This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generalions on library shelves before il was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

Il has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

A Catalogue of Books produced by the 
earliest typographers in- all countries, 
arranged so as to illustrate the history of 
the origin and development of the Art 
of Printing ; as well as the publications 
of the famous Aldine, Giunta, and Elzevir 
Presses; preceded by some examples of 
prm-typographical Printing, 


and Early Metal Engravings with 

Xylography, — a term denoting that phase of wood-engraving in 
whjch cevhuii in-iriptions or portions of text were cut upon the block 
in addition to the pictorial design, — must have come into existence about 
tin- end of the fourteenth century. It seems to have reached its most 
flourishing period bboai tin- viur 1450, and to have been chiefly cultivated 
in the Rhine-lands. It had probably a continued existence in Germany 
and Holland till near 1480: we find a belated Italian specimen in 1509. 

13 BECKKR (Rnd. Zach.) Holzschnitte alter deutscher Meister . . 
Gravures en bois des anciens Maitres allemands tirces des 
punches originales recueillies par Jean Albert de Derschau, 
avec un discours sur la nature et l'histoiro de la Gravnre en 
bois, 3 parts in 1 vol. imp. folio, 213 engravings, some very large 
and folded, printed from the original blocks of the fifteenth and 
limteenth centuries; hf. red morocco extra, £10. I 1 

Qatha, 1808-1 ij 

An incomparably precioos collection, including aereral xylogmpliic 
impres-ioiu nail rude engraving* which belong lo the very beginning of the 
fifteenth century; and ranging onward to the finest achievements of the great 
nitist- of the -ixiecnth centnry. As all these arc from the original wood 
block.*, Dcrschau's collection must rank infinitely higher than all the books of 
modern facsimiles or imitation". 



35944 Designs from Metal Plates, printed at Hildesheim about 

A.D. 1400, and illuminated by a contemporary hand; contained in 
the following MS.: 


SHElMENSis), l2mo. MS. on vellum written on 2C(i leaves, with 
9 Miniature-Initials and '1 l-injer separate Miniatures printed 
from loft metal and then coloured and gilt by the scribe ; one of 
these miniatures bearing the words Ave Maria impressed in pale 
ink ; purple morocco, gilt edges, with chased silver-gilt clasp ; 
lettered Breviarium Romanum, £45. 

(Hildesheim about A.D. 1400) 
The MS. and its general feature* apeak for themselves as to the dote of 
this volume ; the place is indicated by the names of St Gottbard and 8t. 
Bemhard, Bishops of Hildesheim in the eleventh century, which appear in red 
letter in the calendar, nnd which are also in the Litany. There are other 
nomes of less prominence which also indicate the region in which the book was 
executed ; and on the final blank leaves there are Bomc prayers (now nearly 
effaced) in a fifteenth-century hand, the language of which is low Saxon, 
approximating to the Westpbalian dialect. As a specimen, the following 
few fragmentary words will serve, — " Holp mi lcno herre so da ... an tnyne 
leuende dat ik diner heligc gcselle mute . . . also dine . . sellescap besitte." 
These additions arc in the same hand as the vellum leaves inserted here and 
there giving the music of the services, and were written about 1450. 

35945 Gesciiiedems van het heylighe Cruvs; or tho History of the 

Holy Cross, reproduced in facsimile from the original edition 
printed by J. Veldener in 1483, text and engravings by J. Ph. 
Berjean, sm. 4to. (published at £1. 5s), bds. 20s 4863 

Introduction, 12 pp. History of the Holy Cross, text (in modern type) 
with illustrative extracts from the Golden Legend and ancient French ilss. 
60 pp. Tho facsimile, 64 woodcuts ou 33 leaves, with text at foot 

The lost blockbook which Veldener utilized by cutting the eleven blocks 
(liearing 64 designs) iuto 64 separate pieces, and then printing them as a book 
with a Dutch text (instead of tho original Latin) at the foot of each picture 
must have been Dutch and probably thirty years older than the date of 
Veldener's production at Culenborch in 1483. 
35945 # Ars Moriendi (editio princeps, circ. 1450) a reproduction of the 
copy in the British Museum, edited by W. Harry Ry lands, with 
an introduction by George Bullen, 4to. pp. viii and 22, followed 
by a perfect facsimile of the unique blockbook consisting of 11 ©p. 
of illustrations and 13 ]>p. tj test printed inbrown ink; cloth, 14* 

Holbein Society, 1881 

The original was bought for the British Museum at Weigel's sale for the 
sum of £1072. It is the only extant copy of the first xylograpbie edition 
of tho Ars Moriendi, and is perhaps artistically the finest of all the block- 
books. Mr. Wcigcl and Mr. Duller agree in referring it to Cologne about 
1450 ; there can be no doubt about the place of impression, but tho date may 
turn out to be a little later. 

35946 SPECULUM HUMANE SALVATIONIS : le plus anci. n 

Monument de la Xylogrnphio ct do la Typographic lvunies, 
rcproduit en facsimile avee introduction historique ct biblio- 
graphique, par J. P. Berjeau, impl. 4to. including facsimiles of 
the 116 u-oodeuts (published at £4. 4s), cloth, £ 2. 10* 18C1 

Title and Introduction, 72 pp. The Sjicculum in modern t)pe, 33 pp. 
The Speculum, ia facsimils, 63 leaves printed on one side, and including 116 
distinct designs, on Dutch-made paper of precisely the same texture and tint 
a.' the original. Only 166 copies wire printed, and the book is now out of 



" I'his block-book, supposed lo have been executed nboul 1435, is of the 
greatest interest in 1 lie history of the origin of typography, as well as of 
popular education. It il ■ Pictorial Scripture, History, that is to say a picture 
of a oertain subject from the Old or New Testament is given, with a more or 
less brief account in black letter underneath it, of the personages or scener 
intended. Each page hat a double subject. As regards the drawing we hold 
it to bo, though rmle, very artistic. There is a decided character and an 
expression in the figures that are nltnost worthy of Albert Duror. Nothing 
is feeble, though much il quint The draperies are simple and effective, 
and there is no crowding of figures, but a judicious grouping of from two to 
fire personages in each, with backgrounds of trees, hills or houses, as in the 
works of the early Musters." -See Ilome and Foreign Review, April, 1863. 
■7 BIBLIA PAUPERTJM. A beautiful Manuscript Facsimile of 
the Biblin Patiperum, with all tho Illustrations, carefully 
executed by Leclabart, roy. 4to. modern invented title, and 
it) leaves of faotimxlei bound in bright old French red men 
pill edai .--. by D, rome, £8. 8* _ (? 1450-1770) 

This, like the famous Speculnm, is doubtless of Dutch origin and not much 
curlior than the middle of the fifteenth Century. Tho facsimile is apparently 
Blade from (ho edition which usually ranks as second. 

35948 LIFE OF CHRIST in engraved designs, by B a r- 


THOLOMBU8, a Suabian artist: A valuable series 
op six unique early engravings executed about 
///•■ year 1470, in the style known in England as 
•■ dotted /ihitcs" in. France as " la maniere cribh'e," 
ami in (lermany as " Schroltbl "utter ;" — -partly tinted \ 
tip mounted on cardboard, and bound in a volume, 
4to. morocco extra, £105. 

The second of these remarkable engravings is that which 
ives the artist's name. He was perhaps Bartholomous Zeit- 
blom of Ulm, described by Nagler as " einer der Hauptmeister 
ilcr Sclnviiliischen Schule," who was at work ns early as 1468, 
but who is best known as a painter, about 1490. 

1. Christ and tho Woman of Samaria. Around the border 
of the well, his words are given as an inscription (white on 
black ground) " Wyp gip mir drinck." 

2. The Raising of Lazarus. At the bottom, on a black 
ground, is the inscription in white " Bartholomeus," which can 
only mean the name of the artist. 

3. Christ riding on an ass into Jerusalem. 

4. Expulsion of the money-changers from the Temple. 
The above four are smaller than the following two, being 

impressed in pairs on the single leaves; but all are of one time 
and from one hand. 

5. The Flagellation. Christ attached to a column in the 
middle, nnd so placed that his body is full in front of the 

rt&tor. There arc three sconrgers : ono on the left strikes 
Him with a bundle of twigs, one on the right clutches Him by 
hair and flogs Him with a whip. Tho third, kneeling in 
i. is fastening his rods with a thong. 

6. Christ appears to Magdalen in the garden. She kneels, 
with the pot of ointment in her right hand, its cover in her left.

These rude verses (of which several faulty translation, 
have appeared) are found at the end of " Justiuiani Institu- 
tiones," printed by Schoeffer in 1468. They were written, as is 
evident, by Johnnn Brunuen (Joannes Fons, Joannes de Fonte), 
the corrector and reader of Schoffer's press, who also wrote the 
metrical Latin Grammar which SohSffsr had printed in 1466. 
They contain a brief notice of five persons who continuously 
formed or worked the first printing-establishment in the world ; 
namely, and in this succession, John the first of Maintz, John 
the second (Fust), Peter (Scbuffer), Francis the compositor, 
and (John Brunuen) the reader. Therefore the fact, on which 
Mr. LleSsols dwells, that Schoffer's house was not the identical 
building in which Guttcnberg had first worked, was manifestly 
one of no importance in the eyes of Bruunen, and consequently 
the words in his Grammar (second edition, 1468) me downs 
genuit unde caragma venit are simply a loose form of expression, 
on which no argument can be based. — The above testimony as 
to the inventor of printing only needs to bo supplemented and 
completed by the letter of Fichet to Gaguin which forms a 
preliminary to the edition of Gaspariuus Porgamensis printed 
at Paris in 1470. There it is stated by the Prior of the Sor- 
bonne that " John who styles himself Gutenberg and who 
dwells near Maintz " had invented the art of reproducing books 
by little metal types of letters, according to the information 
given him by the three Germans who had come to Paris to 
introduce the same art into that city. — The next special evidence 
on this point appeared in 1474 in the Chronicle published by 
Lignaraine at Rome in 1474 ; and a confirmation from Mentz 
itself, from the Schoeffer press in 1505, will be found in the 
German Livy described infra.

In spite of the extraordinary interest which attaches to the 

Mttzarino Bible, Sehoeffer's Psalter, and the Durandus — the 

Catholicon is not excelled by any of them as an important 

document in tbe early history of Printing. Those three works 

• may have all been pradnCM in one establishment by Peter 

Srhoeffer between 1455 and 145'J, as Mr. Hessels concludes; 

this can only be considered the production of the other printer, 

the " John of Mentz called Gutouberg " whom wo have long 

heard of as the inventor of the Art. 

The language of the colophon in the Catholicon, so far as 
it relates to the new art nnd the glory of the city of Mentz, is 
strikingly moro emphatic, more original, and more stamped 
with the tokens of priority than any of the similar statements 
made in Sehoeffer's colophons.

history of typography, seeing that it is in the exact type of the 

famous Catholicon and that only three books altogether (besides 

the Catholicon) can be so specified.

The second book printed with a date ; the grandest work 
ever produced by typography ; and one of the rarest of the early 
monuments of Printing. 

In the two Psalters (one dated 1457, the other as above 
1459) Schoeffer achieved a work which amply justiGed the 
I "ast translated on a preceding page. In Jackson and Chatto's 
Wood-Engraving (p. 201) it is very justly stated that " the 
large initial letters engraved on wood and printed in red and 
blue ink, are the most beautiful specimens of this kind of 
ornament which the united efforts of the wood engraver and the 
pressman have produced. They have been imitated in modern 
times, but not excelled. As they are the first letters in point of 
time printed with two colours so are they likely to continue the 
first in point of excellence." — In designating the above volume 
as the grandest work ever produced by typography, I naturally 
treat the two Psalters of 1457 and 1459 as substantially the 
same book ; of which there are now in existence 21 copies all 
varying from each other like different editions, but of which 
nine have a colophon dated 1457 and twelve a colophon dated 
1459. In the copies with the latter date, the Athamisiun (.'reed 
is given, which does not appear in those of 1457, and the colo- 
phon affords a variation in the name and description of one of 
the printers. In the 1457 colophon, he is simply I'rin'i Qchoffar 
(/.. Oi rufzhi nn, in I lmt of 1459 he is (as he probably considered 
more correct) Petri Bchcifh tr t U genu' heym cliricu. 

The abovo copy iB not only splendidly fine in preservation ; 
it is also perfect. Most copies qnu to be imperfect, as 
the British Museum copy, and the Windsor copy, of the 1457 


liter. — The Mazarine Uiblo is comparatively a common book 
liv (lie side of I he Psalter j several copies of the former have 
been sold during tin' liist twenty years, while this is the only 
copy of the Psalter which has turned up for the bettor part of a 
century. The great public libraries have absorbed nearly all 
that remain of the few copies originally printed by Schoffer. It 
H probable that he never produced more than fourteen or 
fifteen examples'of each of the two kinds. — The two Psalters are 
differentiated thus, — that one is the service-book of the Church 
of Maintz, and the other the service-book of the Benedictine 
monastery of St. James at Maintz ; the varying use being shown 
in the pray e re which sneered the Psalter.

Jlcniz, Joannes ScJioejfer, 1523 

This volume is one of the documents upon which the history 
of Printing is based. The dedication to the Emperor Maxi- 
milian ends with the following statement relating to Mentz : — 

In which town, also, the wondrous art of Print iinj was 
originally invented, firstly by the ingenious Johann Guttenbergk, 
1450 years as it is counted from the birth of our lord Christ; and 
(hereafter improved aiul made permanent by the diligence, cost, 
und labour of John Faust and Peter Srhoffer at Mentz, etc. 

This statement, emanating perhaps from Ivo Wittig, but 
ovidontly sanctioned if not composed by the printer, has a 

inol value, as showing that, in 1505, Johann Schoffer, the 
sun of Peter Schoffer and the grandson of Fust, was not under 
tlic influence of any family tradition which could invalidate 
the priority of Guttenberg. It was first printed in that year, 
1505, a fact which must not be forgotten in connexion with the 
iipi" :\nince of quite dissimilar statements in other Schoffer- 
books from 1515 onwards.

These two works are partly in ll.c peculiar backward-leaning sc-mi- 
Gothic in which the Latin Bible was printed by Mcntelio, which bears in 
one copy a rnbricntion dated 1460-61. 

The two preliminary leaves of the Augustine are a notice by the editor 
concerning his Inbonrs to obtain n corrected text of a treatise so useful to the 
men of his own order — he was u Dominican or preachiug monk. He had 
examined all the copies that were to be found in Heidelberg, S]>eyer, Worms, 
and Strassbnrg, so as to make his own a perfect model of correctness -, and 
next came the duly of multiplying examples for his fellow monks. Wherefore, 
since I judged that by no other mode or means could this be effected, I persuaded 
in every way the discreet man John Mcntelin, citizen of Strassburg, master of 
the printing art, that he should take upon himself the burden and labour of 
muliijlying (Am little book by the method of Printing, with my copy Acid 
before his eyes. Snch are his words turned into English, and this senteuce 
has served lo identify several noteless books as printed by Mcntelin. 

An identical statement, bnt with the name altered to Johann Fust, 
appears in the edition printed at Mcntz by the latter in 1465, usually hitherto 
considered to be the first ; but Mr. Madden has conclusively settled the ques- 
tion of priority in favonr of Meutelin.

Excessively rare, and by many considered the first edition, as Lord 
Spencer's copy bears an inscription by the illuminator, J. Ba'mler, dating his 
work 1468. 

The text is in the tame type as the two-volnme Latin Bible of 1460; 
the commentary is in the typo which Mcnlelin used for his German Bible.

This very rare book is in the same type as the Latin Bible printed by

1469. There is a copy in the Bibliothequo Nationale, which was bound in 
that year by Johann Rychcnbach, of Gcrslingcn ; and the volume BIM 
therefore have been produced by Mcntelin some time between 1459 and 1469, 
but probably nearer to the latter date- say 1467 or 1468. A considcralion of 
the text appears to show that it preceded the edition of Rome, 1468.

no certain date to be assigned to our Adrianus Cartliusiensis, we cannot

example of this style of printing. There are in all forty-seven maps, the lir.-t 
of which is printed in five colours, and the others more or less tinted by hand 
The 29th map is entitled, " I )rbis typns universalis juxta Hydrographorum 
tradiiionem ; " in this are marked the islands of " Isabella. " and " .Npagnolla " 
and a part of the mainland of the continent of America. The 30th map, 
entitled '• Tabula in: hi: sotb," is tho famous map known as the "Carte de 
1'Aniiinl," which along with the Orbis Typus that precedes it, was undoubtedly 
the work of Amerigo Vespucci, in 1604, when he had just quitted hia employ- 
ment as captain or vice-admiral in the Portuguese service, and was looking for 
BM position in that of Spain.

are the production of Urs Graf, who was then working iu Zurich or Basel. 

Many euch works as this, creditable alike typographically and artistically, 
were produced in Strassburg while Alsatia was still an independent princedom 
of the Kmpire, but from the time when it lost its German nationality — till now 
— it seems also to have lost its vitality as a home of art and literature.

The names found in the original Kalila and Dimna have tan transformed 

(through the deficiencies of Oriental alphabets) from Nnshirvan to Anastres 

Tastri and fmm Bidpai to Sendebar. The similarity of many of the stories to 

M in the "Seven Wise Masters" which is properly called the book of 

.bud, and this corruption of the name of Bidpai (which is easily accounted 

for in the transit from Arabic or Persian through llebrow to Latin Letters) 

have frequently caused the two books to be confounded.

This is perhaps the second work produced by the printer whose peculiar 
letter It has occasioned so much discussion. The water-mark is sometimes 
the bull's head, sometimes the rose, and sometimes different from both of these 
but not made out. — It is quito certain thnt Mcutelin was not the printer, but 
it is still possible that the volume may hare been printed at Strassbnrg, although 
the tendency is growing to accept Mr. Madden 's theory that the Brothers of 
Common Life at Cologne produced all the It-books.

This book is the original of the " Book of Gode Manors " wbidi was 

printed by Caxton in 1487, in a version made by himself from the French 

translation of the text. The proper name of Jacobus Magnus was Jacques 

Legrand ; he wae a native of Tonlouse. The manuscript index referred to 

above is on 8 leaves of the same paper as was used by the printer. Fr. 

Ilciuricua of I.iccli-tal must therefore have lived in the neighbourhood of the 

place of impression.

Madden holds that the It-books were printed by Jcnson at the Monastery of 

Wcidonlach between 1 102 and 1169, in which latter year he went to Venice. 

They are both on the same paper, of which the water-mark is tho Gothic y 

Mirinoanted by a star ; which indicates tho vicinity of the Low Countries.

are MS. xignnturcs, probably of tlio same date as the impression. — On the 
blank leaf at the beginning is a contemporary signature or note " Per 
1 Inns to stutg " — which might tempt a reader to regard it as the printer's 
name. — This book is evidently of later date than tho two preceding volumes, 
and indicates a greater technical skill in tho printer. Strange to say, the 
poper-mark throughout is the Cross-keys.

—This edition is described in the Bibl. Spencer. I 353 j by Brunei II 31 ; 
and by Panzer IV 112 ; but none of these bibliographers divined who was the 
typographer. Graesse however guessed rightly: the book is in exactly the 
same type as the .Bn«os Sylviut and the Ovidii Vetala which follow. — At the 
end of the Rhetorical in this volume, two letters of vKncas .Sylvius are printed ; 
one of which, addressed to Ileiurich Count of Lupffen, contains an interesting 
sketch of the various kinds of book-collectors. The real object of the letter 
was to obtain a loan of the MSS. of Terence, of CMA de Arte Amandi, Amoris 
rtmtdio, and Triitia, ami of Hieronymus in Epislolis, which Count Lupffen 
possessed ; as ^Eneas Sylvius was desirous of re-perusing those old friends 
now that Easter is nigh and tltat I shall be able to feed on meat and get rid of 
fish, potherbs, and oil.

arabesque border of leaves and flowers enclosing the portrait of 
^Esop on leaf 1, and the first page of text on leaf 2.

Vfrt rarr. One of tho grandest typographical productions of tho 
fifteenth century, well and regularly printed on very thick nod strong |iaprr. 
The nnmher of leaves is 468, inclusive of one blank leaf at the beginning. 
niul the book is divided into two exactly even sections or Tolnmes of 
leaves each foot, as Brunei says, 833 and 235). This edition may have 
preceded the issue of the Rodt-Richel Biblo in two volumes, which i- unify 
MUrtbcd to 1473. far the following reason. Tho second volume of that book 
(printed by Kichel to complete tho unfinished work of Rodt), corresponds in 
contents and in types exactly to tho second volume of this, but consist* of 116 
loam with 48 lines per column ; while Vol. II gf the Kichel Bible consi 
•j'. I le w with 48 linos per column. As we know very well that, amongst all 
the curly printers, a greater compression of type and a diminished number of 
pages were always distinguishing mirks of reimpression, there arises a §0 

J reliability that the Kichel Bible is older than tho second volume of tho B 
[ichel Bible. It is true that the date 1475 is added in some copies at the 
of Cm Apocalypse in the Kichel Bible: n circumstance to which many parallels 
can I* found in ancient as well as modem days, when publishers reissued the 
unsold copies of their liooks. — Altogether, tho conclusion we may draw is this. 
thiil l;..ili and Kii-licl were two rival printers in Basel, about the year 1470; 
that each was producing a Bible ; that Rodt died when he bad only printed 
hi* first volume; that Richel produced his complete Bible about 1473(reiataed 
Inter with the date 1475 added); and thai he took up Rodt's stock and coro- 
j 1 1 1- 1 u<J Kodt's Bible by reprinting his own second volume in a more compressed 
form about 1475. This is contrary to the usual opinion of tho bibliographers, 
who hold that Kichel was Kodt's partnor, that he printed Vol. II of 0m 
Km It- Richel Bible in 1473; and that he produced his own Bible (the present 
article) about 1475.

certainly the correct one, as it will be shown below that the edition dated 1615 
is infallibly later than this.

[Basilece] J. 13. [Bergman de O/pe], 1494 

This little volume was an appropriate conjunctive record of 
the two great contemporary events on which the greatness and 
glory of Spain were founded — namely, the destruction of tho 
Moorish power by the capture of Granada, and the discovery of 
i lie New World by Columbus, — both signalising the year 1 
The first work is a dramatic reprosontation of the siege, 
written by Carolus VerarduB, one of tho Pope's chamberl 
and produced on a private stage in the palace of Cardinal Riario 
immediately after the announcement in Rome of the trtumph of 
Ferdinand and Isabel. The other, which is the Latin version of 
the famous letter of Columbus dated from Lisbon on the 14th of 
-March, 14'.l3, on his return from his first voyage to the ln> 
had already been printed several times in separate form in 1 

There is a preliminary poem addressed to King Ferdinand 



by Sebastian liraiit on tho couqu&st of Granada, in which the 
following linos occur — 

O patria, o fcolix Germania, si tibi reges 
Aut lortuna pares nut dens ipse daret, 
Credo L'i[uidum cunctus nostri sub legibus orbis 
Jamdudmn forot, et clymmata t-nncta soli. 
— but ho proceeds to soften tho implied charge against tho 
Emperor Maximilian.

A vr ry precious copy, the engravings piintcd on tbc two inner-face* of 
each folded leaf, the backs being left blank, and ihos showing not inly linw 
tlie impressions were worked by Dure, bnt also that the first or title-leaf 
(containing the seated and weeping fignro of t hiistj usually found in copies 
was not portion of the original designs, bnt added as an nflcrthonght. m the 
tir-t iiinliiiice without, and finally with a text. (A facsimile of the title-leaf 
In- longing to that third issue is added here so as to serve as n frontispiece, bnt 
it is not really necessary.) The impressions are wonderfully fine and clear ; — 


in fact, it would be impossible lo find another copy like this. One circumstance 
to be remarked is, that in the picture of the expulsion from Paradise, tlio 
backbone of Eve ii indicated by a vertical lino which is cut by short erojs- 
.'trokas. This very rare stale is held by Nnglcr and others to prove that the 
block was engraved a second time, the original one (as printed hero) having 
been lost, or for some reason rejected ; as the cross-hatching docs not appear 
in any issue subsequent to this first, from the edition with text of 16 ID down 
to our own time. In the above volume two engravings by Wolfgang Hauler 
or Huber (about 1520) are added which represent the Circumcision and the 
Presentation in tfie Temple, two snbjects not treated by Diircr in his pictnres 
of the Little Passion.

First and rarest, edition of this famons metrical Romance 
of Chivalry written by Pfintzing to record the chivalrous deeds 
of his Sovereign Maximilian the First, who himself is supposed 
to have furnished the materials to be turned into rhyme. 

The rarity of this first edition is little suspected by moat 
people, but is plainly proved by the fact tlmt t lie Holbein 
Society was obliged to use the Augspurg edition of 1519 as the 
original of the facsimile reproduction.

Very few copies were produced of this highly interesting Wedding-Dance 
designed by the artist of the celebrated Teterdannck of 1617. The original* 
are supposed to have been executed about 1530, probably at Niirnberg, since 
the costnmes depicted are chiefly of that city ; but they might with equal 
justice be referred to an earlier date. The male and female costnme is 
represented with great spirit, and deserves the belt attention of art students.

This extremely roro book was produced by the first printer of Speyer, not

volume (a — k). It seems certain that he was not Peter Drach who is usually 

styled the prototypogrnpher of that city.

Without a special experience of this book, in its various editions, no one 
could appreciate its extraordinary rarity in a perfect Btote. The folding 
illustrations are ordinarily defective in some point or other ; the view of Venice 
almost certainly truncated at one or the other end ; nnd, as for the map of ihe 
Holy Land, to have seen it in its full length (49 inches by lit) is a chance 
that but few collectors have enjoyed.

The above indication of place and date arc extracted from the prologue. 

A volume described as " d'chk babetE extbEme " by Brunei, who 
fnrther observes, " mat* c» qui U rend surUrnt remari7ini6le, e'ett Vateetsivt 
abturdiU do gravura faites eeprndant Crrsarto Sumptn.'' The work was 
probably printed for im|>crial presents only, and the impression limited to 
very few copies, the expense having been defrayed by tho Emperor 
Frederick 111 and his son (afterwards Emperor) Maximilian, whose figures 
(kneeling) arc introduced in every border. 

Tbe absurdity spoken of in the Manuel is simply in the boldness of 
conception which marks the artist's work. The blood of the Crucified is seen 
flowing from his wounds into a barrel, from which it spurts out in several jets 
upon good men standing round, or falls into a fountain from which monks 
take it up in pails. It is upon symbolism of this kind that Brunei bases bis 
charge of absurdity. 

The monastery of Tzenna was cast of Magdeburg and north of Lcipcig. 
The woodcuts are, as Didot has remarked, of more archaic type than tho 
contemporary prodnctionsof Numberg, as indeed might be expected. South 
Germany being far in advance of the North in artistic cultivation.

FIRST EDITION of the work by Martin Wal/.emuller or 
idseemiiller (calling himself Hylacomylus), in which the 
name of America was suggested as the one by which the New 
World should in future be known. This is on folio a5, and 
consists of the following statement : " alia qnarta pars [mundi] 
per Americum Vespntinm nt in scqucntibus audietur inventa 
est qnam non video cur quis jure vetet ab Americo inventors 
sagacis ingenii viro Amerigen quasi Americi terram sivc 


Amekioam dicendam." The world lias adopted the suggestion 
of Waldfeemiiller, althongh the fame of Columbus was injured 
by the appellation, and nothing can now avail to change it. 

There is a promise, in the verses which form the colophon, 
of a large harvest of books from the press, but it was falsi lied 
by time. So far as is known only another book was printed.

Although placed under Burn, these two bonks may have been printed

at the storming of Brescia on the 19th of February. 1512, and wrote this 
Zeytung in Bern 6ve days later for the information of bis lord WoH 
von Ahayni, Hitter n Wildenaw, Laudhofmcister of Bavaria. — No press is 
known to have been established in Bern for some twenty years after that date ; 
but it is remarkable that tho type of these two books U, notwithstanding their 
date, extremely rude and archaic, betraying the hand of a new and provincial 
printer. There is sufficient prima facie evidence for supposing these books 
to be the 6rst fruits of the press in Bern.

II DAS NEW TESTAMENT DEDTZSCH, Vuittemberg. sra. folio, 

First Edition of Luther's Testament and first 'printed port ion of his 
German Bible, with fine woodcut initials and numerous full-page 
woodcut illustrations to the Apocalypse, by Lukas Cranach and 
Hans Burgmair ; folios bl and bo" in the Apocalypse wanting ; 
hf. bd. £■: I (Melchior Latter, September 1522) 

Excessively rare. This was the first appearance of Luther's Bible iu 
the language of which it is the foundation and the earliest monument. Having 
onmplatod his version of the New Testament during his seclusion in the 
u'mthiirg, he took the MS. on bis return to the world in March, 1522, to 
Melchior Lotther in Wittenberg, by whom the impression was brought to an 
end iu the September of the same year, bnt who did not venture, no! withstand- 
ing that he was in comparative safety there, to put his name to it as printer. 
By this book the struggle of the Reformation was tnrned into a triumph, the 

Silitical supremacy of the Popes was broken, and the modern literature of 
crmsny was called into existence ; and in this book oar English Bible was 
conceived. It is thus one of the great works of the world ; an object of never- 
ending admiration aud respect. But its rarity is nearly equal to its extra- 
ordinary merit ; this and one other aro the only copies I have ever bad, and 
there was none in the grand " Caxton Exhibition " of Bibles.

Tbo engravings are by a Strassbnrg artist, and were first produced in 
1612 in that city. They nre the finest artistic work which tbe Strassbnrg 
school had produced.— Tbo poem itself is a Metrical Romance, of great 
rarity, written by Ilcnnnnn von Sachsciiucym, who also makes himself the 
hero. He wrote about 1450. The poem is in smooth and fluent couplets of 
tight syllables from licginning to end ; and combines allegorical, fantastic, 
nnd -.itirical features, like sonio French productions of the same lime. The 
Morin, ■ little dark woman, accuses the young knight of falsehood to her 
lady, Queen Venus. Thero is plenty of dialogue, but little incident.

Remarkable as an early instance of the practice of private printing. The 
woodcuts arc a picture of the murder of llutton's cousin by the Duke of 
Wurtcmborg (which led to these invectives against the tyrant), and a portrait 
of Hutten himself. — One of tho letters in this collection is addressed to hi« 
friend Fridrich Fischer, whom he asks to get a wife for him — "graceful, 
young, well brought up, cheerful, modest, patient; endowed with enough, 
not too much ; for I do not seek riches ; and as to her family, I deem her 
sufficiently noble who shall wed Hutten." 

A modern German writer has shown that this book was probably printed 
by Schoffer at Maintz, and the imprint fictitious.

A remarkable volume, unnoticed by any bibliographer. All the capitals, 
except Q, are Gothic ; the <1, v, b, amongst the small letters, arc also Gothic ; 
all the others arc Roman type of clumsy and irregular shape, evidently on 
of the first typographical experiments of the kind. There are no signature*

2 and 3 are numbered 1 and 2, 8 is unnumbered, 9-25 are numbered 8-24 ; 
tho total result being to runke the numeration of 2G-129 correct)— and this 
book must therefore bo considered one of tho earliest examples of that 
practice. There arc no signatures or catchwords. Of the type, it may be 
remarked that the b and the 5 are but little different, and that .each of them 
inclines forward out of the perpendicular.

The designer of the woodcuts in this work, who was Erhart Kcnwich of 
Utrecht, has been described as deserving to rank with the very foremost of the 
tiinc. In point "f fact, the illustrations to Brcydcnbach formed a now epoch 
in the history of the Art of wood-engraving and book-illustration, and tho 
engiavrr. whose namo is unfortunately unknown, deserves no less credit than 
the designer. 

The original Jlentz blocks seem to havo passed into the hands of tlio 
printer of this volume, with the exception only of tho frontispiece; and 
from him they must have been immediately transferred to Peter Drnch at 

The type in this work is almost identical with tho founts used by Priisz 
iu 1 507 nad Schwan in 1524, at Strnseburg.

Fifteen leaves, in small Gothic characters, twenty-seven long lines to a

Tim bo-lit and three or four mora in ttio same typo were formerly 
described (in lirunct and elsewhere) as printed by Veldener at Cologne about 
1 17". Bottrop has proved that ho produced thorn nt l.onynin.

Amongst the pictures in this curious book wo find one of the Rainbow, and 
views of lComc and of Cologne. On the last leaf, just above the year 1454, 
and between the narrations of two facts which occurred in 1457, there is a 
statement " Artifices mini ccleritnte subtilioros solito finnt. Et imprestores 
librorum iim/tijvlicunf ur in terra." This was written by the author, Werner 
Bohvink, a Curthusian monk at Cologne, in or before 1474; in which year 

l floenier printed the first edition from the author's own fir»t fair copy of 
his work. Kulcvink (born in 1425) had lived as a monk in Cologne from 
about 1 447, and, from the nature of his studies, must have been personally 
acquainted with Zell, and whoever else introduced printing into Cologne. 
His acquaintance with that art ami its history cannot bavo begun later than 
1462-3 ; consequently, the assertion above quoted has much greater forco than 
a mere obiter dictum. Vet, up to 1467, wo only know positively of the three 


Mainz printers. — VcMoner reprinted Ther lloernen'i text: having, as ev. 
types testify, close business-relations with Cologne, although he never printed 
there as an independent typographer 

Johann of Westphalia (1474-96).

The first book produced by this great printer at Loavain, where the art 
had been introduced one year earlier by Veldcner. The rubricator's inscription 
is so interesting that it deserves citation : ltubrice per me facte sunt et complete

The signatures are all in the front margins, and printed at right angles 

to the lines (i.e. run down the page instead of across, except the first, which 

runs up). These seem to have been added after the book was printed.

manner as the signature.* of the Aeneas Sylvius) and I four leaves -, an — ll in

the printing of the book, a» the original manuscript signatures in red ink are 
still visible on many of the leaves. — A MS. inscription on the first blank page 
records the possession by the Carthusians of Bruges, to whom it was given by 
their ConfrOn Martinus Ic Bulletur, who bad enriched their library with many 
and various volumes (about 1485).

Tlie Words iwe conventn arc almost effaced, bnt it is plain that the book was

At the end of cucli volume there are several examples of tlie French 
language as used in the documents and proceedings upon which Carlertus 
had boon appointed to deliver juridical opinions. As a specimen I cite a 
conple of lines : — " l'oiir che q nous anons goy lonch tamps dc plnsours

The blockprint on the title has considerable interest as placing 
beyond discussion the fact that the Bi'Mi'a Paupemm was a Dutch work. 
That it was anterior to the Mazarine Bible we may assume without going 
back so far as Holtrop lo about 1410-20. As for Weigol 'a assumption that 
i;- date was not fur from WO, it is invalidated by the peculiar affectation of 
exact deductions from doubtful premisses, which marks his work.

The first complete edition of Le Fevre d'EtapIcs' French version of the 
Bible. Its separate parts bad already been printed in small »i».e and in various 
places between 1523 and 1528 ; bnt in tint volurno they were united for tin- 
first time in a single book. Although Lcmpcrcnr obtained the license of the 
Emperor and the Inquisition for this impression of the Scriptures, •' que il ayt 
puis na gucres fait translatcr," it was not long before it underwent the usual 
fate of vernacular Bibles on the Continent. Hence its rarity at the present 
time. There is no small interest in comparing this with the English Bible 
which was printed in the same city five years later.

tooling, gill edges, from theBechford library, £250. 1465 
This is not only the first edition or tuk book, but is 
also the first dated book which issued from the first Italian 
press, and the first book in which Greek characters 


This copy was bound for Count Dmitri Buturlin and formed 
part of his second collection. It has a special interest as 
containing an inscription by tho rnbricator, who gives his name 
as Nico. W. — Who was ho ? — a German monk in the monastery, 
US w German workman from Maintz associated with Schweinheim r 
Than is so little known concerning the first Italian press at 
Subbiaco that even this little item has its value. A certain 

>las Wolff Alamannus bad a printing press at Lyons from 
1498 to 1503, and Jodocus Had ins was, at least for part of that 
time, his preBS-corrector. It is not improbable that he had 
himself occupied a similar office at Subbiaco, and written tho 
inscription above referred to. 

The discovery in the Klemm Museum at Dresden of a copy 
• f tho Cicero de Oratore (also printed at Subbiaco in 1465) 
bearing a dated MS. inscription by a reader, which would lead 
bo tho presumption that the Lnctantius was posterior to the 

to, has not induced me to cancel tho recognized claim of tho 
former. The list of books printed by Sehweiuhcim and 



Pannartz which they caused to bo prepared in 1472 specified

their first offort.

appear completely in it for the first time. The names of the printers are 
contained in the following three hexameter lines before the date : Hoc

Tins Second Edition is, according to Brunei, quite as rase as tub 
first, and is ono of the earliest books printed at Rome. 

The above is a magnificent copy, measuring 15J by 10J in., that is a trifle 
less than the Sunderland copy, which I sold for £140. The first leaf has been 
slightly torn, and a portion of throe or four letters destroyed, bnt thin is 
absolutely tho only defect. My copy from the Sunderland Library was so tell 
that the origin*] MS. signatures of tho .-heels remained, and I wai thus 
enabled to giro the following collation, vii. a, 16 leaves (tho first and last 
blank) ; l-n in sheets of ten loaves ; o, in twelve ; p-z, and two looeee 
sheets, in tens ; two further sheets, eight leaves each (the two final leaves 
being blank)— making in all 274 leaves, including 4 blanks. This collation is 
verified by the present copy, which also has tho original MS. catchwords — in 
exceedingly rare circumstance in these old volumes, which aro generally ent 
down by mcccssivc binders, and only to lie found in tho very finest specimen-.

Of this excessively rare book, only some three or four copies are in 
existence : its chief importance consists in its being tho first printed record of 
Cabral's discovery of .Brazil in 1500. The special object of tho letter was to 
describe Cabral's two expeditions to India in 1500-1504, but his accidental 
crossing of the Atlantic at the outset, and the setting up of Portuguese crosses 
on the Terra de santa crocs was a fact of such signal importance that tho first 
printed account of it becomes a book of permanent value.

It is interesting to compare this binding with that which Grolier gave to 
his copy of the same work (see Gustavo Brunei, La Reliuro ancicnue et 
iiioiitroe). They were apparently done by the same hand, but in two different 
styles. The only interlacement here is that of the two intersecting triangles 
which form a centrepiece for the name, and all the rest of the ornament is in 
graceful arabesques, tooled d filets pleitu. The effect is brilliant and very 
pleasing ; and the whole binding is iu wonderfully line and fresh condition.

This is a very fine copy in all respects, except for a few worm-holes, 
which are indeed very slight and only in a few leaves at the beginning and 
end of each volume. The first page of text in each volume is surrounded lo- 
an illuminated border in gold and colours, and has a heading of three lines 
written iu gold ; and the initial letters of each book are artistically drawn in 
gold and colours. — It is generally unknown that John of Speyer printed the 
first volume of aLivy in 1469 with the date. When Windelin completed this 
edition in 3 vols, (of which Vol. I exactly corresponds except in date with the 
1469 book) he did not think it necessary to specify his brother's name although 
be had done so in the instance of Augustinus.

I indelinus . . . opud Venetos, L470 

Tin- ti'lophon is an enthusiastic eulogy upon Yindeli- 
prior to the great painters and sculptors of old, not 


he produced many volumes, but because (us in this instance) ho 
gave to the world peqnilchra si mid optimaque. And in truth it 
was no small glory to have printed a first edition of the Latin 
Epic — a work ranking among the few great monuments of 
literature which are likely to survive the destruction of suc- 
cessive empires and the devastating influence of social and 
physical revolutions. Who would not be proud to possess the 
Virgil of 1470, the Dante of 1472, the Homer of 1488 ? The 
Virgil is the rarest, as well as (typographically) tho first, 
member of that noble company ; and one may \to forgiven a 
little enthusiasm in sight of this glorious illuminated copy 
of the Editio Princeps printed on vellum. — Panzer styles it 
Editio Prince}* .-•■!■ a, ula, and Brnnet agrees with him in tho 
opinion that an undated edition produced by Schwoinheim and 
Pannartz at Rome preceded that of Vindelin. The probab Hi I y 
is on their side, but there is absolute certainty in the fact that, 
Vindelin printed from a MS. and recorded the dato of his 
labour ; while tho two candidates for anteriority depend upon 
circumstantial evidence ami pore conjecture.

[sine nota, Bed Veitetiis, circa 1480] 
A very fino copy of this rare geographical work, written in verse, and 
described by Dr. Dibdin as" one of the rarest volumes of early Italiau poetry." 
The first five pages are occupied by a metrical introduction. On the sixth the 
first sonnet begins, which is devoted to the Island of Cerign, opposite to it is 
given a woodcut map, then follow the sonnets on Crete, Rhodes, etc., in due 
succession. The maps are simple oulliues. without any names of places, which 
in this copy are inserted in MS. in n 15th-century hand. The subject of the 
last sonnet is Cyprus, the concluding leaf being the map of that island. 

Tin' present copy accords exactly with the description given by Brunet. 
It consists of fifty-six leaves, without either pagination or signatures. The 
author gives his name on the fifth pugo thns —

Of this excoisivcly rare edition only three or four ol 
Like inost early Bibles, the present copy has several leave- mended, bat is 
evidently otherwise perfect, and probably stands alone in this respect. 

Ucbtmatetn's Bohemian Bible is even scarcer than the Illvrian I'rcces 
and the Brcvinrum Croaticum twice printed by .lndrcoj .Isulanus in the same 
city. Cunsult I "ngar, and the various notices by the Bibliographers Le I 
Goetzc, Clement, Vidckind, Klcich, and Eisner, who all speak unequivocally 
of its rarity and value. 

Ungar has remarked as curious that this edition was not suppref- 

iircd by the Church on its appearance, in spite of an objectionable wood- 
cut which might have betrayed its heretical origin. This is the engraving to 
the sixth chapter of tho Apocalypse, in which the l'ope appears lying in lull.

The first part is dateless, bat the year 1534 appears on the titles and in the

The small map is the earliest we have of St. Domingo, and Is very rare 
indeed, being one of the only two copies known. 

The facsimile of the largo map is taken from the unique copy in the 
Lenox Library. 

On the last leaf of the Libra seeondo there is a notice of this large general 
map (" tavola vniuersale del iwose di tut to le Indie occidentali ") and of two 
other smaller ones (" insiemo con le tanole particulari csuate da due carte da

drawn by Xuno'Garzia do Toreno, of Seville, and the other by another Seville

ter's name is specified, bat the book comes evidently from the same press as the 
Summario, and was probably intended to be a fourth part or supplement of 
that collection. It comprises the two accounts of Magellan's voya^*. by 
Maximilian of Transilvania and Antonio l'igafetta; which are preceded hy 
a remarkable preface "al Lettore" in which the editor (who docs not give his 
name) shows himself to have been perfectly acquainted with the progress of 
discovery aud research in the west, and to have understood the real import UM4 
of the events then taking place, better than most of his contemporaries Thi*

The Bcckford copy fanned £60 \ the Duko of Hamilton's £38. The 
chief value of tliis little volume lies in its map, which professedly originates 
with the record of the voyage of the brothers Zcno iu 1-380-90. The contro- 
versy which hal lung rageil with regard to the genuineness of the map (in 
which Greenland is better designed tlinn in any map printed before 1658) is 
still nnended. and Baron Nordenakjold bus added his celebrated name to the 
Dumber of the disputant* Mr. Major has pretty nearly settled the mntter

eonflgtmtion of Greenland that ho possessed better sources of knowledge

( Venet. Aldus, 1504) 
Here we have Hie rare combination of a book in every way 
valuable, with a binding of the most precious character. The 
owner of the first Aldine Homer on vellum can put himself 
on a level as a collector with Lord Spencer and the Duke of 
Devonshire ; but it is not likely that any of the four copies 

ribed by Renouard (Royal Library II. M., Pius VI, Althorpe, 
Chntsworth) can vie with the Sunderland copy in its exterior. 
This is probably one of the last grand works executed by the 
great artists who disappeared from the capital of France when 
the Huguenot persecutions began which culminated at St. Bar- 
tholomew. It was executed about 1560-65.

I in-i ammo* with a date; so rare that although it is mentioned by 
Iiruntt and his coutinuator, no collation is given by them, the liook itself 
never apparently having come into their hands. The volume consists of 16* 
leaves without marks. The Roman tyjie is of very primitive character and full 
of contract ion-. Even the proper form of the printer's name, as given in the 
ted colophon, is uncertain. He was an Augustiniau monk who had 
l'i ailed a book at Savona in 1474. and had been obliged by the plague to quit 
his convent there and settle at Milan, lie is thought to have been identical 
with Johannes Wurstcr of Kempen, who was printing at Mantua in 1472, 
but this is apparently not correct.— The metrical colophon runs as follows: —

of the leaves of Index in the Itinenuiamn Portugallcnsiuin, and the necessity

The artist's nninc i- unknown, bat ho must bo held to rank among the 
best designers of his time. There is a freedom and boldness in his drawing, 
and n mastery of composition, which are seldom found in union with tho 
apparent roughness of execution, and the absence of finish in (he typographical 
adjuiM". Ill- groups of bambini are very ranch like those in the l'oli- 
philo, and quite as charmingly delineated. The book is a fortune-telling 
encyclopedia, and the pages me full of little figures of dice or dominoes, with 
references below to the grandly-bordered circles on tho pages in which further 
reference* are made to tho woodcuts of the prophets whore responses appear.

The Invention of Typography by " C iiitemborgus Argentincnsis " is 
here related, with au insinuation tlmt I lie inventor had been directly inspired 
by God. By this wonderful nrt, says Fulgosus, tho great writers of ancicut 
days may bo said to hare begun their existence in U4o. 

The discovery by Christopher Columbus, a (unocse, of a way to tho 
Indies shorter thnn any known before, is also recorded (although with tho 
mistake that the voyage had been accomplished in thirty-one dnysi. Fulgosus 
lays that this new method was shorter, easier, and far preferable to the long 
■nd dangerous voyage along tho Coast of Africa and through the Southern 
(Indian) Ocean, by which others (Vasco do Gama and the Portuguese) had 
sooght the same regions. In spite of its errors, this constitutes an interesting 
and very early none of the two most important voyages in tho long annils 
of Geographical Discovery.

signed by J. de Vargas and Dunne Pinel, it ii called nuartra tradueion which 
they wished eacar a luz) in his address to the reader states that he hod cauitd 
the Bible to be translated by several learned men. lie excuses the barbarous 
style of the language on the ground that the ancient sententious language of 
the Spanish Jews had been used for tho purpose of obtaining greater closeness 
to the original. All this makes it probable that the translation was really an 
old one, in use in Spain amongst the .Tews for centuries before, and that it 
was merely sacada a Ins in 1553. so that (as the editor says) Spain should 
not be the only conntiy without a vernacular Bible — that is, in Cnstilian, 
for he mentions the fact that the Scriptures had lieen printed in I'oialmi. 
In the well-known passage in Isaiah, in the phrase " the maid shall concave 
and bring forth a son," the word for maid is wioea, which i> eonaltaad to 
indicate the nsc of the Jows, while in other copies the corresponding wool i*

Ptoltlimn 'crii-.-. rf the knowledge Of Eastern geography possessed by 
European.-* in tbe fifteenth century. 

Francesco Iterlinghieri, a Florentine, contributed greatly to the study of 
Geography by this popular work in Italian verse. It bears no date, but 
must have been published about the same time as the Roman Ptolemy of 1478, 
since the Duke of L'rbino, to whom it is dedicated, died in 1482. Indeed it is 
more than probablo that the work of Berliughieri is entitled to claim prece- 
dence before the Ptolemy (has the first collection of Maps printed from copper- 
plates), as the two sets of engravings arc very much alike, but tho Koman 
book exhibits a very superior technical finish which evinces the improvement 
of a later hand. In somo respects the Berliughieri approximates nearer to 
geographical correctness.

First issue ow tiii: first eihtion, ani> excessively kark. 
This work was truly tho first Collection of Voyages ever com- 
piled. [Tho Portuguese book, dated 1502, and containing thu 
travels of Marco Polo, Hieronymo di S. Stephano, and Nicolo 
Conti together, translated by Valentino Fernandez Aleraun, 
might lay claim to Bfieh a distinction, but certainly not 
the Italian abridgment of Peter Martyr's first Decade 
(Libretto de tutta la Navigation) printed at Venice in 1504, and 
In ire reprinted in the Pacsi.] That these copies are absolutely 
of the first, issue, appears from the number of chapters, and 
from the full colophon, which ends with " Own gratia § privi- 
legio /■. mii. x. coma lull" mm Bolla appara: rite p. sda del 
1'iiuiiui" Viihln no ni'Iisrii ifriiiii'iiii.'' In some copies, this 
colophon ends with tho word " iirinileijio," from which we may 
conclude that they belong to a re-issue made when tho ten years' 
privilege was nearly run out (after the date of tho Itinerarium 
Portugal!. 1508). The compiler of the work was Fracanzio di 
Montuibnddn, or " Montalboddo Fracan " as it appears at the 
bee&ag of the dedicatory epistle ; and the contents of the work 
are as follows: — 

Voyages of Cadamosto and Pedro de Cintra, in Portuguese 
service, 1454, 1463, their first publication (Capp. i-r. ). 

Vasco da Gama's Voyage round the Cape, 1497-1500, its 
frit publication (i.i-lxii). 

' -abnl-B Voyage, 1500, fink publication of the narrative 
conceriiimj the discovery of Brazil (lxiu-lxxxiii). 

Abridgment of Peter Martyr's yet unpublished first Decade, 
containing voyages of Columbus, Alonso Nino, Pinzon, 1492- 
1500. already pnniod at Venice in 1">04 (i.xxxiy-cxih). 

Vespucci's Letter to Lorenzo di Pier Fr. de Medici, re- 
h.inslated from the printed Latin of 1503 (cxiv-cxxiv). 

Letters of Venetian ambassadors and merchants, dated 1501- 
1502, ooncerning the Portuguese voyages to India, and Cork' 
Kciil's voyage to , Amaritsa,—fintpublirnii',u (Vxxv-i'xxviu) 

Account of India, by Ioseph of Crnnganor (tho Indian 
Christian whom Cahral brought from India in 1501), given in 
l."i" J, first publication (cxxix-cxui). 

As will appear from the preceding detail, tho chapters 
l-L'M.ii in this first issue of the Paeti, In the second issue, which 


presents the truncated colophon referred to above, anoiln.i- 
chapter (cxxni) was added, giving a translation of King 
Manoel's letter to Pope Julius II concerning his conquest in 
India (Emanuelis Obedientia, etc. printed at Roino in 1505). — 
Mr. Harrisse says that the Cabral Voyage (capp. 63-83 above) 
was translated from King Emanuel's Letter to the King of 
Castile, printed in Italian at Rome and Milan in 1505 ; butt! 
simply a blunder. The letter of 1505 is a short opuscule of eight 
leaves, the first four being devoted to a brief record of the satno 
events as are detailed in the 21 chapters here ; but it refers to 
another letter (not yet discovered, and which was probably trans- 
lated in the Cabral chapters of the Paesi) in which the Por- 
tuguese king states that he had ah-eady given full information. 

Beneath the register on the last page is the printer's mark 
containing the initials R. V. 

The compiler of the Grenvillo Catalogue, speaking of tbo 
rarity of this volnmo, says, " Camus, in his Memoire sur De Bry, 
p. 342, regrets that he has never been able to see a single copy 
of this Edition."

A volume of great rarity. Amongst the woodcuts are exhibited tome 
curious representations of Milan Cathedral, which Mr. J. S. Hawkins con- 
sidered so important, as being the earliest engravings of Gothic architecture 
known. For a long time Mr. Hawkins was nnnblc to obtain even a sic. 
the work, but finally procured a copy ; the volume is described by him as " so 
scarce that I at present know of "no more than two copies besides my own 
existing in this country, and one of thc6e two is in the Bodleian Library." 
Some of tho other woodcuts are moat interesting, and include an ancient ma- 
dia), antique bath, the sphere, a ship moved by paddles and various BOttn 
powers, architectural instruments, etc. The Commentary is extremely valuable, 
not only to tho mathematician and architect, but also to the painter ami 
sculptor, as it gives rules for colouring and for studying symmetry of propor- 
tion, especially mentioning Michael Angelo and other eminent artists. The 
first mention of the camera obscura, usually attributed to Porta, is also found 
in this work. For the history of art and literature Ccsarino's notices are 
bigblj important, us nearly every page has allusion to, and mention of, name*

An early specimen from the first press of Fano, where printing was 
■luccd only live years before. The beautiful arabesque borders, white ou Mack 
ground, arc probably tho work of a different artist from the designer of the 
figure-groups. Besides the ten large engravings occupying full pages, there 
is a number of smaller ones in the text. 

It is customary to treat the illustrations in this volume as woodcuts, bat it 
is equally probable thot they were produced by engraving on soft metal.

This excessively rare edition was printed somewhere in the north of Italy

Presentation copy to tho Abbey of S. Maria ud G ratios at Neustift in the 

"I. from Kleanor of Scotland, Archduchess of Austria and Countess of 
Tyrol. This appears from a MS. inscription in each volume, which must have 
been written not later than 1479, as the Scottish princess died in 1480. 

This rare edition (formerly referred to Jacobus Rubous at Venice, aud 
I'lriih llahn at Rome) is now generally assigned to Sixtus Riossinger, at 
Naples. The type seems certainly to be tho same as was usod by him; but 
whonco cemes the inscription at the end, " la Ru " ? Neither Brunei nor 


Grnosse attempts to explain it, ulthough they hoth state thnt this wi' the i 
of the older nssignmeut to Jacobus Rubens. There is a mystery aboat the 
matter, — for if we jndgo from Oie early Tyrolian inscription (probably written 
about 1475), and from the fact that another copy, which pttwdlhroagl 
market many years ngo. belonged, about 1480, to a nobleman of Rori-n.— >c 
would seem, in connexion alio with the circumstance that the two rolnujcs 
were reprinted at Parma in 1480— that the " la. Ru." edition must have been 
produced in North-east Italy. Thus it becomes an interesting problem fur the 
history of early typography in Italy. The book is printed in a nnaU type. 
nsually called itmi-gothic but really pure Roman, in double columns of 50 line* 
to a full page. The last page finishes as follows : — "finis «ccundi voluniinis 
Kpistolarum Beatissimi llicronymi. Veritas Vincit. Ja. Bo." So fine a copy 
for cleanness, absence of wormholes, and general excellence of condition, it 
would perhaps lie h '■ml a^-ain.

The leaves nre marked with Arabic numerals ; this is probably the first 
instance of the use of sneh numeration in books printed in France. It has no 
signatures. Panzer and others have mistaken the true date of this volume. As 
the sixteenth year of Louis XI ended in July, 1477 ; consequently tlic October 
of his seventeenth year wos the October of 1477. 

In 1478 Goring was left alone by his two original partners and began a

Im/irimr imnuellemenl a Paris [par Antoine Verard, vers 1490] 

First edition printed by Verard of this famous book. It accords exactly 

with [In description given by Unmet. It bun. as he describes, 142 leaves, 

printed in two columns of 43 lines each, without pagination or catchwords, bnt 

with signatures, and the last leaf bearing on the recto a large woodcut of 

" ilaistre Jehan de menu " in his library, with the reverse blank. Brunei does 

not, however, seem to have known of this particular issue, which differs from 

that which ho describes in not having the printer's mark on the title or last 

l.ul of text, and is therefore probably the earlier impression.

An extraordinary repertory of mediaeval knowledge npon all subjects. A 

thorough study of this book (written in the thirteenth century) would not only 

enlighten modem readers with regard to the state of learning and education 

amongst our ancestors, far better thnn any other work could do ; but would 

even supply many items of useful information to the most accomplished

Before the sale of this copy only three others on vellum 
were known, of which two are in the National Library at Paris, 
and one in that of the Due d'Aumale. This copy appears to 
want 17 leaves, as it only contains 158 printed leaves besides 
tho 3 miniatures on separate leaves (which of course do not 
appear in the paper copies), and Brunet gives tin- mini Lit

is to the " due philippe de bonrgoiguv."

Tbe title of the second part is as follows : " Le Codicille & testament [I 
de raaistre Ioha de mean Auccqnes lepitapho du fca roy Charles septiesme qui 
trespassa a Mean." Branet in citing it, gives, instead of the last two words, 
"■adit Meun." which is perhaps an error on his part, and not an indication of 
a different issue.

DidoVa copy, with the title and another leaf in facsimile, fetched 1300 fr.

£240. A dirty and wanned copy fetched 1500 fr. at Paria in 1876. 

Thi* copy does noi bear a title printed on the obverse of the first leaf (tbe 
rcverte of which contains a large woodcut), although it is certain that some, 
probably the later, copies were so issued. The last leaf in exact facsimile. 

Mr. Uttcrson, to whom the copy formerly belonged, has prefixed a leaf 
from which the above title is taken, containing a facsimile in manuscript of 
the titular words as he found them in some other copy. That variations exist 
between copies is shown by the circumstance that Branet remarks that folio c 
Is marked i mi, whercus in this copy it is printed correctly. Moreover, he 
mentions that nothing but a woodcut is found upon the lost preliminary leaf, 
whilst in this copy there is, as well as that woodent, a Prologue, occupying 
both pages. 

This volume consists of signature A and a-o and A-S, all in eights, except 
n, o and S, which arc in sixes. Thus the total number of leaves is really 258 
(uiisnumbered CCC.xxxix), and not 257 as Brunei states.

the finest and most sumptuous example of the Grandee Heures 
produced by Vostre. It is over 250 millimetres in height, and 
171 in breadth. Brunot does not seem to have seen this 
particular issue, although it is No. 80 of his list, in which he 
cites Peignot's elaborate account of it in his Ilecherches siir let 
Datises des Marts. Among the peculiarities noted there, is the 
occurrence, in the sories of Death-Dance figures, of French 
rhymes at foot of the subjects, which are not discovered in the 
other Hone ; also the comparatively large size of many of the 
minor woodcuts, such as those of the Sibyls. In fact the size 
and scope of this edition gave Vostre an opportunity of 
exhibiting the entire wealth of his illustrative art; and tho 
borders are consequently richer and more elaborate than in any 
other. Of the large engravings, the majority are identical with 
those of the two previously described issues of 1508 ; but the 
number was enlarged, and there are some which appeared here 
for the first time.

in ilic preceding Hone of 1507, the work is hero set down under Vostre.

The date is conjectured from the circumstance that the Almanac is for the 
years 1612-30. — Several prayers and rubrics, as well as the detailed contents at 
the end, are in English. This edition was unknown to Unmet. It corresponds 
in signatures, and In number of leaves and lines, with his No. 88 ; but Um

of Death begins on the last leaf of sign. I, prove that they are unite distinct

A very singular work, notwithstanding its piety. One chapter is on " le 
sacrS ventre de In Vierge," followed hy n " Meditation nux cui'.«se.«." It is not 
therefore surprising, while he dwells on the mere ventre, and " ees dignca et 
precicuses cnisses," that the author says " De ccste /ontaine de vie eituit a%

First, edition of this extraordinary book. It is so rare that only two 
other copies on paper are known, one of which is in ihu library of the Baron 
James Rothschild, and the other in the library of a private collector in 
Kngland, while on vellum no perfect copy of it is known to exist The reason 
of the extreme rarity of the edition is more easily accounted for than is often 
the case with books which have well-nigh disappeared. It is on record thjt 
in I62t) a company of Italian comedians visited Paris, aud were greatly 
patronised by the court, to the prejudice aud injury of the French actor*. 
This was so strongly resented by Uringoire that among the very eurions 
engravings with which the volume is illustrated, he inserted one which, at 
first sight, appears to represent Christ reviled anil crow ned with thorns ; bat 
the author had recourse to the extraordinary expedient of revenging hinwelf 
on hia competitors by putting his own portrait in the place of Christ, with his 
hands bound, while he is surrounded by the Italian comedians who revile and 
mock him, and one of them reaches forward a crown of thorns to place on his 
head. The andacions profanity of this performance soon aroused the censures 
of the Sorbonne, and ■ decree of Parliament, dated Aug. 28, 1527, commanded 
that the work should be suppressed and not reprinted. The artist's mark 
(S within G, surmounted with a Lorraine cross) appears in the right bottom 
comer of this engraving. Bernard's work on Qeoffroy Tory is no doubt 
correct in reading the mark as O(ododridus) T(orinus) S(calpstt). 

One of. the only two other known copies was formerly in the Didot 
collection, at the sale of which it was sold for «78.

FlItST KDITION of the French translation of the Patsi. Brnnet and 
Harrisse have invented a strange theory concerning the chronological succession 
of the editions. The facts are plain. This was the original edition, produced 
by the legitimate publisher, and bearing the privilege, dated 1516, which gnvo 
him the monopoly. While his privilege ran, no printed edition could bo issued 
with a date. Henco the others which exiBt, five or six in number, bear no 
honestly recorded year of impression and have no privilege. Another 
significant token is the fact that in the chapters of Vespucci's third voyage, 
there arc three diagrams of constellations in the Southern hemisphere, 
bold woodcuts, in Galliot Dnpre's edition, which were omitted through care- 
lessness by the repriuters, notwithstanding the catchwords in the text.

This book, which may be culled the first French Collection 
of Voyages, has been very badly described by Mr. Harrisso. 
The anonymous editor dedicates the Extraict, which is a French 
abridgment of Peter Martyr's first throe Decades made before 
the publication of the entire eight in 1530, to Charles, Dnc 
d'Angonleme. The Narrations are dedicated, not to Margaret of 
Austria, but to Margaret of France. The first is an abridg- 
ment of the fourth Decade printed at Basil in 1521. The 
second and third are drawn from the second and third Cortes 
letters, printed in Latin at Niirnberg in 1524. Consequently the 
"Extraict" must be held to take precedence of Grymeus, as the 
Novus Orbis did not begin to embody Cortes' letters till 1555. 
The compiler was probably one of the distinguished scholars 
who surrounded the two promising children of Francis I, men- 
tioned as receiving the dedications. The Due d'Angouleme 
was then only ten years of age, the Princess Marguerite (after- 
mods Duchess de Berri, and wife of Emanuel Philibert of 
Savoy) only nine, but they were already regarded as future 
patrons of literature, and their education was carefully 
cultivated. — This rare work fetched at tho Beckford-Hamilton 
salo £126.

( in the sides there is an interlaced geometrical centrepiece, rounded with 
wreaths of foliage ; nod a full border of similar leaf-pattern with shield- 
cartouches at the corners and in the middle. The ornamentation on the back 
is in harmony, bnt the leaf-forms are a little larger. On the whole, this noble 
example is a work of masterly skill and taste. Its freshness is remarkable.

This book il not only very rare, but al§o excessively curious, and belongs 

to a class of early literature now much sought after. It contains the Acts of 

the Apostles dramatized as a mystery, with a number of singular characters 

and grotesque stories added to heighten Ihe effect. When it was played at 

Bourges, as the title states, it must have been divided into parts, as each 

representation would have occupied several days. The printer's device is a 

panning one : two angels tied, with the motto les angea Mr*.

at the end, and being probably the entire survival of the uncompleted edition. 
The paper copy which went into the Bibliotheqne Nationale bears the name of 
the printer and the date. According to Brunet it ends with p. 448 which look* 
like a mistake from his having confounded the 224 as a foliary instead of •

Appabbntlt unique xsd usKNciws. It is not recorded by any of the 
bibliographers (barring an uncertain reference found in Fahricins) although 
it is decidedly the most ambitious literary work executed by Doc or Dooms 
Bishop of I aon, as be became a few years afterwards. The preface in this 
volume is by Claude Baudet one of the professors of the Abbey school of St. 
Denis, and he describes the author as next in rank among them to the Abbal. 
This preface is dated " ex icdibus Diouytianis anno salutis srxquiroillesimo 
quadragesimo nono," i.e. 1549 ; and it is possible that the book may hare been 
panted within the walls of the monastery. This nniqne copy has probably 
survived becanso of its being printed on vellum, and bound for some dis- 
tinguished person. It is possible that all the ordinary copies, having been 
delivered to the boys and the young monks for daily study, were all destroyed.

There is no special mark on the binding that indicates 

possession by the famons Diane ; but in cadres within the 

illuminated border of the title-page, the three crescents and 

the interlacing H and DD are wrought in silver upon a blue 

ground ; and the style of the ornament is that usually adopted 

by her binder. This is the dedication copy to Henri II.

It thug contains, besides the 5 leaves of Table, 242 unnumbered leaves, which 
iu this copy have been correctly so numbered by a contemporary hand. 

The type is the same as that used by 13 1 v i : it . Lyons' first printer, in Oie 
Iloderieus Sancius do Arevalo of 1477. Il is probable that this translation of 
the Bible would be his first production. 

This edition has apparently never hitherto been described bv bibliogra-

iv|.!' which he declares to be Buyer's also.

a fine copy in old French red morocco extra, gilt edges, by Derome 
lejeune, uniquk, £96. 5. n. (Lyon, environ 1479-80) 

Unique as a perfect copy ; there ia however a second copy known, now 
in the Lyons library, whicli wants the Inst leaf. Beyond the two copies 
specified, there is no other extant to onr present knowledge. The type is not 
the same ns in the edition assigned to Gnillaume Leroy and described by 
Unmet as " uric des plus unrienncs que. jusqu'ici, nons commissions de CO 
1 i v re "; but the woodcuts in each of the two editions are identical and from 
the same blocks, only a little more worn and showing a few breaks here and 
there in the later edition. We therefore place the impression under Leroy's 
name, although ho may not have been the printer. Tho above volume 
exhibits them certainly in the first stage of their uso. — The Gothic type is 
totally different in style and character from that in the following edition. 
One of the points to be remarked is the frequent use of the upright Gothic d 
instead of i. — Brunct gives a long paragraph to this edition, but he knew 
nothing of it except from a private letter addressed from Lyons to Van Praet, 
describing the imperfect copy in the Lyons library.

S. n. (Lyon Guillaume Leroy, environ 1484) 
The Didot copy fetched 5500 francs. 

Unmet speaks of this edition as being, in his opinion, the earliest known 
impression of tho work. Such howevor it cannot be from its having the 
identical woodcuts of the preceding edition in a secondary state. The most 
remarkable feature in tho Gothic type of this volume is thai there is no abbrc- 
v iation for et. which is always printed in full. There is no upright d amongst 
the characters.

I : a ii i: . nil the copies that could be obtained having been ordered to be 
burned by Calvin. It is the most famous edition in the entire scries of 
Ptolemies, in consequence of the paragraph that caused the martyrdom of 
Servetus. This paragraph is alluded to by Ebert, Brnnet, Harnsse, and 
others, but nil of them make the same mistake with regard to its position 
in the book. It appears on the map of Palestine in the second series, and the 
fault lay in accusing the " Biblici libri " of " injuria ant jactantia pura ;" 
but, of course. Servetus was not the author of the passage, having merely 
reprinted it from the editions of 1522 and 1525. Indeed the labours of 
Servetus were not very heavy ; he did but reprint those editions, with a few 
additions, a few omissions, and a total substitution of text only in the 
descriptions of France, Spain, Germany, and Italy. Here, Servetus expresses 
freely his own opinions and prejudices, which differ extremely from those 
of bis predecessor. With regard to Germany, he quotes "producit Hungaria 
boves. Bavaria sues, Franconia cepas rapas et glyccrliL'iani, Sucvia merctriees, 
Boemia hercticos, Bavaria itenini fnres, Helvetia cnniificct bubsequas, 


Wcstfalia fallaces, tota doniquo Germanis ac totus eoplemtrio jrulnnes el 
pota tores." To the identical account of Columbus which appeared in the 
editions of 152-2 and 1525. Servetus has appended > few remarkable words 
concerning the absurdity of patting the claims of Americns in precedence to 
those of the real discoverer. ThU is the only early protest we meet with 
against the name of America being given to the New World.

The second volume was never printed at Rouen. 

According to Brunetand his continuatur, it would appear that seven copies 
of this volume were still extant ; but tlint number ought perhaps to be reduced 
t<> two or three, as the names of seven owners do not certainly indicate an equal 
number of copies. Iu Baron Seillierc's sale (Sotheby's, March, 1H87) his 
copy, described as probably unique, fetched n hundred guiueas. 

The first books that can be positively asserted to have been printed in

Printing cannot be overestimated. I in leaf .11 1 verso, nnder the year 1430,

Koelhof relates the events which he had frequently heard his master V 
Zell relate. Zell came from Merit/, to Cologne in 1462-3 . hi- first dated book 
appeared in 1466 ; Koelhof started as an independent printer in 1472 It 
was probably therefore between 1466 and 1472, that Koelhof learned the 
practico and history of the art in Zell's house. There are eighty -one 
lines in his narrative, but the most remarkable words in it are thote. And ia 
the year of our Lord 1450, it was then a golden year, then teas it begun to 
print, and" Me first book that wot printed una the Bible in Latin, and it tnu

Kxcrsmtelt RAttB. From a verre addressed to the printer at the end of 

the volume, we learn that this Erbardtis Oglin was the first to print music in 

Germany by means of movable types, and that this was his first work. 

The Music comprises settings of twenty-two of Horace's odes, arranged 

in parts for four voices. It was the earliest appearance in Germany, of music 

with the notes and the staff both printed. Conrad Celtis dedicated it in some 

verses to Jordanns, the lender of a vocal choir at Augsburg. It is said that 

Tritonias' proper name was Olivenbatun or Oclbaum.

This was the first issue by Verard, as appears from the absence of a title, 
and the absence of a leaf of prologue. Ilcre the preliminary leaves are seven 
in Dumber (lb* first, a blank, huviug been torn away); of which, six leaves 
[■ ii— [a vii]i contain the table, and the seventh has a large woodcut on the 
obverse, the reverse blank. — i In the second issue, these preliminary leaves 
were reprinted in smaller characters. The largo woodcut was placed* on the 
reverse of folio 1 , and the words of iutitulalion printed on the obverse ; the 
table occupied leaves 2 — 7 ; and on the eighth leaf a prologue was added.)

'simile, £45. (About 1504) 

Brunei, his continuntor, anil the compiler of tlio Didot catalogue, all 
refer this edition to "vers 1501 ;" but Brunet himself shows elsewhere that 
Vcrard did not describe his house as "devant la rue neove Notre Dame " till 
after September, 1603.

This is the translation made by Julien Machn from the celebrated

Brunet the above Paris edition appeared about 1499-1500; but the assign- 
ment to " about 1505 " seems more justifiable. The woodcuts are very curious; 
being far more numerous than thoas of the original work, and certainly not 
elia primitive.

never mentions it. although he gives more than a column to his description of 
the book. The Supplement describes it properly. OM can understand that 
it must have been torn out of most copies for the use of travellers.

Few books possess such a title as this, to rank among the 
costly rarities of bibliophily. It is the nnique copy, in splendid 
condition, of the long lost and long sought-for, first edition of 
the Amadis — a work, which besides its own literary merit, has 
also the grand distinction of having influenced and tinctured 
the minds of writers and readers throughout Spain, Fnr 
Italy, and England for nearly two centuries. Till Truss 
discovered it at Ferrara and sold it to Baron Seilliere, no one 
knew of any edition older than thai printed at Rome in 1519, 
which, for many reasons, was decidedly not the princeps. Au 
edition, of Sevilla, 1511, was frequently cited with doubt, ra '.lie 
faith of an entry made by Ferdinand Columbus in his catalogue 
early in the sixteenth century ; but no one had ever seen it, and 
the correctness of the description was suspected. One may 
conceive therefore the sensation of surprise and delight with 
which the bibliophiles heard of Baron Seilliere's t ran 

dated Zarngoza, 1508. — Neither the first French Lancelot, nor 
the first English Mort Arthur, nor the first Valencian Tirant to 
Blanch, can compete in rarity with the first Spanish Amadis, » 
book that is equally with them a great central monument of old 

The editor or renovator, Garci-Ordonex de Montalvo, 
according to later editions, is in the rubricated he 
prHwapt] described as Garcirodrigucz de Montalvo, and 


prologue makes the usual statement that he simply corrected the 
corrupted text of the three books of Amadis, that he had had the 
good fortune to get hold of the original fourth book and the 
original Sergas de Esplandiaii (i.e. the fifth book or first 
continuation), and that he translated the latter two so as to add 
them to the former three. He did not, however, print the 
Sergas until it appeared as a separate book in 1510. The 
judgment of critics is divided as to whether ho was himself the 
author both of Book IV and of the Sergas, or only of tho latter. 
With regard to the original three books, and their origin, tho 
following recital of the case as it stands may be useful. 

The usual and generally accepted belief is that a Portuguese 
or Galician knight, Vasco de Lobeira, wrote the Amadis (i-iii) 
in the latter part of the thirteenth century, and tho earliest 
statement to that effect is made by Gomez Ennnes de Aznrara 
(about 1440-50), who speaks with some contempt of Lobeira as 
having fabricated his idle history in the reign of King Ferdinand 
(i.e. 1367-85). This agrees with the statement made by others 
that Loveira died in 1403-4, which is probably correct. [But 
Swore is a farther assertion made by several persons, that he 
wrote the Amadis for the Infante Alfonso of Portugal, who is 
mentioned in Lib. i, cap. 40, of tho romance, and that the Infante 
was born in 1370; from which they conclude that the book, 
I '"I'tugnese or Galician, was not written earlier than 1386. All 
i Ms ie aboard, ns there was no such Infante, and the mention in 
Lib. I, cap. 40 is plainly made by Montalvo himself. Four Dom 
Alfonsos were Infantes of Portugal between 1290 and 1490. 
The first, who became King Alfonso IV in 1325, is too early for 
Loveira; the second, who was the son of Joao I, and died of the 
plague in 1400, had only reached his eleventh or twelfth year, 
and was therefore too young to suit the theory ; the third was 
Infante only for the first six years of his life and then came to 
the throne as Alfonso V; tho fourth, a son of Joao II, was born 
in 1475 and died from accident in 1491.] The residue of 
conjecture mav be taken to be that Loveyra's Amadis was 
written about 1380-90. 

The Spanish critics point out that the existence of a 
popular Amadis romance is indicated by Pero Lopez do 
Ayala (about 1370) and by Pero Ferrus (in or after 1:: 
and that consequently it must have had considerable circulation 
before that time. It is thus insinuated that Loveyra could not 
li.ivo been the author. Tho stanza of Ferrus even goes so far 
as to specify that his Amadis was in three books, just as 
Montalvo says in the printed Amadis. Of conrso it is possible 
that Loveyra may have written as early as 1360, but even then, 
it hardly seems that the work would have had time to become 
popularly- known in Spain. 

Garcirodriguez de Montalvo does not profess to have 
translated but only to have amended the three books of Amadis, 
but he would hardly consider himself as doing translator's work 
if he were simply Castilianising a Galician or a Valencian text. 


The referenco in Lib. I, cap. 40, to the nltenition in the story 
commanded by the Infante Alfonso of Portugal probably I 
to the young Alfonso who came to many Isabel Di B] 
(daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella) in 1490, to whom ho may 
have presented the MS. of his first book, and for whom he may 
have made some change in the incidents, rejected win-: 
re-wrote tho romance as we now have it, after 1491.
