         Compendio delle sontuose feste fatte l’anno MDCVIII nella città di Mantova per le reali nozze del Serenissimo Principe D. Francesco Gonzaga con la Serenissima Infante Margherita di Savoia

      Mantua: Aurelio & Lodovico Osanna, 1608. 4to (194x140 mm). [8], 149, [1 blank] pp. and 1 folding engraved plate (Disegno della battaglia navale et del castello de fuochi trionfali fatti…, 230x350 mm). Signatures: [Ï€]4 A-T4. Leaf [Ï€]4 is a blank. Lacking the final blank leaf and a second folding plate (Dissegno del carro…), which is often missing. Contemporary flexible vellum with inked title on spine (bottom of spine and large portion of front panel restored, lacking ties). Book block partly detached from the front cover, lacking the lower outer corner of the front flyleaf, some marginal foxing, a few stains to leaves 46-49, but all in all a very good, genuine copy.First edition, dedicated by Federico Follino to Margherita Gonzaga, the sister of the spouse. The dedication is dated 1 July 1608. The chaplain Federico Follino was responsible for the design and organization of the festivities for the marriage of Francesco Gonzaga and Margaret of Savoy. The plate shows the mock naval battle and the castle built on a platform in the middle of the Mantua lake, work of the engineer Daniele Bertazzolo.The description, among other things, contains the full text of Ottavio Rinuccini's Arianna (pp. 29-66), set to music by Claudio Monteverdi, at the time choirmaster of the duke of Mantua, and performed during the festivities. Rinuccini, invited from Florence, had written the libretto on purpose for the occasion. The account describes in detail the staging of the opera, which lasted two hours and half. The libretto of the Arianna was published as a separate text three times in the same year, 1608, at Florence, Mantua, and Venice.After that, were staged the Idropica (pp. 72-99), a comedy by Battista Guarini, with the intermezzi by Gabriello Chiabrera and a music prologue by Monteverdi, and Il ballo delle ingrate ('The Ballet of the Ungrateful Ladies', pp. 129-134), a semi-dramatic ballet written by Rinuccini and set to music by Monteverdi. The representation of the Ifigenia (pp. 142-149) by Alessandro Striggio closed the celebrations."The 1608 luxurious feasts for the marriage of prince Francesco to Infanta Margherita of Savoia maybe the most impressive expression of Vincenzo Gonzaga' taste and cultural-political design. Federico Follino provides us with a precious Compendio of them, which includes all the texts of the spectacles and two plates, which illustrate the naumachia planned by Bertazzolo. By analyzing Follino' text the festival and spectacular events of the entire cycle were reconstructed; furthermore it is noticed how the court was most attentive to all the spectacular novelties and excellences like the 'commedia musicale' or the ballet as autonomous genre, as well as to the more known spectacular varieties. It is also pointed out how a great importance was attributed to the scenic aspects and the stage-designing skill of the time" (A. Mignatti, Compendio delle sontuose feste…, in: R. Brunelli, ed., "Vincenzo I Gonzaga 1562-1612. Il fasto pel potere", Mantua, 2012, pp. 159-162).This festival book is extremely rare on the market. Of the recorded copies, only a few have both plates.Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\MUS\0319364; Sartori, Libretti italiani a stampa, 5974; Watanabe-O'Kelly & Simon, Festivals and ceremonies, 463.

Fine engraved & coloured title page, imprint date on title page changed in the plate from 1607 to 1608, text in French - Dutch version issued earlier the same year under the title: 'Wapenhandlinghe'. Plates with contemporary colouring, ornate title page with the arms of Maurice, Prince of Orange (shield with bugles & lions rampant), fully coloured and 117 plates with figures and arms fully coloured & including the extensive use of silver in colouring & occasional use of gold, excellent margins throughout. The principal, classic and important work of Jacob de Gheyn (1565-1615). Not in STC, corresponds to title page variant 3 of STC 11810-1 with French text. Front endpapers creased, title page browned with old dampstain to tail of title page, lower fore-edge corner torn with slight loss, plates occasionally browned & marked, mostly confined to outer margins & with a damp stain at end lightly affecting the final 2 plates, otherwise contents very good, bound in near contemporary full brown stained vellum, blind stamped rules to boards & spine with a paper title label in ink, worn, rubbed & spine darkened, however sound, tight & very good condition."The most influential military manual of the 17th century which provides instructions for handling arquebuses, pikes and muskets, together with standardized commands for drill masters. The detailed collection of plates provide step-by-step guidance for using weaponry, as well as depicting contemporary military dress, each image appears to be a real portrait of an individual Musketeer. Not necessarily affordable for soldiers, but was aimed at gentlemen in command of militias. Jacob de Gheyn II (also Jacques de Gheyn II) (c.1565-1629) a Dutch painter & draughtsman was renowned as a master engraver. He was born in Antwerp and received his first training from his father. He moved to Leiden in the 1590's where his work attracted the attention of wealthy sponsors and his first commission was from Maurice of Nassau, Prince of Orange. He originally produced the 117 engravings for the military manual in the 1590s, on the instruction of Maurice of Orange, but they were not published as engravings until 1607-8. Some of the plates in this work are signed by him." References: cf Spaulding & Karpinski 80; Cockle 79. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Sin marcas, anotaciones ni subrayados.- // Proc.: Sin datos.- // Refs.: No aparece en las bibliografías.- // Esta rarísima versión francesa de la que solo localizamos noticia de otro ejemplar(1), reune dos de los más célebres textos escatológicos, a los que actualmente se clasifica denro de la corriente apocalíptica bizantina.El primero, la Oratio de consumatione mundi (homilía del fin del mundo), es un texto que, atribuido al obispo Hipólito (¿-235), había circulado ampliamente como manuscrito en versiones griegas y latinas en la Edad Media, pero que no pasó por la imprenta hasta que, en 1556, Jean Picot, presidente de las Chambres des Enquêtes del Parlamento de Paris, editó el tetxo griego con traducción anotada al latín a partir de un manuscrito conservado en Venecia, en un impreso que posteriormente adquirió mucha fama, si bien es cierto que en gran medida se debió a que circuló la confusión de que los comentarios eran de mano de Pico della Mirandola(2). En todo caso, la oratio de pseudo-Hipólito había recuperado su protagonismo en la escatología cristiana como una de las versiones estándar del apocalipsis que culmina en el fin de los tiempos con la segunda llegada de Jesucristo, quizás porque hace más énfasis en las catástrofes, en el declive moral y en la propagación de doctrinas heréticas(3). A título de curiosidad, el Psuedo-Hipólito es el único apocalipsis en interpretar la clave 666 del Anticristo como APNOYME, 'yo niego'.El segundo de los textos recogidos, el Apocalipsis de pseudo-Metodio, atribuido inicialmente a Metodio de Patara, víctima de Diocleciano hacia el 312, fue obra de un autor desconocido de la Alta Mesopotamia de finales del siglo séptimo, que lo escribió en siríaco, circulando manuscrito en numerosas lenguas en contacto con Bizancio. Frente a las profecías cristiano bizantinas del apocalipsis al uso el autor de esta introdujo novedades de actualidad en el relato que justificarían su difusión, como la emergencia del Islam y un nuevo personaje, el 'último emperador', que lo combatirá y restaurará la felicidad anterior al diluvio, hasta que el mal (personificado en Gog y Magog) regrese dando paso al reinado del Anticristo que sería posteriormente derrotado por el Mesías para su reinado milenario. El texto circuló manuscrito, con traducciones a diversas lenguas, a lo largo de la Edad Media, e impreso, siempre en latín, desde 1475(4).Respecto al traductor, Jacques Desmay, por las portadas de sus diferentes publicaciones -de algunas, como de esta, solo localizamos la existencia de un ejemplar- puede averiguarse que, siendo bachiller en Teología por la Sorbona y canónigo en Peronne, escribió una biografía hagiográfa de san Fursa, patrón de la localidad, que imprimió en 1607 en París (reediciones en 1623 y en 1714), en el taller de Eustache Foucault, impresor para quien también tradujo ese mismo año L'Horloge de dévotion sur la vie et passion de Jésus-Christ, de Bertoldo el Teutónico(5). A ellas siguió al año siguiente en la misma imprenta la traducción de estos textos de la escatología apocalíptica cristiana que ofrecemos, en los que, habiendo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Trattati degli orologi

      Italie (Macerata ?), XVIIe siècle, in-8, 1 ff (1ere de couverture avec titre), 3 grandes planches de poncifs (2 depl. et 1 à double page) et 1 petit poncif découpé à la forme, [15] ff. de texte avec 1 petit papillon de texte et 3 petits poncifs découpés à la forme, [env. 140 x 200 mm] encre brune sur papier vergé, vélin moderne à la bradel, titre en long, planches en tête montées sur onglets, Très beau manuscrit, qui ressemble moins à un véritable "traité" de gnomonique qu'à un carnet de notes personnel, composé en partie sur des feuillets de remploi et enrichi de poncifs montés ultérieurement au début de l'ouvrage. Le premier feuillet forme la couverture d'origine, portant le titre en italien, Trattati degli orologi. La provenance de ce carnet est sans doute jésuite, puisque l'on y trouve, en tête, deux lettres-enveloppes de remploi, avec traces de cachets à la cire, à l'adresse d'un certain Giuseppe Alberti de la Compagnie de Jésus à Macerata, peut-être l'auteur de ce travail ; les dates de ces lettres sont, hélas, difficilement lisibles ([15]99 et 1608 ?). Le carnet a été relié avec 7 poncifs figurant des tracés pour cadrans : 3 grands poncifs, qui ouvrent le traité ; et 4 petits poncifs, découpés à la forme, l'un relié au début de l'ouvrage et les autres contrecollés en marge d'un feuillet de texte. Ces poncifs se reconnaissent aux petits trous qui transpercent le papier en suivant le contour du dessin et qui permettent le report du motif sur une surface par application de poudre de charbon de bois : l'utilisation de charbon explique, par ailleurs, l'aspect noirci de ces feuilles. Le texte comprend deux parties assez distinctes : la première, écrite en latin, comporte des méthode pour tracer des cadrans et réaliser des mesures ; la seconde, en italien, donne plusieurs types de cadrans existant. L'ensemble est illustré de plusieurs figures tracées à la plume dans le texte : schémas mathématiques, tracés de cadrans et cadrans (cadran de berger, cadran cruciforme, cadran vertical mural, cadran diptyque, cadran intégré au contreplat d'un livre, anneau solaire, etc). En outre, l'auteur fait la démonstration intéressante de "cadrans-mains", qui permettent de connaître les heures sans instrument : - Une "horloge-main", graduée de 12 à 20, avec un style placé à la jonction entre le pouce et l'index, représentée à deux reprises. La première main est d'un dessin assez naïf et le dessinateur s'y est repris en réalisant un repentir pour le pouce et l'index. Pour la seconde main, il a remployé un dessin qui semble plus ancien, représentant à l'origine une main guidonienne (procédé mnémotechnique du XIe siècle mis au point par Guido d'Arezzo pour représenter les notes de musique), sur laquelle il a intégré les mêmes graduations. Ce type d'"horloge-main" est connu depuis le XVIe siècle au moins ; on en voit une apparaître dans les Annotationi sopra la lettione della spera del Sacro Bosco de Mauro di Firenze (1550). - Le second "cadran-main" prend la forme d'une horloge à deux mains, jointes par les pouces, qui forment une table horizontale, tandis que les index sont dressés à la verticale. Là aussi, le dessin est naïf et l'on discerne un repenti en-dessous. Cette méthode pour connaître l'heure solaire sans instrument est elle aussi attestée ; nous en trouvons la description chez un coreligionnaire, le père Bobynet qui, dans son Horographie Ingénieuse publiée pour la première fois en 1647 (Paris, Veuve de François Langlois), décrit plusieurs méthodes de "cadrans naturels", dont celui-ci, qui figure à la planche 21, et dont l'utilisation est détaillée aux pages 286 et suivantes. Bobynet affirme être le premier à décrire cette invention qui lui semble nouvelle, "ne l'ayant encore leuë dans aucun autheur". Le principe de ce "cadran naturel" est le suivant : "[il] est tout fait sur 4 doits, sçavoir le pouce & le suivant de chaque main, disposés en sorte qu'ils représentent à peu près un carré parfait (...) Tournez l'index d'une main vers le

Title page to text with two pasted on paper panels bearing the title and publishing details in Latin, all within an engraved surround (as issued), letterpress title to plates, engraved arms on dedication leaf, blank D6. 1 double-page engraved map of Virginia [Burden 76, state 2], 1 engraved plate of Adam and Eve (first state with inscription "Iodocus a Winghe in / / Theodore de Bry fe", 27 engraved plates after John White (including 5 plates of Picts), with blank D6 but without the final blank F6 (as in Church), various small neat expert repairs, three leaves misbound. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century blue/green morocco, covers with gilt roll tool border, the flat spine divided into six compartments with gilt roll tools and fillets, lettered in the second compartment, the others tooled with alternating neo-classical tools, 18th-century marbled endpapers A beautiful copy of the second edition, second issue of this foundation work on the early exploration and delineation of America which combines a critically important text with a series of spectacular images, all relating to the first British colony to be established on the sub-continent. This volume was the first issued by the publisher, Theodor De Bry, in his extraordinary series, "Grand Voyages," which set out to describe the exploration of the New World. This copy includes a variant title: Church does not mention an issue of the title with letterpress slips pasted in position, but the engraved surround corresponds most closely to Church's third issue. This work recounts the history of the abortive Roanoke colony established by the British in North Carolina in 1585. Thomas Hariot's text, describing the country of Virginia and North Carolina, was first published in London in 1588 (only six copies are known) and here republished in Latin. Hariot, like the artist, John White, was part of the Roanoke expedition and wrote his account from actual observation. It is the first description of the Virginia and Carolina country. The map which accompanies the volume is the first really good map of the Virginia coast and Carolina capes, showing the coast from the mouth of the Chesapeake to Wilmington, North Carolina. John White's illustrations are among the most famous of early American images. White was the lieutenant-governor of the colony, and a skilled artist. His carefully executed watercolors, gleaned from close observation and remarkably accurate renderings of the Carolina Indians and their customs, costumes, rituals, hunting practices and dwellings, are here expertly engraved by De Bry. No other artist so-carefully rendered American Indians until Karl Bodmer worked on the Missouri in the 1830s. Besides these illustrations, there are plates showing White's conception of the ancient Picts of Scotland, to whom he wished to compare the American natives. Cf. Arents 37; cf. Church 143-144; Cumming & de Vorsey 12; cf. European Americana 590/7; JCB I:396; cf. Sabin 8784; Vail 7 (note). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Arcere nudo

      1608 - Acquaforte, circa 1608/9 priva della firma. Della serie Capricci e Habiti Militari. Magnifica e rarissima prova nel primo stato di due (o di tre), impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, irregolarmente rifilata alla linea marginale, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La scarsità di notizie sulla vita dell’autore e la rarità delle sue incisioni rendono difficilissima la catalogazione delle opere. Secondo alcuni studiosi, il Liagno si interessa di incisione forse in seguito ad un incontro a Firenze con Jacques Callot. Secondo altri non vi sarebbero affinità, se non stilistiche, tra i due artisti. La serie dei Capricci e Habiti Militari è l’opera più importante e conosciuta dell’artista; consta di 12 lastre raffiguranti singole figure di soldati in differenti pose. La catalogazione della serie risulta piuttosto confusa a causa degli indirizzi di Giovanni Orlandi, editore attivo a Roma, differenti da lastra a lastra. Recenti studi tendono a catalogare due soli stati o edizioni; il primo recante il nome di Orlandi ed il secondo quello del De Rossi. Tuttavia, è possibile che questa sia una prova ante litteram, curata dallo stesso artista e antecedente alla collaborazione con l’Orlandi. La serie delle incisioni del Liagno avrà un impatto fondamentale sulla successiva e più celebrata serie di figure militari: le Figurine di Salvator Rosa. Magnifica prova di questa rarissima incisione. Etching, signed at the lower left. From the Capricci e Habiti Militari series. A very fine impression of the first state of two, printed with tone and showing a very good contrast, on contemporary paper without watermark, irregularly trimmed on the borderline, in perfect condition. To catalogue the works of Liagno is difficult, due to the fact that very little is known about his life, and that only few examples of his etchings are still existing. Some scholars suppose that Liagno got interested about graphic arts after he had met Jacques Callot in Florence ; the others instead presume that there was nothing but stylistic similarity between the two artists. Confusion to catalogue the Capricci e Habiti Militari arrives from the change of Giovanni Orlandi’s address (editor active in Naples ) from one plate to another. Recent studies mention just two states, the first with the address of Orlandi and the second with that of De Rossi. Museum of Capodimonte in Naples has got one example of this etching.
