Als ook des selfs krachten en manier van ingeven. Den vierden druk ...Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1690. 12mo. With an engraved title-page by Jan Luyken, showing the interior of an apothecary.

      Daems & Vandewiele, Noord- en zuidned. stedelijke pharmacopeeën, p. 58 (1 copy); V. Eeghen & V.d. Kellen 486; STCN (same copy, lacking frontispiece). Rare fourth edition of a Dutch translation of the 1636 Amsterdam Pharmacopoea. Unlike the original Latin edition, the Dutch translation not only lists ingredients, but also provides recipes to prepare the medicines. The numbers for quantities, as the publisher notes in the foreword, are spelled out to avoid any (fatal) problems arising from typesetting errors. A list of medical titles printed and sold by the publisher appears on the final page.The original Latin Pharmacopoea Amstelredamensis, the first Dutch pharmacopoeia, with recipes for nearly 200 medicines, was compiled anonymously by Nicolaes Tulp (1593-1674) by order of the city of Amsterdam, to serve as an official legal standard for the correct preparation of numerous medicines. Several cities in the southern Low Countries and Germany, and even London, had produced pharmacopoeias before any Dutch city and Tulp based his on those published in Augsburg, Cologne and London, primarily on the 1622 edition of the Pharmacopoea Augustana (providing about 85% of the content), with some material from the 1627 Dispensatorium Coloniense and the 1627 edition of the Pharmacopoea Londinensis.Browned and spotted throughout, with a few small holes and with a large water stain in the lower margin. The binding soiled, with a water stain at the foot of the boards and a crack at the foot of the spine. Quire F loose in binding. A fair copy.

         Tractuum Borussiae, circa Gedanum et Elbingam.

      Artist: Janssonius Johann ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1636 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restoration at centerfold; - size (in cm): 41 x 48; - description: Map shows the cities of Danzig, Marienburg and Elbing with the Baltic sea.; - vita of the artist: "Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

         Machiavels Discourses. upon [sic] the first Decade of T. Livius

      London: by Thomas Paine for William Hills and Daniel Pakeman,, 1636. translated out of the Italian; With some marginall animadversions noting and taxing his errours. By E[dward]. D[acres]. Duodecimo (142 x 82 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked to style. With first and last blanks A1 and Ee12; sig. B1 cancelled, as usual, the correct text printed on preceding a11–12. Armorial bookplate of H. C. R. P. Combe. Light marginal dampstaining, paper flaw in blank lower outer corner of T1, small paper loss at fore-edge margin of 2B2 slightly entering rule border, a little tight in the gutter (seemingly inevitable in this book), a very good copy. First edition in English of Machiavelli's Discorsi sopra la prima deca di Tito Livio (1531). Machiavelli's works had been circulated in manuscript and widely discussed in England, but not published until the breakdown of press censorship in the period leading up to the Civil War. This edition was followed in 1640 by the same translator's version of The Prince. "Machiavelli founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind – it should be remembered that a parallel work to 'The Prince' was his historical essay on the first ten books of Livy" (PMM 63). STC notes two variants of the title, with no precedence between them: in the present variant, the word "animadversions" is printed in italic; in the other, it is printed in roman.

         The Description and Use of the Sector, Crosse-staffe, & Other Instruments. VVith a Canon of Artificiall Sines and Tangents, to a Radius of 10000.0000. parts, and the vse thereof in Astronomie, Navigation, Dialling, and Fortification, &c. The second Edition much augmented

      Printed by William Iones for Iames Bowler 1636 - with additional engraved title-page (which extends the title further), engraved frontispiece, diagram on printed title, 2 woodcut plates, and 2 printed slips, 1 folding, bound in, numerous diagrams and illustrations in the text, some full-page, others nearly so, slightly browned, a few patches of minor staining, one leaf with 2 small holes, 1 in the fore-margin, 1 with minor loss to text, [xii], 78, [2], 79-113, 116-163, [1]; 266; 56, 59-64, 67-75, [1]; [114], 4to, contemporary calf, double blind fillets on sides, on the upper cover, at the outer upper corner there is a sequence of numbers from 1 to 10 blocked in blind, descending vertically, the sequence repeated half way through below (an unusual feature), repeated, one line only, on lower cover, rebacked, corners and edges repaired, fly-leaf at the end ruled in columns in red, small blue paper label inside front cover with a name scratched out, much later pencil annotations and workings in pencil in a few places. A good, large, complete copy of the second and best edition of Gunter's collected writings (called The Works in the third edition of 1653), edited by Samuel Foster, with additions, including a chapter on the mathematics of fortification, not published before. The volume is in four separately numbered parts, comprising the Booke of the Sector, Booke of Crosse-stafte, Use of the Canon and Table, and the Canon Triangulorum, the last with a separate title page. Waters says the Booke of the Sector 'must rank with Eden's translation of Cortes's Arte de Navegar and Wright's Certaine Errors as one of the three most important English books ever published for the improvement of navigation . . . [Gunter] opened up. . . an entirely new field, that of arithmetical navigation' (Art of Navigation, p. 359). And further, 'Gunter's exposition of finding a ship's position by calculation since it was eventually published to the world, must be classed as one of the most influential scientific works on navigation.' 'Easily the most substantial of Gunter's works was The Description and Use of the Sector, the Crosse-Staffe and other such Instruments (1623) which explained instruments which he had designed. Apart from the two mentioned in the title it also included an astronomical quadrant and a 'cross-bow'—an alternative to the backstaff used by sailors for solar altitude measurements. Although this instrument did not become popular the others all did, in one form or another. The Gunter sector was a much more complex instrument than Thomas Hood's. It allowed calculations involving square and cubic proportions, and carried various trigonometrical scales. Moreover it had a scale for use with Mercator's new projection of the sphere, making this projection more manageable for navigators who were only partially mathematically literate. The sector was sold as a navigational instrument throughout the seventeenth century and survived in cases of drawing instruments for nearly three hundred years. The most striking feature of the cross-staff, distancing it from other forms of this instrument, was the inclusion of logarithmic scales. This was the first version of a logarithmic rule, and it was from Gunter's work that logarithmic slide rules were developed, instruments that remained in use until the late twentieth century' (ODNB). A scarce book anyway, it is often found incomplete (e.g. the Macclesfield copy). The matter is not helped by the fugitive nature of the inserts (sometimes called plates, but really inserts), and the fact that one of the plates is a volvelle, intended to be cut out. For some reason, the additional engraved title is sometimes missing. Several of the text illustrations extend well beyond the boundary of the text, and are therefore liable to cropping. In this copy only one if these is touched, and that barely. (ESTC S103555; see Taylor p. 196)

         Naufragio da nao N. Senhora de Belem feyto na terra do Natal no Cabo de Boa Esperança,

      1636 - & varios sucessos que teve o Capitao Joseph de Cabreyra, que nella passou à India no anno de 1633. First edition. Small 4to. Very good in period style half calf. 69, [3]pp. Lisbon, Lourenco Craesbeeck Impressor d'El Rey, Rare. Joseph de Cabreyra was Admiral of the fleet while in command of Nossa Senhora de Belem which was wrecked off the coast of the Cape of Good Hope in 1635 returning to Portugal from India. Among the passsengers was Father Jerome Lobo, who had spent the previous nine years as a missionary in Abyssinia. He was to report on the collapse of the Ethiopian mission and the subsequent expulsion of the clergy. This account relates not only the disaster but his subsequent securing of provisions such as rice, biscuit and meat, as well as despatches from the King, from the wreck in heavy seas off the South African coast. They were advised by a previous survivor of a shipwreck of the dangers of travelling overland and so Cabrerya built two boats from material gathered on the shore. They sailed from the Natal coast in January 1636, rounding the Cape successfully before reaching Luanda in Angola two months later. The work was reproduced in the third volume of Gomes de Brito's collection of early shipwreck in 1735. This is the original edition with the licence leaf at the end. OCLC locates 7 copies. No copies of this work have appeared at auction in the past 30 years. Mendelssohn, p242; cf Howgego I, L138. [Attributes: First Edition]

A suite of etched designs of escutcheons and cartouches destined for coats of arms, intended to provide sculptors, painters, and engravers, with models and ideas. They are reminiscent of Bernini, and anticipate certain models of Pietro da Cortona and Francesco Borromini. 1 [img-2609-left-large_default] [img-2610-left-large_default] [img-2611-left-large_default] Apprenticed in Cortona with his father Mariotto Radi (1563-1624), a sculptor and capo mastro, Bernardino travelled to Rome with his elder brother Agostino, and from 1611 was employed by Scipione Borghese carving fountains, portals, and ornaments (opera di scarpello) in the palazzo and gardens on Montecavallo. In 1614, Agostino married Giuditta Bernini, daughter of Pietro and sister of Gian Lorenzo, and afterwards he and Bernardino became 'collaboratori fissi dei cantieri berniniani', exe­cuting balustrades, fountains, and architectural ornaments in the gardens of the Belvedere, Borgo, Montecavallo, and Villa Pinciana. 2 In April 1622, the brothers collaborated on the tomb of Paul v in Santa Maria Maggiore; shortly afterward, they parted company: Agostino continued working in Rome as a sculptor, while Bernardino devoted himself more to architectural projects, initially as 'soprintendente delle fabbriche' of the port and fortress at Civitavecchia (1624-1626), then in Cortona (1629), and afterwards in Florence. Bernardino's activities in Florence include work on the twin fountains in Piazza SS. Annunziata, a project for the façade of the Duomo, an aqueduct to control the Mungone river, the front façade of the Palazzo of the Padri delle Missioni in Piazza Frescobaldi, the cloister of the Canonici Regolari di Sant'Jacopo sopr'Arno, and the church of SS. Cristina e Agostino (completed after his death by Gherardo Silvani). 3 In Rome, Bernardino had expressed his passion for designing decorative architectural ornaments in two collections of prints, designs for funerary monuments and for doorways, both published in 1619, dedicated respectively to his patrons Stefano Pignatelli 4 and Scipione Borghese. 5 In Florence, in 1636, he published the present collection of etched designs, dedicated to Cardinal Gian Carlo de' Medici, second son of Grand Duke Cosimo ii of Tuscany. The plates are models for escutcheons adorning buildings and monuments; many are embellished with ecclesiastical insignia; all are blank, with the exception of the first which displays the Medici coat of arms (sei palle). A selection of the plates was copied by Hierosme (or Jérôme) David (c. 1600-after 1670), and published in Rome by Calisto Ferrante, in 1649. 6 Provisional census ● Berlin, Kunstbibliothek - Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, os 561 (lost 1939-1945) 7 ● Brussels, Biblio­thèque Royale de Belgique, V.5342 (19 plates) 8 ● Florence, Biblioteca nazionale centrale, magl 1.4.151 (41 plates) 9 ● Leiden, Universiteit, Bibliotheca Thysiana, Thysia 145:12 (43 plates) 10 ● London, Victoria & Albert Museum, 27833:1-8 (8 plates) 11 ● Lucera (Foggia), Biblioteca comu­nale Ruggero Bonghi, Dep 26 8 15 12 ● Modena, Biblioteca estense universitaria, Alfa A.4.19/3 13 ● New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Elisha Whittelsey Collection, 1948.145 14 ● Paris, Bibliothèque nationale de France, H d 46 (incomplete?) 15 ● Paris, Bibliothèque de l'Institut national d'histoire de l'art, collections Jacques Doucet, Fol Res 615 (37 plates, without title) 16 ● Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, AAA III.23563 1 17 ● Rio de Janeiro, Biblioteca Nacional, Arm. 11.1.3 Iconografia (43 plates) 18 ● Stockholm, Kungliga biblioteket, Rar: 161 E b Fol.

Inserted at the end of the volume by a recent owner are two drawings associated with a series of twenty-four etchings of decorative cartouches and ornaments, designed and probably also etched by Agostino Mitelli, and published at Bologna by Agostino Parisini with a dedication to Francesco Maria Zambeccari, in 1636. 21 This was Agostino Mitelli's first series of prints, issued before he left Bologna for Florence, where he was engaged from 1637-1641 in decorating three rooms of the Palazzo Pitti. The sequence of editions suggests strong appetite for Mitelli's designs; their influence still awaits investigation. 22 The original matrices were restruck at Rome by Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi, and his heirs, from about 1648 until after 1735; 23 an edition jointly by De Rossi and Sebastiano Zecchini of Perugia appeared in 1653 as an epithalamium for Anna Colonna, married in Rome on 24 February to Don Paolo Vincenzo Spinola. 24 A set of exact copies was made in Paris and distributed there by Claude Roussel, Pierre Mariette, and later Gabriel Huquier. 25 Meanwhile, a complete set of copies, in reverse, dedicated to Francesco Bandini by Giambattista Paganelli, was distributed in Bologna. 26 [img-2612-left-large_default] Drawing a [img-2614-left-large_default] Comparative illustration Plate from edition Bologna, Parisini, 163627(same direction as our drawing) [img-2615-left-large_default] Comparative illustrationPlate from edition Paris, Mariette, [undated]28(reversed) [img-2613-left-large_default] Drawing b [img-2616-left-large_default] Comparative illustrationPlate from edition Rome, De Rossi, 165329(same direction as our drawing) [img-2617-left-large_default] Comparative illustrationPlate from edition Paris, Mariette, [undated]30(reversed) Other drawings associated with this print series are in Kassel 31 and New York. 32 1.

         Traduccion latina que ha hecho el Doctor Señonqui en Lengua Castellana, de un tratado que compuso en Latina Guillermo Vandevoy. E. C. D. D.

      Impressa en Valanson (Madrid?), por Jacome Corifio, 1636. - in-4. 99ff. (dont 98 numérotés). (1f.blanc). Plein vélin souple de l'époque. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage curieux de Juan de Quiñones, magistrat madrilène de la cour de Philippe IV. Ce violent réquisitoire contre les Français est présenté sous la forme d'un traité historique qui disserte sur les mœurs françaises, les relations de l'Espagne et de la France depuis le 14e siècle, ainsi que sur la supposée alliance des Français avec les Turcs pendant le siècle d'or. C'est un livre obscur à plusieurs égards. D'une part, le lieu d'impression et le nom de l'imprimeur ne sont répertoriés nulle part et paraissent avoir été inventés. D'autre part, certaines sources attribuent l'ouvrage au médecin hollandais Guillaume Van Den Bossche, mais cette hypothèse semble être erronée et le nom de Vandevoy indiqué au titre paraît n'être qu'une fantaisie. L'ouvrage contient deux curieuses gravures à l'eau forte de Francisco Navarro, graveur espagnol au sujet duquel Bénézit indique qu'on connaît de lui "des planches d'armoiries parues en 1632 à Madrid et le titre pour un ouvrage militaire publié en 1642. Il a également gravé des titres pour divers ouvrages d'architecture et des portraits d'Horace, Perse et Juvénal". Juan de Quiñones a laissé plusieurs ouvrages remarquables, tous écrits en espagnol, parmi lesquels un traité sur les sauterelles (1620), un discours contre les gitans (1631), une relation des éruptions du Vésuve (1632) et un curieux traité de minéralogie sur le charbon (1634). Le présent volume est une véritable rareté. Nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'un seul exemplaire dans les collections américaines (à l'Hispanic Society of America de New York, cf. N.U.C.) et seulement deux exemplaires dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (Biblioteca Nacional et Biblioteca de Oviedo). Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 245389.

         A Paraphrase upon the Psalmes of David and upon the Hymnes dispersed throughout the Old and New Testaments

      London 1636. - Small 8vo., pp. [14], 224, 227-258, 257-271 (text complete despite pagination); internally a very crisp, fresh copy; in contemporary black morocco, gilt with a double frame, fleurons to inner corners and a central wreath, spine gilt, gilt edges, ties wanting; very slightly rubbed; ownership inscriptions of A. Gowran to title-page and of the judge and collector of Elizabethan literature John Duke Coleridge to endpapers, with the latter's note that it was bought at the 1871 sale of the library of S. John Simeon; bookplates of the antiquary John Adair Hawkins and of Robert S. Pirie.First edition, a fine copy of these psalm paraphrases by the poet and adventurer George Sandys (1578-1644) who was hailed by Dryden as 'the best versifier' of his age. Sandys's Paraphrase upon the Psalmes is one of the most highly regarded collections of early Biblical verse paraphrase, notable for its anti-Calvinist theology and its effective combination of 'a formal delight in "the beauty of holiness" with personal devotion' (Oxford DNB). The commendatory poem is by Lucius Cary, Viscount Falkland, the founder of the Great Tew Circle, who was an enthusiastic advocate of Sandys's religious poetry. Sandys is best remembered as a traveller, first in the Middle East, and later in America as the treasurer of the newly-established colony of Virginia. After the colony was almost wiped out by Native Americans, Sandys himself led the counter attack. In quieter moments in Virginia he found the time to compose his famous translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses, which influenced Milton, Pope, and Dryden among others.A second edition of Sandys's Paraphrase appeared in folio in 1638, adding paraphrases of Job, Ecclesiastes, and the Lamentations of Jeremiah as well as musical settings by Henry Lawes.STC 21724; Pforzheimer 851. This is the issue with no full-stop after David on the title-page. Language: English [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Discursos de la Nobleza de España por Bernabé Moreno de Vargas, Regidor Perpetuo de la Ciudad de Mérida. Coregidos [sic] i añedidos [sic] por el mismo autor. Al illustrissimo Señor Arzobispo, Obispo de la Ciudad de Cuzco.

      María de Quiñones, Madrid 1636 - 14.3x19.5. 4h. 140 folios. Pergamino de época, el título rotulado en la lomera. Falta un trozo de lomo, algunas antigua manchas en los márgenes, papel de algunas hojas amarronado (esto se debe principalmente a la escasa calidad del papel empleado para la edición). Esta es la 2ª edición; la primera es de 1622. Palau 182383. La biografía de la impresora María de Quiñones es fascinante: fue viuda del impresor Pedro Madrigal cuando se casa en 1602 con Juan de la Cuesta, futuro impresor del Quijote. En 1607 Cuesta se marcha a Sevilla, con intención de embarcar a las Américas, dejando la imprenta al cuidado de su esposa, su suegra, Maria Rodriguez de Ribalde, y el impresor Jerónimo de Salazar. Deja a su mujer embarazada y la imprenta con deudas. Tras 59 años a cargo del negocio, Quiñones lo traspasa en 1666, y muere tres años después. Según Astrana Marín, era analfabeta. Vaya mujeres, las españolas. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.

Eerste uitgave van de Statenvertaling, bevat het Oude en Nieuwe Testament met uitgebreide kanttekeningen en de Apocriefen. De bijbelvertaling, welke op gezag van de Staten Generaal tot stand kwam, werd voor het grootste gedeelte in 1636 gedrukt en werd in 1637 uitgegeven. De uitgave werd in Leiden gedrukt in de drukkerij van Paulus Aertsz. van Ravesteyn welke in opdracht werkte voor de weduwe en erfgenamen van Hillebrant Jacobsz. van Wouw aan wie het privilegie voor 15 jaar gegeven was om de Bijbel uit te geven. Na verschijnen van de Statenbijbel werd deze geleidelijk ingeburgerd, het gezag van de uitgave werd zowel door de kerkelijke als de wereldlijke overheid bevorderd. Vanwege de zuivere en objectieve overzetting resulteerde dit er in dat de Bijbel tot op heden de standaardbijbel is voor de Nederlandse Protestanten. Een net en compleet exemplaar van deze toonaangevende Bijbeluitgave, gebonden in een volledig originele band.) (engraved titlepage, 23) 288, 27, (2) 138, (2) 166 (12), (3) 76 folia.

The front and back cover are blind-stamped with a large central ornament depicting Atlas carrying the world. First edition of the Dutch States Translation (Statenvertaling), containing the Old and New Testament with extensive marginal notes and the Apocrypha. The translation of the Bible, which was authorized by the States General, was for the greater part printed in 1636 and was published in 1637. The edition was printed at Leiden in the printing office of Paulus Aertsz. van Ravesteyn who was working for the widow and heirs of Hillebrant Jacobsz. van Wouw who were granted the privilege to publish the Bible for 15 years. After the States Translation was published it became generally accepted and the authority of the translation was stimulated by both church and government. Due to the true and objective interpretation it became the standard Bible for Dutch Protestants until now. A nice and complete copy of this leading Bible edition, bound in an entirely contemporary binding.) Bruin, C.C. de (1993). De Statenbijbel en zijn voorgangers.
