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 : Robert Ballard, Paris, 1662. First Edition. Malkin 9.1. Magriel p. 139. Slin p. 296. Not in Derra de Moroda.L'Hercule Amoreux, a ballet with music by Lully, marked the occasion of the marriage of Louis XIV to Maria Theresa of Spain; it was first performed in Paris at the Tuileries on February 7, 1662."This opera-ballet. was doubtless the most brilliant of all the festivities organized in honor of the king's marriage. The performance, before an immense crowd which filled the new theatre to capacity, lasted for six hours. But the magnificence of the new theatre, the extraordinary boldness of the machines and decorations, the numerous and sudden changes of scenes, and the sumptuousness of the costumes kept the audience in a constant state of excitement. They paid very little attention to the opera itself, but the ballet entries, particularly the one in which the king and queen danced together, surrounded by the most illustrious representatives of the nobility, threw them into ecstasy. The complete spectacle is a very happy fusion of two genres producing what we may call a 'court-opera- ballet' in which the subjects of the ballet entries are closely related to the subject of the opera. The work is the result of the collaboration of at least six people: Camille Lillius wrote the Prologue, Buti wrote the libretto, Cavalli composed the music of the opera, Benserade devised the ballet entries and wrote the Vers, Lully composed the music of the ballet entries, and Gaspare Vigarani invented the machines." Silin: Benserade and his Ballets de Cour, p. 301.Ercole amante ("Hercules in Love"), an opera in a prologue and five acts by Francesco Cavalli to a libretto by Francesco Buti after Ovid’s Metamorphoses, was commissioned by Cardinal Mazarin to mark the occasion of the wedding of Louis XIV to Maria Theresa of Spain. Cavalli (1602-1676) "was the most performed, and perhaps the most representative, composer of opera in the quarter-century after Monteverdi and was a leading figure, as both composer and performer, in Venetian musical life." Thomas Walker in Grove onlineA French poet, librettist and playwright, "[Benserade's] art of telling the truth about society people with elegance and dexterity was not only appreciated by the salons and developed in all the current poetic genres – epigrams, madrigals, rondeaux, enigmas, portraits and epitaphs – but was peculiarly suited to the court ballet. Benserade's popularity coincided with Louis XIV's career as a dancer of some talent, and between 1651 and 1669, when the king retired from the stage, Benserade wrote verses for 23 royal ballets." Margaret M. McGowan in Grove online Small quarto. Full polished mid-tan calf with decorative spine in compartments gilt, dark red leather title label gilt, boards with gilt- ruled edges with decorative bird-like motif at corners, inner dentelles gilt. 1f. (title with woodcut device), pp. 3-7 (prologue), 51[!52] pp. With named cast lists for each of 18 entrées for Cavalli's Ercole amante. With fine woodcut headpiece and large decorative woodcut initial to prologue; occasional decorative initials and woodcut head- and tailpieces throughout.

Description du livre : Paris, Jean Baptiste Coignard 1676., 1676. First edition (three further editions, essentially unchanged in content, appeared in the 1690s). Félibien, who then held official appointments as Secretary of the Académie Royale d?Architecture and historiographer of the Bâtimens du Roi, intended this as an introduction to the principles, techniques and vocabulary of the fine and applied arts, and he arranges his material into three separate sections dealing respectively with architecture, sculpture and painting. followed by a dictionary of terms. The first 296 pages are devoted to architecture, as are the first 46 of the engraved illustrations (which are an unexpectedly good source of information on the tools employed in the French building trade). The architecture section and the listing of architectural terms in the accompanying dictionary are of particular authority, for Félibien records in his preface that before publishing his book he had read the whole of it to meetings of the Académie Royale d?Architecture ; the Académie?s published proceedings show that these readings took place between September 1674 and February 1676, and during this period Félibien was able to revise his text in the light of advice and criticism from the Académie?s small but select membership (including at this time François Blondel, Libéral Bruand, François d?Orbay and Antoine Le Pautre).Although the present copy is intermittently stained internally, and is in a binding which although in red morocco is today somewhat worn, it is of some importance as a surviving book from the library of Frederik Walter (1649-1718), Master of Ceremonies at the court of King Frederik IV of Denmark. In our catalogue 42, item 29, we listed and illustrated a copy of Vincenzo Cartari?s Le Imagine de i Dei de gli Antichi, 1587, in a handsome red morocco binding identical in character to the present one except that the corner ornaments at each corner of the inner panels on the covers were from a different tool, but we were not then able to identify either the country where the binding was produced or the book collector for whom the binding was done. As we have now discovered, books bound for Frederik Walter, distinguishable by the presence of his device of a winged cupid in the centre of their upper and lower covers, and by the fact that they are usually bound in red morocco, are much sought after, both on account of the nature of the binding s themselves and because they form one of the few groups of books securely identifiable as having been bound for a private Danish book collector active around 1700. Our previous book from Walter?s library, that by Cartari, survived as part of the library formed by Lord Polwarth (afterwards 2nd Earl of Marchmont), who served as British Ambassador to Denmark between 1715 and 1721, while the present one has evidently passed through the hands of various subsequent Danish book collectors, commencing with an individual named P. Hagen who had his own name added in gilt letters above Walter?s Cupid device. BAL Cat. 1036 ; Fowler Cat 118. 4to. (22) + (795) + (1) pp, including 65 full-page engraved illustrations in text. Early eighteenth century gilt-panelled full red morocco, gilt spine, all edges gilt, with Cupid device of the contemporary Danish book collector Frederik Walter (1649-1718) in centre of upper and lower covers, and later gilt -stamped ownership inscription of P.Hagen on upper cover. Sides of binding rather worn, and scratch marks across areas of upper cover. Old dampstains affecting first eight pages and eleven subsequent signatures (pp 11-40, 129-144, 265-280, 305-312, 337-344, 353-376), in addition to stains on a few individual leaves elsewhere in the earlier part of the volume. Three later signatures (pp 569-576, 617-632) slightly browned owing to nature of paper stock. Initial letter W in ink at lower right hand corner of title leaf, confirming the fact that the copy belonged to Frederik Walter. Late eighteenth century or early nineteenth century ink ownership inscriptions. N° de réf. du libraire 07852

FIRST EDITION. 168 x 95 mm (6 5/8 x 3 3/4"). 16 p.l., 225, [1] pp., plus 13 pp. of ads at the back (also with two loose leaves from the end of Boyle's "Short Memoirs for the Natural Experimental History of Mineral Waters" [published 1684] laid in at front, and five leaves of ads from that work bound in before A1 here.). FIRST EDITION. Pleasing recent retrospective unlettered dark polished calf, raised bands. Rear flyleaf with seven lines of handwritten notes in red or purple ink. Fulton 166; Heirs of Hippocrates 366; Norman 306; Osler 949; Waller 1391; Wellcome II, 224; Wing B-4013. Frequent faint browning, occasional minor foxing, isolated corner creases, one tiny round wormhole in bottom margin, but still an excellent copy (especially for a cheaply made book like this), the text quite clean and fresh, and the binding unworn. These two treatises represent the efforts of the foremost scientist of the day to inject some theoretical science into what was then the practical art of medicine. The first treatise sets forth six propositions, with accompanying experiments" that describe Boyle's theories about the effects of certain medicines on the body. The second part is a plea for physicians to stop prescribing extremely complicated concoctions (some containing 20 ingredients) to treat their patients. However, Boyle does endorse the medieval belief in the healing powers of gems and stones from the heads of snakes. The youngest of the 14 children of the earl of Cork, Robert Boyle (1627-91) in 1660 published "New Experiments Physico-Mechanical," which became a milestone in the history of science. He was one of the founders of the Royal Society and a most active member throughout his life. Locke, Newton, and Evelyn were among his friends and correspondents. N° de réf. du libraire CJM1201

This era of the Badier Atelier is described in great detail by De Conihout / Ract-Madoux, Musee Conde, for which see the tooling on No. 17 (note identical positioning of the four inlocking tools in the 2nd and 4th horizontal compartments), No. 21 and No. 25. The elegant decoration on this binding is known as a "Reliure a decor de fanfare vide" in which the central medalion is open. A virtually identical binding appeared in the second sale of the Bibliotheque Claude L. on a 1654 Paris John Climacus (sold 29 April 2007, lot 107). * Badier (fl. 1645-1660) was a Parisian binder who apprenticed to Jean Thomas in 1630, and became Master in 1645. His name is associated with the art of pointille tooling of the art of bookbinding in 17th-century France. Badier also used a distinctive finishing stamp cut in the shape of a man's head. Only three signed bindings of his are known; many bindings attributed to him may be the work of imitators. At one time, Badier was considered by some authorities to be the legendary Le Gascon, but has since been disproven. * This is an exceptional and truly microscopic printing of the Four Gospels and the Apocalypse, in French, supposedly created at Charenton, but "available for purchased in Paris." This is a Protestant (French Geneva) edition and was probably not printed at Charenton but at Geneva. * REFERENCE: Bettye Thomas Chambers, Bibliography of French Bibles, Volume 2, no. 1277 (pp. 325) which is a separate issue of Chambers 1276 (slightly different printer's address).

Re-binded leather spine with gilt lettering. A fine copy of a very collectable book;-Richard Vines (1600–1656), puritan divine, was born at Blaston, Leicestershire, about 1600. He was educated at Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. 1622, M.A. 1627. He was an excellent Greek scholar. About 1624 he became schoolmaster at Hinckley, Leicestershire, where John Cleveland [q. v.], the cavalier poet, was among his scholars, and owed much to his training. On the death of James Cranford (1627) he was presented to the rectory of Weddington, Warwickshire, and instituted on 11 March 1627–8. In 1630 he was presented by William Purefoy [q. v.] to the neighbouring rectory of Caldecote, was instituted 10 June, and held both livings, worth together 80l. a year; but the parish register at Hinckley shows that he was still living there in 1640. Having gifts as a preacher, he conducted a weekly lecture at Nuneaton, which was largely attended, and attracted hearers from distant places, among them being Samuel Clarke (1599–1683) [q. v.], afterwards his intimate friend. In 1642 he was presented for Warwickshire as one of the ‘orthodox divines’ to be consulted by parliament ‘touching the reformation of church government and liturgie.’ He preached a fast sermon before the House of Commons (30 Nov. 1642) which made a great impression. Owing to the disturbed state of his county, he took refuge in Coventry early in 1643, with other puritans, and took part in the daily lecture there. Nominated a member of the Westminster assembly by the ordinance of 12 June 1643, he went up to London, and was placed in the rectory of St. Clement Danes, vacant by the sequestration of Richard Dukeson, D.D. (d. 17 Sept. 1678, aged 77). Robert Devereux, third earl of Essex [q. v.], was his parishioner. On 18 March 1643–4 he was made, against his wishes, master of Pembroke Hall, Cam- bridge, by the Earl of Manchester, on the ejection of Benjamin Laney [q. v.] He kept his place in the assembly, but did good work in the college. He found it, according to Clarke, ‘very empty of scholars, and the buildings much out of order,’ having been used as military quarters; his reputation ‘quickly drew scholars,’ and he proved himself a capable administrator and promoter of learning. In June 1644 he was invited by the civic authorities to the vicarage of St. Michael’s, Coventry, but declined. He was placed on the parliamentary ‘committee of accommodation’ (13 Sept. 1644), and chosen chairman (20 Sept.) of the acting sub-committee; his defence of the validity of ordination by presbyters (though himself episcopally ordained) ‘was much applauded by his own party’ (Fuller). At the Uxbridge conference (30 Jan.–18 Feb. 1645) he was one of the assisting divines. On 22 May 1645 Essex presented him to the rectory of Watton, Hertfordshire, when he resigned St. Clement Danes. He preached at Essex’s funeral (22 Oct. 1646). N° de réf. du libraire 235

Description du livre : Chez, Claude Barbin, Jean Boudot, George & Louis Josse, avec privilège du Roy, Paris:, 1692. hardcover. . First edition. This work was first translated into English in 1693. "At this time, a major preoccupation of the Catholic Church and its China mission was to discover a safe land route from Europe to Peking through central Asia. This was due to the large numbers of out-going clergy who perished tragically every year at sea." (Ames & Love, p. 202). "The last decade of the century saw the publication of the accounts of several overland travelers to China and their destinations of China’s inner-Asian neighbors. The story of the Jesuit Philippe Avril’s attempt to establish a route across Russia for the safe passage of missionaries to China appeared in 1692 and includes descriptions of both the routes from Moscow to China and the peoples on China’s frontiers. Avril, himself, however, did not travel beyond Moscow, and his descriptions therefore are not the result of his own observations." (Lach & Kley, pp. 1685-1686). The same for Nicolaas Witsen. Avril Philippe, a Jesuit, born in France, explored extensively throughout Asia and the Far East. He was a professor of mathematics and philosophy in Paris before he began his overland journey. He traveled for six years through Kurdistan, Armenia, Astrakhan, Persia and other parts of the southeast. At one point he came to Moscow and was refused entry to Tatary. He was sent by the government to Poland via Istanbul and back to France. Apparently affected by exhaustion and disease he still undertook another voyage, his last, for the ship was lost at sea circa 1698. – Love, Ronald S. "A Passage to China: A French Jesuit’s Perceptions of Siberia in the 1680s." French Colonial History, 3: p. 94, 2003. Ames & Love offer: "Though obliged to leave Moscow, [Avril] did not return to France with Louis Barnabé Remaining instead at Warsaw, the two Jesuits had entered in early March 1688, Avril attempted twice more to achieve his objective or reaching China by land – if not through Siberia, then via Persia and Central Asia. Aided in part by the Polish monarch, John Sobieski (r.1674- 1696), and his ambassador to Russia, the French priest once again traveled to Moscow in late spring. Just two days after his arrival in the Muscovite capital, however, Avril was ordered summarily out of the country. Once again, he appealed the command in vain. ‘Russia intended to keep her trade with China a secret.’ Nor did he have better luck later the same year (1688), when he and a fellow Jesuit, Père de Beauvillier, tried going south to Constantinople instead, and thence through Persia to Bokhara, Samarkland, and the Chinese frontier. Crossing secretly into Ottoman territory, the two men were arrested as spies. After several weeks, they secured their release and resumed their trek. But Avril, whose health had been waning as a result of relentless exertions, suddenly developed a hemorrhage. Ordered to abandon the search and return home by his superiors, he reached France in autumn 1689." (Ames & Love, p. 219). For Abbé Emile Longin, provenance, see: Bulletin de la Société des sciences et arts du Beaujolais, (1904), p.92. There is a Maggs Bros. [London booksellers], receipt of sale of this copy to Armand Pushman, 10, Nov. 1932. Armand was one of two sons of Hovsep Pushman (1877-1966), an American artist of Armenian descent. He had studied art at the Imperial School of Fine Arts, Istanbul. For a time Pushman lived at the famous Mission Inn, Riverside, California. He was also involved in the founding of the Laguna Beach Art Association. Armand Pushman (d.1999), lived to 98 years and had been throughout his career a partner with his brother in their carpet business Pushman & Company. See: NYT, Obituary, January 11, 1999.

Description du livre : Fei, Roma, 1642. In-4°; pp. (12), 405 (i.e. 305, la numerazione è errata), (3); manca l'antiporta e il ritratto come in moltissime copie. Al front. leggero timbro a inchiostro, annullato che si ripete in margine alle pp. 57, 111, 287; a p. 295 restauro di una piccola lacuna nel testo e a p. 111 restauro marginale. Legatura in piena pergamena, doppio tassello con titolo e fregi in oro al dorso.Edizione originale.Primo storiografo del barocco a Roma, Baglione (1573ca-1644) pubblica questa raccolta di vite espressamente limitandosi al periodo dal 1572 al 1642, ossia dal pontificato di Gregorio XIII a quello di Urbano VIII, e concentrando quasi esclusivamente il suo interesse per le opere romane, tanto da fare di questa raccolta di biografie una sorta di guida di Roma. "Le fonti alle quali attinge il B. sono fonti orali, tratte o dalla tradizione viva relativa ad artisti ancora molto vicini nel tempo, o addirittura dalla frequentazione con artisti viventi: di qui la grande freschezza delle notizie, e quindi la loro attendibilità? Interessante è già l'esordio dell'opera dedícata al cardinal Girolamo Colonna, la prefazione "al Virtuoso lettore" nella quale il B. dichiara il suo intento: continuare, completare le biografie del Vasari e del Borghini" (DBI).Al fine è aggiunta una biografia dell'autore, che oltre a essere un letterato era anche pittore (firma il disegno dell'antiporta in questa edizione) e antiquario. La cornice letteraria che raccoglie le biografie è il dialogo tra un forestiero e un gentiluomo che si snoda durante cinque giornate. Si delinea attraverso le vite degli artisti la fecondità di Roma come centro artistico nella seconda metà del 500 fino ai primi anni del 600. Vasari, Carracci, Zuccari, Caravaggio e i suoi seguaci, Cavalier d'Arpino, Feti, Bernini, Domenichino, Bassano, accanto agli stranieri che furono significativi a Roma, Rubens, Bril, Elsheimer.Da notare che quella di Rubens è la più antica biografia nota. Rossetti 672; Schlosser, 1935, pp. 400 e ss., 409. DBI ad vocem ("anche questo scritto assume eccezionale valore documentario per la ricchezza e precisione delle notizie").

Description du livre : Antonium Boëtzerum, Coloniae, 1614. Couverture souple. État : Très bon. Placé dans un vélin ancien. Un volume in-24 (123x73 mm) de (14)-(2 bl.)-196-(5 bl.) / (6)-89-(1 bl.) pages Reliure salie Pas de gardes. Rare edition (la première en 1610) du "Tyrocinium Chymicum" reliée avec la fameux "Novum Lumen chymicum". Le "Tyrocinium" a été le traité le plus populaire de son époque et a connu plus de 50 éditions de 1610 à 1669. Il traite de chimie et de iatrochimie. Béguin donne aussi la description de certaines substances chimiques, sans oublier de mentionner l'auteur de la découverte. Le "Novum Lumen Chymicum" (première édition en 1604 à Prague et la première donnée par Beguin en 1608 à Paris) est l'un des plus célèbres traité d'alchimie. Souvent attribuée à Sendivogius, cet ouvrage est en fait d'Alexandre Sethon, dit le Cosmopolite. Alexandre Sethon passa sa vie à convaincre de la réalité de l'alchimie. Complètement désintéressé, il alla de villes en villes pour convaincre les plus incrédules en réalisant des transmutations de plomb en or. Sa notoriété fût croissante et il fut appelé à la cours de l'électeur de Saxe, Christian II, ou il réalisa une transmutation. L'or obtenu résista à toutes les épreuves. Alors sommé de donner son secrêt. Sethon refusa, il fut tortuté puis emprisonné en vain. Il fut libéré par Michael Sendivogius à qui il donna sa provision de pierre philosophale et ses manuscrits. Il succomba peu de temps après à ses blessures. Après avoir épousé sa veuve, Sendivogius publia les traités de Sethon. Voici le témoignage d'une transmutation réalisée devant les scientifiques Jacob Zwinger et Wolfgang Deinheim (in de Miberali medicina. Argentorati. 1610, retranscrit dans Figuier, "l'Alchimie et les Alchimistes"). « En 1602, écrit le docteur Dienheim, lorsqu'au milieu de l'été je revenais de Rome en Allemagne, je me trouvai à côté d'un homme singulièrement spirituel, petit de taille, mais assez gros, d'un visage coloré, d'un tempérament sanguin, portant une barbe brune taillée à la mode de France. Il était vêtu d'un habit de satin noir et avait pour toute suite un seul domestique, quel'on pouvait distinguer entre tous par ses cheveux rouges et sa barbe de même couleur. Cet homme s'appelait Alexander Sethonius.Il était natif de Molia, dans une île de l'Océan. A Zurich, où le prêtre Tghlin lui donna une lettre pour le docteur Zvinger, nous louâmes un bateau et nous nous rendîmes par eau à Bâle. Quand nous fûmes arrivés dans cette ville, mon compagnon me dit: - « Vous vous rappelez que, dans tout le voyage et sur le bateau. vous avez attaqué l'alchimie et les alchimistes. Vous vous souvenez aussi que je vous ai promis de vous répondre, non par des démonstrations, mais bien par une action philosophique. J'attends encore quelqu'un que je veux convaincre en même temps que vous. afin que les adversaires de l'alchimie cessent leurs doutes sur cet art.» On fut alors chercher le personnage en question, que je connaissais seulement de vue et qui ne demeurait pas loin de notre hôtel. J'appris plus tard que c'était le docteur Jacob Zvinger, dont la famille compte tant de naturalistes célèbres. Nous nous rendîmes tous les trois chez un ouvrier des mines d'or, avec plusieurs plaques de plomb que Zvinger avait emportées de sa maison, un creuset que nous prîmes chez un orfèvre, et du soufre ordinaire que nous achetâmes en chemin. Sethon ne toucha à rien. Il fit faire du feu, ordonna de mettre le plomb et le soufre dans le creuset, de placer le couvercle et d'agiter la masse avec des baguettes. Pendant ce temps, il causait avec nous. Au bout d'un quart d'heure. il nous dit: - « Jetez ce petit papier dans le plomb fondu, mais bien au milieu, et tâchez que rien ne tombe dans le feu!.» Dans ce papier était une poudre assez lourde, d'une couleur qui paraissait jaune-citron ; du reste, il fallait avoir de bons yeux pour la distinguer. Quoique aussi incrédules que saint Thomas lui-même, nous fimes tout ce qui nous était commandé. Après que la masse eut été chauffée environ un quart d'heure encore, et continuelleme.

Rare first edition. "Sébastien Le Clerc argued that in natural vision one eye is always dominant at any one instance, and that the painter's one-eyed vision is therefore justified." Kemp, The science of art p. 236. "An unusual work on the physiology of vision, with special regard to its implications for artistic perspective." Collect. B. Becker in ophtalmology 235. DESCRIPTION Première édition, rare. Illustré par 34 charmantes gravures à pleine page. (25 gravées sur cuivre et 9 sur bois). Sébastien Le Clerc était graveur, et aussi professeur de perspective à l'Académie Royale de peinture. Il combat dans cet ouvrage quelques uns des principes de Descartes et participe à la grande controverse de l'époque sur la vision binoculaire. Il affirme que dans la vision normale, un oeil seulement est dominant et justifie ainsi la vision monoculaire du peintre. Dédicace en tête d'ouvrage à "Monsieur Colbert d'Ormoy" avec lequel Le Clerc eut l'honneur de s'entretenir quelquefois "touchant la perspective & la proportion des figures." Petits défauts à la reliure, avec un petit manque au début de la seconde charnière, mais bel exemplaire. N° de réf. du libraire 14898

The Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester KG, KT, KP, his sale Christie's, London 27th January 2006; from the Collection of Prince and Princess Henry De la Tour d'Auvergne Lauraguais, their sale Sotheby's London, 3rd May, 2012, lot 322 This suite of magnificent plates reproduce one of the outstanding works of Giulio Romano, a favourite pupil of Raphael, his stylistic deviations from high Renaissance classicism helped to define the 16th-century Mannerist style. Contemporary engravings of Giulio's drawings were a significant contribution to the spread of 16th-century Italian style throughout Europe. Guilio's fresco of the entrée of Emperor Sigismund into Mantua in 1432 can still be seen as a stucco frieze that wraps around the Sala degli Stucchi (Room of the Stuccos) in the famous Palazzo del Te, Giulio's acknowledged masterwork, constructed between 1524-1534 for Federico II Gonzaga, Marquess of Mantua. The frieze, and Stella's engravings narrate a crucial event in Mantua's history: in 1433, Holy Roman Emperor Sigismond visited the city and bestowed the title of marquis on Gianfrancesco I Gonzaga. The frieze aggrandizes Sigismond's visit by portraying him at the center of a Roman adventus, or triumphal entrance into a city. Sigismond, dressed in the armor of Rome, enters Mantua flanked by soldiers, musicians, river gods, sacrificial animals, slaves, and spoils of war. The celebrated write Vasari in his "Le Vite de' più eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori da Cimabue insino a' tempi nostril" writes of his meeting with Guilio "On meeting, they recognised each other as though they had met a thousand times before. Giulio was so delighted that he spent four days in showing Vasari all his works, especially the plans of ancient buildings at Rome, Naples, Pozzuolo, Campagna, and all the other principal antiquities designed partly by him and partly by others. Then, opening a great cupboard, he showed him plans of all the buildings erected from his designs in Mantua, Rome and all Lombardy, so beautiful that I do not believe that more original, fanciful or convenient buildings exist". Antoinette Bauzonnet, called Stella after her more famous uncle Jacques Stella, was one of a number of artistically gifted siblings based in Lyon, in the second half of the 17th century.

 A lovely set, finely bound, of the first and only edition of Pliny's Natural History printed by the Elzevir press, edited by Jean de Laet. “The text is that of Salmasius, and is considered to be very correct. This is the only duodecimo edition of the Elder Pliny ever published by the Elzevir family, and its beauty is a theme of extraordinary commendation by the French bibliographers. M. Renouard, who is supposed to have the finest known copy of it - and which copy cost him about 10l. of our money - is minute and interesting. Bibl. d’un Amateur, vol. i p. 244. . A copy of this Pliny (executed by Bonaventure and Abraham Elzevir) preserved in the important library of M. Huzard, shews us the pains taken by the printer, for the correction of the text. This copy has the text printed only on one side, and the blank side is pasted on paper of a folio form; each folio page having two columns of text. The margins, which contain plentiful corrections, evince the solicitude of the printers in obtaining an accurate text.” Dibdin. An introduction to the knowledge of rare and valuable editions of the Greek. Vol. II p. 323. "The 'Natural History' of Pliny the Elder is more than a natural history, it is an encyclopaedia of all the knowledge of the ancient world . It comprises thirty-seven books dealing with mathematics and physics, geography and astronomy, medicine and geology, anthropology and physiology, philosophy and history, agriculture and mineralogy, the arts and letters . scholars as various as Humboldt and Grimm have praised and acknowledged their debt to it. Over and over again, it will be found that the source of some ancient piece of knowledge is Pliny" Printing and the Mind of Man 5 on the ed. princ. The arts section alone tells us more than any other single work about classical silver and bronze work, painting, modeling and sculpture. It is also of tremendous interest in all that concerns the Romans interest in food and wine. “Après Columelle, Pline est de tous les auteurs latins celui auquel nous devons le plus de données sur les différentes espèces de vignes et de vins connues des anciens” Simon Bibl. Bacchica. Book XIV is consecrated to wine, 22 chapters treat the subject in great detail. The book also gives much information on agriculture, fruit, both cultivated and wild, wheat, fish and game, medicinal plants, bees, perfumes etc. Book XV is entirely consecrated to fruit with recipes on how to conserve them. “Dans Pline, on trouve tout” Oberlé, Les Fastes de Bacchus et de Comus. A very handsome set of this rare and beautifully printed edition.
