FORLANI, Paolo
272 by 355mm. (10.75 by 14 inches).. Double-page engraved map. Printed from a possible discarded first issue plate, with the date in the title cartouche in Roman numerals, rather than Arabic, and with the line break after ‘esatta' in the title. An unusual map showing the coast of the Holy Land with Cyprus, and the Levant coast to the south of the Dead Sea, engraved and published by Paolo Forlani. The map is based on Martin Waldseemüller's cartography in the 1513 edition of Ptolemy's ‘Geographia': Forlani probably saw Giordano Ziletti's edition published in Venice in 1561, enlarged it and added the decorative title cartouche and the wind rose. The variant with Arabic numerals appears in two states, the second published by Donato Bertelli. There are institutional examples in the Danish National Library, Leiden University Library, National Library of Israel and the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Laor, Holy Land, 864; Meurer, Strabo, p.123; Tooley, Italian Atlases, 436; Woodward, Forlani, 56; Zacharakis 1536.

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius; Martin WALDESEEMULLER
Strassburg,: Johannes Schott, 12th March, 1513. Strassburg,: Johannes Schott, 12th March,, 1513.. Folio (456 by 320mm), (181) ff., with 45 double-page and two single-page maps, of which one, Lorraine, is printed in three colours, some light browning and occasional marginal staining, maps mounted on vellum guards, repaired tear to blank corner of A2, ‘Septima Asia' with neatly repaired tear affecting image, early ink marginalia to ‘Aphricae', seventeenth-century vellum over paste-board. Collation: A2,B-N6,45 double-page and two single-page maps, a6, b4, c6. Watermark: fleur-de-lys. A monumental work containing critical New World information, derived from the latest voyages of exploration, including the earliest atlas map devoted entirely to the New World (‘Terra Incognita'), the earliest map printed in more than two colours - and, for many other countries, the first published maps (notably the map of Switzerland, which is styled differently and probably adapted from a manuscript map by Konrad Türst c1495). It is “the most important of all the Ptolemy editions” (Streeter). Cartography 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 the atlas consists of 27 Ptolemaic maps, taken from the 1482 Ulm Ptolemy or, possibly, the manuscript atlas of Nicolaus Germanus upon which the Ulm Ptolemy was based. The second part, known as the ‘Supplement', comprises 20 “modern” maps labelled either as ‘Nova' or ‘M … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius and Martin WALDSEEMULLER
[Strassburg,: Johann Schott, 1513. [Strassburg,: Johann Schott,, 1513. 1513]. Double-page woodcut map of the world. Waldseemuller's map of the New World shows the Atlantic coast of the Americas from latitudes 35 degrees south to 55 degrees north, including 20 place-names on the North American coastline. An apparent Gulf of Mexico, the Florida peninsula, Cuba as Isabella and Hispaniola, and across the Atlantic portions of the British Isles, Spain and Portugal and Africa are visible. First edition, published in Schott's edition of Ptolemy's 'Geographia', Strassburg, 1513, the first modern atlas, prepared by Martin Waldseemuller using the translation of Mathias Ringmann, and 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 'new' 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. In 1507, from their scholastic community in St. Die, Waldseemüller and Ringmann had collaborated on the 'Cosmographiae Introductio' which accompanied Waldseemuller 's map of the world 'Universalis Cosmographia Secundum Ptholomaei Traditionem et Americi Vespucii Alioru[m]que Lustrationes'. In the booklet they attribute the discovery of America to Vespucci, and then name the landmass after him on the map. In th … [Click Below for Full Description]

WALDSEEMULLER, Martin
Strasbourg: 1513. Woodcut. 17.5" x 24.5". Seminal map of the New World also known as 'The Admirals Map'. In the introduction to the atlas Waldseemuller refers to 'the Admiral' as the source for his cartography, referring to Christopher Columbus. This first edition was published in Johannes Schott's (1477-1548) Ptolemaic atlas which contained twenty new maps. The names shown on the North American coastline are from Portuguese sources. What appears to be the Gulf of Mexico refers to unrecorded voyages or sailors accounts of the area. For example, the Florida peninsula is shown before recorded knowledge of it could have reached Europe. Cuba is here named Isabella after the Queen of Spain and positioned further north. Latin text block in South America reads: This land and islands were discovered by Christopher Columbus for the King of Castile. Full margins with latin manuscript notes in ink upper left margin. Martin Waldseemuller (c1475-c1521) was a German scholar and cartographer. He produced the first large printed world map, the first collection of modern maps, and some of the first maps to be made from measurements on the ground. He learned about printing trade in Basel. He is credited with the first recorded usage of the word America. A wonder to behold. Very good(+). [Attributes: First Edition]

Sigebertus, of Gembtoux (Sigebert)
Paris: Ioannis Petit, 1513. Editio Princeps. Hardcover. 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. Fine. Item #19827.

(Catholic Church).
Joannem Weyssenburger, 1513. Uncommon handbook guiding the novice (or just uncertain) priest through performing the sacraments: baptism, marriage, confession, etc. A large, heading for full-page => woodcut on the title-page depicts the infant Jesus holding a cross, the Holy Sponge, and the Spear of the Passion surrounded by four roundels, each containing an Evangelist with his symbol. The work is printed in single-column => black letter, with headings in a larger font, paragraph marks, and initial letters for ease of use; one of the initial letters is historiated. Two tab remnants at the start and end of the text suggest this was originally bound within a larger work. This is a later edition, following the first printing ca. 1480. Though the work appeared several times in the 15th and 16th centuries, none of these early printings are widely held, and searches of WorldCat, COPAC, and the NUC reveal => no copies of this edition in a U.S. institution. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

ALEXANDER OF APHRODISIAS. - [DISCOVERING THE FIRST PRINCIPLES OF THOUGHT]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jehan Petit, 1513. Petit in-8 de 171 feuillets maroquin vert ancien, triple filet doré encadrant les plats, dos lisse orné de fers dorés, pièce de titre rouge, tranches dorées. (Reliure début XIXe avec un petit manque à la coiffe supérieure). Ouvrage post incunable, imprimé en gothique sur deux colonnes, contenant de nombreuses lettrines à fond criblé. Rare titre imprimé par Jean Barbier, que l’on doit à ce célèbre prédicateur du XVe siècle, connu pour ses sermons virulents. Il n’hésita pas en effet à dénoncer et accabler de tous les maux, aidé d’un langage souvent outrancier, hommes du monde ou d’église, gentilhommes ou gens du peuple. Il eut notamment lors d’un sermon, une critique amère contre Louis XI, qui eut vent de cet anathème et qui menaça donc le prédicateur de ses foudres. Maillard ne mollit pas et Louis XI le laissa tranquille Grâce à son talent d’orateur, ou par crainte de ses phrases acérées, ce professeur de théologie obtint les faveurs entre autres du duc de Bourgogne, du pape Innocent VIII, de Ferdinand de Castille Ironie du sort, ce fut pourtant par des moines de Saint-François qu’il fut chassé de leur couvent comme un malpropre, alors que le Cordelier avait accepté par le légat du Saint Siège de réformer les couvents de Paris Très bon exemplaire imprimé par Jean Petit, dont figure sur la page de titre sa marque d’imprimeur. Descendant de bouchers parisiens, il établit sa librairie en 1492.

PICO DELLA MIRANDOLA, Giovanni Francesco
Mazzocchi, Roma. In-8°; cc. (12). Edizione originale del poema di Giovanni Francesco Pico della Mirandola, una delle prime fonti sulla collezione di statuaria antica conservata al Giardino del Belvedere in Vaticano.Scritto nell'ultimo anno del pontificato di Giulio II (1503-1513), l'opera sottolinea la passione per le antichità classiche che con questo papa divenne una vera e propria moda nella Roma del tempo. Molti si domandarono se fosse idoneo consevare nel tempio della cristianità una collezione che esaltava anche le divinità pagane. Pico, seguace della corrente savonaroliana che denigrava la cultura rinascimentale del recupero e dell'imitazione dei classici romani e greci, si serve di quest'opera per stigmatizzare questa contrasto, proponendo nei suoi versi la Vergine Maria come contraltare alla Venere classica, presentando la collezione del vaticano come la manifestazione fisica della corruzione culturale e morale della Roma di Giulio II.Nella lettera a Francesco Giraldi, umanista ed erudito nativo di Ferrara, datata 1512, Pico offre una sorta di panoramica sulle statue collocate nel Belvedere: sono tra le prime parole che vengono spese sul posizionamento in quel luogo di quello che fu il simbolo della rinascita del classico, il gruppo del Laocoonte ritrovato presso la Domus Aurea nel 1506 e acquistato da Giulio II. Vengono anche citate la statua di Apollo e Cleopatra, e la grande immagine del Tevere.

Per lo stampatore e la data ci sembra più corretto pensare che questa edizione preceda quella di Froben, Basilea, 1515, e che quindi sia da attribuire al tipografo Beplin nel 1513 (STC p. 208 Beplin, Roma 1513?; vedi anche British Library, 1513), piuttosto che seguire la lezione di F.

WIDMANN (called MECHINGER), Johannes
[8] leaves (the last is blank). Small 4to, modern limp vellum (light dampstaining at foot). [Tübingen: T. Anshelm, 1513]. First edition of this early and rare balneological work which describes the mineral baths at Wildbad and their benefits. Wildbad is a watering place in Württemberg, situated in the Enz gorge in the Black Forest. Its thermal alkaline springs have a temperature of 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit. Widmann (1440-1524), took his master of arts degree at Heidelberg and then went to Italy where he studied medicine at Pavia, Padua, and Ferrara. He received his medical degree at Ulm. Later, Widmann held a series of posts, including physician to Margrave Christoph von Baden and Duke Eberhard von Württemberg, city physician at Basel, Strasbourg, and Ulm, and professor of medicine at Tübingen. His tract on syphilis, published in 1497, is considered to be one of the best written in the 15th century. In this work, Widmann describes the medical uses the waters of Wildbad provide in treating gout, rheumatism, and neuralgia. Fine copy. ❧ Durling 4728. Hirsch, V, pp. 925-26.

[Strassburg,: Johann Schott, 1513. [Strassburg,: Johann Schott,, 1513. 1513]. Double-page woodcut map of the world. Waldseemuller's map of the New World shows the Atlantic coast of the Americas from latitudes 35 degrees south to 55 degrees north, including 20 place-names on the North American coastline. An apparent Gulf of Mexico, the Florida peninsula, Cuba as Isabella and Hispaniola, and across the Atlantic portions of the British Isles, Spain and Portugal and Africa are visible. First edition, published in Schott's edition of Ptolemy's 'Geographia', Strassburg, 1513, the first modern atlas, prepared by Martin Waldseemuller using the translation of Mathias Ringmann, and 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 'new' 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. In 1507, from their scholastic community in St. Die, Waldseemüller and Ringmann had collaborated on the 'Cosmographiae Introductio' which accompanied Waldseemuller 's map of the world 'Universalis Cosmographia Secundum Ptholomaei Traditionem et Americi Vespucii Alioru[m]que Lustrationes'.

RÖSSLIN, Eucharius.
Arnt von Aich, [Cologne. An exceptionally fine copy, in an untouched contemporary binding, of one of three editions of this landmark work published at about the same time, this probably being the third (see below). This is the earliest printed textbook for midwives and one of the first printed books devoted to obstetrics, including engravings attributed to the Frankfurt artist Martin Kaldenbach, a pupil of Albrecht Dürer. Although copies of these editions occasionally appear on the market, they are almost always in poor condition, and usually rebound, as a result of extensive use over the centuries. ?The most important items in my collection of rare obstetrical books are the 1513 editions of the famous obstetrical textbook, Der Swangern Frauwen und Hebammen Roszgarten by Eucharius Roesslin, a physician from Worms. All three were published in the same year but each was set up and printed differently (Nos. 1, 2, 3). One is dated; the other two are not. There is, of course, no way of knowing which of these three was the real first edition? (Hellman). All three editions are extremely rare. ?Roesslin?s obstetrical treatise, first published in German in 1513 under the title Der swangern Frawen und hebammen roszgarten, had an enormous impact on contemporary obstetrical practice and remained influential for two hundred years, going through overone hundred editions before the close of the eighteenth century. The work contained little original material, being primarily a survey of Greek and Roman obstetrical literature, but it was the first to deal with obstetrics as a separate subje … [Click Below for Full Description]

MANUEL (King of Portugal).
Rome Jacob Mazochius 9th August, 1513. Small 4to (20 x 14.5 cm), 4pp., modern full morocco gilt, a fine example. Rare. The highly important letter from King Manuel to Pope Leo X, announcing the capture of Malacca by Albuquerque, a victory which gave Portugal control of the trade routes to South-east Asia, and thus access to the wealth of the Spice Islands and the sea route to China. Our copy appears to be from an unrecorded edition. It has the same colophon as the first edition but is printed in smaller type on two, rather than six, leaves. It is possibly a pirate edition from the same time. Later editions appeared in Vienna and Stassbourg. After the capture of Malacca by the Portuguese under Albuquerque in 1511 (which became known in Europe in 1513), King Manuel dispatched letters to Rome informing the Papacy of Portugal's progress. This mattered greatly to Manuel as there was a perceived need to settle the question of demarcation between Spain and Portugal in this area which was important for control of the Spice Islands. Pope Leo X, newly elected that Spring, was the son of Lorenzo the Magnificent and effectively the leading Medici and ruler of Florence, who represented the traditional favourable disposition to Portugal of Florentine merchants. In addition, Portugal had a good record in defeating Muslims and thus advancing Christianity. It was no surprise therefore that public celebrations of thanksgiving were held in Rome shortly after news of Albuquerque's victory in Malacca was announced. Lach I, 166-167; Streit IV, 380-382.

Mondino de Luzzi (Mundinus)
Strasbourg: Martinus Flach, 1513. Mondino de' Luzzi (1275?-1326). De omnibus humani corporis interioris menbris [sic] anathomia. 4to. [79]pp. Woodcut of heart on leaf Fiiiiv; "Zodiac Man" woodcut on title and colophon leaf. Strasbourg: Flach, 1513 (colophon). 205 x 145 mm. 18th century red morocco gilt, spine repaired, some wear at spine and edges. Title-leaf repaired without loss of text, minor scattered foxing but very good. Copiously annotated in the margins of how many pages???? in a contemporary hand (notes slightly trimmed at margins). Modern bookplates. Rare Early Illustrated Edition of Mondino's classic anatomy textbook, apparently the only one to contain an image of the heart. This copy features extensive annotations, in what appears to be a 16th-century hand, commenting on Mondino's text, particularly on the pages devoted to the abdominal organs and on the colophon's "Zodiac Man" image. It is therefore a useful witness to how Mondino's text was studied in the 16th century. Mondino reintroduced human dissection-which had been neglected for the previous 1500 years-to the study of anatomy. His Anatomia, originally written in 1316 for the use of his students, first appeared in print in 1487; the work was the first to incorporate new anatomical knowledge gained since classical times. The Anathomia remained a standard textbook of anatomy for the next 200 years, unsurpassed until the work of Berengario da Carpi; indeed, Berengario da Carpi's two great anatomical works, Commentaria cum amplissimis additionibus super anatomia Mundino (1521), and Isagogae breves (1522) a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nel Renouard, a pagina 63, si rileva che l'A. ne aveva collazionato una copia conforme alla nostra da cui deduce non corretto l'uso di considerare come seconda edizione quella riportante le due diverse date. Alcune carte sono state ripulite e un pò fragile risulta il margine esterno del frontespizio e dell'ultima carta. Stampa a carattere corsivo; nei primi 79 fogli, numerati in unica sequenza, si trova la prefazione di Aldo, la dedica di Pirro Perotti al Duca di Urbino, una vita di Marziale e una dedica a Leone X di Bembo, seguono ancora due privilegi che Giulio II e Alessandro VI concessero a Manunzio.

The work is printed in single-column => black letter, with headings in a larger font, paragraph marks, and initial letters for ease of use; one of the initial letters is historiated. Two tab remnants at the start and end of the text suggest this was originally bound within a larger work.    This is a later edition, following the first printing ca. 1480. Though the work appeared several times in the 15th and 16th centuries, none of these early printings are widely held, and searches of WorldCat, COPAC, and the NUC reveal => no copies of this edition in a U.S. institution.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A.

HYGINUS
Paucidrapensis sumptibus vero heredum quondam...Octaviana Scoti, 1513. 4to. 52 unnumbered ll, last blank [A-F8 G4]. Gothic letter with woodcut initials of twelve- , seven- and four-line height. T.p. with full-page woodcut of 'Sphaera Mundi', 47 half-page woodcuts depicting constellations, the signs of the Zodiac, and allegories of the 7 planets. Light age yellowing, some browning at C3-8, a well-margined, crisp and clean copy in C17th vellum over boards, brown morocco label, cracking to upper joint but sound, a.e.r. Hyginus's work on the constellations, known as the 'Poetical Astronomy', depicts 47 constellations found in Ptolemy's Almagest alongside tales from their mythological origins. Printed in beautiful imitation of Ratdolt's 1482 edition, this nonetheless has a more sensible layout, keeping each image on the same page as its accompanying text that gives the stars' location in the sky. The images are precursors of the grand star atlases of the 17th and 18th century, such as Tycho Brahe's Rudolphine Tables. Moreover, the accompanying stories provide insight into the more obscure corners of classical mythology that otherwise would not have survived, beginning in the north with Draco and the Bears, major and minor, and ending with the Fish found in southern skies. Hyginus compiles information from as many sources as possible for each, so many descriptions catalogue the myths of different cultures. For instance, the Serpent-Holder called Ophiuchus is Phorbas according to the Rhodians, because he aided them in ridding the island of Ophiussa of its overgrown snakes.

Pietro, l'attività edilizia di Niccolò V e dei suoi successori, cenni su varie chiese)» (DBI 50, 711). Ascarelli, Mazzocchi, 57. Schudt 597 e p. 140. Rossetti G - 205.

EARLY BIBLE
Antwerpen, Claes de Grave, and at Brussel, Jan van der Noot 1513. "157 folia. Rebound Leather with 6 raised bands, small Folio (Folia 103 reinforced, titlepage in facsimile, lacks folia 6, 37 and 158. The capital letters are highlighted with red paint by hand. With some original, sixteenth century annotations in the margins of folia 136 and 137. First edition of this paraphrase of the Bible, also called History Bible. The work contains parts of the Old Testament and the Apocrypha with all kinds of miraculous tales woven into it, originating from the Medieval lore. Due to its content this post-incunabula is regarded as a curiosity in the printing history of Bibles in the Dutch language. The work is a translation and adaptation of a French bible version which was based on the Historia Scholastica by Petrus Comestor. It can be seen as a free adaptation of mostly the historical books of the Bible with relevant additions. Semi-biblical works were very popular in the early sixteenth century, hence this History Bible was published three times in a short period. However, this popularity changed quickly and the work was called a 'Vervalschte Nederduytsche Bybel' (Forged Dutch Bible) due to its inaccurate presentation of the Bible. Le Long mentions in his standard work that he suspects that the work is tracked and bought by the Catholic clergy to cover up the prove of the forging of the Word of God. Because of this the work is extremely rare and of this edition only 2 other copies are known worldwide.)157 folia.
