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. Soop *** Rare. Internally a good copy, but rather amateurishly bound in recent boards. 19th c. library- and removal stamp of the Amsterdam University library on title (round stamp with lions and triple crosses of Amsterdam, with circular text Biblioth. Amstelaed. Vendidit), small old ex-owners signature just below the stamp. Two leaves are loose, a small corner chipped off first blank, else the contents are in very good condition.

OGILBY, John.
London, 1671. Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Fine condition. Size: 35.5 x 29 cm. 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]

Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law.

JUDICHÆR, SØREN POULSEN:
Med Reguler, Forklaringer, Exempler, Eftertænckninger oc Paafindelser, sammenskreffven aff Severin Povelsøn. Kiøbenhaffn: Christen Jensen Wering 1671. [40] + 612 + [4] s. 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 Syvs 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. Danica 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.

Oxford, Excudebat G.H. et G.D., sumptibus John Williams, George West, Amos Curteyne & John Crosley, 1671. Folio. 8,830pp. Second Oxford edition, first published 1670. This famous dictionary of people, places, names, antiquities, coins, deities, literature, etc., originally published in 1530 by Charles Estienne, of the celebrated family of printers, was enormously corrected, re-edited, and added to by Nicolaus Lloyd of Oxford "An harmless, quiet man, and an excellent philologist," (DNB) who spent 30 years on the project. The title in ink, in gothic script, on the fore- edge, is characteristic of early libraries, where the books were shelved spine-in. Light toning of paper, and some marginal nicks to title, not affecting printed area. Otherwise fine in a modern cloth binding. (Cordell 123. Lowndes 2507. BL 1487.w.4.)., Fine

SCHEFFERUS, JOHANNES.
Frankfurt, ex officina Zunneriana, typis J. Andreæ, 1671. 4:o. Extra grav. titelblad,(6),286,(2 blanka) + 422,(2) s. Med träsnitt och kopparstick i texten. Samtida pergamentbd med prydligt textad ryggtitel och lite kladdig årtalsangivelse under denna. Stänkta snitt. Spricka i främre ytterfalsen och tre smärre lagade revor i pergamentet på ryggen. Lite skeva pärmar, den bakre fläckig och den främre med obetydligt litet hål. Lätt lager- och småfläckig samt med spridda fuktränder. Spår av borttaget exlibris på främre pärmens insida. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 826. VD17 23:237989W. Schefferus behandlar här det antika fordonsväsendet utifrån kulturhistoriska, tekniska och arkeologiska perspektiv. Sten Lindroth menar att det är Schefferus "mest omfattande bidrag till den klassiska arkeologin" och fortsätter: "Ämnet var inte oviktigt. För det ekonomiska livet, och därmed för hela den antika civilisationen, spelade landtransportens former en avgörande roll. Med all sin bundenhet till de litterära källorna hade 1600-talets humanister ett levande sinne för tekniska och kulturhistoriska realiteter, som förebådar en långt senare tids forskningsinriktning. Schefferus beskriver med flödande dokumentation alla slags vagnar och andra transportmedel brukade av greker och romare, också bärstolar, bårar o.d. Där möter kejsar Heliogabalus' pärlbeströdda guldvagn, sexspann och enkla packvagnar, processionsvagnar och lieförsedda stridsvagnar; seltyg och hjulkonstruktioner undersöks med teknisk ackuratess".
