        Breviario Grimani.

      Ghent and Bruges ca. 1515-1520. 835 folia. Crimson velvet binding, richly decorated with gilt ornaments, 2 clasps, gilt-edged and gauffred text block, presented in an accompanying casket, small Folio Breviary: H. 30 x L. 24 x W. 17,5 cm. Casket: H. 34,5 x L. 30 x W. 28 cm. (Extremely fine facsimile edition of the Breviary of Cardinal Domenico Grimani, copy 238 of 750 published by Salerno Editrice at Rome, 2009. The Grimani Breviary is the most elaborate and arguably the greatest work of the history of Flemish manuscript illumination. In 1520 the breviary was purchased by Cardinal Domenico Grimani for the enormous sum of five hundred ducats. The breviary brought together the leading illuminators of the time and each of these artists created for this manuscript some of their most exquisite and original miniatures. The breviary contains 50 full-page miniatures, 18 large miniatures, 18 small miniatures, numerous historiated borders, 12 full-page calendar miniatures, and 12 bas-de-page calendar miniatures, all painted in vivid colours and embellished by the use of gold. The miniatures depict both sacred and secular subjects, including a calendar, psalms, hymns, texts from the holy scriptures, and prayers for the canonical hours of the day. The work is bound with crimson velvet and decorated with elegant frames, finely chiselled, that enclose golden bronze scrolls and medallions portraying on the front cover the Doge Antonio Grimani and on the back cover the cardinal Domenico. The work comes with an information folder: Breviario Grimani (ms. Lat. I 99 = 2138 della Biblioteca azionale Marciana di Venezia) Documetazione del fac-simile.) Kren, T./McKendrick, S. (2003).

      Nuremberg: Jobst Gutknecht, 1515. Small quarto. Dbd., leather tab on foredge of first leaf. Moderate soiling and dampstaining. Short clean tears at inner margin of last leaf (affecting printed area, but no loss). A very good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. An extremely rare German translation of Giovanni Rota's LA VITA DEL SOPHIA RE DE PERSIA, following an Italian edition of 1508. The text consists of reports concerning the Persian and Turkish empires sent by Rota, a doctor who had resided in Aleppo, to Leonardo Loredan, the Doge of Venice from 1501 to 1521. Also included are brief reports from other regions of the Near East. First published in Rome in 1508, another Italian edition was printed in Venice circa 1515, and a French translation appeared in Jean Lemaire de Belge's LE TRAICTIE INTITULE DE LA DIFFERE[N]CE DES SCISMES ET DES CONCILLES DE LEGLISE, printed in Lyon in 1511. It has been suggested that Rota's writings were published in part to create interest in Christian Europe in a new Crusade. These reports, particularly the present German translation printed in newsletter format, can also be seen as responding to a market strongly interested in reports from the Near East and Asia. Extremely rare. Not in OCLC, CATALOG OF THE JAMES FORD BELL LIBRARY, or British Library's STC GERMAN 1455-1600. VD16 records copies in Munich, Berlin, and Budapest.

"[Colophon:] Venice:: Aldus Manutius for Giovanni Pietro Valla, December 1501.

      "First and only edition of the first great humanistic Renaissance encyclopaedia, an extraordinarily rich collection of translations from classical authors, and "une des plus belles productions des presses Aldines" (Graesse). It contains the first printings of any of the works of Archimedes, Apollonius, Autolycus, Eutocius, and Hero of Alexandria, Valla's own commentaries on Euclid (the first to be printed based on the Greek text), and the first printing of Ptolemy's star catalogue (the <i>Almagest</i> was not printed until 1515). "For the next forty years at least, <i>De Rebus Expetendis</i> remained almost the only printed source of reference for the works of Apollonius, Archimedes, the Eutocius commentaries, and Hero. It was used extensively by Leonardo [da Vinci] and Copernicus" (Rose 1975, p. 48). Leonardo owned a copy of <i>De Expetendis</i>, translated sections from it into Italian, and used it in his work on geometric proportions. <i>De Expetendis</i> is now recognized "as one of the most important direct sources of Leonardo's mathematical knowledge" (Kelley & Popkin, p. 45, n. 55). Copernicus, who studied the book in Padua, learned from it of the heliocentric ideas of Aristarchus; he also "made heavy use of the mathematical excerpts translated by Valla from such Greek authors as Archimedes, Autolycus and Ptolemy. Moreover, Copernicus used a star-catalogue printed by Valla which differs significantly from that of Ptolemy" (Rose 1975, pp. 123-4). <i>De Expetendis</i> was also an important source for Johannes Werner's work on conics (1522), and for Francesco Maurolico's editions of Apollonius, Archimedes, Autolycus, and Hero (composed in the 1530s though published later).<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: Livio Ambrogio (bookplate); other bookplates removed.

        GENESIS: UND GAB IHREM MANNE AUCH DAVON, UND ER ASS. ELLE A DONNÉ AU MARIS QUI EN MANGEOIT. NON HABEBAT FIDEM, QUI.

      - This fine scene shows Adam and Eve in the earthly paradise of the Garden of Eden. Ridinger&#146;s interpretation of this traditional Biblical scene is iconographically true to scripture in that Adam and Eve are shown just as they are about the sample the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Evil. As said in Genesis 3.6: "When the woman saw that the tree was good for eating and a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable as a source of wisdom, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave some to her husband, and he ate." Adam and Eve are surrounded by a great garden of verdant foliage, well watered by rivers, and inhabited by exotic animals. Indeed, while Eden always called for a great abundance of fauna, the various types of animals shown on the artistic interpretations of the scene varied depending on the artist, time and region. Ridinger&#146;s interpretation is especially vivid and shows a great awareness of a vast number of creatures from across the globe, some with ancient standing and some relatively novel to European art, including: armadillos, peacocks, baboons, monkeys, bear-cats, ringtails, pelicans, dogs, deer, eagles, and rhinoceros. The rhinoceros had been included in a number of important artist interpretations of the Garden of Eden ever since the animal had become a pan-European source of fascination in the wake of Albrecht Dürer&#146;s famous 1515 engraving of the animal.

        PYNDARUS DE BELLO TROIANO / ASTYANAX MAPHAEI LAUDENSIS / EPIGRAMMATA QUAEDAM DIVERSORUM AUTORUM. Sexto Id. octobris MDXV.

      ab Hieronymo Soncino 1515 Testo latino. Cm.16x9,8. Pg.80 non numerate. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Alcune chiose manoscritte cinquecentesche. Fu per l'intero Medioevo che il "De Bello Troiano", altrimenti noto come "Ilias latina", venne attribuito a Pindaro. La narrazione romanzata della guerra di Troia ebbe del resto, nel corso dei secoli, numerose altre attribuzioni, da Cornelio Nepote (che l'avrebbe dedicata a Sallustio) al religioso di Efesto Darete Frigio, citato sia nell'Iliade che nell'Eneide, che l'avrebbe composta addirittura prima di Omero, fino al cretese Dictus, originario di Cnosso e compagno di Idomeneo. Nella presente, rara, edizione sonciniana del 1515, ristampa di quella analoga del 1505, questa epitome della guerra di Troia in 1070 esametri viene attribuita dunque a Pindaro dal curatore Francesco Poliardi, nativo di Fano, che vi unisce l'"Astyanax" e gli "Epigrammata". L'epopea di Astianatte, figlio di Ettore, si deve all'umanista Maffeo Vegio (Lodi, 1407 - 1458), seguace di Bernardino da Siena e del Panormita e canonico in San Pietro, mentre la copiosa raccolta di Epigrammi si deve al certosino lavoro di trascrizione di Giacomo Costanzi il Giovane (Fano, 1473 circa - 1517) sotto la supervisione illuminata di Lorenzo Astemio (Macerata Feltria, 1435 circa - 1508). > Sandal, 51.

Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834).

        De Proportionibus Motuum

      Woodcut printer&#39;s device at foot of final leaf. 16 leaves. Folio, modern boards. [Bologna: Hieronymus Platonicus de Benedictis, 1515]. The earliest surviving edition of this extremely rare work, a "presentation of Achillini&#39;s research in the field of dynamics. A proponent of the Peripatetic School and an Averroist, Achillini criticizes Bradwardine&#39;s attempts to modify the Aristotelian approach to motion... "&#39;In his treatise on the proportion of motion Achillini raised the question whether more recent mathematicians had detected Aristotle in error on that subject. He further asked whether the proportion of velocities in motions was equal to the proportion of proportions moving to their resistances. He cited Euclid, Averroes, and that stalwart medieval trio, Jordanus, Campanus, and Calculator, more than once. He thought that moderns such as Paul of Venice, Albertutius (i.e. Albert of Saxony), and Thomas Bradwardine erred from the ancient mathematicians because they were unwilling to insert between two extremes like eight and one any mean which was not smaller than the greater number and greater than the lesser number. Jordanus, on the contrary, did not care whether the mean was greater or less than the extreme.&#39;-Thorndike: V, 41... "Stillwell: 718 lists his De distributionibus ac De Proportione motuum, 1494, noting that though it is cited by the Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke on the basis of Hain, Maittaire, and Panzer, no copy of that edition is known to exist. Apparently ignorant of the present edition, Stillwell cites its appearance in the Opera omnia, Venice, 1545, as the earliest available."-Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 5. Achillini (1463-1512), graduated from Bologna in 1484 with his doctorate in both medicine and philosophy. "He is remembered for his considerable activity in research on human anatomy. He gave a good description of the veins of the arm, and he described the seven bones of tarsus, the fornix of the brain, the cerebral ventricles, the infundibulum, and the trochlear nerve. He also described, exactly, the ducts of the submaxillary salivary glands...Finally, to Achillini is attributed the first description of the two ossicles of the ear, the malleus and incus."-D.S.B., I, p. 46. Achillini was highly regarded as a teacher. Fine copy. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. .

        TWO WINTER ANTIPHONAL VOLUMES, in Latin, ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM

      [?Rhineland, c.1515] 2 volumes. Folio (530 x 365 mm). COLLATION: Volume one: 371 leaves: 17 (i cancelled blank), 2-298, 306, 31-468, 476 (vii and viii cancelled blanks, catchwords, some signatures, intermittent contemporary foliation in red Roman numerals on versos; Volume 2: (530 x 365 mm), 388 leaves: 16(lacking i, cancelled blank, and ii), 2-278, 287(lacking viii), 29-478, 489(8 + ix), 502, 514, some signatures, original foliation in red Roman numerals on versos of alternate folios from iii-xxxvi, the alternate numbers added in black ii-xxxvii, first two gatherings with outer stitching guards cut from a manuscript vellum choirbook; both volumes written in black ink in a gothic bookhand in nine lines between two double verticals ruled in black and 18 horizontals ruled in plummet under nine four-line staves of music, each stave ruled in green, black, red and black, justification: 353 x 230 mm, ff.367-371 of Vol. I and ff.383-8 of Vol. II in two columns of 24 lines between four verticals ruled in black, the outer double ruled, and 25 horizontals ruled in plummet, rubrics in red, text capitals touched red, large initials in blue or red or black and red, some flourished in black with foliate forms; ILLUMINATIONS: Volume one: two very large penwork initials in grey, five flourished initials in varied colour combinations, some with staves with faces, 20 VERY LARGE INITIALS IN FULL COLOURS,WITH BIRDS, BEASTS, FACES AND FOLIAGE two with gold; Volume 2: 16 very large flourish initials in varied colour combinations, eight very large initials painted in full colour with stylised foliage and birds, four with liquid gold, TWO VERY LARGE HISTORIATED INITIALS (some original repairs to parchment unstitched, slight wear to margins, volume 2 lacking two written leaves and with f.382 trimmed up to text). BINDING: Contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards with brass corner- and centre-pieces, catches, clasps and end-pieces to straps, Vol. I with tabs and assembled pastedowns of paper with one fragment of a noted liturgical manuscript, vol. II with printed calendar of Johannes Virding of Hassfurt dated 1516 as pastedowns, with figures of Jupiter, Mars and Saturn (Vol. I lacking two cornerpieces from both upper and lower covers, top of lower joint splitting; Vol. II lacking one corner-piece from lower cover, scuffed). PROVENANCE: 1. The two matching winter Antiphonal volumes must each have belonged to a larger set to complete the liturgical year. Although misleading to describe them as Volumes I and II, since they did not belong to a single muti-volume set, the distinction will be followed here for convenience. With their matching bindings, identical layouts and similar decoration, the volumes presumably came from two sets in use either within the same church or by two very closely linked churches, perhaps a Benedictine mother and daughter house, from the inclusion of St Benedict among the few feasts from the Sanctoral. In both volumes, St Agnes is specially celebrated: by two historiated initials in Vol. II and by having her name written in red in Vol. I. In one of the historiated initials in Vol. II, a canon is presented by St Agnes to the Crucified Christ, f.229v. At his feet are the arms, gules, a billhook proper, as borne by the family of Lüder in Hesse. The same coat of arms appears on a cutting of the resurrected Christ appearing to the Magdalen within the N of Noli me tangere in Cambridge University Library, Ms Add. 4165(7), which apparently comes from the same choirbook as 25 cuttings in the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Ms 997.158.157. Among these are three initials showing a Benedictine Abbess and an especially elaborate initial for the feast of St Benedict himself, suggesting that the dismembered book was made for a house of Benedictine nuns, see P. Binski and S. Panayotova eds, The Cambridge Illuminations, 2005, no 63, where the billhook is identified as a sickle and associated with the Franconian family of Streitberg.. Book.

        Boetius de consolatione philosophica & de disciplina Scholarium. Additum est Carmen iuvenile Sulpitti.

      Iohnnes Clein, Lyon 1515 - [c.1515]. 4to. pp. [280]. p.[280 blank]. Colophon dated "nono kale[n]das Octobris" (23 Sept.). Title page printed in red and black inside woodcut architectural border. Woodcut printer's device (Sylvestre 132). Printed in Roman font with the surrounding commentaries printed in Gothic. Text contains decorative initials. Bound in contemporary blind stamped paneled calf boards; re-backed preserving original spine. Later antique endpapers with inscription on front-free endpaper dated "1925"; front and rear blank fly-leaves worn. Pages are generally clean with occasional marginalia in an old hand (i.e. several small inscriptions written on the title page); minor spotting; lower corner of leaf c7 clipped in margin; The hinges and inner margins to the first gathering are neatly strengthened / repaired. The outer edges to this same gathering show some wear - i.e. a few marginal tears (sealed), and light soiling. The bottom margins on conjugate leaves a2 and a7 are trimmed about ½" (12 mm). Anicius Manlius Boethius (480-524) was a late Roman philosopher and statesman. He became embroiled in a plot against Theodoric, the Ostrogothic ruler of Rome, and was eventually executed. Boethius wrote his most famous work, the "Consolation of Philosophy," while awaiting his fate in prison. The five sections discuss the capriciousness of fortune, the influence of good and evil, and the nature of God's control over the universe (i.e. free will, providence and fate). The work employs the Platonic notion of an ascent of the soul to the Godhead through a process of contemplation and reflection. The imagery is predominately pagan; however, the author himself was strongly influenced by Christian thought. Boethius's work was immensely influential throughout the middle ages. Commentaries are provided by Josse Badius (1462-1535) and Thomas Wallensis (the latter wrongly ascribed to Thomas Aquinas). The "Ascensio explanato" has separate signatures and divisional title page. [Adams B-2290; BM STC French, p. 73; Renouard, Josse Badius II, 213; Baudrier XII, p. 268]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hoc Volumine Continentur... [Opera, edited by Nicolaus Angelius]

      Florence: Juntae, 1515. Octavo, ff. [xii], 280, italic letter, woodcut printer&#39;s device on last leaf, with six woodcuts; contemporary vellum, a bit stained, but a good copy. The pocket Macrobius. This was the first popular pocket edition of Macrobius&#39;s influential text, printed by the Giunta family in Florence; such smaller format publications were a feature of publishing in the early sixteenth century and must have looked as startlingly modern then as Allen Lane&#39;s first Penguins looked in the 1930s or ´40s. This printing includes a slightly developed form of the famous Macrobian world map with its massive southern continent (see previous item).

He was a dominician, a trained theologian who taught, preached and published mainly in Genoa and in Viterbo. He made up a number of ancient historical texts and inscriptions, and wrote commentaries on them. He was the greatest forger of the 16th century. Graesse I, 137.<br>Orosius (ca. 390-ca. 431), was a friend of St. Jerome and a disciple of St. Augustine, at whose suggestion he wrote this work. This world chronicle, the first universal history still extant to be written by a native of the Iberian Peninsula, aims to demonstrate that calamities such as famine, earthquakes and pestilence were caused not by the wrath of the neglected pagan gods, and in fact that such events had become less severe since the spread of Christinanity..

        The English Works of Roger Ascham, Preceptor to Queen Elizabeth. With Notes and Observations, and the Author's Life by James Bennet. London, "printed for T. Davies ... and J. Dodsley", (1767). 4to. Mit 1 Wappenkupfer. Vortitel, 4 S., 2 Bl. ("A List of Subscribers"), XVI, 395 S. Brauner Lederband d. Zt. mit reicher Rückenvergoldung u. schmaler, vergold. Deckeleinfassung; Gelenke aufgeplatzt, ob. Kapital beschabt, das untere mit Fehlstelle bis zur Kante des Buchblocks, Deckel mit einigen Kratzspuren u. eine Ecke stärker beschabt.

      . . Zweiter Druck der ersten Auflage. Der Humanist und Altphilologe Roger Ascham (1515-1568) lehrte in Cambridge und war Hauslehrer von Königin Elisabeth. Berühmt wurde und ist er noch heute durch zwei hier enthaltene Werke, die als Marksteine der Pädagogik gelten. Es ist die "Toxophilus" bezeichnete, zuerst 1545 erschienene Abhandlung über die Kunst des Bogenschießens und "The Schoolmaster" über die Kunst des Lehrens, die zuerst 1570 posthum veröffentlicht worden war. Bahnbrechend waren die Werke schon durch die Verwendung der Volkssprache bei der Abhandlung eines komplexen Themas. Inhaltlich geben beide Werke konkrete Handlungsanweisungen, dies aber im Rahmen fester pädagogischer Vorstellungen. Im in Dialogform aufgebauten "Toxophilus", einem der frühesten und bedeutendsten Lehrbücher des Bogenschießens überhaupt, beschreibt Ascham im zweiten Teil ausführlich Gebrauch und Handhabung des Langbogens. Im ersten Teil begründet er die Notwendigkeit, sich in der "Art of Shooting" zu üben. Er nennt die Landesverteidigung, aber er legt auch dar, dass es sich grundsätzlich für einen Gentleman gehöre, Charakter und Physis durch die Ausübung von Sport zu bilden - ein bis heute in England allgemein akzeptierter Grundsatz. Ähnlich "The Schoolmaster", ein "Schlüsselwerk" (Prange) der Pädagogik, das nicht durch revolutionäre Ideen glänzt, sondern eher langfristig durch den Eingang humanistischer Ideen in die Erziehung wirkte. Das Erlernen von Latein durch Übersetzung und Rückübersetzung von Texten sowie der Verzicht auf überharte, rohe Bestrafung waren nichts absolut Neues, aber ausgesprochen in leicht zugänglicher Form, dem Englischen, und von einem hochangesehenen Lehrer und Erzieher, veränderte es die Einstellung zur Pädagogik im Allgemeinen und zur Didaktik im Speziellen. In der hier vorliegenden ersten Gesamtausgabe von Aschams englischsprachigem Werk sind daneben der auf einer diplomatischen Mission entstandene Bericht "A Report and Discourse of the Affairs of Germany" sowie einige Briefe enthalten. Verfasser der Biographie Aschams sowie der Widmung an den Earl of Shaftesbury ist nicht der auf dem Titel genannte Edward Bennet, sondern Samuel Johnson, der allenthalben wegen seiner Gelehrsamkeit nur als "Dr. Johnson" titulierte Mittelpunkt der englischen literarischen Szene des 18. Jahrhunderts, der Bennet auf diese Art protegieren wollte. - Der hier vorliegende 2. Druck der Erstausgabe verwendet die Druckbögen des Erstdrucks, hat aber einen neuen Vortitel sowie ein verändertes, undatiertes Titelblatt. - Innendeckel mit gestochenem Wappen-Exlibris von Robert Prim (um 1840). - Schmaler Wurmgang im Falz bis etwa S. 60, sonst innen sehr gut erhalten. ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **

        Gli Asolani.

      (Florenz, Filippo Giunta, November 1515.. Klein- Oktav. Mit Druckermarke. 1 nicht nummeriertes Blatt, Blatt 2 - 120. Pergamentband des 17. Jahrhunderts mit Lederrücken des 18. Jahrhunderts, reicher Rückenvergoldung und rotem Rückenschild; gefärbter Buchschnitt.. Sehr seltene und frühe Ausgabe dieser philosophischen Dialoge über die Liebe, die als ein wichtiges "Zeugnis des Petrarkismus" (KNLL-B, 457) großen Einfluß auf die italienische Dichtung des 16. Jahrhunderts ausübten (KNLL-B, 457). - Brunet I, 766; Ebert 1920, Anm. - In den "Gli Asolani" (zu deutsch: Asolaner Gespräche), die erstmals 1505 erschienen, führen drei junge Männer und drei Edeldamen im Beisein der ehemaligen Königin von Zypern auf deren Landsitz in Asolo ein kontroverses Gespräch über "das Wesen der wahren Liebe" (KNLL a.a.O.). Den glücklichen und geläuterten Liebeserfahrungen werden die schmerz- und leidvollen entgegengestellt. Eine von Begierden freie Liebe, die sich dem Göttlichen zuwendet, wird schließlich als Lösung angeboten, in deren Gegensatz "die irdischen Reize nur ein Abglanz sind" (KNLL a.a.O.). - Pietro Bembo (1470 - 1547), im geistlichen Stande lebend, gilt als ein bedeutender Vertreter des Humanismus. Sein Hauptverdienst besteht darin, den Stellenwert des Italienischen als Literatursprache in der Renaissance neu bestimmt und belebt zu haben (siehe KNLL a.a.O.). Sein hier vorliegendes Jugendwerk widmete er Lucrezia Borgia, der Frau des Herzogs Alfonso d'Este ("A Madonna Lucretia Estense Borgia Duchessa Illustrissima di Ferrara"). Diese Zueignung wurde in späteren Ausgaben zensiert. Zustand: Berieben und bestoßen; Kanten mit kleinen Fehlspuren; Ecken bestoßen. Spiegel an den Innenecken mit jeweils kleinem Überzug des Rückenleders; fleckig. - Beigefügt: Bembo, Pietro. Asolaner Gespräche. Dialog über die Liebe. Herausgegeben und übersetzt von Michael Rumpf. Heidelberg, Manutius Verlag, (1992). 4 Blatt, S.9 - 255, 1 unpaginierte Seite. Original Pappband. - Leicht bestoßen. Kleine Anstreichung mit Kugelschreiber.

Provenance: inscription on first title Alphab[et]ico ordine disposita 1532[?]; early marginal note on n7r of first work; ?Juvenalis Caisson?, contemporary inscription or signature below colophon of last work; several other contemporary inscriptions; Count Chandon de Briailles, bookplate; John Patrick Auguste Madden (1808-1889), lithographed bookplate by Lacoste with motto "Torcular calcavi solus" [Isaiah lxiii: "I have trod the winepress alone"], cf. his Catalogue d'une Collection Importante d'Incunables, d' Impressions Gothiques du XVI Siècle (Paris 1890), no. 138 (mentioning the tear to title-leaf of first work); old inkstamped library shelfmark on front pastedown. ***A collected volume of four early sixteenth-century Paris editions of theological texts, including a collection of didactic fables, in its original blind-tooled Parisian binding. No doubt bound together for a member of the Faculté de Théologie, three of the works have a Dominican connection, and were published by (i.e., were to be found at the shop of) the Parisian bookseller Jean Petit, "libraire juré" of the Sorbonne. Further study of these typographically very similar editions may provide more clues to the unidentified presses of the pseudo-Cyrillus, the Holkot and the St. Jerome. The binding is strictly contemporary: the larger decorative roll on the covers is recorded by Gid on editions from 1520 and 1530, and the smaller roll is close to her FLg 20, found on an edition from 1504. I. The Exempla sacrae scripturae consist of an abbreviated alphabetical subject-arrangement of the Virtutum vitiorumque exempla, a "Christian imitation of Valerius Maximus" (Scholderer, p. 140), composed by the 13th-century French Dominican Nicolaus Hanapus or de Hanapis, Patriarch of Jerusalem. Like the different work known as the Dictionarius pauperum..., attributed to Nicolaus de Byard, the collection was invaluable for preachers and appeared in numerous incunable editions, in several different arrangements and with different titles, which has given rise to endless confusion, luckily and elegantly resolved by Victor Scholderer. According to Moreau?s dating, based on the different printer?s devices used, this is the third known edition printed by Barbier for Jean Petit, who published a (dated) edition in 1503, and another undated edition ca. 1508 (Moreau?s dating). OCLC lists no copies of any of the Petit editions in US libraries. Moreau II:1515/1184. Cf. Victor Scholderer, "The Virtutem vitiorumque exempla of Nicolaus Hanapus," Fifty Essays in Fifteenth- and Sixteenth-Century Bibliography, pp. 140-142 (not listing this edition).II. HOLKOT: A discussion of the gospels by the 14th-century English Dominican theologian and humanist Robert Holkot or Holcot, "an important figure in the development of English scholasticism which followed upon the work of William Ockham. Ockham and Thomas Aquinas were his two chief mentors, although he was capable of disagreeing with both, as he did, for instance, on the nature of the Trinity" (ODNB) A prolific writer and gifted scholar, Holkot assisted Richard de Bury in his book-collecting, and wrote a number of works, mainly but not only theological, which enjoyed great longevity. He was one of a group of English friars who integrated classical tales and references into their sermons and writings in order to render them more appealing. "Holcot is interesting in a number of ways beyond his undoubted role as a theologian. He was a humanist and a moralist, with a lively sense of humour described as the strongest of any medieval moralist" (op. cit.). This edition follows the text established by Matteo Mantovano, an otherwise unknown Italian Dominican, whose name appears in the proemium (a2v); it was first published in Venice in 1505, and followed by several editions catering to the theology faculties of Paris and Basel. This edition includes the earlier dedication to a Father Marinus, Dominican prior in Venice, as well as the Tabula Aurea, a subject index to Thomas Aquinas?s works compiled in the 1470s by the Dominican Peter of Bergamo. Moreau II:622, locating copies at the Newberry, LA County Law Library, BnF (2 copies), Bordeaux, Budapest, & British Library. III. Speculum sapientiae: A thirteenth-century collection of 95 fables grouped by theme, attributed here, as in all the early manuscripts and printed editions, to a "Saint Cyril," previously identified with a number of different Saint (or saintly) Cyrils, but now accepted as the work of the 13th-century Dominican Boniohannes de Messana (cf. Kaeppeli). Possibly influenced by the Dialogus creaturarum moralisatus, each of the Speculum fables shows two protagonists from whose interaction the reader can draw a moral lesson. "Divided into four books of varying length dealing with warnings against the sins of Imprudentia, Superbia, Avaritia and Luxuria" (Kratzmann and Gee, p. 21), the Speculum sapientiae uses animals, both familiar and exotic, to serve as examples of the Christian virtues and opposing vices, e.g., the ant and the wolf, the spider and the fly, the whale and the fisherman, the rhinoceros and the crow, etc. Of the eight editions listed in ISTC (the first Strassburg: Eggestein, not after 1474), three, including this one, are no doubt sixteenth-century.This is the first of two very similar undated editions published by Petit. BMC, probably correctly, gives this edition priority over Goff B-102, but ISTC confusingly reverses the order, assigning the latter an earlier date of ca. 1502. Although included in the incunable catalogues, presumably on the basis of the woodcut device, which appeared in an edition published by Petit in 1498, both editions are now dated by ISTC and GW to after 1500, and by Moreau (who lists only one edition) to ca. 1503. It may have been printed still later, given the contextual evidence of this volume. The edition was assigned by BMC to Etienne Jéhannot (active 1498-1521), which appears to be a more correct attribution than that of Pierre Le Dru (suggested by Moreau). As noted by BMC, the woodcut device is very worn, with some loss to the border, presumably indicating a late use. Goff C-1021; Pr 8371A; BMC VIII 200 (IA. 40929); GW 789410N; Moreau I:1503/38; cf. Kratzmann & Gee, The dialogues of creatures moralysed: a critical edition (1988), pp. 1-25; T. Kaeppeli, Scriptores Ordinis Praedicatorum medii aevi, I:699.IV. JEROME: Second or third edition, apparently unrecorded, of the "golden sayings" of St Jerome, containing extracts from his letters, "brought together in the manner of the bees," as stated on the title, by Pierre Cortade, a priest from the Cathedral of ?Cologne? (Rinensis prebendatum). Moreau II:1517/1635 describes an edition dated 30 October, which she assigns to the little-known press of Jacques Pouchin (or Poucin or Poussin, and of which she locates 4 copies in France and one at the British Library, but the colophon of this edition is dated 13 November 1517. Neither Moreau, BM/STC, nor COPAC mention the woodcut illustration. Whether one or two editions, the Paris edition(s) was/were copied from an edition, apparently the first, printed in Lyon in June of that year. There appear to be no copies of any edition in US libraries.

        Chronicon ... a Nino rege Assyriorum Magno: usque ad Fridericum II. Romanorum Imperatorem (hg. v. Johannes Foeniseca = J. Mager).

      Augsburg, Johann Miller 1515.. Folio. (132) Bll. Mit Titelholzschnitt und Druckermarke, beide von Daniel Hopfer. Blindgepr. Halbleder d. Zt. über Holzdeckeln (fleckig, Kanten mit geringen Beschädigungen); Schließenreste. Nach einer Inkunabelausgabe ("Hystoria Friderici imperatoris magni...", Augsburg, St. Ulrich und Afra 1472 / GW 3537), die große Teile der Chronik enthält, aber als Kompilation auch fremde Textpassagen aufweist, wird die Ausgabe von 1515 in der Regel als die "editio princeps" bezeichnet (so z.B. in den MGH: Holder/Egger, v. Simson 2 1916, S. XXXVI und Wulz [1982] S. 242). Das von Daniel Hopfer entworfene Titelblatt besteht aus "eine(r) überaus prunkvolle(n), mit Blattmasken, Füllhörnern, Putten, Fruchtstücken und Grotesken geschmückte(n) Renaissancebordüre". Sie rahmt den Titel und - unter ihm - die beiden Figuren, die den sagenhaften Gründer des Assyrerreiches, Ninus, und den Staufer Friedrich II. darstellen, ein. Die beiden Figuren werden im Gespräch gezeigt, "wobei die Gesprächspartner nebeneinander stehen und insbesondere durch ihre Gestik miteinander in Beziehung gesetzt werden. Wie Schauspieler auf einer Bühne sind sie frontal vor dem Betrachter aufgebaut..." (beide Zitate aus: Breyl, Geschichte des Augsburger Titelblattes... In: Gier u.a. [Hgg.], Augsburger Buchdruck und Verlagswesen. Wiesbaden 1997. S. 261). Burchard von Ursberg (ca. 1177 - 1231), gebürtig wahrscheinlich aus Biberach a.d. Riß oder Umgebung, stammte wohl aus niederem Adel; über seine Bildung weiß man kaum etwas, das Studium der Sieben freien Künste als Vorbereitung auf ein Theologiestudium gilt aber als sehr wahrscheinlich. 1202 zum Priester geweiht, trat er 1207 in das Prämonstratenserstift Schussenried ein, dessen Probst er schon 1209 wurde. 1215 erfolgte seine Berufung an die Spitze des Prämonstratenserklosters Ursberg bei Augsburg. Die Tatsache, dass keine in etwa zeitgenössischen Handschriften der Chronik überliefert sind, lässt darauf schließen, dass Burchard im ausgehenden Mittelalter kaum rezipiert wurde; drei Handschriften des 15. Jahrhunderts bilden so - neben den frühen Drucken - die erhaltene Quellenbasis. Handschrift P, die nur den Schluss der Chronik, das 12. und 13. Jahrhundert enthält und um 1450 angesetzt wird, befindet sich in Privatbesitz, die wichtigere und umfangreichere, die ca. 1470 entstandene Handschrift A (heute in der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek), befand sich Anfang des 16. Jahrhunderts im Besitz des Augsburger Humanisten Konrad Peutinger. Die Ausgabe von 1515 fußt schwerpunktmäßig auf ihr, dem Herausgeber lag aber wohl auch Handschrift P vor (die Inkunabel ausgabe von 1472 basiert ebenfalls auf Teilen der Handschrift A). Inhaltlich unterscheidet man einen ersten Teil, der im Wesentlichen die Chronik von den Anfängen bis ins 12. Jahrhundert enthält und vom Text her die Frutolf/Ekkehardsche Darstellung bietet, allerdings mit abweichender Gliederung und Burchards eigenen Überschriften sowie der von ihm verfassten Einleitung (vgl. die Einführung bei Becher 2007). Darauf folgt Burchards eigenständige Abhandlung der - aus seiner Sicht - jüngeren Vergangenheit (ab ca. 1190) und der Gegenwart. Als schreibender Geistlicher stand er vor einem ähnlichen Problem wie Otto von Freising: Seine eindeutige Parteinahme für die Staufer hatte genauso unverholende Kritik an der Kirche, v.a. an den politischen Ambitionen des Papsttums, zur Folge. Für das späte 12. und das frühe 13. Jahrhundert besitzt Burchards Chronik einen sehr hohen Quellenwert. Dies liegt nicht zuletzt daran, dass er beste Kontakte zur Kurie und zum Umfeld der Staufer hatte; drei Romreisen boten ihm Gelegenheit, solche Kontakte zu knüpfen, und Friedrich II. hat er möglicherweise schon auf seinem Zug nach Deutschland, bei dem er seine Thronansprüche geltend machte, begleitet (s. Becher S. 10). Der Aufbau der Chronik stellt sich im Wesentlichen folgendermaßen dar: Fol. A 1 verso enthält das Druckprivileg Kaiser Maximilians für den Verleger und ein kurzes Vorwort des Heausgebers. Fol. A 2 recto beginnt der Chroniktext mit einer Einleitung (bis Z. 37), dann folgt der Frutolf-Ekkehardsche Text (den Burchard der Zwiefaltener Handschrift entnommen hat) bis Fol. T 3 recto. Ab "Huiusque scriptoris chronica extenditur" (linke Spalte) folgt wieder Burchards eigener Text, beginnend mit einer Zwischeneinleitung und anschließend darauf verweisend, dass im vorangegangenen Teil die Zeit der Staufer ab Konrad II. zu annalistisch, nicht in einem "stilo historiographico" dagestellt worden sei, weshalb er diesen Zeitraum (ab 1125) neu in Angriff nehmen wolle. Man geht davon aus, dass Burchard mitten in der Arbeit am Text gestorben ist (mit den Friedensverhandlungen von San Germano zwischen Papst Gregor IX. und Friedrich II. 1230/1 endet der Text). Nicht nur als Quelle ist der Ursberger Chronist bedeutend, sondern auch als Überlieferer anderer, von ihm benutzten Chronisten, deren Werk verloren gegangen ist; dies gilt z. B. für Johannes von Cremona. Die Rolle seines Nachfolgers als Ursberger Probst, Conrad von Lichtenstein, wird unterschiedlich beurteilt: sah die frühere Forschung in ihm einen Fortsetzer und Bearbeiter der Chronik (so Abel/Weiland in der ersten MGH-Ausgabe 1874), findet er bei Becher nicht einmal mehr Erwähnung; die Bedeutung der Person Burchards wird nicht mehr in Frage gestellt. Das Einbanddekor ist auf beiden Deckeln gleich: Rautenbänder schließen auf allen vier Seiten ein inneres Feld ein, dass mit Einzelstempeln besetzt ist: Löwe, schreitend, nach links, rhombisch gefasst. Eine präzise Werkstattzuweisung ist nicht möglich. Provenienz: 1. Beide Deckel tragen ein geschwärztes Siegel als Supralibros, das möglicherweise nach Österreich weist, nämlich auf die Familie Stöckel v. Hertenburg (vgl. Appuhn, Siebmachers Wappenbuch, Nr. 43). 2. Auf dem unteren weißen Rand des Titelblattes befindet sich ein Besitz- und Schenkungsvermerk aus dem späten 17. Jahrhundert. 3. Ebenfalls auf dem Titelblatt ist der Besitzeintrag des Franziskanerklosters Innichen ("Inticensium") in Südtirol. 4. Vorderer Spiegel mit Exlibris eines Maximilianus Mayr. Titel noch mit stark verblasstem Bibliotheksstempel. Durchgehend schwach gebräunt, weitgehend sauber, mit vereinzelten alten Marginalien. Vorderer Vorsatz im oberen Falzbereich etwas gelöst, Titel und folgende zwei Bll. mit restaurierten geringfügigen Papierschäden im unteren weißen Rand.

        [Liber physiognomiae]. Phisionomia Magistri Michaelius Scoti.

      [Paris], Regnault Chaudiere, [um 1515].. (48) Bll. Gotische Type. Mit großem Titelholzschnitt und Druckermarke Chaudieres. Halbpergamentband. 8vo.. Seltene französische Postinkunabelausgabe von Michael Scotus' "Liber physiognomiae", wohl ein Nachdruck von Jean Petits um 1510 erschienener Ausgabe. Die mittelalterliche Schrift zu Aussehen und Wesenserkundung des Menschen, eng verwandt mit der Albertus zugeschriebenen Abhandlung "De Secretis Mulierum" (welche daraus schöpft), bildet den letzten Teil von Michaels wissenschaftlichem Hauptwerk, dem "Liber Introductorius". Das Gesamtwerk ist Kaiser Friedrich II. gewidmet, als dessen Hofastrologe Michael fungierte, der vorliegende Abschnitt sogar auf dessen Veranlassung hin verfasst. Die ersten beiden Abschnitte gelten als unsystematisch und zum Teil unvollendet; "so ist es auch nicht überraschend, dass der 'Liber physiognomiae' als einzelnes Buch angesehen wurde und sogar bis um 1500 in nicht weniger als 20 Ausgaben erschien. In den ersten beiden Teilen behandelt er die Themen Astronomie, Astrologie, Meteorologie, Medizin, Musik und Komputistik [...] Im 'Liber physiognomiae' geht er dann auf Fragen über den Geschlechtsverkehr, die Schwangerschaft, die Embryologie und die Physiognomie ein" (Wikipedia). "Based partly on portions of Aristotle's works on animals, partly on the Secreta Secretorum, and partly on works by Rhazes. It became very popular" (Ferguson). - Der aus Schottland stammende Michael Scotus (gest. um 1235) wirkte in Toledo und übersetzte aus dem Arabischen verschiedene Aristoteles-Kommentare des Averroes sowie den "Kitab fi l-hai'a", ein astronomisches Werk des Nur ad-Din al-Bitrudschi (Alpetragius). Am Hofe des Kaisers übersetzte er auf dessen Wunsch Avicennas "Abbrevatio de animalibus", welches dann Friedrich II. für sein berühmtes Falkenbuch "De arte venandi cum avibus" verwendete. - Durchgehend schwach wasserrandig und mit zeitgenöss. Anstreichungen; mehrere, zum Teil umfangreiche Marginalien und Schlußnotizen von zeitgenöss. Hand. Außerordentlich selten; über Bibliothekskataloge kein Exemplar dieser Ausgabe nachweisbar. - Vgl. Panzer VIII, 212, 2745. Caillet 10068. Ferguson II, 357.

        Boetius de consolatione philosophica & de disciplina Scholarium... Additum est Carmen iuvenile Sulpitti.

      Lyon Iohnnes Clein 1515. [c.1515]. 4to. pp. [280]. p.[280 blank]. Colophon dated "nono kale[n]das Octobris" (23 Sept.). Title page printed in red and black inside woodcut architectural border. Woodcut printer's device (Sylvestre 132). Printed in Roman font with the surrounding commentaries printed in Gothic. Text contains decorative initials. Bound in contemporary blind stamped paneled calf boards; re-backed preserving original spine. Later antique endpapers with inscription on front-free endpaper dated "1925"; front and rear blank fly-leaves worn. Pages are generally clean with occasional marginalia in an old hand (i.e. several small inscriptions written on the title page); minor spotting; lower corner of leaf c7 clipped in margin;. The hinges and inner margins to the first gathering are neatly strengthened / repaired. The outer edges to this same gathering show some wear - i.e. a few marginal tears (sealed), and light soiling. The bottom margins on conjugate leaves a2 and a7 are trimmed about ½" (12 mm). Anicius Manlius Boethius (480-524) was a late Roman philosopher and statesman. He became embroiled in a plot against Theodoric, the Ostrogothic ruler of Rome, and was eventually executed. Boethius wrote his most famous work, the "Consolation of Philosophy," while awaiting his fate in prison. The five sections discuss the capriciousness of fortune, the influence of good and evil, and the nature of God's control over the universe (i.e. free will, providence and fate). The work employs the Platonic notion of an ascent of the soul to the Godhead through a process of contemplation and reflection. The imagery is predominately pagan; however, the author himself was strongly influenced by Christian thought. Boethius's work was immensely influential throughout the middle ages. Commentaries are provided by Josse Badius (1462-1535) and Thomas Wallensis (the latter wrongly ascribed to Thomas Aquinas). The "Ascensio explanato" has separate signatures and divisional title page. [Adams B-2290; BM STC French, p. 73; Renouard, Josse Badius II, 213; Baudrier XII, p. 268]. Hardcover.

        M. Annei Lucani Civilis Belli [The Pharsalia / The Civil War]

      In Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Soceri, 1515. In Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Soceri. Hardcover. B00I2OPPRE In Latin. 1515 In Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Soceri (Venice, Italy) 3 5/8 x 5 7/8 inches tall full vellum bound with leather and gilt label to spine, 140 leaves. In verse. Dedicatory letter on verso of title leaf written by Aldus Pius Manutius, founder (in 1494) of the famed Aldine Press. Aldine device on verso of last leaf. The second Aldine edition of this work, a re-impression of the 1502 edition. The Pharsalia (also known as Bellum Civile, "The Civil War") is a Roman epic poem by the poet Lucan, telling of the civil war between Julius Caesar and the forces of the Roman Senate led by Pompey the Great. The poem&#39;s title is a reference to the Battle of Pharsalus, which occurred in 48 BC, near Pharsalus, Thessaly, in northern Greece. Caesar decisively defeated Pompey in this battle, which occupies all of the epic&#39;s seventh book. Though probably incomplete, the poem is considered on of the great epic poems of the Silver Age of Latin literature. The poem was begun around 61 AD and several books were in circulation before the Emperor Nero and Lucan had a bitter falling out. Lucan continued to work on the epic - despite Nero&#39;s prohibition against any publication of Lucan&#39;s poetry - and it was left unfinished when Lucan was compelled to suicide as part of the Pisonian conspiracy in 65 AD. A total of ten books were written and all survive; the tenth book breaks off abruptly with Caesar in Egypt. . Good. 1515.

        [Greek:] Olympia. Pythia. Nemea. Isthmia

      Woodcut printer&#39;s & publisher&#39;s devices on title, printer&#39;s device repeated on verso of final leaf. Printing in red on two leaves (b1 & A3) & printed throughout in Greek. [238] leaves (lacking the two blanks). Small 4to, early 19th-cent. red morocco, sides decorated in gilt with the arms of Marie Christine de Bourbon in gilt in center of upper cover, flat spine richly gilt, a.e.g. Rome: Zacharias Callierges, 1515. The celebrated and finely printed second edition of Pindar and the first to include the scholia. The text of this edition follows a manuscript tradition superior to the Aldine editio princeps of 1513. "So important was this edition, that it would stand for three centuries as the vulgate version of both the text and scholia."-Geanakoplos, Greek Scholars in Venice, p. 214. The Cretan calligrapher and printer Zacharias Callierges (fl. 1499-1523), was the most eminent of the Greek printers of the 15th century. He established a press in Rome in 1515 specifically for the printing of Greek texts and this famous edition of Pindar was the first production of his Roman press. It is the first book entirely printed in Greek in Rome. The Greek font is based on Callierges&#39; Venice font, introduced in the 1499 Etymologicum Magnum. Several variants (no known priority) of this edition are known: in the present copy A1-2 (Pythia) have no signatures and A3 contains red printing. A fine crisp copy from the library of Marie Christine de Bourbon (1806-78), Queen consort of Spain and, later, Regent of Spain, with her bookplate and arms on the upper cover. Due to the political turmoil of Spain and her unfortunate second marriage to a low-ranking soldier, she spent much of her later life in exile in France. Minor browning and foxing and a very small wormhole to blank portion of first leaf. Some early underlinings and annotations. &#10087; Proctor, Printing of Greek, pp. 117-25. .

        Hoc Volumine Continentur... [Opera, edited by Nicolaus Angelius]

      Florence,: Juntae,, 1515.. Octavo, ff. [xii], 280, italic letter, woodcut printer's device on last leaf, with six woodcuts; contemporary vellum, a bit stained, but a good copy. This was the first popular pocket edition of Macrobius's influential text, printed by the Giunta family in Florence; such smaller format publications were a feature of publishing in the early sixteenth century and must have looked as startlingly modern then as Allen Lane's first Penguins looked in the 1930s or ¥40s.This printing includes a slightly developed form of the famous Macrobian world map with its massive southern continent (see previous item).Adams, M59; Shirley, 13n.

        Boetius de consolatione philosophica & de disciplina Scholarium... Additum est Carmen iuvenile Sulpitti

      Lyon: Iohnnes Clein, 1515. [c.1515]. 4to. pp. [280]. p.[280 blank]. Colophon dated "nono kale[n]das Octobris" (23 Sept.). Title page printed in red and black inside woodcut architectural border. Woodcut printer&#39;s device (Sylvestre 132). Printed in Roman font with the surrounding commentaries printed in Gothic. Text contains decorative initials. Bound in contemporary blind stamped paneled calf boards; re-backed preserving original spine. Later antique endpapers with inscription on front-free endpaper dated "1925"; front and rear blank fly-leaves worn. Pages are generally clean with occasional marginalia in an old hand (i.e. several small inscriptions written on the title page); minor spotting; lower corner of leaf c7 clipped in margin;. The hinges and inner margins to the first gathering are neatly strengthened / repaired. The outer edges to this same gathering show some wear - i.e. a few marginal tears (sealed), and light soiling. The bottom margins on conjugate leaves a2 and a7 are trimmed about ½" (12 mm). Anicius Manlius Boethius (480-524) was a late Roman philosopher and statesman. He became embroiled in a plot against Theodoric, the Ostrogothic ruler of Rome, and was eventually executed. Boethius wrote his most famous work, the "Consolation of Philosophy," while awaiting his fate in prison. The five sections discuss the capriciousness of fortune, the influence of good and evil, and the nature of God&#39;s control over the universe (i.e. free will, providence and fate). The work employs the Platonic notion of an ascent of the soul to the Godhead through a process of contemplation and reflection. The imagery is predominately pagan; however, the author himself was strongly influenced by Christian thought. Boethius&#39;s work was immensely influential throughout the middle ages. Commentaries are provided by Josse Badius (1462-1535) and Thomas Wallensis (the latter wrongly ascribed to Thomas Aquinas). The "Ascensio explanato" has separate signatures and divisional title page. [Adams B-2290; BM STC French, p. 73; Renouard, Josse Badius II, 213; Baudrier XII, p. 268].

        Opusculum de mirabilibus novae & veteris urbis Romae. - (Colophon:)

      Roma, Mazzocchi, 1515.In-4. Legatura del tardo ?700 in mezza pelle, tassello sul dorso. Titolo entro bordura architettonica con un volto maschile nel timpano. 103, (1 bianco) ff.; frontespizio lievemente ingiallito e con alcuni antichi nomi a penna cancellati, qualche macchiolina ed alcune antiche sottolineature a penna; buon esemplare. Questa rarissima seconda edizione della prima guida scientifica di Roma, è identica all?originale del 1510, salvo piccoli cambiamenti al titolo ed al colophon. L?apprezzata opera dell?antiquario e storico d?arte fiorentino Albertini, è divisa in due parti. La prima tratta la Roma antica in cui vengono, tra l?altro, confutati errori e leggende sorti nel Medioevo su alcuni storici monumenti; la seconda tratta la Roma moderna, con informazioni su palazzi, chiese ed artisti che vi hanno lavorato; di notevole interesse è la descrizione della Cappella Sistina che contiene i più antichi riferimenti mai apparsi in stampa su Michelangelo. In fine c?è il ?De laudibus civitatum Florentiae et Saonis? con un elenco di fiorentini illustri ed un riferimento ad Amerigo Vespucci ed alle sue scoperte. Schudt 431. Rossetti G-218. Choix 16310. Ascarelli, Mazzocchi, 94. Harrisse I, 64 & 79. Steinmann Wittkower 16. "Titelauflage" of the first edition of 1510. «The work of the deserving bibliophile and erudite, one of the first to gather and illustrate systematically the monuments and inscriptions of ancient Rome, attracted wide popular attraction? Though Albertini was a popularizer of history and archaeology at a time when that discipline was in its earliest infancy, he laid the basis for the refutation of the errors and improbable legends tied to the Roman monuments by the Middle Ages?» (Builders and Humanists, Huston, Texas, 1966, pp. 243-244). The volume also contains the first mention of Michelangelo and a reference to Vespucci. Title within a woodcut border. Old names cancelled on title, some occasional pale soiling and staining and a few old pen underlinings; a good copy bound in 18th century half calf.
