With the letterpress half-title in an elaborate woodcut border with a trophy of arms, putti and mermen. 17th century vellum with 3 raised spine-bands. [6], LXXXI, [1] ll. First edition of a pioneering and highly influential foundational work of anthropology that went through almost fifty editions in 100 years and was widely read throughout Western Europe. Written by the "father of scientific ethnography" (NDB), who based his information on several sources from antiquity, as he indicates in the title. It is the first printed compendium of the religion, laws and customs of the peoples of Africa, Asia and Europe. The chapters are classified by region, including Egypt, Assyria, Persia, India, Russia and Ethiopia. The part on India stands out among the rest because of the addition of new information drawn from recent explorations by Ludovico di Varthema, first published in 1510 (just ten years earlier).Although the many later editions of this foundation stone of anthropology are widely available, the present first edition is very rare on the market. It is also remarkable typographically, with the largest series of ornamented roman initials (A, C, D, M and P) absolutely stu … [Click Below for Full Description]

One of the benefits Vitauro argues, of living in the countryside is the pursuit of 'otium' or honorable leisure, which involves indulging in reading and writing and engaging in learned conversations without any of the distractions that are typical of the urban environment.

[MINIATURE - GERMAN].
[The Arrest of Christ].[Flanders (Bruges?), or Nürnberg, ca. 1520]. Miniature painted on vellum (7.8 x 5.6 cm) in numerous colours, highlighted with gold and in a gold border, probably from a book of hours, but with no text. A finely rendered miniature showing great detail in bright colours, highlighted with gold, depicting the Arrest of Christ, most likely from a diminutive book of hours. Surrounded by a bustling throng of Roman soldiers carrying spears and wearing halberds, Christ appears calm just at the moment when a soldier takes him captive. An elder of the Jewish Temple stands directly behind him, dressed in red. To the right stands Simon Peter, sword raised, having cut off the ear of the High Priest's servant, Malchus, who sits nursing his bleeding ear in the lower left corner of the composition. An earlier episode, Christ's Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, when he learns that one of his disciples will betray him, appears in the background at left. A genre scene, with men working the fields and crossing a river on a narrow plank bridge, occupies the middle ground to the left of the main scene, and the towers of a castle or city the middle ground to the right.The general style recalls the art of the last generation of Ghent-Bruges painters, especially that of the famed Simon Bening. Though the anonymous artist owes much of his style to Bening's model, he was most likely German. The acidic palette, bright yellow juxtaposed with blue and lime green, and the facial types (remarkably expressive, even at this tiny scale) recall Nürnberg painters in the circle of Glocken … [Click Below for Full Description]

HUTTEN, Ulrich von.
Dialogi. Fortuna. Febris prima. Febris secunda. Trias Romana. Inspicientes.Colophon: Mainz, Johann Schöffer, April 1520. Small 4to (19.5 x 14 cm). With a lovely woodcut of the blindfolded Fortuna on title-page (by Hans Weiditz?), a large woodcut initial Q (repeated twice) and several vine leaf ornaments. Printed in roman type. 19th-century half vellum. [72] ll. First edition of a collection of five famous satirical dialogues by the German humanist Ulrich von Hutten (1488-1523), a friend of Erasmus and one of the most ardent supporters of the Lutheran cause. Von Hutten was also the first prominent victim of syphilis, which adds an interesting detail to the titles of two of the dialogues attacking the Roman church: "Febris prima" and "Febris secunda", that is "First fever" and "Second fever". "Trias Romana" continues in the same vain, just as "Inspicientes", in which Apollo and Phaëton look down upon the Augsburg Diet of 1518, the imperial diet of the Holy Roman Empire. The opening dialogue "Fortuna", on marriage, is illustrated with a lovely allegorical woodcut on the title-page. A few manuscript numbers in the margins. Title-page slightly thumbed and a couple spots, otherwise in very good condition. Vellum a bit soiled and the spine partly cracked, but still firm and good. FairMur (G) 215; Machiels H475; Proctor 9872; VD16 H 6346; for the author: Bietenholz, Contemporaries of Erasmus II, pp. 216-220.

1520. Notre blog : https://librairie-trois-plumes.blogspot.fr/ Notre mail : benoit@troisplumes.fr Œcolampade (Jean Husschin ou Johannes Häusgen dit), Oecolampadij iudicium de doctore Martino Luthero. Leipzig, [V Schumann], 1520. In-8, 4ff (le dernier blanc). Edition originale rarissime de cet opuscule. Cet ouvrage est très important dans l'histoire du protestantisme, en particulier dans le Vaudois. En effet, nommé comme prédicateur à la cathédrale d'Augsbourg, il se retrouve au cœur des débats houleux sur les écrits de Luther. Partisan d'une réforme ecclésiastique de l'Eglise catholique, il quitta sa place pour se retirer dans un monastère brigittin, à Altomünster près d'Augsbourg. L'humaniste Bernhard Adelmann lui demanda son avis sur Luther, ce qu'il écrivit donc et lui envoya, secrètement. Adelmann, sans demander son avis, l'envoya à Capito, à Bâle, qui le fit donc publier sous ce titre. Œcolampade loue dans cet ouvrage Luther dont il possède de nombreux livres et affirme qu'il ne changera pas d'opinion sur ceux-ci, même si les anges du ciel les contredisaient. Il y inclut aussi les jugements d'autres personnes dont Erasme. Suite à cet écrit et quelques autres, il dut quitter le monastère en 1522, s'impliqua dans le mouvement réformateur, devint commentateur à l'université de Bâle et finit par introduire formellement la Réforme à Bâle en 1529 avant de la diffuser dans le sud de l'Allemagne. Cartonnage XIXe. Rarissime plaquette, prémisse de la Réforme en Vaudois.

Hutten, Ulrich von (1488-1523)
Mainz:, 1520. FIRST EDITION OF THE TRIAS ROMANA, FORTUNA, FEBRIS SECUNDA, AND INSPICIENTES. . Quarto:. Modern marbled boards, light wear. With a title page allegorical woodcut of Fortuna (Fairfax Murray 215). A nice copy, broad-margined (with a few deckled edge) and printed on heavy paper, title a little dusty, small burn hole toward the gutter to four lvs. slightly affecting text (one or two letters) on 2 lvs. (no loss of sense). Three attractive woodcut initials on a black ground. Two contemporary notes to margin of one leaf of the “Trias Romana”, one noting the price Albert of Brandenburg paid for the pallium of the see of Mainz. First edition of this important collection. Only the first “Fever” poem had appeared previously (in 1519). The anonymous German satire "Trias Romana"(1519) is a different work than Hutten's satire of the same name. The title woodcut illustrates the second (and lightest) of the five satirical dialogues, in which Hutten implores Fortune to grant him a pretty wife, a nice house with a library, children, and a reasonable income so that he can study and write. “Fever” I & II “The picture of Hutten handed down to us by history is that of the militant knight and poeta laureatus mentioned earlier. Yet in his dialogues, Hutten’s positioning of his own persona is more complex and characterized by one development : the one-sided emphasis on militancy is attributed to the escalation of the Reformation controversy (evident in the Dialogi novi), whereas in the earlier dialogues deviations from this positioning are quite clear. “In the two … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ostendorfer, Michael
um 1520, Regensburg. Original Holzschnitt von von Michael Ostendorfer, handkoloriert. Abdruck um 1610 oder früher. Unser Exemplar ist als Zustand Winzinger 245 c von d einzuordnen. Wie bei Franz Winzinger beschrieben mit der senkrechten Leimfuge durch die Maria jedoch ohne einen 15-17 zeiligen gedruckten Text. Im Zustand b beschreibt Franz Winzinger, daß das Namenszeichen Ostendorfers und die Schlüssel auf der kleinen Windfahne neben dem Türmchen später nicht mehr erkennbar sind. Bei unserem Exemplar ist das Namenszeichen noch verwischt erkennbar und die Schlüssel auf der kleinen Windfahne sind noch teilweise erkennbar. Der Holzschnitt liegt hier in einem hellem früheren Handkolorit vor. Michael Ostendorfer wurde um 1490 geboren und verstarb am 14. Dezember 1559 in Regenburg. Er war als Maler und Zeichner für Holzschnitte tätig, er ist möglicherweise aus der Werkstatt Albrecht Altdorfers hervorgegangen. 1519 wurden die Juden aus Regensburg vertrieben. An Stelle ihrer zerstörten Synagoge wurde diese hölzerne Wallfahrtskirche mit einem wundertätigen Bild der schönen Maria aufgerichtet. Belebte Darstellung, die Wallfahrt nach der alten Kirche zur schönen Maria darstellend; die Menge geht in die kleine Kirche, vor welcher die Statue der h. Jungfrau steht. Vor der Säule beten Männer und Frauen mit heftigen Bewegungen. Schönes Exemplar. Altmontiert auf Karton. Provenienz: Das Exemplar stammt aus Privatbesitz und wurde 1933 in einer älteren Biedermeierleiste gerahmt (datierbar aufgrund älterer Notizen). 550 by 390mm (21¾ by 15¼ inches).

It shows the poet (identified by his laurel crown) handing a copy of his "elegant little book" Lepidus novus libellus to a messenger who in turn to brings it to its intended recipient, Cornelius. The woodcut that introduces Propertius' poems shows a man being welcomed by Euterpe, the muse of lyric poetry. In the background stands Erato, the muse of love poetry.

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”.

DEL CARRETTO GALEOTTO.
S.l., s. n., (Milano, Alessandro Minuziano intorno, ca. 1520]. In-8°; 56 cc. nn., comprese le ultime due bianche, grande legno al titolo raffigurante l'autore con ai piedi un cane, simbolo della fedeltà dell'amore coniugale, e Amore alato. Legatura tardo-ottocentesca in mezzo marocchino rosso, titolo e filetti in oro al dorso. Titolo leggermente brunito, con firma di possesso coeva svanita al piede. Prima edizione estremamente rara della celebre commedia ispirata alla favola di Apuleio ed uno dei primi testi ad immaginarne il mito rappresentato sulla scena in volgare italiano. "Le Noze, scritte verso il 1502-1503, sono una parafrasi polimetrica della nota favola di Apuleio (Met., IV-VI), con lo scioglimento dell'originario tessuto narrativo in recitativo dialogato e melodrammatico e corali cantati, e rappresentano un primo tentativo di poesia "barbara"" (Sanesi). "Depuis les Noze de Psyche & Cupidine de Galeotto del Carretto, vers 1520, jusqu'à la « tragédie-ballet » de Molière, Corneille, Quinault et Lulli, jouée en 1671, Psyché est présente sur les scènes européennes : intermèdes, drames musicaux, masques, ballets de cour... tous les genres théâtraux s'emparent d'elle, avec une présence constante de la musique, et une remarquable constante de la dimension spéculaire." (Guillaume Berthon). Uscita senza note tipografiche l'edizione fu variamente attribuita sia alla stamperia milanese di Alessandro Minuziano, che alla tipografia di Niccolò Zoppino e Vincenzo di Paolo attiva a Venezia. Notevoli, oltre al pregevole legno iniziale, il corsivo e l'impaginazione, ricalcati sul mo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jacobo Filippo Foresti de Bergamo
Venice: per Georgio di Rusconi, 1520. My condition description exceeds the character limit Ebay applies to this text entry box. Please see my overall description, which includes a detailed condition report. A beautiful book, filled with incunable, and post-incunable woodcuts, in a contemporary binding. The first history to describe Columbus' voyage to "India", but America (1st included in the 1503 edition). Over one hundred woodcuts with views of cities (including Rome, Venice, etc.), a handful of biblical scenes/portraits, and two very interesting ancient maps (in one woodcut). Jacobus Philippus Foresti first produced his Chronicle in 1483, as a supplement to those Chronicles already in print. It was reprinted frequently. The 1503 edition is credited with being the first book to give a lengthy description of Columbus' trip, the text of which is also found in this edition of 1520 (verso 342, recto 343). Some woodblock city-views were either recut to be nearly exact, or are still the incunable blocks, re-used. Regarding the maps, they are the woodcut with the two circles (globes). The left map is a "zonal" map, known as contemporary to Pythagoras (circa 500 BC). The right map is known as a T-O map - "In these examples to O represents the boundary of the world, the horizontal stroke of the T the meridian running from the Don to the Nile, and the perendicular axis (the T-O maps invariably being oriented with east at the top) the line of the Mediterranean. T-O maps appeared in manuscripts from the early Middle Ages, and the very first printed world map, from a version of the s … [Click Below for Full Description]
