RUDBECK, Olof, the younger.
Cat. Linnean Soc., p. 663; Pritzel 7870; cf. "Life of Linnaeus", in: The Linnaean correspondence ( http://linnaeus.c18.net/Doc/lbio.php). First edition, of the first and only published part of a comprehensive work on the natural history of Lapland by Olof Rudbeck the younger (1660-1740), one of the professors of Linnaeus at Uppsala. It is the first part (of the planned 12), covering the region of Uppland on the eastern coast of Sweden, with the text in Swedish and Latin on facing pages.Rudbeck joined an expedition to Lapland in 1695, and returned with extensive botanical and zoological specimens, notes and drawings. Unfortunately most of these perished in the terrible fire of 1702 which destroyed three-quarters of Uppsala, leaving Rudbeck unable to finish his work. Many of the copies of the present first part were destroyed in the fire as well. Many years later "he invited Linnaeus to live in his house as tutor to his four youngest sons, with opportunities to use his rich library. ... He used his time diligently, beginning in Rudbeck's house the works later published as Bibliotheca botanica (1736), Critica botanica (1737), Genera plantarum (1737), Classes plantarum (1738), ... Thus by the age of 24 Linnaeus had laid the foundations for all his later work" ( The Linnaean correspondence ). During this time Rudbeck convinced Linnaeus to go and do research in Lapland himself as from a natural history point of view this region was almost completely unknown. This expedition led to his Flora Lapponica (1737) in which Linnaeus' ideas about nomenclature and classificat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Handcoloured ! Professionally cleaned, historical map, beautifully and professionally mounted/retsored on see-through, acid-free paper. Price includes worldwide free shipping. Willem Janszoon Blaeu also abbreviated to Willem Jansz. Blaeu, was a Dutch cartographer, atlas maker and publisher. Blaeu was born at Uitgeest or Alkmaar. As the son of a well-to-do herring salesman, he was destined to succeed his father in the trade, but his interests lay more in Mathematics and Astronomy. Between 1594 and 1596 as a student of the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe he qualified as an instrument and globe maker. In 1600 he discovered the second ever variable star now known as P Cygni. Once he returned to Holland, he made country maps and world globes, and as he possessed his own printing works, he was able to regularly produce country maps in an atlas format, some of which appeared in the Atlas Novus published in 1635. In 1633 he was appointed map-maker of the East Indian Company. He was also an editor and published works of Willebrord Snell, Descartes, Adriaan Metius, Roemer Visscher, Gerhard Johann Vossius, Barl … [Click Below for Full Description]

JONSTON, John
Amsterdam, J.J. Schipper, 1660. First Dutch edition. Folio (377 x 237 mm), six parts in one volume; pp. 8,194; 8, 179, 1, 56; 181, 3; 8, 152; 39, 1. With 4 beautiful allegorical engraved title pages and 250 full-page fine engraved plates by Matthias Merian. Engraved head-pieces (Nissen, 1951). Contemporary mottled calf. Professional rebacking of hinges incorporating original spine. Spine with six raised bands and gilt decorations. Second compartment reads J. Jonston van de dieren. The preliminaries of some sections in the Dutch edition are misbound. An Amsterdam copy on thick paper without age browning in a contemporary dark leather binding, very rare in this condition. Jonston (1603-1675), born in Poland of Scottish ancestors, was an assiduous compiler and published numerous works. He was a physician, practising medicine at Leiden for several years. His Historiae Naturalis appeared in instalments at Frankfurt between 1649-1662. It was reprinted in its entirety at Amsterdam in 1660. The work has four main parts: Part one, mammals with 80 plates; part two, fishes with 48 plates, one more than in the Latin edition, depicting the sea unicorn, with an extra leaf of text; a sub-part of part two with other sea animals including 20 plates; part three birds with 62 plates; part four insects with 28 plates; a sub-part of part four with snakes and dragons including 12 plates. Jonston's compilations are usually full of images. The latter are the real pleasure of these books today. They include fabulous beasts such as the unicorn, phoenix, mermaid and dragon.

"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.

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.

On connait, dans les fonds publics, de nombreux recueils manuscrits d'historiographie judiciaire portant des titres proches. La période historique traitée s'étend ici sur mille ans, de 610 à 1610, de Brunehaut sous le règne de Clotaire II, au procès de Ravaillac auquel le compilateur consacre prés de 30 feuillets. Une seconde main, plus tardive, a ajouté le Procès contre Damien qui tenta d'assassiner Louis XV en 1757. De cette même seconde main fut ajouté un "Arrest de condamnation dudit Ravaillac" au verso du feuillet 200. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
