        (Terrae- Mariae) Nova (et) Virginiae Tabula

      Amsterdam, 1671. No Binding. Near Fine. 11 3/8 x 13 7/8 inche. Fine hand color; old manuscript additions to title, excellent condition. Attractively colored example of this edition of Capt. John Smith's landmark map, based on the first survey of the Chesapeake Bay. Curiously, the map is illustrated with images of a llama, goat, and unicorn, which were evidently considered by Europeans to be native to Virginia. In early ink, Maryland ("Terre-Mariae") was added to the title. Although the map itself is based on the Blaeu-Hondius engraving of the Smith map, all three cartouches on Ogilby-Montanus were newly added. Tooley, America, Derivative 8, pp. 168-69; Stephenson & McKee, Map I-6, pp. 30-1.

Paris, chez L. Vendosme, 1671. Liten 8:o. Extra grav. titelblad,(13,1 blank),189,200-01 s. Med grav. illustrationer i texten. Fint stänkdekorerat pappbd från 1700-talets slut med nött rosa titeletikett i papp. Stänkta snitt. Sista sidan förstärkt i yttermarginalen. Ett äldre försättsblad med gamla anteckningar, sannolikt av Warmholtz, medbundet.. Bring Itineraria Svecana 55. Schiötz Itineraria Norvegica 563a***. Vare sig Bring eller Schiötz har uppmärksammat hoppet i pagineringen, dock rättar den senare uppgiften i sitt supplement. Som vanligt saknas det grav. porträttet av författaren, vilket i enstaka fall återfinns på baksidan av "extraict du privilege du roy". Detta är den första upplagan av la Martinières reseskildring. Författaren var en fransk läkare, sannolikt född i Rouen, och den förste fransman, som publicerat en sjöresa längs norra Europas kust. Han befann sig i Köpenhamn, då det dansk-norska handelskompaniet beslöt sig för att skicka tre fartyg till kusterna längst upp i norr för att inhämta upplysningar om eventuella affärsmöjligheter. Under denna färd, som tog sin början i februari 1653, besökte författaren även Bohuslän, men vad han skriver om detta landskap är mycket obetydligt. Han kan även möjligen ha besökt svenska lappmarken

Aimed at the richer end of the market, this second edition, an expensive and profusely illustrated folio, with additions including a discussion of divination by moles, was issued at a price of 10 shillings. Reflecting his practice as an astrological physician, it is essentially a practical composition, including material drawn from earlier and contemporary continental writers such as Michael Scot, Paracelsus, Della Porta, Cardano, Goclenius, Robert Fludd and Jean Belot.

        The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and Other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church of England Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David Pointed as they are to be Sung or Said in Churches

The work of 1549 was the first prayer book to include the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English. It contained Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, the Litany, and Holy Communion and also the occasional services in full: the orders for Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage, &#39;prayers to be said with the sick&#39; and a Funeral service. With the Old and New Testaments,commonly known as the King James Version, an English translation of the Christian Bible by the Church of England begun in 1604 and completed in 1611.

      London: Printed by Tho. Milbourn for Robert Clavel, Tho. Passinger, William Cadman, William Whiswood, Tho. Sawbridge, adn William Birch, 1671. Hard Cover. Very Good. Hard Cover. Fourth Edition very much enlarged. This edition includes the first appearance of descriptions of four American "plantations." English clergyman Samuel Clark (1599 - 1683) was a noted Puritan biographer. A supporter of Cromell, he was ejected from the church in 1662 soon after Charles II was restored to power. Clark was a prolific writer who claimed at one point to have written over 8000 pages of text (though much of his writings were really compilations of works of others). This is an interesting collection of works ranging from religion to geography to art. In A Mirrour or Looking-Glass (parts I and II), Clarke discuses a variety of attributes & afflictions such as abstinence, adultery, conjugal love, deceit, hypocrites, patience, superstition, vanity. He sites relevant Bible verses and examples from history to support he views of each subject addressed. The second work A Geographical Description of all the Countries of the World gives a brief though opinionated description of each country with the inclusion of random facts. For example: "Bengala is a large country ... the inhabitants are a most subtle, and wicked people: Men, and Women given much to uncleanness ... Adultery is punished with the losse of their noses. In this Country are many Rhinoceroses." The third section discuss the four main plantations of the English in America (Virginia, New England, Bermudas, and Barbados). In the fourth section Examples of the Wonderful Works of God in the Creatures, Clarke briefly describes amazing or unusual plants, beasts, fish, rivers, and works by man. The second volume comprised of an addition to "A Mirrour" includes further thoughts on many attributes discussed in part one along with a few new ones. This set is bound in the original leather boards with gilt leather title and volume labels to spines. Both volumes have been expertly rebacked using the original boards. The spines are not original but they are early; they date from the mid to late 1700s. The boards and spines are scuffed and well-worn. The leather along the head of spine of volume one chipped and beginning to pull. The interiors are foxed with occasional spots of soiling, closed tears, and worm holes. There is dampstaining to the bottom edges of Volume I. Very good condition. All edges are red. Looking-Glass 702 pages; Geographical Description of all the Countries of the World 293 pages; Four Chief Plantations of the English in America 85 pages; Examples of the Wonderful Works of God in the Creatures 35 pages; Looking-Glass part II 772 pages.

In common with all of Ogilby&#39;s travel works (it is the second in a series which also included Africa, Asia, and Britannia), the book is a well-produced compilation of extant translations and others&#39; accounts, a common practice at that time. The bulk of Ogilby&#39;s America is taken from Arnoldus Montanus&#39;s De Nieuwe en Onbekeende Weereld, published at Amsterdam the same year, supplemented with information on New England, New France, Maryland, and Virginia supplied to Ogilby by the proprietors of these colonies. There are two issues of the book. The first had only Dutch map and views, and these were replaced in the second issue by a number of important maps drafted from English materials, for example the map of Barbados present here.

        SEÑORA. DON PEDRO COLON DE PORTUGAL Y CASTRO...[caption title]

      [Madrid. 1671].. 16 leaves. Folio. Dbd. Upper outer corners numbered in contemporary manuscript. Minute toning at foredge, primarily on first leaf. Overall very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The petition of Don Pedro Nuño Colon de Portugal, descendant of the explorer, Christopher Columbus, and sixth Duke of Veragua and Marquis of Jamaica, requesting that Mariana of Austria, Queen Regent of Charles II of Spain, make some compensation for the loss of income the Duke had suffered since the British took Jamaica in 1655. Jamaica had been the exclusive fief of the descendants of Columbus since 1536 when it was given as a reward to the family. This document is dated 1671 by the text at the top of the second leaf, where the Duke refers to Spain&#39;s cession of Jamaica to Great Britain "last year in 1670." Despite this date, some scholars assert a date of 1672. Since most of the text is devoted to the life of Columbus, the document is, by default, also one of the few early biographies of the explorer. In his argument the Duke puts special emphasis on the tremendous gain Spain received by virtue of his ancestor&#39;s discovery. In citing various sources he estimates that within the first 170 years after its discovery, the New World had produced for Spain some one billion, 190 million pesos. Despite these figures, the present heir to Columbus&#39; titles and estates was reduced to an income of sixteen thousand ducats. The Duke mentions no specific amount of compensation that he would like for Jamaica, but points out that Puerto Rico is of approximately the same worth. The last four pages are a glowing description of Jamaica, its towns, people, products, etc., ending with an itemized accounting of just how much rent the island had produced annually for the Duke before the British occupation (40,950 pesos silver). Two years after this petition was printed, the Duke was made the 26th viceroy of New Spain - a fair reward for the loss of Jamaica. His term, however, was short. He reigned only six days before dying in Mexico City. "This is the final petition sent to the throne of Spain, and contains a long account of the various descendants of Columbus and their claims on Spain, an account of Jamaica, and a list of the various dues received from Jamaica" - Maggs. The previously mentioned biographical content of the present document is important. It is possibly an assimilation of the sixteen-page folio manuscript of the life of Columbus written by Juan de Solorzano Pereira, the famous Spanish jurist and fiscal of the Council of the Indies in 1628, responsible for the great work on colonial American law, the POLITICA INDIANA, published in 1629. In that manuscript Solorzano states that it was composed at the request of the Duke&#39;s branch of the Columbus family, forty- two years before the present document was printed. The Solorzano manuscript is described in the LeClerc catalogue of 1878 (item 137), along with other documents relating to the Duke&#39;s branch of the family. One of the earliest Columbus biographies, married to an eloquent plea by his impoverished heirs. Extremely rare. Palau locates only one copy of the original, at the Real Academia de la Historia. EUROPEAN AMERICANA locates two more (Huntington and British Library). Not on OCLC. The petition was reprinted by the Mill Press in San Francisco in 1992. PALAU 57250. BIBLIOGRAPHIA COLOMBINA, p.190.

        America: being the latest, and most accurate description of the New World ... Collected from most authentick authors, augmented with later observations and adorn&#39;d with maps and sculptures, by John Ogilby

      London: Printed by the Author, 1671. Folio. (16 1/8 x 10 1/4 inches). Title printed in red and black. Engraved frontispiece (a &#39;before-letters&#39; issue), 37 plates (6 portraits, 31 views and plans [2 of these folding, 29 double-page]), 19 maps (2 folding, 17 double-page), 66 engraved illustrations. Contemporary calf, covers tooled in blind with a central panel enclosing a lozenge with foliate cornerpieces, expertly rebacked preserving original red morocco lettering piece and &#39;FFF&#39; ownership stamp at foot. First issue of Ogilby&#39;s first edition of this important work. The work is an English translation of Arnold Montanus De Nieuwe en Onbekende Weereld, but with a number of additions concerning New England, New France, Maryland and Virginia. The work is divided into three books or sections and an appendix: the first gives an overall survey of the most important voyages and expeditions to the Americas, the second book offers a description of Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, Bermuda and North America, the third deals with South America and the appendix includes a miscellany of information including notes on the "Unknown South-Land," the Arctic region and the search for the North-West passage. There is some bibliographic confusion over the various issues of the first edition. This copy complete with the "Arx Carolina" view and the "Virginia pars Australis & Florida" map, and the engraving on p. 200. Arents 315A; cf. Baer (Md) 70A-C; cf.

        DE NIEUWE EN ONBEKENDE WEERELD: OF BESCHRYVING VAN AMERICA EN &#39;TZUID-LAND

      Amsterdam: Jacob Meurs, 1671.. [8],585,[27]pp. plus seven portraits, thirty- two double-page plates, large folding hemispheric map, and fifteen double-page maps. Seventy engraved in-text illustrations. Engraved title. Thick folio. Original vellum, blindstamped cover, raised bands, manuscript title on spine. Internally clean and near fine. Minor repairs to hemispheric map. An excellent copy of this foundation work of Americana. With map credited to Jacob Meurs. Correctly called "a classic book on America" by Borba de Moraes, Montanus&#39; narrative contains a wealth of interesting maps and illustrations on both North and South America. The work was later translated into English, with various alterations, by John Ogilby, but this Dutch edition is the true first. The North American section of Montanus contains notable versions of the Blaeu map of New England and New Netherland, as well as versions of the John Smith Virginia and Carolina maps. Among the engravings in the text is one of the first engraved views of New York (the very first, the Van der Donck view, appeared twenty years earlier). There is also a detailed map of Bermuda. There are numerous engraved views of cities and scenes in Mexico and the Caribbean. Much of the second half of the volume is devoted to Brazil, where the Dutch were deeply involved for decades in the 17th century, illustrated with numerous maps and views. The large double-sheet views are excellent and much copied in later publications; but, as Church comments: "The finely executed engravings of this work are especially brilliant in this, the original edition." Howes states that the portrait of the Prince of Nassau, present herein, only appears in the first issue. The large map, credited here to "Gerardum a Schaden," as stated in Borba de Moraes, is also sometimes credited to "Jacobum Meursium," the publisher of the book. One of the most interesting iconographic and cartographic sources of early Americana. CHURCH 613. HOWES M733, "b." ASHER, NEW NETHERLAND 14. SABIN 50086. SERVIES 200.

Second and enlarged edition of these two great botanical works. Bauhin's 'Pinax' and 'Prodromus' ushered in a new era for botany, establishing it as a science in its own right, distinct from its herbal/medical affiliations. "The progress of botanical science... reaches its highest point in the labours of Gaspard Bauhin, as regards both the naming and describing of the individual plants and their classification according to likeness of habit... The descriptions of species in the 'Prodromus'... notice all obvious parts of the plants with all possible brevity and in fixed order...; the description of a single species is here in fact developed into an art and becomes a diagnoses. A still higher value must be set on the fact, that in Gaspard Bauhin the distinction between species and genus is fully and consciously carried out; every plant has with him a generic and specific name, and this binary nomenclature which Linnaeus is usually thought to have founded, is almost perfectly maintained by Bauhin, especially in the 'Pinax'" (Sachs p. 33).

Nogle sider med nogen brunering. Indbundet i nyt helpergamentbind i gammel stil.. "Den store Prosodia Danica (1671) blev først efter hans død udgivet af hans enke. De almindelige sprogbetragtninger som fylder den første halvdel var allerede forældede fordi Peder Syv's "Betænkninger" imellemtiden (1663) var udkommet, men et og andet har dog værdi ... Han fremhæver stærkt det danske sprogs rigdom på sammensatte ord og går imod unødvendig brug af fremmedord og fremmede stroper og fraser som tit kan gengives ved en god dansk vending. Ikke blot i selve den omstændighed at han har skrevet sin bog på dansk og derved er blevet forgænger for Syv, men også i bestemte udtalelser kommer hans kærlighed til det danske sprog frem". (Marius Kristensen). Udgivet med kommentarer i "Danske Metrikere" ved A. Arnholtz og Erik Dal, 1954-60. Bibl. Dan. VI,70. Peter Jensen 104. Judichær var præst i Slangerup, hvor han er begravet og hvor hans epithapiemaleri kan ses. Han efterfulgtes af Thomas Kingo

      PHAEDRUS || AXÉN, Petrus (utg.) Phaedri, Augusti Liberti, fabularum æsopiarum libri quinque cum prioribus ac posterioribus notis Nicolai Rigaltii dum viveret, christianssimo Regia bibliotheca, & in suprema Metensi curia a consiliss Petrus Axen, h. s. recensuit, suasque notas adjecit. Hamburg, Joannis Naumanni, Jo. F. & Georgii Wolfii, 1671. 8:o. (56),+ 119, 122-123,122-123, 126-191,+ (blank),+ (4),+ 1-147,+ (1) s. Titel tryckt i rött och svart. Fläckar och enstaka understryckningar med bläck. Sista preliminärbladet med reva i marginalen och ett blad med äldre papperslagning. Samtida pergamentband. Äldre ägaranteckning av Nils Hendrich Teet och därefter av Carolus Björner 1708, på titelbladet, och sedan av Carl Nordin och andra. Schweiger II, s. 732. Axéns noter omfattar endast första boken. Inkorporerat är även Johannes Schefferus biografiska skiss över Phaedrus. Karl Björner var bror till antikvarien Erik Julius Björner och Nils Henrik Teet var deras morbror, som dock blev ihjälslagen som ung. Enligt anteckningar av Bengt Löw var Axén svensk och borde således funnits med i Collijn, men så är ej fallet. Petrus Axén (1635-1707) var jurist och filolog från Schleswig-Holstein och som även hade diplomatiska uppdrag, bl.a. i Köpenhamn
