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.

Radini Tedeschi, Tommaso.
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. 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.

Lucas Van LEYDEN (Leida 1494 - 1533)
"Bulino, 1520, datato in alto a sinistra e monogrammato ""L"" in basso a destra. Splendida prova, nell'unico stato conosciuto e in una variante corrsipondente alla prima su tre di quelle descritte Filedt Kok. Impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata ai margini ma completa oltre la linea marginale, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La bella incisione raffigura un nobile e una dama seduti in un paesaggio con un castello sullo sfondo. La signora, seduta per terra con la mano destra protesa per ricevere una sorta di vaso che il nobiluomo, seduto su una pietra in primo piano a destra, le offre lei con la mano destra. Magnifico esemplare, di eccellente tiratura." "Engraving, 1520, lettered with the letter ""L"" at bottom right and the date 1520 at the top left. Only state or the first issue described by Filedt Kok. Superb example, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed close to the platemark, in excellent condition. The engraving shows a Nobleman and a Lady Seated in a Landscape; the lady sits on the ground at left and reaches out her right hand to receive a vase that the gentleman, seated on a rock at right foreground, reaches toward her with his right hand; he is seen almost from behind; the landscape extends behind them with a castle in right background. A great example." S. Salamon, Lucas van Leyden, n. 90; Bartsch (intaglio) 148; Hollstein (Dutch and Flemish) 148 (only state); Filedt Kok (New Hollstein) 148 (a).

Lucas Van LEYDEN (Leida 1494 - 1533)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marcantonio RAIMONDI (Sant'Andrea in Argine 1480 circa - Bologna 1534)
1520. Bulino, 1520-22 circa, firmata in lastra, in basso a sinistra, con la tavoletta vuota. Da un soggetto di Giulio Romano. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, 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, 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Al frontespizio grande vignetta xilografata (mm. 100x75) che raffigura un giovane uomo, quasi nudo, legato ad un albero; nell'aria vola un Amorino che lo mira con una freccia; a destra e a sinistra due satiri suonano strumenti musicali; in alto la scritta “Ancora spero solver me” e in basso “P. Amor”. Ciascuno dei 3 libri in cui è divisa l'opera è introdotto da una vignetta (mm. 46x66), pure xilografata, che raffigura il Pellegrino che parla “a Violante, a Hacate e a Theodoro”. Al verso della c. AA12, inno al lettore inquadrato in cornice architettonica. Dedica a Lucrezia Borgia, Duchessa di Ferrara. “Romanzo del sacerdote parmense Iacopo Caviceo (1443-1511), pubblicato nel 1508. E' la storia boccaccesca degli amori di due giovani, Peregrino e Ginevra, che l'autore finge d'aver ascoltato (in tre tempi) dall'ombra del protagonista stesso apparsogli in visione.. e reso piccante dalle numerose allusioni a uomini contemporanei e dalla lubricità di parecchi episodi.

Martin WALDSEEMÜLLER (c. 1470 - c. 1522) Strasbourg: Johann Schott, 1520. Woodcut printed in three colours with original hand colour (good, exceptionally fine original hand colour, cracking to image professionally restored on verso, left hand vertical blank margin entirely reinstated), 37 x 26.5 cm (14.6 x 10.4 inches).
"An extraordinary example of Martin Waldseemüller’s map of Lorraine, a major monument in the history of surveying, Renaissance map printing and colouring and a historically significant map of a region that was at the centre of World cartography. The present map is considered to be one of the finest and most remarkable maps of the Renaissance era. Critically, it is considered to be the earliest printed regional map to be based on systematic surveys. It is the first map to be printed in three colours (black, green and red). It is the earliest printed map of Lorraine or, for that matter, any region in modern France. The map is also a powerful rhetorical device proclaiming the glory and ambitions of the Duchy of Lorraine during its political apogee. Additionally, it is also one of the most interesting creations of Martin Waldseemüller, the man who coined the term ‘America’ to describe the New World. Notably, the present example represents the second state of the map (issued in 1520), following on the heels of the first state (issued 1513). This particular example is exceptional in that the three-colour printing is augmented by resplendent original hand colour, some applied by stencilling. The map is orientated with the southern direction facing upwards, a common perspective of early maps, in an era in which a solar compass was employed as a means of navigation. The focus of the map is the Duchy of Lorraine, labelled ‘Lotharigia’ (today a part of France) and the adjacent Westrich Plateau region (Westricher Hochfläche, also Zweibrücken Westrich), which is mysteriously labelled ‘V … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: [C. Resch & P. Vidoue], ca. 1520. First edition of a rare astronomical book. Pighius (1490-1542), theologian, mathematician, and astronomer, "studied philosophy and began the study of theology at Louvain, where Adrian of Utrecht, later Pope Adrian VI, was one of his teachers…He followed his teacher Adrian to Spain, and, when the latter became pope, to Rome, where he also remained during the reigns of Clement VII and Paul III, and was repeatedly employed in ecclesiastico-political embassies. He had taught mathematics to Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, afterwards Paul III; in 1535 Paul III appointed him provost of St. John's at Utrecht, where he had held a canonry since 1524."-Catholic Encyclopedia. This is Pighius's treatise on the "equinoxes and solstices and celebration of Easter and the restitution of the ecclesiastical calendar. He admits that Johann Essler of Mainz back in 1508 had written a tract in which he held that the vernal equinox preceded the beginning of Aries in the astronomical tables by four and a half degrees. Pigghe will show that it does so by more than five degrees, which he does with a great deal of bluster and overemphasis. All that his criticism seems to amount to is that the tables refer the movements of the stars to the ecliptic of the primum mobile instead of to the true (as he holds) ecliptic of the eighth sphere and that thereby all astrological predi … [Click Below for Full Description]

STAUPITZ, Johannes von.
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.

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

[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.

Marcantonio RAIMONDI (Sant'Andrea in Argine 1480 circa - Bologna 1534)
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.

FREGOSO Antonio
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.

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