        Synopsis optica, in qua illa omnia quae ad opticam, dioptricam, catoptricam pertinent, id est, ad triplicem radium visualem directum, refractum, reflexum breviter quidem, accurate tamen demonstrantur.

      Lyon: Horace Boissat & Georges Remeus, 1667. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (223 x 159 mm). [8], 246 pp., including 6 folding engraved plates bound at end, woodcut vignette on title, woodcut tailpieces. Contemporary mottled calf, spine with 4 raised bands gilt in compartments and with gilt lettering piece, sprinkled edges (light soiling of boards, minor repair to hinges and spine ends, corners bumped). Text little browned throughout, scattered minor spotting, erased cancelled signature at top margin of title-page, dampstain to rear pastedown. Still very good copy. ---- Sommervogel III: 515 ; Vagnetti EIII b58; Wellcome III, p.3. FIRST EDITION of Fabri's influential work on optics, the inspiration for Newton's work on light and color. It was through this work that Newton learned of the discovery of diffraction of light by Francesco Maria Grimaldi. Fabri also describes the rings of Saturn (he was involved in a long dispute with Huygens over their interpretation), difficulties of telescopic observations, and the construction of compound microscopes. He presents a theory of the blueness of the sky based on the principle of dispersion. There is also a careful exposition of theories of vision and the mechanics of the eye. Fabri was educated at the Collège de la Trinité in Lyon, and became a Jesuit priest. After teaching at the college for several years, he moved to Rome, where he held the position of Theologian of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Penitentiary for thirty years. Some of his works were considered controversial within the church, but his standing as a scientist places him squarely among some of the greatest minds of his time. Very Good.

        Leviathan: of van de Stoffe, Gedaente, ende Magt van de Kerckelijcke ende Wereltlycke Regeeringe. Beschreven door Thomas Hobbes van Malmesbury. Amsterdam: J. Wagenaar, 1667.

      - Rare and important first Dutch edition of Leviathan, translated from the 1651 Head edition by Spinoza's friend Abraham van Berkel (1639-86). 'As was established by C.W. Schoneveld in 1983, Van Berkel was responsible for the anonymous translation of Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan that appeared in 1667. In the Preface, signed A.T.A.B., he declared himself an opponent of the House of Orange and an upholder of the republican principles of Johan de Witt. . Because of Van Berkel’s obvious limitations to his knowledge of English, however, there are many mistakes. In the Dutch Leviathan some of these are possibly deliberate mistranslations, reflecting a specifically Dutch and Spinozistic view of the role of the state rather than its more authoritarian Hobbesian counterpart. The most notorious case in point is where Hobbes states that ‘disobedience may lawfully be punished in them, that against the Laws teach even true philosophy’ (p. 474, Tuck edn), which in Van Berkel’s Dutch becomes: ‘Want de Ongehoorsaamheyt mag wettelijck in haar gestraft worden, die tegens de Wetten een valsche Philosophie leeren derven’ (p. 709, Dutch edn), thus substituting ‘false’ for ‘true’ philosophy. Dutch freethinkers obviously did not want the authorities (as had happened in the past) to put strictures on true philosophy, which for them meant (radical) Cartesianism and Spinozism. The Dutch Leviathan was reissued in 1672 but banned by the Court of Holland, in July 1674' (Dictionary of 17th and 18th-Century Dutch Philosophers, Thoemmes Press, 2003). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, with the extra engraved title, the portrait of Hobbes and the folding table, [xiv], 744, [64] pp., (misnumberings: 45 for 47, 207 for 307, 389 for 289, 307 for 407, 595 for 597, 789 for 689), contemporary vellum with hand-lettered spine, uniform light browning, 3 leaves (F, N, T2) with small tears in bottom margin, a spot on X6, a tiny dampstain running through top margin of index, hole in final leaf of index repaired with slight loss of text, still a good copy overall.

Mit 2 doppelblattgroßen Faltkarten (Imperium sinicum / Tabula geodoborica itinerum a variis in Cataium). Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680). Schöner als der im gleichen Jahr bei Meurs herausgekommene Raubdruck (vgl. Cordier).

        Pinax rerum naturalium Britannicarum, continens vegetabilia, animalia, et fossilia, in hac insula reperta inchoatus.

      Typis T. Roycroft, Impensis Cave Pulleyn, London 1667 - 8vo (156 x 100 mm). [32], 223 [1] pp. Bound in contemporary vellum over thin boards, spine title in manuscript (little soling of vellum). Text little browned, occsional minor spotting, shelf marks to front pastedown and title. Very good copy in untouched original binding. ---- DSB IX, 312; Cobres I, 253,3; Agassiz III, 586; Henrey 255; Schuh, Merrett 1; Wing M1840; Graesse IV, 499. FIRST EDITION, second issue, of Merret's comprehensive catalogue of British flora, fauna, and minerals. William How's 'Phytologia (1650) was still in demand when it went out of print. At the publisher's request Merrett wrote Pinax to replace it. Since he was not fieldworker but a sedentary and inexpert naturalist, he enlisted all the help possible and revealed a wide knowledge of the relevant literature by giving more precise references than his predecessors had. The first impression one year before is quite rare as it just appeared before the great fire [of London], which apparently consumed most of the print run (ODNB). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

He gives detailed figures and statistics of different clergymen, their revenues and all sources of income, concluding that 'the money that before ran currant in trading, is damned up in their coffers'.

        Paradise Lost

      London: [Samuel Simmons for] Peter Parker, Robert Boulter & Mathias Walker, 1667 FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING sheets of Common Sense, here with the third edition title page and prefatory leaf. Richard Gimbel's definitive study identifies points in every gathering distinguishing the three editions that Bell printed in early 1776. This copy of Common Sense contains all of the points of the first printing, save the two-leaf gathering [A]2 (title and preface). Bound in at the end is Paine's Large Additions to Common Sense, which Bell pirated from a competitor and offered separately for one shilling to buyers of Common Sense. "Paine's Common Sense, published anonymously in January 1776, was the first vigorous attack on King George ... and the first public appeal for an American Republic. It is not too much to say that the Declaration of Independence of July 7, 1776, was due more to Paine's Common Sense than to any other single piece of writing" (Streeter). Born in England in 1737, Paine moved to London in 1774 where he met Benjamin Franklin, who encouraged him to emigrate to America. Franklin provided Paine with letters of introduction to his son William Franklin, royal governor of New Jersey, and his son-in-law Richard Bache, an influential merchant in Philadelphia. Paine arrived in America in November 1774, an unemployed 37-year old immigrant. Through Franklin's influence, the brilliant but unpolished Paine gained access to many leading American intellectuals and soon became editor of the Pennsylvania Magazine. Within one year of his arrival, Paine was working on early drafts of Common Sense, which was published on January 10, 1776. The pamphlet, which immediately became the most talked-about publication in America, made Paine a the leading voice of revolution. Common Sense is brilliant in its simplicity and contains many of the most memorable phrases of the revolutionary period. Paine wrote, "in America the law is King. For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries the law ought to be King; and there ought to be no other. ... A government of our own is our natural right ... it is infinitely wiser and safer, to form a constitution of our own in a cool deliberate manner, while we have it in our power, than to trust such an interesting event to time and chance." It was "the most brilliant pamphlet written during the American Revolution, and one of the most brilliant pamphlets ever written in the English language" (Bernard Bailyn). "The immediate success and impact of Common Sense was nothing short of astonishing. ... Common Sense went through twenty-five editions and reached literally hundreds of thousands of readers in the single year 1776 ... The pamphlet's astonishing impact stemmed from the fact that it appeared at precisely the moment when Americans were ready to accept Paine's destruction of arguments favoring conciliation and his appeal to latent republicanism, to the material interests of the colonists and to the widespread hopes for the future of the New World. ... By doing all this in a new style of writing and a new political language, Paine 'broke the ice that was slowly congealing the revolutionary movement'" (Foner, Tom Paine and Revolutionary America). Together with the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and The Federalist, Common Sense is one of the fundamental documents of the birth of our nation. The most recent census of Common Sense locates seventeen complete first editions. Only two of these remain in private hands, and neither is likely to appear for sale. The present volume, containing the first edition sheets, is the most desirable available copy of Common Sense, perhaps the most influential book in American history. Gimbel, Thomas Paine. A Bibliographical Checklist of Common Sense (New Haven, 1956). Two volumes in one. Disbound, original stabholes visible. Some staining, foxing and wear, old inscription on verso of title. Half morocco case.

The tracts have been cropped to a uniform size with minor loss to text of prelims of Papal Tyranny but no loss to body of text. Worm holes to prelims and title page of Apology and very minor holes to margin only of The Unreasonableness and Impiety and to Womock's Letter, and slightly larger marks to margin of The Religion. .Small repair with associated tear to p 31/2 of Late Apology, corner loss to p 27/8 of Letter.Scattered foxing and fingermarking; some toning mainly to Papal Tyranny and to individual title pages otherwise contents very good. Anti-Catholicism in England was inextricably linked with fears of internal subversion and terrorism, and of invasion by Catholic powers France and Spain, and the reigns of the Protestant monarchs were marked by Catholic plots and assassination attempts; Catholics were even blamed for the Great Fire of London in 1666. Attitudes remained entrenched and in 1698 the Popery Act imposed Penal Laws which remained largely in place for over a hundred years; even in 1780 discussions about the repeal of some of the laws provoked the Gordon Riots. This collection of pamphlets gives an indication of the attitudes of the time and of the seriousness with which the subject was treated.

        China Monumentis . illustrata.

      THE WONDERS OF CHINA KIRCHER, ATHANASIUS. China Monumentis . illustrata. Amsterdam: Jansson, 1667. Folio. Engraved title, 2 folding maps, portrait, 23 plates (2 folding), five supplied from another copy, and 59 half-page text engravings. [14], 237, [11] pp. Early calf, morocco label, edges sprinkled red. Joints slightly tender at top, some foxing, occasional browning. A fine, fresh copy. FIRST EDITION. One of the grandest and most important works on China up to its time, Kircher's China Illustrata (China, Illustrated Through Its Monuments, Both Sacred and Profane) inaugurated the late 17th-century age of European fascination with China. This first edition is in Latin; the book was quickly reissued in Dutch, English, and French. Kircher's wide-ranging and magnificently illustrated work covers Chinese language, history, religion, government, architecture, mechanical marvels, and natural wonders. The work brought to the attention of large numbers of Westerners the wonders and curiosities of the Far East including foot binding, Confucianism, the Great Wall, lacquer, bird's nest soup, and tea. One of the most distinguished German scholars of the 17th century, Kircher (1601-1680) is sometimes called "the last Renaissance man." He made wide-ranging contributions in oriental studies, geology, and medicine. He attempted to collect and catalogue the world's knowledge, employing a vast network of correspondents to gather information. This book represents a milestone in the study of Chinese language. Kircher learned from missionary Michael Boym of the now-famous Nestorian inscription at His-an fu, which showed that Christian missionaries reached China in A.D. 781. The transcription and transliteration of the His-an fu inscription, printed here for the first time, make up "the first Chinese vocabulary ever printed in the West . . . the standard text for the study of Chinese until the nineteenth century" (Merrill). This is a very handsome, fresh copy in an early unrestored binding.

        Drop-title of letterpress text:] Korte beschryvinghe, ende aenwysinghe der plaetsen in desen boeck, naar hunnen tegenwoordighen standt, pertinentelyck uyt-ghebeeldt, in Oostenryck.[Antwerp], Jacob Peeters, [ca. 1685]. Small oblong folio (17.5 x 29 cm). Collection of 108 engraved prints published by Jacob Peeters, starting with 9 engraved scenes of the siege of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe (numbered 1-10, but lacking plate 1), and followed by 99 engraved city views after drawings by Jacob Peeters, engraved by Lucas Vorsterman and Gaspar Bouttats. The city views are preceded by a 12 page letterpress text giving descriptions of the towns. Contemporary red paper-covered boards.

      - Atabey 933 (Dutch edition, 63 plates); Landwehr, De Hooghe Book Illustrator 82 (French ed. with unclear amount of plates); Weber 816 (Dutch edition, 125 plates); for related series: cf. Atabey 934; Blackmer 1276-1277; Hollstein XVIII, p. 28, 1, III, p. 175, 23 & XLII, pp. 123-133, 60-78; Le Blanc, p. 156; Nagler XI, pp. 165-166; Weber 821. Interesting collection of engraved prints centred around the Great Turkish War (1667-1683), a series of conflicts between the Ottoman Empire and Europe. The collection can be divided into 2 general parts: the first with engraved scenes of the siege of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe, and the second with nearly a hundred views of the involved cities. This second part contains 5 separate series, with views of Lower Hungary, Crete and the Maltese Archipelago, the Dardanelles and the Aegean archipelago, the Strait of Gibraltar and North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. The series of 14 views of Arabia, includes Mecca, Jerusalem (2), Bethlehem, Kidron Valley, Mount Sinai, Antiochia, the Valley of Terebinthu, Hurcasdin near Aleppo, the springs of Marah, Ramma Valley, a valley near Jerusalem with the Mar Elias Monastery, and a view of Suez with the mountains of Arabia in the background.The collection was published by Jacob Peeters (1637-1695), and most of the engravings are made after drawings by his brother Johannes, or Jan, Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes as well-shown in the present views, often depicting harbours with several ships.The number of plates vary from copy to copy, but the present collection seems to lack at least 1 plate: the first of the scenes of the siege of Vienna. Some occasional foxing and minor stains. Binding rubbed and spine worn and cracked. Good copy.

      Londoni [London]: Typis T. Roycroft, Impensis Cave Pulleyn, 1667.. Second edition. Small 8vo. (xxxii), 223, (1) pp. Recent panelled calf, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered red label, ex-John Crerar Library with their bookplate to the front pastedown featuring a de-accession stamp, plus their perforated stamp to the title which, all things considered, is relatively discreet, some early marginalia at intervals. Some light dampstaining to the front and rear, a decent copy overall. An important work, for although Merret provided very little in the way of commentary, this was one of the earliest printed catalogues of the British natural world and was the first systematic listing of the nation's birds and butterflies. Henrey, I pp. 98-100. Raven, pp. 311-338. Cf. Lisney, p. 27. The first edition, published the year before, is very rare as it is assumed many copies perished in the Great Fire of London. This is a variant issue of the second edition without mention of the edition on the title page and an abbreviated imprint.

        Obras en Prosa de Don . coronista del Rey Nuestro Señor, por el mismo añadidas. Y por el dedicadas al Ilustrissimo Señor Conde de Villambrosa .

      Madrid, por Andres Garcia de la Iglesia, a costa de Juan Martin Merinero, mercader de libros, 1667. - 4°, contemporary limp vellum (wrinkled and stained, remains of ties, slight defect at one corner), spine with "Obras de Zavaleta" vertically in contemporary manuscript. A few woodcut initials. Margins trimmed rather narrow, without touching text. Single 4.5 cm. wormtrail in first 5 leaves, touching a number of letters of text, but without loss of legibility. Some soiling. Overall in good condition. Old ink signature, scored, in blank portion of title page. A few ink scribbles elsewhere. (4 ll.), 490 pp. Pagination irregular but content apparently complete, with catchwords matching and text following in all cases: unpaginated leaf following p. 176 (pagination and much of running title cropped; according to bibliographical sources, it should be the first of two leaves paginated 177-178); pagination skips pp. 233-4 without loss; text follows, catchwords match, and collation by signatures is correct; p. 286 wrongly numbered as 274. *** FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of Zavaleta's prose works. Over the next century, seven editions appeared. OCLC locates only three copies of this edition in United States libraries. Zavaleta is most appreciated today as a costumbrista of the Siglo de Oro, and this volume includes his popular Dia de fiesta por la mañana and Dia de fiesta por la tarde, "witty and informative descriptions of Madrid society" (Ward). Ticknor calls them "lively satirical sketches of the manners of the metropolis at those periods when idleness brings the people into the streets and places of amusement." In an age of literary excess, Zavaleta is one of the few authors whom Ticknor considers tolerable reading.This volume contains the following.Pages 1-55: Theatro del hombre, e historia y vida del Conde Matisco contrasts the life of the libertine Conde Ludovico Matisio to the life of his virtuous father Roberto.Pages 55-69: Problemas de la Filosofia natural, acompañados de consideraciones morales, in which Zavaleta considers 12 apparent paradoxes of sensory experience, such as why coins appear larger under water, why sun hardens clay but melts wax, and why a blow on the head makes one see "stars". Pages 70-leaf following p. 176: Errores celebrados en la antigüedad, a discussion of 36 errors that have been around for a long time; Zavaleta cites stories about Caesar, Thales, the Egyptians, Carthaginians, Solon, Hadrian, and others. The Errores is considered a precursor of the eighteenth-century essay genre. In one of many skirmishes in Battle of the Ancients and Moderns, this work was attacked in Aciertos celebrados de la antigüedad, by Fr. José de la Torre, with Torre coming down firmly on the side of the Ancients. Pages 177-403: Dia de fiesta por la mañana and Dia de fiesta por la tarde. See above.Pages 403-479: El Emperador Commodo, which purports to be a translation of Herodian's life of Commodus (ruled 180-192 AD), was provoked by the lukewarm reception of Zavaleta's drama on Commodus, El Hijo de Marco Aurelio. Ticknor notes, "Complaints being made that it was not founded in truth, he began at once a life of that Emperor, which he calls a translation from Herodian, but which has claims neither to fidelity in its version, nor to purity in its style. It remained long unfinished, until one morning in 1664, waking up and finding himself struck entirely blind, he began, 'as on an elevation,' to look round for some occupation suited to his solitude and affliction. . It failed, as his drama had failed before it" (Ticknor II, 414n).Pages 480-490: Milagros de los trabajos considers four miraculous ways in which God alleviates the suffering of man on earth. Juan de Zavaleta (ca. 1610-ca. 1670), a native of Madrid, was also a familiar among contemporaries as a playwright. His style was influenced by Calderón. In the 48-volume Comedias nuevas escogidas de los mejores autores, 16 of Zavaleta's works appear, putting him among the top ten authors in terms of plays reprinted.

Small oblong folio (17.5 x 29 cm). Collection of 108 engraved prints published by Jacob Peeters, starting with 9 engraved scenes of the siege of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe (numbered 1-10, but lacking plate 1), and followed by 99 engraved city views after drawings by Jacob Peeters, engraved by Lucas Vorsterman and Gaspar Bouttats. The city views are preceded by a 12 page letterpress text giving descriptions of the towns. Contemporary red paper-covered boards.

      Atabey 933 (Dutch edition, 63 plates); Landwehr, De Hooghe Book Illustrator 82 (French ed. with unclear amount of plates); Weber 816 (Dutch edition, 125 plates); for related series: cf. Atabey 934; Blackmer 1276-1277; Hollstein XVIII, p. 28, 1, III, p. 175, 23 & XLII, pp. 123-133, 60-78; Le Blanc, p. 156; Nagler XI, pp. 165-166; Weber 821. Interesting collection of engraved prints centred around the Great Turkish War (1667-1683), a series of conflicts between the Ottoman Empire and Europe. The collection can be divided into 2 general parts: the first with engraved scenes of the siege of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe, and the second with nearly a hundred views of the involved cities. This second part contains 5 separate series, with views of Lower Hungary, Crete and the Maltese Archipelago, the Dardanelles and the Aegean archipelago, the Strait of Gibraltar and North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. The series of 14 views of Arabia, includes Mecca, Jerusalem (2), Bethlehem, Kidron Valley, Mount Sinai, Antiochia, the Valley of Terebinthu, Hurcasdin near Aleppo, the springs of Marah, Ramma Valley, a valley near Jerusalem with the Mar Elias Monastery, and a view of Suez with the mountains of Arabia in the background.The collection was published by Jacob Peeters (1637-1695), and most of the engravings are made after drawings by his brother Johannes, or Jan, Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes as well-shown in the present views, often depicting harbours with several ships.The number of plates vary from copy to copy, but the present collection seems to lack at least 1 plate: the first of the scenes of the siege of Vienna. Some occasional foxing and minor stains. Binding rubbed and spine worn and cracked. Good copy.

A description (with libretto interspersed) of one of the most magnificent of Hapsburg court entertainments, a balletto à cavallo performed on 24 and 31 January 1667 in the inner court square (Innerer Burghof) in Vienna, to celebrate the marriage of the Emperor Leopold i (1640-1705) to the Spanish Infanta Margarita Teresa (1651-1673). The specta­cle, involving around a thousand luxuriously dressed actors and two hundred musicians, was created and produced by the Florentine impresario Alessandro Carducci, aided by Carlo Pasetti of Ferrara, who designed theatrical machinery and scenes. 'For centuries... [it] has been considered the greatest horse ballet in history'. 1 The 'Contest between Air and Water' elaborates the conceit that the elements of air and water are in dispute over which of them has brought forth the beautiful Margarita; air calls on fire for help, and water on earth, and a mock combat with pistols and swords ensues. The tournament commences with a parade of decorated floats circling the Burghof, each bearing singers and surrounded by musicians and soldiers on foot and horseback. First to enter is the ship of the Argonauts bearing Fama, who recounts the quarrel between the ele­ments; then air, fire, water, and earth in that order. The machines retire and combat between the two sides begins. Sud­denly, a voice sings out, the fighting ceases, and painted clouds part to reveal Eternity in her Temple, who explains that Margarita belongs to neither ele­ment, but to Leopold. The temple opens and out comes the Emperor himself leading a pro­cession of the spirits of his ancestors, musicians, courtiers, soldiers, and the 'Chariot of Glory'. Glory calls on the Emperor, twelve spirits, and thirty-six riders to perform an equestrian ballet, and after it concludes, all the participants leave the courtyard. 2 [img-2582-left-large_default] The ship of the Argonauts bearing Fama, the first of the festival machines to enter the Burghof (folding plate 580 ×445 mm, by Franciscus van den Steen after a drawing by Nicolas iv de Hoey) [img-2583-left-large_default] 'Retirata di S.M.C. Seguita da Capi Squadri Cavalieri, et accompagnatore della Festa, nel Tempio delle Eternità' (folding plate 290 × 430 mm, by Jan Ossenbeeck after de Hoey) The first of the illustrations 'Comparsa dei Cavalieri' (440 × 690 mm, platemark) depicts the Burghof ringed with seats and the carousel of the 'Nava degli Argonauti' and four floats signifying the elements: 'Gruppo di Nubi, con Giunone, et Iride in l'Arco Baleno' (air, represented by Iris on her rainbow), 'Grotta di Vulcano per la Squadriglia del Fuoco' (fire, represented by Vulcan's mountain), 'Seno di Mare, con Nettuno per la Squadriglia dell acqua' (water, represented by Neptune's fountain), and 'Giardino di Berecintia per la Squadriglia della Terra' (earth, represented by Berecinthia surrounded by gambolling fauns). The next five plates are details, the first showing the ship of the Argonauts, designed to accommodate sixty actors and the largest of Pasetti's machines (580 × 445 mm), then the float of each element (circa 280 × 440 mm). Another large plate, 'Comparsa di sua Maesta Ces.a dal Tempio dell'Eternità' (440 × 700 mm), depicts the entry of the Emperor into the arena, and is followed by one of the 'Carro della Gloria' with the heroic virtues on board (285 × 440 mm). The mock combat, conducted on foot and horseback and abruptly termi­nated by the descent of the Emperor from the temple of Eternity, is recorded on a series of eight plates entitled 'Parte delle figure dei Caroselli' (each print circa 140 × 200 mm). A series of thirteen prints, entitled 'Parte delle Figure del Balletto' (circa 275 × 180 mm), records the choreography of the equestrian ballet, organised in twelve figures with an exit procession, and per­formed according to a dance suite composed by Johann Heinrich Schmelzer (see below). These illustrations show both the patterns executed on the ground by groups of eight, six, or four riders (the Emperor always in the centre), and the steps and leaps performed in the air: the croupade (a dressage figure), and the capriole (a leap in which the horse kicks out its hind legs). The final illustration records the 'Retirata... nel Tempio delle Eternità' (290 × 430 mm). 3 The court librettist Francesco Sbarra was assisted by Antonio Bertali (1605-1669), who composed the chorus and vocal soli (his music is lost), and by Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, who provided instrumental music (see below). Two settings of the text are recorded by the Vd17 project (Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachraum erschienenen Drucke des 17. Jahrhunderts). 4 An edition with Italian text (La Contesa Dell'Aria, e Dell'Acqua) was published simultane­ously with the same plates. 5 An edition in quarto format with cop­ies of the illustrations by Andreas Frölich was published as part of the compilation 'Allerhöchst-Feyerlichste Festivitäten' in the Diarium euro­paeum, xv, Appendix oder Anhang (Frankfurt am Main circa 1667). references Anton Mayer, Wiens Buchdrucker-Geschichte 1482-1882 (Vienna 1883), i, p.253, no. 1451; Katalog der Ornamentstichsammlung der Staatlichen Kunstbibliothek Berlin (1939), no. 2850 and Staatliche Museen Berlin, Katalog der Lipperheideschen Kostümbibliothek, edited by Eva Nienholdt & Gretel Wagner-Neumann (Berlin 1965), Sc8 (lacking a plate); Das Barocke Fest, exhibi­tion cata­logue by Eckehart Nölle, Neuen Residenz (Bamberg 1968), no. 41; Libretti.

The composer of the instrumental music for the balletto à cavallo performed in 1667 for the wedding of the Emperor Leopold and the Infanta Margarita Teresa was Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, the leading Austrian composer of instrumental music of his genera­tion. The music consists of five movements: 'Corrente per l'Intrada di S.M.C. & di tutti i Cavaglieri', 'Giga per Entrata de i Saltatori [specially-trained horsemen, executing the caprioles], e per molte altre figure', 'Follia per nuovo ingresso de i Saltatori, & altre opera­zioni de Cavalli', 'Allemanda per gl'intrecci e figure di passegio grave introdotto da S.M.C. e Cavaglieri', and 'Sarabande per termine del Balletto'. 'Nach Sbarras Beschreibung wurde die das eigentli­che Ballett einleitende Sinfonia von über 100 Saiteninstrumenten, dazu Flöten, Trompeten und anderen Blasinstrumenten ge­spielt. Die als Intrada fungierende Corrente, die Follia als mittleren der fünf Tänze und die Sarabanda am Ende, alle sechsstimmig, führten 24 Trompeten und zwei Paar Pauken aus, die Giga vier Clarini, die zweistimmig mit dem doppelchörigen Streichorchester konzer­tierten, und die Allemanda nur die Streicher'. 6 This edition was appended to both the Italian and German editions of Sbarra's libretto (see above), but apparently not all copies.
