        Profetie dell'Abbate Gioachino. Et di Anselmo Vescovo di Marsico. Con l'imagini in dissegno, intorno a Pontefici passati, e c'hanno a venire

      1625 - [2]-104-[1] pages In Padova, Pietro Paolo Tozzi, 1625, in-4, [2]-104-[1] pages, vélin ivoire postérieur, Signatures : [n.s.]2 ; A-N4. Gravure sur cuivre au titre et 34 grands bois dans le texte : le premier représente Joachim recevant la révélation, les 2 suivants les roues prophétiques, 30 servent d'emblème et d'explication aux prophéties et le dernier illustre l'oracle turc. Belle édition bilingue padouane des prédictions concernant la succession des papes, attribuées au célèbre moine Joachim de Flore pour les 15 premières, et à Anselme, évêque de Marsico, pour les 15 dernières. L'ouvrage ouvre sur la Vie de Joachim par le franciscain Gabriel Barrio ; suivent les prophéties en latin et en italien, la célèbre prophétie turque les notes de Pascal Regiselmo. Né vers 1135 en Calabre, Joachim fut abbé d'un monastère franciscain pendant 14 ans avant de fonder l'Ordre de Flore, d'inspiration cistercienne, et de se retirer pour la vie contemplative jusqu'à sa mort en 1202. Ses prophéties apocryphes lui viennent tant d'une étude approfondie de la Bible et de ses "verbes mystiques", que des moments d'illumination qui lui révélèrent des choses jusqu'alors cachées. Il envisage l'histoire du monde en trois âges : l'âge de la terre, qui correspond à l'âge de l'Ancien Testament, depuis la création jusqu'à la naissance du Christ ; l'âge de l'eau, celui du Nouveau Testament, qui de la naissance du Christ, s'étend jusqu'en 1260 et figure l'époque des clercs ; enfin, l'âge du feu, c'est-à-dire l'époque des moines et de l'intelligence spirituelle. Joachim prédisait ainsi de grands bouleversements dans les institutions religieuses : ses prophéties furent condamnées lors du concile de Latran en raison de leur dimension anti-pontificale et apocalyptique. Elles furent finalement mises en circulation après le pontificat de Boniface VIII ; la seconde série, attribuée à Anselme, lui fut ajointe par la suite. Annotations anciennes au titre et en marge d'une page. Liste manuscrite au milieu du XIXe siècle sur une garde blanche finale : elle contient la liste des papes depuis Grégoire XV (mort en 1623) jusqu'à Pie IX (1846). Feuillets légèrement salis, mouillure pâle en tête des premiers feuillets. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Questionum Medicarum Paradoxarum & Endoxarum

      Ludovici Regis, Basel 1625 - FIRST EDITION OF THIS ESSAY ON ANATOMY FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. [xvi] 277 [xi]. Roman and italic letter, printer device on t-p, historiated and floriated initials, ornamental tail pieces, age foxing. A very good copy in a beautiful contemp rigid vellum over board, flat spine gilt with four compartments, double gilt-tooled frames with corner fleurons and central oval ornamental piece, gilt edges, ms. author's name and date on spine, remains of silk green ties. First edition of this essay on anatomy, particularly blood circulation with a useful index at end. Felix Platter's work is a gathering of medical questions divided under five subjects headings: "Physiologicae", "Pathologicae", "Simeioticae", "Hygieinae", and "Therapeuticae". The first (and longest) section answers a wide variety of questions about the human body, from birth (including removal of the umbilical chord) to death (including why corpses sometimes take on a yellowish color) with many tips in between, even a short discussion of 'why the fingers are pale' and suggesting exposure to sunlight, but warning against sunburn. The final four sections deal more with sickness, symptoms, hygiene including diet, and nutrition as well as women's health, and finally a small collection of cures including the use of precious stones to draw illnesses from the blood. With such a wide variety of topics in a question-and-answer format, the book was probably intended for use as a household reference guide for the contemporary ailing humanist. Felix Platter ( 1536-1614) was the son of Thomas Platter, a well-know printer. He is known today for his medical activity and his work on human pathology, especially 'De corporis humani structura', which made him famous. He was a faithful disciple of Eustachi, Fallopio, and above all, of Vesalius, from whose De humani corporis fabrica much of his own writing was derived. From his books and especially from public autopsies, which he performed in Basel, he soon acquired a reputation as an important anatomist. As a practicing pediatrician he was ahead of his time, and his works were authoritative until the beginning of the eighteenth century.(C. Coulston Gillipie). The work is annotated based on the studies and experience of Felix's younger brother, Thomas Platter (1574-1628), anatomical and botanical professor at Basel where he practiced medicine. He also wrote a journal where he describes his travel through Western Europe (France, Spain, England and Netherlands), a sort of humanistic and initiatory journey with several hand-drawings and plans. Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie, a French historian, wrote an important work on the Platter's family.

        Northeast North America, ‘New Scotlande’].

      - The 2nd (of 2) states, from Samuel Purchas, Purchase his Pilgrimes (London: William Stansby, 1625). A fine example of William Alexander’s’ ‘New Scotlande’, the first broadly accurate English map of Northeast North America. This highly important map is the first broadly accurate English map to focus on both New England and Atlantic Canada. It was devised by the Scottish colonial proprietor William Alexander in order to promote migration and investment in his New World domains. The map is one of the most important original graphic artifacts pertaining to the early period of English colonization in the North America. The map embraces the all of the area of the continent roughly from the east of the present day location of Montreal and from eastern Massachusetts in the south, northward to Labrador. While far from scientific, Alexander’s map is amazingly accurate for the time, with all key features taking on a form familiar to the modern viewer. The St. Lawrence Valley (modern Quebec), the Gulf of St. Lawrence (labeled here as the ‘Golfe of Canada’) and the outlines of the Canadian Maritimes are generally taken from Samuel de Champlain’s groundbreaking Carte geographique de la Nouvelle France (1612), while the depiction of Newfoundland is improved, based on recent English sources, including John Mason. The depiction of New England is largely taken from English sources, such as John Smith, and is a dramatic improvement over Champlain’s coverage of the region. Important geographical features are clearly defined, including Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Boston Bay and the Charles River, Cape Ann, Casco Bay and the Kennebec and Penobscot Rivers. Further north, the map also correctly locates Placentia Bay and the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland and the approximate position of Prince Edward Island (although it is not named). The map also features the key settlements of New France, being ‘Kebek’ (Quebec City, founded by the French in 1608) and ‘Tadousac’, a French trading post founded in 1600 at the mouth of the Saguenay River. Most interestingly, the map features a wealth of new and historically significant nomenclature. It is the first printed map to label Nova Scotia (as ‘New Scotlande’) and Cape Cod. Alexander divided New Scotlande into two provinces, ‘Alexandria’ (modern Nova Scotia) and ‘Caledonia’ (modern New Brunswick), which were, in turn, divided into baronies for prospective investors. In ‘New Englande’, Alexander depicted the lands designated to the 20 named proprietors of the Council of New England, a colonization company formed in 1620 (the number of principals of which had been halved from 40 to 20, in 1623). The comparatively infertile territory which lay between ‘New Englande’ and ‘Caledonia’ (corresponding approximately to eastern Maine) is shown to be sprinkled with Scottish names (ex. ‘Forthe’, ‘Clyde’, ‘Twede’) in an effort to make the area seem more sympathetic to potential Scottish stakeholders. William Alexander (c.1567-1640), the 1st Earl of Stirling, was a longtime acolyte of the Stuarts, the ruling family of Scotland. In 1603, the Stuarts additionally assumed the crown of England and over the coming years Alexander and King James I’s other Scottish courtiers assumed great power and influence in London. In 1621, James granted Alexander charter title to all of the land between the St. Croix River and the Gulf of St. Lawrence (essentially all of the modern day Canadian Maritimes). When the Council of New England pointed out that Alexander’s award clashed with their grant (which included all of the Atlantic Seaboard from 40 to 48 degrees North), James duly annulled the Council’s title to the eastern part of its territories in favor of his old Scottish friend. Alexander included the first edition his map within his pamphlet, An Encouragement to Colonies (London: William Stansby, 1624), an articulate marketing tool in which he sought to promote his New World venture. His well written prose and groundbreaking map soon

        De La Recherche de la Verite. Ou L'On Traitte de la Nature de l'Esprit de l'homme, & de l'usage qu'il en doit faire pour eveiter l'erreur dans les Sciences. Seconde Edition revue & augmentee.

      Paris. Chex Andre Pralard. 1625.. 1625. Hardcover. Book 12mo. 17cm, in 2 volumes, xxx,461,[ix] & 56,496,[v]pp., in 6 books, in contemporary full calf, raised bands, gilt decorations in the panels, rubbed and worn but a very good sound set. (n14). - Malebranche, Nicolas, 1638-1715. His major work, begun in 1668, was De La Recherche de la Verite. It ran to several volumes and was revised constantly. Like Descartes, Malebranche rejected sensible qualities and held that things are to be judged solely by the ideas that represent them to us according to their intelligible essence. God was seen as the sole efficient casue and natural causes as only "occasional" causes - hence occaisionalism, as Malebranche's system is called. .

        Elzevier-Sammlung von Fritz W. Weddigen. The Weddigen Elzevier-Collection. Gleichzeitig die Bibliographie aller jemals erschienenen elzevierschen "Republiken" in allen bekannten Varianten, insgesamt 81 Titel in 78 Bänden, und zahlreiche weitere Drucke des Hauses Elzevier, darin enthalten eine kleine Teilsammlung "Grotiana", sowie die zugehörige Sekundärliteratur. Übrigens liegen die allermeisten Bände in meist gut erhaltenen zeitgenössischen Pergamenteinbänden und nicht, wie es auf dem Höhepunkt der Elzevieromanie üblich war, in nachgebundenen Pariser Meister- Maroquineinbänden vor, nicht unbedingt ein Nachteil - allerdings beim Sammeln, sicherlich nicht nur seinerzeit, ein großer Vorteil: die reich verzierten, meisterlichen Ledereinbände sind auch damals schon extrem rar und teuer gewesen und die Titel deswegen oft genug auch sehr beschnitten.

        HAKLUYTUS POSTUMUS OR PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES. CONTAYNING A HISTORY OF THE WORLD, IN SEA VOYAGES & LANDE-TRAUELLS, BY ENGLISHMEN & OTHERS...IN FIVE BOOKS

      London, 1625. Folio. Late 19th-century dark blue morocco, raised bands, a.e.g., by W. Pratt, handsome gilt device on front and rear covers. Careful repairs in upper margin of titlepage in fifth volume. Map of Virginia trimmed to margin on bottom and left, with loss of margin in gutter about a quarter-inch wide, repaired in expert facsimile, and laid down on linen. Engraved titlepage expertly remargined. Otherwise fresh and clean. A very good, tall, handsome set. A beautiful set of the second great collection of English voyages, expanding upon and greatly adding to the work of Hakluyt, whose manuscripts Purchas took over after Hakluyt's death. Comprised of the first issue of the first volume (which conforms to the pagination in Sabin 66683, with the offensive text concerning the Dutch in uncanceled state), and the fourth edition (as is usual and proper) of PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMAGE as the fifth volume (second issue, with the dedication to King Charles I). The first volume contains the first state of pages 703- 706, with the offending references to the Dutch (e.g. with the headline on page 704 reading "Hollanders lying deuices, to disgrace the English" instead of "Amboyna taken by the Dutch. Ingratitude. Boasting," as in the second issue). See Sabin for a detailed description of other issue points. Purchas collects over 1,200 separate narratives of explorations in every part of the world. Many of the accounts relate to the New World, especially Virginia, and one of the engraved maps is Smith's famous "Map of Virginia" (here in what Philip Burden describes as the tenth state). Besides Smith's Virginia map, Purchas includes two other maps of the greatest importance for North American cartography. The first of these is the "Briggs" map of North America, generally considered the first map to show California as an island. The Briggs map is also the first to note New Mexico by that name, and the first to name the Hudson River and Hudson Bay. The other notable American map is William Alexander's depiction of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts north to Newfoundland. As Burden notes, this is the first map to record many place names and is a "map of great importance." This set of Purchas is also notable for containing the engraved title, which is usually lacking or supplied in facsimile. Purchas began work on his massive collection in 1611, and published various editions of a short collection, with the similar title of "Purchas His Pilgrimage," over the next ten years. That publication, however, was merely a precursor to the present work, an entirely different book and arguably the greatest collection of travels and voyages ever published. The first two volumes are mainly devoted to travels in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The third volume largely treats northern explorations and America. The fourth volume is almost entirely devoted to America. The fifth volume, PILGRIMAGE, is a supplement to all of the preceding parts and properly completes a set of Purchas' PILGRIMES.

        RELACION CIERTA Y VERDADERA DE LA FELIZ VITORIA Y PROSPEROS SUCESSOS QUE EN LA INDIA ORIENTAL HAN CONSEGUIDO LOS PORTUGUESES, CONTRA ARMADAS MUY PODEROSAS DE OLANDO, Y PERSIA, ESTE AÑO DE 1624. LA FECHA EN LA CIUDAD DE GOA, CABEÇA DE AQUEL REYNO, A 27. DE MARÇO, DEL DICHO AÑO, Y VINO EN LA NAO SANTO TOMÊ

      Madrid, 1625. Small folio. Dbd. Light contemporary annotations in margins of each page. Early folds. Loss, repaired in silk, to gutter and outer margins and along one fold, affecting a few characters of text on p.[4]. Overall very good. Rare Spanish newsletter reporting on recent victories by the Portuguese against the Dutch, the Persians, and others throughout Asia in 1624. The early 17th century saw the Dutch begin to present a serious threat to Portuguese power and commerce in the East, and by the mid- 1620s the Portuguese were beleaguered by constant attacks by the Dutch navy and its various Asian allies. The present Spanish newsletter celebrates one of the last great series of Dutch defeats by the Portuguese, who are lauded here by their Iberian partners as worldwide defenders of the Catholic faith holding their ground against overwhelming odds. Within a few years the Dutch would clearly gain the upper hand in Asia, both militarily and commercially, and by 1663 would control much of the Malabar Coast, Ceylon, Indonesia, Malacca, and European trade with Japan, leaving Portugal only with bases at Macao, East Timor, and Portuguese India. The newsletter discusses several naval battles off the coast of Persia, down the Malabar Coast to Ceylon, to Malacca, China, and Macao. A significant portion of the pamphlet describes the heavy Portuguese losses sustained by repeated attacks on Macao by the Dutch, who by this time had established a base in the Pescadores Islands. In the last paragraph attention is turned to the activities of the Jesuits in Ethiopia (described here as the "Realm of Prester John") and the recent conversion of Ethiopian King Suseynos to Roman Catholicism. Palau records four printings of the text, assigning priority to the present document and locating one copy at the National Library in Madrid. Palau also notes that a copy of this printing was sold by Maggs Bros. for £5 5s in 1927 and by Melchor García for 35 pesetas in 1934. OCLC locates four copies, at the Bavarian State Library in Germany, the University of Amsterdam, the Newberry Library, and the University of Chicago.

        Lo Inganno de gl'Occhi

      Pietro Cecconcelli, Florence 1625 - 17thC SPANISH CRIMSON MOROCCO GILT. FIRST EDITION Folio. pp. [12] 152 [2]. Roman letter, woodcut foliated and historiated initials and head and tailpieces, numerous quarter, half and three-quarter page scientific diagrams and illustrations to text. T-p with engraved arms of Cardinal Carlo de Medici, 17th C autograph of William Godolphin and another later, elaborate printer's device to last leaf. Old dampstain to extreme upper inner corner of a few leaves, foxed throughout. A good, well-margined copy in sumptuous mid-17th C Spanish crimson morocco gilt, large gilt arms of Felipe Ramirez de Guzman and his second wife Anna Carafa on upper cover, Felipe's personal emblem on lower, surmounted with his motto 'revoluta foecundant', spine gilt in compartments, upper joint repaired towards head, gilt corner ornaments and roll tooled border. Preserved in elaborate modern leather box with green morocco and wooden inlay. Very rare first and only early edition of Accolti's 'Deception of the Eyes,' on optics and practical perspective, of particular interest to painters. The work is divided into three parts, the first on surfaces, the second of objects - i.a. pillars, crosses and a lute, and the third on light and shadow. The work represents an important contribution to the theory of perspective and vanishing points, also examining anamorphosis and the camera obscura. While perspectival anamorphosis, which contrasts the distortion and resolution of an image by a slight physical movement of the beholder, had been employed since the Renaissance, perhaps most famously in Hans Holbein's 'The Ambassadors', Accolti here demonstrates the development of the baroque understanding of perspective of the traditional, or 'optic' image by recommending the use of a plane mirror to conjoin two points of view of an image, with the aim of making them interchangeable and simultaneous, an "effect of perspective which is as strange as it is delightful and ingenious". This laid the foundation for the evolution to the use of mirrors of different shapes and the study of catoptric anamorphosis. The work also contains the first printing of part of Leonardo's "Trattato della Pittura," which appears at the end of the volume, and touches upon techniques for the depiction of the human body and the use of colour. Pietro Accolti (1578-1642), descendant of a famous Aretine family, was a painter, architect, librarian and mathematician. This is his only printed work. Felipe Ramirez de Guzman, duke of Medina de las Torres (c.1600-1668) was viceroy of Naples from 1637-1644. He had a substantial library, much of it bound uniformly with this volume. William Godolphin was almost certainly Sir William (c1634-1646) Charles II's envoy and later ambassador in Madrid. Rumours of his conversion to Catholicism occasioned his recall, but Godolphin preferred to relinquish his career but remain in Spain, a Catholic. BM STC It. I p. 4. Brunet VI, 495. Gamba n.1784.

Y contienne lo siguiente en nuestra lengua Castellana. Zaragoza, "Imperial ciudad de Augusta" [= Zaragoza], 1626. Folio. Disbound, with a blank endleaf at the end.

      CCPB 000039164-6 (5 copies); Palau 61143; WorldCat (5 copies); cf. Knuttel 3663 (Dutch ed.). First and only Spanish edition of a pamphlet giving an account of the ill-fated British attempt in November 1625 to capture the Spanish fleet laden with silver and other precious goods from the West Indies and harass Spain with an armada of 100 ships, a debacle that cost the British £250,000 and the lives of more than a thousand men without yielding any booty. The present anonymous account of the events is said to have been written in Spanish but was first published in Dutch in 1626 by Anthony Jansz. Tongerloo in The Hague.George Villiers, first Duke of Buckingham, planned the mission as a glorious military triumph like the sinking of the Spanish Armada 37 years before. He sent an armada of 100 ships, but they were poorly maintained and provisioned merchant ships and were led by Sir Edward Cecil, a celebrated army commander with no naval experience. Reaching Spain too late to attempt to take the West Indian fleet, Cecil instead decided to attack Cádiz. Given the insufficient provisions, he let his landing party take wine vats from the local stores. The result was that the Spanish army slaughtered a thousand drunken soldiers who never fired a shot. The captains of the ships, more concerned with protecting their ships than with fighting, let the Spanish ships escape. It was left to the Dutch Admiral Piet Hein to successfully capture the Spanish silver fleet in the West Indies in 1628.With some tears and chips along the gutter fold, not approaching the text, but otherwise in good condition. The blank endleaf is nearly detached.

      Paris, [A. Vitré], 1625. - 4to. (24), 315, (12) pp. With two printer's devices in prelims. (Bound with) II: [Barhebraeus, Gregorius]. Veteris philosophi Syri de sapientia divina. Poema aenigmaticum. Ibid., 1628. 4 ff. (incl. final blank), 35, (1) pp. With printer's device to t. p. Calf binding (c. 1800), covers and spine gilt, leading edges and inner dentelle gilt. First complete edition of the Psalter in Syriac. "The text, which includes Ps. CLI, is based on three manuscripts, one of which had been sent to the editor by George, the Maronite Archbishop of Nicosia. The Latin version professes to be as literal a translation as possible of the Syriac text" (Darlow/M.). The present Paris edition and the one published at Leiden in the same year by Erpenius are the first two European editions of the Psalter in the Syriac language. While both are printed in Syriac and Latin, Erpenius's edition omits psalm 151 (cf. Smitskamp 80). Edited by the Maronite Gabriel Sionita (1577-1648), principally involved in the 1645 Paris polyglot Bible, printed with the types of Savary de Brèves. - Bound with the sole edition of Barhebraeus's Syriac poem. "Sionite édita et traduisit ce poème syriaque de Barhebraeus, mais sans en avoir identifié l’auteur. Pour lui c’est un auteur inconnu qui a composé ce poème sur la sagesse divine" (Le livre et le Liban). Even library catalogues frequently fail to identify the author (or cite the editor Sionita). - Catalogue clipping mounted on front endpaper. Psalter title has ms. ownership and several stamps. Title of Barhebraeus stamped; all edges remargined to page dimensions of Psalter.

        North Part of America Conteyning Newfoundland, New England, Virginia, Florida, New Spaine, and Nova Francia Wth Ye Riche Isles of Hispaniola, Cuba, Jamaica and Port Rieco, on the South, and Upon Ye West the Large and Goodly Iland of California

      London. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1625. Map. The famous 1625 Briggs map of North America, showing California as an island. The map from the borders is 11 1/4" by 14". There is a vertical fold in the middle where it was bound in, with the paper binding stub on one side on the back. Map edge has a few small chips and tears at the fold edges. Paper browned with some darker spots in margins. A water mark and a plate mark are visible. The image is cropped slightly due to scanner size; more scans available upon request. This was the first widely published map to put forth a number of features, based on less well known earlier maps. The idea of California being an island influenced cartographers for the next century, basing their own maps on this and another map published around the same time by Abraham Goos. This map was designed by Henry Briggs for publication in Samuel Purchas' "Purchas His Pilgrimes," a set of four volumes of travel accounts with a volume on America. Briggs, a mathematician known for popularizing base 10 logarithms, first published a treatise on the Northwest Passage in 1622, where an earlier version of this map appeared. There is debate over whether Goos' or Briggs' map existed first, but Briggs' map is at least the first English edition to use the names of Hudson Bay, Fretum Hudson (Hudson Strait) and other eastern coastal features. The engraver, noted in the lower right corner, was Renold Elstracke, one of England's early noted engravers. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 1 pp .

        La petite thèse (Le triomphe de la vierge).

      1625 1625 - Radierung, 1625, auf Bütten. 55,7:36,1 cm. Literatur: Lieure 562, III (von III). – Ganz ausgezeichneter, kräftiger Druck bis an die Einfassungslinie geschnitten. Zwei horizontale Knickfalten, Mittelfalte geglättet, dünne Partien im Randbereich, Randeinrisse, Tuschfleck im oberen Drittel. Diese prachtvolle Radierung, in der Callot allegorische Bilder und symbolische Figuren vereinte, erschien 1625 in einer Schrift der Franziskaner André de l’Auge und Etienne Didelot. „Callots Hauptehrentitel ist, daß er die Radierung zu einer selbständigen Kunst erhoben hat. Bislang war sie eigentlich nur als der schneller arbeitende Ersatz für den Linienstrich gepflegt worden. Gab es wohl auch hie und da Ausnahmen, so ist es doch zuerst Callot, der sein ganzes Lebenswerk der Radierung widmet und somit ihren Anspruch auf die Ehren einer hohen, selbständigen Kunst rechtfertigt. Er hat ihr auch als erster ein spezifisches Gepräge verliehen durch den Ausbau der Kunst des ‚Deckens’, die es bekanntermaßen ermöglicht, in unvergleichlicher Weise die Luftperspektive zu beherrschen. Hier ist er nicht nur der Erfinder, wenn man sich so ausdrücken darf, gewesen, sondern auch unübertroffen geblieben, wie viele seiner Ansichten und Landschaften, vor allem sein berühmter ‚Pont neuf’, bezeugen. Sodann ist von Wichtigkeit, daß Callot der erste große ‚schöpferische’ Künstler ist, der sich damit bescheidet, lediglich Graphiker zu sein." (zit: aus: Thieme-Becker, Bd. V, S. 407).

Die Quartausgabe von Elmacinus' großer Chronik, "Tarih al-muslimin" ("Kitab al-magmu' al-mu-barak") in Erpenius' Übersetzung. Diese "Geschichte der Sarazenen" stellt eigentlich eine Geschichte des Islams von der Zeit des Propheten Mohammed bis zum Jahre 1118 dar. Erpenius, Professor der orientalischen Sprachen zu Leiden, "gehört zu den Männern, welchen das Studium der orientalischen Sprachen seine Wiedergeburt verdankt" (ADB VI, 329). "The translation of the second part of the 'Tarih al-muslimin', an Arabic chronicle written by the Copt Georgios Al-Makin in the thirteenth century. The first part was already missing from the manuscript which Erpenius used. The text and translation were published by Golius, who had to edit the last two chapters, where Erpenius had broken off. There are three editions: a folio edition containing text and translation; this quarto edition of the translation only, and a small-octavo edition of the text only. The manuscript used for this edition was lent to Erpenius by the Palatine Library, a fact which he acknowledges in the dedication to King Frederick of Bohemia [...] Next to the title and the dedication, the preliminaries contain a short anonymous note introducting the work to the reader (no date, no mention of an Arabic text), and a list of the Khalifs mentioned in the translation" (Smitskamp). - Titel etwas gebräunt; kleine, alt hinterlegte Papierdefekte in der Kalifenliste, sonst wohlerhalten. - Rahir 197.

        The Great American Voyages]. Vols. 1-9 + variant duplicate volumes of IV and VIII, in all 11 volumes, bound in 9. Mixed editions/issues, mixed German and Latin text.

      Frankfurt/Oppenheim, 1591-1625. - Folio. Bound in 9 uniform magnificent late 19th century full green morocco bindings with gilt centrepieces, gilt lines to edges of boards and gilt line-frames to inside of boards. All edges gilt and all volumes signed W. Pratt. A lovely set, exquisitely and uniformly bound, magnificently restored in the most gentle and respectful of manners, of the entire original run of De Bry's "Great American Voyages" (supplied by extra variant copies of volumes IV and VIII), the magnificent work that is responsible for shaping the European image of the New World, inventing it in the minds of the masses. Presenting a broad view of European conquests in America and the first contact with the American Indians, De Bry's Great American Voyages represents the first attempt to introduce in Europe - and on a large scale - a pictorial image of the New World as a whole. With it, the first iconography of the American Indian had been created, and most Europeans glimpsed for the first time the wonders of the New World in the illustrations present here. For more than a century, the European view of the New World was dominated by the present work. Theodor de Bry himself published the first six parts (in German and Latin simultaneously), and after his death, his widow and his two sons issued the three following parts. "It appears that they intended to stop there" (Sabin III, 20). However, 17 years later, Johann Theodor decided to publish another three volumes (1619-24). These are not present here. The present set is a mix of the German and Latin volumes (which appeared simultaneously), and as always in a mix of editions and issues. Due to the great scarcity as well as the complex bibliographical nature of "The Great American Voyages", no sets of this great work are said to be alike. They are always made up of different languages, editions, and issues, and there is said to be no such thing as a "complete set". Copies of sets are almost always in very poor condition. - With the book plate of John Jay Paul (dated 1913 and 1914) to each volume, and each volume with a tipped-in manuscript note describing issue points and/or the main restoration work (one dated 1919). - Gentle washing, pressing, and a few restorations; some maps neatly mounted, 2 maps supplied in facsimile (being the map in both copies of vol. VIII, which is not always present and thus technically not lacking), and a few leaves supposedly supplied from other copies. Occasional slight cropping. All in all a very handsome and well preserved.

Middleburgh: Jan Pieters vande Venne, 1625. First Edition of Father Cats' illustrated handbook of Marriage, a key illustrated book produced during the Dutch Golden Age.

Verstraelen and D. van Bremden. Houwelyck is divided into the six divisions of a woman's life, namely; a virgin, sweetheart, bride, woman, mother, and widow, each stage evocatively captured in van de Venne's poignant engravings. Additionally the plates illustrate cultural aspects of Holland (which had just recently won its independence), in lively Dutch scenes of its citizens in contemporary costume; outdoor activities such as hunting, feasting, dancing, sporting and fishing are depicted, as well as indoor activities, such as knitting or even gazing into the fireplace on a winter's night. The appendix consists of excerpts from other writers and court cases relating to the subject of marriage.

        Elzevier-Sammlung von Fritz W. Weddigen. The Weddigen Elzevier-Collection. Gleichzeitig die Bibliographie aller jemals erschienenen elzevierschen "Republiken" in allen bekannten Varianten, insgesamt 81 Titel in 78 Bänden, und zahlreiche weitere Drucke des Hauses Elzevier, darin enthalten eine kleine Teilsammlung "Grotiana", sowie die zugehörige Sekundärliteratur. Übrigens liegen die allermeisten Bände in meist gut erhaltenen zeitgenössischen Pergamenteinbänden und nicht, wie es auf dem Höhepunkt der Elzevieromanie üblich war, in nachgebundenen Pariser Meister- Maroquineinbänden vor, nicht unbedingt ein Nachteil - allerdings beim Sammeln, sicherlich nicht nur seinerzeit, ein großer Vorteil: die reich verzierten, meisterlichen Ledereinbände sind auch damals schon extrem rar und teuer gewesen und die Titel deswegen oft genug auch sehr beschnitten.

      Leiden, Elzevier 1625.. Die Elzevier-Sammlung von Fritz W. Weddigen, darin enthalten eine komplette Reihe aller "Republiken" (33 in 81 Varianten, in 78 Bänden) Wir bieten eine wichtige Sammlung von Elzevier-Drucken an, die eine komplette Reihe aller jemals erschienenen 33 "Republiken" enthält, mit allen Varianten und Auflagen, hauptsächlich in zeitgenössischen Pergamentbänden und in akzeptabler Erhaltung, insgesamt 81 erschienene Ausgaben aus der Zeit von 1625 bis 1660. Wir haben die gesamte Sammlung peinlich genau beschrieben, sie katalogisiert und somit erste vollständige Bibliographie der "Republiken" verfaßt. Die Sammlung wurde zwischen den beiden Weltkriegen von Fritz W. Weddigen, Wuppertal-Barmen (* 1885 - 1971 +) zusammengetragen, der während des 2. Weltkrieges die meisten seiner Bücher verlor, darunter auch viele Elzeviere. Glücklicherweise wurde die Reihe der "Republiken" gerettet und gleich nach dem Krieg begann er wieder zu sammeln, neben anderen Büchern auch so viele Elzeviere, wie er bekommen konnte. Wir erwarben diese wichtige Elzevier-Sammlung, die nach der Phiebig-Sammlung, die ursprünglich in London versteigert werden sollte, aber zurückgezogen und einzeln verkauft wurde, nun wohl die wichtigste in privater Hand ist. Die Sammlung wird als Ganzes und nicht einzeln verkauft, die Modalitäten, die Zahlung und den Versand betreffend, müssen verhandelt werden. Die komplette Reihe der "Republiken" mit allen ihren Varianten und Neudrucken besteht insgesamt aus 81 Titeln und ist nach unserem besten Wissen die einzige vollständige Sammlung nicht nur in privater Hand, sondern auch in öffentlichen Sammlungen, denn sogar Bibliotheken mit riesigen Elzevier-Beständen wie Stockholm, Amsterdam, Paris oder Winterthur besitzen keine vollständige Reihe der "Republiken". Die Sammlung besteht nicht nur aus der Reihe der "Republiken", sondern auch aus wohl gewählten Stücken der übrigen Elzevier-Produktion, hauptsächlich aus der "Klassiker-Reihe" (Boccaccio, Cäsar, Vergil ...) und den wichtigsten die Elzeviere betreffenden Referenzwerken, Bibliographien, Katalogen und einigen Stücken, die den Sammler und seine Sammlung selbst betreffen, alles in allem 175 Katalog-Nummern mit über 250 Stücken: I. Bibliographie der "Republiken" 001.1 - 033.1 (81 in 78 vols.) II. Varia Elzevieriana (in 12°) 035 - 117 darin enthalten "Grotiana" (059 - 069) III. Varia Elzevieriana (größer als 12°) 118 -141) IV. Pseudo-Elzeviere 142 - 153 V. Sekundärliteratur zu Elzevier 154 - 175 Register Konkordanz (Zu Weddigen vergl. Adolph: Rheinische Sammler. S. 143 ff.) ------------------------------------------------ Ernsthaften Interessenten nehmen bitte Kontakt mit uns auf, ihnen senden wir auf Wunsch gerne eine ausführlichere und illustrierte Beschreibung zu.. ..................................................... The Weddigen Elzevier-Collection, including a complete run of all the "Republics" (33 published in 81 variants and reprints in 78 volumes) We are able to offer an important collection of books printed by the Elzeviers, including and most important, a complete run of all the 33 published "Republics" ever, with all the variants and editions, mostly in contemporary vellum bindings and in acceptable condition, 81 in total, dating from 1625 to 1660. We described the entire collection meticulously, catalogued it and wrote the first complete bibliography of the "Republics". The collection had been formed between the two world wars by the german collector Fritz W. Weddigen, Wuppertal-Barmen (* 1885 - 1971 +), who lost during the second world war most of his books, including very much Elzeviers. By miracle the complete Republics-Series was saved and immediately after the war he began to recollect, among other books, as many Elzeviers as he could get. Happily we bought this important Elzevier-Collection which is, after the Phiebig-Collection, originally offered for auction in 2001 (414 nos.), but then withdrawn and sold "en bloc" to a dutch dealer and later "en detail" apparently to the Elzevier Heritage Collection, nowadays the most important in private hands, which we now proudly offer for sale. The Collection will be sold "en bloc" to keep it together, modalities of pre-viewing, payment and shipment are to be discussed. The complete run of all the Republics with all their variants and reprints consists of 81 titles in total and is, after our best knowing the only complete collection, not only in private hands, as even the libraries with huge Elzevier possessions, as Stockholm, Amsterdam, Paris or Wintherthur do not own complete runs of the Republics. The collection consists not only of the Republics Series but well chosen items of the rest of the famous Elzevier production, mainly the "Classics Series" (Boccaccio, Caesar, Vergil ... ) and the most important works of the relevant reference works, bibliographies, catalogues and a lot of ephemera stuff about the collector himself, in all there are 175 numbers with more than 250 items: I. Bibliography of the "Republics" 001.1 - 033.1 (81 in 78 vols.) II. Varia Elzevieriana (in 12°) 035 - 117 included diverse "Grotiana" (059 - 069) III. Varia Elzevieriana (> 12°) 118 -141 IV. Pseudo-Elzeviers 142 - 153 V. About the Elzeviers 154 - 175 -bibliographical material -Ephemera (of and about Weddigen) Register Concordance List of reference works we used ---------------------------------------------- If you are really interested to acquire the collection, please contact us, we'll be pleased to send you more detailed descreptions and pictures. * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich.

        The Copie of a Petition presented to the King of Spaine, by Capitaine Peter Ferdinand de Quir [extract from] Purchas his Pilgrimes

      London, 1625. Folio, 12 pp. extract from Purchas, printing the Quiros letter (pp. 1422-1432); very good, in appealing modern half calf, marbled boards. Quiros in English, taken from Purchas. An ideal "introductory" copy of Quiros: this extract from the magisterial voyage anthology of Purchas (Purchas His Pilgrimes, London, 1625) is only the second printing in English of Quiros's celebrated Eighth Memorial to the King of Spain describing the wonders of Terra Australis. In English it is predated only by the 1617 London publication Terra Australis incognita, rightly considered one of the highlights of early Australian books.The Eighth Memorial of Quiros is one of the most famous of all voyage texts, and more than any other single cause was responsible for the search for a Southern Continent that only ultimately ceased with Cook's discoveries. Between 1607 and 1614 Quiros submitted about 65 memorials to Philip III and members of his councils seeking support for the further exploration and settlement of the Southern Continent. Circulation of the Spanish memorials was highly restricted and all but a few remained in manuscript. Only one - the Eighth, which appeared originally in December 1608 or January 1609 - was translated (into Dutch, English, French, German and Italian) and published separately outside Spain, becoming as a result the best known and the most influential.Quiros's conviction that the Southland was a reality was formed when he accompanied Mendaña's disastrous attempt in 1595 to revisit and colonise the Solomons. 'Mendaña himself died; a starving remnant was brought over unknown seas to Manila only through the superb navigation of the chief pilot, the Portuguese seaman Quiros. It was Quiros who, undeterred, took up the mission, a mission to him evangelical as well as geographical. A man of extraordinary qualities, with something Franciscan in his spirit, he combined professional skill with a continental faith that swept him far beyond the touch of reality, that made his path both a triumphant and a dolorous one; so that in the end, foredoomed to failure as he was from the nature of things, it perhaps mattered little that he was a poor leader of men. After much travail, he sailed from Callao in December 1605... [and] fetched up at something quite different... the land he called Austrialia del Espiritu Santo, the northernmost large island of the New Hebrides group; and here, he was sure, where he proclaimed the city of New Jerusalem, was the much-desired continent... Quiros returned to Spain, ceaselessly and fruitlessly to importune crown and councils, with memorials and charts, for still another expedition. The Spanish effort was over. His memorials, glowing with their confident transmutation of hopes into matter of fact, spread through Europe. Quiros, who had discovered a dozen islands, became the publicist of the continent. Had he failed in his great purpose? He could hold up a light to the future' (Beaglehole IV, pp. 111-2).
