Rare Books, Prints, Autographs and Documents.

Via dei Soncin, 28 35122 Padua Italy

Bado and Mart Auctions is pleased to present the 2024 Spring Auction to be held on 10 April at 15.00 CET.

The auction consists of 378 lots including a large selection of books from the 15th to the 20th century, a small selection of prints and a varied assortment of autographs and documents.

The works offered for sale cover a wide range of subjects, with a particular focus on volumes on science and mathematics, medicine, architecture, local history and literature.

Prints range from Piranesi to Manet, from Van Dyck to the colourful and curious engravings of the Imagerie Epinal.

The autographs focus on literary personalities, engineers, philosophers and royalty, while the documents intersperse themselves in the complex social fabric of the French Revolution and colonial policy, as well as curious and interesting local histories and Malta and its order of knights.

Particularly noteworthy is the section dedicated to books, which opens with an interesting and important mathematical manuscript that sets out the mathematical theory of Christopher Clavius in a detailed and concise manner.

This is followed by the 'Münster Cosmography' (lot 62), an enormous compendium containing more than 1030 woodcut engravings in text depicting maps and views of cities, maps, portraits, coats of arms, historical scenes, costumes, animals, plants.

Lot 65, the 'Trois dialogues de l'exercice de sauter, et voltiger en l'air' by Arcangelo Tuccaro, is an extremely rare first edition as well as the oldest treatise on acrobatics and one of the most beautiful 16th century French picture books, with 87 woodcut plates.

One of the 'Top Lots' is undoubtedly Lot 141, Ornithology. Storia Naturale degli Uccelli, Florence, 1767-76 by Saverio MANETTI in 10 volumes. In the 4 volumes of plates there are 612 progressively numbered engravings. The 600 engravings are by Vanni, Lorenzi, Manetti, the last 12 are added by Martinet.

Also of considerable importance is the local Venetian and Florentine history with lot 139 ZUCCHI, Teatro delle fabbriche piu cospicue in prospettiva, della città di Venezia. Venice, Giambattista Albrizzi, [1739-40] and lot 143 ZUCCHI, Giuseppe. Vedute delle ville, e d'altri luoghi della Toscana. Florence, Giuseppe Allegrini, 1744, with 50 plates of views of Tuscan villas, very important for the history of Italian architecture and gardens.

Of considerable medical-scientific importance are the works of HAMUSCO DE VALVERDE (lot 69), PETRIOLI (lot 138) and PMM MORGAGNI, De Sedibus et causis Morborum. Venetiis, Ex typographia Remondiniana, 1761 (lot 165)

Enriching the catalogue is another scientific cornerstone, also included in the "Printing and the Mind of Man" list, namely lot 150 EULER, Introductio in Analysin Infinitorum. Lausanne, Bousquet, 1748.

Of historical-archaeological scope are the two beautiful figurative works by Robert WOOD, centred on the ruins of Palmyra (lot 151) and Heliopolis, today's Baalbek in Lebanon (lot 154).

How not to mention lot 187, the most famous edition of Don Quixote in Spanish, a true masterpiece of typographic art, printed by Ibarra for the Real Academia and the imposing iconographic apparatus in aquatint for the Milanese sets of the La Scala theatre depicted in SANQUIRICO, a splendid specimen with even the autograph signature of Sanquirico himself (lot 266).

Finally, in the last part, a careful selection of works of Italian literature from the end of the 18th century to the beginning of the 20th century by authors such as Monti, Parini, Manzoni, Foscolo and D'Annunzio.
