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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

BACON (Francis)
- 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.

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.

BEROALDO, Filippo].
1640. KVK & WorldCat (1 copy); cf. Kruyskamp, Jan Mommaert en het "Stichtelyck Proces", in: Het Boek XXX, pp. 306-312 (1640 ed.). Second known copy of the third edition (1635) of a rare satirical Dutch adaptation (first and second editions 1634) of a moralistic story in Latin by Filippo Beroaldo (1453-1505), possibly intended in this adaptation to satirize the Princes of Orange. The quotations from classical sources are given in Latin, each followed by a Dutch verse translation that takes some liberties with the text. Pieter Nootmans (active 1627-1635) contributed a verse about the book, printed on the back of the title-page. Following the main text is a drinking song by H. Rulant (active 1632-1634), with its own part-title, which had been published separately in 1632. We have located only one other copy of the present edition, in the library of Tresoar in Leeuwarden.The British Library database of bindings includes one binding by this Ghent binder. The title-page is worn and dirty, with a small abrasion obliterating the letter S in "Stichtigh", and the upper outside corner of the last leaf has been restored, with the loss of a few words of the text of the added drinking song. The binding is good, with some cracks in the hinges and minor damage along the edges.

PARKINSON, John.
London: Thomas Cotes, 1640. Folio, with elaborately engraved title-page and about 2700 woodcut illustrations in the text; in an attractive later binding of smooth polished calf, with the armorial bookplate of "Brodie of Brodie" An especially good copy of this famous and beautiful English herbal, 'one of the two main pillars of botany in England till the time of Ray' (James Edward Smith). The largest herbal in English, this was also the last great medicinally-based plant study, by an author who thought of himself as first and foremost an apothecary.Early botanical works were frequently illustrated with original woodcuts, and this book is a marvellous example of the impressive beauty that the relatively naïve method of woodcut illustration conveys in a botanical work, with a flower portrayed in line in singular contrast to the accompanying botanical description: altogether two thousand seven hundred woodblocks were individually cut for this massive herbal, which describes more than four thousand plants, most of them with medicinal properties.Parkinson had given notice of his intention to compile an herbal in his Paradisus terrestris of 1629, but was delayed by the publication of the second Johnson edition of Gerarde's Herball, in 1636. This delay meant that Parkinson's work had time to grow much larger than originally planned, and on publication it included about one thousand more plants than Gerarde could, and describes many species not previously recorded.Natural history collecting in exotic lands was actively pursued from the earliest period of botanical study, and the ear … [Click Below for Full Description]

Parkinson, John.
First edition: Over 3,000 species and their virtues described for the use of apothecaries and herbalists. Parkinson (1567-1650), who served officially as Royal Botanist to Charles I and unofficially as gardening mentor to his queen, Henrietta Maria, was also one of the founders of the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries -- to which the allegorical frontispiece here may refer with the rhinoceros in its upper portion. The author of Paradisi in sole paradisus terrestris, Parkinson was much acclaimed by his contemporaries and by later botanists; Henrey cites Sir James Edward Smith's assessment that "this work [the Theatrum botanicum] and the herbal of Gerarde were the two main pillars of botany in England till the time of Ray." Gerard and Parkinson indeed competed in publication, with the printing of the present work having been delayed several years so as to avoid marketplace clash with Johnson's edition of Gerard's herbal. In the present work, Parkinson divided the plants by classes such as "Sweete smelling Plants," "Purging Plants," saxifrages, wound herbs, cooling herbs, "Strange and Outlandish Plants," etc. Most of the entries are illustrated with in-text woodcuts, interspersed with pages wholly occupied by four images. Among the Americana content here are descriptions of Virginia bluebells, Peruvian mechacan, potatoes, and an assortment of "Ginny peppers" (with dire warnings regarding their fiery hotness); also present are => 28 previously unrecorded British species, including the strawberry tree and the lady's slipper orchid. The index and tables are organized by L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Félix de JOUVENEL des URSINS, Félix de JUVENEL
AN IMPORTANT 917 PAGE FOLIO MANUSCRIPT (no author or date specified), of an original work preserved by the heirs of the author, Félix Jouvenel des Ursins (also known as Jouvenel or Juvenal, 1617 - ?). Jouvenel, a noted scholar who devoted his life to his studies, was the author of a number of works.The manuscript is mentioned in Antoine-Alexandre Barbier's Examen critique et complément des dictionnaires historiques of 1820.Written in a fine, clear hand with numerous additions, corrections, crossings-out and marginal notes.Bound in full contemporary vellum. Spine titled in black ink (partly illegible), ties, stitching visible. Tear to head, some staining to covers. A few spots, but the paper well preserved. Large engraved armorial ex-libris of Henri de Juvenel, Châtelain of Montpezat (1810-1875) inside upper cover. The manuscript can be dated to between 1640 and 1645 thanks to the author's references to early 17th century works as his principal historiographical sources, and especially to the following observation: "in any case, it has come to pass that in our time, the chronicles of the Moor Abulcaçim Tarif Abentarique have been translated from Arabic into Spanish."Several things confirm that this is Jouvenel's original manuscript. The spelling of the words "défaicte", "loing", "mesprisable", "enfans", "tesmoing" (p. 160) and "autresfois" (p. 83) are in accordance with that established in Jean Nicot's Thresor de la langue francoyse of 1606. The spelling of these words changed during the 17th century and by 1694 the Dictionnaire de l'Académie has them as: "defaite", "loin", … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACHIAVELLI, NICCOLÒ
London: R. Bishop for William Hils & Daniel Pakeman, 1640. First edition in English of one of the great books of the Renaissance and a classic of political philosophy. Machiavelli, long a diplomat for the Florentine Republic, was personally acquainted with many of the great leaders of the Renaissance including Lorenzo de Medici (the dedicatee of Il Principe), Louis XII of France, Emperor Maximilian, Catherine Sforza, and Piero Soderini. In 1502 he was sent as the Florentine envoy to the court of Cesare Borgia, duke of Valentinois. In Borgia he found an audacious and strong willed leader capable of deception and violence to achieve his ends, yet a man who appeared at all times both controlled and diplomatically prudent. Borgia provided the model for Machiavelli’s ideal prince, Valentino. His book addressed the problem of the unification of a self-reliant Italy. “It was Machiavelli’s intense preoccupation with this problem– what a state is and how to found one in existing circumstances– which caused the many riddles of his speculative writings He was by no means indifferent to private virtue but in the realm of politics he postponed morals to political expediency” (Britannica 11th ed.). “The Prince is far more than a book of directions to any one of the many Italian princelings. 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. Many of the remedies he proposed for the rescue of Italy were eventually applied. His concept of the qualities dem … [Click Below for Full Description]
