One of two fold-out charts [a Hebrew star chart, or map] is present, the other is not. Original full calf. 433 pp + a section listing "Books Printed for and Sould by Peter Parker, at the Leg and Star, right against the Royal Exchange in Cornhill". Both covers detached and thoroughly scuffed; spine split down the middle, with contents still firmly attached, however. Fascinating india ink remarks on both front pastedown and rear flyleaf by an impressed former owner in 1793, discussing the history and inflammatory nature of the piece. A fair copy of an exceedingly rare piece, offered as is. A strange and emotion-inspiring book from its inception, Unheard of Curiosities has never stopped being controversial to this day, and has been reprinted in facsimile recently in both 1993 and 1999. To borrow from The Zodiacal Zephyr's Astrology Bibliography: "Jacques Gaffarel (1601-81), Hebrew scholar, theologian, cabalist, was the librarian for Richelieu. His writings tended to center upon the cabablistic sciences. The present work was first published (in French) in 1629. The first part defends Hebrews and Orientals against Christian charges. The Second deals with the talismanic arts of Persia. The Third, treats horoscopes and astrology of the ancients. The fourth astronomy and Hebrew letters. 'Chapter 5 in the second part is mostly of interest to gemologists.' Sinkankas I,368. … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Philip IV of Spain:
Madrid. Aug. 6, 1650.. 2pp. Folio. In a green levant morocco case. [with:] Philip IV of Spain: [MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED WITH THE ROYAL SIGN MANUAL, TO ADMIRAL DON PEDRO PORTER CASANATE, IN REPLY TO THE LATTER'S LETTER CONCERNING THE DISCOVERY OF THE GULF OF CALIFORNIA]. Madrid. Aug. 6, 1659. 2pp. Folio. In a green levant morocco case. Don Pedro Porter Casanate was the dominant figure in the exploration of the Gulf of California from 1635 to 1653. Born in Spain in 1604, he joined the Spanish navy early in life, serving with distinction against pirates in the Atlantic and Caribbean. In 1634 he published the fruits of his observations on navigation as REPARO A ERRORES DE LA NAVEGACION ESPANOLA.... Shortly thereafter he shifted his operations to the Gulf of California, where he led an expedition in 1635 under orders of the Viceroy. Evidently intrigued by this voyage, Casanate petitioned the Crown for permission to explore further, and in 1640 he was granted a license to "explore the Gulf of California without limit to leagues or time." Porter pushed his explorations forward, but was handicapped by a lack of funds, since the Crown would grant him no money nor appoint him to the various patronage positions he requested, which might have supplied funds in a more round-about way. Nonetheless, he managed in 1648-50 to explore the upper reaches of the Gulf of California, especially the Baja side. It is at that point that these two manuscripts were written. The first is a letter from the King of Spain, Philip IV, to the Viceroy of New Spain concerning Casanate and his proposed e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Salmasius,Claude] (1588-1653)
Leiden is suggested as the place of printing but no indication given in the book: Sumptibus Regiis, 1650. Hardcover. Very Good-. Duodecimo vellum yapp edge with manuscript spine title title (bit darkened esp. to spine) (x) +472pp. *Anonymously published work by Claude de Saumaise in vindication of Charles I against the regicides and for the legitimate succession of his son. The Sumptibus Regiis shows that Charles II commissioned this work while in exile. Milton was deputized by Parliament to write a rebuttal to this work, the PRO POPULO ANGLICANO DEFENSIO (see our copy of this for sale V69033). The printing history of the Defensio is complicated as it also came out in Paris and Rotterdam in the same year (see Madan 5th series of The Library). A crisp clean tight copy.
