Künstler, I,68. - Im Auftrag des niederländischen Statthalters und englischen Königs Wilhelm III von Oranien-Nassau kolorierte und "vergrößerte" Anna Beek (1657-1717) eine Reihe von Ansichten, in dem sie das Originalblatt auseinander schnitt, auf größerem Papier - mit Zwischenraum - montierte und dann mit ihren bekannten, kräftigen (leuchtenden) Farben kolorierte. Sie verwandte Ansichten von Braun-Hogenberg, Janssonius oder Merian, die dann nach der Kolorierung zu einem großen Ansichtenwerk zusammengebunden wurden. Die Qualität des Kolorits ist in etwa vergleichbar mit dem legendären Kolorit des van Santen aus dem Atlas van der Hem. Der Atlas wurde in den 50er Jahren des 20.

        Nova relatio historica de statu rei Christianae In Iaponia, et de Qvabacvndoni, hoc est, monarchae Iaponici trucidatione binis epistolis

      Ioannis Albini, Mainz 1598 - RARE FIRST EDITION FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. 93 (i.e. 95) (i). Roman letter. Small woodcut printer’s device on title, woodcut initials, head and tail-pieces, light general browning (poor quality paper). A good copy in modern calf antique. Rare first edition of these two important and detailed letters by Frois, the first concerning the state of the Christian leaders and Jesuit missions in Japan in 1595 and the second dealing with the death of Hidetsugu the nephew and retainer of Hideyoshi (referred to in this letter by his common name Taicosama). The Portuguese Jesuit Frois was one of the leading members of the Jesuit mission in Japan and his reports are highly esteemed for their attention to detail and concrete data. By the 1590s the predominately Jesuit Christian mission in Japan had made considerable progress, with nearly three hundred thousand converts. Frois worked for some years under the Provincial of India in charge of reporting on East Asia to the church in Europe, and in 1563, at the age 31, he arrived in Japan, at Nagasaki. In 1565 he journeyed to Kyoto, but with the downfall of his protector, Ashikaga Yoshiteru, he was forced to take refuge in Sakai. In 1569 he met Nobunaga, (the first of the great Japanese Generals who nearly unified Japan under his leadership) and received permission to proselytize. He spent the ensuing years in missionary work while writing The History of Portuguese Territories in East India. In his capacity as interpreter he travelled widely in Japan, was party to much inside information on affairs of State and witnessed many of the events that shaped Japan for some 250 years. The first letter is a general review of the year recounting events of especial importance with respect to the Society, dealing with particular places and Jesuit residences, providing detailed accounts of their political, social and religious circumstances. The second work is an extraordinary account of the death of Hidetsugu who was nominally the regent of Japan or Kanpaku, though all power effectively resided with his uncle Hideyoshi. Hideyoshi had made Hidetsugu, his only relative, his heir, though with the birth of Hideyoshi’s son in 1593 to his mistress, this situation became untenable. Finally, in 1595, Hidetsugu was accused of plotting a coup and ordered to commit suicide, his allies were banished and his children and mistresses executed, with the exception of his one month old daughter. Frois’ account is particularly detailed and knowledgeable giving much detail on the complex political background to the events and paints a picture of Hideyoshi as a cruel and vindictive leader. A good copy of these important letters from a most important period in Japanese history. BM STC C16th Ger. p.324. Streit, IV, p. 498. Not in Cordier, Japonica. Latin [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Iaponiae Insulae, map, anno 1603, Ortelius, contemporary full co

      Ortelius Abraham, 1527-1598 - Iaponiae Insulae, map, anno 1603, Ortelius, contemporary full co Coppermap, edited by Abraham Ortelius, in Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, latin edition, anno 1603, full coloured, little brownish on margins, some old restorations on margins. Plate size: 358 x 465 mm. Reference: vdB Nr. 165: "Luis Teixeira, a Portuguese cartographer, sent Ortelius in 1592 two maps of China and Japan (Hessels letter 210) which are based on unknown sources (Meurer p. 253 - 254). Although as early as 1617 the more accurate map of Japan by Blancus appeared, this map retained influence until more than 50 years after another milestone map of Japan appeared, the Martini map of 1655". Since the middle ages Japan was depicted as Chipangu or Zipangu. The Portuguese reached Japan in 1542. Till in 1641 all foreigners, except the Dutch, had to leave the Country. The missionaries offered the most cartographic information about Japan. The data from the Jesuits was accordingly revised by the official Portuguese cartographs, like Fernao Vaz Dourado. He gave Japan the shape of the back of a tortoise, like it was depicted already in the second half of the sixteenth century. Thanks to the close contact between Ortelius with Luis Teixeira, the most modern map in 1595 was added to the Theatrum. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining and soiling to preliminaries, light foxing in a few places. Early owner signature of Thomas Parker to head of title page, markings and brief annotations in his hand to the margins of several leaves. A nice copy with an interesting association. * Later edition. First published in 1579 Kitchin's work is an important source of information on local courts and government. By outlining the differences between the previously undivided court, Kitchin, along with Coke, helped lay the foundations of modern legal theory. "In fact Kitchin was doing on a small scale what Coke was doing on a grand scale. Both were representatives of that school of literate Elizabethan lawyers...whose great and enduring work was the adaptation of medieval law and institutions to modern needs. Imagination necessarily played some part in this process of adaptation; and thus they are responsible not only for the enunciation of the rules of modern law, but also for legal and historical theories, the soundness of which was considered by many generations of lawyers and historians to be as incontestable as their statements of law." This copy belonged to Thomas Parker [1666-1

        Discours of voyages into ye Easte & West Indies.

      London, [printed by John Windet] for John Wolfe, [1598]. - 4 parts in 1 volume. Small 2o (28 x 18 cm). With engraved title-page, 9 engraved folding maps (including a detailed map depicting Arabia, Persia and India) and 3 engraved folding views. All newly engraved after the Dutch edition. Further with 4 woodcut maps in text and engraved maps on the 3 part-titles. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum, later spine-label and ties; recased, with modern endpapers. Kept in modern slipcase. First edition of the English translation of Linschoten’s highly important work, opening the East for trade by the Dutch and the English. Until its publication no other book contained any comparable amount of useful information on the East and West Indies and it soon became required reading for all navigators sailing to the East. With chapters on the coast of "Arabia Felix" (that is, the southern coast of the Arabian peninsula), the island of Ormus and Islamic India. Also with a detailed map depicting Arabia, Persia and India by Langren. The interior has been taken from Gastaldi via Mercator’s world map of 1569, but has been given interesting improvements: "The surprising fact about the representation of the [Arabian] peninsula is the close resemblance of the outline to that of a modern map when compared with other engraved maps of the time. There is a vague suggestion of the Qatar peninsula, which is not seen again until the nineteenth century" (Tibbets). - The book is divided into four parts. The first treats the East Indies, including eastern Africa and Arabia and extending to regions as far east as Japan. The second book describes the navigation of the coasts of West Africa around the Cape of Good Hope to Arabia, together with the coasts of the New World. Book three, based on the discoveries of the Portuguese Royal pilot Diego Affonso, contains sailing directions from Portugal to India, and instructions for sailing in the East Indies, from island to island. Similar instructions are given for the New World, particularly Brazil and Spanish America. Book four contains detailed information on the taxes and other income that the King of Spain extracted from his territories, both at home and overseas. - With the maps and plates trimmed closely to the edges and only one unobtrusively restored tear. A very good copy, with only a few occasional spots. Binding recased but also in very good condition. Alden/Landis 598/57. Borba de Moraes, p. 488. Sabin 41374. Cf. Nave, Philologia Arabica 22.

Abraham Ortelius (Ortels, Orthellius, Wortels, * 2. April 1527 in Antwerpen; † 28. Juni 1598 ebenda) war ein flämischer Geograph und Kartograf. Er entstammt einer von Augsburg in die südlichen Niederlande eingewanderten Familie. Er studierte erst bei seinem Onkel Jakob van Meteren und dann auf eigene Initiative Griechisch, Latein und Mathematik in Antwerpen. Ortelius war zunächst Karten- und Buchhändler, bildete sich aber zum Kartografen weiter. Laut John Vermeulen hat Ortelius mit seinem Zeitgenossen Gerhard Mercator zusammen gearbeitet. Am 20. Mai 1570 erschien seine erste Ausgabe vom Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, der ersten Sammlung von Landkarten in Buchform. Atlanten trugen damals noch nicht diesen Namen. Diese Sammlung wurde zwischen 1570 und 1612 in 42 Ausgaben und in 7 Sprachen veröffentlicht: Latein, deutsch, flämisch, französisch, spanisch, englisch und italienisch. Anders als seine Berufskollegen referenzierte er klar die Quellen seiner Karten und Texten. Das Werk enthält unter anderem eine Abbildung der bis 1492 bekannten Welt und war damit bereits zum Zeitpunkt der Kartenerstellung rückblickend. Weiterhin häufiger referenziert wird eine Karte von Ortelius mit Europa, Mittelmeer, Nordafrika und Arabien im Fokus die aus dem Jahr 1601 (andere Schätzung: 1603 bis 1612) stammt. Sie trägt den Titel Geographia sacra (heilige Geografie) trägt und weiterhin eine verkleinerte, eingebettete Weltkarte enthält. Die Detail-Eintragungen wurden primär für die Levante und Mesopotamien vorgenommen, also mit den in der Bibel erwähnten Orten bis hin zum Versuch Orte aus der biblischen Paradiesbeschreibung zu fixieren. Allein schon die Darstellung der Flussläufe in Mesopotamien fällt dabei eher ungenau aus. Das Werk existiert in mehreren Versionen mit wechselnden Textfeldern und wurde oftmals coloriert.

The inset shows the oracle of Jupiter Amman, supposedly situated in present day Libya, where Alexander went to ask what would be the result of his expedition. He also expressed the desire to be buried there, but was eventually buried in Alexandria in Egypt. Ortelius derives his information on the oracle from Lucretius, Solinias, Ovidius, Lucanus and many others. He complains that more attention is paid by classical authors to Alexanders personal habits than to the regions and territories he conquered." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Arnhem: Johan Jansonius, 1598. Oblong folio, woodcuts, 15 plates and maps; large map of Bali, woodcut of birds and 24 coastal profiles; some early underlinings in the text; contemporary vellum, slightly stained, an excellent copy. The first Dutch voyage to the East Indies: this is one of two original descriptions of the voyage that survive (the other is by Lodewyckszoon). Lach, who points out that "Firsthand reports of insular Southeast Asia arrived in the Netherlands with Cornelis de Houtman's fleet in August, 1597", also notes that Rouffaer and Ijzerman have conjectured that "the author or more likely authors [of this narrative] had apparently sailed on the "Hollandia"; one of them was possibly a midshipman named Pieter Stockmans...".This very rare and important book gives a day-by-day narrative of this highly significant adventure, the first of what was to be an almost endless series of voyages made by the Dutch in the most ambitious and successful of all colonial ventures. The history of the VOC and their trading from bases in the East Indies effectively begins here, with a speculative voyage commissioned by a group of nine major Amsterdam merchants in 1595-1597. "In 1598, the year after its return, no fewer than twenty-five ships were sent out by merchants of the provinces of Holland and Zeeland alone..." (Lach).The narrative, richly illustrated with maps, views and plates, includes the often lacking Appendix, a pictorial pilot with woodcuts illustrating the coasts of the Cape of Good Hope, the waters of S. Bras, the Capes of St. Just and Augusta, and parts of the coasts of Madagascar, Sumatra and Java, as well as a fine full-page engraved map of the island of Bali.This is the first edition in Latin and thus the first international edition; a Dutch-language edition appeared in the same year, while a different, shorter version in Dutch had appeared the year before (entitled Verhael vande reyse rather than Journael vande reyse, it evidently derived from the same original journal; it was known to Tiele at the end of the nineteenth century in a single copy, and Alden in turn could cite only the Nederlandsch Historisch Scheepvaart Museum copy in 1980). Three issues of this Latin version are known: this version for distribution by an Arnhem publisher, another with the Paris address of Adrianus Périer, and - most often seen - an issue with the Middleburg address of Bernardus Langenese. This excellent copy of the Arnhem issue in original binding has the ownership inscription of Caspar a Mekerad, dated 1600, on the title-page.

        Prima pars descriptionis itineris navalis in Indiam Orientalem

      Amsterdam: Cornelis Nicolaus, 1598. Quarto, folding engraved plate, engraved map on the title-page, 48 engraved maps and illustrations; several woodcut coastal profiles and charts in the text; neat library-stamps on title; an excellent copy in old boards, respined in calf. A. The first Dutch voyage to the East Indies: this is one of two original descriptions of the voyage that survive (the other is attributed to Pieter Stockmans and others). This narrative is based on the original journal of Lodewyckszoon, one of the officers of the fleet, who sailed aboard the Mauritius - and so differs substantially from the other account.Houtman's voyage was the very first trading fleet sent by the Dutch to the East Indies: four ships were sent out in 1595 under the command of Cornelis de Houtman and Pieter Dirckz, three of which returned to the Netherlands in 1597. Their venture prompted the departure of several further fleets, culminating in the establishment of the VOC in 1602.The most significant geographical achievement of Houtman's voyage was that by sailing round Java it proved that it could not be part of the supposed southland (see Schilder, Australia Unveiled, ch. VI). The map on the title-page of this account shows the oceans and coasts navigated between Europe and the East Indies, including the promontory of a southern continent, with the names "Beach", "Lucach" and "Maletur", in close proximity to an island, "Java Minor".Lach points out that the book "contains the first continuous account of Bali in any European language, Its prosperity is described in... great detail...". The long and detailed description of Java is probably derived from Portuguese accounts, and "contains information about Portuguese trade and forts in the Moluccas where De Houtman's ships did not visit. Perhaps it came from Pedro de Tayde, the Malaccan-born Portuguese pilot who was so helpful to De Houtman's men in Bantam. In any case, it has not been found in any of the printed Portuguese sources".This is the first edition in Latin of this narrative: editions in Dutch and French were also published in Amsterdam in the same year. The engraved maps and illustrations are common to all three editions and are listed by Tiele (pp. 125-7), who notes that the folding plate of the bazaar at Bantam (present in this copy) is nearly always lacking.

        Manuscript collection of 29 decrees concerning the treatment of Indians on encomiendas

      1598 - Treatment of South American Indians in the Century of Discovery, an exceptional Decree evidencing the interest in the welfare of the native population. 1598. Asuncion [Paraguay]. In folio (size varies somewhat). 7 ff. (15 written sides) in Spanish cursive, signed by Hernandarias and others on final leaf; offered with 7 ff. (13 sides) of additional MS material bound before and after the decrees. Unbound. Exceptional 16th century manuscript written in Paraguay, including a collection of 29 decrees on the treatment of Indians under the encomienda system, promulgated during the earliest years of Hernandarias’s first tenure as Governor of Rio de la Plata province (Asuncion and Buenos Aires). Common to many 16th century Spanish colonies, the encomienda system effectively forced the indigenous inhabitants into slave labor in exchange for the salvation of their souls. The present decrees are important evidence of an interest in the welfare of the Indians prior to Hernandarias’ outright abolition of the entire encomienda system in 1603. “The feathered and painted beings the Spaniards encountered in America confounded the entire Spanish nation, from King to commoner. Who was the Indian? Was he man or beast? Was he a rational being? Could his land be expropriated? Could he be made to work and pay tribute? If he were mere beast, why should he not be enslaved? What type of religious instruction should he be given? Should the converted Indian be tithed? Could he be left to live alone, caring for his own needs, even governing himself as the Spaniards did? Today such questions seem shocking. But in the sixteenth century they were the order of the day” (Maria Paz Haro) Hernandarias’ proclamations of 1598-9 show a significant advance in attitudes towards these questions. The first few ordinances describe the burden placed on His Majesty’s Royal Conscience regarding the spiritual salvation of his native subjects, and regulate the effective teaching of the Christian religion to Indians (particularly singling out children for instruction). Regulations 5,6, and 8 forbid the forced transfer of Indians from one encomienda to another without permission from the governor; regulations 10, 11, and 12 ban general mistreatment of Indians, interfering with their fishing and hunting, and breaking up their families. At the same time, other ordinances – eg 18 – restrict the right of the Indian himself to migrate or travel freely. According to #25, Indians are obliged to provide food and shelter to any passing Spaniards for three days, but need not provide them with chickens or pigs, even if they have them to hand. The travelers must pay for any further hospitality required after those three days. In most cases, specific fines and prison sentences are set forth to punish disobedience – with all proceeds going to the Crown, of course, rather than the Indian victim. Key to Hernandarias’ legacy is his celebrated abolition of the punitive encomienda system beginning in 1603, which is often viewed as an enlightened response to his own upbringing as a criollo. Yet a recent review of native rights under colonial rule (Vaquero, 1993) suggests that Hernandarias’ eventual support for the abolition was very much an about-face, at odds with his earlier stance as a ruthless administrator: “Hernandarias was radically opposed to both the suppression of personal service and a tax [rather than forced labor] on the Indians on his lands. As his reputation was very great in Paraguayan society, his opposing position hindered, at first, the implementation of the Ordenances [abolishing encomiendas]. But his close relationship with the Jesuits, his frequent dealings with them, his friendship with Diego de Torres and his spirit of resilience and Christian sensibilities, made him reconsider his position so far to become an apostle of the new ideas and even renounce the lavish encomienda he held in Paraguay.” (Vaquero, trans., p. 160). The present document, then, provides evi
