        [MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT, SIGNED BY THE EARL OF WARWICKE AND FOUR OTHERS, ADDRESSED TO THE COMMISSIONERS OF THE ROYAL NAVY]

      [England], 1646. Folio. Old fold lines. Some light soiling and wear. Very good. Manuscript document signed by Robert Rich, the second Earl of Warwick, who was commander of the British Navy and a promoter of the American colonies. In this memorandum, addressed to the Commissioners of His Majesty's Navy, the Committee of Lords and Commons for the Admiralty and Cinque Ports recommends that one John Coxe be made gunner on the ship the John. It is signed by Robert Rich ("Warwicke"), Dudley North, John Rolle, John Trevor, and Alexander Berne. Robert Rich (1587-1658) was an important English political figure in the 17th century. Involved in Parliament, he also held command of the Royal Navy and was involved in several colonial American ventures. After failing to persuade the original Puritan "pilgrims" to settle in Guiana, Rich, as a member of the Council for New England, secured for John Peirce the patent on which the Plymouth colony existed for the first eight years. He likewise signed the second patent for William Bradford in 1630 and was instrumental in the patent for the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He was also involved in privateering and several settlement schemes along the Central American coast and in the West Indies. His signature is rare.

        Observations, questions et responses sur aucuns articles de la coustume d'Anjou

      par Pierre Avril 1646 - - par Pierre Avril, à Angers 1646, in Folio (23x35cm), (12) 495pp. (1) ; 61pp., relié. - Edition originale, rare, imprimée à Angers. Page de titre en rouge et noir, vignette de titre allégorique par Sturhelt. Beau portrait de l'auteur en frontispice. Reliure de l'époque en plein vélin. Dos à six nerfs, titre à la plume dans le premier caisson. Filet simple à froid en encadrement des plats. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Nombreux ex-dono à la plumes sur le premier contreplat, la première garde, la page de titre. Quelques galeries marginales de vers, sinon bel exemplaire à toutes marges. Manque l'index de 24 pages in fine qui n'a jamais été relié dans ce volume. Gabriel Du Pineau fut maire d'Angers et capitaine général de cette ville en 1632, nommé par Henri IV ; humaniste et lettré, juriste apprécié et conseiller de Marie de Médicis qui séjourna 20 mois à Angers, il venait de mettre la dernière main à son ouvrage lorsque la mort l'enleva en 1644. L'ouvrage contient des nouvelles questions importantes sur la coutume d'Anjou, avec des dissertations sur plusieurs articles de cette coutume, que l'auteur compare avec d'autres coutumes semblables dans le royaume. L'ouvrage fut très apprécié et applaudi dans le milieu judiciaire. Suivant les voeux du défunt, on édita son commentaire écrit en latin sur la coutume d'Anjou à part de ses observations, ce qui fut exécuté en 1681, dans une traduction française : Coutumes du pays et duché d'Anjou.

        Map of New Guinea

      Amsterdam: Jansson, 1646. Engraved map, 185 x 435 mm.; with central fold, in fine condition and mounted. Important early map of the Pacific with insets of the Le Maire Strait and New Guinea from Commelin's compendium of Dutch voyages, Begin Ende Voortgangh. This map comes from the chapter which describes Spilbergen's second voyage to the Moluccas via the Strait of Magellan and the narrative of Le Maire and Schouten's voyage of 1615-1617 to the Australian regions. The momentous Pacific crossing of Le Maire and Schouten was 'the last expedition of the seventeenth century to search for Terra Australis from the east...' (Schilder).The larger inset shows Le Maire's discoveries along the northern coast of New Guinea, including the detailed voyage track. Of particular interest is the westernmost island depicted, which clearly shows Gilolo. Gilolo or Jailolo, which is situated on Halmahera - the largest island of the Moluccas - was the original home of Giolo, Dampier's "Painted Prince". Giolo and his mother had been captured and sold as slaves at Mindanao to Moody, an English trader. Dampier purchased a half-interest in Giolo, during his trading voyage of 1690 (described in New Voyage round the World, 1697) and returned with him to London.

        Pseudodoxia Epidemica: or, Enquiries into Very many received Tenents, And commonly presumed Truths

      London: Printed by T.H. for Edward Dod, 1646. First edition. [xx], 386, [2] pp. 4to. 18th-century full calf, black morocco spine label. Joints cracked, covers worn, a few small tears to pages at margins, with larger piece torn from pp. 255-6 fore-edge margin, contemporary transcription of 17th century popular verse on rear blank, later marginalia in pencil sporadically throughout. First edition. [xx], 386, [2] pp. 4to. The first edition of Browne's Pseudodoxia Epidemica, commonly referred to as Vulgar Errors. Contains the most unusual collection of "tid-bits" and commonly held errors, discussing superstitions (that a salamander is able to live in flames; that hares are each of both sex; and of basilisks and griffins), religious errors (navels on Adam and Eve; that the Tower of Babel was erected against a second flood; and that the earth was slenderly peopled before the Flood), medical errors (the custom of blessing after a sneeze; that drowned men will float on the ninth day) and chapters on Pygmies and Gypsies. "Hydriotaphia," Browne's treatise examining various funereal practices in Britain, is often referred to as his masterpiece of rhetoric. "Religio medici having made [Browne] famous for piety and wit, Pseudodoxia now earned his reputation as scholar and naturalist. In this, his most substantial work, almost an encyclopaedia of seventeenth-century misconceptions and new knowledge, Browne took up numerous false beliefs" (ODNB). Keynes 73; ESTC R1093

        Carte Generalle de l'Empire du Turc

      Paris: Pierre Mariette, 1646. unbound. Map. Engraving with original outline color. Image measures 15.75" x 20". Sheet measures 17" x 22.75". Map of the Turkish Empire centered on Arabia covering from the Caspian Sea to the horn of Africa. Fine detail throughout with cities, mountains, rivers and forests rendered. Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) is considered the founder of the French school of cartography. In reaction to the prevailing trend of Dutch lavishness, Sanson favored minimal details, focusing rather on accurate cartography than ornament. Pierre Mariette, the elder, was a bookseller, printseller and publisher who worked closely with Sanson. Hand colored title cartouche. Map was framed at one time with the outer margins showing stains from verso tape residue, still a lovely version of this hard-to-find map.

        Opera observationum et curationum medico-chirurgicarum quae extant omnia.[bound and issued with:] SEVERINO, Marco Aurelio. De efficaci medicina lib. III.

      Frankfurt, Johann Beyer, 1646 - 2 vols in one, folio (330 x 208 mm), pp [xxiv including frontispiece] 1044 [20], with engraved frontispiece, one engraved plate, and numerous engraved and woodcut illustrations in text; [xvi including frontispiece] 297 [15], with engraved frontispiece and numerous woodcut illustrations in text; outer margin of first title-page a little frayed, a fine copy in contemporary German yapped vellum. £6000First editions, first issues, of the collected works of Fabri von Hilden, 'the father of German surgery' (Garrison and Morton), and of Severino's De efficaci medicina.Fabri was 'a bold and skilful operator and inventor of many new instruments. Fabry was the first to recommend amputation above the diseased part, and is said to have been the first to amputate the thigh. In shutting off the circulation before amputation, he improvised a kind of tourniquet by means of a ligature tightened by a stick of wood. He showed that head injuries may cause insanity, extracted an iron splinter from the eye with a magnet, explored the auditory canal with a speculum of his invention, and described the first field-chest of drugs for army use' (Garrison, A history of medicine pp 275-6). Fabri also was the first to classify burns.'This large folio edition of his collected works includes his separately published monographs on dysentery, burns, lithotomy, and anatomy. Congenital malformations, skull fractures, carcinoma of the eye and penis, hydrocele, gangrene, mineral water baths, the concept of removing some healthy tissue along with the necrotic tissue in amputation, and a special operation for hernia are among the many topics discussed in his writings. Among the numerous instruments and appliances he designed were a bullet extractor, a tourniquet for controlling hemorrhage, a urinal for ambulatory use, and a field-chest of drugs and instruments for use by the army.'Also included with Fabricius' Opera is Marco Aurelio Severino's De efficaci medicinae. Severino became well known as a teacher and surgeon. He employed trephination, operated upon harelip, epulis, empyema, and is said to have been the first to perform a tracheotomy to relieve suffocation in diphtheria. Among his works is this important contribution in which he discusses surgical anatomy, phlebotomy, paracentesis, and cautery' (Heirs of Hippocrates 396).Severino was the first surgeon to make a resection of the wrist, and pioneered the use of snow and ice in surgical anaesthesia. He 'repeatedly practised tracheotomy during the Naples epidemic of diphtheria ' (Castiglioni).Many of the illustrations are of surgical instruments and their use, and include many invented or improved upon by Fabri.The second issue had the introduction extended and had a general title describing both works (see Parkinson and Lumb 798).Garrison and Morton 60.1; Heirs of Hippocrates 396; Krivatsy 3842 and 11053; Waller 2908 and 8888

      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.

        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.

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]

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]
