        Von dem Cristlichen Weingarten, wie den die geystlichen hymel Böck, durch jre erdichte triegerey vnd menschen fünd, verwüstet und zu nicht gemacht haben, auch wie der selbig durch verkündung hailsamer Evangelischer leer, widerumb fruchtbar zumachen sey.

      [Augsburg, Heinrich Steiner, 1524].. 24 nicht numerierte Bl. Mit großem Titelholzschnitt nach Hans Sebald Beham. 4° (20 x 15 cm). Moderne Pappe mit Inkunabelpapierbezug.. Einer von drei im VD 16 belegten Drucken (daneben noch Bamberg, Erlinger - gilt als Erstausgabe - und Zwickau, Schönsperger, beide ebenfalls 1524). - Bekannte Schrift, die "einen Ehrenplatz in der Flugschriftenliteratur unseres Zeitraums beanspruchen darf" (Clemen III, 380). Stör vergleicht den desolaten Zustand der Kirche mit einem verwüsteten Weingarten und fordert, daß die Gärtner, nämlich die Priester, durch ehrbare und gottesfürchtige Männer ersetzt werden. Der Titelholzschnitt illustriert diese Aussage eindrucksvoll: Paulus und Christus stehen in einem Rebgarten, in dem drei schwarzgehörnte Böcke die Trauben abfressen. - Thomas Stör stammte vermutlich aus Dresden und studierte in Leipzig (dort 1520 immatrikuliert), im selben Jahr veröffentlichte er noch eine Schrift über den Ehestand. Heinrich Steiner war von 1522 bis zu seinem Konkurs 1547 der wohl produktivste Augsburger Drucker mit breitem Verlagsprogramm (Künast S. 11: 923 Drucke). - Leicht gebräunt, stellenweise wenig fleckig, das letzte Blatt mit zwei kleinen Ausbrüchen im weißen Rand außerhalb des Textes. Gutes Exemplar. *VD 16 S 9214. Halle, Newe Zeitungen (Katalog 70), 174. Hohenemser 3202. Kuczynski 2571. Pauli/Röttinger, Beham, 831 beta. Pegg 3741.

        TEXT FROM THE INDEX

      Northern Italy, ca, 1240. Hardcover. 406 x 254 mm (16 x 10"). Four columns, 58 lines in an excellent regular gothic book hand. Headings in red, initials in alternating red and blue, 11 two-line initials in red or blue with contrasting penwork. Page references given in Arabic numerals. Early marginal notes apparently adding references and page numbers. Recto with date 1524 written at the top and with a bold (17th century?) ownership inscription of Johannes Ludovicus. Recovered from a binding and consequently trimmed at head with loss of a couple of lines, two margins creased and recto rather soiled and faded, a couple of inconsequential tiny holes, but the very interesting leaf still generally pleasing and without fatal defects, the verso surprisingly clean and with readily legible text. This is an index leaf with alphabetically listed titles of chapters on plants, taken from a luxurious manuscript of the most important medical encyclopedia of Medieval Europe. The text is a guide to entries in book II, tractatus III, of the "Canon Medicinae" of Avicenna (Ibn Sina, 980-1037), translated into Latin by Gerard of Cremona. A compendium of Greek and Muslim medical knowledge based chiefly on Hippocrates and Galen, but with many original observations and clinical descriptions added by our author, the "Canon" had a profound influence for more than half a millennium. According to PMM, it "superseded all previous works--even the great medical encyclopaedia of Rhazes--and in its Latin translation became the authoritative book in all universities. It was still being printed in the seventeenth century . . . [and is] still in use in parts of the Arab world today." One of the central figures in the history of medicine, Avicenna also wrote widely on theology, metaphysics, astronomy, philosophy, and law; he was known to have produced more than 100 books. Medical leaves from as early as the 13th century are uncommon, and a leaf from such a special text is especially prized.

        Naturalis Historiae

      Cologne: Eucharius Cervicornus, 1524 A rare copy of the 1524 edition of Pliny's work, which was first printed in 1469, but written in AD 77-79. This is the first edition by Johannes Caesarius (1468-1550) produced as a single folio volume. This copy has been rebound probably in the early 1800's and the binding is in extremely poor condition with both boards adrift and most of the leather from the spine absent. It is lacking the title page and dedication and the final page - page 311 has some loss. It is possible to see however from the colophon on the reverse that this work is the 1524 edition. There are some small worm holes which affect the initial pages of the index - these are holes rather than tracks so there is minimal impact on the text. There is a brown stain which first appears faintly in the gutter of p292 (about 2 cm in diameter) and which then becomes larger and darker but not really intrusive until the end of the work. The remaining pages have some browning and the occasional mark but are generally in good and clean condition. The woodcut headpieces and initial capitals are of high quality. This copy has been priced to take account of condition and is an opportunity to acquire a very rare work at a much reduced price.

        The "Shahnama" of Sha Tahmasp; the Persian Book of Kings

      New York: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2011. 287p. A pristine copy with beautiful pastedown cover with design in the original slipcase in as new condition. The publication of this book commemorates the one thousandth anniversary of the Shahnama, the Persian National Epic which was written down in more than 50,000 couplets by the poet Firdausi. It also celebrates the most lavishly illustrated version of this text, a manuscript produced for the Safavid Shah Tahmasp, who ruled Iran from 1524 to 1576. One of the most beautiful and expensively produced copies of the masterpiece and issued in a small print run which became scarce upon its publication. Besides the many accolades given by art critics and museums in this country, Iran declared it the finest book produced on their heritage outside of that country.. Cloth Hard Cover. Fine/Fine Original Slipcase. Atlas Folio - over 23" - 25" tall.

        Praeclara Ferdinadi Cortesii de Nova Maris Oceani Hyspania Narratio.... [bound with:] De Rebus, et Insulis Noviter Repertis

      [Nuremberg: Fridericus Peypus]: 1524. Folio. [4],49,12 leaves. Lacks map, supplied in expert facsimile, and blank leaf leaf H8. Eighteenth century three-quarter vellum and marbled boards, gilt leather label. Bookplate of John Carter Brown on front pastedown, with deaccession stamp. Minor soiling in the text, else very good. Cortés' Second Letter: The Conquest of Mexico The first Latin edition of Cortés' second letter, after its original publication in Seville in 1522. The work was translated by Petrus Savorgnanus. This copy bears the portrait of Pope Clement VII on the verso of the fourth preliminary leaf, which is not found with all copies. Cortés' second letter, dated Oct. 30, 1520, provides a vivid account of the people he encountered and fought en route to Tenochtitlan, painting a picture of an impressive empire centered around a great city. He relates his scrape with rival Velazquez and gives a wonderful description of the buildings, institutions, and court at Tenochtitlan. It is here that Cortés provides a definitive name for the country, calling it "New Spain of the Ocean Sea." This letter is also important for making reference to Cortés' "lost" first letter, supposedly composed at Vera Cruz on July 10, 1520. Whether that letter was actually lost or suppressed by the Council of the Indies is unknown, but there is little doubt it once existed. The text is the first major announcement to the world of the discovery of major civilizations in the New World, and as such is a work of surpassing importance. As usual, the second letter is here bound with Peter Martyr's De Rebus, et Insulis Noviter Repertis..., which provides an account of the recently discovered islands of the West Indies and their inhabitants. It is often considered a substitute for the lost first Cortés letter. One of the most important early descriptions of Mexico and the first encounter of the West with the Aztec civilization, and a work of bedrock importance to the New World.

Title page upper margin cropped close not affecting woodcut border, 2 small inkstains affecting border, occasional pale marks to margins, small ink mark to 1 text page with loss of 2 letters, small stain to another, no loss of legibility, small closed tear to 1 lower margin, tiny paper flaw to 1 lower corner, light brown stain to upper edge of leaves 49-71, small light brown stain to last 3 leaves, no loss of legibility, small margin corner cut from final leaf. A very good copy of a scarce early military and firework book. The first edition was published in 1521. It was the first book to contain a section on fortification but our edition, the second, was the first to contain the 3 brief chapters on fireworks. These occupy the last 3 unnumbered leaves at the beginning and have the following headings: Per far trombe de fuoco de mirabile faccione; Per far balle de bronzo da trazere in un battagion de fanti, lequale schiopando fan grandissimo danno; Per fare fiaschi overo pignatelle di fuoco artificiato da trazere. This is probably the first printed description of military fireworks of this kind. See Chris Philip, A Bibliography of Firework Books, page 152, No. V010.1 listing the 1524 edition. A military 'pocket'-manual, covering in four books the necessary knowledge and duties of an army captain. The first two books, after some general remarks on the position of a captain, treat the fortification of cities, camps and other sites, the construction of relevant machinery, both defense and attack, and other problems of military engineering. Many of these devices are reproduced, such as battering rams, scaling machines, a helmet for use under water, some simple constructions of water clocks, & c. The third book deals with tactics and battle formations and is illustrated with many typographical diagrams. The fourth and last discusses the rules of duels and at some length the question 'qual sia maggior nobilita, le arme o le littere', whereby the author, an experienced captain himself, leaves no doubt about his preference. See: Cockle, Bibliography of Military Books up to 1642, page 197 No. 765 listing the 1524 edition: "Il Vallo (The Defence), where it concerns engineering and artillery, is taken almost entirely from the ancients. Dela Valle has no scientific knowledge whatever, and writes from experience only. But the elementary character of his work made it accessible to the rudest soldier, and it ran through eleven editions in thirty-seven years, that is to say, more than any other military book in those times."

      Bulino, 1524, 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 from Soest. This engraving comes from an old collection and were pasted in XVIII century portofolio. Bartsch 3, Pauli 3 II/II. Dim. 54x81.

        Dictionarius Graecus praeter omnes superiores accessiones, quarum nihil est omissum, ingenti vocabulorum numero locupletatus per utriusque literaturae non vulgariter peritum Iacobum Ceratinum. Ac ne libellorum quidem ac fragmentorum quae superiores adiecerant, hic quicquam desiderabis.

      Froben 1524 Tarda edizione, di pochi mesi anteriore alla seconda aldina, del fortunato vocabolario greco-latino del carmelitano piacentino Giovanni Crastoni che - pubblicato a Milano da Bonaccorso Pisano entro il 1478 e di nuovo tre volte nel XV sec. (Vicenza, Bertocchi, 1483; Venezia, Manuzio, 1497; Modena, Bertocchi, 1499-1500) - conobbe almeno sei edd. nel XVI sec., prima della presente: Ferrara, Mazzocchi, cur. Tricaelius 1510; Parigi, Gourmont, cur. Jérome Aléandre, 1512; Basilea, Valentin Curio, cur. Cratander, 1519; Parigi, Vidoue-Resch, cur. Nicolas Bérauld, 1521; Basilea, Valentin Curio (cur. e ed.); Parigi, Gourmont, cur. du Maine - Cheradamus, 1523. Ne furono tratti anche vocabolari latino-greco, ma Manuzio per la sua prima ed. preferì aggiungere un corposo indice dei lemmi latini, qui evitato per dichiarata scelta editoriale (vd. infra). La presente ed. ampliata fu fortemente voluta da Erasmo, che già nel 1518 ne scriveva a Froben (ep. 885 del 22/10/1518 in: Allen, "Opus epistolarum Des. Erasmi Roterodami") suggerendo il nome del curatore ("hic juvenis dextri videtur ingenii et utriusque lingue satis peritus: postremo Hollandus est"). Jacques Teyng, nato sulla fine del XV sec. a Horn - da cui il nome umanistico - studiò a Colonia col Caesarius, poi a Parigi con Guillaume Budé; Erasmo lo conobbe probabilmente nel 1516 o 1517 e subito gli prestò la propria amicizia, adoperandosi per procurargli una cattedra o altra sistemazione degna delle sue capacità; problemi di salute (il C. morirà nel 1530) e la tensione causata dallo scisma luterano (sarà ordinato sacerdote solo nel 1527 ed E. a lungo temette un suo passaggio alla Riforma) renderanno precaria ogni soluzione; il suo "De literarum sono libellus" in difesa della pronuncia etacista precedette di un anno l'erasmiano "De recta Latini Graecique sermonis pronunciatione", e ne è considerato superiore per livello di analisi scientifica. Per l'A. ed il presente voc. si veda: Dufrane - Isaac, "Un helléniste hollandais à Tournais. Jacques Ceratinus et son dictionnaire (1524)" in: "Ecoles et livres d'ecole en Hainaut du XVIe au XIXe siecle", Mons, 1971; anche: Bietenholz, Contemporaries of Erasmus, I, 288; Michaud, Biographie Universelle, VII, 527-8. Utili inoltre la prefazione e le note di Allen all'ep. 1460 del 1/7/1524, che altro non é se non l'introduzione di Erasmo stampata al v. del frontespizio nel presente dizionario; E. vi giustifica l'omissione dell'indice latino-greco e loda la ricchezza - quantitativa ma soprattutto qualitativa - delle aggiunte lessicali di C., ben riconoscibili perché segnalate con un asterisco nel vocabolario. Ben 62 carte a fine volume sono dedicate a dieci appendici di carattere lessicale, grammaticale e dialettologico - alcune già presenti nella prima ed. del Crastoni - attribuibili ad autori antichi o ad umanisti come il Cheradamus (ottava appendice, sulla numerazione greca). Adams, C/1279; Index Aureliensis 135.214; manca a Brunet e Graesse. Vol. in folio di cc. (260), leg. antica in p. perg. con titt. mss. al d., marca tip. al front. e all'ult. c., 42 bei capilettera xill. attribuibili ad Hans Holbein il Giovane. Leg. discretamente conservata con danni alle cuffie e, in piccola misura, ai piatti; il front., mal conservato e alquanto brunito, presenta una mancanza al marg. sup. - risarcita in antico - ad asportare il nome di Erasmo altrimenti leggibile al v. ("DES. ERASMUS ROTERODAMUS GRAECAE LITERATURAE CANDIDATIS S. D.") - ed un rinforzo all'ang. inf. est.; minimo rinforzo in eguale pos. anche alla c. successiva; cc. brunite e sostanzialmente sane, seppur in gran parte interessate da aloni di umidità e gore d'acqua variamente sensibili ma mai inficianti la lettura; piccola galleria di tarlo al marg. sup. delle cc. b1-e6, lontano dal t., e altra all'ang. sup. int. di e3-g6, questa parzialmente restaurata con strisce di carta che talora lambiscono il t.; tre minime mancanze alle cc. x2-3 ed m1 toccano alcuni caratteri, sempre senza perdita; qualche macchia, pochissime scritte e altri difetti di minore rilievo; margini soddisfacenti. Es. completo e nell'insieme discreto di opera importante e assai rara.
