Marco DENTE detto "Marco da Ravenna"
Bulino, 1516 circa, monogrammato in lastra in basso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre, con l’indirizzo di Salamanca. Magnifica prova, particolarmente ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione. L’opera riproduce il soggetto dell’affresco raffigurato nella parete sud della Stufetta del Cardinal Bibbiena, eseguito da Giulio Romano su disegno di Raffaello. A differenza dell’affresco, compaiono sullo sfondo una città portuale e due Eoli intenti a soffiare. Il paesaggio sullo sfondo, d’invenzione del Dente, è ricco di citazioni dureriane. Rispetto alle altre incisione del ravennate, in questa colpisce la morbidezza del tratto e l’effetto pittorico che le ombre conferiscono alla composizione, adattandosi al classicismo tipicamente raffaellesco delle forme, tanto che è stata avanzata l’ipotesi che la composizione possa derivare da un disegno di Raffello stesso. Come le altre raffigurazioni di questa serie, sarebbe stata incisa dal Dente intorno al 1516. Nella scena, Venere è rappresentata di schiena, ma il volto è girato in direzione di Amore che, con una freccia nella mano destra cerca di sferzare il delfino. La posizione sia di Venere che di Amore è piuttosto precaria, sui dorsi arcuati dei due animali marini mentre solcano l’acqua velocemente: la dea si appoggia con entrambe le mani al capo del delfino, e cerca stabilità anche con la posizione piegata della gamba, mentre Amore è appena sbilanciato sulla destra, e minaccia quasi di scivolare, afferrandosi sald … [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 tre, con l’excudit di Antonio Salamanca aggiunto in basso a destra "Ant. sal. exc." Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana della "mano", inusuali ampi margini bianchi, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La stampa corrisponde ad un affresco, orientato nello stesso senso, sulla parete est della Stufetta del Cardinale Bibbiena in Vaticano. Gli affreschi furono eseguiti da Giulio Romano e Francesco Penni da disegni di Raffaello. Nella parte superiore dell’incisione si nota la scena dell’evirazione di Urano, dai cui geniali nacque Venere. Questo particolare, oggi non più visibile nell’affresco, testimonia la conoscenza da parte dell’incisore ravennate del ricco repertorio di simboli ed immagini messo in circolazione dalle edizioni umanistiche dei testi classici. Da una controprova dell’incisione, conservata a Londra, conosciamo il disegno preparatorio perduto, probabilmente di Raffaello, come suggerisce Oberhuber. Come le altre incisioni tratte dalle scene della Stufetta, anche questa risale probabilmente al 1516. Engraving, 1516 circa, signed with monogram 'SR' lower left. Example of the second state, of three, with the publisher’s address addetta t lower right "Ant. sal. exc.". Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper with "hand" watermark, inusual wide margins, very good condition. The scene is after a fresco of Cardinal Bibbiena's Stufetta in the Vatican Palace, completed 20 June 1516 by Giulio Romano and Giovanni Frances … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marco DENTE detto "Marco da Ravenna"
Bulino, 1516 circa, privo di firma, in basso a sinistra, su un gradino, il nome dell’inventore: 'RAPH VRBI PINXIT/IN VATICANO'. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Esemplare nel secondo stato di sei, con il nome l’excudit di Antonio Salamanca e la data 1545 sul primo gradino EXCUDE/BAT ANT. /SALAMAN/CA 1545. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, rifilata alla linea marginale, piccole ossidazioni, traccia di piega centrale al verso, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione riproduce, in controparte, l’affresco di Raffaello della Stanza dell’Incendio, in Vaticano, realizzato intorno tra 1514 -1517 circa. Nell’incisione la composizione è adattata al formato rettangolare. Si tratta della prima traduzione a bulino del celeberrimo affresco di Raffaello. Engraving, 1516 circa, inscribed lower left on the step: 'RAPH VRBI PINXIT/IN VATICANO'. Example of the second state of six, with the Antonio Salamanca’ address added on the first step EXCUDE/BAT ANT. /SALAMAN/CA 1545. Good proof, printed on conteporary laid paper, with illegible watermark, trimmed close to the platemark, some stains, central folded, generally in good condition. Reproduces in reverse Raphael's fresco in the Stanza dell'Incendio of the Vatican, painted around 1516. The print adapts the composition to a rectangular format. This is the first engraving after the Fire in the Borgo fresco. Bartsch XV.33.6; Raphael Invenit, p. 54, no. I.1; Cirillo Archer in TIB 1995, 2801.035.S2; Höper 2001, no.

Varthema, Lodovico di.
Strasbourg, Johann Knobloch, 1516. 4to. 226 pp., final blank f. With title woodcut and 47 woodcuts in the text (including 1 full-page illustration). Blindstamped dark blue morocco by Riviere & Son with giltstamped spine title. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. The first illustrated edition (in its second issue) of one of the most famous early travel reports and the first western encounter with the Arab world. Of the utmost rarity; not a single copy could be traced on the market for the past sixty years; not a single copy in the USA (cf. OCLC). Lodovico de Varthema’s "Itinerario" describes the first recorded eyewitness account by a westerner of the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. All early editions of Varthema’s "Itinerario" are exceedingly rare (even the 2013 Hajj exhibition at the MIA, Doha, only featured the 1654 reprint; cf. below). This - the first illustrated one - is certainly the rarest of them all: international auction records list not a single copy. The 1510 editio princeps was offered for US$ 1 million at the New York Antiquarian Book Fair in April 2011. - Varthema, a gentleman adventurer and soldier from Bologna, left Venice at the end of 1502. In 1503 he reached Alexandria and ascended the Nile to Cairo, continuing to Beirut, Tripoli, Aleppo and Damascus, where, adopting Islam and taking the name of Yunas, he joined a Mameluke escort of a Hajj caravan and began the pilgrimage to Mecca. Varthema was amazed by what he observed: "Truly I never saw so many people collected in one spot as during the twenty days I remained there", he begins, and arriving at the Gre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Du fait d'un beau-père brutal, il peut à peine lire à quinze ans. D'une curiosité insatiable, il étudie très jeune à Trèves, puis, de 1480 à 1482, à l'université de Heidelberg. En 1480, à Heidelberg, il crée avec quelques étudiants une société initiatique, la Confrérie celtique (Sodalitas celtica) ; le fameux hébraïsant et kabbaliste Johannes Reuchlin en fait partie. L'hiver 1482, en rendant visite à sa mère dans son village, il est surpris par une tempête de neige, il se réfugie dans l'abbaye des bénédictins de Sponheim près de Bad Kreuznach, dans le diocèse de Mayence. Il décide d'y demeurer et de se faire novice. Il prononce ses vœux le 21 novembre 1482. Il est élu abbé, à 22 ans, en 14831. Trithème se lance alors dans un projet ambitieux : rénover l'abbaye, qui était dans un état lamentable, y instaurer la discipline et en faire un lieu d'études. L'abbaye avait été mal dirigée pendant de nombreuses années, les bâtiments tombaient en ruine et les moines étaient oisifs la plupart du temps … [Click Below for Full Description]

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!!

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."

(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]

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.

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.

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.

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]

[x], clxvii [ie, clxvi], [10], ccxxxiii [ie, ccxxii] leaves (6 leaves, Ai-iii, siv (folio cxl), Ffviii (folio ccxxvi) and Ggvi (folio ccxxxiii), which includes the title page and the final leaf with colophon on verso) in expert facsimile. Full-page blank before the title reads in early manuscript: Fabians Chronicle. C.a.d. Concordance des histoires, ou Chronique d'Angleterre en de France. Par Robert Fabian. Londres, 1516. 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. Mundane political matters enlighten the reader as to the political situations of the common man, descriptions of the pageantry, and examples of prose, all provide t … [Click Below for Full Description]
