Sumptibus Pauli Principis, 1662. In 4 (cm 21 x 30,5 circa), pp. (10) + 55 + (1 bianca) con 153 tavole incise all'acquaforte (MANCANO: L'ULTIMA TAVOLA, LA No 154, RAFFIGURANTE I POMPIERI, E L'ANTIPORTA). Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con alone al piatto anteriore, forellini di tarlo al piatto anteriore e alle prime 7 carte, gora all'angolo inferiore del frontespizio e delle due carte successive, piccola parte di nastro adesivo a pagina 1, fioriture sparse alle pagine. Edizione originale di quest'opera scientifica sulle macchine, dal ricchissimo corredo iconografico, stampata a Norimberga e scritta da G. A. Bockler, ingegnere e costruttore civile, nato con tutta probabilita' a Strasburgo, attivo a Francoforte e a Norimberga. Boeckler, nel suo "teatro di macchine", mostra innumerevoli varianti della ruota idraulica e delle sue applicazioni, un palcoscenico dove sono passate in rassegna tutti i diversi tipi di leve, ruote dentate, carrucole, paranchi. I teatri di macchine rappresentavano un nuovo modo di pensare, evolutosi nel periodo rinascimentale, secondo il quale i principi matematici potevano essere applicati allo sviluppo di nuove macchine e i successi nel campo della tecnica diventavano d'interesse anche per i nobili e l'alta borghesia.

Eerst in 1553 en na dijkdoorbraak met overstroming opnieuw drooggemaakt in 1597. Aansluitend werd in 1610 de polder Wieringerwaard ingedijkt. Na drooglegging van Wieringerwaard werd de bescherming van de meest westelijke gronden van Het Koegras in gang gezet. In 1610 werd van Groote Keeten tot aan Huisduinen de Oldenbarnevelt dijk (rechts op de kaart aangeduid als Sandt-Dyck van ?t Koegras) gelegd . Deze dijk diende tevens als extra bescherming van de Zijpe en de polder Wieringerwaard, waarvan de noordelijke bedijking bij zware westerstorm werd belaagd door het onstuimige water van de Noordzee.De landeigenaren van de Zijpe en Wieringerwaard, onder ander Amsterdamse kooplieden, maar ook Johan van Oldenbarnevelt, hadden belang bij de bescherming van de vruchtbare gronden van de nieuwe polders.

Sanson d'Abbeville Nicolas
SARL ABRAXAS-LIBRIS, 1662. Condition: Ottime condizioni. MAGNIFICO INSIEME DEI QUATTRO CONTINENTI MAPPATI DAL PRIMO CARTOGRAFO FRANCESE, IN UNO STATO DI FRESCHEZZA INCONTRATA. Quattro piccoli volumi in-4 (18,5 x 25 cm), rilegati in pelle di vitello marrone pieno contemporanea. Gli attacchi sono tutti identici, colonna vertebrale con 5 nervi, titolata, ruote dorate sui tagli. Nicolas Sanson d'Abbeville è considerato il fondatore della cartografia in France . Nel 1627, incontrando Richelieu (venne da Abbeville e si stabilì a Paris ), fu presentato da lui a Luigi XIII, che lo nominò Geografo ordinario del re. Ha mappato quattro continenti (qui presenti: Europa, Asia, Africa e America) ed è stato anche il primo a mappare alcune parti del globo (quindi, ad esempio, la regione dei grandi laghi canadesi, con la sua mappa "Canada o Nuova France " (mappa risalente al 1656)). Fu il primo francese a progettare un piano per un atlante mondiale. Le mappe e il testo di ciascun volume sono completamente a schede. Ogni carta riceve un commento esplicativo, con informazioni sull'economia, gli abitanti e le usanze del paese descritte, prese da autori antichi (Plinio, Strabbon ...), resoconti dei viaggiatori o rapporti sulle missioni dei gesuiti. Inoltre, ciascuna delle mappe presenta i contorni dei paesi o delle regioni in acquerelli. I volumi sono organizzati come segue: L'Europe (senza data): titolo e dedica incisi su doppia pagina, 12 carte doppie e 30 pagine stampate sul davanti. Asia (1662): 108 pagine (con errori noti di crittografia e inversione di pagina) e 17 doppie mappe. Africa (1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sanson d'Abbeville Nicolas
SARL ABRAXAS-LIBRIS, 1662. Condition: Very Good. MAGNIFICENT SET OF FOUR CONTINENTS CARTOGRAPHED BY THE FIRST FRENCH CARTOGRAPHER, IN AN INCOMPARABLE FRESH CONDITION. Four small in-4 volumes (18.5 x 25 cm), bound in full brown calf of the time. The bindings are all identical, back with 5 nerves, titled, golden casters on the cuts. Nicolas Sanson d'Abbeville is considered to be the founder of cartography in France . In 1627, meeting Richelieu (he came from Abbeville and settled in Paris ), he was presented by him to Louis XIII, who named him the Ordinary Geographer of the King. He mapped four continents (here: Europe, Asia, Africa and America), and was even the first to map parts of the globe (such as the Great Lakes region of Canada, with his "Canada or New France " card (card dating from 1656)). He was the first Frenchman to devise the plan for a world atlas. The maps and text of each volume are fully mounted on tabs. Each card receives an explanatory commentary, with information on the economy, the inhabitants and the customs of the described country, drawn from ancient authors (Pliny, Strabbon ...), accounts of travelers or reports of the Jesuit missions. In addition, each of the maps presents the contour plots of the watercolor countries or regions. The volumes are organized as follows: Europe (undated): Title and dedication engraved on double page, 12 double cards and 30 sheets printed on the front. Asia (1662): 108 pages (with known errors in encryption and inversion of sheets) and 17 double cards. Africa (1662): 96 pages and 17 double plates, offering 18 cards (becau … [Click Below for Full Description]

[MANUSCRIPT - NAVIGATION]. [VRIES, Klaas de, and others].
[2 blank], 16, 19-109, [9 blank] pp.A detailed manuscript course in the art of navigation in folio format, with figures in colour, including two volvelles, partly based on the very rare first edition (in 8vo format) of Klaas de Vries (1662-1730), Schat-kamer ofte konst der stier-lieden, (1702; Crone 374), probably in the first issue (not known to survive), before the insertion of an additional quire between B and C. But the manuscript doesn't merely copy the printed book: at least much of the text differs and also at least some of the tabular data, and some of the figures also have no direct equivalents in the printed book (also not in later editions, as far as we have seen). The colour illustrations include a compass rose (13.8 cm diameter) with a ship in the centre, directly copied from the folding engraved plate in De Vries and virtually the same size, but the ship in the centre is copied in mirror image and De Vries's abstract floral decorations in the corners outside the circle are replaced by colour drawings of four different flowers, one in each corner. The manuscript also directly copies De Vries's woodcut illustration of a human hand marked with the numbers "29", "9" and "19" on the thumb and the letters A, B and C next to them, presented as an aid to calculating the epact (the number of days past the new moon on 1 January), but the hand is rotated 180 degrees. Most of the examples of calculations use years in the period 1700-1711, though there are a few later ones (one example uses the year 1809!), which also largely agrees with the 1702 edition of De Vries, thoug … [Click Below for Full Description]

BISSCHOP, Jan].
1662. [8], 460, [12] pp.Rare first known edition of a successful apothecary’s manual for students, written in Dutch, mirroring the general knowledge of pharmacology in the middle of the 17th century. The author of this intriguing book long remained unidentified until his initials "I.B.S.I" (fol.*3v of the 1662 "4th" edition, in the Latin note following the Dutch approbation, both signed from Ghent) identified him as Jan Bisschop S.J. (1590-1664) who worked in Bruges as a pharmacist before he moved to Ghent in 1613 to join the Jesuit order. He trained numerous apprentice pharmacists and later served as official pharmacist at the Vienna court of the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II. His book owed its success above all to its extremely practical approach, including its vast collection of medicinal recipes, many involving distillation.With owner’s inscription of Carolina van de Poel on paste-down. Small tear in vellum of back board, bookblock somewhat loose in binding, no endpapers; frontispiece and first leaves a bit thumbed.

Blaeu-- Joan
"Drentia Comitatus". Kopergravure vervaardigd door Cornelis Pijnacker, uitgegeven door Joan Blaeu tussen 1662-1664. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd, met latere toevoegingen. Afm. 38 x 53 cm.Dat deze kaart tot stand kwam is aan een toeval te danken. Op eigen kracht zou het arme en dunbevolkte gewest niet in staat zijn geweest een dergelijke kaart tot stand te brengen. In 1627 vestigde rechtsgeleerde Cornelis Pijnacker (1570-1645) zich echter in Meppel, die deze kaart van Drenthe in 1634 vervaardigde.Pijnacker had al een lange loopbaan als hoogleraar aan de universiteiten van Leiden en Groningen achter de rug was gezant van de Republiek geweest in Tunis en Algiers. Tijdens zijn laatste gezantschap was hij echter in de financi?le problemen gebracht, onder andere door vrijkopen van Christenslaven. Zijn verblijf in Drenthe, dat negen jaar zou duren, gaf hem gelegenheid zijn zaken weer op orde te brengen. Tijdens dat verblijf gaf hij juridische adviezen en vervaardigde de kaart, die hij vervolgens bij de firma Hondius liet drukken. Henricus Hondius zat in Amsterdam, in de provincie waren de technische mogelijkheden voor het drukken niet aanwezig.Enkele jaren later begon ook de firma Blaeu, de andere grote Amsterdamse uitgever, de kaart in zijn atlassen op te nemen.Het was de eerste goede kaart van de provincie. Voor die tijd werd Drenthe alleen afgebeeld op kaarten van geheel noord Nederland. Die kaarten waren echter kleinschalig en weinig gedetailleerd. Pijnackers kaart daarentegen toonde allerlei landschapsdetails, zoals moerassen, veenontginningen, bossen, heide, wegen, rivier … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John.
Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain. Roger Rea., 1662-1665, English edition.. Copper engraving. Later colour. Good condition. Cut close at left and right hand sides, but enough added margin for mounting and framing. Top margin strengthened. A closed tear (3 inches), runs from the bottom up to the shield of Thomas of Wodstoke on the right. This has an old repair, and is scarcely noticeable. Size: 50 x 38 cm. (19½ x 15 inches) A beautiful map of Buckinghamshire from Speed's Theatre. Inset plans of the market towns of Buckingham and Redding, the latter being a strange choice given that it lies in the county of Berkshire - an indication that the other market towns in Buckinghamshire were not large or prosperous. Embellished with cartouches, cherubs and coats of arms belonging to the titled families of the county. Decorated scale at bottom with dividers above, and compass rose to the right.

Nicholas Culpeper
Peter Cole, London, 1662. A4, C-Bb8 - [24] pp173, 284-398 [16] Early edition of Culpeper's English Physitian, complete as issued less than a decade after the author's death. Bound in contemporary sheep, lower board detached; the remnants of an old paper label to the spine that appears to read 'Vegetable Nat.' The earliest owner seems to have been 'Elizabeth Armitage' whose seventeenth century ownership signature appears on the front pastedown followed by an eighteenth century signature of 'John Phillips' and 'John Faulkner His Book' from the late eighteenth century on the verso of the title page. The text is complete with its erratic pagination; first gathering browned with finger marking and wear to edges of the first couple of leaves. While collating the book the following observations were made: A2 & A3, missing outer corner of leaf at head of page; C7, small chip from foreedge; E5 closed tear to foreedge; G7 old paper repair along foreedge; R4 small chip tail of page. The book has been well read and there is browning throughout with dog-earring to many page corners in use. There is an astrological diagram at p 396. This book is scarce in commerce. Culpeper's astrological herbal was one of the most popular books of its age which went through innumerable reprints and continues to exert its influence to this day.

Theunis, Jacobsz & Lootsman, Jacob and Casparus
Jacques & Gasper Anthoine, Amsterdam, 1662. Rare seachart by Jacobsz Theunis of the North Atlantic, showing prominent Greenland, Iceland and parts of the North American continent. The map is decorated with a large figurative title cartouche in the upper center, as well with compass roses, ships and an allegoric ornated decorative milage scale. ‘Derived from the Goos, 1650, this chart’s progenitor was actually by his father, Theunis Jacobsz, c. 1649. Centred on the North Atlantic, it concentrated on providing information on the approaches to the North West Passage. Terra Nova is omiited as it was on the Goos. At first Jacob adopted his father’s name, being known as Jacob Theunisz. Later with his brother, Caspar, in association, they applied the noun Lootsman to their name to avoid confusion . . In 1666 Jacob Lootsman published the first known edition of the Nieuwe Water-Werelt, Ofte Zee-Atlas, which also encluded this map.’ -Burden #372. A strong impression in excellent condition. 426 by 533mm (16¾ by 21 inches). [Attributes: First Edition]

Modern full brown morocco, faux raised bands, spines lettered in gilt. Scattered foxing, occasional toning, a few leaves shorter, overall very good.- First Spanish illustrated edition of Don Quijote, Cervantes' magnum opus and one of the most influential literary works of all times. First edition of the first part (1662), and second of the second part (1697), virtually identical to the first edition. According to Palau the printed text of the edition of 1697 is the same as the edition of 1662 but issued with a slightly altered title page. Although previous editions had illustrated title pages, properly speaking the first illustrated edition of the Quijote is the Dutch edition of 1657. The engravings of the first part of this 1662 edition are not signed and are generally attributed to Frederick Bouttats and are for the most part copies of the designs of Jacques Savery for the Dutch edition of 1657. The first part contains 8 plates, the second part, here in the 1697 edition, contains 16 plates, 8 of which are the same as those of the 1662 edition. It has, therefore, 8 more plates than the 1662 edition, making a total in the two volumes of 24 plates plus the two engraved frontispieces. The Quijote is arguably the most influential literary work written in Spanish, considered the first modern novel, it transcends language, and sits among … [Click Below for Full Description]

Recueil de diverses pièces, servans à lhistoire de Henry III Roy de France wet de Pologne dont les tiltres se trouvent en la page suivante.Cologne [= Leiden?] Pierre du Marteau [= Jean Elzevier?], 1662. 12mo. 19th-century gold-tooled brown morocco in 17th-century style, each board with the coat-of-arms of Henri III in the centre (the azure represented by black), in a frame of double fillets with corner pieces, gold-tooled spine with the monogram of Henry III in the compartments, gilt edges. 468 pp. One of the earliest (fourth?) and rarest editions, with a false imprint (but probably the second edition by the original publisher), of an infamous collection of memoires or reputed memoires from the reign of King Henri III of France, and an uncommonly ferocious satire of the manners and mores of the court and especially of Henri III and his mother Catherine de Medici, including rather sordid details. The discourse on Catherine de Medici is a violent pamphlet against the Queen, accused of all evils, including responsibility for the religious wars. It may have influenced Alexandre Dumass portrayal of some of these events and royal family members in La Reine Margot (1845), which centres on the Saint Bartholomews Day massacre of 1572, two years before Henri III ascended the throne.Jean Elzevier in Leiden produced the first edition in 1660, using for the first time the false imprint "Cologne, Pierre Marteau" to hide his own identity and that of the author(s) of this "chronique scandaleuse".

The Famous and important 1662 Revised Book of Common Prayer 1662[edit] The 1662 Prayer Book was printed two years after the restoration of the monarchy, following the Savoy Conference between representative Presbyterians and twelve bishops which was convened by Royal Warrant to "advise upon and review the Book of Common Prayer" (Procter & Frere 1965, p. 169,170). Attempts by the Presbyterians, led by Richard Baxter, to gain approval for an alternative service book failed. Their major objections (exceptions) were: firstly, that it was improper for lay people to take any vocal part in prayer (as in the Litany or Lord's Prayer), other than to say "amen"; secondly, that no set prayer should exclude the option of an extempore … [Click Below for Full Description]

Early 19th-century half vellum. 44 [lacking 15-16, 41-44]; 52 [lacking 41-48] pp. Very rare 1662 edition (first issue), in the original Dutch, of an important and influential interpretation of the stories of the Old and New Testament, in the popular form of (originally) 119 engraved illustrations by Pieter van der Borcht (1535-1608), from Mechelen, and explanatory text by the anti-denominational Dutch mystic Hendrik Jansen (van) Barrefelt, also known as "Hiël" (ca. 1530-1594?). Barrefelt initiated two series of engravings for pictorial Bibles around 1582, believing that the contemplation of the biblical images would speak to a wide audience and bring them closer to God, though he also believed that other pictorial Bibles distorted the Bible's meaning. He enlisted Van der Borcht to produce two sets of etched and engraved illustrations of Bible stories and wrote brief commentaries to help people understand the images. Hamilton convincingly argues that the present series B was designed to appeal more to Protestants and the other series A to appeal more to Catholics.

When Coymans schemed to involve the WIC in a war with Denmark in order to benefit this new enterprise and its backers, he found himself charged with treason. ...

De secretis libri XVII. ex variis authoribus collecti, methodicéque digesti, & aucti.Basel, Johannes Rudolphus Genath, 1662. 8vo. With woodcut device on title-page and numerous woodcut illustrations in text. Modern sheepskin parchment. [16], 667, [27], [2 blank] pp. 17th-century edition of a so called "book of secrets", compiled by de Swiss physician Johannes Jacob Wecker (1528-1586). The book opens with a dedicatory letter, followed by an extensive list of authors. The main work is, as the title suggests, divided into 17 "books", each devoted more or less to a different subject. Books of secrets were very popular among common people in the 16th and 17th century, however, this one by Wecker is said to have been owned by most of the professional physicians as well. The work is not simply a pharmacopoeia, though it does include many medical recipes for specific ailments, for example to cure tooth-ache, coughing and bruises. It also includes more practical, everyday "secrets", on how to prevent trees from breaking or how to get rid of aphids on the wall, and cosmetic recipes. These recipes are complemented by more occult passages, on how to light a candle underwater or how to change the white in children's eyes to black. Krivatsy 12627; VD17 23:295006H; cf.

The paper mill shows one man at the vat holding a paper mold, another pressing sheets, sheets hanging to dry, reams tied up for shipment, and in a side panel the water wheel and reams being transported on a donkey's back. There is a stamper in the foreground, and another plate gives a more detailed view of another stamper. With ca. 1800 letterpress bookplate and library stamps.

WECKER, Johannes Jacob.
De secretis libri XVII. ex variis authoribus collecti, methodicéque digesti, & aucti.Basel, Johannes Rudolphus Genath, 1662. 8vo. With woodcut device on title-page and numerous woodcut illustrations in text. Modern sheepskin parchment. [16], 667, [27], [2 blank] pp. 17th-century edition of a so called "book of secrets", compiled by de Swiss physician Johannes Jacob Wecker (1528-1586). The book opens with a dedicatory letter, followed by an extensive list of authors. The main work is, as the title suggests, divided into 17 "books", each devoted more or less to a different subject. Books of secrets were very popular among common people in the 16th and 17th century, however, this one by Wecker is said to have been owned by most of the professional physicians as well. The work is not simply a pharmacopoeia, though it does include many medical recipes for specific ailments, for example to cure tooth-ache, coughing and bruises. It also includes more practical, everyday "secrets", on how to prevent trees from breaking or how to get rid of aphids on the wall, and cosmetic recipes. These recipes are complemented by more occult passages, on how to light a candle underwater or how to change the white in children's eyes to black. Krivatsy 12627; VD17 23:295006H; cf. Thorndike VI, pp. 215-216.

He trained numerous apprentice pharmacists and served later as official pharmacist at the Vienna Court of Emperor Ferdinand II. His book owed its success above all to its extremely practical approach, containing also a vast collection of medical (distillery) recipes.Bisschops book probably was first published anonymously at Ghent in 1653, but no copy is known.

He was the most prolific of the group of philosophical divines known now as the Cambridge Platonists. He was also a theologian of tolerant stamp who was regarded as a founder of the broad-church movement nicknamed latitudinarianism. His religious convictions were formed in reaction to the strict Calvinism of his upbringing. In the autobiographical preface to his Opera omnia he records his horror when still a boy at school at the Calvinist doctrine of predestination. His philosophical preference for Platonism was formed later, after a period of intense study while still an undergraduate, which nearly resulted in a sceptical crisis.In 1662 More published a collected edition of his philos … [Click Below for Full Description]
