THERE IS A STORY BEHIND EVERY BLEMISH! Bible leaf collectors know that some leaves are hard to look at and others look as new as the day they left the printing press. The condition of a particular leaf reflects its history and is not an indication of its actual value. Perfect leaves are ones that have seen little or no use over the centuries in contrast to those that are scarred by the ravages of time. Unblemished leaves are unloved leaves because they have had little contact with sinners. Imperfect leaves tell a story. Some are torn and ripped and worn away by excessive use while others have burns or worm holes and still others are water stained by flood and sometimes even tears. Each ugly mark or stain is in fact a beautiful witness to the Word of God, which, "liveth and abideth forever." We offer Bible leaves as we acquire them letting their condition speak for themselves. All our leaves are sold as seen on eBay. You may request additional images and information for any leaf. Choice Leaves, Finer than Gold, from the Word of God Taste and see! It's sweeter than honey!!

Obschon noch ganz auf dem alten Boden der Scholastik stehend, bekundet schon der erste, rein theoretische Theil die Einsicht des Verfassers in die wirklichen Bedürfnisse des Volks, indem er von der Predigt vor allem Einfachheit und Verständlichkeit des Inhalts verlangt, zugleich aber nicht nur vor unwürdigen Späßen und dergleichen warnt, sondern auch vor aller nach Effect haschenden Uebertreibung. Noch werthvoller jedoch ist der zweite Theil mit seinen praktischen Anleitungen und deutschen Vorbildern.

Anthonius Gazius; Antonio Gazio
Lyon: Gilbertus de Villiers, 1514. Hardcover. Good. 4to, speckled pasteboard. Title printed in red and black, with woodcut device. [8], CLIX leaves. Scattered contemporary marginalia. First published in 1491 in Venice. Gazio was a professor of medicine in Padua and later personal physician to the King of Poland. In this, his most known work, he discusses hygiene, health maintenance, and nutrition. A substantial amount of the work is devoted to food and drink (specifically the healthy aspects of wine drinking.) The Florida corona consists chiefly of rules for the preservation of health and contains little or no astrological medicine. ... It includes instructions for religious celibates whom it advises not even to read its preceding chapters on sexual intercourse - a caution that might have been better given before these chapters." (Lynn Thorndike, History of Magic and Experimental Medicine V, 170.) "Important traite de dietetique et d'hygiene d'un celebre medecin de Padoue qui connaissant et aimait le vin. Les chapitres 42 a 63 sont consacres au choix des aliments et des boissons. L'auteur consacre une importante partie de son ouvrage au vin, a l'art de boire, et a une étude approfondie de la soif humaine." (Simon, Biblotheca Bacchica 283).

The blank bottom 2.5" of the title have an old repair. Printed with wide margins in the text, and throughout there are marginal and interlinear Latin notes and comments in black ink by at least two sixteenth-century hands.

[Jacopone da Todi, Jacopo de' Benedetti].
Rare and beautiful edition of this Italian poetry chef-d'œuvre, sumptuously bound for Fairfax Murray by Mackenzie. Franciscan religious Jacopo de Benedetti (Todi, c.1230 - 1306) is, alongside Dante, possibly the most illustrious figure and poet of Italian medieval literature. The book contains one of the earliest printed versions of the Stabat Mater, later made into music by Vivaldi, Haydn, Rossini, Schubert, Verdi, des Pres, Scarlatti, and others. This edition, published in 1514 by Benali (1483 - 1543) follows partially the Florence and Brescia editions, but adds to it with new pieces, both authentic and some attributed, along with pieces by other authors, such as St. Thomas Aquinas. It is illustrated with 3 woodcuts in text, one shows St. Francis receiving the stigmata, and another shows Jesus in prayer. Provenance: Ch. Fairfax Murray, bookplate on flyleaf. Gamba, 577.

Albertus Magnus.
(Vienna, Hieronymus Vietor & Johannes Singriener für Leonhard & Lukas Alantsee, 1514). 4to. (104) pp. With woodcut title border and full-page woodcut arms of Emperor Maximilian I on verso of final leaf. Papered spine. Very rare first edition of Albert's general description of the earth, marking the inauguration of scientific geography as an independent discipline and the first attempt at a comparative geography. Edited by the Bavarian mathematician, astronomer and astrologer Georg Tannstetter, who was mainly active in Vienna. "Interesting to the American collector on account of a marginal note relating to Vespuccius, which seems to have been inserted with movable type, on the recto of the last leaf in signature d, after the book had been printed" (Sabin). The contemporary owner, too, has highlighted the name by a marginal ms. note, "Vespucius". Also treats the Middle East with the "sinus Persicus" and "sinus Arabicus" (f. J4r). At the end, Tannstetter provides a brief list of unprinted works by Albertus, to which the contemporary owner has added "De vegetabilis et plantis". - Binding somewhat loosened near beginning; upper edge of title page remargined. Several contemporary marginalia. Occcasional light fingerstaining, but altogether clean and well-preserved. VD 16, A 1345. IA 102.526. Alden/L. 514/1. Sabin 671. JCB I, 58. Harrisse 76.

WERNER, Johannes.
Nürnberg: Stuchs, 1514. The Werner map projection. First edition of Werner's most important book, an extremely rare and highly influential work on cartography and navigation, containing the first published direct translation of any part of Ptolemy's Geography from the original Greek. It includes the first publication of the Werner map projection, which was widely used for world and continental maps through the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, notably by Mercator, Oronce Finé and Ortelius. The book also contains the invention of the lunar distance method of longitude determination, and of the cross-staff, an instrument designed to make the necessary astronomical observations at sea. Born in Nürnberg, the mathematician, astronomer and geographer Johannes Werner (1468-1522) was a student at the University of Ingolstadt from 1484. He studied in Rome between 1493 and 1498 before returning to Nürnberg as chaplain of St. Johannes's church. There he became part of a tight knit circle of mathematical practitioners in Nürnberg, Ingolstadt, Vienna and Tübingen who were largely responsible for establishing mathematics as a discipline in the central European universities. Werner's edition of the first and part of the seventh book of Ptolemy's Geography, the Nova translatio Primi Geographiae, was the first translation from the Greek since the original translation made by Jacobus Anglicus around 1406. Werner stated clearly that his rationale for the undertaking lay in the many errors contained in Anglicus's edition and in the succeeding ones, which were all based on Anglicus's renderi … [Click Below for Full Description]

His only other well known work was this 'De Laudibus Westphalie' (first edition circa 1488) in which he describes the geography, manners and customs of his native land.

PACHECO, Diogo.
Rome Marcello Silber, 1514. First edition. Small 4to. (19.8 x 14.7 cm), 8 leaves, title within ornamental woodcut border and with arms of Portugal, disbound, well preserved in chemise and blue morocco-backed box. The very rare oration of obedience delivered by Pacheco on behalf of the King of Portugal, of great historical importance being instrumental in the granting of rights by the Pope to Portugal to control and develop all lands in the East, whether known or unknown. 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 1514 Manuel sent an Embassy of obedience to Rome led by Tristão da Cunha. Pacheco, a professor of law, was on this Embassy and delivered the oration of obedience on behalf of Manuel. The Embassy was a great popular success, featuring leopards, Persian horses, slaves from India, and above all a trained elephant which bowed three times before the Pope and squirted water over the population. More importantly it led to a papal bull, Praecelsae Devotionis in 1514 which gave Portugal 'the patronage of e … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Jacques Myt] for Barthélemy Troth, 1514. 8vo, ff. 196. Italic letter, a little Roman, floriated initials. Light age yellowing, occasional spotting, odd ink stain to title page, light browning, side worm trail to t-p lower margin. Contemporary limp vellum, early ink title to spine, remains of ties, a little worn; text block loosening, joints a bit cracked. Ownership inscription of Luigi Grozo (Groto) on t-p and final blank corrections and annotations in the same hand on first 14 leaves and BBii, “Silius”/“Silvius” inscribed on lower edge. A pseudo-Aldine, masquerading as an Aldine octavo in content, format and typography, of the Latin poem on the Second Punic war by the Roman orator and poet Silius Italicus (c. CE 28-103). The first Aldine edition didn’t appear until July 1523. This copy belonged to Luigi Groto (1541-1585), also called “Cieco d’Adria”, a blind Italian poet, playwright and actor from an aristocratic Venetian family. Groto studied philosophy and literature, and at the age of 15 was already a public orator, thanks to his extraordinary memory. He pronounced speeches on solemn occasions. He founded the Accademia degli Illustrati with other poets and composed poems and numerous theatrical works, influenced by the classical authors and the pastoral tradition, such as “Dalida” and the “Pentimento amoroso”. At the end of his career he participated in the performance of “Edipo Re” at the Olympic theatre in Vicenza. This edition was prepared with considerable care by Damiano Benessa, a merchant from Ragusa, resident in Lyon, and includes two letters to Giovanni Battis … [Click Below for Full Description]

1514. Historiated woodcut border on title page, one white on black woodcut initial, some Greek type. 4to (198 x 145mm). 53, [1 (blank)] ff. Modern vellum, red edges. Strasbourg, Matthias Schürer, November Rare early edition of Erasmus' Praise of Folly, which was first published in Paris in 1511. Conceived by Erasmus on his journey from Italy to England, it was written in a little over a week during his stay at the house of Thomas More in London in 1509 (to whom the work is also dedicated). In a letter written in May, 1515, Erasmus himself described it as light relief from the kidney-stone he was afflicted by: 'my library had not yet arrived.so, for want of employment, I began to amuse myself with Praise of Folly, not with the intention of publishing the result, but to relieve the discomfort of sickness by this sort of distraction' ('Introduction', Praise of Folly (Oxford, 1913), xiv). He had earlier, in a letter to More, described it as a 'trifling thing' (Letter 222, Jun. 1511, Correspondence of Erasmus Vol. II). More than a mere distraction or trifle, this work is an acerbic, humorous attack on the foolishness that ruled church and state in the period. 'It satirizes the old learning, the old medieval world, the monks and friars, the pilgrimages and processions, the cult of saints, in a style of biting humour. Erasmus was a great humourist, subtly ironical and elusive' (F. A. Yates, Ideas and Ideals in the North European Renaissance (1984), 155). It was extremely popular, said to be enjoyed even by Pope Leo X; thirty five editions followed its first printing in Paris. Whil … [Click Below for Full Description]

The blank bottom 2.5" of the title have an old repair.

Girolamo Savonarola
Prediche Utilissime per quadragesima del Venerando Padre Frate Hieronymo Savonarola da Ferrara de lordine di frati Predicatori Sopra Amos, p(ro)pheta: & sopra Zacharia propheta: & parte etiam sopra lo sacro Evangelio Rarissimo post-incunabolo. Girolamo Savonarola fu un famoso frate domenicano (Ferrara 1452 - Firenze 1498). La sua fine, causata da una complessa vicenda politica di fazioni cittadine, ha forse la ragione più profonda nella sua fiducia di poter imporre, in un'età ormai aperta ai valori mondani, un severo costume penitenziale, accettabile solo da una minoranza di seguaci, infoltiti per breve tempo da quanti, malcontenti della situazione politica e religiosa, che credettero in un rivolgimento annunciato come certa profezia. La riforma savonaroliana, voluta con purezza di intenzioni, con passione sincera, trovava consensi parziali nella società del tempo; l'assunzione di S. a simbolo di libertà repubblicana e più tardi la sua trasfigurazione a precursore della riforma luterana, a eroe del neoguelfismo o a profeta della conciliazione tra religione e scienza sono interpretazioni unilaterali di una intensa esperienza religiosa, svoltasi nel tentativo di rinnovare la politica fiorentina e italiana, divisa da interessi concreti e quindi provvisoriamente alleata all'escatologia tutta medievale del frate. La prosa savonaroliana, nutrita di elementi medievaleggianti e biblicizzanti, ha una straordinaria vivacità di espressioni e di forme, vigorosamente scandita dal ritmo acceso e turbinoso della sua esperienza religiosa e umana

STROZZI (, Ercole & Tito "Vespasiano")
Venice, Aldus & Asolanus 1513 (following the Venecian calendar; according to the usual European calendar 1514). - 8vo. (8), 99 lvs., (1) leaf, 152 lvs. With Aldus’ device (Fletcher Nr. 5) on title and last leaf verso. 16th century gilt-stamped vellum (darkened, soiled, rubbed); new end-papers and fly leaves, lacking ties. First Aldus edition of Strozzis’ poems, first edition of most of the complete works; scarce. PROVENENCE: The reverse of the title page has an autograph in the form of a six-line dedication to the two Strozzis from Daniel Finus; leaf A8 verso also has a longer laudation to Aldus Manutius by him written in manuscript. Both were published only in the 20th century (A. della Guardia: Tito Vespasiano Strozzi. 1916, p. LVIII, and S. Pasquazi, Poeti estensi. 1966).

This incomparable book of the father and the diligent son has the elegance of a multicoloured garland plucked from the garden of twins. While the father strikes the iron: so the son nourishes the bellows ; alternately the work is created. As Titus, the father, entwines himself by the laurel, the son scoops from the spring of the Muses. The second reads: "Clarissimio ac de utraque lingua optime merito d(omino) / Aldo Manucio Daniel Finus. / Praesid … [Click Below for Full Description]
