      1657. Incisione in rame di mm 410x515. Bella veduta tratta da "Theatrum celebriorum urbium Italiane", la monumentale opera, che amplia quella di Braun-Hogenberg. In basso a destra legenda con rimandi numerati. In alto lo stemma cittadino. Janssonius, relativamente agli atlanti, fu in collaborazione con il cognato Henricus Hondius prima e dal 1638 da solo il più importante concorrente dei Blaeu a cui ispirò ed uniformò la produzione, tanto da costringere Blaeu, anch'egli Jansson di cognome, a scegliere uno pseudonimo per differenziare la propria opera. Buon esemplare con restauro a strappo nel margine sin.

After publishing several general atlases himself he became the associate of Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints.In 1647 Sanson accused the Jesuit Philippe Labbe of plagiarizing him in his Pharus Galliae Antiquae; in 1648 he lost his eldest son Nicolas, killed during the Fronde. Among the friends of his later years was the great Condé. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien (d. 1708) and Guillaume (d. 1703), succeeded him as geographers to the king.In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sanson's maps in an Atlas nouveau. See also the 18th century editions of some of Sanson's works on Delamarche under the titles of Atlas de géographie ancienne and Atlas britannique; and the Catalogue des cartes et livres de géographie de Sanson (1702).

         Annotations Upon All the Books of the Old and New Testament: This Second, Edition so Enlarged, As they make an entire Commentary on the Sacred Scripture: The like never before published in English. Wherein The Text is Explained, Doubts Resolved, Scriptures Parallelled, and Various Readings observed. By the Labour of certain Learned Divines thereunto appointed, and therein employed, As is expressed in the Preface (1651) (Vol. 1); Annotations Upon All the Books of the Old and New Testament: This Third, Above the First and Second, Edition So Enlarged, ... (1657) (Vol. 2)

      London: John Legatt (Vol. 1); Evan Tyler (Vol. 2), 1657. Second edition. Hardcover. poor to vg. Folio (13 3/4 x 9 1/2"). Unpaginated. 18th-century full calf, with gold lettering to spines. Woodcut headpieces and initials. Each volume is housed in a modern orange cloth covered clamshell box, with gold lettering to spine. Originally published in one volume in 1645, this two volume set was published for the Westminster Assembly, hence known as the Assembly's Annotations, or as the English Annotations, in distinction to Haak's Dutch Annotations of 1657. The preface (found in the first volume) recounts a short history of the English Bible. - Vol. 1 contains the first three books of The Westminster Annotations and Commentary on the Whole Bible, and covers Genesis to 2 Kings; 1 Chronicles to Job; and Psalms to Song of Solomon - Vol. 2 contains the last three books of The Westminster Annotations and Commentary on the Whole Bible, and covers Isaiah; Jeremiah to Malachi; and the complete New Testament from Matthew to Revelation. These Annotations were produced by some of the most qualified English Puritans. In his "History of the Puritans" (1732-1738), Daniel Neal furnishes us with a helpful (though partial) list of each of the specific authors and books of the Bible they worked on in the "Annotations": Rev.

         Annotations Upon All the Books of the Old and New Testament: This Second, Edition so Enlarged, As they make an entire Commentary on the Sacred Scripture: The like never before published in English. Wherein The Text is Explained, Doubts Resolved, Scriptures Parallelled, and Various Readings observed. By the Labour of certain Learned Divines thereunto appointed, and therein employed, As is expressed in the Preface (1651) (Vol. 1); Annotations Upon All the Books of the Old and New Testament: This Third, Above the First and Second, Edition So Enlarged, . (1657) (Vol. 2)

      John Legatt (Vol. 1); Evan Tyler (Vol. 2), London 1657 - Folio (13 3/4 x 9 1/2"). Unpaginated. 18th-century full calf, with gold lettering to spines. Woodcut headpieces and initials. Each volume is housed in a modern orange cloth covered clamshell box, with gold lettering to spine. Originally published in one volume in 1645, this two volume set was published for the Westminster Assembly, hence known as the Assembly's Annotations, or as the English Annotations, in distinction to Haak's Dutch Annotations of 1657. The preface (found in the first volume) recounts a short history of the English Bible. - Vol. 1 contains the first three books of The Westminster Annotations and Commentary on the Whole Bible, and covers Genesis to 2 Kings; 1 Chronicles to Job; and Psalms to Song of Solomon - Vol. 2 contains the last three books of The Westminster Annotations and Commentary on the Whole Bible, and covers Isaiah; Jeremiah to Malachi; and the complete New Testament from Matthew to Revelation. These Annotations were produced by some of the most qualified English Puritans. In his "History of the Puritans" (1732-1738), Daniel Neal furnishes us with a helpful (though partial) list of each of the specific authors and books of the Bible they worked on in the "Annotations": Rev. Mr. Ley, subdean of Chester (The commentary on the five books of Moses), Dr. Gouge (1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther), *Mr. Meric Casaubon (The Psalms), Mr Francis Taylor (Proverbs), Dr. Reynolds (Ecclesiastes), *Mr Smallwood, recommended by archbishop Usher (Solomon's Song), Mr. Gataker (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations), *Mr. Pemberton in the first edition and *Bishop Richardson in the second (Ezekiel, Daniel, and the smaller Prophets), Mr. Ley (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), Dr. D.

         An ACT For LIMITING And SETLING [sic] The PRICES For WINES. At the parliament begun at Westminster the 17th Day of September, Anno Domini 1656

      London: Printed by Henry Hills, and John Field, Printers to His Highness, 1657. 1st edition (Wing E-1046). Not in Gabler, nor Goldsmith. Printed self-wrappers. VG (split developing along fold). Now housed in archival mylar sleeve.. [2], 2 pp. Commonwealth seal to t.p. Folio: *2. 10-5/8" x 6-3/4" Gabler, though not listing this item, does briefly discuss (& list) divers tracts & pamphlets written in the early 1640s voicing public outrage over a contract between Charles I and the Vintner's Company of London- under said contract the Vintners agreed to pay a 46 shilling tax on every ton of Spanish & French wine & also agreed to annually buy a certain amount from English importers. In return, the vintners were permitted to sell cooked victuals (a proviso *not* in their original charter) & allowed to recoup the tax by charging a penny a quart more that the officially published price. The ultimate effect was to give the Vintners' Company a monopoly on the wine trade, all the while enriching the coffers of Charles I. Needless to say, wine drinkers were livid. Parliament eventually responded in the consumers' favor. [Gabler, pp. 2-3]. This act of Cromwell's establishes limitations on prices for Spanish & French wines, a proclamation issued perhaps in memory of the Vintner's Company earlier attempts at profiteering?

      J. J. Schipper 1657 & 1665, Amsterdam - Folio (9-1/2" x 15") masterfully bound in recent full vellum lettered in brown on the spine with new endpapers. Six parts in one, four with an engraved title page and two with woodcut title vignettes: DE QUADRUPEDIBUS (1657), [3]-6, [2], 163, [1] pages; DE PISCIBUS ET CETIS (1657), [1]-5, [3], 160 pages; DE EXANGUIBUS AQUATICIS (1665), 58, [2] pages; DE AVIBUS (1657), [12], 160 pages; DE INSECTIS (1657), [8], 147, [1] pages; DE SERPENTIBUS (1665), 37, [1] pages. Jonston's complete and comprehensive compilation of the animal kingdom lavishly illustrated with hundreds of engraved figures, many fanciful or imaginary, many the work of the great German artist Matthew Merian. This copy with 243 of 250 plates (249 called for), most with several figures each, including 79 of 80 in the Quadrupedibus section (lacking plate 49); 48 of 47 in the Piscibus et cetis section (includes one plate not recorded in Nissen: plate 48 with images of a narwhal, containing details of its skull and horn); 19 of 20 in the Exanguibus aquaticis section (lacking plate 3); 57 of 62 in the Avibus section (lacking plates 11, 13, 29, 30, and 34); 28 of 28 in the Insectis section; and 12 of 12 in the Serpentibus et Draconibus section. Anker 235; Graesse III, 477; Nissen ZBI 2131, 2133, 2134; 2132, and 2135; Wood, page 409. An important and wonderfully illustrated work on natural history with great influence well into the 18th century. Jonston was a physician of Scottish decent, born on the Continent, where he spent the better part of his life. Jonston practiced other occupations in addition to being a physician, and in 1650 he published the first version of his zoology. Jonston is now seen chiefly as a "learned compiler" and his sources for the present work were wide ranging, but probably the main influence was Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605). In addition to the technical merits of this book, Jonston also had a good imagination, as some of the creatures illustrated never existed: hippos with strange features, dragons, unicorns, griffons, and animals with human faces. A book that usually suffered from much use, this copy is certainly above the average normally encountered. One plate bound upside down; small tape stains on a handful of plates; one plate with a neatly repaired tear; another plate with slight loss of image. Generally clean and crisp, handsomely bound.

         Poems by J. C. With Additions, never before Printed [BOUND WITH] A Character of a Diurnal-Maker

      London: NP, 1657. Later edition. Hardcover. g+ to vg. 24mo (5 3/4 x 3 3/4"). [6], 107, [1]pp (Poems); [2], 12pp (A Character of a Diurnal-Maker). 19th century 3/4 olive morocco over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering to spine. Raised bands. Engraved frontispiece portrait of John Cleveland. Decorative head-, tailpiece, and initial. 13th edition of Cleveland's "Poems," bound with "A Character of Diurnal-Maker," both having separate title pages. English satirist, elegist, and poet, John Cleveland (1613-1658) is recognized as one of the most popular satirists and poets of the 17th century. With over twenty-five editions of his poems appearing between 1647 and 1687, he was respected as a lyrical genius and a valuable asset to the Royalist party during the English civil wars. His work has provided a detailed examination of the history and politics of the mid-1600s through his caustic satire, somewhat biased by his allegiance to the king. Cleveland is also acknowledged as one of the last metaphysical poets, often utilizing the technique of extended metaphor. Spine and upper front joint age-toned. Previous owner's name in ink at upper margin of front free endpaper (Leland N. Carlson). Binding in overall good+, interior in very good condition.

         Graecium vulgo Gratz, Metropolis Stiriae". Altkolorierter Kupferstich von Wenzel Hollar. Aus: Johannes Janssonius, Urbium Totius Germaniae.

      Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1657 - Zahn 1058/6. Nebehay-W. 277, 56. Skreiner, Steiermark in alten Ansichten Nr. 6: "Dieser große Kupferstich ist die erste mit topographischer Genauigkeit erarbeitete Ansicht der Stadt Graz, die vom holländischen Kupferstecher und Topographen Lorenz van de Sype, der 1634 in Graz starb, begonnen wurde. Die Ausführung dürfte wohl das Verdienst des 1607 in Prag geborenen hervorragenden Zeichners und Stechers Wenzel Hollar gewesen sein, der diesen Stich auch signierte. . Der Stich zeigt erstmals die Ansicht von Süden auf Graz. Graz, mit seinen Vorstädten und dem Umraum, dem Grazer Feld, wird in diesem breitangelegten Kupferstich mit großer Genauigkeit in der Wiedergabe der Gebäude, vermindert in der Landschaft, gegeben. . Um die Stadt übersichtlich darstellen zu können, wählte Hollar einen sehr hohen Augenpunkt, der ungefähr mit der höchsten Stelle der Festung auf dem Schloßberg bestimmt werden kann; daraus entsteht eine Vogelperspektive, die eine Aufsicht auf die Stadt ermöglicht. Trotz gewisser Ungenauigkeiten, die vor allem die geographischen Verhältnisse der Umgebung betreffen, ist Wenzel Hollar ein ausgezeichneter, plastisch körperhaft darstellender Stecher, der die topographische Aufnahme in eine durchaus belebte Darstellung umzusetzen vermochte". - Kleine restaurierte Randläsuren. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 0 [Attributes: First Edition]
