ITALICUS, Silius
Firenze, opera & sumptu Filippo I Giunta, 1515. 1515 Silius Italicus PUNICA Second Punic War ROME Philip Junta Epic Latin Poetry The only surviving book of the epic Roman poet Silius Italicus is ‘Punica’, a fascinating work on the Second Punic War. First written during the late 1st-century, ‘Punica’ seems to have been modeled after Virgil, Livy, and Homer and follows General Hannibal of Carthage and his military endeavors. Italicus was known for his stoic influence and focuses on concepts such as emotion, reason, and destiny, through the lens of a historical recounting of Roman military leaders Hannibal and Scipio. This 1515 Philip Junta edition, published in Florence, is an extremely important edition as it was the edition that Aldus used as the basis for his 1523 printing. Edited and collected by Ambrose Nicander.

I volume: 224 carte numerate; alla prima titolo iscritto entro due tondi all'interno di elaborata scena a silografia con due alberi laterali e due aquile a sorreggere i due tondi, il tutto entro una bordura di filetti con testo all'interno; rifilata al bordo inferiore per un'altezza di mm 40, lontano dal testo.

CASTELLESI DI CORNETO (Adriano).
(A la fin:) Roma, Marcellus Silber, Anno Salutis 1515, Mense Octob. in-folio. 106ff. (le dernier blanc). Vélin souple de l'époque. Edition Originale de ces traités sur la prose latine du cardinal et humaniste italien Adriano Castellesi (c. 1460-1621), profond connaisseur de la langue latine et écrivain "au style très-pur" (Larousse). Le volume est dédié, avec une préface, à "Carolo Principi Hispania", le futur empereur Charles-Quint. Castellesi fut chargé en 1488 d'une mission diplomatique en Angleterre par le pape Innocent VIII, à la suite de laquelle il fut nommé par le roi Henri VII cardinal de Hereford, Bath et ensuite Wells. De retour à Rome il entra dans une conspiration contre le pape Leon X mais fut découvert et obligé de fuir. Il disparut alors de la scène publique peut-être retiré à Venise ou encore selon une rumeur, refugié chez les Ottomans. Le titre de ce beau volume est entouré d'une large bordure typographique gravée sur bois, illustrée de figures diverses. Au centre on trouve les armoiries de l'auteur coloriées en rouge à l'époque. Traces de vers dans les marges de quelques feuillets, quelques mouillures claires. Bon exemplaire dans sa première reliure en parchemin souple (quelques manques au dos). Cf. Grewing, "Lateinische Grammatik in Stilistik in du Renaissance" (1999). Cf. Paschini, "Tre illustri prelati des Rinascimento: Ermola Barbaro, Adriano Castellesi, Giovanni Grimani" (Rome, 1957).

L'idée du songe de Scipion est extraite de la république de Cicéron dans laquelle celui-ci attribue un rêve au jeune Scipion où se déroule une conversation entre les héros décédés de la République, et notamment son père et son grand-père. L'ouvrage est constitué des commentaires de Macrobius, notamment sur la constitution de l'univers.

Cicero
1515 Cicero Philippicae ROMAN Speeches Mark Antony Julius Caesar P. Incunable “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero An incredibly rare and impressive 16th-century book collecting the speeches of Cicero against Mark Antony. The name of this work is derived from the similarity in these speeches to Demosthenes’ speeches against Philip of Macedon. Cicero was shocked when Julius Caesar was named emperor and assassinated on the Ides of March. At that point, Mark Antony was scheming ways to avenge Caesar’s murder. Cicero was disappointed that Mark Antony had not been included in the plans to be assassinated. These speeches provide important details on the murder of Julius Caesar and the political turmoil of the Roman Republic.

BINDING: Bound in mid-19th-century dark green morocco, tooled and stamped in gold with "Heures" and sunbursts on the spine and with a gilt frame on the upper and lower boards. ILLUSTRATION: The book's illustrations combine works by two of the most prolific illuminators of late-fifteenth- and early-sixteenth-century Paris, both of whom actively supplied designs for the printing trade, but had differing artistic outlooks. The combination of new and old border cycles, and the presence of two paired opening miniatures at folios d4v-e1r and m7v-m7r, which contrast the two artists' styles, is noteworthy. Additionally, the present book includes two full-page images by an artist closely connected to the style of Albrecht Dürer, part of a set of metalcuts that Simon Vostre inserted into his books beginning around 1512. PROVENANCE: Printed in Paris by Simon Vostre, bookseller and printer in Paris. It was then in a private European collection. CONDITION: good condition. Full description and photographs available.

VITALI Giano
- Jacopo Mazzochi, Rome 15 novembre 1515, petit in-4 (14x20cm), (6f.), relié. - Prima edizione, illustrata da un titolo di frontespizio architettonico. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, ornée d'un titre frontispice architectural. Titre en caractères gothiques, texte en romains et en grecs. Les deux dernières pages de l'ouvrage contiennent un poème de Giano Vitali dédié à Francesco Santilio intitulé « Ne petat ubi bella exercentur ». Reliure moderne en plein maroquin brique, dos lisse janséniste uniformément insolé, portant le titre, la date et le lieu d'édition en doré, roulette dorée en encadrement des contreplats, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve. Un très infime frottement en tête du dos. Ancien tampon effacé sur la page de frontispice. Provenance : de la bibliothèque de Gianni de Marco avec son ex-libris et son timbre à sec. L'ouvrage a été publié par Jacopo Mazzochi, l'un des imprimeurs les plus prolifiques de la Rome du début du XVIème siècle. Dès 1510, il initia la tendance du frontispice architectural, portique d'entrée dans le livre (E.P. Goldschmidt).

Gellius, Aulus.
in Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Soceri. First of two Aldine editions published in 1515 of Gellius' only known work, with "duerniorem" on the final leaf as prescribed by Renouard. The iconic Aldine printer's device appears on both the title-page and the final leaf of text, with the fore-edge of the title-page having been slightly repaired long ago at the margin. Gellius's Attic Nights, supposed to have been written for the entertainment and education of his children, offers a rich tapestry of the life and times of the Roman Empire under the five good emperors. In an informal style Gellius ranges from law, grammar, history, and literary criticism to evening chats with fellow students and visits to the awe-inspiring villas of Herodes Atticus, the most famous philanthropist of Athens. Editor Giovanni Battista Egnazio (1478-1553), an important part of the Aldine literary circle and executor of Manuzio's will, here presents a newly revised text -- complete with two indexes and explanation of the Greek passages.

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 azi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Concoregio, Giovanni.
1515. Folio (218 x 304 mm). 101 ff., final blank. With woodcut printer's device at the end and numerous woodcut initials. Modern red morocco, blindstamped to style, with gilt spine and inner dentelle. Marbled endpapers. All edges sprinkled in red. In cloth slipcase. A rare medical compendium drawing strongly on the Arabic physicians who dominated the medieval medical schools of France and Northern Italy, including the author's treatise on fevers (fol. 68 ff.), based on Avicenna, who is variously quoted. Some of the surprisingly modern ailments discussed include tinnitus (fol. 40), diabetes (fol. 61), and manic depression (an extensive chapter, fol. 13-16). This is the third edition of the collection first published thus in 1501 (not counting the only incunabular edition of 1485). "Concoreggio, born in Milan around 1380, was made professor in Bologna in 1404 before teaching at the Universities of Pavia, Florence and (in 1439) Milan. His works are composed after the model of the Arabs, without much personal observation, and were published as a collection after his death in Pavia around the year 1440" (cf. Hirsch). - Some waterstaining to margins (more pronounced near beginning).

In 1520 the breviary was purchased by Cardinal Domenico Grimani for the enormous sum of five hundred ducats.

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.

Aldus' printer's mark on the title and on the last page. Printed completely in italics. The edition has no notes, but the last 102 pages contain a double index, one of them with an explanation of the Greek passages in Gellius. § There are two slightly different editions of this date, 1515, copies with a printing error in the colophon of the last page (duerniorem), and copies with the correct reading (duernionem). Our copy has the error) (Condition: Cover very scuffed, and worn at the extremities. Corners bumped. Back very rubbed. Upper board loose. Lower hinge cracking, but strong. Shield and gilt on the back gone) (Note: The Roman author Aulus Gellius, ca. 125-180 AD, was never counted as a major author in antiquity, nor later. His only work 'Noctes Atticae' or 'Attic Nights', is a miscellany that 'ranges from literature to law, from wondrous tales to moral philosophy; one of his favorite topics is the Latin language'. (.) The exposition, in a mildly archaizing but never difficult Latin, often takes the form of dialogues with or between culturally eminent persons whom Gellius had known'. It derives its name from the fact of its having been written during the long nights of a winter which the author spent in Attica as a young itinerant student.

Iunius Iuvenalis Opus quidem divinum antea impressorum vitio: tetrum: mancum: & inutile: nunc autem a viro bene docto recognitum: adeoque diligenti castigatione excultum: tum in commento deficiat: ut facile legentibus videre est. Scribente Ioanne britanico: viro eruditissimo. Una cum figuris suis locis apte dispositis. Nec non elegantissima tabula nomiter revisa: quae omnia secundum alphabeti ordinem mirisice complecti RARISSIMA EDIZIONE di Giovanni Britannico edita dal noto stampatore Giorgio Rusconi (Milano 1470 - Venezia 1522).BRITANNICO, Giovanni. - Fratello maggiore di Angelo, Giacomo, Gregorio e Benedetto. S'ignora l'anno della sua nascita. Nel 1470-71 è a Padova, ma non si sa se vi abbia conseguito la laurea. A Brescia tenne scuola di grammatica e di retorica al canton dei prati. Nel 1481, coi tipi di Gabriele di Pietro e di Paolo suo figlio, pubblicò in Brescia i suoi commentari a Persio, che dedicò al Senato e al popolo bresciano. Il Consiglio comunale pro aliquali remuneratione laborum suorum gli concesse un premio di 25 ducati e l'esenzione dai carichi. L'opera, ripubblicata nel 1486 dal fratello Giacomo insieme col testo latino, ebbe grande successo di ristampe in Italia - specie a Venezia - e all'estero. Pure coi tipi del fratello Giacomo il B. pubblicò nell'85 un commento all'Achilleide di Stazio, ma, come il commento ad Orazio del 1518, non ebbe un successo paragonabile a quello ottenuto col commento a Giovenale del 1501, pure dedicato al Senato e al popolo bresciano. Per tutto il secolo XVI il suo Persio e il suo Giovenale furono preferiti a quelli di altri umanisti famosi.Rusconi è considerato uno dei più prolifici e longevi tipografi italiani del suo secolo. La sua produzione spaziò dai classici latini, in lingua originale e in traduzione, tra cui Terenzio, Plinio il Vecchio, Tito Livio, Ovidio, Virgilio, alle opere di autori contemporanei come Boiardo, Sannazzaro, Lorenzo de' Medici e altri, ed è attestata in circa 200 edizioni.Di origine milanese
Venetiis per Georgius de Rusconibus Mediolani, 1515. testo in latino; capilettera ornati; 16 vignette xilografate, una all'inizio di ogni satira; numerose sottolineature e glosse manoscritte

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.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

CATULLUS, TIBULLUS, PROPERTIUS;
Alde Venise 1515. In-8, 148 feuillets et (2 feuillets), le dernier portant au verso l'ancre aldine. Signatures: A-D8 E10 AA-DD8 EE4 a-i8. Plein maroquin brun ; encadrement de deux filets à froid, et d'un filet droit doré lié dans les angles par des demi-cercles dorés. Au centre du plat supérieur, inscrites dans un tondo doré, les lettres CAT, TIB, PRO. Au centre du plat inférieur, allégorie de la Fortune. Emplacement pour quatre lacets. Reliure italienne du temps, très probablement issue d'un atelier travaillant pour Alde. (Coiffes et coins anciennement restaurés ; dos changé, probablement au XIXème siècle ; mors légèrement épidermés. Gardes renouvelées. Quelques petites taches d'encre et salissures dans les marges. Un manque dans la marge de gouttière de i1 a été comblé ; une déchirure sur i2 a été restaurée). Belle impression en caractères italiques, gravés en 1499 par Francesco Griffo, à la demande d’Alde Manuce. Il existe deux éditions aldines de ces trois poètes. La première édition sortie des presses d’Alde Manuce (1449-1515) est de janvier 1502. Elle est en 150 feuillets non chiffrés. Elle n'a pas d'ancre aldine au dernier feuillet, sur lequel sont simplement repris les trois noms du titre : Catullus, Tibullus, Propertius. La deuxième édition est publiée en mars 1515. Elle est identique à la première pour la composition typographique et la collation. C’est en fait une remise en vente de l’édition de 1502, mais avec des feuillets chiffrés ; elle s'achève par l'ancre aldine, qui est apparue pour la première fois dans l’édition des Poetae christiani veteres de janvier 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

GELLIUS Aulus
(In fine, colophon:) Venetiis, in aedibus Aldi et Andreae Soceri, settembre 1515. in-8, ff. (32, ultimo bianco), 289, (51), magnifica inusuale legatura coeva ? probabilmente toscana ? in marocchino bruno, con bordura a secco sui piatti a decorazione floreale racchiudente altro motivo che si sviluppa in verticale, dorso a tre nervi con trapezi a filetti che s'intersecano sul lato minore sui cui sorge un fiore; assolutamente genuina, con piccole mancanze agli spigoli ed agli angoli. Impresa tipografica al titolo, ripetuta in fine; carattere corsivo e passi in greco. Dedica del curatore G.B. Egnazio (Cipelli) al proprio notaio Antonio Marsilio, unico esempio di dedicatoria nelle Aldine di quegli anni ispirata da un sentimento di amicizia e non da fini commerciali; del medesimo Egnazio sono anche i due ampi indici, il primo con i titoli dei capitoli, il secondo con la spiegazione dei passaggi in greco. Prima ed unica edizione aldina, in seconda tiratura, recando nel registro al recto dell'ultimo foglio il termine corretto "duernionem" (nella prima tiratura "duerniorem"). Esemplare appartenuto a Teofilo Gallaccini del quale sono la firma e lo stemma con tre galli, parzialmente cancellati con striature ad inchiostro bruno, ma leggibili sopra il titolo a stampa; di suo pugno è una lunga nota sulla storia romana, che cita Gellio e Tacito, ed una chiosa nel margine del f. 49. Del Gallaccini bibliofilo è testimonianza il "Catalogo di opere antiche e moderne italiane e forestiere" della Libreria Giovanni Gallarini librajo bibliografo (agosto 1856, p. 296 n. 10126 1.60) in cui figurava … [Click Below for Full Description]

DAUMIER (Honoré)
- S.l., Signée en bas à droite des initiales HD, première moitié du XIXe siècle, plaque de verre peinte en couleurs sur les deux côtés, 25,4 x 22 cm, coins coupés en biseau (sur 7,5 cm). Delteil 1515. "Inventaire du Fonds Français XIXe s.", p. 503, n° 201, pl. 39. Rarissime spécimen de peinture sur verre réalisée d'après Daumier. Dans une chambre, une homme en chemise, des savates aux pieds, bâille et s'étire ; par terre une paire de guêtres, et sur une chaise une carnassière et un fusil de chasse. L'artiste a employé une technique particulière: le verre est peint sur les deux faces afin d'obtenir un effet de profondeur. La lithographie originale avait été insérée dans la suite "Les bons bourgeois" (82 planches, 1846-49) ; Jean Adhémar ajoute au titre: "le réveil du chasseur". Le support, certes insolite, n'est peut-être pas le fruit du hasard: rappelons en effet que le père de Daumier, Jean-Baptiste, exerçait à Marseille la profession de verrier et encadreur, avant de venir se fixer en 1816 à Paris, où il présenta ses productions poétiques à Louis XVIII. Cette belle peinture sur verre pourrait dès lors témoigner d'une tentative de perpétuation de la tradition familiale. Cette plaque a fait autrefois partie d'une série de quatre peintures sur verre d'après Daumier, toutes situées dans des chambres et représentant des scènes nocturnes ou des réveils: on peut imaginer que ces peintures étaient destinées à orner un paravent ou une fenêtre de chambre à coucher. Objet de grande curiosité, en parfait état. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
