Jose Fernando Ramirez (editor)
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]
