        antique China map, with Korea and Japan - Mercator-Hondius.

      ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MAPS OF CHINA?China? Copper engraving made by Gerard Mercator published in Amsterdam in 1634 by Jodocus Hondius. Verso Dutch text. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 34 x 47 cm.Of the lands in the Far East, China was seen as the wealthiest and most mysterious and the Jesuit missionairies were among the first to make the dangerous journey.Geographically the map is an interesting array of fact and fiction. The map contains rudimentary geographical information, as there was very little actually known of the region during the early part of the seventeenth century. The two most prominent features of this survey are the portrayal of the peninsula of Korea and the charming illustration China?s great wall, a wonder of both ancient and modern worlds. There is also a note porporting to be the location of the palace of the emperor of China. Despite the odd elongation of the country, there are attemps to show various provinces, and seven great cities such as Canton are marked. The interior of China is dominated by several large lakes and the mythical Chiamai Lacus forms the headwaters of five large rivers in northeastern India. The northwest coastline of America appears in the upper top corner with a notation that refers to the Tartar hordes (and the deer) that inhabit the region.As ever in these early maps seamonsters stalk unwary ships and Hondius shows a Dutch merchant sailing on what is labeled as ?Chinensis Oceanus?. This ocean is portrayed with an elaborate and beautiful pattern which attempts to portray the movement of the waves. The islands of Japan also feature on this beautiful map, together with the portrayal of a Japanese craft. In one cartouche, a scene depicts the Japanese persecution of a Christian missionary, probably a reference to the martyrdoms in Nagasaki in 1597. It was this conflict that ultimately led to Japan becoming a closed country for several centuries. Although the cartouche of the map is neither overly large or ornate, it balances the map beautifully with an elegant strapwork design. Beneath it is another charactaristic vignette on maps of China of this early period, showing a wagon powered by sails which Marco Polo swore were in common use at the time.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 Janssonius, was prominent in Dutch cartography and competed with the emerging Blaeu family map business.When Jodocus Hondius acquired the copperplates of Gerard Mercator?s atlas, he prepared this map for inclusion in his Atlas sive Cosmographicae?, first published in 1606.This map is from the Dutch edition: Atlas ofte Afbeeldinghe vande gantse Weerldt, dated 1634.Price: ?2.950,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

        The History Of The World. In Five Bookes. [1634 Maps, Illustrations)

      Printed for Walter Burre,. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1634. Fourth Edition. Hardcover. Engravings; Frontis date 1614 but appears to conform to ESTC points for 1634. Armorial book plate of Baron De Loon. 8 folding maps and plans often with repairs. Includes "Chronologicall table". Presumed 4th edition. Written during his imprisonment in the Tower of London, the History . Of the World is Sir Walter Raleigh's most important prose work. The book, originally intended as a multivolume project, covers the creation of the world to 146BC and aims to show history as a moral exercise. Initially, the work was intended to serve as an educational tool for Henry, Prince of Wales (1594-1612) and includes numerous references to warfare, law and kingship. Although Raleigh was imprisoned for treason, the book, due to its association with the Prince was entered on the Stationer's list of approved books in 1611 but following Henry's death in 1612, Raleigh was forced to bring the project to conclusion. The work, consisting of five books nearing one million words in total, was eventually published in 1614. The cynical nature of the work, and the contempt to which Raleigh holds monarchs throughout history brought the book to the attention of James I and the Archbishop of Canterbury, George Abbot, who immediately demanded copies to be seized and publication banned. These actions only served to increase demand. 8.5 x 12.75" bound in contemporary leather and [sympathetically rebacked later]. [40], 184, 181-555, [1] 510, 515-669, [1] [2] [20].

        Cortona. Città Antichissima in Toscana Metropoli.

      1634. Roma, 1634 ("in Roma con licenza de Superiori e Privil. del Somo Pont.". Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 19,3 x 27,6 (alla lastra). Delineta da Piero Berrettini cortonese e disegnata da Giacomo Lauro Romano. In alto a sinistra stemma mediceo a sei palle; altri stemmi poco più in basso, sulla destra del foglio; legenda a quarantanove voci in due riquadri sempre sulla destra, nella parte bassa; in lastra, in basso a sinistra, "L. Lauro Romano f. 1694 . Borgo di S.Vincenzo"; poco più a destra "Piero Berettini Cortonese delin.". Il nome di Piero Berettini si riferisce a Pietro da Cortona, nato appunto come Pietro Berrettini (Cortona, 1569 - Roma, 1669), celebre pittore e architetto italiano. Non si conosce la data di nascita del Lauro, attivo prevalentemente in ambito romano come incisore, stampatore e conoscitore di antichità tra il 1583 e il 1645. Il fatto che egli firmasse le sue opere come "Jacobus Laurus Romanus" lascia presumere che fosse originario di Roma e, al contempo, rende improbabile l'ipotesi di una possibile provenienza dai Paesi Bassi (Bertolotti, p. 221). Nulla si conosce della sua formazione. La prima testimonianza documentaria che attesta la sua presenza a Roma, in cui è definito "intagliatore di rame romano", risale al 1583; mentre la sua prima stampa conosciuta è un "Tiberio con la daga" (o "Il gladiatore"), pubblicata da C. Duchet nel 1585. Nonostante il Lauro abbia affrontato tematiche storiche, mitologiche e devozionali, è noto soprattutto per la produzione di piante e vedute di città, a cominciare dalla veduta a volo d'uccello di Rocca Contrada (Arcevia), realizzata nel 1594 su disegno di E. Ramazzani (Anselmi). Nel 1599, basandosi su un disegno di Antonio Tempesta, incise e pubblicò una pianta di Roma, ristampata nel 1630, dal titolo "Septem Urbis ecclesiae cum earum reliquiis stationibus et indulgentiis". Negli anni 1630 - '45 il Lauro si dedicò alla pubblicazione di una serie di piante e descrizioni di città italiane e straniere in forma di piccoli opuscoli, alcuni dei quali furono raccolti nel 1639 sotto il titolo di "Heroico splendore delle città del mondo". In ognuno di essi il frontespizio è seguito dalla dedica a un personaggio illustre, dalla pianta corredata di legenda, spesso derivata dall'opera di predecessori, e infine da una breve descrizione della città. Nell'opuscolo intitolato "Historia dell'antichissima città di Cortona in Toscana" del 1639 (Roma, Lodovico Grignani) la pianta della città, datata 1634, reca, oltre alla firma del Lauro, quella di Pietro da Cortona (vedi anche rist. anast., 1981, con il titolo "Dell'origine della città di Cortona in Toscana e sue antichità"). La data di morte del Lauro non è nota. Egli risulta già deceduto nel 1650, quando il teologo S. Gregorowic scriveva al figlio Michele per esprimergli stima e affetto (Ashby, I, p. 365). Rara veduta planimetrica di Cortona. Margini un po' stretti oltre la battuta, un uniforme ingiallimento del foglio e due macchie insistite di umido sul lato sinistro del foglio, peraltro in buona impressione e in buono stato di conservazione.

Sur la page suivante le blason du commanditaire, Louis Hesselin est dessiné à la plume. Le texte est délicatement calligraphié en plusieurs couleurs : or, bleu, rouge et noir. En tête de chapitres on compte 6 lettrines historiées en couleur d'une très grande finesse. Reliure aux armes de Louis Hesselin (1602-1662), maître de la chambre aux deniers et surintendant des plaisirs du roi, bibliophile éclairé et collectionneur de tableaux et d'objets d'art. "Hesselin faisait grande figure à la cour vers le milieu du XVIIe siècle. C'était l'homme de goût par excellence, le personnage à la mode, l'organisateur obligé de toutes les fêtes. Très friand des belles curiosités, il avait fait de sa maison quai des Béthune, dans l'île Saint-Louis, un véritable musée. (...) "J'appelle son cabinet toute sa maison - dit le père Nicéron, auteur de "La perspective curieuse" - car véritablement elle est ornée et remplie de tant de raretés, on y voit tant de belles glaces, d'excellents miroirs, tant de rares peintures et de pièces à ravir pour les rondes bosses et les reliefs, tant de bons livres en toutes sortes de science, qu'on peut la dire l'abrégé de tous les cabinets de Paris." Hesselin mourut empoisonné par un domestique en 1664. (...) Les livres de sa bibliothèque se rencontrent difficilement; ils sont d'ordinaire reliés en veau écaille à ses armes." Bonnaffé, Dictionnaire des amateurs français au XVIIe siècle, 1884, p. 139) Louis Hesselin était un ami intime de Simon Vouet (1590-1649), peintre de Louis XIII. 21 feuillets sont restés blancs à la fin. Le dos de la reliure a été très bien resrtauré, quelques tâches sur les plats. Très bel exemplaire, dans une reliures d'un type peu commun.

        Keirs en kandelaer snutter en horen voor eenen nieuwe-jaer ver-eert aen alle lichts-gesinde.Bruges, widow of Joannes Clouwet, 1664. 12mo. 19th-century half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      - BNCI 12057; Scheurleer, Liedboeken, p. 74; STCV (3 copies); WorldCat (3 other copies). Rare first and only edition of a devotional and educational work written by Petrus Croon (1634-1682), a regular canon and literary author from Louvain, Belgium. The work was intended to serve as a gift for the new year, and contains emblematic poetry about candles, candlesticks, candlestands, candle-snuffers, and all things to do with candles, traditionally lit on New Year's Eve. The emblematic verses and songs are interwoven with explanatory text in prose. At the end a new song called "domp-horentje" (little candle-snuffer) is set to music and accompanied by printed musical notation. The charming little book proves that the text of emblematic verse can invoke images so well that no pictures are needed. And without engravings the New Year's gift would be less expensive for young people. As a convinced Roman Catholic, Croon wanted to educate and edify his readers by way of amusing verse, emblems, riddles, proverbs, and the like. With bookplate and owner's stamps. Only slightly browned, with a very small restoration on the lower outer corner of page 63/64. In very good condition.

        Dans les bois d'Andilly. (Auguste de Chatillon.) Morceau pour chant et Piano. Autograph musical manuscript signed in full and dated 1870. The complete work.

      Folio (330 x 255 mm). Title + 7 pp. Notated in ink on systems with 3 staves, one for solo voice ("Chant") and two for piano, on 16-stave paper with small octagonal blindstamp of Lard-Esnault, Paris to upper inner corners. With autograph dedication to head of title: "à Madame La Comtesse Mercy d'Argenteau." With text in French. A fair copy. Slightly browned, a bit heavier at margins; some show-through; occasional smudges. Closely trimmed at lower edge, just affecting notation in several instances. Published as a separate piece by Durand & SchÅ"newerk in Paris [PN D.S. & Cie. 1634], [1873]). "Godard composed works in most genres with the exception of church music, but ultimately he made his reputation as a composer of salon pieces for piano and of songs, albums of which were translated into English... His early promise did not really develop in his later works, although his early death from consumption meant that he had no chance to mature fully as a composer... His songs have considerable charm and one or two numbers from his operas have survived in the repertory in their own right." Richard Langham Smith in Grove Music Online. Louise Mercy d'Argenteau (born Marie-Clotilde-Elisabeth Louise de Riquet, 1837-1890), the dedicatee, became famous for her championship of Russian nationalist composers, especially Alexander Borodin and César Cui. Auguste de Chatillon (1808-1881) was a painter and poet.

      Toulouse, Pierre Bosc, 1634. ____ Première édition. Ce médecin de Castelnaudary, (1588-1658), auteur de nombreux ouvrages d'alchimie, soutient que les travaux d'Hercules sont des allégories contenant les arcanes de la philosophie hermétique. Michael Sendivogius faisait grand cas des écrits de P.J. Fabre. "In Hercules Piochymicus not only the twelve labors of Hercules are interpreted alchemically but also his begetting fifty sons from the fifty daughters of Thespius in a single night and his death from the poisoned robe of Nessus. The conclusion of the all work is an anathema to those who would have alchemy made perfectly plain to fools in words of one syllable, and a request that believers in transmutation await the appearance of his Panchymicus."

        The History Of The World. In Five Bookes. 1634

      Printed for Walter Burre, 1634 - Engravings; Frontis date 1614 but appears to conform to ESTC points for 1634. Armorial book plate of Baron De Loon. 8 folding maps and plans often with repairs. Includes "Chronologicall table". Presumed 4th edition. Written during his imprisonment in the Tower of London, the History . Of the World is Sir Walter Raleigh's most important prose work. The book, originally intended as a multivolume project, covers the creation of the world to 146BC and aims to show history as a moral exercise. Initially, the work was intended to serve as an educational tool for Henry, Prince of Wales (1594-1612) and includes numerous references to warfare, law and kingship. Although Raleigh was imprisoned for treason, the book, due to its association with the Prince was entered on the Stationer's list of approved books in 1611 but following Henry's death in 1612, Raleigh was forced to bring the project to conclusion. The work, consisting of five books nearing one million words in total, was eventually published in 1614. The cynical nature of the work, and the contempt to which Raleigh holds monarchs throughout history brought the book to the attention of James I and the Archbishop of Canterbury, George Abbot, who immediately demanded copies to be seized and publication banned. These actions only served to increase demand. 8.5 x 12.75" bound in contemporary leather and [sympathetically rebacked later]. [40], 184, 181-555, [1] 510, 515-669, [1] [2] [20].

      1634. ____ Très beau manuscrit entièrement réglé, avec un titre doré avec un bel encadrement à la plume : une tête d'angelot, deux cariatides et une tête de mort. Sur la page suivante le blason du commanditaire, Louis Hesselin est dessiné à la plume. Le texte est délicatement calligraphié en plusieurs couleurs : or, bleu, rouge et noir.

"Hesselin faisait grande figure à la cour vers le milieu du XVIIe siècle. C'était l'homme de goût par excellence, le personnage à la mode, l'organisateur obligé de toutes les fêtes. Très friand des belles curiosités, il avait fait de sa maison quai des Béthune, dans l'île Saint-Louis, un véritable musée. (...) "J'appelle son cabinet toute sa maison - dit le père Nicéron, auteur de "La perspective curieuse" - car véritablement elle est ornée et remplie de tant de raretés, on y voit tant de belles glaces, d'excellents miroirs, tant de rares peintures et de pièces à ravir pour les rondes bosses et les reliefs, tant de bons livres en toutes sortes de science, qu'on peut la dire l'abrégé de tous les cabinets de Paris." Hesselin mourut empoisonné par un domestique en 1664. (...) Les livres de sa bibliothèque se rencontrent difficilement; ils sont d'ordinaire reliés en veau écaille à ses armes." Bonnaffé, Dictionnaire des amateurs français au XVIIe siècle, 1884, p. 139) Louis Hesselin était un ami intime de Simon Vouet (1590-1649), peintre de Louis XIII. 21 feuillets sont restés blancs à la fin. Le dos de la reliure a été très bien resrtauré, quelques tâches sur les plats. Très bel exemplaire, dans une reliures d'un type peu commun. Olivier 1687, fer 1. ***** A delightful illustrated manuscript, on vellum, from the collection of the bibliophile and collector Louis Hesselin (1602-1662) with his arms on cover. In-4. [172 x 233 mm] Collation : 52 ff. Vélin vert, encadrement sur les plats avec fleurons d'angle et armes dorées sur fond noir au centre, tranches dorées. (Reliure de l'époque.).

The "best and most complete edition of Stevin's writings on scientific topics. [...] The work on statics is considered to be the first systematic treatise of mechanics and hydrostatics since Archimedes." (Robert & Trent)."First published at Leyden in 1594, the only known copy of the first edition was destroyed at Louvain during World War I" (Willems). Includes "not only his mathematical research, but also his works on statics and hydrostatics, geography, astronomy and fortifications.

An octavo edition of Stevin's work on arithmetic, also translated by Girard, was published by the Elseviers at Leiden in 1625" (Brunet). Very Good.

        Nouvelles pensées sur les causes de la lumière, du desbordement du Nil et de l'amour d'inclination....

      Paris: chez Pierre Rocolet, 1634. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 3 parts in 1 volume. 4to (220 x 164 mm). [24], 131 [1]; [2], 17 [1]; [12], 112 pp. Woodcut headbands and initials, separate half titles to all parts. Contemporary calf, boards paneled in gilt, spine with 5 raised bands richly gilt in compartments and with gilt-lettered label, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers (boards heavily scratched, corners repaired, foot of spine chipped). Text very little browned, occasional minor spotting, title-page torn affecting two letters restored and laid down on old paper, first two preliminary leaves repaired at gutter, small worm track to inner blank margin of final leaves, light dampstains mainly to upper corner, a few text corrections in ink. Provenance: Verdeil (inscribed on title-page). Still a fine, wide-margined copy. ----VERY RARE FIRST EDITION. Marin Cureau de La Chambre (1594-1669), largly known for his work in physiognomy, was personal physician to the Chancelier Seguier, who was his patron, and then to the King. He was consulted by Louis XIV as to questions of physiognomy, when new employees were being considered. The present work, a philosophical mixture about the causes of light, the flooding of the Nile, and the love of inclination is Le Chambre's earliest publication. Although this work is questionably from a scientific standpoint (Le Chambre considered light as a quality and attributed the Nile floods to the fermentation of nitre), it is nevertheless remarkable as it was written in French vernacular at a time when textbooks were written in Latin. It thus precedes Descarte's Discours de la Méthode by a few years. Very Good....

Prachtvoller und kräftiger Druck vor der Nummer und der Beschädigung der rechten unteren Plattenecke. Mit feinem Rändchen um die Plattenkante. – Bis auf eine dünne Stelle links oben und Reste alter Hinterklebung verso am Oberrand ausgezeichnet und frisch erhalten. Eines der wenigen Nachtstücke im 43 Blatt umfassenden graphischen Werk des Künstlers, das, wie man weiß, von der Landschaftsmalerei A. Elsheimers (1578-1610) beeinflußt ist. „Keine andere Radierung Claudes ist räumlich so eng begrenzt wie diese wie ein Fries angelegte Figurenszene. Der zeichnerische Stil mit eng gekräuselten und schraffierten Strichen erschwert die Lesbarkeit der Darstellung. Die symmetrisch verteilten Figuren und Tiere nehmen einen großen Platz ein. Darüber erscheinen die Landschaftselemente: ein rahmender, verknorpelter Baum im Vordergrund, ein Brückenbogen über der vorne sitzenden Frau, ein krönender Baum in der Mitte über der schreitenden Figur sowie ein beschränkter Ausblick mit einem flachen Hügel über den parallel gerichteten Rücken der Kuh und der Ziegen. Einige Formen spiegeln sich im Wasser. Vergleichbare Hirtenmotive erscheinen in Claudes frühen Hirtenlandschaften und im Album der Tierskizzen [.]" (zitiert aus: Ausst.

        Insectorum Sive Minimorum Animalium: Olim ab Edoardo Wottono, Conrado Gesnero, Thomaque Pennio inchoatum: Tandem Tho. Moufeti Londinatis opera sumptibusq; maximis concinnatum auctum, perfectum: Et ad vivum expressis Iconibus supra quingentis illustratum.

      Londini: Ex officina typographica Thom. Cotes, 1634 A fair copy of the first printing of Insectorum Theatrum, classed as 'fair' because the title page and final plate page are in facsimile. The title page is that of the 3rd issue with a single printer named, but the book itself is 1st issue with page numbering at p 48 corrected in manuscript. This work was the first book on entomology to be published in Britain, and, although credited largely to Thomas Moffet (1553-1604), began as part of Conrad Gesner's researches in the mid 1500's. Thomas Penny and Caspar Wolf continued the work after Gesner's death, and Moffet, who was a neighbour and friend of Penny's, rescued the manuscript after Penny's death. It was finally published after Moffet's death by Theodore Mayerne (cf Lisney - Bibliography of British Lepidoptera). This copy has contemporary boards, rebacked with a newer spine and title label. The binding is in very good clean condition: there is wear to the boards but the corners have been repaired. Newer endpapers have been provided and there is a bookplate of Paul Sokoloff, and a smaller plate of Basil Harley to the front pastedown. The facsmile title page is 3rd issue and has some staining. Contents: title page; dedication 10pp; index 1p; Preface 4pp; authorities 3pp finis; full page plate of beehive; text pp 1-175; blank; second book preface 1p; table 1p; text pp 179-326 Finis; 2 leaves of figures - 2nd leaf in facsimile. With decorative headpieces, tailpieces, initial capitals and engravings throughout. There are several pagination errors but the text is continuous: p 48 corrected by hand; 128-130; 149-134-151; 157-166-159; 169-174-171; 285-296. The contents have general brown toning and there is some old annotation. The paper is particularly fragile at the edges of early leaves, where there is some light staining, and there is a little paper repair to the preface, and to p 41 and 46. A scarce and important work.

Auréole latérale. (Wellcome - 1006)

      [Genève], [Pierre Albert], 1634.Petit in-8 de [56]-556-[4]p. bl., cartonnage de papier ancien, étiquette de papier au dos (XVIIIème). "Frédéric Spanheim (1600-1649) a publié sous ce titre, en 1634, une relation documentée des principaux événements survenus en Suisse de 1629 à 1634, en prise notamment avec les développements de la guerre de Trente Ans. Cet ouvrage a paru anonymement à Genève, imprimé par Pierre Albert, en [LVI]-556 p. in-8º, avec une carte de la Suisse en hors-texte; on connaît deux tirages de cette édition genevoise, l'un avec, l'autre sans adresse." J.-D. Candaux in Dictionnaire des journaux 1600-1789. Deux autres éditions paraîtront la même année, une à Paris, l'autre à Rouen. Notre exemplaire fait parti du tirage sans l'adresse, et n'a pas de carte, tout comme l'exemplaire de la BGE (BGE CPs 655), sans adresse et sans carte. Longtemps considéré comme le premier journal de Suisse romande, MM. Candaux et Chuard (Des journaux et des hommes) ont gentiment corrigé cette erreur imputable en premier à Gaspard Valette dans "La presse suisse", en 1896. Edition originale.

        The most ancient and famous history of the renowned Prince Arthur King of Britaine,

      London: by William Stansby, for Jacob Bloome,, 1634. Wherein is declared his Life and Death, with all his glorious Battailes against the Saxons, Saracens and Pagans, which (for the honour of his Country) he most worthily atchieved. As also, all the Noble Acts, and Heroicke Deeds of his Valiant Knights of the Round Table. Newly refined and published for the delight, and profit of the Reader. Quarto (183 x 131 mm). Contemporary or near contemporary calf, very expertly recased and rebacked preserving most of the original spine. Custom folding calf folding box. In three parts, each with separate title-page and woodcut frontispiece. Without the final blanks in parts I and II, as usual. Printed in black letter, with roman and italic prelims, headlines, rubrics and proper names. A little restoration to corners of binding, new endpapers, final four leaves repaired and partially restored (probably supplied from another copy), final leaf 2P4 with a few letters in pen facsimile, first frontispiece creased and reinforced at fore-edge, ink inscriptions on title page, some worming (mostly to margins and not affecting text), sheets browned, slight loss to fore-edge of A4 (second part), occasional inking over type, including at D2v (first part) where text is partly obscured by a spot of pale soiling, and some blacking out of text in a few places including at 2B1 and 2Fv (second part), leaf of manuscript notes ("In imitation of old Rhrime") tipped in at G2-G3 (first part), a very good copy with ample margins. Sixth edition, the earliest practically obtainable. Malory's Morte Darthur (the familiar title was accidentally given by its first printer, William Caxton, who mistook the name of its last section for the name of the whole), though in part a translation, is so woven together from a wide variety of sources that it is effectively an original work. Malory called what he wrote The Whole Book of King Arthur and his Noble Knights of the Round Table. As his title implies, he intended to retell in English the entire Arthurian story from authoritative accounts, which for him meant primarily the three major cycles of French Arthurian prose romance, although he knew many other Arthurian stories (including late medieval English alliterative poems) and drew on them for incidents, allusions, and minor characters that give his story additional solidity. Completed in prison by 1470, the Morte Darthur was first published by Caxton in 1485, reprinted by Wynken de Worde in 1498 and 1529, and by William Copland in 1557 and Thomas East in 1578. This sixth edition is the last of this early sequence and has the language modernized to Jacobean standards: that is, to Early Modern English.

        Keirs en kandelaer snutter en horen voor eenen nieuwe-jaer ver-eert aen alle lichts-gesinde.Bruges, widow of Joannes Clouwet, 1664. 12mo. 19th-century half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      BNCI 12057; Scheurleer, Liedboeken, p. 74; STCV (3 copies); WorldCat (3 other copies). Rare first and only edition of a devotional and educational work written by Petrus Croon (1634-1682), a regular canon and literary author from Louvain, Belgium. The work was intended to serve as a gift for the new year, and contains emblematic poetry about candles, candlesticks, candlestands, candle-snuffers, and all things to do with candles, traditionally lit on New Year's Eve. The emblematic verses and songs are interwoven with explanatory text in prose. At the end a new song called "domp-horentje" (little candle-snuffer) is set to music and accompanied by printed musical notation. The charming little book proves that the text of emblematic verse can invoke images so well that no pictures are needed. And without engravings the New Year's gift would be less expensive for young people. As a convinced Roman Catholic, Croon wanted to educate and edify his readers by way of amusing verse, emblems, riddles, proverbs, and the like. With bookplate and owner's stamps. Only slightly browned, with a very small restoration on the lower outer corner of page 63/64. In very good condition.

        The Historie of the World, commonly called the Naturall Historie. London, Adam Islip, 1634.

      1634. Folio (235 x 320 mm). 2 vols. in one. (58), 614, (42) pp. (12), 632, (86) pp. Elaborate woodcut device on title-page; woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemp. calf, spine in six compartments, tooled and lettered in gilt. Pliny's renowned Natural History in its second publication in English (repeating, with corrections, the 1601 first publication), translated by Philemon Holland, the greatest translator of the Elizabethan age. The "Naturalis Historia" is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available to the author. Pliny claims to be the only Roman ever to have undertaken such a work. It comprised 37 books in 10 volumes and covered over 20.000 facts on topics including the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy , geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Some technical advances he discusses are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding corn. Much of what he wrote about has been confirmed by archaeology. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf [...] Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls [... He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised [...] The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 holds a chapter that gives the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. - Binding rubbed; front hinge splitting. Includes the final printed leaf in vol. 2, containing the publisher's advertisement to the reader that all errors have been corrected in the present edition and the errata leaf (included in the same position in 1601) has become unnecessary rather than having been mistakenly omitted. Some slight browning and brownstaining, but an excellent copy removed in 1973 from the Royal Meteorological Society (Symons Bequest, 1900) with their bookplate on the front pastedown. STC 20030. Cf. Pforzheimer 496 (1601 ed.).

        Gulistan ou l'empire des roses. [...] Traduit en François par André du Ryer. Paris, Anthoine de Sommaville, 1634.

      1634. Small 8vo. (8), 166 pp. (lacks final blank). Contemp. brown full calf with cover borders and edges gilt. Spine gilt. Marbled endpapers. Rare first European edition of Sa'adi's famous "Gulistan", a work in a similar tradition as the Mirrors for Magistrates. The translator, André du Ryer, was a French orientalist and consul in the Levant, notably in Alexandria and Constantinople. He returned to France in 1630 and became royal interpreter in oriental languages. He also published a Turkish grammar in 1630 and a translation of the Qur'an in 1647. Sa'adi is the most widely known Persian author in the West, and his "Gulistan" (Rose Garden), completed in 1258, was the first Persian literary work to be translated into any European language. This and later translations established Sa'adi's reputation among Western writers and inspired La Fontaine, Diderot, Voltaire, Renan, Herder, and Goethe. The present translation remained incomplete; the first complete version in a western language was the edition of the text with a Latin translation published in Amsterdam in 1651. - Spine professionally repaired in places. Provenance: Gigault de la Favière, 1768 (signature on title); Colegio de Neustra Señora de Guadalupe, Lima (blindstamp to title); Jules Becker (ink stamp on first free endpaper). Last in the library of Swedish antiquarian bookdealer Björn Löwendahl (1941-2013). Zenker, BO I, p. 60, no. 491. Schwab 1009. Brunet V, 25. Cioranescu XVII, 27953.

        [ÎLES de LÉRINS] Description du Cap de la Croix, isles Ste Marguerite et St Honorat.

      [1634]. 523 x 373 mm. Très rare et belle carte figurant les îles Sainte-Marguerite et Saint-Honorat, formant l'archipel de Lérins dans la baie de Cannes. Elle est ornée d'une grande rose des vents, de navires et d'un monstre marin. Cannes est orthographiée avec un seul n, l'actuel Cap de la Croisette est appelé Cap de la Croix, tandis que le Golfe Juan est dénommé Le Gourian. L'îlot de la Tradelière est appelé terre de lierre, et l'île Saint-Ferréol Saint Fériol. Sur l'île Sainte-Marguerite figurent le fort de Monterey, orthographié Monteraij, le fort de Ragon ou Aragon, et le Fort Royal, plus souvent appelé Fort Vauban, construit sous Richelieu pour la défense des côtes de Provence. L'emplacement du Fort Royal est aujourd'hui occupé par le Musée de la Mer. Sur l'île Saint-Honorat, on peut voir le monastère fortifié de Lérins. Lors de la Guerre de Trente Ans, les îles de Lérins seront occupées par les Espagnols entre 1635 et 1637, puis reprises par les Français en 1637. Le nord est placé au bas de la carte. Ingénieur-géographe du roi, Christophe Tassin, connu fréquemment à tort sous le prénom de Nicolas, s'installa comme graveur à Paris où il produisit des collections variées de petites cartes et plans. Ses petits atlas oblongs sur la France, la Suisse, l'Espagne et l'Allemagne ont fait sa renommée. Bel exemplaire aux contours aquarellés à l'époque. Pastoureau, TASSIN II A.
