SWEERT, Emanuel.
Florilegium., Amsterdam 1647. Plate 19. Copper engraving. Later colour. Fine condition, good margins. Size: 21 x 33.5 cm. (8½ x 13 inches). Beautiful plate of four flowers. 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. Engraved by JANSSON, Jan.

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]

SWEERT, Emanuel
[Frankfurt or Amsterdam, 1647. Copper engravings, with expert modern hand-colouring. A fine highly decorative pair of 17th-century tulip portraits from Sweert's 'Florilegium' The Dutch florist Emanuel Sweert produced his 'Florilegium' at the behest of the Emperor Rudolf II of Austria. Six editions were published in Frankfurt (1) or Amsterdam (5) between 1612 and about 1647. The present pair of Tulip prints are amongst the most beautiful of the images produced for the 'Florilegium': the flowers of 24 varieties are shown with brief explanatory text beneath each one, all beautifully arranged in ranks that echo the patterned precision with which they were grown by 17th-century gardeners. Tulips today are highly appreciated for the joyful range of colours and the elegant shapes they present in early spring. At the time when the present images were printed, Tulips were the main horticultural obsession. Their growing was essentially a pastime for the rich and powerful. The search for new varieties (particularly the bi-colour or 'broken' varieties) reached its zenith in Amsterdam in the 1620s and 1630s with a sort of 'dot-com' speculation and investment frenzy when individual bulbs fetched more than a medium-sized house.

La PEYERE, Isaac de], 1594-1676
A aris. Chez Augustin Courbe, dans la petite Salle du Palais, a la Palme. 1647.. 1647. Book 8vo. 16.5x 11cm, [xiv],272,[4]p. title page in facsimile, lacks map and frontis plates, bound in contemporary full vellum, incomplete copy of a rare book (cgc) T.P.L. 6322. Alden, Lande 1278, Rich, Sabin. cf. T.P.L. no. 21 for the first english translation; 1850. It is included in Recueil de Voiages au Nord, by J.F. Bernard. q.v. and a new English translation was printed in the Hakluyt Society's Publications no. 18. 1855. This relation, generally regarded as material on Greenland, is rather more an account of regions further west. It is written in the form of a letter to Monsieur de La Mothe le Vayez containing accounts of voyages by Frobisher, Hudson, and Munck. La Peyere secured his material in Demark while a member of the French ambassador's staff, 1644-45, but his work contains many inaccuracies. Captain Johan Munck, an early explorer of the north-west portion of Hudson Bay, is mentioned on the map in this edition. (Wanting in this copy). The unnumbered pages at the beginning of the book are an advertisement describing the map. .

Cotton's meticulous elaboration of the scriptural basis for singing, in which he repeatedly affirms vocal music as God's divine design.

AELIANOS, Claudios || SCHEFFERUS, Johannes (utg.)
Strassburg, Friederici Spoor, 1647. 8:o. Grav. titelblad,+ (14),+ 384, 359-397,+ (120) s. Genomgående fuktrand och fläckig. Samtida solkigt pergamentband. Litet hål i ryggen. Med Erik Aurivillius namnteckning på titelbladet, daterad 1669, och Bengt Löws namnteckning i blyerts. Grekisk-latinsk parallelltext. Hoffman 12 ("Scheffer verbesserte vieles"). Schweiger s. 3. Fant 3. Första upplagan av Schefferus Aelianusutgåva och tillika hans första textutgåva. Överhuvudtaget en av Schefferus tidigaste utgivna böcker och, som alla hans böcker från Strassburgtiden, sällsynt. Schefferus har själv ritat och graverat titelbladet. Det är ingen av hans bättre utgåvor, han hade inga nya handskrifter att tillgå, och han har återanvänt en äldre latinsk översättning. Enligt Fant har han dock i anmärkningarna lyckats rätta både det ena och det andra. Ποικιλησ ιστοριασ eller "Brokig historia" innehåller ett antal moraliserande anekdoter och är tillsammans med "Djurhistorier" det enda som finns kvar av sofisten Claudius Aelianus skrifter. Denne levde på 2:a århundradet e. K. och var romare till börden, men skrev på grekiska. Till dessa anekdoter hör även 20 brev med erotiskt innehåll. Dessa finns dock inte med i Schefferus utgåvor. En ny upplaga utkom 1662 och en tredje 1685. Bra proveniens: Erik Aurivillius (1643-1702) skrevs in vid Uppsala universitet 1656 och studerade bl.a. under Schefferus. Han disputerade 1664 och blev så småningom professor i romersk rätt och från 1691 universitetets rektor.

Estienne, Charles et Jean Liebaut.
Rouen: Jean Berthelin, 1647. Derniere edition ([16] introduction, advertissement, table; 674; [20] table des matieres; [20] L’usage de la Iauge); first published in Latin 1554 and in French 1591, translated and augmented by Liebaut (or ‘Liebault’). Surflet’s English translation first appeared in 1600 (See our book no.1104 for the second Englished edition). Quarto (23cm x 18cm), in modern half leather over marbled paper, gilt title to spine; marbled endpapers, red lettered title page; illustrated throughout with a number of woodcuts showing lay-outs, stills, etc.; final section on measurement (l’usage de la Iauge) with figures in text. An early country handbook and encyclopaedia which, if it could not bring science fully to bear on farming and country life, at least sought to bring reason and order. An important foundation book on agriculture and health (also distilleries). Considering the popularity of the book ( French editions ran until the early 18th century), it appears surprisingly scarce. A clean, presentable copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

AELIANOS, Claudios || SCHEFFERUS, Johannes (Ed.)
Strassburg, Friederici Spoor, 1647. 8:o. Graverat titelblad,+ (14),+ 384, 359-397,+ (120) s. Litet hål i marginalen genom titelbladet och de fyra följande. K- och L-arken omkastade vid inbindningen. Maskhål i marginalen. Nött samtida pergamentband som senare gjorts om till halvpergament med röda pärmpapper, nyare försättsblad. Äldre bläckanteckningar på främre pärmens insida, biblioteksstämpel från Lunds Universitetsbibliotek med dupl. anteckning samt Fr. Wulffs nästan utraderade namnteckning. Ur P. E. Lindahls bibliotek. Hoffman 12 ("Scheffer verbesserte vieles"). Schweiger s. 3. Fant 3. Första upplagan av Schefferus Aelianusutgåva och tillika hans första textutgåva. Överhuvudtaget en av Schefferus tidigaste utgivna böcker och, som alla hans böcker från Strassburgtiden, sällsynt. Det är ingen av hans bättre utgåvor, han hade inga nya handskrifter att tillgå, och han har återanvänt en äldre latinsk översättning. Enligt Fant har han dock i anmärkningarna lyckats rätta både det ena och det andra. Ποικιλησ ιστοριασ eller "Brokig historia" innehåller ett antal moraliserande anekdoter och är tillsammans med "Djurhistorier" det enda som finns kvar av sofisten Claudius Aelianus skrifter. Denne levde på 2:a århundradet e. K. och var romare till börden, men skrev på grekiska. Till dessa anekdoter hör även 20 brev med erotiskt innehåll. Dessa finns dock inte med i Schefferus utgåvor. En ny upplaga utkom 1662 och en tredje 1685. Schefferus har själv ritat och graverat titelbladet. Grekisk-latinsk parallelltext.

NAPLES].
[Lisbon], [colophon] por D.[omingos] Lopes Roza, 1647?. 4°, later plain grey wrappers (minor soiling), old manuscript title on front cover, text-block edges rouged. Caption title. Four-line woodcut initial. A bit rubbed on final page. In very good condition. Engraved bookplate of Victor d'Avila Perez. (6 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this rare account of a 1647 rebellion in Naples led by Masaniello (Tommaso Aniello), a fisherman, against the rule of Philip IV of Spain. The rebellion briefly created an independent Neapolitan republic, which lasted only until 1648 but remains a celebrated moment in the history of Naples. Not surprisingly, few if any accounts of this rebellion were printed in Spanish dominions. This one appeared in Portugal, which had declared its independence of Spanish rule in 1640 and was still at war with Spain. The relevance of all this for the Portuguese war of independence is summed up on f. A4v.This Relaçam begins with a recap of the history of Naples and Sicily under French and Spanish rule (including the Sicilian Vespers), briefly describes the recent rebellion in Sicily (ff. A1v-A2r), then moves on to a detailed account of the rebellion in Naples (ff. A2r-A4v). The central characters are Masaniello and the viceroy of Naples, Rodrigo Ponce de León, fourth Duke of Arcos, but the names and actions of many others are also included. On ff. A4v-A6v is the full text of the agreement between the viceroy and the people of Naples, dated Naples July 12, 1647. In it the viceroy grants Neapolitans limited self-government, promises restrictions on taxes, an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed, title page re-hinged. Title page printed in red and black, woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Toning, light browning in a few places, light soiling to title page. Chipping to edges of preliminaries and first six pages with minor loss to head-lines, lower corner lacking from leaf B3 with some loss to catch-word. Small later owner initials to title page, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * First edition. The work by an anonymous author describes the practice of the courts, the forms of writs and an explanation of law terms as they existed during the reign of Edward I. It was John Selden who first called the attention of the public to this ancient treatise, and was instrumental in procuring its publication. While Bracton earns the highest praise as the father of legal learning, Fleta earns a share of it for the illustrations he offered to some of the obscurities found in Bracton.

PAULLI, SIMON - FIRST DANISH ILLUSTRATED HERBAL.
Kiøbenhafn, Melchiore Martzan, (1647-) 1648. 4to. (19,2x14,5 cm.). Senere helldrbd. med rig rygforgyldning (fra ca 1850). Med en krakelering i midten af ryggen der er repareret, ligesom kapitæler og false. Kobberstukket portræt af Paulli (efter Karel van Mander), kobberstukket titelblad afbildende gudinden Flora siddende i en portal hvorigennem der er udsigt til byens tårne (disse to kobbere tæt beskåret i ene margin og opklæbet). De 4 deltitelblade med de såkaldte årstidkobbere mangler. (36),(786 (= fol 1-393)),(94) pp. samt 376 helsides træsnit af planter på 188 blade. De 4 deltitelblade som hører til billeddelen er tilstede.Til slut kolofonbladet med Plantin's helsides træskårne bogtrykkermærke. Billeddelen har tilskrifter i gl. hånd med danske navne og undertiden anføres deres brug. Marginalnoterne er her tæt beskåret ved ombindingen. Trykt på svært papir, eksemplaret er i god stand med kun lette brugsspor. Registerbladene (94) omfatter 4 registre, 3 sprogregistre (latin, tysk, dansk) og et "sygdomsregister". ¶ Den sjældne originaludgave af det første danske Herbarium, der som titelbladet angiver både skulle tjene som en botanik, men også som en lægebog. Bogen er et af 16oo-tallets finest udstyrede danske værker. I et brev dateret 1645 opfordrer Christian IV Collegium Medicum til at forfatte et værk, som skulle indeholde allehånde råd mod sygdomme, og oplysning om, hvor folk kunne finde urterne således at de uden de store omkostninger kunne kurere sig selv når sygdom opstod. Kollegiet overdrog opgaven hermed til Simon Paulli. En af grundene til, at bogen kom i et så fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bohme a German philosophical mystic who had a profound influence on such later intellectual movements as idealism and Romanticism.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
