        La Pyrotechnie…ou sont représentés les plus rares & plus appreuvez Secrets des Machines & des Feux artificiels. Propres pour assiéger battre surprendre & deffendre toutes places

      Finely engraved title & 133 engraved text illus. (many full-page). 4 p.l., 264 pp. 4to, cont. vellum over boards (a little warped), remains of green silk ties. Pont-à-Mousson: I. & G. Bernard, 1630. Second edition, enlarged with additional illustrations, of an important and early book on military technology and pyrotechnics. The first edition appeared in 1620 under the title Recueil de plusieurs Machines militaires. For that edition, Appier collaborated with the famous mathematician and surgeon, François Thybourel (fl. 1620), but after a dispute with his co-author about the priority of their names on the title-page, Appier presented our edition as entirely his own work. "The Pyrotechnie is an entirely new work. The plates are bold and instructive."-Ferguson, Books of Secrets, II, 3rd Supp., p. 45. The text is presented in the form of a dialogue between a general and a captain, in which the captain offers important advice stemming from practical experience. Appier instructs the reader on the transportation of ordnance, accurate aim, aquatic fireworks (see p. 253), the creation of smokeless fire, and ruses de guerre. "The beautiful engravings by Appier show the 'state of the art' of defensive and offensive machines of war, including rockets, mortars, and numerous explosive devices, as well as a wide variety of recreational fireworks."-Neville, I, p. 40. The images, designed by the author, also depict the construction of many kinds of bridges including pontoon and drawbridges, gun turrets, platforms and ladders for sieges, machines devised to destroy castle defenses, the process of moving a cannon uphill, and types of ammunition and their optimal effectiveness. Appier (1596-1647), the son of an engineer who was in charge of fortifying Nancy, was a printer, engraver, and pyrotechnician. He established a printing press in Pont-à-Mousson which served the local university. Fine copy with a natural paper flaw on A2 touching a few letters of text, repaired at a very early date. Unidentified 18th-century engraved armorial bookplate on front paste-down endpaper. Early ownership inscription on title: "Ex bibliotheca Gravenegg." Joachim von Gravenegg (1594-1671), was prince-abbot of the Benedictine abbey at Fulda, to which he donated his library. ❧ Brunet I, 358. Cockle 938. N.B.G., Vol. 23, cols. 315-17. Philip, A Bibliography of Firework Books, pp. 11-12-"His name alone appears in the much finer edition of 1630…Appier's influence on subsequent pyrotechnic works is immense.".

        Nova Hispania, Nova Galicia, Guatimala

      Published in the Nieuwe wereldt ofte Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien. Gerritsz was a Dutch cartographer, apprenticed to Blaeu and chosen over him after starting his own business; he gained the appointment of cartographer to the Dutch East -and West- India Company, his are in many cases foundation maps for several regions of the Americas, later used as prototypes by Blaeu & Hondius. Most of his work exists only in manuscript and these maps often are the only Gerritsz maps available to the collector today. Laet (1593 - 1649) was a Dutch geographer and businessman, his overseas trading eventually led him to become a founding director of the Dutch West India Company, a position that enabled him to gain access to updated sources of information, both from the Company's archives and seamen. The map includes Mexico through Costa Rica with considerable detail. The large strapwork cartouche incorporates the title and distance scales and the map is further decorated with a lovely compass rose.

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.

      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.

        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).

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.

        [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.

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.

        Lucca

      Amsterdam 1630 - Pianta della città tratta dal "Theatrum praecipuarum urbium" celebre teatro delle città del Janssonius, sullo stile del "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" di Braun & Hogenberg. L'opera, pubblicata nel 1657, contiene 500 tavole raffiguranti città di ogni parte del mondo. Contrariamente al lavoro degli acerrimi rivali Blaeu, Janssonius si servì per la realizzazione dell'opera delle lastre di precedenti cartografi ed editori. In particolare nel 1653 egli acquisto da Abraham Hogenberg le lastre del "Civitates orbis Terrarum" che incorporò nella sua opera, ristampandole. Per le piante delle città olandesi, ordinò delle nuove lastre basate sull'atalnte che Johannes Blaeu diede alla luce nel 1649. Per molte delle opere contenute nel 5° volume, quello dedicato all'Italia e denominato "Theatrum celebriorum urbium Italiae.", si servì delle lastre realizzate da Jodocus Hondius per l'opera "Italia Hodierna." del 1627. A differenza di queste ultime il formato è in-folio, con testo sia nel recto che nel verso. Incisioni in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rarissima. Taken from "Theatrum celebrorium" by Janssonius. Very rare. Dimensioni 510 410mm

        Gerusalemme)

      1630 - Bulino, XVII sec, privo di dati editoriali. Esemplare ante litteram, impresso su due fogli di carta vergata coeva, uniti al centro. In ottimo stato di conservazione. L’incisione raffigura all’interno di una ricca cornice architettonica, una pianta dell’antica città fortificata di Gerusalemme, delineata con pochi ed essenziali edifici: la spianata per il Tempio, l’Anfiteatro, il palazzo di Salomone, il palazzo di Erode. All’esterno, si distingue il Golgota con le croci. In alto, al centro di un grande cerchio, è raffigurato Gesù sulla croce e, ai due lati, in piedi, la Vergine e la Maddalena. Dall’alto Dio Padre, con il tipico attributo dell’alone triangolare simbolo della Trinità, e della colomba simbolo dello Spirito Santo, vigila tenendo le mani aperte. Nella cornice architettonica compaiono diverse figure di santi, tra i quali in basso, accanto ai cartigli quadrati lasciati vuoti, S. Bonaventura (sx) e S. Antonio da Padova (dx); mentre in alto, in cima alla cornice, si riconoscono S. Bernardino da Siena a sinistra, e S. Francesco d’Assisi a destra. Opera rarissima, sconoscuta ai repertori. Engraving, circa 1630, without printing details. Proof before letters, printed on two sheets of contemporary laid paper, joined at the center. In excellent condition. A map of the walled city of Jerusalem showing the Temple, amphitheatre, palace of Solomon, the palace of Herod. Outside walls, in Golgotha with crosses. In the top center, in a large circle, is depicted Jesus on the cross, and on the two sides, standing the Virgin and Mary Magdalene. God the Father, with the typical attribute of the halo triangular symbol of the Trinity, and the dove symbol of the Holy Spirit, supervises holding hands open. In the architectural frame appear different figures of saints, including, next to the square cartouches left empty, St. Bonaventure (left) and St. Anthony of Padua (dx); while above, on top of the frame, we recognize St. Bernardine of Siena left, and St. Francis of Assisi on the right.
