        The Nature of Man. A learned and usefull tract written in Greek by Nemesius, surnamed the philosopher; sometime Bishop of a city in Phoenicia, and one of the most ancient Fathers of the Church. Englished, and divided into sections, with briefs of their principall contents by Geo: Wither.

      Printed by Myles Flesher for Henry Taunton 1636 - title printed in red and black, without the initial blank, pp. [xlii], 661, 12mo, contemporary calf, sometime (?19th century) rebacked, black lettering piece, spine cracked down centre, upper joint cracked but binding firm, good First edition, first issue, of the poet George Wither’s translsation, the first translation into English. Wither dedicated the translation to John Selden. The Nature of Man is primarily a theological work (and it is this which interested Wither), but also, importantly, is concerned with the ‘interpretation of Greek scientific knowledge of the human body from the standpoint of Christian doctrine . According to Nemesius’ doctrine, all sensory perceptions were received in the anterior - now called lateral - ventricles of the brain . The middle or, as it is now called, third ventricle was the region of the faculty of intellect. This is the area that was responsible for controlling the "judging, approving, refuting, and assaying" of the sensory perceptions which are gathered in the lateral ventricles. The third faculty was that of memory, the storehouse of all sensory perceptions after they had been judged by the faculty of intellect . The idea of ventricular localisation of the mental faculties in the form presented by Nemesius was first attacked in 1521 by Berengario da Carpi . Vesalius delivered the coup de grace to the entire theory in 1543’ (DSB). (ESTC S113134; Pforzheimer 1085)

        Prodromus Coptus sive Aegyptiacus...cum linguae Coptae

      Woodcut vignette on title, woodcut illus. in the text, & many exotic type fonts used. 12 p.l., 338 pp. 4to, late 18th-cent. half calf & marbled boards (some browning as is usual with this book), spine gilt, black morocco lettering piece on spine. Rome: Propaganda Fide, 1636. First edition. This present work is "the first Coptic grammar to appear in the West, [it] was for centuries the basis for Coptic studies, along with Kircher's later work Lingua aegyptiaca restituta (1643). Kircher had encountered hieroglyphs during his tertianship (a one-year period of religious study in preparation for the ministry) in Speier, and he was convinced -- correctly -- that Coptic was a late vestige of ancient Egyptian. While at Avignon he was given several Coptic manuscripts by his friend and patron Nicolas Claude Fabri de Peiresc. Later in Rome Kircher acquired an Arabic-Coptic vocabulary brought from Egypt by Pietro della Valle. On the basis of these, and with Peiresc's encouragement, Kircher compiled the Prodromus. As the title reveals, it was to be a precursor of a later work on the Egyptian language, perhaps the Lingua aegyptiaca restituta. In both works he stresses the importance of Coptic for interpreting hieroglyphics. Because 'things Egyptian' were the rage in seventeenth-century Europe, the Prodromus attained immediate popularity and firmly established Kircher's reputation as a scholar... "Type fonts include Greek, Syriac, Arabic, Hebrew, Estranghelo, Samaritan, Armenian, Chaldean, Rashi, Amharic, 'Saracen,' hieroglyphic, and of course Coptic -- a tour de force of seventeenth-century typography."-Merrill, Athanasius Kircher, 3. This book is virtually a type specimen of the fonts possessed by the new established (1626) Press of the Propaganda Fide. Very good copy. Stamp on free front endpaper of the "Biblioteca Privata Pasquale Regina" and a signature on blank portion of title. Dunnhaupt notes two settings of the title-page (no priority): 1. with the insignia of the dedicatee, Francesco Barberini, and 2. a medallion of Christ and Apostles (as in our copy). ❧ Dunnhaupt, II, pp. 996-97. .

        Elementa Iurisprudentiae [Jurisprudentiae] Definitionibus, Regulis

      1636. The First English Writer on Jurisprudence Z[ouch] R[ichard] [1590-1661]. Elementa Iurisprudentiae, Definitionibus, Regulis, & Sententiis Selectioribus Iuris Civilis, Illustrata; Quibus Accessit Descriptio Iuris & Iudicii Temporalis Secundum Consuetudines Feudales & Normannicas. Nec non Descriptio Iuris & Iudicii Ecclesiastici Secundum Canones & Constitutiones Anglicanas. Oxford: Excudebat Leonardus Lichfield, 1636. [xii], 145; [7], 51; [7], 60, [2] pp. Three parts in one, each with title page and individual pagination. Quarto (7-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary limp vellum, early hand-lettered title and two early private library shelf labels to spine. Light soiling, front pastedown loose, armorial bookplate of the Earls of Macclesfield to front pastedown, small embossed stamp to head of title page. Woodcut head and tail-pieces, text printed within ruled borders. Light toning to text, minor worming to gutter in a few places. A few early doodles to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. * Second edition. One of England's greatest civilians, Zouch was an advocate of Doctors' Commons, Judge of the High Court of Admiralty and Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford. He published treatises on a broad range of legal topics, and he is best known for his contributions to international law. He is equally important as the first English writer to publish works on jurisprudence. First published in 1629, Elementa Jurisprudentiae is an ambitious general study that lays out a general theory of general principles applicable to all branches and systems of legal science. The second and third parts, Descriptio Iuris & Iudicii Temporalis Secundum Consuetudines Feudales et Normannicas and Descriptio Iuris & Iudicii Ecclesiastici Secundum Canones & Constitutiones Anglicanas, are distinct essays on topics in feudal and ecclesiastical law. Later editions of Elementa Jurisprudentiae, with different additional contents, were issued in Holland in 1652 and 1665. English Short-Title Catalogue S120616.

        Mineralogia, sive Naturalis Philosophiae Thesauri, in quibus Metallicae Concretionis medicatorúmque fossilium miracula, terrarum pretium, colorum & pigmentorum apparatus, concretorum succorum virtus, lapidum atque gemmarum dignitas continentur

      Large engraved vignette on title. Title in red & black. 8 p.l., 626, [69] pp. Folio, cont. blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards, arms on covers effaced. Lyon: J. & P. Prost, 1636. First edition, Schuh's issue B (no stated priority) with the dedication to Charles de Neufville. "Very scarce. Compendium of all the author ever discovered or read about the subject of mineralogy. It was published posthumously from notes he left by his Order at Lyon six years after his death. Printed in a double column format in a relatively small type-size, the work is a vast storehouse of all things mineralogical, including new ideas, restatements of earlier authors, observations and superstitious belief. The uncritical selection of material led Webster in his Metallographia (London, 1671, p. 29) to criticize the author as too digressive and as mixing tares with the wheat. Partington thinks the use of the term 'Mineralogia' in the title is the first modern usage of the word... "The work opens by listing the evils and benefits of mineralogy. Mining is considered dangerous because of the lurking underground spirits...the author notes that the study of mineralogy helps one to understand the bible. It provides medicines and money, ornaments for religious purposes, tools used in agriculture, industry, painting, music and alchemy. Cesi then answers the question he posed earlier and declares mineralogy to be a true philosophy, worthy of careful study... "The numerous citations to earlier authors provide evidence of Cesi's wide reading. Commonly, many authors are referenced on single points. For example, in describing the generation of minerals he closely follows Aristotle but also cites Theophrastus, Avicenna, Albertus Magnus, Agricola, Gregorius Reisch, Pliny, Boodt, Francis Rueus, Marbode, the Bible, and numerous church fathers. The author is uncritical of the views he presents, and accepts the authority of the ancient and medieval authors as his own. He believes that the Sun, Moon and stars influence the subterranean world of minerals and metals, and that gems have miraculous curative powers. He includes a chapter on the magnet... "Cesi divides his work into five sections: the first treats mineralogy proper, the second the economic and commercial aspects, for example colors and pigments, the third, lapidifying juices of the earth that congeal into minerals, the fourth gems and the fifth metals. At the conclusion is a long and thankfully comprehensive index. Much insight about ancient philosophy and its affect in the 17th century can be gained from studying Cesi's Mineralogia."-Schuh, Mineralogy & Crystallography: A Biobibliography, 1469 to 1920, pp. 358-59. Cesi (1581-1630), was a Jesuit professor at Modena and Parma. A nice copy of a book which is now scarce on the market. ❧ Hoover 214. Partington, II, p. 94. Schuh 1113. Sinkankas 1221-(who, inaccurately, calls this issue a reprint. Sinkankas knew mineralogy very well but nothing about bibliography). Thorndike, VII, pp. 254-57. .

        Traduccion latina que ha hecho el Doctor Señonqui en Lengua Castellana, de un tratado que compuso en Latina Guillermo Vandevoy. E. C. D. D.

      Impressa en Valanson (Madrid?), por Jacome Corifio, 1636. - in-4. 99ff. (dont 98 numérotés). (1f.blanc). Plein vélin souple de l'époque. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage curieux de Juan de Quiñones, magistrat madrilène de la cour de Philippe IV. Ce violent réquisitoire contre les Français est présenté sous la forme d'un traité historique qui disserte sur les mœurs françaises, les relations de l'Espagne et de la France depuis le 14e siècle, ainsi que sur la supposée alliance des Français avec les Turcs pendant le siècle d'or. C'est un livre obscur à plusieurs égards. D'une part, le lieu d'impression et le nom de l'imprimeur ne sont répertoriés nulle part et paraissent avoir été inventés. D'autre part, certaines sources attribuent l'ouvrage au médecin hollandais Guillaume Van Den Bossche, mais cette hypothèse semble être erronée et le nom de Vandevoy indiqué au titre paraît n'être qu'une fantaisie. L'ouvrage contient deux curieuses gravures à l'eau forte de Francisco Navarro, graveur espagnol au sujet duquel Bénézit indique qu'on connaît de lui "des planches d'armoiries parues en 1632 à Madrid et le titre pour un ouvrage militaire publié en 1642. Il a également gravé des titres pour divers ouvrages d'architecture et des portraits d'Horace, Perse et Juvénal". Juan de Quiñones a laissé plusieurs ouvrages remarquables, tous écrits en espagnol, parmi lesquels un traité sur les sauterelles (1620), un discours contre les gitans (1631), une relation des éruptions du Vésuve (1632) et un curieux traité de minéralogie sur le charbon (1634). Le présent volume est une véritable rareté. Nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'un seul exemplaire dans les collections américaines (à l'Hispanic Society of America de New York, cf. N.U.C.) et seulement deux exemplaires dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (Biblioteca Nacional et Biblioteca de Oviedo). Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 245389.

Pagination checks confirm that it is the 1636 rather than the 1633 version. Gerard (1545-1611/12) superintended Lord Burlegh's gardens and had access to a wide variety of plant specimens, although, according to some sources, he was accused of plagiarising an earlier work by Dodoens. The book, greatly improved by Johnson's revisions, was actively used as a reference work up to and including the 19th century. In contemporary half leather binding with marbled boards. With part of the title page and a bookplate of Harry Arnold, Arnbarrow, pasted inside the front board. Complete apart from the title page and all but the first page of the english index - the remainder is supplied separately in facsimile. The latin index is complete but misbound. There are numerous mispaginations (common to this edition). With numerous plant engravings and decorative head and tailpieces and initial capitals. The binding is sound, but is worn to all surfaces and the spine has been relaid at some point. That repair is worn. Internally there is some browning to page edges and some nibbling and loss of page edges initially (principally the initial dedication pages) - particular at the bottom outer corners. The first few leaves have a tape repair along the gutter. The remainder is generally very clean and in good to very good condition. A page tear has been repaired at page 977.

        The Navigator

      Lon., 1636.. b/w wood engravings and volvelle. First edition of a rare navigational text. Saltonstall was a captain in the West Indies trade and a teacher of mathematics at Tower Hill. This copy has the engraved title-page, but lacks the printed title page and portrait, as well as D2 (this page contained illustrations to be cut out and attached to the volvelle on D3, which is complete and in place. So, in a sense D2 is “there.” It has simply been put to its intended use.) STC 21640. A&W 3100. Complete textually. The engraved volvelle with two dials is immaculate and in perfect working order.

(Some marginal discoloration throughout, marginal staining to first and last few leaves and plates, fore-margins of frontispiece and title a bit browned and frayed, fore-edge of frontispiece archivally strengthened; plate 36 with repaired tear and two small marginal paper repairs, plate nos. of pl. 36 and 41 cropped.) Modern quarter calf and marbled boards. 18th-century signature of Joannes Bogaert(?) on title. Only edition of a splendid and rare festival book, printed in only one hundred and fifty copies, commemorating the entry into Ghent of the Cardinal-Infante Ferdinand, in celebration of his recent military victories and appointment, by his brother Philip IV of Spain, to the Governorship of the Spanish Netherlands. Ferdinand arrived at Ghent on 28 January 1635. The engravings show the entry processions with vistas of the town, scenes from theatrical performances, allegorical floats (including two floats of fantastical large sea creatures, symbolizing the governor's intended conquest of the seas), fireworks, trophies, and several densely sculpted triumphal arches depicting the achievements of the Habsburgs. A large folding bird's-eye view illustrates Ferdinand's victorious battle against the Protestant Swedes at Nördlingen in September 1634. Rubens, who was court painter to Ferdinand from 1636 to 1640, designed the printer's mark, of which the original ink drawing is in the Plantin Museum in Antwerp. This copy has been extra-illustrated with a copy of Blaeu's city-plan of Ghent. Brunet I, 728; Lipperheide 2663; Landwehr, Splendid Ceremonies 96; Nagler III, 190; Vinet 626.

        Traduccion latina que ha hecho el Doctor Señonqui en Lengua Castellana, de un tratado que compuso en Latina Guillermo Vandevoy. E. C. D. D.

      Impressa en Valanson (Madrid?), por Jacome Corifio, 1636. - in-4. 99ff. (dont 98 numérotés). (1f.blanc). Plein vélin souple de l'époque. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage curieux de Juan de Quiñones, magistrat madrilène de la cour de Philippe IV. Ce violent réquisitoire contre les Français est présenté sous la forme d'un traité historique qui disserte sur les mœurs françaises, les relations de l'Espagne et de la France depuis le 14e siècle, ainsi que sur la supposée alliance des Français avec les Turcs pendant le siècle d'or. C'est un livre obscur à plusieurs égards. D'une part, le lieu d'impression et le nom de l'imprimeur ne sont répertoriés nulle part et paraissent avoir été inventés. D'autre part, certaines sources attribuent l'ouvrage au médecin hollandais Guillaume Van Den Bossche, mais cette hypothèse semble être erronée et le nom de Vandevoy indiqué au titre paraît n'être qu'une fantaisie. L'ouvrage contient deux curieuses gravures à l'eau forte de Francisco Navarro, graveur espagnol au sujet duquel Bénézit indique qu'on connaît de lui "des planches d'armoiries parues en 1632 à Madrid et le titre pour un ouvrage militaire publié en 1642. Il a également gravé des titres pour divers ouvrages d'architecture et des portraits d'Horace, Perse et Juvénal". Juan de Quiñones a laissé plusieurs ouvrages remarquables, tous écrits en espagnol, parmi lesquels un traité sur les sauterelles (1620), un discours contre les gitans (1631), une relation des éruptions du Vésuve (1632) et un curieux traité de minéralogie sur le charbon (1634). Le présent volume est une véritable rareté. Nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'un seul exemplaire dans les collections américaines (à l'Hispanic Society of America de New York, cf. N.U.C.) et seulement deux exemplaires dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (Biblioteca Nacional et Biblioteca de Oviedo). Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 245389.

        BARCLAY HIS ARGENIS. OR, THE LOVE OF POLYARCHUS & ARGENIS. FAITHFULLY TRANSLATED OUT OF LATIN INTO ENGLISH ... TOGETHER WITH A KEY PRÆFIXED TO UNLOCK THE WHOLE STORY

      London: Printed for Henry Seile, 1636.. [36],719,[1]pp. Large octavo.. Full modern calf to contemporary style, spine heavily gilt extra, gilt label, a.e.g. Engraved title, woodcut head and tail-pieces, and 24 full-page engravings, including a portrait, by Leonard Gaultier and Claude Mellon. Top margin of title shaved just slightly touching the plate mark, blank upper fore-corner of 2F5 torn away, two short marginal tears with obvious mends, terminal leaf creased, with mend at toe of blank verso along with some early ink scribbles, occasional tanning, minor discolorations, and inky finger smears, a few instances of early marginal annotations or underscores, early ink ownership signature of "Anne Duckett," with another obscured in a top margin by an early overlay; still, a good copy in an attractive period pastiche binding. With a 19th century bookplate, and considerable neatly penned learned comments on the retained earlier binder's blanks. First illustrated edition of this translation by Kingsmill Long, first published in 1625 under Seile's imprint. Although this edition is denoted the "Second Edition, Beautified with Pictures," there were prior reprinting/editions in 1628 and 1629. Barclay's prose romance was first printed in Paris, in Latin, in 1621, shortly after the author's death under suspicious circumstances. It "has been admired by Richelieu, Leibnitz, Jonson, Grotius, Pope, Cowper, Disraeli, and Coleridge ... To it were indebted, in whole or in part, Fénelon's 'Telemaque,' du Ryer's tragi- comedy 'Argenis et Poliarque,' Calderon's 'Argenis y Poliarco,' an Italian play 'Argenide,' by de Cruylles, and a German play by Christian Weysen, 1684. The 'Argenis' was soon translated into French, Spanish, and German ... There have been [subsequent] translations into Italian, Dutch, Greek, Hungarian, Polish, Swedish, and Icelandic" - CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA. ESTC S100846. STC 1395.

        MACHIAVELS DISCOVRSES UPON THE FIRST DECADE OF T. LIVIUS

      London: Printed by Thomas Paine for William Hills and Daniel Pakeman, 1636. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Hardcover. 152 x 89 mm (6 x 3 1/2"). 22 p.l., 646 pp. (complete, with B1 cancelled and not replaced, as usual). Translated "with some marginall animadversions noting and taxing . . . errours" by E[dward] D[acres]. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Contemporary polished calf, covers framed by one gilt and four blind rules, flat spine divided into panels by decorative gilt rolls, all edges gilt. In a custom-made gilt-titled folding cloth box. Woodcut borders on imprimatur page, woodcut initials. Front pastedown with modern bookplate of R. L. U.; recto of front blank with light pencilled inscription of Charles Grace (dated 14 August 1839); verso of front blank with contemporary ownership inscription of Nathaniell Lavender. STC 17160; Bertelli & Innocenti XVII, 35. Front joints with one-inch crack at head and tail, half-inch shallow chip at head of spine, diagonal crack in leather from near the head of rear joint across backstrip to near tail of front joint (repaired, but with small hole still visible), leather crackled on spine and a little rubbed at extremities, but the original binding completely solid despite its flaws and appealing as an unlikely survival. Inner margin with very minor worming throughout (just barely touching text on four leaves), otherwise only trivial imperfections--AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY INTERNALLY, the text very clean, fresh, and smooth. This is a pleasing contemporary copy of the first printing in English of Machiavelli's "Discorsi," as influential a work in political science as the much more famous "The Prince," which it anticipates. In our work, the author "discusses the foundation, organization, and expansion of the state. For him the foundation and establishment of a state is properly the work of an elected prince, not an hereditary one, who, working rigorously for the common good, seeks sole power in order to establish a principality or a republic. Once it is organized, he shares with many men the responsibility for its maintenance." (Kunitz & Colby) In his "Discourses," Machiavelli uses his own experience in Italian politics as well as Livy's account of the period of the seven kings and the first centuries of the Republic as a basis for his manual of political do's and don'ts. The book was begun before "The Prince," but completed after the author had interrupted his work on it at a crucial period in Florentine history to issue the latter celebrated work, which is a succinct and powerful statement of the ideas evolved in the "Discorsi." Macchiavelli's utilitarianism gave him the reputation of being the devil's advocate in England (as is suggested by comments in More's "Utopia") even before his works had been translated. Dacres followed his translation of the "Discorsi" with "The Prince," and in later 17th century editions, the two works were normally issued together. Although the present copy has some external blemishes, we have decided to leave it alone, since copies in unrestored original bindings are growing extremely scarce (there seem to be no other such copies currently on the market).

No portrait. A very few leaves with old ink spots, otherwise pages clean. Bound in full brown calf, which is cracked on surface of boards and worn at extremities. Rebacked to style. ESTCS122127. The year 1605 produced another volume of material gathered from Camden's and Robert Cotton's libraries, the Remaines of a Greater Worke Concerning Britain. Camden did not put his name to it, identifying himself only by the final letter of each name, as M. N., but he dedicated it to Robert Cotton, suggesting his own ambivalence about a book that consisted of (as he wrote in the Epistle Dedicatorie) 'the rude rubble and out-cast rubbish' of a greater and more serious worke." If the Remaines is an ungainly, seemingly shapeless collection, it is also frequently witty and wise, and richly varied. Bringing together Camden's interest in literature and language, and social and cultural history, including both popular and high culture, the Remaines contains a wealth of material. Moreover, as a collection it reflects the unusual moment in the emergence of early modern Britain when the artefacts of the vernacular culture were coming to be valued in new ways. With the first historically organized anthology of medieval poetry, a historical and comparative study of the English language, collections of names and their meanings, of (in the words of one of the chapter headings) 'grave speeches, and wittie apothogemes,' and of epitaphs, it can be seen as a popular spin-off from its more expensive and serious historical mother lode, the Britannia. With two additional, enlarged editions in his own lifetime, seven throughout the seventeenth century, and several reprints thereafter, the Remaines remained a popular and useful work." Oxford DNB.

Danielem Schwenterum

      Nuremberg: Jeremiae Dumseis, 1636. First edition of this early collection of mathematical puzzles, games and inventions, several of which are illustrated on the title page in small vignettes. The sixteen sections cover a wide range of subjects, from mathematics to optics and hydraulics. Leibniz read a copy of the book in his student days, his study of its many combinatorial problems leading to his first mathematical publication, the <i>Ars combinatoria</i> (1666), which formed the mathematical basis for his proposed &#145;calculus of thought&#146;.<br/><br/>& As well as numerous problems in &#145;recreational&#146; mathematics, Schwenter&#146;s book describes several significant inventions. Perhaps the most notable of these is a fountain pen, which was made from two quills, one of which served as a reservoir for ink inside the other quill. The ink was sealed inside the quill with cork, and ink was squeezed through a small hole to the writing point. Although Schwenter did not invent the fountain pen, his is the first illustration of a working fountain pen in a printed work. <br/><br/>& One original invention of Schwenter described in this book is the &#145;scioptric ball&#146;. This is a universal joint that allows a microscope, mounted on the ball, to be swivelled into any position. Its invention was inspired by Schwenter&#39;s studies of the human eye. The scioptric ball provided a firm anchor for a microscope or telescope while allowing the telescope to be swivelled in all directions in order to follow the course of an eclipse or for drawing panoramic views. It was in some ways the first wide-angle lens. <br/><br/>& & Schwenter&#146;s Deliciae is sometimes described as a translation of Van Etten & Leurechon&#146;s Récréations Mathématiques (first published in 1624), but Singmaster has pointed out that this is &#145;quite wrong&#146;. Schwenter does indeed consider some of the problems in Leurechon&#146;s book (these are identified as &#147;aus dem Frankosen&#148;), but many of the problems in Deliciae were collected by Schwenter himself. The book proved extremely popular, and was expanded to three volumes by Georg Philip Harsdörffer (1651-53). This was for many years the most comprehensive work on the subject, and was reprinted in 1677 and 1692. <br/><br/>& & Professor of oriental languages and mathematics at the University of Altdorf, Daniel Schwenter was born at Nuremberg in 1595 and died on 19 January 1636, a few months before the publication of this, his second book. He was also the author of <i>Geometriae practicae novae</i>, which appeared in four parts from 1616 to 1627. <br/><br/>& & David Singmaster, Sources in Recreational Mathematics: An Annotated Bibliography & (www.gotham corp.com/sources.htm) contains descriptions of several of the mathematical problems considered by Schwenter.& Small 4to: 189 x 151 mm. Pp. [xii], 574, [2]. Contemporary vellum over boards. Engraved titlepage, numerous illustrations and diagrams in the text. Some browning throughout, in all a very good copy.

        Epitaffio di Jacques Callot

      Acquaforte e bulino, 1636, firmato in lastra in basso. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata all?interno del rame ma completa della parte incisa, restauri nella parte bianca superiore, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Eseguito l?anno successivo alla morte del Callot, questo ritratto post-mortem fu probabilmente commissionato al Bosse dall?editore Israel Henriet. Il volto del Callot deriva dal ritratto di Michel Lasne, del 1629. Opera molto rara.Bibliografia: Abraham Bosse savant graveur, p. 172, 142. Dimensioni 134x245 Etching and engraving, 1636. signed and dated on lower part. Magnificent work, rich in shades, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed inside the platemark but with the entire engraved part, minor repairs on the upper part, otherwise in good condition. This plate has been realized one year after the death of Callot; the post-mortem portrait has been very likely commissioned by Israel Henriet, the publisher. The face of Callot recalls the portrait of Michel Lasne, realized in 1629. A very rare work. Abraham Bosse savant graveur, p. 172, 142. Dimensioni 134x245.
