         Novus Atlas, das ist / Welt- beschreibung/ mit schönen neuen ausführlichen land-Taffeln in Kupfer gestochen und an den tag gegeben

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1620 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 41 x 25; - description: Titlepage from the Atlas of J. Blaeu; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years.

         Tabula Europae Prima

      Artist: Ruscelli Girolamo ca ; date: ca1620 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Outer margin, tears perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 13 x 17; - description: Map depicts Great Britain in trapezoid form.; - vita of the artist: Girolamo Ruscelli (1518-1566) was an Italian polymath, humanist, editor, and cartographer active in Venice during the early 16th century. Ruscelli is best known for his important revision of Ptolemy's Geographia, which was published post humously in 1574. It is generally assumed that Alexius Pedemontanus was a pseudonym of Girolamo Ruscelli. In a later work, Ruscelli reported that the Secreti contained the experimental results of an ?Academy of Secrets? that he and a group of humanists and noblemen founded in Naples in the 1540s. Ruscelli?s academy is the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. The academy was later imitated by Giambattista Della Porta, who founded an ?Accademia dei Secreti? in Naples in the 1560s.

         Fessae et Marocchi Regna.

      Artist: Hondius Hendrik ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1620 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 36 x 48,5; - description: Map shows Morocco with the island Madeira, the Canary islands, on inset maps Penon de Velez and a decorative cartouche.; - vita of the artist: "Jodocus Hondius (1563 ?1612) was a Dutch engraver, and cartographer. He is best known for his early maps of the New World and Europe, for re-establishing the reputation of the work of Gerard Mercator, and for his portraits of Francis Drake. He helped establish Amsterdam as the center of cartography in Europe in the 17th century. He was born in Wakken and grew up in Ghent. In his early years he established himself as an engraver, instrument maker and globe maker. In 1584 he moved to London to escape religious difficulties in Flanders.While in England, Hondius was instrumental in publicizing the work of Francis Drake, who had made a circumnavigation of the world in the late 1570s. In particular, in 1589 Hondius produced a now famous map of the bay of New Albion, where Drake briefly established a settlement on the west coast of North America. Hondius' map was based on journal and eyewitness accounts of the trip and has long fueled speculation about the precise location of Drake's landing, which has not yet been firmly established by historians. Hondius is also thought to be the artist of several well-known portraits of Drake that are now in the National Portrait Gallery in London.In 1593 he moved to Amsterdam, where he remained until the end of his life. In co-operation with the Amsterdam publisher Cornelis Claesz. in 1604 he purchased the plates of Gerard Mercator's Atlas from Mercator's grandson. Mercator's work had languished in comparison to the rival Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius. Hondius republished Mercator's work with 36 additional maps, including several which he himself had produced. Despite the addition of his own contributions, Hondius gave Mercator full credit as the author of the work, listing himself as the publisher. Hondius' new edition of Mercator's work was a great success, selling out after a year. Hondius later published a second edition, as well as a pocket version Atlas Minor. The maps have since become known as the "Mercator/Hondius series".In the French edition of the Atlas Minor we find one of the first instances of a thematic map using map symbols. This is a map entitled Designatio orbis christiani (1607) showing the dispersion of major religions.[1]Between 1605 and 1610 he was employed by John Speed to engrave the plates for Speed's The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine.Hondius died, aged 48, in Amsterdam. After his death, his publishing work in Amsterdam was continued by his widow, two sons, Jodocus II and Henricus, and son-in-law Johannes Janssonius, whose name appears on the Atlas as co-publisher after 1633.[2] Eventually, starting with the first 1606 edition in Latin, about 50 editions of the Atlas were released in the main European languages. In the Islamic world, the atlas was partially translated by the Turkish scholar Katip Çelebi. The series is sometimes called the "Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius" series because of Janssonius's later contributions." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Around 1570, Theodorus de Bry, a Protestant, fled religious persecution south to Strasbourg, along the west bank of the Rhine. In 1577, he moved to Antwerp in the Duchy of Brabant, which was part of the Spanish Netherlands or Southern Netherlands and Low Countries of that time (16th Century), where he further developed and used his skills as a copper engraver. Between 1585 and 1588 he lived in London, where he met the geographer Richard Hakluyt and began to collect stories and illustrations of various European explorations, most notably from Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues.Depiction of Spanish atrocities in the New World, as recounted by Bartolome de las Casas in Narratio Regionum indicarum per Hispanos Quosdam devastatarum verissima.In 1588, Theodorus and his family moved permanently to Frankfurt-am-Main, where he became citizen and began to plan his first publications. The most famous one is known as Les Grands Voyages, i.e., The Great Travels, or The Discovery of America. He also published the largely identical India Orientalis-series, as well as many other illustrated works on a wide range of subjects. His books were published in Latin, and were also translated into German, English and French to reach a wider reading public.

         L'Histoire universelle du sieur d'Aubigné.

      Maillé [Saint-Jean-d'Angély], Jean Moussat, 1616-1620, - 3 parties en deux forts vol. in-folio, 365-[31]-489-[15] et 549-[14] pp., veau fauve, dos à nerfs orné, encadrement de filets à froid sur les plats, tranches rouges (rel. du XVIIIe). Petite tache sur le premier plat du tome 1. Edition originale très rare, publiée aux frais de l'auteur, de ce monument de l'historiographie réformée du XVIe siècle : quoique daté de 1616 au titre, le volume I porte un achevé d'imprimer du 31 mars 1618. Naturellement moins complète que les suivantes (la deuxième parut dès 1626 sur les presses genevoises) qui furent abondamment complétées, cette première édition se recommande par la spontanéité du style et la vivacité du mouvement. Cette histoire est inachevée : un volume quatrième était en préparation, et certains manuscrits en contiennent des livres isolés. Tel quel, l'ouvrage est à la fois une "histoire universelle" dans le genre très ambitieux de l'époque (même si les événements rapportés sont surtout ceux de l'Europe occidentale), et, à partir de 1562, des annales où l'expérience personnelle et les préjugés calvinistes de l'auteur apportent quantité d'éclairages intéressants (notamment sur ses campagnes en Poitou). Malgré son engagement très fort du côté protestant, d'Aubigné a réussi à atteindre une certaine impartialité, exposant dans toute leur extension les thèses catholiques comme les huguenotes, et ne se laissant pas aller à la haine contre les Guise, Henri III ou Catherine de Médicis, comme il le fera dans ses écrits polémiques. Haag I, 178-80 (V). SHF, Hauser, 1480. Longue note manuscrite sur l'ouvrage placé avant la page de titre. Très bel exemplaire, réglé, dans une reliure du XVIIIe siècle. [Attributes: First Edition]

(Wierus)"Alexander Albertinus, a Franciscan of the Observance of the Roman Catholic Church, in 1620 from Mantua, addressed to the Bishop of Verona this Hammer of Demons; or Four Most Experimented widely used Exorcisms Collected from the Gospels; a different format than what is used in the Flagellum Daemonum of Girolamo Menghi. The text consists of alternating prayers with certain scriptural passages from the Gospels, litanies, and sections containing instructionary notes for the Priest performing the exorcism. There is also included in the text, an Italian translation of the fourth exorcism, giving somewhat of an overview of the actions being performed.

(William Hole, d. 1624, engraver. ) Dedicated to George [Abbot] Archbishop of Canterbury. - Sir John Hayward was an English historian born and educated at or near Felixstowe, Suffolk, and graduated at Cambridge. His earliest book production, "The First Part of the Life and Raigne of Henrie the IIII. , extending to the End of the First Yeare of his Raigne (1599) ", placed him in the bad graces of Queen Elizabeth, who was easily persuaded that he was painting a moral for herself in his account of Richard II. 's downfall, and therefore had the historian imprisoned. Having learned his lesson, Hayward kept the favor of James I. , dedicated books to him and his son, defended the divine right of kings, and advocated the union of England and Scotland. In this seventeenth century work on devotion and meditation, the First Part of "Sanctuarie of a Troubled Soule" was written while Hayward was imprisioned within the Tower. The frontispiece shows Hayward staring out from beneath a bleeding, Contrite Heart of Grief and Fear, supported by Faith, Love, and Hope, and above two vignettes indicating pictorially the need to 'Flye from Evel' and 'Doe Good'. - STC 13007. - Extremely Rare. 12mo [62], 342, [18], 413 pp. - Handsome volume securely bound with boards tooled in full calf and in quite good condition.

Goedeke III, 29, 28 VD17 14:084320E - Georg Greflinger (Pseud. Celadon), 1620 in Neunburg vorm Wald - 1677 in Hamburg, gilt als erster deutschsprachiger Zeitungsredakteur im heutigen Sinne, der für den Nordischen Mercurius, ein seinerzeit modernes Publikationskonzept entwickelte. Er besuchte das evangelische Gymnasium in Regensburg, liße sich 1646 in der Hansestadt als Schriftsteller nieder. Schon 1654 wurde er von seinem Freund Johann Rist zum poeta laureatus gekrönt und in den Elbschwanenorden aufgenommen. Als Dichternamen gebraucht er Seladon und Celadon. In Hamburg war Greflinger sowohl als Übersetzer wie auch als Gelegenheitsdichter ungemein produktiv. Literarhistorischen Ruf erlangte seine Übersetzung des Cid von Pierre Corneille (die erste in Deutschland). In den Jahren 1663/65 begann Greflinger mit der Herausgabe der Zeitung Norddeutscher Mercurius, die von seinen Söhnen bis 1730 fortgeführt wurde. Hier ordnete er die Nachrichten schon nach thematischen Rubriken, behandelte relevante Themen ausführlicher und baute sogar lokale Nachrichten mit ein. Er verwendete verschiedene feuilletonistische Elemente. Als erster Zeitungsroman erschien Die Entdeckung der Insel Pines, welcher zwar utopisch war, jedoch zu der Zeit von den Lesern als wahrer Bericht verstanden wurde. Greflinger zählt zu den frühesten deutschen Journalisten. Das heute übliche Ressort-System geht im Wesentlichen auf ihn zurück. (Siehe auch: ADB IX, 625)

         Memorial en favor dels Mercaders Forasters sobre la Ordenacio feta per la Ciutat de Barcelona al Primer de Juny 1620 y en Resposta del Memorial fet per un magnifich Advocat de la Ciutat. Ab lo qual se suplica al Excellentissim señor Duch de Alcala Loctinent en Cathalunya mane revocar dita Ordinacio.

      En Barcelona, en casa de Llorens Déu, 1620. - in-4. (1f.blanc). 54ff. Demi-vélin, titre imprimé au dos (reliure postérieure). Edition Originale de ce très rare mémoire économique en catalan qui s'opposait aux fortes mesures protectionnistes émanant du Consell de Cent, l'administration municipale de la ville de Barcelone. L'ordonnance incriminée prévoyait une taxe extraordinaire sur les marchandises importées ou exportées de Barcelone par des commerçants d'origine étrangère ("mercaders forasters", les "marchands du dehors"), au seul motif de leur nationalité. Francesc Soler était jurisconsulte et doyen de l'Université de Perpignan. Son réquisitoire réclamant la révocation de cette ordonnance, dans lequel il répond point par point aux raisons avancées pour justifier la taxe, constitue un florilège particulièrement précoce d'arguments libre-échangistes. Après avoir rappelé l'origine étrangère d'un grand nombre de familles catalanes parmi les plus notables, l'auteur invitait notamment à observer la prospérité de grandes capitales commerciales comme Livourne, Séville, Lisbonne, Marseille, Naples, ou Palerme, ou de pays comme la Perse, la Turquie ou la Chine, où le commerce étranger était encouragé. "Que Ciutat del mon hi ha que noy haja forasters? Ninguna, y en Cathalunya may ni han faltats, sino en les terres incognites, y no descubertas. Lo Turch, lo Persa, y lo Chino volen, aman, y abrassan los mercaders forasters". La polémique entre défenseurs et partisans de cette fameuse ordonnance donna lieu à plusieurs publications, toutes favorables au protectionnisme à l'exception de celle-ci. Tache brune dans la marge inférieure de plusieurs feuillets. Bon exemplaire de cet ouvrage très rare dont Worldcat ne répertorie qu'un seul exemplaire (Université de Barcelone) et qui est resté absent du Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico. Palau, 317706. Sur l'économie catalane de cette époque et la controverse sur l'ordonnance du 1er juin 1620, voir la thèse doctorale de l'actuel vice-président de la Généralité de Catalogne Oriol Junqueras: "Economia i pensament econòmic a la Catalunya de l'Alta Edat Moderna (1520-1630)" (1999).

         A defensative against the poyson of supposed prophecies

      John Charlewood, W.Jaggard, London 1620 - A LEARNED ATTACK ON JUDICIAL ASTROLOGY Folio in 4's. ff.(viii) 151 (i). Roman and italic letter. T-p slightly shaved at f-e, title within white interlaced strapwork border on a black crible background,(Mckerrow and Ferguson 249). Decorative headpieces, historiated and floreated initials throughout in two sizes. Slight water staining to first two gatherings. Inner ll. slightly spotted. An interesting and attractive copy in contemp. speckled calf, covers with blind ruled outer borders. Spine in seven compartments, remains of paper label. Upper joint cracked at head. Reputedly the most learned man of his time and a skilled architect and generous benefactor, Northampton (1540-1614), took an active part in political business at court, often out of favour; he was twice arrested for heresy and treasonable correspondence with the Scottish Queen. After his release he retired to St. Albans where he spent a year writing "A defensative.". This work is a learned attack on judicial astrology, dedicated to Walsingham and perhaps suggested by the astrological exploits of Richard Harvey (writer of: "An astrological discourse upon the the great and notable conjunction of two superior planets.1583"). Soon after its publication the book was accused of "seeming heresies and treason" and Howard was sent to the Fleet for several months. This edition printed six years after his death is described on the title page as newly revised and is divided into thirty six chapters. Northampton dispels the authority of dreams, oracles, revelations, invocations of spirits "or any other kind of pretended knowledge whatsoever - which have been causes of great disorder in the common wealth, especially among the simple and unlearned people". He has little time for astrology, the zodiac, planetary powers or fortune telling, one wonders what he would make of our modern day infatuation with all things new-age. Northampton was known as a wit and counted amongst his friends, Bacon, who recorded some of his remarks in his "Apophegms", and George Chapman who inscribed a sonnet to him which was printed before his translation of Homer in 1614.
