Herman Henstenburgh (1667-1726)
Herman Henstenburgh (1667-1726) Scene with Exotic Bird in Grand Park Watercolor and gouache on vellum Signed, lower left: “H. Henstenburgh. fec.” Paper size: 17 1/8” x 13 1/4” Framed size: 28 1/2” x 24 1/2” This dramatic and exquisitely rendered watercolor is a superb works by one of the finest Dutch natural-history painters, Herman Henstenburgh. Henstenburgh was a pupil of Johannes Bronckhorst, a fellow native of Hoorn in the Netherlands. According to contemporary accounts, Henstenburgh started out by depicting birds and landscapes in the manner of his teacher, and then broadened his repertoire to include splendid flower and fruit pieces, and occasional woodland still-lifes. For his flawless draftsmanship and vibrant colors, Henstenburgh won considerable renown even during his own lifetime. Compositionally, these works are influenced by the smaller watercolors in a similar vein by Bronckhorst, but the execution and colors are here far more dynamic than anything Henstenburgh’s teacher ever produced. The contemporary chronicler Johann van Gool attempted to explain the extraordinary richness of Henstenburgh’s colors by asserting that the artist had invented a new type of watercolor, though the more simple and accurate explanation is that he was exceptionally skilled in this difficult medium. Signed pictures by Henstenburgh are extremely rare, and this work represents a particularly rich and lively composition by one of the finest Dutch nature painters. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Voraus gingen vier Haager Drucke. "Die bedeutendste publizistische Schrift, die Deutschland im 17. Jhdt. hervorgebracht hat" (Breßlau, Monzambano-Literatur). Die rücksichtslose Kritik an den öffentlichen Zuständen des Deutschen Reiches, welche 1754 auf den ‘Index librorum prohibitorum’ gesetzt wurde (vgl. Reusch II, 173), erregte sogleich großes Aufsehen: "Die unter dem Namen Severinus de Monzambano veröffentlichte Schrift [.] zeigte die Irregularität der Reichsverfassung nach den Maßstäben des modernen souveränen Staates, wonach das Reich staatsrechtlich betrachtet einem Monstrum vergleichbar (monstrum simile) sei.

EVELYN, John.
- By J.E. Esq; S.R.S. 8 p.l., 120 pp. 8vo, early 18th-century vellum-backed marbled boards (spine a little defective). London: J.M. for H. Herringman, 1667. First edition, first issue, written in response to George Mackenzie’s A Moral Essay, preferring Solitude to Publick Employment, And all it’s Appanages (1665). Mackenzie, a distinguished Scottish advocate, became known as "Bloody Mackenzie" for his harsh treatment of the Covenanters. His book betrayed the character of a bigot. "Perhaps it was his sense of this that incited Evelyn to compose in 1667 his reply [the present book] Evelyn’s advocacy of an active life might seem at variance with his known delight in country solitude and pursuits, and in truth his attack upon Mackenzie is but a half-hearted affair Evelyn’s little volume is attractive in a plain way."–Keynes, John Evelyn, 85 & pp. 185-87.

He presents a theory of the blueness of the sky based on the principle of dispersion. There is also a careful exposition of theories of vision and the mechanics of the eye. <br/><br/> & & Fabri (1606-88), “mathematician and physicist, was born near Belley, France, educated at the Collège de la Trinité in Lyon, and ordained a Jesuit priest in 1635. He taught metaphysics, astronomy, mathematics, and natural philosophy at the Collège from 1640 until 1646, when he went to Rome, remaining there for the rest of his life. Fabri engaged in research and controversy on a wide range of scientific issues, including heliocentrism, the explanation of tides, and the circulation of the blood (he discovered the latter, independently of, and later than, Harvey, in about 1636); his writings on light and colors contributed to the science of optics” (Albert et al, Source Book in Ophthalmology, p. 100). <br/><br/>& & De Vitry 379; Macclesfield 754 (not in Honeyman, Horblit or Norman); Albert et al 709; Goldsmith F45; Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo 12; Sommervogel III 515; Vagnetti EIIIb58; Wellcome III, … [Click Below for Full Description]

EVELYN, John
By J.E. Esq; S.R.S. 8 p.l., 120 pp. 8vo, early 18th-century vellum-backed marbled boards (spine a little defective). London: J.M. for H. Herringman, 1667. First edition, first issue, written in response to George Mackenzie's A Moral Essay, preferring Solitude to Publick Employment, And all it's Appanages... (1665). Mackenzie, a distinguished Scottish advocate, became known as "Bloody Mackenzie" for his harsh treatment of the Covenanters. His book betrayed the character of a bigot. "Perhaps it was his sense of this that incited Evelyn to compose in 1667 his reply [the present book]...Evelyn's advocacy of an active life might seem at variance with his known delight in country solitude and pursuits, and in truth his attack upon Mackenzie is but a half-hearted affair...Evelyn's little volume is attractive in a plain way."-Keynes, John Evelyn, 85 & pp. 185-87. Fine copy from the Macclesfield library with bookplate. .

Herbert, George, and, Christopher Harvey
Printed: 1667. 1593-1633 Duodecimo, . Nineth edition of the first book, the second Fifth edition. [*]6, A-L12, K6; A-C12. The text of the Temple includes the pattern poems, "The Altar," and "Easter Wings." Herbert's reputation rests on this remarkable collection of poems which mark perfectly the metaphysical tone of his spiritual unrest, which is resolved in final peace, "the Herbert we know through 'Aaron,' 'Discipline,' 'The Collar,' 'The Pulley,' and many other poems in which he strives to subdue the willful or kindle the apathetic self. His principal themes are those 'two vast, spacious things . Sinne and Love.' There is nothing soft in the poet who seeks to engrave divine love in steel; and a catalogue of gratuitous, untempered, and short-lived sweets leads up to the magnificent contrast of the disciplined soul that 'never gives.' "As the Anglican merges with the greater poet, so the 'quaint' writer merges with the metaphysical. Herbert had his share of the age's passion for anagrams and the like, which Addison was to condemn as 'false wit.' But the poet who could shape a poem in the physical likeness of 'The Altar' or 'Easter Wings' had, even more than most of his fellows, a functional sense of meter and rhythm. The technical experimentalist and master was, we remember, a skilled and devoted musician. The movement of his verse, taut or relaxed, can suggest all his fluctuating moods, from self-will or weakness to joyful surrender and assured strength. He moves from this world to the world of the spirit 'As from one room t'another,' or dwells simultaneously in both, an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary full leather, spine richly and decoratively gilt and on raised bands, 2 gilt, very neatly and unobtrusively renewed, lettering pieces. 4to. A very good and clean copy in an attractive contemporary binding.***First French Edition, one of the most important early sources on Persia from the first traveller who recognized the immense importance of Persepolis as the metropolis of the ancient Persian kings! 'Garcia de Silva Figueroa, Spanish diplomat and traveller (born Zafra, Badajoz, December 1550; died at sea on the return from Persia, 22 July 1624) was sent to the court of Shah Abbas I. in Persia as Philip III's ambassador. He arrived there in October 1617 and stayed for 2 years, dealing with matters related to the conflict between the Safavids and Ottomans and to Portuguese control over Hormuz but without achieving the desired results from Shah Abbas. Figueroa then returned to Spain with a collection of rare art objects from places he had visited. He left an account of his mission to Persia entitled Totius legationis suae et Indicarum rerum Persidisque commentarii, the manuscript of which is preserved at the National Library in Madrid. This memoir, which had been written down by a secretary of the embassy, was corrected according to notes provided by the ambassador and translated into French by Abraham de Wicqfort. Figueroa's work contains a great deal of geographical, ethnographical, and historical information. He carefully desc … [Click Below for Full Description]

J. B. Loyson, 1667. In-16° (168x105mm), pp. (6), 106, 16, (1), legatura p. pergamena coeva. Bella antiporta allegorica incisa in rame con titolo entro cornice bodata da putti, festoni, figure fantastiche. Fregio tipografico al titolo. Testatine, iniziali e cul-de-lampe ornati su rame. Quattro tavole allegoriche incise in rame "en taille douce" f.t. ad illustrazione del testo poetico. Antiche annotazioni manoscritte ai contropiatti. Alcuni aloni marginali. Riedizione secentesca, dedicata dal Loyson al Delfino di Francia, di questa raccolta collettiva di quartine del secondo Cinquecento, ancora molte volte stampata nei secoli successivi col titolo "La Belle vieillesse, ou les anciens quatrains...sur la mort et sur la conduite des choses humaines" con il commento dell'abate di Saint-Melaine de Rennes e predicatore regio Jean Baptiste Louis de La Roche (? - Parigi, 1780), fecondo anche se modesto scrittore di materia letteraria (voce "Roche" di W. S. in Michaud, "Biogr. universelle", XXXVIII. 290-291). Questa impressione è accresciuta delle quartine di Faure e di Mathieu, concepite con intenti didascalico-moraleggianti analoghi a quelle del Pibrac. L'opera consiste in un inanellarsi di riflessioni di ordine filosofico o sapienziale sulla vita, la morte e la vanità del mondo esposte in quartine poetiche. Seguono "Les Quatrains de la Vanité du Monde", le "Tablettes ou Quatrains de la Vie et de la Mort", "Les Plaisirs de la vie rustique" e un'ode sullo stesso argomento di Philippe Des Portes. Cinquanta dei "Quatrains" del Pibrac erano stati editi nel 1574, seguiti da altri cinquan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Circle of Herman Henstenburgh (1667-1726)
- Circle of Herman Henstenburgh (1667-1726) A Still Life with grapes, plums, hazlenuts, chestnuts, blackberries, a melon, and a peach on a stone Watercolor and pencil on vellum Vellum size: 9 3/4” x 12” Frame size: 20” x 22” Signed on ledge: Henstenburgh fecit/ 1761 This dramatic and finely rendered still life is an exquisitely rendered painting from the circle of one of the finest Dutch flower painters, Herman Henstenburgh. The watercolor is in the best tradition of Dutch still-life painting, replete with trompe l'oeil effects and startlingly realistic details, including a wonderfully delicate snail. The rich, dark brown background combines with the profusion of fruits to create a compelling image of warmth and bounty, while all meticulously detailed elements emerge with striking clarity from the dramatic dark background. This engaging and finely rendered still-life is a significant piece from the circle of the finest of Dutch flower painters. Henstenburgh was a pupil of Johannes Bronckhorst, a fellow native of Hoorn in the Netherlands. According to contemporary accounts, Henstenburgh started out by depicting birds and landscapes, in the manner of his teacher, and then broadened his repertoire to include splendid flower and fruit pieces, and occasional woodland still-lifes. For his flawless draftsmanship and vibrant colors, Henstenburgh won considerable renown even during his own lifetime. It is thus unsurprising that other artists should have emulated his style.

July 29, 1667. Contemporaneous Manuscript Fair Copy of a speech of Charles II, entirely in a clerical hand, one page, folio, with the attached integral leaf, July 29, 1667, House of Commons. Written just seven years after his return to England, Charles defends his unpopular wars against the Dutch. In part, original spelling intact: <I>"...I wonder what any one thing I have done since I came into England that should give occasion of jealous; and that I doo attend to Govern by a standing Army. I am more an Englishman than thou and if others will observe the law as I doo, there will be no fears of any such thing..."</I> Charles II (1630 - 1685) was the King of England, Scotland and Ireland. According to the royalists, Charles II became king when his father Charles I was executed at Whitehall on January 30, 1649, the climax of the Second English Civil War. The English Parliament did not proclaim Charles II king at this time, however, and England entered the period known to history as the English Interregnum. The Parliament of Scotland, on the other hand, proclaimed Charles II King of Scots in 1649. Following his defeat at the Battle of Worcester on September 3, 1651, Charles fled to the continent and spent the next nine years in exile in France and the United Provinces. After the Protectorate collapsed under Richard Cromwell in 1659, General George Monck invited Charles to come to England and assume the throne. Charles II arrived on English soil May 23, 1660, and his return marks the beginning of the Restoration period. Age toning, wear to edges, otherwise very good.
