Most pages from leaf 48 through 235 are quite clean and bright. Not a bad copy of what appears to be an extremely rare book. Pharsalia or De Bello Civili (On the Civil War), more commonly referred to as the Pharsalia, is a Roman epic poem by the poet Lucan (39-65 CE), detailing the civil war between Julius Caesar and the forces of the Roman Senate led by Pompey the Great. The poem's title is a reference to the Battle of Pharsalus, which occurred in 48 BC, near Pharsalus, Thessaly, in northern Greece. Caesar decisively defeated Pompey in this battle, which occupies all of the epic's seventh book. In the early twentieth century, translator J. D. Duff, while arguing that "no reasonable judgment can rank Lucan among the world's great epic poets", notes that the work is notable for Lucan's decision to eschew divine intervention and downplay supernatural occurrences in the events of the story. Scholarly estimation of Lucan's poem and poetry has since changed, as explained by commentator Philip Hardie in 2013: "In recent decades, it has undergone a thorough critical re-evaluation, to re-emerge as a major expression of Neronian politics and aesthetics, a poem whose studied artifice enacts a complex relationship between poetic fantasy and historical reality."NOTE: The pictures are of the actual item for sale.

      [London: R. Pynson, 1525]. RARE, the first edition of the second volume of Froissart's Chroniycles. Printed in black letter, double column, title within Holbein's woodcut Lars Porsena border, full-page royal arms on verso, woodcut initials Folio (315 by 215mm), in antique, near contemporary calf-covered boards, at some time long ago re-backed in dark brown calf. The spine with blind ruled flat bands and gilt lettering in one compartment and again at the tail. Provenance of: Thomas Carnhath? (contemporary signature on title); Thomas Archer, possibly James I's chaplain (1554-1630?, signature and price, 25s 8d, on title); Bedford Library (17th-century inscription and pressmark); Thomas Edward Watson (bookplate) a-a8, A-U6, AA-UU6, AAA-EEE2. A handsome copy of this very scarce work, lacks CC1 and CC2 and all after CClx, the first 14 leaves from another copy, lower corners (approx. 1" x 1") of the first half with an old stain, probably from damp and with some occasional wear to these lower corners. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE SECOND VOLUME OF FROISSART'S GREAT CHRONICLES, THE THIRD AND FOURTH BOOKS. Pynson's edition is a major monument of English printing in the sixteenth century. "Froissart might be called the great interviewer of the Middle Ages. The newspaper correspondent of modern times has scarcely surpassed this medieval collector of intelligence. He travelled extensively in the various countries of Europe; he conversed with gentlemen of rank everywhere; and he had the remarkable knack of persuading those about him to divulge all he wanted to know. He learned the details of battles from both sides and from every point of view. He delighted in the minutest affairs of every cavalry skirmish, of the capture of every castle, and of every brave action and gallant deed. He lived from 1337 to about 1410, and wrote chiefly of contemporaneous events. The 'Chronicles' are universally considered as the most vivid and faithful picture we have of events in the fourteenth century....As a picture of the most favorable side of chivalry, the work has no equal" (Adams, Manual of Historical Literature, pp. 334-5). "Like Froissart, Bourchier moved about amongst the noblesse; Henry VIII made him his Chancellor of the Exchequer for life and three years previous to the publication of the first volume above, he was present with that monarch at the Field of the Cloth of Gold."

        PROSE. Nelle quali si ragiona della volgar lingua, scritte al Cardinale de Medici che poi è stato creato a sommo pontefice e detto Papa Clemente Settimo, divise in tre libri.

      Vinegia, per Giovan Tacuino, 1525. In-4 p. (mm. 305x205), mz. pergamena antica con ang. (risg. rifatti), 96 cc. (con errori nella numeraz.; la prima carta porta il titolo al verso; la penultima, di Errata, porta al verso “Impresse in Vinegia per Giouan Tacuino, nel mese di Settembre del MDXXV..; l'ultima è bianca). Rara "prima edizione" di quest'opera del Bembo che assieme agli “Asolani” resta il suo più importante lavoro. Cfr. Gamba,136 - Cat. British Library, p. 81. “Nelle dialogiche "Prose della volgar lingua", abbattuto definitivamente il pregiudizio dell'eccellenza delle lingue classiche sul volgare, sostenne la fiorentinità della lingua italiana, propose come modelli per la poesia il Petrarca, per la prosa il Boccaccio, e diede una delle prime grammatiche della ns. lingua... Le "Prose" rappresentano non solo una delle più antiche storie della letteratura italiana, ma anche il manifesto di un linguaggio rispondente all'ideale rinascimentale di armonia e bellezza classica”.

        Interessante ms. perg. datato 24 ottobre 1525 costituito da 36 fogli (di cui 34 utilizzati per la scrittura) relativo all'atto di acquisto dei monaci cistercensi di San Martino dei Bocci (Parma) di diversi appezzamenti di terreno in Valserena (indicati con topoinmi quali la Longirolla, la Chiozola ed altri) redatti dai notai Johannes Baptista de Balesiis e Hyeronimus Gnoziis. Il testo e' vergato in scrittura umanistica corsiva, in latino. Coperta in cartone grezzo, con titolo ms. (macchia di umidita'). Il monastero di san Martino de' Bocci detto 'Certosa di Paradigma', fondato nel 1230 da Gerardo Bianchi, fu sede dei cistercensi di Citeaux. L'attivita' di intervento sul paesaggio da parte dei monaci riguardo alla bonifica dei terreni e alla creazione di zone a coltura, si riflette sul nome Valserena, resa tale dopo essere stata liberata dai 'bocci', cioe' da sterpaglie e pruni.

        Contra novum errorem, de sacramento corporis et sanguinis domini nostri Iesu Christi, epistola Ioannis Bugenhagij Pomerani.

      - [Augsburg], [Simprecht Ruff], 1525. 8vo. [4] lvs. Disbound in later brocade wrappers. VD 16 B 9389; Geisenhof 170; Knaake III, 126. Rare Latin edition of one of Bugenhagen's polemical treatises against the Zwinglian interpretation of the Eucharist. Between 1525 and 1529 the differences between Lutherans and Zwinglians about the nature of Christ's presence in the Eucharist had been expressed in an acrimonious pamphlet war. Both parties rejected the doctrine of transubstantiation, but Luther and his followers retained the notion of a real corporeal presence of Christ in the bread and wine, while the Zwinglians did not. Bugenhagen's 'Contra novum errorem' was published primarily against Zwingli and appeared in the late summer of 1525. It was printed in Wittenberg, Nürnberg, Dresden, Speyer, as well as in Augsburg. - A few marginal wormholes (not affecting the text, except for one tiny wormhole which slightly affects the woodcut border on the title page) and one wormhole in the text (slightly affecting about four letters).

        1525 Handwritten Reformation Manuscript Zwingli De Caena Dominica Lord’s Supper

      Transcribed from: [Tiguri : In aedibus Christophori Froschouer, anno 1525, mense Martio. First edition] - 1525 Handwritten Reformation Manuscript Zwingli De Caena Dominica Lord’s Supper “I beseech Christ for this one thing only, that He will enable me to endure all things courageously.” Ulrich Zwingli A contemporary, original handwritten manuscript of Ulrich Zwingli’s ‘De Caena Dominica’. This work is an identical transcribed version of the 1525 first edition of Zwingli’s letter addressed to Matthew Alber. This eucharistic letter was written in 1524 to Alber, the preacher at Rutlingen, discussing the Lord’s Supper. According to Johnson and Leith, “Zwingli would come to incorporate this exegesis into his later theology, and soon thereafter in 1525, this move would precipitate a conflict with the Erasmian Catholic Joachim am Grut before the city council. As a result of Zwingli’s victory in this conflict, the Mass in Zurich was abolished and a form of the [Lord’s] Supper thought to be more in accord with apostolic practice was instituted.” (Johnson, Leith 314) The original letter was also copied in manuscript form, and not initially delivered to Alber. The hope here was to avoid quarrels with Martin Luther. (Smith & Jacobs, 345). While this example is completely handwritten, it maintains the integrity of the original printing – font styles, attention to text placement – with the only major difference being the lack of a title page and an unillustrated first initial.

        GEOGRAPHICAE ENARRATIONIS LIBRI OCTO BILIBALDO PIRCKEYMHERO INTERPRETE, ANNOTATIONES JOANNIS DE REGIO MONTE IN ERRORES COMMISSOS A JACOBO ANGELO IN TRANSLATIONE SUA.

      Strassburg Johannes Grüninger for Johannes Koberger 3 April 1525 - Folio (40.5 x 26.3 cm). Printed title within elaborate woodcut border, 27 double-page maps of the ancient world, 22 double-page maps of the modern world, one full-page map of Lotharingia on verso of map 46, together 50 woodcut maps, most with Latin text on versos enclosed in elaborate woodcut borders, mounted on vellum guards, woodcut diagrams in the text (one by Dürer), including one full-page of an armillary sphere. Contemporary half blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, two clasps; lacking one strap. Fine example of Fourth Strassburg edition of Ptolemy. The work includes the first printed map in an edition of Ptolemy to name America, the first printed map of Southeast Asia, and the first printed map of China. The list of contributors is a veritable 'who's who' of German Renaissance publishing: the text was translated by Wilibald Pirckheimer using the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps under the editorship of Johann Huttich; the ornamental woodblock designs on the reverse of the maps are attributed to Albrecht Dürer, who also contributed the woodblock of the armillary sphere. The present edition was printed for Johann Koberger by Johann Grüninger, using the woodblocks of the first Grüninger edition of 1522. The present edition features 27 woodcut maps based on Ptolemy and 23 'modern' maps based on geographical knowledge of the time. All are in the trapezoid shape developed by the German cartographer Nicolaus Germanus in 1460. The 'modern' section was copied by Lorenz Fries, in a reduced format, from maps prepared by Waldseemüller in 1513, and accordingly contains new maps of North America and the West Indies, Lorraine, Switzerland, Crete, North Africa, Southern Africa, Southern Asia and the World. To that group Fries added three maps: South East Asia and the East Indies, China and Japan, and a navigational map of the world. The two former are the first separate printed maps of the regions they depict. With the exception of Quinta Asie Tabula, the maps are from the same blocks as those of the 1522 edition. Map 47 is single page on verso of map 46. Map 50, Orbis typus universalis by Laurentius Fries, is the first map in a Ptolemy in which the name America is used. The account of the discoveries of Columbus and others is on the back of Map 28. The dedication by Bilibaldus Pirckeymherus, dated at Norenberge. Kalendis septembris. Anno Salutis nostre. M.D.XXIV., begins on the verso of the title and ends on the verso of folio 2. Index Ptolemaei (with half-title within illustrated border): [68] p. at end. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Geographicae enarrationis libri octo Bilibaldo Pirckeymhero interprete. Annotationes Joannis de Regio Monte in errores commissos a Jacobo Angelo in translatione sua.

      Johannes Grieningerus, communibus Johannis Koberger impensis excudebat. [Imprint from colophon: recto of leaf Q8], 1525 - First map in an edition of Ptolemy to name 'America' Folio atlas (406 by 265mm), title within ornamental woodcut border, and 50 numbered woodcut maps (27 double-page maps of the ancient world, 22 double-page maps of the modern world by Lorenz Fries, and one full-page map of Lotharingia on the verso of map 46), mounted on vellum guards, most maps with descriptive text on verso enclosed within elaborate woodcut borders (said to be the work of Hans Holbein and Urs Graf), woodcut diagrams in the text, contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over oak boards, metal clasps.Collation: A-M(6), N(4), O(6), 50 numbered double-page woodcut maps a-e(6), f(4), P(6), Q(8) [Collophon]. Fourth Strassburg edition. The text was translated by Wilibald Pirckheimer, using the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps under the editorship of Johann Huttich. The ornamental woodblock designs on the reverse of the maps are attributed to Albrecht Dürer, who also contributed the woodblock of the armillary sphere. The present edition is the second one printed by Gröninger. However, all maps are printed from the woodblocks of the first Gröninger edition of 1522.The maps are all drawn on the trapezoid projection developed by the German cartographer Nicolaus Germanus (1420-1490) in 1460. 27 are drawn according to Ptolemaic theory, and a further 23 'modern' maps have been added, which incorporate contemporary knowledge.The 'modern' section was copied by Lorenz Fries, on a reduced format, from the maps prepared by Waldseemüller for the 1513 Strassburg edition of Ptolemy, and accordingly contains updated maps of North America and the West Indies, Lorraine, Switzerland, Crete, North Africa, Southern Africa, Southern Asia and the World.To that group Fries added two entirely new maps, which were the first separately printed maps of the regions they depict: one of Southeast Asia and the East Indies, and one of China and Japan. He also added his own navigational map of the world.The 50 woodcut maps, with the exception of 'Quinta Asie Tabula', are from the same blocks as those of the 1522 edition. Map 47, is a single page on the verso of map 46. Map 50, 'Orbis typus universalis', by Lorenz Fries, is the first map in a Ptolemy in which the name 'America' is used. Maps 28, 34, 49, and 50 relate more or less to America, and are described in a note to the preceding edition. The account of the discoveries of Columbus and others is on the back of Map 28.

Illuminated manuscript on parchment, in French, France, likely Paris, c. 1525 (likely after 1524). Dimensions 255 x 180 mm. 32 folios, written in brown in a French lettre bâtarde on up to 21 lines, 2-line high initials in liquid gold. large opening initial painted in blue and highlighted in white tracery on a red ground highlighted in liquid gold, 32 painted heraldic shields, one large full-page miniature set in a liquid gold architectural frame. BINDING: Old red velvet over boards. TEXT: The manuscript is an account of the possessions of the House of Longueville. It is an abridged summary of the rights and claims over the lands and titles of the House of Orléans-Longueville, with historical justifications, as well as the identification of the customs that apply to the various lands and fiefdoms under their rule. Very little is known about the author. ILLUSTRATION: Among the four other identified copies of this work, the present manuscript is the only one to contain a full-page frontispiece miniature indicating that this was most likely the dedication copy made for Louis II d'Orléans-Longueville. The full-page miniatures symbolically depicts the moment when the fiefdom of Châtelaillon is granted to the Counts of Dunois by Charles VII as two knights meeting on horseback. It was painted by the Master of the Paris Entries and his workshop in their characteristic graphic style. Their focus on line and tone is most evident in the faces of his figures which are outlined in black, with swollen eyes and pronounce red lips. Such features along with decorative elements like the blue painted initials on dark read grounds and "banderoles", scrolls included in miniatures with mottoes or heraldic elements, are common throughout the Master and his workshop's oeuvre. PROVENANCE: Manuscript copied and painted in France, likely in Paris, given the frontispiece miniature was painted in a Parisian workshop. A shelfmark was added in the sixteenth-century. CONDITION: Traces of use, frontispiece slightly rubbed, overall good condition. Full description and photographs available

This is a beautiful copy, in a very nice binding of an important edition of Homer's Odyssey. This edition of The Iliad and The Odyssey by Johannes Lonitzer (Lonicer), is dedicated, with an epistle in Greek, to Philipp Melanchthon, perhaps the most influential of the Northern European Humanist scholars of the early sixteenth century. With the encouragement of Martin Luther, Melanchthon took up the Chair of Greek at the University of Wittenberg in 1518 and began his lectures on Homer in the same year. He inspired a generation of German classical scholars, including Lonitzer, to produce editions or translations of Homer. Wolfgang Köpfel was a printer in Strasbourg (Argentorato) siding with the reform movements and operating as a clandestine printer-propagandist for some of the more radical elements within the Strasbourg Reformation. His uncle, also called Wolfgang Köpfels (Latinised to Capito) was, like Lonitzer and Melanchthon a classical scholar, theologian and reformer in Strasbourg. This important edition brings together a number of significant figures from the early sixteenth century German Humanist and Reform movements. With this edition of The Odyssey is the Batrachomyomachia or the Battle of Frogs and Mice. This is a comedic parody of the Iliad, attributed to Homer, but according to Plutarch the work of Pigres of Halicarnassus. This edition also includes three biographies of Homer by Herodotus (more properly pseudo-Herodotus), Plutarch and Dio Chrysostom.

A truly lovely copy, housed in a custom-made full leather box with gilt title to spine. 139 ff. The exceedingly scarce first edition of Pomponazzi's collected works, a milestone publication of Renaissance philosophy, which constitutes the authorized "opera" of Pomponazzi and brings together for the first time the known body of writing of arguably THE most important philosopher of the Renaissance, disseminating them to a wider audience. This seminal publication, printed in the year of Pomponazzi's death, remains to this day the standard edition of and the main source of reference to the works of "The last Scholastic and the first man of the Enlightenment" (Sandy, Randall, Kristeller). It greatly influenced the dissemination of his works and thought and came to directly influence philosophical and scientific thought of centuries to come. "Pomponazzi's thought and reputation were extremely influential in the centuries after his death. Even before it was printed, his treatise "On incantations" circulated widely in manuscript among philosophers, physicians and early modern naturalists (see Zanier 1975). Due to his mortalist theory of the soul, 17th-century "free thinkers" regarded Pomponazzi as one of their own, portraying him as an atheist (see Kristeller 1968; Paganini 1985). Enlightenment thinkers of the 18th century pushed to extremes his distinction between natural reason and faith, while 19th-century positivists, such as Ernest Renan and Roberto Ardigò, saw in Pomponazzi a forerunner of their own beliefs and a champion of naturalism and empiricism." (SEP).Pietro Pomponazzi (1462-1525) was an author of both commentaries and original philosophical treatises and also as such a key figure in the Aristotelian tradition of the Renaissance. Pomponazzi stood at a crossroad in the history of Aristotelianism - he still studied the great logicians and natural philosophers of the 14th century, which his Italian humanistic colleagues had given up (focusing instead on "man" and his place in the universe), but at the same time he had a highly original approach to the teachings of Aristotle and a unique uninhibited approach to the nature of the universe; as opposed to his contemporaries, he responded philosophically to the achievements of humanism, always seeking the truth and the "naturalist" explanation. With his wide-ranging works, published together here for the first time, Pomponazzi was a fore-runner of that difficult to define critical Aristotelianism, which sought to find the true meaning of the works of Aristotle, lay them bare and develop them further, in order to find the true nature of the universe - to explain how the world functions without any preconceived notions (like the belief in Christ, etc.). "This freedom from doctrinal orthodoxy - quite rare among Renaissance Aristotelians - was one of Pomponazzi's real contributions to the progress of scientific thought. By refusing to be bound by specific position, by constant testing and doubting. Pomponazzi brought the firm conclusions of the scholastic Aristotle to a dead end. And in doing so, he opened up a whole new philosophy of nature." (Pine, p. 19). As such, Pomponazzi occupies a truly unique position in the history of Renaissance philosophy. "Pomponazzi's thought, by combining Averroism and Alexandrism, could not be squeezed into one category or the other. Indeed all such divisions were too simple when applied to him." (Pine, p. 5). With his magnificent undoctrinal works of pure thought and reason, Pomponazzi inaugurated a tradition that was to become dominating in following centuries, founding an entirely new philosophy of nature and paving the way for the acceptance of a later mathematical view of nature. "During the twelve decades or so between Pomponazzi's arrival (1484) and Galileo's departure in 1610, the learned community that Shakespeare called "fair Padua, nursery of arts", achieved a distinction in scientific and medical studies unmatched elsewhere in Europe. Thus, Pomponazzi's career in northern Italy brought him close to the most exciting advances of his time in science and medicine. In keeping with the nature of his university appointments, he approached Aristotle from a perspective quite distant from Bruni's humanism or Lefèvre's theologizing. [...] Pomponazzi's Aristotelianism developed entirely within the framework of natural philosophy". (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 105).

        FRANCE: TABULA III EUROPAE

      Strasbourg: Johannes Grüninger 1525 - Wood-cut with full original colour, verso text with originally coloured decorative margins (Very Good, slightly stained in white margins, old burn hole in the upper part of the image - exactly on the spot where fire of a torch, depicted verso in decorative margin should be), 31 x 39 cm (12.2 x 15.4 inches). Early wood-cut map of France with stunning original colour. This early wood-cut map of France, with fascinanting rare to find original colour, was made by Lorenz Fries and was published in the second edition of his atlas, issued in Strassburg in 1525. Lorenz Fries: Groundbreaking Renaissance Cartographer- Lorenz Fries (c. 1485 - 1532) was an Alsatian physician and mathematician, educated at the universities of Pavia, Piacenza, Montpellier and Vienna, who collaborated with Martin Waldseemüller on a project that was never completed owing to the latter&#146;s death. Fries was fascinated with his late friend&#146;s cartography, particularly Waldseemüller&#146;s great atlas, Claudii Ptolemei viri Alexandrini (Strasbourg: Johannes Schott, 1513). It featured 47 maps, of which 27 represented traditional Ptolemaic conceptions, while 20 were entirely new, modern maps. Fries worked with Johannes Grüninger, one of Waldseemüller&#146;s publishers, to produce a reduced-sized edition of Waldseemüller&#146;s atlas, the first edition of which was printed in Strasbourg in 1522. Importantly, Fries&#146;s atlas included three &#145;new&#146; maps that were not featured in Waldseemüller&#146;s work, a navigational World map and the first printed maps of China & Japan and Southeast Asia (being the present map). The 1522 edition of Fries&#146;s work was evidently issued in very limited numbers, as it is today exceedingly rare. In 1525, a second edition was published by Grüninger, with the same compliment of maps and an improved text written by the eminent intellectual Wilibald Pirkheimer, who worked from the notes of the legendary astronomer and mathematician Johannes Regiomontanus. After Grüninger&#146;s death in 1531, his son Christoph sold the materials for Fries&#146;s Ptolemy to two Lyon publishers, the brothers Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel, who published a joint edition in 1535. The Trechsels hired Michael Servetus (Villanouanus), a controversial scholar who was later burned at the stake for heresy, to rework Pirkheimer&#146;s text. This edition of the atlas was entitled Clavdii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae Enarrationis Libri Octo. In 1541, moving production to the nearby town of Vienne, Gaspar Trechsel alone published an edition. While the original 1522 Grüninger woodblocks were used to print all four editions, and geographically the maps from each edition are the same, their border decorations were altered and (where applicable) verso text changed with each edition, so making the maps from each issue distinguishable. Lorenz Fries&#146;s work had an enduring legacy, as it greatly influenced the endeavours of great cartographers such as Sebastian Münster and Giacomo Gastaldi.

        Lettera autografo di Francesco I Re di Francia. Agosto 1525 ?

      1525 ?. Lettera autografo di Francesco I Re di Francia. Agosto 1525? In-8° grande, 1 f., 16 righe con firma e data? Ben conservata. Francesco I (nato François d'Orléans; Cognac, 12 settembre 1494 - Rambouillet, 31 marzo 1547) è stato re di Francia dal 1515 alla sua morte. Era il figlio di Carlo di Valois-Angoulême (1459 - 1º gennaio 1496) e di Luisa di Savoia (11 settembre 1476 - 22 settembre 1531) e fu il primo della dinastia regale dei Valois-Angoulême, che si estinguerà con la morte del nipote Enrico III, avvenuta nel 1589. La madre, rimasta vedova, dovette provvedere all'educazione dei figli e si avvalse dell'aiuto del suo confessore, Cristoforo Numai da Forlì. Ciò, forse, spiega l'interesse che Francesco dimostrò, anche da re, per le questioni religiose. L'8 maggio 1514 Francesco sposò Claudia di Francia (1499 - 1524), figlia del re Luigi XII, della Casa di Orléans, e duchessa di Bretagna. Dato che Luigi non lasciò eredi maschi e che la lex salica rimaneva l'unico documento giuridico che regolasse le questioni di discendenza, negando alle donne la possibilità di salire al trono, alla morte di Luigi, avvenuta nel 1515, Francesco, Conte d'Angoulême, gli succedette nella reggenza di Francia. Nella corsa al potere del Sacro Romano Impero perse l'elezione alla carica imperiale (1519) in favore di Carlo V d'Asburgo, che riuscì a comprare i voti degli elettori grazie al sostegno finanziario del banchiere tedesco Jacob Fugger. Uff. pacco 3.

        Untitled [Tabula IIII Asiae] Tabula IIII Asiae

      Strassburg: Johannes Gruninger, 1525. unbound. Map. Uncolored woodcut. Sheet measures 15.25" x 20.5". This rare and early Ptolemaic woodcut map dating to 1525 depicts the region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf, covering Israel, Palestine or Holy Land, Syria, Jordon, Lebanon and Iraq. Includes Cyprus. This map was included in the 1525 Strasbourg edition of the Lorenz Fries' "Geographia" of Ptolemy, published by Johannes Grüninger. Verso includes Latin text and includes a key to important locations marked on the map. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the centerfold and some discolorations. Minor foxing.<br><br> Lorenz (Laurent) Fries (c.1490 - c.1531) was a physician, astrologer and geographer born in Alsace. After studying medicine and spending time at several European universities, he settled in Strasbourg in 1519, where he met published and printer Johann Grüninger. With Grüninger, he worked on a new edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia", which was published in 1522 and 1525 and included woodcut maps reduced from Martin Waldseemuller's "Geographie Opus Novissima". Fries eventually had to move out of Strasbourg which marked the end of his cartographic career. He would continue to write on medicine, astrology and religion until his death in c.1531. The subsequent 1535 and 1541 edition of Fries' "Geographia" were published posthumously.<br><br>Johann Grüninger (c.1455 - c.1532) was a Swabish printer and publisher based in Strasbourg and was known at the time to be the most prolific printers in Strasbourg. He was associated with the Saint Die group of scholars formed by, amongst others, Martin Waldseemüller. After his death in 1531 or 1532, his son Christoph sold his map plates to Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel from Lyon who published the later editions of the "Geographia".<br><br>Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477. Very scarce.

        Il Petrarcha con l'espositione d'Alessandro Vellutello. Di novo ristampato con piu cose utili in varii luoghi aggiunte. Allessandro Vellutello sopra i Triumphi del Petrarca.

      Kl.-8, 8 Bl., 317 S., 3 Bl., einige figürliche Initialen, 6 Textholzschnitte im letzten Teil ., Perg. m Stehkante., Vorderer Deckel partiell erneuert, Einige Seiten mit Wurmfrass a. Steg, minimal fingerfleckig, einige Seiten eselohrig Die kommentierte Ausgabe des Canzoniere von Alessandro Vellutello ist die berühmteste und erfolgreichste des 16. Jahrhunderts. Sie ist 1525 zum ersten Mal erschienen. Die massgebliche Ausgabe ist aber die von Vellutello überarbeitete, die 1528 veröffentlicht wurde. Vielen Lesern war die Anordnung der Gedichte im Canzoniere nicht klar. In ihm sind die Gedichte über die Liebe zu Laura mit Gedichten anderen (politischen, kirchenkritischen) Inhalts vermischt. Vellutello hat den Canzoniere neu geordnet, so dass sich die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Petrarca und Laura - in vita (prima parteI) und in morte (seconda parte) - Schritt für Schritt verfolgen lässt. Die Gedichte, die mit diesen Ereignissen nicht in Verbindung stehen, hat er in einer Parte terza ,seines' Canzoniere zusammengestellt. Vellutello war davon überzeugt, dass es die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Petrarca und Laura wirklich gegeben hat. In der ausführlichen Einleitung stellte er dazu alle Informationen zusammen. (Petrarca-Ausstellung, Strauhof, Zürich, 2004).Alessandro Vellutello (1473 - nach 1550), wirkte ab 1515 in Venedig. 1544 publizierte er seinen berühmten Kommentar zu Dantes La Comedia.

        Album with 60 mounted autographs by European rulers, noblemen and military men. Prob. assembled in Great Yarmouth, 1820s; contents date from c. 1525-1775.

      1525. 12 unnumbered ff. (1 blank), 60 numbered ff., 64 blank ff. With 56 armorial drawings in watercolors (1 in India ink) and 40 decorative grisaille cartouches washed in India ink. Late 18th c. calf with gilt spine, gilt-tooled border on boards and star-shaped center panel on both boards. Leading edges gilt. Oblong 12mo. Remarkable collection of autographs from the library of the English botanist and antiquary Dawson Turner (1775-1858) with his autogr. ownership entry on first leaf (dated 1825). Dawson, who had published on botany and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1802, turned his interests to antiquities in the 1820s. He and his children were taught to draw by their good friend, the renowned Norfolk artist John Sell Cotman, who resided in Yarmouth from 1812 to 1823. - The signatures, mostly clipped from letters and other documents, are from historic French, German and Dutch personages, including William, Prince of Orange (1533-84); Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736); Johann Tserclaes, Count of Tilly, commander of the Imperial forces in the Thirty Years' War (1559-1632); Cornelius Jansen, theologian and later cardinal, founder of Jansenism (1585-1638); Philip de Montmorency, Count of Hoorn (1524-68), and Lamoral Count of Egmont (1522-68, opponents to Spanish rule in the Netherlands, executed); Johann Casimir, Duke of Saxe-Coburg (1564-1633); August the Younger, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, founder of Wolfenbüttel's Herzog August Library (1579-1666); Johann Wilhelm von der Pfalz, Elector Palatine (1658-1716); André-Hercule de Fleury, Cardinal (1653-1743); Fredrick, landgrave of Hesse-Eschwege (1617-1655); Floris van Pallant, Count of Culemborg (1537-98); Froben Ferdinand zu Fürstenberg-Mößkirch (1664-1741), and many more. Most names are accompanied by a skilled armorial illustration in full colour painted on the opposite page; forty of the signatures are bordered by decorative washed cartouches with specially designed figurated, landscape and allegorical ornaments, sometimes rather ingeniously incorporating the signature's pen flourishes and very likely prepared by members of the art-loving and gifted Turner family, possibly with help from Cotman. - Occasional slight brownstaining; book block loosened. Corners bumped; defects to upper spine end and lower third of spine. A remarkable (and remarkably presented) ensemble of autographs, forming a striking early 19th-century showpiece.

"Münster begann die Reihe seiner Heidelberger hebräischen Schriften, die übrigens fast ausnahmslos bei Johann Froben in Basel gedruckt wurden, mit dem später oft überarbeiteten und neu aufgelegten Dictionarium hebraicum (1523). Drei Handschriften von 1510, 1511 und 1521 gingen voraus; eine vierte Handschrift, die dem Druck zugrunde lag, ist verlorengegangen" (Burmeister, S. 11).

Darnach erlebte es noch zahlreiche Auflagen und Erweiterungen und ist über 40 Jahre lang das bedeutendste hebräische Wörterbuch in Deutschland geblieben. Zu seiner Beliebtheit hat beigetragen, dass das Buch kurzgefasst war, handlich und mit seinem Preis von 15 Schillingen einigermaßen erschwinglich war, sich also für den täglichen Gebrauch durch Studenten und Theologen vorzüglich eignete" (Burmeister, Biogr.

        Interessante ms. perg. datato 24 ottobre 1525 costituito da 36 fogli (di cui 34 utilizzati per la scrittura) relativo all'atto di acquisto dei monaci cistercensi di San Martino dei Bocci (Parma) di diversi appezzamenti di terreno in Valserena (indicati con topoinmi quali la Longirolla, la Chiozola ed altri) redatti dai notai Johannes Baptista de Balesiis e Hyeronimus Gnoziis. Il testo è vergato in scrittura umanistica corsiva, in latino. Coperta in cartone grezzo, con titolo ms. (macchia di umidità). Il monastero di san Martino de' Bocci detto 'Certosa di Paradigma', fondato nel 1230 da Gerardo Bianchi, fu sede dei cistercensi di Citeaux. L'attività di intervento sul paesaggio da parte dei monaci riguardo alla bonifica dei terreni e alla creazione di zone a coltura, si riflette sul nome Valserena, resa tale dopo essere stata liberata dai 'bocci', cioè da sterpaglie e pruni.

Diversamente, altri lo identificano con Benedetto Verini, figlio naturale o presunto di Marcantonio, sciogliendo le iniziali BV che appaiono su alcune sue stampe, mentre, per il Bartsch, l'ultima lettera potrebbe avere il significato di Veneziano o, più recentemente (ma ancora dubitativamente), di Tommaso Vincidor da Bologna. Incisore di riproduzione di opere altrui, eseguite talvolta su richiesta di Antonio Lafrery, i suoi modelli prediletti sono Raffaello, Peruzzi, Giulio Romano e Tommaso Vincidor.
