. Opaque watercolour on sized parchment, 373 x 298mm., signed lower right: Pinxit Maria S. Merian.

The vase is filled with double Pomegranate blossom, Passion flower, Auricula, Tulip, Iris, Garden Nasturtium, Pheasant Eye, Hyacinth, Fritillary, Rosa Mundi, Carnation and Anemone. Two beetles revive the scene. The flower species all occur in Merian's Flower Books which she produced between 1675 and 1679, when she also made some flower bouquets. This flower piece is from the a later date, after her divorse with Johann Graff, when she started to sign with her maiden name, probably from the early 1690's. The bouquet is in a more lively and natural style than in her former period. Signed works by Maria Sibylla Merian are rare.

Jahrhundert. - Höchst seltenes, großes Flugblatt auf 4 Blättern, zusammengesetzt. Zeigt dramatische Szenen während des Französisch-Niederländischen Krieges (1672-1679). Die zu damaligen Zeit in der Druckgraphik ungewöhnlich drastischen Gewaltszenen sind einzeln nummeriert und auf einem zusätzlichen Blatt erläutert. Bibliographisch nachweisbar sind lediglich drei Exemplare: Herzog August-Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel, Staatsbibliothek Berlin, Preußenmuseum Minden. Füssel erläutert den Stich wie folgt: Auf diesem Schauplatz der Kriegsgräuel finden sich in vielen kleinen Einzelszenen unterschiedliche Formen physischer Gewalt aus dem Französisch-niederländischen Krieg (1672-1679): Vergewaltigungen, Gewalt gegen Kinder, die Ermordung von Zivilisten auf unterschiedlichste Weise. Der Stich stellt ein wahres 'Theater des Schreckens' dar. Im Vordergrund befindet sich ein Haufen toter Frauen- und Kinderkörper auf dem sich ein Schild mit dem Titel der Darstellung befindet. Am Himmel fliegen vier Gestalten: links außen der Teufel, rechts außen der Tod, links zur Mitte ein bewaffneter Reiter, rechts zur Mitte eine auf einem Ungeheuer reitende alte Frau. Sie symbolisieren die vollständige Verkehrung der sozialen Ordnung, ja beschwören eine Art Höllenszenario herauf. Im Bildhintergrund sind brennende und explodierende Städte zu sehen.

STERBEECK, F. VAN.
1675. Antwerpen, Joseph Jacobs, 1675. 4to (198 x 160mm). pp. (38), 396, (20), with engraved frontispiece, 1 folded engraved portrait and 36 (many folded) engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, old handwritten title on spine. Scarce first edition, a reissue appeared 1712. "First edition of the first separate general work on fungi, describing edible and poisonous varieties. L'Escluse has done a study called 'Fungorum in Pannonis Observatorum Historia' which was first published as part of his 'Rariorum Plantarum Historia', 1601. However, according to Nissen, L'Escluse's original manuscript for this treatise with its eighty-seven original drawings had been lost by the publisher, so they had to use other illustrations for the 1611 edition, and these were quite inaccurate. Afterwards the lost manuscript reappeared and Sterbeeck used it as a basis for his work, adding much new material of his own" (Hunt 341). "Frans van Sterbeeck, a Flemish priest of noble extraction, was born and died in Antwerp where he lived for the greater part of his life. During the eight years following his ordination in 1655, while suffering from a chronic illness, he returned his attention to botany, with particular reference to fungi and soon became a recognized expert. He was on friendly terms with other Flemish botanists and in May 1663 was visited by John Ray who admired the rare plants in van Sterbeeck's garden. It was in 1672 that Adriaan David, an Antwerp pharmacist and amateur botanist (he contributed a sonnet to the collection of adulatory tributes to the author which prefaces the 'Theatrum fungor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Testo in lingua italiana. Alcuni capilettera decorati a racemi e abitati, nonché fregi tipografici a silografia. L'opera, in edizione originale, definita assai rara dal Lozzi, è una vasta e pregevole storia della città di Faenza. Tonduzzi, sacerdote faentino, giunse con la sua narrazione fino al 1440 circa, e lasciò il testo incompiuto. Dopo la sua morte, Pietro Maria Cavina (come indica Lozzi citando le proprie fonti) continuò il libro fino a trattare dell'anno 1600 e curò la pubblicazione (benché tale merito vada nel frontespizio a Girolamo Minacci). Cavina è, inoltre, l'autore della vita di Tonduzzi premessa alle Historie, e compresa nelle pagine con numerazione romana. Esemplare dalla legatura in perfette condizioni, completo sia dell'antiporta figurata che del ritratto spesso mancanti, molto raro a trovarsi in queste buone condizioni; qualche macchiolina al frontespizio; lieve, ampia gora da pagina I a pagina VIII; alcune pagine con uniformi, lievi, ossidazioni della carta, più marcata a poche di esse.

"Lemery's highly successful Cours de chymie, which served as the textbook to his popular courses on chemistry, brought French chemical teaching out of the quasi-mystical paracelsian tradition into the mainstream of Cartesian and atomistic natural philosophy" (Norman). It enjoyed unprecedented success and sold, as Fontenelle comments, like a work of romance or satire. Lemery's clear and entertaining presentation of chemistry in corpuscular-mechanist terms contributed to the works overwhelming popularity. It went through numerous editions, and was translated into all the major European languages..

[Triangular Trade]: [Charles II]:
London. 1675.. Broadside, 22 x 14 1/2 inches, printed on two sheets. Old fold lines. Repaired with tissue on verso along vertical fold. A few other small tears or tissue repairs. Very good. A rare broadside, announcing the decree of the English government that all foreign goods destined for British colonies must first pass through England, a policy of mercantilism later termed the "triangle trade." "This program permitted the profits from colonial trade and commerce to center in England, promoted British shipping, and enabled the British government to support itself by taxing this trade as it flowed through England" (DAH III:374). The English government began its mercantilist policies under the Commonwealth government, in a series of "navigation acts" which regulated English trade. The first Navigation Act, passed in 1651, targeted Dutch commerce. It stipulated that only English ships could carry freight into English territories, and that if a ship was not English, then it could only carry goods from the country from whence it hailed - i.e., Dutch ships could only import Dutch goods, etc. Further Acts passed in 1660 and 1663, under the Restoration government of Charles II, isolated trade even further, mandating that British colonial goods only be imported to England and forbidding English trade on anything other than English vessels. This policy of trade, which was continued for the next two hundred years, marked the ascent of British colonial mercantilism and planted the seeds of discontent which resulted in the American Revolution one hundred years later.

In alcuni esemplari trovasi in fine una carta fuori segnatura con l' "Avvertimento dello stampatore ai Lettori", carta della quale non è fatta menzione in Lozzi cit.

Antwerpen, Joseph Jacobs, 1675. 4to (198 x 160mm). pp. (38), 396, (20), with engraved frontispiece, 1 folded engraved portrait and 36 (many folded) engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, old handwritten title on spine. Scarce first edition, a reissue appeared 1712. "First edition of the first separate general work on fungi, describing edible and poisonous varieties. L'Escluse has done a study called 'Fungorum in Pannonis Observatorum Historia' which was first published as part of his 'Rariorum Plantarum Historia', 1601. However, according to Nissen, L'Escluse's original manuscript for this treatise with its eighty-seven original drawings had been lost by the publisher, so they had to use other illustrations for the 1611 edition, and these were quite inaccurate. Afterwards the lost manuscript reappeared and Sterbeeck used it as a basis for his work, adding much new material of his own" (Hunt 341). "Frans van Sterbeeck, a Flemish priest of noble extraction, was born and died in Antwerp where he lived for the greater part of his life. During the eight years following his ordination in 1655, while suffering from a chronic illness, he returned his attention to botany, with particular reference to fungi and soon became a recognized expert. He was on friendly terms with other Flemish botanists and in May 1663 was visited by John Ray who admired the rare plants in van Sterbeeck's garden. It was in 1672 that Adriaan David, an Antwerp pharmacist and amateur botanist (he contributed a sonnet to the collection of adulatory tributes to the author which prefaces the 'Theatrum fungorum'), … [Click Below for Full Description]
