        Descrizione del Sacro Monte della Vernia, con disposizinoe di XXV figure intagliate in rame

      Florence, 1612. Folio. 24ff., + 22ff. lettered plates, two of which fold out and are comprised of multiple sheets. First edition. Illustrated with an elaborate engraved frontispiece portrait of St. Francis surrounded by allegorical symbols and twenty-two plates. Details in each of the plates are labeled with letters, which correspond to explanatory keys on the facing pages. These pages are surrounded by intricate typographic borders and ornamentation. On the morning of the 14th of September, 1224, St. Francis of Assisi received the gift of the Stigmata on the Monte della Vernia in the Tuscan Apennines. This remarkable example of Italian Baroque book illustration is an inspired endeavor to illustrate the experiences of St. Francis, as well as the chapels and churches in the area that had been erected in the 13th and 14th centuries. The copper engravings were cut from drawings by the Veronese painter Jacopo Ligozzi, seven of these (A, C, N, P, U, X and Y) were done by Raphael Sciaminossi and are concerned chiefly with St. Francis?'s forty days on the mountain. Most of the fifteen unsigned plates show architectural or landscape details. The frontispiece portrait of St. Francis was engraved by Domenico Falcini. Four plates feature six engraved overlay slips, all but one of which are to show differences in the landscape between the early 13th century and 1608: the exception is plate F, which depicts a screen hiding two frescos. Because of the tendency for these little slips to become dislodged, copies with all six overlays present are extremely rare, the last complete copy having been offered for sale in 1983 (the Besterman copy). Several older marginal repairs, front pastedown repaired, else a nice, untrimmed copy in contemporary full limp vellum, which shows a few wormholes. With the small embossed stamp of Giannalisa Feltrinelli on the front endpaper. Housed in a vellum-backed cloth folding case.

First edition. Title within woodcut border, 4 engraved plates (two folding). [16], 166, [2, blank], [16, index] pp. ?4 a4 A-Z4, including blanks a4 and X4. 1 vols. 4to. Angelo Rocca (1545-1620) was the founder of the Angelica Library, the first public library of Rome. He was also head of the Vatican printing office, overseeing numerous editions of the Bible and the Church Fathers. In 1595 he was appointed papal sacristan, a position from which he gained a broad knowledge of bells and chimes. In DE CAMPANIS COMMENTARIUS Rocca addresses the origins of bells, the rite of consecration for bells, their ecclesiastical usage (including the liturgy), the office of bell ringer, secular and musical uses of bells, and clock chiming. The four fine engraved plates are: "Horologium Sancti Marci Venetiarum" (the astronomical clock in St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice); "Campana A XXIIII Hominibus Pulsata" (a bell so large it required 24 men to ring it), "Campanae XXXIII Organi Sonm Reddentes" (a man at the keyboard of an organum of 33 bells); and "Horologium Leodii" (a large folding plate illustrating the the elaborate chiming clock of St. Lambert's Cathedral in Liège, in this copy defective).

Light dampstains to title and an old ownership signature, notes to front endpapers. quite clean internally with scattered minor foxing, corner of one page torn.

Graesse VI 331 (noting the Morel edition and this one on whiter, stronger paper than the others), Bibliotheca Accipitrari. One of the earliest treatises on Falconry, Pepagomenos (1200-1300) was court physician to Byzantine Emperor Michael VIII Palaiologos - the treatise deals with the catching, training and health of the hawks, describing in detail the methods of capturing the hawks using decoy pigeons and various sorts of blinds. This work also collects for the first time, a second, anonymous Greek work on falconry dealing largely with the health of the birds (it occupies pages 177-239), the Latin translation of the same, and a third Greek treatise, (occupying pages 239-the end) this one not translated, dealing with descriptions of hawks in the first section and their diseases in the second. The final section has the only surviving edition of a (likely apocryphal) letter to Ptolemy of Egypt (it is cited by Albertus Magnus in his book on falconry) by Aquila Symmachus here printed in Catalan (the original Latin MS is lost) and an excerpt from a book by Symmachus on falconry (these occupy pages 183-200 and 201-211 respectively). The final sections are a long poem on falconry entitled Hieracosophion, sive de re accipitraria libri III, originally published in 1582 and a work on the care of dogs for hunting, De Cura Canum Venaticorum.

Manque, comme dans beaucoup d'exemplaires, la suite intitulée "Le Reste des vers faicts pour ces courses et comme ils furent donnez au camp", et qui forme un supplément de 32 pages.

Cioranescu, XVII, 40689. Ruggieri, 385. Plusieurs collations de dépôts publics donnent [4] ff. liminaires et non [2] comme ici, sans autre précision. En tout cas, les signatures de notre exemplaire sont cohérentes, et il ne semble rien manquer avant la signature A(1). Très bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Si tratta della rara edizione torinese (la prima veneta è del 1583) di questo celebre trattato che ebbe una rinomanza enorme tanto da vendere circa trenta edizioni nel corso di un secolo. L’opera in lingua italiana del medico bolognese del XVI secolo Baldassare Pisanelli (notizie 1559 -1583), allievo del più famoso Aldovrandi, è una disamina accurata delle virtù e difetti dei più comuni cibi, frutti e liquori. Insegnamenti per la preparazione e la cottura. Consigli per la scelta degli alimenti. Di ogni cibo e' riportata la storia e la considerazione di esso presso gli antichi. Il testo inizia con la Tavola delle Cose che nella presente opera si contengono: si elencano in voci alfabetiche tutti i cibi commestibili atti a preparare le ricette culinarie che seguono. Stampata in bel corsivo tondo, alcuni capilettera e finalini xilografici, una lieve ed uniforme brunitura dovuta al tipo di carta, un accenno di gora al margine inferiore delle prime ed ultime pagine. Esemplare in più che buono stato di conservazione. Ricco di nozioni a dir poco curiose. Di grande rarità e notevole importanza.

First published as a defence of the Society at Middleburgh in 1601 and reissued in the same year in London. Hotchkiss describes this book "as the earliest important example of corporation publicity...a piece of commercial important milestone in the development of marketing...It represents the characteristically medieval theory of the trade monopoly, bolstered by monarchical authority and jealously guarded against competition". Written to show the superiority of the Merchant Adventurers over unorganised traders, Wheeler argued that competition among merchants was minimized, that the large fleets employed by such a company secured commerce, increased exports, cheapened imports, raised the customs revenue, and benefited the nation in time of war. The book contains a detailed account of alliances with the Low Countries, trade with Antwerp and survey of trade between England and the Hanse towns, with a refutation of the charge against the Merchant Adventurers of being monopolists.

Schwerdt II, p.136. Souhart, pp.670 - 671.Thiébaud, p.499 - 500. Importante e assai rara raccolta di opere sulla falconeria e la cinologia, pubblicata dal bibliotecario del re di Francia Luigi XIII: Nicolas Rigault, la cui dedicatoria appare nelle prime pagine del libroa: Rigault era pure esecutore testamentario del celebre falconiere Jacques Auguste de Thou. Il lavoro venne stampato da Claude Morel, insieme ad altri due librai (H.Drovart e S.Cramoisy). Sul mercato apparvero così varie ediz. con i nomi ora dell'uno, ora dell'altro libraio. Il nostro esemplare reca il nome del libraio Drovart. Secondo Brunet e Souhart, l'ediz. stampata da Cramoisy ha la carta più bianca e resistente Si è riscontrato una certa discrepanza nelle pagine e nell'ordine delle opere nelle tre edizioni. Kreysig segnala una edizione in 8° del 1758, pubblicata a Basilea e una parigina in 4° del 1619, che Thiébaud giudica inesistenti. Le opere riunite sono undici, le prime due in greco, entrambe dedicate agli ucceli da rapina e scritte da Demetrio Costantinopolitano detto Pepagomeno, appaiono stampate per la prima volta. Seguono altre opere sul medesimo soggeto (importante un poema latino di J.A. de Thou), una in greco sulla cura dei cani da caccia, attribuita a Femone o al già citato Pepagomeno, una epistola in catalano (nell'opera in questione c'è anche la traduzione latina) su come nutrire e curare gli uccelli da rapina, impiegati per la caccia (la lettera è di Simmaco, considerata apocrifa, è il più antico trattato di falconeria in lingua volgare) ecc. Per una dettagliata analisi di tutte le 11 opere si rimanda in particolare ai repertori di Ceresoli e Thiébaud.

        Darbieshire described

      to be sold in popes head Alley by John Sudbury and G. Humble, [1612-1616]., [London], - Double-page engraved map, upper left and right margins skilfully repaired, margins reinforced with japanned paper. The map bears the imprint of Roger Rea the Elder and Younger. The Reas had purchased the rights to Speed's work form William Garrett in 1589, who had previously purchased them from the widow of William Humble in the same year. Skelton suggests that the father and son intended a new edition of the atlas for the Restoration, of 1660. However, the atlas would appear not to have been published until 1665. This is borne out by an advertisement in the Term Catalogue by the subsequent owners of the plates, Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell, in 1675:"Mr John Speed's. Geography of the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland. together with his Prospect. all in one entire Volume, hath been, for seven Years past, out of Print, the greatest part of an Impression, then newly Printed, being destroyed by the late dreadful Fire, 1666". This is borne out by the rarity of the Rea edition of the atlas. There is evidence that they planned an edition of 1666, as there are impressions of Sussex, Buckingham and Derby, with Rea's imprint, which bear that date. Rea would later sell the plates to Bassett and Chiswell, who would publish a new edition in 1676.
