      Leiden Elzevier 1655 - 6 Blätter (incl. gestochenem Titel), 568 Seiten. Mit fünf durchgezogenen Pergamentstreifen gehefteter Pergamentband der Zeit. (13,7 x 8,5 cm, bzw. 13 x 7,5 cm; Buchblock: 2,2 cm) 12°. - Das letzte Zeugnis der kurzen Zusammenarbeit Jean und Daniel Elzevirs, mit der oft fehlenden Widmung und von interessanter Provenienz - Vergl. Bérard S. 72 f ("Cette édition [1637 ! CS] est la première et la plus recherchée de celles imprimées par les Elzévirs. Elle contient 717 pages, compris même le frontispice. Les éditions suivantes sont moins estimées. Elles ont paru, en 1655, à Leyde, et, en 1658 à Amsterdam."). Pieters 36 auf S. 168 ("Voyez ci-devant, à l'année 1637, et il y a encore deux éditions d'Amst. ex offic. Elsev. sous la date de 1658 et de 1664."). Willems 758 ("4 ff. limin., y compr. le titre gravé. - 568 pp. Troisième édition elzevirienne (voir à l'année 1637, le n° 452). Certains exemplaires contiennent, à la suite du titre, une épitre dédicatoire à D. Daubray, en deux feuillets, laquelle n'est pas réclamée par les signatures et semble avoir été ajoutée après coup. Cette épitre, signée J. et D. Elzevier, est datée du 14 [recte XV. ! CS] janvier 1655. L'association des deux imprimeurs ayant été dissoute trois mois plus tard, il est à présumer que cette pièce ne se trouve que dans les exemplaires mis en vente avant le départ de Daniel."). Brunet (Millot) S. 65 ("Jean et Daniel ont donné une édition nouvelle en 1655, aussi petit in-12,de 6 ff. lim. avec le titre, et de 568 p. La Conspiratio est en très-petit caractère. Cette édition, qui est peut-être la dernière de l'association de Jean et Daniel, offre cette singularité, comparée au Patissier de Louis et Daniel de 1655, que Daniel imprime en la même année à Leyde et à Amsterdam: la dissolution avec l'un, l'association avec l'autre, se placent ainsi en l'année 1655. Tout ce qui est imprimée par Jean et Daniel durant leur courte association mérite d'être receuilli par les amateurs; tout est généralement d'une riche typographie."). Vergl.

        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.

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.

        Monasticon Anglicanum

      Richard Hodgkinsonne 1655, 1661, & 1673, London - 3 volumes, folio, contemporary leather, modern rebacking in leather, new endsheets, illustrated with engraved pre title, some text illustrations and 108 plates many folding, [40], 1151; 3, [14], 2, 1057; [6], 378, 218, [379-392 first index in volume 3] pp. Leather scuffed in places, one plate missing top half, a second possibly missing bottom portion of plate, but image appears complete, another plate upside down, some soiling, foxing and normal aging, a few pages with tears, but not affecting text; overall nice set of a very rare first edition. William Dugdale (1605-1681) was born at the Shustoke rectory to an old Lancashire family, and was educated at the King Henry VIII School in Coventry. As a young man, he showed an inclination for antiquarian studies, and through a relationship with Sir Christopher Hatton was commissioned to make exact drafts of all the churches in England in 1641. After a visit to France in 1648 he continued his antiquarian studies in London, and collaborated with Richard Dodsworth on his Monasticon Anglicanum, which was published in 1655, 1661, and 1673. It has been reported that Dugdale himself sold copies to booksellers who passed them along to a small, but appreciative audience. The work provided a history of the various orders in England, and an account of the individual monasteries. While other major editions of this work were published in 1693, 1718 and 1846, because each volume was published separately, it is very difficult to find a complete set of the first edition. It is difficult to determine the right number of plates for this edition, but it appears this set has 108. The 1718 edition seems to have a larger number of plates. Dugdale's other major works include Antiquaries of Warwichshire (1656) and History of St. Paul's Cathedral (1658). The set includes a letter dated November 30, 1956 from a bookseller acknowledging the sale of the set to a buyer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Terra machinis mota ejusque gravitas et dimensio, dissertationes duae P. Pauli Casati,... Soc. Jesu, quas in Collegio romano ejusdem societatis publice exposuit et... cardinali Friderico Hassiae lantgravio... d. d. d. Antonius, comes de Montfort.

      Rome: Typis haeredum Corbeletti, 1655. Very rare first edition of this work on the theory of machines and the nature of gravity by the young Jesuit Paolo Casati. A thesis presented viva voce at the Collegio Romano, the work imaginatively envisions a Latin dialogue, in two parts, between three great physicists of the preceding generation, all recently dead in the 1640s: Galileo; Marin Mersenne, his greatest champion outside of Italy, and Paul Guldin, the leading Jesuit physicist at the Collegio Romano during the same period. The first part is devoted to the comparison between the forces produced by various machines, involving cog wheels, ropes and pulleys. The second is devoted to gravity and the problem of lifting the earth using the machines described in the first part. That a work sympathetic to Galileo, the arch rival of the Jesuits, should be printed in Rome, the intellectual capital of the Order, suggests that the power of Galileo's condemnation was already waning, and that in areas other than astronomy, public adherence to Galileian views was becoming increasingly acceptable. This work appeared in the same year as the first collected edition of Galileo's Opera (Bologna, Dozza, 1656-55). The contemporary impact of the work is not known, but according to Thorndike (VIII.179), Casati was read by Robert Boyle. A second edition, adding three further dialogues, was published in 1658. Casati (1617-1707) is an interesting and understudied figure in Jesuit intellectual life in the generation after Galileo. He is best known as the principal "handler" of Queen Cristina's highly politicized conversion to Catholicism, leaving no doubt about his orthodoxy. He also wrote a work on a Galileian-style proportional compass and is credited by Baldini as a champion of Galileian mechanics, on which he lectured in Rome; see "L'attività scientifica nel primo Settecento," Storia d'Italia. Einaudi Annali 3 (Turin 1980) 469 ff.). Macclesfield 483 (1658 edition); Riccardi I.270; Not in Roberts & Trent.Small folio, contemporary limp vellum (some tear to the outer margins of the boards, with no damage to the leaves), some light water staining, but in all a very good and genuine copy with no repairs, pp. [6], 52.

        The History of that Great and Renowned Monarchy of China...

      London: E. Tyler for John Crook, 1655. Quarto, with two portrait frontispieces, engraved costume plate and folding map, and an engraved map in the text; small paper flaw affecting one leaf yet an excellent copy with the single contents leaf (not noted in the collation by Lust) and advertisement leaf bound in; contemporary speckled calf, spine ornamented in gilt. First English edition of Semedo's very important study of China (first published as Relatione della grande monarchia della Cina in 1643) with the section describing the Manchu conquest of China based on Martini's De bello Tartarico historia of 1654.'Alvarez Semedo (1586-1658) was the Portuguese Procurador General for China. He first arrived in China in 1613. Unlike other Jesuits, he remained in the south of China except for a visit to Xi'an in 1625, where he was the first European to examine the newly discovered Nestorian Tablet which had remained buried for centuries. In 1640 he wrote a detailed report in Italian to publicize the Jesuit mission in China. It is from this rare book that can be obtained very important information about Semedo's fascinating account on other important religions: the Muslim and Jewish communities in Ming dynasty in China. Semedo was the first European to describe in Europe the preparation and benefits of tea as a beverage. He wrote his original manuscript in Goa in 1638. It was first published in Spanish in 1642 by Manuel de Faria y Sousa. Martino Martini (1614-1661), an Italian Jesuit, also spent many years in China. His History was the first detailed information and the best-known description of the Manchu conquest available to Europeans during the seventeenth century. Martini's History was translated from Latin by Gilbert Girault and was first published separately in 1654.''This work contains a general description of Chinese society (Part I) and deals with the foreign missions (part II) and with the Manchu campaigns (part III). 'The French translation of both texts is the work of Louis Coulon'. (Bibliotheca Wittockiana, Western Travellers in China, 2009). Joints worn but firm, small loss to head of spine.

        Novus Atlas Sinensis.

      Amsterdam: Joannes Blaeu, 1655. Large folio, with a hand-coloured title-page highlighted in gold, 17 engraved double-page maps in contemporary hand-colouring; original Dutch vellum, ornately gilt; hand-coloured engraved portrait of Johannes Bracherius mounted on front pastedown perhaps indicating early ownership. The Italian Jesuit missionary Martino Martini's superb mapping of China, produced by the great Amsterdam cartographic publisher Joan Blaeu, who later incorporated it as a volume in the huge Blaeu publication of maps of the world, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The magnificent title-page, with Hercules opening a massive door to reveal a Chinese landscape with angels unrolling a scroll to reveal the geography of China and another group marking it on the globe, is followed by a general map and maps of each of the fifteen provinces into which Ming China was divided. Unlike most other Blaeu maps, those here do not have any text on their reverse sides.With its text in Latin, this was the first edition of the greatest early atlas of the Chinese empire and 'extremely valuable in presenting Europe with an accurate geographic picture of the Middle Kingdom. Based as [the maps] were on Chinese maps, they rectified much of the erroneous information concerning China's interior geography... The first of the seventeen maps is a map of the entire Chinese empire, followed by a general description of China and its inhabitants. Individual maps of Ming China's fifteen provinces follow, each accompanied by detailed descriptions. Finally there is a map and brief description of Japan. Martini apparently based his maps and description to a large extent on the "Mongol Atlas" compiled by Zhu Siben about 1311-12 and later revised by Luo Hongxian (1504-64). Although Martini had travelled widely in China and had apparently surveyed parts of it, the maps in his Novus Atlas Sinensis were almost entirely derived from the revised "Mongol Atlas". Even so, these were the most accurate maps available during the century, and together with Martini's provincial descriptions, the atlas provided more geographical information about China than became available during the following two centuries... ' (Lowendahl).Reed and Demattè have noted (China on Paper, Getty Research Institute, 2007, catalogue number 25) that 'Martino Martini's Novus Atlas Sinensis was the first atlas and geography of China to be published in Europe. The seventeen maps are noteworthy for their accuracy, remarkable for the time, but also for their highly decorative cartouches featuring vignettes depicting regional dress, activities and animals. Along with the maps, the volume contains 171 pages of Latin text by Martini comprising a preface on the Far East and descriptions of each province in China as well as the Liaodong and Korean peninsulas and Japan... [It] marked the beginning of a flood of illustrated works and translations on China in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, many of which cite Martini's atlas as a source. In addition, it is one of the first true Sino-European publications, based on Chinese land surveys, but presenting geographic data in a highly visual European cartographic format... '.This is an example of the second printing of the first edition, slightly revised, with the privilege dated 1655; editions in Spanish, Dutch, French and German based on this original Latin version appeared in the next few years. The endpapers have been renewed, some slight browning to maps as usual (chiefly to their blank versos).

        Opere di Galileo Galilei linceo nobile fiorentino, Già Lettore delle Matematiche nelle Università di Pisa, e di Padova, di poi Sopraordinario nello Studio di Pisa. Primario Filosofo e matematico del serenissimo Gran Duca di Toscana. In questa nuoua editione insieme raccolte, e di varij Trattati dell'istesso Autore non più stampati accresciute. Al Serenissimo Ferdinando II Gran Duca di Toscana.

      Bologna: Heredi del Dozza, 1655-56. First edition of his collected works. First collected edition of the works of Galileo, edited by Carlo Manolessi, and appearing only a year after his death. This was the edition in which Newton and his later contemporaries read their Galileo. The volumes contain not only most of the major works written and published over his lifetime, but also substantial unpublished material, both by Galileo himself as well as by his supporters and critics. Many of these items were provided to the editor by Vincenzo Viviani, Galileo's friend and disciple, including a number of Galileo's hitherto unpublished letters and experiments and La Bilancetta, his first scientific work, written in 1586. The Dialogo was of course on the Index and was not included in editions of the Opere until 1744. A feature of this edition is that each work has its own separate title page, imprint and pagination, which has resulted in several copies being broken up, the individual tracts being sold individually. Carlo & Favaro 251; Cinti 132; Riccardi I 518-9. 2 vols., 4to (228 x 167 mm), contemporary flexible vellum, fully complete I: pp. [28], 48, 48, [8], 160, [4], 68, 127, [4], 264, 43, including allegorical frontispiece signed Stefano della Bella, engraved portrait of Galileo by Villamoena, and with large folding plate of proportional compass; II: pp. [2], 60, [16], 104, [4], 105-156, 48, [8], 179, [1], [2], 53-106, [2], 103-126, [8], 238 (i.e. 242), [6]. Numerous woodcut diagrams in text (collates as in Cinti, Bibliotheca Galileiana). Some scattered browning to various quires (as usual), light damp stain in the beginning of volume 2, but in general a very good and unsophistaced copy.

        KOREA & JAPAN: IAPONIA REGNUM.

      Amsterdam [] 1655 - Copper engraving with recent colour in outline (profesionally restored, repaired small tear in the blank space above Japan, otherwise in a good condition) 59 x 52 cm (23.2 x 20.5 inches). A decorative map of Japan and the first map to show Korea correctly as a peninsula. A decorative map of Japan and Korea from Joan Blaeu's Atlas Sinensis, and the first map map to show Korea correctly as a peninsula. This atlas was based on a work by an Italian Jesuist Martino Martini, who lived in China, but never visited Japan, He made a report of the country from information supplied to him. The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century - Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon WillemÕs return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which led the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. The VOC would be one of BlaeuÕs anchor clients and in 1633 he was appointed the CompanyÕs official hydrographer.SEE OUR WEB-SITE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

      Madrid, Diego Díaz, de la Carrera 1655 - Fol. (30,4 x 21,2 cm). 2 vols. Pergamino de época. Grabados xilográficos en texto, escudos en madera de cada uno de los obispados de los que se hace referencia y un gran mapa calcográfico plegado grabado por Juan de Noort. Primera edición de este texto clásico para la historia de los primeros siglos de dominación española en el Nuevo Mundo. El tomo I se refiere en su totalidad a México y el II al virreinato de Lima. “Gil González Dávila fue Cronista Real desde 1617; designado cronista mayor de Indias por Felipe IV (1643), precisamente con el fin de realizar un gran “teatro” (panorama) de la Iglesia de América, exaltando la labor y la fe de los españoles y de su soberano. Se relacionó con otros intelectuales, como Uztarroz, cronista a su vez de Aragón, y León Pinelo, polígrafo y funcionario del Consejo de Indias. Menciona seis arzobispados, 33 obispados, 275 ciudades fundadas en América y 4796 “ministros” que constituyen la médula del Estado de ultramar. Incorpora también documentos de todo tipo, como cédulas reales, cartas y los blasones otorgados a las ciudades, así como un mapa magnífico de Michoacán, fechado en 1648. Va avanzando de diócesis en diócesis, según un plan bastante riguroso: una breve descripción geográfica e histórica de conjunto, luego la sucesión biográfica de los obispos, que constituye la parte más detallada y por último una lista de hombres destacados que residieron en la región.” [Thomas Calvo, Historia Mexicana, vol. LVIII, num. 2, p. 909-914] “Ya que, en efecto, el Teatro Eclesiástico consiste fundamentalmente en la serie de biografías, cronológicamente ordenadas, de los arzobispos y obispos de México, Puebla de los Ángeles, Michoacán, Santiago de Guatemala, Guadalajara, Chiapas, Yucatán, Oaxaca, Nicaragua, Durango, Santo Domingo, Santiago de Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela y Honduras, es decir, la totalidad del virreinato novohispano, desde los orígenes hasta mediado el siglo XVII. “Para subrayar el interés de la obra basta detener la atención en los datos que, desde su posición de cronista mayor de Indias, pudo aportar Dávila sobre personajes como Bartolomé de las Casas, Juan de Zumárraga, Pedro Moya de Contreras, Julián Garcés, Vasco de Quiroga, Sebastián Ramírez de Fuenleal, Alonso Manso, Rodrigo de Bastidas; figuras todas ellas de clara notoriedad en la historia indiana, que ocuparon en momentos decisivos algunos de los puestos más influyentes en la América española, afectando con su conducta y su actividad tanto a la historia religiosa como a la civil, tanto a la cultural como a la política.” [Alberto de la Hera, Revista Complutense de Historia de América 2005, vol. 31 265-296] Magnífico ejemplar, limpio y en muy buen estado. Con su encuadernación original en pergamino de época, con diferencias en el lomo un tomo respecto del otro. Palau, 105289: “Obra interesante y buscada”; Salvá, 3329: “Es obra curiosa e interesante, porque además de las noticias eclesiásticas que contiene, precede a cada arzobispado u obispado una reseña de su conquista, producciones, cosas notables y el escudo de armas grabado en madera”.
