Gerrae profanorum refutatae, cum revelata origine vera et admiranda superstitionum; et virga critica castigata habentur aliquot loca ambigua primaria celeberrimorum grammaticorum.Leipzig, Elias Fiebig; printed in Zagan (now in Poland) by Johann Ockel, 1677. Small 4to (19.5 x 16 cm).

      ADB XXVI, pp. 520-529, no. 33; Caillet 8951; Faber du Faur 764; VD17 23:741244G. First and only edition of a curious collection of material on the history of superstition by the prolific and versatile, but later unjustly overlooked author, Johann Praetorius, the partly Latinized name of Hans Schultze (1630-1680). "Praetorius had an open eye and a sharp ear for all wonder stories, witch tales, and accounts of ghosts and sorcery current among the people. He indefatigably collected all information on remarkable subjects and happenings, and was fond of popular gossip, even of the uncouth type ... [The Philologemata] deals with the superstitious belief that a finger [thumb] cut off from the hand of a hanged thief serves as a good luck charm, and with vagabonds, diving rods, etc." (Faber du Faur). The thumbs-up woodcut on the title-page therefore has a more sinister meaning than one might first think.Title-page with subtly restored fore-edge margin, some usual minor browning and pages 6-7 printed unsharp, otherwise in very good condition.

        Cuba - Bay of Matanzas] Abbildung welcher Gestalt die Spanischen Silberflotta von dem Hollaendischen General Peter Peters Hayn an der Insel Cuba in der Baya Matanca Anno 1628 erobert worden.

      - [Hanau, David Aubry for Mattheus Merian, 1630]. Map (35.2 x 41.9 cm). With a view of the Bay of Matanzas (Cuba), a map of Cuba (South up), and the portraits of "Pieter Pieters Hayn" [= Piet Hein) and Hendrick Cornelisz Lonq [= Lonck].= This work gives a pictorial account of the capturing of "La Flota" by the fleet of the Dutch admiral Piet Hein in 1628. "La Flota" was the yearly convoy bringing silver, pearls and other valuables, including gold, gems, spices, sugar, tobacco, lumber, etc. from the Spanish colonies in the Americas and the West Indies to Spain. La Flota operated between 1573 and 1790. Piet Hein was the first to successfully attack and defeat the Spanish fleet, a major naval achievement in itself. Even the famous Sir Francis Drake never succeeded, despite many attempts. Hein's men did not kill anyone and Hein allowed the Spanish crew members to march to Havana, even supplying them with food. Piet Hein brought the entire cargo home to the Dutch Republic, where the total value of the captured goods (mainly silver) was estimated to be around 10 million guilders (currently about 120 million euro). This was a huge moral boost to the Netherlands, then in its 60th year of the Eighty Years' War with Spain (ended in 1648) and renewed interest in trading in South America and the West Indies. Hein's achievement is celebrated even today, especially during soccer football matches where a song - written in 1844 by J. P. Heije with a melody by J. J. Viotta - commemorating the event is sung by the Dutch. The present edition is the one printed for Merian (and also used for de Bry's "Grand Voyages", published by Merian) after J. C. Visscher. A faint vertical fold in the middle and at the right (identical to the copy in the John Carter Brown Library, Brown University, Providence, RI), otherwise a very good clean copy with wide margins.

        Decisiones [Grationopolitanae]

      excudebat Stephanus Gamonetus, 1630. Pp. (4) 595 (37). Unito a: PAPA GUIDO.  Commentaria in statutum Delphinale. Pp. 74 (6). Due parti in un volume di cm. 33,5. Marchio tipografico al frontespizio bicromo, bellissimi finalini xilografici. Graziosa legatura settecentesca in mezza pelle; dorso a 5 nervi con titoli e ricchi fregi dorati agli scomparti. Tagli rossi. Antiche firme di possesso al frontespizio. Minime tracce d'uso alla legatura, fioriture sparse dovute alla qualità della carta e macchiette, qualche lieve alone, peraltro esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Guy Pape (1402 ca.-1475), celebre giureconsulto francese, ottenne la laurea a Pavia nel 1430; ritornò di seguito in Francia, a Lione e poi a Grenoble, divenendo membro del consiglio del Delfinato. Le Decisiones Grationopolitanae si riferiscono appunto a quest'esperienza professionale: ebbero enorme circolazione e divennero ben presto fonte di primaria per la tradizione giuspolitica cinque-seicentesca.

        Cefalogia fisonomica. Divisa in dieci deche, dove conforme a documenti d'Aristotile, e d'altri filosofi naturali, con brevi discorsi e diligenti osservazioni si esaminano le fisionomie di cento teste humane che intagliate si vedono in quest'opera

      presso gli heredi di Evangelista Dozza e Compagni. Cm. 22, pp. (20) 628 (20). Con splendido frontespizio architettonico inciso da Girolamo David, ritratto dell"Autore a piena pagina, 100 ill. xilografiche raffiguranti altrettanti volti. Numerosi capilettera e graziosi finalini xil. Legatura del tempo in piena pergamena rigida con titoli ms. al dorso; tagli spruzzati. Trascurabili e macchiette sparse, sporadiche bruniture, buchetto all"angolo alto esterno bianco (lontano dal testo) delle ultime carte. Esemplare ben conservato. Cornelio Ghirardelli (15??-1637), francescano nativo di Bologna, fu studioso di medicina astrologica e pronostici, materie alle quali dedicò numerosi studi tra il 1621 e il 1634. Così la voce G. in D.B.I. (volume 53, a cura di Alessandro Ottaviani) a proposito di quest"opera: "Nella nutrita serie di opere del G., senza dubbio il trattato più importante e impegnativo è la Cefalogia fisonomica. Come lo stesso G. racconta, il progetto iniziale prevedeva che l"opera fosse destinata esclusivamente alla circolazione interna all'Accademia dei Vespertini. Dopo varie pressioni, fu presa però la decisione di darla alle stampe e uscì a Bologna nel 1630 e con l"imprimatur di Girolamo Onofrio, professore all"Università di Bologna dal 1613 al 1639 e consultor Inquisitionis al servizio dell'inquisitore Paolo de Garrexio. La presenza di G. Onofrio era opportuna garanzia, in un momento di crescente diffidenza da parte delle autorità religiose verso le arti divinatorie che, come è noto, sfocerà nella condanna ufficiale con il motu proprio di Urbano VIII del 1631. D'altro canto, come è stato rilevato da G. Aquilecchia, il G. si muoveva in tale ambito con ben dosata cautela riguardo agli aspetti più rischiosi della tradizione fisiognomica, dichiarandosi per esempio del tutto contrario a dare fondamento filosofico all'arte metoposcopica, ovvero il trarre presagi dai segni del viso, guardata con particolare sospetto dal S. Uffizio. L"opera è un corposo volume in quarto, di circa seicento pagine, suddiviso in dieci deche. Ogni deca, a sua volta divisa in dieci discorsi, è dedicata a un carattere fisiognomonico della testa (nell'ordine: capelli, fronte, sopracciglia, occhi, naso, bocca, mento, orecchie, faccia, capo). Ogni discorso rispetta una precisa struttura: dapprima il ritratto della testa seguito da un sonetto, poi il Discorso del G. medesimo, il Parere de" scrittori, infine l"Additione a cura di un membro dell'Accademia dei Vespertini, identificato con lo pseudonimo di Inquieto, presentato come "singolarissimo amico". L'ultimo discorso di ogni deca è dedicato a un tipo fisiognomonico femminile". Prima edizione. Cfr. Iccu; Piantanida, 2189; Riccardi I, 38; Krivatsy 4706; Cicognara, 2440..

In 1626 he became a citizen of Frankfurt and could henceforth work as an independent publisher. He is the father of Maria Sibylla Merian, who later published her the famous and wellknown studies of flowers, insects and butterflies.

Ad 1: First printing from the Danckerts plates of a series of ornamental designs for altars and chimney-pieces, richly and beautifully executed with decorative carvings, sculpture and paintings in the influential styles popular in France under Louis XIII. In 1630 Jean Barbet, draughtsman and engraver, signed a two-year contract with the publisher Melchior Tavernier to make the drawings for the present series. Tavernier published it at Paris in 1633, engraved by Abraham Bosse. Cornelis Danckerts copied the series in mirror image.Ad 2: Paris edition, with imprint "Rousel exc.", of a beautiful series of large ornamental cartouches, originally designed by Agostino Mitelli, Italian architect and engraver. The present Paris edition has 16 plates, all containing cartouches. Ad 3: Two series of very refined and beautiful cartouches, but instead of blank cartouches as in ad 2, these all surround beautifully engraved scenes. They are printed from the plates of the first edition in their second state. The first series puts more emphasis on people and their activities within the landscape, and the second on the often mountainous landscapes themselves. Some of the cartouches are fantastic and bizarre, with sometimes grotesque real and imaginary creatures, such as the elephant heads in plate 1 of the first series, their trunks curling around to form the lower corners of the cartouche. Daniel Rabel, French artist and engraver, also published model series of costumes, birds and insects. His present cartouches are fine examples of style and fashion in Louis XIII's France. From the library of Lunsingh Scheurleer. In very good condition, with only an occasional minor smudge or marginal stain, and with ample margins. The boards are somewhat bowed and the vellum slightly stained, but the binding is generally also very good.

        Regno di Napoli

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1630 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 54 x 55,5; - description: Map shows south Italy with 12 beautyfull heraldics in the border.; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years.

        Opus de emendatione temporum.Including: Computus Arabicus ecclesiae Antiochenae.Leiden, Franciscus Raphelengius (Officina Plantiniana), 1598. Folio (36 x 24 cm). With woodcut printer’s device on title-page. Set in roman and italic types with long passages in Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, Samaritan and Ethiopic, shorter passages in Syriac, and zodiac signs, the Arabic, Samaritan and Ethiopic specially cut for use in the present book. Vellum (ca. 1630?).

      - Adams S568; Fuks, Hebrew typography 15; Lane, Arabic type specimen of Franciscus Raphelengius, item 26 & p. xxv; Typ. Bat. 4476; cf. PMM 98 (1583 ed.); for the Arabic, Samaritan and Ethiopic types: Vervliet EXO 1, 2 & 3. Third and definitive edition, greatly revised and expanded by the author and printed by Plantin's son-in-law using a wide variety of non-Latin types, of a thorough scholarly study of classical, biblical and "oriental" chronology, by the leading linguist and linguistic scholar of his generation ("the greatest scholar of his age" PMM). Three of the non-Latin types (nashk Arabic, majuscule Samaritan and Ethiopic) were cut especially for this work. Scaliger and Raphelengius were far ahead of their time in viewing Arabic as an important field of study in its own right, and they showed sympathy for Arabic culture. Like their predecessors, they used Arabic for biblical exegesis, but they also studied the Quran, medical, mathematical and astronomical texts and other works originally written in Arabic. In the present work, Scaliger studied and compared the calendars and historical chronology of the Greeks, Romans, Persians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Jews and others, attempting to link them so that their dates could be related to those of the European calendar. Scaliger's work in this area "towers above that of his contemporaries" (PMM) and served as an essential key to modern historical scholarship. This was the first work ever set in Raphelengius's pioneering Arabic type, which set the stage for the Arabic types of Thomas Erpenius and others in the Netherlands and abroad: "it served as the foundation stone for a revolution in Arabic scholarship" (Lane). With a piece cut out of the title-page. It has been patched with a paper slip, and with further slips in the endpapers. With water stains in about a dozen leaves and occasional slightly browned patches, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. The binding is slightly dirty, the spine-title faded and the headbands have lost much of their green thread.

He is renowned to the present day as the cartographer who created a world map based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. In his own day he was the world's most famous geographer but in addition he had interests in theology, philosophy, history, mathematics and magnetism as well as being an accomplished engraver, calligrapher and maker of globes and scientific instruments. He wrote few books but much of his knowledge is to be found in the copious legends on his wall maps and the prefaces that he composed for his atlas ,the first in which the term "atlas" appears and the sections within it.

        Barbaria, Tunis capta et in christianorum poestatem redata a Carol, quinto anno 1535 at postea magna cum eorundem.

      Artist: Hondius Hendrik ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1630 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Centerfold mounted; - size (in cm): 35 x 46,5; - description: Map shows on three insert maps, north Africa, bay of Tunis andthe delta of the river nil; - vita of the artist: "Jodocus Hondius (1563 ?1612) was a Dutch engraver, and cartographer. He is best known for his early maps of the New World and Europe, for re-establishing the reputation of the work of Gerard Mercator, and for his portraits of Francis Drake. He helped establish Amsterdam as the center of cartography in Europe in the 17th century. He was born in Wakken and grew up in Ghent. In his early years he established himself as an engraver, instrument maker and globe maker. In 1584 he moved to London to escape religious difficulties in Flanders.While in England, Hondius was instrumental in publicizing the work of Francis Drake, who had made a circumnavigation of the world in the late 1570s. In particular, in 1589 Hondius produced a now famous map of the bay of New Albion, where Drake briefly established a settlement on the west coast of North America. Hondius' map was based on journal and eyewitness accounts of the trip and has long fueled speculation about the precise location of Drake's landing, which has not yet been firmly established by historians. Hondius is also thought to be the artist of several well-known portraits of Drake that are now in the National Portrait Gallery in London.In 1593 he moved to Amsterdam, where he remained until the end of his life. In co-operation with the Amsterdam publisher Cornelis Claesz. in 1604 he purchased the plates of Gerard Mercator's Atlas from Mercator's grandson. Mercator's work had languished in comparison to the rival Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius. Hondius republished Mercator's work with 36 additional maps, including several which he himself had produced. Despite the addition of his own contributions, Hondius gave Mercator full credit as the author of the work, listing himself as the publisher. Hondius' new edition of Mercator's work was a great success, selling out after a year. Hondius later published a second edition, as well as a pocket version Atlas Minor. The maps have since become known as the "Mercator/Hondius series".In the French edition of the Atlas Minor we find one of the first instances of a thematic map using map symbols. This is a map entitled Designatio orbis christiani (1607) showing the dispersion of major religions.[1]Between 1605 and 1610 he was employed by John Speed to engrave the plates for Speed's The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine.Hondius died, aged 48, in Amsterdam. After his death, his publishing work in Amsterdam was continued by his widow, two sons, Jodocus II and Henricus, and son-in-law Johannes Janssonius, whose name appears on the Atlas as co-publisher after 1633.[2] Eventually, starting with the first 1606 edition in Latin, about 50 editions of the Atlas were released in the main European languages. In the Islamic world, the atlas was partially translated by the Turkish scholar Katip Çelebi. The series is sometimes called the "Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius" series because of Janssonius's later contributions." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

        America Noviter Delineata Hondius 1630 Cloppenburg van der Keere miniature map

      1630 - America noviter delineata (North America / New World / Exploration / etc.) Issued 1630 [1661], Amsterdam by Cloppenburg, Joh. & Jansson after Hondius for Gerard Mercator. Likely engraved by P. van der Keere (see Burden). This 1661 re-issue of the 1630 Cloppenburg engraved plate was issued by Jansson for an edition of Cluverius Geographius, (perhaps undocumented).*Charming and scarce antique early to mid 17th century miniature map of the Americas. Reverse blank. Title within simple scroll cartouche lower left. Tall mast sailing ships, sea monsters, fictitious features like bogus islands of Friesland & Brasil in North Atlantic ocean and the mythical Lake Parime, rumored location of El Dorado, fabled city of Gold. Outline of both countries inaccurate and distorted. North America juts endlessly towards Alaska, but with no indication of it. The entire interior of America is essentially blank and unknown, aside from the east coast, which is also shown distorted. Incorrect mountain ranges across the mid-west, Great Lakes shown totally wrong, joined, etc. Paper evenly moderately age toned to fine mellow patina. Overall the map is clean, well preserved and very attractive. Original fold line as issued. Sheet measures c. 11" x 8". Engraved area measures c. 10" x 7".*Burden, Mapping of North America, 224. calling it "uncommon". Noting several issuances, but not this 1661 Cluverius by Jansson. Koeman, Atlantees Neerlandici, v. II, p. 544-8, Me-205-08. [noting variant printings, but not this particular one]. Tooley's Dictionary of Mamakers, v. 1.[R12050]
