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."

Henrici Hondius
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLAEU, Willem (1571-1638) and Jan BLAEU (1598-1673)
Amsterdam: Blaeu, [circa 1647]. Copper-engraved map, with original colour. German text on verso. 16 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches. A highly decorative map of an area of utmost importance to the prosperity of the 17th-century Netherlands. Of all the Amsterdam map publishers, the Blaeus were the most attentive to their public. The constantly growing index of maps and the perpetually high quality of presentation through 65 years of operation suggest a strong understanding of and commitment to a large, educated audience. Both father and son were official mapmakers to the Dutch East India Company which to a large degree funded the Dutch Golden Age. Their work is one of the emblems of that fascinating era. The pioneering ships that set sail from Portugal and Spain in early Renaissance days to gather the wealth of the Orient were compelled by the Muslim and Italians to travel south and west in order to reach their destinations. the vessels of the more northern maritime powers followed soon after, particularly the Dutch and British. The effects of these voyages changed the history and character of mankind. Every single culture on earth was changed by the European explorations and intrusions, including Europe's. This great 17th century map of Asia captures a moment in this vast transformation. The Portuguese had touched India in 1499, Canton in 1516, Beijing in 1520 and Japan in 1542. The first Dutch expedition to Java set out from the Cape of Good Hope in 1595 and, in the wake of many more Dutch merchantmen, the Dutch East India Company was formed in 1602.

BLAEU, Willem Jansz
Amsterdam: Willem Blaeu, 1647. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 14.75" x 18 7/8". Rare and early 1647 map of the Chesapeake Bay and the Virginia Colony by Willem Blaeu. Oriented with north to the right, the map shows the Chesapeake Bay in its entirety and extends from Cape Henry to the Susquehanna River. This map was originally a derivation of the map by John Smith from 1612. Settlements are marked with a house and the parameters of Smith's explorations are marked with a cross. Denotes many place names including Jamestown and geographical and topographical elements. Features two architectural arnate cartouches and a coat of arms. A Sasquesahanough Indian is featured below the cartouche. An elaborate vignette showing the Powhatan King surrounded by his subjects in an early depiction of a Native American Longhouse is included in the top left. The map is considered by some to be one of the most important maps of America ever produced. This is the second state of the map, identified by the german text on verso, dating this map to 1647. This map is in good condition with minor overall toning, light scattered foxing, folds to margins from previous framing. Full original margins. Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prolific Dutch mapmaker who started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by hi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wishart's account of the campaign of the Marquess of Montrose, fighting in Scotland for the royalist cause in the years 1644-1646 is a glowing account of heroic loyalty. The book paints its picture at the expense of other royalist figures and Charles I would order it supressed for this reason. While initially successful Montrose would eventually be defeated and in 1650 he was executed with a copy of Wishart's book hung around his neck. , 8vo , [xxiv] 248 & [8] 192 pp .

SWEERT, Emanuel.
Florilegium., Amsterdam 1647. Plate 27. Copper engraving. Later colour. Fine condition, good margins. Size: 21 x 33.5 cm. (8½ x 13 inches). The print shows four plants- the vine - 'Vitis Vinifera', Rosemary, 'Balsamina sive momordica' and 'Halicacabus Indicus Arborescens'. The designs are beautifully balanced on the page and the captions elegantly inscribed. Emanuel Sweert was prefect of the gardens of the Emperor Rudolf II in Prague. His Florilegium was first printed in Frankfurt by Kempner in 1612 -1614. It was originally a sales catalogue for plants and bulbs from Sweert's gardens, to be sold at fairs in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, but now these very attractive engravings are regarded as fine examples of 17th century botanical illustration and are much collected.

Justinien Ier (527-565
Amsterdam 1647 - Justinien Ier (527-565) ~ Imperaratoris Justiani Institutionum Libri IV ~ A Amsterdam, 1647. I-18, vélin époque, 304 pp., frontispice. Le Code de Justinien, plus connu sous le nom scientifique de corpus juris civilis est la plus grande compilation de droit romain antique. Ce code est issu de l'ambition de Justinien Ier, empereur de l'Empire romain d'Orient. Celui ci souhaitait disposer d'un code de droit utile à son empire et fidèle à la tradition romaine. L'œuvre est à mi-chemin entre codification et compilation. Bien qu'ils aient repris les textes classiques, les auteurs ont su adapter des textes d'époque très différentes (théoriquement toute l'histoire romaine !), de la Loi des Douze Tables aux constitutions impériales du Bas-empire, pour constituer un ensemble cohérent, assez différent du droit romain classique, car accordé au christianisme. Cette œuvre législative prend une importance fondamentale en Occident car c'est sous cette forme reçue de Justinien que l'Occident médiéval, à partir du XIIe siècle adopte le droit romain, ancêtre de notre droit. Justinien était tellement sûr de la pérennité du corpus qu'il abrogea tout le droit antérieur, conféra une autorité équivalente à l'ensemble de l'œuvre, et interdit même tout commentaire du Digeste, " clair comme de l'eau de roche ". Vers 900, l'empereur Léon le Sage commanda la traduction de l'ensemble en grec, pour le rendre compréhensible aux juristes byzantins. Cette version grecque fut intitulée Basilica. Liber primus :I:1 De iustitia et iure I:2 De iure naturali, gentium et civili I:3 D … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maria Sibylla Merian
- 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.

BLAEU, Willem (1571-1638) and Jan BLAEU (1598-1673)
Amsterdam: Joan Blaeu, [circa 1647]. Copper-engraved map, with original colour. Third state (of 3). 16 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches. A great 17th-century Dutch map: "a cornerstone, folio-size map of Africa" (Betz) Of all the Amsterdam map publishers, the Blaeus were the most attentive to their public. The constantly growing index of maps and the perpetually high quality of presentation through the 65 years or so of operation suggest a strong understanding of and commitment to a large, educated audience. Both father and son were official mapmakers to the Dutch East India Company, which to a large degree funded the Dutch Golden Age. Their work is one of the emblems of that fascinating era. The map of Africa has the panels of city views and costumed natives that are a feature of Blaeu maps. The content of the map itself is essentially a reduced copy of Willem Blaeu's 1608 wall map. The first issue of the present map was published in 1617, and a second in 1626. The present third issue appeared in about 1647 and remained in print for much of the 17th century. Like all European maps of Africa at that time, Northern Africa and the boundaries of the continent are portrayed fairly well, while the interior of sub-Saharan Africa is very vague, largely based on rumor, speculation and some timid excursions up the larger rivers: the Niger, the Congo and the Zambesi. Most of the more credible information about the interior came from Leo Africanus' History and Description of Africa first published in 1550, but even this is not geographically definitive. The rest came from the oral testimony … [Click Below for Full Description]
