PELSAERT, Francois
Amsterdam: Jan Jansz, 1647. Bound without the final blank leaf; paper repair lower edge of plate 2, some minor lower marginal staining to a couple of leaves, otherwise in excellent condition.. Small quarto, with six full-page plates comprising 15 separately engraved images: seventeenth-century vellum, spine faintly lettered in ink; preserved in a handsome calf bookform box. A wonderful copy of an exceptional rarity: the very first views of Australia are the astonishing highlight of this, the first Australian book, the earliest record of any European landing on the Australian continent, and a famous tale of murder and mystery. This is one of only two copies of the first edition of 1647 that we know to be held outside institutions. Pelsaert's account of the "unlucky voyage" and wreck of the VOC ship Batavia off the western Australian coastline in 1629 and its gruesome aftermath is the first published account of any voyage of Australian discovery. The book is justly famous not only for the remarkable tale but for the suite of engraved illustrations that accompany the text, with graphic reproductions of the wreck, the mutiny and slaughter on the islands, the trial and torture of the leaders and their execution on the mainland; they are the earliest published images of Australia.The story of the wreck itself "provides the greatest dramatic tragedy in Australian history beside which the mutiny on the Bounty is an anaemic tale" (Drake-Brockman). The account was written by Pelsaert (1595-1630), a Belgian officer of the Dutch East India Company who was given comm … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Quran]. Ryer, André du.
1647. 4to. (10), 648 [but: 598], (4) pp. Contemp. full French speckled calf with gilt tooling and title label on spine, dentelles on inner covers. Rare first edition of "the oldest complete translation of the Qur'an into a European vernacular" (Encylopedia of the Qur'an), in a handsome copy. Du Ryer's work served as the basis for further translations of the Qur'an into English, German, Dutch, and Russian, and was instrumental in introducing Europeans to the tenets of the Muslim faith. Du Ryer was a celebrated linguist and had lived in Egypt and Turkey, where he studied classical Arabic. His introduction briefly summarizes the Muslim religion for Christian readers, noting customs such as Ramadan, circumcision, the practice of having up to four wives, the significance of Mecca and Medina, Sufi brotherhoods and wandering ascetics, and finally the Islamic recognition of Jesus as a prophet but not the son of God. A prayer printed in Arabic is included on the verso of leaf e2. - "Du Ryer's translation of the Qur'an [...] became an unparalleled literary success [...] The easy availability of the Qur'an accompanied a newfound interest in the Orient; additionally, du Ryer's translation lacked the polemical tone of previous editions, an orientation which arose mainly in ecclesiastical contexts. Du Ryer used Islamic commentaries such as al-Bayawi's Anwar al-tanzil, the Tafsir al-Jalalayan by al-Mahalli (d. 864/1459) and al-Suyu i (d. 911/1505), or an excerpt from al-Razi's (d. 606/1210) great commentary made by l-Raghi l-Tunisi (d. 715/1315) entitled al-Tanwir fi l-tafsir, quite casua … [Click Below for Full Description]

1647. Manuscrit in-folio (25 x 37cm) de 152 pp. à plusieurs graphies, écritures cursives à 30 lignes en moyenne par page, vélin sur ais de bois recouvert d'un papier raciné postérieur, étiquette imprimée sur le dos (reliure de l'époque). Mémorial du couvent des Annonciades de Saint-Denis près de Paris rédigé avec le temps jusqu'à sa disparition. Il se distingue très nettement du registre des décès inscrit sur papier timbré de ce monastère conservé aux Archives de la ville de Saint-Denis (1737-1789, cote GG223) par son ambition historique affichée dans le titre de départ : Troisième partie du livre des annales de nostre moñstère de l'Annonciade de Saint-Denis : où il est traité du Deuz & Mort de nos chères sœurs, R... de ce monastère selon l'ordre des années qu'il plaist à nostre Seigneur d'en attirer à Soy, commencent de la 1ere année de la fondation et poursuivant de année en autres. La graphie des signataires est la même dans les deux archives. Le XVIIe siècle, moment décisif de la Contre-Réforme catholique, connait une floraison de fondations religieuses que Paris n'avait pas vue depuis le XIIIe siècle. Des ordres nouveaux apparaissent, des couvents surtout de femmes sont fondés par de grands personnages dédiés à l'enseignement, à la charité, à la contemplation etc. Ordre contemplatif fondé à Gênes en 1604 par la bienheureuse Marie Vctoire Strata Fornari, les Annonciades Célestes ou Filles Bleues arrivèrent de Nancy guidées par la marquise de Verneuil (1579-1633) qui les établit à Paris dans une une maison de la rue Couture Sainte Catherine (actuelle rue de Sévigné).

OWEN (John):
Amsterodami, Apud Lud. Elzevirium, A. 1647, 1647. 24mo, 101 x 57 mms., pp. 212, engraved frontispiece portrait of Owen, engraved title-page, no engraved tail-piece on page 204, last line on p. 212 reading "se exercuit, peritia omnibus se approbarit," dated 3 Jan. 1629 and signed by Daniel Heinsius, finely bound in contemporary maroon sheepskin, spine ornately gilt in compartments, gilt border on covers, with floral ornament in each corner, all edges gilt, marbled end-papers. A fine and attractive copy. The Latin poet John Owen (Joannes Audoenus, 1563/4-1622?) studied at Winchester College, when he began to be noticed as a poet. He taught school for some years but commenced professional poet when he moved to London in the early 17th century, where his first three books of epigrams were printed in 1606. In all, he published ten books of epigrams, which were unusually popular and enthusiastically collected by the cognoscenti of the 17th century book world. This appears to be the fourth edition that the Elzevirs published with this date. Copinger, H .B. Elzevier Press 3449.

LA CALPRENEDE (Gauthier de Costes de).
12 vols. in-8. Rel. pleine basane du XVIIIème, dos à nefs ornés de caissons à fleurons dorés, pièce de titre et de tom., tranches rouges (rel. usagées et accidentées, plusieurs coins usés, manques de matière en tête et pied de plusieurs volumes, charnières fendues à deux plats, plusieurs mors fendus, qqs. rousseurs et brunissures éparses, cernes pâles, néanmoins int. frais). Reliure à restaurer. Edition fort rare, en partie originale, de ce vaste roman dédié au grand Condé. Cette œuvre gigantesque, saluée aussi bien par Madame de Sévigné que par La Fontaine ou La Rochefoucauld, est caractéristique du roman héroïque, en vogue au milieu du XVIIe siècle, dans le sillage de l'hôtel de Rambouillet. « La beauté des sentiment - écrivait Madame de Sévigné - la violence des passions, la grandeur des événements et le succès miraculeux des redoutables épées des héros, tout cela m'entraîne comme une petite fille ». La Fontaine, pour sa part, plaçait ce roman parmi les plus beaux de son temps. C'est dans Cléopâtre qu'apparait le personnage resté légendaire du fier Artaban. Publié entre 1647 et 1658, l'ouvrage connut aussitôt le succès et les différents volumes en furent réimprimés successivement. On n'en connaît, de ce fait, pratiquement pas d'exemplaires homogènes et ceux de la Bibliothèque nationale sont composés l'éditions différentes. Notre exemplaire contient 6 volumes (tomes 7 à 12) en premier état. Chaque volume, à l'exception du t. XI, est précédé d'un frontispice de François Chauveau ou non signé. Le t.

GASSENDI, Pierre
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.

Precede l'opera dedica a Luigi XIV. Prima edizione di questo curioso trattato militare, vero e proprio tour de force della tipografia a colori. Con 48 incisioni (spesso firmate con il monogramma ''CR'') in rame a piena pagina n.t. di soldati e oltre 400 illustrazioni tipografiche (alcune su ff. ripiegati) in due o tre colori, testatine, finalini ed iniziali istoriate. I soldati sono raffigurati mentre imparano a destreggiarsi con le armi. Estienne Mignon inoltre invent? e perfezion? questo particolare metodo basato su piccoli stampi quadrati, rotondi e rettangolari di metallo per simulare, tramite l'ausilio anche di differenti colori (rosso, giallo e nero), i possibili schieramenti delle truppe sul campo di battaglia. A ciascun ordine della fanteria e cavalleria ? infatti assegnato un colore per rendere maggiormente comprensibile la schematizzazione grafica compiuta dall'autore. L'effetto finale ? quello di vere e proprie disposizioni geometriche colorate. Le illustrazioni sarebbero tratte dalla Wapenhandelinghe di Jacob de Gheyn (The Hague, 1607), mentre il testo sarebbe ispirato al Kriegskunst zu Fuss (1615) di Johann Jacobi von Wallhausen.

Beaumont, Francis and John Fletcher (Gentlemen)
Humphrey Robinson, London, 1647 - First collected edition. 1 volume complete. Lacks portrait frontispiece of Fletcher. Folio in fours. Title page backed. Pp. [i-lii], 1-75 [76], 1-143 [144], 1-165 [166-168], 1-71 [72], 1-172, 1-92, 1-50 [i.e. 52], 1-28, 25-48 , with the usual occasional mispagination: few marginalia not affecting the text and some brown foxing spots but not affecting the readability of the text. The first few and final pages have a brown spot at the top margins but not reaching the text. This is the last of the three great published collections of Jacobean drama. The work contains 34 plays and a masque., All pages are in order confirmed by the catchwords though page numbers as occasionally misnumbered. Bound in later full calf with raised bands and compartments with red and black leather labels with gilt titles and with blind borders. "The 1647 folio has attracted significant attention from scholars and bibliographers, and various specialised studies of the folio (books on the book) have been written. As with Shakespeare's First Folio, the typesetting of individual compositors and the work of individual printers has been traced and analysed – including that of Susan Islip, one of the rare instances of a female printer in the 17th century."
