        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".

      In Firenza Appresso Pietro cecconcelli Allestelle Medicee..., 1620. 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's preface. 5a:blank. 5b: license. A1a - Vv2a: text, including [34] double-page plates as described above. Vv2b: colophon and woodcut printer'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'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'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'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'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's time."

Luiggi in Genova, title: Nicolo Bardis and below the aforementioned inscription on lower flyleaf: ex codicibus Nicolae Bardi Rapallensis), and Francesco Maria Besaccio; early pen trials on pastedowns.***& & FIRST EDITION, RARE, OF A PASTORAL PLAY BY A CRETAN PLAYWRIGHT, who imitated the form and plot of Guarini’s Pastor Fide to promote his own anti-Venetian and pro-Greek political views. The play is of interest for its illustrations by the Venetian engraver Francesco Valesio, and as an example of Cretan literature written for the Italian public. & & Written in 1619 for the marriage of Calerga, daughter of Giovanni Calergi, to Francesco Quirini, Count of Temenos, the five-act play takes place in ancient Crete. The plot, which features prophecies, sacrifices and temporarily star-crossed lovers, depicts the people of Mount Ida in thrall to the King of Knossos, who is obliged by wrathful Neptune to exact from them a tribute of seven maidens for consumption by the Minotaur. “The author… the son of a Kastro lawyer, evidently wrote his pastoral comedy while a young student at Padua. … Pandimo’s pastoral carries a strong pro-Greek political message. (Indeed it is possible that the pastoral in general was associated in part with Cretan yearnings for emancipation from Venetian rule.…) As Sathas [a 19th-century critic] remarks, ’it is astonishing that Venetian censors allowed the play to be published.’ Pandimo’s aim, however, was not really seditious; he wished to arouse pity for Crete’s plight, disguising the modern reality of subjugation to Venice as a past state of servitude to the King of Knossos (= the Duke of Candia)” (Holton, pp. 80-81 & 97). The wealthy and influential Calergi or Kallergis family for whom the play was written were prominent members of the Greek Orthodox community in Crete. Their ancestors were famous for their participation in anti-Venetian rebellions in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and they no doubt sympathized with Pandimo’s “liberationist sentiments “(op. cit. p. 98).& & The portrait shows the 18-year old mustachioed author; the first engraving, illustrating the Prologue, declaimed by Jove, depicts the god in the clouds astride an eagle, a circular temple in a grove below and Mount Ida soaring above. The five illustrations of the action follow a representational model popular in the early 17th century, in which a single picture shows several scenes from the relevant act, with the earliest scenes in the foreground and later scenes in the background. & & This is the only early edition; the play was reprinted in 2003 by the Hellenic Institute of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Studies in Venice. OCLC lists two copies of this edition in American libraries (Union College and Trinity College), and the Folger also holds a copy. & & Piantanida 4103; Quadrio V:41; Pinto, Nuptialia 172; Allacci 77. For a detailed description of the plot and a comparison to Guarino cf. David Holton, Literature and society in Renaissance Crete (1991), pp. 97-98.& &

        Theatro de los Dioses de la Getilidad - primera parte

      Salamanca : Antonia Ramirez, 1620. Rare 1st edition, in vellum binding which is not original but very old; the binder used a leaf which has a portion of a royal seal on the rear free endpaper with the date 1726; also on the obverse of that leaf is written, "Huno emi libry pothuidie Kalendar gbxu 1728 - JR Vn." which I believe is the binder's signature; I may very well not have all the letters right. The spine is inscribed "Teatro de Los Dioses". Vellum is in good condition; an old rip in the rear cover has been sewn shut. Otherwise it is rippled, a little soiled, and darkened on the spine. The endpapers likewise are rippled and creased, and written on by several different people. The text is likewise good; begins with the engraved title page, which has been reinforced on the foreedge and has an old owner's name at the bottom. The first introductory page also has owner's writing. There is no loss of text anywhere, but there are water stains here and there, the worst being a brown stain at the upper right from p. 897 to the end. The final page of the 'Tabla' (table of contents, appearing after the text) has short tears in the foreedge. All text is Spanish. Note: the second volume of this work was published in 1623, and a third (by a different author) in 1688. . First Edition.

        The Workes of Lucius Annaeus Seneca newly inlarged and corrected by Thomas Lodge

      London, printed by William Stansby, 1620. Folio; 18 hs., 921 pp., 9 hs. (de 11, faltando la última de Index). Extraordinaria portada, grabada en cobre por Renold Elstracke, con interpretaciones alegóricas de la vida y pensamiento de Séneca bajo el mote «sic vivit sic moritur». Encuadernación en media piel con puntas y lomera con adornos gofrados. Segunda edición de la unica version inglesa de la obra de Séneca en el Siglo XVII, publicada originalmente en 1614 por Thomas Lodge, Poeta, dramaturgo, novelista, católico, viajero en América, autor de panfletos, Lodge es uno de los más curiosos personajes literarios de la época isabelina. Su traducción aparece en esta edición con dedicatoria a Thomas Howard, Duque de Suffolk (1561-1626), y con una interesantísima «Epistle to the Translatour», firmada por W.R., en la que se pasa revista a los traductores ingleses de clásicos latinos hasta entónces, puntualizando las dificultades y riesgos de cualquier traducción. La extraordinaria «tudor translation» de los dramas de Séneca ejerció una gran influencia en el teatro isabelino hasta el punto de que T. S. Eliot escribe: «No author exercised a wider or deeper influence upon the Elizabethan mind or upon the Elizabethan form of tragedy than did Seneca», mientras que sus escritos morales, epítome del estoicismo para lectores y escritores, contribuyeron a cambiar la tragedia basada en la idea de la venganza.

        Avvertimenti e Regole circa L’Architettura Civile, Scultura, Pittura, Prospettiva et Architettura Militare per Offesa e Difesa di Fortezze

      Milan: Pandolfo Malatesta, 1620. Very rare first edition of this understudied general architectural treatise from Lombardy, in small folio format, and unusual on two counts: 1) it attempts to distill the contents of a general architectural treatise in brief compass, in a portable format such that it could probably have been utlized “on site”; this is not generally the case with the classic sixteenth century architectural treatises, even those expressly directed to builders rather than humanists, which tended to be in larger formats; and 2) according to the Vagnetti, the brief section on perspective contains an analysis of a specific, well-known picture, Raphael’s ‘Sposalizio’ (albeit, oddly, with the architectural details simplified, above all, the omission of the great 16-sided temple in the background). Although it would seem to be the most obvious thing in the world, we recall no such examples in any of the innumerable perspective treatises we have encountered or handled over many years. (Barca’s knowledge of the picture is a mystery; in 1620, it was in Città di Castello and did not come to Milan until the 19th century, further, as far as we know, it was not engraved.The simplified details and differences between the engraving and the picture almost certainly suggest an intermediary sketch, perhaps a not very accurate one. The work treats arithmetical and geometrical proportion, the Orders (Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian and composite), proportion in a section devoted to sculpture, and perspective in painting as well as architecture. Although the proportional figures owe much to Dürer, the models for the Orders are not obviously derivative, and were probably drawn by the author—for what it is worth, Brunet claims that Barca drew all the plates. Next, Barca treats military fortification offensive and defensive, with theoretical diagrams as well as some plans the author has designed for a specific locale (Moschetto). The Milanese Barca worked mainly in Lombardy; his first documented works were in Milan in the 1570’s (the prison of the Palazzo di Giustizia and the façade of Palazzo della Canonico (destroyed). By 1577, his name is inscribed in the rolls of the College of Engineers in Milan, and in 1583, in conjunction with Seregni, he proposed an alteration to the duomo. His projects for the King of Spain are disputed. In the first decade of the 17th century, he was back in Milan, attached to the Fabbrica of the duomo for a variety of projects (for a full listing, see DBI). NUC lists Chicago and Cleveland; OCLC adds no new copies, but we have located two at the Getty. A facsimile was published in Como in 1997. * Brunet I.651; Cicognara 412; Vagnetti EIIIb12; Riccardi I.79; R. Bossaglia in DBI VI.267-68; not in Breman/Bury (mention, p. 21) and not in RIBA; Cockle 812 (erroneously calling for two “large” folding plates, as the Chicago and 2 Getty copies show, all of the plates are within the pagination.). Oblong folio [20.5 x 26.5 cm] 46 ff., including title with engraved arms of Philip III and 6 whole, 8 roughly half- and 34 roughly quarter page engravings. Cancel on p. 42 present.

After Juris Carolus' 1620 map, which in turn incorporated Iceland Bishop Gudbrandur Thorlaksson's studies from the 16th century, as well as information from Ortelius and Mercator.

Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons.

        Italia.

      impensis ipsius auctoris 1620 (ma 1630) In Folio (405x285); carte 4 non numerate (frontespizio allegorico inciso da Oliviero Gatti, dedica a ferdinando Gonzaga, elenco delle tavole; ritratto del Magini delineato ed inciso da H. Davia nel 1632, pagg. 24 di testo, 61 carte geografiche (di cui 58 a doppio foglio, 2 a mezzo foglio ed 1 ad un quarto di foglio) tutte incise in rame. Pergamena coeva semirigida con titolo manoscritto al dorso. L'atlante di Magini rappresenta il più importante e primo tentativo organico di cartografare tutto il territorio italiano. Giovanni Antonio Magini nasce a Padova nel 1555, dedicatosi assai presto agli studi astronomici nel 1588 fu assunto dal Senato di Bologna alla cattedra di Astronomia dell'università, preferito addirittura a Galileo Galilei. La personale amicizia con il Duca di Mantova Vincenzo Gonzaga consentì al Magini di ottenere da principi e regnanti dei vari governi della penisola il materiale cartografico necessario per la realizzazione delle carte delle allora regioni italiane. Il suo grande sforzo cartografico venne dato alla luce postumo, a causa della sua prematura morte nel 1617, da suo figlio Fabio, che nel 1620 pubblicò in Bologna l'atlante "L'Italia". Composto da un breve testo descrittivo di sole 24 carte, l'opera è corredata di 61 carte geografiche della penisola, e costituisce il primo esempio di atlante italiano. Nonostante sia pubblicata postuma, l'opera è per intero di mano del Magini, che iniziò la realizzazione delle carte nel 1594 circa, dando alla luce per prima nel 1595 la carta del territorio di Bologna. Tutte le carte vennero alle stampe quindi prima del 1620, nelle loro stesure provvisorie, che successivamente furono corrette ed aggiornate per l'edizione definitiva. Tali prove sono rarissime, talvolta reperibili sul mercato, e presentano differenze sostanziali con quelle poi incluse nell'atlante. Per la realizzazione delle lastre il Magini si servì di due dei più famosi intagliatori dell'epoca; il belga Arnoldo Arnoldi e l'inglese Benjamin Wright. Come vedremo nell'analisi delle singole carte, esse derivano da diverse fonti, sia edite che inedite, rappresentando perciò il prodotto di un lavoro personale di comparazione, coordinamento e di vaglio, che viene a conferire alla carta stessa il carattere ed il valore di un prodotto originale. L'importanza di questo lavoro del Magini è notevolissima, come pure l'influenza sulla cartografia della penisola per i successivi due secoli. Fascinoso esemplare con qualche traccia di tarlo ed umidità fino a pag. 13 ed alle carte geogr. finali di Sardegna e Sicilia.Almagià, L'Italia di G.A. Magini, pag. 7:"Ristampa che porta il nome dello stampatore bolognaese Clemente Ferroni?il Ferroni dovette poi, negli anni successivi, continuare a dar fuori l'opera, perché se ne hanno molteplici esemplari ma senza più la data del 1630 e accresciuti invece di un ritratto del magini?".

Grazie ai contatti personali con le istituzioni ed i più importanti cartografi del tempo, Magini ebbe a disposizione materiale cartografico talvolta inedito o comunque non disponibile per gli studiosi. La sua opera costituì il fondamento di tutta la cartografia del XVII secolo, venendo costantemente copiata da tutti i successivi autori. Due bei cartigli figurati, vascelli e mostri marini.
