      - Rego, António Pereira, "Instruçam da cavallaria de brida. Tratado unico. Dedicada a Invicto Martyr S. Jorge, Tributo da milicia Romana, defensor da Igleja Catholica, antigo Patrão de Portugal, por. Com hum copioso tratado de alveiteria", Coimbra, na officina de Joam Antunes, 1693. 4º. (20 x 15,5 cms.), 10 hs. + 424 págs. + 3 hs. Ejemplar carente del grabado desplegable del caballo anatomizado. Hermosa encuadernación de finales del siglo XIX en media piel de M. L. Silva (Lisboa), con nervios, título y adornos dorados en lomo; guardas de papel de aguas. Ex libris: Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho. Ref.: Inocêncio, VIII, 231; Pinto de Matos, 497; Carvalho, Dic. bibliogr. militar port., 226. Segunda edición de este importante tratado de caballos impresa póstumamente. Antonio Pereira Rego (1629-1692), Caballero de la Ordem de Christo, perteneció a una familia noble natural Ponte de Lima y desde muy joven mostró una gran habilidad en el manejo de los caballos, como se evidencia en los muchos paratextos que acompañan su obra. Pese a que se menciona una primera edición impresa también en Coimbra en 1679 por José Ferreira, lo cierto es que no se conocen ejemplares de la misma. Lo que sí resulta evidente es que su "Instrucción de caballería" que se complementa con un detallado tratado de albeitería tuvo un gran éxito editorial, pues vería reimpresiones en el mismo taller conimbrigense de Joam Antunes en 1712, 1733 y 1767. El ejemplar que ofrecemos perteneció a la rica y notable biblioteca de Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho (1846-1910), un importante empresario exportador de maderas exóticas que logró coleccionar algunas de las grandes joyas del patrimonio bibliográfico peninsular en su morada lisboeta.

        Limburgum Urbs Ducatus Cognominis Caput

      Amsterdam. unbound. very good. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 15.5" x 20" Beautiful and unusually rendered map of Limbourg in southeastern Belgium. The Vesdre River winds around and through farmland, the hills and the fortress. Tiny scenes, houses and animals dot the landscape. Includes two coats of arms. Originally published in "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae Urbium" (town book of Europe), circa 1693. Expert repairs to centerfold, a few small tears to bottom edge. Margins have been cropped. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world. His most famous work is the "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae," published after 1694, which contained 132 plans and views of European and Asian cities. By 1671, he was producing large folio atlases for both his shop and individual patrons that could contain anywhere between 15 and 150 maps. Today, these atlases grace the collections of many museums and institutions as evidence of the vibrant cartographic trade in Amsterdam in the middle- and late-17th century. This striking map is a rare example from this work.

A collection of sermons for the Spanish military dead. Francisco Xavier de Fresneda (1620-1692) wrote these sermons during a time when a declining Hapsburg Spain was buffeted by continuing military reversals and political instability. Xaxier?s sermons touches on the dead of the wars in Flanders (Eighty Years War), Germany, against the Moors (Moros) of Africa, against the heretics (Thirty Years War), and in America (Nuevo Mundo). The sermons recall the tenor of the old Spanish Reconquista and younger spirit of the inquisition. Intended for a non-clergical cavallero audience, the sermons are in the vernacular.

      with A Through-Bass for the Theorbo-Lute, Bass Viol, Harpsichord, or Organ. Composed by the Best Masters of the Last and Present Age. The Words by several Learned and Pious Persons. The first Book. The 2nd Edition very much Enlarged and Corrected; also four Excellent Anthems of the late Mr H. Purcell's never before Printed. Harmonia Sacra or Divine Hymns and Dialogues with a thorow-bass for the Theorbo-Lute, Bass-Viol, Harpsichord, or Organ. Composed by the Best Masters. The Words by several Learned and Pious Persons. The Second Book. Two Divine Hymns: being a suppliment to the Second Book of Harmoniae Sacra. 1700Harmonia Sacra, a collection of sacred music, was first published by Henry Playford in 1688. A second volume was published in 1693 (the first edition of which is offered here). In 1703, a second edition of the first book was published with additions and corrections. This is bound here with the second book, making an attractive collection. The late 17th century was a (some might say, rare) moment of brilliance in English music, the last one before the 20th century and Henry Purcell was its presiding genius. His work dominates this collection but there is music by William Blow and Matthew Locke. The texts are mainly from biblical or liturgical sources but there are settings of poems by Herbert and Cowley. The music here conjures up feelings of spiritual desolation: it is highly charged and bleak but, in the way of English 17th century melancholy, it offers consolation and comfort.

        Al Rey... que luego que llegaron los últimos Galeones (donde el suplicante vino embarcado del Reyno del Peru... que el suplicante avia trabajado de la Numeracion General de los Naturales de aquel Reyno

      First edition of an exceedingly rare Spanish imprint on Peruvian native's census. Castillo served for 24 years in Peru in both civil and military positions; he last worked as an accountant for the tributes paid by the natives. Spanish imprints on Peruvian native's census´ are not common. At the end, Fernandez de Madrigal a member of the Consejo de su Magestad and a Major in the War Council for the Indies and Peru, certifies that Castillo gave a report on the General Numeration of the Indians of such Provinces, and for the reintegration of the Mita of the minerals from Guancabelica and Potosi. A most rare imprint, of which we find no copy anywhere; only a "Copia de un informe, que hizo al... Conde de la Moncloa... Don Pedro Antonio del Castillo y San Juan, Contador que fue de retassas y tributos de aquel Reyno", published in 1689 is found at a Spanish institution.

        An introduction to a breviary of the history of England with the reign of King William the I.,

      entitled the conqueror. Written by Sir Walter Raleigh, Kt. and dedicated to the then Earl of Salisbury. London : Printed for Sam. Keble at the Great-Turks-Head in Fleet-street. And Dan. Brown at the Black-Swan and Bible without Temple-Bar, 1693. First edition. Small octavo, contemporary calf (boards a little warped; short splits at head and tail of spine); front pastedown with early armorial bookplate of Francis Stratford, Esq.; half title Sir Walter Raleigh's history of the reigne of William the First; frontispiece engraving of Sir Walter Raleigh signedF.H. van Hove, with cartouches of William I and his coat of arms; title page; pp [1 blank], [3 publisher's preface], [1 imprimatur "December 31, 1692, Edm. Bohun."], 1-77, [3 publisher's advertisements]; woodcut head-piece; tiny nick to the lower fore-edge of the preliminary leaves; clean throughout; a good copy. Scarce. Although ostensibly the work of the great Elizabethan navigator, explorer and man of letters Sir Walter Raleigh, this history of William the Conqueror has been attributed by some commentators, at least in part, to Samuel Daniel. Sabin 67599; Brushfield, Bibliography of Sir Walter Raleigh, 240: "The introduction (p. 1-24) may have been written by Raleigh; the breviary (p. 24-77) appears to be an epitome of a section of Daniel's The collection of the history of England, but may antedate it." Records show that the last copy offered for sale at auction was in 1972 (Sotheby's, London).

        Planisfero del mondo nuovo descritto - Planisfero del mondo vecchio descritto

      Venezia 1693 - Coppia di incisioni in rame, mm 465x620 ognuno. Coppia di emisferi dedicati l'uno ad Andrea Marcello, l'altro a Pietro Marcello, fratelli di Federico Marcello Procuratore di San Marco. La dedica appare in alto a sinistra, mentre a destra vi sono le armi della famiglia; in basso negli angoli sono riportati dati di carattere tecnico. Gli emisferi sono esternamente decorati da una fascia zodiacale.Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718) fu cartografo, geografo e cosmografo ufficiale della Repubblica di Venezia dal 1685 e lettore di geografia nel 1689. FondÚ l'Accademia degli Argonauti, la pi? antica societ? geografica del mondo. In precedenza era stato chiamata da Luigi XIV a Parigi per costruire i due celebri enormi globi di Marly. Fu autore di oltre 2000 carte geografiche e 100 opere di vario genere. La sua opera principale Ë l'Atlante Veneto, primo atlante italiano comprendente carte geografiche di tutte le regioni del mondo. Ottimo esemplare perfettamente conservato.Shirley, R.W. Mapping of the world, 548, pl.383; McLaughlin, G. 105; Pair of copper engraving, each mm 465x620. Pair of maps dedicated to the brothers Andrea and Pietro Marcello. The western Hemisphere include Abel Tasman's discoveries in Australia. California is featured as an island on the second Sanson model, with only C. Blanco named. To the north is Stretto d'Anian, northwest is Terra di Iesso, ("Scoperta dagli Holland, l'Anno 1643"), and farther west is Giaponi. The American west is dominated by Nuovo Mexico, in which live the Apaches, seemingly the only Indian tribe named. In the Pacific, portions of New Zealand, Van Diemens land, Carpentaria, and Nuova Guinea are shown. From Coronelli's Atlante Veneto. The Atlante was professionally designed as a continuation of Blaeu's Atlas Maior and by 1701 was extended to embrace up to twelve volumes. The remarkable Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718), encyclopaedist, geographer, inventor and Doctor of Theology, was citizen of the Republic of Venice. He was also one of the most prominent mapmakers and publishers in Europe of his day.Vincenzo Coronelli, in addition to being an ordined Franciscan priest who eventually became Father General of his order, was also one of the most prominent mapmakers and publishers in Europe of his day. He was appointed official Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic in 1685, a year after he founded the world's earliest geographic society, "L'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti" in the same city. Shirley extolls the two world sheets as "a worthwhile addition to any collection. They combine the most up-to-date cartographical information with elegant engraving and retained accompanying decoration".Shirley, R.W. Mapping of the world, 548, pl.383; McLaughlin, G. 105;

        PERSPECTIVA PICTORUM ET ARCHITECTORUM - PROSPETTIVA DE' PITTORI E ARCHITETTI. In quae docetur modus expeditissimus delineandi opticè omnia que pertinent ad Architecturam / In cui s’insegna il modo più sbrigato di mettere in prospettiva tutti i disegni d’Architettura.

      Roma, nella Stamperia di Gio: Giacomo Komarek, 1693-1700. In folio (mm. 405x272), 2 parti in 2 voll., p. pelle bazana settecentesca, sottili cornici dorate ai piatti (lievi abras.), dorso a cordoni con decoraz. e tit. oro su tassello, tagli rossi, 110; 127 cc.nn. di testo e tavole prospettiche incise in rame. - Primo volume: 1 frontesp. latino, 1 frontesp. italiano, 1 antiporta incisa, 1 c. con dedica a “Leopoldo Austriaco Imperadore” in italiano, 1 c. con dedica in latino, 1 c. con “Imprimatur” e “Avvisi ai principianti” (bilingue) e al "verso" la raffigurazione degli strumenti necessari al disegno prospettico, 1 carta bilingue di avviso “Al lettore”; seguono 100 figure numerate con testo bilingue a fronte (come da Indice); 2 cc. con “altre spiegationi delle prime dodeci figure, in latino e in italiano”; 1 c. di Indice. (In alcuni esempl. figura 1 tav. in più, non numerata). - Secondo volume: 1 frontesp. italiano, 1 frontesp. tedesco, 1 antiporta incisa, 2 cc. con dedica a “Giuseppe Primo re de’ Romani” in italiano, 2 cc. con dedica in tedesco, 1 seconda antiporta incisa, 1 c. di avviso al lettore in italiano, 1 c. di avviso al lettore in tedesco, 1 c. con Imprimatur, seguono 118 figure numerate, quasi tutte con testo bilingue a fronte, 1 c. di Indice in italiano, 1 c. di Indice in tedesco, 1 antiporta all’Appendice, l’Appendice con la “Breve instruttione per dipingere a fresco” in italiano di 4 cc., e in tedesco di 4 cc. Le incisioni all’acquaforte sono di Vincenzo Mariotti, allievo dell’Autore. Importantissimo e fondamentale trattato per la storia della teoria della prospettiva, con le due parti provenienti da due diverse versioni ma "entrambe in prima edizione". La Prima parte appartiene alla versione bilingue latino-italiana (rispettivamente in caratteri corsivo e tondo) e la Seconda parte appartiene alla versione bilingue italiano-tedesco (entrambi in carattere tondo). Il lavoro del Pozzo fu sostanzialmente nuovo e originale, in quanto concepito per soddisfare le esigenze pratiche di architetti, scenografi e pittori, senza però mai allontanarsi dall’esattezza scientifica. In questo senso il libro segna un ritorno alla trattatistica di prospettiva da parte di “operatori” artistici, che per quasi tutto il ‘600 ne avevano praticamente lasciato il monopolio agli uomini di scienza. Nella prima parte dell’opera sono trattati i canoni basilari della materia e le regole fondamentali con la loro applicazione ai differenti ordini architettonici. Nella seconda parte il Pozzo descrive un procedimento originale per disegnare la prospettiva, applicato a cupole, altari, fontane, scale e a vari elementi architettonici. Il libro si conclude con la descrizione della tecnica dell’affresco, profondamente conosciuta e spesso utilizzata dal Pozzo. Cfr. Studi e documenti d’architettura, n. 9-10 - Riccardi,I,317-318: “Queste due parti furono più volte ristampate in Roma e furono tradotte in tedesco, francese e inglese - Berlin Kat.,4725 - Comolli,III,173: “Ecco la miglior opera che abbiamo in questo genere.. Uscì per la prima volta in Roma nel 1693 e 1700 nella Stamperia del Komarek in due grandi tomi in folio..” - Fowler,251 - Cicognara,854 - Cat. n. 1 (1983) Libreria Archivolto, p. 68. Lievi arross. solo margin. a un vol., altrimenti esemplare su carta distinta ben conservato. Opera molto rara. "Andrea Pozzo, pittore, architetto e teorico della prospettiva (Trento 1642 - Vienna 1709). Lavorò dapprima a Milano, dove entrò nella Compagnia di Gesù, poi a Genova, a Venezia, nell’Emilia, a Mondovì e a Torino. Chiamato a Roma nel 1681, vi svolse un’inensa attività e vi compì il suo capolavoro: la grandiosa decorazione della tribuna e della volta di S. Ignazio, raffigurante la gloria del Santo (1685-91 ca.). Per invito di Leopoldo I si recò a Vienna nel 1703 e vi rimase sino alla morte. Somma dell’illusionismo barocco è il trattato teorico ”Prospectiva pictorum et architectorum” (1693-1702)". Così Diz. Treccani, IX, p. 716.

        Limburgum Urbs Ducatus Cognominis Caput

      Amsterdam - Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 15.5" x 20" Beautiful and unusually rendered map of Limbourg in southeastern Belgium. The Vesdre River winds around and through farmland, the hills and the fortress. Tiny scenes, houses and animals dot the landscape. Includes two coats of arms. Originally published in "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae Urbium" (town book of Europe), circa 1693. Expert repairs to centerfold, a few small tears to bottom edge. Margins have been cropped. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world. His most famous work is the "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae," published after 1694, which contained 132 plans and views of European and Asian cities. By 1671, he was producing large folio atlases for both his shop and individual patrons that could contain anywhere between 15 and 150 maps. Today, these atlases grace the collections of many museums and institutions as evidence of the vibrant cartographic trade in Amsterdam in the middle- and late-17th century. This striking map is a rare example from this work.

        Historia insectorum generalis in qua verissina mutationem...duce experientia... recepta vulgo insectorum metamorphosis solide refutatur... adjicitur dilucidatio... Ex Belgica latinam fecit Henricus Christianus Henninius. Editio Secunda.

      Ultrajecti [Utrecht], Ottho de Vries, 1693. 4to (19.3 x 15.6 cm). Half totle, title in red and black with woodcut vignette, 212 pp., [xvii]; 13 (mostly) folded engraved plates, one folded table. Contemporary half vellum over marbled boards, spine with gilt title on morocco label, gilt name embossed on front board.l This is the third (second Latin) edition of a work of great scientific merit. Swammerdam laid the foundation of modern insect-classification, which still rests to a great extent upon their evolutionary history. He also proved almost everything then believed about insects wrong, especially spontaneous generation, and in fact the whole ontogenesis, which he demonstrated in very detailed drawings. The live history from egg to adult is shown on several plates. apart from various insects, the ontogeny of a frog is also included. Swammerdam's works are renowned for their depiction of even the most complicated details in the minute creatures (and their even smaller parts) that he investigated. Although Swammerdam died at a very early age, he is considered in some circles to be one of the very important Dutch scientists of the 17th century. The original edition of the present work appeared in Dutch in 1669. With a bookplate pasted on the front pastedown and some browning in the text and on the plates. On the marbled front board H. Laspeyres is printed in gilt. This is probably the German entomologist Jakob Heinrich Laspeyres (1769-1809). Cat. BM(NH) p. 2055; Horn-Schenkling, 21795; Nissen ZBI, 4053.

        Summa Tripartita scholastica, prhilosophiae; sive cursus philosophicus triennalis, in logicam, physicam, et metaphysicam Aristotelis Pars Prima In Logicam

      Sumtibus Iosephi de Contreras Regio Limae Typographi, Lima 1693 - " (* Medina. LIEL: 651). Preliminares + 692 páginas + otras hojas no foliadas que calzan con el orden descrito por Medina. Ex libris manuscrito no identificado en frontispicio. Este libro conjuntamente "con el otro correspondiente a la filosofía" (Medina: 663), son probablemente los Tratados Filosóficos más importantes que se hicieron en Sudamérica en el siglo XVII (ampliamente citados en internet). Mérito enorme el que fueran pensados y elaborados por un hijo del Nuevo Mundo: el Filósofo Jesuita Nicolás de Olea, Catedrático de la Universidad San Marcos y Rector del Colegio Jesuita San Pablo. Nunca se les puede encontrar juntos a los dos volúmenes y acaso tampoco de manera individual. (El tomo "In Logicam" es mucho más raro de hallar). La Biblioteca Nacional del Perú no los posee ni tampoco la Widener Library de la Universidad de Harvard. El Profesor Gonzalo Díaz Díaz ha dicho de él en su monumental "Hombres y Documentos de la Filosofía Española" (1997-1998. Volumen 6 "O-R", Madrid, pp. 19 y 20): "una de las personalidades más relevantes de los ambientes culturales fue autor de varias obras de orientación aristotélica en las que se advierte una clara influencia de Descartes (lo introdujo en Sudamérica), Telesio y Campanella" También siguió a "Giordano Bruno y Thcho Brahe". " "The most important treatise on philosophy, physics and mathematics produced in South America in the 16th Century -by a Jesuit Priest -". 4to; vellum; title page with marginal restorations. PART ONE OF THE FIRST SYSTEMATIC PHILOSOPHICAL TREATISE produced in South America. The second part, of which only one copy is extant, was published by the same printer one year later. The author, Nicolás de Olea, was a Peruvian Jesuit physicist who entered the Company of Jesus in 1652. From 1682 to 1686 he accompanied the Jesuit Provincial Martín de Jáuregui as a consultant to various Jesuit establishments in the Province of Peru. He is considered a Scholastic philosopher, a follower of the thought of Saint Thomas Aquinas, but possessing sufficient ideological expansiveness to cite Thomas Campanella, Giordano Bruno, Tycho Brahe, and other founders and exponents of the New Science. In this treatise, the author introduces the philosophy of René Descartes in Peru. (18) + 692 pp páginas

        Patrimonio di S. Pietro olim Tusca Suburbicaria con le sue più cospicue strade antiche & - Il Lazio con le sue più cospicue strade antiche e moderne.

      Roma 1693 - Dopo aver accuratamente seguito il progetto per l’ampliamento e la sistemazione di Roma, papa Alessandro VII (Fabio Chigi) dava l’incarico a diversi topografi ed agronomi di formare il catasto dell’Agro Romano, conferendo al gesuita Francesco Eschinardi il compito di dirigere la parte cartografica. Il migliore rilievo, oltre a quello di Giovan Battista Cingolani, fu opera dell’Ameti, che realizzò due grandi carte della parte settentrionale e meridionale della provincia di Roma. Come fa giustamente notare Almagià le due carte possono essere in realtà riunite in una sola, avendo in comune il lembo nel quale è rappresentato il basso corso del Tevere con Roma. L’opera si basa sostanzialmente sulla carta che il monaco camaldolese Innocenzo Mattei (1626-79), geografo pontificio sotto Clemente X, realizzo nel 1666. Rispetto alla Tavola esatta dell’antico Latio e Nova Campagna di Roma del Mattei il rilievo dell’Ameti rivela fondamentali analogie in tutti gli elementi del contenuto, compresi i riferimenti all’età classica, alle strade etc; sono aggiunte diverse piccole località, e più notevoli differenze sono riscontrabili per la zona costiera e subcostiera. La carta del Patrimonio di San Pietro ha un enorme cartiglio in alto a sinistra dove assieme alla data, 1696, ed al nome dell’editore Domenico de Rossi, reca la dedica al cardinale Francesco Nerli. Accurata è la descrizione del territorio, con rappresentazione delle zone boschive, delle alture, indicazione dei centri abitati nonché raffigurazione dei laghi di Bolsena, di Bracciano e dello Stagno di Orbetello. La carta del Lazio, dedicata al cardinale Pietro Ottoboni, è anteriore di tre anni e presenta notevoli migliorie nel rilievo delle Paludi Pontine, dove anche l’idrografia è notevolmente diversa. Le carte dell’Ameti furono inserite, assieme a quella del Mattei, nella seconda edizione del Mercurio Geografico, atlante della tipografia De Rossi. Incisioni in rame, eseguita all'acquaforte su quattro matrici ognuna, anticamente unite. Esemplare in ottimo stato conservativo, rifilato ai margini; lievi segni di colla lungo le tracce di piegatura. Bibliografia: Frutaz, Le carte del Lazio, pp. 75-77; Almagià , Documenti Cartografici dello Stato Pontificio, pp. 40-42, 73. Dimensioni 1130x835 e 1130x835. Once he had realized his project to renovate and enlarge Rome, Pope Alexander VII (Fabio Chigi) charged quite a few topographers and agronomists to realize the Roman countryiside land registry, putting the Jesuit Francesco Eschinardi in charge of the cartographic part. The best maps have been drawn by Giovan Battista Cingolati and Ameti, who realized two big size maps of the Northern and Southern neighbourhood of Rome. As Almagià points out, the two maps could be joined to form just one print, since they share a part where the river Tiber and Rome are depicted. This work is basically after Innocenzo Mattei’s (1626-79), a Camaldolese monk, who was official geographer of Clemente X and realized his work in 1666. When compared to Mattei’s Tavola esatta dell’antico Latio e Nova Campagna di Roma, Ameti’s work shows many analogies in different fields: classical references, the names of the streets, etc. It differs from its sources on the addiction of new places, especially along the coasts. The first map (St. Peter’s Heritage) presents a big cartouche on upper left, with the date, 1691, and the printer’s name, Domenico de Rossi, together with dedication to the Cardinal Francesco Nerli. The description of the territory is quite detailed, with wods, heights, the small towns and the lakes of Bolsena, Bracciano and Orbetello. The map of Latium, dedicated to the Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni, has been printed three years before and presents a better relief of the Pontine marshes, and even the hydrography is quite different. Ameti’s map have been included, together with Mattei’s, in the second edition of De Rossi’s Mercurio Geografico. Copperplates, realized in four plates each, joined together in the pas

        Zuiderzee Waddenzee antieke kaart.

      ?Carte des Entrees du Suyder Zee et de L?Embs avec les Isles Bancs et Costes Comprises entre La Hollande et la Frise Orientale.? Gravure vervaardigd in 1693 door Herman van Loon, gedrukt van twee koperplaten, uitgegeven te Amsterdam door Pieter Mortier als deel van diens Le Neptune Fran?ois. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 61 x 87,5 cm.Grote gedetailleerde zeekaart van de ingang van de Zuiderzee gezien van zuid naar noord. De meeste kleine plaatsen zijn aangegeven met een kerk of ander gebouw, van sommige steden zijn de fortificaties te zien. Met inzetkaart van de Zuiderzee van Urk tot aan Amsterdam.De Zuiderzee lag vol zandbanken en andere ondieptes. Daardoor was het een moeilijk vaarwater. Vooral in het noordelijke deel - de huidige Waddenzee - konden schepen met moeite een route vinden. Daarvoor gebruikten schippers kaarten als deze waarop dieptes, zandbanken, bakens en visfuiken zijn aangegeven.Le Neptune Fran?ois, beschouwd als de fraaiste en kwalitatief meest hoogstaande zeeatlas die in de zeventiende eeuw in Amsterdam werd uitgegeven, is een zogenaamde contrefa?on: een nadruk. Pieter Mortier (1661-1711) wilde hiermee de concurrentie aangaan met De nieuwe groote lichtende zeefakkel, de indrukwekkende zeemansgids waarmee Johannes van Keulen (1654-1715) zich vanaf 1681 een monopoliepositie op het terrein van de maritieme cartografie had verworven.Jean Colbert (1619-1683) gaf in de tachtiger jaren van de zeventiende eeuw een groep wiskundigen en astronomen van de Acad?mie Royale des Sciences opdracht om in samenwerking met hydrografen van de Franse marine de kusten van het Europese continent van Noorwegen tot Gibraltar in kaart te brengen. Het resultaat van deze onderneming, een schitterend gegraveerde atlas in 29 bladen, uitgegeven onder verantwoordelijkheid van de koninklijk geograaf Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) rolde in 1693 van de drukpersen van de Imprimerie Royale in Parijs.Nog datzelfde jaar verscheen in Amsterdam de nadruk van Pieter Mortier die identiek was gegraveerd en gedrukt. Mortier, de zoon van een Franse politieke vluchteling, had in 1690 het privilege verkregen om de kaarten en atlassen van Franse uitgevers in Holland te verspreiden. Hij vatte dat recht ruim op. Omdat hij niet aan de originele koperplaten kon komen, liet hij de kaarten opnieuw graveren. Vervolgens bracht hij de atlassen onder vermelding van het oorspronkelijke impressum op de markt. Zo ook Le Neptune Fran?ois.Prijs: ?1.350,-.

Schöne kräftige Abzüge. - Bartoli kam bereits als Jugendlicher um 1643 nach Rom, wo er zunächst Malerei bei Jean Lemaire und Poussin studierte, dann aber zur Kupferstecherei wechselte. Bartoli widmete sich vor allem der Reproduktion von Werken der antiken Kunst und kann als Hauptvertreter der archäologischen Richtung des römischen Kupferstichs angesehen werden. Er fertigte zahlreiche Zeichnungen nach der Antike an, die gestochen und zu Büchern zusammengefasst wurden, deren Text häufig von dem Antiquar Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1693) verfasst wurde. Er publizierte Werke etwa zu antiken Reliefs (Trajanssäule, Marc-Aurel-Säule, zur römischen Malerei, die er in einer Art Corpus vorlegen wollte, zu antiken Gräbern, zu Porträts, Gemmen und Lampen. Bartolis Stichwerke dienten der weiten Verbreitung der Kenntnis der antiken Denkmäler Roms und bilden für zahlreiche Objekte, die nicht mehr im Original erhalten sind, heute eine Primärquelle, z.B. die Malereien des Nasoniergrabs. Bartoli gehörte zu einem Kreis von Antiquaren, Künstlern und Kunst- und Antikenliebhabern im Rom des 17. Jahrhunderts, zu denen unter anderem Poussin, Giovanni Pietro Bellori, Cassiano dal Pozzo und Carlo Antonio dal Pozzo sowie die Kardinäle Francesco Barberini und Camillo Massimo gehörten. Nach dem Tode Belloris hatte Bartoli von 1696 bis zu seinem Tode das Amt des Aufsehers der Antiken im Kirchenstaat inne, des Commissario delle Antichità. Ebenso war er als Nachfolger Belloris Antiquar der Königin Christina von Schweden, deren umfangreiche Sammlungen er betreute und teilweise publizierte. (Zitat)

Image measures 19.5 x 33" The large chart of the NW coast of Africa extends from Cape Boujdour south as far as the Senegal River, with the southern part of the coast depicted in an inset. Oriented to the left, it depicts the region of modern day Western Sahara, Mauritania and Senegal. The sea chart offers incredible detail along the coast noting towns, rivers, islands and coastal features including banks and depth soundings. The map is in good condition with large margins. Minor wear along the centerfold with some offsetting and foxing, large horizontal fold. Original pressmark is visible. Two sheets joined at center. Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, and printseller who worked in Amsterdam. He used advanced Dutch printing methods to produce high quality editions of contemporary French maps by cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. His greatest feat was the nautical atlas "Le Neptune Francois" or "Suite de Neptune Francois", considered to contain the most beautiful examples of cartographic art. Most of the charts from the atlas were based on earlier manuscripts by the Portuguese, who were the first explorers of the African coast.

Queste lettere fino ad allora sconosciute e ripubblicate solo nel 1818 a Modena in "Memorie e lettere inedite finora o disperse di Galilei" (Cinti, 188) sono importanti per dirimere la controversia tra Galilei e Scheiner su chi avesse per primo studiato il fenomeno delle Macchie Solari. Il vol IV contiene inoltre altre quattro lettere di interesse galileiano: una di Mario Guiducci al medesimo Principe Cesi di faccenda letteraria "...ho preso per me il consiglio che V.E. dava al Sig. Galileo..." riguardo "il torto che m'è stato fatto senza ragione da quel buon Sig. Grasso"; e tre di Francesco Stelluti tra cui una nella quale invia a Cesi un madrigale per un'opera di Galileo Galilei: le Macchie Solari. Gamba, 1959 per l'edizione del 1698; Santoro, 388: "Il primo volume fu stampato a Pozzuoli nel 1693"; BL 17th Century Italian Books I, pag. 159; Soria, pag.105; Autori Italiani del'600, 3361.
