        Persio tradotto in verso sciolto e dichiarato da Francesco Stelluti Accad. Linceo da Fabriano all'ill.mo et r.mo sig.re il sig. Cardinale Barberino.

      In Roma, appresso Giacomo Mascardi, 1630, in-4, leg. settecentesca in mezza pergamena con punte, piatti in carta decorata, tagli spuzzati, pp. [24], 218, [20]. Con frontespizio calcografico, ritratto e ill. n.t. incisi in rame. Non è stata legata l'ultima carta che era bianca (cfr. ICCU IT\ICCU\RMRE\002177). Qualche antico segno ad inchiostro sui margini bianchi delle ultime 3 pagine. Un leggero restauro a due carte (nessuna perdita di testo). Lievi e sporadiche bruniture. Questa edizione è molto famosa per il fatto di contenere una delle prime illustrazioni di insetti ingranditi attraverso la lente di un microscopio. Lo strumento era stato inventato da Hans e Zacarias Jansen intorno al 1590 e presto era stato adottato dalla Accademia dei Lincei a Roma. Francesco Stelluti lo aveva usato per produrre dei disegni di api ingrandite e nel 1625 era apparso un foglio volante con la riproduzione calcografica di questi disegni (solo tre esemplari di questo foglio sono sopravissuti). L'incisione fu poi riarrangiata e ridotta per apparire all'interno di questo volume (le api erano infatti il simbolo dei Barberini e il card. Barberini è il dedicatario di questo libro). Nelle note sono presenti anche notizie sulle scoperte e ricerche di Galileo. Cinti 86, Gamba 2053, Vinciana 1766. "Federico Cesi e la fondazione dell'Accademia dei Lincei" (Venezia, 1988) pp. 94-95.

        Il martirio di San Sebastiano

      Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1630, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti l?indirizzo di Israel Silvestre. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ?doppi lettera C con Croce di Lorena? (Lieure 29), rifilata alla linea marginale, tracce di piega verticale e di colla visibili al verso, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione.San Sebastiano è il protettore della città di Nancy e fu invocato contro l?epidemia di pestilenza che scoppiò in citta verso il 1630 e che portò alla morte del padre dell?artista nel 1631. Questo potrebbe essere il motivo che indusse il Callot ad eseguire questo lavoro. Il santo è rappresentato, trafitto dagli arceri, in mezzo ad una sorta di quinta teatrale costituita da elementi classici dell?antica Roma; sulla sinistra il Colosseo, sulla destra una sorta di tempio rotondo e sullo sfondo la collina del Campidoglio con le colonne Traiana ed Antonina, e gli archi di Tito e Settimio Severo, souvenirs del soggiorno romano del Callot (1608/12). Uno die capolavori dell?artista di Nancy. Etching and engraving, 1630 circa, signed at lower right. Example of the first state of two, before the address of Israel Silvestre was added. Magnificent work, rich shades, printed on contemporary laid paper with ?duoble C with Cross of Lorraine?watermark (Lieure 29), trimmed to the platemark, minor repairs perfectly realized, otherwise in good condition. Saint Sebastian is the patron saint of Nancy; he was invoked against the plague that broke out in 1630 and which caused the death of the artist?s father, in 1631. This event might be the reason why the artist realized this work. The saint is depicted pierced by arrows, in the middle of what resembles a theatre wing, realized with the use of classical elements of ancient Rome: the Colosseum on the left, a round temple on the right and, in the background, the hill of Campidoglio with the Trajan and Antonine?s columns, the arches of Titus and Settimio Severo, some souvenirs of Callot?s Roman stay (1608-1612). This is considered one of the masterpieces of the Nancy artist. Lieure 670, I/II; Daniel Ternois in Jacques Callot 1592-1635, pp. 483/5, 637. Dimensioni 327x161.

Bellissima prova, impressa su due fogli di carta vergata coeva, entrambi con filigrana ?cerchio con lettere MC e fiore?, con piccoli margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione.

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      Amsterdam, 1630. No Binding. Near Fine. 14 ¾ x 18 ¾ inches. Fine original color; marginal mend, else excellent condition. A beautiful example in superb original color of the classic Dutch engraving of Capt. John Smith's map of the Chesapeake Bay and region, the first European map of the area. Smith's map was a remarkably accurate work for its period and is a valuable record of Indian tribes that existed at the time. In fact, the map is unusual in acknowledging the role of Indian informants in its creation; Maltese Crosses indicate the areas beyond which were based on Indian reports. Also found on the engraving is a portrait of Powhatan in the upper left. The plate from which this map was printed was engraved in 1618 by Jodocus Hondius Junior, son of the great map and globe publisher. It is now believed (see Burden) that the plate was sold to the Blaeu firm in 1630, at which time the imprint was changed to that of Blaeu. (Ghosts of the incompletely erased J and H of the Hondius imprint are visible beneath that of Blaeu.) The 1618 state of the map, which is extremely rare, was the earliest derivative of Smith's map, which was originally published in England in 1612. The firm of Henricus Hondius, the other son of the master, copied the map from the Hondius-Blaeu version adding its own imprint. Thus, the sequence of Dutch editions of the map, in the folio format, is from J. Hondius Jr. to Blaeu to H. Hondius.Burden 193; Verner in Tooley America, pp. 161-62.

        Florida et Regiones Vicinae

      Leiden, 1630. No Binding. Fine. 11 x 14 inches. Fine condition. A key early map of Florida that differs significantly from previous works. Although Cumming says the De Laet combines information found on the Ortelius/Chiaves and the 1606 Mercator maps, it in fact contains substantial new information not found on these maps. The place names St. Augustine and Tampa Bay are seen here but are not on the Ortelius and the Wytfliet (1597) maps. The general shape of the Floridian peninsula is altered and called 'Tegesta Provinc,' one of the earliest appearances of a name that would be commonly used through the early 18th Century. Unlike the earlier maps, a series of barrier islands appears along the eastern shore of Florida on the de Laët, and a large fictional bay is also added in the southwestern corner of the peninsula. Again, unlike the Ortelius and Wytfliet, islands along the Gulf Coast between Florida and the Mississippi River are shown on the de Laët. In addition, the Suwannee River in the northwestern part of the peninsula is accurately placed on the de Laët but is named the "R. del Spiritu Santu." Hessel Gerritsz (b. 1580/81), the actual maker of the map, was one of the most important Dutch cartographers of the seventeenth century. At the age of 37, he was appointed the chief cartographer of the Dutch East India Company over the senior and more widely known , Willem Blaeu.. He subsequently drew maps for the West India Company as well, of which Johannes de Laët was one of the Directors. De Laët published this map as part of his book Nieuwe Wereldt ofte Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien.Cumming #34; Imago Mundi, VI, pp. 61-62.

        Mappa Aestivarum Insularum, alias Barmudas

      Amsterdam, 1630. No Binding. Near Fine. 16 x 21 inches. Fine original color; excellent condition. The most richly decorative, early map of the island in a very attractive, original-colored example. It was based on Richard Norwood's 1618 chart, executed in behalf of the Bermuda Company. The map thus includes the parishes and tribes allotted to the company's principal members, with their names included, most of which survive to this day. The map vividly illustrates how hazardous the coastline of Bermuda was, and is, to shipping by the almost unbroken ring of crosses signifying wrecks surrounding the island. The map's majestic cartouche depicts Neptune, standing astride the English Royal Arms, bearing a trident in one hand and a Dutch ship in the other. The engraving actually includes two maps of Bermuda of different scales: Nestled within the hook of the island is another, smaller depiction of Bermuda, placed there to show its position and size relative to Cape Cod, Virginia and Nova Scotia. This design proved confusing to some later copiers, who dispensed with the mainland in their renditions while mistakenly retaining the smaller "Bermuda" as a small island off the coast of Bermuda.Palmer, M. Maps of Bermuda, p. 10.

        A bound collection of vellum sheets illuminated with original bodycolour paintings on 28 panels, the vellum sheets originally forming two continuous manuscript rolls, both relating to the De La Broye family, attested to by J. Simon, the chief clerk of the Chamber of Accounts of the city of Lille

      Lille, Spanish Netherlands: 1630. Folio. (17 1/2 x 12 inches). Mounted on guards throughout. Roll 1 (signed twice by J.Simon): 15 vellum sheets, the majority folded, with a total of 27 columns of text (with 9 original integral vignette bodycolour paintings), and 22 rectangular panels flanked on either side by a thick gold rule, each panel 4 1/2 inches wide and containing an original bodycolour painting of flowers with a single figure of a man (in 19 panels) or a bird (in 3 panels) - the men variously dressed in costume of the period and involved in various pursuits: hunting, cooking, fencing, playing a drum, etc. Roll 2 (signed once by J. Simon): 4 vellum sheets, 3 folded, with a total of 6 columns of text and 1 wide horizontal area also bearing text (with 5 integral vignette bodycolour paintings), and 6 rectangular panels (three thick panels approx. 5 3/4 inches wide; three thinner panels approx 3 3/4 inches wide) flanked on either side by a thick gold rule and each containing an original bodycolour painting of flowers with a single bird (in 4 panels); a bird and a snail (1 panel) or a bird, a butterfly and flowers (1 panel). 18th-century vellum over pasteboard, early manuscript title to spine. Important early collection of original botanical paintings celebrating wealth and status through a show of rare and expensive varieties of tulips and others exotic cultivars. Originally produced for the De La Broye family, this series was more recently in the collections of two of the foremost historians of Lille and its great families. Despite their obvious historical importance, the chief interest of these manuscripts to the modern eye is undoubtedly the exceptional illuminated panels that separate each column of text. The overall theme is floral: not wild flowers but the extremely expensive cultivated flowers that were coming to prominence at the beginning of the seventeenth century. This concentration on exotic blooms in the present manuscript was a deliberate attempt to link the De La Broye family with the opulence that these flowers implied. The most famous of these luxury plants was the tulip, and given the time and the place where these drawings were done it is no surprise to find various cultivars of the tulip predominating. It is interesting to note that all the varieties shown are of the most expensive bybloemen group. The courtly interest of the 1600s had by the 1620s become more widespread, and from 1634 to 1637 tulips, like the multi-coloured varieties pictured here, were the flowers which fuelled the tulipomania craze in the Netherlands. At its height, sums equal to the cost of a good-sized house on the waterfront in Amsterdam were gambled on single bulbs. These manuscripts form one of the earliest known collections of images of a significant number of different varieties of tulips: at least twenty are pictured, and although they are not identified, they form a rare and valuable record of the cultivars of the period. In addition to tulips, the images also include pinks, narcissi, irises, martagon lilies, roses and asters. The majority of images are further enlivened by the addition of what are possibly various members of the De La Broye family, all men, all dressed in costume of the period, and all undertaking worthy pursuits. These include a preponderance of military actions: firing a gun, on horseback with sword drawn, on foot with sword drawn, etc., but they are also shown hunting and cooking. All of these figures are placed at the foot of each panel and are worked to a completely different scale to the flowers. The panels without figures have birds or other animals added that are more in scale with the flowers around them. There is a further group of illustrations that are used to decorate the columns of text: a number of these appear to have been used to mask out areas of the text that were not required (the original text can be made out under the paintings), whilst others are used to great decorative effect. The images used in this group include hunting, fishing, animals against a naturalistic background and two men on horseback. The two documents, produced for the De La Broye family of Lille, can be dated to a golden period for the city of Lille when the city and a large area of what is now northern France was ruled over by Spain and formed part of what was then known as the Spanish Netherlands. An examination of what is now a bound collection of vellum sheets of various sizes reveals that they were originally glued together to form two document rolls with the illuminated panels acting as dividers between each vertical column of text. Internal evidence shows that both rolls were compiled for the De La Broye family as proofs of nobility. To achieve the status of gentleman it was necessary for an individual in trade to prove that his family had in the past been of sufficient standing to warrant his being elevated once again. To provide this proof the De la Broye family apparently retained the services of J. Simon the premier greffier or chief clerk of the Chamber of Accounts of Lille. He arranged for the archives to be searched for every reference to the good work or good standing of the family. These extracts (dating from the 13th to the 16th century) were then copied out by skilled scribes using various calligraphic and textual hands (apparently in imitation of the originals). Each extract was headed by a precis of what it was and a note about which original document it had been taken from, and each was attested to by J. Simon. An overall summary of the findings was added which was signed by J. Simon (roll 1: signed twice and dated once 26 October 1630; roll 2: signed once).

        Atlas

      Amsterdam. hardcover. very good(+). Atlas with 104 double page maps and title page in full original color and an index. Folio, measures 22" x 13.5". Bound in original vellum-wrapped wood with gold stamped title and spine; a.e.g. No printed date or title. Binding separating at spine. Ink notations on title page. Creasing and minor tearing to a few maps. Minor scattered stains and foxing, mainly to margins. Maps are generally in excellent condition. This stunning atlas includes maps of the Western Hemisphere, Africa, Asia, Europe, individual European countries, Malta, Tartary, East Indies, Russia, Persia, the Holy Land and regional maps of Spain, Germany, France and the United Provinces. Several maps include various views (Sicily, the Peloponnesian Peninsula, and Crete). Nearly all maps include decorative cartouches, often with various coats of arms and heraldic crests. The title page features the globe (showing the Old World), with Atlas holding up the sky and the sun streaming in with original gold highlights. Most notable however, is the fantastic double hemisphere world map. The beautifully detailed map includes views of the North and South poles, and is decorated with allegorical scenes illustrating the seasons, the elements and the zodiac. Particularly popular, is the drunken scene in the lower right featuring Bacchus being carried. The map itself shows California as an island and misshapen Great Lakes. Incomplete coastlines name New Zealand. This is the second state of the map, with cherubs in the cusps and a distinct border. Frederick de Wit (c. 1630-1706) was a Dutch map seller and engraver, with ties to some of the most famous Dutch publishers: he reissued Jansson's and Blaeu's plates in the 1670s, and de Wit's own works were posthumously published by Covens and Mortier.

        Ignoramus, Comoedia Coram Regia Maiestate Iacobi, Regis Angliae

      1630. [Ruggle, George (1675-1622)]. Ignoramus: Comoedia Coram Regia Maiestate Iacobi Regis Angliae. &c. London: Impensis I.S., 1630. [iv], 161 pp. Copperplate frontispiece. 12mo. (4-3/4" x 2-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules with corner fleurons to boards, raised bands to spine, front free endpaper lacking, small recent owner bookplate (of S. Ives) to front pastedown. Rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, narrow, two-inch cut mark to front board. A few partial cracks to text block, edges trimmed closely with minor loss to text in a few places. Woodcut head and tail-pieces. Some toning to text, faint dampstaining to some leaves. Early owner signature to head of title page, annotations to rear endleaf, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * First edition. Ruggles's classic acerbic satire of the English bench and bar was written in Latin and first performed in 1615. Designed to ridicule the language of the common law and the dullness of lawyers, the play is based on events relating to a legal dispute between the vice-chancellor of Cambridge University and the mayor of Cambridge, Francis Brakin. As one would expect, it incensed the legal community. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:241 (34).

        OF WISDOME, THREE BOOKES

      1630. CHARRON, Pierre. OF WISDOME, THREE BOOKES. Written in French by Peter Charron, Doctor of Lawe in Paris. Translated by Samson Lennard. London, Edward Blount and William Aspley (printed by George Miller, 1630). Engraved portrait of the translator by R. Vaughan, and engraved title with allegorical figures by William Hole. (2)ff., (xxx)588(34)pp. This translation first appeared in 1608. The book in hand is probably the 3rd edition. Charron (1541-1603), one of the 25 children of a bookseller, studied law and then entered the Church. His first books defended the Catholic Church as the Only True Church. In "De la Sagesse" (1603), however, he expressed a skepticism which caused the book to be suppressed in France, though extremely popular in England. He was cynical about human nature, and although he felt religion to be irrational, he advised unquestioning faith. His chief departure was separating morality from religion. His friend and mentor Montaigne thought so highly of him that in his will he asked Charron to wear the arms of the Montaigne family. In early calf, worn at extremities and lacking paste-downs. Dampstain to four leaves of the preface; discoloring to margin of one leaf of "contents,"and light foxing to the two engraved plates. An extremely influential work.
