      4to (214x158 mm). (180) leaves. Collation: a-y8 z4. Z4 is a blank. On the title-page large round woodcut portrait of Rinaldo on horseback. With also numerous woodcut vignettes in the text, some on black ground. Text printed in two columns.

Provenance: Charles Farfaix Murray, Giuseppe Martini, Leo Olschki (Rome, 15 April 1927), S.F. Brunschwig (Cat. Genève, 28-30 March 1955, no. 259), and Pierre Berès. Title-page and a few leaves only slightly browned, loss of paper in the lower blank margin of l. N4 not affecting the text, otherwise a nice, well-margined copy.VERY RARE EDITION of the Italian rhymed version, attributed to Girolamo Forti, of the Saint Reinoldus legend, part of the Quatre fils Aymon.The story of Renaud de Montauban was first written in Alexandrine verse in the thirteenth century. From that many versions were then developed. In Italy the story of Rinaldo first appeared in the fourteenth century, both in prose and in verse. It was printed many times: Naples, c. 1475; Venice, 1494; Milan, 1501; Turin, 1503; Milan, 1510; Venice, M. Sessa, 1515. All these editions are of great rarity and mostly known in only one copy.The present edition is based on that of Sessa, from which also derives the woodcut on the title-page and those in text (with some additions). We were able to trace only one other copy of this edition, at Yale, missing two leaves. The Yale copy comes from the Essling and Bonfiglioli collections. The copy quoted by Melzi & Tosi (see below), bound with Pietro Durante's Leandra (Venice, Bindoni, 1517) and offered in Catalogue 19 (no. 2532, fr. 300) of the Paris bookseller Tross, has since then disappeared.The story of Rinaldo can be also found in Pulci's Morgante, in the poems by Boiardo and Ariosto, in Forteguerri's Ricciardetto, and in Tasso's Rinaldo. It narrates the deeds of the four children of Aimon of Dordogne. These were knighted by Charlemagne, but after that Rinaldo killed in a duel the grandson of Charlemagne, Bertolai, they were forced to flee in order to escape the emperor's vengeance. After various episodes of wars and reconciliations with Charlemagne, Rinaldo continued, with the help of his wondrous horse Bayard and of the magician Malagigi, his adventures in the Holy Land, dying finally in Cologne. Rinaldo was not just a knight, but also a saint, and his legend pleased the public of the squares as well as that of the courts (cf. M. Praloran, Cantari di Rinaldo, in: "Il poema in ottava. Storia linguistica italiana", Rome, 2003, pp. 33-45).OCLC, 80153062; M. Sander, Le livre à figures italien, Milan, 1942, III, no. 6496; G. Melzi & P.A.

Lettre Bâtarde in double column, ruled throughout in red, Regnault’s large woodcut elephant device on both title-pages (Silvestre 43), second title with large grotesque woodcut letter, white on black crible initials of various sizes, nine large half or three-quarter page woodcuts, a further 69 woodcut illustrations in the text with repeats (cm), Nicolas-Joseph Foucault’s armorial bookplate on pastedown, C19 armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on fly, Shirburn Castle blindstamp to head of first two ll, light age yellowing in places, very occasional thumb mark, small closed tear at gutter on t-p. A fine, well margined copy, on thick paper, crisp and clean with very fine impression of type and woodcuts, in contemporary French (probably Parisian) blind-stamped calf, covers blind ruled to a panel design, central panel in a ‘Gril de St Laurent’ design of vertical strips of repeated acanthus leaf and vase rolls in blind, outer panel with the same blind roll, spine, rebacked in the early C17, gilt in compartments with gilt raised bands, red morocco label gilt, joints and head and tail restored, covers a little rubbed and scratched, with small tears in lower cover, lacking clasps and catches, all edges gilt and gauffered. The rare and beautifully illustrated second edition of Guillame Fillastre’s most famous work, composed between 1468 and 1473, first printed by Regnault in 1516 of which this edition is an exact copy. Guillaume Fillastre the younger was the illegitimate son of a Benedictine Nun and the humanist Cardinal Guillaume Fillastre (died 1428) after whom he was named. He was raised and educated in the ecclesiastical channel but he eventually joined the service of the Dukes of Burgundy. Devoted, on the one hand to the Pope and on the other to Philip the Good Duke of Burgundy, he achieved high status with both. He became counsellor to Philip in 1440 and quickly rose to Prominence thanks to his erudition and diplomatic skill. The duke appointed him head of his counsel in 1457 and chancellor of the order of the golden fleece in 1461. Successive Popes nominated him Bishop of Toul in 1449 and of Tournai in 1460. Throughout his erudite career Fillastre had written many treatises to enhance the glory of the dukes of Burgundy and had patronised artists to that effect. The Chroniques de France Manuscript which he presented in 1457 to Philip was modified to include passages of the History of Flanders to justify the Duke’s aspirations to rule over a revived Lotharingian Empire. Fillastre wrote his history of the order of the Golden Fleece at the request of the Duke of Burgundy between 1468 and 1473. In it he set out to discuss the historical, spiritual and ceremonial significance of six fleeces from Biblical and Classical literature. He makes the connection between the mythical past, history, the bible and the contemporary, giving examples of chivalry and modes of behavior expected of members of the order. It is also a general celebration of contemporary Burgundian culture which its links to the time of Charlemagne as well as implying military connections with Ancient Rome and philosophical connections with Classical Athens. Fillastre also wrote a third volume dealing with virtue and prudence that was never published A number of manuscript copies of the text were made for the important members of the order. They regularly have the same formulaic frontispiece to Book II representing the 1473 Chapter during which Fillastre presented his Histoire to Charles the Bold who had requested the text at the 1468 meeting. The miniature shows Charles seated under a cloth of honor embroidered with his arms, members of the order wearing the Order's collar and robes flank the Duke. Fillastre in the robes of the bishop of Tournai stands in the foreground presenting his work. This scene is copied in this printed version in a very fine three quarter page woodcut that appears at the beginning of both [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The illustrations were designed for the Strasburg printer Johann Gruninger for his edition of Vergil in 1502 edited by Sebastian Brant. The woodcuts depict 15th century life: rural and pastoral, magical voyages and adventures, monsters, mermaids, battles, ships, hunting, feasts, music, many have medieval town backdrops with houses and castles. They were used in a 1515 Strasburg printing of a German translation and then passed to Saccon in Lyon. Some blocks in our edition are slightly worn and a few had split and been rejoined, most are undamaged. This is the first Lyons edition of Virgil edited by Josse Badius (1462-1535) humanist scholar, his commentary first published in Paris in 1500-1501.

Starting with the first version published by Daniel Bomberg in 1517, these Rabbinic Bibles represent the earliest printings of the full text of the Hebrew Bible according the Rabbinic tradition with marginal commentaries by scholars in Aramaic and Hebrew and chapter and verse numbers printed on the pages. With Bomburg's second version (1524) the full authoritative Masoretic text with revisions and corrections, by Jacob ben Hayyim ibn Adonijah, standardized the form and layout on which all subsewquent editions of Rabbinic Bibles (Mikrot Gedolot) are based. In this version, commentaries include, for the Pentatuch, Rashi and Ibn Ezra, and for the Nevi'im (Prophets) and Ketuvim (Writings) sections, Rashi and Radak (in Rashi Script). The text of this sixth version of the Biblia Rabbinica, follows the content of the third version, restoring the material that was expurgated by the Inquisition from the fifth version. Bound in at the back (front from Latin orientation) of the second volume, supplementing the text, is the improved and enlarged edition of Johannes Buxtorf's treatise on diacriticals in the biblical text, "Tiberias, sive Commentarius Masoreticus" (originally published in 1620). This edition was edited by Buxtorf's son, Johannes Buxtorf the Younger. While various permutations of the edition exist, this is one of the copies of the book that was issued only in Hebrew, with no Latin titles or preface. The first volume starts with the author's notes, a preface and a table of contents. Each book starts with divisional titles featuring the first words of the books in Hebrew, in beautifully printed large type-fonts bordered with lovely woodcut floral motifs and further encircled by multiple layers of textual commentary in Hebrew, reading counterclockwise. In vol.2 following the text of the Ketuvim (Writings) section, is the Targum Yerushalmi ("Jerusalem Targum") also known as the Targum Pseudo-Jonathan, followed by sections of additional Masoretic commentaries, scholarly Rabbinic notes and indexes in Hebrew. Illustrated and historiated endpieces at the end of each minor book division. The work contains four Hebrew title pages, including the general title and 3 divisional titles. Text in Hebrew. Text of the Tiberias in Latin with some Hebrew. Bindings with some scratches to the covers and spines. Some rubbing to extremities and along edges. Interior with some age toning, damp staining and light foxing throughout. Book blocks tight. Bindings and interiors in good to good+ condition overall. *Johannes Buxtorf (1564 - 1629) was a celebrated and highly influential Christian Hebraist and biblical scholar who served as professor of Hebrew for thirty nine years at the University of Basel. His works include explorations of Judaism, Jewish customs, Hebrew language, the bible, and Rabbinic literature. His son Johannes Buxtorf the Younger, was also an acclaimed Hebraicist. *Darlow & Mule #5120.

         P. Cornelius Taciti libri quinque noviter inventi atque cdum reliquis eius operibus editi [ by Filippos Beroaldo, with Annotationes by Andrea Alciati]

      Alessandro Minuziano, Milan 1517 - Tacitus, Publius Cornelius (ca. 56 – ca. 120 C.E.). P. Cornelii Taciti libri quinque noviter in venti atque cum reliquis eius operibus editi. Small 4to. [20], 233, [3]ff. Signatures H-K bound in reverse order in this copy. [Milan:] Ex officina Minutiana, 1517. 192 x 127 mm. Full morocco tooled in gilt and blind in antique style. Occasional faint dampstaining, but a fine copy. Engraved armorial bookplate of Count D[mitri] Petrovich Boutourlin (1790-1849). First Minuziano Edition, and the First Example of a Challenge to a Copyright. In 1508 Pope Leo X (formerly Cardinal Giovanni de’Medici) purchased the only surviving manuscript of the "lost" first six books of Tacitus’s Annals, which had earlier been stolen from the monastery of Corvey in Westphalia. Six year later Leo granted the Vatican librarian, humanist Filippo Beroaldo the younger, the exclusive right or privilegio to issue a printed edition the complete works of Tacitus, including the previously unpublished "lost" books from the Corvey manuscript. Violators of the privilegio were threatened with excommunication. Beroaldo’s Tacitus, printed in Rome by Stephanus Guilleretus de Lotheringia, was published in 1515. At the same time the Milanese printer Alessandro Minuziano, undaunted by the fear of papal displeasure, began preparing a word-for-word reprint of the Beroaldo Tacitus, probably bribing one of Lotheringia’s employees for sheets of the work as it was being printed. It is likely that Minuziano intended to issue his pirated edition around the same time as the legitimate one, but the Pope got word of his scheme and the subsequent dispute over the privilegio forced Minuziano to suspend publication until the matter was resolved. The matter was serious, especially as Leo X actively involved himself in issues of publication and censorship. The case was eventually resolved in Minuziano’s favor, and he added an appendix to the edition containing the key documents pertaining to the case. These included the papal privilege of November 14, 1514, Minuziano’s "supplication and prayers" to Leo X of March 30, 1516 (in which he defended himself, remarkably, by claiming ignorance of the Pope’sprivilegio), and the papal letter of pardon dated September 7, 1516, reiterating Minuziano’s defense and granting Minuziano permission to publish his edition. This copy of the Minuziano Tacitus bears the bookplate of Dmitri Petrovich Boutourlin (or Buturlin), a Russian general, statesman and military historian who became director of the Russian Imperial Public Library in 1843. A catalogue of Boutourlin’s extensive private library was published in 1831. $12,500 rebound by Sean Richards. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         La battaglia degli uomini nudi

      1517 - Bulino 1517, firmato e datato in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nell’unico stato conosciuto. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame e completa della linea marginale, lieve restauro nella parte inferiore centrale, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazioni. Al verso disegno a matita sanguigna calco dello stesso soggetto. Nei palazzi rinascimentali era uso decorare le sale più importanti con scene di battaglia e di torneo, che richiedevano tutta la maestria degli artisti, nel realizzare composizioni con uomini e cavalli in movimento. I più famosi esempi del primo cinquecento sono la Battaglia di Cascina di Michelangelo e la Battaglia di Anghiari di Leonardo, entrambe disegnate per un affresco, mai poi realizzato, per la Sala dei Cinquecento di Palazzo della Signoria a Firenze. I cartoni ed i disegni preparatori dei due artisti esercitarono una grandissima influenza su tutta l’arte del Rinascimento. Nel 1513 a Tiziano fu offerto di dipingere una scena di battaglia per il Palazzo Ducale di Venezia; lavoro che l’artista iniziò nel 1537 per terminare l’anno successivo, e che fu distrutto nell’incendio del 1577. Sebbene non sia comprovabile, questa incisione del Campagnola riflette una delle prime idee del maestro per la scena di battaglia. Sicuramente è netta l’influenza del Tiziano su questa composizione; affinità stilistiche sono riscontrabili con alcune scene della celebre silografia Il passaggio del Mar Rosso, che Tiziano realizzò nel 1514. Opera molto rara. Engraving, 1517, signed and dated on plate at lower left. Example in the only state known. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to the platemark and with complete borderline, tiny restoration on the lower central part, in good conditions. On verso, a sanguigna drawing, copy of the same subject. In the Renaissance, it was widespread the habit to decorate the most important rooms of the main palaces with scenes of battles and tournaments, quite a demanding task for any artist, for they had to portray men and horses in motion. At the beginning of the XVI century, the most famous battle pieces were the Battle of Cascina by Michelangelo and the Battle of Anghiari by Leonardo, both prepared for a fresco (neither ever realized) in the Sala dei Cinquecento, of the Palazzo della Signoria in Florence. The cartoons and the preparatory drawings of both artists have influenced the whole artistic production of the Renaissance. In 1513 Titian was offered to paint a battle scene for the Palazzo Ducale in Venice; the artist began his work in 1537 and finished the following year; the painting was unfortunately destroyed in the fire of 1577. Although it can’t be proved, this engraving of Campagnola represents one of the first ideas for the battle scene. For sure, the influence of Titian is evident in this composition; we can also find stylistic similarities with the famous woodcut Drowning of Pharaoh’s Army in the Red Sea, which Titian executed around 1514.

         Triumphus crucis, de fidei veritate. {i.e. "Triumph of the Cross"].

      Venice, Luca Olchiense, 1517 8vo. In contemporary full vellum. Title-page with woodcut vignette, rapaired at bottom, not affecting text or vignette. Three small holes to title-page and round stamp to lower part of title-page and last leaf, not affecting text or vignette. Small repair to lower part of M1, not affecting text. 112 ff. Rare second latin edition of Savonarola's perhaps most famous and influential work, his spiritual masterpiece, essentially a celebration of the victory of the Cross over sin and death and an exploration of what it means to be a Christian. On 12 May 1497, Pope Alexander VI excommunicated Savonarola and threatened the Florentines with an interdict if they persisted in harbouring him. On 18 March 1498, after much debate and steady pressure from the government, he withdrew from public preaching. Under the stress of excommunication, Savonarola composed the present work. "In his religious treatise, The Triumph of the Cross, Savonarola draws on classical triumphal imagery and the tradition of Florentine pageantry, as he allegorically depicts the triumph of Christianity in the form of a triumphal procession. Since it is difficult for the human mind to imagine the supernatural and invisible works of Christ, the friar argues, they need to be presented and visualized in metaphorical form. The image of the triumphal chariot serves this purpose well." (Uppsala Universitet, Renässansen - mellan medeltid och modernitet).Luca Olchiense was active as printer for a very short period of time (1517-18), and the present work is one of the few he managed to complete.

Restauration en marge interne au feuillet 33 (bande de papier ancien). Bon exemplaire. Œuvre principale de l'auteur, qu'on peut traduire par « les fruits du savoir » ou « les fruits d'une éducation libérale », sorte de réflexion sur la connaissance et l'éducation morale ; c'est un livre proche par l'esprit de L'Utopie (qui venait de paraître un an plus tôt) de Thomas More, dont Richard Pace pratique la louange, le qualifiant de génie (p. 82 De Moro). C'est par la lecture du livre de Pace (1482-1536) que Luther prendra connaissance du livre de More et désirera grandement le lire. De fructu témoigne en détail des fruits d'une éducation humaniste et libérale sous les Tudors, l'auteur contant, dans une sorte de conversation assez libre, la lecture des Anciens, la connaissance et le savoir liés à la morale, l'ensemble dans un souci pédagogique. L'ouvrage demeure un témoignage précieux et remarquable de l'éducation humaniste. Richard Pace commença son éducation à Winchester, puis à Oxford, il fit ensuite des études à Padoue, Ferrare et Bologne. Après une vie de diplomate, il fut nommé secrétaire du roi à son retour en Angleterre, jouissant de nombreuses charges ecclésiastiques, notamment à Saint-Paul. Pace était proche des plus grands humanistes de son temps et du roi Henri VIII, Thomas More, bien sûr, et Erasme dont plusieurs lettres font l'éloge. L'œuvre a été réimprimée pour la Renaissance Society of America en 1966 (éditée et traduite par Franck Manley and Richard S. Sylvester). Édition précieuse et rare.

        Histoire du cardinal Ximenès

      Edition originale, rare, orné d'un portrait au frontispice de Delinck et illustrée de 6 bandeaux de titre et de 6 cul delampe par Sébastien Le Clerc. Marque de l'imprimeur en page de titre, à la fleur de lys de Florence.Pleine Basane brune d'époque. spine à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. spine-ends et mors en tête et queue restaurés. Coins dénudés.L'oeuvre parut quelques jours à peine après l'Histoire de Ximenez de Marsolier et dont la comparaison suscita une polémique jusqu'au XIXe siècle. Alors que l'ouvrage de Fléchier tend à illustrer la sainteté du Cardinal, celui de Marsolier, plus critique, s'adresse "aux libertins, à ce parti des philosophes qui commençait à lever la tête". Réformateur religieux et homme politique, Ximénès (Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros) fut nommé Grand Inquisiteur d'Espagne et gouverneur de Castille ; il montra beaucoup de tempérence dans son administration de l'inquisition et sa politique envers les mores. A l'origine moine franciscain, n'oubliant pas ses origines, il tendit à une réforme profonde du clergé vers plus de morale. Il s'éteint en 1517, après s'être illustré sur tous les fronts, enseignement, politique... Il est une des figures majeures de l'histoire de l'Espagne de cette fin du XVe siècle. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
