      S.l. 1649 in kl. 4to (20x16 cm), gedr. bei Bolswart für (verl. bei) Samuel van Haringhouck. 2-spalt. Druck in Fraktur, Antiqua u. Kursiv, einschl. Tit.bl. m. großer Dr.-Marke nebst Motto 'Integritas Assecia Invidiae': 2 nnff (statt 4; es fehlen: *1 = Frontispiz u. *4 = letztes Bl d. Widm.), 652 pp u. 6 nnff Register. Zeitgen. Pgtbd (fleckig u. leicht verzog.), vereinz. fingerfl., am Anf. u. Ende eselsohrig, sonst wohlerh. - Der Autor war einer der "überragenden Meister der deutschen Sprache im 16. Jh." (Kaczer. p 11) u. zur "protest. Linken" d. Reformationsz. zählend, war immer auf der Flucht. Mit Frecht (1494-1556) u. Bucer (1491-1551) war er auf der Heidelb. Uni im Dominikaner-Colleg Bethlehem zusammen. Im Augsb. Bistum tritt er als 'geweihter Priester' auf, dann bekennt er sich zu Luther u. ist 1527 'evgl. Frühmessner' in Nürnberg u. in Ulm betreibt er seine Buchdruckerei; auch hier fällt er in Ungnade u. flieht nach Basel - samt Frau u. 4 Kindern u. dort verliert sich 1542 von allen die Spur. Keiner wollte mit diesem pantheist.-spiritualist. Reformtheologen was zu tun haben. Melanchthon betitelt d. Chronik eine 'indocta historia'. Luther wettert in seinen Tischgesprächen über Franck u. die Ulmer, daß sie die 'bösen, vergifteteten Buben halten'. Heute ist d. Zeit reifer f. ihn. Ab 1531 erschien d. 'Chronica, Zeitbuch u. Geschichtsbibel' hintereinander in vielen Aufl. (Kaczer. A 38-A 73) u. wurde ein vielgelesenes Volksbuch. Zu den 3 Teilen d. Chronik wurde 1534 als 4. Teil das 'Weltbuch' veröffentl. (Kaczer. A 74-A 84). Es enthält eine geograph.-polit.-histor. Beschreibung der 4 Erdteile. Das 4. Buch beschreibt - außergewöhnl. ausführlich - Amerika (pp 577-662). Die ersten nl. Übers. v. Franck's Chronica erscheinen in Emden ab 1558 (Kaczer. A 56-A 62, A 81/82). Es vergehen fast 90 Jahre, bis der nl. Philosophie-Professor an der Uni Franeker u. Dr.med. Johann Phocylides Holwarda (1618-1651, vgl. Jöcher II 1683) Franck's 'Weltbuch' - mit seinen Anmerk. auf das anderthalbfache des Umfanges steigernd - 1649 herausbringt. 2 Jahre später ist er tot..

La brochure porte en titre de depart: "L'Amant obstine dans ses recherches et la Fille constante en ses refus". Le sieur de Charmoy qui voulait epouser une demoiselle de Sainte-Croix, fut econduit par celle-ci malgre la promesse du pere. Sur la demande de Charmoy, un proces fut renvoye au Parlement de Paris, ou, par arret, est ordonne que la fille sera mise au couvent des Filles-Dieu pour declarer sa volonte. Charmoy, enrage, se resolut d'enlever la fille. "Accompagne de cinq hommes, il la tirent de sa chambre de force quoiqu'elle fut en chemise, lui font donner de la tete contre le plancher, cent coups de baton, d'eperons et des coups sur les bras pour lui faire quitter prise, la trainent dans le jardin nue comme la main ( ), la tirent par les cheveux mais n'en peuvent venir a bout (...). On sonne le tocsin, la population accourt et l'enlevement echoue" (cf. O. Lefevre D'Ormesson, 'Journal', 1860, I, 470 sq.). Un jugement tres severe fut rendu par le Parlement contre les auteurs du rapt : amende honorable devant la porte du couvent des Filles-Dieu, supplice de la roue, leurs biens confisques et leurs maisons rasees. Quant a Mademoiselle de Sainte-Croix, elle epousa, en 1654, un pretendant choisi. Dulaure relate d'affaire avec precision dans son 'Histoire de Paris', ed. de 1823, II, 401. Court de marge inferieure sans perte de texte. Moreau ('Mazarinades', II, n°1868) indique que "le seul exemplaire que j'ai vu est incomplet"..

ESTC R39418 , Authorship of the Eikon Basilike was originally attributed to Charles I, but according to Madan (pp. 125-33) it was written by John Gauden who probably included some authentic writings of the king. The book went through numerous editions in the years immediately following the death of Charles I, thirty-five in 1649 alone and copies are found with an variety of additional texts. This copy has a section of Henderson's 'Reliquiae' (Papers which Passed at Newcastle...) but doesn't have the "Explanation of the embleme" by William Dugard. This was printed separately and is not part of any of the signatures and where present is found before the frontis. The book was a masterstoke of Royalist propaganda, portraying Charles as a martyr, a powerful image in a world where religious persecution was not a distant memory. Such was the book's success in this portrayal of Charles that Parliament commissioned John Milton to write a riposte to it, which he published under the title Eikonoklastes ("The Icon-Breaker") in 1649. MIlton's work failed to significantly alter popular ideas of Charles as a martyr. , Small 8vo 6.5" tall, [4] 247 [5] 58 [18] pp .

THE ESSEX WATCHMEN'S WATCHWORD to the inhabitants of the said county respectively, dwelling under their several charges, by way of Apologetical Account, of the true Grounds of their first Engagement with them in the Cause of God, King and Parliament, for their Vindication from unjust Aspersions. Also by way of faithful Premonition of the dangerous evil latent in a printed Paper, entituled, The Agreement of the People, intended to be Tendred to them for Subscription. London: Printed for Ralph Smith, at the sign of the Bible near the Royal Exchange, 1649. First edition. The last two pages are a printed list of 63 ministers, beginning with Daniel Rogers, who endorsed this publication. The imprimatur (Ja. Cranford, 15 February 1648) is printed at the bottom of the last page. Small quarto. A-B4 18.2 x 14 cm. [2], 14 pp. Bound in later brown cloth-backed marbled boards, with a small typed label on upper board. Ex library, with minimal marks: an oval ink stamp on the outer margin, and a small library number on the inner margin of p. 1. This tract was written in support of `The Agreement of the People,' the army's petition for tolerance, when it was sent down for the Essex ministers to sign. Daniel Rogers (1573-1652) drew up `The Essex Watchmen's Watchword' on behalf of the presbyterians, and was the first to sign it, protesting against the toleration of any who refused to sign the 'Agreement.' A couple of small spots on the t.p., else a clean and very good copy. Rare. (D.N.B.; Wing E3342A).

        Novum ac Magnum Theatrum Urbium Belgicae Foederate . [With:] Novum ac Magnum Theatrum Urbium Belgicae Regiae

      - Amsterdam: Blaeu, [1649]. Folio. (20 5/8 x 13 3/8 inches). Latin text. On paper guards throughout. Engraved title page to each volume, with titles on printed overslips, 223 engraved maps. Eighteenth century red morocco, elaborately bordered in gilt, expert restoration at edges and joints, spine with raised bands in eight compartments, black morocco lettering piece in the second, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. The third edition in Latin of Blaeu's famous town books of the Netherlands, here bound in 18th-century English red morocco: a magnificent depiction of the Dutch Golden Age. "Of all the Blaeu atlases, the townbooks of the Netherlands are held in the highest esteem in the Netherlands. This is partly due to the fact that their composition is linked up with the struggle for independence from Spain of the Dutch Republic in the 17th century" (Koeman). This copy with slightly variant titles to Koeman Bl 66 and Bl67, printed on mounted overslips and without page numbers (otherwise collating as per Koeman). "In his third edition we find the same views and plans arranged in nearly the same order as in the second edition, but a smaller number of plates [i.e. mapsheets], as several half sheets of the first edition have been combined to make whole sheets . Several plans have been amended, some of them to a considerable extent . The text has been reset . This third edition is extended with extracts from the privileges granted by Philip II and Louis XIV" (Koeman). In the seventeenth century, the Dutch hegemony in ship building and navigation engendered their dominance in mapmaking. At the lead of this field was the Blaeu family. Willem Janszoon Blaeu first studied mathematics and navigation under the famous astronomer Tycho Brahe in 1594, opening his own instrument and globe making shop in Amsterdam in 1599. Shortly thereafter, Willem Blaeu would open a printing house, specializing in works on navigation. The Blaeu family's first world atlas, modestly titled the Atlantis Appendix as it was considered a continuation of the atlases by Ortelius, Mercator and Hondius, was first published in 1630 by Willem Blaeu with his son Joan Blaeu, the official cartographers of the Dutch East India Company. The acclaim that Blaeu's atlases have always received is based primarily upon the extremely high production standards found within. The quality of the engraving and the paper are of the highest order, placing them in the first rank among seventeenth century illustrated books. Blaeu's maps and town plans are embellished in the Baroque style, and many rank among the most beautiful ever made. This set, beautifully bound in 18th century red morocco, is from the noted libraries of Henry B. H. Beaufoy (a member of parliament and a fellow of the Royal Society noted for his library which included the first four folios of Shakespeare) and the Viscount Leverhulme (a noted industrialist, art collector and founder of the Lady Lever Art Gallery). Koeman, Bl 66 and 67 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      VG. 1649. First Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary calf rebacked and recornered, four raised bands on spine and spine label bearing gilt titles, boards with gilt oval containing the arms of Petrus de Villars Archbishop of Vienna (there were 3 Archbishop Villars of Vienna, the last died in 1663), some surface wear to boards, small ink stamp of a lion with the initial C under it on ffep, internally clean and bright, pagination ([8], 46, [2], 40, 56, 55, [1], 24, [2], 43-94, [10], 148, 24, 64.pp) matches that given by the ESTC. , This work contains 16 tracts originally published between 1641 and 1649 and here collected together and translated into Latin, presumably for a European readership. These tracts are by a number of different authors including John Gauden, William Prynne, William Sedgwick and John Cook (bap. 1608, d.1660), with each tract having a seperate title page dated 1648 or 1649. John Cook's name appears on just one tract but also on the main title page and so one assumes he was the translator. John Cook was a judge who acted as Solicitor-General at the trial of King Charles I, a trial which Cook called "the most comprehensive, impartial, and glorious piece of justice that ever was acted" and claimed that he "went as cheerfully about it, as to a Wedding". His involvement in the trial would see him executed for treason in 1660. , Small 4to .

        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.
