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) .

Der aus Macerata stammende Militärarchitekt P. P. Floriani (1584-1638) wurde - nachdem er in Spanien, Algerien, Oesterreich, Ungarn, Prag und Bratislava als Offizier und Militairingenieur tätig war - 1634 von Papst Urban VIII 1634 nach Malta gesandt, wo er am Bau der Festungsanlagen beteiligt war.

Very scarce first edition of this illustrated encyclopedia of all the parts and implements of fortification, one of the few Italian standard works on the subject published in the 17th century. P. P. Floriani (1584-1638) from Macerata was an engineer employed by pope Urabnus VIII. When Floriani inspected the Valletta front he wrote that these could not be adapted to the artillery warfare prevalent at that time. Warfare was changing and artillery was increasingly being used.

      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.

      Caspar Dietzeln und Christoffs von der Heyden, Strassburg / Strasbourg / Straßburg 1630 - Hardcover. Small 8vo. [xvi] + 224 pp. a8 A-O8. Original blanks (not counted in collation) at front and rear. Later pig skin over boards, with paper title label. Fresh endpapers. Decorated head and tail pieces throughout, and numerous delightful woodcuts, mostly of alchemical-type apparatus. Text in German. Philip Ulstadt was a Nürnberg "patricius" who taught medicine at Freyburg "Medicus & philosophus egregius in Academia Friburgensi." His "Coelum philosophorum" was first published in 1528, and subsequently went through a number of editions. It is a treatise on distillation and on the uses of the substances derived from it in the medical and alchemical arts, and is apparently drawn heavily from the works of Joannes de Rupescissa, Ramón Lull, Arnaldus de Villanova and Albertus Magnus. According to Ferguson, the numerous woodcuts "of apparatus, retorts, flasks, receivers, furnaces, &c., &c., are identical with those in the folio editions of Geber, printed by Gruninger in the early part of the sixteenth century." (Ferguson Vol. II, p. 482.) Pages darkened with corners rounded, one small (match-head sized) hole in pp. 41/42 in the margin of illustrations on either side, with no loss save to a couple of letters. Top margin trimmed close to the running heads on a handful of leaves. Neat contemporary owner's name (?) across title page. A few lines of early manuscript notes on verso of final blank. A very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A bound collection of vellum sheets illuminated with original bodycolour paintings on 28 panels, the vellum sheets originally forming two continuous manuscript rolls, both relating to the De La Broye family, attested to by J. Simon, the chief clerk of the Chamber of Accounts of the city of Lille

      Lille, Spanish Netherlands, 1630. Folio. (17 1/2 x 12 inches). Mounted on guards throughout. Roll 1 (signed twice by J.Simon): 15 vellum sheets, the majority folded, with a total of 27 columns of text (with 9 original integral vignette bodycolour paintings), and 22 rectangular panels flanked on either side by a thick gold rule, each panel 4 1/2 inches wide and containing an original bodycolour painting of flowers with a single figure of a man (in 19 panels) or a bird (in 3 panels) - the men variously dressed in costume of the period and involved in various pursuits: hunting, cooking, fencing, playing a drum, etc. Roll 2 (signed once by J. Simon): 4 vellum sheets, 3 folded, with a total of 6 columns of text and 1 wide horizontal area also bearing text (with 5 integral vignette bodycolour paintings), and 6 rectangular panels (three thick panels approx. 5 3/4 inches wide; three thinner panels approx 3 3/4 inches wide) flanked on either side by a thick gold rule and each containing an original bodycolour painting of flowers with a single bird (in 4 panels); a bird and a snail (1 panel) or a bird, a butterfly and flowers (1 panel). 18th-century vellum over pasteboard, early manuscript title to spine Provenance: Louis-François Quarré-Reybourbon (Lille, Collection Quarré-Reybourbon 19th-century bookplate); Paul Anatole Auguste Marie Denis du Péage (Lille, 1874-1952, armorial bookplate) Important early collection of original botanical paintings celebrating wealth and status through a show of rare and expensive varieties of tulips and others exotic cultivars. Originally produced for the De La Broye family, this series was more recently in the collections of two of the foremost historians of Lille and its great families. Despite their obvious historical importance, the chief interest of these manuscripts to the modern eye is undoubtedly the exceptional illuminated panels that separate each column of text. The overall theme is floral: not wild flowers but the extremely expensive cultivated flowers that were coming to prominence at the beginning of the seventeenth century. This concentration on exotic blooms in the present manuscript was a deliberate attempt to link the De La Broye family with the opulence that these flowers implied. The most famous of these luxury plants was the tulip, and given the time and the place where these drawings were done it is no surprise to find various cultivars of the tulip predominating. It is interesting to note that all the varieties shown are of the most expensive bybloemen group. The courtly interest of the 1600s had by the 1620s become more widespread, and from 1634 to 1637 tulips, like the multi-coloured varieties pictured here, were the flowers which fuelled the tulipomania craze in the Netherlands. At its height, sums equal to the cost of a good-sized house on the waterfront in Amsterdam were gambled on single bulbs. These manuscripts form one of the earliest known collections of images of a significant number of different varieties of tulips: at least twenty are pictured, and although they are not identified, they form a rare and valuable record of the cultivars of the period. In addition to tulips, the images also include pinks, narcissi, irises, martagon lilies, roses and asters. The majority of images are further enlivened by the addition of what are possibly various members of the De La Broye family, all men, all dressed in costume of the period, and all undertaking worthy pursuits. These include a preponderance of military actions: firing a gun, on horseback with sword drawn, on foot with sword drawn, etc., but they are also shown hunting and cooking. All of these figures are placed at the foot of each panel and are worked to a completely different scale to the flowers. The panels without figures have birds or other animals added that are more in scale with the flowers around them. There is a further group of illustrations that are used to decorate the columns of text: a number of these appear to have been used to mask out areas of the text that were not required (the original text can be made out under the paintings), whilst others are used to great decorative effect. The images used in this group include hunting, fishing, animals against a naturalistic background and two men on horseback. The two documents, produced for the De La Broye family of Lille, can be dated to a golden period for the city of Lille when the city and a large area of what is now northern France was ruled over by Spain and formed part of what was then known as the Spanish Netherlands. An examination of what is now a bound collection of vellum sheets of various sizes reveals that they were originally glued together to form two document rolls with the illuminated panels acting as dividers between each vertical column of text. Internal evidence shows that both rolls were compiled for the De La Broye family as proofs of nobility. To achieve the status of gentleman it was necessary for an individual in trade to prove that his family had in the past been of sufficient standing to warrant his being elevated once again. To provide this proof the De la Broye family apparently retained the services of J. Simon the premier greffier or chief clerk of the Chamber of Accounts of Lille. He arranged for the archives to be searched for every reference to the good work or good standing of the family. These extracts (dating from the 13th to the 16th century) were then copied out by skilled scribes using various calligraphic and textual hands (apparently in imitation of the originals). Each extract was headed by a precis of what it was and a note about which original document it had been taken from, and each was attested to by J. Simon. An overall summary of the findings was added which was signed by J. Simon (roll 1: signed twice and dated once 26 October 1630; roll 2: signed once).

        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.

      By Robert Barker, printer to the Kings most excellent Maiestie: and by the assignes of Iohn Bill,, London 1630 - POVERTY LEGISLATION BY CHARLES I FIRST EDITION, third issue. 4to. pp. (iv), 33, (xxi) 17 (i). A-I4, K2. first leaf blank but for signature. Roman and Italic letter. Full page woodcut arms of Charles I on verso of title page, large historiated woodcut initials, historiated and grotesque woodcut head and tail-pieces. Light age yellowing, verso of last fractionally dusty. A very good copy, crisp and clean in excellent speckled calf c. 1900 by Riviere, covers bordered with a triple gilt rule, spine with raised bands, richly gilt in compartments red morocco label, inner dentelles and edges gilt, a.e.r. Important third issue of the first edition of Charles I landmark "Book of Orders" concerning the treatment of the poor, vagabonds, drunkards, unmarried families, poverty, corn hoarding, famine and pestilence, of tremendous social, political and historic interest: this issue has been partially reset and reimposed from the first two editions and it adds a list of Privy Councilors and Justices allotted to each circuit not previously printed. As described in its introduction, the purpose of The Book was to ensure "better administration of justice (.) relief of the poor and (.) reformation of disorders", greatly increasing the control of Charles' government over what had until then been largely local affairs handled by the local gentry. The book directed the Justices of the peace in measures for the control and relief of the poor, and dealt with issues such as vagrancy, alehouses, the binding out or apprenticing of pauper children and houses of correction. To guarantee the due implementation of these orders, Justices of the Peace were to hold monthly divisional meetings and to provide the sheriff with quarterly reports. A royal commission or privy councillors was established to oversee the whole operation. "Poor laws were instituted by many sixteenth-century European governments: Catholic and Protestant, urban provincial and national. The legislation had two main focuses: first, regulating the supply of relief by reforms of medieval hospitals and almshouses, and by statutory provision for the "worthy" poor, second controlling demand for relief by punitive measures against the "unworthy", especially the able bodied who begged, who were defined as vagabonds. The English legislation included several components, including settlement acts and vagrancy regulations, as well as poor relief provisions. There is considerable evidence of the enforcement of the poor laws under the early Stuarts. The ‘Book of Orders’ of 1630 was the most comprehensive attempt to date to enforce the legislation. Large numbers of vagrants were arrested - about 25,000 between 1631 and 1639, according to reports by county officials to the privy council. There is also considerable evidence of of the implementation of poor relief in the 1630s. Of course the orders of 1630 were not unprecedented. Similar action was taken after four poor harvests between 1594 and 1597 and following Elizabethan legislation in 1598 and 1601. It was in the 1620’s that widespread enforcement began, which suggests that the orders of 1630 were building on established foundations". Ronald H. Fritze "Historical Dictionary of Stuart England, 1603-1689". Charles I’s ‘Book of Orders’ did more to establish a national system of "Poor Relief" than any previous edict. A very good copy of an important work. STC 9252.4 ESTC S4250 English [Attributes: Hard Cover]
