        Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographia ac Hydrographia Tabula

      Frankfurt:, c.1646. [World map] Size: 350 x 260 mm. Mounted size: 520 x 435 mm. Copper engraving. Later colour. Excellent condition. A very attractive and detailed world map, laid out according to Mercator's projection; text in German in ornamented gothic and Latin scripts; two polar hemispheres in the lower corners. The acclaimed Swiss engraver Matthew Merian prepared this world map from Blaeu's world map, though it lacks the latter's decorative border and is about two-thirds the size. Originally published in 1638, this copy, without Merian's signature, was prepared for Gottfried's Archontologica in 1646.

Broad-margined, plates fine.. Scarce first (and only) edition of this great book, best described as a "CITRUS ENCYCLOPEDIA" with its magnificent plates, drawn and engraved by Cornelis Bloemaerts, one of the great Dutch 17th-century botanical artists, and shows life-sized whole fruits and their sections."The plates were produced by the best artists of the time, such as Johann Friedrich Greuter, Cornelis Bloemaert and Nicolas Joseph Foucault. Plates were also prepared by the renowned painters and draughtsmen of Roman Baroque, such as Pietro da Cortona, Andrea Sacchi, Nicolas Poussin, Pietro Paolo Ubaldini, F. Perier, Francesco Albani, Philippe Gagliard, F. Ramanelli, Guido Reni, Dominic Zampieri and H. Rinaldi. The plates show life-sized whole fruit, including sections. Other plates show Hercules, mythological scenes, garden buildings, Orangeries, garden tools, etc.."(Wikipedia)."Hesperides is a book in four parts with the first part elaborating on the archaeological, numismatic, mythological and etymological background to citrus lore. The next three parts are about citrons, lemons, and oranges respectively. Perhaps the most notable aspect of these three sections is Ferrari's extensive and dedicated effort to establish precise taxonomic data. "If the taxonomic drive in the De Florum Cultura is strong, it is almost overwhelming in the Hesperides." (Freedberg). Ferrari's method depended upon the close examination of specimens which he obtained from gardens and collections in and out of Rome. He was fortunate in having a large number of correspondents who sent him reports and specimens and, of course, Cassiano was the invaluable primary correspondent and collector. Hesperides includes eighty botanical plates which were the work of seven important artists of the time and the engravings were done by Johann Friedrich Greuter and Cornelis Bloemaert. There are also a number of illustrations of other subjects such as orangeries and ancient statues; these were likewise the work of eminent Roman artists and engravers. Three plates show the arrival of the apples of the Hesperides in Italy, specifically at Rome, Naples, and Lake Garda. Others illustrate stories from mythology, and the entire effect of the book is to show a combination of botanical science, story-telling, and poetic explanation. Perhaps it may be best described as a "citrus encyclopedia"."Hesperides sive de Malorum Aureorum cultura", resulted directly from his close relationship with Cassiano dal Pozzo, one of Rome's leading scholars and patrons of natural history studies. Along with many other scholars of his time, Cassiano was intensely interested in the citrus family, and he not only corresponded extensively on the subject, he collected specimens from many quarters. In its final form, Hesperides was a collaborative work even though Cassiano's name is not included in the authorship. He was the source of much of the information for the book, while Ferrari was the editor, composer, and author; Cassiano also managed the financing of the publication." (Robert F. Erickson)."The Garden of the Hesperides is Hera's orchard in the west, where either a single tree or a grove of immortality-giving golden apples grew. The apples were planted from the fruited branches that Gaia gave to her as a wedding gift when Hera accepted Zeus. The Hesperides were given the task of tending to the grove, but occasionally plucked from it themselves. Not trusting them, Hera also placed in the garden a never-sleeping, hundred-headed dragon named Ladon as an additional safeguard. After Heracles completed his first ten Labours, Eurystheus gave him two more claiming that neither the Hydra counted (because Iolaus helped Heracles) nor the Augean stables (either because he received payment for the job or because the rivers did the work). The first of these two additional Labours was to steal the apples from the garden of the Hesperides. Heracles first caught the Old Man of the Sea, the shape-shifting sea god, to learn where the Garden of the Hesperides was located." (Wikipedia).Hunt: 243.

        "l'historia di milano volgarmente scritta... nella quale non solamente si veggono l'origine, i fatti, et le fortune di essa citta', nello spatio di due mille cento anni; ma gli accidenti, et le resolutioni di quasi tutta l'italia, et di molte provincie, et regni del mondo ancora. con le vite insieme di tutti gli imperatori..." in padoa, frambotto, 1646.

Le Vite degl'Imperatori, incominciando da Giulio Cesare fino a Federico Barbarossa. In Padoa, Paolo Frambotto, 1646. Legatura strettamente coeva in piena pergamena semirigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Bell'esemplare, genuino e marginoso. Pregiata riedizione secentesca della celebre storia di Milano del Corio, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1503 e costituente la più compiuta ricostruzione storiografica delle vicende milanesi compiuta nel Rinascimento. La trattazione, quanto a impostazione tipico portato della storiografia umanistica, parte dalle origini della città per giungere sino alla fuga di Ludovico il Moro in Germania. La seconda opera delinea le biografie di numerosi Imperatori da Giulio Cesare sino a Federico Barbarossa. Il Corio (Milano, 1459-in località non conosciuta, 1519 ca.) fu storico, giureconsulto e letterato. Dal 1474 al servizio di Galeazzo Maria Sforza, in seguito alla sua morte passò al servizio di Gian Galeazzo Maria e assunse svariati incarichi pubblici (nel 1499 fu nominato giudice delle strade) nel periodo del ducato di Ludovico il Moro. Alla caduta del Moro abbandonò Milano, e non si conoscono con certezza ne' la data ne' il luogo della sua morte. STC XVII Century, 261. Michel-Michel, II, 130. Cat. Hoepli, 649. Cfr. Predari, p. 136. Argelati, I, II, 467. Tiraboschi, VI, 749: ""...Scritto esattissimo, minuto talora fino all'eccesso, e diligente nel corredare la Storia di molti autentici documenti"".
