COMMERCIAL TRADING - CURRENCY)
Antwerp: Hieronymus Verdussen, 1633. 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 a … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Treaty of Madrid]
Lisbon: Antonio Aluarez, 1633. Vignette on titlepage. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards. Later 17th-century ownership signature on titlepage. Very good. 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. An important treaty, with substantial economic consequences. Scarce. Not in EUROPEAN AMERICANA nor on OCLC. DAVENPORT 35. PALAU 43236.

Langham, William.
Printed by Thomas Harper, 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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'.

HONDIUS, Henricus (1597-1651]
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

HONDIUS, Henricus (1597-1651)
Amsterdam: Henricus Hondius, 1633. Copper engraving, French text on verso. Good condition, with small expert marginal repairs, thinning of paper to small areas at the upper left and right of the verso. A classic, early cartographic representation of Virginia: Hondius's version of John Smith's important map. This is the fifth of the many derivatives of Captain John Smith's map of Virginia, the earliest true map of the first permanent English colony in America. This map stays close in content to the Hondius-Blaeu map of 1629, which was in turn based on the first state of the Smith map. The early Dutch versions of the map were the primary disseminators of information on Virginia throughout the European continent until the closing decades of the seventeenth century. The map is beautifully ornamented with the Royal Arms of Britain (colonial rulers of Virginia) , a standing figure of an Indian, and an inset vignette of "King Powhatan," the father of Pocahantas, sitting in state in his lodge. Powhatan was the powerful ruler of about thirty Algonquian tribes in the region, the strongest single group of Indians on the Atlantic coast. He is said to have had forty bodyguards and 100 wives. His rulership consisted of his providing military leadership and protection in exchange for tribute from the individual tribes. The ceremony at which Captain John Smith thought he was saved by Powhatan's daughter Pocahontas was apparently a ritual in which Smith agreed on behalf of his tribe, the whites, to submit to Powhatan's leadership. Smith, of course, completely misunderstood the e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Grotius, Hugo,
Lugd. Batavorum (Leiden), ex officina Elzeviriana 1633. Mit einem gestochenen Frontispiz, 308 Seiten 12°, braun mellierte alte Pp mit gedrucktem Rückentitel SEHR SELTENER TITEL IN EINEM SCHÖNEN FESTEN EXEMPLAR mit schönen gestochenen Initialen und herrlichen Kopf- und Schluss-Vignetten sowie einem sauberen alten Bibliotheksstempel. Hugo Grotius war einer der wichtigsten Rechtsgelehrten des 17. Jahrhunderts und galt als ein Wunderkind. Bereits als 12-Jähriger trat er in die Universität Leiden ein und lenkte schon frühzeitig die Aufmerksamkeit des großen J. J. Scaliger auf sich. Er promovierte zum Doktor der Rechte und verfasste 1604 als 21-Jähriger aus Anlass eines Rechtsfalles, bei dem es um das Eigentum an einer portugisischen Galeone ging, die in der Meerenge von Malakka gekapert wurden war, eine Abhandlung mit dem Titel \"De jure praedae\" (\"Über das Recht am Raube\"). Es enthält bereits die Grundgedanken seines späteren Hauptwerkes, blieb aber bis 1868 unveröffentlicht. Lediglich ein Kapitel daraus wurde 1609 zunächst anonym unter dem Titel \"Mare Liberum\" (\"Das freie Meer\") veröffentlicht. Die katholische Kirche indiziert \"Mare liberum\" umgehend, da es die päpstliche Weltordnung untergrub. Grotius formulierte hier einen revolutionären neuen Grundsatz, indem er erklärte, die Meere seien internationale Gewässer und alle Nationen hätten das Recht, sie zur Handelsschifffahrt zu nutzen. 1925 schrieb er binnen eines Jahres sein Meisterwerk \"De jure Belli ac Pacis\" (Über das Kriegs- und Friedensrecht), das ihn in ganz Europa berühmt machte. Dieses Werk, das für die s … [Click Below for Full Description]
