The first work: [xiv[, 236, [3, verses] pp, and the final blank, lower margin of second leaf cut away with 2 letters of catchword on verso just touched, one or two small brown marks, small repairs to inner margin of title, but a good crisp and clean copy; the second work: 186, [4] pp., including the imprint leaf and the final bank, some slight browning but a good copy; the third work: [xvi\, 93, [1, imprint with large woodcut ornament] pp. plus the final blank, a few blemishes but very good.

Edward Terry
Edward Terry (1590-1660) was an English chaplain and travel writer. In 1615 he sailed to India as a chaplain with the London East India Company. The title page of this 1777 volume states "Reprinted from the Edition of 1655 with Copper-Plates."  The binding is rebacked, preserving the original calf boards.  The rebacking appears to be both expert and vintage, as the spine shows some age as well.  The boards show wear, particularly at the corners, but remain respectably intact.  The contents are impressively clean and bright.  The frontispiece, folding map and three plates are all present as called for. There is a previous owner's bookplate on the ffep.  The only sign of light spotting detected is confined to the blank verso of the frontispiece. "The author accompanied Sir Thomas Roe as his chaplain during the latter's embassy to India 1615-1619; his journal is a valuable complementary account".

ORTELIUS ABRAHAM.
Incisione in rame, coloritura d'epoca, mm 355x500 tratta da "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", opera che ebbe un successo immediato e numerosissime riedizioni. Il "Theatrum" è considerato il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Abraham Ortel (1528-1598), che latinizzò il proprio nome in Ortelius, fu quella di riunire in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Oltre all'India ed all'arcipelago indonesiano citati nel titolo, la carta rappresenta anche le regioni dell'estremo oriente, compresi Cina e Giappone. Bel cartiglio decorato in basso a sinistra e stemma nobiliare nell'angolo superiore dello stesso lato. Testo latino al verso.Buone condizioni, con restauri ad alcuni piccoli strappi marginali e ad uno strappo longitudinale professionalmente restaurato.

Orazio FARINATI (Verona 1558/1561 - dopo il 1616)
Acquaforte, 1590 circa, monogrammata in lastra ?P. F.? in basso a sinistra. Magnifica e rara prova, particolarmente nitida e contrastata, con la presenza di graffi sulla lastra tipici delle prime impressioni, con sottili margini oltre l?impronta del rame, applicata su antico supporto di collezione, lievissima ossidazione al centro, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Diversamente da suo padre, Orazio prestava molta attenzione ai dettagli del paesaggio nelle sue opere e questa Madonna con Bambino ne è un eccellente esempio. Sebbene infatti le figure siano in primo piano, l?ombreggiatura dietro l?albero le integra, allo stesso tempo, in un paesaggio di più ampio respiro. Nonostante il guscio di lumaca e le iniziali, che indicano Paolo Farinati come autore del soggetto, la composizione suggerisce una contaminazione da parte di diverse fonti. La figura della Vergine, ad esempio, seduta al suolo sotto un albero mentre mostra il suo profilo di ispirazione classica, deriva da un dipinto di Tiziano andato perduto. Farinati conosceva il soggetto del dipinto grazie alle riproduzioni a stampa realizzate da altri artisti: Niccolò Boldrini eseguì infatti una xilografia nel 1540 con lo stesso tema, ma è probabilmente l?acquaforte di Giovanni Francesco Camocio, datata alla fine del XVI secolo, l?opera che più fedelmente riproduce il dipinto di Tiziano. Gioconda Albricci fa notare come il motivo della Madonna assisa ricorra spesso nell?album di Paolo Farinati, conservato nel Castello a Milano. L?artista combina questa figura di stampo tizianesco insieme con i putti caratteristi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Agostino CARRACCI (Bologna 1557 - Parma 1602)
Bulino, circa 1590/5. Della serie delle cosiddette Lascivie. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa collezione, undici opere a carattere mitologico e biblico con marcato sfondo erotico, fece infuriare papa Clemente VIII (1592-1605) che biasimò il Carracci per la sua mancanza di buona creanza. Proprio la diatriba con il Pontefice contribuisce alla datazione delle lastre, altrimenti prive di firma e data. Dato il soggetto ?peccaminoso? le opere ebbero poca tiratura e risultano pertanto assai rare Engraving, about 1590/5. The series of so-called Lascivie. Beautiful proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed with copper, in excellent condition. This collection of eleven works from mythology and the Bible with marked erotic, angered Pope Clement VIII (1592-1605) who blamed the Carracci for his lack of good manners. Just the dispute with the Pope contributes to the dating of the plates, or without a signature and date. Given the subject "sinful" works had little circulation and are therefore very rare. De Grazia 186; Bartsch 133; Bury, The print in Italy 1550-1620, p. 196, 139. Dimensioni 112x154.

FRANCO, NICOLã (da BENEVENTO).
Vinegia, Altobello Salicato, alla Libraria della Fortezza. 1590. In 12 esimo, pp. (14), 148, front. con marca tip., testatine e capilett. ornati, leg. in p. perg. orig. con tit. calligr. al dorso. Opera assai curiosa e critica verso i costumi del tempo, citata fra i Libri proibiti. Edita dopo la morte dell' Autore (1515 - 1570), stampata dal Giolito, descritta dal Peignot nel Dictionnaire des livres condamnes au feu, (pp. 143), e con l'importante revisione del bolognese Giovannini che le ridette nuova diffusione, contiene, oltre al noto dialogo sulla "miseria, et calamit? delle Puttane, Tiranni, Mercanti e di Soldati tristi, et scellerati", il gustosissimo Dialogo VIII, che "narra il modo di vendere libri buoni et cattivi" (Graesse, II, p. 628). L'A. (1515 ca. - 1569), poeta satirico e avventuroso poligrafo di Benevento, dapprima amico e collaboratore di Pietro Aretino e poi suo acerrimo avversario, a causa di controversie sorte sopra la paternit? di alcune opere, sempre al centro di intrighi e persecuzioni politiche, fu fatto impiccare a Roma da Pio V nel 1570. (Per notizie vedi: De Nicastro Beneventana Pinacotheca, 1720, p. 168; Toppi Bibliotheca Napoletana, 1678, p. 221). Molte volte ristampata, l'operetta ? rara a trovarsi in questa edizione che manca anche ai pi? importanti repertori. Buon esemplare, interessato da qq. fioritura alla pergamena, da lievi gore al margine delle carte e da alcune antiche annotazioni. (Cfr. Adams, F, 954).

PORCACCHI DA CASTIGLIONE, THOMASO. - [THE CULMINATION OF THE "BOOK OF ISLANDS"]
Venetia [Venice], apresso gli heredi di S. Gagliani, 1590. [Colophon: In Vintia, appresso Giorgio Angelieri, a instantia de gli heredi di Simon Gagliani de Karera, 1590]. Small folio. 18th century (ab. 1780-90) half vellum with gilt leather title label to spine. Corners a bit bumped and title label a bit worn, otherwise nice and tight. A very nice copy, on thick, crisp paper. A few quires browned and brownspotted, and some occasional lighter browning. Four leaves with a marginal worm-tract, far from affecting text. Beautiful engraved title-page, consisting of a wide architectural border illustrated with large figures, putti, globes, and various symbols. Beautiful large woodcut initials and head- and tail-pieces. 47 half-page engraved maps in the text (by Porro, of islands and continents), excellent, crisp impressions. Large woodcut device to colophon. (12) ff., 201, (1) pp. ¶ Third, much enlarged edition (with 47 maps as opposed to the mere 30 of the first edition) of Porcacchi's great book of islands, arguably the most famous of all "isolario"s, with the 47 finely engraved maps by the famous map-maker Girolamo Porro, which also include maps of non-insular places, e.g North America and Mexico City, the famous city plan of Venice and that of Constantinople. Porcachhi's great "isolario" represents the culmination of the "book of islands"-genre, both in regards to artistic quality and the information provided. It furthermore constitutes a main work in the history of the published knowledge of farther parts of the world and an important link in the development from what we call … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ortelius, Abraham
Antwerp: 1590-1612. Hand colored, double-page engraved map, 345 x 495 mm (14" x 20"), Latin text on verso. Wide margins, some soiling in margins, a little darkening at fold, tear at fold at bottom margin; otherwise very good with strong impression.

This map is colorful impression of the Cremona section of Italy, Italy, and it was probably published in 1612, although date on the map indicates 1579. Bagrow: History of Cartography p.179. # 101238.
