MONTANUS, Arnoldus.
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 engrav … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLEMING, Robert
[Amsterdam : s.n.], Printed in the year 1671. Second edition. (edition comes from Wing) - 1671 Fulfillment of Scripture Fleming Scotland OT Bible Prophecy Presbyterian “Here we should have a most pleasant and clear view, how the Scripture of God, comprehenseth, the whole state of the Church, from the beginning to the end of time.” Fulfilling of the Scripture According to Lowndes, “This elaborate work, by a Presbyterian divine, contains a view of the operations of Providence in preserving the church through all the vicissitudes of ecclesiastical history.” Robert Fleming considered the church to be in a period of ‘dark time,’ but sought to justify it as being part of God’s providential plan. According to Raffe, Scottish Presbyterians saw Scotland as a modern-day Israel, ‘a land whose history was prefigured in the Old Testament.’ (Raffe, 103). Ultimately, Fleming looked at Scotland as being the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. Authorship and edition found in Wing. Item number: #502 Price: $499 FLEMING, Robert The fulfilling of the Scripture, or An essay shewing the exact accomplishment of the Word of God in his works of providence, performed & to be performed.
