      "Vista a volo d'uccello del giardino di Villa d'Este. Esemplare nel terzo stato di tre, con lindirizzo Joannes Dominicus de Rubeis Formis. Per la prima volta pubblicata nel 1573 da Antonio Lafreri, l'opera viene dedicata da Etienne Duperac a Caterina de' Medici. Alla morte del Lafreri la lastra venne ereditata dal nipote Stefano Suchetti che la cedette (1581) a Paolo Graziani e quindi a Pietro de Nobili, autore di una ristampa (1586 circa). La terza stesura della lastra è curata da Gian Domenico de Rossi. L'opera figura nel ""Indice delle Stampe De' Rossi"" redatto da Lorenzo Filippo nel 1735, prima della vendita delle matrici alla Calcografia Camerale. L'opera è descritta a p. 32, n. 6, come ""Veduta del Giardino di Tivoli del Cardinal d'Este, intagliata in acqua forte in foglio papale per traverso. Baiocchi 15"".

A second issue of the plate was made by Pietro de Nobili (1586 ca.) that bought the plate from the Lafreri's heirs (Stefano Duchetti and then Paolo Graziani). The third issue is by Domenico de Rossi. The plate is included in the catalogue ""Indice delle Stampe De' Rossi"" by Lorenzo Filippo (1735), described (p. 32, n. 6) as ""Veduta del Giardino di Tivoli del Cardinal d'Este, intagliata in acqua forte in foglio papale per traverso.

        Histoire de la Guerre qui c'est passée entre les Vénitiens et la Saincte Ligue, contre les Turcs, pour l'isle de Cypre, ès années 1570, 1571 et 1572, faicte en latin par Pierre Bizare, et mise en françoys par F. de Belle-Forest (.).

      - Paris, Nicolas Chesneau, 1573 In-8° (168x110 mm), plein vélin ivoire à rabats de l'époque, (1) f. de titre, (46), 286 p., (1) f. bl. Première édition française, dans la traduction de François de Belleforest, "plus rare que l'édition latine originale publiée à Bâle la même année" (Blackmer). Important représentant de l’historiographie humaniste, converti au protestantisme, Pietro Bizzari (1530 - 1584) vécut et exerça des activités dans plusieurs pays européens puis entra au service de l’électeur Auguste de Saxe sur la recommandation de Philipp Melanchthon. Cette histoire de la guerre de Chypre traite de la quatrième guerre vénéto-ottomane qui opposa, de 1570 à 1573, l'Empire ottoman à la République de Venise appuyée par la Sainte-Ligue. Elle demeure l’une des bonnes sources contemporaines sur le sujet, l’auteur ayant eu accès à des documents inédits et de première main. Une carte annoncée à verso du titre ne figure qu’à un très petit nombre d’exemplaire. (Cf. Atabey 110-111. Blackmer, 147. Brunet, II, col. 1956 qui signale que cette édition est "rare".

Very rare edition of the well-known German "Lobwasser Psalter", here published in the Netherlands (in the original German) and first published at Leipzig in 1573, including, with its own title-page but clearly published together, a hymnbook and catechism with translations, adaptations and texts by Martin Luther and Johannes Habermann (1516-1590).It is splendidly bound in contemporary Dutch richly gold-tooled red morocco. The binding uses 4 stamps (86/87, 106, 121 and 128) and 1 roll (XXXII) found in the stock of the so-called "Double Drawer Handle Bindery", active 1697-1742. The roll was later used by the so-called "Art Book Bindery" (III), active 1705-1741 and the "Houbraken Group" (III), active 1708-1721. This last used two more stamps that appear on the present binding (9 and 29), so the attribution remains uncertain, but since the two later binderies were not active until seven years after publication and the Drawer Handle Bindery is known for its bindings for the Wetstein firm, that association seems the most likely. This bindery is considered "the most important Amsterdam workshop of the eighteenth century" (Storm van Leeuwen).In very good condition, with only a few small spots or stains. Binding chipped along the extremities, most heavily at the head and foot of the spine, but otherwise good.

        La Sfera di Proclo Liceo. (with) Trattato dell’Uso della Sfera.(with)PICCOLOMINI, Alessandro. Della Grandezza della Terra e dell’Acqua. Venice, Giordano Ziletti, 1561.

      Giunti 1573 - FIRST EDITION of first two works, second of the last. Small 4to. pp. (viii) 55 (i) 33 (iii) and ff. (iv) 43 (i). Roman and Italic letter. Woodcut crowned globe with five Medici spheres on first title page, woodcut sphere device on second, woodcut comet within baroque frame with putti device on last, Greek inscription from the Platonic Academy within ornamental frame preceding first text, woodcut initials and small diagrams throughout. Light age-yellowing, very light foxing to one gathering, a couple of small marginal ink spots, light thumbing in a couple of places. A very good, well-margined copy in contemporary Venetian green morocco, panel with small central arms, corner pieces, within two foliate and tendril outer borders, all in blind, spine in five compartments, small blind decoration to each, slight worn at head and tail, remains of paper label, speckled edges. First edition of Egnatio Danti’s translation of Proclus’ ‘Sfera’ and his companion treatise on the use of the sphere, and second edition of Piccolomini’s treatise on the proportions respectively of water and dry land of the Earth. According to Graesse there was a 1540 edition of the latter, but from Ziletti’s dedication a Venetian senator, it is clear that the book was first published in 1558. Houzeau & Lancaster lists a ‘very rare’ 1571 first edition of Danti’s translation and treatise, but it is probably confusing the latter with Danti’s commentary upon the translation of Sacrobosco’s ‘Tractatus de Spaera’ made by his grandfather Pier Vincenzo Rainaldi (called ‘Dante’ after the author of the ‘Divine Comedy’) and first published in 1571. Egnatio Danti (1536-86), referred to as ‘Cosmographer of the Grand Duke of Tuscany’ on these title-pages, was an outstanding scientist who taught at Pisa and Bologna, drew maps for Cosimo de’ Medici, designed a number of astronomical instruments (two of which were set up in Santa Maria Novella, Florence), brought about the reformation of the Gregorian calendar after having detected a 11-day error, wrote the first book to be published in Italy on the astrolabe (1569), and was appointed Papal Cosmographer and Mathematician by Gregory XIII (1580). His translation of Proclus’ ‘Sfera’, dedicated to Isabella de’ Medici, opens with a two-page life of Proclus and contains long and detailed annotations, often flanked by diagrams, for each of the fifteen chapters of the book. It ends with a five-page essay on how to study the stars without using scientific instruments. Proclus (412-485), illustrious Neo-Platonic philosopher from Constantinople, was also a fine astronomer who expounded the division of the celestial sphere with modern accuracy. Danti’s treatise on the use of the sphere is divided into thirty short chapters dealing with, i. a., how to make a sphere, determine the various positions of the sun and stars and the corresponding times of day and night, and study the Zodiac. The proportions of water and dry land was a much debated topic of the time. Like Aristotle, Leonardo was convinced that the quantity of water exceeded that of the land, and that a great quantity of water was collected in caverns underneath the surface of the Earth. Piccolomini was one of the first scientists to maintain the opposite. In his fifteen-chapter essay he provides detailed explanations of why, from the antiquity, the amount of water on the Earth had been thought to exceed that of the land, followed by the exposition of his own revolutionary theory. Alessandro Piccolomini (1508-1578), a typical Renaissance polymath, wrote poems along with scientific, philosophical and legal works. An important scientific collection in a very attractive binding, almost certainly Venetian. Both the Danti and the Piccolomini are also of interest as early Americana. BM STC It.

Et una lettera alla illustre signora, la signora Barbara Callina. Nella quale, oltra le lodi di essa signora si racconta donde i filosofi antichi hebbero cognitione di Dio; e quai credettero,che fossero i principij delle cose. Del Selvaggio Academico Occulto, presidente dignissimo dell'Academia il Nebuloso. Brescia, Borella e Sabbio, 1566. 8vo. (32) ll. With a woodcut emblem on the title-page. (I:). RARE FIRST EDITION of this important treatise on the theory of "imprese', preceded only by Paolo Giovio's Dialogo dell'imprese militari e amorose (Roma, 1555). This form of personalized emblem date from the middle of the 15th century in the "revers de médailles' of Pisanello. The "impresa' was essentially in the same format as the common emblem, but it lacked a subscription and had various peculiar rules of construction. It consisted of a motto and a picture in mutual dependence, neither of which can function meaningfully without the other (cf. D. Drysdall, The Emblem according to the Italian"Impresa' Theorists, in: "The Emblem in Renaissance and Baroque Europe. Tradition and Variety", A. Adams e A.J. Harper, eds., Leiden 1992, pp. 22-32). Also Ammirato's treatise is written in form of a dialogue, the interlocutors being Nino de Nini, bishop of Potenza, the Florentine man of letters Alfonso Cambi, the physician and botanist Bartolomeo Maranta and the man who gave his name to the dialogue, the Neapolitan poet and playwright Bernardino Rota (1508-1575). The work is dedicated to Vincenzo Carafa and contains apart a comprehensive theory of the "impresa' also a very detailed description of the forty-six "imprese' Rota had depicted in his villa in memory of his deceased wife, Porzia Capece (he had already published a volume of poems dedicated to her in 1560). These "imprese' demonstrate how they can be used to construct a visitable space, which functions to a degree as a theatre of memory (cf. G. Arbizzoni, Imprese e poesia nel "Rota' di Scipione Ammirato, in: "Un nodo di parole e di cose. Storia e fortuna delle imprese", Roma, 2002, pp. 37-57, and A. Maggi, Identità e impresa rinascimentale, Ravenna, 1998, pp. 135-146; M. Favaro, Sulla concezione dell'impresa in Scipione Ammirato, in: "Italianistica", XXXVIII/2, 1998, pp. 285-298). Scipione Ammirato, historian, poet, novelist and playwright, was born at Lecce in the kingdom of Naples. His father intending him for the profession of law, sent him to study at Naples, but his own decided preference for literature prevented him from fulfilling his father's wishes. In Naples he frequented several literary circles and became a friend of the poets Bernardino Rota and Angelo di Costanza. Later he entered the church, resided for a time at Venice and was afterwards engaged in the service of Pope Pius IV. He took refuge in Lecce after a turbulent love affair and founded there the Accademia dei Trasformati. In 1569 he went to Florence, where he was fortunate in securing the patronage and support of Duke Cosimo I., who gave him a residence at the Medici Palace and the Villa Zopaja on the understanding that he should write his Istorie Fiorentine (which were published in 1600 and 1647 respectively). In 1595 he was made canon of the cathedral of Florence. Among his other works, some of which were only published after his death, are genealogies of noble families of Naples and Florence (cf. A. Vallone, Scipione Ammirato poeta, in: "Studi e ricerche di letteratura salentina", Lecce, 1959, pp. 29-96; and R. de Mattei, Il pensiero politico di Scipione Ammirato, Milano, 1963, passim; and U. Congedo, La vita e le opere di Scipione Ammirato, Trani, 1904, passim). Edit 16, CNCE 1565; Index Aureliensis 104.844 ; Universal STC, no. 809100; G. Arbizzoni, Emblems as imprese, in: "The Italian Emblem", D. Manuseto e E.L. Calogero, eds., (Glasgow, 2007), p. 13; D.S. Caldwell, The Sixteenth-Century Italian "Impresa' in Theory and Practice, (New York, 2004), pp. 43-57. (II:).RARE FIRST EDITION of Palazzi's disquisitions on "imprese' posthumously published by his brother-in-law, Pietro Viti da Fano. The work consists of four lectures delivered over a period of four days probably toward the end of 1569 and the beginning of 1570 in the Accademia degli Assorditi of Urbino. The work is greatly indebted to Luca Contile's Ragionamento sopra la proprietà delle imprese (Pavia, 1574). In his first Discorso Palazzi says that he was asked by the academy to speak on "imprese' and also provides an explanation of the "impresa' of the Assorditi. In the second Discorso he makes an accurate distinction between livery, "impresa' and emblem and deals with other kinds of symbolic image, such as ciphers and coat-of-arms (cf. S. Maffei, Giovio's 'Dialogo delle imprese militari e amorose' and the Museum, in: "The Italian Emblem", D. Mansueto e E.L. Calogero, eds., Glasgow, 2007, p. 36). In the third Discorso he presents his definition of the "impresa' and deplores the blunting of it in recent times (cf. S. Volterrani, All' 'Hostaria del mal tempo', il realismo emblematico di Padre Antonio Mirandola, in: "The Italian Emblem", D. Mansueto e E.L. Calogero, eds., Glasgow, 2007, pp. 192-193). The final lecture deals mainly with the 'corpi' of 'imprese': where to find them, which ones are suitable, and so forth (cf. D. Caldwell, The Sixteenth Century Italian 'Impresa' in Theory and Practice, New York, 2004, pp. 166-168). Giovanni Andrea Palazzi obtained his first education at Fano and later taught humanities at Gubbio, Imola and Urbino, where he was tutor to Lavinia della Rovere, daughter of Guidobaldo II. He wrote a eulogy of the humanists of Imola (1573). Some of his verses are found in the anthology Per donne romane rime di diversi, edited by Muzio Manfredi (Bologna, 1575). Probably he was one of the founders of the Accademia degli Assorditi of Urbino (cf. G. Arbizzoni, Note su Giovanni Andrea Palazzi e i 'Discorsi sopra le imprese', in: "Res publica litterarum", VI, 1983, pp. 9-18). Edit 16, CNCE32444; Adams, P-76; Universal STC, no. 846131; M. Praz, Studies in Seventeenth Century Imagery, (Roma, 1975), p. 443; G. Savarese e A. Gareffi, La letteratura delle immagini nel Cinquecento, (Roma, 1980), pp. 240-248. (III:) RARE ORIGINAL EDITION of this literary exercise written by a member of the Accademia degli Occulti of Brescia. It contains an eulogy on forests, the nickname of the author being "Il Selvaggio'(the Savage) and a letter addressed to the noblewoman Barbara Callini (d. 1568), who was an influential patron of the academy, who was honored with several poems written by members of it (cf. A. Maggi, Identità e impresa rinascimentale, Ravenna, 1998, pp. 97-115). Little is known about the life of Cosimo Lauro. He was a native of Brescia, wrote a history of the bishops and noble families (never published) of that town and was an active member of the Accademia degli Occulti, founded in the early 1560s, which promoted for nearly twenty years intellectual activities ranging from poetry to mathematical debates. For the academy Lauro wrote a kind of statutory document, Ragionamento fatto dal Seluaggio academico nel nascimento dell'Academia delli Occolti (1565) (cf. L. Bisello, "Di minute scintille un grande fuoco'. Parabola storica e testuale dell'Accademia degli Occulti, in: "Cenacoli: circoli e gruppi letterari, artistici, spirituali", F. Zambon, ed., Milano, 2007, pp. 221-245). Edit 16, CNCE 26867; Universal STC, no. 837639..

Carta tratta da "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Ortels, latinizzato successivamente, fu appunto questa: prima d'allora la produzione cartografica era stata irregolare, locale a livello di produzione ed i pochi atlanti, i cosiddetti "Atlanti Lafreriani" erano costituiti su richiesta raccogliendo carte di alcune zone, ignorando le altre. Ortelius riunì in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al .

      Antverpiae, apud Ioannem Bellerum, 1573. - in-8. 12ff. 349pp. 1f. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure postérieure restaurée). Edition Originale. Dans cet ouvrage rédigé au milieu des troubles qui agitèrent la Belgique et les Pays Bas contre la domination espagnole, Simon Verepaeus, ou Vereept (1522-1598), dessine le modèle pédagogique complet d'un établissement scolaire et de son fonctionnement. L'ouvrage est divisé en trois parties: la première décrit le rôle des enseignants ainsi que les devoirs et les droits des élèves (étude, discipline, jeux); la seconde établit le programme des études humanistiques et littéraires, réparti sur sept années, avec notamment l'enseignement du théâtre et la mise en scène de petits spectacles; enfin la troisième partie évoque le programme de l'éducation religieuse dispensée au cours de la même période. "Verreept, sans être lui-même un jésuite, était un sympathisant de leur programme, mais il était aussi un professeur entièrement gagné aux méthodes pédagogiques déjà en usage aux Pays-Bas ( ). Son Institutionum Scholasticarum libri tres (Anvers, 1573) intégrait, et louait, le cursus jésuite qu'il avait recueilli à partir des programmes non publiés de neuf collèges différents" (Moss).

      USTC 659146 (7 copies); VD16, A2067 (8 copies); cf. Adams 852 (German ed. of 1573/74); Gay, Bibl. de Afrique et Arabe 2603 (other eds.); Howgego A76 (German eds. of 1566 and 1576). Second German edition in the present form, extensively illustrated, of "the first detailed description of Ethiopia" [Abyssinia] (Howgego), based largely on his voyages in the years 1515-1527, which included a six-year stay in Ethiopia. Álvarez (ca. 1485?-1536/41), a Portuguese Franciscan missionary, travelled to Ethiopia as chaplain on the voyage of Rui de Lima. He gives us the earliest detailed account of Ethiopia to be based in part on first-hand knowledge and therefore provides our most important primary source for the history, culture and topography of Ethiopia before it was invaded by Islamic troops under Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi of Somalia in 1529. Ethiopia at this time had large Christian and Islamic communities and the woodcut illustrations show court scenes of Ottoman and Christian rulers, siege and battle scenes and ships.The second work is a German translation of Historiae adversus Paganos, a history of the world written by Paulus Orosius (ca. 375-418/23) of Galaecia. Orosius had travelled along the entire Mediterranean coast of Africa, visiting Alexandria in Egypt, so his accounts of those regions carry special authority. The third work is largely a translation of the text of Abraham Ortelius's world atlas, Theatrum orbis terrarum, first published in Latin in 1570 and expanded over the years. The three works were clearly intended for publication together, but each has its own title-page.With an early owner's name cut out of the title-page, another struck through and replaced by a 1703 gift inscription, and a woodcut armorial bookplate on the pastedown. With an excision in the title-page to remove an owner's name the margins of the title-page somewhat tattered, an occasional browned sheet and some small worm holes and marginal waterstains, but further in good condition. An essential source for 16th-century Ethiopia.

      Venice: Presso Giovanni Varisco, e Compagni; Per Giovanni Varisco, & compagni,, 1573 & 1570. Two works bound in one volume, octavo (205 x 147 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, manuscript title on spine and bottom edge of edge block, deerskin ties. Ff. 30 misnumbered 20. 47 full-page woodcut star maps, 68 full-page woodcut tables, woodcut diagrams and historiated initials. Three or four small wormholes to spine and joints, scattered light foxing and old marginal dampstaining. An excellent copy. Eighth edition of the first printed star atlas, originally published in 1540. All early editions are rare. De la sfera del mondo is a traditional Ptolemaic-Aristotelian geocentric cosmography, but its appendix, De le stelle fisse, "represents the first printed star atlas, containing maps of the stars as opposed to simple pictures of constellations, and introducing the practice of identifying stars by letter, a method later adopted and expanded by Bayer" (Norman). Piccolomini was an early popularizer of science who wrote in the vernacular to extend scientific knowledge beyond the confines of church and university. Later Bishop of Patrae, Piccolomini belonged to the notable Sienese ecclesiastical family that produced two popes, including the great Renaissance figure Pope Pius II.

Contemporary blind-tooled leather over wooden boards, red edges, and a pair of brass fastenings (1 clasp and anchor plate lacking), the catchplate on a leather strap and the catchplates and clasp with engraved decoration.

      USTC 659146 (7 copies); VD16, A2067 (8 copies); cf. Adams 852 (German ed. of 1573/74); Gay, Bibl. de Afrique et Arabe 2603 (other eds.); Howgego A76 (German eds. of 1566 and 1576). Second German edition in the present form, extensively illustrated, of "the first detailed description of Ethiopia" [Abyssinia] (Howgego), based largely on his voyages in the years 1515-1527, which included a six-year stay in Ethiopia. Álvarez (ca. 1485?-1536/41), a Portuguese Franciscan missionary, travelled to Ethiopia as chaplain on the voyage of Rui de Lima. He gives us the earliest detailed account of Ethiopia to be based in part on first-hand knowledge and therefore provides our most important primary source for the history, culture and topography of Ethiopia before it was invaded by Islamic troops under Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi of Somalia in 1529. Ethiopia at this time had large Christian and Islamic communities and the woodcut illustrations show court scenes of Ottoman and Christian rulers, siege and battle scenes and ships.The second work is a German translation of Historiae adversus Paganos , a history of the world written by Paulus Orosius (ca. 375-418/23) of Galaecia. Orosius had travelled along the entire Mediterranean coast of Africa, visiting Alexandria in Egypt, so his accounts of those regions carry special authority. The third work is largely a translation of the text of Abraham Ortelius's world atlas, Theatrum orbis terrarum , first published in Latin in 1570 and expanded over the years. The three works were clearly intended for publication together, but each has its own title-page.With an early owner's name cut out of the title-page, another struck through and replaced by a 1703 gift inscription, and a woodcut armorial bookplate on the pastedown. With an excision in the title-page to remove an owner's name the margins of the title-page somewhat tattered, an occasional browned sheet and some small worm holes and marginal waterstains, but further in good condition. An essential source for 16th-century Ethiopia.

        Europa Totius Orbis Partium amoenissima commoda iam recens absolutaque Descriptio

      Anversa 1573 - Acquaforte e bulino, prima del 1573, firmata in lastra nel cartiglio da Joannes e Lucas Doetecum. Esemplare nel secondo stato, pubblicato nella prima edizione del 1578. Magnifica prova, con bellissima coloritura coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Al verso, testo latino e numero di pagina in carattere romano, V. Gerard de Jode, era cartografo, incisore, tipografo ed editore nella città di Anversa, attivo all’incirca nello stesso periodo di Ortelius. Nel 1547 ottenne il privilegio per l’attività editoriale, tuttavia non fu mai in grado di rappresentare un’effettiva minaccia per il suo rivale in affari. Per ironia della sorte, pubblicò il famoso Mappamondo del rivale, in otto fogli, nel 1564. Il suo atlante più importante, lo Speculum Orbis Terrarum, oggi estremamente raro, non poté essere pubblicato fino al 1578, ovvero otto anni dopo il Theatrum Orbis Terraum di Ortelius, che aveva ottenuto il monopolio per l’editoria cartografica ad Anversa. Le carte del De Jode furono finemente tradotte su rame nel tipico stile fiammingo dai fratelli Joannes e Lucas van Doetecum, i migliori intagliatori di mappe del tempo. Alla morte di Gerard, il figlio Cornelis pubblicò, nel 1593, una ristampa accresciuta dell’atlante. - FIRST EDITIONS WITH CONTEMPORY COLOUR - Etching with engraving, before 1573, signed on plate in the title by Joannes and Lucas Doetecum. Example in the second state, published in the first edition of 1578. Magnificent proof, contemporary colour, with margins, in perfect condition. In verse, Latin text and page number in roman font, V. Gerard de Jode, was a cartographer, engraver, printer and publisher in Antwerp, active around the same period of Ortelius. In 1547 he obtained the privilege for the publishing business, but was never able to represent a real threat to his business rival. Ironically, he published a major rival of the Globe, in eight sheets, in 1564. His most important atlas, Speculum Orbis Terrarum, now extremely rare, could not be released until 1578, ie eight years after the Theatrum Orbis Terraum of Ortelius, who had obtained a monopoly for the Cartographic Publishing Antwerp. The maps of De Jode were finely translated copper in typical Flemish brothers Joannes and Lucas van Doetecum, the best engravers of maps of the time. On the death of Gerard, the son Cornelis published in 1593, a reprint of the atlas increased. The New Hollstein, The Doetecum Family part III, p. 37, 561.

        I Santi Rocco, Pietro, Paolo e Sebastiano

      1573 - Bulino, 1573, firmato e datato in lastra in basso a destra '1573 / Horatius Aquilanus formis'. In basso a sinistra 'Pompeo Aqlano inven'. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "ancora nel cerchio" con sottilissimi margini o rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. La stampa devozionale deriva da un disegno di Pompeo Cesura detto Pompeo dell’Aquila. Raffigura al centro i santi protettori di Roma, Pietro e Paolo, accompagnati dai loro attributi canonici, rispettivamente il libro e le chiavi e il libro con la spada. San Pietro è affiancato a sinistra da San Rocco, i cui attributi distintivi sono il cane, il bastone e la piaga. Al fianco desto di S. Paolo è raffigurato, legato ad un albero, San Sebastiano. La rappresentazione di S. Sebastiano è piuttosto inusuale perché, anche se legato ad un albero, non viene mostrato trafitto dalle frecce. Al verso timbro della collezione A C. de Poggi (Lugt 617). Bellissimo esemplare di questa rarissima incisione. Engraving, 1573, lettered lower left 'Pompeo Aqlano inven' at right ' 1573 / Horatius Aquilanus formis'. After Pompeo dell’Aquila. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with "anchor in a circle" watermark, with very thin margins or trimmed to the paltemark, prefect condition. The devotional engraving depicts Peter and Paul, the patron saints of Rome, flanked by Roch or Rochus of Montpellier and Sebastian, protectors against the plague. The print is derived from a design by Pompeo Cesura. The apostles carry their attributes: a key, a sword, and a book. Paul looks down towards a dead tree with a living shoot, a symbol of the Resurrection. On the left, Rochus, accompanied by a dog and watched over by a flying angel, holds a pilgrim's staff. The representation of Sebastian is unusual in that, although bound to a tree, he is not shown pierced with arrows. The print is derived from a design by Pompeo Cesura. Ex collection of A C. de Poggi (Lugt 617). A great example of this very rare work. Bartsch, XVII p. 13 n. 15; TIB, 34, p. 29, no. 15; Nagler 15. Dimensioni 217 130mm
