      1640 - with transcription, saying that "in all humility this Country hath endeavoured to fulfil your Majesty's Commands with the forwardest of your Majesty's Subjects, and the last year, in the execution of your Majesty's royal Command about the military affairs did expend, an hundred thousand pounds to our great impoverishment & far above the proportion of other Countries which although at that time we were willing, (out of our duties to serve your Majesty) . yet for the future . we neither can nor are able to bear it", upon "this our cheerfulness to serve your Majesty we hoped to have found equal favours with other Countries. But . to our grief . and . to the great disservice of your Majesty we find ourselves oppressed with the billeting of unruly soldiers . to whose violencies & insolencies were are so daily subject, as we cannot say we possess our wives children & estates in safety", such billeting against their will "is contrary to the Laws . confirmed by your Majesty in the Petition of Right", they "most humbly desire . that this insupportable burden may be taken from us, lest by their insolencies, some such sad accident may happen as will be much displeasing to your sacred Majesty", there follow thirty three names, headed by Wharton and Fairfax, "with many others", 1 side folio and conjugate blank, At the Assizes at York, 28th July worn at edges and folds but without loss (Transcription of 55792) To the king's Most Excellent Majesty The humble petition of the Gentry in your Majesty's County of York now assembled at the Assizes at York, this 28th July 1640: May it please your Sacred Majesty. Your most humble subjects show to your most Sacred Majesty that in all humility this Country hath en- deavoured to fulfil your Majesty's Commands with the forwardest of your Majesty's Subjects, and the last year, in the execution of your Majesty's royal Command about the military affairs did expend, an hundred thousand pounds to our great im- poverishment & far above the proportion of other Countries which although at that time we were willing, (out of our duties to serve your Majesty) to do yet for the future the burden is so heavy that we neither can nor are able to bear it now upon this our cheerfulness to serve your Majesty we hoped to have found equal favours with other Countries. But so it is most gracious sovereign to our grief and as we conceive to the great disservice of your Majesty we find ourselves oppressed with the billeting of unruly soldiers whose speeches and actions tend to the burdening ['burning' inserted after 'burdening', possibly in another hand] of our villages & houses, and to whose violencies & insolencies were are so daily subject, as we cannot say we possess our wives children & estates in safety. Wherefore we are emboldened humbly to present these our com- plaints, beseeching that as the Billeting of Soldiers, in any of your subjects' houses against their will is contrary to the Laws of this kingdom, confirmed by your Majesty in the Petition of Right, we most humbly desire your most Sacred Majesty that this insupportable burden may be taken from us, lest that by their insolencies, some such sad accident may happen as will be much displeasing to your sacred Majesty and your loyal & obedient subjects will never cease to pray for your Majesty's large & happy reign over us.

        Sacra Famiglia con Angeli

      1640 - Acquaforte,1640-45 circa, firmato in lastra in basso a sinistra "P. Testa". Bella prova impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al margine, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il disegno preparatorio per quest’acquaforte è andato perduto, ma le grandi proporzioni e la struttura fisica degli angeli, indicano un’esecuzione ai primi anni del quarto decennio del sec. XVII, vicina a opere quali "Le Stagioni"; "Il Trionfo dell’artista virtuoso sul Parnaso" e alla pala d’altare per S. Martino ai Monti. Sulla destra, appare la stella araldica di Girolamo Buonvisi che, se non fornisce un’indicazione certa che la stampa sia stata realizzata prima del ritorno del Buonvisi a Lucca, in occasione della morte di papa Urbano VIII nel 1644, supporta comunque la datazione proposta sulla base dell’analisi stilistica. La storia del miracolo della palma che, durante la Fuga in Egitto, si piega alla volontà del Bambino producendo i suoi datteri per sfamare Giuseppe e Maria, è raccontata nel vangelo dello pseudo Matteo. L’albero qui rappresentato è un melo che rimanda all’albero della conoscenza e quindi all’albero della vita: Testa quindi riprende ancora una volta il tema sviluppato ne Il sogno di Giuseppe, cioè la Fuga in Egitto come inizio della via Crucis di Cristo. Etching, circa 1640-45, inscribed in the image in lower left "P. Testa". Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed at margins, in very good condition. No drawings survive for this etching, but the muscular figures of the angels and the grander proportions of the other figures, indicate a date in the early 1640s, close to those of "The Season", "The Triumph of the Virtuous Artist on Parnassus" and the alterpiece for San Martino ai Monti. The heraldic star of Girolamo Buonvisi that appears on the left, does not provide absolute confirmation that the print was made before Buonvisi’s return to Lucca upon the death of Urban VIII in 1644, but it supports the stylistic evidence that the print was made close to that date. The story of meal miraculously produced by a date palm for the Holy Family on the Flight into Egypt is told by the Pseudo-Matthew. Testa inserts an apple tree, that refers to the Tree of Kowdledge and so to the Tree of Life: Testa is here taking up once more the theme developed in The Dream of Joseph that Christ undertook the Way of Cross when he fled into Egypt.

        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.

        Principato Citra olim Picentia

      Willem Blaeu, Amsterdam - Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 15" x 19.75" This beautiful map of the Amalfi Coast and Solerno Province of Italy was issued by Willem Blaeu in circa 1640. The map extends from Naples to the Gulf of Policastro. The important regions of Naples and Salerno are noted, which includes the popular tourist destination of the Amalfi Coast. Mount Vesuvius, whose violent eruption in 79 AD buried and destroyed the two cities, is identified. The map also labels lakes, rivers and other topographic features with beautifully rendered mountains and forests. Latin text on verso provides interesting history and description of the region. An elaborate title cartouche laden with grapes and featuring mer-folk is included in the lower left. The scale cartouche in the top right features surveyor holding a globe. The map is in good condition with minor wear and toning along the original centerfold and minor foxing at places. Latin text on verso. One of the most prolific Dutch mapmakers of his time, Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu and his family worked out of Amsterdam and was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons.

        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).

        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).
