        Two Extremely Early New York City Documents, Signed In 1640 At Fort Amsterdam At The Tip Of Manhattan Island. Both Concern The West India Company, The Corporation That Founded What Became New York City

      NEW AMSTERDAM. New Amsterdam, the forerunner of New York City, was founded in 1624 largely by the Dutch, though it was ethnically diverse (Peter Minuit was German). In May 1624, the ship Nieu Nederlandt, chartered by the West India Company, arrived near Manhattan Island. The vessel had thirty families. A few families were left near New Haven, other people settled near the mouth of the Delaware River, some were left on Governor's Island, and the remaining families sailed up the Hudson River to form Fort Orange (now Albany). Later in 1624 and 1625, six additional ships left Holland with colonists, livestock and supplies. FORT AMSTERDAM. The fort was a stockade built by the Dutch on the southern tip of Manhattan around 1625. It was likely built by slaves and it was to protect the Hudson River from British and French infiltrations. It was torn down in 1790 after the American Revolution. THE WEST INDIA COMPANY (WIC). In 1621, the West India Company was granted a charter for a trade monopoly in the Caribbean, and it operated between West Africa (where it engaged in the slave trade) and the Americas. The company became very important in the Dutch settlement of the Americas. The company established many trade posts and colonies in the 1620s and 1630s. In 1629, the company began selling patroonships in New Netherlands. CORNELIUS VAN TIENHOVEN (1601-1656). Van Tienhoven was the secretary of New Netherlands from 1638 until shortly before his death, and was a very influential man. He served under both Kielt and Peter Stuyvesant. When he caused trouble in New Netherlands, the Dutch West Indies Company ordered him back to Holland. His hat and cane were found in the Hudson River, but no body was recovered; it is unknown if he was murdered or committed suicide. HARMEN MEYNDERTSZ VAN DEN BOGAERT (1612-1647). Bogaert arrived in Manhattan in 1630, and was a respected surgeon, the commissary of stores for Fort Orange, and an explorer of the Iroquois hinterlands. He kept a valuable journal describing his travels through upstate New York. In 1634, Bogaert was named the ambassador to the Mohawks, and he attempted to restore the fur trade. In 1647, he, while in Albany, was caught with a young male slave, which was a capital offense. He fled to the Mohawks, and was cornered by the Dutch. He set fire to the Mohawk's longhouse full of supplies and was caught. He escaped jail, but fell through an icy river and drowned. WIJBRANT PIETERSZ / WYBRANDT PIETERSEN (1600-1655). In 1638, Pietersz was appointed to supervise the quality of tobacco being harvested in New Amsterdam. CAREL LOOTEN. Looten was an Amsterdam financier. GOVERNOR DR. WILLEM KIEFT (1597-1647). Willem Kieft was the fifth director of New Netherland. He took up the position in 1638 and held it until 1647. DS. 2pg. 9 ¾" x 8 ½". March 22, 1640. Fort Amsterdam. Two extremely early New York documents autographed by four of the first Dutch settlers of New Netherlands. The documents, which are back to back on the same sheet of paper, are signed by "Hamanus A. Booghardii", "Wybrant Pietersen", "Ulrich Lupoltt" (two times) and "Cornelis van Tienhoven" (two times). The first document is a Power of Attorney, issued in the court of Cornelius van Tienhoven. It acknowledges that Harman Mijndertsz van Bogaert (aka Herman van Bogart) appointed Carel Looten to travel to Amsterdam to collect money owed to Bogaert from the West India Company. Looten could withhold his expenses. The document is written in Dutch, and translates as: "Before me, Cornelis van Tienhoven, secretary of New Netherland, in the presence of the undersigned witnesses, appeared Harman Myndertsen van de Bogaert, surgeon, who appoints and empowers, as he does hereby, Mr. Carel Looten, 337 merchant residing in the city of Amsterdam, to collect in his, the principal's, name from the honorable directors of the West India Company, chamber of Amsterdam, all such wages and board money as the principal has earned from the 21st of March 1630, when he sailed from the Texel on the ship De Eendracht, Jan Brouwer, skipper, arriving on the 24th of May following here in New Netherland, to the first of February Ao . 1633, as appears by the Book of Monthly Wages, which was sent over and which shows a debit account only, without any credit for wages or board money; the principal holding valid whatever shall be transacted herein by the above named Carel Looten, who is empowered to give receipt and to act further as necessity may require. Done this 22nd of March 1640, in Fort Amsterdam in New Netherland. Hamanus A. Booghardii Wybrant Pietersen Ulrich Lupoltt Acknowledged before me, Cornelis van Tienhoven, secretary". The other side is a certification of correctness and authority granted on behalf of Governor Dr. Willem Kieft, and is signed by Lupoltt and Tienhoven. It reads "I, the undersigned, Ulrich Lupoldt, commissary of merchandise for the West India Company in New Netherland, hereby acknowledge that for the account of the aforesaid Company I have received to my full satisfaction from Wybrant Pietersen, late commissary, the sum of twelve thousand, nine hundred and forty-five guilders, three stivers, six farthings, being the [value of the] balance of merchandise delivered to me by said Wybrandt Pietersen, of which I promise to render a full and true account to the Hon. Director Willem Kieft, or the Company's agent, except that the Company's account is to be reduced by so much as the weights and measures may be found to be less than the entries call for. Done this 27th of March Ao . 1640, in Fort Amsterdam in New Netherland. Ulrich Lupoltt Acknowledged before me, Cornelis van Tienhoven, secretary". Pre-1670 American letters are exceptionally rare. Signed documents, from the future American colonies (such as New Netherlands and New Sweden), of such an early date are virtually unknown. The American Book Prices Current shows one entry for "Fort Amsterdam", and it was sold at Sotheby's in 1977. Likewise, ABPC shows a few entries for "New Amsterdam", and the earliest of those documents was 1654. These documents were signed just fifteen years after New Amsterdam was established. The ink is dark, and there are a few folds and some light staining. A true American rarity.

        Purchas his Pilgrimes in five bookes [with:] Purchas his Pilgrimage.

      London: Stansby for Fetherstone, 1624-26 FIRST EDITION of this celebrated collection of travels accounts in English, "one of the fullest and most important collections of early voyages and travels in the English language" (Church). This is the rare first issue of volume I with the engraved title page dated 1624 (usually it is dated 1625) and with the offending passages concerning the Dutch (easily recognized by the presence of the p. 704 headline 'Hollanders lying devices, to disgrace the English," which was then changed to 'Amboyna taken by the Dutch. Ingratitude. Boasting'). This extraordinary undertaking, which extended Hakluyt's Principal Navigations (London, 1598), contains accounts of more than 1200 voyages of discovery and exploration. Many of these accounts were previously unpublished in any language; scores of others are here published for the first time in English. The set includes many of the accounts of the courageous men who had recently explored and begun to settle the New World. Among the hundreds of voyages related are those of Columbus, Da Gama, Cortés, Pizarro, Magellan, and Cabot. English explorations including those of Drake and Hawkins, the Jesuit explorations of China and Japan, the Portuguese voyages to the East Indies, and the explorations of the East India Company. The exploration of the New World is one of the focal points of this set, the greatest English work on exploration of the seventeenth century. Part of volume three and all of volume four are devoted to voyages to America. A CLASSIC OF EXPLORATION LITERATURE. The Age of Exploration contains some of the most exciting and dramatic tales of human achievement and adventure. The compilations of Ramusio and Hakluyt in the sixteenth century, and Purchas in the seventeenth century, form the foundation of a collection of great exploration books. LANDMARK MAPS. "The six original maps which Purchas uses are all of prime importance" (Wallis). The Pilgrimes contains several important maps of America including: John Smith's Map of Virginia, which Smith made available to his friend Samuel Purchas. This is "one of the most important printed maps of America ever produced and certainly one of the greatest influence. ... [It] inspired much interest in the fledgling Virginia colony, influencing considerably its eventual success" (Burden). This is the first printed map of the whole extent of the Chesapeake Bay based upon personal experience. The present example is in state 8, one of three states associated with the Purchas publication. Smith's map is "the most important map to appear in print during the period of early settlement and the one map of Virginia that has had the greatest influence upon map making for the longest period of time" (Coolie Verner, "The First Maps of Virginia, 1590-1673"). The Henry Briggs map of North America, the first in English to show California as an island. One of the most important English maps of North America, this is the first map to name Hudson's Bay and the Hudson River. William Alexander's map of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts to Newfoundland. This is the first map to record many place names and is a "map of great importance" (Burden). Roe's map of Northern India, the earliest English map of Mogul territories, was the standard map of the reion for nearly a century. Saris's map of China correctly shows Korea as a peninsula and may be the earliest map of China from Chinese sources to have be published in Europe, according to Skelton.

        Pharmacia Antverpiensis Galeno-chymica.Antwerp, Joris Willemsens I, 1660 [engraved title-page 1661]. With engraved title-page by Petrus van Caukercken after Abraham van Diepenbeeck With: [ JOCQUET, Joannes, and others]. [engraved title-page:] Pharmacopoeia Bruxellensis: ...Brussels, Jan Mommaert II, 1641. With engraved title-page by Cornelius Galle the elder after Anthonis Sallaert. 2 editions in 1 volume. 4to. Brown calf (ca. 1700?).

      Daems & Vandewiele, Noord- en Zuidned. stedelijke pharmacopeeën, pp. 62-63 (5 copies) & 70-71 (7 copies); STCV 12879911 (5 copies incl. 1 defective) & 12879890 (4 copies, incl. 1 lacking title-page). First (and in the case of Antwerp only) editions, in Latin, of the first and only official pharmacopoeias for Brussels and Antwerp, containing hundreds of medicinal recipes and throwing a great deal of light on 17th-century medical practice in the Low Countries. The Antwerp work's separate part with the title "Selectiora chymica" shows the rising importance of chemistry in the production of medicines. In 1624 the magistrates of Antwerp set up a Collegium Medicum, which did declare that medicines were to be prepared following Cordus until further notice. Brussels had begun to discuss plans to establish a Collegium Medicum already ca. 1605, but failed to do so. A 1636 plague gave city magistrates the impetus to compile a pharmacopoeia, however, and they commissioned four leading city physicians to compile the present Brussels pharmacopoeia, which appeared in 1641. In 1659 the Antwerp Collegium Medicum decided to produce their own official pharmacopoeia.With a 5-line presentation inscription on the flyleaf from the principal compiler of the Antwerp pharmacopoeia, Michiel Boudewijns to St Bernard's Abbey in Hemiksem, south of Antwerp, undated, but clearly between 1661 and Boudewijn's death in 1681. With an occasional correction in an early hand, an inscription at the end of the Brussels work by Godefridus Bouvaert (1685-1770), and the bookplate of Oscar van Schoor (1873-1936) on pastedown. Second work browned with occasional small marginal tears or spots, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is rubbed, with some mostly superficial cracks in the spine and hinges, but remains structurally sound. Two important pharmacopoeias with a remarkable provenance.

Oswald Croll [c. 1560 - 1609] was a professor of medicine and alchemy at the University of Marburg in Hesse, Germany. A strong proponent of alchemy and of using chemistry in medicine, he attempted to influence thinkers of his day towards viewing chemistry and alchemy as two separate fields. He published one volume in 1609, the year of his death, containing two books "Basilica Chymica" (La Royalle Chymie) and "De signatura rerum" (Traicte des Signatures) plus a long preface in which he expounds the ideas of Paracelsus to whom he was devoted. The Royalle Chymie is a comprehensive summary of his researches, methods of preparation, and studies into chemical medicine or iatrochemistry. He pushes for the understanding and recognition of chemical compounds and the medicinal value of herbs and other processes first advanced by Paracelsus. It also discussed matters such as compound remedies, chemical organisation and acted as an introduction to chemistry in later years. The Traicte des Signatures covered the relation of alchemy and chemistry to other fields of science, especially botany, suggesting the use of the doctrine of signatures to determine the medical property of plants.

        Sin título [New Englande, New Scotlande, Newfoundlande]

      1624 - 25 x 34 cm. Excepcional mapa de Nueva Inglaterra, Nueva Escocia y Terranova, elaborado por Sir William Alexander, incluído en la obra An Encouragement to Colonies, publicada en Londres en 1624, con el propósito de promover los asentamientos en esta región recientemente colonizada del noroeste de Norteamérica. A pesar de ser comúnmente subestimado, este importante mapa se destaca por haber sido el primero en mostrar varios aspectos: la primera aparición del término “Cape Cod” en un mapa; la cartografía más temprana de la Isla del Príncipe Eduardo; la primera representación de la colonia francesa de Kebec en un mapa inglés; y el primer uso del término “New Scotlande” en un mapa. En noviembre de 1620, el rey Jaime I creó el Concejo de Nueva Inglaterra y otorgó el territorio que aparece en el mapa a los 40 oficiales que conformaban la compañía. Más adelante, en 1621, concedió a su funcionario favorito, el escocés William Alexander, el privilegio sobre las tierras de Nueva Escocia (Nova Scotia) y parte de la península de Gaspe. Sin embargo, dicha cesión entró en conflicto con las posesiones que ya había entregado al Concejo. Como resultado de este inconveniente, el rey simplemente rescindió parte de la concesión hecha al Concejo reorganizándola y reduciéndola a 20 beneficiarios en 1623. En la misma época, Alexander también obtuvo el privilegio sobre la mayor parte del suroeste de Terranova de los propietarios originales, imaginando que así construiría un Imperio del Nuevo Mundo. Una vez definidos los establecimientos ingleses a través de las concesiones reales, el más interesado en estimular la migración a sus vastos dominios fue William Alexander. Tarea que promovió con la publicación del panfleto An Encouragement to Colonies. El mapa muestra el noreste de Norteamérica desde Nantucket y Martha’s Vineyard hasta Terranova y Labrador, y tierra adentro hacia el norte hasta los ríos St. Lawrence y Saguenay en el territorio de Nueva Francia. Expone la mejor descripción de la costa hecha hasta ese momento, pues puede uno identificar claramente Cape Cod, el puerto de Boston, Cape Anne, Casco Bay, Kennebec y Penobscot; así como unas bien definidas Nueva Escocia y Terranova. Adicionalmente introduce nueva toponimia para la región, incluyendo “New Scotlande” (Nova Scotia), las provincias de Caledonia y Alexandria, y el renombramiento de los ríos Clyde, Twede y Sulway. En “Newfoundlande” (Terranova) encontramos las posesiones de Sir George Calvert. Calvert invirtió una enorme fortuna en su colonia de Avalon, pero después de pasar un invierno ahí abandonó el esfuerzo, obtuvo una concesión de tierras más al sur y fundó la provincia de Maryland. En cuanto a “New Scotlande” (Nueva Escocia), que abarca los actuales Nueva Escocia y New Brunswick, Alexander la dividió en las provincias de Alexandria y Caledonia (se muestran en el mapa), que a su vez fueron subdivididas en docenas de baronías para ofrecerse a la venta. “New Englande” se muestra distribuida entre 20 lores y otros personajes importantes. Estos hombres eran los miembros del Concejo de Nueva Inglaterra entre los que la región fue repartida en 1623. Con la excepción de Ferdinando Gorges, quien estableció la primera colonia permanente en Maine, todas las tentativas coloniales de los ingleses que se muestran en este mapa fracasaron. A pesar de todas estas vicisitudes, el mapa continuó siendo relevante por varias razones; cartográficamente es más avanzado y preciso que mapas anteriores de la misma región, y es el primer mapa en nombrar los 20 concesionarios de tierras del Concejo de Nueva Inglaterra. En blanco y negro, reverso en blanco, y marca de la plancha visible. Muy buen estado de conservación. Mapa icónico de Nueva Inglaterra, Nueva Escocia y Terranova, y pieza esencial en cualquier colección seria de mapas tempranos de Norteamérica y Canadá.

        Purchas his Pilgrimes in five bookes [with:] Purchas his Pilgrimage.

      London: Stansby for Fetherstone, 1624-26 - FIRST EDITION of this celebrated collection of travels accounts in English, “one of the fullest and most important collections of early voyages and travels in the English language” (Church). This is the rare first issue of volume I with the engraved title page dated 1624 (usually it is dated 1625) and with the offending passages concerning the Dutch (easily recognized by the presence of the p. 704 headline ‘Hollanders lying devices, to disgrace the English,” which was then changed to ‘Amboyna taken by the Dutch. Ingratitude. Boasting’). This extraordinary undertaking, which extended Hakluyt’s Principal Navigations (London, 1598), contains accounts of more than 1200 voyages of discovery and exploration. Many of these accounts were previously unpublished in any language; scores of others are here published for the first time in English. The set includes many of the accounts of the courageous men who had recently explored and begun to settle the New World. Among the hundreds of voyages related are those of Columbus, Da Gama, Cortés, Pizarro, Magellan, and Cabot. English explorations including those of Drake and Hawkins, the Jesuit explorations of China and Japan, the Portuguese voyages to the East Indies, and the explorations of the East India Company. The exploration of the New World is one of the focal points of this set, the greatest English work on exploration of the seventeenth century. Part of volume three and all of volume four are devoted to voyages to America. A CLASSIC OF EXPLORATION LITERATURE. The Age of Exploration contains some of the most exciting and dramatic tales of human achievement and adventure. The compilations of Ramusio and Hakluyt in the sixteenth century, and Purchas in the seventeenth century, form the foundation of a collection of great exploration books. LANDMARK MAPS. “The six original maps which Purchas uses are all of prime importance” (Wallis). The Pilgrimes contains several important maps of America including: John Smith’s Map of Virginia, which Smith made available to his friend Samuel Purchas. This is “one of the most important printed maps of America ever produced and certainly one of the greatest influence. [It] inspired much interest in the fledgling Virginia colony, influencing considerably its eventual success” (Burden). This is the first printed map of the whole extent of the Chesapeake Bay based upon personal experience. The present example is in state 8, one of three states associated with the Purchas publication. Smith’s map is “the most important map to appear in print during the period of early settlement and the one map of Virginia that has had the greatest influence upon map making for the longest period of time” (Coolie Verner, “The First Maps of Virginia, 1590-1673”). The Henry Briggs map of North America, the first in English to show California as an island. One of the most important English maps of North America, this is the first map to name Hudson’s Bay and the Hudson River. William Alexander’s map of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts to Newfoundland. This is the first map to record many place names and is a “map of great importance” (Burden). Roe’s map of Northern India, the earliest English map of Mogul territories, was the standard map of the reion for nearly a century. Saris’s map of China correctly shows Korea as a peninsula and may be the earliest map of China from Chinese sources to have be published in Europe, according to Skelton.

        Tractacus quatuor. Quorum I. De formato foetu. II. De locutione & ejus instrumentis. III. De loquela brutorum. IV. De venarum ostiolis, loquitur.

      Francfort, Zetter, 1624. ____ Première édition collective. Elle est illustrée par un titre gravé et 43 belles planches d'anatomie gravées sur cuivre. Girolamo Fabrizi d'Acquapendente (1533-1619) a été l'éleve de Gabriel Fallope et l'a remplacé à la chaire de chirurgie de l'université de Padoue. Il est considéré comme le premier grand maître de l'anatomie physiologique et de l'embryologie comparées. On lui doit la première description des valvules veineuses. Il a été le professeur de William Harvey qui a utilisé par la suite les travaux de Fabrici pour sa découverte de la circulatio sanguine. On retrouve dans le "De motu cordis" une panche similaire à celle que l'on trouve dans l'oeuvre de Fabrici. Provenances : - Ex-libris manuscrit "ex museo Francisci Delort 1741". - Ex-libris manuscrit "Dr. Grateloup, Aquensis, Burdigala, 11 octobre 1838". Jean-Pierre Grateloup, né en 1782 à Dax et mort en 1861 à Bordeaux était médecin et malacologiste. Papier un peu bruni, dos largement restauré. *-------* First collected edition. Girolamo Fabrici ab Aquapendente (1537-1619), one of the great Paduan anatomists, pupil of Fallopius and teacher of Harvey, made important observations on the valves of the veins. "He failed to recognize their true function, considering this to be merely a delaying of the blood flow. However, his work influenced Harvey, who reproduced the extended arm from the great double plate in his 'De Motu Cordis' twenty-five years later. The plates are magnificent, nothing on their scale having been seen since the days of Vesalius." (Lilly Library). In-folio. Collation : XII, 158 pp., (8), 43 planches h.-t. Veau brun, dos à nerfs.

        Der Adel Lothringens. Folge von 12 Radierungen in einem Album. Vollständig.

       1624. Alle in der Platte bezeichnet \"Callot in. et fe.\" und mit der gestochenen Nummer. Schöne, meist gegensatzreiche Drucke auf Bütten, teils mit angeschnittenem Wasserzeichen. Alle mit Rand bzw. schmalem Rand um die Einfassung. Je ca. 14,4 x 92 cm (Darstellungsgröße). Nach Lieure 549 - 560. Wohl Lieure Kopien 2. - Vorhanden sind in der Reihenfolge des Albums: Der Edelmann mit gefalteten Händen (L. 559), Grüßender Edelmann (L. 550), Die Dame mit der Maske (L. 560), Die Dame mit dem kleinen Hut (L. 549), Die Dame mit dem großen Umhang (L. 553), Der Edelmann mit der pelzbesetzten Jacke (L. 555), Die Dame mit dem Fächer (L. 557), Der Edelmann mit dem umgeschlagenen Mantel (L. 558), Die Dame mit dem Muff (L. 552), Die Dame mit dem großen Kragen (L. 556), Der Krieger mit dem großen Federhut (L. 551), Der Edelmann mit dem Degen (L. 554). - Nach dem Tod Cosimo II kehrt Callot spätestens 1621 nach Nancy zurück. Mit dem Eintritt in den Dienst des lothringischen Herzog Heinrich II. 1623 beginnt sein sozialer Aufstieg und er wird führend im lothringischen Kunstleben. \"Der Adel Lothringens\" ist ein Gegenbild zu den Bettlern. In kostbaren Kleidern und mit Anmut und Gelassenheit in ihrer Haltung steht jeweils eine bildfüllende Einzelfigur auf einem erhöhten Punkt. Den Hintergrund bilden in Aufsicht wiedergegebene, nur das untere Drittel ausfüllende, kleine aber detailreich gestaltete Landschaften und Veduten, möglicherweise die Gegend um Nancy zeigend. Die Folge zeigt nicht nur ein lebendiges und getreues Bild der Mode der vornehmen Damen und Herren zur Zeit Callots, sondern ist darüber hinaus von besonderem Interesse, weil sich darunter vermutlich Porträts aus Callots Familie befinden: seine Frau (L. 549), ein Selbstporträt (L.550), Callots älterer Bruder (L. 554) und seine jüngere Schwester (L. 556). - Meist von guter Erhaltung. Wenige Bll. im oberen Drittel mit Faltspur und wenigen Fleckchen, meist im Randbereich. Jeweils lose auf Unterlageblatt (18,5 x 12,5 cm) montiert, diese mit Fadenheftung am oberen Rand und festem Karton außen. Kleinere Läsuren. Adel Lothringens, Lieure 549-560, Album

        IJsgezicht - Hendrick Avercamp.

      Wintergezicht te ?Slooten, Ao 1624?. Ets vervaardigd medio 18de-eeuw door Simon Fokke (werkzaam 1722-1784) naar ontwerp van Hendrick Avercamp. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 12 x 15,5 cm.In Nederland heerst bij vriesweer al eeuwen lang ijskoorts. Jong en oud, arm en rijk houden bij vallende temperaturen grachten, rivieren en meren nauwlettend in de gaten. Deze verbondenheid met het ijs is door niemand mooier verbeeld dan door Hendrick Avercamp (1585-1634). Hij was het die aan het begin van de 17de-eeuw het ?ijsgezicht? tot zelfstandig genre maakte. Als eerste kunstenaar specialiseerde hij zich in het schilderen van winterlandschappen met ijsvermaak. In zijn schouwspelen zijn telkens nieuwe details te ontdekken die veelal te maken hebben met vertier op het ijs.Hier zien we een visser voor een rieten schutting, hij heeft net een gat gehakt om daar zijn net in te laten zakken, een vuurkorf biedt warmte. Een eendenjager met zijn hond komt een praatje maken. Verderop - kluchtig detail - een man die met z?n blote billen boven een gat in het ijs hangt. Op de achtergrond figuren die zich per slee voortbewegen.In Avercamps taferelen schuilt een tijdloosheid die ook nu nog herkenbaar is. Het is daarom dat Avercamps winterlandschappen tegenwoordig tot de belangrijkste, typisch ?Hollandse? voorstellingen uit de 17de-eeuw worden gerekend.Prijs: ?825,-.
