      Amsterdam, Joannes van Ravesteyn 1656. "(16) 458 (5) p. Origineel overslaand Perkament, 12° (Daniël Mostaert, 1591-1646, was secretaris van Amsterdam, en vriend van Vondel, die hem zijn dichtstuk 'De Roomsche Lier' heeft toegewijd. Hij was ook bevriend met Reael, Barlaeus en andere beroemde tijdgenoten zoals Hooft, van wie hij enkele werken heeft nagekeken. ''Zijn 'Vermeerde Nederduytsche Secretaris ofte Zendtbrief schryver' handelt over het op de juiste manier van schrijven van brieven en verscheen voor het eerst in 1635. Het boek bestaat uit drie delen, waarvan het eerste deel een algemene inleiding op de zendbrief, taalgebruik en de kwaliteiten van de zendbriefschrijver is, het tweede deel vooral gericht is op het correct schrijven van formele brieven en het derde deel op informele brieven. Binnen het tweede en het derde deel worden verschillende typen brieven naar doeleinden van schrijven behandeld. Een van de belangrijkste punten die in zijn boek terugkeert is het streven naar gepastheid: ""bij elke brief moet men de ontvanger naar zijn waarde aanschrijven.'') ".

        Animorum in Europa et Vicina Asia motus de Suecici belli motu in Polonia.

      Gryphiswaldiae, 1656. - in-4. 62pp. (1f.blanc). Demi-maroquin vert postérieur. Edition Originale (?), imprimée à Greifswald, de cet opuscule paru simultanément à Upsala et qui valut au diplomate strasbourgeois Johann Frischmann (1612-1680) la renommée dans les milieux diplomatiques de l'époque. Dédiée au roi Charles X de Suède, il contenait d'insolentes critiques à l'égard de l'attitude des Habsbourg dans le conflit qui opposait la Pologne et la Suède en 1656. Essentiellement composé d'épigrammes mordantes, l'ouvrage marqua les esprits par l'originalité de son style, le "Lapidarstil" ("style lapidaire"), qu'il popularisa parmi les écrivains allemands de l'époque. A l'époque de la rédaction de cette brochure, l'auteur était au service de l'empereur d'Allemagne Ferdinand III qui avait offert l'asile au roi de Pologne en fuite mais 'année suivante, ayant été appelé par Mazarin qui l'avait remarqué, il passa au service de la France.

Med kobberstukket og trykt titelblade, samt rigt illustr. med 74 kobberstukne tekstillustrationer og 27 udfoldelige kort, plancher og portrætter. 4to. Eksemplar med rødt snit indbundet i senere marmoreret hellæder med farvet titelfelt og rygforyldning. Gammelt navn på det stukne titelblad.

With copperengraved and printed titlepages, with engraved textual illustrations and 27 copperengraved folded maps, plates and portraits. Copy with red edges bound in later marbled full leather with coloured label and golddecorations on spine. Old name on engraved titlepage. A few pages weakly stained in margin. One leaf with small tear restored. A few leaves wrongly paginated.. Adam Olearius [1599-1671], geograf og etnograf. Gesandtskabssekretær, matematiker, astronom, bibliotekar og kunstkammerbestyrer for hertug Frederik III af Gottorp. Var 1633-35 sekretær for et gesandtskab til Moskva og deltog 1635-39 i en sendefærd til Persien via Rusland med det formål at grundlægge en gottorpsk-persisk handel. Hovedudbyttet af ekspeditionen var Olearius' rejseberetning, der udkom første gang i Slesvig 1647 og senere i ovennævnte stærkt udvidede udgave. Bogen vakte betydelig opsigt i samtiden og oversattes til hollandsk, fransk, engelsk og for partiers vedkommende til italiensk. Den udmærker sig ved sine righoldige etnografiske og historiske oplysninger, samt nøjagtige kort, specielt over Volgaegnene, og vidner om hans fremragende iagttagelsesevne over for etnografiske, historiske og arkæologiske foreteelser og om hans kartografiske nøjagtighed. Til 2. udg. føjede O. bl.a. en skildring af Grønlands natur, sæder, skikke og sprog, for det historiske væsentligst bygget på den forhåndenværende litteratur, men væsentligst iøvrigt på iagttagelser, som Olearius og den pommerske kirurg Reihold Horn selv gjorde i forbindelse med de tre grønlandske kvinder der var blevet røvet i 1654 og via København ført til Gottorp slot, hvor de en tid opholdt sig. Reinhold Horn havde selv været på David Dannels tredje ekspedition og lært sig så meget grønlandsk, at han i nogen grad kunne forstå hvad grønlaænderne sagde. Olearius var en baroktidens polyhistor, men hans levende interesse og evne til at iagttage og skildre fremmedartede kulturer giver ham plads mellem etnografiens pionerer. Han ordnede det hertugelige bibliotek, hvis kostbarheder også talte de af ham hjembragte orientalske håndskrifter. En væsentlig del af det hertugelige kunstkammers samlinger udgjordes af ting, Olearius havde hjembragt fra Rusland og Persien. Adam Olearius was a seventeenth-century German scholar, employed as secretary to an embassy sent by the small German state of Holstein to explore an overland trade route with Persia. The first embassy was dispatched to Russia in 1633-34 to secure the tsar's permission to travel and ship through his realm. The second was sent in 1635 to complete the deal with the king (shah) of Persia. Although the commercial mission failed miserably, the embassy was successful in the incredible amount of information gathered by Olearius. After returning to Holstein in 1639, Olearius continued in the Duke's service and published the first edition of his travels in 1647. In 1656 he released a second, enlarged edition which became very popular throughout Europe and within a few years was translated into Dutch, French, Italian and English. Among others this 2nd edition was added a description of Greenland

Er ist der Stifter des klinischen Unterrichtes in Leyden ("Collegium publicum, in qua ad morbos caute curandos studiosi in nosecomio instruuntur") und ertheilte diesen in so ausgezeichneter Weise, das seine Methode völlig mit der noch in der ersten Hälfte des 19.

Cum triplici ... Indice." - "Schultes is famous for his illustrations of surgical procedures and instruments. The first edition (1655) was the only edition published in folio format. This was the most popular surgical text of the 17th century." "Schultes (1595-1645), born at Ulm on the Danube, was a pupil of Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (as was William Harvey) and Adriaan van de Spiegel at Padua where he received a doctorate in medicine, surgery, and philosophy.... His 'arsenal of surgery' was published a decade after his death by his nephew. The work contains accounts of surgical instruments, methods of bandaging and splinting, numerous operative procedures including amputation of the breast, obstetrical delivery by forceps, and one hundred case reports." Iowa 466 - "The Armamentarium Chirurgicum, upon which the fame of Scultetus rests, is a remarkable book for its time. It contains a complete catalogue of all known surgical instruments, of the methods of bandaging and splinting, and a vast number of operative procedures, all of which are illustrated in graphic detail by means of numerous plates. In addition it contains a large number of case reports which give evidence of his surgical daring and skill." Zimmerman and Veith. Great Ideas in the History of Surgery. pp.250-251. - This copy has the extra engraved title dated 1657 which is often missing in other copies, but. As noting is perfect, this charming book is lacking one leaf (pp.125-126, but the plate 35 (p.126) is added as facsimile.

        La Pucelle ou la France délivrée

      Augustin Courbé, Paris 1656 - In-folio. Collation : (52), 522, (12) pp. Vélin à rabats, dos orné, encadrements dorés sur les plats avec fer doré dans les angles. (Reliure de la fin du XIXe.). DESCRIPTION Première édition de ce célèbre poème sur Jeanne d'Arc. Le texte de Chapelain est aujourd'hui quelque peu oublié et a été parodié par Voltaire au siècle suivant. Mais ce volume est remarquable par son illustration, elle est l'oeuvre de deux artistes de grand talent, le peintre Claude Vignon et le graveur Abraham Bosse : un frontispice et 12 belles gravures à pleine page. On y trouve aussi 2 portraits par Robert de Nanteuil, dont l'un d'après Philippe de Champaigne, et de nombreux en-têtes et culs-de-lampe. "La Pucelle", la première ?uvre poétique de Jean Chapelain est un poème en vingt-quatre chants, dont douze seulement furent imprimés, qui contient quelques beaux vers mais dont l'insuccès fit perdre à Chapelain presque tout son prestige. Il s'agit de l'un des premiers livres français illustrés par un peintre et il compte parmi les chefs d'oeuvre de l'illustration au XVIIe siècle. Une galerie de ver marginale rebouchée sur quelques feuillets. Bel exemplaire. Tchemerzine II, 239. Brunet I, 1794.

      Printed by J[ohn]. G[rismond]. for Thomas Robinson in Oxford., London: 1656 - Head- tailpieces. Decorative initial capital letters. Around 1650, Osborne left public service & moved to Oxford, where, for the "last eight years of his life he published a series of historical, political, and moral works, which were read widely during the Restoration and early 18th C. His thinking shows the influence of Hobbes, whose Ôgreat acquaintanceÕ he was (Brief Lives, 1.370)." Osborne is best known for his Advice to a Son, which made him somewhat a celebrity, and helped occasion Pepys' "fondly calling the author Ômy father OsborneÕ and recording in his Diary that Sir William Petty listed the Advice with Browne's Religio Medici and Butler's Hudibras as the works Ômost esteemed and generally cried up for wit in the worldÕ (Pepys, Diary, 19 Oct 1661; 27 Jan 1664)." [ODNB]. Here in this work, Osborne reflects on the greatness of the Ottoman Empire, though Madan notes Osborne was taken to task for his section on Machiavel, for it greatly resembled a 1642 pamphlet entitled "The Atheistical Politician, or a Briefe Discourse concerning Ni. Machiavell". Politicall Reflections a somewhat scarce title in the trade, appearing at auction only a couple times a decade, where, we note on ABPC, in 2008, a 2nd edition fetched close to $3000.

Second Edition (first: 1597) of this interesting compilation on apparitions and demons. "Grosse's Magica is an exceedingly extensive and learned compilation of magical 'precedent cases', and his sources extend from Homer to Petrarch, Luther and Melanchthon. He seems to be mainly interested in showing that demons are essentially swindlers who, although really of a satanic nature, pretend to be angels in order to entice ignorant, unsuspecting, and credulous people into Satan's net." (Faber du Faur) "C'est, avec celui de Lavater, l'ouvrage le plus complet sur les spectres et les revenants." (Dorbon) This important work was apparently overlooked by Thorndike. Grosse drew his material from a variety of sources, a listing of which is given following the dedicatory epistle. Caillet remarks that this edition is attractive and relatively rare. Caillet II 4788.

      Printed for the author ; and are to be sold by H. Robinson, A. Cr. L. Fawn, London 1656 - A bi-lingual edition. Hebrew with English transliteration.

Modern full calf, gilt extra. 8vo. The author, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, was the leading Hebrew tutor in Cromwellian London, when learning Hebrew was all the rage. In spite of the grammatical error in the title, the book matches the Hebrew text of Psalms and Lamentations with an accurate Romanization, according to standard Sephardic pronunciation. Of special interest here is the author¿s six-page Epistle Dedicatory to his patron, John Sadler, constitutional lawyer, Member of Parliament, and Oliver Cromwell¿s private secretary and confidante. Sadler, John Harvard¿s brother-in-law, was one of the leading ideologues of the philo-Semitic Israelite-identifying party among the English Puritans. Robertson¿s career faded away after the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, but finally, in 1680 he was appointed as a Hebrew instructor at Cambridge. SCANS available upon request.

        Novi Belgii Novaeque Angliae nec non partis Virginiae tabula multis in locis emendata a Nicolao Joannis Visschero

      Amsterdam:: Nicolas Jansz Visscher, 1656. Broadsheet (20 1/4 x 23 1/2 in.; 514 x 597). Second state of the map showing t' Fort Kasimier but not Philadelphia, handcolored in outline, cartouche and vignettes of an Indian settlement and animals fully handcolored; light toning, small split at bottom of center fold. LITERATURE AND REFERENCES Burden, The Mapping of America, no. 315; Deak, Picturing America, nos. 38 and 42; Pritchard & Taliaferro, Degrees of Latitude, no. 11 (2nd state); Stokes, Iconography of Manhattan Island, I:119-132, 146-148; Tooley, Mapping of America, p. 284 (2nd state) CATALOGUE NOTE Although this map, originally published in 1655, is largely derived from Jansson's map of 1651, it is extremely important for providing a view of Manhattan island. This is probably the second published view of New York (according to Burden), the first being that of Joost Hartgers in 1651. Stokes places the date of the view in the autumn of 1652 since the building on the far left was not constructed until April 1652. In addition, a wall was constructed for security in 1653 which does not appear in this view. The second state of the map is the earliest available to collectors, as the first state is of extreme rarity, with only three copies known. Improvements on the Jansson map included the addition of the Zuyder Zee below Cape Cod, Chesapeach became Chesapeack, and on Long Island sound Milfort and Ailfort became Strotfort and Milfort respectively. t'kocks Rack is added on the west bank of the Hudson River near Manhattan. The second state of the map was also the source of the first boundary dispute between William Penn and Lord Baltimore of Maryland. Penn contested two points. First was Lord Baltimore's belief that his charter included the Dutch settlements on the east side of the Delmarva Peninsula. Second, Penn questioned whether Baltimore's northern boundary should be at the 40o of north latitude as accurately surveyed or at the latitude where it was thought to have been in 1632 when Baltimore's charter was granted. In 1685, the Privy Council decided in Pennsylvania's favor, and the Delmarva Peninsula was divided equally from the 40o of latitude as far south as Cape Henlopen, with Visscher's map used in that determination. Unfortunately Visscher placed Cape Henlopen twenty-five miles too far south; it was actually located at the protrusion of land that the mapmaker called Cape Cornelius. Because of that, Baltimore lost thousands of acres to Penn.. Book.

Observationes medicinales rarae. ¿ [bound with] BOREL, Pierre. Vitae Renati Cartesii. Paris: Jean Billaine and Veuve Mathunin Dupuis, 1656. 8vo (179x104 mm), [16], 384, 77, [7], 60 pp., 1 woodcut illustration in text titled «Figura materiae lapideae crassae meningi adnatae in mulieri». Contemporary vellum (soiled), internally little browned (some pages stronger), occasional spotting and coal dust soiling. ---- D.S.B., II, pp. 305-06; Garrison- Morton 260 (1653 first edition); NLM/Krivatsy 1571; Wellcome II, p. 204; Norman 269; Honeyman 395. Second edition of the first work to apply microscopy to medicine and almost as rare as the first edition, which was published in 1653; this edition also contains a work by the French physician Isaac Cattier, entitled observationes medicae rariores (first published 1653) and Borel¿s life of Descartes. "Borel probably saw the blood corpuscles and Sarcoptes scabiei."-Garrison-Morton 260. The use of the microscope in medicine revealed another world for physicians and scientists. There are also a number of dental and ophthalmological observations. Borel (1620-1671), was born at Castres, studied medicine at Montpellier, and began his practice at Castres in 1641. In 1653 he went to Paris and about 1654 was appointed physician to the king. During his whole life he ardently pursued the study of natural history, chemistry, optics, astronomy, antiquities, philology, and bibliography. Among his other works are the first bibliography of chemistry (1654) and the first history of the telescope (1655). Besides practicing medicine, Borel collected rarities, plants, antiquities, and minerals from the town itself and countryside surrounding Castres" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Payment receipt for John Gell (probably Sir John Gell), made out and signed by William Humble.

      [London], 10. VI. 1656. - 1f. Oblong 8vo (c. 240:84 mm). Blank form filled in in ink, with papered seal. Payment receipt for the fifth installment for one of the earliest works in British printing history published by subscription, according to Dibdin (I, 23) "the first book ever published in that manner in England": "Received this [10th] day of [June] in the year of our Lord God [1656] of [Jn. Gell Esq.] the summe of [two Pounds] being the [fourth] payment of [ten pounds] by him subscribed or promised, towards the printing of the Bible in the Original & other learned Languages: Witness my hand and seal, the day and the year above written". The Bible edition for which Gell was eventually to pay 10 pounds is the Polyglot Bible edited by Brian Walton (1660-61), "the most accurate and best equipped of the great Polyglots" (Darlow/Moule, 23). The Oxford-educated orientalist Walton drew up a scheme for the project as early as 1847: "[H]aving secured the approval of the Bishops of London, Ely, Salisbury, Rochester, Lincoln, and Exeter, in 1652 he invited subscriptions for the forthcoming Bible, and entrusted the funds to the management of a worthy London citizen, William Humble. This polyglot was one of the earliest publications printed by subscription in England" (ibid., 23f.). The "worthy London citizen" Humble, who administrated the subscription payments and in whose hand the present receipt is filled in, is in all likelihood the London bookseller of that name, whose shop "The White Horse" operated in Pope's Head Alley until 1659 (cf. Plomer, Dict. of booksellers & printers). - Printing commenced in 1653, and the first complete copies were issued in 1658, "though some copies were not issued till after the Restoration, 29 May 1660" (ibid., 24). As a Protestant theological work, the Bible was put on the 'Index Librorum Prohibitorum' as early as 1663, although it "could only be used by specialists, and these could hardly do without it" (cf. Reusch II, 119). Richard Simon admitted in 1692 that it "was praised by all Catholics, even in Rome" (cf. Reusch II, 125). In his 1899 DNB article on Walton, the great orientalist D. S. Margoliouth assesses the merits of the edition: "While the Polyglot was justly regarded at the time of its appearance as an honourable monument of the vitality of the church of England at a period of extreme depression, and, from its practical arrangement, has been of the greatest use to biblical students, with whom, having never been superseded, it still commands a high price, it would also seem to have been a most successful commercial speculation. Though not absolutely the first book printed by subscription in England, it was one of the earliest, and, as has been seen, liberal support was given the undertaking from the commencement; and whereas the price paid by subscription was 10 l., other purchasers probably paid far more; in a letter to John Buxtorf the younger at Basle, Walton puts the price at 50 l." (XX, 727). - Somewhat wrinkled and with minimal damage to the edges (some touching text).
