      Geneva, Johann Herman Widerhold, 1674. - Folio. 4 vols. bound as 1. [20], 218, [12], [2 blank]; [4], 236, [12]; [4], 244, [13], [1 blank]; [6], 231, [17] pp. First title-page printed in red and black, each title-page with Widerholds's woodcut device (motto: "Gradatim ad sidera tollor").

Further with woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, factotums and several small woodcuts in the text. Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine-title, blue sprinkled edges. First edition in German of Pietro della Valle's deservedly famous narrative of his travels in the Middle East, with an excellent account of Muscat and the Arabian Gulf and references to Dibba. Della Valle, an Italian nobleman, sailed from Venice in 1614 to Istanbul, where he arrived in August 1614, spending a year to explore the city. He continued to Rhodes, Alexandria, Rosetta, Cairo, crossing the Sinai desert to Jerusalem, Damascus and Aleppo. From there Della Valle proceeded to Isfahan (Iran) to meet the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas I. He sojourned in Persia until early 1623, witnessing and commenting on the escalating conflict between Shah Abbas and the Portuguese empire. In 1621 he decided to return to Europe and set off for the Persian Gulf, but the Persian and English blockade prevented his sailing. By way of India he finally sailed for Muscat in January 1623, from he crossed the Arabian Gulf to Basra, continuing overland to Aleppo, arriving in Europe in 1626. During his travels he wrote regularly to his learned friend in Naples, Mario Schipano. These 54 letters formed the basis of an account of his travels that was first published in Rome as Viaggi di Pietro della Valle from 1650 to 1658. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities [.] Della Valle's eighteen letters from Persia provide one of the most detailed sources of information for most aspects of Persian life in the second half of Shah Abbas' reign" (Gurney). - Engraved armorial bookplate on paste-down. Evenly browned throughout, some spotting, few quires in volume 3 with wormholes in gutter margin, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. VD 17, 39:135561Q. Tobler, p. 95. Cf. Atabey 1269-1271 (other eds.); Blackmer 1712 (French ed.); Gurney, "Della Valle, Pietro", in: Encyclopaedia Iranica (online ed.). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Klare Onderrichtinge der voortreffelijcke Worstel-konst,

      Amsterdam: Johannes Jansonius van Waesberge,, 1674. Verhandelende hoeman in alle voorvallen van Twist in Handtgemeenschap, sich kan hoeden: en alle Aengrepen, Borst-stooten, Vuyst-slagen &c. verstetten. Quarto (235 × 189 mm). Contemporary full vellum, remnant of ink lettering to the spine. 71 etched plates by Romeyn de Hooghe, plate 6 was originally duplicated and the duplication corrected at the time by the imposition of the correct plate numbered 7, over it, so neatly is this done that it is barely visible from the recto. A little rubbed, the front free endpaper somewhat creased and with some loss at the lower corner, light browning, a few faint damp-stains in margins, occasional finger-soiling, some minor chipping at the edges, but overall very good. First edition of this renowned manual of self-defence. The work is particularly notable for the telling combination of de Hooghe's clear, but nonetheless dramatic, illustrations, and the simplicity and lucidity of Petter's written instructions. Prof. Sydney Anglo describes it as "historically speaking, the most important treatise on unarmed combat ever printed ... the finest of all wrestling books and deservedly the most famous" (The Martial Arts of Renaissance Europe, p.190). While Eli Steenput, in the introduction to his English translation (Journal of Western Martial Art, October 2000), remarks that "It is probably unique in presenting an effective and complete unarmed combat system in a format from which it would be actually possible to learn". In themselves de Hooghe's plates are remarkable, fully justifying Otto Benesch's description of him as "not only the greatest Dutch etcher of the period, but the only great artist Holland produced at the end of her classical era … one of the greatest illustrators of all time, comprehending within himself all the various faculties of the universal mind of the Baroque". Wrestling-master Petter's school of practical self-defence for the bourgeoisie on the dangerous streets of Amsterdam, clearly differentiates the book from the earlier tradition of wrestling books, such as the Ringbüchlein, or Fabian von Auerswald's Ringer-Kunst, where smiling contestants are shown engaged in a sporting contest. Iinstead the plates portray well-dressed gentlemen tangling with grimacing, sometimes armed, street toughs. Petter died shortly before publication, and the book was seen through the press by his widow, and his pupil Robert Cors, who explains the principles that lay behind his master's method; "The forces which were lent to the human understanding by nature, are not present alike in each art, and if they were, then they would nevertheless not be developed in the same way. Of two arts one is usually superior, this is in general the one based on knowledge. Most people do not seriously consider how they could secure themselves against all manner ofd abuse or assault, as might be levelled against them by evil-hearted villains, eager for violence. Our wrestler has studied this problem, first developing his mind, then looking for effective strikes and holds, by which one can defend against violent attacks with shoves, punches, or a knife. These he has practised diligently, and, to benefit the community, he has decided finally to compile this instructional book … Cruel Death has untimely taken him from us, before he could bring this project to conclusion. The images had already been prepared during his life, ordered and provided with explanatory captions to instruct the studious wrestler". By way of advertisement, Cors mentions that he is "prepared to instruct interested parties in these techniques for reasonable remuneration and be reached at the Witwe house of Nicolaes Petter on the Prinsengracht in the Gustavusburgh not far from the combat academy". Far from common institutionally, just 20 or so copies world-wide, with most of them in the Netherlands, and very rarely encountered commercially, particularly so in such wonderful, unrestored contemporary condition. This copy with an early anonymous bookplate and the later plate of Amsterdam doctor and bibliophile, Bob Luza, whose collection was sold in 1981.

        Volatiles from the history of Adam and Eve: containing, many unquestioned truths, and allowable notions of several natures

      London, printed for T. Bassett at the George in Fleet-street, 1674. 8vo., (8) + 72 + 75 - 87 + (1) + 88 - 89 + 89 - 188 + (4)pp., including final blank, text continuous despite pagination (see ESTC), blank strip cut away from foot of title-page but not near printed surface or ruled border, rather later calf-backed boards, sympathetically rebacked, spine fully gilt in compartments, with the early 20th century bookplate of Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield*>. Only edition. Wing P.1912. This is an off-piste little book by the natural philosopher and politician Sir John Pettus (ca. 1613-1685), best known now probably for his works on minerals and mining. In his dedicatory piece to his neighbour, Leister Devereux, Viscount Hereford, Pettus observes, self-deprecatingly, that 'possibly, these excursions might have been more excusable to me in my youth, than in my age; but it is a solace to me, that I can be yet youthful in my notions .....'. * Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield was an extraordinary bibliophile. His principal library of some 13,255 volumes (including incunabula and manuscripts and a large part of the personal library of the poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning), is now held by Brighton & Hove City Library.

        MACHIAVEL'S DISCOURSES UPON THE FIRST DECADE OF T LIVIUS PRINCE

      1674. Good. (MACHIAVELLI, Niccolo. Dacres, Edward, trans.) MACHIAVEL'S DISCOURSES UPON THE FIRST DECADE OF T. LIVIUS, Translated out of the Italian. To which is added his PRINCE: With some animadversions noting and taxing his errors. By E.D. The Second Edition much corrected and amended. London: Printed for Charles Harper at the Flower-de-luce over against St. Dunstans Church, and John Amery at the Peacock over against Fetter-lane, both in Fleet-street, M. DC. LXXIV [1674]. The two works in this volume, translated by Dacres, were first published separately in 1636 and 1640 respectively. The first combined edition was printed in 1663; and this is the second edition thus, of the combined edition, corrected and amended. Two slightly different title pages are noted for this edition: in addition to the publisher information, the first supplies bookseller information (to be sold by Thomas Burrell and William Hensman) and the publication date is given in arabic numerals; while the second, offered here, omits the bookseller information and has the publication date in roman numerals. Frontispiece portrait of Machiavelli, engraved by R. White. [xxiv],686,[2] pp., including the portrait. Octavo, 17 x 11 cm, contemporary leather boards, worn and rebacked, with endpapers renewed. All edges marbled. The Prince has a separate title page dated 1673. Many errors in numeration. Complete, clean, and very good overall. Although Machiavelli's writings in the original Italian, as well as his reputation, preceded Dacres' translation of the Discourses and the Prince to England, Dacre's translations gave wider exposure to Machiavelli's practical politics advocating councils based on political pragmatism and historical experience, and extended his influence on English political thought. Machiavelli's Discourses were of special interest at the time of publication in England because they provided a justification of republicanism. (Wing M135A).

        The works...consisting of those which were formerly printed: and those which he design'd for the press, now published out of the authors original copies. The fourth edition

      London: Henry Herringman (pr. by J.M.) Folio (30 cm, 11.8"). Frontis., [42], 41, [1 (blank)], 80, [4], 70 (59/60 skipped in pagination, text uninterrupted), 154, 23, [1 (blank)], 148 pp.. 1674 Cowley's collected poems in their fourth edition, beginning with a good impression of => the frontispiece portrait engraved by Faithorne, "an account of the life and writings" of the poet signed by T. Spratt, and two odes on Cowley's death by Thomas Higgons and Sir John Denham. Once considered the epitome of his era's wit, the author of "The Mistress" (verses in honor of love and various women, included in this volume) suffered a notable decline in popularity in subsequent years, prompting Pope's musing "Who now reads Cowley? . . . but still I love the language of his heart." And indeed despite the vagaries of reputation he has always had his worthy appreciators. Cowley's Pindaric odes are present here, as are the "Davideis" and "Davideidos"; also set forth are the "delightful little prose Essays (with verse interwoven)" for which The Concise Cambridge History of English Literature believes Cowley will most ultimately be remembered. Some sections have separate title-pages, bearing the same publisher and date information as the main Provenance: Front pastedown with small armorial bookplate and with bookseller's ticket from Cambridge, England. 17th-century mottled calf, rebacked at some point in the 19th century and again more recently with hinges carefully reinforced (inside); spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather title label, covers showing the predictable acid-etching. Varying degrees of browning to pages; scattered incidents of worming in lower inner and outer margins, almost never affecting text. A handsome book in a binding both sturdy and attractive.

Jöcher (1819), 6.Bd. - - "Franciscus Sylvius de le Boe aus Hanau (1614-1672), ein berühmter Professor der Anatomie in Leyden, dessen Namen der Aquaeductus Sylvii und die Fossa Sylvi tragen, ist der Begründer der iatrochochemischen Schule, die fast alle Krankheiten darauf zurückführt, daß dem Blute Acrimonia (Schärfen) - alkalische oder besonders hyperazide Säfte - beigemischt sind. In seinem Tracttus "De morbis infantum" (1674) erklärt er auch die Kinderkrankheiten in dieser Weise. - - Er beschreibt in seinem Werke (Peiper, p.130): - 1. Icterus, - 2.

Er beruft sich dabei auf Francisus Sylvius de le Boe, der bereits die gleiche Anschauung vertreten hat." Peiper, p.131 - - "1650 entdeckt .

(1689)! - Gastro-Acidity as the Cause of Infantile Disease : "Sylvius' 'De Morbis Infantum' which is in the 4th book of his, 'Praxeos Medicae Appendix,' "illustrates his ideas about gastro-intestinal acidity as the cause of infantile disease. His view was adopted by Walter Harris a few years later, but he complained that Sylvius had not followed out the logical sequence of this theory." Herny Schumann, Trent Collection - Franciscus de le Boé Sylvius (1614-1672), professor of the practice of medicine of Leyden, was one of the foremost physicians of his time. In 1637, Sylvius, as he was called, is credited by Haller giving the first description of the lateral cerebral fissure which bears his name. Although the aqueduct from the third to the fourth ventricle had been previously noted, Sir Michael Foster says we owe to Sylvius the name of the aqueduct. Both anatomical structures are described in Sylvius's Diputationes Medicarium. To clinical neurology Sylvius contributed the observation that some tremors were always present and some appeared only during movement." Mc Henry , Histotry of Neurology, p.64. - "Sylvius was the first to describe the tubercles in phthisis. In the history of medicine, however, Sylvius was the most brillant representative of the iatrochemical school, founded by Paracelsus and continued by J.B. van Helmont, which reached its zenith when Sylvius defended the chemiatric conception from the Leiden chair. He was convinced that all physiological and pathological processes could be conceived perfectly in analogy in the chemical laboratory and could be explained by fermentation, effervescence, and putrefaction. Acid and alkali were considered as fundamental principles in the animal body." G.A. Lindeboom, DSB XIII, pp.222-223 - - . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Incisione originale su matrice di rame, eseguita all'acquaforte da anonimo artefice dei Paesi Bassi su disegno tracciato nel 1674 da Giovanni Tommaso Borgonio (Perinaldo 1618 circa - ante 1692). Entro la parte figurata, all'angolo superiore destro, titolo inscritto in cartiglio, sormontato da arma sabauda sostenuta da putti; all'angolo inferiore, sempre a destra, tabella con 64 richiami in lingua latina, recante in alto lo stemma civico di Torino. La tavola è tratta dalla prima edizione di una monumentale descrizione dei dominii dei duchi sabaudi, siti al di qua e al di là delle Alpi: nell'opera editoriale si affiancano relazioni scritte a splendide vedute topografiche, disegnate da artefici attivi presso la corte torinese e tradotte su rame da incisori nordeuropei. Pianta topografica di Torino, capitale della dinastia sabauda. La città appare racchiusa da una robusta cinta bastionata, ed è difesa dalla Cittadella voluta da Emanuele Filiberto nel secondo Cinquecento; nella struttura regolare del tessuto urbano, risaltano le piazze su cui si affacciano gli edifici simbolici del potere ducale. Borgonio, autore del disegno per varie tavole del Theatrum, fu anche noto miniatore e blasonatore della corte sabauda. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

        His Majesties commission for the rebuilding of the cathedral church of S. Paul in London

      St. Paul's cathedral in London had been almost completely destroyed in the 1666 Great Fire. What was left standing had to be demolished. The 1674 Royal Commission, issued on 12th November 1674, not only authorised the final demolition but charges the Lord Mayor, Sir Robert Hanson, and a large group of named commissioners "to demolish and take down what is yet remaining of the old fabrick, and to begin, and carry on the new work ...... and to call to your aid and assistance, such skilful artists, officers, and workmen, as ye shall think fit ....."."And although we are very sensible, that the erecting such a new fabrick or structure according to the design above mentioned, will be a work not onely of great time but also of very extraordinary cost, and expence, (far above that of the repairs either former or later:) yet are we in no sort discouraged from undertaking the same .....".And the King promises to contribute £1000 p.a. towards the rebuilding costs, but hopes also that local residents in the City "will be ready to follow Our example by chearful and bountiful supplies to the carrying on and finishing the said work ......". Donations would be received by the Dean. Indeed, the Commission set out not only the scheme for national and local fund-raising, but also set the parameters for financial and project management and accountability. Among those commissioned was "Christopher Wren Doctor of Laws, Surveyor General of Our Works".In 1675, the year following, work on the new cathedral, based on Wren's so-called 'Warrant Design', would begin.

First edition in German of Pietro della Valle's deservedly famous narrative of his travels in the Middle East, with an excellent account of Muscat and the Arabian Gulf and references to Dibba. Della Valle, an Italian nobleman, sailed from Venice in 1614 to Istanbul, where he arrived in August 1614, spending a year to explore the city. He continued to Rhodes, Alexandria, Rosetta, Cairo, crossing the Sinai desert to Jerusalem, Damascus and Aleppo. From there Della Valle proceeded to Isfahan (Iran) to meet the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas I. He sojourned in Persia until early 1623, witnessing and commenting on the escalating conflict between Shah Abbas and the Portuguese empire. In 1621 he decided to return to Europe and set off for the Persian Gulf, but the Persian and English blockade prevented his sailing. By way of India he finally sailed for Muscat in January 1623, from he crossed the Arabian Gulf to Basra, continuing overland to Aleppo, arriving in Europe in 1626. During his travels he wrote regularly to his learned friend in Naples, Mario Schipano. These 54 letters formed the basis of an account of his travels that was first published in Rome as Viaggi di Pietro della Valle from 1650 to 1658. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities [...] Della Valle's eighteen letters from Persia provide one of the most detailed sources of information for most aspects of Persian life in the second half of Shah Abbas' reign" (Gurney). - Engraved armorial bookplate on paste-down.

Margarita, die aus einer Verwandtenehe von Onkel und Nichte stammte, war ihrerseits die Cousine und Nichte Leopolds, den sie auch während der Ehe 'Onkel' nannte. 1663 wurde die lange geplante Verlobung der Zwölfjährigen verkündet. Die Hochzeit fand zu Ostern 1666 per procuram in Spanien statt. Die Vierzehnjährige reiste mit großem Gefolge von Madrid nach Barcelona, von dort aus in einem prächtigen, goldverzierten Schiff und Begleitgeschwader von 34 Galeeren nach Genua ... zu Land weiter über Mailand und Brescia, wo sie im Oktober 1666 an den kaiserlichen Abgesandten übergeben wurde. Das Kaiserpaar sah sich zum erstenmal in Schottwien. Anfang Dezember zog die Braut endlich in Wien ein.

        A representation of the state of Christianity in England,

      and of it's [sic] decay and danger from Sectaries aswel [sic] as Papists.This, unfortunately anonymous, essay paints a depressing portrait of the Anglican Church in Restoration England. The author notes sadly that Sundays were "now generally scorn'd and neglected by Anabaptists, Libertines, &c. who in an open defiance to Christianity and the Churches laws, designedly make choice upon that day to engage in the most servile works and drudgeries. The Festivals of the Saints have met with a far worse fate, it being accounted superstitious and ridiculous to praise God for their examples ...... We have reason to believe", the writer predicts, "that the Christian faith will be but short-liv'd amongst us".

This, unfortunately anonymous, essay paints a depressing portrait of the Anglican Church in Restoration England. The author notes sadly that Sundays were "now generally scorn'd and neglected by Anabaptists, Libertines, &c. who in an open defiance to Christianity and the Churches laws, designedly make choice upon that day to engage in the most servile works and drudgeries. The Festivals of the Saints have met with a far worse fate, it being accounted superstitious and ridiculous to praise God for their examples ...... We have reason to believe", the writer predicts, "that the Christian faith will be but short-liv'd amongst us".

Christoph Schrader (auch: Christophorus Schraderus) wurde 1601 in Rethmar geboren und starb im April 1680 in Helmstedt. Er war ein deutscher Rhetoriker, Schulverwaltungsbeamter und Bibliothekar. Schrader hing der humanistischen Schule Philipp Melanchthons an und war der erste Hochschullehrer, der an der Universität Helmstedt Vorlesungen in deutscher Sprache hielt. Seine wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten befassten sich hauptsächlich mit der klassischen Philologie. Zu den Helmstedter Druckern namens Müller vergl. Reske ("Die Buchdrucker des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts im deutschen Sprachgebiet") Seite 368 ff. In unserem Fall handelt es sich um Henning Müller den Jüngeren, 1607 geboren, tätig von 1640 bis 1672, gestorben 1675, ab 1672 ist sein Sohn Heinrich David, geboren 1640, als Universitätsdrucker von 1672 bis zu seinem Tode im Jahre 1680 weiter aktiv. Es handelt sich hier um D I E "Standardvorlesung" zur Aristotelischen Rhetorik (Barmer in: "Barockrhetorik", Seite 440, Anmerkung 355). In zahlreichen Adelsbibliotheken der Zeit zufinden, so z.B. hier: "... Von dem Helmstedter Christoph Schrader (gest. 1680) besaß Boineburg dessen Ausgabe der Rhetorik des Aristoteles. ... Die Bibliothek des Johann Christian von Boineburg (1622-1672) zählt zu den großen privaten Büchersammlungen in einem Zeitalter wahrer Sammelleidenschaft. In der Bibliothek materialisieren sich die vielseitigen Interessen und Kenntnisse des Polyhistors Boineburg. Sie ermöglicht auch den Zugang zum Politiker Boineburg, der als Erster Minister unter dem Erzbischof und Kurfürsten Johann Philipp von Schönborn (1605-1673) die Außenpolitik des Kurfürstentums Mainz nach dem Dreißigjährigen Krieg prägte. Boineburgs Bibliothek gewährt zudem Einblicke in das konfessionelle Selbstverständnis eines der bekanntesten Konvertiten seiner Zeit.Darüber hinaus bildet die Bibliothek Grundlage und Gegenstand des ersten großen bibliothekarischen Entwurfs des von Boineburg geförderten Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716), der einen Katalog der Sammlung erstellte.Nicht zuletzt ist die Bibliothek Teil einer umfangreichen Stiftung durch Boineburgs Sohn Philipp Wilhelm (1656-1717) an die Alte Universität Erfurt.Auf der Grundlage des überlieferten Buchbestandes, des Katalogs sowie des Briefwechsels versucht die vorliegende Studie, ein Bild des Büchersammlers und -lesers Boineburg in seiner Zeit zu entwerfen. Sie rekonstruiert die Genese der Sammlung, beschreibt die Aneignung der Texte der Bibliothek durch Boineburg und stellt die individuellen Merkmale der polyhistorisch ausgerichteten Bibliothek im Kontext der privaten Büchersammlungen der Respublica literaria dar. ...

Sept. 1601 zu Rethmar geboren, wo sein Vater Johann S. ( um Anfang Juli 1638) 52 Jahre lang treu des Pfarramtes waltete. Seine Mutter Helene, eine Tochter des Pastors Jacob Rölich in Peine, verlor er schon in früher Jugend ( am 12. Mai 1607). Nachdem er den ersten Unterricht von seinem Vater erhalten hatte, wurde er im Herbst 1610 mit seinem älteren Bruder Heinrich auf die Schule zu Celle geschickt, die sie im J. 1618 mit der zu Hannover vertauschten. Am 16. October 1621 bezog er die Universität Helmstedt. Auffallenderweise sind nicht in diesem Jahre, sondern schon am 6. April 1616 Heinrich und Christoph S. aus Rethmar hier [423] immatriculirt worden. Daß sie vorübergehend 1616 in Helmstedt gewesen sind, ist möglich. Jedenfalls beginnt Christoph Schrader's Studienzeit hier erst später, da er am 24. Juli 1635 selbst schreibt, es sei im 14. Jahre, seit ihn sein Vater zuerst nach Helmstedt geschickt habe. Er wohnte hier anfangs bei dem Professor Berkelmann, dann im Hause des berühmten Theologen Georg Calixt, zu dessen tüchtigsten und begeistertsten Schülern er bald gehörte. Unter den Philosophen hörte er insbesondere bei Konrad Hornejus, Diephold und bei Heidmann, der ihn in das Studium der Philologie einführte. Durch Calixt bekam er wohl schon im J. 1622 das Overbek'sche Stipendium, das ihn in den Stand setzte, 9 Jahre lang sorgenfrei seinen Studien zu leben. Als im J. 1625 Krieg und Pest fast die ganze Hochschule auseinander jagten, folgte er einem Rufe Matthias van Overbek's nach Leiden, wo er am 23. October 1625 immatriculirt wurde und bei Daniel Heinsius, Gerh. Joh. Vossius seine Studien fortsetzte, vorzüglich auch bei Constantin l'Empereur, Wilh. Codde und zwei gelehrten Juden, David de Havo und David Haccohen de Lara, sich im Hebräischen vervollkommnete. Einige Monate weilte er mit Overbek in Hamburg. Nachdem er bereits einige Zeit Prinz Roderich von Württemberg, den Sohn Herzog Julius Friedrich's, im Lateinischen und in der Theologie unterrichtet hatte, verzichtete er 1631 auf das Overbek'sche Stipendium und trat ganz in den Dienst des Prinzen, den er nach dem Haag begleitete. Doch einen Ruf, als Hofprediger nach Stuttgart zu kommen, lehnte er entschieden ab. Das Schwabenland, die dort herrschende theologische Richtung, der Hofdienst hatten keine Anziehungskraft für ihn. Er meinte: Lieber der unterste Diakon in Helmstedt, als der oberste Hofprediger in Stuttgart. So kehrte er denn, nachdem er 6 Wochen noch in Wittenberg verweilt hatte, am 14. Juli 1632 nach seinem geliebten Helmstedt zurück. Zwar wurde er bald nachher nochmals von dort durch kriegerische Ereignisse verscheucht; er ging nach Celle, um dann aber im März 1633 zu bleibendem Aufenthalte nach Helmstedt zurückzukehren. Er wohnte wieder im Hause Calixt's, versah bei einigen Adligen die Stelle eines Hofmeisters und eröffnete mit großem Erfolge Privatvorlesungen, in denen er sogleich im Anfang 58 Zuhörer um sich versammelte. Am 24. Juli 1635 bat er um eine Anstellung an der Hochschule, da er sonst im Herbst zu seinem Vater zurückkehren müsse. Wenige Tage darauf wurde er von Seiten der Universität, die mit ihm eine tüchtige Kraft zu verlieren fürchtete, für den gerade freien Lehrstuhl der Beredsamkeit vorgeschlagen mit dem Bemerken, daß er dereinst in höheren Dingen, im Kirchenamte, wichtige Dienste werde leisten können. Das Gesuch ward bewilligt und am 22. October 1635 wurde S. als professor eloquentiae in die philosophische Facultät ein...

        Galeriae Farnesiane Icones Romanae

      1674. |~||~|EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED COPY SPECIAL PRINTING WITH PLATES IN SEPIA CARRACCI, Annibale. Galeriae Farnesianae Icones Romae in Aedibus Sereniss Ducis Parmensis ab Annibale Carraccioad Vetereum Aemulatione Posterorumq. Admiratione Coloribus Expressae cum Ipsarum Monocromatibus et Ornamentis A Pietro Aquila Delineatae Incisae. Illustrated with 46 engraved plates, most double-spread and most printed in sepia-coloured ink. Folio, 485 x 410 mm, bound in late seventeenth-, early eighteenth-century Roman speckled calf, gilt decorated spine. Rome: Jo. Jacobi De Rubeis, 1674. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a special printing with the large engravings printed fully in sepia-coloured ink. These grand prints reproduce the famous Annibale Carracci frescos on the piano nobile of the Farnese Palace in Rome. The ceiling and wall frescos were commissioned by Ranuccio Farnese and executed between 1597 and 1608 by Annibale Carracci, assisted by his brother Agostino and the artists Domenichino and Lanfranco. Carracci structured his "Love of the Gods" paintings for the Galleria Farnese after the Raphael's Loggia de Psyche and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Carracci's finished cycle for the Farnese Palace represented a pivotal change in painting, a style that moved away from the High Renaissance and anticipated the new Baroque style, which would dominate Italian painting well into the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Contents: A double-spread title-page printed in sepia, double-page engraved memorial portrait of Carracci atop ornamental tomb printed in sepia cut by Pietro Aquila, after the original drawing by Carlo Maratti, double-page engraved dedicatory allegorical scene incorporating the painter Carracci at center, cut by Pietro Aquila, after an original design by Carlo Maratti printed in sepia, double-page engraved dedicatory allegory containing portrait of Archbishop Francesco Maria Febi, head of the Farnese Pinacotheca, designed and engraved by Pietro Aquila printed in sepia, 20 double-page engraved plates of Annibale Carracci frescos from the Farnese Gallery printed in sepia, 2 full-page engraved plates by Annibale Carracci from the Farnese Gallery printed in sepia, 5 large double-spread engraved plates by Pietro da Cortona printed in sepia, 3 large double-spread engraved plates by Pietro da Cortona, 2 large double-spread engraved plates by Giovanni Battista Falda printed in sepia (one of Hadrian's Castello and the Ponte San Angelo the other of the Vaticana with the newly-constructed Bernini colonnade), 1 full-page floor plan and 7 engravings of the Vatican exteriors by Giovanni Battista Falda, 1 page "Dichiaratione" printed in three columns identifying altars, chapels, sepulchers, etc. on the floor plan, 2 double-spread engraved plates of interior Vatican monuments by Bernini (the Balduccino and the Barberini chapel) both by Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi, and finally 1 double-spread engraving of the Caracalla obelisque mounted over the Bernini fountain cut by Franciscus Poilly. The first two large plates engraved by Pietro Aquila were after original designs by Carlo Maratti (1625-1713), who taught Aquila the art of engraving. The preparatory drawing for the allegorical plate is now preserved in the Musée du Louvre, Cabinet des Dessins. The preparatory drawing for Carracci's funeral monument in the Pantheon was also executed by Maratti. Aquila's seventeenth-century engravings of Carracci's mythological paintings depict the pursuits of love, including Hero and Leander, Galatea, Perseus and Andromeda, Diana and Endymion, Venus and Triton, Dione and Anchises, Aurora, Ariadne and the Chorus of Bacchus. Interwoven are the putti unifying the themes and Carracci's influential faux architectural and sculptural forms. The original palace decor included antique statues placed in the niches of the surrounding walls and portrait busts in the recesses above. These statues and sculptures were removed by Bourbons and were replaced by busts of Roman emperors. The original sculptures from the Farnese palace now reside in the National Archeological Museum of Naples National Archeological Museum of Naples and in the Capodimonte Museum Capodimonte Museum in Naples. Our volume not only reproduces Carracci's entire scheme of painted decoration, but the original sculptures as well. This volume is extra-illustrated with the addition of several related engravings including two spectacular Roman views by Falda, one of the Vatican behind Bernini's newly-constructed Tuscan colonnade and the other of Hadrian's mausoleum above the Ponte San Angelo, both printed in special sepia-coloured ink. Also bound-in are 8 engraved plates after Pietro da Cortona, 3 reproducing his masterpieces painted for the Sacchetti family, each of these printed in sepia. Some insignificant wear to edges of binding, professional binding repairs to hinges. Overall a fine copy of these rare impressions printed in sepia-coloured ink. We have been able to locate no other copies printed in sepia! PROVENANCE: Petrus Bulteau de Preville Miles, French bibliophile from Normandy with his 18th-century armorial ex-libris, engraved by P.
