Blaeu, Joan (1596-1673)
Amsterdam: Joan Blaeu, 1662. SET OF 4 Each measuring: 21 x 24 1/2" Hand-colored copper-plate engravings Joan Blaeu, born in Alkmarr in 1598, was the eldest child of Willem Jaszoon Blaeu, philosopher and pupil of famed astronomer Tycho Brahe, and his wife, Marretgen Conelisd. In 1599, Willem Blaeu, a globe and instrument maker, moved with his family to Amsterdam, where he opened a printing house specializing in maritime publications, but which also published works on literature, art, and theology. Joan was a student in Leiden from 1616 to 1619, after which he toured Europe for a year, a luxury often taken by the children of wealthy parents. It was not until 1630 that Joan Blaeu began to play an active position in the printing house, taking on the role of partner with his father. In 1638 Willem died, and Joan took charge of the large printing house. At this time he was also appointed cartographer to the Dutch East India Company. From 1636 to 1650, Amsterdam flourished politically, economically, and culturally. Trade with Asia and the Americas brought prosperity, and there were many new advances in the arts and sciences. During this period, Blaeu, who was deeply involved in the political, economic, and cultural life of his time, expanded the printing house and printed innumerable books, maps, and globes. In 1662, Blaeu published Atlas Major, the world's largest atlas, which contained six hundred maps that portrayed the entire known world of the 17th century, including legendary lands, exotic kingdoms, and distant empires. These maps were elegantly decorated and embellished … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sowohl seine wissenschaftlichen Leistungen wie auch der Anspielungsreichtum, die Verspieltheit und Ironie seines literarischen Werks machten ihn zu einem der bedeutendsten Vertreter der Kultur unter den Ptolemäern in Ägypten und des Hellenismus überhaupt.- "An excellent and erudite edition: the first volume presents us with the notes of Theodore Graevius, the Greek Scholia (in each page) of Robortellus, H.

MENDO, Andrés (1608-1684)
Lyon: en Leon de Francia, a costa de Horacio Boissat y George Remeus, 1662. 4to.; 21 hs., 184 pp. + 56 pp. + 56 pp. + 111 pp. Ejemplar falto de portada, pero con los 80 emblemas grabados, al comienzo de cada capítulo, con buenos márgenes y en buen estado de conjunto. Encuadernación de época en piel, ligeramente fatigada. Uno de los textos políticos mas interesantes del Siglo de Oro. La presente es la tercera impresión, idéntica a la segunda de 1661, a excepción de la dedicatoria, esta vez dirigida a Alonso Pérez de Guzmán, Patriarca de las Indias, de quien Mendo era Capellán. Es significativo de su rareza el hecho de que hasta nuestros dias la obra del jesuíta Andrés Mendo siga sin gozar de una edición crítica y de un estudio riguroso que revele la verdadera hermenéutica del texto.

[Hill, William]:
London. 1662.. [14],80pp. Small quarto. 20th-century red half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Light foxing and toning. Last few leaves lightly dampstained at bottom edge; final five leaves with some loss to bottom margin, minutely affecting a few words of text. Good. First edition of this astonishing narrative, laying out a plot by a New Englander living in London to murder King Charles II and re- establish Cromwellian rule. Largely given in cued dialogue, as furnished by a courtroom shorthand reporter, this work recounts the narrative of a plot on the King's life by Captain John Baker, "then living in East- Smithfield, formerly of New- England." Baker was an old adherent of Hugh Peter, or Peters, executed for regicide sympathies in 1660. William Hill, author and informer for this work, encountered Baker in the streets of London and describes him as "but an illiterate and rough-hewn fellow," though capable of great mischief, for "in New- England he might be sufficiently possessed with villainous principles;" thus, Hill decides that he will "modestly put my self upon the sifting of him." This led to hints of a plot to seize and murder the King, slaughter "those Rogues at Whitehall," and restore a "Godly Party" of former Cromwellians to power. Professing complicity, Hill met with conspirators over the next two weeks - mostly disaffected military veterans and seamen, some with New England connections - in private chambers and taverns, where logistics for arming the rebellion were deliberated. All the while, however, Hill was in contact with Sir Richard Brown, a gov … [Click Below for Full Description]

Engraved titlepage +[26] +388pp +[3]pp index. Small archival repair to margin of TP (no involvement of print), ownership stamp (faint & hard to read) on pastedown and nice ownership inscription of an Avignon medical doctor dated 1676 on flyleaf. *Harvey's fundamental work on embryology and endocrinology which, if he had not discovered the circulation of the blood would alone have ensured his fame. All earlier theories of reproduction were based on Aristotelian and Galenic medicinal teaching but Harvey's researches on chicken and deer embryos proved to his satisfaction that semen fertilized the ovum and that spontaneous generation was without foundation. He also explained growth and differentiation of organs and opposed the doctrine of pre-formation. "The most important book on the subject to appear during the 17th century" (Garrison-Morton. Cf.

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.

[s.l.: s.n], 1662. Second edition (enlarged). [40], 118, [1]. 1 vols. Small 4to. Contemporary vellum, remnant of leather spine label. Covers and spine a little soiled. Second edition (enlarged). [40], 118, [1]. 1 vols. Small 4to. The Pagan Rites of the Church. The dedication, to Charles II, King of England is new to this edition, and is signed "Jonas Porrée", to whom Barbier therefore attributes the authorship, even though Porrée in his dedication maintains that the author is anonymous and claims only to have added some illustrations and examples to the text of the first edition (Amsterdam, 1646). The author attempts to trace the origins of rites of the Roman Catholic Church, linking them to pagan rituals, in an attempt to undermine the authority of the Church. This edition of 1662 was doubtless the text which Thomas Douglas used for his English translation of 1668 [Wing P-2980]. Signed on the fornt cover in ink by the nephew of SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE, "Francis George Coleridge / The Manor House / 1843". Francis George Coleridge was the son of Samuel Taylor's brother, James Coleridge. Barbier IV: 773e

One of the most important Chivalry Orders of Spain, the Order of Alc?ara was founded in 1154 in Leon under the name of Orden de San Juli?de Pereiro. It´s history is deeply linked to that of the Muslims in Spain. In the early 13th century, the defense of the city of Alc?ara was passed on from Calatrava to the recently founded Order of San Juli?by Alphonse IX. The relevance of this Orders –along with that of Santiago and Calatrava-, is mainly military, this, because the middle ages lacked of standing armies and this Orders provided that. In fact, the constant defense of cities from the Muslims was usually provided by these Orders. Bound –as often- with Privilegia Militae Sancti Iuliani de Pereiro. The Orders, besides the obvious military character, also were Religious Orders, and amongst their goals, the preservation and defense of the Christian faith was found. Illustrated with an oval portrait of Phillip II on title page and a full page image of the Virgin. Salva, 1590.

Speed, John (1552-1629)
London: John Speed, 1662. THE 1662 EDITION OF JOHN SPEED'S MAP OF AMERICA-A RARE SURVIVOR OF LONDON'S GREAT FIRE Copperplate engraving with original hand-color Frame size: 28" x 33 ½" Paper size: 16 ½" x 22" State 3: 1662 References: P. D. Burden, The Mapping of North America (Rickmansworth England, 1996), Entry 217; and G. McLaughlin & N. H. Mayo, The Mapping of California as an Island: An Illustrated Checklist (Saratoga, 1995), no. 3. English mapmaker John Speed was one of the most famous cartographers and historians of the seventeenth century. The son of a London tailor, Speed practiced his father's trade until a wealthy patron, Sir Greville, gave him the financial support to pursue his interests in antiquities, genealogies, and cartography. Speed's maps are among the most valuable and sought after due to his expertise and keen eye for detail. Speed is best known for his two impressive atlases, Theatre of the Empire of Great Brittaine, an atlas of the British Isles first published in 1611, and A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World, both of which were the foremost atlases of the seventeenth century. Although A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World was published separately from Theatre of the Empire of Great Brittaine, the two atlases are often bound together. . Book.

[Porrée, Jonas]
[s.l: s.n], 1662. Second edition (enlarged). [40], 118, [1]. 1 vols. Small 4to. The Pagan Rites of the Church. The dedication, to Charles II, King of England is new to this edition, and is signed "Jonas Porrée", to whom Barbier therefore attributes the authorship, even though Porrée in his dedication maintains that the author is anonymous and claims only to have added some illustrations and examples to the text of the first edition (Amsterdam, 1646). The author attempts to trace the origins of rites of the Roman Catholic Church, linking them to pagan rituals, in an attempt to undermine the authority of the Church. This edition of 1662 was doubtless the text which Thomas Douglas used for his English translation of 1668 [Wing P-2980]. Signed on the fornt cover in ink by the nephew of SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE, "Francis George Coleridge / The Manor House / 1843". Francis George Coleridge was the son of Samuel Taylor's brother, James Coleridge. Barbier IV: 773e. Contemporary vellum, remnant of leather spine label. Covers and spine a little soiled.

All earlier theories of reproduction were based on Aristotelian and Galenic medicinal teaching but Harvey's researches on chicken and deer embryos proved to his satisfaction that semen fertilized the ovum and that spontaneous generation was without foundation. He also explained growth and differentiation of organs and opposed the doctrine of pre-formation. "The most important book on the subject to appear during the 17th century" (Garrison-Morton. Cf.

BLAEU, Jan (1596-1673)
Amsterdam: Jan Blaeu, [1662]. Copper-engraved map, with original colour. Latin text on verso. Skillful marginal repair to center fold. 19 1/2 x 24 inches. An aesthetic chord of triumph and the culmination of Dutch cartography. This is the new world map prepared by Blaeu for the eleven volume Atlas Maior of 1662. Unlike its predecessor with its marginal city views and native peoples, this is a double hemispheric map with 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 (a symbol in Saturn worship). Just below to the left and right are portraits of Claudius Ptolemy and Amerigo Vespucci. At the base are the four allegorical personifications of the seasons, each on a chariot. All of which place Earth in a larger astrological and temporal context, and make the map an exaltation of the Western European achievements. This was the key to Blaeu's Great Atlas: the culminating work of 100 years of Dutch cartography and 300 years of European seafaring. It is surely one of the most beautiful world maps ever made.

The author's first book. Rare, the OCLC locates just three copies, the UCLA copy in the US and SRT and ZBU in France.

In 1658 she met Antoine de Boessert, her life time love, and signed a promise to marry him before he left for active duty. Her plays were produced by Moliere and she took on the name Madame de Villedieu. From 1669 she was a prolific author and later, weary of the world, she sought asylum in a convent. She wed a wealthy older man in 1677 and after bearing him a son retired to her country estate. This is a collection of poetry dedicated to the Duchess Mazarin. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[Amsterdam: Blaeu, 1662]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gilt embellishments, mild discolouration at center fold, overall very good condition. 20 1/4 x 26 inches. A handsome example of Blaeu's English county map with exceptional original colour and highlights in gold This beautifully presented county map of Hertfordshire from Johan Blaeu's Atlas Mayor, sino Cosmographia Blavania...is from the only Spanish edition of this great work. The map itself is based on John Speed's map, published in 1612, though without the town plans. Blaeu's map includes the coats of arms of two prominent families. The title cartouche illustrates Hertfordshire's relationship to London in that the county supplied corn and hay to the pleading Londoners pictured on the right hand side of the title. Because of its proximity to London, Hertfordshire had many country houses, reflected in some of the placenames on the map: Waterford Hall, Aldbery Hall, Shingle Hall, and, of course, Waymer Castle.
