        Erster (-ander) Theil, aller Schrifften, Bücher unnd Tractätlein. Bruck an der Thaya, Druckerei des Prämonstratenserstiftes, 1599-1600.

      1600. Folio. 2 vols. With figural titble borders and 13 woodcuts in the text. (7), 663 [but: 661], (15) ff. (17), 546 [but: 545], (10) ff. Contemp. vellum; spines and covers attractively gilt; gilt supralibros. First edition of the collected works of the Tyrol Jesuit Scherer (1559-1605), rector of the Viennese college and a fervent preacher of counter-reformation. His polemics against Osiander, Heerbrand, and other Lutherans occasioned a long series of printed refutations. Scherer's writings prove that he was "ein rühriger, gewandter, schlagfertiger Schriftsteller [...] und sich zugleich durch einen für jene Zeit ganz vorzüglichen Stil auszeichnete [...] Darunter sind von bleibendem Werthe namentlich 'Neun und zwaintig Predigen ... von Notis, Merck- und Kenn-Zeichen der wahren und falschen Kirchen', eine gründliche, durchaus praktische, für das Volk leicht verständliche Abhandlung über die Kirche" (Wetzer/W.). Part 2 contains (at the end) the famous children's catechism. - Printed at the first and only 16th and 17th century press in Bruck an der Thaya (Louckem pod Znojmem) in Moravia, established in 1595 by abbot Sebastian II from Baden near Vienna. The printer was probably Bartholomäus Albert Fuhrmann; until the press was closed in 1608, it produced merely 22 known works. - Title page with contemp. ms. note by Johann Rupert Hegemüller, to whom the author himself had presented the volumes as a gift. Later in the collection of the Austrian local historian Candid von Engelshofen (1803-66; with his library stamp and shelfmark on title page); then in the library of the Bohemian nobleman Franz Graf Thun-Hohenstein (1809-70; with his heraldic bookplate on the front pastedown). Last in the collection of the Austrian industrialist Dr. Friedrich Petrina (1911-2004; with his etched bookplate on front pastedown). - Title page with insignificant defects to upper edge. Spine of vol. 2 with slight defects to upper spine-end; attractive giltstamping largely oxydized. Altogether a fine and clean copy with interesting provenance. VD 16, S 2677 und 2678 (pt. 2 of BSB copy incomplete). De Backer/Sommervogel VII, 761, 38 (pt. 2 incomplete: ends with p. 335). Wetzer/Welte 10, 1786. Cf. Benzing 69.

      The "Standard" edition prepared by Dr. F. S. Paris, of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge and H. Therold, fellow of Magdalene.

Marginal annotations, which had been growing in some Bibles since 1600, although excluded from others, were finally received into the place they have occupied ever since sundry new ones being added. Lloyd's dates and chronological notes were also adopted and increase, and the marginal referees were much enlarged. 16.5" x 10.75" Shelf

        Essayes, By Sir William Corne-Walyes the Younger, Knight. [With:] A Second Part of Essayes. Written by Sir William Cornwallis, the Younger, Knight

      [London:] Printed for Edmund Mattes, 1600 [&] London: Printed for Edmond Matts, 1601, 1600. First editions of both volumes. Rare. STC 5775; ESTC S108699; NCBEL I, 2017; Pforzheimer 214. Calf a little rubbed and worn; vellum soiled and cockled; very good copies.. 2 vols, small octavo, volume one in late 18th century tree-calf, black leather label, gilt decorations and lettering; volume two in contemporary vellum, spine lettered in manuscript. Vignette title-pages. A seminal collection of English essays and the first book by Sir William Cornwallis (c. 1579-1614), who along with Francis Bacon and Henry Peacham - and following the model of Michel de Montaigne - helped to make the informal essay an important part of 17th century English literature. Cornwallis draws from a variety of classical and contemporary sources, including Tasso, Commines, and Guicciardini; he quotes the Old and New Testaments, proverbs, fables, sermons, and commonplace books in his discourses on matters such as fame, affection, praise and glory, resolution, vanity, justice, words, flattery, etc. This is a mixed set of the two volumes; they are sometimes catalogued separately as individual books, but the second series is clearly a continuation of the first: Essays 1-25 constitute volume one and 26-50 volume two. Bookplate of Sylvain van de Weyer and John Clawson in volume one; signature of Thomas Ryme, dated 1615, on the title-page of volume two, and on the final blank is the signature of Samuel Deaken, dated 1727. Bookplate of Robert S. Pirie on the front free endpaper of volume one; the two volumes were purchased by Pirie from bookseller John Fleming in 1966.

THE RARE FIRST EDITION of Fabrici's first published anatomical work, which is in three parts (De visione sive de oculo visus organo, De voce sive de larynge vocis organo, De auditu sive de aure auditus organo) and dealing with the eye, the throat and the ear, illustrated with detailed engravings. "The major portion of this work on the organs of vision, speech, and hearing is devoted to the eye, and it is clear that Fabricius was one of the first to grasp the true form and proper location of the lens. Although his description of the ear is sound, it contributed no new knowledge about the ear or the sense of hearing. An extremely competent comparative anatomist, he was at his best in dealing with the laryngeal apparatus" (Heirs of Hippocrates 365). This work, together with his many other anatomical studies were intended to form a monumental Totius animalis fabricae theatrum, which however never appeared in print. Girolamo Fabrici, also known from the Latin form of his name as Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente, taught anatomy at the University of Padua, where he had previously studied under Gabriele Falioppio, himself a student of Vesalius. Fabrici published a series of works on aspects of anatomy, including the present work on human speech organs and the physiology of voice production. Visit our website for more images.

Oberursel: C. Sutor for J.T. Schönwetter, 1600. Second edition (1st ed.: Rome, 1597) and, like the first edition, very rare. Maioli (1520-97),was an Italian canon lawyer and bishop of Volturara.

        [Coutume. Champagne. 1600]. Les Coustumes du bailliage de Troyes en Champaigne. Avec quelques annotations sur icelles. Par M. Pierre Pithou advocat en Parlement, sieur de Savoye.

(10) pp. de table (1) f.bl., vélin doré, filets dorés d'encadrement et rameaux dorés (partiellement effacés) sur les plats, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale posthume de premier tirage des commentaires de Pierre Pithou mort en 1596. « Le Coutumier intitulé li Droit et li Coutumes de Champaigne et de Brie est le monument le plus important de l'ancien droit de la Champagne. Il a été publié pour la première fois dans le commentaire de la Coutume de Troyes par Pierre Pithou, qui avait comparé ensemble six manuscrits ; il a été reproduit par Legrand et Richebourg. Grosley, qui avait encore au XVIIIe siècle conféré d'anciens manuscrits, dit, dans ses Recherches sur la noblesse de Champagne, que bien que ce monument ne paraisse pas avoir été consacré par l'autorité publique, il a réglé la jurisprudence du pays jusqu'à la rédaction des coutumes. Il se compose de la charte de Thibaut de l'an 1204 et d'une série d'usages et de jugements qui s'étendent jusqu'à l'année 1299. L'écriture du manuscrit le plus ancien est du XIVe siècle. En le rapprochant des anciennes chartes, priviléges et coutumes de Troyes, de Saint-Dizier, de Châlons, de Vitry, de Meaux, de Sens et du Cartulaire de Champagne publié par Chantereau-le-Fèvre en son livre de l'Origine des fiefs, on recompose dans son ensemble le droit féodal et coutumier de la province » (Firmin Laferrière, Histoire du droit français, 1858, p. 68). Exemplaire réglé ; titre rouge et noir, marque de l'imprimeur (Renouard, 552) ; petit trou en marge sans perte de lettre au feuillet Ffii. De la bibliothèque du comte Chandon de Briailles avec son ex-libris ; ex-libris manuscrit daté 1784 sur le titre. Balsamo et Simonin, Abel L'Angelier, 346 ; Gouron et Terrin, 2097.

Very rare first and only Schrötter edition, with the text in Latin and German on facing pages, of an alphabetical catalogue of about 1500 plants in the botanical garden of Leiden University, with an appendix listing about 300 plants native to Leiden, first prepared by Florens Schuyl and published in Latin by Johan Elzevier in 1668.Though clearly based on Vorstius?s catalogue, which the Elzeviers had published in 1636, Schuyl?s catalogue expands the list considerably, including for the first time South African plants. It also includes the date palm and some Far Eastern plants. Urban Schrötter, court gardener at the botanical garden of the Prince Bishops of Eichstätt, apparently saw this edition through the press. The present edition appears to be the only work listing Schrötter as publisher, so he may have been more editor than publisher in the normal sense.With an erroneous manuscript attribution to Gottschalk on the title-page and date 1697. In very good condition. The binding is somewhat worn but still good. Very rare Latin and German edition of Schuyl's catalogue of plants at the Leiden University botanical garden.

        An album of annotated dyed fabric swatches with the binding title, "Dyed Pattern - The Higher Technical School of Tokyo - H. Kohiyama."

      - n.p. [191-?]. Oblong folio (28x38cm) half calf (scuffed and worn but solid); Some 1600 samples mounted on both sides of 62 lined leaves - plus some unused leaves. A couple of swatches missing and couple insect chewed. Copiously annoted in ink. The "Higher Technological School" of Tokyo was third name for what is now the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Founded in 1881 as the Vocational School it graduated to Higher in 1901. As a colour dictionary I've not seen many that can match 1600 samples. Here is a thorough record of dye colours, their ingredients, recipes and processes. Much is Japanese but names, chemicals and quantities are in English and doubtless any reasonably proficient dyemaker, anywhere, could reproduce these colours now. I'm not sure what it means but I notice that some reds that include alizarine paste are not colour fast - a few have left strong impressions on facing pages. I'd guess that H. Kohiyama was the instructor and this was likely bound by the school bindery.

        The Romane Historie (.) Written by T. Livius of Padua. Also, the Breviaries of L. Florus: with a Chronologie to the whole Historie: and the Topographie of Rome in old time.

      London Adam Islip 1600 - Folio, (10), 1404, (40) pp., woodcut title, initials, head-and tailpieces, woodcut of Queen Elizabeth, to whom this edition is dedicated, on verso of title page and portrait of Livy. Contemporary dark brown calf rebacked, blind-panelled boards, raised bands, corners worn, a fine example. Philemon Holland's Livy was the first in a series of unabridged translations of canonical Roman works that made him, in Thomas Fuller's famous phrase "the translator general in his age" (Peter Culhane, Philemon Holland's Livy). "Holland's first book, the first complete rendering of Livy into English, was published in 1600 when he was nearly fifty. It was a work of great importance, presented in a grand folio volume of 1458 pages, and dedicated to the queen. The translation set out to be lucid and unpretentious, and achieved its aim with marked success. It is accurate, and often lively, and although it does not attempt to imitate the terseness of Latin, it avoids prolixity. As part of his book Holland translated two other substantial works—an ancient epitome of Roman history which provides an outline of the lost books of Livy, and Bartolomeo Marliani's guide to the topography of Rome—as well as some smaller texts. These were taken from the edition of Livy published in Paris in 1573; by translating them, Holland was making available in English a great learned compendium of historical knowledge, not simply a single ancient author" (ODNB). One of the greatest and certainly the most popular of the Roman writers of history, Titus Livius began his great work between 27 and 25 B.C., completing it only shortly before his death about ten years later. In it he gives the complete history of the city of Rome, from its foundation to the death of Augustus. Because he was writing under the emperor Augustus, Livy's history emphasizes the great triumphs of Rome. He wrote his history with embellished accounts of Roman heroism in order to promote the new type of government implemented by Augustus when he became emperor. In Livy's preface to his history, he said that he did not care whether his personal fame remained in darkness, as long as his work helped to "preserve the memory of the deeds of the world's preeminent nation."

        HISPANIAE nova descriptio

      1600. Carta geografica della Penisola Iberica edita a Siena verso il 1600 circa e fedele derivazione della carta di Abraham Ortelius dal titolo Regni Hispaniae Postomnivm Editiones Locvpletissima Descriptio pubblicata per la prima volta ad Anversa nel 1570. Sebbene non firmata la carta è attribuita, senza ordine di dubbio, alla bottega di Matteo Florimi. La lastra sembra riconducibile alla mano dell'incisore fiammingo Arnoldo di Arnoldi, che lavorava già per Giovanni Antonio Magini. Il periodo di collaborazione tra il Florimi e l'Arnoldi è riconducibile agli anni 1600 - 1602 e produsse un discreto numero di mappe. In basso: a destra in una targa ornata con fregi figure e mascheroni HISPANIAE nova descriptio. a sinistra in una piccola targa Scala di miglia Italiane 90. (90 = mm 50) e Scala leucarum 30. (30 = mm 60). Orientazione nei quattro lati al centro con il nome dei punti cardinali in latino Septentrio, Meridies, Oriens, Occidens. Graduazione ai margini di 10' in 10' va da 34° 30' a 44° 42' lat. e da 10° a 26° 12' margine in basso (da 9° 10' a 26° 55' margine in alto) lat. Acquaforte e bulino, mm 357 x 478. Non sono note ristampe, tuttavia alcuni esemplari della mappa, di tiratura più tarda, possono essere attribuiti ai torchi dell'editore senese Pietro Petrucci, che acquisì gran parte delle lastre del Florimi. Map of the Iberian Peninsula by Matteo Florimi, published in Siena aroun 1600. The map is a copy of Abraham Ortelius Regni Hispaniae Postomnivm Editiones Locvpletissima Descriptio, first edition published in Anversa, 1570. The engraving could be attribued to the Flemish engraver Arnoldo di Arnoldi, who had already worked for Giovanni Antonio Magini. The partnership between Florimi and Arnoldi dates back to yeras 1600 - 1602, and together realized a certain number of maps. Etching and engraving, trimmed to the platemark, good condition. No other editions are known, however, some later examples of the map, can be attributed to the publisher Pietro Petrucci, who acquired most of the Florimi's plates.

        Asia Partivorbis maxima..

      1600. Rara ed affascinante carta dell'Asia. Matthaus Quad era un cartografo tedesco risiedente a Colonia, città che, all'epoca, era il punto nevralgico della cartografia tedesca. Questa carta, presa da dal suo "Fascilus Geographicus", è stata stampata da Johannes Bussemacher. Scarce early map of the Asia from Quad's Atlas Geographische Handbuch, published by Johann Bussemacher. Quad's map is a marvelous amalgam of early cartographic information and mis - inforamtion. The Korean peninsula does not appear. Japan is shaped in a very curious C shape. The Philippines is oddly misconfigured and much of SE Asia is mishaped or conjectural. Rich dark impression and full color, with wide margins. Colonia Cologne 300 210

        Kutschen Europas des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts Bd.2 : Wagen-Atlas [Gebundene Ausgabe] Andres Furger (Autor) Documenta Hippologica Kutschen Europas des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts. Band 2: Wagen-Atlas

      Olms, 1600. Im zweiten Band der Kutschen Europas des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts wird die reiche F?lle der in Europa haupts?chlich verbreiteten Wagenmodelle des vorletzten Jahrhunderts aufgrund der wichtigsten historischen Quellen systematisch geordnet dargetellt. 63 g?ngige Luxuswagen werden durch den Lauf der Zeit verfolgt. Sie geben einen repr?sentativen Querschnitt durch die beeindruckende Formenvielfalt der historischen Kutschen von der schweren herrschaftlichen Coach bis zum leichten, sportlichen Zweirad. Rundum ?berzeugt zeigt sich der "tfr." zeichnende Rezensent von Andres Furgers zweib?ndigem Werk "Kutschen Europas des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts", einem "au?ergew?hnliches Bilderbuch mit h?chst aussagekr?ftigen Zeitdokumenten". W?hrend der Autor im ersten Band die Kulturgeschichte der Kutsche behandle, berichtet der Rezensent, vermittele er im zweiten einen ?berblick ?ber die Modellvielfalt der in Europa und ?bersee verwendeten Wagen. Der Rezensent versichert, dass die beiden B?nde sowohl mit den kulturhistorischen Kapiteln, als auch mit der Beschreibung der technischen Entwicklung bis hin zu den Anf?ngen des Automobils einen Kreis von Lesern zu begeistern verm?gen, der weit ?ber das hippologische Fachpublikum hinausreicht. Seines Erachtens spricht Fugers Werk f?r eine international g?ltige Neuordnung der Wagennomenklatur. Zudem schlie?e es eine L?cke in unserer Kulturgeschichte. Das Fazit des Rezensenten: "zwei unvergleichbare Grundlagenwerke". Kutschen Europas des 19. und 20.

        Nova exactissimaque descriptio Danubii.

      bei Theodor Galle ca., Antwerpen 1600 - Kupferstich (von 2 Platten) v. J. u. L. van Deutecum, Antwerpen, bei Theodor Galle ca. 1600, 98 x 34 cm. Sehr gut erhalten. * UNRECORDED COPY - EIN BISHER UNBEKANNTER ZUSTAND! Veränderter Plattenzustand der seltenen und dekorativen Donaulaufkarte von de Jode (vgl. hierzu: Koeman, Jod.2,61; Ortroy S.126 Nr.98; Szathmary: Ungarn-Karten Nr.84B-C), rückseitig ohne Text. vgl. New Hollstein, Doetecum III/586-587; Koeman III,1110/1 und 2:32; Karrow 70/17; Ortroy S.126; Szathmáry 84/B;Zögner: Flüsse S. 141+147. Diese Karte war ursprünglich von 1578 Gerard de Jode publiziert worden. Ein Plattenzustand dieser Donau-Karte mit der Verlagsadresse von Theodor Galle war bisher unbekannt (so auch bei G. Schilder: Monumenta cartographica Neerlandica II, S. 157-160, wo die Arbeiten von Theodor Galle beschrieben werden). Erst kürzlich (1999) gelang es, das bisher einzige Expl. einer Rheinlauf-Karte von Theodor Galle nachzuweisen (s. Schilder/Stopp MCN I, S.5, Anm.23., doch auch hier ist eine Donau-Karte von Theodor Galle unbekannt. Zur Genesis: Die Kupferplatten von de Jode's "Speculum" waren nach seinem Tod in den Besitz des Atlasverlegers de Vrients gelangt, dessen Witwe sie 1612 an Moretus (den Erben der Plantin'schen Offizin in Antwerpen) verkaufte. Dort verkehrte auch Theodor Galle (Sohn des Kupferstechers Philipp Galle), der eine Moretus-Tochter heiratete und so die Möglichkeit erhielt, Abzüge von den de Jode-Platten herzustellen und als EINBLATTDRUCKE mit seiner eigenen Verlagsadresse ("Th. Galleus exc.") zu verkaufen. Während alle Theodor-Galle-Karten wegen ihrer geringen Auflage sehr selten sind, ist diese Version der Donau-Karte in der Literatur völlig unbekannt. Vermutlich handelt es sich um ein UNICUM. De Jode's Donau-Karte basiert auf der ersten modernen Karte der Donauländer, gezeichnet von Christian Sgrooten, einem in Kalkar lebenden Geographen des Königs von Spanien Philipp II. Von de Jode's Donau-Karte sind (gemäß freundlicher Mitteilung von Prof. Dr. Günter Schilder, Universität Utrecht) demnach drei Plattenzustände bekannt: 1.) als Atlaskarte im "Speculum" 1578; 2.) als Einblattdruck mit zusätzlichem typographischem Text am Unterrand sowie an der Seite (nur 1 Exemplar bekannt); 3.) als Einblattdruck mit der Verlagsadresse von Theodor Galle (nur 1 Exemplar bekannt - das hier vorliegende). * Rare loose impression of de Jode's map of the Danube with the surrounding countries in a so far unknown state with de Jode's imprint replaced by Theodor Galle's one; without letterpress text on verso. Based on or copied from a now lost map designed by Christian Sgrooten (geographer to the King of Spain Philipp II.), it was published in the form of a loose wall-map and in both editions of de Jode's Speculum. Only from de Jode's map of the Rhine 2 copies with Th. Galle's imprint are mentioned by Schilder/Stopp (MCN I, p.5, note 23). Th. Galle obtained free access to the stock of copperplates for de Jode's Speculum through his marriage to the second daughter of Jan I. Moretus (the successor of Plantijn), and so he brought a number of maps separately onto the market (cf. MCN VII, p.386). Uncoloured, slight spotting in places, somewhat toned. 4 small worm holes to lower white margin filled in; repairs to small marginal tear, a few small tears to vertical folds; elsewhere in good condition. (#2800AG)

        Spoletvm Vmbriae Capvt

      1600. Acquaforte e bulino, 1600, firmata in lastra in basso. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con la data 1613; il primo stato, datato 1600, è descritto solo dal Tooley. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale su tre lati, poco entro in basso con perdita della cornice ornamentale inferiore, restauro all'angolo superiore sinistro perfettamente eseguito, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La pianta prospettica e planimetrica edita dal Thomassin è opera di Francesco Parenzi o Parenzio ed è dedicata a Paolo Giordano Orsini, il cui stemma di famiglia appare nel bellissimo cartiglio sulla sinistra. Philippe Thomassin si stabilisce a Roma verso il 1585 dove incide soprattutto soggetti religiosi alla bottega del Duchetti, del Vaccari e del Clodio. Come d'uso nel periodo però, dal 1588, diviene anche editore, ottenendo nel 1599 il beneficio del privilegio da papa Clemente VIII. Bibliografia: Bella, Cartografia Rara, p. 137, 129 II/II; Bury, The Print in Italy, p. 234. Dimensioni 535x395. Etching and engraving, 1600, signed on lower plate. Example in the second state of two, dated 1613; the first state, 1600, has been listed only by Tooley. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper trimmer to marginal line on three sides, slightly inside the margin on lower part, with the consequent loss of part of the decorative frame, minor repair on upper left corner perfectly executed, otherwise in excellent condition. Perspective and planimetric plan published by Thomassin and realized by Francesco Parenzi or Parenzio, dedicated to Paolo Giordano Orsini, whose family coat of arms is depicted in the beautiful cartouche on the left. Philippe Thomassin moved to Rome in 1585, where he engraved mainly religious subjects in the workshops of Duchetti, Vaccari and Clodio. As usual in those times, he became also a publisher in 1588 and was granted the Pope's privilege in 1599 by Clemente VIII.

        Venetia

      1600. Bulino, circa 1600, firmato in lastra in basso a sinistra. Magnifica prova, impressa su cartta vergata coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Questa rara pianta della città edita a Roma, segue il modello iniziato da Giacomo Franco e Bernardo Salvioni alla fine del XVI secolo, raffigurando la processione del Doge in basso. Un'analoga versione del soggetto è la pianta edita da Matteo Florimi nel 1598 della quale in effetti questa opera del De'Paoli sembra una fedele replica con alcune varianti sebbene l'impianto grafico è immutato, e la leggenda è fedele alla pianta del Florimi differendo da quella del Salvioni. Giovanni Antonio De' APoli è editore e stampatore attivo a Roma tra il 1589 ed il 1630, dove aveva una bottega calcografica in Santa Maria della Pace. Di lui sappiamo che ottenne privilegi di stampa dal Papa nel 1599, 1605 e 1624. Tuttavia è mia opinione personale che questa lastra non sia autografa del De' Paoli che spesso si limitava a ristampare opere di altri editori, acquisendone le lastre dopo la morte. E' probabile che questa si la versione Romana della pianta del Salvioni, creata per il mercato locale, antagonista alle calcografie venete e toscane, e quindi opera di ignoto editore e databile ai primi anni del XVII secolo. Il Moretto data l'opera la 1620, non specificando tuttavia su quale base scientifica. Meraviglioso esemplare di questa rara pianta. Bibliografia: Schultz 56; Cassini p. 63; Moretto, Venetia, Le immagini della Repubblica, p. 130, 57. Dimensioni 517x390. Engraving, 1600 circa, signed on lower left plate. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper with margins, in excellent condition. This rare city plan published in Rome follows the model established by Giacomo Franco and Bernardo Salvioni at the end of the XVI century, depicting the procession of the Doge on lower part. An analogous version of this subject is the plan published in 1598 by Matteo Florimi and, actually, the present work seems to be an exact replica of the previous one, with minor changes, thug the graphic base and the legend are exactly like Florimi's version (but not like Salvioni's). Giovanni Antonio De' APoli was publisher and printer; he worked in Rome between 1589 and 1630, where he run a chalcographic workshop in Santa Maria della Pace. About his life and work, we know that he was granted Pope's privileges in 1599, 1605 and 1624. Nonetheless, I do believe this plate was not realized by De' Paoli himself, for, quite often, he reissued other artists' plates after buying the rights once they were dead. Very likely, then, this might be the Roman version of Salvioni,'s plan, created for the local market, in rivalry with the Venetian and Tuscan chalcographic workshops. For that reason, this plate might have been realized by an unknown artist and might have been published at the beginning of the XVII century. Moretto dated the work around 1620, not specifying his criterion. Marvellous example of a rare plan. .

        Allegoria del Bene e del Male (Le Virtù allo specchio)

      1600. "Bulino, 1600 circa, firmato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un disegno di Cornelis Ketel. Esemplare del terzo stato di quattro, prima che l'indirizzo di Laurentius. Bellissima prova, stampata su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con piccoli margini, due lievi pieghe di carta orizzontali, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questo superba e monumentale opera, ricca di dettagli allegorici, già suscitò molto interesse negli artisti contemporanei di Saenredam, confermando la sua posizione come una delle più importanti personalità artistiche nella cerchia di Goltius. Nella sua biografia di Cornelis Ketel, per esempio, Carel van Mander ha dedicato una descrizione completa di questa stampa, riferendosi ad essa come ""Deughtspiegel"", lo specchio della Virtù. Il titolo latino impresso nella stampa - Naturae seguitur semina quisque suae - può essere tradotto come: ""Ognuno segue il seme della propria natura"". Un'interpretazione dettagliata di questa immagine, accademicamente e iconograficamente complessa, sarebbe troppo ambiziosa nel contesto di una breve voce di catalogo, ma è comunque possibile affrontare il tema di fondo dell'immagine. Una personificazione della Beneficentia è posta al centro della composizione, affiancato dalla Gratitudine e dalla Ingratitudine. Le iscrizioni che accompagnano forniscono ulteriori indizi per il programma iconografico qui rappresentato: due serpenti, che si mordono con rabbia uno con l'altro, sono avvolti attorno alla gamba destra della personificazione maschile dell'Ingratitudine, mentre il ginocchio sinistro poggia su un teschio. In primo piano a destra si trova una bara con la scritta - Mors.Oblivio - . L'immagine suggerisce che dimenticare è un atto di gentilezza non meno terribile della morte. La figura femminile in ginocchio sulla sinistra rappresenta uno scenario opposto. Lei è pienamente consapevole della gentilezza che le è mostrata, come conferma l'obelisco dietro di lei dove si legge - Aet (Ernis) M (emoria) - . Il leone dall'aspetto docile posto ai piedi della figura simboleggiante la Beneficentia, che ha fatto amicizia con un piccolo cane, sono ulteriori caratteristiche di gratitudine. La scena principale si trova racchiusa in una cornice allegorica riccamente decorata. Sulla destra della cornice si trovano Diana e Efeso, visto dare alla luce un bambino, identificato come Malignitas secondo l'iscrizione. A sinistra, Apollo assiste una giovane donna che mette al mondo un neonato innocente, che viene identificato con l'iscrizione Bona indolis. Bell'esemplare di questo capolavoro di Saenredam." "Engraving, circa 1600, signed at lower center. After Cornelis Ketel. Example of the third state of four, before the address of Laurentius. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark or with small margins, 2 small horizontal paper folds, otherwise in good condition. This superb monumental print, rich in allegoric detail, already impressed Saenredam's contemporaries, confirming his position as one of the most outstanding artistic personalities in Goltius's circle. In his biography of Cornelis Ketel, for instance, Carel van Mander dedicated a full description to this print, referring to it as the "Deughtspiegel" (Mirror of Virtue). The Latin title lettered in the print Naturae seguitur semina quisque suae can be translated as: "Everyone follows the seed of his own nature". A detailed interpretation of this academic and iconographically complex image would be too ambitious in the context of a brief catalogue entry, but it is nonetheless possible to address the underlying theme of the image. A personification of Beneficentia /Charity) can be seen at the center of the composition, flanked by Gratitude and Ingratitude. The accompanying inscriptions provide further clues to the iconographic program represented here, Two snakes, angrily biting each other, are wound around the right leg of the male personification of Ingratitude, while the left knee rests on a skull. In the right foreground lies a coffin with the inscription - Mors.Oblivio - . The imagery suggests that forgetting an act of kindness is no less terrible than death. The female figure see piously kneeling on the left points to an opposite scenario. She is fully aware of the kindness shown to her as confirmed by the obelisk behind her that is inscribed - Aet(ernis) M(emoria) - . The good natured lion at the feet of the Beneficentia, who has made friends with a small dog, as well as a mouse, that is shown balancing on a rope, to which the king of the animals is bound, are further attributes of gratitude. The main scene is set in a richly decorated allegorical frame. On the right is the many breasted Diana and Ephesos, seen giving birth to a child, identified as - Malignitas - (Evil Nature) according to the inscription. On the left, Apollo assists a young woman as she gives birth to - Bona indoles - (Good Nature) and breathes life into the innocent newborn. Lettered with the title above. Surmounting the mirror a cartouche with ""INGRATIS SERVIRE NEFAS / Non perit, bonis quod fit bene"". Below in a cartouche two columns of text by P.Hogerbeets. Below the central image ""CKetel Inven. et figurivit I Saenred. sculp. JRazet divulgavit."". A related drawing by Ketel in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (see K.G. Boon, 'Netherlandish drawings of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries', The Hague 1978, no. 328). See also H. van Os, J. P. Filedt Kok, G.Luijten and F.Scholten, 'Netherlandish Art in the Rijksmuseum 1400 - 1600', Amsterdam 2000, pp. 205 - 206. The print is known in editions with letterpress explanation in German and in Dutch/French." Bartsch 106, Hollstein 114 III (of IV). Dimensioni 528 x 375. 528 375
