        La Doctrine des moeurs. Tirée de la philosophie des stoïques, représentée en cent tableaux, et expliquée en cent discours pour l'instruction de la jeunesse

      Paris, Pierre Daret 1646 - Folio, frontispiece, engraved and printed titles, prelims including 2 fine bandeaux, an engraved leaf of a poem to the king (with vignette), a portrait of Gomberville, 105 leaves of emblems with explanation, quotations from Horace, and French verses, the frontispiece frayed (outside the platemark, with two ink stains in the blank portion of the sky, and mounted, MS bibliographical note on engraved title, faint watermark in the ample lower margins of part of the book, contemporary calf, worn, rebacked with morocco. First edition, commissioned by Mazarin for the schoolroom of the young Louis XIV. The illustrations, finely engraved by Pierre Daret, are essentially reversed copies of those in the Emblemata Horatiana of Otto van Veen (1607 or 1612). This suite of pictures was very widespread in the 17th and 18th centuries, under many titles,in many languages, in formats large and small, but this is the earliest imitation in any form, and (with perhaps the coloured Italian version of 1777) the finest.

        Begin Ende Voortgangh, van de Vereenighde Nederlantsche Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie. Vervatende de voornaemste Reysen, by de Inwoonderen der selver Provincien derwaerts gedaen

      Amsterdam: [Joannes Janssonius], 1646. Twenty-one parts in two volumes, oblong quarto (245 x 188 mm.); with 195 full page and 4 double page or folded plates, 25 full page and 6 double page or folded maps; a few repairs on edges of plates, one plate trimmed close at right-hand margin losing plate number and 20 mm. of edge detail, repair to blank margin of first title-page; a fine and solid set in overlapping modern vellum. The great compendium of early VOC voyages. A handsome set of this important work of Dutch East India Company voyages and discoveries, which is considered "the most important Dutch collection of travel literature published during the seventeenth century" (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe). The whole work is generously illustrated with beautiful maps and plates in the finest tradition of Dutch book illustration.Many of the voyage accounts included are in fact published here for the first time, including the second voyage of van Neck (1600-1604), and both voyages of van der Hagen (1599-1601; 1603-1606). An important inclusion is an account of the first voyage of van Neck and van Warwijck (1598-1600), now most famous as being the first voyage of Willem Jansz, who would make the first recorded landfall on the Australian mainland in 1605.In fact Jansz and the small Dutch ship the Duyfken, both separately and together, feature in four of the 21 component narratives that make up the book: these references to the slightly chronicled ship represent the only original printed sources for the sketchy history that we have of the earliest discoveries made in the Australian continent. Several images of the Dutch fleets described in the narratives include depictions of the comparatively slight jacht, crewed by just twenty men or so and a fraction of the size of the great storeships and battleships that she accompanied as a fast scout.This collection is an essential source for the history of early Pacific exploration as well as for the development of the East Indies. The enormous work - it contains more than 1600 pages of text - was compiled by Isaac Commelin and published in Amsterdam by Jansson, one of the leading Amsterdam publishers who specialised in navigational and cartographical material. It represents the raw material for any research on Dutch exploration of trading routes, and on the history of the Dutch voyages to the East Indies, and therefore by extension to the voyages probing towards Australia. Complete sets are scarce on the market and this first edition is rare, especially in decent condition. There are two issues of the first edition differing only in the date on the title-pages: 1645 or 1646, the latter being much the more usual and applying to all five copies located by Trove, at the National Library, the State Libraries of NSW and Victoria, and the Universities of Monash and Western Australia.C.R. Boxer has speculated (in his Introduction to a modern facsimile of the book) that Commelin must have obtained his material from a person either belonging to or closely connected with the VOC, and that some of it may have come to him clandestinely. In general terms the Dutch, like other nations still seeking profitable discoveries, tended to conceal rather than publish their voyages. As Boxer also points out, about half of the material is completely new in this first edition, while some of the other accounts appear in Dutch for the first time, having been previously printed in some other language.Several later editions followed and many of the individual narratives were picked up by other publishers to appear in subsequent anthologies. The scope of the book is tremendous, and clearly overwhelmed English translators and publishers, who could manage only a hugely abbreviated summary in English, published as a single octavo volume.A full list of the voyages is given below as they appear in the two volumes. Those marked with an asterisk are published for the first time in this collection.ContentsVolume I: Engraved title, title, 11 leaves, (introduction by Commelin).1.

An excellent and very fresh copy , in original vellum bound. In Ars magna lucis et umbrae Kircher discusses the sources of light and shadow.

Kircher also treats phenomena related to light, such as optical illusions, color and refraction, projection and distortion, comets, eclipses, and instruments that use light, such as sundials and mirrors. He theorizes about the type of mirror supposed to have been used by Archimedes to set Roman ships afire, drawing from notes of his own experiments performed in the harbor of Syracuse. The work includes one of the first treatises on phosphorous and fireflies. Here Kircher also published his depictions of Saturn and Jupiter as he saw them through a telescope in Bologna in 1643 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Begin ende Voortgangh, van de Vereenighde Nederlantsche Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie

      Amsterdam: [Jan Janssonius], 1646. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 2 vols in oblong 4to [25 x 18.5 cm]. vol. 1: (15) ff plus map; 71 pp plus 31 numbered plates; 112 pp, plus 49 numbered plates (numbered 1-45) - plate 4 with old repair touching engraved surface; 56 pp plus 26 numbered plates; 31 pp plus 8 numbered plates; 56 pp plus 25 plates - plate 8 cropped at outer margin; 20 pp; 51 pp plus 4 plates; 31 pp; 27 pp; 62 pp plus 10 plates - 2 large plates repaired at folds; 88 pp plus 6 plates; (5) ff of index. vol. 2: (2) ff; 91 pp plus 13 plates; 191 pp plus 11 plates; 48 pp; 214 pp plus 1 blank and 1 plates; 110 pp plus 12 plates; (1) ff, 112 pp; 118 pp plus 25 plates / maps; 79 pp plus 5 plates; 94 pp plus 3 plates; 217 pp; (1), (8) ff of index. With a total of 230 engraved plates and maps (some folding); a handful of plates lightly waterstained; several others slightly cropped by binder; a few with minor repairs, normally at folds. Bound in contemporary calf, rebacked with original gilt tooling and faded gilt titles on spines; mottled edges, some slight wear at extremities. Overall, handsome and well-preserved. A rare compendium presenting 21 first-hand accounts of the Dutch East India Company's voyages of exploration and trade to the Far East, many selections previously unpublished or appearing here for the first time in Dutch, lavishly illustrated with 230 engraved maps, views, and botanical, zoological and ethnographic depictions documenting the formative journeys of the Republic's "Golden Century." "At the height of its power and influence [.] the VOC - acronym for the United Netherlands East India Company - was the greatest commercial concern in the world" (J. Landwehr, p. xi). With some 20,000 employees, it was the world's first multinational corporation and the first corporation to issue stock. The East India Company's appetite for spices, textiles, metals, coffee, tea, tobacco, etc., spurred missions of discovery from the Cape of Good Hope to Japan, and its reorganization of military and mercantile power in Asia forever altered relations in that region. In 1644-46 Isaac Commelin and his publisher, Jan Janssonius, issued the two-volume Origin and Progress of the United Netherlands Chartered East-India Company (Begin ende Voortgangh) as a continuation of the venerable tradition of edited voyages of discovery made popular by such writers as Theodor de Bry (from 1590), Levinus Hulsius (from 1598), and Samuel Purchas (1625). Commelin's work charts the VOC's precursors of the 1590s, the circumstances of its chartering in 1602, and its displacement of Iberian hegemony in the East Indies during the first half of the century; the VOC would go on to enjoy another century of unparalleled success after the publication of this work. ......................... see full description at www.martayanlan.com

        Pseudodoxia Epidemica: Or, Enquiries into very many received tenents, and commonly presumed truths

      London. 1646., 1646. FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo., pp. 386. In contemporary full speckled calf, gilt decoration to spine, marbled end papers. Bookplate. Minute early professional near-invisible repairs to the "Envoi". Boards scuffed, hinges starting, spine and corners repaired, foxing to some leaves, heavier in places. A respectable copy. Sir Thomas Browne delighted in the discussion of fables, and painstakingly applied himself to the discovery of the truth behind them, and the more marvellous the story, the more he enjoyed the investigation of it. His fame for encyclopedic knowledge was firmly established during his lifetime, and his assistance was frequently sought on scientific or antiquarian inquiries. He was one of few men of his era to have read Dante's 'Inferno,' which was also a source of inspiration to him. Although he professed his anxiety to dispel popular superstitions, he believed in astrology, alchemy, witchcraft, and magic, and the Ptolemaic system of astronomy. An unfortunate practical illustration of his credulity occured in 1664, when Amy Duny and Rose Cullender were being tried as witches. Browne declared 'that the fits were natural, but heightened by the devils cooperating with the malice of the witches, at whose instance he did the villainies,' and he cited some recent similar cases in Denmark. It has been suggested that this comment directly led to a conviction of witchcraft for both women. Keynes [73]
