Boetius Bolswert was an important figure in this movement, not least because he was the elder brother and instructor of the engraver Schelte à Bolswert, whose reproductions of Rubens's landscapes were most highly esteemed in their own right.

        South-East Asia - Gerard Mercator, 1630.

      DECORATIVE MAP OF THE EAST INDIES?Insulae Indiae Orientalis Praecipuae, In quibus Moluccae celeberrime sunt.? Copper engraving engraving made by Gerard Mercator published in Amsterdam in 1630 by Jodocus Hondius. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 34,5 x 47,6 cm. Verso: Latin text.Striking and highly decorative map of the East Indies from the Mercator-Hondius Atlas.Extends from the Philippines to Timor and Sumatra to New Guinea, detailing the Spice Islands, a region of great importance to seventeenth century Europe, but one about which little was known at the time. Hondius based his map on 16th century portolan charts by Portuguese cartographer Bartolomeu Lasso. Of particular note is the comment Huc Franciscus Dra. Appulit, which appears by the unknown southern coast of Java, representing Drake?s landing during his circumnavigation of the globe in 1577-80.This map follows very shortly the extension of Dutch control over the islands. In 1602 the Dutch East India Company was formed, and within a couple decades the company came to control the region. Includes three strapwork cartouches, and European ships shown in the midst of battle. Other decorative features include two compass roses, rhumb lines and sea monster.Hondius was a religious refugee in London from 1583, so it is likely that he became familiar with Drake?s accounts during this time. On his return to Amsterdam he published an enlarged edition of Mercator?s atlas in 1606, in which this map first appeared.Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) was the founder of the famous 17th century Dutch map publishing family. Hondius, along with sons Jodocus II and Henricus and son-in-law Jan Jansson, was prominent in Dutch cartography and competed with the emerging Blaeu family map business.When Jodocus Hondius acquired the copperplates of the Mercator atlas, he prepared this map for inclusion in his Atlas sive Cosmographicae? This map is dated 1630.Price: ?2.850,-.

        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.".

      Innsbruck, 1. XII. 1630. - 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Mit Adresse und papiergedecktem Siegel. An Franz Christoph Khevenhüller Reichsgraf zu Frankenburg in Aichelberg (1588-1650) mit der Mitteilung von seiner voraussichtlicher Ankunft in Görz am 18. d. M. und daß sein "Cammerdiener und Ambtmann" ihm davon "parte geben werde" sowie "zugleich auch ferner mit dir conferiren solle, waß du mehrers Umbstandts von Ihme vernemmen wirdest". - Leopold V. Ferdinand war 1609 von Rudolf II. zum Verwalter von Jülich und Kleve ernannt worden. Im Bruderzwist zwischen Rudolf und Matthias stellte sich Leopold auf die Seite Rudolfs und erhielt nach der Aussöhnung 1619 und nach dem Tod des Erzherzogs Maximilian III. von seinem Bruder Kaiser Ferdinand II. Tirol und die österreichischen Vorlande als Gubernator des Gesamthauses, "erreichte jedoch in drei Verträgen mit dem Kaiser 1623-30 die Alleinherrschaft als erblicher Landesfürst. 1625 ließ sich Leopold vom Papst von seinen geistlichen Aufgaben entpflichten und heiratete 1626 Claudia von Medici. Die von ihm begründete jüngere Tiroler Linie der Habsburger starb 1665 mit seinen Söhnen aus" (DBE). - Etwas fleckig und an den Rändern angestaubt sowie mit kleinen Randläsuren.

      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). 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.

      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.

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.
