        Eigenh. Antwortentwurf mit U., dorsal auf Kanzleischreiben der nö. Landstände an den HKR.

      Wien, 7. XII. 1621.. S. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt (neben der Adresse auf der Rückseite des Gegenblatts). Papiergedecktes Siegel. Folio.. Antwort auf ein Schreiben der Verordneten der niederösterreichischen Landstände an den Hofkriegsrat mit einer Beschwerde über das Festhalten des Obersten Rudolf Gf. Colloredo an einer widerrechtlich begangenen Beschlagnahme in Wiener Neustadt trotz hofkriegsrätlichen Befehls zum Ersatz: "Auf deroselben unnß verwichenen Monats Novembris beschehene zuferttigung, sechtzig centen stahel, so herr obriste Colloredo freyherr, ainem in der Neustatt bezallen solte, betreffent, haben wir wolermelten herrn obristen die befriedigung angedeuter maßen per decretum auferlegt, wie aber gedachter herr obrister sich hievon entschuldiget, undt was er ferrers sich hierüber erclärt, das ist auß seinem unnß übergebenen Bericht A. mit mehreren zuersehen" (ohne die erwähnte Beilage). - Questenberg, "der bereits unter Kaiser Matthias hervorgetreten war, stieg nach dem Regierungsantritt Ferdinands II. endgültig zur bestimmenden Persönlichkeit im Hofkriegsrat auf" (NDB XXI, 43). In seiner Erwiderung an die Stände ließ er "denen n. ö. herren verordneten vom dem hohen hofkriegsrath [...] diese verordnung [...] thuen, daß ihrer k[ayserlichen] m[ajestät] allergnädigster bevelch" dahin laute, "ihme h. obr. von Coloredo" sei der Gegenwert des Stahls vom Gehalt "abzuziehen und dem clager zuezustellen", Oberst Colloredo dagegen sei zu bescheiden, "daß dieses kein contrabant sey", daß das fragliche Gut aber für den Fall, "das es ain contraband gewest wär, nit ihme sondern dem khayser zugehört haben würde, desßwegen billig ihme die erstattung auferlegt und dem clager zuerkant wurden". - Ein typisches Beispiel für die Mißstände im kaiserlichen Heer des frühen 17. Jahrhunderts, die bis in die kommandoführenden Ränge reichten. Rudolf Gf. Colloredo-Waldsee (1585-1657) hatte 1619 "die Bewilligung [erhalten], in Niederösterreich ein Regiment zu werben, mit dem er die Grenzen dieses Erblandes sicherte" (NDB III, 328). "Viele Oberste jener Zeit lassen sich den jetzigen Fabriksherren vergleichen. Wie diesen die Arbeiter, so dienten jenen die Kriegsknechte als Mittel mühelos sich zu bereichern [...] Wohl mußte jeder Oberst durch die Capitulation sich verbürgen, 'gute Ordnung zu halten, Niemand zu beschweren, Muthwill, Frevel und Unzucht zu bestrafen", aber zum Vollziehen des Beschworenen fehlte jetzt die Möglichkeit, sodann der gute Wille, welcher kaum zu erwarten war, wenn der Befehlshaber selbst in fremdem Eigenthum eine willkommene Beute erblickte. Oberst Rudolph Colloredo (im Dienste der n. ö. Stände) nahm unter dem Vorgeben von Contrebande dem Eisenhändler Joachim Peringer von Neustadt 60 Centner Stahl, für deren Ausführung nach Ungarn er ein Privilegium besaß, hinweg. Der Hofkriegsrath wies die Verordneten an (Schreiben vom 4. Mai 1623), dem Obersten hiefür 523 fl. am Sold abzuziehen" (Hurter, Geschichte Kaiser Ferdinands II., Bd. VIII, S. 321-323). - Die Unterschrift der Beschwerdeschrift (wahrscheinlich die des nö. Landmarschalls Seyfried Christoph von Breuner?) ausgeschnitten.

In line with Bodin, from Anjou like him and he accused of having plundered his ideas, the lawyer Choppin is a sovereignist thinker, he supported the strength of the state on the notion of sovereignty; this is one of the first thinker of the concept of state.

        Relacion del viaje que por orden de su Magd. y acuerdo del real Consejo de Indias. Hizieron los Capitanes Bartolome Garcia de Nodal, y Gonçalo de Nodal hermanos, naturales de Ponte Vedra, al descubrimiento del Estrecho nuebo de S. Vicente y reconosimjo. del de Magallanes

      Madrid: Fernando Correa, 1621. Small quarto, with the large folding map (350 x 420 mm.); engraved title with inset portraits of the Nodal brothers, their two ships and the Straits of Magellan, signed I. De Courbes; three woodcuts in the text; some minimal soiling in margins and a couple of marginal tears; a fine and genuine copy, with the correct first edition of the map, in contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered by hand, ties partially present. An exceptional rarity: complete with the map. An outstanding copy of one of the most elusive of all voyage books. This first edition, notoriously difficult to find and especially so with its correct map, was a famous rarity even in the 1860s when Sabin described it as 'one of the rarest books of its class'. The Hill catalogue calls it 'particularly with the map...one of the rarest books on voyages of the 17th century'. The map was very probably not generally issued; Thomas W. Streeter's collection had to make do with a facsimile, although his son Frank S. Streeter managed to secure a copy once in an Argentinian Jesuit library (sale 16 April 2007, lot 386).The Hill catalogue mentions that 'copies containing the map are so rare that it is believed to have been suppressed in accordance with official Spanish policy of secrecy'. In any event, the book has almost never appeared complete on the market in modern times. Most libraries and collectors have had to make do with the second edition, itself very scarce, which was published almost 150 years later in 1769.This landmark voyage of Pacific discovery to the Straits of Magellan cleared the way for future Spanish approaches to the Straits and beyond. The voyage came about as the Spanish reflex reaction to the Dutch discovery of the Le Maire Strait (called San Vicente by the Spanish); it had been discovered by Le Maire and Schouten during their 1616 voyage in search of the Southern Continent. The Dutch success alarmed the Spanish - but they were also interested in a safer means of passage into the South Sea; they therefore sent out two caravels under the command of the Nodal brothers, to report on the Le Maire and Schouten discoveries.'This was the first circumnavigation of Tierra del Fuego. The whole voyage, out and back, had taken only nine months and twelve days: 'a period which, in the present state of navigation, would be reckoned very short for the performance of such a voyage, and was then unprecedented' (Burney) - many a Dutch and English ship took longer just to reach Cabo Virgines. The ships had never once separated, and except for one man hanged at Rio for plotting mutiny, there was not a single death. Rapid as the voyage was, it was not scamped; the Nodals brought back careful and clear sailing instructions, and paid unusual attention to tidal observations. Their conduct of the voyage was indeed a model of decision and efficiency; but they fell victims to the general slackness which was creeping over Spanish naval affairs: the Spain of Philip III was not that of Philip II' (Spate II, p. 26).The supposed danger of the voyage was such that volunteers could not be found, and apart from a handful of Dutch pilots, the crew was staffed entirely by prisoners. The voyage must also be reckoned as an altogether heroic feat of navigation, second in daring only to the voyages of Magellan, Drake and Cook. The eminent eighteenth-century voyage historian La Borde remarks that the King of Spain was so pleased by the efficiency of the route that he immediately ordered an expedition to the Philippines, which was accomplished in record time.The map is signed by the Portuguese cartographer Pedro Texeira Albernas (1575-1640), although Markham asserts that it was actually drawn up by the Nodal brothers themselves. As well as being a legendary rarity, it is also of outstanding interest: as a major original contribution to geographical knowledge by an Iberian cartographer, it is virtually unparalleled in the closing years of the discovery period - almost all other maps of the period were more or less derivative and virtually never offered enough cartographic information to serve navigational purposes, as does the present map.

O exemplar que possuo d?este Tractado, bem acondicionado e novamente encadernado, custou?me 2:400 réis, e é este o preço por que hão corrido os poucos que apparecem no mercado.

Esta obra anda cotada em 30 francos no Catalogo de Shwabi n.º 1337: em Portugal tem corrido por preços mais modicos, que regulam quasi sempre entre 1:600 e 2:400. «Na Anacephalæoses resumiu o auctor as nossas chronicas, accrescentando e mudando o que lhe pareceu, não sei se mais certo, se mais glorioso e plausivel. O estylo é florido, e quasi poetico, e refere as acções que mereciam censura, dourando?as com clausulas elegantes e agradaveis.» (Marquez d?Alegrete.) Diz o academico Leitão Ferreira nas Noticias Chronologicas da Universidade de Coimbra pag. 283, que o primeiro auctor dos retratos dos reis, que traz o P. Vasconcellos nas Anacephal?oses, e que são de buril mais polido que os que haviam dado á luz Pedro de Mariz nos seus Dialogos e Fr. Bernardo de Brito nos Elogios (se parecidos, ou não, outrem o julgará) foi Manuel Sueiro, auctor dos Annaes de Flandres. Alguns chegaram a persuadir?se de que as chapas dos ditos retratos eram as proprias que depois serviram na obra Philippus Prudens de Caramuel. Examinei e confrontei uns e outros, e em resultado digo que me parece que a maior parte das ditas chapas são effectivamente as mesmas, porém que foram retocadas para servirem no Philippus. Ha porêm os retratos de D. Pedro e D. Manuel, que fazem nas cabeças considerabilissima differença, e accusam a existencia de chapas totalmente diversas. Tambem o retrato d

        OOST ENDE WEST-INDISCHE SPIEGHEL WAER IN BESCHREVEN WERDEN DE TWEELAETSTE NAVIGATIENGHEDAEN INDE JAEREN 1614, 1615, 1616, 617, ENDE 1618

      Zutphen: Andries Janssz van Aelst, 1621.. 192pp. plus two folding maps and twenty-three plates (five folding). Small oblong quarto. 19th century vellum. Very minor soiling and toning. Very good. A fundamentally important record of Dutch circumnavigation, military activity, and trade rivalry in the early 17th century, this narrative was first published in Leyden in 1619 and later published in French and the present Dutch, in 1621. It is appropriate that this volume contains the accounts of both Joris Van Spilbergen and Jacob Le Maire's voyages, since the two were intertwined. Van Spilbergen undertook his voyage on behalf of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Le Maire's father, Isaac, had had a falling out with the VOC in 1605. He outfitted his own vessel for a circumnavigation, captained by his son, Jacob, and by Willem Corneliszoon Schouten, in order to lessen the VOC's trade monopoly. The first part of this volume contains the account of Spilbergen's circumnavigation, while the later part treats the voyage of Le Maire. Of the two voyages, that of Le Maire and Schouten is the more significant. They discovered a new passage to the Pacific south of the Straits of Magellan, sailed around Tierra del Fuego, and named Cape Horn. Sailing to the west, they discovered the islands of the Taumoto Archipelago, the Tonga group, the Solomon Islands, and several islands along the northern coast of New Guinea. These discoveries contributed greatly to the European knowledge of the South Pacific. When Le Maire and Schouten's ship reached Jakarta in late 1616, they were seized by agents of the Dutch East India Company and sailed the rest of the way back to the Netherlands accompanied by Van Spilbergen's fleet. Le Maire died en route. The main contribution of Van Spilbergen's exploration was in the Philippines and the Ladrone Islands. He also performed important military work for the Dutch government, raiding Spanish shipping and settlements along the coast of South America. Many of the locations he visited and raided are depicted in the woodcuts. Van Spilbergen was apparently impressed with Le Maire and Schouten's achievement, and had the account of their explorations published together with his own voyage. The work went through several printings in many languages. The book contains a wealth of images of the islands and peoples of the South Pacific, including a map of Tierra del Fuego and the "Straits of Le Maire," the "Cocos" Islands (Tafahi), and the "Hoornsche" Islands of the Tonga group. It also includes the important map showing Le Maire and Schouten's route across the Pacific, and maps of the Philippines. The illustrations include views of the Straits of Magellan, Acapulco, Lima, and Concepcion. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 621/118. BORBA DE MORAES II:276. TIELE- MULLER 69. HILL 1619 (ref).

        Le Réveil de Chyndonax Prince des Vacies Druydes celtiques diionois, avec la saincteté, religion, & diversité des Ceremonies observees aux anciennes Sepultures.

      - Par I. G. D. M. D. Finely engraved coat-of-arms of Roger de Bellegarde on recto of second leaf, one engraved folding plate (lightly dampstained), & several woodcuts in the text. 10 p.l., 176, [14] pp., one leaf of errata. Small 4to, 18th-cent. polished speckled calf (minor dampstaining & browning), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt in compartments incorporating a gilt stamp of a giraffe. Dijon: C. Guyot, 1621. First edition of this uncommon book describing one of the most sensational archeological discoveries of the 16th century. In this work, Guénébauld (d. ca. 1630), a physician in Dijon who had studied medicine in Padua and Rome, describes his discovery in 1598 in his vineyard at Poussat of a coffin with a Greek inscription eulogizing Chyndonax, a priest of Mithras. He interpreted it to be an archdruid. Guénébauld’s discovery, near a Roman road, provoked a period of intense interest in druidism in Burgundy. Casaubon, Saumaise, and de Thou all were fascinated by this find. The coffin was later owned by Cardinal Richelieu. "This discovery was a very exciting affair that attracted considerable attention; it consisted of a cylindrical stone coffer, about a foot in height, that contained a glass cinerary urn. On the base of the coffer was a Greek inscription mentioning Mithras and also a name interpreted by Guenebauld as Chyndonax, who, because he was described as a chief priest, was assumed to have been necessarily an important druid. Guenebauld himself published this find some years later in a delightful little book [the present work], complete with illustrations, which seems to be one of the first treatises in the history of transalpine archaeology that dealt with the problems of a single excavation."–T.D.

        DE RE METALLICA. LIBRI XII. QUIBUS OFFICIA, INSTRUMENTA, MACHINAE, AC OMNIA DENIQUE AD METALLICAM SPECTANTIA.

      Ludovici Regis, Basil 1621 - Folio (8" x 12-1/2") bound in library buckram; irregularly paginated: [10], 502, [58] pages. Illustrated with 273 woodcuts, many full and half page, some signed with the monogram "RMD," and generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl.1525-1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring. Previously published in 1556 and 1561, this edition seems scarcer than either of the previous. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 79: "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times." Herbert Hoover, who first translated this book into English, described this title in his autobiography as "the first important attempt to assemble systematically in print the world-knowledge on mining, metallurgy, and industrial chemistry. It was the great textbook of those industries for two centuries and had dominated thought and practice all that time. In many mining regions and camps, including the Spanish South America, it was chained to the church altar and translated by the priest to the miners between religious services." The book combines a profound technical and financial knowledge of mining with an underlying interest in the health and daily routine of mine workers. The woodcut impressions are strong and dark. As customary with this title, there is browning throughout, occasionally heavy. Small piece of title page repaired with no loss of text or illustration; ink names of David Stuart dated 1771 and Joseph Robertson dated 1830 on title page. Library bookplate on front pastedown and small ink number on the title page illustration; no other library markings except for numbers on the spine. An important and richly illustrated title. Very Good in a serviceable binding [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
