        Entretiens sur la philosophie

      S.l.: s.n., 1673. EARLY EDITION. 12mo. [2], 54, 159 pp. Bound in contemporary French calf (joints and extremities rubbed, hinges cracked and quite tender). In good antiquarian condition, completely unsophisticated. Preserved in a brown cloth protective case Early edition, printed anonymously, of this defense of Cartesian doctrine on transubstantiation and the animal-machine, written by the leading contemporary advocate and teacher of Descartes's natural philosophy. Jacques Rohault (1618-1672), a native of Amiens, was a member of libertine circles in Paris, including that of Cyrano de Bergerac; he was also a friend of Moliere. Defender of Cartesianism, a teacher of mathematics, he exerted tremendous literary and scientific influence through his "public lectures" that he gave in his home once a week. In his last years Rohault was troubled by the political reaction to Cartesianism in France. In his work, "Entretiens sur la philosophie" (first printed in 1671), Rohault tried to establish the importance of Cartesian interpretations to theology. His "Entretiens sur la philosophie" is "essentially a defense of Descartes, dealing with controversial topics such as the relation between Descartes and Aristotle, Descartes' interpretation of the Eucharist and Descartes' ideas on the animal soul." (Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, p. 342). The work was published without Rohault's consent from one of the copies then circulating "in secret" -- (see Dennis Des Chene, "Cartesian Science: Regis and Rohault" in: A Companion to Early Modern Philosophy, 2008). Of the first edition of 1671, OCLC lists only four copies in the U.S. (Stanford, Univ. Illinois, Univ. Michigan, and Queens College). This is the anonymous printing of 1673, is even rarer than the first, with NO copies in the U.S., and only two copies worldwide: National Library of Sweden and the Historische Bibliothek der Stadt Rastatt. The present 1673 edition is distinguished by the inclusion of a 54-page "Discours sur les sujets traites dans les Entretiens" which is not present in the first edition. Unsigned, this contemporary discourse is a masterful exposition of Rohault's work. It has never been reprinted in any form. This is the ONLY copy of the "Entretiens" currently on the market; and ABPC lists NO copy at auction since 1978. PROVENANCE: the Sunderland copy (sale of the Bibliotheca Sunderlandiana, Puttick & Simpson, 1882, Fourth Portion, lot 10731) -- subsequently in the now-defunct Theological Institute of Connecticut (blind-stamps).

Durch offentliche Exhibition den 14. und 15. Sept. Anno 1672 vorgestellt. [..] Componiert, exhibiert und Dediciert durch Johann Caspar Weissenbach, Fürstl. Einsidlischer Raht, und geweßnen Ober-Vogt der Herrschaft Gachnang.

      Zu Zug Getruckt, Bey Jacob Ammon, Im Jahr 1673.. Kl.-8° (15.3 x 9.3 cm). Unpaginiert (152 Bll. + 6 Bll. Anhang mit gest. Musiknoten). Gest. allegor. Front. (etwas gebräunt u. knapp beschnitten, obere Aussenecke mit kleiner Wurmspur), 1 gest. (Falt-) Tafel (rechte, wohl gegengleiche Hälfte fehlt), etwas gest. Buchschmuck. Einfacher HLn.-Einband (Vorderdeckel marginal etwas berieben) um 1900 mit Kleisterpapierbezug. Erste Ausgabe. Seiten gebräunt, eher wenig fleckig, stellenweise unterschiedliche Feuchtigkeitsspuren (Ränder; eher blass und wenig störend, Notenanhang jedoch mehr), einige Lagen im Fussbereich gegen die Bundstege zu mit unterschiedlichen kleineren Wurmspuren (Text kaum störend tangiert). Alters-, Lagerungs- und Gebrauchsspuren, alte u. ältere Besitzervermerke a. Vorsatz u. vord. OFl.Bl, Besitzerstempel d. 20. Jhs. a. neuem fl.B. Gesamthaft sehr ordentliches, relativ gepflegtes Exemplar.. VD17 23:267317N - 1701 und 1702 erschienen bei Franz Leonz Schäll in Zug bzw. Gottfried Hautt Wwe. in Luzern zwei weitere Auflagen. - Der Autor ist nicht zu verwechseln mit dem Verfasser u.a. einer beachtlichen Biographie von Nikolaus von Flüe, Joseph Anton Weissenbach (1734-1801). - Besitzervermerk od. Widmung: 1. (auf OFl.Bl.) 'Herrn Stadtschreiber Uttiger in Zug empfiehlt sich zu freundlichem Andenken Dr. Rosset von Wiesbaden, Zug den 3. August 1854'; 2. (Stempel) 'Alb. Utinger-Speck 40 Bahnhofstr. Zug', i.e. Albert Uttinger od. Utinger (Zug 1855-1936 ibid.), kath., von Zug. 1881-83 Hotelier auf dem Zugerberg, 1884 Übernahme des renommierten Hotels Löwen in Zug von seinem Vater. In div. politischen und wirtschaftlichen Ämtern tätig (u.a. Wasserversorgung bzw. Wasserwerke Zug, Glühlampenfabrik in Zug). Utinger projektierte das erste, 1891 in Betrieb genommene Elektrizitätswerk im Lorzentobel und wirkte in den schweizerischen Verbänden der Elektrowirtschaft als Experte. (HLS). 3. (Vorsatzspiegel): krakelige, wenig geübte und dadurch kaum entzifferbare ca. 15-zeilige Handschrift um 1800, schliessend "zuo zug den [?] october (?) [1804?]". - Front. und Tafelfragment sind monogrammiert C.M., i.e. wohl Conrad Meyer (Zürich 1618- 1689 ibid.; vgl. u.a. SIKART). Das Frontispiz in Kupferradierung zeigt in zeittypisch verquickter Komposition Tells Apfelschuss, überhöht von einer Banderole mit Inschrift 'Numini et Lumini', darüber eine Gestalt in römischer Rüstung mit Füllhorn, im Vordergrund unten links ein nobler Herr mit gezogenem Hut (Gessler?), davor über liegender Drehleier Banderole mit Inschrift 'Glück zuo'. Die hälftige Tafel mit einer von Trägerfiguren gestützten Arkade stellt wohl eine Freilicht-Teaterszenerie dar. - Die Musiknoten (5 Linien) im Anhang mit Gesangstexten stehen unter dem Titel 'Chor, Lessi, et Cantiones Comoediae, 1672'. - Anschliessend an das detaillierte 8seitige Inhaltsverzeichnis ('Compendium') werden die Rolleninhaber (Akteure) namentlich aufgelistet (7 SS.): 'Begriff aller Herren Actoren sambt dero Stellen, nach dem Alphabet [der Vornamen]', von Beat Lazarus Kolin (u.a. als 'Vogt Grydler') bis zu Wolfgang Damian Müller ('Florae Garten Dienst') und Zacharias Wickhart [Wickart] als 'Soldat'. Tout-Zug scheint zum Einsatz gekommen zu sein: selbst 'Seckelmeister Melchior Brandenberg' hatte seine Auftritte u.a. als Werner Stauffacher. Die Aufführung war in jeder Hinsicht eine exklusive Männerangelegenheit. Die Damenwelt blieb im Prinzip sowohl von den Dramatis personae als auch von der Zuger Weiblichkeit her unberücksichtigt. In unumgänglichen Fällen übernahmen männliche Zuger die schwierige Aufgabe (z.B. Niclaus Wickhart u.a. als Annelin, Graecia und 'Zwingheris Eheweib', Carl Martin Kayser [ev. Keiser] u.a. als Justitia, und Carl Noe Düggelin u.a. als 'Meer-Fraewlein'). - "Zug hat eine alte Theatertradition: Schüleraufführungen im Zeughaus oder in der Zimmerhütte, wandernde Schauspieler, die sich auf primitiven kleinen Bühnen produzieren, Volkstheater unter freiem Himmel. Am 14. und 15. September 1672 wird auf dem Kolinplatz mit größtem Aufwand und Pomp vor über 3000 Zuschauern das 'Eydgnössische Contrafeth' des Zugers Johann Kaspar Weissenbach gesungen und gespielt; die halbe Stadt wirkt mit." (http://www.theatercasino.ch/de/ueber-uns/theater-und-musikgesellschaft-zug/geschichte/1782-1842.html ). -- "[Seine] Gipfelleistung erlebte [auf Schweizer Boden] das Barocktheater im Werk des Zugers Johann Kaspar Weissenbach [..]. [..] Stoff des Stückes ist am ersten Spieltag der Aufstieg der Eidgenossenschaft von der Gründung bis zu den Burgunderkriegen, am zweiten der Abstieg seit der Glaubensspaltung bis zu Weissenbachs Gegenwart; sein Thema dagegen ist der Urgedanke der Schweizer Geschichte, Freiheit und Einheit, und dessen Wandel im Lauf der Zeiten; diesen Sinn schaubar zu machen, reihte der Dichter historische Szenen aneinander und erfüllte sie mit dem Geist der Volksherrschaft." (Salzer/Tunk I, 3. Aufl. 1972, p. 416). - "Lassen die ersten beiden Akte die ideale Schau des eidgenössischen Gemeinwesens in der Entstehungsgeschichte bis zum dreizehnörtigen Bund lebendig werden, so erlebt Helvetia im dritten Akt den leisen Einzug des Ungemachs. [..] Der vierte und fünfte Akt zeigen dann die Wirkung der drei falschen Tellen; Atheismus (Reformation), Interesse (Pensionenwesen) und Politicus (adeliges Stadtregiment) vertreiben Justitia mit ihren Töchtern Wahrheit, Einigkeit und Glückseligkeit. Helvetia erkrankt, schläft vor Schwäche, während in der Analyse des Untergangs antiker Gemeinwesen das Schicksal der Eidgenossenschaft prophezeit wird [..]. [..] Den Schluss des Stückes bildet das Erwachen der Rekonvaleszentin Helvetia [..]; der Bogen wird zurück in die Gegenwart der Eidgenossenschaft geschlagen durch den Auftritt des Bruder Klaus, der zwischen Helvetia und Gott vermittelt. Im abschliessenden Festgetümmel erfährt man noch den Grund zur Hoffnung auf die Gesundung Helvetias: 1669 ist Nikolaus von der Flüe selig gesprochen worden. Das 'Eydgenösische [sic] Contrafeth' stellt nun kein Tellenspiel dar [..]; gleichwohl besitzt es für die theatralische Vermittlung des Tell-Mythos grosse Bedeutung." (etc.; I. Schmidt, Wilhelm Tell in der politischen Kultur der alten Eidgenossenschaft in der frühen Neuzeit. Schriftliche MA-Hausarbeit Universität Kiel 1998, p. 95 f.). -- Johann Caspar Weissenbach (Zug 1633-1678 ibid.), kath., von Zug. Ausbildung in der Kanzlei des Klosters Einsiedeln und im Jesuitenkolleg Solothurn. Weissenbach trat in den Dienst des Klosters Einsiedeln und wirkte 13 Jahre als Obervogt des Klosters in der thurgauischen Vogtei Gachnang. Nach dem Tod des Vaters liess er sich 1668 in Zug nieder und widmete sich v.a. der Dichtung und dem Theater. [..]. Am bedeutendsten ist sein vom Jesuitentheater beeinflusstes, teils in Mundart abgefasstes 'Eydgnosssisches Contrafeth', das mit seinen über 200 Rollen an zwei Spieltagen 1672 in Zug aufgeführt wurde (Drucke 1673, 1701, 1702)." (H. Thomke, in: HLS). - Ausführlich und einlässlich dazu s. O. Eberle, Johann Kaspar Weissenbach und das schweizerische Barocktheater. In: Schweizerische Monatshefte für Politik und Kultur 9, 1929/1930, H. 3, pp. 130-142. "Es ist übrigens schon viel über Weissenbach geschrieben worden, aber die landläufige Literaturgeschichtsschreibung steht einfach ratlos vor seinem Werke. Es fehlt ihr das Organ zum Verständnis des Barocktheaters überhaupt [..]. Jakob Bächtolds Meinung in seiner schweizerischen Literaturgeschichte ist vielfach noch heute die Meinung der Leute von der Zunft. Bächtold nennt das Contrafeth 'ein gänzlich verschnörkeltes Machwerk der Verfallszeit' [..]. Der Protestant Bächtold blickte aus dem realistischen 16. oder 19. Jahrhundert ins stilvolle 17. Jahrhundert hinein. Es ist begreiflich, dass es von seinem Standpunkt aus das vollkommene Widerspiel des Realismus, die rein sinnbildliche Kunst des Barock, nicht begreifen und darum auch nicht anerkennen konnte." (etc.; op. cit. p. 137 f.).

Nitida e corretta edizione di questo classico apparso in originale nel 1570 per opera di Leonardo Fioravanti, medico bolognese. Quest'ultimo espone le sue simpatie paracelsiane e presenta una lunga serie di rimedi medici, segreti chimici e ricette alchemiche spesso in opposizione alla più classica tradizione ippocratico-galenica. L'insieme di questa interessante raccolta di precetti proviene dalla lunga esperienza di studio e pure quella maturata grazie ai viaggi "per mare, et per terra, vedendo i secreti della natural filosofia, et le differenze che sono tra una regione, et l'altra, medicando così nell'una come nell'altra professione.".

        The Elements of that Mathematical Art commonly called Algebra, expounded in Four Books

      Engraved frontis. port. of the author by Faithorne & woodcut diagrams in the text. Titles printed in red & black. 6 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 323 pp.; 2 p.l., 416 pp. Two vols. in one. Thickish small folio, cont. panelled polished calf (upper joint a little cracked but very strong, ends of spine with some minor wear), spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: W. Godbid for T. Passinger [Vols. I & II] & B. Hurlock [Vol. I only], 1673-74. First edition, the John Evelyn copy, of Kersey's great contribution to algebra; it was the most elaborate algebra that had appeared in England up to that date. Isaac Newton was a subscriber. "Both Wallis and Collins wrote in 1672 in the highest terms of their anticipation of this work and on its publication it became a standard authority. It was honourably mentioned in the 'Philosophical Transactions' and was commended by Hutton. Kersey's method of algebra was employed in Cocker's Arithmetic."-D.N.B. A fine and crisp copy from the library of John Evelyn, with the modern bookplate. Early signature of "E. Burt" on title and the bookplates of Sir Fred. Evelyn Bart. and Kenneth Garth Huston. Preserved in a box. ❧ Smith, History of Mathematics, I, p. 414-"Of the textbook makers of this period in the domain of elementary algebra the best known was John Kersey, a self-made teacher. He was highly esteemed in London as an instructor in mathematics and was a friend of Wingate's. His algebra [the present work] presents the subject in a logical and teachable manner. One of the most interesting features is the preliminary explanation of the analogies between proportion, which then held a high place, and the modern treatment of equations." .

        DISCORSO SOPRA IL GIUOCO DEL CALCIO FIORENTINO. Del Sig. Giovanni de Bardi de' Conti di Vernio, nell'Accademia degli Alterati il Puro: da lui già scritto al Serenissimo Gran Duca Francesco; ed ora nuovamente ristampato coll'aggiunta de' Capitoli del medesimo Giuoco, e dedicato al Serenissimo Granduca Cosimo terzo.

      All'Insegna della Stella 1673 3^edizione. Cm.20,1x14,8. Pg.(4), 36. Legatura in mz.pergamena con piatti decorati. Frontespizio impresso in rosso e nero, con stemma mediceo in formato cm.8x9. Con due carte, la prima in formato cm.20,1x29,4 raffigurante la posizione dei giocatori sul campo, la seconda, in formato cm.20,1x23,3 raffigurante una partita di calcio in costume allestita in Piazza Santa Croce. Fogli di guardia moderni. Buon esemplare. Il conte di Vernio Giovanni Bardi, o dei Bardi (Firenze, 1534 ? 1612) intraprese in gioventù la carriera militare, combattendo a Malta e in Ungheria contro i Turchi. E' ricordato soprattutto per essere stato fra i promotori della Camerata de' Bardi, o Camerata fiorentina, istituzione volta a rinnovellare i fasti della antica musica greca, assieme a Vincenzo Galilei, padre di Galileo (che gli dedicò il "Dialogo della musica antica et moderna"), Giulio Caccini, e Girolamo Mei, da cui si sviluppò la monodia e quindi della musica barocca e dell'opera. Il presente testo è importante perché ad esso è da attribuire la codifica delle regole del gioco del calcio fiorentino nel 1580. Elaborò infatti un regolamento in 33 "Capitoli", da cui nacquero poi i prodromi dell'attuale gioco del calcio. Giulio Dati lo definì "il Licurgo di sì fatta pugna".

        The Blessedness of the Righteous Opened, and Further Recommended from the Consideration of the Vanity of this Mortal Life in Two Treatises

      London: Printed by A. Maxwell, for Sa. Gellibrand. 1673. First. Second edition (first published in 1668). Small octavo. 514, [12], 96pp. Probably late 18th or early 19th Century American full calf gilt. Joints a little tender but sound and tight, small strip cut from the top of the title page, presumably to remove a name, a very good copy. Ownership Signature (twice) of Rev. Frederick T. Tiffany of Cooperstown, New York, with a couple of ink notes in the text, probably in his hand. Tiffany was the Episcopalian Rector of Cooperstown, and according to some sources, the model for Rev. Mr. Grant in fellow townsman James Fenimore Cooper's novel The Pioneers, probably the reason why there exists a record of Tiffany suing Cooper for libel, although we have yet to determine how that worked out. Tiffany later became Chaplain to the U.S. House of Representatives. The author, John Howe was a Puritan cleric and chaplain to Oliver Cromwell. OCLC locates no copies of the first edition, and two physical copies of this edition (and innumerable microfilmed copies in the U.S.); Copac adds several more in the U.K. .

        The Works of the Reverend and Learned Divine, Thomas Jackson, D. D., Sometime President of Corpus Christi College in Oxon : Such As Were, and Such As Never Before Were Printed: In Three Volumes: With the Authors Life,

      London : Printed by Andrew Clark 1673 - 2 volumes of 3. Bound in contemporary full leather. Cambridge style tooling to front boards. Gilt lettering on orange spine label. 5 raised bands. Good binding and cover. Wear to extremities. Chipping and loss to head and tail of spine. Boards starting. Front board of Volume I detached. Library markings. Clean, unmarked pages with tanning. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. Thomas Jackson (1579?1640) was an English theologian, and President of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. Originally a Calvinist, he became in later life an Arminian. His chief work was a series of commentaries on the Apostles' Creed, the first complete edition being entitled The Works of Thomas Jackson, D.D, edited by Barnabas Oley. The commentaries were originally published in 1613 to 1657, as twelve books with different titles, the first being The Eternal Truth of 1613. Jackson?s personal views were strongly against the Catholic doctrine on transubstantiation. He was an early anti-Calvinist among Oxford theologians. He made his views known only in the late 1620s, but stated that around 1605 he had already decided against predestination. In theology he was a syncretic Platonist. He took an interest in the Epicurean view of free will, but argued for a middle way accommodating the Stoic criticism of the Epicureans. His humanistic Platonism has been compared to that of Robert Burton; and William Prynne, arguing against William Laud's promotion of Jackson, claimed his learning only made him more dangerous.

Duguay-Trouin had begun as a privateer but in the navy he fought both privateers and the Dutch and English navies. The print series was drawn by Nicolas Ozanne, engraved by his sister Jeanne François Ozanne and published by her husband Yves Marie Le Gouaz. The maps were engraved by Drouet.

(16),+ 80; (26),+ 948,+ (77) s.+ utvikbar tabell i träsnitt. Enstaka fläckar och lätta fuktränder i marginalen. Samtida skinnband med blindpräglad rygg och upphöjda bind. Kurt Winbergs exlibris samt J. E. Almquists namnteckning 1935. Fint exemplar. Collijn sp. 531. Engström s. 121. Almquist s. 115f. Warmholtz 6703. Björne s. 27. De båda arbetena hör ihop med ett gemensamt smutstitelblad "Synopsis juris publici et privati ad statum & leges regni Sveciæ accomodata". Det senare arbetet, som först publicerades i Stockholm 1648, med en andra upplaga 1653, är det första försöket till en vetenskaplig lärobok i svensk privaträtt för juris studerande vid Uppsala universitet. I denna tredje, slutliga, och -enligt Almquist- betydligt förbättrade upplaga, har han tagit hjälp av kollegan Sidenius och hovrättsassesorn Olof Bärling. Det första arbetet är första upplagan av en kortfattad översikt av Sveriges gällande statsrätt (den offentliga rätten), den första i sitt slag, och innehåller mycket material som tidigare ej publicerats. Detta verk hade Loccenius arbetat med sedan omkring 1640 och färdigställt i åtminstone tre tidigare versioner innan han 1673 beslöt sig för att trycka det. Här har han slutligen även inarbetat i texten (vilket antyds i titeln) i det år 1639 publicerade arbetet "Exercitationes juris". Offentligrätten var ett känsligt ämne. Axel Oxenstierna lär ha avrått från publicering av tidigare versioner, eftersom Sveriges författning enligt honom var så svårförstålig. Sam Clason har ägnat detta en speciell studie, "Studier i 1600-talets statsrätt. Johannes Loccenius och hans lära om rikets fundamentallagar", i Statsvetenskaplig tidskrift 1901

Petrus Franciscus Tonduti (Avignon, 1583-1669), signore di Saint-Légier, fu un erudito del XVII secolo che si interessò di questioni di diritto e di astronomia. Autore di testi assai reputati, a lui si deve la revisione delle "Rudolphine Tables" di Keplero. Nel 1634 determinò la latitudine geografica di Avignon e nel 1666 divenne Cavaliere dell'Ordine di Saint-Michel. Assai stimate le sue corrispondenze con Peiresc e Gassendi. La prima edizione del "Tractatus de praeventione iudiciciali" è del 1651. > Sapori, II, 2996, cita l'edizione 1659. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Works of Edmund Gunter: Containing the Description and Use of the Sector, Cross-staff, Bow, Quadrant, And other Instruments. With a Canon of Artificial Sines and Tangents to a Radius of 10.00000 parts, and the Logarithms from an Unite to 10000: The Uses whereof are illustrated in the Practice of Arithmetik, Geometry, Astronomy, Navigation, Dialling and Fortifications

      At the Marigold in St Paul&#39;s Churchyard: A C for Francis Eglesfield, 1673 An important and rare work. Classed as &#39;poor&#39; because it lacks one folding plate, a volvelle and p89-208 of the Third Book of The Cross-Staff (the book on the use of lines). The stitching up to p 91 is failing and some pages are loose up to that point. Edmund Gunter (b Hertfordshire 1581) went to Westminster School and Christ Church Oxford. He took holy orders in 1614. His particular interest however was in mathematics and he was successful in securing the first ever post of Professor of Geometry at Oxford University. However his claim to be able to locate the position of the stars enraged the patron of this new post, Sir Henry Savile, and he was dismissed. His fortunes quickly changed when he won the patronage of the Earl of Bridgewater, who helped secure him the post of Professor of Astronomy in Gresham College, London in 1619. His career now established he proceeded to a series of outstanding works on geometry , including his treatises on the Sector, Cross-staff, Bow, Quadrant and other instruments. His collected works appeared in 1624, and this book is the 5th edition published 1674 (although in practice it is believed to be the 3rd). He is credited with the invention of a number of measuring devices, including Gunter&#39;s Chain, Quadrant and Scale, and also with inventing the words cosine and cotangent to represent the inverse of sin and tangent. Of particular worth was his development of the method of triangulation, in order to locate an object using fixed positions; which was of especial value to sailors. The value of his mathematical analyses to navigation is exemplified by two section of this book entitled “A description of the Tropicks” and ”The Use of the Lines of Sines and Tangents in Navigation”. This edition is particularly sought after because of its reworking by William Leybourn, and includes a work by Samuel Foster which developed part of Gunter&#39;s work on the Sector. In full leather binding with slightly newer spine and probably original boards. The binding itself is in good condition so it is likely that when the newer spine was added, it had already lost the final parts of the work. With decorative title page; title page; dedication to the Earl of Bridgewater 2pp; Letter from William Leybourn to the Reader 5pp; Note of subjects taught by Leybourn 1pp; Advert 1pp; title to first book (with small ink signature and a further crossed out ink signature); text with numerous diagrams and a small crumpled folding plate pp1-156; title page to The Sector Altered by Samuel Foster (work first written in 1624 as an appendix to Gunter&#39;s Quadrant and then published in 1652); text pp 159-194; postscript 1pp; Title page The Cross Staff in 3 Books; book I pp 199-232; Book 2 pp 233-312; Book 3 pp 1-88 - pages 89-208 missing. Apart from the faults listed above, there is occasional staining and a little worming to the top margins at the beginning of the work.

Die Textlegende unter Verlust der Signatur beschnitten, lediglich zur Hälfte vorhanden (es fehlt die rechte Hälfte mit der französischen Legende), mittig montiert. Rechts im Vordergrund ca. 5,5 x 0,5 cm großer Bildverlust. Rosar, Gedruckte Trierer Gesamtansichten von den Anfängen bis ca. 1800, Nr. 3.8.1. Thieme-Becker, Bd. 19, S. 102. Vgl. Van der Vekene, Plans de la Forteresse de Luxembourg Nr. 20.12. Sehr ungewöhnliches Blatt, offenbar durch einen Fehler des Kupferstechers aus zwei Ansichten kompiliert. Oberhalb der Vedute mit einem breiten Spruchband und dem Titel "Treues". Im Vordergrund die Mosel, rechts die Römerbrücke, links die Mühle der Abtei St. Martin. Soweit topographisch annähernd korrekt, wie durch den Typus Münster / Braun-Hogenberg überliefert. Innerhalb der Stadtmauern hat der Kupferstecher offenbar eine völlig andere Stadt dargestellt (mutmaßlich Freiburg im Breisgau). Gérard Jollain (gest. 1683) gehörte einer Kupferstecher- und Stichverlegerfamilie aus Paris an, wo er spätestens seit 1660 anzutreffen war. Von ihm sind Stadtpläne wie Stadtansichten bekannt. Sehr selten. Bis zur Einfassungslinie beschnitten und auf Japan montiert. Die Textlegende unter Verlust der Signatur beschnitten, lediglich zur Hälfte vorhanden (es fehlt die rechte Hälfte mit der französischen Legende), mittig montiert. Rechts im Vordergrund ca. 5,5 x 0,5 cm großer Bildverlust. Ca. 23 x 39 cm (Darstellung), dazu Text unten ca. 3,8 cm hoch.

        Il Giardin del Piemonte hoggi vivente nell'anno 1673 aperto all'Altezza Reale del Duca di Savoia, e Re di Cipro Carlo Emanuele II il Grande, il Forte, l'Intrepido.

      per Bartolomeo Zapatta,, in Torino, 1673 - In-16° (155x104mm), pp. (8), 202, (6) di indici dei personaggi. Legatura coeva p. pelle marrone (abilmente restaurata) con filetti in oro sul dorso e, ai piatti, riquadro di filetti perimetrale impresso in oro. Piccoli fregi ornamentali impressi in oro al centro dei piatti. Complessive 19 tavv. incise su rame f.t.: all'antiporta, ritratto in ovale di Carlo Emanuele II; al frontespizio, stemma sabaudo coronato; un ritratto in ovale di Maria Giovanna di Savoia Nemours, uno del Marchese di Greisy e 14 blasoni nobiliari (di Ludovica Maria di Savoia, di Emanuele Filiberto Amedeo, di Emanuele Filiberto Amedeo di Savoia, di Antonio di Savoia, di Fabrizio Spada, di Michele Beiamo, di Gaspare Lascaris, di Enrico Provana, di Giovan Battista Trucchi, di Augusto Filiberto Scaglia di Verrua, di Francesco Sanmartino d'Agliè, di Ignazio Carrotio, del Marchese di Caraglio, di Agostino Olgiati, di Carlo Francesco Renato Della Chiesa, di Antoine Des Pienes, del Conte Cigliari), il tutto inciso finemente da Georges Tasnière, da A. Depiene, da J. Chaussoy. Estrema irregolarità nella segnatura della paginazione. Ex-libris manoscritti settecenteschi alla prima c. bianca. Bruniture, fioriture ed aloni sparsi di non grave entità; discreto esemplare nel complesso. Prima edizione, di estrema rarità. La collazione del numero esatto delle tavole incise del volume risulta alquanto dubbia e problematica. L'esemplare catalogato dalla Libreria Vinciana, nel suo storico catalogo delle seicentine italiane del 1950, conteneva soltanto 7 tavole; il Manno accenna fuggevolmente a 18 tavole, senza meglio specificare i loro temi iconografici; il numero di 19 tavole si evince dalla scheda dell'indice S.B.N. e dal catalogo unificato delle biblioteche del Piemonte, che si basa sull'esemplare conservato a Casale Monferrato. Peraltro, è molto probabile che non tutti gli esemplari contenessero all'origine l'opuscolo, interfogliato nel ns. esemplare fra le segnature G ed H, "L'Horoscopo del Piemonte": il libro uscì evidentemente in veste tipografico-iconografica eterogenea e compòsita, sicché non esiste un esemplare dell'opera perfettamente uguale all'altro. Il libro consiste in una raccolta di sonetti, odi, canzoni encomiastiche indirizzate ai più illustri rappresentanti del patriziato pedemontano del declinare del Seicento, principi, dame nobili, prelati, abati, cavalieri, ministri, considerati dall'autore "il Giardin del Piemonte", il fior fiore di quanti facevano capo alla corte di Carlo Emanuele II. L'Arnaldo, di Villefranche, presso Nizza, nato nel 1638, morto in data imprecisata, fu teologo, letterato e poeta. Addottoratosi in teologia a Milano, al Collegio di Brera, fu in seguito nominato Protonotaro Apostolico. Manno, I, 1120. Cat. Vinciana, 2313. Picchetto, Le edizioni piemontesi del Seicento della Biblioteca Civica di Torino, nn. 207-208. Manca al Lozzi e a Canavesio, Seicentina. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
