About this Item: ReInk Books, 2017. SoftCover. Condition: New. Reprinted from 1582 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.

About this Item: Nürnberg Anton Koberger 20IX Type 14 21, 1496. Zweispaltiges Original-Inkunabelblatt, 21,7 x 30 cm. Marginalglossen der Zeit im Randbereich. Wasserzeichen. 2 kl. Wurmlöcher. Rechte obere Ecke fleckig. Incunabula text leaf. Tafel 72 Aus: Haebler: Wiegendruck, 1927 unter Originalpassepartout. Koberger druckte seit 1471 in Nürnberg und hat in den späteren Jahren Schriften verschiedener Arten in seiner Werkstätte aufgenommen. Die Schrift des Destructorium ist in enger Anlehnung an eine Type des Johann Amerbach entstanden und tritt bei Koberger schon 1492 auf.

Ein Bild des Inkunabelblattes wird gerne auf Wunsch per email zugeschickt!. Seller Inventory # 2535

About this Item: Paris, Gilles de Gourmont, s.d. [au colophon] : novembre 1521., 1521. In-folio, 251 feuillets dont une belle page de titre avec le marque typographique de Gilles de Gourmont et le collophon au dernier. Maroquin brun à gros grain estampé à froid, bordure à décor de palmettes, décor à compartiments avec fers de formes variées, petites armoiries au centre, dos orné, roulette intérieure, tranches dorées sur marbrure (Girard relieur à Angers). Les petites armoiries au centre des plats sont celles de la famille Du Plessis Villoutreys. TRÈS RARE ÉDITION de ce traité sur les vices de la société, dénonçant particulièrement les abus et les excès de l’Église. « Ces dialogues, qui ont été fort goûtés au moyen âge, sont des espèces d'apologues en prose, offrant chacun un sens moral » (Brunet). L'ouvrage a également été édité sous le titre de Dialogus creaturarum. Fort populaire en son temps, le Destructiorum viciorum fut composé en 1429 par Alexander Carpenter, écrivain anglais qui vécut au XVe siècle et dont on sait peu de choses aujourd’hui. C’est le seul texte connu de ce lettré et pas moins de six éditions se sont succédées entre 1480 et 1521. Les neuf premiers chapitres traitent de la gourmandise, ce qui vaut à l’ouvrage d’être cité par Simon, Bibliotheca bacchica, n°113. Édition partagée entre quatre libraires parisiens comme l’indique le colophon, c’est-à-dire Jacques Ferrebouc, Jean Petit, Gilles de Gourmont et François Regnault, très élégamment typographiée en lettres gothiques, à deux colonnes, et ornée de nombreuses lettrines à fond criblé décorées de fleurs et d'oiseaux. Exemplaire très bien relié par Charles Girard (1849-1919), relieur actif à Angers. Moreau, t. III, n°4; Brunet II, 674 (éd. non citée). Seller Inventory # img18890

About this Item: 1496. Condition: Very Good. Nürnberg, A. Koberger, 1496. Folio. a8-z8,A8-L8. Last page blank. Nice hand-painted initials and other details in the text. Fine contemporary calf with wide raised bands and richly blind-stamped covers. Old label with nice MS lettering on spine. Hinges lacking but original clasps preserved. Binding with some minor worming. Spine darkened and defective at top, small hole on the last band at bottom. Covers somewhat unevenly faded and with a few insignificant defects where the wooden boards can be discerned. Rear cover with small defect at top, probably the point to which a chain originally has been attached. A few leaves misbound. Some minor foxing, spotting and dampstains. Occasional corrections, commentaries and markings. Minor wormholes throughout, both in the margin and in the text, which are somewhat larger in the text from the h- to the l-sheets and in the margins towards the end. Stain on leaf c8, corner repaired on leaf e2. Final leaf partly loose. Nice old name cipher under the impressum on last leaf. Contemporary notes on front pastedown. Old ownership inscription on title leaf, "Conventus ratisbonensis frum eremit: divi augustini", for the Augustine monastery in Regensburg. In two other places, leaves a2 and v3, the older inscription: "Ad augustinen Rate". Small bookplate of Anders Persson in Västerås. A beautiful copy.ISTC ia00393000. GKWD 867. First edition published in 1480, this is the third of four incunable editions. On sins in general and the seven deadly sins in particular. "Destructorium is an excellent source for the history of mentalities, and notably for attitudes to witchcraft and magic" (D.L. D'Avray, in "Oxford Dictionary of National Biography"). Alexander Carpentarius who lived at the beginning of the 15th century was from England and the son of a carpenter. The pastedown at the front of this volume contains a booklist in a small and angular German hand of the early sixteenth century. It is not entirely legible, but it opens with a clear date of 1504 and the statement that a man with the abbreviated name "R'dus" (probably "Rikardus" or "Reinhardus") had died in that year. What follows includes a brief note on a gift of books, presumably from him, to an unnamed convent in Regensburg: the note ends with the statement that "infra scriptos libras" passed to the convent in Regensburg). The identity of the monastic house is established by the ex libris at the head of the title page in a fine semi-humanist hand: "Conventus Ratisbonensis Fr[atr]um Eremit[arum] Divi Augustini", that is the convent of Augustinian hermits there, founded in 1267 and dissolved in 1810. The list itself contains 10 books, most of which appear to be incunables or very early printing. It includes the book this list survives in and among the other titles can be mentioned Augustine on the Psalter (most probably Augustine's "Explanatio Psalmorum" printed in 1489, 1493 and 1497), Thomas "de Argentina", also known as Thomas de Strasbourg, on the Sentences (most probably the 1490 printing) and the "lecturam super Genesiam Jacobi magni", most probably Jacques le Grand, "Postilla tam litteralis quam mystica super librum Genesis"; this may have been in manuscript. The monastic house in the centre of Regensburg was a substantial cultural centre within the town. After the secularisation the library was scattered along with the rest of the collections of the convent, but the state of Bavaria made an effort to contain the diaspora of the books and the majority of recorded examples from the medieval library there entered the Stadtsbibliothek in Munich in 1816-17. Krämer Handschriftenerbe des deutschen Mittelalters (1990) records some 74 manuscripts there, from a total surviving number of 84. All of the books in this gift will probably have had the same inscription inserted on their pastedowns, and it is possible that further research may unearth more volumes from this donation. However, the absence of this booklist from any of the published records. Seller Inventory # 40594B
