        Novae Italiae delineatio.

      Amsterdam, 1620 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, colore d'epoca, cm 39 x 50, 8 (alla lastra) più margini bianchi. Titolo in alto a destra, entro cartiglio costituito da tavola sorretta da figure allegoriche con sottostante la ?Lupa Italia? che allatta Romolo e Remo; in basso a destra, entro altro cartiglio con i busti di Romolo e Remo, due scale grafiche di miglia italiane e germaniche; nel mare ci sono navi e vascelli e la testa emergente di un mostro marino. Carta con reticolato e con margine graduato su tutto il perimetro. Testo francese al verso. Tutti gli elementi della carta derivano dalla ?Italia Nuova? del Magini del 1608. La carta conobbe molte ristampe, tra cui quelle realizzate da J. Jansonium e inserite nei più diffusi atlanti olandesi della prima metà del 1600, tra cui quello dei Blaew; tra queste se ne segnala una datata 1641, con scale grafiche in basso a sinistra e con l'inserimento, in basso a destra, di otto stemmi degli stati più importanti. La carta è peraltro identica a quella fiancheggiata complessivamente da dodici vedute di città, da otto riquadri con costumi italiani e da otto stemmi che la rendono ricca di sfarzo e molto decorativa. Un lieve ingiallimento della brachetta centrale, peraltro in bella impressione, a pieni margini e in ottima conservazione.

The 1612 first edition of this translation is excessively rare (the census by E. B.

        Territorio Trevigiano

      Sebastiano Bononi, Bologna 1620 - Great map of Treviso and its environs including Venice. Rivers, mountains and islands are beautifully detailed and map features ornate decorative cartouches. Minor scattered staining to margins, several small wormholes, mainly along centerfold. Magini (1555-1617) was an Italian humanist and professor of astronomy. This rare map was published in his seminal work, "Italia", the first printed atlas of Italy. Although he had been compiling the atlas since 1594, Magini died before its publication. His son Fabio continued his efforts and the first edition was eventually printed by Sebastiano Bononi. For much of the 17th century "Italia" was hailed as the leading primary source of regional Italian maps and their continued use by notable mapmakers such as Blaeu and Ortelius sustained Magini's legend. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 13.5" x 17 7/8".

Small folio, 278 x 203 mms., irregular and inconstent pagination, which sometimes includes the plates, but otherwise the same as the Bridwell copy, i. e., 10: 5, A2, B1, C-F2, G1, H-I2, L2, M1, N-R2, S1, T-V2, X1, Y-Z2,Aa-Cc2, Dd1, Ee-Qq2, Rr1, Ss-Vv2; 82 leaves, pp. [i-x], 1-65 [66] (i.e:88: 22 pages, versos of 19 double-page plates have page number only on one page of text, the other blank and unnumbered; the versos of 3 pages of text, pp. 20, 29 and 42, are blank and not given page numbers) including engraved title page. [34] double-page engraved plates with 47 figures (not allowed for in the numbering of pages, except plate [1], which is pp. [2-3], thus making a total of 33 double-page plates, or 66 unnumbered pages (with figure 42 misnumbered 41 and with figure[41] appearing unnumbered on the same plate as figure 40). Contents: 1a: engraved title page. 1b: blank. 2a - 3a: dedication to Cosimo II. 3b - 4a: preface. 4b: printer&#39;s preface. 5a:blank. 5b: license. A1a - Vv2a: text, including [34] double-page plates as described above. Vv2b: colophon and woodcut printer&#39;s device. Bound in 18th century calf, with older gilt spine in compartments laid down; generally a very good copy with fine impressions of the plates, which are engraved by Jacques Callot and appear her for the first time. Robin Halwas comments, "Amico&#39;s drawings exhibit a new standard of naturalism and topographical veracity. He took the measurements of the plan and elevation himself, expressing them in "the ordinary cane, which is in use in the Kingdom of Naples" (composed of ten palms, corresponding to 7 1/4 feet), or asked others to measure where his access was impeded by the Ottoman authorities. Amico sometimes simplifies and alters what he observes, but scrupulously advises the reader of any distortion, as for example in Chapter 32, where he admits to "correcting" the Church of the Holy Sepulchre by substituting round arches for pointed ones. The value of Amico&#39;s was recognized immediately and the Trattato was plundered by numerous authors, most notably Franciscus Quaresmius (1622) and Olfert Dapper (1677). Rembrandt owned a copy of the second edition and borrowed from it Amico&#39;s rendering of the Temple of Jerusalem as a domed octagonal building.2 When the methodological investigation of ancient remains in Jerusalem began in the middle of the nineteenth century, Amico&#39;s drawings were especially influential, and many scholars attested his accuracy. Archaeological excavation in modern times has diminished the utility of the drawings, however, their value in the historical reconstruction of the shrines, as witnesses to the former state of holy places altered and sometimes destroyed, has not waned. The book will always retain interest as a register of traditions associated with the holy places in the author&#39;s time."

        Principato Citra, olim Picentia

      Bologna: Sebastiano Bononi, 1620. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 13 7/8" x 18.5". Fantastic map of the Amalfi coast showing Naples, Capri, Salerno and the Gulf of Policastro. Features include ornate architectural cartouches and several ships in the stippled water. Minor staining to margins, a small original or early skinning south of the Sorrentine Peninsula, and a chip to bottom edge. Magini (1555-1617) was an Italian humanist and professor of astronomy. This rare map was published in his seminal work, "Italia", the first printed atlas of Italy. Although he had been compiling the atlas since 1594, Magini died before its publication. His son Fabio continued his efforts and the first edition was eventually printed by Sebastiano Bononi. For much of the 17th century "Italia" was hailed as the leading primary source of regional Italian maps and their continued use by notable mapmakers such as Blaeu and Ortelius sustained Magini&#39;s legend.
