         Ein kurtze Schirmred der Kunst Astrologie, wider etliche unverstandene Vernichter, auch etliche Antwurt uff die Reden und Fragen Martini Luthers Augustiners, so er in seinen zehen Gebote[n] unformlich wider dise Ku[n]st getho[n] hat.

      (Strasbourg, Johann Grüninger, 1520). - 4to. (20) pp. (final blank). With woodcut title border. 18th century marbled wrappers. Extremely rare first and only edition: a defence of astrology written against the criticisms of Martin Luther, quoting Avicenna and other Arabic scholars. "In 1520 Luther had published a comment to the decalogue, including among the violators of the first commandment also magicians, necromancers, and astrologers. Luther's hostility toward astrology was great; moreover, this anti-astronomical polemic on a religious basis was widespread enough as was the traditional, contrary attempt to show [.] the religious legitimacy of astrology. But, coming from a heretic such as Luther, this new attack on astrology could very easily be turned around. Laurent Fries, a physician and astrologer of Colmar, intervened in defense of the science of the stars with a short work (Ein kurtze Schirmred der Kunst Astrologie . [A Brief Defense of the Art of Astrology], J. Grüninger, Strasbourg, 1520) written in the form of a dialogue between Fries himself and Luther. In this work Fries tried to show that astrology was, from a Christian point of view, perfectly orthodox and not therefore, as Luther had maintained, a pagan science" (cf. C. Ginzburg, Il nicodemismo [Turin, 1970], p. 30). Among the witnesses called by Fries in defense of astrology are not only the gospels and the great thinkers of antiquity, but also several of the great Muslim philosophers and physicians, including Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi (Rhazes) and 'Ali ibn al-'Abbas al-Majusi (Haly Abbas). - Occasional insignificant browning; some smudging of printer's ink on second and third folio; contemporary correction and marginal note in ink on fol. A2v. Apparently removed from an old sammelband, numbered "37" at the head of the title by an early hand. Not a single copy is known in the trade; only one is listed via VD16 (in the Bavarian State Library in Munich; a variant imprint of the title is in Göttingen). VD 16, F 2861. USTC 644398. Not in Pegg, Hohenemser, Knaacke, Kuczynski etc. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         1520 Guillaume Pepin Speculum Catholic Virgin Mary Marian Sermons Rosary

      Impressum Parrhisiis : cum privilegio pro Johanne Parui, 1520 die vero 10 mensis Martij. - 1520 Guillaume Pepin Speculum Catholic Virgin Mary Marian Sermons Rosary Guillaume Pepin was a late 15th-century Dominican friar and preacher. He gained his fame in the early 1500s from his published sermons, in which many of the public sermons Pepin attacked royalty and Francis I. Pepin himself said, “Is royalty a holy thing? Who made it? The Devil, the people, and God: God, because nothing happens with his will; the devil, because he has breathed ambition and pride; the people because they have given themselves over to servitude.” (Pepin, Sermones de Destrucitone, 1518; from Farge) Pepin was instrumental in spreading Marian piety and played a critical role in the development in the modern use of Rosary in Catholic traditions. This work, ‘Speculum Aureum Super,’ was first published in 1510 and saw extensive reprints through the mid-17th-century. It is a collection of seven ‘penitential psalms’ or lectures on evangelism and devotional teaching.

First edition. - 1520 1st ed Epistles of St Ignatius of Antioch + Catholic Church Father Polycarp Ignatius of Antioch was a first-century early-Christian writer and bishop. While on his way to Rome, Ignatius wrote a series of letters, similar in nature to the Biblical Epistles of Saint Paul. These letters, many of which have sense been attributed to other authors, are a prime example of early church theology and address important topics such as the role and responsibility of church leaders, study of the church, and holy sacraments.

The letters, or epistles, included in this 1520 printing are written to: • Trallians • Magnesians • Tarsians, or Tarshishians • Philippians • Philadelphians • Smyrnaeans o The letter which contains the earliest recorded evidence of the term “catholic church” • Polycarp of Smyrna • Antiochians • Hero, Deacon of Antioch • Ephesians • Romans According to Heckethorn, Adam Petri, the printer, was a devout Catholic, who presented his published works to Catholic monasteries in Basel.

         1520 1ed Saxonia Krantz Holy Roman Empire Gypsy Charlemagne Saxony Saxons FOLIO

      Cologne: [Johann Soter, Maio], 1520. First edition. - 1520 1ed Saxonia Krantz Holy Roman Empire Gypsy Charlemagne Saxony Saxons FOLIO Albert Krantz was a 15th-century German historian whose principal work was on the history of Saxony, entitled ‘Saxonia.’ With the help of fellow poet-Laureate Jakob Canter, Krantz wrote of the events, rulers, and cultures of Saxony. In 1520, when Krantz first published ‘Saxonia,’ Saxony covered the extent of the Hanseatic League, and Krants treaded on myth, rather than purely providing historical accuracies. (Tilg, Knight). Krantz also spoke profusely about Gypsies and Gypsy history. He referred to them as the scum of the nation who ‘lived like dogs’ without religion, and were a community of drifters, thieves, and beggars. (Willems). He also covers the rule of Duke Magnus and an extensive section on the reign of Charlemagne during the Holy Roman Empire. A beautifully bound 1520 first edition covering the complete history of Saxony and the Holy Roman Empire, complete with an extensive index. Item number: #2026 Price: $1750 KRANTZ, Albert Saxonia.

         De causa Boemica. Paulus constantius. Vulgo refragari quosdam celeberrimi Constantiensis Concilii sententiae, qua Hussitae damnati sunt, constat. (.). .

      - [Hagenau, Thomas Anshelm, 1520]. In-4 (197 x 148mm), plein vélin rigide, dos titré à la plume (rel. moderne) 95 (/97) f., titre orné d'un bel encadrement sur bois gravé par Urs Graf, lettrine historié. Edition princeps, rarissime, de l’ouvrage principal de Jan Hus, réédité la même année sous le titre ‘De ecclesia’, qui renferme l’essentiel de la doctrine du réformateur de Bohème. Né de parents pauvres en 1373, devenu recteur de l'Université de Prague et confesseur de la reine, Jan Hus découvrit les doctrines du réformateur anglais John Wyclif auxquelles il adhéra avec enthousiasme, sur la prédestination, le rejet de l'autorité du pape, attaquant les vices du clergé, les excommunications, les indulgences, le culte de la Vierge et des saints et la communion. Déféré pour cet ouvrage au Saint-Siège, il fut excommunié par le pape Alexandre V, en appela au concile de Constance mais celui-ci le déclara hérétique. Ayant refusé de se rétracter, Jan Hus fut brûlé vif à Constance en 1415. Sa mort souleva toute la Bohème et devint le signal d'une guerre sanglante. Luther découvrit un manuscrit de ce texte plus d’un siècle après sa rédaction. Il y reconnut ses propres doctrines et encouragea sa diffusion. "Nous sommes tous des Hussites sans le savoir" écrivit Luther dans sa préface à l’édition des lettres de Jan Hus (1537). L’éditeur du texte est Paul Phrygio ou Sidensticker, ou encore Costenzer (ici latinisé Paulus Constantinus), (1483 Sélestat - 1543 Tübingen). Théologien et précoce réformateur protestant alsacien, il devint vicaire à la cathédrale de Strasbourg puis recteur de l'université de Bâle. (Adams, H-1203. Benzing, ‘Bibliographie Haguenovienne’, n°64, p. 56. BM STC German, 1455-1600, p. 438. Martínez de Bujanda, ‘Index des livres interdits’, n°231. Panzer IX 179, 194.

      (Basel), Froben, o. J. (ca. 1520). - 2 Bll., 62 S., 3 Bll. Frühe Ausgabe dieses öfters aufgelegten Handbuchs über die Münzen, Maße und Gewichte des Altertums. - VD16 P 4394. - Leonardo Porzio (1460 - 1545) wollte mit vorliegendem Werk (erstmals um 1500 in Venedig erschienen) die Deutungshoheit über das römische Münz- und Messwesen erringen und stand damit in direkter Konkurrenz zu dem 1515 erschienen Werk "De asse" von Guillaume Bude. Der wissenschaftliche Streit zwischen diesen beiden beherrschte danach für einige Jahre die wissenschaftliche Diskussion. -"Porzio`s representation is in part rather speculative: he tried to reduce the classical measures to a natural basis, which for him meant the natural foot for lengths and siliquae (seed of cruciferous plants) for weights. in order to determine the lenghth of the Roman foot he used a measure that was conserved in Roman gardens, and arrived at the guess that the natural foot should be one-twelfth less than the foot of his time" (Iain Fenlon and Inga Mai Groote, Heinrich GlareanÄ`s Books.

      Alden & Landis 660/161 (1 copy); WorldCat (3 copies); cf. Borba de Moraes, p. 836; Sabin 90050; this ed. not in STCN. Extremely rare Dutch edition of an important and very popular eye-witness account of mid-16th-century Brazil, by Hans Staden (ca. 1520/25-ca. 1557 or ca. 1576), a Hessian artilleryman who served the Portuguese in Brazil in the years 1547-1548 and 1549-1555. During most of his second trip to Brazil he was held prisoner near Rio de Janeiro by the Tupinambá Indians. Already fluent in the Tupi language, he probably gained a more intimate knowledge of the Indians than any other writer of his day. The first part describes his voyages and his capture by the Indians, while the second part describes their culture and customs. Staden's sensational tales of the "savage, naked, very godless and cruel cannibals" of Brazil, published when Europeans knew almost nothing of the New World, immediately made the book a best-seller. While its biased view of the Brazilian "savages" was the progenitor of many widely accepted 16th-century European beliefs about the New World, it also contains a wealth of information from the direct observations of a participant observer familiar with the native language. It therefore forms one of the most important sources of both facts and misperceptions about indigenous Americans. We have located only three other copies of the present edition worldwide.With some water stains and an occasional minor brown spot, but still in good condition and only slightly trimmed.

         Untitled [Tabula Primae Europae]

      Strasbourg 1513-1520 - Black and white woodcut (approx. 39.5 x 58cm.q) Martin Waldseemuller's important and scarce Ptolemaic map of the British Isles (more frequently found in the reduced-size format by Lorenz Fries published from 1522). The map was first published in Waldseemuller's edition of ". Geographiae Opus Novissima ." (1513) in which, for the first time, the classical Ptolemaic series of maps were displayed with comparable "modern" maps. The woodblock map shows the typically Ptolemaic outline of the British Isles with an elongated south-west and an eastward slanting Scotland. Ireland also appears with an elongated south-west corner and is located too far north. Slight crease to top of centre fold. OVERALL A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE.

      Basel: Adam Petri, 1520. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Folio (299 x 200 mm). Large woodcut coat-of-arms of Freiburg on title and full-page woodcut illustration of patron saints of Freiburg on verso by Hans Holbein, (repeated on B1), woodcut folding plate of a genealogical tree, woodcut initials. 16th-century German blind-stamped pigskin over paste boards, initials "D.S.D." and date "1577" stamped on upper cover.

The woodcut of the Virgin enthroned is signed "HH" on the left side of the platform upon which she is seated. Chamberlain notes: "In composition the Solothurn Madonna bears close resemblance to a large woodcut; designed by Holbein, on the back of the title-page of the Statute Book or Town Laws of Freiburg-im-Breisgau . . . The similarity between the two designs is particularly close in the position and movement of the arms and hands of the Infant Christ. The woodcut, which is signed 'H.H.' on the edge of the step on the left, and dated 1519, is richly and grandly designed, the figures of the two saints having been conceived with great nobility, and it is possible that Holbein was so satisfied with its composition that he made use of it two years later when Gerster came to him for an altar-piece" (Chamberlain, Hans Holbein the Younger, 1913, p. 111). The original woodblock is preserved in the Augustinermuseum, Freiburg. Adams F-1004; BM/STC German p.319; Muther 1300; Stobbe II, p.306.

         Omnium gentium mores leges et ritus ex multis clarissimis rerum scriptoribus ... collectos: & in libros tris distinctos Aphricam, Asiam, Europam, optime lector lege

      Augsburg : Augustae Vindelicorum excusa in officina Sigismundi Grimm medici, ac Marci Wirsung, 1520. [Imprint from colophon]. First edition. Folio, later vellum, three raised bands to spine; added title page: Repertorium librorum trium Ioannis Boemi de omnium gentium ritibus. Item index rerum scitu digniorum in eosdem, set within a decorative woodcut border, an old paper repair to centre; ff. 6, lxxxi, lacking the terminal blank; ornamental woodcut initials; water stains to last few leaves. Rare first edition of a work that constitutes the first printed ethnographic compendium of the Renaissance. Its author, the humanist Johannes Boemus (or Böhm, 1485-1534), was canon of Ulm Cathedral. Although Boemus' work, which attempts to describe the manners and customs of peoples of Europe, Africa and Asia, is based to a large extent on accounts by writers of antiquity, his information on the Arab world and Asia relies heavily on the account of the Bolognese Ludovico di Varthema (Vertomannus) of his travels by land and sea to the Far East, first published in 1510. Varthema visited Egypt, Mecca, Yemen, Persia, India, Ceylon, Burma, Sumatra, the Moluccas, Borneo and Java. For a detailed discussion of Boemus' work, see Klaus A. Vogel. Cultural variety in a Renaissance perspective: Johannes Boemus on "The manners, laws and customs of all people", 1520, in: Shifting cultures: interaction and discourse in the expansion of Europe, edited by Henriette Bugge, Joan Pau Rubiés (Münster, 1995, pp. 17ff): Vogel (ibid.) writes: 'Johannes Boemus' book on "The manners, laws and customs of all people, collected from many illustrious authors, and divided into three books; Africa, Asia and Europe", written in Latin, and printed in July 1520 by Sigismund Grimm and Marcus Wirsung, [was] highly esteemed by his contemporaries and widely read all over Western Europe. Reprinted, expanded and translated into five vernacular languages, Boemus' work formed a compendium on cultural variety and provided a fundamental source for reflections on the origin, evolution and diversity of mankind in Early Modern Europe. From 1535, when the first known Latin reprint appeared in Lyon, to 1620, there were at least 47 editions, including translations into Italian, French, English, Spanish and German ... Margaret Hodgen, whose study on Early anthropology in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries still provides the only wide-ranging synthesis on the subject, takes Boemus' book as significant for the decisive step from "Classical heritage" and "Mediaeval prologue" towards "Early anthropology". For Hodgen this starts with the European expansion and the reception of its findings around 1500. According to Hodgen, "the time was early for this book", as it appeared just a few years after Christopher Columbus "dropped anchor in the Tagus River at the port of Lisbon on that fateful day of his return to the Old World" ... What made Boemus write his book between 1517 and 1520, and why did he write it the way he did? Modern historians have expressed puzzlement that Boemus, who was adept at condensing the most diverse sources from antiquity to the early 16th century, failed to make use of the latest literature of actual travels and discoveries. After all, a book on the manners of "all" people should start with a detailed account of those people who had been discovered most recently. But Boemus did not even mention Columbus, Vasco da Gama or Vespucci, and there is not a single allusion to the New World in the whole text. Does that mean that Boemus simply did not know about the Portuguese discoveries along [the] Africa[n coast] and the way around to India? Was America not yet discovered for Boemus? Does Boemus' book provide proof of a humanist disdain for modernity, of a "striking unawareness" of the New, and in the words of John Elliott's general thesis, of a "slowness to respond" to the discoveries?' Adams B2275; Durling 609; Sabin 6117. Although copies of later sixteenth century editions are not particularly scarce, the first edition of 1520 rarely appears in the market.

         Venere che si asciuga il piede dopo il bagno

      1520 - Bulino, 1520-30 circa, monogrammata AD (monogramma di Duerer), in basso a destra. Da un’incisione di Marcantonio Raimondi. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, assottigliamento della carta in corrispondenza degli angoli, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rispetto all’incisione dello stesso soggetto realizzata da Marcantonio Raimondi, che risulta in controparte, questa copia mostra sullo sfondo, attraverso una sorta di finestra, un paesaggio tipicamente nordico. Lo stile incisorio rimanda alla scuola del Raimondi. Si è pensato che il soggetto dell’incisione possa essere la settima scena, perduta, sulla parete nord della stufetta vaticana del cardinal Bibbiena, decorata da Raffaello e dalla sua cerchia con episodi della vita di Venere. Circa l’identificazione con la perduta scenetta del Bibbiena, cfr. Oberhuber, p. 335 e Mason, n. 69. Dell’incisione del Raimondi esistono varie repliche che ne attestano il vasto successo, tra cui quella di Altdorfer. La scena è di una raffinatezza delicata: Venere seduta, nuda, con un’espressione dolce e assorta, è chinata in avanti nell’atto di asciugarsi un piede con una veste. Accanto a lei, in piedi è Cupido alato, con il suo arco nella sinistra, e la mano destra tra i riccioli. Dalla finestra alle loro spalle, si scorge un paesaggio collinare. Il drappeggio sulla sinistra, con le sue pieghe, conferisce profondità spaziale alla scena. Engraving, about 1520-30, unsigned. Single state. A good proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to copperplate, restoration at upper right corner perfectly executed, otherwise in excellent condition. Copy in reverse after Marcantonio Raimondi, with a landscape setting in place of the room with a window. The buidings in the background are suggested by those in Dürer’s Hercules of about 1500, the stone bridge and stream with stones on the bank are copied from Dürer’s Virgin and Child with the Monkey of about 1498. It is thought that the subject of the engraving may be the seventh scene, lost, on the north wall of the Stufetta by Cardinal Bibbiena, decorated by Raphael and his circle with episodes from the life of Venus. About identification with the lost scene of Bibbiena, see. Oberhuber, p. 335 And Mason 335, n. 69. Raimondi’s engraving is available in several replicas that attest to the vast success, including that of Altdorfer. The scene is of a delicate refinement: Venus sitting, naked, with a sweet and thoughtful, is leaning forward in the act of wiping foot with a robe. Beside her, standing is winged Cupid with his bow in his left hand and the right hand between the curls. From the window behind them, you can see a hilly landscape. The draping on the left, with its folds, gives spatial depth to the scene. Barstch: XIV, p. 224; Delaborde, p. 161 n. 115; Hind, V, n. 44; Passavant, III, p. 281 n. 43; Raphael Invenit, p. 63 n.

         De laudibus urbis, Etruriae, et Italiae.

      (Bologna, in aedibus Hieronymi de Benedictis, 1520). - 4to. (40) SS. Papered marble spine. Editio princeps of the "Itinerarium" ("De Reditu Suo") of the 5th century Roman Gaul poet Rutilius. "On the reverse of the title page is a poem by the editor Giambattista Pio to Pope Leo X, ending on fol. 4v; text begins on 5r. A very rare edition, apparently the first" (cf. Schweiger). The poem in elegiac meter describes a coastal voyage from Rome to Gaul in 416. The solid literary quality of the work, and the flashes of light it throws across a momentous but dark epoch of history, combine to give it exceptional importance among the relics of late Roman literature. Rare, last copy auctioned in 1954.- A well-preserved copy. Edit 16, CNCE 47666. BM-STC Italian 594. Schweiger II.2, 859f. [Attributes: First Edition]

Hass (1450–1527) was a meistersinger and this publication is his song about "the universal and new custom/usage with which the people of the world are very burdened in these times" (or, more figuratively, "in which the people of the world are very involved in these times").    This is one of two editions of 1520 following the two editions of 1519, all printed by Johann Schönsperger and with rather different title-pages as to layout of the type, whether printing is black and red or just black, and whether the jester image has a border. In this copy the title-page is printed in black and red and has a borderless woodcut image of a jester seated on a tree stump playing a lute (six strings).

         Opere del divino poeta danthe con svoi comenti: recorrecti et con ogne diligentia novamente in littera cvrsiva impresse. [The Divine Comedy].

      Venice, Bernardino Stagnino, 1520. 4to. Contemporary full leather binding with blindtooled ornamentation to boards. Rebacked with five raised bands and blindstamped ornamentation. Hinges with wear but firm and strong. Leather ties to boards renewed. Three lines in contemporary hand written to front free end-paper. (Presumably) Previous owner's name crossed out to lower part of title-page. Title-page printed in red with black woodcut boarder and woodcut depicting St. Bernardine of Siena holding the sacred monogram of Jesus on a board. One full-page woodcut depicting Dante and Vergil. Numerous woodcut throughout in text. Small worm tract affecting lower margin on pp. 414-440, far from affecting text. An overall fine and clean copy. (13), 440 ff. Rare second Stagnino-edition with text edited by Pietro Bembo, profusely illustrated with woodcut illustrations throughout the text, of Dante's Comedy including the 15th century Cristoforo Landino commentaries, arguably still the most important and influential comments on Dante's seminal work. While the Aldine-style Dante-editions had flooded the literary market, the more austere and demanding academic circles still required their Dante with commentary. Bernardino Stagnino sought to satisfy this group of the reading public with three editions of the poem (1512, 1520 and 1536) incorporating Landino's commentary in all of them."Stagnino's one significant innovation was to print the "modern" Aldine text edited by Pietro Bembo together with the 15th-century Landino commentary. Inevitably, discrepancies between text and commentary became even more numerous than they had been in the earlier editions. Yet, the 15th-century vulgate of Dante's text clearly had been superseded by Aldus' edition of 1502. Beyond this innovation, Stagnino rested content to resurrect in 1512 the Landino text as corrected by Pietro da Figino during the 1490s (printed now for the sixth time since 1491). " (University of Notre Dame)"Stagnino belonged to the distinguished Giolito de' Ferrari da Trino (Piedmont) family of printers, a family worthy of being considered alongside the Manutius family, if not for the correctness of their texts, then certainly for their long history in Renaissance publishing and printing. Around 1483 he moved from Trino to Venice and established a press under the sign of San Bernardino, and remained active there until his death in 1538." (University of Notre Dame)Landino, tutor of Lorenzo de' Medici and a member of the Platonic Academy founded by Marsilio Ficino in Florence, still ranks among the most important Dante-commentators: "The significance of this prestigious commentary can hardly be overstated, both at the time of its first printing (1482) and through the fifteen subsequent reprints that were made before the end of the sixteenth century. It is without doubt the most celebrated and widely influential commentary on the Comedy to be printed in Renaissance Italy. It marks a pivotal moment in the Florentine cult of Dante [...]" (Gilson, Dante and Renaissance Florence). Essling 539 Sander 2325.

         Madonna con Bambino

      1520 - Bulino, 1520 circa, privo di firma e dati editoriali. Magnifica prova, nitida e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con filigrana "unicorno", rifilata al rame, sporadiche e lievissime fioriture, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Opera estremamente rara, sconosciuta ai repertori e non presente nelle principali collezioni pubbliche. Al British Museum abbiamo trovato una copia, recante il monogramma NWM, dell’incisore tedesco Nikolaus Wilborn, autore di stampe di derivazione dai Piccoli Maestri e da Jacopo de’ Barberi. L’esistenza di questa sua copia, catalogata con il n. 1845,0825.363, supporta la suggestione che il modello sia proprio opera del de’ Barberi. Il curatore del commento del British ritiene che l’opera non derivi direttamente da un modello del de’ Barberi, ma sia piuttosto ispirata da diverse sue opere, notando che la Madonna assomiglia a quella della Sacra Famiglia del de’ Barberi, Hind 5, e il Bambino a Hind 3. Inoltre, riscontriamo che il tratteggio del piedistallo col trono, e al muretto alle spalle del gruppo figurativo richiama quello dei gradini e del muretto dell’Adorazione dei Magi, Hind 1. Lo stile di questo anonimo incisiore appare maturo ed accurato nei dettagli. Il drappeggio della veste della Vergine, e del telo alle sue spalle, l’espressione dolce dei volti, rimanda senza alcun dubbio alla scuola italiana, e più in particolare, alla scuola di Marcantonio Raimondi. Il timbro di possesso al verso, di Luciana Simonetti (Lugt 3616), che possedeva un’importante collezione di stampe del ’500 italiano, è un’ulteriore conferma della nostra analisi. Engraving, 1520 circa, without date and signature. After Jacopo de’ Barbari. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark of "unicorn", trimmed close to platemark, occasional foxing, generally in very good condition. A very rare work, unknown to the repertoires and not present in the main collections. In the British Museum collections we’ve found a copy, signed with monogram 'NWM' of the German printmaker Nikolaus Wilborn, engraver after the Little Masters and Jacopo de’ Barberi. His print, museum number 1845,0825.363, supporting the suggestion that the model is a work by Jacopo de 'Barberi. According with curator’s comment of the British Museum, the Virgin resembles that in Hind 5, the Child that in Hind 3. In addition, the crosshatching of the pedestal with the throne, and to the wall behind the group of the Virgin and Child is very similar to that one of The Adoration of the Magi, Hind 1. The engraving style appears mature and accurately detailed. The elegance of the figures, the drapery of the garments undoubtedly refer to the Italian school, in particular to the school of Marcantonio Raimondi. The collector's mark of Luciana Simonetti (Lugt 3616), on the back, who was an important collector of Sixteenth century Italian engravings supports our consideration. Non descritta.

         Ercole e Anteo

      1520 - Bulino, 1520-22 circa, firmata in lastra, in basso a sinistra, con la tavoletta vuota. Da un soggetto di Giulio Romano. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera è considerata come una delle più belle incisioni di Marcantonio Raimondi, prodotte nel periodo immediatamente successivo alla morte di Raffaello. Il disegno preparatorio, perduto, viene attribuito a Giulio Romano. Le forza espressiva delle figure è caratteristica dello stile di Giulio Romano. Un'analogia ancora più forte con i lavori di Giulio risulta più evidente dal confronto tra la figura di Anteo con la figura maschile posseduta dal diavolo nella Trasfigurazione di Raffaello. Il paesaggio che fa da sfondo in Ercole e Anteo, con la sua macchia di alberi frondosi e le rovine di un antico tempio, ricorda gli sfondi di molte rappresentazioni della Madonna eseguite da Giulio negli ultimi anni della vita di Raffaello. La fonte per le figure di questa incisione, e quindi anche per il l disegno di Giulio, probabilmente è stata un gruppo scultoreo risalente al II secolo a.C. che, agli inizi del XV secolo, era tra le statue del Belvedere Vaticano agli inizi. Ugo da Carpi eseguì un chiaroscuro, in controparte, della stessa composizione. Engraving, 1520-22 circa, signed with an empty tablet at lower left. After Giulio Romano. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, very good condition. Praised by most authors as one of Marcantonio Raimondi's finest engravings, produced in the period immediately following the death of Raphael. The strongly expressive emotional types are characteristic of Giulio Romano's figures. An even closer analogy with Giulio’s work becomes apparent in comparing the figure of Antaeus with Giulio’s boy possessed of a devil in the right foreground of Raphael’s Transfuguration. The setting of Hercules and Antaeus, with its clump of leafy trees and ruined ancient temple, also recalls the backgrounds of several of Giulio’s Madonnas executed at the end of Raphael’s life. The source of the figures in the engraving, and thus also in Giulio’s drawing, was probably a fragmentary sculpture from the 2nd century B.C, located in the Belvedere at the beginning of the 16th century. Because of the flatness of Marcantonio's composition it is regarded as engraved after Giulio's own version of the sculpture. Ugo da Carpi made a chiaroscuro woodcut in reverse of the same composition.

Pierre Bercheur (ca. 1290-1362), a French Benedictine scholar was a translator, encyclopaedist, and the author of several works, including the Ovidius Moralizatus (Ovide Moralise) (1340), a work of mythography. The Gesta Romanorum, a Latin collection of anecdotes and tales, is sometimes attributed to him. In the 1340s, Bercheur became a student at the University of Paris and met Petrarch there again, having first met him in Avignon in the 1320s. The Italian poet was on an embassy to the French court. Bercheur translated into French Petrarch's reassembly (in Latin) of Livy's history of Rome. He was an eloquent preacher and a voluminous homiletical writer. His most important work is the Repertorium Morale, for the use of preachers, a kind of Biblico-moral dictionary, in which the principal words of Scripture are arranged alphabetically and moral reflections attached thereto. His Reductorium morale to the Sacred Scriptures in thirty-four books, embraced all the books of the Bible and was first printed at Strasburg in 1474.

         AN. LUCANI BELLORUM CIVILIUM SCRIPTORIS ACCURATISSIMI PHARSALIA: ANTEA TEMPORUM INIURIA DIFFICILIS: AC MENDOSA. Novissime autem a viro docto expolita: & emendata: Scribentibus Ioanne Sulpitio: & Omnibono Vicentino... Additis insuper de novo Grecis: que ubique deerant... Una cum figuris...

      (Venetiis), in aedibus Guilielmi de Fontaneto Montisferrati, XVIII Februarii 1520. In-4 p. (mm. 304x202), legat. in mz. pelle coeva (restaur.) con piatti in legno (manca il fermaglio in pelle), dorso a cordoni, 4 cc.nn., CCVI cc.num., incluso il frontesp. stampato in rosso e nero entro bella cornice ornamentale tratteggiata; testo inquadrato dal commento (in carattere tondo), ornato da pregevoli grandi capilettera per lo più su fondo nero, e con 10 bellissime vignette nel t., tutto xilografato. Cfr. Essling,854: “Bois de l’édition 4 juin 1511 avec les différences suivantes: Livre III, Combat devant Dyrrachium / Livre VII, Soldates assaillis par des serpents” - Sander,II,4021 - Adams,L-1566 - Choix de Olschki,IV,4757. “La "Farsalia", poema epico di Marco Anneo Lucano (Cordova 39 d.C. - Roma 65 d.C.) in dieci libri, è rimasto incompiuto. L’argomento dei primi 8 libri è la guerra tra Cesare e Pompeo, negli ultimi due v’è il racconto delle imprese d’Africa e d’Egitto.. Più che di Cesare, che egli dipinge uomo settario, avido di guerre e stragi, Lucano è fervido ammiratore di Pompeo che eleva a simbolo della libertà repubblicana. Nei suoi ottomila versi la "Farsalia" riesce opera a vero carattere storico.. e vi attinsero anche storici posteriori, tanto più che le decadi di Livio corrispondenti a questa guerra civile sono oggi perdute”. Così Diz. Opere Bompiani,III, p. 301. Ultima c. restaur. per strappi e picc. manc. (non di testo); con uniformi arross. più o meno lievi e fiorit. ma complessivam. un discreto esemplare.
