        Istoria o brevissima relatione della distruttione dell'Indie Occidentali di monsig. reverendiss. don Bartolomeo dalle Case, o Casaus, Sivigliano dell'Ordine de' Predicatori; et vescovo di Chiapa città regale nell'Indie. Conforme al suo vero originale

      presso Marco Ginammi, 1630. In - 16° (19,7 x 14 cm), pp. (16), 150, (2), legatura coeva in pergamena semirigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso (un po' sbiaditi). Normali segni d'uso (piccole mancanze) agli angoli esterni del piatto anteriore. Testo disposto su due colonne per pagina, che ospitano una l'originale spagnolo, l'altra la traduzione italiana. Nel bordo inferiore del frontespizio, sigla di appartenenza "R. M." datata 1653. Piccolo, leggero alone d'umido, che non interessa il testo, nella parte inferiore del margine esterno dei fogli ospitanti le prime 16 pagine non numerate, delle dimensioni massime di 4 cm di altezza per 1,1 cm di larghezza, più evidente nei primi fogli interessati, più contenuto e meno marcato nei restanti (si veda foto del frontespizio). Alcuni fascicoli presentano arrossature alle pagine, dovute al tipo di carta. Nel margine esterno del foglio con le pagine 149 - 150, mancanza, che non riguarda il testo, ben reintegrata con carta giapponese. Nel margine inferiore delle pagine dalla 47 all'ultima, all'altezza dell'angolo inferiore interno, piccolo lavoro di tarlo, che non riguarda il testo: da pagina 65 in poi, dove, pur essendo sempre contenuto, si mostrava più evidente rispetto alle pagine precedenti (in particolare tra pagina 65 e pagina 90), è stato sistemato da intervento di restauro eseguito reintegrando le parti erose con carta giapponese. Piccolo foro di tarlo nell'angolo superiore interno delle pagine dell'ultimo fascicolo, lontano dal testo, anche in questo caso restaurato. Alcune "maniculae" disegnate a penna nel margine di qualche pagina, un paio di brevissime notazioni a penna ad integrazione del testo, sia le prime, che le seconde, di mano coeva. Nella parte superiore della controguardia posteriore, nota a penna, di mano coeva, su cinque righe, di argomento storico. Le ultime due pagine ospitano un elenco di titoli impressi dall'editore Ginammi. Si tratta della seconda edizione italiana, dopo la prima del 1626, stampata sempre a Venezia dal medesimo editore, della celebre opera del domenicano spagnolo sulle condizioni di vita degli indigeni nelle terre del Nuovo Mondo governate dagli spagnoli e sulle atrocità commesse da questi ultimi sulle popolazioni locali. La princeps dello scritto era stata pubblicata a Siviglia nel 1552. Bartolomé de Las Casas nacque a Siviglia nel 1484. Recatosi per la prima volta in America, sull'isola di Hispaniola (Santo Domingo), nel 1502, al seguito del governatore Nicolás de Ovando, a partire dal 1505, gli fu assegnato in encomienda un certo numero di indios che lavoravano per lui nelle miniere e nelle terre, facendo prosperare i suoi affari. Ordinato sacerdote nel 1510, visse nelle isole di Hispaniola e di Cuba come clérigo e encomendero fino al 1513 - 14, data della sua prima conversione alla causa indigena, quando, suscitando grande stupore nei connazionali, rinunciò alle sue proprietà e liberò gli indigeni per dedicarsi alla difesa dei loro diritti. Inizialmente il suo impegno, che lo porterà, nel corso degli anni, a tornare più volte in Spagna e a percorrere migliaia di leghe nel Nuovo Mondo, fu volto al tentativo di riformare la legislazione riguardante le Indie e alla messa in atto di esperimenti di un tipo di colonizzazione alternativa non violenta, intendimenti e prove che non ebbero però grande successo. Frustrato da queste esperienze, nel 1522 decise di entrare nell'Ordine domenicano (la cosiddetta seconda conversione), ritirandosi nel convento dell'isola di Hispaniola per un periodo di riflessione che durò una decina d'anni, periodo durante il quale iniziò a scrivere alcune delle sue opere principali, in cui offriva una puntuale descrizione delle qualità fisiche, morali e intellettuali degli indios, finalizzata alla difesa dell'umanità degli abitanti del Nuovo Mondo, contro la tesi della loro irrazionalità e bestialità avanzata da altri suoi contemporanei, e in cui riportava dettagliati resoconti delle vessazioni e delle atrocità compiute dai colonizzatori. Tornò quindi ai suoi viaggi attraverso l'America centrale e alle traversate oceaniche, compiute per svolgere opera di persuasione presso la Corte e il Consiglio delle Indie, opera che sortì, almeno in parte, gli effetti da lui sperati, in quanto le sue testimonianze e le sue posizioni esercitarono una notevole influenza nella promulgazione delle Leyes Nuevas del 1542, che limitavano fortemente l'encomienda coloniale. Nel 1543 fu nominato dall'Imperatore Carlo V vescovo della diocesi del Chiapas, nella penisola dello Yucatan, dove si recò nel 1546. Tuttavia, l'ostilità dei suoi connazionali, ai quali negava l'assoluzione finché non avessero liberato gli indios a loro assoggettati, lo obbligò a ritirarsi dalla diocesi e a ritornare definitivamente in Spagna nel 1547. Nel 1550, partecipò alla famosa Giunta di Valladolid, consiglio di giuristi e teologi convocato da Carlo V con lo scopo di discutere la natura giuridica e spirituale delle popolazioni native dell'America centrale e meridionale, sottomesse al potere spagnolo. In essa, le sue teorie, che affermavano la naturale bontà degli indios e si esprimevano a favore della loro pacifica conversione, si contrapposero a quelle di Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda, rappresentante del pensiero colonialista, che sostenevano che gli indigeni fossero servi per natura, che la guerra mossa contro di loro fosse conveniente e giusta a causa della gravità morale dei delitti di idolatria, dei peccati contro natura e dei sacrifici umani da loro commessi e che, infine, l'assoggettamento avrebbe favorito la loro conversione alla fede. Visto che, dalla disputa, non uscì nessun vincitore, questa venne nuovamente convocata l'anno seguente, ma la commissione di esperti non prese alcuna decisione ed entrambi i contendenti si considerarono vincitori. È da sottolineare, però, che l'imperatore era propenso ad accettare le sue tesi, soprattutto per limitare il potere degli encomenderos. Tra il 1552 e il 1553, a Siviglia, presso i tipografi Sebastian Trugillo e Jacome Cromberger, diede alle stampe otto dei suoi trattati. Negli ultimi anni della sua vita si oppose alla richiesta da parte dei conquistadores di ottenere dal re Filippo II la perpetuità dell'encomienda. In seguito alla proibizione del re di trattare pubblicamente le questioni relative alle Indie, dal 1556 non diede più alle stampe i suoi numerosi manoscritti. Morì a Madrid nel 1566. Titolo completo: Istoria o brevissima relatione della distruttione dell'Indie Occidentali di monsig. reverendiss. don Bartolomeo dalle Case, o Casaus, Sivigliano dell'Ordine de' Predicatori; et vescovo di Chiapa città regale nell'Indie. Conforme al suo vero originale spagnuolo, gia stampato in Siviglia. Tradotta in italiano dall'eccell. sig. Giacomo Castellani già sotto nome di Francesco Bersabita. Dedicata all'Amicitia.

      1630. Tre serie d'incisioni in un volume in - folio, legatura 800esca in pelle. Appartenuto a Gilbert R. Redgrave (1844?1941) grande designer e architetto inglese, figlio del pittore Richard. Tra I progettisti della Royal Albert Hall, fu inoltre presidente della Bibliographical Society of London ed in collaborazione con Alfred W. Pollard curò il celebre STCdella British Library. I) 32 tavole num. I - XXXII, compreso il frontespizio con ritratto, il privilegio di Pio IV e la dedica al Card. Farnese. Prima edizione del Vignola, terza tiratura, "the most comprehensive, systematic and authoritative exposition of one - point and two - point perspective construction methods published in the sixteenth century". vCorrisponde all'esemplare descritto da FOWLER 351 ("The work described heremay therefore be the third issue with the addition of the 5 engraved plates of doorways and one mantelpiece. The plates in this copy are particularly fine impressions". Anche qui infatti seguono 5 tavole anonime e non numerate di porte progettate per il Card. Farnese a Caprarola ed al Palazzo della Cancelleria, ed una tavola di un camino. II) Porte d'architettura rustica d'Oratio Perucci pittore et archit.o reggiano date in luce dal dot.r Francesco suo figl.o .., 1634, 21 ff., compresi una dedica a stampa ed il frontespizio firmato "Oratius Perutius inv., Franciscus Curtis fe., Vittorio Serena form. 1634" con dedica a Gasparo Gherardini marchese di Scurano (Parma). Le 19 tavole riportano il monogramma OP dell'autore e la firma del Coriolano in varie abbreviazioni. CICOGNARA p. 608: "Sono porte 18 in altrettante tavole che sono sullo stile di quelle del Vignola. Quest'opera non è a molti nota quantunque di bello stile, e sebbene le stampe siano state pulitamente intagliate dal Coriolano". III) Libro d'Antonio Labacco appartenente a L'Architetture nel qual si figurano alcune notabili antiquità di Roma. Per l'autore, 1559 (ma XVII sec.), 35 fogli incisi ed il n. 32 a stampa, i ff. 7 - 8, 9 - 10, 23 - 24 costituiscono tavole su doppio foglio, i 29 - 31 una tav. su triplo f. Di quest'opera apparsa nel 1552, secondo Mortimer esistono "numerous variants in copies, issues, and editions noted by Ashby and in the Fowler catalogue". Celebre studio, comprendente le ricostruzione in pianta e sezione dei più importanti monumenti romani, come il molo di Adriano, il tempio e la colonna nel foro Traiano, i templi presso il teatro Marcello. Vasari lodò Labacco come "molto intendente nelle cose d'architettura, come ne dimostra il suo libro stampato de le cose di Roma, che è bellissimo". Il frontespizio di quest'ultima parte è rifilato ed applicato carta antica, per il resto assai marginoso. Importante esemplare, oggetto di studio di uno dei grandi dell'architettura britannica del XIX secolo.

        Corallorum historia, qua mirabilis eorum ortus, locus natalis, varia genera, praeparationes chymicae, quàmplurimae, viresque eximiae proponuntur.

      Frankfurt a. M., Lucas Jennis, 1630. - 8vo. (16), 174 pp. (lacking final blank, as common). With printer's woodcut device on t. p. and large (nearly full-page) engraving of a precious coral on the final page of the preliminaries. Late 19th century half calf with marbled covers and gilt title to spine. Edges sprinkled in red. Extremely rare first edition of the first monograph ever published on corals. Gans's study covers the natural history of coral as well as its chemical and medical applications. At the beginning of the book, Gans provides a list of authors whose work he has used as sources. Among these, the great Arab polymath Ibn Sina (Avicenna) is easily one of the most frequently and extensively quoted authorities: Gans relies on him for his account of the corals' prevalence, and in particular for his discussion of their chemical properties and medical uses (especially as a stomachic). But Gans has also received the work of the Middle Eastern physician Yuhanna ibn Sarabiyun (Serapio), as well as that of the then-recent Italian botanist Prosper Alpini (1553-1617), who had spent three years in Egypt studying botany and hygiene as a companion to the Venetian Consul Giorgio Emi. Alpini was a well-chosen authority, as he is counted among the first physician-botanists of the 16th century to examine plants outside the context of their therapeutic uses. - Among the eleven chapters in Gans's work, Duveen lists no less than six that are of of chemical interest. "The most famous description of the medical application of corals has been given by Gans and it also included an extensive selection of recipes with extracts from corals, mainly focusing on the red coral. The 'spiritu vitrioli antepileptico' formulation prepared by him is used even today" (Muller et al., "Traditional and Modern Biomedical Prospecting: Part I - the History" in Ev. Comp. & Alt. Med. 1.1 [2004]). - From the library of the British-born U.S. literary scholar, Rossell Hope Robbins (1912-90), with his ownership stamped on front pastedown. Robbins, a collector mainly of works on Middle English and medieval studies, is best remembered as the author of the classic "Encyclopedia of Witchcraft and Demonology". Paper slightly browned but a very good copy. No copy in international auction or trade records since 1950. VD 17, 12:000513B. Duveen 235. Brüning 1519. Krivatsy 4540. Wellcome 2676. Ferchl 171. Neu (Chemical, medical and pharmaceutical books) 1568. Waring (Bibliotheca therapeutica) 386 (the first book listed on the subject). OCLC 14320766. Cf.

        Illustrium virorum elogia iconibus exornata

      Apud Donatum Pasquardum et socium 1630 8vo (cm. 20), 8 cc.nn., 369 pp. (mal numerate 373), 25 cc.nn. con un’ antiporta raffigurante un tempietto greco tra le rovine e 47 ritratti calcografici a piena pagina attribuiti a Jerome David. Numerosi stemmi e medaglioni xilografici n.t. Legatura ‘800 in mz. pelle marrone scuro con fili, fregi e titolo oro al ds. Piatti in tela anch’essi in marrone scuro. Tagli colorati a spruzzo. Antiche scritte al frontespizio e un timbretto nobiliare sul retro del medesimo. Buoni interni anche se con alcuni aloni, qualche pagina ingiallita e una scritta al margine laterale dell’ottava carta non numerata. Edizione originale. L’opera, dedicata a Io.Battista Agucchia, Nunzio Apostolico a Venezia, è composta da 74 biografie, in massima parte corredate da ritratto e talora da stemmi di famiglia, simboli, monete ed epitaffi degli uomini illustri (Cardinali, Filosofi, Giuristi, Matematici, Medici, Commediografi, ecc.) nati a Padova o comunque legati alla città per avervi studiato, insegnato, essere stati membri dell’Accademia, o per altri motivi. Completano le biografie ben sette Indici dedicati ai nomi propri, ai luoghi, alle monete, ai simboli, agli stemmi delle famiglie, agli epitaffi ed alle iscrizioni. L’A. scrisse in seguito un altro libro sui letterati e sapienti, edito da diverso stampatore, con ritratti ad opera di altri intagliatori, pubblicato nel 1644. Questo, come il nostro, è comunque autonomo e a sé stante (dello stesso nostro avviso Vinciana, anche se consiglia per motivi di organicità di tenere insieme i due libri; di contrario avviso invece Brunet. Cicognara possedeva solo il libro edito del 1644 e non menziona neppure il nostro. Cfr. inoltre Praz, p. 515.

        Serensissimus Princeps ac Dominus, Dominus Ernestus dux Saxoniae, Juliae, Cliviae et Montium, Landgravius Thuringiae, Marchio Misniae,

      Artist: Sandrart Jacob von -1708 Nuremberg; Issued in: Nuremberg; date: c 1675 1630 - Artist: Sandrart Jacob, von 1630 -1708 Nuremberg; Issued in: Nuremberg; date: c. 1675; - Condition: Tear on the right side perfectly restored; Ernest I, called Ernest the Pious (Altenburg, 25 December 1601 Ð Schloss Friedenstein, Gotha, 26 March 1675), was a duke of Saxe-Gotha and Saxe-Altenburg. The duchies were later merged into Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg.He was the ninth but sixth surviving son of John II, Duke of Saxe-Weimar, and Dorothea Maria of Anhalt. His mother was a granddaughter of Christoph, Duke of WŸrttemberg, and great-granddaughter of Ulrich, Duke of WŸrttemberg. Left an orphan early in life (his father died in 1605 and his mother in 1617), he was brought up in a strict manner, and was gifted and precocious but not physically strong. He soon showed traits of the piety of the time. As ruler, by his character and governmental ability as well as by personal attention to matters of state, he introduced a golden age for his subjects after the ravages of the Thirty Years' War. By wise economy, which did not exclude fitting generosity or display on proper occasions, he freed his land from debt, left at his death a considerable sum in the treasury, and reduced taxation. Public security and an incorruptible and efficient judiciary received much of his attention, and his regulations served as models for other states. His laws were not conceived in the spirit of modern ideas about individual liberty they forbade secret betrothals, tried to regulate dress, and extended even to the stable, kitchen, and cellar. Nevertheless his regulations promoted agriculture, commerce, learning, and art. His palace of Friedenstein in Gotha was rebuilt, and its collections owe their origin to Ernest the library became one of the largest in Germany. Churches were built and by his Schulmethodus of 1642 Ernest became the father of the present grammar-school. It was a popular saying that his peasants were better instructed than the townsmen and nobles elsewhere, and at his death, it was said, no one in his land was unable to read and write. He made the gymnasium in Gotha a model school which attracted pupils not only from all German lands, but from Sweden, Russia, Poland, and Hungary. In like manner he fostered the University of Jena, increasing its funds and regulating its studies, with too much emphasis on the religious side. Jacob von Sandrart (3 May 1630, Frankfurt am Main - 15 August 1708, Nuremberg) was a German engraver primarily active in Nuremberg. Sandrart was a very prolific artist over 400 engravings from his hand are extant. He was best known as a portraitist of prominent contemporary citizens of Nuremberg, as an engraver of maps, and as an illustrator of the literary works of Nuremberg writers, especially Sigmund von Birken. Today Sandrart is best remembered as the founder and first director of the Nuremberg Academy of Fine Arts (est. 1662).

        The martyrdom of Paolo Michi, Giovanni Goto, and Giacomo Ghisai.

      1630]. 1630 - Folio (445 x 340 mm), with engraved inscription below image; minimally trimmed at foot (just touching text); very lightly browned and a few spots; minute wormtrack restored below image; a good impression; the paper with fleur-de-lys watermark. Rome, Valérien Regnart, n.d. [ca A very rare large single sheet engraving depicting the crucifixion of three Japanese converts. Following the command in 1588 for all Jesuits to leave Japan, Christian persecution was renewed in 1593, with a number of Japanese receiving the crown of martyrdom.  In February 1597, Toyotomi Hideyoshi (?Emperor Taicosama?) had twenty-six Christians executed at Nagasaki as an example to Japanese who wanted to convert to Christianity.  Known as the ?Twenty-six Martyrs of Japan?, they included five European Franciscan Missionaries, one Mexican missionary, three Japanese Jesuits (Paolo Michi, a noble, and eminent preacher, and the recent converts, Giovanni Ghoto, and Giacomo Ghisai), and seventeen Japanese laymen.   ?As soon as all the crosses were planted, the executioners lifted up their lances, and at a signal given, all pierced the martyrs almost in the same instant; upon which they expired and went to receive the reward for their sufferings.  Their blood and garments were procured by Christians, and miracles were wrought by them? (Alban Butler, The Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs, and Other Principal Saints p. 201).   ?In the late 16th century, the Baroque style was starting to emerge.  This period is characterized by open compositions with elements, often times placed diagonally, that encourage the illusion of movement.  A loose and free technique was consistently used among artists.  Artists also tried to create a sense of unity among the different elements or figures ? Also during this time the Counter Reformation was influencing the subject matter and its representations in art.  It encouraged a renewal in the interest in martyrs.  In the depiction of these martyrs, the Catholic Church encouraged the images to be visually and emotionally appealing so as to encourage piety and faith in heretics as well as to inspire present worshipers.  With these representations of horrifying scenes of martyrdom, the Church wanted to reach the largest audience possible in order to regain Catholic worshipers.  As a result, this time period is marked by the patronage of the Catholic Church and Catholic nobility in Rome? (Shedding Light on Caravaggio, online).   Giuseppe Cesari (1568 ? 1640) was an Italian Mannerist painter, also named ?Il Giuseppino? and called Cavaliere d?Arpino, because he was created Cavaliere di Cristo by Pope Clement VIII.  He was much patronized in Rome by both Clement and Sixtus V.  He was the chief of the studio in which Caravaggio trained upon the younger painter?s arrival in Rome.   ?[Cesari] began his career as a workshop assistant for the decoration of the Vatican Loggia, directed by Niccolo Circignani.  The artists he encountered during this experience (Circignani himself, Cristoforo Roncalli, and Giovanni Battista Ricci) had a great influence in his work.  In 1589?91 Arpino executed extensive decorations in the Certosa of San Martino, Naples, where, as at Rome, he was assisted by his brother Bernadino.  He was greatly in demand in Rome as a fresco painter, having impressed Pope Clement VIII with his facility of execution.  But his frescoes in the Palazzo dei Conservatori, begun in 1596, were never finished.  Perhaps his best work is the four incidents from the life of St. John the Baptist in the Church of San Giovanni in Laterano, Rome.  During his long career, he also created the designs for the mosaics of the cupola of St. Peter?s; the frescoes of the Cappella Paolina of the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore; and the fine murals in the Olgiati chapel in the Church of Santa Prassede? (Encyclopedia Britannica).   His most notable pupil was Caravaggio, who worked at Cesari?s studio as a painter of flowers and fruit in c. 1593-94.  Caravaggio?s subli [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Wereldkaart - Mercator, Hondius, Janssonius, 1641.

      EEN VAN DE MOOISTE WERELDKAARTEN UIT HET BEGIN VAN DE 17DE-EEUW"Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Tabula auct. Iud. Hondio.'Kopergravure vervaardigd in 1630, hier in de 2de staat (van vier) uitgegeven door Johannes Janssonius in 1641. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 54,5 x 38 cm.Dit is een van de meest bekende en mooiste wereldkaarten uit de eerste helft van de 17de-eeuw. Het was het antwoord van uitgeverij Hondius-Janssonius op de wereldkaart van concurrent Blaeu. Henricus Hondius en zijn schoonzoon Johannes Janssonius brachten in 1630 een heruitgave op de markt van de door (vader) Jodocus Hondius samengestelde atlas met kaarten van Gerard Mercator. Na het overlijden van Henricus Hondius gaat Janssonius door met de uitgeverij en zet zijn naam op koperplaat van de wereldkaart.De portretten in de hoeken van de gravure zijn (van linksboven, met de klok mee) Julius Caesar, Claudius Ptolemaeus (Grieks geograaf en astroloog, vermaard om zijn in de 15de-eeuw gekopieerde kaarten), Jodocus Hondius (cartograaf en de oprichter van de uitgeverij) en Gerardus Mercator ('de vader van de moderne geografie" en leermeester van Jodocus Hondius) .Om het oostelijk- en westelijk halfrond heen zien we de elementen: de god Apollo in zijn wagen met Phoenix en vuurspuwende draken verbeelden vuur (Ignis), de godin Diana met vogels en de wind als verbeelding van de lucht (Aer), de godin Abundantia met dieren en de hoorn des overvloeds vertegenwoordigen de aarde (Terra), en Aquarius met waterkan, schelpen en vissen het water (Aqua). Midden bovenaan zien we een hemelglobe en de zon, onderaan de maan en een mythologische Europa geschenken krijgen van Azië, Amerika en Afrika.De kaart is de eerste atlaskaart waarop Californië als een eiland is afgebeeld en kent een van de vroegste weergaves van de noordwest kust van Australië.Prijs: € 14.500,- (incl. lijst) .

        MANUSCRIPT: Fair copy of the dedication to Architecturae Militaris Novae & Aucta, dated 1630 and signed 'M. Adamus Freitag'

      1630 - Single sheet (380x300mm) folded once; writing on three sides. This is the dedication to the second book of Freitag's treatise, constituting pp. 68–73 of the 1631 Leiden/Elzevier edition. Titled, as in the relevant section of that edition, 'Architecturae militaris novae & auctae.', followed by a precis in fine italic script and, overleaf, the dedication itself, in a different hand. Freitag's book is one of the most important in the history of fortifications, helping to spread the Dutch system far and wide, and going through eight editions in French and German alone. Freitag himself was a polymath who, in addition to his work in practical mathematics, also studied medicine and published in astronomy and astrology. The present manuscript would appear to be a fair copy, either for the printer or the patron, or perhaps a duplicate to be kept back. The best evidence for the early date and association directly to Freitag comes from the paper itself, which bears an early Angoumois watermark (Fleur-de-lys on a shield, with crown, marked 'WR'). This French motif was used in the early years of Angoumois paper-making by the Dutch, before they developed their own designs, so an early date would seem likely. We have not been able to locate a sample of Freitag's handwriting, yet in any case it is likely that the manuscript was written by a scribe. Later editions of the 'Architectura' are still obtainable, but the 1631 first is scarce; we have found no record of manuscript material on the market. Condition is very good: first page somewhat darkened; edges worn, with a very small hole (5mm) worn through at the fold; a couple of flattened creases (but see photographs for a good impression of the overall state).

      Cordier, Indosinica, col. 886; STCN (3 copies pt. 1 & 4 copies pt. 2); Tiele, Bibl. 462 & 1061. Probably the sixth edition of the account of the three voyages made by Jan Jansz. Struys (1630-1694) through Asia in 1647-1673. Struys's first journey in 1647 was made as a sail maker on board an East India merchant and brought him to Madagascar, Siam, Formosa (Taiwan) and Japan. On his second journey in 1655 he served aboard the Venetian fleet in a campaign against the Turks, was captured and escaped. His third and most interesting journey brought him to Russia, where in 1668 he set up shop as a master sail maker. A large chapter of the book is devoted to descriptions of Moscow and rare descriptions of daily life in Russia. Subsequently, Struys made a long journey from Novgorod in the north to Astrakhan in the south. There he witnessed the Cossack rebellion under the leadership of Stepan Razin and he even met the Cossack leader. By way of Persia, which he also described extensively, Struys travelled further to the Dutch East Indies.Added to Struys's journeys (as in many editions) is the horrible account of the shipwreck of the Dutch ship Terschelling on the coast of Bengal in 1661. After many adventures, the surviving sailors were enlisted in the Mughal army in which they served for a period of 15 months. Upon his return home, one of the sailors published this travel account, based on his own experience in India as a soldier in the Mughal army.With an inscription by "Sieburgh" to the German explorer Robert Schlagintweit (1833-1885), dated 1859, on the second front endpaper and Schlagintweit's embossed library stamp on the title page. Two numbers written on the front paste-down and some soiling in the margins. Binding rubbed; a good, nearly untrimmed copy.

        The herball, or, General historie of plantes.

      London: Printed by Adam Islip, Joice Norton & Richard Whitakers Large folio (35.5 cm; 14"). [19 of 20] ff., 1630 [i.e., 1634] pp., [24 of 25] ff. (without the initial and final blank leaves).. 1636 When reading Gerard we are wandering in the peace of an Elizabethan garden, with a companion who has => a story for every flower and is full of wise philosophies" (Woodward, p. viii). And indeed, Gerard's herbal is written in "glorious Elizabethan prose, [with] the folk-lore steeping its pages'" (Woodward, p. vii), these factors going a long way towards making it one of the best-known and -loved of the early English herbals. The "herbs" surveyed include plants aquatic and terrestrial, New World and Old, embracing shrubs, plants, and trees, each with a description of its structure and appearance, where it is found (and how it got there), when it is sown and reaped or flowers, its name or names (often with engrossingly exotic etymologies), its "temperature," and its "vertues" or uses (often curious). The story is famous: John Norton, Queen's printer, wished to bring out an English language version of Dodoen's Pemptades of 1583 and hired a certain "Dr. Priest" to do so, but the translator died with the work only partially done. A copy of the manuscript translation made its way into John Gerard's hands and he seized the opportunity, reorganizing the contents, obscuring the previous translator's contribution, incorporating aspects of Rembert and Cruydenboeck's works, and commandeering the result as his own. Gerard abandoned Dodoen's classification, opting for l'Obel's instead, and, in a stroke of ambition and brilliance, illustrated the work with => more than 2500 woodcuts of plants. Many of these are large and all are attractive but more than a few were of plants he himself did not know, thus leading to considerable confusion between illustration and text in the earliest editions, this being third overall and the second with Thomas Johnson's additions and amendments. For both Johnson editions => a large number of the woodcuts were obtained from the famous Leyden printing and publishing firm of Moretus, successors to the highly famous firm of Plantin. As Johnston notes: "Most of the cuts were those used in the botanicals published by Plantin, although a number of new woodcuts were added after drawings by Johnson and Goodyer" (Cleveland Herbal . . . Collections, #185). The large thick volume begins with a handsome engraved title-page by John Payne incorporating a bust of the author, urns with flowers and herbs, and full-length seated images of Dioscorides and Theophrastus and of Ceres and Pomona. Replacing the missing initial blank is a later leaf on which is mounted a large engraving of Gerard. The text is printed in italic, roman, and gothic type. There is, to us, a surprising and very interesting section on grapes and wines. The first part of our caption delights partly in discovery that maize, the "corn" of the U.S., is here called "turkey wheat" — with further note that you can make bread of it, but that the result is pleasing only to "barbarous" tastes! The entry as a whole shows => Gerard at his characteristic best, at once scientifically systematic and engagingly discursive. Provenance: Neatly lettered name of "W. Younge" at top of title-page; it is tempting to attribute this to William Younge, physician of Sheffield and Fellow of the Linnean Society, whose online correspondence shows him to have been an eager collector of botanical books. Late 17th-century English calf, plain style; rebacked professionally in the 20th century, later endpapers. As usual, without the first and last blank leaves. Three leaves with natural paper flaws in blank margins. A very good copy.

        Abriss des Hertzogthums Mantoua nit den umbligenden Landschaften. 1630 - Abriss der Statt Matoua wie selbige dieser Zeit von den Keiserischen belagert worden. 1630

      Germania 1630 - Coppia di incisioni in rame su un foglio, mm 172x280 e 151x280. Molto rare, pubblicate come stampa di occasione durante l'assedio di Mantova del 1629-30. La veduta riprende la consueta tipologia antica rifacendosi a Braun Hogenberg e Hondius. Risulta sconosciuta alla bibliografia. La carta (vedi Ferrari, Mantova nelle stampe 317) prodotta da anonima officina tedesca, è una derivazione diretta dell'Hondius con toponomastica variata. Le stampe storiche pubblicate su fogli volanti sono sempre assai rare e in genere mai originali ma copiate da materiale precedente. Discreto esemplare con stiratura della carta dovuto a restauro.
