About this Item: Venetia, Giouanni Guerrigli, 1621. Folio. Cont. full (italian) vellum. Binding fine and intact with only a few brownspots on covers. Fine engraved allegorical title with portrait of the author. (10),142 pp., 9 engraved plates and 18 large engravings in the text (from full- page to half-page). A dampstain in upper inner corners, decreasing towards end (4x3 cm) and a dampstain in lower right corners (increasing towards end (4x4 cm) ). Otherwise good with large margins, 3 small stamps (1 on flyleaf, 1 on title and 1 on verso of title). Engraved royal book-plate and a royal signature (CR = CRex), the Danish king Chr. V. Over the bookplate in contemporary hand: "G.F. Francus de Frankenau Med.D. & P.P./ Hafniæ 1709". First edition of what is perhaps the main work on artillery from the 17th Century, by one of the most highly regarded experts on artillery, the military scientist Pietro Sardi (1559 - 16?).The important "l'Artiglieria", which contains detailed descriptions of land- and navel-artillery, cannon and gun barrel production, saltpeter and gunpowder, ballistics etc., etc.,constitutes Sardi's most important work, and it occupies an absolute central place within military science of the 17th century. In the 17th century, military scientists were not generally aware of the exact qualities and abilities of saltpeter, e.g. that it became finer and purer each time it was boiled. Pietro Sardi was one of the leading scientists in the field of gunpowder and saltpeter at the time, and it is in his "L'Artiglieria" that his important theories on saltpeter are developed. He claimed that all the vigour of gunpowder depended on the quantity and quality of the saltpeter in it, and as such, his early theories on this subject became highly influential. Parts of Sardi's work was translated into English as early as 1670, namely those on saltpeter and gunpowder (Book III, chapters 40 to 54, in "Legends no Histories", by Henry Stubbe, London, 1670 - see Cockle no. 688, the note). "We know from Luigi Ferdinando Marsigli, the author of the best treatise on the seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century Ottoman military, that Sardi's book was available for the Ottoman authorities in translation and that they did use it. It is also evident from the account books of the Ottoman saltpeter works that the Ottomans refined saltpeter several times." (Gábor Ágoston, "Guns for the Sultan").From the library of the Danish King Christian V, with his book-plate, and later of Frankenau, who was professor in medicine and successor to Holger Jacobæus. He was a member of the Academy Leopoldina, under the name of Philaretus. His father was physician-in-ordinary to King Chr. V. When it was handed over to the Frankenau-family cannot be decided.Cocle: 688; Gerrare, A Bibliography of Guns and Shooting: 121; Graesse, VI:271; Rumpf: 1105. Seller Inventory # 24843

About this Item: Venice, Giovanni Guerrigli for the author, 1621. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. L'Artiglieria . divisa in tre libri. Venice, appreßo Giovanni Guerrigli a spese dell'Autore, 1621. Folio. [6]f including engraved frontispiece + 142p of text. Roman & italic letter. With 18 large textual engravings (4 full-page), and 9 folding engraved plates. Numerous ornamental woodcuts and initials. Half vellum.

The engraved title features a gun barrel with loading instruments on either side of the text, and below a bust portrait of the author at the age of 50.
