        Gebetbuch für Kardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg. Gabriel Glockendon. Nürnberg 1536/37. Codex 1847 der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek Wien. [Samt Kommentarband]: Dagmar Thoss: Kommentarband zum Gebetbuch für Kardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg.,

      Münster: Bibliotheca Rara 2008 - Faksimileband: 103 Blätter (100 davon foliiert); Kommentarband: 61 (1) Seiten mit 36 Abbildungen. Prachtvolle und aufwendig im Stil der Zeit gestaltete, limitierte Faksimile-Ausgabe. Erschienen in nur 998 von Hand nummerierten Exemplaren. Dieses Exemplar trägt die handschriftlich eingetragene Nummer 108. Das hier als Faksimile herausgegebene Gebetbuch wurde seinerzeit von Kardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg (1490-1545) in Auftrag gegeben und 1537 fertiggestellt. Die in deutscher Sprache verfasste Handschrift gehört zu einer Gruppe von insgesamt drei Gebetbüchern, die der bedeutende Kunstmäzen führenden Künstlern des Metiers zur Ausstattung übertragen hatte. Sie "repräsentiert einen relativ jungen Typus im Bereich des für Laien konzipierten Andachtsbuches, der in dieser Form erst in der ersten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts und nur im deutschsprachigen Raum in Erscheinung tritt. Gleichwohl ruht seine Konzeption auf einem Werk des 15. Jahrhunderts", bei welchem "Thomas a Kempis, der führende Vertreter der als devotio moderna bezeichneten Frömmigkeitsbewegung, als Autor des Textes namhaft gemacht werden [konnte]." (Dagmar Thoss, Kommentarband, S. 11.). Die 42 ganzseitigen Miniaturen zu Szenen aus dem Neuen Testament stammen vom Nürnberger Buchmaler Gabriel Glockendon, einem der Söhne des Nikolaus Glockendon, welcher das Gewerbe der Nürnberger Buchmalerzunft seinerzeit dominierte. Der Text, das dekorative Randdekor und die zierenden Bordüren stammen von Georg Stierlein. Zu Beginn des 17. Jahrhunderts gelangte die Handschrift als Schenkung in den Besitz Kaiser Ferdinands II. und somit Eingang in die Kaiserliche Hofbibliothek. Der spätere, in vorliegender Ausgabe hervorragend nachempfundene Einband ist signiert und datiert: Braunes Kalbsleder mit dem Doppeladler, Monogramm der Hofbibliothek und dem Monogramm des damaligen Präfekten Gerard Freiherr van Swieten (1745-1772): E.A.B.C.V. = Ex Augustissima Bibliotheca Caesarea Vindobonensi / G.L.B.V.S.B. = Gerardus Liber Baro Van Swieten Bibliothecarius / 1755. - Exemplar in tadellosem Zustand. - Faksimileband mit fundiertem Kommentarband im Schuber.

      2008. Michigan Law Review. Ann Arbor, Michigan: Michigan Law Review Association. Vols. 80 to 106 (1981-2008). Vols. 80 to 100 black library binding in 58 books; vols. 100 no. 7 to 106 in 50 unbound issues. Ex-library, very good condition. * Founded in 1902, the Review is the sixth oldest legal journal in the country. It was originally was intended as a forum in which the faculty of the Law Department could publish its legal scholarship. The faculty resolution creating the Review required every faculty member to submit two articles per year to the new journal. From its inception until 1940, the Review's student members worked under the direction of faculty members who served as Editor-in-Chief. In 1940, the first student Editor-in-Chief was selected. During the years that followed, student editors were given increasing responsibility and autonomy. Today, the Review is run with no faculty supervision. Seven of each volume's eight issues ordinarily are composed of two major parts: Articles by legal scholars and practitioners and Notes written by the student editors. One issue in each volume is devoted to book reviews. Occasionally special issues are devoted to symposia or colloquia..

Designed by Hans Werner Holzwarth. "Christopher Wool became known in the mid-1980s through paintings produced with rubber rollers commonly used to simulate decorative wallpaper patterns on walls. By 1988 he had hit stride with his dry, dead-pan word paintings while continuing to explore the possibilities of pattern painting. Since the 1990s, he has been developing the painterly qualities of his work, using a mostly black-and-white palette, starting from abstract lines drawn with a spray gun or layered stock images, overpainting silkscreens on linen, wiping out images, with a widening variety of media, a process that can involve photography, silkscreen, and, in the new millennium, also the computer. This monograph is staggering in scope and depth, exploring Wool’s work in large-scale reproductions, production Polaroids, and installation photos by Wool himself".

        DURAZZO BOOK OF HOURS * Limited Facsimile Edition * Manuscript m.r. C.f. Arm. I Biblioteca Civica Berio (Genoa, Italy) * Facsimile Edition: 1 volume * Commentary: 1 volume * Mint copy

      Franco Cosimo Panini Editore, Modena - 2008. THE DURAZZO BOOK OF HOURS - A masterpiece in purple and gold * * * The Durazzo Book of Hours is named after its last owner from the Genoese noble family of Durazzo. Two features make this book of hours a unique treasure: Its leaves are purple watered parchment and it is completely written in gold ink. Francesco Marmitta (1462/1466 to about 1505), a versatile artist from Parma (Italy) has illuminated the manuscript. Antonio Sallando, a lecturer at the University of Bologna, cared for the well-proportioned handwriting. * * * As marvellous as the inside of the book is also its binding: chiselled silver and gold driven parts on purple velvet decorated this gem of art history. Today the manuscript is kept as M. R. CF. Arm. I in the Biblioteca Civica Berio in Genoa, Italy. * * * Title: Durazzo Book of Hours * Owner / Shelf mark: m.r. C.f. Arm. I Biblioteca Civica Berio (Genoa, Italy) * Alternative Titles: Libro d'Ore Durazzo -- Durazzo-Stundenbuch * Theme: Private Devotion Books * Style: Renaissance * Date: Early 16th century * Origin: Parma (Italy) * Format: 14.3 × 9.7 cm * Extent: 432 pages * Language: Latin * Content: Book of Hours, a devotional book of prayers for the private use and edification of the laity * Artists / Schools: Illuminator: Francesco Marmitta (1462/1466 to c. 1505), a versatile artist from Parma. Scriptor: Antonio Sallando, a lecturer at the University of Bologna * Illustrations: 6 full-page illuminations and 201 illumiated initials * Patron: A number of stylistic clues seem to indicate that the Libro d'Ore Durazzo was commissioned by a patron from Parma. * Former Owners / Provenance: It is believed that the codex accompanied Francesco Marmitta's second son, Jacopo, to Portugal. However, in the nineteenth century it was in Genoa. Firstly, it was in the hands of the merchant, Antonio Bacigalupo, who inherited it from his father, Francesco, and then in the hands of the Marquis Marcello Luigi Durazzo - a collector, who, having purchased it from Bacigalupo's widow, then bequeathed it to the Biblioteca Berio. * * * Facsimile Edition * Publisher / Year: Franco Cosimo Panini Editore, Modena - 2008 * Limited Edition: 980 copies * Volumes: Facsimile Edition: 1 volume * Commentary: 1 volume * Commentary: (Italian) by Bentivoglio-Ravasio, B.; De Marchi, A.; Gasparotto, D.; Malfatto, L.; Nuvoloni, L.; Toniolo, F. * Binding: The binding features wrought and embossed silver, in part gilded, on crimson velvet. It also features a splendid profusion of classical motifs (acanthus and palmette motifs, ears of wheat, grapes, vases, masks, scarabs and bucrania). The silver clasps are adorned with two small rubies * Boxing: Velvet book case * Condition: Mint copy.

      Xoanon Publishing, 2008. Xoanon Publishing, 2008. Hardcover. As New. Second Edition, (Revised and Expanded) As new. Standard edition, numbered and limited. #93 out of 720 in Rust colored cloth with black lettering to spine, and black graphic of The Witching Cup (Vasculum) to front board. A treatise on Green Sorcery. "More than common botanical learning, the craft of the Green Witch also encompasses diverse praxes of both Magic and Sorcery, directly applied to the plant realm..."& In addition to the general truths embodied in the magic arts ("Magic is the Transmutability of the Quintessence of All Nature"...Sorcery is Knowledge of the points of universal transmutation. Its art is to cultivate the ability to manipulate and utilize these foci of power in accordance with Will, Desire and Belief.") "Green Sorcery echoes these precepts but in addition, presupposes a spiritous template rather than a psychological or energetic substratum..." (and "taps a continuum of power encompassing healing and harming")& (All quoted excerpts from the book)& & The author, a Magister of the Cultus Sabbati, writes: "The perspective of this book, while drawing on the diverse disciplines of the Art Magical, is that of Sabbatic Witchcraft. A revision of the original ("Compleat") edition of 2001. The Author describes this (2008) revision: "...a more cohesive treatment of potion mysteria, integrating additional material, originally excluded for the sake of brevity, as well as understanding gained from The Path since that time. This work is thus a textual visage of the potion arcana of the witch, tempered with the sorcerous metaphysick of Natural Magic, and Alchemy, the Royal Art..."

        IL LEZIONARIO FARNESE

      Franco Cosimo Panini, Modena 2008 - folio. red velvet binding (silver ferrules, clasp strips and coat of arms), clamshell case. 64, 183 pages. Facsimile with accompanying hardcover commentary. One of 550 copies. The majestic liturgical book known as the Lezionario Farnese, produced in Rome shortly after the mid-sixteenth century for Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, represents a high point for the art of illumination. Given its size the work is of monumental proportions and the wealth of embellishments, we may consider the Lectionary a codex of exceptional merit. Splendid embellishments By commissioning this truly sumptuous work, Alessandro Farnese brought into being a codex which, for hundreds of years, served as one of the Missals used by the Popes and princes of the Church during the solemnities held at the Sistine Chapel. In its splendid full-page illuminations and wonderful gilded frames adorned with putti, masks and floral motifs we note the influences of the grand art of the Renaissance and, in particular, the work of Michelangelo and Raphael. A widely acclaimed illuminator With its impressive embellishments, the Lezionario Farnese represents one of the masterpieces of Giulio Clovio (1498-1578), the most widely acclaimed illuminator of the late sixteenth century. Clovio was praised by the Florentine historian, Giorgio Vasari, in the second edition of his Lives of the Artists, as the Michelangelo in little. Vasari cites the Farnese Book of Hours and the Lectionary as the most important of the works of Clovio, who, after leaving his native Croatia in 1516, achieved great renown as an illuminator. The Neo-Gothic binding The original binding went missing with the arrival of Napoleons troops. The codex was then re-bound in 1809-1810 in a red velvet Neo-Gothic cover of considerable beauty and refinement (the work of the London binders, Benjamin II and James Smith). We may note the wrought and gilded silver ferrules and clasps and, on the front cover, the polychrome porcelain coats of arms of the Towneley family, the last owners of this work. Patronage The Lectionary was a commission from Alessandro Farnese (1520-1589), the grandson of Pope Paul III Farnese (who ordained Alessandro as cardinal at the age of fourteen). In the early 1540s, Clovio entered the service of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, considered by historians the most important patron and connoisseur of the arts of mid-sixteenth century Rome. Clovio served the cardinal for the rest of his life, and bequeathed his fine collection of codices and artworks to his patron. The Commentary: The work is accompanied by a book with commentary, edited by Jonathan J. Alexander, with writings by Jonathan J. Alexander, Nicholas Barker, Elena Calvillo and Clive Wainwright. Facsimile with accompanying commentary with clamshell box. red velvet binding (silver ferrules, clasp strips and coat of arms), clamshell case [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He has the power to throw a dazzling flash of lightning on his subjects, an eerily and impossibly prolonged moment of clarity that illuminates details beyond the power of sunshine to reveal" (Chicago Tribune).
