         Problemata Aristotelis cum dpulici (sic) translatione antiqua & nova, s. Theodori Gaze: cum expositione Petri Aponi. Tabula secundum magistrum Petrium de Tussignano per alphabetum.

      - Problemata Alexandri Aphrodisei. Problemata Plutarchi, cum gratia. - Venetiis, Per Bonetum Locatellum, 1501, Folio (304 x 210 mm), (22), 296 fl. double colum, gothic letters, woodcut initials, printer device, fine full leather binding. A broad marginated, clean and well preserved copy of this beautifully volume, printed on strong paper. - The greatest scientific name after Hippocrates is that of Aristotle (384-322 B.C.), who gave the medicine the beginnings of botany, zoology, comparative anatomy, embryology, teratology and physiology, and use of formal logic as an instrument of precision. Aristotle, a pupil of Plato, and at one time tutor to Alexander the Great, had a profound influence in determining the direction of medical and biological thought; perhaps no other man has so dominated and advanced science as a whole.The Aristotelian Problemata enjoyed considerable popularity in the Middle Ages, especially its book IV, dealing with sexual intercourse and generation, which adapted in such manner that it became a kind of pornographic publication. - Petrus de Abano (1250-1315?) was one of the most illustrious and influential men of his time and probably the most influential medical writer of the later middle age. A native of Apano near Padua (from which he takes his name), he took his degree in Paris and his cures were so remarkable that he was able to obtain the highest fees of any physicians of his time. He was called the Consiliator because of his remarkable book published during his residence in the Paris University. He was consulted by such man as Pope Honorius IV and was in great demand for lectures, consultation, and teaching. Dante was among his pupils. Abano believed that air has weight, that brain is the source of the nervous system and the heart the source of the blood vessels- novel ideas that were not validated for centuries. He was the first to acquaint the West with the Problemata from Aritotle`s school, to which he wrote the present commentary. For his heretical and outspoken views he was several times accused of heresy. Later he was suspected of magic and persecuted on that account during the Inquisition. Dying before his trial, his body was taken out and burned in the public square. The medical science of the scholastic was a part of the universitas litterarum, the scholastic physicians were philosophers. The methods of thought had been prescribed by Aristotle and the learned man of Arab. - "Petrus spent some time in Constantinople probably before 1293; during his stay found a copy of the Problems of Aristotle.he translated them into Latin for the first time. He began a commentary on these problems while in Paris, and completed it at Padua in 1310.His experience and activity represents a landmark in the history of scientific humanism." -Sarton III, 439 - "Prefatory note by Domenico Massaria. The translatio antiqua of Aristotle is that by Bartholomaeus de Messina, which usually accompanies the commentary by Pietro d'Abano; not the ancient Latin version beginning Omnes hominess.- The Problemata of Alexander of Aphrodisias is in the translation of Giorgio Valla; the Problemata (Quaestiones convivales) of Plutarch in that by Giovanni Petri, edited by Giovanni Calfurnio." -Durling, NLM, no. 286, p. 36; - - Thorndike II, 874-947 + 921; Sarton III/1 pp.439-446; Sigerist, Great doctors, 75-79; Gordon Medial & Renaissance Medicine, pp. 333-337; Brit. Museum Ital. Books (Aristotle), p.55. This edition not in Osler, Wellcome, Cushing, Waller, Adams, etc. RILEY, Aristotle texts and commentaries , in the Univ. of Pennsylvania Library (1961) has only an edition of 1505 (no. 209) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Postilla Guillerini sup[er] Epistolas et Evangelia de Tempore, de sanctis, et pro defunctis.

      Cologne: Heinrich Quentell, 1501. Hardcover. Very Good+. [With:] Bernard of Clairvaux, Passio domini et de planctu beate Marie virginis]; (2) Textus sequentiarum cum expositione lucida ac facili Sacre scripture auctoritatibus aliorumque exemplis creberrimis roborata, una cum vocabulorum explanatione (Heinrich Quentell, circa 1500?); (3) Expositio hymnorum cum familiari commento (Cologne: Heinrich Quentell, 9 December, 1500). Three works in one, 4to (207 x 141mm). Pagination: 1) Postilla Guillerini: [1], [4], 178 leaves (i-clxxviii), including the Passio Domini: 18 leaves. 2) Textus Sequentiarum: 133, [11] leaves; 3) Expositio hymnorum: [1], 76, [1] leaves. Collation: I: *(4), a-z(6), r and c(6), A-D(6), E(4), Aa-Cc(6). II: a(8), b-c(6), d(8), e-f(6), g(8), h-i(6), k(8), -m(6), n(8), o-p(6), q(8), r-t(6), v(8), x(4), y(6). III: A(8), B(6), C(8), D-E(6), F(8), G(6), H(8), I-K(6), L(4), M(6). The Postilla with 46 lines of extensive glossed text attractively rubricated throughout with initials alternating red and blue and paragraph marks in red. Large woodcut of the preaching scholar on title, also known as the ?"Accipies woodcut,?" although this version omits the legend. Publisher Heinrich Quentell was the first to use the ?"Accipies?" woodcut in 1490 and it was in use until 1496 and then picked up again in 1500, as here. Quentell?'s woodcut was popular with scholastic printers and was extensively imitated and in some cases directly reproduced. Generally, all books with the ?"Accipies?" woodcut would have been intended for interactive classroom use. Modern alum-tawed leather, endpapers renewed, two unrelated incunable excisions laid in with rubrication; (occasional light marginal dampstaining, dark marginal dampstaining on last few leaves of Expositio, cloth folding case). This copy seems to have once belonged to the Dominican brothers of Pforzheim by the near contemporary inscription, probably, ?"concalvus pfortzheimerensis ordinis praedica.?" Scattered Latin marginalia throughout in a few hands likely dating to this period; this book was probably shared among generations of classroom clergy who made simple corrections, notes, and referred to biblical passages of interest. Another title inscription is dated 1649 and an eighteenth-century ex-libris on the lower margin of the title reads ?"Iacobi Andreae Cactian Carolopolitani.?" Carolopolitani, or Charleville, is a town in northeast France near the border of Belgium known for their vibrant monastic community. A likely 18th-century hand makes a clear provenance note in English on an original front flyleaf retained by binder. Stamp of the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary Library (deaccessioned). Together these are three scarce works, the first, an Epistles and Gospel commentary by Guillermus Parisiensis, or William of Auvergne, which includes the appendix, the "Passio Domini", and the other two ("Textus" and "Expostio") are on the particular sequence of hymns in church music and were composed anonymously but have been attributed to Hilarius. These three works are found together again in a 1510 edition by Melchior Lotter. This Quentell commentary differs from the far more numerous Latin editions of the "Postilla" in many ways; written in the vernacular it is clearly aimed for a lay audience. In fact, a prologue to the "Postilla" explains the value of Bible study to the reader. Earlier editions of the "Postilla" appeared in 1492, and again in 1494 and 1497. William of Auvergne was a friar and theologian, later bishop of Paris, who died circa 1248. He was an active participant in the scholastic discourse that centered in Paris in the early University days. William was really the first to provide in-depth discussions of issues that arose in sermon and preaching throughout Europe. This work retains the classic ?"Accipies?" woodcut title of the preaching theologian as well as is enhanced with monastic provenance from the early modern period. ISTC records only the Guillermus Postilla by Quentell for the years 1492, 1494, and 1497. ISTC is00463000 (Textus), ie00162000 (Expostio).

         Satyrae). Cum glosis Scipionis ferrarii Georgii filii de monte ferrato artiu(m) & medicine doctoris.

      (Venedig, Pentius ) 1501 - 4°. 102 Bl. Pergament des 18. Jahrhunderts (Gebräunt und fleckig, teils bestossen). Goff, P-352. - Sehr seltene und reich kommentierte Ausgabe dieser Postinkunabel. - Aulus Persius Flaccus (* 4. Dezember 34 n. Chr. in Volterra; † 24. November 62 n. Chr.), römischer Dichter (etruskischer, ritterlicher Abstammung) propagierte in seinen Dichtungen die stoische Lebensweisheit und kritisierte zeitgenössische Missstände. Seine Werke wurden nach seinem Tod vom Philosophen Lucius Annaeus Cornutus herausgegeben und waren bis ins Mittelalter populär. (Wikipedia). Seine Dichtung wurde auch später noch rezipiert, allerdings im Laufe der Zeit immer weniger verstanden. Persius, bei seinen Zeitgenossen beliebt und geschätzt, später noch von Quintilian und Martial bewundert, galt mit dem größer werdenden zeitlichen, sprachlichen und kulturellen Abstand zunehmend als dunkel, unverständlich, obskur oder gar kafkaesk. Sein Werk schien vom „neronischen Zeitstil“ und der Autor von einer mystifizierenden, esoterischen Weltsicht geprägt. (vgl. dazu Kißel). - Persius schrieb u.a. sechs Satiren im Hexameter, die hier vorliegen. Eine Praetexta (Tragödie mit nationalrömischem Inhalt) und Gedichte auf Arria, die Schwiegermutter des Thrasea (eines befreundeten Politikers), gingen verloren. Das unvollendete Satirenbuch wurde von Cornutus bearbeitet; dieser kürzte den Schluss der 6. Satire und entschärfte anstößige politische Anspielungen. Außerdem sind 14 Choliamben (Verse im Hinkjambus) teils am Ende, teils am Anfang der Satiren überliefert.(Wikipedia). - Einen neuen Zugang mit Würdigung seiner sprachlichen und stilistischen Eigenheiten, die ein neues Verständnis der Satiren liefert und mit den tradierten Vor- und Fehlurteilen (dunkel, unverständlich, obskur) aufräumt bietet Walter Kißel: „Aules Persius Flaccus. Satiren. Herausgegeben, übersetzt und kommentiert. Heidelberg 1990. Zum Verständnis von Dichter und Werk vgl. dort die Einleitung S.1-14). – In den ob. Blatträndern knapp beschnitten (einige Bl. mit Teilverlust der Paginierung.). Mehrere Unterstreichungen und Marginalien, teils auch Eintragungen im Text von alter Hand.

         Novae qvestiones sphaerae, hoc est, de circvlis coelestibvs, et primo mobili, in gratiam studiosae iuuentutis scriptae. (bound with) Primus tractatvs brevis et vtilitis de tempore, con scriptus in gratium studiosorum.

      I: With woodcut armillary sphere on title, text woodcuts, and 3 folding tables, no volvelles as is most often the case. II: With woodcut armillary sphere on title, text woodcuts, and 11 folding tables. Bound in contemporary limp; vellum made from an early fifteenth - century manuscript sewn ?Greek style? through the spine; small paper flaw (pp. 97 - 98), minor tears and repairs to tables, contemporary annotations. I. First edition. This introduction to astronomy by the Wittenberg professor of mathematics, written in the form of a series of questions and answers, became the standard astronomy text for German universities. Theodoricus (1501 - 1578) was quite familiar with the writings of Copernicus, yet he held out for the immobility of the earth. ?He cites Copernicus as well as Ptolemy for the relative magnitudes of earth and sun. He gives Copernicus? figures for the maximum and minimum declination of the sun, and his estimate that this movement of the ecliptic approaching and receding from the equator is completed in 1717 years . . . Theodoricus contended that elementary spherics such as his own were necessary for all students of the liberal arts and not merely for those who were to go on in astronomy? (Thorndike). II: First edition of Garcaeus? first treatise on time measurement. The author here correlates the time measurements of the ancients (Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, etc.) with the contemporary Julian calendar utilizing various astronomical measurements, including lunar and solar cycles, rise and fall of fixed stars, and the movements of the planets, all of which are charted on the eleven folding tables. ?An astrologer, astronomer and meteorologist of some note . . . [he] referred to Copernicus as the ?outstanding artificer of our age?. He was not, however, speaking of the heliocentric theory but of the Copernican perpetual canons of mean motions and equations? (Thorndike). Houzeau - Lancaster notes that this first edition was put on the Papal Index. On the final page is a poem dedication to Johannes Regiomontanus in German. Garcaeus (1530 - 1575), a pupil of Peucer at Wittenberg, became an astrologer, astronomer and meteorologist of some note, according to Thorndike. He wrote a number of works on topics of astronomy and meteorology, plus two additional works on time measurement, both published in 1565. He apparently conformed to Ptolemaic astrological principles, and believed that ?[astrology] was not against freedom of the will, and that God often acted against secondary causes (i.e. the stars). Ultimately Garcaus became bishop of Neu - Brandenburg.

         [Institutiones oratoriae]. (Colophon: Venice, "aedibus Aldi et Andreae soceri" [= Aldus Manutius & Andre Torresani d'Asola], August 1514). 4to. With Aldus's famous woodcut anchor device on the title-page, repeated on the back of the last text page. Gold-tooled red morocco (ca. 1700), rebacked and given a black morocco spine label in the 19th century.

      Adams Q52; Ahmanson-Murphy 106; BMC STC Italian, p. 546; Renouard, Aldus, p. 68, no. 5. The first Aldine edition (the only one produced by Aldus Manutius himself) of the complete text of Quintilian's De oratoria, on the teaching of speaking and writing. It covers not only the theory and practice of rhetoric, but also the foundational education and development of the orator himself. For Quintilian, the ideal orator or rhetorician was skilled in speaking and also a moral man. The Institutiones can therefore be described as a treatise on education, a manual of rhetoric, a reader's guide to the best authors and a handbook of the moral duties of the orator. Although much of what he writes is similar to Cicero, Quintilian emphasizes teaching. He was recognized by his contemporaries and strongly influenced the schools that the Romans spread throughout the Empire until the fifth century. The present edition is well printed and set entirely in one size of italic type, a style Aldus introduced in 1501.With an occasional early marginal annotation in brown ink and a later owner's inscription. Slightly browned throughout and with occasional water stains, but still in good condition and with generous margins. The binding has been rebacked and is chafed around the edges, but the gold-tooled centrepiece is well-preserved.

      Alden & Landis 505/8; BMC STC German, p. 772; JCB I, pp. 40-41; Proctor, German Books 1501-1520, 10386; VD16, J-712 (4 copies); cf. Adams H-714 (1501 Quentell edition); DSB XII, pp. 60-63. Fourth Quentell edition, extensively illustrated, of Sacrobosco's classic 13th-century treatise on astronomy De sphaera mundi ("On the sphere of the world"), with extensive commentary by the Czech astronomer Wenceslaus Fabri de Budweis (1455-1518). Two of the diagrams clearly explain a solar and a lunar eclipse. The present copy is extensively annotated by a (near) contemporary hand, adding even some further illustrations, including an astronomical diagram. The book is divided into four chapters treating the definition of a sphere; the various circles and their names; the cosmic, chronic, and heliacal risings and settings of the constellations; and the movements of the sun, moon and planets."Sacrobosco's fame rests firmly on his De sphaeria, a small work based on Ptolemy and his Arabic commentators, published about 1220 [...] It was quite generally adopted as the fundamental astronomy text, for often it was so clear that it needed little or no explanation." (DSB). Sacrobosco was the first European scholar to use Arabic sources for his astronomical studies, helping to spread Arabic knowledge to the Western world. He describes the earth as a sphere, opening the way for the Renaissance astronomical revolution of Copernicus and Gallileo. The work had a great impact on the science of astronomy in the following centuries. Alden & Landis cites the present edition as, "The earliest edn to refer to America, on verso of lf 33." This page contains the "Tabula Climatum", an addition between chapters 3 and 4. It is described as "rectificata 1491"[!] and does appear in a few editions before the present. The reference remains somewhat ambiguous.With several small wormholes throughout, sometimes slightly affecting the text. Good copy, including the final blank leaf.

         WOODCUTS IN INCUNABULA PRINTED IN THE LOW COUNTRIES

      Houten: HES & DE GRAAF, 2013. Houten: HES & DE GRAAF, 2013. hardcover. DB. 9 x 12.5 inches. hardcover. 1,882 pages in four volumes. This four-volume set is a complete census of the woodcuts in Dutch and Flemish incunabula, and a record of all places in which they appear. The first appearance of the woodcut (or series of woodcuts) is registered, as are all repetitions of that woodcut before 1501. It also gives a survey of woodcuts used by different printers. This inventory provides a very accurate dating system for incunabula. Over 3800 different illustrations have been found in incunabula printed in the Low Countries, which illustrate the history of the use of woodcuts - the different states, the different stages of wear and tear. Available outside North America from HES & DE GRAAF Publishers.

      Olmütz, Conrad Baumgarten, 20. IV. 1501.. 128 Bll.

Mit halbseitigem Titelholzschnitt, ganzseitigem Holzschnitt verso, großer Holzschnittinitiale und Druckermarke am Schluß (alle zeitgenössisch rot ankoloriert) sowie zahlreichen Fleuronee- und Lombardinitialen in rot und grün, darunter fünf Figureninitialen. Durchgehend rubriziert. Gotischer Stempelband der Zeit: dunkelbraunes Leder über Holzdeckeln; das große Mittelfeld dicht mit verschränktem Rautengerank gefüllt; am Hinterdeckel die Ecken mit denselben Spangenstempeln verziert. Ziselierte Schließenhaften aus Messing vorhanden. Folio (220 x 315 mm).. Erste Ausgabe dieser gegen die Böhmischen Brüder gerichteten Polemik des Hexenhammer-Verfassers, ein "Bollwerk des Glaubens der Heiligen Römischen Kirche gegen die Häresie der Waldenser und Pikarden". Von größter Seltenheit: vorliegend der bislang nicht nachgewiesene Erstdruck der ersten Ausgabe mit noch minimal abweichendem Titelwortlaut; alle anderen nachweisbaren Exemplare mit diesem Druckjahr (drei über OCLC, eines in der Wiss. Bibliothek Olmütz, eines in der BSB) besitzen, wie auch die zweite Ausgabe von 1502, einen abweichenden Titel, in dem das - zumal satzfehlerhafte - "Bollwerk" in ein "Schutzschild" verändert wurde ("Sancte Romane ecclesie fidei defensionis clippeum adversus waldensium seu pickardorum heresim, certas Germanie Bohemieque nationes in odium cleri ac enervatione ecclesiatice potestatis virulenta contagione sparsim inficientes"). Lagenschlüssel und Paginierung im Detail abweichend von den Angaben im OCLC. Insbesondere das kopfstehende "u" in "virulenta" (hier stattdessen: "virnlenta"), das in den anderen Ausgaben verbessert ist, weist der hier vorliegenden Variante die Priorität zu. - Im Jahre 1500, 15 Jahre nach der Erstveröffentlichung seines "Hexenhammers", war Institoris "von Papst Alexander VI. zum Nuntius und Inquisitor für Böhmen und Mähren bestellt worden, wo er gegen Ketzer, Zauberer und Hexen vorgehen sollte" (Tschacher). In vorliegender Schrift, seinem letzten publizierten Werk, "beruft er sich nochmals gegen die Verneiner des Hexenwesens auf seine früheren Hexenpredigten und den 'tractatus mallei maleficarum'. Die böhmischen Waldenser hätten sich nicht allein zahlreicher Irrlehren schuldig gemacht, sondern auch die Hexenprozesse als unrechtmäßig bezeichnet. Symptomatischerweise betrachtete Kramer die Häresien der Waldenser und Hexen in seiner letzten Kampfschrift als gemeinsame Vorboten der nahenden Apokalypse" (ebda.). Der Inquisitor, der sich rühmte, nicht weniger als 200 Hexen persönlich auf den Scheiterhaufen gebracht zu haben, widmet sich neben den bereits genannten Häresien auch ausführlich anderen Irrlehren: so findet sich auf fol. 86 ff. ein Kapitel "De origine legis machometice". - Eines der umfangreichsten und drucktechnisch aufwendigsten Erzeugnisse aus der Presse des deutschen Wanderdruckers Konrad Baumgarten, der zwischen 1498 und 1509 in Danzig, Olmütz, Breslau und Frankfurt an der Oder wirkte. Die Paginierung wie stets außerordentlich verworren (s. o.); von der gesamten Lage a trägt nur ein Blatt eine Signatur, nämlich das zweite, das fälschlich als "a iii" gezählt wird (darin mit allen zugänglichen Vergleichsexemplaren übereinstimmend). In unserem Exemplar ist die Zählung der ersten vier Blätter darum auch von zeitgenössischer Hand in roter Tinte zu a i-iv korrigiert. - Exemplar aus dem Besitz des streitbaren böhmischen Franziskaners Johannes Aquensis, 1502 selbst Verfasser einer Polemik gegen die "Pikarden", mit seinen Marginalien und seinem eigenh. Besitzvermerk am Titel. "Johannes Aquensis, tschechisch Jan Vodnansky, ist, obwohl er zu den engagiertesten katholischen Publizisten Böhmens um die Wende vom Mittelalter zur Reformationszeit gehört, von der Wissenschaft bislang kaum beachtet worden. Um 1460 in dem als kalixtinisch geltenden Vodhany (ca. 30 km nordwestlich Budweis) geboren, wurde er von seinem Vater zum geistlichen Stand bestimmt und besuchte seit 1473 die Schule bei der Heinrichskirche in Prag und anschließend daselbst die Universität. Nach dem Erwerb des Bakkalaureats (1480) wurde er Angehöriger des Franziskanerordens von der Observanz und schwang sich zu einem Wortführer gegen Utraquisten, Begarden, Waldenser, Böhmische Brüder und andere Ketzer auf. Nach 1534 verlieren sich seine Spuren [...] Von seinen Werken, die im einzelnen noch kaum von der Forschung untersucht und ausgewertet worden sind, sich aber durch eine merkwürdige Mischung voll Gelehrsamkeit, kämpferischer Dialektik, Phantasie und Leichtgläubigkeit auszuzeichnen scheinen, sind die meisten lediglich handschriftlich überliefert, nur wenige sind gedruckt, einige dürften verlorengegangen sein oder noch der Entdeckung harren" (Dietrich Kurze, Märkische Waldenser und Böhmische Brüder. Zur brandenburgischen Ketzergeschichte und ihrer Nachwirkung im 15. und 16. Jh., in: H. Beumann [Hg.], Fs. für Walter Schlesinger II [Köln 1974], S. 456-502, hier: 480). Erstes und letztes Blatt etwas fleckig und angeschmutzt, gelegentlich minimal wasserrandig, sonst sehr sauber und kaum gebräunt. Im ganzen hervorragendes Exemplar im zeitgenössischen, ersten Einband; die verwendeten Einzelstempel nicht bei Kyriss oder Schunke, die Schließenhaften mit Marienanruf ("MARIA AVE").

         Questiones Joannis de Janduno de physico auditu noviter emendate. Helie Hebrei Cretensis questiones De primo motore, De efficientia mundi. De esse essentia et uno. Annotationibus in plurima dicta commentatoris [ed. Elijah ben Moses Delmedigo].

      [Venice], Bonetus Locatellus, for the heirs of Octavianus Scotus, 18. IX. 1501.. Folio (224 x 306 mm). (4), 151 ff. (without final blank). Gothic type, two columns. Modern full brown calf on three bands, bound to style with blindstamped cover rules and giltstamped fleurons in the corners.. Extremely rare work about the teachings of Averroes, commonly known as Ibn Rushd. The volume contains his principal original writings (De primo motore, De efficientia mundi, and De esse essentia et uno), his commentaries on the Physics of Aristotle, and, at the end, a work on the same subject by another Avveroist, the mediaeval French philosopher Joannis de Janduno. - Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Rushd was a Spanish Andalusian Muslim polymath, a master of Aristotelian philosophy, Islamic philosophy, Islamic theology, Maliki law and jurisprudence, politics, science and Arabic music theory. Born in Cordoba, Al Andalus, present-day Spain, and died in Marrakesh, present-day Morocco he founded the movement of Averroism in the 13th century. - In his study of Averroism, Ernest Renan praised Delmedigo, the editor of the present work, as "le dernier representant celebre de la philosophie averroistique chez les Juifs [...] Ses annotations sur Averroes, ses questions sur la Creation, le Premier Moteur, l'Etre, L'Essence et l'Un ont ete imprimes a Venise avec les questions de Jean de Jandun. Par Elie Delmedigo la philosophie Juive fait sa fonction avec l'Ecole de Padoue qui continuait l'esprit et la methode arabes". - "Elijah Delmedigo achieved fame and influenced many of the leading philosophers and intellectuals of the early Renaissance [...] his translations and commentaries on the works of Ibn Rushd [...] reflect a systematic philosophic approach dealing with topics which have a perennial interest for philosophers and historians of ideas [...] Averroes's texts contain some obscurities which Delmedigo proceeds to explicate" (Stanford Enc. of Philosophy). - The first edition of this important collection was published in Venice in 1488. This is the second, published by the Italian scholar Ioannes Antonius Aprutius but briefly after the death of Delmedigo. Extremely rare; a single copy in the USA (cf. NUC). A beautiful, wide-margined copy bound in the style of the early Renaissance. - Edit 16, CNCE 32731. Cowley, Hebrew printed books in the Bodleian Library, p. 944f. Not in Adams.

         Appologi sive Mythologi cum quibusdam Carminum et Fabularum additionibus Sebastiani Brant

      Basel: Jacob Wolff of Pforzheim,, 1501. Basel: Jacob Wolff of Pforzheim,, 1501. One volume in two parts with distinct register, bound in two, folio (294 × 205 mm). Early 19th-century English straight-grained blue morocco tooled in gilt and blind, each volume to a slightly different design, green endpapers, vellum and paper endleaves, gilt edges; modern cloth folding box. Collation: a8 b–p8.6 q–s6 A–B8 C–D6 E–K8.6 L4 M6 (sigs. s6 and M6 blank and genuine): 204 leaves, unnumbered, including 2 blanks: complete. Gothic type. 335 woodcuts: full-page woodcut of Aesop and 193 woodcut illustrations in part I; woodcut portrait of Brant with his coat-of-arms and 140 woodcut illustrations in part II. Calligraphic initials in type, woodcut white-on-black initials. Small wormholes, mostly repaired, at beginning and end, small marginal section of first leaf repaired, 4 woodcuts lightly censored [as often (Davies)] with pale wash, causing a small hole in one, occasional neat repaired tears, blank section of C3 renewed. First edition, edited and with verses, fables and commentary by Sebastian Brant (1458–1521). Brant's substantial additions expand Aesop into a significantly more extensive compendium of fable and story ranging from the Antiquity of Aesop to the Renaissance of Brant. The German humanist and author of the Ship of Fools based his edition of Aesop on that printed at Ulm in 1476, highly important not only for its Latin translation by Heinrich Steinhöwel but for its extensive and influential series of woodcuts. Brant included other fable literature which features in later incunable editions, such as the Fabulae Extravagantes (17 fables derived from ancient sources), the 4/5th-century compilation of 42 fables by Avian, and the Fabulae Collectae, short tales about human folly derived from Petrus Alfonsi and Poggio Bracciolini. Brant gives these texts a new treatment, amending their translations and adding his own verse commentary. The second part of Brant's Aesop edition is an entirely new work: 140 chapters of fables, exempla, riddles, contemporary accounts of miracles and wonders of nature, brought together from folk tradition, contemporary reports, and sources reaching back to antiquity. They are told with Brant's characteristic combination of wit and style. Brant's Aesop is a typographic masterpiece. Its unified design presents a woodcut, then verse, then prose. The woodcuts illustrating the Aesop corpus are enlarged, reversed copies of the Ulm series, first used in Wolff's Basel edition of c.1489 (Goff A-115). To these are added 145 new woodcuts from a Strassburg Master, most illustrating the second part and four in part one replacing earlier versions. Cf. B. Schneider, Brant Fabeln, 1999. An extremely fine copy from the Sussex–Huth–Jeudwine–Abrams–Arcana collections, and rare on the market; only a handful of copies - most imperfect - have come on the market in the past century and no finer copy has been sold at auction since 1946. Provenance: a) 1526 purchase inscription washed from first leaf (emptus 1526 per christopher[i]...), early MS pagination in volume I; b) Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex (1773-1843, son of George III, bookplate; sale Evans, part IV, 22 April 1845, lots 216 and 217); c) Henry Huth (1815-1878; sale Sotheby's, 15 November 1911, lot 55, £106 to Quaritch); d) W.

         [SATYRAE]. [bound after] CATULLUS, TIBULLUS [and] PERSIUS. [OPERA]

      Venice: Aldus, 1501; Paris: Simon Colines, 1501. First Aldine Edition of Juvenal; reprint of Aldine 1502 Edition of Catullus . Hardcover. The First Octavo Juvenal, and one of the Earliest Books in Aldus' New Italic Typeface. 165 x 102 mm (6 1/2 x 4"). Juvenal: [78] leaves; Catullus: 167, [1] pp. Two separately published works in one volume. First Aldine Edition of Juvenal; reprint of Aldine 1502 Edition of Catullus. Pleasing early--and very probably contemporary--calf, covers with a blind-ruled mitered frame, lower cover with 19th century blindstamped coat of arms (probably German) at center, raised bands, top compartment and a thin strip at bottom of spine expertly renewed, ties missing, PASTEDOWNS FROM A MID-13TH CENTURY MANUSCRIPT with extensive contemporary marginalia (see below). Front free endpaper with early ink inscription "Antonius Dulworth(?) ex dono fratris . . . " and with modern bookplate of Gerald Mander of Tettenhall Wood in Staffordshire; front flyleaf with inscription of Henry Bracegirdle (who bought this volume in Oxford on 6 December 1660); title page with 17th century inscription of Edward Palmer, King's College Oxford; marginalia throughout in Bracegirdle's hand, including an index at the end. Juvenal: Renouard, pp. 29-30; Ahmanson-Murphy 36. Catullus: Renouard, "Simon de Colines," p. 132; Schreiber 52. A handful of small abrasions to front cover, joints and extremities a little rubbed, but the binding sound and rather appealing as a lucky survival without much wear. Two leaves with short closed marginal tears, half-inch wormtrail at tail of gutter on last four leaves, other trivial imperfections, but A REMARKABLY FINE COPY INTERNALLY, the leaves clean and fresh, the Juvenal notably bright. This is a fine copy of the first octavo edition of Juvenal and one of the first books in the new italic typeface, instituted in imitation of the cursive hand in fashion at the time and perfectly suited for the small format editions popularized by Aldus. The collection of 16 satires by the great Roman poet Juvenal (ca. 60 - ca. 130) and six satires by the short lived Stoic Persius (34-62) has provided inspiration for a number of poets intent upon denouncing the vices of society. Among many other examples, Johnson's "London" clearly borrows from Juvenal's third satire, which shows Megalopolis (i.e., Rome) as the seat of vice and corruption. Reflecting Aldus' sustaining commercial goal of providing modestly priced portable editions of the classics to a wide audience, our volume apparently represents the first octavo edition of these satires, and Schweiger points out that the volume comprises a new recension of the text, taken from manuscripts and earlier editions. The work is typographically important as one of the earliest books to appear in italic type. Updike says that "the first books printed in the new font were the Virgil and Juvenal of 1501," and he reproduces the opening page of our text as an example of the new typeface, instituted in imitation of the cursive hand in fashion at the time and perfectly suited for the small format popular editions mentioned above. (In addition to the Virgil, issued in April, and our Juvenal, published in August, Renouard lists a Horace, issued in May of 1501 as the earliest italic printings.) Renouard indicates that there were two Aldine editions dated 1501: our printing (without the printer's famous anchor on the title) and one with the anchor present; the latter edition actually appeared several years later (STC Italian suggests 1515). Like the 1995 auction copy (in 19th century boards, sold at Christie's for £3,910) our copy has two stocks of paper; one bears an "A" watermark very close to, and perhaps identical with, Briquet 7919, while the other matches Briquet 9547. The Juvenal is preceded by a reprint of the 1502 Aldus edition of the Latin elegiac poets Catullus, Tibullus, and Propertius (all first century B.C.) from Parisian printer Simon de Colines (1480-1546). Colines married the widow of the remowned printer Henri Estienne and operated the Estienne press until 1526, when Henri's son Robert took over the business, at which time Colines established his own workshop. He began using an italic type like the one seen here in 1528, and went on to develop his own Greek, roman, and italic fonts. The work of Catullus, one of the three great Latin lyricists (with Horace and Virgil), is superior here in its intensity and technical perfection, but the poems of Tibullus also have a refined and quiet charm, and perhaps the most absorbing portion of the text is the last, in which Propertius dwells upon the successive phases of bliss, disillusionment, and repulsion in his irregular union with a certain "Cynthia." These sentiments struck a chord with former owner Henry Bracegirdle, who encircled text deploring the avarice of girls for luxuries and the inconstancy of women (Bracegirdle signed his first name at the foot of one page, facilitating the attribution of the marginalia). There is also intriguing marginalia on the 13th century manuscript leaves used as pastedowns here. They are half leaves from a manuscript of Aristotle's "Topica" (book V, chapter 3), which was written in France (doubtless Paris). The extensive glossing is contemporary, and includes diagrams, a manicule with a long, arching index finger, and the head of a man wearing a hood.

         Epigrammata [Epigrams]

      Venetiis [Venice]: Aldus Manutius, the Elder, 1501. First Aldine edition. The fourth book published as part of the Aldine Classics, after Virgil, Horace and Juvenal, all printed earlier in the year. The editio princeps was published in Ferrara in 1471. Distinguishable from the Lyonnese forgeries by ‘Amphitheatrum'; and ‘seposita'; on the first page of text. Bound in what appears to be 18th century mottled calf boards with gilt boarders, all edges marbled, with a later reback. Octavo (pages 156 x 91 mm), collating: A-Z8, &7; lacking final blank, otherwise complete. Owner's name and a short, one-inch tear on the first leaf, only affecting one letter, otherwise the book is tightly bound with internal contents in excellent condition. Housed in a marbled paper slipcase. & & Martial is credited as the father of the modern epigram, a short satirical or witty statement, usually in a couplet. His Epigrams open a window on life in Rome in the first century AD, the often lewd behavior of his contemporaries and the poet's own nostalgic recollections of life on the Iberian Peninsula. "It is certain that of all poems, the Epigram is the pleasantest, and of all that writes epigrams, Martial is counted the wittiest." (Sir John Harrington, 1560 - 1612).

         Epistolas Ouidii: Cum commentariis Ubertini: Et epistolas Sabini poetae singularis: Ac epistolam Sapphos: Cum Domitio: Et opusculu[m] in Ibin: Cum [c]omentario eiusdem Domitii: singulaperoptime castigata lector candidissime bic inuenies

      (Bologna: Caligola Bazalieri, 1501). Quarto. (94)ff. This edition is based on the version published by Caligola Bazalieri’s brother, Bazaliero Bazalieri, in July 1491. The text is Ovid’s Heroides, a collection of imaginary letters written from ancient mythological heroines to the lovers who abandoned or mistreated them, including Penelope, Dido, Ariadne, Phaedra, Medea, and Sappho. Printed in Roman type, with wood-engraved initials. Caligola Bazalieri began his career as a printer by working at his brother’s Press, and he printed his own title in 1492. It is rare to come across any of Caligola Bazalieri’s editions: seventeen of the forty-two books that he published are known only as single copies or are “ghost” volumes, only known through bibliographies. This edition of the Heroides is unknown to all bibliographies and unrecorded in any institution. Bound in eighteenth-century red half morocco by Carlo Zehe. Spine in six compartments, gilt-titled in one, and with gilt floral decorations in the other five compartments. Some small spots of biopredation to spine, and minor dampstaining, else fine. Some contemporary notes and corrections written in the margins. From the library of Giacomo Filippo Durazzo, a Genoese nobleman.

Rarissimo postincunabolo veneziano impresso fra il 1500 (data ipotizzata dal Goff) e il 1505 (data fissata da STC Italian Books); il volume venne a lungo ritenuto un incunabolo per la sua estrema contiguità con le caratteristiche incunabolari (il Panger ed il Denis datavano il volume addirittura al 1480). Il ?Flos Medicinae o Regimen Sanitatis Salernitanum?, poemetto di 362 versi latini, è il più celebre testo medico-letterario della Scuola Salernitana. L'opera, oltre alle nozioni propriamente mediche, racchiude massime e suggerimenti per l?igiene e la buona salute personale, oltre che consigli dietetici e curiosità gastronomiche. L'opera è commentata da Arnauld (o Arnau) de Villeneuve, alchimista, medico, filosofo, teologo e astrologo nato in Spagna nel 1240 circa e morto a Genova nel 1312 circa, professore a Montpellier e a Barcellona, fra i più eminenti medici del suo secolo.
