        Ducatus Holsatiae Nova Tabula.

      Amsterdam: Willem and Johannes Bleau, 1644. - Single sheet (23 ? x 19 ¾ inches, full margins with platemark). Fine engraved map with original hand color of Holstein in Germany, with two insets, decorated with two compass roses and a ship (lightly toned with central vertical crease, with original mounting guard on verso). From Blaeu's atlas Theatrum Orbis Terrarum sive Atlas novus, this detailed map of the German province of Holstein includes insets of Dagebüll on the west coast, and Stapelholmer, which appears to fall north of Rendsberg. The west coast is drawn with care towards the dangerous mudflats and sandbars of the Wadden Sea, illustrated with a small vessel following a marked passage to the Elbe River. Blaeu was a pupil of the great Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, from whom he learned a very scientific approach to the field of cartography, which served to enhance his reputation. His early work concentrated on globe making, but by the early seventeenth century he began producing separately issued maps. Blaeu founded his publishing firm in 1596, and with the collaboration of his sons, Cornelius (1616-1648) and Joan (1596-1673), it was the most productive cartographic establishment in the Netherlands until it was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1672. Appointed mapmaker to the Dutch East India Company in 1633-1634, Blaeu had access to fresh geographical information that was not available to any of his contemporaries. He published his first world atlas, the Atlantis Appendix, with 60 maps in 1630, and continued to produce new maps at such a rate that by 1634, he abandoned the single volume format and announced his intention to publish a new world atlas, entitled the Theatrum, which eventually grew into the monumental 11-volume Atlas Maior, completed by his son Joan in 1662. (Van der Krogt 2). For more information about this map, or a warm welcome to see it and other books in our library at 72nd Street, NYC, please contact Tara Mishkovsky, M.A. in the Rare Book Department.

        LA VERITE DE LA RELIGION CHRESTIENNE

      Paris: De l'Imprimerie de nouveaux caracteres . . . par Pierre Moreau, [8 Juin, 1644]. First Edition of this Translation n. This edition of Grotius' famous treatise on the validity of Christianity features a lovely period binding and a charming cursive type invented by printer, engraver, and master calligrapher Pierre Moreau. According to Updike, the type is unusual in that it "really appears to be writing--a careful and lively copy of the agreeable calligraphy of the period. The ornaments used with it are reproductions of writing-masters' scrolls and whimsical figures, and here and there heavy flourishes are added to produce a further illusion of penmanship." Moreau (ca. 1599-1648) produced three very pretty engraved devotional books before developing a moveable type that could produce a calligraphic effect. He debuted his new fonts in 1643, calling his printing house the "Printer of new characters," and produced 30 books with them in the five years before his death. The binding here is also finely wrought, being made with high quality materials and adroitly decorated. In many ways a latter-day Erasmus, the renowned jurist and man of letters Hugo Grotius (1583-1645) was one of the most learned men of his time, and his landmark publication "De Jure Bellis et Pacis" earned him the title of the founder of the modern science of the law of nature and nations. First printed, in Latin, in 1627, the present book, far and away the most popular of Grotius' works, is a treatise maintaining the truth of the Christian religion, as opposed to other religions, rather than a polemic in support of a particular variety of Christianity at the expense of another Christian sect. The piece reflects the author's attitude toward the great schism: he dedicated himself to reconciling Catholic and Protestant by emphasizing a common piety, an approach for which he was obviously made to suffer greatly. Works printed in Moreau's cursive type are uncommonly seen in the marketplace, and they are especially rare in fine contemporary bindings like the present one.. 175 x 113 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 1/2"). 8 p.l., 541 pp., [1] leaf (privilege). Translated by François Eudes de Mezeray. First Edition of this Translation. Attractive contemporary burgundy morocco, gilt, covers with three French fillet frames, the two inner frames with oblique fleurons at corners, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central fleurons, curling cornerpieces, gilt titling, marbled pastedowns, all edges gilt. Updike I, 207-08. Boards a little spotted, leather a bit crackled, light wear to joints, minor offsetting on endpapers from glue used for turn-ins, leaves a shade less than bright with occasional small rust spots, but an excellent copy nevertheless, the text clean and fresh, and the solid, very pleasing binding with nothing approaching a condition issue.

Här används för första gången tillnamnet Tyrann på Kristian II. Författaren var borgmästare i Linköping. Ericus Schroderus (1575-1647) var, tillsammans med brodern Johan Skytte, lärare åt prins Karl Filip och utsågs 1612 till korrektor över kronans tryck med tillägget att han skulle låta översätta sådant som kunde anses nödvändigt och nyttigt, vilket 1622 befästes med titeln translator regius. Han grundade senast 1634 ett eget tryckeri och agerade själv förläggare för många av sina översättningar med hjälp av frikostiga anslag från statskassan, genom den så kallade "bibeltryckstunnan". "Svenskt biografiskt lexikon" skriver att det är troligt att Schroderus ensam gav upphov till fler trycksidor än vad som sammanlagt hade tryckts i Sverige under hela 1500-talet!

      Tiguri: Joh. Jacobi Bodmeri 4to (20.7 cm, 8.1"). [20], 116 pp.. 1644 [with the same author's] Dissertatio historico-theologica de heptaplis parisiensibus ex pentateucho ita instituta.... Tiguri: Joh. Jacobi Bodmeri, 1649. 4to. [40] pp. First edition of this important treatise on the Samaritan Pentateuch, written by a Swiss-born Orientalist and author of a number of well-respected works on theology and philology. Here he rebuts the assertions of Jean Morin, who had edited the de Sancy manuscript, regarding the origins, antiquity, and authority of the Samaritan text. The main work concludes with Hottinger's "Epitome capitum libri Josuae" and is followed by the related "Dissertatio historico-theologica de Heptaplis Parisiensibus . . . ," the latter also in its first edition, with a separate title-page dated 1649. Recent speckled paper–covered boards, front cover with printed paper label. Some very faint waterstaining and light spotting, mostly confined to margins; in fact, nice and clean.

        LES PLAISANTES JOURNÉES DU SR FAVORAL: OÙ SONT PLUSIEURS RENCONTRES SUBTILES POUR RIRE EN TOUTES COMPAGNIES

      Paris: Chez Jean Corozet, 1644. Third Printing n. This is a prettily bound collection of witty anecdotes that promise "laughter in all company" and that deliver by pointing out the foibles of the noble, the wealthy, and the pompous. First published in 1615 under the title "Les Contes et Discours Facécieux," the popular volume was reprinted three times in the 17th century, and revived by Gustave de Brunet in 1868. Nothing is known of the "Sieur du Favoral," whose only publications were this work and a translation of Ariosto's "Orlando Furioso." Brunet suggests that the name may be a pseudonym, chosen to protect some courtier from the objects of his mockery. The extremely appealing binding is quite feminine in design--all flowers and lace, like something out of Fragonard or Boucher.. 148 x 86 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 1/2"). 191 pp. Third Printing. VERY ATTRACTIVE 18TH CENTURY CALF, ORNATELY GILT, covers with filigree frame forming two lobed compartments, each with a central lozenge composed of four fleurons surrounded by small flower tools, raised bands, spine panels with gilt starburst centerpieces, fleur-de-lys tools at corners, two small fore-edge clasps, marbled pastedowns, all edges gilt (older repair to head of spine, just touching gilt). Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Edward Cheney (probably the "E. Cheney" on Quaritch's honor roll of book collectors and the Edward Cheney whose library was sold at Sotheby's on 25 June 1886). Brunet II, 1197. Boards lightly soiled, upper cover with two short scratches, a couple of corners slightly bumped, leaves a shade less than bright, isolated small rust stains or ink spots, but still a really excellent copy, clean and fresh internally, and in a solid binding glistening with gold.

        Polycarpi et Ignatii epistolae: una cum vetere vulgata interpretatione Latina, ex trium manuscriptorum codicum collatione, integritati suae restituta. Accessit & Ignatianarum epistolarum versio antiqua alia, ex duobus manuscriptis in Anglia repertis, nunc primum in lucem edita. Quibus praefixa est, non de Ignatii solum & Polycarpi scriptis, sed etiam de apostolicis constitutionibus & canonibus Clementi Romano tributis.

      Oxoniae: Excudebat Leonardus Lichfield Academiae Typographus 4to (21.5 cm; 8.5"). cxlvi, [1], 243, [2], 53 pp.. 1644 Controversies have stages and the Ignatian Controversy had three. In the period from the first printing of the Ignatian letters (1495) till 1644, the Longer Greek recension was all that was known and it was accepted despite early awareness of some spurious aspects. => The second stage began with the publication of the present work in which Bishop Ussher printed the letters based on the Shorter Greek recension as found in Latin manuscripts in Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and in the private collection of Robert Montagu — the Greek text for which was soon found and published two years later. The final stage came in 1845 with the discovery of the Syrian “extract.” The texts of the Epistles of Polycarp and Ignatius are here presented in parallel columns, in the Greek of the Longer recension and in Robert Grosseteste's mid-13th-century Latin translation. Ignatius' Greek text is printed in red and black; red for words and passages not appearing in the Latin version reproduced on pp. 195–238, and, in the "Emendanda," for words and passages not appearing in the Greek text on pp. 239–41. Besides editing and translating the letters, Irish-born Ussher provides notes and an essay, “De Ignatii Martyris Epistolis, indeque . . . de Polycarpi quoque scriptis, atque Apostolicis Constitutionibus et Canonibus Clementi Romano tributis,” at the end of the volume. The ESTC record indicates that a portion of this work was salvaged from an edition of Ignatii, Polycarpi, et Barnabæ, epistolae atq[ue], martyria quibus praefixa est de Polycarpi & Ignatii scriptis Jacobi Usserii archiepiscopi armachani dissertatio: quae in hoc volumine continentur alia, operi praefixa synopsis indicabit that was accidentally burnt while being printed by Lichfield in 1642. Provenance: 17th- or 18th-century ownership signatures of "Will. Young" and of "John Dearle." In early 19th century given to Kenyon College by John Foster of Hertfordshire; in the 20th century in the library of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School (properly deaccessioned). Contemporary sprinkled calf, modestly tooled in blind with a double rule on covers; rebacked, original spine label reattached, new front free endpaper. Library bookplates and one-line rubber-stamps on pastedowns but not title-page; one leaf with small loss of paper in lower margin, not affecting text. Edges of title-leaf and leaf following darkened from offset of the turn-ins. => Solid, handsomely printed, interesting.

En 1581 renunció a ese puesto para consagrarse a la redacción de este Guidon general des finances, publicado por primera vez en 1585, que pasa por ser el primer manual de finanzas públicas francés. La obra contó con las anotaciones de Vinvent Gelée a partir de la 3ª edición, de 1594, y fue revisada, actualizada y ampliada por Sebastian Hardy en 1631, siendo su ultima y más completa edición, esta que ofrecemos de 1644. El objetivo de Hennequin era hacer un tratado general que abarcase el conjunto de las finanzas de la monarquía y, muy especialmente, su administración, porque solo existían tratados específicos de aspectos como las regalías, los impuestos extraordinarios, la devaluación de la moneda, etc., y se hacía necesario dotar de un modelo de gestión al conjunto de la actividad impositiva, mercantil y financiera de la corona que, en aquellas fechas era sinónimo del país, hasta que, con la introducción del concepto de riqueza de una nación, los dos ámbitos quedaran deslindados. Para dotar de sentido al conjunto de la gestión de la Hacienda real, Hennequin establece como punto de partida “le domaine”, “la propiedad de la tierra”, que era inalienable.

        Mémoires et remarques sur la vie de Damoiselle Bonne Galoys.

      1644 ca 1644 - Manuscrit in-4 de (840) pp., à 16 lignes par page, vélin rigide estampé, dos à cinq nerfs, double encadrement et armes sur les plats, chiffre BG en écoinçons répété sur chaque caisson au dos de l'ouvrage (reliure de l'époque). Exceptionnelle pièce calligraphiée du XVIIe siècle dont on ne connaît que ce seul exemplaire relié aux armes de Jean-Christofle Virey, auteur de ce monumental tombeau resté inédit, dédié à son épouse Bonne Galoys dont il fit graver le chiffre et l?urne funéraire sur les plats. Au lecteur, Si tu n'es affectueux ne lis pas ces remarques, car tu te moquerais des tendresses amoureuses dont elles sont parsemées. Que si tu les lis tu prendras un extreme plaisir en y voyant tant de marques d'un amour extraordinaire, et tu feras grande estime du rare objet qui le fit naistre. Né au commencement du XVIIe siècle, Jean-Christofle Virey, second fils du premier secrétaire du prince de Condé et poète Claude-Enoch Virey aussi secrétaire et notaire de la Maison et Couronne de France et maire de Chalon-sur-Saône, exerça successivement les charges de Conseiller du Roi, puis de maître des comptes de la Province de Bourgogne et de la Bresse. A la mort de son épouse Bonne Galoys dont il eut six enfants, Virey entra dans les ordres, devint chanoine puis achidiacre. Bibliophile, il avait hérité de la collection de livres de son père qu'il augmenta et relia à ses armes (écartelé aux 1 et 4, de gueules à 2 épieux d'or en sautoir, la pointe en haut, aux 2 et 3, d'or semé de lis, d'oeillets et de roses de gueules, à la devise Hinc omnes exctincti ignes, portant l'inscription Jean Christofle Virey) dont quelques rares exemplaires furent réhaussés dès 1644 du chiffre BG pour Bonne Galoys son épouse, accompagné de la représentation d'une urne sur laquelle figure la mention B Galoys cineres. Ainsi sa bibliothèque conservée pour la plus grande partie à Chalon-sur-Saône, est le témoin de son immense chagrin suite au décès de sa femme, où dans quelques ouvrages sont inscrits des vers latins de sa composition qui marquent sa détresse ; on les retrouve copiés de sa main sur la garde supérieure de ces mémoires entièrement dédiés à son épouse en six livres : A l'auguste mémoire de l'incomparable Bonne Galoys. Livre Premier, A l'exemplaire Bonne Galoys ; Livre second, Epitaphes instructives ; Troisieme Livre, Les vertus chrestiennes et morales viennent reconnoistre Bonne Galoys ayant augustement paru en son illustre personne ; Quatrième Livre, Les Amours ; Cinquième Livre, Les Dames ; Sixiesme Livre, Regrets. A la fin : Sonnet de Monsieur le maistre des comtes Virey, A l'ombre de madame sa femme par Marc Anthoine Saumeze de Chasans ; Acrostiche sur la mort de Damoiselle Damoiselle Bonne Gallois, Anagramme sur le tombeau de D. Damoiselle Bonne Galois Lis o bon Ange par Pierre Damien Saumeze de Chasans, [in fine] Epitaphium Per Illustris Domina Bona Galoys? Ponebat moerens optima coniugi Joannes Christophorus Virey rationum regiarum in Burgundia Magister. Très beau manuscrit d'un amour sublime relié à l'époque aux armes des époux, comme la quintessence d'une bibliothèque amoureuse au XVIIe siècle. On joint une notice biographique manuscrite de Bonne Galoys sur papier volant. Reliure légèrement restaurée. Guigard, 472 ; Olivier-Hermal-Roton, pl. 1709. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ITINERARIUM; OFTE SCHIP-VAERT NAER DOOST OFTE PORTUGAELS INDIEN.... [bound with:] REYS-GHESCHRIFT VAN DE NAVIGATIEN DER PORTUGALOYSERS IN ORIENTEN.... [bound with:] BESCHRIJVINGE VANDE GANTSCHE CUSTE VAN GUINEA

      Amsterdam, 1644. Folio. Old boards, skillfully rebacked in calf, retaining original leather labels. Some marginal waterstaining, some browning to text leaves, plates clean, one plate trimmed. Overall very good. Lacks the maps. A later edition of one of the great classics of early travel literature, originally issued in 1596. The first part, the ITINERARIUM..., relates Linschoten's experiences during more than a decade in the East Indies before returning to Holland to write his book. This is the best account for that era of the sailing routes to the East Indies and the Portuguese establishments in India, the Spice Islands, and southeast Asia. From the time of its publication until the end of the next century, Linschoten was an essential aid to navigators in the east Indies, and his book made him "the leading geographical figure in Renaissance Holland" (Penrose). Linschoten wrote three separate works, the first being described above. The three are always found together, although they have separate titlepages and paginations in all editions. The second section, entitled REYS- GHESCHRIFT VAN DE NAVIGATIEN DER PORTUGALOYSERS IN ORIENTEN...ALS OOK VAN DE GANTSCHE CUSTEN VAN BRASILIEN...ITEM VAN'T VASTE LAND ENN DIE VOOR EYLANDEN LAS ANTILAS GHENAEMT, VAN SPAENSCH INDIEN, provides sailing directions for the East Indies, as well as for Brazil and the West Indies. The third section, BESCHRIJVINGE VANDE GANTSCHE CUSTE VAN GUINEA...EN TEGEN OVER DE CABO DE S. AUGUSTIJN IN BRASILIEN..., describes the coast of Africa and South Atlantic navigation, as well as Brazil. All parts contain information concerning America, although most of it is concentrated in the second and third parts. Chronologically, this is the next to last edition of Linschoten, the final one appearing in 1663. This copy, while lacking the maps and several plates, is interesting due to its handsome contemporary coloring of the plates, all illustrating scenes in the East Indies.
