Scoprimento del mondo umano di Lucio Agatone: SERAVALU, Angelo

Description du livre : Bonetti, Siena, 1696. Thick quarto, with an engraved frontispiece and full-page portrait of the author; intermittent water-staining, some gatherings a little stained, a few preliminary margins well renewed with old paper (no text loss), a few other small marginal defects but a good sound copy in recent vellum over boards. Rare and enigmatic imaginary voyage filled with metaphysical allusion, long overlooked by scholars and bibliographers of the genre.This mysterious book is the work of the Augustinian priest Angelo Seravalli (1630-1708), who served as abbot of San Jacopo Soprano in Florence, where he was born and died. Aside from a little poetry his literary output is restricted to the present text, where he narrates a journey by himself and a mystical figure known as Lucio Agatone Prisco. In a vast narrative blending the real and the imaginary, Seravalli leads Prisco through the lands, oceans, cities and kingdoms of the world, explaining their nature and formation through human virtues and vices. As a result of the journey, Prisco achieves a spiritual enlightenment of sorts and proposes a vision for future peace on earth.Seravalli's ambitious literary project had little impact on his contemporaries (although it is mentioned in a handful of late seventeenth-century letters, including a correspondence from Italian bibliophile Antonio Magliabechi to the philosopher Leibniz dated 3 April 1696). Howgego notes (in his study of apocryphal voyage narratives published by Hordern House in 2013) 'It has since been largely ignored by scholars in the field of imaginary voyages, and no further discussion was found in the literature. The book is rare, only nine library copies being recorded worldwide.' Nonetheless, it provides modern readers with an engaging baroque allegory that combines real people, cities and events with mythological characters and esoteric lore - and this at a period when the Inquisition was active.'Prisco', the main character of the narrative is derived from an late medieval epitaph inscribed on the 'Pietra di Bologna', a stone plaque famous with alchemists and students of the esoteric arts. A mystical riddle of compounded contradictions, the epitaph has defied interpretation for centuries. In more recent times the 'Pietra di Bologna' was treated in detail by Carl Jung in his study of alchemy and the unconscious. Howgego gives a translation as follows: 'Aelia Laelia Crispis, neither male nor female, nor androgynous nor child, neither young nor old, nor chaste, nor whore, but all this together. Killed not by hunger nor by iron nor by poison, but all these things together. Neither in heaven nor in water, nor in earth, but everywhere he lies. Lucius Agatho Priscius, neither husband nor lover, nor relative, neither sad nor happy, nor crying, not pyramid, nor tomb, but all this together, knows and knows not to whom it is dedicated'.The book includes an ornate engraved frontispiece and a portrait of the author, both by Nicolas Dorigny. Of special interest are the woodcut capitals decorated with scenes of esoteric significance. N° de réf. du libraire 4202826

Description du livre : Ciacone, Roma, 1610. In-folio; pp. (16), 774, (68), l'ultima carta bianca; frontespizio illustrato, siglato CL, con stemma cardinalizio del dedicatario, S. Gregorio, S. Agostino, la Fede e la Religione, e 1 tavola incisa su rame che raffigura l'esaltazione della Croce. Nel testo numerosi legni. Inoltre, testatine, finalini e capilettera incisi su legno.Legatura in piena pergamena. Dorso con rari fori di tarlo.Il Trattato dell Croce di Bosio è una rara quanto interessante opera di carattere storico e iconografico attorno al significato della Croce nella religione cristiana, e in particolare nel mistero della passione, croce e morte di Cristo.L'opera è divisa in sei libri, nei quali il simbolo della croce viene individuato nelle diverse civiltà, presso le quali di volta in volta si ritrova in una diversa maniera e con un diverso significato, così ad esempio presso i greci e i latini, ripercorrendo nel primo libro la storia, basata su varie fonti, della crocifissione e degli altri martiri di Cristo; nel secondo libro la ricerca da adito a curiosi spunti, quando l'autore ritrova il segno della croce in animali, piante e nelle creature di dio; il terzo libro ricerca I passi dell'antico testamento in cui si parla della croce, e il successivo le profezie, gli oracoli e i vaticini inerenti a questa. Il quinto libro è decisamente il più singolare e interessante Nell'ultimo si tratta della passione, morte e resurrezione, del primigenio uso che i cristiani fecero della croce, nella primitiva chiesa e nei secoli successivi.L'apparato iconografico è particolamente variegato ed esaustivo rispetto alla materia trattata: l'iscrizione sulla tavoletta apposta in cima alla croce, i chiodi, le stelle, la figura umana con le braccia allargate, animali meravigliosi come l'unicorno e una strana tartaruga, i fiori della passione, la postura delle mani per la benedizione, monete e medaglie, la Fortuna, la croce raffigurata nel mosaico di San Clemente e San Giovanni a Roma, ecc. Soprattutto è molto ricca di immagini la sezione che riguarda l'Egitto, con riproduzioni di geroglifici e pitture di opere evidentemente giunte in Italia, e che l'autore potè studiare e far ritrarre.Copioso l'indice degli argomenti trattati.croce cross cavalieri di malta religione cristiana passione cristo crocifissione christ crucifixion egitto egypt egyptian art hieroglyphic geroglifici.

Description du livre : Sermartelli, Firenze, 1604. Ediz. orig. In-4°; pp. 7, (1), al frontespizio un legno raffigura la cupola di Santa Maria del Fiore a Firenze; un capolettera inciso su legno, alcune note manoscritte.Legatura in cartonato colorato. L'opera è dedicata a Filippo Valori, l'ambasciatore fiorentino del papa.Edizione originale, assai rara.L'opuscolo di Franscesco Bocchi prende spunto dall'episodio di un fulmine abbattutosi sulla cupola di Santa Maria del Fiore a Firenze, per indirizzare il suo racconto sul tema del restauro di quello che era considerato il manufatto simbolo della città. Sebbene pubblicato solo nel 1604 la lettera è datata in calce Firenze Febbraio 1600, subito dopo che la lanterna era stata danneggiata. Il restauro di quella fu affidato a Gherardo Mechini, che lo completò in un tempo assai breve; utilizzò un complesso sistema di ponteggi e dispositivi di sollevamento.In un contesto di generale esaltazione della storia dell'arte fiorentina, in queste pagine si leggono parole di estrema lode per la bellezza e lo splendore della cupola e della lanterna, un'opera di altissimo ingegno la cui maestà suscita in chi la guarda "primo laetitia, deinde, cum appropinquant, admiratio, postremo stupor". L'esaltazione si estende ovviamente all'artefice, Filippo Brunelleschi, che, si dice, esprime la razionalità nell'arte attraverso l'esempio degli antichi. A sostegno di una teoria che esalta le origini del rinascimento fiorentino, Bocchi sembra chiamare in causa anche Michelangelo Buonarroti "iure optimo" che, accingendosi alla costruzione della cupola del Sacrario Laurenziano, afferma, rispondendo a chi glielo chiedeva, che nessun architetto aveva fatto di meglio dopo l'artificio di Filippo.Francesco Bocchi (1548-1618) fu un erudito italiano che, soggiornando a Firenze, scrisse una guida delle bellezze della città di Firenze, e fu autore anche di un'opera sulla musica e di una sulla statua di San Giorgio di Donatello. (Vedi voce in DBI).Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446), architetto, ingegnere escultore fiorentino, attende ai lavori della cupola del Duomo di Firenze a partire dal 1418 e fino alla sua morte, al principio offrendo la sua consulenza per risolvere la soluzione della costruzione della cupola assieme al Ghiberti e a Battista d'Antonio, in qualità di "provveditore alla costruzione della cupola". La cupola presentava un tamburo ottagono che insisteva su una struttura gotica, il cui sistema di forze Brunelleschi volle coordinare e risolvere, attraverso la cupola, nella lanterna che la chiude.

There are clear typographical differences between the second part and the other two parts of this pamphlet. Taken the contents, it is quite obvious that they belong together, however, as the second part (pp. 57-76) deals only with Mr. Scott and Mr. Scroop while their speeches and prayers are not repeated, partly or in whole, in the other two parts, we are unable to conclude whether we are dealing here with the same pamphlet in another variant or with a quite different pamphlet.

Description du livre : Firenze, 1645. Incisione in rame, mm 475x750. La carta raffigura tutta la costa del sud Africa; tratta da "Dell'Arcano del Mare" di Robert Dudley (1574-1649), che rappresenta il primo atlante marittimo del mondo intero stampato da un inglese e ad usare la proiezione di Mercatore e la declinazione magnetica. Le mappe sono tutte originali, caratterizzate dalla particolare decorazione barocca di Lucini. Dudley lasciò l'Inghilterra nel 1605 e si trasferì al servizio di Cosimo II, Gran Duca di Toscana come ingegnere e comandante navale. Nel 1646, dopo 12 anni di fatica, pubblicò l'atlante. Lucini, l'incisore nacque a Firenze, fu allievo di Callot e amico di Della Bella. A lui si deve la finezza incisoria e la bellezza del testo inciso "alla Cancelleresca". Robert Dudley's "Arcano del mare" is "one of the greatest atlases of the world and one of the most complex ever produced: it is the first sea-atlas of the whole world; the first with all the charts constructed using Mercator's new projection, as corrected by Edward Wright; the first to give magnetic declination; the first to give prevailing winds and currents. the first to expound the advantages of "Great Circle Sailing"; and the first sea-atlas to be compiled by an Englishman." (Lord Wardington). Ottimo esemplare. € 3000. Copper engraving, mm 475x750. The map shows south Africa coasts. From "Dell'Arcano del mare", the first english nautical atlas and the first maritime atlas to use the mercator projection first edition. Robert Dudley's "Arcano del mare" is "one of the greatest atlases of the world and one of the most complex ever produced: it is the first sea-atlas of the whole world; the first with all the charts constructed using Mercator's new projection, as corrected by Edward Wright; the first to give magnetic declination; the first to give prevailing winds and currents. the first to expound the advantages of "Great Circle Sailing"; and the first sea-atlas to be compiled by an Englishman." (Lord Wardington). Dudley left England in 1605. Arriving in Florence, Dudley entered the service of the Cosimo II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, as an engineer and naval commander. In 1646, Dudley published "Arcano del mare", the whole written in Italian by Dudley himself. The atlas was twelve years in the making, and the main innovation lay in its conception of a world atlas of charts, both general ocean charts and detailed surveys, covering all the rival spheres of European dominion: Spanish, English and Dutch. Dudley's sources included the original charts of Henry Hudson, and for the Pacific coast he used the observations of Henry Cavendish, the third circumnavigator of the globe and Dudley's brother-in-law. Antonio Francesco Lucini, the engraver, was born in Florence c. 1610. He was a pupil of Callot and a friend of Stefano della Bella. Before being employed by Sir Robert Dudley, he had already published engraved views of Florence and scenes of the Turkish Wars. Lucini put the stamp of his personality on the finished work as well as did the author; the delicacy and strength of the engraving, the embellishments of the lettering "alla cancellaresca", make it a true example of Italian Baroque art. In a printed introductory leaf found in one copy in the British Library, Lucini states that he worked on the plates in seclusion for twelve years in an obscure Tuscan village, using up to no less than 5,000 lbs (2,268 kg) of copper. According to the engraver, the Arcano del Mare took forty years to prepare and twelve to execute. (Sotheby's Catalogue, Wardington Sale, 2005)The chart is embellished with a finely engraved ship and fine compass rose, and has the lush calligraphy of the engraver, Lucini.

Les deux hommes, liés par la passion de l'archéologie, se succédèrent à la charge de commissaire aux antiquités de Rome. Pour Bellori, qui ordonnance et légende chacune des planches, il s'agit non seulement de pérenniser la représentation de vestiges en péril, mais aussi de fixer les traits du "beau idéal" à l'antique dont il s'est fait le théoricien et qui triomphera un siècle plus tard dans toute l'Europe avec le néo-classicisme.Exemplaire à toutes marges (355 x 480 mm), en parfait état de conservation, à l'exception d'une mouillure en bordure des deux dernières planches, sans atteinte aux gravures.

With woodcut of King David playing his harp on title,  fine engraved frontispiece with open music book under  the title in centre, and King David playing his harp and  Horace playing his lyre on a pedestal at either side, with a white swan above and publisher's address below. (4), 184, (2) pp. Very rare Dutch songbook and an important contribution to Dutch poetic art, with all songs strictly based on classical  metrics, and without rhyme. In his dedication to the States of Gelre and Zutphen the author presents his work as the new  and perfect form for all Dutch poetry, and a model for future  poets. In the preface, which in fact gives an extensive comparative  study of prosody, the poet's method is explained to the reader,  and most of the poems are accompanied by metrical signs. Conrad  Goddaeus was Minister of the Church at Vaassen from 1634 to  his death in 1658. He was a valued friend of Pieter Cornelisz.  Hooft, and in the present songbook Goddaeus also transposed  Hooft's Granida into the "correct metre", under the title  "Rei van Jofferen".

Dos bruni et tâches sur les plats. Une mouillure claire marge inférieure sans atteinte au texte sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage. Giuseppe Viola Zanini (1575-1631), né à Vincence et mort à Padoue, fut un peintre et un architecte qui travailla dans les environs de Venise. Il fut davantage un peintre de décor, renommé pour tel, qu'un architecte actif, l'architecture l'intéressant comme moyen d'expression du décor peint. L'ouvrage est divisé en deux parties, la première partie s'intéressant aux origines de l'architecture et aux éléments qui la composent, ainsi que de la façon dont on doit construire, le second livre est lui entièrement dévolu aux cinq ordres.

A clear wetting lower margin not involving the text throughout the book. Giuseppe Viola Zanini (1575-1631), born in Vicenza and Padua death, was a painter and architect who worked in nearby Venice.

The book is divided into two parts, the first part focusing on the origins of architecture and its components, as well as how you should build the second book is entirely devoted to him five orders. This book was also widely studied in Italy, and in particular by Blondel in France. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Description du livre : Paris, Nicolas Langlois 1691., 1691. A bibliographically significant copy of an early issue of the first edition of the well-known Cours d?Architecture by the French architect Augustin Charles d?Aviler (1653-1700). D?Aviler had been one of the first students of the Acadèmie Royale d?Architecture sent to study in Rome (which he only reached after two years in prison in Tunis, his ship being captured by pirates on his journey out), and he had subsequently worked in the office of the royal architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart before entering independent architectural practice. In the 1680s he had begun a commentary on Vignola, and had produced a French-language edition of Book VI of Scamozzi, and his primary intention in the compilation of what was to become the Cours d?Architecture was to provide French readers with an intelligible explanation of Vignola?s teachings on the orders of architecture, accompanied by illustrations of some of the most notable of the buildings designed by Vignola and by Michelangelo. To these he added a specimen design for a large town house of his own invention, and an interesting illustrated discussion of the various architectural components of the interior of a typical town house of the period. He also decided to append a dictionary of the terms used in architecture and in the building trade, which forms the second volume of the Cours as published. The result was to provide a comprehensive architectural textbook that was valued both by architects and by educated readers, and was to be reissued in numerous editions between the 1690s and the 1760s.It has however been observed, most recently by the compilers of the British Architectural Library?s Catalogue of Early Printed Books, that changes were made in the make-up of the book?s first edition at a late stage in the printing process, and the evidence of the present copy, taken together with that of an incomplete copy of an early issue of the first volume which is also in our possession, reveals that the general Cours d?Architecture title leaf must have been printed as an afterthought, and that the original plan had been to divide what was ultimately the first volume into two parts with separate title leaves, the break coming after p.244. The original intended printed title leaf for the first part, which survives in our incomplete copy of vol.1, and was also present in the now lost Berlin copy (Berlin Cat 2388), reads thus: ?L?Architecture de Vignole, qui comprend ses ordres, avec des commentaires, les figures & descriptions de ses plus beaux bâtimens, & de ceux de Michel-Ange, plusieurs nouveaux desseins, ornemens & préceptes concernant l?art de bâtir ; et une explication de tous ces termes. Par le Sieur A.C.Daviler architecte. Premiere partie? No scholar seems however to have discovered until now a surviving copy of the original intended printed title leaf for the second part, and it is a fortunate chance that the binder of the copy that we catalogue here, not having the general Cours d?Architecture title leaf available to him (presumably because it had not yet been printed), used the intended title leaf for the second part as a title leaf for the first volume as a whole. It reads thus : ?Second partie du Cours d?Architecture qui contient les figures et descriptions des plus beaux bâtimens de Vignole et de Michel-Ange, plusieurs nouveaux desseins, ornemens, & préceptes concernant la distribution, la matiere & la construction des edifices . & tout ce qui regarde l?art de bâtir ; avec une ample explication de tous les termes par ordre alphabetique? As both of these intended title leaves carry Langlois?s imprint and the publication date 1691 at their foot, it is clear that at the time that they were printed it was these title leaves that were intended to be the title leaves of the published book. One must conclude that the general Cours d?Architecture title leaf was only produced after a decision had been taken that the ?Explication des Termes d?Architecture? would be too lengthy to be bound up.

Der Haupttitel findet sich wie in Vergleichsexemplaren nur in Bd. 1 (zusätzlich zum Bandtitel). - Äußerst seltene erste Ausgabe eines Hauptwerkes der mystisch-theosophischen Literatur des 17. Jahrhunderts. Der von Boehme und anderen Mystikern beeinflusste aber ungeachtet enger kontakte zu Pordage und seinem Kreis nicht den Boehmisten zugehörige Poiret gab u.a. zahlreiche Werke der Madame Guyon heraus und schloss sich schon früh der Schwärmerin Antoinette Bourignon an, die sogar aus den liberalen Niederlanden fliehen musste. "Durch das Erscheinen seines großen Werkes "Der göttliche Haushalt" 1687 wird er weiteren Kreisen als mystischer Schriftsteller bekannt und zieht sich weitere Angriffe zu ., da er hierin die Lehren der Borignon systematisch zu gestalten sucht und zwar mit Hilfe Descartes` Begriffswelt, Boehems Spekulationen und der Fülle mystischer Anregungen, die er sonst empfangen hat. . Er bestätigt die . kompilatorische Art seiner Tätigkeit dadurch, dass darin alle Arten von Mystik, naturphilosophische, theosophische, chiliastische, eschatologische, ja schon Elemente der romanischen Mystik und des Cartesianismus ihre Orgien feiern. Wer wollte in diesem schweren philosophisch-theologischen Gewande bei aller psychologischen und scholastischen Spitzfindigkeit nicht bereits voll und ganz den Geist der Aufklärung spüren ."

Reliure du XVIIIe s., mors sup. fendillé, coiffe sup. absente. Agréable exemplaire. Frontispice h.-t. gravé en taille-douce, premier feuillet de dédicace orné des armoiries du dédicataire gravées en taille-douce, 156 planches gravées en taille-douce sur 80 ff. h.-t. et 1 f. repl., (8) ff., 168 pp., (4) ff., pp. 169 à 176, puis pp. chiffrées 193 à 312, (4) ff., pp. 321 à 342, (1) f. (avec la démonstration de la 156ème planche gravée en taille-douce au v°). Les planches 151 et 156 sont présentes deux fois. Quelques rares rousseurs, petit manque de papier en tête du dernier feuillet des pièces liminaires avec perte de qq. caractères, petite perforation à une planche. Sans le portrait de Michel Larcher, le dédicataire. Edition originale de ce traité fondamental dans l'histoire des mathématiques et de la perspective en particulier, très largement inspiré des théories de Desargues (1591-1661), le fondateur de la géométrie projective dont Bosse était l'ami et le disciple depuis plusieurs années. Dans ce livre, l'objectif d'Abraham Bosse est essentiellement pédagogique : il s'adresse surtout aux praticiens qu'ils soient ou non versés dans la géométrie : d'où une progression méthodique tout au long de l'ouvrage vers des solutions de plus en plus complexes présentées chaque fois suivant plusieurs méthodes impliquant plus ou moins de théorie. Il y établit l'identité des deux méthodes principales (géométrale et perspective). L'ouvrage est divisé en trois parties : la première traite de "la règle de la pratique de la perspective pour le trait des figures, d'assiette, d'élévation, de profil et d'ombre ou d'ombrage". La deuxième aborde "la règle de la pratique de la perspective pour les places et proportions des fortes et foibles touches, teintes et couleurs". Enfin la troisième, probablement rédigée par Desargues lui-même ou sous sa dictée, recueille plusieurs compléments théoriques et pratiques et la reproduction du traité de perspective de Desargues publié en 1636. L'ouvrage est illustré de très belles planches, d'une grande finesse de trait et d'un grand raffinement esthétique, toutes gravées et dessinées par Abraham Bosse. Exemplaire de dédicace, aux armes de Michel Larcher marquis d'Ary (1714-1772) descendant du dédicataire de l'ouvrage en 1648, Michel Larcher, conseiller du roi et président de la chambre des comptes de Paris dont les armes sont gravées en tête de la dédicace.

Description du livre : Antoine Cellier, Lyon, 1678. Contemporary Full Calf. État : Very Good. [22], 405 pp / 417 pp, [13] / 226 pp, French text with some Greek, engraved frontispiece portrait of Spon + 32 plates, mostly folding, half-titles, title vignettes, binding slightly rubbed, marbled endpapers in volumes I and II only, vol. III has white endpapers, title gilt on raised decorated spine, title on red label, speckled outer edges, small tear to one plate in volume 1, previous owner’s inscription on title page of volume III, Bookplate of Gaspard De Clermont verso front cover of volume II, occasional spotting, otherwise set well preserved. This is one of the most important accounts of travels in the Levant, and the first description of Athens which was systematic, detailed, and trustworthy. as Laborde says, "la publication du voyage de Spon fut un evenement litteraire". Chateaubriand praised the work: "tout le monde connait le merite de cet ouvrage, ou l’art et l’antiquite sont traites avec une critique jusqu’alors ignoree". Spon and Wheler met in Italy in 1675; they travelled together with Francis Vernon to Zakynthos, where the two groups separated. Spon and Wheler continued by sea to Constantinople, and Vernon travelled overland. The great merit of Spon’s work is due to its combination of a careful and knowledgeable interest in classical antiquity with an accurate observation of men, manners and topography in Modern Greece. The whole of volume II is devoted to Greece and includes a glossary of modern Greek words and phrases with instructions on pronunciation. Spon’s interest in Greece was long standing. He had already published Babin’s description of Athen’s, which had been communicated to him by the Abbe Pecoil of Lyon, with his own notes and preface. Blackmer 1586; Weber 406; Laborde II, pp 1-27.

Description du livre : Printed for the author ; and are to be sold by H. Robinson, A. Cr. L. Fawn, London, 1656. Hardcover. État : Very Good. 7 x 4.5 inches. 18 x 11.5 cm. A bi-lingual edition. Hebrew with English transliteration. The Hebrew is vocalized (has the point or vowels). Robertson, William. pp. [viii], 250, 22, [ii]. Trace foxed, slight loss in corner of last page, not affecting text. Modern full calf, gilt extra. 8vo. The author, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, was the leading Hebrew tutor in Cromwellian London, when learning Hebrew was all the rage. In spite of the grammatical error in the title, the book matches the Hebrew text of Psalms and Lamentations with an accurate Romanization, according to standard Sephardic pronunciation. Of special interest here is the author's six-page Epistle Dedicatory to his patron, John Sadler, constitutional lawyer, Member of Parliament, and Oliver Cromwell's private secretary and confidante. Sadler, John Harvard's brother-in-law, was one of the leading ideologues of the philo-Semitic Israelite-identifying party among the English Puritans. Robertson's career faded away after the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, but finally, in 1680 he was appointed as a Hebrew instructor at Cambridge. SCANS available upon request.

Description du livre : Madrid, Melchor Alegre, 1673. 1673, 1673. 1 vol. in-8° (209 x 159 mm.) de : [2] ff. (Titre, Approbation), 276 pp. Nombreux ornements typographiques. Quelques erreurs de pagination sans incidence sur le texte. Plein vélin d'époque, dos titré à l'encre brune, fermoirs en parchemin. (Nombreux feuillets uniformément roussis, mouillures, et petites taches, petits défauts de papier. Rares annotations manuscrites à l'encre brune). Première édition collective des trois œuvres principales d'Antonio Guevara (c. 1481–1545): 'Menosprecio de corte' ('Le mépris de la cour'), 'Aviso de privados' ('Moyen de parvenir', traduit par 'Réveille-matin des courtisans') et 'Arte del marear y trabajos de la galera' ('Traité des travaux et privilèges des galères et de l'art de naviguer'). Franciscain, "plume" de Charles-Quint, fortement influencé par le stoïcisme, Érasme et l'utopisme de Thomas More, Antonio Guevara est le théoricien d'une vision originale de l'empire hispanique. Il développe sa vision pacifiste et messianique de l'impérialisme et médite sur la place de l'homme dans son milieu. Il prend ainsi la défense des Indiens proche de "l'âge d'or" par opposition au mode de vie occidental, particulièrement celui des villes et de la Cour, mondain et corrupteur. Le dernier livre, "Arte de marear", constitue un traité documenté sur les techniques espagnoles de navigation et une importante source pour l’histoire des connaissances maritimes en Europe au XVIe siècle. 1 vol. 8vo. Numerous woodcat ornaments. Contemporary full vellum. First collective edition of the three main works by Antonio Guevara (C. 1481-1545). Franciscan, Charles Quint's writter, deeply influenced by Thomas More, Guevara is the theoretician of an original vision of the Hispanic Empire. The last book, "Arte del Marear" is a documented treatise on Spanish naval technology and an important source for the European maritime sciences in the 16th century. N° de réf. du libraire 2518

Della Celeste Fisionomia Libri Sei 4 Parts in 1, as issued, each with separate title, all 4 works listed on general half-title. 4to. ff. [9], 222; pp. 64; pp. 40; pp. 6 p.l., 147. numerous woodcuts in the text of the first & fourth works (incl. 3 full-page portraits). large engraved device on titles. woodcut ornaments & initials. contemporary vellum (binding loose, some chipping to spine & upper edge of front cover, some light marginal dampstaining). First published in 1586, Porta’s famous treatise was one of the earliest major texts specifically devoted to physiognomy, the art of determining character or personal characteristics from the form or features of the body. The numerous woodcut text illustrations draw comparisons between the physical features of men and animals in an attempt to relate their nature. These comparisons still persist in our vocabulary in adjectives such as bovine, ovine, lupine, aquiline, assinine, porcine, &c. Bound herewith, as issued, are Italian editions of Giovanni Ingegeri’s treatise on physiognomy, another work on the same subject by Polemon or Polemo, a Greek writer who is supposed to have lived between 100 and 250 A.D., and Porta’s work on celestial physiognomy, in which he proposes to refute astrology and prove instead that what the astrologers state as the effects of the planets, signs, and constellations are rather to be attributed to the qualities, features, and other peculiarities of the human body.

Description du livre : In Roma:, 1691. hardcover. 1 FIRST EDITION of this distinguished study of the ancient sepulchral lamps discovered in the tombs and caves of Rome. These lamps are shown in intricately-engraved plates; the plates were designed and engraved by Bartoli, with explanatory notes by Gio Pietro Bellori. Subsequent editions were published in Berlin in 1702 and Rome in 1704, but this first edition contains 12 plates not found in the later editions. Bellori was a prominent biographer of the Italian Baroque artists of the seventeenth century. As an art historian, he was the Baroque equivalent of Giorgio Vasari. "Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1696), an eminent Italian archaeologist, was born at Rome in 1613. From his youth Bellori devoted himself to the study of art and antiquity, in which he was encouraged, and at the outset greatly assisted, by his uncle, Francesco Angeloni, secretary to Cardinal Aldobrandini, himself a good antiquary, and author of an account of the coins of the Roman Emperors, and of the Historia di Terni. Bellori wrote many works of great use in their day and which are still often referred to with advantage. Several of Bellori’s works were posthumous; among them may be noticed- Le Antiche Lucerne Sepolcrali." [The English Cylopaedia, p. 206]. BL Italian, 17th c., p. 820; BM Readex Vol. 22, p. 617; Brunet I, p.759; Graesse p. 330. 4to.

Description du livre : Presso Gio. Battista Ferroni, Bologna, 1664. Hardcover. First Edition. Small 4to. Collation: *4 A-X4 Y6 [Z]2, COMPLETE. [8], 172, [12] pp. With 4 folding copper-engraved plates and numerous woodcut diagrams illustrating the text. Well bound in sturdy 20th-century Italian quarter vellum over mottled boards, smooth spine lettered in black. Outer margins of title and two subsequent leaves reinforced. One leaf with a small loss of text and some rubbing. Some very light occasional dampstaining. Closely cropped in several instances with slight loss to Fig. 12 and 16 at end. An important work which describes the construction and use of the sector, or proportional compass, variously described by Galileo as his "geometrical and military compass." It is justly considered to be the first truly "modern" calculating instrument which offered an extraordinary range of applications and remained in constant use for over two hundred years. The device was immediately embraced by practitioners of a number of disciplines, most notably architects (some of whom may have struggled to perform even elementary arithmetical operations). It is a remarkable fact that the disciplines to which the sector was applied, particularly architecture, fortification, and surveying (traditionally classed as mechanical sciences), soon emerged as mathematical sciences in the seventeenth century. Indeed there is evidence that the universality of these practical applications helped to make possible the universality of science at a theoretical level. Hence this technology was not simply a consequence of advances in science. Rather, the technology helped make possible the mathematical sciences that led to modern science. The sector was originally invented by Galileo for calculations in surveying, geometry, gunnery, dialing, gauging, engineering, mathematical operations, and even accounting. It is no exaggeration the invention of the sector heralded the scientific revolution of the Baroque era. Throughout the 17th century, and well into the 18th, the sector underwent considerable improvement. To aid the architect, Ottavio Revesi Bruti developed a particular type of proportional compass, the "archisesto," which had proportional lines for drawing the architectural orders (see his "Archisesto per formar con facilità li cinque ordini d’architettura," Vicenza, 1627). During the 19th century the proportional compass was gradually replaced by highly refined slide rules which survived over the years in the technical studios of engineers and architects up until the recent advent of the computer. At the time of Casati's publication of the "Fabrica et uso del compasso di proportione," Galileo's own instructional manual had become almost unfindable, in Italy or elsewhere (as is attested in Casati's preface), while demand for information about the sector increased exponentially. Casati was Jesuit polymath who published erudite works on optics, physics, and mathematics. In the present well-illustrated volume he presents, through a series of practical demonstrations, as much information as was then known about the sector and its applications in multiple fields of inquiry. Very curious contemporary inscription on title page: "Da mihi in disco caput Giovannis Battiste" (Matt. 14:8 -- Bring me the head of St. John the Baptist on a plate). Cinti 156. Ricccardi I, 271 ("Raro"). Sommervogel VI, 78. Very good antiquarian condition. N° de réf. du libraire 1044
