Boschini Marco
Venezia, dopo 1645 (1651 vedi Cicogna) - In-folio (2) c. (1) c. (di tav.) 61 c. (di tav. nautiche incise su rame). Frontespizio inciso, antiporta figurato a piena pagina con Leone di San Marco con libro aperto "Pax Tibi Marce Evangelista Meus" e spada sguainata sopra l'isola di Candia. Cartoncino muto con dorso a tre nervi. Le carte 6, 60 e 61, mancanti sono state sostitute da riproduzioni su carta antica. Per il resto il volume è collazionato, pulito e in perfette condizioni. Durante il XVI secolo l'impero ottomano aveva esercitato una massiccia pressione sul Mar Mediterraneo e nei Balcani, spesso avvantaggiato dall'alleanza francese, giungendo sino in Ungheria. Nel '600 la politica dell'impero turco divenne anche più aggressiva, ma con la fine del secolo, le sorti dell'impero erano compromesse, ed esso non costituiva più un pericolo per l'Europa anzi divenne oggetto delle mire espansionistiche dei maggiori stati europei. Infatti, lo stato ottomano rimaneva anacronisticamente fermo alla struttura feudale, mentre i suoi avversari cristiani si organizzavano in regimi accentrati, sostenuti da una solida burocrazia che ne garantiva l'efficienza. I Turchi restarono del tutto estranei al rinnovamento culturale e scientifico che percorse l'Europa. Tale carenza compromise tutta la loro organizzazione tecnica persino nel campo navale. In un paese che faceva della guerra la propria attività fondamentale i sacrifici gravissimi imposti ai piccoli feudatari, tenuti a servire come cavalieri, finirono col rovinarli e coll'esasperarli, sicché gli eserciti diventarono sempre più indiscipli … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEONARDO DA VINCI
Added engraved title, fine large engraved vignette on title, fine full-page engraved port. of Alberti, numerous engraved illus. in the text, & many engraved initials, head-, & tail-pieces. 10 p.l. (incl. added engraved title), 112 pp., [8] leaves (incl. a plate & a blank leaf); 8 p.l. (incl. the port. of Alberti), 62 pp. Two parts in one vol. Folio, early 18th-cent. mottled calf (very careful repairs to spine & corners), double gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt. Paris: G. Langlois, 1651. First edition and a lovely copy from the Macclesfield library; this book had a great influence on French and Western art history. Our Italian edition is considered preferable as it contains the Della Pittura and Della Statua of Leon Battista Alberti (the French edition of the same year does not). Leonardo's treatise on painting was brought together from many notes by his pupil Francesco Melzi. A manuscript copy made for Fréart de Chanteloup and illustrated by Nicolas Poussin, formed the basis for this edition. "The first edition of the Trattato della pittura was designed to represent Leonardo monumentally. The format of the book is large, the typography elaborate."-Steinitz, Leonardo da Vinci's Trattato della Pittura...A Bibliography, pp. 145-50 & Belt 1. The book was edited by Raphael Trichet du Fresne (1611-61), numismatist and art historian. He was corrector of the press at the Imprimerie Royale and later librarian to Queen Christina of Sweden, succeeding Naudé in the post. Trichet was himself one of the great bibliophiles and collectors of the 17th century. Following th … [Click Below for Full Description]
