         Der swangern Frawen und hebammen roszgarten.

      [Cologne: Arnt von Aich, 1513]. An exceptionally fine copy, in an untouched contemporary binding, of one of three editions of this landmark work published at about the same time, this probably being the third (see below). This is the earliest printed textbook for midwives and one of the first printed books devoted to obstetrics, including engravings attributed to the Frankfurt artist Martin Kaldenbach, a pupil of Albrecht Dürer. Although copies of these editions occasionally appear on the market, they are almost always in poor condition, and usually rebound, as a result of extensive use over the centuries. "The most important items in my collection of rare obstetrical books are the 1513 editions of the famous obstetrical textbook, Der Swangern Frauwen und Hebammen Roszgarten by Eucharius Roesslin, a physician from Worms. All three were published in the same year but each was set up and printed differently (Nos. 1, 2, 3). One is dated; the other two are not. There is, of course, no way of knowing which of these three was the real first edition" (Hellman). All three editions are extremely rare. "Roesslin's obstetrical treatise, first published in German in 1513 under the title Der swangern Frawen und hebammen roszgarten, had an enormous impact on contemporary obstetrical practice and remained influential for two hundred years, going through over one hundred editions before the close of the eighteenth century. The work contained little original material, being primarily a survey of Greek and Roman obstetrical literature, but it was the first to deal with obstetrics as a separate subject, and the first to print illustrations of the birth chair and the fetus in utero. It was also the first obstetrical work written especially for midwives, which was the reason for its originally appearing in the vernacular" (Norman). ABPC/RBH record no other copy sold at auction in the last 35 years, and when this copy was sold in 1985 Sotheby's noted that "All these early editions of 1513 are extremely rare; none is recorded as having been sold by auction in England or Germany with the exception of the Hellman-Gunn set sold in London at Bonham's in 1979, which included a rather poor copy of the present issue. It appears that there is only one copy of this issue in America, at the National Library of Medicine, lacking the last signature." OCLC lists copies of the two undated issues (see below) in US at Duke, KSU, Minnesota, Nebraska and Yale, but does not distinguish between them. Provenance: London bookseller and bibliophile Irving Davis (sold Sotheby's, 2-3 April 1985, £18,700); from the library of Jean Blondelet. "What is the importance of this rare work, usually referred to as "Rosengarten"? The opinion held until recent times that this was the first printed work dealing exclusively with obstetrical knowledge is erroneous. In 1476 the Secreta Mulierum of Albertus Magnus made its appearance in print, and about 1495 the Buechlein der Schwangeren Frauen, the so-called "Frauenbuechlein" by Ortolff von Bayerland, also appeared. Both of these can be called obstetrical monographs. The significance of the "Rosengarten" is not due to its being the first printed obstetrical work, but rather to the fact that its text and illustrations resumed a tradition, broken for almost fifteen hundred years. Roesslin's famous pictures of the position of the child closely resemble the sixteen in the manuscripts of antiquity, i.e., Mustio's catechism of women's diseases and midwifery, largely based on Soranus of Ephesus (see Sarton I, 98, 138). "Not only does Roesslin's booklet point back to the distant past, but it also had an enormous influence on the obstetrical practices of the midwives and surgeons of his own time. Latin, the universal language of scholars at that period, was not comprehensible to Roesslin's public. His book in the vulgar tongue or vernacular, the language of the common people, was therefore popular. The great number of reprints of the German edition testifies to this fact, and to the need for such a text for those not conversant with Latin ... "Roesslin established the necessity for thorough instruction of midwives. In his versified preface he censured the wretched condition of the current obstetrics, and the ignorance, carelessness, and superstition of the midwives, who brought about unnecessary deaths of numberless new-born. The infant mortality, Roesslin bluntly labelled murder, for which the guilty ones deserved to be buried alive, or "broken on the wheel," instead of being allowed to receive an honorarium for services rendered. In his book, which he wrote at the order of the Duchess Katherine of Brunswick and Luneburg and which he dedicated to her, he attempted to eliminate, or at least mitigate, these evils. "Eucharius Roesslin, the date of whose birth is uncertain, lived in Freiburg, in Breisgau, in the last decade of the fifteenth and the beginning of the sixteenth century. In 1506 he left there and went to Frankfurt on the Main. He remained at Frankfurt until 1511 with only a slight intermission in 1508 when he was at the court of the Duchess Katherine. In 1513 he became town physician in Worms. He returned to Frankfurt in the same capacity in 1517. There he continued active at his post until his death in 1526 ... "In the "Rosengarten" Roesslin spoke not only from his own obstetrical experience, but quoted passages from the best known medical authors of antiquity and the middle ages, such as Hippocrates, Galen, Rhazes, Avicenna, and Albertus Magnus. Distinguishing his work from the works of his predecessors are the gynecological and obstetrical descriptions which he added, and, above all, the seventeen little pictures of the different positions of the foetus in utero. These are included in all the editions of the "Rosengarten" and its variously titled later editions, and in the several translations. "The representation of twins is new; the remaining sixteen constitute the same number as in the several illustrated manuscripts. As we know today, Mustio's illustrations can be traced back to Soranus of Ephesus, the great gynecologist and obstetrician who lived in Rome at the time of Trajan and Hadrian. Either Soranus was translated by Mustio, or Mustio's work was based on the work of the former. Soranus described the various faulty positions of the child in detail, deeming them important because of their significance in labor and delivery. "In Roesslin's presentation of the foetus in utero we see the same bottle or balloon, resembling a more modern cupping-glass, to which Soranus and Mustio had previously compared the womb (see both the famous Mustio manuscripts, that of the twelfth century in Copenhagen and that of the thirteenth in the Vatican). Since this codex, which is now to be found in the Vatican, was in the library of the Castle at Heidelberg until the year 1623, it is probable that Roesslin saw it there while on a visit from nearby Frankfort or Worms, and that he copied its pictures in order to use them as illustrations for his "Rosengarten." "From the practical obstetrical standpoint, the significance of the "Rosengarten" lies also in the fact that Roesslin again brought to the fore the knowledge of podalic version which had been almost forgotten since the time of Soranus and Mustio. He thus limited cephalic version, which has more theoretical merit but is less practical in execution. "The normal position of the foetus, according to Roesslin, is the head (cephalic) presentation with the hands on the upper thighs, a view which Soranus had already presented. As the next most favorable position, Roesslin designates the complete footling presentation, provided that the arms lie against the body and the hands touch the upper thighs. The same footling presentation, but with the arms directed upwards, "So das Kind erscheinet mit beiden Fuessen und hat die Hend nit neben ihm unter sich gestrecket, sondern iiber sich," is represented as the most dangerous. Strangely enough Roesslin does not consider the transverse position in any way hazardous. "The three membranes surrounding the foetus he calls the "Bueschlein," or "Nachgeburt," "Biles" and "Armatura Conceptis." He describes the signs of labor as pains in the back, pains in the abdomen, pains in the genitals, and heat in the uterus. In dealing with the period of pregnancy, he recommends a laxative diet for healthy women and a strengthening diet for weak ones. He mentions the great survival power of the seven months' child, ascribing to it a greater vitality than that possessed by the child carried in utero for eight months. Today this is, of course, considered erroneous. He also attributes difficult delivery to the smallness of the uterus, to stenosis of the cervix as a consequence of pathological changes in it, abdominal tumors, hemorrhoids, asthenia of abdominal pressure, depressed morale (the psychosomatic designation of that day), abnormal largeness or smallness of the child, pregnancy with twins, too early ending of the pregnancy, too light or too heavy membranes, rupture of the membranes, and death of the baby. "Roesslin recommends a half-sitting position for the woman in labor, preferably on a special birth-stool, whose representation can be found in most editions of the "Rosengarten" and its translations, and which Soranus had already described fourteen hundred years earlier ... "Soranus gave exact instructions for the type of aid to be rendered by the midwife and her assistant during labor. These regulations were repeated by Roesslin. The midwife in clean clothes sits opposite the laboring woman, but a little lower - because the arrival of the foetus ("frucht") proceeds from above downward. Roesslin recommends one or two helpers instead of the three helpers recommended by Soranus. They are pictorially presented in the woodcuts of the "Rosengarten" (Hellman). "Midwives [in the 15th and 16th century] were likely to be married women with children of their own - their personal experience of childbirth was regarded as the most essential midwifery qualification. With no medical education, a midwife's last resort during a difficult labour was in prayer with charms and incantations. Recognition of the status of midwives by the Church was only in connection of midwives baptising dying babies in an emergency, and the mother was always advised to make her confession before the onset of labour, in case she died in childbirth. If the baby was not baptised, it would be 'shut out of heaven' and could not be buried in consecrated ground.   "Labour was a female family ritual excluding all men, with the mother-in-law usually organising events. Rest was considered the cornerstone of all treatment in the middle and upper classes, but female labourers continued with their tasks in fields and barns. Labour was a painful, hard business, made worse by the belief that pain was God's punishment for Eve's transgression in the Garden of Eden and a necessary part of childbirth. Consequently pain-relief was often disapproved of, and comprised herbal and floral treatments, such as opium seeds, chamomile ointment, mugwort tea, raspberry tea and mandrake. It has been estimated that 3% of women died in childbirth during the 15th century, compared to 7 in 100,000 now in the UK, and disease and poor-diet contributed to this number.   "During the postnatal period, a woman had to remain in the home until she had been 'churched'. Churching of women (a religious blessing) after childbirth took place when she was considered to be past 'the unclean' period brought on by labour: this was a happy occasion, often accompanied by a celebration of the woman's return to society. She was also allowed to resume sexual activity at this time. Breastfeeding was the preferred diet for the child's first two years, and had the advantage of providing immunological resistance in the baby against infection, and also in suppressing ovulation and so naturally reducing the birth rate" (Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, "From RCOG Heritage: A 500 year old Rose in our Garden").   The first edition of this work was published at Strasburg in 1513 by Martin Flach (Hellman 1). Two other editions, although undated, had previously been assigned the date 1513 (e.g., by Hellman). However, Josef Benzing ('Zu den ersten Ausgaben des 'Rosengartens' von Eucharius Rösslin,' Das Antiquariat, Wien, 12, Nr. 5/6, 57-58), has assigned dates 1515 and 1518 to these editions, the two being distinguished by the presence of a full-page woodcut and the word 'herbammen' on the title of the latter (Hellman 2), while the former has 'herbamme' and no woodcut (Hellman 3). On this basis, our copy is of the 1518 printing. Benzing also shows that the 1515 edition was printed by Heinrich Gran at Hagenau, and the 1518 by Arnt von Aich at Cologne (previously it had been thought that Gran had issued both undated editions). An English translation by Richard Jonas was published in 1540, printed by Thomas Raynalde, and entitled The Byrth of Mankynde; this was the first book on the subject to be printed in English. It was also translated into Italian, French, Spanish, Dutch, Polish and Czech.   Garrison-Morton 6138; not in Adams; not in Norman; Waller 8091.

Leo Marsicanus finished the work in 1075 after which it circulated in manuscript-form until 1513 with the present publication and the later Aldus-print from 1556.Leo Marsicanus, or Leo of Ostia, (1046-1115), the son of a princely family, entered the Benedictine Monastery of Monte Cassino as a boy of fourteen. "The famous abbot Desiderius had gathered there a group of important churchmen, scholars and artists until the monastery had become the center of learning and art of the time, and in these surroundings Leo received his education. Later, as librarian and archivist, for the convent's great library, which had been increased by Desiderius, he was prepared for the writing of his Chronicle of Monte Cassino. He was named Cardinal Bishop of Ostia by Pope Pascal II, and played an active and important part in the struggles between Henry V and the Pope. These activities prevented his continuing the Chronicle beyond 1075." (IIOT, Leo of Ostia)Among several other subjects the present chronicle records that abbot Desiderius imported craftsmen from Constantinople not only to carry out the decoration of the church but to instruct the abbey monks in their techniques and skills. The new wave of Byzantine influence which was introduced into the arts of Italy at this time may be traced, at least in part, to this conscious attempt by Desiderius to make available the artistic achievements of Byzantium. For this present document remains the principle source of our knowledge.Brunet III:982Sander 4387Esslin 1761Isaac 12578

         Der Swangern Frauwen und Hebammen Rosegarten.

      Strassburg: Martin Flach, 1513. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Strassburg: Martinus Flach, 6 March 1513. 4to (207 x 150 mm). [114] pp. Collation: A-N4 O6 (-O6), title with woodcut border of four blocks by Hans Baldung Grien, four full-page woodcuts comprised of two illustrations in duplicate and twenty smaller woodcuts. Colophon: "Argentine Martinus Flach iunior impressit ... Anno.Mcccccviij." Lacking final blank only. Leaves D2 misbound after D3, N1 after N2 and N3 after N4. Early 20th century full calf over thick wooden boards with single brass clasp, spine with three raised bands, boards ruled and decoated in gilt, binding in the style of Roesslin's dedication copy to Katherine (extremities little rubbed). Text little browned throughout, light soiling and spotting in places, light dampstaining to first three gatherings, old paper repairs to corners or blank margins of fourteen leaves (with browning of repair-paper), small wormtracks throughout (more frequent in first leaves) partially affecting text. Blank verso of title-page backed with thin paper, author's name and year added in contemporary hand, illegible old ownership inscription "Ex bibliotheca Stoles(?)". Provenance: from a French private medical library. Still a very good, wide-margined copy. ----EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE EARLIEST PRINTED TEXTBOOK ON MIDWIFERY, published by Martin Flach in Strassburg on March 6, 1513. The Hagenau edition, sometimes erroneously stated as the first edition is actually a reprint dated by Benzing ca. 1515. (see Benzing, Norman and Garrison-Morton online for correction). The Cologne edition - sometimes erroneously assigned as second Hagenau issue (which is nonexistent, see Benzing) - is dated ca. 1518. Roesslin's book is based on the manuscripts of Soranus of Ephesus who wrote in the second century AD and the c. sixth-century Moschion Codex in the Royal Library at Brussels. In all probability Roesslin got his inspiration for the illustrations of the fetus in utero from the Heidelberg Codex in the Vatican Library. Martin Flach had them cut in wood by the noted Formschneider Erhard Schön and they continued to be used by Roesslin's successors until the 18th century. The twenty woodcuts in the text present for the first time illustrations of positions of the fetus in utero, a birth chair, and twins, including Siamese twins. The figures of the fetus were derived from those found in the manuscripts by Soranus and Moschion. For almost 200 years, these woodcuts were reprinted in editions of Roesslin's work or copied in the works of later writers, including Jacques Guillemeau and Jacob Rueff. The full-page dedicatory woodcut depicts the author presenting his book to Katherine, Duchess of Brunswick and Lüneburg, who is thought to have encouraged Roesslin to produce the work and to whom he dedicated the volume. The binding and style of decoration of our copy is based on this presentation copy given to Katherine as depicted in the woodcut. Eucharius Roesslin was an apothecary of Freiburg im Breisgau in 1493. In 1506 he became physician to the city of Frankfurt am Main, and in 1508 he entered service at the court of Katherine. When he published the first edition of his Rosengarten, Roesslin had become town physician and a supervisor of midwives in Worms. In 1517, he returned to Frankfurt holding the post of town physician until his death in 1526. His son Eucharius the jounger, who published the first Latin translation of the Rosengarten in 1532, succeeded him as town physician of Frankfurt. (Norman, p.51). Thanks to the fact that two undated editions (Hagenau and Cologne) appeared around the time of the first dated Strassburg edition, the question of priority remained uncertain for long time. Benzing however has clearly shown that the two undated issues must have been of a later date. The earliest date for the first (Strassburg) edition is fixed by both, the granted imperial privilege to the author on 24. September 1512 and his dedication to the Duchess Catherine of Brunswick and Lüneburg of 20. February 1513. The woodcuts (dedication image and fetus representations) are completely identical impressions from the same originals in all the three editions. The dedication image (the author presents his book to Duchess Catherine) has the monogram "MC" (interwined) at the bottom left, according to K.W. Zülch a work of the Frankfurt-based painter Martin Kaldenbach, an assignment that appears to be correct based on its style. Rösslin - who knew Martin Kaldenbach from his first job as town physician in Frankfurt - may have mediated him with the woodcut making. The sketch then passed into the possession of Johann Knobloch of Strasbourg, who had it cut in wood and the other woodcuts manufactured by a different artist. Knobloch certainly had the first edition made by his stepson Martin Flach the Younger, to whom he had a good relationship and who had printed for him several times, however, without mentioning the publisher. Knobloch was undoubtedly a strenuous printer and publisher - the latter more as Benzing says - who not only occasionally printed for other parties, but more than this, had other printers working for him, both in Strasburg and abroad. At the time when the stock of the first (Flach's) edition was exhausted, Knobloch gave the woodcuts to Gran in Hagenau for a new edition. Benzing says that Gran did about 20 prints for Knobloch, including the Heldenbuch (book of heroes) of 1509 that appears as odd for Gran's press as Rösslins "Rosengarten" does. Further, the Heldenbuch is set in the same type (Type 13 according to Proctor) as Rösslins "Rosengarten", a type that certainly has a Strassburg character. Gran's edition of the "Rosengarten" can hardly be dated before 1515. When this edition sold out, Knobloch set up a third by Arnt von Aich in Cologne using the same woodcuts, but without mentioning publisher or printer. Based on the typography, the assignment to Arnt von Aich is without any doubt. For the same typographical presentation Benzing refers to Johannes de Sacrobosco's "Sphaera materialis" geteutscht 1519 (Weller 1270, Proctor 10577). Just the print year is questionable, as is the start of printer activity by Arnt von Aich in general. The first dated prints by Arnt von Aich are from 1519. (see Benzing 1956)A book of extraordinary rarity. Three copies only have appeared at auction in the past 50 years of which only two were complete (the Bonhams sale of the Hellmann collection, Oct 11, 1979, lot 258 sold GBP 25,000 and Hartung & Hartung, Nov. 5, 1991, lot 172 sold DM 75,000). We can trace a total of fifteen institutional copies worldwide, with eight outside Germany only including two in the United States: 1. Munich, Ludwig-Maximilians Universität; 2. Erlangen, Universitätsbibliothek; 3-4. Wolfenbüttel, Herzog August-Bibliothek (two copies, one incomplete); 5. Worms, Stadtbibliothek (incomplete); 6. Nürnberg, Germanisches Nationalmuseum; 7.

         Tabula Terre Nove.

      1513 - Strassburg, Johannes Shott, 1513 or 1520. Woodcut, printed area 385 x 445mm, paper watermarked with a fleur de lis, with good margins. The rare first issue of Wäldseemüller's famous 'Admiral's map', the first printed atlas map specifically of the Americas. It shows the eastern coasts of America and the western coast of Europe & Africa 55º North to 35º South, with a rudimentary 'Florida', Cuba, Hispaniola and Jamaica. The twenty place names in North America suggest his sources were Portuguese, particularly the Cantino chart of 1502 and Caveri of c.1505. As the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida Peninsula appear before recorded voyages to either, this map is regarded as evidence of forgotten expeditions. It was Wäldseemüller's wall map of the world map (1507) that first used the name 'America', although he was only using it for the parts of South America explored by Amerigo Vespucci. However others started using the name for the whole of the New World and here Wäldseemüller is trying to make amends: a Latin note reads 'This land and the adjacent islands were discovered by Christopher Columbus on the mandate of the King of Castile'. This is the best example of this landmark map we have ever seen. BURDEN: 3.

         De mystica numerorum significatione opusculum: eorum praesertim qui in sacris litteris usitati habentur, spiritualem ipsorum designationem succincte elucidans

      41, (3)ff. (signatures a8 Paris, Henri Estienne, 16 décembre 1513, in-4, 41, (3)ff. (signatures a8, b4, c-f8), demi-chagrin marine, dos à nerfs estampé de filets à froid (reliure fin XIXème), PREMIERE EDITION de ce traité sur l'interprétation mystique des nombres. Clicthove (1472?-1543), docteur en théologie (1506), fervent opposant de Luther, a composé un assez grand nombre d'ouvrages qui ont presque tous été imprimés par Henri Estienne. Il fut curé à Tournai, puis chanoine et théologal de Chartes. En 1512, il est nommé précepteur des deux neveux de l'évêque de Clermont, Jacques d'Amboise. L'auteur dédie son ouvrage à Germain de Ganay, évêque de Cahors et protecteur de Jacques Lefèvre d'Étaples. Or, Clicthove fut l'élève de ce théologien lorsqu'il étudia à Paris. Lefèvre d'Étaples avait abordé l'interprétation mystique des nombres dans son traité de magie naturelle, écrit entre octobre 1492 et décembre 1495, mais jamais imprimé. Il tenta d'y concilier la philosophie pythagoricienne des nombres avec la théologie chrétienne. Dans son ouvrage, Clicthove cite d'abord Pythagore et Aristote, puis la Bible et les pères de l'Eglise (saint Augustin, Jean Damascène, saint Jean Chrysostome, saint Grégoire, saint Jérôme), Cassiodore, Bède le Vénérable, etc. Il s'inscrit ainsi dans l'interprétation chrétienne, en s'appuyant abondamment sur saint Augustin. Suivant cette tradition, Dieu aurait mis en notre âme l'intelligence du nombre qui serait un reflet du nombre non-sensible, c'est-à-dire un signe divin et par là-même un chemin vers son accession.

      Artist: Ptolemy/ Laurent Fries Claudius ( - 1531 ) ; issued in: Ulm; date: 1541 1513 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Wormholes perfectly restored; size in cm : 28 x 43 - description: Map shows the river Rhein, on reverse 1/2 page shows a map of Lothringa - Vita of the artist: "Lorenz (Laurent) Fries was born in Alsace in 1490 or thereabouts, describing himself on one occasion as from Colmar, one of the towns of the region. He studied medicine at university, or rather at universities, as he seems to have had a peripatetic education, apparently spending time at the universities of Pavia, Piacenza, Montpellier and Vienna.Having successfully completed his education, Fries established himself as a physician, at a succession of places in the Alsace region, with a short spell in Switzerland, before settling in Strasbourg, in about 1519.By this time, he had established a reputation as a writer on medical topics, with several publications already to his credit. Indeed, it was thus that Fries met the Strasbourg printer and publisher Johann Grüninger, an associate of the St. Die group of scholars formed by, among others, Walter Lud, Martin Ringmann and Martin Waldseemuller. Grüninger. It would seem that Gruninger was responsible for printing several of the maps prepared by Waldseemuller, and for supervising the cutting of the maps for the 1513 edition of Ptolemy, edited by the group.This meeting was to introduce a important digression into Fries' life, and for the next five years, from about 1520 to about 1525, he worked in some capacity as a cartographic editor for or with Gruninger, exploiting the corpus of material that Waldseemuller had created. Unfortunately, there is little evidence to help gauge the nature of the relationship. Claudius Ptolemy ( arround 100- 160 a.C.) Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. 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.
