        Amorini che giocano.

      - Parigi, probabile post 1525 – ante 1549. Incisione a bulino, cm 18,2 x 28,2 (l'inciso) e 18,9, 2 x 28,9 (il foglio). In lastra, in basso sulla sn., "Tappezzerie del Papa" e sulla destra il dado con la lettera B. Dalla serie delle "Tappezzerie del Papa", da un soggetto di Raffaello e edite da Antonio Lafreri, sono queste incisioni per decorazioni e ornati. Il Maestro del Dado è pittore e incisore della scuola romana di Marcantonio Raimondi, e attivo a Roma tra il 1532 e il 1550. Spesso viene confuso, a torto, con il Beatricetto o con il Bonasone. Il Le Blanc ritiene si tratti di un discendente del pittore Bernardo Daddi (1512 ca. – Roma 1570), in base all’iniziale che si legge nell’attributo figurato che sigla le sue stampe, una B segnata su un dado. Diversamente, altri lo identificano con Benedetto Verini, figlio naturale o presunto di Marcantonio, sciogliendo le iniziali BV che appaiono su alcune sue stampe, mentre, per il Bartsch, l’ultima lettera potrebbe avere il significato di Veneziano o, più recentemente (ma ancora dubitativamente), di Tommaso Vincidor da Bologna. Incisore di riproduzione di opere altrui, eseguite talvolta su richiesta di Antonio Lafrery, i suoi modelli prediletti sono Raffaello, Peruzzi, Giulio Romano e Tommaso Vincidor. Al Maestro del Dado vengono assegnate circa 85 stampe dal Malaspina, il Bartsch elenca sempre 85 sogetti, che il Passavant porta a 89. Esemplare rifilato ai margini ma con visibilela battuta della lastra, ottima impressione.

        Bellum cameracense

      [colophon: Venetiis: per Bernardinum Venetum de Vitalibus Small 8vo (15.3 cm; 6"). [188] ff.. 1525 The alliance of Louis XII, Pope Julius II, Maximilian I, and Ferdinand the Catholic in war against the Venetians was formalized in 1508, and history has given it the name of The League of Cambrai; it came to an end in 1529 with the signing of the peace of Cambrai. The neo?Latin language work offered here is a history of the origins and progress of the war as seen by a Venetian whose observations and comparisons are remarkably wide-ranging ? as evidenced by his including a passage on leaf Q8 verso concerning => battles that the Spaniards were waging on the Island of Hispaniola and elsewhere in the Indies of America. This volume, curiously, does not sport any of the expectable types of title-page that were common by its time. Instead, it simply reads: Andreae / Mocenici / P.V.D. / Bellvm / Came / racense. This bare title-page is printed in roman type, while all else is printed in a very bright, crisp italic. Several woodcut criblé initials are used in text. Provenance: Charles Spencer, Third Earl of Sunderland, lot 8534 in the Sunderland Library sale (1882); later part of the Theological Institute of Connecticut Library. Evidence of Readership: Several notes and marked passages, in ink. 18th-century mottled English calf, raised bands and modest gilt tooling, all edges speckled red; hinges (inside) partially open with spine pulled at top and some leather lost at cover corners; holding. Marked as above, some bug-spotting on title-page; two pinhole wormholes in binding extending into lower margins of early signatures; limited waterstaining, typically marginal, and a few other pages with stains or soilings. Ex-library as above: paper shelving label on spine, inking and pencilling on endpapers, embossed institutional stamps on six leaves. => A good and serviceable copy with a happy provenance.

        BELLUM CAMERACENSE.

      Per Bernardinum Venetum De Vitalibus, Impressum Venetiis 1525 - Prima edizione. Testo latino. Opera dedicata ad Andrea Gritti. Cm.15,3x10. Carte 188 non numerate. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con titoli e fregi impressi in oro al dorso. Tagli spruzzati. Alcuni capilettera ornati. L'esemplare presenta restauri cartacei d'epoca alle prime e alle ultime carte. In dettaglio, il restauro che riguarda le prime due carte consta di tre strisce cartacee ai due margini esterni ed all'inferiore al frontespizio, senza perdita di testo, e di due strisce, ai margini inferiore e esterno, al verso della prima carta e al recto e al verso della seconda, con perdita parziale del testo su cinque righe. Gli altri interventi riguardano l'angolo inferiore esterno delle ultime sette carte, senza minima perdita di testo. Si tratta comunque di restauri conservativi non invasivi, mentre il resto del volume si presenta in fresche condizioni di conservazione. (Le piccole parti di testo mancanti vengono comunque allegate in copia fotostatica). I dati editoriali si traggono, come detto, dal colophon, con l'indicazione "quinto idus Augusti". Appartenente al ramo di San Zaccaria dei Mocenigo, Andrea (Venezia, 1473-1542), allievo di Pietro Pomponazzi a Padova, ricoprì numerose importante cariche presso il Governo della Serenissima, quali senatore, elettore del Doge, Procuratore di San Marco, etc. Letterato e storiografo, compose la presente opera con l'obiettivo di narrare le vicende della guerra tra Venezia e la Lega di Cambrai tra il 1508 e il 1511, in cui egli svolse un importante ruolo diplomatico presso papa Giulio II. "L?opera, come recita il titolo, narra in sei libri le vicende della Lega di Cambrai, secondo un approccio tematico di tipo sallustiano. La scelta del tema, che aveva Venezia come protagonista, inseriva chiaramente questo testo nella produzione letteraria sviluppatasi nella Repubblica a partire dal secondo decennio del Cinquecento al fine di rappresentare il punto di vista e le ragioni veneziane nello scontro politico e militare in atto tra la Serenissima da una parte e molti Stati d?Italia e d?Europa dall?altra. Tanto più che il M., membro del patriziato e magistrato tra i più noti della Repubblica, era un esponente della classe dirigente che aveva guidato la città lagunare sino a quei drammatici avvenimenti. La narrazione, che avrebbe dovuto abbracciare gli anni 1509-17, prende le mosse in realtà ? «per fare l?historia più chiara» (La guerra di Cambrai., c. Ar1r) ? dal secolo precedente, nel quale, secondo il Mocenigo, affondavano le radici del presente disastro, in linea con la migliore storiografia coeva e successiva" (da "Dizionario Biografico Treccani"). E' considerata la principale fonte storiografica veneziana nei primi tre lustri del XVI secolo. > Adams, I, M-1518. Cicogna, 792. Italian STC, 442. Graesse, IV, 555. 250 gr.

        GEOGRAPHICAE ENARRATIONIS LIBRI OCTO BILIBALDO PIRCKEYMHERO INTERPRETE, ANNOTATIONES JOANNIS DE REGIO MONTE IN ERRORES COMMISSOS A JACOBO ANGELO IN TRANSLATIONE SUA.

      STRASSBURG JOHANNES GRÜNINGER FOR JOHANNES KOBERGER 3 APRIL 1525 - Folio (40.5 x 26.3 cm.), printed title within elaborate woodcut border, 27 double-page maps of the ancient world, 22 double-page maps of the modern world, one full-page map of Lotharingia on verso of map 46, together 50 woodcut maps, most with Latin text on versos enclosed in elaborate woodcut borders, mounted on vellum guards, woodcut diagrams in the text (one by Dürer), including one full-page of an armillary sphere. Contemporary half blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, two clasps, lacking one strap, a most handsome example. A fine example of the Fourth Strassburg edition of Ptolemy. The work includes the first printed map in an edition of Ptolemy to name America, the first printed map of Southeast Asia, and the first printed map of China. The list of contributors is a veritable 'who's who' of German Renaissance publishing: the text was translated by Wilibald Pirckheimer, using the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps under the editorship of Johann Huttich; the ornamental woodblock designs on the reverse of the maps are attributed to Albrecht Duerer, who also contributed the woodblock of the armillary sphere. The present edition was printed for Johann Koberger by Johann Grüninger, using the woodblocks of the first Grüninger edition of 1522. The woodcut maps in the trapezoid shape developed by the German cartographer Nicolaus Germanus in 1460 comprise 27 maps according to Ptolemy as well as 23 "modern" maps (Tabula Moderna) according to the knowledge of the time. The "modern section" was copied by Lorenz Fries, on a reduced format, from the maps prepared by Waldseemüller for the 1513 Strasbourg Ptolemy, and accordingly contains the new maps of North America and the West Indies, Lorraine, Switzerland, Crete, North Africa, Southern Africa, Southern Asia and the World. To that group Fries added three maps: South East Asia and the East Indies, China and Japan and a navigational map of the World. The two former are the first separate printed maps of the regions they depict. The 50 woodcut maps, with the exception of Quinta Asie Tabula are from the same blocks as those of 1522 edition. Map 47 is single page on verso of map 46. Map 50, Orbis typus universalis by Laurentius Fries, is the first map in a Ptolemy in which the name America is used. The account of the discoveries of Columbus and others is on the back of Map 28. The dedication by Bilibaldus Pirckeymherus, dated at Norenberge. Kalendis septembris. Anno Salutis nostre. M.D.XXIV., begins on the verso of the title and ends on the verso of folio 2. Index Ptolemaei (with half-title within illustrated border): [68] p. at end. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        REQUETE ET QUIETAN de Robert de Villemoyne et Pierre de Neumant de 202 livres 10 sous tournois du IXme octobre 1541. DOCUMENT ORIGNAL SIGNE.

      Velin in-8 oblong (20cm sur 46,5cm) rédigé en langue française d'une belle graphie ancienne avec ses abréviations d'usage, portant une grande signature du Roi François 1er et, sous la mention "pour le Roi", celle du Chevalier Bayard. Traces de pliures anciennes, 4 petits trous en marge, texte bien complet, encre d'une grande fraîcheur. TRES BEL EXEMPLAIRE. Ce document était destiné au Receveur Général des Finances Jehan La Guette, à qui le Roi ordonne: "nous voulons et mandons (...) payez, bayez et delivrez à nos chers et bien aimés écuyers de notre cuisine de commun Robert Villamoyne et Pierre de Neumant la somme de (...) 202 livres 10 sous tournois (...) en faveur des bons et agréables services qu'ils nous ont cy-devant faicts (...) donné à Saint Trivié le 4e jour d'octobre de l'an de grâce mil cinq cens quarante et ung de notre règne le vingt septieme". D'après nos recherches (Archives de Tours cote AD37/3E8 et Archives Nationales), un Robert Villamoyne était déjà écuyer de cuisine en 1525, un autre serait décédé à Tours en 1610. On trouve un François Villamoyne "saucier en la cuisine des communs" au XVIIIe siècle. Nous n'avons malheureusement pas pu découvrir d'informations au sujet de Pierre de Neumant. Aujourd'hui, deux villages des environs de Bourg-en-Bresse s'appellent Saint-Triviers-de-Courtes et Saint-Triviers-sur-Moignons.

Trio magique pour cette édition révisée par Erasme l'humaniste et superbement imprimée pour la première fois par Froben en 1525. 1525 médecine. Provenance d'un grand professeur de médecine en ophtalmologie Ferdinand Monoyer.

Petite restauration ancienne au titre bien visible sur la photo. Frottements et rayures aux plats papiers. Un cachet gratté de provenance princière, Ex libris manuscrit Monoyer, provient de la bibliothèque de Ferdinand Monoyer célèbre spécialiste en ophtalmologie a qui l'on doit l'echelle de contrôle de vision éponyme (photo ci dessous) et le sytême de la dioptrie. Histoire naturelle de Pline au XVIe Bibliothèque médic@ extrait de la présentation : (...) Au cours du XVIe siècle, l'intérêt pour le texte de Pline ne s'est pas démenti. La première édition remarquable est sans contexte celle que donna le médecin Alessandro Benedetti. Edition d'un médecin pour un texte si sensible aux choses médicales, l'édition vénitienne de 1507 est probablement, comme le souligne justement Giovanna Ferrari, un travail mené antérieurement aux premières années du XVIe siècle. Elle montre aussi que cette édition est la première à disposer d'un index des substances médicamenteuses. La préface rédigée par Alessandro Benedetti met en évidence les progrès décisifs d'Ermolao Barbaro pour la philologie plinienne et aussi les points sur lesquels les corrections de Barbaro sont probablement fausses et dissimulent des corruptions du texte dues, comme on pouvait s'y attendre parce qu'il s'agit d'un topos de la littérature philologique de la Renaissance, à l'incurie des copistes médiévaux. Dans les années suivantes, de nombreuses autres éditions parurent, dans toute l'Europe et sous toutes les plumes. Sans qu'il soit question ici d'en faire un catalogue détaillé, il faut cependant signaler l'édition procurée par Erasme, en 1525. Imprimée à Bâle, chez Froben, elle est inséparable du travail que menait au même moment l'humaniste rhénan Beatus Rhenanus. Même si la preuve n'en a pas été totalement administré, il semble que les deux philologues se soient retrouvés sur ce chantier commun. Dans les années qui précèdent, Rhenanus avait mis la main sur un manuscrit de l'Histoire Naturelle à l'abbaye de Murbach, en Alsace. Il publia l'essentiel des leçons remarquables de ce manuscrit un an après la sortie de l'édition d'Erasme, toujours chez Froben, à Bâle. (...) L'édition d'Erasme connut une belle postérité. Reprise dès 1535, avec des ajouts et des corrections dûs au philologue Sigismundus Gelenius, elle fut réimprimée à Bâle à plusieurs reprises, de 1539 à 1545 Il s'était installé à Bâle en 1524 et avait rencontré Erasme chez l'imprimeur Froben où il remplissait les doubles fonctions d'éditeurs et de correcteur d'épreuves. Ces éditions forment ce qu'on peut appeler la vulgate plinienne de la seconde moitié du XVIe siècle. L'étude de C. Nauert dans le Catalogus translationum et commentariorum donne une bonne idée de l'importance de ce groupe d'éditions et de leur diffusion dans l'Europe entière.(...)

        De Tralatione Bibliae, et novarum reprobatione interpretationum

      Paris, Pierre Vidou 1525 - Sutor, Petrus (Cousturier, Pierre). De Tralatione Bibliae, et novarum reprobatione interpretationum. Vaenundantur Parisiis apud Joannem Parvum Bibliopolam adscribtitium, sub insigni floris Lilii, via ad divum Iacobum, Cum Privilegio. Paris, Pierre Vidou for Jean Petit , 1525. 4to. [4] + 101 + [1]f. Roman letter. 25 large ornamental criblé initials, each serving for 3 preliminary and 22 chapter openings. Title within fine architectural woodcut border including royal arms and the arms of the city of Paris in top panel, surrounding Jean Petit’s large ornamental bookseller’s device incorporating a tree and a shield with his initials and a lily, supported by 2 lions. Contemporary limp vellum with title inscribed on backstrip in ink calligraphy. First edition of a fanatical condemnation of vernacular Bible reading by the Sorbonne theologian and Carthusian monk, Pierre Cousturier (c1474-1537), who fiercely opposed the leading humanist reformers’ idea of furthering lay people’s understanding of the Holy Scriptures through translation. The author believed the concept to be misguided and radical, arguing it could lead to error and heresy; he thought a knowledge of languages unnecessary and strongly advocated the retention of the Vulgate. Title verso with privilege dated 5th December 1524. The publication of this book resulted in an acrimonious correspondence in the same year between the author and Desiderius Erasmus (c1466-1536) who vainly attempted to reason with him (cf: P.G.Bietenholz & T.B.Deutscher: Contemporaries of Erasmus (Toronto 1985) p352. The book was reprinted in 1528. This copy contains a 17 line contemporary manuscript entry in a fine humanist hand in margin of the first page of text commenting on the author’s controversy with Erasmus; an entry in the same hand on the title states that friar Antonius de Villa Corta is allowed to take the book home with him; there are 2 other notes in the same hand on ff9 & 48, and 10 earlier manuscript notes in other blank margins. A previous owner added his initials A and P discreetly on the title and replaced the lily in Petit’s arms in tailend margin with an the letter A in ink. Adams S2126; B.Moreau, Inventaire, III, 803; for bookseller’s title device, cf: Renouard 891.

Three years after the first edition (1522) Gruninger printed a second edition, for the Nuremberg publisher Johann Koberger. - Apparently faced with criticism of the text in the First Edition, Gruninger employed Wilibald Pirckheimer to edit it, which he did from the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps under the overall editorship of Johann Huttich. - The text on the verso of the map is flanked by ornamental woodblock, which have been attributed - probably wrongly - to Albrecht Durer, who contributed the woodcut of the armillary sphere found just before the section of maps. - Pirckheimer seems to have been unhappy with the finished volume, encouraging Gruninger to burn the entire print run. - It would seem plausible that the 1525 edition also did not sell well, and nothing further is heard of the blocks until they re-emerge in the possession of the Lyons brothers, Gaspar and Melchior Trechsel, who printed the two subsequent editions (mapforum).

Spine worn with slight chipping to head and tail, hinges cracked on most of their length but holding firmly, upper corners slightly worn, title is lettered faintly on the fore-edges, title page slightly dusty, 2 large chips to 1 fore-edge margin, 1 just affecting a 1 word sidenote, 3 small old paper repairs to 1 fore-edge margin, small stain to 1 margin, occasional small pale damp stains to margins, leaves 224-233 have large pale damp stains over much of the text, but absolutely no loss of legibility, contents otherwise bright and clean, binding tight and firm. Lyndwood's Provinciale "is a collection of the most important ecclesiastical legislation enacted within the province of Canterbury between the Council of Oxford in 1222 and Chichele's archiepiscopate (reign ended 1443). The completed Provinciale was accompanied by a comprehensive subject matter index and, more importantly, by his own extensive marginal gloss. In the fashion of the European "ius commune" the gloss clarified the meaning of the constitutions, related them to the general law of the church, raised legal points of doubt and controversy, and commented upon their observance in the English spiritual courts" ODNB. The text was edited by Josse Badius and the index was compiled by him. William Lyndwood (c. 1375-1446) was bishop of St. David's in 1442. He finished writing his Provinciale in 1433 and it was first printed in Oxford by Thomas Rood in 1483. STC 17111; Adams, Books Printed in Europe 1501-1600, L2117.

        GEOGRAPHICAE ENARRATIONIS LIBRI OCTO BILIBALDO PIRCKEYMHERO INTERPRETE, ANNOTATIONES JOANNIS DE REGIO MONTE IN ERRORES COMMISSOS A JACOBO ANGELO IN TRANSLATIONE SUA.

      STRASSBURG JOHANNES GRÜNINGER FOR JOHANNES KOBERGER 3 APRIL 1525 - Folio (40.5 x 26.3 cm.), printed title within elaborate woodcut border, 27 double-page maps of the ancient world, 22 double-page maps of the modern world, one full-page map of Lotharingia on verso of map 46, together 50 woodcut maps, most with Latin text on versos enclosed in elaborate woodcut borders, mounted on vellum guards, woodcut diagrams in the text (one by Dürer), including one full-page of an armillary sphere. Contemporary half blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, two clasps, lacking one strap, a most handsome example. A fine example of the Fourth Strassburg edition of Ptolemy. The work includes the first printed map in an edition of Ptolemy to name America, the first printed map of Southeast Asia, and the first printed map of China. The list of contributors is a veritable 'who's who' of German Renaissance publishing: the text was translated by Wilibald Pirckheimer, using the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps under the editorship of Johann Huttich; the ornamental woodblock designs on the reverse of the maps are attributed to Albrecht Duerer, who also contributed the woodblock of the armillary sphere. The present edition was printed for Johann Koberger by Johann Grüninger, using the woodblocks of the first Grüninger edition of 1522. The woodcut maps in the trapezoid shape developed by the German cartographer Nicolaus Germanus in 1460 comprise 27 maps according to Ptolemy as well as 23 "modern" maps (Tabula Moderna) according to the knowledge of the time. The "modern section" was copied by Lorenz Fries, on a reduced format, from the maps prepared by Waldseemüller for the 1513 Strasbourg Ptolemy, and accordingly contains the new maps of North America and the West Indies, Lorraine, Switzerland, Crete, North Africa, Southern Africa, Southern Asia and the World. To that group Fries added three maps: South East Asia and the East Indies, China and Japan and a navigational map of the World. The two former are the first separate printed maps of the regions they depict. The 50 woodcut maps, with the exception of Quinta Asie Tabula are from the same blocks as those of 1522 edition. Map 47 is single page on verso of map 46. Map 50, Orbis typus universalis by Laurentius Fries, is the first map in a Ptolemy in which the name America is used. The account of the discoveries of Columbus and others is on the back of Map 28. The dedication by Bilibaldus Pirckeymherus, dated at Norenberge. Kalendis septembris. Anno Salutis nostre. M.D.XXIV., begins on the verso of the title and ends on the verso of folio 2. Index Ptolemaei (with half-title within illustrated border): [68] p. at end. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Griech.) Odysseia. Batrachomnomachia, Hymnoi

      (Strasbourg, W. Köpfel) 1525. Einer von zwei Teilen (der andere Teil enthält die &#132;Ilias"). - 8°. 251, (61) Bll. Mit Druckermarke in Titelumrahmung (s. Heitz Tafel XVI, Nr. 3, allerdings mit der Bordüre zur &#132;Ilias") und einer größeren Druckermarke Bl. I 8 verso (Heitz Tafel XIX, Nr. 12), alles ankoloriert. Blindgepr. Schweinsleder d. Zt. über Holzdeckeln (nachgedunkelt, etwas berieben) mit Resten eines Rückenschildchens und zwei Schließen. Der erste Teil enthält die literarischen Texte, die 61 letzten Blätter eine Lebensbeschreibung Homers aus der Feder Herodots. Erste Ausgabe in der Herausgabe Lonicers; Melanchthon gewidmet. Der Autor, der am Beginn abendländischer Kultur steht, hat im Laufe der Jahrhunderte die unterschiedlichsten Interpretationsansätze erfahren; gerade in den letzten Jahrzehnten hat die klassische Philologie immer konturierter das Bild von Homer als einem Dichter herausgearbeitet, der mündlich tradierte Epik (&#132;Oral Poetry") aufnahm und diese Einzelteile zu einem Ganzen formte; dazu - so nimmt man an - bedurfte es der Schriftlichkeit, und so steht Homer am Beginn einer auf schriftlicher Fixierung aufbauender Literatur. Eine seiner Leistungen liegt damit in der Ausformung und Zusammenbindung ursprünglich vereinzelter Teile. Er setzt die Einzelepisoden &#132;zueinander und zum Ganzen in Bezug, ordnet und gewichtet die Szenen und schafft dadurch aus den Einzelheiten, wie es griechischem Geist entspricht, ein einheitliches Ganzes . Dazu kommt ein Zweites. Homers Gestalten sind keine Marionetten, die sich weidlich als tüchtige Haudegen herumschlagen, sondern erfahren eine menschliche Vertiefung, die sie zum Prototyp einer neuen Menschlichkeit werden lässt" (L. Voit im Nachwort zur Artemis-Ausgabe). &#132;Seit dem 6. Jh v. Chr. zu Schulbüchern geworden, durch Rhapsodenvorträge überall im griechischen Sprachraum verbreitet, von vielen Gebildeten auswendig gelernt, sind Ilias und Odyssee von unabsehbarem Einfluss auf die griechische Sprache, Literatur und bildende Kunst gewesen, sie wurden prägendes Beispiel der griechischen Vergangenheit und Bildner des griechischen Selbstbewusstseins." (KNLL 8, 23). Es ist nicht übertrieben zu sagen, dass Homer neben den Olympischen Spielen zu den wichtigsten Elementen eines gesamthellenischen Bewusstseins einer in Stadtstaaten organisierten griechischen Welt gehört. Die &#132;Odyssee" erzählt die letzten 40 Tage der Heimkehr des Troja-Kämpfers Odysseus nach Ithaka zu Penelope, seiner Frau. Wird im ersten Teil, der Fahrt nach Ithaka, die äußere Heimkehr auf einer abenteuerlichen Reise beschrieben, so geht es im zweiten Teil um die innere Heimkehr: die Überwindung der Entfremdung Penelope &#150; Odysseus nach 20 Jahren Trennung. Damit verknüpft ist das Motiv der Suche nach dem Vater des Sohnes Telemachos (s. DNP 5. Sp. 694 ff.). Vorderer Spiegel mit einer farbigen Wappenzeichnung und mit zahlreichen kleinen Papierausbrüchen, vorderer Vorsatz lose und recto mit handschr. Eintragungen von verschiedenen Händen, z. T alte Besitzvermerke. Hinterer Vorsatz fehlt (ist irgendwann herausgetrennt worden), hinterer Spiegel zur Hälfte mit alten Notizen bedeckt.

        Lay Breviary (Franciscan use); decorated Renaissance manuscript on paper with six inserted woodcuts

      DECORATED RENAISSANCE MANUSCRIPT IN LATIN AND DUTCH ON PAPER, Southern Low Countries (Louvain?), c. 1525-1550. 146 x 103 mm. 299 folios, complete (collation, i-ii8 iii9 [with additional leaf added after 8] iv6 v10 vi-ix8 x7 [of 8, lacking 1] xi8 xii7 [of 8, lacking 8] xiii-xiv8 xv7 [of 8, lacking 8?] xvi7 [of 8, lacking 8?] xvii-xxiv8 xxv10 xxvi-xxvii8 xxxviii2 [of 4, lacking 3 and 4] xxix-xxxviii8 xxxix3 [of 4, lacking 4]), remnants of four different series of signatures, written in Gothic hybrida by four hands in 17-27 long lines (justification, 105-110 x 65-70 mm.), ff. 1-40 ruled in pale brown ink for the boundary lines only, rubrics in red, majuscules in text stroked in red, many one-line red initials, several two- to four-line initials in red and blue, six inserted woodcuts, soem corrections written on pasted-in paper strips. BINDING: Seventeenth-century vellum over pasteboard, with single fillets along the edges, flat spine. TEXT: This unusually para-liturgical, bilingual manuscript offers the Psalms, hymns, and canticles of the Breviary with a verse-by-verse Dutch translation of the Latin and, as such, may be considered an abridged Lay Breviary; some textual components commonly found in a Breviary, such as a calendar, are absent in this manuscript, but in essence it gives the texts needed for the Divine Office during the liturgical year. The Dutch translation accompanying the Latin text reflects a tendency to worship in the vernacular, which, in the Low Countries, had started with the religious movement called Devotio Moderna, led by Geert Grote (1340-1384), who himself translated many offices from the Latin for inclusion in Dutch-language Books of Hours. The manuscript?'s bilingualism gives it three possible functions: it may have been used in collective workship during the Divine Office, for private devotion, and as a kind of exercise book for understanding Latin. ff. 1-22v, Hymns from the Temporale; ff. 22v-34v, Hymns for the feasts of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi; ff. 34v-37, Prayer to the Virgin, Praise of St. Anne, Prayer when observing Lent; ff. 37-53v, Hymns from the Temporale; ff. 55-216v, Psalms, hymns, and canticles for the liturgical year; ff. 217-253, Psalms for several unspecified feasts; ff. 253-256, Psalms for Maundy Thursday; ff. 256-273v, Psalms and canticle from the Office of the Dead; ff. 273v-283v, Hymns from the Proprium Sanctorum; ff. 283v-291v, Hymns from the Commune Sanctorum; ff. 291v-294v, Hymns for the Dedication of a Church; ff. 295-299, Hymns for the feast of the Holy Name of Jesus; f. 299v, Musical notation for the first lines of three hymns: O salutaris hostia, Defensor noster aspice, and an unidentified one. ILLUSTRATION: Two larger woodcuts: f. 58, David in Prayer (uncolored); Crowning with Thorns (colored in); four smaller circular engravings, all colored in: f. 153, the Carrying of the Cross; f. 160v, the Crucifixion; f. 167v, the Pietà; f. 199, the Entombment. PROVENANCE: Internal evidence indicates that this manuscript was made for the use of a Franciscan convent, possibly the convent of Annunciates in Louvain, where the manuscript was in the early seventeenth century. In the use of Sara de Licht, a nun who had the book on loan from the convent where she lived, the convent of Annunciates in Louvain; indicated by inscription on f. 1. Belonged to Aernout van Ghelmer, from Ardoole, in West Flanders, Belgium, as indicated by a modern pencil ownership entry on the front pastedown. Then follows the name of Xaveer Koelman, from Diksmuide, also in West Flanders. CONDITION: Binding loose, first leaf loose, holes in last leaf, last page rubbed, several lower corners strengthened, some of the pasted-in engravings rubbed, some minor soiling, but in reasonable condition overall. Full description and photographs available (TM 614).

        Octoginta Volumina. nunc tandem per M. Fabium Calvum Rhavennatem. Latinitate donata. ac nunc primum in lucem aedita.

      [colophon:] Rome, Marco Falvio Calvo, 1525 - Folio (300 x 209 mm), pp [lxxxiv] 733 [recte 732] [2, without terminal blank], title within ornamental woodcut border; top of title woodcut border slightly cropped in binding, some occasional ink spots or other staining, otherwise a very good copy in eighteenth-century vellum. £27,500First collected edition. 'This is the first complete Latin edition of the works of the greatest of clinical physicians. What is now known as the "Hippocratic collection" is a large corpus of works - the number varies between fifty-nine and a hundred - which was probably in existence in Alexandria by about 300 B.C. The present edition contains eighty works ?'Hippocrates first established an empirical system of medicine based on a combination of bedside experience and a collation of the many individual data which then formed the basis of clinical teaching. The clinical descriptions of fevers, phthisis, puerperal convulsions, epilepsy and other disorders have remained classics and no such records were kept again for over a thousand years.'The treatise on the surgery includes treatment of dislocations and fractures, trephining the skull, descriptions of surgical instruments, rules on public health and diagnosis, a famous work on the brain, on the theory of the four humours, and many others. Laennec specifically acknowledges his debt to the Hippocratic writings in relation to the invention of the stethoscope. The most celebrated section of all is probably the "Aphorisms".'The ideal of the humane and learned physician originates with Hippocrates, and the "Hippocratic Oath" still remains the classic expression of the duties, ethics and moral standards of the medical profession' (PMM).This edition publishes the Latin translation from the Greek made by Marco Fabio Calvo, who had prepared his own Greek manuscript in 1512 by collating a fourteenth manuscript in his possession with a twelfth-century codex which remains one of the oldest and most important Hippocratic manuscripts. Both these manuscripts, along with Calvo's rescension, survive in the Vatican Library. The Greek text published in 1526 by Aldus utilised another version of the Hippocratic texts.Provenance: extensive early pencil markings in black and red, and some occasional ink annotations, possibly editorial markings for a later editionAdams H567; Celli 628; Garrison pp 92-101; this is the first of his six most important editions of Hippocrates; Grolier Medicine 1A; Heirs of Hippocrates 10; Norman 1076; PMM 55; Stillwell 406 and 657; Waller 4459; Wellcome 3177

        Bellum Cameracense.

      Venice, Bernardino dei Vitali, 1525. - Woodcut initials. Italic type throughout, except for title page and headings. (188 ll.). 8°, nineteenth-century marbled boards (spine and corners worn), burgundy leather lettering piece (slightly chipped), gilt letter. Very occasional light foxing. Small light dampstain in outer margins of 20 leaves. Internally very good to fine; overall in good to very good condition. A few contemporary or early manuscript ink annotations. Small, neat, old ink Jesuit college ownership inscription in upper outer corner of title page. ---- FIRST EDITION, with a reference to Hispaniola on leaf q8v, as well as a reference to the Portuguese in India under King Manuel I, which begins on q8v and continues on to leaf r1r. This work is the most important contemporary source for the history of Venetian territory in the period 1509-1516. The @Bellum Cameracense is a history of the Italian wars of 1508 to 1516, in which shifting alliances fought for control of Northern Italy. The League of the Cambrai, 1508-10, was an alliance initially formed by Pope Julius II, together with Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, King Louis XII of France, King Ferdinand II of Aragón, and several Italian city-states against the republic of Venice, with the aim of checking Venice's territorial expansion. The Republic was soon on the verge of ruin. Its army was defeated by the French at Agnadello (1509); most of the territories it had occupied were lost; and Maximilian entered Venetia. The Republic had to make concessions to the pope and to Ferdinand. The Republic emerged from the war having suffered serious losses, but by no means crushed. The League of the Cambrai gave way to the Holy League against the French. This was an alliance formed (1510?11) by Pope Julius II during the Italian Wars for the purpose of expelling Louis XII of France from Italy, thereby consolidating papal power. Venice, the Swiss cantons, Ferdinand II of Aragón, Henry VIII of England, and Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I were the chief members of the league. The Swiss, who did most of the fighting, routed the French at Novara (1513), but in the same year Julius II died and the league fell apart. The French victory (1515) at Marignano reestablished the French in Lombardy.The work is dedicated to Andrea Gritti who had led a force of Venetians as @proveditor and later served as commander of the Venetian forces. An Italian translation appeared in 1544.---- Adams M1518. Alden & Landis 525/11. BM @Pre 1601 Italian STC, p. 442.

(Zusatzinformation BVB) - Wikipedia schreibt: "In Basel wirkte seit 1518/22 Johannes Oekolampad für die Sache der Reformation. Hier lebte und wirkte seit 1514 auch der europaweit bekannte Humanist Erasmus von Rotterdam. Obwohl Basel also ein Zentrum des Humanismus und der Frühreformation war, konnte sich in der Bischofsstadt angesichts der viel direkteren Kontrolle des Bischofs die Kirchenkritik anfänglich nicht so klar durchsetzen wie in Zürich. Nach Kontakten mit Zwingli, Luther und dem elsässischen Reformator Martin Bucer schloss sich Oekolampad in der Abendmahlsfrage der Position Zwinglis an. In der Berner Disputation 1528 stritt er an der Seite Zwinglis. In Basel wurde die Reformation jedoch anders als in Zürich und Bern nicht auf Betreiben der Stadtregierung, sondern durch eine eigentliche Revolution der Stadtbevölkerung und der Zünfte durchgesetzt. 1528 erreichten die Zünfte die Glaubensfreiheit für die Reformierten. Am 8. Februar 1529 brachen nach der Fasnacht Unruhen aus und ein gewaltsamer Bildersturm fegte über die Stadt. Die in Zünften organisierten Handwerker zwangen den Rat schliesslich zur Einführung der Reformation. Der katholisch gesinnte Bürgermeister und seine Anhänger sowie das Domkapitel mussten aus der Stadt fliehen.

        Des Circkels und Richtscheyts, auch der Perspectiva und Proportion der Menscher.

      Title in red and black. With printer's device (Heitz, Frankfurter und Mainzer Drucker und Verleger Zeichen, 90), 3 folding woodcut plates, and 107 woodcut text illustrations. Early vellum, new endpapers; title remargined, occasional soiling and some browning to extremities, otherwise a nice copy with sharp impression to the plates. Preserved in a clamshell box. First edition of this rare treatise on perspective and draughtsmanship, important for its use by artists, architects, and goldsmiths. The woodcuts are all the author's original work, though he was clearly influenced by Leonardo and Dürer. The text begins with elements of linear geometry, and moves towards more detailed presentations of two - dimensional figures and the construction of stereometrical bodies. The third part, on human proportion, owes much to Dürer's Vier Bucher von Menschlicher Proportion (1525); this section also includes woodcuts illustrating the proper proportions of a horse. Lautensack's discussion of perspective is accompanied by illustrations of basic geometrical forms, ending with a fine folding plate depicting the Emperor's Hall in the Römer, Frankfurt's city hall and the site of the coronation of the Holy Roman Emperors. An early imprint from the famous Feyerabend publishing dynasty, the author's preface indicates that the printing of this work began on July 26, 1563. Lautensack (1522 - 68), an artist, goldsmith, and woodblock - cutter, lived in Frankfurt am Main. He was influenced by his father, Paul, and by his brother, Hans Sebald Beham, both skilled painters and engravers. This book is extremely scarce; few copies have survived the constant use by the artists who utilized this work for their profession.

        [Opera omnia.] Octoginta volumina

      Rome: in the shop of Francisco Minutius Calvo,, 1525. Folio (281 x 207 mm). Modern vellum to style, retaining old edges with title lettered in manuscript to lower edge. Woodcut title page border, Roman, italic and gothic types, table of contents in double columns, index in three columns, printed shoulder notes, large woodcut initials. A very good copy, clean and tall, with the head of the woodcut title page, which is usually found trimmed, entirely unshaved. First edition of the first complete Latin edition of the works of the best known physician of the ancient world. The collection consists of more than seventy books on medicine, of which the Aphorisms and the Airs, Waters and Places are among the most important: the section on epidemics is of great interest as are the clinical descriptions such as pneumonia, malaria and mumps. Descriptions of the ancient instruments are an interesting part of the surgical writings. Hippocrates proscribed a code of medical ethics for his disciples, summarised in the traditional Hippocratic Oath still administered today to physicians on qualification. Marcus Fabio Calvo of Ravenna, a friend of Raphael, prepared a complete Latin translation of the Hippocratic corpus, collating and writing out his own manuscript of the Greek text, depending mainly on a 14th century manuscript, but also consulting a 12th century codex that is one of the oldest and most important Hippocratic manuscripts. The source manuscripts and Calvo's Greek text and Latin translation are preserved in the Vatican Library. These texts form the so-called Hippocratic Corpus, a group of medical texts mostly written in the late 5th and early 4th centuries BCE. These cannot all have been written by one author, as in some cases they are mutually contradictory. After Hippocrates, Galen of Pergamum (c. 129?-216) was the most influential of the ancient physicians. He wrote many books on various medical treatises, among them a number of commentaries on works in the Hippocratic Corpus, including the Aphorisms. After 400 CE, the study and practice of medicine in the Western Roman Empire went into deep decline; most of the writings of Galen and Hippocrates were lost to the West. In the Islamic world, however, these writings were preserved in Arabic translation. The most prominent translator was Hunayn ibn Ishaq (d. c.873). Hunayn ended up translating Galen's whole commentary on the Hippocratic Aphorisms, and so by this route both the Hippocratic text and the Galenic explanations became available in Arabic. As soon as Arabic-speaking physicians had access to the Aphorisms, they began to write commentaries about them. For instance, Abu Bakr Muhammad Zakariya' al-Razi (d. c.925) wrote a substantial commentary that only survives in fragments today. During the 12th and 13th centuries, there was a true proliferation of Arabic commentaries on the Hippocratic Aphorisms. The aphorisms founded a new genre in Arabic medical literature. A number of physicians wrote aphorisms of their own: two famous examples include Abu Bakr al-Razi, who penned a Book of Aphorisms (Kitab al-Fusul), also called The Guide (al-Murshid); and Musa ibn 'Ubayd Allah (Maimonides) authored his own Book of Aphorisms (Kitab al-Fusul), in addition to writing a commentary. The Aphorisms show how Arabic-speaking authors of the medieval period critically engaged with the Greek heritage in Arabic translation. Generation after generation of physicians adapted, adopted, abridged, explained and engaged with the Aphorisms in Arabic. Today, more than a dozen Arabic commentaries on them survive in more than 100 medieval and early modern manuscripts. These rich sources contain many insights that could help us better understand how medicine developed from 10th to the 16th centuries.

        Summula, Raymundi, septem sacramenta ecclesiastica ingeniose complectens, commentariisaac suuculentis glossis scientifici viri magistri Joannis Chappuis explanata atque enucleata

      8vo. Paris: Franciscus Regnault, 1525. 8vo, (10), 230 ff. Title page in red and black, with printer?s device of elephant. Original calf (backstrip restored) blind-stamped with the arms of Henry VIII on the upper cover and the Tudor rose on the lower cover. Two preliminary leaves with lower corners torn away with loss of text; leaves at front and back loose and detaching. Heavily annotated in a few early hands. In folding box with ?Royal Copy? in gilt on backstrip. A canon law treatise by Raymond of Penyafort (circa 1175 - January 6 1275 ), a Spanish Dominican who is the patron Saint of lawyers. An early and very rare edition, of especial interest for its English provenance and annotations in early English hands. De Hamel has called this book ?a typical parish priest?s textbook.? It is signed i.a. by ?William Hogges? and it is probably he who has added folk medicines and herbal remedies at front and back (?medsyn for wartz? e.g.) as well as proverbs in English and Latin one of which includes a very early reference to Robin Hood. A long description by an earlier dealer gets almost everything wrong but identifies the binding as probably by Garrett Godfrey (see Nixon, Five Centuries, p. 28) which might be so. WorldCat locates one copy only world-wide.

Roman type, with several fine woodcut initial capitals. 1 vols. Folio.

Sewing loosening, with several gatherings sprung. Some minor scattered worming in margins, dampstaining to last 11 leaves. Owners' inscriptions on title. In half morocco slipcase and chemise. The Origins of Canon Law: the "Collectio Dionysiana" Schoeffer, 1525 A rare and beautiful printing by the son of the celebrated Peter Schoeffer of Mainz. Johann Schoeffer (c. 1468-1531) continued and expanded his father's business, and his extensive list includes works by Erasmus and other humanists, as well as liturgical works and editiones principes of Latin classics (it was in the preface to his edition of Livy of 1523 that Schoeffer attributed the invention of printing to Gutenburg in Mainz in 1450). The present work is of the utmost importance in the history of Canon Law, being the first printing of the famous collection of Dionysus Exiguus, the 6th-century monk whose translations into Latin of the ancient canons of the Church down to the Council of Carthage (419) , along with his his compilation of Papal Decrees (known together as the "Collectio Dionysiana") marked the beginnings of Canon Law.
