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.)

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 wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

- Paris, Pierre Rocolet, 1640. In-12 (140 x 81 mm), plein vélin souple de l'époque, dos titré à la plume, (24), 345, (3) p. (dernier feuillet bl.) dont titre frontispice gravé. Première édition de cette anthologie en français, en partie tirée du ‘De dignitate et Augmentis scientiarum’ (1623) et du recueil ‘Opera Moralia et Civilia’ édité par W. Rawley en 1638. Le frontispice représente l’allégorie de la Prudence se saisissant de l'Occasion. Sous forme de préceptes ou de courts essais, Bacon recherche les conduites psychologiques et morales pour parvenir à la réussite personnelle et sociale - "l’art de parvenir" - mais aussi l’art de gouverner, en défendant, contre Machiavel, l'efficacité de la vertu. Jean Baudouin, le traducteur, était lecteur de la reine Marguerite et devint l'un des premiers membres de l’Académie française (1634). Il était pourvu d'un privilège pour la traduction de toutes les œuvres de Bacon dont fut l'un de ses grands passeurs en France. (Gibson, ‘Bacon, A Bibliography of his Works’, n°139). L'ouvrage est rare: seulement 3 ex. recensés dans les bibliothèques françaises (CCFr). Galerie de vers en marge inf. des 50 dern. feuillets sans atteinte au texte. Quelques rousseurs. Qqs pet. soulign. au crayon. Bon exemplaire, dans sa première reliure de vélin souple.

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 volumes wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

?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.

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).

Giovanni Botero (1533–1617) was Secretary to the Duke of Savoy when he compiled his Relationi Universali; "this political and geographical description of the different countries of the world was very successful and translated into a number of languages" (Burden), including English (London 1603). Burden also notes that "for this issue [of 1640] by I. Giunti, a new set of copperplates was cut derived from those of earlier editions.

They cover many aspects of political and economic life, as well as giving some historical and military assessments and aspects of the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Maximilien de Béthune, first Duke of Sully (13 December 1560 - 22 December 1641) was the valiant soldier, French minister, staunch Huguenot (Protestant) and faithful right-hand man who assisted king Henry IV of France in the rule of France. Historians emphasize Sully's role in building a strong centralized administrative system in France using coercion and highly effective new administrative techniques. From 1596, when he was added to Henry's finance commission, Sully introduced some order into France's economic affairs. Acting as sole Superintendent of Finances at the end of 1601, he author … [Click Below for Full Description]
