Varutti-Klefenhausen, Marco (1917 in Hamburg -1989 ebenda):
. Santa Maria della Salute beherrscht die Einfahrt zum Canale Grande. Der Bau wurde von Baldassare Longhena 1631 begonnen, aber erst 1687 fertiggestellt und als Dank für die Errettung der Stadt vor der Pest erbaut. Die oktogonale Form der Kirche, die sich der Lage anpaßt, gestattet Durchblick von allen Seiten. Das untere Geschoß zeigt eine an Palladio erinnernde Verhaltenheit, während die riesigen Voluten, die den Schub der Kuppel auffangen, die Dynamik des Barockstils betonen. Das Äußere besteht aus weißem Kalkstein aus Istrien, während im Inneren dunkelgraue Steinsäulen einen Kontrast zu den weißen Stuckwänden bilden..

HABICOT (Nicolas).
Paris, Martin Colet, 1631. - in-8. 321pp. 2ff. tabl. dépl. Veau, dos à nerfs, guirlande autour des plats, tranches dorées (Reliure du XVIIIs. un peu restaurée). Nicolas Habicot (1550-1624) était anatomiste et chirurgien. Ses leçons publiques d'anatomie dans lesquelles il décrivait la manière de procéder à des dissections de cadavres ainsi que les instruments appropriés, étaient célèbres. On lui doit des découvertes anatomiques et la première laryngotomie réussie (cf. Garrison-Morton, 3244.1). "La Semaine" est son principal ouvrage d'anatomie. "L'auteur a mis dans son livre le même ordre qu'il suivait dans ses leçons publiques et comme il avait beaucoup disséqué il a fait quelques découvertes qu'il a exposées assez clairement " (Bayle et Tillaye). "La 'Semaine Anatomique' a servi de manuel d'amphithéâtre à de nombreuses générations de médecins et de chirurgiens . Il est devenu, un véritable chef-d'œuvre dont la France à droit à s'enorgueillir" (Vaucaire). Quelques auréoles, rousseurs. **Krivatsy, 5184. Vaucaire, Etude sur Habicot. L'Anatomie et la Chirurgie de son temps" (1891).

Frankfurt, Matthias Merian, (1632). 2 vols in one. 4to (205 x 155mm). pp. 196, with engraved title and 29 full-page engraved plates (with blank conjugate to plate 21), 6 of which are printed in the text; 168, with engraved title and 36 engraved plates in text; small tear to preface of 'Apparatus' touching woodcut ornament and a few letters on verso, a very nice copy in contemporary vellum, spine a bit discoloured. First edition of one of the best of the early 17th-century gardening manuals, scientific in its detail and approach. It is known to have influenced John Evelyn who quotes it in his unpublished 'Elysium Britannicum'. Morton describes the work as 'typical of the experience and ideas that began to flow into botany from horticulture' and goes on to recount how Lauremberg rejected the idea of the 'plant soul' having a specific location, because 'horticulturalists knew that plants could live and reproduce themselves from very small pieces cut from the roots (i.e. rhizomes, stolons, etc.) as well as from branches, stems, seeds, and even leaves (as in the case of the Indian fig). Therefore the soul or vital force (vigor vitalis) is not in one part more than another, but diffused through the whole plant body... Lauremberg describes his own experiment, lasting three years, in which two hundred vine cuttings were grown in close association with two varieties of cabbage in order to test an ancient belief, mentioned by Pliny … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio (410 x 271mm). pp. [xxviii including frontispiece and portrait]; [xii, including terminal blank], with engraved frontispiece-title and portrait to part one, and 110 engraved plates with 560 figures of plants; some occasional marginal staining, several leaves with some browning, generally a very good copy, in contemporary yapped vellum, lettered in manuscript on spine, fore-edge worn. A large copy in its original binding, a later edition (first 1612) of one of the most attractive and popular of the early florilegia. The first part of the work is devoted to bulbous plants, and the second to miscellaneous beautiful and sweet-smelling garden plants. 'The first two editions were essentially catalogues for the selling of plants and bulbs, while the later editions were true florilegia intended for the connoisseur and the scientist... Sweerts was born in Zevenbergen, Holland, in 1552, but spent the greater part of his life in Amsterdam, where he worked as an artist and as a merchant in objects d'art and rare or curious natural specimens... His inventory included a wide variety of cultivated and bulbous plant species. His coupling of professions was an auspicious one, for rare flowers were considered prized items by collectors, but unlike the other objects in the connoisseur's collection, their beauty was transient and could only be captured on paper or canvas... Sweert's fame as a floriculturist spread far and wide, and a white iris was even named after him (the Iris sweertii). His name often appears in the correspondenc … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Galilei, Galileo, Astronom und Mathematiker (1564-1642)]. - Antonio del Turco, Goldschmied zu Florenz (fl. um 1630).
[Florenz], 10. VIII. 1631.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt (mit Adresse). Gr.-4to. Mit einem Schuldnerverzeichnis (7 SS. auf 6 Bll. Folio).. An den Florentiner Patrizier Alessandro Caccini mit der Bitte um Gewährung einer Pension an seinen verdienten Mitarbeiter Niccolaio Martinetti. Del Turco fügt nicht nur ein Verzeichnis der wichtigsten von seiner Werkstatt ausgeführten Arbeiten (mit Preisen) bei, sondern auch ein ausführliches Schuldnerverzeichnis ("Lista di Debitori del Faglio levata ad di 11 di Luglio 1631"). Gleich der erste aufgeführte Schuldner ist kein Geringerer als Galileo Galilei, dessen epochemachender "Dialogo sopra i due Massimi Sistemi del Mondo" eben zu dieser Zeit in Florenz in Druck ging, das Werk, für das ihm schon 1633 der Prozeß gemacht werden sollte. Welche Arbeit Galilei bei Caccini in Auftrag gegeben hatte, geht aus der Aufstellung nicht hervor; die Schuld ist mit 26,12.8 Scudi aber eine vergleichsweise geringe, wenn man sie etwa vergleicht mit den 300 Scudi, die der Großherzog Ferdinand II. schuldete, oder den offensichtlich schwer einbringlichen 1330 Scudi, mit denen die Erben nach dem Florentiner Theologen Giovanni Bandini belastet waren, der bereits 1628 als Domherr zu St. Peter in Rom gestorben war. - Durchgehend stärkere Wasserränder bzw. Feuchtigkeitsspuren sowie Randläsuren, jedoch durchwegs gut lesbar.

Selden John, Esquire
London by William Stansby for Richard Whitakers 1631 - The second edition of the work which earned Selden the praise of Ben Jonson, with expanded discourses on England that carried contemporary political ramifications. With the engraved bookplate of Theophilus Desbrisay. With engraved title in red and black, engraved initials and illustrations within the text. Thick 4to, bound in contemporary full calf, the boards framed with a double-rule in blind, the spine with raised bands and with a red morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt. a1-a4, 1-39; [2], 1-24; 1-131 pp. Very well preserved, the text surprisingly clean and still unpressed, minor edge wear to the title-page and endleaves, the binding sturdy and strong but with minor age to the extremities and evidence of earlier expert sophistication. THE FIRST MAJOR WORK OF HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE BY THE MAN JOHN MILTON CALLED "THE CHIEF OF LEARNED MEN REPUTED IN THIS LAND." It is also work for which Seldon was also praised as the "monarch of letters" by his friend Ben Jonson. Jonson's three page verses to his friend Selden are printed in the preliminaries. First published in 1614, this treatise on the titles of nobility, peerage law, heraldry and genealogy remained the most comprehensive work on the subject for centuries. This second edition is expanded by the author and includes further discourses on England. But the work goes well beyond England and Europe and includes Islamic lands and China. Revising the second edition created political ramifications for Selden. In investigating the origins of England’s political structu … [Click Below for Full Description]

[16], 291, [13] pages. 17 cm. First edition. Text in Latin and Hebrew. Imprint date in Roman numerals. Title page in red and black. Published in Leiden. Commentaries on Isaiah 30, by Isaac Abravanel (1437-1508) and Moses Alshekh (1507-1600) . Translated by Constantijn L'Empereur (1591–1648) , a promiment Dutch Hebraist. The translation “is coupled with an attempt at refuting the positions and views of Abravanel and Alshekh. The goal is ‘to give a complete understanding of the satisfaction of Christ. ' Both Abravanel and Alshekh deal extensively with the nature of the Messiah and the messianic era. Their commentaries were extremely well-known to both Jewish and Christian audiences. Alshekh, in his Bible commentaries, resorted to many allegorical and spiritual interpretations. Moreover, Alshekh himself had been influenced by Abravanel, the statesman, philosopher, and exegete, who fled Spain for Italy in 1492. Abravanel's lucid style, influenced by Renaissance literary trends, and his elaborate treatment of issues of common concern to both Christians and Jews, together with his citation of Christian views, made him, from a Christian Hebraist perspective, possibly the most significant of Jewish authors, apart from Maimonides. ” (Entry 91, ‘Christian Hebraism: the study of Jewish culture by Christian scholars in medieval and early modern times, proceedings of a collo … [Click Below for Full Description]
