        POLYCRONICON [translated by John de Trevisa]

      Southwark: Peter Treveris at ye expences of John Reynes, 1527, the 16th day of May. VERY RARE. THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF THE POLYCRONICON and only the third issuance of the book after the Caxton printing of 1482 and the Wynken de Worde printing of 1495. With the exception of the woodcut of the musical notation on n5r, which first appeared in the printing of 1495 (and was the earliest printed musical notation in an English book), ALL THE WOODCUT ILLUSTRATIONS APPEAR HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME. Double column, black letter, zylographic title printed in red between two parts of a large woodcut block printed in red and black (Hodnett 2489, state 2), the upper portion featuring the royal arms, a portrait of Henry VIII, and the arms of London, the larger lower portion showing St. George, this block repeated in its undivided state on the verso of colophon, full page woodcut of a battle on z6v, 9 smaller woodcuts in the text (six blocks, some repeated), woodcut musical notation on n5r, many 10-line and smaller woodcut initials. John Reynes? printer?s mark, colophon with hunting scenes. Folio (271x 191 mm), bound in correct 16th century style in full calf, the boards paneled in blind, the spine with tall raised bands blind ruled, compartments with central blind tool device but one which is gilt lettered, a.e.g. Fo. CCCxlvi. (aa8, bb-hh6, a-y8, z6, A-S8, T6, U, X8) A very handsome and complete copy of this rare and highly desirable book, interesting and early manuscript notations in two hands, one of which documented as 16th century, censor markings to Catholic references, particularly references to the Pope now faded and the print beneath now legible, faint and occasional evidence of old damp, some other minor occasional staining, a few minor paper repairs in margins or corners, not effecting text. RARE AND IMPORTANT. Only the third printing of one of the most important pieces of early English historical prose. Higden's POLYCRONICON, a world history from the Creation to 1360 A.D., was translated by Trevisa at the command of Thomas, Earl of Berkeley (d. 1361). The work draws on over 40 sources, and synthesizes a continuous diachronic and multicultural history, beginning with the Biblical account of the Creation and moving through the history of the Semitic, Hellenic, Roman, and medieval-European cultures. It served as a model for innumerable later histories, both universal and localized. The POLYCRONICON was Caxton's most ambitious printing project. It is his longest book in terms of page count, and the second-longest in terms of word count (after the GOLDEN LEGEND of 20 November 1483). It is also Caxton's most ambitious work as an editor and a writer; for Caxton significantly revised the extant English translation of the POLYCRONICON, updating its terminology considerably; and he also authored an original history of England to serve as Book 8 of the text--a writing effort which stands as Caxton's greatest achievement as an author. This printing is only the third, after Caxton?s original in 1482, it is considered one of the best examples of Treveris' ability as a printer.

        ARGENTINA, URUGUAY and PARAGUAY: Plata Americae Provincia.

      - This important and engaging map is the first to focus on the Río de la Plata region, printed in the first atlas dedicated to the Americas. The map embraces most of Paraguay, northern Argentina, Uruguay and the adjacent parts of Brazil. Visually is it focused on the broad Río de la Plata estuary and the courses of the "El grand rio de Parana’ (Paraná River) and the ‘Rio Lepiti’ (Uruguay River). While far from precisely accurate, the map provides a basic overall degree of verisimilitude to reality that makes it relatable to the modern viewer. The mapping was based on the observations of Spanish explorers, some of who ventured to the area in search of the ‘Ciudad de los Césares’ (City of the Caesars), a mythical metropolis of vast riches that allegedly exited in the interior. Not too far above the location of the modern Buenos Aires region is ‘S. Espirito’ (Santo or Espíritu Santo), at the confluence of the Carcarana and Paraná rivers, a short-lived settlement founded by Sebastian Cabot that existed between 1527 and 1529. The map features the ‘Rio de Buenas Arres’, although the city of Buenos Aires is not included, as it was founded in 1536, but abandoned in 1542. While reestablished in 1580, it was a minor settlement that did not yet warrant much attention. ‘Assumption’ (Asunción, Paraguay), founded in 1542, is erroneously shown to be on the ‘Rio Lepiti’ (Uruguay River), and not near the confluence of the Paraguay and Paraná, rivers, as is the case. It was by for the most important Spanish base in the region at the time and the centre of what was becoming a flourishing Jesuit-run inland empire of missions and estates. Cornelis van Wytfliet (1555-1597) was the Secretary of the General Council of the Province of Brabant in the Spanish Netherlands. The present map is from his Descriptionis Ptolemaicae Augmentum (Louvain: J. Bogard, 1597), which was the very first atlas focusing entirely on the New World. The work was intended to be an "Augmentum", or addition/corollary to Claudius Ptolemy’s Geography, which only included maps relating to the parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. Wytfliet’s atlas, printed in the Spanish Netherlands and dedicated to King Philip II, contained 19 maps, including a world map and 18 regional maps of the Americas.

        A View at Delhi, near the Mausoleum of Humaioon

      published by Thomas Daniell, London - Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand. Image size: 17 7/8 x 23 3/4; 21 1/8 x 29 1/8 inches. The mausoleum of Humayun is one of the great Mughal monuments The plain around the Mausoleum of Humayun, now within the modern city of New Delhi, was covered when this building was erected with the remains of tombs, forts, mosques and palaces from the earlier dynasties of the Delhi Sultanate (1193-1527). The tomb of Humayun (reg. 1530-40, 1555-56), the second Mughal emperor, and father of Akbar, was built by his wife after his death from 1565 - 1572. It represents the first example of the Mughal garden-tomb complex, a monumental symmetrical composition set in a walled garden enclosure, meant to adumbrate Paradise as described in the Koran. The gate on the extreme left in this aquatint is the principal entrance to the mausoleum. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated works on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

        Eyn wunderliche Weyssagung von dem Babstumb

      1527. PROPHECY AND PROPAGANDA SACHS, Hans and Andreas OSIANDER. Eyn wunderliche Weyssagung von dem Babstumb/ wie es yhm biss an das endt der welt gehen sol/in figuren oder gemael begriffen/gefunden zu Nuermberg/ym Cartheuser Closter/ und ist seher alt. 18 leaves (A-C4 D2 E4). Illustrated with 30 woodcuts by Erhard Schön, and cut by the formschneider Hieronymus Andrea. Each woodcut is fully and elegantly coloured by a contemporary South-German artisan. 4to., 199 x 144 mm, bound in nineteenth-century English brown morocco, covers with gilt-tooled intersecting bands of repeated quatrefoil design within double borders; armorial supra-libros on front and cipher on back of John Eliot Hodgkin. Nuremberg: Hans Guldemundt, 1527. |~||~||~||~||~| Extremely Rare First Edition. Both graphically and textually incendiary, this work provided a beacon in the Protestant "war of words" at the beginning phase of the Reformation. "It was an opening salvo in the anti-papal and anti-Catholic propaganda campaign waged by Nuremberg's Lutherans" (Smith, Nuremberg, A Renaissance City, p. 167). Eyn wunderliche Weyssagung von dem Babstumb ("A Wonderful Prophecy of the Papacy") represents a collaboration of several of the leading reformist figures in Nuremberg at the time; its publication was intended to provoke a sensation. And that it did. Andreas Osiander (1498-1552), preeminent theologian of Nuremberg and radical Rector of the church of St. Lorenz, oversaw the production of a corrected edition of the Vulgate Bible, 1522, and played a leading role at the First Diet of Nuremberg, also in 1522. He was later to achieve distinction as overseer of the publication of Copernicus. Osiander was at the heart of religious fervor in Nuremberg, the first German city to adopt Lutheranism. Eyn wunderliche Weyssagung is remarkable on several counts. First, the active involvement of the Meistersinger cobbler-poet Hans Sachs (1494-1576), who contributed paired rhyming couplets to each section, plus a lengthy concluding poem, brought a literary cachet and immediacy to the work. Each quatrain provides an abstract of Osiander's text, which references local history, church and imperial history, bestiary lore, Scripture citation, allegory, and eschatological drama. Hans Sachs' intention was clear: the papacy had become a gross parody of what it should be. Although Osiander's glosses steer the argument, even Osiander conceded that the power of the work was propelled by the woodcut images. The woodcuts are attributed on stylistic grounds to Erhard Schön (1491-1542). "Scholars have attributed some 1200 illustrations for 116 books and about two hundred separate woodcuts to Erhard Schön, making him one of the era's most prolific woodblock designers… He studied Albrecht Dürer's prints while living in the artist's house for several years… When Nuremberg--and Schön--adopted Lutheranism in the mid-1520s, Schön began designing woodcuts for anti-Catholic books and broadsheets. He designed broadsheets that spoofed current events and human nature and illustrated satirical poems by a Nuremberg poet. Much like modern editorial cartoons, these compositions were intended to amuse, outrage, or enlighten the public" (Getty.edu). Schön's woodcuts mark a departure in the illustration of the Pope Prophecies, which, as Haffner points out, had a long tradition in the genre of "visual prophecy." The woodcuts, though based on those of Joachim of Fiore, are more animated and instilled with new Reformation imagery. Of further significance, the publication inverted the Gregorian dictum of 'pictures are the Bible for the illiterate,' for, as Osiander states in the preface, the learned will be able to interpret these woodcut images directly, whereas explanations for the common man can be discovered in his text. A young Martin Luther dressed in his Augustinian black cassock is depicted on C4 verso, holding a sickle in one hand and a red rose in the other, standing beside a severed leg. Luther wrote to Osiander on 19 May 1527 in a letter which expressed his approval of the image and accompanying text. To be sure, the "common man" is at the core of the controversy surrounding this pamphlet. Eyn wunderliche Weyssagung would have circulated through inns and taverns, would have been posted in public places, and would have been read aloud in groups throughout Nuremberg. Hans Sachs' poems functioned as mnemonic devices, his pithy turn of phrase would have been hard to disregard. Thus, number nine "The Pope is in league with Satan, he is ruled through his prompting and whoever contradicts his teachings he is hunted and killed by him." Or number fourteen "Then God threatens him through his Word. The papal seat, which will be destroyed, as Paul clearly gives evidence, God will kill him through his mouth" (Haffner translations). Sachs reinforces the oral nature of the work with his ringing conclusion (from the Gospel of Matthew, 11 v 15) "Darumb wer oren hab der hoeer" (He that hath ears to hear, let him hear). Eyn wunderliche Weyssagung "immediately angered the Nuremberg city council, which was trying to mend its relationship with Emperor Charles V following its decision to break away from the Roman Catholic Church. On March 27, 1527 the city council ordered the confiscation of all copies of the book, (as well as the original woodblocks for Schön's illustrations) and Osiander was forbidden to publish any further works without the council's permission. The reprimand extended to Sachs and the publisher Guldenmundt, but interestingly no mention is made of Schön" (Smith, Nuremberg, A Renaissance City, p. 167). On March 28, the Nuremberg Council wrote to the Council of Frankfurt, asking them to confiscate all copies transported to the Frankfurt Book Fair and return them to Nuremberg. Due to the fact, as described above, that most copies of Eyn wunderliche Weyssagung were seized and destroyed by the Nuremberg authorities, the book is extremely rare. Such copies, like the exquisite coloured one offered herewith, have survived because they were beautifully coloured. The wealthy patron who could pay for such a copy, most likely refused to turn over this copy to the authorities, despite the official directive to do so. The copy in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nuremberg is a particularly fine example also with contemporary hand-colouring to the woodcuts, with which this copy compares favorably. No copy at auction as per ABPC in over 35 years. OCLC cites two editions printed in 1527, one in Nuremberg printed by Guldemundt with the Schön woodcuts and one with no place or printer (possibly Wittemberg) with different woodcuts. Of our edition, 5 copies listed in America: HRC Texas, Yale, Princeton, Library of Congress and Univ. of Wisconsin.

        Principis Avic. libri canonis necnon de medicinis cordialibus & cantica ab Andrea Bellunensi ex antiquis Arabum originalibus ingenti labore summaque diligentia correcti atque in integrum restituti vna cum interpretatione nominum Arabicorum.

      Venice, Lucantonio Giunta, June 1527.. Folio (240 x 336 mm). (4), 445 ff., 1 blank f., (12) ff. With 2 title pages printed in red and black with woodcut borders and printer's device. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine title.. Rare and early Venetian edition of what is perhaps the most important medical text of the Middle Ages: the greatest work of Ibn Sina, hailed as "the most famous medical text ever written" (Garrison/M. 43). Based on the translation of Gerard of Cremona, edited and revised by Andrea Alpago of Belluno, who also included an extensive glossary of Arabic terms (no edition in the original Arabic was printed until 1593). In the illustrated title page, portraits appear of the great classical and medieval Islamic figures of medicine and philosophy: Asclepius, Hippocrates, Galen, Avicenna, Rasis, Plato, Aristotle, Theophrastus and Averroes. - Ibn Sina's "Keta-b al-qanun fi'l-tebb" ("Canon of Medicine"), written in Arabic but widely translated throughout the Middle Ages and the basis of medical training in the West as late as the mid-17th century. Completed in 1025, the Qanun is divided into 5 books, devoted to the basic principles of medicine, the Materia Medica (listing about 800 drugs), pathology, diseases affecting the body as a whole and finally the formulary. - Ibn Sina (c. 980-1037), known in the Western tradition as Avicenna, was physician to the ruling caliphs. The influence of his Qanun can hardly be overestimated. Translated into Latin in the 12th century, it became a standard textbook of Galenic medicine, influencing many generations of physicians. "From the early fourteenth to the mid-sixteenth century Avicenna held a high place in Western European medical studies, ranking together with Hippocrates and Galen as an acknowledged authority" (Weisser). "[T]he final codification of all Greco-Arabic medicine. It dominated the medical schools of Europe and Asia for five centuries" (Garrison/M. 43). - Some edge defects and waterstaining; occasional insignificant worming. Binding professionally restored. In the present copy, the main title page and the glossary of Arabic terms have been bound at the end of the volume. - Edit 16, CNCE 3542. BM-STC Italian 335. Not in Adams.

      Cologne: Apud Eucharium Cervicornum, sumptu et aere M. Godefridi Hittorpii, 1527. [4] ll., 330 pp.; [24] ll., 202 pp., [13] ll. Both titles within identical alegorical woodcut border depicting at its base a recumbent Cleopatra pressing adders to her breasts, Dionysus pulling the beard of an old man, etc.; illustrated with woodcut capitals, headpieces and fleurons; first page of NOCTES within large woodcut border depicting the founders of Cologne, Agrippa and Agrippina [all illustrations by Hittorp?]. 1 vols. Folio. Contemporary calf, covers elaborately ruled and tooled in blind; spine perished; internally, some soiling and staining throughout, but sound; in a quarter morocco slipcase with chemise. Very interesting and beautifully decorated Cologne printings by Cervicornum - who seemingly specialized in humanistic works and standard Latin classics such as these, working for the publisher Gottfried Hittorp. He may, alas, be best remembered by posterity for his piracy of Erasmus's edition (originally printed by Froben ) of Epistolae Tres by Jerome in 1520, as well as Erasmus' Vita Hieronymi, taken from Erasmus' edition of St. Jerome's works printed by Froben in 1516.
