        Mappa Aestivarum Insularum, alias Barmudas

      Amsterdam 1640 - Questa magnifica mappa si basa sulla relazione di John Norwood, della Bermuda Company, del 1618. Il territorio è diviso nelle originarie tribù, e nella tabella sono riportati i nomi dei primi coloni, con la relativa parte assegnata. L'isola fu scoperta nel 1515 dallo spagnolo Juan de Bernudez, che le diede il nome. Ma fu solo a partire dal naufragio del 1609 della "Sea Venture", guidata da Sir George Sommers, che l'isola venne colonizzata dagli inglesi, per diventare colonia britannica nel 1684. In omaggio all'ammiraglio, gli inglesi chiamarono l'isola Sommers o Summers Island, da qui il titolo latino di "Mappa Aestivarum Insularum". Di ulteriore interesse, la raffigurazione, nella superiore della mappa, della Virginia e di New England, mentre in basso, a sinistra, si vede la punta di Hispaniola. Una delle più più accurate e affascintanti mappe dell'epoca. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei confini, in ottime condizioni. The map shows the island divided into tribes and lots, and below the map itself appear the coats of arms of Bermuda and England and the names of the first proprietors and the number of shares assigned each. A most attractive variant on the Norwood survey map. The ‘Sea Venture’ under Sir George Somers was wrecked off Bermuda in 1609 and the surviving Englishmen divided the island into Tribes (later Parishes) and Shares, which are individually listed with their owners at the foot of the map. The map's Latin title, Mappa Aestivarum Insularum, means Summer (or Somers) Island for its first leader. Shortly afterwards the Bermudas were granted to the Virginia Company, hence various references to the Company on the map including the distance to the Roanoke Colony in Virginia. The miniature map with its own scale, top left, shows the island’s position relative to the Virginian coast. Jansson derived his map from Richard Norwood’s survey which was carried out in 1622 and published by John Speed in 1627. It remains one of the most accurate and decorative maps of the period. Copperplate, original outline colour, in good condition. Palmer/Tooley, The mapping of Bermuda, plate XI. Dimensioni 520 400mm

        Africa antique map - Bleau, c. 1640.

      ?Africae nova descriptio? Copper engraving with outline colour to cartographical image and full colour to pictorial borders. Published in Amsterdam by Willem Jansz. and Joan Blaeu c. 1640. Size: 41 x 55,5 cm. In handsome walnut frame.This is a cornerstone map of Africa and is one of the better known, more decorative maps of Africa of the seventeenth century.The map shows major African towns across the top: Tangiers, Ceuta, Algiers, Tunis, Alexandria, Cairo, the island of Mozambique, The Mine at St. George in Guinea and Canaria in the Canary Islands. The left and right borders show various indigenous costumes: Moroccans, Senegalese, traders in Guinea, Congolese, Egyptians, Abyssinians, Mozambicans, the king of Madagascar and inhabitants of Cape of Good Hope.The body of the map is richly embellished with animals, including elephants, monkeys, ostriches, gazelles, lions, cheetahs and camels. In the oceans are numerous sailing ships, sea monsters, flying fish, and a gorgeous compass rose. Much of the geographical information is still based on the Ptolemaic maps, with the Nile shown with its source in the Lakes Zaire and Zaflan. Also included are various other mythical lakes and rivers including the famous Lake Sachaf. Only coastal towns are named on the Cape, with the printing covering much of the unknown territory.Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz. Bleau (1571-1638) as he was to be later more commonly known, was one of the noted Dutch cartographers and map publishers of the seventeenth century. After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, Bleau initially concentrated on globemaking and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for wall maps and sea atlases, and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons Joan (c. 1599-1673) and Cornelis (1610-1644), culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes by Joan Bleau with subsequent editions. On February 23, 1672 a fire at the offices of the Bleau publishing effectively ended the successful Bleau business. Joan died after the fire in 1673, and, though Joan II continued the business for some time, many of the plates were auctioned shortly thereafter. This map was not reprinted after 1672 as the Africa copperplate is not known to have survived the fire. The Spanish edition of the Atlas Maior was in the process of being printed, including the section on Africa with this map of Africa, when the fire occurred.Blaeu?s maps set the standard for the quality of the engraving, paper and colour, as well as a fine depiction of contemporary geographical knowledge.Price: ?3.500,- (incl. frame) (BTW/VAT margin scheme).

        Asia antique map - Willem Blaeu, 1640.

      MAP OF ASIA"Asia Noviter Delineata." Carte-a-figures by Willem Blaeu depicting the native manners of dress, and nine city plans and views at the top. Copper engraving printed in 1640, coloured by a later hand. Size 41 x 55,2 cm.A fine example of Willem Blaeu's famous map of Asia. Like the Blaeu Africa map, this is a map that appeals both to a sense of cartographic history and to an aesthetic sense of beauty. This is a cornerstone, folio-size map of Asia and is one of the better known, more decorative maps of Asia of the 17th century. This map is basically a reduction of Blaeu's wallmap of Asia of 1608. The map contains extensive details on what was known of Asia in the early 17th century. Korea is still an enlonged island. Japan has a predominantly east to west direction. In China, the Great Wall is shown along with the in-land lakes.Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) as he is more commonly known, was one of the most noted Dutch cartographers and map publisher of the 17th century. Blaeu's maps are "esteemed by collectors for their decorative quality, historical importance, and as the highest expression of Dutch cartographic art during the period of its supremacy" (Tooley, p 28).After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer,Tycho Brahe, Blaeu initially concentrated on globe making and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for sea atlases and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons, culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes with subsequent editions.The map is in its 3rd state. The 1st state of 1617 was issued separately and has the name of "Willem Jansz" (not Blaeu) in the title cartouche. This state is rare and is virtually impossible to acquire. The 2nd state of 1621-30 has the name changed to "Guiljelmo Blaeuw" in the title. Price: ?2.850,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

        Nova Hispania, et Nova Galicia.

      c1640., Amsterdam: 1640 - Copper engraved double page map, had colored in outline, large colored cartouche, 34.7 x 48. 3 cm (13 3/4" x 19"). Latin text on verso. Some aging and toning, verso repairs along center fold, and a few other places, tear at crease in lower portion of map, lower margin partially replaced below neat line, which is defective in one place; despite defects, an attractive map with a nice impression. Jannson (1596-1664) was a Dutch mapmaker during the "golden age" of Dutch cartography. He started out as a publisher and bookseller, but when he married the daughter of another map maker, Jodocus Hondius, he got into that business. In 1633 he and his brother-in=law (Henry Hodicus) produced the two volume edition of the Mercator Atlas. The present map shows Mexico City and points west, and the west coast of Mexico shown from present day Tuxpan to Acapulco de Juarez. A large cartouche shows a lion holding a sword on the top of the royal shield of Spain, which is flanked by a man and woman in Greek style togas. Portinaro and Knirsch p.315.

        Kingdom of Napels - Blaeu.

      Regno di Napoli?Regno di Napoli??, kopergravure rond 1640 vervaardigd door Joan Blaeu. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 38,5 x 50 cm. Met aan de achterzijde in het Nederlands een beschrijving van het gebied.Het koninkrijk Napels maakte in die tijd deel uit van de Spaanse gebieden van het Habsburgse rijk. In de rechter bovenhoek zien we dan ook het Spaanse wapen. De kaart is verder fraai versierd met de kleurige provinciewapens in de kaartrand. Als bron voor deze kaart maakte Blaeu gebruik van een atlas van de Italiaanse kartograaf Giovanni Antonio Magini (1555-1617), wiens kaartboek Italia in 1620 postuum in Bologna was uitgegeven.De kaart werd maakte ook onderdeel uit van Blaeu?s Atlas Major.Het uitgeven van de Atlas Major wordt, met bijna 600 dubbelzijdige van koperen platen gedrukte gravures en 3000 pagina?s tekst, gezien als een van de grote prestaties van de Gouden Eeuw. Een onderneming met een gecompliceerde planning, financiering en inzet van mankracht en specialisten. Ook hedendaagse uitgevers erkennen Joan Blaeu's superioriteit, drie?nhalve eeuw geleden.De Blaeu atlas was het meest kostbare gedrukte boek dat je in de tweede helft van de 17e eeuw kon krijgen, afhangend van de taal en kleuring tussen fl. 330 en fl. 460. (Een assistent boekverkoper verdiende rond 1660 fl. 2 per week, de huurprijs van een boekwinkel lag tussen fl. 400 - fl. 700 per jaar.) De atlas werd dan ook gemaakt voor een kleine groep geprivilegieerden, die over het intellect en met name de middelen beschikten, om een meesterwerk als de Atlas Major te kunnen waarderen. De gegoeden van die tijd demonstreerden graag hun welvaart, uitgever Blaeu speelde daar met zijn pronkstuk goed op in.De Atlas Major maakt onderdeel uit van de Nederlandse erfgoed canon (zie http://www.entoen.nu/atlasmajor).Prijs: ?950,- (excl lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        Asia antique map - Willem Blaeu, 1640.

      MAP OF ASIA"Asia Noviter Delineata." Carte-a-figures by Willem Blaeu depicting the native manners of dress, and nine city plans and views at the top. Copper engraving printed in 1640, coloured by a later hand. Size 41 x 55,2 cm.A fine example of Willem Blaeu's famous map of Asia. Like the Blaeu Africa map, this is a map that appeals both to a sense of cartographic history and to an aesthetic sense of beauty. This is a cornerstone, folio-size map of Asia and is one of the better known, more decorative maps of Asia of the 17th century. This map is basically a reduction of Blaeu's wallmap of Asia of 1608. The map contains extensive details on what was known of Asia in the early 17th century. Korea is still an enlonged island. Japan has a predominantly east to west direction. In China, the Great Wall is shown along with the in-land lakes.Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) as he is more commonly known, was one of the most noted Dutch cartographers and map publisher of the 17th century. Blaeu's maps are "esteemed by collectors for their decorative quality, historical importance, and as the highest expression of Dutch cartographic art during the period of its supremacy" (Tooley, p 28).After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer,Tycho Brahe, Blaeu initially concentrated on globe making and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for sea atlases and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons, culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes with subsequent editions.The map is in its 3rd state. The 1st state of 1617 was issued separately and has the name of "Willem Jansz" (not Blaeu) in the title cartouche. This state is rare and is virtually impossible to acquire. The 2nd state of 1621-30 has the name changed to "Guiljelmo Blaeuw" in the title. Price: ?2.850,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

        Africa antique map - Bleau, c. 1640.

      ?Africae nova descriptio? Copper engraving with outline colour to cartographical image and full colour to pictorial borders. Published in Amsterdam by Willem Jansz. and Joan Blaeu c. 1640. Size: 41 x 55,5 cm. In handsome walnut frame.This is a cornerstone map of Africa and is one of the better known, more decorative maps of Africa of the seventeenth century.The map shows major African towns across the top: Tangiers, Ceuta, Algiers, Tunis, Alexandria, Cairo, the island of Mozambique, The Mine at St. George in Guinea and Canaria in the Canary Islands. The left and right borders show various indigenous costumes: Moroccans, Senegalese, traders in Guinea, Congolese, Egyptians, Abyssinians, Mozambicans, the king of Madagascar and inhabitants of Cape of Good Hope.The body of the map is richly embellished with animals, including elephants, monkeys, ostriches, gazelles, lions, cheetahs and camels. In the oceans are numerous sailing ships, sea monsters, flying fish, and a gorgeous compass rose. Much of the geographical information is still based on the Ptolemaic maps, with the Nile shown with its source in the Lakes Zaire and Zaflan. Also included are various other mythical lakes and rivers including the famous Lake Sachaf. Only coastal towns are named on the Cape, with the printing covering much of the unknown territory.Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz. Bleau (1571-1638) as he was to be later more commonly known, was one of the noted Dutch cartographers and map publishers of the seventeenth century. After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, Bleau initially concentrated on globemaking and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for wall maps and sea atlases, and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons Joan (c. 1599-1673) and Cornelis (1610-1644), culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes by Joan Bleau with subsequent editions. On February 23, 1672 a fire at the offices of the Bleau publishing effectively ended the successful Bleau business. Joan died after the fire in 1673, and, though Joan II continued the business for some time, many of the plates were auctioned shortly thereafter. This map was not reprinted after 1672 as the Africa copperplate is not known to have survived the fire. The Spanish edition of the Atlas Maior was in the process of being printed, including the section on Africa with this map of Africa, when the fire occurred.Blaeu?s maps set the standard for the quality of the engraving, paper and colour, as well as a fine depiction of contemporary geographical knowledge.Price: ?3.500,- (incl. frame) (BTW/VAT margin scheme).

Jean Baudouin, le traducteur, était lecteur de la reine Marguerite et devint l'un des premiers membres de l&#146;Académie française (1634). Il était pourvu d'un privilège pour la traduction de toutes les &#156;uvres de Bacon dont fut l'un de ses grands passeurs en France. (Gibson, &#145;Bacon, A Bibliography of his Works&#146;, n°139).

        Contemporary Manuscript Copy of his magnificent SPEECH AGAINST SHIP-MONEY (Lucius Cary, 1609/10-1643, M.P. in the Short and Long Parliaments, 1640-1641, Moderate Royalist, from 1633 2nd Viscount [Scottish])]

      1640 - in the Commons debate that voted the king's Writ for Ship-money illegal, saying "Mr Speaker, I rejoice very much to see this day, and the want hath not lain in mine affections but in my lungs, if . my yea hath not been as loud as any man's in the house" (para.1), and apologizing "if . I seem . to trench upon another's profession, and . the work of another robe", (a lawyer's), "since I have been entrusted by the Report of a learned Committee", that on Ship-money, set up 1st December, but "History alone is enough to shew this Judgment", in R. v Hampden, 1637-1638, "contrary to our laws and logic" and "destructive to our properties which every free and noble person values, no less than his possessions". Falkland's "natural disposition is far from inclining to severity" (para. 2), and indeed he has "particular obligations to their callings" against whom he is to speak, but believes "no meat undigested lies heavier upon the stomach, than this unsaid, would have lain upon my conscience" (para. 3). "The Constitution of this Commonwealth hath established, or rather endeavoured to establish . the security of our goods, and the security of those laws which should secure us our goods, by appointing for us Judges . so sworn . that the greatest person in the kingdom cannot continue the least violence upon the meanest. But this security, (Mr. Speaker) . hath . turned . itself into a battery against us" and "those . dogs to defend the flock, have been the wolves to worry it" (para. 4). The Judges' "greatest crime" is to have declared "an opinion and a judgment . such as came not within their cognizance . they being . neither philosophers, nor politicians", in which case "when . the law of the land ceaseth", the law "of General Reason and Equity . returns to her throne . where Salus Populi [the Well-being of the People] becomes not only Suprema but Sola Lex [Supreme, the Only Law]", so that whatever applies to the king over our money applies equally to us in treating of "his and one another's". And indeed the Judges contradicted "many and clear . Acts of Parliament . and those in this very Case" and "very Reign" and needed only "to have consulted with . their own memories" (para. 5). The Judges supposed "weighty and imminent dangers, in the most serene, quiet, & halcyon days . a few contemptible Pirates, being our most formidable enemies", and while the Writ claimed "it could not stay for a Parliament, which requires but 40 days stay", the Writ itself was "content to stay seven months which is that times four times over" (paras. 6,7). Falkland hints that Judges were coerced, (para. 9), is indignant that, having given the king "the sole judgment of necessity" they claimed to have "left us our liberties and properties" (para. 10), and that, "which I confess moved me most", in transforming "free subjects . into . villeins", they "disabled us by legal and voluntary supply to express our affections to His Majesty, and . cherish his to us" (para. 11). "Mr. Speaker, the cause of all the miseries we have suffered . is, that a most excellent Prince hath been most infinitely abused, his Judges telling him that in law, his Divines . that in Conscience . his Councillors . that in Policy he might do what he pleased", now, since "words having done nothing", the only course is "taking away this Judgment and these Judges together, and of regulating their successors by their most exemplary punishment" (para. 12). "I will only say, we have accused a great person of High Treason", the Earl of Strafford, "for intending to subvert our fundamental laws, and introduce an arbitrary government", a charge which applies no less to the Judges (para. 13). "We only accuse, the House of the Lords condemns", but he is wary of their possible leniency. Slowly but steadily he points the finger at "one I must not lose in the crowd" (para. 14), namely Finch, now Lord Keeper presiding over the Lords, whose place "admits him to His Majesty's ear, trusts him with His Majesty's cons
