        A Looking-Glasse for Sope-Patentees: or a prospective-glasse, making discovery of a new projects contrived and propounded (by the sope-projectors) to the Parliament, to monopolize the soping-mystery, under pretences of good to the State in the duty of excize.

      London printed in the year 1646 - 4to., title printed within typographical border, 8pp., final page rather soiled else a very good untrimmed copy, now bound in 20th century calf gilt and labelled. First edition. The subject of the tract is expanded and somewhat clarified on p.3:- 'The sope-boylers of London's New-project, or the last sope-patentees, and most ancient projecting monopolizers of the sope-boyling art. Propositions now presented by them to the Honourable House of Commons, for the monopolizing of the sope-boyling art, by authority of Parliament, first proposed, then answered or expounded'. [bound with, but after], A short and true relation concerning the soap-business. Containing the severall patents; proclamations, orders, whereby the Soape-makers of London, and other His Majesties subjects, were damnified, by the Gentlemen that were the patentees for soape at Westminster, with the particular proceedings concerning the same.> London, printed for Nicholas Bourne at the South Entrance of the Royall Exchange, 1641. 4to., 29 + (1)pp., wanting the final blank D4, small repaired defect on lower blank corner of title (nowhere near printed surface), else a very good, crisp, copy entirely uncut. First and only edition. Amex 420. Goldsmiths 724. Kress 603. Wing S.3555. See Scott, The Constitution and Finance of English, Scottish and Irish Joint-Stock Companies to 1720> I, p.219. An interesting and amusing tract on commercial rivalry, monopolistic oppression, consumer fraud and the making of soap, with reference to the Greenland Whale Fishery Company. In 1631, hoping to exploit the soap trade as a source of revenue, Charles I granted a monopoly of soap-manufactures to a Westminster group made up of inexperienced Catholic recusants. The new patent was justified on the basis of invention which allegedly made a better, cheaper white soap without the use of whale oil, which had been the key ingredient in the patent of the dispossessed London soap makers: the latter were now ruthlessly suppressed, brought before the Star Chamber, and even jailed. In this petition the Londoners narrate the extraordinary repressive measures taken against themselves and the general public and expose the fraud of their Westminster rivals, who in fact continued to use whale oil while producing an inferior and more expensive product. 'The economies, as a matter of fact, had not become actual; and the new company, working by its old methods, would be forced, in justice to itself, to recover the Crown-royalty as well as the sums paid to the members of the late society of Soapers. Moreover, when it obtained a monopoly, it was not in human nature for the soap-boilers to abstain from obtaining pecuniary compensation for their past sufferings by surreptitiously advancing prices, in spite of proclamations to the contrary effect. Therefore it follows that the consumer was destined to pay heavily for the disturbance of the trade during the past five years: and until the abolition of monopolies of this character, the price was close upon double what it had been in 1630'.

        Delineatio orarum Peru; cujus Metropolis Lima [with] Fretum Magallanicum in quod Olivier a Noort Generalis navium... hinc et in Mre del Zur novissimo die Februarij An. 1600

      Commelin edition of Van Noort´s maps of Northern and Southern South America; individually rare, together they form one of the rarest and most primitive maps of South America. The maps were published in Commelin's very rare collection of voyages "Begin ende voortgangh van de Vereenighde Nederlantsche Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie"; they show most of South America, with only missing the regions which are today Venezuela and Colombia, the lower portion includes Magellan Strait, Chile and Argentina, a prominent River Plate and a notoriously imaginary river in the Patagonia, the Strait of Magellan is wide and the coast line shows Van Noort's fleet -with the route followed by Van Noort, from his landing in Rio de Janeiro to his journey across Patagonia and the Pacific- before and after crossing it; on both sides, there are compass roses. The north part shows mostly the Brazilian coastline as well as the Pacific coast (North of Chile, Peru and South Colombia), it also shows the fleet and compass roses on both sides. Van Noort (1558 - 1627) was a Dutch sailor and explorer, and the first Dutch to circumnavigate the world; going through Brazil, Argentina, Chili, Peru and several countries in Oceania. In the process, he was able to capture several Spanish ships, although, at the end, of 4, only one ship made it back to Rotterdam. The VOC was formed short after. His account is one of the first Dutch relations on South America. "His ship was the fourth to circumnavigate the world and he was the first Dutch-man to do so. He attempted to enter Guanabara Bay in Rio but was repulsed by the Portuguese" (Borba de Moraes).

        Fasciculus e Iapponicis floribus, suo adhuc madentibus sanguine, compositus a

      P. Antonio Francisco Cardimè Societate Iesv, prouinciæ Iapponiæ ad Urbem procuratore. / Catalogus regularium, et secularium, qui in Iapponiæ regnis ... ab ethnics in odium Christianæ Fidei ... violenta morte sublati sunt. / Mors felicissima quatuor legatorum Lusitanorum et sociorum quos Japponiae imperator occidit in odium Christianae religionis. Romae : typis heredum Corbelletti, 1646. Three parts in one volume, quarto; contemporary vellum; pp [viii], 252; 79; 40; some misnumbering; the first work with 89 copperplate engravings by Pierre Miotte (2 folding, including the detailed map of Japan, 280 x 400 mm, bound in after the title, and one bound in at the rear of the volume); title with Jesuit device; engraved head- and tail-pieces; dedicated to Pope Innocent X; plate 65 with a small hole; leaf Ff with a natural paper flaw; a little worming in the gutter; first editions of the first two works, and the first Latin edition of the third; the three works were usually bound together. António Francisco Cardim (Viana do Alentejo, 1596 - Macau, 1659) was a Portuguese Jesuit priest, missionary and historian who wrote several important texts on the history and activities of the Society of Jesus in China, Japan and other places in the Far East. The most significant of Cardim's works is theFasciculus e Iapponicis floribus. It includes accounts of more than fifty of the Christians martyred in Japanbetween 1597 and 1640. Not only is it well illustrated - there are eighty-eight engravings of martyrdoms - but it also contains a detailed folding map of Japan adapted from that of Bernardino Ginnaro published in 1641. The map is the first European map to indicate Japan's 66 provinces, and it also shows all of the locations relevant to Jesuit activities. The second work, the Catalogus, is a chronological register of Christian martyrs in Japan between 1557 and 1640; and the third work, Mors felicissima, is Cardim's account, originally published in Lisbon in 1643, of the execution of the four Portuguese emissaries at Nagasaki in 1640. Cordier, Japonica, 361; de Backer-Sommervogel, II, 740; Streit, V, pp. 560-61; Azevedo, 590: "Muito rara." An important, extensively illustrated work that is rarely offered for sale.

      Borba de Moraes, p. 614; Boxer, Dutch in Brazil, pp. 294-295; Sabin 55278. First edition of a splendidly illustrated 17th-century account of Brazil and of the East Indies, describing the author's voyages in those regions and describing their topography, flora, fauna, cities, clothing, customs and religion, with a five-page account of his travels in Africa at the end. Part one covers Brazil (including parts of the West Indies) and part two the East Indies. The engraved title covers both parts, including Brazil under the term West Indies. Nieuhof gives his own graphic eye-witness account of the 1646 siege of Recife, and his account of Brazil in the years 1644-1647 "is very valuable indeed, being richly documented from the original sources and reproducing much of the official correspondence between the local Dutch and Portuguese authorities" (Boxer). The double-page plates include four maps, ten views of buildings and other sights in Batavia (now Jakarta, Indonesia), several other town views, five plates showing numerous species of fish, and four of plants. The full-page and half-page engravings show a wide variety of animals and plants, natives of various trades and social standings, showing their clothing (or lack thereof) and activities. With the back of the engraved title-page reinforced, some thumbing throughout in the margins (especially on the opening leaves), and a few occasional stains; a good copy. The spine of the binding somewhat worn (partially restored) and with a modern title-label; otherwise still good.

        Plan de la Forteresse de Portolongone en L'Isle Delbe assiegée le Sic October par les Armées du Roy

      Parigi 1646 - Rara pianta di Porto Azzurro, originariamente appellata Porto Longone, pubblicata nell'opera "Les glorieuses conquestes de Louis le Grand roy de France et de Navarre". La pianta mostra l'assedio francese del 1646, durante la guerra franco-spagnola: la Francia inviò contro Porto Longone un'armata, al comando del duca di Meilleraye e del conte Du Plessis Praslin; 3000 uomini sbarcarono il 27 settembre nell'isola, e subito dopo la presa di Piombino Porto Longone fu attaccato dalle forze di terra e di mare. Non riuscendo utili i tiri delle artiglierie contro i robusti bastioni della fortezza, i Francesi, mediante lavori di scavo e di mina, riuscirono ad aprire una breccia nelle mura, per la quale mossero all'assalto. Dopo accanita resistenza, il 29 ottobre, gli Spagnoli si arresero. Nel riquadro in basso a destra, la cartina dell'intera isola d'Elba e la costa antistante con la città di Piombino. Incisione su rame, in ottime condizioni. Rare plan of Porto Longone, also known as Porto Azzurro, on the Island of Elba. Published in Les Glorieuses Conquestes de Louis le Grand - one of the most important works in the 17th century. Shows the bay and the surrounding area in great detail, with mountains, rivers, cliffs, and woods. The battle plan shows the forts, camps and tents, and sailing war ships. Two extensive keys explain the camp and the fortress. With a small inset map showing the entire island and the near Italian mainland coast with the city of Piombino.

      London: Printed [by Ruth Raworth] for Humphrey Moseley [and other imprints], 1646. FIRST EDITION (with title in upper and lower case letters on title page, and Roman numeral title underlined). Offered here in a fine antique (though not a 17th century-style) binding, these "Golden Fragments" comprise all of the significant works of Suckling (1609-42), a dashing Cavalier, ladies' man, and gambler (he is said to have been the inventor of cribbage). Although he raised a troop to support the king in the First Bishops' War, he was accused of treason in a plot to free the Earl of Stafford, and he apparently committed suicide as a result. Although his poetry is not profound, he writes well-crafted short colloquial stanzas, and as a careless and impudent light lyricist, gaily pursuing women and never letting himself get caught, he is extremely good. In addition to his poems, the present collection contains, among other things, Suckling's letters to important personages as well as three dramatic works. Nearly all of the several portions making up the text were printed for Moseley by one of two women, Susan Islip or Ruth Raworth. Almost all of the items appearing here are printed for the first time. The retrospective binding by the distinguished Riviere firm is skillfully executed in the style of Roger Payne. The panel design and floral sprays on the covers and the dense tooling on the spine compartments are very like those on a binding in the Henry Davis Gift (Foot, Vol. II, 192) executed by Payne ca. 1790. In the manner of late 19th century bibliophiles' copies, the present item seems as if it might have been pressed (and lightly washed?) when its new bindings were put on, probably around 1890. However, there seems to be no significant harm done to the leaves, which still crackle happily when one turns them.. 183 x 113 mm. (7 1/2 x 4 3/8"). 4 p.l. (including frontispiece), 119, [7], 82, 64, [4], 52 pp. FIRST EDITION (with title in upper and lower case letters on title page, and Roman numeral title underlined). FINE CRIMSON STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with concentric gilt-rule frames featuring floral sprays at corners, raised bands, spine very densely gilt in compartments with flowers and leaves radiating from a central circle, all on a stippled ground, turn-ins with gilt rules and floral sprays (like those on the covers), glazed blue endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, decorative woodcut headpieces and initials. Pforzheimer 995; Wither to Prior 827; Wing S-6126B. Faint offsetting from portrait, first few leaves washed (and the remainder of the text perhaps lightly so), small portion at the top of the title page neatly replaced, probably to remove a previous owner's signature, otherwise A FINE COPY, clean and fresh internally, and in a lustrous, virtually unworn binding. Offered here in a fine antique (though not a 17th century-style) binding, these "Golden Fragments" comprise all of the significant works of Suckling (1609-42), a dashing Cavalier, ladies' man, and gambler (he is said to have been the inventor of cribbage).

Although his poetry is not profound, he writes well-crafted short colloquial stanzas, and as a careless and impudent light lyricist, gaily pursuing women and never letting himself get caught, he is extremely good. In addition to his poems, the present collection contains, among other things, Suckling's letters to important personages as well as three dramatic works. Nearly all of the several portions making up the text were printed for Moseley by one of two women, Susan Islip or Ruth Raworth. Almost all of the items appearing here are printed for the first time. The retrospective binding by the distinguished Riviere firm is skillfully executed in the style of Roger Payne. The panel design and floral sprays on the covers and the dense tooling on the spine compartments are very like those on a binding in the Henry Davis Gift (Foot, Vol. II, 192) executed by Payne ca. 1790. In the manner of late 19th century bibliophiles' copies, the present item seems as if it might have been pressed (and lightly washed?) when its new bindings were put on, probably around 1890. However, there seems to be no significant harm done to the leaves, which still crackle happily when one turns them.

      Leiden: Johannes Maire, 1646. 24mo (11,0 x 5,8 cm). (16), 704 pp. Contemporary full overlapping vellum, spine with handwritten title. In this politicological work, Thysius treats the problem of the best government system by a description of different government systems from antiquity, not only Greek and Roman, but also a.o. Assyrian, Persian, Egyptian &c. Of these, the trait " De potestate Principis " is the most extensive one and considered by Thysius the most important, as indicated on the title. The Protestants of the young Dutch Republic were at the time of publication very much interested in descriptions of antique Republican states, that could serve as models for the modern Republican state. Published with only a typographic title page, without an engraved frontispiece and with first leaf blank. Title page with woodcut printer's mark. Two decorated woodcut initials. Nice contemporary handwritten index on last flyleaf. Leaf A7 with small repaired tear, due to fragile paper; corner first flyleaf torn (repaired). Remarkably fresh copy of a rare work.

        Le Arti di Bologna]

      [ - portrait et 80 planches sur [Rome], [c. 1646], in-4, portrait et 80 planches sur cuivre, 1 table manuscrite, demi-basane du XIXe siècle, dos lisse, motifs rocaille en long, tranches marbrées, Superbe et rare suite des 80 gravures des Cris de Bologne d'après Annibale Carrache (1560-1609), exécutées par Simon II Guillain (1618-16. ?), la plupart numérotées dans le cuivre ; plusieurs portent le monogramme "AC" et "SG", quelques-unes les noms complets de l'artiste et du graveur. La numérotation de certaines planches a été effacée dans le cuivre : il doit s'agir d'un remaniement de peu postérieur à la date du premier tirage, 1646. La suite ouvre sur le portrait d'Annibale Carrache en médaillon, à l'avant d'un piédestal portant des allégories des Arts et de la Renommée, ainsi que l'inscription "Annibali Carraccio bonon. aetatis suae ann. XLIX", avec l'adresse de Rome et la date de 1646. Les Arti di Bologna furent édités grâce à Monsignore Giovanni Antonio Massani, détenteur des dessins originaux d'Annibale Carrache, qui offrit à Guillain l'accès à sa collection et qui promut l'édition ; le premier tirage parut sous le titre de Diverse figure al numero di ottanta. intagliate in rame e cavate dagli originali da Simone Giulino Parigino (Roma, 1646) ; outre le feuillet de titre, il contient une préface par Massani ("A tutti coloro") et une table des gravures. La même année fut publié un second tirage, titré Le arti di Bologna originali. pubblicate de Carlant. Fosarelli (Roma, 1646). Masani rapporte les conditions d'exécution des dessins dans la préface : Annibale Carrache aurait saisi sur le vif les marchands ambulants et autres figures des rues de Bologne pendant ses interruptions de travail à la galerie Farnèse et lors de ses séjours dans sa ville natale. Aux 75 Cris, Masani a fait rajouter 5 gravures, les 5 dernières, numérotées 76 à 80 ("Una valente Ruffiana", "Una Spia Famosa", "Una Putta che governa le Galline", "Un putto che urina" et "Il Console de' Levantini"). Les dessins originaux de Carrache ont tous été perdus, exception faite du "Spazza camino", le ramoneur, conservé à la National Gallery d'Édimbourg. Les tirages de 1646 ne doivent pas être confondus avec ceux de 1740, auquel les titres ont été rajoutés en pied du cuivre, ni avec la suite de Giuseppe Maria Mitelli, gravée en 1660. Notons que, dans cet exemplaire, le titre des planches a été restitué ultérieurement à la main, à l'encre, en pied de chacune, avec plusieurs erreurs : le "Regattiero" (friper) est désigné comme étant le "Carriolaro da portar robbe" (Porteur) ; le "Carriolaro" apparait comme étant le "Inchiostro Fino" (marchand d'encre) ; le "Inchiostro Fino" devient le "Molinaro" (menier), qui lui-même est décrit comme étant le "Muratore" (maçon) ; le "Muratore" devient le "Cieco dal rimedio per i calli" (aveugle vendeur de remède), tandis que ledit "Cieco" passe pour le "Regattiero" ; le "Scopettaro" (marchand de balais) est donné pour un "Vende Quadri" (marchand d'images pieuses) ; le "Marroni Allessi" (marrons chauds) pour un "Netta pozzi" (nettoyeur de puits), tandis que le "Spia famosa" (espion fameux) devient le "Marroni Allessi" ; la "Putta che Governa Galline" (jeune fille avec ses poules) le "Scopettaro" et le "Putto che urina"(jeune homme urinant) le "Spia famosa". Une telle inversion des intitulés, qui ont été donnés dans la table "Nomi degli artisti." dès le premier tirage, laisse supposer que la personne à l'origine des annotations ne maîtrisait pas l'italien. Cette même personne a restitué, in fine, une table manuscrite des gravures. Très belles épreuves. Pliure marginale au titre et déchirure sans manque, quelques taches d'encre et rousseurs marginales. Une mouillure très pâle en tête et en marge de l'ensemble de l'ouvrage. Reliure usée mais fonctionnelle. Brunet I, 1597. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all the Incomparable Peeces, Written

      , 1646. 1646. SUCKLING, SIR JOHN. Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all the Incomparable Peeces, Written by Sir John Suckling ... Printed by his owne Copies. London: For Humphrey Moseley, 1646. [6], 119, [7], 82, 64, [4], 52 p. Engraved port. by William Marshall. Contemporary calf, gilt fillet and cornerpieces, red morocco spine label. Portrait and first two leaves with two very tiny holes at the gutter, worm trail in lower margin of first three gatherings, else a very nice copy in a lovely contemporary binding. Bookplate of C. Pearl Chamberlain and book label of Abel Berland. Fine red morocco pull-off case. Accompanied by an A.L.S. of John Suckling (1569- 1627), father of the poet, Goodfathers, 29 July 1625, to an unnamed recipient, seeking information on his election as a burgess in Yarmouth. First edition, first state of the title, with "FRAGMENTA AVREA" in upper case, a period after "Churchyard" in the imprint, and the rule under the date; A3v:16 reads "allowred." Second state of the frontispiece, re- incised with heavier lines around the leaves of the garland and the bulge in the left sleeve. According the Beaurline and Clayton, the plate was most certainly re-incised in the course of printing and is fairly evenly distributed with the various states of the title. Suckling is perhaps best remembered for the fine lyrics in his dramas, including the famous line "Why so pale and wan, fond lover?" (in Aglaura). D'Avenant called Suckling the greatest gallant and gamester of his day. He is also remembered as the inventor of the game of cribbage. L. A. Beaurline and T. Clayton, "Notes on Early Editions of Fragmenta Aurea," Studies in Bibliography 23 (1970), pp. 165-170; Greg III, 1130; Hayward 84; Pforzheimer 996; Wing S-6126.

        Observationes defectus lunaris Grenovici habit

      - for Flamsteed's life: DSB V, pp. 22-26. Three astronomical articles (2 in the form of letters) by England's first Royal Astronomer, John Flamsteed (1646-1719) at the Greenwich Observatory from its establishment in 1675, published in the Philosophical Transactions of the British Royal Society in the years 1683 and 1685. The first article gives observations of a 1682 lunar eclipse by Flamsteed himself, Edmund Halley and a certain Haynes. The second gives Flamsteed's calculations of the eclipses of Jupiter's four moons for the coming year 1686, intended in part as an aid to the determination of longitude. The third gives an engraved dial with four scales around its perimeter, with Flamsteed's description of its use to calculate the positions of Jupiter's moons. Flamsteed's magnum opus, his great star catalogue and charts, appeared posthumously in 1725 and 1729, so his most important publications during his own lifetime were a single book in 1680 and a dozen short astronomical articles in the years 1672 to 1686, three of them present here. The articles and plate have been disbound, but they are otherwise in very good condition, with only some minor spots in the text and a couple tears (one repaired). Three of Flamsteed's rare non-posthumous astronomical publications, with an engraved plate of his calculating dial.
