SANSON, Nicolas
Paris, 1658. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with outline hand color. Image measures 15 3/4" x 20 1/2". 1683. This lovely map of Denmark is both informative and highly decorative. Focused on Denmark, this map also includes the northern coast of Germany. The southern portions of Sweden shown here were at the time a part of Denmark. The independent duchies of Schleswig and Holstein, then in personal union with Denmark, are also indicated. Throughout, the map is labeled with rivers, towns, cities, marshes and lakes with mountains and forests beautifully rendered in profile. Coastal features including shoals and banks are also noted. An elaborately etched title cartouche is included in the top right corner. The map is in very good condition with minor wear along the centerfold. Original press mark is visible. Nice dark impression.<br><br>Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) is considered the founder of the French school of cartography. In reaction to the prevailing trend of Dutch lavishness, Sanson favored minimal details, focusing rather on accurate cartography than ornament. This map is a fine example of his work.

SENECA.- GRONOVIUS,J.F.
Amsterdam (Amsterlodami), Apud Ludovicum & Danielem Elzevirios, 1658. 12mo. (XXIV),490,(25 index),(1 blank) p. Overlapping vellum 14 cm (Ref: Willems 1228; Berghman 1280; Rahir 1257; Copinger 1974; Schweiger 2,912) (Details: 6 thongs laced through the joints. Woodcut printer's mark of Louis and Daniel Elzevier on the title, depicting Minerva under an olive tree. She holds a banner with the motto: 'Ne extra oleas', to be understood as 'Stay within the bounds of wisdom'. The Amsterdam Elseviers Louis and Daniel Elsevier produced more than 600 editions, and 256 of them have this motto 'ne extra oleas'. It seems more or less the equivalent of the printer's mark (a philosopher under an olive tree) and the motto of the famous French scholar/printer Robertus Stephanus 'noli altum sapere', 'Be not high-minded'. Stephanus' printer's mark and motto clearly inspired the Elseviers. (See for the motto and its sources ((www))jstor.org/stable/289286?seq=6#page_scan_tab_contents) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned and slightly worn) (Note: The classical scholar of German descent Johann Friedrich Gronov (1611-1671), or Johannes Fredericus Gronovius, was the successor of Heinsius at the University of Leiden, and was influenced by Vossius, Grotius, Heinsius & Scriverius. His editions mark an epoch in the study of Livy, of Seneca, Tacitus & Gellius. The pages 1-351 contain Gronovius' notes on the Dialogues, the Letters, Quaestiones Naturales, and the Apocolocyntosis, of the Roman author, statesman and Stoic philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca, ca. 4 B.C. - 65 A.D.

Paris: Pierre le Petit; 1658. 448 S. Ldr. mit 5 künstlichen Bünden und Goldschmuck. Kanten etwas berieben und bestossen. Leder am Rücken teils ausgebessert. Gold minimal abgeplatzt und mit minimalen Wurmlöchern. Im Ganzen jedoch sehr ordentliches Exemplar. La Mère Isabelle des Anges (1565-1644) ist eine von sechs Karmeliterinnen, die 1604 von Spanien nach Paris kam und dort an der Verbreitung karmelitischer Klöster mitwirkte. Der Karmeliterorden (Ordo Fratrum Beatae Mariae Virginis de Monte Carmelo) ist nach dem im hl. Land liegenden Gebirgszug Karmel benannt. Dort ließen sich nach der Eroberung Palästinas durch die Kreuzfahrer Eremiten nieder, welche die Traditionen des frühchr. Mönchstums, der weltabgewandten Askese bzw. strengster Armut pflegten. Die Tradition führt den Karmeliterorden auf den Propheten Elias zurück, der neunhundert Jahre vor Christus lebte und die Erscheinung der Maria in einer Wolke erblickte. Der entscheidene Impuls zu dem großen Aufblühen eines weibl. Ordenszweiges erfolgte erst in der 2. Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts in Spanien im Zusammenhang mit der von Teresa v. Avila und Johannes vom Kreuz initiierten und von Kg. Philipp II,. geförderten Reformbewegung. Der Orden nimmt in Anspruch, gegründet worden zu sein, um die Muttergottes zu verehren. Die heilige Teresa von Avila sagt deutlich, daß das Verlangen der Karmeliter dahin geht, "allein mit dem Alleinigen zu sein". Gott offenbart sich dem Herzen in Einsamkeit und daher arbeitet jede Nonne so viel wie möglich allein ihrer Zelle. Französisch

Samuel Hart (1845-1917) was dean of the Berkeley Divinity School, the (un)official "middle way" seminary of the Episcopal Church at Middletown, Connecticut. In 1886, he became the third custodian of the Standard Book of Common Prayer. In 1892, he became secretary of the House of Bishops. In 1898, he became the fourth historiographer of the Episcopal Church. He served in all three of these offices until his death. (In 1893, he was elected Bishop of Vermont, but he declined the office.) He was also (in 1891), elected president of the American Philological Association, a non-profit scholarly organization devoted to all aspects of Greek and Roman civilization.

AN.
1658. lettera manoscritta (mm.310x215) composta da 8 pagine non numerate (le ultime 2 bianche) e indirizzata "Al mach.e Villa si contenterà di decifrare questa da se stesso". La lettera è infatti interamente composta da cifre e nell'interlinea compaiono le parole corrispondenti che un anonimo ha anticamente già decifrato. L'autore della missiva, che si firma in calce ma non ci è possibile risalire al nome, scrive questa lettera da Modena il 10 giugno 1658: dal testo si evince che si preoccupa di dare indicazioni di tattica militare circa lo spostamento delle truppe nelle località di Tortona, Valenza, Frascarolo, la richiesta di approvvigionamento di munizioni, sacchi di farina, il passaggio di cavalli e fanti a Serravalle, invita il destinatario della lettera (il Marchese Villa) ad attraversare il Po ed aspettare le truppe per sorprendere il nemico, indica la volontà di gettare un ponte per passare l'Adda. Sono citate molte località: Trino, Mortara, Valenza, Tortona, il Ticino, Piacenza... Probabilmente siamo nell'epoca della guerra tra Francesco I d'Este (1610-1658), Duca di Modena, e la Spagna, quando con il suo esercito franco-piemontese progettava l'occupazione del Milanese; il Marchese Villa fu abile condottiero e guidava la cavalleria piemontese, la guerra durò fino al 1659. Ottimo stato di conservazione, salvo traccia di piegatura. [167]

Second French edition bringing together these two texts of Garcilaso de la Vega appeared for the first time in Spanish in 1650. Title frontispiece representing the foreground the landing of Spanish troops in the US and the second the beleaguered indigenous population at the heart of a city fire. In the lower part, a banner with the inscription "Quid non mortalia pectora COGIS auri sacra fames", taken from the Aeneid of Virgil and translated by Molière "O accursed hunger for gold, up where you do strength-Point to bring the heart of men.

Ex-dono on the title page the initials "EHL".Illegitimate child of a conquistador and an Inca princess, raised in two different cultures, Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616) offers a unique view of the Inca civilization rejecting a Eurocentric vision. If in his royal Comment, published for the first time in France in 1633, de la Vega presented the history of the Inca rulers, he proposes here a story of conflict with lively Spanish settlers after their arrival in Peru. It is for him to translate the upheaval caused by these wars, both Aboriginal and both for the Spaniards. In his address to the reader, de la Vega explains that the Inca rulers had managed to found an empire made up of "the Virtues Morales, Policy, & Military"; the ar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johannes JANSSONIUS (1588-1664)
1658. Splendida veduta prospettica, a volo d'uccello, di Amsterdam, durante il secolo d'oro olandese. La mappa è orientata a sud-ovest, e mostra il centro della città racchiusa all'interno delle mura medievali. I nuovi confini della città e il nuovo sistema di canali sono raffigurati con fortificazioni costruite sulla destra e disegnate con linee tratteggiate per mostrare l'area che doveva essere collegata al termine della costruzione. Migliaia di edifici piccoli sono mostrati divisi dal fiume Amstel, e molti mulini a vento punteggiano l'area esterna della città. Ai margini di destra e sinistra, una dettagliata legenda con 110 luoghi notabili. In basso, in primo piano, numerose barche a vela e banchine riempiono il porto. In alto a sinistra campeggia lo stemma della città, mentre a destra. Questa lastra di Janssonius è molto simile a quella omonima del Blaeu pubblicata nell'Atlante delle città, rispetto alla quale esclude la dedica e l'imprint in basso a sinistra. Incisione su rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Esemplare dell'edizione G. Leti del 1690.
