Quintus Curtius Rufus; Erasmus, Desiderius (editor); Paulus Orosius
Strasbourg: Schürer, 1518. Folio. [4], LXXXIX leaves; [10], 124 pages. Late sixteenth (?) century leather; light scuffing, hinges cracked but cords holding tightly; insect damage to text block with loss of text throughout; margins in Orosius trimmed close, affecting title image.First printing of Erasmus' critical edition of Quintus Curtius. This first century Roman biography of Alexander the Great was an early Renaissance bestseller, with editions from at least a dozen printers throughout Europe by 1517. Erasmus brought it as reading material on a voyage to England in 1517, and finding the text incomplete and corrupt, he prepared his own critical edition. This was first published by his friend Strasbourg printer Matthias Schürer in 1518. Erasmus' version proved so popular that five more printers had issued their own editions of his text by 1541; these in turn were reprinted a total of five more times by 1575. This first edition is scarce on the market, with Rare Book Hub locating only one sale at auction since 1971, at PBA in 2008 for $2,400.Bound with: Paulus Orosius, Adversvs paganos historiarvm libri septem. Cologne: Eucharius Cervicornus, 1526.

Venice: Lucantonio Giunta, 2 March 1518 [1519]. ONE OF THE FIRST PRINTED OFFICES FOR HOLY WEEK ¶ 179, [1] leaves | 12mo | A-P^12 | 131 x 74 mm ¶ An early pre-Tridentine Office of the Holy Week, a discrete office excerpted from the more comprehensive Breviary and Missal. It contains a variety of texts for the Catholic Church's holiest week, including a blessing for the palms, the passions of St. Matthew and St. Luke, Lamentations of Jeremiah, the ferial office, and more. Title vignette with Saint Benedict flanked by Saints Placido and Maurus may suggest Benedictine use. ¶ The present is among the earliest examples of this particular liturgical genre. The only precursors we've traced are a 1494 Valencia Hores de la setmana sancta segons lo us del Archibisbat de Valencia, a 1499 Milan Officia partis hebdomadae sanctae secundum Breviarium Ambrosianum, a 1512 Barcelona Officia trium dierum septimane sancte, and the first Giunta edition of the text (1513). Editions proliferated following the Council of Trent, though we find only some two dozen published before 1564. ¶ Printed in black and red throughout, with six full-page woodcuts (plus the title vignette), and numerous woodcut initials and vignettes. Full-page woodcuts include Jesus's triumphal entry into Jersualem; Jesus dining with Simon the Pharisee; the Last Supper, signed "ga[?]"; the crucifixion, with Mary Magdalene hugging the foot of the cross; placing Jesus in the tomb; and Holy Communion. ¶ We trace a single copy only (NY Met).

Second, third, and fourth editions respectively of these three works by David Ricardo (first editions published 1815, 1816, and 1822), bound together in a contemporary binding, sympathetically rebacked. "Following his involvement in the bullion controversy, Ricardo's next significant publication was his Essay on the influence of a low price of corn on the profits of stock... As its title suggests, the Essay was written in opposition to (controversial) proposals for the imposition of new, higher duties on the importation of corn. Ricardo's central argument was as follows. On the assumption that free importation is prohibited, the increasing demand for corn from a growing population would have to be met either by the more intensive cultivation of land already under the plough, or from new, less fertile or more disadvantageously situated land. Either way, the expansion of output would tend to encounter diminishing returns which would in turn lead to a higher price of corn, higher money wages (since corn, or bread, … [Click Below for Full Description]

POMPONIUS MELA, IULIUS SOLINUS.
Venice, in aedibus Aldi et Andreae Soceri October 1518. Octavo (162 x 98 mm.), 233, [4] leaves, woodcut printer's device on title-page and on last leaf. A very fine and genuine copy in contemporay limp vellum with manuscript title on spine.  First Aldine edition of this erudite collection of geographical works of the Classical world. The anthology is opened by Pomponius Mela's De situ orbis and Iulius Solinus' Polyhistor, but comprises also minor works such as the Itinerarium Antoninum, the description of Rome by Publius Victor, and the Latin in verse translation of Dionysius of Alexandria's Periegesis.This book reflects the humanistic interest in ancient geography and toponymy, which had been growing since Petrarch's rediscovery of Mela's and Pliny's descriptions of the world and the Latin translation of Claudius Ptolemy's Geographia, realized in Florence by Manuel Chrysoloras in the very last years of the 14th century.Pomponius Mela was a Spanish-born Roman geographer contemporary with the emperor Claudius. His Chorographia, written in ca. 40 D.E., is the earliest extant Roman geography. It consists of a summary of scientific geography, with a brief account of the earth and its three continents (Europe, Asia, and Africa), followed by detailed descriptions of the Mediterranean countries, Gaul, Germany, the Northern islands, India and the Persian Gulf, alternating purely geographical information with curious narratives on peoples, customs, legends and natural phenomena. Adhering to the Greek tradition of descriptive geography, Mela presented the geography of the world as a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Faber Stapulensis, Jacobus (i.e. Jacques Lefevre d'Etaples
Thomas Anshelm Badensis, 1518. Hardcover. Small 4to. 30 ff. Collation: aa - ff4, gg6, COMPLETE. Woodcut title page with columns and cherubs. Bound in 19th-century pale glazed boards, expertly rebacked. Very good. MARY MAGDALEN AND THE "QUARREL OF THE MAGDALENS." -- Lefevre d'Etables' "De Maria Magdalena et triduo Christi disceptatio" (1517) argued that Mary (sister of Lazarus), Mary Magdalene, and the penitent woman who anointed Christ's feet were THREE DIFFERENT PEOPLE. His claim provoked considerable debate - known as "the Quarrel of the Magdalens" - that continued into the 1520s. It is an extraordinary fact that the "Quarrel of the Magdalens" would find heated debate, nearly 500 years later," in the backlash against Brown's "Da Vinci Code" and his depiction therein of Mary Magdalene. -- "The opinion [of Lefevre d'Etaples], new at the time, gave rise to a violent controversy; refutations by Noel Bedier, syndic of the University of Paris, and John Fisher, the martyr-bishop of Rochester, appeared; they were followed by the condemnation by the Sorbonne in 1521" (Catholic Encyclopedia). Lefèvre's argument, undertaken with impeccable scholarly exegesis, effectively undermined the existence of one of the most popular saints of the Middle Ages. Lefèvre also had his defenders. In response to Grandval's apologia, Josse Clichtove published "Disceptationis de Magdalena, Defensio" in April 1519 in which he expanded Lefevre's arguments. (SOURCE: Christopher L.C.E. Witcombe, "The Chapel of the Courtesan and the Quarrel of the Magdalens" in: The Art Bulletin, 2002). -- The work was firs … [Click Below for Full Description]

As the cataloguer at the Brigham Young University Library notes, "The manuscript that Asulanus used was defective, lacking the end of Agamemnon and the beginning of the Choephori, so that in this edition they are treated as one play under the title Agamemnon."    The Aldine printer's device (version A2) is on title-page and verso of last leaf. The text of the plays is printed in the Aldine Greek face Gk4 (first used in the 1502 Sophocles) and Torresani's "to the reader" in Aldine italic face I1:79. There are spaces with guide letters for capitals but these were not accomplished by an illuminator.    Binding; Recent full red morocco, round spine with raised bands accented by gilt rules above and below each band, "Aldus, 1518" in gilt at base of spine. Aldine device in gilt on both covers. Marbled endpapers. Top edge gilt, other edges red.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A.

Marcantonio RAIMONDI (Sant'Andrea in Argine 1480 circa - Bologna 1534)
Bulino, 1518-1520 circa, monogrammato in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scudo con scala e fiore", rifilata al rame, numerose pieghe di carta restaurate, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione riproduce, con qualche variazione, un rilievo dell'arco di Costantino Sulla sinistra del foglio, Traiano è accolto da Roma, personificata, e incoronato d'alloro dalla Vittoria, mentre sulla destra i soldati romani combattono contro i Daci. Raimondi rinuncia ad ogni cornice, così da conferire maggiore ampiezza alla scena, mentre lo sfondo scuro dà risalto e rilievo alle figure, con un effetto scultoreo ottenuto anche grazie all'uso del bulino arrotondato, che accentua i volumi. L'artista ha aggiunto, invece, il muro sullo sfondo a destra, che ricorre anche nell'incisione di Marco Dente, della stessa epoca, raffigurante un altro rilievo di Costantino. L'incisione di Raimondi si data generalmente all'inizio degli anni venti del XVI secolo, perché stilisticamente affine alle scene di Amore e Psiche e all'Incensiere di Francesco I. Stegeimer e Shoemaker ritengono probabile che il disegno stesso dell'incisione sia opera del Raimondi, mentre non trova seguito l'ipotesi di Delaborde, per cui l'invenzione sia da attribuire a Giulio Romano. "Engraving, about 1518-1520, monogrammed lower right.

Domenico CAMPAGNOLA (Venezia 1500 - Padova 1564)
Bulino, 1518, datato in lastra e firmato DO. CAP. sulla pergamena a sinistra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, in perfetto stato di conservazione. San Luca, negli Atti degli Apostoli (2: 1-4), racconta che nel giorno della Pentecoste lo Spirito Santo discese sugli apostoli e Maria, mentre pregavano insieme, in forma di singole lingue di fuoco che si posarono su ognuno di loro. Subito furono pieni di Spirito Santo e cominciarono a parlare nelle lingue delle nazioni che avrebbero evangelizzato. L'iconografia tradizionale riporta sempre Maria al centro della composizione, e gli Apostoli ai due lati. Dunque, l'assenza della Vergine nell'opera del Campagnola è un fatto assolutamente inusuale. Anche la forma ovale è inusuale, ma viene utilizzata da Domenico anche per la Decapitazione di un Santo, al punto che Hind ipotizza che possano essere state incise sui due lati di una stessa lastra. La composizione, proprio per l'assenza di Maria, sembrerebbe più appropriata per un'Assunzione, e infatti la disposizione e le azioni delle figure sono comparabili proprio con l'Assunzione del Campagnola stesso, datata 1517, ma anche con la celebre pala d'altare di Tiziano, per il convento dei Frari (1516-1518). In effetti, il modello per questa incisione è stato individuato in un disegno conservato al Louvre, raffigurante uno studio per un'Assunzione della Vergine o un'Ascensione di Cristo. Il disegno è spesso attribuito a Tiziano e considerato come preparatorio per l'Assunzione del convento dei Frari (1516-18). Secondo Oberhuber, il disegno del L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marcantonio RAIMONDI (Sant'Andrea in Argine 1480 circa - Bologna 1534)
"Bulino, 1517-1518 ca, privo di data e firma. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata con filigrana "ancora nel cerchio", rifilata al rame, piccole abrasioni e restauri perfettamente eseguiti negli angoli inferiori, per il resto in ottimo sttao di consevazione. Salomone e la regina di Saba è una stampa inusuale in quanto si presenta completamente finita in tutte le sue parti incise e con grandi aree lasciate completamente vuote. Inoltre, presenta anche un problema di attribuzione. La maggior parte dei primi studiosi, a cominciare da Vasari, attribuisce l'incisione a uno dei seguaci di Marcantonio Raimondi. Mariette ha suggerito che Marcantonio ha solo iniziato l'incisione e che poi sia stata portata avanti da un artista minore. L'opinione è condivisa da Shoemaker, poiché molte delle figure sono lavorate in maniera imperfetta con una serie di brevi tratti paralleli che corrono perpendicolarmente ai contorni, e per via dei chiari errori nelle basi e nei capitelli delle colonne, nonché nel frontone sovrastante la porta del tempio, a destra. La prova incompleta di Marcantonio della ""Riconciliazione di Minerva e Cupido"" indica che la proposta di Mariette non è priva di fondamento. L'autore del modello per Salomone e Sheba non è argomento meno complesso. Mariette credeva che il modello di Marcantonio fosse la scena di Raffaello, dello stesso soggetto, nelle Logge Vaticane, e in effetti si potrebbe pensare che Raimondi si sia basato uno studio finale per l'affresco. Passavant ha anche riconosciuto la connessione dell'incisione con un affresco in una v … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hans Sebald BEHAM Nuremberg 1500 - Frankfurt 1550
Acquaforte su ferro, 1518/30 circa, monogrammata in lastra in alto al centro. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera mostra i soliti difetti dovuti all'ossidazione della lastra di ferro. L'episodio è descritto dalla letteratura antica nella carità romana; Cimone, in carcere in attesa di essere giustiziato, viene sfamato dalla figlia Pero che lo nutre con il latte del proprio seno. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. Cimon and Pero; a roundel with Cimon kneeling at left, suckled by Pero at right;the medallion flanked by two Tritons among acanthus leaves and against a cross-hatched background. Etching on iron, circa 1518/30, signed with monogram inside the medallion.

Agostino de MUSI detto "Agostino VENEZIANO" (Venezia 1490 ca. - Roma 1536/38)
Bulino, 1518 circa, privo di firma. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su sottile carta vergata coeva "testa di Re con corona in un cerchio", rifilata alla linea marginale, piccole ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il foglio appartiene a un gruppo di incisioni delle stesse dimensioni raffiguranti giovani donne accanto a vasi antichi. I corpi, sommariamente coperti, sono di grande bellezza ed eleganza. Secondo il Bartsch questi soggetti derivano da Raffaello, mentre sia il Passavant che recentemente Oberhuber sostengono la derivazione da Giulio Romano o da Luca Penni. Timbro di collezione al verso della collezione di Luciana Simonetti (Lugt 3616). A standing female nude, touching a tall vase with her left hand, in front of a low wall with a landscape behind. Engraving, 1518 circa, without signature. Magnificent work rich in shades, printed on thin contemporary laid paper with "King's head with crown in a circle", trimmed to marginal line, light oxidations, otherwside in very good condition. This sheet belongs to a group of engravings depicting young women with vases. The bodies, which are not very much cloche, are extremely beautiful and elegant. According to Bartsch, these subjects derive from Raffaello, while both Passavant and Oberhuber said they are after Giulio Romano or Luca Penni. The attribution to Agostino is by Bartsch. A related drawing in reverse is in the Louvre, inv.3585 recto. Collection's mark on verso, by Luciana Simonetti (Lugt 3616).

TJASSENS, Johan.
First edition of rare and important work on regulations for maritime trade and the navy. The first part of the work deals with the hierarchy in the Board of Admiralty, naval and mercantile ships, personnel functions, and equipment of ships with arms, food, and personnel. The second part deals with the individual chartered companies, the VOC, WIC, and the whaling companies. It contains information on the East Indies, Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, New York, and the whaling areas in Northern Europe. The contents of the chapters is outlined on a twenty-two page long table at the beginning of the work. Following Tjassens' these two parts, there are about 42 publications issued over the years by the Dutch government concerning these topics. "The chapters XIV-XXX of this valuable book contain the history of the West-India-Company, with reprints of the original documents (Octroyen, pp. 222-258). This first edition is scarce" (Muller).Paste-downs never pasted down; occasional minor waterstains in lower outer corner, otherwise in very good condition.Alden & Landis 652/198; Kress 861; Muller, America 1518; Rodrigues, Historiografia e Bibliografia do Dominio Holandes no Brasil, p. 8 and no. 111; Sabin 95872..

Aeschylus.
[colophon: Venetiis: In aedibvs Aldi et Andreae soceri, 1518]. 8vo (15.8 cm, 6.25"). 113, [1] ff. Editio princeps of Aeschylus, edited by Franciscus Asulanus and printed at the Aldine press. As the cataloguer at the Brigham Young University Library notes, "The manuscript that Asulanus used was defective, lacking the end of Agamemnon and the beginning of the Choephori, so that in this edition they are treated as one play under the title Agamemnon." The Aldine printer's device (version A2) is on title-page and verso of last leaf. The text of the plays is printed in the Aldine Greek face Gk4 (first used in the 1502 Sophocles) and Torresani's "to the reader" in Aldine italic face I1:79. There are spaces with guide letters for capitals but these were not accomplished by an illuminator. Binding; Recent full red morocco, round spine with raised bands accented by gilt rules above and below each band, "Aldus, 1518" in gilt at base of spine. Aldine device in gilt on both covers. Marbled endpapers. Top edge gilt, other edges red. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear. Renouard, Alde, p. 85, no. 9; UCLA, Aldine Press: Catalogue of the Ahmanson-Murphy Collection (2001), 164; Kallendorf & Wells, Aldine Press Books, 157; EDIT16 CNCE 328; Index Aurel. 100.913; Adams A262. Binding as above. Light waterstaining to foremargins, perhaps more than occasional but not throughout; in fact, a clean and handsome copy.
