      Oxford: Printed by L. Lichfield, 1640. First Edition in English. First published in Toulouse in 1610, then revised and reissued in Paris in 1623, this discussion of erotic melancholy enraged the Inquisition and inspired Robert Burton. Toulouse-trained physician Jacques Ferrand (b. ca. 1575) defines the symptoms, especially the mood swings from jocumdity to deep melancholy, that accompanied unreasonable passions, and recommends treatments to control them, from diet and rigorous exercise to bloodletting. The Inquisition took issue with Ferrand even discussing astrology, chiromancy, and magic--even though he disparaged their claims--and with his frank discussion of sexual health. Perhaps his biggest offense, in their eyes, was treating erotomania as a physical disorder to be treated by medical means when the Church considered it a sickness of the soul curable only by God and his ministers. Madan notes that "If Robert Burton was acquainted with the first edition of this book, as he may well have been, there can be little doubt that he has taken or imitated the general method and treatment of the subject, in his Anatomy of Melancholy". Burton certainly owned a copy of the Paris 1623 edition (N.K. Kiessling, The Library of Robert Burton, Oxford, 1988, no. 566). The translation here is by Edmund Chilmead (1610-54), a serious scholar of music and a cleric at Christ Church, Oxford, who supplemented his meager income by transcribing music, translating books, and cataloguing the collection of Greek manuscripts at the Bodleian Library.. 145 x 95 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 5/8"). 20 p.l., 363 pp. Translated from the French by Edmund Chilmead. First Edition in English. Contemporary sprinkled sheep, flat spine divided into panels by double blind rules. Front free endpaper with neat early ink inscription in Latin. STC 10829; Madan I, 219. Front joint with one-inch crack at head, leather loose at head of spine, joints a little worn, tail edge of upper cover with thin half-inch hole from worming, extremities rubbed, but the binding still sound. Endpapers with offsetting from turn-ins, front pastedown with repaired three-inch tear, a5 with one-inch smudge affecting the final word on the last three lines of text, light dampstain to head margin throughout, other trivial imperfections, but still a very good copy, generally clean and fresh with no major defects.

        Il Sacrificio di Isacco

      1640 - Acquaforte, 1640-50, privo di data e firma. Stato unico. Il tema del sacrificio di Isacco è raccontata nella Genesi (22: 1-19): Dio comandò ad Abramo di sacrificare il suo unico figlio, Isacco, come prova della sua obbedienza. La storia è stata interpretata come una prefigurazione della crocifissione di Cristo, che il Padre ha mandato per essere sacrificato. Testa raffigura il momento in cui appare un angelo e arresta il braccio di Abramo che sta per colpire suo figlio; Nel frattempo, un altro angelo porta un agnello sacrificale da sostituire a Isacco. Presso il Museo Teylers, ad Haarlem, è conservato un disegno, a penna e inchiostro, solo leggermente più grande e corrispondente a questa incisione nella maggior parte dei dettagli. Harris e Brigstocke riferiscono la realizzazione di questa incisione alla fine del decennio 1630, mentre Bellini ritiene appartenga agli ultimi anni di Testa, o al periodo compreso tra il 1645 e il 1650, in relazione con la serie del figliol prodigo. Cropper suggerisce il biennio 1640-1642, più vicino a L'Adorazione dei Magi e al dipinto della Presentazione della Vergine al Tempio. Tuyll ha osservato che l'invenzione di Testa può essere collegato al rilievo in terracotta dello stesso soggetto di Alessandro Algardi, probabilmente della fine degli anni 1630, ora al Seattle Art Museum. Ci sono molte differenze tra i due, ma le proporzioni e la figura di Abramo potrebbero indicare che la sua conoscenza del rilievo. Testa può anche aver visto l’omonimo dipinto del Domenichino, ora al Prado, nel quale l'angelo toglie il pugnale dalla mano di Abramo e il paesaggio ha molte corrispondenze con quello interpretato da Testa. Come spesso accade per le sue stampe di questo periodo, che si occupano di temi austeri o tragici, l'incisione del sacrificio di Isacco illustra uno dei di brani biblici più drammatici. La propensione di Testa per tali soggetti potrebbe essere condizionata dalla sua complessa personalità, e alla sua depressione. Com’è noto, si suicidò annegando nel Tevere, all'età di 38 anni. Etching, 1640 – 1650, without date and signature. Only state. The subject of Isaac’s sacrifice is told in Genesis (22: 1–19): God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, as proof of his obedience. The story was interpreted as a prefiguration of the crucifixion of Christ, whom the Father sent to be sacrificed. Testa depicts the moment when an angel appears and stays Abraham’s arm as he is about to strike his son; meanwhile, another angel brings a sacrificial lamb to be substituted for Isaac. There is a fully resolved compositional drawing for this etching, in pen and ink, only slightly larger and corresponding to it in most details, preserved in the Teylers Museum, Haarlem. Harris and Brigstocke place this etching in the 1630s, whereas Bellini considers it to belong to Testa’s last years, or between 1645 and 1650, relating it to the series of the story of the Prodigal Son. Cropper suggest 1640-42, closer to The Adoration of the Magi and to the painting of The Presentation of the Virgin in the Temple. Tuyll have observed that Testa’s invention may be connected to the terra-cotta relief of the same subject by Alessandro Algardi, probably from the late 1630s, now in the Seattle Art Museum. There are many differences between the two, but the proportions and appearance of Testa’s figure of Abraham may well indicate his knowledge of the relief. Testa may also have known Domenichino’s painting, now in Museo del Prado, in which the angel also removes the dagger from Abraham’s hand and a brilliant landscape is similarly juxtaposed to the shady trees behind Abraham, whose features likewise resemble those portrayed by Testa. As is often the case with Testa’s mature prints, which deal with austere or tragic themes, the etching of The sacrifice of Isaac illustrates one of the most dramatic of biblical passages, touching on heroic suffering and the psychological conflict of the father figure, Abraham. Testa’s proclivity f [Attributes: Soft Cover]

With engraved frontispiece and 106 full-page engravings on integral leaves (at least 1 by Jacob Harrewijn). Contemporary gold-tooled calf.

      - Hunt 378; Nissen, ZBI, 859; South African bibl., p. 345; Stafleu & Cowan 2684. First edition of a botanical catalogue of about 3300 plants in the botanical garden of Leiden University (106 illustrated), compiled and apparently drawn by Paul Hermann (1640-1695). Hermann had only recently introduced many to Europe from the East Indies, Ceylon, the Cape and America. Most entries give the Latin name of the plant with references to the literature; some give more detailed descriptions. Hermann, born in Halle an der Saale, sailed with the VOC (Dutch East India Company) to Ceylon in 1672 and collected many plants there. As a professor of botany and medicine at Leiden University, he directed the University botanical garden from 1679 to his death in 1695. He made it the richest garden in Europe during the Dutch golden age, always looking over his shoulder at his leading competitor, Jan Commelin at the Amsterdam botanical garden. "He did excellent, vigorous work in depicting his plants" (Hunt). His premature death prevented publication of a planned second part. With bookplate and initial stamp. With a stain in the gutter of some quires, slightly affecting the lower inside corner of the last few engravings, slightly foxed throughout and a few quires slightly browned, but generally in good condition. The binding is worn, with a crack in the back hinge and the leather flaked. An extensive and well-illustrated catalogue of plants in the Leiden botanical garden.

        Frate con un libro seduto su una roccia in un paesaggio

      1640 - Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimo margine, minime ossidazioni, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione. Opera giovanile di Salvator Rosa, sconosciuta ai repertori, e sinora conosciuta nell’unico esemplare della Collezione Ferdinando Salamon, pubblicato nel catalogo monografico dell’Arte Antica di Torino. L’opera viene descritta:"E’ questa una stampa inedita rinvenuta nella stessa collezione seicentesca che conteneva il rarissimo - Uomo seduto su una roccia - e l’unico altro esemplare conosciuto del - Paesaggio lacustre -. Inoltre, nella stessa collezione, vi era anche il - Paesaggio con due figure -. Si tratta con certezza di un’opera giovanile di Rosa, da lui evidentemente abbandonata come le altre di quel periodo, forse un progettato san Gerolamo nel deserto. Le affinità stilistiche lo situano temporalmente ai primi anni del 1640, quando Rosa era parzialmente influenzato dalle incisioni di Claude Lorraine". Magnifico esemplare, di questa rarissima opera del Rosa. Al verso i timbri di collezione di J.E. WETTERAUER (Lugt 3869) R. ALIANELLO (Lugt 5K) Etching, about 1640-45, with no data publishing. A very fine proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to copperplate or with thin margins, two small spots, otherwise in perfect condition. Early work by Salvator Rosa, unknown to the repertoires, and so far in the only known copy of the Collection Ferdinand Salamon, published in the monographic catalog of Silverio Salamon. The work is described: "This work was found in the same collection seventeenth century which contained the rare - Man sitting on a rock - and the only other known example of the - Lake landscape -. Also in the same collection, there was also - Landscape with Two Figures -. It is sure of an early work of Rosa, he evidently abandoned like others of the period, perhaps a designed St. Jerome in the desert. The stylistic affinities temporally situate him in the early years of 1640, when Rosa was partially influenced by the engravings of Claude Lorraine. " Ex collection: J.E. WETTERAUER (Lugt 3869) R.

        Sacra Famiglia con Angeli

      1640 - Acquaforte,1640-45 circa, firmato in lastra in basso a sinistra "P. Testa". Bella prova impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al margine, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il disegno preparatorio per quest’acquaforte è andato perduto, ma le grandi proporzioni e la struttura fisica degli angeli, indicano un’esecuzione ai primi anni del quarto decennio del sec. XVII, vicina a opere quali "Le Stagioni"; "Il Trionfo dell’artista virtuoso sul Parnaso" e alla pala d’altare per S. Martino ai Monti. Sulla destra, appare la stella araldica di Girolamo Buonvisi che, se non fornisce un’indicazione certa che la stampa sia stata realizzata prima del ritorno del Buonvisi a Lucca, in occasione della morte di papa Urbano VIII nel 1644, supporta comunque la datazione proposta sulla base dell’analisi stilistica. La storia del miracolo della palma che, durante la Fuga in Egitto, si piega alla volontà del Bambino producendo i suoi datteri per sfamare Giuseppe e Maria, è raccontata nel vangelo dello pseudo Matteo. L’albero qui rappresentato è un melo che rimanda all’albero della conoscenza e quindi all’albero della vita: Testa quindi riprende ancora una volta il tema sviluppato ne Il sogno di Giuseppe, cioè la Fuga in Egitto come inizio della via Crucis di Cristo. Etching, circa 1640-45, inscribed in the image in lower left "P. Testa". Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed at margins, in very good condition. No drawings survive for this etching, but the muscular figures of the angels and the grander proportions of the other figures, indicate a date in the early 1640s, close to those of "The Season", "The Triumph of the Virtuous Artist on Parnassus" and the alterpiece for San Martino ai Monti. The heraldic star of Girolamo Buonvisi that appears on the left, does not provide absolute confirmation that the print was made before Buonvisi’s return to Lucca upon the death of Urban VIII in 1644, but it supports the stylistic evidence that the print was made close to that date. The story of meal miraculously produced by a date palm for the Holy Family on the Flight into Egypt is told by the Pseudo-Matthew. Testa inserts an apple tree, that refers to the Tree of Kowdledge and so to the Tree of Life: Testa is here taking up once more the theme developed in The Dream of Joseph that Christ undertook the Way of Cross when he fled into Egypt.

        Mappa Aestivarum Insularum, alias Barmudas

      Amsterdam 1640 - Questa magnifica mappa si basa sulla relazione di John Norwood, della Bermuda Company, del 1618. Il territorio è diviso nelle originarie tribù, e nella tabella sono riportati i nomi dei primi coloni, con la relativa parte assegnata. L'isola fu scoperta nel 1515 dallo spagnolo Juan de Bernudez, che le diede il nome. Ma fu solo a partire dal naufragio del 1609 della "Sea Venture", guidata da Sir George Sommers, che l'isola venne colonizzata dagli inglesi, per diventare colonia britannica nel 1684. In omaggio all'ammiraglio, gli inglesi chiamarono l'isola Sommers o Summers Island, da qui il titolo latino di "Mappa Aestivarum Insularum". Di ulteriore interesse, la raffigurazione, nella superiore della mappa, della Virginia e di New England, mentre in basso, a sinistra, si vede la punta di Hispaniola. Una delle più più accurate e affascintanti mappe dell'epoca. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei confini, in ottime condizioni. The map shows the island divided into tribes and lots, and below the map itself appear the coats of arms of Bermuda and England and the names of the first proprietors and the number of shares assigned each. A most attractive variant on the Norwood survey map. The ‘Sea Venture’ under Sir George Somers was wrecked off Bermuda in 1609 and the surviving Englishmen divided the island into Tribes (later Parishes) and Shares, which are individually listed with their owners at the foot of the map. The map's Latin title, Mappa Aestivarum Insularum, means Summer (or Somers) Island for its first leader. Shortly afterwards the Bermudas were granted to the Virginia Company, hence various references to the Company on the map including the distance to the Roanoke Colony in Virginia. The miniature map with its own scale, top left, shows the island’s position relative to the Virginian coast. Jansson derived his map from Richard Norwood’s survey which was carried out in 1622 and published by John Speed in 1627. It remains one of the most accurate and decorative maps of the period. Copperplate, original outline colour, in good condition. Palmer/Tooley, The mapping of Bermuda, plate XI. Dimensioni 520 400mm

        Africa antique map - Bleau, c. 1640.

      ?Africae nova descriptio? Copper engraving with outline colour to cartographical image and full colour to pictorial borders. Published in Amsterdam by Willem Jansz. and Joan Blaeu c. 1640. Size: 41 x 55,5 cm. In handsome walnut frame.This is a cornerstone map of Africa and is one of the better known, more decorative maps of Africa of the seventeenth century.The map shows major African towns across the top: Tangiers, Ceuta, Algiers, Tunis, Alexandria, Cairo, the island of Mozambique, The Mine at St. George in Guinea and Canaria in the Canary Islands. The left and right borders show various indigenous costumes: Moroccans, Senegalese, traders in Guinea, Congolese, Egyptians, Abyssinians, Mozambicans, the king of Madagascar and inhabitants of Cape of Good Hope.The body of the map is richly embellished with animals, including elephants, monkeys, ostriches, gazelles, lions, cheetahs and camels. In the oceans are numerous sailing ships, sea monsters, flying fish, and a gorgeous compass rose. Much of the geographical information is still based on the Ptolemaic maps, with the Nile shown with its source in the Lakes Zaire and Zaflan. Also included are various other mythical lakes and rivers including the famous Lake Sachaf. Only coastal towns are named on the Cape, with the printing covering much of the unknown territory.Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz. Bleau (1571-1638) as he was to be later more commonly known, was one of the noted Dutch cartographers and map publishers of the seventeenth century. After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, Bleau initially concentrated on globemaking and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for wall maps and sea atlases, and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons Joan (c. 1599-1673) and Cornelis (1610-1644), culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes by Joan Bleau with subsequent editions. On February 23, 1672 a fire at the offices of the Bleau publishing effectively ended the successful Bleau business. Joan died after the fire in 1673, and, though Joan II continued the business for some time, many of the plates were auctioned shortly thereafter. This map was not reprinted after 1672 as the Africa copperplate is not known to have survived the fire. The Spanish edition of the Atlas Maior was in the process of being printed, including the section on Africa with this map of Africa, when the fire occurred.Blaeu?s maps set the standard for the quality of the engraving, paper and colour, as well as a fine depiction of contemporary geographical knowledge.Price: ?3.500,- (incl. frame) (BTW/VAT margin scheme).

        Asia antique map - Willem Blaeu, 1640.

      MAP OF ASIA"Asia Noviter Delineata." Carte-a-figures by Willem Blaeu depicting the native manners of dress, and nine city plans and views at the top. Copper engraving printed in 1640, coloured by a later hand. Size 41 x 55,2 cm.A fine example of Willem Blaeu's famous map of Asia. Like the Blaeu Africa map, this is a map that appeals both to a sense of cartographic history and to an aesthetic sense of beauty. This is a cornerstone, folio-size map of Asia and is one of the better known, more decorative maps of Asia of the 17th century. This map is basically a reduction of Blaeu's wallmap of Asia of 1608. The map contains extensive details on what was known of Asia in the early 17th century. Korea is still an enlonged island. Japan has a predominantly east to west direction. In China, the Great Wall is shown along with the in-land lakes.Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) as he is more commonly known, was one of the most noted Dutch cartographers and map publisher of the 17th century. Blaeu's maps are "esteemed by collectors for their decorative quality, historical importance, and as the highest expression of Dutch cartographic art during the period of its supremacy" (Tooley, p 28).After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer,Tycho Brahe, Blaeu initially concentrated on globe making and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for sea atlases and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons, culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes with subsequent editions.The map is in its 3rd state. The 1st state of 1617 was issued separately and has the name of "Willem Jansz" (not Blaeu) in the title cartouche. This state is rare and is virtually impossible to acquire. The 2nd state of 1621-30 has the name changed to "Guiljelmo Blaeuw" in the title. Price: ?2.850,- (excl. VAT/BTW).
