Silogr. a piena pag. al f.II v. raffig. le Belle Arti; marca tipogr. al tit., grandi iniziali silogr., car. tondo. Dedica in forma di sonetto agli artisti fiorentini da parte di Piero Capponi. Prima edizione di quest'opera rara ed importante, una delle fonti più stimate per la storia dell'arte, annoverata dalla Crusca fra i testi di lingua. L'opera prende il titolo dal nome della villa in Val d'Ema, nei dintorni di Firenze, ove si svolgono le conferenze o i dialoghi sull'arte e gli artisti, fra quattro gentiluomini fiorentini: il patrizio Bernardo Vecchietti, proprietario della villa, ed i suoi ospiti, lo scultore Rodolfo Sirigatti, Baccio Valori e Girolamo Michelozzi. Il padrone di casa mostra ai suoi invitati la sua splendida collezione: disegni di Michelangelo, Leonardo, Cellini; dipinti di Botticelli ed Antonello da Messina ed una stanza zeppa di bronzi e gruppi marmorei del Gianbologna. La discussione inizia dalle teorie e dalle tecniche delle Belle Arti (libri I-II) e continua con cenni generali di storia dell'arte greca fino al tardo Rinascimento, trattato ampiamente. Può considerarsi una sorta di continuazione delle Vite del Vasari ed uno dei testi più importanti per la conoscenza delle idee correnti sull'arte nell'ambiente fiorentino del tempo, sul Manierismo italiano in generale e per la quantità di notizie su un gran numero di artisti, specie quelli più vicini all'autore, quali Tintoretto, Veronese, i Ba … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lomazzo, Giovanni Paolo.
Milano, Paolo Gottardo Da Ponte, 1584. 4to. (40), 700 (but: 698), (2) pp. With armorial title woodcut and half-page woodcut portrait on fol. B1. Contemporary full vellum with marbled edges. Second edition, the earliest one obtainable and usually considered the first altogether (a single copy of an edition published by Da Ponte in 1582 has been discovered in the Biblioteca della Collegiata S. Pietro Apostolo in Broni near Pavia). The principal work of the Milan artist and theoretician of art, Giampaolo Lomazzo, has been called "the most complete treatise on the art theory, design, and iconography of the Mannerist period" (Arntzen/R.); indeed, "the true Bible of Mannerism" (cf. Schlosser). Purposefully divided into the mystical number of seven books, Lomazzo's treatise describes first proportions (with a discussion of Dürer, who was much-received in Italy), then the expression of feelings, colours, light and shade, linear perspective, and practical painting; the seventh and final book treats matter and substances, touching upon - and greatly expanding on - Armenini. "These last two chapters are of the greatest importance for understanding the essence of Mannerism, providing quite simply one of the most extensive accounts" (ibid.). - Some occasional browning and waterstaining near beginning; slight paper flaw to fol. E3 (not affecting legibility). Numerous errors in pagination; quire Y jumbled but complete. A small perforation to the spine; textblock curled. Old ownership on front flyleaf obliterated in ink.

Modern armorial bookplate of Bibliotheque I.G. Schorsch on the front pastedown. This is Ruscelli’s important work treating imprese, the popular symbolic device of the Renaissance. First published in 1572, this 1584 edition by Senese in Venice is regarded as the most complete version. It is illustrated with nearly 200 impresa of illustrious men, aristocrats, and leaders of Europe, as well as many of the leaders in the Italian city-states at that time. Each device is accompanied with a biography of the subject, their motto, and a heraldic engraving for that line. As a later theorist of impresa, Ruscelli built upon the work of his predecessors like Andrea Alciato and Paolo Giovio. His … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stefano BONSIGNORI
Ancona. Acquaforte e bulino, 1584, firmata e datata in lastra in basso. Esemplare nel terzo stato di tre con l’indirizzo di Giacomo De Rossi. Magnifica prova, stampata su nove fogli di carta vergata coeva da unire, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Uno dei due fogli centrali è in facsimile. Rarissima pianta murale della città, nella sua edizione definitiva. Con questa veduta Firenze conferma il suo ruolo di primo piano nella storia dell'iconografia urbana europea. Si tratta del secondo prototipo attraverso cui la sua immagine si diffonde, prima in Italia poi all'estero. L'autore è il monaco olivetano Stefano Bonsignori, cartografo e cosmografo di Francesco e Ferdinando I, mentre l'incisore è Bonaventura Billocardo, orefice fiorentino. Il titolo Nova pulcherrimae civitatis Florentiae topographia accuratissime delineata si trova in alto, al centro; sempre in alto, a sinistra, è la rosa dei venti con al di sotto una colonna di richiami riguardanti la fortezza da Basso e una carta dell’emisfero occidentale; a destra è collocato lo stemma mediceo. La veduta conserva la prospettiva Sud-Ovest della tradizione iconografica fiorentina, Grazie all'accurato lavoro di rilievo preliminare, nell'immagine è possibile definire in modo particolareggiato architettura, ambiente e paesaggio. Nonostante la scientificità della restituzione grafica, l'autore comunque non rinuncia a sottolineare il valore simbolico di alcuni edifici e luoghi urbani, evidenziati grazie a fuori scala o visioni frontali. Nel 1594 appare una nuova stampa dell'immagine, fatta eseguire dal libraio senese Gi … [Click Below for Full Description]

La prima di tre tirature di questa importante edizione che, per l'aggiunta di diversi studi e commentari di vari astronomi (alcuni pubblicati per la prima volta), è molto più ampia delle precedenti composte per lo più da 50 - 70 carte (prima edizione: 1524). Ortroy, Apian, 59. Adams A - 1286. DSB I, pp. 178 - 179: «Apian was a pioneer in astronomical and geographical instrumentation... (his) first major work, Cosmographia, was based on Ptolomy. Starting with the distinction between cosmography, geography, and chorography, and using an ingenious and simple diagram, the book defines terrestrial grids; describes the use of maps and simple surveying; defines weather and climate; and provides thumbnail sketches of the continents. In its later form, as modified by Gemma Frisius, the Cosmographia was one of the most popular texts of the time...» The first of three issues of this greatly enlarged edition (earlier editions have about 50 - 70 leaves only): " … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Astley, John).
1584. 4to. (8), 79, (1) pp. With woodcut headpiece on t. p. and initials. 19th century orange-red crushed morocco by Riviere with leading edges gilt and elaborate gilt inner dentelle, rebacked. All edges gilt. The exceedingly rare first edition of one of the earliest English treatises on horsemanship, derived in part from Xenophon, Federico Grisone's "Ordini di cavalcare", and other authors, and in part from Astley's own experience. This is, in fact, the first translation into English of Xenophon's treatise "Peri hippikes" ("On horsemanship"). - The publication of Astley's "Art of Riding", perhaps his single most lasting achievement, came late in his life as an Elizabethan courtier. Here, he relays the doctrine of the Italian riding schools as he and other Gentleman Pensioners understood it, particularly on training the horse to respond to the hand. Astley was on friendly terms with Thomas Blundeville, whose Grisone translation two decades earlier counts as the first treatise on horsemanship to be published in English. - First three leaves slightly browned, with the upper right corner of each leaf imperceptibly restored from another copy; a closed tear to f. A4. Altogether a remarkable clean and crisp copy in an English master binding. The Fitzwilliam-Gloucester copy, bound with a common companion piece, Claudio Corte's "Art of Riding" (also published by Denham in the same year) commanded £14,400 at Christie's in 2006.
