Leganti completo nero marocco vintage. Torna con nervi decorati con il freddo. Titoli e numeri di volume dorati. Bordi dorati. Rotelle sui tagli e interni. Acconciature intestazioni parte sfilacciata. Una coda buco di volume I. I Padri del deserto hanno esercitato un fascino sulla vita religiosa del XVII, in particolare con la riforma del contatore. Arnauld di Andilly, e figura solitaria del giansenismo si misero a capo di una traduzione degli scritti greci e latini dei Padri della Chiesa sulle famose eremiti; Una caratteristica particolare è che ci sono molti santi. Bookplate inciso ventesimo Henri Laboureur. Secondo ex libris con le armi di Justin Godart, Lione. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Editions originales de ces deux volumes ; le premier sans mention de tomaison à la date de 1647, le second portant la mention de volume second à la date de 1653 ; une vignette de titre pour chacun des tomes, mais sans le frontispice de Mellan qui n'a pas été joint à cet exemplaire au tome I. Reliures en plein maroquin noir d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés à froid. Titres et tomaisons dorées. Tranches dorées. Roulettes sur les coupes et intérieurs. Coiffes de têtes en partie élimées. Un trou en queue du tome I. Il semble y avoir des manques dans le tome II : les feuillets commencent au cahier b après la page de titre, et l'Avant propos qui se termine p. 24 finit sur APPRO sans que celui-ci soit repris dans le feuillet suivant. L'exemplaire de la Leighton Library indique en collation (4) 26 ; 742 ; il semble donc manquer un feuillet, sans doute d'approbation. Les Pères du désert ont exercé une fascination sur la vie religieuse du XVIIe, notamment avec la Contre réforme. Arnauld d'Andilly, figure du Jansénisme et solitaire lui-même s'est chargé d'un traduction des écrits grecs et latins des pères de l'église sur ces fameux anachorètes ; une des particularités est qu'on y trouve de nombreuses saintes. Le volume second contient des traduction de Rufin et de Theodoret et complète le premier volume avec les solitaires des deserts d'orient. Rare exemplaire en plein maroquin d'époque et complet des deux tomes en première édition. Ex-libris gravé du XXe Henri Laboureur. Second ex-libris aux armes de Justin Godart, lyonnais.

        L'Alcoran de Mahomet. Translaté d'Arabe en François. Paris, Antoine de Sommaville, 1647.

      1647. 4to. (10), 648 [but: 598], (4) pp. Contemp. full French speckled calf with gilt tooling and title label on spine, dentelles on inner covers. Rare first edition of "the oldest complete translation of the Qur'an into a European vernacular" (Encylopedia of the Qur'an), in a handsome copy. Du Ryer's work served as the basis for further translations of the Qur'an into English, German, Dutch, and Russian, and was instrumental in introducing Europeans to the tenets of the Muslim faith. Du Ryer was a celebrated linguist and had lived in Egypt and Turkey, where he studied classical Arabic. His introduction briefly summarizes the Muslim religion for Christian readers, noting customs such as Ramadan, circumcision, the practice of having up to four wives, the significance of Mecca and Medina, Sufi brotherhoods and wandering ascetics, and finally the Islamic recognition of Jesus as a prophet but not the son of God. A prayer printed in Arabic is included on the verso of leaf e2. - "Du Ryer's translation of the Qur'an [...] became an unparalleled literary success [...] The easy availability of the Qur'an accompanied a newfound interest in the Orient; additionally, du Ryer's translation lacked the polemical tone of previous editions, an orientation which arose mainly in ecclesiastical contexts. Du Ryer used Islamic commentaries such as al-Bayawi's Anwar al-tanzil, the Tafsir al-Jalalayan by al-Mahalli (d. 864/1459) and al-Suyu i (d. 911/1505), or an excerpt from al-Razi's (d. 606/1210) great commentary made by l-Raghi l-Tunisi (d. 715/1315) entitled al-Tanwir fi l-tafsir, quite casually in his translation, merely noting them in the margins. The deprecatory tone present in the introductory chapter, 'Sommaire de la religion des Turcs,' can be understood as an attempt at camouflage (cf. Hamilton and Richard, André du Ryer, 94f)" (Encyclopedia of the Qur'an). - Extremities and joints professionally repaired. Internally fresh and clean, a very good copy with 19th-c. engr. bookplate of Sir Robert Sheffield, Bart., on front pastedown (one of the Sheffield baronets, likely the 4th, 1786-1862). Chauvin X, p. 126. Schnurrer 427. Fück 74. Brunet III, 1309. Encyclopedia of the Qur'an V, 347.

With an engraved title-page, engraved portrait of the author, and 60 numbered engraved plates with hundreds of figures drawn by Maria Sibylla Merian coloured in an early hand. Recased in contemporary sprinkled calf, gold-tooled board edges. Rebacked with a gold-tooled spine.

      Landwehr, VOC 951 note; Wood, p. 546; cf. E. Reitsma, Maria Sibylla Merian, pp. 207-210. Second Latin edition of a beautiful pictorial record of one of the finest early collections of East Indian marine specimens, with scientifically accurate engravings drawn by Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) apparently in the year of the death of the owner Georg Everard Rumphius (1627/28-1702). The engraved title-page and 60 illustration plates are beautifully and subtly coloured by hand in a wide variety of colours. The book excludes vertebrate fish but shows crustaceans, sea urchins, sand-dollars, starfish, shellfish, barnacles and coral, along with crystals, minerals, amber, fossils and even some man-made artefacts, such as axe heads. Some plates show one large figure, others more than twenty small ones. 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. With a marginal tear in plate XLIX, but further in very good condition and wholly untrimmed, giving generous margins. Beautifully coloured plates of crustaceans, shells, etc. that formed a landmark in the development of scientific illustration for natural history.

        De praestantia musicae veteris.

      Florence, Massa 1647 - Doni, Giovanni Battista. De praestantia musicae veteris. Libri tres dialogis comprehensi in quibus vetus ac recens musica inter se conferentur. Florence, A. Massa, 1647. 4to. [4]f + 166 (misnumb. 166)p + last blank leaf. 18th century Italian pictorial boards. First edition of this treatise on ancient music by Giovanni Battista Doni (c.1594-1647), the leading Italian baroque musical theorist. Written in the form of a dialogue in which the author shows his great learning on the subject, the work constitutes a musical lexicography including references to Monteverdi. Discussing the merits of ancient and contemporary music, Doni states his preference for ancient music. He opposes the condemnation of 16th century music by the Council of Trent. After studies in Bologna and Rome,the author had met Marin Mersenne in Paris in 1621 whilst in the service of Cardinal Corsini. Later he travelled for Cardinal Barbarini, a nephew of Pope Urban VIII who had a passionate interest in music, and in whose honour he gave his newly invented string instrument the name : `Lyra Barbarina’. Doni’s prolific musical studies are listed on the penultimate leaf of this book, revealing that only a portion were actually published.

        CORONA E PALMA MILITARE DI ARTIGLIERA, ET FORTIFICATIONI [etc.].

      1647In Venetia [Venise], Presso Antonio Bariletti, 1647. In folio (249 X 355) demi-vélin ivoire, plats de carton souple (reliure de l'époque); (4) ff. (dont titre orné d'une grande vignette gravée), 60 ff.. Ex-libris «DR» [Désiré Ruggieri] dessiné et gravé par Baticle collé sur le premier contreplat. UN RARE ET IMPORTANT TRAITÉ D'ARTILLERIE DE LA FIN DU XVIe SIÈCLE. L'ouvrage est conçu sous la forme d'un jeu de 69 questions-réponses entre deux interlocuteurs (ff. 1 à 44), suivi d'une série d'«instructions» ou «avvertimento» (ff. 45 à 58). Ces dialogues évoquent certaines idées défendues par des théoriciens de l'art militaire, pour mieux les dénigrer ensuite sur le ton de la moquerie, au profit de préceptes avancés par l'auteur. Ces dialogues et instructions concernent principalement l'artillerie, les fortifications ainsi que les FEUX D'ARTIFICES. Il s'agit de la quatrième édition, les précédentes ayant été imprimées en 1598, 1602 et 1618, toutes à Venise.

        The Character of a London-Diurnalll: With Several Select Poems: By the Same Author

      [London:] Printed in the Year, 1647, 1647. Third edition, one of at least seven editions published in 1647; this one contains 18 poems and has the running head "Poems" on page 7. Wing C-4663; Hayward 92 (also an edition of 1647); NCBEL I, 1304. Edges of the title slightly browned; fine copy.. Octavo, modern red full morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, gilt lozenge on the upper and lower boards, gilt lettering, a.e.g. The scarce first book John Cleveland (1613-1658) - "the metaphysical reductio ad absurdum" (Hayward) - one of the most popular poets of his era. It went through several editions beginning in 1644. The 18 poems are preceded by Cleveland's acerbic essay on the character of newspapers, then in their infancy: "A Diurnall is a puny Chronicle, scarce pin-feathered with the wings of time: It is a historie in Sippets; the English Iliads in a nut-shell; the Apocryphall Parliaments book of Maccabees in single sheets." Cleveland mocks the pseudonyms used by writers, accuses them of scheming and spreading lies, and compares them to Don Quixote: "Thus the Quixotes of this Age fight with the Windmill of their own heads; quell Monsters of their own creation, make plots, and then discover them . . ." Cleveland's essay on newspapers incited a pamphlet war that continued for a few years. Bookplate of Robert S. Pirie on the front free endpaper.

Relié en plein vélin souple de l'époque, dos lisse, petits calculs manuscrits anciennement annotés à la plume sur les plats. Pâle mouillure dans l'angle inférieur. TROISIEME EDITION DE CE TRES RARE OUVRAGE D'ASTRONOMIE REDIGE AU XVI SIECLE POUR CATHERINE DE PARTHENAY. François Viète quitte le barreau pour devenir le tuteur de Catherine de Parthenay. C'est l'époque où il s'intéresse particulièrement à l'astronomie, et où il rédige son premier ouvrage scientifique, qu'il donne en lecture à son élève. François Viète, the greatest French mathematician of the sixteenth century. Vieta became a key figure in its development and his influence can be seen on Descartes, on Harriot, and even on Newton and Leibniz. All his books were published privately at his own expense for distribution to his friends and are therefore notably rare. Le présent ouvrage est divisé en trois parties où Viète décrit les pays du monde et Elemens d'astronomie, des pp. 145 à 172, où il traite des étoiles et des planètes. Viète se finançait lui-même et il ne faisait imprimer ses écrits qu'à un très petit nombre d'exemplaires qu'il distribuait à ses amis. Cela explique la rareté de ses écrits. Il est considéré comme le principal précurseur de l'algèbre. La présente édition est la plus rare de cet ouvrage. Exemplaire très pur de cet ouvrage d'astronomie rare et recherché, conservé dans son vélin souple de l'époque. DSB 14, pp. 18-25 ; P.M.M., 103. ***First edition, printed in Mexico City, of one of the rarest and the most valuable Mexican grammars.

In-4, (8), 268, (4), 269-680 pages, vélin souple de l'époque (petit accroc au milieu du dos) [les deux derniers feuillets des pièces préliminaires, dont un feuillet blanc, furent reliées entre les deuxième et troisième parties]. Early illustrated work on Egyptian funeral customs, mummies and art of embalming. Peu courante première édition procurée par Giovanni Nardi du De rerum natura de Lucrèce avec un intéressant et particulièrement précoce appendice sur les funérailles des égyptiens, autrement dit sur les momies. Le grand livre de Kircher sur les égyptiens ne paraîtra que 5 ans plus tard, en 1652. "The poem's medical authority lasted in Italy until well into the seventeenth century, when one published commentator on the DRN was in fact a physician, the Florentine Giovanni Nardi. His Paraphrastica explanatio of 1647, an ambitious work ignored, or worse, by later Lucretian exegetes, examines the text from the point of view of content rather than form; and in his own scientific treatises Nardi not infrequently resorts to Lucretian quotations in the course of scientific demonstrations' (Cambridge Companion to Lucretius, pages 217-218).

        De monstris et monstrosis, quam mirabilis, bonus et iustus, in mundo administrando, sit Deus, monstrantibus.

      Haenlin & Wagner, 1647. In 16° (160x95); pagg. (16), 636, (52). Vignetta sul frontespizio inciso da W. Kilian. Dedica al duca di Baviera Massimiliano Enrico. Pergamena settecentesca muta con unghie. Rara prima edizione di questa rara opera, la più interessante e ricercata fra le tre scritte dal gesuita tedesco Georg Stengel (Augsburg 1585 - Ingolstadt 1651): tratta di mostri fantastici, mostruosità reali o difetti fisici gravi, meraviglie naturali; a questo riguardo l'autore argomenta le cause probabili e di quale parte abbia il demonio in queste espressioni naturali e nelle vicende umane. Manca alle bibliografie esoteriche. Ottimo esemplare, che presenta una cerniera un po' difettata ed una nota di possesso al frontespizio tagliata con mancanza, motivo per cui questo è rimontato su carta di supporto.

        Mercurius Batavus sive Epistolarum libri V. Opus stili, & Oratoriae studiosis apprime utile.

      Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1647. - 12mo (13 : 6.5 cm). (16, including engraved title), 540, (16) and (4 blank) p. A tiny early note on rear pastedown reading ?Mai: 11 lig. 5. den:? suggests that the book was purchased at eleven maiores (of whatever currency), and that the binding (ligatura) did cost five denarii. As Hungary was the only country where denarii were still struck throughout the 17th century, the binding seems to have been executed there. The volume remained in the region. There are two subsequent ownership inscriptions from Kronstadt (Brasso in Transylvania) on title-page: the superior judge Johann Jakob Mylius (died in 1832) and the preacher Johann Friedrich Hiemesch (1793-1869). - The text is a classic first published in four books in 1633, a fifth was added from 1642 onwards and a sixth around 1653. The present edition has no letterpress title and the dedication year is misprinted 1663 for 1643. The preliminaries match the copy digitized by the Bavarian State Library. - Vellum dust soiled, free front endpaper glued to pastedown, internally fresh. Contemporary, probably Hungarian vellum binding with blind-stamped fillets and blue edges gauffered in gilt with a star pattern. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Il fusto di una colonna

      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."

        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. Per la prima edizione, Schlosser Magnino, p. 332 e P.M.M., n. 88. Italiano

        VII Opera Misericordiae piis animis dicat Matthias Bolzetta de Cadorinis.

      1647. Patavii, Matthias Bolzetta De Cadorinis, 1647. Sette incisioni in rame più una di frontespizio. Rarissima collezione - completa - tratta da originali di Tiziano (perduti), indicato in lastra come autore delle opere da cui sono tratte le calcografie. Ogni scena, incisa in rame all'acquaforte, misura mm 154x120 circa, più ampi margini bianchi (mm. 320x215 i fogli). Maria Agnese Chiari nel catalogo "Incisioni da Tiziano", Venezia, 1982 attribuisce la raccolta a Hans Heinrich Schweitzer, anche se in due lastre a noi risulta leggibile la firma "Snizer f." e "Gio. Snizer f.". Anche il Museo Correr di Venezia - nel cui catalogo on - line siamo riusciti a rintracciare solo 3 delle 8 incisioni - le attribuisce a Schweitzer. A proposito di queste immagini cfr. l'asta Sotheby's "Arts of Europe", Londra, 3 dicembre 2013, lotto 138 (un boccale d'argento del Seicento) nella cui descrizione sono menzionate queste incisioni: "The barrel of the tankard is engraved with a continuous scene which skillfully combines at least two different images which are after lost works by Titian. The Titian - derived images: The clothing of the poor and part of the feeding scene, which straddle the tankard's handle are found with the same Latin inscription, in a 1647 Paduan publication by Mathias Bolzetta de Cadorinis, VII opera misericordiae piis animis dicat. A contemporary Swiss artist Hans Heinrich Schweitzer may have been the engraver of the images in the 1647 publication. See: Patricia Fortini Brown, Private lives in Renaissance Venice, Princeton, 2004, p. 211". Ottime condizioni di conservazione.

        Document signed ("Richard Lovelace"), appointing Isaac Hunt as Lovelace's attorney for the sale of Mungeam farm to John Mungeam of Smarden

      1647. Pen and ink on one parchment membrane (210 x 290 mm), parchment tag with armorial wax seal, three witness signatures on the dorse, including the poet's brother Dudley Lovelace. Tear in top left margin not affecting text, small portion of seal missing. In a custom red morocco-backed folding-box. Pen and ink on one parchment membrane (210 x 290 mm), parchment tag with armorial wax seal, three witness signatures on the dorse, including the poet's brother Dudley Lovelace. Rare Signature of Richard Lovelace. Extremely rare example of the signature of cavalier poet Richard Lovelace (1617-1657) - the only known privately owned example of his hand. Save for his "To Althea, from Prison", of which contemporary manuscript copies are known, Lovelace's work achieved limited popularity in his time and there is a corresponding derth of manuscript material in his hand. Only one complete manuscript in Lovelace's hand - a petition to the House of Commons - is known to exist. His signature appears on a series of 13 documents, of which this is one, relating to land transactions in Kent. CELM LoR 63.
