         Het vermakelyk Noord- en Zuid-Holland doorwandelt. Behelzende een korte aanhaling van de steden, dorpen en vlekken daarin gelegen; doorzaaid met aardige gevallen en vrolyke ontmoetingen op die reyse voorgevallen. Eerste deel. Z.p., 1735.

      Gebonden in geheel leer, (10)+431 p. Lit: Mateboer 1506-01, Buisman 1931. Geschreven door dezelfde anonieme auteur als ‘De vermakelyke Haagsche reize [...]’ uit 1731, aldus deelt hij op p. 1 mee. Ook in dit werkje zijn de - veelal erotisch - pikante belevenissen onderweg belangrijker dan een beschrijving van de bezochte plaatsen. De tocht ging in drie weken te voet van Amsterdam via Buiksloot, Broek, Monnickendam, Edam, Purmer(end), Beemster, Rijp, Schermerhorn, Ursem, Avenhorn, Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Medemblik, Schagen, Zijpe, Petten, Schoorl, Bergen, Alkmaar, Egmond, Heiloo, Limmen, Castricum, Nootdorp, Heemskerk, Beverwijk, Velsen, Zandvoort en Haarlem weer terug naar Amsterdam. Het - helaas niet aanwezige - tweede deel bevat een wandeling door Zuid-Holland. Het boek is een titeluitgave van het in 1733 bij Loveringh te Amsterdam verschenen eerste deel van ‘ De wandelaars of: vermakelyke reyze door gantsch Noord- en Zuyd-Holland’ (Buisman 1930, Mateboer 1665-01).

         Concordantie maiores biblie tam dictionum declinabilium quam indeclinabilium de novo summa diligentia cum textu vise ac secundum veram orthographiam emendatissime excuse.

      1506 - Basel, J. Amerbach & J. Petri & J. Froben, 1506. Folio. (444) leaves. Nice although somewhat soiled pigskin binding with raised bands, blind-ruled spine with MS title, richly blind-stamped sides with compartments including flowers, arabesques and coats-of-arms. Clasps preserved. Binding with a few minor wormholes, head of spine slightly chipped, minor damage to corners of front cover, resulting in marginal exposure of the wooden board. Painted vellum index tags attached to the outer edge, each tag corresponding with a letter written on the edge itself. Flyleaves lacking, wood visible on inside of covers. Deckle-edges partly preserved, occasional minor spotting and a few contemporary annotations (leaves i2 and Ff2). A few insignificant wormholes in the beginning and the end, mainly in the lower margin. Old inscriptions: "Cartusiæ Buxheim" and "Cartusiæ aulæ b. Mariæ in Buxheim", respectively, old label with MS library codes pasted onto lower part of spine. Small ownership ticket of Anders Persson in Västerås.VD16 C 4898. Adams Books printed on the continent of Europe 1501-1600 B1955. First edition of the concordance was published in 1485 and new editions were printed up until the second half of the 16th century. The Dominican Konrad von Halberstadt was active during the 14th century and ended his career as a professor of theology in 1362. Johannes de Segovia (ca 1395-1458) compiled the second part of "Concordantie partium sive dictionum indeclinabilium totius biblie" which was first printed in 1476. Konrad Leonberg (b. 1460, d. after 1522) was the editor of this edition and also of the bible edition in six volumes, with commentaries by Nicolas de Lyra, which was made by the same printer in 1506-08. These works share the same format and typography and were supposed to supplement each other, but were also sold separately. The Carthusian monastery of Buxheim is situated in Bavaria in Southern Germany and its library was one of the largest in late medieval times. Large parts of the collection of manuscripts and printed books were sold at auction in 1883. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Straßburg, Knobloch, 1506. - 8°. 37 Bll. Halbpergament (19. Jahrh.). VD16, ZV 16599; Knepper, Wimpheling XIII. - Zweite Ausgabe. Die bereits im Jahr 1505 erschienene Schrift Wimpfelings über die Sittenreinheit löste heftigen Widerspruch u.a. der gescholtenen Mönche aus. Mit der hier vorliegenden 2. Ausgabe konnte Wimpfeling die namhaftesten Humanisten der Zeit in Form von Zustimmungsbriefen hinter sich vereinen. Der Schrift vorangestellt ist ein Gedicht in Form eines Akrostichon des Matthias Ringmann, der zusammen mit Martin Waldseemüller Amerika den Namen gab. Zu den Unterstützern Wimpfelings gehören u.a. die Humanisten Heinrich Bebel, Ulrich Zasius und Beatus Rhenanus. Sehr schönes Beispiel der Bereitschaft der Humanisten füreinander einzutreten und sich dazu öffentlich zu bekennen. - Die seltene Postinkunabel in sehr guter Erhaltung.

         Introductorium in astronomiam Albumasaris abalachi octo continens libros partiales.

      (Venice, Giacomo Penzio for Melchiorre Sessa, 5 Sept 1506). - 4to (210 × 150 mm). 64 unnumbered ff. With woodcut illustration on title, woodcut initials, astrological figures in the text, printer's mark on final leaf verso; complete with final blank. 19th-c. vellum with red and black morocco labels and gilt centre tools to spine. An attractive edition of this key astrological work. Of all the Arabic writers on astrology, the most imposing is Ja'far ibn Muhammad Abû Ma'shar al-Balkhî (c. 787-886), known in the West as Albumasar. The most notable astrological work ascribed to him is the "Prediction of Changes of Years and Births". A manuscript in Cairo titled "Kitab Akham al-Qiranat wa'l Kawakib wa'l Buruj al-Ithnay 'Ashra" (Book of Indication of Conjunction and Corrections of Stars with some other Stars) is very probably the same work (cf. B. A. Rosenfeld and E. Ihsanoglu, Mathematicians, Astronomers and other Scholars of Islamic Civilisation and their Works [Istanbul, 2003], no. 88, p. 34). This 12th-century Latin translation by John of Seville of his "al-Madkhal al-kabir ilá 'ilm ahkam al-nujum" (Great Introduction to the Science of Astrology) was first published at Augsburg, 1489. - Upon Sessa's well-known device, the famous bibliophile Bishop of Ely, John Moore, remarked: "Whenever you see a book with a cat and a mouse in the frontispiece, seize upon it: for the chances are three to four that it will be found both curious and valuable" (Fumagalli, 486). - Small early inkstamp on title; ms. index to binder's blanks at end; some early marginalia and underlinings in two distinct hands. Bookplate of William Stirling-Maxwell (1818-78), the Scottish historical writer, statesman, horse breeder, and collector. Vellum insignificantly darkened with dust, the occasional trivial mark internally; overall an excellent copy. Edit 16, CNCE 822. Adams A 567. Isaac 12913. Gaselee, Early printed books in Corpus Christi Cambridge, 166. Graesse I, 60. Heritage Library, Scientific Treasures, p. 30. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Anders Perssons i Västerås lilla exlibrislapp. VD16 C 4898. Adams Books printed on the continent of Europe 1501-1600 B1955. Första upplagan av konkordansen utkom 1485 och nya upplagor fortsatte att tryckas till 1500-talets andra hälft. Konrad von Halberstadt levde under 1300-talet, var dominikanermunk och slutade sin karriär som professor i teologi 1362. Johannes de Segovia (ca 1395-1458) sammanställde den andra delen "Concordantie partium sive dictionum indeclinabilium totius biblie" som trycktes första gången 1476. Konrad Leonberg (ca 1460 till efter 1522) var redaktör för denna utgåva, liksom för den sexbands bibelupplaga, med kommentarer av Nicolas de Lyra, som framställdes av samma tryckare 1506-08. Dessa båda verk har samma format och typografi och var tänkta att komplettera varandra, men såldes även separat. Buxheims kartusiankloster ligger i södra Tyskland och dess bibliotek var ett av senmedeltidens största. Stora delar av handskrifts- och boksamlingen såldes på auktion 1883.

Und so benahm er sich auch.In wörtlicher Befolgung der Aussagen des 2. Buch Mose "Eine Hexe sollst du nicht am Leben lassen." - (Ex 22,17 EU), befürwortete Calvin die Verfolgung der Hexen und deren Hinrichtung und rief dazu auf, "Hexen" aufzuspüren und gnadenlos "auszurotten".In seinen Predigten über das erste Buch Samuel tadelte er darum jene, die die Verbrennung der Hexen ablehnten, und forderte, sie als Verächter des göttlichen Wortes aus der Gesellschaft ausstoßen.Besonders gut dokumentiert ist Calvins Haltung in den Hexenprozessen von Peney. Calvin glaubte, dass drei Jahre lang Männer und Frauen in Genf durch Zauberkünste die Pest ausbreiteten und hielt alle ihnen durch die Folter abgepressten Selbstanschuldigungen für wahr, nachträglichen Widerruf für unwahr. 1545 wurden innerhalb weniger Monate 34 Unglückliche nach entsetzlichen Martern vor allen Häusern, die sie angeblich mit Pest behext hatten, verbrannt.

      Lyons: Jacques Sacon (for Luc-Antoine Giunta?), 1506. Early Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Good Condition. Later but old full unadorned sheep, surface scratches scrapes, spine a little dry but sound and still attractive overall; Giunta device to title. The title and first few leaves mounted, first 13 preliminaries with various paper repairs at the edges, some just touching the text at the edges. Scattered mostly minor foxing and staining, folio CC with a marginal repair, lacking the preliminary signature dd (6 leaves, a table) ends with the printer's mark and colophon on X5 (lacking rear blank at X6). A-A8, B-B6, aa-cc8 (lacking dd), a-z8, A-T8, U-U6, X-X5 (lacking blank at X6). 385ff (of 392). The first Sacon Latin bible. Sacon was active from 1503-1522, printing for himself as well as Koberger, Petit and others - he reproduced the best editions of the day for the Lyonnaise market. Darlow & Moule 6091, Bibliographie Lyonnaise XII 318. Baudrier suggests Sacon printed it for Luc-Antione Giunta which appears more likely than Masch's suggestion (from Darlow & Moule) that it was an attempted forgery, given Sacon's printing of other works for Koberger, Petit and others.

Es wurde öfter kopiert" (Nagler). - "Although this image became one of the best known representations of Dürer to posterity, it is in fact, twice removed from Dürer's own work. As the inscription states, it was engraved by Kilian after Johann Rottenhammer's copy of Dürer's Feast of the Rose Garlands painting of 1506 which was commissioned by the German merchants of the Confraternity of the Rosary for the church of San Bartolommeo in Venice (Anzelewsky 93)" (Bartum in Dürer catalogue British Museum 2002). - Guter und klarer Abzug. - Bis an den Plattenrand beschnitten (Einfassungslinie noch sichtbar), um 1850 alt aufgezogen und an den Ecken auf Trägerpapier montiert.

Ein wunderschöner alter Druck in hervorragendem Zustand.+++ Johannes Philippson von Schleiden (1506 / 1556), berühmt unter seinem Pseudonym Sleidanus, gelang es mit Herausgabe seines letzten und gerade einmal 50 Blatt umfassenden Werkes 'De quatuor summis imperiis' die Vorlage eines Standardwerkes. Dies hatte zur Folge, dass sein Werk nicht nur binnen kurzem in mehrere europäische Sprachen übersetzt wurde, auch erweiterten andere Autoren in seinem Namen und unter Fortführung des Titels sein Werk. Die Bedeutung des Ursprungswerkes von Sleidanus ist schnell erklärt. Es ist eine der ersten Universalgeschichten des westlichen Abendlandes, die im Wesentlichen basierend auf dem Quellenstudium des Alten Testaments, nicht nur die europäisch-christliche Monarchie, sondern auch die Babylonische, Griechische und Römische Geschichte eingehender würdigt. Noch im Jahre 1659 legt Gabriel Tzschimmer (1629-1694) Sleidanus Werk in erheblich erweiterter Form auf, wobei die Ausgabe inzwischen auf über 600 Seiten angewachsen ist. So sind auch die Jahre ordentlich dazu gebracht und diesselben von Anno 1494 bis 1658 erweitert worden Ironischerweise vergisst Tzschimmer dabei die Ursprungsintention Sleidanus und konzentriert sich in seiner Ergänzung ausschließlich auf die Geschichte der deutschen Kurfürstentümer. Dem Werk an sich hat es nicht geschadet, denn hierdurch liegt uns ein hervorragendes Quellenwerk der Deutschen Geschichte des 17. Jahrhunderts vor. +++ 7,5 x 13,5 cm, 0,4 kg. +++ Stichwörter: Deutsche Geschichte Des 17. Jahrhunderts , Sachsen Kulturgeschichte Rarität Rara

         Commentariorum de Statu Religionis & Reipublicae, Carolo Quinto / Caesare, Libri XXVI. Vna cnm apologia ab ipso Authore conscripta, et indice locupletißimo.

      8 (19x11), 8 Bl., 872 S., 10 Bl., mit allegorischem TitelHolzschnitt, Pgmt d.Zt. mit KantenSchutzrand, alter handschriftl RTitel, kleine VignettenPrägungen, die ersten und letzten Blatt mit leichtem Wasserrand, alte Bibliotheksmarke auf Innenspiegel, Vorsätze gering beschädigt, gutes gepflegtes Exemplar, Johannes Philippson von Schleiden (1506-1556) Geschichtsschreiber, Jurist und Diplomat aus dem damaligen Herzogtum Luxemburg, wozu die Herrschaft Schleiden gehörte.- 1551-52 vertrat er die Stadt Strassburg auf dem Konzil von Trient.- Sein hier vorliegendend Hauptwerk (Commentariorum de statu religionis et reipublicae Carolo V. / Über den Zustand der Religion und des Staates unter Kaiser Karl V.) umfasst die Jahre 1517 bis 1556 und gilt als einer der besten zeitgenössichen Berichte und wichtiges Quellenwerk zur Reformationsgeschichte, gestützt auf eine grosse Auswahl von Dokumenten. Bereits wenige Jahre nach dem ersten Erscheinen galt es als die massgebliche Geschichtsdarstellung der Reformation im Reich: dokumentarisch, weil von einem Zeitzeugen verfaßt objektiv, weil jedes explizite Urteil meidend methodisch bahnbrechend, weil in zuvor ungekanntem Maße auf Schriftquellen gestützt, die niemandem sonst zugänglich waren. Erst Leopold Ranke wies 1824 in seiner Abhandlung Zur Kritik neuerer Geschichtsschreiber nach, daß Sleidanus von seiner Unparteilichkeit überzeugt, sich auf größtenteils unzuverlässiges oder tendenziöses Material verließ. Sleidanus übernahm in seinen (Commentarii) zwar die Form der politischen Historie, doch erfüllte er weder ihre Voraussetzung (Autopsie durch Zugehörigkeit zum Kreis der Entscheider) noch teilte er ihren Erkenntnisanspruch (das Geschehene innerweltlich-machtpolitisch zu erklären). Insofern verselbständigt sich in seinem Hauptwerk die literarische Form gegenüber dem Gehalt.- [NDB 24, 499-500]

         Introductorium in astronomiam Albumasaris abalachi octo continens libros partiales. (Venice, Giacomo Penzio for Melchiorre Sessa, 5 Sept 1506).

      1506. 4to (210 × 150 mm). 64 unnumbered ff. With woodcut illustration on title, woodcut initials, astrological figures in the text, printer's mark on final leaf verso; complete with final blank. 19th-c. vellum with red and black morocco labels and gilt centre tools to spine. An attractive edition of this key astrological work. Of all the Arabic writers on astrology, the most imposing is Ja'far ibn Muhammad Abû Ma'shar al-Balkhî (c. 787-886), known in the West as Albumasar. The most notable astrological work ascribed to him is the "Prediction of Changes of Years and Births". A manuscript in Cairo titled "Kitab Akham al-Qiranat wa'l Kawakib wa'l Buruj al-Ithnay 'Ashra" (Book of Indication of Conjunction and Corrections of Stars with some other Stars) is very probably the same work (cf. B. A. Rosenfeld and E. Ihsanoglu, Mathematicians, Astronomers and other Scholars of Islamic Civilisation and their Works [Istanbul, 2003], no. 88, p. 34). This 12th-century Latin translation by John of Seville of his "al-Madkhal al-kabir ilá 'ilm ahkam al-nujum" (Great Introduction to the Science of Astrology) was first published at Augsburg, 1489. - Upon Sessa's well-known device, the famous bibliophile Bishop of Ely, John Moore, remarked: "Whenever you see a book with a cat and a mouse in the frontispiece, seize upon it: for the chances are three to four that it will be found both curious and valuable" (Fumagalli, 486). - Small early inkstamp on title; ms. index to binder's blanks at end; some early marginalia and underlinings in two distinct hands. Bookplate of William Stirling-Maxwell (1818-78), the Scottish historical writer, statesman, horse breeder, and collector. Vellum insignificantly darkened with dust, the occasional trivial mark internally; overall an excellent copy. Edit 16, CNCE 822. Adams A 567. Isaac 12913.

         Ars memorativa Gerogii [!] Sibuti daripini co[n]cionatorib[us] et iurisperitis multum utilis et fructuosa. Carmen eiusdem in vita[m] sanctae Annae Heroicu[m]. Sphico annexum. Saphicum Ioannis Murmellii. Saphicum Ioanuis [!] cesarii. Cologne, [heirs of Heinrich] Quentel, 7. VIII. 1506.

      1506. 16 pp. With an ornamental woodcut initial on the title page. Papered spine. Second edition of Sibutus's first published work, previously printed by Quentel in March 1505: a treatise on the art of memory. The humanist Sibutus (c. 1480-1528), probably from Tannroda in Thuringia, was a student of Conrad Celtis. Crowned poet laureate by Emperor Maximilian, he practised as a physician and taught rhetorics in Wittenberg, Rostock, Cologne, and Vienna. "This frequently cited and rarely discussed instruction by Sibutus contains within the space of 7½ pages so many obscure precepts, counter-productively mingled with verses by Virgil, Ovid, and others, that it must be quite incomprehensible to anyone unaccustomed with mnemonics. It is apparent that Sibutus employed a very difficult and roundabout method. So as to have no more than 36 mnemonic devices, he used the verse 'arma virumque cano' etc.; for each letter he would imagine a person whose name began with that letter etc. He does not explain how to avoid confusing these persons in case a particular letter occurs more than once" (cf. Aretin, Systematische Anleitung zur Theorie und Praxis der Mnemonik, Sulzbach 1810, p. 194ff.). More of a practitioner than a theorist, Sibutus was proficient in mnemotechnics himself: for Frederick, Elector of Saxony, he recited from memory 600 verses of his "Silvula in Albiorim", a poem praise of Wittenberg. The present volume includes two introductory poems by Johannes Murmellius and Johannes Cesarius, a dedicatory poem to the Lübeck jurist Heinrich Bucholt, as well as Sibutus's own "Carmen in vitam S. Annae". - Slight brownstaining throughout; insignificant waterstain to upper gutter. A single copy in the U.S. according to OCLC (Harvard Med. School). VD 16, S 6262. BM-STC German 812. Panzer VI, p. 358, no. 104. Verfasserlex. II.3, col. 892. OCLC 230985978. Not in Adams.

Prima edizione, di straordinaria rarità (solo due esemplari in biblioteche pubbliche italiane), di questo ''Canzoniere'' sul modello petrarchesco in onore del suo primo amore, Euridice (''puellarum arimineum decus et splendorem''), nome fittizio di una fanciulla riminese, morta il 20 aprile 1500. L'autore (Rimini 1474 - 1540) fu letterato e poeta, ''seguace, con scarsa originalità, di un petrarchismo di stampo bembiano, anche se talora non manca una tendenza ai preziosismi formali, e alle innovazioni tecniche (fu forse il primo ad usare il sonetto di ottonari) che sottolinea l'influsso di Serafino Aquilano'' (Diz. Biogr. Ital.ni), suo amico e presso il quale andò ad abitare ad Urbino. L'opera, con i diversi titoli di ''Amores ad divam Euridicem'' e ''Rime nuove amorose'', fu ristampata a Venezia e Milano fino al 1534. Del Bruni, di cui sono rimaste manoscritte altre opere, scrisse il Mazzuchelli (''Gli scrittori d'Italia'', II, Brescia 1763, pp. 2192 - 3). Ottimo esempl. di questo prezioso cimelio, documento della dominante cultura letteraria e poetica del tempo, impresso con cura su carta forte.

         L'Opera di misser Giouanni Boccacio de mulieribus claris. La fama parla. Chi al mondo acquistar vole honor e gloria segua de queste qui lorma e la via che intorno al carro mio fan compagnia .. (In fine:) Stampado in Venetia : per maistro Zuanne de Trino chimato [sic] Tacuino, m.d.vi adi vi de marzo (Venezia, Giovanni da Trino 6 marzo 1506)

      Tacuino Giov. da Trino, 1506. in - 4, ff. (154), leg. 600sca piena pergamena, titolo ms. al dorso. Al titolo raffinata silografia a mezza pag. che raffigura un trionfo di donne famose, di evidente l'ispirazione al "Polifilo", con iscrizione "Lucrecia Perusina" (Lucrezia Baglioni Vitelli, cui Vincenzo Bagli dedica l'edizione). Nel testo, 105 silografie (alcune ripetute) con ritratti di donne a figura intera, ambientate in variati paesaggi. La maggior parte è ottenuta mediante l'impressione di un piccolo legno con differenti volti femminili, e del legno con il corpo ed il paesaggio, in modo da variare il più possibile le figure. Non ci risulta che questo geniale (e tecnicamente complesso, seppur non raffinato) procedimento, sia stato attuato in alcuna altra edizione. Prima traduzione italiana, ad opera di Vincenzo Bagli, di quest'opera, sapiente miscela tra l'erudizione storica e la novella, dedicata dal Boccaccio alla bellissima Andrea Acciauoli. Scritta dopo il 1360, contiene le biografie di 104 donne illustri, da Eva alla regina Giovanna di Napoli. Precedono il testo la dedica del traduttore a Lucrezia Baglioni, ed un Proemio. Splendida edizione volgare figurata, alquanto rara e dalle inusuali e caratteristiche iconografie. Buon esemplare, puro (piccole tarlature restaurate in parti bianche del foglio di titolo). "L'abbigliamento rieccheggia quello di Caterina Cornaro di Gentile Bellini.. La maggior parte delle silografie è ottenuta con l'impressione di due legni, sì che con un numero ristretto di legni combinati e per di più usando più volte a rotazione la stessa combinazione, si è ottenuto un folto gruppo.. Talune vignette hanno anche un valore ambientale, e sanno già di garbata scenetta di genere.." (Mostra di Certaldo, 1975, n. 40).

Prove tarde, impresse su carta vergata priva di filigrana, databile alla fine del XVI secolo, caratterizzate dalla presenza dei fori di tarlo, rotture di tavola e da una non buona impressione, tracce di colla al verso, in buono stato di conservazione. La serie Le fatiche e i lavori di Ercole di Giovanni Andrea Vavassori, rappresenta la prima opera a stampa del suo genere che descrive l'iconografia ed il mito della figura della mitologia romana, forma italica del culto dell'eroe greco di Eracle. Ogni singola tavola è concepita come un episodio della vita di Ercole, ed è accompagnata da versi in italiano, traduzioni dei poemi latini di Ovidio, Diodoro Siculo e Apollodoro. L'opera del Vavassori fu ben presto ripresa in Francia, dove ebbe una seconda stesura (1506) denominata La Vie et les traveaux d'Hercule, accompagnata dai versi di Denys Fontenoy. Un esemplare di questa opera è conservato alla Bibliothèque Nationale de France. La prima versione delle opere del Vavassori sulle fatiche di Ercole che proponiamo è assolutamente rarissima. Ne abbiamo riscontrato un solo esemplare presso lo Staatliche Museen di Berlino, e 6 tavole al Metropolitan Museum of Art di New York, citate da Ivin. Anche queste prove, sebbene meglio impresse, presentano numerosi tarli e rotture di tavola, tanto da far pensare al fatto che non siano nemmeno loro tirature coeve. La serie delle xilografie del Vavassori fu fonte di ispirazione per un fregio in marmo che il primo marchese di Vèlez, Pedro Fajardo y Chacòn, fece realizzare nel suo castello in Murcia, denominato il castello di Vèlez Blanco (1515). Nel 1904 questo fregio fu acquistato, dal castello in rovina, da alcuni antiquari francesi e trasportato a Parigi, dove fu acquistato nel 1913 da George Blumenthal, che ne fece parte del suo hotel a New York. Dal 1964 il fregio si trova presso il Metropolitan Museum of Art. Poeta, editore, stampatore ed incisore veneto, autore di numerose stampe di diverso genere, tra cui alcune carte geografiche e piante di città, firmate solitamente Ioanne Andrea di Vavassori ditto Vadagnino, o nella forma latinizzata Ioannes Andreas Vavassor dictus Vadagninus. Poche le opere cartografiche attribuibili con sicurezza - secondo Almagià sarebbero diciassette - tra queste: tre piante di città Rodi, Costantinopoli e Venezia, una carta dell'Italia del 1536, ed una Toscana incisa in legno nel 1559. Le opere di Vavassori, sono rarissime, alcune note in un unico esemplare. Molte di queste carte non sono prodotti originali, ma copie o derivazioni di altri lavori a stampa o manoscritti, tuttavia senza poter escludere con assoluta certezza un suo contributo nella compilazione di alcune di queste. Importanti documenti per la storia dell'arte grafica. Hercules and Nemean lion Hercules and Lernaean hydra Hercules and Cerberus Hercules and Nessus The Death and Apotheosis of Hercules Woodcuts, around 1506, signed in the last table. From the series Labours of Hercules. Later examples, printed on laid paper without watermark, dating from the late sixteenth century, characterized by the presence of wormholes, broken table and not a good impression, traces of glue on the reverse, in good condition. The series The labors of Hercules and the work of Giovanni Andrea Vavassori, represents the first printed work of its kind, and describes a series of episodes concerning a penance carried out by Heracles, the greatest of the Greek heroes, whose name was later Romanised as Hercules Each table shows an episode in the life of Hercules, and is accompanied by verses in Italian, translations of the Latin poems by Ovid, Diodorus and Apollodorus. The work of Vavassori was soon resumed in France, where it had a second draft (1506) called La Vie et les traveaux Hercule, with verses by Denys Fontenoy. A copy of this work is preserved in the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. The first version of Labors of Hercules by Vavassori we propose is absolutely rare. We found only one example at the Staatliche Museen in Berlin, and 6 plates in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, quoted by Ivin. Also these, although better imprinted, have numerous worms and broken - table, so as to suggest to the fact that they are not even coeval. The Vavassori's woodcuts was an inspiration to a marble frieze that the first Marquis of Velez, Pedro Fajardo y Chacon, had built in his castle in Murcia, called the Castle of Velez Blanco (1515). In 1904 the frieze was bought and transported to Paris, where it was purchased in 1913 by George Blumenthal, who made it part of his hotel in New York. Since 1964, the frieze is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A Venetian poet, publisher, printmaker, author of numerous prints of various kinds, including some maps and city plans, usually signed by Andrea Ioanne Vavassori ditto Vadagnino, or in Latinized form Ioannes Andreas Vavassor dictus Vadagninus. Few cartographic works are attributed with certainty - according Almagià would be 17: three plants of the city Rhodes, Constantinople and Venice, a map of Italy in 1536, and a woodcut of Tuscany,1559. The works by Vavassori are rare, some notes in a single impression. Many of these prints are not coeval, but later copies or derivations of other printed works or manuscripts, but without being able to exclude with absolute certainty the artist's contribution in the compilation of some of these.

         Manuscript Diary 1887 of Edith M. Knighton, of Towanda and Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, wife of Van Camp Peters, relating her experience of being robbed on a train near Grande Junction, Colorado, by Butch Cassidy, also includes large Collection of Incoming Correspondence and Ephemera, all dated 1872-1913

      No Binding. Very Good. Archive consisting of 444 letters, 1506 manuscript pages, (240 retained mailing envelopes), dating from May 7, 1872 - August 15, 1913, the bulk being from the 1880s to 1890s, with a 25 page manuscript travel diary recording a journey to the West (Sept-Nov 1887), plus 65 pieces paper and manuscript ephemera. Many of the letters were written to Edith by her husband, mother, or other family members and friends. Diary: 13 pages of diary entries and 12 pages of accounts and expenses, plus blanks, measuring 3 ½"" x 5 ½"", bound in limp calf, good condition, written in pencil, in a legible hand. Records the events and occurrences of a railroad journey to Colorado and Utah, including an eyewitness account of a train robbery, which is believed by many historians to have been the first of many by Butch Cassidy. According to Outlaw historian, Charles Kelly (1889-1971), the first train robbery of the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad was carried out on November 3, 1887 by Butch Cassidy, Bill McCarty, and Matt Warner. Modern historians (such as William M. Patterson) question Kelly's findings, however many appear to agree with Kelly. This train robbery is recounted in Edith's diary: ""After passing Grand Junction, Colo. about five miles from this station...one of the wildest spots on this Grand River at 1:15 A.M the train was ""held up"" by [ties], boulders, and a red lantern on the track. Six masked men attacked the train and presenting revolvers at the head of the fireman and engineer entered the express car. Sealing engineer, fireman, express messenger and mail clerk up as he [barked] ""Hands Up,"" demanded to try the safe. Being locked up with combination it could not be opened, then took 25 registered packages & letters. After 55 minutes concluded to leave without disturbing passengers. [The] brakeman had been sent back to Grand Junction of which they were informed. The train conductor and brakeman went forward but were fired at and retreated. The robbers removed obstructions from the track before leaving. Colored porters hid in upper berth, money secreted in various places & feeling a visit. Water cooler held our [pear pins], purse [with] several watches, etc. After a night of adventure were up before six o'clock...."" The correspondence in this archive for the latter part of 1887 includes letters from Van C. Peters to Edith, while Edith was traveling out west by train. The letters are addressed to her at Denver and Salt Lake City. These letters confirm facts and details of Edith's journey, and since the diary does not have Edith's signature, the correspondence proves that the diary belonged to Edith. One letter, written by William Newbold Wilson to his sister Sarah ""Sadie"" R. Knighton (Edith's mother) makes a reference to the train robbery that Edith witnessed: |~|""December 23, 1887 ...O Sadie, it is very hard for us to live & yet God has been exceeding kind in giving me such loving & true friends. I will enclose Bro - E's letter - How sorry I am he has had a return of neuralgia. What a joy it must have been to you to have your children return, safe, sound, & well, after such a long & as it proved ""perilous journey."""" Between October 5 and October 19, 1887, Edith receives 2 letters addressed to her at Denver, Colorado, and 7 letters addressed to her while at Salt Lake City, Utah. It was on her return trip that the train robbery occurred. Description of the Correspondence: The correspondence in the collection centers on the Knighton family of Towanda and Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. The majority of the letters are written to Edith M. Knighton, but a sizeable number are written to her mother Sarah ""Sadie"" R. Wilson Knighton, and Edith's husband Van C. Peters. The correspondents tend to be family or friends. Edith's future husband Van Camp Peters writes a number of letters to Edith as he courts her and after their marriage in 1888. Edith also writes a number of letters to Peters, particularly in 1888.

         L'Opera de misser G. Boccacio de Mulieribus Claris. con FACSIMILI

      La fama parla. Chi al mondo acquistar vole honor e gloria. (In fine:) Stampado in Venetia : per maistro Zuanne de Trino chimato [sic] Tacuino, m.d.vi adi vi de marzo (1506), - in-4, ff. n.n. 154, (manca il primo fascicolo; i 6 fogli in ottimo facsimile) leg. antica piena pergamena. Al titolo raffinata silografia a mezza pag. che raffigura un trionfo di donne famose, di evidente ispirazione al "Polifilo", con iscrizione "Lucrecia Perusina" (Lucrezia Baglioni Vitelli, cui Vincenzo Bagli dedica l'edizione). Nel testo, 105 silografie (alcune ripetute) con ritratti di donne a figura intera, ambientate in variati paesaggi. La maggior parte è ottenuta mediante l'impressione di un piccolo legno con differenti volti femminili, e del legno con il corpo ed il paesaggio, in modo da variare il più possibile le figure. Non ci risulta che questo geniale (e tecnicamente complesso, seppur non raffinato) procedimento, sia stato attuato in alcuna altra edizione. Prima traduzione italiana, ad opera di Vincenzo Bagli, di quest'opera, sapiente miscela tra l'erudizione storica e la novella, dedicata dal Boccaccio alla bellissima Andrea Acciauoli. Scritta dopo il 1360, contiene le biografie di 104 donne illustri, da Eva alla regina Giovanna di Napoli. Precedono il testo la dedica del traduttore a Lucrezia Baglioni, ed un Proemio. Splendida edizione volgare figurata, alquanto rara e dalle inusuali e caratteristiche iconografie. "L'abbigliamento rieccheggia quello di Caterina Cornaro di Gentile Bellini. La maggior parte delle silografie è ottenuta con l'impressione di due legni, sì che con un numero ristretto di legni combinati e per di più usando più volte a rotazione la stessa combinazione, si è ottenuto un folto gruppo. Talune vignette hanno anche un valore ambientale, e sanno già di garbata scenetta di genere." (Mostra di Certaldo, 1975, n. 40). Buon esempl., malgrado i primi 6 fogli facsimilati e macchie d'inchiostro su 5 ff. Sander 1088. Essling 1505. Cat. Dyson Perrins 178. Bacchi della Lega 29.6. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Mambelli,21: "Stampata verso il 1506 in Toscolano da Alessandro Paganini che col padre Paganino, oltre a stampare libri, aveva anche coltivato l'arte di bulinare e di fondere magnifici caratteri. La presente edizione, che può dirsi una fedele riproduzione dell'aldina del 1502, però con caratteri più grandi, è assai rara e pregevole. Il Witte in "Quando e da chi sia composto l'ottimo commento", a pag. 29, scarta la data 1506 e assegna invece a questa edizione una data posteriore all'agosto 1515, affermando che il Paganini ha letteralmente copiato la edizione aldina del 1515 "con la quale il di lui testo consuona dappertutto". Anche Michele Barbi, "Della fortuna di Dante nel sec. XVI", a pag. 111 crede che l'edizione del Paganini "sia contraffazione della seconda aldina e non della prima" per minuti confronti che egli ha fatto. Di Luigi Lechi che descrive questa edizione e le assegna la data del 1527, cfr. "Della tip. bresciana nel secolo XV", Brescia, 1854." Cfr. anche "Monumenta Typographica", Olschki, cat.

         De Rerum Praenotatione libri novem. Pro veritate religionis/ contra superstittiosas vanitates editi. [Opera aurea & bracteata / Liber imaginatinis]. + Hymni Heroici tres. Ad sanctissimam trinitatem, ad Christum, et ad Virginem Mariam, una cum commentariis LV culentiss. ad Io. Thomam filium. Additis sparsim ab ipso auctore pauculis, que in priori impressione deerant. Eiusdem Sylua. Eiusdem Staurostichon, hoc est Carmen de mysteriis Crucis Germaniam delapsis.

      Strassburg, Knobloch, 1506-7 + 1511 4to. Bound in one very nice full mottled calf binding from ab. 1800, with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. A bit of wear to extremities. Occasional browning, but all in all very nice and clean. 289 ff (without the white blanks) + (4), xcvi, (7), (4, -index & errata).. Scarce first edition of Giovanni Francesco Pico's seminal "Opera", issued by Pico himself, in which some of his most important works appear for the first time, e.g. "De Rerum Praenotatione", "De fide ordine" and the "Staurostichon" as well as his translation of Justin the Martyr's "Admonitio", here bound with the highly important second edition of the "Hymni heroici tres". The present publication occupies a cenrral place in the development of Renaissance thought. Through the "Opera" of Pico, skepticism came to play a dominant role in the development of early modern thought. "Telesio, Bruno, Galileo, and others also employed the same arguments which Pico had brought to the consciousness of Renaissance Europe. Gianfrancesco Pico's skeptical techniques did not die with him, but lived on to produce a tangible, recognizable influence on the intellectual ambience of early modern Europe." (Schmitt, p. 7). This seminal "Opera", published 13 years before the publication of Pico's magnum opus ("Examen Vanitatis") and 26 years before his death, is of the utmost importance to the development of Pico's thought and to the development of Renaissance thought in general - "a study on the philosophy of Gianfrancesco Pico della Mirandola would furnish an important addition to our knowledge of the philosophy of the Italian Renaissance" (Schmitt, p. (VII)). The many important works in the present publication are known under the joint title "Opera aurea & bracteata" or "Liber imaginationis". The publication is made up of 9 parts, all of which were also intended for separate sale (and which all have separate paginations). The works included are: "De rerum praenotatione etc.", "De fide et ordine credenda", "De morte Christi & propria cogitanda libri tres", "De studio divinae & humanae philosophiae, libri duo", "De imaginatione", "Vita Io. Pici patrui. Eiusdem de uno & ente/ defensio & alia quaepiam", "Epistolarum libri quattuor ", the translation of Justini's " Admonitio " - together with "Saurostichon/de mysterijs Germaniae Heroico carmine" and "Expositio tex. decreti de con. dis.ii. Hilarii", and then follows " Ad lectorum " - 6 of the works here are FIRST PRINTINGS. The second edition of the "Hymni heroici" is of the utmost scarcity. It originally appeared in 1507, but only the second edition also contains Pico's famous poem "Staurosticon".This magnificent collection of works by "the first modern sceptic" and "the only serious student of Sextus before the middle of the sixteenth century" (Copenhaver & Schmitt) constitutes a milestone in Renaissance thought. The seminal work "De rerum praenotatione", which appears here for the first time, is among the most important that Pico wrote. It constitutes a fierce attack upon superstition, and a defense of the true religious truths - theories that underpin ALL of his later thought and are of fundamental importance to his later works, including the "Examen". "This is a lengthy work (second in length only to the "Examen Vanitatis" among Pico's works) against pretended modes of prophesy. It is of the same genre as Giovanni Pico's work against astrology and is dedicated to the author's cousin and protector, Alberto Pio. It was first printed in the "opera" of 1506-07... There is no substantial portion of the work extant in manuscript." (Schmitt, p. 192). The "de fide et ordine", which also appears here for the first time, is likewise one of Pico's significant works, although not as philosophical as the previous work. "This is a work of medium length, principally theological, but of some philosophical importance. It was dedicated to Pope Julius II in the first printed edition of 1506-07" (Schmitt, pp. 193-94).The "Staurostichon" is Pico's most famous poem, dedicated to Emperor Maximilian. In spite of the few pages it takes up, it has been the subject of much debate and interpretation throughout the centuries. Apparently "[t]he extant manuscript seems to have been made after the first printed edition [i.e. the present]." (Schmitt, p. 196).Pico's translation of the "Admonitio" (which is no longer attributed to Justin the Martyr) is of great importance. "The first printing of the translation, which is dedicated to Zanobi Acciaiuoli, was in the "opera" of 1506-07. It was often reprinted, remaining a standard translation for most of the sixteenth century." (Schmitt, p. 200). The four books of Pico's letters are also printed here for the first time. "In the three editions of the "Opera" are printed four books of letters. These were prepared for the edition of 1506-07 and were reprinted with few additions in the later editions. Consequently, it seems that the bulk of Pico's personal letters written after 1505 have not come down to us." (Schmitt, p. 200). Giovanni Francesco [Gianfranceso] Pico della Mirandola (1470-1533), not to be confused with his uncle Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494) was a highly important Renaissance thinker and philosopher, who was strongly influenced by the Neoplatonic tradition, but even more so by the preaching of Girolamo Savonarola, whose thought he defended throughout his life. Just like his uncle, Gianfrancesco Pico devoted his life to philosophy, but being a follower of Savonarola and having a Christian mission, he made it subject to the Bible. He even depreciated the authority of the philosophers, above all of Aristotle. "At the very beginning of the 16th century, Gian Francesco Pico, the nephew of Pico della Mirandola, had predicted the final failure of all attempts at reconciliation of the different philosophical movements. Gian Francesco Pico was a thinker of very considerable stature and a follower of Savonarola. There was a touch of tragedy about his personality. For his life was suspended, as it were, between the scaffold of Savonarola and incessant family feuds - in the course of one of which he was finally killed. No wonder that he borrowed from the scepticism of Sextus Empiricus in order to destroy philosophy to make more room for religion." (Garin, p. 133). Gianfr. Pico, a learned scholar and apt reader of classical texts, was the first Renaissance thinker that we know to have seriously studied and used the works of Sextus Empiricus, which were not printed until the 1560'ies, causing a revolution in Renaissance thinking. "The printing of Sextus in the 1560s opened a new era in the history of scepticism, which had begun in the late fourth century BCE with the teachings of Pyrrho of Elis. [...] Before the Estienne and Hervet editions, Sextus seems to have had only two serious students, Gianfrancesco Pico at the turn of the century and Francesco Robortello about fifty years later." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, pp. 240-41). "No significant use of Pyrrhonian ideas prior to the printing of Sextus' "Hypotyposes" has turned up, except for that of Gianfrancesco Pico della Mirandola [...] His writings may seem isolated from the main development of modern skepticism that began with the publication of the Latin translations and modernized formulation of ancient scepticism offered by Michel de Montaigne. However, they represent a most curious use of skepticism that reappears in the early seventeenth century with Joseph Mede and John Dury and the followers of Jacob Boehme and in the early eighteenth century in the writings of the Chevalier Ramsay, the first patron of David Hume, to fortify or justify prophetic knowledge." (Popkin, p. 20). Gianfr. Pico develops his sceptical arguments to their fullest extent in his "Examen" (1520), which is considered his main work. However, the foundation of all these ideas are laid in his earlier works, all the significant of which are present here, in his seminal "Opera"-collection. Together, they constitute the earliest printed testimonies to the use of scepticism and a premonition of the role that scepticism came to play in Renaissance thought, primarily after the first printings of Sextus in the 1560'ies. "The revival of ancient philosophy was particularly dramatic in the case of scepticism. This critical and anti-dogmatic way of thinking was quite important in Antiquity, but in the Middle Ages its influence faded [...] when the works of Sextus and Diogenes were recovered and read alongside texts as familiar as Cicero's "Academia", a new energy stirred in philosophy; by Montaigne's time, scepticism was powerful enough to become a major force in the Renaissance heritage prepared for Descartes and his successors." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, pp. 17-18)."Throughout the early modern period, from Ficino and Pico to Newton and Leibniz, such convictions supported a pattern of historiography that could never have emerged without the humanists, even though it did not preserve their fame for modern times. Other myths of classicism and Christianity outlived the fable of ancient theology because they conflicted less flagrantly with the findings of historyThe purpose of the ancient theology was to sanctify learning by connecting it with a still more ancient source of gentile wisdom that reinforces sacred revelation. Rather than baptize the heathens as Ficino or the older Pico wished, some early modern critics damned them, and one of the most aggressive thinkers of this school was the younger Pico. He saw an impassable gulf between Christian and pagan belief where his uncle had tried to build bridges." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 337).
