Rubbing, light wear to corners and spine. There is a water stain on the bottom of the pages but does not affect the engraving. Large gift inscription on endpaper.Some light foxing on edges and few print stains. Overall clean and binding is tight. The work first appeared around 1685 as part of a series of copper engravings about the Roman antiquities that the painter, copper engraver and publisher Bartoli and the art writer and collector Bellori attempted to preserve and document the "non-literary, pictorial sources of antiquity." Giovanni Giacomo Rossi and his successor from 1693, Domenico Rossi, then issued a new, changed edition of the work. Bartoli's etchings were aimed at detail, accurate accuracy and formal, aesthetic reproduction. The place of storage and, in some cases, the bearer of the relief are mentioned, although without indication of size and material. The reliefs are treated primarily as iconographic evidence of the history and culture of Rome. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De Sacris Aedificiis a Constantino Magno Constructis.

      Komarek, Rome., 1693. First edition. Folio. pp [xvi], 217, [i errata], [ii bookseller's catalogue]. Allegorical engraved frontispiece by Arnoldo van Westerhout after Giovanni Battista Lenardi. 35 engraved plates, 10 of which are folding. Early eighteenth century full calf with raised band and gilt decorations.Giovanni Giustino Ciampini (1633-1698) was an eminent antiquary whose position as Magister brevium gratiae in the Apostolic Chancery in Rome enabled him to pursue his interests in books, coins, statues and the sciences, as well as archaeology. The present title is one of two major illustrated works of continuing utility and is largely concerned with the ancient churches built in Rome by Constantine the Great. The latter part of the book goes to the Campagna, Constantinople (including the Haghia Sofia) and Palestine (including the Church of the Nativity). Many of the plates are of an unprecedented architectural accuracy and depict features which have since been lost to change and decay.Sympathetically rebacked with decorated spine relaid, front endpapers renewed. Very good indeed. Internally exceptionally clean.

        A NATURAL HISTORY CONTAINING MANY NOT COMMON OBSERVATIONS: Extracted Out of the Best Modern Writers.

      London: Printed for R. Bentley, 1693. Pp. [16], 469, [3, ads]. Contemporary plain full panelled calf, rebacked at some point, god and strong, with a little general wear and some rubbing, corners more worn and rounded, but firm. Contents clean and tight; good margins; title page strengthened along hinge with Japanese tisse. Contemporary engraved armorial bookplate to the verso of the title page above which written in manuscript '11. Apr. 1728 Collated & perfect.' A very good copy. [As its subtitles suggest, this was a work of synthesis rather than direct and original observation. Blount was a tireless reader and accumulator of other writers' wisdom - his most notable work, Censura Celebrorum Authorum (1690), was a collection of things famous authors had said about each other and in this work he brings together observations from a wide range of contemporary authorities, accommodating them in an overall argument which reflects a belief in the divine authorship of the universe. As he writes in his preface, ‘Every Flower of the Field, every Fibre of a Plant, every Particle of an Insect, carries with it the Impress of its Maker, and can (if duly consider'd) read us Lectures of Ethicks or Divinity'. Among the aspects of natural history(amber, coral, tea and coffee, silver, diamonds, glow-worms, spiders etc.) that Blount considers are ‘VULCANO's, or SUBTERRANEAN FIRES' - Admin (Dr Ralph Harrington); Volcanism Blog.] .

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.

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.

      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.

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."

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.

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;

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.
