HOMER
Venice: [Melchiorre Sessa, 1540?]. This is a convincing 19th century forgery of a celebrated type of Renaissance binding, used here to cover a rare edition of a translation of the "Odyssey" by Andreas Divus. The story behind the very intriguing binding begins about 1545, when a library of approximately 200 books came into the possession of a Genoese youth of noble birth named Giovanni Battista Grimaldi (ca. 1524 - ca. 1612), apparently a student at the Roman Accademia della Virtù. Each of these volumes was bound in goatskin to a certain design, the key feature of which was an oval plaquette showing Apollo and Pegasus (both associated with swift flight) at the middle of each cover, with a Greek motto ("Straight and not crooked") in gilt in a collar around the vignette. Produced by three eminent masters, these bindings had long been famous and their provenance much debated before G. D. Hobson identified their original owner in his authoritative "Apollo and Pegasus," published in 1975, so it is not surprising that attempts would be made to cash in on their celebrity. During the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, at least two binders are known to have produced fraudulent replicas of the much sought-after Apollo and Pegasus bindings. The first of these binders--and the one almost certainly at work here--was Vittorio Villa (d. 1892) of Bologna and Milan, who typically started with plain or sparsely decorated 16th century bindings, which he then tooled more elaborately and to which he added the Apollo and Pegasus medallion.

[Melchiorre Sessa 1540?], Venice - 165 x 108 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 1/4"). 238, [2] leaves. Contemporary olive brown calf over pasteboard, ends of spine repaired (probably late in the 19th century), gilt covers framed with two sets of double rules, outer panel with broad foliate curl cornerpieces and sidepieces with trefoil of three rings between each, inner panel with 19th century decoration, including blind-stamped horizontal oval centerpiece of Apollo and Pegasus, the gilt collar with Greek motto touching rules at sides, large foliate sprays at head and foot curling to left and right and rising to a fleuron tool at ends, raised bands, spine panelled in gilt featuring broad rules and fleuron centerpiece, brown morocco label. Woodcut historiated initials, and charming cat-and-mouse printer's device.

Contemporary marginal annotations in Latin and Greek. STC Italian, p. 331. Joints partly cracked (and wormed in two places), corners somewhat worn, some scuffing to the leather, but the binding completely solid, the gilt still distinct, the plaquettes (not surprisingly) bright, and the volume altogether pleasing even with its defects.

PICCOLOMINI Alessandro
Nella qual comedia intervengono varij abbattimenti di diverse sorte d'armi et intrcciati, ogni cosa in tempi e misure di Morescha, cosa non manco nuova che bella. S.l. né d. (Venezia, Andrea Arrivabene, 1540 ca.), - in-8, ff. 78, (1 bianco presente, manca altro f. bianco), leg. p. perg. antica flessibile, in astuccio m. pelle e ang. con tit. e filetti oro al dorso. Dedica dello stampatore A. Arrivabene a Giovanni Soranzo datata 15 novembre 1540. Il nome dell'autore viene citato nella dedica ed in fine al volumetto. Prima edizione, estremamente rara, di questa commedia in cinque atti in prosa, con prologo, ambientata nella città di Pisa. Rappresentata per la prima volta a Siena nel 1536, alla presenza dell'imperatore Carlo V, la commedia mette sul palcoscenico ben ventisette personaggi che parlano italiano, spagnolo, dialetto napoletano e ''uno scolare tedesco esprimentesi in un italiano barbaro con qualche mistura della sua lingua nativa'' (Sanesi pp. 334-6); la trama, assai complessa, prevede il lieto fine per i due protagonisti, Ferrante e Ginevra: la pozione che erano stati costretti a bere non era veleno, bensì bevanda innocua, così i due ''potranno godere del loro costante amore'' (Sanesi). La commedia, al pari delle altre due del Piccolomini (L'Alessandro e L'Hortensio), ebbe grande successo ed un numero straordinario di edizioni. L'autore (Siena 1508 - 1579) fu intellettuale di cultura vastissima: letterato, filosofo, astronomo; tra i fondatori della celebre Accademia senese degli Intronati, col nome di Stordito, insegnò filosofia morale a Padova e poi a Roma; nel 15 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Faksimile. London 2012.
- Der junge Heinrich wurde dank seines großzügigen Engagements und seines ungewöhnlichen Kunstverständnisses zu einem der wichtigsten Mäzene seiner Zeit, sein Hof war der prächtigste von ganz Europa. Er war der erste Renaissanceherrscher Englands und brachte viel Interesse für die Künste mit, sprach diverse Sprachen, machte aus seinem Hof ein künstlerisches Zentrum. Sein privates Gebetbuch, ihm vom französischen Buchmaler Jean Mallard im Jahr 1540 übergeben, verzaubert Fachwelt und Publikum bis heute gleichermaßen. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt hatte der König sich bereits zum Oberhaupt der englischen Kirche erhoben und war von Fettleibigkeit und Krankheit geplagt. Immer wieder versenkte sich Heinrich in die Lektüre des Psalters und versah die Schrift mit rund 100 eigenen Anmerkungen - eine überaus kostbare Quelle, um dem spirituellen Seelenzustand des Königs während seiner 10 letzen Lebensjahre näher zu kommen und seine Gedankenwelt zu entschlüsseln. Jetzt, über 500 Jahre nach seiner Entstehung, wurde das kultur- wie kunsthistorisch kostbare Stück erstmalig faksimiliert - das Ergebnis ist überwältigend: Der lateinische Text ist in einem eleganten humanistischen Ton verfasst, der sich auch heute noch gut lesen lässt. Das Buch ist mit sieben erlesenen Miniaturen und Hunderten von prächtig Illuminationen und Verzierungen wie Vögel, Tiere, Blumen und Pflanzen geschmückt. Sensationell sind natürlich Henrys Randnotizen in Bleistift und roter Tinte - sie sind im zugehörigen Kommentarband in das heutige Englisch übersetzt. Der Psalter ist in einem sehr guten Erhaltungszustand, sodass die Fa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Savonarola, Girolamo.
In Venetia: [colophon: Stampate in Venetia da Giouanantonio de Volpini detto il Rizo stampadore 8vo (15 cm; 6"). [8], 307, [1] ff. (the last blank).. 1540 Collection of 22 sermons on the Exodus, in Italian, delivered by the rebellious Dominican priest Girolamo Savonarola (1452–98) starting on 11 February 1498 at the Florentine church Santa Maria del Fiore and concluding at San Marco on 18 March. These were => the first sermons preached by him after and despite his excommunication by papal brief (13 May 1497) and they were => the last series he preached before his execution at the stake (23 May 1498). They were collected for publication by Lorenzo Violi, who heard at least a few of the series in person, "dalla viva voce" (f. *7). In the second sermon (ff. 16v–30), Savonarola => rails against his own excommunication, and calls false the very briefs meant to silence him, reproaching the Pope specifically. The tense political atmosphere in Florence after Savonarola's death prevented Violi from publishing the collection for nearly a decade (although he did issue five of the sermons individually while Savonarola was still alive). This, the fourth edition, was edited by Giovanni Brasavola, and dedicated to the Duke of Ferrara and Queen Isabella of Aragon. The text is in Italian with scriptural references in Latin, printed in roman character in single-column format, occasionally narrowing on the page into center-justified conclusions; the volume's good sprinkling of historiated and decorated woodcut initials are more than usually lively, and the woodcut on the title-page fittingly … [Click Below for Full Description]

Durand, Guillaume [or Guilelmus Duranti]
Lyon: Nicolaum Petit, 1540 A scarce edition, edited by Bonetto de' Locatelli, of what is arguably the most important medieval treatise on the symbolism of church architecture and rituals of worship, written by the French bishop William Durand of Mende (1230-1296). First published in 1459 by Gutenberg's partners, Johann Fust and Peter Schoeffer, this was one of the most frequently copies and disseminated texts in medieval Christianity, and many editions appeared in the fifteenth and sixteenth century. The present edition is rare: OCLC notes copies at the University of Florida, Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies, Washington State University, and the United Library in Illinois only. Contemporary limp vellum with title in manuscript on spine, suede ties. Quarto. Title within an elaborate woodcut architectural border, printed in black and red, woodcut printer's device on verso of last leaf. Decorative woodcut initials. Free endpapers lacking, twentieth-century ownership annotation on front pastedown. A very good, clean copy. Its eight books contain a detailed account of the laws, ceremonies, customs, and mystical interpretation of the Roman Rite. Book I treats of [religious art and architecture:] the church, altar, pictures, bells, churchyard, etc.; II of the ministers; III of vestments; IV of the Mass; V of the canonical hours; VI of the Proprium Temporis; VII of the Proprium Sanctorum; and VIII of the astronomical calendar, manner of finding Easter, Epacts, etc. [The] Rationale is the most complete medieval treatise of its kind; it is still the standard authority for … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Tavola sopra il Libro chiamato Decameron...); solida leg. settecentesca in p / perg. con tit. in oro su tass. al ds., tagli spruzz.; 3 imprese tip. dei Giunti, la 1^ entro ovale architettonico al front., la 2^ molto più grande, allegorica e con motto, posta al verso della c.b. che segue il Registro, la 3^ ancora diversa e con motto, posta al v. della c.b. che segue il Registro dell?Indice a fine vol. Questa seconda ediz., pubblicata nel novembre dello stesso anno della prima, ?deve riguardarsi come l?ottima fra quelle del Salviati? secondo il Gamba (181, p. 58 - 59), essendo particolarmente accurata, sia per l?integrità del testo che per la competenza delle note del Salviati (Firenze 1540 - 1589), umanista e filologo italiano di nobile famiglia, tra i principali promotori della fondazione dell'Accademia della Crusca nel 1582 e venerato come l?oracolo di Firenze, della Toscana e dell?Italia (cav. Baldelli). Molto bella anche dal punto di vista tipografico sia per l?eleganza e la nitidezza del carattere corsivo che per la finezza dei grandi capil. xilografici abitati (cm 4x4) che ornano l?inizio di ogni novella. Lievi ombreggiature ai margini e qc. lieve alone dovuti all?uso, piccole mancanze riparate al margine delle prime 6 cc. che non interessano il testo, ma solido ottimo vol. Raro. 307 / 29 313
