      Amsterdam, Jacob van Meurs, 1665.2 volumes in 1. Folio. Contemporary polished vellum. With title-page printed in red and black, engraved frontispiece depicting the emperor of China with globe and a convicted criminal (2 blank margins rep.), engraved portrait of the author, large folding engraved map of China and Formosa, 2 engraved coats of arms, 34 double-page engraved plates and 110 large engravings in the text. (8),208;258,(10) pp.First edition. - Between 1640 and 1644 Nieuhof was serving as an official of the Dutch West India Company (WIC) in Brazil, but by 1665 he was at Batavia, in Java, as a servant of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). In 1665 Nieuhof published what is regarded as the definitive account of the Dutch embassy to Peking, and it is for this that he is best known (Howgego p.752). Nieuhof's account presented the Dutch reader with the most substantial and detailed description of the Middle Kingdom yet published. It contains information from the most important Jesuit sources and adds to them the observations of one of the first Dutchmen to travel in China's interior and visit the capital. Nieuhof's book is lavishly illustrated (providing) European readers with more realistic visual images of China's landscape and people than ever before (Lach-Kley, Asia in the making, III, p.484. This first embassy of the Dutch East India Company of Pieter de Goyer and Jakob de Keyser to the court of China in the years 1655-57, describes all the events during this mission, the country, people, flora & fauna, etc. It is one of the very few non-Jesuit sources of the period. It is richly illustrated with large views of all ports and places visited, starting with Batavia, and with numerous nice text-engravings illustrating in detail Chinese life in the 17th century. The illustrations, engraved after Nieuhof's relatively accurate drawings exercised a considerable influence on the European conception of China and were widely used and reproduced (Löwendahl p. 65). The Paolinxi-plate mentioned in the index is actually only present in the Latin edition. - A very fine copy.Tiele 800; Landwehr, VOC, 539; Cat.

        Occasional Reflections upon Several Subjects. Whereto is premis'd a Discourse about Such Kind of Thoughts

      London: by W. Wilson for Henry Herringman, 1665. First edition. Title in red and black. [40], 264; 229, [1], 9 pp. 2 parts. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked. Some slight dampstaining to endpapers, hole on 2D3 affecting some letters. Overall, a pleasant copy, in a red quarter morocco slipcase. Boyle the Fisherman: the Honeyman Copy Boyle's most amusing and most frequently reprinted work in modern times, written for the most part while he was a young squire at Stalbridge and much given to riding, walking and angling -- as well as pursuing his scientific interests. Boyle's florid style was parodied by Swift in his Occasional Meditations on a Broomstick, and it is often stated that Reflection II of Section VI on "The Eating of Oysters" (p. 194) gave birth to Gulliver's Travels. Of special interest to anglers is the second part (Section IV), entitled "Angling Improv'd to Spiritual Uses", which contains meditations on angling themes such as "Upon Fishing with a Counterfeit Fly," "Upon a Fish's Struggling after having Swallowed the Hook," "Upon Fishes running away with the Bait," etc. Westwood & Satchell rightly note that "the details of the sport are merely employed as the pegs on which to hang moral and religious reflections." But the scientist Boyle explains that "being really a great lover of angling, and frequently diverting myself at that sport ... the accidents of that recreation were the true themes on which the following discourses were not the only meditations I had made." Published only 10 years after the appearance of Walton's Compleat Angler (1653), it is hard to imagine that Boyle's meditations were not influenced by his distinguished predecessor. The book's significance to anglers is amply evidenced by the prices of copies from famous angling collections: the Heckscher copy in 1906 brought $13.50; the Dean Sage copy in 1984 brought $400.

      . Aquarell auf Papier. verso bezeichnet (signiert ?): "P. F. van Brussel", 9,5 x 16,3 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Die Stilllebenmalerei des 18. Jahrhunderts konnte auf eine ganze Reihe hervorragender Vorgänger zurückblicken: Georg Flegel, Abraham Mignon, Jan Davidsz. de Heem. Die Gruppe ließe sich beliebig erweitern und Künstler wie Jan van Huysum oder Rachel Ruysch waren noch selbst bis weit in das 18. Jahrhundert hinein aktiv. Diese Blütezeit des Stilllebens in jeder erdenklichen Form warf aber auch einen langen Schatten auf die Spätgeborenen, die sich entweder durch perfekte Erfüllung der hohen Vorgaben oder durch radikale Innovation bewähren mussten. Zwar war das Stillleben in der akademischen Hierarchie weiterhin von letzter Bedeutung, doch es erfreute sich bei Sammlern immer noch großer Beliebtheit. Paul van Brussel gehörte zu jener Generation Maler, die mit dem Ballast der Tradition umzugehen hatten. Für ihn bedeutete dies, in den Grenzen seines Faches zur Perfektion zu gelangen. Die großen Vorbilder Jan van Huysum und Jan van Os stehen bei seinen Gemälden immer Pate. Die Käuferschaft dankte es ihm mit zahlreichen Aufträgen und viele Kopien nach seinen Gemälden bezeugen die hohe Wertschätzung. Unsere beiden Zeichnungen verdeutlichen allerdings einen anderen, weniger konventionellen Zugriff auf die Objekte seiner Malerei. In starker Nahsicht zeigt van Brussel diese Quitte mit ihrem charakteristischen Flaum. Anders als in den durchkomponierten großen Blumengebinden oder Früchtearrangements steht hier die Konzentration auf das einzelne Objekt im Vordergrund. Jede Krümmung, jede Beschädigung, jedes Charakteristikum wird erforscht und zeichnend untersucht. Gerade diese Versenkung, das Meditieren über das Detail, unterscheidet diese Studien von der überbordenden Pracht der fertigen Gemälde, die durch ihre Opulenz überwältigen. Auch die allegorischen Aspekte des Stilllebens, die sich gegen Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts ohnehin zunehmen verflüchtigen, haben unter diesem mikroskopischen Blick keinen Platz mehr. Auch wenn es sich bei dem hier gezeigten Blatt wohl um eine vorbereitende Studie handelt, so besitzt es in der präzisen Durchführung eine Eigenständigkeit, die es erlaubt, ihren Kontext als gezeichnetes und aquarelliertes Stillleben zu betrachten. In der konzentrierten Reduktion findet sich in Adriaen Coorte (um 1665 - nach 1707) ein Vorgänger, den van Brussel allerdings wohl nicht gekannt hat. Erst das durch die Schule des Surrealismus gegangene 20. Jahrhundert hat die mysteriöse und unheimliche Vereinzelung in seinen Werken schätzen gelernt. Das Städel Museum in Frankfurt bewahrt zwei kleine Tafeln von Justus Juncker (1703-1767), auf denen ein Apfel und eine Birne in ihrer Singularität gleichsam als Denkmal präsentiert werden. Hier steigert sich die Faszination für das Detail sogar in einen bizarren Anthropomorphismus, der gut als Karikatur durchgehen könnte. In der Romantik erfährt das Detail und die Fokussierung auf Teilbereiche unter dem Überbegriff des Fragments neue Bedeutung. Paul van Brussels Blatt ist ein gelungenes Beispiel dieser Umbruchzeit, in der nicht mehr das Ganze die Summe seiner Teile ist, sondern im Versinken in das Detail ein neuer Zugriff auf die darzustellende Welt ermöglicht wird.

En semble les funerailles des trespasez selon le manuel romain reformé et l'usage regulier'. Anonyme Handschrift des 17. Jahrhunderts in französischer und lateinischer Sprache, schwarze Tinte auf Papier, sehr gleichmäßige, schöne Reinschrift mit zahlreichen Noten, die letzten 7 Seiten mit Nachträgen von anderen Händen, Blattgröße 18,8 x 14 cm.

      - (2) unbeschriebene Bl., (85) Seiten, (6) Bl. mit Nachträgen, etwas späterer Leder-Band der Zeit, Rücken auf fünf Bünden und mit reicher Goldprägung, Rückenschild fehlt, oder war nie vorhanden (Einband mäßig, Ecken etwas deutlicher, berieben). Die Handschrift beschreibt in beeindruckender Detailgenauigkeit und Präzision die zu absolvierenden Zeremonien bei der Einkleidung und Aufnahme von Novizinnen in ein - leider nicht näher bezeichnetes - Kloster, sowie bei Besuchen am Krankenbett, bei Verabreichung der Sterbesakramente und bei Beisetzungen von Nonnen. Dabei werden sowohl die vorgeschriebenen Bewegungen, zerlegt in kleinste nachvollziehbare Schritte, dargelegt, als auch die zugehörigen Gebete und Gesänge wiedergegeben. Diese besondere Ausführlichkeit und Genauigkeit wird besonders augenfällig beim Vergleich der Handschrift mit den wenigen gedruckten Manualen, wie etwa den 1665 in Mons erschienenen 'Constitutions du monastère de Port-Royal'. Die hier enthaltenen Kapitel 'De la manière de recevoir les filles à la profession' (Seite 68 - 74) und 'La manière de recevoir les filles à profession au monastere du S. Sacrement à Port Royal' (Seite 343 - 345), sowie 'La manière de donner l'habit de Novice au monastere de Port Royal' (307 - 322), stellen im Kern die gleiche Prozedur dar, allerdings erfolgt die Schilderung der Zeremonien in eher knappen Begriffen und Formulierungen. Demgegenüber werden in der hier vorliegenden Handschrift, und darin liegt neben der Seltenheit solcher Dokumente im Allgemeinen der besondere Reiz des Manuskriptes, die Zeremonien wie in einem überaus genauen Drehbuch beschrieben. - Titelblatt mit handschriftlicher Widmung 'A soeur marie seraphique en l'année '73'; die erste Seite etwas angestaubt und fleckig, sonst nur stellenweise etwas stockfleckig, das letzte Blatt vor den Nachträgen fleckig und verso mit dem ersten Nachtragsblatt verklebt.

      FIRENZE, FRANCESCO ONOFRI, 1665 - Legatura settecentesca in mezza pelle maculata color avana e carta spugnata beige, con punte; dorso a cinque nervi rilevati, recante tassello rosso con titolo abbreviato, decorato alle caselle con fregio floreale entro riquadro, con piccoli fregi accantonati agli angoli interni; al piede del dorso, etichetta con numero di collocazione vergato a penna con grafia settecentesca; tagli spruzzati di rosso. 300 pagine numerate, compreso il bellissimo frontespizio figurato, eseguito all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, che riutilizza un'incisione del francese Jacques Callot (1592 - 1635). Mancanza delle ultime carte del volume, con numerazione da p. 301 a 316. Testo in lingua italiana; alcuni bei capilettera istoriati e fregi tipografici a silografia. Il volume è una riedizione accresciuta degli statuti di un ordine cavalleresco istituito dai granduchi di Toscana; la prima edizione dei testi più antichi della compilazione uscì (come informa Graesse) nel 1562-63 per i tipi di L. Torrentino. L'edizione del 1665 è la prima corredata dal frontespizio che riutilizza un rame di Callot; nell'esemplare in esame, l'acquaforte, controfondata su carta antica, è forse in tiratura settecentesca, perché non reca in basso l'indicazione dello stampatore Onofri né la data (elementi attestati da Lieure nel suo catalogo della produzione callottiana per la tiratura del 1665). Esemplare in mediocre stato conservativo, considerate le mancanze; contenuta usura alle cerniere del piatto superiore e alle cuffie del dorso della legatura; frontespizio brunito, applicato su foglio settecentesco; interno dalla lieve ossidazione. 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      NUREMBERG, JOBUS HERTZ per Johann Andreas and Wolfgang Endter, 1665Esemplare in discrete condizioni Legatura coeva in piena pelle con lievi sciupature ITALIANO Legatura coeva in piena pelle; al dorso, titolo e ricchi fregi in oro agli scomparti; tagli spruzzati. Occhiello, elegante frontespizio inciso raffigurante un conciliabolo di personaggi; altro frontespizio con titolo in rosso e nero con, al verso, ampio stemma araldico inciso con le armi di Ferdinando Massimiliano, marchese di Baden etc. ; 30 pagine non numerate per dediche e proemio; 346 pagine numerate; 10 pagine non numerate di indici, 1 carta non numerata stampata al solo recto. All'interno, 11 tavole fuori testo quasi tutte più volte ripiegate, di cui 4 raffiguranti incisioni scientifiche e 7 raffiguranti tabelle; altre piccole incisioni e tabelle nel testo. Prima edizione di uno delle opere  più curiose e rare sulla crittografia. In gran parte si tratta di una raccolta di sistemi di cifratura ispirate o derivate dai testi di Athanasius Kircher, di cui Schott  fu il principale discepolo. Nell'opera si tratta di diversi sistemi crittografici e di sistemi di decifrazione, con l'ausilio in alcuni casi di strumenti meccanici. L'autore presenta alcune scatole del crittografo di sua invenzione tra cui: l'Arca Glottotactica' e il 'Cistula Steganographica' e un 'Mensula Steganographica. Le scatole, simili ad apparati tipografici,  funzionano con la creazione di permutazioni di diverse serie di lettere e numeri. Si osservano vari dispositivi, tra cui manopole rotanti e orologi,  e un sistema di crittografia musicale con spartiti musicali a stampa nel testo. "L'un des plus curieux et des plus rares traités sur les écritures secrètes et leurs nombreuses  combinations." (Bibliotheca esoterica, 442). "The author's system of cryptographi contains also a mode of conveyin secrets by sounds (including singing and the playng of an organ), and by other physical phenomena" (Zeitlinger).   Esemplare in discrete condizioni, sciupature alla legatura con leggera apertura alla cerniera anteriore, modeste lacune ai capitelli; all'interno, modesta gora a scemare lungo il margine di cucitura delle prime 30 pagine, altrimenti fresco e praticamente privo delle consuete ossidazioni.

        Hortorum libri IV. Cum disputatione de cultura hortensi.

      Paris, Typographia Regia, 1665. 4to. (266 x 198 mm). pp. (xxvi including frontispiece), 219 with engraved frontispiece, engraved vignette with royal arms on title, nine engraved head- and tailpieces, and six engraved initials; a fine, large copy, ruled in red throughout, in contemporary calf, gilt floral panels with centre and corner pieces on sides, gilt spine, upper joint slightly cracked. First edition of Rapin's celebrated poem on gardens, and a fine piece of book design. René Rapin (1621-1687), a Jesuit, wrote this work in imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics'. It is divided into four books, on the flower garden, parkland and trees, water, and the orchard. It is followed by a work in prose, a debate between the 'ancients' and 'moderns' on gardening styles, in which Rapin endorses the 'modern' style. This work enjoyed immense renown, and was translated into English by John Evelyn.//"On the threshold of this period the French garden found its earliest poets. René Rapin, the learned Jesuit who wrote so many books, published in 1665 a poem called 'Hortorum libri quattuor'. This was in undisguised imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics', but aimed at giving a supplement on the province of the garden, which the Roman poet had neglected. Rapin had already seen something of the development of gardens in the grand siècle, and this appears in much of what he wrote; but he chiefly concerns himself with the gardens of the time of Maria de Medici and Henry IV. All that he writes in his first book, 'The flower garden', is what is demanded by the usual theorists; and about flowers he only gives pretty myths in the style of Ovid. But in the second book he is inspired with new ideas, the exhaustive treatment of the park (nemus): he says that when you step out of the garden the park must at once appear as a stage formally arranged. The trees must be in the form of the quincunx, with straight lines and right angles, although he also likes slanting lines and circular arches in some places. All the paths have to be provided with fine sand or closely mown grass, and at the sides the beeches or cypresses have to be clipped so as to make straight walls, but the lighter branches may be worked into a thousand shapes and mazes of any kind. He is full of praise for the oak as a good forest tree, and he is emphatically opposed to the clipping of oaks, using all his rhetoric and calling down all mythological punishments upon the heads of the desecrators of trees. This care for the park and its cultivation is by no means unfamiliar in Renaissance times, but the close connection of its main design with that of the garden points to a period which is still to come. In the same way the third book, which treats of water, adhering to all the fantastic ideas of the Renaissance, rejoicing in every one of the innumerable water-devices, and demanding a great extension and development of cascades, does try most energetically to enforce strict regularity in the domain of water. It is admitted that tricks of teasing waters in grottoes, and pumice and shells for decoration, are all wonderful attractions for the people on festival days; but anyone who is sensible, large-minded and thoughtful is fond of great sheets of water, and canals like rivers: it is to sing of these that his lyre shall be strung" (Marie Louise Gothein, History of garden art pp. 431-2).//NUC: DNAL NNBG MB CU-A DDO MH.
