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. Binding is contemporary vellum, with title inked along … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Some ink writing in an old hand on the leaf opposit the title-page, with a few words at the top of the title-page. This seems to have been issued both with and without a portrait, there is none here. 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.

n.p. (London): n.p. (Richard Roylston), 1648 ( but 1649). Second Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. (8),269,pp. Folding frontispiece portrait of the King, without the Explanation.

Contemporary full black calf with a crown and 'C' and 'R' at its base on both boards in gilt. Spine tips were replaced at an early date; light soil; lacks final blank; else a very good copy.

Altersgebräunt, leicht angeschmutzt, kleine Einrisse an Faltstellen und Rändern.. An Bürgermeister und Rat von Überlingen in der Streitsache des Jacob Blaphart von Kierwang. Blaphart, ein Leibeigener von Hausens Dienstherrn ("meinen gnedigen Herren mit lybeigenschaft zuegehoerdt"), der Grafen von Werdenberg-Heiligenberg-Sigmaringen-Trochtelfingen, hatte vor Hausen über ein nicht eingelöstes "gehaiß" (Versprechen, Schenkung?) seines Vaters, des Häuslers (Kleinstbauer) Hans geklagt. Hausen schickte daraufhin den Amtmann Conrad Rainer nach Kierwang, um eine Einigung zu erreichen. Da dieser Vermittlungsversuch scheiterte, soll nun das Gericht in Überlingen in dieser Sache "Recht ergehn lassen". Sixt von Hausen stammte aus dem seit dem 12. Jahrhundert zu belegenden und 1648 erloschenen Rittergeschlecht von Hausen.

European scientific thought during the period 1620-1660 was dominated by the revolutionary investigations of Galileo and others into the nature of the solar system. The Jesuits, as the chief proponents of traditional Aristotelian teachings, were hailed by many as the intellectual champions of the Catholic Church, the philosophical mathematical and Scriptural arguments of Jesuit writers against the Copernican theory of a sun-centered solar system the main driving forces of seventeenth century inquiry. At the beginning of the seventeenth century to understand meant to grasp regularities, and this knowledge was based largely on the accepted authority of ancient texts.
