About this Item: Nuremberg, Germany, 1714. No Binding. Condition: Fair. Engraving (upper portion) and woodcut (lower portion) of an ornamental garden obelisk, printed on two joined sheets of laid paper. This print was first published in 1714 as the solitary (folding) plate to an 18pp. appendix to Volckamer’s great botanical folio, ‘Nurnbergische Hesperides’. Volckamer was a German businessman and passionate amateur botanist who cultivated a variety of fruits in his Nuremberg garden. As part of an elaborate design scheme he commissioned a replica of the Obelisk of Theodosius in Constantinople (now Istanbul). This diagram shows all four sides, with their carved hieroglyphs. A CURIOSITY FOR CONNOISSEURS OF PRINTING: the original lower half has been lost at some point and a wood engraving has been substituted – how recently is unclear. The engraver is not identified, other plates in the same volume were engraved by Decker, Glotsch, Steinberger, Pfann, Montalegre, Beckh, Dehne, Delsenbach, Böllmann, Lindner and Krieger. CONDITION: Folding creases (as normal), extremities a little bumped. Generally good. SIZE: 530 x 360mm, 21 x 14¼ ins. (paper). REF: See Wellcome Library 56293/D, the Obelisk plate severely trimmed. Sitwell p.148. Seller Inventory # 305

About this Item: Nuremberg. 1708- 1714., 1708. Copper plate engraving, modern handcolor, 12 1/4 x 7 3/4 inches on sheet 13 3/4 x 8 3/4 inches. Uneven margin at left edge, very good condition. A beautiful engraving from Johann Christoph Volckamer's " Nurnbergische Hesperides ". These plates are modeled after those in Ferrari's 17th century Hesperides (the first publication devoted to citrus fruit) with an image of the fruit in the upper half of the picture, but are enhanced with charming perspective drawings of gardens and views, making them of particular interest to gardeners and garden historians. This plate shows a view of the town of Hummelstein, now an area of Nuremberg, beneath the pink title ribbon and picture of a lemon. At upper right: "Pag. 188 a." There is an informative discussion of this publication in 'An Oak Spring Pomona'. Dunthorne #323. Seller Inventory # 41327

About this Item: Uncolored copper engraving. Image measures 12.25" x 20.25" This rare bird's-eye view of Sampierdarena, referred to here as "S. Pietro D'Arena," depicts the major port of Genoa, Italy. In the immediate foreground is now lost lighthouse which marked the entrance to the original port of Genoa. The city's harbor extends to the left and has two ships floating in it. Then comes a shoreline dotted with people and boats, behind which the city extends toward the horizon. Buildings are shown at an oblique angle whereby their front facades can be seen straight-on, highlighting the architecture of the city. A key in the bottom margin and running up the right border of the map indicates important sites and buildings. At the top of the print, two cherubs hold a ribbon bearing the view's title. The print appeared in Volckamer's "Nuernbergische Hesperides," published circa 1708-14. It is a dark impression in good condition, with some discoloration at the folds and minor overall staining. Narrow margins as issued. Johann Christoph Volckamer (1662--1744) was a wealthy German merchant who was one of the first to cultivate citrus fruits north of the Alps in his orangerie. He became involved in printmaking after hiring artists and engravers to produce prints of his fruits. While best known for these fruit prints, Volckamer also produced delightful views of the gardens and palaces of Europe that showcased the Baroque architecture of the period. This lovely view of Genoa exemplifies this rare series of his work. Seller Inventory # 236181

About this Item: Nuremburg, 1714. First edition. A rare double-size folding plate of a pineapple from Volckamer's work on exotic citrus fruit, published from 1708 to 1714. Tab III is one of 4 double-size plates of pineapples, the golden orange pineapple depicted in the center of the print springing full grown from it's foliage, with a tropical scene at the bottom margin, including a group of two natives, one carrying a large water jug on his head. A slightly less exuberant depiction than its companion prints. Copper engraving with later hand color, 9 3/16 x 14 5/16" with large borders. Jos. A Montalegre, fecit. Margin added lower left. Volckamer's elegant prints of then-exotic citrus are pictured in a large scale, seeming to "float" in the skies above landscape scenes below. The locations are purported to be in Nuremberg and northern Italy, but some are strikingly tropical in aspect. Dunthorne # 323. Seller Inventory # 15958

About this Item: Nuremberg, 1713. No Binding. Condition: Fine. Johann Christoph Volckamer (1644-1720), was a wealthy Nuremberg merchant who owned numerous orchards, as was fashionable among the upper class in the 18th century. In 1713 Volckamer employed artists and engravers to illustrate his fruits, over one hundred plates in all, which he published as Nurnbergische Hesperides. Volckamer’s spectacular illustrations are based on Giovanni Battista Ferrari’s Hesperides, which was the first book entirely devoted to citrus fruit and one of the most splendid baroque botanical books. Illustrated by many of the most noted classical painters of the 17th century, Ferrari’s Hesperides had a profound impact on contemporary botanical knowledge of citrus fruits and their classifications. Volckamer, however, added different landscape settings below his citrus fruits, which seem to hover above in the skies taking Ferrari’s relatively scientific model in a new illustrative direction. The settings include formal gardens and classical villas, perhaps in order to illustrate the places in which the fruits were cultivated, or simply to add a decorative element to the representations. Volckamer’s distinctive images, therefore, were not only of scientific interest, but of considerable aesthetic appeal. This untitled engraving, 8.75" x 14", depicts an indoor growing facility seated within a vast valley landscape. Volckamer himself would have owned a building like this to grow and preserve his fruit trees from the harsh winter. This plate is in excellent condition with only slightly uneven margins and small areas of foxing within the margins. Seller Inventory # sf005041435h01
