1638. Original antique print, titled: Argow cum parte Meriod. Zurichgow. It shows: Part of Switzerland, including Bern, Thun, Lucerne and Zug, with the local lakes, as well as the southern part of the Lake Zurich. Copperplate etching/engraving on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: This print originates from: volume 2 of the French edition 'Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas', published in Amsterdam, 1638.Artists and Engravers: Engraver unknown. Original painting or design by: Gerard Mercator. Published by Blaeu in 1638. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) was born in Rupelmonde in Flanders and studied in Louvain under Gemma Frisius, Dutch writer, astronomer and mathematician. The excellence of his work brought him the patronage of Charles V, but in spite of his favor with the Emperor he was caught up in the persecution of Lutheran protestants and charged with heresy, fortunately without serious consequences. No doubt the fear of further persecution influenced his move in 1552 to Duisburg, where he continued the production of maps, globes and instruments. Mercator's sons and grandsons, were all cartographers and made their contributions in various ways to his atlas. Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was a Dutch cartographer, atlas maker and publisher. He is mostly known for his Atlas Maior, the final version of Blaeu's atlas. Condition: Very good, given age. Middle fold, as issued. Paper separation in the centre of the image, in the middle fold. Backed with acid-free archival tape. Some discolouration of the sheet edges, top edge uneven. Storage location: RC-B3-24 The overal … [Click Below for Full Description]

View: 'Chateau de Cormantin, en Guinee. / Kasteel van Cormantin.' (Castle of Cormantin, Guinea, Africa.) Fort Amsterdam is a fort in Kormantin, Ghana. It was built by the English between 1638 and 1645 as Fort Cormantine or Fort Courmantyne, and was captured by admiral Engel de Ruyter of the Dutch West India Company in 1665. It was subsequently made part of the Dutch Gold Coast, and remained part of it until the fort was traded with the British in 1868. Very rare in this edition. Copperplate engraving and etching on a verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Original folds. Authenticity 100% guaranteed. Description: This plate originates from the very scarse: 'La galerie agreable du monde (…). Tome premier des Indes Orientales.', published by P. van der Aa, Leyden, c. 1725.

Van der Aa incorporated plates by other publishers such as Blaeu, Visscher, de Wit, meurs, Halma, Mortier, Allard in this work and often added broad decorative borders. Probably the costliest and complete universal geographic work ever produced. It is said that only 100 copies were printed. Ref: Koeman Aa9; Phillips 2780 note.

Beverwyck, (Beverwijck) Johan van
- Leyden, Elsevir, 1638, 12°, (16), 305, (15) pp., Pergamenteinband der Zeit; feines Exemplar. First Medical Treatise to contain an Endorsement of Harvey's Discovery! - - The rare first edition of Johan van Beverwijck's (1594-1647) monograph present in the first book (pp. 1-208) Beverwijck's treatise on calculi in the kidney and bladder. The second part (pp. 209-305) contains letters addressed by Beverwijck to some prominent physicians, including Nuñez, Back, Saumaise, and Zacuto whom he consulted on that subject, along with their replies. Several consilia by Sanctorius, Spiegel, Horst, and others follow. - At the end of 1637 Beverwyck wrote a letter to Harvey in which he expressed his admiration for Harvey's discovery of blood circulation. At the same time he sent him a copy of the present book. It is the first medical treatise to contain an endorsement of Harvey's discovery, a remarkable fact in view of the negative attitude within the academic circles in Holland. The passage in question "Harvei doctrina de Circulatione sanguinus comprobata" (pp.20-24) is discussed by Walter Pagel in his William Harvey's Biological Ideas (1967), who reproduces the title-page of our book and two pages of the passage on Harvey. Harvey replied to Beverwijck's letter in April 1638, praising his book as "learned and elegant, and truly original." Osler notes the significance of Beverwyck's correspondence with Harvey but was unable to obtain a copy of this rare book. - - Beverwijck , was born in Dordrecht on 17 November 1594. He was the son of Bartholomeus van Beverwijck ( -1615), a textile trad … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Dominicus Germanus de Silesia, OFM)
Rome, Congreg. de Propaganda Fide, 1638. 4to (227 x 163 mm). 1 bl. f., 66 pp. (counted as 43; numerous errors in pagination; some parts included in two variants). With woodcut title vignette. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Very rare polemical work, printed throughout in Arabic and Latin, that aims to compare and contrast Christian and Muslim scripture and doctrines. Dedicated to Cardinal Barberini. The editor Dominicus (1585-1670) taught Arabic at the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide since 1636 and collaborated on their Bible project. His magnum opus, one of the first literal Quran translations, was not rediscovered and published until 1883. In 1636 he published an Arabic grammar (the first publication of the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide press to use Arabic type); in 1639 he would produce a dictionary of vernacular Arabic. Four years in the Middle East had convinced him that a missionary must before everything else know the vernacular language (cf. Fück, p. 78). The present work was considered lost quite recently by Antonio García Masegosa in his study "Germán de Silesia, Interpretatio Alcorani Litteralis, Parte I: La traducción latina" (Madrid, 2009): "Por la misma época, publicó un tratado religioso en árabe y en latín titulado Antitheses fidei, que se encuentra perdido en la actualidad, o que al menos no ha podido ser localizado para este trabajo" (p. 14). - Marked brownstaining throughout with waterstain to upper corner. Still an appealing copy. - Schnurrer 248. Encyclopaedia of the Qur'an IV, 237. OCLC 491545005, 54509800.

Obizzi (Pio Enea degli), 1592-1674
Padua, Paolo Frambotto, 1638. The illustrated libretto of an opera performed in Padua on 11 April 1636 by a travelling company of "mercenarii musici", as the prelude to a tournament in the Cavallerizza di Prato della Valle of which Obizzi was the promoter. A prose description of the horse ballet and tournament by Nicolò Enea Bartolini is interspersed throughout Obizzi's verse libretto; the music, by the Roman composer Giovanni Felice Sances, was not printed. Unlike previous operas, L'Ermiona was not commissioned to celebrate a special occasion, nor was it performed before an audience exclusively made-up of the nobility. The architect and stage designer Alfonso Rivarola (called "Il Chenda") set up a temporary wooden theatre with five vertical tiers of separated boxes accessed from the rear by corridors and common staircases. It is the first major Italian box theatre on record and had immediate influence, guiding the design of the new Teatro San Cassiano, the first public opera stage in Venice, where a year later the modern tradition of commercial opera was inaugurated. Fifteen folding engraved plates reproduce Rivarola's settings and stage machinery.Obizzi, Pio Enea degli Castello del Catajo (Padua) 1592 - 1674 L'Ermiona del S.r Marchese Pio Enea Obizzi.

Ali Albencufian) [i.e., Miguel de Luna].
Paris, Gervais Clousier, 1638. 8vo. 174 pp. With engr. title vignette. 19th-c. half calf with giltstamped title to panelled spine. Marbled endpapers. First French edition of the life of Almansor, the Arabic conqueror and ruler of Spain in the tenth century. Translated from "La Verdadera Historia del Rey Rodrigo" by Gilles de Rainssant. The author, the Moorish apologist Miguel de Luna, first published this historical work in two parts in 1592 and 1600. Although presented as a translation from an Arabic manuscript, it was almost certainly of his own composition. It is important as a sympathetic account of the Moorish conquest of Spain and offers numerous accounts of the humanity and cultivation of an Arabic prince. His pre-eminence in science and learning is dwelt upon, and there is an interesting account of the formation of his vast library: he is said to have offered twice the market value for any book he found wanting from his collections. This rare French edition marks an early and remarkable point in the emergent French interest in the Arab world. - Slight browning throughout. Bookplate of Eugène Vignat (1815-95), Mayor of Orléans and Député of Lorient. A good copy. Rare. Goldsmith A 275. OCLC 771039115. Not in Barbier. Not in Brunet. [Attributes: First Edition]
