Anonymous/Maybe Henry Fletcher
London: J. Cottrel, 1660. Hello and Welcome! First True Edition. Rebound in 20th Century. Not Ex-Library. Title page black and red. Published anonymously though sometimes attributed to Henry Fletcher and/or William Raybould, but will probably remain unknown for all time. Very Scare and Rare. Engraving of Cromwell (1599-1658). Pencil signature of someone named Fletcher - first initial is not clear, from Beckham. Could this be Henry Fletcher's own copy? 16mo, period-style full brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and boards, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Scarce first edition of "the only early life [of Oliver Cromwell] of any value" with engraved frontispiece portrait of the Lord Protector, handsomely bound. One of at least three biographies of England's Lord Protector published between his death and the Restoration, The Perfect Politician is "the only early life [of Cromwell] of any value" (DNB). The anonymous author (sometimes identified as Henry Fletcher) "claims that all the developments in the Cromwell's life and career, including his championing of religious liberty and his rejection of the crown, were aimed at personal advancement and the acquisition of power. However, the author clearly retained much admiration for Cromwell's achievements, and The Perfect Politician is by no means unremittingly condemnatory" (Gaunt, 210-11). With engraved frontispiece portrait of Cromwell. Marginal restoration to frontispiece and title page, restoration to extreme upper corners of final few leaves. Interior with light embrowning, a bit of damp staining to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Doncker-- Hendrik (c. 1625-1699)
"Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula". Copper engraving made by Frederick de Wit 't Amsterdam in de Calverstraat inde Witte Pascaart 1660, published in De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Wereld of Hendrik Doncker in Amsterdam from 1660 to 1670. With original hand colouring. Size: 47 x 56 cm (plus margins). This was De Wit's first world map. He derived it from the two hemisphere maps from Blaeu's wall map of 1648, reducing them in scale and making some changes. (Bleau's own smaller world map with two hemispheres can be found here.) The upper corners contain northern and southern celestial maps and the lower corners show north and south polar projections. In the bottom center are astronomical diagrams -- a geocentric one on the left and a Copernican one on the right. The top center vignette shows the sun encircled by a zodiacal ring. Between the maps and diagrams are four vignettes with allegorical depictions of the Four Elements (air, fire, earth and water). The map also includes Baroque decorations of garlands of fruit and flowers. A magnificent example of the art of mapmaking, this map is one of only 19 reproduced in color in Rodney Shirley's major scholarly work on world maps of the 15th to 17th centuries. In accompanying text, the author states that "[e]specially when richly coloured, De Wit's map is one of the most decorative standard-size maps of the time and it is much less commonly found than his three other atlas world maps." Frederick de Wit (1630-1706) was founder of a prominent map publishing firm in 17th century Amsterdam, the golden age of Dutch cartography. The De Wit fami … [Click Below for Full Description]

"For having ever had an obstinate propensity to travel, when I was scarce advanced out of my infancy, and of judgement, neither for discourse, nor election; I felt though secret, such vigorous motion, that I had not power to resist them: So as without considering why, or to what end, like a man forlorn, I threw myself into this course of perigrinations..."[Author's preface] "The Town of Casubi is faire, great, and of good traffick.

Cette publication s'inscrit dans la lignée des recueils de poésies initiés dans les années 1640 et dont le plus célèbre est celui publié par Charles de Sercy entre 1653 et 1660. Sommaville fut l'un des grands libraires de l'époque à en proposer une édition. Sa rareté est telle que Lachevre avoue dans sa bibliographie des recueils collectifs de poésies ne l'avoir jamais vu:«Il nous a été impossible de découvrir ce recueil collectif dans aucune de nos grandes bibliotheques publiques, et nos recherches chez les libraires parisiens n'ont pas été couronnées de plus de succès.«(Lachevre, p. 16). Il ne la décrit qu'a partir d'un exemplaire de l'édition Bobin et Legras de 1666 qui correspond en réalité à la remise en vente de l'édition Sommaville avec les tomes intervertis et les titres renouvelés.

[SOPHIE, Jacques].
Noodighe op-rechtinghe van 't collegie de medecyne, opentlyck bewesen aen d'inwoonders der stadt van Brussel, met 't verhael van alle swarigheden daer-overgeresen, ende weder legginge van d'op-sprake, daer-tegen onglanghs voor ghewendt.Brussels, Guilliam Scheybels, 1660. 4to. With an emblematic woodcut on the last page. [6], 101, [1] pp. Very rare first and only edition of a large collection of stories that exemplify the sometimes fierce rivalries between doctors and apothecaries. It here forms part of an ongoing quarrel between the magistrates of the city of Brussels, represented by the new Collegium Medicum, and the city's apothecaries. In 1641 the city established the Collegium Medicum and published the Pharmacopoeia Bruxellensis in an attempt to regulate the apothecaries. This roused their dissatisfaction because they justifiably claimed they were underrepresented in the Collegium: in fact unrepresented, for all members were doctors. Apothecaries were often also grocers, and in 1659 they threatened to stop paying taxes on beer if the Collegium Medicum was not abolished. This threat succeeded for a few months, but the Collegium was soon re-established. The doctors had momentum and with the present publication they tried to silence the apothecaries' complaints for good. The quarrel continued nonetheless, until they came to an agreement in 1664.Binding lightly worn; a very good copy. Krivatsy 2592; STCV (1 copy); WorldCat (2 copies); Cf. Vandewiele, Geschiedenis van de farmacie in België, pp. 152-155.

Horologe magnetique elliptique ou ovale nouveau, de facile usage, et tres-commode, pour trouver les heures du jour & de la nuict, . . . Toul (Lorraine), Simon Belgrand, G. Perin and I. Laurent, 1660. 8vo. With 8 engraved plates (1-7 numbered) with 46 numbered figures, and a letterpress folding table after page 196. Contemporary parchment made from the lower part of a leaf from a Jesuit manuscript (Acta sanctorum, for 25 July, this part not published until 1729). [12], ''296'' [= 298], [2 blank] pp. First edition of a curious and extensively illustrated work on what the author calls a "horloge magnetique", a horizontal sundial with a rotating magnetic needle. He makes great (and dubious) claims for his invention: it can be used day or night, even when the sky is overcast, as long as one can make out the sun, moon or a known star. The magnetic needle did no doubt help one set it up at any location, as he claimed.The title-page notes that Pierre Georges is Chanoine régulier at the Congrégation de Notre-Sauveur, established by the archbishop of Toul in 1623 under Jesuit influence, and it also gives the Jesuit "IHS" with cross. Given that Jesuit association, the manuscript fragment used for the binding is particularly interesting, for it contains a text known from the Acta sanctorum (which is arranged by the Saints' feast days, in this case 25 July). With an early 19th-century 2-page note on a free endleaf with information about Georges, the dedicatee François Grimaldi and the book. In good condition.

With 2 title-pages, the first printed in red and black, each with a different large (7 x 13 cm) woodcut illustration; and 17 smaller (5 x 6.5 cm) woodcut illustrations (plus 12 repeats) in the text, mostly of Brazilian Indians. 20th-century dark brown calf, with older stiff paper wrappers bound in. [8], 72 pp. Extremely rare Dutch edition of an important and very popular eye-witness account of mid-16th-century Brazil, by Hans Staden (ca. 1520/25-ca. 1557 or ca. 1576), a Hessian artilleryman who served the Portuguese in Brazil in the years 1547-1548 and 1549-1555. During most of his second trip to Brazil he was held prisoner near Rio de Janeiro by the Tupinambá Indians. Already fluent in the Tupi language, he probably gained a more intimate knowledge of the Indians than any other writer of his day. The first part describes his voyages and his capture by the Indians, while the second part describes their culture and customs. Staden's sensational tales of the "savage, naked, very godless and cruel cannibals" of Brazil, published when Europeans knew almost nothing of the New World, immediately made the b … [Click Below for Full Description]

With 4 etched and engraved plates (a full-page portrait of Christina and 3 folding scenes from her journey, the folding plates 10.5 x 13.5 cm). Modern flexible beige paper binding. [20], 88, [4] pp. First issue of the second edition of a rare Dutch account of Christina's six years of travels through Europe after her 1654 abdication as Queen of Sweden, with an etched and engraved portrait of Christina (1626-1689), apparently unique to the present edition, after a ca. 1653 painting by Sébastien Bourdon (1616-1671). The first two editions are both very rare. The three folding plates, showing Christina in Stockholm (her 1654 abdication), Rome (1655) and Paris (1656), are copied from the first edition. After the main text follow four pages explaining the four engravings. The preliminaries of the present edition include two poems by the great Dutch Catholic poet Vondel in praise of Christina.Christina's father, King Gustav Adolf of Sweden, died when she was five years old, leaving her heir to the throne. She was therefore educated as a prince and demonstrated both a brilliant mind and a passion for scholarship, theology, philosophy, literature, politics, music and the arts.

[8], 194; [2], 179, [1], 56; 181, [3]; [8], 152; 39, [1] pp. First edition in Dutch, of John Jonston's classic illustrated zoological encyclopedia. The 250 excellent illustration plates, mostly with three or more animals each, provide accurate views of about a thousand animals, along with some rather odd images of the more exotic beasts and the occasional unicorn, mermaid, dragon, phoenix, harpie, etc. The 6 parts cover quadrupeds; fish (including some sea mammals); "bloodless" sea animals (mostly invertebrates); birds (including bats); "grooved or twisted" animals (insects, spiders, worms, slugs, etc.); and snakes and dragons. A copy of the present edition was presented to the Shogun in 1663, and remained Japan's principal source of knowledge for western zoology for nearly a century (Boxer, Jan Compagnie in Japan, p. 50). Few expert repairs to the binding and in the margin of a few leaves. Good copy. DSB VII, pp. 164-165; Nissen, ZBI 2136; this edition not in BMC NH.

With a folding engraved map of Syria (including Lebanon, eastern Cyprus, and Palestine as far south as Gaza and the Dead Sea), with an inset map of the Lebanese coast from Beirut to Lebanese Tripo. Contemporary mottled tanned sheepskin, with gold-tooled fillets on the spine and boards. [24], 232, [24]; 269, [35] pp. First (and only early French) edition of an account of the Jesuit mission in Syria, along with a description of Syria in general, by the French Jesuit Joseph Besson (1610-1691). He covers much more territory than the modern "Syria", including the whole of Lebanon and much of Palestine, so that there is, for example, a chapter on the churches of Jerusalem. The second part also includes travels in other parts of the Middle East. Before Besson travelled through Syria, Persia and Arabia, he was rector at Nimes and taught rhetoric and philosophy. The first part specifically recounts the establishment, development and progress of the Jesuit mission in Syria. The second part (with a drop-title and its own pagination) describes the holy and sacred sites Besson visited. It gives a very detailed and interesting description of Syria and of the various customs and habits of the Druse, Maronite, Armenian (Catholic and Apostolic), Turkish, Jewish and other people there.

Colom (1600-1673). Like Willem Jansz. Blaeu, Colom first began publishing pilot guides and maritime atlases (no one else dared compete with Blaeu in that field), but both branched out into terrestrial atlases. The maps and portraits are printed from the plates of the rare first Dutch edition (1635), but the text is updated.Apart from the general maps of the Netherlands (in Roman times as well as in the 17th century) and the Seventeen provinces, there are many detailed maps of regions and cities with the surrounding areas, including the Meyery van 's-Hertogenbosch, Bergen op Zoom, Breda, Valckenburgh and Dalem, Malines, diocese of Liège, Namur, Veluwe, Zutphen, island of Dordrecht, Delfland, 6 maps of the new polders (Bylmermeer, Purmer, Wormer, Heer Huygen-waert, Diemermeer, Zype), Walcheren, Ooster- and Westergoe, and Seven wolde.Restor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plat, Hugh
London: Leake, 1660. With an Early Discussion of Wines & Vines, Never Before PublishedSmall 8vo. Woodcut initials and headpieces. 175, [1] pp.; 8 p.l., 159, [1] pp. Contemporary sheep, spine expertly renewed (possibly in the 19th century) with red morocco lettering piece on spine and date in gilt at the foot of the spine, some wear to the upper board, double blind fillet around sides, blind roll-pattern to the edges of the boards, light wear to the hinges, a few wormholes to the tail of the spine, 19th century endpapers. A later edition of the first work, and the FIRST EDITION of the second work. Although issued together, these two titles are almost never found bound together in a contemporary binding and in such good condition. As Bent Jeul-Jensen noted more than fifty years ago, "Plat's books are fascinating documents of the everyday life of an inquisitive and versatile man. They are desirable for their contents and attractive as objects, but unfortunately most of them are so rare that it would be impossible to form a complete collection of his works, and no library possesses all his books." – The Book Collector, Spring, 1959, p. 60. This comment still holds true today. The subjects covered by Plat in his large body of work include cookery, distillation, household management, animal husbandry, and gardening. All of his books are important for researchers of the Elizabethan and Jacobean period. The current volume is comprised of two of Plat's works. The first, The Garden of Eden, is described on the title page as being in its "fifth edition." It is a re-issue of Plat's F … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESSON, Joseph.
La Syrie Sainte. Ou la mission de Jesus et des peres de la compagnie de Jesus en Syrie. Paris, Jean Henault, 1660. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. With a folding engraved map of Syria (including Lebanon, eastern Cyprus, and Palestine as far south as Gaza and the Dead Sea), with an inset map of the Lebanese coast from Beirut to Lebanese Tripo. Contemporary mottled tanned sheepskin, with gold-tooled fillets on the spine and boards. [24], 232, [24]; 269, [35] pp. First (and only early French) edition of an account of the Jesuit mission in Syria, along with a description of Syria in general, by the French Jesuit Joseph Besson (1610-1691). He covers much more territory than the modern "Syria", including the whole of Lebanon and much of Palestine, so that there is, for example, a chapter on the churches of Jerusalem. The second part also includes travels in other parts of the Middle East. Before Besson travelled through Syria, Persia and Arabia, he was rector at Nimes and taught rhetoric and philosophy. The first part specifically recounts the establishment, development and progress of the Jesuit mission in Syria. The second part (with a drop-title and its own pagination) describes the holy and sacred sites Besson visited. It gives a very detailed and interesting description of Syria and of the various customs and habits of the Druse, Maronite, Armenian (Catholic and Apostolic), Turkish, Jewish and other people there. With the author's five-page dedicatory letter to Queen of Poland (Maria Ludwika), whose husband King Jan Casimir II had joined the Jesuit order in 1641. The binding has b … [Click Below for Full Description]

The engraved title-page, devices on the letterpress title-pages, maps, illustrations, and many of the woodcut decorations and initials (including all those on the back of the maps) coloured by a contemporary hand with extensive use of gold. Later (ca. 1800?) blind-tooled calf, 2 pair of brass fastenings. Modern (ca. 1900?) endpapers. [20], 302, [2], 149; 164, [10]; [2], 66 ll.

The 6 maps and the 96 engraved illustrations were produced for insertion in folio editions of the States Bible, but in Van Ravesteyn's 1657 edition maps 2-6 by Nicolaas Visser I were originally accompanied by an older world map by his father Claes Jansz.
