        La Moree iadis Peloponnese. "Morea olim Peloponnesus

      Greece: Amsterdam Janssonius, Jan 1639. Copper engraved map of the Peloponnesus by Mercator, published by Janssonius in his "Le Nouveau Theatre Du Monde Ou Nouvel Atlas " Vol 3. Original old colour; French text to verso. The map from the plate of Mercator comes from Jansonnius "Nouvel Atlas" with unusual and exclusive full wash colour to sea. Historiated initial and decorative tail piece to verso with old color Small title cartouche and scale; ships and large fish to sea. Good dark impression; light toning; spotting to blank margins and dampstain lower left corner; split [55mm] and short tear[10mm ] at lower centre fold repaired with archival tape to verso. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) Originally a student of philosophy came under the influence of Gemma Frisius, the founder of the Belgian school of Geography, and became interested in mathematics - both in the theory and the practical application. With these skills he soon became an expert in land surveying and cartography, as well as a skilled engraver. His first maps were published in 1537 (Palestine), and 1538 (a map of the world), although his main occupation at this time was globe-making. He later moved to Duisburg, in Germany, where he produced his outstanding wall maps of Europe and of Britain. In 1569 he published his masterpiece, the twenty-one-sheet map of the world, constructed on what is now known as Mercator's projection. It was during this period, while teaching cosmography at Duisburg, that Mercator realised the pressing need for a modern collection of maps to supersede the Ptolemaic atlases. This project was gradually expanded to be a complete description of the Universe, both heaven and earth, with other volumes on the Creation, Genealogy and History and a Chronology. The description of the earth was to be in two parts, a modern geography and a Ptolemaic atlas, a massive and over-ambitious project. In fact, only the Chronology and the Ptolemaic Geographia were completed in his lifetime, and it was left to his son, Rumold, to complete and publish the world atlas in 1595. Entitled Atlas, sive Cosmographicae Meditationes de Fabrica Mundi, this was the first time the name "Atlas" was applied to a bound collection of maps, and, like Mercator's projection, has remained in everyday use to this day. After Rumold's death in 1599, the plates for the atlas were published by Gerard Jr. Following his death in 1604, the printing stock was bought at auction by Jodocus Hondius, and re-issued well into the seventeenth century. Johannes Janssonius (approx. 1588-1664) came from a family of printers and publishers and learned the book printing trade at an early age. In 1612 he married the daughter of Jodocus Hondius and thus became a member of one of the most important publishing families in the Netherlands. During the 1630s he went into partnership with his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius and published more editions of the Mercator/Hondius atlases with the addition of the name Jansson. He grew their publishing house in the fields of geography and cartography and published newly compiled world, sea and city atlases, always competing with the Blaeu publishing house. His main works were the "Atlas Majoris Appendix" (1639), the six-volume "Atlas Novus" (1638 ff.) and the monumental "Atlas Major" comprising eleven volumes (1647).

        DU NOTAIRE'. Französische Handschrift in schwarzer Tinte auf Papier, unsigniert und undatiert (ca. 1760), einspaltig, zu 26 - 35 Zeilen, Schriftspiegel ca. 20 x 13 cm.

      - (478) S. (bis Seite 472 paginiert), (1) lose eingelegtes Korrekturblatt, dunkelbrauner Ganzleder-Band der Zeit auf fünf unechten Bünden (Gelenke mit kl. Einrissen, Ecken etwas berieben), 27 x 18,5 cm. Der Text, in gut lesbarer Reinschrift, besteht aus etwa 200 Kapiteln mit Überschriften, die jeweils ca. 1 bis 4 Seiten umfassen. Die ersten Kapitel (S. 1 -23) befassen sich zunächst mit dem Notariat im Allgemeinen und dessen (historischer) Funktion ('Du Notaire', 'De la Creation des Notaires', 'Du Privilege des Notaires', etc.). Die folgenden (S. 23 - 104) behandeln die Praxis und die Rechtsformen von Verträgen und Transaktionen ('De l'origine des Contracts', 'De L'obligation', 'Formule d'une obligation', 'Des legalizations', 'De la transaction', 'De la restitution', 'Des choses qui peuvent être vendues, ou achetées', etc.) und (S. 105 bis 230) den Kauf und Verkauf, die Überlassung, den Tausch und die Nutznießung, insbesondere von Immobilien, sowie spezielle Formen der Übertragung von Gütern und Rechten ('De la vente des fruits', 'De la vente des servitudes', 'De la rente', 'Du partage', 'De l'echange', 'Du titre clerical', 'Des resignations des benefices', 'Du contract d'entrée en religion', 'De la Commande', 'Des fiefs', 'Des taillables', 'Des procures', 'Des Donnations', etc.). Auf Seite 230 bis 270 werden Heiratsverträge behandelt, daran anschließend (bis S. 297) u.a. Gesellschafts- und Vereinsrecht und Lehrverträge ('De la Societé', 'De l'apprentissage', 'Du Depot', 'De la quittance'), ab Seite 298 Testamente und Erbschaftsangelegenheiten ('De l'institution hereditaire', 'De la legitime', 'Des legats', 'Des usufruits', 'Des enfants naturels, bâtards, . ', 'Des aliments', 'De l'inventaire legale', etc.). Ab Seite 395 wird schließlich das Schuldner-Gläubiger-Verhältnis, Zinsen und Sicherheiten dargestellt ('Des interets et usure', 'Des prescriptions', etc.); die letzten Kapitel befassen sich mit Sonderfragen, aber auch den Notariatstarifen; die Seiten 463 bis 471 enthalten das Inhaltsverzeichnis. - Seit dem Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts gab es in Frankreich ein Standardwerk zum Notariat, das Lehrbuch par excellence : Claude de Ferrieres (1639 - 1715) 'La Science parfaite des Notaires', erstmals 1682 in Paris erschienen. Auch für das vorliegende Manuskript war dieses, von Ferrieres Sohn Claude-Joseph (1680 - 1750) fortgeschriebene Standardwerk , wohl ein Vorbild. Auch Ferrieres Werk besteht aus etwas über 200 Kapiteln, von denen die meisten in der hier vorliegenden Handschrift ihre Entsprechung finden. Während Ferriere aber streng definitorisch Begriff für Begriff abhandelt, geht die Handschrift auch auf (wohl der eigenen Praxis entnommenes) Nebensächliches und Beispielhaftes ein : 'Des fruits qui tombent des arbres d'autrui sur le fond voisin' (Seite 444) etc. - Die ersten Seiten mit mittigem Braunfleck, sonst nur stellenweise leicht stockfleckig.

        De Fontium Origine Tractatus, in Regia & Equestri Academia Sorana...

      Hafniae, typis Martzanianis, 1639. 12mo (145 x 90 mm). pp. (8), 136. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spine with 5 raised bands. First edition of one of the very early works on the origin of sources. Joachim Burser (1583-1639) was a German physician and botanist, professor of botany and medicine at Sorö, Denmark from 1625-1639. Burser's extensive herbarium, some 25 volumes, was seized by Charles X as booty in 1657-58 and taken to Sweden and used by Linnaeus. It is still an 'important source for the interpretation of many Linnaean species' (Stafleu & Cowan I, p. 419).//Poggendorff I, p. 350.

        Contrat de Mariage de M. Jean Louis de Bourbon et D. Helene de la Queille du premier 1st Aout 1639.

      1639 - A Contract of Marriage between Jean Louis de Bourbon-Busset, Baron de Chalus (1597-1667) and Helene de la Queille de Fleurac (? - 1669)] dated 1 August 1639. 8 1/2 in. x 13 in.; A title page, a blank page, 16 pages of calligraphic handwriting, and two blank pages; all text handwritten in French, on watermarked paper; sewn. The pages average 24 lines per page, with 4 Generalite de Paris stampings at the top of the first four sheets. Two signatures at the end [Mathon & Gibert ?] are probably those of two notaries, who by law were at that time and still are required to reduce the terms of a marriage contract to writing. Every recto has, beneath the last line of text and toward the left margin, a circular squiggle; two such marks appear at the end of the document, and at various places throughout the text in the left margin of a number of pages where cross-outs appear in the text. Permit me to speculate: the squiggles may be acknowledgements of their consent by the parties, both to the contract as a whole and to changes in the documents, a practice still followed today when interlineations are made to printed contractual documents. The signatures at the end (Mathon & Gibert?) are those of the notaries. Let me speculate further: if the foregoing is true, then the happy couple were illiterate and signified their consent by making their “marks,” as occasionally happens even today. Jean Louis was a descendant, along an illegitimate branch, of the earliest French Kings; specifically, of Robert, son of Robert the Strong who was count of Anjou, and nephew of Odo who became King of the Western Franks in 888. Throughout Medieval times and into the early modern era, marriages were most often motivated by politics, power, and land, almost never by love and romance. The latter two stimulants to propagating the species led to extra-marital affairs and illegitimate children. Sometimes these branches were legitimated by a king, and sometimes they weren’t. The record is not clear whether, by Jean Louis’s lifetime, his branch of the Bourbons had ever been legitimated. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Mycket fint samtida pergamenband med guldornerad rygg med handtextad titel, guldornerade pärmar med dubbla ramlinjer, blommor i hörnen och medaljong i mitten. Med D'Antivaris pärmstämpel "C:T:A." pressad i svart på frampärmen. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Collijn sp. 528f. Almqvist s. 115. Björne s. 27f. Carlander II, s. 301 resp. III, s. 568. Träsnittsramen är densamma som användes till Nya Testamentet 1549-50 (i Hiertakatalogen (post nr. 1190) kallad för den "Lamensonska ramen", vilket troligen är felskrivet för "Laurentssonska"). Fint exemplar av första upplagan av Loccenius första större rättsvetenskapliga arbete! Det tillkom när Loccenius var professor i romersk rätt och var avsedd att vara en handbok i detta ämne. Det är även hans första bok som dessutom behandlar svensk rätt, även om den delen är av ringa betydelse. En andra upplaga av "Exercitationes" trycktes som bilaga till den andra upplagan av hans "Synopsis" (1653), med separat paginering, och sedan arbetade han in texten helt till den tredje och kraftigt utökade upplagan av "Synopsis" (1673). Johannes Loccenius (1598-1677), som föddes i Holstein, blev jur. dr. i Leiden 1625 och inkallad till Sverige av Gustav II Adolf till en professur i historia i Uppsala samma år. 1628 blev han professor Skytteanus, 1648 universitetsbibliotekarie, rikshistoriograf 1651 och 1667 assessor i antikvitetskollegiet. Som forskare i svensk rätt och som lärare introducerade Loccenius rättsvetenskapen i Sverige. Christopher Theodor D'Antivari (1690-1763) var romersk-tysk kejserlig minister-resident i Stockholm. Han gjorde stora donationer i Stockholm, bl. a till Klara kyrka (där han även är begravd) och adlades i Sverige samma år som han dog. Han hade ett stort biblotek, med historia och juridik. Hans bokstämpel är englit Carlander från 1740-talet

        Mundi Lapis Lydius, sive VAnitas per Vertate falso accusata & convicta opera Antwerp

      typis viduae Jaon. Cnobbari 1639 - FIRST EDITION 4to. pp. [xxviii] 249 [xxvi]. Roman letter, a little italic, printed side notes, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, engr. t.p. featuring three female allegories of Truth, Justice and Vanity by Theodor Johannes van Merlen after Abraham van Diepenbeeck, 50 engraved emblems by A. Pauli in strong and clear impressions, on p. 234 full moon rising over a river, hand-coloured. Light age yellowing, slightest worming to gutter and margin of t.p., couple of ll. slightly short at end of ream; a handsome and well-margined copy in contemp mottled calf with covers triple-bordered in gilt, spine gilt in six compartments with raised bands, verysympathetically restored. An emblem book with a uncommon didactic twist: the typical pairing of each image with an instructive motto has been split in two, one describing the scene untruthfully ('vanitas'), the other its reality ('veritas'). For instance, surrounding an image of a printing house (p. 10) it is said that Verborum copia and Nihil copia, sed usus: although there is an abundance of words and writing, abundance means nothing without use. In fifty chapters, the book provides a dual commentary over subjects as diverse as memory, marriage, political power, fame, and eating habits. As de Bourgogne argues in the preface, the exercise proves that poor judgement sometimes allows vain conclusions to be drawn from truth. The work is critical of its own tradition, since other books of emblems encourage forming many different possible interpretations of word and image, both religious and profane. De Bourgogne's recognizes both tendencies in the genre, and his commentary reveals to readers not only which he takes to be true, but instructs them how to arrive at truthfulness for themselves. The volume is a fresh and innovative continuation of his earlier emblem book, Linguae vitia et remedia (1631) which focuses on remedies for the abuse of language through insults, lies, blasphemies, and calumnies. It was popular into the 18th century, reaching several other editions and translation into Dutch and German.
Little is known about Antoine de Bourgogne (1594 - 1657), Canon and Archdeacon of Bruges, although in one of the five laudatory poems at the beginning of the Mundi Lapis, he is connected by his friend the poet Olivarius Vredius, with the ancient House of Burgundy, through his namesake Anthony, bastard of Burgundy to Anthony's father Philip the Good (1396 - 1467), and finally Philip's father John the Fearless (1371 - 1419).

        Virginiae partis australis, et Floridae.

      Amsterdam 1639 - Copperplate engraving with fine original color, refreshed; some reinforcement and offsetting, else excellent. A map that combines elegant design with historical importance, it depicts the area from the lower Chesapeake Bay, down through North Carolina¿s Outer Banks, the entire coastlines of South Carolina and Georgia, along through to northern Florida. The map reflects the growth of the English colony beyond the Jamestown settlement. The English royal coat of arms marks this area. Less well known but shown on the map is one of the failed French colonies in Port Royal in South Carolina, whose inhabitants were massacred by the Spanish. Beyond this, there was little European presence in the Southeast at the time, as indicated by the predominance of Indian tribal names on the map on the area. Because the area was still dimly known at the time, the map abounds in legends concerning the nature of the interior, man of which are of a tantalizing nature. One lake is reported by Indians to contain silver. Gold and silver are supposedly found in the Appalachian Mountains, which are shown on the map in Georgia. Another large lake on the map that is said to have a large falls emanating from it might actually be the mapmaker¿s guess at locating Lake Ontario and the Niagara Falls The map is a fine example of Dutch decorative engraving. Six well-drawn Indian figures flank the title cartouche, and three well-detailed sailing vessels and two compass roses provide added ornamentation. Burden 254; Cumming 42

[STC 24548a]. A monumental history of the Irish Church, regarded as his most important work. 'This volume was the culmination of the research that King James had encouraged Ussher to undertake, now dedicated to King Charles. Charles, unlike his father, had little interest in ecclesiastical antiquities, but as the Supreme Governor of the Church of England he was the natural dedicatee of the most scholarly, extensive, and coherent account of the origin and spread of Christianity in Britain that had yet appeared. It was the masterpiece of that kind of nationalistic Church history that Matthew Parker had aspired to write in mid-Elizabethan times, but Ussher had access to a much greater range of documents and sources than Parker, and his sense of capillary progress of Christianity through Britain was quite unprecedented. He understood the pattern of development across the British Isles as a whole, thanks to his intensive study of the Celtic Church. Ussher took his account up to the end of the seventh century, and he could show that by the time of Augustine's mission at the end of the sixth century, the British Isles were thoroughly Christian, and the Celtic Church was animated by an apostolic spirit.'

        Sylva SylvarumOrA Naturall Historie in Ten Centuries

      London - William Lee 1639 - An early copy of Francis Bacon's Sylva Sylvarum. Fifth edition with alphabetical table of the principle things contained within the work, featuring decorative head and tail pieces, and illuminated capitals. To which is added Bacon's A New Atlantis a Worke Unfinished. Autopian workoriginallyreleased in 1627,depicting Bacon's ideas of an ideal land where generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendor, piety and public spirit were the commonly held qualities of the inhabitants of Bensalem. The name Bensalem means Son of Peace, having obvious resemblance with Bethlehem and is referred to as God's bosom, a land unknown, in the last page of the work. There has been much speculation as to whether a real island society inspired Bacon's utopia. Scholars have suggested numerous countries, from Iceland to Japan,a city named Bensalem was actually founded in Pennsylvania, USA, in 1682. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularised inductive methodologies for scientific enquiry, often called the Baconian method, or simply the scientific method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds conceptions of proper methodology today. The Sylva Sylvarum is particularly fascinating as it contains numerous passages dealing with medical treatments for the prolongation of life and the preservation of flesh. Sylva Sylvarumlacks the frontispiece and engraved title page. New Atlantis lacks last leaf. Condition: In a half vellum binding with paper covered boards. Externally, rather rubbed and worn. Loss to the spine, and vellum is lifting. Both boards are held by the cords only and are rather delicate. Internally, generally firmly bound yet with some leaves working loose, and endpapers absent. Pages are bright, but with the odd spot and handling mark. Tide marks to title page through to page 2, and 111 to 147. Marginal evidence of past worming throughout the text. Minor loss to title page. Copperplate ink inscriptions to the front and rear pastedowns, and title page. Overall: FAIR. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
