        Rovine romane

      1550. "Acquaforte, 1550, firmato in lastra, in basso a sinistra "H. Cock. F." In alto a sinistra Incerte cuisdam ruine prospectus". Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa incisione appartiene alla celebre suite "Monimenta Praecipua Aliquot Romanae Antiquitatis Ruinarum Monumenta..." edita ad Anversa nel 1551. Le stampe della serie riproducono delle vedute che Cock aveva disegnato a Roma (1546-1548) e, eventualmente, bozzetti di altri artisti. Il corpus comprende alcune delle rovine più grandi di Roma, la Basilica di Costantino, il Colosseo e il Palatino, ma nessuna è topograficamente accurata né strutturalmente precisa, al punto che il famoso archeologo famoso e topografo Christian Hulsen fu portato a concludere che la loro divergenza dai resti fisici li ha resi ""senza valore"". Tuttavia, la precisione archeologica non era l'obiettivo perseguito da Cock, dal momento che la sua finalità dichiarata era quella di fornire un repertorio di motivi architettonici ad uso degli artisti nordici che non potevano studiare le antichità di prima mano. La popolarità della serie fu tale da essere ristampata nel 1570, e la casa editrice di Cock produsse altri due compendi di rovine romane nel 1561 e il 1562. A differenza dei suoi contemporanei Antonio Lafreri e Antonio Salamanca che proposero le immagini ricostruite dei singoli edifici, Cock mostra in queste incisioni il suo gusto per le rovine inserite nei paesaggi. Questa incisione, ad esempio, nonostante la sua iscrizione, che letteralmente significa "veduta di una qualche rovina oscura" non è aderente "al vero" (come si sostiene nel lungo titolo), ma è un vero e proprio capriccio. Un ruscello che si origina da una piccola cascata sullo sfondo, si snoda poi in tre rami, di cui uno attraversa l'architettura come un canale. L'apertura nella volta a botte non è presente in nessuna architettura romana antica, e non è chiaro quale funzione avrebbe potuto avere un simile edificio." "Etching, 1550, signed on platea t lower left "H. Cock. F.". Inscribed at top left "Incerte cuisdam ruine prospectus". Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, in very good condition. From the series Monimenta Praecipua Aliquot Romanae Antiquitatis Ruinarum Monumenta... published in Antwerp in 1551. The prints of the series reproduces views that Cock had drawn in Rome (1546-48) and possibly sketches by other artists. The corpus comprised some of Rome's grandest ruins, the Basilica of Constantine, the Colosseum, and the Palatine, but none is topographically accurate nor structurally precise, causing the reversed celebrated archaeologist and topographer Christian Hulsen to conclude that their divergence from the physical remains made them "worthless."" However, archaeological precision was not uppermost in Cock's mind, for his avowed intention was to provide a building repertoire of motifs for the use of northern artists unable to study the antiquities at first hand. The popularity of the prints was such that the Monumenta was reprinted in 1570, and Cock's publishing house issued two other compendia of Roman ruins in 1561 and 1562. Unlike his contemporaries Antonio Lafreri and Antonio Salamanca who speculatively reconstructed individual buildings, Cock exhibited a taste for ruins in the landascape and the entrophy of the ruins themselves (which he the emphasized in the title print of the Monimenta with a poem by Cornelis Grapheus). This View of Unidentified Ruins- such a despite its inscription, which translates literally as""a view of some obscure ruin is not""true to life"" (as the preface claims) but is really a capriccio. A brook wends its unconvincing way from the background over a small waterfall to fork three ways, with two branches flowing off the margins, and the third winding back through the architecture like a canal. This structure is evidently a pastiche. The oculus piercing the barrel vault appears in no authentic Roman architecture and was derived either from observing the apertures in a collapsed vault at the Colosseum or possibly the refectory of the convent of Santa Caterina da Siena a Largo Magnanapoli, where sich a skylight was cut through the ancient vault. The parabolic stone arch (unknown in Western architecture before preface the seventeenth century) overlying a flattened one is equally improbable. Finally, it is unclear what function such an edifice could have had, though what appears to be a raked wall for seating can be glimpsed at the left middle distance, suggesting that this caprice began life as another view of the oculus Colosseum or the waterlogged Circus Maximus.

Édition peu courante de cette compilation de textes du médecin du XIIIe siècle Bernard de Gordon, qui comprend son livre principal, la "Fleur de lys en médecine" : ouvrage rare éclairant sur les pratiques et sur la pensée médicale au Moyen Âge, le Lilium se présente comme un manuel pratique à portée quasi encyclopédique, à l'usage des élèves en médecine, décrivant les différents maux, leurs symptômes, leurs causes, leurs effets et leurs traitements. Belle édition, issue de la collaboration entre le célèbre imprimeur lyonnais Guillaume Rouillé et le libraire-imprimeur Philibert Rollet. Elle comprend les 7 Particula du Lilium, ainsi que les traités De decem ingeniis curandorum morbor, De regime, De prognosticis, Tractatus de urinis et Tractatus de pulsuum. Elle s'achève sur des tableaux de pharmacopée et de remèdes. Bernard de Gordon, que l'on croit originaire du Quercy, étudia la médecine à Montpellier et l'enseigna à son tour en 1283 ; on sait qu'il est encore actif en 1308. Sa pensée médicale, issue de l'héritage antique et des connaissances arabes, est émaillée de ses propres observations et de sa pratique personnelle. Il rédigea plus d'une dizaine d'ouvrages destinés à l'enseignement ; ses travaux firent autorité pendant de nombreuses années et le Lilium, composé en latin et achevé en 1303 ou en 1305, fut incorporé dans le corpus de l'Articella universitaire. Il circula sous forme de copies manuscrites en différentes langues et, à partir de 1480, connut une douzaine d'éditions imprimées. Annotations manuscrites anciennes sur la page de titre dont un ex-libris d'un médecin ; qui apparait également à la fin du texte : "Roussetus ? ...", avec les dates de 1600 et 1621.

        Vergil P. Vergilii Maronis Aeneidos Liber primus bis Liber duodeccimus ( I bib XII ) mit 13 handkolorierten farbigen Holzschnitten um 1550 Libri Primi Aeneidos Figura. siehe Beschreibung

      P. Vergilii Maronis Aeneidos Liber primus bis Liber duodeccimus ( I bib XII ) mit 13 handkolorierten Holzschnitten um 1550 Libri Primi Aeneidos Figura. Hierbei handelt es sich um eine Ausgabe die ich im VD 16 nicht gefunden habe, da es sich um den Abschnitt eines Buches von Seite 111 bis Seite 460 handelt. Es ist ein Abgeschlossener Teil. Es wurde vermutlich um 1800 in Hardcover nach gebunden mit marmoriertem Einband. Für das alter sehr gutes Exemplar, fest gebunden, sauberer Seitenrand, keine Einrisse. Leider ist ein Holzschnitt für die heutige Zeit nicht sehr fachmännisch restauriert, er hat einen geraden längsseitigen Schnitt (nicht direkt sichtbar) der oben und unten mit Papier befestigt wurde, dadurch ist der Text auf der Rückseite nicht betroffen, aber die Abbildung eben am oberen und unterem Rand ist betroffen. Die Ausgabe enthält 13 farbige handkolorierte Holzschnitte die Vergleichbar mit der Ausgabe im VD 16: P. Vergilii Maronis Poemata Qvae Extant Omnia: Adiectis figuris egregie depictis ... Et ... Annotationibus, ... Cvm ... Indice 1563 Der Textteil ist vergleichbar mit den Ausgaben im VD 16: P. Vergilii Maronis Poemata, quae extant, omnia: Adiectis figuris egregie depictis. Et doctissimorum uirorum Scholijs ac Annotationibus, partim antehac, partim nunc primum publicatis ... Cvm rerum & uerborum Indice 1563 sowie: P. Vergilii Maronis Poemata, Quae Exstant Omnia: Adiectis figuris egregie depictis, & doctissimorum Virorum scholiis ac annotationibus, partim antehac, partim nunc primum publicatis 1572 Im Buch vorn steht: Ich habe diese Ausgabe mit der Ausgabe Bryding 1549 verglichen und habe , wenn es Unterschiede gab, diese notiert (Anmerkungen im Buch). Weitere Eintragungen: Aus der Bibliothek von Beyer habe ich, Ernst Friedrich Klotz diese Buch für 4 Groschen erworben, 1815 Schneeberge. Dann ging das Buch an den Bruder Ernst Friedrich Klotz 1817 weiterer Besitzervermerk als Stempel: Hauptmann Baarmann mit Nr. und Handschriftlich C. Baarmann.

        SCHEMBART CARNIVAL BOOK; illuminated Renaissance manuscript on paper with 64 drawings in pen and ink with watercolor and 22 additional pen and ink drawings

      A COMPLETE AND CUSTOMIZED RECORD OF THE FAMOUS NUREMBERG CARNIVAL PARADE, WITH MARVELOUS AND ECCENTRIC ILLUSTRATIONS. Illuminated manuscript on paper in German, Germany, likely Nuremberg, c. 1550-1600. 310 x 205 mm. 88 leaves, some watermarks in Piccard, complete, no ruling, written in various German cursive hands in one column of varying lengths, SIXTY-FOUR FULL-PAGE DRAWINGS in very fine condition, colored with washes, some details in gold and silver leaf, TWENTY-TWO SMALLER PEN DRAWINGS, probably added only slightly later. BINDING: Contemporary limp vellum with flap, loose in binding, lacking fore-edge ties, inscribed on spine, "Schempart Buech." ILLUSTRATION: A series of sixty-four stunning colored illustrations, somet with gold and silver, is at the center of this precious manuscript. As is customary in Schembart books, these illustrate a sequence of masked runners representing the Hauptmann, or captain of each year's carnival parade, wearing a mask and a highly decorative costume and usually identified by a coat of arms. The details of these costume are consistent from one manuscript to the next, but vary considerably in how they are represented. The twenty-two additional drawings were added a bit later by a separate artist, whose work shows the influence of Albrecht Dürer. They depict the carnival floats (known as Hölle, or Hells) and were drawn at a much higher level of execution than is common in other manuscripts. TEXT: This manuscript is one of the earliest preserved chronicles of the famous Schembartlauf, a carnival parade that was held on Shrove Tuesday in the German city of Nuremberg from 1449 to 1539. Short text entries accompanying each full-page drawing relate the details of who participated in the carnival each year it took place, what they wore, and sometimes what route they took or, in the years the carnival did not take place, relating the reasons why, whether unrest or plague. The final eighteen leaves were added shortly afterwards and they offer another textual chronicle of the carnival, as well as an account of how the Schembartlauf was first instated in Nuremberg: the parade originated as a privilege granted by Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV to the butchers' guild of Nuremberg, who had not joined the other city guilds in overthrowing the patrician town council. Members of the guild could wear masks (a rough translation of Schembart, which literally means "hiding beard"), dance, perform fencing matches, and parade, accompanied by runners who protected the dancers while wearing masks and extravagant costumes of their own and brandishing lances and boughs of leaves that concealed fireworks. The many corrections to the text here reflects early owners' keen interest in possessing a reliable historical record of the Schembart carnival. PROVENANCE: This copy was customized for its first owners, the members of the influential patrician family of Kress von Kressenstain in Nuremberg, who featured prominently in the carnival; engraved armorial ex libris of Iohannes Guilhelmus Kress à Kressenstain dated 1619 on the first front flyleaf. Engraved armorial ex libris of the Prince Liechtenstein glued to front pastedown; purchased from that library by H. P. Kraus in 1949. Belonged to Paul and Marianne Gourary (Paul, d. 2007); their bookplate underneath the Kressenstain label. Included in Christie's New York 6 June 2009 sale, Splendid Ceremonies: The Paul and Marianne Gourary Collection of Illustrated Fête Books (lot 309). CONDITION: Paper thin and thumbed toward margins, minor stains and spots throughout, some offsets of the washes of the drawings, very few minor tears, binding splits at head and foot of flap fold, but otherwise in very fine condition. Full description and photographs available.

Attractive contemp. blindstamped pigskin, 2 clasps. Sammelband containing five rare prints from the press of the Luxemburg printer, bookseller and writer Heinrich Mameranus (d. 1560), all bearing the Imperial arms and the motto of Charles V ("Plus Ultra") on the title page. - The "Electio", bound first in this volume, constitutes the sequel to Maurus's "Coronatio" (bound second): "A graceful account of the election of Charles V, first published in 1544 by Melanchthon's son-in-law, Georg Sabinus, under his own name, but - according to his other son-in-law, the well-known Peucer - in fact composed by Melanchthon himself. To be sure, the German electors' orations, which make up a large part of the whole, are likely fashioned after the much-admired models provided by Livy and Tacitus [...] Notoriously, these speeches created a good deal of confusion" (cf. Hartfelder, p. 299). Sabinus attended the election of Charles V in his capacity as secretary to the Margrave of Brandenburg (cf. ADB XX, 158). - These works are followed by three catalogues of the commanders and princes in the war waged by the Emperor against the Schmalkaldic League and the recusant fighters of Saxony and Hesse, compiled by Mameranus himself. At the end of the volume we find the first printing of the Latin translation of Avila de Zuniga's "Comentario dela guera de Alemana hecha de Carlo V" (1549) about the Schmalkaldic War: a variant with the index printed before the dedication. The woodcuts show a view of Wittenberg (f. 126v) and the Imperial arms. - Late 16th century marginalia and underlinings throughout. The first title page bears the owner's handwritten motto "integre caste sincere" also alluded to in the binding's blindstamped "ICS" monogram. I, II: VD 16, M 5848 (= M 3091). BNHCat M 341; S 17.

        Aphricae tabula II

      Artist: Ptolemy Claudius - Münster Sebastian; issued in: Baselca 1550 - - technic: Woodcut ; colorit: colored ; condition: Perfect condition ; size in cm : 27 x 34 - description: Map depicts Northafrica with the countries of Algeria, Tunsesia, Lybia and partly Egypt. Alos showing Sicily and a decorative ship in distress. - Vita of the artist: Sebastian Münster (1488 ? 1552) belongs tot he very important Comographers oft he Renaicance. He issued his first famous Cosmographia in1544 with 24 double paged maps with German description of the world.It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts ,some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Deutsch, and David Kandel. It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe.His first geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). In 1540 he published a Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geographia with illustrations. The 1550 edition contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printed in Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographias. Claudius Ptolemy (arround 100- 160 a.C.) Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.

        PROCESSIONARIUS secundum ordinem Cisterciensem noviter impressus: correctus auctus et emendatus. Cum multis aliis additionibus nusque impressis.

      Caesar Augustae (Zaragoza), (à la fin:) Bartholomei a Nagera, 1550. - Petit in-8. 222ff. non chiffrés. Plein maroquin brun doublé, dos à nerfs orné, double filet doré sur les plats, doublure de maroquin havane guilloché à froid et encadré de filets et d'une guirlande dorée (reliure espagnole postérieure, vers 1950?). Précieuse édition de ce recueil des chants liturgiques qui étaient vocalisés pendant les processions des cisterciens espagnols. Elle fut imprimée à Saragosse avec la musique notée et peut être considérée comme la première édition complète du processionnal cistercien, car elle ne fut précédée que par un petit livret de 64 pages imprimé dans la même ville en 1516. Les processionnals sont des livres liturgiques contenant les paroles et la musique des chants qui accompagnaient les processions religieuses: essentiellement des répons, des antiennes et des hymnes. Il s'agit habituellement d'ouvrages manuscrits mais c'est principalement en Espagne, pays fortement attaché à la tradition des processions, que se développa au 16e siècle une activité éditoriale autour des processionnals. Le présent volume est rarissime. Nous n'avons pu en localiser que deux exemplaires complets (British Library et Washington University Pullman Library). En Espagne, les collections patrimoniales n'en répertorient que 4 exemplaires seulement, tous incomplets. Ordiozola, notamment, n'en connaissait aucun exemplaire complet. Belle impression gothique aux encres rouge et noire, avec la musique notée à chaque page. La gravure au verso du titre est légèrement épidermée avec d'infimes manques. Très bon exemplaire, malgré des marges un peu courtes par endroits. Palau, 238140.

        Theodori Bezae Vezelii Poemata Iuuenilia.

      small 8vo.62 ff., [2 (blank)]ff, ornamental woodcut border on title page, 17th or 18th century green morocco with attractive gilt decorated endpapers, board edges gilt patterned with a roll, edges gilt, satin ribbon marker, foreedge of title page a trifle clipped just shaving the woodcut border, fine fresh copy.Rare.Not in ADAMSVide Index Aureliensis [which gives in error (104)pp]. An apparently unauthorised reprint of the first edition of 1548. There is a variant of this edition omitting the word 'Iuvenilia' from the title page but otherwise apparently identical, and there is also a Lyon edition of circa 1550. Some sources date what appears to be this edition as "157-?" or "1580?". "Cette petite edition peu commune est une copie furtive de la [première] ... Celle de Lyon, sans date, ... parait en etre une reimpression" [Brunet]. "Poemata juvenilia .. 62ff.Mr.Clement .. pretend que cette edition ... est une contrefacon de la premiere de 1548" [Graesse]. Beze (1519-1605) during his days as a law student had developed a strong taste for poetry, and when he came to Paris in 1539 as a striking young man with a personal fortune he devoted more time to poetry, to scholarship, and to the pursuit of pleasure than to the advancement of his legal career. This phase of his life culminated in the publication by Conrad Badius in Paris in 1548 of the famous Poemata, a collection of highly skilled poems in the classical style. Much of the matter was uncontroversial but of the ninety eight Epigrams, which make up about half of the collection, many were galant or erotic. One poem in particular in which the author equivocates between a male and a female friend was to bring condemnation from both Catholic and Protestant quarters. Ironically also in 1548 Beze broke with his former life, espoused Protestantism, and fled with his wife to Geneva. There his talents soon made him a leader of the French Reformation, and second only to Calvin . On the question of his poems he was perhaps his own most severe critic. All the libertine items were excised from the 1569 second edition (and all thereafter) and Beza thoroughly castigated himself for his imprudence in writing them, but defended himself vigourously against the more serious charges of homosexuality stating that the offending Epigram was merely a pastiche of Horace on the subject "is friendship preferable to love". It remains however as one of the great ironies of the period that some of its more libertine and daring verse should emanate from a future leader of Calvinism, a sect whose very name has since come popularly to mean the avoidance of earthly pleasures. The words on the title page are within an ornamental woodcut border formed by two bent tree branch with 2 serpents coiled around them at the head, God in clouds holding 3 arrows at top, a crowned death's head at bottom, and the motto "Maligna loquuntur super me, mittentur in inferiora terre" written on the branches. Collates A-H? with the last two leaves blank. Frederic Gardy Bibliographie ... de Theodore de Beze, (Geneva: 1960) gives precedence to the 1548 Paris edition by Conrad Badius.

        Historia del Almirante. Spain, c. 1550.

      1550. Spanish ms. on vellum. 247 x 285 mm (written space 160 x 210 mm). 2 cols. 16 lines. With a large initial "L" in red, green, and blue on gold. Large illuminiation with rich gold and coloured tendril designs on reverse. The "Historia del Almirante", the story of the life of Christopher Columbus, is said to have been written around 1530 by his son Hernando Colón (1487-1539). The original manuscript is lost. The work was first printed in 1571 in Italian. The 1749 Spanish edition is merely a re-translation (cf. Sabin 14674) and thus contains many departures from the present ms. copy, which is obviously based on the original version. Judging by the style of the tendril initial (strongly rubbed), this ms. probably was created in the mid-16th century. The text begins, "Los rebeldes perseverando en su mal animo el Almirante resolvio enviar contre essos al Prefecto su hermano que con buenas palabras sgredviese a juicio y arrepentimento pero con compania hastante para que si quisiesen onfendere oudiese resistirlos" (the later printed version has: "Perseverando los rebeldes en su mal ánimo y propósito, llegaron hasta un cuarto de legua de los navíos, a un pueblo de indios llamado Maima, donde después edificaron los cristianos una cuidad llamada Sevilla.") - It could not be established whether the illumination on the reverse belongs to the original composition or is a later addition in contemporary style. The image does not fit the text well: it depicts three legendary scenes of the conquest of Brittany by a commander of Charlemagne in 799 (Brittany, personified by a female allegory "Armorica", and Charlemagne ["Karolus Fran(corum) Rex"] as a young ruler in Roman dress). - Margins of text page browned; some rubbing (initial rather strongly rubbed); edges of illumination slightly browned; gilding and colours (especially green) chipped.

        Tutte le opere. No place (Geneva?), "1550" [but c. 1635].

      1550. 4to. 5 parts in one volume. 8, 320, (4), 106 pp., (1 blank f.), (16), 280, 152, 158 pp. With 5 repeated title vignettes (woodcut portraits) and double-page-sized woodcut in the text. Contemp. vellum with msö spine title. Edges sprinkled. Early collected edition of Machiavelli's works, including his famous "Principe", the work with which he "founded the science of modern politics" by analysing Cesare Borgia's much-admired "mixture of audacity and prudence, cruelty and fraud, self-reliance and distrust of others" (PMM). This is the co-called "testina" edition, named after the author's woodcut portrait on all the half-titles. It is this very reliable redaction which is used by all quotations of the "Crusca". Five variant editions are known, all bearing the fictitious year of printing "1550" on the title page, through which the (most likely) Swiss publishers intended to circumvent the Papal prohibition. The present variant is usually regarded as the fourth (Bertelli/I.: "Databile al 1635-46"). Contains: 1) "Delle historie fiorentine"; 2) "Il Principe"; 3) "Discorsi"; 4) "Dell'Arte della Guerra"; 5) "L'Asino d'Oro" and other works. - Variously browned throughout due to paper (as common). From the library of Georg Philipp Helberg, secretary to the Electoral church council in Heidelberg and a member of the enlightened secret society "Deutsche Union" (his autograph ink ownership, dated 1787, on the title page). Bertelli/Innocenti 206a. Gamba p. 195, no. 623.3. Bonnant, p. 86f., D. Gerber II, 102f. Lenger, Machiavel, 19. Adams M 10. BM-STC Italian 400. Edit 16, CNCE 66076. GLN 6759. Malicki, BJ 16, M-4. Cf. PMM 63.
