Bei der Karte handelt es sich um sehr ungewöhnliche Karte, denn der Mathematiker Ritter projizierte die Welt vom Nordpol aus. "It is projected from the north pole as if it were the table of a sundial, with the land masses drawn to scale in proportion to their distance from this point. The map is thus highly distorted according to the normal conceptions but it is nevertheless mathematically correct." ( Shirley, Seite/Page 290). - Mit guten Rändern, Mittelfalte restauriert ( Centrefold restored ).

        Venezuela, cum parte Australi Nova Andalusiae

      Amsterdam 1640 - Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. French text on verso. Sheet size: 19 5/8 x 23 1/4 inches. A fine 17th century map of Venezuela and the Lesser Antilles. In the seventeenth century, the Dutch hegemony in ship building and navigation engendered their dominance in mapmaking. At the lead of this field was the Blaeu family. Willem Janszoon Blaeu first studied mathematics and navigation under the famous astronomer Tycho Brahe in 1594, opening his own instrument and globe making shop in Amsterdam in 1599. Shortly thereafter, Willem Blaeu would open a printing house, specializing in works on navigation. The Blaeu family's first world atlas, modestly titled the Atlantis Appendix as it was considered a continuation of the atlases by Ortelius, Mercator and Hondius, was first published in 1630 by Willem Blaeu with his son Joan Blaeu, the official cartographers of the Dutch East India Company. The acclaim that Blaeu's atlases have always received is based primarily upon the extremely high production standards found within. The quality of the engraving and the paper are of the highest order, placing them in the first rank among seventeenth century illustrated books. Blaeu's maps and town plans are embellished in the Baroque style, and many rank among the most beautiful ever made. Van der Krogt, (Atlantes) 9830:2.2; Koeman, Bl17.87.

        Het stichtigh ende vermakelijck proces van drie ghebroeders, edel-lieden. Den eenen zijnde een dronkaert. [Den] tweden een hoer-eerder. [Den] derden een speelder.

P. v. O. Including : RULANT, H . Satyra ofte lofsang van droncken drincken. [Amsterdam?, Jacob Aertsz. Colom?], 1635. Small 8vo (14.5×9 cm). Half calf (ca. 1830s), with the binder's stamp on an endleaf (F. DUQUESNE À GAND).

      KVK & WorldCat (1 copy); cf. Kruyskamp, Jan Mommaert en het "Stichtelyck Proces", in: Het Boek XXX, pp. 306-312 (1640 ed.). Second known copy of the third edition (1635) of a rare satirical Dutch adaptation (first and second editions 1634) of a moralistic story in Latin by Filippo Beroaldo (1453-1505), possibly intended in this adaptation to satirize the Princes of Orange. The quotations from classical sources are given in Latin, each followed by a Dutch verse translation that takes some liberties with the text. Pieter Nootmans (active 1627-1635) contributed a verse about the book, printed on the back of the title-page. Following the main text is a drinking song by H. Rulant (active 1632-1634), with its own part-title, which had been published separately in 1632. We have located only one other copy of the present edition, in the library of Tresoar in Leeuwarden.The British Library database of bindings includes one binding by this Ghent binder. The title-page is worn and dirty, with a small abrasion obliterating the letter S in "Stichtigh", and the upper outside corner of the last leaf has been restored, with the loss of a few words of the text of the added drinking song. The binding is good, with some cracks in the hinges and minor damage along the edges.

        Lilium Montanum rubrum præcox [Lesser turk's cap lily]; Iris Bulbosa pallido colore [Yellow Spanish iris]; Iris folis angustis prima Clusii [Lavender rhizomatous iris]

      Eichstatt 1640 - Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done. Hand-coloured engraving.
