        1617 Colerus Oeconomia Agriculture Cooking Beer Brewing Fishing Farming Bees

      Wittemberg : P. Hellwegs, 1617. - 1617 Colerus Oeconomia Agriculture Cooking Beer Brewing Fishing Farming Bees BEAUTIFUL Binding & Illustrations of Wittenberg Johannes Coler’s most famous work, ‘Oeconomia’ wasn’t his work at all! In 1591, he began collecting and summarizing his father’s works. He published these works as his own in the late 1500s, and they were reissued over a dozen times throughout the 17th-century. This work, also called ‘Rural and Domestic Economics’ was intended to be an advice book on agriculture; however, it was much more than that. This works gives advice on fishing, horticulture, farming, beer making, bread and cooking baking, and how to behave! These behaviors were given from a Lutheran perspective, as Colerus was a strong Protestant. However, this work was edited after his death to remove the Lutheran tones – to make it more marketable. His work gives a comprehensive look into European life before the Thirty Years’ War. Item number: #244 Price: $1500 COLERUS, Johannes. M.

        Amsterdam, Korenbeurs - naar Adolph van der Laan.

      LEVENDIG GEZICHT OP DE AMSTERDAMSE KOREN BEURS?Gezigt van de Koorn-Beurs, staande op 't Water by de Oude-Brug 't Amsterdam, gebouwt in 't Jaar 1617?? Gravure gedrukt van twee koperplaten vervaardigd tussen 1751 en 1766. Gegraveerd door Jan Schenk naar een tekening van Adolph van der Laan, uitgegeven door Leon Schenk. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 56 x 96 cm.De economische groei van Amsterdam in de 17de-eeuw had gevolgen voor de organisatie van de handel. Beurshandelaren kregen in 1611 de beschikking over een eigen gebouw, zodat zij niet meer in de open lucht hoefden te vergaderen. Koren- en zouthandelaren bleven echter op straat bijeenkomen. Bij slecht weer schuilden zij onder de luifels van de winkels langs het Damrak, waarover winkeliers en bewoners klaagden.Onder leiding van stadsbouwmeester Hendrick de Keyser, die ook de koopmansbeurs op de Dam had gebouwd, werd in 1616/1617 een aparte beurs voor graanhandelaren neergezet. Een houten gebouw op palen in het nog ongedempte Damrak. (Op de prent zien we links de Oudebrug en rechts de toren van de Oude Kerk.)In de korenbeurs van Amsterdam werd het graan dat per schip uit de landen rond de Oostzee werd ingevoerd, doorverkocht aan handelaren uit heel Europa. De beurs bestond uit een vierkant plein, met gaanderijen op pilaren. Tegen de muren van de galerijen stonden kistjes die monsters van het graan bevatten. Kooplieden hadden goed licht nodig, omdat zij de monsters op kleur keurden. Graan dat daarbij op de beursvloer viel, mocht de marktmeester houden. Nadat een graanpartij was verkocht, zorgden de korenmeters en korenzetters er voor dat het graan verdeeld werd via door de gildes vastgestelde standaardmaten.De beurs was het centrale bouwwerk van een reeks gebouwen die in de eerste helft van de 17de-eeuw in Amsterdam werden gebouwd voor de bloeiende handel, waardoor Amsterdam zich in de Gouden Eeuw tot de stapelplaats van Europa ontwikkelde.In 1768 werd de korenbeurs herbouwd in steen. Dat gebouw bleef staan tot het in 1884 werd afgebroken. Thans staat hier de Beurs van Berlage (en verderop links het Centraal Station).Prijs: 3.650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        Historia Josephi patriarchae, ex Alcorano, arabice. Cum triplici versione latina & scholiis Thomae Erpenii, cujus et alphabetum arabicum praemittitur. Surat Yusuf wa tahajji al-Arab.

      Typographia Erpeniana, Leyde 1617 - 72 pp. collated: A1 to S4, Arabic text with the Latin translation of Thomas Van Erpenius, 2 pages have ink markings in the margin, plus underlining on one of them, beautiful title frontispiece, cream parchment vellum original binding, the title on the spine was added later on, red calf title, small worm trail by the border of the top cover. Prior to the 19th century, European preoccupation with the Qur'an is normally associated with a desire to understand and refute rather than to appreciate. But in the case of the editor of this book, the interest in the Qur'an was primarily philological. Thomas Erpenius believed that the prerequisites for gaining a good initial grasp of Arabic were a grammar, a dictionary and the Qur'an. As the only Arabic text to be consistently fully vocalised, the Qur'an offers an ideal exercise for those wishing to improve their reading speed if not their understanding and it was to this end that Erpenius published the fully vocalised text of Surat Yusuf. Prefaced by some essential notes on phonetics and orthography (the TAHAJJI) and accompanied by two Latin versions of his own: the interlinear, which follows the Arabic word for word; and the marginal, which is a freer rendering. There follows a third translation, taken from the medieval Latin version first printed in Basel in 1543, and his own detailed philological notes to the Arabic text. Erpenius also remarks, in a note to Arabists, that it was the inaccuracy of this medieval version - the so called Cluniac version- and its even less faithful Italian and German derivatives that had led to a demand for a fresh translation. This part of the book concludes with Al Fatiha (the text of the opening chapter of the Qur'an), his own two versions and the Cluniac translation, together with a fourth translation by Guillaume Postel, first printed in that eccentric Frenchman’s Gammatica Arabica (Paris, c.1543).

The story of this horn (which was just one of other horns in the posession of the church - the Munster owned also a ‘hornÂ’ of a narwhale) and the role it played as an exhibition object in the church became just recently told in detail by Stefan Laube in his work: ‘Von der Reliquie zum Ding.

        Kaart van Zeeland - Petrus Kaerius, 1617.

      ZEELANDKopergravure uitgegeven door Petrus Kaerius (Pieter van den Keere) in 1617. Verso Latijnse tekst. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 35 x 47cm.De koperen plaat waar deze kaart van gedrukt is, was eerder door een anonieme graveur vervaardigd, maar kwam in handen van Petrus Kaerius. Daar waar de kostuumfiguren staan stond eerst een cartouche met tekst, maar om de kaart in overeenstemming te krijgen met de andere kaarten van zijn atlas, paste Kaerius de plaat aan. Nu zien we rechtsonder een gezicht op Middelburg met twee Zeeuwen ?Seelandi?, gekleed in de mode van die tijd. Links van deze cartouche een schaalstok omgeven door een rolwerkcartouche, waarboven het uitgeversimpressum ?Petrus keerius execud.? Linksboven een prachtig gegraveerde 32-delige kompasroos omgeven door schepen en zeemonster.De kaart werd opgenomen in Kaerius? atlas ?Germania Inferior?. In totaal beleefde deze atlas slechts drie edities: twee edities in het Latijn in 1617 en een in het Frans in 1622. Na de dood van zijn vrouw in 1623, kwam Kaerius in financi?le moeilijkheden en was hij verplicht zijn koperplaten te verkopen. De nieuwe eigenaar was Claes Jansz. Visscher, die de kaart voorzien zijn eigen naam opnieuw in de handel bracht. Met telkens kleine veranderingen werd deze kaart van Zeeland tot 1634 nog vijf maal uitgegeven.Prijs: ?1.650,-.

      ROTTERDAM PLATTEGROND - ZOALS HET WAS, BIJNA 450 JAAR GELEDENLater met de hand Gekleurde kopergravure, omstreeks 1617 uitgegeven door Lodovico Guicciardini. De prent maakte onderdeel uit van de Beschryvinghe van alle de Nederlanden, anderssins ghenoemt Neder-Duystlandt. Afm. (prent) 24,7 x 33,2 cm.Guicciardini (1521 - 1589) was een Italiaanse koopman die in Antwerpen leefde. Hij was de eerste die de Republiek der Zeventien Nederlanden uitvoerig beschreven heeft.Hoewel Guicciardini niet beschikte over wetenschappelijk verantwoorde historische kennis, somt hij in zijn Beschryvinghe allerlei wetenswaardigheden op die voor een toenmalige reiziger zeer interessant moeten zijn geweest. Over economische en staatkundige zaken, schilderkunst maar ook over taalkundige verhoudingen schreef Guicciardini met grote passie. Hij zweeg echter over de oorlogsperikelen waar de Nederlanden door geteisterd werden. Het idyllische beeld dat Guicciardini van 'zijn' Nederlanden geeft, is - zo schrijft hij uitdrukkelijk - gebaseerd op de politieke situatie van v??r 1560.Prijs: ?650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        Leo Belgicus - Pieter van den Keere, 1617.

      DE NEDERLANDSCHE LEEUW - SYMBOOL VAN DE LAGE LANDENKopergravure uitgegeven in 1617 door Petrus Kaerius (Pieter van den Keere). Verschenen in de atlas Germania Inferior, uitgegeven temidden van de 80-jarige oorlog. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 37 x 45,5 cm.De Nederlandse leeuw is een begrip. Het dier staat symbool voor de kracht en moed van het land. De leeuw speelt een belangrijke rol bij het voetbal in onze tegenwoordige tijd, maar de verbeelding van Nederland als leeuw werd ge?ntroduceerd in moeilijke tijden, aan het eind van de 16e eeuw. Vanaf het midden van de Tachtigjarige Oorlog stonden de Nederlanden model voor een reeks leeuwekaarten die op de markt kwamen.De leeuwekaart fungeerde niet alleen als nuttige landkaart, maar werd als statement vaak aan de wand gehangen. Een uiting van actief beleefd burgerschap, van trots, van zelfbewustzijn en diende in een handelskantoor of overheidsgebouw vaak als spectaculair visitekaartje.Met in het cartouche: ?Een kunstige en aardrijkskundige kaart in de gedaante van een leeuw die de 17 provinci?n van de Nederlanden voorstelt, waaraan de wapens van de afzonderlijke provincies zijn toegevoegd tezamen met de gebruikelijke grens van de provincies en hun stadhouders voor zover ze in het jaar 1559 door hun hoogste magistraat waren verdeeld en opgesteld.??Gallia Belgica was in de Romeinse tijd het noordelijke deel van Galli? tussen de Seine en de Rijn. Belgica werd als Latijnse naam later ook synoniem voor de 17 Provinci?n en de Lage Landen.Prijs: ? 14.500,- (incl. lijst).

        Amsterdam, Korenbeurs - naar Adolph van der Laan.

      LEVENDIG GEZICHT OP DE AMSTERDAMSE KOREN BEURS?Gezigt van de Koorn-Beurs, staande op 't Water by de Oude-Brug 't Amsterdam, gebouwt in 't Jaar 1617?? Gravure gedrukt van twee koperplaten vervaardigd tussen 1751 en 1766. Gegraveerd door Jan Schenk naar een tekening van Adolph van der Laan, uitgegeven door Leon Schenk. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 56 x 96 cm.De economische groei van Amsterdam in de 17de-eeuw had gevolgen voor de organisatie van de handel. Beurshandelaren kregen in 1611 de beschikking over een eigen gebouw, zodat zij niet meer in de open lucht hoefden te vergaderen. Koren- en zouthandelaren bleven echter op straat bijeenkomen. Bij slecht weer schuilden zij onder de luifels van de winkels langs het Damrak, waarover winkeliers en bewoners klaagden.Onder leiding van stadsbouwmeester Hendrick de Keyser, die ook de koopmansbeurs op de Dam had gebouwd, werd in 1616/1617 een aparte beurs voor graanhandelaren neergezet. Een houten gebouw op palen in het nog ongedempte Damrak. (Op de prent zien we links de Oudebrug en rechts de toren van de Oude Kerk.)In de korenbeurs van Amsterdam werd het graan dat per schip uit de landen rond de Oostzee werd ingevoerd, doorverkocht aan handelaren uit heel Europa. De beurs bestond uit een vierkant plein, met gaanderijen op pilaren. Tegen de muren van de galerijen stonden kistjes die monsters van het graan bevatten. Kooplieden hadden goed licht nodig, omdat zij de monsters op kleur keurden. Graan dat daarbij op de beursvloer viel, mocht de marktmeester houden. Nadat een graanpartij was verkocht, zorgden de korenmeters en korenzetters er voor dat het graan verdeeld werd via door de gildes vastgestelde standaardmaten.De beurs was het centrale bouwwerk van een reeks gebouwen die in de eerste helft van de 17de-eeuw in Amsterdam werden gebouwd voor de bloeiende handel, waardoor Amsterdam zich in de Gouden Eeuw tot de stapelplaats van Europa ontwikkelde.In 1768 werd de korenbeurs herbouwd in steen. Dat gebouw bleef staan tot het in 1884 werd afgebroken. Thans staat hier de Beurs van Berlage (en verderop links het Centraal Station).Prijs: 3.650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        ORATIONES TRES CUM INTERPRETATIONE LATINA

      Rome: Iacobus Mascardus, 1617. This small volume contains three of the great rhetorician's orations in parallel Greek and Latin text, in a lavishly decorated binding that has connections to the papacy or to an important Italian family that enjoyed papal favor. The symbol at the center of the boards here, showing the crossed keys and umbraculum, suggests that this might be a "sede vacante" binding: such an insignia was used by the Holy See when there was no sitting pope ("sede vacante" meaning "the seat being empty"). This symbol could also indicate possession by a family that had received a special grant from the pope to use the crossed keys and umbraculum. Among those so honored would have been the great lords who were invested with papal fiefs (for example, the Este, Farnese, and Montefeltro families). The absence of a coat of arms here might suggest that the present binding was not done for one of the great ducal houses, but rather for some other distinguished family. Whoever owned it--and the "S R" initials on the covers are probably those of the original owner--the decoration of our volume is certainly ornate enough to qualify it for distinguished shelves. The celebrated Attic orator and rhetorician Isocrates (436-338 B.C.) presided over a school of rhetoric in Athens for many decades. A shy man, he seldom spoke in public, but aired his political views in published speeches. He deplored the quarrelsomeness of the Greeks, and appealed to Philip of Macedon to lead them in a conquest of the Persian Empire, an undertaking realized by Philip's son Alexander. The first oration here is "To Demonicus," a moral treatise on good character addressed to a young man of that name. The other two orations are addressed to Nicocles, heir to the Cyprian throne, and outline the qualities of the ideal king.. 111 x 70 mm. (4 1/2 x 2 7/8"). 127, [1] pp. FINE CONTEMPORARY ITALIAN BROWN MOROCCO, ORNATELY GILT, covers framed by plain rules and cresting roll, central panel with multiple leafy spirals and small tools surrounding a center oval containing THE "SEDE VACANTE" ARMS OF THE HOLY SEE comprising crossed keys beneath an umbraculum (i.e., a papal umbrella), this symbol flanked here by the letters "S" and "R," raised bands, spine panels with repeating gilt palmette tools, two leather ties, new but sympathetic endpapers, all edges gilt (recased, preserving most of original backstrip). Front free endpaper with ex libris of Podestà. Upper corners a bit bumped, joints faintly rubbed, boards tending to splay just a little, title page slightly soiled (and with neat repairs), occasional minor foxing or small stains, but a very pleasing copy, generally clean and fresh with comfortable margins and a binding bright with gilt.

      apud Gerhard Grevenbruch, 1617. Meshovius (1591-1667) was an orthodox Catholic theologian and professor at the University of Cologne. His history of the Anabaptists covers the period to 1536 and is heavily based on the contemporary anti-Anabaptist writings of Bullinger, Cochläus, Oecolampadius, Luther, Zwingli, and Melanchthon, but also on works of his own contemporaries like Ubbo Emmius. The work is printed in a small roman type, dense on the page within a ruled border, with side- and shouldernotes. There are occasional woodcut historiated initials and head- and tailpieces.

        La Magdeleine.

      Tournai: Charles Martin, 1617. 8vo (150 x 98 mm). Engraved title, 746, [5] pp., [1] blank leaf. 2 engraved plates. Shoulder notes. Woodcut and typographic head- and tail-piece ornaments. Rust-stain in quire D, small stain or adhesion on fol. Tt3v affecting a couple of words, soiling to a page or two, else very good. 18th-century French calf, sides with single blind rule border, spine gold-tooled with red morocco gilt lettering-piece, edges red-stained (a few ink stains to covers, minor wear). Provenance: Paris, Capuchins(?), early inscription at head of engraved title (cropped); Albin Ser[ai?]n - long signed note on front flyleaf, signature partially deleted.*** Only edition of a stupefyingly long poem on Mary Magdalene by an otherwise unknown Capucin friar and poetaster. The history of the work is provided in a preface to the reader by Marie de Longueval, a noblewoman and friend of the scribbling friar, who was probably her confessor. Mme. de Longueval had requested of Father Rémi a few verses on la Madeleine for her own diversion, and after a couple of initial sonnets in the light vein that she expected, the sonnets kept coming, and coming, and an epic work took shape, eventually reaching 20 books, of non-stop alexandrines. At Mme. de Longueval's request Rémi gave her his manuscripts. Originally written only for her, and for a small circle of friends, the work was too great, in her view, to keep from the public, and she feared that the manuscript could be lost or damaged, sitting in her cabinet "among her rings," so she persuaded the friar to let her publish it. The same circle of friends, no doubt, contributed laudatory verses, praising the monster as a masterpiece. Though inspired stylistically by Ronsard and the poets of the Pléiade, Rémi de Beauvais lacked their genius. A German scholar, Paul Dittmer, who analyzed this obscure work (the subject of his doctoral thesis) in an even more obscure publication, describes Rémi's endless, obsessive detours into dusty by-ways of erudition, his helpless use of onomatopoeias to fill out his lines, and his waves of empty words, which finally suffocate his readers and turn his sincere attempts at reverence into silly parodies. Not surprisingly, in spite of the colorful promise of its subject, the medieval Magdalene legend being filled with lonely sea-voyages, mass conversions, years in a cave in the south of France, and flying angels, Remi's oeuvre was soon forgotten. Luckily, it is illustrated. Most fetching is the engraving, signed by Martin Baes or Bass (cf. Thieme-Becker 2:348), of the Cappadocia-like mountains of the Sainte-Baume with the Saint's grotto, her soul being carried aloft by a pair of angels. The title appears also to be by Baes. The other plate, showing the penitent Magdalene, is unsigned. There appear to be different states of the edition: the Harvard copy has an errata leaf at the end, apparently not present in most copies, and the number of engravings seem to vary, with some copies having only one plate (Harvard) plus the title or no plates (Huntington), others with 3 plates (Mazarine, which also has a copy with 9 plates, described as by Jacques Grandhomme). Gay-Lemonnyer II:960. Cf.

        Kaart van Zeeland - Petrus Kaerius, 1617.

      ZEELANDKopergravure uitgegeven door Petrus Kaerius (Pieter van den Keere) in 1617. Verso Latijnse tekst. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 35 x 47cm.De koperen plaat waar deze kaart van gedrukt is, was eerder door een anonieme graveur vervaardigd, maar kwam in handen van Petrus Kaerius. Daar waar de kostuumfiguren staan stond eerst een cartouche met tekst, maar om de kaart in overeenstemming te krijgen met de andere kaarten van zijn atlas, paste Kaerius de plaat aan. Nu zien we rechtsonder een gezicht op Middelburg met twee Zeeuwen ?Seelandi?, gekleed in de mode van die tijd. Links van deze cartouche een schaalstok omgeven door een rolwerkcartouche, waarboven het uitgeversimpressum ?Petrus keerius execud.? Linksboven een prachtig gegraveerde 32-delige kompasroos omgeven door schepen en zeemonster.De kaart werd opgenomen in Kaerius? atlas ?Germania Inferior?. In totaal beleefde deze atlas slechts drie edities: twee edities in het Latijn in 1617 en een in het Frans in 1622. Na de dood van zijn vrouw in 1623, kwam Kaerius in financi?le moeilijkheden en was hij verplicht zijn koperplaten te verkopen. De nieuwe eigenaar was Claes Jansz. Visscher, die de kaart voorzien zijn eigen naam opnieuw in de handel bracht. Met telkens kleine veranderingen werd deze kaart van Zeeland tot 1634 nog vijf maal uitgegeven.Prijs: ?1.650,-.

        Leo Belgicus - Pieter van den Keere, 1617.

      DE NEDERLANDSCHE LEEUW - SYMBOOL VAN DE LAGE LANDENKopergravure uitgegeven in 1617 door Petrus Kaerius (Pieter van den Keere). Verschenen in de atlas Germania Inferior, uitgegeven temidden van de 80-jarige oorlog. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 37 x 45,5 cm.De Nederlandse leeuw is een begrip. Het dier staat symbool voor de kracht en moed van het land. De leeuw speelt een belangrijke rol bij het voetbal in onze tegenwoordige tijd, maar de verbeelding van Nederland als leeuw werd ge?ntroduceerd in moeilijke tijden, aan het eind van de 16e eeuw. Vanaf het midden van de Tachtigjarige Oorlog stonden de Nederlanden model voor een reeks leeuwekaarten die op de markt kwamen.De leeuwekaart fungeerde niet alleen als nuttige landkaart, maar werd als statement vaak aan de wand gehangen. Een uiting van actief beleefd burgerschap, van trots, van zelfbewustzijn en diende in een handelskantoor of overheidsgebouw vaak als spectaculair visitekaartje.Met in het cartouche: ?Een kunstige en aardrijkskundige kaart in de gedaante van een leeuw die de 17 provinci?n van de Nederlanden voorstelt, waaraan de wapens van de afzonderlijke provincies zijn toegevoegd tezamen met de gebruikelijke grens van de provincies en hun stadhouders voor zover ze in het jaar 1559 door hun hoogste magistraat waren verdeeld en opgesteld.??Gallia Belgica was in de Romeinse tijd het noordelijke deel van Galli? tussen de Seine en de Rijn. Belgica werd als Latijnse naam later ook synoniem voor de 17 Provinci?n en de Lage Landen.Prijs: ? 14.500,- (incl. lijst).
