CAMOENS, Luis de.
London: Humphrey Moseley,, 1655. Vasco da Gama's discoveries in epic verse Folio (276 x 169 mm). Early polished calf, spine with five raised bands, red morocco label. With 3 engraved portraits, as issued, that of Prince Henry of Portugal, folding, trimmed (slight loss of fore edge) and mounted as frontispiece, portrait of Camoens with verses, and of Vasco da Gama by Cross (slightly trimmed). Early 20th-century bookplate of Erroll Hay; later book label of Eric Gerald Stanley (1923-2018), Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon and Fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford. Skilful restoration of extremities, a little stripping to boards, leaves A2-4 a little frayed in fore margin not affecting text, a few scattered marks internally, overall a very good copy. First edition in English of Os Lusíadas (1572), the epic poem describing Portugal's rise from obscurity to greatness. Camoens based his Virgilian epic around Vasco da Gama's discovery of the sea route from Europe to India via the Cape of Good Hope in 1497-98, coloured by his own experiences during the 14 years he spent in the East (1553-67), including wintering on Hormuz Island, where, Burton argues in Camoens: His Life and his Lusiads, he was exposed to Persian literature. Boies Penrose calls The Lusiad "one of the noblest epics" and "the national poem par excellence and the supreme epic of Portugal's conquests in the East" (Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance 1420-1620, New York, 1962, pp. 92 and 359). The English translator, Sir Richard Fanshawe, part of the grouping often called the cavalier poets, was an acc … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIEUHOF, Johan.
[8], 208, 258, [10] pp.Third edition, in the original Dutch, of "the definitive account" (Howgego) of the embassy that the VOC (Dutch East India Company) sent to the Emperor of China, the entire trip occupying the years 1655 to 1657. Nieuhof's eyewitness account, first published in 1665, was the first extensively illustrated book describing China and is, among works on China, "bis heute eines der bedeutendsten und gesuchtesten" (Walravens). The second part gives a general description of the Chinese empire, including botany and zoology. The first part covers the East Indies and Southeast Asia before going on to China itself. Japan, Korea and Formosa appear as well.Nieuhof served as steward, artist and chronicler on Pieter de Goyer and Jacob de Keyzer's VOC embassy to the Chinese Emperor. The party got a more intimate view of China than almost any other Dutch visitors of the 17th century, and the breadth of Nieuhof's interests and the large number of drawings he made provided a wealth of new material that makes the present work an essential primary source.Good copy with the owners stamp of Friedrich Emanuel Hurter (b. 1787; ''Reichshistoriograff in Wien'') on the verso of the frontispiece and his signature on the first flyleaf, dated 1805.l Howgego G-85, N-25; Landwehr & V.d.

Wilkins John
SARL ABRAXAS-LIBRIS, 1655. Condition: Sehr gut. Sehr seltenes Werk, hier voll von seinem Titelbild, das Copernicus, Kepler und Galileo präsentiert. „Die Arbeit richtet sich eher an die breite Öffentlichkeit als an Experten auf diesem Gebiet. Ziel ist es, die Vision des l'univers , die wir Copernicus, Kepler und Galileo schulden, bekannt zu machen. Das Hauptargument ist, dass der Mond keine helle Scheibe ist, sondern eine Welt mit einer Landschaft wie der der Erde. Natürlich ist Wilkins nicht der erste, der eine solche Theorie aufstellt; Galileo hat es beispielsweise auf ähnliche Weise angegeben. Vielleicht überraschender ist, dass er den Mond für einen bewohnbaren Planeten hält und voraussagt, dass eines Tages die Reise dorthin möglich sein wird. Auch hier ist Wilkins nicht der erste, der diesen Vorschlag macht, aber er ist typisch für seine Denkweise und lässt seine Gedanken zwischen Ideen wandern, die andere für zu unkonventionell gehalten hätten, um sie in Betracht zu ziehen. ' In-12 gebundenes volles Pergament (gebunden und gewaschen 1861 gemäß einem Hinweis auf der Wache). Laut einer Notiz auf der ersten Platte wurde das Buch "1861 gewaschen und gebunden". Der Umschlag ist in vollem Pergament, wahrscheinlich der Genesung: Reste der Handschrift sind noch perfekt sichtbar. Diese im 19. und frühen 20.

Wilkins John
SARL ABRAXAS-LIBRIS, 1655. Condition: Ottime condizioni. Opera molto rara, qui completa con il suo frontespizio che presenta Copernico, Keplero e Galileo. 'Il lavoro è rivolto al grande pubblico piuttosto che agli esperti in materia, e il suo scopo è quello di diffondere la visione l'univers che dobbiamo a Copernico, Keplero e Galileo. L'argomento principale è che la Luna non è un disco luminoso ma piuttosto un mondo con un paesaggio come quello della Terra. Ovviamente Wilkins non è il primo a presentare una simile teoria; per esempio Galileo lo indicava in modo simile. Forse più sorprendentemente, pensa che la Luna sia un pianeta abitabile e prevede che un giorno il viaggio verso di esso sarà possibile. Anche qui Wilkins non è il primo a dare questo suggerimento, ma è tipico del modo in cui pensa, permettendo alla sua mente di vagare tra idee che altri avrebbero trovato troppo non convenzionali da considerare. " Pergamena rilegata In-12 (rilegata e lavata nel 1861 secondo una nota sulla guardia). Secondo una nota del 1 ° appartamento, il libro fu "lavato e rilegato nel 1861". La copertina è in pergamena piena, probabilmente di recupero: resti di calligrafia sono ancora perfettamente visibili. Questa tecnica, abbastanza comune nel XIX e all'inizio del XX secolo, a volte produce risultati imperfetti. Qui, tuttavia, l'associazione è stata eseguita con cura e non presenta difetti.

SARL ABRAXAS-LIBRIS, 1655. Condition: Very Good. Very rare work, here full of its frontispiece presenting Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo. 'The work is aimed at the general public rather than experts on the subject, and its aim is to popularize the vision of L'univers that we owe to Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo. The main argument is that the Moon is not a bright disc but rather a world with a landscape like that of Earth. Of course Wilkins is not the first to put forward such a theory; for example Galileo indicated it in a similar way. Perhaps more surprisingly, he thinks that the Moon is a habitable planet and predicts that one day the trip to it will be possible. Here too Wilkins is not the first to make this suggestion but it is typical of the way he thinks, allowing his mind to wander among ideas that others would have found too unconventional to consider. ' In-12 bound full parchment (bound and washed in 1861 according to a note on the guard). According to a note on the first plate, the book was "washed and bound in 1861". Its cover is in full parchment, probably of recovery: remains of handwriting are still perfectly visible. This technique, fairly common in the 19th and early 20th centuries, sometimes produces imperfect results. Here, however, the binding has been carefully done and suffers from no defects.

Blaeu, Guijelmus & Joan.
J. Blaeu, Amsterdam, 1655. Copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash. This detailed map of Japan was published by Joan & Guiljelmus Blaeu in the the famous atlas ‘Novus Atlas Sinensis’ in Amsterdam 1655. The map is based on the cartographic sources by the missionary Martino Martino, who comes from Trient in South Tirol. M. Martini lived from 1643-509 in China and published afterwards his ‘Atlas Sinensis’, which was published 1655 for the first by Blaeu as volume VI in their ‘Atlas Novus’. However Martini was never himself in Japan his map, one could guess that he received during his stay in China maps of Japan, which he was in his Japan map. Further we recognize the use of Dutch place names for the northeast coast of Honshu.

Women Printers]. Augustine, Saint.
PrintedÉby Mrs Blageart 1655. Franoise Blageart (fl. 1633-1655) was a Parisian printer of at least eleven Catholic texts in English for an English recusant market. Blageart often employed false imprints, however, and the number of titles printed by her may be higher. At least seven of the books Blageart printed concerned Saint Augustine and the Augustinian Order, including a translation of AugustineÕs Confessions by Sir Tobie Matthew in 1638 (Allison and Rogers, 535) and an abridged version of that translation in the same year (536). She was married to JŽrome Blageart, a linguist and scholar of Arabic who also printed at least one book: Discours hapned betwene an hermite called Nicephorus & a yong lover called Tristan, a translation of Jean-Pierre Camus published in 1630. BlageartÕs husband seems to have died sometime between 1630 and 1633, as her imprint appeared on a text as Òthe widow BlageartÓ for the first time in an English translation of Camus under the title The spirituall director disinteressed in 1633. The last two works known to have been printed by Blageart are the present book and Schism dis-armÕd of the defensive weapons, both bearing the date 1655. Twelvemo.

L'Ecôle des filles
o.J, 1655. ?) auf dem Vorderdeckel etw. beschabt u. bestoßen, vord. Gelenk aufgeplatzt, Rücken am Fuß mit Fehlstelle (ca. 1 cm). Gay-Lemonnyer II, 62. - Sehr seltene Ausgabe des berühmtem Erotikons, dessen komplette erste Auflage (1655) auf dem Scheiterhaufen verbrannt worden war. Als Autor wird häufig Michel Millot genannt, der aber wohl, zusammen mit Jean L'Ange, nur Herausgeber und Auftraggeber des Erstdrucks war. Späteren Nachdrucken war häufig ein "Madrigal" zu Ehren des Autors vorangesetzt, das Millots Namen in "Mililot" oder, wie hier, "Mililorme" verballhornte. Dem titelgebenden Dialog zweier junger Frauen über sexuelle Themen sind ca. 30 weitere "galante" Texte von Pierre-Corneille Blessebois, Roger de Rabutin Bussy, Pietro Aretino sowie verschiedenen anonymen Autoren angefügt. Bis in die Abfolge hinein sind sie mit dem Inhalt eines unter dem Titel "Le cabinet d'amour et de Venus" und dem fingierten Druckort "Cologne, chez les Héritiers de Pierre Marteau" erschienenen Werks identisch. Die auf dem Titelblatt genannten "trente sept Belles Figure (sic) Gravées en Taille Douce" existieren nach Gay-Lemonnyer nicht. Sowohl Gay-Lemonnyer als auch Brunet (Imprimeurs imaginaires, S. 19) zitieren die vorliegende Ausgabe lediglich nach einem bei der Versteigerung der Sammlung Jules Auvillain (Paris 1865) angebotenen Exemplar. Weitere Nachweise für die Existenz des Drucks kannten sie nicht ("une édition ..., qui n'avait pas encore cité" - Brunet).

Harsdörffer, Georg Philipp; Übers. und Bearb.)
Frankfurt und Hamburg, Johann Naumann, 1655. Erste Ausgabe der Übersetzung und Bearbeitung des 'Traité de la cour' von Eustache du Refuge, erstmals anonym 1616 erschienen. Das Werk ist nicht nur eine praktische Unterweisung für das Verhalten am Hof, sondern es erweitert den Rahmen über die "gesellschaftliche Klugheit" hinaus zur "Privatklugheit", wie es in den frühen bürgerlichen Romanen Weises und seiner Nachfolger später popularisiert wird. Interessant sind die Abschnitte über die Affekte des Menschen, ferner die Kapitel "Von der Ordnung der Gemütsneigung" und "Von Erkantniß unserer Kräfften". Das Werk ist ein hervorragendes Beispiel für eine Literatur, die versucht, die bürgerliche Oberschicht für ein Amt in dem sich festigenden absolutistischen Staat zu befähigen. – In einem Wappeneinband der Edlen Harsdorf (oder: Harsdörffer) von Enderndorf. Diese Familie, der auch der Übersetzer und Bearbeiter Georg Philipp Harsdörffer (1607-1658) angehörte, war ab 1450 bis zum Ende der reichsstädtischen Zeit im Jahre 1806 im „Inneren Rat" der Stadt Nürnberg vertreten.

REMBRANDT van Rijn.
[Abraham's sacrifice].[Amsterdam], Rembrandt, 1655. 4to leaf (16.5 x 14 cm). Etching and drypoint on European laid paper (plate size 15.7 x 13.2 cm). Mounted with 2 hinges on a piece of thick cardboard. A fine impression of one of Rembrandt's most famous prints, "Abraham's sacrifice", illustrating Genesis 22: 10-12, where Abraham, after god ordered him to sacrifice his only son Isaac, raises his knife to do so but is stayed by an angel who reveals that it was only a test of his obedience to god. In the Bible, the angel merely speaks to Abraham, but Rembrandt made the scene much more intimate, with the angel reaching around Abraham from behind almost in an embrace, holding his left arm (with the knife), just above the elbow and his right arm (holding Isaac's head) near the wrist. The Dutch States Bible of 1637 does place the angel behind Abraham, but still only speaking to him. Rembrandt made the etching in 1655 and no variant states are known. It differs greatly from his 1635 painting of the same subject, where the figures are not so closely united and neither Abraham nor the angel expresses such tenderness. The present example of the etching retains the finest lines very clearly (for example, in the background along the edge of the angel's left wing, between the highest point of the wing and the top of Abraham's head) and shows considerable burr, giving the scene a powerful richness and contrast.The etching has two collectors' stamps on the back: those of Count Johann Nepomuk Ernst Harrach (1756-1829) and Senator Johann Karl Brönner (1738-1812).

(Millard). Working for the Manufacture des Gobelins and on his own account, Le Pautre executed much work for Louis XIV. The work also provides a survey of Paris fashion in interior decoration fairly early in the reign of Louis XIV and helped to determine and establish the richly ornamental style we associate with Louis and his circles.

He wrote for a broad public, and many of his works were illustrated with emblematic copperplates by the greatest Dutch artists, especially Adriaen van de Venne, responsible for many plates in the present edition. The book includes Cats's Proteus, of Sinne- en minnebeelden (1618), Houwelyck (1625) Spiegel (1631) and many more. Works like these delivered him the name "father Cats", due to the educational and pedagogical character of his texts.The binding can be ascribed to the so-called "star bindery".

A series of 4 colour drawings of Manchurian(?) scenes. All mounted on Dutch paper probably from the period 1650-1660. The paper of the drawings themselves ranges, in three cases, from 27 x 16 cm to 30 x 19.5 cm; the fourth has been cut down to 16.5 x 17.5 cm. The drawings show the following (all outdoor scenes):1) a dignitary on horseback, with his attendant on foot carrying a parasol.2) 2 ladies, 1 holding the other's sleeve, with a flowering tree and an octagonal stone basin(?).3) a lady with a flowering plant in a basket, with a deer at her side.4) 2 ladies: 1 with a fan; the other leaning on a table with a vase of flowers.All 4 backed with matching European paper watermarked with a 7-point foolscap above "4" and 3 balls. The closest matches in the literature, Laurentius 431-437 (especially 431 and 435), date from 1651 to 1658.

In 1639 Glauber left his native Germany because of the disturbances of the Thirty Years' War and moved to Amsterdam where he "outfitted what was surely the most impressive laboratory in Europe" (DSB). He is particularly interesting because he stands between the chemists who deliberately followed alchemy and those who took a modern scientific approach.

Markham, Gervase
London: Francis Grove for Martha Harrison, 1655. Second Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary sheep. Very good. [xvi] including the woodcut frontispiece 285 [1] pages. 14 x 9 cm. Profusely illustrated with charming woodcuts, this rare and pragmatic seventeenth century English treatise deals with every aspect of fowling and Falconry while including, in the title, a nod to the Americas and the need for a work devoted to self-sufficiency - (the first dedication mentions 'the blessed Plantation of Virginia'). Markham explores the various methods of bird-catching, including descriptions and illustrations of the use of nets, springs, decoys, guns, and hounds; with the training and grooming of hounds and 'water doggs'. Baiting with 'Beafe, Mutton, Veale, or any other kinde of Fleshe', along with Nux Vomica (Homeopathic preparation) is used in taking Land-Fowl. Bird calling is described while some of the fowl mentioned are Pheasants, Ravens, Partridges, Crows, Sparrows, Gray-Plover, Robins, Starlings, and Linnets. Chapter twelve is entirely devoted to Hawking. An unsophisticated contemporary binding that has stood the test of time as this would have been used in the field and most commonly found heavily restored or in modern bindings. Later spine label lettered 'Fowling', contemporary annotation, possible shelf mark, to title-page, slightly rubbed with some worm damage and rubbing to boards. Both pastedowns sprung but still present, with with early ownership inscription of 'J. Cooke Gaiborough' to the verso of the upper board.

Woodcut initials, and section ornaments. "Imprimatur" leaf from the Royal College of Surgeons facing title. ~ FIRST EDITION. A classic work on diet and nutrition, discussing the quality, use, and preparation of fish, fruit, dairy products, bread, meat, and the preparation of drinks. Health's Improvement was written in the last decade of the 16th century but remained as manuscript notes until publication in 1655 "by T. Newcomb for S. Thomson". "Mouffet, a successful Elizabethan physician with paracelsian leanings, left a number of unfinished manuscripts at his death in 1604, among them one entitled Health's Improvement... which was edited in 1655 by his younger colleague Christopher Bennet" (Robb-Smith, "Doctors at Table" cited in Maclean). Bennet died in 1655, and it is unclear if he lived to see this finished book, though he clearly thought highly of Moffett's work, as he states in his preface, "I may safely say, upon this subject I know of none that hath done better; and were Platina, Apicius, and Alexandrinus, with all the rest of the Dietetick writers now alive, they would certainly own, and highly value this Discourse" (page [2]). Moffet, whose name is variously spelled (see Maclean), is famous for two books - this one, and his book on insects, Insectorum Sive Minimorum Animalium (London, 1634). He is also known as the father of "Little Miss Muffet" of nursery rhyme fame. ~ Rebound in full brown calf, with ra … [Click Below for Full Description]

Parent, J
Lille, 1655. A remarkable, unpublished chronicle of the legal evolution of Lille, borne witness by the members of the Magistrat, or Loi, who are listed by name almost every year from 1303-1655. The Loi was led by the rewart (respector amicitiae), who, in addition to being the most visible of the voting constituent of the Conclave, also served as chief of the civic militia.1 Each year the requirements for inclusion in the Conclave differed, but for the highly active mid-16th century, the members were the 12-strong bench of échevins (municipal alderman), the council, comprising four voir-jurés and eight jurés, and finally the eight huit-hommes. Non-voting members of the Conclave included five apaiseurs, five gard'orphènes, and several civil servants, among which were treasurers, conseillers, procurer-syndics, and two clerks--one for civil and one for criminal affairs.2 The present manuscript lists many of the members of each year's Loi, beginning in 1301. First listed, following the rewart, are the échevins, who had a hand in virtually all quotidian civic matters, from chimney inspections to toll collections;3 then conseillers, or city jurists; then the huit-hommes, who set tax structures and quotas at the discretion of the aldermen, and were always of course eight in number; then the voir-jurés and jurés, who arbitrated with the aldermen on most non-judicial issues; finally the apaiseurs, who settled the more trivial disputes among townspeople, and the gard'orphènes, who had the highly specialized duty of managing the property of bourgeois orphans. Other nonvoting members oc … [Click Below for Full Description]

REMBRANDT van Rijn.
[Abraham's sacrifice].[Amsterdam], Rembrandt, 1655. 4to leaf (16.5 x 14 cm). Etching and drypoint on European laid paper (plate size 15.7 x 13.2 cm). Mounted with 2 hinges on a piece of thick cardboard. A fine impression of one of Rembrandt's most famous prints, "Abraham's sacrifice", illustrating Genesis 22: 10-12, where Abraham, after god ordered him to sacrifice his only son Isaac, raises his knife to do so but is stayed by an angel who reveals that it was only a test of his obedience to god. In the Bible, the angel merely speaks to Abraham, but Rembrandt made the scene much more intimate, with the angel reaching around Abraham from behind almost in an embrace, holding his left arm (with the knife), just above the elbow and his right arm (holding Isaac's head) near the wrist. The Dutch States Bible of 1637 does place the angel behind Abraham, but still only speaking to him. Rembrandt made the etching in 1655 and no variant states are known. It differs greatly from his 1635 painting of the same subject, where the figures are not so closely united and neither Abraham nor the angel expresses such tenderness. The present example of the etching retains the finest lines very clearly (for example, in the background along the edge of the angel's left wing, between the highest point of the wing and the top of Abraham's head) and shows considerable burr, giving the scene a powerful richness and contrast.The etching has two collectors' stamps on the back: those of Count Johann Nepomuk Ernst Harrach (1756-1829) and Senator Johann Karl Brönner (1738-1812). The etching came into the h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ten complete and very rare etched and engraved architectural-ornamental print series (each with 6 prints), designed and executed by the leading Paris architect and engraver Jean Le Pautre (1618-1682).

(Millard). Working for the Manufacture des Gobelins and on his own account, Le Pautre executed much work for Louis XIV. The work also provides a survey of Paris fashion in interior decoration fairly early in the reign of Louis XIV and helped to determine and establish the richly ornamental style we associate with Louis and his circles. The collection contains the following print series:Ad 1. Retables dautels a l[']italien[n]e ... Paris, Pierre II Mariette, [ca. 1670]. Ad 2. Tabernacles pour orner et embellir les autels nouvellement inventés et gravés ... Paris, Pierre II Mariette, [ca. 1670]. Ad 3. [Autels]. [Pa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vera ac perfecta descriptio, qua ratione ex vini fecibus bonum plurimumque Tartarum sit extrahendum.Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius, 1655. 8vo. Modern half cloth. 28, [4 blank] pp. First edition of the Latin translation of a guide for making wine and spirits from fruits and vegetables, originally published in German a year earlier.Johann Rudolph Glauber (1604-1670) was "the best practical chemist of his day" (DSB). In 1639 Glauber left his native Germany because of the disturbances of the Thirty Years' War and moved to Amsterdam where he "outfitted what was surely the most impressive laboratory in Europe" (DSB).

Rome: Nicolaj Angeli Tinaffi, 1655. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. 4 1/8" X 2 1/2. A tactile antique calf binding with extensive floral/fan gilt design, including some pointillé finish, to both boards and spine completed with gauffered gilt finish to all edges. In lovely firm condition, having previously been professionally restored on the spine and around the edges as seen in photos. Black & red text, illustrated with wood engraving and containing 30 pages manuscript bound at rear. In very good condition with a couple of marks and scuffing to boards, remainders of original clasp/ to upper board, slight fading to gilt edges and a touch of browning and offsetting to pages but overall a beautiful example of 17th century binding. From the Bookbinding and the Conservation of Books - A Dictionary of Descriptive Terminology, pointillé is a luxurious style of finishing consisting of dotted lines and curves impressed on the covers of a book. In the first half of the 17th century, pointillé was used by numerous French bookbinders and/or gilders, including Florimond Badier and Macé Ruette, although in terms of sheer magnificence of execution, it reached its pinnacle earlier in the bindings associated with the name (LE) GASCON.
