BLAEU WILLEM.
Incisione in rame, coloritura originale d'epoca, 412x502. Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) fu allievo di Tycho Brahe, e fondò ad Amsterdam nel 1599 un'officina per la produzione di strumenti astronomici e globi, che in breve tempo pubblicò anche carte geografiche e nautiche; nel 1630 fu dato alle stampe il primo atlante: Atlantis Appendix composto da 60 carte. Nel 1635 Blaeu pubblicò i primi due volumi dell'Atlas Novus, ampliato dopo la sua morte dai figli fino a giungere nel 1662 all'Atlas Major in 9-12 voll. e contenente circa 600 carte geografiche. L'attività dei Blaeu terminò nel 1672 a causa di un incendio; le lastre salvate furono vendute a De Wit, Schenk e Valck. Esemplare ben conservato con foglio lievemente arrossato e con leggerissime tracce d'umido ai margini.

Bleau, Willem and Johannes
Americas: Amsterdam: Johannes and Cornelius Blaeu. 1640 [but 1643-1645].. Copper engraved map of Bermuda from the 2nd edition of Blaeu's " Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas" Vol 2 .'This edition ... is a much more advanced one than the edition of 1638/1640. The text has been reset' (Van der Krogt) Original outline colour; French text to verso. Decorative title cartouche showing Neptune astride the Royal Arms holding a ship. The miniature map below the cartouche shows the correct proportion of the island to the coast of the mainland. The map is superimposed over a map of the Atlantic with the coastlines of Britain, North America and Hispaniola, showing the location of Bermuda. Bright and clean; light toning to edges of blank margins. Blaeu based this work on John Speed's remarkably accurate map of 1626-1627. It shows the island divided into tribes and lots, and below the map itself appear the names of the first proprietors and the number of shares assigned each. The "Sea Venture" under Sir George Somers was wrecked off Bermuda in 1609 and the surviving Englishmen divided the island into Tribes (later Parishes) and Shares, which are individually listed with their owners at the foot of the map. Shortly afterwards the Bermudas were granted to the Virginia Company, hence various references to the Company on the map including the distance to the Roanoke Colony in Virginia. Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix" … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blaeu:
Amsterdam, 1640. Copper engraving, 37.5 x 49 cms, original hand-colour, French text on verso. The earliest detailed map of the Maluku Islands, part of the mountainous, volcanic archipelago known to Europeans as the ‘spice islands’ and the focus of Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and English attempts to control the lucrative spice trade, in which the Dutch East India Company was ultimately successful. Willem Blaeu and his son Johannes were official cartographers to the V.O.C.

Blaeu:
Amsterdam, 1640. Copper engraving, 38 x 49 cms, original hand-colour, French text on verso. A decorative map of Morocco, though in Blaeu's day this part of northwest Africa was divided between the flourishing kingdoms of Morocco and Fez. The orientation of the map is East-West, which is why Spain and the Straits of Gibraltar, which are to the North, are on the right of the map. The cartouche, flanked by satyrs, credits Ortelius. Parts of this region had been incorporated in the Roman Empire (for example, Tangiers was the Roman Tingis), but in the seventeenth-century European interest was mainly due to the coastal towns which were under Spanish or Portugese control, such as Tangiers and Ceuta which had become important commercial centres, and to the major threat of Moorish piracy from other towns along the coast. This map was first printed in 1635 but continued to appear throughout the century. Tangiers was briefly in English hands. It was ceded to Charles II on the occasion of his marriage to Catherine of Braganza in 1662, but was abandoned to the Moors twenty years later.

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt: 1640, 2nd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 20 3/4 x 16 3/8 inches. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

Small wormhole in upper margin of some leaves, 3Y6 and 3Z1-2 with tears mended, margins of 2 leaves of index strengthened, last leaf (errata) with a small hole affecting about 7 words and laid down, all the repairs apparently done at a very early date, indeed the wormhole in the index goes through the repair paper (the first time I have seen this), old reversed calf, morocco label, joints repaired, corners a little worn. Despite these blemishes this remains a good copy of a herbal which is difficult to find complete, let alone in good condition. The author, a London pharmacist, received the title of Royal Apothecary from James I. Later Charles I appointed him as his chief botanist ("Botanicus Regius Primarius"). He had a private garden in Long Acre (Theatrum p.609) in which he grew many rarities. Work on his herbal, which was delayed for a number of years by the success of Johnson's edition of Gerarde, was greatly helped by the unpublished notes of the French botanist, Matthias L'Obel, who had lived in North London for the last years of his life. The result was an enormous folio work containing descriptions of nearly 4,000 plants (almost 1,000 more than the 1636 Gerarde) including some twenty-eight species not previously recorded in Britain. The most important of these were the str … [Click Below for Full Description]

The nomenclature of the North American part is virtually identical, the only notable addition being the naming of Virginia.

Early armorial bookplate of Exeter College, and nineteenth century armorial bookplate of Alexander Thomson of Banchory, on front pastedown. The chronica majora of the thirteenth-century historian and monk Matthew Paris, "one of the most valuable and frequently consulted of the all the ancient English chronicles" (Blackstone), was first published in an edition prepared by Archbishop Parker in 1551. The present edition is by William Watts, who corrected numerous errors in his predecessor's work, added variant readings, adversaria, a glossary and an index. Like Parker's, his edition extends from 1067 to 1272, but he adds other works written by or attributed to Paris, together with numerous related documents, and "in the great learning which it embodied, it was one of the most notable productions of its time." (Douglas) This was the authoritative text, used by Dugdale and Selden, and the 1684 reprint was one of the few English chronicles owned by Gibbon (Keynes p.212).
