         C. PLINII SECUNDI NOVOVOMENSIS Epistolaru[m] Libri Decem

      Venetiis in Aedib: Aldi Et Andreae Asulani 1508 - Venetiis in Aedib: Aldi, et Andreae Asulani, Venice, 1508. Later full calf with 2 earlier pieces of calf laid down on the later boards. Inscription internally which looks to be in the same pen as a 1907 inscription reads “From Henry VIII’s library”. I have photographed the boards from many angles and certainly the front board has a ‘Tudor Rose’ flanked by 2 angels; the rear board is less easy to discern and seems to be an angel looking at another image, possibly that of Christ. The binding looks to be contemporary with the first inscription dated 1811. The spine joints are cracked and the boards are worn. Unfortunately the boards with the additional leather pieces have been compressed over time making it difficult to examine the images (see photos above). First Aldine Edition. 525 pages. Small 8vo, 6 ½ x 4 inches. DIBDIN notes, "Containing ten books, with many Epistles never before published: it has also the "Panegyric." These are the only editions of Pliny's Epistles that ever issued from the Aldine press. The edition of 1508 [the first edition] is curious from being the first work in which the subscription announces the partnership of Aldus with his father-in-law Asulanus. It is compiled from some MSS. which Mocenigo brought from France to Italy, and which Aldus says are not only very correct, but which one would suppose to be as ancient as the time of Pliny himself".   Condition Report Externally Spine – fair to good condition with wear and chips taken out of the leather, the gilt is still bright enough Joints -  poor condition – cracked but holding the boards Corners – good condition - bumped Boards – good condition – worn but in good condition and containing the 2 supposed HenryVIII library binding pieces which the binder saw fit to add a scroll to Page edges – Good condition with some light foxing.  Top edge darkened. See above and photos Internally Hinges – fair condition – cracked but holding the boards. Front paste down – good condition Front free end paper – good condition Title – Good condition – inscription cut off to the top, faded with some staining, worming Pages – Good condition – generally good, worming to the front and rear pages, largely to the margins and either worm or punch holes throughout. Otherwise quite tidy. See photos Publisher: see above. Publication Date: 1508 Binding: Hardback [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Patent of nobility, official copy, donated by Emperor Maximilian I (1459-1519) to Michiel Gillis (ca 1480-1550) citizen of Antwerp and secretary to Maximilian I.

      Holy Roman Empire, Innsbrück d.d. 7 april 1508 (copy d.d. 4 December 1575). 28 x 49 cm. Vellum charter. Latin text, manuscript, with a hand painted coloured coat-of-arms. Copied by Henricus Rogge, notary for the council of Brabant. Somewhat grimed and some small holes, coat-of-arms worn at the folds. This very rare official copy of a patent of nobility was issued to Michiel Gillis, citizen of Antwerp (ca 1480-1550) who acted as secretary to the Habsburg emperor Maximilian I (1459-1519). Michiel Gillis was the son of Peter Gillis or Gilies who died in 1515. Michiel Gillis had a nephew named Jan Gillis who was pensioner of the city of Antwerp. His personal archive has been preserved in the Antwerp municipal archives. This document contains some additional information concerning Michiel Gillis, his uncle. Maximilian's wife, Mary of Burgundy, had inherited the vast Burgundian domains in France and the Low Countries upon her father's death in the Battle of Nancy on 5 January 1477. Already before his coronation as the King of the Romans in 1486, Maximilian decided to secure this distant and extensive Burgundian inheritance to his family, the House of Habsburg, at all costs. The wedding contract between Maximilian and Mary stipulated that only the children of bride and groom had a right to inherit from each, not the surviving parent. Mary tried to bypass this rule with a promise to transfer territories as a gift in case of her death, but her plans were confounded. After Mary's tragic death in a riding accident on 27 March 1482 near the Wijnendale Castle, Maximilian's aim was now to secure the inheritance to one of his and Mary's children, Philip the Handsome. Some of the Netherlands provinces were hostile to Maximilian, and they signed a treaty with Louis XI in 1482 that forced Maximilian to give up Franche-Comté and Artois to the French crown. Maximilian continued to govern Mary's remaining inheritance in the name of Philip the Handsome. After the regency ended, Maximilian and Charles VIII of France exchanged these two territories for Burgundy and Picardy in the Treaty of Senlis (1493). Thus a large part of the Netherlands stayed in the Habsburg patrimony which explains the presence of Michiel Gillis at the court of Maximilian in Innsbrück. H140

With a woodcut on the title-page showing the author in his study, 1 woodcut illustration, 1 woodcut diagram, woodcut tables in the text and more than 20 woodcut decorated initials plus repeats. Recased in ca. 1700(?) limp parchment.

      Adams G377; Netherlandish books 13081; Nijhoff & Kronenberg 970; Ortroy, Gemma Frisius 48; USTC 404002; DSB X, pp. 473-476. First edition, in the original Latin, of a pioneering introduction to practical mathematics, progressing from simple arithmetic to fractions, roots and some basic concepts of plain and solid geometry and algebra, including commercial applications, by the Frisian-born physician, mathematician, instrument maker and cartographer, Gemma Frisius (1508-1555), Professor of Medicine at Louvain. While assuming no prior knowledge and aimed at beginners (the title-page emphasises the ease with which one can learn the subject) it covers topics that were not yet a normal part of a general education in 1540, when Europe still lagged behind the Islamic world, but were to become essential in the rising fields of navigation, manufacturing and international trade and commerce.With an occasional early marginal note. With running heads trimmed off in 2 leaves and slightly shaved on 4 other pages, and a small worm trail restored in a few leaves, slightly affecting an occasional word of the text. Still in good condition, with only minor marginal smudges and an occasional very faint marginal water stain. Binding also good. First edition of a book that revolutionized mathematical education in Renaissance Europe.

         Les triumphes de France translatez de latin en françois par maistre Jehan d'Ivry. Les Faictz et gestes de tres reverend pere en dieu monsieur le legat translatez de latin en françois par maistre Jehan d'Ivry.

      1508. Due opere in un volume in-8°; 54 cc. (compreso il frontespizio con marca tipografica al recto e incisione in legno e piena pagina al verso, e altre 9 xilografie a piena pagina lungo il testo) - 10 cc. (compreso il frontespizio con marca tipografica al recto e incisione in legno e piena pagina al verso), testo francese e latino. Legatura settecentesca in tutto vitello, tassello in marocchino con titolo e fregi in oro al dorso, filetto in oro ai piatti, merletto interno, tagli dorati (restauri alle cerniere). Antico rinforzo al margine bianco interno ed esterno del titolo, due macchie non gravi al margine inferiore delle ultime due carte della prima opera e delle prime tre carte della seconda. Esemplare proveniente dalle collezioni Fairfax Murray (Bibl. Fairfax Murray I, 127) e Silvain Brunschwig (ex libris al contropiatto anteriore). Esemplare proveniente dalle collezioni Fairfax Murray e Brunschwig contenente la prima edizione dei Triumphes de France e il poema Les Faictz et gestes. Accompagna il testo un notevole apparato iconografico che comprende tra l'altro 10 grandi xilografie a piena pagina (alcune ripetute), raffiguranti scene di battaglia e scene della vita di corte. I Triumphes sono un poema eroico che Jean D'Ivry tradusse dall'originale latino di Charles Curre (il cui testo latino è qui stampato a margine), che tratta della campagne francesi in Italia al principio del secolo XVI e celebra le gesta del generale Bérault Stuart d'Aubigny. Seguono una ballade, due rondeaux e il poema Origine des Francois. La seconda opera, Les Faictz et gestes, è un poema di F. Andrelin il cui testo latino è a margine della traduzione francese, sempre di D'Ivry. Sia Brunschwig che Brunet segnalavano che la seconda sezione dovrebbe constare di 28 carte, mentre nel nostro esemplare sono 10; Fairfax Murray, invece, non riteneva la presente copia incompleta, e probabilmente a ragione dal momento che, come sostiene J. Britnell, le "10 leaves signed A, Andrelini's poem [i.e. i Faictz]... was printed separately more than once in 1508"; e ancora: "In existing copies these celebrations of French prowess [ i.e. i Triumphes e i testi della prima parte] are regularly bound with other texts: Les Faictz et gestes de très révérend père... and L'Exil de Gennes la superbe...with, in some copy, L'Epitaphe de maistre Guy de Rochefort... There is also further verse by Jean D'Ivry, an Epistre aux Rommains" (Britnell). A conferma che la composizione generale poteva variare a seconda degli esemplari, si confrontino le copie di Parigi (BnF NUMM- 71933), dove l'ordine dei testi è diverso (i Faictz sono posti dopo la c. eviii della prima parte, prima del poema L'Origine des Francois), e la copia della British Library (C.34.h.9), che presenta una composizione ancora differente: per un'analisi più dettagliata si rimanda alle note 24, 25, 26 del saggio di Britnell. Bibl. Fairfax Murray I, 127. Cat. Brunschwig 1955, nr. 394. Brunet II, 774. J.

Paris, Jehan Barbier pour Jehan Petit. 1 volume petit in folio de 103 feuillets chiffré , deux feuillets de table et 16 feuillets non chiffrés. Impression en lettres rondes sur deux colones à 55 lignes lettrines et figures . Au colophon impression de Jean Barbier 1509 le dernier du mois Aout. 29 x 20,5 cm 11,5 x 8,25' Crinitus Pierre De honesta disciplina Paris, Josse Bade, 1508 - 1510. 139 feuillets chiffrés, 139 Impression en lettres rondes à 46 longues lignes. Au dernier colophon, Janvier 1510. Collations conformes. Le tout en reliure monastique de l'époque, restaurations au dos, traces de fermoirs . Une mouillure affecte les premiers feuillets, puis s'estompe au feuillet 12. Elle devient impercepible, papier sain et encore bien craquant. Elle réaparait peu génante en fin de volume mais en marge et angle intérieur. Isidore de Seville Théologien est un chroniqueur érudit espagnol, mort en 636 à Séville. Il joua un rôle considérable dans les affaires de la péninsule, fit un voyage à Rome pour voir Grégoire le grand et présida les conciles de Séville et de Tolède. Il a composé de nombreux livres, dont un livre des étymologies ou origines, l'encyclopédie des connaissances humaines au moyen age, le plus célèbre de tous ses ouvrages. C'est notre post incunable ! Celui-ci traite de sujets forts divers et reprend effectivement les connaissances de l'époque en les illustrant parfois de figures. Quelques exemples : De la philosophie, de l'arithmétique, de la géométrie, mais aussi, de la musique en trois divisions, de la musique harmonique organique et rythmique, d'astronomie, de la forme du monde, du ciel, des phases de la lune et des éclipses et de la terre, et de tant d'autres sujets. Nous avons ainsi une exceptionnelle représentation moyenâgeuse in texte de la terre, elle reprend la forme T dans l O , mais de manière un peu différente elle est déjà orienté avec les quatre points cardinaux et non avec le ciel et l enfer, ce qui est très moderniste.Toutefois dans le texte " paradisos e locus in orientis partibus " il situe bien le paradis en partie haute dans l orient. Ce premier ouvrage est donc passionnant et à découvrir. Le deuxième livre est de Pietro Ricco dit Crinito (le chevelu) poète et bibliographe Italien, né à Florence en 1465, mort vers 1504. Élève de Politien, il le remplaça dans sa chaire d'Éloquence et se chargea comme lui de l'éducation de quelques enfants de famille. Ses poésies latines ne manquent pas d'éloquence mais elles ont conservées moins de célébrité que ses ouvrages en prose. Entre autre, son traité De honnesta disciplina dans lequel, à l'exemple d'Augelle dans les nuits attiques, il traite un grand nombre de questions d'éruditions, d'histoires de philosophie. Le bibliophile de l'époque n'a donc probablement pas relié par hasard ces deux ouvrages ensemble. Ils se complètent et traitent à eux deux la plupart des sujets que pouvait souhaité connaître un érudit en ce tout début de XVIeme siecle. L'impression : Ici le caractère gothique est déjà abandonné pour une police proche du Garamont, ce qui est tout à fait avant gardiste. Le premier incunable est imprimé sur deux colonnes de 55 lignes, illustré de lettrines à fonds criblés de nombreux petits bois et d'un arbre des filiations pleine page tout à fait exceptionnel. (In Larousse XIXeme tome 9 page 807 tome 5 page 528, Moreri 1759) Une impression avec la célèbre marque de Josse Bade, une autre par Barbier pour Jehan Petit. Rare ensemble de deux superbes impressions parisiennes très modernes et avant gardistes pour 1510. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

From Brittany and died in Toulouse, he was a preacher of Louis XI and the Duke of Burgundy. His reputation is mainly based on the preaching he did during the years 1494 and 1508 in the church of Saint-Jean en Greve in Paris and strange liberties he gave it. He seemed never find the word hard enough nor sufficiently vivid expression to his sermons. "Nobody had ever attacked all classes and all social professions more boldly, virulence and tasteless. Each of his sermons is a bitter and outrageous satire, covered with foul language, trivial, and words borrowed from bad places of the lowest "(Hoefer). The style of Olivier Maillard was rated "Macaronic" by Sainte-Beuve in his historical and critical Table of poetry and the French theater in the eighteenth century. See Moreau, chronological inventory Parisian editions of XVIII century. "Brother Olivier Maillard was a preacher of the fifteenth century who acquired much fame pronouncing several Latin sermons mixed with French, in which he declaimed against the vices of the great, the church people and lawyers.

      [Colophon:] Venice: Giovanni & Bernardino Rosso, 6 May 1508. First edition of this very rare and important collection of commentaries on the Sphere of Sacrobosco, together with original works on the same subject, including the first edition of the De spera of Robert Grosseteste (ca. 1175 - 1253), "the central figure in England in the intellectual movement of the first half of the thirteenth century" (DSB), and the first printing of the commentaries on Sacrobosco by Pierre d'Ailly (1351-1420) and Bartolomeo Vespucci, nephew of the explorer, navigator and cartographer Amerigo Vespucci. "A scarce edition, quoted but never seen by Lalande. It seems also to have been unknown to Prince Boncompagni, who mentions the reprint of 1518" (Libri Catalogue). Very little is known of Sacrobosco's life. "About 1220 he went to Paris, where he spent most of his life and where he was elected as a member of the university on 5 June 1221. Elected professor of mathematics soon afterward, he won wide and enduring renown and was among the first exponents in the thirteenth century of the Arab arithmetic and algebra. By 1231 he was the outstanding mathematician and astronomer... Sacrobosco's fame rests firmly on his De sphaera, a small work based on Ptolemy and his Arabic commentators, published about 1220 and antedating the De sphaera of Grosseteste. It was quite generally adopted as the fundamental astronomy text, for often it was so clear that it needed little or no explanation. It was first used at the University of Paris... During the middle ages the De sphaera enjoyed great renown, and from the middle of the thirteenth century it was taught in all the schools of Europe. In the sixteenth century it gained the attention of mathematicians, including Clavius. As late as the seventeenth century it was used as a basic astronomy text... After Manilius' Astronomica, The Sphere was the first printed book on astronomy (Ferrara, 1472). Twenty-four more editions appeared in the following twenty-eight years, and more than forty editions from 1500 to 1547" (DSB). De sphaera attracted numerous commentaries from the thirteenth through to the seventeenth centuries. We find in this collection two commentaries from the early 15th century. That of Pierre d'Ailly, a French astrologer, theologian and, from 1411, cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, was first published in the present collection ff. 71r - 87r). He studied in Paris, becoming rector of the Collège de Navarre in 1384 and chancellor of the University of Paris from 1389 to 1395. His Imago mundi (ca. 1410) influenced Christopher Columbus in his estimates of the size of the world. The date of composition of his 'fourteen questions' on De sphaera is uncertain. Topics covered include: whether astrology is part of the mathematical or natural sciences; whether mathematical entities are wholly abstracted from motion, matter and sensible qualities; whether there are precisely nine celestial spheres; whether the movement of the primum mobile about the earth is uniform (d'Ailly decides that it is uniformly difform); whether the celestial spheres below the primum mobile have several movements, whether the heavens and four elements are spherical; whether there can be equinox over the whole earth simultaneously; whether all ten circles are true circles; whether latitude can be told from the elevation of the pole; whether the distances of the poles of the zodiac from the poles of the universe equal the maximum declination of the sun; whether it is possible for two equal arcs to begin to rise simultaneously, yet always more of one rise than that of the other; whether natural days are unequal; whether only one northern quarter of the globe is habitable; whether eccentrics and epicycles are necessary; and whether eclipses of sun and moon are possible (see Thorndike, pp. 39-40). Francesco Capuano da Manfredonia (fl. 15th century) was a professor of astronomy at Padua. His important commentary on De sphaera (ff. 1r - 54v) may have influenced Copernicus. "In 1499, while Copernicus studies in Bologna, the commentary on Sacrobosco's Sphere by the Padua master Francesco Capuano da Manfredonia first appears in print. It will be revised and reprinted several times thereafter. Like Copernicus, Capuano has a high view of astronomy and mingles astronomical and physical considerations (flies moving on wheels, men on ships, impetus, comets, raptus). Also, Capuano offers a flawed argument against a two-fold (diurnal and zodiacal) motion of the Earth. Multiple thematic resonances between Capuano's commentary and De revolutionibus, I, 5-11, suggest the hypothesis that Copernicus is answering Capuano, whose work was owned by Joachim Rheticus, if not Copernicus himself" (Shank). According to Houzeau & Lancaster (2269), Capuano's commentary first appeared at Venice in 1495. The other two commentaries in the collection date from the late 15th or early 16th centuries. The great French theologian and humanist Jacques le Fèvre d'Étaples (ca. 1455 - 1537) was instrumental in introducing a new curriculum of studies in Paris, with an emphasis on science and mathematics, and the philosophy of Aristotle instead of the Scholastics. A prolific author and commentator, his commentary on De sphaera (ff. 54v - 70v) was first published at Basel in 1485, with several later editions through the first half of the sixteenth century. It was followed a year later by his commentaries on the Arithmetica and Musica of Boethius, and the Arithmetica of Jordanus Nemorarius. First published in the present collection, the latest commentary found here (ff. [iir - iiiv) is that of Bartolomeo Vespucci, nephew of Amerigo Vespucci, and professor of astronomy at the University of Padua. In 1504 Machiavelli sent a now lost letter to Bartolomeo asking if it was possible for a man to resist the influence of the stars. In his reply, Vespucci reassured Machiavelli that "all the ancients proclaimed with one voice that the wise man himself is able to alter the influences of the stars." Over the next few years Machiavelli would continue to contemplate the possibilities of combating destinies that had been written in the stars. The present volume also contains (ff. 90r - 94v) an attack by Regiomontanus (1436-1476) on the Theorica planetarum of the prolific translator of Arabic scientific works Gerard of Cremona (ca. 1114 - 1187) (although some scholars believe that the author is actually the obscure mid-13th century astrologer Gherardo de Sabbonieta). The Theorica planetarum itself was first printed at Ferrara in 1472, Regiomontanus's polemic at Nürnberg two years later. Among the original works in the collection are two which competed with Sacrobosco's De sphaera as the standard textbook of theoretical astronomy in the late Middle Ages. The most important of these is the De spera of Robert Grosseteste (ff. 87r - 89v). Probably composed between 1215 and 1230, and first published in the present collection, scholars are divided as to whether Grosseteste's work influenced, or was influenced by, that of Sacrobosco. The content and order of treatment of the topics is much the same in both texts, although Grosseteste's is only about half as along as Sacrobosco's. "Grosseteste's first chapter roughly corresponds to Sacrobosco's first and second chapters. Grosseteste's second chapter on equality and diversity of days and nights in different parts of the world, his third chapter on the rising and setting of the signs, and that part of his fourth chapter which is on the sun's eccentricity and the seven climes parallels sections of Sacrobosco's third chapter, where, however, the rising and setting of the signs come first... Grosseteste's last chapter, which opens with the fixed stars and two zodiacs, mobile and immobile, bears less resemblance to Sacrobosco, although it ends, like the latter's fourth and last chapter, with treatment of the moon's course and with eclipses" (Thorndike, p. 11). The second part of the volume comprises the most important 15th century textbook of astronomy, that of Georg Peurbach (1423-1461), the teacher of Regiomontanus. "Around 1454 Peurbach composed his textbook of astronomy, Novae theoricae planetarum (published in Nürnberg, 1473), which became the standard astronomical text for over a century and a half, as well as writing, with Regiomontanus, the Epitome of Ptolemy (published in 1496), the clearest and most accurate exposition of Ptolemaic astronomy in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Following Arab astronomers, Peurbach added trepidation to Ptolemy's six motions of the celestial spheres and substituted solid crystal spheres for the hypothetical circles employed in Ptolemy's Almagest" (Stillwell). Peurbach and Regiomontanus were the outstanding astronomers of their time and their early deaths were "a serious loss to the progress of astronomy [which] left the technical development of mathematical astronomy deprived of substantial improvement until the generation of Tycho Brahe" (DSB). COPAC lists copies at Oxford, University of London (Senate House) and St. Paul's Cathedral only, although there is a copy at BL (lacking title page). We have located no copy at auction.

      - Venedig, J. Tacuinus, 12. Mai 1508. 116 nn. Bl. Neuer Pergament aus altem Material. Posthum erschienene erste Sammelausgabe der Reden des italienischen Humanisten Antonio Mancinelli (1452-1506), der zum Kreis der römischen Akademie um Pomponius Laetus gehörte. In wieweit Mancinelli, so wie sein Lehrer, mehr dem antiken Heidentum als dem Christentum zugeneigt war, ist ungewiss. Man hat vorgegeben, dass ihm "Papst Alexander VI., weil er wider ihn und seinen Sohn Cäsar Borgia eine heftige Rede gehalten, . die Zunge hat ausschneiden lassen. Es ist aber solches unstreitig eine Fabel" (Jöcher III, 95). Mancinellis Reden geben ein Spiegelbild der humanistischen Bildungswelt: von den Aufgaben des Dichters, Historikers und Redners, vom rechten Studieren, von der Regierung, vom religiösen Kultus, von einigen Hauptstücken des Glaubens, von Verlobung und Ehestand, Trauerreden auf verstorbene Zeitgenossen etc. Vom pädagogischen Standpunkt aus besonders interessant die beiden angehängten Schriften über die Erziehungspflichten der Eltern gegenüber ihren Kindern und von der Gehorsamspflicht der Kinder gegenüber ihren Eltern mit zahlreichen Zitaten aus antiken Schriftstellern und aus den Kirchenvätern. - Seltene Postinkunabel; nicht im BM STC und bei Adams. - Etwas gebräunt u. fleckig, Buchblock im letzten Drittel mit Wurmstich im Außensteg u. kl.

         Itinerarium Portugallensium e Lusitania in Indiam et inde occidentem et demum ad aquilonem. [Milan, J. A. Scinzenzeler], 1508.

      1508. Folio (248 x 197 mm). 10, 88 ff. (the two index leaves bound before text). Title with full-page woodcut map (second issue, with "Arabicus" replacing "P[er]sicus"). Early 20th century red morocco with title gilt to spine, boards and dentelles ruled in gilt, all edges gilt. First Latin edition of the most important and "earliest printed collection of voyages and discoveries" (PMM). Also the only edition of this collection of travel reports to include the map showing Africa, Arabia and part of Europe, illustrating for the first time the new discoveries in the eastern hemisphere. This map, not included in the original 1507 Italian edition or any subsequent edition, is the earliest to show Africa completely surrounded by seas and, as one of the first non-Ptolemaic maps to include Arabia, definitely the earliest "modern" printed map to show Mecca. Published in 1508, it raises a controversy still with us more than 500 years later: it labels the Red Sea and the Gulf as a single body of water and calls it the Gulf, but in the first state of the block it was called the "Persian Gulf" ("Sinus Persicus"). For reasons unknown, the editor revised the block with a patch to rename it the "Arabian Gulf" ("Sinus Arabicus"). The map therefore exists in two different states in copies of this edition. Ours is the rarer second one, with "Sinus Arabicus". Considered a "vehicle for the dissemination throughout Renaissance Europe of the news of the great discoveries both in the east and the west" (PMM), the present collection contains reports of the voyages of Columbus, Vespucci, Cabral (Brazil), Cadamos (Africa) and, perhaps most importantly, "the earliest printed account of the voyage of Vasco da Gama" to India (PMM). This voyage to the eastern hemisphere is comparable in importance only to Columbus's in the west, as it "opened the way for the maritime invasion of the East by Europe" (PMM). - Da Gama's pioneering sea voyage ranks amongst the greatest historic events of the second millennium and as "one of the defining moments in the history of exploration" (BBC History, online). It is also considered the turning point in the political history of the Arabian Gulf region, followed as it was by a prolonged period of east-west commerce, conquest and conflict. For better or worse, the discovery of the first all-water trade route between Europe and India catalyzed a series of events that forever changed the political history and geography of the world. Portugal was the first European power to take an active interest in the Gulf region: "Vasco da Gama made the first known reference to this area when he traveled through the Strait of Hormuz to the sheikhdom of Julfar" (Romano). In Julfar, today known as Ras al-Khaimah and part of the United Arab Emirates, Da Gama made contact with the Islamic navigator Ahmed ibn Majid, still remembered as the "first Arabic seaman". On the basis of Portuguese and Arabic records, it has now been established that it was Ibn Majid who finally piloted Vasco da Gama's ship to India using an Arabian map then unknown to European sailors, who previously had been unable to cross the Arabian sea. By gaining trading access to Arabia and India, the Portuguese seized control of the whole region within a few years after Da Gama's discovery and were to dominate the Gulf area for centuries: "In less than two decades, Portuguese forces occupied Julfar and controlled the lower Gulf region. Eventually, the Portuguese extended their presence as far north as the island nation of Bahrein" (Romano). - Engraved bookplate of Dr. Samuel X. Radbill (1901-87) on pastedown. Radbill bought the volume at Sotheby's on 24 July 1939 (lot 176); it remained in his famous collection until it was acquired by us from his descendants in 2014. Foot of map creased as folded for binding, head of first 3 leaves with a stain and last 5 leaves with corner stains, binding slightly rubbed. Overall a very bright and clean copy. Of extraordinary rarity: our copy is one of only three complete copies of the present issue, with "Sinus Persicus" renamed "Sinus Arabicus", to have appeared at auction in the 20th century.

         Libellus de Judaica confessione sive sabbato afflictionis. (Nuremberg, Johann Weißenburger, [150]8).

      1508. 4to. (20) pp. With a title woodcut and 4 woodcuts in the text (title cut repeated). Modern paper boards wrapped in vellum. The rarer of two Latin editions of the "Judenbeichte", both published in 1508, after the "Judenspiegel" the second treatise by the fanatical convert Johann Pfefferkorn (1469-1522/23), in which he discusses his former brothers in the Jewish faith and their celebrations, asserting that the Jews were more corrupting than the devil himself and petitioning the Christian authorities to force all Jews to convert or emigrate. The woodcut illustrations in Pfefferkorn's work are the earliest prints depicting Jewish customs and ceremonies. They include a Kapparot scene, ritual bath, matzo preparation, jumbled together with imaginary representations of Jews telling their sins to crows and a Tashlich service during Rosh Hashanah when sins are cast into water. - Johannes (Josef) Pfefferkorn (1469-1523) was a German Catholic theologian and writer. Born Jewish, possibly in Nuremberg, Pfefferkorn moved to Cologne after many years of wandering. After committing a burglary, he was imprisoned and released in 1504. He converted and was baptized together with his family. Pfefferkorn became an assistant to the prior of the Dominicans at Cologne, Jacob van Hoogstraaten, and under the their auspices published several libellous pamphlets in which he tried to demonstrate that Jewish religious writings were hostile to Christianity, and argued for the destruction of all copies of the Talmud. As late as 1509, Emperor Maximilian empowered Pfefferkorn to confiscate all Hebrew writings in Jewish hands and destroy any he found dangerous. After wide-scale protests, the humanist scholar Johannes Reuchlin was commissioned to give an expert opinion on Jewish writings, which led to a long-running battle of pamphlets between Reuchlin and Pfefferkorn, who was defended by the Dominicans. - Upper margin waterstained at right corners, up to first text lines.

      Augsburg Oeglin et Nadler 22 mai 1508 1 In-folio Plein vélin souple du XVIe siècleEd. originale. 308 x 212 mm.

RARE EDITION ORIGINALE DU PREMIER OUVRAGE TRAITANT DES RELIGIONS ET DES CROYANCES DES DIVERS PEUPLES DU MONDE. Le présent texte est également du plus haut intérêt car on y trouve un passage concernant la decouverte de l'amerique par Christophe Colomb. « Livre rare, dans lequel sont contenus XIV 'Dramata'; il y est fait mention de l'Amérique, au chap. intit. : 'De Insulis nuper inventis et moribus populorum inauditis'. » Le présent ouvrage est également important car il s'agit du premier livre illustré par Hans Burgkmair. Le superbe frontispice en premier tirage représente, outre les différentes religions personnifiées, le pape Julien II et l'empereur Maximilien Ier. La gravure à pleine page porte les armes de l'auteur et est reproduite au verso du même feuillet. Elle n'est présente que dans l'édition originale. Hans Burgkmair (1473-1543) est, avec Holbein l'Aîné, le plus important peintre du début du XVIe siècle à Augsbourg (Bavière) et l'un des graveurs sur bois les plus célèbres du XVIe siècle en Allemagne. L'artiste diffusa grâce à ses gravures les conceptions artistiques de la Renaissance à Augsbourg. « The woodcut was used only in the first edition, of which twenty-five copies have been located so far.» Le nombre d'exemplaires de cette originale était donc estimé à 25 en 1938.

Graesse, Trésor de livres, p. 477 ; Sabin 90127 ; Brunet, supp. II, 685; Harrisse 51 ; Historical Nuggets 2603 ; Elizabeth M. Nugent, PMLA, 1938, 'Johannes Stamler's Dyalogus', p. 989. ***Rare first edition of the earliest work relating to the religions of the varied nations of the world. The present text is also of the highest interest as it contains a passage mentioning the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus. A beautiful copy of this rare work preserved in its 16th century limp vellum.*** Très bon.

         ...Bellum cameracense.

      The alliance of Louis XII, Pope Julius II, Maximilian I, and Ferdinand the Catholic in war against the Venetians was formalized in 1508, and history has given it the name of The League of Cambrai; it came to an end in 1529 with the signing of the peace of Cambrai. The neo-Latin language work offered here is a history of the origins and progress of the war as seen by a Venetian whose observations and comparisons are remarkably wide-ranging -- as evidenced by his including a passage on leaf Q8 verso concerning => battles that the Spaniards were waging on the Island of Hispaniola and elsewhere in the Indies of America. This volume, curiously, does not sport any of the expectable types of title-page that were common by its time. Instead, it simply reads: Andreae / Mocenici / P.V.D. / Bellvm / Came / racense. This bare title-page is printed in roman type, while all else is printed in a very bright, crisp italic. Several woodcut criblé initials are used in text. Provenance: Charles Spencer, Third Earl of Sunderland, lot 8534 in the Sunderland Library sale (1882); later part of the Theological Institute of Connecticut Library. Evidence of Readership: Several notes and marked passages, in ink.

      Soncino, 1508. in - folio, ff. 100 n.n. (ultimo f. bianco presente), legatura antica in cartone rustico (abili restauri al dorso). Dedica del traduttore ad Alfonso d'Aragona cui segue lettera datata ''ex Villula pestanarii, 5 aprile 1507'' indirizzata dal segretario del Marchese di Mantova a Luigi Gonzaga. Edizione originale della traduzione in lingua latina del poema di Arriano su Alessandro Magno. Questo esemplare presenta una curiosa variante al titolo, sconosciuta a Manzoni ''Annali Tipografici del Soncino'', riscontrata in soli altri tre esemplari noti in Biblioteche Italiane, contro i circa 30 che presentano invece il titolo ''Arrianus de rebus gestis Alexandri Regis..''. Si tratta quindi di una prima tiratura dell'opera, identica in tutte le altre parti alla tiratura successiva. Bartolomeo Facio, storico e filosofo alla corte di Alfonso d'Aragona, compie una interessante traduzione dal greco dell'opera dello storico Arriano di Nicomedia (II secolo d.C.) sulla vita, le imprese e le conquiste di Alessandro Magno. Buon esemplare (interessanti note manoscritte coeve al titolo e n.t., nota di possesso di ''Lorenzo Napolini'').

Il Costanzi, originario di Fano (1473 - 1517 ca), fu celebre umanista, professore di latino e greco a Ferrara. Questa edizione, pur non essendo tra le più rare del Soncino, presenta la particolarità di avere un frequente uso del greco, spesso in brani abbastanza lunghi. Il carattere greco venne inciso probabilmente da Francesco da Bologna, attivo anche per Aldo Manuzio. Buon esemplare, lievi aloni d'umido nel margine superiore (al titolo leggesi manoscritto nel XVI sec. l'incipit della Gerusalemme di Tasso "Canto l'armi pietose e il capitano").

La sua reputazione si basa principalmente sulla predicazione che ha fatto nel corso degli anni 1494 e 1508 nella chiesa di Saint - Jean en Greve a Parigi e libertà strani, lo diede. Sembrava non trovare la parola abbastanza forte né espressione sufficientemente chiara per i suoi sermoni. "Nessuno aveva mai attaccato tutte le classi e tutte le professioni sociali più arditamente, la virulenza e insapore. Ognuno dei suoi sermoni è una satira amara e vergognosa, coperto con un linguaggio volgare, banale, e parole prese in prestito da cattive luoghi del più basso "(Hoefer). Lo stile di Olivier Maillard è stato valutato "Macaronic" di Sainte - Beuve nella sua tabella storica e critica della poesia e del teatro francese del XVIII secolo. Vedere Moreau, inventario cronologico edizioni parigine del XVIII secolo. "Il fratello Olivier Maillard era un predicatore del XV secolo, che ha acquisito molta fama pronunciando diversi sermoni latini mescolati con francesi, in cui declamava contro i vizi dei grandi, la gente di chiesa e gli avvocati.

Olivier Maillard (1430-1502), Vicar General of the Franciscan observant of France in 1502, is one of the greatest figures of the Franciscan order at the end of the XV. From Brittany and died in Toulouse, he was a preacher of Louis XI and the Duke of Burgundy. His reputation is mainly based on the preaching he did during the years 1494 and 1508 in the church of Saint-Jean en Greve in Paris and strange liberties he gave it. He seemed never find the word hard enough nor sufficiently vivid expression to his sermons. "Nobody had ever attacked all classes and all social professions more boldly, virulence and tasteless. Each of his sermons is a bitter and outrageous satire, covered with foul language, trivial, and words borrowed from bad places of the lowest "(Hoefer). The style of Olivier Maillard was rated "Macaronic" by Sainte-Beuve in his historical and critical Table of poetry and the French theater in the eighteenth century. See Moreau, chronological inventory Parisian editions of XVIII century.

Sa réputation est principalement fondée sur les prédications qu'il fit pendant les années 1494 et 1508 dans l'église de Saint-Jean en Grève à Paris et les libertés étranges qu'il s'y donna. Il ne semblait jamais trouver de mot assez dur ni d'expression assez imagée pour ses sermons. « Jamais personne n'avait attaqué toutes les classes et toutes les professions sociales avec plus de hardiesse, de virulence et de mauvais goût. Chacun de ses sermons est une satire amère et outrageante, revêtue d'un langage grossier, trivial, et de mots empruntés aux mauvais lieux du plus bas étage » (Hoefer). Le style d'Olivier Maillard fut qualifié de « macaronique » par Sainte-Beuve dans son Tableau historique et critique de la poésie et du théâtre français au XVIIIème siècle. Voir Moreau, Inventaire chronologique des éditions parisiennes du XVIIIème siècle. « Frère Olivier Maillard était un prédicateur du XVème siècle qui acquit beaucoup de célébrité en prononçant plusieurs sermons latins mêlés de français, dans lesquels il déclama contre les vices des grands, des gens d'Eglise et des hommes de loi. » (Brunet III, 1318)
