         Questiones cocinnæ et argutæ, qcqd erat in Divi Pauli epistolis obscurum, mira brevitate elucidantes nusquam antehac impressæ.

      Louvain, in Aedibus Theodorici Martini Alostensis, 1512. - in-4. CXXIff. 7ff. (nombreuses erreurs de pagination). Plein vélin souple du temps, titre inscrit à l'encre sur le plat supérieur (petits défauts). Edition Originale rarissime des commentaires d'Hugues de Saint-Victor (1096-1141) sur les épîtres de St-Paul. Originaire de Saxe, ce moine théologien et philosophe fut l'un des penseurs qui eurent le plus d'influence sur la vie intellectuelle du Moyen-Age. "L'œuvre qu'il a laissée est considérable. À l'exception de quelques traités réédités, elle n'est malheureusement accessible que dans des éditions très défectueuses, dont celle de Migne (Patrologia latina, t. CLXXV-CLXXVII, Paris, 1854), qui ne fait d'ailleurs qu'en reproduire de plus anciennes, mêle des ouvrages authentiques à d'autres qui ne le sont pas et en néglige d'importants. Telle que nous la connaissons, cependant, l'œuvre de Hugues témoigne de l'extraordinaire curiosité intellectuelle et de la vaste culture de ce maître, qui recommandait à ses disciples de tout apprendre parce que, disait-il, rien n'est inutile" (Encyclopædia Universalis). Cette précieuse édition fut imprimée à Louvain par le célèbre Thierry Martens d'Alost, qui fut le premier imprimeur de la Belgique et le premier à utiliser dans les Pays-Bas les lettres romaines et l'alphabet grec; c'est le premier ouvrage imprimé par lui à Louvain après qu'il ait définitivement établi son atelier dans cette ville. "En 1512, le célèbre Thierry Martens d'Alost établit à Louvain son atelier et sa demeure permanente; il y donne, le 19 décembre, la première édition des commentaires d'Hugues de Saint-Victor sur les épîtres de S.Paul; il y restera jusqu'à l'année de sa mort, 1534; il était, comme chacun sait, revenu à Alost pour y mourir, et ce couronnement d'une noble existence arriva le 28 mai" (Deschamps). Mouillure marginale dans l'angle de quelques feuillets. Rousseurs éparses, quelques taches. Bon exemplaire préservé dans un emboîtage toilé. Van Iseghem, Biographie de Thierry Martens d'Alost, 64. Deschamps, Dictionnaire de Géographie, 761. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Die legend des heyligen vatters Francisci. Nach der beschreybung des Engelischen lerers Bonaventure

      First German edition and a remarkable contemporary coloured copy of the Legenda major beati Francisci, a masterpiece of German illustration, written by the Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor and Doctor of the Church, Saint Bonaventure (1221 - 1274), in 1260 and declared the only authentic biography of Saint Francis by the General Chapter in Paris in 1266. Saint Bonaventure ranks high as a Doctor of the Church, and one of the foremost philosophers and scholastic theologians of the middle ages. Die Legende des heyligen vatters Francisci was printed by Holtzel on behalf and at the expense of the Tyrolean benefactor of the Franciscan church in Schwaz, Caspar Rosenthaler. Holtzel was active as a printer in Nuremberg since 1499. In 1511 he printed Durer´s Life of Mary and employed as illustrators for his printings Durer´s foremost collaborators, such as Hans Baldung Grien, Hans von Kulmbach and Wolf Traut who was commissioned with the illustration of the present book. It ranks among Traut´s graphic masterpieces; some are dated, however non are signed. A rare book to find complete (last copy recorded Sotheby´s 1993, 5,175 GBP, to Quaritch), not to mention a copy with this spectacular colouring, heightened profusely with gold. Provenance: bookplates of Ambroise Firmin Didot (1790 - 1876), William Davignon (1867 - 1924), and Jean Furstenberg (1890 - 1982).

      - 4 tomes en 4 volumes in-16. 10ff. 404ff. chiffrés. 9ff. (1f.blanc). + 442pp. 2ff. (1f.blanc). + 426pp. (i.e. 421). 5ff. + 595pp. 6ff. Plein maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs ornés, pièces de titre et de tomaison, tranches dorées (reliure de la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle, menus défauts). Précieuse réunion des quatre parties parues séparément de l'un des plus célèbres romans de chevalerie espagnols. Paru pour la première fois en 1512, il faisait suite au roman de Palmerin d'Olive (1511) dont il racontait les aventures des deux fils, Primaleón et Galendós. "Le Palmerín de Oliva eut une première édition en 1511 et semble bien être une imitation de l'Amadis. On y retrouve, en effet, des épisodes semblables : naissance secrète de Palmerin, amours de Palmerin et de Polinarda, triomphe de Palmerin sur le Grand Serpent qui garde la fontaine merveilleuse d'Artifaria. Palmerin résiste lui aussi à la séduction d'autres princesses et devient, comme Esplandian, empereur de Constantinople. Le Primaleón conte les aventures des deux fils de Palmerin, Primaleón et Polendos, ainsi que celles de Don Duardos, prince d'Angleterre. Cervantès, qui fait brûler le Palmerín de Oliva, ne mentionne pas le Primaleón, mais fait, en revanche, un éloge, jugé excessif de nos jours, du Palmerín de Inglaterra, roman dont le héros est le fils de Don Duardos et qui semble bien être l'œuvre d'un auteur portugais. Les épisodes merveilleux s'y multiplient et le plus célèbre est sans doute celui de la coupe magique, où étaient congelées les larmes de Brandisia" (Encyclopaedia Universalis). "Le roman met nettement l'accent sur la galanterie; mais les éléments réalistes y trouvent plus de place" (Laffont-Bompiani). Précieux exemplaire relié au 17e siècle en maroquin rouge. Palau, 237223, 237225, 237226 et 237227: "Actualmente son muy difíciles de reunir las cuatro partes". Ebert, "A General Bibliographical Dictionary" (1837), 17929: "This edition is the most prized in France". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Accius Plautus ex fide, atque auctoritate complurium librorum manuscriptorum opera Dionys. Lambini Monstroliensis emendatus: ab eodémque commentariis explicatus.[Geneva], heirs of Eustache Vignon, 1595. 4to. With a woodcut printer's device on title-page and some woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemporary slightly overlapping vellum, spine reinforced with strips of medieval manuscript leaves.

      - Adams P-1512; USTC 451501; for Schutken see: De Bruin, De statenbijbel en zijn voorgangers, pp. 30-32. Plautus's twenty comedies, including the important commentaries by the French scholar Denis Lambin (1520-1572). The present volume is especially interesting because of the four manuscript fragments that have been used to reinforce the spine. They come from a Dutch translation of the New Testament by Johan Schutken (d. 1423) of the Windesheim monastery, dated ca. 1390. The fragments contain passages from the 20th chapter of the Gospel of Luke (a transcript is available on request). Schutken's translation was the most widely read Bible in Dutch in the Middle Ages, but surviving copies are rare. With manuscript library inscription on title-page. Faint and very minor marginal waterstaining, wormhole in first part of the book, only slightly affecting the text and a tiny stain on pp. 230 and 429, otherwise in very good condition. Binding partially detached from bookblock, allowing study of the manuscript fragments. Overall in good condition.

Leaves are untrimmed, fore-edges mostly frayed, a few annotations present in contemporary hand. The paper is lightly browned throughout with marginal soiling and occasional spotting. Few leaves have short closed tears, some leaves with paper repairs at gutter and fore-margin (not affecting text or images). An outstanding copy of an impossibly rare work, printed on strong paper. Complete. ----Nijhoff-Kronenberg 1223; Coppens, Quaerendo 39, 2009, p.168-205; Panzer VI, 5, 17; PMM 36 (first Italian ed.); Dibner 121 (2nd Latin ed.); Heirs of Hippocrates (1522 Lat. ed.); Norman, Grolier Medicine 10 (1st Latin and Italian eds.); not in Wellcome or Durling/NLM. Exceedingly rare with only 9 copies known to date of which 2 are incomplete. According to C. Coppens, 2 are in The Netherlands (Amsterdam Univ. Lib. and a fragment in the Koninklijke Lib., The Hague), 2 in Belgium (Royal Lib. Brussels and an incomplete copy at Univ. Lib. Leuven), 2 in Copenhagen and 1 with the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. According to USTC, a further copy is at Houghton Library, USA. No copies are in Wellcome Library or the National Library of Medicine. No copies in Germany, Italy or the U.K. The Antwerp 1512 edition of Ketham's Fasciculus is the first illustrated book on medicine in the Netherlands (Coppens). On 26 May 1512 Claes de Grave in Antwerp brought out a Dutch translation of the Fasciculus on to the market. The translator, a certain Petrus Antonianus (Peter Antonissen or something similar) identifies himself in a preface, the Prologhe, and says that he has translated the book from the Latin for the honour of Antwerp and for the benefit of ordinary people, "ten profi jte vanden gemeinen volcke" (Coppens, p.175-6). In January 1512, the printer-bookseller and bookbinder Claes de Grave was granted the privilege by the Council of Brabant in Brussels to print in the vernacular, among others, Ketham's Fasciculus Medicine and Cube's Den groten herbarius [The great Herbal]. Ketham's work has evidently been compiled from two editions of the Fasciculus; the colophon appears on the last leaf of the penultimate gathering. (Nijhoff-Kronenberg 1223). As is suitable for books in the vernacular, a considerable number are illustrated or at least have a richly adorned title page. The woodcuts are by various artists and differ in quality. Some have clearly been taken over from elsewhere. For his first production he certainly made a huge effort and had new woodcuts made for the Fasciculus based on the cycle first published by De Gregori. De Grave followed in the footsteps of the Venetian publisher who produced the first illustrated medical book in Italy, when, so many years later, he brought the first illustrated medical book in the Netherlands on to the market. It is no slavish copy of the Italian model. In the first place the Italian Renaissance has not yet reached the Netherlands apart from some small decorative elements. As the Latin text is translated into Dutch, so too the Italian illustrations are translated, but the order is changed. Some illustrations are not included, for one a different model is used, and a diagram not found in the Venetian cycle is included (Coppens, p.177). Contains the texts of Joannes Jacobi's Regimen contra pestilentiam; Pietro da Tossignano's Consilium pro peste evitanda; and Mondino dei Luzzi's Anatomia, edited by Petrus Andreas Morsianus. Woodcuts included are: Vein man (leaf a5r), zodiacal man (leaf d2v), pregnant woman (leaf d3v), wound man (leaf f3r), disease man (leaf g5r), scene at the bedside of a plague patient (leaf h4v), human skeleton (leaf I1v), urinoscopy scene (leaf r6v) and Flask Wheel, divided into two wheels (s1r-v). The frontispiece woodcut of the Latin and Italian editions with Petrus de Montagnana and the anatomy class are not included. Content: (From title leaf:) Inde[n] eerste[n] Een tractaet om die viere naturen en[t] complectien der mensche[n] En[t] alderha[n]de siecheden te kennene -- Een tractaet van die adere[n] te latene oft te flobothomerene teghen alderhande ghebreken -- Een tractaet van die Juditien der aderen en[t] des bloets met vele schoone cautelen -- Een tractaet om te latene van dye Astronomie -- Een tractaet teghen die ghebreken der vrouwen -- Sommighe probleumata en[t] natuerlike vraghe[n] van die lede[n] der generatien -- Een tractaet vander Cyrurgie teghen alderhande quetsuere[n] en[t] contusien en[t] ongheuallen -- Een tractaet om veelderhande nootskelijcke saluen en[t] plaesteren te componerene -- Een tractaet dat alle die namen va[n] alle siecheden des lichaems declarere[n]de is.

Marsi’s commentary on Ovid’s Fasti had a ‘supplemental influence’ on William Shakespeare’s ‘The Rape of Lucrece’ and primarly drew most of his material from Ovid for that work.While Marsus was most known for this commentary, originally written ca. 1460, he was also among other 15th-century poets who praised homoeroticism in their works. The Fasti (traditionally known in English as the "Book of Days") is a six-book Latin poem written by the Roman poet Ovid and published in 8 AD. Ovid is believed to have left the Fasti incomplete when he was exiled to Tomis by the emperor Augustus in 8 AD. Written in elegiac couplets and drawing on conventions of Greek and Latin didactic poetry, the Fasti is structured as a series of eye-witness reports and interviews by the first-person vates ("poet-prophet" or "bard") with Roman deities, who explain the origins of Roman holidays and associated customs—often with multiple aetiologies. Publius Ovidius Naso (43 BC – AD 17), known as Ovid in the English-speaking world, was a Roman poet who lived during the reign of Augustus. He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature.

         Accius Plautus ex fide, atque auctoritate complurium librorum manuscriptorum opera Dionys. Lambini Monstroliensis emendatus: ab eodémque commentariis explicatus.[Geneva], heirs of Eustache Vignon, 1595. 4to. With a woodcut printer's device on title-page and some woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemporary slightly overlapping vellum, spine reinforced with strips of medieval manuscript leaves.

      Adams P-1512; USTC 451501; for Schutken see: De Bruin, De statenbijbel en zijn voorgangers, pp. 30-32. Plautus's twenty comedies, including the important commentaries by the French scholar Denis Lambin (1520-1572). The present volume is especially interesting because of the four manuscript fragments that have been used to reinforce the spine. They come from a Dutch translation of the New Testament by Johan Schutken (d. 1423) of the Windesheim monastery, dated ca. 1390. The fragments contain passages from the 20th chapter of the Gospel of Luke (a transcript is available on request). Schutken's translation was the most widely read Bible in Dutch in the Middle Ages, but surviving copies are rare. With manuscript library inscription on title-page. Faint and very minor marginal waterstaining, wormhole in first part of the book, only slightly affecting the text and a tiny stain on pp. 230 and 429, otherwise in very good condition. Binding partially detached from bookblock, allowing study of the manuscript fragments. Overall in good condition.

The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.

         Asiae VIII Tab / Medius meridianus 160, ad quem applicantur reliqui iuxta rationes parallelorum 42 u 54.

      Artist: Ptolemy/ Gerhard Mercator Claudius ( - 1594 ) ; issued in: Bruxelles; date: 1578 1512 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Small tears at the margin restored, little stains and browning; size in cm : 35 x 40,5 - description: Decorative map shows a part of China with Mongolia and many decorative representations as tents, hunting scene, cows etc.The rare first issue from Mercator?s definitive edition of Ptolemy?s Geography. This map depicts the area now known as China and Mongolia. Specifically, it shows the lands of Scythia Extra Imaum and Serica. Scythia Extra Imaum refers to the territory of the nomadic Scythians to the east of the Tian Shan mountain range, and the several vignettes within the map illustrate various aspects of nomadic life. Serica was a mysterious land thought to be the source of silk: indeed, the placename literally means ?the land where silk comes from.? Meeting in this map are two of the most important figures in the history of geography. Geographic data and mapmaking instructions left by the Alexandrian, Claudius Ptolemy (fl. A.D. 127-180), became the foundation of mapmaking as we know it today. And it was Gerard Mercator (1512-1594), the great Flemish geographer, whose edition of Ptolemy was considered the most accurate. In particular, Mercator?s maps conformed more closely to Ptolemy?s original design than any of the several earlier editions. Mercator?s became the standard text, with many editions following this one as late as the 18th century. Mercator in 1540 published Literarum latinarum, the first instructional handbook in the use of the italic hand to appear outside of Italy. It was also the first work to offer instruction in the use of italic script in the engraving of maps. The maps in Mercator?s Ptolemy are arguably the finest demonstrations Mercator provided in the use of italics. Moreover, ?the beauty and legibility of the best sixteenth and severteenth-century Dutch maps can be traced in large measure to Mercator?s influence? (Karrow, p. 382). - Vita of the artist: "Gerardus Mercator (1512 - 1594)He was a cartographer, philosopher and mathematician.

In 1908, he filmed what may have been the first motion picture of an active volcano, a 20-minute film of Kilauea, camping out for several weeks on the crater's rim and wrapping both his camera and himself in asbestos during filming for protection against the extreme heat. Although the film was marketed early in 1909, and continued to sell and be used on the lecture and film circuits through at least 1913, it's official mainland premier was at the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, as part of the Hawai'i exhibit.It is worth noting that some have suggested that this broadside was instead issued in conjunction with magic lantern slide lectures given by famed Hawai'i photographer Ray Jerome Baker. However, Baker's lectures appear to have been more educational than promotional, with rather staid titles like "Uncommon Hawaii"; this was particularly true by the 1920s, as he placed greater and greater emphasis on using his photography to document Hawai'i and Hawaiian life prior to Westernization. Moreover, the sensationalist marketing style of the broadside we offer here, with its bold lettering and prominent featuring of Kilauea, its heavily promotional tone, and its likely provenance being a basement in Portland, OR, where other Robert Kates Bonine advertising broadsides were discovered, lead us to strongly believe that it was published in conjunction with an early showing of Bonine's film of Kilauea, not Baker's lectures.Institutionally scarce.

Der Franziskaner Richard von Mediavilla (um 1249 - um 1308) war ein bedeutender Theologe des Hochmittelalters, über dessen Leben nicht viel bekannt ist. Möglicherweise studierte er nach seinem Eintritt in den Franziskanerorden erst in Oxford, bevor er 1276 an die Universität von Paris ging. Hier hielt er dann ab 1280 Vorlesungen über die „Sentenzen“ des Petrus Lombardus. 1283 wurde er als Mitglied einer Kommission erwähnt, die sich mit den theologischen Arbeiten des Franziskaners Petrus Johannis Olivi auseinandersetzte. Von 1284 bis 1287 war er an der Universität von Paris als Magister regens tätig. 1295 wurde er zum Provinzial der Francia ernannt. In dieser Eigenschaft scheint er kurz darauf, und zwar im Jahr 1296, persönlich den Eintritt Ludwigs von Toulouse in den Franziskanerorden begleitet zu haben. - Einband stark beschabt u. bestoßen.
