Extrem seltene erste Deutsche Ausgabe in der Üebersetzung von Peter Uffenbach (1566-1635) !Carlo Ruini: Anatomia & Medicina Equorum Nova, Das ist/ Neuweß Roßbuch? oder vo[n] der Pferden Anatomy/ Natur/ Cur/ Pflegung unnd Heylung/ Zwey außerlesene Bücher : In welchen nicht allein die starcke Glieder/ Beine/ Mäuse unnd Adern deß gantzen Leibs der Pferde/ sondern auch allerley denselben zufallende accidentia, Kranck- Schwachheiten unnd Gebrechen ... gelehret und gewiesen werden / Auß deß Edlen unnd Vesten Caroli Ruini von Bononia, Italianischer Edition ... ins Teutsch gebracht/ Durch Petrum Uffenbach .... &Von allen und jeden Kranckheiten und Gebrechen der PferdeRuinis Anatomia gilt als das erste Werk der wissenschaftlichen Veterinärmedizin und überhaupt das erste Werk, das sich abgesehen vom Menschen mit nur einer Spezies beschäftigt. Es ist von besonderer Wichtigkeit, da man glaubte die ersten Spuren einer Kenntnis des Blutkreislaufes gefunden zu haben. - "First book devoted exclusively to the structure of a single species other than man. Besides being one of the foundation-stones of modern veterinary medicine, it contains a description of the lesser circulation. The admirable plates are by some authorities attributed to Leonardo" (Garrison/M. 285).Durchgehen etwas gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig, Titel verstärkt und im Bug angesetzt, ferner minimale fachgerechte Restaurierungen von Einrissen, Abrissen usw..Ein sehr schönes Exemplar dieses sehr seltenen Werkes.-Wellcome I, 5624 Garrison/M. 285 (EA 1598) Nissen ZBI 3517 Graesse VI, 191 ADB 39, 134 (Uffenbach)."In 1598 Carlo Ruini, a senator of Bologna, completed his great work on the anatomy and diseases of the horse, and is thus the author of the first comprehensive monograph on the anatomy of an animal. Practically nothing is known of the life of this remarkable man - except that he was possibly murdered. He was born c. 1530 and died on February 2 or 3, 1598 - about a month before his work was published.One plate is dated 1590, which would indicate that the book had been in preparation for some years. Bayon has recently revived the suggestion that Ruini may be credited with the text, but that the figures are those drawn by Leonardo to illustrate his own projected treatise on the anatomy of the horse. No evidence can be produced for the latter statement, which is inconsistent with the well-grounded belief that Leonardo never wrote such a treatise, nor, assuming that Ruini's woodcuts are reasonable reproductions of the original drawings, would any historian of art recognize in them the craftsmanship of Leonardo. It is true that the last figure of the superficial muscles of the horse in Book V is well posed and discovers some artistic feeling, but it has not the subtlety of the art of Leonardo. Moreover, it is impossible to avoid the conclusion that Ruini's work is the direct and logical outcome of the Vesalian tradition, since it resembles, if it does not equal, the masterpiece of the founder of anatomy in almost every detail. 'It is instructive to trace the parallel between these two works. In both cases we observe a steady resolve to exhaust the anatomy of one type, and to avoid digressions by the way. Ruini's treatise, as we should expect from the cumbrous nature of his subject, is the more topographical, but so far as possible he works through the animal system by system in the same patient and exhaustive manner. We know the anxiety of Vesalius to secure the most perfect illustrations available at the time, how he employed a pupil of " the divine Titian " to prepare the drawings for the wood engravings, and indulged a capricious and not always amiable fancy of throwing his figures into expressive attitudes and supplying them with a panoramic background. In all this, provided we exclude the pirated figures engraved on copper which have not the artistic merit of the original woodcuts, Ruini is his close but not altogether successful imitator. Both anatomists suffered from persistent and flagrant plagiarism. It is often said that this was a custom but not a crime in the seventeenth century, in spite of the fact that the practice was frequently condemned, and in many cases bitterly resented. Thus shortly before his death in 1691 Robert Boyle proposed to the Council of the Royal Society " that a proper person might be found out to discover plagiarys, and to assert inventions [discoveries] to their proper authors " - a proposal assented to by the Society but apparently not acted upon.1 In 1694 Cowper was complaining of the scarcity of original works and the prevalence of copying and stealing, but in 1698 he had become a plagiarist himself, and was stigmatized by his victim as a robber and highwayman.Snape's anatomy of the horse, first published in 1683, is based on Ruini. None the less its author claimed the honours of a pioneer, for, he savs, none had gone before or showed him the way Ruini's name is not even mentioned, although Snape's plates are close copies of Ruini's figures, notwithstanding his assertion that he has " by a curious draught or delineation represented to you such observations as are made in true dissections ". One of his plates representing the entire skeleton has, he claims, been " drawn exactly by one that I keep standing in a Press ", but it is difficult to believe that this skeleton in the cupboard could have been as unlike a horse as Ruini's figure which Snape has copied. In another of Snape's plates the only original feature is the addition of a superfluous dragon-fly to the background, nor can we excuse the subtle dissimulation which warns us " not to trust too much to these copies, as I may call them, without practising upon the original body itself ". It is worth noting that Snape himself was plagiarized, and so ad infinitum.A French plagiarist of Ruini was Saunier (1734), who had the effrontery to label his plates " Déssiné dapprés Natture ", and claimed in the preface that they represented the life-work of himself and his son, and were prepared at the cost of incessant study and great expense. These transactions, and the early literature of biology is full of them, recall the indignant rhetoric of Robert Knox : " As to the hack compilers their course is simple : they first deny the Doctrine to be true when this becomes untenable they deny that it is new and they finish by engrossing the whole in their next compilations, omitting carefully the name of the author ". He might have added a fourth chapter to this tale of obliquity, in which the discovery is attributed to another worker.- For some time now we have borne with numerous and determined attempts to deprive Harvey of the discovery of the circulation of the blood. On one of these attempts Daremberg makes the following satirical comment : "I have been singularly disappointed ", he says, " to see such an imposing array of citations brought into the service of an indefensible cause, and to learn that of all the ancient and modern writers it is Harvey who has played the smallest part in the discovery of the circulation !"In addition to the unwelcome attentions of the plagiarist Ruini's work has not escaped the more insidious activities of prejudiced commentators. According to one of them Ruini did not write the Anatomy, another does not believe that he wrote the Diseases, and a third accuses him of stealing the illustrations. These charges, which, if sustained, would dispossess Ruini of any share in his own work, may or may not be true, but this much we can say -there is no evidence in support of any of them. Criticism of this type provokes the reflection that, if these spurious anticipations of classic discoveries justified the interpretation now put upon them, their fate was singularly and invariably unfortunate, for at the time they were written they convinced no one. Only when the facts have been firmly established by others are the merits of these simulacra " drawn from their dread abode ".Harvey entered as a student at the University of Padua in the year 1598, (This date is subject to correction-1597 and 1600 have also been maintained.) a date which coincides with the publication of Ruini's work at Bologna. The history of this book shows that it must have been well known, and its influence considerable, although Harvey makes no reference to it in any of his writings. In the preface to Jourdain's edition of Ruini's anatomical plates of 1647 1 it is stated that these detailed and accurate drawings were made from Nature by the very famous master painter Titian, but no authority is given for this highly improbable conclusion.Before the time of Ruini the anatomy of the horse was practically unknown, and the grossest caricatures, such as those of Ferrari, c. 1560, and Scaccho of 1591, were published and accepted as serious representations of its structure. Even after Ruini's work had appeared Markham published a figure of the skeleton of the horse in 1610 which.it is difficult to regard as anything but a jest.1 Leonardo having left his work on the horse unfinished, it was therefore, as Sir Frederick Smith remarks, " at the hands of Ruini that the subject of equine anatomy jumped at a single bound from the blackest ignorance to relative perfection, the degree of which it is difficult to exaggerate It should be added that Ruini's knowledge of human anatomy was very helpful to him in his studies on the horse.Ruini's-treatise,2 which passed through some fifteen editions (exclusive of pirated versions) between 1598 and 1769, but which nevertheless is little known, is divided into the following five books, each with its own series of wood engravings :Book I.-" Animal Parts." Head : mouth, tongue, teeth at different ages, muscles, vessels, glands, skull, brain with its membranes, nerves and ventricles, sense organs. Book II.-" Spiritual Parts." Neck and Thorax : skeleton, muscles, hyoid, larynx, nerves and vessels of neck, heart and its valves, trachea, lungs and pleurae, diaphragm. Book III.-" Nutritive Parts." Abdomen : gut and its glands, peritoneum and mesentery, spleen, renal organs, great vessels of abdomen and portal vein, abdominal muscles, vertebral column and spinal cord, sacrum, pelvis and tail. Book IV.-" Generative Parts." Genitalia : reproductive organs of both sexes and their vessels, development of horse, gravid uterus and placenta, foetus -- its envelopes and circulatory system, foramen ovale. Book V.-" Outlying Parts." Limbs : bones, muscles, vessels and nerves of fore and hind limbs. Added to Book V are seven figures of , a diagrammatic character summarizing the more important features of the skeleton, veins and arteries, nerves and muscles. The reconstructions of the arteries, veins and nerves recall vividly the least inspired and convincing efforts of Vesalius. This is especially true of Ruini's schematic figure of the portal vein.Ruini is one of the many anatomists who has had thrust upon him the honour of having demonstrated the circulation of the blood before Harvey (E. B. Krumbhaar, Ann. Med. Hist. N.S. 1 (1929), and in 1869 a tablet was erected in the School of Veterinary Science at Bologna recording this fiction.There is, however, no doubt that Ruini, as regards the circulation, was still dominated by Galenic ideas, and therefore has no claim to be associated with Harvey in this discovery. He has in fact very little to say on the circulation, and his language is not only brief but by no means free from ambiguity. Nowhere does he show any appreciation of the crucial fact that the object of the valves of the heart and vessels is to ensure an ever onward flow of the blood. As regards the heart he suggests that t

        Thesaurus et armamentarium medico-chymicum.Venice, Johann Gabriel Hertz, 1707. 4 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. With engraved title-page. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

      Blake, p. 318; Thorndike, pp. 84-86. Third Venice edition of a medical work by the German alchemist Adrian von Mynsicht (1603-1638). "One of the most frequently reprinted works of medical pharmacy was the Thesaurus of Adrian Mynsicht (1603-1638), an M.D. of Helmstedt who became physician to the duke of Mecklenburg and others... It purported to reveal to the "sons of doctrine and wisdom" a most secret way of compounding drugs based on his own experience and practice" (Thorndike). He was a follower of Paracelsus, opposing the Galenic theory in believing that illnesses were caused by chemical processes instead of fluctuation of the humors. Von Mynsincht was the first to describe emetic tartar. At the end of the text is a small treatise concerning the philosopher's stone. The work is followed by three smaller works by Carolus Musitanus, Andreas Battimelli and Hieronymus Piperus, who wrote additions to Mynsicht's Thesaurus. With a faint stamp on title-page, and a frequently appearing faint library stamp on pages throughout the book. Browned and foxed throughout, with frequent waterstains and some occasional spots. Overall a good copy.

Impreso por primera vez en 1602 en Lyon(1) (reeditado ese mismo año en Paris y en 1603 en Rouen), esta segunda edición corregida y ampliada de Paris, 1603, es la primera de las reelaboraciones que Boguet hizo de su propia obra hasta 1610. La obra responde a las actuaciones que Boguet llevó a cabo en la campaña contra la brujería desatada por toda Europa, curiosamente, en los territorios más rurales en los que estaba más asentado el protestantismo en los últimos años del s. XVI y primeros del XVII(2). Boguet aprovecha para dar cuenta de los juicios en los que participó, de qué tipo de posesión se trataba, si libraron a las convictas de sus demonios, los motivos de las condenas, y va insertando sus opiniones sobre diferentes materias, desde su prevención hacia el uso de la tortura hasta como es la fornicación entre un diablo y una bruja, un aquelarre (o sabbat), si las brujas pueden tener descendencia y si pueden tenerla de Satán, o cómo se transforma una persona en bestia, especialmente en lobo. El tratado finaliza con una carta a un abogado, Daniel Romanet, con una instrucción articulada sobre cómo llevar a cabo todas las fases del proceso de un caso de brujería en el que, ya desde el principio la mera sospecha se convierte en razón suficiente para su detención e interrogatorio, durante el cual la persona detenida debía (si podía) demostrar su inocencia. Para situar la actuación de Boguet hay que tener en cuenta que el Franco-condado pertenecía entonces a la corona española y que, cuando Felipe II quiso nombrar un inquisidor general como delegado de la Inquisición en aquel terriotrio, las autoridades locales (el parlamento de Dole) se resistieron diciendo que eso excedía las prerrogativas de Felipe II y que ellos mismos se encargarían de la persecución de las herejías. Así lo hicieron con el nombramiento por el arzobispo de Besançon, Ferdinand de Rye, en 1596, del jurista local Henry Boguet como gran juge, juez mayor, para esos procesos en la tierra de Saint-Cla [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Discours exécrable des sorciers ensemble leur Procez, faits depuis 2 ans en çà, en divers endroicts de la France. Avec une instruction pour un juge, en faict de sorcelerie. (sic)

      à Rouen, chez Jean Osmont, 1603, in 12, de 12ff. 306pp. 21ff. de table, pl. vélin époque, titre à la plume au dos, qq. rousseurs en marge (ex-libris gravé 18e comte Brochant du Breuil, conseiller au Parlement) Sans doute la seconde édition de ce rarissime manuel de démonologie, paru pour la première en 1602 (seul Yve-Plessis donne la date de 1590, invalidée par le cat. BNF). Boguet était "Grand Juge au Comté de Bourgogne", son livre eut une autorité immense, selon Michelet. Il n'y eut jamais juge plus scrupuleusement exterminateur et entre les plus féroces démonologues, il se distingua par son atrocité naïve. Sa renommée de brûleur féroce a traversé les siècles. Le premier cas rapporté est celui de Louise Maillat âgée de huit ans "possédée de cinq démons & par après délivrée & Françoise Secretain faite prisonnière pour lui avoir baillé le mal." Françoise Secretain avoua entre autres choses que: "le Diable l'avait connue charnellement, quatre ou cinq fois, tantost en forme de chien, tantost en forme de chat & tantost en forme de poule & que sa semence était fort froide." Mais la "forme de poule" rend perplexe le Grand Juge. "Je me doute qu'au lieu d'une poule, elle n'ai voulu dire un oison pour ce que le diable se transforme souvent en oison, d'où est venu le proverbe, que Satan a des pieds d'oie". Il étudia aussi dans sa carrière, 9 cas de lycanthropie.

        ORLANDO FURIOSO di M. Lodovico Ariosto, tutto Ricorretto et di Nuove Figure Adornato

      Venetia: Vencenzo Valgrifi, 1603. A very early printing of the complete and corrected ORLANDO FURIOSO, also with the Life of Ariosto by Battista Pigna. Letters, tables and scholarly critical works by Ruscelli and others. Magnificently illustrated with 51 full-page woodcut engravings within ornate borders, using the blocks from the first Valgrisi quarto editon of 1556 (46 in the ORLANDO, 5 additional in the appended ?Cinque Canti?), also with engraved architectural titlepage, imprint set in type in a cartouche in the lower part of the border, type ornament with the title, medallion portrait of Ariosto from the Giolito portrait of 1542 from the profile by Titian, devices of Ariosto and Valgrisi?s serpent device, half titles and beautifully engraved decorated large head and tail pieces and large historiated and arabesqe capital initials, printed in double column, Italic. 4to, full antique Italian vellum over stiff boards, spine with terra-cotta morocco label lettered and decorated in gilt. *8, A - Z8; Aa - Vv8; ie [xvi], 654, [32]. A very handsome copy in proper period binding. The paper just likely mellowed and toned by time, very occasionally, headlines slightly shaved, first gathering cropped a bit, the vellum very well preserved, sturdy and handsome. RARE AND EARLY ILLUSTRATED PRINTING OF ONE OF THE FOUR CORNERSTONES OF ITALIAN LITERATURE. Ariosto?s great cantos inspired by the crusades are considered his crowning achievement. Though first published in 1516 Ariosto considered this edition incomplete and imperfect. He continued to work on correcting and enlarging it throughout the remainder of his life thus the first ?complete? ORLANDO FURIOSO was not produced till 1532, the year prior to the author?s death by consumption. The extraordinary merits of this work cast into oblivion the numberless romantic poetry which inundated Italy during this period. This flawless work powerful, elegant and cultivated. In description and narrative he excites the reader?s deepest feelings and displays a vivacity of fancy with which no other poet can vie. ?The ORLANDO blocks were cut for Valgrisi?s first quarto edition of 1556 and follow Niccolo Zoppino?s idea of providing one illustration to each canto but going far beyond the Zoppino blocks in skill of design and cutting. They are the first full-page illustrations for Ariosto. They were placed in the instructive tradition of the Marcolini Dante, the illustration is mentioned on the title-page and at the beginning of Ruscelli?s 1556 dedication to Alfonso d?Este, Duke of Ferrara. Ruscelli explains to the reader the application of the rules of perspective to the multiple scenes in these cuts. The upper part of the block often becomes a map, offering, as Philip Hofer notes, a tour of the canto by hippogryph. Valgrisi?s artist often varied from Giolito?s in his choice of the principal scene for illustration and relegated the Giolito subjects to his background. Valgrisi?s blocks are printed within borders with figures and grotesques. He was able to use the same blocks without borders in an octavo of 1556 for the popular market. There are two different border designs for the illustrations and two smaller cherub borders for the ?argomento? to each canto.?

        ORLANDO FURIOSO and I CINQUE CANTI

      Venice: F. Valgrisi and N. Moretti, 1603. Early Printing. Hardcover. Some of the impressions are weak, but most are quite presentable. Trimmed at the top close to the text and plate lines, affecting one line of text in the dedication; other margins quite adequate. Vellum soiled. Very Good or better. Large octavo (7" x 10") bound in early full vellum, [16] 654 [32] pages. The complete and corrected ORLANDO FURIOSO, with Ruscelli's dedication to the Duke of Ferrara dated 1556 and an account of the life of Ariosto by Battista Pigna. Illustrated with an engraved title page, 51 full-page woodcuts, ornamental headpieces, and initial letters. The woodcuts, within decorative borders, are after the designs of Dossa Dossi, the Ferrarese painter, and are printed from the blocks of the first Valgrisi quarto editon of 1556. First published in 1516, this classic Italian romantic epic influenced many later works including Spenser's THE FAERIE QUEENE and Shakespeare's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The action takes place against the background of the war between Charlemagne and his Christian paladins and the Saracen army which is attempting to invade Europe. However, Ariosto has little concern for historical or geographical accuracy, and the poem wanders at will from Japan to the Hebrides, as well as including many fantastical and magical elements, such as a trip to the moon and an array of fantastical creatures including a gigantic sea monster called the orc and the hippogriff. The poem grew in popularity as well in size after Ariosto's death, increasing from 40 to 46 cantos in 1532 and finally to the finished form of 51 cantos.

Small 4to (19 x 14 cm). With the woodcut coat of arms of the dedicatee Juan Fernández de Velasco, Duke of Frías, on the title-page. Mottled tanned sheepskin (ca. 1800?), gold-tooled spine.

      Goldsmith, BMC Spanish & Portuguese S225; USTC 5018554 (mixed with 2? other eds.); cf. Palau 293612. Rare reprint (rarely distinguished from the more common first edition of 1603) of an important Spanish account of King Sebastião I of Portugal's ill-fated 1578 invasion of Moroccan and his death in battle, copying the 1603 edition's imprint, date, woodcut arms on the title-page and even the typesetting errors and list of errata. King Sebastião I of Portugal (1554-1578) inherited the crown at age three after the death of his grandfather João III. Educated by Jesuits, he combined religious fanaticism with an unbounded admiration for the military, presenting himself as a Christian knight who would fight the "misguided" Muslims in Africa and rescue them from their faith. He got his chance when the deposed Moroccan Sultan Abu Abdallah Mohammed II asked for his help. In 1578 Sebastião invaded Morocco with a large and expensive force, joined by Abu Abdallah's army of Moors and other Muslim opponents of the Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. Although Ahmad died during the invasion, Sebastião's inexperience and rash attack in the bloody and disastrous Battle of the Three Kings at Alcazarquivir in the north of Morocco led to his own death, that of 8000 Portuguese troops, including much of the Portuguese nobility, and the capture of 15,000 more. Sebastião's body was never found and many supporters refused to believe had died and awaited his return for decades. San Román indicates on the title-page that he made use of Girolami Franchi Conestaggio's 1585 history of the union of Spain and Portugal, but also many other authentic documents. Sebastião's death without issue set off a struggle for the succession to the Portuguese crown and after the brief reign of his great uncle as Henrique I, King Phillip II of Spain managed to unite the Spanish and Portuguese crowns in 1580. The present reprint dates after ca. 1660, probably from Pedro II's regency, when it would have served to bolster the legitimacy of the troubled monarchy.With an old library shelf-mark on an endleaf. With tears into the text of the last 2 leaves, one crudely repaired with tape, somewhat browned throughout, water stains in the foot margin of several leaves, and an occasional small hole, spot or stain, but with generous margins and most leaves in good condition. The binding with minor damage to the head of the spine and some corners, but otherwise very good. A close copy of the first edition (much rarer than the original) of an important record of the disastrous Portuguese invasion of Morocco in 1578.

      Ad 1: Alden & Landis 651/53; Borba de Moraes, p. 19; ad 2: Alden & Landis 651/110; Borba de Moraes, pp. 634-635. First editions of two complementary works, in matching format, similar layout and beautifully and extensively illustrated, devoted to the lives, history and military careers of the three most important stadtholders and Princes of Orange to the time of publication, including a great deal of information on the Dutch conquests, trade and commerce in the Americas in general and Brazil in particular. In the present copy the engraved title-pages, portraits, coat of arms and illustrations are all beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand, most of them highlighted in gold. Truusje Goedings, expert in 17th-century Dutch colourists, has identified the colouring as the work of Frans Koerten (1603-1668), the most acclaimed Dutch colourist of the middle of the 17th century.Something must have gone wrong with the printing or colouring of Maurits's portrait, for one can see that the portrait was printed on the leaf, but another print from the same plate has been pasted over it as a cancel.With a small tear in the foot of one map and water stains at the foot of the leaves in both works, but otherwise in very good condition. The bindings have cracks in the joints. Beautifully coloured copies of two magnificently illustrated works on the Princes of Orange and Dutch activities in Brazil and elsewhere.

        Paesaggio con grande albero

      1603 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1603, datata e monogrammata in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa rara opera è parte di una serie di sei incisioni, della stessa misura e stile, datata 1603, estremamente all'avanguardia nella crescente passione fiorentina per il paesaggio. Furono anche forieri di un rinnovato interesse della città per l'incisione, che si sarebbe poi sviluppato ulteriormente negli anni a venire, principalmente sotto il patronato della famiglia Medici. Data la mancanza di punti di riferimento nazionali, l'artista cercò un modello nell'incisore nordico Paul Bril, al quale sembra essersi ispirato per la realizzazione di questa opera, in particolare al suo Paesaggio Montano con Eremita in Preghiera (Hollstein 3) o alle Vedute della Campagna Romana, datate 1590. Bril fu attivo in Francia e in Italia e morì a Roma nel 1626. Nelle composizioni di entrambi gli artisti, un enorme albero in primo piano forma il motivo principale, affiancato da un lato da elementi architettonici nella zona mediana e, dall'altro, da una veduta in lontananza. Per questa opera, Cantagallina sottopose la lastra a due diversi momenti di morsura per ottenere linee di diverso peso. La vista sullo sfondo che si intravede oltre gli edifici sulla sinistra è infatti piuttosto leggera, mentre le linee più ampie che delineano l’argine roccioso e le piante in basso al centro sono state evidentemente ottenute con una esposizione all’acido più prolungata. L’effetto che si ottiene è quello di un set da palcoscenico, con piani di recessione sfalsati, piuttosto che quello di una reale prospettiva. È stato poi usato il bulino per imbrunire le foglie in alto a sinistra nell'albero centrale e dare maggior vigore a quelle in alto a destra. Famoso principalmente per i suoi paesaggi realizzati a penna e inchiostro, Remigio Cantagallina fu attivo a Firenze per più di cinquanta anni, durante i quali realizzò più di sessanta incisioni datate tra il 1603 e il 1635. Oltre la metà delle sue opere rappresentano paesaggi, mentre molte altre sono rappresentazioni di festival e soggetti teatrali. Nativo di Borgo San Sepolcro, Cantagallina raggiunse la sua maturità artistica intorno al 1600. È possibile attribuirgli un solo dipinto, frutto della collaborazione artistica col fratello Antonio. Si tratta dell’Ultima Cena, realizzato dai due artisti nel 1604 per un monastero della loro città natale. Insieme ad Antonio e all'altro fratello Giovanni Francesco, anch’essi registrati come allievi, Cantagallina studiò presso la scuola di Giulio Parigi a Firenze. Mantenne una relazione lavorativa con Parigi per anni, incidendo i suoi soggetti teatrali e di festival. Potrebbe essere stato lui stesso ad incoraggiare Parigi, nel 1608, a rivolgere la propria abilità di artista verso l’incisione, per un lavoro a più mani in cui lui stesso fu partner. La potenza espressiva della morsura realizzata in più fasi di Cantagallina influenzò sicuramente Jacques Callot, con cui collaborò nel 1616 alla realizzazione di Guerra d’Amore. Nelle prime opere, i paesaggi di Cantagallina riflettono i prototipi dei panorami settentrionali; esiste tuttavia una serie di quattro incisioni più piccole, datate 1609 e rappresentanti eventi religiosi, di stile più miniaturistico, in cui le figure sono più briose e più vicine a quelle dei disegni di Parigi. I disegni dell’artista, molti dei quali datati, includono anche un album che documenta una gita nella parte settentrionale dei Paesi Bassi (1612-1613). L’ultimo disegno conosciuto è datato 1655. Nelle ultime opere Cantagallina era solito posizionare un enorme albero, di teatrale memoria, in primo piano; lo stile e l'esecuzione sono man mano divenuti topograficamente più accurati e più atmosferici. Etching and engraving, 1603, dated and signed at lower right. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with thin margins, in exce [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Polesino di Rovigo

      Bologna 1603 - - RARISSIMA TIRATURA ORIGINALE di G. A. MAGINI, prima del cartiglio in basso a sinistra - Prima, rarissima, versione della carta del Polesine del Magini, antecedente alla versione successivamente publicata postuma dal figlio Fabio nel 'L’Italia di Giovanni Antonio Magini', stampato per la prima volta a Bologna nel 1620. Tutte le carte dell’atlante vennero alle stampe prima del 1620, nelle loro stesure provvisorie, che successivamente furono corrette ed aggiornate per l’edizione definitiva. Tali prove sono rarissime, talvolta si trovano occasionalmente negli atlanti fattizi di alcune biblioteche, e presentano differenze sostanziali con quelle poi incluse nell’atlante. La differenza maggiore in questa mappa consiste nella mancanza del cartiglio, che verrà poi inserito in basso a sinistra. Il cartiglio contiene la dedica di Fabio Magini. Come osserva Almagià, la datazione e le fonti di questa carta maginiana, rappresentano una questione abbastanza complessa. Sembra certo che il Magini attinga informazioni da Giovanni Bonifacio, come desunto da diverse lettere di questi inviate al cartografo padovano. In particolare l'opera sarebbe una fusione tra la mappa del territorio Trevigiano del Rover/Bonifacio del 1591 (Bifolco-Ronca tav. 53) e la carta del Polesine del 1602 (Bifolco-Ronca tav. 57) che il Bonifacio inviò al Magini, come risulta da una lettera del 28 gennaio 1603. Per la realizzazione delle lastre il Magini si servì di due dei più famosi intagliatori dell’epoca; il belga Arnorldo Arnoldi e l’inglese Benjamin Wright. Il presente esemplare mostra un'evidente serie di "difetti" di morsura, dovuti all'acido nell'uso dell'acquaforte. Tali "difetti" e le evidenti tracce di non pulitura della lastra, oltre al segno fresco e ricco di toni dell'incisione, lasciano pensare che questa sia una prova di stampa della lastra. Acquaforte e bulino, in perfetto stato di conservazione. RARISSIMA. Almagià, L'Italia di Giovanni Antonio Magini, pp. 44-5, n. 10. Dimensioni 475 345mm

        Lativm nunc Campagna di Roma/Istria

      Colonia 1603 - Rarissima carta geografica, due carte stampate al verso e al recto del foglio, tratte dal "elitiae Italiae et index viatorius, indicans itinera ab urbe Roma ad omnes in Italia". Cyprian Eichovius è lo pseudonimo di Matthias Quad (Deventer 1557 - Colonia 1613). Come spesso succedeva all'epoca per sfuggire alle persecuzioni cattoliche contro i protestanti Matthias Quad usò per la sua attività diversi pseudoni mi, tra cui quelli noti di C. Eichovius, M. Quadus, M. Quad von Kinckelbach e quello di Konrad Loew. Fuggito dall'Olanda in Germania nel 1587, studiò ad Heidelberg e divenne poi uno dei più prolifici esponenti della cosiddetta Scuola Cartografica di Colonia, durata per circa mezzo secolo (1570-1620 ca.) e formata principalmente da rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi tra i quali spiccano lo stesso Quad e Frans Hogenberg che ne fu il fondatore. Nel 1594 Quad pub blica a Colonia Europae, totius terrarum orbis partis praestantissimae descriptio. Nel 1596 ca., sempre a Colonia pubblica Typus Orbis Terrarum, ad Imitationem Universalis Gerhardi Mercatoris, un planisfero sulla base dell'opera marcatoria-na e nel 1600 pubblica il suo primo atlante mondiale autonomo: Geographisch Handtbuch, che è anche il primo edito in lingua tedesca. Nel 1608 ne uscì una edizione in latino Fasciculus Geographicus con quattro mappe inedite incise da Johann Bussemacher, suo assiduo collaboratore. A causa dei suoi numerosi pseudonimi la sua vasta produzione editoriale rimane ancora da identificare completamente. Le carte del Quad ebbero poca fortuna poiché stampate nel periodo dei grandi successi degli atlanti Orteliani; pertanto nessuna ristampa dell’atlante è nota, rendendolo rarissimo e molto ricercato nel mercato antiquario.

        Russiae, Moscoviae et Tartariae descriptio. Auctore Antonio Ienkesono Anglo, edita Londini Anno 1562

      Anversa 1603 - Decorativa mappa della Russia basata, come espressamente dichiarato nel cartiglio con il titolo, sul lavoro di Anthony Jenkinson, edito a Londra nel 1562. Jenkinson compì diversi viaggi in Russia: nel 1559, 1561, 1566, 1567, e basò le sue mappe proprio sulle sue dirette osservazioni. Per la parte orientale di questa carta, si servì anche del lavoro di S. Herberstein, mentre per parte occidentale sulla mappa di A. Wied. La mappa è ricca di cartigli con testo di carattere storico ed etnografico. Decorano la mappa numerose vignette raffiguranti indigeni, animali e scene mitologiche. Splendido esemplare, pubblicato nell'edizione latina del 1603 del Theatrum Ortbis Terrarum. Incisione su rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Testo latino al verso. Decorative map of Russia by Ortelius. The cartographic source for this work, as declarated on the left cartouche, is Jenkinson's 1562 Russia map (Karrow 43/1, p. 318; Meurer p. 175-176). Anthony Jenkinson travelled in Russia in 1559, 1561, 1566 and 1567 and much was based on his own observations. Additionally, for the Eastern part of this map Jenkinson based himself on Herberstein, for the Western part on Wied. The vignettes include over a dozen indigenous and mythical scenes, costumed locals and animals. Copper engraving, finely hand coloured, in perfect condition. Latin text on verso. Example printed in the 1603 Latinb edition of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. Ort 162 (Koeman/Meurer: 46, Karrow: 1/66, vdKrogtAN: 1800:31). Dimensioni 452 357mm

Er ging an die Universität Leipzig und hörte dort bei dem berühmten französischen Juristen Pierre Loriot, der von der Universität Bourges gekommen war, als Vertreter der sogenannten humanistischen Jurisprudenz. Coler wurde später aber stark von den großen sächsischen Praktikern an der Universität Leipzig, zum Beispiel Modestinus Pistorius und Christoph Zobel, beeinflußt. Seine Professur in Jena gab er im Jahre 1569 auf, um als Rechtsanwalt in Leipzig seine berufliche Laufbahn fortzusetzen. Er wurde dort sogar Mitglied des sächsischen Appellationsgerichts. Im Jahre 1573 kehrte er an die Universität Jena zurück, wo er Ordinarius primarius der juristischen Fakultät wurde. Seine Schriften, allen voran seine überragende Darstellung des Prozeßrechts, gehören zu den wichtigsten prozessualen und juristischen Schriften im 16. und 17. Jahrhundert in Deutschland.

With 2 folding engraved maps, 15 folding engraved plates and 1 engraved plate, all except one signed by Daniel Veelwaard. Later green half cloth

      - Bierens de Haan 945; Kemper 1603; Saakes IV (1804), pp. 19, 50. First edition of an illustrated report on water management, published by three leading technical officers on behalf of the water board of Rijnland, here complete with all four appendices, sometimes lacking. In their report, Frederik Willem Conrad (1769-1805), Arie Blanken Jansz. (1766-1824) and Simon Kros (1746-1813) evaluate the several possibilities of connecting the river Oude Rijn with the North Sea. In 1803 a research commission chaired by Conrad came up with the present report, providing a definite scheme and an acceptable calculation of the costs. The water board accepted the proposals later that year and preparations for realizing the drainage canal commenced. In 1807 the outlet was completed, providing Rijnland with an excellent facility that proved its great benefits in the long term. The report includes several printed appendices and 18 engraved maps, profiles and technical drawings. Besides 2 overview maps, they include engravings showing several tracks of the proposed channel, detailed cross-sections, and profiles of soil test bores and the instruments used. Only very slightly browned, margins of a few plates slightly soiled, otherwise in very good condition. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities.
