Giovanni MAGGI (1566-1618)
Suite di 8 incisioni all?acquaforte, 1601, firmate e datate in lastra in basso. Esemplari di probabile secondo stato con l?indirizzo di Mattheus Greuter aggiunto in basso. Bellissime prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ?cerchio con tre monti? (simile a Briquet 11933 e presente in quattro incisioni), rifilate al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La suite dei giardini del Maggi unisce elementi di fantasia a particolari architettonici esistenti in Roma, quali la Basilica di San Lorenzo fuori le Mura, Villa Medici e i Giardini del Quirinale. Disegnatore ed incisore romano, è autore della Bichierografia, una raccolta di 1600 disegni per vetri realizzata nel 1604 e dedicata al Cardinale Francesco Maria del Monte. Nel 1609 concluse un accordo di lavoro con l?editore Giovanni Orlandi , realizzando molte incisioni di chiese. Le sue lastre sono citate nell?elenco di vendita del Vaccari del 1614. Importante la sua opera di incisore di paesaggi e antichità, come la serie: Libro di tutte le guglie, (1600) e Ornamenti delle fabbriche antiche e moderne dell?alma città di Rome,1600. Il Gandellini riporta sull'autore le seguenti parole: "romano, pittore di paesi fu buon disegnatore, e buon prospettivista, ed intagliò ad acquaforte molte vedute ben intese, e con buon gusto formate; molte facciate di chiese di Roma. Fece anche una prospettiva grandissima di Roma ricavata, e disegnata in piano, con tutte le strade, piazze, chiese, palazzi, e case private, la qual'opera non potendo quel pover'uomo finire per mancanza di denaro, ne ridurre a quella perfezione, a cui l'avre … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARTAS DU SALLUSTE Guillaume
S.l. [Geneve]: Pour Jaques Chouet, 1601. relié. In 16. Nouvelle édition. Elle fut imprimée pour la première fois en 1584, in 4, à Paris. Ses réimpressions furent moins nombreuses que pour la première semaine. Cette dernière n’est pas référencée par Tchemerzine. Demi Veau début XIXe. Dos lisse orné de filet. Titre doré. 2 manque au mors supérieur sur 1 cm. Mouillures pâles jaunes marginales. p. 480 à 503 Mouilllure brune et brunissures plus prononcées. La seconde de semaine est écrite suivant le même principe que la première semaine ou création du monde. C’est une sorte de poème encyclopédique qui suit le déroulement de la Genèse. Le poème renvoie à de nombreuses notes qui le commentent. La poésie de Bartas eut un immense succès en son temps, peut-être parce qu’on y trouvait également une foule d’enseignement sur les anciens, la science, et les inventions. Goethe en fut un fervent admirateur , elle eut moins de succès par la suite en France, qui la jugea bonne dans ses idées mais trop débridée à son goût. L’édition comprend les abondants et érudits commentaires de Simon Goulart. La seconde semaine demeura inachevée puisque seuls les deux premiers jours ont paru. Cependant des éditions plus tardives publieront des inédits. - Pour Jaques Chouet, S.l. [Geneve] _1601, In 16, (24) 583pp. (17), relié. - relié

CASSERIUS, Giulio Cesare
[Victorius Baldinus], [Ferrara] 1601 - Elaborately engraved title, 2 engraved portraits, and 33 engraved anatomical plates. Our copy is one of a few printed with a blank verso M3, a printer's error, considered by researchers to be an earlier issue. It is also bound in the original boards, and due to a probable binder's error, it was bound without 4 congruent text leaves (Q2-3 and B2-3), which are supplied in facsimile. A few insignificant spots, but overall a handsome and elegant copy. The words "Enatomia placem" (?) in contemporary manuscript to top and bottom fore-edges. First edition of the most beautiful and celebrated book published on the ear and throat, with drawings based on Casserius' human and animal dissections. His detailed and accurate studies included a wide range of animals: mammals, birds, amphibians, and insects, all examined in relation to human organs. The plates were executed by the German painter and etcher Joseph Maurer, and are the most accurate in the history of comparative anatomy. "Casserius' plates mark a new epoch in the history of anatomic representation, owing to the correctness of their anatomical drawing, their tasteful arrangement, and the beauty of their technical execution . . . They have become the models for anatomic illustrations in copper, just as the Vesalian representations had been for anatomic woodcuts" (see Choulant-Frank, p. 228).The work is divided into two separate parts, one on the organs of speech, and the other on hearing. It records the first accurate description of the laryngeal muscles and nerves as well as the first usef … [Click Below for Full Description]

Our copy is one of those printed with a blank verso 2M3 in part 2 instead of plate XII, considered by researchers to be an earlier issue; a facsimile of this plate is tipped in for continuity. [Ferrara: Victorio Baldino, 1600-1601.] 386 x 264 mm. Vellum c. 1601, spine and margin of back cover repaired, light wear. A little light browning and offsetting, occasional faint dampstains, otherwise a very good copy. First Edition. Casserio was a student of Fabrici, and succeeded him in the chair of anatomy at the University of Padua. Like Fabrici, Casserio attempted to explain human anatomy by reference to the lower animals, and his De vocis, containing the first comparative studies of the vocal and auditory organs, represents one of the sixteenth century's most ambitious investigations in comparative anatomy. The work is divided into two treatises, on the anatomy of the larynx and on that of the ear. In the first, Casserio compared the human vocal apparatus to those of other mammals, birds, amphibians and even insects. He recognized the larynx to be the principal organ of voice, gave the first precise description of the cricoid-thyroid muscles and accurately depicted the superior and inferior laryngeal nerves, which he correctly assume … [Click Below for Full Description]

Calderón, Melchor
[Np, but likely Madrid, 1601. [2],24pp. Folio. Dbd. Dampstained and soiled, top and bottom edges worn. Worm holes throughout, affecting a few words on each page. Contemporary underlining and marginal lines throughout, contemporary handwritten folio numbers on each recto. Still a good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. An extremely rare treatise which considers the question of whether rebellious Indians in Chile should become slaves. Addressed to the Viceroy and Audiencia of Peru, the work discusses whether slavery of conquered Indians is just or not, reviewing arguments on both sides of the question. Calder´┐Żn approaches the problem in an intriguing manner by providing separate justifications, each in its own individual section of the text, for enslaving the Indians from the various points of view of the King, the Kingdom, and the Church. In turn, the author then provides responses to these various assertions, promoting the view that such slavery would be unjust. The last pages of the text consist of final responses and commentary. Calder´┐Żn, the Canon of the Cathedral of Santiago, also served as Commissar of the Holy Office and the Holy Cross, and the General Vicar of the Bishopric of Santiago. He addresses the TRATADO... to the Viceroy of Peru, as well as numerous representatives of the royal government and the Catholic Church who have convened to consider strategies for waging war against the Araucanian Indians of Southern Chile. The campaign to conquer these Indians was one of the most difficult and drawn-out conflicts between Europeans and American Indians in … [Click Below for Full Description]

C. quae ut à caeteris dignosci possint ex Epistola ad lectorem praefixa intelligetur." The reference to "multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C." refers to the 65 letters found in the library of Johannes Chalasius, of Nîmes, and => published here for the first time. The volume is in roman type and has the Crispinus printer's device on the title-page, woodcut initials, and headpieces. This is one of several issues of an edition differing only in the imprint and in slight variations of paging. 18th-century half "white" calf, gilt spine, raised bands, boards covered with red and white combed paper; edges rubbed; two spine compartments lighter than others, some captions shaved by binder's knife.

Our copy is one of a few printed with a blank verso M3, a printer's error, considered by researchers to be an earlier issue. It is also bound in the original boards, and due to a probable binder's error, it was bound without 4 congruent text leaves (Q2-3 and B2-3), which are supplied in facsimile. A few insignificant spots, but overall a handsome and elegant copy. The words "Enatomia placem" (?) in contemporary manuscript to top and bottom fore-edges. First edition of the most beautiful and celebrated book published on the ear and throat, with drawings based on Casserius' human and animal dissections. His detailed and accurate studies included a wide range of animals: mammals, birds, amphibians, and insects, all examined in relation to human organs. The plates were executed by the German painter and etcher Joseph Maurer, and are the most accurate in the history of comparative anatomy. "Casserius' plates mark a new epoch in the history of anatomic representation, owing to the correctness of their anatomical drawing, their tasteful arrangement, and the beauty of their technical execution . . . They have become the models for anatomic illustrations in copper, just as the Vesalian representations had been for anatomic woodcuts" (see Choulant-Frank, p. 228).

MERCURIALE, Girolamo [1530-1606]
Venice: Giunta, 1601., 1601. 4to. pp. 8 p.l., 308 [i.e. 326], [blank leaf], [26]index & colophon. woodcut printer’s device on title & at end. woodcut initials. 24 full-page or nearly full-page woodcuts (incl. 2 plans) & 1 smaller text woodcut. contemporary limp vellum, overlapping fore-edges (short tear in spine, light stains to first 2 leaves, some leaves lightly embrowned, piece missing from lower margin of I1).

The same blocks were used for subsequent Giunta editions, as here, as well as for the 1672 Amsterdam edition printed by Frisius. On the title-page of the latter, the woodcuts are attributed to Christoforo Coriolano, a craftsman from Nuremberg, who is further described in the preface to the reader as the illustrator of Vasari’s Vite de’ piu eccellenti pittori, scultori, e archit … [Click Below for Full Description]
