Stefano della BELLA (Firenze 1610 - 1664)
1646. Acquaforte, 1646, firmata e datata in lastra in basso. Esemplare nel rarissimo primo stato di quattro, avanti il gallo sopra il campanile della chiesa di San Germain de L'Auxerrois. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimi margini, piccole abrasioni visibili al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La veduta di Parigi presa dal Ponte Neuf rappresenta uno dei capolavori di Stefano della Bella, e la sua lastra più grande. La tavola è straordinariamente animata da centinaia di personaggi e animali, in un grande intreccio di scene di vita quotidiana una affiancata all'altra. La Massar descrive solo due stati dell'opera, ampliati a quattro da Silverio Salamon. Il primo stato, indicato come raro, si riconosce per l'assenza del piccolo gallo sul campanile della chiesa indicata nella legenda con il numero 8. La Massar diffida i collezionisti a verificare che l'assenza del gallo non sia stata causata direttamente nella stampa, grattando l'opera. Magnifica prova di questa rara e spettacolare incisione. Etching, 1646 , signed and dated in the plate at the bottom. Rare example of the first state of four, before the cock on the steeple of the church of St. Germain L' Auxerrois. Magnificent proof, rich in shades , printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the copperplate or with very thin margins, small abrasions visible on the verso, otherwise in excellent condition. The view of Paris taken from the Pont Neuf is one of the masterpieces of Stefano della Bella and her biggest plate. The table is extraor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johannes JANSSONIUS (1588 - 1664)
1646. Splendida carta geografica che illustra l'isola divisa in sette regni, nel periodo anglo - sassone. Le vignette poste sulla sinistra contengono i ritratti degli antichi sovrani, mentre quelle sulla destra raffigurano le conversioni al cristianesimo dei sovrani. La carta del Janssonius, per la prima volta edita nel 1646, segue di un anno la stessa del Blaeu, rispetto alla quale si differenza solo per le righe di compasso presenti nel mare. Coloritura coeva, alcuni restauri al verso, nel complesso in buone condizioni. Decorative map of the British Isles, showing the Saxon Kingdoms of Britain in the 5th to 6th Centuries. Jansson's Saxon Heptrarchy map is drawn directly from Joan Blaeu's map of the same title published in 1645, but can be readily distinguished from Blaeu's map by the addition of 3 compass roses, rhumb lines and sailing ships. Blaeu in turn based his map upon a John Speed's map of 1611, which incorporates the two sets of vignettes on either side of the map, showing historical scenes in Saxon history between 456 and 662 A.D. The vignettes have been completely redone by a Dutch engraver and are in the grand style of contemporary Dutch paintings. One of the most decorative and sought after atlas maps of Great Britain published in the 17th Century. Amsterdam Amsterdam R. W. Shirley, Early Printed Maps of British Isles...", pp. 193/4, pl. 154. 530 430

NICERON (Jean François)
Paris, F. Langlois, 1646. frontispice, portrait, (34), 222 pages et 42 planches vélin ancien 1646, 1646, in - folio, frontispice, portrait, (34), 222 pages et 42 planches, vélin ancien, Première édition latine, en partie originale. La première partie de cet ouvrage, est la seule parue d'une œuvre plus vaste que Niceron ne put mener à bien et dont la première édition date de 1638. A sa mort en 1646, ses amis reprirent son manuscrit et le publièrent dans sa version latine sous le titre Thaumaturgus Opticus. Mais l'achèvement de cette publication fut finalement accompli par Marin Mersenne, puis, à la mort de ce dernier, en 1648, par Roberval, et donna lieu à une édition en français en 1651 - 1652. "C'est un travail scientifique où la science évolue dans l'atmosphère d'un conte. [...] Conçue comme une machine de précision, avec ses agencements secrets, la perspective qui éloigne et rapproche, qui fait bouger et qui anime les formes de l'univers de l'illusion", appartient aux miracles, à la magie, à la poésie. (Baltrusaitis, Anamorphoses ou perspectives curieuses, Perrin, 1950, p. 22). Bien plus tard, cet ouvrage inspirera fortement l'artiste Marcel Duchamp, qui le cita ainsi dans sa Boîte blanche : "Voir Catalogue de la bibliothèque Ste - Geneviève, toute la rubrique Perspective, Niceron (Le père J, Fr.), Thaumaturgus opticus".

HERMANN, Paul.
Kuijlen & Wijnands, Paradisus Batavus 79; Stafleu & Cowan 2686; STCN 833427695. First and only edition of a Latin flora of the botanical garden at Leiden University, with the plants arranged in a classification scheme prefiguring Linnaeus, references to the relevant literature and an appendix with further details about the characteristics with references to the catalogue itself, by Paul Hermann (1646-1695) director of the botanical garden. It was edited by Lothar Zumbach von Coesfeld (1661-1727) and lists about 600 plants, with an alphabetical index. For most plants it cites either Hermann's more extensive 1687 alphabetical catalogue of the collection or Gaspard Bauhin's 1623 Pinax theatri botanici , another landmark of plant classification. 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.The presumably blank *8 has been removed as intended, as in all copies we have seen. With one early manuscript marginal note in Latin. Book and binding in very good condition. An important Leiden flora and an early example of a botanical catalogue arranged according to a classification scheme.

DUDLEY, Sir Robert (1574-1649).
Florence: 1646 2 sheets joined (23 x 17 ½ inches, trimmed margins showing the platemark). Fine engraved map showing Japan with ornate cartouche and compass rose (very light toning, some separation along the fold). Robert Dudley's splendid Arcano del mare (Secrets of the Sea) is one of the greatest and most complex atlases of the world ever produced. Dudley's monumental work was the only exception to the total dominance of sea-atlas production by the Dutch for nearly a century. The complete work contained nearly 150 sea charts as well as dozens of illustrations and working diagrams. It was superior to any previous work in that the charts illustrated the whole world, and the first time any outside of Europe had been included. Arcano del mare was also the first atlas to show the prevailing winds, currents and magnetic deviation. In using the projection developed by Mercator, Dudley improved upon the theory of navigating by the "Great Circle," the shortest distance between two points on a globe. It was not until the eighteenth century that cartographers used the projection consistently, and during the prolonged period when the Dutch dominated cartographic production, not one atlas was produced using it. One of the great marine atlases of all time, this magnificently engraved work is an encyclopedia of seventeenth-century knowledge regarding the seas. Dudley was one of the more colorful and adventurous characters in the history of mapmaking. The illegitimate son of the Earl of Leicester and Lady Douglas Sheffield, but unable to establish his claim to the title of Earl of Leicest … [Click Below for Full Description]

I due autori narrano storie inerenti Ferrara con particolare riguardo per i componenti della famiglia dei duchi d'Este, spinti dagli stessi a magnificare le glorie della citté e, soprattutto, dei suoi reggitori. Su Gaspare Sardi (1480 circa - dopo il 1559), nella Storia Letteraria d'Italia, Giovanni da Pozzo, a proposito del linguaggio usato, … [Click Below for Full Description]

HAARLEM IN DE GOUDEN EEUW"Harlemum vernacule Haerlem', kopergravure voorstellende een plattegrond van Haarlem vervaardigd door Pieter Wils in 1646, uitgegeven ca. 1649 door Joan Blaeu te Amsterdam als deel van het "Tooneel der Steden van de Vereenighde Nederlanden'.Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) ca. 46,5 x 57 cm. Door de inname van Antwerpen door Spaanse troepen in 1585 vluchtten duizenden naar de noordelijke Nederlanden. Vlaamse textielarbeiders zochten een veilig heenkomen in onder andere Leiden, Amsterdam en Haarlem. Het Haarlemse stadsbestuur was zich er van bewust dat ze deze nieuwkomers moest zien te behouden om de eigen in verval geraakte textielnijverheid nieuw leven in te blazen en kwam hen tegemoet met riante subsidies, tijdelijke belastingvrijstellingen, gunstige vestigingsvoorwaarden, maar vooral door het aanbieden van woon- en werkruimte. Daartoe werd een aantal kloosters afgebroken en werden de vrijgekomen terreinen verkaveld in woonerven.Eind zestiende eeuw waren de meeste open plekken in de stad opgevuld. De toestroom van vluchtelingen bleef evenwel onverminderd aanhouden. Hoewel verboden, moest het stadsbestuur toezien dat er ook buiten de stadsmuren een allegaartje aan bebouwing ontstond.De stad kreeg pas in 1610 weer een beetje lucht, toen het enorme terrein ten zuidwesten van de stad voor bebouwing werd gereserveerd. Het hele terrein werd verkaveld in zo"n 250 percelen. Deze kaart van Pieter Wils laat zien hoe zuinig er met de grond werd omgesprongen. Vrijwel nergens is een tuintje te zien en in sommige woonblokken staan de huizen zelfs rug aan … [Click Below for Full Description]
