        Heerlijkheid Bergen - Blaeu, ca. 1665.

      DE HEERLIJKHEID BERGEN?Territorii Bergensis accuratissima descriptio?, kopergravure van de Heerlijkheid Bergen uitgegeven door Joan Blaeu tussen 1662-1672 als onderdeel van een Spaanstalige editie van de Atlas Maior, in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca.: 42 x 56 cm.?Zeer nauwkeurige tekening van het gebied van Bergen? luidt de titel van deze kaart. Terecht, want niemand minder dan Johannes Dou, de landmeter van Rijnland, een specialist op het gebied van driehoeksmeting, heeft het gebied opgemeten en in kaart gebracht. Onderaan de prent zien we Dou en twee assistenten in de weer met een meetketting en andere landmeetinstrumenten.Joan Blaeu heeft de kaart in koper laten snijden en uitgegeven met een opdracht aan Ridder Antonius Studler die de Heerlijkheid Bergen in 1643 had gekocht.Blaeu stond een internationaal publiek voor ogen toen hij vanaf 1662 zijn beroemdste werk, de Atlas Maior publiceerde.

Het is de grootste wereldatlas die ooit werd gepubliceerd. De verschijning ervan vormt de bekroning van de gouden eeuw van de Nederlandse cartografie, een tijdvak van ongekende bloei, dat samenvalt met de enorme opleving van de handel en de daarmee gepaard gaande rijkdom en welvaart in vooral de eerste helft van de zeventiende eeuw.De kaart van Bergen komt alleen voor in de Blaeu's grote Atlas Maior en niet in eerdere/andere atlassen.

      BLAEU?S FAMOUS WORLD MAP?Nova Et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula.? Copper engraving with original hand colouring from the ?Atlas Maior? published by Joan Blaeu in Amsterdam, 1662. Size: 40,0 x 54,0 cm (plus margins). Very nice copy.The last world map to be published under the Blaeu imprint. This map is the spectacular fronticepiece of the great cartographic work of the 17th century, Joan Bleau?s Grand Atlas. Galileo overlooks the Western Hemisphere, Tycho Brahe, the teacher of Joan Bleau?s father, is depicted on the right. On the west of North America is the mysterious ?Island? of California.?This new world map prepared by Joan Blaeu for his eleven-volume Atlas Maior in 1662 is, unlike its predecessor with its marginal city views and native peoples, in two hemispheres. As with all productions by the firm of Blaeu, the engraving and layout and elegance of decoration are of the highest standard.Outside the twin hemispheres at the top we see the classical gods that personify each planet and Apollo, the Sun. Each planetary deity is portrayed with his astrological attributes: Mercury with flying cap and caduceus; Venus with cupid at her side; Mars armed for battle; Jupiter with thunderbolts; and Saturn brooding and holding a flag of a six pointed star. At the base are four allegorical personifications of the seasons, each on a chariot. All of which place Earth in a larger context and make the map a celebration of the Western European scientific and exploratory achievements.The fire of 1672 ravaging the Blaeu publishing house, put an end of Blaeu?s production of their Atlas Maior with this particular world map. It is therefore much rarer than Blaeu?s earlier world map in Mercator projection.Reference: The Mapping of the World, Early Printed World Maps - Rodney Shirley (1984) no. 428, plate 315.Framed in a tasteful and high quality wooden frame, using protective museum glass.Price: ?22.500,-.

      Leyde, J. Chouet, 1662. ____ Illustré par 3 planches dépliantes. Une charnière fendillée. Bon exemplaire.***** First edition. Stensen stated that the true purpose of the glands was to secrete fluid. "This discovery led Stensen to consider every fluid in the body as a glandular secretion. He then found a series of glands furnishing fluid to each of the body cavities. He likewise sought the afferent and efferent ducts of secretion. Stensen still used the name "lymph" for all watery glandular secretions, because he was not yet able to differentiate between them and to specify them chemically and physiologically. In the course of this basic research Stensen presented in his Leiden dissertation new discoveries of glands in the cheeks; beneath the tongue; and in the palate, whose structure of veins, arteries, nerves, and lymph vessels he also described. In his Observationes anatomicae (1662), dealing with his new discoveries concerning the glands, he described the lachrymal apparatus in great detail." DSB 13, 33. Garrisson & Morton 973. Norman 2010.

        Canibales Insulae

      1662. BLAEU, Willem. Canibales Insulae. [Amsterdam: Johannes Blaeu, 1662]. Original engraving on laid sheet (image measures 21 by 16 inches), handsomely framed (entire piece measures 29-1/2 by 25-1/2 inches). $1700.Large original hand-colored Blaeu map of the Canibales Insulae (the Lesser Antilles) from the famous Atlas Major (1662), its first appearance.In 1630, Willem Janzzon Blaeu, the official cartographer of the Dutch East India Company, published his first world atlas, the Atlantis Appendix, with 60 maps. The ensuing series of Blaeu atlases reached their grand culmination in 1662— in the monumental 12-volume Atlas Major, “the greatest and finest atlas ever published” (Koeman). All Blaeu maps are embellished in the ornate Baroque style, and many rank among the most beautiful ever made. They “epitomize the ‘golden age of Dutch cartography” (Potter, 41). This splendid map is the first Dutch map devoted solely to the Lesser Antilles. It comes from the first Latin edition of the Atlas Major, Volume 11 (America), and appeared here for the first time— making it relatively scarce. The map covers the windward and leeward islands from eastern Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands to Trinidad and the Venezuelan coast. The title Canibales Insulae (Islands of the Cannibals) reflects the European image of the mysterious islands of the New World, created by contemporary accounts of savage Caribbean warriors who devour their captives. Shirley I, 241. Koeman I, 199-202. Fine condition, with only a bit of offsetting from being folded. Handsomely framed.

        New Experiments physico-mechanical, touching the Spring of the Air, and its Effects; A Defence of the Doctrine touching the Spring and Weight of the Air ... against the objections of Franciscus Linus; An Examen of Mr. T Hobbes his Dialogus Physicus de naturci aeris.

      Oxford: H. Hall for T. Robinson [and London: J.G. for Thomas Robinson], 1662. Second edition, containing the first announcement of Boyle's law. This second edition is "particularly important for what Boyle called an 'hypothesis' but what we know as 'Boyle's Law': that the volume of air in a confined space varies inversely as the pressure. He demonstrated this by much experimental detail: with experiments on rarefaction performed by others, including Hooke, and on compression performed by himself" (PMM). Boyle's law is stated in the second part of this edition, his Defence against the attacks of Linus on the first edition of this work (1660). "In the first edition of the New Experiments (1660), Boyle had published his experiments proving that (1) air has weight and exerts pressure; (2) the phenomena associated with suction pumps and siphoning are caused by the evacuation of air; (3) air is necessary for life, flame and the transmission of sound; and (4) air is permanently elastic. These statements were attacked by many critics, whom Boyle refuted in an appendix to the second edition, a chapter of which describes the experimental attempts to measure atmospheric pressure that led to the formulation of Boylc's Law" (Norman). "Boyle had long been interested in the air, partly in connection with the Oxford physiologists' concern with the nature of respiration, and partly because of the extent to which air might account for phenomena like solidification, which he had observed in 'The History of Fluidity and Firmness' in Certain Physiological Essays. Hence he was intrigued by Otto von Guericke's use, in Germany, of a pump comprising a cylinder and a piston for the evacuation of copper spheres: these trials suggested how one might produce a larger vacuum chamber than seemed possible from the deployment of the space which was left when a mercury column fell due to atmospheric pressure, as demonstrated in a famous experiment by the Italian savant Evangelista Torricelli. Guericke's own apparatus proved defective from Boyle's point of view, since the receiver was opaque and hence nothing could be inserted in it and observed under experimental conditions; nevertheless this apparatus inspired him to commission the production of an improved design, first from the London instrument-maker Ralph Greatorex and then from his own assistant, Robert Hooke. Greatorex failed but Hooke brilliantly succeeded, illustrating the extraordinarily inventive talent he was to display for the rest of his career. Early in 1659, Hooke produced an apparatus comprising a brass cylinder with milled valves mounted on a wooden frame. Above this was a glass globe with an opening at the top which could be sealed as required; thus it made it possible to insert objects into the receiver (as it was called) and to examine the effect on them of the withdrawal of air, which was carried out by cranking the valved cylinder. By using this instrument with Hooke's help, Boyle carried out his epoch-making experiments on the nature of air, mainly at Oxford in the spring, summer and autumn of 1659. "Boyle carried out some forty-three experiments, the narratives of which were included in his published book [New Experiments Physico-Mechanicall, Touching The Spring and Weight of the Air, London, 1660]. Some of them were fairly straightforward, others less so, but all were striking for their vivid demonstration of the physical properties of air. They also illustrate Boyle's extraordinary ingenuity in devising trials which would reveal significant information about the phenomena under scrutiny, which we have already encountered. The most important of the experiments, to which a substantial part of the book was devoted, were those which demonstrated that air might have a 'spring' -- an idea which had been canvassed earlier in the seventeenth century but had never been proved. Many of Boyle's experiments showed the capacity of air to exert pressure and to expand: for instance, when a vial partially filled with water was placed in the receiver and the air around it pumped out, the vessel exploded, cracking the receiver itself. Other experiments showed the extent to which diverse phenomena were dependent on air. When a Torricellian barometer was sealed in the receiver and the air evacuated, the level of the mercury fell, as Boyle illustrated to various of his Oxford colleagues. Sound failed to travel through the evacuated receiver, and combustion was extinguished in it. "Each of these findings was painstakingly expounded in the book, and Boyle also devoted 'digressions' to various issues, for instance 'whether or no Air may be generated anew', while towards the end of the work there was a lengthy excursus on respiration and the role of air in relation to it, reflecting the interest in this topic of members of the Oxford group earlier in the 1650s. Boyle did not pretend that all of the phenomena that he observed were easily explicable, and much space was devoted to analysing them and to expounding the theories of previous authors who had considered such phenomena and their explanation -- especially French natural philosophers like Pierre Gassendi, Rene Descartes, Marin Mersenne, Jean Pecquet, Gilles Personne de Roberval and Blaise Pascal. In addition, at every point Boyle considered Aristotelian theories about the nature of the air, and particularly scholastic explanations based on the view that nature abhorred a vacuum and hence that many of the phenomena he observed were the result of nature's attempts to prevent such an outcome. The result was one of the most seminal and innovative works of the scientific revolution. As the Halifax natural philosopher Henry Power put it: 'I never read any such Tractate in all my life, wherein all things are so curiously and critically handled, the Experiments so judiciously and accurately tried, and so candidly and intelligibly delivered' ... "The most significant institution with which Boyle became associated at this point was the Royal Society, the first public institution devoted to the pursuit of scientific research, which was consciously 'established' in 1660 with aspirations to permanence and was to go on to become the premier institution of British science. An important role in founding the society was played by men with whom Boyle had been associated at Oxford in the 1650s, including John Wilkins (who had moved to Cambridge in 1659 and had become Dean of Ripon in 1660); also important were members of the royal court such as Viscount Brouncker and Sir Robert Moray. Boyle himself played an inspirational role through his writings, notably his recently published New Experiments Touching the Spring of the Air, which seemed to exemplify the experimental philosophy to which the new body was devoted. "The Royal Society's inaugural meeting took place on 28 November 1660 at Gresham College, an educational institution in the City of London founded in the Elizabethan period, following a lecture by Christopher Wren, by then Professor of Astronomy there. Boyle was in attendance on this occasion and he was at many of the society's early meetings, though the fact that his main place of residence continued to be Oxford meant that he played a less central role in the institutional life of the society than its London based fellows. In view of the fact that New Experiments had appeared only a few months earlier, it is hardly surprising to find Boyle being asked to demonstrate pneumatic experiments at various meetings of the society in the early months of 1661, and on 15 May 1661 he presented the society with an air-pump. Indeed, the gadget became something of an emblem of the society and of the enterprise to which it was devoted, and its symbolic significance is illustrated by the fact that a modified version of it is depicted on the frontispiece of Thomas Sprat's promotional History of the Royal Society, begun in 1664 and published in 1667 -- a work consciously intended to promote the new body and the ends for which it had been founded. "The import of the association with the air-pump for the Royal Society -- and for Boyle -- became all the clearer during 1661, when various books were published commenting on New Experiments, hence adding to its notoriety. One such book was written by Boyle's own assistant, Robert Hooke: An Attempt for the Explication of the Phaenomena, Observable in an Experiment Published by the Honourable Robert Boyle, Esq. This was a kind of gloss on Boyle's work which offered an explanation of capillary action as observed in experiment 35 there. More troubling were two books which made an outright assault on the claims Boyle had put forward: Thomas Hobbes' Physical Dialogue, or a Conjecture about the Nature of the Air taken up from the Experiments recently made in London at Gresham College, published in August 1661, and Francis Linus' Treatise on the Inseparable Nature of Bodies, published in the same year, in which, as its subtitle promised, 'the vacuum experiments of Torricelli, von Guericke and Boyle are examined, their true explanations given, and consequently it is shown that a vacuum cannot be produced naturally, and so Aristotle's teaching on rarefaction is upheld.' Boyle seems quickly to have felt the need to respond to the challenge which these books presented -- to him and, as Hobbes' title showed, by extension, to the Royal Society. In October 1661, he therefore set to work on replies to them, which were published as a combined volume in 1662, in conjunction with a second edition of his original book in a new, matching format. "Like Boyle, we will deal with the two critiques separately, starting with that of Linus. Linus was an English Jesuit who had spent many years teaching at the English College of Liège, although by this time he had returned to England. He was a committed Aristotelian, and the thrust of his book was to defend the Aristotelian axiom that nature abhors a vacuum. But, like many Jesuit scientists, he had a keen interest in experiment, commenting at length on Boyle's and recounting his own attempt to replicate the famous trial made by Florin Périer at the behest of Blaise Pascal in 1648, when he took a barometer up a mountain and observed its changed behaviour at an increased altitude. On the other hand, the conclusions he drew from the phenomena observed were resolutely Aristotelian, the most novel being that there was a kind of invisible thread or 'funiculus' which occupied the space above the mercury column in a barometer and accounted for the recorded effects. Boyle's response, entitled A Defence of the Doctrine Touching the Spring and Weight of the Air ... Against the Objections of Franciscus Linus, Wherewith the Objector's Funicular Hypothesis is also Examin'd, was polite but firm; it praised Linus for his interest in experiments but insisted that defects in his actual experimental practice negated the conclusions he drew from them, particularly Linus' funicular hypothesis as against Boyle's mechanistic one. Boyle also adduced new findings which, he claimed, reinforced his original claims, particularly by using a J-shaped tube in conjunction with a long pipette to illustrate the correlation between the compression and rarefaction of air and its volume, demonstrating (in his own words) that 'the pressures and expansions [are] in reciprocal proportion' -- in other words that the relationship between the volume of air and the pressure it is under is a constant. This relation has long been known as Boyle's Law. "This claim, adumbrated for the first time in Defence (on the basis of a table of findings presented to the Royal Society on 2 October 1661), has been the subject of much controversy. In formulating it, Boyle drew on experiments on related topics carried out by the natural philosophers Richard Towneley and Henry Power in the north of England, which he duly acknowledged although rightly taking the credit for the claim he made on their basis. In addition, his own findings undoubtedly owed much to his assistant Robert Hooke, who was in fact the author of a whole section of the book -- the appended 'Explication of Rarefaction' -- though through a printer's error he failed to be given due credit for it; Boyle pointed out this fact to the Dutch natural philosopher Christiaan Huygens and to others interested in the matter. On balance, it seems right that the law should be attributed to Boyle. Since Towneley and Power had failed to draw out the implications of their initial findings, Boyle legitimately felt that the matter needed to be further investigated before a definitive conclusion could be reached. As for Hooke, he was of course working as Boyle's assistant at the time, but there is no reason to doubt that the error over the attribution of 'An Explication of Rarefaction' really was the printer's -- had it not been for that, Hooke would effectively have been presented as Boyle's co-author -- and there seems little doubt that Boyle already regarded Hooke as intellectually his equal, if not his superior in some respects. Yet here, too, there seems no doubt that Boyle was the one who inspired and supervised the exercise as a whole" (Hunter, Boyle, pp. 124-134).

        Istria olim Iapidia

      Johannes Blaeu, Amsterdam - This beautiful circa 1662 map by Johannes Blaeu features the region of Istria, the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. Oriented with north to the left, extends from the Gulf of Trieste to the Island of Cres in the Adriatic Sea to include part of Italy and Croatia. As a part of the Venetian Republic, this region contained many important sea ports that are highlighted on the map. The important regions of Istria (Trieste) and Pula are identified. The map also labels lakes, rivers and other topographic features with beautifully rendered mountains and forests.An elaborate title cartouche features men in armor and a winged lion. The scale cartouche is illustrated with winged mer folk, while a ship sails the Adriatic Sea. In good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold. Original plate mark is visible. Minor foxing.One of the most prolific Dutch mapmakers of his time, Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu and his family worked out of Amsterdam and was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons. This series was published by his son Johannes (c. 1599-1673), who took over the business upon his father's death. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 14.75" x 19.5".

        Interest van Holland, ofte gronden van Hollands-welvaren. Aangewezen door V.D.H.

      Amsterdam: Joan. Cyprianus vander Gracht, 1662 - Octavo (152 x 95 mm), pp. [16], 267, [5]. Contemporary vellum covered boards. Vellum a little soiled, small diminishing pale ink stain to the upper margin through most of the book; a crisp, clean copy. Small private ownership stamp to front free endpaper, early ownership inscription to the title. First edition, the octavo issue. "The only Dutch bestseller, this work is mainly an argument for industrial freedom plus moderate duties" (Carpenter), comparable and in some respects superior to Roger Coke's of 1670 and 1675, the merit of which consists chiefly in its freedom from errors of reasoning. De la Court "would have to be ranked very high in a history of economic thought or policy" (Schumpeter). The work had been circulated in manuscript and was published, without de la Court's permission, by De Witt, who made alterations and added two important chapters.

        Plato und seine Schüler im Garten der Akademie.

      - Radierung, 1662, auf Bütten, mit Wasserzeichen. 45,8:27,3 cm.- Mit mehreren geglätteten Falten und mehreren Löchlein im breiten Rand, alter Schmutzstreifen im oberen Drittel der Darstellung. Literatur: Nagler Monogrammisten 3; Bartsch 3; Bozzolato 82; Wallace, II, 109. Der als Malerpoet des italienischen Seicento geltende Maler, Radierer, Dichter und Musiker wurde als Sohn des Feldmessers Vito Antonio Rosa und der Giulia, Tochter des Malers Vito Greco und Schwester des Malers Ant. Domen. Greco in Aranella bei Neapel geboren. Bei seinem Onkel kam Rosa mit 17 in die Lehre. Mit seiner ungewöhnlich frühreifen und selbständigen Begabung, fiel er schon früh durch stimmungsvolle Landschaften aus der Umgebung von Neapel auf. 1635 geht der junge Mann nach Rom und erhält Aufträge, muß aber krankheitshalber 1636 wieder nach Neapel zurückkehren. Seit 1639 wieder in Rom als vielbeschäftigter Maler von Schlachtenbildern, Seestücken und Landschaften tätig. Auch als Dichter und Schauspieler tritt er auf, u.a. produziert er sich mit einer improvisierten Satire gegen den großen Bernini vor der Porta di Popolo in Rom. Die Antwort Berninis fällt so scharf aus, daß Rosa froh war, einem Ruf des Hofes von Florenz folgen zu können. In Florenz wird er Mittelpunkt der literarisch und künstlerisch interessierten Kreise und steht mit seinen Werken auf der vollen Höhe des Erfolges. Dennoch zieht es ihn nach Rom zurück, wo er 1649 wieder eintrifft. Diese letzte römische Phase ist charakterisiert durch den Versuch Rosas sich als Schöpfer monumentaler Historien- und Altarbilder durchzusetzen, auch in seinen Landschaften und Schlachtengemälden tritt eine Tendenz zu größerer Monumentalität ein. 1672 schwer erkrankt, stirbt er 1673 nach langem Krankenlager.

        MADAGASCAR: INSULA S. LAURENTII, VULGO MADAGASCAR.

      Amsterdam [ff] 1662 - Copper engraving with original colour and gold highlights (Very Good, slightly stained), 56 x 63,5 cm (22 x 25 inches). A map of Madagascar with stunning original colour and gold highlights. An originally coloured map of Madagascar with gold highlights was published in Atlas Maior by Joan Blaeu. The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century - Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon Willem’s return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which led the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. The VOC would be one of Blaeu’s anchor clients and in 1633 he was appointed the Company’s official hydrographer. Blaeu’s sea atlas of European waters, Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608) was revolutionary, being the first broadly accurate maritime atlas. He went on to create magnificent wall maps, large-format charts and eventually terrestrial atlases, all decorated with the finest Dutch Baroque artistry. In particular, thePascaarte van alle de Zecusten van Europa (1621) helped to establish Blaeu’s supremacy in the highly competitive Dutch cartography market. Towards the end of his life, Willem Blaeu published the Atlas Novus (1635), a grand production that would be progressively expanded to include new volumes featuring all of the known world in unprecedented detail. The work featured numerous maps, exemplified by the present map, based on carefully selected sources and designed in the finest manner of the contemporary Dutch Baroque style. They became iconic works of cartography readily recognizable to generations of observers. The Atlas Novus and its successor publications were issued in 5 languages and became the most commercially successful works of their kind, setting a new standard for map publishing, emulated by cartographers across Europe. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) was the most successful mapmaker in the world in the mid-17th Century, during the apogee of Dutch cartography and the fortunes of the Dutch Republic. While he inherited a splendid enterprise from his father Willem, he managed to dramatically grow and expand the business to new heights. His greatest achievement was the world’s largest and most sumptuous atlas, the Atlas Maior, an 11-12 volume Baroque masterpiece (and successor to the Atlas Novus), in which editions of the present map appeared. The Blaeu firm flourished until its workshop was destroyed in a fire in 1672, ending almost three generations of hegemony over the map market. While many would try to emulate the Blaeu’s success, this was never accomplished, and the Blaeu name stands alone at the fore of the Golden Age of Dutch cartography.

        Interest van Holland, ofte gronden van Hollands-welvaren. Aangewezen door V.D.H.

      Amsterdam: Joan. Cyprianus vander Gracht,, 1662. Octavo (152 x 95 mm), pp. [16], 267, [5]. Contemporary vellum covered boards. Small private ownership stamp to front free endpaper, early ownership inscription to the title. Vellum a little soiled, small diminishing pale ink stain to the upper margin through most of the book; a crisp, clean copy. First edition, the octavo issue. "The only Dutch bestseller, this work is mainly an argument for industrial freedom plus moderate duties" (Carpenter), comparable and in some respects superior to Roger Coke's of 1670 and 1675, the merit of which consists chiefly in its freedom from errors of reasoning. De la Court "would have to be ranked very high in a history of economic thought or policy" (Schumpeter). The work had been circulated in manuscript and was published, without de la Court's permission, by De Witt, who made alterations and added two important chapters.

        Rump: Or an Exact Collection Of the Choycest Poems and Songs relating to the Late Times. By the most Eminent Wits, from Anno 1639 to Anno 1661.

      London Printed for Henry Brome. and Henry Marsh. 1662 - 8vo, 165 x 95 mms., pp. [viii], 376, 72, 83-200, including vertical half-title leaf, engraved frontispiece, engraved title-page, finely bound in 19th century dark green crushed morocco, panelled in gilt on covers, with second enclosed panel with triangular filigree designs in each corner, spine richly gilt in compartments, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt, marbled end-papers. A fine and attractive copy. Alexander Brome (1620 - 1666) was a poet and lawyer, and the title of this collection derives from the so-called "Rump Parliament," which followed the purging of the Long Parliament in 1648. The collection began life as short collection (89 pages) of poems published as Ratts Rhymed to Death in 1660, and reprinted the same year. The present text is obviously much enlarged, with many new poems, including twenty by John Cleveland. The poems in the second part are distinguished, if that's the right word, by their scatological and lubricious content, with obvious jokes and puns around the title word, e. g., "Bum=Fodder or, Waste-Paper, proper to wipe the Nations RUMP with, or your Own." Most of the songs were designed to be sung, with a number giving a tune. "The four Legg'd Elder; or a Relation of a Horrible Dog and an Elders Maid" is to be sung "To the Tune of The Ladies fall; Or Gather your Rose Buds, and 50 other Tunes." How many of these tunes have survived? Samuel Pepys, in an entry for 23 April 1660, alludes to a Rump song: having listened to a composition by Matthew Locke, his host "fell to singing of a song made upon the Rump, with which he pleased himself well - to the tune of The Blacksmith."

Il Vol. VIII, da noi messo in vendita e dedicato interamente all'Italia, si presenta nella sua bella rilegatura originale olandese, prodotta dalla bottega dell'Autore, il quale, oltre a vendere strumenti scientifici, globi e mappe, era anche editore e incisore.
