        Les Oeuvres de N. Frenicle, conseiller du Roy et general en sa Cour des Monnayes.

      1629 13 parties en un volume in-8, demi-vélin blanc à la Bradel, dos lisse orné d'un petit fleuron central, titre et date calligraphiés à la plume (rel. du XIXe s.), (1) f. de titre, (6) p. de prélim., 268 p. et (1) f. de faux-titre, (6) p. de prélim., 172 p., (5) p. de table. Paris, Jean de Bordeaux, 1629. Première édition collective, partagée avec Toussainct du Bray, des oeuvres de Nicolas Frenicle, réunissant ses hymnes, élégies, sonnets et églogues. Conseiller à la cour des monnaies, l'auteur n'avait que 29 ans lorsqu'il publia ce recueil. Ami de Chapelain, Frenicle participa au groupe des "Illustres Bergers", compagnie littéraire constituée vers 1625 avec Guillaume Colletet, Jean Ogier de Gombauld, Louis Mauduit, Claude Malleville, Antoine Godeau, les frères Germain, Philippe Habert, etc. Ces jeunes gens, qui prirent modèle sur les héros de l'Astrée, se réunissaient pour cultiver la poésie dans les environs de Paris, sur les bords de la Seine. A la fois ouverts au classicisme naissant et sensibles à la spiritualité de la réforme, réunis par leur admiration pour Ronsard et Malherbe, ils s'efforçaient de concilier leur ferveur religieuse avec une littérature galante, voire gaillarde.Selon Lachèvre (cf. infra), Frenicle avait participé au Parnasse satyrique, et comme tel, fut incriminé en 1623 par le Parlement de Paris.Contient, parmi les pièces préliminaires, des pièces de L. Mauduit, J.-C. Villeneuve, C. Morin, A. Godeau, C. Malleville et Deslandes.La troisième partie ("Eglogues") figure sous page de titre et pagination particulières.(Arbour, Toussaint Du Bray', n°281. Bibliothèque De Backer, 743: "de la plus grande rareté". Brunet, II, 1390. Lachèvre, Recueils collectifs de poésies libres et satiriques', p. 225. Picot, I, 824).De la bibliothèque de Frédéric Lachèvre, avec son ex-libris gravé.Très bon exemplaire.

François, & Jean le Verrier Prestre, domestiques du dit sieur de Bethencourt. Et Mise en lumiere par M. Galien de Bethencourt, Conseiller du Roy en sa Cour de Parlement de Rouen.

      A Paris, chez Jean de Heuqueville et Michel Soly, 1629. (Traicte de la Navigation) - A Paris, chez Michel Soly, 1630. (Decouverte des Canaries). 1629 2 vol. in-12° (170 x 112 mm.) de : I. [5] ff. (Titre, Sommaire de ce Traicte), 303 pp. ; II. [10] ff. (Titre, Epître de Bergeron, Préface, Privilège du Roy), 208 pp., [6] ff. (Table des matières). Portrait de Jean de Bethencourt par Balthasar Moncornet p. 5. (N.B. : Il fût imprimé sur des papiers de qualité différente, il s'agit pour cet exemplaire du papier le plus blanc et le plus fin). Plein veau moucheté aux armes de Louis Urbain Le Fèvre de Caumartin (1653-1720), un ami Voltaire, dos à cinq nerfs ornés, pièces de titre de maroquin rouge, filet d'encadrement à froid des plats, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches dorées sur marbrure. (Très petits trous de ver à la fin du premier vol., affectant quelques lettres, ainsi que sur une douzaine de pp. à la fin du second vol.) Bel exemplaire de cet Americana de toute rareté, bien complet de ses deux parties, unique édition de la toute première publication française consacrée à lhistoire des explorations maritimes. Ce remarquable ouvrage, aussi rare sur le marché que ses contemporains le « Champlain » et le « Lescarbot », est méconnu de nombreux bibliophiles : il nest ainsi passé en vente publique aux Etats Unis quune seule fois en 30 ans. Le première partie : « Le Traité des Navigations et des Voyages et découvertes », constitue un historique du monde de lexploration aux premiers temps des découvertes, surtout focalisé sur les périples des Français, réunis par léditeur Pierre Bergeron. Elle souvre sur une étude détaillée des différentes méthodes de navigation : compas, quadrant, longitudes se référant à Gilbert, Plancius et Stevin ainsi quà dautres sources anciennes. Des chapitres traitent en détail des expéditions en Nouvelle France du Sieur de Mont, Lescarbot, Poutrincourt, Champlain, Cartier, Alfonce... Sont aussi relatés les voyages français en Floride de Sebastien Gavot et Jean Ribaut ainsi que la funeste expédition de Laudonnière. Dautres explorateurs européens sont évoqués, notamment les plus connues des expéditions espagnoles, portugaises et anglaises, ainsi que celles des Russes, des Suédois et des Hollandais, aux Amériques mais aussi en Chine, au Japon, au Tibet et en Europe... Sont ainsi relatées les relations comme la découverte du Brésil, les explorations de Vespucci, et plus tard les expéditions de Villegagnon... Le second texte, qui relate la conquête des Canaries par Jean de Béthencourt, en 1402 [-22], fut rédigé par deux chapelains de la famille de ce dernier : Pierre Bontier et Jean le Verrier. Un des premiers illustres représentants de cette vaste famille d'origine normande aujourd'hui présente au Portugal, aux Açores et en Amérique du Sud, Jean de Béthencourt, originaire de Grainville en pays de Caux sembarqua en 1402 pour La Rochelle, puis lEspagne avant de cingler vers les Canaries avec deux navires. Louvrage relate dans le détail, par de courts chapitres, chaque étape et péripétie du voyage et de la conquête de larchipel par lintrépide aventurier. Un très joli portrait gravé de lexplorateur, avec son blason, fait face au premier chapitre et une large table analytique achève louvrage. Bien quoccasionnellement mentionné comme un travail séparé (notamment par Penrose and Borba de Moraes), il est évident que le "Traicté des Navigations", tant par son propos que par son contenu, est lié au premier ouvrage, lequel le mentionne expressément dans son titre. Provenance : Louis Urbain Le Fèvre de Caumartin ( blason doré sur les plats). Très bel exemplaire. 2 vols. 12mo. Jean de Bethencourt's portrait by Balthasar Moncornet. Full calf with the arms of Louis Urbain Le Fèvre de Caumartin (1653-1720). Fine copy of this scarce Americana, complete with the 2 parts and portrait, only edition of the very first French publication dealing with the history of maritime explorations. The texts of the first part were compiled by Pierre Bergeron: it's a wonderful history of world exploration at the age of discovery, concentrated on French' voyages. The second part, written by Pierre Bontier and Jean le Verrier, is an account of the conquest of the Canary Islands by Jean de Bethencourt. Rare, with a nice portrait. Borba de Moraes I, p. 87; Gagnon I, 1679 & 3556; JCB II, p. 219 & 227; Sabin 4850 & 5073.

Titolo entro bordura architettonica figurata inc. in rame; illustrato da 77 tavole in silografia a piena pagina nel testo al recto di altrettanti fogli, di varie e interessanti macchine. Prima ed unica edizione di grande opera classica di tecnologia del Seicento, l'ultima della trattatistica rinascimentale. Il Branca (1571 - 1645) si segnalò in opere di architettura a Roma, a Loreto e Assisi, e la presente opera gli assicurò un posto di primo piano tra gli scrittori di trattati scientifici, precursori della tecnica meccanica moderna. Vi espone (fig. 25) la progenitrice delle moderne turbine a vapore ad azione, cioé l'applicazione della potenza espansiva della turbina. La grande rarità di questo libro è dovuta alla presente unica edizione data alle stampe ed alla sua scarsa diffusione, contrariamente a quanto avvenne per le opere analoghe di Zonca e Besson, che conobbero svariate edizioni in diverse lingue. Bell'esemplare, assai puro (lievissimo arrossamento uniforme della carta).

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      1629. La mappa ha la sua principale fonte nel primo stato dell'opera realizzata da Smith nel 1612, sebbene sia leggermente più larga e più finemente incisa. Il primo stato di questa lastra fu pubblicato da Hondius. Nel 1629 W. Blaeu acquistò la lastra di Hondius, ne cancellò il nome per sostituirlo con il suo, da cui il secondo stato. La mappa è conosciuta anche per la sua rappresentazione, in alto a destra, di Capo Powhatan, che agita la sua pipa mentre è seduto, come recita la didascalia, come quando il capitano John Smith veniva condotto da lui come prigioniero. Smith non era solito servirsi dell'assistenza dei nativi per aggiungere informazioni alle sue opera. Questa mappa della Virginia si impose come riferimento per le altre dell'epoca, fino alla pubblicazione dell'opera di Augustine Hermanns nel 1673. L'opera è una delle rappresentazioni più dettagliate della regione del Chesapeake, apprezzata dai collezionisti di mappe della zona. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, testo tedesco al verso, sporadiche fioriture, per il resto in otimo stato di conservazione. The map is based on the first state of Smith's map, 1612, and is slightly larger and more expertly engraved. The firts state of this plate was published by Hondius. In 1629 the Hondius plate was purchased by Blaeu who deleted Hondius' name and added his own to the imprint, constituting the second state. The map is, in part, famous for its depiction, upper left, of Chief Powhatan, waving his tobacco pipe, and seated, as the caption says, in state when Capt. John Smith was delivered to him prisoner. Smith was unusual among early mapmakers in acknowledging the assistance of native American informants. This map was the first widely disseminated version of the Smith map and therefore higly influential on other maps of the period and became the standard map of the region until Augustine Hermanns map of 1673. The map is one of the most detailed map of the Chesapeake region to date and is an essential map for collectors of this region. Copper plate, printed on contemporary laid paper, occasional foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Example from German edition of Blaeu's Atlas Amsterdam Amsterdam Burden 193 485 380

        AUGSBURG IM 30-JÄHRIGEN KRIEG: BILDAUSSCHNITT NACH EINEM FLUGBLATT NACH DER EINNAHME AUGSBURGS DURCH KÖNIG GUSTAV II. ADOLF VON SCHWEDEN.

      - Satirisches Bild aus der 2. Hälfte des 17. Jrhs. nach einem Flugblatt („Die durch Gottes Gnad erledigte Stadt Augspurg") nach der Einnahme der Stadt Augsburg durch König Gustav II. Adolf von Schweden im Zuge des Dreißigjährigen Krieges. Das Bild zeigt im Hintergrund die Stadt Augsburg sowie in der Ferne Landshut, Freyburg, München, Würzburg und Main. Im Vordergrund liegen erschlagen auf dem Boden die monströse Gestalt eines siebenköpfigen, bekrönten Drachen und eines Widders mit Barett, unter dessen Schnauze ein Schriftstück mit der Inschrift „Ablas Pro Peccatis" zu sehen ist. In der typischen Position des Siegers steht, mit noch immer gezückten und wie zum letzten Streich ausgeholtem Schwert, die ritterliche Gestalt des schwedischen Königs Gustav II. Alfons. Ursprünglich war das Bild im Kontext eines Flugblattes mit dem Titel „Die durch Gottes Gnad erledigte Stadt Augspurg" und einer erklärenden Bildunterschrift verortet. Zum geschichtlichen Hintergrund des Flugblattes: Mit dem durch Kaiser Ferdinand 1629 erlassenen Restitutionsedikts hatte die Rekatholisierung des bikonfessionellen Augsburg begonnen, die mit erheblichen Restriktionen gegen die protestantische Bevölkerung verbunden gewesen ist. Während in Augsburg die Gegenreformation voranschritt, nahm der Krieg durch das Eingreifen des schwedischen Königs Gustav II. Adolf jedoch eine entscheidende Wende – nach dem 1. großen Sieg der Protestanten unter der Führung des schwedischen Königs, Breitenfelde, begann der Triumphzug Gustav II. Adolfs und seiner Armee durch Deutschland. Am 24. April 1631 erfolgte die Einnahme Augsburgs, das zum Symbol des unterdrückten Protestantismus in Süddeutschland geworden war. Gustav II. Adolf wurde in der protestantischen Propaganda als „Löwe aus Mitternacht" betitelt sowie als Verfechter der wahren Lehre und als Befreier der Protestanten aus ihrer papistischen Knechtschaft inszeniert (Lang 1974, S. 76 und S. 80). Deutlich wird dieser Blickwinkel auf den schwedischen König auch auf dem vorliegenden Kupferstich: DGustav II. Adolf wird als schlagmächtiger Rittersmann dargestellt, der die beiden monströsen apokalyptischen Schreckenswesen niedergeschlagen hat – es handelt sich um Allegorien der katholischen Schreckensherrschaft, wie auf einem vorhergehenden Stich (Blattnr. NVI) deutlich wird - die Augsburg und Umgebung kurz zuvor noch fest in ihrem Griff gehabt hatten. Das Schild „Ablas Pro Peccatis" weist auf den Ablashandel der katholischen Kirche hin, der durch die Protestanten abgelehnt wurde. Das Bild wurde ursprünglich für ein Flugblatt konzipiert, das mit dem Titel „Die durch Gottes Gnad erledigte Stadt Augspurg" und einer erklärenden Bildunterschrift zum politischen Hintergrund versehen war. Es gehörte weiterhin wohl zu einer mehreren Blätter umfassenden Reihe (Blattnr. NVII). Das vorhergehende Blatt (Blattnr. NVI), das wir ebenfalls führen, hat die Unterdrückung der Augsburger Protestanten durch das Restitutionsedikt von 1629 zum Thema. Die auf dem vorliegenden Blatt niedergeschlagenen apokalyptischen Wesen, thronen hier noch herrschend über die Stadt.

Rebound half Leather with ribbed back and decorated with stamps, 4° (some pages are fixed at the lower margins because of wormholes, at some places affecting the text. William Pemble c.1592-1623, was a puritan divine, born as a son of a clergyman. His father was poor, and his education was provided for by John Barker. After his graduation he removed to Magdalen Hall, where he became reader and tutor. He proceeded M.A. on 9 June 1618, took orders, and was made divinity reader of Magdalen Hall, a post which he filled with great distinction, being an able exponent of Calvinism, and famous as a preacher. He was loyal to the Anglican church, though anxious that the terms of conformity should be made easier to his party. His aquirements in various branches of learning were very remarkable. It would seem that his labours and studies exhausted his strenght and shortened his days. Pemble's works were all posthumous, edited and published by his friends.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Philosophia Magnetica, in qua Magnetis Natura penitus explicatur, et Omnium quae hoc Lapide cernuntur, causae propriae afferuntur.

      - Engraved title & several engravings & numerous woodcuts in the text. 8 p.l., 412, [12] pp. Folio, cont. half-sheep & marbled boards (minor worming towards end), spine gilt, black leather lettering piece on spine. Ferrara: F. Succius, 1629. First edition, Jesuit issue, and a very fine copy. "Perhaps the most significant discovery of the century following Gilbert was that of electrical repulsion. This effect seems first to have been noticed incidentally by Cabeus, who, in his Philosophia Magnetica (1629), describes how filings attracted by excited amber sometimes recoiled to a distance of several inches after making contact."–Wolf, A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy, I, p. 303. Cabeo also relates his many experiments on the possibility of telegraphic communication by means of magnetized needles and gives the first picture of the sympathetic telegraph, an imaginary magnetic telegraph which sometimes appeared in early electrical literature, fancifully prefiguring the actual telegraph. It was supposed to operate by synchronous activation of two instruments with alphabetic dials whose needles had been magnetized by the same magnet. Cabeo (1586-1650), taught theology and mathematics in Parma for many years until he settled in Genoa where he taught mathematics. Handsome and large copy. There are three issues (no priority) of this book: the first issue has a royal coat-of-arms at the head of the title; the second issue has the coat-of-arms replaced by the Jesuit emblem; and the third was produced for export to Germany and has an added printed title with a Cologne imprint. ?

        Philosophia Magnetica, In Qua Magnetis Natura Penitus Explicatur. Et Omnium Quae Hoc Lapide cernuntur, causae propriae afferuntur .

      Johann Kinckius, Francesco Succi, Cologne and Ferrara: 1629 - 1 FIRST EDITION, COLOGNE ISSUE, OF THE FIRST WORK TO DISCUSS ELECTRICAL REPULSION, "PERHAPS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DISCOVERY OF THE CENTURY FOLLOWING GILBERT." – WOLF. THE FIRST WORK TO DISCUSS ELECTRICAL REPULSION. "On p. 194 of this famous work of the great Italian Jesuit will be found the first recognition of electrical repulsion. Gilbert’s discoveries and theories are freely discussed, the latter often adversely. Sympathetic telegraphy disproved (page 301); magnetic field mapped out by iron filings; also diagrams of the magnetic (lover’s) telegraph. Cabeo opposed the views of Copernicus on astronomy, as well as those of Gilbert on terrestrial magnetism. Copies of this first edition are much sought after." – Wheeler Gift. "An important work on the loadstone. A curious chapter.institutes a comparison between electrical and magnetical attraction.The PHILOSOPHIA MAGNETICA is the second Latin book published on electricity." – Mottelay. The Cologne issue adds a new typographic title-page and resets the dedication leaf (conjugate leaf) beginning "Ludovico XIII" [see Wellcome description]. The Papal arms which were at the top of the engraved title-page are replaced with the Jesuit emblem and the last line of the title beginning with "multa quoque dicuntur." has been added. It seems fairly obvious that Succi printed two variants of the book, one intended for the German trade; the paper of the book is distinctly a superior Italian printing on fine paper except for the added leaves which are on the typically browned paper of seventeenth century German books. Probably Kinkius printed these two leaves and sent them to Italy to be added to his issue of the book. This copy is in a typical Italian binding of the time which implies, in this cataloger’s mind, that Succi supplied the books with the changes in a finished form to his German counterpart.

      - Rare road map shows the routes for travellers and merchants from the north of Italy to Bohemia, the Netherlands, and east France, across Germany and Switzerland. It embraces the area of the Alps, north Italy, Tyrol, Bavaria and south Germany, and parts of Slovenia and Istria. The key in the upper margin lists the distances. The map was published by a Dutch cartographer Frederick de Wit (1629/1630 – 1706), but made on comission by merchants of Bregenz. The city, known as a major trading center since the times of antiquity, is shown here in the center of the map. The unusual orientation of the map is intentional in order to fit in all the routes between the north of Italy and the Netherlands. This map is very rare on the market. It was probably published seperately and sometimes included in composite atlases (atlas factices).

        Copia de la carta, que el obispo de Arequipa Fray Don Pedro de Perea ... escriuiò al rey nuestro Señor Don Felipe IV. deste nombre, prouando la certeza que tiene, el auer sido la Virgen concebida sin pecado original ...

      Impresso en la Ciudad de los Reyes [i.e., Lima]: Por Geronymo de Contreras Small 4to (20 cm; 7.75"). [24] ff. 259, [1] pp., [18] ff.. 1629 Perea (ca. 1567–1630), an Augustinian who served as bishop of Arequipa from 1617 until his death, was a defender of the native population of his bishopric against the abuses of local officials and encomienda holders. Here he is the defender of Mary and the Church doctrine that she had been conceived free of original sin. Further he writes, "y no poderse definir en la Iglesia la opinion contraria." He adds, "Van añadidos en esta copia, los motivos, y principios, assi de nuestra fè, como de teologia, y algunas consideraciones cerca de la fiesta, en que funda el obispo su opinion, para poder mas facilmente satisfacer a las objeciones que pusieren a este nuevo pensamiento, los poco afectos a esta fiesta, que no se pusieron en dicha carta, respeto de no cansar a su Magestad alargandola." Interestingly, the bishop had sent copies of the manuscript of this work to several prominent clerics in Spain to read and comment on, and one of them has provided an approbation to print it. Provenance: Marca de fuego on the upper edges of a Franciscan monastery. We know of no book or database for identifying which monastery used which ones, in Peru. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only two copies in U.S. libraries. Searches of COPAC, CCPB, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library locate no copies, and a search of KVK finds only one copy. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of ties, lacks front and rear free endpapers. Stains in some margins; some waterstaining in different margins in different places, not seriously into text. Unwormed and crisp. A rather good copy.

        Copia de la carta, que el obispo de Arequipa Fray Don Pedro de Perea ... escriuiò al rey nuestro Señor Don Felipe IV. deste nombre, prouando la certeza que tiene, el auer sido la Virgen concebida sin pecado original ...

      Impresso en la Ciudad de los Reyes [i.e., Lima]: Por Geronymo de Contreras Small 4to (20 cm; 7.75"). [24] ff. 259, [1] pp., [18] ff.. 1629 Perea (ca. 1567?-1630), an Augustinian who served as bishop of Arequipa from 1617 until his death, was a defender of the native population of his bishopric against the abuses of local officials and encomienda holders. Here he is the defender of Mary and the Church doctrine that she had been conceived free of original sin. Further he writes, "y no poderse definir en la Iglesia la opinion contraria." He adds, "Van añadidos en esta copia, los motivos, y principios, assi de nuestra fè, como de teologia, y algunas consideraciones cerca de la fiesta, en que funda el obispo su opinion, para poder mas facilmente satisfacer a las objeciones que pusieren a este nuevo pensamiento, los poco afectos a esta fiesta, que no se pusieron en dicha carta, respeto de no cansar a su Magestad alargandola." Interestingly, the bishop had sent copies of the manuscript of this work to several prominent clerics in Spain to read and comment on, and one of them has provided an approbation to print it. Provenance: Marca de fuego on the upper edges of a Franciscan monastery. We know of no book or database for identifying which monastery used which ones, in Peru. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only two copies in U.S. libraries. Searches of COPAC, CCPB, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library locate no copies, and a search of KVK finds only one copy. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of ties, lacks front and rear free endpapers. Stains in some margins; some waterstaining in different margins in different places, not seriously into text. Unwormed and crisp. A rather good copy.

        Quintus Horatius Flaccus. Accedunt nunc Danielis Heinsii De Satyra Horatiana libri duo, in quibus totum poëtae institutum & genius expenditur. Cum ejusdem in omnia poëtae animadversionibus, longe auctioribus.

      Leiden (Lugd. Batav.), Ex Officina Elzeviriana, 1629. - 12mo. 3 parts in 1: (XXXII),239,(1 blank); 296 (recte 286); 250,(4 blank) p. Vellum 13 cm The best and most complete Horace edition of Heinsius (Ref: Willems 314: 'cette édition d'Horace est jolie, et les exemplaires bien conservés se vendent assez cher'; Schweiger 2,403: 'Beste Ausgabe von Heinsius. Sehr sauber, in vollständigen Exx. höchst selten; cf. Dibdin 2,97/98; Berghman 2069: 'Édition jolie et recherchée'; Rahir 285; Copinger 2396; Graesse 3,353; Ebert 10179) (Details: 5 thongs laced through the joints. Engraved main title in front, and 2 separate titles; the first, which is bound after the 32 preliminary leaves, bears the date 1628, the second title, which is bound at the beginning of the last volume, is dated 1629. Both titles bear identical woodcut printer's marks, they depict an old man who stands in the shade of a vine-entwined elmtree, thus symbolising the symbiotic relationship between scholar and publisher. The motto is enigmatic: 'Non solus' (not alone), probably indicating the interdependence of publisher and scholar. Our copy matches the copy of Willems, except that the last blank leaf is lacking) (Condition: Cover slightly soiled and scratched; name on the upper margin of the title; bookplate on the front pastedown) (Note: The works of the Roman poet Quintus Horatius Flaccus, 65-8 B.C., have enjoyed a continuous presence in European culture. His memorable phrases made him the most quoted ancient author. Till well into the 20th century he stood central in school curricula. Earlier, in the Middle Ages, he was next to Vergil the most important school author. Horace is transmitted in around 300 medieval manuscripts. The Renaissance saw the beginning of a flood of editions. 'For Neo-latin poetry until modern times, and for all the vernacular literature of Europe from the 16th through the 18th centuries, Horace provided the dominant model both for private lyrics celebrating wine and love and for public lyrics celebrating affairs of state'. Young poets used Horace to learn the trade. 'Horace's elegant rationalism and moral wisdom, and also his disabused and tolerant tone, made his poems favorite reading during the Enlightenment'. (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 454/60) § The famous Dutch scholar and poet Daniel Heinsius, 1580-1655, was born in Ghent. He studied in Leyden and became there the favourite pupil of the genius J.J. Scaliger, whom he succeeded as professor of Greek after Scaliger's death in 1609. Sandys calls Heinsius' work on Greek authors, such as Hesiod and Aristotle better than his work on Latin authors. 'Nevertheless, his criticisms were highly praised by his contemporaries and by his immediate successors'. (Sandys, History of Classical scholarship, p. 314) Heinsius published his first edition of Horace, with his notes, in Leiden in 1612. It became a standard, and was influencial in Holland, France and Britain. This 3 volume set of 1629 is most sought after, because of the clear typography of the Elzevierbrothers, Heinsius useful 'animadversiones' and his masterpiece 'de satira Horatiana libri duo') (Provenance: The name of 'Rob Hesketh' on the title; a bookplate of 'Robert Hesketh esq.' & a small label of 'Rossal Hall Library' on the front pastedown. Both labels depict a corn sheath. This Robert Hesketh might be the Hesketh, 1789-1868, who was British consul in Rio de Janeiro, see the family site of J.J. Heath-Caldwell. The Hesketh family resided in Rossal Hall, in Lancashire) (Collation: *-2*8, A-P8 (leaf P8 blank); a-r8, s8 (minus s8 = blank); A-P8, Q8 (leaf Q6 & Q7 blank, minus Q8) (Photographs on request) 500 gr [Attributes: First Edition]

        BRAZIL: NOVUS BRASILIAE TYPUS.

      - Highly decorative originally coloured map shows west-up oriented Brazil with names of the coast towns. The in-set map shows Baya de todos os Sanctos (Salvador). The scenes in the interior of the land depict natives, including cannibals, and animals. The map was originally engraved by Jodocus Hondicus. In 1629 Hondius' plate was bought by Blaeu and revised for a new edition of his atlas. The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon Willem’s return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which led the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. The VOC would be one of Blaeu’s anchor clients and in 1633 he was appointed the Company’s official hydrographer. Blaeu’s sea atlas of European waters, Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608) was revolutionary, being the first broadly accurate maritime atlas. He went on to create magnificent wall maps, large-format charts and eventually terrestrial atlases, all decorated with the finest Dutch Baroque artistry. In particular, thePascaarte van alle de Zecusten van Europa (1621) helped to establish Blaeu’s supremacy in the highly competitive Dutch cartography market. Towards the end of his life, Willem Blaeu published the Atlas Novus (1635), a grand production that would be progressively expanded to include new volumes featuring all of the known world in unprecedented detail. The work featured numerous maps, exemplified by the present map, based on carefully selected sources and designed in the finest manner of the contemporary Dutch Baroque style. They became iconic works of cartography readily recognizable to generations of observers. The Atlas Novus and its successor publications were issued in 5 languages and became the most commercially successful works of their kind, setting a new standard for map publishing, emulated by cartographers across Europe. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) was the most successful mapmaker in the world in the mid-17th Century, during the apogee of Dutch cartography and the fortunes of the Dutch Republic. While he inherited a splendid enterprise from his father Willem, he managed to dramatically grow and expand the business to new heights. His greatest achievement was the world’s largest and most sumptuous atlas, the Atlas Maior, an 11-12 volume Baroque masterpiece (and successor to the Atlas Novus), in which editions of the present map appeared. The Blaeu firm flourished until its workshop was destroyed in a fire in 1672, ending almost three generations of hegemony over the map market. While many would try to emulate the Blaeu’s success, this was never accomplished, and the Blaeu name stands alone at the fore of the Golden Age of Dutch cartography.
