OCLC 15356948. Der Pergamentband der Zeit wurde auf der Suche nach Manuskriptresten ein wenig malträtiert, stellenweise an den Innendeckeln geöffnet, insgesamt ein wenig angeschmutzt und bestoßen.

In Vadians Text wurden am Rand handschriftlich die Kapitel notiert auf die sich der Text bezieht und eine Falschbezeichnung "Liber primus" auf Seite 95 ebenso aufmerksam wie vehement in "secundus" korrigiert, auch dieser Teil ab Seite 222 falsch paginert, das Folgeblatt ohne Seitenangabe ist recte Seite 223/ 224, das dann folgende mit 223 bezeichnete recte 225 und so fort, mit sich teilweise ausgleichenden Fehlern endend mit 297 (recte Seite 299) !

Exemplar com título de posse da época na folha de guarda; e com ex-libris de Hugh Cecil Earl of Lonsdale. Obra contém o mais antigo texto geográfico conhecido escrito em latim. Obra clássica muito reeditada: foi impressa pela primeira vez em 1471, com oito edições incunabulares subsequentes, enquanto que até 1530 houve praticamente uma nova edição a cada dois anos. Obra de importância para a compreensão do mundo Renascentista.

Binding: beautiful contemporary hard parchment, artistically blind tooled at both folders. Red label gilt at spine. Armorial bookplate from the Earl of Lonsdale. Later edition of Mela's geography, after many earlier editions dating back to 1471. This edition is the second to include observations by Vossius [pages not mentioned at Palau]. The first was printed at The Hague in 1658. This text includes American references, which first appeared in the 1498 Salamanca edition. Mela's work is the only formal treatise on the subject, written in classical Latin by the first Roman geographer. Mela divides the earth into five sections, two of which he deems uninhabitable, and declares the existence of "antichthones" (see page 7 with graphic map) which inhabit the southern zone. The climate of which would prove unbearable for the population of the northern regions. Palau 160099: «front. 8 fols, 419 pags con com 8 láms». European Americana 700/188.

About this Item: [Chr?tien Wechel], Lutetiae Parisiorum, 1530. Mela's work De orbis situ libri tres (a.k.a., De chorographia) is, of course, a standard and famous work of ancient geography and, dating from the first century A.D., is the oldest surviving geographical text written in Latin. It enjoyed readership for centuries in manuscript and was first printed in 1471 with eight subsequent incunable editions, while in the 16th century to 1530 there was virtually a new edition every other year: Clearly, it was => a book of interest and importance for the Renaissance. It is a short work; the Petit printing of it in 1513, for example, occupies only 60 pages. In this edition, however, Mela's text (printed in roman) is surrounded by => extensive commentary in italic by Joachim Vadianus (1484?1551), thus extending the whole to 196 pages. The volume ends with an appendix, "Loca aliquot ex Vadiani commentarijs summatim repetita, & obiter explicata," consisting of Vadian's study of Mela's work and attempting to address inconsistencies and problems in it. Printer Wechel has arrayed the commentary around the text here with => notable attractiveness, he has supplied quite a number and variety of attractive initials, and both his main title-page and the sectional one for the "Loca aliquot" are dramatically presented with the same => elaborate multipart woodcut title border. Although Mela's work is solely concerned with the world as known by Greeks and Romans, one should remember that their world did encompass portions of Africa and a knowledge of India. Additionally the appendix, originally written in 1521 and first appearing in the 1522 Basel printing of Mela, has a coda consisting of a 1515 letter of Vadian?s to Rudolph Agricola, the younger, that briefly discusses => Vespucci (X5v) and the New World (Y1r) when discussing the Spanish empire. This is the third edition of Vadian's Mela, taken from the second edition (1522), but only the second with Vadian's appendix. Graesse comments, "Second ?d. . . . fort chang?e et corrig?e sur des mss." Whether all copies of the work were issued with a map has been long discussed and is without resolution: What we do know is that some have a map, most do not. Provenance: Macclesfield copy with the bookplate and handsome pressure-stamps. Evidence of readership: Scattered minor (usually one or two words) marginalia. Folio (34 cm; 13.25"). [14] ff., 196 p., [1] f., [28] ff. (without the fold. map, if one was actually issued with it). Harrisse, BAV, 157; Renouard, Paris, 2210; Alden & Landis 530/30; Sabin 63958 (not callin for a map); Graesse, V, 401 (not calling for a map). 18th-century quarter vellum with blue-green paper?covered sides, author's name in old ink to spine. Title-page lightly soiled, light discoloration or inkstains in some margins, light occasional foxing; pinhole-type worming in text of some pages with no loss of text, and a corner of last leaf torn away without loss of text; on pp. 170?96, a light waterstain across upper gutter not touching text and another across upper outer corners impinging on it. As usual, without the map found in only a few copies. Macclesfield pressure-stamps and marginalia as above. => A good, sound, and soundly pleasing old folio. Seller Inventory # 34114

About this Item: Basel, Andreas Cratander, 1522. With 2 richly figured woodcut title borders by Hans Franck, and many woodcut figured initials. 20 unn. leaves, 220 pp., 44 unn. leaves. Folio. 18th-century calf with richly gilt spine, gilt armorial supralibros of the Bavarian Elector Palatine Karl Theodor von der Pfalz on both covers (signed B.P. in lowest compartment). Basel, (Andreas Cratander), 1522. Pomponius Mela's famous Latin "Geography" in the epochal edition by the great Swiss humanist Joachim von Watt or Vadianus (1484-1551), first published in Vienna in 1518. The present second edition is revised and augmented, and is the first to contain the "Loca aliquot" in which Vadianus once more confirmed his modern scientific point of view by critizising the obsolete one of Johannes Camertus. Further on, this second edition contains the famous letters to Rudolph Agricola with the suggestion, first made by Martin Waldseemüller, to name the Mundus Novus after Amerigo Vespucci "America" (Ff5 recto). There are also very few copies known of this present edition which contain the adaption of the 1507 Waldseemüller world map modelled by P. Apianus in 1520. ".some bibliographers have claimed that it belongs to the book. This, however, is a matter of doubt. The text contains no allusion to such a map, and it is probable that the work was issued without it" (Sabin). As was the trait at this time as well as being sold separately: there is, however, some doubt as to whether the Apianus map, published in Vienna for the Solinus in 1520, was originally issued with this Basel 1522 edition of Mela. Apian's map may have been published separately at that time in Vienna. it". This edition is also interesting for the history of Alpine exploration, containing Vadianus' description of the first ascent of mount Pilatus near Lucerne, accomplished by him in the summer 1518 accompanied by his humanist friends Johannes Xylotectus, Oswaldus Myconius, and Conrad Grebelius (p. 34). The architectural title border, signed and dated "1519 HF", is attributed to Hans Furtenbach, a contemporary of Urs Graf with whom he shares stylistic characteristics. It shows the figure of "Hercules Gallicus" beneath the title, the figures of Lucretia on the left and Judith on the right, both standing above Andreas Cratander's Occasio-device. The head of the frame shows, from left to right, the young Occasio again, an old woman as Penitence, and a rich man. The frame of the title to part II shows putti playing and sea monsters, in the two vertical columns of grotesques Cratander's Occasio. This border in the style of Hans Holbein style is most probably by Hans Franck. Both borders were first used by Cratander for his edition of Gellius' "Noctes Atticae" in 1519. The Bavarian Elector Palatine Karl Theodor von der Pfalz (1724-1799), for whom the present copy was bound, was a friend of poetry and music and the promoter of the first German National Theatre at Mannheim, under the direction of Dalberg and Iffland. - Ms. library inscription on first flyleaf verso, small stamp at foot of title, two tiny stains to title border, minor spotting to first leaves, last text leaf with restored tear in top margin slighthly affecting the head-line, some old ms. marginal annotations or underlinings. On the whole a very good copy in a unique binding. - VD 16 M 2314; Adams M-1056; STC, (German), 608; JCB I, 82; Sabin 63957; Harrisse 112; Alden/Landis 522/9; Oberrheinische Buchillustration II, nos. 299 and 301, and illus. 320; cf.
