        Relacion Verdadera de todos los sucesos y encuentros que ha tenido la real armada de la Flota en la Carrera de las Indias, con los Holandeses, desde catorce de enero hasta tres de marzo de mil seisientos y cuarenta y uno. Viniendo por Generales don Geronimo de Sandoual, y don Juan de Vega Bacan

      First edition. Exceedingly rare account on the naval engagement occurred off the port of Havana in 1641 between the Dutch pirate fleet and the Spanish fleet commanded by Geronimo de Sandoval and Juan de Vega Bazan. "Having sortied from Havana to Cape Corrientes earlier this month to chase away any Dutch interlopers prowling off Cuba´s shoreline, the battle fleet of Adms. Geronimo Gomez de Sanfoval and Juan de Vega Bazan has circled around the southern coast to within sight... the next day, 17 Dutch vessels appear. They pause to form up into battle formation and then charge into the waiting Spaniards five hours later" (Wars of the Americas: A Chronology of Armed Conflict, David Marley), the imprint begins with a note on the resolution of the Dutch in attacking, and the faux information they had on the amount of Dutch vessels sailing in those waters. The narrator goes into detail about the courage and strength in battle of the Spanish, and ends with the losses suffered. Extremely rare, the only copy traceable on AE is the one offered by Maggs in 1927, VI, item 361. Only one copy in the United States, Brown University, the rest are microfilms. Palau, 258221. Medina, BHA, 1028.

        Cosmographie ou doctrine de la sphere. Avec un traitté de la geographie. Sedan, François Chayer, 1661. 8vo. Near contemporary half vellum.

      Cf. Barbier 9356; Houzeau & Lancaster 10920; KVK & WorldCat (3 copies of 1641 ed.); not in BN Paris; Zinner. Apparently the only surviving copy, not found recorded, of the second (and last) edition of a book devoted to astrolabes, globes, cosmography and geography by the French philosopher Claude Pithois (1587-1676). A two-page foreword addressed "a ceux qui le meritent" notes among other things that the book is useful for people compiling almanacs or writing horoscopes, but does not refer to the earlier edition. A four-page "prelude" in XII numbered points follows, mainly defining terms, then IV numbered treatises: "Traitté de la sphere en general" (on Ptolemaic astrolabes, the earth and the universe: the "sphere artificielle" and "sphere naturelle"), "Traitté de la region celeste" (on the sun, moon, planets and stars, including constellations), "Traitté de la region elementaire" (on the earth, subterranean regions, seas and air, associated with the four elements) and "Traitté des principes de la geographie" (with special emphasis on globes). It is a simple introduction to the subjects, explaining many different terms and concepts. Until now it was known only from the very rare first edition (1641), printed by Pierre Jannon at Sedan. The deliberate destruction of the books of the Protestant Academy at Sedan in 1681 no doubt contributed to the rarity of Sedan books of this period and this one was probably intended for students, who no doubt wore out most copies.With some minor marginal chips, tears and holes, not approaching the text, but otherwise in very good condition and almost entirely untrimmed. The binding is good, with only a few tiny wormholes in the spine. The apparently unique surviving copy of the second and last edition of a work on astrolabes and cosmography, also very rare in its first edition.

        Leycesters Common-wealth [bound with Leycesters Ghost, 1641] Conceived, spoken and published with most earnest protestation of all Dutifull good will and affection towards the Realm, for whose good onely, it is made common to many.

      n.p. 1641 - First edition. 4to. (189x135mm). pp. [viii], 182, [ii], 35. Full calf, with gilt double fillet to the borders of the upper and lower covers. Spine has five raised bands and six compartments, lavishly decorated in gilt. The second compartment has a red label with the title in gilt. Highly decorated dentelles and marbled endpapers. Some discolouration and slight cracking to the outer edges of the boards. Rubbing to the head and foot of the spine and to the edges but this is a very nice, near fine binding. The contents are fine with only minor foxing. There is an engraved portrait, by W. Marshall, of Robert Dudley, The Earl of Leicester tipped in on the verso of the blank page before the title page. The front pastedown has the armorial bookplate of Kennet of the Dene and there is a handwritten note by Lord Kennet tipped in on the first blank page together with the sale catalogue entry noted in pencil "Maggs 1958". "Leycesters commonwealth" is a political tract against Elizabeth I's government and in particular, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. More specifically, it was read as a Catholic attack on the increasing Protestantism of Elizabeth's advisors. It went through many stages and forms, both in manuscript and in print, and is most well known by the title "Leicester's commonwealth" which was the title given to it in 1641. This 1641 edition was the basis for much subsequent historical and biographical writing on Leicester. It was first printed in Antwerp in 1584 with the title "The copie of a leter, wryten by a master of arte of Cambridge, to his friend in London". It was formerly attributed to Robert Parsons (who always denied authorship) and is sometimes attributed to Thomas Morgan. The true identity of the author is so uncertain that we have ascribed it to Anon. "Leycesters commonwealth" was republished in 1641 and was versified as "Leycesters ghost" in that same year. Leycester's Ghost is often attributed to Thomas Rogers but also to to Simon Ford, William Cecil, Lord Burghley, and Robert Parsons. Again, Anon might be the safest attribution. ESTC. R9399; Wing, L968. Leycesters Ghost, ESTC. R9349; Wing, R1837A. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Harmoniae evangelicae, a praestantiss. theol. D.M. Chemnitio primum inchoatae [1641] + Harmoniae Euangelistarum Chemnitio-Lyserianae continvatio [1646] (2 volumes)

      Geneuae : Ex typographia Iacobi Stoer + Roterodami : Ex bibliopolio Arnold Leers, 1641 - 1646. Hardcover. Good. 2 volume set. Folios, 35 cm. Uniformly bound in full leather. Rebacked. Title vignettes in red and black. Biblical text in Greek and Latin. Collated: [12], 30, [42] pages, 1894 columns, [9], 372, [12] pages. + [8], 1223, [48] pages. Since the advent of the church, there were attempts to reconcile the four gospels into a chronological and ordered narrative. The 16th century saw a rise in the production in Gospel harmonies, as the burgeoning Protestant movement and its offshoots attempted to decipher the true nature of the Gospels. After Martin Luther, Martin Chemnitz and Johann Gerhard are often recognized as the greatest theologians of the Lutheran Church. This book is a valuable Lutheran interpretation of the Harmony of the first four books of the New Testament. Chemnitz published Chapters 1-51 in 1593, succeeded by Leyser in 1603-11 with Chapters 52-140. Gerhard finished the work in 1626-27 with Chapters 141-218. The substantial work provides the text of the Gospels in Greek and Latin with prolific commentary and exegesis. This is an oversized or heavy book, which requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. Harmoniae euangelicae, a præstantiss. theol. D.M. Chemnitio primum inchoatae. "In Harmoniam historiae euangelicae de Passione, Crucifixione, morte, sepultura, Resurrectione et Ascensione Christi Saluatoris nostri, ex quatuor Euangelistis contextam: commentarius conscriptus" has half-title.

        A B C.[Dresden and Augsburg or Nürnberg?], [Johann Christian Weigel?], engraved by Moritz Bodenehr, [1693?]. Oblong folio (unfolded 2-leaf sheets 37 x 29 cm). A series of 4 unnumbered engraved prints, with 6 images to a plate (each 52 x 52 mm), the first 23 showing an alphabet of roman capitals (A-Z without J, U or W), mostly with figures from classical Greek mythological, and the 24th showing a figure without a letter with what might be called the title: "A B C".

      Berlin Kat. 5291; Hollstein, IV, no. 141, items 51-54; not in Becker/Hofer, Practice of letters. A rare and finely engraved complete alphabet of roman capitals with figures mostly from Greek mythology, conceived and drawn by Samuel Bottschild (1641-1706) in Dresden, where he was painter to the court of Johann Georg IV, Elector of Saxony, and from 1699 inspector of the Electoral art collection. The series was engraved by Moritz Bodenehr (1665-1749) in Dresden. The letters do not directly copy any known model, but they come closer to those in Geofroy Tory's 1529 Champ fleury than to any other we have seen, with the straight strokes, the bracketing of the serifs and some curved strokes possibly executed with a ruler and compass, but the letters generally well-proportioned without a geometrical straightjacket. They owe little or nothing to Giovanni Cresci, whose alphabets of 1560 and 1570 influenced many later ones.In fine condition and with generous margins.

      - Alden & Landis 644/139; Asher 191; Knuttel 5119; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 62; Sabin 77475. Pamphlet warning of the dangers to the Dutch Republic and its people if they do not unify the East and West India Companies under a single charter. Though in Europe the Dutch allied themselves with Portugal against Spain in the Eighty Years' War, they seized a great deal of Portuguese territory in Brazil and elsewhere in the years 1641 to 1644 and rejected Portuguese demands for its return in June 1644. Portugal, in no position to reconquer its territories, agreed to a truce with the Dutch at Goa in November 1644. Even before the truce the Dutch had reduced their garrison at Recife and recalled the highly regarded and moderate governor-general Johan Maurits of Nassau. On his return to the Netherlands in May 1644 he warned of the dangers of reducing the forces and envisioned the unification of the East and West India Companies to make a stronger force that could seize Spain's colonies in Peru and Mexico. The present pamphlet argues that the unification of the companies would secure the Dutch colonies in Brazil, help them drive Spain out of Peru and Mexico, cut off the source of wealth that was feeding the Spanish war against the Republic in the Low Countries, and provide the Republic with lucrative new trade in the former Spanish colonies. The proposal for unification proved ill-fated, however, and the Dutch not only failed to conquer Peru and Mexico but even lost Brazil a decade later. Slightly browned, a small streak in red pencil on title-page, and some faint water stains. Overall in very good condition.

        The dovvnefall of temporizing poets, unlicenst printers, upstart booksellers, trotting mercuries, and bawling hawkers.

      [London]: Printed merrily, and may be read unhappily, betwixt Hawke and Bussard [but really, J. Barker, printer, Great Russell street, Covent Garden., for J. Sturt], 1641 [i.e., ca. 1815]. Small 4to (20 cm; 7.75") bound in a tall 8vo (24 cm; 9.5"). [1] f., 5, [1 (blank)] pp. The subtitle of this satire is: "Being a very pleasant dialogue between Light-foot the mercury, and Suck-bottle the hawker, Red-nose the poet being moderator between them: the corruptions of all which by their conference is plainly described."    Dagmar Freist in Governed By Opinion: Politics, Religion and the Dynamics of Communication in Stuart London characterizes this work as "the fullest account of this [1640s] satirical perception of the London booktrade [as lawless]."

        Africa nova Tabula

      Amsterdam 1641 - Questa carta dell’Africa, realizzata da Hendrik Hondius, è una variante della mappa realizzata da Jodocus Hondius Jr. nel 1619. In questa versione, con l’excudit della casa editrice di Janssonius, in basso a destra, mancano i bordi decorativi. La descrizione geografica ricalca quella delle mappe di Blaeu e di Speed. Questo esemplare proviene da un’edizione latina; la data nel cartiglio è abrasa. Incisione in rame, fine coloritura coeva, in buone condizioni. This map of Africa, realized by Hendrik Hondius, is a reissue of Jodocus Hondius' map, without the decorative borders, but with the excudit of Janssonius, on lower right. While the general geography for this map is taken from Willem Blaeu’s wall map of 1608 and his 1617 folio map, this example represents a considerable advance in the detail and accuracy of Africa from Hondius’ prior maps. Geographical improvements include a more rounded southern Cape, the naming of the Rio de Spiritu Santo and of the CuamaRiver, the insertion of Zimbaos and alteration in the shape of Madagascar. The Kingdom of Monomotapa fills the entire southern tip of Africa. However, the map is also filled with fictitious rivers and mountains and shows the origin of the Nile conforming to the Ptolemaic tradition of twin lakes located below the equator, as is typical of 17th Century cartography. This example comes from a Latin edition; the date on the cartouche can't be read. Copper engraving, fine contemporary colour, in good condition. O. I. Norwich, "Norwich's Maps of Africa", map 34; R. L. Betz "The Mapping of Africa " (2007), map 58; Schilder, Monumenta, volume 6, 13. Dimensioni 500 380mm

        Systema cosmicum: in quo dialogis IV. de duobus maximis mundi systematibus, Ptolemaico & Copernicano, rationibus utrinque propositis indefinite Differitur

      [Lyon]: Ioan Antonii Huguetan, 1641 Illustrated with an engraved title page, engraved portrait of Galileo, and numerous in-text woodcuts. Second Latin edition. Bound in early speckled brown sheep and tan speckled boards, with four raised bands to the spine, lettered in gilt, all edges speckled red. Very good, rebacked preserving the original spine, spine rubbed, small repair to the margin of the verso of leaf Z3, small wormhole through the first 36 pages, some scattered red underlining, offsetting to the pastedowns, some light spotting to the page edges, former owner's 18th century inscription to the front endpaper, otherwise very clean pages. A very clean and sturdy copy, published during the author's lifetime. Systema cosmicum (Cosmic System) is the Latin translation of Galileo's comparative analysis of the Copernican and Ptolemaic theories of the solar system in which he uses his incorrect understanding of the ocean tides to support Copernicus' argument for a heliocentric system. This text was first published in Italian in 1632 under the title Dialogo sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo (Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems); although Latin was then the primary language for scholarly writings, Galileo wrote in Italian so that his book could be read by a wide audience that extended beyond the realm of academia. Because of the Catholic Church's mandate that the Copernican system could only be discussed as theory, Galileo couched his argument in the form of a dialogue between two philosophers and a layman. Still, the publication of Systema Cosmicum was a major factor in the Roman Inquisition's trial of Galileo and its subsequent order for the house arrest that he would be confined to for the remainder of his life. System Cosmicum was not removed from the Vatican's list of banned books until nearly 200 years after its initial publication. PMM 261.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

      Afbeeldinge van zeker concept tot Bedykinge van de Haarlemmer, Leydse en andere byleggende MeerenKopergravure naar het ontwerp van Jacob Bartelsz Veeris gegraveerd door Daniel van Breen. De kaart verscheen eerst in 1641 bij Nicolaes Visscher, dit exemplaar werd ca. 1750 uitgegeven door zijn opvolger Pieter Schenk Jr. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 47,5 x 71 cm.Hoewel in de 17de eeuw op grote schaal meren in Noord-Holland werden ingepolderd, bleef het project om het steeds verder afkalvende Haarlemmermeer droog te leggen voorlopig liggen. Rivaliteit tussen Haarlem en Leiden, dat niet graag de inkomsten uit de visrechten van de enorme binnenzee wilde verliezen, maakte dat de plannen niet ten uitvoer werden gebracht. Nadat in 1836 een storm het water opjoeg tot Amsterdam en Leiden werd besloten de Haarlemmermeer toch droog te malen. Dat gebeurde uiteindelijk tussen 1848 en 1852.Prijs: ? 1.750,- (excl. lijst).

        Diversi animali. The complete suite of 24 etchings of mostly mammals drawn from menageries in Paris and Florence.

      No date or place stated, but published with Pierre Mariette in Paris, 1641.. The complete animal series of 24 etchings (including the title), reversibly mounted under passepartout in 4 rows of 6 etchings. Each measuring app. 8.2 x 10.4 cm. A very few marginal and inobtrusive wears or restorations, but a very fine set. De Vesme 690-713. Second state (of three), before the erasion of the publisherÂ’s name. – The animals of this series were mostly engraved after individuals kept in the menageries of the Medicis in Florence, Italy and those of the King of France in Paris, to both of which della Bella had access during his career. While menageries at his time still were mixtures of hunting compounds for the nobility and what one could call an early form of zoological gardens, it contained illustrations of exotic animals and local species, including wild and domesticated species, game as well as companion animals. All, though, are mammals with the sole exception of a pair of eagles. Until just recently the elephant i this series had been considered to be a portrait of the famous individual ‘HanskenÂ’, an Indian elephant from Ceylon, born in 1630 and brought to Europe in 1633. Hansken toured Central Europe for almost two decades and became the most popular individual elephant of all times (his name being a diminutive version of the dutch name ‘HansÂ’). HanskenÂ’s skeleton was conserved and is today part of the exhibition of the Museum La Specola in Florence. However, recent stduies (M. Roscam Abbing, 2016) argue, that the elephant in della BellaÂ’s suite most likely is that one which occured in France in the year 1626, belonging to a Dutch privatier named Sevender and which according to Oettermann (1982) appears to have travelled Europe for several years. It became especially known for as having served as a model for Gian Lorenzo BerniniÂ’s famous obelisk in Rome.

Sixthly to provide that the Lord's day may be strictly . Sanctified & not profaned with drunkenness, May-games, Wakes, Plays, Dancing, Carding, Dicing or any other such like Pastimes, with unnecessary Labouring or travelling therein. Seventhly, seeing Saints' holidays, are as strictly (if not more) pressed to be observed, than the Lord's day, and those that work therein are more soundly punished than those that Profane the Sabbath", and that such days are "the occasion of Superstition, and many other great Disasters; Therefore we desire that they may be taken away", while they, as petitioners for the "directions" of "this honourable Assembly", continue "to be daily Orators to the Throne of Grace". 2 sides folio, short title on side 2 dated January 1640, modern reckoning (Transcription of 55797) To the honourable the Knights Citizens & Burgesses now assembled in Parliament The humble Petition of divers the Inhabitants of the County Palatine of Chester, who have subscribed their Names to a Schedule herewith sent in the behalf of themselves and many more.

      1641 - shewing that "whereas divers papers usurping the names of our county [as] petitioner[s], have been obtruded upon this honourable house", the Commons of the Long Parliament, "to the great scandal of religion, & prejudice of our country, some whereof we have found to be groundless invectives, against Episcopy, barely founded upon indiscretion & ignorance" the petitioners, "aiming chiefly at the glory of God, & salvation of our souls, humbly crave leave, to vindicate our county, from such aspersions", stating that "the office & calling of Bishops, a name we shall here rather, pray for than dispute . founded in the first Christian churches, confirmed in the blood of Martyrs, & maintained in the purest time of the gospel, we apprehend to be of greater weight than to be libelled, & scandaled, by such factious persons, as have either ignorance, or prejudice, for their best counsellors"; and "praying that personal crimes may not be imputed to religious orders, nor that errors in private governors, may be a breach in public government". But "when the person of any Bishop by his life or doctrine, hath dishonoured God . or defamed his calling, may his fault be punished with such severity, as in your justice, and wisdom, shall be thought fit". They suggest that "were the Antipetitioners throughly examined, they would be found partial prejudicate men, rash inconsiderate men, unable & unqualified men, men of thin and cheap abilities, such as know no government, or scorn all", and "ready to add new firebrands to set the whole church of God in combustion".

      Afbeeldinge van zeker concept tot Bedykinge van de Haarlemmer, Leydse en andere byleggende MeerenKopergravure naar het ontwerp van Jacob Bartelsz Veeris gegraveerd door Daniel van Breen. De kaart verscheen eerst in 1641 bij Nicolaes Visscher, dit exemplaar werd ca. 1750 uitgegeven door zijn opvolger Pieter Schenk Jr. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 47,5 x 71 cm.Hoewel in de 17de eeuw op grote schaal meren in Noord-Holland werden ingepolderd, bleef het project om het steeds verder afkalvende Haarlemmermeer droog te leggen voorlopig liggen. Rivaliteit tussen Haarlem en Leiden, dat niet graag de inkomsten uit de visrechten van de enorme binnenzee wilde verliezen, maakte dat de plannen niet ten uitvoer werden gebracht. Nadat in 1836 een storm het water opjoeg tot Amsterdam en Leiden werd besloten de Haarlemmermeer toch droog te malen. Dat gebeurde uiteindelijk tussen 1848 en 1852.Prijs: ? 1.750,- (excl. lijst).

      Lugduni: Sumptibus Ioann. Antonij Huguetan., 1641. Second Latin edition of Galileo's masterwork on the Copernican system. With the famous frontispiece illustrating the three scientists in the midst of their dialogue, engraved title-page, full-page pictorial engraving of Galileo, a profusion of engraved scientific diagrams and head and tail pieces throughout. 4to, bound in antique, near contemporary polished calf, the covers with double gilt fillet ruled borders, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled, gilt lettering in one compartment, gilt tooling at the head and tail. (*4), 377, colophon, [20 pp. index], errata pp. A very handsome contemporaneously bound copy of this highly important work in the history of science, minor edge repair to the frontis, occasional very slight evidence of staining, the binding with some very expert and sympathetic refurbishment. GALILEO'S EXPOSITION AND PROOF OF THE COPERNICAN SYSTEM, which led to his trial before the Inquisition and sentence to perpetual house arrest. The book, as is well known, was placed on the Vatican’s list of outlawed books. It was not published again legally in Italy until approximately a century after the original printing. The title was not removed from the "Index librorum prohibitorum" until 1823. In 1610 Galileo published his SIDEREUS NUNCIUS, in which he described the construction of his telescope and his observations using the new instrument. His discoveries did not prove that Copernicus's heliocentric theory was correct, but they did show that geocentric philosophy of Aristotle and the geocentric system proposed by Ptolemy were incorrect, providing strong evidence for the heliocentric theory--an implausible theory which had largely been ignored for sixty years after Copernicus's death. His new support for the Copernican system reopened the controversy, and in 1615 he was officially silenced as regards the truth of astronomy. "The DIALOGO was designed both as an appeal to the great public and as an escape from silence. In the form of an open discussion between three friends--intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic--it is a masterly polemic for the new science. It displays all the great discoveries in the heavens which the ancients had ignored; it inveighs against the sterility, wilfulness, and ignorance of those who defend their systems; it revels in the simplicity of Copernican thought and, above all, it teaches that the movement of the earth makes sense in philosophy, that is, in physics. Astronomy and the science of motion, rightly understood, says Galileo, are hand in glove. There is no need to fear that the earth's rotation will cause it to fly to pieces" (PMM). Galileo pioneered the study of motion and its mathematical analysis, a field which was taken up by Decartes and Huygens and culminated in the "massive achievements of Newton in dynamics and gravitational astronomy" (PMM).

        De igne subterraneo physica prolusio.

      Firenze, Massa & Landi, 1641. ____ Première édition de cette dissertation sur la constitution de la terre et de son feux souterrain. L'auteur traite des volcans, du mouvement de la Terre, des cavernes, des rivières souterraines, des fontaines, des fossiles, des métaux... Galilée possédait cet ouvrage et recommandait sa lecture à plusieurs de ses correspondants. Giovanni Nardi (1585-1654) était médecin à Florence. Beau titre gravé, plié dans sa marge inférieure, avec deux cachets de bibliothèque de Capucins, le faux-titre manque. Bel exemplaire. Ferguson II, 126. *-------* First edition. "During the final year of his life, Galileo recommended to his correspondents to read Giovanni Nardi's De igne subterraneo (1641), a book he regarded as deserving scrutiny and discussion. (...) Galileo was well aware that a new theory of the earth as part of a new sublunary physics was a necessary consequence of accepting the Copernican cosmology and that such theory should be based on a corpuscular conception of matter radically different from the elemental theory of Aristotle." (Luca Ciancio). This is a dissertation on the nature of the Earth and its underground fire.

Leicester's Commonwealth (originally titled The Copie of a Leter wryten by a Master of Arts of Cambrige) (1584) is a scurrilous tract that circulated in Elizabethan England and which attacked Queen Elizabeth I's favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. The work functioned as Roman Catholic propaganda against the political and religious policy of Elizabeth I's regime, in particular the Puritan sympathies fostered by Leicester. In doing so it portrayed Leicester as an amoral opportunist of "almost satanic malevolence", and circulated lurid stories of his scandalous deeds and his dangerous plots. The text is presented as "a letter written by a Master of Art of Cambridge to his friend in London, concerning some talk passed of late between two worshipful and grave men about the present state and some proceedings of the Earl of Leicester and his friends in England." The title "Leicester's Commonwealth" was first used in the 1641 edition. The book highly influenced Leicester's historical reputation in the ensuing centuries (Wikipedia).
