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.

GUICCIARDINI, Francesco
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]

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]

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.

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. The work contains several reports on China and Siam, made by various Jesuits, including father Richaud who comments on the astronomy and calendar of the Siamese, and François Noël who calculated the longitude and latitude of several villages in China. 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.

BLAEU, WILLEM
"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 vo … [Click Below for Full Description]

1640 ORIGINAL SIGNED HAND-WRITTEN SPEECH BY SIR JOHN CULPEPER! FIRST TIME EVER LISTED! A UNITED KINGDOM NATIONAL TREASURE! SIR JOHN CULPEPER'S 4-PAGE HAND-WRITTEN MANUSCRIPT SPEECH TO PARLIAMENT ON 9 NOVEMBER 1640 THE GREATEST SPEECH AGAINST MONOPOLIES EVER DELIVERED! ON 2 TALL DOUBLE SIDED FOLIO LEAVES! SIR JOHN CULPEPER (b. 7 AUG 1600 - d. 11 JULY 1660) Among the remarkable speeches reported by John Nalson in his 'Impartial Collection of Great Affairs of State' (London §: 1682), perhaps the most remarkable is that in which Sir John Culpeper (afterwards Lord Colepeper) denounced monopolies. Sir John Culpeper was elected to represent Kent in the Parliament of 1640, at a time when English eloquence was just beginning to develop its full powers under the stimulus of passion provoked by Charles the First's abuse of what he claimed as his divine right. In a speech delivered on the same day on which Culpeper spoke, Lord Digby defined the chief of these abuses as follows:- 1. The great and intolerable burthen of ship-money, touching the legality whereof they are unsatisfied. 2. The many great abuses in pressing the soldiers, and raising moneys concerning the same. 3. The multitude of monopolies. 4. The new canon, and the oath to be taken by lawyers, divines, etc. 5. The oath required to be taken by church officers according to articles new and unusual. Culpeper's celebrated characterization of the monopolies under Charles I. has not had general currency as a quotation in later discussions of the same subject, but it is doubtful if it has been equaled, or even closely approached b … [Click Below for Full Description]

James Shirley The Coronation. A Comedy. Written by John Fletcher, Gent. London: Printed by Tho[mas] Cotes, for Andrew Crooke, and William Cooke. and are to be sold at the signe of the Greene Dragon, in Pauls Church-yard, 1640. Woodcut vignette on title-page, woodcut initial and headpieces, some headpieces composed of printer's ornaments; inkstains on margin of title-page and one hole costing several letters on the verso, pages somewhat browned. First edition. Sm. 4to. Pencil marking on verso. Gift inscription in pen on ffep. Interior quite clean considering the book's age. In remarkably good condition. The Coronation is a Caroline era stage play, a tragicomedy written by James Shirley, and notable for the tug-of-war of authorship claims in which it was involved in the middle seventeenth century. The first edition of The Coronation was issued in 1640 in a quarto printed by Thomas Cotes for the booksellers Andrew Crooke and William Cooke. And the authorship of the play was assigned to John Fletcher. Fletcher succeeded Shakespeare as the house playwright for the King's men, and was regarded as Shakespeare's equal in his day.

Fine binding. 5 raised bands. Gilt flourish and title to spine. Restoration to title page. Some toning, spotting and marginal soiling/staining. Offsetting to woodcuts. Dampstaining, corrosion to first leaves with loss to text. Occasional old ink corrections and marginalia. Final leaf remounted. <br><br> Parkinson held the position of Botanicus Regius Primarius to Charles I and Apothecary to James I. Parkinson's Theatrum Botanicum is the largest of the English herbals (nearly double that of the first edition of Gerard's). "While Parkinson's reputation was established by the appearance of his Paradisus in 1629, the latter was overshadowed by the publication in 1640 of what was his much greater work, the Theatrum Botanicum . This digest attempted the description of nearly 4,000 plants, almost 1000 more than were contained in Johnson's edition of Gerard. The descriptions in many instances are new and great care was exercised to secure accuracy in indicating localities."- Green. The Botanicum was the most complete and beautifully presented English botanical treatise of its day. "One of the two main pillars of botany in England at the time of Ray" (Henrey). Parkinson's work, although based on Matthias L'Obel's works, was in large part original. It was the first work to describe 33 native plants, 13 of which grew near Parkinson's Middlesex home. Some of these plants, such as the Welsh … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cambridge, R. Daniel for Thomas Buck, 1640. Small folio, pp. [xvi], 286, [2, blank], [28], with an engraved frontispiece and a folding map; one leaf (A1) slightly stained, but an excellent copy in eighteenth-century English calf, spine gilt and with red morocco label lettered in gilt; rubbed and slightly marked, front inner hinge strengthened, short split at head of upper joint; armorial bookplate of Rainald, Baron Knightley to front pastedown.First published the previous year. 'In 1639 Fuller's first major literary and historical work, The Historie of the Holy Warre, was published by the university press at Cambridge. The book was prefaced by commendatory verses by friends at Sidney Sussex, Queens', Corpus Christi, Jesus, and Trinity colleges. It was the first modern history of the crusades in English, aside from the account in Richard Knolles, Generall Historie of the Turks (1603), and was based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources. He was sharply critical of the papacy for promoting the wars in the Holy Land and he analysed shrewdly the reasons for the movement's eventual failure' (Oxford DNB). A short chapter at the end concerns 'the greatnesse, strength, wealth, and wants of the Turkish empire'.Provenance: Rainald, Baron Knightley (1819-1895), of Fawsley Park, long-serving Conservative member of parliament for Northamptonshire and leading authority on whist.ESTC S121254.

Ovidius Naso, Publius ; Valentijn, Abraham (vert.)
Contemporary parchment binding. 150 x 90 mm, 12º: (dl 1:) pi2 *6 (-*4) A-K#12 L#8, [14] 256 pp.; (dl 2:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 382 pp.; (dl 3:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 338 [44] pp. Three identical engraved title pages with a circular portrait engraving. Part II has 15 etchings by C[oenraad] Decker. Little foxing, good copy. Prose translation (prozavertaling) of the complete works of Ovid (and more, because some poems are now known not to be Ovid’s). The works are arranged in the usual chronological order: first the heroines letters (Heldinnenbrieven) and erotic poetry (erotische poezie), then the metamorphoses, illustrated with 15 engravings by C Decker and in part III the incomplete calendar (only six of the 12 months) and mourning songs and letters from the Black Sea. These last two titles were written by Ovid while he was in exile. The translator, Abraham Valentijn (1640 – after 1697) was preceptor and rector at the Latin School in Dordrecht and from 1681 also the librarian for the Dordrecht city library. In his dedication to Mayor Adriaan van Blyenborch, he blames previous Ovid translators that they had not studied Greek historians and poets enough, thus "op tallijke blinde klippen gestooten sijn" (which means that they had a lot of difficulties translating). The 15 prints by Decker for the first edition of Valentijn’s translation, which appeared at Daniel Gaasbeeck at Leiden, are only a small part of the originally intended prints. When you read the message to the binder in the back, you’ll see that there was another set of prints (124 pieces!) that could have been bound with the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Machiavelli, Niccolo
R. Bishop for Wil: Hils, London. Rare first edition in English of Machiavelli's Prince, a seminal work in the foundation of modern political theory, and the great classic of political science. 12 mo, bound in full contemporary calf. From the library of William Constable, Baronet with his bookplate, in near fine condition. Housed in a custom full morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, most rare and desirable in this condition. "Machiavelli founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind. Politics was a science to be divorced entirely from ethics, and nothing must stand in the way of its machinery,.'for when a decision to be taken depends on the survival of one's country, no consideration may be given to justice or injustice, to kindness or cruelty, to actions being laudable or ignominious. That course must be followed which will save its existence and preserve its freedom" (PMM 63). The first manuscript of The Prince arrived in England by way of Thomas Cromwell almost 100 years before this 1640 publication in English, and the influence of "this little work" was great. Shakespeare and Marlowe abound with references to Machiavelli. His seemingly amoral stance earned him a villainous reputation in Elizabethan England, where his name was synonymous with evil and atheism (Lord Macaulay wrote: "We doubt whether any name in literary history be so generally odious"), but his keen and practical analysis were admired by such important Enlightenment figures as Bacon, Rousseau, and above all David Hume (Smith 32).

With an initial leaf, blank except for a fleuron, and a terminal imprimatur leaf. Title in red and black. Later blind-tooled calf, gilt. Extremities worn, insect damage, surface loss, and marking to boards. Shelf-label of the Porkington Library to FEP, occasional ink-spotting, family chronology to recto of initial blank leaf, pen-trials to title-page, p.146, and imprimatur leaf. The first translation into English of Ovid's Fasti, done by Master of Arts John Gower, graduate of Jesus College, Cambridge. The dedication, to John Etheridge, Vicar of Halstead, Essex and former fellow of Queen's College Cambridge (1615-1626), is signed Edward Alliston and suggests that the work was printed posthumously. Thereafter follows an epistle in tribute to the translator signed Isaac Tinckler, which contains the somewhat condescending line: 'Now Ovid hath his wish, that he may be / In English read upon a Ladies knee.' The work includes a life of the Roman poet, as well as an adaptation of 'Clio's complaint for the death of Ovid'. A concurrently printed variant (STC 18948.5) omits Sparke's name in imprint.
