RIDINGER, Johann Elias.
1698. Rare first edition, in German and French, of a great coloured print series, with a 39-page letterpress text, showing horses in a wide variety of colours and patterns by Johann Elias Ridinger (1698-1767), a German painter, graphic artist and engraver of animals, most famous for his horses: "one of the most beautiful illustrated animal books of the 18th century . lavishly illustrated and also very rare" (Dejager). Together with the book we offer Ridinger's fine original pen and ink, ink wash and chalk drawing for the second plate. While many books or print series on horses show them standing or occasionally running in a race, most portraits in the present series show them much more naturally: stamping or pawing the ground, rearing up, jumping, kicking, sitting and rolling on the ground. When they do stand still they are often turning their heads.With significant tears in 2 plates, unobtrusively repaired without loss, but otherwise in good condition, with minor, mostly marginal repairs, small smudges or stains, or minor browned patches in a few other plates. The drawing has a minor crease in the paper, affecting only the background, but is otherwise in fine condition, with only a couple minor marginal defects, not approaching the drawn image. A beautiful and charming horse book, essential to any collection, with the original drawing for one of the plates in fine condition.l Cobres 310; Dejager 252; Mennessier de la Lance II, 429; Nissen, ZBI 3418; for the Adalbert von Lanna collection: Lugt I, pp. 516 ff. (no. 2773). [Attributes: First Edition]

During the summer he began the process of gaining the licence of the Royal College of Physicians, and on 14 and 23 August, and 11 September 1696, he underwent the formal examinations in physiology, pathology, and therapeutics.

HALMA, François.
- Nijhoff & V. Hattum 126; STCN (5 copies). First and only edition of a Dutch poem in praise of Chateau Agimont or Neercanne on the Dutch-Belgian border near Maastricht, and in praise of other attractions in the vicinity, by François Halma. It starts with a six-page verse dedication to Daniel Wolf, Baron van Dopff, who had the chateau built in 1698, followed by an acknowledgement in verse to the Maastricht city officials, and a four-page note to the reader. The double-page plates show the chateau and estate itself with elaborate gardens (and a ship sailing in the artificial lake), a view of the city of Maastricht, and the great stone-vaulted interior of the St. Pietersberg mine south of Maastricht. The chateau and probably the other illustrations were drawn by Guillaume de Bruyn (1649-1719) and engraved by J. Karrewyn. On its publication in 1715, Halma's book received an enthusiastic 19-page report in Boekzaal der geleerde wereld, which gave particular attention to the typography. With the bookplate and library stamps. Endleaves waterstained, browned throughout with some occasional spots and stains. Otherwise a good copy.
