Thysio, Antonio. [Antonius Thysius]
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.

CHIASSI, Onorato]
Milan n.p. 1645. 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. 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]

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.

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].

Jan Baptist van Fornenburgh, attributed to (active 1608-ca. 1649) Tulips and other flowers in a decorative urn Bodycolor and gouache on vellum, grey ink framing lines Vellum size: 13 5/16” x 10 1/16”; framed size: 23 11/16” x 20 7/16” Holland, ca. 1645 Provenance: Private collection; Christie’s (Dresden), November 10, 1999; W. Graham Arader III Excellent condition This striking watercolor is an important example of the late Dutch Renaissance as manifested in botanical art. The 1600s were the most exciting period for developments in many branches of Dutch painting, and artists most often focused on making their mark in the field of still-life and flower painting. The similar styles embraced by a number of painters led to a characteristic Dutch style, one that combined flawless technical ability and creative compositional innovation. Jan Baptist van Fornenburgh was active quite early in the period, and his works at once referenced the masters who had come before and helped to pave the way for others. In his compositional arrangements he undoubtedly was familiar with the Bosschaert group of painters. In 1629, Fornenburgh joined the Hague guild of painters. He had already been working for over two decades but amazingly only 22 works can be firmly attributed to him. The present work may be included amongst this esteemed grouping, based upon comparision with other known examples of the artist’s work (see photocopy of Christie’s Lot information). This is a masterful example of the late Dutch Renaissance style, encompassing all the elements that made it internationally recognized. … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 their colorful crests.

[Amsterdam: JoannesBlaeu, c.1645], from the ‘Atlas Novus’, Latin text on verso.A MAGNIFICENT MAP OF THE HILDESHEIM REGION, 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 elegant map depicts the region surrounding the town of Hildesheim, located in the modern German state of Lower Saxony (Nieder-Sachsen). The historic Prince-Bishopric of Hildesheim (Hoschstift Hildesheim), was an autonomous entity within the Holy Roman Empire from 1235 to 1803. According to a legend, as told by the Brothers Grimm, around the year 815, King Louis the Pious, son of Charlemagne, was out hunting near Hildesheim when he noticed that he had lost his most treasured possession, a pendant featuring a relic of the Blessed Virgin Mary. He dispatched his men to scour the countryside in search of it. Finally they encountered a magnificent flowering rose bush which held the pendant in its branches, of which it would not yield. In commemoration, Louis built a chapel on the site, and to this very day, the ancient Millennium Rose bush (‘Tausendjährriger Rosenstock’) grows along the chapel’s wall. This sumptuously decorated map featured the coat of arms of the prince-bishop in the upper-left, while the opposing corner is occupied by a magnificent titular cartouche, on which a putti, carrying a globe and a compass, allegorically represents the art of surveying.

Alexander Ross (1591-1654) was Chaplain to Charles I and vicar of Carisbrooke.

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].

[CHIASSI, Onorato]
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 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.Nothi … [Click Below for Full Description]

SCOTI, Jules Clement
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.

Boschini Marco
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 (Pianta della Canea), 60 (Cerigo) e 61 (Thine), 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 eserc … [Click Below for Full Description]

GIOVIO (Paolo)
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. Paolo Giovio, Bishop of Nocera, had one of the most celebrated collections of Italian portraits. In a letter dated 1521, he expressed his intention to put together some real portraits of men of letters, whose eyes would stimulate men to virtue. Giovio had in mind adding portraits of artists, popes and princes, and in 1537 built a museum to house the paintings in Como. Giovio convinced famous men to send him their pictures with the promise that, in his museum, they would have been immortalized for posterity. 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. Brunet III, 584.

Engraved frontispiece portrait by the renowned artist Robert White (1645-1702). With 40 beautifully engraved anatomical plates. Contemporary calf, rebacked; a lovely, large copy. A handsome copy of the scarce second edition Browne's anatomical atlas of the muscles, first published in 1681. One of one of the most popular anatomical books of its time, it went through ten editions. Browne (1642-1700?) was physician to St. Thomas's Hospital and later to Charles II. The marvelous plates were copied, with alterations, from works by Casserius and Spigelius. The present work is notable as the first to have names of the muscles engraved directly upon the plates, and for inclusion of Sir Charles Scarburgh's syllabus of the muscles printed on the folding table.&
