        Historia naturalis Brasiliae, ... in qua non tantum Plantae et Animalia, sed et indigenarum morbi, ingenia et mores describuntur...

      1648. Lugdun. Batavorum et Amstelodami, F. Hackium apud L. Elzevirium, 1648. Folio (397 x 248mm). pp. (xii, including frontispiece), 122, (2); (iv), 293, (7), with engraved frontispiece and ca. 500 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments, sides with large gilt English Royal coat of arms of James II and the motto of the English chivalric Order of the Garter 'Honi soit qui mal y pense', and 2 gilt borders (skilful repair to hinges and foot of spine). First edition and a very special copy from the famous John Roland Abbey collection in an English Royal binding of the first major survey of the natural history of Brazil and the most extensive documentation on the Brazilian flora and fauna of the 17th century. It is also a pioneering work on tropical medicine. Landis comments: "This magnificent book, the most noted work of science in seventeenth-century Holland, was a product of that century's Dutch conquest of a portion of Brazil. It remained the one great illustrated work on the natural history of Brazil until the major expeditions of the nineteenth century generated new publications". Willem Piso (1611-1678; Dutch physician) was sent by the Dutch West Indies Company as the leader of the scientific mission to Brazil, where he was accompanied by the German naturalist and traveler Georg Marcgraf (1610-1644). Marcgraf's contributions to the above work are the descriptions and woodcut illustrations of the natural history matter depicting fishes, birds, quadrupeds and serpents as well as insects, and for the larger part plants. The part on the northeastern region of Brazil and the linguistics and ethnography of its inhabitants is followed by an extensive Tupi vocabulary of the Tapuia Indians. The fine pictorial titlepage is engraved after a drawing by Matham, the original of which is in the Albertina Library in Vienna. Provenance: The coat of arms are of James II (1633-1701), as Duke of York. This means that the arms date from before 1685, when James became King, and would have adopted slightly different arms; Armorial bookplate of John Roland Abbey and bookplate of John Henry Gurney. Hunt 244; Nissen BBI, 1533..

        Vida que el el Siervo de Dios Gregorio Lopez hizo en algunos Lugares de la Nueva Espana, principalmente en el pueblo de Santa Fe

      Early missionary work in New Spain. 1648. Madrid. Francisco Nieto. In 4to (207 mm x 145 mm). 8 ff. + portrait + 114 ff. + 2 ff. Contemporary vellum, soiled, endpapers made of waste. Browned throughout, expected for the paper used, some damp staining, wide margins, unsophisticated copy. Fourth edition. The first is virtually unobtainable, printed in 1613 in Mexico. Lopez (1542 ? 1596) was a Spanish missionary and something of a mystery; he travelled to Mexico in 1562, making port at Veracruz at the age of twenty. Shortly after arriving, he left for Mexico City, where he worked for a while before completing his plans to travel to the Zacatecas region and live amongst the Chichimecos Indians. He became a hermit and spent his life amongst Mexican natives in different regions, under suspicion of heresy, apparently not attending Masses and religious services. Overall, Lopez? experiences become one of the earliest accounts of missionary work in New Spain. Little is known, and much is speculated regarding his early life in Spain, some saying he was a member of the nobility, "one of the most successful of the many early missionaries among the Indians, of New Spain, was born at Madrid, July 4th 1542, and is said to have been an illegitimate son of Charles V. or Philip II. At the age of twenty he landed at Vera Cruz, and soon after pitched his tent alone among the Chichimecos Indians. He died on the 20th of July, 1596, at Santa Fé, six miles from Mexico city, where he had been visited in his hermitage by all distinguished visitors to Mexico." (Maggs, 1922, 139). Losa?s account of Lopez? life arose considerable interest, with the work being reprinted several times in the 17th and 18th century centuries; all editions are scarce. Provenance: last folio with ownership inscription "Soy de Pedro de Landa". Palau, 142526. Sabin, 42576. Salva, 3465. Medina, 1120.

        THE ARRAIGNMENT AND CONVICTION OF SR VVALTER RAWLEIGH, AT THE KINGS BENCH-BARRE AT WINCHESTER. ON THE 17. OF NOVEMBER. 1603 . . . COPPIED BY SIR THO: OVERBVRY

      London: Printed by William Wilson for Abel Roper, 1648. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 191 x 133 mm (7 1/2 x 5 1/4"). 1 p.l. (title), 38 pp. FIRST EDITION. Pleasant enough 18th or 19th century polished calf, rebacked (perhaps in the 1970s), flat spine with vertical gilt titling, new endpapers. Title page with early ink ownership inscription of W. Bayntun, Gray's Inn (see below) and with his ink initials "WB" at foot of last page. Rear pastedown with neatly pencilled notes relating to the purchase of the book at Sotheby's by William Stirling Maxwell in 1978: "Estimated at £80/120. I paid £200 + £20 ($436.50)." Wing A-3744; Sabin 67545. Extremities a bit rubbed, a hint of soiling and a handful of small scratches to the covers, faint darkening and minor fraying to edges of title, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent copy, quite clean and fresh internally, and in a solid, very satisfactory binding. This is a rare copy of a text relating to the accusation, in 1603, that Raleigh had conspired with fellow courtier Baron Cobham to facilitate a Spanish invasion to prevent James Stuart from inheriting Elizabeth's throne. Raleigh, never adept at politics, had alienated Elizabeth's powerful secretary, Sir Robert Cecil, and the influential Howard family of Norfolk. Cecil and the Duke of Norfolk lost no opportunity to malign Raleigh to James, and seized upon an unfortunate and characteristically impulsive remark Raleigh made about thwarting the succession to try him for treason. Our "Arraignment" comes from that trial, in which the silver-tongued Raleigh argued so persuasively that at least he won the public to his side. He was convicted in any case and sentenced to be executed, but was instead imprisoned in the Tower to avoid bringing down public ire on the newly-crowned king. An educated poet, courtier, explorer, buccaneer, and one-time favorite of Queen Elizabeth, Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?-1618) lived a life full of adventure and controversy. Among many other things, he had an important intersection with American history as the person who attempted to found Roanoke Colony in Virginia in 1587. After being released from the Tower in 1616, he conducted his second expedition to the New World, sailing in search of the fabled City of Gold, or El Dorado. The venture did not succeed, and, worse, his troops (under the direct command of Lawrence Keymis) attacked and burned the Spanish outpost of San Tomàs after strict royal orders to avoid conflict with the Spaniards. Although he was not directly responsible for the attack, he was nevertheless arrested--for the second time--for treason. As a gesture of appeasement to the Spanish, he was executed on 29 October 1618, becoming a martyred hero ever after to a public antipathetic toward the Spanish (and remaining with unusual immediacy in the loving memory of his wife, who was known to have kept his embalmed head in a red leather bag next to her bed). Although we could find no record of a sale of his library, there is a "Catalogue of Books in the Possession of William Bayntun of Gray's Inn" (said to be created ca. 1768-70) in the Bodleian Library (MSS. Eng. Misc. e. 80-1). Bayntun seems to have been a serious collector: in his "Biography and Typography of William Caxton, England's First Printer," William Blades records an anecdote of our owner Bayntun unwittingly purchasing in the 1770s the only surviving copy of a Caxton incunable (unfortunately from a thief who had taken the book from Cambridge University Library). This is a rare book: since 1978, ABPC records just one other copy at auction.

      Paris: Chez Nicolas & Jean De La Coste, 1648. 8vo. [16], 381, [2], 270pp, [42]. With 16 engraved plates. Nineteenth-century red morocco, gilt, A.E.G. Lightly rubbed to extremities. Some shaving to title, plates and running titles at edges. Occasional marking to text. Bookplate of Kenneth Clark, Saltwood, to FEP. Ink inscriptions in French and English to blank fly-leaves.

From the Heber library, noting purchase at the Pennicott Sale (Sothebys, 1811) with a 7 line inscription detailing the references within to William Bankes' performing horse Marocco. Displayed in Paris during 1601, the spectacle had such an effect on Montlyard as to provoke his mentioning of 'c'est incomparable cheval' in the first (1602) and all subsequent editions of his translation of the Golden Ass. This later formed lot 48 of the 10th portion of the Heber Sale (Sothebys, 1836), finding its way in the twentieth century into the Saltwood castle library of Kenneth Clark. BM STC French 616.

      Apud Arnaldum Colomerium, Regis, & Academiae Tolosanae Typographum, Tolosae [Toulouse] 1648 - A very rare copy of a city pharmacopoeia in possibly contemporary loose vellum wrap. The Pharmaceutical profession was subject to strict regulations from its earliest origins. Reference or formula books were required, guarded, and handed down. In 17th and 18th century France, major cities published their own pharmacopoeia, with 'official' authority. This is the Toulouse pharmacopoiea authored by Pontio Francisco Purpan. It is missing the title page but the contents look otherwise complete with: 3 blank leaves (one looks bright and may have been added at some point); frontispiece by Stuerhelt, with banner 'Dant Sydera Vires'; Dedication by Purpan, 2pp; full page engraving by Stuerhelt; letter by Purpan to a series of nobles 4pp (there is a very well repaired paper tear to the first leaf of the letter); Extract des Registres de Parlement 1p; Catalogue 1p; Lectori 1p; Index Capitum 1p; Codicis Medicamentarii 116pp; 2 blank leaves.

        Original Warrant Signed "Warwicke" as Lord High Admiral of England (for Parliament) during the English Civil War addressed to the Commissioners of the Navy ordering the complete provisioning of the fleet "for the next summer's guard" listing all 44 ships by name beneath

      1648 Handwritten. Good. No Binding. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Warwick House, 6 February 1648. Four pages (two with text). Folio ca. 32,5x22,5 cm (13x9 in). Right margin ragged and soiled, but complete, and with original folds, otherwise in good condition. Warwick's blind stamp (a crown above an anchor) impressed upper left corner. "In 1642, following the dismissal of the Earl of Northumberland as Lord High Admiral, Warwick was appointed commander of the fleet by Parliament" (Wikipedia). Another of Warwick's titles was Lord of the Caribee Islands and he was active in colonial ventures becoming president of the New England Company and a zealous member of the Bermuda and Providence Companies. The warrant replaces an earlier order with this revised list of ships and requires the provision of boatswains' and carpenters' stores for the whole summer's campaign. From the Collection of the 5th Earl of Rosebery. "As the events of 1648 unfolded, some of the ambiguities of Warwick's position appear rather to have deepened than to have diminished. On 27 May 1648 the greater part of the parliamentary fleet in the Downs mutinied against the command of Colonel Thomas Rainsborough, appointed in place of the politically suspect William Batten. Two days later parliament reappointed Warwick to the post of lord high admiral, in the hope that his popularity would secure the fidelity of the sailors" (Oxford DNB)..

        Hermetis, Aegyptiorum, et Chemicorum Sapientia ab Hermanni Conringii animadversionibus Vindicata.Copenhagen: Sumptibus Petri Hauboldi, Reg. Acad. Bibl., 1674.

      First edition, and "one of the few copies having the folding plate illustrating three types of retorts, as well as the four-page dedication to Jean Baptiste Colbert. According to the Wellcome Library catalogue, 'this plate is a copy from a MS. Of Zosimus (ca. 500 A.D.) of the earliest known illustration of distilling apparatus.' In this work Borrichius answers Hermann Conring's <i>De Hermetica Aegyptiorum Medicina</i> (Helmstedt, 1648), wherein the extreme antiquity attributed to alchemy had been seriously doubted. Borrichius's book contains valuable information on the early history of alchemy. The substantial final portion supports Paracelsian theory as applied to medicine. No other editions except this one of 1674 exist. Although several works by Borrichius were reprinted in Magnet's <i>Bibliotheca Chemica Curiosa</i> (Geneva, 1702), this was not among them.<br/><br/> "Ferguson states that there 'were apparently two issues of this book, for I have seen other copies without the dedication and the plate.' Duveen confirms this, his copy being without the plate and dedication. The Wellcome Library catalogue states that this is the second issue, although on what authority I do not know. This issue is very rare." (The Roy G. Neville Historical Chemical Library).. Small 4to (197 x 147 mm), contemporary vellum, pp. [xii], 448 [8:index] and folding engraved plate facing p. 156, light uniform browning throughout, in all avery good copy in its original state

        THE ENGLISH-AMERICAN HIS TRAVAIL BY SEA AND LAND: OR, A NEW SURVEY OF THE WEST-INDIAS [sic], CONTAINING A JOURNALL OF THREE THOUSAND AND THREE HUNDRED MILES WITHIN THE MAIN LAND OF AMERICA

      London. 1648.. [10],220,[12]pp. Small folio. 18th-century speckled calf, gilt stamp on front board, expertly rebacked in antique matching calf, boards re-gilt, leather label, spine gilt. Binding a bit worn at corners and edges. Faint stain on leaves B2 and B3. A few contemporary notes in text, some later pencil notes in margins. Very good. The Signet Library copy, with their gilt stamp on the front board. One of the most celebrated travel books of its day. Gage was an Englishman raised in Spain. He entered the Dominican Order and set out for the New World, traveling by way of the Philippines and across the Pacific. He spent most of the next twelve years in Central America, the West Indies, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Panama. When he finally returned to England and converted to the Church of England, he wrote this book to urge British seizure of the Spanish empire in America. Since the Spanish had jealously guarded foreign access to their dominions, this was the first detailed description to reach Europe of the regions visited by Gage, and it was widely reprinted and translated.

        Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all The Incomparable Peeces, Written By Sir John Svckling. And published by a Friend to perpetuate his memory. Printed by his owne Copies

      1648  Octavo, 7 x 4.75 inches . Second edition.. A4, A-G8, H4, A-E8, F4, A-D8, A-C8, D4. A fine portrait of Suckling Engraved by William Marshall precedes the title.  The leaves are large and clean, with a crisp type impression. They have not been washed or pressed. It is bound in full contemporary sheepskin. Binding and contents are in very good shape. This volume is divided into four parts, each with a separate title-page and pagination. The first contains a medley of poems and songs, a number of letters, and an essay on religion; the other three are plays, "Aglaura," "The Goblins," and "The Tragedy of Brennoralt." At his best, Suckling writes with considerable charm; the song which begins, "Why so pale and wan fond lover" has a permanent place in the language of courtship. There is also a short "supplement" to Shakespeare"s Lucrece. "Sir John Suckling, a Cavalier poet, Suckling's short life was so crowded with activity that the amount of his literary output is remarkable. The son of an old Norfolk family, he seems to have taken his education none too seriously: he left Cambridge without graduating and spent a year at Gray's Inn. His father died when Suckling was 18, and this gave him freedom to seek what adventures he pleased. He was a member of the expedition to the Ile de Re (1627), was in the Netherlands (1629-30), and served under Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden (1631-32). He was knighted in 1630. "A staunch Royalist, Suckling took up arms on the king's behalf in 1639 and 1640 and is believed to have been active in a plot to free the Earl of Strafford from the Tower. It was to the Parliamentary party's advantage to make a 'plot' of the affair and Suckling fled to Paris, where he died in the following year-by his own hand according to John Aubrey. "Suckling was the author of three plays-Aglaura, The Goblins, and Brennoralt-which have never been revived but which contain some good lyrics, notably 'Why so pale and wan, fond lover?' His best work, indeed, is in the form of short pieces, occasional verses and songs, and in the delightful 'A Ballad upon a Wedding.' His expression is direct and robust, reflecting to some degree his lively, pleasure-loving, and tragically short life. His first published collection was A session of the Poets (1637). Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all the Incomparable Pieces, written by Sir John Suckling. And published by a Friend to perpetuate his memory appeared posthumously (1646)."

        Vida que el el Siervo de Dios Gregorio Lopez hizo en algunos Lugares de la Nueva Espana, principalmente en el pueblo de Santa Fe

      1648 - Early missionary work in New Spain. 1648. Madrid. Francisco Nieto. In 4to (207 mm x 145 mm). 8 ff. + portrait + 114 ff. + 2 ff. Contemporary vellum, soiled, endpapers made of waste. Browned throughout, expected for the paper used, some damp staining, wide margins, unsophisticated copy. Fourth edition. The first is virtually unobtainable, printed in 1613 in Mexico. Lopez (1542 &#150; 1596) was a Spanish missionary and something of a mystery; he travelled to Mexico in 1562, making port at Veracruz at the age of twenty. Shortly after arriving, he left for Mexico City, where he worked for a while before completing his plans to travel to the Zacatecas region and live amongst the Chichimecos Indians. He became a hermit and spent his life amongst Mexican natives in different regions, under suspicion of heresy, apparently not attending Masses and religious services. Overall, Lopez&#146; experiences become one of the earliest accounts of missionary work in New Spain. Little is known, and much is speculated regarding his early life in Spain, some saying he was a member of the nobility, &#147;one of the most successful of the many early missionaries among the Indians, of New Spain, was born at Madrid, July 4th 1542, and is said to have been an illegitimate son of Charles V. or Philip II. At the age of twenty he landed at Vera Cruz, and soon after pitched his tent alone among the Chichimecos Indians. He died on the 20th of July, 1596, at Santa Fé, six miles from Mexico city, where he had been visited in his hermitage by all distinguished visitors to Mexico.&#148; (Maggs, 1922, 139). Losa&#146;s account of Lopez&#146; life arose considerable interest, with the work being reprinted several times in the 17th and 18th century centuries; all editions are scarce. Provenance: last folio with ownership inscription &#147;Soy de Pedro de Landa&#148;. Palau, 142526. Sabin, 42576. Salva, 3465. Medina, 1120. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Historis Journael van de Voyage

      Amsterdam,: Joost Hartgers, 1648.. Small quarto, woodcut on title and double-page engraved plate with six vignette illustrations; very faint staining to top corner of some 20 leaves; an excellent copy in contemporary half vellum. Very rare: this Amsterdam printing of two Dutch East Indies Company voyage accounts includes one of remarkably few surviving printed records of Willem Jansz and the Duyfken.This is the fifth edition of this account of Joris van Spilbergen's voyage, first published in 1604. This is, however, the first edition to contain the important supplementary account of the Van der Hagen voyage (see below), which was also the first stage of the Duyfken voyage. It is the only separately published edition of any account of the Van der Hagen voyage - and thus the only separately published record of the voyage that would culminate in the first authenticated sighting of the coast of Australia.The first part of the book deals with Joris van Spilbergen's voyage to Sri Lanka, which was sent out by a group of Zealand merchants in 1601 and successfully established the first trading link between Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. His fleet of three ships visited the Cape of Good Hope and then sailed directly to Sri Lanka, where Spilbergen negotiated with the king of Kandy, promising military assistance against the Portuguese. The narrative of the voyage includes a record of daily events and considerable material on life and customs in Sri Lanka. Earlier editions of Spilbergen's account appeared in Delft in 1604 (several issues) and 1605, and in Amsterdam in 1617. The text also appeared in several of the voyage anthologies that the Dutch made a habit of publishing including Commelin's Begin ende Voortangh of 1645, Hartgers's Oost-Indische Voyagien of 1648 and Saeghman's Verscheyde Oost-Indische Voyagien of 1663-70. The Hartgers anthology appearance is the same as the present volume, which with its own title-page was intended for separate publication as here as well as for inclusion in the compendium volume. This was not the case with the appearance of the text in the Commelin anthology, the various components of which were not separately published and did not have separate title-pages (Tiele, pp. 158-9).Of greater note is that this was the first edition of the Spilbergen account to contain the final 34 pages (it was also the last to do so as the publisher Hartgers dropped it from his subsequent edition of 1652). These pages contain an account of Steven van der Hagen's voyage of 1603, the first voyage sent out to the East entirely under the auspices of the Dutch East India Company or VOC.Van der Hagen sailed in December 1603 with twelve armed vessels taking about 1200 men, with instructions to attack Portuguese trading ports in India, to take Malacca, and to remove the Spanish from the Moluccas. One of these twelve ships was the Duyfken.Van der Hagen and his fleet reconnoitred the west coast of India, concluding a treaty of friendship at Calicut, and then visited several ports of the Malabar coast and Sri Lanka, and anchored for a while at Acheh. They then sailed for Bantam and continued to the Banda Islands. One ship was sent to the Coromandel coast to pick up cargo; it returned to Bantam where it took on supplies to be delivered in the Moluccas.From the Bandas, Van der Hagen proceeded to Amboina, which he took from the Portuguese in February 1605, followed by a successful siege of Spanish positions on Tidore. Van der Hagen subsequently returned to Bantam, where he took on a substantial cargo. In September 1605 the fleet, without the Duyfken and the Delft - both of which stayed in the East Indies - sailed for Holland.The surviving record of Van der Hagen's voyage is very slender. A four-page announcement of his early victories appeared in Rotterdam in 1606 (Tiele 147). A large broadside engraving and text on a single sheet published in Amsterdam in 1606 also celebrated naval victories. An abridged account appears in Hulsius's collection (volume 9, 1606) and in De Bry's anthology Petits Voyages of 1607. Nothing further appeared in print until Commelin's voyage anthology Begin ende Voortangh of 1645. This Hartgers edition, therefore, is the only separately published account of the voyage itself (as opposed to early "news" reports of victories).The Duyfken, now a very familiar ship to us from the reconstruction built to great publicity in the 1990s, makes her simple appearance in the list of the ships with which Van der Hagen's account begins: number 6 of the fleet of 12 is "Het Duyfken, groot 150, lasten/Schipper Willem Iansz" (p. 63).The printed record of the voyage of the Duyfken is remarkably slender: see the summary of surviving accounts xx opposite xxx near xxx catalogue number xxx.Landwehr, 198; Tiele, 1022; Tiele, Memoire, 143.

        Las Obras en verso

      Diego Díaz de la Carrera, Madrid 1648 - Primera edición de esta importante obra de 1648 en Madrid. Precede al título la dedicatoria a Felipe IV. Portada grabada calcográfica: "Iuan Noort f." Texto con apostillas marginales y doble filete. Errores de paginación, de la p. 301 pasa a la 304 y de la 351 a la 362. Francisco de Borja y Aragón (1581-1658) Príncipe de Esquilache por su matrimonio, nieto de San Francisco de Borja, fue militar y político. Virrey del Perú donde fundó varios colegios y se preocupó en mejorar las explotaciones mineras. A su regreso a la España se dedicó a escribir poesía, alejado en general del culteranismo de la época. En este libro, publicado cuan él aún vivía, se recogen sus sonetos, canciones, décimas, coplas con vuletas, versos divinos y demás metro. Sus Obras en verso constituyen uno de los proyectos laureados más elaborados y conscientes de la primera mitad del XVII. Es uno de los pocos cancioneros barrocos españoles curados y editados por su propio autor, además del primer volumen de poesía dado a la imprenta por un miembro de la alta aristocracia castellana. En él, el príncipe de Esquilache recrea e instrumentaliza su estrecha relación con destacados miembros de la república barroca de las letras (desde Lope de Vega a los Argensola o los condes de Lemos), individualiza su posición con respecto a la polémica gongorina.

Obra HISTÓRIA DE VARÕES ILUSTRES DO APELIDO TÁVORA foi publicada póstuma pelo filho do autor, baseada em documentos e cartórios privados, com o objetivo de provar a importância dos Távoras como parentes da Casa Real portuguesa. Inocêncio I, 48 e VII, 190: 'Inocêncio I, 48 e VII, 190: 'Alvaro Pires de Távora, Senhor do Morgado de Caparica, Comendador das Ordens de Christo e S. Tiago.

Na composição desta obra teve parte D. Francisco Manuel de Mello, como se colige do que diz o Cavalheiro de Oliveira nas suas Memórias de Portugal, tomo II, pag. 349. É pela maior parte formada de cópias fielmente trasladadas de originais não menos por sua matéria importantes, que por seu estilo e pura linguagem, por isso que escriptos sobre negócios públicos e gravíssimos por pessoas da maior autoridade, e existentes quasietodas na idade mais lustrosa das letras portuguezas». É estimada, e pouco vulgar. Seu preço tem sido variavel; sei de dois exemplares com defeito, que se venderam a 1:200 réis: em bom estado de conservação podem valer 1:800 réis, e talvez mais. O Abade Barbosa, por um dos seus inevitáveis descuidos, tendo dado esta obra no tomo I em nome do referido auctor, novamente a reproduz no tomo III, attribuindo-a a Ruy Lourenço de Távora, que parece não ter tido parte alguma em sua composição, e ser méro publicador do que o seu pai deixara escrito.'
