HUNTER, Dard..
[Chillicoth] 1937, Mountain House Press. Morocco spine over pictorial paper boards, 79P., bibliography, signed by Hunter illustrated with photos, and a large number of actual paper samples [wanting 2], else complete, color paintings. R A R E

A stunning and marvelous reference containing actual paper samples. The whole work was printed by hand by the celebrated paper scholar, author and prolific writer on hand-made paper, Dard Hunter. He was the author of numerous other rare and important books on hand-made papers relating to: Japan, Korea, Viet-nam, Siam, as well as others. Please inquire with us for other titles in stock. * CONTENTS: This work contains 48 real specimens of Chinese ceremonial papers, as well as the most beautiful gold & silver foil samples produced in China. The hand-painted joss, "Door," "Kitchen," and other "Gods" are done with the utmost care and attention to detail, all finely painted in polychrome. Its important to point out, that these "Door Gods" were replaced every New Year, the old ones were burned in a ritual, while the new ones were affixed to doors and door jams throughout the house, kitchen and other places. They did not survive, nor were the old ones ever kept as it was considered bad luck, so there are none which survive to this day except for a few found in this book or collected by foreigners. The paintings are exceptionally ornate, reflecting the large number of "Gods" respected and used for good luck and protection during the New Year. Mock money samples representing silver coins as well as a sample silver coin are tipped in. Several of the samples are large and folding, there are also 6 folding pages of text and illustrations. * There are two bamboo paper samples the first is dated from K'ang Hsi [1662-1723], the second is from Ch'ien Lung [1736-1796]. Both are "laid" papers and are from books of the period, one has Chinese characters and Manchurian the other only in Manchurian. These samples are tipped in and nicely described. * A fine suite of eight black & white photographs showing the process of Chinese paper-making as well as tools associated with the art are exhibited. Following also a substantial essay on the techniques of hand-made papers employed in China. * THE BINDING & EDITION: FIRST & ONLY LIMITED, EDITION OF 125 COPIES, SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY THE AUTHOR. This beautiful work was hand-bound by Peter Franck, the spine is red morocco with gold-stamped titles. The covers are covered boards printed from original woodblocks used in making wall decorations for the apartments of the last Emperor of China. The corners are in vellum, the text is printed on paper made by hand in the Orient from mulberry bark. * COLLATION: The work contains 9 photogravures, 2 specimens of old paper printed text, some 48 original ceremonial paper samples, spirit and related papers, 7 illustrations and other graphic plates. Some of the woodcut illustrations are large folding types and very impressive ! * CONDITION: The binding is very nice with minor and usual rubbing to the head/tail of spine, the vellum corners are bright and without any wear. The contents is clean, occasional offsetting which is usual for this work, otherwise a very condition. Some of the samples have minor tears, wrinkles again a common feature of this work. Still in very clean collector's condition. * This is truly one of Dard Hunter's most lavish and beautiful books on hand-made papers. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Dard Hunter: MY LIFE WITH PAPER * Dard Hunter: PAPERMAKING * Joesf Hejzlar: EARLY CHINESE GRAPHICS *[Yuen shih Pan]: SPECIAL EXHIBITION COLLECTORS' SHOW OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE WOODCUT PRINTS. * CHINESE POPULAR PRINTS: Leningrad 1988 * Shucun Wang: PAPER JOSS: Eeity Worship Through Folk Prints. * Clarance Day: CHINESE PEASANT CULTS: Being a Study of Chinese Paper Gods. * Schlosser 38 * Color scans can be sent by email.

Adams B1077; not in Biblia Sacra.</I> Plantin's 1567 octavo edition of the Louvain Bible with the text in double columns printed in a tiny "Nonpareille" roman type, one of the smallest Bibles of its day, nicely displaying Plantin's excellent presswork and Pierre Haultin's type. The side margins contain references and variants. The title-page has a beautiful ornamental frame as well as Plantin's famous printer's device with a pair of compasses and the legend <I>Labore et constantia.</I>By an imperial edict all suspected Bibles in Latin, French or Dutch had been prohibited and the Theological Faculty of Louvain was commanded to prepare new authorized editions in these languages. The Latin Bible, edited by the Dominican Johannes Hentenius and protected by an Imperial privilege, first appeared in a 1547 folio edition at Louvain, followed by the Dutch edition in 1548 and the French in 1550. In 1559 Christoffel Plantin published his first edition of the Louvain Latin Bible, in a less expensive octavo format. Here at the height of his career he printed it once more.Owner's inscription at foot of title-page: Ph. Sandelion Rothomgensis 1721. In good condition. Binding slightly rubbed with the loss of most of the gilding, spine concaved, only traces of ties.

MEERMAN, Gerard.
<I>Bigmore & Wyman II, pp. 32-35; Enschede, Typefoundries, pp. xix, 206; for the binding: cf. De Prijs is het Bewijs 40 b and illustr. 39 for the certificate.</I> First edition of a classic on the origins of printing, the result of many years of research. Bound as a school prizebook, with the prize certificate. Famous in its time for promoting Laurens Coster in Haarlem as the inventor of printing, it broke new ground by its minute study of early printing types, by reproducing samples of them in the 10 finely engraved plates and by its study of paper. Although Coster has long been banished to the realm of fairytale and the books formerly attributed to him are now dated about ten years later than Gutenberg's bible, the methods pioneered by Meerman (with technical advice from the printer and typefounder Johannes Enschede, who in turn took advice from the punchcutter J. M. Fleischman) mark the beginnings of the scientific study of early printing. Very good copy with the printed prize certificate of the Latin School at Amsterdam.

PERRIER, Francois, and Petrus SCHENCK.
<I>Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) XXV, 542 (portrait) & 1836-1936; 7 copies located in libraries worldwide; cf. Thieme & Becker XXX, pp. 29-30.</I> Rare first and only edition printed from Schenck's plates, of a set of illustrations of statues that survived in Rome, originally drawn, engraved and published by Francois Perrier (1590-1650) in 1638. Except for plates 22 and 23, Schenk's plates appear in mirror image. Among the statues are the Laocoon group, Marcus Aurelius, Cleopatra and many other great works of classical art. The contents (Latin and Dutch in parallel columns) divide the plates into three groups: upright male figures , upright female figures and reclining figures, but in fact the two double-page plates are large groups of upright figures forming scenes. Like the engraved contents list in Perrier's 1638 print series, this list gives some information about the statues, including their locations.The book is dedicated to Christian Eberhard, Fürst of Ostfriesland with an illustrated dedication plate with the Ostfriesland arms and a mezzotint portrait following the title-page. These do not appear in all copies: Picarta lists 3 copies of the present edition, but mentions no portrait.In good condition, with tears expertly and unobtrusively repaired in 3 plates (49-50, 88). Binding with light stains. An attractive presentation of 100 statues or groups of statues from classical antiquity.

[MANUSCRIPT - MILITARY - FRENCH ROYAL].
[Paris?, 1732].
13.5 x 19 cm.. Contemporary red goatskin morocco, sewn on 5 cords, gold-tooled spine, gold-tooled fillets on boards and board edges, title in 2nd and 3rd of 6 spine compartments (further each with 5 small fleurs-de-lis), blue-black goatskin morocco pastedowns with wide, richly gold-tooled frame, headbands worked in red and white, gilt edges. Manuscript in brown-black, red and blue ink on vellum, some of the lettering and borders gilt. With a beautiful frontispiece painting in coloured gouaches (14 x 9.5 cm) pasted on the page facing the opening of the text, showing a small warship at a shipyard in a small harbour being repaired by workmen. On the left shore a man tends pots on an open fire outside a small hut while 2 others watch and talk, across an inlet behind it are the larger ruins of a church(?) with tower, in the background more people, smaller boats and the far shore. Centred at the foot is a scrollwork shield (leaning against a crate) with the text "Marine du Roy. 1732." Frontispiece plus [2], 26 ll., including 2 double and 1 larger folding.

Splendid vellum manuscript on the condition and organisation of the French Roya Navy of King Louis XV in the year 1732, including maritime data on the French colonies in Canada, Louisiana and the West Indies. The manuscript is beautifully calligraphed in a formal roman and italic in brown-black, red and blue, sometimes with gold covering the ink, with 2 decorated initials in gold over red, one with red decorations and a red and gold frame, the other with red and blue decorations. The use of the high quality vellum, the fine gouache illustration, the lavishly executed calligraphy and the beautiful contemporary binding, indicate that the manuscript must have been produced for an important person, probably a head of the marine or an official at the court.The manuscript contains extensive important and interesting data about the French navy in the year: a list of the King's warships arranged by rank, drawn up on 1 January 1732, showing that 84 warships were available in total, a general list of naval officers and a list of those who serve in the colonies: Canada, West Indies, Louisiana, etc., a specification of the fleet's weaponry per area/colony which is then subdivided to cover the individual vessels, a list of the 138 officers serving in France, etc. While most of the data shows the state of affairs in 1732, leaves 7 to 14 list officers in various categories chronologically from 1691 to 1732.<B><I> </I></B>The manuscript gives a complete survey of the size and organisation of the French navy of the Ancien Regime in 1732 and must have been top secret at the time! Leaves 22 and 23 are double leaves written on the inside only, and leaf 24 is a larger folding double leaf also written on the inside only (in fact, most of the leaf numbers were probably intended to apply to double-page spreads, some with and some without writing on the other sides, but they can be more simply described as numbered leaves).From the library of the well-known art historian and book collector Henri Beraldi (1849-1931), with his two small gold-stamped leather bookplates or labels pasted to the first (paper) endleaf, one with his ca. 1890s MHB monogram in a wreath stamped on green leather and the other with "Ex libris Henri Beraldi" in a decorative frame stamped on orange leather. Beraldi was a great collector of prints and books and owner of one of the finest collections of bindings. He is the author of two important manuals: <I>Les graveurs du XVIIIe siecle</I> and <I>Les graveurs du XIXe siecle: guide de l'amateur d'estampes modernes</I>. He also was perhaps the most distinguished and knowledgeable writer on French bindings of the 19th century.Besides the frontispiece and text leaves, the manuscript has a black sheepskin parchment leaf at front and back, and 2 paper leaves between the blank leaf and pastedown at the front and another 2 at the back.
The paper endleaves are browned, but the manuscript is generally in fine condition, with only an occasional minor spot or small stain. The binding is slightly worn at the hinges, head and foot of spine and on the raised bands, but is also generally fine. It apparently had 2 metal fastenings, attached only with adhesive (traces of the catch-plates and anchor-plates can be seen on the boards). A remarkable and luxurious manuscript providing a wealth of information on the French Royal Navy in 1732.

[ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT - HERALDRY]. AGUIAR RIBEIRO, Damiao de.
[Lisbon?, completed 1609 or soon after].
27 x 19 x 3 cm Contemporary green velvet over beechwood(?) boards, sewn on 4 supports, a vellum bifolium at front and back as endleaves, 2 cast brass decorated fastenings (eye-clasps on later green leather straps, catchplates with pegs, and matching anchor plates). With green silk guards loosely inserted before the title-page and each of the two coats of arms. Rebacked in green morocco with a blind-tooled pelican(?) in each of the 5 compartments. Illuminated manuscript in black ink on calf vellum, with a marginal note in red ink. The text block measures 17 x 11.5 cm. With the title in Roman inscriptional capitals in an oval scrollwork cartouche with 2 putti, 7 masks, fruits and foliage, topped by the Aguiar heraldic eagle, the whole in numerous colours on a gold background; 2 full-page coats of arms, first the original Aguiar arms (helmed, mantled, crested and with a green collar) with motto "super aethera", then a quartered arms with (dexter) the arms of Damiam d'Aguiar Ribeiro himself (Aguiar above and Ribeiro below) and (sinister) the arms of his wife Francisca de Mendoca de Vasconcelos (Vasconcelos above and Mendoca below, the latter with initials SS) with the same helm, mantling and Aguiar crest, but with a tan collar edged in gold and with motto "vix ea nostra voco". Further with 3 decorated initials (35-40 mm) in several colours and gold. The text is written in a large and very narrow formal pointed-pen italic (17 lines per page or about 10 mm from baseline to baseline), with extensive passages in an upright pen-drawn hand resembling roman printing types with capitals in a Roman inscriptional style (22 lines per page or about 8 mm from baseline to baseline). The roman capitals are also used for headings, opening lines, etc., where they are sometimes decorated with a delicate zig-zag in gold. Further with decorated paragraph marks and elaborate leaf ornaments and each page framed in red double rules (1 page also in gold rules). The illumination and arms have been attributed to Estevao GONCALVES NETO (d. Vizeu 1627). ll. [i blank], [ii], [iii blank], [iv], [v blank], [vi], 1-16, [17-21], [22-57 blank], [58-59], [60 blank].

A superbly calligraphed illuminated manuscript in Portuguese, with passages in Latin, giving extremely detailed genealogical and heraldic information about the family of Damiao de Aguiar Ribeiro (1535-1618), who wrote the text himself and no doubt commissioned the present manuscript. De Aguiar was a member of the Lisbon Council of King Philip II of Portugal (King Philip III of Spain) and had both the funds and the connections to enlist the best scribe and illuminator to execute the manuscript for the glory of his family. The illumination and arms have been attributed to Estevao Goncalves Neto (d. Vizeu 1627). The manuscript begins the story in the 12th century with the author's direct ancestor in the male line, Dom Gueda o velho: it notes the third(?) generation in the time of King Alfonso Henriquez, that is Alfonso I, King of Portugal from 1139 to 1185. It continues with extensive information about Dom Gueda's descendents, their spouses and their contacts with various kings of Portugal. The last entries, giving information about De Aguiar's daughters ("minhas filhas"), are dated 10 October 1606 and 30 March 1609 and the preceding text includes references to events of 1602, so the scribe was probably given the complete or nearly complete text and executed the present manuscript mostly or entirely at one time. The marginal note in red, in the same roman hand as parts of the text, gives De Aguiar's exact date of birth, 14 April 1535. The Ribeiro arms of De Aguiar's maternal line quarter the Aragon arms with the Vasconcelo arms from his wife's family.Following the account of the family geneology and history come sections on the heraldic collar (sollar), bearing (brasao), shield (escudo das armas), helm (elmo), mantling (paquife) and four Latin epigrams (epigramma), then the notes about De Aguiar's daughters. The verso of the note about the daughters has only the words "Conde d'Atouguia" (Count of Atouguia), a title held by the De Ataide family. This suggests that they were related, but no further information was filled in. The earliest bookplate in the manuscript shows the Povolide arms, born by Luis Vasques da Cunha e Ataide, second Count of Povolide (1697-1761), so it probably descended to him from the family.The remaining leaves are blank except for a 3-page papal brief at the end, commending De Aguira to King Philip and dated 31 August 1602. The calligraphy and initial are by the same hand as those in the main part of the manuscript.The manuscript collates: [pi]-[3pi]2 [A]-[E]4 [F]2 [G]-[P]4 [Q]2 = 66 ll., all bifolia with the hair side inward except E, I1.4, N2.3 and Q. The title and 2 coats of arms appear on [pi]2r, [2pi]2r and [3pi]2r, so that each is preceded by a blank leaf and has its verso blank. The text is written on both sides of the leaves, the main part from A1r to F1v (42 pages) and the papal brief from P4r to Q1r (3 pages). The rest of the leaves are blank, except for the ruling in red.The calligraphy is stunning, making the book a masterpiece of the Portuguese scribal art. The style originates with the papal scribe Giovan Francesco Cresci in Rome, who introduced a pen cut with a narrower nib, showing the new styles in his 1560 writing manual. This initiated the shift that lead to the pointed pen that was to reign until the late 19th century. Cresci is best known for his small chancery hand, but in larger sizes his manual also shows an unusually narrow and more formal italic, though it also begins to break with the traditional broad-pen italic. Cresci also pioneered the revival of roman capitals based on Roman inscriptional forms and showed pen-drawn upright hands closely resembling roman printing types. The Iberian penninsula adopted Cresci's new styles earlier and more extensively than almost any other region, leading to a golden age of Spanish and Portuguese calligraphy. Whether the present scribe took his forms directly from Cresci or from one of his Spanish or Portuguese followers we do not know, but the large narrow pointed-pen italic used for most of the text shows his influence, as does the upright hand and the Roman capitals.
With the armorial bookplate of Luis Vasques da Cunha e Ataide (1697-1761), 2nd Count of Povolide, probably related to De Aguiar via the Counts of Atouguia (see above), and two 20th-century bookplates with the arms of Frederico Gavayyo Perry Vidal, the larger one in gold on blue. With an occasional minor smudge, but still in fine condition. The binding has been rebacked, much of the pile has worn off the velvet on the boards and there are some worm holes in the boards and paste-downs. The center of each board shows holes and an impression form a metal centrepiece formerly mounted on it. The binding remains structurally sound. A fine calligraphic showpiece for any collection.

COMMELIN, Isaac.
Amsterdam, Jodocus Janssonius, 1651 (colophon: printed by Paulus Matthijsz., 1651).
With an engraved title-page (portraying Frederik Hendrik with dozens of allegorical figures, a view in the background and a battle scene in a cartouche at the foot), 2 letterpress divisional-titles for the 2 parts, the first in red and black, a full-page engraved portrait of Frederik Hendrik, and 34 double-page (or in 2 cases larger folding) engraved plates. Further with a large woodcut tailpiece (plus 1 repeat) and a few large woodcut decorated initials (3 series). All engravings beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand and most highlighted with gold. [8], 276, [6]; [1], [1 blank], 216, [4]; [6], 104, [2]; [2], 420, [3], [1 blank] pp. <I>With: </I><B>(2) [ORLERS, Jan Jansz., and Isaac COMMELIN].</B> Wilhelm en Maurits van Nassau, Princen van Orangien, haer leven en bedrijf, of 't begin en voortgang der Nederlandsche oorlogen.Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius, 1651. With a letterpress title-page, engraved title-page (with William the Silent and Maurits flanking an enthroned Maid of Holland, numerous figures, and 2 views in the background), letterpress divisional title for part 2, full-page engraved portraits of William and of Maurits, Maurits's full-page engraved coat of arms (mantled and crested, with his motto above and an emblematic image below), and 46 double-page (or in 2 cases larger folding) engraved plates, mostly maps, plans and bird's-eye views of cities, fortifications and battles. Further with several woodcut tailpieces and numerous woodcut decorated initials (about 8 series). All engravings beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand and most highlighted with gold. 2 complementary works, each with 2 parts in 1 volume. Folio (32 x 21.5 cm). Uniform contemporary or near contemporary blind-tooled vellum, sewn on 6 double cords, with a large scrollwork centrepiece in a panel of fillets, blue sprinkled edges. With gold-tooled cornerpieces, flowers in the spine compartments, gold fillets and morocco spine labels added in the 18th-century. Ties lacking.

First editions of two complementary works, in matching format, similar layout and beautifully and extensively illustrated, devoted to the lives, history and military careers of the three most important stadtholders and Princes of Orange to the time of publication, including a great deal of information on the Dutch conquests, trade and commerce in the Americas in general and Brazil in particular. In the present copy the engraved title-pages, portraits, coat of arms and illustrations are all beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand, most of them highlighted in gold. Truusje Goedings, expert in 17th-century Dutch colourists, has identified the colouring as the work of Frans Koerten (1603-1668), the most acclaimed Dutch colourist of the middle of the 17th century.The three protagonists are William the Silent of Nassau (1533-1584), leader of the Dutch revolt against Spain and spiritual father of the independent Dutch Republic that took form soon after his assassination, and his two sons Maurits (Maurice) (1567-1625) and Frederick Hendrik (1584-1647) who succeeded him as Princes of Orange and Dutch head of State. While William the Silent was almost universally admired in the Dutch Republic, some feared his almost royal descendants might return it to the yoke of monarchy while others revered them almost like kings. Both books appeared only three years after Frederik Hendrik's death and only about a year after the birth of his grandson William of Orange, who was eventually to follow them as Prince of Orange and Dutch head of state before he added the English crown to his titles as King William III.Ad 1. A lavishly illustrated work on the life and military career of Frederik Hendrik of Nassau, Prince of Orange, Dutch Stadtholder from 1625 to his death in 1647. It gives an ample account of the events of this period in the Dutch colonies and possessions in America. Among these are the conquest of Brazil and Piet Hein's capture of the Spanish Silver Fleet off the coast of Cuba, illustrated with finely engraved plates. Other plates show the sieges and battles fought against the Spanish in the Low Countries during the Eighty Years' War, including Groll, Bergen op Zoom, Venlo, Maastricht, Breda and others.Ad 2. First edition of Commelin's greatly expanded version of Orlers's history of the Eighty Years' War in the Low Countries and the great exploits of the military commanders-in-chief William the Silent and Maurits of Nassau. Though partly taken from Jan Jansz. Orlers, Den Nassauschen lauren-crans, 1610, it brings the history up to date by adding Maurits life and military achievements to his death in 1625, including the Dutch voyages to Brazil. The plates, mainly showing the theatres of war and plans and views of the besieged towns, also include a view of the Bay Todos os Sanctos and the city of San Salvador in Brazil, designed by Jacob Willekes in 1624, and Maurits's grand funeral procession at Delft. Something must have gone wrong with the printing or colouring of Maurits's portrait, for one can see that the portrait was printed on the leaf, but another print from the same plate has been pasted over it as a cancel. One of the large folding plates originally contained two scenes printed from a single plate, but in the present copy they have been cut apart and inserted separately.Although the gold tooling and spine labels appear to be 18th-century they were clearly added to the binding long after the blind tooling. The endpapers are watermarked: IGvL monogram = Amsterdam arms above IG, and it looks older than Laurentius 100 (used in The Hague, 1668), which has the same monogram and initials.
With a small tear in the foot of one map and water stains at the foot of the leaves in both works, but otherwise in very good condition. The bindings have cracks in the joints. Beautifully coloured copies of two magnificently illustrated works on the Princes of Orange and Dutch activities in Brazil and elsewhere.

[PORTLAND MUSEUM]. [LIGHTFOOT, John].
[London, Skinner and Co., 1786].
2 works in 1 volume. 4to. Contemporary vellum, sewn on 3 vellum tapes, laced through the joints, gold-tooled decorated roll on boards, gold fillets on spine, red morocco spine label, marbled endpapers (spot pattern; Wolfe 66). With full-page engraved frontispiece showing the interior of the Portland Museum with numerous objects from its collection. VIII, "194" [= 192]; 6 pp.

The auction catalogue of the celebrated collection of Margaret Bentinck Cavendish (1715-1785), Duchess of Portland, with prices and purchasers (and some additional lots) in manuscript. Prepared by John Lightfoot, the Duchess's librarian, it describes 4156 lots, mostly natural history specimens, but also coins, pictures, china, snuff boxes, books, prints and drawings. The Duchess, a patron of the sciences and one of the wealthiest women in Britain, befriended Joseph Banks and employed the brilliant Daniel Solander to catalogue her collection of shells, aiming to have "every unknown Species described and published to the World" (preface). The sale of her huge collection was held on 38 days from 24 April to 7 June 1786 and included important ethnographical objects and natural history specimens from the Pacific, many collected during James Cook's voyages.Lot 1372 describes "specimens of the body linen made of bark, of Oeerea, Queen of Otaheite, with some of her Majesty's hair". Other lots includes "a curious feather ornament from New Zealand" (1371), "large and various small specimens of cloth, made of the bark of the cloth tree" (1376) from Tahiti and Hawaii, and "two fine red birds ... from Sandwich Islands - a new species" (1666). The second to last lot describes the famous vase now in the British Museum and known as the "Portland vase", one of the most celebrated cameo-glass vessels from antiquity; it was sold to the Duchess's son, William Cavendish-Bentinck, 3rd Duke of Portland for 1029. Other purchasers include H[orace] Walpole, [Josiah] Wedgwood and other familiar names.The catalogue was printed in a limited edition, each copy numbered in manuscript on the title-page (the present copy is no. 621). Like the Mitchel copy noted by Forbes, the present copy is bound with a six-page catalogue of "cameos, intaglios, and precious stones, and other curiosities ... many out of the Arundel collection", sold on 8 June 1786, on the premises of the late Duchess of Portland. The Arundel collection was assembled primarily in the 16th century by Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundel (1585-1646).
Both catalogues with prices and purchasers for all tems in a single, neat contemporary hand.With a contemporary etched armorial bookplate by Benjamin Way for an unidentified owner (arms incorporating the initials MM) and a late 19th-century engraved armorial bookplate above initials AW. Slight browning, and a few spots on the title-page,but otherwise in very good condition. Binding with boards bowed, splitting the front hinge at head and foot. The catalogue of the famous Portland Museum, with all prices and purchasers.

Ad IV) Ein in Frag- und Antwortform gehaltener alchemistisch-kabbalistischer Führer für Studenten der höheren Semester, gedruckt mit einem schönen Titelholzschnitt (Figura cabalae), der zuerst 1606 in Franz Kiesers 'Cabala chymica' erschien. Eine unveränderte Neuausgabe dieses Textes wurde 1761 in Frankfurt am Main veröffentlicht. Der Titelholzschnitt mit ausführlicher Erläuterung verso, "depicts a bearded figure holding a geometrical compass and square, standing behind a terrestrial globe surrounded by the seven astrological planets, all radiating their energies onto the earth. The relationship between the planets and earth is described by the words Supernaturalis and Naturalis, respectively, at the top and bottom of the engraving, and reinforced by the famous As above, so below message from the Emerald Tablet at the base of the engraving" (Peter J. Forshaw, Cabala Chymica or Chemia Cabalistica. Early Modern Alchemists and Cabala, in: Ambix, Bd. LX [2013], S. 362). - BIBLIOGRAPHIE: Brüning 2439; VD 17 (Online Kat.) 23:242928F; Sudhoff 277; Rosenthal 2886; Ferguson I, 135; Kopp, Alchemie II, 230. The authorship of this work first published in 1646 is attribute to the Nuremberg mathematician, astronomer and preacher Franz Ritter, however Brüning also mentions the name of Marcus Freund (1603-1662), clergyman and friend of Ritter. The text discusses the influence of various planets on the individual metals and semimetals and is adorned with seven fine allegorical woodcuts od: 'De Saturno - On Lead, De Jove - On Tin, De Marte - On Iron, De Venere - on Copper, De Mercurio - On Mercury, De Sole - On Gold, De Luna - On Silver'. The book "contains much interesting odd information, e.g., pp. 66 ff., where an explanation of Paracelsus' theory of the loadstone is given; pp. 280 ff, where an account of the London alchemist Antony's remedies against the plague is given; pp. 340 ff., where work in the mines is discussed; and p. 263 where methods of preparing artificial mineral waters are dealt with" (Denis I. Duveen). To this second edition are added two tracts on the plague, the first by Paracelsus, in the edition of Johann Jacob Nietheimer, and the second by the Vienna court physician Wilhelm Helm (Pithopoeus). Bound with at the end the second edition of an alchemical-kabbalistic guide for the advanced student in a series of questions on astrology, metals,the philospher's stone, etc. Its first edition had appeared at Frankfurt am Main in 1761. - Minimal browning, an excellent Sammelband. - Contemporary half vellum (new endpapers, with small stam HZ ex-libris).

Horae Beatae Mariae Virginis.
Frankreich, , um 1480. Format: . Blattgröße: 163 x 115 mm. Schriftraum: 103 x 75 mm. Bildgröße: 150 x 106 mm. 17 Zeilen in schwarzer, leicht geneigter Gothica textualis mit roten Hervorhebungen.. Mit Miniatur in Gold und Farben, Randleiste, 1 großen und 6 kleinen Initialen in Gold, Blau und Rot sowie 3 Zeilenfüllern.. .
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION: A beautiful miniature-leaf of Christ on the cross with the Virgin and Saint John the Evangelist from a Latin book of hours copied on vellum in France around 1480. Leaf with a four- and one-line initial and a wide foliate border on three sides. Verso three other initials. Trimmed rather closely at top and on right side.

Ausdrucksvolle Kreuzigungsdarstellung*** Das prachtvolles Blatt stammt aus einem Stundenbuch für ein Benediktiner-Kloster in Frankreich. In meisterhafter Weise verbindet der Miniaturist in seiner Darstellung der Kreuzigung Christi Stilelemente des Spätmittelalters mit jenen der italienischen Frührenaissance. Das mächtige Kruzifix teilt den Bildraum der hügeligen, frühlingshaften Landschaft mit Bäumen, Büschen und einer Burgruine in zwei Teile: Links steht Maria in blauem, goldgehöhten Gewand, den Kopf leicht geneigt und die Hände zum Gebet erhoben. Hinter der Muttergottes blickt Johannes der Evangelist zum Gekreuzigten empor. Rechts tritt der Hauptmann, gefolgt von seinen Soldaten, ans Kreuz heran und deutet mit dem Zeigefinger auf den Gottesohn. Der Körper des Gekreuzigten zeugt von den Spuren seines Leidens: Sein Blick ist gebrochen, das Haupt auf seine rechte Schulter herabgesunken, an seinem Brustkorb treten die Rippen hervor und aus seinen Wundmalen strömt Blut. In diesem Moment ist er ganz der Mensch, der sich geopfert hat, und nicht weniger als ein "christus triumphans". Im Gegensatz zu Maria, Johannes und dem Hauptmann, deren Plastizität und Detailliertheit in der Materialwiedergabe von der Kenntnis italienischer Malerei und genauem Naturstudium zeugen, ist die Auffassung der Figur Christi noch ganz dem Spätmittelalter verhaftet: Sein kleiner Körper ist expressiv-unnatürlich verdreht und die Arme sind spindeldürr wiedergegeben. Das frische Blatt oben und am rechten Rand knapp beschnitten.
