        [Garden bugloss] Buglossum sempervirens Hispanicum latifolium; [White Italian bugloss] Buglossum Italicum flore albo; [Blue Italian bugloss] Buglossum Italicum flore coeruleo

      Eichstatt, 1640. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

      A Lyon, chez la veuve de C. Rigaud & Philippes Bordes, 1640. In-4, (4) ff., 328 pp., vélin de l'époque.Né à Yenne en 1548, Claude de Granier fut élève au Collège dAnnecy alors récemment fondé par Eustache Chapuys. Attiré par la vie religieuse, il commençât un noviciat à labbaye de Talloires et en 1563, à lâge de 15 ans, obtint la commende des prieurés unis de Talloires et Saint-Jorioz. Dès 1568, muni dun doctorat en droit canonique, il entreprit en vain de réformer les murs dissolues des moines de Talloires. Il demeura prieur de cette abbaye jusquen 1579, date à laquelle il abandonna cette charge pour devenir évêque dAnnecy. Il refusa le cardinalat et mourut en 1602 ; François de Sales devait lui succéder à cet évêché . Certains exemplaires ont au titre une grande vignette gravée sur cuivre, espace laissé blanc sur les autres (ce qui est le cas ici). Précieux exemplaire portant sur le titre lex-libris manuscrit de Charles François de Sales.

        DE SEGHELEN DER GRAVEN VAN VLAENDREN Ende Voor-schriften van hunne Brieven / Histori-Wys Uyt-Gheleyt

      Bruges, Belgium. 1640. 1st edition. hb. Small 4to, Printed by Ian Baptiste and Lucas vanden Kerchove. Pagination: pp. (10), 208, (44), 112 (plates and maps), (58). . A compendium of the shields, escutcheons and crests of the nobles of Flanders, with illustrations thereof. Written in Flemish, and published duing the period of Spanish rule; hence the effusive dedication to King Philip of Spain. Bound in period half leather over what might best be described as printer's boards, now heavily scuffed and slightly bowed. Joints starting but binding holding nicely. Stain to first 30, or so, pages, extending down from top margin about half way. Pages a bit rolled from binding stress, otherwise (except as noted) contents clean and unmarked, especially those pages on which the copper engravings of medallions, crests and maps are displayed. Some early Dutch handwriting to inside front board. Name (early "copperplate") to inside rear board. Measures 27 x 19 cm. WorldCat notes only sixteen copies in libraries of the "Dutch" edition of this book. Similarly, WorldCat notes only one institutional holding of the 1640 German edition (The British Library, London), although we suspect that this is an error as the information provided suggests that the cataloger mis-identified this as a separate German edition (Flemish and German, especially in the old type fonts, appear very similar). Four copies have appared at auction in the last five years, with an average hammer price of just over $1,000 USD. .

        Apollo e Marsia

      1640. Acquaforte, circa 1640, firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con inusuali ampli margini, tracce di piega centrale, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione. Rarissimo foglio, di invenzione dello stesso artista bolognese. Giovanni Andrea Sirani iniziò la sua attività presso Giacomo Cavedone, passando successivamente nella bottega di Guido Reni e ne divenne l'allievo più fedele oltre che colui che, ne ereditò la maggior parte dei disegni. Sappiamo che il Sirani fosse il più mite dei numerosi allievi di Guido, spesso avidi di far denaro alle spalle del maestro con il commercio di sottobosco di piccole opere che venivano poi spacciate per opere autentiche. Dimostrando la sua abile capacità disegnativa si era conquistato il favore del Reni che lo incaricava soprattutto di riportare i cartoni sulle tele. Etching, 1640 circa, signed on lower centre plate. Magnificent work printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, uncommon wide margins and signs of central fold, otherwise in excellent condition. A very rare work, invented by the Bolognese artist himself. Giovanni Andrea Sirani started working in the workshop of Giacomo Cavedone and afterwards he went to Guido Reni's, becoming his most faithful pupil and the heir of the majority of his drawings. Sirani was the meekest among Guido's pupils, who often were often very greedy and tried to make out some money on their master by selling minor works that were passed off as originals. Showing his skills as a drawer, Sirani gained Reni's favour who often commissioned him to copy the preparatory drawings on the canvases. Bartsch XIX, p. 149, 2

Piacevole carta del Tirolo, comprendente l'odierno Alto Adige e la parte occidentale del Tirolo austriaco, arricchita da un bel cartiglio in basso. Tratta da "Atlas Novus". Janssonius, genero di Jodocus Hondius e cognato di Henricus, collaborò alla pubblicazione di atlanti, dopo l'acquisizione delle lastre di Mercatore da parte di Jodocus e dal 1638 fu in effetti colui che guidò l'impresa editoriale, mentre Henricus Hondius lentamente abbandonava l'attività (dal 1646 il suo nome non apparirà più su alcun frontespizio); risultò così divenire il grande avversario della famiglia Blaeu nel secolo d'oro della cartografia olandese.

This is the second state of Blaeu's map of the southeastern portion of North America. The map depicts the region from present day northern Florida to Chesapeake Bay. France is shown as governing the southern portion of this land (though they had been forced out in fact some time before by the Spanish) and Great Britain as ruler of the northeast. As pointed out by Burden, this map improves on the Hondius-Mercator map of the same region in its depiction of the Outer Banks and in its inclusion of the Chesapeake Bay, and it provided the best depiction of the region until 1700. Its handsome cartouche surrounded by full figure Native Americans and its elaborate calligraphy contribute to make it one of the most artistically successful maps of 17th century America. Cumming, 41 (plate 26); Burden, The Mapping of North America 253; Goss, 31.

        Riviera di Genova di Levante

      1640 c.. Incisione in rame, colorata a mano, mm 380x495. Fascinosa carta con due ricchi cartigli ai due angoli destri. Janssonius fu in collaborazione con il cognato Henricus Hondius, il più importante concorrente dei Blaeu a cui ispirò ed uniformò la produzione, tanto da costringere Blaeu, anch'egli Jansson di cognome, a scegliere il suo famoso pseudonimo per differenziare la propria produzione. Buon esemplare, molto marginoso.

        Opobalsamu[m] Triumphans. Basel, Franz Perna, 1640.

      1640. 4to. Engraved t. p., (6), 51 (1) pp. Written space rules throughout. Marbled boards. Early botanical study of the Balsam of Mecca (Balm of Gilead), a resinous gum of the tree Commiphora opobalsamum, native to southern Arabia. The resin was valued for use in medicine and perfume in ancient Greece and the Roman Empire; thus Pliny the Elder mentions it as one of the ingredients of the "Royal Perfume" of the Parthians in his "Naturalis Historia". - One of several editions published the same year; Perna himself produced another version without his imprint on the title page. "Concerns controversy with Antonio Manfredi and Vincenzio Panulio" (Krivatsy). - Born and educated at Rome, the surgeon and botanist Pietro Castelli (1574-1662) moved to Messina in 1634. Here, he laid out the botanical gardens, where he cultivated many exotic medicinal plants. - Heavy brownstaining throughout, still a good copy of this rare work. VD 17, 1:062780A. Cf. Krivatsy 2252.

        Iesus Maria. Relatione dello stato, nel quale si trova la città di Siena e il suo dominio per tutto l’anno 1640

      s.d. (1640/1658). 4to (cm. 29) Manoscritto di 5 cc.nn. (la quinta è bianca), 86 cc. num. e 19 cc.nn. (bianche). Testo in prevalenza su 20 righe. Nitida, bella grafia. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo (’Storia di Siena’) ms. al ds. Ottimo stato di conservazione. Il manoscritto contiene, tra l’altro, ‘Numero dell’Anime della Città e masse... Famiglie della città sopra ducati cento d’entrata... Numero di Cavalieri, Dottori, Notari, Famiglie nobili... Denaro che si rigira in Siena... Descrizione di tutte le Città. Terre e Castelli ad uno ad uno con il numero de’ Fuochi, Anime, Poderi Ecclesiastici...’. Questa Relazione sullo Stato di Siena e suo Dominio sembra sia stata ordinata dal Granduca Ferdinando II e redatta da A. Ventura, F. De Medici, B. Fantini e G. Biringucci. In quel periodo si era infatti verificata una diminuzione dell’industria e un incremento dei conventi con conseguenza crescita dei religiosi regolari insieme ad un decremento della popolazione. Ciò aveva provocato una contrazione delle entrate e un aggravamento del debito delle singole Comunità, costituendo naturalmente fonte di grave preoccupazione. Rarissimo e importantissimo documento. L’unica altra copia a noi nota è conservata all’Archivio di Stato di Siena, ma differisce in alcuni dettagli dalla nostra e non contiene i dati della popolazione relativi agli anni 1596 e 1638. Inoltre manca dell’aggiornamento degli stessi dati fino al 1657.

        Relationi universali. Arricchite di molte cosse rare, e memorabili. E con ultima mano dell'autore. Venice, Giunta, 1640.

      1640. 4to. (8), 800, (36) pp. With 4 folding engr. plates (Europe, Asia, Africa, America). (Bound with) II: The same. Della ragioni di stato, libri dieci. Ibid., 1640. (8), 264 pp. Contemp. vellum with ms. spine title. Famous geographical treatise by Giovanni Botero (1544-1617), with Arabia pictured on both the Asia and the Africa plate, and discussions of the Arabian Peninsula (pp. 120 ff.), the Middle East (pp. 123 ff.), "Arabia troglodotica" [!] (p. 130 f.), Egypt (pp. 131 ff.). Originally conceived as a statistical examination of the ecumenical propagation of Christianity, in subsequent editions the work gradually expanded until it formed a comprehensive repertory of anthropology and geography, with systematic accounts of the physical properties, demographics, economic resources, military power, and political constitution of all states of the world. - Appended to this is Botero's famous treatise "Della ragion di Stato" (The Reason of State), in which Botero argues - against Machiavelli - that a prince's power must be based on some form of consent of his subjects, and princes must make every effort to win the people's affection and admiration. - Some browning throughout; occasional insignificant edge defects and small tears; traces of old library stamps. Graesse I, 504. Cf. Cox I, 71.

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 segnò la fine dell'attività. Splendido esemplare.
