FOLENGO (Teofilo).
( A la fin:) Tusculani, Apud Lacum Benacensem, Alexander Paganinus, 1521, die V januari. Petit in-8. 272 feuillets chiffrés. Parchemin de l'époque Première édition illustrée complète (la Ière, sans images, était paru en 1517), d'un des textes les plus originaux de la littérature italienne du seizième siècle. Elle est ornée de 54 bois gravés à pleine page, évoquant les aventures de l'auteur. Teofilo Folengo (1491-1544), moine défroqué et poète, mendiant et chanteur des rues, est le créateur, avec cet ouvrage qui est la chronique transposée de ses aventuers, du genre macaronique, récit qui mélange le latin de cuisine et le patois toscan, des gros mots italiens et des tournures populaires. Son titre, qui peut se traduire comme des "macaroni" presentés au public par le cuisinier Merlin, a donné son nom à ce genre litéraire. Folengo aurait eu une influence sur Rabelais. Exemplaire avec des rouseurs, quelques taches et traces de manipulation, court de marges comme il est habituel. Il ne content pas le cahier à part de 8ff. "qui manque souvent" (Graesse), imprimé probablement après et dont il y a 2 tirages offrant des différences entre eux. Il provient de la collection du Capitaine Michiels [livres précieux et raretés bibliographiques] dont le catalogue parut en 1774; il porte le cachet de sa bibliothèque et une note manuscrite. Le dernier feuillet, qui est doublé, contient au verso 3 dessins anciens (17ème siècle ?) dont un représente un faune ou un satyre. Cf. Brunet II, 1317. Olschki, Choix, 4550.

Mainz, Johann Schöffer 1521. Folio. (12), 58, (2) lvs. With woodcut title border, 2 full-page woodcuts (Rotenhan's portrait and coat-of-arms) and some woodcut initials. New leather (corners and edges slightly rubbed), both front and rear board covered by old blind-stamped leather (heavily rubbed, leather defects). First edition of both Regino's chronicle and the continuation attributed to Adalbert of Weissenburg. Regino's text ends on page 50 verso. This edition is basing on a copy (by Conrad Peutinger now in the British Museum, Kurze B2l resp. A1g) of a manuscript written in Freising (Kurze A 1) and a second manuscript (from the Reichenau now in Karlsruhe , Kurze B2i). All the manuscrips of the tradition "A" contain both Regino and the continuation, regino's text probably revised by Adalbert (see Frase p. 23 ff.). E. Thormählen (Gutenberg Jahrbuch 1934. p. 148, 154) attributes the woodcuts - together with several illustrations of the Schoeffer-Livius (1523) - to Faber of Creuznach. Benzing/Presser (500 Jahre Mainzer Buchdruck. p. 44 und 46), Knaus (Gutenberg Jahrbuch 1952. p. 82 ff.) and E. Geck (Mainzer Almanach. 1964. p. 149) agree on this attribution, Brücker (Conrad Faber von Creuznach. 1963. p. 96) contradicts. The title border has been used first time in Schoeffer's Livius edition in 1518. Regino's (died 915) chronicle starts with the birth of Christ and goes up to the year 906; especially for the last c. 30 years it is an important historical source. Adalbert of Weissenburg (later the first archbishop of Magdeburg) wrote the continuation between 966 - 968 describing … [Click Below for Full Description]

Martyr, Peter:
Basel: [Adam Petri], 1521.. 43pp. (pp. 20 and 21 misnumbered). Woodcut title border. Small quarto. Later vellum boards. Boards lightly rubbed, endpapers torn. Old faint institutional ink stamp on front free endpaper, titlepage, and verso of final text leaf; small neat ink number on front pastedown and titlepage. Slight tanning in some text margins, early ink marginalia and neat underlining on pp. 32 and 33. Overall, a very good copy. In a brown half morocco and cloth box. Martyr's 1521 Basel letter, which contains information from the lost First Cortés Letter. This is a key work for the New World from 1516 to 1520, including the conquest of Mexico and a description of Cuba. "This is Martyr's first narrative of the discovery made by Grijalva and the expedition of Cortes to Mexico, added to a fuller account of Cuba than was contained in his three decades already printed. Harrisse called this work an extract from the Fourth Decade, but it is evidently a much more important work, Stevens and other authorities defining it as a substitute for the lost first Cortes letter. This work supplements, rather than overlaps other narratives by the author" - Streeter. According to the Church entry on the famous Cortés Letters addressed to Emperor Charles V: "The first of these, known as the Lost First Letter, is supposed to have been written at Vera Cruz, July 10, 1519. Whether it was actually lost or suppressed by the Council for the Indies, at the request of Narvaez, is unknown...As this Letter is mentioned by Cortes in his Second Letter and by other contemporaneous writers, th … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).

REGINO, Abbot of Pruem.
With wide historiated woodcut title-border, full-page woodcut portrait of Rotenhan, full-page cut of his coat-of-arms; large woodcut criblé initial at beginning of dedication, few smaller initials. 12 unn. leaves, 58 leaves, 2 unn. leaves. Folio. Full dark brown morocco, gilt fillets on sides and back, gilt-lettering on spine, gilt inner dentelles (sign. Baum). Mainz, Johann Schoeffer, August 1521. First edition of Regino's chronicle, particulary valuable for information on the period from 741 to 906; the continuation to 967 is probably by Adalbert, archbishop of Magdeburg; edited by the humanist Sebastian von Rotenhan (1478-1534). The work leads from the birth of Christ to the time of Emperor Otto II. Regino (died in 915) became abbot of Prüm in 892. His "Annales" merit our respect as they are one of the earliest attemps to write a world history in a continuous narrative. The two full-page woodcuts show a portrait of Sebastian von Rotenhan and his richly decorated coat-of-arms, surmounted by a cockerel and the motto "nosce te ipsum", the title-border shows seven smaller scenes at head and sides, and one large scene at the foot. The attribution of the fine woodcuts to Conrad Faber von Creuznach has been questioned by Brücker (1963). At the end, there is a letter from Rotenhan addressed to the humanist Wolfgang Fabricius Capito (or Köpfel, 1478-1541). - Title and last leaf verso slightly dust-soiled, otherwise fine. - VD 16 R 599; STC (German) 728; Adams R-276; Brunet IV, 1182; Würdtwein, Bibliotheca Moguntina, p. 153-54 (in detail).

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 e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Perotti, Niccolo (1429-1480)
Basel (Switzerland): Andream Cartandrum (ie Cratander), 1521. Hardcover. Good. With Cratander's large colophon printer's mark at end & full page border of putti at play on the second titlepage. Folio near-contemporary calf spine gilt on 5 raised bands (some minor repairs to spine and lower compartment split at lower hinge/2 leather holes repaired) LACKS leaves 1-8 (available in facsimile) including titlepage, preliminaries, & index up to "aricia" on leaf 9. Folios 9-79 + 1436 columns (ie 718pp 2 columns per page). Second titlepage at folio N1 precedes Sextus Pompeius Festus de Verborum Veterum Significatione, and Nonius Marcellius Compendiosa Doctrina ad Filium de Proprietate Sermonum. Some leaves with marginal damp mark never touching text & a few minor tears or paper faults & about 20 early paper repairs with a few obscuring text but mostly just marginal. One column has a few drops of candle wax. As expected from Cratander, the margins are wide and the nice italic type well centered but 2 pages are slightly over inked and thus have ink smudges. *An early edition of this humanist reference work printed in italic columns by the famous humanist printer Cratander when Basel was in the fore-front of such printing. These lexicographical studies on the first book of Martial's Epigrams followed by similar works by other authors were a virtual encyclopedia of Latin words. It was completed by Perotti in 1478 and first printed after his death in 1489. One commentator calls it "a massive encyclopedia of the classical world. Every verse, indeed every word of Martial's text was a hoo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alte Drucke - Cyprianus, Carthagensis, Caecilius.
Basel, Johannes Froben, November 1521, (für Cyprianus); und Strassburg, Johann Knobloch, 1522 (für Athanasius). 1521. Folio (33,5 x 22,5 cm). [12] Bll., 515 S., [16] Bll. (Index und Schlussblatt) für Cyprianus; 1 Titelbl., 5 Bl., 10 Bl. Index, CCCXIIII Bl. für Athanasius. Schweinslederband d. Zt. über Holzdeckeln, mit reicher Blindpägung (ohne die beiden Schliessen). Sammelband mit bedeutenden Ausgaben der Werke zweier Kirchenväter, schön gedruckt durch Johann Froben (1460-1527) respektive durch den aus dem aargauischen Zofingen stammenden Strassburger Drucker/Verleger Johann Knobloch (gest. 1528). Ad I) Die zweite von Erasmus von Rotterdam besorgte Gesamtausgabe der Schriften von Caecilius Cyprinaus aus Karthago. Die hier verwendete Holbeinsche Titeleinfassung (Koegler 12) ist nicht identisch mit der im Februar 1520 erschienen ersten Erasmus-Froben-Ausgabe. Verwendet wurde die mit „Verleumdung des Apelles" bezeichnete Bordüre des Ambrosius Holbein zuvor in der im Januar 1519 von Froben gedruckten Ausgabe der Sermones von Maximus Tyrius (Holbein Kat. 119 und Abb. S. 162). Sie zeigt am Kopf eine Darstellung der Herrmannschlacht; den Lastern in der Verleumdung des Apelles im unteren Teil stehen in den beiden Seitenbordüren die Tugenden gegenüber. Ob die aus vier Leisten gebildete Einfassung im nachfolgenden ersten Textblatt ebenfalls von Ambrosius Holbein stammt ist fraglich (vgl. dazu F. Hieronymus 259 und Knaake 264). Besondere Erwähnung verdienen die eindrucksvollen grösseren und kleineren Holzschnitt-Initialen verschiedener Alphabete. - Mit Marginalien in brauner Tinte vo … [Click Below for Full Description]
