Persius Flaccus, Aulus / Murmellius, Johann (ed.).
1517. 4to. XL, (1) ff. (several errors in foliation, but complete, lacking only final blank). Decorated initials. 19th century boards (spine repaired). First edition thus of the satires of Persius, published but a month before the death of the editor, Murmellius. The work is preceded by a short biography of Persius, taken from Petrus Crinitus. Finely printed in a small "lettre bâtarde", including some Greek type, with legenda in the margins for the comments, and the main text printed in a slightly larger type, with the lines set widely apart. Georg Kloß copy, with his bookplate on the front pastedown and the relevant catalogue clipping from his sale (described as bound with an additional work) pasted above. The Frankfurt physician Georg Franz Burkhard Kloß (1787-1854) was also a noted historian of freemasonry. His rather notorious sale was held at Sotheby's in London in 1835. This volume contains long 18th c. notations on the title page about the rarity of this edition as well as a contemporary humanist's extensive marginalia in Latin from fol. C1v to D2r, then again on D5v and D6v (slightly trimmed at rebinding), mostly pertaining to the text, but also to the commentary. These early handwritten annotations were boldly attributed to Melanchthon by Samuel L. Sotheby in his 1835 catalogue of the Kloß library, an unsustainable notion against which the collector himself spoke out clearly (cf. G. Kloß, Ueber Melanchthons angebliche Handschriften, welche in dem Catalogue of the Library of Dr. Kloss verzeichnet sind, in: Serapeum 2 [1841], no. 24, p. 369-377).

OPPIANO.
in Aedibus Aldi et Andreae Soceri, 1517. in-8 antico, 1 cb, cc 168, 1 cb, rileg. antica p. perg. molle, con tracce di doratura e cesellatura ai tagli. Marca tipogr. in legno al front. e ripetuta al colophon. Editio princeps per l'opera sulla caccia e seconda edizione per il trattato sulla pesca, entrambe versate in latino per opera di Lorenzo Lippi, umanista toscano. Testo preceduto dalle prefazioni di Francesco Asolano e da una succinta, e anonima, biografia di Oppiano con testo greco. I due trattati, sulla pesca e sulla caccia, furono ritenute opere dello stesso autore fino alla fine del Settecento quando lo studioso J. G. Schneider stabilì nella sua edizione delle opere del 1776 che questi due poemi non erano stati composti dallo stesso individuo ma da due persone omonime confuse costantemente nei secoli. Per questo motivo i due poemi furono quasi sempre stampati uniti (tranne che nell'edizione della Alieutica di Firenze, Giunti, 1515). In particolare lo scrittore della Alieutica nacque in Cilicia all'inizio del II sec. Il poema composto da più di 3000 esametri e diviso in cinque libri tratta dalla storia naturale dei pesci e in particolare negli ultimi 3 libri dell'arte della pesca, dando prova di molte cognizioni zoologiche ma anche dando credito a molte favole e assurdità che sono per noi oggi forse la parte più piacevole del poema stesso. Dal punto di vista stilistico l'Alieutica è superiore al poema sulla caccia e anche questo dato fa comprendere come sia impossibile ricondurre le due opere alla stessa mano. L'autore della Cinegetica, composta da circa 2000 esametri … [Click Below for Full Description]

[ATTESTATO DI NOBILTA' DI DOMENICO GRESSEL DI TRENTO].
Tridenti, 1517. [7] p. 32 cm bella legatura coeva in piena pelle con ricchi fregi in oro e nero con applicato cordoncino in tessuto con grande sigillo in ceralacca del Principe Vescovo entro custodia metallica. Manoscritto su pergamena. Le pagine di testo sono bordate in oro. Alla pagina 6 grande stemma nobiliare a colori della famiglia con vedutina della loro residenza nobiliare nella parte inferiore. In fine firma di alcuni notabili e del PRINCIPE VESCOVO PIETRO VIGILIO THUN. Pietro Vigilio Thun (1724-1800; P.V. 1776-1800) fu l'ultimo Principe Vescovo a governare di fatto sul principato trentino fin dalla sua elezione pratica intraprese la via delle riforme in un periodo storico caratterizzato da profondi mutamenti politici e istituzionali. Nel corso di una missione a Vienna nel 1777 firma con l'imperatrice Maria Teresa un accordo che assoggetta il principato alla legislazione austriaca in materia commerciale e fiscale. Pochi anni dopo nel 1781 offre all'imperatore Giuseppe II la sovranità sul territorio trentino in cambio di un vitalizio personale. Quest'azione di Pietro Vigilio Thunn diretta al compimento dell'inevitabile processo di assorbimento del piccolo principato nell'amministrazione asburgica non ha seguito ma viene fortemente criticata dalle forze trentine più conservatrici. Con l'avvicinarsi dell'esercito di Napoleone nel 1796 il Principe Vescovo si allontana da Trento senza più tornarci nemmeno quando la situazione antecedente è ripristinata dall'intervento delle truppe austriache. Incapace di mutare il corso degli eventi Thunn non può che assistere impotente … [Click Below for Full Description]

VERGILIUS MARO Publius
1517. 2 tomi in un vol. in - folio (350x220 mm.), ff.(10), 205, 1 bianco; ff. (8), 324, (10), splendida legatura coeva in assicelle, dorso a nervi in pelle di troia con elegante decorazione, i due fermagli in pelle e metallo conservati (il piatto posteriore incrinato). Testo su due colonne in carattere romano, grande per il testo virgiliano, più piccolo per il commento di Badius Ascensius; titoli di pagina in semigotico, titoli delle due parti impressi in rosso e nero entro bordure figurate silografiche ornamentali. Celebre edizione illustrata da 207 stupende grandi silografie, alcune ripetute, le due a piena pagina raffigurano Virgilio incoronato da Calliope ed attorniato dai suoi contemporanei: Cornelius Gallus, Lucius Varius Rufus Plotius Tucca, Bavius Maevius, Mecenate, Augusto e Gaius Asinius Pollio. La famosa serie di legni fu commissionata ad un anonimo artista tedesco da Johann Grüninger ed i medesimi legni vennero una prima volta usati per illustrare il Virgilio di Sebastian Brant impresso a Strasburgo dal Grüninger nel 1502. Probabilmente Sacon acquistò i legni dopo l'edizione in tedesco del 1515. Questa sontuosa edizione di Lione contiene pure un prologo di Cristoforo Landino e commenti di Filippo Beroaldo e di altri in aggiunta a quello di Badius. Importante e magnifica edizione ed uno dei figurati del primo Cinquecento più riusciti, noti ed ambiti. Magnifico esemplare, fresco e marginoso su carta forte; al foglio di sguardia importante nota di possesso "Jacobus Tuerner est possessor hic libri Virgiliam / Anno Dni 1526", di poco posteriore all'edizione.

Domenico CAMPAGNOLA (Venezia 1500 - Padova 1564)
1517. Bulino 1517, firmato e datato in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nell'unico stato conosciuto. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame e completa della linea marginale, lieve restauro nella parte inferiore centrale, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazioni. Al verso disegno a matita sanguigna calco dello stesso soggetto. Nei palazzi rinascimentali era uso decorare le sale più importanti con scene di battaglia e di torneo, che richiedevano tutta la maestria degli artisti, nel realizzare composizioni con uomini e cavalli in movimento. I più famosi esempi del primo cinquecento sono la Battaglia di Cascina di Michelangelo e la Battaglia di Anghiari di Leonardo, entrambe disegnate per un affresco, mai poi realizzato, per la Sala dei Cinquecento di Palazzo della Signoria a Firenze. I cartoni ed i disegni preparatori dei due artisti esercitarono una grandissima influenza su tutta l'arte del Rinascimento. Nel 1513 a Tiziano fu offerto di dipingere una scena di battaglia per il Palazzo Ducale di Venezia; lavoro che l'artista iniziò nel 1537 per terminare l'anno successivo, e che fu distrutto nell'incendio del 1577. Sebbene non sia comprovabile, questa incisione del Campagnola riflette una delle prime idee del maestro per la scena di battaglia. Sicuramente è netta l'influenza del Tiziano su questa composizione; affinità stilistiche sono riscontrabili con alcune scene della celebre silografia Il passaggio del Mar Rosso, che Tiziano realizzò nel 1514. Opera molto rara. Engraving, 1517, signed and dated on plate at lower lef … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAVONAROLA, Girolamo
Cesare Arrivabene, 1517. In 8°, 104 cc. Segn.: A - N8. Frontespizio con vignetta xilografica raffigurante il frate nel proprio studio chino su uno scrittoio, iniziali ornate di diverse misure Colophon con marca tipografica xilografata su fondo nero. Leg. pergamena floscia di epoca successiva. Esemplare ottimo. Epistola dedicatoria ad Antonio Contarini, Patriarca di Venezia, morto nel 1524. La prima edizione dell'opera fu stampata nel 1497 col titolo Introductorium confessorum. Savonarola descriveva il suo "Confessionale" come un compendio breve della vasta letteratura sulla confessione e sulla penitenza e lo proponeva come una semplice descrizione dei princìpi e delle procedure che i confessori dovrebbero seguire. Nella prima parte descrive le qualità del buon confessore e i tipi di censura ecclesiastica (scomuniche, censure, interdetti, ecc.). Nella seconda parte egli esamina la prassi confessionale nelle sue fasi (il confessore, l'interrogazione del peccatore, e l'assoluzione) per interrogare i penitenti e conclude con una breve parte, De Mulierum maliciis, destinata a mettere in guardia devoti e religiosi.

This magnificent classic was produced, according to the colophon, at the command of Charles V by his printer Arnão Guillen de Brocar; this is the first intimation we have that Brocar had been appointed royal printer. Later editions appeared in Seville, 1542 (colophon: 1543); Pamplona, 1591; Valencia, 1779; and finally in 1877. (See Simón Díaz.) The large woodcuts, initials and printer's device are striking examples of the art of contemporary Spanish book illustration. The title-page woodcut shows the king enthroned, with two figures kneeling before him; one, presumably the author, is reading from a book. Lyell notes that the borders are especially fine (Early Book Illustration in Spain, p. 286, with illustration of title-page as fig. 224).

(In fine, verso ultimo foglio:) Venetiis, Impensis heredum quondam domini Octaviani Scoti Modoetiensis ac Sociorum, 21 Augusti 1517. (Venezia, Scoto, 1517). in-folio, ff.125, testo su due colonne in carattere romano, numerosi grandi e belli capilettera ornati, grandiosa impresa dello stampatore nitidamente stampata sotto il colophon. Legatura coeva piena pergamena, titolo ms: ''Avicenna'' al dorso (ininfluenti spruzzi nella parte inf. del piatto anteriore). La prima edizione di questo importante e raro commento quattrocentesco al Canone di Avicenna fu impressa a Siena nel 1485. Ugo Benzi da Siena (1370-1439) fu noto medico e docente a Bologna, Pavia, Padova, Firenze, Perugia e Parigi. Scrisse i suoi commentari a testi scientifici fondamentali, studiati nelle università che lui frequentò, durante il suo pellegrinare da una cattedra all'altra. "The Benzi family belonged to the Senese bourgeoisie: his uncle Andrea was famous doctor in Siena. Educated in the liberal arts, he later developed an interest in medicine and undertook formal studies at the University of Bologna, where he returned to re-organize the teaching of philosophy by promoting the study of the works of Averroes and Albertus Magnus; he was such successful to be called "non modo philosophus sed philosophorum princeps" (Vita, ad opera del figlio Socino, p. 152).

(HORTUS SANITATIS)
Strassburg: Reinhard Beck, 1517. This is a remarkably well-preserved copy of the LARGEST HERBAL AND MEDICAL WOODCUT BOOK that had been published to date, a work Hunt calls "the most important medical woodcut book" from the incunabular era, offered here with contemporary coloring that is almost never seen in copies of this edition. An encyclopedia of the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms and the medical applications of their products, the "Hortus Sanitatis" is an herbal of the greatest importance, offering a comprehensive view of the Medieval understanding of the natural world. Hunt says that "though based in part on the 'Gart der Gesundheit,' [the 'Hortus'] was almost entirely rewritten and elaborated upon, especially in the parts on animals, birds, fishes, stones, and minerals (all of which were less well represented in the earlier work), and in the treatise on urines; the text on herbs too is quite different, each chapter beginning with a description of the plant, its synonyms, and often something about its geographical origin, and ending with a list of the plant's medicinal virtues in a separate section headed 'Operationes.'" The present edition is the sixth overall and fourth Strassburg edition, and it is the first to separate the chapters on animals, stones, and metals from the chapters on plants. The design of the title page is variously attributed to Urs Graf, Hans Wechtlin, or Hans Baldung Grün. A few of the woodcuts are new to this edition, but most are reversed versions of the Prüss blocks, first published in 1491. According to Klebs, "the most intere … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUSONIUS, Decimus Magnus
In Aedibus Aldi et Andreae Soceri, Venice, 1517. FIRST EDITION thus. 8vo. ff. 107 [i]. Italic letter. Aldine device on t-p and last. Very faint occasional waterstains, sm. marginal piece missing from f. 18 (no loss). A very good, crisp copy vellum over bds., C1600. First and only Aldine edition of Ausonius’ work, edited by Girolamo Avanzi, member of the Aldine Academy. In his dedication to Cardinal Marco Cornaro, Avanzi praises the activity of Torresani. Tutor to Gratian, son of the emperor Valentinian I, Ausonius (c.AD 310-c.393) was successively appointed prefect of several foreign provinces and finally consul in 379. He ‘wrote a great deal of verse in a variety of metres, showing great technical ability. There are over a hundred epigrams, some of which are in Greek. He seems to have written on any theme that presented itself, such as the names of the days and months, or the properties of the number three. He particularly delighted in verse catalogues: the professors of Burdigala [i.e. Bordeaux, his native town], the famous cities of the world, the Twelve Caesars, the Seven Sages. [.] His more important and interesting poems are the ‘Ephemeris’ (‘a day’s events’), a description of a normal day in his life, his waking, talking with his servants, and so on; and the ‘Mosella’, a long hexameter poem describing in considerable detail the beauties of the river Moselle and the life that goes on around it.’ [Oxford Companion to Classical Literature], in particular the area’s wines.

In aedibus Aldi et Andreae Soceri, Venice, 1517. 8vo ff. 190 [ii]. Italic letter, anchor and dolphin device on title and verso of last, capital spaces with guide letters, C19 armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on pastedown, Shirburn Castle blindstamp to head of first two II. A very good copy in mid-seventeenth century English calf, covers bordered with a double gilt filet, spine double gilt ruled in compartments with fleur de lys at corners and central fleurons, title gilt in one compartment, raised bands, all edges speckled red. Second Aldine edition, a reprint of Aldus' edition of 1501, with the letter from Pliny the younger to Cornelius Priscus on verso of title as its only prefatory matter. Martial, certainly a Spaniard and probably a Basque, spent his working life in Rome carefully observing his fellow man and recording them for us in these exquisite vignettes. The Epigrams (Martial's most important work), are short poems, each expressing pointedly and concisely some single idea, and are generally in the form of a satire. Martial describes with the most realistic detail the vices of his age. The fortune hunters, gluttons, drunkards, debauchers, hypocrites of various kinds and stingy patrons come back to life in his verses - along with the occasional plea for a gift or a loan, thanks to a faithful friend or honest critic, or a simple hello or farewell. Many give vivid glimpses of the contemporary Roman scene, the hot sausage vendor on his round, the tiresome guest who arrives too late for breakfast and too early for lunch, others are simply obscene.

Kaiser Maximilian I. u. Mitarbeit von Stabius, Peutinger u. Pfinzing:
Augsburg, Schönsperger. Original-Pergamentblatt (24,4 x 37,2 cm) der Theuerdank-Erstausgabe von 1517 in der frühen Frakturschrift mit einem Holzschnitt (13,9 x 15,8 cm) von Hans Leonhard Schäufelein. Frisches Blatt mit sauberen und kräftigen Abdruck. Das Blatt stammt aus einem der 40 seltenen Fürstenexemplare auf Pergament von 1517. Der Druck des Theuerdank ist das buchkünstlerische Meisterwerk des XVI. Jahrhunderts in Deutschland. Die Papierauflage des Werkes in einer Höhe von 300 Exemplaren, wurde von wenigen Ausnahmen abgesehen, erst 1526, nach dem Tode Maximilians, durch Erzherzog Ferdinand einem ausgewählten Personenkreis zum Geschenk übergeben. Im Mittelpunkt der Geschichten des Theuerdank mit dem bekannten Schema, der "allten heldenpücher", steht als handelnde Person (Kaiser Maximilian). Begleitet von seinem treuen Diener Ernhold, der aber nur in ganz wenigen Fällen selbsthandelnd auftritt, macht er sich auf den Weg, die ihm bestimmte Gemahlin, Ernreich (Maria von Burgund) , zu gewinnen, wobei ihm der Teufel mit seinen Dienstmannen Fürwittig, Unfalo und Neidelhart allerlei Schwierigkeiten bereitet. Aber Dank seiner richterlichen Tugenden und mit Gottes Hilfe vermag der Held sie zu überwinden, bis es ihm schließlich gelingt, die ihm zugedachte Braut zu erringen.

AQUINAS, Thomas, Saint [ARISTOTLE]
Venice: Luce Antony de Giunta. Illustrated with a fine woodcut headpiece showing St. Thomas teaching; many decorative initials and in-text diagrams throughout, and printer's device at end. [6] 147 leaves with black letter Latin text printed in double columns. Folio, later vellum-backed boards. Venitijs, Impensis domini Luce Antonij de Giunta Florentini, 1517. A tear in the title page has been carefully mended, still a very good tight copy with some contemporary ink marginalia. Scarce. OCLC lists only 5 copies, including those at Cambridge, NYU and University of Pennsylvania. An early edition of Saint Thomas Aquinas' [1225-1274] "great commentary on Aristotle's physics-the most important scholastic commentary on this seminal text of ancient science. Aquinas the philosopher is forever entwined with Aristotle, as the former came onto the scene just as the Aristotelian corpus arrived in Latin translation, and questions of the relation between faith and reason challenged the modus vivendi that had been in effect for centuries." USTC 859417. Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
