BALDINUCCI, FILIPPO. 1625-1696.
Notizie de' professori del disegno da Cimabue in qua: per le quali si dimostra come, e per chi le bell' arti di pittura, scultura, e architettura lasciata la rozzezza delle maniere greca, e gottica, si siano in questi secoli ridotte all'antica loro perfezione. Florence: Per Santi Franchi, 1681. [18], 68, [4] pp. Folding table, engraved initials, head- and tail-pieces. 4to (260 x 195 mm). 20th century stiff paper boards. Occasional spotting, pencil notes to head of title page, else very good.

First edition. The first volume and inaugural notice of what would become the most extensive history of art of the late Renaissance, completed in 6 volumes published between 1681 and 1728, which documented the period from 1260 to 1670 (the period covered here is 1260 – 1300). Baldinucci’s “notice” in this scarce first volume attested to his self-confidence in embarking on an art history project to rival Vasari. Although often reprinted, this first volume is quite scarce. A landmark work in the development of modern art history.
