        Claudii Galeni in aphorismos hippocratis commentaria: Ex Interpretatione Anutii Foesii & Gulielmi Plantii, cum Annotationibus Ejusdem. Editio novissima, a multis, quibus antea scatebat mendis, diligenter repurgata Ab Adriano Toll Lugd. Bat. M.D.

      Lugduni Batavorum [i.e. Leiden]: Ex Officina Joannis Maire, 1633. [4], 800pp, [22]. Contemporary vellum with contrasting black morocco lettering-pieces. Rubbed and somewhat soiled, joints cracked at head and foot of spine, chipping and slight loss to lettering-pieces. Remnant of armorial bookplate to FEP with motto "Time Unum", ink spot to bottom margin of title, worming to bottom margin at gutter to all leaves of latter third, light damp-staining to index leaves. Greek Physician Galen's (129-c.200) commentary on the Aphorisms of "father of medicine" Hippocrates (c.460-c.370 BCE). The Aphorisms comprise an extensive series of propositions concerning the symptoms and diagnosis of disease and the art of healing and medicine. It is upon these terse sayings that the Hippocratic Oath, the seminal document on the ethics of medical practice, was framed. The first aphorism, arguably the most well-known, may be translated thusly; 'Life is short, and Art long; the crisis fleeting; experience perilous, and decision difficult. The physician must not only be prepared to do what is right himself, but also to make the patient, the attendants, and externals cooperate.' . Editio novissima. 12mo.

        The text of the New Testament of Iesus Christ, translated out of the vulgar Latine by the Papists of the traiterous Seminarie at Rhemes ... Whereunto is added the translation out of the original Greeke, commonly used in the Church of England.

      London: Pr. by Augustine Mathewes on[e] of the assignes of Hester Ogden Folio (33.3 cm, 13.25"). Frontis., engr. t.-p., [58], 912, [18], 25, [1], 206, [2], 17, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1633 When the Jesuit scholars at Rheims succeeded in printing their Catholic translation of the New Testament into English (first edition, 1582), the event affected various English Protestant scholars in different ways: Some were offended or outraged, others intrigued, and yet others spurred to action. William Fulke, of Pembroke College, Cambridge, was among those offended, outraged, and spurred: In 1589 he produced the first edition of his work attempting to refute the Rheims New Testament. His approach, however — which was to print the Rheims NT in parallel columns with the Bishops' NT (the then accepted version of the Church of England), supplying accompanying notes and explanations — had unforeseen consequences. As Darlow and Moule comment, "by printing the Rheims Testament in full, side by side with the Bishops' version, [Fulke] secured for the former a publicity which it would not otherwise have obtained, and was indirectly responsible for the marked influence which Rheims exerted on the Bible of 1611." Alan Thomas elaborates by observing that "many a dignified or felicitous phrase was silently lifted by the editors of King James's Version, and thus passed into the language" (Great Books and Book Collectors, p. 108). This is the fourth edition, "wherein are many grosse absurdities corrected." A portrait of William Fulke precedes the engraved title-page, both done by William Marshall. The Biblical text is followed (as issued) by Fulke's Defense of the Sincere and True Translation of the Holy Scriptures into the English Tongue, against the Manifold Cavils, Frivolous Quarrels, and Impudent Slanders of Gregorie Martin. Contemporary mottled calf, covers framed and panelled in gilt double fillets with gilt-stamped corner fleurons, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label, all edges gilt; binding rubbed, leather moderately acid-pitted, joints cracked, rectangle of leather lost at upper inner corner of front cover. Lower edges of closed book rubber-stamped; free endpapers excised; lower outer corners lightly waterstained at rear; pages otherwise slightly age-toned but notably clean. A sound, good copy.

Edition originale de ce rare traité de médecine et d'alchimie rédigé par David de Planis Campy (1589-1644), médecin et chirurgien du roi Louis XIII. L'auteur, adepte des travaux de Paracelse (1493-1541), contribua à la chrysothérapie, en proposant un remède à base d'or pour guérir certaines maladies. Il fut aussi un défenseur de l'or potable, élixir toxique à base d'or dissout dans de l'eau, très en vogue à la Renaissance. Défauts à la reliure, mors de la coiffe et de la queue fendus, quelques pages brunies, mouillure claire sans gravité en bas de page.

      Hieronymus Verdussen, Antwerp 1633 - 308 x 98 mm. (12 1/8 x 3 7/8"). [126] leaves. Contemporary sprinkled sheep, raised bands, spine attractively gilt in compartments with floral lozenge centerpiece and volute cornerpieces, maroon morocco label. WITH 3,370 WOODCUTS depicting both sides of 1,685 coins in their actual size. Minor rubbing to joints and extremities, faint stains to pastedowns (from glue?), other trivial defects internally, but AN UNUSUALLY FINE COPY, the binding with only negligible wear, and the text quite clean and fresh. Printed on thick, high quality paper, this compendium of the coins in use in Europe during the 17th century is an excellent artifact of commerce in the Dutch Golden Age, when the Netherlands dominated trade in Europe as the most prosperous nation of the era. Our volume was printed in Antwerp, a major commercial center, and was intended for use by merchants, bankers, and money changers, all of whom needed to determine the legitimacy and value of the multitude of currencies then in circulation. Cities, duchies, principalities, dioceses, and other bodies issued their own coinage in addition to that minted by heads of state and the Holy Roman Emperor, and as leaders of these governments changed, so did the money. In short, it was nightmarishly complex for anyone conducting commerce that went beyond bartering, and the multinational trade of the Dutch presented a particular challenge. The present guide illustrates both sides of each coin, depicted in its actual size and sometimes accompanied by notations of weight and metallic content. The unusual dimensions of the book--which make the volume of interest even apart from its content--represent the size and shape of a ledger, which would have been carried by a merchant or banker in the pocket of a robe. While it seems unlikely that the present volume is unique in its content, this kind of book seems not to have been widely printed. In any case, ours appears to be the only edition under this or any similar title. It is uncommonly seen in the marketplace, and as a heavily consulted book, it is almost always found in poor condition.

        HISTRIO-MASTIX. THE PLAYERS SCOURGE, OR, ACTORS TRAGÆDIE

      London: Printed by E. A. and W. I. for Michael Sparke, 1633. FIRST EDITION, Second Issue, as virtually always (with "Errataes" on ***4v) y. The Puritan divine William Prynne (1600-69) loosed his moral lightning upon the theater of his time in the present diatribe, a work that could not have been more unrestrained nor more ill-timed. This was no precision ideological sortie, but an unbridled surfeit of castigation. In the words of the Norton Anthology of English Literature, "in this passionate . . . tirade of over 1,000 pages larded with authorities in the text and margins--classical philosophers, Church Fathers, Protestant theologians--Prynne denounced stage plays, cross-dressed male actors, court masques, mixed dancing in masques and everywhere else, maypoles, wakes and other rural festivals, country sports on the sabbath, Laudian ritual, stained-glass windows and much more, staking out the most extreme Puritan position on traditional recreations at court and in the countryside." Prynne was also outraged by the favor shown to Shakespeare by printers, ranting, "Shackpeers Plaies are printed in the best Crowne paper, far better than most Bibles." The book would have attracted much less attention if it hadn't contained a number of stories of rulers and magistrates whose support of, or participation in, theatrical productions seemed to bring about their demise. It happened that Charles and his queen, Henrietta Maria, often danced in court masques, and Prynne's allusions to "scurrilous amorous pastorals" and to female actors as "notorious whores" struck way too close to the royal home. As a consequence, our author was imprisoned for life, eventually stripped of his academic credentials, disbarred, fined £5,000, placed in the pillory at Westminster and Cheapside, forced to watch his books being publicly burned (the first English books to go up in flames this way), and relieved of a portion of his ears. (This was before freedom of the press.) Like its author, this item (unlike the present copy) is almost always found in wretched condition.. 198 x 140 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 1/2"). 17 p.l., 512 pp., 513-568 leaves, 545-582, [2] blank, 831-1,006 pp., [20] leaves (obviously erratic numbering, but complete). FIRST EDITION, Second Issue, as virtually always (with "Errataes" on ***4v). Contemporary sprinkled calf, recently resewn and rebacked by Courtland Benson. Pforzheimer III, 809; STC 20464; Brunet IV, 618; Graesse V, 468. First few leaves with faint, inoffensive stain at lower inner margin, otherwise QUITE A FINE COPY, with only trivial imperfections--the expertly restored binding unworn, and the text consistently fresh, almost entirely clean, and with ample margins.

Ståtligt mörkbrunt marokängbd med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad rygg, rik ramdekor i guld på pärmarna, kantförgyllning, breda inre förgyllda denteller samt sannolikt gammalt helt guldsnitt (Hedberg). I svart fodrad och skinnskodd klotkassett. Ryggen blekt och med några små nötningar. Några ark lätt bruntonade, t.ex. registret i början. Något brun- och fuktfläckad, främst i övre marginalen. Några samtida understrykningar i bläck. Bläckfläckar på s. (2-3), 676-77 och 708-09. Utspillt bläck i övre hörnet på s. 538. Rostfläckar på s. 119 och 733, den senare även med ett litet hål. På titelbladets baksida en anteckning: "dono domini de Villebray fr. Ludovicus Poxiensis 1757". Titelbladet med en triangulär svartstpl med hebreiska tecken och en namnteckning på försättsbladet. Ur Gustaf Bernströms bibliotek med hans guldpressade exlibris på främre pärmens insida och hans anteckning "coll. cat." Det tryckta dedikationsbladet till Axel Oxenstierna saknas.. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 67. Med tryckt dedikation till drottning Kristina. Detta är Gustav II Adolfs svenska fältbibel. Den trycktes i en ny upplaga 1635, även denna gång av J. Marci. På det graverade titelbladet avbildas bland annat en bataljscen med rubriken "bellum domini" och en konung i rustning som kröns av änglar. Han har fötterna på ett benrangel och bär omisskännliga drag av Gustav II Adolf, låt vara i något smärtare gestalt än den verkliga förlagan. Han är flankerad av två mindre avbildningar av Jesu korsfästelse respektive Adam och Eva i paradiset. Under konungen står skrivet "post mortem victor". Karaktären av fältbibel understryks även av andra deviser på titelbladet som "religio defensa" och "libertas Germanica". På s. 290 i sista sidföljden finns "Några böner högnödige/ i thetta krigswesendet/ och jemmerfülla tijd". Eskil Hellman har i "Den svenska bibeln genom tiderna" hävdat att denna bibel "torde vara världens första fältbibel". Ludovicus Poxiensis var klosterbroder i Paris

David de Planis Campy (1589- c.1644) was a councillor and surgeon in ordinary to Louis XIII. He produced 10 works on medical chemistry and traditional alchemy. He was a fervent admirer of Paracelsus and accepted the relationship of the macrocosm and the microcosm and the doctrine of signatures. In this work examining the styles of the hermetic philosophers who treated of alchemy he singles out the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus as the text in which the secret work of nature is uniquely well expressed.

Jacques Callot was a baroque printmaker and draftsman from the Duchy of Lorraine (an independent state on the north-eastern border of France, southwestern border of Germany and overlapping the southern Netherlands). He is an important person in the development of the old master print. He made more than 1,400 etchings that chronicled the life of his period, featuring soldiers, clowns, drunkards, Gypsies, beggars, as well as court life. He also etched many religious and military images, and many prints featured extensive landscapes in their background. His most famous prints are his two series of prints each on "the Miseries and Misfortunes of War". These are known as Les Grandes Misères de la guerre, consisting of 18 prints published during 1633, and the earlier and incomplete Les Petites Misères — referring to their sizes, large and small (though even the large set are only about 8 x 13 cm). These images show soldiers pillaging and burning their way through towns, country and convents, before being variously arrested and executed by their superiors, lynched by peasants, or surviving to live as crippled beggars. At the end the generals are rewarded by their monarch. During 1633, the year the larger set was published, Lorraine had been invaded by the French during the Thirty Years' War and Callot's artwork is still noted with Francisco Goya's Los Desastres de la Guerra (The Disasters of War), which was influenced by Callot, as among the most powerful artistic statements of the inhumanity of war.

The Treaty of Madrid, here in the first Lisbon edition (Portugal at this time was controlled by Spain), made peace between Spain and Britain. Its main importance to the New World was its guarantee that British traders could move freely and do business in America and the East Indies, except those parts of the West Indies, Central and South America where the Spanish had settlements. Thus it still kept England out of the Caribbean, but gave free rein to trade with the North American colonies, and for the British to pursue their plantings of colonies in unoccupied parts of the Americas.

        The garden of health: containing the sundry rare and hidden vertues and properties of all kindes of simples and plants. Together with the manner how they are to bee used and applyed in medicine for the health of mans body, against divers diseases and infirmities most common amongst men.

      London: Printed by Thomas Harper 4to in 8s (19 cm; 7.5"). [4] ff., 702 pp., [33] ff.. 1633 Preparing for a trip from England to Virginia or Massachusetts in the 1630s or 40s, one would have been well advised to make sure someone in the party was bringing a copy of Langham's work. Once in America, one would have made good use of the herbal remedies for some of the more common ailments the newly arrived would have suffered, and one would have had greater access to the "exotic" American sarsaparilla and guaiacum that Langham discusses. This precursor to the "Physician's Desk Reference" is a practical compendium of medicinal and other plants arranged alphabetically from "acacia" to "wormwood" with a strong emphasis on plants that "can be gotten without any cost or labour, the most of them being such as grow in most places and are common among us" (folio [2]). Langham's organization is this: "He devoted a chapter to each plant, describing its parts and their uses, the different processes such as distillation that could be applied to it, and how the resulting products could be used for particular diseases. To every item of information he added a number and at the end of the chapter there is an index or table of conditions with the numbers that were in the main text. The reader can thus see at a glance that one herb could be used in a wide variety of conditions, and whether a specific illness could be helped by a particular drug" (Wear, pp. 82–83). This is the second edition, "corrected and amended," the first having appeared in 1597. We are sure the reading public, which was sufficient to support a second edition, would have been helped rather more if the work had had illustrations, but that would have increased the cost of the work dramatically and a => wide audience was sought. The text is printed chiefly in gothic type while the end of chapter "indices" are in roman. This herbal was not printed during a period of good English typography, so the pages are dense with little white space or appreciation for making the text on the page easy on the eye rather than wearying. Contemporary English calf, boards modestly ruled in blind at edges; rebacked in high quality goat. Age-toning or old soiling, especially at the edges of margins and with offsetting from binding to title-page; some light marginal waterstaining especially at end in index; some short tears with last leaves' edges chopped and final two with edges strengthened. => Overall, an unsophisticated copy that has been spared being washed, pressed, and gussied up!

        CARTOGRAFIA SÉCULO XVII ? ORBIS TERRAE NOVISSIMA DESCRIPTIO.

      - Mapa de 1633 (datado). Aberto a chapa de cobre. Colorido à mão. Em moldura de madeira dourada. Dim.: 34 x 51,5 cm; com moldura 49 x 64 cm Cartógrafo e Gravador: Jocodus Hondius [1563?1612] Editor: Jean Le Clerc [1560 ? 1621] Descrição física: Escala: 1:80.000.000 Mapa com dois hemisférios, rodeado de diversas tabelas astronómicas e meteorológicas e diagramas que incluem tabelas de ventos, uma tabela lunar e tabelas de temperaturas. Apresenta ainda uma rosa dos ventos decorativa. Nas águas não exploradas encontram-se representados diversos monstros marinhos e veleiros. Legenda em cartela em baixo: ?DOMINI EST TERRA ET PLENITUDO EIUS, ORBIS TERRARUM ET UNIVERSI QUI HABITANT IN EO. QUIA SUPER MARIA FUNDAVITEU M, Etc.PSAL 24? Verso: Texto em francês descrevendo o mapa. Descrição de conteúdos: Um belíssimo exemplo deste mapa, raramente publicado em separado, da autoria de J. Hondius e J. Le Clerc. Com base no mapa de 1587 de Gerard Mercator [1512-1594] e apedido de Le Clerc, Hondius produziu este mapa pela primeira vez em 1602. Esta versão é a última e a mais rara, identificável pela adição da data, 1633. Ao contrário doq ue acontece com edições anteriores, não se conhece nenhum atlas de Le Clerc desta altura. O texto em francês no verso, no entanto, faz-nos pensar que seria parte de um Atlas, provavelmente uma edição não registada. Sendo um mapa anterior às grandes descobertas das décadas seguintes, existe alguma especulação e merece um estudo detalhado. Na América do Norte, que na altura ainda estava em grande parte por explorar, estão representados os reinos lendários de Quiviara, Anian, Tolm e Cibola no Oeste americano. A nordeste mais um reino lendário, Norombega. Pode ainda ver-se um grande lago ou baía que abre para o Ártico, identificado como Mare Dulce, e que corresponde ao lago Conibas de Mercator no seu mapa das Regiões Polares de 1595. Aqui representado mais a sul leva a crer que Mercator possuía já conhecimento da região dos Grandes Lagos antes da sua descoberta oficial. Nova Albion encontra-se identificada no noroeste da América, confirmando assim as reivindicações da região associadas à viagem de circum-navegação de Sir Francis Drake. A América do Sul segue o modelo padrão da época, com a região mais a sul cortada a norte do Estreito de Magalhães. A Terra do Fogo está identificada como ?Insula Regina Elisabete?, referenciando novamente a viagem de Drake. Isto é significativo, dado que a maior parte dos mapas da altura apresentavam a Terra do Fogo como uma massa de terra ligada a Terra Australis. Esta escolha de a representar como um arquipélago, muito antes de se provar que o era, tem implicações políticas, tendo assim os concorrentes dos holandeses, que dominavam o Estreito de Magalhães, uma alternativa de passagem para o Pacífico. Estão identificadas diversas cidades importantes, incluindo Lima, Cuzco e São Miguel. O continente é dominado por dois grandes rios, o Amazonas e o Rio da Prata/Paraguai. O Chile é nomeado e identificado como terra de antropófagos e canibais. Em contraste com o que acontece em mapas posteriores, não existe qualquer referência ao El Dorado. A África tem também um formato padrão mostrando dois grandes rios, o Nilo e o Niger, a dominarem o continente. O Nilo é representado de acordo com o modelo ptolomaico alongando-se para sul. Uma vez que nesta altura ainda não tinham sido efectuadas a maior parte das missões missionárias à Abíssinia, tanto o Nilo Azul como o Nilo Branco não estão correctamente cartografados. Por outro lado, o Niger segue uma rota mais ou menos correcta, excepto no desvio para sul que faz a ligação com o Biafra. O mapeamento do rio sugere que seria possível a ligação ente o Congo e Moçambique, o que mais tarde se veio a revelar impraticável. A Ásia tem diversos pontos interessantes, como a orientação do Mar Negro de este para oeste, um erro comum na época. Os quatros grandes rios do sudoeste asiático, o Irrawaddy, o Dharla, o Mekong e o Chao Phraya, têm como origem um únic

Thus it still kept England out of the Caribbean, but gave free rein to trade with the North American colonies, and for the British to pursue their plantings of colonies in unoccupied parts of the Americas. ^An important treaty, with substantial economic consequences. Scarce. Not in EUROPEAN AMERICANA nor on OCLC. DAVENPORT 35. PALAU 43236.

        Juvenilia or certaine Paradoxes and Problemes The second Edition, corrected.

      London, Printed by E. P. for Henry Seyle 1633. - Small 4to., pp. [4], 44, with the initial blank; small stain to inner margin of first gathering, else a very good copy in modern boards, bookplate of the Welsh industrialist Thomas Edward Watson.Second edition, published in the same year as the first, with the omission of the licences to print but adding twenty-three new lines to Problem I, 'Why have Bastards best Fortune' ('Because Fortune herself is a Whore '), a Problem which, Keynes remarks, 'was particularly insulting to the Court'.'Donne's Juvenilia are clever and entertaining trifles, most of which were probably written before or soon after 1600 during his youth Owing to their rather free nature they could not be published during Donne's lifetime, but in 1632, shortly after his death, part of them was licensed by Sir Henry Herbert It is not known through what channels the publisher, Henry Seyle, obtained possession of the text, which had been circulating for over thirty years in a number of manuscripts' (Keynes). In a letter of 1600, probably to Sir Henry Wotton, Donne himself refers to their 'lightnes' for 'they were made rather to deceive tyme than her daughthr truth they are but swaggerers'. Keynes notes that 'the second edition is now more uncommon than the first'. STC 7044; Keynes 44. Language: English

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      Amsterdam: Henry Hondius, 1633. Engraving with contemporary hand-colouring. French text. Some minor browning and toning. Skilful repairs to left and right margins. "The first and most important derivative of John Smith's map of Virginia, originally published in 1612" (Burden) This is derivative 5, state 1, bearing the imprint of Henricus Hondius. Originally issued by Jodocus Hondius from 1618-1629, the map closely follows State 1 of Smith's Virginia of 1612, without longitude and the various names added in Smith's later states. Upon Hondius's death in 1629, Blaeu purchased the plates and the imprint was thereafter changed to reflect the new ownership. Blaeu used the map first in his Atlantic Appendix (1630) and afterwards in virtually every edition of his atlas. This example was issued with Mercator's L'Appendice de l'Atlas , Amsterdam, 1633. "Through the purchase of this plate by William Jansz. Blaeu in 1629 and its subsequent extensive publication for forty-two years, word of the English in Virginia became known throughout Europe. It is slightly larger than its parent, although more attractively engraved. Taken from the first state of Smith, it continues the coastlines where the former left them vague." (Burden 193) The map includes the council scene of Chief Powhatan in the upper left and the British Royal Coat of Arms in the upper right. The British were the first to establish a successful colony on the North American coast in defiance of the Spanish, who felt legally entitled to it, and this represents the moment when English speaking people began to prevail in America.

        Novus Orbis seu descriptionis Indiae Occidentalis libri XVIII .... Novis tabulis geographicis et variis animantium, plantarum fructuumque iconibus illustrati

      Leiden: Elzevier, 1633. Folio. (13 3/16 x 8 5/8 inches). Half-title. Engraved title with elaborate emblematic and architectonic border, 14 double-page engraved maps by Hessel Gerritsz, 68 woodcut illustrations. Contemporary calf, covers with double-fillet border in blind, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by pairs of fillets in blind, painted figure '4' carefully painted in an attractive early calligraphic hand in white paint in the uppermost compartment, red-stained edges, expert restoration to head and foot of the spine, modern cloth chemise, modern red morocco-backed cloth slipcase, lettered in gilt on the spine Provenance: Early annotations in an unidentified hand An exceptional copy of the first Latin edition of 'arguably the finest description of the Americas published in the seventeenth century' (Burden), the maps include the first to use the names Manhattan, New Amsterdam (for New York) and Massachusetts, and 'one of the foundation maps of Canada' (Burden) This work is one of the most important 17th-century New World histories. It is a cornucopia of early knowledge of the Americas and was compiled by de Laet, a director of the newly formed Dutch West India Company with access to all the latest geographic knowledge. Pierre Francois Xavier de Charlevoix (1682-1761,) writing in the 18th century, noted that the work as a whole 'is full of the most excellent and curious details of the natural history, and the character, manners, and customs of the American aborigines, derived from the reports of the European mission establishments in America.' The present first edition in Latin was preceded by two editions in Dutch (the first of which was published in 1625). De Laet continued to add to and improve the work throughout his lifetime: the present edition contains 14 maps as opposed to the 10 in the 1625 edition and the text has been considerably expanded. This copy is unusual in two respects: firstly its outstanding condition, and secondly for the early, certainly 17th century, annotations by an English-speaking owner who appears to have had some contact with the Americas, or, at least, with the products of the region. The front free endpaper includes an accomplished small ink drawing of a plant labelled 'Cassavi' with a two-line note beside it 'Mammosaporta / a Jamaica fruite;' the second blank includes a reference to an important scientific work by Mario Bettino first published in 1645 ('Marii Bettini Apiarium Mathematicum;') the index of the subjects of the woodcuts on the page preceding the first page of the main text includes two references which correctly identify 'a Kinge Crab. novis Anglis' and a pineapple as a 'Queene Pine'. The maps are by Hessel Gerritsz and are some of the very best to appear up to that time. Gerritsz had trained under Willem Blaeu but had been chosen in preference to his old master when the appointment of cartographer to the Dutch West India Company was made. The charming textual illustrations are chiefly of biological or botanical specimens, and are generally surprisingly accurate for their time, and each of the eighteen constituent books is turned over to the consideration of a different region of the New World. The quality of the maps can be gauged from the fact that they served as a prototype for the mapping of America, with a number of them being reused in various later 17th-century atlases. The maps are titled as follows: 1. 'Americae sive Indiae occidentalis tabula generalis' [Burden 229 'The best west coast delineation to date'] 2. 'Maiores minoresque insulae. Hispaniola, Cuba, Lucaiae et Caribes' 3. 'Nova Francia et regiones adiacentes' [Burden 230 'One of the foundation maps of Canada'] 4. 'Nova Anglia, Novum Belgium et Virginia' [Burden 231 'The first [map] to use the names Manhattan and N. Amsterdam. It is also the earliest to use... Massachusets (sic.)'; Cumming 35; Schwartz & Ehrenberg p. 105] 5. 'Florida. et regiones vicinae' [Burden 232 'Its influence was quite considerable'; Cumming 34] 6. 'Nova Hispania, Nova Gallicia, Guatamala' [Burden 215 'The delineations of the coastlines here was the most accurate to date'] 7. 'Tierra Firma item Nuevo Reyno de Granada atque Popayan' 8. 'Peru' 9. 'Chili' 10. 'Provinciae sitae ad fretum Magellanis itemque fretum Le Maire' 11. 'Paraguay, o prov. de rio de la Plata: cum adiacentibus Provinciis, quas vocant Tucuman, et Sta. Cruz de la Sierra' 12. 'Provinciua de Brasil cum adiacentibus provinciis' 13. 'Guaiania sive provinciae intra rio de las Amazonas atque rio de Yviapari sive Orinoque' 14.
