        Alle de werken van P. Ovidius Naso vertaalt door Abraham Valentijn. Met privilegie van de Edele Groot Mogende Heeren Staten van Holland en West-Vriesland. Amsterdam, Pieter Mortier, 1697.

      Contemporary parchment binding. 150 x 90 mm, 12º: (dl 1:) pi2 *6 (-*4) A-K#12 L#8, [14] 256 pp.; (dl 2:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 382 pp.; (dl 3:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 338 [44] pp. Three identical engraved title pages with a circular portrait engraving. Part II has 15 etchings by C[oenraad] Decker. Little foxing, good copy. Prose translation (prozavertaling) of the complete works of Ovid (and more, because some poems are now known not to be Ovid's). The works are arranged in the usual chronological order: first the heroines letters (Heldinnenbrieven) and erotic poetry (erotische poezie), then the metamorphoses, illustrated with 15 engravings by C Decker and in part III the incomplete calendar (only six of the 12 months) and mourning songs and letters from the Black Sea. These last two titles were written by Ovid while he was in exile. The translator, Abraham Valentijn (1640 – after 1697) was preceptor and rector at the Latin School in Dordrecht and from 1681 also the librarian for the Dordrecht city library. In his dedication to Mayor Adriaan van Blyenborch, he blames previous Ovid translators that they had not studied Greek historians and poets enough, thus “op tallijke blinde klippen gestooten sijn” (which means that they had a lot of difficulties translating). The 15 prints by Decker for the first edition of Valentijn's translation, which appeared at Daniel Gaasbeeck at Leiden, are only a small part of the originally intended prints. When you read the message to the binder in the back, you'll see that there was another set of prints (124 pieces!) that could have been bound with the Metamorphoses. The translation by Valentijn was followed by a third edition, this time with notes by the Amsterdam based physician and literary Ludolf Smids. ZKL0060

        e?d??????a. Dodona's Grove, Or, the Vocall Forrest. By I. H. Esq.

      London Printed By T B Thomas Badger for H. Mosley at the Princes Armes in St Paules Churchyard 1640 - FIRST EDITION. Folio, 278 x 161 mms., pp. [x], 32, 39-135, 166-219 [i.e. 183, 184 blank], engraved frontispiece, engraved title-page, two leaves of engraved trees, contemporary sheepskin, rebacked, title in gilt on spine, new end-papers; corners slightly worn, but a very good copy with the bookplate of D. G. Mackenzie on the front paste-down end-paper. Born in Llangamarch, Brecknockshire, James Howell (?1594 - 1666) attended Jesus College, Oxford, and took his B. A. in 1613. He worked in a glass factory and travelled abroad on behalf of his employer. He tried to enter other occupations but was unsuccessful, and, as ODNB records, "In the face of further disappointment Howell began his literary career in earnest in 1640 with the political allegory Dendrologia: Dodona's Grove, or, The Vocall Forest, an account of events since 1603; on travelling to France in that year he took with him his own French translation of the book, which was published at Paris." A rather eccentric article in Wikipedia claims that "This curiosity purports to be a history of Europe since the accession of James I of England put into an allegorical form in which the roles of the various kings, princes and nobles are taken by various trees. Its effect, however, is not quite what that would imply, as the tree-allegory remains on the level of the emblem, whereas the action demands if not people, then anthropomorphs convincingly capable of some sort of agency. he book's purported main subject, that of history, is often drowned out in the surface noise of the competing discourses in which it is expressed. The pulling of the text between narrative strategies, and between systems of mythology, medicine and philosophy can be arresting, and sometimes annoying, but these are disjunctions which are meant to be there, and the clashes and shifts in register which we see in this work are most probably intentional. Whether this makes good or bad historiography is another matter. In this case, the results are not important in terms of success or failure, but in terms of their invention."

        La grande testa grottesca

      1640 - Acquaforte, circa 1640, priva di firma. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con sottili margini, piccoli fori di tarlo perfettamente restaurati nella parte inferiore, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera è copie in controparte della rara incisione del Ribera che, negli esemplari di secondo stato, reca le iniziali dell’incisore, editore e mercante di stampe fiammingo Frans van den Wyngaerde (1614-1679). La stampa rappresenta un uomo affetto dal morbo di Reclinghausen (neuro fibromatosi multipla) che si manifesta con la comparsa di grossi tumori benigni. Possibile che la lastra fu realizzata per un progettato, ma mai completato, manuale per gli artisti principianti, una sorta di compendio per il disegno molto in voga negli artisti del periodo. Possibile inoltre che sia da assegnare allo stesso Frans van den Wyngaerde. Rara. Etching, circa 1640, unsigned. Magnificent proof, rich tone, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with narrow margins, small wormholes perfectly restored at the bottom, otherwise in excellent condition. The works is a counterpart copy of rare etching by Ribera, in the example of the second state, bearing the initials of the engraver, publisher and print dealer Flemish Frans van den Wyngaerde (1614-1679). The print shows a man suffering from Alzheimer's Reclinghausen (neuro fibromatosis multiple) which is manifested by the appearance of large benign tumors. Possible that is made for a planned, but never completed, a manual for beginners artists, a sort of compendium for design very popular in the artists of the period. Possible that this work may be assigned to Frans van den Wyngaerde himself. Rare. The Illustrated Bartsch 9; Brown 11; Salamon, Josepe de Ribera, 13. Dimensioni 120x160.

        Sacra Famiglia con San Giovannino

      1640 - Acquaforte, monogrammata in lastra in basso a destra CRF. Magnifica prova, particolarmente nitida e contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La composizione deriva da un soggetto di Simone Cantarini, come evidenziato in lastra in basso dall’iscrizione SCP exe. L’opera è sconosciuta al Bartsch, mentre è catalogata dal Bellini nei lavori d’apres Cantarini. L’attribuzione dubitativa al Ridolfi si deve al De Vesme che interpreta la firma in basso come Simone Cantarini Pinxit/ Carolus Ridolfi Fecit. Straordinario esemplare. Etching, monogrammed on plate at lower right CRF. Magnificent proof, with good contrast and very sharp details, on contemporary laid paper, no watermark, trimmed at the platemark, in excellent conditions. This print derives from a theme by Simone Cantarini, as proven by the inscription at the bottom of the plate bearing the words "SCP exe." This etching is unknown to Bartsch, while Bellini places it among the works d'apres Cantarini. De Vesme, instead, ascribes it to Ridolfi, interpreting the inscription as "Simone Cantarini pinxit/Carolus Ridolfi Fecit". Exceptional example. Bellini pag. 165, De Vesme pag. 17.

      Amsterdam, 1640 - Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca, 380x495. Elegante carta eseguita sull'originale di Magini. Ottimo esemplare. W.

Dopo la sua morte nel 1638, a cura del figlio Johan si giunse nel 1662 alla pubblicazione del celebre "Atlas Maior" in 11 volumi. Nel 1672 un incendio distrusse l'officina e segnÚ la fine dell'attivit? Copper engraving, original colour, 380x495. Elegant map from the original by Bompard. A very good example. W.

He immediately expanded the business publishing maps and in 1630 the first atlas "Atlantis appendix" and five years later the "Atlas novus". After his death in 1638, his son Joan reached publication of the major work of the family, the "Atlas maior" in 11 volumes. in 1672 a great fire destroyed the Blaeu's printing house. cartografia.

This classic account first appeared in 1614 and went through numerous additions being constantly added to as Lithgow made more travels. He visited Italy, the Ionian Islands, Athens, Crete and the Aegean Archipelago in 1609 and stayed for a time on Chios, where he met two French merchants whom he joined to visit Greek monuments and antiquities. Lithgow travelled some 36,000 miles as described in this work. He was imprisoned and tortured in Spain, released at the intervention of James I, and again imprisoned in London for assaulting the Spanish Ambassador.
