Sir Robert Dudley [cartographer] / Antonio Francesco Lucini [engraver]
Francesco Onofri in Florence., 1661 [1646]. EXTREMELY RARE copper engraving, on two sheets joined, in beautifully clean and intact condition - almost impossible to find in such pristine state. A most important chart from 'Dell' Arcano del Mare' [Mystery of the Sea] - one of the six maps that show the Philippines. Published in six huge volumes by Francesco Onofri in Florence. SECOND state 1661: cartouche shows: 2 o L o with manuscript insertion of XVIII underneath in an old hand. The Map stretches from the Arabian Emirates and Persia through the Indian Ocean and Indochina to the Western Philippines: from Batanes Islands, the Northern tip of Luzon, via Manila to the entire Palawan and the West Philippine Sea including several Shoals and the Paracels. Robert Dudley (1574 - 1649), an Englishman, produced this atlas while in exile in Florence. He likely received some of his information directly from his friend Sir Francis Drake and his in-law Thomas Cavendish. Completed in manuscript form in 1636, he laboured for decades before finally releasing the first edition of this work in 1646 when he was 73 years old. Dudley's atlas is of the utmost importance in the history of European Cartography for several reasons: 1) the first Sea Atlas to cover the entire world (not just Europe). 2) the first atlas to utilize the Mercator Projection on a uniform basis 3) the first to include significant advances in "Great Circle" navigation (shortest circle around the Globe). 4) the first to include winds and currents 5) the first to include magnetic declination.

[WIC - BRAZIL].
[14] ll.Second edition, of the Dutch translation of the peace treaty ending the Dutch-Portuguese war. The WIC (Dutch West India Company) and VOC (Dutch East India Company) were at war with the Portuguese Armada, mainly to gain hegemony in the overseas colonies and trade. The war officially ended in August 1661, though the peace treaty was not ratified until 1663. “The main provisions of the treaty were as follows. Portugal was to pay the United Provinces 4 million cruzados in sixteen years as an indemnity for the loss of Netherlands Brazil, ... The Dutch were to be granted trade and residence in Portugal and her overseas possessions on the same terms as those already enjoyed by the English, or which might be granted to the latter in the future... The treaty was to be ratified within three months and published within six; but owing to the subsequent disputes and delays, the formal publication did not take place until March and April 1663” (Boxer).Slightly browned and the margins somewhat thumbed. Paper wrappers soiled and spine damaged. Still a good copy.l Borba de Moraes, p. 50; Boxer, The Dutch in Brazil, pp. 253-255; Knuttel 8730.

Praz and others attribute items 2-4 to his father, the great Nürnberg engraver Christoph Weigel (1654-1725), who may have engraved their plates, though item 4 may have appeared shortly after his death. With the 18th-century bookplate of Charles Pierre Joseph Le Candèle; the ca. 1900 bookplate of the Hale family, Alderly House, Gloucestershire; and the blind stamp of the Liberna collection of Bernard Brenninkmeijer (1893-1976) on second free endleaf.Item 4 appears to have been printed from slightly worn copper plates. With an occasional spot, slightly affecting 2 monograms in item 1, but still with all plates in good or very good condition. The binding is somewhat worn but still good. A lovely collection of 184 emblems and monograms from the early 18th century.l Ad 1: Bonacini, 2031; Hollstein XXXI, p. 92; ad 2-3: Praz, p. 533; ad 4: cf.

[8], 440, [44]; 280, [6] pp.Fourth edition of the rare Dutch translation of a collection of texts on the “powder of sympathy”, first published in 1661. Sir Kenelm Digby (1603-1665) was an English courtier and diplomat. He was also a highly reputed natural philosopher, and known as a leading Roman Catholic intellectual and Blackloist. Although Digby was in touch with the leading intellectuals of the time, and was highly regarded by them, and although he was a founding member of the Royal Society, he was regarded as an eccentric by most of his contemporaries, partly because of his effusive personality and partly because of his interest in scientific matters. Henry Stubbe called him “the very Pliny of our age for lying”. The present edition includes a translation of (parts of) Nicolaus Papin's Dissertatio de pulvere sympathetico (first edition: Paris 1644), together with parts of Sylvester Rattray's Aditus novus ad occultas sympathiæ et antipathiæ causas inveniendas (Glasgow, 1658), dedicated to Johannes Scotus. Papin (ca. 1600-1653) was a French physician at Blois and Alencon Both texts were reprinted in Theatrum sympatheticum variorum authorum de pulvere sympathetico (Nürnberg, 1662). It also includes a Dutch translation of a compilation from the works by the brilliant but eccentric Jesuit Athanasius Kirchner (1602-1653), mainly on magnetism and the influence of the moon, sun, etc: Het groote licht de natuurkunde, ofte De magnetiche werrelt.Ad 2: Rare first and only edition of the Dutch translation of Digby's Choice and experimented receipts in physick and chirurgery, as als … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERQUEN, Robert de.
[8], 152 pp.Second, enlarged edition of a rare work on precious stones and pearls found in what the title calls the East and West Indies (but including the Gulf region). It is most important for the author's new information on diamonds, pearls and pearl fishing, this last with considerable detail on the various pearl fishing sites in the Gulf. The extensive chapter devoted to pearls and pearl fishing notes the Persian Gulf as the most important source and names specific sites: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus & Bassora: aupres de Baroyn [= Bahrain], Catiffa, Juffa, Camaron, & autres lieux de ce Golfe ..." (p. 68). The present second edition includes an entirely new 17-page appendix on the history of the Spanish conquest in the New World with further remarks on pearl fisheries, natural history and trade. Several new chapters have also been added, on the pricing of diamonds according to size and quality, on the pricing of pearls, two chapters on alchemy and tables of the fineness of silver and gold. This material, not included in the 1661 edition gives the present second edition its greater value: "In terms of substance, this [second] edition is considerably superior to the first; both are rare" (Sinkankas).With an occasional faint stain and a couple leaves with very minor foxing, but still in very good condition. The binding is slightly worn, with cracks in the hinges and damaged corners (some repaired), but otherwise good, with most of the tooling well preserved.

Première édition collective, parue posthume, et rare exemplaire bien complet de ses 9 planches dont 3 cartes repliées de constellations. Jacob Bartsch, mathématicien et astronome, fut l'assistant et le gendre de Kepler dont il épousa la fille Suzanne en 1630. En 1624, dans son rarissime Usus Astronomicus Planisphaerii Stellati il introduisit sept nouvelles constellations basées sur des globes de Petrus Plancius et Isaac Habrecht II édités respectivement en 1612 et 1621 dont trois nous sont restées aujourd'hui : la girafe, la licorne et rhombus (renommé Reticulum). Cette édition collective, procurée par Andreas Goldmayer, un astrologue et fabricant de calendriers établi à Nuremberg, réédite le manuel de 1624 et ses trois importantes cartes célestes. Goldmayer y ajoute également une préface historique dans laquelle il retrace en détails l'histoire des grands astronomes de Nuremberg avec la bibliographie de leurs principales publications, un calendrier solaire ou éphéméride par Laurentius Eichstadius, un calendrier de 25 ans à partir de l'année 1662, un catalogue d'étoiles basé sur les travaux de Tycho Brahé, Kepler et Severinus, un catalogue des villes européennes avec leurs latitudes et longitudes, un tableau des élévations polaires pour Nuremberg par Cyprian Leowitz, etc. Première garde volante, frontispice en … [Click Below for Full Description]

[PLAN - AMSTERDAM CITY HALL]. [CAMPEN, Jacob van].
Very large engraved plan showing the extraordinary cartographic mosaic floor of the Burgerzaal of the Amsterdam City Hall, designed by Jacob van Campen, with a celestial map in the centre and the magnificent map of the world in 2 hemispheres on either side. The engraving was first published in 1661, and the map shows Tasman's recent discoveries in Australia and Tasmania, and depicts California as an island. Many discoveries from his second voyage remained otherwise unpublished until the end of the 17th-century. This engraved representation is all that is left of this cartographical work of art. Wear caused by people walking on the mosaic meant it had to be restored about a hundred years later. When in turn this restoration was damaged the two hemispheres were filled in with plain marble slabs without pictorial representation.The drawing of the floor was made by Jacob Vennekool who worked closely with Van Campen, and since his drawings were first published even before the building was completed, they may reflect Van Campen's plan more closely than the finished building itself. They also, of course, show it before the alterations made at various times in later years.Slightly wrinkled in the right margin, one fold reinforced and a few tiny spots, otherwise in very good condition.l Cf. BAL 533 (1st Dutch ed.); Fowler 77 & 274 (1st Dutch ed.); Berlin Kat. 2235 (1st French ed.).

Amsterdam: Bij Abraham Latham, Boeckverkoper op't Rockin, op't hoeckje van de Larige brug Steegh, [undated but] 1661. THE TRUE SECOND EDITION (1st ed. 1624). Quarto: Bound in contemporary Dutch vellum (soiled, abrasion to lower edge). Printed on thick paper. A broad-margined copy, very clean, with just the slightest bit of marginal soiling to title and a few leaves, tiny rust hole to leaf C4 and Ee3, and •3 and Ii1 dusty at head. A very nice copy of this attractive emblem book. The text is illustrated with 52 copperplate engravings by Christof Le Blon (d. 1665), Johann Gelle (d. 1625), Willem van de Passe (1598-1637), Albert Poel (active 1624), and Jan Gerrits Swelinck (b. ca. 1601), all after Adriaen van de Venne (1589-1662). Each emblem consists of a motto, pictura, and epigram, followed by an extensive prose 'explanations' or 'elaborations'. Praz notes that Brune, like Cats, "took inspiration from proverbs and everyday life; his realistic emblems form a counterpart to genre painting and supply interesting evidence for the history of costume."(Praz, Studies in 17th-cent. imagery, p. 86) Among the more unusual emblems is one showing a pretzel being pulled by two hands (each using one finger only), a symbol of transient life and of spiritually twisted man who occupies a position between God and the devil. Another shows a rotting cheese wheel with maggots and the motto "Too much sharpness will maim".Brune's "Emblemata" were first published in 1624. A "sec … [Click Below for Full Description]

[ANTWERP - PHARMACOPOEIA]. [BOUDEWIJNS, Michiel, and others].
Pharmacia Antverpiensis galeno-chymica.Antwerp, Joris Willemsens I, 1660 [engraved title-page 1661]. 4to. With an integral engraved title-page by Petrus van Caukercken after Abraham van Diepenbeeck, showing the figures of Galenus and Mesue. 18th-century vellum. [1], [1 blank], [46], "285" [= 281], [32], [1 blank] pp. Rare first and only edition, in Latin, of the first and only official pharmacopoeia for Antwerp. In 1659 the Antwerp Collegium Medicum decided to produce their own pharmacopoeia, primarily at the impetus of their secretary and future director, Michiel Boudewijns (1591-1681), best known as the father of modern medical ethics. The decision to compile it makes explicit reference to those published at Augsburg (1564), Rome (1583), Amsterdam (1636) and Brussels (1641), but Valerius Cordus, whose pharmacopoeia had been official in Brussels since 1624, may have remained the most important source. No apothecaries were officially consulted in the compilation of the pharmacopoeia, reflecting the growing status of physicians and declining status of apothecaries.The work has extensive preliminaries with dedications, notes to the reader, laudatory verses, etc., but some copies include an unsigned bifolium inserted after a2 containing an additional dedication, not present here. The present copy does have the rarer addendum leaf at the end and an addendum slip on Q3r supplying the omitted last line of that page (with the quire signature and catchword below it). The addendum leaf has three blind impressions of the type for this addendum slip in its head margin.With minimal wea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cosmographie ou doctrine de la sphere. Avec un traitté de la geographie. Sedan, François Chayer, 1661. 8vo. Near contemporary half vellum. 127, [1 blank] pp. Apparently the only surviving copy, not found recorded, of the second (and last) edition of a book devoted to astrolabes, globes, cosmography and geography by the French philosopher Claude Pithois (1587-1676). A two-page foreword addressed "a ceux qui le meritent" notes among other things that the book is useful for people compiling almanacs or writing horoscopes, but does not refer to the earlier edition. A four-page "prelude" in XII numbered points follows, mainly defining terms, then IV numbered treatises: "Traitté de la sphere en general" (on Ptolemaic astrolabes, the earth and the universe: the "sphere artificielle" and "sphere naturelle"), "Traitté de la region celeste" (on the sun, moon, planets and stars, including constellations), "Traitté de la region elementaire" (on the earth, subterranean regions, seas and air, associated with the four elements) and "Traitté des principes de la geographie" (with special emphasis on globes). It is a simple introduction to the subjects, explaining many different terms and concepts. Until now it was known only from the very rare first edition (1641), printed by Pierre Jannon at Sedan. The deliberate destruction of the books of the Protestant Academy at Sedan in 1681 no doubt contributed to the rarity of Sedan books of this period and this one was probably intended for students, who no doubt wore out most copies.With some minor marginal chips, tears and holes, not approaching … [Click Below for Full Description]

The book is dedicated to Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier and first cousin of Louis XIV.

Amsterdam: Bij Abraham Latham, Boeckverkoper op't Rockin, op't hoeckje van de Larige brug Steegh, [undated but] 1661. THE TRUE SECOND EDITION (1st ed. 1624). Quarto: Bound in contemporary Dutch vellum (soiled, abrasion to lower edge). Printed on thick paper. A broad-margined copy, very clean, with just the slightest bit of marginal soiling to title and a few leaves, tiny rust hole to leaf C4 and Ee3, and •3 and Ii1 dusty at head. A very nice copy of this attractive emblem book. The text is illustrated with 52 copperplate engravings by Christof Le Blon (d. 1665), Johann Gelle (d. 1625), Willem van de Passe (1598-1637), Albert Poel (active 1624), and Jan Gerrits Swelinck (b. ca. 1601), all after Adriaen van de Venne (1589-1662). Each emblem consists of a motto, pictura, and epigram, followed by an extensive prose 'explanations' or 'elaborations'. Praz notes that Brune, like Cats, "took inspiration from proverbs and everyday life; his realistic emblems form a counterpart to genre painting and supply interesting evidence for the history of costume."(Praz, Studies in 17th-cent. imagery, p. 86) Among the more unusual emblems is one showing a pretzel being pulled by two hands (each using one finger only), a symbol of transient life and of spiritually twisted man who occupies a position between God and the devil. Another shows a rotting cheese wheel with maggots and the motto "Too much sharpness will maim".Brune's "Emblemata" were first published in 1624. A "s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rome: 1661. Rome:, 1661. FIRST EDITION.. Octavo:. Bound in 19th c. quarter vellum and marbled boards, repairs to spine. A very good copy, sigs. R-S and V-X browned. Early inscription on title. Marbled edges. Giacinto de Magistris, an Italian Jesuit, worked in India for twenty years before returning to Rome in 1660. From 1644 to 1659 he acted as secretary and companion to Archbishop Francisco Garcia of Cranganore. He returned to Europe as procurator of the Malabar mission. He later returned to India, where he died in 1668. In 1661 Magistris published at Rome his 'Relation' as a call to his confreres to enlist for service in Madura, Tanjore, and other places in southern and eastern India. "Magistris' account is based on the Jesuit's own experience in this region, as well as on information from fellow Jesuits in charge of the various residences and dependencies maintained by the Society. Since he was looking for recruits and financial aid in Europe, he stresses Christian successes and failures and provides many edifying stories about the fortitude and staunchness in the faith of both the missionaries and their converts. He pounces at every opportunity upon the 'errors' of the Indians and upon their superstitious practices. While he had only a superficial partisan interest in Hinduism, he is sometimes surprisingly full and precise on military, political, and broadly cultural matters...

En dehors de la page de titre, la seule différence notable est le retrait de l'épître au Cardinal de Mazarin mort le 9 mars 1661. L'illustration a été réalisée par François Chauveau : 5 titres frontispices ornementés, 15 planches dont les sujets sont placés au centre de lettres et de chiffres fleuris et 5 planches uniquement ornées de grands chiffres. Le texte est rehaussé de 135 bandeaux, lettrines et culs de lampe gravés sur bois dans le style des frontispices et des chiffres de planches. Un papillon indiquant le transport de privilège à la date du 12 septembre 1659 a été collé en bas de l'extrait du privilège. Sur le dernier feuillet, un errata a été contrecollé par l'éditeur.
