Bible - Dutch. Lutheran. 1648.
Gedruckt by Rieuwert Dircksz van Baardt, t'Amsterdam: 1648., 1648. ff. (19), 278, 112, 70, 132 leaves. Engraved pictorial title page and tailpiece, and five historiated double-page folding maps and city views (by Savary). Woodcut tailpieces, large and small decorative and historiated initials.

Still impressive, and priced to allow for proper restoration. Engraved bookplate of R. Percy Alden, drawn by the American artist J. Alden Weir. This is the famous Dutch Lutheran Bible of 1648. This important Dutch Bible of was based on the Low German Bible printed at Madeburg in 1554, which was translated by J. Bugenhagen from Luther's Bible of 1545. It was published for the use of his brother Mennonites in 1560 by N. Biestkens van Diest in Emden, and became famous as the Biestkens Bible. Darlow and Moule 'Historical Catalogue of the Printed Editions of the Holy Scripture' No. 3311 says that this edition is "A revision of the 'Biestkens Bible' prepared on the basis of Luther's by Adolf Visscher of the Lutheran Church at Amsterdam. This became the standard Bible of the Dutch Lutherans." It is curious to note that it is the only Dutch Bible ever published by van Baardt. Darlow & Moule 3311. **PRICE JUST REDUCED! Scarce. W108.

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.

More than 240 astronomical and geometrical textdiagrams. 9 full-page woodcut illustrations, 7 of these depicting Brahe's astronomical instruments. Nearly all the sheets of this printing has homogeneous browning to the leaves, not due to bad keeping, but caused by the rather poor paper-quality from the press.. First edition of "Opera Omnia", containing Brahe's main astronomical works. At the end of 1610 all the sheets from Brahe's own press at Hven were used up, and his writings were much in demand, so this edition is from start to end a completely new printing and can be considered the second printing of the three main works: Epistolarum astronomicarum libri, Astronomiae instauratae progymnasmata and De mundi aetherei recentioribus phænomenis liber secundus. - Houzeau & Lancaster 2704. - Brunet I:1199. - Bibl.

MERIAN, Matthäus, the elder
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. Cf. Brunet V.1530
