OLIVA, Franciscus [II]
Marseille, 1658. Marseille,, 1658. Franciscus Oliva Me Fecit in Civitae Marsilia Anno Domini 1658. 1658. Portolan atlas (510 by 340mm) comprising of 10 manuscript charts on vellum (six double page and four single page) pasted on thick card, coloured in ink wash and gouache throughout and heightened in gold, lavish decorative motifs on compass roses, scale bars, armorial shields and name cartouches, each chart within a simple yellow border, the outlines in sepia, main islands in gold, the rest in red, blue, green, coastlines red, blue, green and pink, rivers in blue, main names in red and the rest in brown ink, rhumblines in sepia, red and green; some typical signs of wear, particularly on the borders, resulting in some tears and losses which in some cases have been reinstated; owner label pasted to upper marbled paper pastedown, contemporary vellum binding. The portolan chart originated in thirteenth century Italy, as an aid to the pilots navigating their way across the often treacherous Mediterranean Sea. They are characterized by rhumb lines, lines that radiate from the centre in the direction of, often elaborate, wind or compass points that were used by pilots to lay courses from harbour to harbour. Generally drawn on vellum and often embellished in silver and gold, they were, at their height during the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries, some of the most beautiful examples of the mapmaker's art ever produced. The current portolan was drawn by Franciscus Oliva of Marseille. The earliest work signed by Franciscus Oliva is dated 1650, although there is a 164 … [Click Below for Full Description]

He also made provided groundwork in Arminianism and is considered and 'economic theologist'. In addition to his most famous work 'De Jure Belli', Grotius published an important historical account of the Dutch Low Countries - 'Annals and Histories of the Low Countries'. This work includes reports and commentary on the Dutch East and West India Trade companies as well as a 17th-century perspective on trade in the Americas.

Beveridge, William
London Thomas Roycroft, 1658. First edition. Two works bound in one volume; 8vo (18.5 x 12 cm); pp.[viii], 38 [mispaginated 26]; 144-1, [viii]. With Syriac and Hebrew text and a few words printed in Arabic. A very good copy bound in modern half calf over marbled boards; one faint, marginal dampstain. Later ownership inscription of Stephen Freeman, dated 1787; with a page of his notes to one of the initial blanks and a number of marginal annotations in ink. An introductory Syriac grammar with a short treatise on the importance of Semitic languages to theological study, both written by William Beveridge (1637-1708), who published these works while still a young scholar of St John's, Cambridge; the first is dedicated to John Maynard (1600-1665), a dissenting minister, the second to Anthony Tuckley (1599-1670), Master of St John's, and, in the words of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, "a theological dinosaur". Thomas Roycroft published the London polyglot Bible between 1653 and 1657 and employed the same Syriac type, most likely cut by Nicholas Nicholls, in these works. Though the letter forms have a number of flaws, and several are confusingly formed, it is a handsome script, distinct from its continental predecessors. Beveridge became a prominent high churchman and a distinguished scholar of the early church; he was a founding member of the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge in 1698. He was appointed Bishop of St Asaph in 1704 and died in post. His grammar and treatise emphasise the importance of Syriac as the language of Christ and Syriac study as t … [Click Below for Full Description]

'Opuscula Sex Philosophica Simul Collecta', 'Opus Illustre in felicem memoriam Elizabethae Angliae Reginae' and 'confesso Fidei Anglicano Sermone Conscripta' all have separate dated title pages, as called for.

The mutual invasions and slaughters, which these two Nations have made one upon another, have filled their Histories, and are so many, as are not well to be reckoned up." ― R.H., A Discourse, Chap viii Richard Hawkins, more commonly referred to simply as R.H., wrote his book, 'A Discourse', in which he "proclaimed [it] to be the very first book in praise of the English nation. Hawkins placed the emphasis on military achievement. Though he celebrated the end of the Civil War, he saw prophesying further victories abroad." (Norbrook, 309). Norbrook also calls this book a founding document of English nationalism, with tendencies towards a Cromwellian monarchy. Hawkins writes of important figures in English history and those who helped shame the landscape of the English nation. Those include: · Oliver Cromwell · Sir Walter Raleigh · Queen Elizabeth · Julius Caesar · Harold Harfager (Fairhair), King of Norway · Teutonic Germans, Saxon invasion · Wars with Spain · Wars with France · Civil Wars and wars with Scotland; Irish rebels.

Martinii is acclaimed as the father of Chinese geographical science. During an international convention organized in the city of Trento a member of the Chinese academy of Social Sciences, Prof. Ma Yong said: "Martini was the first to study the history and geography of China with rigorous scientific objectivity; the extent of his knowledge of the Chinese culture, the accuracy of his investigations, the depth of his understanding of things Chinese are examples for the modern sinologists". Ferdinand von Richthofen calls Martini "the leading geographer of the Chinese mission, one who was unexcelled and hardly equalled, during the XVIII century. There was no other missionary, either before or after, who m … [Click Below for Full Description]
