        Relazione De' felici successi della Santa Fede Predicata Da' Padri Della Compagnia di Giesu Nel Regno Di Tunchino, Alla Santita Di N.S. PP. Innocenzio Decimo.

      Rome: Giuseppe Luna, 1650. - small 4to. pp. 8 p.l., 326, [1 leaf]errata. double-page engraved map. woodcut printer's device on title. woodcut ornaments & initials. contemporary vellum (slight worming to lower spine, lacking front flyleaf, front hinge cracked). First Edition of the first separately published description of the whole of Vietnam, containing what appears to be the earliest detailed map of North Vietnam. It is preceded by Cristóforo Borri's Relatione della nuova missione.della Cocincina (1631), which dealt only with South Vietnam. In addition to presenting a first-hand account of missionary activity in the country from 1627 to 1646, Rhodes gives details respecting the manners and customs of the native inhabitants, politics and government, natural resources and commerce, &c. French and Latin translations were published in 1652. Rhodes, a French Jesuit, was assigned to the missions of the East Indies and spent several years in Goa, Malacca, Batavia, and Macao, before proceeding to Cochin China (South Vietnam) in 1624, where fellow Jesuits had been working since 1615. He arrived with five colleagues under the leadership of Gabriel De Matos. Within six months he had learnt Cochinchinois, invented the quoc-ngu, by which Vietnamese could be represented by Roman characters, and evangelized much of the region between the coast and the Annamese highlands. (Howgego) In 1627 he proceeded to Tongking (North Vietnam), where he met with equal success, reputedly personally converting over 6000 souls, until he was expelled in 1630. He spent the next ten years in Macao making occasional excursions into Canton. Allowed to return to South Vietnam in 1640, he was later arrested and imprisoned and again expelled, returning to Rome via Persia in 1646. He later obtained permission to establish a new mission in Persia, and there died at Ispahan in 1660. Bell R264. Brunet IV 1269. Cordier, Indosinica, 1619. cfCordier, Sinica, 2080. Graesse VI 104.

        Map of Leon, Spain

      Amsterdam 1650 - WILLEM JANSZOON BLAEU 1571-1638 - JOAN BLAEU (son) 1596-1673 - CORNELIS BLAEU (son) d. c. 1642 At the beginning of the seventeenth century Amsterdam was becoming one of the wealthiest trading cities in Europe, the base of the Dutch East India Company and a center of banking and the diamond trade, its people noted for their intellectual skills and splendid craftsmanship. At this propitious time in the history of the Northern Provinces, Willem Janszoon Blaeu, who was born at Alkmaar in 1571 and trained in astronomy and the sciences by Tycho Brahe, the celebrated Danish astronomer, founded a business in Amsterdam in 1599 as a globe and instrument maker. It was not long before the business expanded, publishing maps, topographical works and books of sea charts as well as constructing globes. His most notable early work was a map of Holland (1604), a fine World Map (1605-06) and Het Licht der Zeevaerdt (The Light of Navigation), a marine atlas, which went through many editions in different languages and under a variety of titles. At the same time Blaeu was planning a major atlas intended to include the most up-to-date maps of the whole of the known world but progress on so vast a project was slow and not until he bought between 30 and 40 plates of the Mercator Atlas from Jodocus Hondius II to add to his own collection was he able to publish, in 1! 630, a 60-map volume with the title Atlantis Appendix. It was another five years before the first two volumes of his planned world atlas, Atlas Novus or the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum were issued. About this time he was appointed Hydrographer to the East India Company. In 1638 Blaeu died and the business passed into the hands of his sons, Joan and Cornelis, who continued and expanded their father's ambitious plans. After the death of Cornelis, Joan directed the work alone and the whole series of 6 volumes was eventually completed about 1655. As soon as it was finished he began the preparation of the even larger work, the Atlas Major, which reached publication in 1662 in II volumes (later editions in 9-12 volumes) and contained nearly 6oo double-page maps and 3,000 pages of text. This was, and indeed remains, the most magnificent work of its kind ever produced; perhaps its geographical content was not as up-to-date or as accurate as its author could have wished, but any deficiencies in that direction were more than compensated for by the fine engraving and coloring, the elaborate cartouches and pictorial and heraldic detail and especially the splendid calligraphy. In 1672 a disastrous fire destroyed Blaeu's printing house in the Gravenstraat and a year afterwards Joan Blaeu died. The firm's surviving stocks of plates and maps were gradually dispersed, some of the plates being bought by F. de Wit and Schenk and Valck, before final closure in about 1695. It ought to be mentioned here that there is often confusion between the elder Blaeu and his rival Jan Jansson (Johannes Janssonius). Up to about 1619 Blaeu often signed his works Guilielmus Janssonius or Willems Jans Zoon but after that time he seems to have decided on Guilielmus or G. Blaeu

        COURT AND CHARACTER OF KING JAMES. Written and Taken by Sir A.W., Being and Eye and Eare Witness.

      London By R.I. to be sold by John Wright 1650 - Scarce first edition. With the rare portrait frontispiece and engraved titlepage. Small 8vo [132 by 80mm], full contemporary calf, sometime sympathetically and expertly rebacked to correctly marry the boards which are paneled in blind in ornate fashion with floral corner-pieces also in blind, edges with a double-ruled gilt fillet line, edges gilt tooled, the spine with double-ruled gilt raised bands and a red morocco label ruled and lettered in gilt. [x], 197 pp. A nice copy indeed, being well preserved and a complete copy of this scarce work, with light typical age mellowing. The binding is sturdy and still attractive. SCARCE FIRST EDITION WITH THE RARELY ENCOUNTERED PORTRAIT FRONTISPIECE. A SELDOM ENCOUNTERED CONTEMPORARY ACCOUNT OF KING JAMES I WRITTEN BY A MEMBER OF HIS COURT. ONLY A SMALL HANDFUL OF COPIES HAVE APPEARED IN RECENT YEARS. The work has long been attributed to Anthony Weldon, due somewhat to its not overly flattering portrayal of the monarch and due to its publication within a few months of Weldon’s death. The justification for the criticism inherent in the book is usually presumed to be because of Weldon’s dismissal from the royal court. At first a popular courtier, Weldon wrote an assessment of the Scottish people which was far from positive and the former James VI of Scotland did not take kindly to it. While these attributions and assumptions have held for centuries there are nowadays opinions emanating from more modern scholarship which challenges both the authorship of the book and the story of Weldon’s dismissal from court.

        Lucans Pharsalia: or The Civil-Wars of Rome, Between Pompey the great and Julius Caesar / A Continuation of Lucans Historicall Poem till the Death of Julius Caesar.

      William Bentley, London 1650 - Translation by Thomas May. Two volumes. 24mo. Rebound in half black calf with marbled paper over boards, gilt, compartments. (10pp), 261pp; (8pp), 122pp. All edges gilt. Very good. Tight and quite handsome. Frontispiece (Volume I), Volume II engraved title page, marbled endpapers. Miniscule "Tout Binder" inkstamped on inner flyleaf of each volume. Tight and handsome pair of the fourth enlarged and corrected edition of this 1627 work. A poem by May's friend Ben Johnson ("To my chosen Friend, The learned Translator of Lucan, Thomas May, Esquire") follows the brief biography of Lucan that opens the first volume. Bookplate of noted collector William S. Stone on the front flyleaf of each volume and, more interesting, the bookplate of H. Buxton Forman graces each front pastedown -- likely a printed reproduction of Forman's engraved bookplate, added by Anderson Galleries when they auctioned off Forman's books in April 1920. Forman (1842-1917) was an English bibliographer of Keats and Shelley and antiquarian bookseller who entered the ranks of book collecting infamy when he partnered with notorious collector Thomas J. Wise in creating phony literary pamphlets featuring previously-unknown first appearances of poems by many noted poets of the day, which were then sold for substantial sums; their large-scale fraud wouldn't be widely known until Graham Pollard and John Carter's 1934 "An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets" spelled it all out in detail. Forman's bookplate features a profile image of a full-bearded young Forman in his study surrounded by books and a bust of Shelley, apparently transcribing a text with quill pen. An inner flyleaf in each volume bears Forman's pencilled initials and the date "13-10-90"; a neatly, boldly pencilled note on the verso of this leaf in Volume I, likely in his hand, notes: "Fourth Edition enlarged by the author. A very popular work highly praised by Ben Johnson. This edition appeared the year of his death, which was caused by an undue fondness for conviviality. Marvell penned the following words to him. 'As one put drink into the packet boat, John [sic] May was hurried hence and did not know't.'" May (1595-1650) was an English poet, playwright and parliamentarian historian, and Lucan (39-65 A.D.) was a Spanish-born Roman poet and one-time Nero favorite who got on the emperor's bad side and ended up committing suicide, his epic poem "Pharsalia" being his sole surviving work. While it's not known for painstaking historical accuracy, it is highly regarded for its exciting conveyance of the horrors of civil war. A beautiful and quite scarce pair in handsome late 19th century bindings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Christian Directory

      ONT>6.5 by4.5, (29), 758pp 1650 - A scarcesecond edition of The Christian Directoryby Robert Parsons, publishedin protest against Edmund Buny's Protestant revision. Bound in leather with blindstamped decoration. The Second Edition, Revised. Possibly Antwerp but this is conjectured from Wing. Scarce. The First Edition was known as The First Booke of Christian Exercise, Appertayning to Resolution. This edition includes a Preface, containing certain notes upon a false Edition of the same Book by M. Edmund Buny, together with his Treatise of pacification, and some other matter needfull to be read, before the Book it self. The title page is missing. Otherwise the work is complete. This isESTC record, R32170 and the text is complete. With a note on the front pastedown, [Parsons Jesuit (Robert)] Christian Directorie with reproofe of the falsified edition by E Buny. Two parts in one volume. . . This is Parsons' original version, enlarged. Lacks lear p305-206. 550. Refers on p755 to this as the 'Second edition'. Only three copies noted in STC. During his first months at Rouen he wrote his most influential work, The First Booke of the Christian Exercise, Appertayning to Resolution (Rouen, 1582; revised editions of 1585 and 1607 were known as The Christian Directory. . . This persuasive and forceful work guided the reader informally along a line of argument roughly equivalent to the initial stages of the Ignatian spiritual exercises. It was immediately recognized by protestants as a dangerously effective means of advancing the recusant cause, to the extent that a Calvinist divine, Edmund Bunny, felt it necessary to issue a heavily edited version, free of all specifically Roman Catholic doctrine and idiom. Bunny's version, A Book of Christian Exercise, Appertaining to Resolution, enjoyed phenomenal success as one of the most frequently reprinted of Elizabethan books, while the Catholic version, invariably called the Resolution, was a standard item in lists of Catholic books secretly distributed in England. (DNB)Robert Persons, 1546 1610, later known as Robert Parsons, was an English Jesuit priest. He accompanied Edmund Campion, who was later canonized, on Campion's mission to aid English Catholics in 1580. After Campion's capture, torture, and execution, Parsons left England, never to return. He was associated with Cardinal William Allen in his hopes of a swift conquest of England by the Spanish Armada. With the failure of that enterprise, he spent nine years in Spain. Recalled to Rome in 1585, he was professed there 1587 and sent to Spain at the close of 1588. Persons was successful, and then made use of the royal favour to found the seminaries of Valladolid, Seville, and Madrid and the residences of San-Lucar and of Lisbu, which became a college in 1622. Already in 1582 he had founded a school at Eu, in Picardy, in France, the first English Catholic boys' school since the Reformation; and he now succeeded in establishing at St Omer a larger institution to which the boys from Eu were transferred, and which, after a long and romantic history, still flourishes as Stonyhurst College at Stonyhurst. He had hoped to succeed Allen as Cardinal on the latter's death. Unsuccessful, he was rewarded with the rectorship of the English College at Rome, the most important seminary for English Catholic priests. Condition: The binding is loose in places. The front board andfront endpapers are detached and the rear inner hinge is strained. Pages 305-206 are missing. At least the first twelve pages, pages 355-366 and756-758 are partially detached.

RISM BVI p. 449. & & An extraordinary undertaking by this Jesuit polymath, sometimes referred to as "the last Renaissance man," author of approximately 40 works in a diversity of disciplines. The Musurgia was an attempt to present the entire body of musical knowledge up to Kircher's time, and is particularly valuable for both its engraved plates of musical instruments and its inclusion of extensive musical examples, many of which are complete 16th and 17th century works chosen to illustrate various styles. The work is widely considered to have been a great success, with Kircher's wide-ranging and insightful scholarship. & & "... Musurgia universalis, one of the really influential works of music theory, was drawn upon by almost every later German music theorist until well into the 18th century..."& & "... Much of Kircher’s contrapuntal doctrine derives from Zarlino, and in this and some other respects Musurgia universalis presents a synthesis of 16th- and 17th-century Italian and German compositional practices. A specifically German feature, however, is the description of the affective nature of music, in which Kircher brought the concept of musica pathetica into relation with the formal constructive elements of rhetorical doctrine..." & & "... His ideas concerning the classification of musical styles, based on sociological as well as national characteristics, are also original and important for the study of Baroque music... Although he was apparently not a practising musician he was able to identify the best music composed and performed in his own (and earlier) times. In Musurgia universalis he quoted frequently extensive music examples from composers such as Agazzari, Gregorio Allegri, Carissimi, Froberger, Gesualdo, Kapsberger, Domenico Mazzocchi and Morales. Other aspects of his treatise that contribute to an understanding of 17th-century musical thought include the lengthy discussions of acoustics, musical instruments..., the history of music in ancient cultures and the therapeutic value of music." George J. Buelow in Grove online& & Copies of this monumental work are often found to be lacking one or more plates and, in addition, are usually quite trimmed. The present copy is complete and has good margins throughout. & & Arguably the most spectacular 17th century book on music; a cornerstone of the literature.

        "Havana"

      Amsterdam, 1650. MAGNIFICENT ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR STUDY FOR CAREL ALLARD'S "HAVANA" Ink wash and pencil on paper, n.d. Inscription at lower center of drawing, "Havana" and at reverse of frame, "Havana Harbour/with Moro Castle/circa 1650/Goudstikker Gallery./Amsterdam". Sheet: approx. 7 1/2 x 9 1/2" Matted and framed Original drawing for "Orbis habitabilis oppida et Vestitus, centenario complexa ... Des bewoonden Waerelds steden en dragten, in een honderd-getal begreepen." Amsterdam: Carel Allard, c.1695. "Orbis habitabilis" is an interesting book on towns and costumes. The plates were by Aldert Meyer and Thomas Doesbergh. Printed sources have been identified for most, if not all, of the engravings, but the work still achieves a notable homogenity, owing to the fact that Allard himself closely supervised the engraving of the plates. The images in these series are excellent in design and execution, and wide-ranging and comprehensive in subject matter. In many cases a plate of a town is followed by one showing the costume of the inhabitants with the town in the background, which is shown in the present work. Allard is considered to be the first compiler of a townbook to couple the plates this way. "Orbis habitabilis" comprises 28 views of European towns (including 4 costumes), 24 Asian towns (including 4 costumes), 24 African towns (including 6 costumes) and 24 American towns (including 8 costumes). The text for the book was in Latin by Ludolph Smids, a Groningen doctor and antiquary who settled in Amsterdam in 1685. "Orbis habitabilis" is not dated, but must have been produced between 1683 and 1702 when Pieter Shenk published the "Hecatomopolis sive ... oppida nobiliora centum," which contains copies of some of Allard's plates..

        Relação do naufragio que fizeram as naos: Sacramento, & Nossa Senhora de Atalaya, vindo da India para o Reyno, no Cabo de Boa Esperança, de que era capitão mór Luís de Miranda Henriques no anno de 1647?.

      Lisbon, Na Officina Craesbeeckiana, 1650. - Woodcut initials. (2 ll.), 52 pp. Small 4°, disbound in a folding case of antique quarter calf over marbled boards, flat spine with crimson morocco lettering piece, gilt letter. Overall in good to very good condition. ---- ORIGINAL EDITION of one of the narratives that later comprised the @História trágico-marítima; extremely rare. As with all of these Portuguese shipwreck accounts from the mid-sixteenth to the mid-seventeenth century, it was later produced in a counterfeit eighteenth-century edition. Boxer noted, "I have never seen a copy of this first edition and have taken the description from the @História da literatura portuguesa ilustrada, III, 214" ("An Introduction to the @História trágico-marítima," in @Miscelânea de estudos em honra do Prof. Hernani Cidade, p. 86, no. 17A). In some corrections and clarifications to his previous article, Boxer refers to a copy in the Torre do Tombo, gives the collation (which agrees with ours) and calls it "excessively rare" (@Quaderni portoghesi V [Pisa 1979], 107). Innocêncio and Figanière also knew only of the Torre do Tombo copy. The Visconde de Azevedo, mistaking the counterfeit edition for the original, reprinted the former on his private press in a limited edition of four copies at Porto in 1865.The Portuguese vessels @Sacramento and @Nossa Senhora de Atalaya set sail from Goa together in February 1647. Neither was in good repair, and both were wrecked off the coast of Natal, 30 June and 4 July 1647. Each ship's survivors were unaware of the other's misfortune until the company from the @Sacramento discovered the wreckage of @Nossa Senhora de Atalaya. They finally caught up with their countrymen and together continued the arduous overland march toward Moçambique. Of 72 persons who reached shore after the wreck of the @Sacramento, only 5 Portuguese and 4 slaves lived through the rigors of the trip. Authorities in Sofala held the survivors incommunicado for a month while investigating the whereabouts of jewels salvaged from both ships.News of the loss of the ships took a long time to reach Lisbon: the first notice was apparently received in August 1649. Further details were supplied by Bento Teixeira Feo (or Feio, or Feyo), a treasury official in India who later served as Thesoureiro môr in Lisbon. He had been aboard @Nossa Senhora de Atalaya, and after being interviewed by the Overseas Councilors began to write this report of the shipwreck at the King's command. Teixeira Feo's moving narrative gives details of the shipwrecks and the dangers the survivors underwent as they made their way north. It is rich in description of the terrain, animals, vegetation and native population, which makes it not only an affecting piece of literature, but a crucial source for the ethno-history of Southeast Africa.---- Boxer, "An Introduction to the @História Trágico-Marítima," in @Miscelanea de Estudos em honra do Prof. Hernâni Cidade p. 86, no. 17A.

        [Official order to the magistrate of 's-Hertogenbosch].Lembeek (near Halle, south of Brussels), 18 August 1675. Folio (31.5×20.5 cm). Manuscript order in brown ink on paper, with a cut paper seal attached over sealing wax, with the blind-stamped coat of arms of William III. Signed by William and by his secretary Constantijn Huygens.

      Original manuscript order signed and sealed at the army camp at Lembeek by William (Willem) III, Prince of Orange (1650-1702), Stadholder of the Dutch Republic and future King of England. It is also signed next to the seal by William's secretary Constantijn Huygens II (1638-1697), an important statesman in his own right, son of the poet and diplomat of the same name, and brother of the scientist Christian Huygens. Appointed Stadholder in 1672, William governed most provinces of the Dutch Republic to his death. In 1689 he was also crowned King William III of England and Ireland, and King William II of Scotland.During the summer campaign of 1675 William stayed several months with his army at Camp Lembeek, south of Brussels. King Louis XIV of France fought against the Dutch in Flanders and Brabant during the Franco-Dutch War, which began in 1672 and ended with the Peace of Nijmegen in 1678. In the spring and early summer of 1675 Louis had conquered Liège, Dinant, Hoey, Tongeren and other cities.In this document William orders the magistrate of 's-Hertogenbosch to hospitalize the sick (and presumably the wounded) of his army, sent to the city by "Wuester", quartermaster of the Dutch army. The document was formerly folded and has a contemporary note on what would have been the outside, "missive van sijn Hoogheyt". In very good condition.

        [Letter to the Dutch Admiralty in Zeeland, signed by King William III, Prince of Orange]. Whitehall, London, 16 November 1692. Folio (31 x 17.5 cm) . Letter in Dutch, written in brown ink on paper.

      Letter in Dutch signed "William R[ex]" by the Dutch stadholder and English King William III, Prince of Orange (1650-1702) to the "Heeren" (gentlemen, the title used by the directors) of the Dutch Admiralty in Zeeland. Writing from Whitehall in London during the Nine Years' War or War of the Grand Alliance, William notes the importance of quickly readying the Anglo-Dutch fleet for the winter and in particular the ship of Captain Holthuysen. He asks them to provision it as quickly as possible and send it back to him.From 1672 onwards, the Prince of Orange governed as Stadtholder Willem III over most provinces of the Dutch Republic. In addition, from 1689 onwards, he reigned as King William III over England and Ireland, and as King William II over Scotland. The War began in 1688 and eventually united England, The Netherlands, The Holy Roman Empire and Spain in an alliance under William III, fighting against France under Louis XIV, who had come to dominate Europe over the previous twenty years.Browned along the edges and with three corners broken off (with the loss of the "Admir" of "Admira[i]l[eit]t" at the foot), but otherwise in very good condition. A letter from King William of Orange concerning the preparation of the Anglo-Dutch fleet.

        Judicious and select essayes and observations

      London: Humphry Moseley, 1650. 16mo., engraved portrait frontispiece; contemporary bookplate, some minor manuscript annotations in ink, original calf, rehinged and repaired. First edition of this important collection of four essays by the Elizabethan statesman, comprising, 'The first Invention of Shipping', 'The Misery of Invasive Warre', 'The Navy Royall and Sea-Service' (written from the Tower for the instruction of Prince Henry), and 'Apologie for his voyage to Guiana', which was Raleigh's version of his fateful expedition to Guiana in 1595. Raleigh had been astounded with the beauty and wealth of the Americas, and propounded the view that England should colonise the area, accruing in the process almost boundless riches. Yet, the publication of his Discovery in 1596 was met with widespread disbelief, and as he fell from favour with James I, increasing hostility. Raleigh was accused of displaying self-interest bordering on treason. The 'Apologie' printed here formalises his response. It is a vehement rejection of the claims of self-interest, and responds to the claims that his voyage was a failure. Startlingly, he begins his argument with the frank assertion that anything more was rendered impossible by having a crew, apart from some forty Gentleman, comprised 'of the very Scumme of the World: Drunkards, Blasphemers and such other as their Fathers, Brothers and freinds thought it an exceeding good gaine to be discharged of them…'. Although each essay has its own title-page, the four were evidently always issued together. The frontispiece portrait of Raleigh is by R. Vaughan.
