DUDLEY, Robert
Venice., c.1660. Map of the Indian ocean with part of the coast of Madagascar. Copper engraving. Uncoloured. In fine condition, a clear, crisp impression Size: 39 x 48 cm. (15½ x 19 inches) A beautiful sea chart of part of the Indian Ocean, north-west coast of Madagascar, and islands to the east including Mauritius. 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.

The binding was made by the Andreoli Bindery, which in addition to their extensive work for the Borghese family also produced bindings for Popes Alexander VII and Clement IX as well as for royalty, including Queen Christina of Sweden. The crimson morocco binding has remarkably delicate, lace-like, gold-tooled designs framing the Borghese arms.This volume contains a world map, consisting of two hemispheric maps, and continental maps of Europe, Asia, and Africa, each of which consists of four sheets. Nicolosi also published another volume that contained text and an eight-sheet map of the Americas that is not included here. The volume offered has all map sheets called for.Shirley 418; Betz 94.1

Taylor, Jeremy
London: Pr. by James Flesher for Richard Royston Folio (32 cm, 12.6"). 2 vols. I: Add. engr. t.-p., [6], xl, 559, [1] pp.; 1 plt. II: [2], 558, [2] pp.. 1660 First edition: Important philosophical treatise on conscience, casuistry, and Christian ethics, written by the Bishop of Down and Connor. The controversialist Taylor, crowned "the Shakespeare of divines" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, was the subject during his career of a number of accusations of crypto-popery, but the present work — the first of its kind — was designed as a "complete protestant answer to the many Roman Catholic manuals of casuistry" (according to the Oxford DNB online) and intended to provide an authoritative Anglican reference on the subject. The portrait of the author was engraved by Pierre Lombard, while the added engraved title-page is unsigned. Each of the four books here (in two volumes) has a separate title-page; the main title-pages are printed in black and ruled in red. The text is in English, Greek, and Latin. A printed addenda slip is affixed to the final text page of vol. II, above the catalogue of books sold by Richard Royston. Leaf L6 in vol. II is a cancel (and separated). Provenance: Vol. I added title-page recto with inked ownership inscription dated 1781 ("T. Moore"); vol. II front fly-leaf with inked ownership inscription dated 1696 ("Guilel.

Signatures: A-B4, C-C3 (A, A3, A4, B2, B4, C3 unsigned). Light wear to boards, with small patch of rubbing on spine. Corners slightly bumped. Pages have been trimmed, leading to loss of text on title page (top half of "Ode"), page 9 (most of the final line of text), and the second set of page numbers near the top margin of each page. A small section at the lower margin of the final three leaves has chipped away, not affecting text. Previous owner and bookseller notations on added ffep. Inked note on title page. With faults as noted quite good. Very good/No dust jacket. Cowley (1618-1667), a poet and sometime diplomat/secretary to Queen Henrietta Maria (wife of CharlesI), may have worked as a spy for the royalists during the late Cromwell era. His collections "The Mistress" (1647) and "Poems" (1656) wereimmensely popular during the poet's lifetime. MacLean writes of this piece "Cowley's Ode is highly figurative, blending biblical and classical allusions with motifs from astrology and medicine. Highly dynastic in argument, the poem is structured as a royal entry in which the king, other members of the royal family, Monk, and members of the two houses of parliament mingle with allegorical personifications of Liberty, Plenty, Riches, Honour and Safety.

It was common during the Saxon era, but was gradually supplanted by primogeniture after 1066.

Köpenhamn, Petri Morsingii, 1660. 4:o. (18),+ 326,+ (10),+ 174,+ (6) s. Genomgående med små fläckar, något större på sid. 161 och solkig sid. 185-192 i första pagineringsföljden. Samtida pergamentband med textad ryggtitel i bläck. L. F. Rääfs exlibris. Bibl. danica III, sp. 148. Warmholtz 4674. Med det "Odensehische Vertrag" från 1579 och tryckfelslistan, vilka saknas i somliga exemplar. Gunde Rosenkrantz (1604-75), son till Holger Rosenkrantz, var danskt riksråd. Från 1657 propagerade han ivrigt för att påbörja ett nytt krig mot Sverige och skrev ett antal mycket hårda skrifter mot det nordliga grannlandet och dess krigsförbrytelser mot Danmark, bl. a. denna som författades på danska regeringens uppdrag. 1664 hade han dock kreditorer efter sig och såg ingen annan utväg än att fly till Sverige, och 1670 ansökte den tidigare så ivrige danske patrioten om att bli svensk undersåte, men förgäves. I misär dog han i Helsingborg, inte välkommen vare sig i Danmark eller i Sverige. Vid sidan av politik bedrev han ivrigt teologiska och klassiska studier, och publicerade även en del uppbyggelselitteratur, som delvis även översattes till svenska.

Venetia, Apresso il Nicolini (Francesco Valuasense), 1660. Small folio. Completely uncut in orig. well preserved boards, kept in a protective cloth-box. Title in a large woodcut-border. (12),148 pp. With more than 150 fine engraved woodcuts in the text, half-page and full-page. The content in near mint condition.. The rare second edition of this important and beautiful treatise, which constitutes a summary of Vitruvius' "De Architectura", with 150 large beautiful woodcuts. The work is a successful marriage of highly effective illustrations and concise text.Giovanni Antonio Rusconi (1520 - 1587) was a naval architect and designer of several palaces and churches in Venice. After a fire he worked on the rebuilding of the Doges' Palace supervised by Palladio. He wrote extensively on architecture and played a dominant role in the development of Renaissance architecture; his architectural reputation was however hurt after a cult developed around the architect Palladio, mainly due to his Baroque style with which the stripped down classical style of his erstwhile mentor seemed to compare badly."The most complete architectural library know to us from the sixteenth century is that of the Venetian architect Giovanni Antonio Rusconi. [...] Rusconi´s library included a variety of titles on architecture, geometry, military, agriculture, arithmetic, and poetry." (Anderson, Christy. Inigo Jones and the classical tradition, 2006, p 63)

[Great Britain-Spain Relations]:
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.
