1550 - 17 Antique prints, titled: '[Group of 20 woodcuts from a ca. 1550 Theuerdank edition].' - 20 woodcuts on 17 sheets. These woodcuts are all illustrations to Theuerdank, a poetic work composed by Emperor Maximilian I. Drawing on Arthurian romances, Theuerdank tells the fictionalised story in verse, of Maximilian (as Theuerdank) travelling to the Duchy of Burgundy to marry Mary of Burgundy (Erenreich), and the subsequent eight years of his life as ruler of the Duchy. The images show court scenes, landscapes, knights and adventures. An illustration from 'Theuerdank' (original title: "Die geverlicheiten vnd einsteils der geschichten des loblichen streytparen vnd hochberümbten helds vnd ritters herr Tewrdannckhs"). This work was published nine times between the first edition (1517) and 1693. We believe this page to be from a ca. 1550 edition. The (in total) 118 woodblocks for this sumptuous edition were mostly prepared by Jost de Negker after designs by Schaufelein, Burgkmair and Leonhard Beck. Woodcut on hand laid paper. Made by 'Jost de Negker' after 'Hans Burgkmair'. Jost de Negker (c. 1485-1544) was a woodblock cutter for woodcuts and print publisher. He was mostly active in Augsburg, Germany. He was the leading (reproductive) block cutter of his time, but always worked after designs of others. Hans Burgkmair the Elder (1473–1531) was a German painter and woodcut printmaker. He was a student of Martin Schongauer. Most of the woodcuts attributed to Burgkmair are book illustrations, as here. Fair, given age. Sold with all faults. The sheets quite damaged, with tears … [Click Below for Full Description]

Error in foliation: leaf cxix wrongly numbered cxx. ccclxxvii and ccclxxviii omited in pagination. 18th-century full calf, with gold lettering and tooling to spine. Raised bands. Decorative woodcut initials.Originally published in 1535, this book represents the first translation of the complete Bible into English."In 1534, following Pope Clement VII's refusal to approve the annulment of Henry VIII's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, the English Parliament, at the King's insistence, passed a series of acts that separated the English Church from the Roman hierarchy. In the following weeks, the Canterbury Convocation* petitioned for an English translation of the scriptures to be produced. By denying the supremacy of the Papacy, Henry VIII had raised the scriptures above the authority of Rome, making it imperative that they be published and the King as supreme ecclesiastical head reserved the sole right to authorize publication of an English Bible. It was Miles Coverdale (1488-1568) who was to produce this." (For more information, see: F. L. Cross & E. A. Livingstone's "The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church," OUP (1974), article: "Convocations of Canterbury and York")."The first edition of the Coverdale's Bible was printed, probably at Marburg, in 1535, and was inscribed to Henry, "our Moses." The translator sent copies of his Bible to England for review by the King. Henry VIII turned … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kolb, Lutheran ecclesiastical culture: 1550-1675, pp. 47-48; VD16, A2381 (A2382, the second issue). First issue of the first and only edition of a pamphlet on the "true Evangelical doctrine", by the German Lutheran theologian and reformer Nicolaus von Amsdorf (1483-1565). The pamphlet was published after Johann Pfeffinger held two disputations on the nature of free will. This pamphlet "... reproduced Pfeffinger's teaching in distorted form, maintaining that Pfeffinger and his colleagues had taught that human beings can prepare themselves for grace by their own free will and situate themselves so that God can give them grace..." (Kolb). The text is followed by a section against the "bitter falsehoods" as believed by Justus Menius (1499-1558) and others. Included at the end is a brief and sharp reply by Pfeffinger.A few marginal water stains, otherwise in very good condition.

After the murder of de Coligny during the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, the Duke of Alba took control of Mons in September 1572 in the name of the Catholic King of Spain. This spelled the ruin of the city and the arrest of many of its inhabitants; from 1580 to 1584, Mons became the capital of the Southern Netherlands. From 1697 to 1701, Mons was alternately French or Austrian. After being under French control from 1701 to 1709, the Dutch army gained the upper hand in the Battle of Malplaquet. In 1715, Mons returned to Austria under the terms of the Treaty of Utrecht (1713). But the French did not give up easily; Louis XV besieged the city again in 1746. After the Battle of Jemappes (1792), the Hainaut area was annexed to France and Mons became the capital of the Jemappes district. Following the fall of the First French Empire in 1814, King William I of the Netherlands fortified the city heavily. In 1830, however, … [Click Below for Full Description]

AMSDORF, Nicolaus von.
, . . Kolb, Lutheran ecclesiastical culture: 1550-1675, pp. 47-48; VD16, A2381 (A2382, the second issue). First issue of the first and only edition of a pamphlet on the "true Evangelical doctrine", by the German Lutheran theologian and reformer Nicolaus von Amsdorf (1483-1565). The pamphlet was published after Johann Pfeffinger held two disputations on the nature of free will. This pamphlet "... reproduced Pfeffinger's teaching in distorted form, maintaining that Pfeffinger and his colleagues had taught that human beings can prepare themselves for grace by their own free will and situate themselves so that God can give them grace..." (Kolb). The text is followed by a section against the "bitter falsehoods" as believed by Justus Menius (1499-1558) and others. Included at the end is a brief and sharp reply by Pfeffinger.A few marginal water stains, otherwise in very good condition.

ABDIAS, the first bishop of Babylon [misatribution].
KVK & Worldcat (1 copy, lacking 4 ll.); cf. Belg. Typogr. 5, 6, 7740; Machiels 5-8;USTC 407639, 409815, 409817. Most complete copy known (the only other lacking 4 leaves) of the last edition of the very rare Dutch translation by Jan vanden Bosch, alias Berckelaer, of lives of the twelve Apostles, supposedly written in Hebrew in the first century AD by Abdias, the first bishop of Babylon and an associate of the Apostles Simon and Jude. Pope Paul IV declared it apocryphal in the 1550s, and modern scholars support this, suggesting that the work was compiled from various sources (some now surviving and some not) in the late sixth century. The text is now important both for preserving information from some early sources that have not survived and for its influence on later Christians. It is also important as an extremely rare edition by the Antwerp printer Matthias van Roye and publisher Hendrik Wouters. The fact that Jan vanden Bosch translated the Latin into Dutch and published it about ten years after the Pope declared the text apocryphal shows that its popularity and influence could not easily be countered. Peeter van Keerberghen first printed and published the Dutch translation at Antwerp in 1567. We have located only 8 copies counting all editions together, including the incomplete ones. The present Dutch translation first appeared at the height of the religious turmoil that was sweeping through the Low Countries, culminating in the iconoclasm of the years 1566-1568. Lacking one bifolium, but it must have been lost soon after the book was published, for it was replaced at … [Click Below for Full Description]

Regiomontanus, Johannes.
Tübingen Morhard, 1550. (22 x 16 cm). 157 nn. Bll. Mit Holzschnitt-Titelvignette. Moderner Pergamentband im Stil der Zeit. Seltene Ausgabe seines beliebten, 1475 erstmals erschienenen Werkes, das besonders für die Berechnung von Horoskopen wichtig war. - Für die Deutung von Horoskopen spielt die Unterteilung des Himmels in Abschnitte, die sogenannten "Häuser", eine herausragende Rolle, da sie die Vorhersagen stark beeinflussen. Regiomontanus führt dazu eine selten gebrauchte Zählung der Häuser, beginnend am Ostpunkt des Horizonts, ein und berechnet die vorliegenden Tafeln. Mit ihrer Hilfe lassen sich die Häusergrenzen jeweils exakter bestimmen. Mathematisch gesehen handelt es sich dabei um eine Anleitung und Tafeln zur Umrechnung sphärischer Koordinaten. - "Dieses 'Tabulae directionum' genannte Werk enthält in der Hauptsache die Tafeln zur Berechnung der Häusergrenzen mit den zugehörigen Gebrauchsanweisungen. Im 14. Abschnitt kam er auf die verschiedenen Arten der Häuserberechnung zu sprechen. Unter Auslassung der ältesten und einfachsten Art, nämlich den Tierkreis in 12 gleiche Teile. zu teilen, welches Verfahren sogar noch Cardano anwendete, beschrieb er die 3 wichtigsten Einteilungen des Himmels. zugleich lieferte er alle Tafeln, die zur Berechnung eines Horoskopes, abgesehen von den Planetenörtern, nötig waren und lehrte in den Erklärungen an Hand von Beispielen die Benützung dieser Tafeln" (Zinner). - Regiomontanus war Professor für Astronomie und u.a. beteiligt an der von Sixtus IV. geplanten Kalenderreform. - Gestochenes Exlibris.

Artist: Münster Sebastian ca ; issued in: Basle; date: ca1550 - - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 26 x 18; - description: Map shows the city of Neaple as birds eye view.; - 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.

Antica firma di possesso al titolo ed ex libris a stampa al contropiatto anteriore (del maestro di scherma Garibaldi Geraci). Antichi segni di inchiostro al titolo; sporadiche, non gravi macchioline e tracce d'uso. Buon esemplare. Terza edizione del più importante trattato italiano di scherma del Cinquecento, e primo vero trattato sistematico e completo di scherma moderna, la cui fortuna è testimoniata dalle molte edizioni che si susseguirono nel corso del secolo. L'edizione veneziana del 1517, citata da alcune bibliografie come prima, è in realtà ormai riconosciuta come una ristampa del Sessa della fine del '500. Le 84 xilografie, in questa edizione "più fresche" che nella prima (Modena 1536), per il resto identica (cfr. Gelli), rappresentano schermidori nelle diverse figure e posizioni e sono state attribuite a Francesco Barattini o a Giovanni Britto (il monogramma "b" è ben visibile su alcune di esse). Achille Marozzo (1484 - 1553) è considerato uno dei più importanti maestri della "Scuola bolognese" ed è riconosciuto come il "padre della scherma europea" (Sticca). Fu allievo di Guido Antonio de Luca che fu maestro, tra gli altri, anche di uomini d'arme quali Giovanni dalle Bande Nere e Guido Rangoni, dedicatario dell'opera. Thimm, p. 181. Vigeant, pp. 89 - 90.

Piena pergamena rigida secentesca, titolo manoscritto al dorso; tagli marezzati. Le due opere vennero originariamente editate separatamente, raramente si trovano esemplari completi delle due parti congiunte. La prima contiene Rime e Trionfi.La seconda opera, tratta dell'indice delle parole usate dal Petrarca (Gamba, 718) anche se è più simile a un Dizionario autonomo, che a un Indice vero e proprio. L'opera e' preceduta da una faceta "lettera del Petrarca" all'Alunno.In calce troviamo la Risposta dell'Alunno al Petrarca.Il Poeta, con toni allarmati, dichiara di essere "crocifisso mille volte al giorno" e con lui Boccaccio, Dante e Ariosto, dagli "anatomisti" delle loro opere, per cui (annunciando, per ufficializzare l'incarico, il prossimo invio dalle "verdi, e famose selve" dei Campi Elisi di una "procura in forma autentica"), implora alla gentilezza dell'A. la stesura di una nuova edizione delle Osservationi, non solo contenente il "riporto de' numeri delle carte, e de' versi", bensi' aumentata di una spiegazione piu' esaustiva dei vari termini. Interessante il commento ed indice dell'Alunno all'opera di Petrarca.

"The first printed translation of the Qur'an at all. The text of the Latin Koran translated by Bibliander comes from an Arabic manuscript, which was acquired in the 12th century by Pierre de Cluny and Bernard of Clairvaux on the occasion of their visit to Toledo.
