Ottavio LEONI detto "Il Padovanino" (Roma 1578 circa - 1630)
Acquaforte e bulino, 1625, firmata e datata in lastra negli esemplari di secondo stato. Magnifica prova del raro primo stato di due, avanti lettera, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Celebre per i suoi ritratti di tutta l'aristocrazia romana degli inizi del XVII secolo, il Leoni, romano di nascita, deve il suo soprannome alla città natale del padre, anch'egli pittore di ritratti. Controversa la paternità del volto effigiato: secondo il Mariette, grande appassionato di disegni ed incisioni del Leoni, si tratterebbe di Mario Nuzzi detto "Mario de' Fiori", mentre più ragionevolmente si tratta del suo amico Tommaso Salini, ipotesi confermata dalla leggenda aggiunta nella prova del secondo stato. Ai lati del ritratto principale, un curioso accostamento di due testine incise al bulino, ad avvalorare il fatto che la lastra non gli fu commissionata, ma venne realizzata in tutta libertà. Nel 1603 il Leoni venne coinvolto in un'azione diffamatoria ai danni di Caravaggio dal pittore Giovanni Baglione. Testimone al processo fu proprio Tommaso Salini, che dichiarò invece di aver ricevuto delle strofe che criticavano Baglione scritte da Orazio Gentileschi e da "Ottavio Padovano'". "Etching and engraving, 1625, signed and dated on plate in the example of the second state. A magnificent impression of the rare first state of two, before the letters, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, in excellent condition.

A letter from religious official "the most modest servant" Hermannus Averdunck to Pope Urban VIII. Among obligatory veneration and secondary petitions Hermannus complains about the shock imposed by Turks "..plebis suae corda ingenti Turcarum pauore concussa.." as well as asks for Pope's protection against other "Barbarians". The most important part of this letter is Averdunck petitions Urban VIII regarding canonization of Elizabeth Queen of Portugal: "..B. Elizabetha Portugallia Reginae, canonizationis solennitatem expectans..". Per Catholic Encyclopedia, Urban VIII canonized Queen Elizabeth of Portugal May 25th 1625, about two weeks past current petition. Dated May 8th 1625. Size: 10.5" x 8". See other items.

JOHN MINSHEU
London: printed by John Haviland, 1625. Second edition, second issue (STC 17945.5); folio, [4] & 760 columns; last leaf with bottom margin restored (no loss of any text), mild waterstain pervades the bottom gutter and margin throughout, with occasional deterioration of the paper; other modest stains throughout, mostly in the gutter; early 19th century quarter calf, brown morocco label; spine ends chipped, spine worn; a good copy. A famous polyglot dictionary, noted for its emphasis on etymology. "Quite apart from word-lore," writes Ernest Weekley, "Minsheu's work contains vast and various information for every kind of archaeologist, and I can think of few better single volumes for an intelligent Robinson Crusoe." Although this second edition omits two languages contained in the first edition of 1617 (Welsh and Portuguese), it is "preferred by some for its additions and corrections" (see Lowndes, 1569). The book is also a typographic wonder. The liberal use of fonts and design mark the beginning of the conscious design of the lexicon, as such. Kennedy 2718; Alston II, 107; Zaunmuller, p. 304; Graesse IV, p. 533; Vancil, p. 165.

BAL 772; Berlin Kat. 2256; Lipperheide 1037; Warmholtz, Bibliotheca Historica Sueo-Gothica 207; for Dahlberg: Thieme-Becker VIII, p. 276. A magnificent series of hundreds of plates showing Sweden's (and Finland's) cities, gardens, palaces, churches and antiquities, executed by such prominent artists as Willem Swidde, Jean Marot, Adam Perelle and Jan van Aveelen. Erik Jönsson Dahlberg (1625-1703) was a military engineer and subsequently Director of Fortifications to King Karl X of Sweden. He spent three years in Frankfurt am Main, where he became acquainted with the brothers Matthaeus and Conrad Merian, then working on their epoch-making Theatrum Europeaum and their famous topographies, which greatly impressed Dahlberg. Indeed, his Suecia antiqua et hodierna "was modelled closely upon the format of Topographia Galliae (published 1655) but Dahlberg was also to improve upon his models in making Suecia more exhaustive than they" (BAL).Bookplate on pastedown. A few plates browned, one mounted on another leaf. Front hinge and head and foot of spine expertly restored. A "kunstgeschichtliche Quelle von unschätzbarem Wert und ausserdem eine ganz hervorragende künstlerische Leistung" (Thieme-Becker).

The wealth and power of this small republic were stimulated by the fall of the merchant city of Antwerp, the economic and financial centre of North-Western Europe in 1585, and by the arrival, especially in Amsterdam, of numerous Flemish refugees. Among the refugees were also many Sefardic Jews, many of them merchants. These Jews had fled from Spain after the forming of the Iberian Union of the Kingdom of Spain and Portugal in 1580, and especially after the Reconquista in 1492. The ties between Sefardic Jews in the Netherlands and Sefardic Jews in Venice and Istanbul made it possible for the young Republic to replace the Venetian seapower, and become the dominant factor in Mediterranean commerce.

Spangenberg (1567-1636), Sohn des ?berühmten Dichter-Theologen Cyriacus.? (Dünnhaupt) seit den Arbeiten Fritz Behrends 1905 bzw. 1914 weitgehend unbestritten.

V. Andreae sich in Straßburg aufhielt und möglicherweise mit Spangenberg, der seit 1577 dort lebte, in Kontakt kam, laut Vorwort 1617, zur Zeit des Höhepunkts der Rosenkreuzerei fertiggestellt, wurde Spangenbergs ?satirischer Roman gegen die Rosenkreuzer?

EUCLID. - [FIRST PRESENTATION OF ALL 15 BOOKS OF EUCLID'S 'ELEMENTS' IN GERMAN]
Nürnberg, Simon Halbmayern, [1625]. 4to. Charmingly bound in a full vellum binding made of a 15th century manuscript leaf with lovely red and blue initials. Leather ties. Light dampstain in lower part of outer margin, otherwise fine. Richly illustrated throughout. (8), 92 pp. ¶ The exceedingly rare first presentation of all of Euclid's 15 books in German (the 1562 Basel-edition containing only the first 6 books).The present edition, which was edited by the mathematician Lukas Brunn, is more a paraphrase, with a selection and compilation from the 15 books of Euclid than a literary translation from the original Greek text. Hoffmann (II, 49) also observes in the commentary of a work published in Jena in 1653 under the title "Teutscher Euclides" that this is not a translation in the true sense. The first full German translation of all 15 books appeared in 1651. Thus, the present version of Euclid's elements in German predates the actual translation by 26 years and constitutes the erliest version of the entire 15 books of that groundbreaking work in the German language. Editor Lukas Brunn was a student of mathematician Abraham Riese and a correspondent of Kepler. "There are few books that have played a larger part in the thought and education of the Western world than Euclid's "Elements". For more than twenty centuries it has been used as an introduction to geometry, and only within the last hundred years has it begun to be supplemented, or supplanted, by more modern textbooks.

ACCOLTI Pietro (1578-1642)
PIETRO CECCONCELLI, 1625. Legatura moderna con pergamena floscia da reimpiego, unghie di protezione, punti in pelle allumata; tagli rossi. 12 pagine non numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo e ampie armi incise su rame del cardinale Principe Carlo Medici. 152 pagine numerate; 4 pagine numerate, le prime due con illustrazioni silografiche di poliedri geometrici; le ultime due sono per il registro con marca silografata e bianca l'ultima. Prima rara e unica edizione di questo importante trattato sull'ottica e la prospettiva pratica, di particolare interesse per i pittori. Cfr. Riccardi I, 4 "alquanto raro ed assai pregiato". Cicognara, 802: "Opera celebrata". Il testo è suddiviso in tre parti, la prima riguarda le superfici, la seconda gli oggetti, e la terza tratta delle luci e delle ombre. Il testo rappresenta un importante contributo alla teoria delle prospettive, dei punti di fuga e delle anamorfosi. Mentre l'anamorfosi prospettica, che contrasta la distorsione e la risoluzione di un'immagine con un leggero movimento fisico dello spettatore, era stata impiegata fin dal Rinascimento, Accolti dimostra lo sviluppo della comprensione barocca della prospettiva dell'immagine tradizionale o "ottica", raccomandando l'uso di uno specchio piano per coniugare due punti di vista di un'immagine, allo scopo di renderli intercambiabili e simultanei, un effetto di prospettiva tanto strano quanto ingegnoso. Questa teoria pose le basi per l'evoluzione dell'uso di specchi di forme diverse e lo studio dell'anamorfosi catottrica. Il lavoro contiene anche la prima stampa di una parte de … [Click Below for Full Description]

GUYON (Loys, Sieur de la Nauche).
A Lyon, chez Antoine Chard, 1625. 2 volumes in-8. 28ff. 912pp. 15ff. (1f.blanc). + 8ff. 589pp. (i.e. 591). 15ff. Plein vélin souple du temps. Deuxième édition, très rare, de cet ouvrage paru pour la première fois en 1615 chez le même imprimeur. Originaire de Dole en Franche-Comté, Louis Guyon (1527-1617) s'était installé en Limousin où il avait acquis le fief de La Nauche près d'Uzerche. Cet ouvrage fameux qui mêlait médecine empirique et secrets de beauté, contient des considérations intéressantes sur une multitude de maladies. Le premier livre consacré "aux vices, difformitez et maladies de la teste", contient par exemple des indications sur les affections psychiatriques, la chute des cheveux, les maladies des yeux, l'entretien des dents et le traitement de leurs affections, le bec de lièvre, etc. Ailleurs, on trouve également des observations sur la diététique, la gynécologie, la cosmétique, etc. "Le 'Miroir de Beauté' de M. de la Nauche, comme le nomme Meyssonnier, a ainsi eu près d'une douzaine d'éditions. En le feuilletant aujourd'hui, on ne s'étonne pas trop du succès qu'il obtint. En dehors du mérite scientifique attesté par le suffrage du savant commentateur, l'ouvrage présente un vif intérêt de curiosité. Ce n'est pas un livre de pure doctrine. La thérapeutique si absurde et si étrange de l'époque s'y applique aux cas les plus variés et les plus extraordinaires. Dans ce cadre de la prophylaxie de la beauté et de la santé, l'auteur a accumulé les renseignements sur les idées, les mœurs, les habitudes de ses contemporains, l'esthétique et la plastique telles qu'ils … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ottimo stato di conservazione, salvo un chiaro alone violaceo sulle ultime venti carte (più evidente sulle ultime dieci). Prima rara edizione.

Lo stesso Re, inoltre, annota riferendosi proprio al lavoro del Magazzini come le patate fossero conosciute a Firenze ‘prima del tempo in cui, secondo altri, vuolsi fossero coltivate in Italia. Furono colà trasportate dalla Spagna e dal Portogallo col mezzo dei Padri Carmelitani scalzi’. Moreni (II, p. 9) descrive la ristampa del 1634 e cita in nota questa prima.

A prodigy in his youth, Grotius became a statesman and thinker of the greatest integrity whose influence on modern European thought can scarcely be overestimated. In 1619, cutting short a successful career in the law and diplomacy, Grotius was sentenced to life imprisonment in the Louvestein fortress in Holland by order of the stadtholder, Prince Maurice of Nassau, for having attempted to orchestrate a compromise between the Calvinist and anti-Spanish party, led by Maurice, and the more moderate Remonstrant party, who advocated self-government of the Dutch states in matters of religion.

Cavacci, Giacomo
In Typographica Pinelliana, Venetiis, 1625. [12],157,[4]pp. (lacking preliminary blank; [cross]4 bound out of place after pi4, and wanting the terminal signature a1-4, the latter printing "Posteritati ex rebus à Leonardo Donato Venetiarum."). Quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards. Engraved title and 32 engraved plates. Woodcut historiated initials and decorative tailpieces. Some spotting and occasional ink annotations (including an ownership signature on F2), several tiny holes in plate 2, scattered soiling and occasional discolorations or tidemarks, several old ink spots or smears in text; generally, in spite of the manifest imperfections, a reasonably sound copy. A handsomely illustrated edition of this collection of prose sketches and engraved portraits of religious hermits, edited by Lorenzo Pignoria, and with a prefatory poem by Goergius Camerarius. The fine engraved portraits of the hermits were executed by Francesco Valesio, and generally portray them in rustic settings, usually engaged in contemplation or prayer, or, as in the case of Didymus Celliensis, who is portrayed walking among all sorts of reptiles, including a three-headed dragon, engaged in their most characteristic acts. Another engraving, signed L.P., is a city view. Cavacci was a Benedictine monk in the monastery at Padua, and the first edition appeared in 1612. BRUNET I:1693. [Attributes: First Edition]
