Willem Janszoon BLAEU (Uitgeest 1571- Amsterdam 1638)
- Prima carte à figures della penisola - Incisione in rame, acquaforte e bulino, 1606, firmata e datata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel rarissimo primo stato di quattro, con la firma Guilelmus Iannsonius, edito nel 1606. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale e con margini aggiunti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Delicata coloritura coeva. I primi esempi delle così denominate "carte con figure", nascono nell'Olanda Meridionale del tardo '500. Una delle prime rappresentazioni di carta geografica decorata è il celebre Viaggio di Abramo di Ortelius, pubblicata nel Parergon del 1586. Per questa carta Ortelius si avvalse della collaborazione del pittore Maarten de Vos, che realizzò le scene per il bordo decorato. Jodocus Hondius, nel 1590, produce 3 piccole mappe di Inghilterra, Francia e Paesi Bassi con dei bordi decorati, seguito da Pieter van den Keere (Kaerius) che nel 1596 realizza una mappa decorata dell'Olanda. Ma lo sviluppo vero e proprio alle mappe con le decorazioni lo diedero la carta murale in 15 fogli dell'Europa di Jodocus Hondius (1595) e la carta del Mondo in 20 fogli di Willem J. Blaeu del 1605. Negli anni seguenti, il Blaeu realizzò diverse carte decorate di formato in-folio, a partire proprio dalla carta dell'Italia del 1606. Dal punto di vista cartografico, la mappa è interamente basata sulla carta di Mercator del 1589, che venne poi inserita anche negli atlanti Mercator & Hondius editi a partire dal 1606, in Amsterdam da Jodocus Hondius. La carta si presenta decorata su tre … [Click Below for Full Description]

This map is oriented west on top of the map. Copperplate engraving on verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Original recent hand colouring. Description: Published by Jodocus Hondius in Amsterdam 1606.Artists and Engravers: Mercator was born in Rupelmonde in Flanders and studied in Louvain under Gemma Frisius, Dutch writer, astronomer and mathematician. The excellence of his work brought him the patronage of Charles V, but in spite of his favor with the Emperor he was caught up in the persecution of Lutheran protestants and charged with heresy, fortunately without serious consequences. No doubt the fear of further persecution influenced his move in 1552 to Duisburg, where he continued the production of maps, globes and instruments. Mercator's sons and grandsons, were all cartographers and made their contributions in various ways to his atlas. Rumold, in particular, was responsible for the complete edition in 1595. The map plates were bought in 1604 by Jodocus Hondius who, with his sons, Jodocus II and Henricus, published enlarged editions which dominated the map market for the following twenty to thirty years. Condition: Excellent; general age related toning; some light staining from handling. The map shows very nice but has some weak spots and small tears / separations backed by japanese paper, paper and tape. Storage location: B17-31 The overall size is ca. 20.1 x 15.9 inch.

Johann Kepler (1571-1630) is one of the most important modern astronomers and mathematicians, along with his teacher Tycho Brahe and Galileo Galileo. Working at the court of the Emperor Rudolph II in Prague, he was able to improve the refracting telescope and formulate the fundamental laws of planetary motion correcting Copernicus. This invaluable account provides information on the supernova's colour, brightness, distance to the earth as well as other events related to this still unsolved astronomical phenomenon announcing the death of a star. The supernova was the last to be seen in the Milky Way and was named after Kepler in the 1940s. Its appearance revived the debate among scholars on whether the incorruptibility of the cosmos established by Aris … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antique print, titled: 'A la solsataria detta da Plinio campi Flegrei Strabone ' - Horse riders at an encampment near the center of a vulcano near Pozzuolo. Original etching and engraving on laid paper. "Description: No. 48 of a series: 'Vestigli della Antichita di Roma, Tivoli, Pozzuolo e altri locchi ' From a series of 52 published in Prague in 1606. Ref: Wurzbach 88(48). Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Aegidius II Sadeler' after own design. 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": 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 / Gilles was the father of Aegidius / Gilles 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." Condition: Very … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bacon, Francis
London: [By William Jaggard] for John Jaggard, 1606. First Jaggard edition (?piracy). Woodcut headpiece and printer's ornaments on title and "Of the Colours" section title, woodcut initials. [110] pp. Collation: A-G^8 (A1, G8 blank, --G8). Small 8vo. The Corser-Huth-Hartz-Pirie Copy. The first Jaggard edition and the fourth overall edition of the Essayes of statesman and philosopher Francis Bacon (1561-1626). Jaggard made no entry of this or his 1612 and 1613 editions of the Essayes in the Stationers' Register, and so it has been customary to regard his editions as piracies. Jackson gently disputes this notion in the note to Pforzheimer 29, suggesting that a later transfer of rights to Jaggard's widow in 1624, as well as the silence of Hopper and Beale (who did register their rights with the Stationers' Company), argues for Jaggard having some right to the Essayes. "In some manner, therefore, Jaggard must have himself secured 'rights' which the Stationers' Company regarded as transferable even though not previously entered in the Register" (Pforzheimer). In any case, a rare edition: we trace only this copy at auction. The Essayes, which went into numerous editions in the author's lifetime and eventually expanded from the 10 essays printed here to 58 in the 1625 edition, treat moral and political topics in "a terse, aphoristic style ... which Bacon conceived as a genre setting down discrete observations on life, and aspiring to some kind of objective validity" (ODNB). "In an age of complicated and superficial verbiage, [Bacon] turns the licence of imaginative and allusive ex … [Click Below for Full Description]

La première édition de l’Atlas paraîtra en 1585 avec les cartes de France, de Suisse, des Pays-Bas espagnols et de l’Allemagne.
