Giambattista Borghese (1639-1717), of the powerful Sienese/ Roman family, was an important patron of the arts. He purchased the family home that now houses one of the great art collections in Italy. The binding was made by the Andreoli Bindery, which in addition to their extensive work for the Borghese family also produced bindings for Popes Alexander VII and Clement IX as well as for royalty, including Queen Christina of Sweden. The crimson morocco binding has remarkably delicate, lace-like, gold-tooled designs framing the Borghese arms.This volume contains a world map, consisting of two hemispheric maps, and continental maps of Europe, Asia, and Africa, each of which consists of four sheets. Nicolosi also published another volume that contained text and an eight-sheet map of the Americas that is not included here. The volume offered has all map sheets called for.Shirley 418; Betz 94.1

Rusconi Giovan Antonio
Venice Appresso il Nicolini 1660. The first seventeenth century edition and only the second issue of Rusconi’s great work on architecture. Illustrated throughout with very fine architerctural engravings, very finely engraved head and tail pieces and fine elaborately decorated capital letters. Folio, very finely bound in an Italian binding of the period of half morocco and paper over boards. Spine decorated with gilt tools and two dark green morocco lettering labels gilt. [i-xii], 1-148 including woodcut illustrations. A very fine, crisp and extremely handsome copy. RARE. Rusconi’s superb work on the classical elements of architecture is one of the finest examples of the great Italian works on architecture. The illustrations follow those of the earlier issue, though pages 144-147 contain an article, with woodcut illustrations, on sundials which is not found in the first edition. The woodcut ornamental border of the title page is the same as that in Vitruvius, Venice, 1584 and Alberti, Venice, 1568. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Taylor, Jeremy
London: Pr. by James Flesher for Richard Royston Folio (32 cm, 12.6"). 2 vols. I: Add. engr. t.-p., [6], xl, 559, [1] pp.; 1 plt. II: [2], 558, [2] pp.. 1660 First edition: Important philosophical treatise on conscience, casuistry, and Christian ethics, written by the Bishop of Down and Connor. The controversialist Taylor, crowned "the Shakespeare of divines" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, was the subject during his career of a number of accusations of crypto-popery, but the present work — the first of its kind — was designed as a "complete protestant answer to the many Roman Catholic manuals of casuistry" (according to the Oxford DNB online) and intended to provide an authoritative Anglican reference on the subject. The portrait of the author was engraved by Pierre Lombard, while the added engraved title-page is unsigned. Each of the four books here (in two volumes) has a separate title-page; the main title-pages are printed in black and ruled in red. The text is in English, Greek, and Latin. A printed addenda slip is affixed to the final text page of vol. II, above the catalogue of books sold by Richard Royston. Leaf L6 in vol. II is a cancel (and separated). Provenance: Vol. I added title-page recto with inked ownership inscription dated 1781 ("T. Moore"); vol. II front fly-leaf with inked ownership inscription dated 1696 ("Guilel. Rayner") and another (of "T. Moore's") dated 1781. Recent quarter calf and marbled paper?-covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind, spine with gilt-stamped title and volume labels and gilt-stamped decorations between raised bands.

Cowley, A. [Abraham]
London: Printed for Henry Herringman, 1660. title page + 19 pp. Hardcover. 4to. Bound in red cloth covered boards. "Ode Cowley" stamped in gilt on the front board. All edges dyed red. Signatures: A-B4, C-C3 (A, A3, A4, B2, B4, C3 unsigned). Light wear to boards, with small patch of rubbing on spine. Corners slightly bumped. Pages have been trimmed, leading to loss of text on title page (top half of "Ode"), page 9 (most of the final line of text), and the second set of page numbers near the top margin of each page. A small section at the lower margin of the final three leaves has chipped away, not affecting text. Previous owner and bookseller notations on added ffep. Inked note on title page. With faults as noted quite good. Very good/No dust jacket. Cowley (1618-1667), a poet and sometime diplomat/secretary to Queen Henrietta Maria (wife of CharlesI), may have worked as a spy for the royalists during the late Cromwell era. His collections "The Mistress" (1647) and "Poems" (1656) wereimmensely popular during the poet's lifetime. MacLean writes of this piece "Cowley's Ode is highly figurative, blending biblical and classical allusions with motifs from astrology and medicine. Highly dynastic in argument, the poem is structured as a royal entry in which the king, other members of the royal family, Monk, and members of the two houses of parliament mingle with allegorical personifications of Liberty, Plenty, Riches, Honour and Safety. Along the way Cowley notices the slightly embarrassing absence of Henrietta Maria, who had stayed behind in France having become estrang … [Click Below for Full Description]
