About this Item: Ivan Momarte, Bruselas, 1613. Condition: Bien. 1 Edición. Materia: Libro antiguo del siglo XVII. Primera edición. Militar. Artillería. Publicación: En Bruselas, En casa de Ivan Momarte, 1613. Primera edición. Descripción física: Cuarto (24,5 cm.) 1 hoja en blanco, portada, 1 hoja en blanco, 8 hojas, 423 páginas, 4 hojas, 43 láminas. Encuadernación pleno pergamino actual. Conservación: Buen estado, algunas láminas oscurecidas y hoja 101 - 102 facsimilar. Según Palau esta obra tiene 47 láminas pero hay ejemplares con 51, 49, 54 todos los ejemplares vistos difieren en láminas. Diego Ufano: (Yepes, ?- 1613) Ingeniero militar español. Trabajó al servicio del ejército español en Flandes bajo las órdenes del general de artillería Luis Velasco. Notas: Ufano publicó esta obra dedicada a estudiar los aspectos teóricos y prácticos de la artillería, incorporando los conocimientos y experiencias debidos a otros autores españoles y en particular a Luis Collado de Lebrija. En la parte de balística descompone la trayectoria del proyectil, según el esquema de Niccolò Tartaglia, en tres fases: movimiento violento (recto), mixto (arco de círculo) y natural (recto) Pero además, Ufano aportó algunas novedades. Así, enuncia sin demostrar la igualdad de alcance, en el tiro de proyectiles, para ángulos de tiro complementarios. Propone además una regla para calcular alcances consistente en hallar por ensayo el alcance para el tiro horizontal y asignar los alcances para cada grado de elevación de modo que los incrementos de los mismos seguirían una progresión aritmética, decreciendo regularmente hacia el máximo. Se advierte así, junto al empirismo característico de este tipo de obras, un deseo por encontrar las leyes generales que rigen el tiro de proyectiles. Además de los aspectos relativos a la artillería, Ufano se ocupa en su obra de numerosas cuestiones de ingeniería: recuperación de navíos hundidos, extracción de piezas del fondo del mar mediante buzos, pirotecnia y artificios de iluminación, construcción de pasarelas y trenes de puentes, con una ingeniosa barca-puente doble invención suya.

About this Item: en Casa de Ivan Momarte,, En Brusselas, 1613. Cm. 26, pp. (20) 423 + (8) di indice ed errata, (2) bianche. Frontespizio con titolo entro sontuosa bordura architettonica incisa su rame con stemma nobiliare del dedicatario, l'Arciduca Alberto d'Austria, sorretto da leoni rampanti ed angeli; due cannoni ed un'aquila che sorregge negli artigli un fascio di frecce sormontano la cornice. Una pianta militare incisa su rame sormonta la dedicatoria e 54 tavole incise su rame fuori testo (di cui 5 ripiegate). Legatura moderna, firmata da Aldo Perticaroli di Roma, in piena pelle marrone con filetti e bordure in oro perimetrali ai piatti. Dorso a nervi con titolo in oro su tassello rosso e decori in oro entro scomparti. Entro custodia in cart. rigido marmorizzato. Duplice ex-libris. Come in altri esemplari confrontati, alcune tavole presentano un'uniforme brunitura. Esemplare peraltro assai bello e ben conservato. Prima edizione di questa rimarchevole opera secentesca di artiglieria terrestre e marittima in cui l'autore discorre anche di varie questioni d'ingegneria quali il recupero dei navigli affondati, i fuochi pirotecnici (assai rilevante la sezione consacrata alla pirotecnia), la costruzione di passerelle e ponti, ecc. Nel trattato l’autore avrebbe comunicato, a giudizio di alcuni, l’idea di produrre armi a tiro ripetuto, precorritrici delle moderne mitragliatrici (in realtà si tratta di ipotesi di tiro continuato mediante giustapposizione di file di fucilieri). Interessanti e molto ampie sono le parti del trattato dedicate alle attività di logistica e alle mansioni del genio e assai importanti i paragrafi attinenti al recupero dei navigli dispersi per affondamento. Il trattato, uno dei più dotti e articolati in materia tra quanti ne furono impressi nel XVII secolo, conobbe traduzioni in svariate lingue europee, tra cui anche il tedesco ed il polacco. L'Ufano, nato a Yepes in data imprecisata, morto nel 1613, esercitò la professione di ingegnere militare al servizio dell'esercito spagnolo nelle Fiandre, agli ordini del generale Luis Velasco. La sua opera più siginificativa rimane la presente, in cui confluiscono apporti di numerosi trattatisti militari (soprattutto Luis Collado de Lebrija). Cockle, 684, note: "This is a very famous work, holding a prominent place in the history of artillery". Graesse, VII, 222. Brunet, V, 1000. Palau, 342943. Fournier, p. 541, col. II: "Ouvrage rare e recherché". Almirante, 858. Peeters-Fontainas, 1328. Riling, 78. Seller Inventory # 41537

Artillerie, c'est a dire: Vraye instruction de: Ufano, Diego

About this Item: Contemporary vellum, lower right corner of front and corner of back cover damaged, else a very good copy of this rare edition, with a contemporary ownership mark at the final endpaper. pag.: [6] 144, 6. With engr. titleborder with a centrepiece titlepage mounted, woodcut printer’s device on the typographic titlepage and 29, mostly double-page folded engravings. 2: PI, PI2 A-S4 a4 (a4 blank). Diego Ufano was associated with the Spanish armies in the Netherlands. His book on artillerie first appeared in 1612. The first edition of the French translation was published in Zutphen in 1621. According to Simoni this edition was based on the French edition that was published in Frankfurt in 1614, for which Theodor de Bry copied the original plates (which are subsequently copied in our edition), and printed by Paulus van Ravesteyn at Amsterdam, with the ‘nobilitas’ device of Theodore Rodenburgh he used. Apparently Johannes Janssonius in Amsterdam bought the remaining copies of the Zwolle publisher and republished the book als a title-issue. He simply added a new titlepage, consisting of an engraved border with a new titlepage pasted on in the centre. In his work Ufano describes a method used for salving guns, which had to be recovered after being lost occasionally when armies crossed rivers. The illustration shows one of the earliest depictions of a diver, using a large hood made of cow’s hide. A respiration tube was connected to his helmet and was kept above by a pig’s blatter, allowing the diver to breathe when he didn’t go any deeper then a few meters. B0119 B0119.
