CAMOENS, Luis de.
London: Humphrey Moseley, 1655. London: Humphrey Moseley,, 1655. or Portugals Historicall Poem: written In the Portingall Language; and Now newly put into English by Richard Fanshaw Esq. Folio (304 x 194 mm). Contemporary English mottled calf, red morocco spine label, spine compartments fully gilt, decorative gilt roll to board edges. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Camoens with verses, 2 engraved portraits (of Prince Henry of Portugal, just shaved at fore margin, and of Vasco da Gama by Cross). Neat repair to spine ends, short split to frontispiece at plate mark at lower inner corner, occasional faint waterstain at foot, a few trivial blemishes, but a very good copy, the paper generally clean, strong, and well-margined. First edition in English of Os Lusíadas (1572), the epic poem describing Portugal's rise from obscurity to greatness. Camões 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 1497-8, 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 Luciad "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 accomplished linguist, who spent a good d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sanson, geografo del Re Luigi XIII è considerato il fondatore della cartografia francese, tra i primi ad applicare la trigonometria nelle misurazioni geodetiche; infatti Nicolas Sanson e i suoi collaboratori realizzarono nuove proiezioni geografiche e pubblicarono numerosi atlanti, mentre si affermava l'impiego dei sistemi di misura indiretta mediante i procedimenti trigonometrici applicati in Olanda da Snellius fin dal 1617. Il rilevamento geodetico-topografico basato sulla triangolazione prese rapidamente piede dando alle carte geografiche un aspetto sempre più aderente alla realtà che rappresentavano.Buon esemplare con piccoli fori al margine sinistro.

CASAUBON, MERIC (1599-1671). A Treatise Concerning Enthusiasme, As it is an Effect of Nature: but is mistaken by many for either Divine Inspiration, or Diabolical Possession. London: Printed by R.D. and are to be sold by Tho. Johnson, 1655. First Edition. Meric Casaubon was the son of the great classical scholar Isaac Casaubon. 'A Treatise Concerning Enthusiamse' is probably his most widely read book. A favorite word in English theological circles for some time (cf. Ronald Knox's Enthusiasm), "Enthusiasm" understood in this sense was the hyperactivity of the religious mind connected to some erratic external manifestation. Certain ceremonies and behavior of the Anabaptist, Quakers, Quiestists, Seekers, and Ranters were considered to fall under this definition. In Casaubon's work he attempts to distinguish between natural, physiological factors surrounding religious hyperactivity and preternatural causes, especially that of diabolical obsession or possession. Interesting contemporary ownership annotations on the blanks, title-page and verso of the title-page. One William Marriott has written out the titles of other works by Casaubon in Latin and English on the front blank and verso of the title; a Wm. Griffith, M.A., has written in the upper margin of the title-page that he bought this book in Cambridge in 1693 and notes its cost; and on the rear blank are annotations about Casaubon's classical references, etc. 12mo (16.5 x 11cm), 228pp. A couple pages a bit trimmed close at top with minimal letter loss to chapter heading.

[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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIEUHOF, Johan.
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.

The First non-Spanish description of the Spanish Dominions in the New World. With some facsimile leaves provided but retaining two of its original folding maps. An early account of the exploration of South America and the West Indies. Small folio, bound in recent full polished calf, spine gilt with green morocco lettering piece. The text is lacking one leaf at sig C5 (pp. 21/22) which has not for some reason been provided in facsimile. The following leaves have been provided in facsimile: all five prefatory leaves including title leaf, sig I3-69 (pp. 89-96), the final two index leaves, plus two of the maps: frontispiece and the map of Hispania Nova. The other two maps (The Ylandes of the W. Indies and Terra Firma et Novum Regnum Granatense et Papaian) are present. The first leaf of the main body is present but with archival repair, (there is also a detached facsimile of this leaf present). As a child Gage had been sent by his father to Spain to study with the Jesuits. He joined the Dominican order instead, and in 1625 began his travels as a stowaway, smuggled in a biscuit barrel aboard a ship bound for the Philippines, in violation of the Spanish royal decree excluding foreigners from the new Spanish territories. Gage spent most of the next 12 years in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Panama, living among the Indians and occasionally serving as parish priest or professor of philosophy.

Bloteling, Abraham (1640-1690)
1655. Very good impressions of both etchings, only state. Fine set with wide margins. Around 1655 Jacob van Ruysdael made two romantic paintings and several drawings of the jewish burial ground at Ouderkerk aan den Amstel near Amsterdam. The place was bought in 1614 by the Sefardic jews of Amsterdam, the so-called ‘marranen', who needed a place to bury their deceased in the jewish tradition (a ‘Beth-Chajiem'). The variety and exuberant style of the tombs reflects the different backgrounds of the Sefardic jews in Amsterdam (Portugal, Spain, Italy), in contradiction with sober graveyards of the Dutch jews. The foreign atmosphere inspired Ruisdael and Blooteling to these two beautiful etchings, depicting three large tombs. The middle one – still to be seen at Ouderkerk – is the grave of ‘chacham' Izak Uziel, born in Fez in Marocco, who came to Amsterdam in 1615. He had great influence on the jewish community in the city and was the teacher of a.o. the printer and publisher rabbi Menasseh Ben Israel.

London: Nathaniel Brook at the Angel in Cornhill, 1655. . 12mo, original full early calf; red morocco spine label probably added later. The text has been very closely trimmed resulting in very scant margins on some versos, no lacuna at all.. FIRST EDITION. Wing (2nd ed.), M96 An extremely popular Royalist production published during the lifetime of Oliver Cromwell. Fourteen editions were published before 1700. Throughout the periods of the Protectorate and Restoration, images and texts concerning Henrietta Maria and Elizabeth Cromwell were widely circulated for public consumption. Two such documents, themselves examples of royalist propaganda, took the form of recipe books entitled, Queens Closet Opened and The Court and Kitchin of Elizabeth, commonly called Joan Cromwelll. (in the 17th century Joan was considered a lower-class name and Elizabeth was chided for her pushing herself forward beyond her normal expectations. These books were published within the same decade, within which the Protectorate the Protectorate failed and the Restoration began. Both highlight the failures of Elizabeth, as representative of the protectorate, and praise Henrietta Maria as an emblem of the monarchy, both past and present. Celebrity lifestyle was a source of fascination in the 17th century, and so too was the celebrity exposŽ. Any contemporary reader of The Queens Closet would have understood that the title made satirical reference to the scandalous publication in 1645 of Charles and Henrietta MariaÕs private letters. Published as The KingÕs Ca … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALILEI, GALILEO. - [DISCOVERING THE SUNSPOTS]
Bologna, HH. del Dozza, 1655. 4to. Later marbled boards. Gilt lettering to spine. Fronthinge weakening. Large, partly uncut copy. 7,(1),156 pp. Many textfigs. and textdrawings, including 20 pages depicting the famous sunspot-observations. Internally clan and fine. ¶ Scarce second edition, presumably as a SEPARATE ISSUE of the "Opere", 1655-56. In this work Galilei published for the first time his discovery of the Sunspots, and their explanation as contiguous, and he also here for the first time announced his acceptance of the Copernican system, leading to the Interdict of 1616."Galieo's Letters on Sunspots was published at Rome in 1613 under the auspices of the Lincean Academy. In this book Galileo spoke out decisively for the Copernican system for the first time in print. In the same book he found a place for his first published mention of the concept of conservation of angular momentum and an associated inertial concept. During its composition he had taken pains to determine the theological status of the idea of incorruptibility of the heavens, finding that this was regarded by churchmen as an Aristotelian rather than a Catholic dogma. But attacks against Galileo and his followers soon appeared in ecclesiastical quarters. These came to a head with a denunciation from the pulpit in Florence late in 1614."(DSB).

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).
