SELDEN JOHN
excudebat Richardus Bishopius, 1640. Cm. 32, pp. (40) 847 (1) + 1 c.b. Frontespizio in rosso e nero, graziosi capilettera e numerose incisioni xilografiche n.t. Testo in latino ed ebraico. Legatura coeva alle armi in piena pelle [armi di Chrétien-François de Lamoignon de Basville (1735-1789), magistrato e statista francese]; dorso a 6 nervi con titoli e monogrammi in oro agli scomparti; armi al centro dei due piatti inquadrati da triplice filetto dorato. Mancanze di pelle alla legatura (soprattutto in corrispondenza della cerniera anteriore ma con piatti ancora ben saldi, cuffie e punte). Sporadiche arrossature/fioriture, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. John Selden (1584-1654), definito da Ugo Grozio la "gloria dell'Inghilterra", è ritenuto uno dei più originali e influenti intellettuali del Seicento inglese. Le sue posizioni sulla condizione ebraica, la difesa della libertà di stampa e l'elaborazione di un sistema di diritto naturale incardinato sulle leggi ebraiche, gli procurarono inimicizie politiche, l'avversione della chiesa anglicana e soprattutto numerose incarcerazioni. Quest'opera è ritenuta di capitale importanza nell'ambito delle pubblicazioni seicentesche dedicate al giusnaturalismo e alla tradizione ebraica. Rarissima prima edizione in folio, seguita dalle edizioni in quarto stampate nel 1665, 1695 e 1712. Cfr. Iccu; Graesse, VI, 343..

In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Willem Janszoon BLAEU (Uitgeest 1571- Amsterdam 1638)
1640. Mappa di Blaeu della parte sudorientale del Nord America. La mappa mostra la regione dalla Florida del nord alla baia di Chesapeake. La Francia è ancora indicata come stato regnante sulla parte meridionale di queste colonie sebbene fosse stata già da tempo sostituita dalla Spagna, mentre la parte nord-est risulta governata dalla Gran Bretagna. Come indicato da Burden, questa di Blaeu fornisce la migliore rappresentazione della regione fino al 1700, anche rispetto alla mappa di Hondius-Mercator. Il cartiglio decorativo con il titolo circondato da figure di nativi americani, in alto, e l'elaborata calligrafia contribuiscono a renderla una delle mappe di maggior successo artistico dell'America del XVII secolo. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Blaeu's map of the southeastern portion of North America. The map depicts the region from present day northern Florida to Chesapeake Bay. France is shown as governing the southern portion of this land (though they had been forced out in fact some time before by the Spanish) and Great Britain as ruler of the northeast. As pointed out by Burden, this map improves on the Hondius-Mercator map of the same region, and it provided the best depiction of the region until 1700. Its handsome cartouche surrounded by full figure Native Americans and its elaborate calligraphy contribute to make it one of the most artistically successful maps of 17th century America. Copperplate with fine later hand colour, very good condition. Cumming, 41; Burden, The Mapping of North America, 253; Goss, 31
