        Rerum memorabilium sive deperditarum. Edited by Heinrich Salmuth

      Frankfurt: 1660. 4to (219 x 173 mm). 2 parts in one, [8], 349, [23]; 313, [17] pp. Engraved title to part I [after Sebastian Furck], double column. Neat small repair to title, small hole in f3 costing a few letters, occasional slight browning intrinsic to paper; but overall fresh condition. Contemporary ivory vellum over pasteboard, title gold lettered on spine, edges red-sprinkled. Provenance: Duke August of Brunswick-Lüneburg, bookplate and printed shelf number 57; Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel, library and withdrawal stamps on verso of title.*** A handsome copy of Panciroli?'s encyclopedic history of ancient and modern arts and technology. First published at Amberg in 1599-1602, Salmuth?'s Latin edition was a ?"surreptitious?" translation, with extensive commentary, of the author's Raccolta di alcune cose più segnalate… which circulated at the time in manuscript. No fewer than four separate issues are recorded by VD-17 under this imprint and date; all reprint Schoenwetter?'s 1631 edition, but only one (39:160841F) bears the original engraved title by Sebastian Furck used in previous editions; the other three issues, including this one, have exact copies of the engraving. Part I treats the arts and techniques of antiquity, including papyrus, roads, statues, libraries, labyrinths, the pyramids, tombs, obelisks, dress and accessories such as the fibula, wine, slavery, Roman writing and writing surfaces, equitation, hunting and food production, and the performing arts, including music, musica muta (pantomime), and stagecraft. Part II, on inventions unknown to the ancients, opens with a long section on the New World, discussing its discovery, the effects of the encounter on the natives (venereal disease tops the list), American crops and products including sassafras, plantains, and many other fruits and herbs, with their uses by the Native Americans. Other sections are devoted to the history of printing in China and Europe (an addendum by Salmuth provides ?"the true history?" of Gutenberg?'s invention, from the evidence contained in the Helmasperger Notarial Instrument), papermaking, sugar, alchemy, porcelain, time-pieces, bells, ciphers and codes, glasses, silk-weaving, tournaments and jousts, and watermills. "Pancirollo?'s work is interesting, not only as giving some notion of the state of knowledge as to the history of invention in his time, but as displaying the attitude of scholars towards the practical arts of the ancients" (Ferguson). VD 17 12:650784G; Ferguson, Books of Secrets, II, pp. 33 & 58; Sabin 58412. Other editions: Brunet, IV, 339; Cicognara 1745; Bigmore & Wyman II:112-13 (discussing the printing scene in lower border of engraved title).

        Guinea. "Guinea

      Africa: Amsterdam Schenk, Petri & Valk Gerardi c1700. Copper engraved map of Guinea, West Africa after Janssonius from Schenk and Valk's " Atlas Contractus." Original full wash colour; verso blank. The map after Jansonnius shows the coast of West Africa from Sierra Leone to Gabon, focused upon Guinea and Benin; numerous elephants, lions and monkeys within the land; ships, monsters and compass roses to sea. Decorative title cartouche surmounted by natives and monkeys; 2 black putti bear an elephant tusk above the sea at bottom left corner. Good impression with bright colour; worm track to upper centre fold in blank margin with old paper repair to verso, not entering image. The maps of Schenk and Valk are famous for their full wash colour , however often the pigments, particularly in the greens deteriorated leading to browning and eventually could cause the paper to crack, for this reason it is unusual to see such bright original colour. SCHENCK, Pieter 1660-1718/9 Dutch mapmaker and publisher. Born in Elberfeld, Germany in 1660. Moved to Amsterdam in 1683 where he became a pupil of Gerard Valck, later in 1687 he married Agatha Valck, sister of his associate., thus uniting two great families. In 1686 he is noted in a privilege granted to Petrus Schenck and Gerardus Valck for the printing & sale of their prints. The Valck and Schenk families where active as print sellers, publishers and printers of maps, atlases and architectural drawings as well globes. They accquired plates from the stock of Johannes Janssonius and also of Visscher reissuing several maps of Janssonius' "Atlas Novus "from 1683-94 and published an Atlas titled" Nova totius Geographia" in 1702. The best known of the joint Pieter Schenk & Gerard Valck publications were the second edition of Andreas Cellarius's " Celestial Atlas Harmonia Macrocosmica'" 1708 and an edition of Jan Jansson's "Novus Atlas" entitled the "Atlas Anglois" published in London by David Mortier in 1715. Pieter Schenck the Elder's earliest cartographic productions were a number of maps after Nicolas Sanson published in a composite Atlas, "Atlas Contractus or Atlas Minor" c.1696. He also published a further composite Atlas, "Atlantis sylloge compendiosa," c.1702. Other works included his famous Atlas of one hundred town views," Hecatompolis" [1702];" Le Theatre de Mars "[1706]; and the "Schouwburg van der Oorlog" [1706].

Ridolfo Aquaviva. Composta dal medesimo autore. Roma, Stamperia del Varese, 1667?". "Mancano 2 cc." (pp. 139/142), qui riprodotte su carta antica. Cfr. Gamba,1773: ?"l?'edizione di Roma, 1667, viene preferita all?'ediz. orig. del 1653 perchè contiene anche, dopo gli VIII libri della Storia, la "Missione del Gran Mogor" che manca nella prima?". - "Il Giappone".

Parte dell?'Europa. Roma, Stamp. Varese,1667. "Edizione originale": 4 cc.nn., 620 pp.num. "Mancano 5 cc. finali": avviso al lettore e Indice, qui riprodotte su carta antica. - "L?'Italia".

De Backer ?"Bibliogr. des écrivains de la Compagnie de Jésu?",II, p. 54: ?"Cest dans la première partie de l?'Asie que Bartoli traite amplement la vie de S.

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.) Con uniformi arross. più o meno lievi, qualche fiorit. e alone, ma complessivam. un discreto esemplare. P.a.r.

        A Treatise of Gavelkind, Both Name and Thing. Shewing the True

      1660. Historic Study of Gavelkind Somner, William [1598-1669]. A Treatise of Gavelkind, Both Name and Thing. Shewing the True Etymologie and Derivation of the One, the Nature, Antiquity, and Original of the Other. With Sundry Emergent Observations, Both Pleasant and Profitable to be Known of Kenting-Men and Others, Especially Such as Are Studious, Either of the Ancient Custome, Or the Common Law of This Kingdome. By (A Well-Wisher to Both). London: Printed by R. and W. Leybourn, 1660. [xxiv], 216 [8] pp. Quarto (7" x 5-1/2"). Nineteenth-century three-quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Light rubbing to boards, some wear to extremities, joints just starting at ends, front hinge cracked but secure, rear hinge starting, title page partially detached but secure. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, occasional light foxing. An attractive copy overall. * First edition, second issue. Gavelkind is a form of land tenure unique to Kent (and its environs) in which land descends equally to the decedent's sons. It was common during the Saxon era, but was gradually supplanted by primogeniture after 1066. Produced during the first wave of modern English legal scholarship, Somner's pioneering work was the first study of gavelkind, and one of the first important studies of early English law. Philological in orientation, it is a history of gavelkind and an analysis of its forms. Texts of significant documents are included. He also goes beyond his subject in one section to discuss the law of succession to chattels. Somner, a pupil of Causubon, was an ecclesiastical lawyer and historian of Anglo-Saxon law and literature who is best known for his pioneering Saxon-Latin-English dictionary (1659).

A handsome print by this eminent French designer and engraver, Gabriel Perelle (1604-1677) engraved work after other masters as well as engraving his own designs as in this instance. He frequently embellished his compositions with imaginary ruins and other objects and thus presented the viewer with utopian landscapes of the mind.

        Variae multiformes florum species appressae ad vivium et aeneis tabulis incisae. Diverses fleurs dessinees et gravees d'apres le naturel,.

      Paris, F. Poilly excudit, rüe St. Jacques alimage St. Benoist, (1660?). Small folio (325 x 240mm). Engraved title and 30 engraved plates of plants. 19th century boards, some slight paper discoloration, small ink spot on one plate. First edition, most probably a later and better impression, of the same plates, printed on heavier paper. Hunt mentions such an issue without giving a date. //Nicolas Robert (1614-1685) was one of the outstanding flower painters of the 17th century. "In comparison to Fiori diversi, produced by the same artist twenty years earlier in Rome, 'Variae ac multiformes florum species', or 'Diverses fleurs', clearly shows Robert's mastery of the problems of technique and composition. The earlier plates are characterized by a certain harshness of line, the flowers standing out starkly against the page. In this later work Robert made much more creative use of the various elements at his disposal, incorporating the stem and leaves of the plants in sophisticated compositions that anticipate the quintessentially Baroque motif of the formal flower bouquet. Butterflies and other insects are also much more numerous than in the artist's previous work" (An Oak Spring Flora, 42). //"Maria Sibylla Merian copied a number of different motifs from Robert's work in the first part of her 'Blumenbuch'" (Maria Sibylla Merian 1647-1717, Artist and naturalist, ed. by K. Wettengl cat. no. 31). //An Oak Spring Flora 42; Hunt 282; Nissen BBI, 1645.

        Verhael van de reys ende 't vertoeven van den seer doorluchtige ende machtige prins Carel de II, Koning van Groot Britannien

      Adriaen Pietersz van de Venne 1660 - This is one engraving from a larger work. Adriaen Pietersz van de Venne (1589-1662) (after); Pierre Philippe (d. 1664) (engraver); [Charles II Setting Sail from Scheveningen] from Verhael.van de reys ende 't vertoeven van den seer doorluchtige ende machtige prins Carel de II, Koning van Groot Britannien. [A Journal of the Voyage of King Charles II of Great Britain]. Engraving, uncolored; 12 x 15 inches, plate mark. Lively engraving depicting the triumphal departure of Charles II of Scotland from the Netherlands on his way back to England to reclaim the British throne after 11 years in exile abroad. A crowd has gathered at the harbor of Scheveningen to see him off. In the sky are winged gods and putti holding crowns and the seal of Great Britain, beneath a ribbon bearing the Latin motto, "Quo fas et fata nos vocant" ("where duty and the fates call"). The engraving is one of six originally published in an account of Charles's journey from Breda to Scheveningen from May 25 to June 2, 1660, with stops along the way to meet with the Dutch monarch and address the Parliament. King Charles I's (1600-1649) mismanagement of religious and economic affairs in England and Scotland forced a showdown with the English Parliament, which culminated in civil war and the king's execution on January 30, 1649. His son, Charles II of Scotland, tried to reclaim the throne in 1651. When his forces were defeated by the English army, he escaped to exile in France, and after an 11-year period in which no monarch ruled England, he was asked by Parliament to return. In 1660 he became king. Adriaen van de Venne was a Dutch painter, draftsman and poet. Largely self-taught, his early influences were the Flemish artists Jan Brueghel the Elder and Pieter Brueghel the Elder. He developed a distinctive style based on Dutch idioms, and was a sought-after book illustrator by Holland's leading writers, helping to popularize the "emblem book" in which pictures illustrated sayings to present moral lessons. He also was known for his prints and grisaille paintings. After moving to The Hague in 1625, he was probably employed at court, and became dean of the Guild of Saint Luke in 1640. Pierre Philippe was a Dutch engraver who lived in The Hague. He is best known for his illustrations for a two-volume edition of the works of Ovid, published in Leiden in 1662, and for Guarini's Pastor Fido in 1663. Full title of original work for which this engraving was made: Verhael in forme van Journael, van de reys ende 't vertoeven van den seer doorluchtige ende machtige prins Carel de II, Koning van Groot Britannien. Condition: Recently professionally cleaned, deacidified, and flattened, with only minor remaining toning, soft creases, and signs of wear. Some printers creases, as issued.

        Anno Regni Caroli II. Duodecimo. At the Parliament begun at Westminster the Five and twentieth day of April, An. Dom. 1660. [drop-head title:] An Act for Prohibiting the Planting, Setting, or Sowing of Tobacco in England and Ireland.

      Printed by John Bill 1660 - lightly browned, a small splotch of worming to lower blank corner, pp. [iii], 126-128, sm. folio, disbound James I, Charles I, and the interregnum Parliament had all tried to tax locally grown tobacco heavily enough to discourage its production; an act of 1652 finally banned the crop, since the taxes had merely encouraged evasion. To ensure the protection revenues coming from taxation of Virginian imports after the Restoration, this act renewed the earlier ban, apart from small quantities in medical gardens. (Demand had also increased, since Charles II brought over the French court’s habit of taking snuff.) A proclamation of the ban was issued the following year.As with all such parliamentary records this was issued both on its own (hence the title-page) and as part of a collection of acts (hence the pagination - ESTC R233776).
