I en katalog fra 1973 omtales denne boken som en norsk inkunabel. Michel Thomessøn, boktrykker i Christiania i perioden 1656-88. "Til dels må T. ha solgt til Danmark. Bokhandleren Chr. Cassube i Kjøbenhvan hadde således kjøpt en del eksemplarer av H. Müllers "Aandelige Spare-Timer", oversatt av Peder Møller, som da var prest i Kristiania, - ett av T.s trykk fra 1667. Men så lot Cassube trykket plagiere i Kjøbenhavn. Da dette blev opdaget og den innflytelsesrike Peder Møller hadde skaffet seg forfatterprivilegium på boken, gav Cassube ikke tapt, men lot på titelbladet av sitt plagiate trykk, hvor det stod "Trøkt hos Mickel Thomesøn Aar 1667", trykke en tilføielse slik : "oc soltis for 2. Marck. Oc nu trøckt i Kiøbenhaffn oc selgis for en Marck". (NBL XVI s. 221). Boken har mange feilpagineringer

      - Amsterdam, Marcus Doornick, (1669).4to. Modern boards. With woodcut on title-page. (24) pp.* First edition. - South Celebes (Sulawesi) lay on the route that the Dutch took from Batavia to Amboyna. The sultan of Makassar (now Ujung Pandang), the leading representative of Islam in the region, was especially hostile to the Dutch missionary drive. He was also determined to protect Makassar's position as an international harbour for the spice trade, open to all nations. With the support of the English, Danes and Portuguese, he had long resisted the efforts of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to monopolize the spice trade. Alarmed by this development, Batavia in 1666 sent an expedition against Makassar led by Cornelis Speelman (1628-1684). He forced the sultan in 1669 to conclude a treaty which the Dutch, obtained a monopoly of Makassar's trade and succeeded in bringing South Celebes under Dutch supremacy with the help of the Bugis people who were being oppressed by the Macassarese . - Very rare.Landwehr, VOC, 238; Cat.

        De rampspoedige scheepvaart der Franschen naar Oostindien . Onder't beleit van de Heer Generaal Augustyn van Beaulieu, met drie Schepen, uit Normandyen

      Amsterdam: Jan Rieuwertsz and Pieter Arentsz, 1669. Quarto, with eight engraved plates; bound in later period-style full calf, spine gilt with raised bands, ex libris of Saint Charles de Bourbon seminary on title; a few scattered wormholes, some plates closely cropped (loss of number on plate facing p. 121), but a very handsome copy. French incursions in the East Indies. First Dutch edition, and rare. This is the only separate appearance and the only illustrated edition of Beaulieu's account of his travels for the fledgling French "Compagnie des Indes Orientales". Beaulieu was a French navigator and coloniser who was appointed in 1619 to command the so-called "Fleet of Montmorency". The three ships sailed to Madagascar and Banda Atjeh via the Cape of Good Hope, but the voyage was not entirely a success, with two of the ships captured by the Dutch, keen to preserve the rights of the VOC. Undaunted, Beaulieu still petitioned for Madagascar to become a roadhouse for voyages to the East Indies, but Richelieu prevaricated, fearing provoking the Dutch. Despite Beaulieu's repeated encouragement, over the following decades Madagascar saw only desultory settlement, much of it from privateers. It was only in 1665 - a few years before the publication of this account - that the first voyage of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales carried settlers to the island; suffering under impossibly harsh conditions, the settlement petered out soon after. These French incursions were not particularly liked by the Dutch, and so it is perhaps not surprising that this Dutch translation focuses on the mishaps and disasters that plagued Beaulieu's voyage (hence rampspoedige, or "catastrophic", in the title). Designed for the Dutch popular market, it was published by the Amsterdam publishers Jan Rieuwertsz and Pieter Arentsz, who produced numerous VOC publications and other voyage accounts. As is often the case with Dutch editions of the seventeenth century, this is a beautifully illustrated book (at a time when most works in English and French often presented rather bare text). Three of the plates are wonderful depictions of ships in distress at sea, including an extraordinary image of a French ship on fire at night. Perhaps the most striking plate, however, is the scene as the French vessels first arrive in the Bay of St Augustin, showing the mariners hastening ashore to trade beads for livestock. This is the best early edition of Beaulieu's voyage, only preceded by the chapter in the second volume of Thévenot's Relation de divers voyages curieux (1664). The only earlier account of the voyage of the Fleet of Montmorency appears to be the impossibly rare Voyage faict aux Indes Orientalles by Jean Le Telier, one of Beaulieu's fellow captains. As a manuscript note and library stamp on the title-page attests, the book was donated to the library of the St Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia by one Dr Gilbert in 1876.

An attractive seventeenth century edition.The greatest summary of ancient knowledge and one of the principle sources for our understanding of antique technology and science, Pliny's work attracted a vast commentary throughout the intervening period, not least because little new original work was done until the early modern period to overturn the learning presented in the work.'Pliny was no prophet nor in any way in advance of his age; he was merely its spokesman and in that capacity fulfilled his mission. He was an historian of the same pattern as Herodotus (also a compiler of records) who set down many things which personally he did not credit but which in loyalty to his authorities he considered it his duty to report, at the same time reserving his own judgment on the matter.'

      Amsterdam, Jacob Meurs, 1669.Folio. Contemporary blind-tooled calf, spine with raised bands. With title-page printed in red and black, fine engraved allegorical frontispiece, large folding map, 24 folding or double-page plates (some margins restored; one plate damaged on the fold) and 71 half-page engravings in the text. (8),456,(16) pp.* First and only Dutch edition. - A sumptuously illustrated account of the two Dutch missions of 1649 and 1661 to the shogun's court. After the expulsion of all foreigners from Japan, the Dutch were allowed to settle on the man-made island of Deshima in the bay of Nagasaki. The Dutch trading center there served not only commercial ends, but it was also Japan's window on the western world. In addition, it provided other countries with an avenue of approach to Japan. Thus, from 1637 to 1854, the Dutch alone were able to retain their trading rights. During this period they were able to exercise their mediating functions for other nations, as they did in preparing the way for America's admiral Perry. 'Some new information along with a lot of old material about Japan became available in 1669 with the publication of Montanus' Gedenkwaerdige gesantschappen. Ostensibly a description of several VOC embassies to the shogun's court after 1640, it is in fact an encyclopedia of things Japanese' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III, p.488). With o.a. fine large views of Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. Including also a description of Batavia with double-page plan after Janssonius (see Brommer, Batavia, Bat K15). - Some blank margins restored, with strong impressions of the plates. - Fine.Tiele 762; Cat. NHSM I, p.499; Landwehr, VOC, 522; Cordier, BJ, col.383; Alt-Japan-Katalog 1049; Laures 496.

        An Embassy from the East-India Company of the United Provinces to the Grand Tartar Cham Emperour of China

      London: John Macock for the Author, 1669. London: John Macock for the Author, 1669. First edition. A tall folio volume (pages 16 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches) in contemporary mottled calf boards, rebacked with six raised bands and gilt in the spine compartments, preserving an earlier spine label. Pages lightly age toned, the occasional spot of foxing or soiling, but in general, an excellent, authentic copy. Unwashed and with just one minor repair to close a tear and secure one of the plates. Signatures: A - Iiii(2); a-e(2); B-Ee(2). With engraved portrait of John Ogilby, engraved title page, double-page map of China, double-page plan of Canton (Kanton), 18 other leaves of plates (one leaf with two separate plates), and 121 other engravings within the text. Blank leaves in the text at Pp2 and e2. Lacking the final blank, otherwise complete (the only copy currently available with all plates). & & Nieuhoff traveled to China in 1655 as a steward for Peter De Goyer and Jacob De Keyzer as representatives of the Dutch East India Company, with plans to break the Portuguese monopoly over trade with China. Nieuhoff's narrative, along with the accounts of traveling Jesuits were the first reliable narratives of China available to a European audience. The work includes many incidental remarks on the manners and customs of the Chinese, together with a second part comprising a general description of the Chinese Empire. The fine plates and illustrations show town views in China, Tibet and Tartary, together with subjects such as costume and natural history. Ogilby added extracts from the writings of Father John Adams and Athanasius Kircher's "China monumentis" (1667) to supplement the volume.

        Les metamorphoses d'Ovide

Corneille. Paris: Claude Barin, 1669. Original edition of the first two books of Ovid translated by Thomas Corneille. The full translation was not published until 1697. 12mo. Contemporary calf, gilt spine with raised bands. Rubbed. Leaf with engraving on verso; leaf of title, verso blank; 8pp. ded. to La Dauphin, signed T. Corneille; 4pp. Av lecteur; 234pp. text with one engraving for book II on I vi(verso); 12pp. priv. dated 12 Aout 1668/31 Jan 1669. Collation: []1, a6, A-T6, V3 []. STC French 1601-1700 O-236. An elegant edition with beautiful typography and ornamentation. Thomas Corneille (1625-1709): playwright, poet. To distinguish himself from his brother Pierre Corneille, Thomas was known as "Monsieur Corneille." He was one of the leading authors who began to produce plays during the Fronde and brought out even more plays than his brother Pierre: thirty-eight plays composed alone or in collaboration. His first tragedy, Timocrate (1656), helped to restore the genre to popularity after the troubles of the Fronde. Although he was more attractive in manner and in conversation than Pierre, he lacked Pierre's genius. Still, "with Quinault he filled the interval in the history of the French drama between the zenith of Pierre Corneille and the advent of Racine" (Harvey and Haseltine). Although not as important a playwright as his brother, Thomas wrote with great facility. He is credited with perfecting the French language, as can be evidenced by this translation of Ovid (begun shortly after he left school), his notes to Claude Favre Vaugelas Remarques su la langue Francais (1647) , his compilation of a dictionary of arts and sciences for the Academie Francaise (1694), and his editorship of Mercure galant, with Donneau de Vise. The artist of the two engravings fronting the books is the son of Hermann Weyen (or Weyher), Laurent Weyen (1643-1672), a Flemish engraver who died in Paris. Laurent also engraved illustrations for the works of Moliere. Provenance: Goodspeed's Bookshop/Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow.

Bookplate of J.[osé] Pinto Ferreira. ---- This is the first attempt to collect the works of Camões under the general title @Obras. The four volumes, consisting of the @Lusiadas and the three parts of the @Rimas, have separate pagination and signatures. The @Lusiadas was issued without any special title page. The first part of the @Rimas has a title page noting the three parts, while the second and third parts have their own title pages. João Franco Barreto, editor of the @Lusiadas, also edited the first two volumes of @Rimas. Volume three of the @Rimas, published here for the first time, was edited by António Alvares da Cunha.The volume titled @Obras contains a brief biography of the poet, ending with the famous epitaph by D. Gonçalo Coutinho which originated the erroneous date of Camões' death, followed by the sonnet "Quem louvará Camões, que elle não seja?". The verso of the fourth preliminary leaf of this volume is correctly titled "Privilegio"; in some copies it is "Frivilegio."@Provenance: José Pinto Ferreira, army officer and for many years a distinguished Portuguese collector, specializing in Camões and the Restauração. ---- Arouca C63, C71, C82-3.

        "Lexicon Heptaglotton, Hebraicum, Chaldaicum, Syriacum, Samaritanum, Aethiopicum, Arabicum, et Persicum ... Cui accessit brevis, & harmonica ... Grammaticae"

      London: Thomas Roycroft, 1669. London: Thomas Roycroft. 1669. "First edition, the rarer of two known title-pp. (with Roycroft&#39;s name only in the imprint -- Wing locates only 4 copies thus), 2 volumes, folio, title-p. in red and black, engraved portrait frontispiece by William Faithorne, text primarily in triple column and printed in Roman, Italic, Hebrew and a variety of other exotic fonts, pp. [8] & 4008 columns, and thus paged; full contemporary calf recently rebacked, red gilt-lettered morocco label of H. Harrison, ""Braz. Coll."" on Vol. I upper cover, matching spine labels; initial leaves loose and laid in; ex-Kershaw Library, St. Bede&#39;s College, with 1890 presentation bookplates from John Canon Kershaw on front pastedowns; board fore-edges quite worn and cracked; overall a good example of one of the great scholastic undertakings of the 17th century, under squalid and heart-wrenching conditions. The work was 18 years in the making and the story of its compilation is fraught with tales of unremitting toil, constant vigils, bodily suffering, loss of fortune, orphaned children, prison terms and fire (see DNB for the long, sad tale surrounding Castell and his life-long labor). Brian Walton, in his Preface to the great London Polyglot Bible of 1657 (also printed by Roycroft -- ""conspicuous among printers who did credit to their profession in the 17th century""), cites Castell as being especially responsible for the Samaritan, Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic versions. While Castell&#39;s work ""marks an epoch in Semitic scholarship ... it met with a deplorably cold welcome in England ... At the time of his death about 500 copies still remained unsold, and his niece and executrix, Mrs. Crisp, lodged the remnant of her uncle&#39;s life-work in one of her tenant&#39;s houses at Martin in Surrey, where for some years the rats played such havoc with the learned pages that when the stock came to be examined scarcely a single copy could be made up from the wreck of the sheets, and the fragments were sold for the sum of 7 pounds"" (DNB). Wing C-1225; Ebert 3663; Graesse II, p. 65; Vancil, p. 46; Zaunmüller, pp. 344-345; Lowndes I, 386: ""The work, embracing all the oriental languages in Walton&#39;s Polyglot, and designed to complete it, is, says Dr. A. Clarke, probably the greatest and most perfect work of the kind ever performed by human industry and learning."""
