        China Veteribus Sinarum Regio nunc Incolis Tame dicta.

      Amsterdam: 1652-53 - Copper engraving. Original colour. Fine condition, map has a small stain. An elegantly engraved map of the region with the eastern part of China (bounded in the north-west by the Great Wall) dominated by several large lakes. The fictitious Chaimay Lacus is shown with numerous rivers flowing south into India and Siam. Korea is depicted as a strangely shaped island separated from the mainland by a narrow strait. Taiwan is located in a roughly correct position, named as both Pakan al I. Formosa and Tayoan. Korea, however, is still an island, and Japan consists only of three islands. The map is richly embellished with European sailing ships and Chinese sampans, a decorative distance scale, and a title cartouche flanked by a Chinese man and woman. Based on Jesuit surveys, the map represents the next major revision in the cartography of China after Ortelius' 1584 map. Published in the Nouvel Atlas.

        Le due Aggrippine.,

      Venetia, Appresso li Guerigli 1652. - kl.-8°. 407 S. Pgmt. d. Zt. Tit am unteren Rand um ca. 1,5 cm. beschnitten. pp. vgl. Hayn-Gotend. 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.

        THE HISTORY OF THE VALORUS AND WITTY KNIGHT ERRANT DON-QUIXOTE, OF THE MANCHA

      Printed by Richard Hodgkinsonne, for Andrew Crooke, at the Green Dragon in Pauls Churchyard, London 1652 - Second complete edition in English and the first edition of both parts issued together. Translated by Thomas Shelton. Folio (286 x 189 mm), collation: [8], 137, [5] 138-214, 216-244, 244-273. Signatures: )(4,)()(4, A-Aaaa4. Lacking final leaf (provided in manuscript facsimile) and final blank. Variant title page lacks Andrew Crooke's address, priority between the two, if any, is unknown. Additional printed title to Second Part. Modern binding in full leather to style. Engraved title to first part soiled and with inner margin extended. Some marginal worming and dampstaining, a few contemporary marginal notes and the occasional tear, but all text legible. Unusually generous margins and sharp impressions throughout. Overall, a solid copy of one of the masterpieces of world literature. "One of those universal works which are read by all ages at all times." (PMM 111) Published in two volumes a decade apart (in 1605 and 1615), Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature to emerge from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of Western literature, it is often cited as the first modern novel. The Shelton translation is generally considered the English translation that "realizes Cervantes' manner more nearly than any successor." (DNB) Grolier, Langland to Wither, 213. Pforzheimer 140.

        Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica Ac Hydrographica Tabula Autore. N. I. Piscator.

      1652 - Superb hand color; excellent condition. Very rare; separately published. One of the most richly embellished, Dutch world maps acquirable today. This artistically ambitious work with vignettes along all four borders depicts 12 Roman Emperors on richly caparisoned horses in the top and bottom. In the four corners are allegorical female figures astride animals symbolizing the continents. In the side panels are city views and illustrations of indigenous peoples, including North American natives. Jerusalem, Rome, Amsterdam, Havana and Mexico City are among the cities depicted. Though geographically similar to Blaeu and Jansson¿s world maps plotted on the Mercator Projection, Visscher¿s work provided important updating, notably throughout eastern Canada, including Hudson¿s Bay, where important explorations are reflected. Also, Tierra del Fuego is more clearly seen here as a distinct landmass, now no longer connected at all to the mythical Southern Continent. Curiously, the St. Lawrence River extends as far as the mid-point of the present-day United States, where it is fed by a lake. The map¿s engraver is not named but was probably Pieter Goos, who engraved the companion hemispherical world map published a year earlier (Shirley 346) that is in a similar style. Also supporting Goos¿s involvement in both maps is that the same error, dating the discovery of America 1592/ 1599, is repeated on both maps. In 1666, Goos would produce one of the most beautiful sea atlases of the Dutch period. Shirley 350.

        The History of the Valorous and Witty-Knight-Errant, Don Quixote, Of the Mancha. Translated out of the Spanish [by Thomas Shelton]; now newly Corrected and Amended.

      London: Printed by Richard Hodgkinsonne for Andrew Crooke, 1652 - Folio (278 ×182 mm). Contemporary brown calf, spine gilt in compartments, brown morocco label. Spine and corners skilfully repaired, boards lightly rubbed and scuffed, title page expertly restored where the top edge was cut away affecting part of the word "history", closed repaired tears to each plate, handwritten notes to front free endpaper and plate II, contents a bit toned. A good copy. Extra-illustrated with 8 engraved folding plates. Second complete edition in English. The Shelton translation was the most popular version of Don Quixote circulating in England during the 17th century. Part I was originally published in 1612 and part II in 1620. Shelton's "original was the Velpius edition published in Brussels in 1607. The signs of haste in the translation, which took Shelton only forty days, do not hide his verve, command of Spanish, and knowledge of Spain" (ODNB). A third edition of this translation appeared in 1675. A variant issue of this edition has Andrew Crooke's address "at the Green-Dragon in Pauls Church-yard" added in the imprint: priority between the two, if any, is not known.

        Della Fisonomia Dell’Huomo, Et La Celeste Libri Sei. Tradotti di Latino in Volgare. Con la Fisonomia Naturale di Monsignor Giovanni Ingegneri.

      Venice: Heirs of Gio Battista Combi: 1652 - 8vo., 3 parts in 1, [xxxii], 598pp, [blank leaf]; [xvi], 190pp., [blank leaf]; 134pp. engraved title, engraved portrait of the author & 153 engravings in the text (30 full-page; incl. repeats). engraved title vignette. woodcut ornaments & initials, neatly bound in later blue cloth over marbled boards very slightly rubbed on extremities, with remains of an early original morocco title label professionally restored to spine. A remarkably clean copy with excellent bright impressions of the engravings in a good tight later binding. (Osleriana 3714; Brunet IV 825-26; Garrison & Morton 150; Wellcome I 5196-5202; See Mortimer, Harvard 16th Century Italian Books, 398 (this edition mentioned in the notes)). Giambattista della Porta, sometimes know as Giovanni Battista della Porta, was born in Vico Equense, Italy, just outside Naples, on November 1, 1535, the son of a government official. Educated at home, he became well learned on his own and travelled extensively, often cultivating an air of mystery. In Naples, he founded the Academia Secretorum Naturae, otherwise known as the Accademia dei Oziosi, which was later suppressed by the Inquisition. In Naples in 1610, he helped to reestablish the Acaddemia dei Lincei, an organization founded for the pursuit of mathematics and natural sciences. He wrote a number of books on topics ranging from cryptography and occultism to alchemy, distillation, and phytotherapy. He died in Naples on February 4, 1615. Physiognomy, or the notion that a person's temperament and character can be deduced from the shape of his or her face or body, was first proposed by Classical Greek philosophers and physicians, and Aristotle wrote about the concept extensively. By the Renaissance, the science of physiognomy had been combined with astrology to become rather complex. Giambattista della Porta's work, De humana physiognomonia, first published in 1586, summarized the previous literature on physiognomy and attempted to make a strong case for it, along with numerous illustrations. He states, for instance, that a man with sheep-like features would have personality characteristics similar to that of a sheep, in his view a stupid and impious animal. Such images in physiognomy literature are certainly on the fringe of anatomical illustration, but Porta's text goes into great detail about the shape of the brow, the length of the nose, and the breadth of the chin. It also plays a role in the history of comparative anatomy, an enormous field in and of itself. The numerous woodcut text illustrations draw comparisons between the physical features of men and animals in an attempt to relate their nature. These comparisons still persist in our vocabulary in adjectives such as bovine, ovine, lupine, aquiline, assinine, porcine, &c. Mortimer suggests that the engravings in this edition were probably copied from the Vicenza woodcuts used by Pietro Paolo Tozzi. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Mit griechisch-lateinischem Paralleltext. Das Werk umfaßt den Zeitraum von ca. 1118-1176. Cinnamus war Sekretär des Kaisers Manuel I. Komnenos (1118-1180). Manuel I. war von 1143-1180 byzantinischer Kaiser und gilt als einer der letzten bedeutenden Herrscher von Byzanz. Er forcierte die byzantinische Expansionspolitik auf dem Balkan, wobei jedoch sein Plan für ein ungarisch-byzantinisches Bündnis von ihm selbst um 1170 aufgegeben wurde. Dafür war Manuels Politik im Osten umso erfolgreicher. Dort gewann er Kilikien und, nach einem Konflikt mit dem Kreuzfahrerstaat Antiochia, das Fürstentum Antiochia, das byzantinisches Lehen wurde. Die byzantinische Präsenz in Anatolien wurde in seiner Regierungszeit verstärkt, allerdings kam es 1176 zur Schlacht von Myriokephalon, in der Manuel unterlag.- Innendeckel mit Bibl.-Schildchen, Titel mit Bibl.-Stempel.

        Examen de Ingenios par alas Sciencias. Donde se muestra la diferencia de habilidades, que ay en elos hombres; y el genero de letras, que a cada uno responde en particular

      Balanced individuals are mediocrities, one of the most important scientific works from Spain. 1652. Leyden. Juan Maire. In 12vo. 8 ff. + 464. Contemporary calf, raised bands to spine, tooled in gilt, lettering piece, some rubbing. A fine copy generally, only browned, stronger on some leaves.An important work by Huarte, first printed in 1575; the title pages reads "Third edition", however more likely the fifth in Spanish. Palau says of this edition "Linda edicion elzeviriana". Huarte´s (1529 ?" 1588) Examen is \'\'the first attempt to show the connection between psychology and physiology\'\' (Garrison-Morton); he attempts to show that men are equal, however the bodily humours occur in different proportions to each man, factors like his alimentation, nationality, education, and growing-up events. The work was translated into English -"Examen de ingenios. The examination of mens wits, in which by discovering the varieties of natures"-, French, German, Latin, and Italian. His work was influential to Bacon and Cervantes.Palau, 16493.

Collection of four pamphlets on the First Anglo-Dutch War, the first of the four wars between England and the Dutch Republic, caused by disputes over trade and fought entirely at sea between 1652 and 1654.The first pamphlet starts as a conversation discussing the unfortunate skirmish between the Dutch Admiral Maarten Tromp and the English Admiral Robert Blake and the upcoming war with England. The well-informed merchant brings up the seven articles the English proposed to regulate the trade and also the 36 articles the States-General offered as a counter proposal.The second pamphlet is the first edition of a follow-up to the previous conversation with the same three men. They talk about the courage of Admiral Tromp and the reluctance of the English to meet him head on. The conversation ends when they hear the devastating news about the storm that broke up Tromp's fleet and resulted in the loss of eleven of his ships (4 August 1652). The third item is the only edition of a letter from Admiral Tromp to the States General about his recent victory against the English fleet led by Admiral Blake on 10 December 1652, known as the Battle of Dungeness.The fourth is a pamphlet about the early naval heroism of the Dutch ca. 1440, intended as an example of naval courage to inspire those fighting in the First Anglo-Dutch War.All in good condition, with water stains on several pages of the first pamphlet and the foot margin of the third damaged by water.

        L'Hydrographie ou Description de l'Eau c'est a dire des Mers, Golfes, Lacs, Destroits et Rivieres

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1652. Handcoloured engraved map, 400 x 545 mm. (plate size), a little rubbed at right-hand margin yet a lovely impression, framed. Stately double-hemisphere map by Nicolas Sanson, cartographer extraordinaire and geographer to Louis XIII. Sanson's principal historical importance lies in his role as a disseminator of knowledge: 'His maps, geographical tables and teaching captured the attention of persons no less eminent than Richelieu, Fouquet, the chancellor Seguier, and Cardinal Mazarin…The regard of such illustrés reveals Sanson as an important conduit of geographical knowledge to centres of power in France, which at this time was at its most important period of expansion in Canada, the West Indies, Africa, and the Near East' (Pedley, Imago Mundi 44). As a youth with a Jesuit education, Sanson displayed precocious intelligence and an unusual affinity for mapmaking. These valuable attributes attracted the attention of Cardinal Richelieu, then first minister of the king, who introduced Sanson to the inner circle of Louis XIII. So began a contradictory life of royal patronage and personal poverty. Sanson undertook significant financial and personal risk in coming to Paris and issued over 300 maps in the course of his career. His prodigious output and widespread prestige began a shift in European map production and heralded the end of the Dutch domination of the cartographic market during the seventeenth-century. In its depiction of the antipodes the map is vague and amorphous, demonstrating an indifferent treatment of the Dutch discoveries in Western Australia during the early seventeenth-century. As with so many world maps and globes of the era, the southern hemisphere is dominated by an imagined Terre Australe of vast proportions to offset the landmass of the northern hemisphere.

      London:: Thos Newcomb for John Clark,, 1652.. Second edition of a work first published the preeding year and the first to include the attack on Harvey.. 8vo, [16], 207, [5], 209-267, [8]. Title page printed in red and black. Bound in early vellum; a few contemporary marginal notes, some soiling, last blank leaf mounted to rear free endpaper. Krivatsy 9951; Russell (1963) 728; Wing R1947; Keynes Harvey 358; Keynes Browne 233; Osler 4559. This is the first printed commentary on Harvey's book and Ross adds a letter from another of Harvey's critics, James Primrose. Harvey, of course, discovered the circulation of the blood and wrote his De Generatione (1651) on the generation of animals. That was also the first book on midwifery by an Englishman. Ross (1590-1654) was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. He was the first to translate the Koran into English and was called "the vigilant watchdog of conservatism and orthodoxy" by Richard Westfall. He attacked Thomas Browne (defending, for instance, the beliefs that crystal is a sort of fossilized ice, and that garlic hinders magnetism) and many other contemporary ideas. In other controversies he took on Sir Kenelm Digby, Thomas Hobbes, and William Harvey. (See wikipedia).
