Legatura coeva in tutta pergamena rigida, titolo manoscritto al taglio inferiore (sguardie rinnovate). Gora al margine interno superiore della prima parte. Prima edizione. Questo trattato di architettura appartiene ad un genere di letteratura propriamente tecnica e con finalit... pratica che si sviluppa nel '600. A questo genere appartengono i trattati del Branca (Manuale d'architettura, Ascoli, 1629), del Viola Zanini (Della architettura, Padova, 1629), del Barca (Avvertimenti e regole circa l'architettura civile, Milano, 1620), dell'Osio (Architettura civile, Milano 1641). "Alessandro Capra's books on architecture are among the few Italian theoretical treatises published in the seventeenth century? Capra does not consider architecture as the art of building but as a science with a strong engineering aspect." (Millard). Particolarmente interessanti sono i capitoli dedicati alle macchine, da quelle idrauliche, a quelle per il sollevamento e di uso cantieristico, ai mulini, a quelle di uso domestico (battipanni, ventilatore?). Descrive poi strumenti scientifici come il "baculo mensorio", la "verga astronomica" e la "bussola". Il ricco apparato iconografico comprende numerose illustrazioni lungo il testo, il ritratto dell'autore, 2 tavole ripiegate fuori testo, bordure ed iniziali, tutto inciso in xilografia.

Contemporary leather, spine richly gilt and lettered. Excellent copy. The rare first edition of the first systematic work about the nature and causes of rivers, springs, waterfalls, and whirlpools. After the studies in Wittenberg, the Silesian-born naturalist and Lutheran minister traveled through Germany, Switzerland and Holland, observing meanders, waterfalls, rapids, caves, and subterranean flows, later described in his Dissertationes. Herbinius was the earliest direct follower of Athanasius Kircher?s theories on the earth?s underground, with a central eternal fire, and water and fire channels. He called the earth a terraqueous globe, full of holes, cracks, opening and galleries, in which water from the subterrean abyss circulates continuosly. He also investigates how natural elements and actions cause volcanoes, and among the causes of all these natural wonders ?on and below the earth? he list ?the continous movement of water in the subterranean abyss, which, by virtue of motion drives the water up to the surface of the earth; angels; stars; the spirit of the earth; and air enclosed within earth? One of the plate depicts the Paradise ? situated by Herbinius in Palestine - with his rivers. A … [Click Below for Full Description]

Madame de LA FAYETTE, Marie-Madeleine PIOCHE DE LA VERGNE, Gatien COURTILZ DE SANDRAS
First Edition, very rare, long attributed to Madame de La Fayette, published the year of The Princess of Cleves, then Courtilz de Sandras and even Pierre Daniel Huet. Full morocco late nineteenth signed Bellevallée glossy red old. Back to nerves Jansenist. Wide frieze gilded interior. Date tail. Very nice copy, well established, large margins, and unwashed. Unlike The Princess of Cleves, or The Princess of Montpensier, the Memoirs of Holland paper is not a new historical character, but displays as a novel of manners which utiise modern names. The work describes, through the love of a Jewish and a Lusignan, life in the Netherlands in the mid seventeenth century; this is one of the only novels daring to face reality as it is and the work deserves to be distinguished in the invention of French fiction as such. The book interested the history and topography of the Netherlands. It should be noted that this work was in the biggest amateur libraries of the nineteenth century (Lignerolles Rochebilière, Rothschild Techener, etc.). --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

She married a gentleman of substance from Cardigan, James Philips, and seems to have moved effortlessly into the literary circle adorned by Vaughan, Cowley, and Jeremy Taylor. She was best known by her pseudonym ÔOrindaÕ and the name appears on the collection of her Letters, which give a useful picture of the early seventeenth-century literary world. Her translation of CorneilleÕs ÔPompeeÕ was performed in Dublin in 1663 and a collection of her verses was published posthumously in 1664.Ó (Cambridge Guide to English Literature) Mrs. PhilipsÕ poems were circulated in manuscript, and secured for her a considerable reputation. The surreptitious quarto edition produced in 1664 caused her much annoyance, and Marriott, the publisher, was obliged to withdraw it from sale, and publicly to express his regret for having issued it.

Second edition of one of the most important 17th-century Italian travel reports of the Middle East and India. Vincenzo Maria (Murchio) was a Carmelite missionary with a keen eye and much interest to record manners, customs, and natural history. Travelling through Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Persia, Arabia before arriving in India, he returned to his homeland via Muscat. His book is far more then an intinerary of the Carmelite mission to India: book I recounts the journey to Malabar, also mentioning the Middle East, Mecca, Arabia, religion and other subjects. Book two is about the Christians of St. Thomas; book three is on political, religious and social life of Malabar. Book IV, probably prepared with the aid of Father Matthew, describes the plants of Malabar and the return trip to Europe. With a description of Goa. "Perhaps the most important of the 17th century Italian travellers" (Atabey). - A good copy with slight staining and soiling. Atabey 1297 (3rd edition). Streit V, 538. Cat. NHSM I, p. 240.

Reliure du XVIIe. Portant sur le titre à la plume « Maximes de la Rochefoucauld manuscrites. ». Manuscrit des maximes de La Rochefoucauld retournées et travaillées en miroir dans l’entourage immédiat de La Rochefoucauld, ayant servi à l’élaboration de l’édition de 1678 comprenant 96 maximes, reprise d’un manuscrit antérieur. Les maximes s’y présentent dans un ordre anarchique, ne suivant aucune des éditions imprimées anciennes, et comportent des leçons spécifiques à chacune des éditions originales (1665, 1666, 1671, 1675, 1678) mais n’ont aucune des particularités des éditions d’Amsterdam datées 1664, ni de Paris datées 1693. Les maximes sont inversés afin d’en vérifier la pertinence. Retourner les maximes est, en effet dans les cercles littéraires proches de La Rochefoucauld, un critère d’évaluation de la maxime bien construite. C’est pourquoi ces maximes furent livrées par La Rochefoucauld aux contrôles les plus sévères, avant d’être livrés à l’impression. A deux reprises, notre rédacteur écrit, en marge, des remarques révélatrices : folio 56 en marge (une croix) « Lavantage de ces reflexions, est qu’un homme qui les a examinées avec soin et pesées exactement, qui les a regardees, deprez n’ayt peu leur donner atteinte ».

Esmond, Henry, Esq.
London: The MacMillan Company. Henry Esmond relates his own history in memoir fashion, mainly in the third person but occasionally dropping into the first person. Henry, born about 1678, is an orphan and lives near London in the care of French Huguenot refugees. When Henry is about ten years old, Thomas Esmond, third Viscount Castlewood, removes him from his caretakers and takes him to Castlewood; Henry lives at Castlewood as a servant, and it is generally assumed that he is the viscount's illegitimate son. The Catholic viscount opposes the legitimacy of King William III and is killed fighting for James II at the Battle of the Boyne. Castlewood is temporarily occupied by the army and Henry is befriended by a trooper, the writer Richard Steele. The estate passes to Thomas's Protestant cousin Francis Esmond, who becomes the fourth viscount. The new viscount and his wife foster the young Henry; for the first time he eats at the table as an acknowledged member of the family. A quiet, sober, hard-working youth, Henry is devoted to his foster family. Gentle, sensitive Lady Castlewood is his adored mother figure. Her husband is also kind to Esmond, but he is a hard-drinking man of limited intellect and sometimes crude manners, and this causes his wife a great deal of embarrassment.Henry remains at Castlewood until his foster-parents send him to Cambridge University, where they intend him to become a clergyman. However, in Henry's last year at the university, the fourth viscount is killed in a duel. On his deathbed he tells Henry that Thomas Esmond, the third viscount, was in fact … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

Legatura del tempo in piena pelle; dorso a 4 nervi con titoli su tass. e ricchi fregi floreali agli scomparti.

Esemplare ben conservato. Diego de Saavedra Fajardo (1584-1648), grande storico spagnolo, fu ambasciatore presso la Santa Sede; proprio questa lunga e apprezzata carriera diplomatica si pone alla base di questa raccolta di massime politiche (a ciascuna delle quali corrisponde un emblema) che gli garantì notevole fama. L'opera, di tagli anti-machiavellico, si colloca dottrinalmente sulla scia della fortunata letteratura politica sulla ragion di Stato che ebbe inizio alla fine del Cinquecento e si protrasse fino agli anni Quaranta del Seicento.

"Bunyan, John; Albert Ebbo Crous (vert.)"
12°: A-L 12 M 6, gepag.: 269 [3] pp. Titelpagina in houtsnede. Modern kunstleer. Niet in Saalmink."Evenals het vorige exemplaar (IDnr 7215) een volksboekje. De titelplaat toont dezelfde afbeelding, maar het is een andere houtsnede.Vertaling van het beroemde 'Pilgrim's progress from this world, to that which is to come' (Londen, 1678), een boek dat een ongekende verspreiding heeft gekend over de hele wereld, dat vertaald is in 200 talen en dat in Nederland in populariteit het werk van Jacob Cats naar de kroon stak. Het is een allegorie van het leven van de christen op weg naar het ""werkelijke leven"" na de dood. De schrijver, John Bunyan (1626-1688), was een eenvoudig handwerksman, die later voorganger werd van een baptistengemeente in Bedford. Hij heeft zo'n 60 boeken geschreven, maar 'The Pilgrim's Progress' steekt door zijn literaire kwaliteit boven zijn andere werk uit. De eerste Nederlandse uitgaven ervan verschenen vanaf 1682 bij Johannes Boekholt in Amsterdam; diens vierde druk van 1684 is de eerste geïllustreerde, met etsen van Jan Luyken. De titelpagina en de 8 prenten in deze uitgave van Pieter Bandsma zijn kopieën van die etsen; 33 jaar later, in 1762, zou bij Bandsma nog een vierde druk verschijnen, weer met dezelfde prenten.

Seutter Matthias (1678 - 1757) Augsburg
Artist: Seutter Matthias ( - 1757) Augsburg; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca 1720 1678 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 49 x 57; - description: Decorative map of total Italy with Sardegnia, Sicily and Corsica.; -vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.
