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.

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.

Around 1570, Theodorus de Bry, a Protestant, fled religious persecution south to Strasbourg, along the west bank of the Rhine. In 1577, he moved to Antwerp in the Duchy of Brabant, which was part of the Spanish Netherlands or Southern Netherlands and Low Countries of that time (16th Century), where he further developed and used his skills as a copper engraver.

         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 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."

"Godwin's recognition of the need for a thorough revision of the national history, based on original sources, turned out to be prophetic.

         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]

         La Première et seconde savoisienne : où se voit comme les Ducs de Savoie ont usurpé plusieurs Estats apartenans aux Rois de France : comme les Rois de France en ont eu plusieurs comme cruels ennemis, voire mesme tous ceux qui ont esté les plus proches dans leur alliance : comme l'Eglise en a receu de grandes offenses ; les feintes propositions de paix qui se faisoient à Paris, Lion, Suze, Pignerol, & ailleurs, pour tromper le Roy, faire périr ses armées,& assubjettir l'Italie, sans moyen de s'y pouvoir oposer ; & par conséquent la nécessité de cette dernière guerre. Plus, une description-sommaire de tous les Princes de cette maison, iusques à l'an 1630.

      Grenoble, P. Marnioles 1630 - 2 parties en un vol. in-8, [4]-XCII pp. ; [4]-323 pp., demi-basane fauve à coins, dos lisse orné de filets dorés, pièce de titre, tranches mouchetées de rouge (rel. de la fin du XVIIIe). Des pages roussies ou un peu salies, mais bon exemplaire. Recueil composite formé de deux pièces parfaitement distinctes : 1. La réimpression de la Savoisienne d'Antoine Arnauld (1560-1619), le patriarche de la fameuse tribu Arnauld et avocat au Parlement de Paris, d'abord publiée sans lieu ni date autour de 1600, pour appuyer la validité des opérations de Henri IV contre la Savoie. Ce n'était pas la première fois que le souverain se servait de la plume acérée d'Arnauld pour sa propagande politique. 2. Un pamphlet nouveau, attribué à Jean (ou Bernard) de Rechignevoisin, et manifestement copié du premier, qui paraît ici pour la première fois. Dans les deux cas, il s'agit d'une critique de la politique des ducs de Savoie, qui a toujours fait la bascule entre la France et les Habsbourg, ce qui, pour les publicistes français, ne peut être que de la mauvaise fois. A noter que l'on trouve dans le pamphlet d'Arnauld les premiers arguments d'un détachement de la Savoie de la domination piémontaise et son rattachement au royaume de France.
