        Prosp. Du Palais de Duc d’Orleans. Wiesolchez auff der Seitten im Garten anzufeben (Gardens at the Palace of the Duke d’ Orleans, Saint-Cloud)

      Frankfurt 1661 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages”. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Galliae” was published from 1655 to 1661 in partnership with Martin Zeiller who wrote the text. “Topographia Galliae” was one of the largest and most comprehensive publishing’s of the Gaul region of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, “Topographia Galliae” is comprised of 13 parts in four volumes, with nine engraved additional titles and 321 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cities, towns, castles, fortresses and monasteries. This single page engraving from “Topographia Galliae” titled “Prosp. Du Palais de Duc d’Orleans. Wiesolchez auff der Seitten im Garten anzufeben” measures 11.75" x 11.75" and is in good condition with evidence of previous repair to the central crease and light wrinkling along the central crease. This engraving is finely detailed and shows a view of the gardens at the Palace of the Duke d'Orleans, Saint Cloud. The Duke of Orleans, Phillip I, was the younger brother to King Louis XIV. The famous cascade in the garden was designed by Antoine Le Pautre and constructed between 1664 and 1665. This engraving shows a wide-angle view of the chateau and the gardens being enjoyed by visitors. The landscape is seen to extend far beyond the trees adding to the expansive chateau.

        De Centro Gravitatis Solidorum Libri hac nostra editione, servata ad unguem Auctoris mente, multò correctiores

      Woodcut printer's device on title & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 4 p.l., 260 pp. 4to, cont. limp boards (a little soiled, unimportant marginal dampstaining). Bologna: Heirs of Ducci, 1661. Second edition, combining the De Centro Gravitatis Solidorum and the Quadratura parabola; this edition contains important authorial additions and corrections. These two texts had a considerable influence on Galileo and his studies on motion. Valerio (1552-1618), who had studied under Clavius, met Galileo in Pisa in 1590 and influenced him to renew his studies on the centers of gravity. In 1609 they began an extensive correspondence on problems of motion and mathematics. It was during this time that Galileo was preparing his treatise on motion and mechanics which later became the Discorsi of 1638. "In December 1612, having completed his Sunspot Letters, Galileo considered having the Linceans print his work on centers of gravity of paraboloids, probably in the form of a letter to Luca Valerio. Ensuing correspondence shows that he sent this to Cesi, who in discussing the matter with Valerio found that he was then revising his own book on a similar subject, published in 1603-4. Galileo accordingly gracefully withdrew his work from publication at this time, for which Valerio expressed his gratitude. In fact Valerio did not reprint his book, and Galileo eventually placed his investigations of centers of gravity in an appendix to his own last book in 1638."­Drake, Galileo at Work, p. 202. Valerio's influence on Galileo, through his correspondence and these two books, was enormous, and he was singled out for praise in the Discorsi; where he is described as "our greatest geometer, the New Archimedes of our age." This was high praise indeed, for Valerio was critical of Galileo's Copernicanism and had been expelled from the Accademia dei Lincei in 1616 for his views. "Valerio's De centro gravitatis consists of the application of Archimedean methods to the determination of the volumes and centers of gravity of the various solids of rotation and their segments...Among the mathematicians who studied him and spoke highly of him were Cavalieri, Torricelli, and J. C. de la Faille. He also had a direct influence on Guldin, Gregorius Saint Vincent, and Tacquet."­D.S.B., XIII, pp. 560-61. Fine copy, preserved in a calf-backed box. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. M.E. Baron, The Origins of the Infinitesimal Calculus, pp. 101-03. Riccardi, II, 570­"Raro e pregiato." Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 332-33. .

        The South front of Kensington Palace, as seen from the Verges of the great Walk / Façade Méridionale du Palais de Kensington, vue la grande allée

      Robert Sayer and John Bowles & Son [no date], London - A very fine image of Kensington Palace and its expansive grounds. Erected in 1661 for the Earl of Nottingham, Kensington Palace became the royal residence of William III in 1689. Over the years, it underwent various renovations by architects such as Nicholas Hawksmoor and Sir Christopher Wren. The palace was surrounded by an extensive park, the vast grounds of which are pictured here, that was expanded and laid out by the celebrated garden designers Henry Wise and Charles Bridgeman. Visible on the far right side of this beautiful print is one of the chief formal tree-lined avenues that were characteristic of the park. John Tinney was both an engraver and "a print seller, and carried on business at the Golden Lion in Fleet Street, London, where all his own works were published. His mezzotint plates include portraits of Lavinia Fenton, after John Ellys; George III, after Joseph Highmore; Chief Baron Parker; and John Wesley; also some fancy subjects after Boucher, Lancret, Rosalba, Correggio, and others. He engraved in line a set of ten views of Hampton Court and Kensington Palace, after Anthony Highmore, and some of Fontainebleau and Versailles, after Jean Rigaud. Some of the plates in Ball's Antiquities of Constantinople , 1729, are also by him. Tinney is now remembered as the master of the distinguished engravers William Woollett, Anthony Walker, and John Browne." ( DNB ) Cf. Dictionary of National Biography. Hand-coloured engraving, printed on laid paper backed with a 20th-century archival sheet. Very good condition apart from some light soiling, a 1/2" tear in the bottom margin, a small loss in the lower right-hand corner, and a few minor water stains in the right margin, one of which is just within the right platemark.

This book has been restored and conserved by David Donahue of Philadelphia. This consisted primarily of rebacking. A detailed Treatment Report from him is included. Custom made titled clamshell case [Fine]. Pages, complete with elaborate engraved extra allegorical title but lacking frontis engraved portrait, losses to front free blank leaf, text with several hundred geometricals worked into the text plus scattered engraved decorations and some textural plates. Text quite solid and clean, brief aging, several leaves folded at fore-edge margin to incorporate engraved designs which extend into margins. Berlin Katalog 589. Riccardi II, 222. Graesse V, 58. Not in Fowler and many other standard references. Quite scarce contemporary publication of Osio's simplified method for the construction of the orders of architecture through angles alone, without arithmetic divisions and without modules. Initially published in Milan in 1641 (of the greatest scarcity). In fact, any early editions are excessively difficult to encounter, for Osio represents a Neanderthal line of architectural reasoning. He was a principal source for the writings of Guarini, but his approach ultimately proved to be unproductive as architecture developed according to strict measured drawings based upon mathematics and other sciences. Imagine the Hoover Dam built in the method of the pyramids, with someone standing on an adjacent hill and giving instructions based on what he saw instead of relying on the physics of poured concrete, knowledge of the pressure of water, and an understanding of the geological features.

        Parys wie folche 1620 anzufehen gewefsen (Paris, France)

      Mathias Merian, Amsterdam 1661 - “Parys. 1620” Mathias Merian From Topographia Galliae Amsterdam: 1661 Copperplate engraving 16 3/4” x 35” Mathias Merian was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages.” Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland, Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils -- among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons-in-law Christoph Le Blon and Melchior Kusel. His most famous pupil, however, would prove to be his daughter, Maria Sybillia Merian, a truly exceptional botanical artist of the early 18th century.

State Papers, Dom. 1636-7 p. 398, 1639-40 pp. 271, 277). Before 1656 Perrot joined the Quakers, and was preaching in Limerick. The next year he started, with the full authority of the Quaker body and at its expense, with one John Love, also an Irishman, on a mission to Italy, avowedly to convert the pope. Perrot passed through Lyons, and on 12 Aug. 1657 he was at Leghorn. There he wrote a treatise concerning the Jews, and both travellers were examined by the inquisition and dismissed. In September, diverging from their original route, they reached Athens, whence Perrot wrote an' Address to the People called Baptists in Ireland.' A manuscript copy is in the library of Devonshire House. He also wrote an epistle to the Greeks from ' Egripos,' that is the island of Negroponte (now called Eubcea). Returning to Venice, he interviewed the doge in his palace, and presented him with books and an address, afterwards printed. A work dated from the Lazaretto in Venice indicates either that he had fallen ill or was in prison. On arriving in Rome, probably in 1658, Perrot and Love commenced preaching against the Romish church, and were arrested. Love suffered the tortures of the inquisition and died under them. Perrot, whose zeal knew no bounds, was more appropriately sent to a madhouse, where he was allowed some liberty and wrote numerous books, addresses, and epistles. These he was suffered to send to England to be printed, and many of them appeared before his release; His detention excited much sympathy in England. Samuel Fisher (1605-1655) [q.v.], John Stubbs, and other Friends went to Rome in 1660 to procure his freedom. Two other Friends, Charles Bayley and Jane Stokes, also unsuccessfully attempted it, Bayley being imprisoned at Bordeaux on the way out. Some account of his experiences he contributed to Perrot's 'Narrative,' 1661. In May 1661 Perrot was released; but on his return to London he was received with some coldness. He was accused of extravagant behaviour while abroad. Fox and others condemned the papers issued by him from Rome, one of which propounded that the removal of the hat during prayer in public was a formal superstition, incompatible with the spiritual religion professed by Quakers. This notion gained ground rapidly, and was adopted for a time by Thomas Ell wood [q.v.] and Benjamin Furly [q. v.] ; but Fox at once attacked 'it in a tract issued in 1661 (Journal, ed. 1765, p. 332). Perrot was unconvinced, although many of his friends soon forsook him. He was indefatigable in preaching his opinions in various parts of England or Ireland, and attracted large audiences. He was arrested, with Luke Howard (1621-1699) [q. v.], at a meeting at Canterbury on 28 Aug. 1661, and again at the Bull and Mouth, Aldersgate Street, on a Sunday in June 1662, when he was brought before Sir Richard Browne (d. 1669) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Repair, about 6 x 2.3 cm., reinforcing title page at lower outer corner. Much smaller repair to lower outer corner of following leaf. No loss of text. Overall in good condition. Bookplate of J.[osé] Pinto Ferreira. ---- First Edition in the original Portuguese, rare. A translation into French had been printed in Paris in 1659. Apparently it is @Raisons fort puissantes pour faire voir l'obligation qu'a la France d'appuyer l'intérêt de Portugal dans le traité de la paix, Paris, 1659, of which only one copy seems to exist, at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. D. João da Costa, first Conde de Soure, Ambassador of Portugal to France, had his secretary, Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo, draw up these strenuous objections to France negotiating a separate peace with Spain, shortly prior to the conclusion of the Treaty of the Pyrenees. Cardinal Mazarin was greatly annoyed. In fact the printing of this manifesto in French translation in Paris in 1659 caused such consternation that the Cardinal ordered the imprisonment of the printer and translator; the translator sought asylum in the home of the Portuguese Ambassador.The Treaty of the Pyrenees resulted in withdrawal of France's support for Portuguese independence at a crucial juncture, allowing Spain to advance against Portugal with renewed vigor. Nevertheless Portugal was able to resist, and Spain recognized Portuguese independence in the Treaty of Lisbon, 1668.In the preliminary leaves are included an introduction by Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo addressed to the Portuguese king, stating that the publication at this time of the @Discurso in the original Portuguese was to counter the protests against it by Mazarin (second preliminary leaf recto-third preliminary leaf recto). João de Royas e Azevedo presents similar arguments (bottom of third preliminary leaf recto-fourth preliminary leaf verso).Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo (Lisbon 1618?-Alicante 1680) is known for his efforts to end the economic crisis in Portugal during the second half of the seventeenth century. Influenced by Colbert, he was responsible for outlining a plan for industrial growth, and favored the development of national crafts for export as a way of obtaining gold and balancing external trade. Ribeiro de Macedo realized that the loss of much of India inevitably meant a drastic change in Portugal's commerce and finance. It is ironic that his excellent plans for industrialization were discarded because another colony provided a temporary solace for Portugal's economic ills: gold was discovered in Minas Geraes in 1692. Macedo received his degree in law from Coimbra University. He eventually became an advisor to D. Pedro II, and Ambassador to France and Spain. He is also considered one of the classic Portuguese writers, in fact one of the greatest prose writers in the history of the language. Barbosa Machado writes that he had "hum estilo claro, e discreto." Innocêncio notes, "Occupa um logar mui pouco; mas o que d'elle temos foi o que bastou para os criticos lhe daram logar entre os classicos de primeira nota." @Provenance: J.[osé] Pinto Ferreira, Portuguese army officer, was a distinguished book collector who had significant Camoneana and much on the Restauração, as well as a trove of other books on Portuguese military history. ---- Arouca M26.

A very good copy. DAVID BLONDEL (1591 - 1655), was a French Protestant clergyman, historian and classical scholar. In 1650 he succeeded G. J. Vossius in the professorship of history at Amsterdam. His works were very numerous; in some of them he showed a remarkable critical faculty, as in his dissertation on Pope Joan (1647, 1657), in which he came to the conclusion, now universally accepted, that the whole story is a mere myth. Considerable Protestant indignation was excited against him on account of this book. His work on the Sibyls of classical times was first published in French in 1649.

        Il mondo festeggiante: balletto a cavallo, fatto nel teatro congiunto al palazzo del sereniss. gran duca, per le reali nozze de' serenissimi principi Cosimo Terzo di Toscana, e Margherita Luisa d'Orleans

      Firenze: Nella Stamperia di S.A.S., 1661. Firenze: Nella Stamperia di S.A.S., 1661. (Carducci, Allessandro). Il mondo festeggiante: balletto a cavallo, fatto nel teatro congiunto al palazzo del sereniss. gran duca, per le reali nozze de' serenissimi principi Cosimo Terzo di Toscana, e Margherita Luisa d'Orleans. Firenze: Nella Stamperia di S.A.S., 1661. Quarto. Contemporary Italian vellum, gilt (identical with other copies). 66pp., [3] folded leaves of plates. Text beginning on p. 7 as usual. One corner of binding chipped, some old tape reinforcement along fold of one plate. Marchetti 84; Moremi I 217; Ruggiere 503. A fine copy. Il mondo festeggiante (The Rejoicing World) describes the greatest of all Medici marriage festival entries and equestrian ballets, which was composed and performed in honor of the marriage of Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany, with Margherita Luisa d'Orleans. The elaborate, all-day performance took place in the amphitheater of the Boboli Gardens on July 1, 1661. Alessandro Carducci, the court choreographer, is credited with having conceived this event, which was directed by Alessandro Visconti. Ferdinando Tacca designed the scenography and Domenico Anglesi composed the music. The festival book Il mondo festeggiante was printed before the event in a fine deluxe edition for an elite audience of peers. The book contains a prose description of the equestrian ballet interspersed with Giovanni Andrea Moniglia's verses for the songs. The narration is illustrated with three folded etchings by Stefano Della Bella (1610-1642), the court artist. While the immediate function of this publication was to act as a guide to the action, the ultimate purpose for this and other festival publications of the courts of Europe was to broadcast and perpetuate for all times the festivities that celebrated important political affairs such as coronations, marriages, births, official entries and state visits, and other occasions of state. The three splendid Della Bella etchings are some of the most arresting of all festival imagery. The first pictures a backdrop constructed for the huge half-oval behind the palace with a circle of obelisks placed at the center. Groups of decorated coaches are surrounded by foot soldiers and a circle of riders. Atlas with the heavens on his shoulders is most visible in the center of the etchings, having come to tell those on earth that Hercules, along with the sun god Apollo and the goddess of the moon Diana, have descended from heaven to attend these nuptials. The second etching pictures Atlas and his globe (now split apart) transformed into Mount Atlas after he has announced his reason for coming to Florence. The final etching shows the positions and notations of choreography for the twelve figures of the elaborate equestrian ballet, which concluded the evening. The baroque festival entry followed by an elaborate horse ballet was an outgrowth of the medieval tournament and the even older "semi-choreographic form known to the Greek and Romans" (Reade). As Strong writes, "with the advent of the Medici as dukes, the tournament became a norm of festival art, and an ideal vehicle whereby to express the new order of things." Whereas the medieval tournament was essentially a training exercise, much like the modern military full-dress parade, the baroque triumphal procession and equestrian ballet became an allegorical and symbolic attempt to create a link between the rulers of state and the ancient gods, one in which princes, dukes, and monarchs were invited to ride on horseback or in ornate carriages, and in which themes were created of the intervention of Greek gods in order to create a cosmic harmony on earth. There seems to be a strong connection between the form of the early ballet du cour and the 17th century equestrian ballet. It is worth noting that they were both staged for the same essential purpose: to demonstrate State power and prestige. Both ballet and equestrian ballet, moreover, were arranged and decorated with the same allegorical concepts in mind: the arrival of ancient gods descending to earth in order to create a celestial harmony by crowning the heads of the temporal world. Carducci was referred to as "the inventor of the ballet and the battle" (Clarke and Crisp). He was undoubtedly the master of this form in the 17th century and used the model of Il Mondo Festeggiante for the even more elaborate Viennese horse ballets, particularly the famous La Contesa dell'Aria e dell'Acque (1667).
