Savonarola, Girolamo.
[colophon: Venetiis: per Francisum de Bindonis, 21 April 1524]. Small square 8vo (14 cm; 5.5"). 98 [i.e., 96] ff. Savonarola's detailed instructions for confessors are here newly edited by the philologist Lucas Olchinensis Panaetius (fl. 1518) and dedicated to Antonio Contarini (d. 1524), a patriarch of Venice. First published coincident with Savonarola's death, this manual was reprinted at least 42 times in the next 200 years and was so popular that the Pope in 1581 contributed a preface! Specifically addressed to young priests, it reviews various sins, describes the qualities of a good confessor, guides the reader through interrogation techniques, and assigns appropriate penances, thereby bearing => singular, significant witness to Savonarola's effective work as a conventional priest, not a radical public reformer loudly auguring the Apocalypse. The Rudimentary References of Elias de Ferrariis (d. 1348), another tool for novice priests, is appended starting on p. 45.    A famous woodcut of Savonarola seated to the left of a desk in his cell, writing, beneath a crucifix and a window without bars, introduces an edition of his text that is neatly printed in Gothic type with two large, ten-line criblé woodcut initials beginning the major sections.    Marks of readership: Sparse underlining, a couple annotations, and manicules, all in early ink.         Adams S469; CNCE 23210; Sander 6767; Essling 1465; Giovannozzi no. 27; D.

La prima di tre tirature di questa importante edizione che, per l'aggiunta di diversi studi e commentari di vari astronomi (alcuni pubblicati per la prima volta), è molto più ampia delle precedenti composte per lo più da 50 - 70 carte (prima edizione: 1524). Ortroy, Apian, 59. Adams A - 1286. DSB I, pp. 178 - 179: «Apian was a pioneer in astronomical and geographical instrumentation... (his) first major work, Cosmographia, was based on Ptolomy. Starting with the distinction between cosmography, geography, and chorography, and using an ingenious and simple diagram, the book defines terrestrial grids; describes the use of maps and simple surveying; defines weather and climate; and provides thumbnail sketches of the continents. In its later form, as modified by Gemma Frisius, the Cosmographia was one of the most popular texts of the time...» The first of three issues of this greatly enlarged edition (earlier editions have about 50 - 70 leaves only): "Clement pronounces this t … [Click Below for Full Description]

1524. <p>Lucas van Leyden (1494-1533). The surgeon and the peasant. Engraving, 116 75 mm., matted. Signed within the plate with Lucas's initial "L" and dated 1524. 2 or 3 very small and unobtrusive repairs. Very good impression. </p> <p>Lucas's famous engraving of a typical barber-surgeon at work. "It has been suggested that this engraving is a subtle indictment of the barber-surgeon. He is shown wearing elegant attire, whereas his patient is portrayed as a poor country bumpkin. In the artistic language of the day the large, heavy purse below the surgeon's right arm signalled an undue preoccupation with money" (Rutkow, Surgery: An Illustrated History, p. 121).

[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.

"Schon das Titelblatt sagt den Kampf an, indem es den Karsthans drohen läßt 'Die Papisten tun hoch pochen. Von Christo wirt es als gerochen' ... Die Schrift selbst liest im Eingang den Edlen und Vornehmen des Voigtlands den Text, daß bei ihnen noch wenig oder gar keine Besserung, sondern mehr Ärgernis, Zwietracht und Unruhe in den Gewissen gemerkt werde ... Zuletzt wettert der Verfasser gegen den Mißbrauch, dessen sich die Papisten mit dem Pfaffenscheffel schuldig machten ... In der Schlußermahnung werden die Voigtländer nochmals aufgefordert, so zu handeln, daß sie sich vor dem rechten Herren verantworten können, und das tapfer mit christlichem und deutschem Herzen anzugreifen..."

C Plinii Secundi [Pliny the Elder]
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.

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

Iacobus Ceratinus (Ceratino, Jacob Teyng), Giovanni Crastoni, Erasmus Roterodamus (Erasmo da Rotterdam)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
