La veduta di Napoli è contornata ai lati dai costumi tipici dell'epoca e sopra dalle vedute delle principali città del Regno di Napoli: Fondi, Gaeta, Caiazzo, Pozzuoli, Sulmona, Tricarico, Taranto e Gallipoli. Una ricca descrizione della città e dei luoghi notabili è allegata in basso. Giovan Battista Cavazza è pittore ed incisore bolognese, allievo di Guido Reni. La sua opera cartografica più famosa è un mappamondo in proiezione mercatoriana datato 1643. Magnifico esemplare di questa rarissima veduta di Napoli.

Giuseppe Longhi was a prolific typographer and publisher and was also quite famous for the publication of books.

The view of Naples is decorated on the two sides with the costumes of the time and, on the upper part, with the views of the main cities of the Reign of Naples: Fondi, Gaeta, Caiazzo, Pozzuoli, Sulmona, Tricarico, Taranto and Gallipoli.

        Piazza di S. M. in Trastevere ampliata da N. S. papa Alesandro VII

      1665. "Splendida e rara veduta della piazza di S. Maria in Trastevere, con la bella fontana al centro, e la facciata della basilica sullo sfondo. Nel 1659 Alessandro VII modificò la forma e la posizione della fontana - che venne così a trovarsi esattamente a metà tra la facciata della chiesa e il lato orientale opposto. L'opera fu affidato al Bernini, che nel 1658 completò la nuova fontana, innalzandola su gradini, apponendo sui lati della vasca ottagonale un'epigrafe commemorativa e gli stemmi di papa Alessandro VII, e aggiungendo quattro coppie di conchiglie su lati alterni. Esemplare dalla prima edizione de"" Il nuovo teatro delle fabriche, et edificii, in prospettiva di Roma moderna, sotto il felice pontificato di N. S. papa Alessandro VII..."". In tre volumi, editi da G. G. de Rossi tra il 1665 e il 1669, illustra le fabbriche realizzate o ampliate durante il pontificato di Alessandro VII Chigi, mentre il III si riferisce alle chiese restaurate dal pontefice Clemente IX. L'opera aveva lo scopo di divulgare la nuova immagine di Roma, con i suoi palazzi, chiese e giardini, secondo un progetto unitario di espansione urbana, in sintonia con i criteri del colto e raffinato Fabio Chigi : il papa, infatti, decise di aprire nuove strade, di abbellire con fontane e monumenti la città, anche a dimostrazione della potenza finanziaria e culturale della sua famiglia. Prima di allora l'incisione di veduta a Roma, che pure aveva prodotto numerose serie dì stampe da E. Dupérac a G. Lauro, si era interessata principalmente alla ripresa della città antica. Bisognerà attendere proprio il completamento dei rinnovamenti urbanistici e delle realizzazioni architettoniche dei papi seicenteschi, per assistere alla diffusione di raccolte dedicate alla città moderna. Dopo la morte del Falda, verrà pubblicato ""Il quarto libro del nuovo teatro delli palazzi in prospettiva di Roma mooderna dato in luce sotto il felice pontificato di nostro signore papa Innocenzo XII"", opera di Alessandro Specchi, edito nel 1699. Incisione su rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Magnifico esemplare, nel primo stato avanti il numero." "From the first edition of "" Il nuovo teatro delle fabriche, et edificii, in prospettiva di Roma moderna, sotto il felice pontificato di N. S. papa Alessandro VII..."". Etching, in the first state before the page number, in perfect condition. One of the most important architectural projects of the seventeenth century was the urban renovation of Rome. Under the brilliant leadership of Pope Alessandro VII (1655 - 1667), Rome dramatically emerged as one of the most modern and beautiful cities of the new Baroque age. Within several decades spacious roadways were constructed, monumental buildings arose, and many public squares appeared with elaborate fountains and monuments. To be sure, this massive undertaking was meant to underline the absolute power of the Papacy but it also brought forth a new flowering of Italian art and architecture. The Nuovo Teatro was initiated in 1665 to depict the new Rome in a series of etchings. What it gave to future generations was a magnificent historical record of views etched by two of Italy's greatest architectural artists. The printing and publishing of these important etchings was entrusted to Giacomo de Rossi (1626 - 1691), the head of the most dominant Roman publishing house. ( Sons and nephews of de Rossi, in fact, continued the publishing house until 1738 when the business was sold to Pope Clement XII to form the basis of the Regia Calcografia.) Altogether, four sets of Nuovo Teatro were created during the seventeenth century. Volumes one and two were both published in the year of 1665 and dealt mainly in views of the new piazzas, gardens, terraces and their surrounding buildings. Volume 3 was published in 1669 and concentrated upon the newly constructed churches of Rome. Every plate from the first three sets was both designed and etched by the influential architectural artist, Giovanni Battista Falda (1643 - 1678). For reasons unknown the fourth and final volume (52 etchings) did not appear until 1699. It was published by Giacomo's successor, Domenico de Rossi, and featured views of the palaces and stately homes of Rome. Each plate was designed and etched by the famous architect and etcher, Alessandro Specchi (1668 - 1729)." Roma Rome 285 173

        Quatuor D.N. Jesu Christi evangeliorum. Versiones perantiquae duae, Gothica scil. et Anglo-Saxonica.

      Dordrechti: Typis & sumptibus Junianis; Excudebant Henricus & Joannes Essaei 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). 2 parts in 1 vol. [9] ff., 565, [3] pp.; [12] ff., 431 pp.. 1665 This is the first printing of the Gospels in Gothic and the second of them in Anglo-Saxon; it is also the first edition of Ulfila's Gothic version of the Gospels — based on the Codex Argenteus — parallel with the Anglo-Saxon version, which is based on the 1571 Day printing of the Anglo-Saxon Gospels. The presentation is double-column, with the Gothic to the left. The volume opens with a handsome architectural engraved title-page by A[braham Dircksz van] Santvoort (1624–69), featuring the four evangelists with their symbols and the tetragrammaton, preceding the typographic one. Thomas Marshall (1621–85) was the work's chief editor and later was rector of Lincoln College, Oxford. His assistant on the large project was François du John, the Younger, (1589–1677), whose Gothic–Latin dictionary with its own pagination ([12] ff., 431 pp.) and title-page — "Gothicum glossarium, quo pleraque Argentei Codicis vocabula explicantur ... praemittuntur ei Gothicum, Runicum, Anglo-Saxonicum, aliáque alphabeta. Operâ Francisci Junii" — follows the Gospels. Darlow and Moule (4557) observe: "Beyond their interest to the student of textual criticism, these fragments possess special value for the philologist as preserving what is 'by several centuries the oldest specimen of Teutonic speech.'" Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Late 17th- or early 18th-century Cambridge style calf; recently well rebacked with blind-tooled device in four of the five spine compartments, a very dark brown leather spine label neatly gilt, and new endpapers. Despite provenance, NO library markings. => A very nice copy.

Fu stampato a Leida dagli eredi e la vedova di John Elzevier. Si noterà che un'altra edizione dello stesso data in Peter Hammer ha una merenda diversa: (2) 501pp. e (2) 493pp. e sembra quindi di contenere meno il testo di quella presentata; è la curiosità inspiegabile.

Bassompierres fu imprigionato nella Bastiglia nel 1631 per partecipare alla Giornata di gonzi; ha dedicato la sua detenzione dodici anni a scrivere le sue memorie (Journal della mia vita) e le sue ambasciate saranno emessi nel 1668, oltre ad essere uno dei signori più completi del suo tempo, ha continuato Bassompierres due carriere parallele luminose, Enrico IV e Luigi XIII, militare e diplomatico. Questi ricordi sono sempre stati particolarmente assaggiato, portano il sigillo della amarezza della prigionia e sono opera di un gentiluomo francese. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare. Elle a été imprimée à Leyde par les héritiers et la veuve de Jean Elzevier. On remarquera qu'une autre édition à la même date chez Pierre Marteau possède une collation différente : (2) 501pp. et (2) 493pp. et semble donc contenir moins de texte que celle que nous présentons ; c'est une curiosité non élucidée. Reliure en pleine basane blonde d'époque marbrée. Dos à nerfs orné de fleurons cloisonnés. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin noir. Coiffe de tête du tome 1 en partie arrachée ; un manque en tête du tome 2 et un en queue. Un manque d'1,5cm le long du mors supérieur (travail de vers). Coins pour la plupart émoussés. Tome I légèrement plus grand de 0,5cm que le tome II. Une tache d'encre translucide en page de titre du volume II sur le fleuron. Exemplaire plutôt frais. Bassompierre fut emprisonné à la Bastille en 1631 pour avoir participé à la Journée des dupes ; il consacra sa détention de douze années à écrire ses mémoires (Journal de ma vie) puis ses ambassades, qui paraîtront en 1668. En plus d'être un des gentilshommes parmi les plus accomplis de son temps, Bassompierre poursuivit deux carrieres brillantes et parallèles sous Henri IV et Louis XIII, militaire et diplomatique. Ces mémoires ont toujours été particulièrement goûtés, elles portent le sceau de l'amertume de l'emprisonnement et sont l'oeuvre d'un grand gentilhomme français.

        Scepsis Scientifica: or, Contest Ignorance, the way to Science; In an Essay of The Vanity of Dogmatizing, and Confident Opinion. With a Reply to the Exceptions Of the Learned Thomas Albius

      London: Printed by E. Cotes, for Henry Eversden, 1665 - Sole edition, 8vo, (xxx), 184, (16), 92, (4) pp, lacking the half title, and with two leaves of the preliminaries (imprimatur and advertisement) bound at the end. Engraved coat of arms of the Royal Society, title and subsequent leaf with some chipping to the edges, the latter with some staining, mostly mild marginal browning throughout. Contemporary sheep with blind stamped rules, neatly rebacked. A reply to Thomas White's "An Exclusion of Sceptics from All Title to Dispute", published the same year, which was itself a reply to Glanvill's own "The Vanity of Dogmatizing" (1661, of which this title is a reworking). The book was presented to the Royal Society in December 1664 and Glanvill was elected a member the following week. A Church of England clergyman who had rejected his own family's Puritan beliefs, Glanvill contributed some minor researches to the Society and published widely on science, witchcraft and religion, sparking some lively exchanges of pamphlets, including one with a Puritan minister, Robert Crosse, which led to Crosse composing ".anti-Glanvill ballads to be sung in alehouses" (ODNB).

No obstante, buen ejemplar, con todos los grabados completos y limpios salvo el cerco de humedad en punta superior.- // Proc.: Sin datos.- // Más de treinta años después de haber impreso su 'Arte y uso de Architectura' (1633), San Nicolás dio cumplida satisfacción al compromiso que declaró en ella de publicar esta segunda parte. Tanta demora se debió, en buena medida, a que la primera parte, célebre por explicar cómo construir ?falsas? cúpulas que por ser remate y no obra propiamente dicha abarataban mucho las construcciones, fue impuganda, con la pretensión incluso de que fuese quemada, por el santanderino Pedro de La Peña. Por eso Laurencio San Nicolás dedicó los cinco primeros capítulos de esta segunda parte a dar una cumplida respuesta a las objeciones que puso aquél. Tras ella, en los siguientes 45 capítulos expone los órdenes arquitectónicos de los grandes: Vitrubio, Vignola, Palladio. Junto a estas exposiciones y sus ejemplos gráficos, que hacen de la obra un verdadero tratado histórico de arquitectura, esta segunda parte es sumamente interesante porque al exponer las ordenanzas de Toledo -y los comentarios sobre las de Madrid- que regían tanto las obras y fábricas en sí como la actividad de todos los gremios implicados en su ejecución, proporciona una visión de conjunto de la práctica constructiva en la España del XVII. Aunque a veces se cite la obra como impresa en 1663, porque el grabado de la portada se esculpió ese año, y pese a que las aprobaciones, licencias y censuras estén todas fechadas en 1664, la obra no salió a la venta hasta después de imprimirse su última pieza, la fe de erratas, en febrero de 1665.- // Refs.: CCPB 000053283-5, 000055939-3, 000308944-4 y 000794858-1.

        Tiberias Sive Commentarius

      Basel - Johannis Buxtorfi, 1665 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce 1665 edition of Johannes Buxtorf's Tiberias Sive Commentarius edited by his son, Johannes Buxtorf. Rebound in card. Scarce. Last seen at auction in 1977 in poor condition and there sold for $100. This?text is written in Latin and Hebrew. Rebound by a previous owner, with their ink inscription on the front pastedown. With an informative ink inscription on the front free-endpaper, 'This work contains a learned exposition and defence of the Masoretic doctrines; and was most?learnedly assailed in the Arcanum Punctuations of Capel. ' - Orme's Bibl. Biblica, p. 70. Johannes Buxtorf, 1564 1629, was a celebrated Hebraist, member of a family of Orientalists; professor of Hebrew for thirty-nine years at Basel and was known by the title, Master of the Rabbis. His massive tome, De Synagoga Judaica, scrupulously documents the customs and society of German Jewry in the early modern period. Buxtorf studied under Heinrich Bullinger at Zrich, and Theodore Beza at Geneva. Tiberias, sive Commentarius, first published in 1620, was improved and enlarged by J. Buxtorf the younger in 1665. It is named from the great school of Jewish criticism which had its seat in the town of Tiberias. It was in this work that Buxtorf controverted the views of Elias Levita regarding the late origin of the Hebrew vowel points, a subject which gave rise to the controversy between Louis Cappel and his son Johannes Buxtorf II. Johannes Buxtorf the Younger, 1599 1664, was son of the scholar Johannes Buxtorf, and a Protestant Christian Hebraist. Before the age of thirteen he matriculated at the University of Basel, and in December 1615 graduated as Master of Arts there. He went to Heidelberg, where he continued his studies under David Pyrus, Abraham Scultetus, Alting, and others. Buxtorf succeeded his father, after the death of the latter, in the chair of Hebrew at the university; and so closely did he follow in his father's footsteps that it became proverbial to say, Non ovum ovo similius quam Buxtorf pater et filius. He gained an almost equal reputation, in the same domain. Like his father, Buxtorf maintained relations with several learned Jews, and was also engaged in the sale of Hebrew books. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including slight bumping. Internally the pages have slight browning and scattered spotting, with occasional browned tidemarks that does not affect the visibility of the text. There are very occasional small ink annotations, and an?Ex Libris?ink inscription on the front free-endpaper. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Joan. Henrici Meibomii De flagrorum usu in re veneria. Et lumborum, renumque officio.

      Although the imprint information on the title-page of this "Treatise of the Use of Flogging in Venereal Affairs" says the book was printed in London, this is clearly a false imprint, as is the case with the other Latin-language editions with "Londini" on the title-page (1665, 1784). The first true London printing of Membom's work on flagellation (and treatment of lumbago) happened in 1718 in George Sewell's English-language translation. There were several subsequent editions. Meibom (1590-1655) was a German physician and professor of medicine at the University of Helmstedt, although because of war and unstable political situations in Germany during his life, he moved several times to take new posts.His work on the use of flagellation in love making (first published in 1639) was a multi-century best seller in Latin and, beginning in the 18th century, in English, French, and other translations. => Virtually all of the editions, whether in Latin or not, were read to death or very effectively suppressed. Of this pocket-size edition, searches of NUC, WorldCat, ESTC, COPAC, KVK, and CCPBE, locate only three copies in Britain, none in Spain, four in Germany, and => one in the U.S. Provenance: Shelf number written on verso of title-page: "Lxxviii. k. 22."

      - Amsterdam, Baltes Boekholt (col.: Paulus Warnaer), 1665. Contemporary vellum, bumped and stained. Inside some minor stains. With an engraved frontispiece and 29 engraved plates.Titlepage and fist gathering worn at the edges, traces of use. Dutch translation of 'A relation of a journey' by George Sandys (1578-1644), one of the most famous travel books of the seventeenth century. Sandys travelled to the Levant in 1610 and spent a year in Turkey, Palestine and Egypt before returng to England to become a bishop. His observations first appeared in 1615 and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. Between 1616 en 1673 another 6 English editions appeared. In 1653 the first edition of the Dutch translation was published in Amsterdam by Jacob Benjamin. The translation (by ‘J.G.’ ) has in the past erroneously been attributed to J. Glazemaker, but it was in fact made by the mennonite Amsterdam pharmacist Johannes Grindal (1616-1696), who translated more than 20 English books into Dutch. A second edition appeared in Utrecht by Lambert Roeck in 1654. The present copy belongs to the third and final edition, published by the Amsterdam bookseller Baltes Boekholt in 1665 (printed by Paulus Warnaer). B0113 The book is illustrated with an attractive frontispice that shows the religious nature of the book, with full figure portraits of Achmet and Iris with their attributes and with four symbolic medallions. This frontispice looks like the one of a London edition by R. Field in 1621, but is different in the details. Clearly this earlier English version was used as the example. Some of the plates inside this Dutch copy are different from the one from London and some are the same. There are different types of illustrations: some full page plates show historical and biblical scenes from the countries that Sandys visited, such as Chios and Turkey. There are also plates of city plans and noteworthy buildings such as the Temple in Jerusalem. All these plates do not appear in the London copy. From there on follow in-text topograpic plates that are oddly maneristic in the way the landscape and clouds are depicted. These are the same as the ones in London. More research is needed on the re-use of the plates between the Dutch and English edition and why some plates had to be replaced and others not.

With title-page printed in red and black, engraved frontispiece depicting the emperor of China with globe and a convicted criminal (small part of blank margin missing), engraved portrait of the author, large folding engraved map of China and Formosa (mounted on Japanese paper), 2 engraved coats of arms, 34 double-page engraved plates and 110 large engravings in the text. (8),208;258,(10) pp.First edition. - Between 1640 and 1644 Nieuhof was serving as an official of the Dutch West India Company (WIC) in Brazil, but by 1665 he was at Batavia, in Java, as a servant of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). In 1665 Nieuhof published what is regarded as the definitive account of the Dutch embassy to Peking, and it is for this that he is best known (Howgego p.752). Nieuhof's account presented the Dutch reader with the most substantial and detailed description of the Middle Kingdom yet published. It contains information from the most important Jesuit sources and adds to them the observations of one of the first Dutchmen to travel in China's interior and visit the capital. Nieuhof's book is lavishly illustrated (providing) European readers with more realistic visual images of China's landscape and people than ever before (Lach-Kley, Asia in the making, III, p.484. This first embassy of the Dutch East India Company of Pieter de Goyer and Jakob de Keyser to the court of China in the years 1655-57, describes all the events during this mission, the country, people, flora & fauna, etc. It is one of the very few non-Jesuit sources of the period. It is richly illustrated with large views of all ports and places visited, starting with Batavia, and with numerous nice text-engravings illustrating in detail Chinese life in the 17th century. The illustrations, engraved after Nieuhof's relatively accurate drawings exercised a considerable influence on the European conception of China and were widely used and reproduced (Löwendahl p. 65). The Paolinxi-plate mentioned in the index is actually only present in the Latin edition. - (The plate Porceleine toorn added from another copy). - An important book of the first Dutch eye-witness account of China..Tiele 800; Landwehr, VOC, 539; Cat. NHSM I, p.499; Cordier, B.S., col.2344-2345; Lust 539-541; Löwendahl, Sino-Western relations, 147 (3rd ed. only).

        A Vindication of Stone-Heng Restored:

      London, under S Dunstan's Church in Fleet-street.: Tho. Bassett, 1665 VG, 1st ed, 1665, 11 illustrations within text. In modern quarter calf with cloth, occasional spot. Spine, raised bands, some blind tooling, black stamped titles. Internally, imprimatur leaf (with the tipped in engraving of Stone Heng), [8], 92, 97-232 pp, 11 numbered engravings within text, as issued, lacks the final errata leaf, title page in red & black within double ruled borders, pagination skips from 92 to 97 (printers error present in all copies), no loss of text catchword or text, its continuous, new endpapers, text block edges sprinkled red, minimal scattered foxing, edge wear & soiled pages, faint ink name at head of tp (1715). (ESTC R12913. Wing 1203. Allibone 2621). Webb was a British architect & student of Inigo Jones (1573-1652). Jones theory was that Stonehenge was built as a Roman temple, open to the sky & dedicated to the god Coelus. In 1663 Dr Walter Charleton in his Chorea Gigantum, attributed Stonehenge to the Danes. Webb countered with the current work which is both a rebuttal of Charleton & an invaluable account of his life, character and work of (as Webb put it) The Vitruvius of his age. See ODNB. Title continues: in which the orders and rules of architecture observed by the ancient Romans, are discussed. Together with the customs and manners of several nations of the world in matters of building of greatest antiquity. As also an historical narration of the most memorable actions of the Danes in England.

        A Chronicle of the Kings of England,

      London: printed by E. Cotes, for G. Saubridg, and T. Williams,, 1665. From the time of the Romans Government Unto the Death of King James Â… Whereunto is added, The Reign of King Charles the First, with A Continuation Â… in this Fourth Edition, To the Coronation of Â… King Charles the Second Â… Folio (343 x 212 mm). Contemporary English red morocco, gilt-tooled in a cottage-roof panel design with gilt-stamped supralibros (Clarendon) on both covers, edges gilt, from the workshop of Samuel Mearne. Housed in a burgundy flat back cloth solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Additional engraved title by W. Marshall, decorative woodcut initials, last leaf with longitudinal label. With 4 pp. contemporary manuscript notes laid in. Foot of spine chipped, extremities rubbed, small hole in pages 275 and 801 touching one letter, quire Rrr and a few other leaves browned, an exceptionally handsome copy. From the library of Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon, Lord Chancellor and chronicler of the English Civil War; a superbly apposite association, in a handsome binding from the Mearne workshop which was responsible for the most splendid gold-tooled bindings produced during the reign of Charles II. Clarendon's arms do not appear to have been part of the original binding design and they were probably added sometime before December 1667, when he went into exile for the second time. The book was presumably intended for the newly completed Clarendon House, which had what John Evelyn called "a very ample library" (reputedly numbering some 6,350 volumes). Baker's Chronicle was first published in 1643, two years before his death. It was reprinted posthumously with some revisions in 1653, and the third edition of 1660 has a continuation to the end of 1658 by Edward Phillips, John Milton's nephew. The account of Charles II's restoration, which first appears in this fourth edition, was attributed to General Monck's brother-in-law, Sir Thomas Clarges. Provenance: 1) Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon (1609-1674, Lord Chancellor, supralibros); 2) Henry Jeffery Flower, Viscount Ashbrook (engraved armorial bookplate); 3) Richard Dawson, First Earl of Dartrey (1817-1897, engraved armorial bookplate); 4) Viscount Mersey, Bignor Park (1840-1929, bookplate); 5) sold at auction, Christie's, 16 December 1991, lot 183 (through Bernard Quaritch) to Robert S. Pirie (bookplate).
