  • One of the great and extremely rare cimelia of history of hymns and lithurgy. 1) Rosetum: Second edition of the "Spiritual Exercises for the Confraternity of the Rosary". None of the 5 editions of this work in bookauctionrecords and for us not traceable in antiquarian booktrade since 1928! Only one copy of 1504 in RISM (Bavarian State Library). The first edition of 1491, mentioned at Hain, doesn't exist, so the first one was printed 1494 by Peter van Os in Zwolle "only six copies preserved" and of the second edition only one copy preserved (Jean-Marc Warszawski in musicologie dot org). - "The publication of his first work, Rosetum Spirituale, gave Mauburne great renown, and induced Nicholas de Hacqueville, first president of the Parliament of Paris, to invite him to France (1497), to reform the regular canons of the kingdom" (www.biblicalcyclopedia dot com). Johannes Mauburnus [also called Jan Mombaer or Johannes de Bruxellis] (1460-1501) of Brussels was a devotional writer, hymn writer, and religious reformer. After his education at the cathedral school in Utrecht, where he learned Gregorian chant, among other things, he entered the Augustinian canonical convent of St. Agneten near Zwolle, which belonged to the Windesheim Congregation. Here he wrote, among other things, his main work "rosetum exercitiorum" of which six editions were published until 1620. This work contains, spread over several chapters, a series of Latin counterfactuals on Christmas carols widely used at that time. In addition, the "Rosetum" contains a hand psalter with the help of which it was possible to meditate. The "chiropsalterium" is closely related to liturgical music. This work influenced not only the Windesheim reform movement, but also Jacobus Faber Stapulensis (1450 or 1455 - 1536), a pioneer of the Reformation in France. Martin Luther may also have become acquainted with the work at the Augustinian Hermitage in Erfurt. He quotes it in his Psalms Lectures of 1513. - According to the colophon, this edition was edited by Johann Speysers after Mauburnu's death. - The woodcut on sheet 14 shows a mnemonic hand. - RISM II, p. 564; Goff M377; BMC III, 778 f; cf. Wolffheim I, 828. 2) Margarita: Repertory to Gratian's decree in the form of a register, first published around 1483. - 3rd edition. - Martinus Polonus was from Troppau [also called Martin of Troppau, Martin z Opavy], was a Dominican monk and chronicler. He died in 1278 as archbishop of Gniezno. - Goff M328. 3) Concordantiae: Concordance first published in 1482 by the abbot of Neville Monastery in France - Goff J 381.
