Leiden, Elzevier, 1655. 6 Blätter (incl. gestochenem Titel), 568 Seiten. Mit fünf durchgezogenen Pergamentstreifen gehefteter Pergamentband der Zeit. (13,7 x 8,5 cm, bzw. 13 x 7,5 cm; Buchblock: 2,2 cm) 12°. - Das letzte Zeugnis der kurzen Zusammenarbeit Jean und Daniel Elzevirs, mit der oft fehlenden Widmung und von interessanter Provenienz - Vergl. Bérard S. 72 f ("Cette édition [1637 ! CS] est la première et la plus recherchée de celles imprimées par les Elzévirs. Elle contient 717 pages, compris même le frontispice. Les éditions suivantes sont moins estimées. Elles ont paru, en 1655, à Leyde, et, en 1658 à Amsterdam.").

Cette épitre, signée J. et D. Elzevier, est datée du 14 [recte XV. ! CS] janvier 1655. L'association des deux imprimeurs ayant été dissoute trois mois plus tard, il est à présumer que cette pièce ne se trouve que dans les exemplaires mis en vente avant le départ de Daniel.").

Lugduni Batavorum, Johannes Elsevier, 1655.

November 1670 in Leiden), war ein deutscher Historiker, Geograf, Theologe und Professor. (...) Als Professor lebte er in Harderwijk und Leiden.An der Hochschule in Leiden war er ein Bekannter von Cornelius Tollius. Im Jahr 1666 teilte er als Professor für Geschichte im niederländischen Leiden die Menschheit in Japhetiten (Weiße), Semiten (Gelbe) und Hamiten (Schwarze) ein. Beeinflusst wurde er dabei vom 1. Buch Mose. Gemäß der biblischen Überlieferung glaubte er, dass die gesamte Menschheit von den drei Söhnen Noachs abstamme: Jafet, Sem und Ham. Diese Söhne teilen sich gemäß seiner Lehre die Erdteile: Sem habe Asien, Ham besitzt Afrika und Jafet gehört Europa. Im 1. Buch Mose (9,20-27) wird Ham von seinem Vater verflucht. Mit der Lehre Horns und dem erwähnten Hintergrund im Alten Testament wurde die Geringschätzung und Unterdrückung der Bewohner Afrikas, den angeblichen Nachkommen Hams, legitimiert'.Willems, 767Berghman, 393

MERIAN, Matthaus
1655. Frankfurt: Mattheus Merian. unbound. View. Uncolored copper engraving. Image measures 11.5 x 14.5". This incredible circa 1655 view depicts a scene from the important naval battle during the first Anglo-Dutch War. The Battle of Ter Heijde or the Battle of Scheveningen was fought in July 31 1653 (10 August according to the Gregorian calendar) off the Dutch coast between the Commonwealth of England and the United Provinces. This final battle resulted in both sides claiming a victory and eventually led to the 1654 Treaty of Westminster. The scene depicts the Dutch fleet under Maarten Tromp engrossed in heavy battle with the English fleet under George Monck. Although Tromp was killed early in the battle, his death was kept secret to keep up the morale of the Dutch. A legend along the bottom lists the commanders and ships marked on the view. Issued in Merian's "Theatrum Europaeum". The print is in good condition with minor wear and verso repairs along the original folds and edges. Original plate mark is visible. Minor foxing. The Swiss-born Matthäus Merian (1593-1650) studied in Zurich and Paris before moving to Frankfurt, where he worked as an engraver, etcher and publisher. He lived in Basel, the city he was born in, for brief periods during his lifetime. This is a beautiful example of his work.

Nicolas SANSON d'Abeville (Abbeville 1600 - Parigi 1667)
1655. Carta geografica tratta dal "Cartes Génerales de toutes les parties du Monde", edito da Pierre Mariette. Fine map of Asia. Nicolas Sanson was to bring about the rise of French cartography, although the fierce competition of the Dutch would last until the end of the century. His success was partly owing to the partnership with the publisher Pierre Mariette. In 1644 the latter had purchased the business of Melchior Tavernier, and helped Sanson with financial support in producing the maps. In 1657 Pierre Marriette died, however his son, also named Pierre, co-published the following years. Taken from "Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde", published by Pierre Mariette.

In der oberen rechten Darstellungshälfte mit zwei Abriebstellen. Blatt mit drei vertikalen geglätteten Bugfalten. Etwas gebräunt/braunfleckig. Zustand wurde im Preis berücksichtigt. Copper engraving on the lower right side brownspotted and dampstained. Paper with smoothed vertical folds. ] "Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach (1656-1723) begründete mit seinen Bauten in Wien und Salzburg die führende Stellung des deutschen Spätbarocks in Europa. Zu seinen bedeutendsten Leistungen in Wien zählen die Karlskirche, die Bibliothek der Hofburg, das Winterpalais des Prinzen Eugen und das Palais Trautson. In Salzburg ist er vor allem mit Kirchenbauten wie der Dreifaltigkeits- und der Kollegienkirche hervorgetreten. Neben seiner europäischen Bedeutung als Architekt steht der gleichwertige Theoretiker Fischer von Erlach. Mit seinem 1721 veröffentlichten Stichwerk "Entwurff einer Historischen Architectur" führt er die Tradition der klassischen Architekturtraktate zwar fort, entwirft aber zugleich seine Vision einer Weltarchitektur, die in seinen eigenen Werken gipfelt. Seine eigenen Bauten stellt er nicht nur gleichberechtigt neben die berühmten Werke der Antike, in ihnen zieht er die Summe … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERRERIO Pietro (attivo a Roma nella prima metà del sec. XVII)
1655. "Della serie: ""Palazzi di Roma de' più celebri architetti designati da Pietro Ferrerio pittore et architetto"". L'opera fu progettata da Pietro Ferrerio intorno al 1638 circa. Si compone di due volumi, di cui il secondo reca il titolo ""Nuovi disegni dell'architettura e piante de'palazzi de Roma de'pui celebri architetti, disegnati et intagliati da Gio. Battista Falda"". L'opera fu pubblicata dall'editore Gian Giacomo de Rossi, intorno al 1655 circa. Le 44 tavole del primo libro recano il nome di Ferreio solo in qualità di disegnatore, mentre non è noto chi fu l'incisore. Le 61 tavole del secondo volume, invece, furono tutte incise da Giovanni Battista Falda. I più importanti palazzi romani sono illustrati sia in alzato sia in pianta, a partire dall'età d'oro di Bramante, Raffaello, Peruzzi e Michelangelo per poi passare a Vignola, Ammannati, Ligorio, Della Porta, dedicando infine un modesto spazio agli architetti del nuovo secolo, quali Bernini, Borromini o Domenico Fontana. Ogni tavola è corredata da un'iscrizione di carattere storica che riporta sempre, tra le altre notizie, il nome dell'architetto che progettò l'opera, e l'anno di inzio della costruzione. Le incisioni si caratterizzano per la precisione del disegno, l'attenzione verso il particolare e la nitidezza dell'immagine. L'opera costituisce una sorta di guida all'architettura romana tra cinquecento e seicento, di grande valore storico-documentario. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti la numerazione. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in buono stato di conservazione." "From the series ""Pala … [Click Below for Full Description]
