Descrizzione delle imagini dipinte da Rafaelle d'Urbino....; La favola di Amore e Psiche dipinta da Rafaelle d'Urbino, Bellori, Giovanni Pietro (c.1636-1700), artista d'Urbino, G.G.

Covers have moderate rubbing and superficial edge wear. The vellum is impressively clean. The red morocco label reads "Bellori Stanze di Raffael [sic]" and is almost certainly from the original binding of 1695. Two small repaired tears to the title page.

Discusses the artist Raphael (1483-1520). The Vatican City Library has a virtually identical copy. With gratitude to Hugh Pagan for the following description of the text: "First edition of the Roman scholar G.P. Bellori's admirably thorough description of the famous series of paintings by Raphael in the papal apartments in the Vatican Palace. It also provides a full description of Raphael's paintings for the loggia of Psyche in the Villa Farnesina, and an interesting account of the restoration by G .F. Rossi, under the supervision of Carlo Maratta, of Annibale Caracci's cycle of frescoes in the gallery of the Palazzo Farnese. The last eight pages print the speech which Bellori delivered at the annual prize-giving ceremony of the Accademia di San Luca in Rome in 1677, celebrating the esteem in which artists such as Giotto, Gentile Bellini, Titian and Rubens were held by kings or popes." Cicognara 3369.. Presumed First Edition. Hard Cover. Good Plus. Illus. by d'Urbino, Rafaelle. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        A new Method of Educating Children: or, Rules and Directions for the Well Ordering and Governing Them during Their Younger Years Shewing that they are capable, at the Age of Three Years, to be caused to learn Languages, and most Arts and Sciences - also, what method is to be used by breeding women -

      London: Printed for J. Salisbury, at the Rising-Sun in Cornhill and J. Harris, at the Harrow, in the Poultrey, 1695. First edition. 12mo. Title printed within double rule. [8], 102, [10] pp. At foot of title page: Price bound one shilling. Bound in full brown goatskin grained as sheep, boards ruled in blind (preserving the original lower cover), spine titled in gilt, title-page and following leaf have been inlaid at edges, restoration to outer rule at head of title, margins of last leaf repaired, expertly conserved. Wing T3190; OCLC 14560949 . A very scarce little tract by the amazing and entirely self-educated Tryon (1634-1703), the "Pythagorean," vegetarian, mystic and practical philsopher who has often been compared to his admirer Benjamin Franklin, who himself was greatly impressed in his youth by Tryon's WAY TO HEALTH. "- [Franklin] became in his day a 'Tryonist'; nor is it in any degree fanciful to discover a marked likeness between the style of Franklin and the quaint moralising of Tryon, though there is in the latter a vein of mystical piety to which 'Poor Richard,' with all his virtues, is a stranger -" - DAB. Despite some peculiar notions (e.g., eating roots is to be avoided, for "by reason of their Crude and Earthy qualities, they naturally beget wind -"), Tryon's emphasis on diet rings especially modern, and his deep respect for the learning abillities of children underlies his contempt for a system of "schooling" which is based on terror and imprisonment. In his Preface, the author laments the waste of the current system of eduction in which school masters keep "Children (like Spiders in a Circle) a long time under the Terror of their Jurisdiction and Discipline, in order only to promote their own Profit and Interest -" Tryon's treatise is rare - OCLC records only a few copies in the US and the British Isles, with only two copies at auction in the past thirty years

        [Giuseppe Tortoriti] Joseph Tortoriti, faisant le personage de Scaramouche

      Augsburg: Published in Augsburg by Jeremias Wolff, 1695. This is a handsome print, with breathtaking early colour, depicting the celebrated Italian comic actor Guiseppe Tortoriti, in the character of Scaramouche Giuseppe Tortoriti, shown as Scaramouche, was usually Pasqariel, and was known by the latter name. He was one of the leading commedia dell'arte performers when Louis XIV closed the theatre in Paris in 1697 because of a supposed insult to Mme. Maintenon. Louis selected Tortoriti to form a new company, which was allowed to perform in France but not within 30 leagues of Paris. Tortoriti's troupe played mainly around Toulouse. Italian troupes did not perform in Paris again until after Louis' death. This bold print is from a colourful series of costume prints engraved and published by Jeremias Wolff at the beginning of the 18th century. The series depicts prancing figures in flamboyant theatrical costumes, and is a superb example of early costume prints. Costume and trade prints, such as this, became extremely popular in Europe at the close of the seventeenth century and continued to serve as a source of inspiration until the decadent days of the Art Deco movement in the 1920's. This magnificent series depicts the costumes of ballet dancers, and opera singers, as well as the vibrant apparel of a jester at a masque ball. As is typical of this genre of print, the figures are pictured in front of an architectural or pastoral background and richly coloured in thick opaque colour with vibrant gold highlights. The series was executed and produced by the prolific German publisher Jeremias Wolff. Wolff came from a family of engravers and became extremely successful, both as an engraver and as a publisher and printseller. He was one of the most prolific publishers and engravers in Augsburg and is responsible for some of the finest engravings to come out of the city. In addition to a number of other costume books and portraits, he was a successful map publisher and it is for his skill as a cartographic engraver that he is perhaps best known. Colas, Bibliographie General du Costume et de la Mode ; Lipperheide, Katalog der Freiherrlich von Lipperheide'schen Kostum-Bibliothek, 1896-1901. Engraving with superb early colour and rich gold highlights. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 9 5/8 x 6 7/8 inches.

He lived for some years among the Indians, and, on occasion, acted as parish priest or professor of philosophy. His book, published after his return, caused a great sensation, for it was the first to give the world a description of the vast regions from which all foreigners had been jealously excluded by the Spanish authorities. The work was translated into French, Dutch, and German, but its purpose was to urge the English to seize the Spanish territories in the New World."

        Les Amours d'Abailard & d'Heloïse [bound with 6 first and early French editions of their Letters; see below]

      Amsterdam: Chez Pierre Chayer, 1695 - William Levitan, in his recent translation ABELARD & HELOISE. THE LETTERS OF - discusses the printing history of these letters, pointing put that although they are almost entirely "impostures" and have little to do with the original Latin from which they purportedly derive, they nonetheless "came to have a decisive role in how Abelard and Heloise were understood for well over a hundred years. John Hughes' English translation of these into English became the standard in the English-speaking world, and even as late as 1940 editions of the English versions appeared. Alexander Pope based his famous "Eloisa to Abelard" on Hughes translation Jacques Alluis' account of the tragic, legendary love affair between Peter Abelard - the preminent scholastic theologian of his day - and Heloise, his brilliant pupil, was first printed in 1675. In 1695 publisher Pierre Chayer began to issue separatel nthe three letters to Abelard from Héloïse, and the three to Héloïse from Abelard; of the six, only the first letter jad been printed earlier (in 1693 by Chayer); he also reprinted Jacques Alluis' account of the tragic affair in uniform format, with separate title-pages and pagination. Their correspondence is, or purports to be, one of the great series of love letters in the Western world, and although Chayer issued a collected edition later in the same year with a new preface from the printer, this is a bound collection of the separate parts as they first appeared in French. Each bears the imprint of Pierre Chayer, Amsterdam, 1695. Unless otherwise noted they are firsts. They are as follows, in the order of binding; 1.) Lettre d'Héloïse à Abailard. [12]-47 pp. Barbier II, 1136f; OCLC 465189673 (2 copies - none in America). First published by Chayer in 1693. This letter, unlike the 5 others, has every appearance of being authentic, and follows closely (allowing for idiomatic and stylistic differences) the English version of Leviatan. 2.) Réponse d'Abailard à la lettre d'Héloïse. 48 pp. OCLC: 491517699 3.) Lettre seconde d'Heloise à Abailard. 40 pp. OCLC: 67759473 [Variant title ("Seconde lettre -") and pagination (30pp.)] 4.) Lettre troisième d'Heloise à Abailard. 36 pp. OCLC: 67759475 5.) Nouvelle reponse d'Abailard a Heloise. Lettre dernière. 35 [1, blank] pp. OCLC: 456735680 (2 copies) 6.) Histoire des infortunes d'Abailard.

        Pas Kaart Van De Zee Kusten Van Virginia.

      Amsterdam 1695 - "This chart continues south from the van Keulen chart of New York, from the Atlatic City area south to the mouth of Chesapeake Bay, althouth this time orientated with north to the right. Again drawn by C.J. Voogt, it is mainly derived from the Hermann map of 1675, published in England. However, Vooght has an additional source, as yet untraced, from which he has copied a greater number of soundings, so important for safe navigation. The chart is remarkable for the very early appearance of William Penn's Philadelphia, here shown as 'Filadelphy', without even a symbol for a town. The Pennsylvania colony had only been founded by Royal Charter in 1681, and did not gain cty status until 1701."

He discovered protozoa and bacteria and was the first to describe spermatozoa and red blood corpuscles. The first independent part of this celebrated collection of letters addressed to the Royal Society.These letters incorporate his epoch-making experiments with the MICROSCOPE, and his researches and discoveries opened up a new era of scientific investigation and earned him the title ¿Father of Protozoology and Bacteriology¿. Many of the letters are of outstanding importance and include his account of the animalcula. The personal copy of Thomas Molyneux (1661-1733), Irish physician, professor of Physic at Trinity College and fellow of the Royal Society of London. The visit of Molyneux to Leeuwenhoek's home in 1685 on behalf of the Royal Society to inspect his microscopes is well documented in the literature. Molyneux gave a report of his visit in a letter dated February 13, to the secretary of the Royal Society, Francis Aston. It was read at a February meeting: "I have hitherto delayed, answering your last, because I could not give you an account of Mynheer LEEWENHOECK; but last week I was to wait upon him in your name: he shewed me.

        Pera librorum juvenilium: qua, ingenuos, viamque ad eruditionem et bonam mentem affectantes adolescentes donat.

      Altdorf, H. Meyer, 1695. 8:o. Dubbelsidig grav. frontespis,(36),749,770-72,753-940,(2,2 blanka) s. Titelsidan tryckt i rött och svart. Samtida trevligt ngt nött mörkt stänkdekorerat skinnbd med upphöjda bind och oxiderad ryggdekor samt spår efter mindre pappersetiketter, bl.a. nedtill på ryggen. Trevliga målade röda och gulbruna snitt. Ryggskinnet och ytterfalsarna torra och hårdare nötta samt med ett mindre maskhål upptill på ryggen och två minimala i ytterfalsarna. Försättsbladet med spår av en gammal auktionsetikett. Gamla lagningar på s. 113 med förlust av någon bokstav, liten lagning även på s. 123 och reva i yttermarginalen på s. 927. Med namnteckning "Carolus Adolphus" på titelbladet och Säfstaholms litograferade exlibris.. VD17 1:044258S. Johann Hofmann i Nürnberg var förläggare. Detta är endast första delen av fem utgivna. Totalt omfattar verket över 6000 sidor och denna del innehåller bl.a. utdrag ur Plinius och Cicero samt "Præcepta artis rhetoricæ", "poësi germanica" och "poësi latina". "Pera librorum juvenilium", eller fritt översatt "Ryggsäck med böcker för ungdomen", brukar räknas som den första encyklopedin för barn och avsåg att sammanfatta den kunskap som lärdes ut i skolorna. Johann Christoph Wagenseil (1633-1705) var orientalist och professor i Altdorf. Han är bekant bl.a. genom den Nürnbergkrönika han skrev som låg till grund för Wagners "Mästersångarna i Nürnberg". Den "Carolus Adolphus" som skrivit sin namnteckning på titelbladet är identisk med Carl Adolf Gyllenstierna (1699-1733), son till Christoffer Gyllenstierna och prinsessan Katarina av Pfalz, den sistnämnda i sin tur dotter till Karl X Gustavs bror Adolf Johan av Pfalz och Elsa Elisabet Brahe. Carl Adolf Gyllenstierna var därmed syssling till Karl XII och sannolikt använde han sig av signaturen "Carolus Adolphus" för att framhäva sin kungliga börd. Gyllenstierna blev lagman på Gotland och mördades i Karlskrona av Vilhelm Krassow. De flesta böcker som har synlig proveniens ur hans bibliotek är skolböcker från hans ungdom. Hela eller delar av hans bibliotek tycks ha hamnat i det Bondeska släktbiblioteket på Säfstaholm, möjligen genom arv till hans halvsyster Maria Gustafva Gyllenstierna (1672-1737), gift med Carl Bonde. Då det finns spår av en gammal auktionsetikett kan det tänkas att de var ämnade för auktion och att hon antingen förvärvade dem före eller på denna

        Masque en habit de Paysan

      Published in Augsburg by Jeremias Wolff, Augsburg 1695 - This is a handsome print, with breathtaking early colour, depicting the costume of a singer at a masque ball. This bold print is from a colourful series of costume prints engraved and published by Jeremias Wolff at the beginning of the 18th century. The series depicts prancing figures in flamboyant theatrical costumes, and is a superb example of early costume prints. Costume and trade prints, such as this, became extremely popular in Europe at the close of the seventeenth century and continued to serve as a source of inspiration until the decadent days of the Art Deco movement in the 1920's. This magnificent series depicts the costumes of ballet dancers, and opera singers, as well as the vibrant apparel of a jester at a masque ball. As is typical of this genre of print, the figures are pictured in front of an architectural or pastoral background and richly coloured in thick opaque colour with vibrant gold highlights. The series was executed and produced by the prolific German publisher Jeremias Wolff. Wolff came from a family of engravers and became extremely successful, both as an engraver and as a publisher and printseller. He was one of the most prolific publishers and engravers in Augsburg and is responsible for some of the finest engravings to come out of the city. In addition to a number of other costume books and portraits, he was a successful map publisher and it is for his skill as a cartographic engraver that he is perhaps best known. The series in not mentioned in either Colas or Lipperheide. Colas, Bibliographie General du Costume et de la Mode ; Lipperheide, Katalog der Freiherrlich von Lipperheide'schen Kostum-Bibliothek, 1896-1901.

Bellori's admirably thorough description of the famous series of paintings by Raphael in the papal apartments in the Vatican Palace. It also provides a full description of Raphael's paintings for the loggia of Psyche in the Villa Farnesina, and an interesting account of the restoration by G .F. Rossi, under the supervision of Carlo Maratta, of Annibale Caracci's cycle of frescoes in the gallery of the Palazzo Farnese. The last eight pages print the speech which Bellori delivered at the annual prize-giving ceremony of the Accademia di San Luca in Rome in 1677, celebrating the esteem in which artists such as Giotto, Gentile Bellini, Titian and Rubens were held by kings or popes."
