        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, 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). A bit stained, but a good copy.

      Lyon: Gilbert de Villiersfor Guillaume Huyon and Constantin Fradin, 1515. 3rd Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 4 May 1515. 8vo (191 x 134 mm). 224 leaves, foliated [i] ij-ccxxiiij. Signatures: a-z8, A-E8. Colophon on E8r. Gothic types, 2 columns, 50 lines and headline, lombard and decorated initials, 5 woodcuts used 17 times (some with typeset captions). Bound in fine 18th century green vellum, spine with rich gilt floral decoration and gilt morocco lettering piece, boards little rubbed and soiled. Head of title page with old paper repair not affecting text, upper margin trimmed a bit close just touching headlines on a few pages, tiny hole in title-leaf affecting one letter on verso. First 3 leaves including the title a bit browned and spotted, otherwise quite crisp and clean. Provenance: the highest authority of the masonic order of the Scottish rite of Northern America (Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States) with fine engraved bookplate on front pastedown (motto "Deus Meumque Jus - Supreme Council 33") with signature "Inv. W.P.B. 1900" (W. Phillips Barrett, engraver). A fine copy printed on good, strong paper.----Duveen, p. 368; Palau 143725; Rogent and Duran, Bibliografia de les impressions Lullianes (Barcelona, 1927) no. 55; Baudrier XI, 107; Renouard, Badius Ascensius III, 44-45. - THE RARE THIRD (SECOND ILLUSTRATED) EDITION of the principal philosophical work of the great Catalan mystic, Ramon Lull who was killed by the Saracens in Morocco in 1315. In this, the most voluminous and comprehensive of his treatises, he expounds his entire system of philosophy, dividing the whole range of human knowledge into 16 categories, each represented allegorically by a tree (arbor). All early editions of Lull's philosophical works are rare, because his doubtful orthodoxy and his reputation as a magician and a cabbalist led to their destruction. The illustrations, cut for this book, show the trees of knowledge envisaged by Lull. Of considerable interest is the cut for the "arbor moralis", in which Christ appears as Judge with the axe, and the woodcut on fol. II recto, showing Lull being inspired by the Holy Ghost. Lull, who was born about 1232, was "one of the greatest vernacular authors of medieval Europe, the father of western orientalism, the inventor of a kind of generalised logic". (Sarton, Introd. Hist. of Science, vol. II, pt. 2, pp. 900-914.) Palau IV, p. 294. The first two editions, Barcelona 1482 (GofF L-383) and 1505 (Norton 94, with woodcuts), are both of exceptional rarity. The Arbor scientiae was extensively analysed, with reproductions from the present edition, by Frances Yates (The Art of Ramon Lull, Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, vol. XVII, 1954; reprinted in her Collected Essays, London, 1982, pp. 9-77). Lullism enjoyed a strong revival in Renaissance France in the circle of Lefevre d'Etaples and of the scholar-printer Badius Ascensius. The present Lyons edition contains the first appearance of the title-page commendatory verse by Badius. This apparently represents the beginnings of his involvement in Lull's writings. He shortly after published in Paris, between November 1515 and December 1516, five further tractates by Lull. Very Good.

        Opuscula duo singularia. I. De nuce medica. II. De hemerobio sive ephemero insecto, & majali verme.Amsterdam, Jacques Charpentier, 1634. 4to. With 3 title-pages with woodcut illustration and 14 woodcut illustrations in text. Late 19th-century(?) sheepskin parchment.

      - Rehder II, p. 70 & III, p. 327; STCN 085069728; Wellcome I, 1515; cf. Jorink, Reading the book of nature, pp. 198-201. First and only edition of two treatises by the Dutch naturalist Outgert Cluyt, the eldest son of Dirck Outgaertsz Cluyt. The first is the earliest monograph on the legendary coco de mer nut. Prior to the discovery of the Seychelles in 1743 were its trees grow, this strange double coconut was sometimes found on distant shores, such as those of the Maldives. These rare nuts were traded for hefty sums, and were said to have several miraculous properties. Clutius prescribed the coco de mer, in combination with other drugs, for a dozen of different ailments, including epilepsy, paralysis, convulsions, dysentery and difficult labours.The second treatise is the earliest monograph on mayflies. Since classical antiquity the mayfly, which in its adult status lives only for a few hours, had been popular as a metaphor for human existence. Clutius states in his book that he wanted to compare his own observations with the accounts of classical authors. Interestingly, he also devotes a large number of pages to observations made by acquaintances and anonymous commoners. "There is no indication that he had seen the insect alive, nor is there any evidence that he examined dead specimens with a microscope or magnifying glass" (Jorink). Clutius's text would form a starting point for Johannes Swammerdam, who in 1675 solved the riddle of the mayflies' short lifespan by describing their long infancy.With an owner's annotation (in French) on the back of the first endpaper. Binding somewhat damaged at the spine. Browned throughout, notably quire N, with some spots, and the foot margin of the title-page and O3 crudely reinforced, but still in good condition.

      Title within ornate woodcut architectural border. Woodcut printer's device on title. 26 unnumbered leaves. Small folio, cont. pigskin-backed wooden boards, spine & boards stamped in blind, orig. brass catches on upper cover, one (of two) orig. clasps. Paris: N. de La Barre for E. Le Fevre, 6 October 1515. [bound with]:-. Arithmetica Speculativa…duodecim libris demonstrata. Title within ornate woodcut architectural border which is printed in red & black. Woodcut printer's device on title. Several woodcuts in the text. 100 unnumbered leaves. Small folio (some foxing). Paris: N. de La Barre for E. Le Fevre, 18 December 1515. First edition of two very uncommon mathematical works, printed in Paris. "After studying the arts and theology in Zaragoza, Lax (1487-1560), taught in Paris…Lax had an agile mind and an excellent memory, but he became so engrossed with the logical subtleties of the nominalist school that he was soon known as 'the Prince of the Parisian sophistae'…Lax taught at Paris until 1523…In 1525 he taught mathematics and philosophy at the studium generale of Zaragoza. He remained there until his death, at which time he was vice-chancellor and rector… "Lax achieved greater fame as a mathematician than as a logician or as a philosopher. He published his Arithmetica speculativa and Proportiones at Paris in 1515…The first is described by D.E. Smith as a 'very prolix treatment of theoretical arithmetic, based on Boethius and his medieval successors' (p. 121). The Proportiones is a more compact and formalistic treatment of ratios, with citations of Euclid, Jordanus, and Campanus; unlike most sixteenth-century treatises on ratios, however, it does not deal with the velocities of motion in the Mertonian and Parisian traditions."-D.S.B., VIII, p. 100. These two works of Lax are bound with three other unrelated (apart from size and date) but interesting and scarce books: 1. Agricola, Rudolphus. Dialectica. Louvain: T. Martens, January 1515. Second edition of his masterwork, in which he describes how he taught a deaf child to communicate orally and in writing. It is a pioneering work in education. 2. Alciati, Andrea. In tres posteriores Codicis Iustiniani annotationes. Strasbourg: J. Schott, 1515. First edition of an uncommon legal work. 3. Hilarius Pictaviensis, Saint. Opera complura. Paris: Jodocus Badius, 1510. The first collected edition of the writings of Saint Hilary (ca. 315-ca. 368), bishop of Poitiers, and an outspoken champion of orthodoxy against the Arians. Fine and complete copies. ? Lax: Moreau, II, 1153 & 1154. Smith, History of Mathematics, I, p. 345. Smith, Rara Arithmetica, pp. 121-22.

        [Greek:] Olympia. Pythia. Nemea. Isthmia

      Woodcut printer's & publisher's devices on title, printer'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' 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. ? Proctor, Printing of Greek, pp. 117-25.

        La Flagellazione

      1515. "Bulino, 1515 circa, non datato, siglato in lastra con la tavoletta, in basso al centro. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre. Da una xilografia di Albrecht Dürer. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera è una traduzione a bulino di una xilografia del Dürer, della ""Piccola Passione di Cristo"". La scena rappresenta Gesù, legato ad una colonna, percosso da due uomini, mentre sulla sinistra assistono altre tre figure. La stampa appartiene alla serie di 37 stampe dedicate alla Passione di Cristo realizzate a bulino su rame, copie dalla nota serie della piccola passione su legno di Albrecht Dürer. Della serie si conoscono tre diversi stati, uno senza numerazione, il secondo con ogni esemplare numerato in basso a destra, ed un terzo stato con la numerazione inserita nella tavoletta. Raimondi copia tutti gli episodi, compreso il frontespizio, nello stesso verso, con evidente intento riproduttivo e perfino imitando con il bulino la tecnica xilografica. Omette però in questo caso il monogramma di Dürer, contrariamente a quanto avviene per altre copie dall'artista tedesco, per le quali invece si sospetta un intento di falsificazione vera e propria. La datazione delle copie di Raimondi da questa serie dovrebbe risalire alla metà del secondo decennio del XVI secolo (in ogni caso costituisce un terminus post quem la data dell'edizione del 1511), quando Marcantonio si trovava a Roma a capo di una fiorente bottega divenuta celebre soprattutto per i soggetti copiati da Raffaello. La mancanza della sigla dell'artista, nonostante la costante presenza del cartellino predisposto per accoglierla, ha fatto pensare che questa serie di rami sia stata in realtà incisa da Agostino dei Musi nella bottega di Marcantonio. Le copie di Raimondi ebbero esse stesse una notevole diffusione, venendo spesso associate a quelle di Dürer e frequentemente collezionate congiuntamente, così come avviene agli Uffizi e anche a Pavia, nella collezione Malaspina." "Engraving, 1515 circa, no dated, inscribed on plate with the tablet at the bottom center. After a woodcut by Albrecht Dürer. Example of the second state of three, with the number 15 at lower right. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed on the marginal line, in good condition. he work is an engraved copy of a woodcut by Albrecht Dürer., form the serie ""Little Passion"". It shows Christ, bound to a column, being scourged by two figures at right while three others attend at left" Bartsch XIV, p.403, n. 601 98 130

        Due figure maschili

      1515. Bulino, 1515 - 30 circa, privo di firma e dati editoriali. Da un soggetto di Baccio Bandinelli. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. La scena rappresenta due anziani filosofi, ciascuno con un libro nelle mani, con una posizione reciproca dei corpi che indica un voler prendere distanza l'uno dall'altro, forse a voler significare due ideologie diverse. Bartsch suppone che l'incisione derivi da un disegno attribuito a Baccio Bandinelli. L'opera è rarissima. Engraving, circa 1515 - 30, without date and signature. After Baccio Bandinelli. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, very good condition. The scene depicts two old philosophers holding open books, walking away from each other as if in anger; a windowed niche in background. Bartsch suggests that this engraving was done after a drawing attributed to Baccio Bandinelli. A very rare work. Bartsch XIV.330.439 73 109

Discoloration and minor stains to some leaves, rodent damage (?) to upper corners of text block with no loss to text, overall condition is very good. * A rare and interesting manuscript of statutes for the diocese of Nantes, established in the 4th century, promulgated by Francois Hamon, Bishop of Nantes from 1511-1532.These statutes, which cover a broad range of topics, including clerical duties, rules of residence, rules for students and punishment for nonobservance, offer a glimpse of Church law in Nantes shortly after the death of Anne of Brittany and before the French Wars of Religion that culminated in the Edict of Nantes (1598). The work of a talented scribe, this handsomely produced volume is a reminder that the manuscript transmission of texts continued long after the advent of printing. In some cases a manuscript was produced for a special occasion. More often, they were a less-expensive alternative to printing when only a few copies of a text were required. The high quality of the present manuscript suggests it was produced for a high-ranking cleric, such as a Bishop.

        Venere e Cupido

      1515. Bulino, 1515 - 20, privo di dati editoriali. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, sporadiche fioriture visibili sul verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La scena mostra Venere sdraiata su una sporgenza rocciosa; la sua mano sinistra tesa ad accarezzare la guancia di Eros che tiene in mano una torcia ardente. L'opera è ritenuta da Bartsch creazione di Giulio Romano, incisa da Agostino Veneziano. Armano, invece, indica Raimondi quale incisore della splendida lastra. Due timbri di collezione al verso: uno della collezione Johann Melchior von Birckenstock (Lugt 345), ed uno non leggibile. Bellissima prova di questa rarissima incisione. Engraving, circa 1515 - 20, without date and signature. A magnificient proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed close to the platemark, just occasional foxing on the back, otherwise in very good condition. The scene depicts Venus recumbent on a rocky ledge, her outstretched left hand stroking the cheek of Eros who holds a burning torch. Bartsch suggests that this engraving is by Agostino Veneziano after Giulio Romano; Armano however, considers that the engraver could be Raimondi. Ex collection Johann Melchior von Birckenstock (Lugt 345). A fine example of this very rare work. Bartsch XIV.239.318 170 237

With: (2) CORDUS, Valerius. Stirpium descriptionis liber quintus: qua in Italia sibi visas describit: ... Strasbourg, Josias Rihel, 1561-1563. 2 parts in 1 volume, containing 8 works. Folio (33 x 22 cm). With 2 title-pages, each with Rihel's large woodcut device, and about 280 woodcuts in the text (2 of distilling equipment and the rest botanical, at least some by David Kandel). Contemporary pigskin, richly blind-tooled in a panel design with owner's initials "IZV" and date "1567".

      Durling 1025; Heirs of Hippocrates 30 note; Hunt 56 note; Johnston 86; Nissen, BBI 405. Posthumous first edition of nearly all writings of Valerius Cordus (1515-1544), the "amazing young genius" (Hunt) whose premature death robbed him of the fame awarded the other great pioneers of scientific botany. Besides his famous works, also including shorter works on trees, distillation and pharmacology. Conrad Gesner (1516-1565) edited and published most of Cordus's writings for the first time in the present edition, nearly twenty years after his death, advancing knowledge of every aspect of botany, but especially phytography and pomology. Many of the 280 or so woodcuts were executed by David Kandel (1520-1592), one of the greatest botanical woodcut artists of all time. Gesner added some further descriptions, including the first Tulip recorded in Europe, seen in April 1559 at the Augsburg garden of Johann Heinrich Herwan and illustrated here for the first time, with a woodcut. Most botanical reference works describe the present edition without the 1563 supplement present here.With early owner's name at the foot of the title-page, several long marginal manuscript notes and more short ones, occasional underscoring and one opening clearly showing in the gutter the shadow of a plant that had been pressed between the book's pages. With the first leaf and last few leaves somewhat thumbed and with a small chip at their lower outside corners, a couple small marginal tears, and in the last leaves some mostly marginal water stains, but otherwise in good condition. The binding is dirty and worn, but most of the tooling remains clear. An essential keystone for any botanical collection.

        Una Musa

      1515. Bulino, 1516 - 1518 circa. Da un disegno perduto già attribuito a Raffaello. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. I disegni preparatori per questa serie non si sono conservati. L'attribuzione a Raffaello, accolta da Bartsch e Passavant, risale al Vasari che, nella Vita del Raimondi (V, 413) afferma appunto che la serie sia stata incisa su disegno dell'Urbinate. Già Delaborde dubitava dell'attribuzione, pensando invece ad un possibile allievo come Giulio Romano. Frommel, seguendo un'indicazione di Oberhuber, ne attribuisce l'invenzione al Peruzzi, datando la realizzazione al 1524 - 27 circa. Bianchi, riprende Delaborde solo in parte, sostenendo che Giulio Romano abbia disegnato solo le tre virtu teologali, mentre quelle cardinali sarebbero invenzione di Raffaello. La serie però è stilisticamente molto omogenea, e senz'altro riconducibile a un progetto unitario. Se l'attribuzione a Raffaello risulta dubitativa per l'assenza della morbidezza e organicità che caratterizzano le sue figure, l'attribuzione al Peruzzi risulta invece più plausibile: sono infatti diverse le corrispondenze tra alcune figure di questa serie con altre opere firmate dal Peruzzi. La datazione sarebbe riconducibile al 1516 - 1518, a favore della quale depone anche la tecnica esecutiva delle incisioni stesse, con le linee distanziate le une dalle altre a formare incroci semplici che si riscontra in altre opere del Raimondi riferibili allo stesso periodo. Engraving, 1516 - 1518 circa. After a drawing formely attributed to Raphael. Only state. Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the margins, in very good conditions. The preparatory design, now lost, of the series was assigned to Raphael by Bartsch and Passavant, byfollowing Vasari, and to Giulio Romano by Delaborde. Frommel, following an indication of Oberhuber, attributes the invention to Peruzzi, dating the realization about 1524 - 27. Bianchi, resumes Delaborde in part, arguing that Giulio Romano has only drawn the three theological virtues, while the Cardinals would invention of Raphael. The series, however, is stylistically homogeneous, and certainly due to a single project. If the attribution to Raphael is doubtful for the absence of softness and organic unity that characterize his figures, the attribution to Peruzzi is instead more plausible: they are different correspondences between some of the figures in this series with other works signed by Peruzzi. The dating would be attributable to 1516 - 1518, and it's supported by the engravings technique, with lines spaced from each other to form simple crosses that found in other works of Raimondi referable to the same period.

      Augsburg: H. Otmar and J. Rynman, 1515. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to [28.5 x 19.5 cm]. LXXXIX ff., woodcut title page from 5 blocks, 49 17-line woodcuts in text, woodcut initials. Quarter bound in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards with beveled edges, spine in four compartments, title in faded ink on spine & paper label affixed to top of upper board, remnants of clasps, catches missing, remnants of vellum manuscripts in binding material. Some rubbing & minor worming to spine and boards; w/o front pastedown & endpapers; edge wear and light handsoiling to first few leaves, light stain on verso of title from removed label, small marginal puncture affecting first 4 leaves; very minor staining and handsoiling here and there, minor worming at inner margins sometimes entering textblock; insignificant marginal paper loss at fols. lvii & lxxvi. A genuine, fresh and attractive example. Very rare first German-language edition (1515) of Raymond of Capua's (c. 1330-99) Life of St. Catherine of Siena (1337-80), finely illustrated with 49 woodcuts (7 of which are repeated) by Hans Schäufelein (c. 1480-1540), one of Albrecht Dürer's most gifted pupils and a key inheritor of the master's innovative graphic style. These woodcuts with their subjects are indexed in an appended register to help readers "search and find" (zü süchen unnd zü finden) them, a clear indication of their reference importance and perhaps of their devotional function as well. The volume - here preserved in entirely contemporary German blind-stamped pigskin and wooden boards - forms a substantial and important part of Schäufelein's graphic oeuvre, which numbers some 1200 woodcuts. The artist, "a gifted storyteller [who] seems to have found a natural outlet for his particular talents in the graphic medium" (Ainsworth, p. 135) and whose "prints and paintings provide[d] an important link in the spread of Dürer's style to Augsburg and Nördlingen" (Bartrum, p. 148), is principally known in the book-arts for his woodcuts for Der Beschlossen Gart der Rosenkrantz (1505) and for the Speculum Passionis Domini Nostri Ihesu Christi (1507), both from the Nuremberg press of Ulrich Pinder (see M. C. Oldenbourg for a full account of Schäufelein's book-illustration). Schäufelein, whose authorship of the illustrations is confirmed both by stylistic means and by the appearance of his 'H-S' monogram on the woodcuts of the title page and at folio lxvii, illustrates Catherine's life with scenes of her birth, youth, education, and early convent life, her visions, asceticism, torment by devils, charity, diplomatic missions, stigmatization, her long illness, and death. The volume's interest is not, however, confined to its suite of woodcuts: The Dominican Raymond of Capua was both confessor and principal biographer of Catherine of Siena, herself a mystic of primary importance in the history of late-medieval spirituality, an author of classic texts in the Tuscan vernacular, a diplomat and ambassador sent on numerous journeys to resolve tensions between papal authorities and Italian city states, the founder of the convent at Belcaro, and today one of two patron saints of Italy (with St. Francis). Buried near the Pantheon in the Roman church of Sta. Maria sopra Minerva, her head was early taken to the Sienese basilica of S. Dominico, where it is still venerated. Catherine's visions and extreme ascetic austerities (she died of what today would be called anorexia) coupled with her unprecedented political boldness have cemented her primacy among modern medievalists (see J. Hamburger and G. Signori for the most sophisticated recent work on Catherine, and J. Jungmayr's edition of the Legenda maior for a full textual history). The present volume, given the German title Hystori und wunderbarlich legend, contains in addition to Raymond's Life of St. Catherine two sermons translated from Robertus de Licio's (Roberto Caracciolo) Sermones de laudibus sanctorum (printed 1489), one on St. Catherine, the other on St. Vincent Ferrer.

        Il trionfo di Galatea

      1515. Bulino, circa 1515 - 16, siglato con la tavoletta in basso a destra. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Splendida prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, ileggere abrasioni e piccoli restauri perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. La Galatea di Raimondi, menzionata anche dal Vasari, è strettamente vicina al celebre affresco di Raffaello nella Villa Farnesina di Roma, che si ritiene iniziato nel 1511 e completato l'anno successivo. L'incisione è considerata una delle più complesse e riuscite del Raimondi, e anche una delle poche opere che potrebbe essere basata direttamente su un dipinto. Probabilmente proprio questi due aspetti, hanno causato una controversia relativa non solo all'attribuzione e datazione della Galatea, ma anche alla natura della fonte utilizzata. Se infatti Mariette, Bartsch e Delaborde celebrano l'opera come una delle migliori di Marcantonio, Kristeller ne considera erronea l'attribuzione e Davidson prova a suggerisce la partecipazione di Agostino Veneziano nell'esecuzione. I dubbi riguardano la tecnica scomposta delle linee e l'uso irregolare del puntinato sulla superficie delle figure, che conferiscono all'incisione una delicatezza velata, lontana dalla resa scultorea delle forme che Marcantonio applica dopo il 1512, con un uso del bulino che appare più controllato e raffinato. Il modello utilizzato da Marcantonio potrebbe essere stato o il disegno finito, preparatorio per l'affresco, oppure l'affresco stesso. Infatti, le corrispondenze tra il bulino e l'affresco sono numerose e puntuali. Obheruber suggerisce che la Galatea derivi direttamente dall'affresco di Villa della Farnesina. La dipendenza diretta dall'affresco potrebbe proprio spiegare le linee morbide delle figure e il tratteggio delicato dell'incisione. Marcantonio abbandona la tecnica disciplinata per ricreare la fluidità della composizione di Raffaello Circa la datazione, un sicuro terminus post quem è 1512, la prima data possibile per il completamento dell'affresco. La presenza della tavoletta, in basso a destra, suggerisce una data intorno 1515 o più tardi se questa è la data in cui la tavoletta comincia ad apparire nelle opere di Marcantonio. Quindi, una datazione dell'opera intorno al 1515 - 1516 sembra ragionevole. Il Trionfo di Galatea sembra dunque testimoniare una fase transitoria nell'evoluzione artistica di Raimondi, in cui utilizza una tecnica che ha rapidamente abbandonato a favore di un sistema di linee più controllato. Rarissima impressione coeva di questo capolavoro. Engraving, ca. 1515 - 16, signed with the tablet at lower right. A great and early impression, printed with tone on contemporary laid paper, tirmmed to the borderline, some small abrasions, otherwise in very good condition. The Triumph of Galatea is closely related to Raphael's famous fresco of that subject in the Villa Farnesina, Rome, a work considered to have been begun in 1511 and probably completed in 1512. It's one of Marcantonio's most finished and complex compositions, and is also one of only a few that could be thought to have been based directly upon a painting. Perhaps these two aspects have been the cause for the controversy concerning not only the attribution and dating of the Galatea, but also the nature of the source used. Mariette Bartsch and Delaborde praised the Galatea as one of Marcantonio's finest work, Kristeller found it unworthy of Marcanotonio, and Davidson tentatively suggests suggests the participation of Agostino Veneziano in its execution. The doubts about the quality of the work center around the noticeably unstructured technique of hatching that Marcantonio employed in its execution and the undisciplined use of stippling over the surfaces of the figures. The style gives the engraving a blurred softness that is not usually associated with Marcantonio's sculptural treatment of form after 1512. After that date Marcantonio's works display an increasingly systematic and controlled burin technique. Kristeller and Davidson attribute the coarseness of tecnique to the partecipation of an assistant; or - Davidson also suggests - Marcantonio was attempting to reproduce the soft effect of a red chalk drawing. The composition is so closely related to the fresco that the source was either a quite complete drawing or the finished fresco itslef, like Oberhuber suggests. This possibility might help to explain the unusual technique of the Galatea . About the dating, certainly it is not before 1512, the earliest possible date for the fresco's completion. The presence of the tablet, in the lower right, suggests a date of ca. 1515 or later if that is the date when the tablet first occurs in Marcantonio's work. So, a date of ca. 1515 - 16 seems reasonable. The Galathea thus seems to show the engraver in a transitional phase of his evolution, using a technique that he quickly abandoned in favor of a more carefully controlled system. A great example of this masterpiece. Bartsch XIV.262.350;, Broun - Shoemaker, The engravings of Marcantonio Raimondi, p. 122 - 124, cat.nr. 33; Passavant VI,30, 192. 289 407

        Un giovane eroe davanti ad un'ara (Alcibiade davanti a un'ara)

      1515. Bulino, 1515 - 30 circa, monogrammato in lastra: AV, in basso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. La scena mostra un soldato romano, con un elaborato elmo, in piedi, circondato da parti di un'armatura, accanto ad un altare fiammante. La figura del soldato deriva da quella di Alcibiade della Scuola di Atene di Raffaello. Il disegno con lo studio di nudo e di drappeggio, in controparte rispetto all'incisione, è conservato al British Museum (inv. 1956 - 7 - 13 - 500), e oggi ritenuto autografo di Raffaello. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti l'excudit di Antonio Salamanca. Bellissima prova, con diffuso tono di lastra, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con filigrana non leggibile, rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Timbro della collezione D'ARENBERG al verso (Lugt, 567). Engraving, circa 1515 - 1530, signed with monogram 'AV' on slab in foreground. After Raphael The scene depicts a young Roman warrior wearing an elaborate helmet and surrounded by pieces of armour, standing in front of a flaming altar. The warrior derives from the figure of Alcibiades in Raphael's School of Athens. Example of the first state (of two), before Salamanca's excudit. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with unidentified watermark trimmed close to platemark, some soiling, otherwise in good conditions. Ex collection D'ARENBERG (Lugt, 567). Bartsch XIV.358.483; Passavant VI.63.116; Raphael Invenit, p. 39, no. IV.4 187 245

        Proportiones

      - Title within ornate woodcut architectural border. Woodcut printer’s device on title. 26 unnumbered leaves. Small folio, cont. pigskin-backed wooden boards, spine & boards stamped in blind, orig. brass catches on upper cover, one (of two) orig. clasps. Paris: N. de La Barre for E. Le Fevre, 6 October 1515. [bound with]:—. Arithmetica Speculativa duodecim libris demonstrata. Title within ornate woodcut architectural border which is printed in red & black. Woodcut printer’s device on title. Several woodcuts in the text. 100 unnumbered leaves. Small folio (some foxing). Paris: N. de La Barre for E. Le Fevre, 18 December 1515. First edition of two very uncommon mathematical works, printed in Paris. "After studying the arts and theology in Zaragoza, Lax (1487-1560), taught in Paris Lax had an agile mind and an excellent memory, but he became so engrossed with the logical subtleties of the nominalist school that he was soon known as ‘the Prince of the Parisian sophistae’ Lax taught at Paris until 1523 In 1525 he taught mathematics and philosophy at the studium generale of Zaragoza. He remained there until his death, at which time he was vice-chancellor and rector "Lax achieved greater fame as a mathematician than as a logician or as a philosopher. He published his Arithmetica speculativa and Proportiones at Paris in 1515 The first is described by D.E. Smith as a ‘very prolix treatment of theoretical arithmetic, based on Boethius and his medieval successors’ (p. 121). The Proportiones is a more compact and formalistic treatment of ratios, with citations of Euclid, Jordanus, and Campanus; unlike most sixteenth-century treatises on ratios, however, it does not deal with the velocities of motion in the Mertonian and Parisian traditions."–D.S.B., VIII, p. 100. These two works of Lax are bound with three other unrelated (apart from size and date) but interesting and scarce books: 1. Agricola, Rudolphus. Dialectica. Louvain: T. Martens, January 1515. Second edition of his masterwork, in which he describes how he taught a deaf child to communicate orally and in writing. It is a pioneering work in education. 2. Alciati, Andrea. In tres posteriores Codicis Iustiniani annotationes. Strasbourg: J. Schott, 1515. First edition of an uncommon legal work. 3. Hilarius Pictaviensis, Saint. Opera complura. Paris: Jodocus Badius, 1510. The first collected edition of the writings of Saint Hilary (ca. 315-ca. 368), bishop of Poitiers, and an outspoken champion of orthodoxy against the Arians. Fine and complete copies. ? Lax: Moreau, II, 1153 & 1154. Smith, History of Mathematics, I, p. 345. Smith, Rara Arithmetica, pp. 121-22. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
