[NORTHERN ITALY: THE PRINTER OF ANTONIUS DE ROSELLIS, "DE LEGITIMATIONIBUS", C. 1480-1485] 4to (265 x 189mm.), 78 leaves (of 80, the first leaf blank), 35 lines, Roman letter, last words on a10v reading correctly "comincio aparlare", 7-line initial on a1 in gold on a white vine stem background, white vine stem decoration in inner and upper margins, green roundel at foot of page containing coat of arms (excised and repaired with blank paper), 3-line initial spaces with printed guides, some supplied in red, 4- to 7-line initials supplied in gold, early nineteenth-century binding by Charles Meyer (with his small pink ticket), coarse straight-grained green morocco over bevelled wooden boards, decorated in blind in imitation of a fifteenth-century binding, lacking initial blank and conjugate a10 (with text), extremities slightly rubbedPROVENANCEHamilton Palace library, sale in these rooms, 2 May 1884, lot 286, £2-19s., Quaritch; J.W. Pease, bookplate; Howard Pease, bookplate; sale at Hodgson's, 20 June 1958, lot 396, Maggs Bros, London, £90LITERATUREH 3290; GW 4457; BMC vii 1125; Bodleian XVc. B-366; Goff B735 (one copy)NOTESecond edition of Boccaccio's Fiammetta, first published in Padua in 1472. It is a prose romance giving an account of a young maid, Fiammetta, who is held by some to be Maria d'Aquino, with whom Boccaccio fell in love. Certainly the name occurs in various of his works, and in the Decameron Fiammetta tells a number of tales. The work was popular and translated into various languages: Amorous Fiammetta was the title of the English translation by B. Young published in 1587 (STC 3169).The press to which this book is attributed printed three other titles: Antonius de Rosellis De legitimationibus (H 13975, 58 leaves), Forma e regola di confessarsi (GW 7363, 2 copies), and Andrea da Barberino Guerino Il Meschino (H 8138; GW 1646, 202 leaves, Dresden copy only), a work of which a number of north Italian editions were printed in the 1470s and 1480s. Goff records one copy (Boston Public Library) of the Boccaccio from this press. Whilst the press is not definitely localisable, it is located in North Italy from the paper used in the books, and it is sometimes suggested that it may have been in the Venetian area; however, the products of the press are so rare that so far no note of provenance or purchase has been found in any of the books. It would appear from the works known to us that the press only reprinted texts which were popular and already in print, and produced very small editions, none of them dated.Of this Boccaccio only ten copies are listed by ISTC (GW in 1930 listed six, but there have been copies sold since 1930, e.g. in the Landau sale in our London rooms in 1948, the Bodleian copy bought at the Alvear sale in these rooms, March 1952, lot 58, and this copy sold in 1958; see below). The binding is by Charles Meyer who operated at 2 Hemming's Row, St Martin's Lane (from which he had moved by 1809), and who seems to have been, like many others, a German immigrant, and remained active certainly until 1819. He is styled 'Bookbinder to the Queen and Princesses'. There are two bindings by him amongst the Grenville books, according to Ellic Howe, and a book from George III's library, containing two tracts, one printed in 1804. A copy of Hamilton's Mémoires du comte de Grammont (s.a.) was bound by him (Ramsden pl. XX), and Edwards's 1793 edition of the same book is said to be bound by him (Maggs 1075, no. 242).

Description: GENEALOGIAE DEORUM GENTILIUM (DE MONTIBUS, SILVIS, FONTIBUS...) [WITH ADDITIONS BY DOMINICUS SILVESTER]. REGGIO EMILIA: BARTHOLOMAEUS AND LAURENTIUS DE BRUSCHIS, [6 OCTOBER] 1481 Chancery folio (288 x 199mm.), 356 leaves (with blank leaf &8; see below), 41 lines, Roman letter, 2- to 5-line initial spaces (some with printed guides), manuscript headlines (some cropped), early nineteenth-century straight-grained red morocco gilt by Storr of Grantham, with his ticket, spine gilt in compartments, gilt edges, eighteenth-century notes in Latin on front flyleaf, some early annotations, small stain on a6, extremities very slightly rubbedPROVENANCEJohn Hayford Thorold and Syston Park, bookplates, sale in these rooms, 13 December 1884, lot 307, £2-18s., Ridler; J.W. PeaseLITERATUREHC 3319; GW 4476; BMC vii 1085; Bodleian XVc. B-370; Goff B751NOTEBoccaccio in his Genealogiae deorum played the role of Hawthorne's Tanglewood Tales or Robert Graves to the Renaissance. This massive compilation, of which Boccaccio's own copy survives (Florence, Biblioteca Laurenziana, plut. LII 9) draws largely on the so-called Mythographus Vaticanus III, although much information came from the Calabrian Greek Leonzio Pilato, who had made a translation of the poems of Homer. It was widely printed and hugely popular, used by artists, poets (Chaucer was using it very soon after it was written) and scholars alike. It was a slip of the pen in this text which coined the word Demogorgon (a corruption of demiurgon) taken up by the poets and writers of Europe, and used by Milton in Paradise Lost.The total number of leaves is given as 355 in GW, BMC and the Bodleian catalogue, and it is variously stated that quire & has 7 leaves: &υ7 (GW), &υ6+1 (O) or &υ8-1 (BMC). However, in this copy &8 is quite clearly present and is a blank leaf, the previous text ending on &7verso. That there should be eight leaves in this quire is confirmed by the register, as well as by the signing of quire &. This edition has not been oversigned; indeed, the signing is exemplary. However, in the register, the last word given as part of quire cc, "uitdd" is in fact for the first leaf of quire dd, "uit" being transposed up a line next to the signature dd. The register also specifies a quire lettered [rum]υ6, which is actually signed [1]aaυ6. Apart from the detail of the blank leaf, the clearest collation is that given in BMC.

Description: RARE GIUNTINE EDITION OF BOCCACCIO'S AMETO: THE «CIVILIZING INFLUENCE OF LOVE»Boccaccio, Giovanni. Ameto. Florence: Giunti, 1529. [at colophon:] Impresso in Firenze: per gli heredi di Philippo de Giunta, 1529 adì XXIX di maggio. 8vo, 18th century vellum, ff. 102, [2]. Giuntine device on verso of final leaf. Dedication signed Bernardo di Giunta.Rare second revised Giuntine edition of Boccace's Ameto or, more properly, Commedia delle ninfe fiorentine («Comedy of the Florentine Nymphs"), a novel written in prose and verse about the civilizing influence of love.The novel was written in 1341 while Boccaccio was in Florence caring for his elderly father and separated from his beloved Fiammetta in Naples: the pastoral framework of this piece strongly influenced subsequent Arcadian literature.Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-1375) was an Italian author, poet, correspondent of Petrarch, and important Renaissance humanist. Boccaccio wrote a number of notable works, including the Decameron and «On Famous Women». As a poet who wrote in the Italian vernacular, Boccaccio is particularly noted for his realistic dialogue, which differed from that of his contemporaries, medieval writers who usually followed formulaic models for character and plot.References: Cnce, 6277.

Description: THE MOST IMPORTANT MYTHOLOGICAL MANUAL UNTIL THE LATE SIXTEENTH CENTURYBoccaccio, Giovanni. Della geneologia de gli dei di m. Giouanni Boccaccio libri quindeci. Ne' quali si tratta dell'origine, et discendenza di tutti gli dei de' gentili. Con la spositione de' sensi allegorici delle fauole & con la dichiaratione dell'historie appartenenti a detta materia. Tradotta già per m. Gioseppe Betussi. Et hora di nuouo con ogni diligenza reuista, et corretta. Aggiuntaui la vita di m. Giouanni Boccaccio, con le tauole de'capitoli & di tutte le cose degne di memoria. In Venetia : appresso la Compagnia de gli Vniti, 1585.4to (212x155 mm), near contemporary paperboards, colored paper at spine, ff. [20], 268. Text in italic type. Title vignette; initials; head- and tail pieces.Fine Venetian edition of Boccace's «Genealogy», a scholarly treatise on ancient Greek and Latin mythology, that remained the most important mythological manual until the late sixteenth century.Genealogia deorum gentilium, known in English as «On the Genealogy of the Gods of the Gentiles», is a mythography or encyclopedic compilation of the tangled family relationships of the classical pantheons of Ancient Greece and Rome, written in Latin prose and here translated by Giovanni Betussi. The work is defined by Encyclopedia Britannica «humanist in spirit and medieval in structure». According to the Preface Boccaccio undertook the project at the request of Hugh IV of Cyprus. The first version was completed in 1360, and he continuously corrected and revised the work until his death in 1374, so that various redactions of the works were copied in different manuscript traditions. In his lifetime and for two centuries afterwards it was considered his most important work.The full range of genealogies of the classical Gods are described in the fifteen books, drawing on the standard earlier works. According to Malcolm Bull, «Boccaccio does his best to make sense of the complex genealogy of the gods. But as he also allows for several gods of the same name, the result becomes enormously confusing. No subsequent mythographer followed his method of organizing material, yet Boccaccio's Genealogia retained its prestige and was to remain the most important mythological manual until the late sixteenth century». The Genealogia was unkindly described by Edward Gibbon as «a work, in that age, of stupendous erudition, and which he ostentatiously sprinkled with Greek characters and passages, to excite the wonder and applause of his more ignorant readers.Boccaccio was responsible for spreading the story, which he credited to Theodontius, that Demogorgon was the ancestor of all the heathen gods - based on a misspelled scholion to Statius, which had intended to claim ancestry for Plato's Demiurge. This gave rise to a literary and iconographic tradition lasting to John Milton and Shelley. From the earliest manuscripts, some believed to be Boccaccio autographs, diagrammatic family trees are included, which are thought to be the earliest non-Biblical uses of this type of graphic, which was already used in the form of the Jesse tree in art.The last two books of the work include a defence of poetry that is his latest and most extended discussion of the subject.Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-1375) was an Italian author, poet, correspondent of Petrarch, and important Renaissance humanist. Boccaccio wrote a number of notable works, including the Decameron and «On Famous Women». As a poet who wrote in the Italian vernacular, Boccaccio is particularly noted for his realistic dialogue, which differed from that of his contemporaries, medieval writers who usually followed formulaic models for character and plot.References: Adams, B-2176.

Type: 5:90G. Spaces for illustrations. 3- to 8-line initials in red and blue, full-page illuminated white-vine border and unidentified coat-of-arms on  2r, supplied in the early 20th century. (Lightly washed, a few residual waterstains, first few leaves a little soiled at lower margin, other leaves including  5, g4, h3, and h7 with repaired marginal tears, outer margin of K10 with slight blue stain, wormhole affecting two letters on PP11r.) Early 20th-century vellum, spine titled and dated in gilt. Seventh edition, the first to include Boccaccio's life of the poet. Following the death of his brother, Johannes, Vindelinus de Spira produced as many as fifty or sixty books in a period of less than three years between 1470 and 1472. However, he then appears to have become one of the victims of over production, his material passing into the hands of two compatriots, Johannes de Colonia and Johannes Manthen. At the very end of 1476, he set up a second press, from which this critical edition of Dante was one of the few productions, the press lasting only a few months before Vindelinus again disappears from view. The narrow length of the columns in the Dante led him to make free use of the hyphen throughout his book. In the text, the commentary is erroneously credited to Benvenuto d'Imola. H 5942; GW 7964; BMC V, 248 (IB. 20577); IGI 358; Goff D-27.
