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: 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. CNCE, 6383. OCLC, 123211007.

Description: Boccaccio Giovanni Genealogiae deorum French De la genealogie des dieux Paris Antoine Verard, 9 February 1498/99. Super-Median F'. First edition in French an exceptionally large and fresh copy The majority of the woodcuts are from the set Verard commissioned for his French version of Ovid's Metamorphoses, La Bible des poetes, 1 March 1493 94 macfarlane 31 HC 12165 , which in turn was based on the set in Colard Mansions edition of the same verse Bruges May 1484 goff 0-184 . No attention has been given in bibliographical literature to the sizes and formats of Verard's publications but their combination of vernacular texts and often luxury issue makes them an especially interesting group an interest complicated by the fact that so many copies have been rebound several times over with smooth gilt edges leaving them much smaller than their natural size Very few copies of any Verard publication can bring us closer to the condition of his books as they left the printing shop than the present one Although the volume is sturdily sewn on three split tawed thongs the pasteboard covers suggest an interim binding The edges were only slightly shaved deckle is present irregularly at both the upper and lower margins of many scattered sheets they are therefore very close to original size This size is larger than that of standard Median sheets but notably smaller than Royal and may be seen therefore as 'Super-Median." Verard seems to have used the same format for at least one other edition the Boethius Consolation de philosophic of 19 August 1494 macfarlane 37 Goff B-814 . Of the present edition the Morgan Library copy measures 330 x 237mm the Fairfax Murray copy very fine large 320 x 230mm Types 3*:115B text 6 76C marginalia Double column 45 lines headline. lombards as initials initial spaces irregularly with guides Illustration 13 page size woodcuts 10 blocks 3 repeats and 31 column width woodcuts 19 blocks 12 repeats 360 x 249mm Unrubricated.

OS 213 1961 H. P. Kraus Goff B 755; HC 3325 Gw 4481 Claudin 11 476-77 Fairfax Murray French 47 Macfarlane 56 Arnim 68 Nb the first quire and sheet b2 are in original settings not the reprints identified by Gw The woodblocks their repetitions, and their correspondences to the Colard Mansion illustrations are described in full detail by Arnim. Arnim describes the binding as being early leather over new paste boards but the pasteboards are contemporary with the leather A wormholes in the front cover extends to the first leaf of the book but is not present in the 17th-century flyleaf.
