Authentic very rare Aldine, part four of Tito Livio "Ex XIIII T. Livii Decadibus. Prima, Tertia, Quarta, in qua praeter fragmenta III, & X libri, quae in Germania nuper reperta [...]" (it starts from sheet 69 because bibliographically it is a part of the 4th volume of Manutius's Tito Livio) and it is very rare to find it by itself with its own title page (see last photo with the chronological series of the Aldines).

(Book of Hours)
Paris: Gilles Hardouyn pour Germain Hardouyn, [1521?]. [97] (of 104) leaves, printed on vellum, 23 lines, black letter, initials in gold on blue or red grounds, text pages within a variety of historiated and ornamental borders, and with 16 large and 13 small metal cuts FULLY ILLUMINATED IN GOLD AND COLORS BY A CONTEMPORARY HAND. 8vo. Printed on Vellum, with 16 Large Miniatures. Fine example of illumination on vellum in an early binding, from the atelier of the Hardouins, who, along with the Parisian printers Kerver and Simon Vostre, made the printing and illumination of vellum Books of Hours one of their specialties. Books of Hours were traditionally used at home rather than at church and such was demand that "from the mid-thirteenth to the mid-sixteenth century, more Books of Hours were produced, both by hand and by the press, than any other type of book" (Wieck, p7). It's often noted that Books of Hours finally placed access to God in the hands of the public. With the new technology of moveable type, the ability to satisfy demand increased dramatically and, though still expensive, they were now in reach of a far larger section of the public. Joseph Cundall explains the printing process: "[T]here is no doubt that the famous illustrations of the Missal, or 'Book of Hours,' issued in Paris between 1490 and 1520, were engraved on metal of some kind, perhaps on copper or some amalgam of tin and copper... It will be noticed that the groundwork of many borders in the French books is filled with little white dots, criblé it was called; these dots are, in the first place, to imita … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERNARD OF GORDON.
Sixth edition (the first five are all incunables) of the Practica or Lilium medicinae, the principal work of one of the medical luminaries of the Middle Ages, Bernard of Gordon (c.1258-1318) of Scottish descent but born in France, a professor at Montpellier from 1283 to 1307. He spent his entire teaching career at Montpellier and contributed greatly to the university's fame as the outstanding medical school in Europe. He completed the Lilium in 1305. In the Dark Ages (476-1000), European medicine was entirely in the hands of the Jewish and Arabian physicians when the founding of the medical school at Salerno in the eleventh century began to breathe new life into medicine. The Lilium preserves the Arabic tradition, but also contains much original material, and is one of the works which laid the foundations of medical literature in the fourteenth century, from the schools of Montpellier, Paris, Bologna and Padua. It contains, inter alia, the first description of a modern truss, the first mention of spectacles (oculus berellinus), and the suggestion that muscles move due to a mechanical action of the nerves. Modern studies have been made of Bernard's treatises on epilepsy, marasmus, smallpox, and urology. The Lilium was translated in the Middle Ages into French, German, Hebrew, Irish, French and Spanish, but never into English, although Bernard is mentioned in the prologue to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Demaitre says of Bernard (p. 169): "It would be difficult to find a more worthy representatives of Montpellier's claim to fame, of the academic tradition, and of the medical … [Click Below for Full Description]

Roman type, a few words in Greek, text with commentary surround. Privileges from Pope Leo X and Francois I on verso of title, errata and editors' note at end (Z8r). 117 woodcuts (including one small repeated cut), of which 10 full-page, printer's large woodcut swan device on title, smaller device on Z7v, large historiated and foliated white-on-black woodcut initials, small foliated initials.

First edition in Italian and first edition in any modern language of one of the finest illustrated books of the Italian Renaissance. ?This handbook on classical architecture is the only Roman work inspired by Greek architecture that has come down to us. It is therefore important as our prime source of many lost Greek writings on the subject and as a guide to archeological research in Italy and Greece. By exemplifying the principles of classical architecture it became the fundamental architectural textbook for centuries. Vitruvius, who lived during the time of Julius Caesar and Augustus, and probably composed his book prior to 27 BC, was basically a theoretical rather than a practising architect and his only known work is the Basilica at Fano. .

Silvestro Mazzolini da Prierio. [With Foreward and Afterword by Martin Luther]
Valentin Curio, Basel, 1521. Quarto, 180 x 140 x 2 mm. A-B4,C6; [14] ff. Modern plain wrappers of thick 18th-century paper; some wear to extremities. Interior: Sound. Luther attacks the primacy of the Pope, being his refutation Prierias's 1519 "De juridica et irrefragabili veritate Romanae" that had been used in the trail against Luther. It is not without interest that Curio has employed a historiated woodcut initial ["P"] depicting a scene of two children inflicting WATERBOARDING torture on a baby strapped into a rocking cradle. Prierias's work is here published in its entirety by the Swiss supporter of the nascent Reformation, Valentin Curio. It is noteworthy that Curio adds Luther's own "Letter to the Reader," a remarkable argument against the claims that follow, namely that the Pope was the infallible judge of all controversies, the head of all that is spiritual and secular, the head of the Church, and ultimately of the whole universe. Not surprisingly, Luther rails against such "blasphemy." "Now he had to proclaim the state of emergency. In his response to Prierias, published in June, 1520 'for the information of all Christians,' he warned of the god-awful consequences that would arise from Rome's suppression of the Gospel. His every word vibrates with fear and trembling before this gaping threat of the final perversion of all order and virtue. No later Protestant will ever be able to imagine the full intensity of Luther's anguish: 'So farewell, ill-fated, doomed, blasphemous Rome; the wrath of God has come over you.'" (SOURCE: H.A.

ZANGAKI, Georgios and Constantinos.
Cf. Encyclopedia of nineteenth-century photography, p. 1521; Erdem, Views of Egypt by Georgios and Constantinos Zangaki (thesis, Toronto 2006). A rare and large album with 48 photographs by the renowned Zangaki brothers, whose background and history remain in the shadows. They were probably from the Greek island Milos and worked as commercial photographers in Egypt from ca. 1870. The brothers were quite prolific, producing at least 1500 photographs, mostly for Western tourists, drawn to Egypt and the Middle East in increasing numbers since the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. The photographs in the present album were most likely taken during an excursion to the Holy Land in ca. 1880. The album features landscapes and city views, including famous sights such as Jaffa Gate (Bab el-Khalil), Tower of David, the Armenian monastery, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Church of the Flagellation, Al-Aqsa Mosque, Mosque of Omar, Gethsemane, Mount Olive and the Wailing Wall.The photographs with some loss of contrast, otherwise in good condition. The tissue guards and the album's leaves spotted. The binding in very good condition, with the head and foot of the spine slightly damaged and the edges and corners scuffed, and the wood with a few cracks. A fine album of photographs of Palestine.

HESYCHIUS Alexandrinus
Anshelm Thomas, 1521. in-folio, ff. (1 per il tit.), colonne 776, ff. (1 per il colophon e la grande impresa tipogr.), leg. del tempo in p. pelle screziata con tracce di filetto oro sui piatti, dorso a nervi abilmente rifatto con tit. e fregi oro. Terza edizione (la seconda è dei Giunta 1520) di questa classica opera che segue filologicamente la prima stampata nel 1514 da Aldo, del quale è riportata al verso del titolo la lettera-dedicatoria, in car. romano, al nobiluomo e letterato mantovano Gian Giacomo Bardellone, che gli aveva procurato il manoscritto. Il testo, completamente in carattere greco, impresso su due colonne numerate in basso con cifre arabe, è curato dal cretese Marco Musuro, che si servì del manoscritto del Bardellone, unico conservato (oggi nella Bibl. Marciana di Venzia). Di quest'edizione si hanno esemplari con la variante del titolo su undici linee e la dedica al verso in car. italico (cfr. Adams H-508). L'opera di Esichio di Alessandria (vissuto probabilmente nel V sec. d.C.) è il più ampio dei lessici greci che l'antichità ci abbia tramandato ed è ''prezioso per le citazioni di antichi autori e per le numerose glosse dialettali'' (cfr. Encicl. Treccani XIV, p. 326). Bell'esempl. (con lievi ingialliture della carta qua e là ed ex-libris ms. sul tit.).

Marco DENTE detto "Marco da Ravenna" (Ravenna 1496 - Roma 1527)
Bulino, 1521-23 circa, da un soggetto attribuito a Giulio Romano. Esemplare nel primo stato di tre o secondo di quattro, con l'indirizzo di Antonio Salamanca e la data 1541. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "Balestra nel cerchio con giglio" (Briquet 760, carta databile alla prima metà del XVI secolo), rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione raffigura l'incontro tra Annibale e Scipione, prima della battaglia di Zama, durante la seconda Guerra Punica, svoltasi nel 202 a.C., secondo la narrazione fornita da Tito Livio (Storie, XXX 29 e 30. 1-2). Sulle due sponde del fiume, personificato da una divinità incoronata, in basso a sinistra, sono: sulla destra, Scipione, accompagnato da due portabandiera e due ragazzi; sulla sinistra, Annibale, con la sua armata, gli elefanti e la cavalleria. Il soggetto corrisponde alla dodicesima scena degli arazzi del ciclo Gesta di Scipione. La serie completa di arazzi legata alla figura di Scipione è formata da due serie distinte: 13 rappresentazioni delle Gesta di Scipione hanno per fonte letteraria Tito Livio, e i Trionfi di Scipione - di 9 scene - basata sulla descrizione dello storico Appiano. La serie fu commissionata da Francesco I di Francia nel luglio del 1532, all'imprenditore Marc Crétif, di Bruxelles. Completata nel 1535, la serie fu distrutta nel 1797 per ordine del direttore della Garde_Meuble, Vilette, perché aveva bisogno dell'oro degli arazzi per pagare i suoi dipendenti. I cartoni dei Trionfi furono realizzati da Giulio Romano, mentre quelli della Gesta erano t … [Click Below for Full Description]

This listing is for a rare sold out copy of The Authentic Red Dragon (Le Véritable Dragon Rouge) with The Black Hen (La Poule Noire) translated from the French Edition of 1521. Limited to 800 hand numbered copies. Book is over all very good/unread condition. Le Véritable Dragon Rouge, or as it is more commonly known, Le Dragon Rouge (The Red Dragon) is one of the most notorious of the little books of black magic known as grimoires. This Teitan Press publication includes a complete facsimile of the earliest known edition - a French printing that is dated 1521 (although it was probably actually published in the early 1800s) - along with a complete English translation by Joshua A. Wentworth. It is prefaced with a thoughtful and sometimes humorous Introduction by Silens Manus. The text of Le Dragon Rouge is typical of grimoires of the time, and is clearly related to the Grand Grimoire. Its anonymous author claims that the work is derived from the wisdom of the legendary King Solomon, and then sets down instructions for the creation of a number of magical implements: blasting rod (wand), talisman and magic circle, that are to be used to summon the demon "Lucifugé Rofocale," who is then bound over to serve the sorcerer. In the process a great many sub-demons are named, and their attributes listed. This is followed by a series of magic spells or recipes for various purposes; from making oneself invisible, to winning the affections of another, to the cure of various common ailments. The book ends with a chart of lucky and unlucky days and a short version of the treasure-finding tex … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schwalb, Hans.
Nürnberg Johann Stuchs Format: 4° [8] nn S Fadengeheftet ohne Einband. 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 g … [Click Below for Full Description]

Erasmus, Desiderius
[Johann Weißenburger], [Landshut], 1521. Early edition. Papered spine. (8) p. (the last two blank). An early and scarce German edition of Erasmus' diatribe on church music. The text is a translation of an excerpt from the Annotations and circulated widely among followers of Luther and Zwingli. The treatise comments on 1 Corinthians 14:19 "Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue" (KJV). Through these words, Erasmus attacks music and chanting in the church, particularly the music practices and performances of the English Church, and advocates more preaching instead. The text was translated into German in 1521 and published by a number of printers in the same year in Nürnberg, Mainz, Augsburg, Leipzig, Basel, Erfurt, Wroclaw and in Landshut, the present edition. Scarce, USTC locates only 5 copies worldwide. Ref.: VD 16 E 3127; USTC 662286; Hirsch, IV. no. 226. Bibl.: Kim, Hyun-Ah: Humanism and the Reform of Sacred Music in Early Modern England. [.].

Just remarkable for a country that still arrests, fines, imprisons and exiles people for sharing the gospel. The who's who of Belarus came. The minister of culture said it was the cultural event of the year. The academy of science came as a group for a visit and lecture and afterwards the president of the AS said if this is true about the Bible then we need to read it and study it. Visitors were asked to write a verse from the Psalms on a long scroll. One visitor one verse. There was always a long line for people to do this. As people wrote the Psalms many times made the comment "the verse is speaking to me." These are people, who in many cases were reading the Bible for the first time in their lives. We didn't want to leave but alas we are soon traveling to St. Petersburg, Russia for a similar exhibition. Thanks for praying!

Martin Luther
This is a scarce, well-loved copy of Martin Luther's Kirchen Postilla in four(?) books its original leather covered wood binding. This book has had numerous owners over the past 500 years since its printing who have all contributed to home made repairs and inscriptions. The book contains many original 16th century woodcut illustrations and beautiful drop caps throughout. All of the torn/repaired pages filled with handwritten corrections and notes and stories has turned this book into a piece of art. The book measures about 14" by 9" by 5" and weighs about 9 pounds. It's covers are being held together by tape and several pages are loose. However, most pages are still bound together. There are numerous stains and tiny holes and tears (as well as larger tears). For the most part all of the previous owners have gone to great lengths to fix any damage they may have caused. It is printed by Hans Lufft (Luther's go-to printer for his bible and other texts). I cannot read German, so I have struggled to determine the exact contents of the book. Many of the previous owners have commented on the date "1521" and the date appears printed at the end of one of the first few pages (as pictured). I believe that there may be an incomplete book from 1521 that exists in only a few pages in the first part of the binding. There are also three additional Kirchen Postilla books with the dates 1544, 1584, and 1584 again. The last 1584 book appears to be missing many pages and rather abruptly ends (I have included an image of the very end of the entire book). It is quite amazing to go through the bo … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALCHABITUS / Abu Al-Saqr ‘Abd Al-‘AzizIbn Uthman AL-QABISI.
Melchior Sessa & Petrus de Ravanis, Venice, 8 June, 1521. 64 leaves (127 pp), Latin text, printed in gothic type throughout, Sessa’s woodcut device on title (cat with mouse), woodcut diagrams, large ornamental initials, tables, contemporary parchment-covered boards, new spine & endpaper, remnants of clasps, another title with which this work was originally bound was likely removed, cover soiled, light damp stain at top corner of few leaves, scattered foxing, otherwise copy in general good condition. Al-Qabisi (died 967), was a famous Arab astrologer in the circle of Sayf al-Dawla, the ruler of Aleppo. This edition of the Al-madkhal ila Sina'at Ahkam al-Nujum ( Introduction to the Art of Judgments of the Stars) contains De planetarum coniunctionibus, a work which was once attributed to Alchabitius, translated into Latin by Joannes Hispalensis, and commented on by Joannes de Saxonia. However, this is probably not section four and five of the Madkhal as previously thought, since it does not seem to have been known to the two chief Arabic sources on al-Qabisi's life, al-Bayhaqi and Hajji Khalifa. This possibly spurious text was only previously published by Ratdolt in 1485. This work was dedicated to the Emir of Aleppo, Prince Sayf al-Dawla, and survives in at least twenty-five Arabic manuscripts, and over two hundred manuscripts of its Latin translation, with twelve printed editions of the Latin work between 1473 and 1521 (this edition). The Arabic text has received at least three Latin translations, which attracted several commentaries and were, in turn, translated into other … [Click Below for Full Description]

Graesse III, 266. Benzing Bibl. Haguenovienne 85. Cet important dictionnaire grec parut pour la première fois en 1514, chez les Alde, à Venise, le texte ayant été établi d'après un manuscrit prêté par Giacomo Bardellone, noble de Mantoue. Cette édition, la troisième, est le premier ouvrage grec imprimé dans la ville alsacienne d'Haguenau, près de Strasbourg. Elle reprend celle des Alde, à deux colonnes (numérotées ici 1 à 776). Ce dictionnaire grec est le seul ouvrage qui nous soit parvenu du grammairien et lexicographe grec, Hesychius ou Hésychios d'Alexandrie qui vécut vers le Ve ou VIe siècle de notre ère. L'ouvrage contient une multitude de renseignements précieux pour l'histoire et la philologie ancienne, dont des expressions et passages de livres aujourd'hui perdus. "On y trouve les expressions les moins usitées qui se rencontraient dans les poètes, les orateurs, les philosophes, les médecins et les historiens; celles qui étaient particulières à quelques peuples, comme les Crétois, les Lacons...; les termes usités dans les sacrifices, les divinations, la gymnastique, etc.; enfin tous ceux qui sortent de l'usage ordinaire de la langue (...). Malgré des défauts, ce lexique est très important..." (Ho … [Click Below for Full Description]

[CARPENTARIUS (Alexander)].
Paris, Gilles de Gourmont, s.d. [au colophon] : novembre 1521. In-folio, 251 feuillets dont une belle page de titre avec le marque typographique de Gilles de Gourmont et le collophon au dernier. Maroquin brun à gros grain estampé à froid, bordure à décor de palmettes, décor à compartiments avec fers de formes variées, petites armoiries au centre, dos orné, roulette intérieure, tranches dorées sur marbrure (Girard relieur à Angers). Les petites armoiries au centre des plats sont celles de la famille Du Plessis Villoutreys. TRÈS RARE ÉDITION de ce traité sur les vices de la société, dénonçant particulièrement les abus et les excès de lÉglise. « Ces dialogues, qui ont été fort goûtés au moyen âge, sont des espèces d'apologues en prose, offrant chacun un sens moral » (Brunet). L'ouvrage a également été édité sous le titre de Dialogus creaturarum. Fort populaire en son temps, le Destructiorum viciorum fut composé en 1429 par Alexander Carpenter, écrivain anglais qui vécut au XVe siècle et dont on sait peu de choses aujourdhui. Cest le seul texte connu de ce lettré et pas moins de six éditions se sont succédées entre 1480 et 1521. Les neuf premiers chapitres traitent de la gourmandise, ce qui vaut à louvrage dêtre cité par Simon, Bibliotheca bacchica, n°113. Édition partagée entre quatre libraires parisiens comme lindique le colophon, cest-à-dire Jacques Ferrebouc, Jean Petit, Gilles de Gourmont et François Regnault, très élégamment typographiée en lettres gothiques, à deux colonnes, et ornée de nombreuses lettrines à fond criblé décorées de fleurs et d'oiseaux. Exemplaire très b … [Click Below for Full Description]
