        De duplici copia, verborum ac rerum commentarii duo, plerisque in locis aucti. Epistola . as Iacobum Vuimphelingium Selestatinum

      Johann Knoblouch, Strassburg 1522 - 8vo, pp. [8], 112, [16] (the last leaf blank), with a fine historiated woodcut title-page border, recased, in contemporary blindstamped pigskin neatly rebacked, clasps not preserved, new cloth folding box. A very rare edition of Erasmus' wide-spread treatise "The Double Supply of Words and Matter", designed to assist the young student in attaining an elegant and fluent style of writing, and to provide abundant examples of how to say the same thing in different ways. This work, completed at the request of Erasmus' friend, John Colet, head of St. Paul's School in London, became enormously popular and was reprinted many times since its first appearance in 1512. "This work is more important than its elementary nature might indicate, for it provided a handbook not only for the intimation of the words of the ancients but for the absorption of their ideas as well" (J.E. Walsh). The present edition contains, besides the original dedication to John Colet and the preface addressed to the printer Matthias Schurer for the 1514 edition, the famous epistle to Jacob Wimpheling (1450-1528) in which Erasmus relates his previous journey to Basel and, mentioning all the humanists he had met there, extends thanks for the friendly welcome he had received in Strassburg. OCLC locates 6 copies worldwide: Freiburg, Strassburg, Zurich, Rotterdam, and only Yale in the US. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lectura super quatuor libros Institutionum multorum doctorum et nuperrime domini Joannis de Gradibus

      Jacques Sacon), 1522. Cm 40,5, cc. 157 (15). Frontespizio in rosso e nero. Testo in carattere semi-gotico, bei capilettera xilogafici. Affascinante legatura coeva in piena pergamena ricavata da antico codice tardo-medievale con dorso a 4 nervi. Minime mende alla legatura, traccia di due antiche etichette di possesso al frontespizio (che presenta una brunitura marginale, un rinforzo e mancanze nella parte alta), aloni sparsi perlopiù e marginali (più evidenti nelle carte iniziali e finali), sporadiche macchiette, segni di tarlo limitati al margine bianco di alcune carte. Esemplare più che discreto alla luce dell'alta epoca. Jean Faure (1275ca.-1340), detto Joannes Roncinus, fu giureconsulto francese di considerevole fama ed autorità. Dedicatosi ben presto all'opera d'attualizzazione del diritto romano, produsse un celebre commento alle Istituzioni giustinianee e questo Breviarium ai 9 libri del Codex (tralatiziamente attribuitogli). Tiraqueau, du Moulin e Boerius lo definirono rispettivamente "vir apud nos maxime autoritatis", "subtilissimus et consumatissimus juris doctor" e "summum Franciae Consuetudinarium" (cfr. Taisand, Les vies des plus celebres jurisconsultes, ed. 1737, pp. 181-82); in definitiva Faber va inserito a pieno titolo fra gli eredi della grande tradizione degli Ultramontani. Oltre che creatore di dottrina fu, così riportano le antiche biografie, impegnato come giudice e, notizia su cui peraltro sussistono dubbi, come cancelliere di Francia. L'opera appare fondata sulle dottrine di Azzone, Dino del Mugello, Guido da Baisio, Innocenzo IV, Enrico da Susa (ed ovviamente Jacobus de Ravanis) e va cronologicamente inserita nel contesto storico-culturale immediatamente pre-bartoliano. Rarissima edizione lionese, non censita in Iccu e nei principali repertori di biblioteche internazionali. Cfr. Pettegree-Walsby, French books..

        Kit b tahr r 'u l al-handasa li-' ql dus, an exposition of Euclid's 'Elements of Geometry,' signed by 'Izz al-Din Ahmad.

      Persia, Safavid: dated 929 AH/1522-23 AD. A fine early sixteenth-century manuscript of al-T s 's recension of Euclid's Elements. This, together with his commentary on Ptolemy's Almagest, is al-T s 's most important work. The first printed edition of Euclid (Venice, 1482) was a Latin translation by Campanus of Novara (1220-96) based upon al-T s 's version. Probably written in 1248, the earliest extant manuscript of al-T s 's version of Euclid is dated 1258 (held by the British Library - see Stocks & Baker, p. 374); the first printed edition did not appear for a further seven decades after the present manuscript (Rome, 1594). Na r al-D n Ab Ja'far Mu ammad ibn Mu ammad ibn al- asan al-T s (1201-74 AD) was one of the greatest Islamic scholars in the fields of mathematics, astronomy, geometry and theology. "Al-T s 's influence, especially in eastern Islam, was immense. Probably, if we take all fields into account, he was more responsible for the revival of the Islamic sciences than any other individual. His bringing together so many competent scholars and scientists at Mar gha resulted not only in the revival of mathematics and astronomy but also in the renewal of Islamic philosophy and even theology. Al-T s 's works were for centuries authoritative in many fields of Islamic learning; ... and his mathematical studies affected all later Islamic mathematics ... In the West al-T s is known almost entirely as an astronomer and mathematician whose significance, at least in these fields, is becoming increasingly evident" (DSB). T s 's recension exists in two versions: one in 13 books of which only two manuscripts survive (both in the Laurenziana) - this is the version printed at the Medici Press in 1594; and another in 15 books (as here) which was first printed at Constantinople in 1801 (see Heath, pp. 77-8). "Born ca. 300 BC in Alexandria, Egypt, "Euclid compiled his Elements from a number of works of earlier men. Among these are Hippocrates of Chios (flourished ca. 440 BC), not to be confused with the physician Hippocrates of Cos (ca. 460-375 BC). The latest compiler before Euclid was Theudius, whose textbook was used in the Academy and was probably the one used by Aristotle (384-322 BC). The older elements were at once superseded by Euclid's and then forgotten. For his subject matter Euclid doubtless drew upon all his predecessors, but it is clear that the whole design of his work was his own ... "In ancient times, commentaries were written by Heron of Alexandria (flourished 62 AD), Pappus of Alexandria (flourished ca. 320 AD), Proclus, and Simplicius of Cilicia (flourished c. 530 AD). The father of Hypatia, Theon of Alexandria (ca. 335-405 AD), edited the Elements with textual changes and some additions; his version quickly drove other editions out of existence, and it remained the Greek source for all subsequent Arabic and Latin translations until 1808, when an earlier edition was discovered in the Vatican. "The immense impact of the Elements on Islamic mathematics is visible through the many translations into Arabic from the 9th century forward, three of which must be mentioned: two by al- ajj j ibn Y suf ibn Ma ar, first for the Abb sid caliphr n al-Rash d (ruled 786-809) and again for the caliph al-Ma m n (ruled 813-833); and a third by Is q ibn unayn (died 910), son of unayn ibn Is q (808-873), which was revised by Th bit ibn Qurrah (ca. 836-901) and again by Na r al-D n al- s . Euclid first became known in Europe through Latin translations of these versions. "The first extant Latin translation of the Elements was made about 1120 by Adelard of Bath, who obtained a copy of an Arabic version in Spain, where he traveled while disguised as a Muslim student. Adelard also composed an abridged version and an edition with commentary, thus starting a Euclidean tradition of the greatest importance until the Renaissance unearthed Greek manuscripts. Incontestably the best Latin translation from Arabic was made by Gerard of Cremona (ca. 1114-87) from the Is q-Th bit versions ... "Euclid understood that building a logical and rigorous geometry depends on the foundation--a foundation that Euclid began in Book I with 23 definitions (such as "a point is that which has no part" and "a line is a length without breadth"), five unproved assumptions that Euclid called postulates (now known as axioms), and five further unproved assumptions that he called common notions. Book I then proves elementary theorems about triangles and parallelograms and ends with the Pythagorean theorem … "The subject of Book II has been called geometric algebra because it states algebraic identities as theorems about equivalent geometric figures. Book II contains a construction of "the section," the division of a line into two parts such that the ratio of the larger to the smaller segment is equal to the ratio of the original line to the larger segment. (This division was renamed the golden section in the Renaissance after artists and architects rediscovered its pleasing proportions.) Book II also generalizes the Pythagorean theorem to arbitrary triangles, a result that is equivalent to the law of cosines. Book III deals with properties of circles and Book IV with the construction of regular polygons, in particular the pentagon. "Book V shifts from plane geometry to expound a general theory of ratios and proportions that is attributed by Proclus (along with Book XII) to Eudoxus of Cnidus (ca. 395/390-342/337 BC). While Book V can be read independently of the rest of the Elements, its solution to the problem of incommensurables (irrational numbers) is essential to later books. In addition, it formed the foundation for a geometric theory of numbers until an analytic theory developed in the late 19th century. Book VI applies this theory of ratios to plane geometry, mainly triangles and parallelograms, culminating in the "application of areas," a procedure for solving quadratic problems by geometric means. "Books VII-IX contain elements of number theory, where number (arithmos) means positive integers greater than 1. Beginning with 22 new definitions--such as unity, even, odd, and prime--these books develop various properties of the positive integers. For instance, Book VII describes a method, antanaresis (now known as the Euclidean algorithm), for finding the greatest common divisor of two or more numbers; Book VIII examines numbers in continued proportions, now known as geometric sequences (such as ax, ax2, ax3, ax4, ...); and Book IX proves that there are an infinite number of primes. “According to Proclus, Books X and XIII incorporate the work of the Pythagorean Thaetetus (ca. 417-369 BC). Book X, which comprises roughly one-fourth of the Elements, seems disproportionate to the importance of its classification of incommensurable lines and areas (although study of this book would inspire Johannes Kepler [1571-1630] in his search for a cosmological model). "Books XI-XIII examine three-dimensional figures, in Greek stereometria. Book XI concerns the intersections of planes, lines, and parallelepipeds (solids with parallel parallelograms as opposite faces). Book XII applies Eudoxus's method of exhaustion to prove that the areas of circles are to one another as the squares of their diameters and that the volumes of spheres are to one another as the cubes of their diameters. Book XIII culminates with the construction of the five regular Platonic solids (pyramid, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron) in a given sphere" (Britannica). "T s wrote over 150 works, in Arabic and Persian, that dealt with the ancient mathematical sciences, the Greek philosophical tradition, and the religious sciences (law [fiqh], dialectical theology [kal m], and Sufism). He thereby acquired the honorific titles of khw ja (distinguished scholar and teacher), ust dh al-bashar (teacher of mankind), and al-mu'allim al-th lith (the third teacher, the first two being Aristotle and Farabi). In addition, T s was the director of the first major astronomical observatory, which was located in Mar gha (Iran). "T s was born into a family of Im mi (Twelver) Shi'a. His education began first at home; both T s 's father and his uncles were scholars who encouraged him to pursue al-'ul m al-shar'iyya (the Islamic religious sciences) as well as the 'ul m al-aw 'il (the rational sciences of the ancients). He studied the branches of philosophy (hikma) and especially mathematics in T s [north-east Iran], but eventually traveled to N sh p r (after 1213) in order to continue his education in the ancient sciences, medicine, and philosophy with several noted scholars; among the things he studied were the works of Ibn S n , who became an important formative influence. T s then traveled to Iraq where his studies included legal theory; in Mosul (sometime between 1223 and 1232), one of his teachers was Kam l al-D n ibn Y nus (d. 1242), a legal scholar who was also renowned for his expertise in astronomy and mathematics. "In the early 1230s, after completing his education, T s found patrons at the Ism ' l courts in eastern Iran; he eventually relocated to Alam t, the Ism ' l capital, and witnessed its fall to the Mongols in 1256. T s then served under the Mongols as an advisor to lkh nid ruler H l g Khan, becoming court astrologer as well as minister of religious endowments (awq f). One major outcome was that T s oversaw the construction of an astronomical observatory and its instruments in Mar gha, the Mongol headquarters in Azerbaijan, and he became its first director. The Mar gha Observatory also comprised a library and school. It was one of the most ambitious scientific institutions established up to that time and may be considered the first full-scale observatory. It attracted many famous and talented scientists and students from the Islamic world and even from as far away as China. The observatory lasted only about 50 years, but its intellectual legacy would have repercussions from China to Europe for centuries to come. Indeed, it is said that Ulugh Beg's childhood memory of visiting the remnants of the Mar gha Observatory as a youth contributed to his decision to build the Samarqand Observatory. Mughal observatories in India, such as those built by Jai Singh in the 18th century, clearly show the influence of these earlier observatories, and it has been suggested that Tycho Brahe might have been influenced by them as well. In 1274 T s left Mar gha with a group of his students for Baghdad. "T s 's writings are both synthetic and original. His recensions (tah r r) of Greek and early Islamic scientific works, which included his original commentaries, became the standard in a variety of disciplines. These works included Euclid's Elements, Ptolemy's Almagest, and the so called mutawassi t (the 'Intermediate Books' that were to be studied between Euclid's Elements and Ptolemy's Almagest) with treatises by Euclid, Theodosius, Hypsicles, Autolycus, Aristarchus, Archimedes, Menelaus, Th bit ibn Qurra, and the Ban M s . In mathematics, T s published a sophisticated 'proof' of Euclid's parallels postulate that was important for the development of non-Euclidean geometry, and he treated trigonometry as a discipline independent of astronomy, which was in many ways similar to what was accomplished later in Europe by Johann Muller (Regiomontanus). Other important and influential works include books on logic, ethics, and a famous commentary on a philosophical work of Ibn S n " (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers, pp. 1153-4). T. L.

        Unterschidt zwischen weltlicher und Christlicher Fromkeyt.

      - Hagenau, (Th. Anshelm, 1522). 4to. 4 Bl. Moderner Pappband. Eine (erste?) von drei Ausgaben desselben Jahres. - Frühe Schrift des damals 25jährigen Melanchthons, die ein Schlaglicht wirft auf seine zu diesem Zeitpunkt noch keineswegs abgeschlossene Auseinandersetzung zwischen christlichem Humanismus einerseits und spezifisch Lutherischem Gedankengut andererseits. Interessant ist dabei die Bewertung der weltlichen Tugend. Sie erscheint zuerst als das der Vernunft von Gott eingepflanzte, dem Menschen innewohnende Sittengesetz. Dann aber - nach Betrachtung der christlichen Tugend als einer "inneren" Bekehrung im Sinne des Lutherischen "sola gratia" - erscheint sie plötzlich nur noch als bloße äußerliche Tugend, die von der Obrigkeit ("dem Schwert") bzw. den Eltern als deren Vertreter gegenüber den Kindern erzwungen wird. - VD 16, M 4351; Hartfelder 581, 50 (datiert auf 1521); Benzing, Hagenau 64. - Leicht gebräunt u. im Kopfsteg mit Wasserrand. Teils angeschnittene Marginalien von alter Hand. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Bewerter Historien der lieben Heiligen Gottes. Von jrem Christlichem, Gottseligem leben, warhaffter bekantnüß, herrlichen thaten, bestendigem leiden. - [2 Bände in Meistereinbänden der Zeit].

      Zweiter und dritter Teil der sechsbändigen kalendarischen Heiligengeschichte. Beide Bände enthalten den jeweils ersten Teilband (vorliegend hier die Monate März und Mai - VD16 10266 und 10268). Die Widmungskupfer beider Bände fehlen. Sonst vollständig. Beide Bände mit schöner Holzschnitt-Druckermarke Bergs (Gotteserscheinung vor musizierender Gruppe, darum die Legende: "Lobet denherren in seinnen Heilligen. Lobet in nach der Menge seiner Herligkait". Der Widmungstitel mit meisterhaft geschnittener Bildinitiale in kräftigem Abzug (ein Ritter mit Lanze stellt einen knieenden Fürsten). Der dritte Teil mit gestochenem Porträt Albrecht V. (ebenfalls in sehr kräftigem, sehr detailreichem Abzug). --- Laurentius Surius, 1522 in Lübeck geboren, studierte in Frankfurt an der Oder und in Köln. Er schloß sich 1541 den Kölner Karthäusern an, verfasste meist kirchenhistorische Schriften und genoß von 1570 an die Protektion von Papst Pius V. Er starb 1578 in Köln. ADB 37, 166. --- Die Einbände stammen von Meisterhand. Aufbau und Werkzeugformen lassen an den Stil von Jakob Krause denken: Die Deckel mit unterschiedlich breiten Rahmen aus bildhaften und ornamentalen Rollen und zwei (hier blinden) Querriegeln bilden ein harmonisches Ganzes (vgl. etwa den Einband Krauses für Kurfürst August aus dem Jahr 1580 v. Arnim 1992, 63f). - Die beiden vorliegenden Einbände gleichen sich weitgehend im kompositorischen Aufbau der blindgeprägten Deckelornamentik, unterscheiden sich aber in den verwendeten Rollen (das gilt auch für Kranzrollen und Arabesken). Identisch sind allerdings die Schließen. Die Rollen sind, soweit ersichtlich, nicht monogrammiert. --- Der sehr attraktive und wohlerhaltene Einband des 3. Teils (von außen nach Innen) mit Rahmen aus Blindlinien, Arabeskenrolle, Kranzrolle, allegorischer Tugendrolle (mit Justitia, Odorantia, Sapientia und Lucretia), Salvator-Rolle (Christus Salvator, David, Paulus, Johannes der Täufer). Zwischen den Rollen Blindlinien. Oberhalb und unterhalb der Salvator-Rolle je ein Querriegel. Im zentralen Feld ein Kranzrollenstreifen, gesäumt von zwei Arabeskenrollenstreifen. Die Tugendrolle ähnelt stark EBDB r004793 (zugeschrieben der Werkstatt des süddeutschen Meisters H.R. - Haebler I, 373, 4c). --- Der Einband des zweiten Teils (von außen nach Innen) mit Blindlinien, Arabeskenrolle, Kranzrolle, Salvatorrolle, Reformatorenrolle. Zwischen den Rollen Blindlinien. Oberhalb und unterhalb der Reformatorenrolle zwei Querriegel. Im zentralen Feld zwei Kranzrollenstreifen in geometrischem Blindlinienmuster. Die Komposition ähnelt dem bei Schunke abgebildeten Einband des Meisters F.D. (Schunke, Palatina, I, Tafel LIII. - Die via EBDB verglichenen Rollen der Werkstatt teils motivgleich, jedoch nicht identisch). --- Provenienz: Die Bände stammen aus der Bibliothek des 1806 säkularisierten Klosters Weingarten (die Rücken mit dezenten Spuren alter Signaturen die Titelblätter mit Vermerken von alter Hand "Monasterey Weingartensis Ao. 1628"). Die Vorsätze mit freiherrlichem Besitzvermerk, datiert 1885 (Bleistift, Namenszug unleserlich). --- Etwas berieben und bestoßen, erste und letzte Seiten gering fleckig durchgehend dezent wasserrandig. Band 2: Der Einband mit alten Brandspuren (der Rücken und Teile der Deckel mit Schwärzung und hitzebedingten feinen Rissen und Runzeln des Leders und mit Fehlstellen, der Rücken mit massiven Fehlstellen). Das Leder der Schließen mit deutlichen Rissen. Sonst und insgesamt ordentliche Exemplare. Der Einband des dritten Teils von großer Schönheit. 2 Bände, [25] (von 26) Bll., CCLXXIIII Bll. [25] Bll. (von 26), XXXIII Bll., reich blindgeprägte Schweinslederbände der Zeit auf sechs Doppelbünden, die Deckel auf schweren Holzdeckeln, mit je zwei Messingschließen der Zeit (die Stiftlager in Lanzenform, die Haken T-förmig mit gravierten pyramidenförmigen Linienbündeln und Rhomben), farbiger Blattschnitt, 36,5 x 25,5 cm.

Riva di San Nazarro, a Lombard noble, was a learned jurist and humanist scholar. His many works, all commentaries on aspects of Roman and canon law, went through several editions and were often excerpted and anthologized. As suggested by its title De Peste is a treatise on Roman and canon law concerning issues relating to plagues. The first legal work written about plague and one of the very first books on public health law, it reflects the near-annual occurrence of plague in early-modern Europe. All editions are scarce. OCLC locates 4 copies of the first edition, all of the Avignon issue, in North American law libraries (George Washington University, Harvard, Library of Congress, UC-Berkeley).

        Lectura super quatuor libros Institutionum multorum doctorum et nuperrime domini Joannis de Gradibus.S.n. (Lyon, Jacques Sacon), 1522.

      S.n. (Lyon, Jacques Sacon) 1522 - Cm 40,5, cc. 157 (15). Frontespizio in rosso e nero. Testo in carattere semi-gotico, bei capilettera xilogafici. Affascinante legatura coeva in piena pergamena ricavata da antico codice tardo-medievale con dorso a 4 nervi. Minime mende alla legatura, traccia di due antiche etichette di possesso al frontespizio (che presenta una brunitura marginale, un rinforzo e mancanze nella parte alta), aloni sparsi perlopiù e marginali (più evidenti nelle carte iniziali e finali), sporadiche macchiette, segni di tarlo limitati al margine bianco di alcune carte. Esemplare più che discreto alla luce dell'alta epoca. Jean Faure (1275ca.-1340), detto Joannes Roncinus, fu giureconsulto francese di considerevole fama ed autorità. Dedicatosi ben presto all'opera d'attualizzazione del diritto romano, produsse un celebre commento alle Istituzioni giustinianee e questo Breviarium ai 9 libri del Codex (tralatiziamente attribuitogli). Tiraqueau, du Moulin e Boerius lo definirono rispettivamente "vir apud nos maxime autoritatis", "subtilissimus et consumatissimus juris doctor" e "summum Franciae Consuetudinarium" (cfr. Taisand, Les vies des plus celebres jurisconsultes, ed. 1737, pp. 181-82); in definitiva Faber va inserito a pieno titolo fra gli eredi della grande tradizione degli Ultramontani. Oltre che creatore di dottrina fu, così riportano le antiche biografie, impegnato come giudice e, notizia su cui peraltro sussistono dubbi, come cancelliere di Francia. L'opera appare fondata sulle dottrine di Azzone, Dino del Mugello, Guido da Baisio, Innocenzo IV, Enrico da Susa (ed ovviamente Jacobus de Ravanis) e va cronologicamente inserita nel contesto storico-culturale immediatamente pre-bartoliano. Rarissima edizione lionese, non censita in Iccu e nei principali repertori di biblioteche internazionali. Cfr. Pettegree-Walsby, French books. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(Some wormholes in the binding, a single wormhole within the text throughout the text block and some very small ones in the bottom corner of the final pages. Without the final blank page, occasionally some waterstains, the corners of a few pages have been restored.

Rare small edition of the Latin translation of the Greek New Testament by Desiderius Erasmus, 1466/69-1536. The translation by Erasmus was the first ever printed non-Vulgate version of the Bible in Latin and became very popular going through numerous editions. However, this edition is the only one that was printed in such a small format. Besides the Bible text it contains a dedication, a preface and the 'Argumentum by Erasmus. The work is illustrated with 3 woodcut decorative panels and a woodcut on the title page, depicting the descent of the Holy Spirit on Mary and the disciples, 8 woodcuts within the text, each placed at the beginning of a Bible book and depicting the accompanying author, and 3 woodcut tail-pieces. Several capital letters are handcoloured with red paint. Each of the woodcuts is handcoloured and in case of the woodcuts within the text also heightened with gold. The work is bound in an attractive blind-stamped pigskin binding, which closes with 2 clasps on straps. Both the front and back cover and the clasps are decorated with a matching floral design.

Numerous later editions were printed of both school books; 1 however the texts printed here are the basis of mod­ern critical editions. [img-2327-left-large_default] Title-page compartment (183 × 123 mm) designed by Hans Holbein the Younger In the dedicatory letter of the treatise on letter-writing (dated 25 May 1522), Erasmus com­plains that he had been forced to take the work up again, at the insistence of friends, because of the publication of an unfinished draft in England (at Cambridge, printed by John Siberch, October 1521). For the authorised edition, Erasmus rewrote many letters, substi­tuting fictitious for real names, suppressing personal remarks, frivolous subject-matter, and open references to contemporary events; he also composed new letters, including an 'Epistola con­solatoria' (pp.250-266) and a letter of advice (pp.312-315). The text of De conscribendis episto­lis remained afterwards fundamentally un­changed through numerous reprintings. 2 [img-2328-left-large_default] Border ornaments by Jacob Faber and Hans Franck The Parabolae, a by-product of Erasmus' revision of his Adagiorum chiliades, was first printed at Strasbourg by Matthias Schürer in 1514. Ten reprints followed in swift succes­sion, only one (Louvain: Thierry Martens, June 1515) incorporat­ing authorial corrections. In 1522, once again in Basel, Erasmus methodically revised the text for Froben, appending sixteen more similia, described in the colophon of our book as 'no mean addition' (auctar­ium non mediocre). Yet when Froben next printed the Parabolae, in 1534, one of his earlier (probably 1519 or 1521) editions was chosen as copy-text; that version reappeared in the Froben Opera omnia 1540, the source of Leclerc's Leiden text of 1703. Thus Erasmus's corrections and addi­tions of August 1522 became ignored, until restored to the canon by Jean-Claude Margolin in 1975. 3 The title-page compartment (183 × 123 mm) was designed by Hans Holbein the Younger and first used in Glareanus' Isagoge in musicen printed by Froben in May-June 1516. 4 The first page of text (folio a3 recto) has metalcut side-borders by Jacob Faber after Hans Holbein, 'Two Satyrs trumpeting' (134 × 116 mm) and 'Nude men attacking satyrs' (134 × 270 mm), used in conjunction with the famous 'Venus and Cupid' border by Hans Franck. 5 On the sub-title (folio Ee1 recto) is Urs Graf's signed bor­der 'Fool and a Satyr on columns' (168 × 106 mm), first used in Erasmus's Moriae Encomium printed by Froben in March 1515. 6 The author's dedicatory letter to Nicolas Bérault (folio a1 verso) and Froben's device (folio ff4 verso) are enclosed by strips of orna­ment, one block signed by Jacob Faber. The printer's device is a version designed by Ambrosius Holbein and signed by the blockcutter cb, first em­ployed in May 1517. 7 Only four copies are traced by the writer in North American libraries, of which two are imperfect ● Cambridge, Harvard University, Houghton Library, *NC5 Er153C 1522 ● New Haven, Yale University, Beinecke Library, BEIN Gr11 g522 (imperfect: Parabolae lacking) ● Urbana-Champaign, University of Illinois Library, IUA04555 ● Washington, dc, Folger Library, 220-608q (imperfect: Parabolae lacking) references British Museum, Short-title catalogue of German books (London 1962), p.275; Irmgard Bezzel, Erasmusdrucke des 16.

Mongolia, Gobi Desert, the Pamirs mountains, and central China, Tibet and other provinces shown. * JAPAN: An oval-shaped Japan taken from the earlier outlines of the Contarini and Waldseemüller map is located due East of China and Southeast Asia, with Latin text stating that the Japanese are idol worshipers, independent minded and do not pay tribute to the Chinese Emperor. Japan is a large island called Zipangri, a name derived from the Chinese 'Land of the Rising Sun,' which Polo learned about from the Chinese. * A MOST FASCINATING VIGNETTE OF THE GREAT KUBLAI KHAN: An unusual vignette is located just East of "Provicia Cathai" and shows the Great Kublai Khan [1215-1294] seated in his Yurt [others wrongly call it a "tent"] he holds two swords. In his background are a large number of other Yurts presumably containing "Golden Hordes" [Tartar-Mongols]. It was recorded that Marco Polo [1254-1324] met Kublai Khan in 1269. This is a charming feature of this map. * THE TEXT: The texts throughout are in Latin. * PRINTING & HAND-COLOR TECHNIQUE: The map's black outline was finely printed by woodblock

A fine, tall copy of a rare book. Collation: A-C6 D-E8 (title-page, dedications, Paraclesis and Apologia of Erasmus, “Capita argumentorum contra morosos”, Soloecismi, canon tables); a-z A-Z &6 (New Testament, colophon. &6r blank, device on verso): 316 leaves. a1v-&5v paginated 2-562. Greek and Roman types, woodcut headpieces, borderpieces and initials, woodcut columns for the canon tables. Slight worming. Contemporary pigskin over oak. Third edition of Erasmus’s New Testament. The preliminaries omit Erasmus’s Ratio verae theologiae, widely distributed by various printers as a self-standing tractate, but add a “Capita argumentorum” in which Erasmus responds, under 110 headings, to various criticisms, concluding with a long list of his distinguished patrons and supporters across Europe. The main change to the text is that Erasmus added to the text of 1 John 5:7-8 the “Johannine Comma”, a Trinitarian clause that had become standard in the medieval Vulgate text. Its absence in the first two editions had been criticized by Jacobus Stunica, one of the editors of the Complutensian Polyglot’s New Testament (including the Comma), with whom Erasmus had become engaged in a pamphlet war. The Comma was allowed by Erasmus in this third edition, on the basis of Greek manuscript evidence that had been brought to his attention. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [colophon: Wittenberg, Ianvario 1522]. 4to (20.7 cm; 8.125"). [44] ff.. First edition of Luther's influential treatise rejecting the Roman Mass, papacy, and celibacy within the priesthood written in the Fall of 1521 for the Augustinian friars of Wittenberg and dedicated to them, which treatise inspired the community to stop conducting private masses. Anna Linton points out another major tenet of the work: "[Luther] denounced contact between the living and the dead . . . . thereby removing any justification for prayers to the saints or intecessory prayers for the dead. . . . [Further,] the sacrament of Extreme Unction was declared invalid" (p. 18).    The title is printed within a woodcut architectural border attributed to Renaissance painter, printer, and friend of Luther Lucas Cranach (Kat. Cranach, 216); the text also contains four => seven-line woodcut initials (one repeated).    Provenance: Ownership and deaccession rubber-stamps for the Georg-August University in Göttingen on bottom margin of first leaf of text; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Benzing 997; VD16 L 3619.

        Tabula VII Euro

      Carta delle isole tratta dalla seconda edizione del 1525 della Geographia, curata da Laurent Fries, Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Mathematicorum principis , Opus Geographiae noviter castigatum e emaculatum additionibus raris et invisis, necnon cum tabularum in dorso iucunda explanatione. La mappa deriva da quella ideata dal Waldseemuller, rispetto alla quale risulta una riduzione. L'esemplare presenta il titolo in alto racchiuso in un cartiglio, ed al verso delle meravigliose cornici rinascimentali, tipiche della sola edizione del 1525. L'edizione del 1522 è firmata dal medico e astronomo tedesco Laurent Fries (1490ca-1532ca), allievo del Waldseemüller che, dopo la morte del maestro, nel 1518, ne pubblicò e corresse quasi tutti i lavori. Essa conteneva cinquanta carte: 27 tolemaiche e 23 moderne. La stampa e l'incisione sono a cura di Johann Grieninger, abile incisore del legno operante allora a Strasburgo. La tavola VII d'Europa di questa edizione è un chiaro rifacimento della omonima carta del Germanico inserita nell'edizione di Ulma del 1482. Il titolo della carta è inserito in un nastro svolazzante posto esternamente al disegno. L'orografia è segnata per mezzo di mucchi di talpa disposti in catene e colorati in marron (l'Etna con fiamme che fuoriescono); i fiumi sono a doppia linea, colorati internamente in blu; le coste sono caratterizzate da numerosi golfi a cipolla leggermente tratteggiati lungo la parte esterna. Silografia a proiezione trapezoidale, piccoli restauri alla piega centrale, e nel cartiglio in alto, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Nice example of the 1525 edition of Lorenz Fries map of Sicily and Sardinia. First published in Strasbourg by Johannes Gruninger in 1522, Fries map is based upon Waldseemuller's map of 1513. In 1525, an improved edition was issued, with a re-edit of the text by Wilibald Pirkheimer, from the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus. After Grüninger's death in 1531, the business was continued by his son Christoph, who seems to have sold the materials for the Ptolemy to two Lyon publishers, the brothers Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel, who published a joint edition in 1535, before Gaspar Trechsel published an edition in his own right in 1541.

Text of the tragedy in the center with the comments being distributed around in Roman characters.

Last layers frayed in right margin. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Très rare édition post-incunable des tragédies de Sénèque, illustrée de 10 figures sur bois in-texte (6,5 x 8 cm), en tête de chacune des dix tragédies. Nombreuses lettrines en noir ou criblées. Texte de la tragédie dans une colonne centrale avec les commentaires se distribuant autour, en caractères ronds. Titre dans un large encadrement floral gravé. On considère que l'édition princeps des tragédies de Sénèque est celle de 1484 à Ferrare (Andreas Gallicum). Colophon : « Impressum Venetiis per Bernardinum de Vianis de Lexona Vercellensem. Anno Domini M.D.XXII, die VI Novembris. »   Reliure en plein parchemin d'époque, avec un dos à nerfs refait en vélin anciennement (XVIIIème ou début XIXème). Titre manuscrit à la plume noire. Absence de la page de garde avant le premier feuillet de titre. Premier plat détaché des coutures, apparentes. Derniers feuillets effrangés en marge droite. Manque en bordure sur le plat inférieur. Exemplaire d'une belle fraîcheur, hormis le feuillet de titre, légèrement passé.     Édition réalisée par Girolamo Avanzi qui réunit ses propres commentaires sur les Tragédies de Sénèque, (lesquels ont parus initialement en 1507 à Venise), et ceux de Daniel Galetanus et Bernardino Marmitae de l'édition de 1498 des mêmes Tragédies de Sénèque. Ce professeur de philosophie et de philologie exerçait à Padoue, il a réalisé plusieurs éditions de textes antiques, notamment Catulle, Ausone... Il fut l'assistant d'Aldo Manuce dans la préparation des éditions de plusieurs textes antiques.   Dix tragédies de l'auteur nous sont parvenues, dont deux posent problème quant à leur attribution, Octavie et Hercule sur l'Oeta. Les Troades sont quant à elles une adaptation des Troyennes d'Euripide. Le théâtre de Sénèque ne contient pas de dramaturgie scénique ou d'intrigue, c'est un théâtre où, comme chez Euripide - dont l'auteur est très proche -, le verbe est souverain et commande le dénouement tragique. Les pièces paraissent ainsi comme une succession de déclamations où l'action est absente, Sénèque concentrant son écriture sur la tragédie interne de ses personnages après l'acte irrémédiable qui les a précipités dans la folie, ainsi Médée après ses crimes, ou Hercule après son infanticide. L'influence de cette écriture sera grande à la fin du XVIème et au début du XVIIème, notamment chez Garnier.

      Strasburgo 1522 - Xilografia, 1522 ma esemplare tratto dall'edizione del 1535 della Geographia di Laurent Fries. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, leggermente rifilata a sinistra, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Laurent Fries nativo di Burgundy, si stabilì a Strasburgo, dove si hanno sue notizie come disegnatore per l’opera di Peter Apian pubblicata nel 1520. Il lavoro lo portò ad entrare in contatto con l’editore Johannes Gruninger, che ebbe l’idea di replicare la versione della Geographia di Tolomeo del Waldseemuller, edita sempre a Strasburgo nel 1513. Sotto la direzione di Fries, le mappe vennero ristampate, modificate ed arricchite con note storiche e figure allegoriche, leggende e, a volte, con mostri marini. Vennero aggiunte tre nuove mappe, tra le quali questa carta marina del mondo, che rappresenta una delle prime mappe con la dicitura America. Rispetto alle altre carte della Geographia di Fries edita da Gruninger nel 1522, tutte basate sul lavoro del Waldseemuller, questa mappa presenta diversi elementi innovativi derivanti da fonti contemporanee, ed è monogrammata nel titolo con le iniziali dell’autore. No Title - The globe surroundd by seven circles and twelve wind-gods. - Dürer A. - Fries L. 1522-35. Dürer's authorship is proved by two letters of the mathematician and architect of Karl V, Johann Tscherte, who plainly mentions Dürer's name as the designer of the Armillary Sphere" The Illustrated Bartsch 10.534.

Questa mappa del mondo raffigura solo le estreme coste orientali dell’America, mentre di particolare rilevanza risulta la Groenlandia, raffigurata come una penisola che si estende dalla Russia.

In 1522 Fries reissued Ptolemy’s Geographia, based on the Strasbourg edition of Martin Waldseemuller, 1513. The maps were revised and reduced in size, with further minor changes. This map of the world depicts only the farthest Eastern coasts of America, while Greenland is quite relevant, shaped as a peninsula extending from Russia. The Lyon editions of the Geographia are quite rare, for they have been censored by the Calvinists. Example taken from the 1535 edition, Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae Enarrationis.

      Lione 1522 - Nel 1522 Fries produsse un’edizione della Geographia di Tolomeo, basata sulla versione di Strasburgo del 1513 di Martin Waldseemuller. Le carte furono rielaborate e ridotte nel formato, apportando lievi modifiche. Successivamente ristampata nel 1525, sempre a strasburgo, e nel 1535 a Lione e 1541 a Vienne, con modifiche nei titoli e nelle scritte al verso. Esemplare tratto dall’edizione del 1525, del "Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae Enarrationis". Xilografia, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Laurent Fries published in 1522 a new edition of the Geographia, with new maps drawn by Waldseemuller, re-engraved in a smaller size. The work is made of 50 maps; 27 derive from Ptolemy, 20 are the so called "modern ones" and 3 depict the South-East of Asia, China and Japan, and a sea chart of the New World. The first edition of Fries’ Geographia was bitterly criticized for its text; for that reason, the publisher Gruninger hired for the translation Willibald Pirckheimer who used Johannes Regiomontanus’ notes; Johann Huttich supervised the whole project. The text, on verso on each map, was enriched with beautiful and decorative woodcut drawings, ascribed to Albrecht Durer who absolutely took a part in the realization of the armillary sphere. After just three years, in 1525, a new edition of the Geographia was issued, the forth and the last in Strasbourg. Nonetheless, notwithstanding the editorial effort, Pirckheimer was not satisfied with the result and encouraged Gruninger to burn the blocks. Once both Fries and Gruninger had died, the blocks were bought by two brothers, Melchior and Gaspar Treschel. A third edition of the Geographia, including Fries’ blocks, was issued in Lyon in 1535. The supervision of the text was entrusted to Michael Servetus, who revised Pirckheimer’s volume. The text on verso is decorated with woodcut drawn by Hans Holbein the Young and Urs Graf. A following and last edition was printed in Vienna in 1541. From the Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae Enarrationis, 1525. Woodcut with fine colouring, very good conditions. R.
