  • Fine map of Mantova from the french edition of Atlas major published in Amsterdam in 1667. The famous Blaeu’s firm was founded in 1596 by Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) then continued by his two sons Cornelius (1616-1648) and Johannis (1596-1673). Their greatest cartographic achievement was the publication of the magnificent Atlas Major with 600 maps all finely engraved and embellished by elaborate cartouches, heraldic detail and especially by splendid calligraphy. The Atlas Major represents one of the finest moments in cartography. The firm shut down in 1672 when their offices were destroyed during the Great Amsterdam fire. A year afterwards Johannis Blaeu died. The firm’s surviving stocks of plates and maps were gradually dispersed, some of the plates being bought by F. de Wit and Schenk and Valck, before final closure in 1695.

    Bella veduta panoramica della città di Mantova incisa all’acquaforte da Francesco Cepparuli tratta dalla non comune opera “Lo Stato Presente di Tutti i Paesi e Popoli del Mondo … parte dell’Italia dedicata a Ignazio Boncompagni Ludovisi…” pubblicata a Napoli presso Vincenzo Mazzola nel 1754: si tratta della celebre versione non autorizzata dell’opera di Tommaso Salmon (Lo Stato Presente di Tutti i Popoli …) edita a Venezia tre anni prima (1751) presso l’editore Albrizzi. Questa edizione di Napoli è interamente illustrata con i rami incisi da Francesco Cepparuli ed è conosciuta come uno dei primi esempi di plagio editoriali.
    Il Cepparuli, poco noto artista napoletano specializzato in incisioni ornamentali, fregi, bordure, frontespizi e pavesi, pur copiando i rami dell’opera del Salmon pavesa numerose differenze nell’inciso e un tratto più veloce. Interessante variante ben conosciuta e ricercata dai collezionisti.

    Very fine prospect view of Mantova from Topographiae Italiae published by Merian in Franckfurt in 1688. Mattheus Merian was a notable Swiss engraver, born in Basle in 1593, who subsequently studied in Zurich and then moved to Frankfurt where he met Theodore de Bry, whose daughter he married in 1617. They had numerous children together, including a daughter, Anna Maria Sibylla Merian, born in 1647. She became a pioneering naturalist and illustrator. Two of their sons followed Merian into publishing. In Frankfurt Mattheus Merian spent most of his working life and with Martin Zeiller (1589-1661), a German Geographer, and later with his own son, he produced a series of Topographia consisting of 21 volumes including a very large number of town plans as well as maps of most countries. He also took over and completed the later parts and editions of the Grand Voyages and Petits Voyages originally started by De Bry in 1590.
