        Les Voyages de la Nouvelle France occidentale, dicte Canada

      Paris: chez Claude Collet, 1632. Quarto. (8 1/2 x 6 1/8 inches). Large folding engraved map on two sheets joined, 6 copper engraved illustrations (2 full-page), 2 woodcut illustrations. (Minor worming in the margins, the map matted and accompanying the text). Contemporary speckled calf, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, the others with a repeat overall decoration in gilt. A fine copy of the most important edition of Champlain, complete with its legendary map. Among the rarest and most significant cartographically illustrated works of travel and exploration to North America. Champlain's work stands alone as a full, accurate, detailed account of New France in the first three decades of the seventeenth century. He was the first to systematically explore a large part of the coastline of New England reaching as far south as just below Cape Cod, and probably sighting Martha's Vineyard; he can also be said to have initiated the exploration of the Great Lakes. In short, his work offers an historical and ethnological source without compare. This excellence extends to the illustrations: the six engravings which appear in this edition, identical to those which illustrated the 1619 Champlain, are some of the most accurate illustrations of Indians to appear before the nineteenth century. According to Church, "Of all the editions of Champlain, this is the only complete one." The first part contains abridged accounts of the first six voyages of Champlain, through 1613 (those covered in the volume published that year) and a full account of the seventh voyage of 1615-17, with a brief note on the eighth. The second part contains a full account of the ninth voyage and a history of Canada for the period 1620-31 - this material appears here for the first time. The treatise on navigation makes its first appearance here, as well. Champlain's Voyages is, of course, justly celebrated for its large and legendary map, found here but almost always lacking. The present very fine example is Burden's first state of the landmark map, aptly described as the "last and greatest [map] produced by Champlain ... the prototype of later European maps for nearly a century" (Cumming, The Discovery of North America). Described by Heidenreich as "a mothermap," it "records virtually the full extent of ... [Champlain's] magnificent contribution to the geographic knowledge of northeastern North America" (Heidenreich/Dahl p.4). Burden writes that the map "could be labelled the first to depict the existence of the entire Great Lakes network ... The map covers the same territory as [the map]... of c.1616, but contains far greater detail, extending south as far as the Virginia colonies. The New Netherlands provides one of the areas of most interest in using nomenclature that is of unknown origin. The Hudson River is here called the Riviere des trettes, and Long Island Isle de l'Ascension. Above these is a reference to an unidentified tribe, 'Habitation de sauuages maniganaticouoit'. The church depicted is clearly an indication of the Dutch presence in the region and must be construed as the first delineation of present day New York City on a printed map" (Burden, The Mapping of North America p.295). Champlain's contribution to the exploration, description and mapping of North America is unique: he is the only individual who not only explored vast areas personally, but who also published maps and descriptions of what he had seen: "posterity is fortunate that in Champlain, experience was combined with scientific skill; otherwise the information he gathered would have been lost" (Heidenreich).

        UNHAPPY PROSPERITIE EXPRESSED IN THE HISTORIES OF AELIUS SEIANUS AND PHILIPPA THE CATANIAN. Written in French by P. Matthieu and translated into English by Sr Th. Hawkins

      London, printed by John Haviland for Godfrey Emondson, 1632.. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1632, translated by Sir Thomas Hawkins. Small 4to, 190 x 140 mm, 7½ x 5½ inches, engraved pictorial title page, dated title page to second part but register and pagination continuous, pages: (4), 299, bound in contemporary full vellum, hand lettered to spine. Most copies like ours just have the engraved title without the letterpress title, a few have just a letterpress title. Some discolouration to vellum, some light rust staining to lower cover, head of spine just slightly worn, ties lacking, short closed tear to fore-edge of front endpaper and title page, neatly repaired with no loss, signature on front endpaper, occasional small pale stain, otherwise contents clean and bright. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. The first part is a translation of "Aelius Sejanus, histoire romaine" by Pierre Matthieu. It is translated into English as a satire on the fall of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham. The second part is a translation of "Histoire des prosperitez malheureuses d'une femme cathenoise, grande seneschalle de Naples" also by Matthieu, based on a story from "De casibus illustrium virorum" by Giovanni Boccaccio. Both works are supposed to have been written by Matthieu originally to represent the rise and fall of Concino Concini and his wife, Leonora Galigai. Concino Concini, (d. 1617), was a Florentine adventurer, favourite of Marie de' Medici, queen of France, who exerted great influence after the assassination of Marie's husband, Henry IV in 1610, and succeeded the duke of Sully as first minister. His greed and his spy system won him the hatred of all classes. His efforts to weaken the nobility provoked an unsuccessful revolt (1615) led by Henri II de Condé. In 1617, Louis XIII had Concini assassinated. His wife, Leonora Galigaï (1571?-1617), lady in waiting and favorite of the queen, was beheaded and burned for sorcery.

      Descriptio IX lib. absoluta. Leiden, Elzevir, 1632. 16:o. Grav. titelblad,3-800,(16) s. Samtida ngt nött och lätt solkigt pergamentbd med guldlinjer på rygg och pärmar samt spår av handskriven ryggtitel och numrering. Helt guldsnitt. Med Thure Bielkes namnteckning på titelbladet och förgyllda pärmexlibris på båda pärmarna, på den främre nästan bortnött. Spår av oläsbara stplr på främre pärmens insida.. Willems Les Elzevier 371. Översatt av J. Florius. Johannes Leo Africanus (ca 1494-1554), som var det kristna namnet på al-Hasan ibn Muhammad al-Wazzan al-Fasi, föddes i Granada men växte upp och studerade i Fez. Som sultanens i Fez diplomat gjorde han vidsträckta resor innan han tillfångatogs av kristna korsarer och fördes till Rom. Han frigavs på påven Leo X:s initiativ och lät omvända sig. Hans nordafrikanska geografi ska ha slutförts omkring 1526 men trycktes första gången 1550 under titeln "Della descrittione dell'Africa et delle cose notabili che iui sono". Arbetet, som delvis bygger på författarens egna resor i området, blev mycket populärt och utkom i många upplagor och översattes till flera språk. Thure Bielke (1606-48) var överste vid Nylands och Tavastehus läns regemente till häst, riksråd och slutligen häradshövding över Wehmo härad i Finland. Han hade under 1628-29 besökt Venedig och andra italienska städer och köpt ett stort antal italienska böcker. Han fortsatte att på sitt gods Salsta bygga upp ett stort bibliotek som utökades av sonen Nils Bielke. Fyra band ur Thure Bielkes bibliotek ingick enligt Carlander i Eichhorns bibliotek, två av dessa med samma typ av pärmexlibris som på föreliggande band

      Lugd. Batav.: Elzevir [Elsevier,] 1632. . First thus. . Overall a very good copy, with some darkening to the spine and scratching to the vellum. Spine bears the notation W 371 and inside the front cover is a stamp with Willems 371. Both the content of this book and the 17th c publication by this important house, provide a tangible link to centuries of history. . The 1st Elzevir edition, in Latin translation, of a work originally issued in Italian in 1550. The author, a Moslem who was born in Granada but taken back to North Africa by his family in his early childhood, travelled extensively in Africa. Captured into slavery as a young man, his intelligence and education were recognized by his captors, and he was sent to Rome, where he was freed and converted to Christianity under the patronage of the Medici Pope, Leo X. This book, written in the early 16th Century, is considered to be the first work by a native African on the history and geography of Africa. He describes the trade routes, the peoples, towns and cities, and includes an account of the city of Timbuktu in which he describes the inhabitants as amazingly rich and ruled by a King who possessed a gold ingot which weighed over five hundred kilograms. Although the coast of Africa was known to Europeans to some extent, this was the first account of the interior of Africa, and it inspired Western explorers for hundreds of years. Blockson (101 #1) commented on this book as follows: "Any edition of Africanus works is rare and is the cornerstone of any collection of African history." The Elzevir family were among the great printers of Renaissance Europe, and significant in the establishment of Leiden in the Netherlands as one of the centers of learning and publishing in the 16th and 17th centuries. This book, which includes both volumes bound in one, numbered consecutively and in the original full-vellum binding with yapped edges, is in the very small format for which Elzevir was noted.

        Manipulus Stratagematum.

      Johannes Janssonius, Amsterdam 1632. 12mo. Kobberstukket titelblad. (24)+451+(26) sider. Senere marmoreret papirbind uden rygtitel.. Bibl. Dan. II,331. Med lang trykt tilegnelse til hertug Ulrik, Christian IV's yngste kongelige søn. Tidlig militærhistorie med dansk forfatter. "..en grundlærd mærkværdighed (...) med genfortællinger af episoder fra oldtidens og middelalderens krige, hver med en krigslist eller anden bemærkelsesværdig indsats fra hærførerens side" (Gunner Lind, i Fund og Forskning 1995, p. 19). ** Elias Pedersen Winstrup (eller Vinstrup) (c. 1610-33) var yngste søn af Sjællands biskop Peder Jensen Winstrup og eneste bror til Peder Pedersen Winstrup (1605-79), der blev den sidste danske og første svenske biskop over Lund Stift. Elias studerede først i Sorø, men dimitteredes i 1627 fra Herlufsholm. Hans videre studier førte ham til udlandet. Han studerede i Wittenberg i 1630 og blev i december 1631 immatrikuleret ved universitetet i Leiden. Efter udgivelsen af sin første og eneste bog drog han syg hjem til København, hvor han døde i maj det følgende år. Danske militærhistorikere er sjældent rundet af bispegårde, men det er vel i unge Elias Winstrups familiebaggrund, man finder forklaringen på, at en så ambitiøs udgivelse var mulig. En mulig forbindelse til hertug Ulrik indgår også her. Christian IV's yngste - sympatiske og højt begavede - søn med dronning Anna Cathrine opholdt sig i Leiden i 1630 på vej gennem sin korte europæiske karriere som henholdsvis officer og åndsperson, der beklageligvis endte for en attentatmands kugle i 1633. Som et sært sammentræf gælder det for både Elias Winstrup og prins Ulrik, at man på sigt langt hellere havde set og mærket meget mere til dem end til deres respektive ældre brødre

        Dialogo...sopra I due Massimi Sistemi del Mondo Tolemaico, e Copernicano

      Finely engraved frontis. by Stephano della Bella showing Aristotle, Ptolemy, & Copernicus and several woodcut diagrams & illus. in the text. 5 p.l. (including frontis.), 458, [32] pp. 4to, attractive modern brown morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spine lettered in gilt, t.e.g. Florence: G.B. Landini, 1632. First edition and an excellent, fresh, and large copy; the famous frontispiece is a rich impression with generous margins. Our copy is much less browned than is usual with this book. "The Dialogo was designed both as an appeal to the great public and as an escape from silence. In the form of an open discussion between three friends -- intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic -- it is a masterly polemic for the new science. It displays all the great discoveries in the heavens which the ancients had ignored; it inveighs against the sterility, wilfulness, and ignorance of those who defend their systems; it revels in the simplicity of Copernican thought and, above all, it teaches that the movement of the earth makes sense in philosophy, that is, in physics. Astronomy and the science of motion, rightly understood, says Galileo, are hand in glove. There is no need to fear that the earth's rotation will cause it to fly to pieces. So Galileo picked up one thread that led straight to Newton. The Dialogo, far more than any other work, made the heliocentric system a commonplace."-Printing & the Mind of Man 128. From the library of Jacob Bronowski (1908-74), the mathematician, biologist, historian of science, poet, and inventor. ❧ Cinti 89. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 8. Horblit 18c.

The Third Edition. Whereunto is now newly added an Index of the principall matters and personages mentioned in this Book. London: Printed for M. Flesher, for Rich : Royston, in Ivie-lane next the exchequer office, 1632. Third edition of the first English-language translation by John Florio (the first edition being 1603). Folio (in 6s). 29 cm. [14],631,[13] pp. There are some errors in pagination, including the last page, which is numbered 131. Engraved architectural title-page by Martin Droeshout, which faces the explanation leaf "To the Beholder of This Title," has been trimmed close to the plate, inlaid in a leaf, and bound in. Separate title-pages for the second and third books, dated 1631. Clean text but for Q4&5, which have shallow soiling at bottom edges. In addition, Q5 and three other leaves have small chips in margins which do not affect text. Contemporary blind-ruled calf boards were skillfully rebacked, with the original elaborately gilt-tooled backstrip laid-down, but the upper joint is now cracked and the lower joint is starting. Nonetheless, the binding is sound and not unattractive. Armorial bookplate of Hugh Cecil Lowther, fifth Earl of Lonsdale, on front pastedown. Montaigne's Essayes is one of the great books of world literature and a seminal work in the development of modern thought. His essays were the epitome of sixteenth century skeptical philosophy and gave direction to European philosophy in the next century, from Descartes to Newton. Florio's translation was familiar to all the leading literary figures of the seventeenth century, such as Jonson, Burton, and Browne, not to mention Sir Francis Bacon, who developed the English version of Montaigne's new essay format.

[96], 621, [3 (blank)] pp. First word of title transliterated from Greek.. Bound in plain binder's board.. Bookplates to front eps ("Comte Etienne Karolyi").A VG copy.. Bohme a German philosophical mystic who had a profound influence on such later intellectual movements as idealism and Romanticism. Born of poor parents in Goerlitz Germany, as a boy he tended cattle, later becoming a shoemaker, marrying & fathering 4 children. Boehme, at the robust age of 37 in 1612, wrote his first treatise Aurora, oder Die Morgenroete in Aufgang. In 1613, an unauthorized copy of the manuscript was copied and circulated by Karl von Ender. Its reception "raised him out of his homely sphere, and made him the centre of a local circle of liberal thinkers, considerably above him in station and culture." However, the local pastor primarius of Gorlitz, Gregorius Richter, leveled a charge of heresy. The local muncipal council administered an admonishment to no further "meddle in such matters." This charge Boehme [publicly] followed for 5 years. In 1618 Boehme again started writing expository & polemical treatises. The majority of his works were written, though not formally published, from 1619 - 1624. A second major work, Der Weg zu Christo, was published in 1624, and signaled a renewal of clerical hostility. Boehem, however, was destined to suffer but a short period of this second persecution; he died of an illness on 17 November 1624. Boehme has been said to have a "fertility of ideas" and a "trasncendent greatness of religious insight." Boehme was studied by Sir Isaac Newton and influenced the work Henry More, as well as [and especially] William Law [1686 - 1761]. "Poets such as Milton, Tieck, Novalis and William Blake found inspiration in Boehme's writings. ... Hegel went as far as to say that Boehme was 'the first German philosopher.'" [Wiki]. .
