        Aristotelis stagyritae acroases physicae libri VIII; Aristotelis stagyritae libri de coelo IIII; Aristotelis stagyritae philosophi de anima libri III

      Augsburg: Grimm & Wirsung, 1520. Printed throughout in Roman letter of various sizes and mostly in double columns. First title page in red and black; heraldic woodcuts on second and third titles, devices, initials and text diagrams throughout. Final leaf, with large woodcut of Saint Catherine on colophon, is in facsimile on contemporary paper. Old vellum, new endpapers; occasional stains and a few wormholes. This edition of Aristotle's scientific and philosophical writings was brought together by Johann Eck (1486-1543) and here first printed in Augsburg by Grimm and Wirsung. This is also the first time the beautiful heraldic woodcuts were used. Research suggests that the artist could be Hans Burgkmair who worked in Augsburg at the time the book was printed. Another source indicates the woodcuts could be by the "Petrarca-Master" or that Books 2 and 3 were done by Hans Weiditz.

        Tabula Prima Europe; Iconic Waldseemuller map with Scotland on an east-west orientation

      Strasbourg: Martin Waldseemuller, 1520. Woodcut map with hand coloring. Sheet size 18" x 24.5" This iconic 1520 map by Martin Waldseemuller depicts the British Isles on a typical Ptolemaic projection with a trapezoid frame. The map famously shows Ptolemy's depiction of the British Isles (considered the 'edge of the world' in Ptolemy's time), with an elongated Scotland on an east-west orientation. The southwestern portion of England (Conrwall) also appears elongated. Ireland, located too far north, also shows an elongated south-west. The map, first published by Walseemuller in his 1513 edition of "Geographie Opus Novissima", was one of the most desireable of Ptolemy's maps, and is one of the few maps in the atlas that used letterpress in the margins and placenames. The atlas was the first to show Ptolemy's maps with relatively modern maps. This particular map from the 1520 edition of the atlas, with a missing title, is considered to be rarer than the first edition. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold. Typical age toning and closed verso repairs near bottom margins. The title appears in manuscript. Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477. Martin Waldseemuller (1470 - 1520) was a German cartographer. Considered one of the foremost cartographers during the period of global exploration, he was educated in Bresgau, Germany and gained a reputation of being among the great humanist scholars at the Abbey of St. Die in Alsace, which revolutionized global geographic traditions. Waldseemuller was perhaps most famous for his 1507 large world map which was the first to name 'America' in honor of Amerigo Vespucci, and depict it as a new continent with well defined coastlines placing it separate from Asia. This is a beautiful example of Waldseemuller's work.

        Davide in Preghiera

      1520 - Acquaforte, 1520, monogrammata e datata in lastra in basso a sinistra "L 1520". Esemplare nel primo stato, di due, catalogato da Salamon. Sconosciuto a Hollstein. Unica variante secondo Filedt Kok. Superba prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, completa oltre la linea marginale, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Davide in preghiera è una delle prime e pochissime acqueforti eseguite da Luca di Leyda. Luca rappresenta Davide pentito, secondo il racconto di Samuele (II.24.10-17), nel momento in cui l’Angelo si appresta ad annientare Gerusalemme con la peste, che dice al Signore "Guarda che sono io quegli che ha peccato, io ho commesso l’iniquità, ma queste pecorelle cos’hanno fatto? Sia dunque la tua mano su di me e sul mio casato". Il primo stato della lastra, sconosciuto a Hollstein, fu catalogato per la prima volta da Harry Salamon nel 1972. I due stati si differenziano in prima e dopo le macchie di ruggine che hanno intaccato la lastra di ferro. Magnifico esemplare. Etching, 1520, dated and signed on plate at bottom left "L 1520". Great example, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed close to the platemark, in perfect condition. One of the earliest and rare etchings executed by Lucas van Leyden The very rare first state of the plate, unknown to Hollestein, and catalogued for the first time by Harry Salamon in 1972. The first state is without the the rust spots that have affected the plate. The subject (II Samuel 24) refers to David's penitence for having taken a census of Israel and Judah. God offered him the choice of three punishments: three years of famine, three months of fleeing before a pursuing army, or three days of pestilence. David chose the last and a plague ravaged the people, until David again prayed to God, asked that the punishment be inflicted on him and his family rather than on the country, and God toldthe angel to cease the ravages. In the etching, the angel holds arrows, symbols of the plague. A very good example. Bartsch, 29; S. Salamon, Lucas van Leyden, n. 87;Hollstein, X.81.29; F. Kok, 1978, B.29 a Dimensioni 77 117mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Augusto

      1520 - Bulino, circa 1520. Della serie I dodici Cesari. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, o di tre, avanti l’indirizzo dell’editore Salamanca e la numerazione. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. La serie I dodici Cesari rappresenta il primo esempio di riproduzione di monete antiche, ingrandite in misura significativa, secondo una pratica che divenne poi abituale e fu adottata da Daniel Hopfer ad Augsburg. Secondo Vasari, i ritratti degli imperatori erano tra le opere che Raffaello spedì a Dürer, il quale successivamente lodò l’arte di Marcantonio. Questa serie documenta il profondo interesse dell’artista per il settore antiquario, che lo spinse a riprodurre i modelli nel modo più fedele possibile. Per affinità stilistiche con l’incisione raffigurante Carlo V (B. 497), le opere possono essere datate intorno al 1520. Molto rara. Engraving, circa 1520. Series The Twelve Caesars. Example in the first state of two, or three, on the address of publisher Salamanca and numbering. Magnificent proof, rich tone, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed on copperplate, in perfect condition. The series The Twelve Caesars is the first example of reproduction of ancient coins, enlarged significantly, a practice which became routine and was adopted by Daniel Hopfer in Augsburg. According to Vasari, the portraits of the emperors were among the works that Raphael sent to Dürer, who later praised the art of Marcantonio. This series documents the artist's deep interest in the field antiquarian, which prompted him to play the models as closely as possible. For stylistic affinities with the engraving depicting Charles V (B. 497), the work can be dated around 1520. Very rare.

TEXT: Processionals include the texts and chants for liturgical processions. Each person within a religious order (friars, monks, or nuns) had his or her own Processional, usually rather small books. This Processional is somewhat larger, and is certainly more grandly illuminated than many surviving examples. Many of the surviving examples, particularly those with illumination, were made for nuns. ILLISTURATION: This illuminated Processional has twelve historiated initials that are similar in style to the works attributed to Master of Girard Acarie, who was active during the last years of the manuscript trade in Rouen. They were almost certainly by an artist working in his circle. Generally, the initials here share the Master's palate with rose, blue, red-grey, and gold predominating. The initials in this manuscript are smaller and more modest than ones attributed to Master of Girard Acarie himself. PROVENANCE: The style of the script and illumination establishes that this processional was made in Rouen c. 1520-1530. The contents follow the Dominican liturgy, particularly that of the Dominican nuns of the royal monastery of St. Mathew of Rouen. More recently, it belonged it Sir Thomas Phillipps. CONDITION: Covers are slightly scuffed, wear along bands, but in excellent condition. Full description and photographs available.

        Leçons de perspective positive. Paris, Mamert Patisson, 1576. Folio. With illustrations on perspective on 60 full-page etched plates, one for each lesson, most showing perspective architectural drawings, numerous decorative woodcut headpieces, initials and a tailpiece. Recased in its original contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

      BAL 95; Berlin Kat. 4699; Fowler 26; Vagnetti EIIb29. First edition of a beautifully illustrated manual on perspective for use of painters, sculptors and architects by Jacques Androuet Du Cerveau (ca. 1520-1584), one of the most fertile architects of the second half of the 16th century. He started the Pont-Neuf at Paris by order of Henri III, but the civil war prevented its completion. By order of Henri IV he worked at the gallery of the Louvre, but being a Protestant, Androuet had to flee Paris. The present work teaches the art of perspective in 60 lessons, offering gradually increasingly difficult problems as aids to the artist in constructing perspective views. The lessons are clearly illustrated with one plate for each lesson. The plates have great charm, thanks to both the arrangement of the illustrations and by the clear and strong designs. Most were etched by Androuet du Cerceau himself, and show perspective views and projections first of geometric figures and solids, then of increasingly elaborate buildings, architectural details and landscapes.With small tears repaired in three plates, only 1 affecting the pictorial image, and a small rust hole in another, but still in good condition. Kept in half morocco velvet-lined box. Recased, with the parchment somewhat stained.

        Placentini ord. pre. ad Jllustriss.et inuictiss. Principes et populos Germanie: in Martinu Lutherum Vuittenbergensem or. Here. Nationis gloriam violantem: Oratio.

      Leipzig Melchior Lotter d Ä Format: Kl-4° [64] S Mit breiter floraler und figurativer Holzschnitt-Bordüre und großer 6zeiliger Holzschnitt-Initiale Schlichter späterer Interims-Umschlag 1520 - Italiens Reaktion auf die Thesen Martin Luthers*** Zweite Ausgabe der nur zweimal gedruckten, überaus seltenen Schrift des Dominikanerpaters Tommaso Radini Tedeschi da Piacenza (1488-1527), der sich hier mit den Thesen und reformatorischen Ansätzen Martin Luthers auseinandersetzt, "nunc vero secundo Lipsiae apud Melchiorem Lottherum seniorem est excusa. Anno M.D.XX. Mense Octobris" (Kolophon). Die erste Ausgabe war im katholischen Köln im selben Jahre 1520 erschienen (VD16 R 84).Tommaso Radini Tedesci stammt aus Piacenza, trat in den Konvent von S. Eustorgio in Mailand ein und erlangte Berühmtheit ebenso als Theologe wie als Dichter mit seinem Hauptwerk der „Calipsichia". „Tommaso Radino, dell’ordine de’ predicatori, buono teologo, ma miglior oratore e poeta, che fece la ‚Calipsichia’ col ‘Siderale Abisso’. Mancò in Roma nel tempo dell’infelice captura di essa dall’essercito di Carlo V imperatore nel 1527". In seiner vorliegenden Schrift wird Luther vorgeworfen, mit seiner Neuerungsbewegung als Ketzer den Ruf der deutschen Fürsten wie der deutschen Völker verunglimpft zu haben („Nationis gloriam violantem oratio"). Das Werk ist insofern von Bedeutung, da es nicht in erster Linie die Meinung der Päpste selbst, sondern eines humanistisch gebildeten Italieners wiedergibt – und damit zu einer höchst interessanten Schilderung Deutschlands aus der südlichen Sicht Norditaliens wird. Die hübsche Titelvignette zeigt oben zwei Füllhörner, aus denen exotische Vögel herausfliegen. Sie stoßen in üppigem Rankenwerk auf volatile Monster, die sich aus den Blättern zu formieren scheinen. Unten sind um einen Vasenkelch zwei drachenähnliche Wesen dargestellt, deren Schwänze an den Flanken aufragen und sich wiederum zu wilden Blattbordüren aufwachsen, in denen anthropomorphe Gestalten, verzerrte Gesichter und Schemen erscheinen.Interessant ist auch die Typographie, die auf dem Titelblatt eine gotisch Type zeigt - ganz in der Tradition der Reformationsdrucke (und auch im selben Format). Im Block ist dann plötzlich konsequent eine herrliche, an italienischen Typen orientierte Antiqua-Type verwendet. Rechts etwas knapp beschnitten, aber ohne Titelbordürenverlust, sonst - auch rechts - sehr breitrandig, mit zeitgenössischer Rubrikation, vor allem Unterstreichungen in Rot, Sepia und wenigen Anmerkungen von alter Hand. Außergewöhnlich frisches und wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. Von größter Seltenheit. VD16 R 85. Zweite Ausgabe [Attributes: First Edition]

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.

        Leçons de perspective positive. Paris, Mamert Patisson, 1576. Folio. With illustrations on perspective on 60 full-page etched plates, one for each lesson, most showing perspective architectural drawings, numerous decorative woodcut headpieces, initials and a tailpiece. Recased in its original contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

      - BAL 95; Berlin Kat. 4699; Fowler 26; Vagnetti EIIb29. First edition of a beautifully illustrated manual on perspective for use of painters, sculptors and architects by Jacques Androuet Du Cerveau (ca. 1520-1584), one of the most fertile architects of the second half of the 16th century. He started the Pont-Neuf at Paris by order of Henri III, but the civil war prevented its completion. By order of Henri IV he worked at the gallery of the Louvre, but being a Protestant, Androuet had to flee Paris. The present work teaches the art of perspective in 60 lessons, offering gradually increasingly difficult problems as aids to the artist in constructing perspective views. The lessons are clearly illustrated with one plate for each lesson. The plates have great charm, thanks to both the arrangement of the illustrations and by the clear and strong designs. Most were etched by Androuet du Cerceau himself, and show perspective views and projections first of geometric figures and solids, then of increasingly elaborate buildings, architectural details and landscapes.With small tears repaired in three plates, only 1 affecting the pictorial image, and a small rust hole in another, but still in good condition. Kept in half morocco velvet-lined box. Recased, with the parchment somewhat stained.
