CORDUS, Valerius.
, . . First and only edition of a treatise on certain salts sometimes found in crystaline "efflorescences" from the surface of the sea, which Dioscorides and Galen had recommended for the treatment of skin diseases. The Hessian doctor and botanist Valerius Cordus (1515-1544) left this treatise unpublished at his premature death, and Conrad Gesner added a preface and "Corollarium" for its posthumous publication in his compilation, De omni rerum fossilium genere, but the treatise with corollarium is separately signed and foliated for separate publication as well. Gessner's corollarium, slightly longer than the treatise itself, refutes the popular notion that these salts were the sperm of whales. Slightly browned with some occasional stains, once resulting in a small hole (leaf 9), and some, mostly marginal, foxing. Bookblock detached from binding, otherwise in good condition.Adams, G-522/[5]; Durling 1033; Osler 646/[5]; Sinkankas 2366/5..

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.

DAUMIER (Honoré)
1515. 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]

ab Hieronymo Soncino, Impressum Fani. 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. 100 gr.

Leone X
s. l., s. e., 1515. Placchetta in 16° (cm 10 x 14), copertina ricavata da Exultet o Salterio settecentesco, in rosso e nero, pp 16, senza paginazione e con segnatura discontinua, stemma di papa Medici al frontespizio, esemplare in buone condizioni, carta brunita, parzialmente in barbe. Il volumetto contiene il testo, impresso in caratteri gotici, delle deliberazioni su tre importanti argomenti trattati durante questa fase conclusiva del Concilio di Trento: si riuscì a sostituire la Sanzione Pragmatica di Bourges con un concordato. Il concilio inoltre emise decreti nell'ambito della fede e della morale. Erano già stati emanati numerosi decreti papali a favore dei "Montes pietatis" ("Monti di pietà"). C'erano però ripensamenti contro il modo con cui questi monti dei pegni si mantenevano senza danni. Il soggetto scottante è su Usura e i "Monti di pietà"; citiamo dal testo: "Alcuni maestri e dottori infatti sostengono che non sono leciti quei Monti di pietà nei quali, passato un certo tempo, si esige dai poveri destinatari del prestito in più del capitale un tanto per ogni libbra prestata; in questo modo infatti essi non vanno esenti dalla colpa di usura e da un preciso peccato di ingiustizia... Si dà infatti usura in senso proprio quando dell'uso di una cosa che non produce niente, ci si sforza di ricavare, senza alcuna fatica e pericolo, un guadagno e un frutto". Per quanto riguarda la "Prammatica sanzione", dietro la spinta di re Carlo VII di Francia l'Assemblea del clero, riunita nel maggio/giugno 1438 a Bourges, aveva redatto 23 articoli ispirati al concilio di Basilea e n … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aldine anchor device on title and verso of last in both volumes, capital spaces with guide letters, bookplate of Syston park on pastedown. Some slight marginal spotting in places, first title very fractionally dusty, the odd marginal spot. Very good copies, crisp and clean, with good margins, in early C19th crushed green morocco gilt, covers bordered with a gilt ruled panel filled with a floral chain roll gilt, Aldus' dolphin device gilt at centers, spine with raised bands richly gilt in compartments, inner dentelles gilt, a.e.g., extremities rubbed. Second and best Aldine edition of the first work, (a corrected reprint of the 1502) and first edition of the second, from the extraordinary library at Syston Park. The work is divided into three sections, respectively comprising Catullus, Tibullus and Propertius. The first comprises the complete works of Catullus, (c.84-54 BC), 117 poems ranging in scope from the famous two-lined 'odi et amo' to the vigorous obscenities of poem 16, when Catullus wrathfully proclaims: "Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo, Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi". Catullus was the "greatest lyric poet of Rome", and Cornelius Nepos considered him one of the "two greatest poets of his own time". His poems vary in length, from 2 to 408 lines, but are mostly short and written in the lyric, iambic or elegiac metre. They give the reader a vivid impression of the poet's life, as well as serving as a useful mirro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ownership stamp on title page 'Heldenberg'; a few early ink notes on title page and a few early leaves (in an early and very neat hand) and on g1r (a larger and later hand). Sole edition prepared by Otmar Nachtgall (i.e. Nightingale, 1487-1537, his name latinised as Luscinius). Born in Strasbourg, Nachtgall studied in Paris and Italy, then travelled to Hungary, Transylvania and Greece, and on returning to his native city became attached to the circle of Wimpheling and Sebastian Brant; in 1514 he met Erasmus when he visited Stasbourg, and the great scholar came to admire his Greek learning, but they later quarrelled when they had to share a house in Augsburg. Nachtgall is well known as the humanist scholar who initiated Greek studies in Strasbourg; although an enthusiastic supporter of the new learning, he remained Catholic in religion and became unpopular at Augsburg, where he settled in 1523, because of his opposition to Protestant preaching. He was also a notable musician: in the year this fine edition of Lucian appeared, he published his Institutiones Musicae and was appointed organist at St Thomas's in Strasbourg.

Strasbourg: Johann Grüninger, 1515. Folio (272 x 198 mm). Criblé border around title, 7 woodcut illustrations (one repeat), numerous woodcut initials. Contemporary blind-stamped half pigskin over wooden boards, brass claps. Rebacked preserving old spine, lacking catches; minor worming to title (affecting a few letters) and first few leaves, a few blank margins with minor paper flaws, some light browning. Provenance: early marginalia; Joh. Wigand (signature on title); purchased from John Fleming, 1971. One of several issues of the second edition, illustrated with the same unusual set of woodcuts representing danse macabre subjects that had appeared in the first edition of 1514. Kristeller describes the full-page "Figura Mortis" cut (showing death slaying a whole family) as "a Dance of Death scene of the most moving character." The pictorial criblé title border carries the initials "E.W.", "G.W." and "V.A." Geiler's sermons held in Strasbourg Cathedral were marked by uncommon, bold and often down-to-earth turns of phrase, and great erudition. Kristeller 155; Muller II:35, 126; Muther 1435; Schmidt 146. See Minns, Dance of Death Collection, 194. Fact and Fantasy 18. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

Con 14 grandi vignette raffiguranti le sibille entro bordure architettoniche, 7 piccole incisioni in legno e 3 grandi capolettera silografici, tutte ad opera del cosiddetto "Master of Koebel's press". Pergamena rigida del XVII sec. con tre nervi, titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli rossi. La raccolta comprende varie opere, tra cui le "Discordantiae sanctorum doctorum Hieronymi et Augustini" del Barbieri, ritenuta la sua più importante produzione di carattere scientifico. In questo trattato composto per volontà dell'imperatore, egli difende, quasi polemicamente, la scuola tomistica, secondo la quale nel pensiero di San Tommaso sono contenute la scienza e la verità. Il contenuto degli altri scritti degli "Opuscula" (i vaticini delle sibille, i carmi della poetessa Falconia, il simbolo anastasiano) induce a pensare che questa raccolta fosse destinata a uso scolastico; conobbe una certa fortuna e varie edizioni, alcune delle quali successive alla morte del Barbieri.Filippo Barbieri (Barberi Filippo, Philippus de Barberis, Philippus Siculus), nato a Siracusa intorno al 1426, fece parte dell'Ordine dei domenicani, presso il locale convento dei predicatori. Si addottorò forse a Catania, insegnante di teologia, divenne famoso come filosofo e oratore. Ricoprì anche la carica di inquisitore in Sicilia e a Malta per il Santo Uffizio; durante un viaggio in Spagna con vigore persuase i sovrani a nominare tre inquisitori per perseguire gli ebrei, (i Giudei recidivi) azione peraltro implicitamente autorizzata da Sisto … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

1515. Harting 112; Schwerdt I, p. 228; not in Atabey; Blackmer. First printing in any language of three important manuscripts on falcons and falconry: a 12th-century Turkish treatise on falconry by Mahmud Ibn Mehmed al-Bargini, "Baz nama" [= Falcon book] (in the original Turkish and in German translation); the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I's ca. 1515(?) "Über die Falknerey" in the original German; and a shorter Greek treatise on hawking, "Hierakosophion" [= Hawking apprenticeship] in the original Greek and in German translation, a variant form of part of a 13th-century work by the Byzantine Emperor Michael VIII (1223-1282). Little is known about the author of the Turkish treatise, but he came from Anatolia on the southeastern coast of what is now Turkey, where he apparently worked in service of the Bey of Mentese. He cites another work from 597 AH (1200/01 CE).Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856), a leading Austrian orientalist with an extensive knowledge of languages, took up a diplomatic position at the Austrian embassy in Constantinople in 1799 and remained in Turkey and the Middle East until 1807. He found the Turkish manuscript on falconry at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan in 1825 and the other two manuscripts at the Hofbibliothek in Vienna. He not only translated and edited the present texts but also contributed a 32-page introduction and a list of 63 works on the subject of falconry, from the 15th-century to his own day.

First French edition of a biography of the Jesuit Gaspar Berse (1515-1553), who preached in Ormuz at the mouth of the Persian Gulf and Goa in India. Berse was born in Goes on the island of Walcheren in Zeeland, the Netherlands. After his studies in Louvain he went to Coimbra in 1546 where he entered the Jesuit order. In 1548 he was sent to the island of Ormuz and in 1551 to Goa where the well-known François Xavier, who would soon depart for Japan, appointed him director of St. Paul's College in Goa and entrusted him with the provincialate of the Indian Mission. He died in Goa on 6 October 1553.With engraved armorial bookplate of John Drummond of Logy Almond on back of title-page. In very good condition.

CXX, qui sapientemente riprodotta su carta antica. “Romanzo in tre libri del sacerdote parmense Iacopo Caviceo (1443-1511), pubblicato nel 1508. E’ la storia boccaccesca degli amori di due giovani, Peregrino e Ginevra, che l’autore finge d’aver ascoltato (in tre tempi) dall’ombra del protagonista stesso apparsogli in visione.. e reso piccante dalle numerose allusioni a uomini contemporanei e dalla lubricità di parecchi episodi. Godette al suo tempo di una grandissima popolarità; in mezzo secolo fu ristampato 19 volte e tradotto in francese e in castigIiano.” Così Diz. Opere Bompiani, IV, p. 394. Cfr.

8vo., ff. (xxxii), 289, (li). Imprint from colophon, anchor devices to first and final leaves. A few very faint marginal annotations in an old hand (e.g. f.147 verso). Dampstaining radiating from bottom edge, sometimes imperceptible but sometimes causing tidemarks and affecting , though by no means obscuring, text. Title-page a little grubby. Wormhole from first leaf to approx. f.166, tiny but affecting first line of text (a few letters, not legibility); a little additional worming to lower margin f.102, diminishing towards f.141. A few neat paper repairs generally to lower edge, the final leaf being particularly affected. Recent semi-limp vellum, gilt title to spine, fore-edges turned in, gilt gauffered edges, title faintly inked to tail edge, endpapers renewed. Spine a little darkened, a few smudgy marks, gilt egdes a bit worn but still very attractive. A very good copy, sympathetically rebound.Edited by J. B. Egnatius, pseud. of G. B. Cipelli, with a preface by Antonius Marsilius. Renouard finds two variations of the final leaf, one with 'duerniorem' and one with 'duernionem': this copy carries the latter spelling. He continues,'on y voit encore plusieurs autres variations du même genre: au reste le choix entre les deux est indifférent.' Dibdin notes that, 'the work does not contain any commentaries, but a double index sufficiently ample [...]. Fine copies are becoming very scarce.' A lovely example of the beauty and convenience of Aldine's unelaborated octavo volumes of popular Classical authors, highlighted with some early annotations: 'By pruning away one element - … [Click Below for Full Description]

ÁLVAREZ, Francisco.
1515. USTC 659146 (7 copies); VD16, A2067 (8 copies); cf. Gay 2603; Howgego A76. Second German edition in the present form, extensively illustrated, of "the first detailed description of Ethiopia" [Abyssinia] (Howgego), based largely on his voyages in the years 1515-1527, which included a six-year stay in Ethiopia. Álvarez (ca. 1485?-1536/41), a Portuguese Franciscan missionary, travelled to Ethiopia as chaplain on the voyage of Rui de Lima. He gives us the earliest detailed account of Ethiopia to be based in part on first-hand knowledge and therefore provides our most important primary source for the history, culture and topography of Ethiopia before it was invaded by Islamic troops under Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi of Somalia in 1529. Ethiopia at this time had large Christian and Islamic communities and the woodcut illustrations show court scenes of Ottoman and Christian rulers, siege and battle scenes and ships.The second work is a German translation of Historiae adversus Paganos , a history of the world written by Paulus Orosius (ca. 375-418/23) of Galaecia. Orosius had travelled along the entire Mediterranean coast of Africa, visiting Alexandria in Egypt, so his accounts of those regions carry special authority. The third work is largely a translation of the text of Abraham Ortelius's world atlas, Theatrum orbis terrarum , first published in Latin in 1570 and expanded over the years. The three works were clearly intended for publication together, but each has its own title-page.With an early owner's name cut out of the title-page, another struck through and replaced by … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUTOGRAPH]. MELANCHTHON, Philipp.
1515. [2] pp.Autograph letter in Latin, signed by Melanchthon to the Protestant theologian Sebastian Boetius in Halle, to recommend the young priest Christian Hertwig junior. Boetius (1515-1573), who had studied under Luther and Melanchthon at Wittenberg, succeeded Justus Jonas as superintendent of Halle and founded the famous Marienbibliothek, still in existence. In his letter, Melanchthon reminds his former student that their minds often run in the same channel, as their letters show, and describes the role of the ideal pastor. He recommends Hertwig for such a position, both on the strength of his doctrines and on that of his moral fibre.Slightly browned; traces of folds. In fine condition.l Koehler, Epistolae quaedam Phil.
