        L'Adamo. Sacra rapresentatione.

      Girolamo Bordone, Milano 1617 - In 4° (21,3 x 16). Pp. (26)+177. Splendido frontespizio allegorico inciso e 38 superbe illustrazioni, incise su rame, nel testo. Buon esemplare abilmente lavato, conserva la patina del tempo e qualche traccia duso nonché una scritta a penna al titolo. Legatura coeva tutta pergamena, reinserita, cornice oro ai piatti e stemma della fam. Boncompagni nei comparti del dorso. Un restauro alla cerniera. Tagli dorati. Seconda edizione di questo magnifico libro, tra gli esempi più riusciti delleditoria del teatro italiano del Seicento. Originariamente pubblicato nel 1613, è qui sostanzialmente reimpresso con piccole varianti. Salvioli lo reputa «la composizione che può dirsi il capolavoro drammatico del secolo XVII»; il testo costituì una fonte primaria dispirazione per il Paradiso perduto di Milton. La finezza delle incisioni è legata alla mano di Cesare Bassano, che lavorò sui disegni del pittore lombardo Carlo Antonio Procaccini. The second edition of this very important text, profusely illustrated and almost identical to the first. Some critics refers to LAdamo as one of the most influential work in Theatre plays and one of the very best in Italian Seventeenth century tradition; also Milton for his Paradise Lost takes some inspiration from this work. A very good copy, expertly washed, neverthless some dust here and there. A few unobtrusive ink on title-page, overall a pleasant copy in his own vellum binding, recased and with title manuscript on spine. ALLACCI, n. 837. CICOGNARA, n. 1423. PIANTANIDA, n. 4125. BELLONI, Il teatro italiano del Seicento, pp. 377-379

        HISTORIA GENERAL DEL PERV TRATA EL DESCVBRIMIENTO DEL; Y COMO LO GANARON LOS ESPAÑOLES. LAS GUERRAS CIUILES QUE HUUO ENTRE PIÇARROS, Y ALMAGROS, SOBRE LA PARTIJA DE LA TIERRA. CASTIGO Y LEUANTAMIETO DE TIRANOS: Y OTROS SUCESSOS PARTICULARES QUE EN LA HISTORIA SE CONTIENEN. ESCRITA POR EL YNCA GARCILASSO DE LA VEGA.

      [Cordova: Por la viuda de Andres Barrera, y à su costa, ]. 1617 - Large woodcut vignette on title. Folio. Contemporary limp vellum. Some minor worming with occasional loss, title shaved with loss of imprint, a few other leaves shaved with loss of catchwords. Else very good. A fine unsophisticated copy of El Inca's history of Peru: a fundamental history of early America, here in its second issue differing from the first only in its variant titlepage. The second issue of the second part of Garcailaso de la Vega's famous HISTORIA GENERAL. or "Royal Commentaries" which had been published first, a few months earlier in Cordova, in 1616. This issue includes the same text block as the first, with only a variant title page with a different and larger vignette of the Virgin, and the words "y à su costa" added to the imprint. The first issue is virtually unobtainable and is known in only two copies (at the Bibliotheque Nationale and the John Carter Brown Library). The text and title for the first issue were probably printed in late 1616, indeed the errata leaf includes the date "12. de Novembre de 1616" and the JCB copy contains both the 1616 and 1617 titlepages. For the present second issue, the 1616 title was cancelled and a new reset titlepage dated 1617 was added to the original printing of the text. The two parts of Vega's history are actually considered to be two separate but complementary works, which were originally published separately. This second "part" is largely concerned with the period between the Spanish conquest and the civil war in the area. The critic, Menendez y Pelayo, called the HISTORIA GENERAL. "the most genuinely American book that has ever been written, and perhaps the only one in which a reflection of the soul of the conquered races has survived." "Like the first part, the second is a commentary rather than a history, for.'El Inca' quotes largely from other writers.always carefully indicating the quotations and naming the authors. But his memory was well stored with anecdotes that he had heard when a boy; and with these he enlivens the narrative" - Winsor, p.569. Garcilaso de la Vega, known as "El Inca," was born in Peru and spent his formative years there, living out his later life in Spain. His father was a Spanish conquistador and a participant in the events that his son chronicles, while his mother was an Inca princess born in Cuzco. "He was a gentleman of refinement and possessed of much learning, speaking Spanish and Quichua from infancy. A descendant of the proud race of the Incas, he was a most industrious and careful historian of the evil fortunes of his race, as well as a chronicler of the victories of the conquerors" (Maggs). Vega's contemporary record of the early Spanish period in Peru is most valuable, as it is based on eyewitness testimony and personal observation. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 617/55. FIELD 590 (note).

With decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces, historiated initials, and eight woodcuts in the text, seven of them maps of Venice, Naples, Rome, Genoa, Paris, Jerusalem, and Constantinople, and one a plan of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Title pages with ink ownership inscriptions of William Lascoe, Gyles Killingworth, and John Harrison (all 17th century) and James White (dated 1779), front pastedown with modern bookplate of Athol H. Lewis; occasional ink or pencilled marginalia. STC 18205. Title opening a bit soiled and darkened (perhaps because of protracted exposure to light while being exhibited?), the leaf on the left expertly backed, the one on the right probably washed, first half of the text with light dampstain across half the lower margin (usually very faint and small, but sometimes reaching up through six or eight lines of text), final 50 leaves with minor worming at inner margin (not touching text), one leaf with corner restored (no text affected), a number of other minor defects (slight soiling, small burn holes, smudging here and there), but still a surprisingly fresh and mostly rather bright copy of a work usually found in deplorable condition, and in an extremely appealing unworn sympathetic binding. This is the first edition of an early English-language combination of travelogue (Part I), military history (Part II), and guide for tourists (Part III), written by someone who had by his own admission longed from his childhood to see the world. After matriculating at Cambridge and becoming a fellow of the college, Moryson (1565/6-1630) received permission to suspend his fellowship while he travelled abroad through the Low Countries, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, the Eastern Mediterranean, Jerusalem, Tripoli, Antioch, and Constantinople. According to the DNB, "he was fluent in German, Italian, Dutch, and French, and his linguistic ability served him well in regions where an Englishman might expect to meet hostility: he generally posed as German or Dutch in the more dangerous states in Italy, adopting a second cover as a Frenchman when visiting Cardinal Bellarmine at the Jesuit college in Rome" and so on, his disguises also including Bohemian and Polish attire. The first part of this book is a detailed account of those travels, reporting on the routes he travelled, evaluating the accommodations available, enumerating the amounts of time and money expended, and critiquing the "must-see" sights of the various locales. In the second part, Moryson deals with the years 1599-1602, which he spent in Ireland. There, he acted as secretary to Lord Mountjoy, commander of the English troops fighting the uprising of Irish chieftains known as the Nine Years' War or Tyrone's Rebellion. The final, and perhaps most entertaining, portion of the work is a sort of 16th century "Lonely Planet Guide" in which our author describes the customs, dress, diet, economies, and politics of European countries, with an eye toward helping the contemporary traveller avoid pitfalls and faux pas. As the DNB observes, these sometimes humorous accounts of "hard-drinking German artisans and their sober wives, Italian gentlemen and courtesans, . . . entrepreneurial Dutchwomen and their downtrodden husbands, impoverished Scots, and spendthrift P [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Different versions of printer's device on title and on last (otherwise blank) leaf. 5 works in 1 volume. 4to. Contemporary limp vellum. Five neo-classical studies reflecting the wide range of interests of the celebrated Flemish humanist Joest Lips (1547-1606), who initiated the renewed study of Roman military methods in the Netherlands. The essay on the Greatness of Rome in dialogue form contains several chapters of military interest: book 2, ch.10 on the public expenses of maintaining an army, book 4, ch. 3 on justice and clemency in war, and book 4, ch. 4 on the strength of the Roman army. The treatise on public spectacles or gladiatorial games remains a valuable source for our knowledge of ancient combat. The evocative engraved illustrations by Otto Vaenius (1556-1629), a teacher of Rubens, include: folding plates showing 'meridiani' armed with swords only fighting at a banquet for the entertainment of guests, gladiators performing at a funeral, sham-fighting with wooden staves and fighting to the death with swords in an amphitheatre; half-page engravings depicting a variety of combats: women and dwarfs (favoured by the emperor Domitian), a 'retirarius' or net fighter armed with a trident against a 'secutor' or heavily armed swordsman, a 'mirmillon' with helmet, shield and sword against a Thracian with buckler and curved dagger, a Samnite with body amour, oblong shield and short sword, essedarians throwing javelins from chariots, 'andabatae' or horsemen with closed helmets and spears, 'dimachaeri' with swords in both hands, 'lacearii' with lasso and sword, 'postulaticii' or heavily armed prize fighters who made only special appearances, and 'catervarii' who fought in bands. The famous study of Roman amphitheatres, here in the last edition corrected by the author, is dedicated to the great geographer Abraham Ortelius (Funck, p354 & Fowler 183 (note). The plates show the Colosseum with gladiatorial games in progress, and the theatres of Verona, Pola, Nîmes, and Doué. The study of the Vestal Virgins, illustrated with delicate engravings of coins and cameos, is followed by a description of great libraries of the ancient world in Egypt, Greece and Rome. Lipsius, a professor at Louvain, was a close friend of Plantin and his successor Moretus, who between them, published nearly all of his works.

        La Gerusalemme Liberata di Torquato Tasso. Con le annotationi di Scipion Gentili, e di Giulio Guastavini, et li argomenti di Oratio Ariosti.

      Giuseppe Pavoni for Bernard Castello 1617 - Third illustrated edition, after the first of 1590 with less elaborate engravings and the second of 1604 with small woodcuts, each by Castello. Royal quarto bound mostly in eights, 30.5 x 21.5 cm overall, the pages 29.6 x 20.3 cm. Engraved dedicatory title with portrait of Carlo Emanuello di Savoia, second engraved title with portrait of Tasso above view of Venice and full page engraved illustrations facing the opening of each of the 20 cantos, all by Bernardo Castello, engraved by Camillo Cungi. Printed on fine, thick laid paper with wood-engraved headpieces, pictorial initials and tailpieces throughout. Collates [16], 255, [1], 71, [1], 36, [4] pages, complete: [3 ll. (blanks)], 1 l. (engraved dedicatory title), 1 l. (second engraved title), 1 l. (dedication), 9 pp. (prefatory poems), 1 p. (engraved illustration for first canto), pp. 1-244 (Cantos), pp. 245-255 ("Tutti le stanze intere"), [1 p.], pp. 1-71 ("Annotationi di Scipio Gentili"), 1 p. ("Al Lettore"), pp. [1]-32 ("Luoghi osservanti dal Mag. Giulio Guastavini"), pp. 33-36 ("Allegoria del poema"), pp.36-[40] ("Tavola"), [3 ll. (blanks)]. Full green morocco lavishly gilt-tooled by Josefina L. Díez Lassaletta circa 1960's, spine in six paneled compartments with raised bands with scrolling borders and floral corner tools, covers in three panels with elaborate rolls and tooling and central armorial achievement, cover edges blind-rolled, dentelles paneled with gilt rules between rolls, gilt edges decorated with author's name (top), title (fore-edge) and date (bottom) in stylized brown lettering outlined with stippling, gold and beige floral brocade doublures and endleaves. Overall very good, spine faded to brown, slight corner edgewear, the ornate binding else well preserved; light scattered foxing, moderate offsetting from illustrations onto facing pages, other minor scattered paper defects; the text block square, strong and well printed on crisp and generally bright paper. Brunet V 666; Gamba 948 n.; Serassi (1768), p. 550 ("Edizione bella e magnifica"). The heritage in art of Gerusalemme Liberata, the towering epic poem of the Italian Renaissance, flourished quickly after the release of the first edition in 1581. The first embrace, actually preceding the first edition and reaching into the years when Tasso was correcting his manuscript, was Domenico Mona's 20 pen and wash drawings pasted above Orazio Ariosto's autograph argomenti for Tasso's cantos, now in Biblioteca Comunale Ariostea at Ferrara. Castello's first illustrated edition appeared in 1590, a volume some six centimeters less tall than the present edition of 1617 and less complex in its engraved compositions, followed in turn by the distinctly inferior "piccola" issue of 1604 with Castello's small woodcuts and Imperiale's arguments. Castello's inventions, of course, were intended as facing pages opening the cantos, as compared with Mona's illustrations for the argomenti (here framed by woodcut surrounds). Castello's drawings for the 1590 engravings have been dated to 1586, but Castello had become friends with Tasso in Ferrara as early as 1574. The genesis of Castello's artistic collaboration with Tasso may therefore extend back to the completion of Tasso's first drafts, circulated from 1575 through Scipione Gonzaga for the private criticism of peers, scholars and prelates. Castello's style and imagery changed little over the years, and thus the 1617 edition, commissioned by Castello from Pavoni in Genoa and engraved for him by the Roman engraver Camillo Cungi, represents a culmination of Castello's association with Tasso and his circle and Castello's long-nourished reputation as a pre-eminent illustrator of the great poem. Provenance: blindstamp of an hourglass bracketed above and below with the initials "R.P." and the words "DAMMI TEMPO"; armorial achievement on the covers of the family of Alexander Anderson (1775-1870), first engraver on wood in America.

        PIGNEROL.

      Seconda metà del secolo XVII (mm 171 x 335 più marg.)Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, senza testo al verso. Entro la parte figurata, in alto, titolo. La bella tavola, di notevole rarità e interesse topografico, raffigura una veduta di Pinerolo negli anni della dominazione francese: l'abitato, cinto dai bastioni, è dominato dalla celebre "citadelle", fortezza in cui (secondo la tradizione) sarebbe stato rinchiuso il prigioniero noto come la "Maschera di ferro". L'opera è tratta da una delle più importanti pubblicazioni topografiche del Seicento, il Theatrum Europaeum, edita a Francoforte a cura di Abelin, fra il 1617 e il 1638, e reimpressa più volte fino al primo Settecento. Merian, incisore elvetico, fu assai attivo a Francoforte come topografo, incisore ed editore, valendosi della collaborazione del figlio e di Martin Zeiller. Veduta prospettica della città di Pinerolo, in Piemonte, con le Alpi sullo sfondo e alcune figurine umane in primo piano; l'abitato è racchiuso entro possenti bastioni, di cui è indicato il nome nelle didascalie, ed è dominato da una celebre fortezza, rappresentata in alto a destra e oggi non più esistente. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.
