L?incisione del Della Bella raffigura Cosmo, con lo scudo che mostra lo stemma mediceo, vittorioso nel duello con Radagario, re dei Goti. Bellissima e rara incisione.

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.

Giovanni Cesare TESTA (Roma circa 1630 ? circa 1655)
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 pape … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giovanni Francesco GRIMALDI detto il ?Bolognese? (Bologna 1606 ? Roma 1680)
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 cont … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Blaeuw, Guiljemi [Blaeu]
[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)

MENTEL, JACQUES.
Parisiis: Ex Officina Roberti Ballard, 1650. 4to, contemporary vellum. Woodcut title-page vignette, two head pieces, two tail pieces, one initial letter and one full engraving in the text. Half-title present. An early example of "bibliographical forgery" in which its author, Jacques Mentel, "forged documentary evidence to prove that his alleged ancestor, Johann Mentelin of Strasssburg, anticipated Gutenberg in the invention of movable type" - Freeman. To add legitimacy to the text, Mentel dedicated his work to antiquarian and scholar Bernard van Mallinckrodt. Johann Mentelin was an important German printer who flourished between 1458-78. Duplicate tag and early ink shelf mark of an unidentified library on the front free endpaper. Vellum a little soiled and worn; some slight smudges and stains in the text; very good copy.

(incl. added engraved title), 107, [3] pp. Small folio, orig. Viennese edition binding of cont. vellum over boards, three ornamental borders round sides, fleurons in each corner, coat-of-arms on upper cover of the Habsburgs, the one on the rear cover depicts the coat-of-arms of an Austrian Archduke (all stamped in silver, now oxidized), orig. red & beige silk ties, a.e.g. Vienna: J.J. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
