About this Item: Les Belles Lettres. Couverture rigide. Condition: Comme neuf. Dust Jacket Condition: Comme neuf. Edition originale. Paris , 2002. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf -- Reliure éditeur cartonnée sous jaquette illustrée. Format fort in-4°( 29,8 x 21,8 cm ) ( 3260 gr ).--------- Pagination d'origine respectée : XLIV-748 pages et Index suivi de 159 pages avec Index pour " Paralipomenis Historiae Omnium Animalium . **************************** "" C'est un livre prodigieux sur les " prodiges " : la Monstrorum historia est une étonnante galerie de monstres et d'étranges figures, un précieux album d'images sur lequel semble planer l'ange du bizarre. C'est aussi l'un des plus séduisants témoins du difficile et complexe passage de l'ancienne tératologie à la nouvelle, qui s'opère au tournant du XVIe et du XVIIe siècles. Les " monstres ", c'est vrai, sont surtout des " erreurs de la nature ". Mais il ne faut pas oublier qu'ils sont aussi les produits que la nature - en tant que peintre, sculpteur, graveur - offre à notre admiration pour nous montrer son activité d'artiste : rien n'est plus pleinement artificiel que ces monstres naturels. Comme la Renaissance tout entière, ce livre nourrit pour son sujet un intérêt fait d'étonnement admiratif. Il nous signale que la curiosité humaine, lorsqu'elle rencontre quelque objet qui sort des règles, s'éveille soudain et, éprise d'admiration, cherche à savoir. C'est cet appétit que la Monstrorum historia entend satisfaire. '' ******************************** ref 611fd. Seller Inventory # 52218022

About this Item: Bologna, Typis N. Tebaldini, 1642. 2 parts bound in one. Folio (348 x 240mm). pp. (6), 747, (28); pp. 159, (1), (6). With engraved title and 477 woodcuts, many full-page. Later full calf, spine with red gilt lettered label. First edition. An encyclopaedic study of monsters and monstrosities, the first treatise on teratology (although published more than 70 years after it was written) and the greatest illustrated work on the subject of the seventeenth century. The 'monsters' illustrated and described include human, animal, and botanical deformities, as well as celestial prodigies (comets, aurorae, etc.). There is a section on fetal development and deformity and a series of inter-uterine illustrations of difficult presentations. There is also a section on monsters of mythology and antiquity, including a series of illustrations of Egyptian objects depicting various animal-headed deities. The second part contains an appendix, the Paralipomena, by Bartolomei Ambrosini, Aldrovandi's successor as director of the Bologna botanic gardens.The present work is the final volume of Aldrovandi's complete Opera, published in 13 volumes. A massive encyclopaedia of the natural world based upon the specimens and drawings of natural history objects in Aldrovandi’s museum in Bologna, the first true natural history museum. This is the largest assembly of natural history illustrations to be published before the eighteenth century. Many of the illustrations were the work of the outstanding artist Jacopo Ligozzi, and the originals are still to be found in Bologna, and have recently been made available online.Aldrovandi (1522-1605), the great Bolognan naturalist, was inspired to study natural history by meeting Guillaume Rondelet in Rome, where Aldrovandi was obliged to go to defend himself against charges of heresy. 'Rondelet was then gathering material for his work on fishes. Aldrovandi, who accompanied the French physician to fish markets in order to study the various species, finally decided to study natural history, and began collecting specimens for his own museum. He was the creator and first director of the botanic gardens of the University of Bologna, in which was placed his library and natural history museum, one of the earliest of its kind. He is credited with having ‘formed one of the first herbaria as we know them today. His was an outstanding zoological and botanical intelligence, and it was unfortunate that he died before much of his work was published' (Hunt catalogue). Some occasional very light dampstaining at the lower right corner.Nissen ZBI, 74. Seller Inventory # 9459

About this Item: Nicolò Tebaldino for Marco Antonio Bernia, Bologna, 1642. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. ON REAL AND FANTASTIC GENETIC MALFORMATIONS FIRST EDITION. Folio, two volumes in one. 1): pp. (8), 748, (28); 2): pp. 159, (9), lacking final blank. Predominantly Roman letter, some Italic and little Greek; elegant engraved title by Giovanni Battista Coriolano with oval portrait of dedicatee, the Grand Duke of Tuscany Ferdinand II, surrounded by personification of Faith and Justice and seven putti holding six medallions with ancient monstrous creatures and classical mottos, historiated initials and decorative head- and tail-pieces, over 300 large or full-page illustrations of monstrous or exotic creatures, separate title for 2), printer’s device on final verso; very occasional light damp stain to gutter, a couple of leaves dusty. An exceptionally good, well-margined copy in vellum from a mid-fifteenth-century double-columned manuscript of Biblical extracts in a Northern Italian hand with either Austrian or Southern Germany pink, blue, green and gilt decoration, contemporary title inked on spine with later shelf mark label; three original green silk laces out of four, yapped edges; a little soiled, tiny loss to spine; at head and foot of title, contemporary ex libris of Count Wolfgang Engelbert von Auersperg dated 1655; on front pastedown, armorial bookplate of the Auersperg family library in Ljubljana. First edition, densely illustrated, of the unsurpassed early modern investigation of genetic deformities (both real and fantastic) in human and animal bodies. Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605) is regarded as the father of modern natural history due to his pivotal contribution to zoology, botany and geology. An erudite scholar of wide-ranging interests, he was the first professor of natural science at Bologna university. There, he established a renowned botanical garden and gathered a steady amount of specimens and detailed drawings of faunal and floral rarities in his private museum. Everything was later bequeathed to the City Senate. The majority of his extensive scientific essays was published posthumously by his pupils with the support of the Bolognese Commune. This highly entertaining history of monsters is by far Aldrovandi’s most famous work. It includes all sort of multi-limbed and similarly deformed babies, girls, animals, plants and even stars, as well as mythical creatures such as Chimeras, Harpies, Sphinxes, Cyclopes, giants, centaurs, satyrs, gryphons, lycanthropes, mermen and mermaids. One can also find an early lavish illustration of the North American turkey cock (Gallus Indicus), an insight into uterine malformations, and depictions of Chinese, Sumatran, Java, American and African people. The second part of the work is taken up with additional entries to Aldrovandi’s animal history, describing other monsters and, remarkably, some exotic animals like llamas, hippopotami and pelicans, all with related illustrations. This copy was bought by, and most likely bound for, the Austrian nobleman Wolfgang Engelbert von Auersperg (1610-1673), governor of Carniola and brother of Emperor Leopold I’s prime minister. A fine book collector and munificent patron, especially of Italian culture, he organised in his private garden in Ljubljana one of the earliest representation of an opera in Central Europe. "Described are numerous American birds and beasts with native names cited, including an ‘Elaphocamelus,’ i.e. a llama." Alden, 642/2.
