First edition of an emblematic, heraldic and genealogical work devoted to mottos of "heros" by the Italian Jesuit Silverstro Pietrasanta (1590-1647), printed and published by Christoffel Plantin's grandson Balthasar Moretus. In Pietrosanto's view one became a "hero" from a favourable combination of ancestry and virtue. The book is divided into nine thematic "libri". The first presents mottos on emblems associated with the Virgin Mary, saints, Popes, Cardinals, noble men and women and scholars; the second mottos on antique coins and medals; the third mottos on rings; the fourth secret mottos, where Pietrosanto analyses their emblems. The other chapters continue with mottos and emblems: their names and meanings, their value and nature, their content, how they are constructed or drawn and their symbolism. The engraved title-page was drawn for the book by Peter Paul Rubens and engraved by Cornelis I Galle.With owner's stamps and bookplates. With occasional minor browning or spots, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding rebacked as noted, and with a few scratches and scuff marks, but otherwise good.

        I Siciliani

      Torino: Einaudi, , 1977. Rilegato tela, sovracoperta (cloth, dust jacket). Molto Buono (Very Good). Testi di Dominique Fernandez e Leonardo Sciascia. Fotografie in bianco e nero di Ferdinando Scianna. 8vo (cm 24x32). pp. XVIII+166. Molto Buono (Very Good). Sovracoperta leggermente sbiadita e screpolata in corrispondenza del dorso (Dj lithgly faded at spine). Prima edizione (First Edition). "Queste fotografie di Scianna che raccontano la Sicilia (la Sicilia com'è per i siciliani, com'è nei siciliani) sono appunto le cristallizzazioni di un lungo processo di conoscenza; e di amore anche, e di odio: perché la Sicilia è sempre, per un siciliano, anche se a diversi livelli di consapevolezza e di equlibrio, come la donna dell'antico poeta: nec sine te, nec tecum vivere possum". E ad accompagnarle, a scrivere un testo che le accompagnasse (non che le spiegasse, poichè ovviamente non hanno bisogno di essere spiegate), mi è parso di non poter fare nulla di meglio che aggiungere altre cristallizzazioni: cristallizzazioni linguistiche, di un lessico particolarissimo, di una particolarissima paremiografia, così come le ritrovo nella memoria, nella "camera oscura" della memoria, e che sono effettualmente gli elementi su cui si fonda una vera conoscenza - e in questo caso la mia conoscenza del paese in cui sono nato, in cui ho passato l'infanzia e la guìiovinezza" (dal testo di Sciascia).

        Carawane nach Mecca. Vienna, Matthias Trentsensky (printed by E. Sieger), ca. 1855. Oblong folio (25 x 40 cm). With 19 (of 24) numbered leaves containing about 135 lithographic pen-drawings, each drawing including a base so that one can cut them out, paste them on card stock, stand them up and arrange them in three-dimensional scenes. Loose leaves in a later paper folder.

      Kleine Welt des Bilderbogens: der Wiener Verlag Trentsensky (1977), 111; Siefert (ed.), Paläste, Panzer, Pop-up-Bücher (2009), with a chapter, “Die Carawane nach Mecca”, pp. 31-38; not in KVK; WorldCat. All but the first five leaves of a very rare lithographic print series issued in parts. Most copies were probably cut up (and perhaps coloured) by children and destroyed in play. The human figures to be cut out include Turkish, Arabic, African and Near Eastern men and women (black and white) in Islamic clothing, some of the men with a variety of firearms, spears, daggers, pipes, prayer rugs, and other gear and goods. There are also camels, horses and donkeys, often with their gear for riding or for carrying loads. The wild animals include wolves, a hyena and an ostrich. Inanimate objects include containers for water, an incense burner, baskets, chests, barrels, camel saddles and much more. The series must have provided many children and adults with their first notion of Islamic society and culture and is rich in authentic details.With an occasional pencil mark. Lacking leaves 1-5, but otherwise in remarkable good condition. The whole is slightly browned and the edges somewhat tattered.

First edition of an emblematic, heraldic and genealogical work devoted to mottos of "heros" by the Italian Jesuit Silverstro Pietrasanta (1590-1647), printed and published by Christoffel Plantin's grandson Balthasar Moretus. In Pietrosanto's view one became a "hero" from a favourable combination of ancestry and virtue. The book is divided into nine thematic "libri". The first presents mottos on emblems associated with the Virgin Mary, saints, Popes, Cardinals, noble men and women and scholars; the second mottos on antique coins and medals; the third mottos on rings; the fourth secret mottos, where Pietrosanto analyses their emblems. The other chapters continue with mottos and emblems: their names and meanings, their value and nature, their content, how they are constructed or drawn and their symbolism. The engraved title-page was drawn for the book by Peter Paul Rubens and engraved by Cornelis I Galle.With owner's stamps and bookplates. With occasional minor browning or spots, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding rebacked as noted, and with a few scratches and scuff marks, but otherwise good. First edition of a Jesuit emblemata, with about 300 illustrations. [Attributes: First Edition]
