        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.

Rebound Leather with ribbed back and richly decorated with stamps, 4° (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.

        The Order of My Lord Mayor, The Aldermen and the Sheriffes, for their meetings

      R. Young, Printer to the Hon: City, London 1629 - Sm. 8vo. pp. (iv) 32 (ii) without first blank. Mostly large black letter, small woodcut arms of the City of London at head of t.p., couple of decorative headpieces. Light age browning or yellowing, upper margin cut a bit short, generally a good copy in modern vellum. An extremely rare publication of the orders and regulations governing meetings of the high officers of the City of the London on special, public and ceremonial occasions. Most of these were annual events fixed by the liturgical calendar though some, such as a coronation, occurred only very occasionally. The orders do not regulate the conduction of business, or the administration of the meetings, so much as to provide who shall be where and when, fulfilling what role and especially wearing what. It is a sort of secular ‘ceremonialum’ for what was rapidly becoming the grandest and richest corporate government in the world and which often provided a splendid show for the local populace. This was not a mere matter of ‘panem et circenses’ however but had a serious underlying social and political purpose. It is easy to forget today just how significant the symbolism of clothes and gestures was in the C17th (viz Malvolio) and how vitally important were the rules of precedence and procedure. This little work seems to have been designed principally for participants in these ceremonies, by the study of which deeply embarrassing (and perhaps worse) solecisms could be avoided. It opens with a paginated table of the principal ceremonies and closes with a list of the City corporations. Copies would have been discarded when the office holder retired or the regulations changed, and were doubtless few to begin with, almost none now survive. The earliest recorded edition of this sort was printed in 1568 and is known by a single copy at the Huntington; the Guildhall Library has the only recorded copy of an edition of 1604 and the Bodleian the unique 1610 as well as the only surviving quire of "c.1625?". Then follows this title of which two copies are now known (apart from the present), at the BL. and Guildhall respectively; a different issue, partly reset, survives uniquely at Harvard.

Unwissenheit, Argwohn, Verleumdung, Neid, Schadenfreude und falsche Anklage sind die Beisitzer, während die Wahrheit mit abgewandtem Gesicht flieht: "Der Angeklagte findet kein Gehör, und wird das Opfer blinder Verfolgung, die nichts beweist doch alles beschuldigt."- Die Allegorie bezieht sich wohl auf die Verfolgung des in der Überschrift genannten Münchner Jesuiten Hieronymus Drexel von 1629 und ist wahrscheinlich aus einem aktuellen politischen Anlaß 1818 als Flugblatt erschienen..

Lacks 1, a blank. 13-1/4' x 8-1/4" "The Council of Trent, the turning-point in the Counter-Reformation, created the modern Roman Catholic church. It represents not merely one of the decisive moments of the sixteenth century, but a moment whose influence is still felt all over Europe." The Council was convened in 1545 by Emperor Charles V in an effort to reconcile religious strife with Protestantism, however, dominated by the papacy, at its conclusion in 1563, the Council placed in the hands of the papacy an instrument which determined the evolution of the Roman Church for the next three centuries, culminating in the 1877 pronouncement of the dogma of papal infallibility.

It represents not merely one of the decisive moments of the sixteenth century, but a moment whose influence is still felt all over Europe." The Council was convened in 1545 by Emperor Charles V in an effort to reconcile religious strife with Protestantism, however, dominated by the papacy, at its conclusion in 1563, the Council placed in the hands of the papacy an instrument which determined the evolution of the Roman Church for the next three centuries, culminating in the 1877 pronouncement of the dogma of papal infallibility. Sarpi, a "devoted and honoured servant of the Venetian Republic"; recognized the full force of the acts of Council, which in turn motivated him to issue this work, his "masterpiece"; it later formed the nucleus of opposition to the papacy of Pius IV.

        The Holy Bible containing the Old testament and the new: newly translated out of the original tongues.....

      Herbert #424, 1629 Cambridge First Folio, 12"x 8.5" x 2.75",fine binding, Very Good,  Cambridge had begun to print the Bible in the Geneva Version as early as the year 1588 under the charter granted to the University by King Henry VIII in 1534. That charter was the center of many violent attacks, but under it Cambridge printing became so firmly established as to withstand the jealousy of the medieval London stationers and the dangers inseparable from the changing political and religious views of successive sovereigns. The issue of the Authorized Version of the Holy Bible in 1611 was not immediately followed by the printing of this famous Version at Cambridge. For awhile Barker, the printer to the King, was responsible for every copy printed, and his first folio edition of 1611 was looked upon as the only available standard of the text as it came from the Translators. But this first folio of 1611 was known to contain many serious misprints, some of which were corrected in the second folio edition of the same year; and in this second folio a number of fresh errors occurred. It became quite obvious as time went on that if the production of Bibles were left to a printer uncontrolled by any learned body, however excellent such printer might be from the purely technical point of view, the risk of degrading the work of the Translators would be very great. At Cambridge, steps were taken to collate the various issues and, with the aid of scholars of the University, some of whom had probably taken part in the actual work of the 1611 translation, to set up a new and authoritative standard of the Authorized Version of the Bible. The charter of Henry VIII was ratified by King Charles the First in 1628, and in the following year the first Authorized Version Bible printed by the University Press was issued by Thomas and John Buck. The issue of this famous edition was resisted by the King's printer; but it received a grateful welcome from those to whom accuracy was of more importance than commercial considerations. Not only was this edition welcomed for the purity of its text, but its appearance caused something of a price war.  In 1630 Cambridge printed a handsome quarto in black letter and a quarto in roman letter, both of which had a ready sale. These were followed in 1637 by a smaller octavo issue which also found considerable favour and in 1638 by a new folio edition. In the 1638 folio, revision of the text begun in that of 1629 was carried still further, the task being equally shared between the two sets of editors. What the one left undone, the other in good measure supplied by inserting words or clauses especially in the Old Testament, overlooked by the editors of 1611, by amending manifest oversights, and by rendering the italic notation at once more self- consistent and more agreeable to the design of the original Translators. The influence of the 1638 folio on subsequent editions was undoubtedly very great and it remained the standard of the Authorized Version until the publication of the Cambridge edition of 1762.

        [VIRGINITY OF WOMEN]. Sibylla Tryg Andriana, sive De virginitate Virginum statu et iure tractatus novus et iucundus, in quo ex iure naturali, divino, canonico et civili. [BOUND WITH]: Linea amoris, sive Commentarius in versiculum gl. Visus, Colloquium, Convictus, Oscula, Factum. In l. 23 ff. Ad l. Iuliam de adulteriis. [BOUND WITH]: De Annulo triplici, Usitato, Sponsalitio, & Signatorio

      Frankfurt: Heirs of Jakob Fischer, 1629. VERY GOOD. 18mo. 281 pp., 3 ff. (p. 262-263 misnumbered "264-265"), the first page of "Descriptio auctorum," has a small hole in the out margin; 244 pp., 3 ff. Uniform toning thoughout. Bound in contemporary vellum, a little soiled, yapp edges. IN EXCELLENT UNSOPHISTICATED CONDITION An extraordinary early 17th-century book on the VIRGINITY OF WOMEN according to canonical and civil law, as well as natural and "divine" law, secular and ecclesiastical writers, with interesting discursions into sexual love and marriage. The book is a useful introduction to early modern legal reasoning on sexual and reproductive issues. Kornmann (ca.1580-1620), a Frankfurt lawyer, here offers his counsel and a plethora of curious, sacred and profane information on the legal rights and moral duties of women, and the rules and conduct of women in matters of love and sex based upon classical writings, theology, superstition, magic, popular folklore, and his own unusual, rather modern opinions. Thus while we are presented with positive views of women in the arts, diplomacy, and military service, it is a remarkable fact that Kornmann suggests that a tree will die if a virgin plucks the first fruit from it. We also learn about the role of succubi and incubi; the best colors for women to wear; and what parts of the human body are ruled by the zodiac sign Virgo (the virgin). The two tracts herein were first published in 1610 and were immediately successful, with six editions in the 17th-century alone. All early editions, including the present, are scarce. A fascinating, compelling volume of considerable interest to legal historians. This edition combines Kornmann's "De virginitatis iure" with a second work entitled "Linea Amoris" which contains, in addition to statements of the Fathers of the Church, bawdy stories, with quotes from the major occult and demonology: Aeneas Sylvius, Cornelius Agrippa, Mengus, Andreas J. Leonard Vair, the "Malleus Maleficarum," Nicolas Remy, Paracelsus, Sleidan, Sprenger, Polydore Virgil, Wecker, etc. REFERENCES: VD17 1:014113N. Gay-Lemonnyer 1113-1114. Caillet 5829. Wellcome I, 3582. Dorbon, 2400 (for the 1765 edition only).

        A short and sweete exposition upon the first nine chapters of Zachary

      London: Printed by R. Young for John Bartlet, at the signe of the gilt Cup in Cheape-side, 1629. FIRST EDITION. Very attractive recent half calf antique, marbled boards, five raised bands on spine, compartments gilt, red morocco label in the second. EXCELLENT COPY. 8vo. [8], 165 pp. including full-page woodcut plate bound as frontispiece (intended to be placed between pp. 50/51). COLLATION: A-Y4, without the final blank leaf, otherwise COMPLETE. Provenance: blindstamps of the now-defunct Theological Institute Connecticut (from thence to Case Memorial Library, with inkstamp) First Edition of this highly curious Elizabethan theological work, illustrated with a strange and wonderful woodcut of the "Vision of the Golden Candlestick" (Zech. 4). Rare on the market: this is the only copy known to us in private ownership; no copy has appear at auction in at least 35 years. This interpretation of Zechariah (I-IX) is perhaps Pemble's final work: "He died in the flower of his age, as he was making his lectures on the prophecy of Zechariah (finishing but nine chapters of fourteen)... of a burning fever" (SOURCE: Fuller, History of the Worthies of England, vol. 3, p. 258). Published posthumously, as were all Pemble's works, through the offices of former tutor Richard Capel, who edited this work and signed the preface. "He appears to have been a good Hebrew scholar, and employs his learning very advantageously, particularly in expounding the book of Zechariah" (SOURCE: Orme, Bibliotheca Biblica, p. 345). "Pemble's work attracted attention long after his death, helping to influence Richard Baxter against Arminianism and shape the high-Calvinist tenets of the eighteenth-century Baptists John Gill and John Brine. Baxter and Thomas Blake each cited Pemble in their dispute over the covenants and the role of scripture as an instrument of the Spirit" (SOURCE: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).
