Munster, Sebastian
Heinrich Petri, Basel 1550 - Munster's map of Greece & Turkey, based upon Claudius Ptolemy which appeared in his "Geographia Universalis", first published in 1540 which includes the region west of the Black Sea and north of the Aegean and Adriatic Seas.

Sebastian Munster (1488 - 1552), was an eminent mathematician and geographer, as well as professor of Hebrew at Basel University & produced his own version of Ptolemy's Geographia in 1540, after having produced a more basic world representation in conjunction with Hans Holbein in 1532. Uncolored, woodblock map with Latin text on verso, 13.5 x 10.5 inches. [Attributes: First Edition]

Lampridio, Benedetto.
apud Gabrielem Iolitum de Ferrariis [Giolito], 1550. Collection of 39 Latin poems -- 24 odes in Pindaric meter, seven in Horatian meter, three letters in hexameter, and five epigrams -- by Benedetto Lampridio (1478-1539) in praise of illustrious friends. The Carmina was published posthumously together with the poems of G.B. Amalteo by the Venetian polygraph Ludovico Dolce (1508-68), who addresses the collection to Count Collatino da Collalto in not one but two dedications. Lampridio earned his scholarly reputation and his living as a personal tutor of Greek and Latin to the rich and famous, among others the sons of Pietro Bembo and Federico II Gonzaga. He was highly respected during his lifetime, especially among the Paduan humanists, and ultimately world-famous for being the => first to use Pindaric meter in modern poetry. Lampridio's poems herein emulate the style not only of Pindar, but also of Horace, and Amalteo's verses follow the style of Theocritus, Virgil, and Tibullus (Dolce naming these influences in his second dedication). The handsome title-page features the Giolito device. Historiated initials, well-inked and admirably detailed, begin each of the 39 carme, which are printed in italic with capitals for headlines and the beginnings of verses; these latter initials float in the margin just apart from the text. Provenance: 16th-century signature of Nicolai Pengrini(?) on the title-page.Later in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).

Domenico VITUS
Acquaforte e bulino, 1550-60 circa, firmato in basso al centro "dominicus v." Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Primo stato di due, avanti l’indirizzo di Giacomo Lauro. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "ancora nel cerchio", rifilata al rame, in ottimo sttao id conservazione. L’incisione riproduce, in controparte, un’acquaforte di Giovanni Battista Franco che traduce in stampa uno studio preparatorio, se non addirittura il modello, oggi perduto, realizzato da Raffaello per uno dei cartoni commissionati da papa Leone X per gli arazzi della Cappella Sistina, raffigurante Pietro e Giovanni guariscono un paralitico. Il soggetto ispirò anche un’acquaforte del Parmigianino. La scena mostra al centro Pietro che afferra il braccio di un uomo zoppo al quale cordina di alzarsi e camminare. L'uomo viene così miracolosamente immediatamente guarito e torna a camminare di nuovo. Accanto a Pietro è la figura di Giovanni Evangelista che osserva il miracolo. Le colonne di un tempio hanno l’effetto di scomporre la scena in e di conferire profondità. Ai lati della scena centrale, sono raffigurate delle donne che vengono a purificarsi dopo aver dato alla luce dei bimbi maschi. Opera molto rara nel primo stato edito da Domenico Vito. Sconosciuta ai principali repertori. Engraving, 1550-60, inscribed lower left 'rafael invenctor' in centre 'dominicus v'. After Raphael. First state, of two, before Giacomo Lauro’s publisher address. Good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with "anchor in a circle" watermark, just worn on the left, otherwise in ve … [Click Below for Full Description]

MANUEL, Hans Rudolf
Munster, 1550. Map. Woodblock engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 11" x 13.5". This bird's-eye view of Basel shows the city as it is structured around the Rhine River. A key in the lower left lists prominent locations according to letters scattered on the map. The generalized style of many of the buildings allow finer architectural detail in churches, fountains, and city walls to stand out. A few outsized figures and animals can be seen throughout, working in the fields and rowing down the quickly flowing Rhine. The map is from the 1550 edition of Sebastian Munster's "Cosmographia," a text that, when first published in 1544, was the earliest German description of the world. It quickly became one of the most successful books of the 16th century and was published in 24 editions. On the back is an elaborate title for "Die Statt Basell" and descriptive text with some small pictures. Basel, in fact, was Munster's home city as of 1529, when he moved there to work as a Professor of Hebrew at Basel University. This history makes this map of Basel of particular historical significance beyond its appealing aesthetics. The map is in excellent condition with no tears and wide margins as issued. Fine impression. Small chip to lower left corner not affecting the image. Sebastian Munster (1488--1552) was a German cartographer, cosmographer, and Hebrew scholar famed for participating in the revival of geographic thought in 16th-century Europe. Hans Rudolf Manuel (1525-1571) was a painter, designer and poet whose topographical views of cities for "Cosmographia" were greatly accl … [Click Below for Full Description]

René BOYVIN
1550. Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1540/50, privo di data ed elementi editoriali. Da un soggetto di Luca Penni o Rosso Fiorentino. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera, molto rara, è attribuita al Boyvin da Robert-Dumesnil che non chiarisce se derivi da un disegno del Penni o del Rosso. Renè Boyvin è incisore, acquafortista e disegnatore francese. Vasari, nella sua Vita di Marcantonio Raimondi, dice che "dopo la morte di Rosso [Fiorentino], assistiamo all’arrivo dalla Francia di tutte incisioni dei suoi lavori". Vasari attribuì questa abbondanza di riproduzioni "all’incisore in rame René", ovvero René Boyvin. Questi si trasferì a Parigi nel 1545 circa da Agers, dove incontrò Antonio Fantuzzi e dove si dice abbia rinnovato il contratto di servizio con l’incisore Pierre Milan nel 1549. Successivamente, aprì il suo studio presso il quale lavorò anche Lorenzo Penni, figlio di Luca. Boyvin visse a lungo, malgrado la prigionia a cui venne costretto a causa del suo credo Calvinista. Etching and engraving, circa 1540/50, without any details. After Luca Penni or Rosso Fiorentino. A great impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, in very good conditions. The work, very rare, is attributed to Boyvin by Robert-Dumesnil who does not clarify if it derives from a drawing of Penni or Rosso Fiorentino. Renè Boyvin is a French engraver, etcher and draftsma. Vasari, in his Life of Marcantonio Raimondi, says that "dopo la morte di Rosso [Fiorentino], assistiamo all’arrivo dalla Francia di tut … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basilea. Pianta della città tratta dalla "Cosmographia" di Muenster. La più antica pianta a stampa di Cagliari venne inserita nella Cosmographia Universalis di Sebastian Münster a partire dalle edizioni latina e tedesca del 1550. Essa era opera del cagliaritano Sigismondo Arquer, autore anche di una famosa carta della Sardegna e di un trattatello, la Sardiniae brevis historiae et descriptio, che entrarono tutte a far parte della Cosmografia del Münster. La città di Cagliari appare interamente cinta dalle sue mura e divisa nei quattro quartieri storici: il Castello, che rappresenta il cuore della città, al centro, Stampax (l'odierna Stampace) a Ovest, Nova Villa (Villanova) a Est, Gliapola (Marina) a sud. Sono inoltre segnati sulla carta i principali monumenti ed edifici della città, ciascuno esattamente individuato per mezzo di una lettera dell'alfabeto alla quale corrisponde, in una legenda posta in calce al disegno, il nome dell'edificio. Il titolo della pianta è sulla sinistra, all'interno di un nastro svolazzante. Nell'angolo in alto è anche uno stemma con l'araldica aragonese, che verrà sostituita nelle imitazioni seicentesche da quella spagnola. La pianta si trova inserita alla pagina 621 della Cosmografia, la cui intestazione recita: Von Italia. / Calaris die hauptstatt in Sardinia; sul retro, alla pagina 622 c'è la descrizione della Sardegna in lingua tedesca. Si tratta dunque di una riedizione in questa lingua pubblicata alla fine del Cinquecento Xilografia in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 180 185mm

Antonio SALAMANCA
Straordinaria ricostruzione fantastica del Campidoglio, stampata su tre lastre ed edita per la prima volta dal Salamanca circa nel 1550. L’esemplare che qui presentiamo reca l’indirizzo degli eredi di Claude Duchet (Duchetti) e la data 1591. Il Duchet era il nipote del Lafrery ed alla morte di questi, 1577, ereditò la tipografia. La composizione somiglia ai disegni modenesi del Marcanova, soprattutto nella ricostruzione del Campidoglio e nella raffigurazione dei palazzi di Cicerone e Crasso. Tuttavia i particolari dell’incisione dimostrano una conoscenza più matura dell’architettura antica. Bulino, impresso su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scudo con lettera M e stella", rifilata irregolarmente al rame, lievi restauri perfettamente eseguiti nella parte superiore, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Di grandissima rarità. Bibliografia: Huelsen p. 41; La Roma del Cinquecento nello Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae pp. 10, 135. Extraordinary imaginary view of the Camidoglio, realized on three sheets and printed for the first time by Salamanca in 1550. This particular example bears the address of Claude Duchet’s heirs (Duchetti) and the date of 1591. Duchet was Lafrery’s nephew/grandchild and when he died in 1577 he inherited his business. The composition recalls Marcanova’s drawings, especially the Campidoglio and the buildings of Cicerone and Crasso. However, the details show a deep and mature knowledge of antique architecture. Engraving, printed on contemporary laid paper with "shiled with letter M and star" watermark, irregularly trimmed to platemark, small re … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antonio SALAMANCA (Milano ?, 1478 - Roma, 1562)
Bulino, circa 1550, senza firma né data. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "due frecce con stella", rifilata al rame e con margini coevi aggiunti, in perfetto stato di conservazione. La prima rappresentazione a stampa della Toscana è dovuta al nobile senese Girolamo Bellarmati, architetto militare, ingegnere e matematico che diede alle stampe, nel 1536, una grande carta in 4 fogli con matrice silografica. La mappa ebbe un successo incredibile e venne subito ripresa da Matteo Pagano, che ne fece una riduzione a Venezia nel 1550 circa. Allo stesso periodo risale questa ristampa romana, priva di data ed editore, ma stilisticamente attribuibile alla tipografia di Antonio Salamanca. L'opera appare come una riduzione del rilievo del Bellarmati, ma più appetibile dal punto di vista commerciale, date le misure ridotte e la migliore resa visiva dell'incisione in rame rispetto alla xilografia. La mappa conserva la forma trapezioidale tipica delle tavole tolemaiche, e presente nell'originale del Bellarmati, ed è caratterizzata da un cartiglio con il titolo, curioso, per la calcografia romana del tempo. La carta risulta simile a quella del 1558 edita da Lafrery, rispetto alla quale tuttavia crediamo sia anteriore. Una successiva versione di questa mappa, impressa dalla tipografia Salamanca & Lafrery, venne alla luce verso il 1560. Probabile che la Sacra Tuscia sia riconducibile al periodo immediatamente precedente al 1553, anno nel quale il Salamanca decise di associarsi con il Lafrery dopo svariati anni di accesa rivalità. Rara e desiderabil … [Click Below for Full Description]

Matthias Gerung
Xilografia, 1550, datata e monogrammata in tavola in basso. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, completa della parte incisa, lieve piega di carta all’angolo superiore destro, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione. Matthias Gerung, nella vecchia letteratura Geron Mathias, è stato un pittore tedesco e incisore. Era probabilmente il figlio del violinista Matthias e allievo di Hans Schaufelin, sebbene qualcuno dica di Hans Burgkmair . Oltre ad essere un pittore, è anche conosciuto come maestro nell’intaglio silografico, soprattutto per l'illustrazione della Bibbia di Ottheinrich , che è uno dei più preziosi manoscritti miniati del mondo. Il Nagler gli attribuisce 23 lavori differenti, alcuni dei quali multipli, per la maggior parte a carattere religioso, non citando quest’opera. Sebbene priva della classica scena dell’uccisione del drago, questo lavoro sembrerebbe rappresentare San Giorgio, Santo - cavaliere che più di ogni altro ha rappresentato l’ideologia cavalleresca, difensore degli innocenti e antagonista vittorioso sul Male. Woodcut, 1550, dated and signed in the woodblock. A magnificent impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark unreadable, showing the borderline. slight crease of paper upper right corner, otherwise in perfect condition. Matthias Gerung, in older literature Geron Mathias, was a German painter and printmaker. It was probably the son of the violinist Matthias and pupil of Han Schaufelin, although someone says Hans Burgkmair. In addition to being a painter, is also known as master of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hieronymus HOPFER
1550. Acquaforte su ferro, firmata in lastra al centro. Da un soggetto di Albrecht Dürer. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti il numero. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "piccolo stemma araldico", rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione deriva dall’analoga incisione di Dürer, databile al 1496 circa, realizzata al ritorno dal suo primo viaggio in Italia. In precedenza, l’iconografia classica del Santo nel Nord Europa non contemplava la sua raffigurazione nel deserto. San Girolamo trascorse quattro anni nel deserto siriano da eremita, praticando un rigoroso ascetismo e percuotendosi il petto per sfuggire alle tentazioni. La pietra con la quale si percuote è un’invenzione posteriore, mentre il leone e il Crocifisso sono due degli elementi ricorrenti nell’iconografia. Nell’incisione sono presenti alcune macchiette, soprattutto nei bordi, dovute all’ossidazione della lastra di ferro. Contrariamente agli altri maestri del bulino attivi a Norimberga, Hieronimus Hopfer era solito realizzare le proprie incisioni all’acquaforte e su lastra di ferro anziché di rame. Esemplari di primo stato sono assolutamente rari. Ex collezione G. Usslaub (Lugt 1221) Etching on iron, signed on plate in the center. After Albrecht Dürer. Example in the first state of two, before the number. A beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "small coat of arms", trimmed on copperplate, in excellent condition. The composition derives from the analogous engraving by Dürer, dated to about 1496, made after his return fro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Enea VICO
Bulino, 1550 circa. Da un soggetto di Polidoro da Caravaggio. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini, applicata su antico supporto di collezione, in buono stato di conservazione. L’opera appartiene ad una serie che è catalogata nell’indice delle stampe di Antonio Lafrery del 1573 sotto il nome di Libro de Trofei cavati da disegni di Polidoro ad imitazione de gli Antichi. Alla morte del Lafrery (1577), le lastre passarono al nipote Claudio Duchetti e quindi a Paolo Graziani e Pietro de’ Nobili. Nell’inventario di quest’ultimo, risalente al 1584, la serie risulta essere di sedici stampe. Tuttavia le lastre risalgono al periodo 1550/53 e sono il frutto della rivalità prima, e fusione poi, delle tipografie di Antonio Salamanca e Antonio Lafrery. Bartsch attribuisce le incisioni ad Enea Vico. Rara. Engraving, about 1550. After Polidoro da Caravaggio. Good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with thin margins, laid down an antique mounting, in good condition. This work belong to a series that is listed in the index of prints by Antonio Lafrery of 1573 under the name of Libro de Trofei cavati da disegni di Polidoro ad imitazione de gli Antichi. On the death of Lafrery (1577), the plates passed to his nephew Claudio Duchetti and then to Paul Graziani and Pietro de 'Nobili. In the inventory of the latter dating back to 1584, the series turns out to be sixteen prints.

Bulino, 1550, firmato in lastra in alto al centro e datato in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare del primo stato di due, avanti l’indirizzo di Lafrery in basso a destra. Bellissima prova di questa rara incisione, impressa su carta vergata coeva recante la filigrana "balestra in un cerchio sormontato dal giglio" (Briquet 760 databile alla prima metà del XVI secolo), rifilata al rame, piccolissimi restauri perfettamente eseguiti, tracce di piega di carta al centro, nel complesso in eccellente stato di conservazione.

Münster Sebastian (1489 - 1552) Basel
Artist: Münster Sebastian ca ; issued in: Basle; date: ca1550 - - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 25 x 16; - description: Map shows Africa with view of a volcano/on reverse a hound dog and grape vines. On reverse a typical population with agriculture, trade and hunting.; - vita of the artist: Sebastian Münster (1488 ? 1552) belongs to the very important Comographers of the Renaicance. He issued his first famous Cosmographia in 1544 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.
