1585. Antique print, titled: 'Itala divino foelix Guidone [.].' - The Italian hermit Guido from Ravenna. Description: From the large series of hermits. Ref: NH 998.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Joannes & Raphael Sadeler' after 'Maarten de Vos'. The Sadeler family were the largest, and probably the most successful of the dynasties of Flemish engravers that were dominant in Northern European printmaking in the later 16th and 17th centuries, as both artists and publishers. The Sadelers were descended from "chasers," engravers of armour, from Aalst. Jan de Saeyelleer or Sadeleer had three sons, all usually called "Sadeler":[2] Jan I (1550 Brussels - 1600 Brussels or possibly Venice),[3] Aegidius I (c. 1555 Brussels - c. 1609 Frankfurt am Main) and Rafael I (1560/61 Antwerp - 1628 or 1632). Another Sadeler, Marcus or Marco, was a printer and perhaps publisher who was working in Haarlem in c. 1586-87, and is presumed to be a member of the family, though it is not known where he fits in. Jan I was the father of Justus (c. 1572-c. 1620) and Marcus Christoph (active 1614 to after 1650). Aegidius I was the father of Aegidius II (c. 1570-1629 Prague). Rafael I was the father of Rafael II (1584 - 1627 or 1632), Jan II (c. 1588 - 1665 or later) and Filips (c. 1600, active to 1650). Aegidius II was the father of Tobias, who was active from 1670-75 in Vienna. Maarten de Vos (1532-1603) was an Antwerp painter and draughtsman of the late sixteenth century. His travels to Italy made him adopt the Mannerist style. His designs were very popular and were followed widely. Engraving on laid pap … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition, second issue with a new title page, of this seminal work of art theory by the Italian painter and writer Lomazzo. "Lomazzo, the Milanese painter (1538-1600), wished to give in his theoretical writings the final and conclusive argument for the nobility of painting. By demonstrating that the painter’s primary and most important activity was intellectual, and that that his manual activity was in all cases simply an execution of ideas mentally conceived, he extended to painters the dignity hitherto enjoyed by poets and rhetoricians. By supplying rules for the seven parts of painting that he had logically deduced from careful definition, he "reduced painting to an art," and elevated it to an academic subject. These demonstrations were to result in a single and complete treatise that covered theory, technique, and subject matter. . Lomazzo’s publications were not motivated simply by his vanity as a painter or his ambition as a writer. During the century and a half previous to h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hendrick van CLEEVE
Anversa 1585 - Veduta inserita nella raccolta "Ruinarum varii prospectus, ruriumque aliquot delineationes". Hendrick van Cleve o Cliven III, figlio e allievo di William van Cleve, si trasferisce in Italia nella metà del XVI secolo; oltre ad un dipinto raffigurante una veduta di Roma, datato 1550, realizza un cospicuo numero di disegni che serviranno come modelli per l’opera incisa, realizzata al ritorno ad Anversa e pubblicata da Philip Galle nel 1587. Le vedute, che raffigurano principalmente Roma ma anche altre città europee, recano in basso l’iscrizione "Henri. Cliven. inven." o "Henri Cliven pingebat" che ne attestano la derivazione ma non l'autografia. Incisione al bulino, bella impressione su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A nice view taken from the rare "Ruinarum vari prospectus ruriumq. Aliquot delinationes series". Hendrick van Cleve or Cliven III, son and pupil of William van Cleve, moved to Italy in the second half of the XVI century; besides a painting depicting a view of Rome (1550), he realized a considerable amount of drawing which he afterwards used as preparatory for the engravings he realized in Antwerp and published by Philip Galle in 1587. The views, whose main subject is Rome but there are also other European cities, bear the inscription "Henri. Cliven. inven." or "Henri Cliven pingebat" on lower part, which testify their origin, but not necessarily the fact that he realized them. Engraving, good impression on contemporary laid pape, very good conditions. Dimensioni 245 175mm

His early career is that of a businessman and most of his journeys before 1560 are for commercial purposes. In 1564 he completed a "mappemonde", eight-leaved map of the world, which afterwards appeared in reduced form in the Theatrum. The only extant copy of this great map is in the library of the University of Basle (cf. Bernoulli, Ein Karteninkunabelnband, Basle, 1905, p. 5). He also published a two-sheet map of Egypt in 1565, a plan of the Brittenburg castle on the coast of the Netherlands in 1568, an eight-sheet map of Asia in 1567, and a six-sheet map of Spain before the appearance of his atlas. Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. In 1573 Ortelius published seventeen supplementary maps under the title Additamentum Theatri Orbis Terrarum. Four more Additamenta were to follow, the last one appearing in 1597. He also had a keen interest and formed a fine collection of coins, medals and antiques, and this resulted in the book.In 1573 Ortelius published seventeen supplementary maps under the title Additame … [Click Below for Full Description]

MYDORGE, Claude.
Worldcat (1 copy); for Mydorge: DSB IX, pp. 598-599; Hattab, Descartes on forms and mechanisms, pp. 90-92; Thorndike VII, pp. 593-594. Very rare fourth edition of the commentary of Claude Mydorge (1585-1647) on the Récreations mathématiques by "H. van Etten" (Jean Leurechon). Mydorge corrected the numerous mistakes made by Leurechon in these mathematical diversions and "added several physical experiments as well as comments that he claimed were intended only for his friends". Several of examples and comments by Mydorge, also appear in the works of his friend Descartes, making it "reasonable to conclude that many of the other mechanical problems discussed by Mydorge in this work were also known to Descartes and one can easily imagine Descartes as one of the friends participating in the discussions of these problems alluded to in the prefatory remarks" (Hattab).The "diversions" consist of numerous problems for which a mathematical solution is presented, most of them illustrated by a woodcut. For instance, Mydorge (following Leurechon) informs the reader how to make water in a glass boil without fire, "to make a door open from both sides; to build a bridge all round the earth which will not fall when its supports are removed; to keep all the water in the world in the air without a single drop falling to earth". The third chapter, on fireworks, contains even more spectacular problems, such as "if all the gunpowder in the world were put in a globe of glass or paper and set on fire all at once, what would happen? Nothing, since the pressure would be equal in every direction" (Tho … [Click Below for Full Description]

LE MOYNE, Jacques (1533-1588)
United Kingdom, 1585. The extraordinary career and oeuvre of the Huguenot artist Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues-the first European artist to visit the new world-have only relatively recently been defined and described. The varied circumstances of his artistic production must surely be unique in the history of art; although large periods of his career are undocumented, he appears to have worked as a court artist in France under Charles IX, is known to have traveled to Florida in 1564 as official artist and cartographer in the ill-fated French attempt to establish a colony there, and to have ended his career as a celebrated botanical artist in Elizabethan London. Until well into the present century, our knowledge of Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues's artistic endeavors was extremely limited and largely confined to the footnotes of inaccessible ethnographic bibliographies. In 1922, however, Spencer Savage, librarian of the Linnean Society, made a discovery that opened the way to the subsequent definition of Le Moyne as an artistic personality; he recognized that a group of fifty-nine watercolors of plants contained in a small volume, purchased by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1856 solely for its fine sixteenth-century French binding, were in fact by Le Moyne. Savage's publications relating to this discovery prepared the way for subsequent attribution to the artist of other important groups of drawings and watercolors, the most notable being held by the British Museum and the Oak Spring Library, Virginia. The present work is most comparable to those by Le Moyne in the British Museu … [Click Below for Full Description]

VIMERCATO, Giovanni Battista.
Riccardi I, B-col. 603; Sotheran 15399; Ist. Cent. Cat. Unico (3 copies, 1 possibly a variant). Rare last edition of one of the most popular and best illustrated 16th-century accounts of sundials and their manufacture, with a new chapter describing and illustrating a moondial. After briefly explaining the principles and the various kinds of sundials, it discusses their manufacture. Included are horizontal and wall sundials, and the affect of the location. The last chapter, apparently unique to the present edition, is devoted to the moondial, a sort of nocturnal for telling time at night, but using moonlight rather than the position of the stars. The three large folding plates (about 32 x 38 cm) and the dozens of large woodcuts provide numerous diagrams to aid the reader in both understanding and constructing sundials.

Edited by Henry Beveridge, Esq. Period calf rebacked with five raised bands, modern morocco label; (hinge splitting affecting first gathering, title in facsimile, slightly browned, lacking final blank). Period pen trials on the final verso leaf varying the phrase “For if thou” possibly beginning proverb. 1585 English translation of Calvin's Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles; plentiful in spiritual gifts for the common good. Calvin's Commentary was “faithfully translated” into English by Christopher Fetherstone, a student of Divinity; this forms the basis of the Calvin Translation Society's edition. John Calvin, the father of modern reformed theology, was after Martin Luther a premiere leader in the Protestant movement. One of the goals of Calvin's reformed thought was to unite a people with a sense of community and concern for one another – he did especially by commenting on the imperative parts of the Gospel which motivated readers to contribute generously to common interest. The present commentary on the Acts of the Apostles is more historical than doctrinal; and hence does not contain so much profound theological discussion as some of Calvin's other Commentaries. The leading topic is the progress of the Gospel under the inspired teachers to whom its first propagation was entrusted and the Constitution of the Apostolic Church, including privileges enjoyed by its members. … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Lomazzo, the Milanese painter (1538-1600), wished to give in his theoretical writings the final and conclusive argument for the nobility of painting. By demonstrating that the painter's primary and most important activity was intellectual, and that that his manual activity was in all cases simply an execution of ideas mentally conceived, he extended to painters the dignity hitherto enjoyed by poets and rhetoricians. By supplying rules for the seven parts of painting that he had logically deduced from careful definition, he "reduced painting to an art," and elevated it to an academic subject. These demonstrations were to result in a single and complete treatise that covered theory, technique, and subject matter. ...
