BLAEU, JOAN
"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.

BLAEU, JOAN
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.

Willem Janszoon BLAEU (Uitgeest 1571- Amsterdam 1638)
1640. La mappa ha la sua principale fonte nel primo stato dell'opera realizzata da Smith nel 1612, sebbene sia leggermente più larga e più finemente incisa. Nel 1629 la lastra di Hondius venne acquistata da Blaeu il quale ne cancellò il nome per sostituirlo con il suo, da cui il secondo stato. La mappa è conosciuta anche per la sua rappresentazione, in alto a destra, di Capo Powhatan, che agita la sua pipa mentre è seduto, come recita la didascalia, come quando il capitano John Smith veniva condotto da lui come prigioniero. Smith non era solito servirsi dell'assistenza dei nativi per aggiungere informazioni alle sue opera. Questa mappa rappresenta la prima versione ampiamente diffusa dell'opera di Smith e, conseguentemente, importante riferimento per le altre mappe dell'epoca, tanto da divenire modello della regione fino alla pubblicazione dell'opera di Augustine Hermanns nel 1673. L'opera è una delle rappresentazioni più dettagliate della regione del Chesapeake, apprezzata dai collezionisti di mappe della zona. Bibliografia: Burden 193. Editione latina dal atlante di Blaeu. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. The map is based on the first state of Smith's map, 1612, and is slightly larger and more expertly engraved. In 1629 the Hondius plate was purchased by Blaeu who deleted Hondius' name and added his own to the imprint, constituting the second state. The map is, in part, famous for its depiction, upper left, of Chief Powhatan, waving his tobacco pipe, and seated, as the caption says, in state when Capt. John Smith was delivered t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Buxtorf, Johann, the elder.
Sumptibus et typis Ludovici König, 1640. Second edition of the second Biblical Hebrew-Latin dictionary compiled by Johann Buxtorf the Elder (1564-1629), left incomplete at his death and completed and published by his son in 1639. A leading Hebraist of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Buxtorf taught Hebrew at Basel for nearly 40 years, and was a friend and correspondent of Bezè and Grynaeus.

The text is printed in double columns in Hebrew and Latin, in roman and italic, sparsely decorated with woodcut head- and tailpieces, ornaments, and one large historiated initial. The title-page is preceded by a => full-page engraved portrait of the author and an added engraved title-page dated 1639, in an allegorical frame flanked by figures of Daniel and Esra with an image of the Tower of Babel above and a king praying in a gothic cathedral below. Provenance: Engraved title-page with minute owner's inscription dated 1723 of => Ernst Wilh[elm] Christoph Christfels of Fürth, Germany, who published a treatise, "Concerning Ialtha, daughter of the prince, an example of the learned women of the Jewish race," in 1725, citing Buxtorf's Institutio epistolaris hebraica of 1629 at least once (and using this dictionary for the Hebrew vocabulary?).

JANSSONIUS JOANNES
1640. Copper engraving, mm 465x550, original color.The only map of north America printed during the dutch Golden Age and the map that had a "greater influence than any other to date in perpetuating the theory of California as an island...None of the earlier California as an island maps had reached such a wide audience..." (Burden)A most decorative map of North America, with California an island, embellished with animals, sailing ships and monsters in the oceans. It is a composition of the best cartographic sources. The "Rio del Norto" originates in a large western lake and flows incorrectly into the "Mare Vermio". The cartography of the Gulf of Mexico and Florida is based on Hessel Gerritsz. On the east coast the region identified as "Novum Belgium" is greatly elongated, "Iames Towne" and a few place names from John Smith's map appear in "Nova Anglia". There is a single "Lac des Iroquois" in the Great Lakes region. The east coast, however, is harder to define; the south-east appears to be quite generic in form. It is the area north of here that does not appear to be from a particular source. The Chesapeake Bay area is defined in about as much detail as the scale and style of the map will allow, Iames Towne being clearly identifiedTitle cartouche decorated with several natives.The first atlas map to show North America only, the first widely disseminated map of California as an island. Second state, no text on verso. Very good condition.Burden 245; McLaughlin 6; Koeman Vol. II, p.397, no. 486; Tooley p.113.

Church of England
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An extremely important first edition of 'Reformatio Legum Ecclesiasticarum', a work on ecclesiastical law when Henry VIII initiated the English Reformation and separation of the Church of England from the Catholic Church and papal rule. Thomas Cranmer was closely tied to the king, both politically and as a friend, and was an important figure in the development of this work. This work established laws and regulations for the church including prayer, music, testimony, excommunication, judicial cases, and political ties to the church. Other topics covered in this work involved domestic disputes such as divorce, as well as more controversial topics including calling nonconformity to the church 'superstitions and idolatrous'. (Hawkins II, 537). This 1640 reworking of the 'Thirty Nine Articles' was translated out of the original English and into Latin by John Cheke, and, in 1553, were reportedly published in the name of King Henry VIII. This translation was the beginning of what would lead to Thomas Cranmer's being burned alive. Much of the contents of this compilation was used by John Foxe in his portrayal of Cranmer in his 'Book of Martyrs'. According to the British Museum Catalogue, this work is "A code of ecclesiastical law, intended for use in the Church of England, but never ratified by Parliament. Drawn up in 1552 by Commissioners headed by Thomas Cranmer. Edited, with the later additions and amendments of Matthew Parker, by John Fox, the martyrologist.". [Attributes: First Edition]

I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Francesco Guicciardini was an early 15th-century Italian historian known for his masterpiece 'The History of Italy.' This work was monumental in that it established a new style of historical study and helped historians in how they would write historical works. This work specifically provided detailed accounts of Italian politics from 1490 to 1534 including character traits of Pope Clement VII. This scarce 1640 Venetian edition includes marginal notes and commentary throughout of Thomaso Porcacchi and Remigio Nannini. [Attributes: First Edition]

LAIRESSE, Gerard de.
Bierens de Haan 2609; Kunst op schrift 137. Second edition of a popular practical manual teaching the art of drawing by the famous Dutch painter Gerard de Lairesse (1640-1711). The book is divided into two parts, the first part teaching young children in 12 lessons the principles of drawing based on geometry, and in the second part a more advanced course is given in 10 so-called "propositions" for professional art students, including a detailed plan for the installation of an Art Academy. Gerard de Lairesse, sometimes called the Dutch Poussin, devoted himself to teaching after he became blind in 1690. Being a classicist, his theories were mainly based on Junius's De pictura Veterum, and on Charles Dufresnoy's De arte graphica, but the practical side of his teaching, based on his own lifelong experience, gives his text books their special interest and importance.The treatise by Segner teaches how to construct lamps which were economic and efficient and also spared the artist's eye-sight. The plates extensively show how to construct such lamps as well as their oil-reservoirs. Slightly browned, with some faint, marginal foxing on only a few pages. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities with some restorations to the spine. A very good copy in attractive binding.

Verdussen's Brussels editions (1706 or 1728) of Antonio de Herrera's Historia genaral de las Indias occidentales (cf. Palau 114289, Sabin 31545); one probably from Ant. de Solis y Rivadeneyra, Historia de la conquista de Mexico (Brussels, Foppen, 1705).Binding used, spine damaged; some thumbing, a few tears, portrait of Diego de Almagro torn.

De Backer & Sommervogel III, cols. 1640-1641; WorldCat (6 copies); not in Lust. Rare first edition of an extensive account of several scientific observations made to improve the astronomical and geographical information on regions in China and India.

Other reports concern, among others, Cassini's tables of Jupiter's satellites, Tartary at the frontier with China, a journey from the Junnam province in China to the city of Ava as it was made by some 30,000 Chinese fleeing from Tartary, and observations on a comet that had appeared in 1689. All these reports were collected and provided with commentaries by father Thomas Gouye (1650-1725). The two engraved maps depict a part of India, one showing the course of the river Ganges and the other the course of the river Ava. The engraved plate depicts the different letters and numbers of the Bengali language.With a tiny inscription (shelf mark?) on title-page. Slightly browned, title-page slightly thumbed, some occasional small spots, 1 map water stained in the margins, lower corner of page 63 torn off, but overall in good condition.
