         Pomponius Mela cosmographus de situ orbis Hermolai Barbari fideliter emendatus

Barbaro's edition is dedicated to Pope Alexander VI, to whom he also dedicated his Castigationes which were published in 1493. Ermolao Barbardo himself died 2 May 1493. Pomponius Mela, a Spanish geographer, wrote in the reign of the emperor Claudius, and just before his invasion of Britain. The work, which is a resume of geographical knowledge, is known in many manuscripts and was first printed in 1471 in Milan. Between 1471 and 1550 in Italy there were a number of editions, with two printed in Spain. For generations the book was used as a textbook of geography in schools. There is even an edition printed at Exeter in 1711 edited by Dr. John Reynolds, uncle of a well-known painter. Albertino da Lessona came from Vercelli and worked in Venice 1499-1506. There seem to be some 26 editions from his press printed from 1501. The ms. marginalia are simply names taken from the text. CNCE 24231 (listing 8 copies). OCLC records several copies in USA, one in Paris, and one in Berlin. There is no book from this press in the British Library. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Expositio in libro de celo & mundo. Cum questione Domini Egidii de materia celi nuperrime impressa & diligentissime Emendata.

      B. Locatellus pour O. Scotus 1502 - In-folio (310 x 205 mm) de 84 ff.; daim naturel, double encadrement de filets à froid sur les plats (reliure moderne, genre ancien). Adams G-1033 (sous Gratia Dei). Quatrième édition (l'originale publiée à Padoue en 1476). Gaetano da Thiene (1387-1465), de Vicence, fut élève de Paolo Nicoletti à Venise. Il fut l'un des principaux propagateurs de la doctrine d'Averroès en Italie et a abondamment commenté les œuvres scientifiques d'Aristote. “Books I and II of the De caelo treat of astronomical theories; III and IV, of the elements. Drawing upon theories advanced by his predecessors, Aristotle's theories in general may be summarized as representing the earth as fixed at the center of a spherical universe, with the spheres of the moon, Mercury, Venus, the sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn in orbit around the earth, and beyond them the sphere of the fixed stars and the realm of the primum movens or force which, every twenty-four hours, caused the planetary spheres to complete their revolutions, while each planet with an individual motion moved at times slightly retrograde.” (Stillwell, The Awakening Interest in Science during the First Century of Printing, pp. 11-12). En fin de volume se trouve le De materia coeli d'Egidio Colonna († 1316), connu aussi sous le nom de Giles de Rome, “especially noteworthy.[it] takes the position -against Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, and the majority of contemporary scholars- that celestial matter is identical to that of the sublunary world.” (D.S.B., V, p. 403). Quelques figures dans le texte et belles initiales à fond noir. Bon exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Tragwdéiai ?epta metexhghséewn [sic].Tragaediae septem cum commentariis, etc. [ed. Joannes Gregoropoulos]. Venice, Aldus Manutius, August 1502

      1502 - Aldus? device on verso of final leaf, Greek type. 8vo (148 x 91mm.) 196 leaves (including the 3 blanks). 19th century vellum over pasteboard, gilt spine, early title lettered in ink on lower edge. Editio princeps and the first Greek text printed in the 8vo Aldine format. It is set in Francesco Griffo?s small Greek type (type Gk 4 as distinguished in the UCLA Ahmanson-Murphy catalogue), and was printed from a manuscript now in St. Petersburg (Ms. gr. 731) as was noted as long ago as 1926 by W. Bene?evic (see Martin Sicherl Griechische Erstausgaben des Aldus Manutius: Druckvorlagen, Stellenwert, kultureller Hintergrund, Paderborn & Munich, 1996 p. 348 and pl. viii). Sales, it has been suggested by Nigel Wilson, may have been expected amongst the Greeks resident in Venice in the early 16th century, and possibly also amongst the Greeks of Crete. The preface by Aldus addressed to Janus Lascaris speaks of their sitting round the fire in the winter with their fellow members of the Neacademia when Marcus Musurus was singing the praises of Lascaris. ?Therefore as I had been engaged in getting the tragedies of Sophocles printed in small format, I wanted them to come out from our Neacademia under your name, and to send the book to you as a gift and memorial of my deepest affection for you? He then continues in Greek ?the scholia on the tragedies had not yet been printed, but will be printed Deo volente ? and in particular as they relate to metre [lit. opening of metres], and O that I had had that before the tragedies themselves were printed?? The scholia were not in fact printed until 1518 in Rome. Provenance: Latin marginalia to Ajax and notes on first blank from c. 1800 (slightly cropped); bookplate of Sir Charles James Stuart, 2nd Baronet (1824-1901; there are two books from his collection in UCLA (nos. 250, 283); Herbert Thompson (name inscribed on front flyleaf). References: UCLA (The Aldine Press Catalogue of the Ahmanson-Murphy Collection etc., 2001) no. 60; Renouard p. 34, no. 6; Legrand Bibl. Hellénique? aux xve et xvie siècles, 1, pp. 77-79 no. 30.

         Ambrosii Calepini bergomatis eremitani dictionarium

      Reggio: Bertochus, 1502. Calepino, Ambrogio (1440-1510/11). Ambrosii Calepini bergomatis eremitani dictionarium. Folio. [444]ff. Rhegii Lingobardiae [Reggio]: Dionysius Bertochus, 1502 (colophon). 312 x 208 mm. 19th century half calf, paste paper boards, rubbed, corners worn. First and last leaves remargined, marginal repairs to a number of other leaves, minor worming and staining, but on the whole a good copy. Letter tabs added by an early owner. Sheet with former owner?s notes tipped to inside front cover; notes in another hand on front free endpaper.Rare First Edition of the most successful and widely reprinted reference book of the early modern period, which went through an astonishing 166 editions in the sixteenth century, followed by 32 in the seventeenth and 13 in the eighteenth. Calepino, an Augustinian monk, ?devoted some thirty years to composing his dictionary, which focused on classical Latin usage and on encyclopedic information and literary examples from ancient culture. In the years after his death many, mostly anonymous editors made modifications, corrections, and especially additions, often borrowing from other dictionaries . . . In the early modern period the Calepino not only became the most widely recognized brand of dictionary, still active in the early twentieth century, but it also came to stand for the entire dictionary genre . . . At the same time the success of the Calepino solidified the association of the title ?dictionarium? with the dictionary genre?only a few major dictionaries were called by another title? (Blair, Too Much to Know: Managing Scholarly Information before the Modern Age [2010], p. 122).The Dictionarium?s enormous success as a reference work meant that copies were ?read to death?; also, the many revisions that the work underwent during its long publishing history?particularly the addition of vernacular translations beginning in the mid-sixteenth century?suggests that the earlier editions might not have been retained in scholarly libraries. The first edition of the Dictionarium is now quite rare: OCLC and the Karlsruhe Virtual Catalogue cite 11 copies in libraries, only one of which (the Indiana State University copy) is in the United States. Our copy shows signs of heavy use, but it is complete.

         TERZE RIME (Lo 'Nferno E'L Purgatorio E'L Paradiso Di Dante Alaghieri)

      Venice: in Aedib. Aldi. Accuratissime men. Aug MDII., (Venezia. Aldo Manuzio, 1502). The first Aldine printing of The Divine Comedy and the Aldine ?pocket book? format and the first use of the anchor device. With the famous Aldine anchor device on the final leaf. 8vo; 160mm x 95mm, in a beautiful antique binding of full polished vellum, the spine decorated with gilt ruled raised bands separating the compartments, two of the compartments with lettering labels of dark maroon morocco gilt lettered, the covers with triple gilt fillet rules at the borders, marbled endleaves, red edges. [244] leaves, and with the f.82 blank present. A very handsome and desirable copy, very nicely bound. Internally crisp and and quite bright and clean throughout, four of the leaves a bit shorter than the others, but with the same edge colour and clearly part of the text-block for a great time, last leaf with small restoration to the upper outside corner. RARE AND IMPORTANT AND ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS IN LITERARY AND PRINTING HISTORY. The first Aldine printing of Dante's Divine Comedy; the first edition of Dante to appear in a more handy, portable format (all previous editions were folios); the first book to contain the famous Aldine device of the anchor and dolphin (though Renouard suggests that a portion of the edition was issued without the device). According to Brunet, this is a much sought-after edition, and copies are difficult to find in complete and desirable condition. This book for all intents and purposes inaugurated the beginning of literary publishing by Aldus by which books became available to the general publis. This then is a book of the greatest importance. Printed in characteristic Aldine cursive type, this is a well margined and finely impressed copy. It was Aldus who provided the first edition of Dante to appear in a more handy, portable format (all previous editions were folios); it was the first book to contain the famous Aldine device of the anchor and dolphin (though Renouard suggests that a portion of the edition was issued without the device). According to Brunet, this is a much sought-after edition, and copies are difficult to find in complete and desirable condition. Printed in characteristic Aldine cursive type, this is a well margined and finely impressed copy. ?Dante?s theme, the greatest yet attempted in poetry, was to explain and justify the Christian cosmos through the allegory of a pilgrimage. To him comes Virgil, the symbol of philosophy, to guide him through the two lower realms of the next world, which are divided according to the classifications of the ?Ethics? of Aristotle. Hell is seen as an inverted cone with its point where lies Lucifer fixed in ice at the centre of the world, and the pilgrimage from it a climb to the foot of and then up the Purgatorial Mountain. Along the way Dante passes Popes, Kings and Emperors, poets, warriors and citizens of Florence, expiating the sins of their life on earth. On the summit is the Earthly Paradise where Beatrice meets them and Virgil departs. Dante is now led through the various spheres of heaven, and the poem ends with a vision of the Deity. The audacity of his theme, the success of its treatment, the beauty and majesty of his verse, have ensured that his poem never lost its reputation. The picture of divine justice is entirely unclouded by Dante?s own political prejudices, and his language never falls short of what he describes.? PMM

         Le terze rime.

      [Venice: Aldus, 1502]. 8vo (15.2 cm; 6"). [244] ff. First Aldine printing of the Divine Comedy, the first printing of Bembo's restoration of Dante's original text, the first printing of Dante in octavo format, and, on the verso of the colophon leaf, => the first appearance of the Aldine printer's device.    In at least one copy, the new Aldine device is surrounded by a double-line woodcut border. Here, that border has largely been removed from the wood block used — but not entirely, for small regularly spaced "dots" of it are still visible. In yet other copies, all traces of the border have been removed, and in some others there is no anchor device at all, indicating differing states of the edition. => Clearly the press was "tweaking" its logo!    The text is from a manuscript that Pietro Bembo, the greatest Dante scholar of the Italian Renaissance, supplied to Aldus for this edition specifically. It is radically different from the Landino version that circulated in manuscript in the 15th century and was used for the incunable editions. This Bembo version held sway until the end of the 19th century.    Binding: 19th-century full crushed red morocco by Duru, dated 1853. Round spine with raised bands and gilt floral devices in four of the six spine compartments, the other two having author and title gilt in one and place and date of publication in other. Boards ruled in blind with a double fillet forming a center panel bearing a gilt filigree center device and with gilt floral corner devices matching those in the spine compartments; single gilt rule on board edges. Wide turn-ins tooled in gilt with a floral vine roll, a roll of dots, and a dentelle roll; marbled endpaper of a combed pattern. All edges gilt over marbling. Green silk place marker.    Provenance: 19th-century bookplate of Ambroise Firmin Didot. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A.

         Lo Sbandieratore

      1502 - Bulino, 1502 circa, monogrammato in lastra a sinistra al centro. Esemplare nella prima variante di tre descritta dal Meder. Bellsiima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimo margine, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Sullo sfondo di un paesaggio marino, si staglia in primo piano la figura dello sbandieratore, in una delle posizioni standard. La bandiera reca lo stemma dell’ordine del Toson d’Oro - istituito a Bruges nel 1431 da Filippo il Buono duca di Borgogna con il compito di diffondere la religione cattolica. Crollato lo Stato di Borgogna, in seguito al matrimonio di Maria di Borgogna con l’arciduca Massimiliano, l’ordine passò alla casa d’Asburgo. Sotto la bandiera, su un tronco d’albero, la tavoletta col monogramma dell’artista. L’incisione risale al periodo in cui Dürer, stimolato dall’incontro con il pittore veneziano Jacopo de’ Barberi, riprende lo studio delle proporzioni dei corpi e i problemi inerenti la prospettiva. L’interesse per questa materia era stato suscitato nell’artista durante il viaggio di studio in Italia, nell’autunno del 1494, dalle opere rinascimentali del Bellini, del Mantegna e di altri artisti toscani quali Pollaiuolo e Lorenzo di Credi. Al 1502 risalgono anche il San Giorgio in piedi e la Grande Fortuna. Ottimo esemplare. Engraving, 1502 circa, signed at lower center. Example of the first issue described by Meder. A fine impression, printed on laid paper, trimmed to the platemark or with thin margins, in excellent condition. The elastic posture of the lansquenet has been viewed as as by-product of Durer’s preoccupation at about that time with the figure of the Apollo Belvedere, culminating in the figure of Adam in his "Adam and Eve" of 1504. The banner with the Cross of St. Andrew, emblematic of the Order of the Golden Fleece and of the Dukes of Burgundy, was used by Maximilian I in that capacity during the Swiss War of 1499. The background is quite similar to the one in "St. George on foot". A very good example of this engraving. Bartsch 87; Meder, pag. 107, 92 a/c.; Strauss, p. 108 n. 35; Salamon, n. 30. Dimensioni 69 114mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         1502 Valerius Maximus ALDINE Greek Philosophy Homosexuality Alexander the Great

      Venetiis : In aedib. Aldi Romani, Octobri mense. M. DII. [1502]. Adams V83; Ahmanson-Murphy 65; Renouard, Alde, 36:10; EDIT 16 CNCE 36147. - 1502 Valerius Maximus ALDINE Greek Philosophy Homosexuality Alexander the Great Extremely RARE with no other example worldwide This rare post-incunable printing of Valerius’s “Dictorum et Factorum” or Historical Anecdotes is a collection of short stories, sayings, and phrases, memorial to Tiberius Caesar, who was reigning during Valerius’ lifetime. These anecdotes depict ancient Greek life and philosophy as well as famous kings and Caesars. Many modern historians claim that Valerius’s work was taken from Cicero, Livy, and Sallust, as well as other ancient historians and philosophers, rather than creating original works. However, many of the topics he writes about were controversial and unusual for the time – he wrote on homosexuality within the Roman army and the aristocracy of ancient Greece. While homosexually itself was written on, it was only considered tolerable in a ‘master-slave’ relationship; not within a public and high status sense. Other topics include omens, revenge, superstitious cults, women lawyers, modesty, crimes, and conflicting political views. Many of the names mentioned in this famous work include Scipio Africanus, Gaius and Tiberius Gracchus, and Alexander the Great! This 1502 Aldine printing is a reissue of the original, with the main difference being a later issue of sheet ‘A’ (per Adams). Item number: #329 Price: $2500 VALERIUS, Maximus.

Er arbeitete mehrere Jahre als Hauslehrer und wurde 1537 Prediger an der Schloßkirche in Wittenberg, wo ihn Luther im selben Jahr ordinierte. Luther promovierte ihn auch 1544 zum Doktor der Theologie. Seit 1545 war Major Professor für Neues Testament an der Uni Wittenberg. Wegen der Schmalkaldischen Kriege floh er und war kurzzeitig in Magdeburg und Merseburg tätig. Seit 1548 lebte er dann wieder in Wittenberg, und gab dort 1552-1559 Luthers Werke heraus. Seit 1558 war er auch Dekan der Wittenberger Theologischen Fakultät. Major verfasste zahlreiche theologische Schriften, mit denen er lt. Bautz "in die kirchenpolitischen und theologischen Turbulenzen des Übergangs zum konfessionellen Zeitalter" geriet. Er gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Theologen seiner Zeit. - Bautz (cit. nach der Online-Version)- VD 16 M 2205 - Benzing 3455.

Legatura in pergamena rigida, ai cui piatti è stata applicata altra pergamena di recupero, proveniente da codice manoscritto rubricato in rosso. Restauro cartaceo al frontespizio, con perdita di testo su quattro righe alla dedicatoria al verso dello stesso. Testo inquadrato su tre lati da commento in caratteri di corpo inferiore. Capilettera ad acquarello color rosso, apposti negli appositi spazi ad inizio dei capoversi. Chiose e sottolineature cinquecentesche, non invasive, ubicate principalmente nella seconda parte del volume. Decorazione acquarellata a mano al frontespizio. Esemplare genuino, a buoni margini. Si tratta di una rara edizione originale delle sei satire di Persio annotate dall'erudito Giovanni Battista Plauzio (Fontanellato, ? - 1533), che fu docente di retorica presso lo Studio bolognese. L'opera venne poi ristampata a Venezia nel 1516 (Io. Rubeus Vercellensis) e nel 1520 (Bernardinus de Vianis de Lexona). In riferimento allo stampatore Caligola Bazalieri, così annota il Corbelli in "Storia della Stampa in Bologna": "Le sue edizioni sono sempre interessanti per il carattere, pel testo, per l'adornamento: tutte presentano una freschezza e una originalità che non trova riscontro in Bologna nel tempo suo, se non con quelle di Girolamo Benedetti" (in "La Bibliofilia", XXI, 78) . > Graesse, V, 211. Panzer, VI, 321 . Codice libreria 128976.

         Collection of texts in Arabic. Istanbul, 908 AH [1502/03 AD].

      1502. 8vo (18 x 13 cm). 78 ff., naskh script with features of ta'liq, in several different hands. Half-leather Oriental binding with a flap and pasted boards. A collective volume with texts in Arabic on Arabic manuscript paper (for ff. 43-45 and from f. 73 onwards European paper is used). It was copied by Ahmad b. 'Uthman al-Arzan al-Rumi in the city of Qustantiniyya (Istanbul) in one of the eight madrasas (colophon in a later hand on f. 78a). - 1) ff. 1v-13v. Fragment without beginning or end, and possibly misbound, of a gloss on logic (Qala-aqulu structure). Possibly this is the commentary by Qutb al-Din al-Razi al-Tahtani (d. 766/1364) on al-Risala al-Shamsiyya fi al-Quawa 'id al-Maniqiyya, by Nagm al-Din 'Ali b. 'Umar al-Quazwini al-Katibi (d. 675/1276 or 693/1294), Gal G I, 466. Outb al-Din is mentioned on f. 1v. Heavy interlinear and marginal glossing. - 2) ff. 14b-59b. Gloss on logic (Qala-aqulu structure), apparently by al-Sayyid al-Sharif, whose name is mentioned variously. This is the gloss by al-Sayyid al-Sharif al-Gurgani (d. 816/1413), GAL G II, 216, on the commentary by Muhammad b. Qutb al-Din Muhammad al-Razi al-Tahtani (d. 766/1364), GAL G II, 209, on al-Risala al-Shamsiyya fi al-Qawa 'id al-Mantiqiyya, by Magm al-Din 'Ali b. 'Umar al-Qazwini al-Katibi (d. 675/1276, or 693/1294), GAL G I, 466, as confirmed by comparison with MS Berlin Mq. 63 (= Ahlwardt 5260). - 3) ff. 60a-78b. Acephalous fragment of a gloss on logic (Qala-aqulu structure). In the margin of f. 60a is the name "'Sayyid Tasdiqat'", which may indicate that his is another gloss by al-Sayyid al-Sharif al-Gurgani.
