Agostino de MUSI detto "Agostino VENEZIANO" (Venezia 1490 ca. - Roma 1536/38)
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

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, Jor … [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.

VALLA, Giorgio.
"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' … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johann Elias RIDINGER (1698 – 1767). Augsburg, 1748. Etching & copper engraving (trimmed to neat-line, tiny tears in white margins, othervise in a very good condition), 38.5 x 53 cm (15,15 x 20.9 inches).
- This fine scene shows Adam and Eve in the earthly paradise of the Garden of Eden. Ridinger’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’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’s famous 1515 engraving of the animal.

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.

Ascham, Roger.
. . 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 ausgesp … [Click Below for Full Description]
