        [South America] Zuyder deel van America uyt gegeven

      Colom's is one of the earliest obtainable Dutch Sea Charts to show the Sea Coasts of South America. The map shows the coastal features of South America south of the Equator, with a large inset of Central America.  The chart is executed in the Portolan style, with rhumblines and fine coastal detail for the time period. Arnold Colom was the son of Jacob Colom, a well-regarded Amsterdam bookseller, printer, and chart-maker. Colom produced two sea atlases, a guide and pilot for the Mediterranean and a general sea atlas of the World. Colom's Zee Atlas, published between 1654-58, was one of the largest format sea atlases of the 17th Century, with each chart printed from an oversized copper plate. Koeman describes the atlas as "One of the most important atlases in the well known category of Dutch sea-atlases". Apart from its rarity, the Zee-Atlas was of importance for its inclusion of the earliest Dutch sea chart of the New Netherlands to appear in an atlas (Jacob Theunisz Lootsman's chart is believed to pre-date it, but seems not to have been regularly published until later), while the "three charts of the oceans are on the same scale (1:14mill.) as Portuguese and Spanish charts of that time. It marked the first time that such charts were published as atlas sheets" (Koeman IV, p.115).

Small 4to. With engraved frontispiece drawn and engraved by Joannes Lamsvelt and 16 plates engraved for this edition, at least mostly by Lamsvelt. Recased in contemporary(?) vellum, new endpapers.

      R. Davidson, A book collector's notes, p. 43; STCN (4 copies); Tiele, Land- en volkenkunde, pp. 111-112; cf. Landwehr, VOC 373 (the associated journal). Rare second Dutch edition of an extensively illustrated account of an imaginary voyage to western Australia, based on the story of the wreck of the VOC ship Vergulde Draeck in 1656, first published in French in 1676 (without illustrations) and in Dutch in 1682 (with illustrations), all three anonymously. Many of the illustrations may have been inspired by better known exotic lands, such as Southeast Asia, the East Indies, India and Iran, and some depict natives in Islamic turbans. Europeans still knew almost nothing about Australia when Vairasse first published his account and his wild stories caught the imagination of the public and went through many editions. They give a good picture of what was then known and/or surmised about these little-explored regions and may have generated more enthusiasm for voyages of exploration than the more sober factual accounts. The frontispiece shows 9 little images of fabulous creatures. Some may now seem comic but at the time they probably seemed more plausible than a kangaroo or a platypus.With the margins of a dozen leaves and the frontispiece tattered and restored, two leaves with a couple tears into the text repaired and another with the corner torn off (but preserved loose) affecting 3 words of a shoulder note. The other leaves and plates are in good condition. With the boards slightly bowed and dirty, but the binding still good. Fascinating stories of an imaginary voyage to Australia, giving insights into European expectations of exotic peoples and lands.

      London: Jacob Flesher, 1656. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good antiquarian condition. Octavo, 184 x 123 x 24 mm (binding), 180 x 121 x 20 mm (text block). Collation: [+]8 (++)8, B-N8, O4, P1 (Errata leaf, lacking in this copy as commonly). Pagination: [32], 74, 68, 57 pp. Bound in contemporary sprinkled calf. Caps chipped, head joints starting, corners bumped. Interior: Title with small chip out of fore margin, damp-staining to tail margin of first gathering and last two gatherings. Preserved in a folding cloth protective case. Only edition of this important illustrated astronomical text, An attractive volume, well printed with scores of typographic diagrams and one folding plate. Seth Ward, English mathematician, autodidact, and astronomer, here expands upon Kepler's Second Law of Planetary Motion, one of three fundamental laws of astronomy and physics which is of threefold significance: 1). It describes elliptical orbits with the Sun at one of two foci; 2). Dictates equal areas and equal time intervals swept out by a rotating line segment, and 3). States that the square of the orbital period of a body is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit. The Astronomia Geometrica was essentially Ward's second, and more complete, response to Ismail Boulliau's "Astronomia Philolaica" (Paris: 1645), in which Boulliau attempted to remove some of the notorious difficulties that Kepler's Second Law had presented to astronomers in the thirty-six years since its introduction to science. But Boulliau, in his work, only succeeded in making matters more confusing. He imagined cones of sorts, and pictured planets moving about axes central to these cones. In the present work Ward remarked that this was like imagining a body moving in an "elliptical orbit with uniform angular velocity about the empty focus of the ellipse, the Sun being at the other focus" (Source: ODNB). Seth Ward (1617-1689), Bishop of Salisbury, was a founder member of the Royal Society, and in 1649 was appointed Savilian professor of astronomy at Oxford University earning his reputation with his theory of planetary motion which he expounded in "Astronomica." Ward's work was highly influential, especially among the next generation of English and Continental astronomers, who would have had to have struggled with trial and error and tedious approximation using Kepler's original formulae.

Back ornate nerves. As an exhibit in red morocco. A lack headdress. Hitch with the upper jaw missing tail. Frottements.Bon copy. Car is first of all a style, not only in his letters (love letters), and his poetry but also in his prose, see for example the delicious Metamorphoses. His works were the image of man, gallant, teaching fine language and good manners to those familiar with the Rambouillet hotel. His fame was great during his century and remains an emblem for the seventeenth century. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Cinquième édition des Œuvres de Voiture, dont l'originale est parue en 1648 ; et édition originale des Nouvelles œuvres de Voiture. Un frontispice de Mellan pour le premier volume, un bandeau et une lettrine dans l'épître et un beau portrait de l'auteur par Champaigne gravé par Nanteuil. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Un manque en coiffe. Accroc avec manque au mors supérieur en queue. Frottements. Bon exemplaire. Voiture (1597-1648) fut toute sa vie un galant et un courtisan, brillant dans les salons et jouant aux jeux. Son talent épistolaire lui valut de mettre longtemps en France la prose à la mode, et ses poésies excellent dans le ton maniériste et précieux, même s'il sait tour à tour être trivial quand il le faut. C'est un personnage incontournable de la scène littéraire du début du XVIIe, un vrai personnage de Molière. Voiture, c'est tout d'abord un style, non seulement dans ses lettres (Lettres amoureuses) et ses poésies mais également dans sa prose, voir pour exemple les délicieuses Métamorphoses. Ses œuvres furent à l'image de l'homme, galant, enseignant le beau langage et les belles manières aux habitués de l'hôtel de Rambouillet. Sa renommée fut très grande durant son siècle et il demeure un emblème pour le XVIIème siècle.

Fine full red morocco with raised bands, gilt spine lettering, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt, elaborately gilt blind-tooled inner dentelles, engraved armorial book plate on front board.l The very rare first edition. "The Lettres provinciales (Provincial letters) are a series of eighteen letters written by French philosopher and theologian Blaise Pascal under the pseudonym Louis de Montalte. Written in the midst of the formulary controversy between the Jansenists and the Jesuits, they are a defense of the Jansenist Antoine Arnauld from Port-Royal-des-Champs, a friend of Pascal who in 1656 was condemned by the Faculté de Théologie at the Sorbonne in Paris for views that were claimed to be heretical. The First letter is dated January 23, 1656 and the Eighteenth March 24, 1657. A fragmentary Nineteenth letter is frequently included with the other eighteen. In these letters, Pascal humorously attacked casuistry, a rhetorical method often used by Jesuit theologians, and accused Jesuits of moral laxity. Being quickly forced underground while writing the Provincial Letters, Pascal pretended they were reports from a Parisian to a friend in the provinces, on the moral and theological issues then exciting the intellectual and religious circles in the capital. In the letters, Pascal's tone combines the fervor of a convert with the wit and polish of a man of the world. Their style meant that, quite apart from their religious influence, the Provincial Letters were popular as a literary work. Adding to that popularity was Pascal's use of humor, mockery, and satire in his arguments. The letters also influenced the prose of later French writers like Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Brilliantly written by Pascal, the Provincial Letters would not have been possible without the work of theologians from Port-Royal; indeed, most of the arguments Pascal deployed were already to be found in Arnauld's Théologie morale des Jésuites, something which led the Jesuit Nicolas Caussin to reply to Pascal's perceived libel. Pascal's main source on Jesuit casuistry was Antonio Escobar's Summula casuum conscientiae (1627), several propositions of which would be later condemned by Pope Innocent XI. Paradoxically, the Provincial Letters were both a success and a defeat: a defeat, on the political and theological level, and a success on the moral level. Thus, King Louis XIV ordered that the book be shredded and burnt in 1660. The final letter from Pascal, in 1657, had defied the Pope himself, provoking Alexander VII to condemn the letters. But that didn't stop most of educated France from reading them. Moreover, even Pope Alexander, while publicly opposing them, nonetheless was persuaded by Pascal's arguments. Just a few years later (1665-66, and then 1679), Alexander condemned ‘laxity’ in the church and ordered a revision of casuistical texts" (Wikipedia, partly after PMM). This copy bound with "Nobilissimi Scutarii Blasii Pascalis tumulus" (1662), pp. [1-2] 3-4; and with "l'Apologie pour les casuists contre les calomnies des iansenistes: par un theologien & Professeur en droit Canon. Condamnée par nosseigneurs les prelats, & par la Faculté de Theologie de Paris". Paris, 1659. pp [i-iv], 1-191. In all a beautiful copy of Pascal’s 18 Provincial letters, bound in fine red morocco in 1865 by Chambolle-Duru, for the collection of Benzon (?) and including two other rare works relating to Pascal. Further provenance: inscription to title ‘Ex libris Congregationis domus Missionis Trecensis’, repeated on the 8th letter. PMM, 140. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Nederste bageste bindebånd mangler, enkelte blade med svag fugtskjold og rift i den udfoldelige planche smukt repareret, men stadig et velholdt og meget attraktivt eksemplar. * Hver af bogens fire dele - undtagen første, som er trykt sidst - har selvstændigt titelblad med trykårene 1650-55.

        Combattimento di Tritoni

      1656 - Acquaforte con ritocchi di puntasecca, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il Rosa ha eseguito tre stampe di questa tipologia raffigurante il combattimento di tritoni, probabilmente assai congeniale al suo modo eroico di interpretare l’antico. È chiara nell’artista l’ispirazione desunta dalle Battaglie di dei marini di Andrea Mantegna, delle quali ricrea anche lo spirito gioioso del mito pagano, e con le analoghe composizioni di Odoardo Fialetti. Le opere sembrano essere state eseguite nello stesso periodo delle Diverse Figure, databili tra il 1656 e il 1658. Etching with touches of drypoint, signed in plate lower right. Beautiful proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, thin margins, in excellent condition. The Rosa has performed three prints of this type depicting the battle of newts, probably very congenial to his own way of interpreting the ancient heroic. It is clear in the artist the inspiration derived from the Battles of marine Gods by Andrea Mantegna, which also recreates the joyful spirit of pagan myth, and with similar compositions of Odoardo Fialetti. The works appear to have been made in the same period of Different figures, dating from between 1656 and 1658. Bartsch 12; Rotili 13; Wallace 93; Massari, Tra Mito ed Allegoria, p. 440, 166.

Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 1585, noten, för det andra arbetet. Edmund Gripenhielm (1622-75) hette Figrelius innan han adlades 1660. Han utnämndes efter en lång bildningsresa i Europa till professor i historia vid Uppsala universitet 1650 och blev riksråd 1673. Han var dessutom Karl XI:s lärare. Föreliggande verk behandlar den romerska skulpturen och är Sveriges första tryckta konstvetenskapliga arbete. Enligt Sten Lindroth är den "typisk för genren, imponerande främst som lärdomsprov. Figrelius har gått igenom hela den tillgängliga antika litteraturen, textställen från grekiska och romerska författare flödar, också inskriftsmaterial använder han. Här stod allt att inhämta i ämnet, systematiskt ordnat: de olika slagen av romersk skulptur, hur guda- och kejsarbilder dyrkades, vilka enskilda personer som hedrades med statyer och formella ting om känslornas uttryck i höjda händer (gestuosa manus). Utblickar ges mot Grekland och Orienten, religionshistoriska problem antyds. Plinius var en guldgruva, liksom Strabon, Suetonius och Plutarchos; bara sporadiskt öppnar Figrelius diskussion med moderna forskare. Fastän den antika skulpturen för tidens klassicism framstod som högsta norm, undviker han estetiska värderingar". Schefferus arbete behandlar "de gamles halsringar" enligt Lindroth.

        De plantis exoticis libri duo.

      Venice, Giovanni Guerilio, 1656. - 4to. (16), 344 pp. Engraved architectural title with portraits of Theophrastus and Dioscorides, 145 finely etched and engraved botanical plates in the text, ornamental initials. Contemporary blind-tooled calf with gilt spine. Edges sprinkled in red. Third edition (in fact, a re-issue with changed title page date only) of Alpini's further observations on exotic plants. The specimens here presented were collected primarily in Crete and the Eastern Mediterranean, including many xerophilous plants from Egypt and scores of plants not mentioned in earlier works. The first edition was published posthumously in 1627 and was edited by the author's son, Alpini Alpini. The work (in all its editions) is much rarer than the author's better-known "De plantis Aegyptii". "Date altered by hand [from 1629] to MDCLVI" (Krivatsy). - Prospero Alpini (1553-1617), an Italian physician and botanist, travelled through Greece, Crete, and Egypt from 1580 to 1583 with the Venetian Consul Giorgio Eno. He worked as a medical advisor and took the opportunity to carry out botanical investigations. His work includes the first European recognition of the medicinal value of coffee and introduced banana and baobab. "Alpini became professor of botany at Padua after having spent three years in Egypt" (Garrison/M., p. 992). - Binding rebacked, showing some light wear to extremeties, but a good, clean copy. Provenance: removed from the Large Library at Goodwood House (Chichester, West Sussex) with bookplate on front pastedown; latterly in the collection of Cornelius J.

        The Antiquities of Warwickshire Illustrated; From Records, Leiger-Books, Manuscripts, Charters, Evidences, Tombes, and Armes: Beautified With Maps, Prospects and Portraictures

      London: Thomas Warren, 1656. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Folio, attractively bound in contemporary paneled leather boards (some restoration to edges and corners) and newer leather spine with 6 raised bands, gilt titles. Bookplate of Richard E. Coe on front pastedown, and his name in ink on the front free endpaper, dated 1967, along with earlier signatures of John Edward Taylor Loveday (1876) and William Godwin. pp [xvi], 232, 283-460, 471-732, 743, 724-826, [14], with frontis portrait of the author and numerous engraved maps, plates, and illustrations in the text. Binding sound. Frontis portrait with repair to verso, old dampstain extending 2-3 inches up and 5-6 inches out from from lower gutter visible on much of text-block, occasional pages with soiling or repaired marginal tears. DNB: "Over twenty-five years in the making, [The Antiquities of Warwickshire] stood in the tradition pioneered by William Lambarde's Perambulation of Kent (1576). It is also indebted in its method to Camden's Britannia, following the rivers of the shire in order to progress from site to site. The history of the towns is briefly given, with speculations on the meanings of the placenames. Regional commodities are noted. But the main business is to record the families associated with each place, to record their notable deeds and to list their intermarryings and burials. The hundreds of coats of arms that fill the pages make it clear that genealogy is the prime concern of the book. Warwickshire was extensively illustrated with etchings by Hollar, including an authoritative frontispiece depicting Dugdale surrounded by manuscripts; his continued desire thus to enliven his books with illustrations was a commendable advance in the production of antiquarian works at this period."

Small 4to. With engraved frontispiece drawn and engraved by Joannes Lamsvelt and 16 plates engraved for this edition, at least mostly by Lamsvelt. Recased in contemporary(?) vellum, new endpapers.

      - R. Davidson, A book collector's notes, p. 43; STCN (4 copies); Tiele, Land- en volkenkunde, pp. 111-112; cf. Landwehr, VOC 373 (the associated journal). Rare second Dutch edition of an extensively illustrated account of an imaginary voyage to western Australia, based on the story of the wreck of the VOC ship Vergulde Draeck in 1656, first published in French in 1676 (without illustrations) and in Dutch in 1682 (with illustrations), all three anonymously. Many of the illustrations may have been inspired by better known exotic lands, such as Southeast Asia, the East Indies, India and Iran, and some depict natives in Islamic turbans. Europeans still knew almost nothing about Australia when Vairasse first published his account and his wild stories caught the imagination of the public and went through many editions. They give a good picture of what was then known and/or surmised about these little-explored regions and may have generated more enthusiasm for voyages of exploration than the more sober factual accounts. The frontispiece shows 9 little images of fabulous creatures. Some may now seem comic but at the time they probably seemed more plausible than a kangaroo or a platypus.With the margins of a dozen leaves and the frontispiece tattered and restored, two leaves with a couple tears into the text repaired and another with the corner torn off (but preserved loose) affecting 3 words of a shoulder note. The other leaves and plates are in good condition. With the boards slightly bowed and dirty, but the binding still good. Fascinating stories of an imaginary voyage to Australia, giving insights into European expectations of exotic peoples and lands.

        La Pucelle ou la France délivrée.

      Paris, Augustin Courbé, 1656. ____ 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 oeuvre 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. *****. 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.).

        ASTRONOMIA GEOMETRICA: UBI Methodus proponitur qua Primariorum Planetarum Astronomia sive Elliptica Circularis possit Geometrice absolvi. OPUS, Astronomis hactenus desideratum

      London: Jacob Flesher, 1656. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good antiquarian condition. Octavo, 184 x 123 x 24 mm (binding), 180 x 121 x 20 mm (text block). Collation: [+]8 (++)8, B-N8, O4, P1 (Errata leaf, lacking in this copy as commonly). Pagination: [32], 74, 68, 57 pp. Bound in contemporary sprinkled calf. Caps chipped, head joints starting, corners bumped. Interior: Title with small chip out of fore margin, damp-staining to tail margin of first gathering and last two gatherings. Preserved in a folding cloth protective case. Only edition of this important illustrated astronomical text, An attractive volume, well printed with scores of typographic diagrams and one folding plate. Seth Ward, English mathematician, autodidact, and astronomer, here expands upon Kepler's Second Law of Planetary Motion, one of three fundamental laws of astronomy and physics which is of threefold significance: 1). It describes elliptical orbits with the Sun at one of two foci; 2). Dictates equal areas and equal time intervals swept out by a rotating line segment, and 3). States that the square of the orbital period of a body is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit. The Astronomia Geometrica was essentially Ward's second, and more complete, response to Ismail Boulliau's "Astronomia Philolaica" (Paris: 1645), in which Boulliau attempted to remove some of the notorious difficulties that Kepler's Second Law had presented to astronomers in the thirty-six years since its introduction to science. But Boulliau, in his work, only succeeded in making matters more confusing. He imagined cones of sorts, and pictured planets moving about axes central to these cones. In the present work Ward remarked that this was like imagining a body moving in an "elliptical orbit with uniform angular velocity about the empty focus of the ellipse, the Sun being at the other focus" (Source: ODNB). Seth Ward (1617-1689), Bishop of Salisbury, was a founder member of the Royal Society, and in 1649 was appointed Savilian professor of astronomy at Oxford University earning his reputation with his theory of planetary motion which he expounded in "Astronomica." Ward's work was highly influential, especially among the next generation of English and Continental astronomers, who would have had to have struggled with trial and error and tedious approximation using Kepler's original formulae.
