Paul Theodor van Brussel (1754 Zuid Polsbroek (Schoonhoven) - Amsterdam 1795)
. Aquarell auf Papier. verso bezeichnet (signiert ?): "P. F. van Brussel", 9,5 x 16,3 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Die Stilllebenmalerei des 18. Jahrhunderts konnte auf eine ganze Reihe hervorragender Vorgänger zurückblicken: Georg Flegel, Abraham Mignon, Jan Davidsz. de Heem. Die Gruppe ließe sich beliebig erweitern und Künstler wie Jan van Huysum oder Rachel Ruysch waren noch selbst bis weit in das 18. Jahrhundert hinein aktiv. Diese Blütezeit des Stilllebens in jeder erdenklichen Form warf aber auch einen langen Schatten auf die Spätgeborenen, die sich entweder durch perfekte Erfüllung der hohen Vorgaben oder durch radikale Innovation bewähren mussten. Zwar war das Stillleben in der akademischen Hierarchie weiterhin von letzter Bedeutung, doch es erfreute sich bei Sammlern immer noch großer Beliebtheit. Paul van Brussel gehörte zu jener Generation Maler, die mit dem Ballast der Tradition umzugehen hatten. Für ihn bedeutete dies, in den Grenzen seines Faches zur Perfektion zu gelangen. Die großen Vorbilder Jan van Huysum und Jan van Os stehen bei seinen Gemälden immer Pate. Die Käuferschaft dankte es ihm mit zahlreichen Aufträgen und viele Kopien nach seinen Gemälden bezeugen die hohe Wertschätzung. Unsere beiden Zeichnungen verdeutlichen allerdings einen anderen, weniger konventionellen Zugriff auf die Objekte seiner Malerei. In starker Nahsicht zeigt van Brussel diese Quitte mit ihrem charakteristischen Flaum. Anders als in den durchkomponierten großen Blumengebinden oder Früchtearrangements steht hier die Konzentration auf das einz … [Click Below for Full Description]

[AUTOGRAPH]. MARIANI, Sabino.
For Mariani, see his entry on www.treccani.it. Letter written in Italian by Sabino Mariani (1665-1721) in Rome, Papal ambassador and financial officer of the Apostolic Dataria, to the Priory[?] of the Province[?] of Viterbo at Soriano concerning financial matters. In 1697 Mariani was already making plans to go to China in connection with the Propaganda Fide's efforts there. In 1702 he left for China as part of a diplomatic and missionary expedition, accompanying the papal legate Cardinal Charles Maillard de Tournon (1668-1710), appointed by Pope Clement XI. This embassy was charged with the task of inspecting and reporting on the general state of the missions and to settle the Christian rites controversy regarding the Chinese converts.With some old folds, a small hole in first leaf, slight affecting 2 letters of one word, and some very minor foxing. The recipient tore the paper around the seal to open the letter, but part of the piece torn out, including the entire seal, still survives as it was secured with wax to another part of the leaf for sending.

RAPIN, R.
Paris, Typographia Regia, 1665. 4to (255 x 198 mm). pp. (xxvi including frontispiece), 219 with engraved frontispiece, engraved vignette with royal arms on title, nine engraved head- and tailpieces, and six engraved initials. Contemporary red morocco, spine in 6 compartments with gilt ornaments and lettering, sides with gilt coat of arms of Louis XIV and gilt border lines, inside dentelles, gilt edges. A superbly bound copy of the first edition of Rapin's celebrated poem on gardens, and a fine piece of book design. René Rapin (1621-1687), a Jesuit, wrote this work in imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics'. It is divided into four books, on the flower garden, parkland and trees, water, and the orchard. It is followed by a work in prose, a debate between the 'ancients' and 'moderns' on gardening styles, in which Rapin endorses the 'modern' style. This work enjoyed immense renown, and was translated into English by John Evelyn."On the threshold of this period the French garden found its earliest poets. René Rapin, the learned Jesuit who wrote so many books, published in 1665 a poem called 'Hortorum libri quattuor'. This was in undisguised imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics', but aimed at giving a supplement on the province of the garden, which the Roman poet had neglected. Rapin had already seen something of the development of gardens in the grand siècle, and this appears in much of what he wrote; but he chiefly concerns himself with the gardens of the time of Maria de Medici and Henry IV. All that he writes in his first book, 'The flower garden', is what is demanded by the usual theor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Performed by Ihon Speede. Double-page engraved map, fine contemporary outline hand colour, upper left and right margin skilfully repaired. The map bears the imprint of Roger Rea the Elder and Younger. The Reas had purchased the rights to Speed's work from William Garrett in 1589, who had previously purchased them from the widow of William Humble in the same year. Skelton suggests that the father and son intended a new edition of the atlas for the Restoration of 1660. However, the atlas would appear not to have been published until 1665. This is borne out by an advertisement in the Term Catalogue by the subsequent owners of the plates, Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell, in 1675: "Mr John Speed's... Geography of the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland... together with his Prospect... all in one entire Volume, hath been, for seven Years past, out of Print, the greatest part of an Impression, then newly Printed, being destroyed by the late dreadful Fire, 1666". This is borne out by the rarity of the Rea edition of the atlas.
