Blaeu, Joan / Martini, Martinus
Amsterdam, Joannes Blaeu, 1655. Folio (560 x 364 mm). Engraved architectural title with French letterpress text label, 17 engraved double-page maps colored by a contemporary hand (no text on versos), mounted on guards. Modern calf. First Latin edition of the first European atlas of China. Martini based his highly regarded survey on the Ming revision of the Yü t'u, unlike d'Anville's atlas which used Jesuit surveys. D'Anville notes in his Mémoire: "Martini made use of the maps which the Chinese possessed at the time. They do great honour to that nation and make them superior in this connection to any other Asian people" (p. 25f.; quoted in Lust). The hand-coloured double-page maps consist of a general map of China, 15 maps of the provinces, and a map of Japan. The volume was published as a separate volume by Blaeu in 1655; however, the maps were also included in volume VI of Blaeu?s "Nieuwe Atlas" (1649-58) in Dutch and "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum; sive, Novus Atlas" (1655) in Latin. - Title with small repair at center, patched with bookplate on verso before colouring, first leaf with paper flaw repaired before printing and with a few letters supplied in manuscript facsimile on verso, map of Iunnan with tiny losses to brown pigment repaired on verso, some browning, mostly to text. Provenance: contemporary, unidentified engraved armorial bookplate on verso of title; latterly in the library of Jean R. Perrette (his bookplate on pastedown). - Cordier (Sinica) 182. Koeman Bl 53. Lust 160. Henze III, 384f. & cf. IV, 339. Howgego I, M64 (p. 689).

EICHHOLTZ, Peter
Very fine double-page engraved title. Printed titles within fine typographical borders. 16 p.l., 699, [19] pp., one blank leaf; 16 p.l., 452, [12] pp. Two parts in one vol. Thick 8vo, cont. vellum over boards, yapp edges. Goslar: "Gedruckt bey Nicolas Dunckern, in Verlegung des Autoris und Buchdruckers. Im Jahr 1655.First edition and a very fine copy of a rare book; this is the first time we have handled a copy. WorldCat locates no copy outside of Germany (and very few within Germany).Eichholtz was a minister in the mining town of Zellerfeld, located in the center of the mining activities of the famous Harz Mountains. Mining has been carried on there since the middle of the 10th century, especially for silver, lead, gold, copper, iron, sulphur, alum, and arsenic.This book is very much in the style of the Sarepta (1562) by Mathesius, a close friend of both Agricola and Luther. Indeed, the Sarepta inspired a series of books over the next 150 years which combined religious instruction with discussions of mining and metallurgical technology.The present treatise, delivered in the form of sermons, describes the processes of mining iron, copper, silver, gold, and other metals. Like the Sarepta, it is written in the "bergkleuftigen" manner of the familiar miner's tongue. These sermons related practical mining problems to Biblical stories in order to influence the miners' religious sentiment and pleasure in the church as well as to deepen their professional interest.At the end of Vol. I, there is a valuable dictionary of mining terms.The splendid double-page engraved tit … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'ouvrage a paru après la mort de son auteur, son fils Willum Worm se chargeant de l'édition, qu'il dédie au roi de Danemark Frédéric III.

L'Ecôle des filles.
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). Das einzige für uns nachweisbare titelgleiche Exemplar in der Bibliothek der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in München weicht in der Ko … [Click Below for Full Description]

GASSENDI, Pierre (Petro Gassendo) (1592-1655).
The Hague: Adrian Vlacq, 1655. The Hague:: Adrian Vlacq, 1655., 1655. Sm. 4to. [viii], 300, [16] pp. Engraved frontis. portrait (facing p.1), index. Title printed in red and black. Original vellum. Early two-line ink inscription facing title, "in an old hand", so-to-speak. Minor pencil marginalia throughout. Very good. Third and most complete edition. A tremendously important biography of Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc by the Astronomer and biographer Pierre Gassendi, who Peiresc supported financially from 1634-1637. Peiresc was an accomplished astronomer himself, scientist politician and a brilliant collector, corresponded with Galileo and Tommaso Campanella, both of whom he defended when they were arrested by the inquisition. "Through this book Peiresc and his work came to be known to many who had neither visited his collections and library . . . nor exchanged letters with him" – DSB. An English translation, titled The Mirrour of True Nobility and Gentility: Being the Life of the Renowned Nicolaus Claudius Fabricius, Lord of Pieresk, Senator of the Parliament at Aix, was released in 1657. Gassendi, apart from his significant researches in the field of astronomy, wrote a number of biographies and philosophical texts, and was a frequent opponent of Descartes, with whom he disagreed on the possibility of certain knowledge.

The Oriental types for the Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, and Samaritan characters are prepared by Roycroft. The Ethiopic types were apparently not yet finished, and are printed in woodcut. The Coptic and Armenian types were also printed in woodcut. "This little tract is really well written, and must have been very useful at the time it was published. It does not contain grammars of the different languages mentioned in the title, but only different alphabets, and directions how to read them. At the end of the exposition of the alphabet of each language, is a Specimen, in the proper character . This little work is of considerable importance, as the harbinger of the inestimable Polyglott".

The Presidents of Presidents is a novel guide that proposed a system of conveyances based on a uniform model.

1655. Plate: 'Kuching'. This plate shows a view on the Chinese city of Kuching or Kuchin (Gui Jiang, Kuei Chiang), near the river Gui (Guei). This area is close to Tianjin and Beijing. Also depicted are many ships and a camel. On the foreground some people are fishing. Original and 100% authentic copperplate engravings on a verge type hand laid paper. Description: This attractive original old antique print / plate originates from a German edition of : 'Gezandtschap der Nederlandtsche Oost-Indische Compagnie . aan den grooten Tartarischen Cham, den tegenwoordigen keizer van China.' (Nieuhof's China expedition from 1655-1657.) by J. Nieuhof. This German edition was published in 1666, a year after the first Dutch edition of 1665. The work was famous for its wealth of engravings, while the text was based on earlier (Jesuit) sources as well.Artists and Engravers: Johan / Jan / Johannes Nieuhof / Nieuhoff / Neuhof (1618-1672) was a Dutch traveler who wrote about his journeys to Brazil, China and India. The most famous of these was a trip of 2,400 km from Canton to Peking in 1655-1657, which enabled him to become an authoritative Western writer on China. Johan Nieuhof was born in Uelsen, Germany, of which his father (originally from Zwolle) was mayor. Nieuhof left for Brazil in 1640 as a reserve officer-candidate - from then on, barring two short family visits in 1658 and 1671, he spent all the rest of his life abroad. After an adventurous career in the service of the Dutch East India Company (or VOC) - between 1660 and 1667 he occupied posts in India and on Ceylon - he then lived … [Click Below for Full Description]

A rare miniature map of Asia from a pirate edition of Abraham Ortelius's pocket atlas, published for the italian market by Pietro Marchetti in Venice, around 1655.

Semedo, Alvarez
London: E. Tyler for John Crook, 1655. Folio. 2 engraved portraits, 2 maps, one folding, 1 plate. Contemporary paneled calf. Extremities rubbed, spine chipped at head and foot. A very good copy in an appealing period binding. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Alvarez Semedo (or Semmedo) served as Portuguese Procurado General for China for many years. First published in Latin in 1642, this work is based on the author's observations and is "as yet unaffected by the later racialist or colonialist mythologies" that pervaded the work of later authors (Lust). "Semedo gives more detailed information about the Chinese language than Gonzalez de Mendoza (1585) and Trigault (1615)" (Lowendahl). A splendid Jewish-American association copy from the library of Joseph Solomon Ottolenghe (1711-1775), ink stamp on title, marginalia. Ottolenghe, born Giuseppe Salomone Ottolenghi i Casale Monferratto in Italy in 1711, was invited to England by his uncle. He converted from Judaism to English Protestantism and emigrated to Savannah, Georgia in 1751, first to work as a missionary among the blacks. Later he was appointed as superintendent of the local silk industry and published a treatise on the breeding of silk worms. He served as a member of the Georgia legislature from 1761-1765.

Première édition in-dodecavo sortie des presses de Louis et Daniel Elzevier, publiée l'année de l'originale in-quarto. Carte dépliante hors-texte de la Terre Sainte. « Livre singulier, et autrefois fort recherché, dans lequel l’auteur (qui n’a garde de se nommer, mais qu’on sait être Isaac La Peyrère, 1596-1676) prétend démontrer, par l’autorité de S. Paul, qu’il a existé des hommes avant Adam (...) Le volume fut condamné dès son apparition à être brûlé par la main du bourreau. L'auteur lui-même, quoiqu'attaché à la maison du prince de Condé, n'échappa aux persécutions qu'en allant à Rome se jeter aux pieds du Pape, et abjurer la foi protestante. Le scandale que produisit ce livre est cause sans doute qu'il n'est porté dans aucun catalogue du temps, pas même dans le grand catalogue elzevirien de 1674 » (Willems).

Larges mouillures en début et en fin de volume. Edition originale très rare de ce livre singulier dans lequel l'auteur expose sa théorie du "préadamisme" érigée sur l'interprétation d'un passage d'une lettre de saint Paul aux Romains, suivant laquelle il y avait eu des hommes avant Adam et qu'il y aurait eu en fait deux créations : celle des païens d'abord, puis celle d'Adam, ancêtre des Juifs. Cette théorie pré-évolutioniste fut largement combattue dès la publication de l'ouvrage et plusieurs réfutations furent publiées dès l'année suivante. Le scandale d'une telle hérésie se propagea rapidement et le livre fut condamné au feu par le Parlement de Paris. La Peyrere fut arrêté sur ordre de l'archevêque de Malines en Février 1656 et dut se rétracter et abjurer le protestantisme pour recouvrer la liberté. Il continua malgré tout à persister dans sa foi ainsi que dans sa théorie dont il ne saisissait pas le caractère hérétique. L'influence de cet ouvrage fut considérable car le traité de La Peyrère fut revendiqué d'abord par les polygénistes et les philosophes des Lumières pour qui les ra … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sir Catchick Paul Chater amassed a large collection of historical pictures and engravings relating to China which he gifted to the colony. The Chater Collection was the subject of a work by its curator, James Orange, in 1924, at which time the collection stood at 430 items. Its backbone was the collection of Wyndham Law of the Chinese Maritime Customs Service, and included oil paintings, watercolours, sketches, prints and photographs, most of which are based on landscape scenes of the South China trading ports in the 18th and 19th centuries, and of British activities in China.. The Chater Collection was dispersed and largely destroyed during the Japanese occupation, and only 94 pieces (now an important part of the collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art) are known to have survived (Wikipedia).
