        Calaris Sardiniae primaria civitas et proregis sedes?

      Cabreo finemente eseguito su carta francese con filigrana databile alla metà del XVII secolo. Il foglio appareneva ad un "Album Amicorum" venduto in asta a Parigi nel dicembre 2008 e successivamente, purtroppo, diviso in singoli fogli che risultano presenti nel mercato antiquario dallo scorso gennaio. L'album era composto da una miscellanea di incisioni e manoscritti, quasi tutti raffiguranti piante delle fortificazioni delle principali città europee, con particolare attenzione alle città italiane che, a differenza delle altre opere manoscritte, sono accuratamente rifinite con acquarello dai toni verde e rosa. I cabrei risutano tutti della stessa mano, con titolo latino ed iscrizioni e commenti in lingua francese. Una sorta di album di disegno da viaggio eseguito da un anonimo autore con grandi conoscenze architettoniche e militari, con probabili finalità di studio preparatorio, probabilmente ispirato ad un opera cartografica a stampa del periodo. Le piante delle città italiane ricordano per molti elementi le opere di Jodocus Hondius II inserite nel "Nova et accurata Italiae Hodiernae descriptio" pubblicato a Leida nel 1627. La pianta di Cagliari risulta particolarmente ricca di annotazioni, con un estesa legenda con 44 richiami in basso. Ottimo stato di conservazione di questo unico documento sulla città.

        Il suicidio di Didone

      Acquaforte, circa 1650/55, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Pietro Testa. Esemplare di primo stato, edito da Giovanni Giacomo de? Rossi. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ?giglio inscritto nel cerchio? con inusuali grandi margini, strappo di carta al lato sinistro perfettamente restaurato, per il resto in eccellente stato di conservazione. La composizione raffigura Didone, morta, sulla pira dove si nota l?armatura di Enea; attorno a lei le ancelle piangono mentre sullo sfondo si intravedono le navi di Enea che lasciano Cartagine. In alto a destra si vede Giunone che invia la sua messaggera Iris, che taglia una ciocca di capelli di Didone affinché la sua anima lasci il corpo. Gli anni dopo il 1640 sono caratterizzati dal diffuso pensiero di Pietro Testa a riguardo del suicidio. Diversi studi sono noti riguardo questo lavoro e Il suicidio di Catone, che il Lucchesino incise nel 1648. Alla prematura morte di Pietro Testa, nel 1650, la composizione sul suicidio di Didone era già in stato molto avanzato, come dimostrano i numerosi disegni preparatori. Il dipinto citato nella stampa è probabilmente quello conservato nel deposito degli Uffizi, irrimediabilmente danneggiato. Tuttavia consente di capire che i disegni preparatori furono realizzati per la stampa e non per il dipinto. Eccellente esemplare. Etching, 1650/55 circa, signed at lower left. After a subject of Pietro Testa. Example of the first state, published by Giovanni Giacomo de? Rossi. Magnificent work with rich shades, printed on contemporary laid paper with ?fleur de lys in a circle? watermark, with uncommon wide margins, perfectly repaired paper tear on the left, otherwise in perfect condition. The composition depicts the dead body of Dido on a funeral pile, where can also be seen the suit of armour of Aeneas; all around, the maidservants are crying, while, in the background, the boats of the Roman hero are leaving Carthage. On upper right, there is Juno sending her female herald Iris to cut a lock of Dido?s hair, so that her soul can leave the body. The years after 1640 have been strongly influenced by Pietro Testa?s opinion about suicide. There are many famous studies about this topic, beside the Suicide of Cato, engraved by Lucchesino in 1648. After Pietro Testa untimely death, in 1650, the composition of Dido was quite ready, as the many preparatory drawings show. The painting recalled in the etching is very likely the one kept in the Uffizi, irreparably damaged. Nevertheless, it allows us to understand the preparatory drawings were realized for the print and not for the painting. Excellent example. E. Cropper, Pietro Testa Prints and Drawings, pp. 268/70, 125; Nagler 11. Dimensioni 460x330.

        Paesaggio con tre piccole barche nel fiume

      Acquaforte, 1650 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con parziale filigrana non identificabile, sottili margini, 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. Si trasferì a Roma ventenne e nel 1636 venne ammesso all?Accademia di San Luca, della quale poi divenne principe (presidente) nel 1666. Nell?Urbe lavorò ad una serie di commissioni importantissime, principalmente paesaggi, per altrettanti patroni illustri tra cui tre papi. Accrebbe in questo modo la sua reputazione, anche a livello internazionale, tanto che nel 1648 venne chiamato a Parigi, dove lavorò per tre anni a progetti decorativi nel Louvre, nel palazzo del Cardinal Mazzarino e nella chiesa dei Gesuiti. 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. Il suo modo di utilizzare l'ago da incisione era sempre molto controllato e regolare; sebbene occasionalmente si sia lasciato tentate dallo spontaneo romanticismo alla maniera di Dughet, le sue stampe, diversamente da quelle del maestro, raramente trasmettono un senso di confidenza con la natura. Sebbene il suo stile paesaggistico affondi le sue radici nella tradizione classicizzante di Annibale Carracci e Domenichino, esso riflette anche altre tendenze dell'epoca relative alla pittura di paesaggi, ovvero quella veneta, quella settentrionale e parte del romanticismo di Dughet e Salvator Rosa. Etching, 1650 circa, signed at lower left. Magnificent work, rich shade, printed on contemporary laid paper with partial, unidentified watermark, thin margins, in excellent condition. Grimaldi realized more than fifty landscape etchings, all deeply influenced by the landscape formula of Annibale Carracciand Domenichino. His impressions, like the paintings and the landscape drawings, are characterized by a regular and controlled approach to nature, stressing the horizontal and vertical lines and the planes. Like his Bolognese models, Grimaldi used quite often rocky or earth masses, strategic rows of trees and architectures in planes to set his organizational scheme. His way to use the etching needle was always regular and controlled; though he occasionally indulged in the spontaneous romantic manner of Dughet, his prints, unlike his master?s, rarely convey a sense of confidence with nature. The architectural drawings and the figurative paintings of Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi have been completely overshadowed by his landscapes, drawings and etchings. Known as ?il Bolognese?, Grimaldi was in all probability born in the city around 1606 and, as a matter of fact, his later production was strongly influenced by his first contacts with the Carracci tradition. He moved to Rome when twenty and in 1636 he was admitted to the Accademia di San Luca, of which he became principe in 1666. Once in Rome, he worked on several important commissions, mainly landscapes, for many famous patrons, among them three popes. His reputation grew very fast this way; in 1648 he was called in Paris to work on decorative project inside the Louvre, in the palazzo of Cardinal Mazzarino and the Jesuit church. He came back to Rome in 1651 and he lived there until his death, in 1680. Although his landscape style is rooted in the classical tradition of Annibale Carracci and Domenichino, it also recalls other tendencies about landscape painting of the time, such as the Venetian, the Northern and the Romantic tradition of Gaspar Dughet and Salvator Rosa. Grimaldi worked with Dughet on the realization of the incredible cycle of landscape frescoes in San Martino ai Monti in Rome. Bartsch 33; Reed & Wallace, Italian etchers of the Renaissance & Barocque, p. 179. Dimensioni 312x221.

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      [Amsterdam] [1650] Plate mark 49 x 38 cm. The whole sheet 48 x 58 cm. Original hand colouring. Latin text at the back. Slight browning to the upper right and left part of the image. A tear in the upper margin has been repaired with tape at the verso, resulting in some stains, not affecting the image area. A split in the fold outside the image area repaired. Some staining and dirt to the margins. A pinhole in one of the islands in the Chesapeake bay.. A fine map in original hand colouring. This is the Hondius / Blaeu derivative of John Smith´s 1612 map of Virgnia and Chesapeake Bay. The Smith map was the prototype for all maps during the following sixty years. In 1618 Hondius created the first and most famous of all the derivatives. When he died in 1629 the copper plate was bought by Blaeu who continued to pubish the map unalltered except for the name change to "Guiljemi Blaeuw" in the cartouche. The present map has latin text at the back and was published in 1650. This is one of the most imporrtant american maps ever published, quite accuratly describing the Chesapeake Bay area with its many rivers, indian names and villages as well as the settlement of Jamestown. In the left upper corner the interior of Chief Powhatans lodge and to the right a full lngth indian warrior. (Verner, Map Collectors Circle No. 45. p. 30. 1968)

      London: Printed for Henry Seile, over against St Dunstans Church in Fleet Street. 1650. First Edition. Hardcover. Nineteenth century catspaw calf, boards with double ruled gilt border, contrasting spine lable bearing gilt titles, marbled endpapers, note on title page identifying A.W. as Anthony Weldon, damp mark to top fifth of pp16-48 but text remains clear and bright, small loss from lower corner of leaf A2 not affecting text. 8vo, A-A4 B-O6. Wing S645. , Sir William Sanderson's major achievement lay in his historical writings, which, like most historical writing from the middle of the 17th century was partisan in nature.By his own account Sanderson suffered in the Royalist cause during the civil wars and was knighted by King Charles II at the restoration. This work, Sanderson's most famous, was written in response to "The Court and Character of King James," a memoir written by Anthony Weldon and published postumously. Weldon had been a courtier in the court of King James but had become disaffected, becoming a member of the Kentish parliamentary county committee. Aulicus appeared anonymously but Sanderson admitted his authorship in the preface of his later and more substantial work, "Compleat History of the Lives and Reigns of Mary Queen of Scotland, and of her Son James" (1656). , 8vo , [viii] 205 [1] pp .

Arild Huitfeld (1546-1609) var dansk historiker och statsman. Han föddes i Norge och blev 1586 riksråd och rikskansler. Hans stora verk om de danska kungarna var länge normgivande för uppfattningen av den danska historien. Eric Götlin (1744-1820) var numismatiker och historiker, professor i vältalighet vid Uppsala universitet och prefekt för universitetets mynt- och medaljsamling åren 1781-1820.

Kürner, 1650. First edition of this beautifully illustrated German Baroque work; it is the first book printed in Austria on equestrian riding schools. Vienna has had a long tradition, stemming from the Spanish Riding School founded in 1562 by Habsburg Emperor Maximilian II, of the highest level of horsemanship and this handsome book is part of that notable tradition. The Lipizzaner stallions of today, which demonstrate classical dressage, trace their roots to the Spanish Riding School. Galiberto was a Neapolitan count and riding master to Emperor Ferdinand IV, King of Hungary and Bohemia (his finely engraved coat-of-arms is on the verso of the title-page). The present work is divided into three parts. The first is devoted to the proper training of horses and here we find a discussion of the best sources for horses including Spain and Naples (the sources for the finest of the Lippizans), Turkey, and Pomerania. The second deals with horsemanship and the third is concerned with illnesses of horses and veterinary medicine. The well-engraved plates depict horse training scenes, harnesses, bridles, spurs, and other equestrian equipment. The fine folding plate show the horse and its anatomy. A very fine copy in fresh condition. .

      Madrid. Aug. 6, 1650.. 2pp. Folio. In a green levant morocco case. [with:] Philip IV of Spain: [MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED WITH THE ROYAL SIGN MANUAL, TO ADMIRAL DON PEDRO PORTER CASANATE, IN REPLY TO THE LATTER'S LETTER CONCERNING THE DISCOVERY OF THE GULF OF CALIFORNIA]. Madrid. Aug. 6, 1659. 2pp. Folio. In a green levant morocco case. Don Pedro Porter Casanate was the dominant figure in the exploration of the Gulf of California from 1635 to 1653. Born in Spain in 1604, he joined the Spanish navy early in life, serving with distinction against pirates in the Atlantic and Caribbean. In 1634 he published the fruits of his observations on navigation as REPARO A ERRORES DE LA NAVEGACION ESPANOLA.... Shortly thereafter he shifted his operations to the Gulf of California, where he led an expedition in 1635 under orders of the Viceroy. Evidently intrigued by this voyage, Casanate petitioned the Crown for permission to explore further, and in 1640 he was granted a license to "explore the Gulf of California without limit to leagues or time." Porter pushed his explorations forward, but was handicapped by a lack of funds, since the Crown would grant him no money nor appoint him to the various patronage positions he requested, which might have supplied funds in a more round-about way. Nonetheless, he managed in 1648-50 to explore the upper reaches of the Gulf of California, especially the Baja side. It is at that point that these two manuscripts were written. The first is a letter from the King of Spain, Philip IV, to the Viceroy of New Spain concerning Casanate and his proposed expedition. The King summarizes his previous arrangements with the explorer, instructs the Viceroy to obtain detailed reports, to ascertain the cost and means of the expedition, and if Casanate discovers anything valuable, such as a pearl fishery, to come to his assistance. On the same day, Philip IV writes to Casanate (the second letter), denying him the judgeship of Sinaloa, but at the same time encouraging him in his explorations and demanding a full report once they are concluded. In short, while the Crown and the Council of the Indies were willing to do very little to aid the explorer, they were quite willing to benefit from his excursions. Certainly two of the earliest and most important documents pertaining to the Gulf of California and the discovery of Baja.

        Seven Scarce Biographical Pamphlets

      13 13, 1650 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A collection of seven scarce seventeenth and eighteenth-century pamphlets detailing the life, works, letters,deeds and crimesof various men of merit and dishonour. Includes: 1650-London-John Stafford: An Exact Narration of the Life and Death of the Reverend and Learned Prelate, and Painfull Divine, Lancelot Andrews, Late Bishop of Winchester. With a portrait frontispiece. Lancelot Andrewes (1555 25 September 1626) was an English bishop and scholar, who held high positions in the Church of England during the reigns of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I. During the latter's reign, Andrewes served successively as Bishop of Chichester, Ely and Winchester and oversaw the translation of the Authorized Version (or King James Version) of the Bible. 1665-London-William Miller: The Life and Death of Pompey the Great. With all his Glorious Victories and Triumphs. As Also the Life and Death of Artaxerxes Mnemon, one of the Great Persian Emperours. By Sa. Clarke sometime pastor in St. bennet Finck London. Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, also known as Pompey, was a military and political leader of the late Roman Republic. Pompey and Caesar contended for the leadership of the Roman state, leading to a civil war. When Pompey was defeated at the Battle of Pharsalus, he sought refuge in Egypt, where he was assassinated. His career and defeat are significant in Rome's subsequent transformation from Republic to Principate and Empire. 1689-London-J. Dunton: The Bloody Assizes: Or, a Compleat History of the Life of George Lord Jefferies from His Birth to this present Time. Wherein among other things, is given a true account of his unhead of cruelties, and barbarous proceedings in his whole Western-circuit. . . None of which were ever publish'd. The Bloody Assizes were a series of trials started at Winchester on 25 August 1685 in the aftermath of the Battle of Sedgemoor, which ended the Monmouth Rebellion in England. They were led by Lord Chief Justice George Jeffreys. George Jeffreys, 1st Baron Jeffreys of Wem, PC (15 May 1645 18 April 1689), was also known as The Hanging Judge. His historical notoriety comes from his actions in 1685, after Monmouth's Rebellion. Jeffreys was sent to the West Country in the autumn of 1685 to conduct the trials of captured rebels. At these trials, later known as the Bloody Assizes, Jeffreys issued harsh sentences to nearly all defendants. About 300 were executed, and between 800 and 900 were transported to the West Indies. On 18/19 September alone, he issued 144 death sentences. 1699-London-J. Nutt: Remarks on the Life of Mr. Milton, as publish'd by J. T. with a Character of the Author and his Party in a letter to a member of Parliament. John Milton (9 December 1608 8 November 1674) was an English poet, polemicist, a scholarly man of letters, and a civil servant for the Commonwealth (republic) of England under Oliver Cromwell. He wrote at a time of religious flux and political upheaval, and is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost. 1706-London-A. Baldwin: The Characters of Robert Earl of Essex, Favourite to Queen Elizabeth, and George D. of Buckingham, favourite to K. James I and K. Ch. I. with a comparison, by the Right Honourable Edward Late Earl of Clarendon. Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex, KG (10 November 1565 25 February 1601) was an English nobleman and a favourite of Elizabeth I. Politically ambitious, and a committed general, he was placed under house arrest following a poor campaign in Ireland during the Nine Years' War in 1599. In 1601 he led an abortive coup d'etat against the government and was executed for treason. George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham KG (28 August 1592 23 August 1628) was the favourite, claimed by some to be the lover, of King James I of England. Despite a very patchy political and military record, he remained at the height of royal favour for the first two years of the reign of Charles I, until he was assassinated. He was one of the most rewarded royal courtiers in all history. 171.
