        AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE

      Paris, 1669. In very good condition. The most important French map of North America of its generation, produced by the country's most esteemed family of cartographers. This very influential map was the official successor to Nicolas Sanson's 1650 map of North America. When Nicolas Sanson, regarded as the father of the renaissance of cartography under Louis XIV, died in July 1667, he left his flourishing business under the charge of his eldest son, Guillaume. The younger Sanson continued his father's partnership with the Mariette family, who were prominent Parisian printers. Guillaume was determined to publish a new, updated edition of his father's CARTES GENERALES DE TOUTES PARTIES DU MONDE, the first French general atlas, originally published in 1657. The map of North America that appeared in the atlas, although masterful, was now considered to be geographically outdated. The present map, which appeared in the second edition of the atlas, featured updated taxonomy, and is geographically based on Nicolas Sanson's wall map of 1666 (of which only two copies survive). While California is shown to be an island, in line with popular perception, unlike the map from 1650, it no longer attempts to build a geographical mythology in the place of the Pacific Northwest, which was then totally unknown. Appropriately, the magnificent baroque title cartouche, which features swags and ribbons held aloft by putti, has been placed to fill this enigmatic space. The map proved to be highly successful, and was used as a source on numerous occasions by future mapmakers.

        Archiducatus Austriae Superioris Geographica Descriptio facta Anno 1667.,

      (Augsburg, Melchior Küssel, 1669). - Kupferstichkarte von 12 Platten auf Leinwand des 19. Jahrhunderts aufgezogen und auf einem Holzstab des 19. Jahrhunderts montiert. Erste Ausgabe der ersten großen Vischer`schen Landkarte. - Descriptio Austriae S. 126 (Tafel 28). - Georg Matthäus Vischer machte 1666 während eines Aufenthaltes in Andrichsfurt den oberösterreichischen Ständen das Angebot eine Karte des Landes ob der Enns anzufertigen. Im Sommer 1667 begann er mit den Feldarbeiten und der Vermessung, wobei er gleichzeit das Material zu seiner Topographie von Oberösterreioch sammelte. Da er nur wenig Unterstützung der Stände für den Stich der gezeichneten Karte erhielt, betraute er den Augsburger Stecher Melchior Küssel mitdem Kupferstich, der diesen 1669 vollenden konnte. Die Karte im Maßstab von ca. 1 : 150000 zeigt neben dem Gelände auch die Ortschaften in perspektivischer Darstellung, und zwar von Süden aus gesehen. Die vorliegende Karte gilt als die erste autoptisch aufgenommene, großformatige und detaillierte Karte von Oberösterreich und diente einem der universalsten Barockkartographen, dem Venezianer Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718) als Vorbild, der die vorliegende Karte 1692 für seinen `Corso Geografico universale` in verkleinertem Format nachgestochen hat. - Neben dem Wappen von Oberösterreich mit dem Herzogshut zeigen die Kartuschen auch noch Ansichten von Gmunden mit dem Traunsee, des Schlosses Kammer mit dem Attersee, des Schlosses Reichenstein und Waxenberg sowie je eine Szene der Salzverarbeitung und der Eisenverhüttung. - Durch die alte Montage und Aufhängung mit den üblichen Gebrauchspuren.

        Extremely Rare 1669 First English Language Edition Of "An Embassy from the East-India Company By Johan Nieuhof

      John Ogilby 1669 - The First Book About The Real China A rare 1669 first English language edition of An Embassy from the East-India Company by Dutch author and explorer Johan Nieuhof, originally published in Dutch in 1665. Due to its tremendous success, several other editions were published that were heavily edited apparently for commercial reasons. It was then translated into French, German, Latin and English in 1665, 1666, 1668, and 1669 respectively. While the other versions were published by Van Meurs, the English version was published and translated by John Ogilby. The book, split into two parts and an appendix, contains notes and illustrations that Nieuhof made while he was a steward on Peter de Goyer and Jacob de Keizer’s embassy to the emperor of China. It also contains a written account of the trip and 149 illustrations. The first part of the work contains details of the entire journey from Canton to Peking and back while the second part is a general overview of China. This book was important to the time because it was a unique source about China and its practices. The images were an important aspect of the book because they more accurately depicted the people of China versus the fantastical European illustrations from the past. Dimensions: 10.25"W x 16" L x 1.75" H. While the later (early 18th C.) front and back covers are detached, the binding is fully intact. There is a map missing from the very front but the double page plan of "Kanton" is included as called for. Several pages have been repaired with tape. Pages 147-8, 185-204 in the first section are missing due to printing error and pages 96-101 in the appendix are out of order due to printing error, all as called for. On page 90 of the appendix the illustration is upside down, once again as called for. Fair condition overall. Text generally in good condition. Toning and some foxing consistent with age (over 345 years old). Some page corners bent as shown in photos. Please inspect all photos carefully. Insurance is not included in the shipping cost. This is an extremely rare book. We have located only one other copy listed for sale for $24,000.00. Shipping within the continental U.S. is $25.00 but does not include insurance. Buyer will also pay for insurance coverage. Buyers outside the 48 states contact us for shipping cost. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Description anatomique d’un Cameleon, d’un Castor, d’un Dromadaire, d’un Ours, et d’une Gazelle

      Paris: Frederic Leonard, 1669. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to (242 x 185 mm). 120pp. Printer?'s woodcut device on title depicting the winged lion of Evangelist Mark and motto, ?"Virtute invidiam vince?" (Virtue overcometh envy) and the legend, ?"Pax tibi marce Evangelista meus.?" 5 engraved folding plates (4 by Sebastien Le Clerc and one by Abraham Bosse) depicting a chameleon on a branch, and a plate with chameleon?'s skeleton and organs in the upper part, on a trompe-l?'oeil sheet; and the same anatomical analysis for the beaver, the camel, the bear and the gazelle, decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments (plates with some tears along folds, repaired on verso, some light darkening, minor marginal worming at end; light edgewear). From the collection of Charles Philippe Robin (1821-1885), French doctor, anatomist and politician (bibliographical note at foot of title). Other early inscriptions to title referring to the engraver ?"M. LeClerc?" and on rear pastedown to the state of the engravings. First Edition and second publication dealing with the comparative anatomy of the animals the chameleon, the beaver, the camel, the bear and the gazelle. Perrault, scientist and naturalist, was the leader of a team of comparative anatomists, called the ?"Parisians,?" that included Guichard-Joseph Duverney, Jean Pecquet, Moyse Charas and Philippe de la Hire. Their investigations began in June 1667 with a thresher shark and lion from the royal academy and went on to encompass forty-nine vertebrate species. The detailed reports and exact descriptions on these dissections were the first of a long series of anatomical descriptions, which ultimately included those of twenty-five species of mammals, seventeen birds, five reptiles, one amphibian, and one fish. Perrault and the team of ?"Parisians?" prided themselves on several discoveries and in the process debunked many popular myths attached to certain species, such as the legend that salamanders live in fire or that chameleons subsist on air. The scientists also recorded how they obtained their results providing a glimpse of how such anatomical research was conducted in the seventeenth century. The work is illustrated beautifully with five large folding plates by the expert painter, engraver, and writer, Sebastian Leclerc (1637-1714), four of which were engraved by Leclerc, and one by the watercolor painter, writer and printmaker, Abraham Bosse (c. 1604-1676). Very fine work; the large folding plates remain fresh and intact. No such detailed and exact descriptions and illustrations had been published before. It is hard to measure another such important addition to the anatomical study of animals.

        Opera nova piacevole e da ridere di un villano lavoratore nominato Grillo, il quale volse diventar Medico. Historia bellissima in ottava rima, novamente ristampata, e ricorretta & di belle figure adornata.

      - In Venetia, et in Bassano, Per Gio. Antonio Remondin. Con licenza de' Superiori, s.d. (ma 1669). In-12 (141x95), cc. nn. 24. Con 8 vignette sceniche di cui 1 ripetuta. Brossura muta coeva. Elegante scatola contenitiva in marocchino rosso. Un limitato difetto della carta interessante la vignetta riprodotta a carta A12-r. Bell'esemplare. Raro. Rarissimo esemplare di queste novellette in versi di centoquarantasette sgangherate ottave, forse il titolo più fortunato della librettistica da fiera italiana di ogni tempo. Grillo, medico «al contrario», è il perfetto eroe dell'ignoranza scientifica: può guarire proprio poiché non fa uso dei tradizionali mezzi di diagnosi né delle medicine. Satira dell'ignoranza villana, la sua vicenda finisce col tradursi perciò in satira della medicina, scienza ignorante e villana. La novella divenne presto un modello e il suo protagonista figura retorica ed epiteto, come nella «Piazza Universale» del Garzoni; si riferì al suo «mondo alla rovescia» la trama della «Fiammella», pastorale di Bartolomeo Rossi, e fu fonte ispirativa del «Médicin malgré lui» di Molière. Bibliografia: Passano, Novellieri italiani, p. 100. STC, 17th cent., 629. Sulla fortuna della novella si veda Vittorio Rossi, Le lettere di Andrea Calmo, Torino, 1888, p. 271 e ss.

      Paris, C. Lambin, (1668-)1669. - 4to. (8), 152 pp. With engr. portrait frontispiece of Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans and numerous pretty woodcut initials and tailpieces. Contemp. richly gilt calf, gilt dentelle central cover decoration showing the Sacred Heart of Jesus, gilt spine on five raised bands (upper spine-end and corners repaired). Marbled pastedowns. Second, enlarged edition of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East and West Indies, written by a Parisian "marchand orphèvre" in Paris and first published in 1661. Both editions are dedicated to "La Grande Mademoiselle" Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier and niece of Louis XIII, with her finely engraved portrait, which is here more delicately executed (by Nicolas de Larmessin, in 1664). The large chapter devoted to pearls and pearl fishing cites the Persian Gulf and several specific places there as among the main locations of pearl fishing: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus & Bassora: aupres de Baroyn [i.e., Bahrain], Catiffa, Iuffa, Camaron, & autres lieux de ce Golfe [.]" (p. 68). This chapter is here "augmented with an appendix which recounts the history of the Spanish conquest in the New World and additionally gives remarks on pearl fisheries, natural history, and production [.] New chapters comprise Ch. 17, on the pricing of diamonds according to size and quality, and Ch. 18 on pricing of pearls. In tems of substance, this edition [the second one, here offered] is considerably superior to the first; both are rare" (Sinkankas p. 97f.). It is these new, additional chapters in particular for which this second edition is sought after "Du prix des Diamans" and "Du prix des Perles", as well as one entitled "Raisons contre les chercheurs de la Pierre Philosophale & souffleurs d'Alquemie. Et ne sera pas mal à propos de parler de Nicolas Flamel sur ce sujet". - Lower spine-end and corners somewhat bumped, otherwise fine. A good copy in an appealingly decorated contemporary French binding. Sinkankas 593. Duveen 71. Sabin 4957. Brunet VI, 4780. Graesse I, 348. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Vanel, lema "Ars longa vita brevis". - // Una de las primeras y más raras obras publicadas sobre las territorios del golfo de Guinea, desde Cabo Verde hasta la actual Ghana. Hace una descripción de la región con las costumbres y hábitos de vida de sus diferentes pueblos, su estructura social y su producción agrícola, su cocina, sus fiestas y sus bailes, añadiendo detalles históricos de lo sucedido en sus costas, y el comportamiento y motivos de ingleses y holandeses en sus acercamientos a ese territorio, con menciones al trafico de esclavos. El detalle de sus observaciones abarca desde la descripción de cómo eran las balanzas empleadas a cómo se aprovechaban los diferentes granos, desde cómo se trataba a las mujeres a cómo extraían oro, cómo comerciaban o a qué recursos acudían para sustentar la paz. Este hincapié en las costumbres, las tecnologías, los aprovechamientos y los recursos susceptibles de comercialización se refleja especialmente en la dedicatoria dirigida a Colbert, donde se aprecia con nitidez la orientación ne tamente económica que requería de la previa y atenta mirada científica que estuvo en la base de su política de expansión comercial y colonial. Para Michaud ("Biographie universelle, ancienne et moderne", 48 -ed. 1827-, p. 561), "ce livre est un des meilleurs qui aient été publiés sur l'Afrique occidentale. L'auteur fait preuve de discernement et de sincérité ; il a très-bien observé les usages des nègres. L'ouvrage est terminé par des remarques tendant à justifier l'opinion que les Français ont fréquenté les côtes d'Afrique, notamment la Côte d'Or, long-temps avant les autres nations".

The stories are in a style reminiscent used by historians of the seventeenth, otherwise all stories are satire or criticism mores of the time (often ending with a moral short), and in this they are quite valuable for the information they provide countless life, morals and manners in the seventeenth and especially in Holland paper (but we see scroll across Europe). The first edition was given to the same address in 1663 III. Barbier, 844. Brunet III, 213. Parival (1605-1669), French author and professor at the University of Leiden gave further Delights of Holland paper and Stories from the miseries of that time. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

La deuxième partie contient 28 histoires s'étant passées en Hollande, avec des historiettes plus lugubres (histoires de crimes, décapitations, voleurs, drames?). Les récits sont dans un style qui évoque celui employé par les historiens du XVIIe, par ailleurs tous les récits sont des satires ou des critiques des moeurs du temps (se terminant souvent par une courte morale), et en cela ils sont tout à fait précieux pour les renseignements innombrables qu'ils fournissent sur la vie, la morale et les moeurs au XVIIe et notamment en Hollande (mais on y voit défiler toute l'Europe).

Arnold Montanus (1625-1683) was a Dutch missionary and editor of this work entitled in German: Memory on the Dutch trade legation sent to the Emperor of Japan. Montanus based the present work on the unpublished reports of these journeys, from the VOC archives, and also in the reports of missionaries (Portuguese, Spanish and Italian). The title-page notes that the book is based on the manuscripts and notes of the VOC delegations, and that the illustrations were drawn in Japan. Other subjects are the first arrival of Europeans, the Japanese religion, customs, the history of Japan, the natural history, and the embassy of Frisius to the Emperor of Japan in 1649 and 1661. From 1641 the Dutch were the only foreigners allowed to trade with Japan, although subject to rigid restrictions outside the VOC outpost on Dejima island. They had to renew permission to trade with Japan annually, for which they sent a delegation from Deshima to the Shogun in Yedo. The illustrations comprise: the folding map (42 x 53 cm) in two panels showing the sea route along the coast from Nagasaki to Osaka, and the land route along the coast from Osaka to Yedo (Tokyo). Four folding views (each on two or one-and-a-half sheets) show profiles of the cities of Osaka, Miaco (Kyoto), Yedo and Kagoshima. Two views show erupting volcanos and many show religious and other rituals, temples, torture and fighting, etc. One shows the Japanese receiving the VOC officials and one shows a rather human-like male

"The Earliest and most famous treatise on the chemistry and technology of glassmaking, in which the practical and closely guarded secrets of the art are revealed for the first time." was Neri's first work on glass (L'Arte Vetraria), printed in Florence in 1612. Merrett translated it into English for the first time in 1662 with many additions. "The part by Neri (203 pp.) is greatly augmented by Merrett's 'observations' (pp 205-352) comprising explanations, additions, and emendations, which almost double the length of the book and are of considerable chemical importance." Ferguson notes "This is not only a rare but it is an instructive book...it gives the reader an insight into how the sciences in the seventeenth century depended on the use of glass...The account of the ... furnaces, pots, materials and reagents, of the methods for making different qualities and colours of glass is very well done." The present offering is the second issue of the first Latin translation of Merrett's version of Neri, "translated by Andreas Frisius and dedicated to Thodor Kerckring, the translator and commenatator of Basil Valentine. The book is important as being the first illustrated edition of Neri. The second issue of 1669 [as offered here] with altered title page, is otherwise identical to the first. (D.S.B.

Containing a particular Description of Indosthan, the Mogul's Empire, the Oriental Ilands, Japan, China … Folio (317 × 196 mm) Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco label, compartments gilt with central lozenge tools within scrolled corner-pieces. Engraved frontispiece, incorporating the title, with portraits of the ambassadors including Olearius, 6 double-page or folding engraved maps, 2 engraved portraits, engraved illustration to the text. A little rubbed, corners bumped, judicious restoration to the joints, head- and tail-caps, and edges, endpapers browned, light toning with occasional spotting, a few minor splits on the folds of the maps, the largest with some old paper repairs verso, but overall a very good copy. Second edition in English, seven years after the first; the first edition in German being the Schleswig printing of 1647. This "renowned narrative" (Arcadian Library) was one of the most influential accounts of both Russia and Persia of its time. Adam Olearius, or ?-schläger (1603-71) was the librarian and court mathematician to duke Frederick III of Holstein-Gottorp. In 1633 he was appointed secretary to the ambassadors Philip Crusius, and Otto Bruggemann or Brugman on their mission to the courts of the tsar Michael I, and the Shah Safi to negotiate "arrangements by which Frederick's newly-founded city of Friedrichstadt should become the terminus of an overland silk-trade" (Britannica, 1911). The first embassy travelled from Lübeck via Riga to Moscow in 1633 and returned in April 1635 in order to receive the duke's ratification of the advantageous treaty that they had negotiated with Michael; in 1636 they embarked on the second embassy travelling via Moscow to Astrakhan and on to Persia, from where they returned in 1639 after a series of inconclusive negotiations. "Once back at Gottorp, ?-lschläger became librarian to the duke, who also made him keeper of his Cabinet of Curiosities, and induced the tsar to excuse his (promised) return to Moscow.

        Paskaarte om Achter Yrlandt om te Zeylen van Hitlant tot aen Heijbat

      Amsterdam: Jacques & Gasper Anthoine, 1669. unbound. Sea chart. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 19 7/8" x 22 3/4". This handsome sea chart by Pieter Goos depicts Ireland in its entirety, with the north oriented to the right. The chart also extends to parts of Scotland, England, and France. Also prominently featured are rhumb lines, scales, embellished tall ships, an elegant cartouche, and the harp crest for Ireland and the lion crest for Scotland. This map was published in Goos' "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with some foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Minor chips along border. Bottom of the center seam is separated. Pieter Goos (1616-1675) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa, and his "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a classic example of Goos' high quality, visually appealing sea charts.

Skinner's Case, the name usually given to the celebrated dispute between the House of Lords and the House of Commons in the Parliament of the United Kingdom over the question of the original jurisdiction of the former house in civil suits. In 1668, a London merchant named Thomas Skinner presented a petition to Charles II asserting that he could not obtain any redress against the East India Company, which, he asserted, had injured his property. The case was referred to the House of Lords, and Skinner obtained a verdict for £5,000. The company complained to the House of Commons which declared that the proceedings in the other House were illegal. The Lords defended their action, and after two conferences between the Houses had produced no result the Commons ordered Skinner to be put in prison on a charge of breach of privilege; to this the Lords replied by fining and imprisoning Sir Samuel Barnardiston, the chairman of the company. Then for about a year the dispute slumbered, but it was renewed in 1669, when Charles II advised the two Houses to stop all proceedings and to erase all mention of the case from their records. This was done and since this time the House of Lords has tacitly abandoned all claim to original jurisdiction in civil suits." References: ESTC R202445. Wing H2459.
