Montanus, Arnoldus:
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 origin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spanheim, Ezechiel.
Apud Danielem Elsevirium, 1671. Important treatise on ancient numismatics, written by a prominent scholar, diplomat, and collector who was one of the first to combine genuine interest in coins and medals with antiquarian erudition. This is the second edition, following the first of 1664 but more highly illustrated than that printing; the volume includes numerous in-text copper engravings depicting coins and monuments, at least one of which is signed I. Wyngaerden. The title-page is printed in red and black, with Elzevir's Minerva vignette.

Penn, William:
London. 1671.. 20pp. Small quarto. Modern red calf. Evenly tanned, a few leaves soiled around edges. Withal, very good. Rare third edition of William Penn's second published work, a spirited espousal of his religious beliefs above and beyond any other faiths. He discusses the condition of humanity since the fall from the Garden of Eden, criticizes Catholics for their rituals and beliefs, and attacks Protestants for their intolerance. "The passion of a new convert is clearly evident in this short pamphlet in which [William Penn] denounced the wickedness and errors of Catholics and Protestants alike and declared that Quakers alone hold the key to 'Life and Salvation.' Not yet caught up in the pamphlet war that Friends waged against their enemies, [Penn] apparently issued this blast against all other Christians out of sheer exuberance during his first months as a Quaker" - Bronner & Fraser. Apparently no copies of this edition are on OCLC, nor is it listed in Smith or Whiting's bibliographies of Friends' books. Bronner & Fraser locate only two copies. A rare early work by the future founder of Pennsylvania, showing the intolerance of a new convert to the Society of Friends. BRONNER & FRASER, PENN BIBLIOGRAPHY 2C.

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).

Syms, Jacob Claesz)
Utrecht, L. Verhulst, 1671, (ii), 60 pp, (24). Rare pamphlet about a court case filed against an influential member of the Hoorn chamber of the Dutch East Indies Company. Jacob Symsz was ex-mayor of the town of Hoorn and president of the Hoorn chamber of the East Indies Company. It turned out that he was a fraud, enriching himself on an immense scale at the expense of the company. In 1671 the lords XVII started a commission to investigate the case. It turned out that, though Symsz had some accomplishes, he was certainly the initiator and main profitor of the fraud. The commission published their findings in this pamphlet. After publication of this pamphlet, a court case started. Symsz tried to rally all his political allies to escape conviction, but in 1673 he was nevertheless sentenced to pay 10,000 guilders and to never again serve in any public function. The pamphlet here on offer is the pamphlet published in 1671 by the VOC commission. The first 60 pp are the "autentiq verhael (authentic story), the last 24 pp are a long list of goods (mostly exotic spices) bought by Syms in 1663. This list was compiled by VOC bookkeeper D.

OGILBY, John.
London 1671 - Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Size: 35.5 x 29 cm. Fine condition. Attractive engraving of a statue of the Buddha Sakyamuni with all-seeing third eye in a temple. This fascinating copperplate engraving comes from a famous work originally published in Dutch by the trade diplomat Jan Nieuhoff, but translated into English by the British mapmaker and publisher John Ogilby. The images provide a document of early western contact with China and come from the account written by the diplomat Jan Nieuhoff who was the steward of the first Dutch trade Ambassadors to China. The Dutch East India Company was keen to persuade the Emperor to open up the Chinese ports to the Dutch, and Nieuhoff joined Pieter van Goyer and Jacob de Keyser on the mission to visit the Emperor Chun-Chi. The work includes many remarks on Chinese manners and customs, together with a second part comprising a general description of the Chinese Empire. The fine plates and illustrations show town views in China, Tibet and Tartary, together with subjects such as costumes and natural history. Atlas Chinensis is a superb work on China, noteworthy not only for text, bringing notice of the mysteries of the East to English readers, but for the magnificent engraved illustrations and plates.

N/a
London-Robert Clavel, Tho. Passinger et. al, 1671. Book. A rare book with illustrated title page and portrait frontispiece. Samuel Clarke is best known as the writer of the Lives of Sundry Modern Divines. He was an Anglican clergyman and was relatively well-connected, though never achieved great stature in the church. Clarke was born in Warwickshire in 1599 and died in 1682. He was pastor of St. Bennet Fink, London, until he was ejected in 1662. Besides theological works and a famous General Martyrology, Clarke published A True and Faithful Account of the Four Chiefest Plantations of the English in America and A New Description of the World. Condition: The binding is generally firm, though the book is disbound. The illustrated title page, frontispiece and title page are all detached but present. Pages 697-702 are also detached but present, as is the first page of the alpabetical table at the rear of the book. The rest of the book is detached and missing however. The illustrated title page, frontispiece and title page are all chipped to the edges with some loss, and there is a closed tear to the first page of text. The first few pages at the front of the book are also creased. The book is generally clean and bright apart from some isolated spotting and handling marks. There is also some worming to the text. Very Good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
