        Bormio e sue cinque valli, Livigno, Furva, Val di Dentro, Val di Sotto, e Valle di San Giacomo in Frele

      1637. Si tratta di una carta autonoma nel ricco panorama cartografico valtellinese del XVII secolo. Pur trattandosi di un'incisione in rame all'acquaforte, quindi replicata, conserva in sé un particolare che le conferisce unicità rispetto agli altri esemplari che è stato possibile fin qui studiare. Questo particolare rappresenta la chiave di volta nell'interpretazione della stessa e ne esprime in modo univoco il motivo d'essere. La carta si presenta circondata da una cornice ornamentale inframezzata da motivi decorativi a volute. All'interno della cornice, oltre all'attenta raffigurazione cartografica, affascina l'utilizzo e la ricchezza degli elementi simbolici. Si prenda ad esempio la composizione che occupa l'angolo in alto a sinistra: su di un nastro teso tra una sfera armillare ed un globo, si legge "Initium Sapientiae", mentre in basso tra i due putti alati "Ubi initium Ibi finis". Tra questi elementi decorativi, due figure allegoriche: l'una la Giustizia divina e l'altra la Giustizia umana, tra le quali risplende un cerchio raggiante con iscritto un triangolo equilatero con occhio aperto simboleggiante Dio Padre, che fu introdotto in seguito alla Controriforma. Attenta la rappresentazione geografica del territorio, infatti si notano: città, fortificazioni, caseggiati isolati, pozzi. Particolare ed allo stesso tempo innovativa, rispetto ad altre carte coeve, l'utilizzo di differenti simboli per distinguere le varie colture. L'orografia è resa con coni di talpa ammassati ed ampi fondo valle. Ben evidenziati i confini: Confinia Mediolanensia, Confinia Veneta, Confinia Tridentina, Confinia Tirolensia e Confinia Rhetica. Proprio per quanto riguarda il disegno cartografico risulta interessante l'utilizzo di due differenti scale grafiche: l'una dedicata alla Valtellina "Milliaria Ital. Pro Valtellina" mentre l'altra per il contado di Bormio "Milliaria Ital. Pro Comitatus Bormij." L'utilizzo di una scala grafica maggiore, per il Contado di Bormio, fa si che questo venga messo in risalto rispetto al restante territorio lasciando ipotizzare che ciò fosse stato fatto per sottolineare l'importanza del territorio di Bormio. E' a questo punto che diviene determinante il particolare di cui sopra si è accennato. Infatti in nessun altro esemplare studiato è stato ritrovato il foglietto coevo, stampato con caratteri mobili e qui applicato con ceralacca rossa, che spiega il perché di questa differenza, vi si legge: "Una torretta detta la Serra divide il Contado di Bormio dalla Valtellina, che in questa Carta ha la scala delle miglia diversa da quella di Bormio, ove è diverso lo statuto, li diritti, gli usi, ed i privilegi.". Questo foglietto oltre a spiegare la carta e dare una breve descrizione "Il Clima è freddo, l'aria salubre, li pascoli, il mele, le acque eccellenti; ve ne sono anche delle minerali calde-sulfuree, e fredde-acidule, che dinotano la quantità e qualità delle miniere...", per la prima volta conferisce un titolo, di cui questa era priva, "Bormio e sue cinque valli cioè Livigno, Furva, Val di Dentro, Val di Sotto, e Valle di San Giacomo in Frele". Il nostro esemplare, rispetto ad esempio a quello conservato a Sondrio nella Collezione del Credito Valtellinese, non presenta gli elementi araldici in quanto questi sono stati coperti in fase di stampa. Ottima la conservazione ed impressione, unico esemplare ad oggi conosciuto nelle condizioni sopra descritte. Estremamente rara. Bibliografia: Arrigoni Bertarelli 1930, p. 147, n. 1339; Guido Scaramellini 1978, p. 170; Oscar Sceffer 2006, n. 34; Silvia Bianchi 2007. p. 174-75, n. 72

A Very Good copy of an IMPORTANT AND HIGHLY-NOTABLE BOOK on Geography. The second Hodinus Press [Amaterdam] edition of a work first published in 1624 [Germany]. Per Wikipedia:Philipp Clüver (also Klüwer, Cluwer, or Cluvier, Latinized as Philippus Cluverius and Philippi Cluverii) (1580 – 31 December 1622) was an Early Modern German geographer and historian.Per Wythepedia:Clüver was born in Danzig (Gda sk), in Royal Prussia, a province of the Kingdom of Poland. After spending some time at the Polish court of Sigismund III Vasa, he began the study of law at the University of Leiden (Dutch Republic), but soon he turned his attention to history and geography, which were then taught there by Joseph Scaliger. His life's project, it developed, was a general study of the geography of Antiquity, based not only on classical literary sources, but — and this was his contribution — supplemented by wide travels and local inspections. He became virtually the founder of historical geography.While we have not determined which edition and printing, Wythepedia shows that a copy of the book was bequeathed by George Wythe to Thomas Jefferson which copy Thomas Jefferson then gave to his oldest grandson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph.

        A true journal of the Sally Fleet, with the proceedings of the voyage.

      London John Dawson for Thomas Nicholes 1637 - First edition. Small 4to (17 x 13cm.), [iv], 26, [xviii] pp., folding engraved map, disbound, brown cloth chemise and morocco-backed cloth slipcase, cut close at head of page occasionally affecting headline, map restored at inner margin, withal a very good copy. From the beginning of the sixteenth century, European commerce in the Mediterranean had been bedevilled by the plundering and slave hunting of the Barbary pirates, acting out of Algiers, their principal base, and the coastal towns of morocco. Amongst these the most notorious were the pirates of Salli. In 1635 Dunton was forced to act as pilot in a Moorish pirate ship ("Sally man of warre") which was intending to take captives off the English coast. She made for the Isle of Wight, where she was captured and Dunton released. In January 1636 a fleet of 8 warships was sent on the orders of King Charles I on a punitive expedition to Salli - the author being one of the mariners. The present work comprises a detailed history of their voyage, the successful attack on Salli and the liberation of sever hundred Christian captives. The engraved chart provides a plan of the engagement. Of particular interest are descriptions of the participating vessels (names, tonnage, complement, number of guns, etc) and the list of names of the redeemed captives which identifies the home towns of each in the British Isles. Thus we are provided with remarkable information on the geographic make-up of the British merchant fleet in the first half of the seventeenth century. Atabey 379; STC 7357.

        A speech delivered in the Starre-Chamber, on Wednesday, the XIVth of Iune, MDCXXXVII. : at the censure of Iohn Bastwick, Henry Burton, and William Prinn; concerning pretended innovations in the Church.

      London: Richard Badger 1637 - First Edition, second issue with "house" on page 77. [15 (of 16)], 77 pages, lacking initial and final blanks. Modern quarter leather over brown cloth. Grolier Club Library bookplate. Later pen numbering to corners, expunging original numbering in ink. Dampstained throughout. Soiling and gray marks to p. 71. This Star Chamber address was in response to Puritan pamphlets published in 1637 by John Bastwick, Henry Burton and William Prynne. The pamphlets attacked episcopacy and the supposed innovations to religion brought in by Laud and other bishops. The Speech refutes many of the charges of the pamphleteers, and is largely a speech for the prosecution. The central portion is a justification of Laud's policy of placing the Altar back into its traditional position in church, and the superiority of the Eucharist over the sermon. William Laud, Archbishop of Canterbury during Charles I rule, argued that the Church of England needed uniformity. He covertly favored Roman Catholic doctrines and hierarchy. Autocratic and a zealous enforcer of his beliefs, Laud traveled the country promoting his supporters, sacking Puritans and ordering the prosecution and mutilation of opponents. This resurgence of Catholic sympathies caused a rift within the country. Already imprisoned for his publication of Histriomastix in 1633, William Prynne was tried again in 1637 for the anonymous attack on Bishop Matthew Wren. Bastwick and Burton were concurrently tried before the Star Chamber for other seditious sermons and publications. The puritan martyrs were fined £ 5,000, ordered that their ears be cut off, and imprisoned for life. Prynne additionally, was branded on the cheeks with the letters S. L., signifying "seditious libeller". For this sentence Laud thanked the court. An interesting publication showing the religious disputes that eventually led to the political disintegration of Charles rule. Refs: STC 15307. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Scapula, John, the reputed author of a Greek Lexicon, [..] has his name recorded in the annals of literature, neither on account of his talents and learning, nor for his virtuous industry, but for a gross act of disingenuity and fraud which he committed against an eminent literary character of the sixteenth century. Being employed by Henry Stephen's,[Henri Estienne] the celebrated printer, as a corrector to his press, while he was publishing his "Thesaurus Linguæ Græcæ," Scapula extracted those words and explications which he reckoned most useful, comprised them in one volume, and published them as an original work, with his own name. The compilation and printing of the Thesaurus had cost Stephen's immense labour and expense; but it was so much admired by the learned men to whom he had shown it, and seemed to be of such essential importance to the acquisition of the Greek language, that he reasonably hoped his labour would be crowned with honour, and that the money he had expended would be repaid by a rapid and extensive sale. Before, however, his work came abroad, Scapula's abridgment appeared; which, from its size, price, and obvious utility, was quickly purchased, while the Thesaurus itself lay neglected in the author's hands. The consequence was a bankruptcy on the part of Stephen's, while he who had occasioned it was enjoying the fruits of his treachery. Scapula's Lexicon was first published in 15--, in 4to. It was afterward enlarged, and published in folio.[...] Stephen's charges the author with omitting a great many important articles, and with misunderstanding and perverting his meaning, and tracing out absurd and trifling etymologies, which he himself had been careful to avoid. Dr. Busby, so much celebrated for his knowledge of the Greek language, and his success in teaching it, would never permit his scholars in Westminster-school to make use of Scapula.[ 1 Clark's Bibliog. Dict. vol. IV.*-Balllet Jugemens.Morhoff Poly hist.] Whether it is true that Scapula plagiarized Estienne's great work as the latter claimed cannot be proved, as Craik mentions the Lexicon in fact appeared in 1579, some years after Estienne's great scholarly work published in 1572, nevertheless it undoubtedly had an impact on the sales of the earlier work, and could have helped in the demise of Estienne's business. Craik does not condemn the author as had those in the past and considers the work as a performance of considerable ability.[.....] it has ever since its appearance ranked as one of the most valuable auxileries to which recourse can be had in the study of Greek and has without doubt contributed essentially to the diffusion of a knowledge of that language - a circumstance which makes one learned writer observe that scapula has done as least as much service to scholars in general as he did injury to his master.

        Arabic title] Kitab al-Jarrumiyah wa-Mi'at al-'amil. Grammatica Arabica dicta Gjarumia, et Libellus Centum regentium, cum versione Latina, & commentariis Thomae Erpenii. [Bound after:] FABRICIUS, Johann. Specimen Arabicum [ ]

      Leiden: Erpenius, [and] Rostock: Hallervord, 1617 & 1637 - 2 works in one volume, quarto (179 x 133 mm). 18th-century French cat's-paw calf, expertly rebacked to style, two-line blind frames to sides, red edges, marbled endpapers, bound green silk page-marker; the Kitab al-Jarrumiyah reading back to front. Several passages in the Specimen asterisked in the margins in a contemporary hand; frequent lightly pencilled marginalia in French and Arabic to both texts, late-18th or early-19th century. Variable mild spotting and browning, a few small ink-spots and other marks. Kitab al-Jarrumiyah: narrow worm-track to lower outer corners from title to sig. C2, occasionally reappearing but the text never affected, sig. S3 present in uncancelled state (lacking a line of Arabic text recto), the corrected cancel bound in between R4 and S1. Specimen Arabicum: minor paper disruption in gutter ff. 1-3 with loss of half a letter in f. 1 r., small worm-tracks to gutter from title to sig. F4, occasionally reappearing, and to upper margin sigs. A1-4, the text never affected, old restoration to lower outer corners of F3 and R4 (to partial loss of catchwords), lower inner corners of T1 & T4, and Z1 upper outer (to loss of pagination in the latter), extensive tear to S4 sometime repaired, the paper slightly misaligned and the text partially obscured but still easily guessed, small spill-burn to Cc2 obscuring a couple of letters recto. These flaws unobtrusive overall; a good copy that presents well. Engraved title page to the Kitab al-Jarrumiyah; woodcut initial figures and head-pieces. First editions of these two landmark studies of the Arabic language. The personal copies of Pierre Dippy (1622-1709), Maronite dragoman to King Louis XIV of France and chair of Arabic and Syriac at the Collège Royal in Paris from 1667 to his death, the title pages inscribed "Ex libris Pierre Dippy" in a contemporary hand (the name ineffectually struck out), the title of the Kitab additionally inscribed "1654"; both title pages are also inscribed in Arabic, "this is the book of Butrus ibn Diyab al-Halabi [Dippy's Arabic name], dragoman to the King of France, may God have mercy on him", the Specimen further inscribed "and whoever reads this this line, 1673". The Arabic formula "may God have mercy on him" is invariably used only of the dead, and the hand appears to be that of a native, so the inscription was likely added at a later date, perhaps by Dippy's nephew and protégé, also Pierre, who tried to succeed him in the Arabic chair at the Collège, but was outmanoeuvred by Antoine Galland. There are also inked Arabic marginalia to page 13 of the Specimen, and to pages 12, 19, 25 and 115 of the Kitab al-Jarrumiyah, correcting or adding to the printed text in a fluent contemporary hand; the annotation on page 12 of the Kitab is closely trimmed, suggesting that the marginalia predate the 18th-century binding, and are likely to be Dippy's or an Arabist peer's. The second-bound text, the Kitab al-Jarrumiyah, is the first Arabic grammar published in the Netherlands. The work of great orientalist Thomas Erpenius (1584-1624), the first professor of Arabic at Leiden, it comprises his Latin commentary on the Ajurrumiyah, a highly influential medieval Arabic grammar by Moroccan scholar Ibn Ajurrum (d. 1327), together with the second edition of the original Arabic, and the first edition in the original Arabic of another text, the Mi'at 'amil ("Hundred Rules") of 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jurjani (d. 1078), one of the texts which established Arabic grammar (nahw) as a discipline during the emergence of the madrasah. The Ajurrumiyah is "the most widely used primer in the whole history of Arabic Grammar" (Meri, ed., Medieval Islamic Civilization: An Encyclopaedia, p. 300), and inspired countless epitomes and commentaries, of which Erpenius's edition was especially important: the first edition, published at Rome in 1592, was printed entirely in Arabic so "was by no means easily accessible to European scholars unfamiliar with Arabic linguistic terminology [Attributes: First Edition]

Il publia la chronique avec ses observations mais on s'aperçut vite de l'imposture, et l'affaire fit grand bruit.

      Florence: Amadore Massi and Lorenzo Landi, 1637. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Two parts in one volume, 4to (236 x 172 mm). Etched title and seven double-page plates by Stefano della Bella after the set designs of Alfonso Parigi. 19th-century half roan, decorated paper boards. Some minor spotting, generally a fine copy. Provenance: purchased from George Staack, 1962. FIRST EDITION of the libretto for the masque celebrating the wedding of Vulcan to Venus. This series of etchings by Stefano della Bella was his first major undertaking for the Medici court, after he succeeded Jacques Callot. It is also the only surviving record of Alfonso Parigi's remarkable designs for the staging of Coppola's opera with choreography by Agniolo Ricci. Coppola, Bishop of Muro, was commissioned to commemorate the marriage of Grand Duke Ferdinando II de' Medici (1610-1670) to Princess Vittoria della Rovere of Urbino (1622-1694) on 8 July 1637. It was the last opera to be held in the Medici court theatres. According to Rondinelli's contemporary description (Relazione delle nozze degli dei), the libretto was set to music by the five principal composers of Florence, who employed counterpoint and entrancing arias, fitted to the beauty of the story. The composers are unnamed, but evidently included Marco da Gagliano and Francesca Caccini (and, according to The New Grove, Jacopo Peri). The music was organized by the poet and composer Ferdinando Saracinelli, a collaborator with Domenico Mazzocchi, who may also have contributed to the music.

        Caracteres des Passions

      Paris: Jacques-François Chereau, early 18th century. The complete set of 20 engravings including title by Sebastien Le Clerc, the Elder (1637-1714), plates 75 x 155 mm, sheets 110 x 190 mm. Good impressions, with margins. Contemporary sprinkled calf, spine gilt. Front hinge repaired. Provenance: purchased from Librairie De Nobele, 1982. Le Brun based his 1688 lecture "Conférence sur l'expression générale et particulière" on René Descartes' theory of the passions (1649), seeking to present a coherent theory of expression. Its influence was vast, published in sixty-three editions and opened art to psycho-physiological interpretation. "Rather than picturing the body as a static image, Le Brun mobilized it by showing how the motion of emotions is written" (Giuliana Bruno, Atlas of Emotions: Journeys in Art, Architecture, and Film, New York, 2002, p. 141). Bound with four other suites of figural studies: Divers Dessins de Figures, 22 engravings including title, ten plates by Stefano Della Bella, (De Vesme 300-303, 305-6, 315, 317-8, 354) - Divers Desseins de Figures et de Paysages pour apprendre a dessiner a la plume, 19 engravings including title by Le Clerc - Varie Figure (L. 201-213, 403-405) by Jacques Callot, 17 etchings including title (final states) - Veues de plusiers petits endroits des Faubourgs de Paris, 32 engraved plates including title, by Le Clerc and others. All suites but the one by Callot published by Chereau. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

        Vulterra Nova Descriptio

      Firenze 1637 - "Veduta a volo d'uccello di Volterra di Domenicus Vadorinius (it. Vadorini) edita per la prima volta nel 1560, e poi ristampata nel 1637 come una delle tre mappe dell'opera di Curzio Inghirami "Ethruscarum antiquitatum fragmenta " edita probabilmente a Firenze (il luogo di stampa riportato sul frontespizio, Francofurti, è falso). L'opera è un trattato di antichità etrusche basato su di un documento apocrifo (la cosiddetta " Cronaca etrusca di Prosperus Fesulanus " ) in seguito smentito d a Leone Allacci (Animadversiones in antiquitatum etruscarum fragmenta, 1642) La mappa è orientata con il Nord a destra, in basso una legenda di 73 voci. Lungo il margine superiore corre il verso latino "Tantum aevi longinqua valet mutare vetustas" (Virgilio, Aen. 3, 415), ovvero Tanto il tempo può cambiare le cose. Incisione su rame, qualche piccolo restauro lungo le pieghe di carta perfettamente eseguito, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione." Dimensioni 521 401mm
