Dahlberg var en fremragende general, ingeniör og tegner, der selv leverede de fleste af forlaeggene til kobberstikkene. Det ambitiöse vaerk er fra Sveriges storhedstid og det tog mere end 50 ar at fuldende det med dets mange vidunderlige prospekter af byer og statelige bygningsvaerker i alle egne af Sverige og Finland. Der var planlagt og pabegyndt en tekst til det store vaerk, men den udkom aldrig. <br>The greatest and finest engraved work ever produced in Scandinavia.

Based, but with heavily revised opinions towards those Elizabethan non-conformists originally treated with some sympathy in the same author's The English Creede (London, 1585), it crowned a lengthy career in theological translation and controversialism.

[TASMAN] CAMPEN, Jacob Van.
Dancker Danckerts, Amsterdam, 1661. Folio, with an engraved title-page, a full-page portrait of Campen and 30 engraved plates, mostly double-page, one folding; contemporary vellum with the arms of Stirling Maxwell stamped in blind on the upper boards (there is also a later family member's bookplate). Oddly enough, this splendid architectural record of the Amsterdam Town Hall is also one of very few early printed records of Tasman's voyages.Jacob Van Campen began his designs for his masterpiece in 1648: the Town Hall was finally completed in 1665, ten years after Van Campen's death. His draughtsman, Jacob Vennekool, made the drawings for this book, which were engraved by Dankerts. They include exterior and interior elevations, sections and plans. There is also a magnificent anonymous portrait of Van Campen himself.The building was itself an emblem of the great commercial successes of the Dutch, successes that are specifically celebrated in the rich sculptural decorations. The main pediment, for example, shows the oceans and continents of the world paying tribute to Amsterdam.Tasman's voyages had been completed in 1644, and two of the engraved plates - a double-page engraving followed by a single-page - depict the wide marble floor of the Burgerzaal, the main room of the Town Hall. This floor, essentially the centre-piece of the whole building, contained the famous marble Tasman map, a world map in two spheres (with a third astronomical sphere) which displayed the results of Tasman's voyages to Australia, proudly showing the latest achievements of the Dutch VOC.

[PLAN - AMSTERDAM CITY HALL]. [CAMPEN, Jacob van].
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.

1661. The "Ornament of the Common Law" Littleton, Sir Thomas [1402-1481]. Littletons Tenures in English, Lately Perused and Amended. London: Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1661. [ii], 257, [5] pp. Last page is a blank. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Contemporary calf with later rebacking and recornering, blind rules to boards, blind fillets along joints, lettering piece and blind fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Light rubbing to extremities, a few small nicks to board edges, front hinge starting. Light toning to text, a bit of soiling to title page. Tiny early owner initials to title page, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown. An appealing copy. * Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases.

State Papers, Dom. 1636-7 p. 398, 1639-40 pp. 271, 277). Before 1656 Perrot joined the Quakers, and was preaching in Limerick. The next year he started, with the full authority of the Quaker body and at its expense, with one John Love, also an Irishman, on a mission to Italy, avowedly to convert the pope. Perrot passed through Lyons, and on 12 Aug. 1657 he was at Leghorn. There he wrote a treatise concerning the Jews, and both travellers were examined by the inquisition and dismissed. In September, diverging from their original route, they reached Athens, whence Perrot wrote an' Address to the People called Baptists in Ireland.' A manuscript copy is in the library of Devonshire House. He also wrote an epistle to the Greeks from ' Egripos,' that is the island of Negroponte (now called Eubcea).

DESCARTES, René.
Amsterdam: Elzevir, 1659-1661. A fine copy of van Schooten's important second edition of the Geometria, Descartes's magnum opus (DSB), and one of the key texts in the history of mathematics. Descartes' "application of modern algebraic arithmetic to ancient geometry created the analytical geometry which was the basis of the post-Euclidean development of that science" (PMM). It "rendered possible the later achievements of seventeenth-century mathematical physics" (M. B. Hall, Nature and nature's laws (1970), p. 91). "The mathematical community learned about the wealth of Descartes's new ideas through the works of van Schooten ... In the second edition the commentaries were enlarged, and van Schooten included the work by his students van Heuraet, Hudde, Huygens and de Witt. This edition served as the basic textbook for the generation that, in the last quarter of the century, took the lead in introducing differential and integral calculus" (Jahnke). Newton, in particular learnt his Descartes from this edition: "There can be no doubt that Newton read the Géométrie in Schooten's second Latin edition" (Whiteside, Papers I, p. 7, n17). Newton's own heavily annotated copy of this edition is held in Cambridge University Library (NQ.16.203) The Géométrie first appeared (in French) as an appendix to Descartes' Discours de la Méthode (1637). Frans van Schooten (1615-60) first saw the Géométrie at Leiden, as Descartes had come there to supervise the printing of the Discours. Van Schooten published a Latin translation in 1649, adding his own extensive commentary. "The great success of S … [Click Below for Full Description]

(4 ll.), 72 pp. *** First Edition in the original Portuguese, rare. A translation into French had been printed in Paris in 1659. Apparently it is Raisons fort puissantes pour faire voir l'obligation qu'a la France d'appuyer l'intérêt de Portugal dans le traité de la paix, Paris, 1659, of which only one copy seems to exist, at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. D. João da Costa, first Conde de Soure, Ambassador of Portugal to France, had his secretary, Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo, draw up these strenuous objections to France negotiating a separate peace with Spain, shortly prior to the conclusion of the Treaty of the Pyrenees. Cardinal Mazarin was greatly annoyed. In fact the printing of this manifesto in French translation in Paris in 1659 caused such consternation that the Cardinal ordered the imprisonment of the printer and translator; the translator sought asylum in the home of the Portuguese Ambassador.The Treaty of the Pyrenees resulted in withdrawal of France's suppor … [Click Below for Full Description]
