    (27 cm), [232] pp., illustrations (many in colour). 100 items. Price list loosely inserted. Publisher’s printed wrappers. - A catalogue “of unusual grandeur, and dedicated in rather odd Latin by the firm ‘Nobilissimo ac Magnanimo Nicolao Schrenckio à Notzingen’… It included three early illustrated books, the Sorg 1478 Alexander bound with Historia Septem Sapientium, the 1491 Schatzbehalter and one of only two known copies of Historie von vier kaufleuten ([Leipzig: Gregorius Böttiger (Werman)] 1495) at Sfr225,000 the most visibly expensive item. But the Basel 1494 Columbus letter, in armorial calf for the ubiquitous Benoît le Court, and the printer Nicolaus Episcopius’s copy of Politiano Omnia opera (Aldus, 1498) in contemporary binding were marked ‘price upon request or sold’, as was a Lyon 1571 Dante bound for Pietro Duodo” (from a notice in The Book Collector, Summer 2006, pp.247-248).

    (21 cm), 307 (5) pp., illustrations. 435 items; priced. Publisher’s printed wrappers. - A catalogue of “435 books printed before 1646, no mean achievement these days. Among them were another fête book, Albicante Trattato del intrar in Milano di Carlo V 1541 (CHF48,000), the 1478 Sorg Alexander in contemporary blind-stamped calf (CHF192,000), and a coloured Bock Kreutterbuch 1577 (CHF78,000) with Brunschwig Liber pestilentialis 1500 (CHF150,000). There was a second edition of Copernicus (CHF170,000), and a long run of Erasmus, with first German Moriae encomium 1534… An interesting curiosity was a pair of arabesque woodcut book-wrappers on saffron-dyed but unwatermarked paper, apparently printed at Augsburg in 1482 and if so the oldest such survival” (from a notice in The Book Collector, Summer 2007, p.254). ¶ Good, unmarked copy.
