      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' 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.

      synonymiis & differentiis methodice secundum genera & species proponens. Basileae, Joannis Regis, 1671. 4to (242 x 185mm). pp. (24), 518, (22), with woodcut printer's mark on title (bound up with:) IDEM. Prodromus Theatri Botanici in quo plantae supra sexcentae ab ipso primum descriptae cum plurimis figuris proponuntur. Editio altera emendatior. Basileae, impensis Ioannis Regis, 1671. 4to. pp. (4), 160, (12), with woodcut printer's mark on title and 138 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary vellum. 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). Some foxing as usual. Stafleu & Cowan 367 & 366.

      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.

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".

Första och enda upplagan av Schefferus viktiga arbete om antika vagnar och fortskaffningsmedel, vilket idag betraktas som hans viktigaste bidrag till den klassiska arkeologin. Vid sidan av textbelägg använder han sig av tillgänglig bilddokumentation -huvudsakligen mynt- kombinerat med ett "... levande sinne för tekniska och kulturhistoriska realiteter". Utgåvan av Pyrrhus Ligorios "De vehiculis ...", i latinsk översättning från italienskan av Claudius Örnhielm och med noter av Schefferus, är första upplagan av detta arbete, och återfinns på sid. 369-412. Pyrrho Ligorio (1530-80) var arkitekt från Neapel och verksam i Rom och Ferrara. Hans efterlämnade samling av ritningar och manuskript kom genom omvägar att slutligen hamna i Turin, där Karl Emanuel av Savoyen köpte dem för 18.000 dukater. Drottning Kristina lät i Turin, på väg till Rom, kopiera 12 av volymerna, vilka sedan hamnade i Vatikanbiblioteket. Utifrån dessa kopior trycktes under 1600-talet ett flertal texter, bl.a. denna

      London: Printed by the Author, 1671.. Engraved frontispiece, thirty-seve plates (six portraits, thirty-one views and plans [two of these folding, twenty-nine double- page]), nineteen maps (two folding, seventeen double-page), sixty-six engraved illustrations. Ruled in red throughout, title printed in red and black. Folio. Contemporary English paneled calf gilt, covers with paneling tooled with fillets and roll tools, the inner panels with lozenge-shaped stylized floral-spray tools, expertly repaired, the spine in seven compartments with raised bands, green morocco lettering-pieces in the second and third compartments lettered in gilt, edges stained in gilt. Portrait facing p.60 expertly remargined, some small neat repairs to margins and folds. Very good. In a tan morocco-backed cloth box, lettered in gilt on spine. A very fine large copy of Ogilby's first edition of this important work, here ruled in red for presentation and including the rare Lords Proprietors map of Carolina. The binding, the size and the rubrication of this copy of Ogilby's most important publication all suggest that this copy was prepared for presentation. The ruling in red of a book (an essential part of manuscript production in the middle ages) had come to be a costly extra process by the second half of the 17th century, and one that was reserved for copies of books that were intended for presentation. The McGill University copy of Francis Willughby's ORNITHOLOGY (published in 1678) was edited by John Ray and presented by him to Samuel Pepys (probably when he was President of the Royal Society) - it is ruled in red. From the spine labels on the present volume which are lettered "Ogilby's / Atlas / Vol.3. / America" it is clear that this copy formed part of a collection of works published by Ogilby, that were placed under the general title of "Ogilby's Atlas" by the 18th-century owner and would probably have included his volumes on Africa, Asia, China and Japan. The present copy is also unusual in that it contains the so-called Lords Proprietors map "A New Discription [sic] of Carolina By Order of the Lords Proprietors" - a map that was commissioned by Ogilby for this work, but which was not included in the earlier issues of the book as it was apparently not available until, at the earliest, 1672 and possibly as late as 1675. The present copy is the second issue of the first edition and is complete. Our definition of the first three issues of the first edition is as follows: 1) dated 1671, with both the "Arx Carolina" plate and the "Virginia pars australis..." map, without the "Carolina" map, possibly without the "Barbados" map, and with the plate list including the "Arx…" and "Virginia...," but not the "Carolina" or "Barbados." 2) dated 1671, with the "Carolina..." map replacing both the "Arx..." plate and the "Virginia..." map. The "Barbados" map is included, but the plate list still includes the "Arx…" and "Virginia...," but not the "Carolina" or "Barbados." 3) dated 1671, with the "Carolina..." map replacing both the "Arx..." plate and the "Virginia..." map. The "Barbados" map is include, and the plate list has been removed and substituted by a reset cancel that no longer includes either the "Arx…" or the "Virginia...," but probably still does not include the "Carolina" or "Barbados." These definitions are somewhat at variance with Cumming GEOGRAPHICAL MISCONCEPTIONS, Baer MARYLAND and EUROPEAN AMERICANA - but they all contradict each other to some degree as well, and none of them agree with either Sabin or Borba de Moraes. 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 "Arctick Region," and the search for the northwest passage.

      Amsterdam, 1671 circa. Carta tratta dal "Latium" del Kircher e disegnata da Innocenzo Mattei incisione in rame all'acquaforte, cm 34,5 x 45,2 (alla lastra) pi? margini, titolo in cartiglio in basso a destra, piccola legenda a 16 voci in alto a destra con elencate le Porte di Roma. Athanasius Kircher (Germania, Geisa 1602 - Roma, 1680) fu gesuita tedesco e monaco camaldolese. Educato a Fulda divenne voracemente curioso e coltiv? i pi? svariati interessi, dagli studi filosofici e umanistici a quelli fisico matematici. Fu senz'altro uno degli uomini pi? influenti della sua epoca: fu nominato da papa Clemente X geografo pontificio, fu chiamato al Collegio Romano per la cattedra di matematica, fisica e lingue orientali, e fu profondo conoscitore della Cina, dell'Egitto (del 1652 ? la "Corographia originis Nili") e dell' Etiopia; tradusse scritti orientali (del 1676 ? lo scritto l'"Arca di No?") e per vari anni lavor? intensamente sui geroglifici egiziani, sostenendo di averli decifrati (malgrado buona parte dei suoi presupposti e delle sua tarduzioni siano stati smentiti). Effettu? uno studio scientifico sull'evoluzione della terra e sulle sue caratteristiche fisiche; scrisse un trattato sul funzionamento della bussola magnetica; a lui si deve la lanterna magica, per la quale ? probabilmente conosciuto ai pi?. Le mappe del suo libro, il "Mundus Subterraneus" (1665), uno studio sulla natura e sulla geologia della terra, che tratta di vulcani e terremoti, furono le prime a descrivere le maree e le correnti oceaniche, oltre a mostrare l'ubicazione di tutti i vulcani conosciuti all'epoca.

Svart hfrbd från 1800-talet med guldornerad rygg och blindpressade pappärmar, stänkta snitt. Med J. G. Sparwenfelds något beskurna namnteckning på titelbladet, och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Ej i Bring Itineraria. Warmholtz 4371, för delen som rör Sverige. Carlander II, 176. Består av tre delar: 1. Delle guerre civili de Polonia. 2. Relatione de Moscovia, och 3. La Svetia. Den venetianske poeten och diplomaten Alberto Vimina (hette egentligen Michele Bianchi) (1603-67) sändes i början av 1650-talet av republiken Venedig till Kosackhetmanen Chmelnitskij i Ukraina för att försöka förmå denne att gå i krig mot turkarna. Detta företag omöjliggjordes dock då krig bröt ut mellan kosackerna och Polen. Det var Viminas resa hem till Venedig som tog omvägen över Sverige. Han vistades i landet något halvår 1653-54, och mycket av hans skildring förefaller vara skriven under tiden, dock med en del senare gjorda tillägg. Vimina sändes senare på diplomatiskt uppdrag till Moskva, inte heller där nådde han några resultat. Behållningen av hans vidlyftiga resande blev istället dessa postumt publicerade skildringar. Viminas skildring av Sverige bygger, enligt Curt Weibull (Skandia 1973), delvis på egna iakttagelser och delvis på Henricus Soterus verk "Svecia, sive de Suecorum regis dominiis et opibus." (1631) och den däri ingående uppsatsen av Anders Bure. Vimina beskriver Sveriges geografi och det svenska folkets seder och bruk, samt även de exotiska lapparna. Med djup beundran skildrar han drottning Kristina och hennes hov. Här framlägger han den för svensk propaganda oacceptabla ståndpunkten att Kristina redan som svensk drottning i hemlighet övergått till katolicismen. Enligt Warmholtz, "en sälsynt bok" och "Man finner hos honom, ibland flere oriktigheter, ochså någre grundade anmärkningar om Sweriges då varande tillstånd". Bra proveniens ur orientalisten och lärdomsgiganten Johan Gabriel Sparwenfelds (1655-1727) bibliotek. Han köpte under sina olika resor mängder av böcker och handskrifter, och donerade sedan många av sina böcker till olika bibliotek, t.ex. sällsynta böcker och manuskript på arabiska, persiska etc. till Uppsala
