        Mémoires sur les actions les plus éclatantes et sur les droits les plus prestigieux des Comtes et Ducs, Chefs de la Royale Maison de Savoie (Manuscrit)

      Trois volumes in - folio sur cinq, comprenant au Tome I : de Berold de Saxe, premier Comte de Savoie à Amédée Septième. 214 pages avec une préface de l'auteur. Tome IV : Charles Emmanuel Premier. 190 pages. Tomes V : de Victor Amédé Premier à Charles Emmanuel Second. 139 pages. Histoire finissant en 1642 et se terminant par « Fin des mémoires de Savoie composées par le C.R. ». Cet ensemble est une copie tout début XVIIIè du manuscrit jamais publié du Chanoine Rambert de la Sainte Chapelle de Chambéry, mort en 1728. On fait référence à cet ouvrage dans « Manno » biblio tome 1, « Foras » Tome 5, pages 57 à 60, « Grillet » Tome 2, page 143, « S.S.H.A » Tome 28, pages XXXIII à XXXVII. Deux exemplaires complets existent à la bibliothèque Royale de Turin, et un exemplaire chambérien est passé dans les mains de Mr Mugnier qui le considère, quoique criticable, d'une agréable écriture. En effet on y trouve Berold de Saxe, totalement inventé afin de créer une filiation honorable à la famille de Savoie, mais aussi de multiples anecdotes forts curieuses, jamais justifiées dans leur provenance. Le Chanoine Rambert fut Evèque d'Aoste en 1727 juste avant sa mort lors de son voyage à Chambéry en 1728. Il fait partie de la famille chargé de la Baronnie de Chatillon et des Seigneurs de Chautagne. Les 3 volumes manuscrits sont reliés dans un carton d'époque avec dos devenu muet avec les marges frottés. Le tome IV a des traces d'humidité et le tome V une trace de vers. Aucun manque de texte, bien lisible d'une belle écriture large. Document exceptionnellement rare malgré le manque des tomes II et III.

        Monstrorum Historia cum paralipomenis historiae omnium animalium....

      Bologna, Typis N. Tebaldini, 1642. 2 parts bound in one. Folio (348 x 240mm). pp. (6), 747, (28); pp. 159, (1), (6). With engraved title and 477 woodcuts, many full-page. Later full calf, spine with red gilt lettered label. First edition. An encyclopaedic study of monsters and monstrosities, the first treatise on teratology (although published more than 70 years after it was written) and the greatest illustrated work on the subject of the seventeenth century. The 'monsters' illustrated and described include human, animal, and botanical deformities, as well as celestial prodigies (comets, aurorae, etc.). There is a section on fetal development and deformity and a series of inter-uterine illustrations of difficult presentations. There is also a section on monsters of mythology and antiquity, including a series of illustrations of Egyptian objects depicting various animal-headed deities. The second part contains an appendix, the Paralipomena, by Bartolomei Ambrosini, Aldrovandi's successor as director of the Bologna botanic gardens.//The present work is the final volume of Aldrovandi's complete Opera, published in 13 volumes. A massive encyclopaedia of the natural world based upon the specimens and drawings of natural history objects in Aldrovandi's museum in Bologna, the first true natural history museum. This is the largest assembly of natural history illustrations to be published before the eighteenth century. Many of the illustrations were the work of the outstanding artist Jacopo Ligozzi, and the originals are still to be found in Bologna, and have recently been made available online./Aldrovandi (1522-1605), the great Bolognan naturalist, was inspired to study natural history by meeting Guillaume Rondelet in Rome, where Aldrovandi was obliged to go to defend himself against charges of heresy. 'Rondelet was then gathering material for his work on fishes. Aldrovandi, who accompanied the French physician to fish markets in order to study the various species, finally decided to study natural history, and began collecting specimens for his own museum. He was the creator and first director of the botanic gardens of the University of Bologna, in which was placed his library and natural history museum, one of the earliest of its kind. He is credited with having 'formed one of the first herbaria as we know them today. His was an outstanding zoological and botanical intelligence, and it was unfortunate that he died before much of his work was published' (Hunt catalogue). Some occasional very light dampstaining at the lower right corner.//Nissen ZBI, 74.

        Breves arabicae lingua institutiones.

      Rome, Propaganda Fide, Joseph David Luna, 1642.. Folio. [12], 349, [1], [2 blank] pp. With the Propaganda Fide's woodcut rectangular Jesus and Apostles device on the title-page, their round Jesus and Apostles device above the colophon, 1 woodcut tailpiece, 2 woodcut decorated initials (2 series), and numerous decorations built up from cast arabesque fleurons. Set in roman, italic and Arabic type with incidental Hebrew. Contemporary sheepskin parchment, sewn on 5 cords (3 secured to the boards, 2 cut flush with the bookblock), headbands worked in pink and white, edges sprinkled pink and blue, manuscript spine title in 2nd of 6 compartments.. First and only edition of Guadagnoli's Latin grammar of the Arabic language, in a luxurious folio format. In 1632 the Propaganda Fide had begun work on an Arabic Bible that was not to be completed until 1671. Guadagnoli (1596-1656) was one of the correctors for the Bible and in the present grammar, set in the same type, he notes that they have taken special care with their Arabic setting and with the metre to suit them to the desires of native Arabic speakers, though the fact that the text was in Latin and the fact that it must have been an expensive book would have limited the audience: it is not the sort of book that missionaries would give away to common people. Erpenius's 1613 grammar, revised and reprinted several times, was aimed primarily at European scholars. The main text opens with a table of the letters, showing (from left to right!) the stand-alone, initial, medial and final forms, along with the name of each letter and its pronunciation. This gives an overview of the new Arabic Bible type. The texts used as examples include the first printing of two poems taken from manuscripts in the oriental library collected by Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) in Rome: the "Carmen Chazregiacum" and the "Carmen de invocationibus'. The Arabic type may have been cut by the Propaganda Fide's in-house punchcutters for their Arabic folio Bible, whose Pentateuch was printed from 1632 to 1635 but distributed only in proof copies until the complete Bible was published in 1671. Occasional lines appear in their other books from 1636, but the present book uses it for the main Arabic text. It was to become the staple of their Arabic printing. The book also gives a nice synopsis of the Propaganda Fide's large Hebrew type (6 mm mem-height). - With early manuscript shelf-marks in ink at the foot (R III 20) and on the back (R III 8) of the title-page. Most of the sheets have browned patches or browned spots, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. Binding very good, with only minor wear and a couple small abrasions. An important Arabic grammar intended for native speakers. - Amaduzzi, p. 11; Schnurrer 72; Smitskamp, Philiologia orientalis 220.

        Respuesta al Manifiesto del Reyno de Portugal.

      Antwerp, Officina Plantiniana de Balthasar Moreto, 1642. - Large woodcut publisher's device on title. Elegant woodcut initials, some rather large. Portions of text in CivilitÈ type. (8 ll.), 198 pp., (1 l.), 1 folding letterpress genealogical chart. 4? (23.5 x 18 cm.), contemporary vellum (wormed, front inner hinge split), short author-title written vertically in dark ink manuscript on spine. Light browning; some light foxing and small stains. Worming, mostly in the upper blank margins, touching an occasional letter of the headline. Tear in T1 (9 cm.), without loss. Overall in near-good condition. Early ink signature (scored) on title page. Early ink manuscript note on front pastedown endleaf. Old ink manuscript (shelfmark?) "S.g.22" on rear pastedown endleaf. ---- FIRST EDITION of this work arguing that Philip II of Spain (son of the Emperor Charles V and his wife the Infanta Isabel of Portugal) and his heirs are the legitimate kings of Portugal: "ReÁucitan oy amotinados Portugueses un cadauer, que nunca viviÛ; un derecho, que nunca fuÈ; una causa, que nunca pudo subistir" (f. **1v). Pages 9-36 are the first Spanish translation of a work by Portuguese patriot Antonio Pais Viegas, @Manifesto do Reino de Portugal, 1641, which had been widely circulated. Most of the remainder of this volume (pp. 37-156) is Caramuel Lobkowitz's response to Pais Viegas. He includes 30 pages of genealogical arguments, among which are a discussion of the marriage (or not) of the unfortunate D. Ines de Castro (d. 1355) and D. Pedro I of Portugal (pp. 85-107). The final section (pp. 158-198) is Caramuel Lobkowitz's reply to 9 other works that supported D. Jo?o's claims. Another edition of the @Respuesta was published at Santangel de la Fratta, 1665. A Latin translation by Leandro van der Bandt appeared in Louvain, 1642: @Joannes Bargantinus Lusitaniae illegitimus rex demonstratus.The @Respuesta is a rare and previously unrecorded use of CivilitÈ type, not listed in the appendix to Carter & Vervliet, @CivilitÈ Types.The work is dedicated to the first Conde de Assumar, Francisco de Melo, who was granted the title by Philip III in 1630. When the Conde remained loyal to the Habsburgs after D. Jo?o IV ascended the Portuguese throne in 1640, his title was revoked by the Portuguese monarch, but continued to be recognized in Spain.Juan Caramuel Lobkowitz (Madrid, 1606-Vigevano, Lombardy, 1682) had a brilliant career as a clergyman and was the author of over 200 works. After studying mathematics and Asian languages (especially Chinese), he entered the Cistercian order at La Espina (Palencia). While attached to the monastery of Dunes in Flanders, his sermons attracted the attention of the Infante Ferdinand, governor of the Low Countries. In 1638, the University of Louvain bestowed an honorary Doctor of Theology degree upon him. Caramuel Lobkowitz notes in the dedication (f. *2v) that he had penned @Philippus Prudens Caroli V. Imp. filius Lusitaniae Algarbiae, Indiae, Brasiliae legitimus rex demonstratus, Antwerp, 1639, to defend the Habsburg right to the throne. That work provoked Antonio Pais Viegas to publish the @Manifesto do Reino de Portugal, which in turn provoked the present work. Judging from the @aprobaciÛn on f. **4v, when this work appeared, its author was titular abbot of Melrose (in Scotland).Caramuel Lobkowitz subsequently served as envoy from the king of Spain to the court of Emperor Ferdinand III, abbot-superior of the Benedictines in Vienna, grand-vicar to the archbishop of Prague, bishop of Konigratz, archbishop of Otranto, and bishop of Vigevano. His published works range from grammar, poetry, and canon law to mathematics (he focused on combinatorics and probability), logic, astronomy, and asceticism. Alphonsus Liguori (later sanctified) condemned Caramuel Lobkowitz as "Prince of the Laxists."---- Palau 43539. Peeters-Fontainas 185. Almirante 115. @Bulletin du bibliophile belge III, p. 48.

        The acts and monuments of the church before Christ incarnate

      London: Miles Flesher & Robert Young Folio (27.7 cm, 10.9"). [4], 307, [1 (blank)], 313–552 pp.. 1642 First edition: Doctrinal discussion by Richard Montagu (or Mountague), Bishop of Norwich. A controversial theologian, Montagu sought to moderate between the extremes of Catholicism and Calvinism, with his stated goal being to support the Anglican Church by standing "in the gapp against Puritanisme and Popery" (Correspondence of John Cosin, 1.21). Allibone, however, joins many of the bishop's contemporaries in feeling that "There is no doubt as to the place where Bishop Montagu desired to go and to carry with him the king and the Church of England, — to the bosom of the Church of Rome." In the present work Montagu examines Jewish doctrine and practices before the birth of Jesus, and their implications for Christianity; in doing so he argues strongly against Casaubon, Scaliger, and other Protestant scholars, while defending the Catholic Baronius and his Annales Ecclesiastici. The dedication, written in Latin and Greek, is addressed to Jesus Christ. Contemporary mottled calf, shellacked, covers framed and panelled in blind double fillets with blind-tooled corner fleurons, simply rebacked (without labels) with complementary mottled calf; board edges with gilt roll. Original leather rubbed, shellac showing small cracks, edge gilt mostly lost; title-page with small early inked addition to author's name and with inked numeral in lower margin. One early inked marginal annotation, one early inked doodle in lower margin. First and last few leaves with margins browned; light age-toning throughout; occasional foxing and spots of staining.

      Ferroni, Bologna 1642 - In 16o, pp. (48) + 478 + (49) di indice + (1). Firma all'occhietto. Legatura in p. pg. coeva. Seconda edizione rarissima (ed. orig., Bologna, Tebaldini, 1640), di quest'opera di dottrina politica di Padre Vincenzo Sgualdi, benedettino originario di Piacenza,Âche, parlando di una repubblica immaginaria come Campanella nella Citta' del sole o Zuccoli nella Repubblica d'Evandria, ma allo stesso tempo recuperando l'interpretazione aristocratica della lezione dell'Utopia di Moro,Âsosteneva la necessita' di temperare la ragion di stato con l'insegnamento delle scritture per renderla davvero utile all'umanita'. Contro la politica atea ed empia dei tiranni, l'A. esortava a riscoprire la politica bene ordinata che insegna al buon principe come proteggere ed educare i suoi sudditi. L'opera e' dedicata al principe di Venezia e alla citta' fa riferimento Sgualdi quando scrive che, per popolare Venezia, i primi fondatori scelsero tutte persone 'nobili et ingenue' al fine di non perdere l'omogeneita' degli abitanti.

      à Paris: Chez Sebastien Cramoisy, 1642. Fine. Chez Sebastien Cramoisy, à Paris 1642, 2 ouvrages en un Vol. in Folio (22x35,5cm), 409pp. ; 441pp. (1), relié. - Third and best edition, the most complete, containing edition of the Compendium of illustrious houses of the Diocese of Amiens with its own title page with the date of 1642 Both books were published in less complete versions, respectively in 1621 and 1630 The second book is the location after each name weapons that have not been printed but are described in the margin; rare examples have illustrated these hand colored weapons. Major brand of printer on the two title pages. First title page in red and black. Half-title between each part of the first livre.Demi Sheepskin early twentieth marbled pastiche of antique binding. Spine ribbed highlighted nets cold. Part of title een red calf. Friction caps, bits and corners. The general half-title has been doubled and restored in low margin by a strip of paper ancienne.Adrian Morlière, canon of the cathedral of Amiens gathered throughout his life an awful lot of material on the history of his city . The book proceeds in the form of articles and does not use the classic but summary of the annal form, but the autograph dedication of the authors have a time evolution, Roman to modern times. We distinguish a catalog of the bishops of Amiens, the Counts and Governors or Lieutenant of the city. The Treaty on the Houses of Picardie contain valuable information. In addition to the historical, the author added to the end of each part of many poems of his own. Although the focus is mainly put more on the history of the city, there are many sections on churches, the ramparts and the description of the city. "Although the 'book The Morlière is poorly written, but it is useful & necessary, and even rare" notes Lenglet-Dufresnoy. At today's reader, the book will mainly appear messy in its first part, but full lessons on the city. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Troisième et meilleure édition, la plus complète, contenant l'édition du Recueil des illustres maisons du Diocèse d'Amiens avec sa propre page de titre à la date de 1642. Les deux ouvrages avaient paru dans des versions moins complètes, respectivement en 1621 et 1630. Le second livre porte l'emplacement après chaque nom de famille des armes qui n'ont pas été imprimées mais sont décrites dans la marge ; de rares exemplaires possèdent ces armes illustrées à la main en couleurs. Grande marque de l'imprimeur sur les 2 pages de titre. Première page de titre en rouge et noir. Faux-titre entre chaque partie du premier livre. Reliure en demi basane début XXe marbré, pastiche d'une reliure d'époque. Dos à nerfs soulignés de filets à froid. Pièce de titre een veau rouge. Frottements coiffes, mors et coins. Le faux-titre général a été doublé et restauré en marge basse par une bande de papier ancienne. Adrian de la Morlière, chanoine de la cathédrale d'Amiens a rassemblé durant toute sa vie un nombre incroyable de matériaux sur l'histoire de sa ville. L'ouvrage procède sous forme d'articles et n'use pas de la forme classique mais sommaire de l'annale, mais les articles ont une évolution chronologiques, des Romains jusqu'à l'époque contemporaine. On y distingue un catalogue des évêques d'Amiens, des Comtes et des gouverneurs ou lieutenants de la ville. Le traité sur les Maisons de Picardie renferment de précieux renseignements. Outre les éléments historiques, l'auteur a ajouté à la fin de chaque partie de nombreuses poésies de son cru. Bien que l'accent soit plus essentiellement mis sur l'histoire de la ville, on y trouve maints paragraphes sur les églises, les remparts et la description de la ville. "Quoique l"ouvrage de La Morlière soit mal écrit, il est cependant utile & nécessaire, & même assez rare" note Lenglet-Dufresnoy. Au lecteur d'aujourd'hui, l'ouvrage apparaîtra surtout désordonné dans sa première partie, mais plein d'enseignements sur la ville.

        Le Secret d'architecture découvrant fidèlement les traits géométriques, couppes, et dérobemens nécessaires dans les bastiments

      La Flèche, George Griveau 1642 - folio, [8], 228 p., with 112 full-page woodcut illustrations (misnumbered 113: since the plates are in the collation we can be certain there never was a plate 29), of which 12 are folding (one with a clean tear), some slight browning of the paper and a few light stains, but good copy in contemporary limp vellum Fowler 160; Millard I, 82; SKB 2538. Only edition, and an interesting provincial imprint, from La Flèche in the Loire region. Jousse (1607- 1692) also wrote treatises on locks and on carpentry, but here he tackles a more difficult technical subject, 'stereotomy', or the application of geometry to stone-cutting. Some of the illustrations are similar to the drawings Jousse did for the French edition of Pélerin’s book on perspective. Philibert de l’Orme had touched briefly on stone-cutting, and in the year after Jousse there appeared Francois Derand's L'Architecture des voûtes, a more theoretical book which became the standard text for architects, hence better preserved. As the only really thorough practical handbook available for working masons Jousse's book was read to pieces, and is very rare today. Thus Derand's book has turned up at auction a dozen times in the last 12 years, while we find just 2 imperfect copies of Jousse's book in the last 25 years, including the Macclesfield copy, which (surprisingly) lacked all twelve folding plates. Incidentally this copy has the stock code of E.P.Goldschmidt, who listed it in 1984 at a then ambitious $9500: 'the first copy we have ever seen'. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Hundreds of local houses, castles, churches, and public squares situated in bustling cities like Zurich and hilly landscapes like Stein am Rhein are shown in the town views, maps, and sweeping panoramas filling these fine copies of Merian's Switzerland and Alsace, with the complete set of engravings in each. The first volume represents the first published book in Merian's grand topographical project; it deals with the romantic and picturesque topography of his native country, Switzerland. The main interest of Merian's work on the towns and topography of Europe has always been the engraved plates, nearly all of them executed on a high artistic level, many are double-page and/or folding, and include engraved town plans and engraved views of the architecture of buildings, castles and residences, often with the accompanying landscape design. The first work opens with Merian's richly engraved allegorical title, with two Muses in clasped hands under the inscription 'Concordiae et pacis autor ichoua' and over Merian's stork standing on one leg printer's device. The center bears the coats-of-arms on shields of the different Swiss cantons, below which are the protecting Swiss knight and a Flora figure with cornucopias of wheat, cheese and bread. There are two very fine detailed engraved maps, one of Germany and one of Switzerland. The 76 copper-engraved views were designed and cut by a number of artists, Merian being responsible for the greatest number. Among some of the more spectacular views are those of: Zürich, Zug, Berne, Basle, Baden, and Geneva. The second Merian title covers the Alsace region. This work also contains two large folding maps and 52 engraved plans and views by Merian and others. Some of the standout views include Colmar, Strassburg, Rheinfelden, Mömpelgard/Montbéliard, and Breisach. Matthaeus Merian (1593-1650) took over the printing shop of his father-in-law Johann Theodor de Bry in Frankfurt. With the assistance of Martin Zeiler (1589 - 1661), a German geographer, and his son, Matthäus Merian (1621 - 1687), he published the famous 21 volume work known generally as Topographia Germanicae. This is an exceptionally fine copy of two of the most sought-after volumes from Merian's magnum opus. Schuchhard 62 and 26 A. Wüthrich 1 and 3.

Maimonides' text is usually accompanied, as it is here, by the massive commentary by Gerardus Vossius (father of Isaac and Dionysius) DE THEOLOGIA GENTILI ? a book said to have been an iinfluence on Isaac Newton; his library contained an "extensively dog-eared" copy of the book (John Harrison, THE LIBRARY OF ISAAC NEWTON, Cambridge University Press, p. 258).This particular copy has a very distinguished provenance. Dr. Frederic Gardiner was an Episcopal clergyman, Biblican scholar, founder of the American Exegetical Society, and author of several books (including a Harmony of the Gospels). Henry Ferguson, of Stamford, Ct., "studied theology in the Berkeley Divinity School. In 1872 he was made rector of Christ Church in Exeter, N. H., and in 1878 rector of Trinity Church, Claremont, in the same state. In 1883 he became professor of history and political economy in Trinity College, a position he filled with distinguished credit until commencement in 1906, when he resigned to become rector of St. Paul's School, Concord, N. H. In 1873 he married Emma J. Gardiner, daughter of Professor Gardiner of the Berkeley Divinity School ? His original specialty was Hebrew?"

        Pompa introitus Ferdinandi Austriaci

      1642. P.P. RUBENS - FESTIVAL ARCHITECTURE. Pompa Introitus honori serenessimi principis Ferdinandi Austriaci. By Jan Caspar Gevaerts. [12], 189, [13] pp. Illustrated with engraved title-page and 43 plates (including frontispiece), all executed by Theodoor van Thulden after original designs by Peter Paul Rubens (some folding); 45 text-illustrations (of which 43 depict Roman coins). Folio, 563 x 410 mm, bound in full Dutch vellum, gilt on cover with the name "Ieremias Wildens," gilt spine, ties. Antwerp: Theodoor van Thulden, [1642]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, one of 600 copies printed, of this remarkable fête book documenting the entry of Prince Ferdinand of Austria into the city of Antwerp, profusely illustrated with large engraved plates designed by Rubens. The prince was sent to the Netherlands to assist the aging Isabella in governing the country (she died before he arrived); a series of triumphal arches and stages was specially built for the occasion, the program of subjects developed by Nicolaas Rockox, Rubens, and Gevaerts. "To commemorate the event the city published this book containing thirty-nine etchings by Theodoor Van Thulden of the gateways and stages, as well as the paintings placed in them. They were accompanied by lengthy descriptions and reproductions of ancient coins used as iconographical references" (Held). Van Thulden, Rubens, and other artists worked for two years (1634-35) on the decoration of the triumphal arches and decorations for entry of the new Stadholder, the Cardinal Infanta Ferdinand of Austria, into Antwerp on 17 April 1635. All these festive decorations, which were fixed along the route of the procession, are known from this great work of copper engravings which van Thulden was given a contract to publish, and which appeared in 1642. Rubens's title-page, engraved by Jacob Neefs, is exhaustively described by Held, who relates the artist's design to the actual arches and stages realized for the Triumphal Entry, "a flattering panegyric of the greatness of Spain joined to the hope that the long period of war should end in victory - and make way again for the blessings of peace" (Held, p. 148). Of the 43 plates, there are myriad depictions of the arches, gates, and stages - architectural triumphs - as well as one plate (41) illustrating an elaborate firework scene, and one plate of the Austrian family tree (32).

        Zinne-beelden, oft Adams appel verciert met seer

      1642. VEEN, Jan van der. Zinne-beelden, oft Adams appel verciert met seer aerdige Const-plaeten, mitsgaders Syne oude ende nieuwe ongemeene Bruydt-lofs ende Zege-zangen. [24], 523 pp. Illustrated with an engraved title and 50 etched emblems. 4to., 205 x 165 mm, bound in contemporary Dutch vellum. Amsterdam: Everhard Cloppenburgh, 1642. First Edition of the poet Jan van der Veen's renowned Dutch emblem book, the only edition to include the French diptychs, and the only one issued in the larger quarto size. The title vignette and fifty etchings accompanying van der Veen's Adams Appel are the work of the Dutch artist Salomon Savery (1594 - after 1665), nephew of the painter Roelandt Savery and one of the most productive printmakers associated with book illustration in seventeenth-century Holland. Savery's etchings principally combine landscape and genre in a series of evocative pastoral scenes aptly complementing van der Veen's ironic explications of contemporary Dutch morality. The art historical importance of Savery's etchings for the Adams Appel has been pointed out by Otto Benesch, who remarked that the delicate, painterly prints figure "among the finest specimens of early Dutch naturalism in book illustration." For its seventeenth-century audience, the Adams Appel must have had especially broad appeal; Landwehr has recorded no fewer than nine editions of the work published by 1745. Jan van der Veen (1578-1659) spent his life as a poet and chemist in Deventer and dedicated the Adams Appel to the city council there. Two additional collections of van der Veen's verses accompany the Adams Appel: Overzeesche Bruylofs-zangen (Wedding Songs, pp. 267-402) and Overszeesche Zegezangen (Victory Songs, pp.403-523). The etching for emblem XIV (p.54) is in the earliest state, before the cancel; most copies containing the later version. Landwehr, Low Countries 705. Praz 522-3. Hollstein XXIV, 181.

        Europe. "Europa Nova Delineatio

      Europe: Frankfurt MW Hoffman for Matthäusr Merian 1642-59. Copper engraved map of Europe from Matthaus Merian's edition of Johann Ludwig, Gottfried's, "Historische Chronica oder Beshreibung der funerstein Geschten so sich von Abfang der Welt..". Black & white; verso blank. Map of the continent of Europe decorated with ships and monsters to the Atlantic Good impression; folded; rust spot in the sea above Madiera islaands. Gottfreid's "Historische Chronica" was published by. Merian between1642-59 using his own plates from the "Topographia Germania" and the "Theatrum Europaeum" as illustrations. Matthäus Merian der Ältere (or "Matthew", "the Elder", or "Sr."; 1593 ?" 1650) Born in Basel, Merian learned the art of copperplate engraving in Zürich. He next worked and studied in Strasbourg, Nancy, and Paris, before returning to Basel in 1615. The following year he moved to Frankfurt, Germany where he worked for the publisher Johann Theodor de Bry, who was the son of renowned engraver and traveler Theodor de Bry. In 1617, Merian married Maria Magdalena de Bry, daughter of the publisher, and was for a time associated with the de Bry publishing house. In 1620 they moved back to Basel, but three years later returned to Frankfurt. In 1623 Merian took over the publishing house of his father-in-law after de Bry's death. In 1626 he became a citizen of Frankfurt and could henceforth work as an independent publisher. He spent most of his working life in Frankfurt. With Martin Zeiler (1589 - 1661), a German geographer, and later (circa 1640) with his own son, Matthäus Merian (der Jüngere, i.e. "the Younger" or "Jr.") (1621 - 1687), he produced a series of Topographia. The 21-volume set was collectively known as the Topographia Germaniae. It includes numerous town plans and views, as well as maps of most countries and a World Map?"it was such a popular work that it was re-issued in many editions. He also took over and completed the later parts and editions of the Grand Voyages and Petits Voyages, originally started by de Bry in 1590. After his death, his sons Matthäus Jr. and Caspar took over the publishing house. They continued publishing the Topographia Germaniae and the Theatrum Europaeum under the name Merian Erben (i.e. Merian Heirs) Europe Europe

The general half-title has been doubled and restored in low margin by a strip of paper ancienne.Adrian Morlière, canon of the cathedral of Amiens gathered throughout his life an awful lot of material on the history of his city . The book proceeds in the form of articles and does not use the classic but summary of the annal form, but the items have a time evolution, Roman to modern times. We distinguish a catalog of the bishops of Amiens, the Counts and Governors or Lieutenant of the city. The Treaty on the Houses of Picardie contain valuable information. In addition to the historical, the author added to the end of each part of many poems of his own. Although the focus is mainly put more on the history of the city, there are many sections on churches, the ramparts and the description of the city. "Although the 'book The Morlière is poorly written, but it is useful & necessary, and even rare" notes Lenglet-Dufresnoy. At today's reader, the book will mainly appear messy in its first part, but full lessons on the city.
