        The Life of the Renowned Sr Philip Sidney....

      London: For Henry Siele, 1652. First Edition. 12mo in 8s. ....With the true interest of England as it then stood in relation to all forrain princes: and particularly for suppressing the power of Spain stated by him. His principall actions, counsels, designes, and death. Together with a short account of the maxims and policies used by Queen Elizabeth in her government.Two engraved portrait frontispieces, one mounted of Sidney and another of Greville bound in. [4]247pp. with spurious pagination but all catchwords matched and complete. " The 'Life', though written apparently ca. 1610 and perhaps revised later, was not published until twenty-four years after Greville's deah. It is not so much a biography as an historical survey by a disillusioned politician of an earlier and less corrupt time when Elizabeth, though not faultless, was unswerving in her determination to make England great, and Sidney, of all too brief a period, stood above all others as the militant champion of European Protestantism." (English Literature in the Seventhteenth Century, Bodeleian Library, 1957).A hansome copy, rebound in 20th century England, in full brown polished calf, raised bands, one compartment lettered in gilt, endpapers renewed. A lovely copy displaying no foxing, but just a hint of toning. Very nice.

        The History of The Valorous and Witty-Knight-Errant, Don Quixote, of the Mancha Bound With The Pleasant Notes Upon Don Quixot

      London: Printed by Richard Hodgkinsonne, for Andrew Crooke, 1652. Two works bound in one volume. Quarto, full brown leather, gilt tooling and titles to the spine, gilt device to the front and rear panel, raised bands. Bound with the first edition of Edmund Gayton's Pleasant Notes Upon Don Quixot, which was published in 1654. Three title pages (The History being divided in two parts) with woodcut devices, ornamental head- and tail-pieces, and large decorated initials. In very good condition with some toning to the text. The Pleasant Notes Upon Don Quixot was a commentary on Cervantes, with three early references to Shakespeare. Repeatedly Gayton departs from its subject to introduce colorful anecdotes of contemporary London. Shakespeare is named in a list of English writers on p. 21; on p. 95, Don Quixote is called "The Shakespeare of the Mancha. Don Quixote tells the tale of a man so entranced by reading about the chivalrous romantic ideals touted in books that he decides to take up his sword and become a knight-errant himself, with the aims of defending the helpless and warding off the wicked. With his somewhat confused laborer-turned-squire, Sancho Panza, they roam the world together and have adventures that have haunted reader's imaginations for nearly four hundred years. Don Quixote is generally recognized as the first modern novel. Over those years, it has had an incredible influence on thousands of writers, from Dickens to Faulkner, who once said he reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible". Vladamir Nabokov is quoted as saying, "Don Quixote is greater today than he was in Cervantes's womb. [He] looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through [his] sheer vitality... He stands for everything that is gentle, forlorn, pure, unselfish, and gallant. The parody has become a paragon."

      Paris: Sanson. Very Good. 1652. A very rare map from Nicolas Sanson. Imprint bears the date of 1652, although it is possible that this copy came from an atlas in the later 1600s.

        De wonderlyke reizen van Fernando Mendez Pinto; die hij in de tijt van eenëntwintig jaren in Europa, Asia en Afrika... gedaan heeft.Amsterdam, printed for Jan Rieuwertsz I and Jan Hendricksz Boom, 1653. 4to. With an engraved title-page and 7 engraved plates. Modern vellum.

      STCN (2 copies); Cordier, Japonica, col. 38; Cordier, Sinica, col. 2067; Couto, The marvellous travels of Fernando Mendez Pinto across the Low Countries; Thiele 193. Second edition of a translation into Dutch of the travels of the Portuguese explorer Pinto through Asia. Over a period of 21 years Pinto travelled to Africa, India and China and even claimed to have been in Tibet. By his own account he was the first westerner to enter Japan. Although the historical accuracy of his account is debatable, his story is highly entertaining and remained very popular for long after his death.The first edition in Dutch was published in 1652 and translated by Jan Hendrik Glazemaker, most famous for his translations of the works of Descartes. Glazemaker, who did not know Portuguese, based himself on an earlier French translation by Bernard Figuier. Instead of providing an accurate translation, he edited the text to conform to the radical enlightenment ideals of Spinoza, supported by himself and his publisher. This stripped Pinto's travels of most of the Catholic elements, including miracles and saints. "Glazemaker excludes what cannot be explained from a scientific perspective" (Couto). What remains is the image of the ruthless Portuguese who used faith to justify their cruelty and greed. Contrasting with them is the book's description of a utopian China in which religions harmoniously coexist.The back of the engraved title-page, letterpress title-page and first page of the introduction were used for a writing exercise. The main allegorical figure of the engraved title-page has been perforated at the edges and the 14 following leaves, including the letterpress title-page and one engraving, contain small, nearly invisible perforations. With a restored tear in A1, some thumbing and some water stains in the margins including a larger water stain at the bottom corner of the second half of the book; a good copy.

        Gründlicher Bericht, von der LandesFürstlichenErtzBischöfflichen hoch- und gerechtigkeit über die Stadt Bremen, worin erwiesen, dass dieselbige seither dero Nahme bekandt gewesen, biss auff den heutigen Tag sich niemals eines Immediat unstreitigen ReichsStädischen prædicats noch Regierung gebrauchet, auch niemahls für eine Käyserl. freye ReichStadt gehalten &c. Zur Antwort auff einen von ihnen den Bremern hochgeschätzten, zwarten für langen Jahren durch ihren gewesenen Burgermeister, Weyland Heinrichen Krefftingh des Rechten Doctorn, uffgesetzeten, aber allererst für wenig Jahren kundgewordenen Discurs. Anno M. D.C. LII.

      - Utan ort, 1652. 4:o. ):(4, A4-Z4, Aa4-Zz4, 3A4-3D4, 3E3. Saknar det sista blanka bladet. Enstaka samtida understrykningar och marginalanteckningar med bläck. Hfrbd från slutet av 1800-talet, guldornerad rygg med röd titeletikett och upphöjda bind, alrotsmarmorerade pärmpapper. Ur Gustaf Holdo Stråles bibliotek, med hans exlibris, och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. VD17 23:311817Z. Klemming, Sveriges förhållanden, s. 106. Warmholtz 8305. Av hävd åtnjöt staden Bremen nästan full självständighet gentemot det omgivande ärkestiftet som den formellt tillhörde. När det stod klart att området i Westfaliska freden skulle komma att tillfalla Sverige fruktade man naturligt nog att detta självbestämmande inte skulle komma att respekteras av svenskarna. Man utverkade då ett frihetsbrev av kejsaren, 1646, i vilket Bremens ställning som fri stad formaliserades. Detta senkomna dokument (som lär ska ha kostat Bremens borgerskap en ansenlig summa) erkändes dock inte av Sverige, orsakerna till vilket detaljerat redovisas i denna skrift. Frågan kom att leda till två väpnade konflikter mellan Bremen och Sverige (första och andra Bremiska krigen, 1654 respektive 1666) vilka båda ledde till kompromisser till Sveriges fördel, men där Bremens självständighet trots allt bestod. Hermann Conring (1606-81) var professor i medicin i Helmstad från 1637 och i politik från 1650, och ansågs vara en av sin tids främsta jurister. Han verkade dessutom åren 1650-51 i Sverige som drottning Kristinas livläkare.

        The Fame and Confession of R: C: Commonly of the Rosie Cross with A Praeface Annexed Thereto and a short Declaration of their Physicall Work.

      Printed by J. M. for Giles Calvert at the black spread Eagle at the West end of Pauls., London 1652 - Hardcover. Small octavo. Modern brown calf-leather binding, with blind-stamped rules and devices to margins of boards, and raised bands with gilt rules and titling to spine. (lxx) + 64p. (A8 a-c8 d4 B-E8). Ornamental head-pieces and initials. The extremely scarce First English publication of what are arguably the most significant works of Rosicrucian Hermetica, the first and second Rosicrucian manifestos, the "Fama fraternitatis" and the "Confessio Fraternitatis." This edition includes an original Preface by Eugenius Philalethes (pseudonym of Thomas Vaughan; 1621 - 1666), a Welsh clergyman, philosopher, alchemist and - by reputation - a brother of the Rosy Cross, who apparently also arranged its publication. Vaughan was long thought to have translated the work himself, but Adam McLean has argued cogently in "The Impact of the Rosicrucian Manifestos in Britain," (and essay in "Das Erbe des Christian Rosenkreuz"), that it was probably actually taken from an older manuscript translation in the Scots dialect. Genuinely rare: Duveen lists a facsimile copy only; Mellon II, 102; Hall, 20; Gardner, 675. Later binding and endpapers in Fine condition, lacking first blank (A1) as almost always, a few headlines shaved, otherwise a lovely copy, the pages are fresh, unmarked and supple, and overall as close to Fine as could ever be found in a book of this vintage. A major and extremely rare work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        La Philosophie expliquée en tables.

      S.l.n.e., 1651-1652, 5 parties en 2 vol. in-4 (240 x 180 et 245 x 183) reliés plein veau fauve époque, dos à 5 nerfs, caissons ornés de fleurons dorés, double filet doré encadrant les plats. Reliures légèrement différentes (fleurons et titres aux dos (" Logiq / Scienc / Physiq " au 1 vol. et " Lescla / che " au second), hauteur, papiers de garde), forte épidermure des plats, mors supérieurs et nerfs accidentés, coiffe supérieure arasée au 2ème volume, mouillure aux coins inférieurs droits en début et fin d'ouvrage aux 2 volumes. - Livre entièrement gravé par Richer et monté sur onglets. Il se compose de : - Premier volume : 3 ff. bl. - 1 planche " Abrégé de la Philosophie en tables par Louis de Lesclache Avec privilège du Roy " illustrée de 4 angelots, dessinée par Chauveau et gravée par Richer - " De l'utilité des Tables " (2 pl. doubles) - 8 Tables de la Logique (pl. doubles) - 1 titre " Science générale " - " De l'utilité de la Science Générale " (1 pl. double) - 15 tables de la Science générale - 1 titre illustré " La physique expliquée " - " De l'utilité de la Physique " (1 pl. double) - 25 tables de la Physique (pl. doubles) - 1 f. bl. --- Deuxième volume : 1 f. bl. - 1 titre illustré " La Philosophie morale " - " De l'utilité de la Philosophie morale " (1 pl. double) - 50 tables de la Philosophie morale (pl. doubles) - 1 titre illustré " La Théologie naturelle " - " De l'utilité de la Théologie naturelle " (1 pl. double) - 10 tables de la Théologie naturelle (pl. doubles) - 1 Privilège du Roy illustré - 1 f. bl. D'après la comparaison que nous avons pu faire avec l'exemplaire numérisé de la Bibliothèque de Lyon, il manquerait à notre exemplaire le titre gravé général, la planche intitulée " De la Philosophie en Général " et la planche " L'ordre des tables de la Philosophie ". La première partie pourrait être la réédition de 1656, difficile à dire sans le titre général, mais les tableaux sont légèrement différents de l'exemplaire comparé. Il est néanmoins bien complet de toutes ses tables. Louis de Lesclache (1620 ? - 1671), philosophe mondain, conférencier à la mode, était surtout connu pour les Tables qui illustraient ses conférences et ses traités. Réf. biblio. : Brunet III-1011 " Il existe une édit. De la 1re part. sous la date de 1656 ".

        ASIAE DESCRIPTIO NOVA IMPENSIS 1652. [Shows All of Asia: Tartaria, Mongolia, Gob

      London 1652, Henrici Siele. A single sheet copper etched map. overall sheet size: ca. 47.5 x 35 cm., map size: ca 43.5 x. 34 cm., 4 old fold lines, now folded in half, original decle. edges on all sides, as issued, clean, solid image. R A R E. EARLY MID-17TH CENTURY MAP OF ALL ASIA & ALL S.E.ASIA This famous map of all Asia was executed by the celebrated engraver & cartographer, Johan Goddard [flourished 1645-71]. The map was then used in the most famous and stunning cartographic series, the "COSMOGRAPHIE" published in London, 1663. It was compiled by Dr.Peter Heylyn [1600-1662]. This series of superb atlases with maps of the whole world was the most grand scale and complete cartographic atlases of the entire world in the 17th century. A landmark and major contribution to world cartography. * The ASIAE map shows a very large geographical view of all classical Asia, from Mare Tartaricum at the extreme North to Adu Island just south of the Maldivias; from the extreme Eastern tip of Candia at the far West. just above Maris Mediterranei Paris which also shows Constanhip Polis [ancient Constantinoble] all the way East to Idos Matelotes and Duinas Colunas islands, just past the Philippines and Southeast of Japan. The map then shows fully all of Japan, its related islands, Formosa, Ryukyu [wrongly placed just below Formosa], all of the Philippines, Indonesia, Streto de Sunda and that area near Sumatra, Malayan peninsula before Singapore as listed, all of Indo-China [Cambodia, Laos & old Vietnam] again preceding the French era by 200 years, Siam, Burma and all of S.E. Asia, all of China, Tibet, Mongolia, Tartaria, the Great Wall, Corea, Central and S. Asia, Persia, Farsia, Cabil [sic], Arabian peninsula: Ayaman, Arabia Felix, Northeastern edge of Africa, all of the Holy Lands, Western & Eastern Europe, Russian, Crimea and the Steppe et al. * The map is remarkable in its great named and details of river confluences, cities, both small and large, names of mountains, lakes, and geographical features indicated such as mountains, lakes, rivers, larger cities and oceans named. For a person of the mid-17th century, this map gave a rather accurate [to the time] insight to the Asian world and its outstanding features. * While there is the usual cartographic distortion found in maps of this period, by and large it is a fairly close impression of what was where and the names are still mostly correct, as well as the 'geographic' look of the countries illustrated. That is to say this is not miles off from what is now. * COSMOGRAPHIE 1663: A rare and remarkably detailed map of the Asian continent by Johan Goddard, with the imprint of Anna Seile, Henry's widow, one of the few women to be involved in London's map publishing business. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: R.V.

        Kolberg ( Colbergh ) . Altkolorierter Kupferstich bei Merian.

       Seltener, altkolorierter Kupferstich Erik Jönssons, verlegt bei Merian. Im Mahagonirahmen unter Glas. Nach meiner Kenntnis 1652 entstanden. ( Grösse 33 x 21 cm / gerahmt 44 x 34 cm ). Dargestellt ist die Stadt Kolberg in Hinterpommern ( bezeichnet: Colbergh an der Ost See ) in einer frontalen Aufsicht von einer Höhe herab. Gezeigt und benannt werden : Die Saltzsiederey, Die Munde, Der Thumb, Das Rathauss, Mühlen, Schleuse, Persant Fluvio. Unter der Kartusche findet sich der Eintrag: \" Erich Jönsson Delineavit \". Erik Jönsson hatte in den Jahren um 1640 unter dem damaligen schwedischen Stadtkommandanten von Demmin, Conrad Mardefeld, eine aussichtsreiche Karriere als Fortifikationsingenieur begonnen. Diese Karriere war letztlich so erfolgreich, daß Jönsson später unter dem Namen Dahlberg geadelt wurde. Ihm verdanken wir eine nicht geringe Anzahl pommerscher und anderer norddeutscher Städteansichten in den Werken des Verlagshauses Merian. Die kleine Schriftzeile \" Erich Jönsson Delineavit\" verrät z.B. bei den Ansichten von Kolberg und Stralsund seine Urheberschaft. Der Mahagonirahmen neueren Datums leicht beschädigt. Das Blatt mit kleineren Erhaltungsmängeln ( Mittelfalz, 5 kleinere Flecken, am rechten Rand 3 kleinere Einrisse. Am unteren Rand ( außerhalb der Darstellung ) ein Ausriß ( hinterlegt ).

These two views illustrate the Dutch attack on the Portuguese city of Olinda in 1630. - Throughout most of the 17th century Portugal and Holland had a commercial agreement in which the Portuguese colonies in the New World produced sugar, and the Dutch distributed it across Europe using their vast commercial network. - After the kingdoms of Portugal and Spain merged, the Dutch lost their distribution monopoly and created the West Indian Company in 1621. - Shortly thereafter the Dutch began its attack on Pernambuco, first at Salvador and then at Olinda. - At top is a view of Povo (which later became Recife) and Olinda as seen from the sea. - At bottom is a large bird's-eye view of the region filled with ships, some engaged in battle, and the city of Povo already engulfed in flames.

IX, 443. - Pallavicino Ferrante, wurde 1615 als Mitglied der alten Adelsfamilie der Pallavicini in Piacenza geboren. Als Verfasser von Satiren und Schmähschriften wurde er 1644 in Avignon von päpstlichen Schergen enthauptet. Unter anderem schmähte er Papst Urban VIII Barberini, jenem Papst der laut Pallavicini Jesus den Bart geschnitten habe (barba). Außerdem schrieb er gegen die Jesuiten, die römische Inquisition, die die Verleger ruinierte, und nicht zuletzt gegen die Spanier, die zu jener Zeit Teile Italiens besetzt hielten. Pallavicino verbrachte sechs Monate im Kerker bevor er entkam. Dennoch setzte er seine Attacken auf den Papst fort. In dieser Zeit verfasste er das anti-jesuitische Werk `La Retorica delle puttane`. Die 15 Lektionen der alten Hure in seinem Roman beruhten auf jenem Handbuch, daß in Jesuitenschulen in Verwendung war. Das war ein Schritt zu viel gewesen. Abermals musste Pallavicino fliehen. Durch Verrat fiel er den Päpstlichen in Avignon in die Hände. Nach vierzehn Monaten Haft wurde er dort enthauptet.

      London : Printed by R D forJohn Williams, 1652 A fair copy of Thomas Fuller's Historie of the Holy Warre, bound with his Holy State and Profane State.

With folding map, decorative frontispiece/title page, and 20 engraved portraits and decorative initial capitals. The full leather binding has contemporary calf boards which have reinforced and repaired corners to the front board, and worn corners and edges to the back board. A new spine was added, probably in the 1800's and this is worn with some splitting to spine joints - particularly at the front. Internally there is a bookplate of Chelsea Public Libraries to the front pastedown with a note that this book was donated by Mrs Rutson. Contents: folding map (some repair); decorative frontispiece/title page (with browning, some dog-earing, and trimming); hand-drawn replica title page - including a very good drawing of the crown - which assumes that the edition is the 3rd edition - when it is probably 4th; text in 5 books - 286pp (browning to some sections, p207 with wrinkled edges; some spotting in Bk V); Preface to the Chronologie 1p; Table 20pp; Catalogue of authors 2pp; table index 6pp; Finis. Blank leaf. Decorative title page - The Holy State 1648; further title page - 3rd edition 1652; To the Reader 2pp; Index 2pp; text in 4 books with 17 engraved portraits (some damage to side margins with no text loss pp 17-33, Chelsea stamp to bottom margin p100, p122 some spot damage has affected small areas of text); title page 'The Profane State' 1652; text pp 343-510 with 3 engraved portraits (Chelsea stamp in margin p510); Finis (some staining to the bottom page edges of Profane State can be seen in bottom margin from time to time).

Fraaie Stedenatlas van Joan Blaeu, bestaande uit een gegraveerde titelpagina, 8 tussentitelpagina's, 129 -doorgaans dubbel paginagrote- kaarten en diverse gravures in de tekst. Zeldzame eerste druk van de enige Nederlandse uitgave van de grote Stedenatlas van Blaeu. De atlas bevat plattegronden, panorama's en beschrijvingen van honderden steden en dorpen in de Noordelijke Nederlanden. Er verscheen ook een deel met steden en dorpen onder de Spaanse heerschappij. De stedenatlassen van Nederland verkregen het hoogste aanzien van alle Blaeu atlassen in Nederland. De kaarten en plattegronden van Blaeu kenmerken zich door een heldere gravure en uniforme weergave. Vanaf de eerste uitgave genoten zij grote populariteit die lange tijd aanhield, de oppervlake van de meeste steden veranderde namelijk niet in de 18de eeuw en hierdoor bleven de kaarten actueel. Op sommige bladen zijn meerdere kleine plattegronden opgenomen, maar het overgrote deel bestaat uit fraai gegraveerde kaarten op folioformaat.)

Beautiful Town Atlas by Joan Blaeu, containing an engraved titlepage, 8 part-titles, 129 -mostly double fullpage- maps and several engravings in the text. Rare first edition of the only Dutch print of the large Town Atlas by Blaeu. The atlas contains maps, views and descriptions of hundreds of cities and villages in the Dutch Republic. Another volume was published with the cities and villages under the Spanish authority. Of all the Blaeu atlases the Town Atlases of the Netherlands are held in the highest esteem in the Netherlands. The maps and plans by Blaeu are known for their bright engraving and uniform appearance. From the first edition they received great popularity which continued to be so, the size of most cities did not change during the 18th century and because of that the maps remained valid. Multiple plans included on some pages but the greater part consists of beautifully engraved maps on large format.) Krogt, P. van der (2010). Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici Volume IV-1, p. 299-364.

        Relation de ce qui s'est passé de plus remarquable és missions des Peres de la Compagnie de Iesus, en la Nouuelle France, es annees 1650 & 1651

      Chez Sebastien Cramoisy, et Gabriel Cramoisy. ruë S. Iacques, aux Cicognes, Paris 1652 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. (iv) 146, (ii). ? A-H? I-K? L . Roman letter, some Italic. Cramoisy’s woodcut device on title, woodcut initials and headpieces, typographical ornaments. Light age yellowing, some light browning and spotting. A very good clean, entirely unsophisticated copy in contemporary limp vellum. Important and extremely rare first edition of this account by the Jesuit missionary Paul Ragueneau of the mission in Canada, including a highly important description of the mission and travels of Father Buteaux. After having been the subordinate of Jean de Brébeuf and Jérôme Lalemant for eight years, Father Ragueneau became superior of the Huron mission in 1645. We owe to him the "Relations des Hurons" for 1646, 1647, 1648, that of 1649 which recounts the destruction of the mission and the martyrdom of Fathers Brébeuf and Gabriel Lalemant, and that of 1650 which describes the ardours of the winter spent at Île Saint-Joseph (Christian Island) and the emigration and resettlement of the Hurons under the protection of the fort at Quebec. This work is of particular importance as it records the state of the missions in New France after the defeat of the mission by the Iroquois nation. The second part is the journal of the travels of Father Buteaux to the Attikamegues. Buteaux was a French-born Jesuit who came to Canada in 1634 and was assigned to Trois-Rivières, where he ministered until his death in 1652. "The annihilation of the Huron missions in 1649 induced the missionary to reply to the pressing invitations extended by the Attikamegues who were established in the upper St. Maurice basin. "In all these regions," wrote Buteux, "there are many other Tribes, – more than we can baptize, even if we had still forty years to live; and those people have no intercourse with us. It is from them that the Hurons, before their own country was desolated, obtained nearly all their Beavers, – the supply of which, being no longer diverted elsewhere, will now come to our French settlements, if the Iroquois do not disturb our repose." On 27 March 1651 Father Buteux, accompanied by two Frenchmen and some 40 Attikamegues, undertook the journey northward. The expedition lasted three months. The travellers reached regions inhabited by tribes who had had no contact with white men. Wishing to go as far as Hudson Bay the following year, Father Buteux had presents sent "to the Captains of some Tribes further to the North." On 18 June 1651 he was back at Trois-Rivières. During July he set out on a mission in the direction of Tadoussac and Gaspé. At the end of the account of his journey to the source of the St. Maurice, the missionary had expressed his desire to push on further with his evangelizing explorations: "I hope next Spring to make the same journey, and to push still further toward the North Sea, to find there new tribes and entire new Nations wherein the light of the faith has never yet penetrated. Since that journey, the Iroquois have entered that country which seemed almost inaccessible" (Lake Kisagami). In a letter to Father Ragueneau he added: "I would never have thought that they could have found or reached that lake with their canoes. On the journey that I made to these regions, we walked about twenty days on the snow, before coming to it." Dictionary of Canadian Biography. He died a few months after this account during his following mission journey. His party was attacked by a troop of Iroquois lying in ambush. He was shot and tomahawked. An excellent copy of an exceptionally rare and important work. BM STC Fr. C17th p. 269, J213. Sabin 67498 JFB. R13 French [Attributes: Soft Cover]
