MORE (Thomas) ou MORUS
1518. Ensemble de deux ouvrages reliés en un volume in-4 (203x152 mm), vélin rigide de l'époque, dos lisse titré à la plume. Quatrième édition de 'l'Utopie' de Thomas More, la dernière parue du vivant de l'auteur et corrigée par ses soins. "La perfection du texte, le souci apporté aussi bien au contenu qu'à la présentation graphique et esthétique faite par Hans Holbein font de cette édition de l'Utopie l'un des plus beaux documents et des plus hauts monuments de la littérature et de la pensée moderne" ('5e centenaire de la naissance de Thomas More. L'Utopie', Catalogue de l'exposition bibliographique au Centre Culturel Portugais, Paris, Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian, 1977, n°4). La deuxième partie de l'ouvrage contient les 'Épigrammes' en seconde édition. L'illustration, entièrement gravée sur bois, se compose d'un bel encadrement d'Hans Holbein sur le titre, répété en tête de la préface, d'une carte à pleine page de l'île d'Utopie gravée par Ambrosius Holbein, d'une vignette à mi-page du même artiste représentant John Clement, Raphael Hythloday, Thomas More et Peter Gillis au début du texte, de grandes lettrines historiées par Urs Graf, Hans et Ambrosius Holbein, d'un second encadrement sur le titre intermédiaire des Épigrammes et de deux marques typographiques de Froben. On trouve aussi, en regard de la carte d'Utopie, une savoureuse représentation de l'alphabet utopien conçu par Pieter Gillis. La troisième partie de l'édition, contenant une réimpression des Épigrammes d'Érasme, n'a pas été reliée dans cet exemplaire. On a relié à la suite, en revanche, un intéressant rec … [Click Below for Full Description]

Attraente solida legatura 700.sca in p. marocchino granata a grana larga con bordura a filetti oro sui piatti, dorso a nervi con tit. e ricchi fregi oro, tagli dor., dentelle int. (Come avverte Quaritch al n. 36513 del cat. 1888, ''the date which is printed in small Arabic numerals, in the margin, was evidently added after the publication of the book'' ). Titolo racchiuso in bordura silogr. ornamentale su fondo nero, che nella parte inferiore raffigurauna caccia al cinghiale; Numerose belle iniziali alte sei righe figurate o ornate su fondo nero; Precedono epigrammi latini di Pietro Gravina, Tamira e M.A. Casanova in lode dell'autore, che dedica l'opera al cardinale Pompeo Colonna. Prima edizione di quest'opera, ''una congerie di aneddoti, riuniti in capitoli per argomenti (De avaritia, De amore, De amicitia, De adulterio, De aulicorum officiis, etc.) in ordine prossimo a quello alfabetico..raccolti come exempla morali..Le fonti sono le più svariate; non mancano gli scrittori cristiani, ma predominano i classici latini e fra questi Cicerone, Seneca, Marziale, Plinio..'' (DBIt., vol. 14, p. 720-1). Per la sua caratteristica di agevole repertorio l'opera ebbe notevole successo, ma ''le edizioni posteriori che apparvero sotto il titolo di Speculum Mundi sono più ristrette'' (Ascarelli). Il Brusoni, nato a Contursi in provincia di Salerno verso la fine del XV sec., fu dotto umanista, filosofo, teologo e giureconsulto.

Champier, Symphorien.
Venundatur ab Iodoco Badio [Ascensio]. Florilegium of ancient and medieval thought on medicine, hygiene, diet, and general health, compiled by a prominent Lyonnese physician (1471-1539). Following that Rosa Gallica is an additional treatise on procedures for doctors, entitled Margarita in tribute to the author's wife, Marguerite Terrail. This is the 1518 reimpression of the 1514 first edition, both Renouard and Vicaire saying with certainty that it faithfully reproduces that original. Its title-page bears an attractive woodcut of the author holding an oversized rose and pointing to a book, while Marguerite (with a daisy in hand) sits nearby in an enclosed garden with a book of her own. Binding: 19th-century divinity-style calf, spine with raised bands, blind tooling, and gilt lettering; covers framed and panelled in blind fillets, each cover => preserving an on-laid original 16th-century Flemish stamped-panel stamp at center. The front cover panel shows St. Roche (patron saint of plague victims) in pilgrim guise, displaying a plague sore on his thigh to an angel on his right, with a dog on his left; the scene bears the legend "St. Roche libera nos a p[este]." The back panel is presents two columns of facing animals (dogs, geese, wyverns, and monkeys) with the surrounding legend, "deus dedit / deus abstulit, [signed] pe X c / sit nomen / domini benedictum." Goldschmidt tentatively sources the St. Roche panel in Cologne, and more confidently attributes the animal panel to Pieter de Keysere (Petrus Caesaris), active in Ghent ca. 1511-59. All edges gilt.

Musper). - The title woodcut shows an angel bearing the insignia of both these awards; the final woodcut shows Mennel's arms. - A clean and wide-margined copy. Rare; last at a German auction in 1964.

quadruplici linguarum genere eleganter congestum. (Colophon al f. CCCXr:) Impressum vero Orthonae Maris, summa cum diligentia per Hieronymum Suncinum, Anno M.D.XVIII, quintodecimo kalendas martias (Ortona a Mare, Girolamo Soncino, 1518). in-folio, ff. CCCXI, (1). Leg. 800.sca mezza pelle e angoli. Impresso in carattere tondo, testo con vari passaggi in ebraico; numerose belle grandi iniziali su fondo nero ornate con girari intrecciati; illustrato da 13 splendide larghe bordure, silografate su altrettante pagine, formate ognuna da 4 legni, che raffigurano, su fondo nero, vasi, fogliame, maschere, grotteschi, pesci mostruosi. E' il primo libro stampato ad Ortona a Mare, ad opera del grande tipografo israelita Girolamo (Gerschom) Soncino, durante la sua forzata attività di tipografo ambulante per fuggire le persecuzioni papali. Il volume, oltre che per le splendide bordure, è degno di nota per il carattere ebraico utilizzato, e per la delicatezza dell'argomento, al limite della cabala; include tra l'altro una difesa di Reuchlin, sotto forma di dialogo tra l'autore, l'inquisitore Jacob Hochstraten e Capnio (Reuchlin). Il "De arte cabalistica", dedicato a Leone X nel 1517, fu uno dei grandi testi della letteratura cabalistica, celebre opera dell'umanista tedesco (1455-1522); aspramente criticato, contribuì alla persecuzione che costellò la vita del Reuchlin. Il Galatino, teologo francescano (n. a Galatina nel 1460), si dedicò allo studio della lingua greca, caldaica ed etiopica, e fu in relazione con Leone X, Paolo III, Massimiliano I, Carlo V; "non è immune da idee cabalistiche … [Click Below for Full Description]

[ Kauffmann, J ] ? - PHARMACY
[ Manheim, PA ] ?: not published, 1815 - 1850. Unique.. Original leather backed notebooks.. Water stained throughout; bindings broken.. 8vo. An invaluable compilation of original formulas for medical cures and household use. It is divided between two notebooks that are roughly chronological. They are from the estate of a John Kaufman who was a physician practicing in Manheim Pennsylvania and of his father who practiced in Mansfield, OH. The notebooks also have a good deal of material that has been laid in by the previous owners. Among the items an unlocated dental pamphlet issued in Mansfield by L W Nevius entitled First and Second Dentition; a PA German handbill from the 1820s (one loc. known at Penn State) entitled Universal Balsam de Malta; and an unlocated 4 page advertising pamphlet (with some occ. losses to printed surface) issued by J R Johnston in Mansfield for his drugs, chemicals and 'fancy articles'. Each volume has its own extensive index. There is a total of appx. 300 pp. of notes. One volume is composed of laid paper, the other is milled paper (no watermarks). Most of the entries are in English with a preliminary section in the second volume in German that appears, based on the error free entries, to be a fair copy from an earlier notebook (father to son ?). This takes up at most appx. 30 pp.. In addition most of the entries bear legends identifying their origin, e.g., 'This receipt from a pedler [sic] who informed me it was effectual.' Attributions are to individual men and to several women (a quick check of OCLC reveals that none of those mentioned publish … [Click Below for Full Description]

Primi tre volumi della prima edizione aldina di Livio (l'epitome di Floro e le aggiunte di Polibio uscirono nel 1521, il quinto vol. nel 1533). È impresa ardua reperire i 5 volumi insieme, ed in legatura omogenea. I tre volumi riportano la dedica ad Andrea Navagero, G.B. Ramusio e G.B. della Torre; Nella prefazione ai lettori della prima parte, Gianfrancesco d'Asola si lamenta delle contraffazioni che alcune officine poco scrupolose avevano stampato, con chiare allusioni ai Giunta ed a Froben; e vi annuncia l'importantissimo Indice che seguiva, contenente i nomi dei re, dittatori, consoli, pretori e altri personaggi; la compilazione era stata intrapresa da Giovanni Malatesta, mantovano e monaco Cassinense. Cataldi Palau p. 130: ''L'indice figura in ognuno dei volumi di Livio. Costituisce quasi una parte a sé, come sembra indicare la marca di stampa che vi è premessa, diversa da quella che si trova all'inizio ed è ripetuta alla fine del testo''.

Champier, Symphorien.
Venundatur ab Iodoco Badio [Ascensio]. Florilegium of ancient and medieval thought on medicine, hygiene, diet, and general health, compiled by a prominent Lyonnese physician (1471-1539). Following that Rosa Gallica is an additional treatise on procedures for doctors, entitled Margarita in tribute to the author's wife, Marguerite Terrail. This is the 1518 reimpression of the 1514 first edition, both Renouard and Vicaire saying with certainty that it faithfully reproduces that original. Its title-page bears an attractive woodcut of the author holding an oversized rose and pointing to a book, while Marguerite (with a daisy in hand) sits nearby in an enclosed garden with a book of her own. Binding: 19th-century divinity-style calf, spine with raised bands, blind tooling, and gilt lettering; covers framed and panelled in blind fillets, each cover => preserving an on-laid original 16th-century Flemish stamped-panel stamp at center. The front cover panel shows St. Roche (patron saint of plague victims) in pilgrim guise, displaying a plague sore on his thigh to an angel on his right, with a dog on his left; the scene bears the legend "St. Roche libera nos a p[este]." The back panel is presents two columns of facing animals (dogs, geese, wyverns, and monkeys) with the surrounding legend, "deus dedit / deus abstulit, [signed] pe X c / sit nomen / domini benedictum." Goldschmidt tentatively sources the St. Roche panel in Cologne, and more confidently attributes the animal panel to Pieter de Keysere (Petrus Caesaris), active in Ghent ca. 1511-59. All edges gilt.

MELA, Pomponius (ca. 50 A.D.). -
Venezia, Aldo Manuzio, 1518. In - 8 picc. Legatura coeva in pergamena rigida; piccole mancanze al dorso. Ancora aldina al principio ed in fine. 233, (3) ff.; internamente fresco esemplare. Prima ed unica edizione aldina di questa raccolta di antichi testi di geografia e cosmografia. Il De situ orbis di Mela, la più antica opera latina di geografia, e il Polyhistor di Solino, con notizie strane e curiose su vari paesi del mondo, erano già stati pubblicati in precedenza, ma le altre quattro opere appaiono qui per la prima volta. Particolarmente interessante è il De regionibus urbis Romae di Publius Victor, una specie di guida della città sotto forma di dettagliato elenco dei principali edifici, monumenti e vie dell'antica Roma. Olschki, Choix, 1335. Renouard 83 / 6. Rossetti G - 231. The only Aldine edition of this collection of six ancient geographical texts. It includes Mela's De situ orbis, "the first extant geographical work in Latin and the only Roman treatise of the classical period devoted exclusively to that subject." (DSB XI, 74 - 76), and the first edition of Victor's work on the topography of ancient Rome, valuable for the identification of Roman ruins. Aldine device on title and end. Contemp. vellum, slightly worn, top of upper joint cracked, but internally a good and fresh copy.

PSALTER
[Johann Soter for Johann Potken], 1518. Small fol., 144 leaves, a-y6, ç6, &6. Roman, Hebrew, Greek and Ethiopic letters; title within elaborate border with interlacing floral decoration; occasional dust-soiling and marginal foxing, couple of tiny wormholes at foot and, in the first gathering, also to outer margin, old marginal repair to first five leaves, light dampstain at foot of final gathering. A good copy in late seventeenth-century English calf with gilt border; rebacked and restored, a little scuffed; on title, shelfmark and ink stamp of the Royal Society ‘ex dono’ of Henry Howard (1628-1684). The second book to be printed in liturgical Ethiopic (Ge’ez) and the first polyglot psalter including that language. The editor, Johann Potken (c.1470-c.1525), was also responsible for the previous and earliest appearance of Ge’ez in print with his Alphabetum seu potius Syllabarium chaldaearum, published in Rome with Marcellus Silber in 1513. A Hebraist and clergyman from Cologne, Potken was at the time in the Papal city to serve Leo X. There, he got in touch with the Ethiopic community flourishing around the Church of St Peter of the Abyssinians, learnt Ge’ez from the pilgrim monk Thomas Walda Samuel and cut (or commissioned) an Ethiopic type for Silber, which he later brought back to Cologne and used for this Psalter. Curiously, Potken, the pioneer of Ethiopic printing, incorrectly called this language ‘Chaldea’, an ambiguous term which was commonly used in relation to Aramaic. An earlier polyglot Psalter featuring Arabic and Aramaic in addition to the Hebrew, Greek and Latin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Agostino de MUSI detto "Agostino VENEZIANO"
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 sconosciuto al Lugt. Bibliografia: Bartsch, XIV, p.353, 474; Passavant, p. 594, 90; Oberuhuber, Roma e lo stile classico di Raffaello, p. 196, 130. Dimensioni 140x210. 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. Collection stamp on verso, not listed by Lugt.
