        Manoscritto su carta. Firenze 1610 - 1674

      1610. in - folio (mm 345x250), ff. 197 vergati al recto e al verso, legatura originale in pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso e al piatto anteriore. Al primo foglio di guardia emblema della compagnia, ultimo f., con strappo nel margine inferiore, dedica manoscritta "All'illustrissimo Sig. Cavalieri". Si tratta di un dettagliato elenco, compilato da diverse mani, delle battute di caccia intraprese dalla Compagnia dei Piattelli dal 28 ottobre 1610 al 10 novembre 1674 in varie località del territorio fiorentino (Pratolino, Vezzano, Sommaia, Monte Loro..). Per ogni caccia sono trascritti i nomi dei partecipanti, la nota delle prede, i conti delle spese, la distribuzione della selvaggina cacciata. Sono inserite 4 grandi tavole ripiegate f.t. (mm 565x430, 650x445, 530x415, 325x410) con acquerelli raffiguranti l'allestimento di grandi carri trionfali decine di lepri sono disposte su alberi e navi addobbati con vessilli e emblemi della Compagnia dei Piattelli. Importante testimonianza storica del tutto inedita relativa all'attività venatoria di una delle più prestigiose compagnie fiorentine del XVI - XVII secolo. La Compagnia venatoria dei Piattelli fu fondata nel 1572 e divenne ben presto la più potente associazione di cacciatori fiorentini controllando i territori adibiti alla caccia e dominando le varie competizioni; ad essa aderirono alcuni dei più celebri rappresentanti delle famiglie nobili dell'epoca: dai Medici, ai Cambi, dai Capponi ai Pandolfini, dai Compagni ai Ricasoli. Il nome della compagnia deriva "..dal mettere ciascuno a comune la sua vivanda, o il suo piatto, e si dicea far piattello" (Moreni 1824); la Compagnia dei Piattelli ebbe come acerrimi rivali i rappresentanti della Compagnia dei Piacevoli, costituita nel 1593. Proprio al rapporto conflittuale tra le due fazioni è dedicato un manoscritto cinquecentesco di Giulio Dati, capo della Compagnia dei Piattelli, conservato alla Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana. Il manoscritto in esame copre un arco cronologico appena successivo al racconto del Dati ed è indubbiamente un importante riferimento per ricostruire l'attività, la composizione e l'organizzazione della Compagnia. Viene qui allegata la prima edizione, in bella brossura, della trascrizione a stampa di tale manoscritto corredata dell'introduzione del Canonico Moreni, ancora oggi importante fonte documentaria per ricostruire notizie storiche sulla compagnia (Disfida di Caccia tra i Piacevoli e Piattelli descritta da Giulio Dati né mai fin qui comparsa in luce, Firenze Bagheri 1824). Si allega il catalogo di "Libri e Manoscritti Antichi e Moderni", in vendita nel 1840 presso il noto libraio - editore fiorentino Giuseppe Molini, in cui era descritto il manoscritto (la più alta aggiudicazione dopo un codice su pergamena del De Civitate Dei del XIV secolo, stimato circa il doppio). Alcuni fogli volanti su carta azzurra sono inseriti tra le pagine del manoscritto: si tratta di appunti e di una parziale trascrizione compilata da un antico possessore inglese dell'Ottocento.

        Cazza del Toro (?Venezia?): Giacomo Franco forma in Frezzaria all'insegna del sole, (?1610?)

      (?VENEZIA?) : GIACOMO FRANCO FORMA IN FREZZARIA ALL'INSEGNA DEL SOLE, (?1610?). ((16 x 23) cm. Incisione in rame. Proviene da "Habiti d'huomeni et donne venetiane con la processione della ser.ma signoria et altri particolari cioe trionfi feste et cerimonie publiche della nobilissima citta di Venetia ". Carta vergata forte. La festa del giovedì grasso ha origini storiche. Dall"Origine delle Feste Veneziane di Giustina Renier Michiel" 1829 vol. secondo p.44: "Fin da quando i Longobardi presero ferma stanza nel Friuli, i Patriarchi di Aquileia molestarono di continuo quelli di Grado soggetti al dominio Veneto...Ulrico eletto Patriarca di Aquileia nel 1162 divorato dal medesimo tarlo di rivalità e di odio, ... Quindi colse il momento che i Veneziani facevano la guerra ai Padovani e Ferraresi...per occupare a tradimento l'infelice città. Ma appena il Doge Vital II Michiel udì l'ingiusta aggressione, che armò la flotta, fece vela inverso Grado, circondò la città, ...sconfisse il nemico, riacquistòla piazza, e vi sorprese il Patriarca con dodici de' suoi canonici, che fece prigionieri, e condusse in trionfo a Venezia. ...Alfine si permise ad Ulrico di tornarsene co' i suoi a casa, purchè subito giuntovi, come pure quind'innanzi ogni anno pel Giovedì Grasso, giorno anniversario della vittoria, avesse a spedire a Venezia un pingue toro e dodici porci per servire di spettacolo e di solazzo alla plebe. ...Col progredire degli anni, si conobbe quanto ...tali costumanze poco si addicessero alla dignità di una nazione incivilita. Esse poi erano divenute insignificanti per essere in appresso li prelati della vecchia Aquileja, come pure l'intero Friuli, passato sotto il dominio della Repubblica. L'illustre Doge Andrea Gritti nella prima metà del XVI secolo ebbe il meritomdi riformare questa festa, la ridusse " mantenendo il simbolismo originario, ma aggiungendo giochi e gare per conservare il carattere popolare della Festa. Franco Giacomo (ca. 1550 - 1620): Pittore, incisore, calcografo e editore veneziano. Nacque a Venezia o ad Urbino intorno al 1550 e morì a Venezia nel 1620.

        Il martirio di San Lorenzo

      1610. Acquaforte, circa 1610, priva di firma, data e dati editoriali. Da un dipinto di Adam Elsheimer conservato alla National Gallery di Londra. Bellisisma prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. L'opera riproduce in controparte il dipinto di Elsheimer. Non descritta dai repertori, che riproducono la più famosa derivazione di Pieter Claesz Soutman, nello stesso verso del dipinto. Confrontando le due opere sembra chiaro come quella di Soutman sia una semplice derivazione su carta del dipinto, mentre questo lavoro è contraddistinto da una notevole vena artistica e da un trate decisamente più immediato e spontaneo. Il fatto che l'incisione di Soutman sia in controparte rispetto al nostro folgio lascia altresì pensare che si sia proprio ispirato a questo. Non abbiamo trovato nessun esempalre di questa incisione nei repertori. Etching, circa 1610, without signature and date. A very good impression of this rare work, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, in very good conditions. After Adam Elsheimer (1578 - 1610). The paint ùing is in the National Gallery of London and is dated c. 1600 - 1 (oil on copper). St Laurence being prepared for martyrdom. The saint standing at right, his clothes being taken off by a boy and a soldier, a turbaned man standing in front of the saint, another pointing at a classical statue at leftt, an angel above the saint, a flaming gridiron in left background. This etching is a mirror image of the painting and show a great quality of the details. The painting was also translate by Pieter Claesz Soutman, in the same direction. Comparing the two works seems clear as that of Soutman is a simple derivation of the painting, while this work is characterized by a considerable artistic touch. Hollstein (Dutch/Flemish) 10; Wurzbach 5. 214 260

        Sine Cerere et Baccho Friget Venus

      1610. "Bulino, 1610 circa, firmato in lastra in basso a destra "Raphael Sadler f. et excud". Da un dipinto perduto di Gillis Coignet. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, lievemente brunita, qualche sporadica fioritura, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. L'incisione di Sadeler deriva da un dipinto perduto del pittore fiammingo Gillis Coignet (1538 - 1599). Il soggetto, caro ai manieristi nordici è ispirato da un verso del commediografo latino Terenzio che al verso 732 della commedia Eunuchus scrive "Sine Cerere et Libero [antico nome di Bacco] friget Venus"". Con il nome Bacco, il verso ricorre poi in Erasmo, Adagia, 1297. Il motto latino, recita "Senza Cerere e Bacco, Venere si raffredda", in altri termini anche l'Amore langue se ha sete e fame. Tradotto in termini figurativi, Venere al centro della scena, affiancata da Cupido, ha le braccia aperte come a voler trattenere sinistra Bacco, con un grappolo nella mano e una corona di foglie di vite sul capo, a destra, Cerere con dei frutti in mano e una decorazione con spighe di grano sul capo, che sembrano volersi allontanare da lei." "Engraving, 1610 ca. Signed in lower corners of impression: ""Gillis Coingnet inuentor."" and ""Raphael Sadler f. et excud."". Lettered in Latin in lower part of impression, written on a stone block: ""Sine Cerere et Baccho / friget Venus."". After a lost painting by Gillis Coignet. A good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed close to marginal line, small foxing, otherwise very good condition. This engraving is after a lost painting by the Flemish artist Gillis Coignet (1538 - 1599). The subject, very popular among Flemish mannerist artists, is inspired by Roman dramatist Terence, who in Eunuchus 732, writes ""Sine Cerere et Libero [ancient name of Bacchus] friget Venus"": Without Ceres and Bacchus, Venus Would Freeze. Venus seated at the foot of a tree at centre, her foot resting on a stone block, Bacchus at left with wine leaves in his hair, Ceres at right and seen from behind with vegetables in her arms, Cupid holding an arrow next to Venus." F.W.H. Hollstein, Dutch and Flemish Engravings, Van Gendt B.V., Blaricum, v. XXI, Amsterdam 1980, n.175 p. 248. 248 200

      1610. 3 vol. in un tomo in - 8, pp. (16), 405, (23, 4 bb.); 346, (16, 2 bb.); (2), 185, (5); leg. coeva p. perg. rigida con unghia, tit. ms. al dorso. Illustrato da 21 straordinarie silografie ad alto contenuto ermetico: una nella prima parte (la celebre ''Turba philosophorum) e 20 nella seconda parte, ad illustrare il ''Rosarium Philosophorum''. Prima edizione completa della terza parte, importantissima poiché contiene vari scritti inediti di Raimondo Lullo, di questa ricchissima raccolta di autori ''classici'' (Aristotele, Avicenna, Rosinus, Merlino, Arnaldo di Villanova, Alberto Magno, ecc.) ed opere anonime di alchimia, magia e segreti naturali. È una delle più rare antologie d'argomento alchemico ed ermetico. Le illustrazioni raffigurano elaborate allegorie del Re e della Regina, che si uniscono carnalmente, dell'Ermafrodito da loro generato, del sole e della luna, della putrefazione e sublimazione dell'Anima, fino a giungere alla dimostrazione della Perfezione. Erano già uscite nel ''De Alchimia opuscula complura veterum philosophorum..'' del 1550; in questa edizione vengono riutilizzati i legni dell'ediz. 1593. Bell'esempl., seppur con usuali uniformi bruniture della carta e margine a destra del primo titolo rifilato; in circa la metà delle silografie i sessi e le scene carnali sono parzialmente abrasi, difetto trascurabile data la qualità dell'esemplare e l'estrema rarità dell'opera.

        Neuw Grotteßken Buch. 3 Teile in 1 Bd.

      - Small landscape volume (230 x 280 mm) containing 60 etched grotesques, 3 etched decorative title-pages and 2 sheets of letterpress, hinged to the album sheets. Lacking one leaf of letterpress. Bound in marbled brown leather with gilt Greek key fillet on the front and back, gilt cartouches and gilt lettering on plain brown morocco title label on the spine, and stamp decoration on the pastedowns. With a slipcase. Nürnberg, C. Jamnitzer, 1610. Excellent and complete set of impressions for this famous and very rare pattern book. Christoph Jamnitzer was one of the most virtuosic Baroque goldsmiths and engravers in Nüremberg. This book of grotesque designs showcases his originality and burgeoning creativity. As each plate was printed on a divided half-sheet, the book could not be quired and plates therefore occur in a variety of sequences, after the dated general titlepage which is naturally put at the beginning. The titlepages only describe the image they depict (Antiquischer Tempel, Radesco Baum and SchnackenMarckt) but give no information on the sections that follow. The dedication is to Carl Ludwig von Fernberg zu Egenberg and is followed by two pages of German verse addressed to all lovers of art and apprentices, the audience Jamnitzer envisages for his work. Engraving was from the first closely associated with metalwork; the combination of goldsmith-engraver became particularly prevalent in Germany, where during the fifteenth century an engraver would invariably begin by training in the more reputable profession of a goldsmith. Christoph's grandfather Wenzel (1508-1585), called 'the German Cellini', was among the most gifted and credited with originating the so-called 'style rustique', which combined ornamental Renaissance grotesque with natural forms such as frogs, insects and plants. His son and grandson continued in this tradition; Christoph became a master at the age of twenty-nine. This book, in late Mannerist or early baroque style, combines in fantastical fashion all manner of grotesque animals with scrolls, spirals and tendrils: one group incorporates children or putti in landscape settings, another uses architectural forms such as cornucopia, urns, caryatids, yet others seem to be intended for candelabra or chandeliers, while still others involve winged amoretti with extraordinary headdresses, heraldic standards, or clusters of fruit and flowers. This set has been annotated in German, in a twentieth century hand by a previous owner with references to examples using or deriving from the designs. Pattern books like this were a rich source of design serving the needs of goldsmiths, jewelers, furniture and furnishing makers, artists and weaponry manufacturers, distributed widely throughout Europe. Being intended for practical use, they rarely survive and examples that do are often in poor condition. This book is rarely found intact: of the 22 located in libraries and museums, more than half are incomplete; only two are known in private hands. This copy is not only complete of all the plates, but in particularly fine condition. - The Vershbow copy lacking a plate sold for $159 750 in 2013.

        Totius Regnorum Hispania et Portugallia

      Artist: de Wit Frederick (-1698) Amsterdam; Issued in: Amsterdam; date: 1690 1610 - Artist: de Wit, Frederick (1610-1698) Amsterdam; Issued in: Amsterdam; date: 1690; - Condition: Restoration at centerfold; Decorative map of complete Spain with 3 cartouches and one heraldic cartouche.Frederik de Wit (1610 Ð 1698 His Atlas began to appear around 1662 and by 1671 included anywhere from 17 to 151 maps each. In the 1690s he began to use a new title page Atlas Maior but continued to use his old title page._ His atlas of the Low Countries first published in 1667,_was named Nieuw Kaertboeck van de XVII Nederlandse Provinci‘n and contained 14 to 25 maps._ De Wit quickly expanded upon his first small folio atlas which contained mostly maps printed from plates that he had acquired, to an atlas with 27 maps engraved by or for him. By 1671 he was publishing a large folio atlas with as many as 100 maps. Smaller atlases of 17 or 27 or 51 maps could still be purchased and by the mid-1670s an atlas of as many as 151 maps and charts could be purchased from his shop.__ In ca.1675 De Wit released a new nautical atlas. The charts in this atlas replaced the earlier charts from 1664 that are known today in only four bound examples and a few loose copies.__ De WitÕs new charts were sold in a chart book and as part of his atlases. De Wit published no fewer than 158 land maps and 43 charts on separate folio sheets._ In 1695 De Wit began to publish a town atlas of the Netherlands after he acquired a large number of city plans at the auction of the famous Blaeu publishing firmÕs printing plates. Dating De Wit's atlases is considered difficult because usually no dates were recorded on the maps and their dates of publication extended over many years.

        Grandezas y antiguedades de la isla y ciudad de Cadiz

      1610 - Amongst the most relevant works referring to Cadiz´ antiquities and archeology. 1610. Cadiz. Clemente Hidalgo. In 4to (193 mm x 139 mm). 4 ff. + 317 (318) + 11 ff. Red morocco gilt by Balmes (1956), gilt supralibros on sides, raised bands to spine with gilt lettering; unevenly sunfaded, covers slightly bowed, else good. Title with residual soil lines in upper and faint stain in mid page, repair to B2 with loss to two lines recto and verso, X1 with closed marginal tear, thoroughly washed and pressed. 4,500 $ First and only edition; an important archaeological work, traditionally accepted as amongst the best and most erudite of its kind published in the 17th century on Spain “uno de los mas eruditos y profundos que en materia arqueologica se publicaron en el siglo XVII” (Palau). The work is handsomely illustrated with woodcuts in text –one of which full page- showing the archeological findings of Cadiz. The contents are varied and at moments a little creative, however, it is one of the most learned studies on the antiquities and early history of Cadiz, which has a double fold interest: one, for it refers to Cadiz, the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain, second because the City has been considered by some the oldest in Western Europe, although that is not true, it is one of the very oldest, thus of interest for the history of the whole of Europe. The rich history of the city goes back to its foundation by the Phoenicians, going through Roman occupation, Visigothic, Muslim, to its re-conquest during the 13th century; during the late 15th century, Cadiz would again be a site of turmoil, Columbus sailed from Cadiz for his second and fourth –and final- voyages to America, and later it would become the most significant port to deal with the Americas and the Treasure Fleet. Naturally such diversions merited the interest of other nations, which made Cadiz an attractive port for raids and piracy (especially British, with that of Drake at the late 16th century being the most famous, and from pirates of Barbary). The book contains references to America, and to the attacks and raids aforementioned. Maggs “The first book printed at Cadiz. It contains frequent references to America, Peru, Mexico, etc.”, however, this is not the first book printed in Cadiz. The work is divided in four books: 1- The Greatness of Cadiz in particular; 2- Its Coat of Arms, is a Hercules with his insignia (which relates to the mythology of its being founded by Hercules); 3- The ceremonies of the Temple of Gaditan Hercules; 4- The particular Gods adored in Cadiz, the costumes of the inhabitants, and the burial traditions.

A very good clean tight copy of the political works of Lipsius. Justus Lipsius (1547 - 1606) was a renowned Flemish scholar, a philologist and humanist. He taught at the universities in Jena, Leiden and Leuven and was the founding father of Neostoicism, a key component of European thought in the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. His political ideas about the ideal citizen - a man that acts according to reason, is answerable to himself, is in control of his emotions, and is ready to fight - found wide acceptance in the turbulent times of the Reformation. This Lipsian view, translated to politics, entails rationalisation of the state and its apparatus of government, autocratic rule by the prince, discipline dispensed to subjects, and strong military defence. In the Politicorum which was written at Leiden where he was Professor of History he wrote that a government should recognise only one religion, and extirpate dissent by fire and sword.

        Compendio de las tres gracias de la santa cruzada, subsidio, y escusado, que su Santidad concede a . Don Felipe III. para gastos de la guerra contra infideles, y la pratica dellas, [etc]

      1610 - Folio 2 parts [20], 338; 146, [20]pp. Modern paper boards. Madrid: Imprenta real, A handsome, crisp copy of the first edition of this immensely detailed account of how the Spanish imperial administration acted in the spiritual sphere . The Bul[l]a de la santa Cruzada granted by the Pope was a bull granting indulgences to those who fight against the infidel or contribute to the costs of the struggle ( the 'tesoro de la Iglesia militante'). It was first granted to the Spanish monarch in 1509, and was thereafter renewed and its scope enlarged by successive popes. The work gives details of the origins, development and organisation of this, how it was to be preached, how the indulgences were to be offered, the spiritual and financial administration of all connected with the Bulla, together with details of where and how the various editions of the bull were to be produced throughout the Spanish dominions, and to which citieds and towns various 'cedulas' etc. were to be sent, and how worded. There are in part 1 long lists of administrative centres in all of Spanish America, the Filippines etc. The section dealing with the printing of the Bullas is particularly interesting: in Spain they were to be printed in Toledo in the Dominicans monastery of S.Peter the Martyr, and at Valladolid in the monastery of Our Lady de Prado, where Rodrigo Calderon was to be in charge; for the Indies at Seville at the Hieronymite monastery of S.Lorenço, although the actual printing was to be carried out at the Monasterio de Buenavista; for Sicily the press was that at the Jesuit College in Palermo, and the costs were to be born by the Society of Jesus. Details of responsibilities for obtaining type and paper are given- for the printing at Valladolid, Genoa paper is specified 'or some other of equal quality and whiteness'. An account if given (in a royal instruction dated 15 June 1584) of the regulations governing S.Peter's, which clearly apply also to Valladolid: printing was strictly under the control of the monasteries, the prior,and ultimately the Dominican authorities, and precise details are given for the nature of the rooms for printing ang storage, the nature of the locks and keys and the control and surveillance of them, the actual printers and those who assist them (it is clear that the printers come from outside the cloister, and they are forbidden to carry swords or arms (314.22)); when type becomes worn and needs to be replaced, this has tio be done inside the monastery and at a controlled cost, and the matrices and punches are to be kept in the archives of the monastery; the bulls are to be printed well on good paper and ink, and a careful record is to be kept of their production and distribution. Similar (but shorter) regulations are also given for the Emprenta de Sicilia, where, for example (no. 4, cf.no. 12 of the Toledo instrucitons) details are given for very careful control and registration of delivery and release of paper to the printers. The title-page has an engraving which incorporates cartographic, heraldic, scripturaland historical motifs, at the mid centre being the cross and the message given to the emperor Constantine 'In hoc signo vinces'. Perez de Lara was, as he tells us in the preface, a Spanish lawyer. He worked in the royal courts at Lima,and published in 1608 in Madrid De anniversariis et capellanis, a work on canon law (reprinted 4 times) and an interesting work on the legal status of the very young and the old , Valladolid, 1629 (once reprinted) This work was reprinted by itself in Lyons (P.Chevalier, 1672;BNF & ONB) and three times - in 1733 (Devillle & Chalmette) and 1757 (de Tournes), and 1768 in Madrid (A.Perez de Soto) - as part of Opera omnia). Palau 221236;Medina (BHA) 561; Alden 610/83. Other than the 5 copies listed by Alden, we have located copies at Barcelona (2) & Madrid BN (1). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Animalium quadrupedum omnis generis verae et artificiosissimae delinationes in aes incisae et editae ab Adriano Collardo.

      - [Antwerp, c. 1610]. Oblong 8vo. (177 x 225mm). Allegorical engraved title (Orpheus charming and taming the birds and beasts of the forests) and 19 engraved plates [Bound up with:] Avium vive icones, in aes incisae & editae ab Adriano Collardo. [Antwerp, 1580]. Engraved pictorial title and 31 engraved plates [Bound up with:] Piscium vivae icones factae ab Adriano Collardo. [Antwerp, c. 1610]. Engraved renaissance architectural title (Neptune with 2 horses, fishing-gear, fishes, crustacea and turtles) and 25 engraved plates. 18th century full morocco gilt, gilt device on covers. The complete zoological works by Adriaen Collaert, in first editions.(I:) A superb suite of early engravings of native and exotic quadrupeds, many recently introduced from distant countries to the busy port of Antwerp, then the most important harbour of Norhern Europe. Amongst others the following exotic animals are depicted: elephants, lions, panther, rhinoceros, giraffe, monkeys, chameleon. Some hunting scenes with bears and boars, rabbits, hares and hunting dogs. Further native animals such as horses, cows, elk, deer, goat etc. All these animals are depicted in a beautiful landscapes with mountains, forests, rivers, farmer's houses, farmers cultivating land. Very much in the style and tradition of the Flemish painter Jan Bruegel the Elder.(II:) "A rare and curious collection of copper-plate engravings of birds by an early Dutch engraver ." (Wood 283). The 16 plates (including the pictorial titlepage) of the first work are unnumbered and contain mostly the common native bird species. The second set of plates 'Avium Iconum editio secunda' is numbered 1-16 and is not a second edition of the first work, but a continuation depicting mainly exotic and rare (native and foreign) birds. All plates of both parts bear the Latin name of each bird, which is figured in front of a beautiful and detailed landscape with small villages, rivers, boats, towers, etc. The very fine copper-engravings are not only of high artistical value, but also of great scientific importance.(III:) A superb suite of early engravings depicting not only fishes but also crustacea, shells, seals, whales, a sea-horde, a crocodile and frogs. Although marine fishes figure mostly also fresh-water fishes are shown. Most of the animals are depicted in front of lovely nautical sceneries, with numerous sailing ships, fishing fishermen, mountains in the distance with castles, towns, rock formations. The first 20 plates show numerous shells, sometimes more than 20 to a plate.Little is known about Adriaan Collaert (c.1560-1618) a flemish engraver working in Antwerp, he married the daughter of Philip Galle (a renowned publisher and engraver), and published and engraved a.o. a number of attractive engraved suites dealing with natural history. This genre became quite fashionable and much of his work was issued again by Joannis Visscher in Amsterdam some 30-50 years later, some were copied by other artists. The first editions of Collaert's works are scarce and superior to later issues.One plate with small paper loss at corner not affecting the image and 5 plates with some marginal strengthening on verso with old paper, else a few plates with occasional marginal browning.(I:) Nissen ZBI, 924; Wood 283; Bridson & White D61(II:) Nissen IVB, 199; Wood 283; Bridson & White D66(III:) edition with slightly different title, Nissen, Schöne Fischbücher, 42; Bridson & White D60; this title, Helmus, L.M (Ed).

        Animalium quadrupedum omnis generis verae et artificiosissimae delinationes in aes incisae et editae ab Adriano Collardo.

      [Antwerp, c. 1610]. Oblong 8vo. (177 x 225mm). Allegorical engraved title (Orpheus charming and taming the birds and beasts of the forests) and 19 engraved plates [Bound up with:] Avium vive icones, in aes incisae & editae ab Adriano Collardo. [Antwerp, 1580]. Engraved pictorial title and 31 engraved plates [Bound up with:] Piscium vivae icones factae ab Adriano Collardo. [Antwerp, c. 1610]. Engraved renaissance architectural title (Neptune with 2 horses, fishing-gear, fishes, crustacea and turtles) and 25 engraved plates. 18th century full morocco gilt, gilt device on covers. The complete zoological works by Adriaen Collaert, in first editions./(I:) A superb suite of early engravings of native and exotic quadrupeds, many recently introduced from distant countries to the busy port of Antwerp, then the most important harbour of Norhern Europe. Amongst others the following exotic animals are depicted: elephants, lions, panther, rhinoceros, giraffe, monkeys, chameleon. Some hunting scenes with bears and boars, rabbits, hares and hunting dogs. Further native animals such as horses, cows, elk, deer, goat etc. All these animals are depicted in a beautiful landscapes with mountains, forests, rivers, farmer's houses, farmers cultivating land. Very much in the style and tradition of the Flemish painter Jan Bruegel the Elder. /(II:) "A rare and curious collection of copper-plate engravings of birds by an early Dutch engraver ..." (Wood 283). The 16 plates (including the pictorial titlepage) of the first work are unnumbered and contain mostly the common native bird species. The second set of plates 'Avium Iconum editio secunda' is numbered 1-16 and is not a second edition of the first work, but a continuation depicting mainly exotic and rare (native and foreign) birds. All plates of both parts bear the Latin name of each bird, which is figured in front of a beautiful and detailed landscape with small villages, rivers, boats, towers, etc. The very fine copper-engravings are not only of high artistical value, but also of great scientific importance./(III:) A superb suite of early engravings depicting not only fishes but also crustacea, shells, seals, whales, a sea-horde, a crocodile and frogs. Although marine fishes figure mostly also fresh-water fishes are shown. Most of the animals are depicted in front of lovely nautical sceneries, with numerous sailing ships, fishing fishermen, mountains in the distance with castles, towns, rock formations. The first 20 plates show numerous shells, sometimes more than 20 to a plate.//Little is known about Adriaan Collaert (c.1560-1618) a flemish engraver working in Antwerp, he married the daughter of Philip Galle (a renowned publisher and engraver), and published and engraved a.o. a number of attractive engraved suites dealing with natural history. This genre became quite fashionable and much of his work was issued again by Joannis Visscher in Amsterdam some 30-50 years later, some were copied by other artists. The first editions of Collaert's works are scarce and superior to later issues.//One plate with small paper loss at corner not affecting the image and 5 plates with some marginal strengthening on verso with old paper, else a few plates with occasional marginal browning.//(I:) Nissen ZBI, 924; Wood 283; Bridson & White D61/(II:) Nissen IVB, 199; Wood 283; Bridson & White D66/(III:) edition with slightly different title, Nissen, Schöne Fischbücher, 42; Bridson & White D60; this title, Helmus, L.M (Ed).

        THREE SIGNIFICANT DUTCH VOYAGES TO THE FAR EAST IN EARLY FRENCH TRANSLATIONS, BOUND TOGETHER AS ISSUED].

      Amsterdam: Cornille Nicolas, 1609-1610. - Three volumes bound in one. Described in greater detail below. Folio. Contemporary vellum over boards; rebacked, preserving original spine. Bookplate on front pastedown. Light soiling and repairs to titlepages. Minor soiling else. Very good. Three highly important Dutch voyages, all in their second French editions and bound together as issued in 1610. These three voyages represent the initial Dutch exploration and expansion to the East Indies, a significant element in a global commercial enterprise which was to develop throughout the 17th century. The foundational accounts in the present volume, originally issued together by Amsterdam printer Cornille Nicolas, include: 1) [Lodewijcksz, Willem]: PREMIER LIVRE DE L'HISTOIRE DE LA NAVIGATION AUX INDES ORIENTALES, PAR LES HOLLANDOIS. Amsterdam: Cornille Nicolas, 1609. 53 leaves. Titlepage with engraved map, forty-five in-text engravings (including three maps), seventeen in-text woodcut illustrations, and one plate on separate leaf following printed text. Moderate soiling on titlepage, slight edge wear to first few leaves. Second French edition, following the first French edition of 1598. Lodewijcksz gives an account of the first Dutch expedition to the East Indies under Cornelis Houtman, from 1595 to 1597. The information collected by Houtman on the spice trade convinced the Dutch they could compete with Portugal's monopoly in the East Indies, and his narrative served to initiate the explosion of Dutch trading at the turn of the century. "Like the English, Houtman's men suffered so severely from scurvy that they had to put in at the Cape of Good Hope and at Antongil Bay in Madagascar to recuperate. But they then sailed straight across the Indian Ocean to the Straits of Sunda and dropped anchor at Bantam in Java without the loss of a ship. At this port, the center of the Javanese pepper trade, a long time was spent. Both natives and Portuguese showed considerable hostility, and Houtman and some of his men were imprisoned. However, the Dutch succeeded in making a commercial treaty and departed with a good cargo. They proceeded eastward to Bali, and then returned along the south coast of Java, thereby acquiring a more correct impression of the width of the island than had prevailed and laid the ghost of Java's being the northern part of the Southern Continent.the Dutch skipper had enough to show for his venture to inspire the merchants of Amsterdam with a determination to exploit the trade" - Penrose. 2) Neck, Jacob Cornelissoon van: LE SECOND LIVRE, IOURNAL OU COMPTOIR, CONTENANT LE VRAY DISCOURS ET NARRATION HISTORIQUE. Amsterdam: Cornille Nicolas, 1609. Two parts. 22,[4] leaves. Titlepages with engraved illustrations, twenty-two in-text engravings (including one map), two in- text woodcuts. Leaves D2 and D3 lacking, provided in facsimile. Second French edition, following the first French edition of 1601. Van Neck, who represented the Verre Company, commanded three ships which were part of the first successful Dutch trading voyage to the region. The other two ships were commanded by Wybrand Van Warwijck and Jacob Van Heemskerk. Van Neck's vessel became separated from the other two after rounding the Cape of Good Hope, and the three did not reunite again until his arrival in Java in late December 1598. Unlike his Dutch predecessor, Cornelis Houtman, who three years earlier had seized the port of Bantam, Van Neck dealt diplomatically with the natives. "Rather than rejecting the inflated prices asked by the local ruler, he offered to pay over the odds in order to cement a lasting relationship.Van Neck's was the most profitable of the pre-VOC [Dutch East India Company] voyages. Despite the apparently high price paid for spices, he netted a profit of 300 per cent on his overall costs. In 1601, fourteen fleets comprising sixty-five ships sailed for the East Indies, but by that time competition between rival Dutch operators, as well as with the Portuguese, had inflated prices and none wer

Van Noort, a former innkeeper in Rotterdam sponsored by a group of Dutch merchants, accomplished the fourth circumnavigation of the globe after Magellan, Drake, and Cavendish. He was the first Dutch explorer to do so, making the trip from 1598 to 1601. The voyage was particularly arduous. Half the crew mutinied, his ships were constantly harassed, and most of those that didn't mutiny perished from disease. He returned to Holland "with only one battered ship and eight crew left (although some accounts suggest that forty-five crew survived). His voyage contributed little to the geographical knowledge of the time but had some effect in opening the way to the establishment of the Dutch in the East Indies...Van Noort's achievement, however, captured the imagination of his countrymen, and the published accounts sold well, the first appearing only eighteen days after his return.

        Cartas Morales y Consolatorias del Senor de Narveza. Traduzidas en lengua Castellana por Madama Francisca de Passier. De nuevo corregidas y anadidas de siete Cartas, traduzidas por Cesar Oudin, Secretario Interprete de su Magestad Christianissima

      Paris, Anthoine du Breuil, 1610. - in-8. 4ff. 152ff. 7ff. Demi veau, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure moderne dans le goût de l'époque). Seconde édition espagnole, la première complète, des Lettres de Nerveze. En 1605 était parue à Thonon-les-Bains (Savoie) la première traduction en espagnol des "Epitres Morales" du poète français Antoine de Nerveze (1570-1624), secrétaire du roi Henri IV. La traductrice était une femme connue pour ses talents, Françoise de Passier. Cette femme cultivée disparut prématurément sans avoir pu terminer la traduction et par conséquent cette première édition de Thonon-les-Bains ne contenait pas la totalité du texte original. Aujourd'hui d'une extrême rareté, il s'agit de l'un des premiers livres imprimés dans cette petite ville de Savoie. Peu après la mort de sa traductrice, Nerveze prit l'initiative d'éditer à nouveau son livre en espagnol et il confia la réalisation de la présente édition, ainsi que la traduction du fragment manquant, au traducteur d'espagnol du roi Henri IV César Oudin, qui devint peu après le premier traducteur de Don Quichotte en français. Dans la préface rédigée pour cette seconde édition, adressée à "Don Diego Pimentel, Conde de Gelves, del Consejo Supremo de Guerra de su Magestad Catholica y su Castellano del Castillo de Milan", Oudin expose les circonstances de sa mise en chantier: "despues de la muerte de ladicha Dama no quiso el susodicho de Narveza que quedase la obra imperfecta y por esta causa aviendo el cobrado un ejemplar de la impresion de Tonon comunicomelo para que cotejando la traduccion Espanola con el original Francés yo mirase si acaso o por descuido los impressores huvieran dexado passar algunas faltas y asi lo repassé con la mayor diligencia y cuydado que pude, segun mis ordinarias ocupaciones me dieron lugar a ello, tambien acabé de traduzir las Cinco Cartas que quedavan del libro, juntamente con otras dos que anadio el Autor". Oudin évoque également dans ce texte liminaire "Madama de Passier, Dama en verdad digna de mucha gloria y alabanza por su raro ingenio y levantado espiritu y por aver sido dotada de tantas y tan excelentes virtudes, como claramente se conoce en esta traduccion que ella hizo de Frances en Espanol de las Cartas Morales y Consolatorias del Senor Narveza".

Afm.: (prent) ca. 43 x 219 cm, (lijst) 80 x 255 cm.De rede van Antwerpen heeft een fascinerende aantrekkingskracht uitgeoefend op kunstenaars: geen enkele havenstad in de 16e en 17e eeuw heeft zo vaak haar rede of delen van die rede weergegeven gezien op schilderijen en prenten. Enkele grafische kunstenaars hebben het gewaagd in monumentale gezichten een overzichtsbeeld te geven van het ganse toenmalige havencomplex. De drie voornaamste pogingen werden stuk voor stuk meesterwerken in het genre: de anonieme houtsnede van 1515, de gravure van Frans Huys van 1556, en het redegezicht van 1610 door Jan Bapitist Vrients.Opdrachtgevers voor het vervaardigen van dit stadsgezicht waren de aartshertogen Albrecht en Isabella die over de Habsburgse Nederlanden regeerden van 1598 tot 1621.In 1609 kwam men in Antwerpen tot een akkoord over een wapenstilstand, waarop het Twaalfjarig Bestand volgde en de erkenning van de Verenigde Provinciën als soevereine macht. Met de beëindiging van de vijandelijkheden en het daaruit voortvloeiende herstel van de landbouw, nam de welvaart bij de terugkerende bevolking toe. De protestanten die eerder de zuidelijke Nederlanden hadden verlaten, werden onder nieuwe wetgeving nu gedoogd. Deze gebeurtenissen bij elkaar waren aanleiding voor een stemming van overwinning en lof, uitgebeeld in dit panorama.De gravure van Vrients toont boven het stadsbeeld allegorische voorstellingen in de toen doorbrekende barok-stijl. Van links naar rechts: het wapenschild van Brabant; een bazuin blazende Faun, de Overvloed, de Macht geflankeerd door de Zege en Gerechtigheid; de Stad Antwerpen met Mercurius en vreemdelingen die schatten brengen; het wapenschild van het markgraafschap Antwerpen. Links bovenaan een cartouche met een 18-regelig Latijns lofdicht op Antwerpen onder de titel "De magnificentia urbis Antverpianae"'; het cartouche rechts kent wederom een lofdicht in het Nederlands en Frans:"De Lotharinger Vorst, de eerste Hendrik bou[w]de Nu al voor soo veel eeuwen mijn wallen aan de Schelde Doch wat is "t dat men stoft op daden van den ouden Als een verdiende lof u dapperheyd niet melt Sie vremdeling, mijn schat mijn huijsen, toorens, kereken, Mijn wallen en het Slot daer uijt ik word bewaakt Gae heen en segh dan vrij die duijsen wonder werken Heeft burger van mijn stadt in voorsped self gemaakt."'Jan Bapitist Vrients (1552-1612) specialiseerde zich in de uitgave van kaarten. Na de dood van Abraham Ortelius (in 1598) en Gerard de Jode (in 1591) was hij de enige belangrijke Antwerpse uitgever die de cartografische traditie uit Antwerpen"s Gouden Eeuw voortzette, zij het ten dele met materiaal van zijn voorgangers: hij kon onder meer van Ortelius" zuster de koperplaten van de fameuze kaartenmaker kopen en daarmee het Theatrum Orbis Terrarum van Ortelius herhaalde malen heruitgeven.Het redegezicht van 1610 is dan ook uitzonderlijk in het oeuvre van Vrients. Niet bekend is of hij persoonlijk de prent gegraveerd heeft, of dat hij enkel als uitgever van het werk heeft gefungeerd. Sommige bronnen suggereren dat de plaat is gemaakt door Hans Rem die in 1606 ook een groot aangezicht van Amsterdam maakte.Vrients overleed in 1612. Zijn materiaal werd publiekelijk geveild in april van dat jaar. De koperplaten van Ortelius werden gekocht door Balthasar en Jan Moretus, maar andere liefhebbers waren eveens komen opdagen. De koperplaten van het redegezicht moeten de weg naar het Noorden hebben gevonden. Op bepaalde afdrukken komt de naam van plaatsnijder Johannes Loots (1630) uit Amsterdam voor, ook zijn er exemplaren bekend met de naam van Claes Jansz Visscher (1652).Dit exemplaar zonder naam van een uitgever moet na 1652 zijn verschenen.Literatuur: zie Holstein XLIX, 61; Delen "Iconographie van Antwerpen"' 613Prijs: € 16.500,-.
