BLAEU, G.
Amsterdam 1640 - Stato di Milano This highly colorful map shows the area surrounding Milan, the capital of the region of Lombardy and the other provinces within northern Italy. This map illustrates as far east as Lake Garda and westward past Lake Maggiore to the Swiss border. Included are numerous city centers and castles, each highlighted with red coloring: Como (also noting Lake Como), Vercelli, Turin, Bergamo, Piacenza, Parma and more. Very brilliant original coloring. From a talented and noted Dutch mapmaking family, Willem Janszoon Blaeu (whom also went by Guilielmus Blaeu) was born at Alkmaar, the Netherlands in 1571 and trained in astronomy and the sciences by Tycho Brahe, the celebrated Danish astronomer. In 1599, Blaeu began to make globes and instruments, however, it was not long before the business expanded to include publishing maps, topographical works and books of sea charts. His great skill was recognized by the Dutch East India Company and in 1630 he was appointed their official cartographer, giving him access to the most accurate geographical information available. During his prodigious career Blaeu was to produce several atlases including the Atlantis Appendix of 1630. Five years later, the first two volumes of his planned world atlas, Atlas Novus or the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum were issued. BLAEU, G.

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt 1640 - Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on the top margin. 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.

[Bougeant, Guillaume Hyacinthe, S.J.].
Three anti-Jansenist plays All four three concern the bitter theological, and also legal rivalries, that inflamed French intellectuals from the late 17th century, surrounding the ideas of Cornelius Jansen who published his Augustianis in 1640. The rivalry had a great impact in the legal professions, in their fight against the crown, but also it showed up on the stage beginning with the strong Janesim of Racine, and the ridicule of mysticism by Moliere, and in the arch-scroundel Tartuffe, and extending into the 18th century. the three plays 8vo. bound together in contemporary calf, back gilt in compartments; corners worn and some light surface shelf-wear. Very nice condition. [Bougeant, Guillaume Hyacinthe, S.J.]. Arlequin Janseniste, ou critique de la femme docteur, comedie. "Cracovie" [i.e., Douai]: "Chez Jean le Sincere, Imprimeur Perpetuel", 1732. 8vo, [2] leaves, 172 pp., [1] blank leaf. First edition under this title of an Anti-Jansenist Satire by the French Jesuit historian Guillaume Hyacinthe Bougeant (1690-1743). The play was first published the previous year under the title Critique de la femme docteur. Bougeant's La Femme docteur 1730 (see next entry) , which had an enormous success, dealt with the then current theological quarrels between the Jansenists and the Molinists. In the present Arlequin Janseniste, Bougeant defends his original play against the attacks of the Jansenists and sides with the Molinists.

Villedieu, Marie-Catherine-Hortense de (1640?-1683). Memoires de la vie de Henriette-Sylvie de Moliere. Premiere [-Seconde] Partie. Paris: C. Barbin, 1671. Rare 1671 imprint of Parts I & II of the Memoires, eventually issued in six parts in 1674. (Also issued 1672 as Les avantures ou memoires de la vie de Henriette Sylvie de Moliere). 12mo. 19th century cloth. 78, 69pp. Each part with separate title page. A-C12, D6; A-B12, C11. Very good copy with slight darkening to pages of first part. Memoires de la vie de Henriette-Sylvie is an epistolary novel from a character's point of view: an author who has often been subject to false accounts of her life and character. "In time the heroine realizes the futility of attempting to control her reputation by telling the truth. Instead she opts to participate in the circulation of the rumors, while maintaining an ironic distance from false accounts, and recognizing the inevitability of unkind gossip" (Lalande who suggests many autobiographical events between the novel and the life of Desjardines). Completed in 1674, "the Memoires comprises six long, first-person letters... [that] tell the story of an abandoned infant of uncertain parentage who, as a young woman, is thrown out into the world on her own after her foster father attempts to rape her. The Memoires is neither an autobiography, nor a novel, nor memoir, nor an epistolary novel, but a text that has something of all these genres... This is her most striking work. The text, which has a number of picaresque elements, skillfully mixes real events from the author' … [Click Below for Full Description]

Besler, Basilus
Nuremburg, 1640. Second & preferred edition. Published in an edition of 300 in 1613, the Hortus Eysttensis is the earliest large folio botanical and is considered one of the greatest botanical books ever created. This is a very strong impression, with an early hand notating the species names in German below the label for each flower. Archivally framed. The fresh, strong impression & absence of any bleed-through of text from the verso would suggest that this is the second & preferred edition, published in 1640, but it cannot be categorically stated because of the framing.

D'Allemagne, Henry Rene. Le noble jeu de l'oie en France de 1640 a 1950. Quarante-huit tableaux et notices. La vie quotidienne a Paris de 1820 a 1824, d'apres les lithographies de Marlet et de Carle Vernet. Paris: Grund, 1950-1951. 4to. (335 x 250 mm). 237pp., cartonnage illustre en couleurs sur le premier plat. (Reliure de l"editeur.) Original edition of 700, this is no. 300. Ce magnifique ouvrage de reference sur le sujet, est illustree par 110 illustrations dans le texte et 48 gravures hors-texte dont 9 en couleurs de Jean Kerhor. The Game of the Goose (Das Gansespiel (german), Gioco dell'oca (italian), Jeu de l'oie (french), Juego de la Oca (spanish), Ganzenbord (dutch), Gaspelet (swedish) is thought to be the prototype for many of the commercial European racing board games of recent centuries. The game is therefore mostly played in Europe and seen as family entertainment. Commercial versions of the game appeared in the 1880s and 1890s, and feature typical old European characteristics such as an old well and kids in clothes from the period. It is claimed that the game was originally a gift from Francesco I de' Medici of Florence to King Philip II of Spain sometime between 1574 and 1587. In June 1597 John Wolfe had attested that the game existed in London.In his 1899 novel Le Testament d'un excentrique, Jules Verne uses the United States of America as a giant real-life Game of the Goose board, on which seven players race each other in pursuit of a $60,000,000 inheritance. The game was also the basis for a game/stunt show in Spain, El gran juego de la oca (The Big Goose G … [Click Below for Full Description]

García, Carlos.
Presso Cristoforo Tomasini, 1640. An expatriate living in Paris, Carlos García (ca. 1575 - ca. 1630) wrote on a variety of topics and in different genres ranging from a picaresque novel to essays on politics. The original Spanish title of the work offered here in Italian translation is La oposicion y conjuncion de los dos grandes luminares de la tierra, and was first published in Paris in 1617. This translation first appeared in 1637 and is from the pen of Clodio Vilopoggio. The subject of this work is the rivalry between Spain and France for political and religious supremacy in the Catholic realm of Europe, but the author also discusses national traits, as he sees them, such as manner of dressing, walking, eating, and talking.
