        Damo ed Eva

      Bulino, 1540 circa, monogrammato in lastra. Copia anonima dell'incisione di Beham. 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, 1540 circa, signed on plate. Anon copy aftre Beham's engraving. 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 App 1. Size 52x79.

        "Novae Insulae XVII Nova Tabula" from Geographia universalis, vetus et nova (Ptolemy's Geography)

      Basel, 1540. THE FIRST MAP TO SHOW NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA AS SEPARATE ENTITIES Woodcut: 121/8" x 147/8" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 45; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 15-17. In 1540, Basel-based cartographer Sebastian Münster published a groundbreaking edition of Ptolemy's Geography, based on the Latin translation of Willibard Pirckheimer, that included this important early map devoted exclusively to the New World. Stretching from Greenland down the coast of Newfoundland to Florida and the Caribbean (with "Cuba" distinctly labeled), and as far south as the Strait of Magellan, the map includes corners of Asia, Europe and Africa, but emphasizes the notion that the recently discovered landmasses are a distinct entity: a truly New World as opposed to a part of Asia, as many previous geographers believed. When Münster included this map in a second publication, his great Cosmographia universalis (first published 1540), he introduced his concept of the New World to an international public. The book, ultimately translated into five languages and published in dozens of different editions, proved to be one of the most influential works dealing with geography in the sixteenth century, and Münster's map became the most widely circulated contemporary delineation of the New World until the publication of Ortelius's atlas in 1570. Münster's map is a revealing lens onto contemporary geographical ideas about the Americas. The eastern coastline, although distorted in places, is remarkably recognizable considering that fewer than fifty years had transpired since Columbus's first voyage. The dearth of knowledge regarding the vast inland regions is reflected in the lack of detail other than conventional symbols for mountains and forests. The outline of South America is based on recent information gleaned from the discoveries of Magellan, a source that Münster acknowledged by depicting the explorer's ship in the Pacific Ocean. Münster, a native of Ingelheim near Mainz in Germany, studied Hebrew at Heidelberg and became an eminent professor in that field as well as a scholar of geography. He was also an innovator in the technological development of map printing. In the sixteenth century the printing of image and text together was still a particular challenge, and Münster was one of the first to create space for the insertion of place-names in metal type within the woodblocks used to print his maps. Münster's most significant contribution to the history of cartography, however, was this map, which provides a rare glimpse into changing perceptions of the New World.. Book.

Den svage beskæring af nogle af de samtidige tilskrevne marginalnoter indicerer, at biblen har været ombundet, men dog i 1500-tallet, da bindet er et decideret renaissancebind. Det træstukne titelblad i fin facsimile. F (6),F 123 (I-CXXIII),F 124 (Træsnit),F 158 (I-CLVIII),F 78 (I-LXXVIII),F 140 (I-CXL) F 89, (I-LXXXIX, F 90 blank, F 165 (I-CLV). - F 165: kolofon: "Tryckt i Upsala aff Georgen Richolff 1541."- Blad 2 (= a2) lidt kantflosset med nogle reparationer i margin og rift i nederste hjørne med tab af få bogstaver. Bladet med brugspor. De næste 10 blade med små reparationer i nederste hjørner og lettere brugsspor. Sidste ca.20 blade med nogle skjolder, mest i marginer. 4 blade lige før kolofonbladet med nogle reparationer i marginer med tab af ganske få bogstaver på blad F 161. På blad 157 en smule tab af øverste højre træsnit. Brugsspor her og der, men ganske velbevaret. Nogle marginaltilskrifter i samtidig hånd. Rigt illustreret med træsnit i teksten, nogle originale træsnit af Cranach, originale af Georg Lemberger samt gengivelser efter Cranach, Altdorfer m.v. Talrige store og mindre træskårne initialer. Bortset fra det facsimilerede titelblad, et komplet eksemplar af Vasa Biblen.. Originaltrykket af den første trykte Svenske Bibel, den såkaldte Gustav Vasa-Bibel, som har haft et ganske overordentlig og betydelig indflydelse på det svenske skriftsprog. Redigeret af Laurentius Petri, er Gustaf-Vasa bibelen uden sammenligning det største og fornemste svenske bogværk fra 1500-tallet, og oversættelsen blev grundlaget for alle svenske bibler langt op i Det 19. århundrede. Vasa-Bibelen "var redan vid Upsala mötet (1593) så sällsynt, att en ny upplaga då beslöts, ehura den aldrig kom till stånd. De exemplar, som bevarats till nutiden, äro mestadels ytterst illa medfarna och utgöra oftast endast usla fragment av det väldiga verket."(Björck & Börjesson Katalog No. 250 (1930), nr. 10)."Gustav Vasas bibel har utövat ett oerhört inflytande på det nysvenska skriftspråket. Översättningen utnärker sig, såsom v. Friesen framhåallar, för en enastående förenkling av språket, i det att översättarna bemödet sigh att åt sitt verk förläna en omsorgsfullt utarbetad och systematiskt genomfördortografisk dräkt, samtidigt som de icke uppgivit kontakten med det redan traditionella religiösa språkbruget. Jämförd med översättningen av NT 1526 betecknar den hya bibelöversättningen ett betydeligt framsteg, den har ju också med oväsentliga förändringar blivit omtryckt i talriga upplagor ändast in på 1800-talet." (Collijn)."This Swedish Bible is the first containing the entire text and the only complete Bible printed in Sweden in the 16th century. The translation is based on the Luther Bibles of 1523 and 1534 and was made under the direct supervision of the Swedish reformers, Laurentius Petri and Olavus Petri, who in this work laid the foundation of the modern Swedish language. Their text was used, with small alterations, in numerous editions up to the beginning of the 19th century..... the printing of this Bible, which was the largest typographical undertaken of the century, had to be entrusted to a foreign printer, Georg Richoff of Lubeck, who was invited to Uppsala. He brought new type material, the Teuerdanck Fraktur for headlines and a Wittenber Schwabach for the text, and more than ten series of initials of different sizes, thus introducing the typographical resources of the German High renaissnace into Sweden. He also brought a wide range of wood-blocks, mainly from Wittenberg, for the sumpttuous illustrations: an architectural title-frame, a cricifix, the arms of the Realm and 60 illustrations in the text. Of these 7 are originals by Lucas Cranach the Elder and 4 by his pupils, 3 by Georg Lemberger and the rest copies from Cranach, Altdorfer, the monogrammist AW and DS, and from Lemberger's series of Apocalypse-illustrations for the first Wittenberg octavo Testament of 1524.... The three original blocks by Lemberger are known only from this Bible... This Bible is esteemed to be second only to the 1492 "revelationes" among printed Swedish books."(Lindberg "Swedish Books 1280-1967", p. 15).The Vasa-Bible contains further the FIRST PRINTED MAP IN SWEDEN, the so-called "Wittenberg World Map" or "Daniel's Dream Map" (128 x 175 mm) printed on F 104 verso (in Der Prophet Daniel). The map shows the three continents Asia, Europe and Africa in a crude form. (Africa is here spelled 'Affrica').The map printed here is the first version, block 2 of the map, only known from the Vasa-Bible.The first mention of Daniel's Dream Map is made in a commentary on the prophet Daniel by Justus Jonas and Philipp Melanchthon in December 1529 and immediately afterwards in January 1530 in an interpretation of the book of the prophet Daniel by Martin Luther, both published by Hans Lufft in Wittenberg. (See www.daniels-dream-map.com). Collijn "Sveriges Bibliogrrafi intill År 1600", Bd. II: pp. 88-104. - Darlow a. Moule: 8808. - Rumball-Petre: 277. - Lindberg "Swedish Books 1280-1967", nr. 15
