Royal folio (44 x 27.5 cm). With engraved title-page, engraved author's portrait, 60 engraved plates and 5 engraved vignettes. Contemporary red half roan.

      Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 591 note; Nissen, ZBI 3519; cf. E. Reitsma, Maria Sibylla Merian, pp. 207-210. Second edition, in the original Dutch, of a monumental and splendidly illustrated account of Ambonese and other East Indian marine specimens excluding vertebrate fish, with scientifically accurate engravings drawn by Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) apparently in the year of the death of the owner, Rumphius. The 60 large engraved plates show crustaceans, sea urchins, sand-dollars, starfish, shellfish, barnacles and coral, along with crystals, minerals, amber, fossils and even some man-made artefacts. Some plates show one large figure, others more than twenty small ones. Its precise descriptions and information on habitat anticipate modern marine biology.Rumphius, a German physician and naturalist, worked for the Dutch East India Company (VOC) from 1652 to his death, mostly on Ambon in the Moluccas. The illustrations never bore Merian's name (only those of the engravers), but she mentioned them in a 1702 letter, Zacharias Conrad von Uffenbach saw them at her house in 1711 and wrote that she drew them, and her drawings survive in St Petersburg.Slightly creased, otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed, leaving broad margins. Binding slightly rubbed and sides a bit soiled, but still firm and good.

        Gladiolus maximus, Bulba rubra Promont . , Radix tuber faciae . . Plate 66.

      Florilegium. Amsterdam 1647 - Copper engraving. Later colour. Size: 21 x 33.5 cm. (8½ x 13 inches). Fine condition, good margins. This beautiful print shows a gladiolus plant, bulb leaves and flowers, and two tubers. The designs are beautifully balanced on the page and the captions elegantly inscribed. Emanuel Sweert was prefect of the gardens of the Emperor Rudolf II in Prague. His Florilegium was first printed in Frankfurt by Kempner in 1612 -1614. It was originally a sales catalogue for plants and bulbs from Sweert's gardens, to be sold at fairs in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, but now these very attractive engravings are regarded as fine examples of 17th century botanical illustration and are much collected. Engraved by JANSSON, Jan.

Precede l'opera dedica a Luigi XIV. Prima edizione di questo curioso trattato militare, vero e proprio tour de force della tipografia a colori. Con 48 incisioni (spesso firmate con il monogramma ''CR'') in rame a piena pagina n.t. di soldati e oltre 400 illustrazioni tipografiche (alcune su ff. ripiegati) in due o tre colori, testatine, finalini ed iniziali istoriate. I soldati sono raffigurati mentre imparano a destreggiarsi con le armi. Estienne Mignon inoltre invent? e perfezion? questo particolare metodo basato su piccoli stampi quadrati, rotondi e rettangolari di metallo per simulare, tramite l'ausilio anche di differenti colori (rosso, giallo e nero), i possibili schieramenti delle truppe sul campo di battaglia.

         [ Watercolour of a wallflower and a double hyacinth, with inchworm moths, larvae and pupae].[Amsterdam, ca. 1700]. Watercolour drawing (38 x 29 cm) on extremely fine white parchment, said to be uterine lamb, showing a wallflower and a double hyacinth with two inchworm moths in the air (2 different species) and two inchworms and two pupae on the leaves and flowers. Framed.

      Cf. Reitsma, Maria Sibylla Merian & dochters, ill. 110 (p. 147); Wettengl, Maria Sibylla Merian 1647-1717, kunstenares en natuuronderzoekster, no. 120 (ill. 44 on p. 85). Characteristic original watercolour botanical drawing by Johanna Helena Herolt (1668-post 1721), the eldest daughter of Maria Sibylla Merian and Johann Andreas Graff. It shows a wallflower (Cheiranthus cheiri) and double hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis) with two inchworm moths (Geometriae) in the air, two inchworms and two pupae. She probably drew it in Amsterdam around 1700. Though she still remains in the shadow of her mother, she was a fine flower and insect artist in her own right and there is growing appreciation of her work. Her watercolours, more baroque than her mother's and often with brighter colours, radiate vigour and vivacity: the flowers, painted with intensity in every detail, really come to life. Reitsma, p. 135, notes that the prices for the flower watercolours increased with the number of insects, so the present watercolour must have been unusually expensive.Characteristic watercolour in fine state of preservation. Herolt herself may have revised the upper part of the hyacinth.

        Grammaire Latine. Contenant une méthode facile pour décliner et conjuguer : avec une syntaxe courte, raisonnée familièrement. Et de plus la Conjugaison des Verbes françois réguliers et irréguliers. Dédiée au Roy. Par Jean Meslier, cy-devant Principal du College de Laon à Laon.

      François Pelican, Sébastien Feuge, Paris 1647 - In-4 de (4)-96-20 pp., chargrin vert, dos orné à nerfs, chiffre en écoinçons, armes sur les plats, double filet d'encadrement, tranches dorées (reliure du XIXe siècle). Édition originale. Une des toutes premières grammaires latines rédigée, expliquée et détaillée en français par Jean Meslier latiniste, helléniste éditeur de textes grecs, également principal du Collège de Laon au XVIIe siècle. « La grammaire latine scolaire est traditionnellement rédigée en latin. C'est le cas du Despautère, le manuel des jésuites français, qui continueront à l'utiliser jusqu'au XVIIIe siècle ; mais dès le XVIIe siècle des éditions plus ou moins bilingues sont mises à la disposition des élèves. Un progrès considérable est réalisé au milieu du XVIIe siècle quand Claude Lancelot offre aux élèves de Port-Royal sa Nouvelle méthode (1644) et son Abrégé (1654) en français. Comme le fait remarquer l'auteur, les expressions latines utilisées dans ces grammaires « sont souvent plus difficiles à apprendre aux enfants que les choses mêmes qu'on leur veut faire savoir ». Avec Lancelot c'est déjà la grammaire française qui entre subrepticement à l'école. Au lieu des déclinaisons totalement latines Haec Musa, Hujus Musae etc., qui infligeaient au nom latin un "article" (hic, haec, hoc) qui n'a jamais existé, il aligne des séries du type Mus-a, la Muse ; Mus-ae, de la Muse, etc. où le latin se comprend immédiatement à partir du français et où la déclinaison latine est associée à la "déclinaison" du nom français. Son contemporain Jean Meslier va même un peu plus loin en détachant la déclinaison française de la déclinaison latine : « On joint d'ordinaire la déclinaison du nom français à celle du nom latin, et les fait-on apprendre toutes deux ensemble aux enfants, ce qui les embarrasse. Je les sépare donc pour plus grande netteté, et commence par la française (?) : nominatif le frère, génitif du frère datif au frère accusatif comme le nominatif etc. » (André Chervel, Histoire de l'enseignement du français du XVIIe au XXe siècle). Exemplaire rogné un peu court, légers frottements sur la reliure. Exemplaire relié aux armes et au chiffre du grand bibliophile espagnol Joachim Gomez de la Cortina, marquis de Morante (1805-1868) dont la vaste bibliothèque fut dispersée à Paris en 1872.

        The historie of the holy warre; by Thomas Fuller, B.D. prebendarie of Sarum, late of Sidney Colledge in Cambridge; [bound with] The Holy State [and the Profane State]

      Cambridge: printed by Roger Daniel, and are to be sold by John Williams at the signe of the Crown in Pauls Church-yard , 1647 / 1648. Full Calf. Fine. Small Folio: [16], 286, [28, chronological table and index]pp, with additional engraved title page depicting the crusades and folding map of Palestine; [8],189 [124 mis-numbered 104], 200-394,435-510 (pagination is irregular, per ESTC Citation No. R6571, but text is continuous), with additional engraved title-page and 20 engraved portraits.

A Fine copy, tightly bound, pages fresh and bright, with excellent impressions of the plates; minor marginal staining to first few leaves, repairs to explanatory leaf opposite first frontispiece. Pforzheimer 390 and 92 (for first editions). Lowndes 847 (citing this edition of The Holy State as "best"). Wither to Prior 386 and 387. Wing F2438 and F2444. Allibone, p. 643. The Holy War is the third edition, with re-engraved title page (Pforzheimer). The Holy State is the second edition, enlarged. Based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources, The Holy War is the first modern history of the crusades in English. In his judgment, the Papacy, in waging them, had spent European lives and wealth for nothing more than a faraway plot of land and a few relics. The Holy State and The Profane State, Fuller's celebrated studies in virtue and vice—"the most popular and characteristic of all his books" (ODNB)—provides rule of conduct, offering as exemplars a rich collection of model characters, along with short biographies of historical figures from Queen Elizabeth and Sir Francis Drake to St. Augustine and Joan of Arc. Allibone calls it, "Perhaps . . . the best of his works; and certainly [it] displays to better advantage than any his original and vigorous powers of thinking."

In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C. ( United East India Company)in 1633 he died in 1638. leaving the company to his sons Joan and Cornelius Of Cornelius little is know; his name appearing on in the prefaces of books and atlases only until c1645. Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635. (preface dated 10-3-1634) two volumes. The final edition comprising again two volumes with 109 & 99 maps respectively with German text also published 1635; an edition with Dutch text, (preface dated 22-4-1635) 104 & 103 maps; French text( preface dated 1-7-1635) 105 & 103 maps; and with Latin text (preface dated "ipsis Aprillis")105 & 102 maps. In 1640, after Willem's death a Third volume with French text and comprising 58 maps of Italy and 8 of Greece, was published; later the same year an edition was produced with Latin text. Still in 1640, variant editions in both languages were issued with an appendix of 4 maps of the British Isles as a precursor to the Fourth volume, which would be a complete description thereof. In 1645 the Fourth volume, "Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas, Mis en lumiere par Guillaume et Jean Bleau. Quartiesme Partie. " with a dedication to " A la serinissme Princesse Henriette-Marie Reine de la Grande Bretagne, France & Yrlande. " was published; preface dated 1 October 1645. This volume consisted of 58 maps with description of all the British Isles. The "Atlas Novus" was eventually extended to six volumes with the addition of a fifth volume, Scotland in 1654 and the following year a sixth the "Atlas Sinensis"of Martini. Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time. Blaeu eventually updated and extended the "Theatrum" producing the "Atlas Major" in various formats from 9-12 volumes Koeman1, Bl 16A [135(Lll)] Europe Central Europe Switzerland Helvetia

HAPPEL Eberhard Werner Guerner (1647-1690) Schriftsteller, Polyhistor u. Historiker. Der Sohn eines lutherisch reformierten Pfarrers studierte ab 1663 Mathematik, Medizin und später auch Jura in Marburg. Seit 1668 lebte er in Magdeburg, Harburg u. zuletzt in Hamburg, wo er seine schriftstellerische Tätigkeit aufnahm. Einem einjährigen Aufenthalt in Kiel, folgte 1674-79 eine Anstellung in Holstein. Danach kehrte er nach Hamburg zurück und lebte dort als Lehrer und Schriftsteller, bis er ebenda im Alter von 42 Jahren verstarb. Er schrieb umfangreiche höfisch-galante Geschichtsromane und gilt als einer der großen Romanschriftsteller des späten 17. Jahrhunderts. Goed. schreibt dazu wenig schmeichelhaft: "Seine Romane waren ihrer Zeit ebenso beliebt, wie die Luise Mühlbach in neuerer Zeit und ebenso wertlos wie diese." Daneben trat er als Übersetzer des Valerius Maximus und Autor historischer Werke, insbesondere der "Relationes curiosae", hervor. Vorliegender Roman erschien posthum. In der nicht unterzeichneten Vorrede wird H. nicht ausdrücklich als tot bezeichnet, doch deutlich gesagt, daß in seiner Manier fortgeschrieben sei. Es erschienen dann noch 2 weitere Werke unter seinem Namenschiffre im gleichen Verlag. Es fehlt eine in den Anweisungen für den Buchbinder angeführte Tabelle. Das Porträt zeigt den bayrischen Kurfürsten Maximilian II. Emanuel, der der Widmungsträger des vorliegenden Werkes ist.

        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. Al Serenissimo Ferdinando II Granduca di Toscana

      presso gli Heredi di Evangelista Dozza, 1647. In-4° antico (238x170mm), pp. (18), 432 (le prime due parti dell'opera in numerazione continua e in un unico volume), legatura settecentesca m. pelle con titolo, filetti e fregi floreali in oro su dorso a nervi. Antiporta allegorica incisa su rame da Bloemaert su invenzione del Canini (alla quale si ispira il Livaldini per il suo sonetto), mancante alla quasi totalità degli esemplari. La vita di ogni artista reca in principio, a tre quarti di pagina, un ritratto xilografico dell'artista in questione riprodotto fedelmente sugli stessi legni dell'edizione Giunti del 1568, per un totale di oltre 90 incisioni xilografiche. Finalini ornati e figurati su legno, iniziali ornate ed istoriate. Dedica a stampa (datata da Bologna, 21 marzo 1647) dell'editore del testo, Carlo Manolessi, al Granduca di Toscana, Ferdinando II, in principio del primo volume, ed altra avvertenza del Manolessi ai lettori. Al cominciamento dello stesso volume, l'ode di Giovan Pietro Bellori "Sopra l'Ara dell'Eternità" ed il sonetto di Giuseppe Livaldini "Sopra il Frontespizio del Vasari disegnato dal Signor Gio. Angelo Canini". Cerniere restaurate, mancanze marginali alla prima carta di dedica, alle pp. 37-38 e 373-374; numerose pp. posposte, aloni marginali ad alcune pp. In buono stato complessivo. Il solo primo volume della terza edizione in assoluto dell'opera, la seconda figurata (la narrazione giunge qui sino a Luca Signorelli). Importante riedizione 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. Cfr. Moreni, II, 430; Gamba, 1725 (cita indirettamente questa ristampa attraverso le parole di Luigi Lanzi); Brunet, V, 1096; Graesse, VII, 264, note; Sidney Churchill, "Bibliografia Vasariana", passim.

        Due uomini a cavallo

      1647 - Acquaforte, circa 1647/50, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Stato unico. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "agnello pasquale nel doppio cerchio" (Heawood 2838), con sottili margini, minime ossidazione, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Conosciuto come il Bolognese, Grimaldi era probabilmente nato in questa città intorno al 1606 e, in effetti, la produzione degli ultimi anni fu fortemente influenzata dai suoi primi contatti con la tradizione dei Carracci. Grimaldi realizzò oltre cinquanta incisioni di paesaggi, tutti fortemente influenzati dalla formula paesaggistica di Annibale Carracci e Domenichino. Le sue stampe, così come i dipinti e i disegni di vedute, sono caratterizzate da un approccio alla natura estremamente regolare e controllato, enfatizzando le linee orizzontali, verticali e i piani. Alla stregua dei suoi modelli bolognesi, Grimaldi usava spesso masse rocciose, o di terra, sporgenti, file di alberi posizionate strategicamente, e architetture posizionate nei piani per disporre il suo schema organizzativo. Etchings, about 1647/50, signed on plate at the bottom left. Only state. Magnificent proof, rich tone, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "paschal lamb in double circle" (Heawood 2838), with thin margins, low oxidation, otherwise in excellent condition. Known as the Bolognese, Grimaldi was probably born in this city around 1606 and, in fact, the production of recent years was strongly influenced by his first contacts with the tradition of the Carracci. Grimaldi created over fifty etchings of landscapes strongly influenced by the formula landscape by Annibale Carracci and Domenichino. His prints, as well as paintings and drawings of views, are characterized by an approach to nature extremely smooth and controlled, emphasizing the horizontal, vertical and plans. As in the case of its models Bologna, Grimaldi often used rock mass, or land, jutting lines of trees positioned strategically positioned architectures and plans to have its organizational scheme.

Het is echter waarschijnlijker dat het hier om een vanaf 1648 los uitgegeven blad gaat.We zien van links naar rechts het bolwerk Rijzenhoofd, de Peperwerf, de Montelbaans-, Zuiderkerks- en Regulierstorens, de Waag op de Nieuwmarkt, ?l?hotel Dieu?(Diaconie Oude Mannen- en Vrouwenhuis, thans Hermitage Amsterdam), de Waalse Kerk, de Scheierstoren, de Oudezijdskapel, de Oude Kerk, de Beurs, de Engelse Kerk, de Vismarkt, de Dam, de Waag op de Dam, het Stadshuis met stompe toren, de St. Jacobskapel, de Nieuwe Kerk, de Roodenpoorts- en Haringpakkerstorens (?lieu ou on encaque le hareng?), de Wester- en Noorderkerk, het Bickerstorentje, de Haarlemmerpoort, de zoutziederijen (?saline ou on blanchit le sel?, tegenwoordig is hier de zoutkeetsgracht) en het Blauwhoofd. Voor de stad de ?Rivierre de lye?met daaran twee tolhuizen en de stadsherberg (?maison publique?). Het Nieuwe Waalseiland (gebouwd in 1644) is nog niet aangegeven, het gebouw op de Herenmarkt is als Westindisch Huis aangeduid (het werd in 1657 als Herenlogement ingericht). Het Westindisch Pakhuis (gebouwd in 1641) komt ook nog niet voor op de prent.Van Jean Boisseau (actief tussen 1637-1658) weten we dat hij in 1631 werkte als ?meester verluchter? [dus iemand die handschriften met miniatuurschilderingen verfraaid] en vanaf 1635 als ?afsetter?: ?Enlumineur de cartes marines?/ ?Enlumineur du Roy pour les cartes geographiques ? [kleurder van kaarten dus].Prijs: ?2.950,-.
