         1480 Julius Caesar WAR Commentaries Military Tactic Incunabula Zartorus Manzolus

      [Taruisii (Treviso): Michael Manzolinus, m.cccc.lxxx. 1480] - 1480 Julius Caesar WAR Commentaries Military Tactic Incunabula Zartorus Manzolus “If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it!” – Julius Caesar A rare collection of civil war histories and Julius Caesar war commentaries edited and translated by Hieronymus Bononius, a 15th-century orthographist from Treviso, Italy. He published the ‘Commentaries’ of Julius Caesar on June 30, 1480. Julius Caesar’s war commentaries are some of the most prolific military writings! While not specifically known for his writing, Julius Caesar wrote this book which would become a mainstay in the Latin literature canon. It focuses on first-hand account of Julius Caesar in the Callic wars, but it was written as though from a third-person view. This first edition, incunabula printing of Julius Caesar’s war commentaries is exceedingly rare and would serve as the format for all subsequent incunabula printings of the ‘Commentaries’! According to Virginia Brown, an expert on the ‘Commentaries,’ this edition takes much of its contents from the 1471 Zartorus production and added the Raimundus Marlianus geographical index to the end. “Michael Manzolus at Treviso in 1480, omitted the letter of Philelphus (which was in the 1471 ed), and substituted an epistle by Hieronymus Bononius and thereby completed the format for the remaining incunabula. The text of Zarotus, supplemented by the letter of Bononius and index of Marlianus was reprinted [through the end of the 15th-century]. (Brown, 3) Item number: #1921 Price: $4950 CAESAR, Julius G.

         TEXT FROM THE OFFICE OF THE DEAD

      c. 1480, France - 150 x 105 mm. (6 x 4 1/8"). Attractively matted and framed. Three-line initial "D" inhabited by the image of a skull, A FULL-PAGE MINIATURE depicting Job sitting on a dung heap in front of a ruined house, talking with three men, and with an emaciated body at the foot of the scene, framed by two gold columns See: Avril and Reynaud, "Les Manuscrits a Peintures en France," pp. 326-7. Significant rubbing to the paint in the bottom portion of the leaf on the right and beneath the text (including the corpse), a few small smudges and chips of paint here and there (mostly negligible), otherwise a well-preserved specimen, the paint in the main scene thick and rich. This miniature, attributed to a prolific artist with ties to the famed "Très Riches Heures" of the Duc de Berry, displays a complex array of imagery. Unlike the other sections of a Book of Hours, which were often truncated and simplified for a lay audience, the Office of the Dead contains the exact same cycle of prayers found in the liturgy of the Church. The nine lessons found therein all come from the book of Job, making illustrations of his story a particularly apt choice to accompany this section. This particular scene shows Job at his lowest point, having lost his family and riches, emaciated, covered in nothing but a loincloth, and sitting upon a dung heap. Although the artist chose not to show the boils and sores that he would have been suffering at this moment, the direness of his situation is clear. At the right stand three men, the richness of their attire a stark contrast to Job's nakedness, who have come to counsel and comfort their friend. Interestingly, beneath the opening line of text that appears in this miniature are the skeletal remains of a body along with a second skull. While images of corpses frequently occur in miniatures depicting funeral rites and burials, it is unusual to find such imagery in a miniature devoted to quite another subject altogether (let alone one with a prescribed Biblical text on which to draw). With the additional skull in the initial, one will notice that there are three in total; might they, along with the three friends depicted above, be an allusion to the Three Living and Three Dead? The miniature can be attributed to Jean Colombe (ca. 1430-93), a prolific illuminator active in Bourges in the 1460s through the 1480s and best known for his finishing work on the "Très Riches Heures" after the death of the Limbourg brothers. According to Avril and Reynaud, he was influenced by both Barthélemy d'Eyck and to a greater extent Fouquet, but quickly developed a recognizable style of own. Given the complexity of the scene in the present miniature, it is no surprise that Colombe's style is known to be "excellent in narrative and anecdote, and does not shy away from any accumulation of details" (p. 326). This miniature, attributed to a prolific artist with ties to the famed "Très Riches Heures" of the Duc de Berry, displays a complex array of imagery.

         BOOK OF HOURS (USE OF GEERT GROTE); Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in Dutch

      A COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE ASSUMPTION MASTER AND THE RARE MONKEY MASTER, WITH COLORFUL, HIGHLY CONTRASTED ILLUSTRATION AND RICH MARGINAL DETAIL. Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in Dutch, The Netherlands, South Holland, c. 1480-90. Dimensions 130 x 100 mm. 327 ff., written in Dutch in a GOTHIC BOOKHAND by several scribes, 2- TO 3-LINE INITIALS in brown touched with gold, 3- TO 6-LINE INITIALS in gold set on red, 7-LINE INITIALS in gold, blue, red, orange, green, and violet paint, touched with white, FULL PAGE MINIATURES on inserted singletons with arched compartments painted in blue, red, green, purple, and orange, with burnished gold, set on PAINTED BORDERS. BINDING: Bound in a near-contemporary (16th century) blind-tooled paneled calf binding with six raised bands, both clasps and front hardware lost. ILLUSTRATION It includes seven miniatures by the Assumption Master and charming borders by an exceedingly rare artist, the so-called Monkey Master (or Master of the Anecdotal Monkeys). He takes his name from the monkeys that cavort in many of his borders. His style is further characterized by the presence of many other drolleries in his densely filled borders - foxes and dogs with cowls, peacocks, etc. - as well as the bulbous eggplant-like ("aubergine") forms. His richly colored palette is strong and highly contrasted, and his style of drawing is sharp and linear. This is a key work by an artist, the Monkey Master, known in a small group of manuscripts of which only two contain miniatures. The seven miniatures in the present manuscript more than double the artist's known oeuvre. PROVENANCE: once owned by Gerard Vanius, his MS K (inscribed "No. K ex libris Gerardi Vanij" in the top right corner of f. 1r), then it was in a private collection in France, and then a private collection in the United States. CONDITION: Very lightly rubbed in small areas, in clean and fresh condition. Full description and pictures available. (BOH 141)

         Summa in virtutes cardinales et vitia illis contraria eorumque remedia ad partem tertia libri de naturalibus exemplis.

      Paris, Ulrich Gering, Guillermus Maynyal, 16 août 1480. ____ Bel incunable sorti des presses du premier atelier typographique parisien. Ulrich Gering est un trois typographes qui a introduit l'imprimerie en France. En 1470, Jean Heynlin (ou La Pierre), prieur de la Sorbonne, et Guillaume Fichet, son bibliothécaire, avaient fait appel à trois spécialistes allemands, Ulrich Gering, Martin Granz et Michel Friburger, afin d'ouvrir une imprimerie à Paris. Les trois typographes installèrent un atelier dans une maison du cloître Saint-Benoît, appartenant à la Sorbonne. Il ont créé de toute pièce un matériel d'imprimerie. C'était alors un art secret. Ces proto-typographes imprimèrent 22 ouvrages puis en 1473, déplacèrent l'atelier, non loin de là, rue Saint-Jacques, à l'enseigne du "Soleil d'or". Granz et Friburger, les deux associès de Gering retournèrent en 1477 en Allemagne. Gering poursuivit seul son travail d'imprimeur, puis s'associa en 1479 avec Guillaume Maynyal. Ils imprimèrent ensemble 5 ouvrages, dont celui-ci. Maynyal s'installa à son compte cette même année 1480. Ce texte est apparement un commentaire sur le livre III de Servasanctus de Faventia, De naturalibus exemplis. L'auteur de la table in-fine est Nicolaus de Castro. L'ouvrage est imprimé en caractère petit romain, très élégant, gravé par Ulrich Gering. Une jolie lettre orné au début du texte en rouge et or. Initiales et rubriques en rouge et bleu tout au long du volume. Impression sur deux colonnes. Petites piqûres de vers en tout début d'ouvrage. BMC VIII, 24. GW M44439. ISTC : is00862300. Claudin, Histoire de l'imprimerie en France I, 86. *-------* One copy only in U.S.A: Philadelphia, Univ. of Pennsylvania. Apparently a commentary on Book 3 of Servasanctus de Faventia: De naturalibus exemplis. In-folio.

         Antiquatates Romanae [translated by Lampo Birago.]

      Treviso: Bernardinus Celerius, 24 February 1480 - Folio. Seventeenth century vellum, spine lettered by hand. Spine soiled, mild stain to first few text leaves; a very good copy. 300 leaves, complete with the first blank. Capital spaces, with guide letters. Leaves numbered in an early hand in roman numerals, renumbered in arabic when rebound in the seventeenth century correcting misbinding of several gatherings, occasional manuscript marginalia in a number of early and 18th century hands. Engraved armorial book plate of the philosopher David Hume (state B) to front pastedown. First edition, one of at least 6 issues, frequently mixed, with the colophon printed in capitals, the date correct, and the name of the translator given; from the library of the Scottish philosopher and historian David Hume. Dionysius Halicarnassensis, "Greek historian and teacher of rhetoric, flourished during the reign of Augustus. He went to Rome after the termination of the civil wars, and spent twenty-two years in studying the Latin language and literature and preparing materials for his history"(Encyclopaedia Britannica). The present work "embraced the history of Rome from the mythical period to the beginning of the first Punic War. His chief object was to reconcile the Greeks to the rule of Rome, by dilating upon the good qualities of their conquerors. According to him, history is philosophy teaching by examples, and this idea he has carried out from the point of view of the Greek rhetorician. But he has carefully consulted the best authorities, and his work and that of Livy are the only connected and detailed extant accounts of early Roman history" (ibid.) Dionysius's work was hugely successful; ISTC records 140 surviving copies of this edition. This copy is from the library of David Hume. Hume was an avid reader from an early age and the family home at Ninewells would have contained, according to Mossner "a fair range of the Latin classics in prose and poetry, a few of the Greek, a few more of the French, and a miscelleaneous lot of the English" (The Life of David Hume, p. 30). As a student at Edinburgh, Hume's education probably included a course on Roman antiquities under Charles Mackie, the recently appointed professor of universal history. We know from his writings that he was familar with the work of Dionysius, citing him in at least two of his essays, the essay "of Polygamy and Divorces" in volume two of his Essays moral and political (1742) and in the essay "Of the Populousness of ancient nations", included in his Political Discourses of 1752. In a letter written from Ninewells in February 1752, shortly before the Political Discourses were published, Hume remarks; "I have amus'd myself lately with an Essay or Dissertation on the Populousness of Antiquity, which led me into many Disquisitions concerning both the pubic & domestic Life of the Antients. Having read over almost all the Classics both Greek and Latin, since I form'd that Plan, I have extracted what serv'd most to my Purpose: But I have not a Strabo, & know not where to get one in this Neighbourhood" (quoted in Mossner, p. 263). It is interesting to note that in his citation of Dionysius, Hume refers only to "Books" and "Sections", suggesting that he was reading from early published sources. In citations from later printed sources he provides Book and Chapter references, clearly drawing his quotations from later editions of those authors' works. Quite how David Hume might have acquired this volume is unclear. It is not mentioned in Norton & Norton's The David Hume Library, but as they note, there are very few details of how Hume's library was dispersed, and equally little about how he obtained his books. Goff D250; Hain 6239; Pellechet 4300. ISTC locates 4 copies in Scotland, 3 at the National library of Scotland, and 1 at the University of Glasgow, all of them acquired after Hume's death.

         Fasciculus temporum, in Dutch: Dat boek dat men hiet Fasciculus temporum.; With additions

      Utrecht: Johann Veldener, 14 February 1480. Chancery folio (272 x 197 mm). 338 leaves (of 340, without blank leaves 42/8 and and 43/10). 38 lines, table in 3 columns. Bâtarde types. Four-part woodcut scrolling foliate border on 1/2r and 15-line ornamental woodcut initial opening preface on 1/2r, 12-line woodcut opening text on. 35 woodcut illustrations printed from 20 blocks, numerous woodcut coats-of-arms, Veldener's device (Juchhoff 55) printed twice, woodcut roundels in chronological diagrams throughout; ALL WOODCUT ILLUSTRATIONS, BORDERS, INITIALS, AND COATS-OF-ARMS FULLY COLORED IN AN EARLY HAND, in green, pale yellow, orange, blue, green and pale purple wash. 3- and 4-line initial spaces with printed guide-letters, the larger initials (introducing the separate chronicles) in blue and flourishing in red, smaller initials, paragraph marks, capital strokes and underlines in red. Later blind-stamped paneled calf in period style over the original 15th-century bevelled wooden boards. Rebacked; inner margins of 1/1 and last two leaves renewed just touching letters, woodcut borders on 1/2r and 2/1r cropped as usual, 11/3, 36/4, 38/2, 38/7 and 41/5 with marginal repaired tears, some browning and occasional soiling. PROVENANCE: Wilhelm Geiger and his sons (contemporary gift inscription paraphed on the last leaf, occasional early ink annotations in Dutch in two hands presumably by the Geigers, with an extensive additional text added on fol. 222r and v; his inscription on the first page records that a foot of snow fell during the night of Easter Sunday on April 1st, 1528, which remained on the ground for the next fortnight); purchased from Lathrop C. Harper, 1974. FIRST EDITION IN DUTCH, FULLY COLORED IN A CONTEMPORARY HAND, of the synoptic world chronicle by the erudite Cologne Carthusian, the most widely used historical reference work of the incunable period. This edition contains extensive supplementary chronicles directed to a Dutch and Flemish readership, including histories of the dukes of Brabant, counts of Holland, Zeeland and Hainaut, bishops of Utrecht, and the kings of France and England. The translator and editor have not been identified. This is the second edition of the work printed by Veldener, who printed a Latin edition in 1475 on his first, Louvain, press based textually on the first edition printed at Cologne in 1474 by Ther Hoernen. Eight of the woodcuts of the Dutch edition were first used in the 1475 edition; of the remainder four were copied from the cuts of the Rudimentum novitiorum (Lübeck 1475) and the rest, including the coats-of-arms in the supplementary chronicles, are original to this edition. The new cuts include the Creation, the Golden Candlestick of Moses, the Destructions of Niniveh and Babylon and St. Peter at the Gates of Heaven. A professional typecutter and native of Würzburg, Johann Veldener was an important and once unrecognized presence in early Cologne printing; he spent several years casting types for Cologne printers before setting up his own press at Louvain in 1473 or 1474 (cf. HPT, pp. 18-19). During the three years that he spent in Utrecht (1478-81), Veldener concentrated exclusively on vernacular texts, mainly devotional. In 1483 he reappeared at Culemborg, printing three books there before returning to Louvain, where he remained active until 1486 or 1487. The collation in BMC, describing a final quire of 8 leaves, is incorrect (should be 10). HC 9646; BMC IV, 12 (IB. 47086-86a); CIBN R-188; Harvard/Walsh 3868-9; IDL 3950; Schreiber 5122a; Goff R-278.

         GESTA ROMANORUM

      Gouda: Gerard Leeu, 23 August 1480. This is the first dated edition of a popular Medieval work, printed by the prototypographer in Gouda, Gerard or Gheraert Leeu (ca. 1445-92). Issuing his first work in 1477, Leeu produced 69 publications in Gouda before moving in 1484 to Antwerp, then a major city for international trade that offered more opportunity to sell his wares in other countries. While most of his works were in Latin or Dutch, he also printed some of Caxton's translations for the English market. His career, and his life, came to an abrupt end in 1492, when he was stabbed to death by one of his typesetters during a quarrel. He was admired by humanists, with Erasmus describing him in a letter as "a skilled practitioner of the art of printing and a very amiable man." The "Gesta Romanorum," or "Deeds of the Romans," is a collection of tales probably compiled in England in the early 14th century as a sourcebook for pastoral sermons. Some of the stories are from classical history, some are legends, but all have a moral or edifying quality. In addition to offering material for preachers, "Gesta" was also a source for such works as Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" and Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice" and "King Lear." There were numerous manuscript versions of "Gesta" in circulation, and with the advent of printing, 25 editions were issued in the incunabular era. This is an uncommon edition, with ISTC finding just four in the United States. Our copy was originally owned by the Abbey of the Brethren of the Holy Cross, an Augustinian order commonly called the Crosiers or "Crutched Friars," in the Northern Holland city of Hoorn. Dutch incunabula continue to be aggressively sought after, particularly when they have substantial content, as in the present case.. 250 x 180 mm. (9 3/4 x 7"). [144] leaves. 18th century polished calf, raised bands, spine attractively gilt in compartments with calligraphic ornament at center, tulip cornerpieces, red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Rubricated in red, numerous handwritten two-line initials in red, first page of text with woodcut frame of floral vines and with five-line opening initial in red and white infilled with penwork vines, woodcut ecclesiastical coat of arms in colophon. Colophon and final page of index with red ink ownership inscription of the Brethren of the Holy Cross of Saint Peter's Vale in Hoorn. Goff G-282; not in BMC. Covers with a few blemishes, joints with short cracks at head, corners rubbed to boards, but the binding still solid and not without appeal. Woodcut frame trimmed with minor loss, final leaf a little soiled, isolated marginal stains and spots, but A FINE COPY INTERNALLY, quite clean, fresh, and bright.This is the first dated edition of a popular Medieval work, printed by the prototypographer in Gouda, Gerard or Gheraert Leeu (ca. 1445-92).

         1480 Magnificent Incunable - 3 Vols- Glossed Bible -Ex. Large Folios-complete

      - Biblia Latina cum Glossa Ordinaria. (Strassburg: Adolph Rusch for Anton Koberger, not after 1480) 4 volumes bound in 3. 1209 leaves, Complete (except for 2 blank) 472 x 332mm or 13.5" x 19.5". 2 volumes 5.5" thick & one volume 4.5" thick. The earliest Latin Bible printed with "glosses" is an anonymous and undated edition which came from the press of Adolph Rusch: Strassburg, '1480,' fo: Hain 3173, Copinger 44. It contains in the margins the 'glossa ordinaria' of Walafridus Strabo (a writer of the ninth century), and an interlinear gloss by Anselmus (apparently Anselm of Laon, who flourish c. 1100). A Rusch produced this Bible for A. Koburger of Nuremberg. This Bible contains 1208 printed leaves. The signatures are peculiar. They are not composed of any regular succession of letters, but repeat the same letter throughout a great number of sheets. Possibly they represent the seven or eight presses at which the work proceeded. This bible contains the First Printing of the Glossa Ordinaria: the authoritative Church-sanctioned commentary on the Bible. Incorporating 600 years of Biblical interpretation by the greatest Church Fathers. This is the Largest Incunable Ever printed. The publication of this Bible was the most ambitious printing project of its time, requiring the international cooperation of 3 of the greatest printers of the 15th century. The historical record tells us that Rush of France carried out its printing (using 7 presses); that Amerbach of Switzerland provided the fonts; and that Koberger of Germany saw to its distribution. The last copy I could find that sold was at Christies Auction House. Sale #5513 on April 2008. It sold for $111,400. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         FASCICULUS TEMPORUM [Text in Dutch]

      Utrecht: Johann Veldener, 14 February 1480. UNIQUE HAND-COLOURED COPY of this, the First Dutch edition of Rolewinck's great 15th century Encyclopedia of History. With fine hand-colouring to the more then 30 impressive woodcuts as well as numerous hand-coloured diagrams, coats of arms, etc. Two leaves within broad ornate hand-coloured boarders, opening leaf and colophon leaf also hand-coloured with decorative borders, rubricating all throughout in red and blue. Folio, in contemporary diced calf covered boards, the corners with brass pieces on the board edges, leather straps with brass clasps. 388 ff. leaves A unique hand-coloured copy in excellent state of preservation, the text quite fresh with only occasional and very minor marginal old flaws from use, some with neat repair, a very few leaves with repaired flaws affecting a few lines of text, some old mellowing or staining throughout, all quite minor. Occasional antique and neat manuscript notations as one would expect with a book of this scholarly importance. Werner Rolevinck's Fasciculus Temporum - the first history of the world. The Fasciculus Temporum was first printed in Cologne in 1474. It passed through more than thirty editions in its author's lifetime, and was apparently an indispensable work of reference until after 1532, when it was superseded by others more up-to-date. It was translated into Flemish, German, and French, and an edition appeared in Seville in 1480. THIS FIRST EDITION IN DUTCH has extensive supplements oriented to a Dutch public, relating to the history of the dukes of Brabant, bishops of Utrecht, and counts of Holland, Zeeland and Hainaut, as well as the kings of France and England. Veldener had already printed a Latin edition of the Fasciculus Temporum, the first printed chronological history of the world, at Louvain in 1475. For that edition he reprinted Hoernen's first edition of 1474, adding one further woodcut and bringing the chronicle up to date with an entry for 19 December 1475, only ten days before printing was completed. For his Dutch-language edition Veldener worked from a manuscript; its translator remains anonymous. Twelve woodcuts, strongly based on cuts in the Rudimentum novitiorum (Lübeck 1475), and the set of coats-of-arms are original to the Utrecht edition; they are the work of the "Utrecht woodcutter" Werner Rolevinck was a German monk and historian who created over 50 titles during his lifetime, with the Fasciculus Temporum standing as his most triumphant work. As if an entire history of the world wasn't a big enough feat in the 15th century, Rolevinck created the book with dual parallel timelines, one running from creation, the other from the birth of Jesus Christ. The work was an instant hit upon its release. It also stands as only the second book ever published by any living author, with only Robertus Valturius' 1472 work, De re militaria, published earlier.

Italy, Naples, 30 December 1480. 378 x 260 mm., 2 paper leaves, 378 vellum leaves, one paper leaf, collation: I-V8, VI6, VII10, VIII-XLVII8, XLVIII2 (complete); vertical catchwords. Justification 243 x 160 mm., two vertical and 46 horizontal rules in pale brown ink, written in dark brown ink in a regular and very elegant rotunda, a round semi-humanistic script, by Venceslaus Crispus. Running titles and headings in red, colophon (fol. 376r) in red, paragraph marks alternately blue and red, opening words of each Quaestio in burnished gold capitals. Illumination: two opening leaves (fols. 1 and 177) illuminated each with a large thirteen-line initial extending into a full-length bar border with knots and leaves sprouting in the margins into elaborate sprays of leaves and flowers in blue, purple, and green, with burnished gold bezants on penwork stems and tendrils, the lower margin of the first leaf with the royal arms of the Kings of Aragon and Naples emblazoned in a wreath supported by two winged putti and surmounted by a crown; 179 very fine illuminated initials, seven to eight lines high, containing highly finished designs of variously colored flowers and leaves with delicate white penwork on burnished gold grounds, some with short extenders. Very occasional tiny chips to initials. Overall condition: vertical creases in ff. 2, 8, 26, 50 and 375, old crease mark to fol. 1, partial crease in fol. 38; fol. 1 slightly soiled and with small area of damp-stain at top near hinge affecting the uppermost portion of the illuminated border, chipping to the large initial on that page; some fading or rubbing to ink of the creased leaves and a few faded areas in fewer than 10 other pages; a few wormholes in first 10 leaves, one or two marginal wormholes in last few leaves; small stain to 84v; apart from these minor flaws in very fine, pristine condition. Bound in early 19th-century diced Russia leather over wooden boards, sides with blind roll-tooled borders, spine with olive morocco lettering-piece, edges gilt and gauffred at an earlier date. Worn, joints split; in a modern morocco-backed folding case. A magnificent royal manuscript of exquisite quality in material, calligraphy, and illumination, containing two key philosophical treatises of Thomas Aquinas, the most important Christian philosopher of the Middle Ages. Written for Ferdinand I of Aragon, King of Naples, one of the great art patrons and bibliophiles of the Italian Renaissance, as part of an extraordinary project to assemble a complete set with definitive text of the works of St. Thomas for the royal library of Naples, the manuscript is of well-documented provenance: it has passed through the libraries of three kings, three cardinals, a prince and an earl. PROVENANCE: 1. Dated in colophon (30 December 1480, fol. 376v). Written and illuminated for Ferdinand I of Aragon, King of Naples (1456-85), with his royal arms on first leaf. 2. By descent to his son, Federico of Aragon (d. 1504), King of Naples (1496-1501), when he was forced to yield his kingdom to Louis XII of France. 3. Georges d'Amboise (1460-1510), Cardinal, Archbishop of Rouen, prime minister of the Kings of France, bibliophile and patron of the arts; this manuscript described in the inventory of his Château de Gaillon in 1508, his library bequeathed to subsequent archbishops of Rouen. Destrez-Chenu 1953 list 22 manuscripts, and later two more were found but not listed in the inventory, making a total of 24. 4. Cardinal Charles II de Bourbon-Vendôme (1550-90) and Cardinal Charles III de Bourbon-Vendôme (1562-94). The latter left part of the archiepiscopal library to the Jesuits of the Collège de Clermont, and the other part to his nephew, the king of France (cf. Delisle, pp. 259-60, and Guigard I, pp. 243-44). 5. Henri IV, King of France (1589-1610), who took possession of the entire library, and transferred it to the Cabinet du Roi. Part of the Cabinet was housed in the then-abandoned Collège de Clermont; in 1604 the Jesuits reclaimed this building, which had originally been theirs, as well as their share of the books, including this manuscript. 6. The Jesuit Collège de Clermont in Paris, with their 17th-century ownership inscription on fol. 1r, "Collegii Paris. societatis Jesu," and, in the inner margin, the later note "Paraphé au désir de l'arrest du 5 juillet 1763 / Mesnil"; the latter referring to the closing of the college following suppression of the order. The books were sold in Paris in 1764: Catalogus manuscriptorum codicorum collegii Claramontani, no. 539, purchased by: 7. Gerard Meerman (1722-71), author of Origines typographicae, who bought a large portion of the Clermont manuscripts (but was forced to present a certain number of them to the royal library of Louis XV in order to obtain permission to export the remainder; his son Jean Meerman (1753-1815), for whom the book was rebound, their joint sale, part IV, 2 July 1824, lot 480. 8. Bertram, Fourth Earl of Ashburnham (1797-1878), no. 88 in his Catalogue of the Manuscripts at Ashburnham Place, Appendix, [1861]. 9. Henry Yates Thompson (1839-1928), who bought the manuscripts of the Ashburnham Appendix en bloc in 1897, then sold a selection of them, including this one, under the Ashburnham name, at Sotheby's, 1 May 1899, lot 39, to Emich. 10. Tammaro De Marinis (1878-1969), his sale, Hoepli, 30 November 1925, lot 355, illustrated. 11. An unidentified owner; apparently at this time two engraved bookplates were affixed to the front pastedown: that of the Prince de Soragna (1773-1865), and a large 18th-century engraved armorial bookplate. 12. An anonymous consignor, Sotheby's London, 23 June 1998, lot 59 (according to the Sotheby's description the manuscript was "sold probably before the last War to a private collection in Lugano, whence it was bought directly by the [unnamed] present owner in the 1980s," sold to: H. P. Kraus (Cat. 220/251). CONTENTS: Part I: fols. 1r -174v: Incipit: De potentia questio prima, Questio est utrum in deo sit potentia…, ending on fol. 174v: Expliciunt quaestiones sancti Thome de potentia dei.fols. 174v-176r: Table of chapters fol. 176v: blank Part IIfols. 177r-376r: Incipit Questio prima de malo. Incipiunt questiones de malo sancti Thome de aquino ordinis predicatorum… ending on fol. 376r explicit Sicut patet in arreptitiis, and colophon: Questiones de malo beati Thome de Aquino ordinis predicatorum Expliciunt feliciter Anno a Jhesu Christi millesimo quadringentesimo et octagesimo die xxx° Decembris fols. 376v-378r: Table of chapters fol. 378v: blank Although Thomas Aquinas (ca. 1225-74), earned his reputation teaching at the University of Paris, he was from a southern Italian family with close ties to Naples, the city where he studied before joining the still young Dominican Order in 1244. Two years before his death he founded a theology school in Naples. Called "Doctor Angelicus," Aquinas was the first theologian of the medieval period to adapt Aristotelianism to Christianity. The two treatises in the present volume, De Potentia (fol. 1) and De Malo (fol. 177) are written in the form of quaestiones or debating topics for classroom discussion. They treat a set of fundamental and interrelated philosophical, moral and theological questions centered around God's omnipotence, and the existence of evil, with wider implications for the philosophy of science. Both texts are among the rarest of the major works of Aquinas. The census of Aquinas manuscripts (Dondaine and Shooner 1967-85) so far only covers libraries from A to P, but among thousands of Aquinas manuscripts listed there it apparently records only 34 copies of the De Malo, including fragments, and even fewer of the De Potentia. Thirteen of these are in public libraries in France, seven in Italy, and five in England; there is only a single manuscript of either text in all of North America, an imperfect copy of the De Malo on paper (De Ricci, Census, p. 878, no. 75). The present manuscript was evidently part of an extraordinary program in the royal library of Naples to assemble a complete set of the works of Thomas Aquinas, whom they regarded as Neapolitan. More than that, the Aragonese library seems to have deliberately set out to create a single definitive text of his works, perhaps as exemplars. The manuscript at hand, though unsigned, is securely attributable to the hand of the prolific royal scribe Venceslaus Crispus. He was born in Bohemia and belongs to the period when the royal court of Naples was attracting scribes and scholars from all across Europe. At least sixteen manuscripts of the Aragonese set of Aquinas were copied between 1484 and 1493 by Venceslaus Crispus. The effort and time he expended in writing these vast books is astonishing. The present book alone has more than 16,000 lines of text in a beautiful, elegant, rounded semi-humanistic hand, "almost flawless in its perfection" (De Hamel, Sotheby's, 23 June 1998, lot 59). De Hamel noting further that "30 December in 1480 fell on a Saturday; evidently the scribe was working against time, perhaps to complete the vast project in time for the king's New Year celebration." ILLUMINATION: The 179 illuminated initials and border illustrations are securely attributed to the artist Matteo Felice (fl. 1467-93), who worked for the royal library in Naples. "The slender putti and the handsome foliated initials…are closely related to those of other manuscripts illuminated by Matteo in Naples around 1480 (cf. De Marinis 1952-1957, I, pp. 157-58, pls. 37, 40-43 and 45, and Alexander 1994, no. 12, p. 68). We know for certain that he collaborated with Venceslaus Crispus between 1489 and 1493 in the production of four other manuscripts of Aquinas, for payments to him are recorded in the royal accounts (cf. De Marinis 1952-1957, II, docs. 763, 847 and 876, and IV, pls. 236-38). The present book must have been one of the earliest on which they collaborated. The style of the illumination adopts Paduan and Ferrarese motifs. The full-length illuminated border recalls the elegant and delicate decoration of the margins in the Breviaries and Missals produced in Ferrara for the dukes of Este and Gonzaga. Matteo Felice was "one of the finest interpreters of these new decorative influences in Naples" (De Hamel, loc. cit.). Of the 24 recorded manuscripts from the Aquinas project, twenty codices are now known to survive, another indication of the extreme value attached to these books throughout the ages (15 of which are published on the database: Europea Regia). The series include - along with the present codex: 's-Heerenberg, Castle Huis Bergh, ms. 14, Grenoble, BM, ms. 344, Louviers, Bibliotheque de la Ville, mss. 5, 7, 8; Naples, Biblioteca Nazionale, ms. VII B 4, Paris, BN ms. lat. 495, 674, and 6525, Smith-Lesouef ms. lat. 14; Valencia, Bibl. Univ., mss. 47, 53, 380, 395, 764, 840, 847, 1377, 1718, 2296 and 2301; Vatican, Rossiano ms. 292; and one other manuscript in private hands (sold at Drouot, 19 May 1976, lot 48). The interesting chain of provenance of this manuscript, which left Italy for France so soon after its production, is owed largely to the bibliophilic zeal of the Cardinal d'Amboise. Historians have been able to study his collecting activities in detail thanks to the survival of the account books for the construction of his chateau, the extravagant Château de Gaillon, near Rouen, published by Deville 1850, containing the names of nearly 70 artists and artisans, and of two inventories of the chateau's contents in 1508. This manuscript was one of 38 manuscripts from the Royal Library of Naples that were purchased by d'Amboise. LITERATURE: L.

         Miniature of Christ on a leaf from a Missal.

      France: circa, 1480. Large illuminated leaf on vellum, 342 x 262 mm., with a miniature upper right, 92 x 74 mm., depicting Christ with his hands held in prayer, framed in gold, with fourteen 2-line initials in gold on red and blue ground, infilled with white penwork decoration; intricately decorated panel border on all sides composed of coloured flowers and leaves on black hairline stems enclosing text on all; 28 lines of gothic text in double columns; the verso is stamped "Edward Ford" at lower left. A grand illuminated leaf, evidently from a most impressive Missal, with a fine miniature representing the Feast of the Assumption, depicting Christ with a golden halo dressed in red robes with his hands held together in prayer. The craggy landscape is planted with lush, green trees. The leaf is richly illuminated with a fine border on all sides and fine illuminated initials.The Missal was introduced in the Carolingian period and by the thirteenth century had supplanted the older Sacramentary, combining in one volume the various components for the performance of the mass. Its development was prompted by the custom of saying private masses and low masses, which were performed by the celebrant alone.This leaf is from the collection of Sir Edward Ford, author of Bibliography of Australian Medicine 1790-1900.

"Louise of Savoy, to whom the work is dedicated, was particularly Duchess of Anjou region in which the author proposes a vast chronicle, from the flood to the reign - that it is contemporary - Francis I. Jehan Bourdigné (v.1480-1547) was man of the Church and officiated in various parishes Angevin. In his prologue, he explains his decision to write annals and chronicles is not innocent: it means allowing him according to "have experience of cases befallen the time spent as if we had been present when they had their effect ". His story should be so rich in detail and able to arouse the reader's interest. But beyond that, we see that his work is to be considered a true advocate of historians and their work: it presents them as "brave and warlike knights to fame struggling constantly against death and make both their prowess that fame gets victory ". At a time when history is part of Belles-lettres and is not recognized as an independent discipline, it is notable that Bourdigné take in defense, Chez Galliot du Pré à Paris 1529 in-folio (21x31,5cm) (4f.)

         Histoire des quatre fils Aymon. Très nobles et très Vaillans chevaliers.

      4, 8 Bl., 224 S., 8 Bl., Privat-Ldr. mit beigebundene Deckel und Rücken, Etwas berieben, min. angeschmutzt, innen sauber Text franz. Illustré de compositions en couleur par Eugène Grasset. Gravure et impression par Charles Gillot. - Es ist eine wirkungsmächtige Erzählung von den Abenteuern der vier Haimonskinder aus dem Bereich der Geschichten um Karl den Großen. Die Erzählung hat eine internationale Verbreitung gefunden, bei der Texte aus Frankreich, den Niederlanden, England, Skandinavien, Italien, Spanien, Flandern und Portugal in vielen Varianten und Sprachen entstanden, und die den jeweiligen Umständen, besonders auch in der Renaissance bis weit in das 19. Jahrhundert, angepasst wurden. Diese Literatur des Hochmittelalters wurde entscheidend durch die Erfindung des Buchdruckes gefördert und ihre ritterlichen Helden sind vergleichbar mit jenen aus der Artustradition. Zu Beginn dieser lange überlieferten Tradition steht der altfranzösische Versroman (Heldenlied) Renaut de Montauban aus dem späten 12. Jahrhundert, bzw. einer der wenigen identifizierten französischen Chanson de geste (La Chanson de Quatre Fils Aymons im 15. Jahrhundert entstanden Prosafassungen erste frz. Drucke: Lyon um 1480 Paris 1506). Geschildert wird mit epischen Motiven des Mittelalters eine Auseinandersetzung zwischen dem Kaiser und seinem Vasall, der Widerstand mächtiger Adelsgeschlechter des Karolingerreiches - hier Haimon von Dordogne und seiner Familie, die dem König Karl Vasallentreue geschworen haben - gegen die Zentralisierungsbestrebungen Karls des Großen, der die karolingische Reichsbildung im 8. Jahrhundert initiierte, und sein Herrschergeschlecht.

Hg. der deutschen Ausgabe des Kommentars ist Prof. Dr. Anton von Euw, Konservator am Schnütgen-Museum Köln, Umberto Eco verfaßte ein mitreißendes Vorwort. Ausserdem beiliegend die Verlagsmappe mit einigen faksimierten Seiten.Irische Mönche waren es, die nach der stürmischen Völkerwanderungszeit den christlichen Glauben durch ihre aufopfernde Missionierung während des 5. bis 7. Jahrhunderts in Europa verbreiteten. Die uralte irisch-keltische Kultur vermischte sich mit den von den Mönchen von ihren weiten und gefährlichen Reisen mitgebrachten Eindrücken. In dieser Zeit, die man oft "die Zeit der Heiligen und Gelehrten" nennt, bildeten irische Klöster einflußreiche kulturelle und geistige Zentren Europas. Auf dem Höhepunkt irischer Mönchskultur entstand ihr kostbarstes Werk das Book of Kells.Das wurde vermutlich im Kloster Iona um das Jahr 800 von unbekannten, genialen Künstlern geschaffen. Ein erster Hinweis auf seine Existenz findet sich in einem Bericht von 1007 über einen Diebstahl in der Kirche von Kells, in dem das Buch "Das große Evangeliar des Columcille, die Hauptreliquie der westlichen Welt" genannt wird.Bald darauf wurde das in Kells vergrabene Buch aufgefunden. Es blieb in Kells, bis man es während der Regierungszeit Cromwells aus Sicherheitsgründen nach Dublin brachte. Um 1661 übergab es Henry Jones, Bischof von Meath, dem Trinity College. Seither wird es in der Bibliothek des College in Dublin gehütet.Kaum ein anderes Werk besitzt eine solch ungeheure Symbolkraft und magische Ausstrahlung wie dieses prachtvolle Evangeliar. Das Geheimnisvolle gründet vor allem im Reichtum und in der Komplexität seiner Dekoration. Der Eindruck der Heiligkeit des Textes wird durch eine Ausgestaltung, die übernatürlich anmutet, bestärkt.Das Book of Kells enthält vor allem die vier Evangelien. Aber auch andere Texte fanden Aufnahme: etwa am Anfang der Handschrift Kanontafeln, die die Konkordanzverzeichnisse enthalten, die von Eusebius von Cäsarea zusammengestellt worden waren, oder für das Kloster Kells wichtige besitzrechtliche Urkunden. Der lateinische Text wurde in stolzer insularer Halbunziale geschrieben, die wie auch die Illumination einen Höhepunkt irischen Kunstschaffens darstellt.
