        Album Dianae Leporicidae sive venationis leporinae leges. Ad Illustrisimum Pompnium de Believre, Supremi Galliarum Senatus Principem.

      Cadomi (Caen), Claudii Le Blanc 1655 - In-12 en parchemin. 13 ff ( titre, dédicace, et index), 105 pp. Edition originale fort rare, car cet ouvrage n'eu qu'une seule édition. Bon état de la reliure, Auréole d'une mouillure présente sur tout l'ouvrage, les derniers cahiers sont un peu lâche. Par distraction de bel esprit, Jacques Savary, de Caen (1606-1669), composa ce poème sur la chasse du lièvre d'après les préceptes de Du Fouilloux. Encouragé par le succés, Savary mit plus tard en vers Latin les règles de la chasse du renard et du blaireau (1658), du cerf, du chevreuil, du sanglier, et du loup. (cf Thiébaud) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      Bologna: HH. del Dozza, 1655. Hardcover. Near Fine. Large 4to.. 2 volumes. I: (14) ff., 48, 48 pp., (4) ff., 160 pp., (2) ff., 68, 127 pp., (2) ff., 264, 43 pp., including allegorical frontispiece signed Stefano della Bella, Villamoena portrait of Galileo, and folding engraved plate of military compass. II: (1) f., 60 pp., (8) ff., 104 pp., (2) ff., 105-156, 48 pp., (4) ff., 179, (1) pp., (1) ff., 53-106 pp., (1) f., 103-126 pp., (4) ff., 238 [i.e., 242] pp., (3) ff. Woodcut initials and diagrams. Bound in contemporary vellum, title written in ink on spine and on lower edges; usual mild discoloration and light foxing on scattered leaves; several quires browned as usual. Generally a fine, wide-margined and fresh copy. First collected edition of Galileo's works, appearing only a year after his death and of great interest for his 17th-century reception: this was the edition in which Newton and later eminent scientists read their Galileo. Included here are not only most of the seminal pieces written and published over a lifetime, including the Starry Messenger of 1610, the first work of modern observational astronomy, but additional publications and letters by both supporters and antagonists. Together in one work they offer a veritable panorama of scientific activity in Italy during the first half of the seventeenth century, and are critical for the history of the formation of Galileo's text. The Opera contains many unpublished or little-known items provided to the editors by Vincenzo Viviani, Galileo's friend and disciple. Among them are a number of Galileo's hitherto unpublished letters and experiments and the La Bilancetta, his first scientific work, written in 1586. Both the Dialogo and the letter to Christina di Lorena were censored and are, therefore, omitted. A contemporary hand noted on the final flyleaf of Vol. 2, "La lettura de discorsi legati insieme è interdetta" ("The reading of the discourses bound together is forbidden."). * Cinti 132; Riccardi I.518-19.

        Het gezantschap der Neêrlandtsche Oost-Indische Compagnie, aan den grooten Tartarischen Cham, den tegenwoordigen keizer van China:...Amsterdam, Jacob van Meurs, 1670. Folio. With engraved title-page, engraved author's portrait, large folding engraved map of China, 34 double-page engraved plates and views, and 110 half-page engraved illustrations in text, all in fine and strong impressions. The coats of arms of Spiegel and Witsen, apparently optional elements in the preliminaries of the Dutch, French and Latin editions, are not present. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum.

      Howgego G-85, N-25; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 539; Löwendahl 147; Tiele, Bibl. 800. 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.

His nephew Caspar Commelin (1668-1731) took charge of the garden's exotic plants in 1696, while Frederik Ruysch took charge of the domestic plants. Jan Commelin prepared most of the present volume 1, with special emphasis on plants of the East and West Indies, his "most important contribution to botanical knowledge" (Hunt), posthumously published by Caspar, who also prepared most of volume 2, with special emphasis on South African plants. Frederik Ruysch and Frans Kiggelaar provided editorial help and contributed additional notes.Each volume with an inscription noting the bequest of Mary Watson-Wentworth (née Bright), Marchioness of Rockingham (1735-1804) to Charles William Wentworth, Viscount Milton (1786-1857), later 5th Earl Fitzwilliam and the 1920 armorial bookplate of William Charles de Meuron Wentworth, 7th Earl Fitzwilliam (1872-1943). Loosely inserted is a 1789 letter from Robert Hamilton to the same marchioness. With an occasional very small spot or rust hole, but still in very good condition. With cracks repaired in the spine and hinges and minor stains and scratches but the binding is otherwise good. famous botanical work. A magnificent medical-botanical work.

      Turrino, 1655. Volume in 4° antico legato in pergamena, titolo calligrafato al dorso, sguardie, frontespizio con ampia marca tipografica, 10 carte, 906 pp., errori nell"indicazione della segnatura; manca l'antiporta allegorica incisa in rame, con personaggi, animali, simboli di varie città. Ad opera del monaco somasco bresciano Ricci, questo dettagliatissimo resoconto delle guerre del tempo, preceduto da interessante "Index latina antiqua nomina suis quibusque locis", dove apprendiamo che le Langhe sono "Clitellae", e distinguiamo tra "Nicia", Nizza della Paglia, e "Nicaea", Nizza Marittima; trattazione che privilegia particolarmente il territorio piemontese tra Langhe, Monferrato, Cuneese; la guerra del Monferrato; la guerra di Carnia e del Friuli; le guerre liguri; i tre assedi di Casale; le guerre tra Torino e vari altri stati, italiani ed esteri, le guerre civili tra madamisti e principisti; e lotte in Cremona, Tortona, negli stati pontifici, le insurrezioni di Palermo... Innumerevoli riferimenti a minuscole località del Cuneese quali Cherasco, Carrù, Garessio, Bagnasco; citazione in più passi di Mondovì e delle sue vicende belliche. Superba descrizione, che occupa due pagine di testo, della città di Cuneo, in quanto piazzaforte militare e strategica della massima importanza, ma anche sotto il profilo paesaggistico, splendido l'incipit: "Cuneum duo cadentia ex Alpibus flumina in arctum...", segue la descrizione di "Ghezium" e "Sturiae". Fatta salva la mancanza dell'antiporta e due piccoli strappi in due carte, in più che bello stato, di scarsissima reperibilità

        Abbildung der Bludigen See Treffens zwischen den Holländern und Engelländern, so drey tage gewehret, Geschehen im Augusto Anno 1653

      Frankfurt: Mattheus Merian. unbound. View. Uncolored copper engraving. Image measures 11.5 x 14.5" This incredible circa 1655 view depicts a scene from the important naval battle during the first Anglo-Dutch War. The Battle of Ter Heijde or the Battle of Scheveningen was fought in July 31 1653 (10 August according to the Gregorian calendar) off the Dutch coast between the Commonwealth of England and the United Provinces. This final battle resulted in both sides claiming a victory and eventually led to the 1654 Treaty of Westminster. The scene depicts the Dutch fleet under Maarten Tromp engrossed in heavy battle with the English fleet under George Monck. Although Tromp was killed early in the battle, his death was kept secret to keep up the morale of the Dutch. A legend along the bottom lists the commanders and ships marked on the view. Issued in Merian's "Theatrum Europaeum". The print is in good condition with minor wear and verso repairs along the original folds and edges. Original plate mark is visible. Minor foxing. The Swiss-born Matthäus Merian (1593-1650) studied in Zurich and Paris before moving to Frankfurt, where he worked as an engraver, etcher and publisher. He lived in Basel, the city he was born in, for brief periods during his lifetime. This is a beautiful example of his work.

        Americae Sive Novi Orbis Nova Descriptio

      Venice: Giovanni Turrini, 1655. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 3 x 4.25". This miniature map of the western hemisphere belongs to a period of great cartographic interest in the early-to-mid 17th century. Conscious of the great popularity of Abraham Ortelius's miniature atlas, which the famous cartographer first published in 1577, Giovanni Turrini produced a now-rare Italian version of the atlas, "Il Teatro del Mondo," in which this map was included. Although Ortelius had since published revised editions of his famous world map from 1570, correcting the large bulge in South America among other errors, Turrini chose to use the original for publication in his Italian atlas. The result is a map that demonstrates the rapid pace at which discoveries were being made in the late 16th century. The map is in good condition. Narrow bottom margin with chip along the bottom edge of the map affecting caption. Italian text on verso. Giovanni Turrini was an Italian publisher based in Venice. Scarce.

        LES DEUX POLES.

      Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette., 1655. ARCTIQUE ou SEPTENTRIONAL, et ANTARCTICQUE, ou MERIDIONAL, ou Description des Terres Arcticques et Antarctiques; et des Pays circomvoisins jusques aux 45 Degres de Latitude. Copper engraving. Original colour. Very good condition; some browning to the centrefold and a stain to the upper left, not affecting the image. Size: 54 x 39 cm. (21½ x 15½ inches) An attractive double hemisphere map based on the polar projections so as to include the northern and southern thirds of the world. The North pole is connected to Greenland and Spitzbergen but there is little other detailed coastline in the polar area. Europe, Russia and Canada are delineated. The South pole is based on the great unknown Southland of Magellan. The tip of S. America is shown, and a large land mass which encompasses the whole of the hemisphere, but nothing else, showing the limited extent of knowledge of these extreme latitudes. Extraordinarily enough, though, the southern projection, which shows little more than the outline of a vast landmass 'Australe et Incogneue', roughly corresponding to Antarctica as we know it today, long before any of it was discovered. Maps by Sanson in original colour are rare. Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) French cartographer who established the first great cartographic dynasty in France. He was tutor to Louis XIV. Sanson published over 300 maps and was a founder of the French school of mapmakers, at a time when the leadership in European cartography passed from the Low Countries to France.

        La Natività con Angeli

      1655. Acquaforte, 1655 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Esemplare nel sesto stato di otto. Bellissima prova, impresa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "tre lune", inusuali ampi margini, lieve piega di carta, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A differenza della maggior parte delle incisioni di Biscaino, piccole in scala e con poche figure in scena, La Natività è una delle lastre più grandi e più ambiziose dell'artista, da cui emergono un senso di superficie strutturata e la caratteristica luminosità dei dipinti genovesi dell'epoca. È più complessa e meglio riuscita di molte delle opere di Biscaino, principalmente perché l'artista lavorò duramente per emulare l'opera di Castiglione, indubbiamente più creativo ed esperto. La composizione si basa sulla pala realizzata da Castiglione per la chiesa di San Luca a Genova (1645), con i suoi splendidi angeli sospesi in aria, uno dei quali ha in mano un elegante incensiere. È possibile che Biscaino conoscesse anche un'incisione di Castiglione, insolitamente grande e rimasta incompiuta, dello stesso soggetto, datata agli inizi degli anni Cinquanta del 1600. I lunghi tratti paralleli e ricurvi, usati per definire e modellare i drappeggi, rivelano il debito di Biscaino verso il disegno acquerello di Castiglione, ma sono anche indice della conoscenza dell'opera grafica di Parmigianino, un artista che imparò ad apprezzare grazie al suo maestro, Valerio Castello. I ritmi sobri e la grazia languida di Biscaino differiscono notevolmente dalle qualità dinamiche delle composizioni di Castiglione; inoltre, a differenza di questi, Bartolomeo non utilizzava le linee a mo' di scarabocchio per conferire tono e vitalità ai disegni. Questa incisione, insolitamente ricca per essere una delle prime opere, è stata quasi sicuramente stampata dallo stesso Biscaino, che lasciò una grande quantità di inchiostro sulla superficie della lastra per creare il tono ed enfatizzare l'aura di mistero e dramma della scena. Questa pratica suggerisce che Biscaino possa aver conosciuto i monotipi del suo modello, Castiglione, da cui mutuò anche l'abitudine di firmare le proprie lastre con nome e nazionalità. Questa lastra è stata poi pubblicata da Daman, il cui nome appare in quasi tutte le incisioni realizzate da Biscaino. Nato a Genova dal grande pittore Giovanni Andrea Biscaino, i primi anni di formazione Bartolommeo li visse a fianco del padre per poi passare al laboratorio dell'ancora più illustre Valerio Castello. Sono solo due i dipinti che possiamo attribuire a Biscaino, ma ne esistono molti altri, di carattere religioso e mitologico e che oggi sono parte di collezioni genovesi, che posso essere attribuite all'artista sulla base di comparazioni stilistiche con le sue molte incisioni. Ci sono inoltre numerosi disegni che possono essere imputati all'artista con un certo grado di sicurezza. I suoi soggetti principali delle opere sono scene narrative del Vecchio Testamento, come il Trionfo di David o il Ritrovamento di Mosè, e immagini devozionali, quali la Natività. Mentre le figure e le composizioni che troviamo nelle sue prime opere pittoriche sono molto vicine a quelle di Castello, le opere della maturità di Biscaino rivelano la sua ammirazione per Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, con il quale non ebbe probabilmente contatti personali, ma le cui opere realizzate a Genova devono aver influenzato profondamente il giovane artista. Non solo Biscaino iniziò a dipingere alla maniera di Castiglione, ma realizzò anche dei disegni acquerello che riproducevano in maniera fedele queste opere caratteristiche di Castiglione.Valerio Castello realizzò almeno una incisione, ma è più probabile che la passione di Biscaino per l'arte dell'incisione derivi dalla più significativa produzione di Castiglione. Diversamente da questi, le cui opere, al pari di Rembrandt, hanno sviluppato un vocabolario grafico indipendente, Biscaino realizzava incisioni che riproducevano fedelmente i propri disegni; era infatti solito realizzare disegni preparatori per le sue stampe che poi seguiva pedissequamente, a volte anche progettando il disegno per trasferirlo direttamente sulla lastra. La breve carriera di Biscaino venne interrotta nel 1657, quando morì a soli venticinque anni a causa di un'epidemia di peste a Genova. La sua fama come pittore rimase piuttosto circoscritta, ma la sua prolifica produzione di incisioni lo rese famoso ben oltre i confini della sua città natale. Etching, 1655 circa, signed at lower left. A fine impression of the sixt state of eight, printed on contemporary paper with " tre lune" watermark, unusual wide margins, in very good condition. Unlike the majority of Biscaino's engravings, small in scale and with few figures in the scene, The Nativity is one of the largest and more ambitious works of the artist, from which appear a sense of structured surface and the characteristic luminosity of the Genoese paintings of the time. It is more complex and certainly better achieved than many other prints of Biscaino, mainly because the artist worked very hard to copy the work of Castiglione, without any doubt a more creative and skilful artist. This composition is based on the altarpiece of Castiglione for the church of St. Luca in Genoa (1645), with its beautiful flying angels, one of which holds an elegant censer. Very likely, Biscaino knew also an engraving of Castiglione, uncommonly big and unfinished, depicting the same subject and realized in the early 1650s. The long, curving parallel strokes, used to model end define the draperies, reveal the influence of Castiglione's brush drawing on Biscaino, but they also reveal his knowledge of the graphic art of Parmigianino whom he came to know through his master, Valerio Castello. Biscaino's sober rhythms and his faint grace show a different dynamic quality when compared to Castiglione's; moreover, Biscaino did not even use Castiglione's scribbly lines to confer tone and vitality to his drawings. This impression, uncommonly rich for an early work, has been almost certainly printed by the artist, who left a huge amount of ink on the plate surface to confer tone and emphasize the mystery aura and the drama of the scene. This practice suggests that the artist might have studied the monotypes of Castiglione, who was his model and whose habit of signing the plates with name and nationality he imitated. The plate was later published by Daman, whose name can be found in almost all the engravings Biscaino produced. Son of Giovanni Andrea Biscaino, Bartolommeo was born in Genoa, and he spent his first years of artistic training with his father to move afterwards to the workshop of the famous Valerio Castello. There are only two paintings that can be ascribed to Biscaino, but there are many others with religious and mythological subjects that could have been realized by the artist if we compare their style to the one of his compositions. They are all part of private Genoese collections now. Also many drawings can be attributed to Biscaino with a certain level of security. His favourite subjects were the narrative scenes of the Old Testament, such as the Triumph of David and the Finding of Moses, and devotional images like the Nativity. While the figures and the compositions of Biscaino's early painted works are very close to those of Castello, the works he realized in his artistic maturity reveal his admiration for Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, whom he probably never met but whose works must have had a great influence on the young artist. Not only Biscaino started painting like Castiglione, he also realized some brush drawings faithfully copying those distinctive works of Castiglione. Valerio Castello realized at least one engraving, but Biscaino derived more likely his passion for this art from Castiglione's most significant production. Unlike these masters, whose prints (like Rembrandt) have their own peculiar graphic vocabulary, Biscaino realized etchings that faithfully reproduced his own drawings; he usually made the preparatory drawings for his prints that he afterwards followed very closely, sometimes tracing it directly on plate. His brief career was interrupted by his death in 1657, when he died at the age of twenty - five for the plague in Genoa. Biscaino's reputation as a painter remained quite circumscribed, but his graphic production made him extremely famous even outside the birders of his native city.

        Schism dis-arm'd of the defensive weapons, lent it by Doctor Hammond and the bishop of Derry.

      M. Blageart, 1655. John Sergeant (1622-1707) converted to Catholicism from the Church of England after researching the history of the early Church. He was ordained to the priesthood and undertook a career as a controversialist against Protestantism, writing many works. This one is a Catholic answer to Henry Hammond's (1605-60) Of Schisme, and John Bramhall's (1594-1663) A Just Vindication of the Church of England from the Unjust Aspersion of Criminal Schism. Hammond and Bramhall were leading Anglican divines of the high-church party, and in attacking them Sergeant reveals the influence that that party still commanded, even at its lowest ebb under Cromwell. His argument is largely a defense of the Papacy against those who would assert the historical independence of the Church of England. => This is the sole edition of this important Recusant work. It is also a volume that shows such controversy was definitely not "dry"; for its presentation at our website, we photographed the start of Sergeant's explanation/defense of his personal animus against his antagonist, and also the "Stationer's" description of the polemical feast to come, this worked out as a menu or "Bill of Fare"! Provenance: On the recto of the second front fly-leaf is a presentation inscription: "For my honnord & best frind, Master John Bulteel." The most likely John Bulteel is the one who was created M.A. at Oxford in 1661, and later served as secretary to Edward, Earl of Clarendon.
