        d'Y Stroom, en zeegezichten.Amsterdam, "1701" [= ca. 1751]. Foolscap oblong 1mo (33 x 42 cm). Engraved calligraphic title-page (16.5 x 23.8 cm), mezzotint portrait of Bakhuizen (18.5 x 14.4 cm), probably by Jacob Gole, with a 4-line Latin verse by Joan van Broekhuizen printed from a separate plate, and 10 etched plates, the first with a 6-line Dutch verse by Bakhuizen printed from a separate plate. The first plate measures 19.7 x 25.9 cm, the others ca. 17.5 x 23.5 cm. Loose sheets inserted in modern portfolio.

      De Groot & Vorstman 110-115; Hollstein I, pp. 54-57, 1-10; STCN (1 copy); WorldCat (3 copies). Very rare third state of a remarkable maritime print series by Ludolf Bakhuizen (1630-1708), one of the leading marine painters of the Dutch Golden Age. After the calligraphic title and the portrait of Bakhuizen follow an impressive personification of the city of Amsterdam, showing the Maid of Amsterdam riding in Neptune's triumphal chariot, with in the background the 64-gun man-of-war Amsterdam (built in 1688) and the shipyard and depot of the Dutch East India Company, and below, a 6-line verse celebrating the Dutch overseas trade. The other plates show coastal, harbour, river and sea views, including the IJ (Amsterdam), the Maas (Rotterdam) and a family picnicking on the shore of a river, with a wide variety of ships and boats, from large men-of-war to small rowboats, on calm seas and in violent storms.Bakhuizen was already a celebrated marine painter when, at age 71, he turned his hand to etching, producing the present evocative plates, the only prints he ever produced. Slightly foxed, a few light insignificant water stains, otherwise in very good condition. An important series of maritime views, of high artistic quality, here unbound and wholly untrimmed.

        [American bison]. [Netherlands?, 18th century?]. Original woodblock (6.1 x 10.4 x 2.5 cm) illustrating an American bison, cut in endgrain boxwood, closely copied from that cut for Johannes de Laet, Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien , 2nd edition, Leiden, Bonaventura & Abraham Elzevier, 1630, p. 249.

      For printed images of the 1630 woodcut: John Carter Brown Archive of Early American Images, no. 03472-6 (from 1630 ed.); for the 3 editions that use it: Alden & Landis 630/88, 633/65, 640/111; JCB II, pp. 229, 246, 283; Nissen ZBI 2359 (1630, 1633 & 1640 eds.). An original endgrain boxwood woodblock cut to illustrate an American bison (often called an American buffalo), closely copied from one cut for Johannes de Laet, Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien , 2nd edition, Leiden, Bonaventura & Abraham Elzevier, 1630, p. 249 (book VI, chapter 16). The "West Indies" was interpreted much more broadly than today, so the book covers much of continental America: its comment about the bison places it in "Quivira", probably in Kansas. The present block is a close copy, but is about 15% larger than the 1630 image. Allowing for paper shrinkage it must be about 12% larger than the block used in 1630. It is not cut on the plank but on the endgrain, and the density of the fine-grained wood (roughly estimated at 1.07 g/cm3) suggests it is boxwood. One can also see differences in tiny details, such as the hairs of the tail just below the point where it touches the horizon line.It is often supposed that illustration blocks made from endgrain boxwood were invented by Thomas Bewick in 1768, but many authors have noted that the technique probably predated him by many years, though his work made it famous. The block is in very good condition, with only a small break in the top border. It could be used for printing without difficulty. An endgrain boxwood woodblock, cut by hand to illustrate a bison, copied from one used by the Elzeviers in 1630.

        The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes…Very much Enlarged and Amended by Thomas Johnson

      Finely engraved title, woodcut head- & tailpieces, & 2776 woodcuts in the text. 20 p.l. (incl. initial blank & engraved title), 1630, [48] pp., one blank leaf. Thick folio (350 x 210 mm.), cont. calf (well-rebacked by Trevor Lloyd with the original spine laid-down, a few gouges carefully filled-in, corners bruised), panelled in gilt & blind, large gilt device in center of each cover, with initials "W H" on either side. London: A. Islip for J. Norton & R. Whitakers, 1633. First edition of Thomas Johnson's expanded and corrected version of Gerarde's Herball (1st ed.: 1597), the most famous of all English herbals. "Many errors made by Gerard in his text and in the identification of the illustrations were corrected by the apothecary and botanist Thomas Johnson (d. 1644), of London, who prepared an expanded edition of The Herball that first appeared in 1633…Johnson's painstaking revision of Gerard's herbal constituted in itself a valuable contribution to botany and to the art of the printed book. He added the descriptions of many new plants with illustrations, some of them borrowed from the botanical texts published by Christophe Plantin in Antwerp, in this way bringing the total number of engravings to 2,776. Any new passages were carefully marked with special symbols so that the reader could distinguish them from the original text… "The title-page of The Herball is particularly attractive. It was executed by John Payne (1607-1647), one of the most talented engravers of the period…In the upper part of Payne's work we see a luxuriant garden with the goddesses Ceres and Pomona on either side. Below them are the fathers of botany, Theophrastus and Dioscorides, while in the lower section two imposing vases filled with flowers surround a portrait of Gerard, who is shown facing in the opposite direction to that of the portrait by Rogers. The vase on the left is crowned with a bunch of bananas as a tribute to Johnson… "One of the most significant additions made by Johnson was his chapter on the 'Maracot' or 'Grandilla' as it was called at the time (actually the passion-flower). He includes a full page illustration (p. 1592) and refers the reader to Monardes for more information on this exotic species…In the long preface Johnson traces the history of the botanical sciences, analyzing the contributions of celebrated figures from the mythical King Solomon to William Turner…He closes with some critical remarks on John Gerard and the origins of his herbal."-Tomasi & Willis, An Oak Spring Herbaria, p. 84. An uncommonly nice and crisp copy. Bookplates of John Charles Bigham, Viscount Mersey, Bignor Park and Oliver Howard. ❧ Garrison-Morton 1820-(1st ed. of 1597)-"The most important edition of his book is the second, published by T. Johnson in 1633." Henrey, I, pp. 48-54-"Johnson produced an edition that was noteworthy for its many corrections, improvements, and additions" & no. 155. Hunt 223.

      Scheepers I, 589; Tiele, Bibl. 178; WorldCat (8 copies); cf. Chadenat 532; Cordier, Bibl. Sinica 827. Rare popular account of an overland voyage from France to the Far East, ending in China, by Jacques de Bourges (ca. 1630-1714), a companion of the French titular bishop of Berytus (Beirut), Pierre Lambert de la Motte, on the first expedition to the Far East of the newly erected Société des Mission Etrangères. They left Marseille in June 1660, and travelled via Malta, through the Holy Land, Syria and other parts of the Middle East (Iran & Iraq) and India, to Siam (Thailand). Bourges gives extensive descriptions of the people, their customs and costumes, of the places he visits. The book ends with some notes on the bishop's voyage to China by sea and notes on the return voyage of Bourges to France to report in Rome on the conditions for missionising in Siam. Two years later, in 1666, he published the original edition of the present work, in French, based on the diary he had kept during his adventurous voyage. The present Dutch translation followed in 1669 and the prolific Dutch translator J.H. Glazemaker added descriptions of several cities and countries from his own hand.Some slight staining. Leaf G4 with top of corner cut off, leaf M1 heavily restored with text loss. Good copy of a travel account to the Far East.

        [Cuba - Bay of Matanzas] Abbildung welcher Gestalt die Spanischen Silberflotta von dem Hollaendischen General Peter Peters Hayn an der Insel Cuba in der Baya Matanca Anno 1628 erobert worden.

      [Hanau, David Aubry for Mattheus Merian, 1630]. Map (35.2 x 41.9 cm). With a view of the Bay of Matanzas (Cuba), a map of Cuba (South up), and the portraits of "Pieter Pieters Hayn" [= Piet Hein) and Hendrick Cornelisz Lonq [= Lonck].l This work gives a pictorial account of the capturing of "La Flota" by the fleet of the Dutch admiral Piet Hein in 1628. "La Flota" was the yearly convoy bringing silver, pearls and other valuables, including gold, gems, spices, sugar, tobacco, lumber, etc. from the Spanish colonies in the Americas and the West Indies to Spain. La Flota operated between 1573 and 1790. Piet Hein was the first to successfully attack and defeat the Spanish fleet, a major naval achievement in itself. Even the famous Sir Francis Drake never succeeded, despite many attempts. Hein's men did not kill anyone and Hein allowed the Spanish crew members to march to Havana, even supplying them with food. Piet Hein brought the entire cargo home to the Dutch Republic, where the total value of the captured goods (mainly silver) was estimated to be around 10 million guilders (currently about 120 million euro). This was a huge moral boost to the Netherlands, then in its 60th year of the Eighty Years' War with Spain (ended in 1648) and renewed interest in trading in South America and the West Indies. Hein's achievement is celebrated even today, especially during soccer football matches where a song - written in 1844 by J. P. Heije with a melody by J. J. Viotta - commemorating the event is sung by the Dutch. The present edition is the one printed for Merian (and also used for de Bry's "Grand Voyages", published by Merian) after J. C. Visscher. A faint vertical fold in the middle and at the right (identical to the copy in the John Carter Brown Library, Brown University, Providence, RI), otherwise a very good clean copy with wide margins.

        Lucca

      Amsterdam 1630 - Pianta della città tratta dal "Theatrum praecipuarum urbium" celebre teatro delle città del Janssonius, sullo stile del "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" di Braun & Hogenberg. L'opera, pubblicata nel 1657, contiene 500 tavole raffiguranti città di ogni parte del mondo. Contrariamente al lavoro degli acerrimi rivali Blaeu, Janssonius si servì per la realizzazione dell'opera delle lastre di precedenti cartografi ed editori. In particolare nel 1653 egli acquisto da Abraham Hogenberg le lastre del "Civitates orbis Terrarum" che incorporò nella sua opera, ristampandole. Per le piante delle città olandesi, ordinò delle nuove lastre basate sull'atalnte che Johannes Blaeu diede alla luce nel 1649. Per molte delle opere contenute nel 5° volume, quello dedicato all'Italia e denominato "Theatrum celebriorum urbium Italiae.", si servì delle lastre realizzate da Jodocus Hondius per l'opera "Italia Hodierna." del 1627. A differenza di queste ultime il formato è in-folio, con testo sia nel recto che nel verso. Incisioni in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rarissima. Taken from "Theatrum celebrorium" by Janssonius. Very rare. Dimensioni 510 410mm

        L’ebrezza di Sileno

      1630 - Xilografia, firmata in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, completa della linea marginale, strappo restaurato visibile al verso, tracce di piega di stampa orizzontale, per il verso in buono stato di conservazione. La composizione è opera del Rubens, del quale lo Jegher era abile allievo. A lui era infatti affidato il compito di tradurre in incisione su legno i grandi capolavori ad olio che l’artista fiammingo era deciso a pubblicare. Eseguite con forza e grande virtuosismo, le prove derivanti dagli intagli di Jegher donano l’illusione di un disegno a matita. L’incisione è una delle opere più piacevoli dello Jegher, forse eseguita su un modello più preciso, a disegno o a pittura, fornito da Rubens che fu anche editore della stampa. Woodcut, signed on lower right. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper, with complete marginal line, a repaired tear on verso and horizontal signs of print, otherwise in good condition. This composition has been conceived by Rubens, master of Jegher. As a very skilled pupil, he was always in charge of the realization of woodcuts depicting the oils masterpieces that the Flemish artist meant to publish. The woodcuts realized by Jegher, which bear a very strong and excellent stroke, give the illusion of a pencil drawing. This particular work is among the best ever realized by Jegher, maybe drawn after a precise model, either a painting or a drawing, provided by Rubens himself, who also published it. Probably after a design by Rubens and made under his supervision (described under Rooses 680, p.164). The satyr and the faun are after a painting by Rubens ('Drunken Bacchus') of which a copy by Rubens' circle is in the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Angers (Rooses 575). A preparatory drawn modello is in the Cabinet de dessins, Musée du Louvre, Paris. Le Blanc 14, Hollstein 16 II/III; Bodart, Rubens e l’incisione 156. Dimensioni 340 440mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Roma Antiqua Triumphatrix

      Roma 1630 - Pianta della Roma antica , ricostruita dal celebre incisore romano Giacomo Lauro. La carta è circondata da un testo inciso e da venti vignette che simboleggiano momenti significativi nella storia antica della città, mentre due piccole mappe raffigurano i sette colli sui quali sorge Roma. Incerta è la datazione della stessa, che il Frutaz colloca tra il 1612 e prima del 1650. Cartograficamente ispirata a quella realizzata da Etienne Duperac nel 1574, la pianta venne pubblicata da Giacomo de Rossi tra il 1649 e il 1677, anno in cui viene elencata nel celebre Indice della stamperia De Rossi. Incisione in rame, stampata su due fogli uniti origirariamente, colori coevi, lieve restauro con parziale perdita di testo in basso al centro, nel complesso in eccellente stato di conservazione. Map of ancient Rome, realized by the famous Roman engraver Giacomo Lauro. The map is surrounded by a text and twenty illustrations depicting the most relevant moments in the city life, while two small maps depict the seven hills on which Rome was founded. It is not possible to date the plan; Frutaz believes it is between 1612 and before 1650. From a cartographic point of view, the plan is close to Etienne Duperac’s, 1574; it was published by Giacomo de Rossi between 1649 and 1677, whenit was listed in the famous Indice della stamperia De Rossi. Copper engraving, printed on two sheets joined together, contemporary colour, light repair with the loss of part of the text on lower part, otherwise in excellent condition. A. P.

        Il martirio di S. Erasmo

      1630 - Acquaforte, circa 1630, monogrammata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel secondo stato di cinque, avanti l’indirizzo di Giacomo de’Rossi. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "ancora nel cerchio e stella" (Briquet 488), con sottili margini, leggera abrasione all’angolo inferiore destro, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il Martirio di S. Erasmo costituisce il primo incarico pubblico di Nicolas Poussin a Roma, ove il pittore francese si era trasferito nel 1624. Eseguito per l'altare del transetto destro della Basilica di S. Pietro nel quale si conservavano le reliquie del Santo, il dipinto vi rimase fino al Settecento, allorché fu sostituito da una copia in mosaico e trasferito nel palazzo pontificio del Quirinale. Fonti degne di fede attestano l'esistenza di un S. Erasmo, martire, vescovo di Formia, il cui culto era molto diffuso nella Campania e nel Lazio. Il nome di Erasmo, oltre che nei martirologi storici, donde è passato nel Romano, era inserito nel Calendario marmoreo di Napoli. Nell'842, dopo che Formia era stata distrutta dai Saraceni, le sue reliquie vennero trasferite a Gaeta e nascoste in un pilastro della chiesa di S. Maria, dove furono rinvenute nel 917 dal vescovo Bono. Da quel tempo Erasmo fu proclamato patrono di Gaeta e furono anche coniate monete con la sua effigie. Il 3 febbraio 1106 Pasquale II consacrò la cattedrale di Gaeta in onore della Vergine e di Erasmo Nel Medio Evo il santo fu annoverato tra i cosiddetti santi Ausiliatori e invocato specialmente contro le epidemie, mentre i marinai lo venerano come patrono col nome di S. Elmo. Etching, circa 1630 monogrammed in plate lower right. Example of the second state of five, before the address of Giacomo de 'Rossi. Magnificent proof, rich tones, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "still in the circle and star" (Briquet 488), with thin margins, slight abrasion to the lower-right corner, otherwise in excellent condition. The Martyrdom of St. Erasmus is the first public office of Nicolas Poussin in Rome, where the French painter had moved in 1624. Performed for the altar of the right transept of St. Peter's Basilica in which were preserved the relics of the saint, the painting remained there until the eighteenth century, when it was replaced by a copy in mosaic and transferred to the papal palace of the Quirinal. Reliable sources attest to the existence of a St. Erasmus, Martyr, Bishop of Formia, whose cult was widespread in Campania and Lazio. The name of Erasmus, as well as in historical martyrdoms, whence it passed into the Roman Empire, was inserted into the marble calendar of Naples. In 842, after Formia had been destroyed by the Saracens, his relics were transferred to Gaeta and hidden in a pillar of the church of St. Mary, where were discovered in 917 by Bishop Bono. Since that time Erasmus was proclaimed patron of Gaeta and were also minted coins with his effigy. On February 3, 1106 Paschal II consecrated the cathedral of Gaeta in honor of the Virgin and of Erasmus In the Middle Ages, the saint was counted among the so-called saints Helpers and especially invoked against epidemics, while the sailors revere him as a patron by the name of St. Elmo.

        Paesaggio marino

      1630 - Acquaforte, priva di firma. Magnifico esemplare, impresso su carta vergata coeva, sottili margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Nato il 18 marzo 1610 a Firenze, nel 1620 il giovane entra nella bottega dell’orafo Giovanni Battista Fossi, che lascia poco tempo dopo per l’atelier del cesellatore e medaglista Gasparo Mola. Pare che l’artista cominci a copiare le incisioni di Jacques Callot presso l’orafo Orazio Vanni, ed è proprio il maestro di Callot, Remigio Cantagallina, ad aiutare Della Bella agli esordi oltre a metterlo in contatto con Cesare Dandini, presso il quale l’artista fiorentino studia pittura a partire dal 1625. Dimensioni 198x102. Etching, without signature. Magnificent example printed on contemporary laid paper with thin margins, in excellent condition. Stefano Della Bella was born in Florence on March the 18, 1610; in 1620 he started working in the workshop of Giovanni Battista Fossi, a goldsmith. A few years later he went to work with Gasparo Mola, an engraver and medallist. It is said that the artist began to copy Jacques Callot’s engravings in Orazio Vanni’s workshop and it was Callot’s master himself, Remigio Cantagallina, to help Della Bella at the beginning, also introducing him to Cesare Dandini, with whom Della Bella studied painting from 1625.
