        The Cotton Plant

      - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) Watercolor transfer print Paper size: 20” x 14” 31” x 24” framed This spectacular examples of Maria Sibylla Merian’s work are from one of a very few transfer-print watercolor volumes known to exist. Merian herself prepared the volume. After an uncolored print was made, she applied dampened paper to it, pressing by hand to create an image of the print in reverse. In this volume she chose to block out the plate numbers and then add by hand, to some images, numbers and notations. Merian then painstakingly watercolored the dried paper herself, ensuring that the colors were true to the specimens she had seen in South America, and also allowing her style to emerge with greatest clarity. The volume was not meant for sale, and its intended purpose cannot be known with any certainty. Perhaps it was created as a gift for a wealthy and important patron, perhaps Merian meant to keep it herself. What can be stated without a doubt is that these splendid images represent a unique opportunity to acquire original works by an artist who broke barriers as a woman, as a scientist and artist, and whose accomplishments are no less impressive today than they were in her time.

        De Vita et Moribus Epicuri Libri Octo

      Woodcut printer's device on title & one engraved plate with a port. of Epicurus. 4 leaves, 5-236, [18] pp. 4to, cont. French sheep (head & foot of spine neatly repaired, several signatures lightly browned), single gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Lyons: G. Barbier, 1647. First edition of an important book; this life of Epicurus, which emphasized his philosophy of physics, was the foundation of Gassendi's Epicurean atomism. His atomic theory was applied to chemistry by Boyle and adopted by Newton in his new mechanical philosophy. "Before Galileo and Descartes had succeeded in combining mathematics with mechanics, the chief refuge of hard-headed opponents of scholastic verbalism and Renaissance Platonism was the tradition of Greek atomism...Its chief representative during the period of Cartesian domination was Gassendi, who stands both as the climax of Epicurean atomism of the Renaissance in its accommodation to a mathematical science of nature, and as the first of the explorers of the implications of that science for the traditional empirical philosophy of knowledge. Gassendi is thus with Hobbes one of the fathers of 'scientific' empiricism...Gassendi indeed fancied himself the creator of the great rival scientific system to that of Descartes, the system founded on sound experience. History has reserved that distinction for Hobbes; yet it probable that Gassendi contributed far more to the actual advance of scientific ideas than his more consistent and gifted British fellow-worker."­J.H. Randall, The Career of Philosophy, Vol. I, pp. 521-23. Fine unpressed copy. Bookplate of René Escande de Messières. Partington, II, pp. 458-66. .

        XL QUESTIONS CONCERNING The SOULE. Propounded by Dr. Balthasar Walter [Walther]. And Answered by Jacob Behmen. Aliˆs Teutonicus Philosophus. And in his Answer to the First Question is the Turned EYE, or Philsophick GLOBE. (Which in it selfe containeth all Mysteries) with an Exposition of it. Written in the Germane Language. Anno. 1620. [bound with] The CLAVIS Or KEY. Or, An Exposition of Some Principall Matters, and Words in the Writings of Jacob Behmen. Very Usefull for the Better Apprehending, and Understanding of this Booke. Written in the Germane Language, in March, and Aprill, Anno. 1624.

      Printed by M. S. for H. Blunden, at the Castle in Corne-hill., London: 1647 - Inserted table & plate (imperfect, lacking 'folded' left side [approx. 1 - 1.5"]). Bohme a German philosophical mystic who had a profound influence on such later intellectual movements as idealism and Romanticism. Born of poor parents in Goerlitz Germany, as a boy he tended cattle, later becoming a shoemaker, marrying & fathering 4 children. Boehme, at the robust age of 37 in 1612, wrote his first treatise Aurora, oder Die Morgenroete in Aufgang. In 1613, an unauthorized copy of the manuscript was copied and circulated by Karl von Ender. Its reception "raised him out of his homely sphere, and made him the centre of a local circle of liberal thinkers, considerably above him in station and culture." However, the local pastor primarius of Gorlitz, Gregorius Richter, leveled a charge of heresy. The local muncipal council administered an admonishment to no further "meddle in such matters." This charge Boehme [publicly] followed for 5 years. In 1618 Boehme again started writing expository & polemical treatises. The majority of his works were written, though not formally published, from 1619 - 1624. A second major work, Der Weg zu Christo, was published in 1624, and signaled a renewal of clerical hostility. Boehem, however, was destined to suffer but a short period of this second persecution; he died of an illness on 17 November 1624. Boehme has been said to have a "fertility of ideas" and a "trasncendent greatness of religious insight." Boehme was studied by Sir Isaac Newton and influenced the work Henry More, as well as [and especially] William Law [1686 - 1761].Xl Questions concerning the Soule was translated by the English mystic John Sparrow, in collaboration with John Ellstone, & financed by Humphrey Blunden. This the first of several works by Boehme that Sparrow & Ellstone were to translate into English between 1644 - 1662. Boehme proved to be highly popular in England, where there were regular societies of Behmenists at the time. This work, XL Questions, went into a second edition in 1648, and a third edition in 1665. [11th EB].A scarce title in the Boehme canon. We find no copies currently offered via the major on-line databases, OCLC records but 4 institional cc, and the work has only appeared at auction 3 times in the last 25+ years, the last in 1989.

The Robinson / Phillipps copy, sold at Sotheby's in June 1986, lacked the engraved title page in volume II.Telles' work is an important source for the history of the early Jesuit missions (up to the 1550s), particularly in Brazil and India. On Brazil, see Book 3, chs. 1-13, Book 4, chs. 7-12 and Book 5, chs. 6-13 and 52; on India, Book 1, chs. 10-12, Book 2, chs. 4 and 48-51, Book 6, chs. 10-13, 35-39 and 61.

Thomé (Book 6, ch. 31).The text refers to the work of P. Melchior Nunes Barreto in China and Japan in 1551 in Book 3, ch. 27 (I, 546-49), and also mentions P. Melchior's good friend St. Francis Xavier.Balthazar Telles taught rhetoric, philsophy, and theology at Braga, Évora, Lisbon and Coimbra.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 852: "This work is a classic for the information it gives about the first Jesuits in Brazil, and is very rare"; calling for the title-page plus 12 leaves at the beginning of volume I and title-page plus 8 leaves at the beginning of volume II, aside from the engraved title-pages: apparently in error, since descriptions of actual copies and the description in Innocêncio call for the same collation as this copy.

        Virginia Item et Floridae

      Amsterdam 1647 - Henrici Hondius (1597-1651) Virginia Item et Floridae Amsterdam: 1647 Hand-colored copperplate engraving Beautiful original color Areas of minor discoloration along bottom edge of paper (outside of plate mark) 28 1/2" x 32" framed Virginiae Item et Floridae by Henricus Hondius was published in Amsterdam in 1647. This map is a beautifully detailed, hand-colored copperplate engraving of Virginia and Florida with accompanying Latin text. The map and its’ publisher Henricus Hondius both have wonderful histories. Hondius, the younger son of famed map publisher Jodocus Hondius, was born in 1597. Like his father, Henricus was a cartographer and engraver. Jodocus’s great contributions to world of cartography included publishing an updated Meractor’s Atlas, working with John Speed and others. Henricus, following his father’s death in 1612, established his own branch of the family business in 1621. He published an edition of Mercator’s-Hondius Atlas in 1641. Virginiae Item et Floridae was added to the 1647 addition of the Atlas. This map is a derivative from a series of other maps that had been elaborated on over time. Hondius’s information was received via the early maps of John Smith, an early colonist who sailed from England to Jamestown, Virginia in 1607. Given instructions to find gold, silver, and the quickest route to the Pacific, the only task Smith accomplished was to create a detailed, geographical cartography of the Chesapeake Bay Area. Smith’s interaction with the Native American tribes, particularly the Powhatan and the Susquehanna, meant that he could include the indigenous names for rivers, inlets and places on his map. Smith published early versions of the map in 1606, but it wasn’t until 1612 that his pamphlet, A Map of Virginia With a Description of the Contrey, reached a wide audience outside of England. Smith’s map continued to remain the most influential for other cartographers until the end of the seventeenth century. Hondius’s map is a copy cut from his brother, Jodocus, and cartographer William Blaeu’s plates from 1629. The cartography of Florida is derived from the work of Jacques Le Moyne. Hondius’s map is the fifth derivative from Smith’s. His attention to detail is excellent. The large, cartouche not only clear states what the map is depicting but also has two arms that show early indigenous settlements. The settlement on the left is in Florida and the one on the right is in Virginia. The content of map is rather sparse for inland areas, but the coastal areas are clearly labeled. A few rivers reach inland. The mountains are clearly illustrated. Other such embellishments include two deer and a lovely turkey. From Virginia, the land extends into Florida (Note that the coastline of the states of South and North Carolina and Georgia are greatly shortened.) where areas are labeled and outlined in pink and green. The sea is depicted in light blue, and where a few ships sail so do several sea creatures. The lower corner of this map includes a smaller cartouche labeling coordinates and a compass with rhumb lines. The only figures on the map are depictions of Native Americans; four are at sea in canoes, while two larger figures grace the top of Florida. Dressed in traditional costume, they stand on top an elaborate Latin inscription. Not all the place names are written in Latin, some retain their original Native American spelling. Since this map is derived from a compilation of sources not all the information is correct. Next to the two standing figures is a large lake that flows to the Atlantic and is labeled R de May. While the River May is clearly depicted and is topographically accurate it does not flow from or into a great lake. Hondius’s map is a wonderful assimilation of various aspects of cartographic history making it a delightful addition to one’s collection. Similar versions and copies grace the collections of the New York Public Library, Yale, John Carter Brown, Duke and Harvard University.

        Remarques sur la langue francoise utiles a ceux qui veulent bien parler et bien escrire.

      Paris, Veuve Jean Camusat et Pierre Le Petit, 1647.. Petit in-4, pleine basane marbree de l'epoque, dos a nerfs orne de caissons richement dores aux petits fers, tranches rouges (pet. accrocs aux coif.), (2) f. de page de titre et planche allegorique gravee par F. Chauveau, (26) f., 593 p., (1) p. d'avertissement, (11) f. de table, vignettes et culs-de-lampe graves. Edition originale. L'oeuvre capitale de Vaugelas qui fixait l'usage du francais pour l'"honnete homme" dans la societe de cour. L'autorite sur les ecrivains et la societe lettree de celui que Boileau appelait "le plus sage de nos ecrivains" fut considerable, et tout le XVIIe siecle s'appliqua a "parler Vaugelas", selon l'expression de Moliere. Ce "veritable statisticien du langage" (Sainte-Beuve, 'Nouveaux lundis'), qui fut en son temps "l'organe le plus accredite du meilleur et du plus pur parler de la France", mourut pauvre et insolvable ; ses creanciers saisirent, dans l'espoir d'en tirer un benefice, les notes qu'il avait prises pour ses 'Remarques' et pour le 'Dictionnaire'. A la suite d'un proces, Conrart put en faire restituer une partie a l'Academie francaise. ('En Francais dans le Texte', n° 93. Tchemerzine-Scheler, V, 948). Quelques aureoles, quelques cahiers brunis. Exemplaire de Jean-Armand Tronchin (1732-1813), avec ex-libris grave par Choffard (date de 1779). Il fut notamment ministre de la Republique de Geneve a Paris de 1785 a 1792, puis accredite aupres du roi d'Angleterre. Ami de Necker, il l'accompagna en Suisse lors de son renvoi en 1790. Bon exemplaire, tres bien relie a l'epoque..

Amsterdam, Zacharias Webber [printed by Tymon Houthaeck?], 1651. 12mo. With the Latin on the versos and the Dutch translations on the facing rectos. Contemporary vellum.

      Bibliography of the Works of J. A. Comenius: www.lib.cas.cz/kvo/bibliografie-komensky/index-en.html (3 copies); WorldCat (2 of the same 3 copies); this ed. not in Picarta; STCN; cf. ESTC R224086 ("1647" [=1657] English ed.). Fourth known copy of the first edition of Hendrik Schoof's Latin and Dutch adaptation of Comenius's Janua linguarum, an extremely influential version, aimed at a broader public, that served as the basis for the "1647" [=1657] Latin and English edition. No copy is known in any Dutch library. This revolutionary method for learning Latin contained 1000 sentences that attempted to present the basic Latin vocabulary in the context of its use, rather than teaching rules of grammar and memorizing lists of words. Schoof's Latin and Dutch edition is based on this revised version of the simplified text. Instead of 1000 numbered sentences it contains 500 numbered groups of related words, usually opening with the most general word, followed by more specific words. Schoof's present edition served as the model for Joseph Brookbank's Latin and English edition, published in 1657 ("1647"on title-page). Since the book was intended for beginners, often people with relatively little education, most editions were small and inexpensive and have become extremely rare. With two owner's inscriptions on title-page and a Latin poem(?) on an end leaf. With minor soiling and foxing, but still in good condition. The binding is soiled and rubbed, but remains structurally sound. An important and extremely rare Comenius edition intended for a popular audience.

Quibus præmittitur Theophrasti liber De Lapidibus Græce & Latine cum brevibus annotationibus.Leiden, Johannes Maire, 1647. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. With publisher's device on both title-pages, about 100 woodcut illustrations in the text (some nearly full-page). 17th-century overlapping vellum.

      Breugelmans, Maire 1647:5A; Sinkankas 778-781 & 3747; Ward 253 & 1307; DSB II, pp. 292-293; cf. Krivatsy 1539-1542 (other eds. of ad 1). Third and best edition of Boodt's finely illustrated manual on gems and precious stones, a "celebrated encyclopedic work, by far the most thorough and complete up to date, . . . distinguished by its intimate knowledge of the art of the lapidary . . ." (Sinkankas). Boodt first published his work in 1609, adding new information in the subsequent editions, making the present third and last edition the most desirable. It is bound, like most copies, with De Laet's classic lapidary. Divided into two books, it treats transparent and semi-transparent gemstones in the first book and the more ordinary stones in the second. It includes Theophrastus's Peri Lithon, in the original Greek, interspersed with the Latin translation. The present first edition of De Laet's classic work on gems was clearly designed to accompany Boodt's. Together they remained the most important source about Renaissance gem cutting, the carving of precious stones, jewelry making, colouring, forgery and trade in precious stones. With early owner's name of Danish bookcollector Luxdorph on the flyleaf and early 20th-century stamp on title-page. With one tear repaired in the text, one marginal chip, and minor foxing, but still a very good copy. By far the best edition of the best early works on gemology and the cutting of gems and precious stones, beautifully and extensively illustrated.
