Schoock, Marten.
Groningen Jan Cöllen Format: 12° 180 S Mit großer Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf dem Titel Titel in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt Schlichter moderner Pappband 1661 - *** Erste Ausgabe der historischen Darstellung des „Lex regia", des Königsrechts aus antiken Quellen in den Briefen des holländischen Polyhistors Martin Schoock (1614-1669). Die Briefe sind an den Bruder des Autors, Antonius Schoock, gerichtet. Martin Schoock war Professor für Logik und Physik in Groningen gewesen, und wurde Hofgeschichtsschreiber des Brandenburger Kurfürsten zu Berlin. Er erhielt eine Stelle als Honorarprofessor an der Universität von Frankfurt an der Oder, wo er starb und beigesetzt wurde. Die vorliegende gehört zu den seltensten Schriften des Autors, der bis zu 50 Traktate im Laufe seines Lebens veröffentlicht hatte - von denen fast alle auf dem Index landeten und die meisten vernichtet wurden.Die besonders hübsche Druckermarke in Beschlagwerkkartusche mit Früchten und den Initialen „I.C." zeigt den in seinem Walde tätigen Gärtner als Greffeur beim Pfropfen der Obstbäume mit dem Motto „Multiplicando prosum", im Hintergrund das Bauernhaus. Nur ganz blasser, unbedeutender Wasserrand unten, sonst durchgehend sauber und in bester Erhaltung. Erste Ausgabe [Attributes: First Edition]

Tesauro, Emanuele:
Mediolani (Mailand), apud Bidellium (Bidellius), 1661. 12 x 7,5 cm. 8 Blatt, 224 Seiten. Pappband der Zeit (Einband mit Bezugspapier des 18. oder 19. Jahrhunderts überzogen). *Die Erstausgabe erschien 1645, eine weitere Auflage 1652. - Eines der unbekannteren und selteneren Werke des italienischen Rhetorikers und Schriftstellers Tesauro (1592-1675). Er entwickelt eine biblische Genealogie, graphisch in Baumdiagrammen dargestellt. Es beginnt mit Adam und Eva und endet bei der Geburt Christi, womit für ihn bewiesen ist, dass Christus von Adam und Eva abstammt. Dazwischen liegen sechs genealogische Entwicklungsstufen: Mundi pueritia (pastores), Mundi adolescentia (milites), Juventus Mundi (duces), Mundi virilitas (reges), Mundi senectus (solitarii) und Nova Aetas (sancti). - Tesauro zählt zu den führenden Vertretern des Concettismo, und Wikipdia schreibt: "Der Concettismo entstand im italienischen und spanischen Barock des ausgehenden 16. Jahrhunderts und erlebte seine europäische Blütezeit im 17. Jahrhundert. Die Stilpraxis war begleitet von einer eigenen ästhetisch-rhetorischen Theorie. Deren Hauptvertreter sind Baltasar Gracián (Agudeza y arte de ingenio, 1648), Matteo Pellegrini (Delle acutezze, che altrimenti spiriti, vivezze, e concetti volgarmente si appellano trattato, 1639) und Emanuele Tesauro, bei dem bereits der Titel des Traktats Il cannocchiale aristotelico (1654, erw. Ausg. 1670), zu deutsch 'Das aristotelische Fernrohr', durch seine bewusst anachronistisch gefügte Metapher das Stilprinzip illustriert." - Insgesamt recht sauber und nur wenig gebräunt. la Gewicht … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pagan, Blaise Francois, Count de Merveilles
First English edition, translated from the French by William Hamilton -first Paris 1656. Illustrated with a folding map entitled "Magni Amazoni Fluvii in America Meridionali nova delineate" of north South America, focusing on the Brazilian Amazon region and River. Sabin says the work includes "Several chapters... devoted to descriptions of the aborigines of the valley of the Amazon"; in addition there are topographical descriptions of the various regions, mentioning potential products suitable for commerce. There is evidence to suggest that the work is ostensibly a translation from Acuña´s Nuevo Descubrimiento del gran Rio de las Amazonas (Madrid, 1641). Of this latter, only a few copies are known since it was suppressed by order of the King, probably due to the fact that the relation by Acuña mentioned that the Amazon River was navigable from Quito to the Atlantic. "The value of Pagan´s work is shown in his dedication to Cardinal Mazarin, in which he urges him to take possession of the Amazon and establish several colonies... The map drawn by Pagan is of great importance as a proof of the French ambitions in the Amazon regions" (Borba de Moraes). In this English translation, William Hamilton (the translator), urges the King of England to take possession of Brazil. The work is one of the most important sources of information about the Amazon River and North Brazil. Pagan advocated the conquest of the Amazon by France, and in the dedicatory epistle of the present edition the translator suggests that England should attempt the same. JCBL says "...Pagan, Comte de Merveilles... … [Click Below for Full Description]

[WIC - BRAZIL].
Borba de Moraes, p. 50; Boxer, The Dutch in Brazil, pp. 253-255; Knuttel 8730. 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.

PLAN - AMSTERDAM CITY HALL]. [CAMPEN, Jacob van].
1661. Cf. BAL 533 (1st Dutch ed.); Fowler 77 & 274 (1st Dutch ed.); Berlin Kat. 2235 (1st French ed.). 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.

ALCIATI, Andrea [1492-1550]
Padua: Paolo Frambotti, 1661. First published in 1531, Alciati?s Emblemata was the most popular and influential of emblem books. The present edition is based on the 1621 Paduan edition, the most extensively commentated of Alciati editions, edited by Joannes Thuilius, professor in Freiburg im Breisgau, who combined also the commentaries by Mignault, Sanchez, and Pignorius. The woodcuts are the same as in the 1618 and 1621 Paduan editions but incorporate new borders. The 1621 edition marked the reintroduction of the offensive emblem LXXX, which had been banished from many previous editions. Landwehr 103. Green 165.

Divisional title-page (i.e. ²A1) has 19mm excised at tail edge, seemingly to remove the imprint and date.

Rubbed, endcaps and joints worn, corners fraying with some loss to upper fore-edge corner.

A very good, unsophisticated copy. Initials M.O. in an old hand to engraved title-page. The engraved title-page reads Universalis Historia ab orbe condito usq[ue] ad annum 1657, and is dated 1660. The last 68 pages, 'Chronologia principum sive series & successio Romanorum pontificum' have a separate title page on leaf ²A1, and separate pagination and signatures.

First edition, first issue, 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), written by a Paris "marchand orphevre". 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 book is dedicated to Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier and first cousin of Louis XIV. 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 [= Hormuz] & Bassora [= Basra]: aupres de Baroyn [= Bahrain][,] Catiffa [= Qatif], Juffa [or Jafu?], Camaron [= Gamron/Bandar Abbas], & autres lieux de ce Golfe ..."

(Sinkankas).With marginal worm holes mostly at the head but slightly affecting the running head or first line of text in a few leaves, occasional marginal water stains, but otherwise in very good condition. Hinge slightly damaged, a few small worm holes and small tears in the spine and a few scrapes and scratches, but otherwise good.

Kahale, Abdallah Zakher (2000); Hanebutt-Benz et al., Middle Eastern languages and the print revolution (2002), pp. 179-181. Very rare second Arabic edition (the first to be printed in Lebanon) of the four Gospels arranged for liturgical use in the Greek Melkite Church, to make readings for services according to the day of the year: a so-called Evangeliary or Evangelion. It was intended primarily for Arabic-speaking Christians in the Middle East, rather than for missionary work. The first Arabic edition was printed and published at Aleppo in 1706. Al-Shamas Abdallah Zakher (1684-1748), son of an Aleppo goldsmith, worked at the Aleppo printing office but had to flee in 1722 because of disputes that were to lead to the 1724 schism in the Melkite Church. Zakher established the printing office of the Melkite monastery of St. John the Baptist at Dayr al-Shuwayr in the Lebanese Kisrawan mountains, where he produced a psalter in 1734. He is said to have been skilled in jewelry-making and cutting in metal and wood, and to have cut the punches for the 1734 Arabic type. The printing office produced about 70 Arabic editions before it closed in 1899.With marginal manuscript notes in Arabic script, the stamp of a Diyarbakir (in Anatolia, eastern Turkey) library in the margin of the last page.

ACUPUNCTURE CHARTS
[Japan]: 1661. A handsome and complete set of four woodblock-printed acupuncture charts, created in Japan for the medical profession. These are very rare and are based on various texts which were introduced into Japan from China in the beginning of the 17th century. The chief source for the woodcuts is Dou's Shinkan Kotei meido kyukyo [trans.: The Yellow Emperor's Canon of Moxibustion], published several times in Japan in the first half of the 17th century. It is a rare collection of dissertations on moxibustion and acupuncture. This work is a commentary and explanation of the Ling-shu, which "formed [along with the Su Wen] the theoretical basis of classical Chinese medicine…the Ling-shu…discusses mainly therapy - mostly centered on medicinal prescriptions, but also including physical therapies such as bonesetting and breathing exercises, and stimulation treatments such as acupuncture, moxibustion and massage."-Sugimoto & Swain, Science & Culture in Traditional Japan, p. 85. The charts are designed to be hung on walls for reference, each with names and locations of meridians printed at top: 1. "Jinshin Gozo No Zu" [trans.: "Illustrations of Human Internal Organs"]. Depicts the five main organs of the abdomen, hand-painted in white, red, black, blue, yellow, beige, and pink. 2. "Sokujin meido no zu" [trans.: "Side View Human Profile 'Ming tang' Acupuncture Theory"]. Highlighted in red and blue, with names of the pressure points. 3. "Ojin meido no zu" [trans.: "Front View Human Profile 'Ming tang' Acupuncture Theory"]. Highlighted in red, rust, blue, and green. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Extensive description on request Interesting and important early collection of 11 very rare architectural print series (with a few additional prints from other series bound with them) giving in total 120 engraved and etched plates of churches, other buildings, portals, altars, mantelpieces, ceilings and wall panels, alcoves, pulpits, architectural decorations (including helmets, military insignia, decorated borders, friezes, masks), fountains and grottoes, mainly in Paris and surroundings. The prints are etched and engraved by the best and most famous artists in Paris in the 1650s and 1660s: Jean Le Pautre, Jean Marot ('Le grand Marot'), Pierre Cottart, Jean Boisseau, Antoine Pierretz and Francesco Fanelli. All but Boisseau's were published and printed by the two most famous printers of engravings and etchings: Pierre Mariette II and Jacques van Merle. None of the 11 series is demonstrably later than 1661, though some may be later in the 1660s. The fact that each print series at least generally shows a consistent paper stock and the fact that the endleaves show a watermark contemporary with the latest print series strongly suggests that each series comes from a single impression as published and that they were bound together soon after publication: this is not a collection assembled from separate prints by a collector. It is of the greatest importance for the history of French architecture during the seventeenth century.

Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "giglio nel cerchio e grappolo d’uva" (databile alla seconda metà del XVII secolo), con un bel tono di lastra, ampi margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. San Guglielmo di Malavalle, noto anche come Guglielmo di Aquitania, fu un eremita e contemplativo, i cui insegnamenti, raccolti dal suo discepolo Alberto, che visse con lui il suo ultimo anno di vita, nel Consuetudines e Regula sancti Guillelmi, diedero origine all'Ordine di San Guglielmo. È venerato come santo dalla Chiesa cattolica. Etching with drypoint, 1661 circa, signed at lower right. Example of the second state of two. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with "encircled fluer-de-lys" watermark, wide margins, perfect conditions. St. William of Maleval, also known as William of Aquitaine, was a hermit, contemplative, whose teachings, collected by his disciple Alberto who lived with him his last year of life, and in Consuetudines Regula sancti Guillelmi, gave rise to 'order of St. William. It is revered as a saint by the Catholic Church. A great example. Bartsch 1; Thodoli 99; Salamon 85. 235 355mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]
