        Amsterdam - Frederik de Wit, 1671-1675.

      DE GOUDEN EEUW VAN AMSTERDAM?Exactissima Amstelodami Veteris Et Novissimi Delineato? [Het oude Amsterdam exact en volgens de laatste weergave.] Kopergravure vervaardigd door Frederick de Wit en Adriaen van de Velde, zeldzame losse uitgegave uit ca. 1671-1675. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 53 x 62,5 cm (en is daarmee iets groter dan de in atlassen opgenomen plattegronden van Amsterdam).Frederik de Wit toont op deze kaart van Amsterdam het stadsbeeld van ongeveer tien jaar na het ontwerp voor de vierde uitleg van stadsarchitect Dani?l Stalpaert. De bebouwing van het nieuwe gebied is nog zeer beperkt. De eerste uitgave van deze kaart van De Wit laat het meest oorspronkelijke plan voor de inrichting van de Plantage zien. De kavelstructuur werd anders nadat stadsarchitect Jacob Bosch in 1682 een alternatief inrichtingsplan voor de plantage maakte. Zijn verkaveling zien we terug op de tweede en derde uitgave van de plattegrond (uit ca. 1682 en resp. 1682-1685). De eerste uitgave moet gedrukt zijn tussen 1671 en 1675. Het bestuur van de Portugese Synagoge had het definitieve ontwerp van hun gebouw gekozen in 1671. Het kwam gereed in 1675 en staat op de kaart ingetekend, maar zonder legendanummer en vermelding. Opgenomen is ook een complex dat aangeduid wordt met de Stadstimmertuin op de hoek van de Singelgracht en Amstel. De feitelijke Timmertuin ligt er echter naast.De kaart is aan de onderzijde voorzien van twee decoraties en een fraai stadsprofiel. De ontwerpen voor de decoraties zijn getekend door Adriaen van de Velde, hoogstwaarschijnlijk kort voor zijn dood, in 1671. Zijn tekeningen tonen allegorie?n op de vier werelddelen. Linksonder zien we de mythologische prinses Europa gezeten op een stier (een vermomde Zeus) en Azi? met een kameel en een wierookvat, rechtsonder Afrika met een leeuw en een schorpioen in de hand. Amerika heeft een pijl en boog in de hand en zit op een krokodil (al lijkt deze meer op een leguaan of zelfs een varaan). Boven het stadsprofiel zien we handelsgod Mercurius met zijn eenheid beschermende staf en een aantal putti die bezig zijn met plaatsbepaling door middel van een Jakobsstaf, dieptemeting door middel van een dieplood en met een passer globes van hemel en aarde bestuderen. Ook liggen er atlassen en kaarten, Amsterdam was immers het middelpunt van de wereld van de cartografie.Prijs: ?3.950,-.

        De Inventoribvs Rerum Libri VIII. Et de Prodigiis Libri III. Cum Indicibus locupletissimis.

      Amstelodami Apud Danielem Elzevirivm, cI¿ I¿c Lxxxi. [Amsterdam: Daniel Elsevier: 1671.] - 12mo., 13 cms., pp [2] engraved title, verso blank, [38], 511, [1] blank, [vi], 100, [92] index. Deep carmine grained calf, heavily tooled in blind, gilt fillets on boards, backstrip heavily tooled and lettered within four compartments. Small area of lower board scuffed with a little surface loss to tooling. Slight old worm damage to lower free endpaper and pastedown. All edges gilt. From the library of George Spencer-Churchill, 5th Duke of Marlborough (1766-1840) with his arms in gilt on upper and lower boards with a marquess's coronet above 'a ducal coronet a griffin's head and wings gorged with a bar gemelle.' University of Toronto Libraries. 'In 1798 though, they moved to the handsome Italianate mansion on an 80-acre Whiteknights Park estate at Earley, which the Marlborough trustees had recently purchased . The house itself was magnificently furnished in 'splendour worthy of a Royal residence' . Its chief treasures, however, were kept in its World-famous library. The Marquis was a bibliophile of the first order . '. Royal Berkshire History by David Nash Ford, online. The duke's estates were seized and sold off to pay his mounting debts. Harriet Arbuthnot, the diarist, commented after a visit to Blenheim in 1824: 'The present duke is overloaded with debt, is very little better than a common swindler and lets everything about Blenheim. People may shoot and fish at so much per hour and it has required all the authority of a Court of Chancery to prevent his cutting down all trees in the park. ¿Polydore Vergil, original name Polidoro Vergilio (born c. 1470, Urbino, Urbino and Pesaro¿died April 18, 1555, Urbino), Italian-born Humanist who wrote an English history that became required reading in schools and influenced the 16th-century English chroniclers Edward Hall and Raphael Holinshed and, through them, Shakespeare. Vergil was educated in Padua and perhaps in Bologna. After he was ordained priest, he was given various appointments in England by the papal chancery, initially in 1502 as subcollector of Peter¿s Pence (a contribution to the pope). In 1508 he was made archdeacon of Wells. He became friends with such English Humanists as Sir Thomas More, William Grocyn, and John Colet, and remained in England, with periodic visits to Italy, until 1550, when he returned to Urbino. Among Vergil¿s important works were Proverbiorum libellus (1498), known as the Adagia, a collection of proverbs and aphorisms with comments and moralistic reflections; De rerum inventoribus (1499), a popular, often reprinted treatise on inventions ¿ ¿ Encyclopedia Britannica online.

Complete as issued. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked and recornered, later (but old) endpapers. Modern bookplate. First edition.

        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."

        Philosophia Pia; or, A Discourse of the Religious Temper, and Tendencies of the Experimental Philosophy, which is profest by the Royal Society. To which is annext A Recommendation, and Defence of Reason in the Affairs of Religion. By Jos. Glanvill . Fellow of the Royal Society. London: printed by J. Macock for James Collins, 1671.

      - Rare first edition by the Anglican philosopher and controversialist Joseph Glanvill, F.R.S. (1636-80), appearing three years after his strong defence of the scientific work of Royal Society in Plus Ultra. In response to that book, Henry Stubbe had published polemics including "'‘The Plus Ultra’ reduced to a ‘Non Plus’" (1670), calling the Society élitist and crypto-Catholic. Here in Philosophia Pia Glanvill counter-replies to Stubbe and other Aristotelians, arguing that the new natural philosophy reveals ever more fully the glory of God in his works of creation, thus reinforcing established religion and confuting atheism. Glanvill dedicates the work to the Anglican bishop of Salisbury, mathematician and astronomer Seth Ward, who was also a founder member of the Royal Society: 'My Lord, I expect that this discourse should meet with animadverters as soon as it peeps into the world; and if it be not encountered with rude and ruffian-like oppositions, it will fare better than some other papers of mine whose designs were as harmless and inoffensive. But whatever befalls these sheets, my assailants shall find, that I am none of those mean spirits that will so easily be hector'd into a Non-Plus; no, but since my ingaging in such a cause makes them angry, I shall yet provoke them more; for I laugh at their vain boastings, and despise their feeble malice'. PROVENANCE: there is no indication as to the identity of the early annotator, but a later owner's note on the rear endpaper reads 'Perfect, Bernard Quaritch, F.S. Ferguson, 27.vi.1916'. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Small 8vo, [vi], 234, [3] pp., contemporary blind-panelled calf, rubbed at extremities with loss to foot of spine, front and rear endpapers with contemporary annotations mentioning Robert Boyle, Seth Ward, etc., these endpapers a little dusty and with one small cornerpiece torn away, the first 3 leaves with a thin waterstain at the outer edges, otherwise internally fresh and bright, a very good copy.

        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]
