Note on the on-line catalogue

The printed Travers catalogue includes extremely detailed bibliographical information regarding the format, collation, numeration, illustrations, type, references, contents, bindings, and provenance of books listed in the collection. However, because of the shortcomings of HTML as a means of describing rare book material, it has been necessary to omit certain parts of this information from the on-line version of the Travers catalogue. Hence, the HTML catalogue lists title, imprint, bindings, provenances, and notes of matters of interest, but does not include the more specialist bibliographical information regarding format, collation, numeration, illustration, and type. The full details on each book can be obtained by contacting Special Collections. In the entries for Book Nos. 140, 227, and 268, titles using the Greek alphabet have been transliterated. Again, full details of the original catalogue entry can be provided on demand.

1. JACOBUS, de Voragine

a. MT 1968.
Usually found with Questiones Evangeliorum de Sanctis, which has a separate colophon of the same year, described with it in most repertories, but is to be found separately, and is clearly a volume which can stand on its own.

3. JOHANNES, de Tambaco, O.P.
De consolatione theologie.
[Strasburg, Georg de Spira, not after 1479].
310mm wooden boards, rebacked in leather (20th cent.), 2 clasps and catches wanting.

The first work is a revised and augmented version of the alphabetically arranged Summa de casibus conscientiae of Bartholomaeus a Concordia, an early 14th cent. Dominican who lived in Pisa (hence Pisanellae).
The Consilia-counsels against money-lending Jews-is the first printed totally anti-semitic text.

5. TORTELLIUS, Johannes
De Orthographia. Edited by Hieronimus Bononius.
Vicentiae ... per Hermanum Lichtenstein, (31 Oct. 1480).

b. inscription Collegij Societatis Jesu Ratisbonae. 1587
c. bookplate removed from fly leaf

e. ex Quaritch 1956.
The new information on dating makes this very probably the first book from the press of the printer of Jordanus de Quedlinberg named after the author of the edition around which the others were grouped typographically. Since that early stage of modern study of incunabula the printer has been identified as Georg Husner.

7. HIGDEN, Ranulphus
Polychronicon. [Books 1-7 edited by William Caxton from John of Trevisa's translation from the Latin. Book 8 Continuation 1358 to 1460 by William Caxton.]

q. Maggs Brothers
r. Sotheby 21 April 1958 lot 275 (with slip pasted in) [to:]
s. ex Quaritch (with catalogue slip inserted).
This record is based on Seymour de Ricci A census of Caxtons Oxford. 1909 no.49 copy 36 and copy 88. Inclusion of h. and i. from his copy 82 are tentative since its whereabouts have not certainly been traced since the sale. The page size agrees and the difficulties of cataloguing perhaps explain the differences in the sale catalogue's record of imperfections (wanting all before ff.(10; 178, 179), and all after (377). It is also quite possible that some of these lacunae were made good before the Cockerell binding.

8. ALBERTUS, Magnus, Saint

300mm original wooden boards, ¼ leather blind tooled, probably German about 1490 (tools not in Kyriss); the single clasp and catch missing.

Venetiis, per Bonetum Locatellum. Mandato ... Octauiani Scoti, (19 Oct. 1492).
328mm 20th century 1 cloth and marbled paper. (? for provenance b.)
a. pencil note bibliographical reference ? 19th century Spanish
b. label James Mavor, University of Toronto.
The Commentaries, which surround the text in conventional scholastic form, have not been conflated, but are printed alternately and, while that by Antonius appears first, the text by Ubertinus sometimes runs over from the previous page.

16. SENECA, Lucius Annaeus
Tragediae Senece cum commento [by Gellius Bernardinus Marmita].
Venetiis, per Lazarum Isoarda de Sauiliano, (12 Dec. 1492).
BOUND (2) after TERENTIUS AFER. 1494 no. 20 q.v.
Marmita's commentary was first published by Antonius Lambillon and Marinus Saracenus in Lyons on 28 November 1491, the whole amounting to 240 leaves. Soardi is much more economical, taking only 140 leaves. The admonitory line in the colophon was printed separately after the rest had been completed, perhaps being hand-stamped, suggesting that he started work before applying for the copyright privilege.

17. MARTINUS [STREPUS], Polonus, O.P.
Margarita decreti seu tabula martiniana decreti.
Argentine, [Printer of the Casus Breves Decretalium? Georg Husner,] (1493).

[Freiburg im Breisgau, Kilian Fischer,] (1494).
BOUND (2) after AUGUSTINUS De civitate Dei. 1494 no. 18 q.v.

Comoediae ... cum commentis, videlicet Donato et Guidone [and in part by Joannes Calphurnius]. Edited by J. Badius Ascensius.
Venetiis, per Simonem papiensem dictum beuilaqua. Impensis ... Lazari de isoardi, (20 Feb. 1494).
Badius' work was first printed in Paris in 1492. Curiously it printed Terence as prose. Badius made some improvements including printing the text correctly as verse when it was printed by Trechsel in Lyon the following year in a copiously and conscientiously illustrated edition. On 15 February 1493/94 Soardi obtained an exclusive privilege to print and sell Terence with the commentaries of Aelius Donatus and Guido Juvenalis (= Gui Jouenneaux) throughout the Venetian territories, so blocking the import of the edition printed by Trechsel which he used as his copy text. It was sufficiently successful for Soardi to reprint it later that year and twice
more before the end of the century.
315mm German, about 1500, goatskin on wooden boards, blind stamped, author's name in ink on top edge; rebacked (tools not in Kyriss).

c. a few marginalia in two early hands
d. ex Florence 1974.
According to Baudrier, Klein was to reprint the work several times, the last in 1521.

22. BERNARDUS, Claravellensis, Saint
Sermones super Cantica Canticorum. [Edited by Gregorius Britannicus.]
per Angelum Briannicum, Brixie, (28 January 1500).

Index compiled by Bernardinus ex Capitaneis de Landriano.
424mm original unlined vellum and ties, bottom edge lettered in ink with title. Incorrectly bound: the first sheet of signature t follows second.
a. ex Sotheby 2 December 1968 lot 238 (executors of J.I. Davis)-incorrectly catalogued as 1518-via Quaritch commission (collation mark).
This is an extremely rare incunable correctly described in Hain, but not recorded in any major union catalogue.

Sermones ad heremitas et nonnulli ad sacerdotes suos et ad aliquos alios. Et primo de institutione irregularis vite.

b. inscription Hic liber est ... [washed]; on title page
c. Italian bookseller's slip 163
d. ex S. May 1971.
Either the casting off of copy for simultaneous composition was done very badly or the blank pages were left for illustrations which were not ready at the vital moment. The number of abbreviations and other space-saving devices varies in different parts of the text, so it is not certain.

De apprehensione.

a. a few ms notes on the back free end paper ? Latin verse.
The first leaf contains only the single line Albertus Magnus de apprehensione forming what would today be called a half title. Its purpose was not only immediate identification of stored unbound copies but with the blank last leaf, to protect the text before binding. Early owners in times when paper was both expensive and in short supply would have been inclined to utilise such leaves for memoranda as in this copy, so their survival is relatively rare. Collectors have traditionally preferred clean copies so even if they remained in the book to give an insight into the life and community of readers, they may well have fallen prey to book trade efforts to match the tastes of their purchasers.

Basilee, per Michaelem furter, (13.kal. Sept.1510).
155mm modern vellum, for MT.
a. inscription 16-17th century memoranda in Italian beneath colophon
b. ex Sotheby via Quaritch commission.
Furter printed the work in 1494, again in 1495 and 1497, as Quadragesimale de filio prodigo. This was the first edition to name the author, and was produced presumably to keep a steady seller in print. The blocks are closely copied from the 1494 edition. The date in the colophon reads M.D.CCCCCx.xiij. kal' septembris. Furter ceases to be active in 1517 so it cannot be understood as 1523.

b. pink label De la Bibliothèque de Jules Salers, avocat à Moissac, Tarn-et-Garonne
c. ex Sotheby 16 February 1971 lot 302 (property of T.V. Reed) via Quaritch.
The titlepage lists the contents of the book with a subtitle of which the initial letters printed in red form the acrostic word Medium to emphasise the special features of the edition. Lawyers were the last to make the move from folios to portable volumes and the use of Roman letters. This shows the first steps in size reduction. The frontispiece of Justinian in Council is reproduced in Mortimer (French) no. 152 which records earlier use of the cut.

By the end of the 15th century the Latin Bible translated by St Hieronymus (Jerome) had acquired a substantial study apparatus of glosses, annotations and commentaries introduced by mnemonic verses listing names of books, classification of books, diagrammatic summary of contents and table of chapter headings, the layout of which was well established for different formats.

The text thus far presumably went out of print while copies of the rest of the book remained, whether by accidental destruction of stock or because the print run of the original was increased during production is a matter of conjecture.

Pope Innocent VIII asked Agostino Patrizi, his Master of Ceremonies, for this book about 1488. Marcellus's claim to authorship was bogus: he was no more than a bad editor and falsified important portions of the text. When the truth became known representations were made to Pope Leo X to whom Marcellus Archbishop of Corcyra had dedicated it, and he ordered that it should be vigorously suppressed. Copies survived and it went through many editions despite the ban placed upon it.

Isingrin undertook publication of the complete works in Latin translations, re-editing the established editions of Aldus, Venice 1503 and Giunta 1516 and 1527 and adding 4 recently discovered fragments. He asked Conrad Gesner for translations but he was too busy, amongst other things with bibliography, and he entrusted the task to Joannes Ributtus. The results were unsatisfactory: the translation deplorable and of the Republic of Athens he produced no more than a piece. Sebastian Castellion noticed this and undertook to do the job properly. His edition came out later the same year from the Basel press of Brylinger.

According to the DNB this translation was made for Anthony Collins Toland. 50 years after Morehead's death, Toland had at his own expense 50 copies printed by John Humphreys; this presumably means arranged for printing since although known as a publisher he does not seem to have owned a press himself. The woodcut on the titlepage is known in a book (A. Furetiere's Dictionnaire universel...;) printed at The Hague in 1727 by Pierre Husson, Thomas Johnson and others (copy in British Library), but it seems probable that the book was printed in London.

Memoires de la vie du Comte de Gramont, 1713 with the false imprint A Cologne, Chez Pierre Marteau (?for Leyden) incorporates some of de Gramont's reminiscences. He was not known as an author though he was renowned as a brilliant talker; it was in fact the work of his brother-in-law. Hamilton makes use of his own intimate knowledge of the English court (some from time when Gramont was in France), and presents his sister in a most favourable light in contrast both to the discreditable supposed author (cheating at cards) and the other women of the Court. The translation of what has been regarded as a masterpiece of French literature is careless, and coyly substitutes dashes for names spelt out in the original.

The smaller Paper at 2d. per Sheet amounting to 06 14 00
Received for the first Payment 02 02 00
Remain to pay 04 12 00
The large Paper at 3d per Sheet, amounting to10 01 00
Received for the first Payment 03 03 00
Remain to pay 06 18 00
The consortium of booksellers used three printers perhaps according to their abilities to deal with particular difficulties. The second volume would have been the most demanding because of the greater number of illustrations and text containing a substantial amount of arabic, greek, hebrew and red printing. There must have been a general plan, but as far as numbering is concerned it was interpreted differently: the treatment of blanks and half titles is not consistent and none of the printers is faultless. The errors of Wood (v3) are consistent with simultaneous setting and printing on more than one press.

Both this and the first edition, which came out earlier the same year, were issued anonymously.
An ink note on the titlepage supplies the name Mr. Madden, but the name is more usually spelt Madan. It is recorded amongst his works in the DNB from which it is evident that most of his writings were issued anonymously. Although he was already better known as a preacher when this book was published he had been a practising lawyer when inspired by Wesley to change his life. The book occasioned Sir Samuel Romilly's Observations on a late publication, intituled 'Thoughts on executive justice' London 1786 which together showed a move towards humane and rational penology, although reform of the law along the implied lines was not to come about until much later.

a. MT pencil notes supply from 10th edition, 2v, 1753 subscriptions to prefatory poems and indicate omissions.
Dated [1796] on the evidence of the plates. The text was many times printed, but copies scarce, as is often the case with small popular books. The British Library acquired in 1862 a later edition catalogued as [1799], the ascription deriving from a so-dated engraved plate.
That edition compresses and reorders the text necessitating alteration of placing and references on the 1796 plates otherwise as above.

167mm Worn calf backstrip, variant title page on upper board, series title on lower board. A used copy with foxing.
The British Library's earliest (which has wrappers bound in) was not acquired until 1942.
It is the second edition printed for Harris and Son by H. Bryer, 1822. Apart from having the plates hand coloured it is apparently a straight reprint, without in this used copy the advertisement leaf. Campe was a most influential writer of educational texts for children of which this translation of Gemälde des Nordens was the most popular. The copy of the 1st edition recorded in the NUC, 'some plates handcoloured', also has pp71-2 damaged: the heart-rending exemplary account of self-sacrificing risk to save wounded companions on breaking ice was apparently too much for more than one 19th century child.
