        Homer his Iliads Translated, Adorn'd with Sculpture, and Illustrated with Annotations

      London: printed by Thomas Roycroft, to be had at the Author's House, 1660. Folio. Letterpress title in red and black. Engraved frontispiece, engraved portraits of Ogilby and Charles II, engraved statue of Homer and 48 plates engraved by W. Hollar and others after Cleyn and others. Contemporary red morocco, expertly rebacked to style retaining the five central compartments of the original spine, marbled endpapersProvenance: S.P. (initials in gilt on the spine)First edition of Ogilby's lavishly illustrated edition of Homer's Iliad, among the most beautiful editions ever printed.John Ogilby began his professional life a far cry from the world of publishing, as an apprentice to a dancing master. Having no formal education, he began learning Latin in his forties with the help of members of the University of Cambridge whom he had befriended. In 1649, having had some success at a young age with creating his own verse, he attempted a translation of Virgil. Meeting with a positive response, he turned his study to Greek so that he could translate Aesop and Homer. Beyond simple translations, his editions of such classics include significant marginal annotations, synthesizing previous scholarship. However, the common thread among his works, and the principal reason for his success in his lifetime and beyond, are the numerous illustrations which adored his works.The illustrated folio editions of such classics were a new and welcome addition to the mid-17th century English book market and led to the larger more expansive geographical works for which he is best remembered. For the lavish illustrations in his works, Ogilby commissioned prints from some of the best designers and engravers working in England, including Francis Cleyn ( d. 1658), Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677), William Faithorne ( c. 1620-1691), and Pierre Lombart (1612/13-1682). To subsidize his publications, particularly costly because of the quality of both paper and illustrations, Ogilby was one of the first publishers to be fully successful at using a combination of subscription and lotteries.Ogilby's version of the Iliad first appeared in 1660; five years later, he published his translation of the Odyssey. A second edition of the Iliad followed in 1669 (although with fewer plates than the original). "The versions of [Homer by] John Ogilby fired the enthusiasms of a youthful Alexander Pope, and despite his later reservations, furnished many rhymes and potential couplet-shapings for his own versions. Both were lavishly illustrated folios 'replete with magnificent plates which depicted the Greek and Trojan heroes in dignified costumes, settings and attitudes in the grand manner of Renaissance painting', and which offered a more coherent impression of Homer than the text" (Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature, p. 170).The provenance of this volume is intriguing. At the Ham House sale (Sotheby's, 24-5 November 1947), a third folio Shakespeare similarly bound in morocco with the same initials on the spine, was suggested at the time to have been from Samuel Peyps's library. However Nixon, in his 1984 work on Pepys's bindings, refutes the attribution: "The suggestion made 'tentatively' in the Ham House sale catalogue ... that the fine turkey copy of the Third Folio with the initials 'SP' on the spine might have been Pepys's is wildly improbable. He certainly did not use turkey leather for any of his bindings during the 1660s nor did he add his initials to the spine of any of his books." The owner of this fine copy of The Iliad remains an unidentified collector of the Restoration period.Wing H-2548; Schuchard 7.

Mit ihr ließ sich die Vergänglichkeit aller irdischen Macht und die Unüberwindlichkeit des Heiligen Römischen Reiches als letztes der vier Weltreiche vor dem Jüngsten Gericht auf damals durchaus allgemeinverständliche Art darstellen.

Die Stadtansichten im Hintergrund sind immer mit Fabeltieren ( Monstern) am oder im Wasser dargestellt.

        Institutionum D. Justiniani. Liber Primus (Quartus).

      1660 ca. 1660 - Manuscrit in-8 (120 x 180 mm) de (2) f. de garde (100) ff., écriture cursive très lisible à l?encre brune, maroquin rouge, dos à cinq nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, décor à la Duseuil sur les plats, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Superbe recueil calligraphié des Institutions de Justinien en latin établi dans la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle certainement à des fins scolaires, un ex-libris manuscrit contemporain de l'ouvrage en attestant : Ce livre appartient à Mlle Watellet. Les Institutions furent d'ailleurs rédigées comme un manuel pour accompagner la promulgation du Code et du Digeste de Justinien, afin de faciliter l'enseignement et l'étude du droit. Inspiré en grande partie de celui de Gaius, il en reprend pour l'essentiel le plan, en séparant les personnes et les biens, séparation qui est encore celle du Code civil français et de beaucoup de textes juridiques contemporains. Très bel exemplaire en maroquin rouge du temps.

        Icones Principum Virorum Doctorum, Pictorum Chalcographorum Statuariorum nec non Amatorum Pictoriae Artis numero centum

      Antwerp: Gillis Hendricx, ca 1660. Folio (379 x 281 mm; 143 4 x 11 1 4 inches). Engraved title incorporating an etched self-portrait and 109 etched or engraved plates, including 11 etched by Van Dyck himself (nos. 98-108); the remaining etched or engraved by Jacob Neefs (3), Lucas Vorsterman (26), Paulus Pontius (30), Pieter de Jode (14), Schelte Adams Bolswert (11), Adriaen Lommelin (2), Nicolaes Lauwers (1), Robert Van Voerst (7), Cornelius Galle (1), Andreas Stock (1), Willem Hondius (2), Willem Jaconszoon Del (1), and Pieter Clouwet (1). The majority with foolscap watermark; countermark "AH". Interleaved with wove paper throughout. (Some occasional pale spotting, pl. 44 with 1-in. repaired marginal tear, overall generally clean and fresh.) 19th-century red morocco, gilt-lettered on spine, edges gilt, by Chambolle-Duru (joints rubbed, with top of front joint partly split, board edges somewhat toned, a few scuffs and scratches). Provenance: Pierre Mariette (1634-1716), from the Parisian family of engravers, booksellers, and print sellers (signature on verso of 103 of the plates, each dated between 1660 and 1693; two-pages notes on one leaf at front, summarizing the life and work of Van Dyck; manuscript index of subjects and plate numbers [inserted in manuscript on each plate, upper right] inlaid in larger sheet after the leaf of notes); with Morgand (stock number on front free endpaper); Robert Schumann; with Bernard Quaritch; John Galvin (initialed gift inscription, 1982); the present owner. A fine, tall copy of this important work in the history of portraiture with a superb provenance. Final states of the plates, after the addition of the title-page in 1645 by Hendricx, and after the erasure of the address of Marinus van den Enden, and the erasure of the initials of the publisher ("G.H."). Of the fteen plates now ascribed to Van Dyck himself, eleven are present in this copy, with the other four having been re-engraved, as is the case with the Hendricx issue. "Sir Anthony Van Dyck stands out as the solitary great etcher of the school. Portrait etching had scarcely had an existence before his time, and in his work it suddenly appears at the highest point ever reached in the art" (Hind, p.v165). "The plan of this publication took shape after Van Dyck returned from Italy (1626) and before he went to England (1632). He made careful preparatory drawings in chalk and brush for the publication. He directed and revised the work of the engravers, the best of the Rubens circle; he collaborated with his etching needle in some of the plates and himself etched the most beautiful set, mainly portraits of artists. One of the most brilliant in human characterization is the portrait of Peter Brueghel the Younger, son of the great Peasant Brueghel. It is remarkable that the etching appeared in this sketchy form in the book, proving that the master regarded it as nished. All interest is focussed on the wonderful hand. The first edition was published in Antwerp in 1635-1636. Yet it was not complete, and the title-page did not appear before the Gillis Hendricx edition of 1645, engraved by Jacob Neels" (Benesch, Artistic and Intellectual Trends, p. 32.) Hofer, Baroque Book Illustrations 132. With an important provenance, collected by Pierre Mariette, second- generation in the family rm of one of the leading engravers, book publishers, and print sellers in 17th-Century Paris. When he bought the business from his father in 1657, it was valued at an astonishing 30,000 livres. His own prodigious stock and collection would pass through the hands of his son Jean, and grandson Jean-Pierre (who catalogued the Crozat collection, considered the rst modern descriptive catalogue). This lineage of experts had access to, and obtained, the nest Old Master prints and drawings in Europe, and their dispersal after Jean-Pierre 's death included the "Spencer Albums" of prints. They are to this day one of the most important acquisitions made by Harvard University. It is unknown when the present suite of Van Dyck's important portrait series left the Mariette family, and it is possible that it remained unbound into the Nineteenth Century, and that this is therefore its fi rst binding. Joseph Maberly described "Pierre Mariette... [as] an eminent collector and dealer about the middle of the seventeenth century. He was accustomed, whenever he happened to become possessed of an impression of more than ordinary beauty, to write his name in full, and a date, on the face of the print [as well as on the back], and although this is certainly a dis gurement, yet such is Pierre Mariette 's reputation for judgment, that to be thus dis gured, is no disparagement to a print, but the contrary" (Maberly, The Print Collector, An Introduction to the Knowledge Necessary for Forming a Collection of Ancient Prints, Edited by Robert Hoe, New York, 1880, p.81).

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

      London: N.p., 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.

        World map - Frederick de Wit, 1660.

      ?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 family both published their own atlases and supplied maps to other cartographers such as Hendrik Doncker.Reference: Rodney Shirley (1983)- ?The Mapping of the World: Early Printed World Maps 1472-1700?, p. 421, plate 311.Price: ?11.500,- (incl. frame).

        Lexicon Tetraglotton, An English-French-Italian-Spanish Dictionary: Whereunto is Adjoined a large Nomenclature of the proper Terms (in all the four) . . . With another Volume of the Choicest Proverbs in all the said Toungs. . .

      London: Printed by J.G. for Cornelius Bee, 1660. Rare First Edition of one of the most important works in the history of lexicography and a major source of the plagiarized proverbs Benjamin Franklin published in Poor Richard's Almanack. A fair copy. Ex-library: white numbers on spine, blindstamp, numbers and 'cancelled' stamp on title page, ghost of what was probably a pocket on the rear endpapers. Very old full-leather binding with 'Howell's Dictionary' on the title piece. Boards worn; corners extremely worn past leather to boards; boards once detached and now only reattached by several strips of cloth which are fairly loose. Ffep heavily chipped, with 1864 owner's name, reinforced at the foreedge. There is no half-title, first leaf is title page; two owner's names or notations, Anglesey Dec. 5 1663 and Stanford 1693. Obverse of title page blank; follows 3pp dedicatory 'To His Majesty Charles the Second'; another blank page is followed by the marvelous frontispiece which faces the introductory 'Poems by the Author.' A 6pp preface addressed 'to the tru Philologer' ends with a publisher's notice apologizing in advance for the inevitable errors in this first impression. There is some penciled marginalia in the preface and first few pages of the dictionary; there are also ink notes, much older, but nothing in the dictionary after the first 6 pages. Page 7 has piece torn from the foreedge with a few words lost. Text browning, few pages much more than most others, but everywhere legible. Dictionary followed by the phrasebook, with sections on anatomy, hunting, architecture, etc. Section on Navigation again has inked marginalia. The penciled underlines and check marks also appear occasionally. The first page of Section 50 of this part has a piece torn from foreedge, but no loss of words. The title page for this section (dated 1659) is bound in after the contents. The Proverbs or Paroimiographia section follows, also with a title page dated 1659. Apparently Franklin lifted proverbs from this section and published them in the same order (he was filling space in his Almanac and never intended or supposed that they would be ascribed to him). Full sub-title: Whereunto is Adjoined a large Nomenclature of the proper Terms (in all the four) belonging to several Arts and Sciences, to Recreations, to Professions both Liberal and Mechanick, &c. Divided into Fiftie Two Sections;With another Volume of the Choicest Proverbs in all the said Toungs, (consisting of diverse compleat Tomes) and the English translated into the other Three, to take off the reproach which useth to be cast upon Her, That She is but barren in this point, and those Proverbs She hath are both flat and empty. Moreover, There are sundry familiar Letters and Verses running in all Proverbs, with a particular Tome of the British or old Cambrian Sayed-Sawes and Adages, which the Author thought fit to annex hereunto, and make Intelligible, for their great Antiquity and Weight: Lastly, there are five Centuries of New Sayings, which, in tract of Time, may serve for Proverbs to Posterity..

        CAPRICCIOSI & PIACEUOLI RAGIONAMENTI, . IL VERITIERE E'L DIUINO, COGNOMINATO IL FLAGELLO DE' PRINCIPI . LA PUTTANA ERRANTE OVERO DIALOGO DI MADALENA E GIULIA.

      [Jean Elzevier], Stampati in Cosmopoli, [Leiden:] 1660 - THE EARLIEST SURVIVING PRINTED WORK OF PORNOGRAPHIC LITERATURE. THE NOTORIOUS PUTTANA ERRANTE. Octavo (153 × 95mm.), three parts in one, pp. 541, [3]; 54, [2]. A-2L8, Aa-Cc8, Dd4 (2L8 and Dd4 blank). Roman and italic type. Titles of first two parts, the Ragionamenti, with typographical ornaments; La Puttana Errante with half-title and title with no bibliographical information, small floriated woodcut initials, grotesque tail pieces, typographical ornaments. In fine contemporary vellum over thin paper boards, yapp edges. Very rare marginal spotting in places. Small cracks to upper joint. A fine copy, crisp and clean. FIRST EDITION, very rare and a fine copy, of the earliest surviving printed work of pornographic literature. "The first imaginative prose work that deals directly and exclusively with physical sexual satisfaction" (Foxon p. 27). THE TRUE FIRST EDITION Two separate editions of Aretino's Ragionamenti were published by the Elzevier press, both with a new text appended, the Puttana Errante. Willems convincingly argues in his lengthy descriptions of this work, that of the two separate editions, the first was printed at Leiden by Jean Elzevier, and the second was printed eight years later by Daniel Elzevier at Amsterdam. The first edition of La Puttana Errante, in 54 pages, was added at the end of some, but by no means all, copies of the first printing of the Ragionamenti. It was however clearly intended to be an integral part of the first edition as it is printed on identical paper, using the same type, with the same number of lines (31). The second edition of the Ragionamenti was set up nearly identically to the first, but the second edition of the Puttana Errante was reset in 38 pages. Willems resolved the priority between the two editions by comparing the type and ornaments, and concluded that the second edition must have been printed in 1668, as it appears in Daniel Elzevier's catalogue of 1674 with that date, which he believes was most probably the correct date of printing. The printing of the first edition is finer than the second ("La plus belle" - Willems), and is easily identified by the finer type, which uses an elongated form of the letter x. "La Puttana Errante, overo dialogo di Madalena e? Giulia claims to be by Aretino and follows the same dialogue form as the Ragionamenti in which the elder woman takes the greater share: but it is almost entirely devoted to Madalena's sexual autobiography as a thread on which to hang most of the possible positions for sexual intercourse. It is the first imaginative prose work which deals directly and exclusively with physical sexual satisfaction, though this is garnished rather sparsely with some moments of emotion and glimpses of ordinary life. It ends with a named catalogue of thirty-five postures, which explains why sets of plates became associated with it; it might originally have been written as an explanatory text to pictures, but its origins are obscure. Modern authorities all agree that it is not by Aretino, and the first edition under this title seems to be an undated Elzevir edition, printed to accompany a new edition of the Ragionamenti in 1660. The appearance in London of John Garfield's periodical The Wandering Whore at the end of 1660 tends to confirm that date, for evidence over the next hundred years shows a very brief time lag between a Continental publication and its English repercussion. Garfield's work had no connection with the text of La Puttana Errante: he was clearly cashing-in on a new and notorious title" (Foxon pp. 27-28). The influence of La Puttana Errante was enormous and the book seems to have been very widely read, including in England, although no 17th century English translation is known to have survived. "The earliest specific reference I know to a pornographic book [in England] is in Pepy's diary. On 13th January 1668 he 'stopped at . . .

        Russia antique map - Blaeu.

      Russiae, Vulgo Moscovia dictae, Pars OccidentalisMap of Russia with original hand colouring. Size 49,1 x 38,9 cm. Published by Joan Blaeu in Amsterdam around 1660, as part his world famous Atlas Maior.A finely engraved depiction of the area from Estonia to Moscow. The map is very decorative, with pictorial topography, wildlife and a scene of men hunting bears in the upper part of the map. The decorative cartouche is flanked with moose and reindeer. Also this map is based on the travel journal of Isaac Massa from 1610.Isaac Massa (1586 - 1643) was a Dutch grain trader, traveller and diplomat, the envoy to Muscovy, author of memoirs witnessing the Time of Troubles and the maps of Eastern Europe and Siberia. Massa's experience in and knowledge of Muscovy transformed him into a Dutch ?Kremlinologist??.Massa is credited with five published maps of Russia and its provinces, the last ones compiled around 1633, and two maps of Moscow city. Retrieving original muscovite maps could have been dangerous for Massa himself and fatal for his Russian sources. Massa's rendition of the Siberian coast represented an advance in geography and for decades remained the only map of this region. It was subsequently copied by Dutch publishers Gerard Mercator and Henricus Hondius, Jan Janssonius and Willem Blaeu.Blaeu's Atlas Major in its various editions was the largest atlas ever published. It was justly famed (?the greatest and finest atlas ever published?? - Koeman) for its production values, its high typographic standard, the quality of its engraving, ornamentation, binding and colouring. Blaeu?s atlas frequently served as the official gift of the Dutch Republic to princes and other authorities. It is one of the most lavish and highly prized of all seventeenth century illustrated books. The maps are embellished in the Baroque style, and many rank among the most beautiful ever made.Price (excl. VAT): ? 850,-.

        World map - Frederick de Wit, 1660.

      ?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 family both published their own atlases and supplied maps to other cartographers such as Hendrik Doncker.Reference: Rodney Shirley (1983)- ?The Mapping of the World: Early Printed World Maps 1472-1700?, p. 421, plate 311.Price: ?11.500,- (incl. frame).
