        Tabacologia, hoc est tabaci, seu Nicotianae descriptio medico-chirurgico-pharmaceutica, vel ejus praeparatio et usus in omnibus ferme corporis humani in commodis.

      Lugduni Batavorum (Leyden), Elzevier, 1626. 4to (21.4 x 15.7 cm). Engraved title page, engraved portrait of Neander; [xxxvi], 256, [iii] pp., including page-sized engravings (plates) of tobacco plants, cultivation and curing of tobacco, pipes, etc. Contemporary vellum with script title in an old hand on the spine; slightly later endpapers.l A rare work on tobacco and its merits by the early experimenter Johann Neander (1596 or 1597-after 1632), from Bremen. Second edition, given the frontispiece dated 1626. The Epistola dedicatoria cryptically contains the year 1622 ("7. Kal. Maij styl. Gregor. anno DoMInI IesV ChrIstI SerVatorIs VerI"). Hirsch IV, 332: Arents coll. 84, 89a: "... a popular compendium of information relating to the 'scientific' methods of preparing and using tobacco 'for all the ailments of human body'. The cuts... illustrate the native methods of cultivating, gathering, curing and preparing tobacco.". Bound in the rear, unpaginated, is a long (3 pp.) verse in Dutch by Ioost (or Joost) van Ravelingen on the merits and curses "Tabacks Lof en Lastering" of tabacco, and dedicated to Neander. Van Ravelingen is better known as editor of Dodoens' Kruydeboeck. Like in the first edition, pages 55, 69, 167, 249, 253 wrongly numbered as 45, 65, 147, 253, 257. This may suggest that only the title page (dated 1626) is in "2nd edition". Plate on "p. 253" = 249) bound after, instead of before p. 251., the same with page "257" (=253). Edges with a few repairs, using later vellum, some small wormholes, spots and wrinkles to the front and back cover. First text page with old owner's inscription and repair at the top margin. Although the flyleaves are old, they are not contemporary. The last few leaves with a small brownish spot, otherwise the interior is clean, without worming or other defects. Overall a very good, copy. Arents, p. 30; BM(NH) Cat., p. 1404 (noted, but not in BM(NH) library); Pritzel, 6624. Not in Stafleu & Cowan.

        America with those known parts in that unknowne world both people and manner of buildings discribed and inlarged by I.S. Ano 1626.

      Londra 1626 - Si tratta di una delle più emblematiche carte d'America mai prodotte, presentata qui nel suo secondo stato, con l'aggiunta di Boston, Conectacut, Lon Ile, Mary land and Carolina. La mappa è di grande importanza perché vanta tutta una serie di "primati": è la prima mappa inserita in un atlante a raffigurare la California come un'isola, e la prima a rappresentare con esattezza la costa orientale nord americana. Cartograficamente è basata sulle prime mappe dell'olandese Abraham Goos, ma segue gli aggiornamenti della mappa di Henry Briggs del 1625, in cui appunto la California ha una forma insulare. E' di rilievo la completa assenza dei Grandi Laghi - che nel 1626 dovevano ancora essere concepiti dai cartografi europei. Non è riportato nessuno dei regni leggendari: Quivara, Teguayo, Cibola, ecc sono noti. Nel Sud America è riportato il leggendario Lago Parime, nella Guiana, associato al mito di El Dorado; più a sud il mitico lago Eupana. Un'altra particolarità, è l'indicazione dello Stretto di Le Maire, che separa la Terra del Fuoco da un altro misterioso istmo chiamato "States Land", che in effetti corrisponde alla moderna Isola degli Stati. Il navigatore Jacob Le Maire aveva attraversato il canale tra le due isole, a cui darà il suo nome, durante la sua navigazione intorno a Capo Horn e nel Pacifico, nel 1615. Nell'Artico, sono riportate le due isole fantasma di Frislandia e Brasil, anche nota come Hy Brasil, di cui si narrava che fosse completamente avvolta dalla nebbia e che fosse visibile solo una volta ogni sette anni. L'ultima mappa a riportare l'isola del Brasil, come Brazil Rock, è una carta nautica del 1865. Splendida mappa, incisa da Anraham Goos per John Speed. La bella mappa è impreziosita da vignette che la decorano su tre lati e illustrano i popoli indigeni, mentre le vignette del margine superiore contengono vedute di città tra le quali Avana, Città del Messico, Rio de Janeiro, Cusco, e altri importanti insediamenti del Sud America. Incisione su rame, bella coloritura coeva, margini sottili, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A nice example of John Speed's 1626 map of America here in its second state, with the cartographic additions of Boston, Conectacut, Lon Ile, Mary land and Carolina. One of the most iconic maps of America ever made, this map is surrounded by decorative vignettes illustrating the indigenous peoples and cities of the Americas. This map is both beautiful and important. It features a number of first, including being the first atlas map to depict California as an island and to accurately depict the east coast of North America. Cartographically it follows on the earlier maps of the Dutchman Abraham Goos, the engraver, with updates to reflect the 1625 Briggs vision of an insular California. This is the first atlas map to represent California as an island. The idea of an insular California first appeared as a work of fiction in Garci Rodriguez de Montalvo's c. 1510 romance Las Sergas de Esplandian, where he writes Know, that on the right hand of the Indies there is an island called California very close to the side of the Terrestrial Paradise; and it is peopled by black women, without any man among them, for they live in the manner of Amazons. Baja California was subsequently discovered in 1533 by Fortun Ximenez, who had been sent to the area by Hernan Cortez. When Cortez himself traveled to Baja, he must have had Montalvo's novel in mind, for he immediately claimed the 'Island of California' for the Spanish King. By the late 16th and early 17th century ample evidence had been amassed, through explorations of the region by Francisco de Ulloa, Hernando de Alarcon and others, that California was in fact a peninsula. However, by this time other factors were in play. Francis Drake had sailed north and claimed 'New Albion' (identified here on the northwest coast of California Island) near modern day Washington or Vancouver for England. The Spanish thus needed to promote Cortez's claim on the 'Island of Calif

Als einzeln paginierter Druck und mit einem eigenen Titelblatt zusammen mit dem "Centiloquium Circini Proportionum" des Georg Galgemair erschienene Abhandlung über das "Organon Catholicum", es „behandelt Herstellung (bzw. Aufbau) und Gebrauch von Peilinstrumenten, die der ältere Apian erfand. Dies geht aus den Vorworten unmißverständlich hervor. Galgemair hat freilich seine Vorlagen gründlich und selbständig durchdacht und mit bemerkenswertem didaktischem Geschick präsentiert. Das sogenannte Inventum Apiani ist ausschließlich für terrestrische Anwendungen bestimmt. Im Titel des Inventum wird betont, daß man ohne alle Rechnung auskomme Galgemair ist ein kompetenter Sachbuchautor, kein selbständiger Forscher" (Gerhard Betsch, Praxis geometrica und Kartographie an der Universität Tübingen im 16. und frühen 17.

Die Holzschnitt-Tafeln zeigen geometrische Figuren „Dorsum sine Rotula", die große einen astrologischen Jahreskreis (36,5 x 30,5 cm!) mit dem von Galgemair nach Apian erfundenen Instrument: „Nun ist die Peilscheibe des Inventum mit einem Quadratnetz überzogen, ähnlich unserem Millimeterpapier, nur nicht so fein unterteilt. Mit Hilfe dieses Quadratnetzes, und mit etwas Übung, kann man die gesuchte 4. Proportionale direkt auf der Peilscheibe ablesen. Ganz ohne Rechnung geht es im Grunde freilich doch nicht, denn das Quadratnetz muß als passender Maßstab interpretiert werden" (ebenda).

Met afbeeldingen van ?a gentleman?? en ?a gentlewoman??, ?a Brabander?? en ?a Brabanders wife??, ?a Hollander?? en ?a Hollanders wife??, ?a fisherman?? en ?a fishers wife??, ?a country man?? en ?a country woman??, als ook standgezichten van Amsterdam, Antwerpen, Gent, Middelburg, Groningen, Zutphen, Utrecht en Atrecht (tegenw. Arras). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 42 x 53,5 cm.Oorspronkelijk werkte John Speed (1552 - 1629) in het kleermakersbedrijf van zijn vader in Chesire. In 1567 verhuisde hij naar Londen. Door zijn grote geschiedkundige kennis kreeg hij toegang tot de wetenschappelijke kringen. Hij sloot zich aan bij het Antiquarisch Genootschap, waar hij werd aangemoedigd om onderzoekswerk te doen. Tevens verwierf hij in 1598 een betrekking en werkruimte in een douanekantoor, zodat hij in zijn levensonderhoud kon voorzien en zijn onderzoekswerk kon voortzetten.Speed brak door met zijn folio atlas: Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Deze atlas verscheen in 1612 en bevatte zo?n 64 kaarten van graafschappen in Engeland en Wales, Ierland, Schotland en van enkele eilanden. De meeste kaarten bevatten ook ??n, of heel soms twee stadsplattegrondjes van de belangrijkste steden in het afgebeelde gebied. In veel gevallen was Speed daarmee de eerste die dergelijke plattegronden in gedrukte vorm uitgaf. Alleen Georg Braun & Franz Hogenberg uit Keulen waren hem eind 16de eeuw in enkele gevallen voor. De kaarten onderscheidden zich verder door veel oog voor detail en het gebruik van symbolen voor dorpen, steden, bossen, bergen en heuvels. Ook was er nogal eens een belangrijke historische gebeurtenis ergens aan de rand van het kaartbeeld afgebeeld en werden de kaarten voorzien van wapenschilden van de aldaar wonende en/of heersende families.Omdat de oorspronkelijke graveur William Rogers in 1604 overleed stelden de uitgevers van de atlas voor dat een aanzienlijk deel van de kaarten in Amsterdam gegraveerd zou worden in het atelier van Jodocus Hondius.De atlas werd zowel ongebonden als gebonden te koop aangeboden. Desgewenst werden de kaarten tegen een meerprijs ingekleurd. De oplage van de eerste druk wordt geschat op zo'n 500 exemplaren. In 1616 verscheen een uitgave in het Latijn.Als vervolg op de succesvolle uitgaves van de Theatres verscheen in 1627 het Prospect Of the Most Famous Parts of the World. Dit was een 22 tot 28 kaarten bevattende wereldatlas. Ook voor deze atlas werd een beroep gedaan op graveurs uit de omgeving van Hondius. Sommige van hen hebben hun kaarten gesigneerd: oa Abraham Goos & Dirck Gryp. Veel van de kaarten in deze uitgave waren zogenaamde 'Cartes Figuratives?, in dit geval werden de rand van de kaart aan de bovenkant opgevuld met stadsgezichten en de randen aan de zijkanten met gekostumeerde figuren. Van een dergelijke kaart is deze voorstelling van de Zeventien Provinci?n een prachtig voorbeeld.Prijs: ?2.100,-.

        Kartenspieler. Öl auf Kupferplatte.

      11, 8 x 17,6 cm, Tadell. Im Bild signiert(auf der Schmalseite der Sitzfläche des linken Spielers). - Bezaubernde detailreiche Szene von 4 Karten spielenden Männern in Innenraum.Jan van Kessel (1626 in Antwerp - 1679 in idem) was a Flemish painter of still lifes, who was the father of another painter with the same name Jan van Kessel, and Jan Brueghel the Elder's grandson. He was the son of Hieronymus van Kessel and Paschasia Brueghel, and was a pupil of his father and his uncle Jan Brueghel the Younger. He became a member of the Antwerp Guild of Saint Luke in 1644 as "blomschilder" (flower painter). He was influenced by Daniel Seghers. According to Houbraken, he was famous in his lifetime for the neatness of his flower paintings and Cornelis de Bie wrote a poem about him.He specialized in small-scale pictures of subjects gleaned from the natural world such as floral still lifes and allegorical series showing animal kingdoms, the four elements, the senses, or the parts of the world. Obsessed with picturesque detail, van Kessel worked from nature and used illustrated scientific texts as sources for filling his pictures with objects represented with almost scientific accuracy.Jan van Kessel painted many animals (especially insects) and flowers, as well as some mythological and biblical scenes. his choice of subject leaned towards those which included animals and plants. His pupils were his sons Jan and Ferdinand van Kessel.[1]

        Disputationum de sancto matrimonii sacramento...editio haec postrema superiorum auctoritate correcta.

      Apud Martinum Nutium colophon: Ex typographia Henrici Aertsi], 1626. Early edition, following the first complete printing of 1605 (preceded by a partial printing in 1602), of this sometimes controversial, oft-reprinted treatise on marriage, morality, and sexual sin. Each of the three books has its own separate title-page. Brunet calls this "un ouvrage célèbre, à cause de quelques passages singuliers qui s'y trouvent,"while Englisch notes that "Dieses Werk enthalt alle moglichen Variationen uber die Geschlechtssunde in umstandlichster und eingehendster Behandlung," and Sommervogel simply states that the work caused its author "quelques chagrins" despite the purity and austerity of his personal life (a Jesuit from the time he was 17 years old, the Cordova-born Sánchez was said by his spiritual director to have "carried his baptismal innocence to the grave," according to the Catholic Encyclopedia online).

        Golden Fleece

      1626. First Edition . VAUGHAN, William. The Golden Fleece Divided into Three Parts, under which are discovered the Errours of Religion, the Vices and Decayes of the Kingdome, and lastly the Wayes to get Wealth, and to restore Trading so much complayned of. Transported from Cambrioll Colchos, out of the southermost Part of the Iland [sic], commonly called the Newfoundland, by Orpheus Junior, for the generall and perpetuall Good of Great Britaine. London, Francis Williams, 1626. Square octavo, contemporary limp vellum recased, hand-lettered spine title, later endpapers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $16,500.Scarce first edition of this early allegorical promotion of settlements in Newfoundland, ""one of the earliest contributions to English literature from America” (Baer).""Deeply concerned about the poor economic conditions prevailing in Wales,"" William Vaughan ""became interested in overseas colonization as a means for improving the lot of his countrymen. As a result he decided to try to plant a colony in Newfoundland, largely because it was easily accessible, and also because it possessed an established fishery. In 1616 he purchased from the Newfoundland Company the part of the Avalon Peninsula to the south of a line from Caplin Bay across to Placentia Bay, and decided to name the colony 'New Cambriol.' In the following year, Vaughan set out a few ill-prepared colonists to the harbour of Aquaforte, where they spent the winter huddled in cabins built by migratory fishermen for summer use. In 1618, Vaughan hired Richard Whitbourne to bring colonists and provisions to the settlement, and appointed him governorÂ…moving it to a better location at RenewsÂ… but in the end only six colonists spent the winter of 1619 at Renews, and the settlement was abandoned in the following yearÂ… Vaughan did his best to promote Newfoundland settlement by publication of his somewhat fanciful book The Golden Fleece"" (Howgego). ""The work is one of the earliest contributions to English literature from America, and was intended to advertise Vaughan's colony. It is a queer fantasy in prose and verse, in which a succession of historical characters present complaints against the evils of the age in the court of Apollo, and finally find the Golden Fleece in Newfoundland"" (Baer). ""Vaughan's treatise was divided into three parts, the first concerned with religion, the second with the 'Vices and Decayes of the Kingdome,' and the third with 'wayes to get wealth, and to restore Trading. The third part focused on colonizationÂ… he created a unique text by bringing into this dialogue the central figures of contemporary Jacobean and Elizabethan colonization, including John Guy, Captain John Mason, Richard Whitbourne, Francis Drake and Martin Frobisher"" (McDiarmid & Collinson). The Golden Fleece is an extraordinary work, in vivid contrast to the more prosaic and practical propagandist tracts on Newfoundland which Whitbourne and Mason had written. Its purpose was simple enough: Vaughan was anxious to promote the island as a place for settlement. Success, he believed, would relieve overpopulation at home, treble England's present income from the fishery which he estimated to be 20,000 pounds, and generally increase tradeÂ…Vaughan provided us with some of the earliest English literature on North America"" (Gillian Cell). Lacking the extraordinarily rare map by John Mason, which ""is very rarely found with the book"" (Church). STC 2460. Sabin 98693. Church 409. Howgego V18. Interior generally fine, blank leaves between parts (V4, Oo2) and blanks at both front and rear excised. Scarce.

        Zeventien Provinciën - John Speed.

      ?A NEW MAP OF THE XVII PROVINCES OF LOW GERMANIE, mended a new in a manie places.?'Kopergravure van de Zeventien Provinciën vervaardigd in 1626, van cartograaf John Speed. Met afbeeldingen van ?a gentleman?' en ?a gentlewoman?', ?a Brabander?' en ?a Brabanders wife?', ?a Hollander?' en ?a Hollanders wife?', ?a fisherman?' en ?a fishers wife?', ?a country man?' en ?a country woman?', als ook standgezichten van Amsterdam, Antwerpen, Gent, Middelburg, Groningen, Zutphen, Utrecht en Atrecht (tegenw. Arras). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 42 x 53,5 cm.Oorspronkelijk werkte John Speed (1552 - 1629) in het kleermakersbedrijf van zijn vader in Chesire. In 1567 verhuisde hij naar Londen. Door zijn grote geschiedkundige kennis kreeg hij toegang tot de wetenschappelijke kringen. Hij sloot zich aan bij het Antiquarisch Genootschap, waar hij werd aangemoedigd om onderzoekswerk te doen. Tevens verwierf hij in 1598 een betrekking en werkruimte in een douanekantoor, zodat hij in zijn levensonderhoud kon voorzien en zijn onderzoekswerk kon voortzetten.Speed brak door met zijn folio atlas: Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Deze atlas verscheen in 1612 en bevatte zo?n 64 kaarten van graafschappen in Engeland en Wales, Ierland, Schotland en van enkele eilanden. De meeste kaarten bevatten ook één, of heel soms twee stadsplattegrondjes van de belangrijkste steden in het afgebeelde gebied. In veel gevallen was Speed daarmee de eerste die dergelijke plattegronden in gedrukte vorm uitgaf. Alleen Georg Braun & Franz Hogenberg uit Keulen waren hem eind 16de eeuw in enkele gevallen voor. De kaarten onderscheidden zich verder door veel oog voor detail en het gebruik van symbolen voor dorpen, steden, bossen, bergen en heuvels. Ook was er nogal eens een belangrijke historische gebeurtenis ergens aan de rand van het kaartbeeld afgebeeld en werden de kaarten voorzien van wapenschilden van de aldaar wonende en/of heersende families.Omdat de oorspronkelijke graveur William Rogers in 1604 overleed stelden de uitgevers van de atlas voor dat een aanzienlijk deel van de kaarten in Amsterdam gegraveerd zou worden in het atelier van Jodocus Hondius.De atlas werd zowel ongebonden als gebonden te koop aangeboden. Desgewenst werden de kaarten tegen een meerprijs ingekleurd. De oplage van de eerste druk wordt geschat op zo'n 500 exemplaren. In 1616 verscheen een uitgave in het Latijn.Als vervolg op de succesvolle uitgaves van de Theatres verscheen in 1627 het Prospect Of the Most Famous Parts of the World. Dit was een 22 tot 28 kaarten bevattende wereldatlas. Ook voor deze atlas werd een beroep gedaan op graveurs uit de omgeving van Hondius. Sommige van hen hebben hun kaarten gesigneerd: oa Abraham Goos & Dirck Gryp. Veel van de kaarten in deze uitgave waren zogenaamde 'Cartes Figuratives?, in dit geval werden de rand van de kaart aan de bovenkant opgevuld met stadsgezichten en de randen aan de zijkanten met gekostumeerde figuren. Van een dergelijke kaart is deze voorstelling van de Zeventien Provinciën een prachtig voorbeeld.Prijs: ?2.100,-.
