No printer, place, nor date (Melchior Ramminger, Augsburg c. 1520). 4to. With a large and extremely interesting woodcut on titlepage + 10 pages, ie. 6 leaves in all. Bound in a modern half vellum binding with nice sidepaper with floral pattern. Thorough antiquarian bookseller description inserted on the inner cover.. Kuczynski 1306, Schottenloher 34296.** Anonymous protestant pamphlet written against indulgences from Rome. The book consists of quotations from the Bible, especially the New Testament, and is noteworthy for being not Latin but in translation. Of special note is the great initial woodcut showing the inside of a church. A preacher is on his pulpit reading out an indulgence, a seemingly unwilling 'customer' is dragged to a table in the center where indulgences are being sold. At the center is a cross, but no Jesus, who has left. The woodcut, which is in style of Hans Holbein, is attributed to Heinrich Vogtherr (1490-1556)

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH A MODERN HISTORIATED INITIAL, FROM AN ANTIPHONER IN LATIN
Italy, perhaps Tuscany: , 15th century, but with a 20th ce, 1520. Italy, perhaps Tuscany, 15th century, but with a 20th century[?] miniature. Of the modern initials found on this and the previous leaf, the present one is clearly the best. Not only do we note how carefully the paint has been applied here, but we sense a power and dynamism in the portrayal that makes this historiation much different from the other examples. In such details as the thickness of the figure's neck and the profundity of his gaze, we feel the artist's visual message--that this is a strong, devoted, and determined Christ--communicated with powerful emotional impact.. 591 x 406 mm. (23 1/4 x 16"). Five lines of text beneath five four-line staves of music, the text in a very large, clean gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, three large initials painted in red or blue with elaborate penwork in the contrasting color, the verso WITH A FINE MODERN REPLICA HISTORIATED INITIAL showing a young, strong, dark-skinned figure who appears to be Christ, considerable leafy foliage emanating from the letter up and down the left margin (the initial measuring approximately 95 x 110 mm.).Lower outer corner ragged, the hair side of the leaf with minor overall darkening, slight soiling, and faint wrinkling, but a leaf with no serious problems and generally pleasing, especially because the initial is in perfect condition.Of the modern initials found on this and the previous leaf, the present one is clearly the best.

PICO DELLA MIRANDOLA, GIOVANNI FRANCESCO [GIANFRANCESCO, GIANFRAN, JOHANNES FRANCISCUS PICUS]. - [THE FIRST PUBLIC INTRODUCTION OF GREEK SCEPTICISM TO THE MODERN WORLD]
Mirandulae, Ioannes Maciochius Bundenius, 1520 (on colophon). [Mirandola, Mazzocchi]. Small folio. Contemporary full vellum binding with handwritten title to spine. Author written in contemporary hand to lower edge. Binding professionally restored, at lower part of spine, edges of boards, and corners of back board. Free end-papers renewed. First leaf restored, with lower blank part supplied in later paper - no loss of text! This lower part was blank on both recto and verso. A bit of soiling to upper part of this leaf, as well as two old owner's inscriptions. First few leaves a bit browned, not heavily. Otherwise only light scattered browning. Some small marginal worm-holes to inner and lower blank margins, far from affecting text. All in all very fine, nice, and clean. Woodcut device to final leaf. (6), 208 ff. ¶ The seminal first edition of Gianfrancesco Pico's main work, the work which publicly introduces Greek scepticism to the modern world (i.e. the Reniassance) for the first time and thus comes to play a seminal role in the development of modern thought. With this work, Pico becomes the first modern thinker to specifically use the theories of Sextus Empiricus, foreshadowing the great "Sceptical Revolution" of the later Renaissance as well as the ideas of later modern thinkers such as Montesquieu. The "Examen" furthermore introduces other important critiques of Aristotle that were not generally known at the time (and works that had not yet been published) as well as a completely new sort of attack upon the theories of Aristotle that come to play an important role in l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plein vélin d’époque, dos lisse à deux nerfs. Conservé dans une boîte de bois postérieure ornée de deux blasons (Parchmin déformé, graffitis anciens à l'encre brune sur les gardes, quelques traces de mouillures et diverses taches et salissures dans le corps d'ouvrage). Première édition séparée de l’Armorial des Chevaliers de la Table ronde, d’une insigne rareté, illustrée de 179 blasons gravés, dont 162 en coloris d’époque. A la fin du Moyen-âge, la légende arthurienne connait une vogue considérable. Le cycle des romans de la Table ronde est lu, copié, traduit, adapté dans toute l'Europe et les héros de ces romans, comme beaucoup de héros légendaires, se trouvent dotés très tôt d'armoiries. En France, dès le 15ème siècle, quelques manuscrits diffusent cette héraldique légendaire. Ce petit volume s'ouvre sur une préface traitant des origines de l’héraldique. Suivent 179 blasons dont le premier est celui du roi de France (blason qui disparaît dans les éditions suivantes), un par page avec, pour chacun, la description du blason et les qualités du chevalier concerné. A la fin sont recueillis huit blasons de chevaliers inconnus.

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‘.

[ff. 206]. complete with final blank. roman types in 2 sizes. 41 lines of text surrounded by 61 lines of commentary. Scotus' printer's device at end. some text diagrams. several large woodcut initials. other smaller initial spaces with guide letters. A fine, fresh copy, bound in 17th century sprinkled calf, gilt back (front joint cracking, corners bumped, signature e bound out of order after f). A VERY HANDSOME COPY OF THIS CELEBRATED TREATISE ON EDUCATION, WHICH IS ALSO AN IMPORTANT EARLY DOCUMENT OF LITERARY CRITICISM. "QUINTILIAN TAKES HIS FUTURE ORATOR AT BIRTH AND SHOWS HOW THIS GOODNESS AND CHARACTER AND SKILL IN SPEAKING MAY BE BEST PRODUCED. NO DETAIL TRAINING IN INFANCY, BOYHOOD OR YOUTH IS TOO PETTY FOR HIS ATTENTION. THE PARTS OF THE WORK WHICH RELATE TO GENERAL EDUCATION ARE OF THE GREATEST INTEREST AND IMPORTANCE. QUINTILIAN POSTULATES THE WIDEST CULTURE; THERE IS NO FORM OF KNOWLEDGE FROM WHICH SOMETHING MAY NOT BE EXTRACTED FOR HIS PURPOSE; AND HE IS FULLY ALIVE TO THE IMPORTANCE OF METHOD IN EDUCATION.HE DEVELOPS ALL TECHNICALITIES OF RHETORIC WITH A FULNESS TO WHICH WE FIND NO PARALLEL IN ANCIENT LITERATURE.[HIS] LITERARY SYMPATHIES ARE EXTRAORDINARILY WIDE.ANCIENT LITERARY CRITICISM PERHAPS TOUCHED ITS HIGHEST POINT IN THE HANDS OF QUINTILIAN." (ENCYCL. BRITANNICA, 11TH EDN.) THIS IS PROBABLY THE FIRST EDITION TO CONTAIN THE EXTENSIVE COMMENTARY OF RAFAELLO REGIO (RAPHAEL REGIUS) [D. 1520] OF BERGAMO WHO TAUGHT AT PADUA (AN EARLIER MILAN 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Colophon]: Milan: Bernardino de Castello, 1520., 1520. 2 Parts in 1. small 8vo. ff. [78]; [54]. first part lacking 2 leaves, K1 & K8, the latter blank; part II lacking 28 leaves (G1, G8, and quires H-K). Latin & Italian text. large woodcut of a master & his pupils on title to each part & 68 (of 84) smaller woodcuts in the text. full dark blue morocco by Zaehnsdorf, gilt inside dentelles (small hole in last 2 leaves with loss of several letters, marginal fraying & soiling to some leaves, dampstaining to last few leaves, other occasional stains, several small wormholes in centre gatherings but text legible). Rare. The woodcuts are quite different from those illustrating the Milan 1503 edition printed by Leonardus Pachel (see Mortimer 4). Sander notes that they were executed by several artists, those in the fables being particularly interesting and, but for the date given in the colophon, suggestive of a later, more mature style. Our copy, like that cited by Sander as being described by Leighton, has variant reading ‘Impressum Mediolani…’ in colophon to first part. There are no copies located in North American libraries by NUC. Sander 93. BM, STC Italian, p. 8. This edition not in Adams, Mortimer, or Rosenwald..

SOLINUS, Caius Julius (second half 3rd-century AD) - CAMERS, Giovanni Ioannis (1468-1546).
Vienna: Johannes Singrenius for Lucas Alantse, 1520. THE FIRST AVAILABLE PRINTED MAP TO BEAR THE NAME AM ERICA Two works in one volume. Folio (11 6/8 x 8 2/8 inches). Cordiform woodcut world map, woodcut title-page borders, historiated initials, printer's mark, both works include the final blank leaf. Contemporary limp vellum (sewn on three pairs of pink tawed thongs, early manuscript liners, early ink title and traces of early manuscript paper label on spine, evidence of two fore-edge ties (some minor restoration to covers); modern cloth clamshell box. This volume, actually comprises two works within a single binding, in an instance of a common sixteenth-century book-collecting practice. Both are rare works of signal importance, with the present examples in extraordinary condition. The first is Joannes Camers' edition of the Polyhistor, an ancient treatise on natural history by Caius Julius Solinus (flourished ca. 250 AD). After Ptolemy, Solinus was the classical authority whose writings most strongly informed Renaissance geographical thought. Camers's version of the Polyhistor is quite desirable to collectors, for it contains the earliest obtainable map to name America: Peter Apian's splendid double-page map of the world, at the left of which the new continent appears prominently labeled. Apian, a professor of mathematics at Vienna and Ingolstadt, based his map on Martin Waldseemüller's 1507 rendering, the only surviving example of which is in the Library of Congress. Waldseemüller's map supported Amerigo Vespucci's revolutionary concept that the New World was a separate … [Click Below for Full Description]

Text contains 12 woodcuts and numerous decorative initials of various styles and sizes. Horace's verse is surrounded by commentary. Rebound in modern speckled calf. Leaves rinsed in distilled water (no chemicals used); mild spotting and staining remain - including areas in the first two signatures of transparent gray smudging (perhaps a printing / manufacturing error). Several marginal tears are neatly sealed; title page is a bit faded in areas; bottom inside corner of t.p. carefully repaired with contemporary paper; marginalia on leaf XCVIII written in a miniscule old hand; occasional lines of verse underlined. Outer edges of text-block left untrimmed after last re-sewing. Quintus Horatius Flaccus (65-8 bce) is considered one of the greatest Roman poets. This collection of his works includes the "Odes," the "Epodes," the "Carmen Saeculare," the "Ars Poetica," the "Epistles" and the "Satires" (Sermonum). Commentaries are included by the 3rd century c.e. Pomponius Porphyrio and by the 15th/16th century humanists Antonio Mancinelli, Giovanni Britannico and Josse Badius (Ascensius).

TROIANO
VENEZIA? Circa 1520-1530: (senza Note tipografiche)(). [Figurato Cavalleria-Rarissimo] (cm. 21,5) bella legatura recente in mz. marocchino scuro, angoli, nervi e titolo in oro al dorso.-- cc. 112 nn. Carattere rotondo testo a due colonne, grande xilografia al frontis e 41 vignette nel testo. L' opera termina con "il fine" a carta 112 bianca al verso. Edizione assolutamente rarissima e di difficile identificazione. secondo Iccu, nessuna copia nelle biblioteche italiane; è vagamente ricordata da Graesse, Brunet e Haym. Essling la descrive compiutamente e cita l' unico esemplare conosciuto della biblioteca Melziana, e la data dopo il 1528 mentre Radaeli la ritiene anteriore. La più antica è del 1483 e fino al 1536 si contano ben 14 edizioni, tutte rare o rarissime (Harris "Sanudo" III 34/5). La bella xilografia al frontis, che rappresenta Carlo Magno e i baroni, è tratta dal "Guerino" del 1522. Il poema di argomento cavalleresco, in dieci ottave per pagina, narra la guerra di Troia e da taluni è attribuito al fiorentino Jacopo Carlo. Vecchio piccolo restauro al margine bianco del frontis e all' angolo alto di 11 carte in fine, purtroppo con perdita di molte parole soprattutto alle ultime 5 carte. Antica annotazione manoscritta in basso al frontis intorno all' autore e alle varie edizioni; al verso bianco dell' ultima carta lunga nota manoscritta coeva in 14 righe con chiara grafia. Peraltro esemplare molto bello fresco e nitido di un libro di grande fascino e indiscussa rarità. assolutamente completo.
