        Vo(n) der liebe gottes ein wu(n)der hübsch underrichtung, beschriben durch D. Johan Staupitz, bewert unnd approbiert durch D. Martinum Luther.

      - Basel, A. Petri, 1520. 4to. 18 Bl. Mit schmaler Holzschnitt-Titelbordüre u. kleinen Titelholzschnitt. Moderner Pappband. Zuerst 1518 unter dem Titel 'Ein seligs newes Jar, von der lieb Gottes etc.' erschienen. Die kleine Schrift zeigt eine von der deutschen Mystik herkommende christozentrische Frömmigkeit und wurde später wiederholt - u.a. durch Schwenckfeld und durch Joh. Arnd - neu herausgegeben. Für den jungen Luther war sie in seinem Ringen um das Problem der Rechtfertigung von großer Bedeutung. Luther hat sie so sehr geschätzt, daß er sie seiner Mutter zum Geschenk machte (nur hierauf bezieht sich wohl der Titelzusatz). Staupitz war als Generalvikar der deutschen Ordenskongregation ein Vertreter des Reformflügels innerhalb des Augustinerordens. Er war es, der Luther an die Universität Wittenberg geholt, ihn seelsorgerlich begleitet und sich anfangs schützend vor ihn gestellt hat. Nach 1520 trennten sich die Wege beider Männer. - Der kleine Titelholzschnitt versinnbildlicht die göttliche Dreifaltigkeit. - Knaake III, 1012; Kuczynski 2560; Slg Stickelberger 715 (mit Abbildung der Bordüre und des Holzschnittes); RE XVIII, 786; VD 16 S 8710. - Vereinzelt leicht fleckig.

      1520. 8vo. (8), 127 ff. (wanting final blank f.). Half vellum using a leaf from an antiphonary. Second edition; the first was published the previous year by Garaldi in Pavia. "Early in the 14th century Varignana wrote a remarkable treatise which he entitled 'Secreta medicinae' [...] The plan on which the book is constructed is simple and convenient for rapid consultation. The author begins at the head, and goes through all the diseases in detail right down to the feet" (Ferguson II, Suppl. 2, S. 18). The physician and philosopher Guglielmo da Varignana (1270-1339) was the brother of the municipal physician of Bologna, Bartolomeo da Varignana, known for having performed the first forensic dissection there. - Slight waterstaining throughout; trimmed rather closely.

        Liber egregius de unitate ecclesiae, cuius autor periit in concilio Constantiensi. [Basel, Adam Petri], (August 1520).

      1520. 4to. (8), 231, (1) pp. With a large figurated woodcut "C" initial by Hans Holbein. 18th century half vellum with ms. spine title. First edition of Hus's principal work, commonly known in English as "Treatise on the Church", ascribed to Adam Petri's Basel printshop on the basis of typographical features. Written in 1413 at the castle of one of Hus's protectors in Kozí Hrádek, near Sezimovo Ústí, the book evidences the author's strong intellectual and spiritual ties with the English reformer John Wyclif, whose like-titled "De ecclesiae" has been written in 1378 (Hus however, unlike Wyclif, did not reject the notion of transsubstantiation). "This treatise became Huss's 'apologia pro sua vita', the defense of the views which he had drawn from Wyclif and advocated. [... It] has a place of first importance among works on the church [...] It is the best known work on the subject issued from Augustine to the Reformation period [and] has had a permanent influence upon the development of the idea of the church" (Schaff, Introduction to the 1915 edition, p. xi-xxxi). - A little more than a century after Hus was burned at the stake in Constance, Luther was sent a manuscript copy of the work and, upon reading it, enthusiastically embraced Hus's central tenets, famously writing to Georg Spalatin in February 1520 that "without knowing it, we are all Hussites". But half a year later, two printed versions appeared almost simultaneously in 1520 - one under the original title used here, the other entitled "De causa Boemica" (printed by Anshelm in Hagenau; the precise order of publication remains unclear). These first printings "enabled others to evaluate (or even emulate) Luther's conclusion [... The text was presented] in a disinterested manner, thus allowing an unbiased judgment of its contents"; it was published without polemical introduction or prologue, and the title page, "which did not mention Hus by name, contained the simple epigraph: 'I beg you, my kind reader, to attend not to who speaks, but to what is said'" (Haberkern). - Occasional slight brownstaining; a few insignificant wormholes to blank lower margin near end; old library shelfmark in ink to front pastedown. Quires M and Q bound out of order (3-4-1-2), but a complete, well-preserved and wide-margined copy. Quite scarce: only three copies in auction records internationally since 1975. VD 16, H 6173. BM-STC German 438. Adams H 1210. BNHCat H 630. Haberkern, Patron Saint and Prophet: Jan Hus in the Bohemian and German Reformations [Oxford 2016], p. 158.

        Adversvs execrabilem Antichristi bvllam.

      Wittembergae: [Melchior Lotter] Small 4to (19.5 cm; 7.75"). [10] ff.. 1520 Pope Leo X (r. 1513?21) struggled during the last years of his short papacy with Luther's insurgency and on 15 June 1520 issued his bull "Exsurge Domine," where the third sentence compares Luther and his followers in this way (translation at http://www.papalencyclicals.net/Leo10/l10exdom.htm): "Listen to our prayers [dear God], for foxes have arisen seeking to destroy the vineyard whose winepress you alone have trod." Later he asks God, "As far as Martin himself is concerned, O good God, what have we overlooked or not done? What fatherly charity have we omitted that we might call him back from such errors? For after we had cited him, wishing to deal more kindly with him, we urged him through various conferences with our legate and through our personal letters to abandon these errors." And in the end, the pope decides, "Therefore we can, without any further citation or delay, proceed against him to his condemnation and damnation as one whose faith is notoriously suspect and [who is] in fact a true heretic with the full severity of each and all of the above penalties and censures." Luther received his copy of "Exsurge Domine" on 10 October 1520 and, needless to say, was not pleased with this stern dressing down and excommunication; but how could he have been surprised? He interrupted his writing of "De captivitate babylonica ecclesiae" (i.e., "The Babylonian Captivity of the Church") in order to rebut the pope, and that rebuttal is the work offered here, published on 4 November. Of course Luther stood his ground, refusing the offer of recanting and being rewelcomed into the fold. In no way on the defensive, he attacks the pope, the Church, and the systemic corruption, hypocrisy, and theological errors that brought on his bringing on the excommunication. Written in Latin and printed in roman characters with a few historiated woodcut initials. => This the first edition. Removed from a nonce volume and sewing perished. Title-leaf with approximately one-third missing in blank fore- and bottom areas, replaced with later good quality paper; publication date noted and title partially underlined on title-page in old red ink. First text leaf remargined on fore- and bottom edges, and first page of text with red ink underlining and red ink marginalia in three places. A good copy. Complete.

      Ohne Ort (Augsburg), ohne Drucker, o. J. (nach dem 8. Februar 1520). - Erstausgabe. - Der konvertierte Jude Paul Ricius studierte in Italien Medizin, war 1514 in Nürnberg und Salzburg als Arzt tätig und wurde im gleichen Jahr Leibarzt des Kaisers Maximilian I. In seiner „Isagoge Cabalae" behauptete er, daß der Sternenhimmel beseelt sei. Diese These wurde von Agrippa von Nettesheim noch weiter entwickelt, von Johann Eck im „Chrysopassus" und auf einer Disputation in Bologna jedoch abgelehnt. Ricius antwortete 1519 in seinem Werk „Naturalia et prophetica de Anima coeli [.]" in dem er seine Behauptung weiter untermauerte. Mitte Februar 1519 kam Ricius nach Ingolstadt, wo Eck eine Disputation in Gegenwart des Kardinals und Bischofs von Gurk, Matth. Lange veranlaßte. Eck zwang Ricius zu Zugeständnissen, die dieser in seiner Schrift „De anima coeli compendium" abzuschwächen versuchte. Es entwickelte sich daraus eine heftige Kontroverse, in der Eck Ricius der unverschämtesten aller Lügen bezichtigte und sich erbot, seine Ansicht einem Schiedsgericht zu unterstellen. „Ritius suchte nun sich Hilfstruppen zu verschaffen. Er klagte seinen Unmuth und das erlittene Unrecht den österreichischen Landständen. Diese ersuchten in einem Schreiben vom 8. Febr. 1520 die Herzoge Wilhelm und Ludwig von Bayern, ihr Ansehen möge verhindern ‚mordacissimo Eccii latratus rabidamque maledicentiam compescere, injungereque, ut quae in Ritium plena veneno scripta in publicum prodire non sinat, iniqui notam aut tergat, aut improperii multam reportet‘. Eck wird als ‚optimus maledicendi magister‘ bezeichnet" (Wiedemann). - Im Falz verstärkt. Min. fleckig bzw. wasserrandig. Mit wenigen kl. zeitgen.

Il a fourni les matériaux à la Somme de théologie.2- Acte universitaire par excellence dans le haut enseignement médiéval, les "Disputes" constituent la clé de voûte de l'uvre de Thomas d'Aquin. C'est, plus encore, dans l'activité périlleuse et redoutée des "Disputes de quolibet" (questions extraordinaires), qu'il excellait particulièrement : elles permettaient aux participants, lors de séances solennelles, de poser librement au maître les questions les plus diverses, souvent de brûlante actualité.Thomas conclut l'un des douze exercices quolibetiques ainsi : "Si nous résolvons les problèmes de la foi par seule voie d'autorité, nous posséderons certes la vérité, mais dans une tête vide".Les deux ouvrages possèdent un titre gravé sur bois identique imprimé en rouge et noir montrant Saint Thomas dAquin à son écritoire dans un large encadrement architectural. Y figurent les initiales "IZF", le Z désignant le nom de Giunta en patois vénitien, ainsi que le lys rouge qui est la marque des Giunta.

        La Madonna della porta

      1520. Bulino, siglato con il monogramma di Albrecht Durer in basso al centro e datato 1520. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera viene descritta da Bartsch alla fine della sua classificazione delle opere raffiguranti la Vergine eseguite dall'artista di Norimberga. Per descriverla cita il parere dello studioso di Durer Christoph Gottlieb che afferma che l'opera è sicuramente eseguita da un disegno di Durer ma che certamente non è incisa dall'artista stesso; malgrado ciò tuttavia merita di essere inserita nel catalogo del Maestro, poiché si tratta di un pezzo bello ed estremamente raro. L'opera, dopo l'esclusione di Bartsch dal catalogo delle opere autografe, è rimasta successivamente poco studiata ed esclusa quindi dai numerosi repertori delle stampe dureriane. L'incisione viene attribuita, probabilmente per motivi stilistici, a Marcantonio Raimondi sia dal Passavant che dal Delaborde. Rara. Engraving, signed with the monogram of Albrecht Durer in the lower center and dated 1520. Magnificent proof, on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to copper, in excellent condition. The work is described by Bartsch at the end of his classification of the works depicting the Virgin, made ??by the artist of Nuremberg. To describe it cites the opinion of the scholar of Durer Christoph Gottlieb says that the work is certainly done from a drawing by Durer but that certainly is not etched by the artist himself; Despite this, however, deserves to be included in the catalog of the Master, because it is a beautiful piece and extremely rare. The work, after the exclusion from the Bartsch's catalog as autograph, remained little studied and therefore excluded from all the repertoires of Durer's prints. The engraving is attributed, probably for stylistic reasons, to Marcantonio Raimondi both from Passavant and Delaborde. Rare.

        Opera noua, laqual tratta dei doi Philosophi: cioè Democrito che rideva dele pacie di questo mondo: e Heraclyto che piangeva de le miserie humane. (In fine:) Venetia, Alessandro e Benedetto Bindoni, 1520

      Bindoni Aless. e Ben, 1520. in - 8, ff. (47, su 48, titolo facsimilato su carta antica). Legatura poster. m. perg. Purtroppo manca il frontesp. con la figura dei due filosofi (qui aggiunto in fac - simile, vedi riproduz. Essling n. 1783); alcune iniz. silogr. su fondo nero. La dedica a ''Monsignore Iafredo Carlo Iureconsulto: Presidente del Delphinato: e del Regio Senato in Milano'', datata 15 nov. 1505, è uguale alla seconda delle due che compaiono nella prima ediz. del 1506. Il testo si compone di 30 capitoli di terzine, quindici per il ''Riso de Democrito'' e quindici per il ''Pianto de Heraclyto'' che inizia al recto del f. E2. Di notevole curiosità e stranezza è l'inusuale segnatura del primo quaderno comprendente le due lettere abbinate (AB), inducendo in errore più d'un bibliografo. Infatti Essling (n. 1783) e Sander (I, 2940) indicano 56 ff. perché, secondo noi, nel vedere la segnatura fino alla lettera G, hanno calcolato tout - court 7 quaderni per 8 fogli, ottenendo il totale di 56. Olschki (Choix IV, 4574) ed ICCU, invece, attribuiscono correttamente all'opera 48 fogli. Trattasi, come si è detto, di due poemetti - visione, ciascuno in quindici capitoli di terzine: «Il primo, attraverso un impianto e un lessico di intonazione dantesca, ma con qualche locuzione comune ai poeti realisti toscani, introduce l'autore alle bellezze di un giardino e dopo l'incontro con Diogene e Platone, il protagonista si abbevera agli zampilli che sgorgano dal seno di una statua nutrice di quei "divi", la Filosofia. Nel Pinato di Heraclito il F., condotto da Dianeo, giunge dal filosofo che alimenta una fonte di lacrime. Egli descrive la vita come un progredire di affanni da cui il piacere di amore e il timore della morte non ci fa separare. L'unico rimedio che lascia intravedere riposa nelle poche vere amicizie» (DBIt., vol. 50, p.383). Il Fregoso, nato forse a Genova o più probabilmente a Carrara intorno al 1460 e morto dopo il 1532, fu valente poeta, autore di sonetti burleschi e poemetti allegorici di notevole fama; visse per lo più a Milano, prima alla corte di Ludovico il Moro e poi in una villa di campagna, in perfetta solitudine (donde il nome d'arte "Fileremo"). Esempl.

        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.

        Ercole e Anteo

      1520. Bulino, 1520 - 22 circa, fermata in lastra, in basso a sinistra, con la tavoletta vuota. Da un soggetto di Giulio Romano. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non identificata, rifilata al rame, minimi restauri perfettamente eseguiti, 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 with unidentified watermark, trimmed to the platemark, small repairs at the corners, 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.

Ubicunque autam Christiana et asseritur et celebratur disciplina. (In fine, recto f. 205, colophon:) Mirandulae, Ioannes Maciochius (Mazzocchi) Bundenius, 1520

      Mazzocchi Giovanni, 1520. in - folio, ff. (6), CCVIII, legatura del XVIII secolo in pelle con impresse al centro dei piatti le armi di Papa Pio VI Braschi (pontefice dal 1775 al 1799), titolo e fregi al dorso. Impresa tipografica in fine, testo in car. romano e qualche passo in greco, lettera - guida per le iniz. I fogli prelim. contengono il titolo, concessione papale dell'imprimatur al Mazzocchi dat. Roma, 10 aprile, 1519 con, al verso, dedica di Pico a Papa Leone X; segue la "tabula". Prima edizione di quest'opera e secondo ed ultimo libro impresso dal Mazzocchi a Mirandola (è noto che G. Mazzocchi aveva una stamperia a Ferrara, ma si trasferì a Mirandola nel 1519 - 1520 per stampare ivi solo due opere del conte Giov. Franc. Pico, e cioè il "Liber de veris calamitatum causis nostrorum temporum" nel 1519, e la presente l'anno successivo. Queste sono anche le uniche due opere impresse a Mirandola nel corso di tutto il Cinquecento (cfr. Fumagalli, p. 233). L'opera è un trattato filosofico - teologico che confuta molta parte della filosofia antica, contrapponendole la "verità" del Cristianesimo; è anche assai importante perché, come avverte Olschki, "contiene quattro passaggi relativi all'America". Gianfrancesco Pico (1469 - 1533), signore di Mirandola, nipote del più celebre Giovanni (di cui scrisse la Vita), fu filosofo, teologo e letterato, autore di numerose opere. Alcuni esemplari noti, non il presente, hanno il primo e sesto f. preliminare ristampati da Ottaviano Scoto, il quale nella parte bassa del titolo appose la propria impresa tipografica; il resto del volume è invariato. E' probabile che lo Scoto abbia acquistato le rimanenze dell'edizione ed abbia voluto provvedere a dotarla di un frontespizio con la propria impresa; tale particolarità, non è evidenziata da alcun repertorio bibliografico. Bell'esemplare.marginoso, assai raro, in importante legatura del 18esimo secolo.

        Gli scheletri

      1520. Bulino, circa 1520, monogrammato in lastra in alto a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Rosso Fiorentino. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con l'indirizzo dell'editore Antonio Salamanca. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "cerchio con giglio e lettere I e M", completa della linea del rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione, sebbene sia più piccola nelle dimensioni, riproduce un soggetto analogo inciso da Agostino Veneziano e datato 1518. La scena raffigurata è stata interpretata dal Panofsky come la disputa tra il diavolo e la Morte circa il destino dell'uomo, raffigurato dallo scheletro giacente a terra: la Morte (lo scheletro alato), che simboleggia la potenza divina, ne rivendica per sé la pertinenza, sostenuta da asceti in atteggiamento di pietoso rispetto, mentre ad appoggiare il diavolo sono figure rabbiose e sinistre, tra cui l'Invidia con sembianze femminili. L'orientamento delle due opere è il medesimo, mentre numerose sono le differenze nella rappresentazione: in luogo dello sfondo scuro del Veneziano, Dente introduce un paesaggio roccioso e, a sinistra, un'architettura di blocchi; la figura a destra della Morte, nel Veneziano ha il capo coperto da un cappuccio, qui invece mostra la sua folta chioma; o ancora, la figura inginocchiata accanto al defunto lì ha il volto leggermente girato verso sinistra e gli occhi aperti, qui invece è abbandonato in avanti, di profilo, con gli occhi chiusi. Inoltre, Dente aggiunge altre figure e particolari che lì mancano. Il modello per l'incisione del Veneziano, è stato identificato in un disegno a sanguigna conservato agli Uffizi di Firenze. Datato 1517, risulta in controparte rispetto alle due incisioni e nell'800 è stato attribuito a Rosso Fiorentino. A Roma, dove Agostino si stabilisce dal 1516, il foglio sarebbe stato portato da Baccio Bandinelli che, secondo la testimonianza del Vasari commissionò a Veneziano di incidere una "notomia che aveva fatta d'ignudi secchi e d'ossame di morti". Sulla base delle differenze riscontrate tra le due incisioni, si può ipotizzare che le opere siano state eseguite indipendentemente l'una dall'altra. Secondo Bartsch anche il disegno utilizzato dal Dente doveva essere diverso e più ricco di dettagli, soprattutto nello sfondo, che è l'elemento di maggiore divergenza tra le due incisioni. Engraving, circa 1520, signed at upper left. After Rosso Fiorentino. Example in the second state of two with the address of Salamanca. A good impression, printed on contemporary paper with "circle with fleur de lys and letters IM", trimmed at the platemark, in very good conditions. The composition, although it is smaller in size, plays a similar subject engraved by Agostino Veneziano (1518). The scene depicted was interpreted by Panofsky as the dispute between the devil and Death about the destiny of man, represented by the skeleton lying on the ground: Death (the skeleton winged), which symbolizes the divine power, he claims for himself the relevance, supported by ascetics in an attitude of compassionate respect, and to support the hell are angry and sinister figures, including the Envy with feminine features. The orientation of the two works is the same, while there are many differences in the representation: in place of the dark background where Dente introduces a rocky landscape and to the left and architecture blocks. The model for the engraving of Agostino, was identified in a sanguine drawing in the Uffizi in Florence. Dated 1517 is counterpart in respect to the two engravings and was attributed to Rosso Fiorentino. In Rome, where Agostino is established in 1516, the drawing would have been brought by Baccio Bandinelli, according to the testimony of Vasari, Agostino was commissioned to engrave a notomia che aveva fatta d'ignudi secchi e d'ossame di morti". On the basis of the differences between the two works, one can assume that the works are carried out independently of each other. According to Bartsch also the drawing used by Dente had to be different and richer in detail, especially in the background, which is the element of greatest divergence between the two prints.

        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. 135 192

Al verso del tit. due dediche di Vincenzo de Paride concittadino dell'autore al Marchese di Pescara, ed a Enrico Pandono d'Aragona, Conte di Venafro, interessante in quanto si dice che l'opera venne edita ''inscio e reluctante auctore''. Prima edizione dell'opera dell'illustre giureconsulto De Amicis, nato nel 1463 a Venafro, piccolo centro molisano, e primo libro stampato con certezza a Rimini, ad opera del grande tipografo Girolamo (Gerschom) Soncino, durante la sua forzata attività di tipografo ambulante per sfuggire alle persecuzioni papali. Il comune di Rimini aveva accordato nel 1511 un privilegio di stampa a Nicolò Brenta e Pietro Cafa, ma finora non si conoscono esempi della loro produzione. Estremamente raro; censito in sole cinque biblioteche italiane, tra le quali non figurano né Roma né Firenze né Rimini. Giovanni de Amicis nel 1522 fu chiamato ad insegnare diritto civile nella facoltà di Giurisprudenza di Napoli. Ebbe la cittadinanza onoraria insieme ai nipoti Ercole de Amicis e Vincenzo de Paride. È considerato il primo storiografo venafrano per avere illustrato nella sua opera, a proposito di una vertenza giudiziaria tra San Pietro Infine e Venafro, le origini e le prerogative della sua città. Ottimo esempl.

        Lo schiavo Androclo portato al cospetto dell'imperatore

      1520. Bulino, 1520 - 1522 circa, siglato in basso a sinistra con le iniziali A.V., e a destra con una tavoletta. Probabile derivazione di un disegno di Raffaello, andato perduto. Esemplare nel secondo stato, con l'aggiunta del monogramma di Agostino. Bellissima prova, stampata con inusuale inchiostro bruno su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione raffigurerebbe, come già proposto da Mariette, l'episodio leggendario, narrato da Aulo Gellio nelle sue Notti Attiche, V.14, dello schiavo Androclo condotto al cospetto dell'imperatore Adriano, dopo essere stato risparmiato da un leone durante i giochi al Circo Massimo, con grande stupore della folla. La fiera infatti, secondo il racconto fornito dallo stesso schiavo, aveva riconosciuto in Androclo l'uomo che, anni prima, in Africa l'aveva salvata, estraendo dalla propria zampa una dolorosa spina, all'interno di una caverna dove lo schiavo si era rifugiato, fuggendo dal suo padrone, il governatore della Provincia d'Africa, a causa delle continue percosse subite. L'imperatore, dopo la sua testimonianza, libera sia lo schiavo che il leone. L'opera è generalmente attribuita ad Agostino Veneziano, a cui sarebbe facilmente riconducibile il monogramma A. V., benché Oberhuber si è espresso per un'attribuzione a Marcantonio Raimondi, dopo aver suggerito una collaborazione tra i due. In realtà, già Mariette e Bartsch avevano notato come in questo foglio lo stile di Agostino fosse molto vicino a quello del Raimondi. Tuttavia, il sistema di linee utilizzato, le figure non distaccate l'una dall'altra, sì da creare un effetto di schiacciamento più evidente nelle teste, la raffinatezza e la cura dei dettagli di questo foglio si avvicinano molto ad altre due opere del Veneziano: Ifigenia e Isacco benedice Giacobbe, quest'ultima datata 1522. Pertanto, la datazione di questa incisione sarebbe riconducibile ai primi anni del secondo decennio del XVI secolo. Al British Museum si conserva uno stato anteriore dell'opera, priva del monogramma. Mariette e Bartsch ritenevano che l'incisione traducesse un disegno preparatorio di Raffaello, mentre Passavant pensava al Penni. Il disegno preparatorio è stato scoperto da Oberhuber al Metropolitan Museum di New York, e non esclude che possa trattarsi proprio della mano di Agostino. Engraving, 1520 - 22 ca, signed with monogram AV on a rock in the lower right and with the blank tablet in the lower right. Believed after a drawing by Raphael. Example of the second state, with the tablet of Raimondi at lower right. Magnificient impression, printed with inusual brown ink on contemporary laid paper with unidentified watermark, trimmed to the platemark, in good condition. The work depicts the slave Androcles being freed by the Emperor Hadrian, after being saved by a lion during the games in the Circus Maximus. The emperor, surprised at this, summoned the slave to him, who told him the whole story: the fair recognized in Androcles the man who, years ago, in Africa had saved her, pulling out a painful thorn from its paw, in a cave where the slave was refugee, fleeing from his master. The emperor, surprised at this story, pardoned the slave and freed both. The engraving is generally attributed to Agostino Veneziano, due to monogram AV, though Oberhuber has proposed an attribution to Marcantonio Raimondi, after suggesting a collaboration between the two. Mariette and Bartsch alredy noted that in this paper the style of Augustine was very close to that of Raimondi. However, the system of lines used, the figures are not detached from each other, so as to create a crushing effect more evident in the heads, the refinement and the elgance in this paper are very close to two other works byVenetiano : Iphigenia and Isaac blesses Jacob, the latter dated 1522. Therefore, the dating of this rengraving can be traced back to the early years of the second decade of the sixteenth century. In the British Museum is preserved an earlier state of the work, without the monogram. Mariette and Bartsch believed the engraving after a lost design by Raphael. At the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (inv. 80. 3.190), Oberhurer has found the preparatory drawing, which he believes could be attributed to Augustine himself. A good example of this rare print.

Water mark of a lilie.Lorenz (Laurent) Fries was born in Alsace in 1490 or thereabouts, describing himself on one occasion as from Colmar, one of the towns of the region. He studied medicine at university, or rather at universities, as he seems to have had a peripatetic education, apparently spending time at the universities of Pavia, Piacenza, Montpellier and Vienna.Having successfully completed his education, Fries established himself as a physician, at a succession of places in the Alsace region, with a short spell in Switzerland, before settling in Strasbourg, in about 1519.By this time, he had established a reputation as a writer on medical topics, with several publications already to his credit. Indeed, it was thus that Fries met the Strasbourg printer and publisher Johann GrŸninger, an associate of the St. Die group of scholars formed by, among others, Walter Lud, Martin Ringmann and Martin Waldseemuller. GrŸninger. It would seem that Gruninger was responsible for printing several of the maps prepared by Waldseemuller, and for supervising the cutting of the maps for the 1513 edition of Ptolemy, edited by the group.This meeting was to introduce a important digression into Fries' life, and for the next five years, from about 1520 to about 1525, he worked in some capacity as a cartographic editor for or with Gruninger, exploiting the corpus of material that Waldseemuller had created. Unfortunately, there is little evidence to help gauge the nature of the relationship.

St. Athanasius's text was translated into Latin by three noted Renaissance scholars, edited by Nicholas Beraldus, and has the added prestige of apparatus by Erasmus. The title-page is printed with a four-piece woodcut border, with the title in red and black, and bears the famous Petit printer's device. => The text enjoys handsome typography, side- and shouldernotes, and large woodcut initials. The works of St. Basil is from Badius Ascensius's press and he acted as the editor, the translators having been Johannes Argyropoulos, Georgius Trapezuntius, and others. The title-page uses the same four-part woodcut title-page border as found on the St. Athanasius, bound in at the front, which makes much sense given the familial relationship between Ascensius and Petit.

        Liber egregius de unitate ecclesiae, cuius autor periit in concilio Constantiensi.

      [Basel, Adam Petri], (August 1520). - 4to. (8), 231, (1) pp. With a large figurated woodcut "C" initial by Hans Holbein. 18th century half vellum with ms. spine title. First edition of Hus's principal work, commonly known in English as "Treatise on the Church", ascribed to Adam Petri's Basel printshop on the basis of typographical features. Written in 1413 at the castle of one of Hus's protectors in Kozí Hrádek, near Sezimovo Ústí, the book evidences the author's strong intellectual and spiritual ties with the English reformer John Wyclif, whose like-titled "De ecclesiae" has been written in 1378 (Hus however, unlike Wyclif, did not reject the notion of transsubstantiation). "This treatise became Huss's 'apologia pro sua vita', the defense of the views which he had drawn from Wyclif and advocated. [. It] has a place of first importance among works on the church [.] It is the best known work on the subject issued from Augustine to the Reformation period [and] has had a permanent influence upon the development of the idea of the church" (Schaff, Introduction to the 1915 edition, p. xi-xxxi). - A little more than a century after Hus was burned at the stake in Constance, Luther was sent a manuscript copy of the work and, upon reading it, enthusiastically embraced Hus's central tenets, famously writing to Georg Spalatin in February 1520 that "without knowing it, we are all Hussites". But half a year later, two printed versions appeared almost simultaneously in 1520 - one under the original title used here, the other entitled "De causa Boemica" (printed by Anshelm in Hagenau; the precise order of publication remains unclear). These first printings "enabled others to evaluate (or even emulate) Luther's conclusion [. The text was presented] in a disinterested manner, thus allowing an unbiased judgment of its contents"; it was published without polemical introduction or prologue, and the title page, "which did not mention Hus by name, contained the simple epigraph: 'I beg you, my kind reader, to attend not to who speaks, but to what is said'" (Haberkern). - Occasional slight brownstaining; a few insignificant wormholes to blank lower margin near end; old library shelfmark in ink to front pastedown. Quires M and Q bound out of order (3-4-1-2), but a complete, well-preserved and wide-margined copy. Quite scarce: only three copies in action records internationally since 1975. VD 16, H 6173.
