With Spigelius the great age of Paduan anatomy comes to an end. He was the last of the Vesalian line..." (Hagelin).

Zweite deutsche Gesamtausgabe. Aegidius Albertinus' klassische Barockübersetzung enthält auch de Guevaras beliebten Fürstenspiegel "Reloj de principes", welcher außer Lebensregeln zu allen möglichen Anlässen "auch Vieles über Kinderpflege, Erziehung und speziell auch gynäkologische und kosmetische Ratschläge" enthält (Hayn/G. II, 704). - Der schöne Rollenstempelband zeigt innerhalb eines Bogenfrieses eine Rollenstempelbordüre mit den beschrifteten Wappen des Römischen Reichs, von "Neu-Österreich" (Bindenschild), Oberösterreich und "Alt-Österreich" (niederösterreichisches Lerchenwappen); unter dem Bindenschild signiert "H P". Haebler (I, 329, 5), der offenbar von einem fast zur Unkenntlichkeit beriebenen Einband ausgegangen war, vermochte die Bezeichnungen nur teils zu lesen und zu deuten und las das oberösterreichische Wappen als das Nürnbergs, "allerdings heraldisch recht falsch gezeichnet [...] Leider sind die Wappenbezeichnungen überhaupt etwas undeutlich [..., und] es ist alles etwas unklar" (I, 330). Innerhalb einer schmalen ornamentalen Rolle stehen die Plattenstempel (I, 89, II u. III) der Justitia (vorne) und Fortuna (hinten) mit schöner Hausmarke über dem Monogramm "HD". Das bezeichnete Stempelmaterial weist Haebler dem 1600 gestorbenen Nürnberger Buchbinder Hans Pfister bzw. dem 1582 an der Pest gestorbenen Wittenberger Hans Dietz und späteren "Wittenberger Fachgenossen" (I, 90) zu; der vorliegende Band ist somit ein schönes Beispiel für die Weiterverwendung der Renaissance-Stempel noch weit bis ins 17. Jahrhundert hinein. - Durchgehend gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig; einige Griffregister (das letzte ausgerissen). Einband stellenweise berieben, insgesamt jedoch von schöner Erhaltung. - VD 17, 23:000185K. Dünnhaupt, 236, 53.1. Goedeke II, 583, 42. Palau 110.076. Vgl. Faber du Faur 901.

        Lucii Cornelii Europaei monarchia solipsorum. Advirum clarissimum Leonem Allatium. [Amsterdam: Elzevier], 1648. [Bound with] Regnum et regia Plutonis. Sive de Inferni et inferorum laudibus. Dissertatio festiva. Auctore. Vincentio Mussa.

      . Small 12mo. Two books bound together. Full contemporary vellum. 1.) J-C. Scoti, Monarchia solipsorum. Second Edition. pp. 158, [4]. First printed in Venice, 1645. This second edition was printed by Elzevier. Pages are generally clean. A bibliographical note (listing several references) and an old ownership inscription - "ex bibliotheca Kripperdorfia" - are written in old hand on the front blank. The Monarchia solipsorum is bitter satire written against the Jesuits which, in its day, caused quite a sensation. The author describes a secret society of "Solipsen" (those who wish to govern entirely) understood to mean the Jesuits. The supposed laws, secret instructions and clandestine operations of the organization are discussed. The author's name is given as Lucius Cornelius Europaeus which is a pseudonym. Authorship is usually attributed to an ex-Jesuit named Jules Clement Scoti. Some, however, believe Melchior Inchofer (who's name appeared on a later edition) is the true author. The book also contains a dedication to the Greek scholar Leo Allatius by Timotheus Cursantius. [Willems 1648; Berghman 1535; Querard, Les Supercheries 789; Caillet 10067 - listing the French translation and the 1645 edition]. 2.) Vincentio Mussa, Regnum et regia Plutonis.

        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 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]. Hardcover.

        Les Histoires dÕHerodote mises en Francois

      Paris: Antoine de Sommaville, en la Galerie des Meiciers, & Augustin de Courbe, 1645., Paris - Small folio. original vellum over stiff boards, expertly recased with new head and tail bands, hand titled in brown ink on spine. . Vellum with some slight staining, spine with some dust soiling, pastedowns split at vellum wraps, else a nice, tall, crisp copy. Illustrated with engraved tile page in red and black, chapter headings and tail pieces. First edition in the French language. Some copies have the later title page of 1646 added, this copy does not since it was published in 1645. 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 ÒFather of History.Ó His ÒHistoriesÓ 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 Òthe Father of HistoryÓ although he has also been referred to as ÒFather of LiesÓ 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.

        PHILIPPICA PORTVGVESA, CONTRA LA INVECTIVA CASTELLANA. AL REY NUESTRO SEÑOR DON IVAN EL IV.

      - POR EL P. M. FR. FRANCISCO DE S. AGVSTIN de la Prouincia de S. Antonio. Año de 1645. EN LISBOA. Por Antonio Alvarez Impressor del Rey. In fólio de 25,7x17,5 cm. com [xiv], 287 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele. Exemplar um pouco aparado à cabeça. Inocêncio II, 322. ?Fr. Francisco de Sancto Agostinho de Macedo, celeberrimo portuguez, e varão verdadeiramente encyclopedico, na phrase de Barbosa. Foi natural, não da cidade de Coimbra, como este diz, mas do logar e freguezia de Botão, que fica duas leguas distante. N. em 1596. Professou primeiramente o instituto jesuitico, entrando na Companhia aos 14 annos; passou depois em 1642 para a Ordem franciscana e provincia de Sancto Antonio dos Capuchos; e d"esta no anno de 1645 para a da Observancia, chamada de Portugal, cujo habito conservou até o fim da vida. - Elrei D. João IV o empregou successivamente nas embaixadas mandadas a França, Roma e Inglaterra, no intento de ser por estas potencial reconhecido como legitimo rei de Portugal. Foi muito acceito ao papa Alexandre VII, que o nomeou Mestre de Controversia no collegio de Propaganda Fide, Lente da Historia Ecclesiastica na Sapiencia de Roma, etc.; mas perdeu depois a graça do pontifice, por não condescender com elle na emenda de uma palavra, que o mesmo queria riscada no epitaphio, que Macedo fizera por sua ordem para o mausoleu de um seu domestico! Passou então para Veneza, onde no anno de 1658 defendeu por tres dias as mui faladas conclusões de Omni scibili, e depois no de 1667 outras, ainda mais famosas, que duraram por oito dias, intituladas Leonis Sancti Marci rugitus litterarii. A Republica lhe conferiu as honras de cidadão veneziano, mandando collocar o seu retrato na bibliotheca de S. Marcos, e lhe deu a cadeira de Philosophia moral na Universidade de Padua, que regeu desde 18 de Dezembro de 1667 até á sua morte, occorrida no 1.° dc Março de 1681. Philippica portuguesa contra la invectiva castelhana. Lisboa, por Antonio Alvares 1645. fol de XXIV 297 pag. Como escresveu este livro contra Filippe IV de Castella, quiz imitar Demosthenes, que intitulou Philippicas as suas eloquentes invectivas contra Philippe, rei de Macedonia. ?

Première édition de cette nouvelle traduction, la seconde en français établit par Vion d'Alibray ou Dalibray contenant les additions qui se trouvent dans la seconde édition de Baeza de 1594, publiée pour la première fois en espagnol en 1575 sous le titre: ''Examen de ingenios para las sciencias''. La première traduction française établit par Chappuis date de 1580. Juan Huarte (1529 ou 1530-1580), philosophe et médecin originaire de Navarre, natif de Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, s'établit en Andalousie. L'ouvrage d'avant garde, considéré comme la première tentative de mise en relation du physiologique avec le psychologique, analyse les différentes aptitudes des étudiants quant à la capacité d'étudier telle ou telle discipline. Ouvrage fondateur de la psychologie, comprenant des observations sagaces d'une grande validité et non sans humour. Après la première édition, l'oeuvre fut en partie censuré par l'inquisition, et ne put reparaître amendée et augmentée posthume qu'en 1594. Il eut une immense influence à travers toute l'Europe, grâce à de multiples traductions; plus de trente éditions et rééditions dans les principales langues européennes sont parues depuis lors. Le livre influença Cervantes pour la création du personnage de Don Quichote. Il fut également attentivement étudié par Montaigne et Montesquieu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Sussex. "Suthexia Vernacule Sussex

      British Isles: Amsterdam Apud Joahannem Blaeu. 1645. Original coloured, copper engraved map of Sussex, from the Fourth volume of Joan Blaeu's"Le theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas. " French text to verso. Decorative Royal crests; 4 coats of arms; fleet of ships off Pemsey and further offshore in "The British Sea" Bright original colour; generally clean, one or two very minor spots; paper fault; minor wormtrack to extreme lower edge of white margin. Good. . Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C. ( United East India Company)in 1633 he died in 1638. leaving the company to his sons Joan and Cornelius Of Cornelius little is know; his name appearing on in the prefaces of books and atlases only until c1645. Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635. (preface dated 10-3-1634) two volumes. The final edition comprising again two volumes with 109 & 99 maps respectively with German text also published 1635; an edition with Dutch text, (preface dated 22-4-1635) 104 & 103 maps; French text( preface dated 1-7-1635) 105 & 103 maps; and with Latin text (preface dated "ipsis Aprillis")105 & 102 maps. In 1640, after Willem's death a Third volume with French text and comprising 58 maps of Italy and 8 of Greece, was published; later the same year an edition was produced with Latin text. Still in 1640, variant editions in both languages were issued with an appendix of 4 maps of the British Isles as a precursor to the Fourth volume, which would be a complete description thereof. In 1645 the Fourth volume, "Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas, Mis en lumiere par Guillaume et Jean Bleau. Quartiesme Partie. " with a dedication to " A la serinissme Princesse Henriette-Marie Reine de la Grande Bretagne, France & Yrlande. " was published; preface dated 1 October 1645. This volume consisted of 58 maps with description of all the British Isles. The "Atlas Novus" was eventually extended to six volumes with the addition of a fifth volume, Scotland in 1654 and the following year a sixth the "Atlas Sinensis"of Martini. Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time. Blaeu eventually updated and extended the "Theatrum" producing the "Atlas Major" in various formats from 9-12 volumes Koeman1, Bl 42A. [311] British Isles Sussex

        De dignitate & augmentis scientiarum libri IX Ad regem suum. Editio nova, cum indice Rerum ac Verborum locupletiffimo.

      Franciscum Moiardum et Adrianum Wijngaerde 1645 - Leyde, Apud Franciscum Moiardum et Adrianum Wijngaerde, 1645. In 12 de 10 ff.-749pp.-1 f.-36 ff., reliure en demi maroquin rouge cerise du milieu du XVIIIème siècle, dos à 3 nerfs ornés de fines frises dorées, caissons finement dorés avec des fleurs delicatement dorées, titre estampé et doré sur le cuir du dos encadré d'un double filet doré, surligné et souligné d'un filet doré, plat en parchemin teinté de rouge, tranches dorées, frontispice orné d'une gravure mettant en scène un vieil homme assis avec un grand livre qui aide un jeune homme à s'élever, intérieur frais, bon et bel exemplaire. La première édition de cet ouvrage fut publiée en 1623. Dans ce livre, Francis Bacon (1561-1626) expose une théorie du savoir et de la connaissance tout à fait nouvelle et originale pour l'epoque, et en totale contradiction sinon opposition avec les théories précédentes issues de la Renaissance. Celui ci ne prétend pas construire une Encyclopedie summae, mais au contraire, une anti-encyclopedie, en perpétuel mouvement et augmentation. Pour le philosophe, la notion de connaissance doit être, peut être et est en constant développement. Cette nouvelle réalité permet de faire une place importante à des matières telles que l'Histoire en général, l'histoire naturelle en particulier, et faisant partie de cette dernière l'Histoire des arts mécaniques. Cette nouvelle classification est une ré-évaluation empirique, expérimentale et technologique des realités. Ainsi, les divers champs de connaissances et d'expériences sont reliés les uns aux autres au travers d'un empirisme critique élaboré, fruit des nouveaux concepts sus-cités. Francis Bacon (1561-1626), célèbre philosophe britannique, fut un des esprit politique les plus puissants de l'histoire anglaise, après des études principalement juridiques, il recouvra les plus hautes charges du Royaume, devenant Lord Grand Chancellier d'Angleterre. Il est également l'auteur de: '' Sermones fideles, ethici, politici, oeconomici: sive Interiora rerum. Accedunt Faber fortunae. Colores boni & mali, &c.'' (1597), ''Novum organum'' (1620), ''Atlantis Nova'' (1622), ''Scripta in naturali et universali philosophia'' (1653). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Bright original colour, clean; one or two very minor spots. Fine. Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C. ( United East India Company)in 1633 he died in 1638. leaving the company to his sons Joan and Cornelius Of Cornelius little is know; his name appearing on in the prefaces of books and atlases only until c1645. Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635. (preface dated 10-3-1634) two volumes.

In 1640, after Willem's death a Third volume with French text and comprising 58 maps of Italy and 8 of Greece, was published; later the same year an edition was produced with Latin text. Still in 1640, variant editions in both languages were issued with an appendix of 4 maps of the British Isles as a precursor to the Fourth volume, which would be a complete description thereof. In 1645 the Fourth volume, "Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas, Mis en lumiere par Guillaume et Jean Bleau. Quartiesme Partie.

This volume consisted of 58 maps with description of all the British Isles. The "Atlas Novus" was eventually extended to six volumes with the addition of a fifth volume, Scotland in 1654 and the following year a sixth the "Atlas Sinensis"of Martini. Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time. Blaeu eventually updated and extended the "Theatrum" producing the "Atlas Major" in various formats from 9-12 volumes Koeman1, Bl 42A. [307] British Isles Wiltshire

      In Milano In Casa di Gio. Battista Bidelli..., 1645. 4to, 265 x 210 mms., pp. [xx], 132, with engraved title-page, engraved portrait of dedicatee, and 12 full-page engraved portraits of Milanese viscounts, engraved by Paolo Bianchi, contemporary limp vellum (a little soiled); inner margins of front and rear end-papers at little wormed with some very slight water-staining, none of which affects the text or the engravings, a very good copy, with the 19th century book ticket of Conte Gropello di Alessandria on the front paste-down end-paper. Although Giovio (1483 - 1552) took a degree in medicine, he was primarily interested in a literary career, in which he was notably successful, so much so that Leo X gave him the rank of Cavaliere, with a pension. The present work was published first at Paris in 1549, Vita XII Vicecomitum Mediolani Principum, and Domenichi's is the first Italian translation, notable for Bianchi's exceptionally fine engraved portraits.

      Small 12mo. Two books bound together. Full contemporary vellum. 1.) J-C. Scoti, Monarchia solipsorum. Second Edition. pp. 158, [4]. First printed in Venice, 1645. This second edition was printed by Elzevier. Pages are generally clean. A bibliographical note (listing several references) and an old ownership inscription - "ex bibliotheca Kripperdorfia" - are written in old hand on the front blank. The Monarchia solipsorum is bitter satire written against the Jesuits which, in its day, caused quite a sensation. The author describes a secret society of "Solipsen" (those who wish to govern entirely) understood to mean the Jesuits. The supposed laws, secret instructions and clandestine operations of the organization are discussed. The author's name is given as Lucius Cornelius Europaeus which is a pseudonym. Authorship is usually attributed to an ex-Jesuit named Jules Clement Scoti. Some, however, believe Melchior Inchofer (who's name appeared on a later edition) is the true author. The book also contains a dedication to the Greek scholar Leo Allatius by Timotheus Cursantius.

(38), 434, (14, letzte 2 weiß) Seiten Umschlag der Zeit - Jöcher IV, 66f - Böhm-Bawerk S. 29 ff. - Die Zinslehre von Charles Dumoulin (Molinäus (1500-1566), wurde von anderen Juristen aufgenommen und a. von Hugo Grotius und besonders von dem französischen Kalvinisten Claude de Saumaise (Salmasius 1588-1653), der als Professor in Leyden in mehreren Schriften für die Produktivität des Geldes eintrat. Beginnend mit seiner Schrift "De usuris" (1638) eröffnete der den Gelehrtenstreit über das Zinsverbot. Das vorliegende Werk und die daran gebundenen Streitschriften geben Zeugnis von der Auseinandersetzung über die neuen Lehren. "Sie haben Richtung und Inhalt der Zinstheorie fur mehr als hundert Jahre fast aus schließlich bestimmt, und selbst in der heutigen Doktrin sind, ... noch manche Nachwirkungen der Salmasianischen Lehre erkennbar. ... Sie bezeichnet nicht allein einen Fortschritt, sondern für lange Zeit auch einen Höhepunkt des Fortschritts. Für mehr als hundert Jahre bestand die weitere Entwicklung fast in nichts anderem, als daß man Salmasius' Lehre immer allgemeiner annahm, mit mehr oder minder geschickten Variationen vortrug, und seinen Argumenten den jeweils zeitgemäßen Zuschnitt gab. Über ihn hinausgekommen ist man aber im Grunde nicht bis auf die Zeit von Smith und Turgot.

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 love?s torment in a later hand. Chiassi?s drawings, modelled from Antonio Tempesta?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 women?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 horse?s head from his printed source to keep it from disappearing behind the calligraphy framework. When he borrows Tempesta?s Ostrich Hunt, only the protesting bird?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 ?Scritto da P. Honorato Chiaissi,? 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.

        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.
