        De Laudibus Legum Angliae Written By Sir John Fortescue...

      1660. Selden's Edition of Fortescue's De Laudibus Fortescue, Sir John [1394?-1476?] [Selden, John (1584-1654), Editor]. [Mulcaster, Robert, Translator and Editor].

Dance 1748" and "Ashland 1850" to endleaves. An attractive copy. $1,000. * Second Selden edition. De Laudibus Legum Angliae, a history of English law, was written for the instruction of Edward, the young Prince of Wales. Cast in dialogue form, it demonstrates that the common law was the oldest and most reasonable legal system in Europe. It also compares the common and Roman systems and extols the superiority of a constitutionally limited monarchy. De Laudibus was written around 1470 and first printed in 1567. Selden's was the first critical edition of this work, perhaps the first critical editions of an early English legal work. Aside from their value to the elucidation of Fortescue's text, Selden's notes interrogate aspects of Fortescue's text and offer rich insights into jurisprudence and the nature of the English constitution. As noted by Christianson, his conclusions disputed "the concept of immemorial custom argued by [Sir John] Davies and the anachronistic historical interpretations displayed by [Sir Edward] Coke." First published in 1614, it was reissued in 1660, 1672 and 1737 with various additions. "Fortescue was a favorite among the old lawyers, and will be read with profit in modern times by those who are interested in the origin and progress of the Common La.

        Antique Master Print-LANDSCAPE-MAN WITH BUCKET AND DOG-H.60 II (3)-Waterloo-1660

      - Plate 6: Landscape with man with bucket on his back and dog (Hollstein 60, II(3). Lifetime impression. Watermark: 'IS': c. 1660-1680. Etching on a verge type hand laid paper. Description: 17th c. etchings of Antonie van Waterloo are scarse. It is assumed by experts that Cornelis Danckerts II acquired control of the waterloo plates as early 1655, so well during Waterloo's lifetime. As such most 17th. C. plates are published by Danckerts. The numbering of the plates also points to that. The plates later passed over to the Ottens family earliest 1717.Artists and Engravers: This plate was etched by the reknown Anthonie (Anthony) Waterloo. Although etched he is known to have added accents to his work by burin and other engraving techniques as well. Anthonie Waterloo (1609-1690) is born in Lille, but his family moved to Amsterdam probably to escape religious persecution. He was a painter and etcher and famous for his landscapes (136 items). He developed his own style, probably as an auto-didact. Although Waterloo traveled widely, many of his landscapes were probably imagined in the workshop and were influenced by the work of other landscapists. Condition: Very good. Excellent dark impression. General age related toning. With margins. Some remains of paper tape on rear from previous storing. This item has not been washed, cleaned, bleached, restored. Storage location: Q2-256 LA The overall size is ca. 6 x 5.4 inch. The image size is ca. 5.5 x 4.9 inch. The overall size is ca. 15.2 x 13.6 cm. The image size is ca. 14 x 12.5 cm.

        Hollands aeloude vryheid, buyten het stadhouderschap, by deszelfs eerste vorm van staats-bestier, door de eedelen en steeden verdeedigd, tegen velerhande dwingelandyen; tot na de dood van Willem de Derde, koning van Groot-Brittanië. [...] Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1706.

      [NL] Coll.: 4º: *-2*4 (*3 als A3) A-O4 P6 (-P5) Q-T4 V2, 2A-3F4, 3A-Y4, gepag.: [16] 156, 413 [3], 153 [23] pp. Met een gegraveerde titelpagina, een kopvignet boven de opdracht aan Wilhem de la Palma en 6 uitslaande platen (30 x 18 cm), alle door Romeyn de Hooghe. Ex.: Leer, geribde rug met titelschild, platten gemarmerd, hoeken beschadigd, verder goed exemplaar. 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. [EN] Coll.: 4º: *-2*4 (*3 als A3) A-O4 P6 (-P5) Q-T4 V2, 2A-3F4, 3A-Y4, gepag.: [16] 156, 413 [3], 153 [23] pp. with engraved title page and head-piece above the dedication to Wilhelm de la Palma and six folding plates (30 x 18 cm), by Romeyn de Hooghe. 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

He served as municipal secretary and court clerk in Langensalza (Thuringia) from 1619 to 1632, later entering the services of Duke Wilhelm IV and Duke Ernst I of Saxony-Gotha. The second album, which is bound dos-à-dos with the first, belongs to his son, Johann Günther Kirchberger (1628-1674), consistorial secretary in Gotha. In 1666 he married Elisabetha Sophia Marterseck, née. Glass. As the second album is dated "1650" on the cover, it is likely that Anton Günther Kirchberger was respondible for having this unique double friendship album bound: the leaves of the first album have been slightly trimmed by the binder (with insignificant losses to some letters near the edges). - Anton Günther's album is remarkable chiefly for the great number of Gießen scholars who count among the University's founding professors: the theologian Balthasar Mentzer (1565-1627), hailed as as "father of the University of Gießen", and the anatomist Gregor Horst (1578-1636), but also the classicist and Lutheran theologian Johann Debelius (1540-1610), the theologian Gregor Schönfeld the elder (1565-1627), Heinrich XVIII "the Read-Headed" Reuß zu Obergreiz (1563-1616; with coloured coat of arms), Johann Caspar Baron Schönburg-Penig (1594-1644; with coloured coat of arms), Johann Stephan Count Auersperg (1594-1620), Andreas III Baron Auersperg (1597-1632), the brothers Sigismund Friedrich Baron Herberstein (b. ca 1595) and Christoph Leopold Graf von Herberstein (1593-1667; with coloured coat of arms; a third member of the family, Georg Andreas von Herberstein, was previously unrecorded), and Simon Malfius (1585-1648), the statesman and chancellor of the Magdeburg Abbey, who had travelled 5000 miles in diplomatic capacities, including visits to Vienna and Denmark, and Ehrenreich von Weltzer (1589-1623), son of the like-named Ehrenreich Welzer (1560-1606) and nephew of the later commander of Vienna and Neustadt, Bernhard von Welzer (1573-1636). - Among the entries in the second album, that of Caspar Schmalkalden (1616-73) stands out: having visited South America and East India as a soldier in the Dutch army, he had authored an account of his journeys containing valuanle geographical and ethnological observations with descriptions of the flora and fauna. Schmalkalden's entry is decorated with a gifted ink sketch of two Chinese men in local costume, inscribed in Chinese. W.

        L'Occhiale all'Occhio. Dioptrica Pratica [...] Dove si tratta della Luce, della Refrattione de raggi, dell'Occhio, della Vista e degli aiuti, che dare si possono à gli occhi per vedere quasi l'impossibile. Dove in oltre si spiegano le regole pratiche di fabbricare Occhiali à tutte le viste, e Cannocchiali da osservare i pianeti, e le stelle fisse, da terra, da mare, et altri da ingrandire migliaia di volte i minimi de gli oggetti vicini.

      Bologna: per l'herede del Benacci, 1660. First and only edition of this important work on the making of lenses, spectacles, telescopes and microscopes, "the most comprehensive book on the subject" (Ilardi, p. 229). "Seventeenth-century account of dioptrics, dealing with light, refraction, the eye, vision, the invention of spectacles, the making of spectacles and telescopes. The book, which is essentially practical, aims at showing the optical worker how lenses are ground and how they may be used both to remedy visual defects and also for telescopes. The dedication ... is to Saint Lucia, the patron saint of the blind and those with diseased eyes" (British Optical Association Catalogue). "An important work in the history of optics, valuable as one of the earliest detailed accounts of methods of grinding and polishing lenses. A large number of fine woodcuts illustrate the machinery and processes described by the author" (Becker Catalogue). The first chapter contains an account of the invention of the telescope, and of Galileo's role in it, and also of the invention of spectacles. The following three chapters deal respectively with optics, the anatomy of the eye, and the mechanics of vision. The remaining ca. 200 pages are devoted to the manufacture of lenses, with extensive discussion of the different kinds of lenses required for various purposes, and the different methods of their design and manufacture. There are descriptions of the Murano glassworks, opticians' tables for the precise measurement of lenses, and illustrations of a lens grinder, glass-cutting shears, lathes and several optical instruments. The full-page portrait of Eustachio Divini, aged 49 years, bears an inscription stating that he is judged by scientists of optics to be the first to have fabricated large telescopes (occhialoni). As several of Divini's works are addressed to Manzini it is reasonable to suppose that this work documents in part Divini's discoveries. This is an unpressed copy on thick paper, bound in contemporary vellum, and with manuscript corrections in Manzini's hand - see, for example, the copy at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, which has the same corrections in the same hand as our copy (catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/009353165). Born of the Bolognese nobility, "Manzini established his own astronomical observatory on the grounds of his estates around Bologna and made his own telescopes, grinding the lenses for them himself ... Manzini's [book] was both a theoretical and practical compendium of what was known on optics and on the art of spectacle making from the fusion of glass and crystal to the fitting of glasses for various refractive errors and the insertion of precision lenses in telescopes and microscopes ... "In his preface, Manzini expressed his consternation in seeing the art of spectacle making being passed orally from one generation to the other without written instructions and often in strict secrecy so that much valuable information was lost forever. His book was designed to serve as a guide both in theoretical optics as developed by medieval authorities such as Alhacen (965-1040), Witelo (ca. 1230-80), [Roger] Bacon (1214/20-92) and by writers closer to his age such as Johannes Hevelius (1611-87), [Francesco] Maurolico (1494-1575), [Giambattista] della Porta (1535-1615), Christoph Scheiner (1573-1650), [Johannes] Kepler (1571-1630), Marin Mersenne (1588-1648) and [René] Descartes (1596-1650) among others, and in the actual shop practices followed by leading makers of scientific instruments, some of which he had helped to develop. He revealed that he had learned the first rudiments of hand-polishing lenses from a former mirror maker in Venice, Domenico Rambottino, a man without any education (huomo idiota affato) but very skilled in polishing lenses for telescopes, which he supplied throughout Italy and the New World (New Indies) (pp. 238-9). He received additional theoretical and practical instruction from some celebrated instrument makers of the age such as Francesco Fontana (1580-ca. 1656) in Naples, who brought the art to such a degree of perfection that he could rightly boast to be the most "sharp-eyes man from the creation of the universe to his time" (Preface). He reserved the highest praise for Eustachio Divini (1610-85) in Rome who rose above all others in the practice of this art, which can now be called "divine" (an allusion to his last name) because of his accomplishments (Preface). Even great Princes in Italy and elsewhere, he claimed, have not disdained to use their hands in this art through which men can now scan the skies and the stars and contemplate God's creation. And, he observed, "there are few in the world that would not need the benefits of this art before dying" (Preface). There could hardly be a more enthusiastic and eloquent celebration of the usefulness, dignity, nobility, and even "divine" function of the relatively new profession of optical scientist and practitioner. "The preface also emphasized the practical aspects of the art. Although Manzini distilled optical theory in his chapters on light and refraction for the benefit of those more skilled in mathematics, he advised other readers that these sections could safely be skipped, because they were not necessary to become "a perfect master" (maestro). They were advised instead to imitate Divini's career, whose portrait graces the frontispiece of his book. Divini, according to Manzini, had relied more on experience, ingenuity, and good judgment than on books to achieve his astounding results in making the best lenses and telescopes in Europe. He was, indeed, credited by his colleagues to be the "first to have perfected the making of telescopes" [Preface]. "Manzini's detailed and extensive description of lens grinding and polishing surpassed by far earlier treatments, including those published by Della Porta in his Magia naturalis (1589) and by Giovanni Sirtori in his Telescopium (1618). His exposition is based on these and other writings and above all on personal observation and practice as he consorted and worked with top-level masters of the art. It would be impossible to distill in a few sentences the complex steps of this process, which occupies the longest section of the book (pp. 199-263) ... For our purposes it is sufficient to identify the five stages in the production of lenses: making templates for the tools for grinding and polishing, producing the sets of tools for different focal lengths, the selection of the glass blanks, the grinding process and the polishing process. "The templates were made of metal (copper, steel, pewter, lead, and preferably brass) and were constructed in pairs, one convex, the other concave, of the same radius of curvature and each set was turned to a different focal length and labeled in feet as a measure of the focal length of the lens to be ground. The pairs in each set were ground against each other to ensure the accuracy of the surfaces of the lenses ... The templates were used to form the grinding tools themselves, also made in pairs. Metals were used for these tools, usually iron but preferably brass. The glass blanks were cut into disc shapes from a larger plate of glass, and several of them were fixed with cement to a convex tool or mallet, which was cemented in turn to a post for grinding. All the lenses were then ground at the same time against the tools by hand, using progressively finer sizes of washed emery to bring the lens surface to a semi-polished state. The final polishing was done on a concave cast iron shell covered with a heavy woolen cloth without its nap, which was pressed into place by working the corresponding convex brass tool on it. The pores of the cloth were then filled with enough tripoli (putty powder, calcined tin) to make its surface level. "Manzini advised that grinding and polishing of lenses was accomplished more precisely by hand than by machine. He wrote that he had never seen a lathe or machine capable of doing what the hand could despite the claims of inventors and mathematicians. He even added with a tinge of irony that he had seen one of these mathematicians/inventors, a non-Italian (Oltremontano) residing in a leading Italian city, working "many lenses" by hand "with extraordinary diligence and patience" [pp. 159-60]. But he was not a Luddite for his text is illustrated with various grinding/polishing machines, including one of his own improved lathes, which was superior to the lathe used by Ippolito Francini (1593-1653) (nicknamed Tordo), Galileo's skilled lens-maker. He stressed, however, the necessity that theory must be informed by practice for the production of excellent lenses following his own example by observing artisans and working with them. This experience had taught him that the final testing of the lenses be done by a person with keen eyesight, operating in a darkened chamber to observe objects at various distances through the lenses with the light being provided by candles, torches, or oil lamps (pp. 252-55) ... "From the marriage of theory and practice, Manzini evolved tables of specific ages requiring appropriate radii of curvature for spectacle lenses ... He distinguished six power degrees of lenses for various ages and for cataracts: 1. 40-50, known as "common vision" (vista commune); 2. 50-60; 3. 60-70; 4. 70-80; 5. Glasses for a half cataract; 6. Glasses for the entire cataract. As had been established two centuries earlier, he recognized two degrees of myopia - "weak and short vision" (viste deboli e viste corti). He cautioned, however, that these measures were averages for there were several "middle" degrees both for presbyopes and myopes and age alone was a very imprecise determining measure. It was necessary to try different models in spectacle shops [pp. 95-105]" (Ilardi, pp. 229-32). "The preface mentions a long list of authorities ... although few of them play any role in Manzini's directions for telescope making. Among the few that do, Kepler is by far the one most frequently cited. As we shall see, Manzini uses Kepler's theory in many ways and discovers in the Dioptrice (1611) results that seem to suggest to him new telescope designs. "For one thing, Manzini appeals to Kepler's authority to back well-known basic results of telescope making, as if they gained a new status by Kepler's demonstrations in the Dioptrice. This is the case for the claim that in Dutch telescopes lenses must stand as far apart as the focal distance of the convex objective lens or nearly; that the aperture must change according to the brightness of the observed object; or that objective lenses of great convexity require eye-pieces of great concavity. Contrariwise to what [Cherubin] d'Orleans does [in La dioptrique oculaire, 1671], Manzini never follows or repeats Kepler's geometrical arguments closely. However, he brings Kepler in when he wants to explain some relevant optical effect. For instance, he provides a qualitative, very general explanation of vision through telescopes with two or more convex lenses grounded on proposition 80 of the Dioptrice (the upright image of a visible thing seen through a convex lens is enlarged necessarily); Manzini uses it to explain why the combinations he sets forth will produce magnified vision. In another instance, he explains why astronomical telescopes have a wider field of view than Dutch telescopes do with references to Dioptrice's propositions 81 (in which Kepler links the distance of the eye to the focus of a convex lens to the field of view), 86 (which contains Kepler's account of the combination of two convex lenses) and 109 (where it is proved that in Dutch telescopes the concave ocular is always located very near the focus of the objective). In other instances, Manzini uses results from the Dioptrice to ground new rules of his invention. For instance, Manzini produces a table for Dutch telescopes that gives the recommended aperture size in relation to focal length. This is complemented by a new table that determines the best concavity of the ocular in relation to apertures. Manzini's calculations of concavities for ocular lenses involve a geometrical argument grounded on Kepler's theoretical understanding of the role of ocular lenses and on his law of refraction. In other instances, Manzini uses results from the Dioptrice to analyse instruments that Kepler never mentions. This is the case for the microscope (with one or more lenses), whose workings Manzini grounds on Kepler's proposition 37 in the Dioptrice. "Kepler's interest in 'cryptical' instruments [discussed in the last propositions of Dioptrice] lead him to explore the optical effects of new combinations of lenses. Manzini does not talk of 'cryptical' instruments, but suggests a vast array of new telescope designs in which three, four and even five lenses are combined, and whose optical properties Manzini knows in a qualitative general way thanks to Kepler's results about 'cryptical' instruments. He analyses first in some detail a variation upon the basic design of the Dutch telescope in which the tube is fitted with an additional convex lens whose convexity is about ¾ that of the main objective lens and which is located about half the length of the tube. Rules for fixing the ocular are to be obtained by trial and error. This design, says Manzini, comes from experience. Manzini reveals, however, that he knows in advance its main properties because they are foretold by two propositions Kepler devoted to 'cryptical' instruments. The instrument will be shorter, as demonstrated in the Dioptrice, proposition 135 (it shows how to make a working Dutch telescope whose objective is of small convexity but shorter than the focal distance of the objective lens), and it will magnify less, by proposition 125 (which proves that the contiguous application of two equally convex lenses halves their focal distance). On the other hand, experience shows that images are clearer and more distinct and the field of vision is wider. Manzini fills ten pages of his book (from page 177 to 186) with recipes which seem to originate in a combination of practical knowledge and general theoretical rules provided by Kepler's Dioptrice" (Malet, pp. 292-4). Little is known of Manzini's life. Born at Bologna on 5 October 1600, he graduated in philosophy at the city's University on 22 December 1625. A student of Giovanni Antonio Magini (1555-1617), he was a member of a group of Bolognese scientists who supported Galileo. In the first volume of his Almagestum novum (Bologna, 1651), Giovanni Battista Riccioli (1598-1671) praised Manzini's philosophical and scientific knowledge. He was in contact with many of the leading scientists of the time, including Mario Bettini (1582-1657) (with whom he performed some experiments), Bonaventura Cavalieri (1598-1647) (who was supported by Manzini in developing mathematics at the University of Bologna), and Divini. Two letters from Divini to to Manzini were published, Lettera di E. D. all' Sig. Conte C. A. Manzini. Si ragguaglia di un nuovo lavoro e componimento di lenti che servono à occhialoni ó semplici ó composti (1663) and Lettera di E. D. intorno alle macchie nuovamente scoperte nel mese di Luglio 1665 nel Pianeta di Giove con suoi cannocchiali (1666). In addition to the present work, Manzini published Tabulae primi mobilis (1626), which presented tables for the construction of astrological charts, Stella Gonzaga sive geographica ad terrarum orbis ambitum, et meridianorum differentias (1654), containing his proposal for an improved method of measuring the earth, and Le comete discorso (1665), an account of his observations of the spectacular comets of 1664 and 1665. He died at Bologna in 1677. Albert et al 1475; BL/STC 17th-century Italian Books II, p. 530; BOA p. 137; Becker 153; NLM/Krivatsy 7389; Riccardi II 96; Wellcome IV, p. 48.

        La carta del navegar pitoresco dialogo tra un Senator venetian deletante, e un professor de Pitura, soto nome d'Ecelenza, e de Compare. Compartì in oto venti con i quali la Nave venetiana vien conduta in l'alto Mar dela Pitura, come assoluta dominante de quelo a confusion de chi non intende el bossolo dela calamita. Opera de Marco Boschini. Con i argumenti del volenteroso Academico Delfico. Consagrà all'Altezza Imperial de Leopoldo Guglielmo, Arciduca d'Austria

      Venice: Baba, 1660 4to (203x150 mm); contemporary vellum, gilt center- and corner-pieces framed by a gilt double fillet on the panels, flat spine with gilt decorations and title (the title is also repeated in ink), gilt and gauffred edges (ties missing); [24], 680 [i.e. 682], [10] pp. Pages 638-639 repeated in numbering. With frontispiece, author's portrait (after a drawing by Pietro Bellotto) and 25 full-page illustrations, all engraved by Boschini. Small hole in the last three leaves that slightly affects the text, some insignificant stains on a few leaves, otherwise a beautiful copy in a magnificent contemporary binding.RARE FIRST EDITION of this poem in Venetian dialect made of 5370 quatrains, divided into 8 cantos, called "Venti" ('Winds'), according to the methaphor of the ship navigating in painting.The work is written in the form of a dialogue between a Venetian senator (probably Giovanni Nani) and an expert of painting (Boschini himself). The two interlocutors walk through the Venetian calli, and the "Professor de Pitura" explains with great competence to the senator the style of each work of art they see on their way; demonstates the superiority of the Venetian painting over the Florentine; compares painting to music and poetry; and even recalls olfactory and food suggestions in a style that is Baroque and redundant, but also brilliant and witty at the same time (cfr. M.F. Merling, Marco Boschini's "La carta del navegar pitoresco": Art Theory and Virtuoso Culture in Seventeenth-Century Venice, Ph.D. Diss., Brown University, 1992, passim).The first chapter includes a general introduction on the main painters of the 17th century, like Velazquez, Rubens, etc. In the following chapters Boschini guides his companion and the reader through the Venetian art, starting with the San Rocco School painted by Tintoretto. Particularly interesting are the detailed information concerning the private collections of the time (cf. J. Schlosser Magnino, La letteratura artistica, Florence, 1967, pp. 547-548 e 561).In his Carta del navegar pitoresco Boschini did not limit his explanations only to the technical aspects and to his experience as a fine connoisseur of the manner of each painter, but used all means to put into words and convey to the reader the emotions suggested by the masterpieces he describes (cf. M. Muraro, Boschini, Marco, in: "Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani", XIII, 1971, pp. 201-201).The final chapter contains a modern gallery of painters, for each of which, instead of the portrait, a significant painting is reproduced.Marco Boschini was born in Venice, the town where he lived most of his life. A pupil of Palma il Giovane and Odoardo Fialetti, he mainly painted works copied from major artists and produced a vast amount of drawings and engravings, made especially to illustrate his printed books. His fame, however, today as then, is related to his deep knowledge of the Venetian painting. He was the artistic consultant for many major collectors of the time, but his most important "customer" was Cardinal Leopoldo de' Medici. The latter was the founder of the Accademia del Cimento and gathered over the years an impressive collection of paintings, appointing Filippo Baldinucci as responsible for the Tuscan school, Malvasia for the Bolognese, and Boschini for the Venetian. His collection, which then became the core of the Vienna Museum of Art, is widely described by Boschini in the present work ("Vento" I, p. 39 ff.). Boschini used to accompany as an artistic guide important visitors and foreign artists. He also printed several other works on the Venetian painting and cartography, like Funeral fato de la pitura veneziana (1663), Le miniere della pittura (1664 and 1674), Il regno tutto di Candia delineato a parte a parte, et intagliato (1651) and L'arcipelago con tutte le isole... (1658) (cf. A. Pallucchini, Vita, in: M. Boschini, "La carta del navegar pitoresco.

        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 ".
