        Typus Generalis Ukrainae sive Palatinatuum Podoliae, Kioviensis et Braczlaviensis terras nova delineatione ezhibens

      Amsterdam 1660 - Bella e importante carta dell'Ucraina. Edita da Janssonius per la prima volta intorno al 1657, è una delle prime carte a stampa a presentare nel titolo il nome Ucraina, dopo il Trattato di Zboriv del 18 Agosto 1649 stipulato con i polacchi. Incisione su rame, bella coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. This map of Ukraine, issued by Jan Jansson in about 1657, is one of the earliest maps to include the name Ukraine in the title of a printed map, following shortly after the Treaty of Zboriv in 1649, although derived largely from Beauplan's maps. printed map, following shortly after the Treaty of Zboriv in 1649, although derived largely from Beauplan's maps. The name Ukraine was popularized in the west by Guillaume La Vasseur de Beauplan's Description d'Ukraine, first published in Rouen in 1651 (in an edition of 100 copies) under a different title, with the named changed as above in the 1660 edition and subsequent editions published in French (1661, 1662, 1663) Latin (1662), Dutch (1664), Spanish (1665 and 1672) and English (1680). The work described Ukraine as several provinces of the Kingdom of Poland lying between the borders of Muscovy and the frontiers of Transylvania. Beauplan, a military engineer, had spent a significant period of time constructing fortresses in the region in the 1630s. In 1650, his map entitled Delineatio Specialis et Accurata Ukrainae, showed the palatinates of Kyiv, Bratslav, Podilia, Volhynia and part of Rus (Pokutia). Another of Beauplan's maps, published in 1648, entitled Delineatio Generalis Camporum Desortum vulgo Ukraina, Cum adjacentibus Provinciis, shows all of the provinces of Poland bordering on the Campus Desertorum or steppe frontier, thereby recognizing the Russian and Polish language references to Ukraine as the "steppe frontier" and leading to the popularization of the name in Western Europe. The region was later defined by the Zboriv Treaty of 1649, which did not include Rus or Volhnia, but did include Chernihiv. This treaty established the Cossack control of the regions and severed Poland's claims and created the region which would come to be known in the west as the Ukraine.

Bibl. verw.: Haitsma Mulier/Van der Lem 232b; Landwehr 102; Lit.: NNBW VIII, 786; Te Winkel IV, p.450. Van der Hoeven, geboren omstreeks 1660 in Amsterdam, heeft daar waarschijnlijk gewerkt als koopman; hij trad - zo blijkt uit de titelpagina - ook op als vertegenwoordiger van de hertog van Saksen. Eén jaar voor 'Hollands aeloude vryheid' had Ten Hoorn een ander omvangrijk historisch werk van hem uitgegeven, 'Leeven en dood der doorlugtige heeren gebroeders Cornelis de Witt [...] en Johan de Witt', waarvoor Romeyn de Hooghe ook de titelpagina had geleverd. Wilhem de la Palma, aan wie het werk is opgedragen, was van 1702 tot 1705 directeur-generaal van de West-Indische Compagnie op de Goudkust, waar hij het hoog gezag by zulke Volkeren voerd, die in tegenstelling van ons, de volkomene voorbeelden van de slaverny zijn, schrijft Van der Hoeven onbekommerd in de opdracht, waarmee hij ongetwijfeld de algemene opinie verwoordde. Ook het toneel had zijn belangstelling: hij was lid van het toneelgenootschap 'In magnis voluisse sat est' en heeft een zestal toneelstukken geschreven, deels oorspronkelijk, deels bewerkt naar het , 523, . Hij moet in of na 1727 zijn overleden, want zijn laatste stuk, de klucht 'De drie Hamburgers', dateert van dat jaar.

Ex: Leather, ribbed back with title label, sides in marbled paper, corners damaged, otherwise good exemplar. Bibliography: Haitsma Mulier/Van der Lem 232b; Landwehr 102; Lit.: NNBW VIII, 786; Te Winkel IV, p.450. Van der Hoeven, born in Amsterdam around 1660, perhaps worked there as merchant; he was also - according to the title page - agent of the duke of Saksen. One year before 'Hollands aeloude vryheid' Ten Hoorn published another extensive historical work by him, , 'Leeven en dood der doorlugtige heeren gebroeders Cornelis de Witt [...] en Johan de Witt', for which Romeyn de Hooghe made the title page. Wilhelm de Palma, to whom this work is dedicated, was general director of the Dutch West India Company on the Golden Coast. He was also member of the theatrical company 'In magnis voluisse sat est' for which he himself wrote pieces or translated some from French. He died perhaps after 1727, since his last known piece 'De drie Hamburgers' is dating from that year. RdH013 ".

Med det ?Odensehische Vertrag? från 1579 och tryckfelslistan, vilka saknas i somliga exemplar. Gunde Rosenkrantz (1604-75), son till Holger Rosenkrantz, var danskt riksråd. Från 1657 propagerade han ivrigt för att påbörja ett nytt krig mot Sverige och skrev ett antal mycket hårda skrifter mot det nordliga grannlandet och dess krigsförbrytelser mot Danmark, bl. a. denna som författades på danska regeringens uppdrag. 1664 hade han dock kreditorer efter sig och såg ingen annan utväg än att fly till Sverige, och 1670 ansökte den tidigare så ivrige danske patrioten om att bli svensk undersåte, men förgäves. I misär dog han i Helsingborg, inte välkommen vare sig i Danmark eller i Sverige. Vid sidan av politik bedrev han ivrigt teologiska och klassiska studier, och publicerade även en del uppbyggelselitteratur, som delvis även översattes till svenska.

The ninth, first posthumous, edition of De motu cordis, which Keynes places before the London edition with the same dates, the latter being the first edition published in England. 'Harvey's treatise is, in fact, more important as a demonstration of scientific method in biological research than as an annunciation of the fact of the circulation of the blood. From this beginning has flowed all subsequent biological knowledge in an ever widening stream. Harvey's De motu cordis is therefore justly considered to be one of the most fruitfull and important books ever published' (Keynes). 'Wilhelm Langley's (1616-1668) excerpts and comments on Harvey's De generatione animalium along with his own observations and experiments. The first six plates, depicting various stages in the development of the chick embryo, are the first illustrations of Harvey's text to be published' (Heirs of Hippocrates). Keynes flatly denies the last assertion, but others support it. Keynes however has this to say in his biography of Harvey: '[De generatione] was soon appraised at its true value by a few later workers in the field of embryology, notably Willaim Langley, physician of Dordrecht' (Keynes p. 360).

        FIDES-ANGELICANA. OR A PLEA FOR THE PUBLICK-FAITH OF THESE NATIONS . .

      London: s.n., 1660. FIRST EDITION. Written at the beginning of the Restoration period in England, this anti-imperialist pamphlet pleads for the fair compensation and equitable treatment of its citizens for the sake of the nation's honor. The author, no doubt, counted himself among those who were unjustly treated by Parliament; indeed, his financial problems seem to have been closely tied to the volatile political climate and his relative favor or unfavor. Although Wither (1588-1667) made his name as a poet and satirist, he became increasingly radicalized in his mature adulthood, associating with the progressive Levellers during the English Civil War. After Charles II's rise to power, Wither produced this and several other anti-imperialist pamphlets, for which he was sent to Newgate and then to the Tower under the charge of seditious libel. Despite his imprisonment, Wither continued to write and publish a number of works including "Paralellogrammaton" and "The Prisoners Plea" (both 1662). DNB speculates that the present work was probably published in 1661 (despite the 1660 imprint on the title) due to a reference to Venner's rising, which occured in January of that year. This work also contains a list of the author's publications on pp. 90-94, including a few works that are now lost.. 160 x 105 mm. (6 3/8 x 4 1/4)" [2], 94 pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sheep.

        De Insectis [Metamorphosis Naturalis]

      Overview Details & Condition The uncommon second Latin edition of this "extremely important and influential study" (Jorink, Reading the Book of Nature in the Dutch Golden Age, p. 201), the translation by Fellow of the Royal Society Martin Lister, with his notes and addendum on English species. Originally published in three volumes under the title Metamorphosis Naturalis between 1660 and 1669. The Dutch painter Johannes Goedart (also spelled Goedaert; 1617-1668) was the first European to "embark on a systematic study of the generation of insects" (Jorink, "Between Emblematics and the 'Argument from Design', Early Modern Zoology, p. 156). Beginning in the 1630s, he painstakingly traversed the countryside around his home in Middelburg, collecting caterpillars and other insect larvae, raising them in glass jars, and carefully observing their "strange transformations". Although Goedart did not make any major scientific advances in entomology or taxonomy - he interpreted his observations within the framework of his religion and was a strong supporter of spontaneous generation - his work is significant for the emphasis it placed on metamorphosis at a time when other natural historians focused on insect life stages in isolation from each other. Additionally, Goedart was innovative in his choice of subjects, including, among the 150-plus species he described, previously neglected groups such as flies, bumblebees, wood lice, and moths out of the conviction that none of God's creatures were to be "despised, but that they are all disposed well and with ineffable wisdom". Also appealing are his detailed and well-executed plates, which depict all the stages of each insect's life-cycle together. Though Goedart's work was criticised by scientists such as Swammerdam, it proved extremely popular among collectors and artists. "Metamorphosis was accessible, entertaining, and attractively illustrated... the work was very widely distributed and was often translated and cited. It was common in Dutch collections of books, but was also popular outside the Netherlands... Goedaert provided a particularly strong impulse for the study of other insects than the usual bees, ants, and butterflies. His accessible books conveyed the same message as the works of Hoefnagel and Aldrovandi, but the contents and distribution of the latter raised their threshold much higher... It is probably to a large extent due to Goedaert that the study and collecting of these creatures began to enjoy a rapidly growing popularity after 1660. Insects, which had been viewed ambivalently since time immemorial, were slowly but surely becoming acceptable in polite society" (Jorink, Reading the Book of Nature, pp. 208-209). This volume is a particularly nice, unsophisticated copy in contemporary vellum with an attractive hand-written title on the spine. in Methodum Redactus; cum Notularum Additione. Opera M. Lister, e Regia Societate Londinensi. Item Appendicis ad Historam Animalium Angliae, Ejusdem M. Lister, Altera Editio Scarabaeorum Anglicanorum quibusdam Tabulis mutis. London: S. Smith, 1685. Octavo (180 x 115 mm). Contemporary limp vellum folded over at the fore-edge, handwritten title to spine, edges of text block red speckled. 21 folding engraved plates depicting numerous insects on each plate. Marks, spots, and dulling of the vellum, spine may have been cleaned in the past, hinges a little cracked but holding firm, light spotting and toning at the edges of the leaves, closed tear to the final plate in the addendum which depicts mussels A very good, unsophisticated copy.

Il letterato ferrarese Daniello Bartoli (1608-1685) entrò a 15 anni nella Compagnia di Gesù, di cui nel 1650 fu nominato storiografo. Le sue opere sono numerosissime ma la più importante è la "Istoria della Compagnia.." (1653-73), divisa in sezioni (Asia, Giappone, Cina, Europa: Inghilterra, Italia), una delle più articolate e complete storiografie del Seicento, sui continenti e nazioni dove i Gesuiti avevano operato. Basandosi sulle dirette informazioni di questi intorno alle condizioni dei vari paesi (riti, usanze, costumi, leggende, cronache, fatti politici e notizie geografiche), trascende i limiti di una storia particolare delle vicende della Compagnia, per diventare una specie di storia universale. Purtroppo questa titanica impresa rimarrà incompiuta. Di non facile reperibilità l’opera completa, in edizione originale come la ns., ad eccezione della prima parte che è però accresciuta di una importante relazione (mancante alla I ediz.)

Library stamp on verso of title) (Note: This Latin grammar was commissioned in 1625 by the Provincal Governments of Holland and West-Frisia (Staten van Holland) for the use in local Latin schools in the Western part of the Dutch Republic. It was produced by the Dutch classical scholar Gerardus Johannes Vossius, 1577-1649, according to Sandys the greatest polyhistor of his age. In 1622 he was appointed professor of Eloquence at Leyden, and in 1631 he accepted the professorship of History at Amsterdam. His Latin grammar remained the standard grammar on Dutch schools untill the middle of the 19th century. In 1625 the 'Staten van Holland' decreed, that the same set of rules should apply to all public schools in their provinces. The schools should have the same order of classes and lessons, the same schedule, authors and exercises. It was decided that uniform schoolbooks, grammars and sound texts were needed. (E.J. Kuiper, 'De Hollandse 'Schoolordre' van 1625', Groningen, 1958, p. 80) The 'Staten of Holland' wanted to improve education at the Latin-schools, which prepared for the University, for the standard of education and discipline had got worse because of the Eighty Years' War. The grammar was first published in 1626, and found the next 2 centuries numerous new and revised editions. The first volume contains the latina etymologia, the second the latina syntaxis, the third the latina prosodia) (Provenance: Library stamp on verso of title: 'Grosherzogliche Bibliothek Neustrelitz'. 'Die 1796 gegründete Herzogliche, später Grosshezogliche Bibliothek Neustrelitz umfasste zunächt die private herzogliche Büchersammlung und enthielt 1829 etwa 50.000 Bände. Dieser Bestand wurde in den nächsten 50 Jahren kaum vergrössert. (...) Für 1875 werden sehr unsicheren Schätzungen - die Bibliothek war unterbesetzt - 60.000 bis 70.000 Bände angegeben, erst ab 1894 erhöht sich diese Zahl auf 100.000. Obwhol der Philologe Friedrich Latendorf (1831-1898) den Wert der Bibliothek für das geistige Leben des Landes immer wieder betonte (...) musste er feststellen, dass wichtige Werke fehlten, Disziplinen wie Medizin und Juristerei fast völlig vernachlässigt waren und der Bibliothek seit ihrer Gründung der Charakter des Zufälligen anhaftete' The schoolboy Heinrich Schliemann saw in the underpaid librarian Carl Andress, 'der offenbar kein abgeschlossenes Studium (Literatur, alte und neue Sprachen) besass', 'einer der gelehrtesten Männer Deutschlands'. (U. Hass-Zumkehr, 'Daniel Sanders: Aufgeklärte Germanistik im 19. Jahrhundert', Berlin/New York 1995, p. 307/08) The library had in 1920 132.000 volumes. In 1950 the library was 'aufgelöst und ihre Bestände auf acht Bibliotheken und Museen in Schwerin, Greifswald, Rostock und Berlin aufgeteilt worden. Mit dieser Aktion ging der betroffenen Region eine unersetzbare Quelle der kultur- und regionalgeschichtlichen Forschung verloren'. (B. Fabian, Handbuch der historischen Buchbestände in Deutschland (online)) (Collation: *8, A-L8 (leaf L8 verso blank); a-l8) (Photographs on request)

        Relatione delle missioni de' vescovi vicarii apostolici, mandati dalla S. Sede apostolica alli regni di Siam, Cocincina, Camboia, e Tunkino.Rome, printed by the Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide, 1677. 4to. Modern vellum.

      Cordier, Indosinica, col. 827; ICCU 024 167; cf. Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 239-240, 385. First and only Italian translation of a work on the French mission to Siam, Cochinchina, Cambodia and Tonkin, originally written in French. It contains the story of three French Jesuits who left Paris around 1660 to go as missionaries to the Far East. One of them died on the journey, but the other two, Louis Chevreuil and Antoine Hainques, made it to Southeast Asia. Chevreuil arrived in 1664 in Siam, and within five months he traveled to Cochinchina, where he had to leave due to persecution of Christians, discussed in the second part of the book. Hainques arrived in Cochinchina in 1665. Chevreuil was sent to Cambodia, which is covered in the third part of the book. The book is based on their letters and reports. Each part mentions the journey the missionaries took and the places they visited, giving descriptions of Mosambique, the islands Madagascar, Réunion and Cape Verde and more.Some minor foxing throughout, the first two leaves and the last leaf slightly soiled, and a small restored tear in the second leaf, otherwise still in good condition.

      1660 - "For the Ease of the Justice of Peace, And More Speedy Dispatch of Justice" Sheppard, William [d.1657?]. The Justice of the Peace, His Clerks Cabinet: Or, A Book of Presidents, Or Warrants, Fitted and Made Ready to His Hand for Every Case that May Happen Within the Compass of His Masters Office. For the Ease of the Justice of Peace, And More Speedy Dispatch of Justice. London: Printed by D. Maxwell, For William Lee, Daniel Pakeman, And Gabriel Bedell, 1660. [xvi], 127, [1] pp. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, blind fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Title printed within typographical border, typographical head-pieces, woodcut decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, occasional light soiling, chips and edgewear to title page and several leaves, a few with recent repairs, lower section lacking from rear endleaf. Early annotations to rear endleaf, interior otherwise clean. A nice copy in an attractive binding. $950. * First edition, one of two issues from 1660. Active in the Protectorate, where he was Cromwell's legal advisor, Sheppard aimed to reform the common law. Ahead of his time in many ways, some of his proposals anticipate changes that were adopted in the nineteenth century. His work was well-received and deeply influential. Some of his books, most notably The Touchstone of Common Assurances (1648), were standard authorities into the nineteenth century. A second edition of his JP manual was published in 1672. This is a very scarce work. Counting both imprints, OCLC locates 9 copies of the first edition, 7 in North America, 4 in law libraries (Northwestern, Southern Methodist University, University of Pennsylvania, Yale).

        Receuil, des plus beaux portails de plusieures eglises de Paris.[Paris], Jacques van Merle, 1660. Series of 11 (of 12) engraved prints, including the title-print, showing elevations and plans of 17th-century Parisian baroque churches, portals and altars, some naming the architects Mansart, Brosse and Le Mercier. With:(2) MAROT, Jean. [Recueil de plusieurs portes des principaux hostels et maisons de la ville de Paris ensemble le retable des plus considerables autels des eglises].[Paris, Pierre Mariette II, ca. 1660/65]. Series of 19 (of 20) etched prints showing portals of numerous Paris churches and civic buildings. (3) LE PAUTRE, Jean. Retables dautels a lItaliene inventes et graves par Jean Potre .Paris, Pierre Mariette II, [ca. 1660/65].

      - Extensive description on request Interesting and important early collection of 11 very rare architectural print series (with a few additional prints from other series bound with them) giving in total 120 engraved and etched plates of churches, other buildings, portals, altars, mantelpieces, ceilings and wall panels, alcoves, pulpits, architectural decorations (including helmets, military insignia, decorated borders, friezes, masks), fountains and grottoes, mainly in Paris and surroundings. The prints are etched and engraved by the best and most famous artists in Paris in the 1650s and 1660s: Jean Le Pautre, Jean Marot ('Le grand Marot'), Pierre Cottart, Jean Boisseau, Antoine Pierretz and Francesco Fanelli. All but Boisseau's were published and printed by the two most famous printers of engravings and etchings: Pierre Mariette II and Jacques van Merle. None of the 11 series is demonstrably later than 1661, though some may be later in the 1660s. The fact that each print series at least generally shows a consistent paper stock and the fact that the endleaves show a watermark contemporary with the latest print series strongly suggests that each series comes from a single impression as published and that they were bound together soon after publication: this is not a collection assembled from separate prints by a collector. It is of the greatest importance for the history of French architecture during the seventeenth century.
