        Relation de la province du Japon.Including: BARRETTO, Francesco. Relation des missions de la province de Malabar, de la comp: de Jesus. Tournay, Adrien Quinqué, 1645. Small 8vo (14.5×9 cm). Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment, later endpapers.

      - Alt-Japan-Katalog 278 (1 copy); Cordier, Japonica, col. 360; WorldCat (5 copies); cf. Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 379-380. Rare first edition of the French translation of an important Jesuit account of the Far East by Antonio Francesco Cardim and an important account of the Malabar region in India by Francesco Barretto. Originally published in Italian, also in 1645, they here published together, translated by François Lahier.Although the title of Cardim's work might suggest it discusses only Japan, it is especially important for its extensive accounts of Thailand and Vietnam, among the earliest we have, and also describes St. Paul's College in Macau, China, the first Western University in the Far East, where Cardim served as rector from 1632 to 1636. It covers the history, religions (notably Buddhism) and customs of the regions. Barretto's account of Malabar "begins with a brief but informative discussion of conditions in Malabar, followed by a review of affairs in the missions to the St. Thomas Christians and to Cochin, Ceylon, Jaffna, Madura, Mannar, the Coromandel coast, and Bengal" (Lach & Van Kley). With some mostly minor and marginal water stains in the last quires, more serious in the last few leaves, leading to some damage and an old restoration in the last leaf with no loss of text. Binding a bit soiled and slightly wrinkled. Still a good copy of a rare work on the Far East and India.

(cgc) JohnMilton, (1608-1674). Shocked at his wife's desertion in 1643, after just thirty days ofmarriage, responded with the publication of several pamphlets protesting the marriage lawregarding divorce. In 1643, he anonymously published The Doctrine and Discipline ofDivorce, Restored to the good Sexes from the Bondage of Canon Law and Mistakes and in1644, The Judgement of Martin Bucer concerning Divorce. These were received with extremepublic, church and government condemnation which led to his publishing "Tetrachorden". TheTetrachordonis so-called because it treats four passages from Scripture (Genesis,Deuteronomy, Matthew, and First Corinthians), synthesizing them into a defence of divorce.In this, Milton replies vehemently to both lay and clerical antagonists.

      Amsterdam: Blaeu, 1645. Map. Very Good. Hand-colored copper-engraving of Eastern Europe, depicting "Sclavonia, Croatia, Bosnia cum Dalmatiae Parte" and showing the Danube River and its tributaries across the Balkans and "the political divisions of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia and Dalmatia". At the top of the map are, respectively, the brilliantly-colored coats of arms of The Venetian Republic, The Hapsburg Monarchy, and The Ottoman Empire. Mercator's cartouche is in top right corner, below which are two distance gauges -- German and Italian -- and a ship in the lower left corner, in the Golfo Di Venetia (Gulf of Venice). Vertical fold (as called for). Some faint, thin bleed-through "trails" to text-side from hand-coloring on map side, and presence of 7 3-inch pieces of tape to edges reveals most likely, matting and mounting at some point in its history. Edited by Willem Janszoon Blaeu, using the original cartographic projections of Gerard Mercator. "Sclavonia, Croatia, Bosnia cum Dalmatiae Parte" shows the Danube River and its tributaries across the Balkans and delineates "the political divisions of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia and Dalmatia".

Vertical fold (as called for). Some faint, thin bleed-through "trails" to text-side from hand-coloring on map side, and presence of 3-inch pieces of tape to edges reveals most likely, matting and mounting at some point in its history. Blaeu was a well-known Dutch cartographer and Atlas maker/publisher who lived from 1571-1638. After his death his two sons Johannes (Joan, 1596-1673) and Cornelis carried on their father's business until the family print house was destroyed by fire in 1672. This particular map is included in Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, sive Atlas Novus in quo Tabulæ et Descriptiones Omnium Regionum (Theater of the World, or a New Atlas of Maps and Representations of All Regions -- 1645). In 1632, Willem Jansz. Blaeu published, in two volumes, his Atlas Novus (New World Atlas) in Latin, Dutch, German and French (the text on the back of this map being in French). After Willem's death and the assumption of the business by his sons, this atlas was expanded to six volumes, then to a dozen.

Ouvrage bien complet des deux parties, la seconde s'intitule : Observationum Medicarum Oppido rararum in Spa et Leodii animadversarum liber unicus.Très bel exemplaire de ce livre célèbre sur les eaux de Spa.Né vers 1570, Henri Heers était natif de Tongres en Belgique ; on sait qu'il avait acquis une grande connaissance de la philosophie, des mathématiques et de la médecine et qu'il voyagea beaucoup en Allemagne, Espagne et France, mais on ignore où il prit son bonnet de médecin. Il exerça la médecine depuis au moins 1605 et resta plus de 30 ans le médecin des princes Ernest et Ferdinand de Bavière, électeurs de Cologne ; il demeurait à Liège et allait chaque année faire une cure à Spa, ce qui explique sa connaissance approfondie de ces eaux et de leur indication thérapeutique. Il serait mort vers 1636. (Dezeimeris, T.III, 1ere partie, p.83 ; Vander Linden -éd. 1662, p.237-238 ; absent de Waller).

      Lisbon, por Paulo Craesbeeck, 1645. - 4°, recent antique sheep, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, crimson leather lettering piece, gilt letter, text-block edges rouged. Caption title. Woodcut initial. Overall in good to very good condition. (4 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this rare description of the voyage to Portugal of a new ambassador from France. Details are given about the trip, the weather, landings, and shipboard life. Once arrived in Portugal, the ambassador, Louis de Goth, Marquis de Rouillac, stayed briefly at the Monastery of Belem before traveling to Lisbon, where he was introduced to the king and queen and many others, and exchanged gifts.King Louis XIII of France had signed a treaty of alliance with Portugal on June 1, 1641. The alliance was part of the diplomatic finagling involved in the Thirty Years' War, which began as a war between Catholics and Protestants, but widened into a battle between the Bourbons and Habsburgs: hence the French at this time supported rebellions in Catalonia and in Portugal. The War significantly affected the outcome of the Portuguese struggle for independence (the Restauração), since it prevented the King of Spain from directing his full military might against Portugal.*** Arouca R388. @Exposição bibliográfica da Restauração 1226.

        Abraham and Isaac.

      1645 - Etching on laid paper. New Hollstein's first state (of two); 16 x 13 cm. Foxing and acidification with associated discolouration visible throughout sheet. The sheet has been trimmed down slightly but this has not affected print area. The paper is very soft and thin with some wrinkling throughout. There is a small tear to the upper left edge and a small loss to the lower left corner, the latter does not interrupt the printed area however. Print sheet is affixed to card mount along right edge. Mounted and framed. A beautiful etching by Rembrandt, who often depicted scenes from the Jewish Bible and had produced about three hundred etchings during his lifetime. The work relates to the Akedah (the ritual sacrifice) episode. Obvious tension is felt in this scene, where Abraham and Isaac seen stopped along their way to the site of the sacrifice and Isaac is seen asking his father where is the lamb for the offering. Abraham explains by pointing upwards with one hand, while clasping his heart with the other, that God will provide the lamb. Isaac listens obediently as he holds the bound wood for the offering. Copies of this work are held in the collection of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and in the National Gallery of Art collection in Washington. The New Hollstein Dutch & Flemish Etchings, Engravings and Woodcuts, 1450-1700. no. 224, i/ii.

      1645. 8vo. 289-405 pp., in: Tijdschrift van het Koninklijk Nederlandsch Aardrijkskundig Genootschap, tweede serie, deel XXIV no. 3 (15 Mei). 289-545, (1) pp. With 2 folding maps and a folding table. Original printed wrappers. First edition. - In 1645, Captain Cornelis Roobacker set out from Bandar Abbas with two small Dutch ships for the first trading mission to Basra, which could only be reached with small vessels in the shallow waters of the upper end of the Gulf. Three logbooks of this expedition have survived in the Dutch General State Archives; the only one of these to be published is the logbook no. 280a, here edited for the first and only time by A. Hotz. Among the plates are a modern map of the Gulf region as well as a 17th century Dutch nautical chart which the editor errouneously attributed to Roobacker. "Roobacker's ships had English charts on board, but Roobacker complained that they were very inaccurate [... He] made a chart of his travels between Laraq and Basra, with marks of depths and accurate notes on geographic latitude. This chart shows his progress up to Bubiyan" (Slot, The Origins of Kuwait [1991], p. 18). - Occasional slight foxing; a good copy of an important and much-quoted source. B. J. Slot, The Arabs of the Gulf 1602-1784, p. 11. OCLC 71448278.

      1645. Small 4to (225 x 175 mm). 2 parts in one vol. (11), 150, (25) ff. 39, (1) ff. Title page printed in red and black; woodcut chapter initial and head-tail pieces, 2 text illustrations and 3 full-page woodcuts. Full vellum, title gilt on spine red label. Somewhat later edition of the first important work on the history of Egyptian medicine. Alpini (1553-1617) was an Italian physician and botanist who spent three years in Egypt studying botany and hygiene as a companion to the Venetian Consul Giorgio Emo. This work is considered "one of the earliest European studies of non-western medicine. Alpini's work dealt primarily with contemporary (i.e. Arabic) practices observed during his sojourn in Egypt. These included moxibustion - the production of counter-irritation by placing burning or heated material on the skin - which Alpini introduced into European medicine [...] Alpini also mentioned coffee for the first time in this work" (Norman). Jacobus Bontius (Jacques de Bondt, 1592-1631), whose work on Indian medicine is included, was a Dutch physician and botanist. He travelled to Persia and Indonesia to study the botany of the area. He was the first to study cholera on the island of Batavia in 1689, before it was known in Europe, and died on Java. His botanic and medical works were published after his death by Pisonius. He "was probably the first to regard tropical medicine as an independent branch of medical science. He spent the last four years of his life in the Dutch East Indies, and his book incorporates the experience he gained there. It is the first Dutch work on tropical medicine and includes the first modern descriptions of beri-beri and cholera" (Garrison/M. 2263, citing the 1642 first edition). - Binding slightly brownstained in places.

        Les Histoires d'Herodote mises en Francois

      Antoine de Sommaville, en la Galerie des Meiciers, & Augustin de Courbe, 1645. Small folio Illustrated with engraved tile page in red and black, chapter headings and tail pieces original vellum over stiff boards, expertly recased with new head and tail bands, hand titled in brown ink on spine Herodotus (484 BC - c. 425 BC) is thought to have been born in Halicarnassus; he was at one time banished from his home to the island Samos by Lygdamis. He returned to Halicarnassus and participated in overthrowing the tyrant, however, he was not in favor with the citizens and left for Thurii, an Athenean led colony in southern Italy. He is thought to have died there. Cicero named Herodotus "Father of History." His "Histories" first appeared about 425 B.C. in Athens, and translated from the Greek (Ionian) into Latin by Laurentius Valla in about 1450, revised by Heusbach in 1537; Aldus Manutius published an edition in Greek in 1502 in Venice, and thereafter several editions in Greek and Latin appeared: 1541, 1565, 1584, 1592, 1594. He wrote in Ionian, which is a different language or dialect from Dorian used in Halicarnassus. He is considered "the Father of History" although he has also been referred to as "Father of Lies" for his subjective descriptions of peoples and events. Some of this is related to monies received or not received by Thebands, Corinthians, Athenians, etc. that he wrote about. When The Histories were collected, they were broken into nine parts, each named after the nine Muses with Clio, the Muse of History taking claim over the first book. The rest of the book follows what can be seen as a loose history of four Persian kings. The history of Cyrus takes up the first book, Cambyses takes up Book 2 and some of three which leads into the dynastic history of Darius whose reign fills up the books up to 6, and finally Xerxes caps of The Histories in Books 7 and 8. This is perhaps the most broad way to get an overview of the crafting of The Histories although Herodotus learned, perhaps from Homer, that this method is excellent for storing great variety and movement of many narratives. The Persian-Greek Wars provided some time-line thematic structure (even though Herodotus would weave backwards and forwards in time at point), but other thematic structure is to be found as well throughout The Histories. One such theme was Herodotus's view of the interaction of human action and its influence on historical causation, that of retribution and vengeance and that those who wrong others will see their payment coming to them. Another such theme is Herodotus's commonly held Greek belief that pride goes before the inevitable fall. This hubris is often seen in Herodotus's histories as the expansion of empires. - egs(dot)edu Vellum with some slight staining, spine with some dust soiling, pastedowns split at vellum wraps, else a nice, tall, crisp copy Some copies have the later title page of 1646 added, this copy does not since it was published in 1645

Small folio (28.5 x 19 cm). With engraved frontispiece and 6 large engraved folding plates by Romeyn de Hooghe (plate size ca. 23 x 35 cm). Contemporary vellum.

      Hollstein IX, p. 120, 103-108 (lacking frontispiece); Landwehr, De Hooghe book illustrator 38; STCN (7 copies). Rare first edition, with fine emblematic plates, illustrating the injustice and cruelty of the war waged by Louis XIV of France against the free and independent Dutch Republic. Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708) was unquestionably the most gifted and the most prolific Dutch book illustrator of the second half of the 17th century. His work displays the political grandeur and disasters of war in the Dutch Republic, including the disastrous year 1672, depicted dramatically and with great splendour. The large plates are richly designed and full of intricate emblems and allegories, fully explained in the accompanying text; an emblematic poem is added to each plate. With manuscript annotation in ink on pastedown. Slightly browned throughout with some thumbed margins, edges of frontispiece slightly frayed, otherwise in very good condition. Head of front board restored, binding otherwise good.

        Altro diletto che imparar non trovo

      1645. Un giovane uomo al servizio delle Virtù e della Scienza, nota anche come Altro diletto che imparar non trovo. Acquaforte, circa 1645 - 50, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nel primo stato di tre, avanti l'indirizzo del Westerouth. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana, rifilata alla linea marginale, tracce di pieghe di carta al verso, piccoli restauri perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il soggetto di questa stampa, di una complessa allegoria, riflette la concezione del diletto o piacere intellettuale del Testa, nelle sembianze del giovane eroe nudo e puro, che impersona il pittore - filosofo descritto da Vitruvio. Come sottolinea la Cropper, l'ispirazione di questa scena è classica. In particolare, il giovane deriva dalla statua di Mercurio di François Duquesnoy, ed entrambe si rifanno all'Antinoo del Belvedere. La concezione del diletto qui raffigurata riprende la teoria aristotelica per la quale l'uomo tende alla conoscenza secondo un processo intellettuale che Testa considera assolutamente positivo e puro, lontano dai piaceri mondani e dei sensi, rappresentati dalle figure dei satiri e delle baccanti, sulla destra. Il Diletto è raffigurato, in posa eroica, ai piedi della statua di Minerva, dea della sapienza, con accanto libri, un globo celeste e una grande tavola di studi planimetrici, in omaggio alla convinzione di Vitruvio per cui lo studio si basa su principi architettonici e matematici. Il motto Altro Diletto ch'imparar non trovo, che si legge sullo scudo è una citazione colta dal Trionfo dell'Amore di Petrarca, tratta dall'edizione di Vitruvio. Ad oggi, non sono noti disegni prepatori per quest'incisione, che per stile e padronanza del chiaroscuro è affine alle tavole delle Stagioni e perciò databile intorno al 1644. A young man in the service of Virtue and Science, also known as Altro diletto che imparar non trovo. Etching, circa 1645 - 50, signed in the plate in the bottom left corner. Example in the first state of three, before the address of Westerouth. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper with unidentified watermark, trimmed to the borderline, traces of folds of paper on verso, small restorations perfectly executed, otherwise in excellent condition. The subject of this work, a complex allegory reflects the conception of pleasure or intellectual pleasure of the head, in the likeness of the young hero naked and pure, who plays the painter - philosopher described by Vitruvius. As emphasized in the Cropper, the inspiration of this scene is classic. In particular, the young man comes from a statue of Mercury by François Duquesnoy, and both are based Antinoo Belvedere.
