        Della Storia Naturale Marina dell'Adriatico. Saggio. Giuntavi una Lettera del Signor Dottore Lionardo Sesler intorno ad un nuovo genere di Piante Terrestri.

      in Venezia, appresso Francesco Storti, 1750. 1750 In-4° (315x225mm), pp. (8), LXXXI, legatura coeva m. pelle marrone e angoli con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso e piatti marmorizzati. Tagli a spruzzo rossi. Vignetta incisa al titolo. In fine, 10 tavv. ripiegate incise su rame raffiguranti piante marine dell'Adriatico. Reintegrazione antica al margine inferiore della tav. VIII. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione, assai rara, della maggiore opera del Donati (Padova, 1717-nel Mar Arabico, presso Mangalore, 1762). "Il libro contiene considerazioni generali sulla biologia marina, osservazioni originali sull'idrografia e la geologia della costa adriatica orientale, nozioni schematiche sul materiale di pesca, le descrizioni di alcuni fossili e, soprattutto, la presentazione dettagliata e ben illustrata di molte specie che vivono in questo mare e con le quali "la natura fa passaggio dalle piante agli animali". L'opera del D. ha influenzato il pensiero biologico europeo per la dimostrazione del carattere sostanzialmente animale della riproduzione e della crescita dei coralli e per la scoperta della fruttificazione del Fucus che portò le prove dell'identità fondamentale degli organi di riproduzione nel vegetali marini e terrestri. Malgrado alcune voci critiche da parte del mondo scientifico francese, il successo di questo libro fu immediato e durevole: A. von Haller ne fece, ad esempio, l'elogio e ne sottolineò l'originalità: "nobile opus ex proprio labore natum" (in Bibl. botanica, Tiguri 1772, II, p. 400). La parte dedicata ai coralli fu tradotta in inglese e pubblicata con il titolo: New discoveries relating to the history of coral nelle Philosophical transactions, XLVII (1751), p. 95. Cat. of British Museum, I, II, p. 472. Nissen, 1137. Stafleu-C., 1500.

        Pianta della Città di Napoli

      La pianta di Napoli realizzata dai francesi Jolivet & Gravier rappresenta il capostipite di una serie di piante della città. Realizzata entro i consueti limiti cartografici canonici di Mergellina e del ponte della Maddalena, sebbene la città si fosse espansa, ha rappresentato un notevole onere nei rilievi topografici. Un lavoro ben superiore ed importante per essere classificato solamente come un mero tentativo di commercializzazione. La pianta comprende ne 136 numeri di leggenda. Il Gravier, era un noto editore francese napoletano di adozione. Pertanto non può sorprendere il fatto che la pianta si diffuse sopratutto nell'ambiente francese della città. Il presente esemplare differisce da quello pubblicato nel Pane & Valerio per il titolo in basso e la mancanza della cornice ornamentale. Il fatto che la legenda in basso sia stampata su un foglio di carta a parte poi applicato nella stampa lascia presupporre che si tratti di uno sttao antecedente della pianta o di una prova di stampa. Incisione in rame, margini aggiunti, in ottimo sttao di conservazione. Rara. Napoli Naples Pane & Valerio La Città di Napoli tra vedutismo e cartografia, p. 237/9, 100. 715 455

        Mappa di Pozzuoli secondo lo stato presente anno 1750

      Editore, incisore e libraio, Paolo Petrini è attivo a Napoli tra il 1692 ed il 1748, realizzando numerose opere grafiche e topografiche, molto spesso derivandole da quelle di Sanson e Nicolas de Fer. La sua produzione è molto vasta e comprende centinaia di carte, molte delle quali ispirate al Mercurio Geografico della tipografia De Rossi di Roma. Gli successe il figlio Nicolò, che tuttavia secondo il Tooley risulta autore di solo questa rara mappa. E? probabile quindi che la mappa sia di Paolo Petrini, edita dal figlio dopo la morte. Incisione in rame, applicata su tela coeva, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Tooley, Dictionary, p. 414. Dimensioni 630x460. Publisher, engraver and book seller, Paolo Petrini worked in Naples between 1692 and 1748, realizing many graphic and topographic works, very often inspired by Sanson and Nicolas de Fer. His production is quite extensive and includes hundreds of maps, many of which drive inspiration form the Mercurio Geografico published in Rome by De Rossi. His son, Nicolò, succeeded the father in the business, though Tooley says he only realized this second map. Very likely, then, it is Paolo Petrini the author, and the son published it after his death. Copper engraving, laid on contemporary canvas, in excellent condition.

        Hortus Nitidissimis omnem per annum superbiens floribus sive amoenissimorum Florum Imagines.... Der das ganze Jahr hindurch im schönsten Flor stehende Blumengarten, oder Abbildungen der lieblichsten Blumen... herausgegeben von Johann Michael Seligmann.

      Nürnberg, Auf Kosten der Seligmännischen Erben/ Ludwig Wirsing, [1750-] 1772-1786. 3 volumes bound in 1. Folio (506 x 343mm). Parallel text in Latin and German. With 155 splendid handcoloured engraved plates on 153 leaves (plates 60/61 and 121/122 combined on one leaf). Contemporary speckled calf, elaborately gilt central device on upper and lower covers within gilt floral frames, outer corners with gilt floral sprays, rebacked spine gilt in compartments to match, some skilful repairs. A beautifully preserved copy of one of the finest German botanical works ever published. It is described by Dunthorne as 'one of the finest records of the cultivated flowers of the period' and by Blunt as 'one of the most decorative florilegia of the mid-eighteenth century. Our copy has plates 1 to 143 and 12 more plates numbered between 147 and 179. Complete copies should have 180 plates. Complete copies however are of the greatest rarity. Only one copy has been offered for sale at auction with 180 plates and the complete text. This was the celebrated De Belder-Mackenzie copy, which was sold by Sotheby's in London 10 May 2001, lot 19 for Pounds 500,000, exclusive of commission. That same copy had been sold by Sotheby's 28 April 1987, lot 362 for Pounds 308,000. Our copy has the text to the first 2 parts, lacking 1leaf. This superbly produced work belongs together with Besler's 'Hortus Eystettensis' to the finest German publications on botany. It is a gallery of the most colourful and ravishing flowers that could be grown in European gardens, including tulips, hyacinths, ranunculi, and roses. On many of the plates, the opacity of the finely applied gouache makes the image appear as a painting rather than an engraved or etched plate. This is especially the case with tulips, which are akin to some of the great studies on vellum executed by botanical artists of the seventeenth century, the golden age of tulipomania. The plates are made by the best artists of the period, such as Georg Dionysius Ehret, the foremost botanical artist of the 'Golden Age of Botanical Art'. Ehret's art combined botanical exactitude with great beauty and design, and his work has never been surpassed. 'The genius of Ehret was the dominant influence in botanical art during the middle years of the eighteenth century' (Blunt). Other artists are Johann Michael Seligmann, Johann Michael Stock, Adam Ludwig Wirsing after Barbara Regina Dietzsch, Johann Christoph Keller and others. "Trew was a Nuremberg physician, anatomist, and botanist who at various times served as dean of the medical school at Nuremberg, as an Imperial Counsellor, and as personal physician to the Emperor. He was made a Palzgraf and served as patron of botanical (and anatomical) illustrators, filling roughly the same position in Germany as that occupied by Sir Hans Sloane in England" (Johnston 429). Trew was Ehret's lifelong friend and patron. After London, Nuremberg was the most important botanical centre of the day. "All in all Trew's versatility as a collector, scholar and Maecenas was outstanding in the Germany of his time. His English contemporaries and colleagues whose collections matched or surpassed his own are remembered to this day, notably Sloane, founder of the British Museum, whereas Trew's name is practically unknown in Germany today "(Calmann, 'Ehret flower painter extraordinary', p. 26). Due to the long period of publication the 'Hortus nitidissimis...' is conspicuously absent from some of the major collections, or else represented only by fragments. The work is considered complete with 180 plates, however 10 more plates were issued of which only a handfull were distributed. The only copy in libraries to have the 190 plates is the copy in the Arnold Arboretum, of Harvard University. Dunthorne 310 (calling for 180 plates on 178 leaves); Great Flower Books, p. 78 (180 plates); Pritzel 9500 180 plates), Stafleu TL2, 15.130 (190 numbered plates on 188 leaves); see also W.J. Tjaden, "Hortus nitidissimis', Taxon, 20 (4) 461-466 & Ludwig, 'Nürnberger naturgeschichtliche Malerei im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert', pp. 151-180.

        Il Malmantile racquistato di Perlone Zipoli colle note di Puccio Lamoni e d'altri.

      Firenze, Francesco Moücke, 1750. 1750 2 voll. in-4° (260x200mm), pp. XXXX, 912 (numerazione continua); legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso e tagli marmorizzati policromi. Bella antiporta allegorica incisa in rame dallo Zuccarelli da disegno del Lippi stesso, frontespizio in rosso e nero, due ritratti di Lorenzo Lippi (uno in età giovanile e uno in età matura) e uno di Paolo Minucci (quest'ultimo inciso in rame e ripiegato f. t.), iniziali e testatine incise in rame. Testatine figurate incise in rame. Dedicatoria del tipografo al patrizio fiorentino Giovanni Altoviti. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione fiorentina del noto poema eroicomico in 12 canti del pittore e letterato Lorenzo Lippi (1606-1664), uscito postumo nel 1676, sotto lo pseudonimo di Perlone Zipoli, con un largo commento apposto da un amico del Lippi, Paolo Minucci (Puccio Lamoni). Precedono il poema alcune dedicatorie e sonetti e la vita del Lippi scritta da Filippo Baldinucci nelle sue "Notizie de' Professori del Disegno". L'edizione contiene foltissime annotazioni in calce del Minucci, di Antommaria Salvini e Antommaria Biscioni. L'opera è imperniata sulla contesa tra Celidora e Bertinella per il reame di Malmantile, castello diroccato presso Signa. L'idea del poema venne all'autore del vecchio castello di Malmantile, a sette miglia da Firenze, ancorché il titolo venne allegoricamente desunto da "vecchie tovaglie da tavola"; esso serba un notevolissimo valore linguistico, in quanto il Lippi raccolse in esso i riboboli circolanti nella lingua viva del popolo fiorentino verso la meta' del 600. Nel poema figurano numerosi personaggi del tempo adombrati sotto nomi fittizi, come Salvator Rosa (Salvo Rosata), che era amico del Lippi, e Carlo Dati (Alticardo). Brunet, V, 1537. Graesse, VII, 516. Gamba, 597: "Molto più ornata, accresciuta e corretta delle antecedenti". Passano, I, 595. Melzi, II, 329.

Matted and ready for framing. From Christoph Trew's magnificent HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS OMNEM PER ANNUM SUPERBIENS FLORIBUS published in three volumes over a 36 year period from 1750-1786.

HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS is considered to be one of the most sumptuous of the florigelia. Being one of the most elusive of the great flower books, the opportunity to own one of these leaves is reserved for only the most discriminating collectors.
