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.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johannes Blaeu
Amsterdam 1645 - [Amsterdam: JoannesBlaeu, c.1645], from the ‘Atlas Novus’, Latin text on verso.A MASTERPIECE OF BAROQUE CARTOGRAPHY, A MAP AND VIEW OF OSNABRÜCK, BY THE MOST CELEBRATED MAPMAKER OF THE ERA, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, WITH THE MOST RESPLENDANT ORIGINAL HAND-COLOR.Dimensions: 20 x 23.5 inches (510 x 600 mm), on a full, untrimmed sheet, as originally issued.This exquisite map depicts the historic Prince-Bishopric (Hoschstift) of Osnabrück, whichwas an autonomous entity within the Holy Roman Empire from 1225 until 1803. The region is now part of the state of Lower Saxony (Nieder-Sachsen), Germany. Osnabrückwas an important market town,and as Blaeu commented in the descriptive text, “It is said that the name derives from the cow hides that once could be found in the surrounding countryside, as if Ossenburg”. In the sixteenth-century the prince-bishopric turned to Lutheranism, but by the time that the present map was printed, it was engulfed in the tumult of the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648). In 1624, the new prince-bishop, Cardinal Eithel Frederick, forcefully reinstated Catholicism, until the Swedes captured Osnabrück in 1633, holding the city until the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. The sumptuously adorned map features a magnificent profile view of Osnabrück, centered on the town’s great Romanesque cathedral. The map is also adorned with the ornate coat of arms of the prince-bishop, a splendid dedicatory cartouche, and an inset map of the nearby enclave of Reckenberg, while each of the jurisdictions depicted on the map are adorned with … [Click Below for Full Description]

De l'imprimerie d'Arnoud Cotinet, à Paris 1645, Pet. in 8 (10x16cm), 358pp. ; (14) 381, relié. - New edition, probably the third, after the 1635 and the 1644. Missing title page of Visions, but we believe that publishing is also 1645. Translation by De la Geneste. Letters knight of espargne follow Buscon. Full Calf frozen contemporary (perhaps XVIII). Smooth back decorated. Part of title in red morocco. Print rather poor quality (the usual kind in Rouen), thus having freckles and pale yellow paper. Copy cropped short. First page of Visions restored margin. The France will not ultimately full justice to this great writer of the Spanish Golden Century, overshadowed by the success of Don Quixote, a contemporary of his work; work as characterized by burlesque and satire in a language perfectly and virtuoso baroque; maybe this chiseled language and mastered it is the cause of his difficult approach in France, but also in his own country. His best known work remains the picaresque novel Don Pablo de Segovia (The adventurer Buscon), irresistibly funny, sometimes bordering deliciously with vulgarity, but always maintained a style. Visions seem even more confusing by their audacity, the biting irony, besides reading quite diflicult because of the many instances of overlapping speech. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

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 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. 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 incr … [Click Below for Full Description]

A map depicting Breknoke county in the south of Wales with an attractive mileage cartouche and title cartouche at the bottom and coats-of-arms at the top. Verso: Text in Spanish. Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founding father of the single most important cartographic publishing company in the Netherlands for nearly one hundred years. Blaeu’s firm was based in Amsterdam, the center of European cartography at the time. Blaeu was also the hydographic expert for the famous East India Company and the chief cartographer of the United Republic of the Netherlands. Willem, along with his son Johanne, published the first two volumes of "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” in 1635 by 1672, however, the atlas had expanded into 12 volumes, the "Geographia Blaviana”, depicting in about 600 maps the entire known world with most up to date cartographic exactness of the time. The Bleau-atlasses, meant for the wealthiest Europeans, were produced using exceptionally high quality standards of engraving, typography, paper and hand-coloring, not to mention being expertly surveyed within the company.

Johannes Blaeu
Amsterdam 1645 - [Amsterdam: Johannes Blaeu, c.1645], from the ‘Atlas Novus’, Latin text on verso. A MAGNIFICENT MAP OF THE FIERCELY-CONTESTED REGION OF SILESIA, NOW IN POLAND, 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.Silesia was for centuries one of the most contested and linguistically diverse regions of Europe. Centered on the great city of Wroclaw (Breslau), the region was long home to large populations of Poles, Czechs, and German-speakers. Its territory was divided for centuries into numerous small states, until 1526, when all of Silesia fell under the rule of the Habsburgs of Austria. It would remain under Austrian rule until it was conquered by Prussia’s Frederick the Great in 1742. Blaeu largely based his map on Martin Helwig’s celebrated map of Silesia, printed in 1561. This splendid map is adorned in the lower-left corner with an elaborate allegorical cartouche, while Silesia’s arms grace the opposing corner. By the time this map was published, Johannes Blaeu was already the most famous and successful cartographer and geographical publisher in the world. Building on the legacy of his late father, Willem Blaeu (1571-1638), the maps, atlases and globes produced at his Amsterdam workshop were universally admired for the great artistic mastery of the Baroque artistic style, their unparalleled geographic progressiveness, and the magnificent quality of the engraving, hand-colo … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dimensions: 20 x 23.5 inches (510 x 600 mm), on a full, untrimmed sheet, as originally issued. This exquisite map features the historical region of Swabia, which occupies most of the modern German state of Baden-Württemberg and the western regions of Bavaria. The region is named after the Suebi tribe which migrated to the area from the Baltic Sea about 2,000 years ago. Swabia became a duchy of the Frankish Empire in 486. For a generation from 1488, the region was the centre of the powerful Swabian League of principalities. Following the Reformation, most of the region was comprised of the Margravate of Baden-Baden and the Duchy of Württemberg. Featured on the map are several important cities, notably Stuttgart, Augsburg, Ulm, Zürich, Lucerne, as well as Lake Constance, where the borders of modern Germany, Switzerland and Austria meet. The map is adorned with a very elegant title cartouche. By the time this map was published, Johannes Blaeu was already the most famous and successful cartographer and geographical publisher in the world. Building on the legacy of his late father, Willem Blaeu (1571-1638), the maps, atlases and globes produced at his Amsterdam workshop were universally admired for the great artistic mastery of the Baroque artistic style, their unparalleled geographic progressivenes … [Click Below for Full Description]

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".
