Lot n° 9 - THE BOOK CONTAINING THE FORM AND WAY OF THE GENERAL JUDGMENT OF GOD AND THE IOYES OF PARADISE. Rouen, Guillaume Gaullemier for Robert Mace, s.d. (circa 1500). - THE BOOK INTITUATES THE ART OF WELL DIEING with The Consolation of the Right Angle (Angel) at the Hour of Death against the Dyable denfer. Ibid, id, n.d. (c. 1500). 2 books in one volume, in-8 format, half green basane, long title on spine (19th century binding).
Bechtel, A-283 / Brother, II-264 /// (24f.). A-D6 / (16f.). aa-bb6-cc4.
Rare Gothic impressions, on two columns, which seem to have escaped the attention of bibliographers.
The bookshop Robert (or Robinet) Mace officiated in Caen from 1498 until his death in 1506. He was appointed in 1499 Librairie de l'Université to replace Michel Estienne and was the father of a line of booksellers including Richard, Girard and Robert II Mace. He published about fifty volumes which are rare today.
Leaflet A1 of the first volume bears the title in red and black and the curious mark of Robert Mace. On the back is a large wood panel depicting the master and the pupil. On the last page the colophon indicates Cy fine the tract of the art of living well and dying well.
L'Ars moriendi (art of dying well) has been translated and imitated in several languages without the author really being known. It was probably inspired by a treatise by Gerson. It was later supplemented by Ars bene vivendi (the art of living well), which deals with the religious existence of the Christian, the rites, commandments, prayers and sacraments he must follow.
Our edition is not cited by bibliographers. Only Bechtel mentions an edition printed in Rouen for Robert Mace, which it dates from 1507, of which the National Library has an incomplete copy.
The second volume also contains the title on the first leaf with the printer's mark, the same wood on the reverse and the colophon on the last leaf.
Rubbed binding, broken corners, first leaf restored, traces of old angular dampening.

Lot n° 10 - [BOOK OF HOURS FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE 16th CENTURY]. S.l.n.a. (circa 1500). In-8, brown morocco, straight frame on plates made of multiple fillets and a wide gilt roulette with special fleurons, spine with 5 ornamented ribs, inner fillets, gilt (Lloyd) slices.
Lacombe, 55 /// (120f.).
Beautiful Book of Hours printed in Gothic characters, in Latin (except for the last notebook), on parchment - 17.5 x 11 cm. - 26 lines - ruled with red ink.
It does not appear in the main bibliographies (Lacombe, Bohatta, Moreau, Brunet, Pellechet) and has no clues as to the bookseller who published it. Only the almanac devoted to the years 1500 to 1521 allows us to affirm that its date of publication is around 1500.
A printed sentence, on sheet B8, could have allowed us to know for which city it was composed. But this sentence Hore intermetate Dei genitricis Marie secundum usum is completed by hand with the word Parisian written in brown ink. Our research has led us to compare this book of Hours with another one described by Lacombe as number 55
. It is a book of Hours for the use of Paris published around 1497, which he says came out of the presses of Etienne Jehannot. The comparison was fruitful; the copy we present is in all respects similar to the one referenced by the bibliographer. The number of leaves, the distribution of the notebooks, the signatures of the latter, the addition of a small "p" on certain leaves, the number of lines, the printed mentions noted, everything is strictly identical. Only the almanac printed on folio A1 relates to the years 1497-1520, while ours has an almanac relating to the years 1500-1521
. These similarities clearly indicate that these Hours are for the use of Paris, that they come from the workshop of Etienne Jehannot and that they were published around 1500. It is very likely that Etienne Jehannot had to put the unsold copies of his books of hours back on sale by reprinting only the first leaf that he granted to the current year
. This beautiful book of hours is illustrated with 20 large full-page woodcuts and 36 small woodcut vignettes in the text.
The last book is printed in French and contains the Examination of Conscience to be congnoistre à bien se congnoistre composed by Maistre Jehan Quentin, penitentiary of Paris
.a beautiful copy with small and large initials and gold line ends on a blue or red
background.the binding, of perfect quality, indicates by mistake on the spine the printer Vérard. The anatomical man's plate has been scratched at the level of the sex
.sheet A1 a little dirty, 3 last sheets with marks and traces of illegible stamps.

Lot n° 11 - [BOOK OF HOURS PRINTED FOR ROME'S USE]. Paris, Hardouin, n.d. (circa 1515). In-8, black Jansenist morocco, spine with 4 raised bands (spine binding).
Book of Hours printed in round letters, in Latin, on parchment - 18 x 11 cm. - (122 f.) - 23 lines. Text placed in woodcut frames, sometimes repeated.
This Book of Hours is not listed by Brunet, Lacombe and Bohatta. Nor is it included in the Chronological Inventory of 16th century Parisian editions drawn up by Moreau after Renouard.
It contains 18 large figures, 27 small vignettes and a border set in gold and colour. The lettering and a few lines are in gold on a blue or red background.
This Book of Hours is not easy to date because it does not have an almanac, which is common for this type of work.
On examination, it consists of 120 leaves for the A to P sections and 2 additional leaves for two large figures. But it seems that sheet A1 is of the same type as the added sheets, which would imply that if this sheet is added, sheet A1 is in deficit. It is very likely that this missing leaf is the title on the front and the Almanac on the back.
Nevertheless, there remains a fine copy of the printed Book of Hours, here very nicely set in gold and colour.
The binding is rubbed, some dirt without gravity, the figure of the anatomical man is partly erased.

Lot n° 13 - [François PICART or LE PICART]. Propositions, dicts and sentences Containing the graces, fruits, proofs, use and praise of the most sacred and worthy Sacrament of the Altar for those who receive it in state of grace: extracts from several holy Doctors. Paris, Jacques Kerver, 1582. In-8, brown calf, double fillet, special iron with the attributes of the Passion on the first plate, smooth spine decorated, gilt edges (Binding from the XVIIth century).
Bechtel, P-151 et seq. / Brunet, III-993 /// (140f). A-R8-S4.
Rare volume printed in gothic characters by Jacques Kerver who officiated in Paris from 1535 to 1583.
The work is attributed by Bechtel to François Le Picart, doctor of theology at the University of Paris, a preacher who died in 1566. Brunet attributes to him a work whose title is so close that it seems obvious that the one we present is another edition. Bechtel cites two editions of Kerver in 1570 and 1577 but does not mention ours.
Mark of Kerver on the title, 3 small vignettes, 15 medium ones and a large illustration, all woodcut. The 15 medium-sized vignettes illustrate The Fifteen Bloodshed of Our Saviour and Redeemer Jesus Christ. 11 of them are signed with the monogram ILB, probably that of Jean Le Bé.
Set copy.
Rubbed binding with a small lack on the first cover, partly detached title with small lacks on the inside, stain on one page, small lack on the last page.
