NECK, Jacob Cornelis van & Wybrand van WARWIJCK.
(Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. With 26 engraved plates. 56 pp. (text set in two columns).Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - The first successful Dutch trading voyage to the East Indies. The fleet sent out from Amsterdam by the successor of the company that financed De Houtman's venture, now called the Old East India Company, was a smashing success. Eight ships commanded by Jacob van Neck and Wybrand van Warwijck left Texel on May 1, 1598. Fifteen month later, on July 17, Van Neck returned from Bantam with four of his ships fully laden with pepper. The rest of the fleet, under Van Warwijck and Jacob van Heemskerck, made other stops on Java and then went to Banda, Amboina, and the Moluccas; here they established the three factories which became the foundation for later Dutch controle of the Moluccan spice trade. Van Heemskerck arrived in Amsterdam with two ships on May 19, 1600; Van Warwijck arrived with the remaining two ships at the end of August, 1600. The major contributions made by this account were full descriptions of Banda, Amboina, and the Moluccas. Appended is a Malay-Javanese-Dutch word list (Lach & Van Kley, Asia in the making of Europe III,1, p.439-440).Landwehr VOC, 250.

John Poley (1603 - 1664) spent twenty years as an academic at Pembroke College, Oxford, but aspired to a position at Court. Edward Leigh (1603 - 1671) was educated at Magdalen Hall, Oxford, and later at the Middle Temple. He married Elizabeth Talbot (d. 1707), and their son was the poet Richard Leigh. "Leigh's upbringing was notable for its fervent puritanism, which owed much to his stepmother, Ruth Scudamore, and to his university tutor, William Pemble. By the late 1630s Leigh and his wife were members of the godly circle based at Banbury in Oxfordshire.... Undoubtedly his most notable work was his Critica sacra, a philological study of the Hebrew and Greek words of the Old and New testaments, initially published in two separate editions in 1639 and 1642. This lexicon became a standard work of reference, winning the plaudits of scholars like William Gouge and Thomas Fuller, earning him the respect of James Ussher, and being translated into several foreign languages.... While not an original thinker, he impressed contemporary writers not only for the 'industry' of his literary output, but also for its s … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOUTMAN, Cornelis de.
(Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern sprinkled boards. With 49 engraved plates. 112 pp. (text set in two columns).Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - A group of Amsterdam merchants was responsible for the venture of the first Dutch voyage to the East in 1595. The four small ships sailed via the Cape of Good Hope to Bantam, a large trading centre on the west coast of Java. Three of the four ships finally returned to Amsterdam. 'Despite the loss of many men and one of the ships, troubles with both Javans and Portuguese, and profits barely large enough to cover expenses, the return of De Houtman's fleet set of a flurry of activity among Dutch entrepreneurs. In 1598, the year after its return, no fewer than twenty-five ships were sent out by merchants of the provinces of Holland and Zeeland alone' (Lach & Van Kley, Asia in the making, III,1, p.439). This voyage provided European readers with the most detailed description of Java to date and with the first continuous description of Bali in any language. At the Cape they landed and encountered a party of Hottentots. - (Part of plate 17 (market scene) missing; some plates cut slightly short). - Rare early edition of the 'First Fleet'.Landwehr, VOC, 251; Tiele 512; Tiele, Mémoire, 120; Cat.

(Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. With 5 engraved maps and plates. 79 pp. (text set in two columns). Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - The first official account of the circumnavigation was published in 1626. This punitive fleet of eleven ships set sail to the coasts of South America with the objective of clearing the westward route to the Pacific of Spanish and Portuguese shipping. The fleet was outfitted under the auspices of the Dutch gouvernment, the two major companies, the Dutch East India Company and Dutch West India Company, having little interest in the Pacific (Howgego p.615). L'Hermite attacked Lima, burned a Spanish fleet at Callao, and went as far as north as Acapulco. It was one of the most spectacular raids against Spanish shipping. With important appendix: Description of Peru and Chile by Pedro de Madriga; Pedro Fernandez de Quir's voyage to Australia; and the history of the Dutch conquest of Banda. With maps of Teirra del Fuego, Callao de Lima (2), Puna and Acapulco.Landwehr, VOC, 250; European Americana II, p.453. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

With plate depicting the fortress on Banda. 214 pp. (text set in two columns).Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - Pieter Willemszoon Verhoeff commanded one of the last voyages of the first phase of Dutch occupation in the East Indies. His instructions, in addition to destroying as much Iberian shipping as possible, were to drive the Spanish and Portuguese out of the Moluccas (Howgego p. 1065-1066). This account of Verhoeff's voyages is a composite piece. It starts with the journal by the chief merchant Johan de Moelre and continued, after he was killed, by the fleet's treasurer Jacques Le Febure. Followed by extracts from the journal of Reynier Dirckszoon, the pilot aboard one of the ships which sailed to Japan, and the journal of Jacob Specx and Pieter Segerszoon also on Japan. This piece is followed by a report by Samuel Bloemaert about trade and negotiations on Borneo and Appolonius Schotte's accounts of the Moluccas and Gillis Seys report of 1627 on Amboina. These materials constitute a rich source of information about the expansion of Dutch power in the Moluccas, the negotiations with the inlanders, the war with the Spaniards, the details of trade, and the daily life of the Dutch stationed there. This account of Verhoeff's voyage was never separately reprinted during the 17th century. (Lach & Van Kley, III, p.471-472). - Missing pp.165-166 but added in photocopy).Landwehr, VOC, 250.

ORDINE MAURIZIANO.
In Torino, per Francesco Ferrosino, 1646. in-4, pp. 40, bella legatura in pergamena semifloscia, titolo abbreviato lungo il dorso. Sul frontespizio impresso in rosso e nero stemma silografico di Carlo Emanuele II, quinto Gran Maestro dell'ordine, alcune iniziali xilogr. Edizione di grande eleganza, in cui 35 delle 40 pagine sono impresse in rosso e nero. In fine, una grande tavola (410x305 mm) più volte ripiegata, firmata "Ant. Franc. Rocca delin." ma priva del nome dell'incisore. Illustra ogni fase dell'investitura, così come descritta dal testo: la lettura del ceremoniale, la professione della fede, la benedizione della spada, la benedizione del manto e vestizione, il giuramento, e l'imposizione della spada sulla spalla. Sul trono siede il giovanissimo Duca Carlo Emanuele II (1634-1675, quindi dodicenne all'epoca della pubblicazione del libro), che poggia la spada sulla spalla del cavaliere. Questa notevolissima incisione, vera e propria esaltazione del Barocco, ricca di personaggi, cavalieri, putti e simboli dell'Ordine, è stranamente sconosciuta, non essendo compresa in nessuno dei due esemplari censiti e neppure nell'edizione senza data impressa da Luigi Pizzamiglio. Il terzogenito maschio di Vittorio Amedeo I (1587 - 1637) e di Maria Cristina di Borbone-Francia, sorella di Luigi XIII, salì al trono nel 1638, alla morte del fratello Francesco Giacinto, ma il suo regno effettivo cominciò nel 1663, dopo la reggenza della Madama Reale. Esemplare di eccezionale freschezza, impreziosito dall'aggiunta della grande tavola. . .

Kircher had come tantalisingly close … [Click Below for Full Description]
