O. O. (Amsterdam?) 1635. Seltene erste Ausgabe dieses wichtigen Werkes, elf Jahre nach Böhmes Tod erschienen. Jakob Böhme (1575-1624) war "ein äußerlich unscheinbarer Handwerker, dessen mystische Weltschau eine Revolution in der Philosophie seines Zeitalters" hervorrief. "Ein Druckverbot seitens der lutherischen Orthodoxie versuchte der rapiden Verbreitung seiner Ideen Einhalt zu bieten und erreichte tatsächlich, daß B's Einfluß zu seinen Lebzeiten – ja noch bis zum Einsetzen des Pietismus – auf deutschem Boden kaum spürbar war. Anders in den Niederlanden und England, . wo B's Anhänger bereits nach Tausenden zählten" (Dünnhaupt). Von Abraham Willemsz van Beverland herausgegeben, der die Vorrede mit „E. L. Mitburger Von dieser Welt" unterzeichnet. „The book contains the core of Böhme's philosophy" (Faber du Faur). – Titel mit hinterlegtem Ausschnitt (kein Textverlust), Vorsätze mit zeitgenöss.

BLAEU, JOAN
Aethiopia Inferior, vel Exterior". Copper engraving first published in 1635 by the house of Blaeu in Amsterdam. Size: 38,5 x 49,5 cm. With original hand colouring. Attractive map of Southern Africa, shortly before the first Dutch settlement in the region. The map was largely based on Portuguese exploration, both real and imagined. The area shown is from the Congo River basin around the Cape of Good Hope and up the east coast as far as northern present-day Mozambique. A good number of coastal names are given, including Mozambique Island which was an important re-supply point for ships sailing to India and the East. To the north just below the equator, we see one of the lakes described by Claudius Ptolomaeus in the 2nd century AD, thought to be the source of the Nile. Information on the interior is sparse, reflecting the lack of knowledge the Europeans had about the interior of Africa. Unlike many other maps which are filled in with fanciful or fictitious information, this map more accurately portrays actual knowledge. This was the standard map of South Africa throughout the 17th century after which many maps were copied. The cartouche depicts two native Africans holding up an ox skin bearing the map title. At their feet are monkeys and tortoises. Price: Euro850,-

BLAEU, Willem Janszoon.
Amsterdam, c.1635, French text edition. Fine original colour. 410 x 540mm. Shirley describes this world map as a 'classic single-sheet world map on Mercator's projection. celebrated as one of the supreme examples of the map maker's art'. It set the standard for vignette borders, with allegorical figures representing the sun, moon & known planets along the top, the Four Elements on the left, the Four Seasons on the right, and depictions of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World along the bottom. There are decorative cartouches for the title, dedication and explanation, two spheres for the north and south poles, compass roses and numerous galleons and sea monsters. Engraved by Josua van den Ende and originally issued separately in 1606 (under Blaeu's original name of Janszoon), this example comes from the fourth state, which dates from its use in Blaeu's atlases from 1630, with the first French edition issued 1635. As the earlier states were separate issues they are increasingly difficult to find. SHIRLEY: World 255. [Attributes: First Edition]

Pietro TESTA detto "Il Lucchesino" (Lucca 1611 - Roma 1650)
Acquaforte,1635-1637 circa, firmata in lastra alla fine della dedica. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con l'indirizzo di Giovan Gioacomo de Rossi. Magnifica prova, impressa su su carta vergata coeva, con ampi margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. L'incisione rappresenta il secondo sogno di Giuseppe, narrato, come il primo, nel vangelo di Matteo (2,13). La spiegazione del soggetto è fornita dallo stesso Testa nella dedica al suo mecenate Cassano del Pozzo: un angelo nuovamente appare in sogno a Giuseppe per comunicargli la strage degli innocenti ordinata da Erode, e invitarlo a fuggire in Egitto. Nella scena sono però combinati altri temi: è rappresentato Gesù che bambino, accanto alla Vergine, abbraccia la croce, sorretta dalla Maddalena e dagli angeli, mentre intorno sono raffigurati gli Innocenti. Sulla croce, la figura di Dio padre e una colomba, simbolo dello spirito santo, a completare così la santissima Trinità. In questo modo, attraverso l'espediente del sogno, sono ricordate tutte le fasi salienti del Vangelo: l'Annunciazione, la Strage degli Innocenti, la Fuga e la Crocifissione. L'interpretazione della Fuga in Egitto come inizio della via crucis non era inusuale negli scritti cristiani dell'epoca, in cui i bambini uccisi da Erode veniva considerati come i primi martiri in nome di Cristo. Una simile combinazione di temi si riscontra in due versioni della Fuga in Egitto di Nicolas Poussin, dipinte rispettivamente nel 1629 e nel 1634. Questo lavoro del Lucchesino, appartiene a un gruppo di invenzioni della maturità che comprendono Venere e Adone ma anche l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked with original spine laid down, later red morocco label, triple blind rule to covers, red edges, metal clasps (re-attached). Early English vellum manuscript document used as binder's waste.

First edition of a "classic of maritime law" (JFB), originally drafted around 1619 at the request of James I for an Anglo-Dutch conference on fishing rights. Among the Dutch representatives was Hugo Grotius, whose Mare Liberum of 1609 had proposed that the seas were free to all. The English lawyer and antiquarian Selden's purpose was to establish the contrary, that "the lordship of the circumambient ocean belongs to the crown of Great Britain as an indivisible and perpetual appendage". The treatise was not published at the time, as some passages were felt to be potentially offensive to the King of Denmark, to whom James was deeply in debt at the time. In 1635, seeking to impress Charles I, Selden revised h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Collation: a12 (blank first leaf, ff. 1-11), b10 (instead of b12, lacking b6-7: ff. 13[!]-24 lacking 18-19), c10 (25-34), d8 (37[!]-44), e12 (45-56), f10 (57-66), g12 (67-78), h12 (79-90), j12 (91-102), k12 (103-114), l8 (115-122). Contemporary suede leather binding. Edges sprinkled red. A fascinating manual of rhetoric, with chapters on "how to speak well" ("eloquence consists of three things: invention, disposition, and elocution"); "sources of metaphors"; "the four sections of a speech (introduction, narration, confirmation, epilogue)"; enunciation and voice; the best posture and gestures for a speaker; how to dispose one's hands, arms, and feet; relevant literature by Greek, Latin, and other authors, etc.: notes such as would have been taken in the early modern rhetoric course, which formed part of the basic "trivium" division of a classical education. - Trimmed before binding, affecting some glossal notes. The leaf numbers were obviously added quire by quire, before sewing, which explains some skipped leaf numbers (quires b and d start with 13 and 37 in error, assuming the previous quires to have ended in 12 and 36, respectively), though leaves 18 and 19 appear to be missing. - From the collection of the French theologian Abbé Abraham Girard (1635-93), whose library was dispersed by auction in 2018.

BLAEU, Willem Janszoon.
Amsterdam, c.1635, French text edition. Fine original colour. 410 x 540mm. Shirley describes this world map as a 'classic single-sheet world map on Mercator's projection. celebrated as one of the supreme examples of the map maker's art'. It set the standard for vignette borders, with allegorical figures representing the sun, moon & known planets along the top, the Four Elements on the left, the Four Seasons on the right, and depictions of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World along the bottom. There are decorative cartouches for the title, dedication and explanation, two spheres for the north and south poles, compass roses and numerous galleons and sea monsters. Engraved by Josua van den Ende and originally issued separately in 1606 (under Blaeu's original name of Janszoon), this example comes from the fourth state, which dates from its use in Blaeu's atlases from 1630, with the first French edition issued 1635. As the earlier states were separate issues they are increasingly difficult to find. SHIRLEY: World 255. [Attributes: First Edition]

ABPC/RBH list only one other copy in the past 60 years. “Beginning with the plane-projection of the celestial sphere on the horizon of London, . Wells describes the construction of seventeen dials, classified according to the system of Clavius’s Gnomonics, the calculation being made with the help of spherical trigonometry and logarithms. The astronomical method of finding the meridian is described, and the author makes a passing reference to ‘motion of variation’ recently found out which now makes it uncertain to set a dial with a magnetic needle. He acknowledges assistance on many points from Henry Briggs and uses Edward Wright’s tables of solar declination. The book was written for friends in 1622, when Gunter read it and begged him to print it. The matter lapsed when these old friends died, but Gellibrand renewed the request in 1634, and wrote an historical Preface to the book” (Taylor, p. 351). John Wells (d. 1635) was a man of considerable importance in the seventeenth century: he was a close friend of Briggs, Gellibrand and Gunter, assisted Briggs with the construction his tables of logarithms, and performed with Gellibrand and Gunter the measurements that led to the discovery of magnetic variation (published by Gellibrand in the same year as the present work). This is an early issue, without … [Click Below for Full Description]

Unknown master after Rembrandt (1606-1669) and Govaert Flinck (1615-1660) [and Georg Friedrich Schmidt (1712-1775)] ]
"Etching in red ink after a painting by Rembrandt and workshop, likely Govaert Flinck, from ca. 1635, now in Washington at the National Gallery of Art (inv. 1940.1.13) The description of the attire reads: ""In this imposing half-length image, a bearded man wearing an elaborate, bejeweled turban stares out at the viewer, his features strongly modeled by light streaming in from the left. A fur-lined cape, loosely clasped at the neck with a gold chain, covers his shoulders. His right hand grasps the sash that wraps around his waist, while his other hand rests on a wooden staff. An aigrette, a type of pin with a tuft of ornamental bird feathers that was a standard part of Ottoman attire, secures a heavy gold chain on the man's turban."" Rather, this impression might actually be after another print by Georg Friedrich Schmidt, who portrayed the figure as it was painted by Rembrandt & co. (see impression at the British Museum (inv. 1838,1215.280). Our etching is in the same direction as the painting, whereas Schmidt is mirrored. Therefore, it is likely that this anonymous master worked from this latter to realize this vivid portrait. The plate has been cut within marks and pasted on a colorful mat, with concentric drawn frames in brown and light grey ink and wash. Below, is a collector's mark. It belonged to Alexander Gibson Hunter, a French art dealer from the first half of the nineteenth century (L.2306)."."Etching on paper in red ink; trimmed within plate; total: 100 x 80 mm; some smudges due to handling, otherwise in good condition.
