This auction consisted of select marbles, bronzes, ceramics and other art objects from the collection of Aleksandr Nelidov [1836-1910] aka Alexander Nelidow. With thanks to Wikipedia for the following: "Studied at St. Petersburg University. Entered diplomatic service in 1855. Secretary to the Russian embassies at Athens, Munich and Vienna. Councillor to the Russian embassy in Constantinople, 1872. Ambassador to Saxony, 1879. Ambassador to Italy, 1897-1903. Ambassador to France, 1903-1910." This sale at Galerie Georges Petit featured the so-called Alexander Nelidow bronze statuette [Lot 43], also known as Alexander with the Lance, a reference to Alexander the Great. This controversial piece, described in the past as an ancient Roman bronze, may more accurately be said to be a Renaissance statuette. Currently housed at the Fogg Art Museum.

8 Villa Pamphilia eiusque palatium, cum suis prospectibus, statuae, fontes, vivaria, theatra, areolae, plantarum, viarumque ordines, cum eiusdem villae absoluta Delineatione
Roma, Italia Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi [Io. Iocabi de Rubeis] Presumed First Edition Quarter-leather Very Good Minus Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall Barrière, Dominique [Dominicus] 
No date. Likely a first edition from around the time of the death of Camillo Pamphili in 1666, but possibly dating from the 1670s. Approximately 16.25 x 11.5 inches. Bound in later, 18th century [?] brown quarter calf, with somewhat faded gilt-stamped lettering and decorative devices to the spine, and with complementary marbled paper hardboards in tones of dark and light greens. Spine and boards much rubbed. Large losses at board corners. Hinges still strong and text block firmly bound in. With illustrated half title page, portrait page of "Camillus Pamphilius," and 60 full-page copper plates by Dominique Barrière, including 41 statues and 19 busts from the buildings and gardens of the Villa Pamphili. The complete edition believed issued with 84 engraved plates. The present copy lacking full title page, two-page dedication, 9 plates of statues, and 3 of busts, and also lacking 10 plates [5 wide-angle landscape, 1 plan or layout, and 4 fountain views] by Giovanni Battista Falda. Rag content, hand-made pages. Pages on the whole quite sturdy though thickness varies from page to page. Half title page with copper engraved title vignette, with the Pamphili coat of arms. Portrait of Camillus Pamphilius by: "Gio. Batista Gaulus Genouen pinx. (may be Giovanni Battista Gaulli also known as Baciccio, or Baciccia), L. Visscher Sculp." The 2nd statue plate, Venus Marina Genetrix Alma, charmingly hand-colored. Iulia Augusta plate with tidewater mark at upper margin. Apollo plate with tidewater mark at upper margin and into plate. Occasional light to moderate foxing and/or soiling to plates, mostly restricted to the margins. Quite a few plates impressively clean and free of significant demerits. Pastedowns and opposite FEPs very age-toned. First several pages dog-earred at top and bottom corners, last several at bottom corners. A Very Good Minus copy in a Fair Only binding. Rare in any condition. According to Dumbarton Oaks: "The Pamphili were a Roman dynasty. Giovanni Battista Pamphili [1574-1655] became Pope Innocent X in 1644. His nephew, Camillo Pamphili [1622-1666], was a Cardinal." Christie's comments: "The Villa Pamphili was the last and most magnificent of the Roman villas built in the 16th- and 17th- centuries: the construction of the villa, under the architect G.F. Grimaldi and the sculptor Algardi, lasted from 1644 to 1648, and the gardens were laid out in 1650. The house included some of the finest stucco work of the 17th century, and a main feature of the gardens was the collection of Roman and Greek statuary, displayed in niches in the facade of the villa and in the grounds. Shortly after this collection was installed, Pamphili commissioned Barrière -- one of the pre-eminent architectural draughtsmen in Rome in the 1640 and 1650s - to create copper plates (some of which survive) showing views of the Villa and a number of the statues; this commission was probably executed by Barrière (together with Carlo Orlandi, thought to be an assistant or student) between 1652 and 1657, when payments to them are recorded. After Camillo Pamphili's death in 1666, the plates were inherited by his son Giambattista, who presumably arranged the publication of Villa Pamphilia by de Rossi." Wikipedia states: "Barrière was born at Marseilles in about 1622. He spent most of his career in Rome, where he engraved a considerable number of plates, after Claude and other landscape painters, as well as other subjects. They are neatly etched in the manner of Stefano della Bella. He died in Rome in 1678." Grazie tanto a Furlanetto Stampe Antiche per il seguenti: [Abbiamo] il piacere di proporre la vendita di alcune stampe antiche di statue di Villa Pamphili, una prestigiosa villa romana, tratte da un'opera dedicata all'edificio e al suo parco. L'imponente costruzione principale fu edificata in pochi anni per onorare l'ascesa al Soglio Pontificio di Innocenzo X, al secolo Giovanni Battista Pamphili. Fu suo nipote ad ordinare l'arricchimento della villa barocca e del suo giardino attraverso una serie di migliorie tra cui la disposizione della collezione di statue antiche nel parco, tra le sale del palazzo e nelle nicchie della facciata. Come sovente capitava nelle migliori famiglie, come estrema esaltazione tra i vivi e per i posteri, si diede l'incarico a uno tra i migliori architetti romani di origine francese, Dominique Barrière, di eseguire alcuni disegni da cui poi trarre le incisioni da raccogliere in un volume commemorativo. Il Barrière vi lavorò per cinque anni tra il 1652 e il 1657, ma sarà dopo la dipartita del nipote di Innocenzo X nel 1666 che il volume in folio vedrà la luce, composto da 82 incisioni di cui 10 tra vedute della villa e fontane opera del bravissimo Giovanni Battista Falda e tutte le altre illustranti le numerose statue che indubbiamente caratterizzavano soprattutto il giardino.

Paris Imprimerie Georges Petit 1924 First Edition Paperback Very Good Folio - over 12" - 15" tall 
Ce n'est pas une édition bilingue. Texte en français uniquement, pas en anglais. Il a été tire de cette édition 50 exemplaires tirés sur vélin des papeteries de Rives, numéroté à la presse. Cependant, cette copie manque un certain nombre. This is not a bilingual edition. Text in French only, not in English. 50 copies only were issued on special Rives vellum paper, here a sturdy card stock. However, this copy is unnumbered. Presumed printed and bound in France. 15 x 11 inches. A paperback with plain beige wrappers with European-style over-wrappers. The front over-wrapper with red- and black-stamped lettering and also with a small monochrome illustration pasted in to a blind-stamped space, all to a handsome effect. Mild age-toning around the over-wrapper edges, else impressively clean. Front wrapper and over-wrapper with half-inch separation at top of spine, a minor issue. The text block has integrity. With 25 numbered pages, interspersed with 4 tipped-in B&W figures, and with 8 additional images constituting 7 monochrome plates. The plate sheets with corresponding tissue guards in fine condition. An impressively clean and presentable copy. A few of the pages remain unopened, hence not fully read. Deemed Very Good. This catalog details an amber Kouros or Apollo discovered at Fiumicino, Italy, not far from Rome.
