Robert Dudley's principal work was the Dell Arcano del Mare which was first published in Florence in 1646; the second edition was in 1661. It was the first sea atlas in which every chart was based on Mercator's projection, the first to show prevailing winds and currents in the main harbours and anchorages, and the first to give magnetic declination. It is also the first sea atlas by an Englishman and is extremely rare. Dell Arcano del Mare.

        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). The act is particularly scarce on its own, being recorded in ESTC in two separate states in a total of three locations (BL, Folger, and St John’s, Oxford), while the full collection is not common, with seven UK locations (not including the BL or Bodleian) and three in the USA. Other institutions hold parts or made-up sets, including the NYPL and the BL. (ESTC R475122)

      London: Printed by John Bill and Christopher Barker, 1660.. Broadside, 13 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches. Affixed at corners to a slightly larger sheet. Near fine. Archivally matted, protected with mylar sheet. An early diplomatic proclamation by the recently restored British monarch, King Charles II, and part of his efforts to encourage British colonial and commercial expansion. Though not formally at war, hostilities existed between Britain and Spain, especially concerning the harassment of commerce at sea and colonies in the Caribbean. Five years earlier, the English under Cromwell had seized Jamaica from Spain, and in 1656, Spain lent their support to Charles II's restoration to the throne. In this document Charles II proclaims that "all prisoners, ships, goods, merchandize [sic], or whatsoever else taken upon one another, either by any of our subjects, or the subjects of our said dear brother, since said time of our arrival in England, be, and shall be, upon due proof thereof, redelivered and restored." At the same time, Charles II was negotiating with the Portuguese against Spanish interests in the New World, especially with regard to Jamaica, which the British ultimately retained. WING C3287.

Beschrieben werden Edelsteine, Alchemie, Destillierkunst, Uhren (darunter Sonnen- und Wasseruhren), Theater, Turniere, Bibliotheken, Musik, Pferde u. a. Im zweiten Teil ein langes Einleitungskapitel über Amerika, wichtig wegen der Bemerkungen über die Verwendung der Bezeichnung Novus orbis - Neue Welt. Verfasst von Guido Panciroli (1523-99), der Professor der Rechtswissenschaft in Turin und Padua als auch fruchtbarer Schriftsteller war. " einer Aufforderung des Herzogs Karl Emmanuel zu genügen, und zwar zwischen 1580 und 1582, verfasste P. zwei Bücher rerum memorabilium, in deren erstem er von den den Alten bekannten, aber untergegangen Kunstfertigkeiten, im zweiten aber von den Entdeckungen handelte, welche wir ausschließlich der neueren Zeit verdanken. Abschriften dieses italienisch geschriebenen Buches verbreiteten sich mehrfach; eine derselben kam 1596 durch Camerarius an Salmuth, welcher es, in das Lateinische übersetzt und mit Anmerkungen begleitet, zu Amberg in der Oberpfalz 1599 in Octav herausgegeben. Später oft wieder abgedruckt...hat dies Büchlein auch spätern Curiositätensammlungen ähnlicher Art zur Grundlage dienen müssen." (vgl. dazu: Ersch, Allgemeine Encyclopädie der Wissenschaften und Künste. S. 311). - Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist zugleich ein interessantes Dokument für die Geschichte des Buchdrucks, da die Figurenbordüre des Titels im unteren Bereich eine Druckerei-Szene mit einem so genannten Anagnostes (Vorleser) zeigt und als Beweis für dessen wirkliche Existenz angeführt wird. "This new evidence consisted in a plate found in one of the editions of Panciroli's work mentioned above, representing the interior of a Frankfort printing-office in the year 1660, as indicated by the Roman numerals at the head. M. Madden points out, that in the background are two compositors at work without copy or copyholder (visorium), and explains this by the presence in the right hand top corner of a figure holding a manuscript, which, M. Madden assumes, he is reading aloud to the compositors ..." (Bigmore/Wyman II, 112 ausführl.).

        Trutz Nachtigal. 7 Bl., 317 S., 1 Bl. Mit Kupfertitel und 24 gestoch. Notentafeln. Pergamentbd d. Z. (etwas gedunkelt) mit handschriftl. Rückentitel und zwei intakten Messingschließen.

      Köln, Wilhelm Friessem, 1660.. . Dritte Ausgabe des Gedichtzyklus' Spees, zuerst 1649 erschienen, die letzte mit dem Kupfertitel. Die Sammlung gehört zu dem Besten, was je die geistliche lyrische Poesie hervorgebracht hat. Für die starke Nachwirkung und Verbreitung sprechen zwei Übersetzungen und zahlreiche Auflagen der 'Trutz-Nachtigal' bis zum Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts sowie die Neuausgabe durch Clemens Brentano im Jahr 1817. Ferner gingen 5 Lieder in 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn' ein. Nicht ohne Selbstbewusstsein sagt der Dichter in der Vorrede, dass das Büchlein "trutz allen Nachtigalen süß, und lieblich singe, und zwar auffrichtig Poetisch: also daß es sich auch wohl bey sehr guten lateinischen und anderen Poeten dörfft hören lassen." Die Unabhängigkeit von Opitz ist bemerkenswert. Dazu bemerkt Lipphardt: "Indem Spee 'einer lieblichen Teutschen Poetica' als erster 'die Bahn zeigte', wurde er der Begründer einer neuen Form des deutschen Kirchenliedes und in seiner 'Trutz-Nachtigal' des deutschen geistlichen Sololiedes." Alle 24 Lieder für Singstimme mit beziffertem Bass sind beigegeben. Als Komponist wird Jacob Gippenbusch vermutet. - Durchgehend leicht gebräunt. Der Kupfertitel im Außenrand leicht fransig, eine Fehlstelle im weißen Rand alt hinterlegt (Darstellung nicht berührt). Gutes Exemplar. - Dünnhaupt 3.3. Eitner IX 220. Sommervogel VII 1428. Vgl.

      London: Henry Hills and John Field, 1660 (NT); [London: Bill & Barker, 1662] (BCP); 1661 (Psalms). (BINDING) 8vo. Woodcut of the Royal Arms of Charles II on verso of final leaf of the Common Prayer. Contemporary black morocco "sombre" binding, elaborately tooled in blind on upper and lower covers with a central lozenge cartouche made from double impressions of two separate tools, the same tools being used to decorate the four corners, the design surrounded by floral sprays, spine of six raised banks with floral tooling in each of the seven compartments, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Front joint repaired, skillful minor restoration to the corners by Sotheran, overall a very attractive binding. Lacks first three leaves of Book of Common Prayer. Herbert 669 or 670 (with OT); Griffiths 1662-1663.3 . A handsome volume, made even more interesting by the contemporary ownership inscription "Elizabeth Maynard 1663" on the verso of the New Testament title page, and, in her handwriting on the blank recto of the Psalms, "What Children I have christened [there follows a list of nine names] Innocents day 1665" plus additional notations of subsequent christenings in 1665 and 1667. As the "Children" included a Mrs Cooper, it may be that the word is used in an ecclesiastical sense; and it is interesting to conjecture what role Elizabeth Maynard played in the ceremony in these years following the Restoration of 1660

        Traum Geschicht von Dir und Mir. 103 S. incl. gestoch. Titel von A. Frölich. 12°. Kalblederbd (um 1900, vordergelenk schwach) mit Rückenfilete.

      Ohne Ort und Druck, (1660).. . Sehr seltene zweite (?) Ausgabe dieser interessanten Traumschrift, die seit ihrer Aufnahme in die erste Gesamtausgabe von Grimmelshausens Schriften diesem zugeschrieben wurde. Als ihr Verfasser gilt jetzt Balthasar Venator (1594-1664). "Sie stellt eine Satire auf Hof-, Kleider- u. Tischsitten dar und muß als wichtige Grimmelshausen-Quelle angesehen werden. Aus dieser Vorlage übernahm Grimmelshausen das Motiv des Mannes, der träumt, daß er schwanger sei, und benützt es als verbindende Klammer, die die drei Werke, Simplizissimus, Courasche und Springinsfed zu einer Einheit zusammenschließt" (Seebass/Kistner I 367). Noch der renommierte Grimmelshausen-Forscher Scholte hielt die 'Traum Geschicht' für ein Werk Grimmelshausens, das viel Persönliches enthalte und in der Forschung bisher zu wenig beachtet worden sei. - Kupfertitel knapp beschnitten, letzte Blatt mit Wasserrand. Seit über 60 Jahren nur 2 Exemplare im Handel nachweisbar. - VD17 23:299077D. Dünnhaupt F 1.2 (unter Grimmelshausen, ohne Kollation und Standortnachweis). Vgl. Faber du Faur 1150 (kein Kupfertitel, Drucktitel umfangreicher und mit offener Jahreszahl) und Goed. III 251, 2 ('Traumgesichte', offene Jahreszahl), beide unter Grimmelshausen.

        La Conférence de Ianot et Piarot Doucet de Villenoce, & de Iaco Paquet de Pantin, sur les grandes magnificences qu'on prépare à Paris, pour l'entrée de la Reyne.

      Paris, s.n. 1660 - in-4, 8 pp., vélin souple, dos lisse muet (reliure moderne). Bon exemplaire. Curieuse pièce en parler populaire parisien : il s'agit d'un dialogue entre trois rustres sur l'entrée solennelle de Marie-Thérèse à Paris en 1660. Elle fut si répandue que Madame de Sévigné y fait allusion dans une lettre à Bussy-Rabutin du 18 mars 1678. Quoique très décalée dans le temps par rapport à ses devancières, elle se rattache à la série des six premières "conférences" truculentes, publiées pendant la Fronde et qui mettaient en scène le dialogue de deux paysans de la banlieue (Saint-Ouen et Montmorency) déplorant le malheur des temps. Les cinq premières étaient parues pendant l'hiver 1649, et la sixième en février 1651 ; suivirent quatre imitations, publiées de 1652 à 1660, dont notre pièce fait partie. Or, l'importance de cette production anonyme fut considérable à l'époque : c'est du parler de Ianot et Piarot que Molière tira ses touches de patois parisien mises dans la bouche des gens du peuple de ses pièces, et, par ce biais, ce parler connut une reprise et une consécration théâtrales jusqu'à la Révolution au moins. En revanche, leur anonymat, la confusion facile qu'on en a pu faire avec de simples mazarinades, ainsi que la disparition effective du vrai parler parisien au cours du XVIIIe siècle les ont condamnées à un oubli profond tant de la part des historiens (leur apport événementiel est mince, sinon nul) que de celle des historiens de la littérature (leur lecture et leur interprétation exacte sont très malaisées, et des hommes comme Nisard ou même Dauzat ont accumulé les contresens à leur sujet). Cf. Deloffre (Frédéric) : Burlesques et paysanneries. Etude sur l'introduction du patois parisien dans la littérature française du XVIIe siècle (1956). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
