Lot 191 | ZONCA Vittorio (1568-1602) - Novo teatro di machine et Edificii Per varie et sicure operationi co' le loro figure tagliate in Rame
ZONCA Vittorio (1568-1602) - Novo teatro di machine et Edificii Per varie et sicure operationi co' le loro figure tagliate in Rame. Padua: Francesco Bertelli, 1621. Second edition of Zonca's work first published in 1607 by Francesco Bertelli's father Pietro. Both were active as publishers and engravers, and Pietro may have engraved these plates which were derived from the unpublished Trattato di architectura of the Sienese architect-engineer Francesco di Giorgio Martini (1439-1501). The present work is noted for containing the first illustration of a gig-mill for raising nap on cloth, and for spreading knowledge of the mangle (Norman). Riccardi describes this edition as 'Rare'. Berlin Katalog 1775; Norman 2281 (first edition 1607); Riccardi I, 669. Folio (296 x 205mm). Engraved title within architectural border, 42 full-page engraved illustrations, woodcut initials (title lightly faded, some occasional light waterstaining and spotting). Contemporary vellum, author in manuscript on spine (chipping to spine, light staining).
