Description du livre : Jobus Hertz for Johann Andrea Endter & Heirs of Wolfgang Junior, Nuremberg:, 1665. hardcover. 1 FIRST EDITION OF THIS EARLY WORK ON CRYPTOGRAPHY AND CIPHERS, AND MORE SPECIFICALLY SECRET WRITING. Noel Malcolm points out that political and religious authorities want to conceal the knowledge of esoteric or secret doctrines in order to control power and stressing the importance of keeping secret one’s counsel. –See: "Private and Public Knowledge," by Noel Malcolm, in Findlen [below], p.305. Schott (1608-1666) Jesuit, student and assistant of Athanasius Kircher, during the last years of his life he decided to publish the mass of material he had collected on scientific subjects both from his own researches and those of others. He produced in a period of eight years (1658-1666) eleven books. He taught mathematics and physics at Mainz and Würzberg. He ".yearned for the intellectual delights of Rome, and after twenty-five years in Italy he suffered from German winters and had to have his own hypocaust installed.Exhausted, it is said, by overwork on his books, he died in 1666." - DSB XII, p.211. "Steganography falls into two branches, linguistic steganography and technical steganography. Only the first is closely related to cryptography. The technical aspect can be covered very quickly: invisible inks have been in use since Pliny’s time. Onion juice and milk have proved popular and effective through the ages (turning brown under heat or ultraviolet light)." – Friedrich L. Bauer, Decrypted Secrets: Methods and Maxims of Cryptology, p.8. PROVENANCE: Hedwig & Eberhard Frey. Eberhard Frey (1872-1963) was a German writer and art critic and a collector (and writer about) of bookplates. See: Richard Braungart, Deutsche Exlibris und Andrere Kleingraphik der Gegenwart.

Description du livre : Joannes Toll,, Harderwyk, 1656. Oblong 4to. Contemp. mottled calf, spine ribbed and gilt, red and blue mottled edges. 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".

Description du livre : 1623. Hardcover. État : Very Good. "CONVENT OF THE BAREFOOT ROYALS- A CENTER OF THE SPANISH RENAISSANCE" [MANUSCRIPT] España-Alegaciones en derecho. Mitia, Juana (lit.). Por quanto la serenissima princesa de Portugal doña Juana Mitia, que aya gloria, fundo el monasterio con su iglesia de nuestra señora de la consolacion, que dizen de las descalças, en la villa de Madrid, de la primera regla de santa Clara de Viril observancia, por el año passado de mil y quinientos y cinquenta y quatro, y desde entonces todo el tiempo que vivio, hasta que mun'o el año de mil y quinientos y setenta y tres que se enterro, en el, tuvo gran cuenta y cuydado de socorrer al dicho monasterio con sus Iimosnas, teniendole principalmente de lo que toca al culto divino, para que se celebrasse con mayor devocion, religion, decencia, y autoridad, y que la iglesia del dicho monasterio fuesse mejor servida. S.l., s.n., [1623]. LARGE FOLIO, 38 x 28 cm., [1 blank], 63 lvs. (i.e. 126 pgs), [ 4 lvs index] Vellum Binding with ties. The magnificent indigo-dyed patterned paper endpapers and paste-downs appear integral to the book, though could conceivably have been added at a somewhat later date. Regardless, they represent some of the earliest and most attractive examples of their type. Wilkinson and Lorenzo in Libros Ibéricos Volúmenes II y III notes two other copies of this manuscript in the National Historical Archive in Madrid and the Convent of Las Descalzas Reales. This 17th century manuscript is, as stated on its cover, a fair copy of the administrative regulations and rules of the Convent of Our Lady of Consolation (Nuestra Señora de la Consolación) for the nuns of the order of Poor Clares. The Convent was founded by Joanna of Austria (1535 – 1573), the mother of Sebastian of Portugal, and later regent of Spain for her brother, Philip II of Spain. It was also known as "Discalced Clarisses (in Spanish, clarisas descalzas) because they did not wear covered shoes, and only walked either barefoot or in sandals, now known as the Convent of Las Descalzas Reales, or convent of the barefoot royals, partly due to her affiliation." Windowed and spinster noblewoman with hefty dowries were drawn to the service of the Convent and it quickly became one of the wealthiest in Europe. "Tomás Luis de Victoria, Spain's finest Renaissance composer, worked at the convent from 1587 to the end of his life in 1611." and "among the priceless art masterpieces are Titian's Caesar's Money, tapestries woven to designs by Rubens, and works by Hans de Beken and Brueghel the Elder."

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 ."

Description du livre : chez Rolet Boutonne, au palais, a l'entree de la petite Galerie des prisonniers, Paris, 1628. Softcover. État : Very good. Folio. Three vols in one pp. 1) pp. [xii], 197, [iii]. 2) pp. [iv], 95, [i]. 3) pp. [viii], 70, [ii]. Roman letter. First two titles in red and black, large engraved printer’s device on each, of two angels supporting the arms of Louis XIII, signed Picart on first, vol 1 with very numerous woodcut and engraved arms, vol two with woodcut arms and genealogical tables, small woodcut diagrams in text of third, all with fine floriated initials and head and tail-pieces. Light age yellowing, some leaves slightly browned, minor, light, marginal water-stains in places. Very good, clean, well margined copies, in contemporary limp vellum, slightly soiled, nibbled at edges in places, small stab hole in upper cover, upper edge a bit chewed. An excellent collection of three of the most important French works on heraldry, covering, between them all aspects of that art or science, all corrected and augmented and beautifully illustrated and printed. The first work by Bara concerns the history and tradition of heraldry starting with a general description of the forms in heraldry, with descriptions of the colours and form of arms and the use, meaning and history of the various symbols. The second part includes descriptions of the arms of a whole host of historical and mythical individuals, including Prester John, Alexander the Great, Hercules, and the arms of the Knights of the Round table, who were a significant element in medieval heraldry. (The identification of individuals from the Arthurian legends with particular arms is evidenced from as early as the 12th century, by the 15th century some 200 such arms had been attributed.) He also includes the arms of figures from the Old Testament, Greek and Roman mythology. The work ends with descriptions of the arms of the major houses of Europe and the high nobility of France. Scohier’s work, regarded as one of the best French heraldic treatises, also starts with a general description of the form of arms. It then elaborates a method of compiling genealogies and describes how arms are passed from generation to generation, with significant sections on the rights and laws of the wearing of arms. The final work by Moreau is prefaced by an interesting letter addressed to "La Noblesse Francoise" describing the importance of arms and their heritage to the nobility and royalty. In it describes succinctly the purpose of this work, "de rechercher les raisons des Armoiries tant principals, & substantielles, que parergues, & accessoires, comme de leurs Tymbres, Ordres, & Suports, & puis rebroussant iusqu’a leur premiere origine, tascher de desfricher, & descouvrir l’antiquite des plus grandes, & illustres.". As stated he researches the first origins of the use of arms and discusses in length the meaning of each major aspect of the design of arms and their first use, their original significance and modern interpretation. It is probable that the three works were put together by the publisher or a contemporary bookseller as they are complementary in design and use and represent the periods best works on heraldry. Brunet states that they are sometimes found together in this form. (Brunet, Bara I 642). 1) BM STC Fr. C17th B192. Brunet, I 642. Graesse I 287. 2) BM STC Fr. C17th S 475. Brunet V 234.

Description du livre : De l'Impression de Jacob Canin chez Guillaume Guillemot, Dordrecht, 1601. Hardcover. État : Very good. " FIRST EDITION. Folio, 3 parts in 2 vols., pp. (xxii) 650 (ii) ; 240 (xviii), (xvi) 780 (misnumbered 779) (xvi). Roman letter, Italic side notes, text in double column. Woodcut floriated and grotesque initials, both titles within splendid engraved architectural border with the instruments of learning above, of the arts, sciences and war at sides, and scenes depicting mercantile and maritime activity beneath, full-page portrait of the author and 57 three-quarter page engravings of emperors, governors and other important figures, including Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley, by Christoph von Sichem. Contemp autograph of 'Simeon Mahon, Chartain' (Chartres) and autograph of 'Challine Boilleau' on title-page, Nicolas-Joseph Foucault's engraved armorial bookplate on pastedowns, C19 armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on fly, Shirburn Castle blindstamp to head of first three ll. of both vols. Closed tear (original paper flaw) in plate on A1 vol 2, I1 verso and I8 recto printed upside down, R2 inserted in the wrong place, paper flaw in Mm3 vol 2, light age yellowing, a few sheets browned, printers ink thumbing in a few margins. A very good copy, with generally very good impression of the plates, in contemporary calf, covers bordered with a single gilt filet, gilt laurel oval at centers, spines with raised bands blind ruled with gilt fleurons at centers, title gilt lettered in compartment, all edges of vol 1 yellow, those of vol 2 blue, head and tail of spines a little chipped, covers a little scratched. First edition of this highly important and beautifully illustrated history of the Dutch Republic, printed privately for the author. The commendatory verses include one in Dutch by Nicholas Doublet. Although the author covers the whole of the country's history up to 1600, about two thirds of the text is devoted to the C16th., making it one of the most detailed sources for the struggle for Dutch independence. Le Petit lists some 160 authors whose works he employed in his compilation, but much of its value lies in his use of mss. and original documents, and thus in his account of events otherwise unrecorded in printed histories. Le Petit's own history reflects the unsettled nature of the times he wrote on: although born in 1546 at Béthune into a noble Belgian family, he later abjured Catholicism and fled to Holland where he served William Ist, Prince of Orange. By 1598 he was living in Aix-la-Chapelle where he wrote his "Grande Chronicle" and dedicated it to the Estates-General of the United Provinces. An account of the reputed Swiss engravers, Christoph von Sichem Sr. and Jr., is given in Nagler II pp. 309-11. The portraits are generally finely engraved and are often expressive and vital, especially the superb full page portrait of the author after the title. About 16 pages in vol. I describe the geography of the New World, the supposed origins of its native inhabitants, the voyages of discovery, the conquest of the Indians, the climate, agriculture and resources of the Americas, their colonization, government and the missions, and the shameful treatment of the Indians by the Spaniards. Further pages deal with the expeditions of the Dutch to the East Indies and their commerce and colonization there. In vol. II Drake's exploits against the Spaniards in the New World are recorded. "Cette chronique, écrite en mauvais français, est fort curieuse pour les nombreux faits qu'elle relate, et que l'auteur a puisés aux sources originales . Il dit dans son épitre dédicatoire qu'il a décrit les choses après les avoir vues sur les lieux, et promet d'être beaucoup plus exact que Guichardin qu'il contredit souvent" (Nouv. Biog. Gén.). "En revanche la valeur historique du 2e vol., qui embrasse la période de 1556-1600, est incontestable; il contient, à coté d'extraits de plusieurs auteurs antérieurs, beaucoup de détails et de particularités qu'on chercherait vainement ailleurs."

Description du livre : Paris: Chez Antoine Dezallier, 1696., 1696. One Hundred and Two Magnificent Portraits of Famous Men of the Seventeenth CenturyPERRAULT, Charles. Les Hommes Illustres qui ont paru en France pendant ce Siecle: Avec leurs Portraits au naturel. Par Mr Perrault, de l'Academie Françoise. Paris: Chez Antoine Dezallier, 1696-1700. First edition. Two folio volumes (16 15/16 x 11 1/8 inches; 431 x 283 mm.). [viii], 100, [2], [2], [2, list of plates]; [iv], 102, [1], [1, blank] pp. Allegorical title engraved by Edelinck after Bonet, engraved portrait engraved by Edelinck after Tortebat (facing preface) of Charles Perrault and 102 fine portraits engraved by Lubin, Edelinck, Duflos, van Schuppen and Nanteuil, of the illustrious men of France, including the two 'suppressed' plates of Antoine Arnauld, Docteur de Sorbonne and Blaise Pascal which are bound in with their respective leaves of text at the end of the text in volume one.Contemporary mottled calf, spines with six raised bands, decoratively stamped in gilt in compartments, red morocco labels lettered in gilt. top and bottom of spines expertly and almost invisibly repaired. A fine and large copy of the first printing with early impressions of the plates and wide margins. The censor had suppressed two of the portraits, Antoine Arnauld and Blaise Pascal replacing them with those of Louis Thomassin, Prestre de l'Oratoire and Charles Du Fresne, Sieur Du Cange. These two censored portraits and the corresponding text sheets have been bound in at the end of the first volume, as in the example cited by Brunet. "Comme le siecle où nous vivons, riche des biens de tous les siecles precedens qu'il a recueillis par droit de succession, & riche encore de son propre fonds, a vû toutes les Sciences & tous les Arts s'élever en quelque sorte à leur derniere perfection; il n'est pas étonnant qu'il ait esté si fecond en grands Hommes" (Préface). An English translation by J. Ozell, was published in 1704, and a Dutch edition in French in 1736, but neither of these editions reproduced the engravings that had originally accompanied the text in the first edition. There has never been a second edition. The only other version that is currently available is by Slatkine (1970), a photo-facsimile reproduction of the first edition. Perrault's work consists of one hundred and two pen-portraits of famous men of the seventeenth century, each accompanied by an engraving. No women are included, though this cannot be attributed to misogyny in the case of Perrault who was much maligned for his own Apologie des femmes (1694). No individual portrait is longer than two pages. For inclusion, the individuals had to be dead (hence Boileau, who died in 1711, could not have been included and, in any case, since he was an arch Ancient and a long-standing literary enemy, Perrault might have chosen to exclude him). Charles Perrault (1628-1703) was a French author and member of the Académie Française. He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known of his tales include Le Petit Chaperon Rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botté (Puss in Boots), La Belle au bois Dormant (The Sleeping Beauty), and Barbe Bleue (Bluebeard). Some of Perrault's versions of old stories may have influenced the German versions published by the Brothers Grimm more than 100 years later. The stories continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (such as Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty), theatre, and film. Perrault was an influential figure in the 17th-century French literary scene, and was the leader of the Modern faction during the Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns.Brunet (IV, 509).

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

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.

Pratt, triple gilt fillets on covers, spine gilt in compartments with cruciform centerpiece and curling vine cornerpieces, very pretty gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. WITH 40 SUMPTUOUS ENGRAVINGS, including an engraved title page, 38 portraits of important religious figures and saints, and a final plate depicting these personnages worshipping God in Heaven. Funck, p. 212, fig. 80 & p. 215; Brunet I, 946. See also: Bryan II, p. 210-11. Joints and corners slightly rubbed, one-inch repair to the margin of leaf N1, faint offsetting from plates (slightly heavier in a handful of cases), occasional minor marginal stains, otherwise A VERY PLEASING COPY, WITH ESPECIALLY STRONG, CLEAN IMPRESSIONS OF THE ENGRAVINGS. Offered here in an especially well-preserved copy, this work is of primary interest for its beautiful engravings done after paintings that once made the Benedictine Abbey of Liessies famous--paintings which, tragically, were either sold, given away, or destroyed during the French Revolution. All but two of the engravings seen here are portraits of important religious personages, including the obvious central figures (Christ, the Virgin, John the Baptist, the Church Fathers, etc.) as well as more recently cannonized saints such as Theresa of Avila. The prolific Étienne Binet (1569-1639), a Jesuit priest from Dijon, has supplied a short biography for each figure, as well as a list of central maxims associated with them, in order to encourage contemplation by the reader. The radiant plates promote this same spirit of meditation and communicate the distinct personalities of their subjects, thanks to the remarkable talents of the designer who studied the original paintings, Theodor Galle (1571-1633), and the engraver who brought them to life, Cornelis Galle (1576-1656). These two artists were brothers, born into a famous Belgian family of engravers. They learned the craft from their father, Phillip, and later in Italy, where they studied the Masters and perfected their art. Back in Antwerp, Cornelis and Theodor both became prominent members of society and found success and prosperity in their careers: Theodor was master of his guild in Antwerp, where, according to Bryan, "he held a commanding position" and for 33 years supplied engravings for the Plantin press (his descendants continued this relationship until 1694). Cornelis was greatly successful in his work as a printseller, collector, and engraver. Their work, particularly that of Cornelis, is considered to be among the best of the period, and this dynamic collaboration between the two siblings seems to bring out the best qualities of each artist: the plates in the present volume are cleverly designed, full of animated activity and detail, and characterized by a high level of precision, even in the rendering of the smallest figures. Offered here in an especially well-preserved copy, this work is of primary interest for its beautiful engravings done after paintings that once made the Benedictine Abbey of Liessies famous--paintings which, tragically, were either sold, given away, or destroyed during the French Revolution.

Description du livre : Padua: Pietro Paolo Tozzi, 1623., 1623. [WITH:] INGEGNERI, Giovanni. Fisionomia Naturale [WITH:] POLEMON. Fisionomia Di Polemone [WITH:] PORTA, Gio[vanni] Battista Della. 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 : Paris Imprimerie Royale (di Amsterdam Adrien Schoonebeek), 1693. (16,5 x 20,5 cm). (8) 78 (2) S. Mit radiertem Titelblatt, radierter Titelvignette, radiertem Plan und 40 ganzseitigen Radierungen von Sébastian Leclerc. Pergamentband der Zeit. Seltene Amsterdamer Ausgabe des prachtvollen, erstmals 1677 in Paris erschienenen Gartenbuchs. - Die "Bibliothèque nationale" führt zur vorliegenden Ausgabe aus: "A Amsterdam, chez Adrien Schoonebeek, dans le Galverstraat. 1693 suivant la copie à Paris, de l'Imprimerie royale. MDCXCIII, 1693", im Gegensatz zum Frontispiz "A Amsterdam ches Pierre Mortier Avec Privilege". - Detailliert beschrieben werden hier das Labyrinth, die Skulpturen und die entsprechenden Fabeln. Der französische Staatsbeamte und Schriftsteller Charles Perrault (1628-1703) war maßgeblich an der Planung des Louvre sowie des Schlosses und Gartens von Versailles beteiligt. Seinem Interesse an Märchen und Fabeln kam die Aufgabe zupass, die Brunnen des Lustgartens nach den Vorbildern der Fabeln des Äsop zu gestalten. Perrault riet seinem König (Ludwig XIV.), die Gartenarchitektur mit 39 Brunnen, die jeweils eine Fabel darstellen, zu beleben. Ausgeführt wurden die Arbeiten zwischen 1672 und 1677. Da Ludwig XVI. die Anlage wieder zerstören ließ, stellt das vorliegende Werk eine der wenigen exakten Quellen dar. Die Tafeln zeigen den Grundriss des Labyrinths sowie die verschiedenen Brunnen. - Nahezu fleckenfreies Exemplar mit herrlichen, gratigen Stichen in zeitgenössischem Einband. Insgesamt in sehr guter Erhaltung. - Vgl. Ornamentstichsammlung 3605; Brunet III, 723; Graesse IV, 61 (alle die Ausg. 1677 bzw. 1679). N° de réf. du libraire 105678-01
