HESYCHIUS.
(Hagenoae : In aedibus Thomae Anshelmi Badensis, 1521).. Folio. 776 columns p. Modern h.cloth. 31 cm (Ref: VD16 H 3184; Hoffmann 2,261: Wiederholung der Aldine; Ebert 9638: 'A corrected reprint of the Aldine' of 1514; Brunet 3,146) (Details: Initial and blank spaces with guide letters for initials; only the first initial has a woodcut capital; the Greek text is printed in 2 columns; the edges of the book block are marbled) (Condition: 20th century restored binding; the back has recently been replaced by black cloth, and the remains of the leather back have been pasted on the black spine; both covers have marbled paper; the covers are worn at the extremes. The first 7 leaves are slightly spotted in the outer margin. This book unfortunately lacks the first leaf with the title on the recto, and with the accompanying short praefatio of Aldus on the verso, and it lacks also the last leaf with the printer's device; nevertheless, the text of the Lexicon is complete, and in excellent condition, from the introduction at the beginning to the 'telos', the end. Occasional old ink annotations in the margins) (Note: The lexicographer Hesychius Alexandrinus compiled his lexicon in the 5th or 6th century A.D. The work offers numerous fragments which enable the reconstruction of corrupt passages in the texts of classical authors. Its worth for classical scholarship lies also in the abundance of data on Greek dialects, and the history of the Greek language. This is the third edition after the editio princeps of Aldus of 1514. The lexicon was edited by Marcus Musurus at the request of Aldus M … [Click Below for Full Description]

VENTALLOL, Joan.
[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.

Venice: Bernardino Vitale, 9 November 1521. 4to (199 x 140 mm). Collation: [a]4 b6. [10] leaves. Three-line title in large caps on a1r, colophon on b6v. Roman types. 26 lines. Hinges of first and last leaves reinforced, marginal browning; removed from a Sammelband and rebound in modern buckram-backed boards. *** Only edition, the only published work by an otherwise unknown author, containing a neo-Latin poem in dactylic hexameters celebrating the accession of Antonio Grimani to the Dogeship (on 6 July 1521). Another poem, "to the little book," occupies the last three pages. In hendecasyllables, it is helpfully titled "Hend. ad Libellum," and opens "Committas medicas, gravante morbo / Langor quos teneat, maligna febris..." A short prefatory poem on the writing and printing of the work is addressed to Bartolomeo Comino (1468-1544), secretary of the Council of Ten, the leading body of the Venetian government, charged with assuring the Rebublic's security. The notorious secretiveness of the Council's deliberations is alluded to in its heading, "Ad Bartholomaeum Cominum á secretis". No copies in American libraries.

[Rhegius, Urbanus].
[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.

Schwalb, Hans.
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 / Un … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hans Sebald BEHAM Nuremberg 1500 - Frankfurt 1550
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Apianus, Petrus:
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 t … [Click Below for Full Description]

( 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.

REGINO PRUMIENSIS ( - ADALBERT):
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]

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.

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.).

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).
