        Hocsieu with its suburbs / Hocsieu met de voor Stadt.

      [London, 1671]. - Copper engraving. 285:720 mm. Matted. Top left notes to the letters (A-D) in English and Dutch. After the Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie was driven out of Taiwan in 1662, it tried to gain access to the porcelain and silk trade at the port of Fuzhou, which was then also known as Hocksiew. However, the Company's attempts to trade there were hampered by a string of bureaucratic restrictions. As early as 1655 a Dutch delegation had visited the Imperial court in Peking (Beijing), but had had little opportunity to discuss trading conditions. A visit of this kind was regarded solely as a token of the respect to which the emperor was entitled. In 1666 a second delegation was sent to Peking Beijing. It was led by the ambassador Pieter van Hoorn. But aside from some dazzling descriptions of China, this journey also yielded nothing. Although the trading post at Fuzhou barely made a profit, the VOC kept it on until 1681.

        Geometria especulativa, y pratica de los planos, y solidos.

      - Valencia-imp. Geronimo Villagrassa, 1671.4º [8], 176 p. (sign. [calderón]4, A-Y4). Ilustr. con 4 láminas calcográficas plegadas. Capitulares xilográficas. Enc. en pergamino, lomera rotulada, restos de antiguos cierres. Primera edición de la geometría del jesuita José Zaragoza (1627-c.1679), profesor en la Universidad de Valencia y más adelante en los colegios jesuitas de Calatayud, Palma, Barcelona y Valencia. En 1670 fue nombrado profesor de matemáticas del Colegio Imperial de Madrid, donde Juan Carlos de Andosilla, cosmógrafo real, le asistió en sus tareas. En la geometría trata primero de la ciencia especulativa y después de la práctica, que depende de la primera. Los proemiales constituyen un apartado común que recoge las definiciones y con el cual el autor pretendió: "socorrer la memoria de lo que cada libro contiene; facilitar la enseñanza con la brevedad, y claridad que de esta reduccion se sigue; no confundir la inteligencia de los Autores, que citan a Euclides, pues un libro corresponde a otro, y aunque el numero de las proposiciones es diferente, si se atiende a la especie, luego se encontrarà la correspondiente." CCPB 000048960-3. Palau (379537) se refiere a la obra como Euclides Nuevo-Antiguo: Geometria. que es el título con el que aparecería en 1678. (10922-L3). MATEMÁTICAS.

        Odes sacrées ..., détachées du corps de ses ouvrages.Brussels, Gilles Stryckwant, 1738. 4to. With a woodcut coat of arms of Austria on title-page. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gold-tooled spine and board edges.

      H.A. Grubbs, Jean-Baptiste Rousseau: his life and works, p. 226; not in Cioranescu; Tchemerzine. First edition of a collection of sacred songs in verse selected from his own works by Jean Baptiste Rousseau (1671-1741), most of them based on psalms and a few on other biblical texts. Born in Paris, Rousseau published his Cantates françoises around 1705 and established a good reputation for his lyrics. His lampoons and some obscene verses supposedly written by him occasionally got him into trouble, but he had a promising career ahead of him when he published his Oeuvres in 1712. In that year, however, a dispute over offensive verses supposedly written by him forced him into exile in Brussels. He lived there and elsewhere abroad for the rest of his life, sometimes publishing selections of his work, such as the present one, and returning to Paris only for a clandestine visit around the time he published the present collection. Although his poetry appears to have sold fairly well and his lyrics continued in demand with musicians, he remained in financial straits, his exile perhaps making it difficult to gain the patronage essential to success in that day. Rousseau gained greater fame posthumously, especially as the creator of the "French cantate" and is still considered the best French lyricist of the period. With the author's signed autograph presentation inscription to l'Abbé Cochard on an endleaf and a couple corrections in the text, also in his hand. With one quire slightly browned and further occasional minor foxing or a small marginal stain, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. The chemicals used to mottle the leather have eaten away its surface in places and the spine has been repaired at the head, foot and hinges, but the binding is now structurally sound.

        De Nieuwe en Onbekende Weereld: of Beschryving van America en 't Zuid-Land.

      Amsterdam Jacob Meurs 1671 - Folio (30.5 x 19.4 cm). Engraved allegorical title (small repair along fore-margin), letterpress title printed in black and red with vignette. Folding engraved general map of America, 47 double-page engraved plates (7 folding, including 15 maps, the remaining 32 mostly comprising town views), 7 portraits and 69 text engravings (a little browned and spotted). Modern binding of early vellum manuscript waste, a very good example. First edition of "a classic book on America and is much sought after by collectors of Americana as it contains, on p. 124, one of the first views of New York Novum Amsterodamum" (Borba de Moraes). The text engraving on p. 213 shows the crowning of Sir Francis Drake by the California Native Americans. This monumental work by the Dutch writer Arnoldus Montanus (1625?-83) reflects the fascination of seventeenth century Europe with the New World. Montanus was a Protestant minister and headmaster of the Latin School in the town of Schoonhoven. He wrote books on church history, theology, the history of the Low Countries, and the peoples and cultures of the Americas. Montanus never visited the New World and his work contains numerous errors and fantastic conceptions about the people and animals of the Americas. Nonetheless, it became a standard work in Europe and was widely read for many years. The publisher of the work was the Amsterdam bookseller and engraver Jacob van Meurs, who was active from 1651 to 1680 and specialized in works of history, geography, and travelogues. The book is lavishly illustrated with 125 copper engravings, including 32 folded views, 70 plates, 16 maps, and 7 unusually handsome portraits of famous explorers, each surrounded by baroque framed borders. In contrast to later editions this copy includes early strong impressions of the plates, which illustrate the customs, festivals, occupations, religious rites and battles of the native Indians. This issue includes the portrait of Maurice of Nassau (not mentioned in the index) and one of the first views of New Amsterdam, "without any doubt, the handsomest, and. the most agreeable view of Dutch New York" (Asher's Bibliographical Essay, p.23). Borba de Moraes, p. 586; Church 613; Phelps Stokes I, 142-143 and VI, 262; Sabin 50086. [Attributes: First Edition]

        LES SECRETS de la Medecine des Chinois, consistant en la parfaite connoissance du pouls. Envoyez de la Chine par un Francois, Homme de grand merite.

      Grenoble: P. Charvvs, 1671, 12, (6), 135, (1), (5), pp., contemporary sheep, spine gilt fresh and bright, a fine copy. Chinese & Japanese Ground Breaking Medical Text !First edition of an exceptionally rare book, it is "the first Western book on Chinese medicine, with a few brief comments on Japanese methods. This anonymous collection of translations of early Chinese texts on pulse medicine has been variously attributed to different Jesuits working in China at the time." Garrison & MortonThis work gives the first account in the West of the Chinese theory of pulses and of the theory and practice of acupuncture. The text appears to be a Compilation of Chinese texts translated or summarized and seems to be a partial source for the two books generally credited with giving the first Western accounts of Chinese medicine: Andreas Cleyer's Specimen Medicinae Sinicae (Frankfurt: 1682) and Michal Piotr Boym's Clavis Medica ad Chinarum doctrinam de pulsibus (Nuremberg: 1686).The authorship of this book is not known. The Wellcome and NLM catalogues site the following as authors, or possible authors, while noting the reservations of Grmek: Louis-Augustin Alemand (1643-1728), Michel Boym (1612-59), and Julien Placide Flervieu (1671-1746), but dates alone rule out all three. The author, a Jesuit, States that he is writing from Canton in 1668, having been ejected from Peking along with his fellow Christians. M.D.Grmek, in "Les Reflets de la Sphygmologie chinoise dans la Medecine occidentale," Biologie medicale, Vol. 51 (1962), pp. lix-lxiii proposes as possible candidates the Jesuit fathers Jean Valat, Adrien Greslon, Humbert Augery, Jacques Le Favre, Claude and Jacques Motal and Philippe Couplet. However there is no convincing evidence for any attribution.During the last third party of the 17th century, the first monographs written by Westerners on the theoretical and practical aspects of the pulse diagnosis in Chinese medicine are published in Europe. Their influence was important as for the interest and for the knowledge about the far eastern practices of health in West. The first one of these books, a work written in French, entitled Les Secrets de la Médecine des Chinois consistant en la parfaite connaissance du Pouls , published in 1671, was initially awarded, by mistake, to Louis Augustine ALLEMAND. Historians and sinologists wondered a long time about the real author and about the precise Chinese sources of this treatise of sphygmology.No copy of this book is located by OCLC in the U.S. (although there is a copy at NLM)."Brown is the first institution in the Northeast to hold a copy and one of only seven institutions worldwide."

C'était comme un Almanach royal pour l'Angleterre ; et cet annuaire officieux était aussi le plus sérieux, le plus aisé à manier des traités constitutionnels et administratifs. Les éditions anglaises se succédaient de façon à être sans cesse tenues à jour ; la traduction française fut elle aussi plusieurs fois rééditée, en 1688, en 1692 et 1698, par les soins de de Neuville, et à la suite de la refonte générale de la dix-huitième édition anglaise, refaite complètement en 1701 et 1702 par les mêmes traducteurs."
