Losa, Francisco
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 Lope … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPILBERGEN, Joris van
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 als … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GAUDEN, John (1605-62)] formerly attributed to King Charles I
[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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHARLES I:
[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.

Blaeu
Amsterdam 1648 - Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) 'Cestria Comitatus Palatinus' from "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” published in Amsterdam, 1648. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Paper size:24"x19 1/2". Condition: Generally good with some minor aging along margins. A map depicting the county of Cheshire in England. Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founding father of the single most important cartographic publishing company in the Netherlands for nearly one hundred years. Blaeu’s firm was based in Amsterdam, the center of European cartography at the time. Blaeu was also the hydographic expert for the famous East India Company and the chief cartographer of the United Republic of the Netherlands. Willem, along with his son Johanne, published the first two volumes of "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” in 1635 by 1672, however, the atlas had expanded into 12 volumes, the "Geographia Blaviana”, depicting in about 600 maps the entire known world with most up to date cartographic exactness of the time. The Bleau-atlasses, meant for the wealthiest Europeans, were produced using exceptionally high quality standards of engraving, typography, paper and hand-coloring, not to mention being expertly surveyed within the company. The maps are among the most beautiful ever made, embellished in the baroque style with ornamental cartouches and marvelous staffages so that the viewer is struck by the decorative value his eyes see.***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this wor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Palafox y Mendoza, Juan de].
Madrid, 1648. First edition. 4to, ff. 240, [36] index, all text printed within borders. (Not in Medina BHA; Palau 209720) Transcription of the arguments made by Palafox (1600 - 59: Archbishop of Puebla and Mexico, and acting viceroy for 5 mos.) in his dispute with the Jesuits over issues of episcopal rights and jurisdiction. Palau notes that the book was written partly by Palafox, and partly by his Vicar General and other priests of his diocese; it was reprinted several times, and translated into Italian: this edition was issued while he was still in Mexico and at the height of his conflict with the Jesuits and other orders. Palafox attempted, ultimately unsuccessfully, to restrain the power the orders, particularly the Jesuits, which had grown so immense that they were practically governments unto themselves. Although the king of Spain ruled in Palafox's favor, and he even enjoyed papal support, such was the power of the Jesuits that he was withdrawn from his important position in Puebla and made bishop of a small diocese in Spain, where he died. Much revered popularly for his holiness and defense of native populations of Mexico -- he was referred to as "the second Las Casas", the Jesuits effectively blocked his process of sanctification. His Defensa is an important document in Mexican ecclesiastical history , closely reasoned and thoroughly documented from church authorities. This particular copy is ex-libris from a Scottish Benedictine library, the only library marking being a bookplate on the obverse of front cover.

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.

Bound in later 3/4 morocco and marble paper. Paper little toned but a very nice copy. Willems 649. Rare. Schurman (1607-78) was called a "marvel" and the "star of Utrecht" and was considered the most learned woman of her age. She was accomplished both in the arts and in a great number of scientific disciplines [Wilson, An Encyclopedia of Continental Woman Writers]. A child prodigy, Schurman was proficient in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Ethiopian, etc. Wilson notes that despite her abilities and fame, Schurman was reluctant to display her talents. In fact, in her later years, she devoted herself to the pietist, Labadie, following his community throughout Europe, finally dying in Friesland away from the intellectual life of Europe. Indeed, it was only the insistence of her friends that forced her to publish anything. In fact the period in her life that was devoted to learning and the education of women was very short. However she corresponded with many of the distinguished men of learning of her time and anyone of note visiting Utrecht paid her a visit. The present work includes some of her letters, epigrams, poems and elegies as well as her reasoned arguments on whether it is proper for Chris … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles 1; 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.
