ALTHUYSEN, Jan and Gysbert JAPIX (JAPIKS, JAPICX).
[14], 518, [2] pp.First edition of Jan Althuysen's collection of Frisian poetry, a successor to Japix's acclaimed similarly titled Friesche rymlerye of 1667. The collection is divided in two parts: the first containing various poetry by himself, his father and a few others; the second part is the first complete Frisian translation of the psalms, including the selection of psalms translated by Japix published earlier, supplemented with the translation of the other psalms by Althuysen. This translation of the psalms got him in trouble with the religious authorities, because he didn't had asked for permission of publication in advance.When in 1500 the Duke of Saxony annexed the present-day province of Friesland, Low German became the language of administration and after 1550 no official documents were found any longer in Frisian. Dutch soon became the dominant language. In the 17th century only some four books were published that were entirely written in Frisian. The most important one was Friesche rymlerye (1667), by Gysbert Japix, which in its extended second edition of 1681 included the first grammar of Frisian. Since the revitalisation of Frisian literature during the Romantic period in the nineteenth century, Japix has received much scholarly attention. It is believed his work takes in a crucial position in the linguistic and literary development of the Frisian language. Today Friesland's main literary prize is named after him.With 6 lines added in contemporary manuscript to the laudatory poem by Jan de Kruyff, signed "JR". With waterstains in the fore-edge margins (prima … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHARLEVAL, Charles-François de.
34, [2 blank], 31 pp.Ad 1: Rare first and only edition of a Neo-Latin poem on ships and shipbuilding, including several lines on the etymology of the various terms used to describe a ship, which are depicted on a folding engraving. Although elegantly composed, the author seemingly made several educated guesses as to the true origin of several terms. Charleval "had neglected to research the true origins of the terms which he employed" (Jal).Ad 2: Rare first and only edition of a Neo-Latin poem on the properties of monkeys. As in singerie paintings, in which monkeys imitate human behaviour, the monkeys in the poem are in fact a mirror for human behaviour.Charles-François de Charleval (1667-1747) was a French Neo-Latin poet and a member of the Jesuit order.With a stamp and shelf-mark of René Moreux (1876-1957) on the back of the first title-page. Binding restored.

[SILVESTRE, Charles-François?].
[12], [12], [12], [12] engr. ll.Four extremely rare series of engraved European and Turkish costume figures, intended as models for children learning to draw and at least the Turkish ones drawn for the grandchildren of King Louis XIV of France. Each series has an engraved title-page and 11 model drawings, mostly with 2 figures each. The two parts with Turkish costume figures (ads 2-3) are explicitly called volumes 1 and 2, match each other in plate size and style, and were drawn by the artist and engraver (Charles) François Silvestre (1667-1731). The two parts with European figures and scenes (ads 1 & 4) also match each other in plate size and style, though not explicitly presented as two volumes of a single work, and the only other copy we have located of ad 4 is also bound with ad 1. Since the four series were clearly printed and published together Silvestre may also have drawn the European ones.With owner's inscriptions. An owner has added a few lines in brown ink to the background scene of one plate. In very good condition. The binding shows some professional restoration but remains in good condition and is structurally sound. Four extremely rare series of drawing models, including 22 Turkish costume prints drawn for the grandchildren of Louis XIV.l WorldCat & KVK (1 copy of ads 1 & 4 together plus 1 copy of ad 1 alone); cf.

PEETERS, Jacob and Johannes.
Interesting collection of engraved prints centred around the Great Turkish War (1667-1683), a series of conflicts between the Ottoman Empire and Europe. The collection can be divided into 2 general parts: the first with engraved scenes of the siege of Vienna after Romeyn de Hooghe, and the second with nearly a hundred views of the involved cities. This second part contains 5 separate series, with views of Lower Hungary, Crete and the Maltese Archipelago, the Dardanelles and the Aegean archipelago, the Strait of Gibraltar and North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. The series of 14 views of Arabia, includes Mecca, Jerusalem (2), Bethlehem, Kidron Valley, Mount Sinai, Antiochia, the Valley of Terebinthu, Hurcasdin near Aleppo, the springs of Marah, Ramma Valley, a valley near Jerusalem with the Mar Elias Monastery, and a view of Suez with the mountains of Arabia in the background.The collection was published by Jacob Peeters (1637-1695), and most of the engravings are made after drawings by his brother Johannes, or Jan, Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes as well-shown in the present views, often depicting harbours with several ships.The number of plates vary from copy to copy, but the present collection seems to lack at least 1 plate: the first of the scenes of the siege of Vienna.

[CLIFFORD, Jeronimy].
[4], 478, [2 blank] pp.Final appeal of Clifford's dispute with the Dutch West India Company in Surinam over his large sugar plantation, Corcabo. A remarkably detailed contemporary case-study illuminating life in Surinam in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the production of the plantation, and particularly the friction between the English and the Dutch after the latter took control of the colony in 1667. Andrew Clifford (d. ca. 1702) and his son Jeronimy (ca. 1655?-1737), English-born Protestants residing in Suriname since before 1665, owned and operated one of the largest sugar plantations in the colony. The terms of surrender in 1667 had guaranteed the property and civil rights of the English colonists, and the Dutch discouraged those who planned to leave. In 1675 Clifford sold his Plantation, receiving a bill of exchange payable in London, and returned to England with his still minor son Jeronimy. In London the bill of exchange was not honoured, so Clifford (and later his son) returned to Surinam, coming to an agreement in 1684 that Jeronimy would remain on the estate for two years. Andrew made Jeronimy a partner in the plantation, contributed 10,000 guilders to it, and returned to England in 1685. They owned 2388 acres of land and 117 negro slaves, and produced about six percent of the colony's sugar. Jeronimy, claiming that the Dutch violated his rights by taxing him more heavily than the Dutch and by confiscating part of his land, prepared to move to Jamaica, still under English control, and purchased land there. The Dutch froze his estate, imprisoned and fine … [Click Below for Full Description]

Later decorated paper wrappers. 16 pp. An anonymous and undated pamphlet rebutting one published at Amsterdam in 1687 by the Amsterdam solicitor ("advocaat") Mr. Nicolaas Muys van Holy (1644-ca.1710), a descendant of a well-known family of Regents from Dordrecht. Muys van Holys pamphlet, Middelen en motiven om het kopen en verkopen van Oost- en West-Indische actien, ... te beswaren met een impost, opposes the rampant abuses in the trade in shares ("actiënhandel") of the Dutch East and West India Companies, and he proposes an impost tax on these usually not very transparent and often fraudulent transactions by the "actionisten" (traders in shares) at the Amsterdam stock market, detrimental to the Republic in general and to the individual well-meaning shareholders. A host of pamphlets followed in the years 1687-1688.The author of our pamphlet, probably a merchant from Rotterdam, also strongly opposes the abuses - he gives striking and shocking examples, mirroring the rise of early capitalism in the 17th century in general and the procedures, speculations and abuses at the stock exchange in particular. He is also, however, a fierce opponent of taxation, and says it would profit Amsterdam at the expe … [Click Below for Full Description]

[64], 462, [2 blank], [204] pp. First illustrated Phaedrus edition in the Netherlands, in the original Latin, richly and beautifully illustrated with 103 engravings. It is also the first edition edited by Laurentius. It contains the text of 92 Phaedrus fables with extensive annotations (the first edition of 1596 had only 64 fables). The fables are followed by an "index vocabularum" and an "index rerum & verborum". The preliminaries include several laudatory poems and a letter by Conrad von Rittershausen, who was the first to provide the Phaedrus fables with scholarly commentary, especially those of use for lawyers, published at Leiden in 1598. In the 17th century, especially in the Netherlands, these learned editions were very popular, offering an increasingly growing apparatus of word explanations, variants of texts, corrections of texts and personal comments. With the 1890(?) bookplate of Dr. Felix Durosier on pastedown. With the frontispiece very slightly shaved at the fore-edge, but otherwise in very good condition.

Special emphasis is laid upon the mines of the New World" (Sinkankas). The second part, divided into four books, describes numerous types of minerals and gems but also devotes several pages to bezoar stones and their supposed medical properties as described by Arab physicians.

The present 1667 edition for the first time gives the author's initials in the approbation (*5 r): I.B.S.I., meaning the Flemish Jesuit Jan Bisschop (1590-1664). The engraved title suggests that the information in this handbook is an improvement on a previous apothecary's handbook, calling this a new light on the apothecary, alchemist and the art of distillation. This apparently refers to Dlicht d'Apothekers by Quiricus de Augustis. The title on the frontispiece does not match that on the title page, and this title was used for a new publication in 1683 that re-published all the recipes under the title 't Nieuw-Ligt des Apothekers (Amsterdam 1683).

In very good condition, with only a couple small marginal holes in the title-page. The parchment has a couple stains and a couple holes in the spine, but is otherwise very good.

Verdeylt in acht boecken, tot onderwijsinghe der apothekers. En verrijckt met een vermeerderde examen der chirurgie, benevens een tractaet vande kennisse der drooghen. [Engraved title-page:] Het nieu verbetert en vermeerdert licht der apothekers en distilleerkonst.Antwerpen, Reynier Sleghers, 1667. 8vo. With an anonymous engraved title-page and 2 woodcut illustrations in text. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine. [16], 466, [22]; 70, [2] pp. The fourth edition of a collection of medical distillery recipes, first published anonymously at Ghent in 1653, making it the first book on pharmaceutical chemistry published in the Southern Netherlands. The present 1667 edition for the first time gives the author's initials in the approbation (*5 r): I.B.S.I., meaning the Flemish Jesuit Jan Bisschop (1590-1664). The engraved title suggests that the information in this handbook is an improvement on a previous apothecary's handbook, calling this a new light on the apothecary, alchemist and the art of distillation. This apparently refers to Dlicht d'Apothekers by Quiricus de Augustis. The title on the frontispiece does not match that on the title page, and this title was used for a new publication in 1683 that re-published all the recipes under the title 't Nieuw-Ligt des Apothekers (Amsterdam 1683). In the Pharmacia galenica & chymica the art of distillation is still described as an alchemists' secret. … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed by J. M. for H. Herringman, 1667. FIRST EDITION, First Issue (without the errata slip found below the imprimatur in the second issue). 154 x 92 mm. (6 x 3 5/8"). 8 p.l., 120 pp. FIRST EDITION, First Issue (without the errata slip found below the imprimatur in the second issue). Early (probably 18th century) inexpensive (perhaps even temporary) vellum-backed marbled paper boards, small paper label at bottom of spine. Front pastedown with armorial Macclesfield bookplate; A1 (imprint) and title page with the small embossed armorial stamp of the Macclesfield Library. Front flyleaf with three-line annotation in an early hand. Keynes 85; Wing E-3510. Thin diagonal crack across spine in one place, lower joint with one-inch crack at bottom leading to a half-inch chip to the vellum, corners rather worn and paper covers rather chafed, as expected, but the fragile binding still solid and really quite appealing as an unlikely survival. Final leaf a trifle foxed in upper margin, but AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY INTERNALLY, unusually fresh, clean, and bright, and with deep impressions of the type.As observed in the early annotation on our front flyleaf, the present work is a cordial attack, made without passion, on George Mackenzie's "A Moral Essay Preferring Solitude to Publick Employment," published in 1665. As Keynes indicates, Evelyn and Mackenzie were congenial adversaries in the debate over the best way to lead one's life, partly because Evelyn was of two minds about the matter. Keynes says, "Evelyn's advocacy of an active life might seem at variance with his known del … [Click Below for Full Description]
