Desiderius Erasmus
Basel: Ioannis Frobenii, 1516. THERE IS A STORY BEHIND EVERY BLEMISH! Bible leaf collectors know that some leaves are hard to look at and others look as new as the day they left the printing press. The condition of a particular leaf reflects its history and is not an indication of its actual value. Perfect leaves are ones that have seen little or no use over the centuries in contrast to those that are scarred by the ravages of time. Unblemished leaves are unloved leaves because they have had little contact with sinners. Imperfect leaves tell a story. Some are torn and ripped and worn away by excessive use while others have burns or worm holes and still others are water stained by flood and sometimes even tears. Each ugly mark or stain is in fact a beautiful witness to the Word of God, which, "liveth and abideth forever." We offer Bible leaves as we acquire them letting their condition speak for themselves. All our leaves are sold as seen on eBay. You may request additional images and information for any leaf. Choice Leaves, Finer than Gold, from the Word of God Taste and see! It's sweeter than honey!!

Paaw, Petrus
Leiden: Justus van Colster, 1615-1616. First Editions. Very good. Small 4to. 3 works in one vol. I: [16], 188 pp. + 1 (of 2) ff., lacking final leaf with dedicatory verse, but with the Errata leaf (neither of which are present in copies at Countway and elsewhere). Title-page woodcut after Durer's Dance of Death series. II: [22] (of 24, lacking title-page with author's portrait on verso), 270 pp. III: [2], 128 pp. Some plates with old repairs. Bound in contemporary polished Dutch vellum, yapp edges (textblock detached from vellum casing at end), spine lettered in early MS. All first editions. Our copy is distinguished by having the spectacular folding Theatrum Anatomicum plate, engraved by Andries Jacobsz Stock after a painting by Jacob de Ghein, not present in all copies. This celebrated illustration depicts an anatomical demonstration by Paaw surrounded by two dogs and ca. 50 men: knights, savants, peasants, and burghers, who can be differentiated by their clothes. Above all stands a skeleton holding a banner which bears this inscription: Mors ultima linea rerum. The illustration was based on that which appears in Vesalius' Fabrica (Paaw was a great champion of Vesalius and published his own edition of the Epitome in 1616). Ad 1: "First fruits of the anatomy of human bones," Paaw's principle work, ILLUSTRATED WITH 25 FINE ENGRAVINGS in the text. In this work appear several important discoveries in Craniology and Osteology.

Marcantonio RAIMONDI
Bulino, circa 1516. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Esemplare del secondo stato di tre con l’indirizzo del Salamanca. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scudo con stella e lettera M", con sottili margini, piccoli strappi restaurati nei margini, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione illustra alcuni episodi tratti dal primo libro dell’Eneide. Derivata dalla celebre Tabula Iliaca Capitolina, ne rappresenta una contemporanea traduzione a stampa, espressamente richiesta da Raffaello a Raimondi, e da quest’ultimo eseguita, con ogni probabilità, nello stesso anno. Le scene, chiuse entro pannelli, sono riprodotte alla maniera dei rilievi antichi mentre il grande campo nel mezzo è concepito alla maniera di un quadro. La scena principale descrive le flotte troiane in balia di una tempesta, con Enea che alza le braccia al cielo in gesto implorante. In primo piano Nettuno, a cavallo della quadriga, placa le onde del mare pronunciando minaccioso le celebri parole "Quos ego!". Bellissima e rara opera del Raimondi. Engraving, about 1516. After Raphael. Example of the second state of three, showing the address of Antonio Salamanca. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "shield with star an letter M", with margins, some small tears repaired at the margins, otherwise in excellent condition. The composition shows some episodes from the first book of the Aeneid. Derived from the famous Tabula Iliaca Capitolina, represents a simultaneous translation in print, specifically requested by Raffaello to Raimondi, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marco DENTE detto "Marco da Ravenna"
Bulino, 1516 circa, firmato in lastra in basso a sinistra, nell’immagine, con il monogramma 'SR'. Esemplare nel secondo stato di quattro, con l’excudit di Antonio Salamanca aggiunto in basso a destra "Ant. sal. exc." Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, inusuali margini bianchi (sebbene quello di destra è aggiunto in epoca), uno strappo restaurato nel margine bianco in alto a destra, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. La stampa riproduce un affresco, oggi perduto, che occupava la parete ovest della Stufetta del Cardinale Bibbiena in Vaticano. Gli affreschi furono eseguiti da Giulio Romano e Francesco Penni da disegni di Raffaello. La data 1516 riportata sulla "Venere ferita dal dardo di Cupido" (Bartsch XIV.218.286) di Agostino de Musi, tratta da un altro affresco della Stufetta, suggerisce una datazione per tutte le sei stampe del ciclo. Se la figura di Venere è raffaellesca, il paesaggio sullo sfondo è probabilmente ispirato a una xilografia di Albrecht Dürer. Massari sostiene che sia impossibile determinare se Dente ha usato come modello per la stampa un disegno preparatorio di Raffaello o di Giulio Romano. Engraving, 1516 circa, signed with monogram 'SR' lower left. Example of the second state, of four, with the publisher’s address addetta t lower right "Ant. sal. exc."

Le titre s'inscrit dans une belle bordure typographique. Bel exemplaire revêtu à l'époque d'une belle reliure humaniste estampée à froid, parfaitement conservée.

DV1702-23) CALEPINO (Ambrosio).
(Paris), venudantur ab Jodoco Badio et Joanne Parvo, (1516). in-folio. 398ff. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure française du 18e siècle). Belle édition parisienne imprimée par Josse Bade du célèbre dictionnaire dont la langue française, non sans humour, a adopté le nom pour désigner "un petit carnet de poche" (Grand Robert). Paru pour la première fois en 1502 et souvent réimprimé, cet imposant volume devint le dictionnaire latin de référence jusqu'à la grande refonte du Thesaurus latin de Robert Estienne en 1531. Badius, sur le titre même de cette édition, "se plaint des contrefaçons dont ses impressions sont l'objet ; il vise certainement l'usage fait par Nicolas des Prés de son nom, à la souscription, et de l'emploi d'un cadre imité du sien" (Renouard). Page de titre réparée loin du texte, et encollée. Très bon exemplaire par ailleurs. Renouard, Bibliographie de Josse Bade, p. 256 n°5 (le n°4 est la notice d'une édition contrefaite par Nicolas des Prés comportant exactement le même collationnement). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

[viii], CCLVI, folio, late 18th- or early 19th-century ?Scottish (?Scott) Russia, single gilt fillet on sides enclosing an elaborate blind tooled border and central panel featuring a Greek key interspersed with foliage, spine blind tooled in compartments and lettered in gilt direct, wide inner dentelles tooled in blind and gilt and the green/gray paste-downs blind tooled, gilt edges, covers detached. An esteemed edition. There is a contemporary ownership inscription at the foot of the title. There is, possibly in the same hand, or one nearly as early, on the verso of the last leaf a transcription of William Whittingham's metrical versions of Psalm 23, 'The Lord is only my support', subscribed 'Andro Challmes' - although this calligraphic signature is more like the hand of another transcription of part of the same text lower down, which is written in an italic hand. Andro 'Chalmes' has also written his name on fol. CCLV verso. This points to a Scottish provenance, a supposition borne out by later ownership inscriptions.

PAUSANIAS
Basilae (Bâle): Per Ioannem Oporinum. First edition of the famous translation of Abraham Loesher, the best edition and the most faithful according Keyboard. The Princeps of this text dates from 1516 edition, printed by Aldus in Venice, but according to Brunet (Iv, 454), although rare, it was made on a bad script and was performed negligently, giving all its importance to the edition we present .. Published in Colophon. Thumbnail of the printer on the back of the last leaf, with the inscription Arion. Historiated initials. Full contemporary calf. Nerves back again at the end of the nineteenth century, with jewels and casters on the nerves, part of title in red morocco. Corners redone. On upper cover, gilt G. Harrosset. Many scratches on boards. To work on the lower flat. The bottom of the title page has been strengthened 1cm. Light traffic accidents: A pale wetness in low margin (another high margin on a few pages) ranging in fading to page 48, taking over the last 20 pages and index. Work worm between page 26 and 46 in the lower right corner. A second of 349-413 in right page margin at the very bottom. Pausanias was a geographer and writer of the second century AD. JC's description of Greece is a testimony of the first importance on Greece to Roman times, particularly in the second century of the Christian era, although Pausanias often delights to mix history and mythology. In the manner of a modern travel guide, it provides, as and when its route, a detailed list of sites they visit and legends related to it.

Desiderius Erasmus

ADELPHUS, Johannes.
Strassburg, Johann Knobloch, 1516.Folio. Old vellum (leaf from an antiphonar. With 26 half-page woodcuts (7 repeats). 48 lvs.First published in 1513 - A extensively illustrated Turkish chronicle from its beginnings to 1500, with special emphasis on the crusades. The work records the first Ottoman siege of Rhodos in 1480. The beautiful woodcuts show battles and other scenes from the Middle East, presenting Ottomans, European kings and noblemen, and crusaders bearing the cross on their clothes and banners. Some woodcuts show a perspective and style reminiscent of mediaeval art, while others are good examples of Renaissance work showing modern perspective and rendering each figure with personal character. (Koc I, p 27). Johannes Adelphus (1485-1523) was a phycisian from Strassbourg. He took a keen interest in Turkish affairs, producing also a Historia von Rhodis (Strassbourg 1513). He depicted the Ottomans primarily as a military force marching on horses and attacking cities and islands. (Hajdarpasic 2018)Göllner 80 (seltene Druck); not in Weber, Blackmer or Atabey.

Gregory I, Pope, ca. 540-604; Tornacensis Alulphus, ed.
Bertholdus Rembolt, 1516. Previously unprinted commentary on the New Testament from Gregory the Great, edited by Benedictine monk Tornacensis Alulphus. Gregory I spent time as a Benedictine monk, regularized parts of the Mass, and was known as "one of the most commanding figures in ecclesiastical history"; his analysis here begins with Matthew and ends with the Apocrypha. Searches of WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956 reveal only two U.S. institutions holding this uncommon edition (Harvard and Southern Methodist University); another was printed later in the same year at Strassburg by Joannem Knoblouch, dated 28 July, while the colophon here gives 15 January as a production date. The title-page is printed in red and black, with a three-piece decorative woodcut border featuring wyverns and other mythical creatures, and Rembolt's printer's device; following the index, there is also a => large in-text woodcut of Gregory handing a book (his commentary, most likely) to a kneeling cleric. The text is printed in double columns using black letter, with decorative and historiated initials, shouldernotes and printed manicules, and red marks to highlight the start of sentences or notes. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") on rear free endpaper.

VERGILIUS (Polydorus).
(A la fin:) Paris, Iohanne Parvo, 1516. in-4. 64ff. (le dernier blanc). Cartonnage moderne. Cette sorte d'encyclopédie contenant les inventions et découvertes, sur l'origine des sciences et des arts, sur l'astrologie et la magie, sur la médecine et l'agriculture, est le plus célèbre des livres publiés par l'humaniste italien Polydore Vergilius (1470-1555). Il fut considérablement augmentée par l'auteur en 1517 et maintes fois édité par la suite. Latiniste distingué, Vergilius résida la plus grande partie de sa vie en Angleterre où le pape Alexandre VI l'avait envoyé en mission et où il avait obtenu la cure de Langton puis l'archidiaconat de Wells. Cette rare édition parisienne manque à la BN. Un travail de ver traverse le volume dans le texte, en affectant parfois la lecture. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

RIDOLFI, Volumnio, Spoletano.
Rome: Giacomo Mazzochi, 1516. Extremely rare first edition of this influential and controversial work, an important step towards the arithmetization of the theory of proportion. In the Eudoxian theory of proportion, treated in Book V of Euclid's Elements, proportion is a relation between magnitudes of the same kind, and is not identified with a numerical value. Thus, the ratio of the diagonal of a square to a side is a valid concept in the Euclidean theory of proportion, although it is not identified with a number as this number would (in modern terms) be irrational. The evolution from proportion to numerical ratio began with Umar al-Khayyam in the 12th century and was continued by Nicole Oresme in the 14th. The most decisive progress in the modern era was made by Clavius in his great commentary on Euclid (first published in 1574). Clavius there criticized and completed the Euclidean theory of proportion, and took the first steps toward its arithmetization. According to Rommevaux (p. 72), Clavius's critique was 'certainly inspired' by the present work of Ridolfi, which treats proportions as quantities, so that proportions are just the same as proportions of quantities. Ridolfi's work was attacked by Jean Fernel in his De proportionibus libri duo (1528), who argued that treating proportions as quantities was inconsistent with Euclid, Book V, and that it fails to see when these proportions of proportions are irrational (although understanding this had been one of the major achievements of Oresme). History found in Ridolfi's favour, however, when the arithmetization of the the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Numerous woodcuts (many repeated throughout), including the large Adam and Eve on Ai, the double page woodcuts, woodcut initials. Contemporary calf, blindstamped and ruled, with the original clasps but lacking the ties; a wonderful example of an early sixteenth century binding. Some browning, wormholes, and small tears to leaves, still a superb copy with contemporary annotations. First edition of one of the earliest English chronicles, among the first of the modern era. Highlighted here are numerous woodcuts that were not included in later editions. Fabyan chronicles England and France from the founding and naming of Albion (Britain) by Brutus in the first century, through King Henry VII. Sometimes graphical, the Chronicles is of great significance for its description of the ascensions of power of the rulers of England and the ruthlessness of the Sovereigns in attaining and retaining their seat.
