London, c.1675, second state. Coloured. 330 x 445mm. The complete route, Monmouth and Lampeter passing through Abergavenny and Brecon. Plate 77 from Ogilby's 'Britannia', the first national road-atlas of any country in Western Europe. It was composed of maps of seventy-three major roads and cross-roads, presented as trompe-l'œil scrolls, each with a decorative title cartouche, in this case mountain gats and putti. It was the first English atlas on a uniform scale, at one inch to a mile, and the 'mile' Ogilby used became the national standard, the statute mile of 1,760 yards. Ogilby claimed that 26,600 miles of roads were surveyed in the course of preparing the atlas, on foot using the surveyor's wheel depicted in the cartouche, but only about 7,500 were actually depicted in print. It was only after the 'Britannia' that roads started being shown on county maps. Second state, with plate number bottom right.

John Ogilby
13 1/8" x 17 1/4". covering the road from Warrington to West Chester and the branch from Manchester, via Stockport and Buxton, to Derby.A strong, uncoloured impression, as issued, of plate no. 90 from Ogilby's monumental survey of the roads of England and Wales. Covering about 7500 miles and undertaken in his late sixties, it marked the culmination of an extraordinary life encompassing the careers of dancing master, theatre impresario, translator, poet, bookseller, surveyor, cartographer and publisher. Taken at a consistent scale of 1 inch to the mile it revealed the detailed skeleton of the country previously only hinted at : hedges, walls, bridges, hills, streams, fields, houses - even gallows. Britannia was commercially successful and as a result, heavily plagiarised; but gave Ogilby, who died in 1676, the lasting recognition that his efforts deserved.

Plate 91 from Ogilby's 'Britannia', the first national road-atlas of any country in Western Europe. It was composed of maps of seventy-three major roads and cross-roads, presented as trompe-l'œil scrolls, each with a decorative title cartouche, in this case Neptune and Venus in sea-shell chariots. It was the first English atlas on a uniform scale, at one inch to a mile, and the 'mile' Ogilby used became the national standard, the statute mile of 1,760 yards. Ogilby claimed that 26,600 miles of roads were surveyed in the course of preparing the atlas, on foot using the surveyor's wheel depicted in the cartouche, but only about 7,500 were actually depicted in print. It was only after the 'Britannia' that roads started being shown on county maps. Second state, with plate number bottom right.

Giovanni Battista FALDA (Valduggia, Novara, 1643; Rome, 1678)
1675. "Bella e accurata veduta della fontana a Ponte Sisto, progettata da Domenico Fontana, pubblicata nel primo libro della celebre opera ""Le Fontane di Roma"", edita da G.G.de Rossi ""alla Pace"", in 4 volumi, intorno al 1690. Falda, che muore a Roma nel 1678, incise le tavole del primo e del secondo volume, intitolati rispettivamente dal titolo ""Le Fontane di Roma nelle Piazze, e Luoghi Publici Della Citta..."" e ""Le fontane delle ville di Frascati, nel Tvscvlano..."" Le tavole del terzo e quarto volume, rispettivamente ""Le fontane ne' palazzi e ne' giardini di Roma..."" e ""Le fontane del giardino Estense in Tivoli..."", furono, invece, incisi da G. F. Venturini. Le fontane del Falda godettero di grande successo: è da ricordare la celebre raccolta ""Romanorum fontinalia ..."" pubblicata a Norimberga nel 1685, dove incisori quali Hans Ulrich Franck, Suzanne Marie von Sandrart e Johannes Mayer riutilizzarono i rami del Falda sulle fontane, animando con personaggi e particolari fiamminghi le notissime vedute romane. Incisione su rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione." "Etching, in perfect condition. Example in the first state, from "" Il nuovo teatro delle fabriche, et edificii, in prospettiva di Roma moderna, sotto il felice pontificato di N. S. papa Alessandro VII..."". 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.

Old calf neatly rebacked, red morocco label titled in gilt, a good copy. Third edition, well printed and on good paper. First printed in 1615 in Latin (English translation 1625), Camden's study was the first detailed history of Elizabeth's reign. "[He] began work in 1607, reputedly at the urging of William Cecil, Lord Burghley, one of Elizabeth's principal advisers. Camden was able to use primary sources, such as Sir John Fortescue, Elizabeth's last Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Henry Cuffe, the ill-fated Earl of Essex... Camden had known Elizabeth personally, and wrote much of the history from state papers and letters made available to him by Burghley...". See: Trevor-Roper, Queen Elizabeth's First Historian. William Camden and the Beginnings of English Civil History. Neale lecture in English history; 1971." Wing C-362.
