        Compendium Historiae Batavicae, A Julio Caesare usquead haec tempora. Accessit eiusde Discursus Oratorius in expugnationem Sassae Gandavensis.[History Of Holland Batavia]

      Lugduni Batavorum: Joannis Maire, 1645 Antonio Thysio, IC. & Professore in Academia Leidensi. [Antonius Thysius]. Compendium Historiae Batavicae, A Julio Caesare usquead haec tempora. Accessit eiusde Discursus Oratorius in expugnationem Sassae Gandavensis. 1645. Lugduni Batavorum, Ex Officina Joannis Maire. [48] 334 pages. Collated and complete. Roughly 2 ¼ by 4 ¼ inches. With an engraved title page. Text mostly in Latin with a few first pages in Greek. Antonius Thysius (1603-1665), a Dutch theologian, scholar and professor at Leiden, wrote this book, a history of Batavia and Westphalia (Holland), perhaps on commission for the country, as it seems many other histories of the like were penned in an effort by the Dutch government to chronicle and preserve its history. Various internet searches turn up a later (1652) edition of this work, although a 1645 entry can be found in an online database of a library in Innsbruck. 3 copies appear in libraries in World Cat searches. Bound in vellum with hand written titling and numbering on the spine. This copy is in GOOD condition. Light soiling to the covers. Moderate scuffing. Minor edgewear with some bumping and scuffing. Spine darkened. Small insect hole near foot of spine on the front cover. First 15 leaves with moderate worming at the tops of the pages, affecting text only on title page and engraved title page, but otherwise relegated to the top margin and lessening the further in the text one goes. Minor pen scribbling on the ffep as well as to the bottom of the engraved title where the previous owner's name was crossed out, and with some previous bookseller notations in pencil also on the ffep. The text itself is clean and tight with very minor browning to the first 290+ pages then moderate browning to the rest. Page 320 with a faint dog ear crease to the lower corner. A nice copy of this history of Holland, seemingly scarce in the marketplace. Photos available upon request.. Vellum. Good/No Jacket.

        Zeelandia Comitatus. [Map of Zeeland, Netherlands].

      [Amsterdam: JoannesBlaeu, c.1645], from the ?Atlas Novus?, Latin text on verso.A MAGNIFICENT MAP OF ZEELAND, BY THE MOST CELEBRATED MAPMAKER OF THE ERA, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, WITH THE MOST RESPLENDANT ORIGINAL HAND-COLORING. Dimensions: 20 x 23.5 inches (510 x 600 mm), on a full, untrimmed sheet, as originally issued. While the map embraces the greater area extending from Antwerp northwards to The Hague, it focusses on the former County of Zeeland, which was by then one of the founding ?Seven Provinces? of the Dutch Republic. Lying between two of Europe?s greatest shipping lanes, the Rhine and Schelde estuaries, the province consisted entirely of islands. The principal island, Walcheren, was home to the capital Middelburg and the busy port of Vlissingen (Flushing), while the other islands of Schouwen, North and South Beveland, and Tertolen lie to the north and east. In the text of the atlas, Blaeuopined that ?Zeelanders are keenly intelligent, highly industrious and generally considered judicious and perceptive?. He continued that, taking advantage of their exposure to the North Sea, ?The men are mainly sailors ? very good ones, for the most part, being courageous, quite undaunted by the perils of a storm, and having a thorough mastery of the maritime arts?. Indeed, in spite of Zeeland?s relatively small population, due to the industriousness of its citizens, it had an outsized role in the flourishing Dutch economy. Most impressively, Middelburg was home to one of the six chambers (?kamers?) of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), which was one of the guiding forces of global trade. In addition to being geographically progressive, this map is virtuously adorned with Baroque decoration, such as the allegorical provincial crest, featuring in a lion-rampant rising from the sea, held aloft by mermen; while the opposing corner features a magnificent dedicatory cartouche. Ships, the province?s economic lifeblood, ply the sea, which is traversed by rhumb lines emanating from an elegant compass rose. At the time that this map was printed the Blaeu family firm was the most celebrated and successful publisher of maps, atlases and globes in the World. The products of their Amsterdam workshop were universally admired for the elegance of their Baroque artistry, their progressive geography, and the magnificent quality of their engraving, hand-coloring and overall presentation. It was therefore no surprise that the Blaeu family?s maps and atlases occupied the pride of place in princely collections, and were conveyed as diplomatic gifts at the highest levels. The house of Blaeu had its genesis when Willem Blaeu, who had apprenticed, from 1594 to 1596, under the legendary Danish astronomer, Tycho Brahe, returned to the Netherlands and soon established himself as one of Amsterdam?s leading globe makers. In 1608, he produced monumental wall maps of the four known continents and the World, for which he gained great acclaim. He was subsequently appointed as both the official cartographer to the Dutch Republic and hydrographer to the Dutch East India Company (the VOC). Blaeu cultivated close connections with intellectuals and political leaders across Europe, granting him privileged access to the most advanced geographical knowledge, which gave him the winning edge in the increasingly competitive map market. In 1630, Joan Blaeu, who had received a Doctorate of Laws from the University of Leiden, joined his father?s business. In 1635 they commenced publication of a new and highly ambitious ?international edition? of a world atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, better known as the Atlas Novus, initially issued in two volumes (containing maps of the World, Northern Europe, Spain and select regions of New World, Africa and Asia), published in four languages (Latin, Dutch, German and French). After succeeding his father in 1641, Joan Blaeu published further editions, and progressively added new volumes.

        Renuncia que hizo la Religion de nuestro Padre S. Francisco de todas las Doctrinas y Conversiones

      The Franciscans leave Florida and Mexico. Los Franciscanos dejan Florida y México y piden ser enviados a España, las Filipinas o Japón, para continuar su labor. 1645. Toledo. Convento de San Juan de los Reyes. In folio (292 mm x 187 mm). 4 pp. Half reddish morocco, slightly rubbed. A fresh and clean copy, unevenly trimmed but perfect otherwise. The document begins by stating the historical importance of the Order in the Evangelization of the Indians of America, claiming recognition as the spiritual pioneers in Guatemala, Florida and the Philippines, and stressing that it was their Order that first came to American shores under the command and blessing of the Spanish Crown. Then explains how due to certain Papal decrees, the General of the Franciscan Order renounces ?for himself and the Franciscan Order- to their rights and properties in New Mexico, Yucatan, Zacatecas, Mexico and the Philippines, and all their work in the ?Spiritual vineyards? there, in view of those apostolic briefs which had been obtained ?by sinister means? for their disturbance and annoyance. He then requests the Pope to hand that property to anyone who can serve him better. The document ends with a petition to the King to make ships available to return the Franciscans to Spain, or, should they prefer it, to take them to the Philippines or Japan to continue their work. La carta empieza describiendo la importancia histórica de la Orden en la evangelización de los Indios de América, pidiendo reconocimiento como los pioneros espirituales en Guatemala, Florida y las Filipinas. Enfatiza y recuerda en que fue esta Orden la que primero llegó a las costas americanas con la aprobación de los monarcas españoles. Luego explica cómo, debido a ciertos Decretos Papales, el General de la Orden Franciscana renuncia para sí mismo y para la Orden a los derechos y propiedades en Nuevo México, Yucatán, Zacatecas, México y las Filipinas y a todo su trabajo en los ?viñedos espirituales? en la región, acusando a las bulas de haber sido obtenidas por medios siniestros. Demostrando el deber de obediencia hacia el Pontífice y una humildad sin límites, le pide que entregue su propiedad a quién pueda servirle mejor. Termina pidiendo a Rey de España la disposición de navíos para el retorno de los Franciscanos a España o a las Filipinas o Japón para continuar su labor Apostólica.

        Poems, &c. Written by Mr. Ed. Waller of Beckonsfield, esquire; Lately a member of the Honourable House Of Commons

      Printed: 1645  Octavo, 148 x 93 mm. First edition. A4, B-M8,N4,O8, P2. " If any of the four editions of published in 1645 can be said th have been authorized by Waller, this is certainly the one."(W-P) This copy is in in lovely condition internally. Full contemporary calf, housed in a custom box. The new binding is full modern calf. Waller was deeply involved in a royalist plot in 1643 to take the city of London in the name of King Charles. He was subsequently imprisoned in the tower, banished from parliament, fined, and exiled, barely escaping execution. He was readmitted to the house of commons in 1651 where he appeared a different style of man than the Edmund Waller of the 1630?s. He consistently argued against military despotism, and in favor of tolerance for dissenters, and quakers in particular. ?It is certain that the poems of Edmund Waller had been in circulation in manuscript some considerable time before their first publication. His lines on the escape of Charles (then Prince of Wales) from drowning, near Santander, though subsequently retouched, were probably written in or about the time of the event which they celebrate; but it was not until 1645 that the first edition of his poems was published. In spite of this, his reputation was already so well established that Denham wrote of him in ?Cooper?s Hill? (1642) as ?the best of poets,? and it is probable that no writer, in proportion to his merits ever received such ample recognition from his contemporaries. Waller will always live as the author of ?Go, lovely rose,? the lines ?On a Girdle,? and ?Of the Last Verses in the Book.?? (DNB)

        Il regno tutto di Candia delineato a parte, a parte, et intagliato da Marco Boschini venetiano. Al serenissimo prencipe e regal collegio di Venetia

      VENEZIA, DOPO 1645 (1651 VEDI CICOGNA) 1645 Venezia, dopo 1645 (1651 vedi Cicogna) In-folio (2) c. (1) c. (di tav.) 61 c. (di tav. nautiche incise su rame). Frontespizio inciso, antiporta figurato a piena pagina con Leone di San Marco con libro aperto "Pax Tibi Marce Evangelista Meus" e spada sguainata sopra l'isola di Candia. Cartoncino muto con dorso a tre nervi. Le carte 6, 60 e 61, mancanti sono state sostitute da riproduzioni su carta antica. Per il resto il volume è collazionato, pulito e in perfette condizioni. Durante il XVI secolo l'impero ottomano aveva esercitato una massiccia pressione sul Mar Mediterraneo e nei Balcani, spesso avvantaggiato dall'alleanza francese, giungendo sino in Ungheria. Nel '600 la politica dell'impero turco divenne anche più aggressiva, ma con la fine del secolo, le sorti dell'impero erano compromesse, ed esso non costituiva più un pericolo per l'Europa anzi divenne oggetto delle mire espansionistiche dei maggiori stati europei. Infatti, lo stato ottomano rimaneva anacronisticamente fermo alla struttura feudale, mentre i suoi avversari cristiani si organizzavano in regimi accentrati, sostenuti da una solida burocrazia che ne garantiva l'efficienza. I Turchi restarono del tutto estranei al rinnovamento culturale e scientifico che percorse l'Europa. Tale carenza compromise tutta la loro organizzazione tecnica persino nel campo navale. In un paese che faceva della guerra la propria attività fondamentale i sacrifici gravissimi imposti ai piccoli feudatari, tenuti a servire come cavalieri, finirono col rovinarli e coll'esasperarli, sicché gli eserciti diventarono sempre più indisciplinati e meno efficienti. Quando poi i sultani cercarono di sopperire con truppe mercenarie, le spese si moltiplicarono e li costrinsero a ricorrere all'inasprimento fiscale e all'alterazione delle monete, con le inevitabili conseguenze negative sui commerci e sulla produzione. Dal 1645 al 1669 (6 settembre, quando Francesco Morosini negoziò la resa) l'impero ottomano attaccò il possesso veneziano di Candia riuscendo ad impadronirsene, cedendo però alla Serenissima le terre dalmate e albanesi da questa conquistate durante il corso delle operazioni. Boschini Marco scrittore d'arte, pittore e incisore italiano (Venezia 1613-1678 o 1704). La sua opera principale è la Carta del navegar pitoresco (1660), in dialetto veneziano, dedicata all'arciduca Leopoldo Guglielmo e scritta in quartine rimate. Pur continuando la tradizione del dialogo fra l'amatore d'arte e il pittore (in questo caso, l'autore), il testo è diviso in otto parti come la rosa dei venti per meglio orientare il lettore nel mare della pittura veneziana. A Boschini si devono anche la prima vera guida artistica di Venezia, le Ricche minere della pittura veneziana (1674), e una guida di Vicenza (Gioielli pittoreschi della virtuosa città di Vicenza, 1676). Apprezzato incisore e cartografo, nulla rimane della sua attività pittorica. Beautiful condition, lacking three plates, professionally reproduced on old paper. Boschini, a Venetian painter, writer and engraver began work on this survey in 1645, the year the island was invaded by the Turks. When the work was published, the town of Heraklion (Candia) was in the fourth year of what was to become a twenty-two year siege: the topicality of the work and its subsequent popularity throughout the Christian world is unsurprising. Atabey 136; Blackmer 171 (incorrect plate count). Graesse "Tresor de Livres Rares et Precieux" voll. 1-2 p.500.Cicogna p.137. Dalla dedica: "Serenissimo Principe ill.mi et ecc.mi signori. Ho ben io Marco Boschini dell"anno 1644, presentato alla Ser.tà V.ra l'intaglio del Tempio Suo Regale, alla Beatissima Vergine della Salute inalzato. E del 1645, l'intaglio del Regno Suo mobilissimo di Candia contra 'l Turco difeso. Per dimostrare in Opre, cosi gloriose, e grandi, quasi in lucidi specchi, la Veneta singolarissima pietà, e munificenza. Ora avendo io continuate le mie fatiche nell'intagliare a parte a parte lo stesso Regno, mentre la Ser.tà V.ra continua à difenderlo Sola con stupore del Mondo tutto contra la potenza vastissima Othomana. Ritorno più che mai riverente, appie della Ser.tà V.ra e glie lo presento finito. Supplicandola à gradire l'offerta, non solo come fatta da suo fedellissimo Suddito, e Servo, E come rappresentanza di un Regno Suo proprio mà come felice augurio, che, s'ella tanto ha fatto, e fa, per conservarlo à Dio Nostro Signore: A lei ben anco debba dallo stesso Dio Nostro Signore essere giustamente conservato. e Suddito, e Servo Marco Boschini"

        Manuscript writing book with ornamental borders

      n.p. Milan: n.p., 1645. Elaborate manuscript by a mid-17th-century priest from Milan containing his own aphorisms, observations and quotations modeled after contemporary calligraphy manuals with unusually elaborate and well-executed figurative borders drawn in his hand, and interspersed with anguished outbursts on loveâ??s torment in a later hand. Chiassiâ??s drawings, modelled from Antonio Tempestaâ??s Hunting Scenes and contemporary emblem books, show mythological figures, exotic animals and putti, often matched to the content of the text. While we find no evidence that Chiassi was a professional artist, the numerous drawings show a talented hand for an amateur. A peacock and a monkey adorn the calligraphed text on vanity and conceit; the drawing of a blond woman with a provocative décolleté appears next to a warning on womenâ??s artifice. Chiassi borrowed his border imagery with wit, sometimes hiding parts of the drawings behind the calligraphy to increase the overall sense of three-dimensionality. Concerned with this balance between image and text, he altered the position of a horseâ??s head from his printed source to keep it from disappearing behind the calligraphy framework. When he borrows Tempestaâ??s Ostrich Hunt, only the protesting birdâ??s head and wings appear above the text; hunters rush at him from the sides of the frame with impossibly elongated, pronged sticks. A baying dog below from a different Tempesta Hunt completes the narrative circle. An unusual example of adapting the calligraphy book not for instructional purposes, but, apparently, for those of self-expression.Nothing further is known about the author, who identifies himself as a priest in his signature. The manuscript is a curious mixture of private and public, since it bears a dedication to one Abb. Mazentae (dated 16 August 1645), yet has an unfinished feel to it, with pages left blank. The texts reveal an obsession with the inconstancy of women, whose natural propensity towards infidelity needs to be curbed by vigilant fathers and husbands.. Oblong 4to. [30 x 21.5 cm], (56) ff. of which 40 written and signed by Chiassi, including three alphabets, all except one written and ornamented on recto only, 27 pages with finely executed drawings, generally 4 subjects per page surrounding calligraphic sample, (5) blank ff., (10) ff. in a later hand and without ornamentation. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum, covers gilt-stamped with ornamental borders and title â??Scritto da P. Honorato Chiaissi,â? front cover soiled and worn; fingersoiling in lower right corners, some soiling on scattered leaves, minimal toning. An internally excellent copy in a fine, if worn, contemporary binding.

        Compendium Historiae Batavicae, A Julio Caesare usquead haec tempora. Accessit eiusde Discursus Oratorius in expugnationem Sassae Gandavensis.[History Of Holland Batavia]

      Lugduni Batavorum: Joannis Maire, 1645 Antonio Thysio, IC. & Professore in Academia Leidensi. [Antonius Thysius]. Compendium Historiae Batavicae, A Julio Caesare usquead haec tempora. Accessit eiusde Discursus Oratorius in expugnationem Sassae Gandavensis. 1645. Lugduni Batavorum, Ex Officina Joannis Maire. [48] 334 pages. Collated and complete. Roughly 2 ¼ by 4 ¼ inches. With an engraved title page. Text mostly in Latin with a few first pages in Greek. Antonius Thysius (1603-1665), a Dutch theologian, scholar and professor at Leiden, wrote this book, a history of Batavia and Westphalia (Holland), perhaps on commission for the country, as it seems many other histories of the like were penned in an effort by the Dutch government to chronicle and preserve its history. Various internet searches turn up a later (1652) edition of this work, although a 1645 entry can be found in an online database of a library in Innsbruck. 3 copies appear in libraries in World Cat searches. Bound in vellum with hand written titling and numbering on the spine. This copy is in GOOD condition. Light soiling to the covers. Moderate scuffing. Minor edgewear with some bumping and scuffing. Spine darkened. Small insect hole near foot of spine on the front cover. First 15 leaves with moderate worming at the tops of the pages, affecting text only on title page and engraved title page, but otherwise relegated to the top margin and lessening the further in the text one goes. Minor pen scribbling on the ffep as well as to the bottom of the engraved title where the previous owner's name was crossed out, and with some previous bookseller notations in pencil also on the ffep. The text itself is clean and tight with very minor browning to the first 290+ pages then moderate browning to the rest. Page 320 with a faint dog ear crease to the lower corner. A nice copy of this history of Holland, seemingly scarce in the marketplace. Photos available upon request.. Vellum. Good/No Jacket.

        The Philosophicall touch-stone: or observations upon Sir Kenelm Digbie’s discourses of the nature of bodies, and of the reasonable soule…

      London: Printed for James Young and are to be sold by Charles Green, 1645. First edition. Hardcover. Small 4to. pp. [16], 131, [1]. With the required imprimatur leaf (sig. A1) before the title. Bound in modern blind tooled full calf after early style. An old bookseller’s ticket is preserved and pasted on the inside front cover. A miniscule institutional stamp is present on one of the front blank free fly-leaves. Interior pages contain occasional spots of mild foxing / staining / wear. A small signature is written on the title page above the word “observation.” A pair of initials are written and crossed out in an early hand following the last line of text on p. 131. Bound at the rear of this copy are 14 unnumbered leaves (the final of which is soiled) containing a postscript and a table of contents to a completely different work. Alexander Ross (1591-1654) was Chaplain to Charles I and vicar of Carisbrooke. His “Philosophicall Touch-Stone” was an important refutation of the unorthodox Aristotelianism in Sir Kenelm Digby’s “Two Treatises.” Ross touches on many issues relevant to science and chemistry including the atomic theory of the ancients, the composition of matter and the nature of light. Ideas concerning magnetism, color and sound are also discussed [See Duveen]. D. Rubin’s bibliography of Sir Kenelm Digby states that Ross’s treatise is “…Probably the first English discussion of atomism after Digby’s ‘Two Treatises.’” [Duveen, p. 516; Neville Library II, pp.392-393; Krivatsy NLM 9953; Rubin, Sir Kenelm Digby 221; ESTC R200130].

I-III. Köln, chez P. du Marteau, 1677. 12:o. (24),427 + 477 + 496 s. Tre eleganta hfrbd från 1700-talets slut med rikt guldornerade ryggar, röda titeletiketter och mörkgröna deltiteletiketter samt röda snitt. Delvis med smärre bruna fläckar, t.ex på s. 187-89 och 213 i del I samt s. 167-73 i del III. Fuktränder i inre marginalen i början och slutet av varje volym, mot slutet av tredje delen mer omfattande. Andra delen med rostfläck och litet hål i marginalen på s. 451-66. Bra ex. med Johan Medlings exlibris.. Warmholtz 8322. Utkom första gången i Paris 1674-75 och följdes snart av två nya upplagor, varav detta är den ena. En tysk översättning såg också dagens ljus. Pierre Hector Chanut (1604-67) var 1645-49 fransk ministerresident i Sverige och innehade ambassadörsposten i Stockholm och i Lübeck 1649-53. Martin Weibull har i "Historisk tidskrift" 1887-88 redogjort för verkets innehåll i jämförelse med de bevarade originalrapporterna och kritiserar i sina artiklar utgivaren Linage de Vaucienne för uteslutningar, misstag etc. Weibull hävdar vidare att verket egentligen består av två delar; den ena innehåller depescher av Chanut och den andra av hans sekreterare Picques. Den sistnämnde var, under Chanuts frånvaro i Lübeck, chargé d'affaires i Stockholm. Arbetet är en av de betydelsefullaste källorna till drottning Kristinas historia. Chanut var kulturellt intresserad och sammanförde t.ex. Kristina och Descartes. 1826 utkom en svensk översättning av verkets första del med tillagda kommentarer av drottning Kristina hämtade ur hennes eget annoterade exemplar av boken
