After a period of religious discord in Utrecht, Wtenbogaert moved to The Hague, where he became an influential member of the Remonstrant party and its leader after the death of Arminius in 1609. After the arrest in 1618 of influential Remonstants, including Johan van Oldenbarneveldt and Hugo Grotius, Wtenbogaert fled to Antwerp. He was permitted to return to the Dutch Republic in 1626, after which the autobiography more or less finishes. Bookblock seperated from flyleaves at the front, but the binding otherwise good.

Upon his release he returned to London by way of Madagascar, which inspired his enthusiasm so much that he wrote the present book advising the East India Company's rivals to take advantage of it as the ideal location for a European colony.With the bookplate Crosby Gaige (1882-1949).

Vries (1589-1646) to the north of Japan, together with the popular account of a Dutch West India Company voyage to Chile under Hendrik Brouwer (1581-1643). Brouwer, one of the directors of the Dutch West India Company, acted as the commander of a fleet of six ships, specially sent to the western coast of South America to activate the trade between the Dutch and the natives. During this voyage, which resulted in the first place in a better knowledge of that coast, Brouwer died at Chiloe and was buried at Valdivia in August 1643. Appended to that journal is the very important account of a charting voyage to Japan. That same year (1643) Maerten Gerritsz. Vries, got "instructions from Governor Van Diemen ... to examine the countries to the north of Japan and to assess their economic and trading potential, particularly with regard to mineral wealth" (Howgego).

TORSELLINI (TURSELLINUS), Orazio.
Het leven vanden heylighen Franciscus Xaverius die den eersten vande Societeyt Jesu het H. Evangelie in Indien ende Japonien heeft ghepredickt. Antwerp, Cornelis Woons, 1646. 8vo. Contemporary vellum. [16], 544 pp. Rare first edition of the Dutch translation by the Jesuit Father Franciscus de Smidt from Antwerp of Torsellini's classic biography of Francis Xavier (1506-1552), originally published in 1594, enlarged and corrected by the author in 1596, and published in numerous Latin editions plus translations into Spanish, Italian, French, German, English and Dutch.Torsellini brought together an enormous number of anecdotes about Xavier that had never been published before, and gives considerable detail about his travels in India, the East Indies, China and Japan from 1541 to his death in 1552, and his founding of the Society of Jesus with Loyola and the Jesuit mission in Japan. Torsellini (1544-1599), who also edited Xavier's letters, uncritically accepts the stories that had been passed on by word of mouth for the forty-two years since Xavier's death, greatly expanding the number and nature of his miracles, showing him expelling devils, stilling tempests, raising four people from the dead, etc., but he was probably the last biographer to troll new sources of information until modern times.Good copy.

With 2 engraved frontispieces and 230 engraved plates, including a folding world map, folding map of the East Indies, maps, views, plans and other illustrations. 18th-century mottled calf, richly gold-tooled spines. Professional restorations to the hinges, ends of the spine and to the extremities of the boards; although they are done in sheepskin, they remain subtle. First edition of "the most important Dutch collection of travel literature published during the seventeenth century ... Commelin's introduction to the collection provides a historical sketch of Dutch commerce in the Indies from its beginning until about 1631. It also produces the first Dutch East India Company (VOC) charter of 1602 and the renewed charter of 1622.

POIRTERS, Adriaan.
Het masker vande wereldt afgetrokken.Antwerp, widow and heirs of Jan Cnobbaerts, [1646]. 4to. With engraved title-page by Antony van der Does and 13 engraved emblems and 8 engravings in text by Frederic Bouttats. 18th-century half calf. [24], 320 pp. Very rare first edition of an emblem book by the Dutch Jesuit Adriaan Poirters (1605-1674). It is often presented as a third edition of Ydelheyd des werelds, another emblem book by the same author, first published in 1645, but it differs considerably from Ydelheyd des werelds: it is completely revised, carries a new title and contains different engravings. Ydelheyd des werelds contained engravings by Philip de Mallery, while the present edition is illustrated with emblems by Frederik Bouttats. Both emblem books went through many further editions, each under its own title. Here, each emblem has a motto and a two-line moral verse, and is followed by a lengthy prose text, enlarged in later editions. The emblem on avarice is omitted as usual on p. 74. Poirters was born in Oisterwijk in Dutch Brabant and became a Jesuit and teacher at Malines and Maastricht. He was also a gifted poet, and in the present emblem book he depicts the world as proof of God's glory.With bookplate and inscription. Slightly browned, first few leaves slightly soiled, and some small marginal wormholes. Binding worn along the extremities, damaged on top of spine. Otherwise a good copy.

Brouwer, one of the directors of the Dutch West India Company, acted as the commander of a fleet of six ships, specially sent to the western coast of South America to activate the trade between the Dutch and the natives. During this voyage, which resulted in the first place in a better knowledge of that coast, Brouwer died at Chiloe and was buried at Valdivia in August 1643. Appended to that journal is the very important account of a charting voyage to Japan. That same year (1643) Maerten Gerritsz. Vries, got "instructions from Governor Van Diemen ... to examine the countries to the north of Japan and to assess their economic and trading potential, particularly with regard to mineral wealth" (Howgego).

After a period of religious discord in Utrecht, Wtenbogaert moved to The Hague, where he became an influential member of the Remonstrant party and its leader after the death of Arminius in 1609. After the arrest in 1618 of influential Remonstants, including Johan van Oldenbarneveldt and Hugo Grotius, Wtenbogaert fled to Antwerp.

Holland - Wijngaerde, Frans van den. (1614 - 1679)
1646. Antwerp, Ian Cnobbaert, 1646. Original Engravings. Plate Size: 32 cm x 25.5 cm. Sheet Size: 34 cm x 29 cm. In very good condition with only minor traces of browning to outer margins. A fascinating collection of six engravings of battle scenes from Famiano Strada's De Thien eerste Boecken der Nederlandtsche Oorloge - a Dutch translation from the original Italian 'De Bello Belgico'. Strada's monumental work covered the epic Eighty Years War(1568–1648), a religiously influenced war of liberation fought by the Seventeen Provinces of the Spanish Netherlands against the forces of the Habsburg Spanish Empire. Preceding and then forming part of the pan-European, Thirty Years Wars, the Dutch War of Independence ended with the Dutch Republic recognized by Spain and the major European powers. The independent Dutch were then to embark upon their remarkable Golden Age of the 17-18th centuries. The series of engraving presented here show some of the major engagements that helped shape the course of the war. They are rich in detail, capturing the rush and horror of the clash of armies in the early modern period - to a degree where one can almost hear and feel the blasts of cannon and muskets, crash of iron, roar of men, and the sound of excited horses leaping from the page. The decorative cartouches accompanying each scene provides explanatory notes on the unfolding dramas. A remarkable group of images. The titles of the scenes - in order of appearance in Famiano's are as follows: ''TGhevecht van Oosterweel Onder de Governante Margarita. Ann.1567'' ''Den Veldtlagh Van Hey … [Click Below for Full Description]

VAVASSEUR, François.
Lutetiae Parisiorum, Apud Sebastianum Cramoisy et Gabrielem Cramoisy, 1646. First edition of this collection of ten speeches by the Jesuit François Vavasseur (1603-1681), according to d'Olivet "le meilleur humaniste de son temps". The Orationes, owing much to his master, the Jesuit theologian Denis Pétau, are collected from his addresses to students at the start of each academic year between 1629 and 1636. In his introduction, Vavasseur contrasts the florid literary excesses of his Jesuit (and other) predecessors with the simplicity of his own approach, writing as far as possible in the first person. The orations themselves connect humanism with the reign of Louis XIII, and closely link their futures; he encourages the young French towards a renovatio litterarum and a rejection of earlier types of eloquence, warning against inflatio verborum, and stylistic eclecticism. Vavasseur was renowned as one of the foremost stylists and humanists of his time, and his reputation extended well beyond French Catholic circles. His writings covered biblical scholarship, the literary and moral virtues of the burlesque style, the composition and structure of epigrams, and the Jansenist controversy.

BROWNE, Thomas
London: Edward Dod, 1646. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary calf, rebacked, corners renewed. Imprimatur leaf repaired on fore-edge, occasional foxing and browning. Presented to the library of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia by Edward Wilson, with the Academy's bookplate on the front paste-down. First edition. In this work the author questions the many long held prejudices and misconceptions which hampered scientific growth. Browne's (1605-82) "vulgar errors," as it was amusingly referred to, is divided into seven books which contain his numerous observations and experiments in physics, comparative anatomy and biology. The work has become a literary classic and includes the first appearance in English of the term "electricity" (pages 51 and 79).

CARRACCI, Annibale
1646. Mm. 340x245 (mm. 270x165 battuta del rame). Tutte le stampe sono state rifilate entro la battuta del rame e poi rimarginate in epoca posteriore, ma non prima della fine del XVIII secolo. Alcune tavole presentano delle fioriture, per lo più marginali. Delle 36 tavole qui offerte 30 sono tratte da una delle prime due edizioni della serie, entrambe stampate a Roma nel 1646 (la prima da Ludovico Grignani); le restanti 6 sono invece tratte o dalla terza o dalla quarta edizione che apparvero presso Gregorio Roisecco nel 1740 e nel 1776. La serie completa include 80 tavole. Questa celebre suite che raffigura artigiani di strada, venditori ambulanti ed altri personaggi che s'incontravano per le vie di Bologna, fu realizzata da Annibale Carracci sul finire del Cinquecento. Diversi anni dopo la sua morte i disegni furono incisi in rame da Simon Guillain, un artista francese allievo dell'Algardi, e furono stampati a Roma nel 1646 in due diverse edizioni. Le incisioni vennero poi ristampate in terza e in quarta tiratura nel 1740 e nel 1776 dal Roisecco; queste due tirature più tarde si distinguono dalle due precedenti per la nuova numerazione dei rami e l'aggiunta dei nomi dei mestieri (cfr. A. Marabottini, a cura di, Le arti di Bologna di Annibale Carracci, Roma, 1966).

Ovalle, Alonso de
1646. Rome. Francesco Cavalli. Folio, (253 mm x 182 mm). 4 ff., 378 pp., 1 ff., 18 woodcuts in text on 9 leaves, 12 full-page plates, 6 [maps], folding map. Elegant 19th century burgundy morocco by Petit, two triple gilt fillets to boards forming compartments with corner pieces, raised bands to spine, compartments heavily gilt, lettered, foot of spine starting, but overall fine. Fine copy in 19th century condition, washed and pressed.- First Italian edition printed the same year as the first in Spanish; the simultaneity of both relations makes it impossible to assess to their priority in time. Ovalle provides a description of the geography and natural history of the province of Chile, including Tierra del Fuego, and describes the native populations who inhabited the region. In particular, this work is a highly important source for the study of the Araucanian Indians, as it deals at length with their social structure, political organization, diet, and domestic life. Ovalle also discusses the early contact period between the Spanish and Indians, the ensuing conflicts, the Spanish settlement, the advent of Catholic missionaries, proselytization and conversion, the role of the Society of Jesus, miracles and apparitions of the Virgin, and numerous other topics. Overall, it is one of the most primary and richest sources of information on the physical and cultural reality of the country, and provides a remarkable amount of information of the Indian ethnology. Ovalle (1601 – 1651) was a Chilean born historian, educator and Jesuit; he lived in Rome from 1642 to 1650 whe … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was a lucid and clarifying expositor of the discipline of the ancient Church, which led to a certain fame at the end of the 17th century. Because of his involvement with Jansenist and Gallican doctrine Van Espen fled to Maastricht and his Jus ecclesiasticum universum was put on the Index in 1704. After his death all his works would be deemed heretical. Volume one lacking half-title, some occasional spots and slightly rubbed along the extremities, otherwise in very good condition.l Dekkers, Bibl. Belg. juridica, p. 52, no. 16.
