Hendrick HONDIUS (Amsterdam 1597 - 1651)
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. The complete geographic description of Africa is quite common in the XVII century and recalls those by Speed and Blaeu. This example comes from a Latin edition; the date on the cartouche can't be read. Copper engraving, fine contemporary colour, in good condition. Amsterdam Amsterdam O. I.

Polycarp Leyser; Johann Gerhard; Martin Chemnitz; Polykarp Leyser
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 pr??¼stantiss. 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.

(PATENTS).
Type ornament device on title & a type ornament headpiece at beginning of text. 15 pp. Small 4to, polished calf (head of spine a bit chipped), signed "F. Bedford," triple gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, a.e.g. "London, Printed in the yeare 1641." First edition of this very rare anonymous satire in verse, which criticizes monopolies and patents placed on goods such as coals, soap, starch, leather, gold wire, wine, salt, tobacco and butter. By the reign of James I, patents had become so numerous and unfairly granted that they were considered oppressive and unjust to various classes, especially tradesmen and manufacturers. King James was forced to revoke all existing monopolies (except for "novel inventions") and declare that they were only to be used for "projects of new invention." This "statute of monopolies," enacted in 1624, became the foundation for all later developments in patent law in England and elsewhere. It was a fundamental landmark in the transition of Britain's economy from the feudal to the capitalist. However, James I's successor, Charles I continued to abuse the patents system and it was only during the English Restoration that this system of abuse was curtailed. The present work, written during Charles I's reign, bitterly describes the injustices within certain trades and industries. A fine copy preserving the deckle on all lower edges. Huth bookplate (sale Sotheby's 17 July 1917, lot 5630) and the armorial bookplate of Lord Fairfax of Cameron. .

FOXE, JOHN
London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1641. Eighth Edition n. This is a particularly well-preserved copy of the substantially expanded eighth English edition of Foxe's famous horrific account of the sufferings of Protestants for their faith, commonly called his "Book of Martyrs." A compendium of supererogatory agony and terror, the work met with such popularity that its second edition of 1570 was ordered to be chained in all cathedral churches for the use of the congregation. Kunitz observes that for more than a century "it was practically required reading in every English-speaking Puritan household, often the only book owned except the Bible. Probably no single book has caused so many neuroses as has this one." Kunitz says that Foxe (1516-87) "was a fanatical Protestant, wrote with feverish energy, was completely credulous, and reveled in horror. No detail is too small or too dreadful to be described minutely, and no invective too violent to be applied to the Roman Catholics." While some lesser-known martyrs are represented with a generic woodcut of a man being burned at the stake, illustrations of particularly notable executions are rendered in gruesome detail, like that of a pregnant female martyr whose unborn child bursts out of her womb, only to be returned to the flames to perish with his mother. "Acts and Monuments" begins with the earliest Christian martyrs and continues to the Reformation. In subsequent editions during his lifetime, Foxe continued to expand and enhance his account with new stories of Christian (i.e., Protestant) suffering, doubling the siz … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).

Copies of the text circulated widely in manuscript. Appreciating its value, the Long Parliament ordered it to be printed. Based on a wide range of historical sources, some from the time of the Saxon kings, it asserts the illegality of extra-parliamentary taxation. It is an important early statement of the principal that taxation without representation is illegal an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Galilei, Galileo
Lyons: Jean-Antoine Huguetan the elder, 1641.Lyons: Jean-Antoine Huguetan the elder, 1641 Scarce second Latin edition of Galileo's revolutionary "Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems," published one year before Galileo's death. Any of Galileo's publications appearing during his lifetime have a special significance. Two important appendices by Kepler and Foscarini on the conflict between science and the bible were added for the Latin edition. Foscarini's Lettera was condemned by the Inquisition, the printer imprisoned, and all known copies confiscated and burned in 1616. It was the first Italian work to openly advocate the Copernican theory. A milestone of of modern science. The Dialogo presents the summation of Galileo's astronomical thought, and his controversial support of the Copernican view of the solar system based on observed fact instead of scripture. A turning point in the history of human intelligence, a pivot that continues to this day. Quarto, textblock measures 23 cm by 18 cm, (very large, possibly untrimmed example, rare thus). Later 17th century limp vellum with manuscript title to spine. [16], 377, [23] pages. Collated and COMPLETE. Extra engraved title page. full page engraved portrait of Galileo. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. Galileo's historic formulation of the scientific method owes much to his background in music. His father, a tuner of musical instruments, taught Galileo that the key to tuning an instrument was listening to the sounds made by the instrument, not looking in a book about music. Galileo applied the same principl … [Click Below for Full Description]

It is printed in double-column format on high quality paper, in mostly gothic type (i.e., "black letter") with some roman and italic.
