Description:
BOOK DESCRIPTION: FIFTEENTH-CENTURY COPY OF GUIDO DA PISA'S HISTORY OF ROME, IN ITALIAN. In Italian, decorated manuscript on parchment, Italy, Tuscany, Florence(?), c. 1440-1460. Dimensions 260 x 182 mm., 83 folios, lacking nine leaves, horizontal catchwords, written in brown ink by two different scribes in Italian cursive mercantesca script in single column on 38 lines, penwork initials. BINDING: ORIGINAL dark brown calf over wooden boards blind-tooled with fillets, twisted rope and x-form motifs, fitted purple buckram case c. 1900. TEXT: Guido da Pisa is best-known for his commentary on Dante, and Dante is cited often in this work, a history of Rome composed within the format of a universal chronicle.

PROVENANCE: script and decoration suggest that the manuscript was written in Tuscany in the middle of the fifteenth century. The binding,… Read more

Description:
DECORATED MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT IN FRENCH ON PAPER, France (Burgundy), or Switzerland (Basel?), c. 1450. Dimensions 214 x 138 mm., i + 139 + i folios, apparently complete, written in a formal cursive gothic bookhand (close to lettre bâtarde) in twenty-three long lines, one large parted red and blue initial, alternating red and blue initials, red and blue paragraph marks. BINDING: nineteenth-century cartonnage binding with gilded spine and raised split cord, labelled on spine, "Traité des vices et des virtus." TEXT: the humanist Jacques Legrand's, Le livre de bonnes meurs, was a bestseller in its day, circulating among the ruling elite at the French and Burgundian courts. This appears to contain the first version of the text, written six years before the final edition dedicated to Duke Jean de Berry. It lacks illumination but is copied in a very elegant calligraphic book hand that echoes the script of many of the luxury copies. PROVENANCE: evidence of the script and watermark suggests that this… Read more
