        Liber psalmorum Davidis regis, et prophetae. Ex Arabico idiomate in Latinum translatus. A Victorio Scialac & Gabriele Sionita. Recens in lucem editus munificentia Francisci Savary de Breves.

      Rom, S. Paolini f. Typographia Savariana, 1614.. (8), 474, (6) SS. Mit 2 Holzschnittwappen auf dem Titel und am Ende. Halblederband um 1880. 4to.. Erste Ausgabe dieser Bearbeitung mit arabisch-lateinischem Paralleltext. In etwa 3000 Exemplaren gedruckt, deren größerer Teil 1619 zu einer Titelausgabe wiederverwendet wurde. Berühmt für die Klarheit und Eleganz der von Savary de Breves geschaffenen Typen, deren weitreichende Vokalisierung den handlichen Quartanten zu einem der Arbeitstexte der aufblühenden arabischen Studien in Europa werden ließen. Nach älterer Meinung geht der Typenguß auf den Aufenthalt Savarys als Gesandten der französischen Krone in Konstantinopel zurück. In der neueren Forschung wird als Vorbild ein kalligraphisches Manuskript aus Qannubin angesehen, das sich in der Bibliotheca Vaticana erhalten hat: Schnitt und Guß seien in Rom in Zusammenarbeit mit dem erfahrenen Drucker der ehemaligen Typographia Medicea, Stefano Paolini, erfolgt. Der Wortlaut der Psalmenversion geht auf ein von Savary de Breves in Jerusalem erworbenes Manuskript zurück (vgl. Balagna, L'imprimerie arabe en occident, 55 f.). Text und Übersetzung der Maroniten Sionita und Scialac weisen Abweichungen zur Vulgata auf, die ein umfangreiches Imprimatur nötig machten. - Bellarmins arabischer Katechismus und der arabisch-lateinische Psalter blieben die einzigen Drucke der Typographia Savariana in Rom; die Typen haben sich erhalten und befinden sich heute im Besitz der Imprimerie Nationale in Paris. - Einband beschabt und bestoßen. Titel mit hs. Besitzvermerk, erste Lagen mit kleinem Wasserrand, leicht gebräunt, vereinzelt braunfleckig. - STC 108. Darlow/Moule 1641. Lüthi 198. Schnurrer 324 und S. 500-506. Fück 56. Ebert 18088.

Sarton, Introduction to the History of Science, vol.III, pt.II pp.1614-1623. Kiernan, The Unveiling of Arabia pp.46-51FIRST EDITION, SUBSCRIBERS COPY ? THE DUKE OF LEEDS COPY. The first publication of the text, known as the Tu?fat al-nu???r or Rihla meaning Journey, edited by Samuel Lee [1783-1852] from abridged manuscripts copies in Cambridge.Known in the west as the Marco Polo of Islam, ibn Battuta belonged to the Berber tribe. He was brought up in Tangiers. His travels were so extensive lasting 30 years and included North Africa, Arabia, Syria and Palestine, Persia, East Africa, the Anatolian peninsular, Southern Russia, Bukhara, Samarkhand, Herat, the Hindu Kush, Kabul, Sind, travels in India, the Maldives, Sumatra, Canton and Peking, then later Andalusia, Morocco and western Sudan, Timbuktu and Fez. It is estimated he travelled 75,000 miles, considerably more than Marco Polo."His point of view was never that of a geographer or of a historian; nevertheless his account was of considerable geographical and historical value....In many cases he is the earliest authority sufficiently to describe a country...he is the only Arabic traveller who gave a sufficient description of Oman...the description of the court and administration of Delhi is the most elaborate of its kind and time..."After his return, ibn Battuta settled in Fez. The sultan ordered his secretary to edit the account which the traveller dictated and this was completed in 1356.The Rihla is of special interest in that it gives a concrete image of the immensity of the Islamic world of that time. It gives a picture of the trade routes, religious usage in the various countries, some descriptions of fruits and cereals, trees, pearl fisheries in Bahrain, scorpions on Sudan, in Ceylon observes elephants and monkeys, makes anthropological and ethnological observations, witnessed the Black Death in Damascus, and studies prices and costs of commodities including slave girls, business by barter and the business of soap manufacture.The complete Arabic text with French translation was published in Paris in five volumes 1853-59.

Rare in contemporary binding. RARE FIRST EDITION OF RALEIGH'S MASSIVE WORK AND A CORNERSTONE WORK IN HISTORIOGRAPHY. ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS PRINTED IN ENGLAND AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 1600's. This is the only volume published of the massive history Raleigh planned and began while in the Tower of London after the accession of James I. This is the earlier of the two editions having the colophon dated 1614, with the errata uncorrected. It was rigidly suppressed by order of King James I, but nevertheless passed through several editions. The engraved title was not issued with the second edition, which appeared in 1617, a printed title having a portrait of Raleigh taking its place. A reissue of the second edition appeared in 1621, and later editions in 1624, 1628, 1666, and 1684, 1687 and throughout the 18th century. This is the only volume published of the massive history Raleigh planned and began while in the Tower of London after the accession of James I. It was rigidly suppressed by order of King James I, but nevertheless passed through several editions. While most of his prose works up to then had been written fro private circulation[...] the HISTORY was intended for publication to a wide audience. Raleigh began writing it about 1607, the work was entered in the Stationers' register in 1611 and appeared towards the end of 1614. The preface was suppressed by George Abbot, archbishop of Canterbury, on 22 December and copies were seized by the kings' agents for this own use. According to Chamberlain the suppression came about because it was "too sawcie in censuring princes" [...] The suppression order was soon lifted and the History was reprinted in 1617. It remained popular: there were at least eleven editions in the seventeenth century, one in the eighteenth, and one in the nineteenth. Raleigh was one of the principal figures of the English Renaissance. As well as being a poet of wide repute and a successful soldier, he was one of the earliest explorers of the New World (one of its cities still bears his name). This ambitious book, which Raleigh worked on with the help of several assistants, ostensibly deals with Greek, Egyptian, and biblical history up to 168 B.C., but the preface summarizes modern European history and represents one of the earliest English views of the world and its history. It has become a classic of English Renassaince literature. The History is described as "The first part of the general history of the world", implying, as Ralegh said, that other parts were to come. This, he admitted, was his intention and indeed he had "hewn them out". What exists is a substantial work, of about a million words, in five books, running from the creation of the world to 146 B.C., the time of the second Macedonian war. The first two books are principally, though not wholly, concerned with biblical history, the last three mainly with the story of Greece and Rome. In the first two, God's judgments are seen as the central determinants of events; in the latter three the role of man is more evident. History is regarded as moral exemplum, a classical concept appropriate ot the treatment of ancient history but unusual for the subsequent discussion of Henry VIII. The juxtaposition of the discussion of Henry with that of James must have registered as ironic with the original readers, especially later when James's "unstained sword of justice" had Ralegh's blood on it. The HISTORY IS FAR MORE THAN A CHRONOLOGY, ITS OPENING CHAPTERS DESCRIBED THE CREATION OF THE WORLD AND ITS NATURE BEFORE RALEGH MOVED TO THE PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEMS RAISED BY THE CONCEPTS OF PRESCIENCE, PROVIDENCE, FREE WILL AND FORTUNE. He adopted the familiar distinction between first and second causes, God' Will, he later wrote, determined everything [...] yet God works through second causes, "Instruments, Causes and Pipes", which carry his will to the world. The distinction is not clear or unambiguous, but it enabled Ralegh to focus upon human actions. Essentially, he wrote for a purpose, as a man of action: it was, he said, "the end and scope of all History, to teach by example of times past, such wisdom as my guide our desires and actions" (ODNB). perhaps unsurprisingly, given his previous experiences, one of Raleigh's principal themes was 'the general wickedness of kings and the severity of God's judgement upon them [...] The misdeeds of English kings were related in some detail. o Henry VIII Ralegh wrote that "if all the pictures and patterns of a merciless prince were lost in the World, they might again be painted to the life, out of the story of this king" [...] Only one ruler in the entire history of the world receives unstinted and unadulterated praise from Ralegh: Epaminondas of Thebes, with Hannibal as proxime accessit. Although Ralegh believed that history could provide examples and precepts for rulers to follow, its events demonstrated only too clearly that they were unlikely to do so. His book ends with a paean of praise to Death: "Oh eloquent, just and mighty Death! whom none could advise, thou has persuaded; that none has dared, thou hast done; and whom all the world hath flattered, thou only hath cast out of the world and despised: thou hast drawn together all the far stretched greatness, all the pride, cruelty, and ambition of man, and covered it over with these two narrow words, Hic jacet" (loc.cit.) The poem "The Mind of the Front' (i.e. explanation of the allegorical frontispiece) was written by Ben Jonson, who had been tutor to Raleigh's son at the time of the book's production. Raleigh was one of the principal figures of the English Renaissance. As well as being a poet of wide repute and a successful soldier, he was one of the earliest explorers of the New World (one of its cities still bears his name).

Opera Omnia, the definitive collection of his work on Roman and canon law was first published in 1559 and went through numerous editions into the eighteenth century. Roberts says it was an important authority among Roman-Dutch jurists. Our edition is notable for its editorial contributions by Brederode, the notable Dutch jurist and diplomat. All editions are scarce in North America. OCLC locates 2 of the 1614 edition in North American law libraries (Columbia, Harvard). Roberts, A South African Legal Bibliography 97 (citing othe

        Peregrinaçam de Fernão Mendez Pinto que consta de muitas e muy estranhas cousas que vio e ouvio no Reyno da China, no da Tartaria, no de Pegù, no de Martauão, e em outros muitos Reynos, e Senhorios das partes Orientaes

      x+428 pages. Quarto (11 1/2" x 8") bound in original leather binding with raised bands and gilt label to spine. Edited by Antonio Tenreiro. In double column pages issued without map. First published in 1614.Fernão Mendes Pinto was a Portuguese explorer and writer. His exploits are known through the posthumous publication of his memoir Pilgrimage Peregrinação in 1614, an autobiographical work whose truthfulness is nearly impossible to assess. The tale of his adventures was written after the fact, according to Pinto's memories of the events, and for that reason it may be open to doubt as a completely accurate historical source. However, it well documents the impact of the Asian civilizations on the Europeans and constitutes a perfectly realistic analysis of Portuguese action in the Orient, far more realistic than the one made by Luís de Camões in The Lusiads. The most controversial of his claims is that of having been the first European to land in Japan and the introduction of the arquebus. Despite the impossibility of proving these specific assertions, there is little doubt that Pinto was among the first Europeans in Japan, and therefore his account may be considered more reliable than other books describing this period that were written long afterwards. Another controversial claim, that he fought in Java against the Muslims, has been analyzed by various historians. The Dutch historian P. A. Tiele, who wrote in 1880, did not believe Pinto was present during the campaign, but rather that he wrote his information from secondhand sources. Even so, Tiele admits Pinto's account cannot be disregarded because of the lack of alternative information about Javanese history during the time period; despite the doubts over Pinto's accuracy, his viewpoint may represent the only authoritative source in existence. Maurice Collis, a modern expert on Asian affairs who lived in the area for twenty years, holds the opinion that Fernão's accounts, while not entirely true, remain essentially true with respect to the basic events. Because of this Collis considers Pinto's work the most complete European account of 16th century Asian history.Condition:Some worming to the leather and internal gutters, leather scuffed and cracked at back heal corners, rubbing to raised spine areas, spine head chipped away. Red underling in pencil through out else a good copy.

        Titles of Honor

      London: William Stansby, 1614. [38], 391pp, [43]. Ex-library (Hampstead) with sticker removed from front pastedown, with stamps to reverse of title, to head of first page of dedication and foot of last page and one or two elsewhere. Full-calf, smooth back, with author, title and year to spine in gilt. Gilt device of William Blois of Grundisburgh to centre of covers, single fillet gilt border to covers. Leather a little rubbed and worn, recently rebacked and recornered, lacks clasps, with corresponding small holes to covers. Internally slightly browned to edges, with small chips to fore-edge of pages in signature b, light ink staining to B4r, lacking the two leaves signed * (as often), but generally fairly bright and clean. Two pages of notes about the book and William Blois bound in before title. "Selden, John (1584-1654), lawyer and historical and linguistic scholar....In Titles of Honor Selden acknowledged the contribution of his friends to his scholarly endeavour and personal life. He paid tribute to his 'beloved friend that singular Poet M. Ben: Jonson', while Jonson reciprocated with praise for 'his honord friend' in a commendatory verse: Monarch, in Letters! 'Mongst thy Titles showne, Of others Honors; thus, enioy thine owne (sig. B1r, 2r, d1r). Selden also gave thanks for 'the Bounteous humanity and advise of theat learned Phisician Doctor Robert Floyd' [Fludd] in helping him overcome a 'dangerous and tedious sicknesse' (sig. A3r). The first edition of the work dealt historically with such European honorific titles as king, duke, count, baron, and knight, and also included special chapters entitled 'The beginning of feuds' and 'Turkish dignities'. Breaking away from the genealogical concerns of most heralds and kings of arms, it derived honour from virtue, portrayed all civil honours as granted by the sovereign, and dismissed any claim to a hereditary nobility independent of the state (including the mystique of blood so favoured by some renaissance nobles). Each chapter opened with a discussion of the derivation of a particular title and then detailed its history and variations within a comparative European context, usually beginning with the Roman empire and coming up to the fringes of his own day. Those on dukes and counts observed that under the Romans: 'Dux then properly was at first the Generall of an Armie under the Emperor' (pp. 182-3). Constantine the Great created the rival office of count by sending out important men from the imperial court to govern in the provinces. Not 'long after Constantine', these two offices became 'equall' in status (p. 184). The successor jurisdictions in France, Italy, and Spain continued to use duke and count as titles for offices until under the Carolingians they became attached to particular territories held by feudal military tenure and inheritable. With the collapse of royal power in France, dukes and counts usurped most of the marks of sovereignty, until strong kings of France claimed back those lost powers in the late middle ages. In Saxon England, 'dux' and 'comes' translated the officiary and honorary title of earl, while comes also translated the officiary title of ealdorman. After the Norman conquest, through the introduction of continental laws the new king transformed the nature of an earldom from personal or officiary, 'making it feudall, and hereditarie' (p. 229). Building upon the scholarship of François Hotman, Selden represented the inheritable military tenure of the feudal law as originating in the Frankish empire and spreading to Germany and Italy by conquest and elsewhere in western Europe by imitation. Although the Saxons had military tenures, as seen in the laws of King Cnut, 'Those kind of Militarie Fiefs or Fees as wee now haue, were not till the Normans' (p. 301). Titles of Honor displayed a mature and almost unparalleled grasp of continental evidence and scholarship (including works on provincial as well as national history), and an acquaintance with English evidence (including manuscripts); it also reflected on the nature of law itself" (Oxford DNB). Lowndes 2237. First Edition. Full Calf. Good. 8vo. Ex-Library.

A Racovian Academy printing of one of Sozzini's (1539 - 1604) discourses translated from the Italian into Latin by Valentin Smalcius (1572-1622). The dissemination of Latin texts of Sozzini's writings, as well as those of his uncle, extended their influence to the wider circle of Unitarians and other non-Trinitarians and dissenters, giving rise to the various views subsumed under the label Socinianism. In this dissemination, the press at the Racovian Academy at Raków, Kielce County, in Poland, founded in 1602, was central. OCLC: 11303157.

        Spanish illuminated manuscript on vellum, grant of arms, in favor of Melchor del Peso

      Excellent example of a Spanish Illuminated Executoria, of remarkable artistic quality. 1614. Valladolid. In folio (295 mm x 205 mm). 73 ff. Richly gilt contemporary Spanish calf, retaining original cord, boards with gilt fillets and interlacing tooling enclosing corner and center pieces, spine gilt; slightly worn and rubbed. Contemporary inscriptions to first blank, few folios a little toned but overall fine, with the paintings in splendid fresh condition and striking colors, protected by silk leaves. Remarkable example of a Spanish Grant of Arms or Ejecutoria, made on vellum and featuring two large paintings, the first a splendid rendering of unusual artistic quality portraying the Spanish Royal family, Philipp III with Queen Margarita and sons, along with Saint Francis of Asis and a Bishop or Cardinal holding the keys of saint Peter to the Virgin Mary of Lastra de Aguita (the Virgin Patroness of Anguita, Guadalajara), the border showing Saints in a hispanic-flemish surrounding with floral arrangements, the bottom with legend ?Don Felipe?; the second an impressive coat of arms, with a wide border illustrating war garments ?weapons, flags, helmets and armaments-, some of which appear Middle Eastern, bottom with legend ?Por la Gracia?. Both paintings are signed at the bottom, although we do not by whom. Nevertheless, the considerable skill shown in the paintings ?particularly the hands, faces and expressions- indicate it was made a professional artist. Even more-so taking into account the amateur artistry often shown in Ejecutorias. These documents began early in the 16th century ?the lavish productions to celebrate the granting of arms to the Hijosdalgo-, the trials themselves to prove nobility predate them considerably. Further literature on the subject can be found in the catalogue made for the exposition ?El Documento Pintado? (details on request). The quality of the documents, made by artists at the request of the family who wanted them for their records, depended on the price they were willing to pay.

Expertly bound to style in red morocco, stamped in gilt and blind, spine gilt extra, leather label, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles. Without blanks A1, K3, and K4. Titlepage soiled and repaired, with the lower right quarter supplied in facsimile. Light soiling throughout. Other than loss to title- leaf, a very good copy. The second edition of Coverte's account of his voyage to the East Indies, following the first edition published in London in 1612. The author and his men left Plymouth in March 1607 aboard the Ascension and were among the first Englishmen to see the Cape of Good Hope, arriving there in July 1608. Coverte eventually reached Gujarat, where the ship ran aground while approaching Surat. Not granted permission to remain in Surat, the crew departed to various destinations. Coverte and others set out for the Moghul Court at Agra, arriving there in December 1609. He and other crew members left Agra in January 1610 "with the intention of making their way back to the Levant by the overland route. Travelling by way of Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad...they reached Aleppo in December 1610 and from the coast of the Levant sailed for England. They subsequently arrived home in April 1611" (Howgego). An absorbing account presented in the form of a travel diary, Penrose described the work as a "vigorous narrative...it relates its author's reception by the Emperor Jahangir, and his tedious journey across India, Afghanistan, and Persia, and as such is one of the best examples of a travel journal that the period produced." An extremely popular travel account, a third London edition appeared in 1631, and German translations were printed in 1617 and 1648. The account was also included in compilations of discovery and exploration published by De Bry, Hulsius, and van der Aa. STC 5896. HOWGEGO C211.

        Observationum in hominis affectibus

      Ludwig Konig Basel: Ludwig Konig, 1614. Platter, Felix (1536-1614). Observationum, in hominis affectibus plerisq[ue], corpori & animo, functionum laesione, dolore, aliave molestia & vitio incommodantibus, libri tres. . . . 8vo. [48], 845 [1]pp. Basel: C. Waldkirch for Ludwig Konig, 1614. 170 x 103 mm. 19th cent. quarter morocco, worn at spine, small split in rear hinge. Uneven browning & foxing, but very good. Bookplate. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 3789; 4297.9; 4511.1. A disciple of Eustachi, Falloppio and Vesalius, Platter was one of the foremost pathologists of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, occupying a place midway between Fernel (1497-1558) and Bonet (1620-89). His Observationes, published the year of his death, contains a lifetime's worth of detailed pathological observations of a wide variety of human ailments, including veneral and genito-urinary diseases, tuberculosis, bodily deformities, disorders of the sensory organs, gynecological diseases, etc., gathered from both living patients (Platter was chief physician of Basel from 1571 until his death) and from 48 post-mortem examinations. "For many, Platter's fame is based on the abundance of individual observations contained in the case histories in his Observationes. . . . The Observationes contains observations in all branches of medicine. . . . It is astonishing how [Platter] could see and grasp originalities in every field" (Karcher, Platter, pp. 80-81 [our translation]; also pp. 56-87). Long, in his History of Pathology, credits Platter with performing over 300 dissections during his 57-year medical career--an astounding number if true, since the obtaining of cadavers was severely restricted by both church and secular authorities during this time. Platter's enthusiasm for dissecting is recorded in his lively and entertaining diary, kept while he was a medical student at Montpellier; according to his diary, Platter's love of dissecting even made him turn grave-robber at one point! Platter was probably the first to practice anatomic pathology, noting during post-mortem examinations that certain illnesses appeared to be caused by anatomic abnormalities. He was ahead of his time in including exact dates in his case histories, and would often include the names, sexes and occupations of his patients as well. Platter was also one of the earliest to study mental illnesses scientifically, seeking their origins in physiological rather than supernatural causes; the Observationes contains accounts of all the then known psychiatric disorders together with details of their treatment. Other notable contributions contained in the Observationes are the first known case report of death from hypertrophy of the thymus (in an infant) and an account of a meningioma. Platter has also been credited with including in the Observationes an early description of the deformity of the fingers now known as "Dupuytren's contracture"; however, this is incorrect (see Boyes, On the Shoulders of Giants, p. 22). DSB. Krivatsy 9073. Long, History of Pathology, p. 41. Norman 1716. Waller 7505. Pusey, History of Dermatology, p. 44, crediting Platter with studying "universal exfoliative dermatitis, gangrene of the skin, and the use of white precipitate ointment in pustular eczema."

        Trigonometria plana, et sphaerica, linearis, & logarithmica.

      First edition. "Cavalieri, a pupil of Galileo, introduced logarithms into Italy in his <i>Trigonometria</i> and several other works." (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, No. 3). "From the standpoint of mathematics alone the Italian writer who influenced the science most in the 17th century was probably Bonaventura Cavalieri, ... [he] was one of the first to recognize the great value of logarithms" (Smith: History of Mathematics, p.362). <br/><br/> "Logarithms were introduced into mathematics in the work of Napier in 1614. In Italy such valuable auxiliaries to numerical calculation were introduced by Cavalieri, together with noteworthy developments in trigonometry and applications to astronomy. In this connection we might mention 'Directorium generale uranometricum' (1632), ..., 'Nuova pratica astrologica' (1639), and 'Trigonometria plana, et sphaerica, linearis et logarithmica' (1643). The 'Directorium', the 'Pratica', and the 'Trigonometria' contain, moreover, excellent logarithmictrig-onometric tables." (DSB III, p.152). </br></br> The final 104 pages of the <i>Trigonometria</i> contain Cavalieri's tables; "the main table in this work the logarithms of numbers up to 1000 are exhibited to seven decimals with characteristic and interscript first differences." (Henderson: Bibliotheca Tabularum Mathematicarum, no. 37). <br/><br/> The <i>Trigonometria</i> also contains a preliminary defense by Cavalieri of his method of indivisibles; "Throughout the last three of the four volumes of his 'Centrobaryca' (1635-1641) [Paul] Guldin had commented upon Cavalieri's use of indivisibles and had particularly criticized it very outspokenly in Chapter 5 of the fourth volume. Shortly before Guldin's death [in 1643] Cavalieri published a defense of his method in the section 'Admonitio circa auctorem centrobaryacae' of his Trigonometria (1643, pp. 6-8)". (Kirsti Andersen: Cavalieri's Method of Indivisibles, Archive for History of Exact Sciences, vol. 31, p.295). Cavalieri's full defense of his method appeared in his 'Exercitationes Geometricae' 1647. </br></br> The Erwin Tomasch Library C-52; Riccardi I/1 328; Cinti 111.. 4to (225 x 168 mm), engraved frontispiece pp. 16, 71, (1); (104) and 1 engraved folding plate, contemporary limp vellum, inner hinges a little loose, front pastedown and free end paper with a little worming (hardly effecting the inner margin of the frontispiece), in all avery good and clean copy in its original state

        Fictitious Parrot

      Nicolas RobertFictitious ParrotParis, circa 1670Watercolor on vellum with gold fillet23 3/4? x 20 1/2? framed(professionally framed with a beautiful gold leaf moulding with all archival materials and uv plexiglass)Nicolas Robert (1614-1685) was one of the greatest natural history artists of the 17th century, and his work established standards combining scientific accuracy and esthetic appeal that influenced generations of artists and won the respect and patronage of the French royal family. Robert created a vast, exquisite body of work for the French Crown. Along with other artists, Robert was commissioned by Gaston d?Orleans, brother of Louis XIII, to create watercolors of the rare plants and exotic birds he had assembled in his garden at Blois and the Ménagerie at Versailles. Robert?s talent was recognized quickly as being superior to that of other artists working for the royal family, and after Gaston d?Orleans?s death, he was quickly placed under the patronage of the Sun King, Louis XIV. As a reward for the stunning works he painted for the king?s personal collection, Robert was named ?Peintre Ordinaire du Roi? in 1666, a title that confirmed his continuing fame and patronage.  Robert was the first significant contributor to a collection of fine watercolors on vellum that became known, collectively, as the Velins du Roi (the King?s Vellums). The watercolors Robert completed under Gaston d?Orleans and then Louis XIV for the royal collection fed the interest and provided the inspiration for the great masters of botanical and ornithological art who followed: Jean Joubert, Nicholas Marechal, Gerard van Spaendonck and, of course, Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Thus the extremely fine print work of Parisian natural historians and flower painters as late as 1825 can be traced directly back to the strength of Robert?s tradition. Probably executed for noble patrons, these stunning ornithological watercolors date from around the time of Robert?s period in the court of Louis XIV. The birds are defined with subtle modulations of delicate hues, and the simple yet monumental compositions combine flawless artistry with Robert?s characteristic attention to scientific precision. The vast majority of Robert?s watercolors are housed in public institutions, including the Musee d?Histoire Naturelle in Paris, the British Museum in London, and the Hofbibliothek in Vienna. These watercolors represent an unusual opportunity to obtain original, unique works by a highly important and exceptionally talented artist. The brilliance that made the Sun King recognize Robert as the preeminent watercolorist of his day is still evident in these pristine and charming works.
