[Subscription receipt for the Lexicon heptaglotton]
[London], 2. V. 1664. 1 f. (c. 190:85 mm). With autogr. signature and papered seal. Payment receipt for the final installment for one of the earliest works in British printing history published by subscription: "Received this second day of May in the year of our Lord God 1664 of John Gill Esquire the summe of twenty shillings being the full intire payment of four pounds by him Subscribed or Promised towards the Printing of a Lexicon and Grammars of the Orientall Languages: Witnesse my hand and seal, the day and yeare above written [.]". The receipt is filled in and signed by the theologian and Semitic scholar Dr. Edmund Castell, and the work subscribed is Castell’s life-work, the ‘Lexicon Heptaglotton’. Upon this work, "which has long challenged the admiration, and defied the competition, of foreigners; and which [.] has raised an eternal monument of literary fame" (Dibdin I, 34), Castell had been at work since 1651; it was published in two folio volumes in 1669, five years after Gill completed his payment and twelve years after the publication of Brian Walton’s six-volume polyglot Bible edition, in the preparation of which Castell had been a valuable help and to which the ‘Lexicon’ was issued as a supplement. In his DNB article on Castell, the orientalist and historian Stanley Lane-Poole recounts the story of the Lexicon’s composition, told with "sad simplicity" in the dedication to Charles II: "The eighteenth year of composition, he writes, has been reached, and that long period has been filled with unremitting toil of seldom less than sixteen or eighteen hours a day, wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition.THE RARE UNAUTHORIZED FIRST EDITION Bound in contemporary sheepskin, re-cased. Fine internally This was the only edition published in PhilipsÕ lifetime. PhilipsÕ died of smallpox in June 1664, five months after the appearance of this publication. The first authorized edition did not appear until 1667. ÒThe daughter of a London merchant, Katherine Fowler [her maiden name] was probably the first English woman poet to have her work published. She married a gentleman of substance from Cardigan, James Philips, and seems to have moved effortlessly into the literary circle adorned by Vaughan, Cowley, and Jeremy Taylor. she was best known by her pseudonym ÔOrindaÕ and the name appears on the collection of her Letters (1705), which give a useful picture of the early seventeenth century literary world. Her translation of CorneilleÕs ÔPompeeÕ was performed in Dublin (1663) and a collection of her verses was published posthumously (1664).Ó (quoted from The Cambridge Guide to English Literature, Michael Stapleton) It is truly a rare treat for us to be able to offer the first appearance in print of the matchless Orinda, the first female English poet to be published. Mrs. PhilipsÕ poems were circulated in manuscript, and secured for her a c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anche le pagine di testo sono corredate da numerose illustrazioni silografiche di rade, porti e profili costieri. Le carte nautiche riprendono in modo chiaro l'opera di Anthoni Jacobsz (1606-1650) "Gran libro di itinerari del mar Mediterraneo", di grande rarit?, pubblicato nel 1654 da Goos. Pergamena settecentesca con titolo in oro su tassello. Tagli azzurrati. Esemplare molto bello, ben inchiostrato, del celebre atlante nautico. Minimi difetti alle ultime carte con rinforzo marginale delle ultime due e saltuarie macchie.Lo specchio del mare, atlante-portolano del Mediterraneo pubblicato nella sua prima edizione a Genova nel 1664 ed in seconda edizione nel 1679.Poco si conosce su tale capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, che "a sue spese" fece incidere le pi? accreditate carte nautiche disponibili sul bacino del Mediterraneo dell'epoca. Le scarne notizie ci informano che l'atlante - di pregevole fattura - presenta alcuni di questi documenti elaborati negli anni precedenti dallo stesso Levanto insieme ad altri tratti da un'opera olandese, De Lichtende Colomne ofte Zeespigel, pubblicata una ventina di anni prima da Anthoni Jacobsz e riutilizzata in seguito da numerosi altri cartografi (Goos, Donker, Tohrnton, Van Keulen ed altri).

BALLARD, Robert.]
Paris, Robert Ballard, 1664. - Small 8vo, ff. 35, [1], title within elaborate woodcut border, type-set music throughout, woodcut initials; second half of volume rather damp-stained at gutter (affecting text, but paper still strong), ownership inscription cut away from head of title; modern vellum.First edition; very rare. This is the seventh instalment in the remarkable series Livres d'airs de differents autheurs à deux parties which had been initiated by the music publisher Robert Ballard (III) in 1658 and which was to end, thirty-seven volumes later, in 1694.The composers of the thirty-four airs for two voices contained in the present work are not named, but songs can be attributed with some certainty to Bénigne de Bacilly (one), Michel Lambert (one), Sébastien Le Camus (one) and Jean-Baptiste Lully (three). Possible composers of other songs are Jacques Champion de Chambonnières, Chevalier, Honoré d'Ambruis, Lambert, Le Camus, Lully, Louis de Mollier, Etienne Moulinié, and Perdigal (see Anne-Madeleine Goulet, Paroles de musique (1658–1694). Catalogue des 'Livres d'airs de différents auteurs' publiés chez Ballard, 2007, pp. 116–7). Two of the pieces here are prefaced by a brief lute introduction; no doubt it was intended that the lute should continue to accompany for the duration of the song.Guillo, Ballard 1664-A; RISM Recueils p. 545, recording only three copies outside France (Bologna, Library of Congress and Newberry Library).

1664. FESTA DELLA PORCHETTA DI BOLOGNA. Evento tra i piu’ importanti nel panorama della festa barocca in Europa e unico al mondo per essere stato straordinariamente documentato, nei secoli XVII e XVIII, dalla pubblicazione di relazioni, da raffigurazioni dipinte e a stampa, dal canto di poeti e menestrelli. Una tradizione che ha inizio alla metà del XIII secolo, che prosegue senza interruzioni fino al 1796 e che si trasforma da “Palio” in “Spettacolo di piazza” alla fine del sec. XVI. Piazza Maggiore diventa il teatro più grande della città, accoglie la “Fiera dell’Assunta” del 15 Agosto, con le botteghe incastonate entro apparati scenografici spesso sontuosi e progettati da grandi architetti e scenografi. Nel giorno di “San Bartolomeo”, 24 Agosto, la Festa offre l’apoteosi finale con spettacoli allegorici, gare, tornei, giostre, parate di carri feste e balli, che si svolgevano sotto lo sguardo del Gonfaloniere, degli Anziani, dei loro ospiti e con grande partecipazione di popolo, terminando con il lancio della Porchetta operato dal cuoco degli Anziani. Straordinaria collezione di 19 incisioni originali, riferite a 17 rappresentazioni comprese tra il 1664 e il 1731. 1664 - 1671 – 1672 (a + b) – 1673 – 1680 - 1683 (2 di 3) – 1688 – 1691 – 1692 - 1703 (solo b) – 1705 - 1708 – 1713 - 1718 – 1721 – 1728 – 1731 (con didascalia descrittiva in sostituzione del libretto esplicativo, che quell’anno non fu stampato).
