Auctore Antonio Bombardino patavino in patrio lyceo rerum criminalium interprete. Pars prima [unica pubblicata!].Patavii, typis. Sem. apud Joannem Manfrè, 1713.

Antonio Bombardini (1666-1726), nobile padovano, fu per quasi trent'anni professore a Padova (diritto canonico, criminale e civile).

         Flos Solis Prolifer

      1713 - copper engraved plate with recent hand colouring; overall size 51 x 44 cm (cropped); plate size 49 x 40 cm. 3rd edition. text on verso.- A magnificent print from the ‘Hortus Eystettensis’ [The Garden of Eichstatt], one of the most amazing botanical books of the 17th century ever produced!- Basilius Besler, an apothecary and botanist from Nurnberg, was the curator of the prince bishop, Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, of Eichstätt in Bavaria. The bishop took great pride in the gardens of his palace, Willibaldsburg, which rivalled other magnificent gardens in Europe, and asked Besler to compile a codex of all the plants growing there which, initially, was started in 1596 and designed by Joachim Camerius the Younger (1534-1598). It took Besler 16 years to complete the task; unfortunately, the bishop died weeks before the publication of the Hortus. - The garden was sacked by Swedish troops in 1633/4 during the 30 Year War but re-opened in 1998 after reconstruction, following closely the outline of the book.- What makes the Hortus so unique is that instead of portraying medicinal or culinary plants, the emphasis was on garden flowers, herbs, vegetables and exotic plants. These were depicted almost life size with great detail, and arranged artistically and pleasing to even the modern eye, with an average of 3 plants on one sheet. This arrangement made up a total of 1084 plants on 367 copper engravings on 368 large folio sized sheets. - First published in 1613, 300 copies were printed which took over four years to sell. Two version were produced of the first edition: one with text on verso of the plant print, intended as reference books; the second without text, on quality paper and lavishly hand-coloured, used as presentation or subscriber copies. In 1640 and 1713, two further editions were published. - The luxury version sold for an exorbitant 500 florins, while the plain, uncoloured copies went for 35 florins each. Besler could finally purchase a comfortable home in a fashionable part of Nürnberg at a price of 2 500 florins – five coloured copies' worth of ‘Hortus Eystettensis'!- de Belder 23, 24, 25; Nissen 158- Paper oat meal coloured; light horizontal centre crease (due to drying on a line); additional smaller printer’s creases; one vertical slight crease on ;ower right part; some text off set from verso; stitch holes in right margin; minor marginal tears; remnants of old paper hinges and repair tape on verso; rust spots; right margin 4 cm long tear, repaired with tape, into image, but hardly visible; o/w vg cond.

         The Roads of England According to Mr Ogilby's Survey.

      1713 - London: George Willdey, c.1713. Contemporary colour refreshed. 590 x 595mm. Repairs to folds, laid on archival paper. A scarce separate-issue map of England and Wales arranged to show the roads as surveyed for John Ogilby's 'Britannia'. To make the detail marked on the roads clear (for example the distances between towns) the geographical outline of the country is distorted, fitting into a circle. Bottom left there is no attempt to show the Cornish peninsula, yet Land's End is marked. The rich borders are decorated with acanthus leaves, with roundels containing armorials. The map is unusual in that it was printed from two plates, a circular plate, 525mm in diameter, for the map and a second plate for the border. As this border has no distinct 'up', examples exist where the border is rotated in relation to the map into all four cardinals. This example is rotated 90º clockwise to the illustration in Shirley. The map can also be found without the border. Ogilby's 'Britannia' was the world's first printed road atlas, published 1675, a hugely-influential publication; soon his roads started appearing on British county maps, and, nearly forty years later, Ogilby's work was still being used. SHIRLEY: Willdey 1, 'striking road map'; this second state, not listed in Shirley, has apparent 'crossing-out' lines through Willdey's imprint.

         Planisphere Terrestre Suivant les nouvelles Observations des Astronomes Dressé et presenté au Roy tres Chretien par Mr. Cassini le Fils, de l'Academie Royal des Sciences.

      1713 - Leiden: van der Aa, 1713. Coloured, 550 x 665mm. Narrow top margin. A close copy of Jacques Cassini's extremely rare map published by Nolin in 1696, showing the world on an Azimuthal equidistant projection (i.e. in a single sphere, centred on the North Pole, heavily distorting the Antipodes. This, in turn, was based on Jean-Dominique Cassini's 8-metre map prepared for the French Academy of Sciences in the 1680s, the first map to set standard longitudes for known places based on the observations of the moons of Jupiter. Here the sites where the readings were taken are marked with stars. In the Cassini-Nolin map the corners were left blank; here they have been embellished with designs by Jan Goree, with four large classical figures, including Mercury, cherubs and the signs of the Zodiac. On the map California is an island. See SHIRLEY 579 for Cassini's original.

         A Preface to the B--p of S-r-m's Introduction to the Third Volume of the History of the Reformation of the Church of England. By Gregory Misosarum

      John Morphew, London 1713 - First edition. 56 pp. 8vo. Swift vs. Burnet. First edition of Swift's reply to Gilbert Burnet's Introduction to volume 3 of his History of the Reformation. Burnet painted Popery as the deadliest of evils, and suggested that only Whig bishops, such as himself, could resist it. Swift, having switched to the Tory cause just a few years before, "makes the church his real theme [and] abandons impersonation; and if there are some playful fantasies and much sarcasm among his provisions, they are kept subordinate to the dignity of the main essay. Swift writes with a grave, self-conscious intensity ?" (Ephrenpreis, Swift II, p. 694). Rothschild 2049; Teerink 592 Disbound. In custom gray card folder with title label [Attributes: First Edition]

         A Preface to the B--p of S-r-m's Introduction to the Third Volume of the History of the Reformation of the Church of England. By Gregory Misosarum

      London: John Morphew, 1713. First edition. 56 pp. 8vo. Disbound. In custom gray card folder with title label. First edition. 56 pp. 8vo. Swift vs. Burnet. First edition of Swift's reply to Gilbert Burnet's Introduction to volume 3 of his History of the Reformation. Burnet painted Popery as the deadliest of evils, and suggested that only Whig bishops, such as himself, could resist it. Swift, having switched to the Tory cause just a few years before, "makes the church his real theme [and] abandons impersonation; and if there are some playful fantasies and much sarcasm among his provisions, they are kept subordinate to the dignity of the main essay. Swift writes with a grave, self-conscious intensity ..." (Ephrenpreis, Swift II, p. 694). Rothschild 2049; Teerink 592

      - Comines, Felipe de, Las Memorias de Felipe de Comines, Señor de Argenton, de los hechos y empresas de Luis undécimo y Carlos octavo Reyes de Francia. Traducidas de francés con escolios propios por don Iuan Vitrian, prior y provisor de Catalayud. Tomo Primero y Tomo Segundo. Amberes, por Henrico y Cornelio Verdussen. Año 1713 (en frontispicio y portada del Tomo segundo, 1714 en portada del Tomo primero) Folio. (33 x 21 cms.). Tomo I: 11 hs. (incluidos frontis y portada) + 429 págs. + 11hs. + 11 hojas de grabados de 12 (falta el grabado de Luis XI, rey de Francia). Tomo II: 6 hs. (incluida portada) + 476 págs.+ 14 hs. + 12 hojas de grabados de 14 (faltan los grabados de san Francisco de Paula y Mahomet II, emperador de los turcos). Los dos tomos en un solo volumen. Texto a dos columnas. Encuadernación de época en piel con los planos gofrados y lomo con nervios, tejuelo con título y adornos florales en oro (lomo con restauración en la parte superior e inferior). Ejemplar con buen papel, amplios márgenes y cantos tintados en rojo. Los grabados de retratos en cobre se insertan en orlas calcográficas que ya fueron utilizadas para otras obras de estos impresores antuerpienses, y que incluso se intercambian como se observa en el cotejo de diferentes ejemplares de la misma edición. La lectura iconográfica del hermoso frontispicio calcográfico "Emblema o fachada", lo denomina, se realiza al inicio de la obra destacándose la «perpetuidad del Estado del Príncipe». Segunda edición en castellano de las Memorias de Philippe de Commynes (1445-1509), señor de Argentón, desde el año de 1468 hasta 1498, según reza en la portada, durante la regencia de Luis XI y Carlos VIII de Francia, monarcas a los que sirvió, tras haber sido chambelán del duque de Borgoña, Carlos el Temerario. De origen flamenco, encargado de las relaciones diplomáticas francesas, dedicó los últimos días de su vida a recopilar sus memorias en las que se observan dos partes bien diferenciadas: en un primer momento se centra en los años de 1466 a 1483, durante el gobierno de Luis XI y su rivalidad con el duque de Borgoña, Carlos el Temerario; una segunda parte se dedicará a la Guerra de Italia (1494-1495). Comines sigue de cerca el concepto clásico de la Historia como "magistra vitae", de ahí el valor moral que encuentra en el relato histórico como modelo de comportamiento para príncipes y gobernantes. En este sentido es destacable su compromiso con las fuentes históricas y su contraste, convertido tempranamente en un clásico del pensamiento político y alabado por lo los revisionistas del siglo XIX que le consideraron como un crítico e historiador filosófico por su gran capacidad para plantear y analizar las acciones y los actores de su tiempo. La versión de Juan Vitrian y Pujadas, prior y provisor de Calatayud, asesor del Santo Oficio de la Inquisición de Aragón, publicada primeramente en Amberes en las prensas de Juan Meursio en 1643, surge como un acicate para que los Austrias menores reflexionen sobre los conflictos en Flandes y la necesidad de abandonar dicho estado. En este sentido no se limita a ofrecer una traducción más o menos libre del texto del historiador flamenco, sino que la adorna con numerosas glosas, comentarios y reflexiones personales relacionadas con la política española de su época y sus principales protagonistas. Pocos años antes, su sobrino, fray Felipe de Vitrian de Biemonte, prior y provisor de Calatayud había aprovechado la obra de Comines para sus "Fracmentos de lugares concernientes a los estados de Flandes; de texto y glosa de la historia francesa de Argentón" (Zaragoza, Diego Dormer, 1636). Ambas son muestra de la notoriedad que la obra del historiador flamenco estaba teniendo en Europa, considerado como un manual de príncipes de la tradición francesa bajo medieval con influencia en notables tratados de pensamiento político de la literatura hispánica, como la "República literaria" (1623) y las "Empresas políticas" (1640) de Diego de Saavedra Fajard [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        I. Muscari obsoleto albo flore. II. Muscari floribus, III. Hyacinthus stellaris Bizantinus.

      Nuremburg 1713 - Copper-engraving, with fine hand colour. Dimensions: 535 x 425mm. (21 by 16.75 inches) A magnificent plate from "Hortus Eystettensis", one of the earliest and most famous works in the field. The Hortus Eystettensis is a pictorial record of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time, that of Prince Bishop of Eichstatt, Johann Conrad von Gemmingen. The garden was begun by Joachim Camerarius in 1596 and, after his death in 1598, completed by Basil Besler, a pharmacist from Nuremberg. A visitor, Philipp Hainhofer, in 1611 marvelled at the eight gardens, each containing 'flowers from a different country; they varied in the beds and flowers, especially in the beautiful roses, lilies, tulips.' The Hortus records this variety and beauty. The book is exceptional in every sense; in its variety and range of flowers, in its size, in its fine quality of engraving. It is also one of the earliest records of flowers from a specific, documented garden. Besler was asked to complete the work by Gemmingen in 1606; the huge nature of the task was clear to Besler and he enlisted the help of his younger brother Hieronymus and Ludwig Jungermann, a nephew of Camerarius. Printing the Hortus may have begun as early as 1607. Drawings were made in situ and from specimens sent by the Bishop to Nuremberg; the Bishop reported to Hainhofer that he had boxes of fresh flowers sent every week to Besler at Nuremberg for sketching. A team of at least 10 engravers were employed to translate the drawings to copperplates. The gardens, along with most of the town of Eichstatt, were destroyed by the invading Swedish troops under Herzog Bernhard von Weimar in 1633-4, although they were partially restored by later bishops. Many of the original drawings survive in the University Library, Erlangen.
