HAMMER-PURGSTALL, Joseph von.
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. The book, printed in only 300 copies, has been largely overlooked in the literature on ornithology and Islamitica, but Schwerdt notes that it is "particula … [Click Below for Full Description]

TRIGAULT, Nicolas.
De Backer & Sommervogel VIII, col. 238, 4; Streit V, 188. 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. The cords were never attached to the vellum cover and the endleaves never pasted down, so that the cover is held on by the headbands laced through at the hinges.

Mediolani, in Officina Minutiana, 1515. In-24 gr. (mm. 136x94), p. pergam. ottocentesca, tit. impresso al dorso, tagli dorati, 15 cc.nn., 1 c.b., CCCXLVI cc.num. Dedicato, con parole di profonda devozione, a Lucrezia Borgia. Al fine “Vita” dell’autore “per Georgio Anselmo. Al. R. Messer Piramo di Pepuli”.

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. Choix de Olschki,IX,12693 - The British Library, p. 162 - Brunet,I,1701. Con frasi ms. di appartenenza e con piccolo timbro “Bibliotheca Heberiana” (timbro particolarmente apprezzato dai bibliofili perchè indica la provenienza dalla straordinaria biblioteca del londinese Richard Heber, 1733-1833, che arrivò a collezionare ca. 200.000 volumi antichi. Così Diz. Treccani,V, p. 735). Esemplare ben conservato. Raro.

Gellius, Aulus: (Egnatius, J.B., ed.)
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.

CORDUS, Valerius.
Adams, G-522/[5]; Durling 1033; Osler 646/[5]; Sinkankas 2366/5. 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.

Concoregio, Giovanni.
(Venice, heirs of Ottaviano Scoto, 19 Febr. 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). Bound in a sumptuous modern morocco binding decorated with rollstamps showing Renaissance heads, likely for the 20th-century physician and collector Piergiorgio Borio (his bookplate on the front pastedown).

Agostino de MUSI detto "Agostino VENEZIANO"
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.

Straßburg Johann Grüninger Deutsche Erstausgabe, 1515. Original Post-Inkunabelblatt mit zweispaltigem Text und einem 3/4-seitigem Holzschnitt (17 x 15 cm). Blatt mit Randläsuren. Signatur "g". Blattgröße: 30 x 20,5 cm. Das Blatt stammt aus dem bedeutesten und berühmtesten Werk der lateinischen Dichtkunst. Die 12-jährige Arbeit an der Aeneis hat die Lebenskraft Vergils aufgezehrt: als er im Jahr 19 v. Chr. starb, hatte er noch nicht die letzte Feile angelegt (Kindler 1964, I, 222).

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 ausgesproch … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Johannes Ehmann
Gütersloher, 1515. Eine neue Perspektive auf die oft bekannt geglaubte Einstellung Luthers zum IslamDie Auseinandersetzung mit »den Türken« gehört zu den Problemen, die Martin Luther von den reformatorischen Anfängen bis zu seinem Lebensende begleitet haben. Von den politischen Implikationen des Ablasskampfes bis hinein in die Bekämpfung seiner theologischen Gegner sind die Türken präsentals Reichsfeinde, als Zerstörer der von Gott gesetzten Ordnung, als gewalttätige Häretiker und irrgläubige »Mahometisten«.Während die Türken und ihre Rolle in der Geschichte des Reichs und der Territorien schon häufig Gegenstand wissenschaftlicher Untersuchung waren, hat die Frage des Islam als des »türkischen« Glaubens in der Theologie Luthers bisher eine der Fragestellung angemessene Darstellung nicht gefunden. Diese Lücke füllt Johannes Ehmann mit der vorliegenden Arbeit. Er zeichnet den Weg nach, den Luther in der Erfahrung der durch die Türken hervorgerufenen Krise theologisch beschreitet bis hin zu einer Wertung der Türken und des Islam. Über den Autor: Johannes Ehmann, geb. 1958, Dr. theol., ist seit 2007

GAGUIN, Robert
Paris, François Regnault & Jehan Frellon, (1515). ____ Très rare gothique illustré par 9 bois gravés. Une des toutes premières éditions en français du "Compendium super Francorum gestis" de Robert Gaguin; la traduction est de Nicole de La Chesnaye. Le prologue et la continuation du livre jusqu'à François Ier sont de Pierre Desrey. Ces Chroniques sont essentiellement consacrées à ce que l'auteur connaît : la guerre de Cent ans, les guerres d'Italie, le règne de Charles VIII et de Louis XII. C'est l'oeuvre majeure de Robert Gaguin, le plus grand humaniste parisien de la fin du quinzième siècle. Disciple et successeur de Guillaume Fichet, l'introducteur de l'imprimerie en France et le restaurateur des études classiques, Gaguin avait pris la tête d'un cercle accueillant de jeunes humanistes étrangers tels que Pic de la Mirandole, Erasme, etc... Louis XI et Charles VIII le chargèrent d'importants missions diplomatiques en Allemagne, en Italie, en Angleterre et en Espagne. Cette édition, sans date, est très proche ou identique (la collation est la même) à celle de G. Du Pré et Lepreux, qui est datée de 1515. Caractères gothiques et lettres initiales criblées.

CLUTIUS, Augerius (Outgert CLUYT).
- 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.
