Monck George
London 1660 - 699, Heavily browned. On verso of title page is long statement, well written but not readable by me. Top corner of p3,4 torn with loss of a few letters. Order to print is on title page, The years are given according to Lady Day dating. Wing A867. Cromwell had died in Sept 1658. He felt Richard Cromwell, the oldest surviving son of Cromwell, was incompetent. He bided his time and then left Edinburgh with his army in January 1660.Monck entered London in February 1660 and by this speech and declaration, he allowed the Presbyterian members, secluded in Pride's Purge of 1648, to re-enter parliament on 21 February 1660 on the condition that the restored Long Parliament would agree to dissolve themselves once general elections had been held. In this speech, Monck directly and clearly tells Parliament that the finding of Peace and a happy settlement is in their hands. Monck might have declared himself Protector, but cautious and wise to the end, he sought a solution. Monck was in communication with Charles II; he accepted the latter's Declaration of Breda of 4 April 1660, which was largely based on Monck's recommendations. It offered reconciliation and forgiveness. Charles promised a general pardon for crimes committed during the English Civil War and the Interregnum for all those who recognised Charles as the lawful king; the retention by the current owners of property purchased during the same period; religious toleration; and the payment of pay arrears to members of the army, and that the army would be recommissioned into service under the crown.

The De infinitorum spiralium is devoted to the areas of the figures bounded by arcs of these curves and to the centers of gravity of the figures themselves». Rare first edition. With numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. Unimportant mild browning on a few leaves, but a good copy in contemp. vellum.

PORTRÄTS: ANTIKE HELDEN:
Kupferstiche v. Gregorius Frentzel n. Marten de Vos b. Paulus Fürst, um 1660, 21,5 x 25,2 Blattgr. 38,8 x 32 (ca. je Blatt) Dresden, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen ( ohne Datierung ). - Außerordentlich seltene und vollständige Folge von 4 Blättern, die 1600 von Adrian Collaert nach Marten de Vos das erste Mal gestochen wurden. 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. Christoph Maucher (1642-nach1705) schnitt nach diesen Vorlagen Bernsteintafeln, die in einen Stuhl eingearbeitet wurden, den der brandenburgische Kurfürst Friedrich Wilhelm I. an Kaiser Leopold I. schenkte. - Die "Collaert"- Folge wurde dann 60 Jahre später von dem Nürnberger Verleger Paulus Fürst noch einmal herausgegeben (1660), diesmal mit deutschen Versen unterlegt und von Greogorius Frentzel gestochen. - Alle Darstellungen zeigen Feldherrn mit Standarten zu Pferde über ihren besiegten Gegnern. Die Stadtansichten im Hintergrund sind immer mit Fabeltieren ( Monstern) am oder im Wasser dargestellt. Blatt 1: Im breiten Rand fleckig, mit ein und Ausrissen, weit außerhalb des Plattenrandes, kleines Loch hinterlegt unten links. Blatt 2: kaum sichtbare, kleine Risser unten rechts in der Darstellung (hinterlegt), Quetschfalten vom Druck. Blatt 3: einwandfrei. Blatt 4: im breiten Rand fleckig und mit kleinen randlichen Läsuren. Wasserzeichen "Stab mit Schlange (MM)". Sicherlich ein Rarissmum der Ikonographie.

NEVELET (Isaac Nicolas).
Francfort Gerlach, Beckenstein 1660 1Francfort, Gerlach, Beckenstein, 1660. In-8 à deux colonnes de (16)-678 pp., vélin rigide, titre manuscrit à l'encre brune sur le dos lisse (reliure de l'époque). Deuxième édition greco-latine publiée sous un nouveau titre, illustrée de 255 bois gravés dans le texte d'après Virgil Solis. Anthologie établie par Isaac Nevelet des principaux fabulistes de l'Antiquité tardive et du Moyen Âge publiée une première fois en 1610 sous le titre Mythologia aesopica. C'est le recueil fabuliste le plus riche du XVIIe siècle (822 fables) consulté par Jean de La Fontaine, qui présente les fables et la vie d'Esope en ses deux versions grecque et latine, en regard et sur la même page. À côté des traditionnels Phèdre, Babrios et Avian, le recueil comporte les fables du rétheur grec Aphtonius (vers 400), les fables d'un anonyme, source essentielle pour le Moyen Âge, les fables de Laurentius Abstenius (Lorenzo Bevilacqua) parues la première fois de 1495 à 1505. Les figures sont reprises de l'édition Feyerabend 1566 des fables d'Esope illustrée par le graveur allemand Virgil Solis (1514-1562). Feuillets roussis, tache d'encre à la page 167. Provenance Charles Nodier avec son ex-libris "Ex Musaeo Caroli Nodier". Dans la Description raisonnée d'une jolie description de livres (n°761), Nodier souligne : « Bon exemplaire d'une édition recherchée qui avait déjà paru en 1610, et qui n'a subi d'autre changement ici que celui du frontispice ». Brunet I, 86 ; Fabula docet, n°38 ; Catalogue de la bibliothèque de feu M. Charles Nodier, 1844, n°761.

LAMOTHE. MANUSCRIT.
[circa 1660]. En deux feuilles jointes de 390 x 586 mm. Très beau dessin, à l'encre et lavis, montrant une vue du bastion royal de la ville de Péronne dans la Somme. On y voit une partie des fortifications de la ville avec un bastion central sur lequel se trouve une porte surmontée d'une cloche et portant deux blasons aux armes du roi et de Richelieu. En comparant ce dessin à un plan manuscrit de la ville, daté de 1728, et conservé aux archives de la Somme, il semble que le bastion royal de notre plan était placé en avant de la porte de Bretagne, et qu'ainsi la vue est prise depuis le faubourg de Bretagne. À droite du bastion royal, se trouve le bastion de Vendôme avec la tour de l'ancien corps de la place, et à gauche ce que le plan nomme la «place sans parapet». Au premier plan du dessin figurent de nombreux personnages occupés à tailler la pierre, tandis que d'autres, sur le bastion de gauche, font des travaux de terrassement. Le dessin est entouré d'un cadre dessiné à l'imitation des cadres en bois sculpté et surmonté des armes de Michel Le Tellier (1603-1685), Secrétaire d'État à la Guerre de 1643 à 1677. Grandes marges, traces de pliure et petites déchirures dans les marges, l'encre du titre dans le cartouche est presque effacée.

Doncker, Hendrik (c. 1625-1699)
"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 fami … [Click Below for Full Description]
