        The adventures of (Mr T. S.) an English merchant, taken prisoner by the Turks of Algiers, and carried into the inland countries of Africa: with a description of the kingdom of Algiers, of all the towns and places of note thereabouts. Whereunto is added a relation of the chief commodities of the countrey, and of the actions and manners of the people. Written first by the author, and fitted for the publick view by A. Roberts.

      London, (William Wilson and) Moses Pitt, 1670. - Small 8vo. (8), 252 [but 254], (2) pp. (includes final leaf of ads). Contemporary calf, rebacked. First edition of this extraordinary account of an Englishman’s capture by Barbary pirates and subsequent adventures as a slave in Algeria. The narrative is framed as an authentic journal of a deceased traveller, prepared for the press by a friend of the departed. Through this mechanism the reader is taken into a proto-novelistic fantasy, albeit one that must have been informed by genuine experience of Eastern travel. As a slave under numerous masters the author tricks his way variously into employment as the cook to the King of Algiers, is then demoted to Keeper of the King’s Bath and secretly fathers a daughter with one of the King’s wives. After an unsuccessful stint as a gardener’s assistant he journeys in the service of an officer, collecting tribute money with the Algerian army and offers his services as an advisor to the Ottoman governor of Tlemcen. He recounts observations on the various peoples encountered and their customs and peculiarities, marvelling at flying serpents, lions and ostriches and skirmishing with an army of Arabs. Against a backdrop of mosques, minarets and palaces, the narrative is peppered with anecdotes of meetings with Barbary pirates, European renegados, and dalliances with alluring women of the Maghreb. - The author takes particular relish in recounting the details of his sexual adventures: "the women in this country keep much at home, but their minds and affections are more wandering abroad, because they are so recluse; whereas if they had as much liberty as in other countries they would not be so furiously debauch’d: their husbands keep strict guard over them, that when they can escape their eyes, they give the reins to their passion, and labour to satisfy themselves more abundantly; stolen waters are sweet: the more they are forbidden and hindered from variety, the more pleasure and satisfaction they fancy in it [.] had my design been to make conquests in the Empire of Love, I think none could have been more happy [.] this good opinion of my ability spread & increased wonderfully in the town [.]". A separate appended section offers directions for navigating the Barbary coast. The work is of value both as a travel narrative and as a proto-novel reflecting the European fascination with the Orient. This is one of four journeys undertaken by Englishmen in the Ottoman Mediterranean analysed recently by Gerald Maclean in his 2004 study "The rise of Oriental travel: English visitors to the Ottoman Empire, 1580-1720". - Provenance: small stamp of Bibliothèque Generale, Rabat, to title, first leaf of dedication, and first leaf of text. Small ownership stamp of Alexander Gardyne, 1883, to verso of title. Manuscript bookplate of Henry White, Lichfield, 1820, to pastedown. A very good copy. Playfair, Morocco, 244. Playfair, Algeria, 155. Pforzheimer, 846. Wing S152. Not in Blackmer or Atabey. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Gran Cairo.

      Bologna, Longhi, 1670. - 945 x 620 mm. Engraved view on 2 sheets joined, letterpress text pasted below (4 columns in Italian, 4 columns in Latin: "Descrittione del gran Cairo [.] Cairi quae olim Babylon") with publisher's imprints. Watermark Panzano. Unrecorded in the standard bibliographies and without counterpart in western libraries, this unique, large-scale view of Cairo reflects the economic and cultural effervescence of the second-largest city in the Empire: under Ottoman rule since 1517 and having expanded south and west from its nucleus around the Citadel, Cairo in the latter half of the 17th century was second only to Constantinople. The Ottoman influence may be discerned in the people's clothing in the foreground as well as in the city's architecture. On the river Nile, the map depicts numerous trade boats and sailors. To the left are soldiers battling as part of a tournament; on the right are the Sphinx (wearing a necklace!) and the famous pyramids of Giza: those of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, as well as the smaller pyramids. The centre of the city shows numerous mosques and gardens. The letterpress text pasted under the engraving provides mostly historical and geographical information (in Italian and Latin). - Longhi's panorama seems to draw various aspects from previous works to create its own original representation of the Egyptian city. Indeed, it bears some resemblance to Braun and Hogenberg's 1572 "Cairos, quae olim Babylon, Aegypti maxima urbs", published in their famous "Civitates orbis terrarum". There are also similarities with Donato Bertelli's "La gran città del Cairo" (Venice 1575), as well as with the map of "Le Grand Caire" produced by the French soldier and traveller Henri de Beauveau (published in his "Relation journaliere du voyage du Levant", Nancy 1615). Ultimately, these plans probably all derive from a 1549 woodcut panorama credited to Matteo Pagano (or a Venetian engraving derived from it), as they all depict the city from the same viewpoint and on a similar scale. Longhi's map even takes up some of the ornaments of the Braun/Hogenberg map, such as the two people riding on a horse and a donkey in the foreground, though the antiquities as well as the numerous irrigation wheels are here shown in much greater detail. - According to scholars, Gioseffo (Giuseppe) Longhi (1620-91) issued a series of views of Italian and foreign cities between 1654 and 1674. A publisher, bookseller and archiepiscopal printer, he was active in Bologna from 1650 to the time of his death. Not only did he publish maps, but he was also a prolific literary editor, notably publishing all the dramatic works of the Italian playwright Giacinto Cicognini. - Some small marginal tears repaired; slight marginal fraying to upper left. Cf. Tooley, Mapmakers III, 150 (for Giuseppe Longhi); Schulz, Venice 70 (for Arrigoni/Bertarelli).

        Histoire de la Floride, ou Relation de ce qui s'est Passé au Voyage de Ferdinand de Soto . traduit en François par P. Richelet .

      Gervais Clovzier, Paris 1670 - (5 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches). [12], 452; [12], 414 pp. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine Provenance: Dukes of Arenberg, Nordkirchen (armorial bookplate) First edition in French of the foundation work on the De Soto Expedition. One of the basic works on the De Soto Expedition, written by the half Spanish-half Peruvian historian of the New World Garcilaso de la Vega ("El Inca"), the first distinguished man of letters to be born there. De Soto, one of the most famous of the conquistadors, landed in Florida, near Tampa Bay, in the spring of 1539. He explored northward, attacking and enslaving local Indians until retaliatory strikes made his progress a running battle. In 1540 the expedition moved north and then west, crossing present-day Georgia, through central South Carolina and into western North Carolina. From here he crossed northern Alabama and Mississippi, where several major Indian attacks deprived the expedition of much of its equipment. In the spring of 1541 he crossed the Mississippi, and spent all of that year in present-day Arkansas. De Soto died the following year and was buried in the Mississippi to conceal his loss from the Indians; the survivors of the expedition rafted down the river and managed to sail small boats to Mexico. The De Soto expedition is thus the first major European exploration of much of the Southeast United States, as well as Arkansas. "This is a contemporary narrative of Hernando de Soto's Conquest of Florida, and the second to be published [following that of the Gentleman of Elvas]. The work is based upon the relations of eye-witnesses and was written forty years after the events which it narrates . It is based upon conversations with a noble Spaniard who had accompanied de Soto as a volunteer, and upon the written but illiterate reports of two common soldiers, Alonzo de Carmona, of Priego, and Juan Coles, of Zabra" (Church). The "noble Spaniard" referred to was one Silvestre, who related details from memory to Garcilaso some time in the 1570s or 1580s. Via this, elements of exaggeration and romance entered the narrative which make it less reliable than the other narratives of the expedition, although still of great value. "One of the major accounts of the travels of De Soto in Florida and throughout the present day Southeastern United States . the Inca's work remains the major literary by-product of this historic invasion.[it] has earned the distinction of being the first work published by a native-born American author" (Servies). First published in Spanish in Lisbon in 1605, the work was not translated into French until the present edition translated by P. Richelet. This first French edition is quite rare in the marketplace, with only one other copy located in the auction records. Sabin 98749; Palau 354837; Eberstadt 130:226. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Fete Book] Courses de Testes et de Bague faittes par le Roy, et par les Princes et Seigneurs de sa Cour, en l'Annee 1662

      A Paris: De l'Imprimerie Royale, 1670. First Edition. Half-Calf. Near Fine. First French Edition (published simultaneously with a Latin version) of a lavishly illustrated fête book describing the famed carrousel of 1662, a spectacular equestrian display staged by young Louis XIV. Folio: [8],8,17-61,[1,blank],63-67,[1,imprimatur],65-104pp, including half-title and engraved title (with portrait of Louis XIV by Gilles Rousselet), plus 96 engravings (4 double-page depictions of processions; 3 double-page views of assembled participants and spectators; double-page illustration of the King in costume as a Roman emperor on horseback; 29 large text illustrations, mostly equestrian portraits; 59 emblems and devices of participants and miscellaneous decorations) by Israel Silvestre, Francois Chauveau and Rousselet after Silvestre and Chauveau; 12 head- and tailpieces, and 7 engraved initials. Eighteenth-century half morocco, spine in seven compartments gilt between raised bands, paper covered boards with green octagonal escutcheon on upper cover. An excellent copy with deep, rich plate impressions; occasional staining and marginal soiling, several old minor paper repairs, leaf 51 (with emblematic engravings) damp-stained and possibly supplied from another copy; binding secure and tight, with staining and wear to covers. Provenance: period library shelf label and bookplate of Paul and Marianne Gourary (this copy sold by Christie's as Lot 355 on 12 June 2009) on front paste down, period ink monogram on first blank and half-title. Tchemerzine (1977) V, 162. Vinet 504. Watanabe 1908. The square in front of the Tuilleries was used to host the games in which five teams, or "quadrilles," representing Romans (led by the King), Persians, Turks, East Indians and American Indians, challenged each other in a series of events staged in a vast amphitheater.The engravings illustrate scenes of the arena, individual members and supporters of the teams, and the teams' emblematic devices. Perrault, of course, is best known for creating an entire literary genre, the fairy tale, derived from half-forgotten folk tales. His Le Petit Chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botté (Puss in Boots), La Barbe bleue (Bluebeard), and many others were later rewritten and popularized by the Brothers Grim. But he began his career as an official in charge of royal buildings during the reign of the Sun King.

        Notomie di Titiano, dedicata all'ill Sig. Franc. Ghisillieri.

      (Bologna, circa 1670). ____ Très rare suite gravée par Bonavera d'après les illustrations du "De humani corporis fabrica" de Vésale (Basel, 1543). Beau titre gravé avec le portrait de Titien au-dessus du lion de Saint-Marc et 17 planches (3 du squelette et 14 des muscles), devant de magnifiques paysages, sans texte ni les chiffre d'identification des muscles. On lit sur la première planche : "Ticianus inventor et delineavt. Dominicus Bonauera sculpsit." Les planches du "De humani corporis fabrica" étaient attribuées à l'époque au Titien. Elles proviennent de son atelier et sont attribuées plus spécialement à Jan Stephen van Calcar. Certaines planches sont très certainement l'oeuvre de Vésale lui-même. Cette très belle suite, se trouve très rarement complète comme ici. Bon exemplaire, très grand de marges. Cushing VI. D.-9. Choulant Franck 196. NLM 12323. Manque au catalogue de la Bibliothèque Nationale. *-------* Beautiful engraved title with a portrait of Titian above St. Mark's lion and 17 plates (3 skeletal plates and the 14 muscle plates) decorated with scenic landscapes and without text and lettering and identification of the muscles. Formerly attributed to Tiziano Vecelli, but now generally conceded to have been drawn by his atelier and more particulary by Jan Stephen van Calcar. "The cumulative evidence points with the near certainty to the fact that the illustrations of the "Fabrica" emanated from the atelier of Titian. Jan van Kalkar, Domenico Campagnola and other artists participated in the work under the supervision of the master, but some of the plates are certainly the work of Vesalius himself." (Saunders, O'Malley, The illustrations from the work of Andreas Vesalius of Brussels, p. 29). In-folio. [505 x 360 mm] Collation : titre, 17 planches. Demi-veau brun, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure récente dans le style de l'époque.).

      Oxford (Oxonii), E Theatro Sheldoniano, 1670. 8vo. (XV)(1),143(1);95(1),8 p. Calf 15.5 cm (Ref: Oldfather 175, see also 114; Ebert 6771; not in Hoffmann; only 2 copies in the British Libraries; cf. Brunet 2,1012, who mentions an edition of 1707) (Details: Back ruled gilt, and with 4 raised bands. Black morocco shield in second compartment. Boards ruled with double fillet borders. Greek text with facing Latin translation) (Condition: Cover scuffed and worn at the extremes. Head of the spine gone for 1 cm. Front joint beginning to split. Corners bumped) (Note: This book is the first publication for the market, i.e. 'real book', printed in the famous Sheldonian Theatre, which was named after the Chancellor of the University, and archbishop of Canterbury, Gilbert Sheldon. The building, a work of Christopher Wren, was completed in 1668. The Vice-Chancellor of the University John Fell 'the most powerful man on the University' in those days 'persuaded Sheldon that, when not in use, the building might be used for printing. Composing frames and presses, (no less than five, a large number then) all built locally, were moved in before the builders were out, late in 1668 or early 1669'. (N. Barker, 'The Oxford University Press and the spread of Learning, 1478-1978, Oxf., 1978, p. 15) In F. Madan's 'Oxford books, a bibliography of printed works relating to the University and City of Oxford, or printed or published there' (Oxford, 1895-1931) we found for 1670 only a few small occasional publications, e.g. some epicedia (funeral songs), or more or less internal University documents, such as the 'Parecbolae sive excerpta e corpore statutorum Universitatis Oxon. in usum juventutis academicae'. The only real book 'e Theatro Sheldoniano' in 1670 is this Epictetus/Cebes/Theophrastus edition. (Madan, vol. 3 (1931), no. 2853) For the previous year of 1669 Madan mentions only the imprint 'e theatro Sheldoniano' for the occasional poem of Corbet Owen, 'Carmen Pindaricum', a bad poem by the way, which was recited at the opening of the Theatre on the 9th of July 1669. In order to understand the following search for the identity of the editor of this anonymous 1670 edition, one should know that an expanded edition 'e Theatro Sheldoniano' was printed in 1680 (also anonymously), and another one in 1707. The 1707 edition mentions on its title an editor, 'C. Aldrich' (Carolus, Charles Aldrich), student of 'Christ Church'. Later bibliographers assumed that this same Aldrich must also have been responsible for the anonymous 1670 & 1680 editions. Now Aldrich's dates are 1681-1737. (See for Charles Aldrich 'A directory of the parochial libraries of the Church of England and the Church of Wales' by N.R. Ker & M. Perkins, London 2004, p. 235, s.v. Henley-On-Thames, where the story of his library is told) So, Charles Aldrich cannot have produced the edition of 1670, nor that one of 1680. He however gives us a clue to the identity of the editor of the 1680 edition. The real editor of the 1680 edition, we must conclude, is most probably the classical scholar, Dean of Christ Church, bishop of Oxford, John Fell, because Aldrich tells us on page a4-recto of his 'Ad Lectorem' that he 'minime deflexisse' from 'illa Felli editione' of 1680. This could mean of course 'from the edition of the University Press, led by John Fell', but this seems far fetched. More probable is that Aldrich refers to an Epictetus edition of 1680, which was produced by Fell himself. The name on the title of the 1707 edition caused later bibliographers (Fabricius/Harles, Bibliotheca Graeca, Hamburg, 1796, volume V, p. 80, but also Oldfather in his 'Bibliography of Epictetus', no's 114 and 117) to ascribe the 1670 and 1680 edition erroneously to Aldrich. As shown above, the almost certain editor of the 1680 edition is John Fell. On the title of the 1680 edition even the phrase on the title of 1670 'denuo recognita & notis illustrata' was copied. That it is a reprint (with the addition of passages from Prodicus and Cicero, not yet found in the first edition) of 1670 is proved by the reproduction in 1680 of the 1670 misprint of 'viderà' for 'videre' on page A4-verso of the preface. In the preface of 1670 it is admitted that the edition is based on earlier ones, especially those of Meric Casaubon and Salmasius, but the editor claims to have filled some 'lacunae' and to have corrected the Greek text and Latin translation (by Meric Casaubon, first published in 1659), not only with the help of the printed sources, but also by collating manuscripts from the Bodleian Library and the Library of the New College. (A3-verso) From the abundant notes of others he offers only an anthology (sylva), to elucidate some matters. These notes can be found at the end of the book, and they number only 8 pages. The notes are brief, for the editor says that he does not approve of voluminous books, stuffed with unnecessary knowledge. To underline his loathing he tells the reader that he left the job of compiling this 'sylva' of notes to a 'juvenis studiosus' who had plenty of time for that (cui otium magis suppetebat). (A3-verso & A4-recto) The tone of the writer of the preface is mature and very confident, he surely is a proud and advanced scholar. This leaves us in Oxford ca. 1670 with only one person, John Fell, 1625-1686, a great classical scholar, Dean of Christ Church, bishop of Oxford, and Architypographus of the University Press from 1672. He had a high reputation as a Grecian and a philologist, and published editions of Cyprian, Aratus, Theocritus, Athenagoras and other classical authors. (N. Barker, 'The Oxford University Press and the Spread of Learning', Oxf., 1978, p. 14-26; see also the 11th edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, s.v. John Fell) It is more than appropriate to assume that Fell produced the first 'real' book, be it for students, for the press of his University. For the founding of the revived Press of the University of Oxford was his work alone. Epictetus and the 2 other works in this volume have been repeatedly republished by the University Press, in 1680 and 1707 (already mentioned), but also in 1702, 1715, 1723, 1739 and 1804 (Madan, no. 2853) Madan tells about the misprint 'viderà' for 'videre' in the preface that it 'is perhaps in all copies corrected by hand'. Our copy apparantly escaped the attention of the corrector, for the misprint has not been corrected. This book seems to be extremely rare. We found only 5 copies in British Libraries, one in the British Library, 2 in the Bodleian, one in Cambridge University Library, and one in Sheffield. All British university libraries hold an electronic or microfilm copy of the book. They all ascribe this edition to Aldrich, except the British Library and the Bodleian. They mention John Fell. We searched in KVK for other copies, and we found only 2 other copies, one in the University Library Gent, and one in the Royal Library of Denmark. The copy of the 'Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin' is lost owing to 'Kriegsverlust'. We found not one copy auctioned in 'Americana Exchange') (Provenance: The front pastedown has once been renewed. Through the paper is vaguely visible a big bookplate) (Collation: A-Q8, R4) (Photographs on request)

        The Remains of Sir Fulk Grevill Lord Brooke: being Poems of Monarchy and Religion Never Before Printed

      London: Printed by T.N. for Henry Herringman, 1670. First edition. A4,B-O8. Lacking imprimatur leaf [A1] and final blank [O8]. [vi], 205 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Old sheep. Spine repaired, repairs to gutter of first four leaves, last leaf laid down to free endpaper, a few small private library stamps in text. Very good. First edition. A4,B-O8. Lacking imprimatur leaf [A1] and final blank [O8]. [vi], 205 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. "As a poet Greville has always been admired for the difficulty of his writing, but his reputation was never higher than in the twentieth century, especially in the United States, where his standing as a poet of the plain style could be attributed to the writings of Yvor Winters and his followers. Winters regarded Greville as a poet who 'should be ranked with Jonson as one of the two great masters of the short poem in the Renaissance'" (ODNB). Sound and attractive copy of this collection of the subversive verse treatises of Fulke Greville (1554-1628), courtier and author, and friend and champion of Sir Philip Sidney. The 'Remains' represents the first publication of his criticisms of monarchy and the established church, 'A Treatise of Religion' and 'A Treatise of Monarchy'. Uncommon. Wing B4900; Grolier 408

        Govierno general, moral y politico hallado en las Aves mas generosas, y nobles, sacado de sus naturales, virtudes, y propiedades le escrive el Padre Maestro Fray Andres Ferrer de Valdecebro.le consagra al gloriosissimo Padre, y apostol Valenciano San Vicente Ferrer.

      - Madrid, M. Alegre, 1670 (20.5 x 13.7 cm). 4to. [xl], 205 numbered leaves, 15 ll of "tabla general" (general index), one engraved portrait of San Vicente Ferrer and 18 engravings in the text, all of the birds discussed. Limp vellum with beautifully contemporary calligraphed title on the spine.l Rare first illustrated edition. An interesting mixture of fact and fancy that throws much light on popular ideas regarding the ornithology of Spain in the 17th century, in which (with some information of value) one finds the usual pious adjuncts to be expected from this author. Although Wood only quotes 17 plates, we think it should have 18, as our copy has. It deals with the Aguila (eagle), Buytre (buzzard), Cigueña (stork), Garza or Garça (heron), Cisne (swan), Fenix, Pelicano (but the illustration suggests that the writer did not know this bird), Halcon (falcon), Gavilan (harrier), Buho (owl), Grulla (crane), Papagayo (parrot), Ansaron (goose), Avestruz (ostrich), Pavo Real (peacock), Cuervo (crow), Paloma (pigeon), and the Gallo (chicken). The leaf numbering is not entirely consistent. Some marginal foxing and one right corner of the text (p. 143) with some slight loss of paper, but without touching the text itself. Later flyleaves and a library stamp on the title page. Palau mentions a first, unillustrated edition from 1668. However, we find no references to that edition elsewhere. In any case, this is the first illustrated edition, including an engraved portrait of the author. The Licencia de la Orden is dated 30 de Setiembre 1669, the Aprobation Octubre 23 de 1669. Several later editions appeared. Jerez, p. 43; Palau, 90597; Wood, p. 339. [Attributes: First Edition]

About the author: Richard Mason (Angelus of St. Francis Mason, O.F.M.) (1599-1678), was an English Franciscan friar and writer active in the 17th century. He was ordained by an Irish Catholic Bishop around 1624. He left the secular priesthood to become a Recollect friar. Having gone to the friaryseminary of St Bonaventure at Douai, he was approved for missionary work in England in 1632 but was recalled two years later to become vicar and novice-master at St Bonaventure's, dedicated to serving the needs of the English mission. By 1637, Mason had become superior of St Bonaventures, and professor of thelogy. During the 1650s, Mason returned to England, and in 1659 was created doctor of divinity. Mason was at Douai in 1663 but for much of the next decade he was at Wardour, Wiltshire, the only Franciscan in the Arundell family's long roll of Catholic chaplains. He served as chaplain to Henry, third Lord Arundell and in dedicating to his patron "A Liturgical Discourse of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass," Mason extolled his piety and his royalist role in the civil wars.

      Hamburg [i.e. Amsterdam]: Heinrich Künrath [i.e. Jan Rieuwertsz], 1670. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (198 x 155 mm). [12], 233 [1] pp., without the final blank. Collation: (*)4 (**)2 A-Z4 Aa-Ff4 Gg2 (-Gg2) with *1r title, *1v blank, *2r Praefatio, **2r Index capitum, A1r text, Gg1v Errata, error in signature: (*)4 for (*)3. Without the final blank. Roman, italic and Hebrew type. Woodcut printer's floral yoke ornament on title and a reduced version on (**)v. Contemporary calf (boards and extremities rubbed, binding a bit weak but holding firm, lower spine defective with some loss of leather). Occasional light browning and insignificant spotting, a few annotation in light pencil. ----PMM 153; F. Bamberger, The Early Editions of Spinoza's Tractatus Theologico-Politicus, in: Studies in Bibliography and Booklore, vol. 5, 1962, pp.9-33, T.4; Kingma-Offenberg 6. FIRST EDITION, a yet unknown (or mixed) issue with Künrath misspelled "Künraht", preface leaf (*)3 missigned (*)4 and p.130 misnumbered 830, but p.104 correctly numbered. The date in the imprint is given as "cI? I? cLXX. The errata on p.(234) lists 13 typographical errors of which only those on pp. 8, 22, 39 and 41 are already corrected in text. The features of title and preface conform to variant T.2a (with the typesetting conforming with T.1 but slightly larger sized yoke ornament (37 x 50 mm), the missigned leaf (*)4, and the smaller ornament on (**)v in first state. The text itself rather conforms to variant T.4 with p.130 misnumbered 830. The Tractatus Theologico-Politicus (A Treatise on Political Theology) was Spinoza's first great work (and the only work published in his lifetime). It blends the traditions of his Hebraic background with Cartesian rationalism, the philosophy he adopted following his break with Jewish orthodoxy in 1656. The Tractatus extends his ethical views into the realm of politics, and contains the first clear statement of the mutual independence of philosophy and religion. "Man is moved to the knowledge and love of God; the love of God involves the love of our fellow men. Man, in order to obtain security, surrenders part of his right of independent action to the State. But the State exists to give liberty, not to enslave; justice, wisdom and toleration are essential to the sovereign power" (PMM 153). Very Good.

        Leiden wandkaart - Christian Hagen, 1670.

      MAJESTUEUZE WANDKAART VAN LEIDEN?Lugdunum Batavorum ANo. 1670.? Kopergravure gedrukt van 12 platen. De befaamde 'GROTE HAGEN' ?Afgemeten en Afgeteykent door Johan Douw De Jonge?? en gegraveerd door Christiaen van Hagen. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (gravure h x b) ca. 165 x 181 cm . (Lijst: ca. 188 x 202 cm.)Wandkaart van Leiden, plattegrond met een panorama van de stad gezien vanuit het zuiden. Links met afbeeldingen van het stadhuis, ?Pancras-? ook wel Hooglandse Kerk, Pieters Kerk en Mare Kerk. Rechts de burcht, lakenhal, universiteit met hortus en de door geldgebrek nimmer verder dan de fundamenten gebouwde Nieuw Gefundeerde Kerk. Bovenaan de door festoenen verbonden wapens van de stad en van de vier regerende burgemeesters. Op de kaart zijn cartouches met allegorische figuren afgebeeld met genummerde aanwijzing van namen van straten en gebouwen en van de schout en 40 raden.Aan het eind van de 16de- en in de eerste helft van de 17de-eeuw werd de bebouwing in het middeleeuwse stadsdeel sterk verdicht. Door overbevolking, verschuivingen in de sociale samenstelling van de bevolking en functieverandering van huizen en grachten, werden erven en binnenplaatsen volgebouwd met achtersteegjes; de zgn. poorten. De daaraan gelegen arbeiderswoningen waren zeer klein en vaak van slechte kwaliteit. Om te kunnen voorzien in het steeds nijpender gebrek aan ruimte werd de stad in de eerste helft van de 17e eeuw in een aantal uitleggen fors uitgebreid. Voor een deel zijn dit voor de hand liggende opvullingen van relatief kleine percelen tegen de oude stadsgrens aan. Bij al deze uitbreidingen heeft het stadsbestuur met wisselend succes geprobeerd de inrichting van de kavels en de bebouwing aan regels te onderwerpen. De uitgangspunten daarbij waren een mengsel van stedenbouwkundige, sociale, milieutechnische en welstandelijke argumenten. Door de grote aantallen arbeiders en kleine ambachtslui, werd er in de nieuwe wijken vooral voor hen gebouwd. De stad probeerde door de aanleg van brede, voorname grachten als de Oude Vest ook voornamere bebouwing te stimuleren, maar de eenvoudige en eenvormige kleine en middelgrote huizen beheersten het straatbeeld.Na voltooiing van de stadsuitbreidingen werd in 1667 opdracht verleend voor het vervaardigen een nieuwe grote kaart van Leiden. Op dat moment heeft de stad ca. 65.000 inwoners. In overeenstemming zowel met de nieuwe omvang als met de vermaardheid van Leiden, moest het een waardig stuk propaganda worden.De landmeter van Rijnland Jan Dou (1642-1690) heeft meer dan anderhalf jaar nodig voor de ontwerptekening klaar is. Voor het graveren en uitgeven wordt eerst de bekende Joan Blaeu gecontracteerd, maar door een grote brand die Blaeu?s drukkerij in vlammen doet opgaan, wordt bijna al het werk verricht door Christiaen van Hagen (ca. 1635-1688).Naar de grote plattegrond met stadsgezichten die uiteindelijk verschijnt in 1674, wordt in 1675 ook een kleinere wandkaart gemaakt (de zgn. 'Kleine Hagen').Literatuur: E. Pelinck, ?De kaart van Hagen?? in Leids Jaarboekje (1954), pp. 113-127Prijs: ? 21.500,- (incl. lijst).

Johann Melchior Goeze, Verzeichnis seiner Sammlung seltener und merkwürdiger Bibeln. Hamburg 1778. Band 2, Nr. 612). - In unserem Exemplar sind die ersten drei Buchstaben von "Fegfeuer" alt mit Tinte geschwärzt. - Ohne das Titelkupfer und ohne die Seiten 1205/1206 und 1207/1208. - Vorsatz später erneuert und gebräunt, Titel alt aufgezogen und an geschmutzt.
