        16th Century Medieval Stained Glass Window.

      - Original antique stained glass with a unique etched design. Item measures approximately 12 cm x 9 cm. Circa 19th century lead frame for preservation. Recent copper wire appended to the frame for hanging. Some loss to colour, otherwise in very good condition for its age and circumstance. A rare surviving portion of a 16th century Baroque styled stained glass window, crafted by the hands of a skilful glazier. Its perplexing paradoxal mosaic of a diamond or subtle cross-like pattern surrounded by mythical winged beasts, possibly the falcon so popular in mythology, together with its dark background and vivid green, suggests a politically cautious application of the art as seen during the Reformation. While its precise story cannot be told, it is most probable that this glass was salvaged from a ransacked building in Continental Europe, possibly even owned by an aristocrat, gentry, or monastic leader whose residence or workplace was vengefully damaged in the English Reformation. In the 16th and 17th centuries, vast and deliberate destruction of stained glass was rampant in Europe as a result of political upheavals and religious unrest, a tragic chapter in history and the reason that samples such as this are exceedingly scarce. While Reformation attacks on Catholic churches destroyed a tremendous amount of glass, particularly in England, Calvinist iconoclasm ended production altogether in the North. In 1547 the Dissolution of the Monasteries ordered the destruction of all decorative glass in churches. In 1633, many of the glass factories in Lorraine, France were devastated by war. From 1642 through 1653 the Commonwealth of England destroyed thousands more stained glass windows. Also beginning in the sixteenth century, with the Reformation, the creation of religious imagery had severe penalties. Glass makers subsequently sought secular commissions like moralizing roundels or heraldic panels in order to make a living.

      Lyons: Jean Frellon, 1547. small 4to. [ff. 52]. woodcut device on title. 94 half-page woodcuts by Hans Holbein & Hans Luetzelburger after Holbein’s designs & 4 quarter-page woodcut portraits of the four evangelists by another hand. woodcut initials. full 19th century red morocco, gilt back & inside dentelles, all edges gilt (joints & corners worn, staining to upper front cover, bookplates removed from paste-downs, marginal repairs to first 2 leaves, first gathering lightly embrowned, some dampstaining to inner margins of outer gatherings, occasional light foxing). bookdealer catalogue clippings on front flyleaf & blank. The first of two editions printed by Frellon in 1547. These 1547 editions mark the first appearance of the woodcut portraits of the four evangelists. Each of the fine Holbein woodcuts, four of the Creation and Fall of Man, followed by ninety illustrating Bible history, is accompanied by Latin text and a French quatrain by Gilles Corrozet. Holbein’s remarkable woodcuts exerted great influence on later bible illustration. "Regarded as illustrations to the books of the Old Testament, these woodcuts are in all ways admirable…[Holbein] has concentrated his skill…upon the faithful and accurate telling of these sacred stories …and he does this with a perfect understanding of their strong dramatic power and their equally strong human interest…[Holbein] is revealed in them as a teller of stories of the first rank, with the power of seizing the most dramatic moment of each incident he depicts with unfailing instinct, and then representing it with a few unerring strokes of his pencil clearly and simply…".

[From Colophon: In Venetia nella stamperia degli heredidi Luc'Antonio Giunti Fiorentino, Nell anno del MDXLVII. Nel mese di Marzo.] 1547. Large, thick folio, 309 x 212 mms., [21 leaves, including final blank], 485 leaves printed recto and verso, with engraved vignette on title-page and a Giunti engraved vignette on colophon, later 18th century quarter vellum, marbled boards, black morocco; upper inner margin and lower portion of title-page neatly repaired, lower front hinge slightly cracked, margins of last leaf very slightly frayed, corners worn, but a very good copy of this popular imprint. This edition was prepared by the Italian historian and classicist, Jacopo Nardi (1476 - 1563). Titus Livius, as the historian is formally known, composed his Ab urbe condita in the years 27 to 15 B. C., though only about 25% of the original is thought to survive. There was some dispute in the early 19th century about the editio princeps, which is the edition printed in Rome by Sweynheym and Pannartz in two volumes in 1469. Nardi's edition was first published in 1540.

Printed in black letter. Woodcut of the Last Supper on A8r. Minor soiling early and late, washed (likely when bound), two small patches of early repair to verso of title, a few instances of marginalia or emphasis marks remain after having been "Bedfordized" (with shadows of more extensive annotations scattered in some margins), early careful restoration to the blank foremargins of g2-3, some occasional foxing or marginal smudges, ink acquisition note and cathedral blindstamp on binder's blank, joints slightly rubbed, old bookseller's description formerly tipped to front pastedown, otherwise a very good copy, with the bookplate of Sir J.A. Brooke. First edition in English (translator not identified) of this compilation from the Archbishop's writings assembled by Philipp Melanchthon and Martin Bucer, first published in German in 1543. A second edition was published in 1548, and some copies of this edition feature a woodcut of St. John the Evangelist in place of the woodcut of the Last Supper. The text is known to have exerted some influence upon Archbishop Cranmer and his associates in their compilation of the first English Book of Common Prayer. Both this edition and the second edition are uncommon in commerce. One copy of the first is recorded in ABPC in the last 35 years (1993), and two copies of the second edition. The ESTC locates fifteen copies, of which seven (including this copy) are in North America. The ink note on the endsheet traces the provenance of this copy to the Gardner sale (1854). A good example of the work of the foremost English printer/publisher of Protestant material of his generation. STC 13213. ESTC S103980. LUBORSKY & INGRAM 13213.

During his first year of monastic life he wrote a poem,"On the Decline of the Church", and devoted himself to prayer and abstention. His early works included philosophical treatises concerning Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas. Sent to Florence to preach he immediately took issue with the pagan persuits of many Florentines. The court of Lorenzo de Medici was a obvious target of his sermons. During the period 1485-89 he preached in many Italian cities with increasing stress on Apocalyptic ideas. He lived a very simple acerbic life and strove to denounce the Medici as immoral tyrants. His preachings produced results and eventually a form of theocratic democracy was established in Florence largely based on Savonarola's ideas. In time his strident moral doctrine met resistance, especially his increasing rants against the pope and the Curia. This led to his excommunication but did not dampen his defiance. In the end Savonarola's following deserted him and he and two other members of his order were condemned to death. On May 23 , 1498 they were hanged and their bodies burned. . Hard Cover. Very Good. 8 vo,. (15 cm).

        DES DIUINES INSTITUTIONS CONTRE LES GENTILS & IDOLATRES

      Lyon: Imprimé par Balthazar Arnoullet [pour] Guillaume Gaseau, 1547. A Charming Manifestation ofFrench Renaissance Refinement 127 x 89 mm (5 x 3 1/2"). [32], 653, [1] pp. (without the final blank). Translated from Latin into French by René Famé. STRIKING CONTEMPORARY FRENCH CALF IN THE ENTRELAC STYLE, covers with a complex strapwork pattern tooled in gilt and painted black and white, the design comprising borders, interlaced squares, and complex scalloped and spade-like panels, with a green-painted oval at the center, the original flat spine (remounted in the 19th century and with small restorations) diapered, with each lozenge enclosing a thick dot, all edges gilt (small recent repair to bottom of front joint). Title page with large woodcut printer's device; historiated opening initial showing a scholar with a book, and a number of foliated initials throughout. Early ink inscription (of "Bavet"?) on title page, frequent underlinings and marginal annotations in a neat contemporary hand. Brunet III, 737; Baudrier X, 118. Paint in the strapwork decoration slightly eroded in spots, leaves with overall faint yellowing, isolated minor marginal stains or foxing, one page with ink blot obscuring one word, other trivial imperfections, but still AN EXTREMELY APPEALING COPY, the splendid animated contemporary binding solid, bright, and with only minor wear, and nothing approaching a significant problem internally. One of the ablest defenders of the faith in the early centuries of Christianity, Lactantius (ca. 260-340) was a teacher of rhetoric known for his elegant flow of words (a reputation that probably earned him his name, which in English is roughly equivalent to "Milky"). His "Divine Institutions" presents the new religion as the most logical of creeds, drawing on the arguments of Stoic philosophy and aimed at an audience of educated pagans. The work was written during the Great Persecution, but references added by Lactantius to Constantine indicate that he lived to see the legalization of Christianity. This first French translation by René Famé, secretary to Francis I, was likely undertaken at the request of that monarch, to whom the work is dedicated. Ours is probably the second edition, the first having been issued in Paris in 1542. Like the imprint, the binding here is likely to have originated in Lyon, where many of the best entrelac bindings were executed during the reigns of Francis I and Henry II. Partly influenced by Islamic models, entrelac decoration made its way through Italy and into southern France, where it came to adorn some of the finest bindings of the period, to be found in such major libraries as those owned by Henry II, Catherine de Medici, and Jean Grolier in France; by Marcus Fugger in Germany; and by Thomas Wotton in England. During this time, the use, as here, of painted inlays or onlays was considered to be the height of French bibliopegic fashion and one of the most charming manifestations of the elegance of the Renaissance in France. Goldschmidt, for example, calls these bindings "great artistic creations" that represent "the highest achievements in the art of bookbinding in the Renaissance period." Examples of such binding designs include lot #74 in the Wittock sale (Sotheby's, 7 July 2004), a Lucanus published in Lyon in 1547, and Broxbourne Library binding #29, a three-volume set of Cicero published in Lyon that same year.

        Libro di Benedetto Bordone nel qual si ragiona de tutte l'isole del mondo

      Venice: [Paulis Manutius Aldus for] Federico Torresano, 1547. Folio (11 6/8 x 8 inches). Title-page printed in red and black with Torresano's woodcut tower device and within and elaborate floriated border with dolphins. 3 fine double-page woodcut maps, double-page woodcut town plan of Venice, 2 full-page, 2 double half-page, and 105 woodcut maps and town plans in the text. Early 19th-century brown morocco gilt, each cover decorated with a fine central gilt stamp of the Aldus device, all edges gilt (front cover detached). Provenance: early Latin inscription "D[eus] nobis haec otia" (God has given us our tranquility") at the foot of the title-page. First Aldine press edition, following the two Zappino editions of 1528 and 1534, and printed using the same woodblocks. The double-page maps include a fine woodcut of the world on an oval projection based on that of Francesco Rosselli, and depicting the eastern coastline of America as "Terra del Laboratore" and "Ponete modo novo", Europe and the northern coastline of Africa, Asia, and a fine plan of Venice. "Terra de Lavoratore" represents the Atlantic coast of Canada, and "p[ar]te del mondo novo" ("part of the New World") corresponding to the Caribbean Sea. Beneath that textual indication, at the lower margin of the map, Bordone included a corner of South America. Others maps related to the new world include woodcuts of Cuba, Venezuela, Brazil, "La gran citta di Temistican" (modern-day Mexico City) before its destruction by Cortez, and several of the West Indies. The "Copia delle Lettere de Perfetto della India la Nova Spagna detta alla Cesarea Maesta," not included in Zappino's 1528 edition (but in the 1534 edition), is the earliest printed account of Pizzarro's entry into Peru. The isolario, or book of islands, was a popular genre that had first appeared in manuscript examples by Cristoforo Buondelmonte dating from the early fifteenth century, then in printed versions by Bartolommeo dalli Sonetti from the late 1400s. More so than its predecessors, the isolario first published in 1528 by Venice-based cartographer Benedetto Bordone was formative for Renaissance geographical conceptions. Bordone's early sixteenth-century treatment of the island-atlas theme greatly expanded upon the earlier works, augmenting the conventional focus on the eastern Mediterranean to encompass maps of other parts of Europe and the world, stretching as far as the Indian Ocean, the African coastline and the New World. Bordone's maps of islands in the West Indies, and the Pacific: Sumatra and Java, and even one of Japan based on the suppositions of Marco Polo, although schematic in their outlines (perhaps reflecting the author's training as a miniaturist as opposed to a cartographer), were among the first nautical charts of these regions to become widely available.
