      Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 381; Tiele, Bibl. 159; Tiele, Mém. 173; Verkruijsse & Verhoeven 1648-03. One of the most compelling and entertaining travel accounts of Dutch literature. 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. This edition is a page-for-page reprint of an edition published by Hartgers in the same year. The original edition appeared at Hoorn in 1646, printed by Isaac Willemsz. for Jan Jansz. Deutel.A bit cut short; the two corners at the bottom of the plate gone, hardly affecting the plate. Good copy of the vivid description of Bontekoe's voyage to the East Indies.

(François Chauveau) et d'une figure, sans doute du même. Ce frontispice est le même que celui des premières parties déjà éditées. Achevé d'imprimer du 20 mai 1649. L'édition sera achevée en 8 parties (la huitième semblant avoir été éditée de manière posthume après 1660) et se poursuivra jusqu'en 1653 pour l'édition originale de la dernière partie ; toutes ces parties seront éditées séparément.

        THIRTY YEARS' WAR: An Important Signed Reconnaissance Letter Addressed to the Imperial Field Marshal Piccolomini from Colonel W. Fisch Dated 12th July 1648.]

      Gloz (Klodzko/Glatz) 1648 - Gloz (Klodzko/Glatz), 12th July 1648. Folio (32x21cm). Text, one page of a folio bifolium. Original fold marks and some mount residue on verso, but overall a very good letter. Colonel Fisch reports that Swedish General Wittenberg had amassed about 5,000 men and 20 cannons in the Principality of Liegnitz between Konradswalde and Schoenfeld and was marching forward. Wittenberg had passed Weisswasser and united with the troops of Major General Müller. According to statements made by prisoners of war, a further advance to Troppau was planned. This letter gives important information about troop movements immediately leading up to the final battle of the Thirty Years War at Prague (25 July - 1 November 1648). Ottavio Piccolomini (1599-1656) was an Italian nobleman whose military career included service as a Spanish general and then as a field marshal of the Holy Roman Empire (Wikipedia).

        Sylva sylvarum, sive historia naturalis, in decem centurias distributa

Add. engr. t.-p., [34], 612, [48], 87, [1] pp.. 1648 Compendium of scientific (and also quaintly "traditional") knowledge: This wide-ranging gathering of interesting observations in natural history was first published posthumously by the author's chaplain and secretary, Dr. Rawley, in 1626, and appears here translated into Latin by Jacob Gruterus. The present edition was, as Willems puts it, "exécutée" at Leyden by Hackius for Elzevier; some examples bear Elzevier's imprint and some Hackius's.

        Biblia, Dat is, de gantsche H. Schrifture vervattende alle de Boecken des Ouden ende Nieuwen Testaments.

      Amsterdam: Gedruckt by Rieuwert Dircksz van Baardt 1648 - "The Visscher Bible." Dutch Lutheran Bible with Maps. Folio. Size of binding: 9 ½ in. x 16 in; size of pages: 9 in. x 14 ¾ in. [18], 278, 112, 70, 132 leaves. With engraved pictorial title page, indices, engraved tail piece with the 1648 date. Frontispiece is an engraving of Martin Luther; also an engraving of Adolphus Visscher is mounted to the reverse of the title page. Contemporary full leather binding over oak boards. Blind-stamped with designs. Corners and clasp-holders in thick brass. Seven hand-colored, double-paged maps, one of which is the Stellatum Planisphaerium (Planisphere)by Ludovico (Louis) Vlasblom; this map of the solar system is the original state (Later states included the name Johannes van Keulen). The other six (maps or views of cities) are by members of the Visscher family, with the engravings done by various artists. (The Visscher maps are: [1] Orbis terrarum tabula recens emendada (The World) [2] Die gelegentheyt van 't paradys ende 't landt Canaan, mitsgaders de eerst bewoonde landen per patriarchen. (Paradise) [3] Perigrinatie oste veertichiarige reyse der kinderen Israëls. (The Perigrinations) [4] De heylige en wytvermaerde stad Ierusalem eerst genaemt Salem. (Jerusalem) [5] Hey beloofde landt Canaan door wandelt van onsen Salichmaecker Iesu Christo, nessens syne apostelen. (The Promised Land Canaan) [6] Geographische beschryvinghe van de wandeling der apostelen ende de reysen Pauli. (The Travels of St. Paul). Some details of these maps are fascinating: e.g., on the world map, the northwest coast of North America is greatly exaggerated, and California is shown as a peninsula. The Visscher maps and the Planisphere are all delicately and contemporaraneously hand-colored, with some details highlighted in gold. Woodcut tailpieces; large and small decorative and initials. Printed title pages for the Prophets and New Testament. Bookseller's catalog entry pasted to inner front cover. Birth notation in ink on front paste-down with a date in 1712. Spine and spine ends show some typical wear. The Planisphere shows a small split to the center of the lower edge where it is attached. This is the famous Bible which became standard for Dutch Lutherans. Very few existing copies still have the hand-colored maps. Some light damp staining to the upper margins of some pages, not affecting the maps. Dutch text. Weight: 11 ½ lbs. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The REGALL APOLOGY: or, The declaration of the Commons, Feb. 11. 1647. Canvassed.  Wherein Every Objection, and their whole Charge against His Majesty is cleared, and for the most part, retorted.

      [London]: Printed in the yeare, 1648. [2], 92, [2 (blank)] pp. Bate, "physician and author, was born in Maids Moreton, Buckinghamshire, in 1608, the son of John Bate of Burton. On 20 February 1624, aged fifteen, he matriculated at New College, Oxford, where he was one of the college clerks. Migrating to Queen's College and then to St Edmund's, Bate graduated BA in 1626 and MA and BA in 1629, the latter giving him licence to practise around Oxford, and DM in 1637. Early observers may have labelled him a puritan, but when Charles I established the court in Oxford Bate became a member of the royal party, and was made physician to the king. Settling in London by 1639 Bate became a fellow of the College of Physicians in 1640 and served as censor in 1645, 1646, and 1648, and was named an elect in 1657. In 1656 he was part of the board of physicians which recommended the establishment of college of physicians in Edinburgh. However, Bate is best known for his published defence of Charles I in his confrontation with parliament. The Regall Apology, or, The Declaration of the Commons, written in English, was first published in Paris and London in 1648" [ODNB] and is here offered in the first edition. Bound with 2 other Royalist publications from 1648; Filmer's GRAND INQUEST [TavBooks ID #39974] & Claredon's ANSWER [TavBooks ID #39997]. Price is for the one volume containing all 3 titles. T.p. with period inked annotation quoting a Roman Tribune regarding 'force of armes'. Slight bow to boards. Front joint starting at top 1-1/2". Spine gilt flaking to a small degree. A VG copy.

      [London]: Printed in the three and twentiety year of the Raign of our Soveraign Lord King Charles, [1648]. [8], 64 pp. Freeholder "is the prime source for Filmer's constitutional doctrines and is of great interest as a statement of Royalist absolutism. ... The contents of this tract are of interest to the constitutional historian for two reasons. First, it illustrates the great importance of the work of scholars of the period to the constitutional controversies. Secondly, it shows that Royalist absolutism was worked out in detail before the Civil War ...." [Laslett. PATRIARCHA, p. 128].

      Paris: Pierre Des-Hayes, 1648. [xviii], 342 pages of text. Defective copy, lacking five plates, the frontis, and a final engraved table. Attractive early-to-mid-18th century leather binding with moderate wear to the hinges, spine extremities, and corners. Raised bands, gilt tooling and lettering on spine. Decorative marbled endpapers and blank endsheets supplied at time of binding. Present is the full-page engraved portrait of Michel Larcher, engraved armorial dedication to Larcher, and the engraved title page following page 58. A complete copy has the plate numbers 151 and 156 used twice, totalling 158 plates showing plans and designs of perspective, of which 153 only are present in this copy. Lacks plate numbers 110, 151 (both), 154, and 155. However, early hand-drawn facsimiles of plates 151 (one of two) and 155 are supplied and bound-in, leaving three images unrepresented. The majority of the plates are double-sided. Plate 156 is in less than good condition, with heavy staining and soiling. Engraved title page is repaired with early conservator's tape, with no loss. Pages 168 through 193 are bound out of order. Several leaves are affected by damp staining and minor rippling; approximately 15 front and 30 rear. The title page and several adjacent leaves as well as a few at the rear of the text are heavily stained. Some of the staining appears to originate from washed-out markings -- notations to which an attempt at removal were made -- that are in blank areas (mainly in the front and rear pages, but also in the blank areas in the introduction). Includes Desargues New Theory at the end, with demonstrations. Protected in a modern (circa 1950) slipcase, decorated with marbled endpaper, the seams of which are detached at the top edge. Desargues (1593-1661) was a French mathemetician, and a founder of modern Geometry. With Pascal, he introduced the method of perspective; treated conic sections as projections of circles, formulated the so-called Arguesian transformation; developed the theory of involution and of transversals; defined parallels as lines that intersect at infinity. Measures 6-5/8" tall by 4-1/2" wide; printed on thick paper, with ample margins. 20th century bookplate of Paul and Verner Mac Alister on front pastedown, and a neatly handwritten identification on the 2nd front endpaper. On the same leaf is a contemporary name or marking. French, France, Fortifications, Conics, Cartography, Projective and Descriptive Geometry. Early editions of Desargues works are quite uncommon.. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good- condition. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall.

        Rime di diversi ecc. Autori, in vita, e in morte dell'Ill. S. Livia Col.

      In 8vo (cm 15); pergamena rigida del Settecento con tassello e titolo in oro al dorso, tagli azzurri; cc. (4), 137 [i.e. 136], (6). Con il ritratto di Livia Colonna inciso in legno sul frontespizio, al verso della carta 77 e sull'ultima carta. Capilettera figurati. Carattere corsivo. Sul titolo firma di appartenenza del recanatese G.F. Grifonelli, autore della tragicommedia Gl'infelici amori (1648) (cfr. C. Benedettucci, Biblioteca recanatese, Recanati, 1884, p. 32). Ottima copia su carta forte.EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, dedicata dall'editore Francesco Cristiani al cardinale di Ferrara, di questa raccolta di rime di vari autori in memoria di Livia Colonna (1522 - 1554), figlia di Marcantonio Colonna, la quale, contro il volere del cugino Ascanio, fu rapita e data in sposa a Marzio Colonna e successivamente, il 21 gennaio 1554, per questioni di interesse fu spietatamente assassinata dal genero Pompeo Colonna, che con rapido processo fu condannato a morte e scomunicato, ma senza che la condanna venisse mai eseguita (cfr. G.L. Masetti Zannini, Livia Colonna, in: "Studi offerti a G. Incisa della Rocchetta", Roma, 1973, pp. 314 - 321). «In 1539, during the papacy of Paul III, Livia was abducted by her cousin, Marzio Colonna of the Zagarola branch, who hopes to use rape as a means to marriage and a fine dowry. However Ascanio refused to dower his niece because of his feud with the Zagarola Colonna, and this decision trapped the young Livia in a forced marriage with no wealth of her own to give her leverage. She had been left a widow at twenty - four by the premature death of Marzio. Around 1549 Livia attracted the attention of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese (1520 - 1589). In a letter to Francesco Maria Molza, Annibal Caro described Fausta Mancini, the wife of the banker Paolo Attavanti, and her rival Livia Colonna, as 'the two betrayers' adding that they 'are well aware that they are considered to be the most beautiful women in Rome, and each of them, as you know, has her faction of lovers, admirers and fans'. The Cardinal lost his head over her, but still did not fail to observe convention. Seeking to disguise his passion behind a familiar Petrarchan mask, he mobilised all the poets in his service - this to the dismay of his favourite, Giovanni della Casa, who nostalgically recalled in a letter to Gandolfo Porrino (one of the author's included in the anthology), his patron's earlier taste for courtesans, when he could fix everything with the gift of a rosary, instead of wracking his brain to conceal a compromising affair under the veil of appropriate verse. The four sonnets which Alessandro eventually produced were evidently appreciated by Della Casa. The Cardinal even allowed them to be published in the present anthology without any reference to his own person. By this time his passion was long spent, and Livia herself was dead, having fallen victim in 1554 to the knives of assassins hired by her own father - in - law, Pompeo Colonna» (D. Robin, Publishing women: Salons, the Presses, and the Counter - Reformation in Sixteenth Century Italy, Chicago, IL, 2007, pp. 108, 298, nr. 20). «Alla pura letteratura Dionigi sarebbe ricorso di nuovo a ridosso del suo trasferimento, facendo tesoro di esperienze pregresse, singolarmente vicine a quella che è oggetto di questo note [Rime di diversi nobilissimi et eccellentissimi autori, in morte della Signora Irene delle Signore di Spilimbergo (Venezia, 1561)]. Entro questa cornice si dovranno collocare appunto alcuni importanti antesignani della raccolta per Irene. La prima appare in Roma nel 1555 col titolo di Rime di diversi ecc. autori in vita e in morte dell'Illustr. Sig. Livia Colonna, esperienza di ambito romano, modellata sulla divisione petrarchesca in due sezioni "in vita e in morte", e più in generale su un canone metrico e poetico che mi pare di stretta osservana bembiana (A. Corsaro, Dionigi Atanagi e la silloge per Irene di Spilimbergo. (Intorno alla formazione del giovane Tasso), in: "Italica", vol. 75, nr. 1, primavera, 1998, pp. 43). La raccolta comprende componimenti (sonetti, canzoni ed un'elegia in endecasillabi sciolti) di G. della Casa, A. Caro, G. Porrino, B. Cappello, G. Marmitta, D. Atanagi, G. Goselini, dello stesso F. Cristiani e molti altri. Il Cristiani fu poeta ed editore a Roma, dove si servì della tipografia di Antonio Barré. Edit16, CNCE30786. Adams, C - 2415. \

III,153; Willems 1066; Garrison-Morton 665 - FIRST COLLECTED EDITION; second edition of Opuscula medica inaudita. "Helmont was one of the founders of biochemistry. He was the first to realize the physiological importance of ferments and gases, and indeed invented the word 'gas'. He introduced the gravimetric idea in the analysis of urine. The above work is a collection of his writings, issued by his son" (Garrison-Morton). "Helmont devoted his life to exploring the first principles of nature through chemistry. He is best remembered as the discoverer of gas, a term he coined to describe the 'specific smokes' that remain after the combustion of solids and fluids; among the gases he identified were carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, chlorine gas and sulphur dioxide. He denied that metals dissolved in acid were either destroyed or transmuted, stating that such metals were recoverable in their original quantities, and correctly identifying the process of precipitation. Like Paracelsus, he rejected traditional humoral pathology and advocated an ontological concept of disease, regarding each disease as a specific entity caused by a specific pathogenic agent. He demonstrated that acid is the agent in animal digestion and came near to identifying it as hydrochloric acid; he also identified the causes of asthma and correctly described fever as a part of the body's natural healing process. Though separately paginated 'Opuscula medica inaudita' is considered a part of the whole volume, as indicated by the 'Index tractatum' on 5*5 - 5*6. Originally published as a separate work in 1644, 'Opuscula medica inaudita' contains reprints of Helmont's treatises on the stone, on fevers, on the errors of humoral pathology, and on the plague" (Norman 1048).

COMPLETE. FINE CONTEMPORARY DUTCH BINDING BY THE AMSTERDAM "QUATREFOIL BINDERY." -- This is a highly curious 17th-century Dutch binding of a rare type: for obvious reasons, these texts would have been used only by a member of the Anglican church. According to Jan Storm van Leeuwen (private communication), the present binding belongs to the Amsterdam Quatrefoil Bindery ("Vierpasbinderij"), active from 1675-1725 (see van Leeuwen Vol. I, pp. 199-217). The present binding was certainly executed very near the date of publication 1682. Fine examples of 17th-century English Prayer books in elaborately decorated Dutch bindings are very uncommon. The British Library possesses two fine Dutch bindings on English imprints -- neither are sacred texts -- namely: Thomas Herbert, Numismata antiqua (London, 1746) bound by the Van Damme Bindery (BL 138B10) and Gabriele Faerno, Fabulae centum (London, 1743) bound by the Double Drawer Handle Tools Bindery (BL 141C11). COLLATIONS: Ad 1 (Book of Common Prayer): A16 [para]2 B-D18 E12 = 80 ff. NOT IN ESTC: the distinctive collation and imprint is simply not recorded therein. Ad 2 (Bible): A-Y18 Z6 Aa2 = 808 pp. Darlow & Moule 615. Ad 3 (Book of Psalms): A-B18 = 36 ff. ESTC R35754. LITERATURE: Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch decorated bookbinding in the eighteenth century, vol. I, pp. 199-217.

        Eikon Basilike

      1648. CHARLES I. Eikon Basilike. The Pourtraicture of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Suffering. Engraved Frontispiece. [8], 270 pp. 12mo., bound in early nineteenth-century calf. [London: Royston], 1648 (1649). |~||~||~||~||~| First issue of the third edition, and the last published by Royston towards the middle of March, less than two month's after the King's execution. First published in 1649, at the time of Charles I's execution, the Eikon Basilike soon became one of the most widely read works of royalist propaganda from the English Civil War with thirty five editions printed by year end. In the same year Milton, as Latin Secretary to Cromwell, published Eikonoklastes, refuting the Eikon Basilike paragraph by paragraph and criticizing public support of the work. Regarding doubts of Charles' authorship, which arose very soon after publication, Francis Madan has suggested that the work was probably composed by the King in stages, beginning in 1642, with the assistance of Dr. Gauden an Exeter Clergyman. Spine and hinges professionally restored, marginal stain to bottom of last three leafs, still a fine crisp copy. Knachel, Introduction to Eikon Basilike, p. xv. Drabble, Oxford Companion to English Literature, p. 309.
