1655. Plate: Landscape with 2 hunting men and their dogs (Hollstein 104 II (2). Provenance: with collection marks: JRV (Jan Reinier Voute) and JM (unknown, vague, in circle). Etching on a verge type hand laid paper. Description: 17th c. etchings of Antonie van Waterloo are scarse. It is assumed by experts that Cornelis Danckerts II acquired control of the waterloo plates as early 1655, so well during Waterloo's lifetime. As such most 17th. C. plates are published by Danckerts. The numbering of the plates also points to that. The plates later passed over to the Ottens family earliest 1717.Artists and Engravers: This plate was etched by the reknown Anthonie (Anthony) Waterloo. Although etched he is known to have added accents to his work by burin and other engraving techniques as well. Anthonie Waterloo (1609-1690) is born in Lille, but his family moved to Amsterdam probably to escape religious persecution. He was a painter and etcher and famous for his landscapes (136 items). He developed his own style, probably as an auto-didact. Although Waterloo traveled widely, many of his landscapes were probably imagined in the workshop and were influenced by the work of other landscapists. Condition: Very good. Excellent impression with wide margins. General age related toning. Remains of paper tape on rear from previous storage. Please study scan carfully. Storage location: Q2-264 LA The overall size is ca. 10.6 x 8.1 inch. The image size is ca. 8.1 x 5.2 inch. The overall size is ca. 26.8 x 20.5 cm. The image size is ca. 20.5 x 13.2 cm.

Edition originale. Traité, destiné, dans l'esprit de l'auteur à remplacer celui de Du Fouilloux, que l'auteur trouvait écrit dans un langage trop libre. Doué d'un prodigieux esprit d'observation, il avait appris à connaître les animaux de nos forêts. Il nous a laissé des détails, non seulement sur la manière de les chasser, mais aussi sur leurs habitudes, leurs ruses et leurs instincts. Il contient les chasses du cerf, du lièvre, du chevreuil, du sanglier, du loup et du renard. Avec la manière d'élever les chiens et un traité des remèdes pour leurs maladies.

Deux ans plus tard ce livre fut reproduit à Paris, avec quelques changements, sous le titre 'Les Illustres proverbes historiques'. ... Il en existe aussi une édition de Lyon, Besson, sans date."

Båda trycken av Comeniusverket inleds med en dedikationsvers av Václav Theodor Budovec z Budova, en schlesisk godsägare hos vilken Comenius under en tid bodde. Det andra avtrycker dessutom Karl X Gustavs brev till Polen från den 20 september 1655. Comenius var, som en av ledarna av de Böhmiska bröderna, en av de främsta hyllarna av Karl X Gustav, och såg i dennes uppträdande i Polen ett uppfyllande av profetian om lejonet från Norden. Då det uppenbarligen inte hade varit Gustav II Adolf som var lejonet, så var det förstås Karl X Gustav som var det. Då denne 1655 marscherat in i Leszno (Lissa) hade glädjen hos de Böhmiska bröderna inte vetat några gränser och de hade hjälpt svenskarna på alla tänkbara sätt.

This map was the standart map up to the 18 century. From M. Martini, "Novus Atlas Sinensis", an italian Jesuit, the first european Atlas of China and Japan. Reference: Map Collectors Circle, Nr. 36, 21: "The subdivisions of the Kingdom are shown by means of dotted lines; Korea being correctly drawn as a peninsula for the first time. This was to remain the standart form of Japan until the eighteenth century and although replaced by the maps of Reland and Kaempfer it is in its outline closer to the true shape of Japan than either of these or indeed any printed map before the nineteenth century.

Porter. Engraved plan printed on two sheets joined, trimmed to neatline. The map is probably based upon a copy of the 'Ryther' map, now in the Bodleian Library, which has an extension - in pen and ink - westwards to Pall Mall and Lambeth House. The omission of the Stuart's royal coat-of-arms would suggest that the map was printed at some point in the 1650s. Howgego suggests a date of 1655, as the imprint upon the map is the same as present in Thomas Porter's 'New Book of Maps...' published in 1655. To the upper left is the long title, set within an elaborate title cartouche. In the title, the wish is expressed that the map "is a ready helpe or Guide to direct Countrey-men and Strangers to finde the nearest way from one place to another". To the right are the St George's Cross, the Harp of Ireland, and the Cross of St. Andrew. Further right, the City's arms are flanked by personifications of Justice and Prudence, and a list important "Streets, Places, Hills, Lanes, and Allies (sic) which for want of room could not be written".

Early marginalia on two pages in vol. 2. First edition of the first collected works of the father of modern physics, edited by Carlo Manolessi. These volumes are the fruit of the vast efforts made after Galileo's death to gather and preserve his work. Much of the content was compiled by his friend and student, Vincenzio Viviani, and includes all of Galileo's major writings (except of course the Diologo, which was banned for its heretical comparison of the Copernican and Ptolomaic systems, and did not appear in the Opere until 1744). Viviani had planned to publish the collected works on his own, but was unable to realize his ambition, and the task fell to Manolessi. The second volume contains important selections from Galileo's correspondences, as well as writings on Galileo by others. Some never before published writings include Galileo's letter to Padre Grembergero and his treatise on the hydrostatic balance, more commonly known as "la Bilancetta." The Opere is a testament to the profundity, both scientific and cultural, of Galileo's life and … [Click Below for Full Description]

LUCIEN DE SAMOSATE - PERROT D'ABLANCOURT (Nicolas).
A Paris, chez Augustin Courbé, 1655. 2 vols. in-4. Reliure plein veau brun de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné de caissons à fleurons dorés, titre doré, tranches mouchetées. (coins usés, petite accident à une coiffe sup. avec petit manque, très petites usures à un plat) Bon exemplaire. Seconde édition parue un an après l'originale. Rhéteur et satiriste anatolien de langue grecque, Lucien de Samosate (ca 120-ca 180) est considéré comme l’un des pères de l’esprit critique et de la libre pensée. Il s’attacha dans ses œuvres à démonter en particulier toutes sortes d’impostures magico-religieuses, au nombre desquelles il plaçait le christianisme. Son Histoire véritable, dans laquelle le personnage voyage sur la lune, influença Cyrano de Bergerac lorsqu’il écrivit son Histoire comique des États et Empires de la Lune, ainsi que Voltaire pour Micromégas. Pour d'Ablancourt, une traduction est une oeuvre originale. Il ne craint pas de supprimer, d'ajouter, de modifier. A ce propos, il écrit dans son Epistre : "Comme dans les beaux visages il y a toujours quelque chose qu'on voudroit qui n'y fust pas ; aussi dans les meilleurs Autheurs, il y a des endroits qu'il faut retoucher ou éclaircir, particulierement quand les choses ne sont faites que pour le plaisir (.). Je ne m'attache donc pas toujours aux paroles ni aux pensées de cet Autheur ; et demeurant dans son but, j'agence les choses à nostre air et à nostre façon. Cela n'est pas proprement de la Traduction ; mais cela vaut mieux que la Traduction". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Oxford : Printed by H. Hall printer to the University, for Th. Robinson., 1655. [840] p. ; 8vo. Dedication signed: Robert Wickens. With a preliminary license to print. Signatures: A4 [-A1] B-3G8. Wing W2081 Madan, III, 2287 Thomason, E.1447. Boards rubbed, leather chipped at front joint. Lacks A1 [a blank leaf except for the Imprimatur] Rebacked to style 1) [A2] Title Leaf, 2) [A3r-A4r] Dedication Essay, 3) [A4v] To the Christian Reader, 4) [B1r-3G8v] "A Compleat and Perfect CONCORDANCE of the English Bible, composed after a New and compendious Method". [NOTE: This copy is lacking the first leaf which includes an Imprimatur] Rarely do early printed Bible concordances appear out of original compilation. Usually the author is copying an earlier work and giving no credit to the original author/compiler who, in turn, probably copied their work. Starnes, Robert Estienne's Influence on Lexicography (Univ of Texas, 1963) provides a helpful technique for detecting the original sources of early modern Bible concordances. Sternes investigated entries for selected words observing the exact Biblical quotation chosen. Particularly, he noted the beginning and ending words of the verse citations, which is an editorial choice as rarely are whole verses used in concordances due to space limitations. The technique doesn't help with Wickens so much since he provides only chapter:verse citations, with no phrases. However, it's probably safe to assume that he used the most commonly cited Clement Cotton's 1631 A Complete Concordance of the whole Bible, and its revisions by Samuel Newman publishe … [Click Below for Full Description]
