Proviene del libro Liber Chronicarum o también conocido como Nuremberg Chronicle, fue editado en latín y aleman en el mismo año de 1493. Es una historia del mundo desde su creación hasta 1493, dividiendo la historia en seis eras: desde la creación hasta Noé, de Noé a Abraham, desde Abraham hasta David, de David a la cautividad en Babilonia, desde el cautiverio en Babilonia hasta el nacimiento de Cristo y desde el nacimiento de Cristo hasta el fin del mundo o 1493. Es uno de los mejores libros ilustrados del siglo XV, con ilustraciones de escenas bíblicas, las principales ciudades, personajes de los mitos y las fábulas, las tablas genealógicas de los emperadores, reyes y papas, así como mapas. Los grabados en madera son de Michael Wolgemut (Profesor de Alberto Durero), y su hijastro Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wolgemut era el tutor de Alberto Durero, entre 1486-1490, y estudios recientes han demostrado que Alberto Durero también ha colaborado ya que algunos de los cortes tienen un parecido muy cercano a las ilustraciones del Apocalipsis. La impresión se llevó a cabo bajo la supervisión del gran erudito de la impresora Koberger Antón, cuya impresión se hicieron famosos en toda Europa.

Description: CD - Aguilera, Carmen (Estudio). Códice Cospi. Puebla: Gobierno del Estado de Puebla / Centro Regional de Puebla / INAH / SEP, 1988. Calendario Messicano 4093. Texto: 8o. marquilla apaisado, 115 p. Encuadernado en pasta dura. Con reproducción facsimilar del códice, con pastas duras. Piezas: 2. En estuche. El Codex, también conocido como Codex Cospianus, Codice Cospiano, Códice de Bolonia es un libro que pertenece a un grupo de cinco manuscritos pictóricos conocidos como el grupo Borgia. La cubierta, que data del Siglo XVII muestra una inscripción que indica que el códice fue dado como un regalo de Navidad para Ferdinando Cospi por Valerio Zani , en 1665. Nada se sabe de la historia antes de esta fecha. La primera mención del códice fue hecha por Lorenzo Legati en su catálogo del Museo Cospiano. La primera edición del manuscrito fue hecha por Edward King , Lord Kingsborough, en 1831, litografiada de trazados hechos por Agli. El manuscrito está bien conservado, está pintado en piel de venado y protegido por dos portadas del siglo 17, que probablemente fueron hechas para reemplazar las antiguos tapas de madera. El estilo del arte del Códice Cospi tiene similitudes con el estilo de las pinturas en la cerámica de Nochistlán en la región Mixteca Alta del suroeste de México; pero también hay semejanzas con el estilo de Cholula -Tlaxcala. El lado anverso consta de tres secciones en la que los datos de calendario se enlazan con secuencias de imágenes. Estos mecanismos se utilizaron para fines adivinatorios. En el reverso, que en un principio había sido dejado en blanco, once rituales fueron representados por la mano de otro pintor. Los rituales de este tipo se han conservado hasta la época moderna, a través de gran mezcla con fenómenos de aculturación.

Arthur James Balfour

Lot 346: Arthur James Balfour

by RR Auction

August 13, 2014, 6:00 PM EST

Amherst, NH, USA

Estimated Price: $900 - $1,100

Description: TLS, one page, 6.75 x 8.75, personal letterhead, September 17, 1914. Letter to lexicographer Frank H. Vizetelly. In part: "I do not think that I have used the word Armageddon in reference to British domestic Politics. For many years the observers of Continental Politics and Students of German ideals have foreseen the possibility of some world catastrophe such as that which has now occurred; and doubtless many in this connection have made use of the word 'Armageddon.' Very likely I have been among their number." In fine condition, with unobtrusive staple holes to the top. Although the 'Armageddon' refers to the place where the final battle will be fought between the forces of good and evil, as proclaimed in the Bible, it had taken on new meaning with the advent of World War I earlier in 1914. The entry for 'Armageddon' in the dictionary released by Funk & Wagnalls, prepared under Vizetelly's supervision, concludes with, 'the term has been applied to any great conflict or slaughter.' It is especially interesting to note that Balfour believed in the Zionist cause of establishing a home for the Jewish people in Palestine, which is where the biblical Armageddon is located; it was World War I that significantly shaped the modern Middle East, with the Balfour Declaration to establish Palestine as a homeland for the Jewish people being incorporated into the Treaty of Sevres at the conclusion of the war.

Estimated Price: $500 - $750

Description: Breviary for the ''Third Sunday After Easter'' circa 1175-1200, and including a homily by the Venerable Bede and a tract by Saint Augustine on Saint John. Also known in the Roman Catholic church as ''Jubilate Sunday'' because in the liturgy, the first line of the introit for that day's mass is ''Jubilate Deo omnis terra'', or ''Shout with joy to God, all the earth'' from Psalm 66 (65). Vellum leaf has 27 lines printed on two columns in brown Romanesque script, with rubrics in red. Decorated with six larger initials, each in red with light blue pen decorations. Also with eleven smaller initials, again in red and blues. Some omissions exist in the text that are added to margins in darker ink from a contemporary hand, identifiable by an inverted red ''v'', as a well as a few corrections within text in two spots. Includes a ''musical neum'' above ''Alleluia'' in line 12 of the right column of verso. 11.25'' x 17.25 leaf has been removed from original breviary and was possibly used as a wrapper for a parochial register. Dampstaining and foxing throughout, particularly to upper right corner, as well as an uneven right edge. Very good condition considering age.

Following his former predecessors in going against apostasy and heresy, Clemens VIII asks the bishop, in order to better strengthen the faith of the newly converted, to enforce greater punishments upon them, and to cut off the lethal cult at its roots, by even appointing more inquisitors, and converting the moors, their children, and nephews, by oath and confirmation...''

George Orwell

Lot 664: George Orwell

by RR Auction

August 13, 2014, 6:00 PM EST

Amherst, NH, USA

Estimated Price: $8,000 - $12,000

Description: TLS signed "Geo. Orwell," one page, 8 x 10, April 27, 1946. Letter to Mr. Mackerness. In part: "I have never read Darwin's Autobiography. The broadcast you listened to was based on 'The Voyage of a Naturalist' and on the recent book 'Charles Darwin and the Voyage of the Beagle' which was edited by Lady Barlow (Darwin's grand-daughter, I think), and which supplemented Darwin's own book by quoting his letters, diaries etc., and gave a good deal of information about Captain Fitzroy. I am afraid I have never read Fitzroy's narrative of the voyage either.The argument between Darwin and Fitzroy on slavery was based pretty closely on the two books. In his own narrative Darwin expresses a number of times his horror of slavery and recounts various illustrative incidents, eg. that of the Negro who expected Darwin to strike him. Darwin does not mention that he quarrelled with Fitzroy about this, but it comes out in Lady Barlow's book. Darwin saying 'So much the worse for the Scriptures' was my invention, but I should think he might have said it, and Fitzroy would have been pretty sure to bring forward the Scriptural argument. All the bits of dialogue in the broadcast were based on some or other passage in these two books. The bit where Darwin almost formulates the theory of natural selection was based on Chapter VIII of the 'Voyage.' Unfortunately they cut my script down a bit (this always happens to allow for the insertion of music) and left out a passage in which I related the growth of his opinions to the happenings on the voyage.I do not know why I have never read Darwin's Autobiography. I have read most of his published work including his book on earthworms which fascinated me years ago. He seems to me a very sincere and lovable person." Intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature) and a repaired tear to the left edge (affecting one letter of the text), otherwise fine condition.During the 1940s and 1950s the BBC produced a series known as 'Imaginary Conversations,' which were radio broadcasts of scripted dramatized discussions between historical figures on opposite sides of well-known disagreements. Orwell wrote the script for one of these, which focused on Darwin's thoughts versus those of the captain of the HMS Beagle, Robert FitzRoy. Shortly after Darwin published On the Origin of Species came the now-famous '1860 Oxford Evolution Debate,' which pitted prominent British scientists and religious figures against each other in heated debate over the idea of evolution. FitzRoy was a participant in the discussion on the anti-evolutionist side, and is remembered for denouncing Darwin's book while lifting an immense Bible over his head, solemnly imploring the audience to believe God rather than man-likely the inspiration for Orwell's invented dialogue regarding the Scriptures. An extremely rare letter by the important English writer whose fiction generally served as a proxy for political debate-he had just published the allegorical Animal Farm in 1945-and the script discussed here was no exception. A truly extraordinary piece.
