L'arte vetraria distinta in libri sette, ne'qualisi: NERI, Antonio.

About this Item: Florence: for Marco Rabbuiati, 1661, 1661. Octavo (141 x 95 mm). Contemporary limp vellum. A little browning to one or two gatherings, a very good copy. Second edition, following the Giunti edition of 1612, of the first published textbook of glassmaking. One special appeal of Neri's book was that it revealed the carefully guarded secrets of Venetian glassmakers, which the author had pieced together from working alongside Venetian craftsmen who had relocated to Pisa and Antwerp. "L'arte belongs to the medieval tradition of manuscript recipe books. It is divided into seven books, the first being the most interesting, dealing with the materials of glassmaking and their mixing and melting to form crystal and other colourless glasses. Other sections deal with coloured glasses and the making of enamels for goldsmiths' use. Although it was noted by Galileo , the book made little impression for half a century" (Day & McNeil, eds., Biographical Dictionary of the History of Technology). The publication of this second edition triggered a renewed wave of interest, with another Italian edition appearing in Venice in 1663. It formed the basis of Christopher Merret's first English translation, published in London in 1662, with a dedication to Robert Boyle, which in turn inspired translations in German, Latin, French, and Spanish, making L'Arte vetraria the best known manual of glassmaking throughout Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.

About this Item: Stamperia de' Guinti, 1612. FIRST EDITION, woodcut printer's device on title, woodcut initials for each book, &c, washed, title page skilfully remargined, the succeeding 2 leaves and the last leaf also with marginal repairs, pp. [viii], 114, [3], 4to, modern binding using old Dutch floral paper on spine and fore-edges, vellum strip in the middle of the upper cover, gilt arms of Pope Pius VI in gilt at the centre of the covers, and his bookplate inside the front cover, sound. The rare first edition of the first work devoted to the manufacture of glass. Neri's L'Arte Vetraria published for the first time many of the closely guarded secrets of the craft, including techniques for coloring glass using metallic oxides to give clear and uniform colors, as well as how to produce various veined effects. Several chapters are devoted to making lead glass of high refractive index and enamel (or opaque) glass by the addition of tin oxide. It is believed that Neri learned the art of glassmaking at Murano, near Venice, and to have continued his studies of this and other chemical arts in the Low Countries. Pius VI (1717-99, reigned 1775-99), was pope at the time of the French Revolution. He was deposed by the French, who looted his library, which was later sold in Rome (see Amilcare Zavatti, Storia di una biblioteca papale, Cesena, Tip. A. Bettini, 1933 Massimo Ceresa, Una biblioteca nella Rivoluzione: i resti della biblioteca di Pio VI, in Due papi per Cesena. Pio VI e Pio VII nei documenti della Piancastelli e della Malatestiana, a cura di Paola Errani, Bologna, Patron, 1999, pp. 213-221). (Cicognara 1726; see Ferguson II, p. 134-35 (later edition) note; Partington II, p. 368; Norman 1582). Seller Inventory # 57546

About this Item: Woodcut printer's device on title. 4 p.l., 114, [6] pp. Small 4to, 18th-cent. vellum over boards (light browning & foxing). Florence: Giunta, 1612. First edition of the first and most famous textbook devoted to glassmaking. "Neri is remembered only for L'arte vetraria (1612), a little book in which many, although by no means all, of the closely guarded secrets of glassmaking were printed for the first time. He recommended that glass be made from rocchetta (a fairly pure sodium sesquicarbonate from the Near East) and tarso, which he described as a kind of marble but which must have been some form of silica. He did not indicate the source of the necessary proportion of lime. The main part of the text deals with the coloring of glass with metallic oxides to give not only clear and uniform colors but also various veined effects. There are chapters on making lead glass of high refractive index and enamel (opaque) glass by the addition of tin oxide."-D.S.B., X, p. 23. Neri (d. ca. 1614), appears to have learned the art of glassmaking at Murano, near Venice, and to have continued his studies of this and other chemical arts in the Low Countries. "The greater part of the book is devoted to the coloration of glass, both to imitate gemstones and for the use of enamellers."-Singer et al, History of Technology, III, p. 217-(& see the detailed discussion of this work on pp. 217-19). This work went through numerous editions and translations; the first edition is rare. Very good copy. Engraved armorial bookplate of the Italian poet Domenico Rosa Morando (1734-1824). ? Duncan 9299. Partington, II, p. 368. See Ferguson, II, pp. 134-35-(not owning the 1st ed.). Seller Inventory # 5235
