        American bison]. [Netherlands?, 18th century?]. Original woodblock (6.1 x 10.4 x 2.5 cm) illustrating an American bison, cut in endgrain boxwood, closely copied from that cut for Johannes de Laet, Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien, 2nd edition, Leiden, Bonaventura & Abraham Elzevier, 1630, p. 249.

      - For printed images of the 1630 woodcut: John Carter Brown Archive of Early American Images, no. 03472-6 (from 1630 ed.); for the 3 editions that use it: Alden & Landis 630/88, 633/65, 640/111; JCB II, pp. 229, 246, 283; Nissen ZBI 2359 (1630, 1633 & 1640 eds.). An original endgrain boxwood woodblock cut to illustrate an American bison (often called an American buffalo), closely copied from one cut for Johannes de Laet, Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien, 2nd edition, Leiden, Bonaventura & Abraham Elzevier, 1630, p. 249 (book VI, chapter 16). The "West Indies" was interpreted much more broadly than today, so the book covers much of continental America: its comment about the bison places it in "Quivira", probably in Kansas. The present block is a close copy, but is about 15% larger than the 1630 image. Allowing for paper shrinkage it must be about 12% larger than the block used in 1630. It is not cut on the plank but on the endgrain, and the density of the fine-grained wood (roughly estimated at 1.07 g/cm3) suggests it is boxwood. One can also see differences in tiny details, such as the hairs of the tail just below the point where it touches the horizon line.It is often supposed that illustration blocks made from endgrain boxwood were invented by Thomas Bewick in 1768, but many authors have noted that the technique probably predated him by many years, though his work made it famous. The block is in very good condition, with only a small break in the top border. It could be used for printing without difficulty. An endgrain boxwood woodblock, cut by hand to illustrate a bison, copied from one used by the Elzeviers in 1630.

        The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes…Very much Enlarged and Amended by Thomas Johnson

      Finely engraved title, woodcut head- & tailpieces, & 2776 woodcuts in the text. 20 p.l. (incl. initial blank & engraved title), 1630, [48] pp., one blank leaf. Thick folio (350 x 210 mm.), cont. calf (well-rebacked by Trevor Lloyd with the original spine laid-down, a few gouges carefully filled-in, corners bruised), panelled in gilt & blind, large gilt device in center of each cover, with initials "W H" on either side. London: A. Islip for J. Norton & R. Whitakers, 1633. First edition of Thomas Johnson's expanded and corrected version of Gerarde's Herball (1st ed.: 1597), the most famous of all English herbals. "Many errors made by Gerard in his text and in the identification of the illustrations were corrected by the apothecary and botanist Thomas Johnson (d. 1644), of London, who prepared an expanded edition of The Herball that first appeared in 1633…Johnson's painstaking revision of Gerard's herbal constituted in itself a valuable contribution to botany and to the art of the printed book. He added the descriptions of many new plants with illustrations, some of them borrowed from the botanical texts published by Christophe Plantin in Antwerp, in this way bringing the total number of engravings to 2,776. Any new passages were carefully marked with special symbols so that the reader could distinguish them from the original text… "The title-page of The Herball is particularly attractive. It was executed by John Payne (1607-1647), one of the most talented engravers of the period…In the upper part of Payne's work we see a luxuriant garden with the goddesses Ceres and Pomona on either side. Below them are the fathers of botany, Theophrastus and Dioscorides, while in the lower section two imposing vases filled with flowers surround a portrait of Gerard, who is shown facing in the opposite direction to that of the portrait by Rogers. The vase on the left is crowned with a bunch of bananas as a tribute to Johnson… "One of the most significant additions made by Johnson was his chapter on the 'Maracot' or 'Grandilla' as it was called at the time (actually the passion-flower). He includes a full page illustration (p. 1592) and refers the reader to Monardes for more information on this exotic species…In the long preface Johnson traces the history of the botanical sciences, analyzing the contributions of celebrated figures from the mythical King Solomon to William Turner…He closes with some critical remarks on John Gerard and the origins of his herbal."-Tomasi & Willis, An Oak Spring Herbaria, p. 84. An uncommonly nice and crisp copy. Bookplates of John Charles Bigham, Viscount Mersey, Bignor Park and Oliver Howard. ❧ Garrison-Morton 1820-(1st ed. of 1597)-"The most important edition of his book is the second, published by T. Johnson in 1633." Henrey, I, pp. 48-54-"Johnson produced an edition that was noteworthy for its many corrections, improvements, and additions" & no. 155. Hunt 223.

        Naaukeurig verhaal van de reis des bisschops van Beryte, uit Frankryk te lant en ter zee naar China: namelyk uit Marsilien over de Middelantsche zee naar Aleppo, en voort te lant deur Syrien, Arabien, Persiën, en verscheide Indiäansche lantschappen.Amsterdam, Abraham Wolfgang, 1669. 4to. With woodcut printer's device on title, and 8 half-page engraved illustrations in text. Modern half vellum.

      Scheepers I, 589; Tiele, Bibl. 178; WorldCat (8 copies); cf. Chadenat 532; Cordier, Bibl. Sinica 827. Rare popular account of an overland voyage from France to the Far East, ending in China, by Jacques de Bourges (ca. 1630-1714), a companion of the French titular bishop of Berytus (Beirut), Pierre Lambert de la Motte, on the first expedition to the Far East of the newly erected Société des Mission Etrangères. They left Marseille in June 1660, and travelled via Malta, through the Holy Land, Syria and other parts of the Middle East (Iran & Iraq) and India, to Siam (Thailand). Bourges gives extensive descriptions of the people, their customs and costumes, of the places he visits. The book ends with some notes on the bishop's voyage to China by sea and notes on the return voyage of Bourges to France to report in Rome on the conditions for missionising in Siam. Two years later, in 1666, he published the original edition of the present work, in French, based on the diary he had kept during his adventurous voyage. The present Dutch translation followed in 1669 and the prolific Dutch translator J.H. Glazemaker added descriptions of several cities and countries from his own hand.Some slight staining. Leaf G4 with top of corner cut off, leaf M1 heavily restored with text loss. Good copy of a travel account to the Far East.

        d'Y Stroom, en zeegezichten.Amsterdam, "1701" [= ca. 1751]. Foolscap oblong 1mo (33 x 42 cm). Engraved calligraphic title-page (16.5 x 23.8 cm), mezzotint portrait of Bakhuizen (18.5 x 14.4 cm), probably by Jacob Gole, with a 4-line Latin verse by Joan van Broekhuizen printed from a separate plate, and 10 etched plates, the first with a 6-line Dutch verse by Bakhuizen printed from a separate plate. The first plate measures 19.7 x 25.9 cm, the others ca. 17.5 x 23.5 cm. Loose sheets inserted in modern portfolio.

      De Groot & Vorstman 110-115; Hollstein I, pp. 54-57, 1-10; STCN (1 copy); WorldCat (3 copies). Very rare third state of a remarkable maritime print series by Ludolf Bakhuizen (1630-1708), one of the leading marine painters of the Dutch Golden Age. After the calligraphic title and the portrait of Bakhuizen follow an impressive personification of the city of Amsterdam, showing the Maid of Amsterdam riding in Neptune's triumphal chariot, with in the background the 64-gun man-of-war Amsterdam (built in 1688) and the shipyard and depot of the Dutch East India Company, and below, a 6-line verse celebrating the Dutch overseas trade. The other plates show coastal, harbour, river and sea views, including the IJ (Amsterdam), the Maas (Rotterdam) and a family picnicking on the shore of a river, with a wide variety of ships and boats, from large men-of-war to small rowboats, on calm seas and in violent storms.Bakhuizen was already a celebrated marine painter when, at age 71, he turned his hand to etching, producing the present evocative plates, the only prints he ever produced. Slightly foxed, a few light insignificant water stains, otherwise in very good condition. An important series of maritime views, of high artistic quality, here unbound and wholly untrimmed.

        [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].l 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.

        L’ebrezza di Sileno

      1630 - Xilografia, firmata in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, completa della linea marginale, strappo restaurato visibile al verso, tracce di piega di stampa orizzontale, per il verso in buono stato di conservazione. La composizione è opera del Rubens, del quale lo Jegher era abile allievo. A lui era infatti affidato il compito di tradurre in incisione su legno i grandi capolavori ad olio che l’artista fiammingo era deciso a pubblicare. Eseguite con forza e grande virtuosismo, le prove derivanti dagli intagli di Jegher donano l’illusione di un disegno a matita. L’incisione è una delle opere più piacevoli dello Jegher, forse eseguita su un modello più preciso, a disegno o a pittura, fornito da Rubens che fu anche editore della stampa. Woodcut, signed on lower right. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper, with complete marginal line, a repaired tear on verso and horizontal signs of print, otherwise in good condition. This composition has been conceived by Rubens, master of Jegher. As a very skilled pupil, he was always in charge of the realization of woodcuts depicting the oils masterpieces that the Flemish artist meant to publish. The woodcuts realized by Jegher, which bear a very strong and excellent stroke, give the illusion of a pencil drawing. This particular work is among the best ever realized by Jegher, maybe drawn after a precise model, either a painting or a drawing, provided by Rubens himself, who also published it. Probably after a design by Rubens and made under his supervision (described under Rooses 680, p.164). The satyr and the faun are after a painting by Rubens ('Drunken Bacchus') of which a copy by Rubens' circle is in the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Angers (Rooses 575). A preparatory drawn modello is in the Cabinet de dessins, Musée du Louvre, Paris. Le Blanc 14, Hollstein 16 II/III; Bodart, Rubens e l’incisione 156. Dimensioni 340 440mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Roma Antiqua Triumphatrix

      Roma 1630 - Pianta della Roma antica , ricostruita dal celebre incisore romano Giacomo Lauro. La carta è circondata da un testo inciso e da venti vignette che simboleggiano momenti significativi nella storia antica della città, mentre due piccole mappe raffigurano i sette colli sui quali sorge Roma. Incerta è la datazione della stessa, che il Frutaz colloca tra il 1612 e prima del 1650. Cartograficamente ispirata a quella realizzata da Etienne Duperac nel 1574, la pianta venne pubblicata da Giacomo de Rossi tra il 1649 e il 1677, anno in cui viene elencata nel celebre Indice della stamperia De Rossi. Incisione in rame, stampata su due fogli uniti origirariamente, colori coevi, lieve restauro con parziale perdita di testo in basso al centro, nel complesso in eccellente stato di conservazione. Map of ancient Rome, realized by the famous Roman engraver Giacomo Lauro. The map is surrounded by a text and twenty illustrations depicting the most relevant moments in the city life, while two small maps depict the seven hills on which Rome was founded. It is not possible to date the plan; Frutaz believes it is between 1612 and before 1650. From a cartographic point of view, the plan is close to Etienne Duperac’s, 1574; it was published by Giacomo de Rossi between 1649 and 1677, whenit was listed in the famous Indice della stamperia De Rossi. Copper engraving, printed on two sheets joined together, contemporary colour, light repair with the loss of part of the text on lower part, otherwise in excellent condition. A. P.

        Paesaggio marino

      1630 - Acquaforte, priva di firma. Magnifico esemplare, impresso su carta vergata coeva, sottili margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Nato il 18 marzo 1610 a Firenze, nel 1620 il giovane entra nella bottega dell’orafo Giovanni Battista Fossi, che lascia poco tempo dopo per l’atelier del cesellatore e medaglista Gasparo Mola. Pare che l’artista cominci a copiare le incisioni di Jacques Callot presso l’orafo Orazio Vanni, ed è proprio il maestro di Callot, Remigio Cantagallina, ad aiutare Della Bella agli esordi oltre a metterlo in contatto con Cesare Dandini, presso il quale l’artista fiorentino studia pittura a partire dal 1625. Dimensioni 198x102. Etching, without signature. Magnificent example printed on contemporary laid paper with thin margins, in excellent condition. Stefano Della Bella was born in Florence on March the 18, 1610; in 1620 he started working in the workshop of Giovanni Battista Fossi, a goldsmith. A few years later he went to work with Gasparo Mola, an engraver and medallist. It is said that the artist began to copy Jacques Callot’s engravings in Orazio Vanni’s workshop and it was Callot’s master himself, Remigio Cantagallina, to help Della Bella at the beginning, also introducing him to Cesare Dandini, with whom Della Bella studied painting from 1625.

        Tabula Islandiae Auctore Georgio Carolo Flandro

      Amsterdam 1630 - Questa bellissima carta dell’Islanda si basa sulle informazioni fornite dal navigatore olandese Joris Carolus intorno al 1620. La carta mostra in maniera evidente le affinità con due precedenti: quella del vescovo Gudbrandur, la cui linea costiera ricorda molto quella di Ortelius, e la scelta toponomastica presente nella mappa di Mercator. La topografia dell’isola è dominata da enormi montagne e vulcani, mentre la costa è fortemente caratterizzata dal labirinto dei fiordi. L’opera è riccamente decorata da cartigli contenenti il titolo e la scala di riferimento, rose dei venti, linee lossodromiche, un vascello in navigazione e mostri marini. Questa carta ha ispirato numerosi cartografi per oltre 130 anni. Edizione con testo latino. Dimensioni 490x375. Latin text edition. This handsome map of Iceland was based on information from a Dutch navigator named Joris Carolus in about 1620. The map shows the influence of both versions of bishop Gudbrandur's previous maps, a coastline resembling the Ortelius version, and Mercator's selection and spelling of many place names and has been itself hugely influential for over 130 years The island's topography is dominated by huge mountains and volcanoes and its shoreline a rugged labyrinth of fiords. It is richly embellished with title and distance scale cartouches, compass roses, rhumb lines, a sailing ship and two sea monsters. Dimensioni 490x375. Dimensioni

        Asia noviter delineate Auctore Guijelmo Blaeuw

      Amsterdam 1630 - Quarto ed ultimo stato di questa mappa "in questa forma la carta è inclusa in tutti gli atlanti dei Blaeu, a partire dal 1631" (MCN IV). Questo nostro esemplare è tratto dall’edizione Latina dell’Atlas Maior del 1662, con una rottura della lastra in basso al centro. Bella coloratura coeva e bordi decorative, in parte evidenziati con l’oro, ampi margini, una piccolo rottura della lastra, in basso al centro, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa splendida mappa, appartiene alla serie dei Quattro continenti edita da Blaeu. Le mappe sono una riduzione delle grandi carte murali del 1608. Bell’esemplare a colori di questa carta decorativa di Blaeu dell'Asia. Arrichita con 9 vedute di varie città all'interno del continente e fiancheggiato da 10 vignette che mostrano coppie di indigeni vestiti nei loro costumi tipici. Queste vignette si riscontrano spesso nelle mappe di Blaeu e di Speed con la differenza nel numero di persone mostrate per ogni immagine. Blaeu è noto per mostrare coppie di indigeni, mentre le vignette di Speed di solito mostrano una sola figura. Ci sono molti aspetti geografici e decorativi degno di nota in questa mappa: a nord l'esistenza di un supposto passaggio a nord-est si rivela come una massa di terra, Nova Zembla, mappato senza costa orientale e un passaggio chiaro è mostrato allo Stretto di Ania che si apre verso il Pacifico. La Corea è descritto come un'isola a ovest del Giappone che ha una forma anomala. Ci sono un certo numero di animali indigeni sparsi nella mappa, tra cui un elefante Gli oceani sono decorati con 5 navi a vela; un mostro marino nel Pacifico e un tritone che soffia dentro una conchiglia nell'Oceano Indiano. Testo latino al verso. Fourth and last state, "in this form the map is included in all atlases of the Blaeu family from 1631" (MCN IV); our copy from one Latin ed. of the Atlas Maior, 1662, with the known crack to plate at lower center. Contemporary colour to map and decorative borders, partly heightened with gold. Wide margined copy, small split at lower centrefold, generally in very good condition. This map belongs to Blaeu's set of maps of the four continents. The maps are reductions of Blaeu's 1608 wall maps. This is a great full colored example of Blaeu's decorative map of Asia. The ornamented with 9 views of various cities within the continent and flanked by 10 vignettes showing pairs of indigenous people dressed in their native costumes. Such vignettes are often seen in maps by Blaeu and Speed with the difference between the two being the number of people shown per image. Blaeu is known to show pairs of natives while Speed's vignettes feature only one individual caption. There are many geographical and decorative aspects of this map worth noting. In the north the long-believed existence of the Northeast Passage is revealed as the land mass Nova Zembla is mapped with no east coast and a clear passage is shown to exist to the Anian Straight that opens to the Pacific. Korea is featured as an island just west of the abnormally shaped Japan. There are a number of indigenous animals scattered throughout the map including a well-placed elephant just north of the source of the Ganges and south of the Great Wall of China. The oceans are accented with 5 sailing ships a sea monster in the Pacific Schilder/Stopp, MCN VI, 21.2 u.
