         De regno Dalmatiae et Croatiae libri sex.

      Amsterdam, apud Ioannem Blaeu, 1666. In-folio; 2 cc., 474 pp., 1 c.b., 5 carte geografiche ripiegate, 2 prospetti con alberi genealogici; testo su due colonne. Cartonatura rustica coeva, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Uniforme brunitura limitata allo specchio del testo, dovuta alla qualit... della carta. Bell'esemplare in barbe, assai genuino. Prima edizione, rara, di quella che Š considerata l?opera fondante della storiografia moderna della Croazia e della Dalmazia. Il volume Š illustrato da 5 grandi tavole geografiche ripiegate che rappresentano le coste dalmate e croate, e da due grandi alberi genealogici. L'opera, scritta in chiave filo-veneziana, rimase testo di riferimento, per secoli insuperato, per la storia della regione, dalle invasioni barbariche fino al periodo veneziano. Fu compilata a partire da una documentazione di fonti storiche verificate e consultate in originale negli archivi di Spalato, Zara, Arbe, Sebenico, Venezia e Roma. In fine troviamo la prima edizione della libera traduzione di Marko Maruli?, dal croato in latino, della Hrvatska kronika - Cronaca croata (estratto dal Ljetopis popa Dukljanina - Annali del prete Docleate ), la pi-- antica storia croata. Ivan Lu?i? (1604-1679) nato a Tra--, fece studi giuridici a Padova e si divise poi nella sua attivit... di storico tra il suo paese d'origine e l'Italia. Ebbe alcune difficolt... a trovare un editore che intraprendesse l'impresa della stampa: alla fine venne prodotta ad Amsterdam da Blaeu, incontrato a Roma e dei cui nipoti, Lucio aveva curato l'educazione.

         Regni Daniae accuratissima delineatio

      Artist: Janssonius/Hondius H Johann ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1666 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 45 x 56; - description: Map shows total Denmark; - vita of the artist: Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with English County Maps, a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name Atlas Major, there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of most of the cities of the world (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German.

         Copia de la Carta que escribió desde Sevilla al Excelentissimo Señor Marques de Aytona, recién llegado de Indias, en que le da noticia (según se lo avia pedido con instancias devotas) de los trbajos, sucesos, y progresos de su viage, y primera Mission de Indias

      - Carabantes´ relation of his voyage to Caracas & Cumaná. 1666. Seville. Imprenta de Juan Gomez de Blas. In 4to (202 mm x 147 mm). 19. Blue wrappers. First folio soiled with marginal tears eventually touching a few letters, foxing, corners dog-eared. One of the few documents available on the progress of the Capuchin Missions in Venezuela; the imprint contains valuable and rare notices on the manners & customs of the natives (mainly Caribes, Guamonteyes, Chaimas, Tapies, Azaguas & Cores) and with notices of the happenings and relations of Carabantes´ voyage to the region. Carabantes (1628 – 1694) was one of the first Capuchin missionaries in America; although his name was Velazquez, he changed his name for that of his home town in 1645, when entering the order. In 1657, he arrived in the Island of Margarita (Venezuela), from there he went on to Caracas and Cumana, where he was able to evangelize the Caribes, a tribe notorious for its cruelty and ferocity. As often, the missionary learned the natives tongue and wrote subsequently a vocabulary for the missionaries. His stay in the region lasted for 9 years, after which he had to travel back to Spain to defend his fellow missionaries; after that, he planned to return to the Americas, but his superiors decided to keep him in Spain, where death found him short after. It is attributed to him the conversion of five “caciques”. The same year, three editions were made, two in Seville (one by Gomez de Blás and one by Francisco Sanchez) and according to Maggs, one in Granada, also by Francisco Sanchez; we found no bibliographic reference to the Granada edition. The Sanchez edition contains 12 leaves, meanwhile, our edition contains 19 –we do not know if the information is the same as ours seems expanded. Exceedingly rare, no copies have been sold at auction and there are no records of it having been offered after 1922 by Maggs. Palau, 43614. Not in Sabin. Not in Church. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Villa Pamphilia eiusque palatium, cum suis prospectibus, statuae, fontes, vivaria, theatra, areolae, plantarum, viarumque ordines, cum eiusdem villae absoluta Delineatione

      Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi [Io. Iocabi de Rubeis], Roma, Italia - No date. Likely a first edition from around the time of the death of Camillo Pamphili in 1666, but possibly dating from the 1670s. Approximately 16.25 x 11.5 inches. Bound in later, 18th century [?] brown quarter calf, with somewhat faded gilt-stamped lettering and decorative devices to the spine, and with complementary marbled paper hardboards in tones of dark and light greens. Spine and boards much rubbed. Large losses at board corners. Hinges still strong and text block firmly bound in. With illustrated half title page, portrait page of "Camillus Pamphilius," and 60 full-page copper plates by Dominique Barrière, including 41 statues and 19 busts from the buildings and gardens of the Villa Pamphili. The complete edition believed issued with 84 engraved plates. The present copy lacking full title page, two-page dedication, 9 plates of statues, and 3 of busts, and also lacking 10 plates [5 wide-angle landscape, 1 plan or layout, and 4 fountain views] by Giovanni Battista Falda. Rag content, hand-made pages. Pages on the whole quite sturdy though thickness varies from page to page. Half title page with copper engraved title vignette, with the Pamphili coat of arms. Portrait of Camillus Pamphilius by: "Gio. Batista Gaulus Genouen pinx. (may be Giovanni Battista Gaulli also known as Baciccio, or Baciccia), L. Visscher Sculp." The 2nd statue plate, Venus Marina Genetrix Alma, charmingly hand-colored. Iulia Augusta plate with tidewater mark at upper margin. Apollo plate with tidewater mark at upper margin and into plate. Occasional light to moderate foxing and/or soiling to plates, mostly restricted to the margins. Quite a few plates impressively clean and free of significant demerits. Pastedowns and opposite FEPs very age-toned. First several pages dog-earred at top and bottom corners, last several at bottom corners. A Very Good Minus copy in a Fair Only binding. Rare in any condition. According to Dumbarton Oaks: "The Pamphili were a Roman dynasty. Giovanni Battista Pamphili [1574-1655] became Pope Innocent X in 1644. His nephew, Camillo Pamphili [1622-1666], was a Cardinal." Christie's comments: "The Villa Pamphili was the last and most magnificent of the Roman villas built in the 16th- and 17th- centuries: the construction of the villa, under the architect G.F. Grimaldi and the sculptor Algardi, lasted from 1644 to 1648, and the gardens were laid out in 1650. The house included some of the finest stucco work of the 17th century, and a main feature of the gardens was the collection of Roman and Greek statuary, displayed in niches in the facade of the villa and in the grounds. Shortly after this collection was installed, Pamphili commissioned Barrière -- one of the pre-eminent architectural draughtsmen in Rome in the 1640 and 1650s - to create copper plates (some of which survive) showing views of the Villa and a number of the statues; this commission was probably executed by Barrière (together with Carlo Orlandi, thought to be an assistant or student) between 1652 and 1657, when payments to them are recorded. After Camillo Pamphili's death in 1666, the plates were inherited by his son Giambattista, who presumably arranged the publication of Villa Pamphilia by de Rossi." Wikipedia states: "Barrière was born at Marseilles in about 1622. He spent most of his career in Rome, where he engraved a considerable number of plates, after Claude and other landscape painters, as well as other subjects. They are neatly etched in the manner of Stefano della Bella. He died in Rome in 1678." Grazie tanto a Furlanetto Stampe Antiche per il seguenti: [Abbiamo] il piacere di proporre la vendita di alcune stampe antiche di statue di Villa Pamphili, una prestigiosa villa romana, tratte da un'opera dedicata all'edificio e al suo parco. L'imponente costruzione principale fu edificata in pochi anni per onorare l'ascesa al Soglio Pontificio di Innocenzo X, al secolo Giovanni Battista Pamphili. Fu suo nipote ad ordinare l'arricchimento della villa barocca [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Richly illustrated first edition (the only early and only unabridged edition) of Valentijn's monumental study of the East Indies and especially Ambon, where he lived for more than 15 years. Besides being the most comprehensive and authoritative source about the Dutch colonial empire in the East for centuries, its literary qualities were praised even by modern critics. The work is also of particular interest for Australia as it "for the first time gave a complete and accurate account with maps and drawings of Tasman's first voyage", including information based on manuscripts now lost. Valentijn is "remarkably complete; the book is therefore a goldmine overflowing with information; he brought together everything accessible in his day . [and] includes much information that one can find nowhere else; for that reason it remains indispensable" (NNBW). Valentijn (1666-1727) went to the East Indies as a minister of the church in 1685 and settled in Ambon. With 18th-century(?) owner's inscription in each volume, partly erased or covered. Lacking the engraved portrait of Mattheus de Haan in volume 4 and an errata leaf in volume 3. Some occasional browning, occasional small spots and stains, and with a tear in a some of the folding plates.

After publishing several general atlases himself he became the associate of Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints.In 1647 Sanson accused the Jesuit Philippe Labbe of plagiarizing him in his Pharus Galliae Antiquae; in 1648 he lost his eldest son Nicolas, killed during the Fronde. Among the friends of his later years was the great Condé. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien (d. 1708) and Guillaume (d. 1703), succeeded him as geographers to the king.In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sanson's maps in an Atlas nouveau. See also the 18th century editions of some of Sanson's works on Delamarche under the titles of Atlas de géographie ancienne and Atlas britannique; and the Catalogue des cartes et livres de géographie de Sanson (1702).

TWO WORKS BOUND TOGETHER 1666 & 1614. No. 1: Cortese, Opere, 6 volumes in 1, each with separate pagination, register and dated title page, plus half-title and general title page at the front listing the 6 works in Neapolitan dialect on the reverse. 12mo, approximately 140 x 70 mm, 5½ x 2¾ inches, each title page has a woodcut decorative border, a few pictorial tailpieces, similar borders to the "argomienti" of the canti, pages: Volume I, [10], 96; Volume II, 130; Volume III, [2], 96; Volume IV, 71 [1]; Volume V: 80 misnumbered 84 with a jump in pagination from page 72 to 77, catchwords correct, nothing is missing; Volume VI, 72, bound in full old vellum, gilt lettering within gilt border to spine. Vellum slightly stained, small old ink stain to upper outer corner of first 7 leaves of Volume I, many leaves lightly age-browned, occasional small pale stain, neat ink note in 1 margin, small ink blot on last page of Volume III, text still legible. A very good tight copy of a scarce work. Giulio Cesare Cortese (1575 - c.1640) was born and lived most of his life in Naples. He studied law but became a courtier in Spain and Florence and was known as the author of poems and prose works in both the Tuscan and the Neapolitan dialect. With Giambattista Basile whom he had known as a boy in Naples he was responsible for laying the foundations for the artistic and literary dignity of the Neapolitan language. Despite the statement in the title that this is the fifteenth edition of the Opere, no earlier editions of either the collected edition or the single works are listed in the Italian libraries (ICCU). In the Bibliotheque Nationale there is a made up edition dated 1645-1652 published by Cavallo in Naples. In our edition the title pages are all dated 1666. It contains the following works: [1]: Micco Passaro nnammorato. Poema eroico di Giulio Cesare Cortese; [2]: La rosa fauola di Giulio Cesare Cortese; [3]: La vaiasseide poema, di Giulio Cesare Cortese. Il pastor Sebeto, a compita perfettione ridotta, con gli argomenti, & alcune prose di Gian Alesio Abbattutis. Dedicata al potentissimo re de' venti; [4]: Li trauagliuse ammure de Ciullo, e Perna de Giulio Cesare Cortese; [5]: Viaggio di Parnaso poema, di Giulio Cesare Cortese; [6]: Lo cerriglio ncantato poema eroico di Giulio Cesare Cortese. Brunet, II, page 314, cites only our edition of the Opere but mentions an edition of La Rosa of 1621 and an edition of La Vaiasseide of 1628. BOUND WITH, No. 2: I CANTICI DI FIDENTIO GLOTTOCHRYSIO, et d'altri celeberrimi ludimagistri. Novamente impressi & locupletati. Dedicati alli Discepoli della Scola Fidentiaca. Vicenza, Domenico Amadio, 1614. Anonymous and generally attributed to the Vicenzan poet Camillo Scrofa (Scroffa). 12mo, Italian text, printer's pictorial device to title page, another different one to final page of anchor and fish, woodcut head and tailpieces, pages: (12), 119, (1). Title page a little spotted and laid down on old paper, upper and fore-edge margins slightly trimmed, couple of tiny inkspots to 2 pages, no loss of legibility, 2 tiny holes in margin of first text page. These Cantici belong to a minor genre of Italian poetry known as Fidentian which originated as a vehicle for homosexual themes that within the larger context of burlesque poetry have given rise to Burchiellesque and Bemesque poetry. Its initiator was Camillo Scroffa (1526-1565) who probably composed I Cantici di Fidentio when studying law (1545-50), and first published them in 1562 in an edition of some 29 pages. They are supposed to have been written by an "amorous pedant" Fidentio Glottochrysio who is hopelessly in love with the handsome Camillo Strozzi. The anthology amounts in the main to an anti-Petrarchan pamphlet, poking fun at well-worn conventions of love poetry, while at the same time it is a satire on the excessive preoccupation with classical antiquity into which the humanists had fallen, both from a linguistic standpoint and in view of their exaltation of the so-called Socratic love. What came to be known as Fidentian poetry - which is technically the opposite of macaronic poetry, which mixes vernacular elements into Latin, instead of vice versa - was cultivated even before the first authorized edition of the Cantici in 1562, and lasted until the beginning of the eighteenth century. With numerous additions from different poets this anthology was reprinted many times and was still in print in 1781. See, COPAC. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

         Volume of six rare opera libretti (five by Handel, one by Ariosti) all but one in first edition

      Thick octavo. Full contemporary ivory vellum with "Opern" within decorative rules at head of spine. With fine decorative woodcut device to titles and decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials throughout. All in three acts. CORIOLANUS [music by Attilio Ariosti 1666-1729] Cajo Marzio Coriolano, Drama. Da Representarsi Nel Regio Teatro d'Hay-Market, per La Reale Accademia di Musica. London: Printed by Tho. Wood in Little Britain, 1723. 1f. (recto half-title, verso blank), 1f. (recto title, verso blank), [v] (dedication to the Duchess of Newcastle by N. Haym), [iii] ("Argomento"), [iii] ("Argument"), [i] (named cast list in Italian), [i] (named cast list in English), [2]-79, [i] (blank) pp. With text in Italian and English on facing pages. Named cast includes Francesco Bernardi, "call'd Senesino," Francesca Cuzzoni, Margherita Durastanti, Anastasia Robinson, Giuseppe Boschi, Gordon, and Gaetano Berenstadt. First performed in London on February 19, 1723 to a libretto by Niccola Francesco Haym with music by Ariosti. ?First Edition (COPAC calls this a 2nd edition). No early editions located. Not in Sonneck. "At the beginning of 1720 [Ariosti] was in Paris for a state wedding, and he might have stayed there until a few months before the production of his Caio Marzio Coriolano in February 1723. This was by far the most successful of the operas he composed or reworked for the Royal Academy, and it was the only one revived in London. Its original success owed a great deal to the prima donna, Francesca Cuzzoni, who had made her sensational London début one month earlier (in Handel's Ottone), but it likewise owed much to Ariosti's expressive setting of Pariati's excellent libretto." Lowell Lindgren in Grove Music Online. OTTONE. [HWV 15] Ottone, Re di Germania. Drama. Da Rappresentarsi Nel Regio Teatro d'Hay-Market, per La Reale Accademia di Musica. London: Printed by Tho. Wood in Little Britain, 1723. 1f. (recto half-title, verso blank), 1f. (recto title, verso blank), [v] (dedication to the Count of Halifax by N. Haym), [i] ("Argomento), [i] ("Argument"), [i] (named cast list in Italian), [i] (named cast list in English), [2]-67, [i] (blank) pp. With text in Italian and English on facing pages. Named cast includes Francesco Bernardi (Senesino), Francesca Cuzzoni, Goschi, Margherita Durastanti, Gaetano Berenstatt, and Anastasia Robinson. First performed in London at the King's Theatre on January 12, 1723 to a libretto adapted by Nicola Francesco Haym from Stefano Benedetto Pallavicino's Teofane (1719, Dresden), First Edition. HWV p. 200. Sonneck p. 840. Dean p. 449. The first new opera in the Royal Academy of Music's fourth London season. "The most important event of the 1722-3 season as far as the public were concerned was the arrival of the soprano Francesca Cuzzoni, a worthy match to Senesino, and it was Handel's new opera Ottone in which she made her début." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online. TAMERLANO. [HWV 18] Tamerlano: Drama. Da Rappresentarsi nel Regio Teatro di Hay-Market, per La Reale Accademia di Musica. London: Printed and Sold at the King's Theatre in the Hay-Market, 1724. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), [iv] (dedication to the Duke of Rutland by N. Haym), [i] ("To the Reader" in Italian), [ii] (("To the Reader" in English), [i] (named cast list in Italian), [i] (named cast list in English), [2]-99, [i] (blank) pp. With text in Italian and English on facing pages. Named cast includes Andrea Pacini, Francesco Borosini, Francesco Bernardi, Guiseppe Boschi, Francesca Cuzzonni, and Anna Dotti. Small paper repair to lower margin of pp. 29/30 just affecting tailpiece on p. 29 and two words of text on p. 30. First performed in London at the King's Theatre on October 31, 1724 to a libretto by Niccola Francesco Haym after Agostino Piovene. First Edition. HWV p. 237. Sonneck p. 1049. Dean p. 564. "Two comparably great though very different masterpieces dominated the next season. Tamerlano, which opened the season (31 October 1724), and Rodelinda (13 February 1725) are comparatively restrained in instrumentation, but possess a taut dramatic power to which it is hard to find a parallel in opera of this period." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online. ELPIDIA [HWV A1] L'Elpidia, overo Li Rivali Generosi. Drama per Musica. Da Rappresentarsi Nel Regio Teatro di Hay-Market, per La Reale Accademia di Musica. The Words compos'd by Signor Apostolo Zeno. The Musick by Signor Leonardo Vinci, except some few Songs by Signor Gioseppe Orlandini. London: Printed, and Sold at the Opera-Office in the Hay-Market, 1725. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), [i] (cast list in Italian), [i] (cast list in English), [i] ("Argomento"), [i] ("Argument"), [7]-45, [i] (blank) pp. Text in Italian, with summaries of scenes in English. Small paper repair to lower margin of pp. 45/46 just affecting tailpiece on p. 45; contemporary annotation in ink to lower margin of blank p. 46. Named cast includes Boschi, Senesino, Pacini, Cuzzoni, Borosini, and Sorofini. A pasticcio first performed on May 11, 1725 to a libretto by Apostolo Zeno with music by Handel, Leonardo Vinci and Giuseppe Maria Orlandini. First Edition. HWV p. 344-345. Not in Sonneck. "Elpidia was Handel's first pasticcio. He arranged the whole and composed the recitatives. Haym took the libretto from Zeno's I rivali generosi... Most of the aria texts were lifted with their music from Vinci's Ifigenia in Tauride and Rosmira fedele and Orlandini's Berenice, the three newest operas produced at the San Gioivanni Gristostomo theatre in Venice only a few weeks earlier... For the first time London audiences were confronted with the pre-classical style based on harmonic rather than contrapuntal bass lines and florid voice parts that go their own way rather than developing ritornello material. Handel's quickness in seizing the latest fashion, which he was soon to digest and make his own, is remarkable." Dean p. 321. SCIPIONE [HWV 20] Scipione. Drama. Da Rappresentarsi Nel Regio Teatro di Hay-Market; per La Reale Accademia di Musica. London: Printed, and Sold at the King's Theatre in the Hay-Market, 1726. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto argument in Italian and English, verso cast list in Italian), [i] (cast list in English), [2]-63, [i] (blank) pp. Text in Italian and English on facing pages. Lower margins of two leaves trimmed affecting last line of text but not affecting legibility; small portion of upper outer corner of pp. 41/42 lacking affecting several words. Named cast includes Baldi, Francesco Bernardi, Antinori, Boschi, Francesca Cuzzoni, and Constantini. First performed in London at the King's Theatre on March 12, 1726 to a libretto by Paolo Antonio Rolli based on Antonio Salvi's Publio Cornelio Scipione (1704, Livorno), after Livy, Historiarum ab urbe condita, xxvi, 50. ?First Edition. HWV p. 261 (two editions published in 1726, one published by Thomas Edlin and the present edition, not assigning precedence). Not in Sonneck. Dean p. 623. "Scipione was Handel's eighth full-length opera for the Royal Academy of Music. There were 13 performances in the first run, with a cast consisting of the castratos Senesino and Antonio Baldi (Luceio [Luceius] and Scipio), the sopranos Francesca Cuzzoni and Livia Costantini (Berenice and Armira), the tenor Luigi Antinori (Lelio [Laelius]) and the bass Giuseppe Boschi (Ernando). The opera was written in unusual haste; Handel completed the score only ten days before the first performance, having taken - according to the librettist, Rolli - just three weeks to compose the music; signs of hurry are occasionally apparent both in the music (the overture borrows from two of Handel's recorder sonatas) and the libretto (the last recitative repeats the words of an earlier aria)."

First performed in London at the King's Theatre on May 14, 1723 to a libretto by Nicola Francesco Haym adapted from Mateo Noris's Il Flavio Cuniberto (1682, Venice). HWV p. 210. Not in Sonneck. Dean p. 477. "Flavio was Handel's fourth full-length opera composed for the Royal Academy of Music; its eight performances ended the 1722-3 season at the King's Theatre... Handel revived Flavio at the King's Theatre on 18 April 1732, when the bass Montagnana took over the role of Ugone (originally tenor) and the tenor Pinacci the role of Lotario (originally bass); this reversal of voices actually restored Handel's first plan for the opera, Acts 1 and 2 having been originally written for this combination. Chrysander's edition largely ignores the pre-performance and 1732 versions of the opera." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online. "The operas of the Academy period are generally more serious in tone (the enjoyable exception is Flavio (1723)..." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online. Very slightly worn, browned, and soiled; very occasional minor foxing; minor dampstaining to lower inner margins; remnants of contemporary blue/gray wrappers to extreme inner margin of some half-titles; margins slightly trimmed occasionally just touching catchwords or signature designations; occasional other very minor defects.

Eine der schönsten Ausgabe einer Malerschule die wir je gesehen haben. Johann Daniel Preissler (1666, Nuremberg 1737) was a notable member of a German artistic family, originating in Bohemia. His children included Johan Martin Preisler, Georg Martin Preisler and Johann Justin Preissler, all artists. Most notable for his portraits, nudes and history paintings, he also produced drawings and frescoes. He was also known beyond Nuremberg for his "Die durch Theorie erfundene Practic" (full title: "Die durch Theorie erfundene Practic oder Gründlich verfasste Reguln deren man sich als einer Anleitung zu berühmter Künstlere Zeichen-Wercke bestens bedienen kann"), a sequence of works on art-theory the individual works were translated into several other languages and served as textbooks for students such as the Swiss Salomon Gessner right up until the 19th century. By the time of his death in 1737, Johann Caspar Füssli spoke of Preissler and Jan Kupecky as the two most famous Nuremberg artists of the early 18th century. He received his first artistic training in his home town under his father, the history painter and portraitist Daniel Preissler (16271665), continuing his education in the studio of Johann Murrer. From 1688 to 1696 he stayed in Italy, including periods in Rome and Venice. In 1705 he became the director of Nuremberg's Academy of Fine Arts, which under his leadership turned into a city institution. In 1716 he founded the Zeichenschule (drawing school), open to "poor people's children" it proved a great success. With 71 students entering in the first year, its intake was so large that in 1721 Preissler began producing the teaching materials which later became his "Die durch Theorie erfundene Practic" he had previously only published academic works, such as ones on anatomy. Preissler also wrote on the academically neglected topics such as ornament and flower-drawing (in 1725) and landscape drawing (1739), though throughout his writing he insisted that these were only beginners' lessons.

         Octoechos (liturgy)].

      Russia first half of 19th century - Octavo (22.5 x 18 cm). 149 leaves, 8 additional ll. in different hand on paper with smaller margins, illuminated in red and black ink, with profusely illustrated headpieces, quires numbered with Church Slavonic numerals. Contemporary blind stamp leather binding over wood panels, spine with five raised bands, two clasps (both missing); rubbed. The present manuscript exemplifies the archaic style of singing, known as khomoniya or razdel'norechie, retaining the reduced vowels of Church Slavonic. This style of singing was abolished in the Orthodox Church in the latter part of the 17th century, but was retained by some Old Believer communities. The liturgical book called Octoechos contains a repertoire of hymns ordered in eight parts according to the eight tones and sung during the celebrations of the Sunday Office. The volume would have been made and used by Old Believers, who separated after 1666 from the official Russian Orthodox Church as a protest against church reforms introduced by Patriarch Nikon of Moscow between 1652 and 1666. The faithful refused to accept the alterations in Orthodox worship and amendments in the Holy texts imposed by the Patriarch Nikon that were aimed at bringing the religious practice closer to the "Greek originals". Hence, they reproduced their Holy texts in manuscript preserving liturgical practices that the Russian Orthodox Church maintained before the implementation of these reforms. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
