Large decorative title cartouche and scale: Royal crests. Bright original colour; clean; slight over inking of plate to upper corners. Very good. Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C. ( United East India Company)in 1633 he died in 1638. leaving the company to his sons Joan and Cornelius Of Cornelius little is know; his name appearing on in the prefaces of books and atlases only until c1645. Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635. (preface dated 10-3-1634) two volumes. The final edition comprising again two volumes with 109 & 99 maps respectively with German text also published 1635; an edition with Dutch text, (preface dated 22-4-1635) 104 & 103 maps; French text( preface dated 1-7-1635) 105 & 103 maps; and with Latin text (preface dated "ipsis Aprillis")105 & 102 maps. In 1640, after Willem's death a Third volume with French text and comprising 58 maps of Italy and 8 of Greece, was published; later the same year an edition was produced with Latin text. Still in 1640, variant editions in both languages were issued with an appendix of 4 maps of the British Isles as a precursor to the Fourth volume, which would be a complete description thereof. In 1645 the Fourth volume, "Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas, Mis en lumiere par Guillaume et Jean Bleau. Quartiesme Partie. " with a dedication to " A la serinissme Princesse Henriette-Marie Reine de la Grande Bretagne, France & Yrlande. " was published; preface dated 1 October 1645. This volume consisted of 58 maps with description of all the British Isles. The "Atlas Novus" was eventually extended to six volumes with the addition of a fifth volume, Scotland in 1654 and the following year a sixth the "Atlas Sinensis"of Martini. Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time. Blaeu eventually updated and extended the "Theatrum" producing the "Atlas Major" in various formats from 9-12 volumes Koeman1, Bl 45A. [339. ] British Isles Monmouthshire

        Christ Mighty in Himself & Members: revealed in some short Expressions by way of Catechisme. Wherein is demonstrated, that according to the Scripture (sence & phrase) and the experience of them that do beleeve, the saving and joyful knowledge of God & man, (and althings [sic] else that relate to either) is alone in the spirit, by Jesus Christ. To which is added (occasionally) a hint of the nature of the kingdome of God (as it is even now to faith.).

      Printed by J.M. for G. Calvert 1646 - FIRST EDITION, title within border of typographical ornaments, with an engraved frontispiece, a bit browned or soiled in places, pp. [2, including frontispiece], 240, 12mo, original calf, spine mostly defective due to insect damage, likewise the adjacent part of lower cover, worn, 18th-century engraved armorial bookplate inside front cover, sound A curious and rare little book. Bacon was a chaplain in the family of William Fiennes, first Viscount Saye and Sele (1582–1662) - Old Subtlety, as he was known - and the book is dedicated to the Viscountess. ESTC states ‘With an engraved title page (A2) and initial blank leaf’, but in fact the first leaf has on the verso ‘The mind of the Frontispiece.’ The work is strongly anti-Catholic, but in-fighting among Protestants is censored too, and its slightly odd phraseology is adumbrated in the long title.

        Ramillete de plantas. Compuesto por el P. Fr. Esteuan de Villa, monge de San Benito.

      Pedro Gomez de Valdivieso,, Burgos: 1646 - 2 hojas, 148 folios, 2 hojas. Pergamino moderno. Ejemplar lavado. Palau 366189. Alden 646/151. Pritzel 9770. Colmeiro, La Botánica y los botánicos de la península hispano-lusitana, página 158. Mar Rey Bueno, De exámenes, ramilletes y simples incógnitos: la obra farmacéutica de fray Esteban Villa en la Biblioteca Histórica Marqués de Valdecilla. Miguel López Pérez y Mar Rey Bueno, Aguas destiladas y aguas alquímicas en la España moderna, Azogue, 5, 2002-2007. Segunda edición, la primera apareció en 1637.Ésta es la obra más importante del monje benedictino Esteban de Villa, Burgalés de origen. Dedicó gran parte de su vida a la farmacia, tanto la práctica diaria entre morteros y alambiques -fue Regente de la botica del Hospital de San Juan de Burgos- como la disertación teórica a través de las cinco obras que publicó. Fue uno de los farmacéuticos mas instruídos de su época e hizo una contribución significativa al desarrollo y renovación de la terapéutica española del siglo xvii. El objeto de Villa "fue distinguir bien las plantas usadas en Medicina, para evitar las equivocaciones que, segun aparece en el prólogo, resultaban de la ignorancia de los boticarios, poco ejercitados en el conocimiento de las plantas." (Colmeiro). Por su condición dentro de la Iglesia y su aceptación de la astrología, se ha considerado que representa la conjunción de ésta con la ortodoxia religiosa; Villa acepta la influencia de los astros sobre la vida vegetal y recomienda tener aquéllos en cuenta para fijar el momento más oportuno para la recolección de las plantas. Otra nota a destacar es su defensa de los medicamentos químicos, que se convierte en ataque a los médicos que no se atreven a prescribirlos.La obra está dividida en tres partes, la primera trata de las plantas en general, su sexualidad, la influencia de los astros y las partes útiles en medicina. La segunda parte consta de 45 capítulos dedicados a otras tantas plantas y aclarar las dudas que pudieran aparecen en el uso de determinados simples; y la tercera, escrita a modo de recetario de todos los compuestos usuales de la época, con las aclaraciones más necesarias.

        The Booke Called, The Mirrour of Justices: Made by Andrew Horne

      1646. Horne, Andrew [d.1328]. H[ughes], W[illiam], Translator. [Fitzherbert, Anthony (1470-1538)]. The Booke Called, The Mirrour of Justices: Made by Andrew Horne. With the Book, Called, The Diversity of Courts, And Their Jurisdictions. Both Translated Out of the Old French into the English Tongue. London: Matthew Walbancke, 1646. [xxxii], 288, 287-325, [9] pp. First leaf blank. Octavo (5-1/4" x 3-1/4"). Recent period-style calf, blind fillets to boards, blind fillets and gilt title to spine, endpapers renewed. Woodcut head and tail-pieces. Moderate toning, light foxing in places. Early owner annotations and signature (of Jacobi Bremridge) to front endleaves, small tear to title page mended with archival tape. An appealing copy. * First edition in English and the second edition overall. Written about 1290, The Mirrour of Justices became an authority in the latter part of the sixteenth century when English lawyers began to look to Glanville, Bracton, and Britton as guides to put the common law into a more logical arrangement. It was not a reliable source, however. As Maitland observed, it is "the work of one profoundly dissatisfied with the administration of the law by the king's judges. As against this he appeals to myths and legends about the law of King Alfred's day and the like, some of which myths and legends were perhaps traditional, while others were deliberately concocted. Intelligently read it is very instructive; but the intelligent reader will often infer that the law is exactly the opposite of what the writer represents it to be." Mirrour was first published in Law-French in 1642. The Diversity of Courts is by Fitzherbert. A note of the front free endpaper says: "Note in going over the Mirror Justices in French I cursorily compar'd the French with the English & wherever there appear'd any material error in either of 'em I corrected it in the margin."

        Map of New Guinea

      Amsterdam,: Jansson,, 1646.. Engraved map, 185 x 435 mm.; with central fold, in fine condition 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 (see catalogue number 75).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.

        Mercurius Rusticus: or, The Countries Complaint of the barbarous Out-rages Committed by the Sectaries of the late flourishing Kingdome. Together with a briefe Chronologie of the Battails, Sieges, Conflicts, and other most remarkable passages from the beginning of this unnaturall Warre to the 25. of March, 1646

      1646 An exceedingly rare contemporary account of the English Civil War seen from the Royalist side. Bruno Ryves (1596-1677) acted as author/editor for what was a Royalist 'news book' known as Mercurius Rusticus and printed in parts - starting in August 1642. One source has Ryves as King Charles I's chaplain. This copy contains 18 parts which focus on 1642 and 1643 with numerous accounts of the treatment of royalist supporters by the opposing parliamentary forces. It contains intimate details of the betrayals and heroism that attend civil wars. It is possible that this volume is incomplete because the 'brief chronologie' mentionned in the title is not present - but we can find no other copies of this work to confirm this. In half leather binding - with decorative spine with gilt titles and marbled boards. The binding is rubbed but sound. The endpapers have been replaced at some point recently. With contents page which has had a paper repair and the author's name written in, in ink and crossed out ink signature to reverse; 'the Preface'; note that 'in the Catalogue of persons slaine, these under-written were forgotten to be inserted on the Kings side, in their due place.

        La perspective du Pont Neve de Paris.

      Incisione in rame all?acquaforte, 1646 ca., b/n, cm 36 x 68,6 (alla lastra), firmata e datata in lastra, in bs. al centro: ?Ste. Della Bella Florentinus In. e Fe. et D. D. 1646. Cum Privielegio Regis?. Prova nel secondo stato su quattro, impressa su carta databile alla metà del XVII secolo (al più tardi tra la fine del XVII e l?inizio del XVIII secolo). Il primo stato, raro secondo il De Vesme, non ha con certezza il gallo sul campanile della chiesa sullo sfondo, alla metà del margine destro, che invece qui compare (per quanto con tentativo di abrasione, forse per far passsare l'esemplare per un primo stato - si considera come terzo stato quello impresso su carta databile tra la fine del XVIII e l?inizio del XIX secolo; come quarto stato quello impresso su carta databile nella seconda metà del XIX secolo). Ben riconoscibile il Pont ? Neuf con la statua di Enrico IV, sullo sfondo le torri di Notre Dame. Diciotto titoli di legenda divisi in due gruppi di nove. Filigrana con stemma e corona, sulla destra del verso del foglio. Con un buon margine tutt?intorno, oltre l?impronta del rame. Alcuni punti di ossidazione con difetti e abrasioni del foglio sono presenti nell'inciso e soprattutto ai margini bianchi, peraltro esemplare in margini e in buona impressione.

        Historica relatione del Regno di Cile, e delle Missionim e ministerio che esecita in quelle la Compagnia di Giesu

      One of the most important early histories of Chile. 1646. Rome. Francesco Cavalli. In 4to (262 mm x 182 mm). 4 ff. + 378 + 1 ff. + 12 [plates] + 6 [plates] + folding map. Elegant 19th century red morocco, by Riviere, boards with gilt fillet, spine with raised bands, tooled and lettered in gilt; professionally restored, minor soiling. An excellent copy, carefully cleaned and pressed, title restored at gutter, very attractive, splendid tall copy. 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 where he had his work published. Complementing Ovalle's history is a wealth of visual images, with renderings of natives, architecture and city life. In the text are fourteen engravings showing Indian customs, Catholic religious imagery, and a map of the city of Santiago. The woodcuts illustrate Jesuit establishments throughout Chile, a map of the Chiloe archipelago, and unusual bird's-eye woodcut views of harbours along the coast. The engraved map, "Tabula Geographica Regni Chile," shows the entire region discussed in the book and is considered one of the most relevant cartographic productions on Chile in the 17th century; it is, additionally, quite a beautiful map. The importance of the text, combined with the illustrations, make this volume one of great appeal and historical interest. European Americana, 646/113. JCB (3), II, 346. Sabin, 57971.

First edition: Inspired by Otto van Veen's Emblemata Horatiana, these visual representations of edifying precepts from Horace were engraved by Pierre Daret for the purpose of assisting the Queen Mother and Cardinal Mazarin with the education of the then eight-year-old King Louis XIV. Each moral is illustrated with a large scene bearing a caption in French verse; the facing page of each bears explication in French and original quotations in Latin; the array are presented in two parts, each with a separate engraved title-page.

Pages age-toned with scattered spotting and staining; waterstaining variously along a good many leaves' inner portions, sometimes with waterstaining to lower and outer portions also. Folio 60 lacking. One leaf with stray inked lines in lower portion, touching one letter, with one line extending into image. Several leaves with repairs, most generally not touching text or image; one with remaining signs of tear extending into text without loss; one with tear extending into image, upper portion repaired, small area of loss within image; one with repair to tear just touching one letter. Final two leaves creased and stained, with more significant repairs, one tape repair covering upper left portion of image. => Despite wear and accidents, impressive and attractive.

      [England]. Aug. 20, 1646.. [1]p. 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.

It is signed by Robert Rich ("Warwicke"), Dudley North, John Rolle, John Trevor, 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.

        "Carte particolare del'Isola di Cuba e di Jamaica con il Capo della Floride e l'Isole Intorno"From: Dell' Arcano del Mare

      Florence, 1646. AN IMPORTANT MAP OF THE WEST INDIES FROM THE FIRST ENGLISH SEA ATLAS THE FIRST TO USE THE MERCATOR PROJECTION THROUGHOUT Framed size: 40" x 29" Paper size: 30 1/4" x 19 1/2" Although Dell' Arcano del Mare was published in Italy, it is considered the first printed English nautical atlas, and Dudley's monumental work was the only exception to the total dominance of sea atlas production by the Dutch for nearly a century. Arguably the most sumptuous marine atlas ever produced, it contained no less than 146 sea charts, and dozens of illustrations and working diagrams. It was superior to any previous work in that the charts illustrated the whole world, the first time any outside of Europe had been included. Dell' Arcano del Mare was also the first atlas to show the prevailing winds, currents and magnetic deviation. One of the great marine atlases of all time, the work was magnificently engraved, an encyclopedia of 17th-century knowledge regarding the seas. The distinctive and stately calligraphic style of this map, which shows the Atlantic coast of North America from Labrador down to the present-day southeastern United States, is a hallmark of Dudley's elegant charts. One of the first highly accurate sea charts to focus on this vast area, this is an important map from an extremely significant atlas. . Book.

        Corona gothica, Castellana, Y Austriaca.

      Politcamente ilustrada. Parte primera. Dedicada al principe de las Espanas nuestro senor. Munster [Amsterdam], Juan Jansonio, 1646. 4:o. (20),+ 514 s. Lättare lager- och småfläckar, en fuktfläck sid. 59-60 och fläckar sid. 446-447 och 467-468. Kraftigare fuktrand från sid. 473 och framåt. Nött samtida skinnband, guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind, pärmarna med förgyllda dubbla ramlinjer, röda stänsksnitt. Ryggen litet trasig upptill. Äldre raderad namnteckning på försättsbladet. Ur Christian H. Braads bibliotek, med hans namnteckning, daterad Norrköping 23 april 1746, och hans notering på försättsbladet att han fått den av Harald Urlander i Norrköping. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Warmholtz 1376. Carlander II, 597f & III, 568ff. Första upplagan, tryckt av Johannes Jansonius i Amsterdam. Denna första del av planerade tre var allt som utkom, p.g.a. författarens död. En ny upplaga trycktes i Antwerpen 1658 och då utkom alla tre delarna. Faxardos historik över goterna som börjar med Alarik blev väl mottagen i Sverige och Sparwenfeld översatte den till svenska redan 1699, varav några ark hann tryckas innan arbetet avbröts. Warmholtz nämner att den svenska utgåvan skulle förses med spanska kungarnas porträtt som graverats i Rom. Här blandar Warmholtz dock troligen ihop det med de av Truls Arwidssons graverade plåtarna till en planerad svensk utgåva av Tesaurus bok om göternas och langobardernas historia (se Klemming En antecknares samlingar s. 3). Den spanske politikern och filosofen Don Diego Saavedra Faxardo (1584-1648) var bl.a. spanskt kungligt råd vid fredförhandlingarna i Münster. Hans mest kända bok är kanske emblemboken och furstespegeln "Idea de un Principe Politico Christiano". Christopher Henrik Braad (1728-81) var en framstående litterär samlare med ett stort bibliotek i historia och antikviteterna. Han skriver i kommentaren på försättsbladet att han fått denna fina och sällsynta bok av Dragsdisponenten i Norrköping Harald Urlander. Urlander, som blev disponent på Drags (Norrköpings yllefabriksaktiebolag) 1736 efter Petter Ehrenspetz, är känd för att han tvingade kvinnorna på Spinnhuset i Norrköping att arbeta där. 1748 gick han dock i konkurs
