Simmern: H. Rodler, 1531. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio, [45] leaves (without last blank leaf). With numerous half and full-page woodcuts in text; 11 woodcuts with the red lines delineating perspective; title in printed in red and black. Early ownership inscription of "A. Volpi" on title-page. Modern black morocco in a fine antique style. FIRST EDITION and a fine copy of this elaborately illustrated introduction to linear perspective, a cogent vernacular text which played a key role in disseminating Dürer's projection method throughout Germany. The work effectively turns Dürer's treatise into a model book. Notably, many of the geometrical diagrams (especially those with the red overprinting) owe something to Pelerin-the brilliant illustrations juxtapose complex floor and ceiling patterns, cul-de-sacs in densely built up medieval streets with background landscapes, and church interiors with complex patterns of columns and vaulted ceilings. Some of the designs (D iiiir) are so enthralled to pattern at the expense of architectural reality that they are very likely designs for intarsia, or anticipate the playful fantasies found in model books later in the century. Another design Giiii r shows proto-cubist human figures and heads found in Lautensack's 1564 Kunstebuchlein.In his preface, Rodler tells the reader that Dürer's Underweysung der Messung (1525) was too difficult for most people to understand, although he acknowledges the great merits of the work. Rodler and the Duke, therefore, drew upon both the Underweysung and Dürer's Vier Büc … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dante [Alighieri]
Vinegia: Marchio Sessa, 1531. Rare and important edition, and only the fourth printing of Dante’s ‘Convivio’. This edition used by academics and especially by Salvini With a beautifully engraved titlepage featuring an illustrated and regal border depicting nymphs and animals amidst climbing vines, initial 7-line capital letter handsomely engraved, colophon leaf engraved. Small octavo, in an antique binding of soft vellum, probably of the 19th century, the spine with gilt decorations all over and the title and author printed in gilt. [xvi], 112 leaves A clean, fresh and well preserved copy of this scarce work, very little spotting, crisp and unpressed and unwashed. RARE AND IMPORTANT EDITION. All 16th century editions of the work are extremely elusive. Dante’s CONVIVIO, or Banquet, is an unfinished philosophical work by the great Italian poet. It was planned as a series of 14 treatises, each in the form of a prose commentary on one of Dante’s own CANZONI. The four completed treatises, written between 1304 and 1308, draw on numerous philosophical sources but most heavily on Aristotle. It is the first work of Dante to explore certain doctrines and meditations, politics and the political society and moral man.

Basiliae (Basel), Froben, August 1531. Small 8vo. Very nice later (ab. 1700) full brown morocco, probably Italian, with gilt borders to boards, back richly gilt. Old library-label to lower back, scratch to front-board, white chalk-like staining to back-board. Internally a bit of brownspotting, but overall good condition. Contemporary marginal notes to three pp. Woodcut printer's device to t-p. and last leaf, a few woodcut initials. 144, (6) pp., 1 f. w. printer's device. With the ex-libris of Jeffrey Norton.. Very rare Froben-edition of the first work by the Renaissance-historian Paolo Giovio. All early editions of this work are very rare.Giovio was a gifted philosopher, medic and historian. He was born in 1483 in Come (Lombard) and was as controversial a person as he was an author. He died in 1552 in Florence, and this particular edition is thus printed in his lifetime. Three other editions appeared in his lifetime, all printed in Rome, in 1524, 1527, 1528, but the 1531-edition is the only one by as prominent a printer as Froben.Giovio was very strategic and succeeded in connecting himself with the Medici-family, especially Giulio Medici, who was later elected Pope (Clement VIII); when he became Pope, Giovio was assigned chambers in the Vatican and in 1528 he was announced Bishop of Nocera. Giovio wrote historical and biographical works and essays; these works are said not to be taken as authorities, but in their entirety and with proper reservation they do have real value, especially because he gives a rich and lively picture of Italy in his own time. He gives indispensab … [Click Below for Full Description]

Full brown sheepskin, a pastiche flammande binding of the sixteenth century, back to 4 stars nerves and seedling cold boards are a central diamond from which radiate a series of frames.
