        Historia Antipodum oder Newe Welt, Das ist: Natur vnd Eigenschaft desz halbentheils der Erden...

      Frankfurt: Matthias Merian, 1631. Three parts in one volume, folio, engraved allegorical title, seven double-page or folding maps and plates, and 174 half-page text engravings; one or two scattered worm holes but a fine copy in contemporary vellum, ties lost, corners slightly bumped; front flyleaf loose; bookplate. First of several editions of this handsome book on the colonisation and conquest of the New World, a heavily-illustrated collection of voyage material relating to the antipodes. While some of the material deals with South America and the oceans of the southern hemisphere, there is much on North America and the West Indies: the word antipodes is used here in its loose sense of opposite ends of the globe, whether opposite by latitude or longitude, thus giving a context for seventeenth-century notions of the antipodes.This is 'important and magnificent, greatly sought after, expensive and rare', says Borba de Moraes, while Müller noted that it 'is sufficiently well known that good copies are very rare... '. For many years it was attributed to Johann Philipp Abelin, the sixteenth-century German chronicler, whose Theatrum Europaeum was a series of chronicles of the chief events in the history of the world down to 1619. Internet resources all repeat this attribution (an object lesson to us all) although, according to Borba de Moraes, J.L. Gallati proved (Der Koniglich schwedische in Deutschland geführte Krieg, 1902) that Gottfried was in fact the real author and not one of Abelin's pseudonyms.The material derives from the Grands Voyages, the great De Bry collection of voyages. Merian, the publisher of Gottfried's book, was De Bry's son-in-law, and therefore had access to the wonderful copper-engraved plates made to illustrate the De Bry collections. He also supplied a number of new maps and plates for this version, including a German edition of the Smith map of Virginia, and a depiction of the Dutch capture of the Spanish treasure fleet in the Bay of Matanzas in 1628.The first part of the book is an abridgment of the "histories" of previous authors, such as Acosta, Oviedo and Herrera as well as Peter Martyr, Laet, Staden and Jean de Léry. The second part is an account of about thirty voyages to the Americas from Columbus and Vespucci to Spilbergen and Schouten, a number of them of interest to the history of the Pacific; the third part deals with the voyage of Jacob l'Hermite, the voyage of the eleven vessels of the Nassau Fleet which sailed to establish a safe southern route for the Dutch to their possessions in the East Indies.

        Traité de la sphère et de ses parties où sont déclarés les noms et offices des cercles, tant grands que petits,& leur signification & utilité. Plus le planisphère universel. Ou explication de la sphère plate, oeuvre agréable aux curieux, profitable aux doctes, nécessaire aux navigateurs, & où se trouvent facilement expliquées plusieurs belles et rares propositions.

      Rouen, Jacques Cailloüé, 1631. ____ Première édition. Ce très rare manuel d'astronomie est illustré par 5 planches gravées sur cuivre et un tableau dépliant. Exemplaire complet de la jolie planche dépliante (36 x 30 cm), la "sphère plate universelle" dont l'usage est traité dans les 78 pages suivantes. Elle est signée "Le Vasseur fecit". L'auteur, qui cite Copernic et Tycho Brahé, expose avec prudence les différentes hypothèses. Ainsi des orbes célestes : l'opinion "la plus commune" est que chaque orbe est complètement séparée de l'autre, "sans laisser de vide entre deux". D'autres, pensent que "les étoiles se meuvent là de la même façon que les poissons en l'eau" & les oiseaux en l'air". Cette dernière opinion paraît être celle de l'auteur. - Du monde, de ses parties, de ses mouvements. - Des cercles desquels la sphère matérielle est composée. - Discours des levés et couchés des signes, de la diversité des jours et des nuits & de la division des climats. - Bref discours de la théorie des planètes. - L'usage de la sphère plate universelle. Guillaume Le Vasseur de Beauplan, né en Normandie, était ingénieur ordinaire du Roi et géographe. Il est le premier à avoir publié une carte de Normandie sur une grande échelle. Cet ouvrage a été publié anonymement et sans le consentement de l'auteur, selon une note à la fin. Frère, Manuel du bibliographe normand (I, 82) ne connaissait pas cette première édition, mais cite de cet auteur "L'usage de la sphère plate universelle, oeuvre agréable aux curieux, profitable aux doctes, nécessaire aux navigateurs, & où se trouvent facilement expliquées plusieurs belles et rares propositions", qui est le même ouvrage, publié au Havre en 1673. Bel exemplaire. Provenance : Earls of Macclesfield (ex-libris héraldique gravé et timbre sec sur le titre).***** First edition. A very rare treaty of astronomy, quoting Copernic and Tycho Brahé, written by a royal engineer and cartographer from Normandy. Complete copy with the beautiful folding plate "Sphère plate universelle" and 4 others plates and a tab. In-4. [177 x 128 mm] Collation : (8), 175, (1), 78, (6) pp., 5 planches h.-t. et 1 tabl. Demi-veau à coins, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre rouge, tranches rouges. (Reliure du XVIIIe.).

        Utopia.

      Amsterdam: Janssonius, 1631. 32mo (9,3 x 4,6 cm). 263 pp. Conemporary vellum, joints with 4 thongs, spine with handwritten title. A very small, miniature Dutch Thomas More-edition with an interesting printing history, exemplary for the "Republic of Letters" of the 17th century in the Netherlands. This aspect also well illustrated by the letters from the preliminaries. This 1631-edition is an exact copy of the second of these Blaeu-editions from 1629. But it is interesting that Blaeu had this edition in 1629 also published under his own name, using the same engraved title page, and furthermore his own printer's device. That edition is not quoted by Gibson. The preliminaries contain several letters, written by humanists - Erasmus to Johann Froben, Guillaume Budé to Thomas Lupset, Buslidius to Thomas More, Pierre Gilles to Busleyden and Johannes paludanus to Pierre Gilles. With a 5-line decorated woodcut initial. Small typeset: 28 lines to the page. Engraved title page with a name in ink and an oval name-stamp. Endpaper with an old handwritten ex-libris "Franz Jos. Á Handl. 1739". Three pages of handwritten text on last endpapers and flyleaf - text somewhat faded. Covers bit stained, a few unobtrusive stains in first two quires (including title page), but otherwise a very nice, rather rare, well-kept and very small edition.

        Von Kronach nach Nördlingen. Der Dreißigjährige Krieg in Franken, Schwaben und der Oberpfalz 1631-1635 [Gebundene Ausgabe] Peter Engerisser (Autor)

      Die Jahre 1631 bis 1635 überzogen Franken, Schwaben und die Oberpfalz mit einer Vielzahl kriegerischer Ereignisse. Dieses Buch bietet einerseits eine detaillierte chronologische Schilderung der historischen Abläufe dieses Zeitraumes. Es vermittelt aber auch ein eindrucksvolles Bild von Heerwesen, Söldnermentalität, Sitten, Gebräuchen und Zeitgeist des Dreizigjährigen Krieges sowie dessen verheerenden Auswirkungen auf Alltag und Leben der Bevölkerung. In mehr als 120 Kurzbiographien erfährt der Leser zudem interessante Details - vor allem über die weniger bekannten Befehlshaber und Offiziere dieser Epoche. Die hier vorliegende überarbeitete und erheblich erweiterte Auflage enthält erstmals die genaue Nomenklatur aller im Gebiet des damaligen Fränkischen Kreises in Aktion getretenen Regimenter und ihrer Befehlshaber - von der Schlacht bei Bamberg 1632 bis zu der bei Nördlingen 1634.

        Set of the world and continents]

      George Humble, [1631]., London, - Speed?Äôs view of the world Engraved maps with hand colouring. A set of five maps comprising a world map and maps of the four known continents. The world map is on a double hemispheric projection in a simple strapwork border, with two smaller celestial maps between. The centre is decorated with personifications of the four elements, and the corners with astronomical information and diagrams. Four cartouches hold portraits of famous explorers, with an English bias: Sir Francis Drake, Ferdinand Magellan, Thomas Cavendish, and Olivier van Noort. Each of the continent maps is surrounded by a border containing views of the principal cities and local people in native costume.John Speed (1552-1629) was the outstanding cartographer of his age. His ?ÄòTheatre of Great Britain?Äô, first published in 1611 or 1612, was the first atlas of Great Britain: Speed prepared the maps himself about two years before they were published. These maps are from the ?ÄòProspect of the Most Famous Parts of the World?Äô, produced in collaboration with Speed to accompany the ?ÄòTheatre?Äô and published in a joint edition by George Humble in 1631. Many of the maps were anglicized versions of works by Dutch makers, who introduced the carte-??-figure style, with borders of figures in local costume and city views. 400 by 520mm. (15.75 by 20.5 inches). Chubb XXV.

        AN EXPLANATION OF THE FASHION AND USE OF THREE AND FIFTY INSTRUMENTS OF CHIRURGERY, Gathered out of Ambrosius Pareus, the famous French chirurgian, and done into English, for the behoofe of yong Practitioners in chirurgery, by H.C.

      31.4 x 21cm. Paper covered boards with leather back with partial gilt titles and leather corners.(i Title Page), (i blank), (ii The Printer To The Reader), (i Contents), (vi To the Worshipfull Company of the Barber Chyrurgeons - H Crooke 1615), (i To the Younger Sort of Barber Chirurgians - 1630), (i blank), (i Ambrose Fisher verse), 60pp. Numerous woodcuts throughout. Label to front pastedown stating: 'The Army Medico-Chirurgical Society, Portsmouth, from J W Fleming F.R.C.S., Surgeon-Major, 4th Dragoon Guards'. Additionally the title page is inscribed by Fleming: ''The Army Medico-Chirurgical Society, Portsmouth, from J W Fleming F.R.C.S.' Fleming was a noted collector of militaria. This is the first appearance in English of An Explanation of the Fashion and Use of three and fifty Instruments of Chirurgery, which was not fully published in English until 1634. Paré (c1510-1590) was a pioneer in surgical techniques and battlefield medicine (in particular the treatment of wounds) and inventor of several surgical instruments, notably the "crow's beak" to control haemorrhaging during amputation. The boards are worn, having loss to the paper covering the boards, loss of most of the spine, very rubbed edges and corners. The binding is firm and square. Internally, there is a 10.5 x 6cm label to the front pastedown as detailed above. The prelims from 'To the Worshipfull Company of the Barber Chyrurgeons' to p1 are lightly stained to the top half of the page as is the top 2cm or so of the remainder of the pages. There are occasional spots, small stains, ink and finger marks throughout occasional ghosting of woodcuts. There is a 2cm repaired closed tear at the fore edge of the title page, a 1.5cm closed tear near the fore edge of the contents page and one other to p ix of the prelims. In all, a very presentable copy of a rare volume in its first English translation.

        Italia nuovamente più perfetta che mai per inanzi posta in luce.

      1631. Incisione in rame, mm 370x490, colorata. Tratta da "Nova et accurata italiae hodiernae descriptio". Fascinosa carta della penisola e delle isole, arricchita di navi e creature mitologiche; bel cartiglio figurato in alto a destra. Jodocus Hondius, latinizzazione dall'olandese di Joost de Hondt (1563-1612) fu un pittore, incisore e cartografo fiammingo. La sua attività, continuata dal suo omonimo figlio, contribuì a fare di Amsterdam il centro della cartografia europea del XVII secolo. Discreto esemplare complessivamente piacevole nonostante numerosi restauri ai margini (fra cui, oltre a strappi, un'ampia mancanza reintegrata), un lungo strappo abilmente restaurato alla piega centrale, che in parte devia verso l'interno della carta, un forellino e altri piccoli difetti.

The first to support Harvey's De motu cordis in print. Fludd was trained anatomist and had watched Harvey cary out dissections at the Royal College of Physicians. In his later writings he referred to those dissections, and he was the first to support Harvey's De motu cordis in print, thinking that the views of his friend confirmed his own cosmological concept of the circulation of the blood publihed in 1629. The Medicina catholica summarizes Fludd's cosmological views and then goes into the weapon-salve problem and magnetism at great length. Restauration en marge de la page 301/302, nombreuses galeries de vers avec atteintes au texte dans la première moitié du volume, taches d'encre sur une double page, toutefois un exemplaire attractif dans sa première reliure.
