        Haerlems schuyt-praetjen op 't redres vande West-Indische Compagnie

      Exposing the vices of the Dutch West India Company in Brazil, championing Portugal´s cause. 1649. [Amsterdam?]. In 4to (205 mm x 150 mm). 12 ff. Later half vellum over paper boards, upper portion of boards mildly darkened. Modern bookplate on front pastedown, unobtrusive contemporary ink notation on outer corners of recto of all leaves, tanned, untrimmed, nice copy. First edition of this interesting 17th century pamphlet of black propaganda; it champions the Portuguese cause in Brazil while exposing the vices of the Dutch West India Company. During 1649, while waiting for Amsterdam's municipal council to reconvene and vote on a resolution in favor of the Company, a series of anonymous pamphlets, politically motivated for the Portuguese cause, were published to persuade the town councilors to the Portuguese side. The tracts, cleverly published in dialogue format and usually embedded in a familiar setting, such as the market or the public house, took on "the colloquial tone of the middle and lower classes" (Asher) in order to communicate with a larger audience. Asher emphasizes the ingenuity of the framework of this particular type of Portuguese propaganda: "Leaving his actors to expose all the grievances of the country against Portugal, with much power and vehemence, the author seems to be quite impartial; but he has always a personage at hand who refutes all these charges or shows them to be mere trifles with the wrongs of the West-India-Company."The present pamphlet translates to "Harlem's Boat-talk on the Reformation of the West-India-Company"; according to European Americana, it is sometimes attributed to Cornelis Melin and is a dialogue between Mr. Keyser and Mr. Coninck, disputing the responsibility of the States of Holland to subsidize the Company's operations and subtly urging Portugal's call for peace. European Americana, 649/61. Sabin, 7586 & 29505. Borba de moraes, 389. Asher, 262.

        Examen vande valsche resolutie van de heeren burgemeesters ende raden tot Amsterdam. Op´t stuck vande West-Indische Compagnie

      Early tract on the activities of the Dutch West India Company in Brazil. 1649. Amsterdam. Abraham de Bruyn. In 4to (197 mm x 145 mm). 36. Later half vellum, a little rubbed. Some age toning, else fine, modern bookplate on front pastedown. First edition. A Meticulously framed response to the skillfully-framed Portuguese black propaganda: ?Copye vande resolutie van de heeren burgemeesters ende raden tot Amsterdam?, a fictitious account of a meeting of the Amsterdam municipal council published the same year. The propaganda claimed the cessation of financial support of the Dutch West India Company; this work translates to "Examination of the false resolution of the Burgomasters and council of Amsterdam on the question of the West India Company". The author refutes the accusation that the Burgomasters of Amsterdam were in favor of abandoning their financial support to the Dutch West India Company after the Portuguese Rising in Brazil, an act which would have penurised many small investors in the scheme.

Front joint tender but intact. Old armorial book-plate on front pastedown. Pencilled notes on front free endpaper. Title-page in red and black. Folding engraved plate by Marshall showing the King at his devotions. The plate is quite crisp and clean. All edges gilt. Pp. 273-278 are mis-numbered 173-178. 279pp. This is a presentation copy from Charles II. Many editions of the book were published in 1848-1849. Exact authorship has been debated since then. Charles 1 was executed on January 30, 1849. One theory has John Gauden, the Bishop of Exeter, writing the book to inspire sympathy for the King and to rouse public opinion against his execution. The "Eikon" or "Image of the King" was a most influential book printed in England during the period of the English Civil Wars and helped turn the tide of opinion in favor of the monarchy, leading to the restoration of Charles II to the throne in 1660. Furthermore, some historians believe that had the book appeared even a week earlier than it did, it might have saved the King's life. See Allibone, Volume 1 and Wing E294-306.

      Amsterlodami: Apud Jodocum Jansonium, 1649. Fourth Edition. Hardcover. An Early 17th Century Travel Guidebook, with Engraved Views of French, Dutch, and Swiss Cities. 140 x 83 mm (5 1/2 x 3 1/4"). 9 p.l., 340 pp., [11] leaves. Fourth Edition. Contemporary vellum, spine flat, ink titling in an old hand at head and foot. Woodcut initials, headpieces, and tailpieces, and 22 ENGRAVED PLATES (21 OF THEM FOLDING) OF EUROPEAN CITIES (including engraved title page). Old monogram bookplate on front pastedown. Cox I, 99 (citing the 1627 edition). Minor ink smudges on one plate and adjacent pages, a hint of soiling to vellum, other trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE COPY, the binding without appreciable wear, the text and plates especially fresh, and WITH RICH IMPRESSIONS OF THE FOLDING PLATES. This travel guidebook to France and nearby regions (including England, the Netherlands, and part of Switzerland) is the chief work of the jurist, philologist, and geographer Zinzerling (1580?-1620?). ADB calls this a "superb travel handbook . . . executed in 'notable' Latin," says that it replaced a similar esteemed work by Paul Hentzner, and grants Zinzerling an "honorable place in the history of Geography" on account of its publication. Divided into three parts, the book describes: (1) the natural history and political situation in France (by way of preparing the reader for a trip), (2) the trip itself, including study of the French language and the courtly arts of the French, and (3) a detailed description of Bordeaux, which the author chooses as his subject for a more extended and profound study of a single city. The work aimed mainly at young nobles for whom a trip to France was an expected part of their social education. Although it does not dwell at length on natural wonders, the book enumerates a great many noteworthy sights and provides a good deal of commentary on history, antiquities, and genealogy. The attractive folding plates include views of Nancy, Sedan, Paris, Orleans, Moulins en Gilbert, Nantes, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Montpellier, Marseilles, Orange, Lyon, Rouen, Calais, Amiens, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Leyden, Amsterdam, and Geneva. With the exception of two plates that are more ground plans than views, the engravings, while relatively small, are surprisingly detailed. And they show to good advantage here because of the strong impressions on fresh paper. The work was apparently published in Lyon in 1616, Strassburg in 1617, and Geneva in 1627 before our 1649 printing (which is the only edition listed in ABPC from 1975-2000).

        Eikon BasilikeThe Pourtraicture of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings

      London - R. Royden, 1649 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A charming andearlycopy of this highly sought after work, which purports to be Charles I's spiritual autobiography. First edition, with the original frontispiece engraved by William Marshall. Accompanied by Latin and English verses in explanation. Published on February 9, 1649, ten days after the King was beheaded by Parliament in the aftermath of the English Civil War. Written in a simple, moving, and straightforward style in the form of a diary, the book combines irenic prayers urging the forgiveness of Charles's executioners with a justification of royalism and the King's political and military program that led to the Civil War. It is by no means certain that Charles wrote the book. After the Restoration, John Gauden, bishop of Worcester, claimed to have written it. Scholars continue to disagree about the merits of this claim, though Gauden did have access to Charles' manuscripts. Condition: Rebacked in a calf binding, with original calf boards with brass clasps. Externally, rubbing to the boards, and loss to the clasps. Calf to the spine is smart. Internally, firmly bound, with lightly age toned pages, and the odd spot. Small closed tears to the frontispiece. Copperplate ink inscription to the endpapers. Overall: GOOD..

        The Alcoran of Mahomet, translated out of Arabique into French ... and newly Englished, for the satisfaction of all that desire to look into the Turkish vanities

      London: No publisher/printer, 1649. 4to (18.2 cm, 7.13"). [8] ff., 407, [1] p. (lacking final 7 ff.). First edition. Du Ryer's was the => first vernacular translation of the entire Koran (L'Alcoran de Mahomet, 1647, the third Western translation), and the basis for many following editions in various languages, including this => first ever complete English version published just two years later. Despite never having attended university, André Du Ryer (ca. 1580–1660) became an accomplished orientalist and translator, credited with introducing Persian literature to Europe (Gulist?n, 1634). Appointed French vice-consul to Alexandria in 1623, he studied Arabic and Turkish in situ for years, collecting oriental manuscripts on trips with the French ambassador, for whom he was an interpreter and later counselor. In Istanbul, the sultan also made Du Ryer his ambassador extraordinary to France. Woodcut headpieces and initials decorate the text, which is entirely in English, printed in roman and italic with sidenotes. The book closes with "The life and death of Mahomet, the prophet of the Turks, and author of the Alcoran" (pp. 395–407), but does not include the final, discrete article called for by ESTC, "A needfull caveat of admonition for them who desire to know what use may be made of, or if there be danger in reading the Alcoran," by Alexander Ross. Wing (rev. ed.), K747; ESTC R200453; Thomason, E.553[3]. On Du Ryer's translation, see: Hamilton, André Du Ryer and oriental studies in seventeenth-century France (2004), ch. 4. Contemporary full calf paneled in gilt with gilt corner fleurons; rebacked to style. Extremities rubbed revealing boards below at corners; spine chipped at head. Lacking final 7 ff. (apparently never bound in). Mild age-toning throughout., closed tear in outer margin of two leaves, and a few stains; occasional marginalia and underlining in red.
