      Amsterdam, Joost Hartgers, 1649.4to. Modern boards. With woodcut vignette on title-page and 6 half-page engravings. 47 lvs.First edition published the same year. - Jan Somer (ca. 1560-1640) a Dutchman from the province of Zeeland claims that he started his voyage in 1590 and returned in the autumn of 1592. There are several inconsistencies in the text, however, which make a large part of his itinery doubtful. It is conceivable that Jan Somer never travelled at all, but is one of the many plagiarists of his time. Somer was widely read, however, and had the reputation of being a famous traveller who wrote excellent accounts of his extensive journeys (Koster, To Hellen's noble land, 13). Including accounts of Alexandria, Cairo, the Red Sea area and Turkey. The treatise on the Turcks is a translation of B. Georgiewitz's De Turcarum moribus epitome, 1544. - A fine copy.Tiele 1014; Cat. NHSM I, p.255-256.

        The Alcoran of Mahomet

      London: [s. n.],, 1649. Translated out of Arabique into French; by the Sieur Du Ryer, Lord of Malezair, and Resident for the King of France, at Alexandria. And newly Englished, for the Satisfaction of all, that desire to look into the Turkish Vanities. Quarto (180 × 137 mm). Contemporary blind-ruled sheep, rebacked and recornered, richly gilt spine, edges sprinkled red, endpapers renewed. Woodcut headpieces and initial figures. Board edges rubbed, restored craquelure to leather around extremities, rear board slightly marked, strictly contemporary underlining and occasional marginalia in brown ink throughout, title page damp-stained, outer corners repaired, occasional pale damping to margins, extending in sigs. H3-7, X3-6, Y3-6 and penultimate blank, small chip to top edge of sig. A2, G5 repaired at foot, small spill-burn to sig. R5 costing a couple of the letters, the sense remaining clear, restorer's ticket to rear pastedown, remains a good copy. First edition of the Qur'an in English, this quarto preceding an octavo edition of the same year; a good, complete copy of this landmark of Arabic studies in England, notably retaining the "needfull caveat or admonition for them who desire to know what use may be made of, or if there be danger in reading the Alcoran" bound in at the rear and signed Alexander Ross (c.1590–1654), who was chaplain to King Charles I and is usually assumed to have been responsible for the translation as a whole, which was based on the first edition in French, published in 1647. The work was intended for royal dedication but was not ready by the time of Charles's execution in January 1649; on 19 March parliament issued a warrant to seize all copies of the book and Ross was summoned before a parliamentary committee, though the translation was eventually published several weeks later, with a prefatory address entitled "The Translator to the Christian Reader" together with Ross's caveat; the main text also includes a 13-page "Life of Mahomet". Ross's caveat, which compares Islam to other historical heresies from the Old Testament and classical antiquity, demonstrates an "interest in comparative religion [which] reflects a new, albeit highly sceptical engagement with Islamic doctrine" (Birchwood, Staging Islam in England: Drama and Culture, 1640–1685, p. 67). Although the English translation was made directly from the French without reference to Arabic, it proved highly influential in continental Europe, and was the basis for further versions in Dutch, German, and Russian (Leaman, ed., The Qur'an: An Encyclopaedia, p. 667); this copy is much enlivened by a late-17th or early-18th sketch of a figure labelled "Mahomet" to the terminal blank in red pencil.

        Longitudes diagram chart 1649 Rare Bousseau antique thematic map world cities

      1649 - Table Generalle Des Longitudes et Latitudes des Villes plus recommees du Monde, dressee sur Meridien des Canaries.(Latitudes & Longitudes of World Cities/ early thematic cartography/ geometric coordinates). Issued Paris, 1649 by Jean Boisseau. Fascinating and very scarce mid-17th century engraved longitude chart.*Utterly fascinating when examined in detail. The diagram is composed of six concentric circles using the Canaray Islands as the Prime meridien (as opposed to Greenwich), each representing various nation or global regions such as the Americas, Indies, Poland, Persia, Arabia, Asia Minor and Africa. Within each of these are long circular lists of specific important world cities or towns, each precisely corresponding to the degree. Hundreds of global cities and towns are named, a very interesting conceptual diagram. Pre-dates by more than 100 years the ability of sailing ships being able to determine their longitude while sailing at sea. Among the earliest and possibly scarcest of thematic maps relating to this scientific topic then of keen popular interest, not solved until the 1770's by John Harrison. Excellent early example of creative, visually unique scientific navigation and cartographic thematic cartography . Clean overall, couple minor expert paper repairs so well done they are almost invisible to the untrained eye. A very well preserved and nice looking example of this rare antique thematic cartographic navigational chart. Small square folio format. Sheet measures c. 17" x 14 3/4". Printed area measures c. 14" x 14 1/4". *The engraved plate shows clear signs of having been reworked and then re-used. The imprint lower right displays evidence of plate erasure by the early engraver, obviously to remove signs of previous attribution no longer applicable. The plate also shows signs of some reworking at left center and below, fascinating features creating scarce states such as this. A very rare print, appearing not once within the entire online Map Price Record. Delaney, Landmark Thematic Maps, 57-66. Tooley's Dictionary of Mapmakers, vol. 1, p. 159. [R13875]

      Very Good. [No publisher. No place.] M.DC. XLIX [1649] Madan 62; Almack 48; Wing E311. 8vo, 17 cm, the EIKON is 247 pages, the verso of p. 247 is blank. This copy begins with a double-page frontispiece of the king in prayer, signed in the plate Guil.Marshall delin. (center) and Ro. Vaughn Scupl in the lower right-hand corner, under the kings foot a map with Mundi Calco, and behind him the weighted palm tree. The initial blank with the explanation in Latin and English of the emblematic frontispiece is lacking. The title page is in red and black: EIKON BASILIKE is given in red with Greek letters. PORVTRACTVRE, MAISTIE, Maisties, and M.DC.XLIX are all printed in red, the rest of the letters are black. There are three red printers marks in each of the four corners of the title page. The collation is as follows: [frontispiece; A1-2, B1-8 through I1-8; K1-8 through Q1-8 (verso of P2 has the portrait of the Prince of Wales: Natus May 29 An° 1630 AEtatus suae 19/Þ/), R1-4; verso of R4 is blank, recto of R5 is blank, verso of R5 has the portrait of Charles as Fidei Defensor; bound in here is THE /PAPERS /Which passed at / NEW-CASTLE / BETWIXT / His Sacred MAJESTIE / AND ? Mr. ALEX. HENDERSON: Concerning the Change of / CHURCH-GOVERNMENT. / Anno Dom. 1646. Printed for R. Royston, at the Angel in Ivie-lane, London: M.DC.XL.IX. (A1-8 through D1-8, D8 is blank); the original collation concludes with S1-6 and T1-2.Other points of identification of this printing:1. Chapter 19 is numbered in error as 16;2. Chapter 28 is numbered in the contents but not in the text;3. The number of prayers is 4;4. P. 212 is occupied by a portrait of Charles II, and to his right is a crown of thorns;5. Leaves T1 and T2 are unpaginated.According to Madan, this small issue of the EIKON was circulated in advance and printed by Francis Leach. The title page is dated 1649, but Madan tells us this edition of the EIKON was an integral part of the 1651 edition of the Works. As the first issue with the frontispiece 11, Madan also says, This issue is very rare. I only know of three copies, including that described by Almack.Bound in contemporary brown morocco with Madans binding stamp 15: the Death Mask surmounted with the Royal Cypher CR which is under the Kings Crown, all stamped in gold, in the center of the front and back covers. Elaborate gold thistles occupy each of the four corners of each cover. The spine is marked out in blind in with ten empty panels. The borders of the covers are mitred with a simple double-line border all around, and the edges of the covers are decorated with a simple embossed pattern. Page edges are gilded all around. The front cover is slightly sprung. There is wear to the foot of the front hinge. Three of the corners have been knocked. Replacement end papers have been put in, probably in the nineteenth century, with prior booksellers pencil notations on the front and back flyleaves. Of more interest are the two old ink annotations on the verso of the frontispiece: No. 43 and, below, D.F. over N.9. The apparent resheathing is not cause for concern, as the original binding for this edition was preserved, and Almack describes a copy bound with the Royal Arms with similar manuscript annotations. Maden says that this binding stamp was probably made in 1650. Overall, an astonishing copy of a very rare edition: bright and crisp, free of foxing, and in a contemporary binding.
