucio. Fu mandato a studiare a Perugia, ove dal 1441 fu cancelliere del Comune lo zio Tommaso, non oscuro discepolo del Guarino; di poi, rinunciando in favore delle sorelle ai beni che gli restavano, andò in cerca di fortuna. Condotto nel 1448 a Napoli da Alfonso il Magnanimo, protetto dal Panormita, entrò nella «sodalitas» da questo fondata, che doveva poi diventare l'Accademia Pontaniana, e in essa prese il nome di Gioviano. Dapprima alla corte gli fu affidata l'educazione di due principini, Carlo di Navarra e Alfonso, figlio di Ferdinando I; poi entrò e presto avanzò negli uffici della Segreteria Reale. Nelle lotte che Ferdinando dovette sostenere (1458 - 1464) contro il pretendente angioino, Pontano gli fu di valido aiuto con la penna e con la spada, e ne consacrò le gesta nel "De Bello Neapolitano". Più tardi (1481) accompagnò Alfonso nell'impresa per la riconquista di Otranto; negoziò la pace di Bagnolo (1484) nella guerra contro Venezia, nel 1486 trattò l'accordo tra Ferdinando e il Papa, dal quale nello stesso anno ebbe la laurea poetica. Giustiziato come ribelle Antonello Petrucci, Pontano gli successe nell'ufficio di Segretario del Re, che tenne con grande tatto e fermezza e acuto senso politico, in circostanze difficili. Morto Ferdinando, quando, dopo il breve regno di Alfonso, Carlo VIII entrò in Napoli (febbraio 1495) e il nuovo re Ferdinando II esulò sciogliendo i sudditi dal giuramento di fedeltà, Pontano, rimasto consegnatario del potere reale, fece omaggio al conquistatore. Tornato re Ferdinando (luglio 1495), Pontano naturalmente non rioccupò il suo ufficio, ma ebbe ancora qualche incarico. Scrittore fecondissimo, in volgare lasciò solo un gruppetto di lettere, di forte colorito dialettale, tra cui belle e robuste alcune dirette ai suoi principi. Per il resto non usò che il latino: un latino agile, duttile, moderno, personalissimo. In prosa scrisse numerosi trattati astrologici ("De rebus cælestibus") e filosofici ("De prudentia"; "De fortitudine"; "De fortuna"; etc.) e, artisticamente più importanti, dialoghi ("Aegidius", "Actius", "Asinus", "Antonius", "Charon"). Tra questi, il lucianesco "Charon" è coraggiosa denuncia delle superstizioni popolari e della corruzione degli ecclesiastici, e il bizzarro e vivacissimo "Asinus" (vi s'introduce Gioviano impazzito d'amore per un asino, che, in compenso delle sue moine, gli morde ambe le mani: il che lo fa rinsavire) è allegoria, si è detto, dell'ingratitudine di Alfonso per il suo maestro. Dei poemi, il più vasto e più ricco di fantasiosi miti, originali o originalmente ricreati, è l'"Urania" in cinque libri, sulle costellazioni celesti e i relativi influssi. Continuazione dell'"Urania" è il "Meteororum liber" sui fenomeni atmosferici. Altro poema didascalico sono i due libri "De hortis Hesperidum, sive de cultu citriorum" sulla coltivazione dei cedri. Anche in questi poemi si rivela il pagano e voluttuoso cantore della natura e del piacere e l'inesauribile creatore di mitiche figurazioni. Ma il suo temperamento più agevolmente si dispiega nei due libri "Parthe
