KENTMANN, Johannes.
Adams, G-522/[2]; Durling 2656; Osler 646/[2]; Sinkankas 2366/2; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 82/[8]; Ward 906/[2] & 1251; Wellcome 2804/[2]. First and only edition of a treatise on stones found in the human body, including the first known detailed account of gallstones, well-illustrated with 11 woodcuts showing more than 30 objects. In addition to stones, it includes growths and indigestible objects swallowed, divided into twelve chapters according to the part of the body in which they were found. Johannes Kentmann (1518-1574), as both mineralogist and city physician of Dresden and Torgau, was ideally suited to discuss this subject. Conrad Gessner included Kentmann's treatise in his compilation, De Omni Rerum Fossilium Genere, but it is separately signed and foliated for separate publication as well.A very good copy with generous margins. The text of slightly more than one page struck through in ink. Fascinating doctor/mineralogist's view of "stones" found in human bodies.

MELA, Pomponius Et Al
Colophon on G2r: [Venice: In Aedibus Aldi, Et Andreae Soceri, October 1518]., 1518. 8vo. ff. 233, [3]. complete with the 2 blanks, B8 & G3. Aldine woodcut device on title & verso of last leaf. 19th century paneled calf. armorial bookplate of Henry Richard Vassall Fox, Third Baron Holland [1773-1840]. First Aldine Edition of this collection of ancient geographical texts. Mela’s was "the first extant geographical work in Latin and the only Roman treatise of the classical period devoted exclusively to that subject." (DSB) His descriptive survey of the habitable world (Europe, Africa, and Asia) includes remarks on manners and customs, details on spectacular phenomena, and speculation on the causes of tides. "Despite his general inferiority as a geographer, Pomponius knew more than Strabo about the positions of Britain, Ireland, and the coasts of Gaul and north Germany; he was also the first to mention the Orkney Islands. Pomponius exerted a considerable influence on early medieval authors, both on his own account, and because Pliny used and cited his work." (Ibid.) Solinus’s description of the classical world was based on Pliny’s Natural History and Mela’s geography. The Itinerarium compiled by Antoninus provides a brief survey of the whole of the Roman Empire. Vibius Sequester lists the names of the principal rivers, mountains, etc. known to the Romans. Victor’s work on the topography of ancient Rome, which appears here for the first time, is an important source for the identification of Roman ruins. The last text is Dionysius Afer’s treatise on cosmography. Renouard I 198.9. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marcantonio RAIMONDI
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. Magnificent proof, rich in shades, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "shield with scale and flower", trimmed to copper, numerous folds of paper restored, otherwise in excellent condition.

More, Sir Thomas.
1518. 4to. 162 pp., fol. 163-164, (2) pp. (a-s4 t6 u6, without the 'Epigrammata' announced on the title). With woodcut title border and a border in the text by Hans Holbein the younger, 2 woodcuts in the text (1 full-page) by Ambrosius Holbein, and 6 woodcut initials; printer's device on final page. Modern giltstamped full calf. Rare third, revised edition (the first one printed in Basel) of the famous "ideal state" novel that gave its name to a whole literary genre. Edited by Erasmus of Rotterdam, whom More had sent the manuscript in 1516. The second part, about the ideal constitution for a state, was written first, while More was an envoy in Flanders in 1515, while part one was written only in 1516, after his return to England. The two woodcuts by Ambrosius Holbein, Hans's elder brother, include the famous bird's-eye view of the island of Utopia (a full-page illustration) and the charming scene showing the story's fictional traveller, Raphael Hythlodaeus, in discussion with More himself and his Antwerpian friend Peter Gilles (Aegidius), with More's young assistant John Clement (later to become a Royal Physician and More's son-in-law) approaching them. Like 'Gulliver's Travels', Utopia was written "as a tract for the times, to rub in the lesson of Erasmus; it inveighs against the new statesmanship of all-powerful autocracy and the new economics [...], just as it pleads for religious tolerance and universal education [...] More had all Swift's gift for utterly convincing romance: the beginning, when Rafael Hythlodaye recounts his voyages, has a vividness which draws the rea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Essling 1431 - 1518 Platina Lives of the Popes Paul II Post Incunabula PAGAN Rome Maffei Latin “Peter Barbo (Paul II) could feign good nature, when occasion served, but he was so mean-spirited that when could not obtain what he aimed at by praying, entreating, and requesting, he would join tears to make them sooner believed. Therefore, Pope Pius sued to call him ‘the godly Mary.’ – Platina, Lives. Originally printed in 1479, Bartolomeo Sacchi’s Lives of the Popes, was one of the first works published on the history of the popes of the Catholic Church. However, Sacchi (more commonly called Platina) used the opportunity to offer extensive discussion on the history of Rome and the pagan life that was prevalent throughout Roman history, as well as make poignant attacks on Pope Paul II. It quickly became the standard reference work on papal history. This 1518 post-incunable printing includes a number of Platina titles including Lives, Contra Amores, and Falso et vero bono as well as a text by Raffaelo Maffei, De vita quatuor Maximi Pontifici (Life of the Four Greatest Popes) Item number: #127 Price: $2500 SACCHI, Bartolomeo (Platina); MAFFEI, Raffaelo Jn hoc volumine hec continentur Platyne De vitis maxi. ponti. historia periocunda Diligenter recognita: [&] nunc tantum integre impressa.

VAERNEWIJCK, Marcus van.
, . . Belg. Typ. 9272; Bibl. Belg. II, p. 410 (V 64) (6 copies); Netherlandish books 29948 (8 copies). Second edition of a popular history of the Low Countries by Marcus van Vaernewijck (1518-1569), a poet and historian descended from an old noble family from Ghent, and a member of the chamber of rhetoric "Maria 't Eeren". He was twice elected alderman of the city of Ghent. His present book covers the history of the Low Countries in antiquity and the Middle Ages in a lively style, including both real and imaginary people and exploits. It reports events to 1506. Of special importance is the part on Ghent, its monuments and political organisation, the author being particularly well informed on this subject. Ulco Poost's copy, with his bookplate on the paste-down, and with an earlier library stamp on a free endleaf. Slightly browned throughout and with small holes in about 5 leaves, but otherwise in good condition, with only a minor stain in the foot margin of 4 leaves. Binding somewhat dirty and with a couple small scuffs on the back board, but still good. A popular history of the Low Countries with woodcut illustrations.

Savonarola, Girolamo.
per Francisum de Bindonis, 1518. Savonarola's detailed instructions for confessors are here newly edited by the philologist Lucas Olchinensis Panaetius (fl. 1518) and dedicated to Antonio Contarini (d. 1524), a patriarch of Venice. First published coincident with Savonarola's death, this manual was reprinted at least 42 times in the next 200 years and was so popular that the Pope in 1581 contributed a preface! Specifically addressed to young priests, it reviews various sins, describes the qualities of a good confessor, guides the reader through interrogation techniques, and assigns appropriate penances, thereby bearing => singular, significant witness to Savonarola's effective work as a conventional priest, not a radical public reformer loudly auguring the Apocalypse. The Rudimentary References of Elias de Ferrariis (d. 1348), another tool for novice priests, is appended starting on p. 45. A famous woodcut of Savonarola seated to the left of a desk in his cell, writing, beneath a crucifix and a window without bars, introduces an edition of his text that is neatly printed in Gothic type with two large, ten-line criblé woodcut initials beginning the major sections. Marks of readership: Sparse underlining, a couple annotations, and manicules, all in early ink.

RÖSSLIN, Eucharius.
[Cologne: Arnt von Aich, 1518?]. An exceptionally fine copy, in an untouched contemporary binding, of one of three editions of this landmark work published at about the same time, this probably being the third (see below). This is the earliest printed textbook for midwives and one of the first printed books devoted to obstetrics, including engravings attributed to the Frankfurt artist Martin Kaldenbach, a pupil of Albrecht Dürer. Although copies of these editions occasionally appear on the market, they are almost always in poor condition, and usually rebound, as a result of extensive use over the centuries. "The most important items in my collection of rare obstetrical books are the 1513 editions of the famous obstetrical textbook, Der Swangern Frauwen und Hebammen Roszgarten by Eucharius Roesslin, a physician from Worms. All three were published in the same year but each was set up and printed differently (Nos. 1, 2, 3). One is dated; the other two are not. There is, of course, no way of knowing which of these three was the real first edition" (Hellman). All three editions are extremely rare. "Roesslin's obstetrical treatise, first published in German in 1513 under the title Der swangern Frawen und hebammen roszgarten, had an enormous impact on contemporary obstetrical practice and remained influential for two hundred years, going through over one hundred editions before the close of the eighteenth century. The work contained little original material, being primarily a survey of Greek and Roman obstetrical literature, but it was the first to deal with obstetrics as a separ … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Veuve Jehan Trepperel, [1518 ou 1519]. ____ Seul exemplaire connu de cette édition. Elle est illustrée de plus de 100 gravures sur bois. Livre populaire, livre d'usage, tous les éditions de cet ouvrage sont très rares. Très curieux pour son texte et son illustration, c'est une sorte d'encyclopédie des connaissances météorologiques, astrologiques, agricoles, médicales et morales. C'est le premier almanach qui ait été imprimé en France. "On s'explique facilement la faveur d'un ouvrage qui s'adressait aux masses populaires et rurales et leur donnait des conseils de toutes sortes sur la médecine et l'hygiène, l'agriculture, la manière de se comporter en ce monde en vue d'arriver sainement dans l'autre, en même temps qu'il donnait aux gens illettrés des notions sur l'astronomie et la division du temps. Les démonstrations étaient renforcées par des images explicatives pour ceux qui ne savaient pas lire." (M. Monceaux). "Ces livres sont en fait des compilations à usage pratique et moral destinées à un public laïc. Ils s'inspirent d'ouvrages médiévaux tels que "Le Livre des propriétés des choses" de Barthélémy l'Anglais, les "Grandes Danses Macabres", les traités préparant les âmes au Jugement Dernier. Ils ont recours à l'astrologie, très présente aux XVe et XVIe siècles. Les signes du zodiaque, les planches anatomiques, les danses macabres ou représentations des enfers, les représentations des activités agricoles ou artisanales pour chaque mois de l'année, doivent enrichir le texte pour guider l'homme vers son salut."
