GROENVELT, Joannes (John GREENFIELD or GROENVELD).
[40], 363, [3] pp.First English edition of a treatise on the medicinal use of Spanish fly (Lytta vesicatoria, traditionally classified in the family Canthardiae). Joannes Groenevelt (1648-1715/16)) was a Dutch-born physician, practising in London from 1675 on. Spanish fly was known for centuries as an aphrodisiac, but was also extremely dangerous, overdoses sometimes causing death. Greenfield, as he called himself in England, strongly advocated the use of Spanish fly, primarily for the treatment of gout and of bladder and kidney diseases. One of his patients accused him of malpractice and Groenvelt was fined and sent to Newgate prison, but obtained permanent freedom through William III's general pardon in 1691. He published the present treatise on the use of Spanish fly as a vindication of his methods. It includes a laudatory poem by Bernard Mandeville, detailed descriptions of the various medicinal uses of Spanish fly, followed by medical observations and several recipes.l Blake, p. 187; ESTC T64914; for the author: Cook, "Groenevelt, Joannes (bap. 1648, d. 1715/16)", in: ODNB (online ed.).

COEHOORN, Menno van.
[38], 261, [1] pp. plus plates.Second French edition of one of the greatest classics of the art of fortification, in the same year as the first French edition but with an additional plate, by the Master General of the artillery Menno van Coehoorn. The new plate added for the present edition shows about 165 tiny figures, numbered 1-145, A-P and about 4 unnumbered, and the text of the "avertissement" refers to these numbers and letters. While the Dutch had established themselves as the greatest masters of fortification during the Eighty Years' War for Dutch independence from Spain, the art did not stand still after peace came temporarily in 1648. Although a few Dutch engineers spoke out for reform, the Frenchman Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) was to dominate the field with his fortifications, defensive and especially offensive strategies. Van Coehoorn (1641-1704), his only major rival, took a very different approach, more practical than theoretical, with his great fortification manual in 1685. He deployed troops more actively in the defence of fortifications and tailored his designs and strategies to the particular features of the site.With library stamps. Further with a tear in one plate, occasional spotting and small stains, but otherwise in very good condition. Second French edition, adding a new plate with about 165 figures, of a classic of Dutch fortification.l Jähns, p. 1385; Jordan 742 (14 plates); Sloos, Warfare 8076 (14 plates); not in STCN.

POCOCKE, Edward.
XV, [1 blank], 573, [3 blank] pp.Second edition of Pococke's elaborate Specimen historiae Arabum, an excerpt from Abu'l-Faraj's Islamic history, in Arabic and Latin. The excerpt is "accompanied by a lengthy commentary (printed first in 1648) illuminating Islamic history, geography, mythology, religion, and literature from a wealth of sources, mostly unpublished and previously unknown in Europe. It represents a revolution in Arabic studies, being Pococke's attempt to show that far from being a mere ancillary to biblical exegesis, Arabic literature (in the widest sense) was worthy of study in its own right in the same way that classical cultures were. It is his greatest work, and of permanent scholarly value" (Toomer). Abu'l-Faraj's account is followed by unpublished fragments, in Arabic, of Abu'l-Fida's account of pre-Islamic Arabia, edited by Sylvestre de Sacy.From the library of the Ducs de Luynes, with their bookplate on pastedown. Foxed, leaf Y4 with tear, otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed.l Schnurrer 169; for Pococke: Toomer, "Pococke, Edward (1604-1691)", in: ODNB (online ed).

CAUSÉ, Hendrik.
First editions of two of the finest 17th-century Dutch gardening books, usually found together and both with high quality engravings in crisp impressions. The work by the Dutch engraver Hendrik Causé (1648-1691) presents a clear and succinct account of the luxury gardening in the 17th-century Netherlands, including the cultivation of many new exotic species. It is divided into four parts, the first treats (fruit) trees, the second other plants and flowers the third contains designs for gardens and labyrinths, and the fourth treats herbs. Causé describes in his work some 450 plants with details for cultivation. He was also the engraver of the fine plates, which "are sharp and very well cut, though the plants are clearly reminiscent of [Chrispijn] vande Pas" (Hunt).The second work is a treatise on the culture of oranges and lemons, by the Dutch botanist Jan Commelin (1629-1692): an important document for the history of hothouse cultivation in northern Europe. An unillustrated English translation was published in 1683. The 20 superb engravings after C. Kick show citrus fruits. The other 6 engravings show hothouses and methods of growing trees in tubs and pots.Only some wear to the edges of several of the plates and endpapers, otherwise in very good condition.l Anglo Dutch garden 157 & 120; Arnold arboretum, pp. 146 & 167; Hunt 344-345; Nissen, BBI 339 & 390; Paradisus Batavus 57; Stiftung für Botanik 127.

ROBERTS, A.
[8], "252" [= 254], [2] pp.First edition of an extraordinary account of an English merchant mariner's capture by Barbary pirates in or soon after 1648 and his subsequent adventures as a slave in Algeria. It is presented as an authentic journal of T[homas?] S[mith?], posthumously prepared for the press by his friend A. Roberts. The author is certainly well-informed on the Ottomans in Africa and his story may be partly based on true events, but many of the details are clearly fantasy, with monstrous beasts and people turned to stone, in addition to tall tales of his own adventures. In the story he sets off from the Thames in the Hamburg merchant ship Sancta Maria in July 1648 and the ship is captured by Barbary pirates soon after. As a slave under numerous masters the author tricks his way into employment as cook to the King of Algiers, is then demoted to keeper of the King's bath and secretly fathers a daughter with one of the King's wives. After an unsuccessful stint as a gardener's assistant he journeys in the service of an Ottoman officer, collecting tribute money with the Algerian army, and offers his services as an advisor to the Ottoman governor of Tlemcen (northwest Algeria). With an owner's initials, manuscript bookplates and library stamps. In good condition, very slightly browned and with a small chip at the head of two leaves, affecting only the page numbers. First edition of an English merchant's marvellous adventures in Ottoman Africa.l Cox I, p. 362; Playfair, Algeria 155; Playfair, Morocco 244; Wing S152.

Blaeu-- Joan
Kopergravure in de tijd met de hand gekleurd, uitgegeven te Amsterdam ca. 1648 door Joan Blaeu, (1596-1673). Afmetingen (prent) ca. 45 x 57 cm.Uit Blaeu's atlas "Toneel der Steden van de Verenigde Nederlanden met hare beschrijvingen"?, verschenen op 5 juni 1648, de datum waarop de vrede van munster een einde maakte aan de tachtig jarige oorlog. Blaeu gebruikte de grote gravure van Jacques de Geyn's zeilwagen uit 1603, (noordwaarts, naar rechts rijdend) als voorbeeld voor zijn eigen prent. Op een dag tussen 13 april en 23 mei 1602 maakte prins Maurits in gezelschap van 27 gasten een tocht met zijn zeilwagen (ook wel "?landjacht' genoemd) van Scheveningen naar Petten, 14 Hollandse mijlen, met prinselijk vaandel in top. Tot de inzittenden van het voertuig, dat was uitgevonden Simon Stevin, behoorden o.a. de toen 19-jarige studievriend van Frederik Hendrik, Hugo de Groot, de Frans ambassadeur in Den Haag Paul Choart de Buzanval, de bij Nieuwpoort gevangen genomen Francis de Mendoza, generaal in het leger van aartshertog Albert van Oostenrijk, Ulric van Holstein, broer van de Deense koning Christiaan IV en Frederik Hendrik. De zeilwagen kon het traject Schevingen-Petten alleen afleggen met een sterke zuidwestenwind over de smalle, vrij gladde strook zand tussen de zee en de duinen. Het voertuig kon een snelheid bereiken van meer da 50 kilometer per uur. Rechts in beeld twee ruiters in galop. Deze zullen wel zijn ingeschakeld om aan te tonen dat de wagen zich veel sneller kon verplaatsen, dan dat met een paard mogelijk was.

With a double-page engraved plate with 6 views of the ship at fire and in a storm, the islands St. Mary, Samatra and Princes Eyland, and an image of flying fishes. Modern marbled wrappers. [4], 76 pp. One of the most compelling and entertaining travel accounts of Dutch literature, in one of the earliest and most important editions, the first to be published by Hartgers. Bontekoe details his eventful 8-year voyage to the East Indies. The vivid description of his ship accidently exploding in the Sunda Strait, killing almost a third of the crew, no doubt made a huge impression on his readers. Bontekoe returned in 1625, but his travelogue was not published until 1646. It was an immediate success and went through numerous editions. From the beginning Raven's short account of a voyage to Greenland, during which he too suffered shipwreck, was added to Bontekoe's voyage. Almost all editions of Bontekoe's narrative are rare. Jan Jansz.

It was the first public doolhof, founded by the wine merchant and inn-keeper Vincent Jacobsz. Coster at the beginning of the 17th century. The Doolhof was a sculpture garden with a labyrinth, exhibiting fountains, sculptures and automata, showing historical, mythical and biblical figures and spectacles.

With 686 woodcuts, many full-page, by Christoph van Sichem (many with his monogram), after his own designs and after drawings and paintings by Aldegrever, Goltzius, Dürer, Bloemaert, the Wierix brothers, Lucas van Leyden, Maarten van Heemskerck, Joannes Stradanus, etc. 17th-century vellum, manuscript title on smooth spine. 800, [4] pp. First and only edition of a Catholic devotional book on the life of Christ (in 5 numbered parts), the works of the Apostles, saints' lives, and religious emblems, perhaps the most richly illustrated woodcut book of the 17th century, with almost 700 woodcuts by Van Sichem, when one includes the 7 large ornamental woodcuts with putti, beasts, insects and flowers. Van Sichem may also have cut the numerous woodcut decorated initials with biblical figures, appearing mostly in the works of the Apostles. The book's title may have been influenced by an otherwise unrelated work published in the previous year, Den schat der zielen, an unillustrated translation of a work apparently first written in Catalan by Miguel Comalada, which saw later editions as well. The present work is built entirely around Van Sichem's extraordinary woodcuts. Christoffel van Sichem (ca. 1581-1658), the second and most important of four artists of that name, was one of the greatest woodbl … [Click Below for Full Description]

The work includes an almost verbatim report by Bernard Dwingelo of the acts of the Synod of Dordrecht (1618-1619), which ended with the official condemnation and banishment of the Arminians, also known as Remonstrants.

Arminius's more liberal views were opposed by his strict Calvinist colleague Franciscus Gomarus (1563-1641).Title-page slightly browned and thumbed, boards rubbed along the extremities.

Appended are Potanus's description of Java (pp. 57-61) and, with its own drop-title, an account of Steven vander Hagen's second voyage to the East Indies (pp. 62-96), first published in 1606.

He sailed from Veere in Zeeland on 5 May 1601. In November he rounded the Cape of Good Hope to reach Ceylon (Sri Lanka) in May 1602. Until September the fleet was anchored at Batticaloa on Ceylon's east coast where Spilbergen negotiated with the king of Kandi, promising him military assistance against the Portuguese.

Contemporary or near-contemporary calf. The decoration on the binding is believed to have been executed in Bologna ca. 1880/1900 by a group of forgers: each board with the same scene, showing 2 women in Ottoman costume, one kneeling to play a qanun (Turkish zither) at left and the other perhaps dancing at right, framed by drapery as though on a stage, with a crescent moon and 5-pointed star in each corner and the name "IBRAHIM" at upper left, the whole in a frame of double fillets. The figures' skin is painted white and the clothes and drapery red and green. The crescent moon and star repeat in spine compartments 1 and 3-5. [32], "595" [= 535], [69], [4 blank] pp. including the integral engraved title-page. A second-century history, in the original Latin, celebrating the glory of the city, republic and empire of Rome and their people from the city's mythical foundation by Romulus to the early years of the reign of Augustus (Emperor 27 BC-AD 14). It appears here in the first edition edited by Nicolaes Blanckaert the younger (1624-1703).The most remarkable feature of the present copy is its pseudo-Ottoman binding, formerly described as a contemporary binding made in Venice. In 1997 Anthony Hobson identified six remarkable bindings, including the present one, that he concluded were produced in the 1880's or 90's by a group of forgers in Bologna who had also forged other less spectacular bindin … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition, in the original German, of an extensive, influential and extremely well illustrated treatise on fortification, by the Brandenburg fortifications engineer Matthias Dögen (1605/06-1672) who worked in service of the Dutch stadholder and Prince of Orange, Frederik Hendrik van Nassau (1584-1647) during the Eighty Years' War. The first half of the main text covers fortifications in regular shapes and the second half irregular shapes, while a shorter second part covers defensive and especially offensive tactics in siege warfare. Many of the plates show fortifications of cities in the Low Countries built following the newly developed Dutch methods, including Amsterdam, Breda and Ostend, but fortifications following the more traditional European and Ottoman methods are also included, such as Le Havre and Saint Malo.With early owners' inscriptions. Lacking 1 unnumbered double-page plate (Nova Palma), and with another detached. For some reason, the Nova Palma plate is often lacking. With a water stain at … [Click Below for Full Description]

Oorspronck ende voortganck der Nederlantsche kerckelijcke verschillen tot op 't Nationale Synodus van Dordrecht.Amsterdam, Cornelis de Leeuw, 1648. 2 parts in 1 volume. Small folio (28.5 x 19.5 cm). 18th-century half vellum. [29], 56, [1 blank], 13, 227 ll. Very rare re-issue, enlarged with an index and several documents, of a history of the Dutch religious controversies that arose during the Twelve Years Truce. The work includes an almost verbatim report by Bernard Dwingelo of the acts of the Synod of Dordrecht (1618-1619), which ended with the official condemnation and banishment of the Arminians, also known as Remonstrants. The main issue had been the Calvinist article of faith regarding the issue of predestination, which was rejected by the Leiden theologian Jacob Arminius (1560-1609). Arminius's more liberal views were opposed by his strict Calvinist colleague Franciscus Gomarus (1563-1641).Title-page slightly browned and thumbed, boards rubbed along the extremities. Overall in very good condition. Knuttel, Kerkgeschiedenis, p. 242; Rogge, Remonstr. geschr., p. 96; STCN (2 copies).

With a engraved illustration of a labyrinth on title-page, an engraved plate by P. Holsteyn after A. Vinckenbrinck, 3 engravings in text and a folding engraved plate of David & Goliath. Modern marbled wrappers. [8] ll. Extremely rare third edition, the first with poems by Jan Vos and double the size of the two earlier editions, of a description (intended as souvenir) of the "Oude Doolhof" (literally: old labyrinth) of Amsterdam, a sort of amusement park at the Looiersgracht. It was the first public doolhof, founded by the wine merchant and inn-keeper Vincent Jacobsz. Coster at the beginning of the 17th century. The Doolhof was a sculpture garden with a labyrinth, exhibiting fountains, sculptures and automata, showing historical, mythical and biblical figures and spectacles. The booklet was first published ca. 1645 by Crispyn Passe the younger in 4 leaves, and other versions followed soon after. For the present edition one full-page and one folding engraved plate were added, together with poems by Jan Vos (1612-1667), the most popular Dutch playwright of his time.With the outer corner of the foot of the title-page and the first plate torn off and two minor waterstains on the title-page, otherwise in very good condition.

FLORUS, Lucius Annaeus.
[Epitome rerum Romanarum].Leiden, Adriaen Wijngaerden (colophon: printed by Philippe de Croy), 1648. 8vo (18 x 12 x 3 cm). With an engraved allegorical title-page by Cornelius van Dalen. Contemporary or near-contemporary calf. The decoration on the binding is believed to have been executed in Bologna ca. 1880/1900 by a group of forgers: each board with the same scene, showing 2 women in Ottoman costume, one kneeling to play a qanun (Turkish zither) at left and the other perhaps dancing at right, framed by drapery as though on a stage, with a crescent moon and 5-pointed star in each corner and the name "IBRAHIM" at upper left, the whole in a frame of double fillets. The figures' skin is painted white and the clothes and drapery red and green. The crescent moon and star repeat in spine compartments 1 and 3-5. [32], "595" [= 535], [69], [4 blank] pp. including the integral engraved title-page. A second-century history, in the original Latin, celebrating the glory of the city, republic and empire of Rome and their people from the city's mythical foundation by Romulus to the early years of the reign of Augustus (Emperor 27 BC-AD 14). It appears here in the first edition edited by Nicolaes Blanckaert the younger (1624-1703).The most remarkable feature of the present copy is its pseudo-Ottoman binding, formerly described as a contemporary binding made in Venice. In 1997 Anthony Hobson identified six remarkable bindings, including the present one, that he concluded were produced in the 1880's or 90's by a group of forgers in Bologna who had also forged other less spectacular bindin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gimignani, Giacinto (1606-1681)
"According to a recent publication by Loredana Lorizzo, this scene representing S. Philip Neri in adoration of the infant Jesus at the presence of Mary and Joseph was very dear to the painter Giacinto Gimignani for he included the original painting in his own will. As Lorizzo argues, the painting must have been realized in 1648 to celebrate the birth of his son, named after the saint. In his 'post mortem' inventory (1680) Gimignani mentions a plate with ""S. Philip with the Madonna"" which is most likely the plate used for this impression.The etching at the Casanatense reproduced in Lorizzo's article presents some discrepancies with ours. The inscriptions are the clearest difference: the name of the Saint is reported on the stairs where he is kneeling [S.FILIPPO NERI] and on the bottom right is the address of the publisher: [Si Stampa da Vincenzo Billij alla Chiesa nova. Hycinthus Gimignianus Inven. 1649]. The illustrated impression, preserved at the Casanatense Library in Rome, results much smaller in respect to ours, as it was cut before publishing. Also, the treatment of light and shadow in the Casanatense impression is more dramatic, realized with intense crosshatchings in the darker areas. Our impression is more delicate and it is thus a remarkable state, possibly the first.Our impression was cut to the plate mark and pasted on a thick sheet of laid paper. On the bottom left, in pen and brown ink a different attribution is given: 'Carlo Morato fecit', possibly pointing to Carlo Maratta, a painter in the same circle of Gimignani.The space left blank under the compositio … [Click Below for Full Description]
