        THE COMPLETE ( COMPLEAT ) ANGLER OR THE CONTEMPLATIVE MAN'S RECREATION. Being a discourse of rivers, fish-ponds, fish and fishing. To which is added the laws of angling: with a new table of the particulars in this book.

      London, printed by J. G[rismond]. for Rich. Marriot, 1661. THIRD EDITION MUCH ENLARGED 1661. Small 8vo, approximately 150 x 90 mm, 5¾ x 3½ inches, FACSIMILE TITLE PAGE, 10 small copperplate engravings of fish in the text, attributed to Pierre Lombart, 2 pages of the words and music to "The Anglers Song" set by Henry Lawes, the second page printed upside down to facilitate part singing, pages: [16], 255, [17], collation A-S8, bound in full brown modern morocco, double ruled gilt border to covers with decorative blind border inside, gilt rules and decoration between raised bands to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. Pages very lightly-age browned, some margins slightly trimmed, just shaving running title a couple of times, occasional light brown mark in lower margins, small piece torn from 1 top corner with loss of page number (no doubt because wrongly numbered 78 instead of 87), final page of index browned in the margins. A very good clean copy (lacking original title page as noted). "A Short Discourse by way of Post-script, touching the Lawes of Angling" printed in black letter begins the final unpaginated section on S1r, followed by the Contents Table and the Index. Except for a few changes the third edition is identical with the second edition. The commendatory verses by Alexander Brome are omitted, and the chapter on the "Lawes of Angling" is for the first time included. The publisher Marriott transferred some copies of the sheets of the third edition to Simon Gape who provided them with a new title page with his name and dated 1664, but of course otherwise identical to the edition of 1661. Copies of these are scarce and are usually known as the 1664 third edition. As we are lacking the title page we cannot say whether ours is the 1661 third or the Gape third, at all events ours was certainly printed in 1661.

        La Première [seconde] partie des Conférences académiques et oratoires, sur toutes sortes de sujets problématiques, utiles et agréables, accompagnées de leur décision. Où l'on voit l'usage des plus belles maximes de la philosophie et des plus beaux préceptes de l'éloquence. Dédiées à Monseigneur Fouquet Procureur général, Sur-Intendant des Finances et ministre d'Estat. Par I. D. S. escuyer, sieur de Richesource, moderateur de l'Académie.

      A Paris chez l'Autheur 1661-1662 2 parties en 1 vol. in-4 de (26)-597-(1) pp. erreurs de pagination sans manque, veau brun granité, dos orné à nerfs, double filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Tête de série de la revue fondée par Jean Oudart dit de la Sourdière, seigneur de Richesource (1616-1694). La première partie comprend les conférences 1 à 22, la deuxième les conférences 23 à 44. Vendues séparément dès 1660, les 44 premières conférences furent réunies une première fois en 1661 par leur auteur sous un titre général à l'adresse de Paris, rue de la Huchette, privilège du 20 mars 1661. Cette deuxième édition publiée la même année (privilège du 10 avril 1661) reprend les 44 conférences remaniées avec des changements dans les dédicaces. La publication régulière des séances s'acheva en 1666 et compte 88 conférences. Richesource avait institué ses conférences en 1653 à l'instar de celles que Théophraste Renaudot avait organisées au Bureau d'Adresse de 1633 à 1642. Les discours prononcés dans les séances du lundi furent imprimés mais des contrefaçons induisirent Richesource à prendre un privilège qui lui permit de réunir en recueil les livraisons de l'année écoulée. A partir de la quatrième livraison, le sujet des conférences ultérieures est annoncé. Par la suite seront généralement indiqués les auteurs des questions parmi lesquels Le Tellier, Filleau, de Cailly, Du Bordage, Saint-Gilles, Perrachon, Prioreau, l'abbé de Visé, le chevalier de Saint-Philbert, le vicomte de Montaigu, les marquis de Cany, de Sorgues eet de Magneux. Quelques orateurs parmi lesquels le jeune Fléchier se signalent par la fréquence de leurs interventions. Ainsi différentes questions touchant le plus souvent à la morale sont débattues contradictoirement : la toute première conférence porte su ce thème si la vie civile est préférable à la vie rustique. Bien des motifs apparaissent qui se retrouveront peu d'années après chez La Rochefoucauld, La Fontaine, Molière et La Bruyère. Titre-fontispice répété en tête de la deuxième partie. La collection comprend 88 Conférences dont la publication s'échelonne entre 1660 et 1665. Restauration à la reliure. Galeries de ver marginales sur les trois premières conférences avec perte de quelques lettres. Galeries de ver marginales atteignant le te xte des trois premières conférences. Cioranescu III, 59546 ; Sgard I, 216 : « Document précieux pour l'histoire des mentalités, les Conférences académiques aident surtout à mieux comprendre ce qui constitue pour notre littérature classique son horizon d'attente ».

San Guglielmo di Malavalle, noto anche come Guglielmo di Aquitania, fu un eremita e contemplativo, i cui insegnamenti, raccolti dal suo discepolo Alberto, che visse con lui il suo ultimo anno di vita, nel Consuetudines e Regula sancti Guillelmi, diedero origine all'Ordine di San Guglielmo. È venerato come santo dalla Chiesa cattolica. "Etching with drypoint, 1661 circa, signed at lower right. Example of the second state of two. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with ""encircled fluer - de - lys"" watermark, wide margins, perfect conditions. St. William of Maleval, also known as William of Aquitaine, was a hermit, contemplative, whose teachings, collected by his disciple Alberto who lived with him his last year of life, and in Consuetudines Regula sancti Guillelmi, gave rise to 'order of St. William. It is revered as a saint by the Catholic Church. A great example." Bartsch 1; Thodoli 99; Salamon 85. 235 355

        Diogene e Alessandro. (Napoli 1615 - Roma 1673)

      1661 - 62. Acquaforte e puntasecca, eseguita fra il 1661 - 62, firmata in lastra in basso entro cartiglio. Mm 452x270. Discreta prova con impressione un po' leggera, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana con scudo, buoni margini. Titolo manoscritto anticamente con inchiostro bruno al margine inferiore. Secondo stato su due. Analogamente al Testa, al Castiglione e al Della Bella, Salvator Rosa sentì l'incisione come il mezzo tecnico più adatto ad esprimere il suo linguaggio espressivo ed infatti insieme agli artisti sopra citati è da considerare protagonista della storia dell'incisione italiana del Seicento. Esponente di una vasta cultura eclettica, i suoi molteplici interessi figurativi avevano come poli il classicismo carraccesco, il naturalismo del Ribera, la pittura romana contemporanea e il mondo antico. Da quest'ultimo in particolare il Rosa sembra trarre spunto per le sue colte composizioni incise che, come già nel Testa, si ricollegano alle tematiche care alla filosofia stoica, glorificando le virtù con allegorie assai complesse e costruite. A questo aspetto va aggiunto anche l'interesse per il mondo esoterico che gli ispirò composizioni negromantiche in pitture. La sua grande abilità tecnica e la padronanza del mezzo incisorio all'acquaforte hanno fatto sì che le stampe di Salvator Rosa venissero apprezzate sin dall'antichità, copiate e ricercate da collezionisti e mercanti.

        ARMONIA DI PACE, E TESORO DI VERO HONORE. OVE ALLA NOBILITÀ S'INSEGNA ONORATO MODO DI COMPORRE LE PACI, SI TRATTA DELLA NOBILTÀ, ET INSIEME DELL'ECCELLENZA DELL'HONORE... COME SUOI CONTRARII SI BIASIMANO E DANNANO L'INFAME VENDETTA, ET L'INFAMISSIMO E TUTTO L'INIQUO DUELLO.

      1661. Opera sul duello apparentemente anonima ed inedita. Una parte dell'originale piatto anteriore in cartone rustico, incollata su una carta di guardia, cita: "Libro di Timaleone Bona..."; sembra fare riferimento a Timaleone Bonafede, erudito seicentesco autore dell'opera Picciolissimo tributo offerto alla Sovrana Regina dell''uniuerso... edita a Padova dal Frambotto nel 1661. Ma di lui non risultano altre opere, né vi è evidenza documentaria alcuna che abbia scritto un trattato sull'onore e i duelli. Nessun riferimento in Levi-Gelli, Bibliografia del duello. Per la datazione del manoscritto, oltre l'analisi della scrittura, appare dirimente l'esame della filigrana, un''ancora sormontata da una stella a sei punte, tipica della produzione italiana seicentesca. Heawood, Watermarks, pag. 63, tav.1. Nell''ampia trattatistica sul duello, quest''opera si inserisce nel filone di netta condanna di tale retaggio medievale di gestione della giustizia, in linea con tutta la giurisprudenza del tempo. Il volume è composto da 25 capitoli, così divisi: I - Che il duello è giudizio iniquo, e quali siano le persone da esso escluse; II - Dell'attore, e del reo; III - De' Padrini; IV - Del giudice, e del processo; V - Della prima conditione, che si considera nelli cartelli;VI - Della seconda conditione de' cartelli; VII - Della terza condizione de' cartelli, VIII - Della Tortura; IX - Della sentenza, e del Duello detto la Macchia; X - Della vendetta; XI - Della deffinitione del Duello; XII - Della differenza del Duello; XIII - Del 2°e 3° fine del Duello; XIV - Dell'honore; XV - Della Nobiltà; XVI - Della Difesa vera dell'honore; XVII - Del quarto, e quinto fine del Duello; XVIII - Delli due ultimi fini del Duello; XIX - Che il Duello in niun caso si può lecitamente volere; XX - Dell'eccellenza della verità in se stessa, e nello rendere l'honore all'offeso, et all'offenditore insieme; XXI - Della forma di comporre la pace, e della sua prima circostanza; XXII - Della 2° circostanza, e conditione della forma del comporre la pace; XXIII - Della 3° circostanza della forma del comporre la pace; XXIV - Dell'ultima circostanza della forma del comporre la pace; XXV - Di una forma rara di comporre paci... Manoscritto cartaceo del sec. XVII, 135 carte numerate (ma 140), in 4° (20,5 x 14,5 cm.), vergato in corsiva a inchiostro nero, con interventi di mano successiva e varianti al testo poste su fascette incollate al margine interno, fori di tarlo restaurati, aloni alle ultime carte, legatura moderna in cartone.

        De Piscibus libri V, et de Cetis lib. unus. Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius..collegit. Marc. Antonius Bernia in lucem restituit.. Bononiae, apud Nicolaum Thebaldinum, 1638, (ma in fine:) Typis Io. Bapt. Ferronij, sumptibus Marci Ant. Berniae, MDCLXI (Bologna 1661)

      Fe, 1661. in - folio, pp. (6, compr. tit. inc., ma privo di un f. bianco), pp. 732 (dopo p. 480 sono inseriti 2 ff. di cui sotto), (28); legatura coeva p. perg. rigida, dorso a nervi con tit. ms., altro tit. calligr. sul taglio infer. Frontespizio inciso entro splendida bordua allegorica con figure e stemma di Francesco Vitelli, arcivescovo di Tessalonica, cui l'opera è dedicata da da parte di Marco Ant. Bernia. Pur essendo una fedele ristampa della precedente edizione del Tebaldini, in questa del 1661 l'editore ha aggiunto 2 ff. tra le pp. 480 e 481 (particolarità non riscontrata nelle bibliografie): il primo (pp. cccclxxxj - cccclxxxij) col testo del ''Libri tertij de Piscibus Auctariolum de inviso antea Pisce Monstroso'' ed il secondo con la raffigurazione silografica del medesimo pesce serpentiforme pescato nelle vicinanze di Napoli. Edizione di notevole pregio (la prima era stata impressa da Giov. Batt. Bellagamba nel 1612 - 13), curata da Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius, corredata di 400 splendide figure in silografia di pesci e cetacei, anche a piena pagina. Opera di grande interesse pure per gli ampi capitoli sulla natura e sulla pesca della balena. «Ce qui est précieux, ce sont ses figures; elles se composent de toutes celles de Gesner, de Rondelet et de Belon et d'un très grand nombre de dessins nouveaux. Placé plus favorablement que Rondelet et Gesner pour recevoir les productions du midi de l'Europe, (Aldrovandi) en recueillit plusieurs qui avaient échappé à ces deux grands naturalistes. Il en reçut aussi des Indes. L'Amérique d'ailleurs et l'intérieur de l'Afrique lui fournirent différentes éspèces qui n'étaient pas encore arrivées en Europe» (Hoefer I, 745). E' uno tra i più preziosi dei 13 volumi di storia naturale redatta dall'Aldrovandi, che costituisce la più significativa raccolta del sapere naturalistico del Rinascimento, ed il più notevole tentativo di descrizione e classificazione zoologica, botanica e mineralogica che sia mai stato fatto dopo Aristotele e prima dei tempi moderni. Figura straordinariamente eclettica, l'Aldrovandi (Bologna 1522 - 1605) fu appassionato collezionista di materiale naturalistico raro e prezioso: si vantava «di non avere mai descritto cosa alcuna senza averla toccata colle proprie mani e senza averne fatto l'anatomia». Bell'esempl. genuino e marginoso.

WRITTEN ORIGINALLY BY DAVID BLONDEL; ENGLISHED BY J. D.

      Printed by T. R. for the Authour, and are to be sold by Thomas Dring, at the George in Fleet-Street, near Clifford's-Inne, London 1661 - Expertly rebound in antique-style calf, paneled in blind, raised bands, gilt morocco label. Original binding’s armorial bookplate of "Henry Peirse of Bedall in Yorkshire Esq" retained in front pastedown. Minor toning and occasional minor foxing. Near fine. First edition in English (issue with Dring imprint), after the original French edition, published as DES SIBYLLES CELEBRÉES. in 1649. An important work of 17th-century scholarship denying the authenticity of the Sibylline oracles and the Catholic practice of prayers for the dead. David Blondel (1591-1655) was a French Calvinist clergyman and professor of history at Amsterdam, later praised by Voltaire, Diderot, and other leading voices of the French Enlightenment. In the present work, Blondel examines the Oracula Sibyllina cited by early Church Fathers as ancient pagan anticipations of Christ and evidence for certain Christian eschatological views. The Oracula comprised twelve to fourteen books believed to record utterances of the Sibyls of ancient Greece, women associated with religious shrines who spoke in frenzied states as channels of the gods. The writings in question began experiencing renewed interest during the mid-16th century, when rediscovered manuscripts were printed for the first time in Basel and Paris. This coincided with Reformation-era controversies on the Catholic doctrine of Purgatory, which the Sibylline Oracles seemed to support. In his investigations, Blondel found strong evidence for the Oracula to be later Christian forgeries, whose acceptance he discusses here as an example of human propensity for error, even among revered early Christian writers.

Buddhist, but noncanonical ? work, written in classical Chinese. While it evokes and invokes the Buddha, it is the work of a small, populist sect, and is not mainstream Buddhism. The work is printed in the less familiar "fanfold" manner and unsewn rather than in the "Chinese style" that Westerners are most familiar with. It is printed printed from woodblocks, three to a sheet, which are the glued together to form an "accordion style" book. => It features a multipage "frontispiece" of the Buddha and related religious imagery on six preliminary pages. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). With a note laid in reading: "This is a volume of a Chinese Buddhist sacred book, which has been for two centuries in a Shantung family. The woman who owned it became convinced of its uselessness, & exchanged it for a New Testament & a hymn book. It is now presented to the Pacific Theological Seminary by Rev. Arthur H. Smith, P'ang Chuang, Shantung, China." The Rev. Smith (1845?1932) was a missionary of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions who spent 54 years as a missionary in China . (We are grateful to Dr. Martin Heijdra of the East Asian Library at Princeton for assisting us in identifying this work.) Covers detached but present; soiled and totally faded and discolored. Tattering and dog-earing of text leaves; many split at the folds or at pasted areas. Far from perfect condition but => complete.

However the ODNB does not list this amongst his works. In the Preface to this serio-comic work, published to coincide with the celebrations for the restoration of the monarchy (and in an act of remarkable prescience about what would notoriously prove to be one of the major preoccupations of that new anti-puritan era), seeing ?the general verge of the people to merryment?, the author expresses the hope that ?this piece of drollery? on the subject of cuckoldry might prove ?acceptable? to his readers.

        [title in Chinese characters, transliterated as] Wei wei bu dong tai shan shen gen ji guo bao juan 1 juan.

      Yucheng, Shandong: Luo[ "the good man"], shanren Narrow Folio (33 x 11 cm; 13" x 4.5"). 310 pp.. 1661 This is a popular religious — Buddhist, but noncanonical — work, written in classical Chinese. While it evokes and invokes the Buddha, it is the work of a small, populist sect, and is not mainstream Buddhism. The work is printed in the less familiar "fanfold" manner and unsewn rather than in the "Chinese style" that Westerners are most familiar with. It is printed printed from woodblocks, three to a sheet, which are the glued together to form an "accordion style" book. => It features a multipage "frontispiece" of the Buddha and related religious imagery on six preliminary pages. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). With a note laid in reading: "This is a volume of a Chinese Buddhist sacred book, which has been for two centuries in a Shantung family. The woman who owned it became convinced of its uselessness, & exchanged it for a New Testament & a hymn book. It is now presented to the Pacific Theological Seminary by Rev. Arthur H. Smith, P'ang Chuang, Shantung, China." The Rev. Smith (1845–1932) was a missionary of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions who spent 54 years as a missionary in China . (We are grateful to Dr. Martin Heijdra of the East Asian Library at Princeton for assisting us in identifying this work.) Covers detached but present; soiled and totally faded and discolored. Tattering and dog-earing of text leaves; many split at the folds or at pasted areas. Far from perfect condition but => complete.

        SOME CONSIDERATIONS TOUCHING THE USEFULNESSE OF EXPERIMENTAL NATURALL PHILOSOPHY. [bound with] CERTAIN PHYSIOLOGICAL ESSAYS

      Oxford: Printed by Hen. Hall, 1663; London: Printed for Henry Herringman, 1661. FIRST EDITIONS of both works y. The two works in this volume are greatly important scientific publications individually, and together they demonstrate the author's virtuosity as a natural philospher and experimentalist, as they cover an impressive array of scientific subject matter including medicine, physiology, zoology, philosophy, and chemistry. Although Boyle is chiefly remembered for his contributions to chemistry (see later in this discussion), "Some Considerations" was among his most important in the field of medicine. According to the DNB, the text here "was to prove his most extensive medical work and . . . was widely cited in the debates on medical practice of the time." In it he describes a great many experiments, cures, observations, and case histories, with topics as diverse as limb regeneration in certain animals, using fright to cure ailments, and the preparations of tinctures, cordials, and other remedies. The second work here is of monumental importance to the history of chemistry because it is considered the precursor to Boyle's classic essay, "The Sceptical Chymist," which he published less than six months after the appearance of "Essays." These complementary works both promoted chemistry as a separate discipline from alchemy, but it is in Boyle's "Essays" that he first sets out his "corpuscular hypothesis," describing the basic formation of all matter. This theory would drive his subsequent experimentation and also influenced some of the era's finest thinkers, including Isaac Newton and, perhaps to an even greater degree, John Locke. In discussing corpuscularianism, Boyle also touches on an important physiological discovery when he describes digestion as observed in a dog, "thus giving recognition to the existence of the agents now designated the 'enzymes.'" (Fulton). 195 x 160 mm. (7 3/4 x 6 1/4"). [20], 127, [9], 48, 57-417, [19]; [4], 36, [2], 37-105, [13], 107-249, [1] (blank) pp. (with several mispaginations but complete). Two works in one volume. FIRST EDITIONS of both works. Contemporary speckled calf, raised bands with lettering that was once gilt (but now rubbed away). Verso of title and recto of H2 with small ink stamp of the Selbourne Library (see item #73, above). First work: Fulton 50; Wing B-4029; Second work: Fulton 25; Heirs of Hippocrates 264; Garrison-Morton 665.1; Wing B-3929. Front joint cracked about an inch at head and foot, extremities a little bumped and rubbed, calf torn at the tail edge of front cover showing a bit of the board underneath; pastedowns lifted, revealing binding structure, two-inch light brown stain (from a chemical?) affecting the tail margin and lower edge of the text in the first part of the first work, first few leaves of second work a bit browned, occasional mild marginal stains or rust spots, but still a very good copy with no fatal defects, the text mostly clean and fresh, and the binding solid.

        De Piscibus libri V, et de Cetis lib. unus.

      Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius.collegit. Marc. Antonius Bernia in lucem restituit. Bononiae, apud Nicolaum Thebaldinum, 1638, (ma in fine:) Typis Io. Bapt. Ferronij, sumptibus Marci Ant. Berniae, MDCLXI (Bologna 1661), - in-folio, pp. (6, compr. tit. inc., ma privo di un f. bianco), pp. 732 (dopo p. 480 sono inseriti 2 ff. di cui sotto), (28); legatura coeva p. perg. rigida, dorso a nervi con tit. ms., altro tit. calligr. sul taglio infer. Frontespizio inciso entro splendida bordua allegorica con figure e stemma di Francesco Vitelli, arcivescovo di Tessalonica, cui l'opera è dedicata da da parte di Marco Ant. Bernia. Pur essendo una fedele ristampa della precedente edizione del Tebaldini, in questa del 1661 l'editore ha aggiunto 2 ff. tra le pp. 480 e 481 (particolarità non riscontrata nelle bibliografie): il primo (pp. cccclxxxj-cccclxxxij) col testo del ''Libri tertij de Piscibus Auctariolum de inviso antea Pisce Monstroso'' ed il secondo con la raffigurazione silografica del medesimo pesce serpentiforme pescato nelle vicinanze di Napoli. Edizione di notevole pregio (la prima era stata impressa da Giov. Batt. Bellagamba nel 1612-13), curata da Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius, corredata di 400 splendide figure in silografia di pesci e cetacei, anche a piena pagina. Opera di grande interesse pure per gli ampi capitoli sulla natura e sulla pesca della balena. «Ce qui est précieux, ce sont ses figures; elles se composent de toutes celles de Gesner, de Rondelet et de Belon et d'un très grand nombre de dessins nouveaux. Placé plus favorablement que Rondelet et Gesner pour recevoir les productions du midi de l'Europe, (Aldrovandi) en recueillit plusieurs qui avaient échappé à ces deux grands naturalistes. Il en reçut aussi des Indes. L'Amérique d'ailleurs et l'intérieur de l'Afrique lui fournirent différentes éspèces qui n'étaient pas encore arrivées en Europe» (Hoefer I, 745). E' uno tra i più preziosi dei 13 volumi di storia naturale redatta dall'Aldrovandi, che costituisce la più significativa raccolta del sapere naturalistico del Rinascimento, ed il più notevole tentativo di descrizione e classificazione zoologica, botanica e mineralogica che sia mai stato fatto dopo Aristotele e prima dei tempi moderni. Figura straordinariamente eclettica, l'Aldrovandi (Bologna 1522-1605) fu appassionato collezionista di materiale naturalistico raro e prezioso: si vantava «di non avere mai descritto cosa alcuna senza averla toccata colle proprie mani e senza averne fatto l'anatomia». Bell'esempl. genuino e marginoso. Ediz. non in BMC, XVII sec. né Cat. Vinciana. Nissen n. 70. Ceresoli p. 41. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Diogene e la sua scodella. (Napoli 1615 – Roma 1673)

      Roma 1661 - Acquaforte e puntasecca, eseguita fra il 1661-62, firmata in lastra in basso entro cartiglio. Mm 454x272. Discreta prova con impressione un po' leggera, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana con scudo, margini brevi in alto, a lato di circa 1 cm, sulla battuta in basso. Stato unico.Analogamente al Testa, al Castiglione e al Della Bella, Salvator Rosa sentì l'incisione come il mezzo tecnico più adatto ad esprimere il suo linguaggio espressivo ed infatti insieme agli artisti sopra citati è da considerare protagonista della storia dell'incisione italiana del Seicento.Esponente di una vasta cultura eclettica, i suoi molteplici interessi figurativi avevano come poli il classicismo carraccesco, il naturalismo del Ribera, la pittura romana contemporanea e il mondo antico.Da quest'ultimo in particolare il Rosa sembra trarre spunto per le sue colte composizioni incise che, come già nel Testa, si ricollegano alle tematiche care alla filosofia stoica, glorificando le virtù con allegorie assai complesse e costruite. A questo aspetto va aggiunto anche l'interesse per il mondo esoterico che gli ispirò composizioni negromantiche in pitture.La sua grande abilità tecnica e la padronanza del mezzo incisorio all'acquaforte hanno fatto sì che le stampe di Salvator Rosa venissero apprezzate sin dall'antichità, copiate e ricercate da collezionisti e mercanti.
