Scuola di Marcantonio RAIMONDI
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 co … [Click Below for Full Description]

PETRARCA Francesco
Zoppino Nicolo, 1520. in - 8, ff. 80 n.n. (A - K8), legatura del XIX secolo in mezza pelle, titolo in oro al dorso. Al di sotto del titolo impresso in caratteri gotici in rosso e nero grande silografia firmata in basso a destra "z.a." (mm 100x80) raffigurante 5 poeti in atto di dialogare tra loro; al recto dell'ultimo foglio impresa editoriale raffigurante S. Nicola in cattedra; iniziali vegetali, testatine e finalini n.t. Le iniziali alla silografia del frontespizio farebbero pensare ad un'attribuzione del legno al celebre tipografo e stampatore veneziano Zuan Andrea, "Giouanniandrea Vavassore ditto Vadagnino", che incise anche i legni della "Biblia Pauperum" del 1510. Seconda edizione (la prima era apparsa nel 1517) della volgarizzazione del "Secretum", apparso per la prima volta in latino a Strasburgo nel 1473. Protagonisti di questo dialogo in tre libri sono Petrarca e Sant'Agostino al cospetto di una donna, la Verità, che per tutto il tempo rimane in silenzio. Buon esemplare di opera non comune (lievi tracce di polvere al titolo, il primo foglio e i ff. 6 - 8 hanno l'angolo inferiore bianco anticamente restaurato).

Agostino de MUSI detto "Agostino VENEZIANO" (Venezia 1490 ca. - Roma 1536/38)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venafro - DE AMICIS Giovanni
Soncino, 1520. in - 4, ff. 18 n.n., leg. coeva d'amatore in mezza pelle verdone, tit. oro al dorso, car. gotico su 2 colonne di 43 - 44 linee. Al titolo ricca bordura a fogliame, formata da 4 legni su fondo nero inquadrante una vignetta silogr. con l'autore in atto di scrivere; l'incisione è tratta da Benci, Pronostico, Bologna 1504. 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.

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 capac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basilii Magni Caesariensium in Cappadocia Antistitis sanctissimi opera plane diuina, variis e locis sedulo collecta: & accuratio[n]e ac impe[n]sis Iodici Badii Asce?sii recognita & coimpressa, quorum index proxima pandetur charta. [Paris: Venundantur eidem Ascensio [i.e., Badius Ascensius, 1520]. Folio extra. [10], 178 ff. Two editions of Church Fathers from two scholar/printer presses. 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.

Hus, Jan).
[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 p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ohne Ort (Augsburg), ohne Drucker, o. J. (nach dem 8. Februar 1520). 8°. 2 nn. Bll. mit einer Holzschn.-Initiale „I“, Mod. Kart. 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.

DURAND (Guillaume).
Lugduni, Lyon Jacques Huguetan 1er Jacques Sacon 1520 In-4 gothique à 2 colonnes de 3 ff. liminaires, 188 feuillets chiffrés et 1 ff.n.ch., reliure d'époque veau brun, plats estampé à froid sur ais de bois, dos muet à gros nerfs. (Les fermoirs manquent, le dos a été restauré, le titre comporte des annotations du temps sur la marge extérieure). D'abord enseignant à Modène, Guillaume Durand (v. 1230-1296) est nommé à Rome chapelain apostolique et auditeur général des causes de palais par le pape Clément IV. Il sera un des prélats chargés de rédiger les actes pour cesser de faire taire le schisme des Grecs. En 1287 il sera élu évêque de Mende et Boniface VIII lui offrira l'archevêché de Ravenne en 1295, qu'il refusera. L'année suivante il sera chargé d'une mission importante pour l'île de Chypre et mourra à son retour. Il sera enterré en l'église Sainte-Marie-de-la-Minerve à Rome. Son influence dans le Moyen-Âge sera extraordinaire, tant par la pensée que sur l'art. Son « Speculum judiciale » (Miroir du Droit), lui valut notamment son surnom de Spéculateur. L'oeuvre « Rationale Divinorum officiorum... » (Rational des Divins Offices) constitue une oeuvre majeure dans la littérature liturgique, genre lancé au IXe siècle et que Guillaume Durand vient clore. La traduction fut commandée par Charles V et c'est Jean Golein qui en 1371, traduisit les 7 premiers livres. Le succès en fut considérable et on compte plus de 110 éditions depuis sa première impression en 1459 par Fust, à Mayence.

ANDROUET DU CERCEAU, Jacques.
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.

Abulcasis (Albucasis, Abu al-Qasim al-Zahrawi) / Argellata, Pietro.
(Venice, Giunta, 1 March 1520). - Folio (225 x 315 mm). 159 (misnumbered: 155), (1) pp., final blank. With numerous initials and woodcuts in the text; colophon and printer's device printed in red. 19th-century half calf with giltstamped green spine label. Early, very rare edition of the surgical section of Albucasis's "Al-Tasrif", the "first rational, complete and illustrated treatise on surgery and surgical instruments. During the Middle Ages it was the leading textbook on surgery until superseded by Saliceto" (Garrison/M.). Includes nearly 200 woodcut illustrations of surgical instruments, including a forceps for extracting a dead fetus - a device of his own invention, still in use in modified form. - Abu al-Qasim, hailed as the "father of modern surgery", specialized in curing disease by cauterization. He designed several devices used during surgery, for purposes such as inspection of the interior of the urethra, applying and removing foreign bodies from the throat, inspection of the ear, etc. In his "Al-Tasrif" he described how to ligature blood vessels almost 600 years before Ambroise Paré. Al-Qasim was also the first to describe a surgical procedure for ligating the temporal artery for migraine, also almost 600 years before Pare recorded that he had ligated his own temporal artery for headache that conforms to current descriptions of migraine. His use of catgut for internal stitching is still practised in modern surgery (catgut apparently being the only natural substance capable of being absorbed by the body). - Occasional browning and waterstaining; insignificant wor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Luther, Martin
Leipzig: Melchior Lotter, 1520. Very Good. Quarto. [35] ff. (lacking final blank; minor dampstaining at outer margins). Modern speckled boards, preserved in custom fitted protective box). Extremely early German edition of Martin Luther's Tessaradecas consolatoria ("The Fourteen Spiritual Consolations"), written in 1519, first printed in 1520, here translated by Luther's friend Georg Spalatin (pseudonym of Georg Burkhardt, 1484-1545). The elaborate woodcut border was executed by H. Vogtherr the Elder. AN IMPORTANT GERMAN REFORMATION PAMPHLET. When Luther's Elector, Frederick the Wise (1485-1525), returned to his residence at Torgau, after participating in the election of Emperor Charles V, at Frankfurt am Main, in the summer of 1519, he was stricken with a serious illness, from which there seemed little hope of his recovery. Concerned for his noble patron, and urged by Georg Burkhardt (a.k.a. Georg Spalatin), his friend at court, to prepare a "spiritual consolation" for the Elector, Luther wrote "The Fourteen Spiritual Consolations," one of his finest devotional writings; in conception and execution it remains one of the most original of all his works. Its composition falls within the months of August and September of the year 1519. On August 29th, the Day of the Beheading of St. John Baptist, we find Luther writing in Part I, chapter vi: "Does not the example of St. John Baptist, whom we commemorate on this day as beheaded by Herod, shame and amaze us all?" On September 22d, he sends the completed manuscript (in Latin) to Spalatin, requesting him to make a free translatio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Title within four-part woodcut border with putti and grotesques, two large white-on-black woodcut initials, printer?'s woodcut device on final colophon leaf. A large copy in fine condition. Wrappers from an early manuscript leaf on vellum, possibly from a pontifical or breviary, containing neumes and part of an initial with blue and red penwork decoration. *** Second edition (first Erfurt 1518) of a popular and now rare reformist treatise on confession, considering the sacrament through the perspective of the Ten Commandments. A native of Windsheim, west of Nuernberg, known under at least 15 variant names (cf. the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek authority list) including Jodocus or Judocus Textor or Textoris (Latinization of Eckart), or Jodocus Winshemius or Windshemius, or Jodocus Textoris de Winsheim, the author received his BA and MA from the University of Erfurt, where he later taught on the faculty of arts. From 1517 until his death three years later he preached at the cathedral chapter of Haug, at that time outside the Würzburg city gates. While advocating religious reform, Textor?'s outlook was closer to the conservative views of Wimpfeling and Johann Geiler von Kaisersberg, who ?"conceded to the classical authors no more than a limited role in their educational and cultural program?" (Cont. of Erasmus 2:448), than to the humanist ideals of his contemporary at Erfurt, Eobanus Hessus, who nevertheless supplied the five-line poem that is printed on the title-page of the present work.

Radini Tedeschi, Tommaso.
Leipzig, Melchior Lotter d. Ä., 1520. Format: Kl.-4°.. [64] S.. Mit breiter floraler und figurativer Holzschnitt-Bordüre und großer 6zeiliger Holzschnitt-Initiale.. Schlichter späterer Interims-Umschlag. .. Zweite Ausgabe. 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'. Manco 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 Sich … [Click Below for Full Description]
