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. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. N° de réf. du libraire 010820

Description du livre : Paris: dans l'Isle du Palais et G. Saugrain, . First edition., 1698. Pp. (12), 219, (1); additional engraved title page, 29 engraved maps and plates, 9 of which are folding. Contemporary speckled calf leather, spine with 5 raised bands, red morocco title label in one compartment lettered in gilt, the five remaining compartments with elaborate gilt decorations, sm 8vo (184 x 105 mm). This is the rare first edition of an expedition undertaken in 1695-1697 to found a French settlement in the Straits of Magellen - that project ultimately failed. The expedition additionally visited the coast of Africa, Brazil and French Guiana (Cox II, p. 264). This account of the expedition is especially noteworthy for details of natural history subjects and for the accuracy of Froger's charts. Froger went on this voyage at the age of eighteen (Hill Collection, 2004, no. 656). The work contains one of the earliest maps of the port of Rio de Janeiro. See also Sabin 26001. Armorial bookplate of Charles Izard Manigault (1795-1874), grandson of Gabriel Manigault (1704-1781), a rice planter and businessman from South Carolina who was considered one of the wealthiest men in the colonies. It is known that between 1817 and 1823, Charles Manigault travelled widely in Asia, Australia and South America. On his return to the United States he entered the family business as a plantation owner. He was also an art collector- his collection of family portraits was considered the finest in America (from Emory Rare Books). Endpapers show a little marginal browning, light wear and a few age cracks to spine, the contents are very bright and clean; a tight copy in very good condition in an attractive contemporary binding.

Première édition en italien (le livre fut publié en latin en 1633 et la seconde édition italienne fut imprimée en 1646), de cet un ouvrage devenu désormais un classique de la culture et de l'usage des fleurs, tout premier ouvrage de floriculture. L'oeuvre se divise en quatre parties: le livre I. traite de l'architecture, de la fabrication des parterres, allées, labyrinthes, donnant en exemple les jardins de Francesco Caetani.

Enfin le dernier livre aborde certains secrets relatifs à la possibilité d'obtenir deux floraisons par an, l'art de teindre les fleurs, la création de bouquets raffinés, la fabrication de fleurs confites. Les 45 très belles planches se décomposent comme suit: vingt illustrent des fleurs individuelles, 8 représentent des parterres, cinq des parties de jardins et six des vases et bouquets, ces planches sont l'oeuvre de Anna Maria Vaiani. Les sept gravures allégoriques sont quant à elles l'oeuvre d'artistes tels que Pietro Berretini da Cortona, Guido Reni, Andrea Sacchi, et gravées sur cuivre par J. F. Greuter, Claude Mellon et d'autres. Giovanni Battista Ferrari (1584-1655), jésuite siennois, fut professeur de Belles Lettres et enseigna l'hébreu pendant 28 ans au Collège Romain. Il fut l'auteur en 1646 d'un volume de botanique précurseur et fondamental traitant des citrons: ''Hesperides sive de malorum aureorum cultura et usu libri quator", contenant 100 magnifiques planches illustrant 79 agrumes, dont la plupart étaient représentés et décrits pour la toute première fois.

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 : Paris, François Le Cointe for the author & Nicolas Langlois, 1683. Hardcover. État : Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 4to. Engraved title + [4]f + 445p + [9]f including errata leaf. Title with vignette of a bomb about to explode with descriptive legend, over 130 diagrams and textual engravings (22 full-page), 10 tables (4 full-page), attractive vignette at each of the four chapter headings, ornamental floral tail-pieces throughout. Contemporary marbled calf; backstrip gilt; worn; ends of spine repaired. The rare first edition of this seminal artillery handbook based on Galilei's doctrine of a trajectory as a parabola, and the earliest application of this theory to military science. Arranged in four parts, the book begins with a general discussion of the theories advocated by Galilei, Tartaglia, Ufano, Collado, Rivaut de Flurance, Siemienowski, Elrich and Cassini. The second part describes a number of instruments and sinus tables to facilitate the task of the bombardier. The third part is devoted to trajectory theory, and the final section addresses practical problems in the application of these theories. Blondel, an architect and military engineer, was quartermaster general, inspector of public works in Paris, and tutor to the Dauphin. He also taught mathematics at the French Academy of Sciences. His manuscript was presented to Louis XIV in 1675, but publication was delayed for eight years for fear it might profit the enemy. It served as the basic text for the newly formed French Bombardier Company, and was often re-printed and translated. The fine engraved illustrations are by Jean-Baptiste Broebes, engraver and architect, a pupil of Jean Marot (cf.Thieme-Becker V: 44); the frontispiece and 2 plates are signed by him. A tall, well preserved copy; edges of tailend blank margins of last quire with isolated light waterstain. An 18th century manuscript note in blank title margin states that this book was donated by brigadier Filippi to the Capuchin library at Racconiggi in 1775. Jähns 1240-1242; Riling 180; Spaulding & Karpinski 187; Goldsmith (1203) lists an 1685 imprint as the earliest edition held by the British Library; Kiely, Surveying Instruments, 113; Lipperheide (Ra3) lists 1699 edition giving date of first edition in error as 1689.

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 : 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 : 1647. In Venetia [Venise], Presso Antonio Bariletti, 1647. In folio (249 X 355) demi-vélin ivoire, plats de carton souple (reliure de l'époque); (4) ff. (dont titre orné d'une grande vignette gravée), 60 ff. Ex-libris «DR» [Désiré Ruggieri] dessiné et gravé par Baticle collé sur le premier contreplat. UN RARE ET IMPORTANT TRAITÉ D'ARTILLERIE DE LA FIN DU XVIe SIÈCLE. L'ouvrage est conçu sous la forme d'un jeu de 69 questions-réponses entre deux interlocuteurs (ff. 1 à 44), suivi d'une série d'«instructions» ou «avvertimento» (ff. 45 à 58). Ces dialogues évoquent certaines idées défendues par des théoriciens de l'art militaire, pour mieux les dénigrer ensuite sur le ton de la moquerie, au profit de préceptes avancés par l'auteur. Ces dialogues et instructions concernent principalement l'artillerie, les fortifications ainsi que les FEUX D'ARTIFICES. Il s'agit de la quatrième édition, les précédentes ayant été imprimées en 1598, 1602 et 1618, toutes à Venise. Alessandro CAPOBIANCO, originaire de Vicence, en Vénétie, était capitaine des artilleurs de la ville de Crema, en Lombardie. Ce FAMEUX TRAITÉ, qui contient toutes les connaissances acquises au XVIe siècle sur la pratique de l'artillerie, dédié par l'auteur à Lunardo Rossetti, capitaine des bombardiers de Venise, est divisé en CINQ PARTIES: 1): "Del Capitano sopra l'artiglieria è esaminato il bombardiero". (Du capitaine sur l'artillerie et en particulier du bombardier). 2) : "Delle provisioni nelle fattioni di mare con altri avvertimenti" (Du matériel utilisé pour les manoeuvres en mer avec d'autres instructions). 3) : "Delle invenzioni de fuochi artificiali per feste e giuoco" (Des feux d'artifices pour les fêtes et les jeux). 4): "Della cognizione per misurare distanze" (De la connaissance de la mesure des distances). 5): "Breve Ragionamento sopra la fortificazione" (Brefs raisonnements sur les fortifications). 96 FIGURES SUR BOIS dans le texte, certaines de grand format, représentant des canons, du matériel militaire, des machines de guerre, des feux d'artifices, plans de fortifications, vue de ville, etc., et une grande vignette de titre représentant l'auteur, un fusil à la main, devant une table sur laquelle reposent un petit canon, une équerre, un compas, un plan de fortification, deux grandes plumes et une couronne. Le cadre de cette illustration est composé de matériel militaire. EXEMPLAIRE TRÈS PUR relié sur brochure, imprimé sur beau vergé à la forme, avec ses grandes marges d'origine conservées. Il provient de la BIBLIOTHÈQUE de Désiré-François RUGGIERI (1818-1885), qui fut l'artificier et le protégé de Napoléon III. Grand érudit, bibliophile, il fut également l'élève d'Ingres avant de succéder à son père Claude-Fortuné RUGGIERI, et de reprendre la célèbre entreprise familiale de feux d'artifices.

Folio, mostly in sixes, pp. [16], 443, 446 - 1031, [27], 76, [34], with an engraved title, dated 1656, designed by Francis Barlow, and integral engraved portrait vignettes in the last part (the space for the intended vignette of Priscian the Grammarian remains blank on 5G1 verso), title printed in red and black, separate title pages for 'The Lives of Epaminondas [etc.]', dated 1656, and for 'Prosopographia: or some select Pourtraitures and Lives by Andrew Thevet', dated 1657 (mistakenly bound before the 'Notes and Explanations' at 3T1); with an advertisement leaf and thirty-four pages of index; early prelims a little tattered, split in 5D2 without loss, but a very good copy in contemporary calf, rubbed, rebacked.'Fifth' (i.e. sixth) edition, with added material. North's celebrated translation of Plutarch has long been recognized as a major source for Shakespeare, providing not only the historical framework for Julius Caesar, Anthony and Cleopatra, and Coriolanus, but 'long passages of magnificent prose' that Shakespeare put 'into blank verse with little change' (F. E. Halliday).Dedicated to Elizabeth I, North's Plutarch first appeared in 1579 and was reprinted in 1595. The third edition (1603) was the first to add new material, appending lives translated from L'Escluse. There were no additions in the next two editions (1612, 1631), but, having been encouraged 'to venture upon a new and fifth impression', the stationer William Lee, wishing to render it 'both acceptable to the present Age, and famous to Posterity, decided to add the 'quintessence' of André Thevet's Pourtraits et vies des Hommes illustres Grecz, Latin, et Payens (Paris, 1584), being 'the very marrow of his observations during his twenty three yeers travails and Peregrinations, throughout the chiefest and remotest parts in the world (never as yet extant nor seen in English)'.Among the new biographies from Thevet (mostly translated by the playwright George Gerbier d'Ouvilly) are those of Aristotle, Homer, Sappho, Charlemagne, Tamburlaine, Atabalipa King of Peru, and Gutenberg, with a two-page poem commemorating his life and 'the Excellency of the Art of Printing'.Wing P 2633.

Description du livre : Printed for Sam. Smith, London, 1685. Hardcover. 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

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

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 : Le Mans, Jacques Ysambart 1662., 1662. First and only edition of a significant text in the history of art, dedicated to the Duc D?Orleans, Louis XIV?s younger brother. Its author, Roland Fréart, Sieur de Chambray (1606-1676), had been sent to Rome by the French government in 1640, and while there had become a friend of the painter Nicolas Poussin, as well as an admirer of the writings on architecture by Andrea Palladio, of which he made the first complete translation into French. Fréart?s publications in the early 1650s also included a comparative study of the classical orders of architecture and a translation of Leonardo da Vinci?s treatise on painting, and by 1662 he had become a recognised authority on all artistic topics. Here he identifies the elements of painting as invention, proportion, colour, expression and composition, and discusses the work both of painters of antiquity and of Raphael, Durer, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and, notably, Poussin (pp 121-5). Since his book was printed and published in Le Mans, rather than in Paris, it is somewhat uncommon. Copies of it are often found bound up with Fréart?s translation into French of Euclid?s treatise on perspective, published in Le Mans in the following year (e.g. the De Vitry copy, Sotheby 10-11 April 2002, lot 395, which seems to have lacked two leaves at the end carrying the ?Privilege du Roy?, present in our copy), but our copy is in a contemporary binding and must have been bound separately from the start. 4to. (22) + 134 + (6)pp. Contemporary mottled calf, neatly rebacked and repaired at outer corners. Old ink ownership inscription of H. (?) Pons. A good, fresh copy. N° de réf. du libraire 13596

Description du livre : Paris: Chez Joubert, [1675]., 1675. Oblong folio (9 4/8 x 18 inches). Engraved allegorical title-page (trimmed and laid down), and 24 numbered engraved plates (some browning and spotting). 19th-century calf backed marbled paper boards (extremities a bit worn). Provenance: from the library of H.R.H. 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.
