        Series of six copper engravings of floral bouquets in vases.

      - [Paris, 1620s]. 245 x 175 mm. Half calf, gilt spine with floral ornaments and red gilt lettered label, marbled boards. An extremely rare suite of very beautiful bouquets in ornamental vases with grotesques, based on an equally rare group of larger prints by Jean Theodor de Bry. The vases are depicted surrounded by insects and other small animals, on a table-top. The plates are numbered lower left from 1 to 6 and the first engraving is signed on the table top in front to the left: 'I. Messager, excudit' and to the right 'I. Pictet Incidit'. The other plates are signed to the left 'I Messager. ex.' (or with minor variations). Each plate has a ribbon below the vase with a Latin inscription. The inscriptions, on the theme of transience, comprise a emblematic text in hexameters based on the six Latin declensions of the word 'Flos', or flower, and involve punning and word play. They translate as follows: 1. The Flower as a mirror of life: no sooner does it flower than it withers with a breath. 6. The quickly changing image of the Flower warns us of the swift passage of time. 3. The tender youth is like a Flower with advancing years. 4. Displaying the Flower [of youth] at the same time he bears the fruit [of maturity]. 2. Oh Flower, thus flowering in the youthful summer. 5. Follow the Flower's lead to a virtuous life. The change in order accords with the original series after which this set has been copied, with the images in reverse. The originals were a series of six larger prints by Jan Theodor de Bry (Liege 1561 - 1623 Frankfurt), produced in Frankfurt-am-Main about 1604 and titled Polyptoton de Flore (The many-sidedness of the Flower). Both the de Bry and the Messager suites are extremely rare. An incomplete set by Messager is in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.Some marginal staining and some glue stains from previous binding, old ms. numbering from a larger collection of bound engravings from which this has at some time been extracted.Literature: Gavin D.R.

Tagli blu. Impresa tipografica in xilografia al frontespizio. Qualche consueta brunitura, restauri al margine inferiore bianco del frontespizio. Un timbro di biblioteca al titolo. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione dell'antologia di oratori greci, latini ed italiani curata da Remigio Nannini; accanto a volgarizzamenti da Dione Cassio, Senofonte, Dionigi di Alicarnasso, Curzio Rufo, Appiano, Tito Livio, Sallustio, Egesippo, Procopio di Cesarea, Saxo Grammaticus (sono incluse alcune traduzioni di brani del "Gesta Danorum" concernenti Amleto, probabilmente la prime versione assoluta in una lingua moderna della fonte storica dell'"Amleto" shakespeariano), Leonardo Aretino, Poggio Fiorentino, Paolo Emilio da Verona, Machiavelli, Bernardo Corio, Agostino Giustiniano, Galeazzo Capella, Paolo Giovio. Curiosa l'omissione dal frontespizio del nome del Machiavelli, i cui brani dalle "Istorie Fiorentine" non sono preliminarmente indicati a causa del sospetto che già avvolgeva le opere dello scrittore fiorentino. Remigio Fiorentino (Remigio Nannini) fu scrittore domenicano vissuto tra il 1521 e il 1581. Gli si debbono traduzioni di classici e del "De Gentibus Septentrionalibus" di Olao Magnus, poesie religiose "Poesie in lode della Madonna", Venezia, 1547), delle "Considerazioni cento civili sopra l'Historie di Francesco Guicciardini" (Venezia, 1582).

        Works. The Woorkes of Geffrey Chaucer, Newly Printed, with Divers Addicions, whiche were Never in Printe Before: With the siege and destruccion of the worthy citee of Thebes, compiled by Jhon Lidgate, Monke of Berie. As in the table more plainly dooeth appere. First issue of the Stowe Edition

      London: John Kyngston for Jhon Wight. Very Good. 1561. Fifth edition, first issue; First. First issue of the Stow Edition with Chaucer's arms dated 1560 and before the second issue woodcut additions. There are two theories regarding the precedence of issues of the 1561 Stowe edition depending on presence of woodcuts in the Prologue; one issue without woodcuts and one with. David R. Carlson ("The Woodcut Illustrations in Early Printed Editions of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales," in Chaucer Illustrated: Five Hundred Years of The Canterbury Tales in Pictures [British Library, 2003]) states (challenging the old orthodoxy of Pforzheimer) "The most plausible explanation seems to be that the printer and publisher of the [Stowe] edition, came into possession of the woodcuts belatedly after most of the press work for the edition had been done. After obtaining the blocks, they ran up a new issue of the beginning of the book, incorporating a "General Prologue" illustrated with woodcut. In all documented cases, the unillustrated [i.e. first]"General Prologue" occurs with a title page showing the Chaucer arms, dated 1560 at the top of the shield. A different title-page, dated 1561, is found in copies incorporating the [woodcut] illustrated General Prologue…." (v. also David R. Carlson, "Woodcut Illustrations of the Canterbury Tales, 1483-1602). More specifically a recent Robert Temple Catalogue adds: "The first three gatherings [in the 1561 second issue] … were entirely reprinted, this being done to permit the inclusion of twenty-two wood-cut illustrations in the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales the signatures running [floret]4 ([floret]iii being mis-signed Aiii), +6, A4, B - I6. instead of the [floret]4, A - I6. of the [first] issue. In the illustrated [i.e. second] issue some damage to the wood-cut frame of the first secondary title is apparent which is not evident in the [first] issue: a crack in the wood extends from the centre of the lower edge, up through the box identifying King Henry IIII to just left of centre of the title box, and another from the top left-hand corner of the title-box, through the box identifying King Henry VII and ending, apparently at a worm-hole, in its top rules. STC, 2nd edition, unaccountably and without assigning a reason, lists these two issues in the reverse order - despite the evidence in the illustrated issue of the later date on the title-page, the obviously interpolated gathering + (which contains the first six illustrated leaves of ten, the rest being in the variant, short, gathering A), and the extended splitting of the wood-block on the title-page to the Canterbury Tales which shows only a slight split at the extreme tail in the [first] printing, and no worm-hole." Professional restoration to the present copy include wash and repair of title page with ancient replacement of top inch and periphery of same not affecting text; repapering of Prologue gutters; new pastedowns & fly papers. All that said, a complete copy without loss of text. Light peripheral worming. Handsomely bound in appropriate period style full ruled English calf, five raised bands, six compartments; morocco title & date labels. This copy was presented by the Durants to Wellesley College (their diminutive blind stamp to the margin of the second leaf) then sold in 1912 to George Herbert Palmer & then to Lewis Kennedy Morse. Folio, 12 3/16 x 8 1/2 inches (310 x 215 mm); [x], ccclxxviii leaves. Divisional title pages of the "Caunterburie Tales" and "Romaunt of the Rose" (both from Edward Hall's 1550 Vnion of the two noble and illustre famelies of Lancastre & Yorke) in ornamental border (McKerrow & Ferguson, 75), showing the ascent of Henry VIII. Large woodcut of the Knight at the head of his tale (recto of B1) flanked by two wood-cuts of pillars re-used from the quarto edition of the 1537 Coverdale Bible. Collation: Floret4; A-I6; K-U6; Aa-Ii6. Kk-Pp6; Q-U6; X-Z6; Aaa-Iii6; Kkk-Uuu[8]. Numerous oddities in foliation (for which see Pforzheimer, 176) though catchwords and signatures remain constant. A handsome & supple folio in sixes copy beautifully printed in fifty-five line, two-column black-letter Gothic. The 1561 Stowe edition is probably the one known to William Shakespeare and Edmund Spenser and presents some nineteen poems here first printed from manuscript sources.

Royal folio (40.5 x 27.5 cm). Engraved title-page with the title in a large oval scrollwork cartouche surrounded by and incorporating dozens of skeletons and skulls of people and animals, 2 full-page engraved portraits (of the dedicatee Ranuccio I Farnese, Duke of Parma, and the author) and 34 full-page anatomical engravings on integral leaves. 17th-century sheepskin parchment.

      Garrison & Morton 286; Krivatsky 2199; LeFanu, Notable medical books, p. 57; Norman 410; Roberts & Tomlinson, pp. 259-263; Wellcome 1333. Beautiful first edition of a ground-breaking work on the anatomy of the vocal and auditory organs, written by the well-known anatomist and surgeon Giulio Casserio (1561?-1616). It was his first publication and contains 2 separate treatises that were issued together, the first on the anatomy of the larynx and the second on hearing and the anatomy of the ear. Although the colophon of the first part is dated 1601 and that of the second part 1600, the second treatise also refers to observations made in 1601. Casserio made some important contributions to the science of the anatomy of the sense organs, particularly the vocal and auditory organs. He based much of his work on zoötomic research and many of the 34 large and beautifully designed engravings show zoötomic subjects, including the vocals organs of a grasshopper, a dog, a rat and a frog. His research covered both the superficial and deep muscles and includes the first precise description of the two cricothyroid muscles.With 3 owners' inscriptions at the foot of the title-page, 2 struck through but partly legible and the third reading "ex libri Francisci Ardinone". With some marginal worm holes and a water stain in the gutter margin of the first 3 preliminary quires and an occasional leaf with browned patches, but still a good copy and with large margins. The binding has some stains, minor abrasions, and repairs to the upper part of the spine, but is also still good. An important and magnificent medical work with spectacular anatomical engravings.

        Della Grandezza della Terra et Dell'acqua

      Venice: Giordano Ziletti, 1561. Small quarto, with woodcut diagrams in the text; minor staining to last (colophon) leaf and a few margins towards end; a very good copy in later patterned boards. The water and the land. A treatise on the globe and a survey of contemporary cosmographical knowledge and methodology by a well-known Italian astronomer and cosmographer. A senior figure in the church, a poet, and a writer on philosophy and science, Piccolomini (1508-1578) was appointed archbishop of Patrasso in 1557 and later archbishop of Siena. Piccolomini's Trattato is of interest to the history of antipodean theories: it was in this book that he most strongly argued his views about the make-up of the earth, contradicting the views associated with Aristotle and Ptolemy that there must be more water than land. His belief that the land mass must be greater than the oceans was more than just a disagreement with the classical writers, as it became a controversy played out in print between Piccolomini and his contemporaries Antonio Berga and Giambattista Bennedetti. Several of the 14 chapters here are devoted to the debate (the last, for example, is headed 'Digressione contra una vana imaginatione d'uno scrittore moderno, con laquale si pensa salvare la terra minore dell'acqua…'). The work contains several substantial references to newly-discovered lands, mentioning the Straits of Magellan along with several other references to the Americas, and discusses the Southern Ocean. Alden notes the 1558 edition of this work, but does not mention this one which has an identical collation.

Originally published in Latin, the translator is Donato Acciaiuoli (1429-1478), whose Italian version was first published in Venice in 1476. Leonardo Bruni (1370-1444) was an Italian scholar and statesman, who served as chancellor of Florence and as spostolic secretary to four popes (1405-1414). His Florentine history has been called the first modern history book (James Haskins in his edition of History of the Florentine People, Harvard University Press, 2010). He was the first historian to write using the three-period view of history: Antiquity, Middle Ages, and Modern, and though his dates were a bit different from those used by modern historians, he laid the foundation for this tripartite view of history, which is secular in nature, even though that may not have been what Bruni intended. He used the phrase studia humanitatis, meaning the study of human endeavors, as distinct from theology and metaphysics. This is where the term humanist comes from. Bruni also translated into Latin many works of Greek philosophy, such as Aristotle and Procopius.

        Works. The Woorkes of Geffrey Chaucer, Newly Printed, with Divers Addicions, whiche were Never in Printe Before: With the siege and destruccion of the worthy citee of Thebes, compiled by Jhon Lidgate, Monke of Berie. As in the table more plainly dooeth appere. First issue of the Stow Edition with Chaucer's arms dated 1560 and without the second issue's added woodcuts

      London: John Kyngston for Jhon Wight. Very Good. 1561. Fifth edition, first issue; First. There are some conflicting theories regarding the precedence of issues of the 1561 Stowe edition depending on presence of woodcuts in the Prologue; one issue without woodcuts and one with. David R. Carlson ("The Woodcut Illustrations in Early Printed Editions of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales," in Chaucer Illustrated: Five Hundred Years of The Canterbury Tales in Pictures [British Library, 2003], edited by William Finley and Joseph Rosenblum) suggests (challenging the old orthodoxy of Pforzheimer) "The most plausible explanation seems to be that the printer and publisher of the [Stowe] edition, came into possession of the woodcuts belatedly after most of the press work for the edition had been done. After obtaining the blocks, they ran up a new issue of the beginning of the book, incorporating a "General Prologue" illustrated with woodcut. In all documented cases, the unillustrated "General Prologue" occurs with a title page showing the Chaucer arms, dated 1560 at the top of the shield. A different title-page, dated 1561, is found in copies incorporating the illustrated 'General Prologue….'" (v. also David R. Carlson, "Woodcut Illustrations of the Canterbury Tales, 1483-1602). A past Robert Temple Catalogue notes a second issue 1561 edition was "…issued with a different title-page, bearing the date 1561, using at head and side borders a wood-cut of King Henry VIII and his court. The first three gatherings in fact were entirely reprinted, this being done to permit the inclusion of twenty-two wood-cut illustrations in the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales the signatures running [floret]4 ([floret]iii being mis-signed Aiii), +6, A4, B - I6. instead of the [floret]4, A - I6. of the [first] issue. In the illustrated [i.e. second] issue some damage to the wood-cut frame of the first secondary title is apparent which is not evident in the [first] issue: a crack in the wood extends from the centre of the lower edge, up through the box identifying King Henry IIII to just left of centre of the title box, and another from the top left-hand corner of the title-box, through the box identifying King Henry VII and ending, apparently at a worm-hole, in its top rules. STC, 2nd edition, unaccountably and without assigning a reason, lists these two issues in the reverse order - despite the evidence in the illustrated issue of the later date on the title-page, the obviously interpolated gathering `+' (which contains the first six illustrated leaves of ten, the rest being in the variant, short, gathering `A'), and the extended splitting of the wood-block on the title-page to the Canterbury Tales which shows only a slight split at the extreme tail in the [first] printing, and no worm-hole." Professional restoration included wash and repair of title page with replacement of top inch and periphery of same not affecting text; repapering of Prologue gutters; new pastedowns & fly papers. All that said, a complete copy without loss of text. Light peripheral worming. Handsomely bound in appropriate period style full ruled English calf, five raised bands, six compartments; morocco title & date labels. This copy was presented by the Durants to Wellesley College only to be sold in 1912 to George Herbert Palmer & then to Lewis Kennedy Morse. Folio, 12 3/16 x 8 1/2 inches (310 x 215 mm); [5], ccclxxviii leaves. Divisional title pages of the "Caunterburie Tales" and "Romaunt of the Rose" in ornamental border, showing the ascent of Henry VIII then down to Elizabeth. Signatures following [I-V] Prologue: A-I6; K-U6; Aa-Ii6. Kk-Pp6; Q-U6; X-Z6; Aaa1-Iii6; Kkk-Uuu[8]. Numerous oddities in foliation following [CCXXIV] though catchwords and signatures remain continuous throughout. Full page woodcut subtitles for "The Caunterburie tales (recto A1)" and "The Romaunt of the Rose (recto Aa1)." Large woodcut of the Knight at the head of his tale (recto of B1). A handsome & supple copy beautifully printed in fifty-six line, two-column black-letter Gothic. The 1561 Stow edition is probably the one known to William Shakespeare and Edmund Spenser and presents some nineteen poems here first printed from manuscript sources.

A selection of reports for 1-50 Edward III (1327-1377), the Book of Assizes, is one of the most important of the Year Books and of unique value to the study of English legal history. As Stanley Milsom has observed, it is the "only collection of reports from the country," that is the only collection of reports from the justices on assize (circuit) rather than in the central courts at Westminster. It is therefore "rich in apparent curiosities" because "it reports processes we do not otherwise see, on circuit, before juries." The first edition was printed in 1514 by John Rastell.

In dem vorliegenden Exemplar ist kein Holzschnittporträt enthalten. Prätorius, Paul, geb. 1521 in Bernau, studirte in Frankfurt a/O., ward Rector in seiner Vaterstadt, dann, wie es scheint, auch eine Zeitlang in Berlin. Dort erwählte ihn Kurfürst Joachim II. 1547 zum Erzieher für seine jung nacheinander zu Erzbischöfen von Magdeburg postulirten Söhne Friedrich (geb. 1530, 1552) und Sigismund (geb. 1538, 1566), in deren Interesse er auch zu diplomatischen Missionen verwandt wurde, wie z. B. 1561 nach Prag an Kaiser Ferdinand, welcher ihm den Adel verlieh. Er starb 1564 oder 1565 in Halle. - Der ihm nahe befreundete, vielleicht verwandte Abdias Prätorius (s. oben) widmete ihm seine Schrift "De phrasibus Ebraeorum" (Mittenberg bei Joh. Lufft, 1561, die Vorrede vom 18. Januar 1557), Georg Sabinus sein Buch "Epigramme"; der Humanist Michel Haslob (s. A. D. B. X, 745) verfaßte: "Praetoriana, sive de vita et obitu Pauli Praetorii", Francof. 1581. - Da ihm aus seiner Ehe nur eine Tochter erwachsen war, so adoptirte er 1562 eines Bernauer Predigers Sohn, Samuel Faber (Schmidt), der 1605 als Bürgermeister in Frankfurt a/O. gestorben ist. Dessen Enkel Johannes P. erhielt 1661 mit der böhmischen Ritterwürde den Namen Praetorius von Richthofen und ward der Stammvater des noch heute blühenden Geschlechtes dieses Namens.

        Opus de arcanis catholicae veritatis [...]. Ad haec, Ioannis Reuchlini de Arte Cabalistica, libri tres.

      Basel, Johann Herwagen, 1561.. (18) SS., 1 w. Bl., 551 (recte: 549), (4), 552-651, (41) SS. Mit 3 Holzschnittdruckermarken. Blindgepr. Schweinslederband der Zeit auf 4 Doppelbünden mit hs. Rückentitel und 2 intakten Schließen. Folio (230:340 mm).. Zweiter Druck bei Herwagen (zuvor 1550); erstmals 1518 in Ortona erschienen. Der Verfasser "vertheidigt den Katholicismus gegen das Judenthum und vertheidigt auch zugleich Reuchlin gegen die Angriffe seiner Zeitgenossen" (Fürst). Galatinos Hauptwerk wurde auf Befehl des Papstes und des Kaisers verfaßt als Antwort auf Reuchlins "Augenspiegel", nachdem die Kontroverse um die Autorität der jüdischen Schriften immer größere Bedeutung annahm. Galatino versuchte, die Kabbala gegen die Juden zu wenden, und suchte darin Beweise für die Wahrheit der christlichen Religion. Der gelehrte Dialog zwischen Capnio (Reuchlin) und dem Inquisitor Jacob van Hoogstraaten ist mit hebräischen Textstellen und Zitaten gespickt. - Am Ende des Bandes steht der Abdruck von Reuchlins berühmter Abhandlung "De arte cabbalistica", erstmals 1517 erschienen aber der Erstausgabe noch nicht beigegeben. Dieses philosophisch-kabbalistische Hauptwerk Reuchlins ist in der Form einer Unterredung zwischen drei Männern geschrieben: Im Gespräch zwischen dem Juden Simon, dem Muslim Marranus und dem Pythagoreer Philolaus, das zu Frankfurt am Main, Simons Wohnsitz, stattfindet, geht es Reuchlin um eine Harmonisierung der Kabbala mit dem Christentum (daher auch die Widmung an Papst Leo. X. - vgl. ausf. M. Brod, J. Reuchlin und sein Kampf [1965], S. 271-311). - Sehr sauberes, außerordentlich wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. Der nahezu tadellose Einband mit schönen Reformatoren-, Tugenden- und Wappen- bzw. Köpferollen; dort im Schild signiert mit dem Monogramm "CH" und von Haebler (I, 168ff.) mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit dem Augsburger Buchbinder Caspar Honeffer zugewiesen. Aus der Bibliothek der Innsbrucker Kapuziner mit entspr. hs. Besitzvermerk am Titel; später in der Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek in Hall/Tirol mit entspr. Titelstempelung. Der kaiserliche Protonotar Florian Waldauf (auch: Baldauf; um 1450-1510; 1495 in Antwerpen Gegenzeichner des Vorvertrags zur habsburgisch-spanischen Doppelhochzeit) und seine Frau Barbara hatten 1501 der Pfarrkirche in Hall eine Marienkapelle, eine Reliquiensammlung und ein Predigtamt gestiftet. Die Stadt Hall als Verwalterin der Waldauf-Stiftung hatte dafür zu sorgen, "das alle jar etliche puecher nach anzaigen des predigers zum predigambt gekauft und in der heiligen capellen liberei an ketten gehangen und versorgt werden"; ferner sollten der Bibliothek Bücher aus den Nachlässen der Prediger und Meßkapläne zukommen. Entgegen der Anordnung Waldaufs wurde die Bibliothek kaum durch gezielte Ankäufe vermehrt, sondern größtenteils durch die zufällige Übernahme von Büchern und Schenkungen, hauptsächlich von Geistlichen, Stiften und Schülern. Der bekannteste Vorbesitzer ist Johannes Eck. "Nach 400 Jahren ihres Bestehens und nur fallweisem Zuwachs schien das Interesse am Fortbestand der Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek als geschlossener Sammlung verlorenzugehen. Obendrein war das Stiftungsvermögen im Ersten Weltkrieg vollends untergegangen. Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde eine unbekannte Anzahl wertvoller Handschriften und Drucke an Privatpersonen in Hall und Umgebung ausgehändigt, um sie vor der Beschlagnahmung durch die Nationalsozialisten zu sichern. Nach Kriegsende wurde jedoch keines dieser Bücher rückerstattet" (Hdb. der hist. Buchbestände in Dtl.). - Sehr selten; seit 1950 kein anderes Exemplar auf Auktionen nachweisbar. - VD 16, C 4616. Adams C 2420. Benzing 102. Goed. I, 416, 20. Fürst I, 314.

        Septentrionalivm Partivm Nova Tabvla

      Venice, Ruscelli, Girolamo, 1561. North Atlantic. "Septentrionalium Partium Nova Tabula". Orig. copper-engraving from G. Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geography. Published in Venice, 1561. This map is a reduced version of the Nicolo Zeno map of 1558. With title above the map. 20,5:26 cm.. Burden: The Mapping of North America, nr. 29 - A map of the northern part of the Atlantic ocean with Greenlad and Iceland. Girolamo Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geographia included newly engraved copperplates by Giulio and Livio Sanuti. The curious fact is that this map is one of two that were engraved on the same plate, printed and than separated for the book. This can be seen in the atlas by the fact that the plate mark of the map runs off the top of the page.

Vor seiner Bekehrung war er 303 p.Chr.n. von Diocletian an den Hof v. Nikomedia (heute: Izmir) berufen worden. Unter Constantin dem Gr. (280/306-37) wird Lactanz - der 'christl.

Lactanz opera, in brillantem Latein geschrieben, sind eine Apologie der christl. Botschaft u. gleichzeitig ein dogmat. System einer christl. Weltanschauung. Sie zählen zu den ganz wichtigen Werken der frühen Väterliteratur; im übrigen sind die 'opera Lactantii' das erste in Italia gedr. Buch (EA: Subiaco 1465) u. Lactanz ist unter den Kirchenvätern der am meisten gedruckte Autor. - Fortsetzung:.

        Abhandlung über die vorzügliche Anwendbarkeit der Bohlenbogen zu hölzernen Brücken, die große Oeffnungen überspannen. Mit 4 gefalt. gest. Tafeln von Schüler nach Funk. Rinteln, gedruckt bey C. A. Steuber, In Commission bey Carl Cnobloch, Leipzig, 1812. Kl.-4to. (24,3 x 19,3 cm). VII S., (1 S. Druckfehler), 88 S. Grüner Umschlag d. Zt.

      . . Einzige Ausgabe. - Funk beruft sich auf das bereits 1561 erschienene Werk "Nouvelle inventions pour bien bastir et a petits frais" des französischen Baumeisters Philibert de L'Orme, in dem dieser die Verwendung von Holzbohlen vorgeschlagen hatte, die aus mehreren Lagen dünner, kurzer Brettstücke zusammengesetzt werden. Er rühmt sich, dieses Verfahren als erster auf den Brückenbau angewendet zu haben u. hält es gegenüber anderen Verfahren für vorteilhafter, wenn sich die Bogenweite nicht über 120 rheinländ. Fuß (ca. 38 m) erstreckt. Nach diesem Verfahren hatte er 1799 bis 1800 in Minden die sog. "Bunte Brücke" über die Weser erbaut (Weite der sechs Öffnungen je 45 Fuß). Eine weitere Brücke erbaute er kurz danach in Rehme (heute Bad Oeynhausen) über die Werra. Vor allem die "Bunte Brücke" wird ausführlich erläutert u. mit anderen Holzbrücken (u.a. von Wiebeking) verglichen. - Die Kupfer mit Ansichten, Aufrissen u. Detaildarstellungen, darunter eine Brücke mit 120 Fuß Spannweite. - Funk (1768-1820) war seinerzeit Strombaumeister der Weser-Division im Königreich Westphalen. Später avancierte er zum Oberbaurat in Berlin. - Stempel u. Bibl.-Vermerke der Fürstl. Bibliothek Fürstenberg, Donaueschingen.
