        Pratica Mercantivol composta e ordenada per en Joan Vãtallol de la Ciutat de Mallorques.

      [Lyons:] Jean de la Place, [1521] - Quarto (181 × 127 mm). Recent light brown calf, richly decorated gilt, by Brugalla, spine decorated and lettered gilt, all edges gilt. Slipcase. Erroneous foliation; three leaves with outer and upper margins renewed; discreet marginal restorations to several other leaves without affecting text; a few faint early notes (some cropped). A very good copy. With large woodcut arms on title and several woodcuts in the text. First edition, incredibly rare, of this very early Catalan mercantile arithmetic, with much information drawn from Pacioli's Summa, published just 27 years earlier. "The Majorcan Joan Ventallol published a commercial arithmetic in Catalan in 1521 titled Pràtica mercantívol. Very little is known about this author apart from what can be found in his treatise: that he was from Ciutat de Mallorques (today's Palma de Mallorca) and that he paid the expenses of the publication of his book. The Pràtica mercantívol does not include algebra. Yet Ventallol's familiarity with Luca Pacioli's book is evident in other places, since he turns to the Summa for the 'speculative' part of his own work: theory of numbers, theory of proportions, and results on square numbers. The influence of the Summa can also be seen in the chapters on progressions and roots, and in the introduction of the book. (Javier Docampo Rey, Reading Luca Pacioli's Summa in Catalognia, pp. 44-49). "It is hardly surprising that the most important influences in Catalan treatises on arithmetic of the late medieval and early Renaissance periods came from the French?Provençal area and from Italy The Italian mathematical knowledge would have been transmitted by the many Italian merchants who were established in Catalonia, Valencia, and Majorca and also by Catalan merchants who made long journeys in the Mediterranean and even lived for some time in Italian cities. Almost all the arithmetic books printed in Europe before 1500 were texts on commercial arithmetic Pacioli's Summa was highly influential both inside and outside of Italy. According to F.K.C. Rankin, an anonymous Trattato de aritmetica of the 16th-century contains some chapters that are explicitly attributed to the Summa, while Niccolò Simi Bolognese, a mathematics teacher of the University of Bologna, wrote the Annotazioni sopra l'aritmetica di Fra Luca da Borgo S. Sepolcro in 1544. Both manuscripts contain corrections and explicative notes on Pacioli's most difficult parts, suggesting that their authors used them in their teaching. The Summa was also an important reference work for many other 16th-century algebraists such as Pedro Nuñes, Tartaglia, Cardano, Bombelli, or the Sienese teacher Dionigi Gori, and its influence was also felt in Germany and England The second printed commercial arithmetic in Europe, Francesc Santcliment's Summa de l'art d'Aritmètica, was written in Catalan and published in 1482 in Barcelona. Santcliment's book has clear French?Provençal connections, and the same is the case for Juan de Ortega's commercial arithmetic of 1512. On the other hand, the influence of Luca Pacioli's Summa is especially strong in Juan Andrés' arithmetic (Valencia, 1515) and very important in Gaspar Nicolas' Tratado da prática D'arismétyca (Lisboa, 1519) and Joan Ventallol's Pràtica mercantívol (Lyon, 1521). Vicente L. Salavert Fabiani describes Ventallol's work as 'A very thorough treatise, both from an arithmetical and economical viewpoint. Regarding the second aspect, his considerations of the use of the Venetian ducat as the currency of reference in an international market is to be pointed out [and] his rules of simplification for monetary operations and his table of equivalents is very useful, as it permits the calculation of equivalent values in two or more currencies. Regarding his theoretical postulates Ventallol adopts a critical attitude towards Ortega and Andrés, to whom he refers throughout, showing clearly those aspects in which he differs from his teachers. The interest in Ventallol's m [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ihesus. The floure of the commaundements of god.

      Wynkyn de Worde 1521 A WONDERFUL COPY Folio. Ff (xxiv) 264 (misnumbered 260). Black letter, double column; woodcut initials in various styles (grotesque, naturalistic, etc.) decorative typographical tailpieces. Title within border of woodcuts, depicting Moses (Hodnett 491) and Aaron with followers (Hodnett 492) at the sides, the Pope enthroned with a bishop, friar, king, and laity supplicant before him, beneath (Hodnett 535), a church to the side. On the verso, a most expressive full-page cut of the Crucifixion (Hodnett 465), a fine large cut of the Trinity (Hodnett 451), another smaller with different imagery on folio xiv (Hodnett 362); Christ teaching the 12 Apostles the Lord's Prayer, church and decorative border at side on fol. xxxvi (Hodnett 477). Lovely half-page cut on fol. cxxvii of the Saints in glory before God and the Virgin in architectural setting (Hodnett 538), tracery panels at sides; Caxton's device with de Worde's name inserted on verso of last leaf (McKerrow 46a), on verso covered wagon in landscape 'Chertsey' on the tilt, a curious coat of arms (Chertsey's) above, surrounded by naturalistic panel borders, upper and lower bearing Caxton's monogram (McKerrow 49 & 50).Lower fore edge of t-p a bit frayed, four small clasp holes at outer and corresponding rust marks to that of next, a few small round wormholes to three or four ll., minor age yellowing in places. A very good, clean, well-margined copy in stunning contemp. London calf over oak bds., covers with blank outer border ruled to corners, surrounding double frame roll divided into compartments, containing a column between two half-moon faces, two columns with S-shaped leaves on either side, others conventional foliage & c. (Oldham Shrewsbury 5) enclosing central panel, reversed brass clasps (straps renewed), six raised bands, ruled spine. Alfred Ehrman's, and other bookplates to front pastedown and fly, his monogram and case number on rear paste down, Broxbourne Lib. label beneath. A magnificent copy preserved in _ morocco folding case. One of the final flowerings of the faith and culture of medieval Europe in Tudor England, translated from a French original by Andrew Chertsey (fl. 1502-27). Little is known of Chertsey's life over than he supplied Wynkyn de Worde with a number of English translations of French devotional treatises and works of practical spiritual guidance. Chertsey added his own charming verse prologue to the present work - itself in prose (more largely) and verse - in which he declares his aim to have been one of common spiritual benefit rather than financial gain. The text is split into two parts, the first 126 numbered ll. comprise a very detailed practical commentary on the Ten Commandments, the Seven Deadly Sins, and the Cardinal Virtues; this is addressed to the ordinary reader, and provides a great deal of information on the state of both religious and lay society (as well as beliefs) of the time. The remainder of the work, apart from the very comprehensive opening table, constitutes the "Exemplayre" in which Chertsey gives hundred of examples of divine judgment, wrath, and mercy taken from the Legends of the Saints, the Lives of the Fathers, the Hony of Bees, the Promptuary, and contemporary events of everyday life. They vividly evoke the medieval world in which demons stalked the earth to battle with angels for human souls.However, there is no affectation of piety about Chertsey's English which is expressive, robust, and often colourful. It is much more modern than Chaucer's but certainly not yet Shakespeare's, rather occupying a lovely and much less well-known middle ground between the two. The text is well served too by the handsome and lively gothic illustrations and the binding is one of the most handsome, best quality and best preserved earlier Tudor bindings we have seen.

        Ain schöner dialogus, Cuntz unnd der Fritz, Die brauchent wenig witz, Es gildt umb sy ain klains, So seinds der sach schon ains, Sy redent gar on trauren, Un sind gut Luthrisch bauren.

      [Augsburg, Ramminger, 1521].. 4 nn. Bll. Mit kl. Titelvignette in Holzschnitt. Neuere, marmorierte Broschur. 4to.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe. Äußerst seltenes Dialogbüchlein in volkstümlicher, kräftiger Sprache. "Fritz u. Kunz unterhalten sich über Lemp u. Eck u. belegen diese mit liebenswürdigen Komplimenten wie 'Tanhausischer eselsführer', 'subtiler Narrenkopff', auch sonst wird der 'alte Tanhauser' erwähnt. Der Eck wird 'Eckischer leußköpff' betitelt, u. es wird von ihm berichtet, daß er 'wil den Luther gar verdamen, darub dz er jm die Decretales zu Witenberg verbrent hatt'. Die ganze Art dieses Dialoges geht auf die Schülergespräche zurück u. erinnert lebhaft an die Colloquia familiaria des Erasmus." (Breslauer, Das dt. Lied). Auf die Frage, wie man denn in Tübingen zu Luther stehe, antwortet Kunz: "... es ist gleich wie anderß wa welcher fül pfründen hat, der ist dem Luther feind, und scheltten jn ain ketzer, aber die arm rot, hat jn lieb", Zusatz von Fritz "lieber". - Schon die Zeitgenossen schrieben diesen Dialog dem Urban Rhegius zu (Wolf, Quellenkunde II/2, S. 157 ), während Liebmann (Urbanus Rhegius u. die Anfänge der Reformation, Münster 1980) es in dem Verzeichnis der Drucke mit unbewiesener Autorschaft als Nr. 3 aufführt. - Mit stecknadelkopfgroßem Wurmloch, Titel mit alter Numerierung u.

Title page contains decorative woodcut border with 10 figures including images symbolizing the four evangelists, Peter, Paul and four early Bishops. Printer's device also on title page and on verso of final leaf. The introductions to both part I and part II contain woodcut initials. The title to the second part reads: "Concordantiae partium sive dictionum indeclinabilium totius Bibliae." The main text is in 3 columns per page.

Title page contains three tiny and unobtrusive worm holes. There is also an area of abrasion next to the printed title proper which affects a tiny area on the inner edge of the woodcut border. Small holes present in upper inner corner of the title page (affecting recto boarder and a couple of letters on the verso) are neatly patched. Some moderate water staining is visible in the upper margins of the first few gatherings (including title). Pages are otherwise generally clean with periodic small areas of mild staining in upper margins; occasional minor marginal tear or chip; a few lines of marginalia written in a miniscule old hand. Outer marginal corner of leaf A3 clipped (no text effected). 16th century edition of Konrad von Halberstadt's Latin Biblical word concordance - Part I is attributed to Konrad and part II to Juan de Segovia. Konrad von Halberstadt (fl. 1290) was a German Dominican scholar. His Biblical concordance, based on the Vulgate, eventually became the first printed concordance (Strasburg, 1470). Later, Juan de Segovia (d. 1458) compiled a concordance of all the indeclinable words of scripture. This work was first added as an appendix to the Halberstadt concordance in the work of Sebastian Brandt (Basel, 1496). (See Catholic Encyc). [VD16 C4900, VD16 J753; BM STC German, p. 122 ].

        Beclagung eines Leyens genant Hanns Schwalb uber vil mißbrauchs christenlichs lebens, und darinn begriffen kürtzlich von Johannes Hussen. Im Jar M.D.XXI.

      Nürnberg, Johann Stuchs, 1521. Format: 4°.. [8] nn. S.. . Fadengeheftet, ohne Einband. .. Erste Nürnberger Ausgabe. Volksliteratur im Kampf für den rechten Glauben*** Erste Nürnberger Ausgabe des seltenen Pamphlets gegen den Papst und die katholische Geistigkeit, in der der Autor den Holzschnitt der im selben Jahr 1521 in Augsburg bei Melchior Ramminger erschienenen Ausgabe (VD16 S 4582, Panzer II, 1212) durch ein in der ersten Ausgabe fehlendes Versgedicht ersetzt hat: "Ich Hanns Schwalb das gedichtet hab / Gott bewar allen frummen eer und haß / Schlecht geschriben oben hin / Bitt ain yden wöll setzen sein zill da hin ". Der anonyme Kritiker Hans Schwalb verteidigt Johann Huss und Martin Luther und erörtert die theologischen Hauptfragen von der Beichte, den Sakramenten, Pfründenwirtschaft, Ehebruch, dem sozialen Engagement, den Verpflichtungen und Verfehlungen der "Pfaffen und Cardinälen pfaffen auff maul eseln mit guldin stucken mit purpur Samat". Seine Argumentationen belegt Schwalb mit Bibelzitaten, mit Hilfe derer er die Missstände anpangert. Möglicherweise stammt der Autor, der sich Laie nennt, aus der dem Bauerntum nahe stehenden Schicht, wie er selbst immer wieder hervorhebt. Am Schluss folgt ein Lobgedicht auf Martin Luther in lateinischer und deutscher Sprache: "Titel Doctor Martini Luthers / Augustiner ordens. / Aller geleertester und andächtiger vatter Martin / Ain nach folger der Jungfrawen sant Katherin / Der hochweysen lateinischer zungen ain überwinder / Ain troster der bequelten und fals der sunder / Christglaubiger seelen artzney ain Appotecker genant / Und hayliger geschrifft ain außleger von gott gesant / Der werdt gelobt deiner hayligen gaystlichen leer / Und bewar dich yetz on endt und ymmer meer / AMEN". Titel mit winzigem zeitgenössischen Vermerk in Röteltinte, fast fleckenfrei, das Lobgedicht auf Luther wurde mit Sepia einfach durchgekreuzt, bleibt aber vollständig lesbar. Insgesamt ein frisches, wohlerhaltenes Exemplar in allerbestem Zustand. VD 16, S 4583. Goedeke I, 241. Kuczynski 2422. Panzer II, 1213. Nicht bei Knaake.

        Annales, non tam de Augustorum vitis, quam aliorum Germanorum gestis et docte et compendiose disserentes, ante sexingentos fere annos editi...(hg. v. Sebastian von Rotenhan).

      . Mainz, Johann Schöffer 1521. Folio. (12), 58, (2) Bll. Mit Titelumrahmung in Holzschnitt, 2 blattgroßen Holzschnitten (Portrait und Wappen Rotenhans), 3 größeren Holzschnitt- Initialen sowie einer großen 15-zeiligen Initiale in Metallschnitt. Neues dunkelbraunes Leder (Ecken und Kanten etwas berieben); beide Deckel mit blindgepressten Kalbsleder-Einbanddecken des 16. Jahrhunderts (stark berieben, vordere Decke mit kleineren, hintere mit größeren Fehlstellen) bezogen. Editio princeps von Reginos Chronik und der Adalbert von Weißenburg zugeschriebenen Fortsetzung. Der Text Reginos endet fol. 50 verso. Der Text der Erstausgabe basiert nach Schleidgen auf einer Abschrift Peutingers (heute Br. Mus. [Sigle bei Kurze B2l bzw. A1g]) eines Freisinger Manuskriptes [Kurze: A 1] und einer weiteren Handschrift, heute in Karlsruhe, früher auf der Reichenau [Kurze: B 2i]. Die Überlieferung A enthält im Gegensatz zu B auch die Fortsetzung. Man geht heute davon aus, dass A eine von Adalbert stilistisch überarbeitete Version Reginos enthält (Frase S. 23 ff.). Die Titelumrahmung und die beiden blattgroßen Holzschnitte weist E. Thormählen (Gutenberg Jb. 1934. S. 148, 154) zusammen mit zahlreichen Illustrationen des Schöffer-Livius von 1523 Conrad Faber von Creuznach zu (wobei sie Rotenhan fälschlicherweise als Verfasser des Textes bezeichnet). Diese Zuschreibung ist bis heute umstritten: Benzing/Presser (500 Jahre Mainzer Buchdruck. S. 44 und 46) stimmen ihr - expressis verbis die Livius-Illustrationen heranziehend - z. B. genauso zu wie im wesentlichen Knaus (Gutenberg JB 1952. S. 82 ff.) und E. Geck (Mainzer Almanach. 1964. S. 149); vehement abgelehnt wird sie von Brücker (Conrad Faber von Creuznach. 1963. S. 96. Hier ausdrücklich unter Bezugnahme auf die beiden Regino-Holzschnitte). Die Titeleinfassung war in dem lateinischen Livius bei Schöffer aus dem Jahr 1518 erstverwendet worden. Regino (gest. 915), vielleicht von adliger Abstammung aus der Nähe von Speyer, wurde 892 für sieben Jahre Abt in Prüm, als der bis dahin amtierende, Farabert, infolge des Eindringens der Normannen in die Eifel geflüchtet war. Nach seiner Absetzung holte man ihn nach Trier, und dort übernahm er die Leitung von St. Martin. 915 starb er und ist in St. Maximin begraben (der Grabstein mit einer verstümmelten Inschrift wurde 1581 gefunden). In Trier begann er zu schreiben, neben seinem Hauptwerk, der Chronik, gibt es ein kleines Traktat "De armonica institutione", dem Erzbischof Radbrod von Trier gewidmet, und " De synodalibus causis et disciplinis ecclesiasticis", das älteste überlieferte Handbuch des Kirchenrechts, geschrieben im Auftrag Radbrods als Handreichung bei seinen Visitationsreisen. Die Chronik - zugeeignet dem Bischof Adalbero von Augsburg, dem Erzieher Ludwig des Kindes, des letzten ostfränkischen Karolingers, und möglicherweise zu dessen Unterricht gedacht - besteht aus zwei Büchern; das erste (wesentlich kürzere) reicht von Christi Geburt bis zum Tod Karl Martells, das zweite schließt hier an und endet mit dem Jahr 906: Die Beschreibung der Gegenwart war ein Hauptanliegen des Autors. Bis zum Tod Karls des Großen (814) bleibt Reginos Darstellung eng an seine Quellen angelehnt, dann wird sie selbständiger, hohen Quellenwert erreicht sie ab ca. 875 n. Chr. So "stellt [sie] eine bedeutende historiographische Leistung dar,...weil [der Autor] sich von der mit dem Aufstieg der Karolinger einsetzenden Beschränkung des Geschichtsbildes auf das Frankenreich als die Erfüllung der Weltgeschichte freigemacht hat" (Rau in FSGA VII, S. 8; bei ihm auch die obigen biographischen Details). Löwe (R.v.Pr. und das historische Weltbild der Karolingerzeit. 1952. S. 3 ff) zeigt darüber hinaus, wie der Chronist antike Wertmaßstäbe in seine christliche Geschichtsschreibung aufnimmt, teilweise verknüpft mit heidnisch-germanischen Tugendidealen. Darüber hinaus war er nicht nur der erste Universalchronist, der sein Werk mit Christi Geburt, nicht mehr mit der Erschaffung der Welt beginnen lässt, sondern als weitere Besonderheit von Reginos Chronik hebt R. Sonntag (Studien zur Bewertung von Zahlenangaben... S. 94 ff) hervor, "daß Regino von Prüm es ist, der die durchgehende Zählung nach Inkarnationsjahren erstmals in der Weltgeschichtsschreibung anwendet" (S. 109). Damit wird Regino ein Vorläufer W. Rolewincks, der in seinem "Fasciculus temporum" (ca. 1474 u.ö.) Christi Geburt als - jetzt auch retrospektiven - Ausgangspunkt auch der Profangeschichte nimmt und dieser im 12./13. Jahrhundert entwickelte Zählung mit seinem äußerst erfolgreichen Buch zum Durchbruch verhilft (s. van d. Brincken in: Archiv für Diplomatik 25, 1979, S. 18 ff.). Adalbert, Abt v. Weißenburg (und später - bis 981 - erster Erzbischof von Magdeburg) setzte Reginos Chronik bis ins Jahr 967 (Krönung des späteren Otto II. zum Mitkaiser in Rom) fort. Er gehörte zum engsten Kreis um den Reichsverweser, den Erzbischof Wilhelm von Mainz, und den jungen Otto II. während des 2. Italienzugs Ottos I. Als Abfassungszeitraum gelten die Jahre 966 - 968 (vgl. Lintzel S. 13). "Adalbert verfasste seine Fortsetzung aus dem Bewusstsein heraus, in einer Zeit zu leben, in der sich eine positive Wende vollzogen hatte...Die Epoche des Niedergangs, welche Regino beschrieben hatte, war beendet...An die Stelle eines von inneren und äußeren Krisen bedrohten Frankenreiches unter den Karolingern war ein erstarktes ostfränkisches Königreich getreten" (Frase S. 57). In der Befriedung des Reiches und in dem Aufbau einer dynastischen Kontinuität sieht nach Frase (S. 316) Adalbert die Hauptleistungen Heinrichs I. und v.a. Ottos I. Provenienz: Der Titel trägt 2 Besitzervermerke, einer davon lautet: "Ex Libris Francisci Du Molinet Domini De Rosoy 1653". Das Buch hat also dem Juristen Francois de Molinet (gest. 1695) aus Langres (Haute-Marne) gehört. Er war unter Ludwig XIV. königlicher Rat, oberster Staatsanwalt und Präsident des Regionalgerichts sowie der Vogtei in Langres; in seiner Heimatstadt wurde er auch zweimal zum Bürgermeister ernannt (s. Michaud XXVIII, 565). Wohl von seiner Hand stammt auch ein Kaufvermerk samt Preis (20 Livres) neben dem Besitzeintrag. Vorderer Vorsatz und Spiegel alt, hintere mit älterem Papier erneuert. Vorderer Spiegel mit handschr. altem Eintrag in brauner Tinte zu dieser Edition, und einem neueren in Blei, den ersteren kommentierend und richtigstellend; darunter - wieder in einer alten Schrift - der Name "Paulus Warnefridus" (wohl Diaconus, der eine der wichtigsten Quellen Reginos darstellt) mit Bezug auf eine Textstelle. Im Text vereinzelte Randbemerkungen, hin und wieder An- und Unterstreichungen mit alter brauner Tinte und neuere Annotationen in Blei (jeweils von den gleichen Händen wie auf dem Spiegel). Ein Blatt mit kleinem Eckabriss (keine Textberührung); durchgehend schwach gebräunt, die äußeren Ränder etwas wasserfleckig, stellenweise mit Fingerflecken oder unwesentlich braunfleckig. Ein insgesamt sauberes, frisches, sehr breitrandiges Exemplar dieses seltenen Drucks.

        Brevarium Cartusiense.

      Paris, Th. Kerver, [1521?].. (8), CCCXLV (statt 352) num. Bll. Mit Titelholzschnitt und Textholzschnitt, durchgehend in rot und schwarz gedruckt. Blindgepr. schwarzbrauner Lederband der Zeit auf Holzdeckeln mit großen Feldherrnmedaillons im Mittelfeld (Rücken alt erneuert mit hs. Rückenschildchen). Eine mittige Schließe. 8vo.. Seltenes Brevier für die Kartäuser. Vermutlich bislang noch nicht beschriebene, undatierte Druckvariante, die hinsichtlich der Kollation dem bei Bohatta beschriebenen Exemplar entspricht. Der Textholzschnitt zeigt vier Prozessionsszenen zum Lobe Gottes ("Laudate dominum in sanctis eius"). - Oberes Kapital defekt. Leicht gebräunt bzw. wenig fleckig, vereinzelt mit Wurmspuren. Es fehlen die letzten 7 Blätter. Aus der Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek in Hall/Tirol mit großem gest. Exlibris am vorderen Innendeckel sowie Stempel und hs. Besitzvermerk "Waldaufficae fundationis ao. 1596" am Titel. Der kaiserliche Protonotar Florian Waldauf (auch: Baldauf; um 1450-1510; 1495 in Antwerpen Gegenzeichner des Vorvertrags zur habsburgisch-spanischen Doppelhochzeit) und seine Frau Barbara hatten 1501 der Pfarrkirche in Hall eine Marienkapelle, eine Reliquiensammlung und ein Predigtamt gestiftet. Die Stadt Hall als Verwalterin der Waldauf-Stiftung hatte dafür zu sorgen, "das alle jar etliche puecher nach anzaigen des predigers zum predigambt gekauft und in der heiligen capellen liberei an ketten gehangen und versorgt werden"; ferner sollten der Bibliothek Bücher aus den Nachlässen der Prediger und Meßkapläne zukommen. Entgegen der Anordnung Waldaufs wurde die Bibliothek kaum durch gezielte Ankäufe vermehrt, sondern größtenteils durch die zufällige Übernahme von Büchern und Schenkungen, hauptsächlich von Geistlichen, Stiften und Schülern. Der bekannteste Vorbesitzer ist Johannes Eck. "Nach 400 Jahren ihres Bestehens und nur fallweisem Zuwachs schien das Interesse am Fortbestand der Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek als geschlossener Sammlung verlorenzugehen. Obendrein war das Stiftungsvermögen im Ersten Weltkrieg vollends untergegangen. Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde eine unbekannte Anzahl wertvoller Handschriften und Drucke an Privatpersonen in Hall und Umgebung ausgehändigt, um sie vor der Beschlagnahmung durch die Nationalsozialisten zu sichern. Nach Kriegsende wurde jedoch keines dieser Bücher rückerstattet" (Hdb. der hist. Buchbestände in Dtl.). - Vgl. Panzer VIII, 74, 1277 (am Titel datiert "MDXXI die XII. Aprilis"). Moreau 38.

        Isagoge in Typum Cosmographicum seu Mappam Mundi

      Landschut: Johannes Weyssenburger, 1521. Small quarto. (7 7/8 x 6 inches). [8]pp. Wood-cut map on the title. Quarter vellum with tips over marbled paper covered boards, black morocco label on upper cover. Modern red half morocco and cloth slipcase. First edition of geographer Peter Apianus' first printed work, describing a large world map of which no copy has survived. The ellipsoidal map herein described is thought to have been based on the great Waldseemüller map of 1507, the first world map to use the term "America" Published about four years before his Cosmographicus Liber (which passed through thirty-five editions in the sixteenth century), the Isagoge is divided into twelve "Propositiones" showing how to use the map. Many of the comments and instructions in this guide are intended to explain the use of the map for astronomical and calendrical calculations. In his preface, he mentions his "Cosmography," which was not published until 1524, and which still stands as a foundational work on the subject. The preliminary section of the Isagoge was reissued in part in his Declaratio et Usus Type Cosmographici at Regensburg, probably the next year. "Harrisse, who knew this 'rare pamphlet' only in the copy in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, believed that it could not describe the 1520 map and argued ingeniously that the 1520 map was published at the expense of Luc Alantse, whereas the Isagoge was dedicated to the Duke of Saxony. Ducal patronage would almost certainly supersede that of a private citizen. The James Ford Bell catalogue dates the Isagoge to 1520. Weyssenberger was the publisher of both the Isagoge and the Cosmographicus Liber. The map described in the Isagoge, although no copy is known, is a landmark in the history of the geography of the New World and this pamphlet describing it is an Americanum of the greatest rarity and cartographical significance" (Nebenzahl). Apianus was a Professor of Mathematics in Vienna, as well as a mapmaker, writer, and leading authority on cosmography - a subject encompassing astronomy, geography, and cartography. The woodcut map on the title of the Isagoge shows Europe, Asia and Africa, with Venice, Portugal and "Callicut" (i.e. Kozhikode) identified. Very rare in the market with only three copies traced for sale in the last century.

        Copia Heliografica de la Tira de la Peregrnacion [Codex Boturini]

      37pp with accordion pull out codex with 46, each two panels equals one of the original panels. Octavo (8 1/4" x 6"; codex 7 3/4" x 230") issued in stiff yellow boards and black lettering to spine and front label. Limited to 15 copies of which this is number 8. 1st edition.The story of the conquest of Mexico by a small band of European soldiers of fortune is one of the most engaging sagas in human history, and, at least in its outlines, one of the best known to contemporary audiences. But the story of the Mexican rulers conquered by Cortez, the Mexica Aztecs, a tribe of nomads who had come from the northern deserts and within a few generations conquered nearly all the world known to them, is equally gripping, if not as famous. It is a tale of pilgrimage and omens, of lightning raids and ritual skirmishes, of stoic perseverance and uncanny luck, of defeat and near annihilation, of divine mandates and individual aberrations, of sudden reverses and desperate gambles against impossible odds, of shifting alliances and stunning spectacles, of palace intrigues and judicious marriages, of delicate compromise and stone- faced brinksmanship, of draconian protocol and whimsical chivalry, of carefully adjusted social organization and the forging of the largest and most flamboyant empire meso- America had seen. It is this story that the author of Codex Boturini set out to tell. How fully he could tell it we cannot know, because the manuscript ends in a rip in the middle of the twenty second page. We cannot even know whether he continued from this point or stopped his painting here. The empty space at the lower right of page 21 and the bottom of the surviving portion of page 22 suggest that some circumstance forced him to stop at this point, but it is also possible that he had artistic or symbolic reasons for leaving these spaces blank, and that more of the story was told on a portion of the manuscript that is now lost. In its present state, the manuscript tells of the origins of the Mexica on Aztlan island, their wanderings through central Mexico, and their defeat and humiliation at the hands of King Coxcoxtli. At the beginning of page 22, we see two Mexica, freed from their Colhuan captivity, with knives in their hands and nasty expressions on their faces, looking for revenge, perhaps with a sense of their destiny as future lords of their recent masters. The middle of the twenty second page is a poignant place for the manuscript to break off. As it now remains, the book is a strip of amatl (fig bark) paper approximately 19 cm tall and 549 cm long, folded accordion fashion into pages averaging about 24 cm across. Figures are drawn in black ink. Except for a reddish ink connecting dates, no color is used. The quality of line is similar to that of other Mexican manuscripts: it is fluid and supple, providing a precise frame for objects rendered. Dates are drawn in a neat and regular manner. Humans, place signs, and other symbols are drawn in a sort of simplified shorthand that might seem awkward if the figures were taken out of the overall design of the manuscript. Composition in most indigenous books is dense and crowded, suggesting the patterns of oriental rugs to some commentators. This is not the case with Codex Boturini. The scribe, as Donald Robertson has pointed out, leaves generous areas of open space, at times suggesting a spaceless landscape, an open field in which persons, dates, and place names can interact in freedom and solitude. Most of the pages of the book contain columns of dates, like those on pages 18, 19, and 20. The curved and rectangular shapes balance and play against each other in a wide range of designs, providing pleasing variety as well as carefully modulated rhythmic development. The scribe tends to present human figures in groups of four and five, primarily for the religious and cosmological significance of these numbers. He works well within this limitation, showing as much versatility in handling these clusters of four as in overall composition. The course of the Mexica is indicated by a path of footprints moving along with the narrative. This trail may seem childish or cute, but its significance goes deeper than may appear at first glance. The footprints help unify the design of the manuscript. In many Mexican books, and even in ceremonies and in architecture, footprints indicate the presence of an unseen god. These footprints, then, probably do not represent the impression left by the feet of the passing Mexica, but the path of their primary god, Huitzilopochtli. We may read them as the fate the Mexica must follow, or, to put it in the terms of other cultures, their Tao or their Wierd. The style of Codex Boturini is deceptively simple: though it shows none of the soul-wrenching force of Codex Borgia, or the serene mastery of Codex Vindobonensis, or the colorful grandeur of Codex Borbonicus, its artist was a master who deserves our respect. The provenience of the manuscript has provoked little debate. On the grounds of style and content, we can feel relatively sure that it was produced in or near Mexico City-Tenochtitlan. A number of scholars have assigned it a preconquest date, but cogent arguments have been advanced for an early colonial (c.1521 - c.1540) date of composition. Perhaps the best evidence for this is a tree on the third page which seems to show strong European influence, though such contamination apparently does not occur elsewhere in the codex. Few preconquest books have survived, though we know that large numbers of them were produced before the coming of the Spaniards. The Mexican people continued to make them for some time after the conquest, picking up more and more European techniques as time went by. Types of pre-Columbian manuscripts include religious books, histories, genealogies, books for determining suitable marriage partners and interpreting dreams, books used in divination and the practice of law, and a wide variety of bureaucratic documents including tribute lists, demographic surveys, and political dossiers. The system of writing was iconographic: it represented ideas by highly stylized pictures. Though some manuscripts employ forms of rebus writing, the iconographic system did not dictate a fixed sequence of words, as does our Roman alphabet, but rather a set of concepts that could be verbally formulated in a number of different ways. In fact, a book of this sort could be read by people who did not speak the language of the original scribe. This must have been particularly useful in the Valley of Mexico where many peoples speaking many different languages came together. And it is one of the reasons why an interpretation of the sort presented here can be understood by people whose Nahuatl vocabulary is limited to a few English loan words like "tomato" and "coyote" (from "tomatl" and "coyotl").Condition:Text age darkened, front hinge cracked and seperated, back hinge cracked, A good to very good copy of a very scarce item.

Title page just slightly soiled, two leaves with minor browning to lower corners, two tiny marginal stains, otherwise A FINE, FRESH COPY IN A VERY WELL-PRESERVED BINDING, the leather lustrous, and the blindstamped details remarkably sharp. This is a happy combination of two Boccaccio first editions in a wonderful Renaissance binding by a known binder, and with distinguished provenance. "Amorosa" tells of a dream of love in 50 cantos of terza rima, the text here with Boccaccio's own revisions, as well as with additional work by the humanist editor Claricio, who includes a defense of Boccaccio's poetry. The tale follows a dreamer led by a female guide through a castle to the garden where his beloved awaits, plot elements that are clearly reminiscent of Dante, and modern critics now see "Amorosa" as having exerted influence on Petrarch. The bound-in incunabular text here, the novel "Urbano," was represented originally as a newly discovered work by Boccaccio, but it is now known to be a spurious work variously attributed to Giovanni Buonsignori, Buonaccorsi da Ginestrata, or Cambio de Stefano. The hero, Urbano, is the son of Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa and a peasant girl whom he raped. Urbano bears a strong resemblance to the emperor's legitimate heir, Speculo, and is tricked by unscrupulous Florentine merchants into marrying the daughter of a sultan who believes him to be the emperor's heir. After numerous dramatic twists that include the death of Speculo, the plot is resolved when Frederick acknowledges Urbano as his heir. The first dated work by our Bolognese printer Franciscus de Benedictis (known by the nickname "Plato") appeared in 1482, and he began printing regularly in 1487, mostly for publisher Benedictus Hectoris. He issued several undated works in Venice, but continued printing in Bologna until six months before his death in August of 1496. BMC notes that he was known as a "Printer of mark" and was respected by his patrons as "a man of probity as well as of some cultivation." Binder Claes (Nicholas) van Doersmaele (or Claus Duermale) was active in Antwerp beginning in 1533. Goldschmidt notes that he was "appointed 'Stadsboekbinder' for the town of Antwerp" after the death of Willem Vorsterman in 1543, and that "the account books in the Antwerp achives after that date are bound by him." His name contines to appear in the archives as a binder until 1549. Our binding was probably executed around the time van Doersmaele became the state bookbinder, as the panel gives the age of Charles V (b. 1500) as 42. This particular panel stamp is celebrated: in his "Flemish and Related Panel-Stamped Bindings," Staffan Fogelmark says that, among cast panels, "it has been acclaimed a masterpiece never to have been surpassed." Our copy was was once owned by Scottish patriot, political theorist, and book collector Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun (1653?-1716), who amassed a library of over 6,000 volumes, the largest private library in Scotland. Fletcher kept a meticulous manuscript catalogue of his books, and the library remained largely intact until the 1960s, circumstances which allowed bibliographer P. J. M. Willems to compile a reliable catalogue of the contents. Our volume's long residence in a private library no doubt accounts for its outstanding condition.

ABPC. -Though reprinted numerous times, copies of early editions of Vigo's surgery are uncommon. Vigo's "Chirurgia" consists of nine books ranging from a consideration of anatomy necessary for a surgeon, to sections on abscesses, wounds, ulcers, benign and malignant tumors, fractures and dislocations, pharmaceuticals, ointments and plasters, as well as sections on dentistry, exercise, diet, syphilis, among others. De Vigo introduces a novel approach for treating mandible dislocations and describes a trephine he invented, as well as a number of new instruments. Examination of his surgical piece demonstrates that he had a broad spectrum of knowledge in surgery based in part on the ancient Greek and Arabic medical literature but mainly on his personal experience. Giovanni de Vigo contributed significantly to the revival of medicine in the sixteenth century, and he can be considered as a bridge between Greek medicine of antiquity, Arabic medicine, and the Renaissance. (Surgical history). The second part was written by Mariano Santo, a student of Vigo who achieved great fame through his introduction of the "Marian operation" of lithotomy..

        Soldato con la sua amante

      Bulino, 1521, monogrammato in lastra. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilate al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1521, signed on plate. A good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions. Shortly before 1520, several young artists in the immediate circle of Albercht Dürer began making remarkably small engravings that challenged the viewer with a world in miniature; a world of new secular subject and of unconventional interpretations of traditional themes. Because of the scale of their engravings these artists have long been saddled with the unflattering collective name the Little Masters. The core of the group consist in three Nuremberg artists, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham and Georg Pencz, Jacob Bink form Cologne and Heinrich Aldegrever from Soest. This engraving comes from an old collection and were pasted in XVIII century portofolio. Bartsch 202, 198 Pauli II / II 52 79

      Landschut: Joannem Weyssenburger, [1521].. [8]pp. Woodcut map on titlepage. Small quarto. Modern three-quarter vellum and marbled boards, leather label on cover. Very good. In a red half morocco and cloth slipcase. First edition of geographer Peter Apianus' first printed work, describing a large world map of which no copy has survived. The ellipsoidal map herein described is thought to have been based on the great Waldseemüller map of 1507, the first world map to use the term "America." Published about four years before his COSMOGRAPHICUS LIBER (which passed through thirty-five editions in the 16th century), the ISAGOGE is divided into twelve "Propositiones" showing how to use the map. Many of the comments and instructions in this guide are intended to explain the use of the map for astronomical and calendrical calculations. In his preface, he mentions his "Cosmography," which was not published until 1524, and which still stands as a foundational work on the subject. The preliminary section of the ISAGOGE was reissued in part in his DECLARATIO ET USUS TYPE COSMOGRAPHICI at Regensburg, probably the next year. "Harrisse, who knew this 'rare pamphlet' only in the copy in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, believed that it could not describe the 1520 map and argued ingeniously that the 1520 map was published at the expense of Luc Alantse, whereas the ISAGOGE was dedicated to the Duke of Saxony. Ducal patronage would almost certainly supersede that of a private citizen. The James Ford Bell catalogue dates the ISAGOGE to 1520. Weyssenberger was the publisher of both the ISAGOGE and the COSMOGRAPHICUS LIBER. The map described in the ISAGOGE, although no copy is known, is a landmark in the history of the geography of the New World and this pamphlet describing it is an Americanum of the greatest rarity and cartographical significance" - Nebenzahl. Apianus was a Professor of Mathematics in Vienna, as well as a mapmaker, writer, and leading authority on cosmography - a subject encompassing astronomy, geography, and cartography. The woodcut map on the title of the ISAGOGE shows Europe, Asia and Africa, with Venice, Portugal, and "Callicut" (i.e. Kozhikode) identified. Very rare in the market, with only three copies traced for sale in the last century. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 521/2. BELL CATALOGUE A-280. VAN ORTROY, BIBLIOGRAPHIE DE L'OEUVRE DE PIERRE APIAN 10.

Beautiful large woodcut printer's device to last leaf. (1) f., 776 columns (i.e. 388 pp/ 194 ff.), (1 - colophon) f.. The rare 3rd edition of Hesychios' extremely important Greek dictionary, one of the most important works of philology and linguistics ever printed, this edition constituting the first Greek work to be printed in the famous Renaissance printing-city of Hagenau/Haguenau (in Alsace).The first edition of the work was printed by Aldus in Venice in 1514, and in 1520 a re-impression appeared. The present third edition, edited by Marcus Musurus and printed after the edition of 1514 of Aldus Manutius, constitutes the second re-impression of the work, but it is the first to be printed in Hagenau and the first by the notable printer Thomas Anshelm, who had settled in Haguenau in 1516, being the first to seriously rival Henry Gran here. Anshelm is regarded as one of the most important printers of what we now call the Humanist period of the Renaissance. All three editions are rare and important.Hesychios of Alexandria was a highly important grammarian and lexicographer, whose only surviving work is the present lexicon of unusual and obscure Greek words, the richest of its kind ever. It is assumed that the work was executed by Hesychios during the 5th century. The work is extraordinary in that it constitutes a huge and unique listing of peculiar Greek words and phrases, with explanations and often references to the originator or place of origin. As such, the work is of the greatest value to the both the student of Greek dialects as well as for the ongoing work of restoring the texts of classical authors, for which the present lexicon it still an indispensible tool. But Hesychios' work is not only of the utmost importance to Greek philology, it is also a main work in the study of lost languages and obscure non-Greek dialects (e.g. Thracian and ancient Macedonian). Furthermore, the work was instrumental in the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European, one of the most, if not THE most, important philological tasks ever. Only in the late 18th century did Jones determine the connection between the Indo-European languages, thereby founding comparative philology. Only a very corrupt manuscript, from the 15th century, of the work survives, and it is this manuscript that Marcus Musurus used as the basis for the first printing of the work by Aldus in 1514. As stated, two re-impressions (with modest corrections) appeared of this Aldus-edition (ours being the second), and since then no complete comparative edition of the manuscript has been published, bestowing on these three scarce early editions a huge importance. A modern edition of the seminal work has, however, been in intermittent publication since 1953. The editor of the last wolume states the following about Hesychios' Lexicon: "Hesychius of Alexandria lived in the fifth century A.D. and compiled a dictionary of unusual or difficult Greek words with explanations in Greek. Approximately 51,000 entries make it the richest surviving Greek lexicon compiled until the invention of printing. It is of great importance to Ancient Greek studies because it contains countless words and expressions from poetry, administration, medicine, and so on, that are otherwise unknown or insufficiently explained. In particular, numerous words from the Greek dialects are important, not only for Greek but also for Indo-European philology.The Lexicon suffered substantial alterations, including abridgements and additions on its way from the author to the only surviving manuscript (fifteenth century). The production of an edition that gives all important information about the manuscript and the work of earlier scholars, as well as meeting modern requirements for the noting of parallels in other lexicographical works, is a slow and difficult task. Marcus Musurus published the first edition in 1514 (reprinted in 1520 and 1521 with modest revisions). There have since been many plans for an edition, but only four were started. Of the four editors, only one, M. Schmidt, lived long enough to finish the work himself. His edition (1858-68) is now completely out of date.A new edition was one of the most urgent requirements in Greek studies already when the German scholar KURT LATTE began preliminary work in the 1920s for the Danish Academy's Commission for Corpus Lexicographorum Graecorum. The project was severely hampered by the events of 1933-45. Volumes 1-2 were published in 1953 and (posthumously) 1966." (Peter Allan Hansen, Editor of the final part of the great ongoing project of the new printing of the Hesychius-Lexicon)"Hesychius , (flourished 5th century ad), author of the most important Greek lexicon known from antiquity, valued as a basic authority for the dialects and vocabularies of ancient inscriptions, poetic text, and the Greek Church Fathers." (British Encycl.).Though not of particular fame or importance today, the small city of Haguenau played a dominating role in the late 15th and the first half of the 16th century, then being one of the most important centres of printing. During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries a remarkably large number of books were issued from presses in this small town, located close to Strasbourg. Thomas Anshelm (fl. 1488-1522) is considered perhaps the most eminent of the early Hagenau printers. He established himself as a printer in Basle in 1485 but subsequently worked as a printer in Strasbourg (1488), Pforzheim (1500-1511), Tübingen (1511-1516), and finally Hagenau (1516-1522), having by then developed his printing technique to perfection.Graesse III:266
