NAZAREI, JUDAS, d.i. VADIAN, Joachim?).
O.O. u. Dr. (Augsburg, M. Ramminger), 1521. 4to. 30 Bl. Mit großem Titelholzschnitt. Moderner Pappband mit montiertem Titelschild. Häufig, meist unter dem Titel "Vom alten und neuen Gott, Glauben und Lehre" gedruckte reformatorische Flugschrift. Das VD 16 verzeichnet zwischen 1521 und 1532 nicht weniger als 10 hochdeutsche, 4 plattdeutsche und 1 lateinische Ausgabe. Im ersten Teil ein historischer Überblick über die Entartung der katholischen Kirche, einhergehend mit dem Machtkampf zwischen Papsttum und Kaisertum, in dessen Verlauf die Päpste sich selbst zum neuen Abgott gemacht haben. Der zweite Teil entwickelt daraus 18 Prüfsteine zur Unterscheidung zwischen wahrem und falschem Glauben. Die Gedankenführung ist auffallend selbständig. "Übrigens ist nicht zu übersehen, dass (der Verfasser) nicht gerade zu Gunsten Luthers sprach, ja ihn vielmehr einem Pharisäer gleichstellte" (Wiedemann, Gesch. d. Reformation . in Niederösterreich I, 20 f). Die Schrift "ragt hoch über das Niveau der Durchschnittsflugschriften hinaus" (Kück in Neudrucke dt. Lit. Bd 142/43, S. 88). Das VD 16 gibt keine Auflösung des Pseudonyms Judas Nazarei. Nach Weller sei ein Karmelitermönch namens Paul Elias der wahre Verfasser (Repertorium typogr. 1907). A. Mayer hält die Schrift für einen Druck der Wiener Offizin von H. Singriener. Sie "ist von Joachim Vadian (vgl. Pressel, J. Vadian, Elberfeld 1861) und eine der wenigen auf uns gekommenen Reformationsschriften, wie sie damals in Wien gedruckt wurden. Sie ist interessant und wichtig, machte auch, weil sie zugunsten der Reformation deutsch und voll Begeist … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed by Jean Marion for Simon Vincent. Hardcover. B01M1MOD8A In sixteenth century Latin script. Post-incunable 1521 edition, printed by Jean Marion for Simon Vincent (Lyon, France), 7 x 9 5/8 inches tall hardbound, early nineteenth century paper-covered boards, refreshed endpapers, illustrated with eight engravings depicting the life of Boethius and numerous historiated initials, 28 ff. (56 pages). A complete work unto itself, usually bound with the same publisher's 1521 edition of the renowned Consolation of Philosophy. Moderate to heavy soiling, rubbing and edgewear to covers, with bumping and fraying to tips and a bit of chipping along spine. Pencil notation to front pastedown. Nineteenth century prior owner name and address blind embossed stamp to top margin of refreshed front free endpaper. Mild to moderate staining and foxing, mostly marginal, to most pages, with a few apparently contemporaneous marginal notations, some truncated a bit when the copy was trimmed in a prior rebind, and a few passages underlined.

Al-Qabisi, Abu Al-Saqr Abd al-Aziz Bin Othman Bin Ali (Alchabitius).
1521. 4to. 64 ff. With several diagrams and woodcut initials in the text and the printer's full-page woodcut device on the final page, printed in red and black. Modern limp vellum with ties. "Early edition of Alchabitius' 'Introduction to the Mystery of Judgments from the Stars', with the 'modern' version by Antonius de Fantis. Sessa issued the same work at the same time, but Liechtenstein's edition is superior and especially esteemed for the fine woodcut in black and red (printer's mark) at the end" (Weil). Translated by Joannes Hispalensis (in 1144), with the commentary of Joannes de Saxonia. "Although al-Qabisi's education was primarily in geometry and astronomy, his principal surviving treatise, 'Al-madkhal ila sina'at ahkam al-nujum' ('Introduction into the Art of Astrology') in five sections [...], is on astrology. The book, as the title indicates, is an introductory exposition of some of the fundamental principles of genethlialogy; its present usefulness lies primarily in its quotations from the Sassanian Andarzghar literature and from al-Kindi, the Indians, Ptolemy, Dorotheus of Sidon, Masha'allah, Hermes Trismegistus, and Valens. Although completely lacking in originality, it was highly valued as a textbook [... The] Latin version was commented on by Joannes de Saxonia at Paris in 1331" (DSB). - Title slightly smudged; occasional waterstaining.

1521. 8vo. (8), CCCXLV (instead of 352) ff. With title woodcut and one woodcut in the text, printed in red and black throughout. Contemp. blindstamped calf over wooden boards (spine rebacked, with ms. label). A single central clasp. Rare Carthusian Breviary; probably a hitherto unknown variant printing, the collation of which agrees with that stated by Bohatta. The woodcut shows four procession scenes ("Laudate dominum in sanctis eius"). - Top spine-end damaged; slight browning, with occasional worming. Wants the final 7 ff. From the Ritter Waldauf Library in Hall with their engr. bookplate, stamp, and ms. ownership dated 1596. The Imperial Protonotary Florian Waldauf (also: Baldauf; c. 1450-1510; in 1495 countersignatory to the preliminary contract of the Habsburg-Spanish double wedding) and his wife Barbara founded a chapel, a collection of relics, and a ministry for the Hall parish church. As steward of the Waldauf endowment, the City of Hall was responsible for the donations "das alle jar etliche puecher nach anzaigen des predigers zum predigambt gekauft und in der heiligen capellen liberei an ketten gehangen und versorgt werden"; furthermore, the library was directed to acquire books from the estates of religious figures. Contrary to the Waldauf decree, the library was hardly enlarged by systematic purchases, but mainly through the incidental acquisition of books and endowments, primarily from clergymen, monasteries, and schools. The most famous previous owner was Johannes Eck. "After 400 years of existence and only occasional growth, interest in the survival of the Ri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marco DENTE detto "Marco da Ravenna" (Ravenna 1496 - Roma 1527)
1521. 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 Ges … [Click Below for Full Description]

(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.).

Testo su due colonne interamente in car. greco, grandi iniz. silogr., grande impresa tipogr. in fine. Seconda edizione (la prima era stata impressa da Aldo nel 1502), estremamente rara (Offmann: ''haec omnium fere rarssima editio''), di quest'opera, giunta a noi tramite una epitome fatta dal grammatico Ermolao; è una sorta di ''Dizionario geografico'' con i nomi dei luoghi, quelli degli abitanti, l'origine delle città, dei popoli e delle loro colonie, e riferisce proverbi, oracoli ed eventi strani e soprannaturali. Importante per il largo materiale ivi raccolto attraverso molte fonti, alcune sicuramente dirette, quali Tucidide e Strabone (ma curiosamente non Tolomeo), l'opera costituì una delle sorgenti primarie di notizie di geografia antica per gli umanisti del Rinascimento e riferimento lessicografico di estrema importanza. L'autore, grammatico del VI sec. d.C., appartiene a quella corrente di lessicografi che risale all'età ellenistica e continua poi in quella bizantina. Esempl. puro, a grandi margini, di opera veramente rara (solo 3 copie in NUC).

MACROBIUS, Ambrosius Theodosius.
Cologne: Eucharius Cervicornus, 1521. Folio, title within an ornate woodcut border; fine woodcut map of the world and several woodcut diagrams, woodcut initials; nineteenth-century continental binding of half calf, flat spine gilt in compartments. An important early edition of Macrobius, the first to be edited by Arnoldus Vesaliensis (the classicist Arnold Haldrein of Wesel). This is a handsome edition, folio in size with an illustrated title-page and with many fine woodcuts and initials throughout, including a large and further developed, version of the famous Macrobian world map. One of the very earliest world maps, this half-page woodcut depicts a world split into two - Europe and the balancing Antipodes - and surrounded by ocean at the edges. This remarkable image, which survived by manuscript transmission from the fifth century into the age of printing, had a strong and lingering effect on post-Renaissance and pre-discovery geography: as Shirley points out, reprints "continued to appear from Venetian presses throughout the next century in at least 1521, 1528, 1565 and 1574. There was also a Basle edition of 1535... Crude variants also appeared in editions of Sacrobosco's Opusculum Sphericum throughout the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, As late as 1640 the title-page of Rosaccio's Teatro del Cielo included a small rectangular map after Macrobius..." (Mapping of the World, p. 12).There is an immense literature on the Macrobian world view: Carlos Sanz (El primer mapa del mundo..., Real Sociedad Geográfica, B 455, Madrid, 1966) has studied the significance of the maps … [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).

APIANUS, Petrus (1495-1552)
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 w … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAPELLA, Galeazzo Flavio.
Ad 1: Adams C583; Machiels 96; Nijhoff-Kronenberg 518; ad 2: Machiels S 310; VD16, K1366. Contemporary accounts of two political and military power struggles, written in Latin and bound together at an early date. Ad 1: First edition of an important contemporary account of what the running heads and the titles of some later editions call the Milanese Wars (in English more often known as the Italian Wars) of 1521 to 1530, written by Galeazzo Capella (1487-1537).Ad 2: Second edition of an exciting contemporary account of the rebellious war by Maarten van Rossum in Brabant and Guelders in 1542, generally successful in spite of his failed surprise attempt to capture Antwerp, first published at Antwerp in 1542. The present account remains an important source for Van Rossum's exploits, for the author gathered much of his information from eye-witnesses to the events he relates and was sometimes even an eye-witness himself.With a contemporary owner's inscription at the foot of the first title-page ("Liber Theodori Am...smydt ab Apeld...[?]"), another erased in the space below the third line of the title, and a later owner's name "Fletcher" at the head of each title-page, probably the Scottish politician Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun (1655-1716). First title-page somewhat dirty, faint water stains in the foot of the last quire, but otherwise in good condition. From the surviving tranchefiles the book appears to have been only slightly trimmed, leaving margins of 13 to 20 mm around the text block. Binding slightly soiled, wrinkled and with a small tear.

TERTULLIAN ed. Beatus Rhenanus.
Basileae, Apud Io. Frobenium, 1521, mense Iulio, Quart. Titelblatt mit schöner Holzschnitt-Bordüre, Vorrede von Beatus Rhenanus mit wunderbarer Holzschnittbordüre, Tb., 13 Bll., 615 S., 34 Bll. schönes ganzseitiges Holzschnitt-Druckersignet auf der letzten Textseite sowie am Schluß des Bandes. Späterer Halbpergamentband mit Pergamentecken und Buntpapierüberzug auf den Buchdeckeln. Tertullian (um 160-220), erster bedeutender lateinischer Kirchenschriftsteller, der erste \"katholische Intellektuelle\". Tertullian, ein Römer, erhielt eine gründliche Ausbildung in Rhetorik und Jurisprudenz (ob er mit dem Tertullian in den Digesten identisch ist, ist bis heute umstritten). Im Jahre 193 bekannte er sich zum Christentum, wurde deren erster bedeutender Apologet, machte im Prinzip das Christentum für die intellektuelle Welt Roms akzeptabel und schrieb glänzende apologetische Werke für die Christen. Seine rigorose Einstellung führte jedoch bereits im Jahre 205 zum Austritt aus der Kirche. Schließlich wandte er sich den sog. Montanisten zu, deren bedeutendster Anhänger er in Nordafrika wurde. Auch dort gründete er bald einen neuen Flügel, den späteren Tertullianisten, die dann von Augustinus polemisch angegriffen worden sind. Die frühen christlichen Schriftsteller waren bei den Protestanten sehr beliebt, neben Tertullian besonders Origines. In ihnen wurde der christliche, nicht katholisch \"verfremdete\" Weg gesucht, an die die Protestanten nach den \"Abirrungen\" des Katholizismus wieder anknüpfen zu können glaubten. - Enger Beschnitt, auch die Bordüren betroffen.
