ROSA SALVATOR
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.

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 Nobilt … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bellagamba nel 1612 - 13), curata da Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius, corredata di 400 splendide figure in silografia di pesci e cetacei, anche a piena pagina.

Artist: Mortier Peter ( - 1711 ) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1695. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 45 x 54,5; - description : Map shows Uruguay, partly Paraguay, east part of Argentinia and Rio do sul ( Brasilia); - vita of the artist: Pieter Mortier (1661ñ1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Mortier had a partnership with Johannes Covens I (1697-1774) and founded the map publishing company Covens & Mortier (1721-1866). Mortier, being French himself, had easy access to French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. Consequently, much of Mortier's business was built upon leveraging the sophisticated Dutch printing establishment to issue embellished high quality editions of previously contemporary French maps. In the greater context of global cartography, this was a significant advantage as most Dutch map publishes had, at this point, fallen into the miasma of reprinting their own outdated works. By contrast, the cartographers of France were producing the most accurate and up to date charts anywhere. Mortier's cartographic work culminated in the magnificent nautical atlas, Le Neptune Francois. Upon Pierre's death in 1711 this business was inherited by his widow. In 1721 his son Cornelius Mortier took over the day to day operation of the firm. Cornelius partnered with his brother-in-law Jean Covens to form one of history's great cartographic partnerships - Covens and Mortier - which continued to publish maps and atlases until about 18 … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Buddhism).
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 .

ESTC R209943 Wing attributes authorship to George Rogers (1618-1697) a medical man who trained in Padua and then went into practice in London, eventually becoming the president of the College of Physicians. 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 cuck … [Click Below for Full Description]

Curtius Rufus, Quintus
London: Printed by E. Alsop & Robert Wood Small 4to (18.5 cm; 7.5"). [3 of 4] ff., 259, 264–84, 281–311, [1] pp., without the initial blank and with considerable mispagination but not lacking any text.. 1661 Biographical details of Robert Codrington (1601–65) are fewer than one would like, but we know that he was a translator and writer who was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford, and had a "thirty-year career of publishing translations from French, Latin, and Spanish, and occasional works of his own" (DNB online). This is the second edition of his translation of Curtius Rufus' Historia Alexandri Magni, the first having appeared in 1652 with the title, The Ten Books of Quintus Curtius Rufus. The work was conceived during the English Civil War and carried a stirring foreword, "To the reader in general and especially to the souldier," that begins, "In these Martial times, if any thing [sic] can excite you yet higher to honourable Achievements, it will be the perusal of this History. . . . " That rhapsody is repeated in this post-Restoration edition as well; but the original dedication to Baptist Noel, Third Viscount Campden (1611–82), has been replaced with one to the restored king, James, Duke of York. The work is printed in roman, the title and the printer's device within a double-line border and the text with woodcut initials and two handsome woodcut headpieces. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and ESTC locate only four copies in U.S. libraries. 20th-century full brown calf, round spine, raised bands, gilt spine extra; lacks the initial blank, else complete. => A clean, worthy … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Buddhism).
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.

BOYLE, ROBERT
Oxford: Printed by Hen. Hall, 1663; London: Printed for Henry Herringman, 1661. FIRST EDITIONS of both works. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
