        BLUMENSTUNDENBUCH SIMON BENING - Faksimile Luzern

      Faksimile Verlag, Luzern 1991 - Hier verkaufen wir das Faksimile des Blumenstundenbuches von Simon Bening - 16. Jahrhundert – Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, München, Clm 23637. Herausgeber war: Faksimile Verlag Luzern. Gedruckt wurde es im Jahr 1991 - limitierte Auflage von nur 980 Stücken! - Faksimile & Kommentarband im Acrylglasschuber; stammt aus sehr gepflegtem Nichtraucherhaushalt; ungelesenes Stück; Entstehung des Originals: zwischen 1520 und 1525 in Gent oder Brügge; Faksimileband umfaßt 438 Seiten; Maße: ca.17,3 x 13 cm; 70 Miniaturseiten und über 300 Seiten mit einer Fülle an Buchschmuck (vor allem mit Blumen, aber auch Vögeln und anderem Getier, ausgestattet); roter Samteinband; 3-Seiten-Goldschnitt; streng limitierte Auflage von 980 numerierten Exemplaren; Exemplar trägt Nr. 954 - Kommentarband, anläßlich der Faksimilierung der Handschrift verfaßt, enthält auf 431 Seiten die neuesten Untersuchungen anerkannter Experten: Prof. Dr. Eberhard König, Berlin, und Dr. Bodo Brinkmann (ebenfalls absolut ungelesen), Acrylglasschuber (Verwendung eines Bsp.-fotos eines bereits verkauften Exemplars) - Das Blumen-Stundenbuch von Simon Bening gehört zu den schönsten Werken der Buchmalerei. Es demonstriert eindrucksvoll den hohen Rang der flämischen Buchkunst des 16. Jahrhunderts. Zwei Besonderheiten heben dieses Meisterwerk unter allen Stundenbüchern hervor: zum einen das lockere Streumuster von Blumen oder Vögeln, das jede Textseite ziert; zum anderen die vielen unterschiedlichen Formen der Seitengestaltung innerhalb einer Handschrift. Deshalb gilt dieses Werk in seiner Gestaltungsvielfalt als unübertroffener Höhepunkt seiner Zeit. Simon Bening stammte aus einer Künstlerfamilie. Schon sein Vater war Buchmaler, es läßt sich jedoch kein Werk eindeutig mit ihm in Verbindung bringen. Simon war ohne Zweifel der berühmteste Buchmaler seiner Zeit. Er wurde 1483, vermutlich in Gent, geboren. 1500 scheint er schon künstlerisch tätig gewesen zu sein. In den Jahren bis 1519, als er das Bürgerrecht von Brügge erwarb, war er offensichtlich sowohl dort als auch in Gent tätig. Er war zweimal verheiratet und hatte insgesamt fünf Töchter. Im Alter von 78 Jahren verstarb er im Jahre 1561. Wie bei Stundenbüchern allgemein üblich, beginnt die Handschrift auch hier mit einem Kalender. Danach folgt ein Eröffnungsgebet, an das sich Auszüge aus den vier Evangelien anschließen. Danach sind sieben verschiedene Gebetsstunden eingefügt, die jeweils das Passionsgeschehen veranschaulichen; der Bericht folgt vollständig dem Bericht des Evangelisten Johannes. Das Kernstück des Stundenbuches ist aber das Marienoffizium, das sich aus biblischen Texten wie etwa Psalmen zusammensetzt. Abgeschlossen wird das Werk durch die sieben Bußpsalmen, eine Litanei, ein Totenoffizium sowie verschiedene Gebete an die Trinität, an Maria und einige Heilige. Der Text folgt dem Gebrauch nach Rom und engt daher die Verwendung des Stundenbuchs nicht ein. Es konnte gleichsam "international" verwendet werden, ohne lokale Einschränkungen befürchten zu müssen. Die Schrift des Stundenbuches, eine Gotica Rotunda, ist durchgehend einheitlich und daher höchstwahrscheinlich von nur einem Schreiber aufgezeichnet worden. Erwerben Sie hier eine wahre Rarität. Das Werk ist absolut ungelesen! Sprache: deu

        Istoria Leonardo: What Happened to Leonardo?

      New York:: Marilyn R. Rosenberg,, 1991.. One-of-a-Kind. 8.5 x 5.5"; 70 pages. Mixed papers. Media: water color, collage, drawing, photos, color pencil, reflective mylar. Handsewn exposed binding with paper-covered boards. Dust wrapper with illustration by artist. Laid in four-flap phase box with velcro closure. Marilyn R. Rosenberg: "A visual narrative of more than 65 layered and interfolded pages. Thin transparent papers see forward and backward. On the reverse, words are reversed, like Leonardo's. On color heavy pages, relationships between places and Leonardo's imagery are discovered. His ideas are reflected reflections. "[I], in collaboration with Leonardo, and with the many others that commented about him, create him in the context of his and our time. Information was sorted out from in-depth research. A variety of media ... brings Leonardo alive. Old computer symbols act as a code, a sub-text throughout, revealed at the end." Introduction: "A retrace and a recast ?- The reticular responsive recounting re-creation of the re-invention of Leonardo Da Vinci." Ori Z. Soltes, "Jewish American Painters in the Twentieth Century": "Marilyn R. Rosenberg's Istoria Leonardo: What Happened to Leonardo? explores the ultimate exemplum of pure intellect, overrunning her sheets of handmade paper with quotations from the artist-scientist's notebooks, with imagery and sketches and notations and observations. She is the notator and observer of the ultimate observer and notator. It is a book about a dyslexic whose words and images are turned upside down and backwards, and about the question of what it means to be different or to do things differently, whether one is a woman, a Jew, a dyslexic, or a Leonardo.

      Phillip J. Pirages, McMinnville, OR 1991 - folio. full stamped leather binding by Middleton, clamshell box, paper spine label. 128, (2) pages. First edition, one of 231 copies of total edition of 239; this copy is not numbered and bears the following note in pencil by Henry Morris on the colophon page "Printer's Copy (No.IX) Bound by Bernard Middleton, April 1981 for Henry Morris (Berger B38). Pirages sold 8 copies bound as thus with a leaf with COLORED INITIALS for $1800. I had permission to have Middleton bind a copy for me. I sneaked into him for blind-stamp 'printer's copy' at base of spine. You might say this is the unique printer's copy." Aside from Gutenberg and his immediate associates, there are no figures more important in the early history of printing than Sweynheym and Pannartz, the earliest printers outside Germany. First at Subiaco and later in Rome, they produced an imposing catalogue of first editions of ancient authors, which for the first time systematically exploited the potential of the new technology as a means for disseminating humanistic texts to a large audience. This volume is the first book to create from the available information a broadly based and detailed picture of the activities of these two printers. The work examines in a full and careful way their lives and achievements within the context of their newly developed craft as well as the humanistic environment they encountered in Rome in the 1460s and 1470s. In the process of his account, Professor Hall challenges a number of widely held assumptions about the origins of printing in Italy. The book is printed on luxurious mouldmade Frankfurt paper by Henry Morris at the Bird & Bull Press and is accompanied by a large folio Sweynheym & Pannartz leaf from the 1471 printing of Nicholas of Lyra's Postilla super totam Bibliam. The 14 1/2 x 10 1/2" leaves, which were purchased as a disbound and discontinuous fragment of one volume of Lyra's five-volume work, are in remarkably bright and fresh condition, and they show to good advantage the famous and beautiful type Sweynheym and Pannartz first used in 1467, recognized now as the earliest truly Roman font. Even though Sweynheym and Pannartz produced more than fifty different editions, their press runs were normally only 275 copies. Consequently, their books are now very rare, and complete copies are extravagantly priced. The present leaf book offers an uncommon opportunity for research libraries as well as collectors interested in early printing or in private press work and the book arts to obtain an example of the work of Sweynheym and Pannartz in a form that is handsomely produced and at the same time not prohibitively expensive. The book and leaf, which is secured in a mylar envelope behind a hinged cloth mat, are contained in an impressive (15 1/2 x 11 3/4") navy blue folding cloth box constructed of acid-free materials by Nancy Cuthbert. Title page printed in black, red, and blue. With an additional note by Morris loosely inserted. Slipcase is faded. full stamped leather binding by Middleton, clamshell box, paper spine label [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
