CAMENI GIOVANNI FRANCESCO.
per Guilielmum de Fontaneto Montisferrati, Venetiis, 1520 - Cm. 21, cc. xliiii. Con capolettera decorati. Esemplare privo di legatura e del frontespizio. Edizione originale di quest'opera dello scrittore cinquecentesco perugino Cameni, spesso trascurato dalle principali bibliografie letterarie. Si tratta di una raccolta di liriche latine dedicata al perugino Alfano Alfani e costituisce, nel complesso, un'offerta lirica giovanile pubblicata quando l'autore fu assunto per la prima volta presso il ginnasio cittadino Le poesie toccano quasi tutti i generi del grande genere umanistico: spunti bucolici e intenti celebrativi, meditazioni sulla morte, notizie autobiografiche, temi mitologici si alternano indiscriminatamente. Cfr. Vermiglioli (bibl. degli scrittori perugini): "libro rarissimo". [Attributes: First Edition]

IN EXTRAORDINARILY FINE CONDITION. In this miniature, the painter has been remarkably successful in giving both the Evangelist and his emblematic companion clear expressions of emotion. The depiction of architectural detail like the window molding here is typical of the elegant little touches in these very small miniatures that could only have been executed convincingly by an artist with the highest degree of skill. This splendid item was produced by the celebrated atelier known as the 1520s Hours Workshop. These leaves represent the finest illumination being done during the final and glorious period … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

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).

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.
