        Le Portulan contenant la description tant des Mers du Ponent [sic] despuis le detroict de Gibeltar [sic] iusques

      1577 - Extremely rare Portulan for the Mediterranean and the Levant, by Cadamosto, who explored the coast of Africa in 1455. 1577. Aix en Provence. Pierre Roux. 4to. 2 ff., 218, 1 ff. Modern vellum over stiff boards. A very copy overall, small wormholes to first leaves, lightly browned. 24,000 $ Extremely rare first French edition of the Portolano del Mare, usually attributed to Cadamosto (Ca da Mosto), a Venetian traveller under the service of Henry the Navigator, who discovered Cape Verde in 1455-56. The Portolano was first published in 1490, and subsequent editions were printed in the 16th century (first in 1528), often with the Consulate, and in an abridgment format, this edition is much larger, includes the full original contents, and possibly more; this is the first time the work, a virtual navigation guide to the Mediterranean and Middle East, is translated and published in French (the translation prepared by Gaspard Carentenne). The 1490 edition is virtually unobtainable, and only later Italian editions, in their abridged form appear to be common, this first French edition is exceedingly rare. It contains sailing instructions through the Mediterranean, from Gibraltar to the Levant, and was probably compiled by Alvise Cadamosto. Cadamosto, or Ca da Mosto (1432 – 1488) was a Venetian navigator and explorer in the service of Portugal

I Novissimi, dal latino Quattuor Novissima, secondo la teologia cattolica rappresentano gli ultimi quattro eventi che accadranno all'Uomo al termine della vita: la Morte, il Giudizio, Il Paradiso o l'Inferno. Le quattro incisioni, di formato ovale, sono tutte basate su disegni del celebre artista fiammingo Jan van der Straet, noto come Stradanus. Dopo aver completato la propria formazione ad Anversa, nel 1545 partì alla volta dell'Italia, ma mantenne sempre rapporti con la città di provenienza, inviando i suoi disegni che, tradotti in incisioni, venivano pubblicati soprattutto da Philips Galle. Nel 1577, il maestro di H. Goltzius, Dirck V. Coornhert, presentò il suo allievo a Galle: questa suite, dunque, è tra le prime opere dell'artista olandese. Ciascuna scena è spiegata dai versetti in latino che la circondano, presi dalla Prima Lettera di S. Paolo Apostolo ai Corinzi e/o dal Vangelo secondo Matteo. La PRIMA TAVOLA della serie, inscritta in lastra, in basso nell'immagine, ""Johannes Stradanus invetor/Phls Galle Excud."", raffigura La resurrezione dei morti, così come descritto nei due versetti che circondano l'immagine: "in momento in ictu oculi in novissima tuba canet enim et mortui resurgent incorrupti et nos inmutabimur" (Corinzi, 15.52) ""in un istante, in un batter d'occhio, al suono dell'ultima tromba. Essa infatti suonerà e i morti risorgono incorruttibili e noi saremo trasformati"". "Et mittet Angelos suos cum tuba, et voce magna: et congregabunt electos eius a quatuor venyis a summis caelorum usque ad terminos eorum" (Matt. 24.31) ""Egli manderà i suoi angeli, con una grande tromba, ed essi raduneranno i suoi eletti dai quattro venti, da un estremo all'altro dei cieli"". Nella parte superiore dell'immagine, la venuta di Cristo in gloria, tra Santi e Beati, è accompagnata dagli angeli che suonano le tube; sulla terra, i morti risorgono dalle loro tombe. L'umanità è rappresentata principalmente dalle tre figure femminili in primo piano, che rispecchiano in pieno lo stile manierista, con le teste piccole e i corpi allungati. La SECONDA TAVOLA, inscritta Johannes Stradanus invetor/ Phls Galle Excud, , illustra la Divisione tra Beati e Dannati, un angelo separa i Beati dai Dannati che, presi dal rimorso e dalla vergogna delle azioni cattive commesse, nascondono i volti tra le mani, secondo i versetti: "Unusquisque mercedem accipiet secundum suum laborem" (Corinzi 3.8) Ciascuno riceverà la propria ricompensa secondo il proprio lavoro "Congregabuntur ante eum omnes gentes, et separabit eos ab invicem sicut pastor segregat oves ab haedis" (Matt. 25.32 ) E saranno riunite davanti a lui tutte le genti, ed egli separerà gli uni dagli altri, come il pastore separa le pecore dai capri Nella TERZA TAVOLA, inscritta Ioha Stradanus inven/ Henricus goltz. Sculp - la sola lastra a recare la firma di Goltzius nel primo stato, si mostrano I Beati accolti in Paradiso dagli angeli. Tre i versetti latini che corrono intorno: "Quod oculus non vidit nec auris audivit nec in cor hominis ascendit quae praeparavit Deus his qui diligunt eum" (Corinzi, 2.9) Quelle cose che occhio non vide, né orecchio udì, né mai entrarono in cuore di uomo,Dio le ha preparate per coloro che lo amano. "Venite Benedicti patris mei possidete paratum vobis regnum a costitutione mundi" (Matt. 25.35) Venite, benedetti del Padre mio, ricevete in eredità il regno preparato per voi fin dalla fondazione del mondo. "tunc iusti fulgebunt sicut sol in regno Patris eorum" (Matt. 13.43) Allora i giusti splenderanno come il sole nel regno del Padre loro Nella QUARTA TAVOLA, inscritta Iohannes/Stradanus Inve e Phls Galle excud, i Dannati scendono agli Inferi; alcuni sono tormentati da mostri, altri incatenati e trascinati via; da notare la posa della figura a sinistra, che è una crocifissione capovolta. Intorno, i versetti: "Et inutilem servum eicite in tenebras exteriores: illic erit fletus et stridor dentium" (Matt. 25.30) E il servo fannullone gettatelo fuori nelle tenebre; là sarà pianto e stridore di denti "Discedite a me maledicti in ignem aeternum, qui paratus est diabolo, et angelis suis" (Matt. 25.42) Via, lontano da me, maledetti, nel fuoco eterno, preparato per il diavolo e per i suoi angeli Splendide prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva, due lievissime ossidazioni sulla tavola una, e una piccola sulla tavola 4, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione." The Four Last Things Complete series of four engravins, 1577 circa. After drawings by Jan van der Straet, lat. Johannes Stradanus. Examples in the first state, with the address of Philips Galle. The Four Last Things, according the Christian eschatology, are the standard four events that conclude the Apocalypse: are Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell. The suite is based on drawings by Jan van der Straet, lat. Johannes Stradanus, who trained in Antwerp and left Flanders for Italy in 1545. He evidently maintained contatcts with Antwerp throughout his carrer, sending a stream of designs for engravings that were published primarily by Philips Galle. Among these was the suite of the Four Last Things. In 1577 Goltzius's teacher, Dirck V. Coornhert, introduced him to Galle. These are therefore among Goltzius's earliest works. Each round plate bears, around the circumference, Latin inscriptions from the 1 Corinthians and/or from Matthew that explain the scenes. The PLATE 1 - The Raising of the Dead. Lettered below 'Johannes Stradanus invetor. / Phls Galle Excud.' Around the image two verses: 1 Cor. 15 32; Matt. 24:31. Christ sits in glory with trumpeting angels above; below, a shrouded skeleton becomes animated and various men and women look up and pray 2. THE SEPARATION OF THE BLESSED AND THE DAMNED. On the bottom 'Johannes Stradanus inventor. / Phls Galle Excud'; Around the image: 1 Cor. 3.8; Matt. 25:32. Christ seated on the clouds amongst Saints, an Angel beneath with raised hands separates the blesseds upon the left and the damned to the right, tormented by monsters. 3. THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED INTO HEAVEN. Signed on the bottom left 'Ioha Stradanus inuen / Henricus Goltz / Sculp.'; Around the image: 1 Cor. 2.9; Matt. 13:43 and Matt. 25.35. This is the only one plate of the serier bearing Goltzius' signature in the first state. The blessed are raised towards the sky, where Christ sits amongst his Saints. 4. THE DESCENT OF THE DAMNED INTO HELL Signed bottom left: 'Iohannus / Stradanus Inue', bottom center:'Phls Galle Excud' . Around the image, two Latin verses:Matt. 25:30 and 25:42. The damned are forced into hell, tormented by monsters. The pose of the figure on the left is a mocking inversion of the crucified Christ. B. Barryte: "To render the complexities of Stradanus's composition, Goltzius created a complex web of hatching and cross-hatching to produce the tonal variations that convey spatial relationships as well as the fullness of the bodies. The lines are incised with almost mechanical precision, revealing the technical mastery that would blossom into unparalleled virtuosity" Good examples, printed on contemporary laid paper, two small and light stains on the plate 1 and one light stain on plate 4, otherwise in excellent conditions.

        Peripilus Ponti Euxini & Maris Erthræi. Historici et Philosophi Ponti Euxini & Maris Erythræi Periplus, ad Adrianum Caesarem..

      Classical Authors: Genevæ- Geneva/ Lugduni- Lyon Euststhium Vignon / Bartholemæum Vincentium. 1577. [4] map[8] pp109 [12.]Blank; &: [8][10] pp109 [2][6]. First separate edition of works attributed to Arrian of Nicodemia which appeared simultaneously at Geneva and Lyons in 1577 with the translation and commentary of Johann Wilhem Stucki. This example has the Geneva imprint of the Ponti Euxini and the Lyons imprint of the Maris Erythræi. The texts of both works were first published by Froben in 1533 in the anthology Arriani & Hannonis periplus. Plutarchus de fluminibus & montibus. Strabonis epitome. The woodcut map of the Black Sea is the first printed map of the sea, it is decorated with ships, monsters and mermen. The Peripilus Ponti Euxini takes the form of a letter, from Arrian to the Emperor Hadrian in Rome, who was particularly attached to geographical research and had visited in person a large portion of his extensive dominions. It contains an accurate topographical survey of the coasts of the Euxine (Black Sea), from Trapezus to Byzantium, and was written probably while Arrian held his office of legate of Cappadocia, a short time before war broke out against the Alani; and it was doubtless at the same time that he drew up his instructions for the march of the Roman army against the barbarians, which are found in a short but imperfect fragment annexed to the Techne Taktika, written, as he states himself, in the twentieth year of the reign of the emperor, and containing, after a brief account of former writers on the same subject, a description of the order and arrangement of an army in general. Its purpose was to inform the emperor of the "lay of the land" and provide him with necessary information such as the distances between cities and the locations that would provide safe harbor for ships in a storm in the eventuality that Hadrian should mount a military expedition to the region. According to Gibbon's epigrammatic expression in his 42nd chapter, the Periplus contains "whatever the governor of Cappadocia had seen from Trebizond to Dioscurias; whatever he had heard, from Dioscurias to the Danube; and whatever he knew, from the Danube to Trebizond." Thus, while Arrian gives much information upon the south and east side of the Euxine, in going round the north shore his intervals become greater, and his measurements less precise. The second work the Periplus Maris Erythræi though for many years attributed to Arrian is now believed to be by an unknown author. The text has been ascribed to different dates between the 1st and 3rd centuries AD, but a mid-1st century date is now the most commonly accepted. A Greco-Roman periplus, written in Greek, describing navigation and trading opportunities from Roman Egyptian ports like Berenice along the coast of the Red Sea, and others along Northeast Africa and the Sindh and South western India, it is clearly a firsthand description by someone familiar with the area and is nearly unique in providing accurate insights into what the ancient European world knew about the lands around the Indian Ocean. One historical analysis, published by Schoff in 1912, narrowed the date of the text to 60 AD Though redating the document from 1912 to a single year roughly 2000 years earlier might be considered remarkable by modern standards, a date of 60 AD nevertheless remains in perfect agreement with present-day estimates of the middle of the 1st century AD .Schoff additionally provides an historical analysis as to the text's original authorship,and arrives at the conclusion that the author must have been a "Greek in Egypt, a Roman subject." By Schoff's calculations, this would have been during the time of Tiberius Claudius Balbilus (who coincidentally also was an Egyptian Greek). John Hill maintains that the "Periplus can now be confidently dated to between 40 and 70 AD and, probably, between AD 40 and 50." Schoff continues by noting that the author could not have been "a highly educated man" as "is evident from his frequent confusion of Greek and Latin words and his clumsy and sometimes ungrammatical constructions." Because of "the absence of any account of the journey up the Nile and across the desert from Coptos," Schoff prefers to pinpoint the author's residence to "Berenice rather than Alexandria." Though Schoff is unclear about which of several Berenices he is referring to, it is actually Berenice Troglodytica which is documented, discussed at length and vividly described within the periplus text itself. One peculiarity noted by Schoff while translating from the original Greek version is that "the text is so vague and uncertain that [the author] seems rather to be quoting from someone else, unless indeed much of this part of the work has been lost in copying."

Arrian of Nicomedia (c.86/89 –146/160 AD Latin: Lucius Flavius Arrianus, was a Greek historian, public servant, military commander and philosopher of the Roman period. All we know of Arrian is derived from the notice of him in the "Bibliotheca" of Photius, who was Patriarch of Constantinople in the ninth century, and from a few incidental references in his own writings. We learn from Suidas that Dio Cassius wrote a biography of Arrian; but this work is not extant. Flavius Arrianus was born near the end of the first century of the Christian era, at Nicomedia, the capital of Bithynia. He became a pupil of the famous Stoic philosopher Epictetus, at Nicopolis, in Epirus and afterwards went to Athens, where he received the surname of the "younger Xenophon," from the fact that he occupied the same relation to Epictetus as Xenophon did to Socrates.' During the stay of the emperor Hadrian at Athens, A.D. 126, Arrian gained his friendship. He accompanied his patron to Rome, where he received the Roman citizenship. In consequence of this, he assumed the name of Flavius. In the same way the Jewish historian, Josephus, had been allowed by Vespasian and Titus to bear the imperial name Flavius. Photius says, that Arrian had a distinguished career in Rome, being intrusted with various political offices, and at last reaching the supreme dignity of consul under Antoninus Pius. Previous to this he was appointed (A.D. 132) by Hadrian, Governor of Cappadocia, which province was soon after invaded by the Alani, or Massagetae, whom he defeated and expelled When Marcus Aurelius came to the throne, Arrian withdrew into private life and returned to his native city, Nicomedia. Here, according to Photius, he was appointed priest to Demeter and Persephone. He died in the reign of Marcus Aurelius. The early literary efforts of Arrian were philosophical. including publishing the Discourses of Epictetus and the Encheiridion of Epictetus Besides editing these philosophical works, Arrian wrote many original books. By far the most important of these is the Anabasis of Alexander, or the History of Alexander the Great's Campaigns. This is one of the most authentic and accurate of historical works. Though inspired with admiration for his hero, the author evinces impartiality and freedom from hero-worship. He exhibits great literary acuteness in the choice of his authorities and in sifting evidence. The two chief sources from which he drew his narrative were the histories written by Ptolemy, son of Lagus, and Aristobulus, son of Aristobulus, both of whom were officers in Alexander's army. Indica, is a description of India, and an account of the voyage of Nearchus, and was usually united in manuscripts with the Anabasis, as an eighth book. A valuable geographical work by Arrian has come down to us, a description of a voyage round the coasts of the Euxine. This naval expedition was executed by him as Governor of Cappadocia. The Alani, or Albani of the East, a tribe related to the Massagetae, were threatening to invade his province, and he made this voyage with a view of fortifying the most important strategic points on the coast. From section 17 of the Periplus 1 we find that this voyage must have taken place about the year 131 or 132 A.D.; for the death of King Cotys II., noticed in that passage as just dead, is proved by Böckh's investigations to have occurred in 131 A.D [LIFE AND WRITINGS OF ARRIAN.from E.J Chinnock, 1893] Johannes Guilelmus Stuckius- Johann Wilhelm Stucki; 1542-1607 Swiss Humanist , Academic and Author.

        Dionysii Alex(andrini) et Pomp(onii) Melae Situs orbis descriptio. Aethetici Cosmographia. C.I. Solini Polyistor.

      (Genève), Henricus Stephanus 1577. - 4to. (4) lvs., 158 pp., (8) lvs.; (4) lvs., 47 pp., (1) p. (blank); 152 pp. Printer's device. Contemporary flexible vellum (browned, soiled, tear to spine) with spine label. In 1547 a Dionysius-Edition appeared in Paris under Robert Estienne, which in this edition was considerably expanded by his son; thus in the combination with Mela and Solinus first edition (the Eustathius-Text first appeared in the R. Estienne edition of 1547, the cosmography of Aethicus, a pseudonym, is more commonly found together with the Dionysius work). Dionysios Periegetes came from Alexandria and wrote his Orbis descriptio at the time of Hadrian. This geographical work in verse form was widely read up until the 19th century, The high regard that it was held in in the Middle Ages is seen, for example, through the extensive commentary provided by Eustathius. In the middle of the first century after Christ, Pomponius Mela wrote what is the oldest extant Roman geographical work; this was intensively adopted during the early renaissance (Boccaccio, Petrarca). The Cosmography, issued under the name of Aethicus is probably the work of a writer of the 8th century, and who was close to the court historiographers of the early Carolingian period. Solinus (3. A.D.) compiled a collection of peculiarities very similar to that of Plinius. Free end-paper with hand-written entries. Slightly browned throughout, the outer margins minor stained.

Brescia: F. & P.M. de Marchetti, 1577. First edition of this notable and early work on pediatrics, with five charming engravings in the text, including one of an infant learning to walk using a four-sided wheeled "walker," another of a child being toilet trained, and another of a woman using a breast pump. "[Ferrari] refers to the inadequacy of earlier writings and proposes to deal with the subject in more detail…In his introductory remarks Ferrarius makes the suggestion that a baby from the day of its birth should be placed under the supervision of a man trained in the art of preserving health: a step towards the modern Infant Welfare scheme… "The three parts of his book deal with the management of the nurse and her milk, the care and feeding of the new-born, and diseases of children. He keeps very close to the Greek and Arabian writers…He subdivides skin diseases to a greater degree, and introduces a chapter on burns, a subject which figures frequently in books on affections of children during this and the next two centuries… "His book is illustrated…he figures an appliance for preventing the child from injuring its head…Ferrarius was by no means inclined to regard either moral or physical influences as outside the scope of the physicians."-Still, The History of Paediatrics, pp. 147-51. There are four chapters on eye diseases, two on diseases of the ear, and five on the gums and teeth. Ferrari was a physician who practiced medicine in Verona. Fine copy. ? Durling 1494.

        The history of travayle in the West and East Indies, ... done into Englyshe by Richarde Eden. Newly set in order, augmented, and finished by Richarde Willes. London, Richard Jugge, 1577.

      1577. [10], 466, [6] ll. Narrow 4to (19 x 13.5 cm). With a woodcut celestial map of the South Polar sky in the text, dozens of decorated and mostly pictorial initials plus a few repeats (3 series?, but the main series sometimes has 3 different initials for the same letter of the alphabet). Set in textura types with extensive use of roman and italic. With 14 leaves in a 19th-century facsimile. Gold- and blind-tooled maroon morocco (ca. 1860?), sewn on 3 double cords, in allusive style, each board with a frame of arabesque ornament, with an oval centrepiece containing a 4-lobed, square endless knot. In a modern clam-shell box. First English edition of Ludovico di Varthema's famous account of travels to Arabia, Syria, Persia, Ethiopia, India and the East Indies: a highly important and adventurous narrative including his 1503 visit to Mecca and Medina, the first recorded visit of a European (probably of any non-Muslim) to the Islamic holy cities. "Varthema's Itinerario, first published in 1510, had an enormous impact at the time, and in some respects determined the course of European expansion towards the Orient" (Howgego). It is here combined with various other travel accounts, including some taken from a collection by d'Anghiera translated into English in 1555 as The decades of the newe worlde or West India. - Ludovico di Varthema or Barthema (ca. 1468-1517) sailed from Venice to Egypt in 1502 and travelled through Alexandria, Beirut, Tripoli and Aleppo, arriving in Damascus in April 1503. There he enrolled in the Mameluke garrison and proceeded overland to Khaybar, Medina and Mecca, thereby becoming the first European to enter the two holiest cities of Islam. His travels took him further to South Arabia, Persia, India, Goa, Cochin, and supposedly the Malay isthmus, Sumatra, Banda, the Moluccas, the Spice Islands, Borneo, Java and Malacca. It has often been suggested, however, that he never came further east than Ceylon and that the account of the rest of his journey was assembled from stories passed on by others, but even in these regions much of his information appears to be accurate. Thanks to his knowledge of Arabic and of Islam, Varthema was able to appreciate the local culture of the places he visited. Impressed and fascinated, he describes not only rites and rituals, but also social and geographical aspects and details of daily life. He gives a detailed description of Mecca and the Islamic pilgrimage, and his description of the Hejaz (the west coast of Arabia on the Red Sea, including Mecca and Medina) is especially valuable as it pre-dates the Ottoman occupation of 1520. He finally returned to Lisbon in 1508. - Varthema's account became a bestseller as soon as it appeared in 1510 and went through about twenty editions in various languages in the next fifty years. It certainly provided many Europeans with their first glimpse of Islamic culture and of non-European cultures in general. - With a contemporary manuscript table of contents on the nearly blank leaf preceding the opening of the main text and an occasional marginal manuscript note in the same hand, a mid-19th-century note of prices of various copies (taken from Brunet) on a blank endleaf and the armorial bookplate of Sir Arthur Help (1813-1875), probably the owner who had it bound, on the paste-down. With the first 6 and last 8 leaves in a 19th-century facsimile, but otherwise in good condition, with the head or foot of 4 leaves extended and a few other marginal defects not affecting the text. Binding fine. First English edition of a seminal work on the Middle East. Cordier, Indosinica, col. 105; Cox I, p. 2; ESTC S122069; Howgego, to 1800, V15; STC 649; USTC 508279 (citing ESTC); cf. Blackmer 1719 (1523 Italian Varthema ed.); Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 140 (other Varthema eds. in various languages); not in Atabey.

        Habitus praecipuorum populorum, tam virorum quam foeminarum singulari arte depicti. Trachtenbuch darin fast allerley und der furnembsten Nationen die heutigs tags bekandt sein. Nuremberg, Hans Weigel, 1577].

      1577. Folio (204 x 325 mm). 161 (instead of 220) hand-numbered woodcut plates in early 18th-century colour, mounted on backing paper and missing parts supplemented by hand. Later half calf with 18th-c. spine label. All edges sprinkled in red. First edition of Jost Amman's encyclopedic book of costumes. A strongly fragmented copy, as usual; in the early 19th century, the plates were mounted on backing paper by the owner, the trained landscape painter Jakob Linckh (1786-1841) from Stuttgart (cf. Thieme/B. 23, 254), who also coloured the volume throughout and supplemented all missing parts of the images and even of the text by hand. Linckh, who had studied in Rome, visited Greece in 1810. There he met Byron, who commissioned him to provide the illustrations for Hobhouse's travel book. - Wants 59 plates altogether; the remainder are trimmed closely at the upper edge, and most have severe defects in the lower half. Although the present collection begins with the plate showing the Emperor, as originally issued, the remaining woodcuts follow no apparent order. 20 plates show costumes of Turkey, Arabia, Persia, Egypt, and Ethiopia; others depict Greeks, Russians, and Englishmen. 28 plates show the costumes of today's Italy; German cities are well represented, as are France and Spain, Bohemia and Hungary. Also includes the famous picture of the Brazilian Tupinamba Indians: a man with a crown and belt of feathers, a knife, and a bow and arrow, beside a long-haired woman carrying a baby in a knotted sling. The illustration is an adaptation of two cuts from the "Recueil de la diversité des habits" (Paris, 1562; Antwerp, 1572) by Francois Descerpz, "one of the first likenesses of the Brazilian Indian" (Borba de Moraes). - Title page shows Jakob Linckh's autograph ownership (dated 1825); somewhat later stamped ownership of Anton Franzin (possibly the like-named Tyrolean law clerk, c. 1840) to flyleaf. VD 16, W 1487 (BSB copy incomplete). Lipperheide 7-8 (both copies incomplete). Andresen I, 234. Becker 140. Borba de Moraes II, 373f. Maggs, Bibl. Americana 1-214 ("This book is excessively rare in a complete state").

        San Girolamo penitente nel deserto, con due angeli

      1577. Bulino, 1577, firmato e datato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Jacopo Zanguidi detto il Bertoja. Esemplare nel secondo stato di quattro con l'indirizzo dell'editore Lorenzo Vaccari. Bellissima prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera traduce in rame un dipinto del Bertoja andato perduto, come descritto da De Grazia. In precedenza, l'errata attribuzione dell'iscrizione Iacobus parmen. Inven, aveva fatto risalire l'opera ad un dipinto di Jacopo Palma. Manfred Sellink descrive un solo esemplare di primo stato, a Berlino, andato perduto durante la seconda Guerra Mondiale. Engraving, 1577, signed and dated at lower center. After Jacopo Zanguidi called Bertoja. Example of the second state of four with the address of the publisher Lorenzo Vaccari. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, in very god conditions. The work translates a lost painting of Bertoja, as described by De Grazia. Previously, the erroneous attribution, had traced the work after a painting by Jacopo Palma. Manfred Sellink describes a single copy of the first state, in Berlin, that was lost during the Second World War.
