VALLET, Pierre (ca 1575-1657).
Paris: Pierre Vallet, 1608 Folio (13 5/8 x 9 inches). Etched architectural title-page with figures of Clusius and de L'Obel flanking a view of a formal garden with glass-houses beyond, engraved portraits of Vallet and Jean Robin, 73 unnumbered etched plates of flowers (one or two insignificant spots). 18th-century mottled calf (expertly rebacked preserving the original spine). Provenance: The ex Libris inscription of a Catholic Library in Lyons dated 1713 on the title-page, and one or two annotations to Latin plant names. First edition. According to Blunt this is the first important florilegium and "a work of great beauty." At the beginning of the 17th century Marie de' Medici's great passion for flowers and plants set the fashion for floral themes at the French court. Le Jardin du Roi is Pierre Vallet's hommage to the queen, executed in part to provide patterns for embroideries, and in part to document some of the exotic species bought back from Spain and the islands off the coast of Guinea by Jean Robin the younger. Vallet, born in Orlains about 1575, moved to Paris where he worked as an engraver. He was appointed to the court of Henri IV as brodeur ordinaire de Sa Majestee and, later, vallet de chambre du roy. As engraver he produced illustrations for 'Touffe de Fleurs' (1601), 'Aventures amoureuses de Thaeagaene et Chariclée' (1613) and 'La Symbole de Nices' (1642). In Paris he met Jean Robin, who directed the Royal Gardens of the Louvre for Henri III, Henri IV and Louis XIII. Tournefort refers to Robin as the most celebrated botanist of his time and Linnaeus n … [Click Below for Full Description]

SKYTTE, Johan.
Stockholm, Andream Gutterwitz, 1608. 4:o. (48) s. Fläckig och med samtida bläckanteckningar i marginalen. Häftad, i senare pappersomslag med handskriven etikett. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Collijn sp. 858. Warmholtz 3366. Första upplagan. Ett omtryck kom året därpå. Johan Skytte (1577-1645) född Schroderus, var diplomat, riksråd, universitetskansler m.m. samt lärare åt kronprins Gustav Adolf. Han användes flitigt som politisk talesman åt Karl IX och sedermera för Gustav II Adolf. Detta viktiga tal, som hölls inför ständerna 1603 för att förklara nödvändigheten av att föra ett expansivt krig i Baltikum mot Polen, är enligt Erland Sellberg (SBL XXXII. s. 507) ett klassiskt exempel på talekonst, distinkt och välbalanserat. Karl IX blev så imponerade att han lät översätta det till tyska, och trycka det i två upplagor.

PANTOJA, Diego de /ALBERTINUS, Aegidius (tr.).
Munich Adam Berg 1608. 4to, 167, (1) blank pp. Bound in later marbled paper over boards, covers worn, inner hinge cracked but firm, inked Jesuit library inscription dated 1700 on title, small wormholes on title, minor foxing throughout, an unusually crisp, well-preserved copy for German 17th-century books, excellent. Rare first German edition of this influential Jesuit letterbook from China describing Matteo Ricci’s acceptance at the court of Peking and marking a shift in European perceptions of China from "a view of China as seen from Macao to a view of China from within." (de Paula Nogueira, p. 426) Unlike many Jesuit letters which were primarily concerned with listing conversionary exploits, Pantoja’s letter is a genuine travel narrative, chronicling the trip from Nanjing to Peking up the Grand Canal, laced with colorful descriptions of local customs, food and dress. It is also notable for its deep respect for the Chinese civilization, which would be the trademark of the Jesuit enterprise in China. The Spanish Jesuit Diego de Pantoja (1571-1618) arrived in Macao in 1599, and was soon sent to join Matteo Ricci in Nanjing, where he had established himself after his first failed attempt to reach Peking. In 1600, they set out together on another attempt to reach the emperor in the Forbidden City. On the way, they were briefly arrested, but released upon condition to send some Western-style clocks and oil paintings to the emperor. They arrived in Peking in January of 1601 and were well received. Although Ricci and Pantoja never met the emperor in person, a lively if at times … [Click Below for Full Description]
