        Le Vite de' più eccellenti Pittori, Scultori et Architetti. In questa nuova edizione diligentemente riviste, ricorrette, accresciute d'alcuni ritratti & accresciute di postille nel margine

      presso gli Heredi di Evangelista Dozza, 1647. 3 voll. in-4° antico (235x171mm), pp. (18), 76 (contenenti queste ultime il "Proemio di tutta l'opera", il "Proemio delle Vite" e l'"Introduzzione [sic] alle tre Arti del Disegno, cioè Architettura, Pittura, e Scultura"), 432 (le prime due parti dell'opera in numerazione continua e in un unico volume); 543; (40), 408 + 132 nn. di indici. Legatura dell'epoca in piena pergamena molle con titolo manoscritto anticamente ai dorsi. Antiche firme agli occhietti. Ottimo esemplare su carta pesante. Qualche usuale fioritura della carta. 3 antiporte allegoriche incise su rame dal Bloemaert su invenzione del Canini, alla quale si ispira il Livaldini per il suo sonetto (l'antiporta risulta spesso mancante e solitamente figura nel solo primo volume). La vita di ogni artista reca in principio, a tre quarti di pagina, un ritratto dell'artista, per un totale di oltre 150 incisioni silografiche. Antica annotazione al verso dell'ultima carta del medesimo tomo. Il terzo volume reca al proprio inizio la "Lettera di M. Gio. Battista Adriani à M. Giorgio Vasari; nella quale breveme[n]te si raccontano i nomi, e l'opere de'più eccellenti Artefici antichi in Pittura, in Bronzo, & in Marmo, qui aggiunta, acciocché non ci si desideri cosa alcuna di quelle, che appartenghino alla intera notitia, e gloria di queste nobili arti". Di seguito alla lettera, ritratto su legno dell'Adriani a piena pagina in ovale bordato da cornice riccamente ornata a motivi decorativi e arabeschi. Reintegrazioni al dorso del primo vol. Qualche alone e fioritura leggera. Un restauro alle pp. 307-308 del primo vol. Mancanza ininfluente all'angolo delle pp. 25-26 dell'ultimo vol. Bell'esemplare. Begli ex-libris ottocenteschi incisi all'acquaforte raffiguranti la Villa di Sesto dei Marchesi Corsi, ossia la Villa Corsi Salviati di Sesto Fiorentino, di proprietà dei Guicciardini Corsi Salviati, da cui l'esemplare proviene. Terza edizione in assoluto, la seconda figurata. Importante edizione secentesca ampliata, di una delle pietre miliari della storia della storiografia artistica. L'impressione, estremamente pregiata, riproduce la lezione testuale e le silografie (riutilizzando i legni originali) della prima edizione figurata, la giuntina del 1568 (la prima assoluta è del 1550), ma con l'aggiunta di centinaia di note marginali e di una mezza dozzina di ritratti del tutto nuovi, sempre incisi su legno e nello stile iconografico di quelli originali della stampa giuntina. "...The first modern history of art. It has made Vasari's name immortal...Vasari's excellent sense of narrative...and lively style combined with his wide personal acquaintance makes his "Lives" a vital contribution to our understanding of the character and psychology of the great artists of the Renaissance...It became a model for subsequent writing on the history of art and was the forerunner to the remarkable series of studies on the various Italian schools of painting produced in Italy during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries" (P.M.M.). Il capolavoro vasariano abbraccia la storia delle arti in Italia da Cimabue sino al manierismo tardocinquecentesco, costituendone la principale fonte documentaria, destinata a fissare le linee portanti della storiografia (con la preminenza conferita a Firenze rispetto agli altri centri di produzione) e della critica artistica sino a Bernard Berenson; le "Vite", scrive Benedetto Croce, "sono solcate da lampi quali non rifulsero giammai nell'antichità". Interessante osservare come qui ricorra per la prima volta il sostantivo "rinascita" riferito alla periodizzazione artistica. Manca alla Vinciana e al Cicognara. Brunet, V, 1096, Graesse, VII, 264, note e Sidney Churchill, "Bibliografia Vasariana", passim. Per la prima edizione, Schlosser Magnino, p. 332 e P.M.M., n.88. Italiano

      Tho. Brudenell for John Partridge and Humph. Blunden in Blackfriers at the Gate going into Carter-lane and in Cornhil, London 1647 - Hardcover. Small quarto. (xxii) (1-24) 25-832 (xxivpp. 'Catalogue of Astrological Authors .' Contents & Erratta .iipp. blanks ) Collates A4; (a) - (c) 4; D - PPPPP3 (no PPPPP4 - as issued). Twentieth century (?) full-leather binding, raised bands and gilt title-label to spine, boards have period-style decorations in blind. Frontispiece portrait of Lilly and numerous woodcut diagrams, charts etc. in text. Without doubt the most significant work of the foremost 17th century English astrologer, the Leicestershire-born William Lilly (1602 - 1681), who famously predicted the Great Fire of London in 1666. "Christian Astrology," is renowned as the most definitive work on horary astrology ever written in English, and remains the cornerstone of any collection of works on astrology. The "Christian" of the title would appear to be largely camouflage - presumably placed there to protect the author from suggestions that he was a heretic dabbling in the diabolic arts. As with all copies of the First Edition, the pagination is eccentric, but this copy has been carefully collated against other copies, including that in the British Library ('British Museum'), and is complete save for one leaf of the table of contents at the rear, which has been replaced in facsimile. The boards are lightly rubbed and there are a couple of light scrapes to the rear board, but other wise they are clean and fresh. The text block is generously margined: unusually so. The frontispiece portrait appears to have been laid down, possibly on a preceeding blank, and is quite darkened and chipped, with an old reinforcement to inner margin. Neat early astrological diagram on (blank) verso of title-page, and page of notes of similar vintage on final blank. A few early marginal notes, and one old repair to upper section of pp. 375/6 resulting in the loss of a few words. Pages (xvii-xviii) of the Table of Contents at rear wanting and replaced in facsimile. The pages are generally well-thumbed, particularly so at the fore-edge, where they also show occasional chipping and short tears. Page edges, title-page and frontispiece very darkened, the rest of pages also unevenly darkened, although not so heavily. Occasional smudges, light stains and other signs of use throughout. Obviously much used, but the pages remain supple and the binding strong, and with a little care the volume will serve at least another three hundred and thirty years. About VG.

        De armillis Veterum, praesertim Danorum, Schedion. Accessit Olai Wormii, de aureo Cornu ad F. Licetum Responsio.

      Hafniae (Copenhagen), Melchior Marzan, 1647. Small 8vo. Later brown half calf from ab. 1800 with blindstamped lettering to spine. Spine worn at capitals and hinges. A bit of browning and brownspotting. Contemporary owner's inscription to title-page, dated "1648" and signed Justus Bertram. Marginal notes in the same hand to a couple of pages. Woodcut vignettes and initials. Six woodcut illustrations in the text, one full-page. (16), 128 pp. ¶ The very rare first edition of Bartholin's first non-scientific publication, his important work on Nordic bracelets, which helped form the basis for the study of Scandinavian jewelry. The work also contains Worm's 16 pp. long response to Licetus' 1645 interpretation of the Golden Horn of Gallehus. Thomas Bartholin and Ole Worm were two of the leading physicians of their time, both splendid and gifted polymaths, whose knowledge and interests reached far beyond their original field. The present work represents a unique combination of their personal interests combined with their scientific knowledge, through which they present us with a valuable approach to the golden artifacts of their heritage. The first edition of the work is of great scarcity. It became highly popular and influential, and in 1676, a new edition appeared, in Amsterdam, followed by a title-issue in 1676. Thomas Bartholin (1616-1680) was one of the leading physicians of his time, now remembered, among many other things, as the discoverer of the lymphatic system. He "was the most celebrated physician of his period in Denmark and perhaps in all of Europe". (Kronick, p. 81). He is considered "a typical representative of the "Curiosi naturae" of the 17th century with all their learning, diligence and insatiable spirit of curiosity... He belonged with all his heart to the learned period, and yet he made an anatomical-physiological discovery of high mark when he found, and demonstrated, a hitherto entirely unknown vascular system in animals, and later in man - the lymphatic." (Meisen, p. 25). He was a hugely influential and extremely productive man. Apart from his seminal discovery of the lymphatic system, he wrote a number of highly influential treatises, published a series of very influential anatomical papers, published his vast correspondence with other scientists, which has the character of a scientific archive at a time when there were not yet periodicals of natural science, provided us with the most extensive information about medicine in Denmark and about the conditions of the physicians, called attention to the significance of pathological anatomy, etc., etc.,Ole Worm (Olaus Wormius) (1588-1655) was a famous Danish polymath, who was widely travelled and who had studied at a range of different European universities. Like many of the great intellectuals of the Early Modern era, Worm's primary occupation was as a physician, for which he gained wide renown. He later became court doctor to King Christian IV of Denmark. In 1621, Worm had become professor of physics, but already the year before, in 1620, had he begun the famous collection that would become one of the greatest cabinets of curiosites in Europe (and one of the first museums) and which would earn him the position as the first great systematic collector (within natural history) in Scandinavia. It was his then newly begun collection that enabled him, as professor of physics, to introduce demonstrative subject teaching at the university, as something completely new. He continued building and adding to his magnificent collection, now known as "Museum Wormianum", throughout the rest of his life. Worm's fascination for antiquarian subjects not only resulted in his famous "Museum Wormianum", but also in a deep fascination with early Scandinavian and runic literature and the history and meaning of runestones. These monuments found throughout Scandinavia, were carved with runic inscriptions and set in place from about the fourth to the twelfth centuries. In most cases, they are burial headstones, presumably for heroes and warriors.Worm published works on the runic calendar, translations of runic texts and explications of folklore associated with the runestone histories and he wrote the most important treatises ever published on the Golden Horn. For Danes, the Golden Horns, discovered on 1639 and 1734 respectively, with their amazing, complicated, and tragic story, constitute the Scandinavian equivalent to the Egyptian pyramids and have been the object of the same kind of fascination here in the North, causing a wealth of fantastical interpretations, both historical, literary, mystical, linguistic, and artistic. Thesaurus: 353.

Bindet med lettere brugsspor og lidt krakeleringer på ryg. Kobberstukket portræt af Paulli (efter Karel van Mander), kobberstukket titelblad afbildende gudinden Flora siddende i en portal hvorigennem der er udsigt til byens tårne. Disse kobbere er forstærlkede på bagsiden. Med alle 4 kobberstukne deltitelblade, de såkaldte årstidskobbere. 2 blade omkantede. Et par læg i midten med brunskjold i indre margin. De sidste 25 blade i billeddelen med en brunplet i indre margin og nogle med svage skjolder. (36),(786 (= fol 1-393)),(94) pp. samt 376 helsides træsnit af planter på 188 blade. Med de 4 deltitelblade som hører til billeddelen .Til slut kolofonbladet med Plantin's helsides træskårne bogtrykkermærke, forstærket på bagsiden. Registerbladene med brugsspor (94) pp. omfatter 4 registre, 3 sprogregistre (latin, tysk, dansk) og et "sygdomsregister". ¶ Den sjældne originaludgave af det første danske Herbarium, der som titelbladet angiver både skulle tjene som en botanik, men også som en lægebog. Bogen er et af 16oo-tallets finest udstyrede danske værker. I et brev dateret 1645 opfordrer Christian IV Collegium Medicum til at forfatte et værk, som skulle indeholde allehånde råd mod sygdomme, og oplysning om, hvor folk kunne finde urterne således at de uden de store omkostninger kunne kurere sig selv når sygdom opstod. Kollegiet overdrog opgaven hermed til Simon Paulli. En af grundene til, at bogen kom i et så fint udstyr er, at forlæggeren Balthasar Moret fra Plantin-trykkeriet i Antwerpen overlod de af ham ejede botaniske træsnit, som tidligere havde været anvendt i Tabermontanus' værker, til bogens illustrationsdel. Da teksten i vid udstrækning bygger på Dodonæus' værk, er kun 224 af de 380 arter som beskrives, danske. - Nissen BBI: 1497. - Birkelund: 50. - Bibl. Danica II:188.

        Liguria, o Stato della Republica di Genova

      Artist: Janssonius Johann ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1647 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restoration at centerfold; - size (in cm): 38 x 53; - description: Map shows Ligiria with the coast of Genua; - vita of the artist: "Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

        Illustration from 'Insects of Surinam.'

      Amsterdam: 18th century. Hand-colored copperplate engraving on paper. Plate 31 from Dissertatio de Generatione et Metamorphosibus Insectorum Surinamensium by A. Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717) and Johanna Helena Herolt (1668-1773). Merian is a remarkable figure among natural history artists. Already a successful and published illustrator of insects, she and her younger daughter, Dorothea, left Holland for Surinam in 1701, where she compiled hundreds of drawings of insects and flowers for her landmark Metamorphosis Insectorum Surnamensium. It remains one of the most decorative yet factual works of Natural History.

        Insulæ Americanæ In Oceano Septentrionali. cum Terris adiacentibus.

      [Amsterdam, 1647] - Copper engraved with hand colour 380 x 525 mm From Blaeu's 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'. German text on verso. A decorative map of the West Indies and the Gulf of Mexico, heavily based on Hessel Gerritsz' 1631 map of the same region. The map illustrates the Caribbean, Florida, the south-east coast of the United States, Central America, and the north coast of South America. The title is featured in the upper left corner within a cartouche supported by two putti, and surrounded by various animals native to the Americas, including a turtle and an iguana. The Blaeu family were one of the most famous publishers of maps, globes and atlases during the seventeenth-century. Cartographers, globe makers and booksellers, the Blaeu business flourished in Amsterdam for over 40 years, until a fire destroyed their premises in 1672. They lost all of their plates, prints and stock, which effectively ruined the firm. Willem Blaeu founded the business in 1596. It initially functioned as a globe and instrument makers, but soon expanded into maps, topography and sea charts. The Atlas Novus was Willems great work; a major work which intended to include the most up-to-date maps of the entire world. He issued the first two volumes in 1635, but died in 1638 before the atlas was completed. The running of the business was passed on to his sons Johannes and Cornelius, in addition to the role of the official cartographer of the East India Company. After the death of Cornelis in 1644, Johannes continued the business alone and established his own reputation as a great mapmaker. Johannes completed his father's grand project in 1655 with the sixth and final volume of the Atlas Novus. He also produced the Tooneel der Steden van der Vereenighde Nederlanden in 1649-1653, as well as a similar set of Italian town plans which were published in 1663. Condition: Vertical centre fold as issued. Good impression, although a few areas of light discolouration and foxing.

[img-2574-left-large_default] First edition of a manual of military architecture treating both permanent fortifica­tions and field de­fence, in which occurs the first historical account of the genesis of bastions. Matthias Dögen studied mathematics at the univer­sity of Frankfurt an der Oder and sci­ences at Leiden, entered the service of the Admiralty at Amsterdam, and in 1641 became the agent there of Friedrich Wilhelm von Brandenburg. He became convinced that geome­try can provide perfect, invincible fortifi­cations. This manual is his only published work and on it rests his reputation, since the oft-repeated claim that he built fortifications at Spandau is now disputed. The book subsequently was printed in German and French trans­lations (both also at Amsterdam). 1 [img-2575-left-large_default] Engraved plan of the fortifications of Wolfenbüttel (platemark 205 × 290 mm) The book features a frontispiece engraved by Theodor Dirck Matham (1606-1676) and two series of plates, geometric figures with details of fortifica­tions or apparatus used in build­ing, and a sequence of topographical plans. The most attractive plans are those of cities bordering on water, such as Breda, Mannheim, Antwerp, Geneva, and Ostende. The plans of Stralsund, Küstrin, Wolfenbüttel, and Spandau are said to be based on manuscript materi­als. 2 Six of the topographical plates were used two years later, in 1649, for Blaeu's town book of The Netherlands.
