        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)." (quoted from Stapleton's Cambridge Guide to English Literature)

        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 – 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. [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.

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.'

The second work records Tycho's observations of the great comet of 1577, and includes a description of his geoheliocentric theory of the universe.

        Eikon Basilike (Greek letter). The Pourtraicture of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings.

      [London: Printed by John Grismond for Richard Royston] 1648 (i.e. 1649) . First Edition, second issue Small 8vo, A4, (A3 mis-signed A4), B-S8, lacking last blank, lacking the folding frontispiece, 4-page Als from Edward Almack to Geo. C. Williamson tipped in at end and on a front fly a long note by Williamson recording that this copy was foundin an old house in Guildford, black morocco, gilt fillet borders, centre panel in gilt and blind with floral cornerpieces, spine with raised bands, gilt flowers in compartments, by Riviere signed on front turn-in, neatly rehinged, edges stained black, probably by the original binder. An oft-reprinted work, of which Madan lists 51 issues and editions appearing in 1648 and 1649, many of them by printers and publishers being hounded by the authorities and frequently arrested. The bibliography of the early issues is complicated; Edward Almack was the first to investigate them and he gave the present issue (without the names in the imprint) priority. He also claimed that the folding frontispiece was not issued with this edition, and the Pforzheimer Catalogue follows him in this - "... the engraved frontispiece by William Marshall which was intended for several of the later editions". Madan finds otherwise; identifying this copy as first edition, second issue (it has the scambled pagination in sig. G) and stating that the engraved portrait should be present, although I note that, of the 11 copies he lists as known to him, no less than 4 are described as without the portrait. I have to admit however, that ideally, rare though all early issues undoubtedly are, this one should perhaps have the portrait to be complete.

        [Greek title] Eikon Basilike [King's Book]. The Pourtracture of His Sacred Majestie in his Solitudes and Sufferings.

      [London: Printed by William Dugard] 1648.. 12mo, (iv), 187, (1) pp. Folding emblematic frontispiece showing Charles kneeling, subtly laid down, browning to edges of a few pages. Recent full calf, blind stamped decoration to corners and spine, gilt title, binder's ticket to rear paste down. First appearing days after Charles I's execution, this famous collection of what were purportedly the King's thoughts and meditations became a publishing sensation, with some 60 editions appearing in Britain and Ireland alone in one year. The question of authorship was for centuries hotly debated, although it now seems likely it was the work of Bishop Gauden, adapting and adding to pages composed by Charles. Madan 13, frontispiece 16.

Ink signature of Charles Greene on title- page, signature of R.J. Cary MD, 1913 inside front cover. Very good. . FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of a copy heavily read by an early physician/owner. The ffep. has an extensive ms. list of topics and where they are located in the text. On the title-page is a contemporary ms. biographical note of van Helmont. Marginalia throughout the text makes references to urinalysis, and to Paracelsus. Van Helmont was an early modern period Flemish chemist, physiologist, and physician. He worked during the years just after Paracelsus and iatrochemistry, and is sometimes considered to be “the founder of pneumatic chemistry”. ¶ “‘The Birth of Medicine’, edited posthumously by the author’s son, is our chief source for the discoveries of Helmont with regard to the chemical nature of living processes. … Many of Helmont’s general principles were derived from those of his master, Paracelsus… Life Paracelsus he did not confine his studies to specific limited fields; his outlook was universal. He sought a cosmological system and a unified view of natural science which would embrace all phenomena. His metaphysics and religion led him to abandon scholastic forms of thinking, and thence, by abjuring theoretical speculation, he was brought to regard experiment and empiricism as the main paths to knowledge. Although he was inclined to mysticism, he nevertheless became a remarkable scientific investigator and made significant contributions to the progress of chemistry and medicine.” [Printing and the Mind of Man 135]. ¶ Van Helmont is remembered today largely for his ideas on spontaneous generation, his 5-year tree experiment, and his introduction of the word “gas” (from the Greek word chaos) into the vocabulary of scientists. His works were collected and edited by his son Franciscus Mercurius van Helmont and published by Lodewijk Elzevir in Amsterdam as Ortus medicinae, vel opera et opuscula omnia in 1648. Ortus medicinae was based on, but not restricted to, the material of Dageraad ofte Nieuwe Opkomst der Geneeskunst (“Daybreak, or the New Rise of Medicine”), which was published in 1644 in Van Helmont’s native Dutch. Helmont’s most important work, Ortus medicinae (“Birth of medicine”), was published four years after his death by his son. Its publication in the Netherlands, a Protestant country, was thought necessary to avoid the Inquisition, whose disfavor Helmont had earlier incurred because of his mystical and magical tastes not entirely in keeping with Church dogma. In this work, Helmont established his name as one of the founders of biochemistry, although some authorities believe that he is perhaps overrated because of his vacillations between mysticism and science. In any event, his discovery of digestive juices in the stomach and intestine, and especially his first use of the specific gravity of urine for diagnostic purposes, mark him as a man of no insignificant importance in the history of medicine. [Heirs of Hippocrates]. ¶ Provenance: Raymond John Cary (d. 1959?) was a 1912 graduate of Johns Hopkins University. He wrote a paper, “Digestion; an historical survey,” for the Bulletin of Johns Hopkins Hospital, May 1916, p. 142. In this paper Cary refers to this very copy of van Helmont’s Ortus medicinae and draws from the text what are his own perceptions on the author’s views on digestion. Cary writes that Johann Georg Wirsüng’s discovery in 1642 of the pancreatic duct was not known to van Helmont (nor was it understood by Wirsüng who was murdered – see below). Cary worked at the Mt. View Sanatorium, Lake View, Washington. Member: American Public Health Association.

        Le Théâtre du monde, ou nouvel atlas....quatrieme partie [Theatrum, volume IV: England and Wales]

      Amsterdam: 1648. Folio. (20 ¾ x 13 inches). French text, letterpress title on slip within hand-coloured engraved architectural border, heightened in gilt, 60 engraved general and county maps (59 double page) including general maps of Scotland and Ireland preceded by a printed divisional half- title (not called for in the index at end), all finely coloured by a contemporary hand, 71 illustrations (3 hand-coloured). Contemporary red morocco, paneled in gilt with fillets and decorative rolls, the inner panel with elaborate blocked cornerpieces of stylized scrolling foliage, a blocked central oval of scrolling flowers and foliage enclosing a small blank oval, the spine gilt in eight compartments with raised bands, each compartment with a central rose flower-head tool and a small flower-spray tool at each corner, green cloth ties, gilt edges, modern tan cloth box, brown morocco lettering-piece. An unrecorded variant edition of Blaeu's atlas of England and Wales, in a magnificent contemporary red morocco binding. The fifty-eight maps normally found in the French editions are supplemented by an appendix with a half-title and two new maps. These new maps are general maps of Scotland and Ireland, which were the first two maps completed for Blaeu's atlas of Scotland. The forthcoming publication of the Scotland atlas is announced on the half-title, but it did not appear on the market until 1654 (as volume 5 of the Theatrum). Neither Koeman nor Skelton mention a French edition with this appendix, which is normally found in the Dutch-text edition of 1647 (Koeman B145B). The ephemeral nature of this edition is confirmed by the fact that the supplement is not mentioned in the index at the end. The present atlas is volume four of the six-volume French text edition of the Theatrum (or Théâtre du Monde). The volumes of the Theatrum were published separately from 1635 to 1655. Volume 4 was introduced with French text in 1645. In its completed form, the Theatrum was the finest and most accurate atlas yet to have been published. Koeman I, Bl-42 C (not calling for the extra maps of Scotland or Ireland present here); Skelton 43.

        Parys. [i.e Paris]

      Frankfurt: 1648. Copper engraving by Merian, on two joined sheets. Creased at folds. Mild soiling. 11 ¾ x 28 ½ inches overall. A highly atmospheric panoramic view of early 17th-century Paris: an important contemporary visual record by one of the great engravers of his time. The city is viewed from a vantage point in the present day Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, looking towards the south west, over the Hospitale de S.Louis, to the vast but now long-vanished fortifications of Étienne Marcel, across the city, Notre Dame just left of center, the Louvre and the Tuileries gardens to the right, continuing across the Seine to the left-bank and the open countryside beyond. The foreground includes a back-view self-portrait of the artist seated on a boulder sketching. This fine view is from Merian's `Topographia Franconiae' published in Frankfurt between 1648 and 1656 with text by Martin Zeiler. Merian (1593-1650), the father of engraver Matthäus the younger, and the grandfather of the painter, engraver and naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian, was born Basel in Switzerland. After a peripatetic period when he visited and lived in Nancy (France), Paris and Stuttgart, and after working for Theodore de Bry for a while, he married in 1618 and settled in Frankfurt. From here he issued a great many engravings including a number of town views which, because of their accuracy and artistic excellence, form an invaluable record of Europe during the first half of the sixteenth century.
