MAGGIALI, Giuseppe
Parma Stamperia di S.A.S. 1717. Folio, (1) f., 115, (1) pp., including frontispiece and 5 large folding plates measuring approximately ; plate I; 89cmx60cm; plate II.:49cmx44cm: plate III:43cmx67cm: plate IV:82cmx60cm; plate V: 82cmx53cm. Bound in original Spanish calf. ‘Pasta Espanola". Very tall copy with large margins. Internally very fresh. Generally excellent. Rare fete book celebrating the nuptials of Philip V of Spain, the Founder of the Bourbon dynasty, and Elizabeth Farnese, at Parma Cathedral in September of 1714. Arranged by the Vatican after the death of Philip's first wife, Maria Louisa of Savoy, the marriage was of considerable political importance, and in due course brought about the transference of the Duchy of Parma from the possession of the Farnese family to that of the Bourbons. As not infrequently happened in such marriages, the groom didn’t show, but was represented by proxy (a high-ranking Cardinal!). The prose account retails the entry of the massive Vatican entourage into Parma, the tour of the Farnese apartments and other possessions and selected local attractions. The elaborate procession to the Cathedral is set out, with remarks on costume and of course the decoration of the cathedral is treated at length. The Farnese court painter Ilario Spolverino (1657-1734) was commissioned to make a series of paintings of the event, from which a number of engravings were made for the work at hand by the Bolognese Francia. The plates include an allegorical frontispiece in which winged figures present an oval portrait of Elizabeth Farnese to the (apparently) s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Defoe,Daniel] Written by Himself [ascribed by the real author, probably Defoe, to Nicholas Mesnager ((1658-1714)]
London: S.Baker at the Black-Boy and Anchor .. 1st edition, 1717. Hardcover. Very Good-. Octavo calf rebacked on 5 raised bands (tips worn) 326pp. There are two variants of D2 - this copy has the catchword DONE on p51. Variable foxing/staining but paper strong and supple, neatly restored with reinserted endpapers. *According to the British Library this is in fact an original English work by Daniel Defoe. "To support the claim that the book was a genuine translation from the French of Nicholas Mesnager, an alternative titlepage was printed (reading) Minutes of the negotiation [sic] of Monsr. Mesnager at the court of England. .. Antwerp, printed for Jean van Borscelen. 1717'.. One title or the other was meant to be cancelled" (Moore). According to others, this is a forgery ascribed to Defoe, intended to influence the trial of his patron, Lord Oxford. Our titlepage does seem to be a cancel as it is stubbed in but this could have been done when the spine was repaired. The work seems to be universally catalogued under Defoe -even by libraries supporting the forgery theory. It is a piece of anti-Jacobite propaganda relating to the negotiations leading up to the Treaty of Utrecht (1713).

He was accompanied by the artist Claude Aubriet and the doctor Gundelsheimer. Pitton de Tournefort traveled extensively in the Archipelago, visiting most of the islands in the Cyclades... He also spent a considerable period in Crete before going to Constantinople and Asia Minor, the coasts of the Black Sea and then overland through Armenia to Persia. The travellers returned to Paris in June 1702.... The text takes the form of letters to M. de Pontchartrain, who sponsored Pitton’s mission. The very fine plates are after Aubriet’s drawings, and illustrate costumes, botanical and zoological specimens, views and maps” (Leonora Navari, in the Blackmer catalogue). An elegant copy.
