        Isola di Capri/La Citta di Napoli

      Venezia 1696 - "Interessante folio tratto dal primo volume del celebre "Isolario dell'Atlante Veneto" di V. Coronelli, edito a Venezia nel 1696. Il folio, corrispondente alle pagine 113 e 114, e contiene, inserite nel testo, due tavole calcografiche raffiguranti rispettivamente: una pianta con rilievo dell'isola di Capri e una veduta prospettica della città di Napoli. La tavola (280x210 mm) di Capri mostra l'isola sia in pianta che in scorcio da Nord. Riporta segnata la Grotta Azzurra con l'antico nome di Grotta Gràdola, dal vicino omonimo scalo antico, mentre il monte S. Michele è riportato come Monte Calvario e sulla cima è piantata una grande croce. La veduta di Napoli del Coronelli (312x173 mm) , è ripresa dall'immagine pubblicata nella "Guida dei Forestieri " di Pompeo Sarnelli (1649-1724) pubblicata da Antonio Bulifon nel 1685. Coronelli utilizzerà la stessa veduta anche nella sua raccoltà Città e fortezze d'Europa; nel Teatro delle città, entrambe del 1697, infine, nella serieTeatro della Guerra, del 1707-1708, con la differenza che nell'Isolario e nel Teatro della Guerra la veduta viene pubblicata priva di dedica e di legenda nella parte inferiore. (cfr. Bellucci - Valerio, 2007, p. 156 n. 95) Il folio è in ottimo stato di conservazione" Dimensioni 360 492mm

        Two proposals, humbly offer'd to the Honourable House of Commons, now assembled in Parliament. I. That a duty be laid on malt, in the stead of the present duty on beer and ale; and likewise, that the several engagements that Revenue lies under, be transferr'd on that of malt. II. That a duty be laid on malt, and the present duty on beer and ale be continued. To which is annex'd an Accompt, what in all probability the frauds of brewers do amount to, and wherein such frauds are prejudicial to the King, to the Subject, and to the Trade itself: likewise by what means such grievances are most properly redress'd.

Thus his first reason was that, 'Such a tax will be less than usually taxes are, by reason every person will pay proportionable in the price of malt. The more universal any tax is, it is to be supposed ... to be the more equal; and I presume, no person will deny that such a tax will prove so universal, that not any person will escape paying his proportion according to his consumption, ergo, no person can complain; who consumes little, will have but little to pay'.

Small 8vo (15 x 9.5 cm). 19th-century(?) sheepskin parchment.

      - Bierens de Haan 902; Muller, Pop. proza 1050; STCN (1 copy); WorldCat (same copy); cf. Bywater & Yamey, pp. 103-104. Second copy located of the 1696 edition of Dirck de Hollander's standard revision of a standard Dutch mathematical exercise book (with answers) for use in schools. The present edition describes itself as the fifth, but is at least the tenth and probably little changed from the 1685 edition, which also called itself the fifth. All 17th-century editions are very rare, the STCN recording 3 copies of one (1664) and no more than 2 copies of any other (some are not recorded in the STCN at all). The simple assignments are designed to teach basic arithmetic and bookkeeping for practical commercial purposes. David Cock was an Arnhem school master, active as such in at least the years 1641 to 1652. His present text book was his most successful work, with many further editions and adaptations to 1799.Slightly browned, but still in good condition. Boards slightly warped. A valuable window into 17th-century Dutch education and training for trade and commerce.

        Il Lazio con le sue più cospicue strade antiche e moderne..

      1696. Acquaforte e bulino, 1696. Magnifica prova, intagliata su quattro matrici, impressa su carta vergata coeva ed unita. Esemplare con coloritura coeva dei contorni, con margini, leggere ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dopo aver accuratamente seguito il progetto per l'ampliamento e la sistemazione di Roma, papa Alessandro VII (Fabio Chigi) affida l'incarico di formare il catasto dell'Agro Romano a diversi topografi ed agronomi, conferendo al gesuita Francesco Eschinardi il compito di dirigere la parte cartografica. Il rilievo migliore, 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. L'opera si basa sostanzialmente sulla carta che il monaco camaldolese Innocenzo Mattei (1626-79), geografo pontificio sotto Clemente X, realizzò 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 ecc., mentre sono aggiunte diverse piccole località, e differenze più notevoli sono riscontrabili per la zona costiera e sub costiera. 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. Bibliografia: Frutaz, Le carte del Lazio, pp. 75-77; Almagià, Documenti Cartografici dello Stato Pontificio, pp. 40-42, 73. Dimensioni 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 past, with the technique of etching. Example in excellent condition, trimmed to platemark; sings of glue along the old folds.

        Lilli Gregori Gyraldi Opera Omnia duobus tomis distincta [Johannes Jens, ed.]

      Jacob Hackius, Cornelius Boutesteyn, Johannes Du Vivie, Pieter and Johannes Vander Aa, and Jordan Luchtmans, Leiden 1696 - Folio (376 x 245). 2 works in one volume, each with separate title-page. Text in the original Latin, with some use of Greek and Hebrew types. Pagination: [10] ff., 676 cols., [2] ff., 685-772 cols., [13] ff., (Index); [2] ff., 928 cols., 1 p. (numbered "929"). Collation: *7 **2 ***1 A-Lll4; [pi]2 A-Qqq4. COMPLETE. With an allegorical frontispiece + 9 engraved plates (of which 2 are double-page and folding). Bound in contemporary sprinkled calf (worn along extremities), sympathetically rebacked with new spine in the style of the period, corners renewed, original pastedowns and endleaves preserved. Early blind-stamps of the now-defunct Theological Institute of Connecticut on first two and final two leaves. Minor even browning. THE FINEST EDITION of the works of Giraldi, Renaissance Italian poet and classical scholar; this imposing folio volume was finely printed and illustrated with engraved plates of high quality by Jan van den Aveelen after drawings by F. Boitard. Giraldi (1479-1552) was a man of great erudition. His 'Historia de diis gentium' was the first systematic study of Greek and Roman mythology, and his 'De annis et mensibus' and 'Calendarium Romanum et Graecum' helped to bring about the reform of the calender. It is a remarkable fact that Giraldi names CHAUCER ("Galfredus Chauserus") in his text (vol. II, col. 557 - G), noting Chaucer's high esteem in Britain and his many works, and describing him as a "Knight." Giraldi's information probably taken from John Bale (see George B. Pace, "Giraldi on Chaucer" in: The Chaucer Review, Vol. 7, No. 4, Spring, 1973, pp. 295-296). The 'Historia de diis gentium' (first published in 1548) is an influential encyclopedic manual of the Greek gods and goddesses, and forms the first part of Vol. 1. Henry Hallam praises this treatise "A work of considerable merit for the times, by Lilio Gregorio Giraldi, one of the most eminent scholars of that age, entitled 'Historia de Diis Gentium.' It had been preceded by one of inferior reputation, the Mythologia of Natalia Comes." According to the Biographie Universelle, "Giraldi is the first who has treated properly the subject of Classical Mythology, so difficult on account of its extent and complexity. He made use not only of all Greek and Latin authors, but of ancient inscriptions, which he has explained with much sagacity. Sometimes the multiplicity of his quotations renders him obscure, but the 'Historia de Diis Gentium' is still consulted." This edition features a double-page engraving which acts as a pictorial table of contents to assist the reader in locating each gods' entry. In the text, Giraldus refers to the works of Didodorus Siculus (Greek historian, 1st c. BCE) and his great work on mythology A second double-page engraving depicts medallions of ancient Greece and Rome. A section on The Muses has a full-page engraving; the section on Hercules features a spectacular engraving of the life and labors of Hercules including the infant Hercules strangling snakes put in his crib by Juno, his struggle with Atlas and his battles with the Gorgon, the bull and Cerberus the three-headed dog that guards the gates of Hades. The other fine engravings include a plate for De navigiis libellus, the funeral of Carolum Milthzienum Germanum, a mythological convocation of famous Greek and Latin poets, and a plate of the signs of the Zodiac, flanked by Bacchus, Ceres and Janus. Giraldi's life was filled with ill-health, poverty, and neglect. He lost all his property in the Sack of Rome (1527), which coincided with the death of his patron Cardinal Rangone. "He is alluded to with sorrowful regret by Montaigne in one of his Essais (I, 34), as having ended his days in utter destitution. His epitaph makes touching and graceful allusion to the sadness of his end. Numerous testimonies to his profundity and accuracy have been given both by contemporary and by later scholars" (E-B). Giraldi was a likely prototype for the mysterious Renaissance writer 'Giraldus' wh

Ce volume réunit les grands textes sur l'anatomie et la physiologie de Lorenzo Bellini (1643-1704). Elève de Redi et Borelli, il applique dans ses études une théorie mécanique de la physiologie du corps humain. "The "Opuscula" developed Bellini's earlier iatromecanical themes most fully. Organisazed onto postulates, theorems, and corollaries, it treats problems ranging from the hydraulics of intrauterine and extrauterine circulation to the mechanics of the "contractile villi". For example he considered the blood to be a fluid flowing through conical vessels, according to Borelli's laws of hydraulics, and he imagined that the "contractile villi" (which explain the body's reaction to stimuli) expand, contract, and vibrate like ordinary musical stings. In these carefully stated positions Bellini hoped to explain all important physiological phenomena according to the laws of mechanics." DSB 1, 593. Dos légèrement frotté, intérieur très frais. *****. In-4. Collation : (20), 261, (3) pp., 3 planches h.-t. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure du XVIIIe.).

THE FINEST EDITION of the works of Giraldi, Renaissance Italian poet and classical scholar; this imposing folio volume was finely printed and illustrated with engraved plates of high quality by Jan van den Aveelen after drawings by F. Boitard. Giraldi (1479-1552) was a man of great erudition. His 'Historia de diis gentium' was the first systematic study of Greek and Roman mythology, and his 'De annis et mensibus' and 'Calendarium Romanum et Graecum' helped to bring about the reform of the calender. It is a remarkable fact that Giraldi names CHAUCER ("Galfredus Chauserus") in his text (vol. II, col. 557 - G), noting Chaucer's high esteem in Britain and his many works, and describing him as a "Knight." Giraldi's information probably taken from John Bale (see George B. Pace, "Giraldi on Chaucer" in: The Chaucer Review, Vol. 7, No. 4, Spring, 1973, pp. 295-296). The 'Historia de diis gentium' (first published in 1548) is an influential encyclopedic manual of the Greek gods and goddesses, and forms the first part of Vol. 1. Henry Hallam praises this treatise "A work of considerable merit for the times, by Lilio Gregorio Giraldi, one of the most eminent scholars of that age, entitled 'Historia de Diis Gentium.' It had been preceded by one of inferior reputation, the Mythologia of Natalia Comes." According to the Biographie Universelle, "Giraldi is the first who has treated properly the subject of Classical Mythology, so difficult on account of its extent and complexity. He made use not only of all Greek and Latin authors, but of ancient inscriptions, which he has explained with much sagacity. Sometimes the multiplicity of his quotations renders him obscure, but the 'Historia de Diis Gentium' is still consulted." This edition features a double-page engraving which acts as a pictorial table of contents to assist the reader in locating each gods' entry. In the text, Giraldus refers to the works of Didodorus Siculus (Greek historian, 1st c. BCE) and his great work on mythology A second double-page engraving depicts medallions of ancient Greece and Rome. A section on The Muses has a full-page engraving; the section on Hercules features a spectacular engraving of the life and labors of Hercules including the infant Hercules strangling snakes put in his crib by Juno, his struggle with Atlas and his battles with the Gorgon, the bull and Cerberus the three-headed dog that guards the gates of Hades. The other fine engravings include a plate for De navigiis libellus, the funeral of Carolum Milthzienum Germanum, a mythological convocation of famous Greek and Latin poets, and a plate of the signs of the Zodiac, flanked by Bacchus, Ceres and Janus. Giraldi's life was filled with ill-health, poverty, and neglect. He lost all his property in the Sack of Rome (1527), which coincided with the death of his patron Cardinal Rangone. "He is alluded to with sorrowful regret by Montaigne in one of his Essais (I, 34), as having ended his days in utter destitution. His epitaph makes touching and graceful allusion to the sadness of his end. Numerous testimonies to his profundity and accuracy have been given both by contemporary and by later scholars" (E-B). Giraldi was a likely prototype for the mysterious Renaissance writer 'Giraldus' which William Butler Yeats described in "A Vision." Therein Yeats bases his mystical doctrine of "gyres" on an imaginary treatise "Speculum Angelorum et hominis," supposedly printed at Cracow in 1594. Other works by Giraldi contained in this massive folio include studies of the sacrificial rituals of various religions; the Ten Muses; Hercules and his famous 'labors'; ships, shipbuilding, navigation and other naval affairs of the ancients; funeral rites and customs of various ancient cultures; a biographical and literary encyclopedia of ancient poets; an interpretation of the mystical symbols used by Pythagoras and the Pythagoreans; a very curious work on the famous 'Aenigmata' riddles; an assessment of contemporary (i.e. Renaissance) Italian poets; and a collection of Giraldi's own poetry.
